Personal Description:
I have been described by some of my former students as bubbly, friendly and approachable and have been known to put even the most nervous and timid students at ease. I have a background in lecturing, tuition, childcare and special needs in a range of subjects, levels and settings. My personal interests include film, photography, television, music, art and literature which I am keen to employ as methods of learning and development with my students. I have 3 young children of my own and also work as a sales assistant. I also offer proof reading and copy writing services as well as a distance tuition service.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor 2008 - Present
GCSE, A Level & Adult

Drama Tutor: Glenveagh Special School, Belfast 2011

Lecturer in Sociology: Belfast Metropolitan College 2008 - 2009
A Level, Adults

Learning Development Assistant: Queens University Belfast 2008
Study Skills Tuition

Taughmonagh Primary School Speech and Language Unit:
Film and Visual Studies Tuition

I have also worked in a day nursery, a nursery school and as a childminder, and have provided proof reading services to students online, as well as admin and copy writing services to small businesses and self- employed individuals.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to tailor my tutoring approach to the specific individual or group and to enable students to simplify their approach to studying while balancing their workload with other commitments. I am aware that the standard classroom approach does not always suit everyone and I aim to find interesting ways in which to help the student grasp the subject matter. I am particularly interested in using media as a learning and development tool.

Personal Description:
Iam a graduate of MSc Engineering professional. I have a real talent in passing exams, So, as a last resort, I hope some of my exam / revision tips can help someone get that extra few marks to move up a grade. I have very much interest in teaching the Maths & Science subjects and other similar subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have around 8 year's of teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very friendly and efficient for those who want to prosper in their studies. I always try to make my lessons mutually interesting, especially for my pupils. If students are not eager to study mathematics at first, I understand that this is due to frustration and lack of knowledge in the subject. I try to create warm and helping environment for pupils. I try to interest and inspire them so that they get enough knowledge and experience and eventually develop confidence and love for mathematics.

Personal Description:
I am an English graduate of the University of Wolverhampton, where I achieved a BA (Hons) 2:i. I also studied for my teacher training at Wolverhampton, focussing on English and maths. In my spare time I am a writer, and I am currently working on several pieces of work ready for publication. I also intend to become a part time PhD student in September, researching the impact of dialect and accent.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2009. I worked at Sutton Coldfield College for a year in the Basic Skills department, working with both 16-19 year olds, and also adult students. My work varied from teaching large groups to one on one support. When my training was complete, I began working for myself, teaching all ages and ability, as a personal tutor. I have worked with over thirty children both in my own and their homes. I also worked for OCR as an examiner from 2007-2009

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a student centred approach to tutoring. I complete a diagnostic assessment at the start of any course of tutoring, and then produce an Individual Learning Plan in order to best tutor the pupil. I am friendly and approachable, and ensure that students find my sessions challenging but interesting. I maintain online contact with my students at all times, and make them aware that if they ever have any problems with or questions about the work that I set, they are free to contact me. I am a firm believer that if a student finds a subject enjoyable, then they are more successful.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching for 12 years in a variety of educational settings in Further Education, Adult Education and working in Primary schools delivering courses to children and parents. I am currently up to date with primary school methods of teaching English and Mathematics - the latter has changed significantly over the years and parents may find methodology different to their own learnt methods which can cause problems when helping their children with homework.

I have a friendly approach, and encourage learning in a safe environment that enables learners to feel happy and stimulated to learn. But I still expect learners to work hard for me and complete homework when given it. I am a mature person, reliable and punctual, and interested in my students progress in their subjects. I have been so happy over this past year with exam results, raises in grades and the positive feedback from pupils and their parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching since 1999, and have a varied experience due to working in larger colleges and smaller learning establishments. I have worked in Adult and Further Education teaching English and Mathematics, and also have worked with youth offenders.

I started private tutoring in 2011, and found it a rewarding and enjoyable form of teaching. My learners have varied from 5 year olds & primary learners, those studying for GCSE's, secondary school pupils, English for speakers of other languages and those in Further Education that need extra help with English and Maths one-to-one (extra to their college courses).

Tutoring Approach:

I find it best to discuss with the students their learning needs, then create an 'Individual Learning Plan' with targets we can work towards. I do like to encourage learners to do their best, learn through doing and working out answers. Not so much focusing on 'wrong' answers - but the process of getting there - and realising where problems lie. Then we can remove the misunderstandings and misconceptions that lose them marks (especially with mathematics) and make new connections that enable learners to produce the 'right' answers.

I use all forms of learning through not just text books - but through games of mental maths or spelling, interactive work (if pc supplied in learners house) & help with school set 'mymaths' site, 'doing tasks' from counting money to making maths drawing with isometric paper and many more methods that stimulate a learner to make long term deep memory learning.

Students can feel in control of their learning, and see their progress in their Individual Learning Plans which can be shown to parents and adapted to suit the needs of the learner, either in long term courses or short intensive sets of lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old trained primary teacher looking for a new direction in my life. I want to begin supporting children through the knowledge that I have and support them to achieve their own potential.
I live in the Stafford area, having grown up in this area I want to give something back to a county that has given me so much.

Teaching Experience:

Attended university in Wolverhampton where I gained a 2:1 in Primary Teacher Training. I completed four placements during my time at university working in a range of schools, with varying levels of ability and individual needs.
Having graduated, I began teaching in a local Stafford school. I worked in the school for three half terms, subsequently leaving as I felt the full time teaching job wasn't for me at the time.
I am now looking for a way to slowly get back in to teaching and tutoring is where I would like to begin.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe any form of teaching should be engaging for any child to understand and subsequently gain from what they have been shown. Children should always be involved in their own learning, taking control and directing it where they feel they need to gain further knowledge in order to succeed.

Personal Description:
I have recently finished studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) at the University of Oxford, and have loved the course.

Outside academics I am a keen sportsman, taking part in university level football, amongst other sports.
I am honest, friendly and reliable and would look forward to tutoring anyone from and background or academic capability.

Having had dyslexia throughout my studies i understand how difficult the process of learning can be for some students, and am well equipped to help such students to flourish. Indeed the skills i have had to teach myself can be used to improve the ability of anyone, of any academic level.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my A-Levels and university i had been engaged in the informal tutoring of friends, and friends of friends which built up to a small network in Sussex, and increasingly Oxford. For the last few years i have been tutoring regularly, and have developed extended relationships with most of my tutees. Whether they are looking for specific and intensive help, or more structured work towards an exam the majority return to me.

Having been through the Oxbridge system myself I am especially well-versed in Oxbridge entrance-exam tutoring, or study beyond the standard curriculum. I know what it takes to get in to Oxford, and have varied programmes geared towards this specific end goal - making specific changes to the way one prepares has a drastic impact on the chance of success.

Scheduling necessary in advance, due to high demand.

My results are as follows:

GCSE:

Maths A*
English Literature A*
English Language A*
Chemistry A*
Physics A*
Religious Studies A*
Geography A*
French A*
Art A*
Latin A*

AS-Level:

Maths A
English A
Economics A
Theology A
History of Art A

A-Level:

Economics A*
English A*
Theology A*

PPE: Predicted 1st class honours, results pending.

Tutoring Approach:

Having spent time in the unique Oxford one on one tutoring programme i have realised that there cannot be one distinct and best approach to tutoring. What is best depends entirely on the individual being tutored. I have a strong belief that the material up to and including A-Level is not too difficult for anyone to grasp, it is simply the approach to the material that distinguishes those who perform well from those who under perform.

While a drive to do well needs to come from the students themselves, often revision and exam technique can be poor; students can spend hours on meaningless revision, or get a much worse mark than someone with equal knowledge.

Hence, while helping tutees understand bits they find hard, i find predominantly that it is their approach and mentality in relation to exams that need to change. How one thinks about what they are studying, and what specifically is required of them is the key to exam-success. 80% of people achieve a similar level of knowledge by the time of the exams, but only 10% know exactly how to use this information.

Therefore my typical tutorial would involve the tutee sending me an email with an explanation of what they are finding difficult in the chosen subject. I would then set some specific questions which the tutee would attempt before the tutorial. In the actual tutorial we would go through these questions making necessary clarifications to understanding while simultaneously discussing how to maximise marks. I have to far found that this approach yields the best results fastest, and prevents whole tutorials labouring upon one simple point.

My area of speciality is undoubtedly school scholarship exams (Eton, Winchester, Westminster etc.), or University Entrance (Oxford/Cambridge), but I have tutored from the age of 8 to the age of 40!

While my prices charged are relatively high, this is a consequence of high demand for my services and a proven track record. If you would like references do not hesitate to ask!

Please get in touch - I look forward to working with you.

Best

James

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student, undertaking my doctorate in Environmental Sciences, with a focus on soil nutrient cycling and nutrient transport to surface and ground waters. I completed my BSc in Physical Geography at the University of Exeter and gained first class honours in this.

Teaching Experience:

I carried out teacher training at a basic level with the University of Exeter in order to participate in the Students Associates Scheme. After this training I spent three weeks in a local secondary school where I actively participated in Geography and Religious Studies lessons, and was able to provide work plans for higher and lower achieving students. I also worked closely with students that had special educational needs.
I also have experience in teaching sports to groups of young children.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at the secondary school I found that I produced good results working one-to-one with students, particularly with students that were struggling to understand concepts or were having difficulty with the teaching style being used in the classroom. I am patient, focussed and willing to work hard to enable a tutee to achieve their goals.

Personal Description:
***CURRENTLY LIVING IN GERMANY & NOT AVAILABLE FOR UK TUITION****

I am a professional in my 30s with degrees in English & Italian Literature (BA 2:1, Warwick 2000) and the History of Medicine & Science (MA Merit, Birkbeck College, University of London). I also hold a CELTA qualification in teaching English Language to adults.

Following my masters degree I studied acting at Rose Bruford College and have performed at fringe venues in London and Belfast though tend now to concentrate on writing for the stage. My book of dramatic monologues, "Untold Lives" was published last year and is now available on Amazon. My first novel, "And I Shall Be Healed" was published by Quickbeam Press in January 2014,
I live in Chichester and am available for teaching evenings and weekends only. Some weekdays may be available, by arrangement.

Rates:
Tutoring: 25 per hour evening / weekend. 30 per hour daytime
Proof-editing: 2 per page.

In addition to teaching I also offer a proof-reading service so for university essays / research proposals / writing projects, please do contact me for rates.

Teaching Experience:

I am not a qualified teacher but have 6 years private tutoring experience. Much of this was tutoring GCSE students in English Literature with some history and A'Level students.

In addition to this I hold a CELTA qualificatin and have taught English language at summer schools in Italy.

I hold a CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim with students is to build their confidence and enthusiasm for the subject. To this end I concentrate on teaching the skills they require to achieve the grades they want. My role is not to replace the teaching they get at school but to compliment it so a tutoring session could concentrate on planning an essay the student has been asked to write or going through specific areas the student needs help with. I won't necessarily give homework - unless required - as I feel students have enough to do without me adding to their workload.

In return I expect my students to engage with the sessions. They don't have to like the subject and of course I'm there to help those who don't understand some things or just need a little help or encouragement, but the student must be prepared to be tutored.

Personal Description:
I am a family lady who enjoys seeing young people fulfil their full potential, both in education and in every day life skills.
I am a very encouraging and enthusiastic person and thoroughly enjoy teaching privately. I am a very friendly and approachable person who has a good sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher who has taught for over 20 years in senior and primary education. I also teach 1-1 private home tuition in Maths and English and have done this for the past 5 years. I teach privately from KS1 through to GCSE and use a variety of techniques to support pupil learning.
I am CRB checked and also hold a teaching qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are encouraging, confidence building and personally tailored to the individual needs of pupils that I teach, whether they need general support , help with preparing for exams or require special learning support due to dyslexia, autism etc.

Personal Description:
I am a second year student at Durham university, reading theology. I studied a subsidiary module in post A-Level French last year.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience leading and helping at activities camps for 8-15 year olds and 14-18 year olds and have previously volunteered at a club for young people with autism and ADHD. I have run philosophy lessons for younger students at school.
