About Jim W.

Experienced, Highly Qualified Math Tutor and Music Teacher Available!

My Wednesday availability is for the area around Maryvale and south Glendale. I could add some time on Sunday if necessary. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday would be for areas more to
the East.

Math got you down? It can be easier than you think! My knowledge of math has greatly increased my income. It can increase your income, too! Don't get stuck earning minimum wage. I am an experienced teacher and have been tutoring people since 1975. I passed the state AEPA Area 10 test and am highly qualified to teach secondary mathematics. I even help students who are home-schooled! I am also an experienced student with seven college degrees, including a B.A.! I used my Data Processing degree to write some math drill computer programs to help students with basic math skills. Students can access them on my laptop computer! I have worked as a chess coach and have a little time available around my current work schedule.

Personal information:

The reason why I called Jim was to help me with my classical guitar pieces for my ASU audition. I had very little experience in this side and of music and looking for a teacher was important. I hired Jim for an hour every Sunday the past month of January. The way he approached the music pieces and the knowledge he had was very impressive. Jim is also very patient and lets you have control over the lesson and start or suggest were to begin the lecture. I was able to lean a piece and know how to approach classical guitar thanks to Jim. There were somethings that I din't like about some of the lessons, There were times that when Jim was lecturing, he would get side tracked and forget about the topic and not even look at the music for a great majority of the hour, it was defiantly frustrating. Nonetheless, Jim is a great teacher, always appreciated when he stayed over the hour to further discus the piece. For these reasons I have decided to give Jim a four out of five rating.
