Mr. James is a great tutor. If you need a patient person to work with and teach you or your child math/algebra then he fits the bill. After every session, I would ask my son if he felt like he was learning and if he understood what he was taught, the answer was "yes". He told me that Mr. James breaks down the information so he understood exactly what he was doing. Mr. James worked around his schedule and our busy schedule to accommodate my child's learning needs. I appreciate his kind spirit and willingness to teach without frustration. To teach, you must love what you do and Mr. James has a love for math; its shows though and though.

I have been working with Crystal for nearly a year now and she is wonderful. She is very patient and detail oriented. She responded almost instantly to my request upon searching for a tutor when I desperately needed one. She is very flexible with meeting times and locations. I am very pleased with Crystal's work. I always do well on my test after our sessions.

Wilton is a patient, engaging teacher who uses real-world examples and experiences to illustrate difficult AP Physics concepts. My teenage son, who is not easily impressed by anyone over the age of 30, admitted that "He really knows his stuff." It was an excellent session and we look forward to more!

I can help you with that, and I can help you sort out the difficulties of solving for x, and why we have to do so in the first place.
Topics here usually include: Real/Non-Real numbers, Rational/Irrational Numbers, Integers, Solving Algebraic Expressions and Equations using variables, Graphing Algebraic equations Word Problem Applications and many more. ... More
