Personal Description:
I have Special Needs University qualifications and counseling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for the past 14 years preparing students for +11, +13 exams in English and Maths. I also teach Maths up to A level.

I am a certified therapist in PhonoGraphix method for addressing spelling and reading difficulties both for children and adults.

I could also help with learning computers (ECDL syllabus including usage of Word, PowerPoint, Internet, Excel).

Tutoring Approach:

I have Special Needs University qualifications and counselling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

As a tutor, I encourage my students to reflect upon their mistakes and to understand how to tackle the next step of their learning, without having a negative response.

I usually have the first lesson together with the parents so that the student feels comfortable and parents can observe my teaching; I present a folder containing the CRB form, qualifications, QTS certificate and letters of recommendations from parents. I teach from home in a calm and stimulating environment.
The first lesson is only paid if the parent decides to continue tuition.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my Ph.D, which was about the philosophy of folly in Shakespeare's plays.

Whereas English Literature, Language and Philosophy are my primary disciplines, I have also taught German and History up to A-Level standard. I graduated with a First Class degree in English Literature and received a high distinction for my Master's degree, which were both from London University. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, which means that I am qualified to teach at university-level.

My ultimate objective is to teach and research at university level. I am a keen individual, who values the arts and humanities. I believe education is not simply a means to an end; rather, it offers exciting and new ways of thinking about ourselves and the world around us.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is fairly extensive and I have taught both in this country and abroad.

For the last two years, I have lectured and led seminars at Royal Holloway, University of London; I have also continued to teach A-Level and GCSE students English, Philosophy and History as I have done since 2009.

In 2010, I designed and taught a course for American university students, which was called "British Culture". This course was, in essence, an history of ideas in this country from the Roman invasion to the present.

My work has been published in major academic journals and my thesis is currently under consideration by publishers. At the other end of the spectrum, as an undergraduate, I worked as a teaching assistant in primary and secondary schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I realise that at Key Stages 1,2, and 3 the emphasis needs to be on passing exams. At this level, I aim to provide an entertaining and relaxed session, which remains focused on providing and reinforcing the information required to pass an exam.

I hesitate, however, to say that my style is informal. I believe that when instructing younger children a certain amount of structure is required. This does not mean that the session needs be short-sighted; rather that we focus on a structured approach to attaining goals in an interesting and fulfilling way. At the higher levels and for mature students my approach is more relaxed.

Personal Description:
A graduate of Cambridge and Durham I have specialised in ancient languages and literature. While based in Durham I am currently completing a PhD in Old Norse literature at the Birkbeck College, University of London.

Teaching Experience:

As well as current private tutoring in English lit, Lang and Classics at all levels I am an undergraduate tutor at Durham University. I have strong experience helping students reach their full potential and gain the grades they need or higher. I have taught both online and in person, both at GCSE-adult. I was selected as an open day lecturer for Newnham college Cambridge in 2008 and I have attended several courses on lecturing in secondary and higher education both at Birkbeck and Oxford.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to inspire my students with the same passion and interest I feel for language and literature, texts and contexts. I tailor my approach to the need of each student, but in general teach not by lecturing but by posing questions which lead the student to a greater understanding of text and context. I aim to show students how to enjoy the subject as well as teach them the means and methods to make their studying and writing easier. I have a great deal of experience helping students with exam and essay technique.

Personal Description:
I'm a full-time maths tutor and have been tutoring since graduating university in 2004. I have always wanted to be a teacher, mainly because I have always been taught by bad ones when I was learning. However, I prefer tutoring as opposed to classroom teaching as I believe students can benefit so much more from this method.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from year 9 up to university level, all with different learning styles and requirements. I am also familiar with all three main exam boards AQA, Edexcel and OCR and have taught both Modular and Linear courses. I like to set homework to reinforce learning. Most of the work I get is from students studying towards their GCSEs or A-Levels but it is certainly not limited to this range.

Tutoring Approach:

When I was at University, everyone was always asking me how to solve a certain problem; not just because I was good at arriving at the solution, but because I could always explain the path to the solution much better than lecturers, and this is what inspired me to take it further. I know people find Maths difficult, but it helps a lot if you have someone show you the simplest methods and which help you understand what is going on.
I'm very friendly and believe that students should feel completely comfortable in asking me anything thay want, no matter how trivial it may seem

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to help my students have understanding and confidence, when answering exam questions as well as being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems.

My approach varies on the student's needs as well as their learning style. Overall, I want my students to perform very well, and its amazing to watch them flower!
Recently a student of mine went into his exam with extreme confidence, and texted me 'I have learnt so much since you have started tutoring me, I feel very confident in the exam I just sat. Thank you once again'.

Personal Description:
An approachable and empathetic manager in my former profession as an IT consultant, I am now a qualified EFL teacher who is able to encourage and motivate people to achieve their goals. I am highly organised and enjoy being creative. I make the most of my advanced IT skills to produce materials to meet the learning needs of my students. I have a lifelong enthusiasm for language, culture and meeting new people from all walks of life, to learn and share experiences.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently achieved my Trinity CertTESOL which included teaching both group and individual lessons for a range of abilities from pre-intermediate to advanced. I was thoroughly stimulated by this course and enjoyed it immensely. I am now capable of going into a classroom and producing a well-thought out, appropriate and stimulating lesson that will help students of English to achieve their linguistic aims. In my former career as an IT consultant I coached, trained and mentored junior staff.

Tutoring Approach:

I see the learning experience as a partnership between the teacher and the learner. I particularly enjoy working with an individual learner as I am able to focus on their personal needs and at our first session I will work with you to determine what you would like and need to achieve and to design a programme tailored just for you. In my Trinity CertTESOL course I was awarded an A grade for the needs analysis assignment.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Angela and I am a fully qualified teacher. I have been teaching for 4 years and during that time I have taught across the whole of the primary age range, from Foundation-Year 6. I am currently working as a supply teacher as I have recently relocated to the area, which I am thoroughly enjoying! This enables me to give much more time into tutoring. I am a hardworking, patient and likable person who works hard to achieve goals.

Teaching Experience:

As before, I have been teaching for 4 years. During this time I have taught classes ranging from foundation to year 6 which has given me a wide breadth of the curriculum and how best to teach to each age range and suit needs of particular children. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and extremely enjoy tutoring as I notice the amount of progress that can be made from 1-1 tuition. During my 4 years of teaching I have been involved in an Ofsted inspection, in which I was graded 'Outstanding' for my work. I would like to use my teaching skills to support children who may need that 1-1 tuition to further children in their learning, in order to achieve the very best that they can. I have been tutoring for the past 3 years. In this time I have tutored mostly year 6 children through maths, literacy and reading support, as well as covering science. I have also supported younger children in years 1, 2,3, 4 and 5 through their day to day progress reaching their goals and beyond.
