There are more ways to learn than going to University.

There are many ways to learn, and paying £30,000 to sit in a lecture hall with 200 other students 6 hours a week, for 90 weeks total may be a bit too much to swallow.

    Thanks for the links! It’s great that there are so many online rercusoes for teaching through song. My kids enjoyed the Lyrical Life Science songs when they were in high school. I always loved any chance to add a teaching song to a topic.

Client Testimonials

David Ardley- triathlete
I had the pleasure (I think !) of working with James for a year or so focused on getting my Triathlon times down. Its amazing what was achieved in the space of an hour before work. What stood out for me is the constant variation of exercises and his ability to set the difficulties levels just right. His sense of humour and competitive spirit always helped when my energy levels were not quite there. I can attribute his structured training to my eventual success competing in the World Triathlon championships (age group) in Hamburg.
