Personal Description:
I'm an Associate of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Institute for Learning. I work as an A-level examiner and AQA adviser to schools. I have a PhD in Biochemistry and have published several scientific research papers.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and tutoring A-level Chemistry for 10 years. I specialise in the AQA exam board and work as an examiner and adviser to schools. I have also been teaching online for 4 years and have new digital teaching resources for 2015, developed specifically for the AQA specification. I have been involved in teaching at Durham University and received the Durham University Teaching and Learning Award in 2011.

I now tutor exclusively AQA due to my work for this exam board (since 2013 I no longer offer tuition for OCR, Edexcel or CIE boards).

Tutoring Approach:

My tuition is based around developing exam technique as well as improving understanding. I am happy to offer a free 30 minute trial lesson and answer any questions.

Personal Description:
A full member of the Tutors Association, I have much tuition, coaching and training experience; both one-to-one and in groups.
Holding several relevant academic qualifications (including a degree in Maths & Physics), I am also a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Scientist, full Corporate Member of the Institute of Physics.
During my career, I have held several senior management positions within several British based companies.
Having a fundamental love of virtually all things mathematical and scientific, I very much enjoy passing on this enthusiasm & knowledge to 'A' Level students, with the aim of enhancing their skills & boosting examination performance.
I hold full and current enhanced DBS accreditation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been offering 'A' Level tuition in Maths & Physics since 1997
The vast majority of students with whom I have worked have either achieved, or surpassed, their target grades.
During the last academic year (2013/2014)) I was pleased to work regularly (typically weekly) with fourteen 'A' Level Maths students, three 'A' Level Physics students, one student studying Electrical Engineering, and one studying Maths with the Open University.

Tutoring Approach:

Being an active participant in, and supporter of, the whole education process, I have also held a four year LEA Governorship at a school in mid-Devon.
My approach to tutoring is, first of all, to talk openly with any potential student (ideally with parent or guardian present) in order to find out what is required, the problems, issues etc.
I treat all students as adults, and do not patronise or talk down to them, ie I treat each one as a mature individual. My aim is to work closely with each student, in the way that best suits him/her, in order to empower him/her with higher levels of knowledge and ability. The result being that their confidence and skill levels increase to those necessary to achieve the best possible exam grades. I encourage my students to actively participate in the tutoring process; to challenge, and to ask questions and discuss all aspects of the work content.
I coach all my students in exam techniques, with emphasis on layout, showing working, best use of time etc.
Last, but certainly not least, I believe it to be of fundamental importance to work with all my students in complete confidence; before, during and after any tutoring involvement.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Francis. I am a 28-year-old native English speaker based in Colchester. I hold a Joint Honours English Literature & History degree from York St John University. In 2003 the only A grade I received at GCSE level was in French. Between 2012 and 2014 I studied optional Mandarin and Spanish at university, having rekindled my own interest in, and talent for, language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience teaching English to both children and adults in Wuhan, China, during my time there.

Tutoring Approach:

As I have mentioned, learning foreign languages is both an interest and a talent of mine. However, I am equally interested in teaching my own first language to those who wish to learn it; the English language, both written and spoken, is a rich cultural tapestry going back into ancient times, and a functioning knowledge of it is a worthy addition to anybody's CV. I believe that encouragement and positive reinforcement are the key to success in any endeavour, and accordingly I hope you will find me to be a friendly, positive, encouraging and patient tutor.

I am hoping to work with anyone who wishes to improve their English skills. I can help you improve your grammar, spelling, pronunciation, vocabulary or conversational skills, and I can also teach you some things about British culture and history if you wish; while learning a language is important, it is also necessary to know a certain amount of background about the place where it is spoken. It does not matter if you are not yet fluent - what's most important is that you are willing to learn, and will enjoy doing so. I aim to put the student first, and with this in mind we will discuss and then tackle subject matter appropriate to your age, ability, personal interests, and study aims.

  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (14 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I obtained my degree in physics and doctorate in theoretical physics from the University of Nottingham. I then spent ten years working as a physicist in various universities in Italy, New Zealand and the UK. My specialty was low temperature physics. I am fascinated by science and try to pass on my enthusiasm.

In my spare time I enjoy white-water kayaking.

One of my responsibilities as a postdoctoral researcher was to mentor physics students. I am used to explaining difficult concepts and techniques in a clear, simple and concise way. I also have experience teaching white-water kayaking!

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage the student to think for himself/herself rather than spoon-feeding the material. I ensure that the student understands the fundamental concepts behind each topic, and does not simple regurgitate methods by rote.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Kate. I have a BA degree in Art History with English Language as a minor subject as well as ESL studies in Methodology. I have post grad studies in Creative non fiction and journalism. I am also confident to teach History.
I have a Montessori Diploma for children ages 3-6 and Montessori Certificates in TEAL - Teaching English as an Additional Language, SEN, and Creativity in the Nursery.

I have taught ESL to students in Spain, the Netherlands, London, and Canada.
I can speak good Spanish, some Dutch and French.

I believe that learning a language should be fun and stress free and with some hard work it is possible to learn to speak English well. I also think it is important to learn not only conversational skills and vocabulary but also grammar so that it is possible to create the language for yourself rather than relying on phrases for practical use.

I have had a lot of success with students passing the TOEFL and TOIC exams - equivalent to the Cambridge exams here and especially with the written Essay Component which many students find very challenging.

With children I like to have fun and focus lessons on what the children like but also be firm to keep discipline in a group.
I have also had a very high success rate with children ages 11-12 with Latin and enjoy teaching this subject.

I go over all of the core skills for English: Vocabulary, Reading, Conversation, Writing, Listening and Grammar.
I accept groups for lessons and give a reduced rate depending on the amount of students in the group. For any group over 3 students I will charge the students individually within the group. This applies to children also.

I am originally from Canada and have a good clear speaking voice with a standard accent and very easy to understand.
I now live in Marlborough in Wiltshire. Please note: I do not have a car so lessons will have to be- preferably in the students home- especially with children or depending on the lesson requirements it is possible to meet in a public place for adults.
In any case, I need to take buses so this has to be considered. I don't mind walking some distance within reason.
In the past, some parents have arranged transport.

Teaching Experience:

Over 5 years with both adults and children - please see above.

Tutoring Approach:

Also please see above comments.
