Information about James

My name is James I thought about teaching when I was at secondary school, I`m now 40 years old. Tutoring for me is a second profession. I attended the Christchurch Secondary School in Ashford and have attained a DTLLS - Diploma in Teaching over 2 years part time study at Christchurch University. I teach as part of my day job, teaching law and legislation to the new Police Officers.

My passion for teaching in my day job excited me to the point where I wanted to support others in maximizing their potential.

I have been teaching as part of my current role for 6 years, initially with a city and guilds qualification in assessing. I then wanted to further my professional development by completing a teaching diploma at University which I achieved in 2014. I am responsible for teaching new recruits in my day job. This has involved classroom based teaching, scenario assessing and assessing individuals in the workplace against a set of National Occupational Standards (NOS`s) set and awarded by City of Guilds.

I now run a successful tutoring business alongside my current day job.

**I specialise is assisting with GCSE maths and English along with November Retakes and 11+ prep**

All of my students have access to their own student areas online and a vast array of revision documents to further assist them.

I have tutored adults aged 18 - 65 at work and also young persons aged 9 -16. I have children myself with the youngest now 8 years of age whom I regular tutor in Maths and English.

in 2018 my tutored students attained grades A-C nothing below !!

99% of students tutored in 11+ technique went on to pass the test !

My aim is to make the subject fun and engaging. Without having this engagement, learning simply doesn`t happen. The student has to be the number one priority. Being able to talk to the student about common interests as well as the subject matter will allow them to have that moment of escapism before being brought back to the subject at hand. My sessions, although structured to the syllabus being taught are always adaptable and so therefore the style of my teaching will always adapt to allow the student to get the very best from the session.

My style of teaching is relaxed yet purposeful ensuring a quality service.

Please feel free to ask me any questions i will reply as soon as possible.

I run a successful tutoring company. With students aged 8-60

My results for the last year have been incredible with every GCSE student gaining a grade A-C and 95% of 11+ students passed in 2015. rising to GCSE Grades A-C in 2018 and 99% 11+ pass rate.

My daughter likes him and he appears to make things easy for her to understand. He communicates well and turns up on time. James appears calm and is always prepared to help however he can.

Reliable tutor, good communication, easy to get on with, working well with our 17 year old. Highly recommended.

Disappointing. Despite numerous attempts to contacts Mr James, he, with the exception of one text, failed to follow up any of my subsequent attempts to contact him and left me with no explanation.

Time was pressing and so Mr James inability to establish any sort of communication meant that I had to spend another 20 pounds to contact another Tutor who has, thankfully, proved to be a great deal more reliable.

Excellent tutor. My 14 year old son likes the use of tech to do test papers. James explains how to work out question in a concise and uncomplicated way ( so my son doesn’t lose interest).

He`s clearly good ..as my son was very engaged .
Shame out of six 6 sessions we`ve only seen him twice ...due to circumstances....

James is a very gifted tutor who really aspires to inspiring his pupils. My son enthuses whenever he has his eleven plus tutorials as James makes the class exciting and praiseworthy, enjoyable and fun! Every lesson he engages with my son - and the idea is to have fun whilst learning which is exactly what James brings to the table! (Literally!)

James always arrives on time. He has given my granddaughter the confidence she so badly needed and she says that `James explains things so that she understands`. More than happy with this tutor. Thank you James
