Hi guys! I'm James, and I'd love to help you study smarter, revise more efficiently, and boost your grades. Having tutored over 40 students ranging from Year 4 to Year 12 (IB/VCE), I have a wealth of teaching experience and possess an adaptable and comprehensive teaching approach.

My tutoring strategy is simple, but effective. My teaching has two key premises - thorough understanding, and structured practice. A thorough understanding minimises the need for rote learning or memorisation, and structured practice gives you the opportunity to apply and consolidate that understanding.

Throughout Year 12, I juggled leadership responsibilities, academic commitments, sport, debating and extensive involvement in the music scene. Through this, I learnt the importance of adopting best-practice study strategies, and how recognising patterns in subject content can completely change the way you study. These experiences taught me how to work productively when time is highly limited, and I hope to be able to share these insights with you.
