Information about James

I am a friendly, approachable Cambridge graduate originally from Northumberland. I have always loved education, and enjoy helping others not only to understand a topic, but to delight in it. I enjoy meeting new people, and finding the interesting side of anything. I offer tutoring in English up to undergraduate degree level, and in Latin up to A-level.

Availability: I am most available for tutoring work on weekday evenings and all-day Saturday and Sunday. There will be some daytime weekday availability, but it varies week to week, so simply ask.

In these uncertain times we`ve all changed the way we work. Whether you prefer online or in-person tutoring, I can fit in with you — just let me know.

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: During my own academic career, I moved from all A*s at GCSE and A-Level to an undergraduate degree in English at the University of Cambridge, and then onto a Masters degree in Performance at Mountview, one of the UK`s top drama schools. I work at the London School of Tuition as an educational consultant, and have classroom experience.

Over the past several years, in my tutoring career, I have helped students from ages 7 to 21, providing assistance in every area of academic life: from the eleven-plus and common entrance exams to A-levels, the IB and undergraduate dissertations, via competitive debating and public speaking.

One-on-one tutoring is a blessing in its flexibility, and the opportunity it affords to build up a student`s confidence in a subject, away from the hothouse of school. I love connecting with each student to find out how they learn best, in order to help them achieve and surpass their goals — and hopefully have some fun along the way!

Over the past 12 months, my most recent students include eleven-plus candidates getting into their first choice schools, middle school children discovering a newfound confidence with written and spoken texts, and GCSE and A-level students improving by two grades.

Very thorough in his approach and engaging with the child to harness interest and enthusiasm for the subject.

James is the most wonderful inspirational tutor. He worked so hard with my twin boys to get them through their GCSES in English. They both passed. Being dyslexic didn’t get in the way and James helped my son achieve a 7 in Literature! Thank you so much! The twins thank you so much. They loved their lessons with you.

James has started tutoring my son and only good comments I heard. It seems like my son is very happy with James tutoring him and from what he tells me he is learning very well.

We`ve had English Literature lessons from James for two years. He`s been amazing, supportive, always prepared for lessons. We`d like to thank him once more.

James is a truly wonderful tutor. He started with my older son who was not doing particularly well in GCSE English. James connected quickly with him and sparked his interest in the subject and, as a result of the support he received from James, he ended up with a 9 on his English GCSE. James then stated working with my younger son who looks forward to his sessions each week and always comes away happy and excited. He is doing incredibly well in English as a result. We couldn`t recommend James more.

James is extremely friendly and makes the classes engaging, whilst losing none of the intellectual vigour. He is always very generous with his time, and the sessions have undoubtedly helped grades.

James is helping my daughter Eleanor to secure a grade A/A* in English Literature (A level). A friendly ,helpful and engaging tutor. Eleanor really enjoys her sessions and am sure she will do very well. He will go out of his way to support or help in any way he can. Highly recommend.

James is a great tutor. He communicates well with us and has an excellent subject knowledge. He is professional in his manner at all times and best of all, our son says he is a really good teacher who is helping him to really move forward in his learning. James facilitates opportunities for our son to think and write independently and provides feedback to support him make progress.

You`ve set high expectations for our child and we think she met them! She was predicted grade 5 and now because of your hard work she got grade 7 I wanted to let you know you did a great job and we thank you so much.
