Very reliable and dynamic w/ skills on how to relate to his student. I would highly recommend him!
James is a fantastic tutor and made a huge difference in my son's progress and confidence in college-level calculus. My son had gotten behind, and was a couple weeks away from an important test. It is extremely difficult to find tutors that can handle college-level math courses. James was thorough, organized, helpful, set-up in-between time chat sessions for questions. My son did great on his test and has a renewed confidence in his ability to master this class on top of the rest of his class load and part-time job.
I worked with another tutor and he was teaching what the instructor was teachin and I wasn't getting. James broke it down to where I was able to understand calculus and pass the coarse! Thanks a million James. I highly recommend James to get your math straightened out!
James is an exceptional tutor. My son struggled to understand Calculus 1 and had to drop it in the fall. We had James help him in the spring and he did great. James is excellent at explaining the concepts in a way my son understood. Not only did he teach him Calculus, but he also taught him the work ethic needed to complete difficult courses. He assigned extra work and reviewed it with him. He checked in on him to make sure he understood where he was in the course and what his weaknesses were. My son said that he really enjoyed working with him because he knew how to explain the material and made it interesting. All in all a great teacher!!!!!!!!!
James R. ("Monroe") Ranceful is an EXCELLENT tutor for my 10th grade son in PreCalculus. He is not only exceptionally bright, but has a way of explaining things in terms in which my son can grasp. Although my son is an excellent student, he was having trouble understanding some of the material the teacher at school was presenting. Monroe was able to to break down the material in a way in which my son could understand. This understanding is key in math classes where one concept builds on another, leaving my son more confident to progress to higher levels of Math with confidence. In addition to Monroe's excellent tutoring skills, he is always extremely prompt, personable, reasonably prices, and often reviews his homework or study guide reviews with him and also sends my son extra questions to make sure he grasps specific concepts. He never leaves until he is sure my son understands the material. He is extremely flexible with his hours and his rates are very reasonable and he only requires payment after a session, not in advance like some tutors. We feel like we have found a true "gem" in Monroe and my son has more than succeeded in this college-level course (dual enrollment) with a high A consistently due to Monroe's guidance. You can tell that Monroe genuinely CARES about his pupils and LOVES teaching them the subject matter. We very highly recommend him!
