Information about James
I have a decade of experience working in academia at both the University of Sheffield and the University of Surrey in Computer Science. My own PhD was attained in 2005 working in the area of Computer Graphics and Animation. I specialise in all areas of programming, particularly C/C++. I have a great deal of experience in tutoring students at degree level and greater, but am perfectly happy to teach at a more introductory level.

James is very knowledgeable, patient, helpful and conduct the lesson in a very efficient manner. My son is preparing for GCSE in Computing and said that after 3 sessions he could understand much better the subject. I recommend him.
Excellent subject knowledge, patient, punctual.
James is a great tutor, Im happy with his teaching style and feel that I have already started to understand some very confusing concepts in Java.
Very clear teaching and a brilliant understanding of all aspects of the A level course. Highly recommend.
Java lessons for adult learner. Very nice helpful chap. Knowledgeable and seems to grade the lesson to the right standard. Gives homework tasks to build on lessons. Punctual.
Dr James is a very reliable, extremely patient, punctual and passionate tutor, who gives his heart to his tutees, having ability to lower the exclusive concept of coding to the level of the common and whom I want to recommend to everyone whom I know. First time, Josh met him, Josh was about to be kicked out from his Computer science subject-to his shame-, being transferred to BTEC. But when I was desperately looking for a C Science tutor the night before his AP4 exam, asking him to help us, he was willing to come and patiently and sacrificially helped my son. The result was amazing that Josh was qualified to stay in Computer Science rather than moving to BTEC. In his second lesson, thoroughly prepared, constantly explaining to Josh again and again, until he could somehow grasp the concept of Python, James didn`t give up. Now I don`t worry about Josh`s GCSE C Science, and Python anymore, since I know that my son eventually is in the right track through the immesurable support from the tutor, who is outstanding but very down to earth to the level of the 14 year old competitive swimmer boy who has no interest in computer science. Thank you so much, Dr James! Sunny (Josh`s mum)
Great tutor, helped me a lot with understanding algorithms and data structures. James is very good with Java as well and helped with all of my questions.
Knows a lot about the topic and explains it clearly and breaks it down so it`s easier to understand.
James responded quickly and is professional and reliable. He is helpful and approachable and my son is finding his teaching immensely useful. Definitely recommended.
As a beginner learning to code James was extremely helpful! I would definitely recommend to others!
James is an excellent tutor and is always well prepared for every lesson. He has a huge amount of knowledge in many areas of computer science and has really helped me grasp some tricky concepts regarding my degree course.
I would definitely recommend him.
The tutor was very good and explained things in a clear and concise way. However as i had a resit in just over 25 days i felt that the lessons where too slow and more suited to those who are looking to learn c++ over a period of 6 months to a year
Clear explanation of topics. Engaging.
Is an excellent tutor, glad I chose him to help me with my studies. Very thorough and goes through things in detail, ensures you understand before moving on. Would definitely come back to learn in the event I need more help! Prepares well for lessons as well! Thank you for your help :)
James is an excellent tutor. Sessions are well organised, concepts are explained very clearly, he gives you the opportunity to think of/suggest solutions to problems yourself to develop self confidence and is very patient. Would recommend highly
Incredibly organised - every session was very well planned and we managed to cover a lot of work each time we met. Also very patient and understanding of tasks required and the help I required. Fully recommend James to anybody who needs tutoring.
