About Jim

I have a degree in Education from U Maine-Machias. I have taught high school and/or middle level math for fifty years. During that time I have worked with many different learning styles with a great deal of success. I have also spent many summers working with high school math departments throughout the country. I worked with these teachers to help them develop their math curriculum while using best teaching practices. I am highly qualified.

I have tutored math students off and on for the past forty years. I prefer to work with these students on a one to one basis. I will spend the first session determining their learning style and then needs. From this point we will progress at their rate until they a comfortable with the topic. I believe a lot of this success is determined by the relationship that is forged between the student and teacher. I look forward to helping your young mathematician develop a respect and understanding of math-which is not a dirty four letter word. Thanks for the opportunity.

I have taught both honors pre calculus and pre calculus for more than ten years at Lawrence High School in Fairfield, Maine. I have taken two classes in this subject over the years. I feel that I am well qualified to tutor pre calculus. Thanks, Jim
