Jim is a licensed History/Social Studies teacher with a passion for math and technology. As the oldest brother of three, you could say Jim has been tutoring since he was young. His style is one of patience and empathy. Jim feels it is not only important to help students reach a particular goal, like nailing the SSAT, but also help them build self-confidence along the way. Jim’s favorite reaction is when students return and say, “Not only did that help on the test, but it helped so much in class too!” In addition to tutoring, Jim is an active community volunteer coaching baseball and teaching English to non-native speakers. As the son of a Cuban immigrant, Jim understands the hard work that goes into making a new life helps others make that transition in his community.
When not tutoring, Jim is working on his Master’s degree in Military History. He reads a lot, and will talk your ear off if you want to talk about history or astronomy. Jim’s areas of specialty are the history of NASA, both World Wars and the Cold War. In another life, Jim might have been manning a submarine, or maybe working at NASA as a Computer, a la the movie Hidden Figures.
Jim tutors most common standardized tests, like the SSAT, ISEE, HSPT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT. In addition, Jim uses his work and educational experience to tutor subjects like History, Politics/ Government, Geography, Economics, and Financial Accounting. Jim believes in life-long learning and approaches teaching and tutoring as an opportunity to help people, young and old, reach their goals. As such, Jim works with students of all ages.
