Fully qualified Primary Specialist with over 30 years experience.
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I am a fully qualified Primary Specialist.
BA Classical Studies Reading University 1986
PGCE Primary Cardiff University 1989
I have 30 years experience teaching KS1 and KS2 ( Y1 to Y6).
My specialist areas are Maths and English, including early reading, spelling and the use of phonics. I have taught all Maths and English topics and levels from aged 4 to 11 and additionally have led the development of Maths teaching throughout my current school.
I am experienced across both state and private sectors and currently teach part-time at a well known private school in York.
I love tutoring on a 1 to 1 basis as I always see accelerated progress in students. They are more likely to grasp new topics and concepts with such a focused input and with no distractions and this is always very gratifying.
Where do I go from here?
You can send James Newton a message through Sherpa and they will usually get back to you within 24 hours. You'll receive an SMS and email notification when they do so.
How do the introductions work?
Sherpa gives you the opportunity to meet our tutors in a free 20 minute introduction, which takes place through the Sherpa classroom.
How do lessons work?
All lessons take place through Sherpa's online, industry-leading classroom. This is a combination of a collaborative, real time whiteboard and a video call, like Zoom.
