Information About James - Oxford tutor - (8 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated James:
I am a fully qualified Primary School teacher with over 12 years experience and a good understanding of children and what makes them tick. I have always had an interest in a wide variety of disciplines - studying English and Maths to A-Level, studying Mechanical Engineering to a Masters level, and keeping my French going all the time with courses alongside. I also like to illustrate.
I have over 12 years experience teaching in two State Primary schools. I am known for my curriculum expertise and my ability to get alongside and nurture the children in my care, recently having been given responsibility for leading Pupil Premium work. I have led mathematics in both schools and seen through a few changes in the curriculum. I have some experience tutoring both one to one and in small groups and these have always been very rewarding.
My approach is flexible depending on what is needed. I would usually begin with the topic they are currently studying or any objectives that have been identified as weaker areas and expand from there. I would be looking at the key objectives in the curriculum to discover any further gaps. My sessions are fun, challenging, and meet the needs of the child as they are discovered.
