I enjoy being a math tutor. Math can be a challenging subject, but there is a true sense of satisfaction when you see the student actually understand the material and feel a confidence in working the problems. I believe Math is best learned by doing and working problems. My goal is to reduce frustration and create confidence. I believe in working problems in a step-by-step approach and trying to make it understandable.

James is the best tutor I have ever had. He is patient, humorous, intelligent, but down to earth and walks you through your lessons. Even when I feel small and do not understand, he takes time to break it down in terms that I can understand and relate it to my field of study. He has caused me to think different, logically in order to get the concept of what is being taught. In the past I have failed statistics exams, but on my last exam I received a B+ (88%), amazing. I feel more confident
with the subject and comfortable with the material. Awesome tutor!
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.
