Teaching Experience:

Teaching Experience:
Since I have been a student all my life so did not get a chance to tutor. However I have experience to work with young people as a "Tutor" in the state run TRIO program in USA. This job has given me a clear understanding and significance of a good education, promoting effective learning, teaching and personal development. This first hand skill of working with children of school age has made me patient, tolerant and has also given me an ability to respond positively to special educational needs. Having this experience would definitely facilitate me to translate my knowledge better to pupils and that surely would aid them to understand the basic concepts.

I have taught the undergrads in Virginia State University, USA under the state run TRIO program

Tutoring Approach:

open to new ideas, initiator, like the tutee to solve the problem himself, but be a good guide,I believe in teaching patiently and with dedication. My approach to teaching is straightforward and begins with generating questions and curiosity within young people's minds so that they can think well.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching/tutoring is a simple one I always strive to make sure the learner understands whats he/she is being taught and if there are aspects that they find difficult I revise that particular topic over and over again until they understand and I do this using the various teaching methods and learning styles available to ne including the VAK (Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic) approach.

Once they have an understanding of the topic I don't move on until they feel comfortable and I always reasure them throughout.

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired teacher with over 30 years combined experience in further education, independent and maintained secondary schools. I am now based in a beautiful part of Norfolk, where I paint, give private tuition and run an art club.
My own work is based on observations of mans' intervention in the landscape. I work in oils, water colour, digital photography and print.
My interests in art and design are many and varied, and include, in no particular order, sculpture/ceramics (Moore, Gormley, Perry), photography (Cartier-Bresson and LaChapelle), graphic design (Brody, Bauhaus), and painting (Freud, Klimt, Giotto, Picasso).

Teaching Experience:

My first foray into teaching was in further education as a visiting lecturer in graphic design and illustration. Subsequently, I trained as a secondary school teacher and quickly became head of my first department in a boys grammar school. From there I moved into the independent sector, continuing to work successfully as head of department and head of faculty.
I have extensive experience as a senior regional moderator for GCSE examinations in art and design with a leading examinations board, being responsible for supervising the work of a team of visiting moderators in the south east of England, and for resolving disputes with schools. I do voluntary work for the National Trust, giving occasional talks to schools on symbolism in Tudor portraits.

Tutoring Approach:

Having started my career as a graphic designer I had, by necessity, to broaden my experience and skills into other two and three-dimensional media in order to become a successful teacher. My departments had outstanding results at GCSE and A-level, and many of my students went on to study at many of the principal art institutions, including Central St Martins, Chelsea, Glasgow, Edinburgh.
Teaching is about finding the unique personality of the individual and finding ways to encourage its expression. Allied to developing the imaginative and creative abilities is the need to create opportunities to build on existing technical skills and introduce new ones. The combination should be fun.

  • 11+ (secondary) (15 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (15 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (17.5 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a recent Cambridge graduate and a current teacher in a private school. I am now accepting private students for the year 2017-18 in politics.

Over 2016-17, I taught the Edexcel board for Government & Politics at AS and A2 level to six private students and GCSE English to four. I also helped several students undertake their history coursework. All achieved A*s in their final grade.

PLEASE NOTE: I no longer teach history but am more than happy to assist with coursework.

I have been accepted to Cambridge twice and can therefore assist with personal statements and interview technique. Furthermore, I have been sitting exams for the last fourteen years and am therefore well equipped to help students learn and master exam technique. I also specialize in editing and improving coursework.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach A-Level Politics and History at a private school in Ashtead two days during the week. This leaves me the rest of the week to pursue my private tutoring/teaching. I am fully trained on the latest syllabus and have been DBS (formally CRB) checked.

I have tutored for the last few years in the Surrey area, bringing several students grades' up from B/C to A and A* at A-Level. I also specialize in editing and improving coursework and dissertations and have coached several students through the Oxbridge interview process. Moreover, I have three younger siblings, and regularly help them with their work at both GCSE and A-Level standard.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor teaching methods to each individual student. I am hands-on however and like to create guides/notes for students to take with them. I prefer to teach rather than get paid to watch students work - although I will set useful exercises to do during our sessions. I am all about exam technique and strategy!

I am also used to working with students with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Personal Description:
I have been studying a Product Desin course for the last 2 years, I am now transferring to do a BA in Secondary School Mathematics, and after 2 years of that I will be a qualified and working maths teacher.
I am currently taking a gap year to prepare for my studies, this has given me the oppertunity to get hands on with my teaching, and do as much maths tutoring as possible.
Mathematics has always been a passion of mine and as my ability has progressed, I've taken the oppertunity to teach Common Entrance, GCSE and A level students to prepare them for their upcoming exams. Over my years of providing maths tuition I have gained plenty of knowledge, experience, and fulfillment in what I do.
I am happy to provide tuition over skype and I will charge less for that.
Face to face will be a lot more progressive, I'm happy to travel but depending on the distance I may charge extra to cover the cost of fuel.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching became a passion of mine from a young age, I was involved with CCF (cadet force) for five years and teaching the younger cadets became an import role for me.
Since then I have been doing teaching observation in different schools and working with children aged 5 to 11 on holiday camps.
I have been providing one to one, or group tuition since the age of 17. At first I worked as an assistant for group tuition sessions during holiday periods. Now my role in these group sessions is to give 1 or 2 students extra attention, or cover for the leading tutor if he is not there. This year I have been able to carry out plenty of 1 to 1 tuition, as an indepent tutor. Every one of my students so far have achieved the grades they where hoping for, or better. Some students where predicted as low as an E at school, and achieved A grades in there exams after doing private tuition with me. From this, I truly believe that every student deseveres as much 1 to 1 attention that they can get.

Tutoring Approach:

As an experienced tutor, I have gained a range of personal teaching methods. My first aim is to understand the level and ability of my student, and figure out exactly where and what there learning difficulties are. Every student learns in there own way, especially for a subject like mathematics and therefore it is essential for me to find out how the student is progressing and to cater to there needs.
Throughout my sessions I challange my students with questions that they are likley to see in there upcoming exam. I encourage them to identify the problem infront of them, and then use there own method to overcome it. This may be a method I have taught them, but it must be a method that works for them.
If my students have little or no understanding of a certain topic, I have plenty of pre prepared lessons, and I will be very enthussiastic to teach them something new.
I often set homework based on the topics covered in the lesson. Usually 30 mins max of practice for them to do later that evening to refresh there memory on what they have learnt.
