James was great at communicating and setting up a mutually agreeable time. He had a good understanding of the subject matter and with more time could be really helpful to my son - perhaps formulating more relevant problems

We reviewed a recent test and discussed a variety of topics including why GDP measures final goods and services (to avoid double counting), the difference between gross and net investment (depreciation), how price floors can create surpluses, price ceilings can create shortages, while neither exist at equilibria.

I reached out to James about a week and a half before my Micro Econ Final, We planned to meet 5 consecutive days and James did an amazing job in helping me get up to speed for my course. He came prepared after having gone over the review material with explanations and solutions ready along with easy to follow explanations. Really saved me this semester!

I spent dozens of hours studying for the GMAT both through a Manhattan Prep course and on my own. But despite all of the effort and time that I put in, I couldn't seem to crack the quant portion of the test. I reached out to James for help within two weeks of taking the GMAT, and I'm so glad that I did. He was very accommodating with my schedule, and was consistently kind and helpful as well. He helped me understand complex quant problems that previously gave me a lot of trouble and was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend James to anyone looking to improve his or her math skills!
- Kate H. from Boston, MA
James has ability to deliver clear information and directions. Even confusing complicated problems make sense after time spent tutoring with James. I Saved time on DS and PS topics of GMAT
- Maya B. from Roslindale, MA
James was very understanding of my need to push my tutoring session back by a few minutes. He is easy to communicate and coordinate with. I have only had one session but he was extremely positive and gave me good study habits to think about. I look forward to our next sessions. He is also very encouraging!
- RAUSHANAH L B. from Cambridge, MA
James knows the subject matter for econ and stats very well and helped break down each topic into something a lot more easier to understand. He's also really friendly and shows up on time every time! Highly recommended!!
- Kevin A. from Boston, MA
I learned a semester worth of microeconomics theory within 4 hours. James answered all my questions and helped me do all the math questions thoroughly.
- Mariajose T. from Boston, MA
Jim is truly a very gifted teacher with the ability to make learning fun and interesting. Our 18 yr old son looked forward to every session he had with Jim and he always came out with a smile on his face and would say "Jim is so awesome!" It was almost like a therapy session because he enjoyed it so much. It didn't matter what they worked on together, Jim is just so knowledgeable and spontaneous that he could talk about anything without preparation. We highly recommend Jim - he really has a special gift that enables him to connect with a student in a remarkable way.

James helped me prepare for the quantitative portion of the GMAT exam and was a very helpful, patient, and knowledgeable tutor. He was very familiar with the GMAT exam and had lots of tips about the actual test which I found very helpful. Each lesson was totally customized to what subject matter I needed to focus on and my learning style. My quant. score improved a lot from the first time I took the GMAT with James's help. I would definitely recommend James as a tutor!
- Meaghan C. from Boston, MA
James did an exceptional job in helping me understand various concepts ranging from precalculus and economics. He is a very knowledgeable tutor, who always tries to help me understand every concept fully and thoroughly. I could not ask for a more helpful, and enjoyable tutor!

Jim has been extremely helped with preparing me for the GMAT. He teaches the material in a very effective way.
- Christian N. from Boston, MA
Covered probability & rate/work problems--we covered additional problems beyond my GMAT textbook problems, which were helpful to me. Jim was able to break things down and offer additional explanation.
