Our daughter began her A-Level Maths course with concerns over her ability to truly understand the many new concepts that would head her way. She is a very hard worker and, once shown a technique, could mimic what she had learned easily, but was confounded when similar questions were presented to her in a different way. She recognised that she was grasping techniques, but not learning fundamental theories, in her Maths classes at school. James quickly developed a rapport with our daughter and diagnosed her specific issues. He came up with a customised programme appropriate to her needs, balancing alternative explanations for the theories she had already been exposed to in school with a rigorous set of practice work that highlighted where the system would try to ‘trick’ her. James’ ability to engage with our child, enthuse our child and guide our child to her best possible performance represent an absolute credit to his skill and capabilities as a tutor. He should take pride in the A grade she achieved. We would give James our highest recommendation to fellow parents looking to focus and enhance their children’s mathematical performances.
