About me

My university course is very maths, chemistry and physics intensive. Tackling the future challenges of climate change, overpopulation, and space-travel are all ambitions that I can work towards from my studies. Here’s a 9-minute YouTube video on what chemical engineering is if you’re interested: https://bit.ly/2C6y0nE

I find biochemical engineering particularly interesting, so much so that I had undertaken a twelve-month placement with GSK, a world-leading healthcare company. I applied my university knowledge to help design a chemical process to produce new and life-changing drugs for patients around the world. All of it required strong understanding and application of maths, chemistry and physics!


At university, I am a part of the Engineers without Borders society. I travel to primary schools to teach children about the importance of engineering in a simple and fun manner. I also had the privilege to be elected the course representative for over 200 of my peers, which lead to further positive change in education. Outside of university, I have a part-time job grading diamonds and rare gems, it’s an interesting way to apply my maths, chemistry and physics knowledge!

About my sessions

With our online sessions, I structure these in two ways and all it’s tailored to the student. These are:


1)   I lead the session. I teach the topic tailored to the syllabus – the student can learn with a fresh mind and is in a comfortable environment to ask questions at any point. We then follow with a short quiz at the end of the session to reinforce the student’s learning and highlight their progress. This is more common in earlier sessions.

We then follow with a short quiz at the end of the session to reinforce the student’s learning and highlight their progress. This is more common in earlier sessions.


2)   The student takes the lead – we work through problems at the student’s choosing so we can hone in on those tricky areas, ready for the exam. I’ve found this especially useful in the run-up to exams.


The great thing about this style is that we can switch between them as we go along, so it’s really at the student’s preference on which they need at the time. I’m always open to feedback so we can fine-tune the best method as we go along.


If you're interested, please let me know by booking a free video chat. I look forward to meeting you and otherwise wish you all the best in your exams!

Really clear step by step guides to answer exam questions which make answering questions much more simplistic. Always happy to focus on new things each lesson or follow through developing understanding on the topic - best tutor ive had

I found it really helpful due to the fact that I had never learnt this type of topic and James was able to help me understand the theory and application of the process.
