About James

I am working on a physics teaching degree at BYU and have spent four years substitute teaching or tutoring. I love helping people understand new things, and have been 'translating' between teachers and students since I was in elementary school.

I try to adjust my tutoring to the style a given student seems to learn from best. One thing I do try to be consistent about is allowing students to do as much as they can with what they know already, and then providing support or instruction when it is needed. I find this helps students to remember knowledge or skills later on exams or in-class assignments.

I am very person focused. Let me know what your goals are and I will strive to help you to achieve them, and then surpass them. I look forward to meeting you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have studied math extensively in connection with my pursuit of a degree in physics teaching. In high school I got a 5 out of 5 on the AP calculus exam, and have continued to enjoy my math classes since.

Physical Science

My emphasis in physical science is obviously in the physics part of it, but I have also taken courses on the earth science and chemistry aspects, and enjoy all three. I got a 36 on the science portion of the ACT while in high school.

Physics

Physics has fascinated me since I picked up a book on particle physics in sixth grade that had concepts I didn't see again until I got to college. I have majored in this subject at BYU and am now a junior.

Vocabulary

I have always done well in my English classes and continue to enjoy both reading and writing. I often write as a hobby, and have attended writer's conferences as an adult as well.

James helped my son do homework and test review for his physics class. He is now ready for his exam and very grateful for his knowledge and teaching methods. James has a clear ability to tutor well.
