Personal Description:
Hi,

As a mother of two and in my career experience so far, I have learned to be patient, supportive and encouraging with children, young people and inexperienced, unconfident adults. I'm a warm, approachable person with a calm, unflappable demeanour and a good sense of humour. I have a BA (Hons) degree in English and Media and Communications Studies and an up-to-date DBS (CRB) check.

After over 10 years of working in television as a script editor, script reader and occasional writer, I moved onto work in schools, my most recent job being in a mixed secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant. My creative background means I have a strong emphasis on reading, writing and communication skills. While working at the BBC (EastEnders) in 2005, I was made redundant, and my husband and I decided to turn a negative experience into a positive one so we spent about six months travelling to places including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and India. We returned home when I became pregnant with our first daughter. For about two years I freelanced from home, writing and editing for a couple of travel websites and reading and reporting on scripts for an independent TV company.

Once I became a mother myself, my priorities changed and I gave up my television career to work with young people - something I find rewarding, challenging and inspiring on a daily basis. I feel great satisfaction in working with children and helping them to achieve all that they can be - I enjoy their company and find their enquiring minds and personal growth and development fascinating. Of course I work very well with adults too and currently tutor two writers; one published in Europe, the other an inspiring novelist.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students ranging from Year 3 to 11+ preparation, from pre-GCSE and GCSE English support to A level Film and Media Studies. Some of my students have additional education needs relating to dyslexia and autism. I have successfully helped GCSE and A Level students to gain the grades they needed to develop their education further. My previous A Level students are now enjoying their university courses and my GCSE students are now studying A Levels and Further Education courses, as per their target. I also tutor adults, mostly in creative writing, and international students, in learning to speak and understand English.

At the moment I am teaching students from Year 3 through to A level stage, as well as two adults for creative writing. I am also teaching English to two French teenagers who are visiting for a week with their family, for the sole purpose of receiving English tuition.

I have worked and volunteered at five schools now, including one primary school and one first school. Most of my school experience has been working for the Support department, focusing on children with Special Educational Needs. Some of the pupils have behavioural issues or physical disabilities, but most of them have learning difficulties such as dyslexia, ADHD and autism. I worked with these children within the mainstream classroom environment, offering them encouragement and support and helping them to understand the teachers' instructions. I also occasionally worked on a one-to-one basis with them away from the classroom, helping them to focus without any distractions.
At the primary school, I supported Year 2 and Year 3 children with reading and DT. This was done on either a one-to-one basis, or in small groups. Currently, I volunteer once a week in a Reception class, where I help children with their reading.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a calm, supportive approach and begin with assessing the student to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie. Then I tailor their sessions accordingly. I break up the sessions into different segments using fun activities where appropriate to help with their learning process. I believe that children should find learning stimulating and interactive, and not feel that they are just being 'talked at'. I am open to different types of teaching, and particularly with students who need extra support, I like to try to think 'outside of the box'.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated Teaching Professional, with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults., interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals, as well as communicating inside the family.

My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.

I tend to focus in improving spoken fluency and listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition as part of the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.

I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results of good communication between both parties and learner assessment throughout the course.

Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and supporting the students in improving their skills.

I can ensure fast and excellent results.

Personal Description:
I have just completed my second year at The University of Nottingham studying Physics. I am very passionate about maths and science, and would love the opportunity to help improve the experience of these subjects for other people. I think summer can be a very valuable time for extra tuition to either get the subject up to speed or up to date in time for the coming academic year.

I studied my GCSEs at Archbishop Holgate's School and attained 11 A*s and 1 A. I then continued my education at York College where I achieved an A* for Further Maths, As in Physics and Maths, a B for chemistry and an A at AS Level Philosophy.

During summer, I enjoy returning home to York with my family and like to keep myself busy. In my free time, I enjoy reading novels (particularly books in the fantasy genre), playing the guitar and piano, and playing tennis.

Teaching Experience:

I have had a couple of tutees, and have really loved the experience. It has been both challenging and rewarding, and I have picked up some good approaches to teaching various topics. My experience has also highlighted the different styles that are necessary to best engage with the individual tutee.

In addition to this, in 2011 I took a 3 month skiing course which enabled me to become a qualified CSIA (Canadian Ski Instructor's Alliance) Level 2 Instructor. During this course, under the guidance of an instructor, we would practise delivering lessons to each other. There were around 35 people on my course, and so I learnt how to tailor my teaching approach to the individual. I have also shadowed two actual ski lessons, and in both cases (one with a group of around 6, the other with just one person) I was allowed to take charge, which was an incredibly valuable experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I learnt a lot from my aforementioned experiences about the best way to approach teaching, which I think would be transferable to any subject. The way in which people learn greatly varies, and so I always try to get a sense of the person before deciding on the best approach to take. Where I can, I try to be creative, as this will make the lesson more interesting for both the student and myself. I would try to find out the interests and motivations of the student, and apply this to my teaching style. Particularly with a subject like physics, you can apply the underlying concepts to almost anything, which can help to bring challenging concepts to life.

Personal Description:
I am a family man, married 10 years to my wife Mel, with 3 beautiful daughters. I have been tutoring in the South Wales area since 1992 after graduating in Chemical Engineering with 2nd (Hons) Degree from University of Glamorgan. My hobbies include wordwide travel, Triathlon, Motorcycles/Cars and anything to do with science and maths.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating in Summer 1992 with an Honours Degree in Chemical & Process Engineering from the University of Glamorgan, I set up my tutoring business to assist parents & pupils with examination preparation, who felt they were being let down by the educational system.

I worked as an examiner for the WJEC from 1997 to 2002 marking Maths papers.

I currently teach on a 1-2-1 basis or in small groups, usually {but not exclusively} in the privacy of the pupils home, in the following subjects:-

* Key stages 1 to 4 {GCSE} in Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Engineering, Design and Technology, Electronics.

* 'A' Levels {GCE} in Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics

* BTEC Engineering, Nursing & Health Care courses, Paramedics, Sports Science.

* Degrees in Engineering - Chemical, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Aerospace, and Nursing.

* UKCAT Entrance exams to Medicine and Dental school.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly prepare students for examinations using past paper practise to build up their self confidence and develop the ability to read and digest each exam question.

During the interim term time, I conduct 'student led' lessons, where each of my pupils is able to tell me what they want to learn; whether it be new material, homework assistance or revision of old topics.

I structure my lessons this way because I teach many different students of varying abilities, who are studying at different levels and using different exam boards e.g. WJEC, OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL.

Personal Description:
Oxford Engineering Masters graduate, providing engagement tutoring for all ages and abilities.

A Levels Mathematics (A), Physics (A), Chemistry (A)
GCSE's: 11 GCSE's: A* - A

Teaching Experience:

Since leaving university I have spent 5 years teaching students over a range of different abilities and pride myself on being approachable, as well as making the lessons engaging. I am happy to work around any curriculum, and to specific student needs.

Tutoring Approach:

Included free of charge in the first lesson is a lengthy discussion (with parents if required) to understand the students strengths and weaknesses and to establish a clear programme. This structured approach will be followed throughout; using materials from a variety of sources to ensure that maximum benefit is achieved during the lessons.

I prepare for all lessons to ensure that the time spent with the student is as productive as possible. In addition I pride myself of exam technique, which I believe plays a key role to success in maths and science.

Personal Description:
I am a Shakespeare fanatic with six years' classroom experience. I enjoy reading a wide range of fiction and non-fiction and became a teacher to share my passion for language. Now that I have a young family, I have decided to indulge my love of teaching outside the classroom to fit around raising my children. I keep in touch with my former colleagues to stay abreast of the rapidly developing education system.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in Grammar schools in Kent, outer-London schools and a wide variety of institutions in Hong Kong. My subject knowledge covers English, Drama and Theatre Studies, and Classical Civilisation (the latter subjects are very useful for approaching English texts in innovative ways). I am most familiar with the new GCSE specification for AQA, but can happily adapt to other exam boards. I am a GCSE English Literature examiner for some boards also. I have experience tutoring 11-18 year olds and have worked with students with a variety of special needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I create personalised programmes to fit the needs of individual students and frequently adapt these to incorporate new texts and resources to keep the lessons fresh and relevant. My sessions tend to focus on assessment technique and start with short focused activities, building the skills necessary to complete longer written tasks designed to mimic the conditions of examinations. Alternatively, I can support students with their class work more directly, assisting with homework and helping with clarity of expression in other subjects too.

I aim for students to enjoy our sessions and feel comfortable asking questions; my main goal is to help them improve and I can only do that through honest discussion of issues. I do expect high standards and find that my pupils meet my expectations and gain grades they are proud of, when they apply themselves. Confidence is the key to learning and it is in this area that my students make the swiftest progress, which enables them to access the top grades and enjoy their increasing capability in a subject that at first seemed inaccessible.

For adult learners, I offer programmes that reflect each individuals' interests in language development and present activities in a variety of ways to keep lessons lively and relevant. I find that striking the balance between grammatical accuracy and colloquial usage allows second language students to feel much more confident interacting with native speakers.

I like to have a good rapport with tutees' parents as I feel that learning is a joint initiative. Testimonials from former clients are available upon request. My fee includes all resources (apart from set texts) and the loan of study guides and other useful materials as required.

Personal Description:
Juan is a rare artist with a great deal of intellect and an in depth understanding of piano, composition and music technology. He has been linked to what he describes as a "marvelous instrument: the piano" since the tender age of three. Eight years later, he made his fist concert appearance in his hometown Estancia Santa María de La Armonía. Ever since, he has been a regular performer throughout the theater halls of Argentina, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.


Teaching Experience:

8 years of one to one tutoring.
I have prepared students for all ABRSM and Trinity College exams including GRADES and DIPLOMAS with 100% success rate.
I also train other teachers entering for Masters at RCM and RAM. I believe in a modern approach to music learning that's why I encourage my students to develop a their own taste for music. I also give my students the option of start making their own videos here in my studio where I have all the necessary equipment.

Tutoring Approach:

Juan believes that people connect to music at different times of their lives. As you watch him work, it is stunning to observe how he can be involved in the details and never lose sight of the big picture. His approach to piano pedagogy is very unique, one which simultaneously combines music technology, playing, reading and writing.
​
As a piano tutor, his greatest challenge is to instigate a hidden and deep rooted spark within each of his protégés. He believes that everyone should learn at their own pace, and accommodates this by providing tailored programmes. He has been very successful in preparing students for the ABRSM and Guildhall Trinity Exams.

Personal Description:
I was schooled at Gordonstoun.

At the University of Glasgow I was awarded prizes, medals and a bursary for coming first in my class in both Maths and Natural Philosophy (Physics).

Currently married, I have an adult daughter from a previous marriage who lives in Australia.

I migrated to Australia in 1986, built an eco home and planted thousands of trees.

In 1989 I became a Chartered Engineer through the British Computer Society.

Outside of work my interests include Sailing, Skiing, Dancing and Family History.

Teaching Experience:

I first taught 'O' level maths in 1968.

For the past 10 years I've been a lecturer and tutor on a masters level business programme focused on sustainability.

Tutoring Approach:

I support and encourage tutees to figure answers out for themselves. This is an essential skill both for self directed learning and for life. I also use this approach in marking.

I set homework tasks which I expect to be completed by the agreed date. In return you can expect assignments to be marked and returned by an agreed date.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am 21, live in Hull and have been playing the drums for around 5 years. I am currently studying Music Performance at university and have just finished my first year in Bristol. I have lots of experience playing live with various artists and bands. I play many styles and appreciate all music as an art. I mainly play pop, rock and metal but am well grounded in jazz, latin, reggae, drum and bass, blues, hip hop and funk.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching; I started off doing it voluntarily to assist friends but the interest grew and I began getting more and more into it teaching from my home on my acoustic kit. I keep growing as a player and as a teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very passionate about teaching as I believe a good player doesn't make a good teacher. I believe in breaking things down to the simplest level to give the student the best foundation possible. I teach everything from beginner to advanced, all in accordance to want the student wants mostly, then I will create an appropriate plan for he/she. Many students (myself included) have been left disappointed by the lack of passion shown by teachers in whatever subject, which is why I wanted to start teaching in the first place

Personal Description:
I'm currently studying History of Art with Philosophy and Arabic at UCL university in London. My passion has always been Art whether studying it or creating Art, or visiting art exhibitions in London. What most inspires me is the way that Art is rooted in a deep historical tradition of culture, style and politics. Two of my paintings from A level are currently displayed on the Saatchi Art Gallery website. I love teaching too; sharing my knowledge, past experience and helping others younger than me succeed confidently and reach their potential in their upcoming exams. I've had work experience in various Art/Fashion based fields.

Teaching Experience:

At school I have enjoyed encouraging and guiding younger students with their stressful art coursework as an Art and Product Design mentor and a Textiles prefect. I have also tutored Maths and English to family friends for their 11+ entrance exams and GCSE exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy teaching, I'm very patient and open minded. My approach to tutoring is conversational in a relaxed atmosphere. I understand how stressful Art or Textiles coursework can be as I've been there myself countless times throughout secondary school and sixth form. My approach to teaching Art is based on what the student wants. I can be their "second teacher" and guide them through it, help them with ideas or help with artist research/analysis. I can also teach them techniques in painting or various other media as it's important to experiment and show different skills. We can visit exhibitions. I'd give them insight and suggest which artists to look at. I have a lot of my old art coursework to look through which may help.

For subjects like History, Religious Studies and Maths, I cover a topic/area per lesson. I can go past the hour if I had to with no charge as I don't like stopping abruptly without finishing the topic. I have various ways of teaching History. I can explain and help understand the topics through Powerpoint presentations, I'd provide resources, past notes and tips on how to approach, write and structure an essay. I like to give short tasks/exercises for the next lesson to keep track of their progress and understanding.

For English, I can help children work towards their 11+ entrance exams. For GCSE, I'd be useful in helping them with texts such as, 'Of Mice and Men' or studying/analysing poetry. I have notes/essays that could help too.
