Information about James

Hi! I`m James, a History graduate of the University of Cambridge. In my regular working hours, I am the Communications Director for the young political party Renew.

Having tutored for a number of years in English Literature and Language, History, Politics and Philosophy - as well as graded Classical Guitar - I am well-versed in private tuition. A proficient writer, I have a particuarly keen interest in the history of philosophy and European politics, but also have a wealth of degree-level expertise in other areas of historical study, such as the colonisation of North America and the Vietnam War. My professional experience gives me a unique insight into the world of politics, and I worked with a number of prominent politicians in the European elections of 2019.

As a young and modern tutor, I provide friendly and accessible tuition to anyone with a desire to learn. I regularly make use of virtual Docs to provide real-time corrections and demonstrations for my students on an editable online document.

As well as this, I employ online media resources, finding that films, documentary footage and music can aid the learning process. This is particularly useful for those studying English literature, as it enables us to make sense of the language we learn in a way that is stimulating and practical. Nonetheless, given that historical, political and philosophical issues regularly crop up in popular culture, different types of media can shed light on all of these areas of study.

Despite all of this I am a flexible and understanding tutor, always willing to listen to my students` work concerns. I have no problem with them driving the direction of our study based on their specific academic needs.

My core philosophy is to view learning as a fun and enlightening experience when it is made real for students, whichever subject they study. History, for example, is all around us, from the buildings we inhabit to the streets we walk on and the books we read. It`s this type of insight that helps us to invest in human knowledge and succeed in our studies.
