A bit about James Newton

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.
