Personal Description:
I graduated from Oxford University in 2011 with a degree in Experimental Psychology, specialising in 'Educational Psychology'. I currently tutor as well as run a study skills company where I visit schools in London, teaching students how to maximise their potential through various unique learning techniques. I love teaching, and the satisfaction of helping my students reach their goals; I welcome students of all abilities and motivation types. What sets me apart from most is that as well as tutoring my students, I take the role of a mentor, to motivate, encourage and guide them towards success. I have had a lot of experience in private tuition, with a range of students benefiting from my support with 11+ exams up to Degree level. I am very lively and approachable, providing a warm environment in which to learn!

I am able to tutor:

Degree level Psychology (including help and guidance with essays/assignments/dissertations; proof-reading etc)

A-Level - Mathematics, Geography, English (Literature/Language), Psychology and Media Studies.

GCSE - most subjects including Mathematics, English, Science, History, ICT, French and Geography.

For students applying for Oxbridge, I am able to provide valuable advice on interview techniques and personal statements, as well as provide contacts to graduates from Oxford University from a range of subjects. I am also able to tutor students for entrance exams e.g. 11+.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored extensively at Primary, GCSE, A-level, and Degree level with excellent results. Examples include a student who moved up from a D in A-Level Psychology to a very high B. Another gained almost an A* in her English GCSE after being tutored by me for just a month, a huge improvement from the C/D level she was at. I am currently tutoring students ranging from 11+ common entrance exams to A-level Mathematics and Psychology degree level. I have taken part in several mentor schemes where I supported students with their academic problems in Mathematics, Science and English.I have also hosted group tuition sessions, and regularly run study skills workshops in schools around London.

Studying 'Education and Psychology' as my specialist subject during my degree has meant that I have a range of techniques that I apply to my teaching - these are based on biological/neuroscience/psychological findings in an educational context.

Tutoring Approach:

I spend a lot of time planning for sessions so that my students get the very best out of each lesson. My approach is thus very organised, with small goals set per session, as well as a long term goal to work towards. I always ensure that my lessons are engaging, and work towards building a good relationship with my students, encouraging them to ask questions without any hesitation. I adapt my approach depending on my students' learning style as this is the key to successful teaching. Past papers are also definitely a step in the right direction, as well as looking at the syllabus/specifications for the subject.

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

Graduated 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:
PIANO/KEYBOARD LESSONS AND MUSIC PRODUCTION TUTION AVAILABLE USING CUBASE!

James Colah is from London, England and is an accomplished keyboard player, producer, arranger, composer and session man with an impressive resumé in the music industry.
He began his music studies at the age of four with a classical training which progressed to a dynamic and creative flare for composition and performance, much of which is undertaken at his own south London studios.
He has composed, performed, recorded and produced music for more than 300 artists of various genres with the philosophy, "As long as you have a germ of a melody which you can hum, I can develop it into something which is sure to please."
His achievements and experience span many diverse areas of the music business including being signed to CBS ( Sony / BMG Records ) with his two identical triplet brothers at an early age, resulting in a European tour. He has also toured with many other high profile acts including supporting, 'Tears For Fears' in America and Canada and the classic soul band, 'The Foundations' throughout Europe. He did two British tours with `Frazier Chorus` (signed to Virgin Records) did a British tour with cult progressive rock band `Pendragon.`
James co-wrote and performed the title music for the BBC`s, `Terry Wogan`s Friday Night Show` and was featured in the prestigious, ` Keyboard Player ` magazine.
He has also worked for production companies in the media and national corporations including other projects for the BBC in the UK.
In a three decade career to date, he has worked as a musical director or session man with a range of high profile international artists which include : Edwin Starr, Ballet Rambert Dance Company, Virgin Records, Sheena Easton, Haysi Fantaysi, Pendragon and EMI.
James continues to maintain his standard of excellence by developing as a musician/composer/producer and has recently steered his talents into the genre of ` Smooth Jazz `.
He's currently working on his first solo smooth jazz album release under the name of 'The James Colah Project' and to date has released eight highly successful singles:
Come with me - The James Colah Project

Better Days - The James Colah Project
Ocean Tide - The Parlett-Colah Project
Moment in Time - The Parlett-Colah Project
Blissful - The Parlett-Colah Project
Luna Stars - The Bobi-Colah Project
His smooth jazz music has enjoyed rave reviews and is on the playlists of over 100 international radio stations around the world including Jimi King's Sky.fm Show and The JazzNet247.com Project for whom he has been a featured artist and which also resulted in him doing radio interviews jingle production and voice-over id's.
In April 2012, James was invited to perform as a special guest at Spaghettini's, Seal Beach, CA, USA.
James was honoured by winning the 2011 Coffee Talk Jazz Radio - International Songwriter Award

Teaching Experience:

36 Years of Piano/keyboard teaching including 2 years part time teaching 'Keyboard Skills' at Clapham Manor Primary School in South West London.

Music production lessons using Cubase. James will teach you how to use Cubase to create a finished production that you can release. James has a fully equipped recording studio with 36 years experience and many hit records have been recorded in his studio.

Tutoring Approach:

As a trained classical piano player with 36 years as a professional musician, James has developed a highly original and fun way of teaching his pupils. His method is not based on reading music or classical music study per se but rather unlocking the creative soul within the pupil, encouraging improvisation and composition. However, learning proper fingering and technique is also very important. Due to his unique teaching method, beginners are very welcome and results will be seen very quickly.

Personal Description:
Native French speaker from a town near Paris, I am a student at Oxford Brookes University in International Publishing. I am 22 years old, sociable and really patient. I aim to help people and share the knowledge I have simply. I am considerate and concerned with my work: I will offer you serious tuitions of good quality.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a personal tutor in France for many years in different subjects such as French or Mathematics. I mainly taught children between 8 and 14, but I am able to teach at any level. I also lived with an Australian woman for a year in France and helped her with her oral French on a daily basis.

During my undergraduate degree, I took a one-year module of French as foreign language, so I have academic knowledge of how to apprehend teaching to a non-native speaker.

Tutoring Approach:

The approach to teaching is variable according to the age of the learner and his aim. Speaking is very important to gain confidence and realise that you can be understood without been completely fluent. With young learners, game is probably the most efficient way to teach. Variable supports (radio, newspapers, film, music, literature...) are keys to master every aspect to the language.
