As a molecular geneticist working in pharmaceutical discovery, I spent my career understanding and applying math, chemistry and biology in a real world context. Through WyzAnt, I now share this experience with many successful students who benefit from my practical and pupil-specific explanations of how things work and how they make sense to anyone if presented in a manner that makes sense to a particular individual.

James always seemed to know how to teach the material, was friendly, and I never had an issue with him not showing up or being late. I would recommend him to anyone taking a MATH 1314 course at Lone Star as that is what we covered. Thanks!

James has been my tutor for over 6 months now. He has been extremely helpful and dependable. He is kind, patient, and a really good teacher. He is great at explaining and takes his time when doing so. On top of it, he has a really cool Scottish accent!
- Natalie H. from Conroe, TX
Highly recommended! James is extremely patient, kind, and very encouraging. My son has a much better understanding of Pre-Calculus thanks to James...and his confidence level has improved tremendously. Can?t thank him enough!

Maira has really enjoyed the lesson and has picked up very well. She has informed me that she is ready for her final exams and is confident that she will pass it with flying colors. Mr. James is a pleasure to interact with very nice and clam person.

James really cares about ensuring his students understand their stuff so that they can start working on their own quickly. We had several other tutors before, but James clearly surpasses all of them. Our son finally started to engage and become interested in Math and study in general ! What a difference !

My daughter is working with James for her Pre-ap math class because she struggles on some subjects and he is great. He takes his time and shows her how to think about the problem and break it down without getting frustrated, work it out and use easier methods. He is super patient and answers all her questions. She loves working with him.

My daughter had struggled with understanding her College Algebra class, but James has not only been helpful in teaching her but also giving her the confidence she needs to move forward. I highly recommend him!
- Stacey Z. from Spring, TX
This was our first lesson with Jim. He was punctual and earnest. My son felt he explained the concepts well and gained greater insight than what he was getting in the class. We plan to continue with Jim.
- Giridhar V. from Spring, TX
Great at teaching complex equations in a very simple way, can break down the problems to help easy understanding. Patient and strives for the students best. Stay until you absolutely understand everything, does not mind staying late.
- Michael W. from Spring, TX
James obviously masters his subject but he is also an outstanding pedagogue. He took time after the lesson to give us an honest feedback and precious recommendations to suit our child's learning style and challenges. I will recommend him without hesitation.
- Isabelle B. from Spring, TX
Its obvious that James P. loves what he does. Within 10 minutes, he had my daughter's full attention and a frequent chorus of "ooohhhh" - for the whole hour. She gets it! Two lessons in and she's realized she's ~not~ math dumb. We feel very fortunate to have connected with the right-for-my-kid tutor on our first try!
- Dundi T. from Spring, TX
James is very patient and kind to my son. He is taking his time to get to know exactly what my son needs and how he should approach him. James is very intuitive and picked up on my son's personality immediately. He is very thorough and just wants to make sure that he is helping my son to the best of his ability. James encourages questions and dialogue and doesn't just sit there talking and explaining something that my son is clueless about. My son just took his 1st test since being tutored by James and he was very confident and did not feel stressed out like he has been on previous math test days! James also took time out to speak with me and let me know how he thought my son felt about math and what we could do to help him to become more confident regarding the subject. I would highly recommend James as a math tutor and we look forward to him working with our son in the future.
- Phoebe A. from Conroe, TX
James demonstrated what a knowledgeable and patient tutor he is. My son completely enjoyed his lesson. During this one hr session, Jim had all possible approaches to make his class interesting, and easy to understand, by explanation, drawing, video... associated very abstract concepts with daily life substances. Not only my boy likes his class, I also enjoyed!
- Sally F. from Spring, TX
I would like to thank James for helping out my son with precalculus. After the lesson I could see my son being confident enough in solving problems without any difficulty and ready for his test. We are looking forward to have more lessons with James.
- Sonali S. from Spring, TX
Jim has not only helped my daughter with her math work, but has been very encouraging and in turn has increased her self confidence.
- Cindy S. from Spring, TX
My son became more confident in his areas of weakness and has a better understanding of the importance of showing his work. He was very patient in his teaching.
- Austin P. from Spring, TX
James is a great tutor not only by being an excellent teacher but also a very good listener and advisor
- Ulash C. from Spring, TX
My daughter has been studying precalculus with James. He is able to explain the subject in a way she easily understands. He's very good at what he does. He is a very nice man which puts my daughter at ease. Both my daughter and I really like him and we are very comfortable having him in our home.
- Kathy J. from Spring, TX
James P. has been such a great help to me in my Algebra tutoring! Going back to college after 15 years and trying to build on my Algebra skills to prepare for Trigonometry has been intimidating. In just 3 tutoring sessions, James has had tremendous patience with me and has thoroughly explained the concepts to me so that I feel as if I've always known them -- it really does come back to you, as he said it would! James knew just where to start in building my fundamental algebra skills. He has a way of explaining things that make them click! James truly has a thorough understanding of mathematics and is a great tutor! Highly recommended!
- Abigail S. from Katy, TX
James, or "Mr P" as we address him, genuinely cares about actually teaching and conveying actual understanding of the subject at hand. He possesses thorough knowledge across a wide spectrum of 'maths'. He's helped my son achieve competency in calculus and my stepdaughter has more confidence in her ability to grasp the various nuances and specifics of chemistry. As a parent, I appreciate that he's also quite insightful about teenagers as students.
