Personal Description:
I have completed an LLB Law degree and have furthered this by undertaking a Legal Practice Course. I am currently working as a legal representative. In the past I have really enjoy working with young people and I feel that tutoring is something that is underrated and hugely beneficial to them. Due to working with young people in sports I have a full enhanced CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

At university I obtained a position as a Peer Assisted Learning coordinator and leader, which involved taking on a group of first years once a week in order to go over their notes, help them learn to study, revision and essay structuring techniques. This allowed students to have a different kind of learning environment to that of formalised education in which they were comfortable with practising work and asking questions. I very much enjoyed this and believe that it was highly beneficial to the students that attended.

Working at a local football centre I have been involved in several sporting/coaching projects for young people. This has allowed me to develop different teaching strategies related to different environments; these involve quick thinking and problem solving both skills which I deem to be essential when tutoring.

I have close links to a local secondary school and therefore am able to have access to valuable resources which will aid tutoring sessions.

I offer tutoring in GCSE and KS3 English, GCSE & KS3 Maths, GCSE PE and GCSE and A-Level Law.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring is a very important concept for some children. A lot of children benefit hugely from one to one information and reinforcement; and it may be a far more effective learning strategy for them. I think it is important to first gain an understanding of where a child's strengths and weaknesses lie, in order to focus on the areas which perhaps need improvement. I also value a child's input as they are good judges of what they feel they do well and what they may need help with. The tutoring sessions will move at a pace that the child is comfortable with, and help with homework and coursework will be available. For GCSE and A-Level tutoring if desired essay structuring and revision strategies can be discussed and learned, as these are often overlooked in schools.

I feel that tutoring outside of school may help improve a child's confidence within a school environment, be this in the work itself or in class discussions and for them as a person. It is not always easy for a child to speak up at school, and if they do not understand this may result in them falling behind. As a tutor I am able to reinforce school work at a pace more appropriate for the level of your child, and allow them to develop and learn in a way that is suitable and enjoyable for them.

Personal Description:
A highly effective teacher; experienced, well organised, motivated, enthusiastic, with good sense of humour.

I establish rapport with my students. In my long career in teaching, I have learned how to make the most complex concepts in science 'digestible'. My motto is: 'Excellence in Education'.

I am a member of Pi Lambda Theta (International Honour Society for Educators).

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Teacher / Lecturer, and have taught Biology and Chemistry for over thirty years in Secondary, and Further/Higher Education in the US, the EU, and the UK. I have taught the AQA, Edexcel, OCR, and the International Baccalaureate specifications.

In addition to teaching students, I have trained teachers, as well.

Tutoring Approach:

While my Bachelor's Degree is in Biology and Chemistry, my Master's Degree is in Education with emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction, which means I have trained in designing and delivering effective lesson plans, as well as a complete curriculum. I design my instruction taking into account the student's learning style. The 'one size fits all' type of teaching is responsible for the failure of many students. Every student can learn and can do well, provided the teaching style accommodates the student's learning style, and there are no 'gaps' in what is prerequisite knowledge for taking a certain course.

Knowledge builds on pre-existing knowledge. I make certain that my students really understand and appreciate that. I diagnose any 'gaps' in content knowledge that my students may have, and I 'fill' them, providing a solid foundation for my students to build on.

Study skills, which figure prominently in my teaching, and exam technique, along with a well-rounded, in-depth knowledge of content, provide the key to success.

At the end of the course, my students not only do they have what they need to tackle the Biology or Chemistry Exam, but also a wealth of learning skills which they can apply to other subjects as well, and which they will find essential in all their future academic studies.

Educational technology supplements my instruction. The content in every session is presented on PowerPoint with quality images. I clarify every point and make certain my student has 'grasped' the present concept before I proceed with the next. Where appropriate, the PPT presentation is followed by a brief video which makes the content 'come alive'. My PowerPoint presentations, as well as my notes on PDF or Word files are available for my students after the lesson.

I finish the lesson practicing exam - style questions. It goes without saying that regular revision is important, and I provide my students with lots of past exam papers.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Cambridge where I read Economics and have over 600 hours of tutoring experience.
I studied Economics, Mathematics and Modern History for A-Level, and English Literature at AS-Level, achieving A-grades in all of them.

I worked for nearly two years at the FSA, working on financial regulation and Economic Risk and then worked as an Economic Advisor to an MP where I focussed on Economics. I stood for Parliament last year.

I have continued tutoring due to my love of teaching and I believe that it benefits both me, and the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 200 hours of experience in preparing students for University- helping students with their personal statements and interview technique. I have also worked for Oxbridge Applications and have been trained extensively in mock interviews, preparing for the TSA test and how to improve self confidence, interview skills and writing skills.

I have over 600 years of experience in tutoring A-Level Economics in the last four years alone (although I have tutored since 2010). I have helped students from different backgrounds and achievement levels and have received positive feedback.

"Resham tutored my son over 18 months whilst he was studying for his A level in Economics. At the time my son started his tuition, he was probably a borderline A/B student . Over time this translated into him achieving an A* in his Economics paper at A level, including 100% in one of his essay papers.
I have no doubt this was as a result of engaging Resham as his teacher, and would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending her as a tutor. She will get you results!"

"Resham has not only thoroughly prepared me for the demands of my AS economics course but she has also helped me to delve further into economics and develop my deeper understanding and interest"

"My child got 3A*s including 100% on one of his economics papers, so a massive thanks is due to you"

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing when tutoring a student is to be patient and kind as no student benefits from an environment in which they are made to feel stupid or slow. In fact, the problem is often the way students are taught and so I try to make lessons as interactive as possible to ensure that the student really understands what I teach them.

I believe that it is important to tailor the Tuition classes to the needs of the individual student, in order to help students realise their full potential. Students learn in different ways and so it is important to recognise that the method that works for one student, might not work for another.

I like to sit-down with students to establish what they are hoping to achieve, and where their strengths and weaknesses lie in the subject. That way I can ensure that the lessons are as helpful as possible for the student as I try to help the student achieve their goals.

For Long-Term students, I have found that it works best to track the lesson plans according to what has been taught in school during the week. This allows me to help students to to ensure that any misunderstandings are dealt with quickly so that they can build on this knowledge in the next week's lessons at school.

For students close to Exams, I focus more on the concepts that are fundamental to the subject to boost the chance of gaining high marks in the exam. I also focus on teaching exam technique.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!
My name is Tanguy, I come from Southern France and live in London, where I write my PhD thesis (English). I am deeply committed to teaching and learning. I enjoy facing up to new challenges. I am a hard-working person, with a zest of originality to make it interesting!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked (and mostly taught) in many different countries so far, which has been very profitable for my teaching practice.
I began as a French language assistant in 2006-2007 in a secondary school in South London.
Two years later, during my MA in Montpellier, I became a tutor at the department of English of my home university.
I went to the US in late 2009 to be a French language instructor at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I taught a class of 20 beginners (aged 18 to 25) on a daily basis, which was extremely motivating. A few months later, I crossed the border and offered one-to-one tuition in Montreal, Canada.
In London since 2010, I achieved the status of Associate Practitioner delivered by the Higher Education Academy in February 2014. This qualification is in line with the UKPSF standards for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.
I am now teaching at Goldsmiths on the seminar 'Approaches to Text' (Department of English).

Tutoring Approach:

The teaching I offer is tailored to your specific needs. I try to relate to your own interest to facilitate the learning process. My teaching method is fundamentally active: we will work towards the goal that you will have determined beforehand through a constant engagement with the language on your part. Lat but not least, I try to make my teaching fun whenever I can!

Personal Description:
I am a 24-year-old, native speaker and fully-qualified teacher of French, based in Lancaster.
I completed my PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) in French with German in 2016, gaining Qualified Teacher Status, and I have experience of one-to-one tutoring in French and English as a foreign language, to children, students and adults.
I am a bilingual speaker of French and English and have lived, studied and worked in both England and France.

Teaching Experience:

- Currently tutoring and have previously tutored students of different ages and abilities in French and English as a foreign language
- Taught French at Key Stages 3 and 4 in two secondary schools over the course of last year
- Worked as an English Language Assistant in two colleges in France, teaching English to 15-21 year olds, in 2012-2013
- Did a one-week placement in a local sixth-form last year
- Worked as a supply teacher for various subjects in July last year

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the needs and wishes of my students - whether you would prefer conversational practice with a native speaker, a more academic approach to prepare for exams, or learning French from scratch - it's up to you! I am friendly, patient and enthusiastic, and keen to help you develop your confidence and make progress.

In the first session I will gauge your level through conversation and some generic exercises, and discuss what you wish to focus on in upcoming lessons. From there, we will decide on topics and focus points together from one session to the next, with each session building on the previous one, so that you get exactly what you want out of the sessions and feel like you are making progress in the right areas, whether that be grammar points, speaking, or any other area.

Personal Description:
I am a current Psychology MSc student. I love learning, but I haven't always felt that way. I currently read one book a week, while not so long ago as a student I truly hated reading. I had a tough time with developing relevant skills, procrastination and a very limited mindset while studying for my A Levels. This resulted in many set backs, high stress and low motivation. However, I learned something that has completely transformed my life in every way. I am determined to share this with others, which is why I love working with young people.

While attempting to find a solution to my 'student problems' I developed a fascination with the human brain. I read extensively on the topics of psychology, neuroscience and learning. The knowledge and tools that I have discovered has helped me to overcome many issues that most students face daily. For this reason I have spent the last 5 years mentoring and coaching students of various ages, to empower them and motivate them to enjoy learning as much as I do.

I am interested in politics, mental health, psychology, nutrition, metaphysics and many more.

My hobbies are yoga, meditation and reading. I also volunteer as a Mentor to a young adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my current role as an Academic Learning Coach at a sixth form college I design and teach study skills workshops, lessons and support students one to one. With over 2 years spent researching how the brain learns, I teach using evidence based methods and share all my knowledge about the brain with the students. I have taught over 800 students in the last year and worked with 100s of students one to one.

As a Student Ambassador at the University of Sheffield I have over 2 years of experience teaching study skills workshops.

I have one year of experience tutoring/mentoring GCSE students in a school setting.

I have one year of experience of Mentoring A Level students in Philosophy and Ethics.

I have 2 months of experience teaching English as foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

Through my work with 100s of students I have developed a holistic approach to identifying and addressing individual needs of every student. I have created an extensive assessment form and a range of reflective activities to get to know the young person, what motivates them and what stops them from achieving their goals.

During an initial assessment I identify the young persons mindset, confidence, study skills, writing skills, thinking skills, stress management skills, organisation skills, exam skills, goal setting skills and personal development skills.

After an assessment we decide on the type and number of sessions. I then work systematically through each area using coaching and mentoring techniques. There will be a small task for a student to complete after each session.

Often it might be beneficial to work together with a parent during certain sessions.

Support that I can offer:

Motivation
Dealing with Procrastination
Managing Stress
Tackling Limiting Beliefs
Revision and Study Skills
Exam Technique
Effective Analysis and Evaluation
Critical Thinking
Note-making
Organisation Tools
Structuring Revision
Improving Concentration and Focus
Academic Writing
Reading Techniques
Philosophy and Ethics

Personal Description:
Hi all,

I am a chemistry graduate with a fresh and wide knowledge of the subject. My strongest qualities are probably that I can explain science in plain language and I am genuinely interested to get you interested! We can start from the basics if needed and step by step working our way up to understand the underlying concepts of chemistry. I have a great amount of experience in writing coursework and assignments, I can teach you to research effectively and grab the details you need without getting lost in the huge amount of information you can find on the internet. I can give you hints on how to put essays and papers together if you got any issues with that. I enjoy when when my students get confidence, show interest and of course that leads to better grades eventually. It takes time and effort though, you have to work hard if you want to improve! I can effectively assist with biology, biochemistry as well.

Teaching Experience:

I teach since 2013 and find a great joy in it, because every student is different and there is always a challenge to find the best possible way to make them work for those results. There are different techniques and useful tips I can give how to remember more complex topics, but naturally you will have to take your time to read and practice as well if you'd like to make the most of it. I can help you to work through the sometimes complex and abstract ideas and concepts, they will help you to develop useful skills you don't even know of. It is impossible to remember everything and luckily this is not what they expect from you on exams. You need a good grasp of the subject , so you can solve seemingly complicated questions if you know the basics very well and are able to make associations. You need to develop a good sense of judgement and should be able to see the point in less straight forward questions as well. My ultimate goal is to help you getting to a stage where you will independently work without the need of much feedback and support.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very friendly and easy-going nature and I will try to make sure that students will feel comfortable during the lessons. I think that is particularly important, because they should not feel shy or awkward about asking the same thing several times in case they don't get it straight away. I am more than happy to go through over and over anything you have problems with. There is always a different way to explain it, just as everybody has a different mindset! Small details can make huge differences and better understanding will help to get the confidence the students need when they assessed at exams . I regularly check if my help is effective and the most suitable in the particular topic. I always take my time to prepare as well, to be ready to answer any question and I always make sure there are no blind spots. I believe in active learning, therefore we will solve questions most of the time instead of going through the book. Of course my personality or teaching style should not fit all, then I will advise to keep on searching until you find the right person you can learn from.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my career I have been involved with a range of interventions for Key Stage Four students. Intervention can be provided through a range of activities including classroom based strategies, curriculum days where there is a focus on an English topic, extracting students for small group work or providing extra-curricular support which could involve targeted support packages. I take a student centred approach to tutoring, tailoring sessions to fit the needs of the student.
