Information about James


I am a chemistry graduate, previously a teacher of science, and tutor of 6 years.

You will find me conversational, patient, easy going, knowledgeable and passionate about chemistry. The emphasis of time together is to impart a deep understanding, not simply to remember the words required to pick up marks in the exam.

I have a thorough and profound understanding across many topics in science, which really helps with understanding and deep learning. I will never teach you to just `remember facts`, I will work to help you discover and understand scientific principles intuitively for yourself, so that you REALLY understand. With science, how you think about a problem is as important as the correct answer.

My tutoring generally involves lots of dialogue. I am not happy you understand something until you can explain it to me. I will also get you to make revision flash cards on key points as we go along, so that by the end of our session you will have something to refer to, and structure revision as you approach the exam.

Around exam time, it is important that the emphasis is on exam technique, becoming familiar with past-papers.

Availability: I recently moved to Farnham after a short break from tuition and looking to recruit new students. I am happy to set aside several evenings during the week, and some hours during the weekend. Feel free to get in touch to discuss your preference.

After School

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: During my first year of teacher training, I was observed by Ofsted. Ofsted said my teaching was `good`, and my subject knowledge was `outstanding` They said my passion for science was infectious and that they were pleased a good scientist had chosen to enter the teaching profession.

I now work in medical education, and campaign on issues of science policy. I have tutored many students through GCSE and A-level, and happy to provide references on request.
