Science and Math can be your best subjects
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.

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 !

Great teacher! Very helpful!
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.

Awesome tutor
Great at teaching complex equations in a very simple way, can break down the problems to help easy understanding. Patient and strives for the students best. Stay until you absolutely understand everything, does not mind staying late.

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.

Joy in teaching = Joy in learning
Its obvious that James P. loves what he does. Within 10 minutes, he had my daughter's full attention and a frequent chorus of "ooohhhh" - for the whole hour. She gets it! Two lessons in and she's realized she's ~not~ math dumb. We feel very fortunate to have connected with the right-for-my-kid tutor on our first try!

A GREAT MATH TUTOR
James is very patient and kind to my son. He is taking his time to get to know exactly what my son needs and how he should approach him. James is very intuitive and picked up on my son's personality immediately. He is very thorough and just wants to make sure that he is helping my son to the best of his ability. James encourages questions and dialogue and doesn't just sit there talking and explaining something that my son is clueless about. My son just took his 1st test since being tutored by James and he was very confident and did not feel stressed out like he has been on previous math test days! James also took time out to speak with me and let me know how he thought my son felt about math and what we could do to help him to become more confident regarding the subject. I would highly recommend James as a math tutor and we look forward to him working with our son in the future.
