Personal Description:
Hi,

As a mother of two and in my career experience so far, I have learned to be patient, supportive and encouraging with children, young people and inexperienced, unconfident adults. I'm a warm, approachable person with a calm, unflappable demeanour and a good sense of humour. I have a BA (Hons) degree in English and Media and Communications Studies and an up-to-date DBS (CRB) check.

After over 10 years of working in television as a script editor, script reader and occasional writer, I moved onto work in schools, my most recent job being in a mixed secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant. My creative background means I have a strong emphasis on reading, writing and communication skills. While working at the BBC (EastEnders) in 2005, I was made redundant, and my husband and I decided to turn a negative experience into a positive one so we spent about six months travelling to places including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and India. We returned home when I became pregnant with our first daughter. For about two years I freelanced from home, writing and editing for a couple of travel websites and reading and reporting on scripts for an independent TV company.

Once I became a mother myself, my priorities changed and I gave up my television career to work with young people - something I find rewarding, challenging and inspiring on a daily basis. I feel great satisfaction in working with children and helping them to achieve all that they can be - I enjoy their company and find their enquiring minds and personal growth and development fascinating. Of course I work very well with adults too and currently tutor two writers; one published in Europe, the other an inspiring novelist.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students ranging from Year 3 to 11+ preparation, from pre-GCSE and GCSE English support to A level Film and Media Studies. Some of my students have additional education needs relating to dyslexia and autism. I have successfully helped GCSE and A Level students to gain the grades they needed to develop their education further. My previous A Level students are now enjoying their university courses and my GCSE students are now studying A Levels and Further Education courses, as per their target. I also tutor adults, mostly in creative writing, and international students, in learning to speak and understand English.

At the moment I am teaching students from Year 3 through to A level stage, as well as two adults for creative writing. I am also teaching English to two French teenagers who are visiting for a week with their family, for the sole purpose of receiving English tuition.

I have worked and volunteered at five schools now, including one primary school and one first school. Most of my school experience has been working for the Support department, focusing on children with Special Educational Needs. Some of the pupils have behavioural issues or physical disabilities, but most of them have learning difficulties such as dyslexia, ADHD and autism. I worked with these children within the mainstream classroom environment, offering them encouragement and support and helping them to understand the teachers' instructions. I also occasionally worked on a one-to-one basis with them away from the classroom, helping them to focus without any distractions.
At the primary school, I supported Year 2 and Year 3 children with reading and DT. This was done on either a one-to-one basis, or in small groups. Currently, I volunteer once a week in a Reception class, where I help children with their reading.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a calm, supportive approach and begin with assessing the student to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie. Then I tailor their sessions accordingly. I break up the sessions into different segments using fun activities where appropriate to help with their learning process. I believe that children should find learning stimulating and interactive, and not feel that they are just being 'talked at'. I am open to different types of teaching, and particularly with students who need extra support, I like to try to think 'outside of the box'.

Personal Description:
I am 27 years old male from India. I did Engineering from Delhi University and then pursued MBA from Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow. I am a Math enthusiast right from my childhood days and had scored 99% in my secondary exam. I am going to be here in London for quite some time for an assignment from my firm and, in the mean time, would like to carry on with my two passions, i.e., teaching and mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching mathematics as a part-time job for last 7 years. I have taken classes for individual students as well as for group of students with levels spreading across primary to secondary classes to preparing students for entrance exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Mathematical understanding influences decision making in all areas of life-private, social, and civil. Mathematics education is a key to increasing the post-school and citizenship opportunities of young people, but today, as in the past, many students struggle with mathematics and become disaffected as they continually encounter obstacles to engagement. I believe if I could make students relate the concepts to real-life scenarios and encourage them to apply their minds they will learn the most. So, the three key principles at work here are:
a) Relating to reality - Increasing engagement
b) Learning by doing
c) Encouragement and Motivation

Personal Description:
I am a college student studying Medical Science in central London.

Teaching Experience:

I have had and currently have many students. One of my students was doing maths GCSE and needed to pass his Maths urgently. Even though he didn't have an interest in the subject, we were able to work together in a short period of time to achieve a good enough grade. I also have 2 other students that learn Turkish from scratch. Their father is Turkish and so speaks Turkish but their mother doesn't speak Turkish so it was very tricky for them to pick up the language. Now they can say many things in Turkish and can recite the Turkish alphabet, read Turkish, write in Turkish and speak good enough Turkish to get them around in turkey despite only being 7 and 9 years of age. I have had a further 3 students that I taught English, Maths and Science along with entrance exams into secondary school such as Non Verbal Reasoning and Verbal Reasoning. All of my students have had a lot of success in their education and had they needed me further would have definitely asked to be tutored by me again.

Tutoring Approach:

I would prefer if students were not put under pressure whilst learning (especially younger children!) but can be strict where necessary. It's often easier teaching someone when the atmosphere is relaxed and when the child is not under any pressure but then again different students work well in different atmospheres. Obviously teaching methods can be discused with parents and I will be happy to conform to any requirements that are needed of me.

I also believe that teaching requires for tutors to cater for each individual depending on their needs. Whether they are visual, auditorial, or oral learners..

I am very good with building a good relationship with students to make them feel at ease and help them learn easier. I am exceptionally good with communicating with small children but at the same time can talk to older students such as GCSE students as if they were an adult. This helps them learn in a more smooth and effective way as they enjoy the time spent with their tutor.

I am a 31 year old, London based teacher who has recently returned from living and teaching overseas. I love teaching and have the CELTA qualification, as well as six years experience. I am flexible with hours and will charge half price if you can find a friend to join you!

Teaching Experience:

Six years.

IELTS, CAE, FCE

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer not to lecture students and instead put the focus on them, using what they already know in order to help them develop understanding by themselves. In the EFL world this is known as 'guided discovery'. Experience has shown me that this is a highly effective way of learning.

I like to be as practical as possible when teaching, meaning that I always put language into context and prefer to demonstrate rather than lecture.

I am friendly and patient, but I am also serious about the job and aim to do everything possible to develop my students' ability.

Personal Description:
I am a current Undergraduate student at 'St Bartholomew's and The Royal London Hospital School Of Medicine and Dentistry' studying Medicine.
I have A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Geography, Maths and General Studies.
I have completed the UKCAT (Medical Aptitude Test) and have Grade 7 LAMDA (Drama Qualification) with Merit.

I am friendly and am familiar with a variety of techniques of learning, so will always work my hardest for the best outcome for you, or your child. I will be contactable outside of lessons.

Teaching Experience:

I do not have much teaching experience, however I am very familiar with good techniques of communication and teaching.
As an individual who has spent many years in Education, I feel I know what works well, and what does not work well and the importance of tailoring teaching styles to an individual.
I have experience of working in Special Needs Schools and are therefore confident in a range of ways of communication, which I feel is necessary within teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel lessons should be fun and relaxed, but must also follow a set agenda and cover all the topic necessary. The pupil and teacher need to feel comfortable, so that the pupil is confident to ask any questions and is not embarrassed by any difficulties they are facing.

I will ensure my lessons are fun and engaging, but throughout I will stress the importance of covering all required topics within our time slot.
