Personal Description:
I am a post graduate student at Newcastle University, studying Subsea Engineering and management.

I have a calm look and I am very friendly, I can come down to any level to explain any topic in Mathematics to any student.

I see challenges as opportunities to conquer and become stronger, I try to explain to most students that once they get past any difficulty its conquered for life and it cant control them anymore.

I smile a lot and I believe any student will be at home with me, I believe learning is faster in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Personal Description:
Master Degree in Applied Mathematics at University of Cambridge (Part III Tripos), focus: Theoretical Physics.

BSc Mathematics and Physics at University College London (UCL). Received 1st-Class Honours over all years.

Graduated 43/45 points in International Baccalaureate (IB) with 7s in (HL) Mathematics, Physics, Economics, (SL) Geography and English. Received 7 A* 1A 1B in IGCSE including above subjects.

4+ years of experience in University/Secondary (especially in A-levels) tutoring. Always highly recognised for excellent teaching and enjoyable lessons!

Teaching Experience:

4+ years of Tutoring experience on IB (International Baccalaureate) and A-level (HL) Mathematics and Physics. Have a vast bank of exercise problems and Past Papers for training. Have been highly known for excellent teaching, being clear and rigorous at appropriate levels.

Also I can provide insight if you are thinking of pursuing Mathematics or Physics in University, from "what is maths like in Uni?", to advices in different schools, how to apply and write personal statement, etc.

Tutoring Approach:

Most likely will conduct tutoring in a classroom in University Campus, unless specifically request otherwise. This gives easy access to whiteboard for clearer teaching.

Training in Maths and Physics requires a clear, solid, understanding of the key concepts and rigorous logic. The best approach towards Maths and Physics is to allow tutees to voice any possible doubts towards the subject and then clarify them while making it more solid. After that, consistent practice with real life problems and Past Paper questions, under guidance, will enable tutees to fully achieve their potential, ideally.

Finally, people achieve their best if they find something interesting. All my students so far have always find my teaching fun and enjoyable, making learning much more easy and effective! I believe this is the key to continued learning to maximise one's potentials.

- Interactive approach, clarifying doubts and questions towards subjects
- Able to phrase concepts and theories in clear and fun ways
- Work on past papers questions
- Tips and Advice for exams
- Solid training preparing skills that applies to any subject

Personal Description:
I am an Italian engineer who lives in London. I am currently working as an actor which is my passion but I want to make proper use of my solid background in engineering and my experience as a student in many different institutions around Europe by giving private tutorials to students. I am a very determined and ambitious person and I believe that many things can be achieved with strong will and the right tactics. As you can see from my CV which follows, I successfully studied in Iceland, Norway and England. I studied and worked with people from all over the world and with the most different cultural backgrounds. I myself am very interested and respectful of cultural differences and I am an expert traveller: I travelled extensively through Europe, Africa, India and Japan. What's more I have a degree in acting (2.1) from a very well reputed English academy in Birmingham (Birmingham School of Acting). I can speak English fluently and I have got a very good grasp of the language (in drama school we studied pronunciation for 3 years) and a very rich and flexible vocabulary. I enjoy staying with people and I like challenges. I take my responsibilities very seriously and I aspire to create a healthy working environment where the prime goal is the students' benefit.

Teaching Experience:

- Since I`ve been in London I have taught Italian to an English couple who have travelled to Italy many times, are really fond of the culture but have never got down to learning the language. I`ve also taught a Japanese woman who lives in the City and has working relationships with Italy. References available on request.

Moreover, I have tutored a 17 year old student form East Dulwich to prepare for and successfully pass his A-Level Maths exams. Reference available on request.

- In 2008 I worked as a teaching assistant in a kindergarten in Reykjavk for 8 months. This kindergarten had a special program of integration between kids with special needs (especially hearing impaired ones) and kids with no special requirements, which showed to be very successful. Besides assisting the teachers in taking care of the children daily, I was responsible of having a short weekly session to introduce children to English as a foreign language through playing and singing, which turned out to be very appreciated and great fun.

February - September 2008 Reykjavk, Iceland.
Teaching Assistant at the kindergarten "Slborg".

- During my years at university I continuously gave private tutorials of Maths and Physics to students of all ages from primary school to university level.

September 2000 - Fall 2007 Bologna, Italy.
Tutor of Maths, Physics and English to students from elementary school, high school and university.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is, without any doubt, one of the most important jobs ever. This might sound a cliche but it is what I really think. With almost 30 years spent as a student to gain two university degrees, I have encountered teachers form all over the world and experienced the most different teaching methods. A teacher can make the difference in a persons life, in a good or in a bad way. A good teacher can be a source of inspiration and can make you love a subject that you would have never imagined you could like otherwise. When teaching the student's benefit is the prime goal, this means that the teacher has to be able to understand what the student needs to access a specific subject, understand it, retain the information and be able to reuse it proactively whenever it is required of him. Since, as a private tutor, I work one on one with a student, I aim at creating a healthy and effective relation where the student feels comfortable to express what he/she doesn't understand and he/she can develop a positive attitude towards learning the subject under examination. Every student is unique, therefore the method used for each student is different. I plan to have a first session where I can assess what it is required of me and whether I am able to constructively interact with the student and then build a teaching program from that. I will commit to plan every session at home and come prepared to teach what is needed and I will expect that the student commits to doing his/her best to do his/her reading and homework.

Personal Description:
Law graduate from Swansea University, I specialise in, A-level law, level 3 Ilex, Sociology of Law, Human Rights, International Law, Anti Social Behaviour and Criminal Evidence. I also teach Maths and English up to GCSE level at a reputable FE college. I hold a PGCE in post-compulsory education and training and am also studying towards a Masters degree in Education.

I travel frequently between Bridgend and Cardiff.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Law, Maths and English at a Further Education College since January 2012. I also have experience teaching English and Maths within the primary sector.


I plan, create and teach lessons around the syllabus set out by the exam board, producing lesson plans, booklets, worksheets and slideshows, using modern technology as a fundamental teaching aid.

As a private tutor I have provided additional support to struggling learners. This tuition has allowed me to teach on a one-to-one basis, to learners aged 24 - 50. I have assisted these individuals by explaining course content, producing hand-outs, providing quick responses to questions sent via email, going through the syllabus/exam requirements/mark schemes, providing long term lesson planning and providing positive support to those who are obviously anxious. As a private tutor I have taught contract law, client carer and Civil Litigation at level 3 ILEX. I have also tutored tort and human rights at level 6 degree. I keep up to date with developments within law and provide learners with the skills to do likewise. During this period of time I worked with a number of students who had both mental and physical difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

Relating to the student is key, as a relatively young teacher myself this is something I practice. Student participation is the main focus point of my teaching method, I act to facilitate and guide learning rather than spoon feed knowledge.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from Oxford University (Christ Church) with a BA (Hons) in History of Art, and am now reading for an MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute. Aside from studying I am learning Italian, enjoy playing piano and keeping up to date with current exhibitions, plays and concerts. I travel as widely as possible and enjoy enriching my academic work with the unique experiences and case studies such travel may afford.

Teaching Experience:

Since August this year I have been tutoring a number of clients in London at KS3 and GCSE level, in English, Sciences and Mathematics.
Additionally, during my A Level year I tutored of GCSE students, gaining a 100% A -C pass rate.

Tutoring Approach:

Having attended some of the most academically intensive institutions in the country, I am well suited to provide academic support and guidance to those wishing to improve their achievement, from primary to degree level.
I believe that the role of a private tutor is to create a tailor made, interactive and stimulating environment in order to help students grow and explore within their subject. I believe instilling confidence is key to this approach - I am a patient, friendly and approachable tutor and work hard to encourage an atmosphere in which honest discussion and a lack of self consciousness when learning are paramount. I provide support for all aspects of learning, from discussing homework to improving core skills.

I am familiar with exam board requirements for each subject, and as a tutor work towards success in exams, but also towards a greater enrichment above and beyond curricula.

Personal Description:
I am a secondary school maths teacher in London, having obtained an MEng in Civil Engineering from Cambridge University, followed by a PGCE at Exeter University. I enjoy teaching students of all levels and demonstrating how maths can be a challenging and exciting subject, with many applications.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach a wide range of students, from year 7 to year 13 further mathematics A level students. I have experience teaching some students who struggle with mathematical concepts, including at GCSE level, as well as teaching exceptionally gifted students who are in need of a challenge.

As part of my teaching, I am also involved in producing and marking 11+ maths entrance exams for my school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that there is more to gain in mathematics than running through past papers and I therefore have a range of resources from my teaching that help to develop a better understanding of the subject and apply it in interesting ways. That being said, I also realise the importance of the exams facing students and I believe a mix of the two is important.

The approach varies with the purpose of the tutoring, whether it is preparation for exams or wanting to be stretched in the subject and I am happy to adapt to find a style that fits the tutee.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of modern languages who combines bringing up a family with teaching French. I developed my love for languages from an early age. Coming from a bilingual home background I appreciate how language learning is an integral part of a child's development. My experience training in French Immersion education in Alberta, Canada has also added to my understanding of language acquisition and language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified French teacher with over fifteen years teaching experience. I have taught MFL in both primary and secondary schools from Early Years/Foundation Stage to GCSE level and beyond. I have run after school French clubs for primary school children and have also taught French to adults in Adult-Ed evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a distinctive approach to language teaching which strives to develop the confidence and creative skills of language learners in the four key areas of language learning by employing a variety of teaching strategies depending on the age and preferred learning style of each student.
Firstly I try to get to know my students, and establish what they already know and can do in the target language.
Then we build on their strengths while at the same time identifying areas of weakness that need to be worked on.
Study is organised taking into consideration the aims of the student and the intended length of study. I provide homework at the end of each lesson with follow-up advice and guidance on each piece of work. Preparation for examinations is systematic, concentrating on topics and language tasks specific to examination requirements.
Above all I endeavour to impart to my students a life-long love for language learning.

Thirdly, I already have been a personal tutor for teaching Mandarin in the UK for one year in my university.
Finally, I am a tutor in Photography Club of my university union to teach photography knowledge for casual leaner.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, for maths, I will combine my methods with the different personal condition to help people, especially children, understand and remember some concepts. I would like to encourage them to find alternative ways to solve problems.
Secondly, for language, I have a complete progress for teaching Mandarin for people from beginners. I am very kind, helpful, inspiring and patient. ^_^
In addition, I am pleasure to come to students' home and welcome to my house to have a tutorial. ^_^
