 Hi there! My name is James Novis, and I've been a tutor since 2016. With a BA in Ks2/Ks3 Education in English from the University of Brighton, I specialize in teaching Mathematics from primary school to GCSE, as well as training students for the 11+ exam. Having taught in a variety of schools, including Primary, Secondary, and Grammar schools.


  I understand the pressures that students face while studying. That's why I take a simple, student-centered approach that emphasizes building confidence and breaking down complex concepts. With positive reinforcement, enthusiasm, and a "no fear of failure" atmosphere, my students feel empowered to achieve their goals. Whether you need help with Shakespeare or trigonometry, I'm here to help.
