About James


Bio

I have a BS in Microbiology with a Minor in Chemistry. Currently I work as a Laboratory Assistant, but I have a passion for education. Most of my previous clients were either adults returning to college to seek a career change, or high-school students who need some extra help with Algebra, Chemistry, or Physics.

In my experience when an individual seeks out a tutor, more information is not what they need or want. If you have a teacher or a textbook, then you have all the information. ...

I have a BS in Microbiology with a Minor in Chemistry. Currently I work as a Laboratory Assistant, but I have a passion for education. Most of my previous clients were either adults returning to college to seek a career change, or high-school students who need some extra help with Algebra, Chemistry, or Physics.

In my experience when an individual seeks out a tutor, more information is not what they need or want. If you have a teacher or a textbook, then you have all the information. What my clients usually need, rather is someone to affirm for them that they have synthesized that information correctly, clear up misconceptions as they arise, and help develop a mental framework for new information.

I also believe that the best kind of tutor, is the one who works himself out of a job. As much as I enjoy working with all my clients, I always hope that my most lasting contribution will be that they learn to develop academic strategies that will make them confident and independent learners.

Consequently, I find that it is most useful to have sessions centered around a clients academic assignments (homework), so that we can determine very specifically where the anxieties lie, work through them and then perhaps anticipate what may be ahead.
