Personal Description:
I am someone who very much enjoys teaching and helping others to achieve their own personal best. It is very important to me that my students enjoy their lessons, continue improving in their ability and I am always happy to receive feedback on how the student feels throughout our work together.
As the mother of four grown children, the youngest being twenty four years old, I am someone who is very empathetic towards young people and adults who need my help. Together with my teaching, I work as a volunteer for two charities; this has given me a great deal of experience at working with others, helping them to the best of my ability.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a variety of schools, both State and Independent, have a great deal of experience at teaching English, preparing pupils for Common Entrance examinations and have co-ordinated English at Key Stages 3 and 4. I have also been in charge of co-ordinating PHSE and have been in charge of a Foundation Year for overseas students. Furthermore, I have a great deal of experience in teaching both able children and those who who have specific learning difficulties, helping them to grow in confidence and to realise that they can do well.
I have always been a popular and conscientious teacher and have helped many young people do very well in public and Common Entrance examinations, often helping them to achieve results they and their parents had only dreamed of. I am equally happy teaching young people and adults and I will endeavour to make any lessons I teach enjoyable and educational.


I have tutored for several years, and very much enjoy working in a one-to-one situation.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a simple and effective one. I work out what a pupil needs and work hard to ensure that they achieve the right tuition to achieve their own personal best. I build up a good rapport with my students and have remained friends with many of my students and their parents since working with them. It is important that a student feels confident in their own ability and I always work hard to ensure that a student feels a great sense of achievement in what they do. My approach is enthusiastic, energetic and sympathetic, resulting in a good experience for those concerned who are working with me.

Personal Description:
I work as a Solicitor, working in a busy High-street Firm. I have been working for 5 years. I have been tutoring for the past 7 years and it is something I enjoy immensely.

I am able to obtain all exam papers and mark schemes, in order to help the students.

I am very patient with my students and can keep a calm temperament. I will assist my students in any way possible, in order for them to reach their maximum potential.

As a person, I am very approachable and like-able. This is also my approach as a tutor as I aim to make my students feel comfortable. All the students I have taught have provided me with positive feedback, as they have enjoyed sessions and feel they can relate to my style of teaching.

I am also able to provide sessions in order to assist with coursework deadlines etc and general English speaking and writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 7 years, with a wide-range of students, from GSCE to Degree level. In addition to this, I have continued tutoring my younger brother, who has now completed his LLB and he further provides me with constructive feedback and the up-to date course material.

I have taught around 40 students, with varying abilities levels, although I have succeeded in helping them improve.

Tutoring Approach:

I take tutoring very seriously and approach each student on their own merits. I am recently qualified I'm my area for work, therefore my approach to teaching is relatively up-to date and contemporary. My recollection of School confirms that the classes in which I excelled, were the ones where the teacher would take an active-role in class. I have incorporated this into my teaching method. I have an individualised teaching approach and adapt my style to the student's needs.

If any students require one-off sessions, for help with coursework or exams, I am able to provide this.
With the exam period forthcoming, I have experience in going through exam techniques and revision methods.

Personal Description:
**11+ Entrance Exams: Having successfully tutored my son 11+ exams for Tiffin School, I decided to tutor other students in preparation for Grammar School entrance exams. I coach specific techniques, short cuts and tips that enable students to gain competitive advantages; to be "ahead of the games".


**11+ Verbal Reasoning (VB) is problem solving using vocabulary, language and mathematical skills. I coach students how to completing sequence, working out numerical codes, logical reasoning, mathematical reasoning, alphabet reasoning, word codes, patterns, anagram, coded sequences etc. My tuition helps to develop students' word power, vocabulary range and reasoning skills.

**11+ Non Verbal Reasoning (NVB) is solving problems using patterns and shapes. I emphasize tackling questions on analogies, codes, similarities, series, components, patters, layering, movements, manipulations, odd one out, matrices, elements, logic etc.; There are about 21 types of question set by GL Assessment, e.g. identifying, rotating, missing coded shapes etc. Strategies of ensuring students to master techniques thoroughly to a high level, understanding the instructions and information, training students to "think on feet" and coping with the unexpected will be implemented in my tuition.

**11+ English: I prepare students for their Comprehension and Creative Writing skills, including story plot ideas, structure, dialogues, endings, character development, grammatical knowledge, vocabulary, sentence structure, spelling, grammar and punctuation. I am able to assist students in building confidence, reaching full potentials and stretching abilities whilst maintaining high academic performances.

**11+ Maths: Apart from training on mental arithmetic and core maths skills, I ensure students not to get bored with numbers and formulas by introducing an element of fun into lessons, e.g. playing maths games, puzzles at the end of the session. I familiar students with a wide range of key questions types, layout, format and topics, identifying individual needs, and targeting weak areas, boost scores and confidence, highlighting strengths and weakness in the core skills.



**QTS Numeracy Skills Test:

Understandably many candidates find their mental arithmetic skills have gone bit "rusty" over the years and revisit some areas in general mathematics and statistics is certainly a must when attempting a pass for the first time.

My "Speed Methods" of calculation enable candidates to solve Mental Maths questions against limited time; "accuracy and speed" coming hand in hand. In addition, I teach Interpretation of Graphs and Data, helping candidates to identify trends and patterns; interpret statistical information; make comparison and draw conclusions when answering multi-stage questions.

I group similar questions together; teach students how to make notes; look out for key phrases; draw on the graphs; identify students' common mistakes…..

A basic "spoon feeding" style makes my tutees understand the techniques easily and quickly. They soon become competent in the mental arithmetic's area with speed; grasp the knowledge of the conversion between fractions, decimals and percentages. Many tutees found my tuition useful and passed their QTS Numeracy Skills Tests after my effective coaching.



**Mandarin Chinese: I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker, fluent in English and experienced in tutoring for children and adults at all levels; whether it is for business, exams, travel or leisure. Familiar with the required syllabus and criteria, I'm efficient to prepare GCSE, IGCSE, IB, A Level & University Degree Chinese exams etc. HSK or YCT.

For the Pre-Modern Chinese Literature exam, translation, interpretation, comparison and comment on Chinese Classical Poems are taught; focusing on essay writing skills for Chinese History and Thought Exams.

I helped university student's Mandarin Grade from "Fail" to "2:1", tackling four areas of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing skills improvement.


** Maths subjects (KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE, A Level): Familiar with the National Curriculum, I stretch students' abilities and potentials. GCSE and A level Maths students have improved their grades and confidence following my tuition. I have proven records of raising Grade E to C, Grade D to B and Grade C to A Star. I cover Edexcel, AQA, OCR, IGCSE and IB Maths.



** A Level Sociology and Psychology: Lots of practices of exam style questions and exam techniques are the keys to gain that top mark. I aim to improve student's exam performances by going through examples and activities to develop their abilities of self-assessment or peer-assessment; thus focus on teaching essay writing skills in the format, styles used by major exam boards' Mark Schemes following the syllabus and specifications. Students will be asked to practise past papers questions under timed condition. After weak areas are highlighted, a checklist of comments and marking will be provided.
I teach how to have most focused way to approach exam questions in order to gain maximum marks in a variety of ways:

-write essays as close as to the "Model Answers";

- "read questions"(to understand what is exactly being asked), to select relevant materials, to plan and construct essays with a sharp opening, main content and closing paragraphs, using link sentences, attention to grammar and punctuation;

- use "key phrases/words" throughout an answer; link data item to the questions which give more focused responses rather than a "knowledge list";

-develop students' abilities of evaluation, analysis, interpretation and application; integrate knowledge and understanding with context and testing claims giving a "critical edged flavour" to the essays ;

-identify alternative claims and refer them in the answer. My teaching methods and styles for A level Sociology & Psychology enable students to be active learners, not just sit and absorb knowledge passively. Students gained Grade A in the re-sits after my tuition defeating previous Grade D taught by their own school teachers.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching methods have enabled many pupils to successfully get into a variety of Grammar Schools (including Tiffin Girls, Langley. Slough Grammar etc). I am able to assist students in building their confidence, reaching their full potentials and stretching their abilities whilst maintaining high academic performances.

In addition, my teaching style is geared towards building problem solving skills, improving accuracy and speed, providing remedial work for those struggling as well as making study interesting and engaging.

Lessons are flexibly planned to tailor teaching in a way that meets the individual's needs, suits each one`s cognitive ability and learning pace. Realistic targets are set and weekly manageable amounts of homework are given with regular assessment to monitor progress.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm methodical, reliable and friendly. I'm able to help students with their understanding and make complex concepts simple.

I enjoy working with children as I enjoy the challenge and the atmosphere.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring young children for the past sevenyears now whilst studying and working myself. My main age range is 4-16years

I have previously done placements in primary schools and nurseries as part of my GCSE coursework which involved me analysing young childrens behaviour.
I have also helped out in the brownies and in the Catholic youth club.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child has a different method of learning, however it is important they all know the basic set cirriculum. Thus I adapt my method of teaching to suit the child's abilities but ensure the correct knowledge is attained by the child.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old Primary PGCE student, with a range of experience working with children and young people. In particular, I have worked with children who experience barriers to learning and I enjoy aiding them to experience success in education. I am a fun but hard-working and reliable individual with a passion for working with children.

Teaching Experience:

Before embarking on my current course, I worked as a teaching assistant in both primary and post-primary settings. I provided support to children with English as an additional language and with special educational needs in both settings. I was responsible for planning, setting targets and assessment of the children I worked with. I also supervised a Homework Club, providing assistance to post-primary children in various subjects including children with special education needs and those who are gifted and talented. During this 2 year period, I tutored a number of children in the evenings on a one to one basis ranging in age from Year 1 to Year 6, and I developed very positive relationships with the families I worked with.

I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and during university placements, often took on a teaching role working with children one-to-one or in small groups; assessing and delivering therapy in a child-centred approach. I have completed my first school placement for my PGCE course; I worked in a Year 1 class in which I observed and evaluated the class teacher, then taught lessons independently.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe using a child-centred approach is key to success. I consider what might interest and motivate the child in terms of resources and materials, and work at a pace appropriate for the child. It is important for the child to experience success but also to be appropriately challenged in order to reach their potential. I embrace a fun approach when working with children and would like to provide them with a positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
I recently retired from teaching where I had been a class teacher and held posts of responsibility from core subject leader for English, Maths and science to Special Needs coordinator, Behaviour Manager and more recently a Head and Deputy headteacher.
I have loved working with children for well over 30 years and believe there is no better or more fulfilling a job than to work with children. I also know, having had 7 children myself, that they can be challenging and frustrating as well as wonderfully fulfilling.
Children get one chance to succeed. We as parents often feel frustrated and helpless when trying to help our children understand a concept they are struggling with. Our lack of understanding of the method, a lack of confidence in our ability to support them and their reluctance to have 'mum or dad' show them leads to frustration.
This is where a tutor can help both parents and child. We all need a little help or support at some time.This can be a short or long term programme of support - a confidence boost or a more structured programme of support. This is where an experienced hand is invaluable.
I am very caring and supportive teacher who prides himself on preparing an individual support programme to meet the needs of the tutee and is delivered using approaches to match their learning styles and utilising approaches that support their learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in secondary and primary schools for over 30 years. For the last 25 years I have a been a primary school teacher and senior leader specialising in supporting children with special needs and especially those less and more able pupils with English and Maths.
In addition, I was a mentor in local secondary schools where I was responsible for supporting pupils aged 11-16 in a number of curriculum areas. These study skills, exam preparation, as well as, curricular areas like English, Maths and science. Many of whom where tutored on an individual basis.
I have worked for 2 years now as a tutor. Most of my students come from referrals from my current parents, which I take great pride in. I am confident that the children I tutor receive the highest quality support because work is individually prepared for them, their progress is monitored and parents see the results very quickly.
I also work as an independent TEFL teacher working with children from across the world aged from 5 -50 years. Some of these are groups but I now specialise in one to one support which enables me to use my tutoring skills to greater effect.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I believe it is important to follow some very key principles.
1. Always start from what the tutee knows therefore I always start with some sort of baseline analysis. This is always carried out in a very informal and relaxed manner. This enables me as a tutor you need to identify what he/she can and cannot do.
2. I am always happy to work closely with the tutees school if agreed/wanted to identify areas they are working on to support school work.
3. Work in an environment where the tuttee feels safe and comfortable. Very often this is at home in an area to work quietly.
4. Make the learning as much fun as possible and as appropriate and individual to their needs.
4.To create , as quickly as possible, a relationship with the tutee. They need to feel safe, comfortable and at ease - this makes both learning and teaching more effective.

Personal Description:
I have recently returned to the UK after a number of years of teaching overseas, mainly in schools in the Arabian Gulf. I began teaching in the mid-1970's, so have a wealth of experience of a range of educational qualifications. I also have experience in managing schools, up to and including at Principal level.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my career, I have always taught English Language and Literature, mostly to Secondary age students, covering O and A Levels, GCSE and IGCSE, as well as TOEFL, IELTS and US SATs. I have taught large classes in UK secondary schools, as well as small groups in international schools. My students have frequently succeeded up to and beyond their expectations at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one-to-one tutoring helps, above all, to encourage and support a young person, who may be feeling that they are not succeeding in their school studies. I prefer to tutor in the student's home environment as this helps in boosting his or her confidence. I have tutored many students throughout my career, and I would say that my approach is demanding but fair.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English, and also hold a BA and PhD in English literature. In addition to my 11-18 teaching experience, I have also taught literature at undergraduate level. Up to the present, I have been working as a full-time teacher of English in a secondary school (11-18), but have recently decided to seek more flexible teaching work in order to devote more time to my growing family.

Teaching Experience:

As a secondary school teacher of English (11-18), an excellent understanding of pupils and how they learn is an essential part of my role. I have experience of teaching English at both KS3, GCSE and A-Level. As a former university tutor and academic I am also particularly equipped to help older pupils through the process of completing A-Levels and competing for University positions and employment. Overall, I feel that my extensive experience both within and without the field of English teaching equips me to help pupils achieve their fullest potential. In addition, I hold a Diploma in Interior Design, and offer private tuition and home schooling in Textiles at GCSE and A-Level.

Tutoring Approach:

My style of teaching encourages pupils to enhance their own reading and writing skills, as well as providing essential support. I understand that different pupils have different needs and different learning styles, and I always endeavor to find an approach to teaching that will engage my particular pupil. I like variety and excitement in the lessons and tuition that I deliver, but at the same time I insist on a rigorous approach to study and especially to writing.

Personal Description:
I am a tutor, proof-reader and copy-editor. I live in Newcastle and operate primarily in the North-East of England. However, I am perfectly happy to offer online tuition to anyone from other regions. Hence, I am prepared to take on students of any disposition. These can be the nervous and struggling type to the confident and capable type.

I am also happy to provide services throughout the entire year. These can be for winter and summer exams at GCSE, A level and even university level. I am also happy to offer tuition for university summer resit exams. On top of this, I offer a student proof-reading and copy-editing service. This service is available to anyone from any discipline. I am prepared to look over anyone's essays, dissertations or even PhD thesis. Note: all essays will be sent through a plagiarism software detector.

Outside of tutoring, my personal interests include: baking, creative writing, exercise (running and walking) and fiction (books, films and TV). Whenever I have time, I volunteer for a local Church and education.

Teaching Experience:

I have done classroom work at Gateshead Volunteering and Opportunities Centre and New College Durham. My duties involved: helping struggling students with classroom activities, helping them to express themselves and dealing with classroom behavioural issues. When working with students, I was noted for being approachable, compassionate, kind and patient.

On top of this, I have given guest lessons in Theology and Religious studies at Leeds Trinity University College, Jesmond Methodist Church, Gosforth High School and the Royal Grammar School. Since I started tutoring in the North East, I have tutored students from Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, Gosforth and Sunderland.
Both teachers and students have acknowledged my sessions as organised, stimulating and thorough.

Tutoring Approach:

Exactly how I conduct the lessons depends on the needs of the tutee. However, most tutees that I have met require help with additional knowledge and essay-writing. Thus, the approach that I usually take is as follows. I divide the lesson into two parts.

For the first half, I will have a discussion with the tutee on a particular topic. To help the tutee prepare for the discussion, I will give him / her: a detailed hand-out on the topic, some discussion questions and (if necessary) a brief background on the important key thinkers.

For the second half, I will teach the tutee essay-writing techniques. To help him / her with this exercise, I will teach the tutee an essay-writing formula. We will then apply this to past-paper questions. I will then look over these questions and return them with detailed feedback for how to improve. When necessary, I will provide pastoral support for exam stress.

Testimonies from previous tutees:

"Michael has been an incredibly reliable tutor, the lessons were very well planned and clearly thought out. It was very helpful that he was willing to cater to individual learning styles and willing to respond to feedback. I think that he would be most helpful for those doing GCSEs and A Levels. Overall, a positive experience, he put in maximum effort to the tutoring sessions."

Hannah Blanchflower.

"You always prepared for each session sending materials prior to the tutoring. You are a very committed teacher, dedicated and caring. You impressed Anna with your knowledge and broadened and deepened her thoughts and ideas as well as her vocabulary. She would not have achieved her grade B if it was not for you. Thank you so much for all your help and support."

Ann Bolton

"Michael is a dedicated, supportive and patient tutor, and took the time to create tutoring sessions which were designed with jack's learning style in mind. Michael gave excellent advice and guidance in his subject in preparation for both the AS RE exam, but also essay writing techniques for A2 as he knew this was an area which Jack needed help in developing his skills. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael's services to anyone. Thank you Michael for your help and support!"

Suzanne Auty

"Rachel was home educated and had chosen Religious Studies as a GCSE in February and the exam was in June so she and Michael had their work cut out for them! Michael worked with Rachel helping her to direct her studies and fill in the gaps of her knowledge. He discussed concepts to give her a more well-rounded understanding of the subject and helped her structure her answers for a GCSE exam. He did all this in an engaging manner which resulted in Rachel developing a real interest and enjoyment of the subject and she achieved an A* in her exam! Michael is a very dedicated and supportive tutor and we would highly recommend him!"

Sharon Yankoo

"Michael gives my son Joe tutoring, which Joe was rather dubious about to begin with, however it is working well. He is studying for A levels and has dyslexia, I wanted a tutor that could vary their teaching method to accommodate a dyslexic learner and he has done that. Michael clarifies at the start of each session what will be covered, ensures that is what my son requires and at the end that he has understood the session."

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher, with over 12 years experience in both post 16 and mainstream education. My position prior to that, was that of Programme Area Manager, at a 6th Form College in North London.
As such, the development of students is at the heart of everything I do, and my aim is to always to help them to achieve their goals, build their self confidence, and develop the essential skills to help them become successful and well rounded adults. Having worked in a number of schools and colleges, with a variety of challenging students of all ages and abilities, I recognised that every child needs a different approach to their learning, as each has specific learning needs. My role over the years has been to provide the necessary support and guidance to each individual student according to his or her needs.
Being also a semi-professional musician and teacher of music and Music Technology, I have a very good understanding of both the creative as well as the more academic type of student, and have developed strategies to be able to support and develop all students.

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching at Primary level, coaching in various North London Schools. From their I went on to teach young persons and adults at a College in Essex, and did this for 6 years before taking a role as programme area manager at a a North London College. I have had many supply teaching roles in colleges and secondary education, and I am currently working as a freelance teaching for a North London Academy, and a Private organisation in East London.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to instil, build and develop self confidence, and belief, and also to make sessions fun and enjoyable, using a variety of hands on practical activities, and teaching methods, so the students develop a genuine love and desire for the subject. With my teaching methods, which is very much more of a coaching model, students make progress rapidly, and achieve their goals and aims, and leave sessions feeling fulfilled and feeling that they have accomplished something substantial. Most cant wait for the next session.

Personal Description:
My name is Nicole and I am an 18 year old student at the University of Surrey. I am studying English Literature and Creative Writing, and have aspirations to be a teacher in the future. I'm very dedicated to my work, and am an avid reader. My particular focus is English, however I have an extensive background in Business and a long-term interest in Maths and Physics.

Teaching Experience:

I hold very little official teaching experience, however I have often worked with younger students and children. I was a prefect in my school, and often tutored and taught those in lower years on both a formal and an informal basis. I have a past in working with a variety of children of all ages due to my family background. I do have a Junior Sports Leader qualification, the acquisition of which involved me planning lessons and teaching PE classes to 9-11 year old students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am dedicated to helping students be the best they can be, and reach their full potential. As I am still in education, and have only recently left the school environment, I can work closely with students as someone who understands their own opinions and worries but also the importance of their success. I aim to be not just an educator but a confidant and someone they can rely on to help them manage the stresses of school life.
