## Information about James

*****ONLINE TUTORIALS - Corona virus update: I also offer online tutorials using skype and online collaborative whiteboard software. With this we can simultaneously write and solve equations using a stylus and discuss the ideas and problems. When I write something it appears on your screen and when you write something it appears on my screen in real-time. This can also be done entirely on browsers so you do not need to install any new software so we can get started with just a couple of links.

Strong 1st in Theoretical Physics from Imperial College London, PGCE in Secondary Mathematics with Distinction, valid enhanced DBS certificate, A*A*A*A* A-level. Experience teaching in schools and tutoring individuals.

**Availability: **Sunday-Friday, 10am-8pm

**Willing to travel: **5 miles

**Experience: **I have tutoring and teaching experience from GCSE to degree level in maths, further maths and physics, both one-one and to small groups with more limited experience tutoring larger groups.

Many students struggle with physics and mathematics having wrote learnt techniques or formulae without understanding what they are using. Understanding the underlying principles behind useful formulae: reduces the need for memorising, allows for more competent use and more general application. Not only that but, naturally it is a more enjoyable and rewarding way to learn. Tutoring offers the opportunity for students to ask questions where they might not have had the opportunity in class and can get answers as part of a discussion.

I tutor in the following:

Key stage 1-3 Maths and Science

GCSE Maths (IGCSE Edexcel, OCR, AQA, Edexcel)

GCSE Physics (IGCSE Edexcel, OCR, AQA, Edexcel)

.

A level Maths and Further Maths (OCR, MEI, AQA, Edexcel)

**Jeremy (Mr)***04/04/2022*

Our daughter has thoroughly benefitted from James tuition. he is very helpful and organised.

**Salina (Mrs)***15/03/2022*

James has recently started tutoring my year 12 son in maths. We are very pleased with the lessons we’ve received so far. James is a highly professional, punctual and experienced tutor. My son always feels he has accomplished a great deal in each tuition session with James. As a result we are now having Physics tuition with him too.

**Agnese (Miss)***11/11/2021*

My son is enjoying lessons with James. He explains very clearly all topics what my son don`t understand. So far happy

**Saniyah (Ms)***16/10/2021*

I had James for my A level maths studies, although we only had a month of lessons together, I truly saw an improvement in my math skills. I really recommend James as his ability to answer questions is amazing and he never missed a lesson. Thank you James!

**Clare (Mrs)***07/10/2021*

James tutored our son on A level Maths and physics. He managed to bring him from C/D performance, respectively, to A (nearly A*)/B in his actual A Level results (and his school had a very challenging and comprehensive assessment programme - the toughest of any I know of during Covid!). His calm nature and practical approach, teaching both gaps in concepts as well as practicing questions was very effective. We highly recommend him. Thanks so much, James!

**Lena (Miss)***10/09/2021*

I am very grateful to have had James as my tutor, he is both passionate about the subjects he teaches whilst being attentive to detail. I have never felt any judgment when asking questions, and he is willing to go the extra mile for his students. Within my year with him I saw results quickly, not only achieving higher grades but also feeling more comfortable with my subjects and gained the ability to critically think through theories due to tips that he always integrated within our lessons. I highly recommend him to any student, and again cannot stress how appreciative I am of my time with him this year.

**Isabel (Mrs)***08/09/2021*

He explained things very well to my son

**Molly (Miss)***15/04/2021*

Has helped my son enormously during his A Level Maths. Highly recommend James!

**Lina (Mrs)***02/01/2021*

James has really been helping my daughter grasp some key A-level concepts by working through different topics and looking at how she would be tested on them in the exam. My daughter finds Maths generally quite difficult and James has helped by explaining things in detail and going over a concept again if necessary until understood.

**Naveed (Mr)***26/12/2020*

Very pleased with the lessons James provided and it gave my daughter the confidence and understanding in the maths topics that were covered. Would definitely recommend.
