I am an inquisitive student of the seemingly disparate disciplines of mathematics and music. I am currently a Pure Mathematics PhD student at the CUNY Graduate Center in Manhattan. I also have my BM from the Crane Institute for Music Business in Music Business with a specialization in double bass and my MA in Pure Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam.

I most enjoy the process of developing a student's understanding from the foundations. All too often, teachers of math are not familiar with the fou...

James has turned out to be exceptionally well-suited to the temperament and learning style of our student. He is diligent, quick, patient, and encouraging. Our student comes away from each session feeling confident and sure-footed, especially as James helps her fill in some of the conceptual gaps in her past studies of mathematics.

James helped me break down difficult calculus concept and helped me understand how to apply them, I look forward to meeting more with James to better understand the subject at hand.

James is an excellent math tutor. He knows the material and can convey it well. Our son and James are getting along well and they have made tremendous progress towards our son placing out of Advanced Geometry this fall. Thanks a bunch for your terrific help, James.

James tutored me in College Algebra, answered my questions, and helped me get past some points I was stuck on. I feel so much more comfortable heading into my final exam.

James is an amazing tutor! He was very patient and always had different way explaining the same problem. Sometimes I was getting frustrated with myself and he always reassured me that it's okay. I had a test on the day he tutored me and it's because of him I was able to get through the test confidently. Thank you James for all of your help. It's great to find a supportive tutor!!

As I asked a dozen questions for every step, James displayed no signs of impatience. He knew every topic like the back of his hand. In addition, he gave me an encouraging background story of how he became good at math. If anyone considers using James, two thumbs up if you've just read this.

James was amazing! Will def recommend and go back! We went through many elements of excel including some complex solutions and formulas. I feel much more comfortable in my use of excel across the board.

James is a superb tutor he breaks everything down for you. By providing you with examples, that make logical and comprehensive sense.
- Keith G. from Medford, NY
I was struggling with calculus since the start of my semester. Today was my first lesson with James and it was really helpful. In just a few hours he was able to simplify what seemed complex to me. I recommend him to anyone struggling with math. He was very patient and friendly. He was very knowledgeable of the material. Thank you so much James. You really helped me today.

James is a wonderful tutor. I am enrolled in an online calculus class and James has been very helpful. We meet every week for hours and he goes over all the material, explaining each concept and breaking it down into simpler terms. He's always accommodating with meetings and makes himself available for as long as you need. Since its an online class, James is not only just my tutor but also like a professor teaching me each lesson. He's very intelligent and also patient when I do not understand a rule or concept. I am very glad I found James and I plan on meeting with many more times for tutoring sessions. I recommend him for anyone taking a difficult math class. He's the best!

Great! I was able to understand everything he went over with me. He takes his time and is very patient. He's also really cool and down to earth which made the lesson enjoyable!
- Roy A. from Shoreham, NY
James is a great tutor because he explains the material in a very unique way, which makes it easier for me to understand. He is really patient which helps out a lot because it allows me to work at my own pace for me to really understand what is going on. He is very knowledgable of the material. By having James as my tutor, I now understand everything in a clearer way. My knowledge of calculus is increasing in every lesson. Thank you James!
- Dave S. from Bronx, NY
James is very knowledgable in math. He was very helpful in learning what I needed to know and breaking down complex topics into things I could understand. Available on short notice as well.
