As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

Now, with over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of institutions - from Oxbridge entrance to comprehensives on 'Special Measures' - I am young enough to remember my struggles and old enough to know better.

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

This is my sixth year as a full-time tutor, but I was a secondary school teacher for 19 years before that.

I have experienced many types of academic performance from high-performing grammar schools to comprehensives on 'special measures'. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility within schools, particularly in the pastoral system such as Head of Year. I have been a grade-A examiner for AQA GCSE Geography.

During the last five years of 11 Plus entrance, including September 2014, 15 out of my 25 students have passed. I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, a 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts. Both 12+ and 13+ tutees I have taught have passed their exams.

I have taught numerous syllabi: in the last five years I have tutored AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC at A level Geography. Indeed, I taught the whole of the A2 Edexcel Geogaphy syllabus online to one a tutee in Moscow: he has now gained a place at Aston University. I have mainly tutored the AQA and Edexcel syllabi for GCSE Maths. It would be fair to say that the overwhelming majority of my A level tutees experience significant gains and regularly obtain A or B grades.

At the moment (November 2014) I have 21 tutees in total: this includes 3 home-school tutees doing a variety of subjects such as GCSE Maths and Geography as well as Key Stage 3 Maths, English, History, Geography, Citizenship and RE; two GCSE English tutees; one Key Stage 3 Maths tutee; three Key Stage 3 English tutees; three 12 Plus tutees; six Key Stage 2 Maths tutees; one GCSE Maths tutee; one KS5 numeracy tutee and, finally, one GCSE Geography tutee.

I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

Tutoring and learning should be natural and intuitive so that tutees can 'fly' by themselves.

To make the most of tuition, a tutee must be 'on-board'. If it's their idea - even better. A tutee that is in-charge of their own learning makes an excellent pupil.

As a tutor, I decide what is right for the tutee - not an institution. Parents often want someone who is familiar with the education system but independent enough to give an honest assessment. My main concern is the welfare of the tutee - not just their academic progress - nor the reputation of some teacher or institution. If something is not right for a tutee, no matter how forceful a parent might be or how much money I might lose, I simply will not do it. Each year there are a handful of tutees I turn away because of this.

In the first session I will try to identify what it is the tutee needs, and you may wish to quiz me in more detail. I will need access to school reports and examples of the tutee's work. Through discussion with my tutee and parental input it should become clear the reason for the tutoring.

From this 'snag' list, I will design a bespoke program to meet the educational needs of the tutee. It is flexible and, unlike a classroom situation, I can respond immediately to the needs of the tutee.

Homework will always be set, depending upon the demands placed upon the tutee by the normal school week. The tutee will be far more involved with learning than in a normal school class where they can 'hide', so prospective tutees need to expect plenty of chat and discussion, reviewing work and giving feedback.

For learning to be 'on the wing', to be natural and instinctive, tutees need to work hard without feeling the burden. This can only happen through enjoyment and a lot of laughter. That's my part: helping tutees to work really hard without realising it.

If at any point I feel unable to help, I won't just prolong tuition, or if our work has met its aims then I will call a halt. The point of tuition is not to need me anymore, so they can 'fly' all by themselves.

I offer two types of 'remote' tuition options at the moment:

i/ ONLINE FACE-TO-FACE TUITION: face-to-face on Skype is very good in dealing with syllabus issues and reinforcing and filling in the holes the class teachers leave behind. Face-to-face tuition lends itself well to visual resources such as diagrams, maps and pictures. It is primarily discussion-based and the tutee needs to take notes as we go along. I regularly send tutees files to prepare them for the lesson and to discuss in the lesson. If a tutee comes to face-to-face tuition and expects to be spoon-fed or entertained, it just won't work. Extra work can be set to test their written understanding. Usually, it is enough to go through topics the student struggles with. Once they 'click' with the topic/issue, we move onto other areas. Payment for this type of tuition is a flat fee each week to cover lesson preparation and the lesson itself. The marking of substantial pieces of work outside of lesson time such as essays will incur a modest marking fee.

ii/ CORRESPONDENCE-STYLE WITH UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT: work is set through powerpoints, pdf files and word documents for the student to do on their own in their own time. This should keep the tutee occupied for between 1-3 hours each week, unless more is required. It is then returned to me within the week. I mark it and provide feedback in the form of an audio file (up to 30 mins), talking them through the various issues. Any amounts of email conversations to help the student with this particular piece of work are allowed, after feedback has been given. This is very much an ongoing and open-ended commitment, once work has been set and feedback given, and the student is totally free to contact me with any issues. As a result, the payment structure is open-ended and depends on the amount of time used to prepare resources, mark and give audio feedback. This is added up at the end of each week, and the client is then billed. Follow-up emails and support are not timed but are considered as a 'free' part. Generally, this time will be from about 45-90 mins per week. I keep a track of the time minute to minute and endeavour to keep the time used as short as possible while setting about 1-3 hours of work. This is very much a trust system of working. I tailor the work individually to suit the student as opposed to an ordinary correspondence course that just covers syllabus content.

Please be aware that I do charge for travelling over 30 miles (roundtrip: 15 miles each way):
30-40 mile roundtrip - 5
41-50 mile roundtrip - 10
51-60 mile roundtrip - 15

Main objective is to enable students to apply the theoretical concepts learnt from their academic studies to practical business environment. Normally I start from very basic easy examples and then gradually go towards complex exam questions, so that students get the confidence that they will pass the exams. I also provide online tuition, using shared documents and skype or phones. I send my own study material to students via e mail, communicate with them on skype or phone, they send me their questions or past papers, i solve them and send them scanned solutions, then explain on skype. I always teach my students in a very friendly environment. I tell my students take exams like a tournament and think they are the players, and I m their coach, together we have to make a strategy, a plan to win the game (exam :). I keep motivating my students by telling them you can do it . Champion Attitude : Lets Do IT.

Personal Description:
With BEng in Electronics, I'm am a confident mathematics tutor, able to teach students at primary to A-level. Studied in Iran, I've always been very good in mathematics and have had experience helping other math students. I'm 51, married and with two children, studying in high school and one in sixth-form.

Teaching Experience:

During my education at university, I was teaching maths at high school level, as well as taking over problem solving classes at University as a Co-teacher. In UK I have tutored A-level and GCSE student in maths, therefore I'm familiar with Edexcel maths for both GCSE and A-level.

Tutoring Approach:

All students are different in their own ways, Hence I usually evaluate students and based on that evaluation I will design a tutoring plan that suit that student and help them achieve their goals. Once I have taught a student a topic, I will provide many exercises to make sure that topic is mastered by the student. Because it is important for me that the tutee is happy with my work and satisfied, I do NOT charge for the first session. For the first session, I will teach a student as I would if it was paid, 1) to give the student a chance to evaluate the session 2) to give the parents an idea of how the session goes and its result before paying!

Personal Description:
I am a well qualified and experienced teacher in Maths, English Language & Science. I have taught in various secondary schools for well over 14 years and have also offered one to one tuition in to many pupils in primary & secondary schools.

I possess a degree in education and a teacher training certificate (PGCE) in Maths & ICT. I have successfully helped pupils to gain exceptional results in their subject areas. I am also a national education award winner.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my experience in education, both studying and teaching, I have realised that not all students are given sufficient attention from the teacher. I have taught at various schools & colleges. Currently I am teaching at Burnley & Bradford College as a lecturer in Maths/ICT.

Throughout my experience in education, both studying and teaching, I have realised that not all students are given sufficient attention from the teacher. This is a problem inherent within the education system. Let me explain. The average school-class consists of approximately 25 students and the average teacher works under tremendous pressures. These include the demands of completing the syllabus, time restraints and teaching students of mixed abilities. For these reasons, it is usually the case that teachers are unable to attend to the needs of each individual at all times.

As a result, it is very likely that some students fail to understand key concepts or even lose confidence in themselves and in the subject.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one, use of ICT, regular assessment conducted through using worksheets, textbooks, exam -papers, ICT, on line assessments and coursework. I have recently updated my resources by building a bank of very useful resources including latest Edexcel GCSE Maths text books and CD-Roms.

I consider Maths as my forte as it is my favourite subject, one which I excel in. I am also more than capable in other sciences, namely Physics, Chemistry and Biology up to GCSE level all of which I achieved A grades in myself.

I also have an interest in theology and enjoyed studying Religious Studies in school. I believe it is important to have a basic knowledge and understanding of different faiths for younger generations living in a diverse society.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching Maths, English and basic IT skills to children aged 4-10 in an orphanage. I also have some experience tutoring young children in basic numeracy and literacy.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that teaching requires persistence and patience, especially with younger students. I am motivated to help my students achieve the grades that they need by teaching them in whatever manner is best suited to them as individuals.

Personal Description:
I am a native Russian speaker who values the importance of communication amongst people all over the world and believes that LEARNING LANGUAGES CAN BE VERY FUN!
In my late teen years I began learning the Greek language at the most basic level and continued on to complete my Graduate degree in a bilingual study program in Greece.
Having lived and studied abroad, I understand first-hand the many challenges one faces when learning and communicating in a foreign language. In turn, I am able to help Russian language students overcome these challenges and gain confidence in their communication.
As Russian has become such an important skill - be it for business, education or pleasure - I am eager to do all I can to support you in reaching your individual goals.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from the literacy level who have almost no knowledge or understanding of Russian and Greek right up to the University level students who need to improve their reading and writing skills for their class work and essays. I have worked with students of all abilities and ages, both in groups and individual.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning another language is such a rewarding experience and will benefit you in every area of your life.
I have worked with people who have hearing impairments as well as severe accents. I specialize in verbal and auditory teaching of the mechanics of producing sound. If you want to learn how to use your breath and muscles to speak clearly and with expression, I would be very happy to spend some time with you. I also have many teaching strategies that I would like to share with you to help you improve in all areas of Russian grammar, writing and listening.
I am developing new ways of teaching languages which would help people to reach individual goals, find interests and own learning styles.

Personal Description:
I am an Economics graduate from Hanover University, Germany and teach part-time in a successful private college in the city of Bath. Since 2004 I have been working as a freelance tutor of Economics, as a translator (from English into German and vice versa), as a journalist and book author. Prior to that I worked as a technical support engineer for four years and as an office manager for six years. I live in Bath, am married and have two children. I love teaching, especially Economics, because it deals with some of the most fundamental problems of our society. To solve them we need to understand Economics.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2004 I have been tutoring AS and A2-level students in small groups and one-to-one, and university preparation courses in classes of up to 15 students. I have taught the AQA, Edexcel, and OCR syllabuses. Most of the individual students were re-sitting exams, most of whom improved their grade, often significantly.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all I ascertain any particular areas the student needs help with most urgently. I then review the basics with the student to make sure that these have been well understood. We then systematically work through the required subject matter, checking progress with the help of exam-style questions and past examination papers.
