Personal Description:
Hello.

I am a graduate of Cambridge University. I was previously at a successful, all-girls, private school.

I have top grades in a wide range of GSCEs. I took Spanish, Latin, Ancient Greek and General Studies at A Level and passed with high A grades. I have a first class degree in Classics and Oriental Studies (Middle Eastern and Islamic)

People describe me as friendly and sociable as well as organised and efficient. In my Cambridge college I held various positions of responsibility.

Teaching Experience:

I also have lots of experience as a private tutor teaching all ages and ability ranges.

Most recently I was working as a full time teacher of English at the National School of Aleppo, Syria. I had two grade 6 classes and 4 grade 10 and 11 classes.

During July '08 I taught English as a foreign language at a school in Dubai, UAE. I had my own form class but during the school day I saw 60 children between the ages of 11 and 15.

I have also taught Shakespeare-based workshops to English Primary School children and Japanese High School and University Students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and supportive as a tutor; encouraging my pupils to stretch themselves and achieve their best.

Although I am only young, I feel that I have the right amount of maturity to guide my pupils effectively, and I am also very approachable. Tutoring is not the same as teaching in a classroom, so I do not believe that a Tutor should be the same as a teacher.

Personal Description:
Salut - Je m'appelle Solène ( pronounced so-len )

I was born and brought up in Paris, although much of my family roots lie in Brittany. I came to England initially to learn the language - but ended up meeting my future husband and starting a family here in Dorking, Surrey.

Teaching Experience:

Apart from the obvious fact that I am a native French speaker - I have been teaching French since 2009 in schools, including Duke Of Kent in Ewhurst and Petite Ecole in Reigate, but mainly privately to exam students or adults wishing to improve their skills. I have also been called upon to help with some translation and making phone calls to France to assist people with such issues as property.

Tutoring Approach:

Having initially gauged a student's abilities in the language - I will prepare each lesson to their specific needs & requirements - whether it be working on grammar or perhaps general conversational skills. My aim is to give people confidence and make learning enjoyable.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from a Masters degree in drama at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama having graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English. Teaching has always been a great passion of mine and one to one tutoring is the most rewarding, in its opportunity for directness and specificity.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for three years and have also tutored drama in schools over the last few years. I have also had teaching experience abroad, teaching English as a foreign language in Indian and African schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to make learning fun whilst also ensuring fast and effective progress. I ensure that I get to know my students' ways of learning as soon as possible in order to tailor my tutoring style to their individual needs. I hope to be able to offer a way of learning different but utterly beneficial to the current exam syllabuses which can often seem fairly daunting and rigid on first impression.

Personal Description:
Hi I'm Tom. I am 25 years of age and am a graduate from the University of Cambridge with a 2:1 degree in Natural Sciences in which I specialised in Chemistry and Mathematics.
Much like the 'supervision' style teaching of the University of Cambridge, I love to share my passion for problem solving with others on a one-to-one basis.
Outside of academia, my interests include Table Tennis and the Rubik's Cube.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years experience tutoring Mathematics and Chemistry at both GCSE and A-Level with students of all abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that there is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching, and that often there are many correct explanations and solutions to problems.
Each person is different, so if one approach fails we will try again from a different angle to ensure a clear and lasting understanding.
I will aim to work towards the syllabus but am also willing to deviate slightly if the tutee would benefit from a wider understanding of the subject.
I am patient and strive to instil real enthusiasm and confidence in the subject for each student.

Personal Description:
Hello fellow mathematicians!

I'm Chris, a 23 year old maths PhD student at Brunel University. I was originally granted a School Studentship to fund my studies but then soon after starting my research I was upgraded to an ESPRC grant. I study maths because I enjoy it, and enthusiasm to teach it comes part of this package. For A-level and higher I specialize in pure maths, so algebra, calculus etc so if you happen to be struggling with areas such as these then I'm your guy. Any level lower than A-level I will also be happy to help with.

I do not have a current CRB check but I'm sure I could get one if it is needed - I haven't commited any crimes trust me.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst in 6th form and during my undergraduate years I often went back to my secondary school to help out in the maths department.

For the past academic year I have taught many seminars for foundation, 1st and 2nd year undergraduates. These have ranged from 2-100 students per seminar.

I tutored in the Maths Cafe which is to aid student's revision before their summer examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

Since I only graduated a year ago, I understand and can relate to difficulties students may face. With this in mind, I can offer the best form of tutoring in a way that I feel would have definitely helped me.

Personal Description:
I'm a good science student. My favourite subjects are always Maths, Science, Physics, Computer/IT. I always achieved 95% + mark in math since my school term to Degree level. I also always got good marks in Physics and computing.

I love to teach student who is interested learning. I know the trick to let enjoy learning to make sure my student is enjoying learning and understanding what i'm trying to teach.

I'm happy to teach online (skype). If the student does know how to set up skype, i will visit your home and will set up skype and will show my student how to use it. A part from my tuition hour, if there is extra hour needs i'm happy to provide extra hours in tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching GCSE and A level students in Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Student was able to develop their skills and achieved A*/9.
Some student set up their target for B but i changed their target for A/A* and they were able to achieve that grade.

Tutoring Approach:

If you live too far from me and traveling is not possible then i would prefer to teach on online to save time both side. Parent don't need to waste time to drop or pick up their children. I can record the teaching session if parents want to see what their children learning. They can see straight way what their children is learning.

Personal Description:
I am a Senior Lecturer in law at a London-based university. I have more than 3 years of experience delivering lectures and seminars, as well as preparing and marking assessments, which means that I know exactly how to support you to improve your legal skills (and your marks!).

I am passionate about working with students individually and supporting them through their university journey, which is why I decided to work as a private tutor. I work with a limited number of students only, depending on my availability, but I would love to have a chat with you to figure out how I can support you.

Teaching Experience:

HOW I CAN HELP YOU:

STUDY TECHNIQUES: I regularly work with 1st year LLB students, helping them to understand how they should study in order to receive excellent marks and continue improving their skills.

COURSEWORK/ASSIGNMENT SUPPORT: I can help you to understand the requirements of your coursework, and guide you through the process of structuring your essay, finding the right resources and analysing the law.

EXAM TECHNIQUE: Studying for exams can be quite stressful, especially if you don't know how to approach it. I will be happy to go with you through your mock exam paper, and explain how you should structure your exam answers and revise for the exam. I can even go over your mock exam answers and give you detailed feedback!

DISSERTATION SUPPORT: Some of the modules require you to complete a longer essay, known as a dissertation. There are slightly different rules that apply to writing those, and it's always good to have some external support throughout the writing process.

If you would like a flavour of what my teaching is like and how I explain different concepts in law, feel free to check out the Guidebook I authored: "Student`s Guide to Law: Developing a Legal Argument", which you can easily find in the Amazon Kindle library.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Here are the areas of law in which I currently tutor:

- Company law
- Commercial law
- Business law
- Family law
- Employment law
- Contract law / Obligations
- EU law
- Human rights law
- Public and administrative law
- English legal system
- Medical law and ethics
- Practical legal skills
- Careers support

I am also happy to explore other areas of law and expand my expertise, so if the area with which you need help is not on the list - please feel free to still approach me!

AVAILABILITY:

I am currently available for online Skype sessions only. I can do sessions during weekdays both during the day and in the evenings, and occasionally over the weekends too, subject to other commitments.

I have been teaching students online for more than 5 years now, and I use a professional equipment to make sure the sessions run smoothly. I know exactly how to arrange the sessions so that the students really benefit from them. I also have access to a wide range of online resources which I use during the sessions.

Online sessions are so much more beneficial to the students than traditional sessions! For starters, you are in the comfort of your own home which is a quiet environment with no external distractions. This means that you can focus entirely on the session and make the most of the full hour.

You can also start working on your assignment, mock exam answer or editing your lecture notes immediately after the session ends, when you still have in your head all the information that we discussed during the session.

And I won`t even mention all the time you save by not travelling to the session and back home!

INTERESTED IN BOOKING A SESSION? HERE ARE JUST A FEW GROUND RULES...

1. I tend to be quite busy, especially around coursework submission and exam revision times, so make sure you book your session in advance. I will rarely be available for a session if you will want it scheduled for the day after.

2. So that you can benefit from the session the most, I will need to prepare for it. For that, I will need you to send me the topic of your coursework (if you need support with your coursework), the corresponding lecture slides, your module outline and the details of the recommended textbook. You should be able to send these to me at least two days in advance of the session.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that private tutoring should be about me helping you to develop the skills that you need to develop within the shortest possible time (usually 3-6 sessions), rather than ongoing support.

Private support is pricey, especially if you're on a student budget, and so when you come to me we will make sure that there is a plan in place, and you know what type of progress you can expect within a short period of time.

My aim is always to provide you with as much information as I can so that you get to improve your skills fast!

Personal Description:
I have been an English teacher since moving to Asia in 2010. I have also studied intensive Mandarin at university in mainland China & Taiwan. I have been speaking Mandarin for 11 years now and use it daily in my life. For a period of 2 years I hardly even spoke English so as to improve my own Mandarin skills while immersing myself in Chinese society. I love watching movies & writing books. I do many sports including Parkour, climbing & archery. I always love to learn a new language and love teaching too. Love animals & pushing myself to do things. I'm positive about life & very friendly.

Teaching Experience:

For more than 8 years I have taught the English language to non native speakers throughout Asia and I have also taught beginner to intermediate level Mandarin to other foreigners in China. I have taught pre school children up through to high school and university level and even the elderly. I would say my strong points for teaching Mandarin are as follows: Spoken Chinese (How it's really used), formal and informal colloquial speaking, listening and understanding. I can also read traditional & simplified Chinese characters and write many.

Tutoring Approach:

My belief is that anyone can learn a language whether difficult or easy or if you have a hard time remembering things. There are ways and methods that can get your chosen language to stick in your head thus improving your skills quickly through the levels. My approach is to take a lesson, break it down into pieces & explain the exact meanings and the structure of what you're actually saying while drilling the characters into your head (Not literally)
>..< Also making it a fun and situational environment where you will learn how to really use your chosen language, therefore improving quickly and easily without feeling lost or frustrated. Instead you will be able to speak a new language within just a few months.
