Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level as well as Politics at A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Subjects
  • Politics
  • A-Level or Highers (35 p.h.)
  • History
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (35 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am British, Married with two children (Grown up) both are employed after their Master Degrees.

I was graduated from Newcastle University followed by various professional qualifications A Chartered Engineer with Fellowship. I served in the British Merchant Navy for many years. While I was working in West Africa I engaged in teaching voluntarily (in my free time) English Maths and Science, to children of all ages. This made me interested in teaching. Soon I realised that this was what I wish to do after ending my career overseas. In 1998 I ended my career overseas and decided go in to teaching. In 1999 I took up teaching as a full time private tutor which I continue up to date.
I am a registered Tutor of Fleet Tutors, which is one of the most reputed private teaching agencies in the Country and I was elected as the best Tutor of the Year. I am also a registered Tutor of Abacus Tutors In Berkshire and UK Tutors.

Teaching Experience:

Full time Private Tutor (mainly one to one but occasionally group) from 1999 up to date. I set very high standards and my students have always been achieving very high grades (A and A*) in all the subjects been taught

Tutoring Approach:

Initial assessment followed by structured and tailor made teaching programme to suit and meet individual needs. All lessons are kept in line with what is taught in the school and in line with the National Curriculum. Progress of the pupil is repeatedly tested by regular home work and monthly mini tests. Parents are kept well informed through out the course of studies.
Substantial amount of revision and past paper questions are done prior to the examinations. No of mock tests are carried out to ensure that the pupil is fully prepared to achieve highest grades in the Exam. Nearly all my pupils over the years have continued with me until they entered the University of 1st choice. I have quite often prepared the students successfully for entrance exams for top schools such as Eton, Harrow, Cheltenham, Wickham Abbey Wellington, Kendrick etc ......

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher with 8 years teaching experience. I have a 14 year old step-daughter with AD/HD who is also on the Autistic spectrum. I also have a 5 year old daughter who is very able and a 2 year old daughter. I have been married for 8 years. but with my husband for 15 years.

I am looking to offer my services as a private home tutor to help struggling students with or without additional needs.

I can get references for previous tutoring jobs, upon request, as prior to having my 2nd daughter I had been tutoring for 3 families, preparing their children for their SATs and helping with homework. I am currently tutoring twins in Year 3, helping them with English and Maths skills.

I am prepared to come to your child's home but also willing to tutor from my own home if required earlier than 6pm.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 8 years after working as a Special Needs Assistant and then completing my Primary PGCE at Kingston University.

I have spent my 8 years teaching in Special Needs schools working with students with Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autism, AD/HD, Downs Syndrome, Aspergers, Cerebral Palsy, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and also visual impairments, as well as those with difficult home lives.

I have training in a successful Phonics scheme called Read, Write, Inc. Whereby students learn to read through intense synthetic phonics teaching which involves constant repetition and reinforcement enabling the student to learn effectively and quickly, gaining confidence in their ability. This would need some input from parents in order to be as successful as possible.

I absolutely love my job and now feel that it is time to offer my expertise, either in the evening or at weekends, to other children who find learning difficult and require a little extra help and support. I also feel that by my helping your son/daughter it will help you to cope with their needs in other areas without you having to worry about them struggling at school.

Tutoring Approach:

Wherever possible I would like to follow the schemes your child uses at their current school in order to not confuse them any further, but if this is not possible I will try to adapt my teaching style to accommodate ways in which they learn best. When it comes to teaching, students need to experience a variety of methods in order to find one that suits them. If this has not been established when I begin working with them it is something that I would work on quickly in order for the student to be able to start learning quickly and effectively.

Subjects
  • Special Needs
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)
  • Reading & Writing skills

Personal Description:
I am a well-educated graduate who has previously tutored Flute, Mathematics and Science.

I have also previously supported disabled students with their studies - so please do not hesitate to contact me if this is causing you worry.

Due to the need to get to know a student and their requirements, I do not charge for the first hour of my time - although this is for 'fact-finding' and not a tuition session as such.

If this is your first time hiring a private tutor and you would like more information, or have any other questions please send me a message through this service and I will happily respond by email, usually within 2-3 days.

Teaching Experience:

I have over a decade's experience teaching all subjects at primary level in addition to Mathematics and Sciences to A-Level.

I also have previous experience teaching mathematics and science from early years (5yrs old) to Secondary age and beyond including tutoring for both GCSE and A-Level examinations.

I am also first-aid trained by Wallace Cameron (First Aid at Work) and have a post-graduate leadership qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

I work under the assumption that all children and adults have the ability to succeed, and have high expectations of them. Having said this I am fully aware that a great many people have difficulty with some subjects, especially mathematics. I aim to remove the fear or maths, and instill understanding rather than teaching by rote. If you are unsure as to what your child/children would benefit from learning I am quite happy to assess them against the National Curriculum and dependent on the total number of hours you wish to book, I do not normally charge for this.

Please note that although parents are always quite welcome to stay for any session, this is not always productive as it can make some children nervous - although for flute tuition it is recommended that a parent/guardian stay for the first lesson, as this lesson includes teaching a child how to stand with the instrument, if the parent is aware of the correct position they can help their child at home and greatly speed learning. If a lesson is occurring at my home I do of course have tea/coffee facilities and somewhere you can wait for your children!

I am willing to travel to your home for lessons if this is easier for you, although an extra charge may apply to cover my time and expense although we will of course agree this prior to undertaking the session.

An hour long session to discuss your needs and talk about what you want to get out of private tutoring is offered free of charge to new students.

"I would highly recommend Melanie. My daughter was really struggling with preparing for the transfer test and Melanie really boosted her confidence and gave her all the necessary tools to succeed."

"I would most definitely recommend Melanie as a tutor. She gave great advice on transfer test preparation and recommended valuable English & Maths materials. My daughter really enjoyed attending weekly sessions with Melanie. She is now an avid reader and has recently been graded a reading level well above her age group."

"Melanie provided excellent tutoring and advice for my son during his preparation for the Transfer exams. Her ability to engage and challenge him led in no small way to his ultimate success in gaining a result that allowed him to choose the school he wished to go to. I have no reservation in recommending Melanie and appreciate what she did for my son and the others whom she tutored."

"My son really enjoyed his time with Melanie. He progressed so much more than just being taught in school alone."

I look forward to welcoming you into my classes!

Personal Description:
My name is Kierri and I teach at various locations in and around the North West. I set myself high standards to ensure the quality of my teaching is no less than excellent. I believe that self-confidence is an important gift to instil into developing minds and is often the key to success. My background in Psychology, enables me to recognise what kind of learner a student is and adapt my teaching style. Flexibility is a key element of tutoring, as changes are inevitable when dealing with young minds. All teaching is inline with the National Curriculum and SMART targets are key.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored hundreds of students, from as young as 6/7 years to 30+, including entire classrooms, small groups and individuals. I now specialise in one-to-one tuition in students own homes, as a comfortable, familiar environment is important to facilitate learning. Most students begin with me at very low grades and go on to achieve A* grades - which is of course, wonderful to witness. I also accommodate students with special needs, be that learning difficulties or physical disabilities and also study skills/exam technique.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailor made to the student's individual requirements, whilst maintaining standards and keeping expectations in mind. It is usually an informal and friendly environment. The National Curriculum is closely followed and progress is monitored and recorded. I believe the student should have a role in his/her education and they are seen as investors in their own education.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced part time tutor in the Lewisham/Southwark area.

I have tutored English for over 5 years at a range of different levels.

In my full time job I am Head of Events at a think tank in Westminster and therefore I am only available on weekends or evenings.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored English for over 5 years. I specialise in primary age students or students who do not have English as a mother tongue.

I worked as a teaching assistant in primary school in Deptford, South East London for one year.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a bespoke tutoring experience. I believe that each student has different needs and therefore we should tailor the learning experience to them.

I try and make learning fun by using games and interactive exercises.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Rebecca. I specialise in English language/linguistics and I am keen to tutor/help anyone with their English language skills whether your are a non-native speaker looking to improve your spoken and/or written English, or a native speaker of English looking for help on your national 5 or advanced highers. I have a GCSE and an A-level in English Language in addition to a degree in Linguistics, a Master's in Bilingualism and one and a half year's experience doing a PhD in Linguistics. I am also qualified to A-level in psychology and can teach psychology for GCSE and Advanced Highers. I am also able to tutor those who would like help with data handling in Microsoft Excel and data analysis/statistics using SPSS.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring both one-to-one individual sessions and tutoring groups of 20. I have worked with children from the age of 5 and have tutored adults in their 30's. The children I have worked with comprised children with typical language development and those with atypical language development (specific language impairment, autism and dyslexia). Adults with whom I work are a mixture of native and non-native speakers of English.

I am currently employed by the University of Edinburgh to tutor the tutorials for one of their modules in Linguistics. In addition to my work at the University of Edinburgh I also engage in regular private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important to tailor learning sessions to the needs and abilities of the student. Our current school system is still based on the traditions established during the Victorian times which maintains that groups (classes) of children will receive the same teaching, ignoring the abilities and personal needs of the individual children who make up that class. This is what is known as a 'one glove fits all' approach. I believe in catering teaching to the student's needs and abilities and to engage students at all levels. I also do not believe that teaching should be a static process, whereby students just listen to a teacher talking. It is important for students to think for themselves, to use the skills they have learnt in order to solve new challenges. It is important to keep students engaged. Learning should be fun and we can make this possible by presenting students with interactive exercises that are both fun and challenging. A successful tutoring session should leave a student feeling excited, reflective and overall hungry to learn more.

Personal Description:
Do you want the best for yourself or your child? Are you confused by today's education system? Has something gone wrong in your child's education? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", then you have come to the right place!

Today's world offers countless wonders and opportunities. The role of education is to help each of us to explore and make the best of these. As a graduate of the University of Oxford, as well as a qualified teacher, I am uniquely well-placed to help students make the most of a precious time in their life. I know how to strike the delicate balance between the knowledge that inspires us and those all important exam results, on which so much rests. Offering a bespoke service, I tailor my tuition to my student's needs, guiding them through their own progress in the subject and the examination system.

My excellent academic background allows me to develop candidates in the skills and knowledge required for success in education, especially in written communication. As a linguist, I excel in English, French, Spanish and Italian, which I am pleased to offer to A-level. I can also instruct in academic English to degree level. My own debating, conversation and writing were honed in some of the finest institutions, not least the University of Durham, the Royal English College, Valladolid, and, most recently, the University of Oxford. In particular, I sub-specialise in helping boys (often in Years 10 and 11) to develop their formal written and spoken English, so that their intelligence, which often shines through in Maths and the Sciences, can also be reflected in the arts and humanities.

My students also find my approach focused, but also light-hearted and enjoyable. I pride myself on ensuring lessons are efficient, informative and focused not simply on the hour, but also on the "take-away", so that students will develop and progress.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years' experience of teaching and tutoring at every level, from primary school through to undergraduate (I have led medieval philosophy seminars at St. Mary's College, Oscott). I have also worked with special needs children and I have often worked with children who have English as an additional language.

I possess Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring begins with the student's general academic background and his/her own academic goals. My planning and lessons subsequently focus on the particular elements (e.g. vocabulary, grammar, exam technique, etc.) required to attain the final goal. Feedback, both positive and constructive, is given throughout (to parents, where applicable). Courses in formal English focus on the reading, grammar, style and writing necessary for good prose and speech. This takes its lead from the format for Oxford tutorials, where students must research, compose and defend their views with an established academic. This is punctuated by more light-hearted moments and good humour. Tutees are also supplied with "homework" where required.
