Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old tutor based in south east London. For the past twelve years I have been teaching pupils of all ages and abilities in many different capacities and have an excellent success rate with my pupils.

I also work with children with behavioural difficulties/learning disabilities and with adults of all ages and nationalities.

Should you wish to use me, you would encounter a tutor easy to relate to and learn from in an enjoyable and easy environment. I believe a student who is abler ease with their tutor is far more likely to progress no matter where they are starting from!

I hope very much to hear from you soon.

2006-Present: Private Tuition in in all subjects and age ranges offered throughout London.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe one to one private tuition requires a tutor who can adapt to the needs of the pupil.

I would wish to meet the pupil initially to establish how they may best be assisted and what the pupil's key areas of concern are.

In short, each mind, young or old, needs different approaches and I believe my strongest ability is an adaptability to meet the varying needs and requirements of every student.

My approach, in most cases would be to follow a curriculum, finding out where their difficulties lie within this curriculum and how it would be best to resolve them.

I tend to use past papers when it comes to exam based tuition as this is ultimately what they will be faced with come exam time! However, when I have a pupil for longer there is more scope for more imaginative teaching or simply assistance with difficult homework.

With each of my previous pupils I have needed and been able to assist them in a way that is individually appealing to them and I have never had a pupil who has not achieved their desired results.

Personal Description:
I am a caring and patient teacher . I develop good relationships with my pupils and care about their general well being. I adapt teaching aproaches to suit individual pupils to enable them to engage with the learning in a postive and supportive way. Children say they like my lessons and enjoy being tutored by me.
If you home school your child I can provide tutoring of a specific subject area fit around your timetable and the way your child prefers to learn.
I am also a parent of boys with SEN,(dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and adhd) and have a good knowledge of special education needs and the impact of these on teaching, learning and home life.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 5 years in the primary age range and really enjoy it. I have been privately tutoring for 6 years covering both all literacy areas and maths. I have up-to-date training in the new grammar, spelling and punctuation KS2 SAT's paper. In the area of spelling, I have current experience in the synthetic phonics approach. I have used this from the beginning stages in year 1, and also adapted teaching with the support of practical materials to pupils in KS2.
I can provide references from parents of current pupils.

I am able to support your child through the transition into secondary school, providing practical ideas to get ready and support during the first term to enable them to remain positive about their potential as a learner. I can also help advise on issues arising from difficulties in personal organisation from moving around the school to coping with having the right things in their bag on a daily basis.

I can tutor pupils through secondary education in English and English literature. I can support those who are experiencing dyslexic issues and need some support with homework.

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual taking into account both parents and the pupils views and needs. I provide suport to catch up on missed areas of basic skills, which is delaying learning, as well as being able to support targets set by school for the pupils individual progress. Through an initial consultation I seek to find out what the needs are and, with parents and pupil, plan suitable help to reach their goals. I share objectives with parents and pupils and give regular feed back to both to reach those goals. I belive it is important for all to see progress is being made. With parents and pupils permission, I like to make contact with their teacher to work with class teacher in identifing areas of difficulty and planning appropriate support. I find that this approach give the maximum benefit for all concerned.
The greatest difference I make to my pupils is to increase their confidence which in turn enables them to be more willing to take part in whole class sessions at school. Teachers of at least 2 of my pupils have remarked on the difference in attitude of the pupils who I have tutored.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate from the University of Dundee and have an MA degree in Politics and Public Policy. Alongside my degree, I have several years' experience of tutoring and have achieved excellent results for all my students.

I aspire to get into classroom teaching, specialising in History and hope to begin my PGCE training course in September. As such, I am eager to build on my previous tutoring experience (see further details below) and gain further experience with students of all ages and abilities. I relish a challenge and really enjoy working with students one-on-one.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in summer 2012 by tutoring my friend's sister for her English Language, English Literature and History GCSEs; she went on to attain 'A' grades in all subjects. She then recommended my services to several of her classmates and, under my tutoring, three of her classmates who I was tutoring for the same subjects also went on to attain 'A' grades.

I am confident in teaching Politics at A Level, as it is what my undergraduate degree focused on and also having had experience of working in politics during the last general election, I feel I have a comprehensive knowledge of current affairs that is an asset in the classroom.

I also have three younger siblings, aged two, 13 and 17 and regularly assist the older two with their school work.

Tutoring Approach:

Having been tutoring for nearly four years now, I feel very confident in my ability to get the best out of any given student in my subjects and I know what each student is different and has different educational needs.

What I specialise in is exam technique; preparing the student for the type of question which they are likely to be asked in an examination and working closely with them to ensure that they can comfortably deal with anything that the exam throws at them; so there are no surprises on the day.

Having sat exactly the same exams myself (and being young enough to remember sitting the exams myself), I know exactly what is required of the student in order to get the very top grades, having been taught exam technique myself by my own teachers at school.

It is fair to say that my tutoring style is based, at least in part, on the style of the teachers who taught me all the way through my academic career, but particularly those who taught me at GCSE and A Level. I am now very keen to pass on the knowledge I was lucky enough to gain onto the next generation.

Personal Description:
I am a higher level TA with ten years of teaching experience. I am 28 years old and I am currently working with young people up to the age of 18 with RMBC and I also work with young people with disabilities.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in primary education for ten years. I have worked as a one to one with children with Special Educational Needs and developed my skills training to be a Higher level Teaching Assistant.
Throughout my time in Primary education, I have worked effectively with teams in Key Stage one and two. Due to my extensive experience and educational background I often cover for teachers.

I have a solid understanding of the essential skills and learning outcomes and have used this knowledge to support children where necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a personalised learning approach. The activities I use are dependent on the child and the way they learn. I understand that children can learn visually, kineasthetically or can be auditory learners. Therefore I adapt my teaching and my activities to suit the learner.

Personal Description:
Qualified teacher with experience in private and state schools. Education is my passion and I will always go the extra mile to get the very best out of my students.

In my spare time, I do a LOT of volunteering.

I am very active within the UK Scouting Association and run my own Beaver scout group; assist in a Scout group and assist in an Explorer Scout group. I also manage media for the whole Wolds and Coast region and regularly have articles in the newspaper.

When I aren't scouting, you can find me volunteering with the youth group at the Spotlight Theatre or at The Hangout which is a youth group for children on Friday evenings.

Spare time is a luxury but I love volunteering and helping kids to be kids! (With lots of subliminal learning taking place unbeknownst to them!)

I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction novels. Notable authors include Robin Jarvis and Terry Pratchett.

Teaching Experience:

"Your lessons are like magic" - the moment a Year 3 child at the end of our Latin lesson said this is a moment etched in time firmly within my mind. Knowing that I was and continue to have a positive impact on someone's life and education is mind-blowing and it is from this where I gain true satisfaction from teaching and the desire to keep going; to keep helping and to keep being that rolemodel for future generations of children.

I have had teaching experience in the state sector as well as the private sector. Primarily, my teaching has been focused in the Early Years. I have also taught in Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and a little bit of Key Stage 3. I am quite fluent in all Primary subjects with a specialism in English; Phonics and Latin which I have taught to Year , Year 7 and Year 9.

Tutoring Approach:

I like my lessons to be FUN.

I know if my lessons truly engage the learner, I know I am going to succeed even before the lesson has started.

I like to take time to really get to know my students to encourage deeper learning. I like to challenge; motivate; inspire and really go for gold. My expectations are high and I expect the very best.

Personal Description:
I read English at Cambridge and graduated with honours in 2012. My specialist subject is English and I also teach History and Philosophy and Ethics as well as having experience of teaching KS3/4 Maths.

Studying English at Cambridge means that I have an excellent understanding of my specialist subject. I have a comprehensive knowledge of literature from medieval to present day - I love literature, art, and the humanities and enjoy working with tutees across different age groups to engage and inspire them in these fields. I have a good knowledge of the current curriculum and previous successful tutoring experience.

Further, I have a comprehensive knowledge of the admissions process and have experience of helping with Personal Statements, University Applications and Interview Technique.

Teaching Experience:

My experience and testimonials are as follows:

-GCSE English Literature: 20 hours of tuition. Practised analysing poetry, studied set texts (including Shakespeare), helped with essay writing technique and general spelling practise. Student was predicted a D grade and achieved an A grade. Has gone on to apply to Oxford. "Clarissa got an A - she can't believe it and she definitely couldn't have done it without you - thank you so much! I have recommended you to a number of our friends and families " (Parent of Pupil)

-GCSE English Literature: 10 hours of tuition. Studied Poetry in advance of examination (Carol Anne Duffy, Simon Armitage, poems from other cultures). Advised on revision techniques and exam techniques. Student went from B grade to A grade. "You gave me the keys to unlock so much more in poems that I've never seen before." (Pupil)

-A Level English Literature: 6 hours of tuition. General analytical techniques for unseen texts, helped with understanding of set texts and devised revision plan with students aims in mind. Confidence with unseen texts improved dramatically, student achieved A grade for this module.

-GCSE Mathematics: 6 hours of tuition. Targeted revision in the lead up to a re-take. Student achieved target (improved from C to B) "Holly's confidence has improved so much! She was at a real dead end and now she's on track and enjoying it again." (Parent of pupil)

-Seminar with a group of aspiring Oxbridge Candidates: 2 hours. Gave comprehensive advice on interview techniques for University entrance and helped with personal statements.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a determined, confident and flexible tutor. I am always ready to tailor my lessons to individual students' needs in order to achieve excellent results. My creative approach and enthusiasm for learning means that lessons are accessible and interesting. Not only do I aim to achieve better results, but I also seek to improve students all-round enjoyment of and confidence with their subject by introducing them to other texts or subjects that may cultivate their interest.

I have outstanding interpersonal skills and am extremely approachable, as a result my students are always encouraged to ask questions if they don't understand. I motivate my students by planning lessons effectively and implementing clear objectives, ensuring that they leave each lesson with a deeper understanding than when they came.

In the last 20 years I have taught a range of courses covering English for language students, English for Special Purposes (ESP) in Engineering and Economics, Applied Stylistics, English for Academic Purposes, Russian and Theoretical Phonetics. I am highly professional in developing teaching materials and planning lessons. My freelance teaching experience is over 5000 hours of face-to-face lessons from beginners to advanced level, including training for international exams.

Tutoring Approach:

In my lessons, I prefer student-centred approach combining different teaching techniques depending on level and material. Every lesson is tailored to a student's needs, level and pace. Language is a mode of communication, which is why I prioritise communicative method in teaching vocabulary and grammar. I always provide feedback to my students using positive reinforcement techniques to motivate, encourage and built up confidence.

Personal Description:
With 8 years experience in tutoring, I have a strong background in media, business, journalism, and marketing and have extensive teaching experience in reading and writing and study skills, particularly for high school students and E.S.L. students. I graduated from the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada), with a BA in English Literature and went on to pursue a Master's in Communications/Publishing at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) a few years later, after a number of years working in marketing and communications.

I am an outgoing, warm, and mature professional who recently moved to London from Canada to pursue more opportunities in marketing and communications. I work as a web editor/online marketer and have a list of personal clients I do copywriting and SEO for.

I have a profound appreciation for education and effective teaching practices. I have always had a passion for paying forward through teaching, with the same dedication and passion my own teachers and tutors showed me during my early childhood years in Canada, which eventually inspired me to pursue English, communications and media studies in my own career.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 8 years of teaching experience in a variety of formats: 6 years in private tutoring (E.S.L., social sciences, English) as well as extensive experience teaching at tertiary level. I also have experience developing and teaching custom content and curriculum for continuing studies/professional development courses through Simon Fraser University (in advertising, social media, online, content strategy) and have also been an invited guest lecturer for business analytics/marketing courses at the MBA and undergraduate commerce levels at the University of British Columbia. I also have 2 years experience working as a graduate assistant (during my master's), where I taught class-sizes of 30-80 undergraduate students graphic design tutorials and the business of publishing).

I am also skilled at working cross-culturally, having been employed as a Cultural Assistant working in a Vancouver-based immersive language exchange program with high school students from Japan (MYK Enterprises).

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience, I have learned to adapt my teaching approach based on the learning style of each student as determined by his or her age/level of maturity, ability, interest, and willingness to learn. I like to make learning fun while also encouraging goal-setting to ensure that the student is empowered in their personal development by checking in with them to see how they feel things are progressing and what they would like to spend more time on.
