Introduction
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've helped countless students raise their grades in STEM courses from D's to B's or even A's by meeting once to three times a week, as well as helping students improve their ACT/SAT scores to meet their goals. My students are very pleased with their results. Through Thumbtack, I've tutored ACT, SAT, MCAT, AP, IB, A-levels, physics, chemistry, biology, math, programming (R/Python) at high school and collegiate level but I was also a writing tutor at Mizzou's Writing Center and volunteer tutor for high school students.

We hired James to tutor my son in order to increase his score on the ACT. We knew we had to focus on math and science and James did an excellent job. My son did increase his score by four points. My son really enjoyed working with James and felt like it was a valuable experience. James with very easy to work with and I have recommended him to others.

James was able to help my daughter understand concepts she was struggling with in HS Chemistry, wish we’d reached out sooner!

James has regularly been tutoring my high school sophomore in Algebra 2 and Chemistry. My son enjoys meeting with him and is so much more confident. It’s showing not only in his grades, but in how he studies and his increased interest level in both subjects. James knows his stuff, he’s responsive and he genuinely cares. My son will have big writing assignments/projects for English and History in lieu of final exams and I love that James can also help with that when the time comes.
