Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher of German and Spanish and I have been teaching for a number of years. I am now working as a teacher of Modern Languages in a secondary school.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of one-to-one and small group tutoring and I have a thorough knowledge of the Scottish school curriculum including arrangements for the new National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher courses. I have now taught the new Curriculum for Excellnece courses in both German and Spanish and have a good understanding of levels and assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a great way of learning a language because you benefit from full attention of your tutor. I plan and deliver my lessons to suit my pupils' needs. Passing an exam often needs specialist preparation with someone who knows the exam system and can guide their pupil/student through e.g. unit assessments, Talking exam preparation etc.
On the other hand, we learn languages to use them independently, free from the constraints of selected exam topics. This is where vocabulary, language structure and grammar come together and enables the learner to use their learning in different contexts. I teach all areas effectively using tried and tested techniques and resources that will help my learners improve their knowledge of the language.

Personal Description:
Specialist maths tuition - I have 17 years of teaching experience across the primary age range and have worked in both the independent and state sectors. For the last 6 years I have worked as lead mathematics intervention teacher, having trained in the Numbers Count programme from Edge Hill University and coordinated and delivered interventions to children from Year 1-6 as well as teaching sets in KS2. All my work has been very successful in helping children close the gaps on their peers and achieve age related expectations. More recently I have also set up a mathematics consultancy focussed on training teachers and helping children to gain a clear understanding of maths and maximising attainment and enjoyment of the subject.
I have lots of tutoring experience over 17 years, both for general numeracy and literacy support as well as entrance exam coaching but my speciality is certainly in maths coaching where I feel I can offer an outstanding service in supporting children who struggle.

Teaching Experience:

17 years as class teacher in Foundation stage, Y1 and Y2 followed by work with children from across the whole school (y1-6) and most recently in KS2 teaching the least able children in maths and achieving above average results. This year my school was in the top 5% nationwide for end of KS2 achievement.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and approachable and have always maintained good relationships with the children I have worked with. I make lessons fun and try hard to support and complement the work they do at school to ensure continuity and progression. I am very much focussed on supporting learning in a practical and memorable way.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Physics with Astrophysics student at the University of York. I am a confident, mature individual who is driven to be successful. I have a down to earth personality which will make me more relatable and easier to pass on my breadth of knowledge.

Teaching Experience:

The only experience I have with students was in my second year of college. In collaboration with the Maths department, I ran a peer mentoring session with first years every week. This was an hour long meeting in the library or a classroom with 5-6 students, where I would help them with topics they struggled with or go over some details from their lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important and effective way of learning is through practice of the subject. I would use the first part of a session to go over some important points to a topic and teach basic skills. Then put these into practice, going through questions, aided and unaided, including past paper questions.

Personal Description:
I am a 54 year old mother of three grown up children and one a adorable granddaughter. I love working with young people and children. And really enjoy encouraging young people to fullfill their potential. I may be slightly more expensive than university students who offer tuition however I have teaching and exam experience and good exam results.

I have 14 years experience teaching Biology in an outstanding school; teaching GCSE and A Level.

I have a good exam results track record. On two occasions supporting over half of my GCSE students to gain A*; as well as many of my A level students gaining A and A*.

I also tutor primary aged children Maths and English.

My tutoring takes place after school and on Saturday mornings at my own premises.

Teaching Experience:

I have some early years experience from when I lived in New Zealand for fourteen years. However, my more relevant experience to this is I have a 2:1 degree in Biomedical science, and 13 years experience of teaching KS 3 science, KS 4 and A level Biology.

Tutoring Approach:

As I am a very positive person I encourage my students with lots of praise. However, this is not just when they do well but also when they try hard. I emphasise that its learning from mistakes that improves learning. I strongly encourage the ethos of having an open mindset; only by giving something a go can you succeed! I lead my students to become independent thinkers and learners.

Personal Description:
¡Hola! My name is Chiara and I'm 24 years old. I'm a Spanish native speaker, but I can also speak Italian, Portuguese, Catalan and English. I was born in Italy, but I've lived in Barcelona for the last 21 years of my life. I've always studied in Spanish schools and university, so I can say that Spanish is my mother tongue. I'm a Journalism graduate and at the moment I'm working as an au pair in Ealing (London).

Teaching Experience:

I have one year of experience teaching Spanish and Catalan to secondary and high school students (12-18) in Sigmund, a tutoring school in my hometown. The classes were both individual and for groups.

I've been tutoring a 16 year old girl for her GCSE exam for more than one year and a 9 year old to help her with her primary school lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important thing is to know what the student wants to achieve. I like to make my classes entertaining and use different materials (recordings, videos, texts, books), as well as teach the language in all the aspects.

Personal Description:
I am currently pursuing my PhD on topic "CRM for Small businesses in service sector in UK". I have obtained Masters degree in Computational Molecular Biology from University of Manchester. I like to share my knowledge and my learning to different people.

Teaching Experience:

Tutored Kids at BCS App-a-thon - Guinness World Records Challenge
Senior Software Developer (UK Whitegoods)
- Training colleagues for the mobile app development
- Training colleagues for software development on PHP, HTML, JAVASCRIPT and other technologies
- Teaching experience of more than a year in computing

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun and interactive. I believe that to learn something is best by doing it. Problems comes in every field and best way to solve is by doing it. But, I always act a guide to show you the path for your solution but its your efforts that leads to results. I believe in teaching in a such a way that you are ready to face the challenge out in the real world.
And I always try to build a bond so that my students have relationship with me not only for now, but for future as well.

Also, if you have a project from university or college, I am happy to teach you in groups at discounted rate.

Personal Description:
I am currently a fifth year medical student at Imperial College London on the Graduate Entry programme. I have previously studied Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield, achieving a 2.1.

During my time as a student, my learning approach has changed drastically which has subsequently improved my grades throughout my time at university. Last year my examination results were in the top 10% of the cohort and I have received multiple prizes during my time at medical school - one for the overall best performance in an examination, and another for the third best performance. I would love to share this new learning approach with a tutee and hopefully improve their education experience.

I feel that my experience in education has equipped me with the skills needed to tutor, as well as my friendly and approachable manner. Due to my familiarity with applying to medical school, I am also able to offer assistance to prospective medical students in preparing for the UKCAT entrance exam, personal statement writing and interviews.

Teaching Experience:

For the past year I have been tutoring two students - one in degree level Biomedical Science and the other in Physiology. This mainly involved assisting students in revision for upcoming examinations, as well as guiding these students through assignments they found particularly difficult and medical school applications.

During my time at the University of Sheffield, I was a mentor for first year students joining the Biomedical Science course - this involved helping students academically as well as any other issues they had over the course of the year.

I also have experience working with children from the age of 4 and upwards, both as a play leader and in sports coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that the tutoring approach should be adapted for each student based on their needs and preferred learning style. This allows the student to make the most out of each session and progress in their studies.

In general, it is important to start with the basics and ensure that these are understood well. This would allow any issues to be identified early, which may be preventing the student from reaching their full potential. Once the basics are established, we can begin to work through the more challenging material.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified science teacher and mum of two young boys. I graduated in 2001 from Heriot Watt University with a physics degree and have been teaching since 2003.

Teaching Experience:

I recently moved back to Scotland from the South of England where I had taught Physics and Biology to GCSE level for the last 12 years. I also taught Chemistry and Geography to S1 and S2 equivalent (plus a bit of Chemistry to GCSE).
I have also done some tutoring both in England and here in Fife.

Tutoring Approach:

Working with the student to find out where they need help I will explain concepts that they find difficult using diagrams and examples and will ask the students to complete questions on that topic. I will also link topics and concepts together and ensure the basics are understood before moving onto more complex ideas.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly maths tutor local to Camborne, Falmouth and the surrounding area offering one-to-one tutoring to give extra support not often given in the classroom. I work full time as an design engineer, so I am available in the evenings and weekends. I teach up to GCSE level maths I have a 1st class masters degree in engineering. Whether you just need the occasional session to go over problem areas within the curriculum, or if you need regular study time, or even just help with homework, I am flexible depending on what the student needs. I can tutor at your home if you require, but I also offer tutoring from my own home, in a relaxed environment.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2 years experience working as a design engineer, applying my maths skills everyday. I have tutored on and off for 4 years teaching both maths and also offering guitar lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to try and understand what the student requires, and address these requirements specifically to give the best results. Should you need help on one aspect of the curriculum (people often shudder at the thought of algebra!), we can overcome the fear the y's and x's and master the topic. Should you need help keeping up in the classroom, or not understanding before the teacher moves on, we can take our time in the evening to make sure nothing has been missed. Should you need to get through an exam, we can make a study plan together to make sure you get the grade you want! I believe there is no 'one size fits all' to learning maths, and we can discuss all the details at your leisure.

Personal Description:
After spending some time working in the IT industry, including a spell being practically a one-man IT department for a small business, I discovered a love of - and I like to think a knack for - guiding and supporting the learning of others through teaching and training. Initially this was in the IT/Computer Science fields, but more recently I have diversified into Maths. Seeing the "lightbulb moment", when a learner finally conquers a problem, is an undoubted highlight of my job. Away from teaching, I am a music buff, and I also love to discover new places and meet new people.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching professionally as a college lecturer since 2007 and privately since 2014, teaching Maths at KS3 and GCSE level, and IT from KS3 to BTEC Level 3. While I love the 'cut and thrust' of a classroom, I find private tuition to be particularly rewarding - being able to devote more time to each learner can make a real difference to those who might otherwise get overlooked in a large class, and only serves to increase yet further the satisfaction in seeing them succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

I can readily adapt teaching styles to fit the needs of individual learners. I recognise the importance of having a Plan B and trying different approaches to suit different learning styles. Learner input is more than welcome on this. If you know what techniques work well for you, feel free to let me know!

I am also a firm believer that successful learning depends on four main factors - hard work, willingness, perseverance and self-belief. Students often have plenty of the first three, but may lack a little of the latter. I see my role as being about encouragement as well as teaching, so as well as offering support and guidance, I will also encourage you to have confidence in your ability. Believe that you CAN succeed, and it becomes much more likely that you WILL.
