James has been most helpful for my daughter whose class was left without an effective maths teacher after the initial one left for cancer treatment. The replacement or relief teacher was clueless about handling the class which fell so far back because of the break in between. We are very thankful that he had her adequately prepared for NCEA level one maths. Very well recommended and much appreciated.

In a short period of time James have managed to let my daughter grasp what the school teacher couldn't do for ages. All factors considered I believe having a one on one tutorial is great to better understand what a child have learned at school and what needs helping.with. James gave my daughter a good understanding of the Basic Calculus that pave way for a great foundation for her to tackle the more complex problems with confidence. Thank you so much. Highly recommended!

I found James' tutoring service for NCEA Level 1 Maths to be highly beneficial to my progress, and I feel my understanding of algebra is greatly improved because of his patient and professional teaching style. He has many resources and was happy to work with my own exercise books to make the content more relevant to my own studies. Even when it took me a long time to grasp a concept, James was patient and flexible in trying to teach it to me in new ways without giving me the answer upfront.

Our son was having an extremely hard time with his math. Even though we have had the privilege of having James as a tutor, for only a short time our son has more confidence with understanding numbers and processing. James is wonderfully calming and patient. We look forward to continuing 2018 with James as our sons math Tutor. James is irreplaceable.

I came to James as an adult learner with very (very) little background in maths, needing to gain understanding of yr 12-13 mathematics for a university entrance qualification. James was kind, patient, and very effective in his methods of explaining things simply for me. James was flexible with his timing and took the time to set work for me to do in between sessions which really helped. I would highly recommend James to any needing to gain skill/confidence in math. Thanks James

We needed a tutor to help build our Year 9 sons confidence in Maths and luckily for us we found James. James has helped our son get to a level where he now enjoys maths and is switched on to the subject as he no longer feels inadequate alongside his classmates. Big thanks to James for his help, I'd highly recommend him.

James has been tutoring my 15 year old daughter for the last 5 months. Maths was always her weak point and something she struggled to grasp. Last term she sat her first internal for NCEA Level 1 Maths and got her results back last week - she passed with Excellence! Unbelievable. We are so happy with her lessons and wish we had looked at tutoring sooner. Her confidence has lifted tenfold. James is professional and goes the extra mile, he is flexible if we need to change. 100% recommend!

James is incredibly patient and hard working. He goes the extra mile to research for you the right material needed to study, and will go through each problem step by step until you actually understand the concepts, not just get the right answers. I gained UE thanks to his tutoring, which absolutely could not have been done for him - best investment of my life! Excellent tutor, highly recommended!!

My 15yr old daughter's review "I knew the rules for geometry but James taught me how to apply them as I didn't know how to start equations, after the lesson I had more confidence starting equations. He was patient & asked for my ideas & if I wasn't sure, he was able to work me through solving the question. I felt comfortable & think his style of teaching through Skype was effective (I wasn't sure it would work prior to the session but it proved to be very effective). Great tutor & tutorial!"

James, has helped my sons confidence and strengthened their skill set considerably in both Year 9 and Year 12 (Lvl 2 NCEA) maths and physics. I strongly recommend him as a tutor, who relates well to students, putting in xtra effort to get good results.
