Personal Description:
I graduated from Cambridge University with a BA in English Literature, and then from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, graduating with a BA in acting, where I was the recipient of the Noel Coward Scholarship from 2008-2011. In July 2011 I won the Michael Bryant Award at the National Theatre, for verse speaking and Shakespeare.

When I'm not acting or tutoring I can be found in the kitchen or walking in the countryside.

CURRENT SUMMER AVAILABILITY: 5th & 8th-12th, 22nd - 31st August.

Teaching Experience:

Currently tutoring students in: 7+, 10+ & 11+ preparation (all four subjects); lower secondary SEN homework and mentoring; Key Stage 1 and 2 English and Maths.

During my gap year I spent some time as a special needs classroom assistant, working closely with a child suffering with Asperger's Syndrome. This involved facilitating the social and academic change between primary and secondary education on a one-to-one basis.

Also at this time I ran Welsh language games sessions for primary children in non-first-language schools to improve and encourage their use of the language outside of the classroom environment.

Whilst at secondary school I taught reading skills to children who had low reading-ages.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is tailored to the individual's needs; firstly finding ways of fully explaining a concept, then cementing them with useful and memorable material to build students' confidence. My main objective would be to aid the student in understanding not only the specifics of the work but also the broader aspects of it, which I believe provides a truer grounding in - and enjoyment of - a subject. By making the work useful and enjoyable, and by finding alternative and effective approaches to study, I hope that my tuition will shed new light on subjects for students.

I particularly enjoy tutoring Maths GCSE, 11+ and 13+.

Previous Students' Comments:

'Before I met Alex, as a dyslexic, I was academically unconfident and dreaded having tutors who had never really helped me before. Alex tutored me from Year 8 to 11 and she completely changed my attitude to studying, helped me develop my organisational skills and gave me a huge amount of confidence in my abilities. As I approached GCSEs she tutored me particularly in Maths where I was struggling with a D grade. Without her expert tuition I doubt I would have been able to achieve my A* in Maths.

I think Alex is an amazing tutor because she has an extraordinary talent for making it a thoroughly enjoyable experience to the extent I would genuinely look forward to our lessons. Alex was far more than a tutor to me, helping me through such formative teenage years. I consider her a friend.'

- Tally (Now studying for her A Levels)

'Alex is a truly outstanding and gifted tutor as well as a fantastic person. I have very much enjoyed being her student for over six months, and have not only learnt a lot due to her expertise and impressive knowledge but also grew to love English Literature because of the inspirational nature of her tutoring. Previously, I used to constantly struggle with my assignments since English is not my first language, however, after a few weeks of sessions with Alex my grades and confidence significantly improved. She has an ability to keep the lessons varied and interesting; always well prepared for lessons - she was kind enough to provide me with extremely useful books and personal notes. Her incredible dedication and hard working nature also deserves mentioning as she was willing to help me even in the evenings when I was panicking about coursework and the approaching exams. With Alex's assistance and firm confidence in my ability I have achieved a high A in my A-level English Literature and even a merit award in Extended English. I would enthusiastically recommend Alex to anyone who wants to succeed in their exams and learn heaps of interesting information.

Personal Description:
I am a 30 year old female graduate from the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow. I have a joint Honours degree in French and Italian (language and studies) for which I gained a 2:1. I also have a Masters in Marketing which I also obtained from the University of Strathclyde. I am currently working in the Modern Languages department of St Ninian's High School in East arendreeshire. I spent a year abroad in Lyon, France, during my fourth year of university, where I worked as an English Language Assistant in two high schools. I am extremely patient and understanding and have a lot of experience tutoring both young children and teenagers, especially in French and Italian. I am passionate about working with and helping others and find it to be a most rewarding experience and I would love to pass on my knowledge and skills, in my specialist subjects, in order to help develop the skills of the tutees I will be working with. I am a very driven, confident and enthusiastic individual and I give 100% to everything I am involved with and I am passionate about achieving results and helping others to do so also.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified French & Italian teacher in secondary education and have acquired a great amount of experience throughout my different posts and have gained great confidence in teaching the new National 4 and 5 qualifications. I also have experience teaching the Higher Course in both languages. During my fourth year of University, I worked in two high schools in Lyon, France as an English language assistant, teaching children, teenagers and young adults, from the age of nine to twenty three. I was responsible for helping them with all aspects of the language, and developing their reading, writing, listening and verbal skills by preparing and working on a number of different activities. I also taught them about British culture, history and lifestyles so as to help develop their knowledge of Britain, particularly Scotland, in general. I ensured that I worked differently with different individuals, depending on their style of learning and I took a different approach accordingly. I aimed to make my style of teaching both informative and fun so that they enjoyed learning and I believe this is something I am always successful in as many tutees I have worked with have commented on my positive and helpful way of teaching.

In my final year of high school I was involved in the 'Peer Education' programme whereby I went into five different French and Italian classes and helped those who were experiencing difficulties with the subjects. I helped particularly with grammar issues as these seemed to pose the most problems for pupils and I also helped them prepare for upcoming speaking and writing tests. I also helped pupils to understand easier ways of making the most of their French or Italian dictionary and taught them creative and simple of ways of tackling listening and reading tests. Moreover, I worked on a one to one basis with a Higher grade pupil who was experiencing problems with French and we explored different ways of making difficult areas that much easier. I was also part of the 'Paired Reading' programme where I worked with pupils aged eleven to fifteen who experienced reading difficulties. I met with three pupils for one hour each week, on an individual basis, and we would work on techniques for improving their reading ability and they would read to me. These two programmes were very gratifying, especially when I witnessed a pupil's confidence grow as their reading skills improved.

I have also tutored two family friends, both in French and Italian, with a great focus on exam preparation and the skills that they needed to do well on class tests. I also help my niece and nephew with their French, focusing greatly on the areas they find the most difficult.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a different approach to my tutoring depending on the individual I am working with. On my first session with my tutee I will find out the areas that they are experiencing the most difficulty in, and what their strengths and weaknesses are, as this will help me to develop an effective and helpful way of teaching. I prepare various worksheets, practice tests and activities which are interactive and will allow for valuable learning. I will ask the tutee what their preferred way of learning is and look at ways in which they successfully learn in other subjects and try to incorporate this in to my way of teaching. I encourage tutees to ask questions wherever necessary and to state if they wish me to try a different approach. I believe communication is the key to successful learning and I pride myself on my friendly and approachable nature and my ability to achieve results in my tuition. On the whole, I am aware that my way of teaching has to be of benefit to the tutee so I will tailor my approach to suit their wants and needs.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher for more than thirty years. I was a university lecturer and private tutor in Hungary and I continued teaching as a tutor when I came to England. I am passionate about teaching; helping pupils improve is very important to me.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I was teaching drama at different levels, as well as English literature and language. I started teaching Maths for younger children when I came to England. I also marked theses in Literature as a lecturer and advised students on writing papers in Literature. I taught several courses; for example, Essay writing, Language skills, Communication skills and Drama and Theatre. I based my drama lessons on my experiences as a Fulbright scholar at the Drama Department at the University of Oregon, USA.
I am especially enthusiastic about helping students with their essays; teaching them how to find focus and express their ideas precisely and coherently; organise and proofread their work; how to write a good introduction and conclusion.
Pupils I have taught have been admitted to Wolverhampton Girls' High School, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Chase Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient teacher. I have helped children and adults of different ages to achieve their goals. In my opinion anyone can improve; the teacher's role is essential in the process. It is my responsibility to understand individual needs and to make sure that I create the best learning environment both physically and psychologically.
I am friendly and strict at the same time.
It is very important to tailor lessons to individual needs. My main priority is to find the best way to help the student improve. Motivating them can take different forms: encouragement, gentle pressure, being more strict and so on. Every student is different; it is my responsibility to find the best approach.

Personal Description:
18/03 - Please note that on UK Tutors as both student and tutor to pay a fee before addresses can be exchanged. I have had quite a few people think that I profit from this fee but I really do not, I too have to pay a fee between 10-20.

In 2012, I completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Genetics from the University of Nottingham and in 2015, I completed my masters in Psychology. I have been an enthusiastic learner since a young age and hope that through my lessons, my students will also develop a passion and interest in the subjects I teach. I am looking to hopefully teach A-level students that require help to get a better grade. I am also happy to teach younger students.

I have taught Biology and Chemistry up to A-level standards across the most popular exam boards since graduating in 2012. As a result, I have an endless number of exam questions, worksheets and booklets to give to students from day one of teaching. I believe in learning little over a long period of time and working out a strong revision technique. Whilst, I wish all my students can achieve A/A* grades, hard work, motivation and revision are the key tools to achieve high grades, a tutor should only be a tool in your learning, not someone you rely on completely. Whilst I understand that my prices are high, I believe I am also fair. I don`t mind if students stay for longer than an hour if needed and am always happy to reply to emails for homework help.

In terms of future careers, I will be completing my PGCE in Secondary School Chemistry in the coming academic year and would like to eventually become an educational psychologist.

Since graduating in September 2015, I work as a teaching assistant in the Milton Keynes area, in particular in special needs schools, which means I am generally free after 3pm to teach students.

With regard to my CRB check, I was checked by Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 2013.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in total, over 20 students studying GCSE and A-level Biology/Chemistry/Maths on either AQA or OCR exam boards.

I teach Sunday to Thursday from 4pm to 9pm

Please note, I am happy to offer the first lesson free of charge for long term students, if it is only one lesson you need, then please make this known to me. The first hour is generally a "get to know me" session and finding out what areas the student wants to work on.

Tutoring Approach:

After teaching solidly since November 2012, I have been able to further develop my teaching skills. To begin, I start with revision techniques, worksheets and make new, very detailed, class/revision notes with my students. After developing a solid understanding, I begin with exam questions as I have been able to collect a solid amount of questions (exam and school questions). Every lesson, I print out worksheets and notes for my students as well as give them homework. Essentially, what I offer are school lessons that are more detailed and focused than what they receive in school. Through these methods, I am able to thoroughly assess a student's abilities, increase them and hopefully better their grades. However, I stress, students must work hard themselves to achieve good grades.

Parents often ask me about discount, I am happy to discuss this for long-term students and 2 hours lessons

Personal Description:
Experienced lecturer and private tutor offering individual mathematics tuition at A level and GCSE/KS3. My teaching style is supportive and flexible, responding to the unique needs of each student. While I place a proper emphasis on exam preparation my supportive approach helps build my students' confidence in their ability to succeed.

Teaching Experience:

Lecturer and private tutor with 24 years' experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I ask students to do exercises and past paper questions, as appropriate, to aid in diagnosis. Following that, my approach is tailored to the individual, using explanation, example, practical illustration and context. I then set problems to assess progress and develop mathematical "fluency". I set a modest amount of homework to encourage my tutees to practice what they have learned.

The benefits of my approach are attested to by feedback obtained from students and parents, as listed below:-

"Excellent.Very professional and dedicated. Explains subjects in a way that puts the student at ease and therefore absorbs the information easier than being in the classroom. Have seen a great improvement in our daughters confidence in the maths subject thanks to David's tuition. Highly recommended." (Liz)

"Excellent.If you are looking for a private maths tutor I strongly recommend David. Patient,helpful and works around you. My daughter enjoys her time with David and I and is becoming more confident." (Gillian)

"I have a much clearer understanding of the subject. It has been great and well worth it. I would widely recommend it to anyone doing maths A level." (Ben)

"All of this makes perfect sense to me now." (Becky)

"I have been accepted into the course I wanted. It would not have been so without your guidance." (Matthew, A2 level)

"Excellent. Well structured, beneficial to my studies. Lessons were very clear and provided exam guidance. Always left a session with greater knowledge. Thank you very much for your tuition." (Richard, 1st year UG)

"Focussed on what I was struggling on. It's been great and you've really given me confidence that I can do all my maths exams. Thank you for all your help." (Sarah, A2 level)

Personal Description:
I am a primary school teacher who lives in Brighton. I love living in Sussex and exploring the countryside and the amazing opportunities that there are within the county.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Primary Schools for 7 years now. I have taught years 4,5 and 6 so have an enhanced understanding of the curriculum requirements for this age as well as the expectations for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
I am still in the teaching profession and have an up to date understanding of current educational change.
Last year I was a personal tutor to 4 children all of whom were Year 6 and all of whom achieved Level 4 or above in their Maths SATs paper.
I have just completed a maths specialism course at Brighton university which has really developed my understanding of misconceptions children have in mathematics. I am just about about to start a Masters in Maths Education in order to continue to enhance my understanding in this area.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in identifying what it is that is acting as a barrier to children's learning, each child is an individual so I therefore believe that they will require highly personalised learning experiences in order to help them make progress. So the tutoring experience your child will receive will be highly tailored to their needs.

I also feel strongly that learning should be meaningful and multi-sensory so I ensure that my teaching style allows the children to recognise the applications of their learning in the real world and is represented in as many different styles as possible to ensure that the learning is embedded and meaningful.

Teaching Experience:

I have a range of experience in tutoring Maths for GCSE and A level students, as well as experience in tutoring students at foundation degree level. I have in particular worked with struggling students in the past, helping them from limited understanding to gaining a great degree of confidence and enthusiasm pre-examination. I also act as a professional mentor for an undergraduate student at City University, helping to develop essential life skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very easy going and honest person, eager to make learning fun and enthusiastic about teaching. I believe it is important for my students not to just learn but to understand. I am very flexible and able to adapt my teaching style to fit the ability of my student.

I am open minded and can relate to all different types of students and able to adapt my teaching style accordingly. I realize that there are many different forms of learning, broken down more primarily into visual and auditory as such. In modern society today, our concentration spans are consistently decreasing. The approach I like to take is to be demonstrative. This allows my students to engage with the subject, use their imagination and practical thinking. In turn, the students are more enthusiastic about learning and in this way more likely to understand the concepts as opposed to going through the motions. I always do my absolute best to maximize the potential of all my students.

My vision is for my students to not feel as if studying is a chore, but something they look forward to on a daily basis.

Personal Description:
Im 18 Years old and have had over 11 years art experience, always drawing, being creative musically, achieiving an A* at art GCSE, scoring the highest possible mark out of the year. Whether your wanting to draw black and white (my forte), colouring, realism, to surrealism style, sketching, painting, inking, etc. I have done it all but as an artist you have to be quite versatile, and through this you'll find one style or way of drawing or expressing the you. As I have a passion for the Arts, I also took interest in Music Technology, which has allowed my visualistic skills to combine with audio and music. So I also teach music grades Abrsm (grade 3 below), and (drumming grades up to grade 5).

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience for arts comes from teaching friends for the past 2 years, helping with concepts and ideas, people doing GCSE's, A-level's, having many friends come to me for help and tips for A-level work. I have had enough experience to know what works and what doesn't, or is preferred. I hope to help you like I have with many of my friends and tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to learning will be asking you what you want /need to do, whether this is for GCSEs, A-level, or for other qualifications/hobbies. I will see what your strengths and weakness's are, and help you develop the areas your interested in. I will take a kind, but demanding approach so you get the best of out of each lesson/session. For qualifications I will help you also relate research ideas more methodically, and help you grow independently, and will promise to improve grades to high standard for your educational interests and reach qualification standards. I hope to help as much as possible. I will provide basic equipment, but you will need to bring own equipment, as you might have an idea what your more interested in more.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate Durham University, and have been teaching A level Psychology over the last year. I have a passion for learning, and aim to inspire others to love learning in the same way. Being a recent graduate, and a teacher in a secondary school, I can appreciate how difficult keeping up with everything that life has to offer, whilst achieving your maximum potential. As a result, I am very excited to offer students the opportunity to gain extra help, and keep them on the right track.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working at a secondary school for one year, as a teacher of A level Psychology and as a cover supervisor. I have covered GCSE science for a short period. I have also tutored in English, and run small group Psychology tutoring sessions twice a week. As a result, I am very experienced with the new specifications across Psychology and GCSE Science. I also have an abundance of resources readily available for students to use.

Tutoring Approach:

I adopt a fun but progress driven approach to tutoring. I want to not only get my students achieving their potential and beyond, but to inspire enjoyment in learning. This will involve a wide variety of resources and tasks, which can be tailored to suit the needs of all students. On first meeting with a student, I will establish preferred learning strategies and adapt my sessions to suit the needs of that individual. I also take advantage of technology including apps for Biology and Psychology.
