James found his passion for teaching and mentoring students in high school when he worked as a peer tutor during years 10- 12 to help students read and write, and scribe for HSC examinations through peer tutoring and mentoring programs. Since then, James has taught English in one-on-one and small group settings to over 600 students from more than 90 schools that span a vast array of public, private and top selective schools in NSW (click here to find out more) for over 11 years.
He has an uncanny ability to engage students and break down key concepts and complex ideas in an understandable and relatable way and has helped students to not only make dramatic improvements but find a greater appreciation of English through his unique teaching methodologies. James nurtures students to think interpretively, creatively and critically and helps students to learn effectively - bridging the gap between academic theory and practical application in both written and spoken assessments. As an educator, James takes an approachable teaching style and holds a holistic view in his teaching philosophy during lessons that enable students to dramatically accelerate their learning through his insightful tutorials and constructive feedback.
James graduated with a Bachelor of Laws with the Bachelor of Commerce as a Merit Scholar at Macquarie University and was the recipient of the Macquarie University Merit Scholarship. He is admitted as a solicitor in NSW and has worked as a lawyer and consultant at a top international professional services firm prior to founding Scholardome to pursue his passion for education.
