Personal Description:
I am a caring and patient teacher . I develop good relationships with my pupils and care about their general well being. I adapt teaching aproaches to suit individual pupils to enable them to engage with the learning in a postive and supportive way. Children say they like my lessons and enjoy being tutored by me.
If you home school your child I can provide tutoring of a specific subject area fit around your timetable and the way your child prefers to learn.
I am also a parent of boys with SEN,(dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and adhd) and have a good knowledge of special education needs and the impact of these on teaching, learning and home life.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 5 years in the primary age range and really enjoy it. I have been privately tutoring for 6 years covering both all literacy areas and maths. I have up-to-date training in the new grammar, spelling and punctuation KS2 SAT's paper. In the area of spelling, I have current experience in the synthetic phonics approach. I have used this from the beginning stages in year 1, and also adapted teaching with the support of practical materials to pupils in KS2.
I can provide references from parents of current pupils.

I am able to support your child through the transition into secondary school, providing practical ideas to get ready and support during the first term to enable them to remain positive about their potential as a learner. I can also help advise on issues arising from difficulties in personal organisation from moving around the school to coping with having the right things in their bag on a daily basis.

I can tutor pupils through secondary education in English and English literature. I can support those who are experiencing dyslexic issues and need some support with homework.

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual taking into account both parents and the pupils views and needs. I provide suport to catch up on missed areas of basic skills, which is delaying learning, as well as being able to support targets set by school for the pupils individual progress. Through an initial consultation I seek to find out what the needs are and, with parents and pupil, plan suitable help to reach their goals. I share objectives with parents and pupils and give regular feed back to both to reach those goals. I belive it is important for all to see progress is being made. With parents and pupils permission, I like to make contact with their teacher to work with class teacher in identifing areas of difficulty and planning appropriate support. I find that this approach give the maximum benefit for all concerned.
The greatest difference I make to my pupils is to increase their confidence which in turn enables them to be more willing to take part in whole class sessions at school. Teachers of at least 2 of my pupils have remarked on the difference in attitude of the pupils who I have tutored.

Facts about tuition:

Your children's education is the one thing you should never settle for second best with, and with recent figures showing 40% of London student's having received Private Tuition at some point in the past - it is imperative you give your children the best chance in life by employing the best tutors.

I am not a part-time student, I am not a part-time graduate or even a part-time professional offering tutoring services. I am a qualified teacher heading up a Law Department in a Surrey Sixth Form College, and teach every day. Therefore I know the syllabus inside out, what the examiner expects, and the pedagogy of how student's learn most effectively. My prices reflect the Stirling and first-class standard of tuition offered.

My rates reflect results. I guarantee an improvement in grade and performance (sometimes evident after just several sessions.) My approach to tuition is very exam focused - especially when close to exams or resits. I don't waste time working through a chunky textbook - I work through past papers with students so they know what to expect, how to prepare, and how to get the most marks possible.

But actions speak louder than words:

One GCSE student joined me working at GCSE Mathematics Grade D/E, he hated maths and was dropping through his sets. Within only a few weeks he had jumped up a grade and by the end of the month he was achieving solid C's. Now 3 months on he is consistently achieving at GCSE grade B (and is now sitting GCSE Higher paper), he is top of his class, and realistically he will be aiming for grade A/A* in the Summer.

Another student joined me at the end of 2012. He was privately educated and was on the border of exclusion, his grades were also extremely low. Within only a month this student was off his report card, and his teachers had noticed a change in attitude and performance. Only a week ago, his report showed clear improvements across the board in both effort and achievement, and his core subjects showed a massive turn around. Behaviour had improved also.

Another student was working at GCSE Mathematics Grade D/E and he required a C in mathematics in order to get onto his College Course. The student had attended extra revision classes and had also been privately tutored but there was no significant change in his results with only 6 weeks until his exams. I tutored this student over the remaining 6 weeks. I focused on exam technique and actual specific exam content and the Student received his Grade C (Highest mark possible on Foundation paper) and was consequently accepted onto his course.

Another Privately educated student was on the Dyslexic spectrum and was struggling to meet the gateway grade C in his Mathematics GCSE. The parents had spent extensive amounts of money on private tuition and the school had put on many extra revision sessions - all to no avail. Within the first tuition slot, I had quickly relaised that the conventional teaching methods were having absolutely no effect. I had to customise my approach and actually found that getting the student to draw out the problems was the only way he could understand and remember them. Over a very short period of time (every Saturday for 5 weeks) the student easily hit the required standard and passed his GCSE maths with no issues.

Now about me:

I graduated from Nottingham Law School with a 1st Class Law Degree. My life in academia is solid: I have been a member of the "National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth" since the age of 11; achieved 11 GCSE's (inc. A* English Literature, A* English Language A* Mathematics A*A* Science) of which my English Literature GCSE Exam mark was amongst one of the top 5 marks Nationwide; achieved 5 AS Levels and 3 A Levels (AAA) to which my marks in English Literature and History were full marks. I am a motivational, electric and honest individual, who strives to achieve the best in both myself and those around me.

Furthermore, I always aim to be a positive role model in addition to tutor.

*For all tutees who undergo initial assessment and follow the recommended course of tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching A-Level Law, Business and Functional Skills (English and Maths GCSE) ,at a Surrey VI Form College. I am also head of the Law Department. This means I also have a current and enhanced CRB check. My past tutoring experience is extensive and spans over 7 years. My experience derives from the many sessions of private tuition I have provided over the years, tutoring at Degree level and predominantly GCSE level (mainly mathematics and English.)

For example, at the moment I am tutoring two brothers (State School) KS3/KS4/GCSE Mathematics who are in year 10 and 8 respectively. I also mentor and tutor a year 8 boy (Whitgift Private School) across the whole syllabus. The year 10 tutee jumped from achieving a grade D/E in the foundation Maths Paper to achieving 100% on the Foundation Papers (a Grade C) and later achieving a grade B in his intermediate Maths Paper (within 3 months.) We aim to achieve an A* on the higher paper for his actual exam. The Whitgift educated tutee was originally tutored 2 hours a week (originally intended for one month) but after clear improvements across the board (both academic and behavioural) this was doubled to 4 hours a week and has continued indefinitely.

Taking into account all my past (7 years worth) and present tutees - I have taught both genders at every age (8 - 18) across all my subject specialisms. This gives me extensive private tuition experience. This comes at a premium in our profession, and is generally more valued than even the most impressive educational background or academic achievements.

My most recent degree level tutee (mature student) describes me as providing a "unique, interesting and intuitive tutoring experience" and assures me from her experience that a tutor in the very heart of academia is all the more useful to a tutee than an old Cambridge professor completely out of touch with a modern syllabus. I also recently tutored and mentored a Saudi Prince through the first year of his Law Degree at Nottingham Law School and he stated he couldn't have done this "without me." I am used to teaching students who have English as a second language, students with learning difficulties (ADHD, Dyslexia) and also Gifted and Talented student.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a modern and pragmatic approach to academia, having recently left University, higher and secondary education. My understanding of what a pupil is "going through" makes my style of teaching all the more useful, as a good rapport between pupil and student will be built. Furthermore, my extensive revision material is the latest and the best. This is due to the fact my resources are second to none.

With regards to Degree level Law - I am happy to assist in any particular areas of difficulty that may span exam preparation or coursework. I am also happy to read through the latter and make recommendations. Having competed in several Nationally esteemed mooting competitions this is an area where I feel my tutoring excels.

I feel it is essential for both tutee and parent to see tangible results from tuition. My approach is very exam based, primarily as I feel it is the best way to learn, and that it increases exam confidence, but also that it offers a medium whereby improvements can be gauged. All my students have shown significant improvements and I operate on a 100% pass rate. I feel every student is capable of achieving full marks, and with the right structured approach and effort - they can and will be achieved.

Personal Description:
I am a family man and a maths teacher with over 10 years of experience of teaching including many years of tuition and preparation for SATs, GCSE and A-Level maths as well as helping with general maths tuition for younger secondary school pupils. I can also help with preparation for the maths part of the 11+ test - entrance exams for grammar or private schools for year 6 pupils. I have also had experience of tutoring IB Studies level maths. I provide tuition in the pupil's own house and am generally available late afternoon or evenings in the Sanderstead , Selsdon,Warlingham, Caterham,Purley, South Croydon and surrounding areas.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many pupils for Maths GCSE and A-level (Both pure and applied modules) as well as younger secondary aged pupils and years 5 & 6 from primary schools. I can provide help with exam preparations or more general support with secondary school maths.I have also helped prepare pupils for the maths part of 11+ exams. /entrance test for grammar or private schools. I am currently teaching full time in a private school and have over 10 years of teaching and private tuition experience. I have an excellent track record of results, my most recent class achieved a 90% A* rate at GCSE in 2013.

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor in the pupil's house at a mutually convenient time, ideally during weekdays after school or evening though I can sometimes do Saturday mornings. I am very punctual and reliable. I can provide materials such as past exam papers or text books if required. I have successfully tutored many pupils to achieve success in both GCSE and A-levels. I can also help with the maths part of common entrance exams and supply materials. My approach is to get the student to think things out for themselves and enable them to gain confidence as they realise that they can answer questions successfully . I encourage students to tell me if, after an explanation, they still are not sure, so that I can try to explain it in a different way.
Feedback / references from recent tutees :
"Thank you for supporting Alex over the last few months with his maths. He felt very confident with his recent statistics paper, which is encouraging. His confidence in maths has definitely grown over the last few months and he is busy revising for C3 and C4 with a positive approach."
Reference from previous A-level + GCSE tutee :"Andrew has been tutoring my son, Michael, for approximately 2 years . Andrew's input has been very helpful to Michael. Andrew is always pleasant and punctual.I would recommend Andrew as a maths tutor "
Michael went on to achieve an A at GCSE and I continued tutoring him for A-level.

Personal Description:
I am currently a student at Brunel University (London) reading for a PhD in Biological Sciences. Prior to this I completed my MSc in Molecular Medicine and Cancer Research; also at Brunel. My BSc is in Chemistry with a speciality in Biochemistry.
It is my ambition to become a lecturer at a university after completion of my PhD so that I can continue to share my knowledge and experience with others who are dedicated to learning.
I am 28 years old and I was born in Athens, Greece. I have lived in the UK for 3 years. I am professional, organised, supportive, friendly and approachable, and I find great satisfaction from helping people achieve their full potential.
I enjoy cycling, cooking, socialising and meeting new people.

Teaching Experience:

While at university in Greece I tutored friends and younger students regularly in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and English. I really enjoyed helping others with their learning, and this gave me a huge sense of fulfilment that what I was doing was truly worthwhile.
Since I moved to the UK I have not had much time to dedicate to tutoring, but now I have settled into my PhD I have decided to re-ignite my passion for teaching.
I have already been a tutor in the UK for over a year with students of all ages and levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe it is important to know what you are going to teach before you teach it. I invest time in my preparation and reading before the tutoring session. I make it a goal to learn something myself too because it's a learning experience for both the tutor and student. I do not fully rely on stock knowledge or things I have taught in the past, but keep myself constantly up to date.
It will be essential at the beginning of the sessions to identify the needs of the student which will include exploring their strengths and any challenges.
I will be dedicated to the students' success, and I will ensure that every minute I spend with the student is productive and worthwhile.
I will guarantee to facilitate sessions in a clear, concise, interesting and effective manner so that the student enjoys learning, and can achieve.
I will use a variety of resources to help the students learn and understand. I will not just rely on text books but have a range of materials and activities that will help the students reach their full potential.
I am supportive, friendly, welcoming and have a sense of humour. I believe that tutors need to, not only be professional, but responsive and helpful in order to encourage, inspire and build a good rapport with students (and where appropriate parents/guardians).
I am flexible, organised and patient. Lessons may not always go the way either party might expect, but this flexibility and patience allows me to change the direction of a lesson to ensure that the student is continually learning and developing.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my tutor profile and have found it useful. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions at all. I look forward to hearing from you. George.

Personal Description:
My name is Ed. I recently graduated from Durham University with 1st class honours in Maths and Physics. I achieved straight A result with six A-levels including Maths, Further Maths, German, Physics, Chemistry and Chinese. I am an experienced tutor and have previously tutored students from a variety of schools and institutions. I am very patient and my primary focus is to help you achieve your goals and objectives.

I currently work in the finance industry. I also work as a private tutor for two top private tutoring groups in London. I am flexible and can travel to you. I am available in the evenings on weekdays and anytime on the weekends.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I can provide you references upon request.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor, London, July 2010 - Present
I have tutored over 5,000 hours and have taught a variety of subjects at different levels from primary schools to A-levels. I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Chinese. I also provide academic advice as well as interviewing techniques for entering into top schools and universities in the UK.

University Marker, Department of Mathematics, Durham University, October 2009 - May 2010
I mentored second year Maths undergraduates at Durham University. I have learned to work through the arguments and thought processes of others and give constructive feedback.

Sixth Form Tutor, Framwellgate Sixth Form College, Durham, October 2006 - June 2009
I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years. I helped all of my tutees achieve more than what they were initially targeting to achieve. I also learned to prepare teaching materials and adopt various teaching methods.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is to go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students to work on more specific and challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are constantly motivated and encouraged in order to self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

I also strive to make lessons as interactive as I can. I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name's Chris and I provide a guitar tuition service in and around Worcester. I offer both acoustic and electric guitar lessons for beginner and intermediate students of all ages. I teach a variety of styles and can tailor lessons to your own musical interests so that you're not only learning the music you love, but developing other essential skills in a relevant musical context.

Teaching Experience:

I have 12 years experience playing guitar and hold a joint-honours degree in music.

Tutoring Approach:

In addition to teaching you how to play the guitar, I can offer expertise in other areas of music. Having spent three years studying music at university, and being a writer myself, I can assist you with your own compositions, arrangements and songs. Likewise I can help with the sometimes precarious art of accompanying yourself as a singer! The focus of lessons is up to you, though equally if you're unsure of exactly what you'd like to learn I can offer plenty of options. As a patient and considerate individual my lessons tend to be relaxed but highly productive.

Guitar lessons can be arranged at times to suit. I'm generally available on weekday afternoons and evenings but feel free to contact me to check my current availability. I teach at my family home in the Barbourne area of central Worcester but I am also willing to travel within Worcester and to nearby surrounding areas of Worcestershire. For this service I charge an additional fee to cover the cost of transport and travel time, this is 5 within Worcester and 10 for Droitwich and Malvern.

My rate is 15 per half hour, however longer lessons are perfectly possible. For more information, or to arrange a lesson please feel free to contact me.

Personal Description:
I'm an experienced foreign languages teacher based in London, and an Italian native speaker. I hold a BA in Modern Languages (summa cum laude) from the Ca' Foscari University of Venice, and an MLitt in English Literature (with Distinction in the Dissertation) from the University of St Andrews. In the past, I've lived and worked for long periods both in Spain and in the United Kingdom.
In the past, I attended a secondary school with a strong focus in Classics, and I'm therefore able to provide tutoring in Latin for first- and second-year high school students.
I'm happy to teach to any student of Latin, Italian, Spanish or English as passionate about languages and travelling as I am!

Teaching Experience:

After graduating from St Andrews, I've taught Italian to international students at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice, as well as tutoring Intermediate English for students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
During my internship in Spain, at a social services centre, I was teaching English to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. I've also taught Advanced English to adult learners in a private school.

Tutoring Approach:

I am able to adapt to the particular needs of every student and parent in case it is requested, otherwise I work with my own teaching materials, first assessing the student and then tailoring each class on her pace and progress.
