I have a lot of experience helping students through both teaching and tutoring students in the Southern Illinois Area. I have been a teacher at Southern Illinois University during my time as a graduate student. I have taught or TA'd a class each semester for the last seven years and have been an instructor of record twice. I have been the teaching assistant for Plant Breeding, Plant Genetics, and Field Plot Techniques (a statistics class dealing with designs). I have also been instructor of r...

James and I primarily looked at simple and multiple linear regressions. He's super knowledgeable and patient. He brings a calmness and lightness to a tutoring session, which is really helpful when you're anxious and nervous about learning biostats concepts. He's also really nimble with R Studio and knows his code well. He was able to troubleshoot on the spot, enabling us to get through a lot in an hour-and-a-half. Highly recommended.

He did a review over R programming which was insightful and helpful. I look forward to working with him sometime in the future and will like to recommend him to friends as well.

James is an R whiz. He responds quickly and knows what he's doing. Helped me with Biostatistics and I'm not easy to help. Very thankful I discovered Wyzant and I plan to work with James again.

James is patient and is able to breakdown the material so I?m able to understand the problems I?m being presented with. I would definitely recommend James to someone in need of a statics tutor!
- Brittany H. from Chandler Heights, AZ
We went over Chemistry basics and some microbiology. Very good in helping me to understand the periodic table and electron structure. We also covered the Lewis structure. Chemistry is a very intimidating subject to me and James explains the concepts in a way that I can understand.

James assisted my on an assignment for a course on R Programming. James was very patient and kind and laid out the assignment for me, provided useful articles, and laid out each function step by step. Highly recommend!

James reviewed Biostatistics in R. He had worked on the assignment prior to our session so he was informed of my assignment and fully prepared. He went over, step-by-step, each line item to help me understand what exactly it was doing, answered all of my questions, and made sure I was comfortable with the information. My only regret is not having him assist me earlier in the class as this would have helped me greatly. If needed again, I will be sure to request his assistance again. Thanks!

James made the content understandable by relating the concepts in plain English. I feel more confident in the material because it was made clear to me in a way that I understood. Thank you James! I will definitely be using him for any additional needs in math and stats!

Just started this week with 3 of our boys and seems to be going great! Kids are motivated to learn and despite their disabilities seem to be keeping up=) Thank you James!

The review title says it all. He didn't waste any time, got right to the point and articulated the material with a clear delivery.

I have used many tutors on Wyzant but James was fantastic. I had sent him an R programming assignment that I was struggling with and when it came time for the lesson, it was obvious that he had spent a considerable amount of time reviewing it. Because of this, he was able to quickly identify what I did wrong, and help me understand better. I definintely plan on using James again in the future!

This was my first time using wyzant. James made it easy and was very patient with me. He helped me with my assignment and made everything crystal clear. A+++ experience!
