Introduction: I am a Master's student at Imperial College for Health Data Analytics and Machine Learning. I recently graduated in biomedical engineering at Mizzou. I often found that receiving help from someone in my age group made learning easier than a professor due to different perspectives of the content. I try to reciprocate my experiences to you through my service. I have taken both the ACT and SAT multiple times, receiving a 34 and 1550 as my highest on each (99 percentile), respectively. I also received 800's on my Math 2, Chemistry, and Physics SAT 2 exams and 5's on AP Physics 1/2, Chemistry, and Calculus BC. Through Thumbtack, I've tutored ACT, SAT, AP Physics, math, and college physics but I am also a writing tutor at Mizzou's Writing Center and volunteer tutor for high school students. I have experience in tutoring writing, chemistry, and biology. I have also gotten a 520 on the MCAT (98 percentile) and am also available for tutoring on that exam.

He’s very good at tutoring! I remember struggling with my biology class last semester so I fail and took it this semester I started working with James we worked together until I got a hang of it I learned so much working with him. I will also be working with him next semester for my anatomy to biology class that I will be taking in the summer. Thank you so much James.

We have found James to be a very clear, confident tutor who challenges my son on his AP Physics. He has always been punctual and they maximize the tutor time together.

I needed tutoring for statistics class and James did a good job in making sure I understood formulas and the why behind every step. I 100% recommend him!

James is tutoring both of my children (16yrs, 12yrs) in math. I have two very different learners and he has been able to work really well with both of them. He is patient, creative, and generous! We would hire him again and again. Thanks, James!!

James has been an excellent tutor for my 6th grader. He is kind, patient, and has a way to help make things finally “click.” Thank you, James!!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I get to know the student and ask about college goals. I want our relationship to be informal yet intentional, since that allows for better engagement.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started tutoring with Ferguson Youth Tutors in my sophomore year because it sounded fun. It truly turned out to be an enjoyable experience due to the students' visible progress and I've continued doing so in my free time throughout high school.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've worked with several students from elementary school up to college. My strength is with middle school to college students. Occasionally, I taught adults working towards the G.E.D.'s.
