I love to tutor and have Master's in Physics and Philosophy. I am very good at figuring out what it is that's hanging a student up and coming up with an approach to the material that allows the student to understand and master it. My motto is "If the student fails to learn, then I have failed to teach!" And I don't like to fail....
James helped me with my PHP project that I was struggling with. My project consisted of HTML, CSS, MySQL, and PHP. James was able to help me tremendously that I was able to turn in my assignment on time. He is a patient tutor that is knowledgeable and eager to help you understand your struggling material. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.

I used James as a tutor for an introductory sys-admin course. I was supposed to write several scripts to manage my local machine and host. James' quality of service is exceptional. I hired him to spot me while I polished my code and verbalized my issues. He was very helpful without overriding the process. His practical knowledge of script languages and the line editor Emacs proved indispensable. James, thank you so much for your time and efforts. Regards, Chris

James and I had more of a Q&A type meeting and he was able to instill a new confidence in my PHP coding. He answered all my questions and even pointed me to online martial that will help me outside of his lessons. Very happy with everything. Thank you.

I reached out to James for help with my Into to Linux homework. He not only knew all the answers but showed me a few extra tricks. We worked the homework together and explained each of the answers. I will definitely be contacting him in the future as I have 2 additional Linux classes after this one. THANKS!

Before I had my first lesson with James, I knew he was going to be great. He is open, responsive is genuinely interested in teaching and helping. James talked to me in a way that made our lesson much less stressful than other tutors I have had in the past. I will be checking in with before I search for any other tutor in the web development space (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP and others)

I needed feedback on an academic paper I'm working on that deals with physics and philosophy, and he was very helpful. The session over video-chat went smoothly.

James helped me understand a more efficient process of de-bugging code--one that lead me to find my errors more apparently and with his guidance. He helped me with a specific PHP assignment where instead of simply hand-feeding me the answers, prompted me to look deeper at potential problems in the code and discern what may be missing. This kind of instruction was helpful because I could more easily apply what I learned from working with him to my other coding related material. James has a calm and positive demeanor which I feel is essential to the kind of work he does with complex coding languages. He helped me feel capable and at ease while working in terminology and methodologies that would assist me beyond the scope of my assignment. It was certainly a pleasure to work and learn from such an understanding and knowledgeable professional with a heart for instruction.

He helped me work through a really long problem and taught me the fundamentals along the way. Really enjoyed the way he broke down the problem and made it simple to understand.
- Conner A. from Elk Grove, CA
He was a very helpful and patient tutor. He went through the codes line by line and explained to me clearly. The session with him was very productive. If I have questions, I would contact him again.
- Young J. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
James is a very patient tutor. Although we have worked on very few problems due to time and explanation of each problem, it was very productive.
- HAMID D. from Pocatello, ID
James was extremely helpful. I contacted him last minute to help me prepare for my physics final, which I was very nervous for and he made himself very available to me. I emailed him about one week before the date of my final and we met three times each for two hours in that week. I really thought I was going to fail my final, but I ended up doing well. I attribute that all to James. I would highly recommend working with James for help with your physics class!

What can I say about James? What an amazing tutor this guy is! Not only is he a great tutor, but he's also a great friend with a huge heart and a great since of humor. James really pays attention to what you need to work at and he will help you target that specific area. Overall what an an amazing tutor James is, and I highly recommend him.

James helped my son with a higher level electrical engineering course. We had gone through two other tutors who were not able to help my son. He may charge more than others, but we found it was well worth it.
