Dr Duncan James

I like to focus on my writing. So, my (this) website is simply a series of links to pages hosted on other sites. I spend minutes a year on my website so that everything else I do can be as professional as possible! If you have any questions you are welcome to email me on drduncanjames@gmail.com but it can take a while for me to reply as I can go a few days (or even weeks sometimes) without checking my inbox.

The following “wall of text” is my email signature. If you have any questions you are welcome to ask. I am currently moving some books to Amazon from other platforms so certain titles are unavailable for a few weeks.
I have an author page on Amazon with links to the books I have written (on these and other country’s Amazon sites).
From my author page you can find my Nature Travel Guides about Costa Rica, New Zealand, Tasmania, Britain, Scandinavia, Estonia, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. Some other countries are included as free bonus material within certain books. There is also a wildlife activity book.
You can also find my three partner dance books; a general advice book and two detailed books to enable to you learn ballroom and latin dancing.
You can use the “follow” button on my Amazon author page for notifications every time I publish a new book
I have a YouTube channel which came from both my hobby of photography/videography and also my desire to share complete lessons or parts of lessons that I know my students have found useful.
There are nearly 50 complete dance lessons (up to half an hour in length) on my YouTube channel.
I share videos from my wildlife-watching trips. Some of these are short “highlight” scenes of something I particularly enjoyed seeing and others are longer vlog-type videos.
I have some short, bite-sized maths videos and I’m currently developing more on topics in my maths tutoring where I have had the most success finding innovative approaches.
To get notifications when I release new videos you can “subscribe” to me on YouTube.
I am still an active maths tutor. I can offer inspirational shorter series of tutorials, mainly in (or near) the Canford Cliffs area of Poole. I can also do online tutoring. Typically I help with study skills, can give much simpler ways to deal with “problem areas” (I find maths is way overcomplicated by many other teachers) and finally I can boost confidence (generally by simply helping the student with any difficulties so that they then obviously gain confidence because they can do it).
My tutoring website http://www.poolemathstutor.wordpress.com has more information.
Similarly, I can offer private dance lessons for couples or individuals in most partner dances.
I am an active writer (and video creator) and so fairly regularly have new things being published. I encourage you to either check every few months to see what is new and/or follow me on Amazon and subscribe on YouTube.
My current projects are: Adding to the maths videos on YouTube (and tidying up the existing ones); Writing Nature Travel Guides for Chile, North East Argentina and Parque Nacional Amboro in Bolivia; Developing a science fiction series; Developing a series of children’s fiction books based around nature and; Writing an interactive fiction book.
You can help me!
Email me and tell me you want to be one of my proofreading team who gets free copies of my books in return for reading early copies and giving me feedback.
As a small author getting book reviews can be difficult so please any book reviews on Amazon are a big help.
Tell your friends about my books.
