James E. ...I love the subjects which I teach and the personal attention I can give my students as a tutor. Thanks for reading my profile.I have several years experience teaching algebra 2 at the high school level and have also had the pleasure of teaching the equivalent course at the college level. My experience is not only in the classroom but also as a tutor in the mathematics tutoring lab at CSULA.
