Personal Description:
I am a University of Oxford graduate in Modern History and Politics. I worked for a year in the charity sector and then completed a joint MA in International Development and Politics. I have previously worked in educational non-profits as I am passionate about giving everyone the opportunity for a good education, and the benefits of education.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught abroad, in both India and Kenya, to a mixture of ages. I also have experience working with Japanese students as a Teaching Assistant on an Oxford summer school. These experiences have helped me learn how to explain myself concisely and clearly, to overcome not only the difficulty of the subject I was teaching, but the language barrier also.

I also have experience tutoring students who wish to apply to Oxbridge, to help them with what they will face at interview, and with their personal statements.

I have over three years and 300 hours of tutoring experience in multiple subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very interactive tutor who asks lots of questions and helps a pupil understand what is being taught. I like to provide tools which they can apply to their personal study when I'm not directly helping them.

I like to encourage lateral thinking and links with society and life, for instance, in economics I would discuss current economic news to help understand economic concepts being learnt and to apply the learning.

Personal Description:
I am 33 years old and currently live in London. I am originally from Derbyshire in the north of England. Before becoming a teacher, I worked with children aged between 2 and 12 in a variety of environments. I enjoy sport and run and coach the school Year 6 football team, I also enjoy playing tennis and swimming. I have worked with children of various ages for the last six years and have been a qualified teacher for 5 years.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified primary school teacher and currently preparing a Year 6 class for their 11+ exams in West London. I have 5 years experience in teaching during which time I have taught Year 4 (8/9 year olds), Year 5 and Year 6 (10/11 year olds, final year at primary school). Last year I underwent training for a one-to-one teaching programme, which involved working with individual children, each for an hour a week. As a full time primary school teacher, I teach all National Curriculum subjects including Maths, English and Science, I also have experience teaching the 11+ syllabus. I was also the ICT coordinator at a previous school and excel in the subject knowledge and teaching of this subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that patience, flexibility and a desire for a child to reach their potential are key to being a successful tutor. Children need to be extended and pushed to ensure that they are not just doing the minimum to succeed, but the best that they can possibly do. I believe that my approach to tutoring is a balance of patience and persistence which is very successful in getting results. I am flexible in the way that I tutor, meaning that I can use a variety of teaching styles to suit the individual child's needs. No two children are the same and therefore each child learns in a different way. I am sensitive to the individuals needs and am able to find the best way for them to reach their potential.

I AM ALSO ABLE TO TUTOR FOR THE 11+.

Personal Description:
I have enjoyed working with children in teaching and pastoral roles for more than seven years. I have completed Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in counselling training, and I am currently working towards my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling; as a result I have developed valuable listening skills. My other interests include patchwork sewing and baking. I have a calm and gentle approach, and I have a proven ability to make children feel at ease when working with me.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years experience of working in primary schools across all age-ranges. My various roles have included teaching: all subjects in whole class groups; extra basic skills support in small groups; and one-to-one phonics and spellings lessons. I have helped children to achieve excellent progress in all my roles.

In my experience as a private tutor for almost four years, I have tutored children between the ages of six and eleven, including preparation for SATs and eleven plus tests. I have excellent references which highlight children's significant progress and increased confidence since working with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor tutoring to the individual child, focusing on their strengths and preferred learning styles. I use games to reinforce concepts while making learning enjoyable. I offer rewards, such as stickers and certificates, to motivate and recognise children's achievements. All my lessons are thoroughly planned and prepared, and regular assessment informs planning for later lessons.

Targets are set at an initial meeting and are reviewed on a termly basis, when new targets may be set. A written report is given to parents and carers at the end of each term. Reductions in fees are offered if you are able to pay for a block of lessons in advance.

Personal Description:
Hi, I am a mature English Language student at the University of Central Lancashire and am mostly available at weekends for tuition up to GCSE standard English Language. I have worked in the past with young adults with learning difficulties which has taught me patience and that there are many different ways to teach a subject. I love the language and hope my enthusiasm shows in my work.

Teaching Experience:

As well as working teaching life skills to young adults with learning difficulties, I also help teach IT skills to older people as a volunteer which I hugely enjoy. I have two young grandchildren and spend a deal of time helping them with their reading, writing and spelling skills so have a wide range of experience over many age and ability ranges.

Tutoring Approach:

We all know more than we realise, and harnessing this is my main philosophy. Using real-life examples and material which interests the student, rather than standard text-books, makes learning more relevant and interesting.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed a PhD in the law school at the University of Glasgow. My research is interdisciplinary and spans three areas: criminal justice - specifically jury research; critical pedagogy - specifically Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed and interactive theatre - specifically Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed. I have a rich experience in life having previously worked for 10 years in the music business as a classical clarinet player. I have travelled extensively and have lived and worked as a teacher in Singapore. I am passionate about teaching and where possible use critical pedagogy as a means to develop the best in each student that I meet. I am a relaxed personality and I believe that where dialogue is enabled between teacher and student a critical awareness of the subject can be achieved. I believe in encouraging each student to discover his best self in his educational journey.

Teaching Experience:

I have a great deal of teaching experience which covers all age ranges and abilities. When working in Singapore I worked as a teacher of children aged 5-12 at the Julia Gabriel Speech and Drama centre as well as developing the music course at the sister pre-school, Chiltern House where I worked with younger children aged between 3 and 4 years. In Scotland I have worked as a tutor and lecturer at the University of Glasgow Law School teaching criminal law and evidence to first year LLB students; at Strathclyde University I have been the course coordinator for contract law and a tutor for criminal law, evidence and criminology, each course was for LLB and LLB hons students. I was the course coordinator for criminal law and family law at the University of the West of Scotland and I have worked as a tutor at Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow. I current;y work as a Study Skills Tutor at the University of Glasgow where I support students who may have dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHA, asbergers or any number of mental health issues, in their university studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each person has the ability to grow and become empowered through education. I have a relaxed and critical approach to tutoring. I believe that people are able to develop their own skills and potential when dialogue is established. I see my part as the tutor as key in encouraging the student to develop his best self. I have experience working with a diversity of people and I know that through developing a space where a person believes in himself a positive attitude to achieving the best results is possible. I am a very patient and versatile character and I am unafraid of adapting my style to suit the needs of the students.

Personal Description:
Having always taken academic learning seriously myself, I am keen to help others do the same. My 12 A* GCSEs led to A* A* A* A grades at A Level, and now I'm studying towards a French degree at Oxford University. I am a very capable linguist, whose knowledge has a particular depth to it, having studied French, German, Latin and English Literature at A Level. This level of expertise stems from a natural love for these subjects, and this passion is a great asset for a tutor to have.

Teaching Experience:

I have assisted Key Stage 4 lessons at Chesterton Community College, taking small groups aside to help them with grammar and speaking tasks.

Tutoring Approach:

As I teach, I am able to focus on the exact components of the subject which it is necessary to know for the examination being taken, so that everything I teach is of the utmost relevance. Having been through the same exams I will be teaching, I will make it clear exactly how to excel. This practical approach is nonetheless accompanied by the natural enthusiasm which I have for these subjects.
As an Oxford University student, I am also well-equipped to shed light on the Oxbridge application process, as well as the application process for Hills Road Sixth Form College, which is where I took my A Levels.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Hana and I am very excited at this opportunity to become a tutor.

I obtained 10 GCSEs, including an A* in French and English. I then moved on to take the Intenational Baccalaureate rather than A-levels which improved my general skills as well as subject knowledge. I achieved a level 5 in both French and English Literature (both at higher level).
I am currently studying French and Art at university.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I did a week of work experience in a primary school, working with children from the age of 4 up until the age of 11. During this placement I assisted with English and reading, art lessons and French lessons. The experience was very rewarding and I even received (handmade) presents from some of the students when I left!

Very recently I worked and lived in a château in France for 8 weeks, vastly improving my level of French during my stay. I also began to teach some French children a bit of English, but most of my time was taken up speaking French with the locals and visitors who came to stay in the château.

I have also helped my younger brother and neighbours with homework and revision several times!

Tutoring Approach:

I hope to tutor in a fun and practical manner, using art or memory techniques where I can! I can change my approach depending on the age of the person being tutored, as well as their individual needs and requirements.
I myself find that colours, pictures and interesting work sheets can aid learning and revision, thus I will try to incorporate these where I can!
