Biography:

James grew up in Sydney, attending Lindfield East Public School from Kindergarten to year 6, before studying at Barker College from year 7 to year 12. It was during his time at Barker College that he developed a love for reading and writing, leading him to undertake extension units in History and English.

Seeking to further explore his passion for the Humanities, James has decided to study Arts at the University of Sydney, where he is currently majoring in English and Economics. Having immensely enjoyed his brief study of French and Mandarin during school, James hopes to have the opportunity of taking a semester abroad where he can uncover the basics of another language.

In addition to tutoring, James enjoys spending time catching up with his old friends from primary and high school and his new friends from university. He is very passionate about tennis and football, and though his attempts at piano and saxophone were mediocre at best, he nevertheless maintains a love for music. James is an avid reader who is currently reading Outside the Gates of Eden and Anna Karenina. James also loves travelling, and in particular, he is always looking forward to the times he gets to visit his family in Malaysia.
