Personal Description:
I have a first-class honours degree in History and a Master's degree in American Studies (History) from the University of Manchester. I wrote my Master's thesis on the negotiation of Arab and African American Muslim multiple identities through Islamic hip-hop in the post-9/11 period.

I'm a Marketing Executive at Capital Properties and manage marketing and communications for a number of high-profile commercial clients including Spinningfields and Old Granada Studios. I also work as a copywriter for Union Street Media Arts. I volunteer for Saheli (an Asian women's refuge) and I'm a mentor on the University of Manchester Gold Mentoring programme.

I love to read, write, paint and travel and I have a keen interest in hip-hop studies, music activism and human rights.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years' experience as a tutor having worked as a peer tutor at Bridgewater State University in the USA in 2008 and having since worked as a GCSE English tutor for the Tutor Trust (2011-12). At the Tutor Trust I delivered small group tuition and large group revision sessions in Manchester's disadvantaged schools and sixth form colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a structured approach to tutoring and develop a clear plan with objectives for the student and I to reach together. I work at the student's own pace and provide bespoke tuition which is tailored to the student's needs and learning style. My sessions are clear, engaging and stimulating.

My tutoring style is to facilitate rather than teach. I guide the student in the right direction and provide additional support with study skills, time management and organisation. Ultimately I encourage the student to build confidence in his/her own ability.

I also provide proofreading services for undergraduate, Master's and PHD theses. I check grammar and spelling to a very high standard and offer in-depth feedback on analysis/argument, structure, knowledge/understanding, sources and referencing, and style and presentation to help students achieve the grade that they are aiming for.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching in London schools for the last twenty years. I also work part time with an Education Centre and secondary school teachers to produce educational materials for the current national curriculum guidelines. My student centered approach strengthens academic weaknesses and ensures students are able to develop excellent skills in English Language and Literature, History, Sociology and Biology. My students have always achieved grade A and A*. I am able to encourage to both excel in their studies as well as enjoy the process. I am a British Asian woman and 47 years old and am able to travel to the pupils home.

Teaching Experience:

Using a student centred approach I work towards developing the full academic potential of the student. With the use of materials and methods which engage the student, I aim to strengthen the students understanding of their subject but also to develop the skills for higher level learning of applying the material to exam papers to achieve a high standard in their exams and assessments. I emphasise the importance of producing written work, engaging with academic materials, and applying academic knowledge/theory/ concepts to real situations. am able to keep the student focused and interested in what they are learning and create a stress free approach towards achieving high results. I am also conscious of the need for practical advice and support to reduce stress in the struggle to achieving high grades in exams. I am able to build on a students weak areas, draw on the students areas of interest in the discipline, provide a structure programme of work leading up to deadlines, give feedback on how to improve course / school work.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is always ensure the student aspires to the highest grade in their subject I aim to address the students weak areas and sharpen their ability to apply what they have learnt to exam type questions in exam conditions. I time the work, provide homework activities and ensure students develop the skills to produce their best work in timed conditions. I always teach students to understand what the themes and concepts and then apply them as well as remember facts.

Personal Description:
I am a young professional with a strong background in volunteer mentoring with children and young people, as well as a solid academic resume. I was home educated (tutorial-based) through primary and secondary school, and went on to study English Literature and History at the University of Edinburgh.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working since June 2011 at Mackenzie School of English, teaching English as a second language to foreign high school students.

Also, I have been a private tutor since February 2011, working with a range of ages and levels in both English Literature and History.

As well as my professional experience, I have been involved in youth work, summer camps, and one-to-one mentoring of young people for the past eight years or so. Working at summer camps has given me experience in both group work - teaching and leading discussions - as well as in one-to-one mentoring. Currently I am involved in a weekly youth club here in Leith, working with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from the local community.

Tutoring Approach:

Coming from a rather unconventional educational background, I would bring with me a deep passion for the need to create a tailored and bespoke educational experience for each individual young person. I know how incredible my own learning experience has been, instilling within me a value and love of learning that will remain with me my whole life. I would approach tutoring with this same passion. Learning excites and challenges me, and I believe that it has become limited in the classroom at times. When a young person can see someone else passionate and excited about an aspect of knowledge and understanding, the ramifications are huge. Not only does tutoring provide an avenue for this one-to-one mentoring, but I believe it is also the most powerful method of teaching. It is in that bond of mutual regard and respect that true learning occurs. These passions and beliefs are foundational to my approach of tutoring and mentoring.

Personal Description:
I'm a 22 year-old classics student on sabbatical from Oxford University. Besides Latin and Greek, I'm most keen to teach English, which I love.

I left Hampton School in 2009 with 5 A*s and 4 A's at GCSE and 4 A's at A-Level (this was before the A* grade was introduced). I will receive my bachelor's degree in the summer of 2016 and am predicted a First.

Teaching Experience:

I assisted teaching 11-13 year-olds during the Sixth Form. I would usually help children individually but I led the occasional class myself.

Since September 2012 I have been tutoring GCSE students in Latin, English Literature, and English as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to teach you the Oxford way: begin with a read aloud of a text, or ask for a brief summary of the topic studied for homework, and then discussion. My aim is to impart not only factual knowledge - the what - as understanding - the why. But if your son or daughter understands the blunt fact of Shakespeare's iambic pentameter or Virgil's dactylic hexameter, then specific examples its effective use will come and stay all the easier. I'm particularly good (if I say so myself) at teaching the prescriptive stuff, like metre and grammar, rigourously without being boring.

Still a student myself, I value patience, kindness and humour in my teachers, and I set these at the core of my teaching.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated, conscientious teacher with 29 years of teaching experience both within the independent and state sector. I have taught children from 3 to 13 years old in various subjects with different abilities. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills. I am dependable, responsible and extremely well organised. I am open to new ideas and learning strategies. I am caring and personable and believe every child matters. I aim to make a difference to every child and ensure that he/she becomes independent and self-confident with the skills and tools required to develop. I have the ability and resources to assess each child and then put together a progamme and timetable of the areas that need attention. I provide regular re-inforcement and praise and give feedback to the child and parents.
I have extensive knowledge of the educational curriculum and have had much experience of SATS papers and Common Entrance examinations.
Being a mother of 2 boys I know how children behave and how to get the best from them.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently providing 1:1 numeracy and literacy tuition in two Leeds schools. This involves one hour per child for a 10 week programme. I also run private tuition lessons from my own home or visiting children.
I am also a supply teacher for local teaching agencies.
Prior to this I worked from February 2000- September 2010 at Gateways School, Harewood, Leeds an independent school for girls. I was a form teacher for years 3,4,5 and 6 but specialised in RE and Latin.
From September 1997- August 2000 I was a supply teacher for Leeds Girls' High School, Leeds Grammar School and various state schools.
From September 1994 - August 1997 I was a form teacher at Beech House School, Headingley, Leeds.
From September 1990 to 1995 whilst having 2 boys of my own I taught various children from the ages of 4-11
From September 986 to January 1990 I was a form teacher for years 5 and 6 at Leeds Girls'High School

Tutoring Approach:

The main purpose of one to one tuition is to diagnose and address gaps in a child's learning and any misconceptions which may be deep rooted. It also provides a powerful opportunity to address personal and internalised processes and involves equipping the learner with appropriate strategies, new ways of thinking about a problem.
My first task is to find out from the parent/s what are their concerns about their child and what they are expecting. I would provide details of my extensive experience in providing 1:1 tuition and the success of achieving a programme that suits the individual needs of the child. A programme of lessons would be planned and then delivered using the following lesson format: -
*sharing objectives and learning outcomes with the child,
*identifying the pupils' knowledge, strategies and skills,
*modelling the process to be developed by talking it through,
*allowing the pupil to explore the activity independently as I observe and interact identifying the strengths and areas of misconception for attention and discussion
* revise the work, refining the child's knowledge, understanding and skills
* provide an opportunity to consolidate learning through further practice and discussion
* child reflects on the progress made towards the learning objective, the strategies used and how the skills and knowledge can be applied back in the classroom
*set targets

I would plan a range of varied activities to engage the pupil and support learning. I would provide opportunities for the pupil to talk, rehearse ideas and ask questions. The key to good practice is to praise successes to boost self confidence. I have a thorough understanding of what the pupil needs to be able to do to move forward.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly person with a good sense of humour. I like people and try to take a positive view of their difficulties and problems. I enjoy teaching English. I learn something new from my students all the time; it is so rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years. I have 25 years experience working with teenagers in a further education colleges, with younger people in schools and latterly in adult education. I was an AQA examiner in English for 5 years and understand most examination boards' set requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to agree long term goals broken down into small achievable tasks. If a student has a problem with any work I set I prefer them to contact me by telephone or email for further help rather than struggle on.

Personal Description:
I am currently at the University of Nottingham. I feel that I have a warm and welcoming personality which makes it very easy for students to feel comfortable around me. On top of that I think that I am a rather persuasive person which is arguably the key attribute needed by a private tutor.

Teaching Experience:

Having spent over a year in London as a private tutor I have had the pleasure of teaching all sorts of age groups and abilities. Many of my previous students were at GCSE level looking to improve their grades which has allowed me to familiarise myself with a variety of exam boards; both higher and foundation tier. These students also varied in age from year 9 all the way up to lower sixth. I have also taught year 7 and year 8 content with an aim to prepare them for the jump up to GCSE. I am also experienced with children ages ranging from 6 to 10.

Furthermore I have spent 6 months as a teaching assistant for a special needs school which has made me confident in working with a wide array of students.

Tutoring Approach:

When teaching I prefer to teach the subject as a whole as opposed to doing the bare minimum to get the grades required. My past experience has shown me that this approach works far better than lecturing bare-bone facts as it stimulates the student far more as well as allowing them to understand the subjects being taught much better as often exam syllabuses only teach snippets of a given topic which at times can make that topic very difficult to understand.

Personal Description:
I am 22 years of age and my roots are Iraqi, born and raised in Denmark and I moved to London at the age of 14. I therefore speak 3 different languages; Arabic, Danish and English.
I am currently studying my final year of Mechanical Engineering (BENG) at the University of Hertfordshire.
My desire is to be successful in the field of engineering by being able to improve the quality of life both practically and socially. I am a dedicated and a self-motivated person, always ready to learn and achieve personal and professional goals as I progress in life.

Teaching Experience:

I was representing the Brent Youth Volunteers in Brent Youth Parliament. This meant I had to work within the community of Brent, participate with the members from the Brent Youth Parliament, come up with good ideas, action plans, and most importantly talk for the people of the different issues in Brent.

I have experience in tutoring as I have taught for about a year up to GCSE and A-level.

Tutoring Approach:

I am available on weekends anytime between 9 am to 7 pm.

I would like to know beforehand if study material will be provided or if I am expected to provide anything.

I can tutor boys and girls, however I do not tutor at homes unless you are a male due to religious reasons

Personal Description:
Recently relocated to Winchester from Manchester. I have two teen aged children. I have an Honours Degree in English and European Literature, Postgraduate Diploma in Business Studies, and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I began a Masters' degree in English Language Tradition some years ago at the University of Sheffield, which sadly had to be curtailed due to employment relocation. However iI still have a life long enthusiasm for the english language and have recently applied as a volunteer on the English Project in Winchester.

My past employment has always been around student support and educational services, working as a quasi civil servant with overseas diplomats for the Royal Institute of Public Administration, and then in student support and management roles in 3 UK Universities.

Most recently I have undertaken voluntary learning support roles in a primary school, where I was also a school governor for 5 years, and have been actively involved in the ongoing education of primary school children, having input onto both the marketing and curriculum committees at the school. I worked part time as a playground assistant, so am familiar and sympathetic at working with children at all levels.

I am a sympathetic and organised worker, and am passionate about learning and helping children and adults achieve their potential, and to use their abilities to succeed and be happy in life. I believe I have excellent communication and interpretative skills, I find it easy to build up relationships with children/students at all levels.

I constantly update and instruct myself with updates and developments in Education generally and very familiar with aspects of government policy/OFSTED requirements. I am an avid reader, enjoy film, theatre and politics, I could not face the weekends without a newspaper!

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching English as A Foreign Language, inspired by working with Overseas Civil Servants, working at International House on Piccadilly for a few months and then moved out to Language skills in Tarragona, Spain.
I taught language skills to children ranging from 5 -18 and then did some Literature classes with University students at the University of Tarragona ( three years). I also taught on two summer skills at the Living Language Centre in Rochester, Kent.

Whilst being an 'at home parent' for some years, I was able to give private tuition classes in English and Business to foreign nationals in Cambridge and The Manchester area, gave some spanish classes at my children's primary school, and have been involved in informal tutoring of friends and colleagues.

Tutoring Approach:

I consider myself a good listener, so I think the first steps in helping students of any age achieve their potential is to asses where they are 'now' and listen to where they want to get to, and what they want to achieve. Education is about success and providing student with possibilities, gateways to get to where they want to go. Obviously, at GCSE level, for example, there is a national curriculum which has to be applied and learned, but there are ways to develop students' interest and relevance to the subject, to inspire them to make them want to achieve the desired outcome. I have had good outcomes with University Students, for example, by trying to foster a willingness and desire to learn by making the subject relevant to them. It is not just a case of 'spoon feeding', but of equipping any age learner with the skills and techniques to encourage learning and growth.
There are many different types of learners, and it is essential for any tutor to find out what category of learner their tutee is, and work with this, setting goals, targets and outcomes, not necessarily 'overtly', but as a way for the tutee to feel they are progressing.

I have a good sense of humour, am sensitive to the difficulties some learners face, and enjoy the 'teamworking' aspect of tutoring, working to arrive at outcomes.
