After spending about 25 years in the financial business, I've been teaching and tutoring math for 10 years and my students have found that I'm very patient, good at explaining math concepts, and successful in increasing their confidence when dealing with math problems. Rather than just have students memorize rules or procedures, I help students derive ways to remember and understand concepts. I also help students improve their study habits and test-taking strategies.

About Jim W.

I changed careers from being in the investment industry to teaching and tutoring math because I believe that for many people achieving happiness and success in today's world requires strong math skills. I have always had fun with math and I am saddened when I hear people say, "I'm not good at math". I believe that most people are much better at math than they think they are. They just need a patient, passionate, caring, and creative person like me who can help them overcome their fears, realize how much they already know, and discover the joy and usefulness of math.

Using skills that I have developed while teaching, tutoring, and working in the financial industry, I can help you improve your understanding of important math concepts. Instead of just memorizing formulas and equations, I will help you make connections to your prior knowledge and to real-world applications. By customizing all of my lessons, I will be able to build on your strengths, focus on the areas that will help you the most, and boost your self-confidence. As I help you increase your self-confidence, I think that you also will find that knowledge of math can be fun, powerful, and insightful.

In addition to improving your math and economics knowledge, I can help you achieve better results on homework, exams, and standardized tests by helping you with studying, time-management and test-taking techniques.
