Personal Description:
Hello,
I`ve been tutoring Mathematics at all levels since 1996. Have an outstanding record of getting students top grades. I encourage a hard work ethic and discipline.

For A'level and GSCE students, material is taught as per their exam board requires, with plently of emphasis on the importance of past paper revision.

For younger children I specialise in Vendic Mathematics, subtraction via addition, estimate and adjust, etc. As well as applying the story book method to assist a childs memory techniques.

All students are taught about goal setting principles, motivating themselves and not settling for real and achievable standards.

Teaching Experience:

Have been teaching one-to-one since 1996. Software Engineer by trade.

Tutoring Approach:

Secret to my teaching style is to deliver the subject in a manner that appeals to the student.
Using examples that are relavent to the student's interest are key to understanding.

Personal Description:
Hi,
my name is Simona, from Milano, I am a highly responsible and dedicated professional Italian teacher with 10 years working experience.

I graduated at Faculty of Literature and Philosophy and specialized in Italian for Foreigners Center-CIS (Diploma)
University of Bergamo, which is equivalent to DITALS

Adaptable and open minded with good manner and good communication skills. A very good team member. I am also an artist and I enjoy the challenges of new opportunities.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Italian to immigrant adults for CGIL (Italian Trade Union) and to foreigner young people (7-17 years old) in public schools in Italy. I have been working in London as an Italian teacher for the last 4 years for some private Language Schools and I am now teching also to ACL Adult Learning Surrey council. I have gained experience in various contexts: Classes, One to One, Italian for Business and specific topics such as art and cuisine.
I can provide one-to-one and group courses in all level.

Tutoring Approach:

Teach­ing is a cre­ative job and this is why I enjoy it so much. It is very impor­tant to me to pre­pare my lessons carefully, so that they are inter­est­ing, dynamic, fun and of course tai­lored to the needs of each of my stu­dents. I like to use a vari­ety of teach­ing mate­ri­als such as books in Ital­ian, Ital­ian songs, games and videos. I like to pre­pare my own mate­r­ial and exer­cises and I love to invent fun and enter­tain­ing role-play games. I always make sure stu­dents feel con­fi­dent about their skills and their abil­ity to speak Italian."

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and motivated Tutor, and a trained English Teacher with a PGCE from Strathclyde University. I have a working knowledge of the new curriculum for excellence and qualifications.

I am also a professional playwright and I have an Undergraduate in Scottish/English Literature and Language and a Postgraduate in Scottish Studies (Literature, Language, History and Theatre), both form the University of Glasgow.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring English one to one for over 15 years, and drama tutoring for longer. I previously ran a theatre company which itself has strong ties with education (workshops) and teacher training (using Drama as a tool to educate), and am kept up to date and involved in the curriculum and new teaching strategies; I am fully disclosed.

Tutoring Approach:

I absolutely love tutoring and am always moved by seeing the difference the support I provide makes. I have a high success rate and the majority of my pupils reach their desired achievement goal. As a testament to this, most of my pupil business is referral based.

My approach is pupil-lead, always, moving at a pace and level that suits the individual pupil. I am friendly, motivating and always supportive, as well as honest. I am here to help you achieve the very best you can achieve.

I tailor my approach to each student, as the learning styles are so vastly different for pupil to pupil.

I cover the English curriculum for excellence, Nationals 1-6, which perviously was Standard Grade and Higher.

Critical Essay writing - structure, analysis and evaluation, expression and vocabulary.
Textual Analysis skills and exam revision.
Personal and creative essay writing - imagery, structure, characterisation, expression.
Close Reading - Language analysis and evaluation (how techniques are used and what the effect is).
Discursive and persuasive writing, appropriate language, research skills, structure.
Exam revision - organisation and practice skills.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am in my forties and I live in Worthing. I specialise in teaching English as a foreign language. I welcome teaching both individuals and small groups with everyday, educational or business English.

I enjoy travelling, meeting new people and learning about other countries. I have just returned from teaching English in Japan for four years, which I loved.

I also have experience working in both education and business in the UK. I was a primary school teacher for eight years and worked in insurance for 11 years.

Teaching Experience:

-I taught Keys Stage 1 and 2 for eight years in an East London primary school. The majority of which did not speak English regularly at home.
-I carried out training on technical insurance issues as part of my job with the insurance company.
-I taught English in two of Japan's well known English conversation schools (ECC and AEON). I worked with students ages ranging from 18 months to 70+ at all levels from beginner to advanced. I also did some work in a few Japanese kindergartens and some summer relief work in a local Worthing language school (CES).

Tutoring Approach:

I like lessons to be fun and the students to feel relaxed. The needs of the students comes first as everyone is different.

After an initial assessment ,I agree with the tutee a lesson progress plan. The lessons will have a clear goal and will relate to real life wherever possible.

Please note that all lessons with children should be at their home with a responsible adult present or available.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£18 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£18 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£18 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a well-educated graduate who has previously tutored Flute, Mathematics and Science.

I have also previously supported disabled students with their studies - so please do not hesitate to contact me if this is causing you worry.

Due to the need to get to know a student and their requirements, I do not charge for the first hour of my time - although this is for 'fact-finding' and not a tuition session as such.

If this is your first time hiring a private tutor and you would like more information, or have any other questions please send me a message through this service and I will happily respond by email, usually within 2-3 days.

Teaching Experience:

I have over a decade's experience teaching all subjects at primary level in addition to Mathematics and Sciences to A-Level.

I also have previous experience teaching mathematics and science from early years (5yrs old) to Secondary age and beyond including tutoring for both GCSE and A-Level examinations.

I am also first-aid trained by Wallace Cameron (First Aid at Work) and have a post-graduate leadership qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

I work under the assumption that all children and adults have the ability to succeed, and have high expectations of them. Having said this I am fully aware that a great many people have difficulty with some subjects, especially mathematics. I aim to remove the fear or maths, and instill understanding rather than teaching by rote. If you are unsure as to what your child/children would benefit from learning I am quite happy to assess them against the National Curriculum and dependent on the total number of hours you wish to book, I do not normally charge for this.

Please note that although parents are always quite welcome to stay for any session, this is not always productive as it can make some children nervous - although for flute tuition it is recommended that a parent/guardian stay for the first lesson, as this lesson includes teaching a child how to stand with the instrument, if the parent is aware of the correct position they can help their child at home and greatly speed learning. If a lesson is occurring at my home I do of course have tea/coffee facilities and somewhere you can wait for your children!

I am willing to travel to your home for lessons if this is easier for you, although an extra charge may apply to cover my time and expense although we will of course agree this prior to undertaking the session.

An hour long session to discuss your needs and talk about what you want to get out of private tutoring is offered free of charge to new students.

Personal Description:

Teaching Experience:

I have three years of working with primary children in both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire schools, as well as teaching in two secondary schools in North Yorkshire in 2015. I have been teaching Mathematics in a Derbyshire secondary school since June 2015 across all three key stages. Happy to tutor children ranging from KS2 to KS5 including college students studying A-Level Core Maths or Functional Skills.

Fully CRB checked.
Strong mathematics background.
Happy to travel up to 10 miles - prefer not to tutor online.

Tutoring Approach:

● Encourage challenges and enjoy teaching maths through interactive sessions with a variety of resources.

● Explain topics to ensure pupils fully understand the concepts before tackling book work questions, and even create my own worksheets and examples to bridge any gaps.

● Understand the curriculum of both primary and secondary mathematics very well and take a calm, relaxed approach to teaching.

● 100% committed to making learning as easy as possible and adapt teaching to any style to meet all personal requirements.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Music Tutor with a B.A. in Music Education from the RSAMD and a Dip.ABRSM in Piano Teaching.
I offer one to one lessons in Piano, Violin, Singing, Keyboard, Viola and Music Theory as well as fully understanding the new National 4/5 and Higher qualifications and I can provide tutoring for both the practical and listening elements of these.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over 12 years now, and have provided private instrumental lessons in the North Lanarkshire area for 10 years. I have over 60 pupils currently, and frequently put students through both SQA and ABRSM exams with an exceptionally high pass rate.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to Tutoring is student-led, and I will devise and implement individual learning plans to suit each pupil. Usually this will include a goal of passing an exam, but the goal we work to could be a concert, a music festival, a particular piece you would like to be able to play or just wanting to improve in a certain aspect of technique.

Personal Description:
Even though academia has always been a passion of mine, I also engage in various other activities such as socialising, reading and playing sports. Most would describe me as an enthusiastic, friendly and intuitive character.

Teaching Experience:

Having tutored various students growing up in Economics and Maths, I have taught at GCSE and A Level standard. Additionally, I have had classroom experience from volunteering as an English and Maths teacher at a school in Accra, Ghana.

Tutoring Approach:

One of my main reasons to start tutoring is because of my natural flair for academia, especially for the aspects that many find difficult such as the revision and examination process. I have always been described as helpful and would naturally find myself drawn towards helping others with their academic difficulties. Knowing that this was a passion of mine, tutoring seemed to be a natural course for my career.
