Map for James (Mr)


Personal Description:

I have always had an interest in science, and have good mathematical ability. I tend to think outside the box but make good analogies to help learning. Biology is and has always been my strength area.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently an Academic mentor with specific focus on improving pupil acheivement. My key strengths are small group and one to one assistance, with SEN assistance where appropriate. I completed my PGCE Theory qualification through the Graduate teacher programme, prefering then to move into mentoring rather than teaching directly. I have worked directly in education for close to 5 years now, but worked previously providing mortgage advice, which could be considered a different type of "teaching"

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed. My aim is to help students make links in their topics they are learning as science is in everything, and much of the current curriculum fits together. Making those links builds a stronger mental image for recall. Additionally, giving genuine applications of science relevant to the subject strengthens the knowledge further.
