Whatever level of experience, James enjoys helping student's reach their potential and likes them to walk away after each lesson with a feeling of accomplishment. Before a student's first lesson, James likes to find out a little bit about their experience, their aims and goals which allow him to create a personalised plan for their initial session. He can also provide reports for parents every quarter with regards to student’s progress.
