About James

Need help from a great tutor? I guarantee that you will build great understanding of the topic you want to work on with me. I graduated from the University of Washington (Seattle) with a Geology B.S. in August 2013, and I've been tutoring/teaching Math, Physics, Chemistry, Spanish, and ESL since January 2011. I'm currently doing my Master's in geology at UTPB.

Together we'll identify the area(s) of the material where you can improve most, and we'll see how well you understand the ideas you need to know to complete your work. If you find your material to be complicated and frustrating, know that it doesn't have to be! I'll have you do your work more confidently, and I'll show you some neat tricks a long the way to save you even more time. If you don't think you need help to that extent, that's fine, too. I'll work with you however you'd like with these materials.
