Hi there. I'm a Computing Science teacher in Scotland.

A bit about me

My name is Jamie Balfour. I'm a Computing Science teacher near Edinburgh in Scotland. I was formerly a computer software developer and web developer in my previous professions. I continued these trades and I continue to be a software and web developer with my own development company.

I currently teach Computing/Computing Science in East Lothian, Scotland.

How I tutor differently

My tutoring portal

My tutoring portal as of January 2021

After developing a website for one of my own digital design and development company's clients which was designed for online tutoring, I decided that I could probably do the same myself.

My tutoring service differs from other services in that I give you access to a collection of online materials to support our one-to-one sessions. For a full list of features of my Portal see below.

My Tutoring Portal allows you to book a time for your lesson online, communicate with me and ensure that you have the best possible online experience.

My current fee is £30/hour and I will dedicate my time to only one pupil once a week. I can take on additional pupils at weekends and do not charge any more than my standard rate.

Where I tutor

I have recently been tutoring in Midlothian and East Lothian and continue to do so.

I am currently only doing online lessons. However my online learning portal is set up to make this experience as perfect as possible.

My Tutoring Portal

The following is a list of features currently available on my Tutoring Portal:

  • Online resource downloads
  • Online video sessions with no set up required
  • Online lesson booking
  • Access to a wealth of lesson slides
  • Useful links for all levels
  • Past paper questions organised by topic
