About James


Bio

I graduated with a double major Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I have tutored for around 15 years now. I want to help people understand these subjects in an intuitive way, so that they're not just memorizing formulas, but make the connection about why things the way they are. I've found that students who come to understand concepts in this way do much better. I've spent most of my time tutoring calculus, algebra, and data structures, but I will be more than happy to...

I graduated with a double major Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I have tutored for around 15 years now. I want to help people understand these subjects in an intuitive way, so that they're not just memorizing formulas, but make the connection about why things the way they are. I've found that students who come to understand concepts in this way do much better. I've spent most of my time tutoring calculus, algebra, and data structures, but I will be more than happy to assist with other subjects.
During college, my data structures course was notoriously difficult, but I tutored multiple people in it that were able to finish with an A. Recently, I have been tutoring students nearby in calculus, which I enjoy tremendously. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or to schedule some time.

Lots of knowledge

We reviewed two programs. Fixed issues with error logs sending to api. James reviewed all code on both programs. Parsed xml to json to send to api. Reviewed python modules. Always a great class with James.

Excelent tutor

James has a great way to explain difficult concepts. He took the time to understand my struggle and he provided me with sufficient details and examples. I am very grateful that I was tutored by James!

Mihai, 3 lessons with James

Very explanatory

James is a very thorough teacher and explains things in great detail. He is very understanding and is open to as many questions you need in order for you to be in absolute understanding. I would recommend him for being meticulous and patient on any level of programming. Thanks, James!!!

Very Knowledgeable highly recommend

James pointed me to the right direction, I'm new to python and was scared of some data types he walked me through it with ease and patience. He's a very knowledgeable tutor.

Linear Algebra

James is awesome at explaining in such a way that he keeps it really simple, he just a genius. This is the best way that I can describe him because he grasped things really quickly and find a way to convey the information back to you so you can understand and he is really patient.
