About James


Bio

Hi!

My name is James and my most recent educational endeavor was in Biomedical Engineering (emphasis on signal processing and medical devices). During my time at Johns Hopkins, I did projects on RAGT (Robot Assisted Gait Training) control systems, analyzed gait patterns in ALS, CP, and stroke patients, and worked on BCI (Brain-Computer Interface) prosthetic control and pattern detection. Since graduating with my Master's, I have been working as Data Scientist and Analyst, although I have a...

Hi!

My name is James and my most recent educational endeavor was in Biomedical Engineering (emphasis on signal processing and medical devices). During my time at Johns Hopkins, I did projects on RAGT (Robot Assisted Gait Training) control systems, analyzed gait patterns in ALS, CP, and stroke patients, and worked on BCI (Brain-Computer Interface) prosthetic control and pattern detection. Since graduating with my Master's, I have been working as Data Scientist and Analyst, although I have a strong passion for teaching in my spare time.

Tutoring and mentoring high achieving students has been a major part of my life since 2004. During that time I have done everything from SAT and AP test prep to teaching college courses and (almost) everything in between. As a tutor, I have assisted hundreds of students with college prep including courses, activities, and application essay planning and revision. Many of my former students have gone on to universities such as Brown, Berkeley, and NYU. My teaching experience spans from educating middle school students all the way up to grad school students, so I am able to adapt to quite a range of academic levels.

Lately, my tutoring time has been dedicated to mentoring students and assisting them in developing research projects. Recent topics have included bioinformatics, data analysis, and MRI techniques. Furthermore, I have trained mentees in the requisite knowledge to perform related research, write up research papers and abstracts, and design posters for conferences around the U.S.

If my background appeals to you, I would love to chat with you further.

Have a great day!

Film

Hi! I previously tutored two students through the Film program at UCLA. The BA student was more focused on writing, editing, stage design, those sort of things. The other has a minor in film, more on the history/aesthetics/analysis side. Both graduated with very high GPAs (both had Magna-level honors).

After years as a hobbyist CAD designer, I ran my own business doing CAD for clients from 2017 to 2019. I still do commissioned CAD designs in my free time. I usually use Fusion360, although I have used a wide range of CAD tools over the years.

Anthropology

Anthropology

I took a bachelor's in Anthropology where I took coursework in Native American culture covering both physical and cultural details of native peoples. It included the Pacific Northwest, South and Central America, and First People of Canada. I learned Native habitat construction, cultural behaviors, Native food preparation, and how to develop and sustain food cultivars. I also studied environmental considerations affecting tribal groups throughout North America and Africa. Furthermore, I studied European food cultures, Middle Eastern and African tribal customs, and South American (Brazilian) tribal groups. I did (a submitted for publication) first-person research on tattoo symbolism in the Central Valley of California.

Knowledgable, efficient, personable, great communication

I was amazed at James efficiency and ability to connect. He helped our son build up the skills to complete a Fusion 360 project in 1/2 the time. Furthermore, he established such a great connection and rapport that our son went from reluctantly accepting help to scheduling the 3rd session by himself! James is very responsive both when communicating with me and with my son and he went out of his way to find the time to meet with our son on a short notice. He also helped me with gauging the time needed to complete the assignment (it was past due and time was critical) so that we could plan out the sessions. I cannot sing enough praises for James.
