After gaining a degree in Mathematics and a PGCE in Secondary Maths I have spent 17 years teaching learners of all ages and abilities. This has given me invaluable knowledge into the range of difficulties the subject presents. With a friendly and patient approach I can help build your knowledge and skills so that you can reach your goals. I have taught Maths in a secondary school, a sixth form college and two F.E. colleges. During this time I have also tutored individuals at GCSE and AS level. I am available days and evenings, Monday to Friday.

James has been providing regular tutor sessions for my daughter to help her with resitting her Maths GCSE. He showed an excellent understanding of our needs and the exam process.
In the words of my daughter "he was awesome!... really great".

James is a friendly and supportive tutor. He has significantly changed my attitude towards my own maths ability and simplified areas of maths which I was struggling with. I'm now feeling much more confident about my upcoming exams. Thank you!

James is very friendly and punctual. So far, in four lessons he has already helped my son to gain more confidence as he approaches his GCSE Maths exam. We are very happy to have been able to have him as a tutor to help with revision .

James has been amazing. My daughter has had 4 lessons prior to her GCSE's and her confidence has improved no end. I would recommend James without reservation.

My daughter has only had 3 lessons with James and within that period of time, she has gained more confidence in Maths as James focuses on her weaknesses. He does this by going through a topic in a simplistic way in which my daughter is able to understand and his teaching is very thorough. Moreover, James has a friendly approach and is very patient.

My daughter is really enjoying her lessons, James tuition is building up her confidence in the subject. I would highly recommend James as he listens to what my daughter needs, and wants to learn offering encouragement and advice. Thank you.

James helps me find easier ways to complete maths questions rather than the more complicated long winded ways I get taught at college. Using these methods I can understand the questions more easily and find key pieces of information from the question to use in these new methods of working.

James has been really patient and kind to our son who finds maths challenging added to the fact he has been unwell for a year and been out of school for 9 months. James has taken this all in his stride and found a way to increase his confidence even after only 3 lessons!

James takes time to explain the subject to my daughter .
In the few lessons she has had with him, her confidence has grown in maths .

Very pleased with progress after three lessons. James is thorough and our son tells us they get through a lot of GCSE work and James explains things very well.
