Over the past six years James has gained a breadth of experience in teaching, tutoring, and admissions consulting services alongside earning a First Class BA in Spanish and Russian from the University of Oxford, living and working in various foreign countries, and editing for multiple academic journals.
Since James’ first teaching experience offering classes in Spanish and French at local primary schools, they have constantly been seeking to improve their own skills in connecting with students’ different learning styles and engaging and retaining their interest in a subject. James is also practiced in tutoring students whose first language is not English, having taught classes at Hengshui High School in China and tutored students there for an English Language Speech Competition.
More recently, James has worked in admissions consulting, helping families choose universities to apply to, reviewing applications and personal statements and offering guidance on how to elevate applications. James is further able to draw on their personal experience and knowledge of the Oxbridge admissions process to help applicants prepare for admissions tests and interviews.
In every teaching, tutoring and consulting experience it is very important to James to tune into a student’s own learning style and personalise the session.
