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.

Personal Description:
Iam a graduate of MSc Engineering professional. I have a real talent in passing exams, So, as a last resort, I hope some of my exam / revision tips can help someone get that extra few marks to move up a grade. I have very much interest in teaching the Maths & Science subjects and other similar subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have around 8 year's of teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very friendly and efficient for those who want to prosper in their studies. I always try to make my lessons mutually interesting, especially for my pupils. If students are not eager to study mathematics at first, I understand that this is due to frustration and lack of knowledge in the subject. I try to create warm and helping environment for pupils. I try to interest and inspire them so that they get enough knowledge and experience and eventually develop confidence and love for mathematics.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified English teacher, studying English at Queen Mary University of London (BA hons 2.1), completed my PGCE at The University of Nottingham. Recently I was awarded a Masters in Education from the University of Nottingham and currently I am teaching English at a secondary school in Camberwell, London.

I have knowledge of the iGCSE, AQA and WJES foundation and higher exam boards and am an examiner for the AQA English Literature higher paper.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked abroad teaching and in schools in the Midlands and in London up to A-Level. I have taught English as a second language privately for just over four years. I also English up to A2 (AQA exam board) and WJEC and iGCSE up to GCSE. This summer I was asked to be an AQA Examiner for English Literature higher paper.

I have a current CV and am CRB checked. I have all my GCSE, A-Level and Degree certificates available.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an easy going person but I do like to get results. I understand that people have enough homework as it is but I will ask of small tasks to make sure I keep you on track. My main approach to you help you understand something rather than to memorise how to answer an exam question; I find that if you understand a concept, learning becomes a second nature and confidence grows. I will also help with exam prep and technique along with application forms, CVs and Personal Statements. I am able to travel to location but will charge mileage. I can work from home but as I live with another person this will have to be at certain times to ensure the lesson is private.

Personal Description:
I'm an educational professional with over 20 years of teaching experience. I love teaching and learning and very much enjoy working with students.

I'm an avid reader and whilst I enjoy contemporary fiction, I have a real love of the classics and return to them again and again for both solace and inspiration.

My spare time is taken up with dancing and DJ'ing which I do on a semi-professional basis, organising classes, workshops and social dance events in the UK and continental Europe.

Teaching Experience:

I spent nine years co-owning and running a private language school in which I taught English both one-to-one and in small groups. I then continued to teach English freelance for two years, in the UK and in Italy. From 2002 to 2009, I worked on continued professional development for GPs and Primary Care team members, organising and delivering educational programmes and workshops. I currently tutor students and am also training in a new methodology to deliver fast-track intensive literacy programmes in secondary schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My main concern is that your confidence and belief in your own ability increases, so that what seemed difficult becomes easy and what seemed impossible becomes achievable. I like to work at your pace, in your preferred style and to build on your existing strengths. Of course the outcome is important, but my aim is that the process of working together will provide you with skills which you will be able to apply to all your future studies.

Personal Description:
I am a professionally trained actor. I have written for numerous publications, with stories and poems published regularly. I am confident with public speaking, since I have been performing in diverse venues for nearly 10 years. I have an MA in Acting and an MA in Theatre & Performance Studies. I have professional training in elocution, pronunciation as well as accent and dialect work.

I am a keen footballer, and believe in the importance of keeping fit and eating healthily. I also love travel, gardening, fixing computers and watching and critiquing films and theatre.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private Tutor since 2007, and am a member of a number of private tutoring companies. I have tutored in English Language, English Literature, Speech, Drama, Acting, Philosophy, Entrance Exams, and most primary subjects. I have tutored Students from all ages and abilities; including adults and teenagers, as well as younger pupils, and pupils with learning difficulties

From Aug 2009 to May 2010 I was a Learning Support Assistant, DeBeauvoir School, Hackney, London.

Main duties included ensuring that students with learning difficulties are both kept up to speed with the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Other duties include:
- To provide full time academic and pastoral support to individual learners with learning difficulties, and/or behavioural and social problems.
- To provide academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- To encourage learners to pursue further academic or vocational education.
- To provide behavioural support in class and to teaching staff at all times.

July 2009 - August 2009 I was SEN Assistant at Kentish Town CE School, London

Main duties include ensuring that students with physical and/or cognitive complications are given the extra support they require within the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Jan 2009 - June 2009 I was a Cover Supervisor, Neat Education & Select Education, Sheffield

Responsibilities are that of a Supply Teacher, being responsible for the learning and conduct of a whole class of students. Maintaining discipline and focus as well as being at all times a strong leader and role model were essential at all times.

Other duties include:
- Academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- Monitoring attendance of learners and set appropriate targets.
- Invigilating examinations and mark work.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that Tutoring is first about personal connection. Any learning can only be achieved given a certain level of trust, which must be established in order to create a solid platform from which further learning can then flourish. Younger students are most open to absorbing information and should have the chance to take academic information and guidance from a range of people. This enhances the educational experiences and broadens the horizons of a student.

Having myself struggled with poor teachers, or unwieldy subject matter, I know that, with the right teachers, such areas can come alive. More clinical approaches to tutoring further separate students from the learning process. Having experienced one-to-one tuition myself, I have seen the many positives and potential pitfalls the system can bring. These experiences galvanize me and help me in my own tutoring. I relish taking what I have learnt, and the exciting methods by which I have learnt it, and passing that on to other students.

Regardless of the level taught, it is impossible to make real progress unless the student first has engagement and interest in the subject. I see my task as tutor as a process of invigorating the material for those studying.

Personal Description:
I graduated from Loughborough University with an honours degree in Industrial Chemistry. I then went on to do three years research in Photochemistry to gain a Masters degree from Kingston University. I also have another masters degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Aston in Birmingham and a Masters in Business Administration from Kingston University. I have over 25 years of industrial experience. During my career I took a pro-active role in training and mentoring new graduates joining the firms I worked for, GEC Telecommunications Ltd and Fujitsu plc.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 14 years of teaching experience in business studies at the Open University teaching at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. I have been tutoring KS1 to KS3, GCSE and A-Level students in Science subjects and Mathematics for 3 years. I also tutor English at KS1 to KS3 and GCSE levels. At present I am tutoring KS3, GCSE and A Level students in English, Science Subjects and Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a mentoring and nurturing approach to teaching. I prepare students both at GCSE and A Levels to sit examinations by the three main examining boards in England, namely, Aqa, OCR and Edexcel. I prefer to tutor from home and only take on a very limited number of students so that I can give my full attention to their examination success. I have tutored students who have been deemed not to be high achievers by their schools, but have subsequently gone on to gaining A grades at GCSE. I am highly motivated and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to get letters from students thanking me for helping them to gain examination success. I tutor from home as I have found students perform best in this situation and I also have access to all my teaching resources as necessary to tailor each lesson to suit a particular students needs. Although I feel tutoring from my home is a good approach I am prepared to travel to a student's home but will of course need to charge travel costs.

Personal Description:
Educational background: I have a first class degree in Mathematics and Philosophy from the University of Bristol. I have A levels at grade A in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, English Literature (100%) and Philosophy, and an AS level at grade A in Physics. I have 8 GCSEs at grade A*, including the core subjects.

I am 24, personable, patient and helpful. I am happy to plan lessons, or go through particular issues that my students have trouble with. I speak English and Italian fluently (should anyone want a lesson in Italian!). I currently live in central Bristol, but have a bike and am willing to cycle within reasonable distances. I'm also happy to run tutoring sessions via Skype or in one of the public libraries.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in a nursery, have tutored for maths SATs and, whilst at University, I completed a school placement as a mathematics teaching assistant.

Tutoring Approach:

I work through the syllabus specific to the exam being studied for, as well as targeting specific problem areas raised by the student. Examples play a key role, and I try to maintain an interactive approach. I am patient and encouraging.

My approach can be led by the students and / or parents if they have a specific goal in mind.

Personal Description:
I am an Aeronautical Engineering student at the University of Southampton. I previously studied Further Maths, Physics and Spanish at A-Level, with grades A*AAB. I achieved high grades (A*-B) in my GCSEs which were in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, French, Spanish, Latin, ICT, English (Lit. and Lang.) and Religious Studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students ranging from 3 to 15 years old in subjects such as Maths, Physics and Spanish. My tutees have usually come to me with a grade requirement they can't meet and after our sessions, I am pleased to say all of them have been met.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be based on your learning style. I will prepare my own ideas and plans but they will be more along the lines of "points to cover" rather than a lesson plan. If you need my help, just send me a text or an email anytime. We will aim to set a goal together to work towards, whether it be getting a higher grade or just feeling more confident in a subject.

Personal Description:
I am a director and actor in a London based international theatre company. I studied Drama and English Literature at the University of Bristol and have a passionate interest in reading and research. I previously attended a small grammar school and understand well the strain of academic pressure. I was deputy head girl and received the school prize for English Literature. At Bristol University I graduated with the highest ranking dissertation in Drama in my year group. As well as working as a tutor I have been an assistant director at the National Youth Theatre and love discovering new ways to help young people grow in confidence.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children right through from primary school level to secondary school leavers. I was a teaching assistant at Northside School Finchley. Recent AS Level and A Level English Literature tutees have improved from C/D grades to A grades under my tuition.

11+ Entry Exams.
English Literature through to A Level.
Drama and theatre studies through to A level.
Art and design through to GCSE.
History though to GCSE.
French to intermediate level.

Tutoring Approach:

The biggest benefits of one on one tutoring lie in allowing the pupil to feel comfortable, safe and totally invested in. I am here to support the pupil and encourage them to discover their own strengths and to be surprised by their own academic potential. I guide the student towards finding an efficient and effective way of studying. I encourage them to engage their curiosity so that they can discover solutions on their own. I believe this will allow them to become more independent, thoughtful and successful students.

In my younger days, I passed the 11-plus and attended a grammar school, achieving 9 A grades at GCSE and an A grade in A-level maths.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified teacher, with 14 years' experience working in primary schools as a class teacher and Deputy Head. I have taught Key Stage 1 and 2 English and maths, with children I taught achieving outstanding results in statutory tests. I have worked in both state and private schools and have given assistance to children undertaking entrance examinations at age 11. I have a very good working knowledge of Special Educational Needs and children's potential barriers to learning, having been a SENCo for many years.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching and learning is that every child can make excellent progress and reach their full potential, given the necessary support and encouragement. I always aim to make my lessons fun and engaging and I have an excellent understanding of the difficulties and common misconceptions that children may have in a particular subject area. I have a good sense of humour and a very supportive and patient approach to tutoring.
