Dr Nicola James BSc, PhD
Welcome to my webpage. I am an expert 4-in-1 science and maths tutor, with 20 years experience of helping GCSE and advanced students with their exams. During the ongoing pandemic and climate crisis I operate as an online service only. Sessions are hosted by myself and are live, personalised and interactive. I have four years online teaching experience and a host of bespoke resources. I use Zoom with virtual paper and screen sharing. Students are sent bespoke infographics to save to their phones - to consult after the lessons.
I offer flexible tuition to suit all budgets- shown below. The live online 1-to-1 tuition service for maths and/or sciences, is offered as either regular or pay-as-you-go ad hoc sessions - from £30 per hour pro rata. If your budget is more limited, you can use the FREE self-directed learning video playlist for GCSE sciences, with the option to join a small group of students for structured, regular, live, online exam question practise sessions - £10 per hour. Small group maths sessions are also available for £10 per hour. You can also put your own groups of students together for great negotiable rates, the more students the lower the individual costs - contact me if you wish to discuss this option.

AN ORDERED COMPILATION OF HAND-PICKED, EASY-TO-FOLLOW, ENGAGING YOUTUBE VIDEOS
GCSE SCIENCE VIDEO PLAYLIST
Students can improve their science grades significantly using our FREE self-directed learning service. Students learn the knowledge base by watching a scheduled, ordered compilation of hand-picked, easy-to-follow, engaging YouTube videos. Students can play, pause and rewind the videos as many times as they like. This has a significant advantage over traditional collective teaching in the classroom, as videos can be digested by students at their own pace and according to their own preferred individual schedules.
Scheduled GCSE science video playlist- structured, live online, small group support
For students to reach their full potential and score the highest exam grades possible, they must learn how to interpret and answer real exam questions. Students can attend a 24 week, scheduled, structured, live online small group support series.
My value as a tutor with this learning strategy focusses on developing the ability of students to interpret and answer exam questions correctly, and of course, still helping with any difficulties about concepts. In this way, grades achieved in the final exams can be enhanced, while making the best use of your finances.
