This allowed him to add GMAT to his teaching repertoire, which already included various sports and chess in addition to experience tutoring all levels of mathematics. Along with a B.A. in Mathematics from Claremont McKenna College and a teaching credential, James has a Master of Divinity from Covenant Seminary where he learned to closely read Greek and Hebrew and found that training remarkably helpful on Sentence Correction!
