Personal Description:
I am a friendly, qualified and experienced tutor who is available for work in the South East London area, or to give online lessons via Skype. I am a UK National and have worked in the UK, South America and Australia with students of many different nationalities, abilities and motivations. I am happy to teach at any age or level and I believe that learning English is valuable and also interesting.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and tutoring English as a foreign language for over 6 years, both in the UK and abroad. I have experience working with a wide range of ages and levels, from children to business professionals. I am also able to help with preparation for Cambridge exams, IELTS or other examinations. I hold a CELTA qualification as well as a degree and an MA.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the personal attention tutoring allows means that the student and teacher are able to negotiate the needs, aims and pace of classes. It is vital that the tutor is patience, friendly and has a sense of humour, as well as making the student work hard!

Personal Description:
I have taught mathematics for nearly 20 years and enjoy keeping up to date with lesson delivery, maintaining a keen interest in how we learn mathematics. I a I now do some private tuition at home in addition to working in a secondary school. I am a positive forward thinking tutor and have a good sense of humour.
I am reliable and committed to my students' progress.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching full time for over 15 years with a careers worth of experience in secondary mathematics up to and including A levels.
I am currently employed to teach part time where my results are usually pleasing for my students. For instance, in 2011's performance management, 100% of students from a class surpassed their target levels significantly, including many with double and three times expected progress.
I also now teach privately for the rest of the week from my home (please view the map for location)
I have enjoyed teaching some very gifted students as well as those who find the subject quite a challenge.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach most levels of mathematics and use an intuitive approach wherever possible. It has been noted that I explain concepts quite clearly and students can be surprised at the ease with which they pick up previously difficult concepts. I

I also prepare students for exams and offer guidance on exam technique.

I use a mix of worksheets, discussion, web based work and text books. Past exam papers and examiners reports may be used for exam preparation.

Often I work to compliment a student's school mathematics, bringing them confidence and an increased ability to communicate and therefore participate in a classroom setting.

Personal Description:
I have had a range of experiences. I began my career in Secondary education, I then moved, via a period of 4 years working for an independent film and TV production company, into university education. My particular interests are the political and cultural history of Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries; Film and Television History and Historiography, the history and philosophy of history.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a University tutor in History with 20 years experience. I have also taught in sceondary education, and am currently a GCSE examiner.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is one that enables students to tackle the work themselves. I will therefore:
Suggest approaches to work;
Discuss plans and approaches for coursework assignments;
Discuss approaches to interpreting source and stimulus material;
Make students aware of other (mainly secondary) materials in the areas under investigation.

Personal Description:
I got a bachelor's degree in political sciences and a master's degree in international relations at the University of Cagliari (Italy) with 110/110 as a final grade. My studies, together with the international experience of "Erasmus" in Romania, made me discover many sides of the political mechanisms, the cultures and the economies of different countries and areas of the world.
I reckon myself as a very easygoing and motivated person, always ready to cooperate with the workmates. Enthusiastic about the life and the new experiences, always keen to improve myself specially in the relations with the others.

Teaching Experience:

From 2007, in Italy, I started to provide private lessons of different subjects to young students, then in London I have privately helped foreign people in the study of the Italian language. The teaching training course which I followed at International House has given to me, in three months, the chance to learn, improve and practice important techniques in real classes, five lessons for beginners and six for intermediate students: Both execution and planning of a lesson have been tested with good results and personal satisfaction. I can prepare different levels of lessons for groups,business classes or one-to-one, following at the same time the logic and the variety.

Tutoring Approach:

The first goal of a tutor is to help the student as much as he can. Who is learning does not have to feel under pressure or under examination, so it is important to be relaxed and to prepare a logic lesson with exercises that can help the student step by step to build a knowledge of the language. It is essential also to provide adapt material, following the variety of the activities in order to avoid the repetitions which could be boring for the student. The enthusiasm and the motivation of the tutor are absolutely the first steps to provide a good result.

  • Italian
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am an American who grew up in a small town in Illinois and went on to get a BA in Fine Art. I moved to England a few years ago and love taking my two dogs out on walks in the country side. I love making art, cooking, and hanging out at home. My artwork is primarily based in painting, and printmaking. I also like to work with mixed media and bookmaking. I have recently started to do a bit more photography that I am enjoying and combining with my other work.

Teaching Experience:

I have done private tutoring in the States as well as being a visiting artist at public schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is that everyone no matter where they want to take their art work needs to have a foundation of basic skills so that they can go on and make their work in what ever medium they choose. Art is such an exciting subject because it is truly only limited to our imagination and drive. You can do anything you want with art so that also makes it more challenging. My goal with my students is to provide encouragement, technical support, together with some art theory, and practical advise to create a comfortable and inspirational environment to learn and create.

Personal Description:
I am 24 years old and extremely passionate about Mathematics. I have just completed a teacher training course at the University of Manchester. I am currently employed as a maths lecturer. I firmly believe in the advantages of private tutoring and I have found in my seven years tutoring, that pupils respond well to me because of my age. I have a very individual approach to teaching and I have had very positive results. I provide all learner resources and tailor my lessons to the national curriculum.
Students receive reports termly, are assessed monthly and set assignments weekly. Or lessons are tailored to individual needs.
I believe in engaging my students and encouraging an individual approach to learning where a learner develops responsibility for their own learning. Despite the fact that I am very young I am highly motivated, a good role model and a very high achiever.

I have a BSc in Mathematics (2.1) from the University of Warwick. At A level I achieved grades AAAAa at A level including Mathematics and further Mathematics.

I am madly passionate about mathematics and I want to share the enjoyment I find in mathematics with young people of all ages. I was involved in a Hackney-wide scheme tutoring students in GCSE mathematics for local secondary schools. Whilst at college I set up a scheme to assist GCSE students studying mathematics which was very successful and very popular.

I love children and teenagers and working with them and I have also been a peer mentor and further education ambassador, working with young people and encouraging them to consider further education.
I am also quite willing to teach adult learners as I love mathematics and will teach it to any person of any age. I have taught for the maths equivalency exams. I am CRB checked and can provide references from teachers and tutors as well as parents of tutees to support my character.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring Approach:
I have a relaxed but focused approach to teaching and learning. My students find it very easy to relate to me, I am always available to answer a pupil`s needs and my students regularly contact me by phone, email or text with their problems. I do not have a set method of tutoring but try to adapt to the individual student`s needs. This could include developing visual aids, including e-learning, posters and colour coded learning materials to increase interest as well as audio aids.
I charge 30 an hour and I also offer group tuition. Prices are negotiable for larger groups and are usually inclusive of travel costs and other expenses.

I will travel to all tutoring locations at times that are convenient for the learners (mostly evenings and weekends).
Style/focus and pace of the lessons are fully negotiated with tutees before we commence the lessons. I recommend at least weekly lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a second year student at the University of Kent in Canterbury. I`m currently studying for a BSc in Mathematics. I also work as a Mathematics Outreach Ambassador working with primary and secondary school students, and give private instrumental and academic tuition. I am passionate about my teaching. I`m very friendly and enthusiastic and I am good at connecting with children and teenagers of all ages.

Teaching Experience:

I currently give academic tuition to a secondary school student in English and Mathematics. I work as a Mathematics Outreach Ambassador, working with primary and secondary school students, and running Mathematics workshops and masterclasses.
I also give instrumental and vocal tuition to students of a variety of ages and abilities. I hold an enhanced DBS (new version of enhanced CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and patient teacher. I have a flexible approach to tutoring, adapting to suit the students way of learning and best address their weaker areas. In my first few lessons I aim to give students tasks that they can understand and complete within the lesson, building their confidence in their abilities. This then lays the foundations to progress on to more difficult topics, and develop the students own ability and skills set, so they can begin to tackle new, unfamiliar ares of the topic themselves.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of Balliol College Oxford and have been teaching in London ever since leaving many years ago now. I live in West London with my family (although I am originally from Yorkshire) and like it here. We are all keen musicians too.

Teaching Experience:

As Head of Physics Department and then Director of Studies for two major Independent Sixth Form Colleges I have 35 years experience teaching A level Physics for many exam boards as well as examining. I wrote an A level revision guide for Penguin books called 'Masterstudies - Physics'.
I have taught mostly in small group situations but each year also teach a few individual students.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy communicating the underlying concepts in Physics and interactively building up a full picture of how the subject works for a student. I don't rely on a mathematical approach to the subject but encourage students to develop an all-round ability based on reasoned thinking as well as maths. Several students I have taught over the years have achieved 100% in A level Physics

Personal Description:
I am a mature and patient 17 year old. I am currently in my first year at Esher College studying 4 A-Levels and I live in SW London with my parents and 3 younger sisters. I intend to take a gap year after finishing my A-Levels and travel before going to university to study psychology or psychobiology. I am interested in becoming a criminal psychologist.

Teaching Experience:

I have no official teaching experience however I do unpaid tutoring with my sisters who are 10 years old. I also have many babysitting jobs so am experienced in looking after/working with younger children.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to have a good relationship with people who teach you as I have learnt from experience so I believe this will come out in how I tutor. I will guide the child as much as s/he need to reach their potential but I generally think children can always do better than they think and just need someone to help them concentrate and give them a little push in the right direction as schools do not often focus on individuals and their personal needs one-to-one.

Personal Description:
I'm a 22 year old male who currently works for the Ambulance service as an Emergency Medical Technician/Student Paramedic who is also now studying Paramedic Science at LJMU. I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2013 with a 2:1 in Physical Education. During my degree I mainly focused on health & disease of the general human population and cardiac physiology. In my final year I completed a dissertation titled "The Relationship between Heart Rate Variability and Blood Pressure and the Role of the Automatic Nervous System" in which I achieved a first. I am lucky to be in a job where I can relate the theoretical knowledge I have learnt to real life applications.

I studied Biology, Maths, Physics and Physical Education at A-Level and I am willing to teach both Biology and PE up to this standard and PE/Physiology up to BSc level. My main interest is in the human biology side of the biology curriculum. I am comfortable teaching all areas of the PE curriculum, this is my preferred subject.

I work shifts so my availability changes each week however I'm normally available for at least 3 week evenings/nights per week as well as 1 guaranteed weekend per month.

Teaching Experience:

During my time at university I completed a variety of teaching modules including both practical and theory lessons in Secondary schools. I also have experience of teaching SEN pupils.

As well my teaching placements at university I have been a multi sport coach for the last 3 years leading sport sessions to teenagers on my own. I also have experience of teaching first aid to university students for the last 3 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I appreciate that each student is different and will grasp concepts at their own pace requiring differing levels of support. I like to focus my time on areas that the pupil finds particularly challenging.

I like to try and link theory to practical as I believe this helps with a students understanding, as well as making the subject more interesting. I believe using past exam paper questions are vital to allow the pupil to experience what kind of replies the exam boards are looking for.

I am a pretty easy going kind of person who likes to make sessions fun and enjoyable as I believe this helps a student to learn. Ultimately I will try and let the student dictate each sessions as they know what works best for them.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Eva, and I would describe myself as a very warm, friendly, straight forward and patient person, with excellent communication skills. I have an incredibly strong academic record (A-Levels: English Literature-A*, Drama-A*and French-A) and a genuine love for reading, theatre, and music. I feel passionate about bringing success and confidence to those I teach, and I aim to inspire my pupils to have a real interest for the subject!

Teaching Experience:

I have regularly helped younger siblings with English homework, and given them the confidence to become braver and more vocal in the classroom. I am able to clearly explain exam and revision technique - which is often the key to improving grades.
I have previously set up a school drama club, and have led games and prepared lessons for groups of children. I enjoyed the challenge and process of this hugely, and know from verbal feedback that they did too! I hugely value the time I spent with these students and their inquisitive minds. As a result of my commitment to this club I was awarded the school's Eunice Hobbs prize for Initiative.
During my degree I was given the role as music teacher, singing teacher and pianist for one of the productions that was being put on. I enjoyed this hugely, and found the work to be incredibly satisfying. The group was made up of university students who had a huge range of musical abilities, and I feel that I was able to attend to each individual's needs by giving clear explanations and ways to think about music.

Tutoring Approach:

I graduated from Guildhall School of Music & Drama with a First Class Honours Degree, and feel that this is a wonderful foundation for tutoring. I feel passionate about helping pupils with Drama, English, or Music, and believe that I would be able to give excellent tutoring lessons. I feel very confident in one-to-one teaching scenarios, and believe I am sensitive to an individual's needs. I do not believe in "one size fits all", and am a great fan of finding out the right way and approach for everyone. Having rigorously gone through GCSEs, A-Levels and then a degree myself, I know how vital it is to feel confident in your own revision technique. I think it is also important to have a sense of fun when learning - and I believe I can bring this to the lesson!

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old post graduate from the University of Portsmouth. I gained a 2:1 in Mathematics for Finance and Management. I am currently working shift hours to travel next summer.

Teaching Experience:

Having taught younger undergraduates throughout my time at University, and also friends siblings studying for their GCSEs, I am used to working with a range of abilities that need help with Mathematics.

I have also done a lot of tennis coaching, and so I am used to working with a range of ages.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to firstly identify areas where students need the most help in subject area and change my teaching accordingly. For example, improving exam technique, identifying specific areas of knowledge to be improved upon and successful revision methods.

I have learnt that some students work best from exam practice, demonstrations or a mixture of both, and it is important for me to identify which work best for the student, to be able to help the student in the best way I can by ways of teaching, but also to prepare the appropriate materials.

I create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which students work towards a clearly defined goal.
