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.
