Throughout my career, I have achieved many interesting and diverse things: I have worked on cutting edge NASA imaging systems, innovated new combustion engine technologies for Cummins, played saxophone on two Grammy-nominated albums, coded video games and artificial intelligence algorithms, and co-wrote several screenplays, three of which were optioned by Hollywood production companies. However, despite my successes, my greatest joy still comes from sharing my knowledge and igniting a passion...

My first session with James on Solid Mechanics topics preparing for final. Really helpful. Explanations and teaching style more effective than my profs and TA?s. Will make a difference on my exam. Many thanks!!

We were so lucky to have James as a tutor. My son was contemplating dropping the class but decided to try tutoring first. Shockingly,my son ended up with an A in the class. James was extremely patient, explained the material well and his follow up with the lesson was impeccable. Thank you James

James does a great job working with my 15-year old son with Algebra 2 and chemistry. He was also great working with my daughter last year on her SAT math prep. really helped to increase her math score.
- Patricia D. from Buda, TX
James is able to take complicated material and make it relatable to a life experience that can be understood. James is also able to identify any gaps in understanding of the material.
- Gretchen S. from Austin, TX
Excellent tutor. I highly recommend him. He takes the time to go over each problem patiently. I highly recommend him. He goes up and over for a student. Again I would highly recommend him.

James worked with my son, a junior in high school, on Physics. He helped my son enormously in terms of understanding the concepts and in helping my son solve homework problems. My son's grade improved significantly but, even more importantly, his level of confidence in his work increased dramatically. James is fantastic with teenagers and had a manner about him that both my son and I found very engaging. We could not recommend him more highly.

James was my tutor for solids 2. James was a very knowledgable tutoring who was able to teach me everything I needed to knowfor solids 2. When specific areas came up that are not normally taught in solids 2. James researched these areas and was able to teach me what I needed to know.

James has been very helpful to my son who was behind in calculus and anylitical geometry. He was able to catch him up and give him a greater understanding of the material. We will continue to seek his assistance and wish we found him sooner.
- Eileen B. from Rumson, NJ
We have been extremely fortunate to have James as a tutor for four of our kids. He has made the difference in high school Physics and PreCalc. He has proven to be both a subject matter expert and a patient teacher. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
- Ed M. from Austin, TX
James helped my daughter with her AP Physics work prior to a test. He quickly assessed what she needed, gave a short conceptual lesson to clarify the important concepts, and then he dove into the material, helping her solve problems. She ended the session feeling much more confident of her own knowledge. And, she did well on the test. He is very good and we will use him again.

My son had a lesson with James on Skype and he couldn't have been happier with the results. James is a wonderful tutor and we will definitely use his services again.
- Denyse D. from Austin, TX
We worked on things directly related to prepping for my upcoming quiz. I definitely felt that James was very helpful. I walked away much more confident in my ability to work the problems and feel like I will be successful on my quiz.
- Amber M. from Austin, TX
We found James 3 days before the first Physics exam, and in 2 hours James was able to clearly explain and provide solid examples for the first 3 chapters of Freshman High School Physics, especially how to recognize and apply Newton's Laws 1, 2, & 3. We look forward to getting onto James' regular weekly tutoring schedule, so that we can learn Physics in an ongoing basis.
- Sylvia A. from San Jose, CA
I was beyond stressed with Calculus II and writhing just one hour James was able to help me really understand Calculus better and was able to answer all of my questions. I will definitely be going back for more sessions in the future.
- Pablo V. from Katy, TX
We are so happy James responded to our needs. He is tutoring my daughter in both Pre Calc and Physics. He does a great job and explains it for her so that she understands it, which was not happening at school. After the first session my daugher said "Keep him! He explains it so well and doesn't make me feel like I'm stupid for having problems with these classes." High praise from a teen! If my son ends up needing help with Algebra I know who to ask for.
- Pamela O. from Austin, TX
We just had our first lesson and they hit it off well. We plan to get on a regular schedule with James.
- Tracy W. from Austin, TX
James knows what he's doing and has good analogies that are relatable. I'm spending some money but not nearly what it would cost in time and money to retake a class. He's well prepared, patient, and keeps our schedule. I'm thankful and pleased.
- Andrew S. from Orlando, FL
At the last minute we needed Calculus 2 help. The night before a test. James already had a session but agreed to meet my son after (at 10pm!). Thank you!!!
- Christine S. from Dallas, TX
Awesome tutor. He knows the material, very laid back and down to earth. you will benefit a lot from his lessons. Encourage you to take him. He conducts online lessons on skype which I do like a lot. Lecture can be recorded as well. :)
- Suhaib G. from Austin, TX
James is an amazing tutor. He has been absolutely wonderful for a young man who did not want to be tutored.
