Personal Description:
I am a former Head of Science with over 10 years' teaching experience. I enjoy teaching and tutoring and would like to concentrate on tutoring alone for the foreseeable future.

I offer solid, comprehensive, support in Science and Maths for all the English Examination boards - including the International Baccalaureate. I can (and do) also enter/administer/teach/ and prepare students for GCSE/A-level Science, and Maths, examinations - privately (outside of the school environment). This service could be invaluable to students with either: special needs; want more control over their own education, or more simply just need a second chance to achieve their aspirations.

Teaching Experience:

Over ten years' experience teaching biology, chemistry and physics to A-level. Also, about seven years' experience teaching mathematics to A-level and about five years' experience working with special needs students - particularly Asperger syndrome.

Plus, over three years tutoring experience in science and mathematics - from SAT level to A-level.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to work with the knowledge students already possess and build from there: expect friendly learning targets, pre-tests, progress tests and honest progress reports on strengths and weakness and plenty of homework.

I am very calm, patient and supportive with my students. My lessons are structured to provide exactly what you need to know, well explained, and tailored to meet each student's specific needs: includes a variety of hands on material and varied learning styles supported with after lesson homework.

I provide good support with English and Maths literacy along with plenty of advice/hands-on experience with structuring/answering examination questions - to get students solidly prepared for their examinations.

Personal Description:
Hello, I have a BSc (Physics / Chemistry), MSc PhD (organic chemistry) and a PGCE (Physics). I am currently working in an OFSTED outstanding school in Norfolk as a Teacher of Physics / Chemistry (A Level). I have a good knowledge of current specifications including AQA and OCR.

I have also been a Research Scientist for a number of years and teaching undegraduates and postgraduates has been part of my routine. I have also worked as a secondary school teacher for three years abroad, teaching Physics and Chemistry up to A-Levels. I am passionate about teaching science to the young and have hence been involved in a lot of outreach activities (clarifying NMR, visible Spectroscopy, Mass Spectroscopy, ect) at the UEA during my time there.

Teaching Experience:

5 Years teaching experience in general science at GCSE / A Level
8 Years underraduate / postgraduate supervision at University level

Tutoring Approach:

One on one teaching is certainly different from classroom teaching and I like to use this opportunity to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a particular student. Each of my sessions are planned thoroughly with appropriate activities and teaching resources. Having sound basics for me is important for students to progress further and I therefore like to brush up on them from time to time depending on the needs of the particular student.

Personal Description:
A professional and experienced tutor, I've studied maths and physics at degree level. I've considerable experience of teaching in colleges, summer schools, within companies and in one-to-one sessions, with students of all ages and abilities. In addition to this, I spent over a decade delivery training to corporate professionals.

Teaching Experience:

I've worked with students of all ages from 5 to 75 and across a variety of subjects and levels. What I've enjoyed most is seeing the progress all my students have made, but particularly those with learning challenges - whether it's to do with subject knowledge, concentration or behaviour. I've found that infinite patience is often the answer!

Tutoring Approach:

Absolutely key to tutoring is flexibility and adaptability. Everybody is different and learns in different ways. Each session starts out with specific topics and goals in mind, but these can - and often do - change as the session progresses and other priorities come to light. My challenge is to find a way to achieve those goals that will suit the student, taking into account what they already know, and how they best absorb and retain new information.

And finally, although I'm not there to become the student's friend, it's nevertheless essential that I build a rapport with them quickly to foster a supportive yet friendly learning environment. This helps ensures the sessions are as productive as possible.

Personal Description:
Science and engineering is my passion. If you are struggling with science I will make it easier!
I am a PhD at the 2nd year working at the Materials Department of the Imperial College of London. My main work is on advanced ceramics and metals. Since I started the PhD I have expanded my work with lab tutorials and supervising a few master's students with their thesis project. I like to help people understanding complex topics making them easier and practical.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor when I was an undergraduate and I liked the experience. Thus, as I started my PhD at the Imperial College I looked for other teaching experience. I have been registered as Graduate Teaching Assistant after attending a course on teaching at the Imperial. This allowed me to work as Lab Demonstrator last year. I will be an assistant this autumn term too.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to know the subject program in advance and to discuss the weak points of the student about it. Therefore, we can understand how much needs to be done and on what we need to focus our work.
My personal approach on study has always been towards the understanding of the subject more than merely memorize it. Often this may look difficult, but almost everything can be made simpler with practical examples and once understood it is unlikely to forget it. Hence, I tend to transfer the same approach, which worked so well with me, to the tutees.

The tutoring is possible at the Imperial College or at your home.
I am available for tuition mainly in the evenings, usually after 5 pm. However, other suitable times may be arranged.
