Personal Description:
I am married with two young children. I enjoy all sports and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I am Head of Chemistry at a large 14-18 Leicestershire Upper School. I have taught at this school for 20 years. I teach GCSE and A-Level Chemistry. I have about 18 years tutoring experience with much success. As well as teaching AQA A-level and GCSE Chemistry, I have tutored OCR, Salters and EDEXCEL. Indeed, one of my private students achieved 100% in an A-level Chemistry module last year and this year another student achieved 100% in an AQA GCSE Chemistry module. My students consistently achieve over 90% in examinations.
I do tutor all abilities and all my students reach their potential and beyond.
I am Principal Examiner for IGCSE Chemistry (Foundation) for Cambridge International Examinations. I also set GCSE Chemistry Questions and check question papers before they are sat.
Recently, I have been tutoring students in preparation for the Chemistry component of the GAMSAT Examination - used as a route into medicine by some students.
I also use Skype and email for online tutoring. Recently I have been tutoring a student using Skype. This has proved very successful and means that I can now offer tuition to students without any travelling involved or who live just too far away from me to travel. If you would like to try this as an option please get in touch with me. I can definitely recommend tutoring by Skype - try it if you live too far to travel.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the key to excellent examination results is confidence in being able to tackle the questions set. I, therefore, focus on passed papers alongside the teaching of the theory. I expect the students to ask about parts they do not understand and build on this whilst building up their understanding and knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am an honours graduate of computer science and electronics. I spent 17 years in corporate management before becoming self employed as, among other things, a freelance lecturer. I am a professional life coach and tutor for enjoyment.

Please note, I will generally add a call out fee to the tuition fee shown, which goes some way to covering petrol and time in getting to you and home again. This is usually £6 or less - I can confirm the final figure with you when I know approximately where you are.

Teaching Experience:

I taught freelance for Bedford College for 4 years, and have been tutoring for 9 years. I have qualifications in adult teaching, and my coaching qualification also helps a lot.

Tutoring Approach:

Effective tutoring is a wonderful opportunity because I can tailor what I do very specifically for the student I'm working with, and that's as much about their personality and stress levels as it is about the material we're working with. I believe in teaching understanding rather than isolated rules, it builds confidence and security and does not rely on memory. My sessions are as relaxed and fun-filled as I can possibly make them without sacrificing the learning task before us.

Personal Description:
As a motivated, organized and dynamic individual, I feel I can bring so much to the teaching profession. From a very young age I had an interest in computers and Teaching, and a wonder of how they worked. These fascinations lead me to pursue a bachelor's degree in computing, and then I continue to excel in Technology and did my Masters in Information Technology. Then along with my teaching job, I feel that I had developed deep interest in Web Technologies so I did my masters in Computer Applications.
I first realized I would like to become a teacher at secondary school so I continued my career as a teacher in ICT for about 4 years in various schools and really enjoyed working with all key stages. I have got versatile experience of teaching Physics and basic sciences to GCSE students as well. I had a good rapport with my Head Teachers and this has influenced me greatly to pursue a career in teaching.
I believe in teaching with live resources , practical activities , demonstrations , full theory support and assessing my student's honestly so see how my teaching is going on and do I need to make any changes in session plans to make it more innovative. I am a person full of enthusiasm and knowledge.
I believe teaching is not simply only to get students a job -- although this is part of the material equation -- it is about providing students with a set of conceptual tools that can be, and ultimately will be, used in a variety of disparate contexts. It is in other words, about inspiring students to think -- in- and out-side of the classroom.

Teaching Experience:

I got 4 years of Overseas Teaching experience as an ICT Teacher . I have taught Computer Science , Web Technologies and Information Technology in various Secondary schools. I am well versed in English and have done my Bachelors in First Division and my Double Post Graduation in Computer Applications and Information Technology with distinction.
I have achieved Level 3 in Preparing to Teach in Life Long Learning sector (PTLLS) from Filton College , Bristol. I have achieved certification in Web Professionals and achieved ISTQB Certified Tester status as well .
I have more than 5 years of working experience in Retail and Customer services which has helped me to strengthen my communication skills, problem solving skills , experience of working in a fast paced atmosphere with a knowledge of operations , cash handling , audit operations , participating in various discussions in the company at partner level.
My Recent Tutoring students includes students from Winterbourne Academy , City of Bristol College , Filton college and Bradley Stoke Community School and mentoring overseas software testing projects online.

Tutoring Approach:

I am able to motivate my students by using creative and inspirational methods of teaching.
I have great sense of humour which reduces barriers and lightens the atmosphere especially during heavy periods. An ability to make your students laugh will carry you far and gain you more respect. It also increases our confidence level and ease off any nerves in students and as a result students feel more engaged in the lessons and I get a good response which motivates me more to explore more with my learner.

I always prefer to do detail research for my students , their preferred learning styles and any barriers if they have.
I know my students can be visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learners. I have a dept at creating presentation styles for all three. My body language is my main communicator and I keep it positive at all times.
I know that the aggression, negative attitudes and behaviours that i see in some of your students have a root cause. I know that they are really scared young people who have come through some bad experiences in life. This keeps me calm and in control of me, of them and the situation.
I know that no one is more important in the world than anyone else. I know that everyone has a place in the world. I respect my peers and my students. Having that respect for others gets you the respect back from others.
I know that you can change a young person's life by helping them to realise their potential, helping them to grow, helping them to find their talents, skills and abilities.
I am passionate about what I do. Teaching young people is my true vocation in life. My purpose in life is to make a difference.

Personal Description:
I was born in Germany to British parents and lived there for 8 years before coming over to the UK to live. I also spent a total of 2 further years over there in Southern and Northern Germany after my A Levels and during my undergraduate degree to further my knowledge, working for OSRAM GmbH and studying at the Freie Universitšt Berlin.

Teaching Experience:

I graduated with a degree in German and Drama, with First Class Honours, in July 2010, from Queen Mary, University of London and have just completed a PGCE (Secondary) in Modern Foreign Languages (German with French), at the Institute of Education, University of London, also gaining QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) from the GTCE (General Teaching Council for England).

I am familiar with the National Curriculum at the Secondary level for Key Stages 3/4/5 - Year 7 through to Year 13, and will tailor tuition to suit individual needs, allowing for development in German language skills, as well as preparation for public examinations.

Personal Description:
I did nothing but one-to-one private biology tuition, based in Oxford, for 24 years and was widely regarded as 'Oxford's Premier Biology Tutor'. I have now moved away from Oxford and have been offering my services online only, nationally and worldwide, for the past three years via the medium of Skype and 'Scribblar' - an interactive online whiteboard that is better than face-to-face tuition as there is zero travelling and waiting time and cost and it is more intimate and concentrated than 'in-person' tuition. I charge £60 per hour normally but offer a £10 per hour discount for tuition before 3 pm on weekdays.

Teaching Experience:

27 years (the last three totally online) of one-to-one tuition in A-level, IB and GCSE biology.

Tutoring Approach:

Stick to the specification. Do ALL the past paper questions and go through them with the mark schemes. Take the exam. and get on with your life.

I like to work in a very methodical and structured fashion and not confuse effective work with hard work. The students who say at the end "yes, I learned biology - but, better still I learned how to study" are the ones with whom I know I have really succeeded.

Apart from an internet connection all that you need for tutorials is a thin A4 ring binder with a copy of the specification punched and put into the front and some colored dividers in the back. If you are a retake student I ask you to highlight the specification (in yellow with solid highlighter if you are quite happy with the content; dotted highlighter if you are a bit unhappy with it and no highlighter if you have not done it or have forgotten it). This will tell me where to start and I can estimate to within an hour or so how many lessons will be needed to 'reteach' the syllabus. Effectively I write a textbook for you and give you notes (to be filed in the colored dividers) via e-mail and Scribblar (my interactive online whiteboard) to fill in any gaps in your knowledge. As I cover the specification I highlight my copy in pink so that I can monitor progress. I have CDs of questions that I can post to you that you can work through - each CD is specific to one exam. board and contains not only the most recent AS/A2 papers and mark schemes but also the preceding many years of papers for that board, chopped up into topic headings. So, for example, it will take an hour to 'cover' The Heart and then I'll give you the questions specifically on the heart on that board to do before the next tutorial. It is all very straightforward and actually rather less hard work than doing it in a slapdash, non-systematic fashion. The study skills that you will learn will stand you in good stead throughout life.

I can also advise on coursework/practicals.

Please note that I ONLY tutor online nowadays.

Personal Description:
I am a Chinese Student from University of Leicester. My major is Financial and Economic, but I have been learned Guzheng -Traditional Chinese Instrument 10 years and obtain the certification of 10 levels. Guzheng is a plucked, half-tube zither with movable bridges and 21 strings, and has a large resonant cavity made from wutong wood. The performer is able to differentiate between stronger melodic lines and softer accompaniment patterns by using finger plectra on the fingers of her right hand. This can also be used to give effective dynamic contrasts.

Teaching Experience:

Since I obtained some certification in the filed, and taken part in the International Idol for the first prize.
Since I have taught the Guzheng class in half years in China.

Tutoring Approach:

The students need come to my house, i will be teaching face to face.
i will teach the fingering and simple music to practice.

Personal Description:
I am currently partaking in a gap year. I am a hard working and motivated person that has a lot of experience working with children in both schools and on holidays camps. I have a very calm nature and a lot of patience. I pride myself in being able to communicate well with all individuals, as well as being very creative. I am constantly looking of new ways to teach, and to learn myself.

Teaching Experience:

In recent months I completed my A Levels. For AS I recoieved an A in geography. Then for A2 an A* in business, A in religious studies and B in psychology. I have previously tutored other young children aged 10 and 15 in both English and Geography. I have also assisted to teach religious studies (philosophy and ethics) to GCSE and A Level students. I have a natural flare for teaching and working well with children. Due to just finishing both A Levels and GCSE's in recent years, I am very experienced in the current system and how to get th best marks.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a calm but disciplined method. I try to use creative ways to help teach different topics to make hem more memorable. I try to focus on repeating the important aspects of the course, along with a lot of exam question practice in maximise success. I understand the importance of repeating information and covering all potential questions to be fully prepared for exams.

I use a lot of visual techniques and formats when teaching as I believe this is one of the best methods when learning a subject. Especially a combination of images, coloured texts and videos.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced journalist and academic tutor. I have spent hundreds of hours of teaching in classes and I have an outstanding ability to make even the most complicated concept understandable, due to my professional experience in the Media . I am proficient in producing various types of texts, from academic essays to fiction and blog content and I have tons of experience in producing them, both in Greek and in English.

Academically, I have two masters degrees from two of the most prestigious institutions in the U.K. The fields of my studies are Politics (specifically, political theory and constitutional design) and EU Politics. I graduated both M.Sc.s with distinction and particularly, my dissertations were examples of academic research of the highest standards and quality.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience in teaching, acquired during my academic career but also during the early stages of my professional career, when I used to work as a teaching assistant of various subjects, including English as a foreign language in Greece, Politics and EU Politics. I have worked with students of s undergraduate and graduate level, but also adult professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I see teaching and especially tutoring as a means of communicating something that is known and familiar to me, to another person. In order to be clear and concise, I try to asses what the individual knows about the issue that we are about to talk about and then I try give my teaching a structure of sections and subsections, in which I try to cover as much information as possible in the minimum possible time.

My experience in journalism has taught me that I have to start from the bare minimum, the essentials of the concept I am about to explain and then build up by adding extra information, giving examples, making historical comparisons and giving the context. Simultaneously, I am trying to asses whether my listener has understood and is at ease with what I have already covered.
