Introduction: I am a recent Master's graduate from Imperial College for Health Data Analytics and Machine Learning. In 2021, I 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 was 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.

James is a life saver. I have struggled with chemistry all semester and I am so thankful I found him here. James breaks down material and makes chemistry so much easier to understand. I wish I would have known about his tutoring services at the beginning of the semester! I can’t recommend him enough. If you’re struggling or need this subject broken down, HE IS YOUR GUY!

James is brilliant. He always has the answer and knows how to assist in solidifying concepts. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to have him tutor me in college physics. He was even able to fit me in his schedule three times in one week! Don’t pass up the opportunity to have James tutor you in whatever it is you’re looking for.

James helped my son in one session! He’s taking honors Chem 10th grade, and he was having a hard time with dimensional analysis and mole calculations. (I have no idea what that is!) After the hour with James, my son said it was like a blindfold was lifted from him! He caught on, and the concepts became clear. He has a recurring tutoring schedule with James, and his grade has been moving up! Yay!!! James is awesome!

FAQs

  • 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.
