About me

I am an enthusiastic and highly experienced tutor studying in my fourth year of medical school at the University of Leeds. I was initially drawn to Medicine because of the way it combined my love of the sciences with my dedication to supporting others. My time at university so far has confirmed my passion for my subject and it's a passion that I want to share with others through tutoring and teaching. I have recently taken a year out of medicine to complete an MSc in molecular biology.

I offer university tuition in Biology and preclinical medicine. I also offer A-level and IB tuition in Biology and Psychology, and GCSE tuition in all three Sciences and Psychology. In addition, I am keen to support anyone who has a desire to apply for medical school to ace their application. This might be through helping with personal statements, interview techniques or just general advice on the process.


Get in touch if you think I might be able to help you with anything. Looking forward to hearing from you!

About my sessions

My approach to tuition is heavily guided by the learning style of each particular student. No two people learn in the same way and I modify my techniques accordingly to help to get the best out of each individual. For instance, some students learn best with visual information and others learn better through more auditory means. For the more visual learners, I make use of videos, animations and colourful diagrams to aid my explanations. For the more auditory learners, it might be that a mnemon...

My approach to tuition is heavily guided by the learning style of each particular student. No two people learn in the same way and I modify my techniques accordingly to help to get the best out of each individual. For instance, some students learn best with visual information and others learn better through more auditory means. For the more visual learners, I make use of videos, animations and colourful diagrams to aid my explanations. For the more auditory learners, it might be that a mnemonic or rhyme works best to cement the knowledge. I'm keen to learn about each student that I tutor so that we can work out a method that works best for you.


Tutorials will follow a loose structure. Firstly, we will outline the objectives of the session which we will refer back to throughout the tutorial to check understanding. We will then cover each learning point in turn. I will explain concepts and often get the student to explain these back to me - as the best way to learn is to teach something to someone else. To finish off the session I will often present a typical examination question which we can work through.

James has tutored me for my Biopsychology module at University for a complete term. His help has been invaluable - James truly has gone above and beyond to support my learning: he always comes prepared for the lesson, whether that is with multiple choice questions for me to practice, essay plans I can use for the exam, or lecture slides. He is great at explaining and this stems from his breadth of knowledge and patience. Not only is he familiar with all the medical/biology side of things but he also knows a lot about psychobiology. All the lessons have been tailored to my needs. Over and above that, James is very engaging and has made my sessions really enjoyable, so I would highly recommend him.

James is very knowledgeable. He has been tutoring me Biopsychology regularly for the past 2 months and his help has been invaluable. He has the ability to make difficult concepts clear and goes above and beyond to support my learning. I would highly recommend James for university tutoring.
