I previously worked as a Computer Specialist and Project Manager at a large oil company in many different jobs. Before that, I was at the Johnson Space Center, where I worked on software to assist in the design and testing of the first Space Shuttle. I have a degree in Math with Honors and a Master's in Computer Science and have used both in my work. I have done tutoring for Computer Science and Programming, Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Project Management, SAP, and Technical writing with excellent results. I have been a teacher, programmer, software architect, technical lead, project manager, and line manager.

Great, Knowledgeable and patient

Quick to respond and thoroughly ready for the lesson, James quickly put my daughter at ease with her concerns in AP computer class. It means a lot to know that my daughter. Can spend more time enjoying her high school year rather spend that time comprehending complicated algorithms.

Marianna , 3 lessons with James

Excellent tutor!

My son was having a hard time in AP computer science class. I saw James background experience, and decided to go with James. My son likes him because he took time explaining the problem, and my son understood what James was teaching him.

Amazing Tutor

James is very knowledgeable and patient. He is helping prepare my son for his AP computer A and Principle exam. He has been very helpful and will continue to help my son until the day of his test. Thank you James, it is difficult to find someone with your experience and feel grateful to have found you.

James G

James has helped me accomplish an A in AP computer science but that's not only what makes James a good tutor. What makes James a good tutor is his ability and willingness to help others succeed in whatever major or courses they are struggling in. Also his ability to break down complex information in a form of way that will help you best understand the material being given.

Nathalia, 36 lessons with James

Superb depth of MS Excel knowledge

For work I create and use complicated spreadsheets designed to handle thousands of rows of data. I needed someone with greater Excel knowledge than I to tutor and guide me in areas where my own knowledge is weak or non-existent. Jim's background and expertise enabled me to quickly get to the immediate core issues and to develop a road map forward.

Bill, 4 lessons with James

Extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind.

James is the best. He helped me even though it was last minute. James explained everything that I needed help with. I couldn't ask for a nicer or more knowledgeable tutor. I would definitely ask James for help again!

Niki , 1 lesson with James

Very good explainer and teacher

James was very good at explaining and teaching me how to code for AP Computer Science A. I highly suggest James if you need help with computer science, or if you just want to learn how to code for fun.
