Hello, I’m Mr D. I have been teaching and tutoring for about 30 years. I am a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and earned a masters degree from the University of Central Missouri. Following my Air Force career, I earned a secondary math teacher certification from the Texas Education Agency.
I was a high school math teacher for 27 years, teaching all levels of math through calculus AB. Since 2008 I have been an adjunct professor at a local community college where I teach primarily college algebra and precalculus. I recently became certified to teach online courses, and began teaching remotely in spring 2020.
I have been private tutoring throughout my teaching career. I really enjoy working one-on-one with students and aim to send them away from each lesson with both knowledge and increased confidence.
I hope I can be of service.

Knowledgeable and kind teacher

James is a professional AP Calc AB teacher, explains the topics in a very organized manner and thorough details. He is kind and extremely knowledgeable

Rita, 5 lessons with James

Helpful and easy to follow math tutor

James tutored my son in trigonometry and pre-calc. Right away he offered handouts that provided a quick reference for formulas. His demeanor was patient and he was able to break down complicated problems making the material seem simple. After one lesson he had clarified the material and my son felt much more confident.

So helpful and extremely patient

I’ve met a few tutors on Wyzant and James the best, by far. He’s so patient and knowledgeable and I can tell that he really wants me to understand! I’m taking Precal and Calculus back to back and I’d be lost without James!

Maggie, 12 lessons with James

Great!

He is very patient with my daughter and he tries to explain to her the way her instructor teaches. Calculus is not so intimidating anymore. She looks forward to working with James again. Thank you so much!

Lin, 6 lessons with James

Experienced Tutor.

My son has rejected several tutors for different reasons. James is the first tutor that was able to help my son. They worked on integrals. He requested my son to email him his homework ahead of time so he could prepare for the lesson. During the lesson he was straight to the point, calm, organized, professional. I could tell that he has many years of experience. What a find and for such a reasonable rate!

Amazing tutor

Phenomenal tutor eager to help students of all ages learn algebra. Patient and able to explain concepts in a simple and easy to understand manner. The best tutor teacher I have had with advanced math topics. He’s quick and able to tell exactly where you need help in solving problems and so encouraging. He can break it down into fundamentals and fill in gaps where you’ve missed learning something in the past and catch you up to where you need to be. Highly recommended and would refer anyone to Mr. James D. Kind and professional to work with.

Rachel, 24 lessons with James

Excellent

My son learned a great deal and wants another appointment. He is very happy with the lesson. He was learning Trigonometry in high school. Thank you James for your help

Great math tutor!

James reviewed Pre-calculus with my son. My son said that he was an excellent and knowledgeable tutor. We will definitely schedule additional lessons with James. Thank you!

Very knowledgeable and thorough

He helped me review for an exam. He was very thorough with any questions I had and patient. James made sure I fully understood the questions/answers. He also sent me worksheets that would help.
