Suitability for tutoring
I have known James for almost six years, since he first came to work as a Visiting Tutor in the English and Comparative Department, at Goldsmiths, University of London. His contribution to the activities of the Department was excellent. His dedication and his enthusiasm during his time at Goldsmiths were remarkable. Colleagues and students alike particularly appreciated his professionalism and his personal qualities. In every respect, James’s contribution to the teaching of the First-Year introductory course to Literature and Theory, which I convene, was excellent. Students appreciated his organisational competence, his intelligent use of a variety of resources to stimulate interest and impart knowledge, his own high level of motivation, his ability to motivate others and above all his approachability. All reports regarding his classes attested the outstanding nature of his pedagogical skills. I have no hesitation in recommending James for a teaching position
Mr Haroon F
James has helped me to develop my skills, I couldn't recommend him more as his content knowledge and exam board knowledge is superb. I got my results today and I got an A* in Psychology! Thank you so much to James for all his help in helping me to prepare for my exams!
Mr Matthew H
James has been a real find. He has made an enormous impact, our son now has a far better understanding of the subject and is much more optimistic with his ability going forwards. James has improved my son's grades and understanding. James is patient and well prepared, and has been a pleasure to work with! Subject: A-level Psychology
