Personal Description:
Private Tuition has evolved into my passion and will increasingly become my sole occupation.

Because of the success rate and personal enjoyment that I obtain from private tuition, I have been able to reduce my full time post of English teaching, and I now enjoy working part time. Because of this, I am very flexible with working hours and can usually fit around the days and times that you require.

I am trust worthy, honest and passionate about my job. I know that I possess a skill in teaching English to an incredibly high standard, and I enjoy making a difference to young people's lives.

I am a family man, with a wonderful son and another on the way! Because of the pivotal part that my family play in my life, it has enhanced my understanding of just what an important job it is that I do for other families, when they look to ensure that their children have the best start to life. I therefore take this role incredibly seriously, and do everything to ensure that success is gained.

Teaching Experience:

Perhaps the most important factor that any parent should be interested in is not the experience of the teacher, but how good they are now, and how good they will be for their child. The most prominent factor that will indicate this is the rating that a teacher is given. Currently, I consistently achieve a classification of 'outstanding', which is the most sought after rating that a teacher can aim for.

I have held the post of Head of English at my current school, and I have led a team of exceptional English teachers. Having held other management positions in other schools as well, with management focus on both key Stage 3 and 4, I have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge that I can now put to good use within the sphere of personal tuition.

I am also an experienced examiner, having marked for a leading exam body for five years now. This has helped me enormously to build up a very clear understanding of what exam boards require from students.

Last year's results saw a continuation of my fine record of exam success, where my class achieved 100% A-C in their GCSE examinations. My current year 11 class are predicted to have 5 A*'s, 10 A grades and fifteen B grades. This will be the finest set of English class results in the school's history.

I have built up tremendously successful working relationship with my clients, and parents who I currently work for, and worked for, have happily created testimonials for me which I would be able to provide for your perusal upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

My largest concern for my students is to make sure that their confidence is built up by becoming pro-active and independent learners. All too often tutors 'spoon-feed' their students, leading them to a false sense of security in their skills, which therefore leads to poor performance in examinations.

Any fruitful approach to tutoring must ensure that the assessment objectives are catered for in tutoring. Every exam board and every exam has certain assessment objectives that must be met if students are to be successful. As engaging and as fun as I try to make my sessions, I am well aware of the crucial need to fundamentally ensure that these assessment objectives are covered.

My name is Tori, 33, and I am a teacher of History and English.

I have a Ba (Hons) degree in History and English Literature from the University of Liverpool. I have attained my PGCE qualification from the University of Newport and have a Postgraduate Certificate in Management Studies from the University of Glamorgan.

I also possess Level Three certificates in Numeracy and Literacy from Edexcel.

I will shortly be commencing an MPhil in Medieval History with the University of Bangor.

Teaching Experience:

I am now in my fourth year of teaching. I have taught 14-19 years A Level History and the Welsh Baccalaureate at Coleg Llandrillo Rhyl Sixth and have also taught GSCE History to mature learners at Abergele Community College.

I have experience of teaching History with the WJEC and OCR exam boards at A level and GCSE, and of English Literature and Language with WJEC at GCSE level. I am also familiar with AQA, having also taught A level Archaeology.

For OCR history I have taught modules which include the Crusades, Winston Churchill, the Tudors and World War II. For WJEC I teach Renaissance and Reformation Europe, Tudor England and Wales and 1930s Britain. I have also taught the American West and the History of Medicine for OCR GCSE history.

For WJEC English I have taught a range of texts including Miller's View From the Bridge, Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, Priestley's An Inspector Calls, Golding's Lord of the Flies, a selection of Shakespeare and poetry - pre and post 20th century.

I have experience of assessing and grading coursework at both GCSE and A Level (History and English Lit/Lang).

Tutoring Approach:

**MY FIRST MEETING WITH PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS IS ALWAYS A FREE, NO OBLIGATION MEETING SO IF YOU ARE UNSURE IF I CAN HELP PLEASE STILL GET IN TOUCH**

First and foremost, I aim to fully understand exactly what my students wish to learn and achieve. To achieve their goals I work collaboratively with my students by utilising their learning preferences in our sessions (something they do not always benefit from in a large classroom environment). I treat all my students fairly and equally and provide sessions which are inclusive, varied and inspire curiousity and a desire to learn. My sessions are never dull!

I am happy to visit students at their home or have them come to my home.

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 an enthusiastic and motivated Tutor, and a trained English Teacher with a PGCE from Strathclyde University. I have a working knowledge of the new curriculum for excellence and qualifications.

I am also a professional playwright and I have an Undergraduate in Scottish/English Literature and Language and a Postgraduate in Scottish Studies (Literature, Language, History and Theatre), both form the University of Glasgow.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring English one to one for approximately 10 years, and drama tutoring for 15. I previously ran a theatre company which itself has strong ties with education (workshops) and teacher training (using Drama as a tool to educate), and am kept up to date and involved in the curriculum and new teaching strategies; I am fully disclosed.

Tutoring Approach:

I absolutely love tutoring and am always moved by seeing the difference the support I provide makes. I have a high success rate and the majority of my pupils reach their desired achievement goal. As a testament to this, most of my pupil business is referral based.

My approach is friendly, motivating and always supportive, as well as honest. I am also achievement driven, as this is what motivates pupils. I am here to help you achieve the very best you can achieve.

I tailor my approach to each student, as the learning styles are so vastly different for pupil to pupil.

I cover the English curriculum, Lower Secondary, Standard Grade, Higher and Advanced. The lower school qualifications will be changing soon with the introduction of the new curriculum, and these will include National 4 and 5. The skills levels vary within these obviously.

Critical Essay writing - structure, analysis and evaluation, expression and vocabulary.
Personal and creative essay writing - imagery, structure, characterisation, expression.
Close Reading - Language analysis and evaluation (how techniques are used and what the effect is).
Discursive and persuasive writing, appropriate language, research skills, structure.
Exam revision - organisation and practice skills.

Personal Description:
Gabriel is currently a second-year LLB Law (Hons) at the University of Manchester.
He is a foreign student from Singapore and is ethnic Chinese.

Other than being proficient in English, he is fluent is Mandarin and Cantonese. He is also learning Spanish at the moment (intermediate DELE B1).

After completing his A Levels in 2008, he spent 22 months performing mandatory military service in Singapore before embarking on his tertiary education in law at the University of Manchester.

He counts reading and running as his past times. Gabriel has taken part in a mixture of endurance events and his most satisfying accomplishment is the completion of a 100KM Ultramarathon.

Teaching Experience:

Gabriel was a relief teacher for 3 months at Ngee Ann Primary School (Singapore).
Over there, he taught students from the age of 7 to 12.

His teaching subjects there included English, Mathematics, Mandarin, Science and Physical Education.

Gabriel studied English, Mandarin, Mathematics, Geography, History, Economics for his Cambridge University A Levels in 2008.

Tutoring Approach:

Gabriel believes in having a personable tutoring style, which would enable the tutee to feel at ease so that he or she would feel comfortable with raising any questions or requesting to repeat a point.

Interaction would be at the heart of the tuition sessions as this would allow the tutee to have the chance to speak more (English or Mandarin), which would allow him or her to have a chance to practise as well as for Gabriel to identify any possible mistakes with his or her spoken capability.

Since Gabriel is fluent in English, there would not be any communication problems during Mandarin sessions.

Personal Description:
BRIGHT GRADUATE - EXPERIENCED - QUALIFIED - FRIENDLY
I am an experienced, friendly and flexible tutor available teach English and humanities- I particularly focus on children with language difficulties. I want to share my passion for learning with children who are struggling with their schoolwork, or want help preparing for an exam.

I can come to you, or you can come to my child friendly house in Buckden. I have my own car if public transport links are an issue. Alternatively I am happy to meet in a public place.

I recently graduated with distinction from my MA in Religion & Politics at Manchester University, and I gained a first class degree in Religion & Theology.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored English, English as a foreign language, History and Religious Studies, as well as Philosophy A-Level. I am a registered tutor with Elite Home Tutors and Choice Home Tutoring.
I have passed Preparing to Teach Level 4 BTEC, and have a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is very learner-focused and inclusive. All children are different and no one-size-fits-all approach will work for everyone- I am particularly adept at assessing a child's individual learning needs. I aim to motivate the student to learn and be interested in the subject, and I frequently test their comprehension to see their progress, while providing an atmosphere where the students feel comfortable.
I am particularly good at teaching exam technique, which many students fail at.

Some recent feedback:
"James quickly identified my son's educational needs and has already helped with practice questions for his mock GCSE's. In a very short time my son has gained a better understanding of how to prepare and answer questions. He is learning the basics of English all over again, his confidence has grown and he looks forward to each session. James is patient and very knowledgeable in his subject and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others"

Personal Description:
I am a free lance tutor.

I specialise in modern languages (French, Spanish and English as a foreign language), which I teach online to all age groups.

The modern languages tuition is for business, pleasure, and exam purposes.

I also have tutoring sessions in my house in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, for those who live in the area.

I focus on Maths and English after school hours, from 4pm to 7pm., with French and Spanish as required.
On Saturdays, I tutor from 8am to 1pm.

I specialise in boosting grades at both GCSE and A level Spanish and French.

I also teach English as a foreign language. I have experience of teaching the IELTS exam. Accommodation can be provided for students who would like to experience the "immersion" approach to language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English as a foreign language in France and in the UK.
I have been a classroom teacher of French and Spanish for over twenty years. I have taught across the age and ability range all the way up to "A" level. I was Head of Modern Foreign Languages in one state secondary school for 5 years as well as being Head of Spanish in another.
I ran, in the 1990's, the French language franchise "Le Club Francais" for primary school French.
I have been the owner of a well known tutoring Franchise, which I successfully ran for 4 years. Maths and English was the primary focus.
I am qualified as a one on one maths tutor in secondary state schools. I have been seen by an OFSTED inspector in this role. The school's maths department was deemed to be "outstanding" in the subsequent report.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is that it should be fun, rigorous and focussed. Fun - yes. I like to think that I have got a good sense of humour and learning is best done in a relaxed yet purposeful atmosphere. Rigorous - yes. I know what needs to be done and I ensure that we cover the ground necessary, Focussed - yes. Whilst one on one tutoring can be a little intense at times, I maintain a focussed environment so that the tutee is fully engaged in a way appropriate to his or her particular skill sets and learning styles. What I particularly relish, whilst tutoring, are those "aha" moments...when the penny really does drop. I use a variety of tutoring techniques, including the modern technologies. To conclude - building a "rapport" is an essential part of good tutoring. This, I like to think, is my forte.

Personal Description:
I'm a young, enthusiastic individual currently reading English Literature at the University of Exeter. My qualifications reflect my interests and hobbies, but I am also keenly interested in other cultures, and enjoy travel. Next year, I will be learning Japanese as part of my degree, and hope to join the cheerleading, riding and sailing societies.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience working with younger children, having been a prefect at two different schools. With French in particular, however, I am used to helping classmates, particularly in allowing them to practise their spoken French. Presentation and communication skills were a big part of all of my A-Level subjects, and are extremely important in my degree, so I have a wealth of experience in how to make subjects interesting for anyone!

Tutoring Approach:

It's definitely cliché to say that every child learns differently, but I think that it is definitely true! Having just come out of the schooling system, what worked best is fresh in my mind. I would definitely encourage online learning and practice, as well as more creative exercises as far as possible, particularly for younger children. For more advanced qualifications, I know the importance of correctly interpreting mark schemes, as well as covering the entirety of the syllabus. I'd be happy to help you get a head start over the summer, or simply revise and consolidate what you learnt last year.

Personal Description:
I am a primary school teacher who lives in Brighton. I love living in Sussex and exploring the countryside and the amazing opportunities that there are within the county.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Primary Schools for 7 years now. I have taught years 4,5 and 6 so have an enhanced understanding of the curriculum requirements for this age as well as the expectations for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
I am still in the teaching profession and have an up to date understanding of current educational change.
I have just completed a maths specialism course at Brighton university which has really developed my understanding of misconceptions children have in mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in identifying what it is that is acting as a barrier to children's learning, each child is an individual so I therefore believe that they will require highly personalised learning experiences in order to help them make progress. So the tutoring experience your child will receive will be highly tailored to their needs.

I also feel strongly that learning should be meaningful and multi-sensory so I ensure that my teaching style allows the children to recognise the applications of their learning in the real world and is represented in as many different styles as possible to ensure that the learning is embedded and meaningful.
