I am extremely patient and have good communication skills. My prior experience of working with learners with a range of individual needs allows me to adapt my approach accordingly to get good results. I can remain calm in pressure situations.
Great experience with James Medhurst, Canterbury. He took on my son Hugh for refresher lessons when he came home from Uni, just two weeks before his second test. James gave him the clarity he needed to get his confidence back and he passed with just 3 minor errors. Wish he’d found James originally. Thanks so much, would highly recommend.
Many thanks to James Medhurst for helping me pass my test FIRST time. Could never have asked for a better instructor, would definitely recommend him. Once again many thanks to James Medhurst . All the best in the future.
Having done a few lessons a few years back with an independent instructor and really not enjoying driving, I was apprehensive to get back to it which is one of the reasons why I booked an intensive course. It was simple to book and the staff were helpful by email. As for the course itself, James Medhurst was the most patient, level headed, helpful teacher I could have ever asked for. He really heard me when I was struggling with stuff and made the time and effort to understand how I best learned so he could adapt his teaching to me. This meant that at the end of my 30 hour course, I passed FIRST time. I can’t recommend James and the Pass team enough. They’ve made what could have been a really stressful experience for me, easy and relaxed. Thank you James for all your help! If you’re feeling nervous, anxious or apprehensive about driving or about doing a course- bite the bullet with James and you 100% won’t regret it.
James Medhurst is amazing at making his students feel at ease and so pleased his support helped you with the test situation. Congratulations one again on the super FIRST pass with one minor . ‘I would definitely recommend James to anyone who is looking to do an intensive driving course he made me feel so comfortable and is always making sure your confident and made me not worry so much about my test.
A big thank you to James Medhurst . I passed both theory and practical FIRST time with 0 minors.I couldn’t recommend him anymore, he made the whole experience a pleasure.He also made me feel confident and calm. He made manoeuvres feel like a simple task by making them clear and showing easy simple ways to do them.Thank you again.
