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'm also very adept at online tutoring, with hundreds of lessons taught, for students as far away as Denmark and Qatar. . 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".

Jim was able to review basic electrical engineering concepts and review algebra equations with multi-variables in a way that was easy to understand. He was patient and gave good explanations.

Dr Jim helped me last minute in a pinch when another tutor didn't end up showing up to an appointment we scheduled. I was so worried. He was so patient and he stayed with me on my physics report until I wasn't confused about anything anymore! He is such a knowledgeable and experienced tutor and very kind. You will never be disappointed by scheduling a session with him. Very reliable. Just book through him and not others. I had to learn that lesson the hard way.

My 7-th grader studied Physics with Jim this past year. Jim is patient and knowledgeable and always well prepared. He knows how to explain various concepts in a very approachable way, and makes learning interesting and fun. My son enjoyed his lessons very much.

Answered all of my marketing related case questions and helped me get started for my presentation. He was knowledgeable on all subject matter I had presented and had done research prior to our meeting. Thank you Jim!
- Scott C. from Baltimore, MD
There's not one time a session with Jim hasn't been a learning experience, and above all, a productive one where assignments get done. Reliable and hard working.
- Charles B. from Miami Beach, FL
Jim is very patient and works well with my son. My son lacks the basic study skills and with classes like Algebra and Physics this year, it has been a true blessing!
- Kelly O. from Woodstock, GA
Very patient and knowledgeable. He?s teaching me corporate finance; how to understand and create a P&L spreadsheets. He clearly loves to teach and I?m grateful! I know I?ll do well in grad school, thanks to him.

Jim gave me some hope toward the goal of graduating one day. The way him and I worked to reach the final product was a great experience and I feel a learned a great deal while accomplishing the assignment in a timely fashion.

Jim helped me with my assignment in 'Consumer behavior and social marketing.' The tutoring with him has been a very positive experience. Jim was very patient and with his help, my assignment god improved quite a lot. I would very much recommend Jim to other students.

It was my first time using this platform and Jim guided me through some fundamental stuff that I had to know about using this platform. I really appreciate his service, and I would love to work with him in the future!! THANK YOU JIM!
- Jun M. from Los Angeles, CA
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!
- Alyssa H. from San Bruno, CA
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.
- Aida I. from San Francisco, CA
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.
- Stewart G. from Short Hills, NJ
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.
- Andrew S. from San Francisco, CA
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.
- Dorothy M. from San Francisco, CA
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.
- Carol K. from Pacifica, CA
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.
- Julia J. from San Francisco, CA
Jim was very patient and thorough. Very good tutor. He explains theory and problem solving to his students and cares about the student understanding the material.
