Reviews
Mr. James is an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable about math/ algebra. He is very patient with my son. He explains very well. He helped my son with his math last year while my son was in high school. Recently I asked Mr. James to help my son with algebra lessons for the college now. Mr.James can explain math very well so my son understands it.

My son had his first tutoring session with Mr. James today. He immediately put my son at ease. After having a not so good tutoring session the day before with another Wyzant tutor, my son was really not looking forward to another tutoring session. After the tutoring session with Mr. James, my son mentioned how much he learned, how much he enjoyed Mr. James? tutoring style and he?s looking forward to future tutoring sessions with Mr. James. Thank you, Mr. James...you?re a Godsend!

James helped my daughter figure out many math SAT problems. She felt confident that she did much better on the exam than she would have had she not been tutored by James. She said he was patient and friendly.

I love working with James because he definitely knows his stuff and will send additional resources to help you learn. He also goes the extra mile to make sure you understand.

James explained clearly and patiently the concepts to my son. He was a different person when I spoke to him after his tutoring session. He was more confident in understanding the material. I appreciate the thoroughness and flexibility James had in covering each topic. He is an excellent tutor. He went above and beyond to ensure my son understood the concepts to complete his assignment. He is professional. I highly recommend James. My son and I are impressed with him.

James was punctual, friendly, but respected the fact that since it?s 4 days until the end of the semester. He got straight to the problems uploaded. He showed the long version, step by step, but offered short cuts. I love that he ?thinks-out-loud.? That allowed me to understand which formula to choose and why. He also explained how to use the calculator to get answers. I felt extremely comfortable asking him questions. After three tutors on Wyzant's platform in three days, I prefer his style. He accomplished much more than the tutors who are cheaper. Maybe they wanted to drag it out to get more money? Who knows? I will be using him again tonight.

I searched for months looking for someone to help my daughter with Math and she became very discouraged. I read about Mr. James B. My daughter had her first tutoring session with Mr. James B. via Wyzant and she was amazed & talked about how thorough he was, how he explains & make math become crystal clear, he is a motivator/encourager & she is looking forward to having another tutoring session with him. As a parent, I feel this is a very good investment. Thank you, Mr. B.

James helped me with my alg 2 at gave me several useful resources like websites and PDFs to use. He also managed to keep me entertained and not feel like it was a lecture the whole time.

I had trouble passing the math portion of the praxis core exam for over a year. I always struggled with math in high school and barely got by in college math classes, but when it came time to enter the education program I was stuck due to this portion of the exam. I had two sessions with James and we covered all of my problem areas in those two sessions. James also provided very helpful study materials which definitely played a role in my success. James explained topics very well and was a big confidence booster. In the end I brought my score up from a 136 to a 182! After 4 attempts and several hundreds of dollars I was able to complete this exam (I should have gotten a tutor the first time.) If you are willing to put in the work James provides many materials and help in his sessions. I passed this exam myself, but in the end I needed help and he provided it. Great Job. Highly recommended.

James squeezed my son in for a tutoring session to help him prepare for a geometry test the following day. My son got an A on the test!!! Thank you, James!!! You really helped him.

Mr. B. is reliable and takes time to break things down in detail. He was patient when I had questions and explains the work in a way that was easy for me to remember.

James helped me reach my goals of passing the Praxis math exam. With a combination of knowledge of content area and humour, James made our sessions of learning math enjoyable. He made our sessions comfortable because of his personality and helped me understand the content that I was struggling with prior to my sessions with him.
- Kelsey S. from Sparks, NV
James is very helpful and patient. He helped me understand calculus problems and concepts a lot more. He also gave me a lot of good resources to help me improve.

James was an amazing tutor. My daughter has had a very hard time passing the praxis middle school math test (5169). Well, tonight she passed. James she could not have done it without you. Thank you so much for your hard work. If your child is struggling in math...James is your man. Mr. B, we are for ever grateful.

Mr. James knows his math. Definitely would recommend. I am now more confident about taking my test and would utilize his services again.
- Dwight W. from Washington, DC
James was a great tutor with a fantastic demeanor and rapport. Highly recommend him! He made learning fun and easy and really helped to increase understanding of the geometry lesson.
- Shawn M. from Easton, MD
My son continues to be impressed and learn from James tutoring sessions. James continues to provide a number tips and techniques in Calculus. I see that increased confidence in my son?s work performance. Thanks James!.
- Donte L. from Laurel, MD
Mr. James knows his stuff and he has creative ways to engage the students even when the student may not know how to solve a particular problem. My son has opened up more during the tutoring sessions and really likes the online sessions. He seems to be applying himself more in class since starting tutoring with Mr. James.

Mr. James has been working with our son in the area of Trigonometry. We have been working with Mr. James for almost 2 school years. His detailed, descriptive summaries keep us informed on what is covered in each session. He has never hesitated to put our minds at ease with his consistent communication and has made sure to answer any of our concerns regarding our son's progress. Mr. James has always been honest with us in regards to our son's efforts, even when those efforts have been less than expected. Our son is a smart and capable young man who has not been working to his full potential, until now. Mr. James has a way of making him realize that he has the ability to be great at whatever he does. Our son received an 80% in his math class this quarter and I know it was because of all the hard work, patience, and encouragement that was given by Mr. James. I am truly thankful to have found Mr. James, his professionalism, knowledge of mathematics and teaching methods are outstanding!
