Information about James

I am a final year student at University College London (UCL) studying a degree in Maths and Economics, who has averaged a high first class in both years and completed an internship at Goldman Sachs. Having been a tutor for the past 5 years and achieving 4A*s at A-Level as well as A* in all 11 subjects at GCSE, I feel extremely confident in my ability to tutor all students up to A-levels.

My results whilst tutoring speak for themselves, helping a student being awarded a scholarship for Eltham College as well as a strong set of GCSE’s for another student including two 9’s. I have also helped at Year9/10 level, guiding a student to their strongest end of year exam results to date. My feedback (on this website) highlights the parents perspective of my tuition- where I`m not just strong tutoring the academics but also help the student enjoy the process of learning. I feel one of my biggest advantages is that being of a similar age, I am able to relate to their worries and concerns and therefore build a rapport with them, which assists with their development.

I achieved an average of 98% in Mathematics A-Level and 88% in Further Mathematic’s. Furthermore, my Economics papers are to be used by the school next year as exemplars to future students. Also, at GCSE level I achieved A* in all 11 subjects as well as the maximum grade of A in the notoriously difficult Free Standing Maths Qualification. Therefore, I feel I have the academic credentials to tutor those wanting to improve and excel in their subjects.

Additionally, I played three sports for the school first team and the piano, showing I understand the importance of time management and pressures of school life. Furthermore, I often worked with younger children, having coached a Year 7 Football Team and been a prefect to Year 10 students. This role allowed me to help the children manage the growing pressure of public exams and I am more than willing to pass on any of this non-curriculum advice including the process of choosing GCSE subjects.

I believe that tutoring should be a more personal form of education outside of school, leading to increased success in both school and public, which is something that I believe I provide.

Availability: I`m very flexible and happy to discuss times that suit both our needs.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have tutored 7 students over the past 5 years across a vast range of ages and subjects.

Despite the unprecedented situation this year, my work in the latter part of 2019 proved pivotal with 2 different GCSE students increasing their predicted grades after mocks in January following sessions with myself by 2 and 3 levels. This ultimately was what determined their final GCSE results this August.

In 2019, I had an excellent set of results, with a student achieving level 9 in Maths and Physics GCSE, whilst another achieving a level 8 in Physics. In each case, these were improvements by 2 levels from earlier predicted grades. Furthermore, a student achieved an A* in Maths A-level following 5 months of my tuition.

Previously, I regularly tutored a student in Maths and Science at KS3 Level whilst the other passed his GCSE Maths with A* this summer. My third from that year was awarded a scholarship for Eltham College (a highly competitive private school.)

I have always been reliable and punctual and enjoy engaging with the student- which is all supported by their feedback comments. I`m excited to continue tutoring in my final year of university and know that my experiences over the past 5 years can continue to help students excel in exams.

James has been tutoring my two daughters for maths and physics GCSE. He is a brilliant tutor who conducts himself with great professionalism at all times. My daughters feel very confident he will help them achieve the best results possible when they site their GCSEs in the next 3 months time.

James was quick to respond but was unable help with the schedule I required. However he introduced me to one of his colleagues who has been excellent. My daughter is already more confident and looks forward to the weekly sessions

Unfortunately James couldn`t tutor my son, but he was very good in recommending a friend of his, who is helping my son a lot.

James has been very good at clearly explaining Maths and Science at KS3 to my 13 year old son. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor.
