Personal Description:

** A Level Maths, Chemistry and Physics**

I graduated with a Double First in Natural Sciences from Pembroke College, University of Cambridge in 2016, finishing in the top 5 students in my year. I won 3 college scholarships and 2 departmental prizes for Physical Chemistry and my masters research project. In my bachelor's degree I studied Maths, Physics, Material Science and Chemistry before specialising in Chemistry. I pursued a master’s in Physical Chemistry. Outside of work, I enjoy playing football and golf.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 700 hours of tutoring experience for A Level and GCSE Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics as well as International Baccalaureate Mathematics and Physics and Undergraduate Chemistry in group and one-to-one situations. I have worked for a volunteer tutor organisation and an International Baccalaureate specific revision company, tutoring groups of international students, many of whom do not have English as their first language. I am currently tutoring A Level Chemistry, Physics and Maths, GCSE Physics and Chemistry and IB Physics. I have been DBS/CRB checked.

I specialise in online tuition as well as preparation and mock interviews for Oxbridge/university applications. My online tuition is conducted using an interactive whiteboard which the student can see in real time. All my online lessons are recorded and can be replayed by the student later.

My record with students includes:
A Level Chemistry - Student went from expected B to A, allowing her to progress to her medical school
A Level Physics - Student achieved an A* grade in physics and secured his place at Imperial
A Level Maths - Student`s predicted grade went from D to A
A Level Physics - Student`s predicted grade went from B to A*
A Level Chemistry - student went from expected grade F to achieve a C in Year 12 exam
University Interviews - prepared students for successful applications to Trinity College, University of Cambridge and Imperial College, London

Feedback from other students includes:
"We are delighted to have found James. My son says that he finds him to be extremely patient and he explains the physics topics very clearly. James is well prepared for sessions. He is reliable and punctual." GCSE Physics

"Everything was very good. I thought the amount of homework was right, explanations clear and the right amount of time was spent on each topic. I liked getting your notes after the lesson so I could focus on the topic and not worry about making my own notes." A Level Physics

“Everything was very good. I thought the amount of homework was right, explanations clear and the right amount of time was spent on each topic. I liked getting your notes after the lesson so I could focus on the topic and not worry about making my own notes.”
A Level Physics

"So far I have found the lessons incredibly helpful and informative as they have helped me to sit down and deal with some areas of Maths that I have been struggling with during the year. As a result my grades and predicted grade have increased significantly from a D to an A so I am very grateful for the help you have provided."
A Level Maths

"Thank you so much for helping me out these past couple of days. I've really learn a lot and appreciate the time you took in explaining things I didn't get first time round. I'm convinced this will help me in this final year."
IB Maths

"I think that our sessions so far have been helpful with the small details that I often miss. After spending another session or two I think I'll be a lot happier with organics. The homework definitely helps consolidate knowledge, and going through it together in the lesson helps clarify details that I was unsure of."
IB Chemistry

“James is an excellent tutor who I cannot recommend enough, he always arrives well prepared to every session and ensures he has an extensive knowledge of the subject he is teaching. James provides excellent explanations and has helped so much with improving my learning and passion for the subject he assisted me with.”
A Level Physics

“James quickly built up a rapport with my son who has found his sessions very helpful. James is always well prepared and ensures that he has done his homework before each session. Thoroughly recommended.”
A Level Maths

"I feel that my lessons so far have been very useful for me to consolidate what I have learnt so far and I feel far stronger now than at the start."
IB Maths

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to reflect back to me what they are learning after I explain concepts. This can take a range of forms from attempting questions which we then discuss to students explaining topics back to me and answering my questions. Different students prefer different methods and I adapt my tutoring to suit individuals. This approach allows me to focus on areas in need of improvement and also enables the student to see their progress, giving them confidence.
