About me

My decision to become a tutor was inspired by my own experience of being tutored. I felt that being tutored helped me improve my confidence in English and in my own opinion in general, while also helping me improve my exam technique. As a result of this I achieved an A and an A* at GCSE, and found the whole tutoring experience so valuable I continued with the subject to A-level. I hope to give you the same experience by tailoring each tutorial to your individual needs, something I felt was very important to my positive experience of being tutored.

Both history and economics exams require both conceptual understanding and knowledge of intricate details. As a tutor I will work hard to understand the specific areas in which you may be struggling, so you are able to better apply your knowledge as examples in exams and essays.

My experience as a student in these subjects has taught me the importance of exam technique as well as knowledge. As such, if you are struggling in this area I will happily provide constructive feedback to exams or essays, in addition to analysing the requirements of the exam board prior to our session.

Although a very different subject, in Maths both exam technique and subject knowledge are also very important. I taught myself Maths to A-level, which I feel will help me tutor others in Maths due to my own experience of breaking down concepts into different parts to solve the problem in hand.

I have some previous experience in tutoring. Aside from helping my younger sister with Maths and History homework, I also spent a year at school mentoring a dyslexic reader and at school I was often approached for advice on exam technique and to help explain concepts.

I think I am in a great position to help you achieve your full potential, and will work hard with you to help you achieve this by treating you as an individual.

Questions James has answered

What is the difference between communists and capitalists

Communism and Capitalism are both economic systems, with followers of Communism known as communists and followers of Capitalism known as capitalists.

Put simply, they are polar opposites. Communists want to nationalise all industry, with the economy operating under a system of common ownership which they believe leads to a classless society. In contrast, capitalists believe that it is the private ownership of industry that is most beneficial to society, as this encourages individuals to work hard so they can gain the maximum reward. In so doing, they would see the class system not as an evil - as communists do - but as an incentive for individuals to better themselves.
