I excel at breaking down difficult concepts into intuitive components. Developing intuition is the key to succeeding in mathematics. Almost every concept in high school math is easy to understand when explained properly. When a student understands why a mathematical rule exists, they will almost never break that rule again. I seek to promote an understanding of the logic of mathematics and an appreciation for it's beauty and power.
My name is James Crowley, but I normally go by "Jim." I am currently a Junior at San Jose State University studying Applied and Computational Mathematics. I have been tutoring for about 2 .5 years with 3 different companies. I have worked for KidzToPros, Mathnasium, and the UCSD Education Corps. I mainly work with junior high and high school students, but I am available for grade school and college students, too.
I typically only tutor subjects that I have received an A or better in. This includes(but is not limited to) :
Geometry, Algebra 1 and 2, Precalculus, AP Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, Physics, Introductory Chemistry, and C++/Java programming, .
I have experience tutoring almost all of these subjects before, except for some of the upper division math courses.
I am available every day except for Monday, Wednesday, Friday Mornings, and Tuesday afternoons. Feel free to ask about the subjects that I am willing to help you with!
Please contact me if you wish to schedule lessons. Thanks!
