Personal Description:
Having graduated from university with a first class degree reading English, I am passionate about books and literature. I received 79% for my dissertation, where 80% is deemed worthy of academic publication and can provide a reference from my tutor to support this. I am a focused, determined, enthusiastic and willing individual with an aim to help students and adults engage and understand literature and the issues surrounding it.

I am currently employed as an Instructional Designer, building e-learning courses for schools, businesses and individuals. Due to this, I am more than able to teach people how to use Microsoft Office products, having lead and developed an approved ECDL course, which was provided to schools and businesses. The ECDL course consists of basic training on how to use Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Access, alongside Outlook and the Internet.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a number of individuals using UK Tutors, from Primary level to Masters. In the summer of 2008, I spent nine weeks working with children and adults at a special needs camp in America. This experience was extremely rewarding and taught me the importance of patience and communication. I have recently returned from travelling where I taught at an underprivileged school in Cambodia.

Tutoring Approach:

Studying English Literature allows you to interpret a text in a number of different ways. Therefore my approach to tutoring will be tailored to the individual and their attitude and responsiveness to literature. I am patient and willing to explain things using a variety of different methods to ensure the student has a full understanding of the topic.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English with many years of study, research and training in some of the world's top universities. My qualifications include a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in English Literature and the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in English, including Media Studies and Drama. My Initial Teacher Training covered all aspects of English and all abilities in the 11-18 age range. My interests, of benefit to many students especially at university level, include Critical Theory, Classical Literature, and African Literature. I have guided many students doing research and proof-read their dissertations. I have also taken the official training for one-to-one tutors rolled out by the government to complement classroom teaching. I also have experience as a GCSE English examiner for Edexcel and gained the status of Senior Examiner serving as Team Leader from the June 2013 exam series.

Teaching Experience:

My first teaching appointment came in 1988 in Cameroon where I taught English and African Literature, becoming an 'A' Level examiner for the Cameroon GCE examination board in 1990. I later took the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to the PGCE, finishing my last year as Education Student of the Year in my university and receiving a national commendation for the quality of my work. I have since taught in different schools in Kent and Medway, preparing students for exams such as Functional Skills, IELTS, GCSE, 'A' Level, IB and AEA. I have also given one-to-one tuition to looked-after teenagers under a government scheme as well as taught in a secure unit for which, in addition to enhanced disclosure CRBs, I was vetted over a six month period. My first long-term (over 3 months) supply position involved teaching GCSE English, 'A' Level English Literature, and the IB. Most of my teaching has been in selective (grammar) schools. I have also given English lessons in my local community as part of an outreach programme organised for speakers of other languages by my church where I teach Bible Studies also.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to establish the needs of the students and carefully review all available assessment records. If the student is preparing for a special exam such as the GCSE, I would start by ensuring that the student is aware of the full requirements of the exam and establish a clear plan to cover these. Alongside any such programme, I believe strongly in incorporating the fundamentals of English grammar which are sometimes overlooked in formal teaching settings. I like to build a good rapport with the student so that they are comfortable revealing possible areas of weakness that we could turn into strengths.

Personal Description:
I am a bubbly, outgoing person who loves teaching.
I was made redundant from my role on the Crime and Disorder Partnership where I was challenged to proactively tackle crime in the area.
I then decided to persue my career as a private tutor and teacher, having done it as a hobby for 3 years and found I have a passion for this field, this is now my sixth year of tutoring and have had lots of successes and am proud of all my tutees; past and present.
I can sometimes travel to you if required but prefer if I can tutor from my home.
I am available evenings and daytime and will allow single lessons or block bookings.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach maths in a secondary school and previously taught functional skills IT to level 1 and 2
I have 2 years experience in the Public Sector working with young people and adults tackling crime and disorder through engagement and educational projects.
I have previously tutored many children to GCSE Maths and can provide references if required

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual and relish the challenge of helping each boy or girl achieve their targets. I have an excellent rapport with children and all those I teach feel that I am very approachable, easy to talk to, kind and caring. I try to make learning fun.
I can provide one off sessions to tackle problem areas or intense revision help.

Personal Description:
I have studied a broad range of subjects during my Bachelor's degree (English and Classics, RHUL) and Master's (Comparative Art and Archaeology with Law, UCL). My main interests lie in English literature of the Victorian and Medieval periods, Fin de Siecle Art and Theory and Archaeology.

Aside from my studies I play a lot of sport (lacrosse, rugby and athletics) and have captained teams at national and regional level. Due to my teaching experience (see below) I am comfortable working with children through to adults on a broad range of subjects.

I am dedicated to providing all my students with the time they need to improve, thus will only take a certain amount of students at a time. At the moment, I have space for 2 A-level students and 2 more Higher Education students.

Teaching Experience:

German, Maths and Drama Teaching Assistant - Chancellor's School - 2006/2007

English and Drama Tutor - Study Zone 2008

English/Maths Teacher and Head of Year 11 Corona Theatre School 2011-2012 [Reference Available]

Tutoring Approach:

Academic experience: I have worked in private tutoring, state and private schools, university departments and know how examiners mark and what they expect. I have worked for 2 prestigious Universities and am adept at entrance documents and applications. In addition, one needs to be constantly aware of the changing curricula, mark schemes, and student specifications, knowledge and understanding of which can guarantee a 95%+ grade.

Encouragement: As a sports captain, Head of Year prefect and Global Citizenship Mentor (UCL) I realise the need for a pupil's confidence to be built up before they can achieve better. In my opinion a pupil is never failing, they can just achieve more.

Planning: It is essential for us to have an organised lesson plan, and plan for our future sessions so we can map where we should be heading and what we have achieved. Many students suffer from poor organisation which, if remedied, would immediately proffer far better results.

Education: During my past 8 years of college, undergraduate and graduate university I have been educated in a host of valuable disciplines that help interest and inspire any student.

Personal Description:
I am a professional and dedicated native English teacher with years of experience behind me.

Teaching Experience:

I have gained TEFL experience within varied teaching roles, both abroad and in the UK. In my previous roles I have worked with children, teenagers, and adults in companies, schools, and summer camps. I have taught General English, Business English, and exam classes to groups and one-to-one students in school and business environments. I also have experience of teaching students with dyslexia. This variety has enabled me to continually assess my style of teaching and keep me on my toes!

Working in such roles has given me crucial insight into the needs of the student. I am extremely patient and understand the frustration that can arise when learning, whether it is a new language or subject. I realise that people acquire knowledge through varied means so I am keen to adjust my teaching style to benefit my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a mature, responsible, and eclectic teaching approach, as well as a good sense of humour, is crucial for a successful learning environment.

I offer a custom-made service, whether you need to improve your general English skills, your writing, or simply build your confidence. I also have years of experience in teaching Business English and Exam English (IELTS/FCE/CAE). Whatever you need help with, I am happy to focus my lessons on what you require.

I offer Skype lessons and professional proofreading for people who may not be able to meet face-to-face.

I am available to tutor at your home, workplace, or in a quiet cafe in Central London. I can also tutor in Cambridge.

Personal Description:
I am a family man, married 10 years to my wife Mel, with 3 beautiful daughters. I have been tutoring in the South Wales area since 1992 after graduating in Chemical Engineering with 2nd (Hons) Degree from University of Glamorgan. My hobbies include wordwide travel, Triathlon, Motorcycles/Cars and anything to do with science and maths.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating in Summer 1992 with an Honours Degree in Chemical & Process Engineering from the University of Glamorgan, I set up my tutoring business to assist parents & pupils with examination preparation, who felt they were being let down by the educational system.

I worked as an examiner for the WJEC from 1997 to 2002 marking Maths papers.

I currently teach on a 1-2-1 basis or in small groups, usually {but not exclusively} in the privacy of the pupils home, in the following subjects:-

* Key stages 1 to 4 {GCSE} in Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Engineering, Design and Technology, Electronics.

* 'A' Levels {GCE} in Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics

* BTEC Engineering, Nursing & Health Care courses, Paramedics, Sports Science.

* Degrees in Engineering - Chemical, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Aerospace, and Nursing.

* UKCAT Entrance exams to Medicine and Dental school.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly prepare students for examinations using past paper practise to build up their self confidence and develop the ability to read and digest each exam question.

During the interim term time, I conduct 'student led' lessons, where each of my pupils is able to tell me what they want to learn; whether it be new material, homework assistance or revision of old topics.

I structure my lessons this way because I teach many different students of varying abilities, who are studying at different levels and using different exam boards e.g. WJEC, OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL.

In 2014, I passed a Masters Degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Lyon, France (Honors: 2:1) and a French IT Certificate for Teachers (C2i2e). I am currently working on a distance course to pass a DAEFLE through the Alliance FranÁaise, Paris, in order to become a French as a Foreign Language teacher.

Teaching Experience:

2007 - 2015: private tuition to students of all ages in English and French.

I am dynamic and motivated and I think that working in tandem with my students to develop new learning methods that are adapted to their needs is the best way to achieve their learning goals. I love learning more about languages and foreign cultures in general and I would be delighted to share that with you!

Personal Description:
I'm Joe Ee and I'm just graduated from my degree in Accounting & Finance at Coventry University, West Midlands and attending Masters degree in September 2015 for MSc in Finance in Birmingham.

I enjoy sports, staying active and love to interact with people especially kids. I enjoy teaching and learning new things from different people.

I'm offering Tutoring from August 2015 onwards for students who wish to prepare for their daily homeworks in primary level to secondary level/learning extra language such as Mandarin.

Obviously since I'm young and fairly inexperienced I'm willing to offer tuition for very competitive rates. And I can speak for more than 3 languages. (Mandarin, Cantonese, English and Malay)
I am a very patient, understanding and relaxed tutor.
I am adaptable and knowledgeable of different methods of teaching and learning.

Teaching Experience:

Even Though I am still very young, I still have some teaching experience especially home tutoring for students who need help and monitor for their daily homeworks and preparing for school examinations.

I felt this benefited the students concerned and I personally felt great satisfaction in helping these students understand their learning in any way possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that it is very important to encourage the student to consistently practice what he/she has learned in class or in session. This is particularly important for primary/secondary students in order to form a good habit of learning; I say this from my own very recent personal experiences. Cliche says " Practice makes perfect". Spending some extra time on studies really does to improve child's learning capabilities Time is of the essence so I feel it's important to spend the tutoring session as productively as possible, helping to perfect the student's exam technique and demonstrating how to approach certain topics.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified, very experienced teacher who is committed to providing the kind of support I would expect my own children to receive from a private tutor.
Tutoring is my main occupation which gives me the time (and energy!) to commit fully to developing the potential of my students through well planned and resourced activities.

Teaching Experience:

Having been a classroom teacher for 16 years, I continue to enjoy helping students achieve their full potential. I have taught students with a wide range of educational requirements and adapted my teaching in order to provide the best guidance and support.
Also, I have been a specialist English leader in a primary setting and, latterly, a member of a Senior Management Team. Fulfilling these roles required an in-depth knowledge of the Curriculum and the skills to make it accessible and enjoyable for all.
My experience has also included teaching smaller groups requiring more focussed support in English and Maths and for test preparation.
In addition, I have taught English as a Foreign Language to children and adults, specialising in functional English.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning should be a very positive experience. Sometimes, for a range of reasons, learners may become disenchanted. I am aware that individuals do not all learn in the same way and it is my aim to give targeted support, the right level of challenge and, most importantly, personalised guidance delivered with patience and kindness.
My own enthusiasm for learning and my sense of humour have proved successful with students, in particular those requiring a confidence boost in order to make further or more rapid progress.
My hourly rates cover travel up to 15 miles. However, I am willing to travel further for a small, additional fee to cover mileage and time.
