Hey! I'm James and studying Finance at the London School of Economics. From the very first time I revised for an exam (11+) to my most recent exams (A-levels) I've been refining and altering my revision strategy and believe I have found an excellent method for acing your exams!

I played 1st XV rugby at school and currently play in a national league with my club. I used to play county tennis and golf (hcp 4) and love sports.

Most recently I helped my younger sister through her GCSE's and she achieved an outstanding set of grades.

Maths was my first real academic passion, I loved the struggle and the problem solving involved and most of all the fulfilment it provided. From personal experience I think the best way to learn maths is by practicing solving problems - it provides real time feedback on how good your understanding is and clearly highlights the room for improvement.

Physics and Economics (my two other A-levels) are also two fascinating subjects. Both require a systematic approach but in completely different ways.

About my sessions

For me teaching is all about asking the right questions that allows the students to make the connections themselves. In my lessons I will challenge the students to think through problems they are unsure about and will be helping them along the way.

By starting with simple problems on a topic to make sure the foundation is in place, to then building up to more and more challenging questions to test the true strength of the understanding of a topic, will ensure that no stone is unturned.<...

For me teaching is all about asking the right questions that allows the students to make the connections themselves. In my lessons I will challenge the students to think through problems they are unsure about and will be helping them along the way.

By starting with simple problems on a topic to make sure the foundation is in place, to then building up to more and more challenging questions to test the true strength of the understanding of a topic, will ensure that no stone is unturned.

The best way for us to track progress is through regular testing to see truly where a student is at. I will implement this by using regular quiz's and mini-test to make sure progress is being made.

I will create an enjoyable working environment which is stress free to provide the best possible chance for the brain to think deeply. Ultimately my lessons will be rewarding when you achieve things that once seemed impossible.
