Personal Description:
I have a first-class honours degree in History and a Master's degree in American Studies (History) from the University of Manchester. I wrote my Master's thesis on the negotiation of Arab and African American Muslim multiple identities through Islamic hip-hop in the post-9/11 period.

I'm a Marketing Executive at Capital Properties and manage marketing and communications for a number of high-profile commercial clients including Spinningfields and Old Granada Studios. I also work as a copywriter for Union Street Media Arts. I volunteer for Saheli (an Asian women's refuge) and I'm a mentor on the University of Manchester Gold Mentoring programme.

I love to read, write, paint and travel and I have a keen interest in hip-hop studies, music activism and human rights.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years' experience as a tutor having worked as a peer tutor at Bridgewater State University in the USA in 2008 and having since worked as a GCSE English tutor for the Tutor Trust (2011-12). At the Tutor Trust I delivered small group tuition and large group revision sessions in Manchester's disadvantaged schools and sixth form colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a structured approach to tutoring and develop a clear plan with objectives for the student and I to reach together. I work at the student's own pace and provide bespoke tuition which is tailored to the student's needs and learning style. My sessions are clear, engaging and stimulating.

My tutoring style is to facilitate rather than teach. I guide the student in the right direction and provide additional support with study skills, time management and organisation. Ultimately I encourage the student to build confidence in his/her own ability.

I also provide proofreading services for undergraduate, Master's and PHD theses. I check grammar and spelling to a very high standard and offer in-depth feedback on analysis/argument, structure, knowledge/understanding, sources and referencing, and style and presentation to help students achieve the grade that they are aiming for.

Personal Description:
I am a Master of Arts graduate of Choreography and a Bachelor of Arts graduate of French language and literature. My mother tongue is greek but I am also a native speaker in english because I was born in Australia. I live in London and don't mind travelling within London. I am friendly, communicative and very outgoing so feel free to contact me for any tuitions :)

Teaching Experience:

Teaching is one of my favourite activities because it is a way to share my knowledge with young people and also with adults. I have been teaching various subjects since 2006 which include dance, french language, greek language and english language. I always have my classes organised to achieve the goals that my students have in a specific amount of time, not time-wasters please:) I am currently a Visiting Lecturer in Universities.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring for me must have a methodology and a structure. It always depends on the needs of the student, the goals and the time available. As long as you know your aim, we can work around it together.

Personal Description:
From an early age I have been extremely enthusiastic about mathematics and since leaving education, and before I chose to pursue a career in education, I have been fascinated by learning and problem solving. I am currently a teacher in a new school in Hackney, East London. The college is for 14-18 year olds so I specialise in GCSE and A-Level maths teaching. We cater for a range of different backgrounds and abilities which requires the staff to have a wide ranging skill-set. I have previously taught for 5 full years, including 2 years at a 4-18 international school, and have 3 years teaching experience in the UK. My previous school was an independent international school. In all my years as a teacher I have taught GCSE classes and have come to have a sound knowledge of both AQA and Edexcel curriculums. I am also aware that GCSEs serve 2 purposes - one to gain a specific skill set and acquire subject knowledge, the other to achieve a prestigious and important qualification. I have worked in business for several years since completing a maths masters degree at Leeds University. As a relatively new teacher I have a fresh perspective on current barriers to learning and misconceptions within my chosen subject.

Teaching Experience:

1 year working in East London, 2 years overseas in the Dominican Republic (students are 95% native Spanish speakers), 3 years in England, 1 year PGCE training incorporating placements at 2 schools in Louth (North East Lincolnshire), trained at Lincoln BGUC. I am currently curriculum leader for maths at my college and have been acting head of department at my previous school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the key to learning is presenting a new topic in a way that the learner can engage with best. I would aim to break a complex problem down into smaller more manageable parts. Maths is a subject where each new concept is just a collection of previously learnt skills or techniques used in a specific way. I would visit the house of the tutee under the supervision of a parent. Also, if acceptable, I would try to involve a parent in the tuition process so that they can work with the tutee at a later date, if they thought it would help. I am happy to set additional work to be finished between tuition sessions, if the parent and tutee consent to this. I aim to not only help the tutee in acquiring the grade they want but also to improve their confidence in maths and help inspire them to enjoy the subject more.

Personal Description:
Experienced and highly qualified tutor, holding a PhD in economics and an LSE economics degree, who specialises in helping university students.

I have a degree in Economics from the London School of Economics (LSE), a Masters in Economics of the European Union from the College of Europe in Bruges, and a PhD in economics from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I am therefore qualified to teach economics (any subject) and European studies.

Teaching is an activity that I deeply enjoy, and for which I have great enthusiasm. The feedback which I received from students I taught in the past was very positive, and has further increased my desire to continue teaching. In particular, I was told that my teaching had inspired students, and had made complex subjects appear simple and interesting.

Teaching Experience:

I have an extensive experience of providing private tuition in economics to university students (for example, I have taught students from the LSE and UCL, among several other institutions). Courses include: economics; microeconomics; macroeconomics; economics of the EU; economics of the public sector; industrial economics; game theory; political economy; economic history; EU studies.

My teaching experience also includes delivering lectures on European Studies to postgraduate students at the College of Europe, as well as teaching seminars of public sector economics to undergraduate students at Utrecht University.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is results-focused. I first discuss with the student what are his/her objectives (this may be achieving top marks at a final exam, being able to undertake exercises given as homework, or increasing their understanding of certain aspects of a subject). We then devise together a work plan, to ensure that the student meets those goals.

This approach has been very successful in the past, as it is not only important to understand a certain subject, but also to be prepared for the particular type of examination or assessment that the student will need to face.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Riyaad and I aim to help students reach their full potential in their studies using a fun and engaging approach. I currently work as the maths specialists at one of the largest primary schools in Medway

I completed my PGCE (7-14 Maths) course at Canterbury Christ Church and have experience teaching at both primary and secondary schools.
I completed an MSc in Renewable Energy at the University of Reading, where I achieved a distinction. I also completed my BSc in Quantity Surveying at the University, achieving a first classification.

I am CRB certified.

During the summer term (24th July 2014 to 1st September 2014) I will be running Math classes from my home for only 10p/h and there will be a maximum of two other students in the group.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work full time as a year 6 teacher at a large primary school in Medway, where one of my duties is to take the gifted and talented students in maths. In my first year of joining the school we were able to achieve the school's first ever level 6 in mathematics.
I have been employed, by Linguistic Educational Courses, as a summer school English teacher to design and deliver a tailored written and oral programme, ensuring effective teaching of the English language to international students aged 13-19. I have also tutored on a one to one basis for the company at my home.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe my easy to talk to personality creates a learning environment that allows students to feel comfortable enough to ask questions and to discuss any problems. I use a range of teaching methods for example puzzles, real life examples, past papers, text books to ensure the lessons are varied and kept interesting for the students.

I dedicate my time to ensure I produce a fully tailored lesson plan according to my students' ability and to maximise the focus on any areas of weakness. I am contactable by email between lessons if parents have any queries, or if they would like me to prepare teaching material on a certain subject for the next lesson.

Personal Description:
I have just completed my third year at the University of Cambridge studying medicine. Naturally, my specialist subjects are Mathematics and the Sciences. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and get great satisfaction when I see my pupils progress and understand subjects they initially find difficult. Furthermore, I have studied further maths, biology, chemistry and physics at A-level

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored A level, GCSE and 11+, as well as university aptitude tests such as the BMAT/UKCAT, and hence feel well equipped to teach a variety of students. Subjects I have taught in the past include Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I fully appreciate the difficulty and stress associated with exams, and through personal experience have found that success is largely dependent on good exam technique and understanding of the material one is learning. I aim to inspire confidence in my pupils along with aiding their understanding of difficult concepts, together both of these will hopefully allow the student to answer the toughest of questions. I strongly believe that every student has abundant potential, and by tailoring my teaching methods to each particular student I intend to help the pupil achieve his/her best possible results.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in French and German and have taught both to A level over the last 30 years. I am a committed linguist, having a further qualification in translation. I am well travelled and have a deep understanding of the cultures of the Francophonie and the German speaking lands. My personal interests are concentrated in cinema, music, literature and history; all of which I have a good knowledge of with reference to the target language countries.
I am the mother of 3 children, all of whom studied a language at A level and one of which has a languages' degree.

Teaching Experience:

I have been Head of Modern Languages for 8 years and have just reduced my workload to 2 days per week. I am a very experienced A level teacher of both French and German and have worked as a private tutor before at this level. I am responsible for Oxbridge applications and references in my school.
I shall also be working as an examiner for one of the examination boards; an occupation that I fulfilled for many years, when my own children were young.

Tutoring Approach:

I will need to diagnose the needs of the student in the first session and work on perceived weaknesses thereafter. My aim is to breed confidence and precision.
I have proved myself to be very successful at promoting oral skills, whilst also being known as 'the grammar nazi' by my 6th form students.

Personal Description:
I have been studying Martial Arts since 1966. Having gained Master qualifications in Ninjutsu, Karate, Taekwondo, Jujutsu and Kung-Fu. My personal martial arts journey began whilst growing up in the far east.
Following a violent attack as a 16 year old child, while perusing various forms of self-defense classes, I was introduced to the Japanese Martial Arts an immediately became a convert.
I have a keen interest in the well-being of people, those who have experienced violent trauma, lack the confidence to defend themselves or their family, or who simply want to learn a Martial Art.

I am also a qualified Life Coach accredited by The Coaching Academy.
Life coaching draws inspiration from disciplines including Sociology, Psychology, Positive Adult Development, Career Counselling, NLP, Mentoring and other types of Counselling.

Teaching Experience:

I am qualified to teach martial arts weapons. My expertise is close contact situations, how to resolve them and how to avoid them.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated with Merit in MSc Sport Management from Coventry University. I am French and I offer to my students a different approach to the French Language as well as learning of the Francophone cultures. I am serious, motivated and I have experience in tutoring. I am available everyday and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

Last year, I worked during 5 months as a French Language assistant at Bangor University. My role was to improve oral and aural skills of the students, while broadening their understanding of French and Francophone cultures. I have led the different classes by myself and reported regularly my work to the Head of the French section. I had to be proactive and creative, as I have to prepare each class with different exercises as well as being responsible and meeting deadlines following the programme of the students.

Tutoring Approach:

My purpose as a tutor is to allow to my students to be confident when they speak French. It is not easy to learn a new language or even if you have some basics of the language sometimes you are afraid to talk because you think you will make mistakes. It is normal to make mistakes. I have learnt English as a second language so I know exactly how someone who learns a new language can feel as well as what is the best ways to learn it. The most important thing is that the learning has to be entertaining. It is the easiest way to keep the vocabulary in mind and allow to the person to be confident. Videos, movies, one to one conversation lessons about all kind of subjects are as important as translations and grammar exercises.

Personal Description:
I was born and grew up in Brazil, where I graduated in Business and Management in 1980.
I moved to the London in 1983 where I stayed until 2001, when work took me to the North East of England.
My passion is Economics, Politics and current affairs.
When not engaged in conversations on any of the above, gardening, reading and entertaining tend to be the best replacements.
I'm also fairly well travelled and very keen on Asian countries.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst in Brazil, I worked as an Auditor for one of the big banks and taught Economics at the equivalent of "A" level to under 18s.
My career continued in the UK (since the early 1980s) and, added to my work as a UK civil servant, I also give private tuition in English language to Brazilian students of a disadvantaged background (via Skype).

Tutoring Approach:

I'm flexible and tailor the style to suit the tutee's needs. This can be a mixture of conversation, exercises, grammar, music and lecture.
During the tuition, we can talk about current events, politics, travel experiences or something else that we both find interesting.
For those wanting grammar, the approach is then more structured, follows rules and techniques to which I add an increasing amount of vocabulary.
