Information about James
I recently graduated from the University of Oxford, having completed a BA in History.
I am currently studying for a Masters (M.Phil.) in Early Modern History at Trinity College, Dublin.
I have recent experience of tutoring for GCSE English Language and English Literature, GCSE History, A Level History, A Level Music, A Level Politics, KS3 French, KS3 Maths, 11+ English and ab initio Latin and Spanish.
In my lessons, I aim to make everything as clear as possible by stripping away complex jargon and reinforcing first principles. I have found that this approach not only helps students better understand the content of their subject but also aids them in how to answer exam questions: for once they very clearly understand the material of the subject, the assessment objectives for the exam, and techniques for answering the questions in the most effective manner, the exam questions become much easier to answer.
My specialist subjects are History, English, Music, in which I have A Levels at A*AA grades, and French, in which I have an AS Level A grade.
I also have GCSE/IGCSE A* qualifications in Maths, Latin, Biology and Spanish and so would also be able to provide tuition in these.
Having recently undergone them myself, I can aid preparation for university interviews in any humanities subject.
I am a kind, patient, friendly, diligent, organised, reliable and knowledgeable tutor, with experience in tutoring and in teaching children in small groups in school.
I intend to pursue a career in teaching.
Do get in touch if you think I can help you or your pupil!

Feedback For James (10)
James is an excellent tutor. My son has found him incredibly helpful in his A level studies. Jame`s clear explanations and the way he unpicks complex topics has helped my son`s confidence. I would highly recommend him.
A dedicated and inspirational tutor. Highly recommend.
had only a few lessons
Very impressed with James, my 14 year old in year 10 enjoys lessons with James considering English literature was not his favourite subject but I have seen improvement in just a few lesson. James is very easy to get on with and his teaching style works for us.
James has been helping my son with A level history. My son describes him as extremely knowledgeable and able to explain the subject well.
James is always on time, quick to reply to questions, likeable and very happy to cover any subject that you would like extra help in. My daughter is feeling like she is making good progress and has a better understanding for her history A levels.
Since starting lessons with James my son has improved a lot at school. James is having a positive impact in my son.
Really good teacher . Calm and understandable , helpful and knowledgeable about music . Would highly recommend and ask to come again!
James was fantastic with my son for his Latin scolarship prep.
Weve had James as a Latin tutor for our son, for the summer and he has been fantastic! He is really encouraging, has lots of patience and is a great at explaining things. We are delighted with the progress our son has made so far.
