Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old tutor based in south east London. For the past twelve years I have been teaching pupils of all ages and abilities in many different capacities and have an excellent success rate with my pupils.

I also work with children with behavioural difficulties/learning disabilities and with adults of all ages and nationalities.

Should you wish to use me, you would encounter a tutor easy to relate to and learn from in an enjoyable and easy environment. I believe a student who is abler ease with their tutor is far more likely to progress no matter where they are starting from!

I hope very much to hear from you soon.

Private Tuition (Paddington) Private tutor
Government-funded scheme to increase literacy levels amongst primary school pupils
2006-Present: Private Tuition in in all subjects and age ranges offered throughout London.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe one to one private tuition requires a tutor who can adapt to the needs of the pupil.

I would wish to meet the pupil initially to establish how they may best be assisted and what the pupil's key areas of concern are.

In short, each mind, young or old, needs different approaches and I believe my strongest ability is an adaptability to meet the varying needs and requirements of every student.

My approach, in most cases would be to follow a curriculum, finding out where their difficulties lie within this curriculum and how it would be best to resolve them.

I tend to use past papers when it comes to exam based tuition as this is ultimately what they will be faced with come exam time! However, when I have a pupil for longer there is more scope for more imaginative teaching or simply assistance with difficult homework.

With each of my previous pupils I have needed and been able to assist them in a way that is individually appealing to them and I have never had a pupil who has not achieved their desired results.

Personal Description:
I have an easygoing and pleasant demeanour, a nice sense of humour, and I generally get on well with my tutees. Although I like to have a friendly relationship with my tutee, I try to employ a professional manner at all times. I am a man in his early, middling years, who enjoys seeing others fulfil their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher, who has taught privately one to one for a number of years. I have primarily taught English on a one to one basis for tutees who are preparing for their GCSE and "A" level examinations, but I am also experienced in helping tutees improve their literacy skills from a young age. I also have a wealth of experience of teaching English as a Foreign language on a one to one basis. I have taught in a number of language schools over the years, and at one point started a language school in southern Italy. I have considerable experience teaching English up to "A" level standard in secondary education, and I have over fifteen years experience to draw upon.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one teaching, by its nature, is very intense, so it is very important to introduce variety as much as possible. A mixture of written work, as well as oral work, if required is essential to keep the tutee focused and interested in what you are teaching. It helps, sometimes, after an intense session, fot the tutee to have a short break, before continuing.

Personal Description:
I have several years English teaching and GCSE examining experience following my degree and am currently teaching English/English at GCSE, A level and undergraduate level on a private basis. I have recently completed a Master's degree in English which I passed with merit. Although I have many years of experience in GCSE English, I would particularly welcome opportunities in A level tutoring and have just been appointed to a panel of A level English examiners.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught A Level and GCSE English in FE colleges. Following this I started private tutoring in English at all ages and levels along with some basic Primary maths. More recently my work as an English Literature examiner has enhanced my understanding of student needs and of course the requirements of the GCSE exam syllabus. As I have been tutoring for some time now I am familiar with the varying requirements of all the major exam boards in GCSE and A level English Language and English Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

The greatest thing is seeing the student gain in confidence as their ability grows. One to one tuition enables the student to be honest about problems that are difficult to raise in the classroom at school or college. Consequently the tutor can focus on the individual needs of the student. This is the philosophy I adopt in tutoring. I am very conscientious, approachable and happy to adapt to the needs of the individual student , then watch them thrive.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Colchester most of my life, and had an uncle who was a teacher; this inspiring me to become involved in education, after having worked in other occupations.
My interests include drama, photography, salsa dancing, classic cars and travel. I am also actively involved in a number of societies, including being a committee member.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2003.
I am experienced in 1 to 1 tuition, and have also worked as a part time college lecturer. I currently work as a
training manager (in work based learning in transport), as well as a tutor.
I've also been involved in verifying learning material, and have worked with LAC/SEN students.
I aspire to eventually become a qualified (QTS) teacher.
I am a member of the Institute for Learning, and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to input their own ideas and opinions into tutorials, as I feel this can help their learning process, over merely having a tutor "talking", and them "listening".
Basically, my approach to tutoring is like a "two way street", with good communication and interaction between
both parties, which in turn can make the learning experience more fulfilling for the student.
I set homework for students, (where applicable).

Personal Description:
I am a private mathematics tutor with over 2 years experience working with tutees of ages from primary up to secondary and adult learners.

Additionally, I currently volunteer at Hackney Pirates, a charitable organisation developing the literacy, confidence and perseverance of young people in Hackney.

My academic background is in engineering, graduating with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the prestigious Imperial College London university. At A-level I achieved straight A's in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics averaging 98% in my Mathematics A-level.

Outside my work as a mathematics tutor I have a keen interest in cinema and am an amateur filmmaker and photographer.

Teaching Experience:

I am a mathematics tutor with extensive experience working with children of all ages within schools and in private one-on-one sessions.

I currently hold weekly sessions with three pupils between the ages of 10 and 15 years. My current pupils and those I have worked with in the past have always achieve their target grades, often scoring higher than expected.

A reference from a previous client:
"Hardy is very organised, efficient and committed to his job. He is responsible, loves Maths and has an excellent rapport with my daughter. In his approach to teaching Maths, Hardy is very thorough and precise. He will accommodate the lessons according to the needs of the pupil and his methods of teaching are very clear and easy to follow.

In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending Hardy as a Maths teacher." - Roberta, London (N16)

Tutoring Approach:

The main characteristic of my teaching style is my determination to see the pupil solve the problem themselves. I am very happy to explain the concept of the problem in several ways and using graphical help if necessary but will not disclose answers unless I feel it will aid in the learning process. In mathematics process is the key, as this will allow the pupil to apply the knowledge more capably when dealing with subsequent problems.

Personal Description:
My name is Dave, and I live in the Inverness area. I have a degree in History (Hons), and my area of expertise is UK and European social history from 1700. I have also studied US history, Scottish history, and European political history.

I also have a Masters Degree in Employment Law and Practice through the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.

In my spare time I coach school football, and have done so for 8 years.

Teaching Experience:

While I have no formal teaching experience, I have home tutored several children of friends. I have also coached hundreds of children up to age 16, in football lessons. As head coach for the local school, I have taught not only technical skills to children, but just as importantly, instilled a sense of self belief, and confidence, in their abilities. The confidence to express an opinion is vitally important and I do believe that, when it comes to history, belief in ability in expressing one's own viewpoint is crucial.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to encourage self belief, and achieve this through a relaxed, proactive approach to the subject matter. I can critically analyse a students written work, and suggest ways of making those all important changes in order to achieve higher grades.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified full time science teacher who enjoys teaching and working with young people!

Teaching Experience:

I have eighteen years experience of teaching in private schools. I have been a Head of Department/Faculty and have run many revision courses. I have also written a number of revision guides/workbooks for a leading publisher.

Tutoring Approach:

I am calm, patient and have a number of proven techniques and strategies to enable students to 'get chemistry and science' and to optimise performance in exams. I enjoy teaching and will work hard to ensure you are able to do your best. I strongly believe that if you enjoy lessons then you are less likely to find it difficult so enjoyment is important to me.

Personal Description:
I finished school this year, so the school curriculum is still fresh in my mind. I am currently on a gap year, dedicating time to setting up community building activities for youth and children in order to empower them to use their talents to serve their communities. I will be studying Medicine at Sheffield starting September 2015.

Teaching Experience:

Having completed a course on children's education, I taught classes for children of various ages once a week for 3 years with a focus on developing in them a thirst for knowledge. I am currently working with a small group of children (11-15 years old) in an empowerment programme, using materials which look at applying mathematical concepts to real life situations. I have also been teaching Tae Kwon Do to 4-15 year olds for the past 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

Confidence, motivation and enjoyment are vital qualities in young people when learning. Constant encouragement is important, as well as seeing each individual as unique, with different weaknesses and strengths. I therefore try to be creative in the way in which we explore concepts, adapting to an individual's learning preferences and building upon their understanding.

Personal Description:
Hiya!

I'm a Law student who has been tutoring for more than a handful of years!
With vast knowledge in the subjects that I specialise in, I only think its best to give back to others.
I have achieved well in GCSE and A Level English, Maths and Politics; hence the chosen field.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a support officer in my local primary school, as well as my secondary school helping children in various subjects such as Maths and English.
I have been a personal tutor as well as doing private tutoring from 2009 onwards 2015

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. I cover the topics required, and work particular on the weaknesses that my students identify. Regular practice in the subject also helps me identify where the student needs more help. 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'.
