My ability to tutor Middle and High School Math and Computer Science, and to prepare students for college work in these areas, comes from decades as a computer programmer, technical writer, and technical support representative, working for companies ranging from start-ups to such Fortune 500 firms as Apple Computer. I recently spent three years in the classroom, and as an after-school tutor, for a private middle and high school, teaching the above and other subjects to students with learning ...

James was an amazing Geometry tutor and I could honestly not be more grateful. I began lessons with him stuck in a rut with math, frustrated, resentful towards the subject, and not enjoying it at all. His tutoring was a safe space for me to ask questions, clear up my confusion, and learn at my own pace without any shame, and for the first time ever I've begun to consider Math to be my favourite subject. Before James tutored me, I was at an F, now, just a few months later, I'm at an A and am still awaiting some exam results back that will hopefully get me to an A+. I could not have achieved this change without the help of James, and not only is he a great tutor, he's an excellent person and I enjoyed lessons with him so much that I genuinely looked forward to them. James has set me down a new path in my math career and I'm incredibly thankful for it. I 100% recommend James as a tutor.

Great help teaching my son Lua Programming for Roblox. Really appreciate the time he's taking getting ready for the classes and helping him. Thanks, James.

James tutored my 11-year-old son in Python for several months. James is very knowledgeable about Python and did an excellent job taking complex coding concepts and making them easy to understand. He also created weekly homework assignments that complemented each lesson. James is very patient and friendly and my son enjoyed his lessons. I Highly recommend James to anyone looking for a skilled Python tutor.

We reviewed the split function, then James showed me how to use dictionaries, and the get function. He also gave me a good explanation of the bag of words model. It was really helpful, as it allowed me to deal better with one of the assignments of the class. James is very knowledgeable about these things and I like how he explained concepts that were difficult for me to understand, by dividing them into smaller parts.

This is our 1st lesson on Pascal Fundamentals. James is very knowledgeable, articulate, and responsive. Great with middle schoolers. He appears to really enjoy teaching, which is great.

James has been coming and helping my son with algebra and geometry. He is always on schedule and extremely patient and professional with my son. He is building confidence in my son and making him that much stronger of a student.

James is knowledgeable and patient. He knows his material and is able to explain it in a clear way. My son enjoyed his session and found it to be very productive and helpful. We would recommend James as a Java tutor.
