"Hello hello hello! I'm James-Erik (or James, Jim, Jimothy, etc.)! I recently graduated from BYU with a B.S. in Economics, minoring in Chemistry and Business. My lifelong goal has been to attend medical school, thus the chemistry--and various other science classes! Independent of my desire to attend medical school, I think I would have sought a liberal education because I love learning! Science and math do such a good job explaining how the physical world behaves. However, they fail to capture the beauty of humanity. Social sciences and the humanities bridge the gap. These fields tell humanity's story. Economics was my best fit because it is a heavily quantitative social science. We model humanity with math. I know that may not sound interesting to you, but I love it.

I have been tutoring since high school when, as a senior, I instituted a lunchtime math tutoring program. For the last four years, I have spent 15-20 hours a week as a teaching assistant for General College Chemistry 1 & 2 and Western Civilization 1 & 2. I have also been a private tutor in general chemistry, organic chemistry, MCAT prep, and algebra.

Everything is based on calculus. My experience in economics and chemistry means that I can discuss real applications of the concepts covered in calculus classes. Calculus works in my mind because I can break problems down into simpler terms and steps. I am more than happy to share my trade secrets!

I have tutored general college chemistry tutoring for four years and organic chemistry for one year. I understand the common pitfalls, and I can explain concepts in many different ways because I have been doing it for so long.

I scored a 517 on the MCAT (94th percentile 130/127/130/130) so I am a competent tutor. Although I am not a 100th percentile tutor, I have a proven track record of tutoring students to higher levels of success than my own. I understand the content and I understand test-taking strategies that will help you be successful.
