Its taken a while for my 3yr old son to adjust to a new way of learning via a virtual setup. James has been extremely patient and thorough in making sure hes comfortable, and able to grasp the lesson at hand.

James tutored our 2nd grader in math for 15 lessons in the Spring/Summer of 2nd grade, and covered many topics from addition and subtraction, through data collection and multiplication. Long story short, James is great and we highly recommend him for tutoring! In particular, James is attentive to the individual child, and what is very interesting is that part of James' teaching approach is to pull back from the lesson and talk about bigger issues. For instance if while your kid is having their lesson, they aren't paying attention, then James might discuss what is distracting them, and set a goal related to paying attention to the rest of the lesson. I don't give his method justice with this description. He's not someone who powers through lessons no matter what. He tries to teach your kid introspection and executive function while they go about learning the topic. Great!!!

We just met with James today for the first time. James was able to make a knowledgeable observation and point on essential recommendations to help improve my son's (7 years old with autism) interaction and learning skills while moderately reducing anxiety behavior.

I just had 1 lesson so far. He made me comfortable and relaxed, he's receptive and understanding. He's a good tutor with patience and willingness to help.

James is a very thorough and thoughtful tutor. He gives great consideration to the student's situation and does whatever it takes to help the student.

Teaching the editing process is beneficial and I hope that my son is able to use these tools once he is feeling capable of working on his own.
