James, Teacher of Math, Science, and the SAT

I am an experienced tutor, focusing on Math, Science, and SAT/ACT Prep. I have over 10 years of experience, and I specialize in taking hard concepts in math and science and making them relatable to anyone. I build confidence one problem at a time. It is my firm belief that every student can succeed! Before becoming a tutor I worked as a middle school math teacher and a high school physics teacher in Washington D.C. Later I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a Master of Divinity at Fuller T... [more]


Algebra 1

I have over ten years of experience teaching algebra 1 in the classroom and one-on-one. Algebra 1 was hard for me when I was first learning in middle school, so I know what it's like to see a variable and freeze. Over the years I've worked hard to take the abstract in algebra and make it concrete. Let's work together!


Algebra 2

I have over ten years of experience teaching algebra 2 in the classroom and one-on-one. Algebra 2 was hard for me when I was first learning in middle school, so I know what it's like to see a variable and freeze. Over the years I've worked hard to take the abstract in algebra and make it concrete. Let's work together!


Calculus

Calculus can seem so intimidating, many students avoid the subject, never even trying to take their first derivative. But fear not! Calculus is actually one of the most interesting maths you can study. I specialize in making calculus what it should be: a fun and fascinating topic that can open up the world around you. Let's work together and you'll not only get better grades, you may find yourself seeing math as fun for the first time!


Chemistry

I've tutored Chemistry students of all abilities for over ten years! The key in chemistry is pairing two skills: memorization and basic algebra. It looks scary because of all the weird symbols and new terms, but if you learn the language of chemistry, most of the problems are fairly simple. I work hard to help you bring together the concepts, the language, and the math to ensure your success!


Geometry


Physics

Physics is the language of the universe! But that language can often seem weird, out of place with what we experience in everyday life. I have been spent years as a physics teacher and tutor translating the language of physics into something anyone can understand. Let's work together, and make physics what it was meant to be: a window into the amazing wonder all around us!


Prealgebra


Precalculus


Trigonometry


Statistics


SAT Math


SAT Writing


ACT English

I've studied multiple languages, linguistics, and I have a Master's degree in Theology. But I am equally gifted in math and science, and I bring a rigorous statistical approach to studying for the verbal sections on the ACT and SAT. My students learn the skills that lead to quick improvement in test scores and confidence in reading and writing.


ACT Math

I've been an ACT Math tutor for over ten years. When I work with a student, I do a comprehensive assessment of a students abilities and then design a program customized to their individual needs. Over time, your student will gain confidence in their own abilities and be ready for whatever the test can throw at them. Let's work together to build a better future!
