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.

Knowledgeable, Patient Tutor and extremely helpful.

James has been great at reviewing the curriculum and deepening my understanding of the material. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We will definitely be using his services again.

Ed, 22 lessons with James

Very helpful because he really knows his Python!

I really appreciated the fact that he asked for and looked at my daughter's questions ahead of time to better help her AND my daughter said he was very knowledgeable about her college level Python course...the only one out of several tutors actually. We are very thankful we connected and he will be my daughter's go-to tutor from now on. Thanks, James!

Highly Recommend

I worked with James on a matplotlib, python and pandas project for a data analytics course. He definitely knows his stuff and helped me significantly on an issue I was experiencing. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some additional support with any of these programs.
