James Astrop MBA BSc(hons) MRSc

I have a degree in chemistry and  I am a passionate scientist. After nearly 2 decades of working in  the pharmaceutical and healthcare businesses in London my family and I decided to return to North Wales.  Since completing my teacher training I have made a commitment to improving the academic achievements of individual children by providing one-to-one tuition, study groups and holiday revision classes. I feel strongly that the education provided by the state in Wales is 1st class, however individual children need individual support that one cannot give as a teacher teaching up to 30 pupils at a time.


I have worked, trained and volunteered at a number  of schools in Conwy County, including Eirias High,  Porth-Y-Felin  and Gogarth.   I am familiar with the teaching, syllabi and examinations used at schools in the area, as well as having a detailed working knowledge of the National Curriculum for Science in Wales.  I am a member of the  Royal Society of Chemistry and I am in the process of gaining membership of the College of Teachers and the Association of Part-Time Tutors. I have up-to-date CRB checks and hold public liability insurance. I believe very strongly in providing a safe learning environment, to this end with one-to-one sessions parents are welcome to stay and all sessions will be recorded on audiotape. I am a qualified 1st aider and have attended specific courses provided by the North Wales Ambulance Service to administer first aid to children and young adults.
