Bio

Hi there! My name is Jimmy, and I graduated as an Honors Scholar from NYU with a degree in Mathematics. As someone with a deep love and appreciation for math, and extensive experience working with students and kids, I would be thrilled to work to help you achieve what you'd like to achieve in math.

Hi there! My name is Jimmy, and I graduated as an Honors Scholar from NYU with a degree in Mathematics. As someone with a deep love and appreciation for math, and extensive experience working with students and kids, I would be thrilled to work to help you achieve what you'd like to achieve in math.

Throughout high school and college, the math classes I've most enjoyed and connected with have been the ones with the greatest teachers/professors. My high school calc teacher's boundless energy and enthusiasm for math made me excited to go to class every day. My college Analysis professor's creativity, kindness, and humor made me comfortable asking questions and stretching myself in a subject that was far from easy to grasp. My Fluid Dynamics professor's patience and clear desire for his students to understand the subject as fully as he did made me fascinated and enthralled by a subject I normally wouldn't have been all that excited by. This is the sort of experience I hope to bring to my students.

In high school, I spent a year tutoring my math teacher's son, spending time every week with him working on improving his skills and grades in Algebra and Geometry. Later on, I volunteered in my school's math tutoring lab for a year, where I helped other high school students in subjects ranging from Algebra to BC Calculus. I also have extensive experience as a camp counselor at a sleep-away camp in Maine, where I spent 8 weeks each summer constantly working with children aged 7-15. I also spent three years in college teaching environmental science to New York City first and second graders every week. Through all my experience working with children, from elementary school to high school, I've learned the importance of patience, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude in helping students learn.

I truly believe that math can be a wonderfully engaging and fascinating subject, as long as it is taught in the right way. With years of experience both tutoring in math and working with children and teenagers, I would love to

Amazing!

Amazing!! Jimmy has blown us away with how much my sons SAT scores have increased..almost 200 points! Since Blake has started working with Jimmy he has not missed a single point in his math class. We will definitely be using Jimmy for our daughter!

Knowledgeable, patient and fun

My 8th grader immediately took to Jimmy and was excited to get into algebra 1. He empowered my son to identify where he needed help and was flexible about finding the right cadence. Great tutor!

A great tutor

Jimmy was incredibly helpful to my son, he tutored him in calculus and was a significant source of help to my son during the school year. He is very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with and is able to explain concepts and problems in a simple and easy to understand way. He is also very flexible, and was willing to accommodate us whenever we had conflicts. I’m exceptionally grateful to him for all the help he has given to us this year.

Knowledgeable and patient

Jimmy was very helpful in reviewing for SAT Math. After one session , I was already much more confident . I would highly recommend to anyone in need of a tutor.

Knows how explain topics

He knows how to explain the difficult topics that I didn’t understand. He even can answer the questions that I ask so I can fully understand the topics. Overall a wonderful tutor

Easy Going and Very Knowledgeable

Jimmy taught ACT Math to my Son for the past 3 months. I can notice Abdullah gained confidence in Math through his teaching style. He was clear in the explanation, I can feel my son was opening up with questions and he was very easy to get along. Unfortunately, we lost an excellent Math teacher in him, when Jimmy wanted to pursue his other job options. We would love to hire him anytime, if he is free. We wish him the best in his career.

Knowledgable and patient tutor of Calculus BC

Jimmy was very patient and went with me step by step until I was able to understand the problem concept. He answered all of my questions and I look forward to working with him again. Highly recommended

Jimmy B. And His ACT Tutoring

Before I met Jimmy for the sessions, I struggled a lot with having a good grasp of the math section on the ACT. I'm a student that can understand math well. However, when it comes down to things similar to this test, that becomes a whole different story. So Jimmy helped me with that. He reviewed the math involved with these kinds of tests, linear & shape geometry, algebra, etc. And he breaks it down with the most important content you'd need to know through his lessons. He'd send in a practice packet from the online ACT sample tests before your scheduled lessons and review the questions you might've gotten wrong or struggled on. These practice tests do come in very handy. I like how he uses this method within every session because the more you review these practice tests, the better you'd understand the content, and your performance greatly improves. The goal was to master and improve my math so I could be prepared for the ACT, and that is what Jimmy has helped me accomplish.
