I'm an expert in working with students to develop skills and to understand concepts. My expertise is especially strong in problem solving, and applying concepts to real world situations. I enjoy working with students. When my son was in college, we used to problem solve on the phone and via email. His classmates wanted him to "rent me out".

I'm a 25-year veteran of Silicon Valley with multiple degrees in Engineering. I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the Golden Gate University Schoo...

Jim was the absolute best tutor I have ever had! He met with me while I was attempting to take a college level precalculus course for the third time. I was not sure I would ever be able to pass this course until I started meeting with Jim. He helped explain math to me in a way that changed my whole perspective on the course. Thanks to Jim I received an A in that precalculus course this summer, and I no longer believe I am bad at math. I highly recommend Jim as a tutor to anyone who is struggling with math or sciences!

Jim carefully goes through my daughter's lessons, works with her on the homework, and simplifies the concepts so she "gets" it. Transformed her from a C to an A. My daughter is really enjoying her class and has the confidence/comfort with Algebra 2. Excellent tutor! Thanks Jim.

My middle school son is working with Jim online to prepare study guides for his classes and upcoming exams. My son really liked the first session and looks forward to the next one. Thank you, Jim.

My son liked how Jim held him accountable for learning and would not let up until the concepts were understood. My son also enjoyed Jim's personality and they got along well.

Jim is great at helping my son understand the complexities of chemistry and Algebra 2. In a pinch, he can help with writing too. A lot of my son?s anxiety has been alleviated thanks to Jim.

Jim just started helping my 16-year-old mathaphobic son with geometry. He's clarifying concepts that should help him in the classroom. My son has been very resistant to tutors before, but seems to do well with Jim.

Jim is a wonderful tutor. He has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra for the past few months. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and approachable. Jim explains concepts and mechanics in simple and understandable terms so math becomes less intimidating and frustrating. He efficiently focuses on the areas that need help but his approach is not heavy-handed. He takes the time to listen, praise hard work, and to affirm success. He is very responsive and flexible. Thanks to Jim, my daughter raised her Algebra grade and has gained a lot of confidence in her own abilities.

Jim brings patients and humor to all sessions! Great guy! Very knowledgeable in all areas I have needed help with in the last year or so. 160 and sixty characters is a lot of writing, but Jim is worth the effort!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Jerry D. from Mountain View, CA
For our first session, we worked on test taking skills for the Math portion of the SAT. Jim helped me "see" the problems and how to figure out quick solutions so that I can practice solving them more quickly and efficiently. He's very knowledgeable of the SAT tests and the SAT workbook that we were working from.
