Cambridge Engineering Student - Understands understanding :)

I am currently in the 3rd year of my Engineering degree at Cambridge University. Alongside my studies, I enjoy teaching maths and physics. I have frequently proven myself a favourite among the students I teach and delight in broadening their knowledge while aiding their understanding. Coming from a state educated background, I am well acquainted with students of all abilities and varying needs. I know the importance of students' understanding why they are doing what they are doing rather than just blindly following a process they don't fully comprehend.

I pride myself on being a very approachable individual who is kind and sympathetic. I always try my best to make my lessons as fun, interesting and interactive as possible and employ a wide variety of techniques to ensure each student's needs are met. Everyone is different, but my knowledge of the act of understanding allows me to tailor my tutoring to each student's personal attributes in order to help them achieve their full potential.

Teacher support at SPF

James supported my class of Year 11 students studying A/S Maths. He visited once per week for a double lesson. James very quickly developed an excellent rapport with the class. He was confident, sensitive, approachable and extremely helpful. The students thoroughly enjoyed his support and we're extremely attentive in the sessions where I encouraged James to lead the teaching. He is a natural teacher who easily sets Maths in a practical context. I thoroughly recommend him as a tutor.
