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 7 years preparing students for +11, +13 exams in English and Maths. I also teach Maths up to GSCE 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:
Hello,

I'm a 28 year old from the Old Trafford/ Stretford area of Manchester, I graduated in Law from Lancaster university in 2008 but currently work in Banking/finance. I am an individual who is quite fond of reading, debating and discovering new things. I would say I am quite lively, not too difficult to get on with, very ambitious but also with an equal dash of a patience for I am a patient individual. Although I am admittedly not fantastic at sports I do play badminton and football from time to time I can play a range of sports but those tend to be the main two. I am a massive fan of education and self development. The colossal impact both areas can have upon our lives is incalcuable, as such I tend to be never too far away from reading a book or learning something new to further myself.

Teaching Experience:

I have mainly gained a lot of my early teaching experience through tutoring younger siblings and assisting the junior year students either at college or University with areas which they either required either extra help in or further knowledge. As such I have further developed this over the last four years and I am confident that the contribution which I have made to those who I have helped has been substantial in helping them to progress onwards to the next stage and beyond. As such I would hope to extend this towards any student who desires to take me on board and to progress until they are ready for the task at hand.

As I have progressed over the years, teaching various and numerous tutees, my own personal & teaching experience has grown exponentially year on year. As such I believe I can approach any teaching scenario and offer the required angle to ensure success as a result of previous experience yet I still take each student on a case by case/ individual basis rather than a blanket approach.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin my approach with an informal but analytical conversation with the student, parent or both in order to assess strengths and areas where we can develop a plan of action or just to establish face to face what it is we will be doing in the time we have. I will aim to take each stage step by step until both you and I are satisfied that we are confident in understanding and explaining coherently the relevant information. I will be professional but understanding as patience dictates, most importantly any work set during the session will be wholly relevant, comprehensible and creative in order to match your needs.

I do incorporate digital media or a whiteboard depending on the subject if a visual element is required in teaching. Presentations can be sent via email at any time as well.


*For any LPC students I can also tutor and instruct in Solicitors accounts too.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm a friendly, highly motivated and intelligent recent graduate from the University of Sheffield. I'm twenty four and have completed Undergraduate and Master's degrees in Geography. I have consistently been a high achiever. My Degrees were completed with First class honours and Distinction, whilst I gained all 'A' grades in my A Levels. Since graduating last year I have invested my energies working for the Centre for Recent Drawing in North London as a curatorial assistant whilst building up my freelance tutoring work. I have a passion for art and am also a keen cyclist, enjoying long cycle rides out to Brighton or further afield. Furthermore, I am also preparing my thesis, completed at Masters Level, for submission to an internationally reputed academic geography journal.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst at college I participated in a scheme linking with local schools teaching basic numeracy skills. Since graduating I have built up my private tutoring, teaching Geography, Politics and English Literature up to A Level. However, I believe the best experience that I have is my own, recent experience of the education system, from A Levels to a Masters Degree. I am used to current syllabuses, and most importantly, I know how to succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient yet enthusiastic tutor. I tailor my tuition to each individual tutee, looking at what goals each person wants to achieve and working out the best way I can help in their attainment. I will research the particular syllabus of each of the tutee's courses, tailoring my teaching to it. Importantly I have access to up-to-date syllabuses so all my teaching will be relevant. I also have access to exam papers and mark schemes to practice exam technique. I am an experienced editor, having copy edited published fiction. Therefore I am an accomplished proof reader of essays and can give excellent suggestions on how to improve essay writing skills.

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be a friendly and approachable teacher. I get on well with the children I teach gaining their respect through being firm, fair and fun.

Teaching Experience:

I have 11 years teaching experience within a primary school setting. I have taught all primary age groups from 4-11 years. During this time I have planned and assessed children and used current SAT's materials.

Tutoring Approach:

I treat every student as an individual and asses their needs accordingly. I plan my lessons to suit their needs using my up to date knowledge of the curriculum and assessment criteria. My lessons are fun and interactive wherever possible using both written and practical techniques. I have found that children gain confidence in their ability and begin to move forward and keep up with the work in class.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and patient person who loves teaching. I have a background in music and theatre, having a degree and extensive professional experience in both, and have worked at venues including Shakespeare's Globe and The Sage, Gateshead.

As a supply teaching assistant in primary schools I would be a competent tutor for younger children, giving additional help with reading/writing/maths and other subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a supply teaching assistant for over a year and a half and have often visited up to three different schools a week. This means I am very experienced in meeting and working with new children. In schools I do anything from reading The Gruffalo to teaching maths and am sometimes put in sole charge of classrooms. I regularly work one to one with children with learning difficulties. In addition to this, I have led multiple primary school drama workshops on everything from little red riding-hood to The Odyssey.

Along side this, I tutored a 5 year old boy for about a year and then started tutoring his younger brother in basic numeracy and literacy. I am also tutoring a year 5 girl in maths and have tutored a 7 year old boy in drama. References from parents would be available.

Having read music to degree level (2.1 from Durham University) I am in a position to tutor students in music theory and analysis at all levels and can teach very basic piano.

Additionally, my career and training as a theatre director allows me to tutor in drama at all levels, from building confidence with Lamda exams to preparing for drama school. As a director i audition on a regular basis so can coach audition technique for drama schools from the angle of the panel. Being widely read i can also advise on audition speeches.

I offer lessons in acting, covering different skills and methods according to the needs of each individual.

Tutoring Approach:

Often working one to one with students in primary schools, I am able to tutor children who need a little extra help in understanding their subjects. I am always very patient, enthusiastic and positive as I find children respond best to this, it helps the child to trust me and then together we can made strides with learning, be it reading, maths, or anything else in the curriculum.

Whether you need help with Bach Chorales, grade V theory or an essay on Beethoven I can help with every level of music. Having achieved a high level in all these areas I can coach university and school level, or adults looking to progress their musical skills.

As a director i audition on a regular basis so can coach audition technique for drama schools from the angle of the panel. Being widely read i can also advise on audition speeches. I also offer lessons in acting, covering different skills and methods according to the needs of each individual.

My approach to tutoring is simple; I believe results come from encouragement and patience. I think that everyone responds far better to a smile and constructive help than from anything else. I want my tutees to grow in confidence as well as in ability and feel i am the tutor to help.

Personal Description:
I completed my Undergraduate and Masters degrees, both in Film Studies, at the University of Northumbria in 2006 and 2008 respectively. I am currently writing up my doctoral thesis at the University of Manchester, to be submitted in March 2013. My area is Film Studies in general, and film spectatorship, psychoanalysis and cognitive theories in film, and discourses in gender, sexuality and the body in particular. I am experienced in studying a wide range of film genres; I specialise particularly in American, British, European, Australian and Asian horror, and contemporary European cinema. I have presented at a number of conferences and have been accepted for two publications. I have highly developed research skills and extensive experience in proof-reading. I also have experience in tutoring students for whom English is their second or third language. The language of Film Studies, something I am highly adept at, is often difficult when English is your first language! I can help students of any language to make sense of complex theories, dense articles, and allow your arguments and analyses to shine through.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught for two years on the Introduction to Film module at the University of Manchester (2009-2011). I took seminar groups of up to 15 students at a time and led discussions on a wide range of subjects from foundational theories of film to contemporary debates on narrative, cinematography, mise-en-scene, genre, film stars, film audiences and adaptations. I tutored each student individually on request, discussing early drafts of essays in depth, brainstorming ideas, contextualising their approaches and pointing them towards further reading and film viewing. I marked two years worth of essays and exams which gave me valuable insight into the criteria and levels expected of film studies students of an Undergradute level. I was also an e-tutor on the Manchester Leadership Programme for two years (2009-2011). I led online discussions on various contextual debates surrounding leadership across the globe. I participated in a series of lectures for the University of Manchester Race Relations Centre where I spoke and led discussons on various films from Resident Evil to La Haine.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring aims to develop an in-depth understanding of the subject through interactive means. For example, when discussing the symbolic potential of mise-en-scene I ask my students to prepare a storyboard of a given narrative. I find practice based methods allow a long lasting engagement with a topic.

Having said this, I also assess each student's needs and establish realistic targets for achievement. I am patient and understanding, and will cover any given topic for as long as a student needs to feel entirely comfortable and confident with it.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Aberdeen and before that I got an MChem in Chemistry. I also have extensive knowledge of Biology until A Level and Physics until GCSE. I currently work for an educational publisher working on international education books up to A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor in the past and I have tutored primarily university students (4 years experience) but I do have experience in tutoring school level students in all three sciences. I have successfully tutored students to grade A standard at A Level and GCSE, with one student gaining an A*.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to work commitments I have been away from tutoring for a while (around 4 years) but it is something that I wish to get back into as I found it very rewarding. During a previous role I was selected as a mentor for new graduate trainees which ignited my desire to become a tutor again.

I tend to structure the sessions depending on the needs to the individual. I am happy to simply go over a topic or come up with sample tests - I am totally flexible and will aim to cater for your requirements.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English, and also hold a BA and PhD in English literature. In addition to my 11-18 teaching experience, I have also taught literature at undergraduate level. Up to the present, I have been working as a full-time teacher of English in a secondary school (11-18), but have recently decided to seek more flexible teaching work in order to devote more time to my growing family.

Teaching Experience:

As a secondary school teacher of English (11-18), an excellent understanding of pupils and how they learn is an essential part of my role. I have experience of teaching English at both KS3, GCSE and A-Level. As a former university tutor and academic I am also particularly equipped to help older pupils through the process of completing A-Levels and competing for University positions and employment. Overall, I feel that my extensive experience both within and without the field of English teaching equips me to help pupils achieve their fullest potential. In addition, I hold a Diploma in Interior Design, and offer private tuition and home schooling in Textiles at GCSE and A-Level.

Tutoring Approach:

My style of teaching encourages pupils to enhance their own reading and writing skills, as well as providing essential support. I understand that different pupils have different needs and different learning styles, and I always endeavor to find an approach to teaching that will engage my particular pupil. I like variety and excitement in the lessons and tuition that I deliver, but at the same time I insist on a rigorous approach to study and especially to writing.

Personal Description:
I currently work in a Law firm as a Family Paralegal, however I have tutored student in the past and I am available from 6:30pm on wards on weekdays and all day weekends. I have studied Law at A level, undergraduate level and at postgraduate level. I have achieved exceptional grades at all academic stages. I currently live in Leicester and can travel as I have my own transport so will travel up to 5 miles from where I am located in Leicester.

I can do online work with you if this is more efficient and convenient for you, for example either via Skype or email, assisting you and proof reading, structuring, checking research for essays.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students for the academic year 2012-2013 and I have really enjoyed it. I am committed to my students and very enthusiastic. I am also very efficient at proof reading essays and restructuring.

I also have ELECTRONIC REVISION NOTES for all modules in the LPC and LLB Law and others including Family Law, Employment Law, Personal Injury, Company etc...JUST ASK.

I understand as students it can be a financial strain, therefore I can NEGOTIATE on price.

Tutoring Approach:

I assess the students needs and see what their targets are. I ensure that I assist the student in the weakest areas as well as working on their strengths. I am aware that Law is an essay based subject, and teach students the skill to writing a good essay. I make learning enjoyable, and find ways for students to retain the knowledge needed. I also provide tips for revision and for the build up to exams work on past exam questions.

TRAVEL: if you would like me to travel, I charge 0.40p per mile depending on the distance, this is negotiable

Personal Description:
I am a 22 year old female, currently pursuing MSc in Economics from London School of Economics and Political Science.
I am from India (Delhi) and have completed my Bachelor's in Economics from the University of Delhi. I scored 92.8% in my GCSE equivalent exams and 92.6% in my A-Level exams. I also secured a distinction in my University with 78.3% marks. In my A-level exams, I scored a 95% in Math, Economics, Physics and Chemistry.

I am a budding writer. I worked as a correspondent with an online social media website for 15 months. I am a very passionate and driven individual and I am forever looking forward to expanding my horizons. Currently, I am in the process of learning Spanish while also serving as the Treasurer of my Hall Committee (Bankside House, LSE).

I am very fond of reading and some of my favourite books are- "To kill a mockingbird- Harper Lee", "A palace of Illusions- Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni", "A thousand splendid suns- Khalid Hosseini" and "The Help- Kathryn Stockett".

I am an enthusiastic traveler and have visited the following countries- USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and Mexico. Currently, of course, I am staying in the UK for my Masters degree.

I love making new friends and meeting new people. I am forever looking for new experiences and strongly believe that every individual I meet has something new to teach me. I believe the biggest motto in life is to be happy and everything else must follow that.

Teaching Experience:

I have a substantial amount of teaching experience. I have taught Economics to high school students. I have also been a Math tutor to children aged 10-12 years and 14-17 years. Since my course is highly mathematical, I believe that I would be able to the students a deeper understanding of the underlying concepts. My entire education has been in English medium schools and hence, proficiency in understanding and speaking English is not an issue.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style would largely be determined by the nature of the individual I am dealing with. Patience being my strong suit, I am happy to explain the same concept for the millionth time if so needed. My academic record has been quite exceptional and I keep myself updated on the newer methods of teaching and learning. I believe I can tailor my teaching style in accordance with what the student would be comfortable with.
I focus on relating concepts to real life experiences and observations which help to imprint them in the minds of the students and de-emphasize rote learning since then memory plays a crucial role in performance.

However, I do focus on making assignments which I expect to be handed back to me (flexible deadlines, of course) and I do give regular tests to assess if my student is able to coherently express his/her ideas in accordance with what is expected in an examination framework.

I am happy to give a trial class for ₤18.
