About James

I have enjoyed math and science since I was very young and have as my goal sharing my enthusiasm with others. It is my belief that everyone has natural abilities and interest in these subjects but many have been turned off by poor teaching and have incorrectly decided that they lack ability.

It is also true in my experience that each student has a different style of learning; it is the responsibility of both teacher and student working together to find the best way for the student to master the subject matter.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Special Needs

My special needs daughter has taught me a great deal about teaching someone with developmental delays. Areas of particular needs have included a smaller vocabulary than other children her age, theory of mind issues (typical of autism spectrum disorders) and broad areas of cognitive deficits mixed with superior splinter skills.

Perhaps the most important lesson for me has been believing in her; even when her words are garbled it only takes an effort to discover what she means, and I can be assured that she means something.

Through intensive work (mostly provided by therapists), she has made and continues to make remarkable progress. From my point of view, a much strengthed sense of self is emerging- perhaps due to therapy, perhaps maturation, perhaps a combination of these. In any event, she appears more and more "normal".

While I have learned primarily from her, I believe that many of the skills and techniques which we (my wife and I) have learned are transferable to others with special needs.

Good Tutor

Jo feels that his lessons with James have helped him understand his school work more. He has told me that he looks forward to seeing James on the scheduled days and he was watching for James to arrive today so he could share his math test results from school. I feel from talking to Jo that he is finding math more enjoyable and James does a good job keeping Jo engaged and interested. We are happy w
