Information about James

"Rating: 5/5 Fantastic tutor.
Our son doesn`t easily engage with tutors but has enjoyed his lessons with James thoroughly.
James has been punctual, committed and taken time to understand our son`s weaknesses, James has truly been amazing.
We would highly recommend him." S. T.

"James is a very good teacher and particularly connects well with teenagers.
He has an enormous amount of patience and an excellent knowledge of his subjects.
He was always on time and often stayed longer if he was in the middle of explaining things. He not only tutored but he also gave support on revision techniques and managing time. James is very approachable, was well liked and has an enthusiasm for his subjects which rubs off. I would strongly recommend James as a tutor." - T. D.

"James was always punctual to sessions and had a way of explaining topics and ideas in a clear and understandable manner. He also ensured to read through the course material to fully understand it before teaching it. With his guidance I achieved the grades in Physics to secure my university place.” - G. I.

"Thank you so much for all your help, James, you’ve been an exceptional influence on B’s performance. […] We want you to make sure you’re available for S too in a years time” - B. N.

“I’ll be sure to spread your name far and wide. And of course we’ll be asking for your assistance when L is starting GCSEs” - A. M.

“He proved to be an excellent tutor for G who achieved his grade to study mechanical engineering at his chosen university. I have no hesitation in recommending him in any tutoring post.” - J. S.

With a Master’s degree from the University of Oxford and 8 years’ experience tutoring pupils in both maths and the sciences, I seek to achieve the highest academic excellence, and grow within them a passion for learning.
I create an honest, individual and exciting rapport with students, consistently reinvigorating perception of the subject at hand leaving both myself and the pupil looking forward to the next session. Forging a hard-working, fun and open atmosphere brings out the best results in my pupils as the peer-pressured classroom is replaced with an air of warm solidarity, support and good humour.
Through my work as a private tutor I have helped students exceed their own and their parents` high expectations allowing them to continue studying at the top level.
University of Oxford, Worcester College
Master of Engineering Science
During my research I authored a thesis entitled "Computational Analysis of the Spherical Aberration of the Eye" which furthered the work of an eminent professor in the field of emerging ophthalmological treatments.
I played football for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd College teams and rowed for my college, achieving "blades". My name can still be seen in chalk on the Worcester College quad walls.
I also regularly performed as a singer song-writer in local pubs and ran an open mic night in the college.
