Director, Maths Kitchen
James is one of the founders and directors of Maths Kitchen. He worked as a secondary school Maths Teacher and private tutor for twelve years before creating Maths Kitchen with Francis Malone-Lee. James and Francis' experience as teachers and tutors showed them there was a need among learners for a platform that could answer the question of 'what is the most beneficial thing for me to be studying right now?'. The site has been developed for learners who want to be successful in their Maths GCSE but just don't know where to start or how to go about it. It helps them by recognising the right level of difficulty of work for them and identifying and addressing specific knowledge gaps. It is then all about providing suitable practice with automatically marked questions and support in the form of model answers and videos lessons. A Teacher Dashboard has recently been added to the site that allows teachers to take advantage of the site's ability to automatically set personalised revision tasks and to monitor the work their students carry out.
