Personal Description:
I am 53, with a B.Sc. in theoretical physics and an M.Sc. in quantum field theory (with some astrophysics), both from Imperial College, London. I have spent some years working in IT, but maths and physics are the subjects I love, and I enjoy teaching them. I'm familiar with all mathematics (including further maths) and physics to beyond A level standard and theoretical physics to university graduate level.

Teaching Experience:

I also teach chess at a school.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to teach the concepts clearly. Once the student has
the fundamental concepts straight then academic attainment follows naturally.

Many pupils struggle with maths and physics because of poor explanations
of the concepts involved. Schools often rely on rote memorisation and cramming, as
alternative to understanding. My approach is to explain the derivation of
material. A successful technique is to work through the pupil's choice of homework
or revision problem exercises or past exam papers, showing how each exercise can
be solved. This way the tutoring is targeted at exactly those areas that require
help and is also most directly relevant to achieving exam success.

All curricula and exam boards covered.

Personal Description:
My name is Safowan and I'm currently working as a software tester. Having graduated with a 2.1 honours in Mathematics I want to inspire young learners to achieve and fulfil their aims and ambitions during evenings and weekends. Tutoring has always been rewarding for me and it gives me great pleasure to share my knowledge to benefit others.

Teaching Experience:

My experience in teaching ranges from a placement in a secondary school as part of the student associates scheme (SAS) to private tutoring.

During my time at Royal Docks Community School as a Teaching Assistant, I worked closely with senior teachers in the Mathematics department. My daily responsibilities included; assisting pupils with their learning by working with small groups and on a one to one basis, assisting teachers with any administration tasks, occasionally working with SEN students, helping to ensure pupil disruption is kept to a minimum, having performance reviews from head of department, and ensuring school's policies and procedures are maintained at all times.

In the last year I have also been privately tutoring different students in their respective homes. This enabled me to gain experience of lesson planning, marking, exam preparation and identifying weaknesses and addressing them according to the student's ability. Therefore, time management played an important role as I had to prepare for each lesson, taking into consideration any changes that might occur in the lesson, and ensure the student learns a topic with enough practice questions under timed lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching would be to tutor my subject in a fun and friendly environment. Mathematics can be a difficult subject to grasp but can be understood better and enjoyable to learn if taught in a more positive and proactive manner. I prefer to explain the very basics of each topic at first before engaging with the student to try out the practice questions. As the student grows in more confidence, they will learn some exam strategies and techniques to overcome exam pressures.

Personal Description:
I practised as a Solicitor, specialising in Criminal Law for some 18 years, having attained a 2:1 Combined Honours LLB in Law and Politics, followed by the Professional Qualification - 6 of those years were running my own sole practice.
My original career plan was to teach, and so having undertaken my Professional Graduate Diploma of Education., I have contracts to teach Law and History subjects, at varying levels, including the Levels 3 and 6 Professional CILEX Law qualification, to different age groups. This leaves me time to offer a more individually tailored service to students requiring extra help as the exam season approaches.
My particular subject area is Law, from Level 3 to Level 6.
A Level and Undergraduate Law tutoring in litigation based subjects are my specialities - especially Criminal Law / Contract / Tort / Employment

Teaching Experience:

- Level 6 Law for The Institute of Legal Executives Professional Practice Qualification
- Level 3 (A Level standard) Business Law in Accountancy Professional Practice
- Level 3 History (A Level standard - Access to Higher Education [Teaching] Course
- Level 3 Law and Business
- Level 3, Year 1 Diploma in Law - Tort / Crime / Contract / Employment subjects and Preparing /Organising /Writing/ Directing Mock Trials
In summary, I teach law to 16-18 year olds and professionals, trainee accountants, and working paralegals, as well as History and Health subjects to students progressing to university

Tutoring Approach:

Assessment and curriculum requirements of the relevant course are paramount to ensure the student knows what the examining / awarding body expects in order to achieve. Once this is clear, the student can then begin to enjoy the learning through scenarios and stories
Review of learning, by inter-linking new topics with old, and use of examples and scenarios built and developed from experience, enables the student to recall and use what they know
Every student has an individual way of learning, and tapping into that is essential for transferring knowledge. Advice on examination technique, and the expectations of coursework are often neglected in mainstream teaching, yet are vital to qualification, and the use of knowledge.
I have a strong belief that tutees often overestimate the amount of paid tutoring they need, especially with the wealth of resources available, and with the appropriate guidance, the cost effectiveness of individual teaching and advice can surprise - in any case my charges are kept low, because I enjoy the work.
I'm happy to provide tuition at the tutees home, and only make a charge 12 per lesson for the return travel - that includes travel time and expense within a radius of 20 miles - learning should be fun as well as affordable, because if it's hard work, it's hard to remember.

Personal Description:
I was born in Sheffield in 1975. After moving to Peterborough, I spent most of my school years as a day pupil at Laxton School, Oundle, during which time my main enjoyment came from sport and music. I studied Natural Sciences at Clare College, Cambridge, specialising in chemistry, the fourth year of which involved an organic synthesis as part of research by the Goodman group.


Since 2002 I have lived in Exeter, working in a variety of contexts including IT, chemistry teaching and advice work for Age Concern. During 2008-9 I completed a PGCE at Exeter University, which involved teaching 16-18 yr olds and adults in IT and chemistry at Exeter College. Since then I have taught chemistry, IT and maths at Exeter College and privately.

Chemistry teacher at Mander Portman Woodward 5th & 6th form college, Cambridge.(1999-2000)

Chemistry tutor in Cambridge, London and Exeter(1999-present)

Tutoring Approach:

Approach to Tutoring:

My aim is to provide students with as much help as possible when preparing for their exams. This may take the form of:

Homework
Past paper questions
Revision of important topics
Helping with anything that the student wants to go through

Lessons are student orientated. If someone says, "I'm having trouble with these homework questions", then we get on with that topic. A lesson may involve going through questions, understanding notes or doing revision.

I can cover most of the current syllabuses including EdExcel, OCR, AQA and Nuffield.

Initially I recommend students bring along all their notes and textbooks. Then we can work out which are the good ones!

I encourage good study skills, revision skills and exam technique, and can set and mark homework if and when required.

Personal Description:
I am a conscientious, patient, enthusiastic, sociable and highly motivated person who is reliable, responsible and hard working. As a teacher of italian I can say that I chose to do this job because I like to know about languages and different culturures and during long years of travel around Europe and Middle East, I realized that languages are important to tie people in the world. I have an excellent knowledge of my mother language which is Italian, the grammar an also of the different dialects that are scattered throughout Italy. I am courious to find differences between words, to know historical reasons and development of languages. Italian is a beautiful language, the sound is warm, like a song and during the last years I have found hundreds of people that want to learn it. That is why I decide to teach,people want to be able to talk with anyone, whatever their nationality. For me languages teaching is synonymous with cultural exchange: by fostering and interest in language, we stimulate intercultural awareness and empathy for others. I taught italian to different people with different ages, cultural background( arabic,bengali,european) and different life experiences and I developed excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the proven ability to achieve targets and results following a personal method depending on difficulties and abilities to facilitate their learning.
Amongst my many hobbies are several sports, including football, run, volleyball and high jump.
I love to write poetry, just because is my way to vent different feelings; reading, specially essays and middle eastern historical books.
I love to travel around the world and getting in touch with different cultures, in particular, I really like to know what differs from culture from the others as regard the social aspect of daily life and just as the food, language and family relations and interpersonal skills. I am really intrested in arabic culture.
I love to cook and try recipes from other countries.
I am very friendly so i love spend time with people and socialise and help them when they needed, specially during my teaching job even I always try to be professional.

Teaching Experience:

*Italian tutor freelance at all levels;
*Italian teacher trainee, London- UK
October 2014
I taught 10 hours of italian lessons as L2 during my training in CELTA (teaching italian as foreign language to adults) to beginner and total beginner classes level (A1) and intermediate level (A1.1/ A1.2)

*Italian teacher, Rome- Italy
I taught private italian lessons as L2 to adults at different levels (from A1 to C2)
I taught italian as L2 in a class of Bengali adults for a voluntary purposes association.

٭Translator freelance, Rome - Italy and London - UK
Constant and actual job on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually apply and i strongly believe in an inductive method "spiral" dividing the teaching materials in different lessons and working cyclically on the different levels of learning(written and spoken comprehension, writing production and oral production);
I give attention to details and needs of the students and how to work with different levels and different learning skills;
I alwaysprogram, before lessons, some activities with a detailed lesson plan and interactive material;
Use of grammar books when needed.

Personal Description:
I have just recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in English Literature & Language. I am very passionate about literature and history outside of a teaching capacity. I have decided to begin tutoring since graduating as I would love to pass on my knowledge and teaching to students of all ability. I am also a mentor to students in my local community I have interests in football, quizzing, drama, and cinema.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students for over four years in London and Oxford. I initially began tutoring friends and family for GCSE History, English Language and English Literature. Soon I decided to take it further and began tutoring people in my local area. In my time as a GCSE tutor I have managed to push students from C grades towards B's and above.

I also tutor in AS/A Level English Literature and History. For AS/A Levels I regularly focus on exam technique and try to improve on essay structure.

Tutoring Approach:

When I arrived at Oxford I began tutoring students taking their A-Levels and my tutoring proved successful as many of my students went on to achieve very top marks in their exams. By focusing on bad exam technique and trying to eliminate common mistakes in essay writing it allowed me to greatly improve ability. Encouragement is something I have always found to be a worthy asset in tutoring as it empowers the tutee and provides the comfortable atmosphere needed for the student to excel. I aim to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that differs from the classroom so students can get to appreciate the texts and their various nuances without the pressures of a classroom.

Personal Description:
I'm raquel, a Spanish native speaker, patient, friendly, competent and sympathetic tutor.

I'm currently living in Bristol where I moved in August 2014. I was working as a English tutor for Cambridge Instiute in Madrid and decided to come to the UK to get more job opportunities.

Teaching Experience:

I started English home tutoring in 2009 in Spain, mostly for teenagers. The students started getting much better results in their exams and that gave me the confidence to continue teaching.

That's how I started working for English schools in Spain (Leyland academy april-june 2010; Pirineos academy october 2012-june 2013) to finally end up working at Cambridge Institute (july 2013-july 2014). The students' age ranged from 7 to 60, so I'm used to working with a wide range of ages.

Now that I'm settled down here I'd like to start home tutoring again.

Tutoring Approach:

My method is to combine grammar plus a real taste of the language.

Therefore, apart from the basic grammar I bring audiovisual materials such as videos, music, TV or radio programmes, readings, etc in conclusion, the window the student needs to experiment the English or Spanish we speak in the strreets, rather than the one tought in the grammar books.
