Information About James - Northampton tutor
This is how 4 referees rated James:
I am an experienced teacher having taught full-time in schools for eighteen years. I have a secondary PGCE in teaching Classics and a Classics degree from Cambridge University. I am easy-going and patient but dedicated and aspirational for the children with whom I work. I am passionate about learning and eager to share my love of learning with young people.
I have taught predominantly in independent prep schools, so have great experience working with Common Entrance and Scholarship entrance exams.
I am available for tutoring in the holidays only.
I have taught English, History, Latin and Drama to pupils throughout Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 for eighteen years. I am, however, a secondary qualified Cambridge University graduate and, therefore, able to teach GCSE and A-Level. I am currently tutoring English and History to GCSE and A-Level pupils.
I am currently involved in running after-school Latin clubs in various Northampton schools (primary and secondary) and I run a Youth Theatre in Northampton.
Teaching young people is about developing a relationship with them - which is best done face to face - and then challenging them to excel. Young people benefit from clarity and from enthusiasm. My input is clear and will challenge pupils to excel. However, every pupil is different so I shall work hard to find what style and method suits each child.
I am willing to travel but will ask for a mileage fee based on the number of miles in excess of ten.
I shall bring all materials and resources and I am polite, punctual and well-prepared.
