PHD Geneticist and Pharmacological Discovery specialist teaching Math
As a molecular geneticist working in pharmaceutical discovery, I spent my career understanding and applying math, chemistry and biology in a real world context. Through WyzAnt, I now share this experience with many successful students who benefit from my practical and pupil-specific explanations of how things work and how they make sense to anyone if presented in a manner that makes sense to a particular individual.

Outstanding Algebra Tutor
It is my pleasure to recommend James P as an Algebra tutor. My son was taking a 5 week summer course in Algebra at a local college. The course was extremely fast-paced and less than a week before the final, our son requested that we hire a tutor to explain key concepts. After searching through numerous profiles for Algebra tutors, we settled on Mr. P because of his stated ability to “explain apparently complex issues to people at many levels of sophistication without distorting the truth and being friendly, approachable and flexible.” I can honestly say that Mr. P delivered on this assertion which resulted in a positive experience for our son and in the Algebra class. His professionalism, follow-through, and integrity exemplify his trustworthiness as an instructor. The bottom line is our son was successful on the final and received a B+ for the course. Also, our son requested to continue the tutoring sessions (even though the class is over) due to Mr. P's gift for explaining complicated math issues. This is a first for son and directly related to Mr. P’s guidance and encouragement to learn.

Absolutely Wonderful!!
Highly recommended! James is extremely patient, kind, and very encouraging. My son has a much better understanding of Pre-Calculus thanks to James...and his confidence level has improved tremendously. Can’t thank him enough!

James has been my tutor for over 6 months now. He has been extremely helpful and dependable. He is kind, patient, and a really good teacher. He is great at explaining and takes his time when doing so. On top of it, he has a really cool Scottish accent!

Great tutor!!
My daughter is working with James for her Pre-ap math class because she struggles on some subjects and he is great. He takes his time and shows her how to think about the problem and break it down without getting frustrated, work it out and use easier methods. He is super patient and answers all her questions. She loves working with him.

Superb Math & Science Tutor
James really cares about ensuring his students understand their stuff so that they can start working on their own quickly. We had several other tutors before, but James clearly surpasses all of them. Our son finally started to engage and become interested in Math and study in general ! What a difference !

My daughter had struggled with understanding her College Algebra class, but James has not only been helpful in teaching her but also giving her the confidence she needs to move forward. I highly recommend him!

Chemistry Tutor
This was our first lesson with Jim. He was punctual and earnest. My son felt he explained the concepts well and gained greater insight than what he was getting in the class. We plan to continue with Jim.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor
James obviously masters his subject but he is also an outstanding pedagogue. He took time after the lesson to give us an honest feedback and precious recommendations to suit our child's learning style and challenges. I will recommend him without hesitation.
