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:
My name is Rose and I am a 26 year old tutor based in South London specialising in English at all levels, essay writing and exam technique. I can also help with Science from 11+, and Drama and Theatre Studies. I have experience of tutoring students with dyslexia, attention deficit disorders, and other special educational needs.

I grew up in Devon and attended Colyton Grammar School, where I obtained A grades in English Literature, Theatre Studies and Biology at A-Level. In 2004 I then went on to study for a BA in English and Drama at the University of Manchester, for which I achieved a double first. Whilst at university, I was involved with the Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force, teaching children aged 13-18.

At university I also started writing and performing comedy as part of a sketch group, and have continued to perform with them for the last four years, taking shows to the Edinburgh Festival every summer. In 2010, our show featured a group of young children aged 7-12, who I taught to perform through workshops and rehearsals. Alongside my career as a performer, I have worked as a teaching assistant in a high school in inner city Manchester, where I focused on one-to-one work with students with special educational needs.

Teaching Experience:

2008-2009 - TEACHING ASSISTANT, The Albion High School, Salford

I worked as a teaching assistant with students ranging from 11-16 in this very challenging inner city school, mainly in the science department. My duties included one-to-one support for students with a range of special educational and behavioural needs and general classroom support for teachers with difficult groups of students. My background in English allowed me to specialise in tutoring students with dyslexia and other special needs to complete coursework, as well as helping them to understand and engage with science as a subject.


2005-2007 - UNDER OFFICER/ INSTRUCTOR, Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force

I worked at the GMACF summer camps supervising and teaching basic military skills to groups of cadets aged 13-18, some of whom had behavioural difficulties. I designed lesson plans and teaching methods for this unique educational opportunity that would preserve discipline whilst maintaining an effective and stimulating learning environment.


2010 - WORKSHOP LEADER, various locations

As part of a show I created in 2010, I taught several different groups of children aged 7-12 the skills needed to perform as part of a professional theatre show. As well as teaching them stagecraft and acting technique, I also encouraged confidence and enjoyment as part of the learning experience

Tutoring Approach:

I am enthusiastic and friendly in my approach, and aim to promote in my students the same enjoyment in their subjects that I experienced whilst studying.

Alongside a focus on building confidence in exam technique and coursework skills, I also place a strong emphasis on encouraging genuine enthusiasm and curiousity around the subjects I teach in order to leave students with not only the skills they need to achieve but also the desire to learn.

Personal Description:
I am a lively and enthusiastic graduate, with a first class honours in Engineering from Kingston University. I have always had a passion for teaching, as the younger generation is our future and I believe that it is very important that they are well educated. I know that private tutoring is very useful, as I myself have had it, it helps build confidence in students that don't feel that they are up to speed in school.

I am highly passionate about everything I do, this includes activities such as playing guitar and studying motors. I know that I am an able tutor when it comes to students of any ability.

Teaching Experience:

I started my career tutoring only young children on a casual basis, I now have tutored children professionally. My eldest student was 18, and my youngest was 6. I enjoy teaching children of all ages. I tutor in Maths, English and Spanish, and I am able to tutor in Film Studies too. I have studied all of these subjects myself and have gained respectable grades in them. I believe that having worked in a customer based environment for many years means that I am an easy to talk to person and I found that this is helpful in tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a graduate, and I the way in which I teach is by using practice questions and repetitively going over the necessary work, as I believe that this helps the student grasp the work. I also aim to make sure that the student can understand the work as well as answer questions, as understanding is the most important part.

The lessons would always be well structured. I would begin by going over the facts and showing examples of how things can be solved. I would then go on to give practice questions, with which I would help, and finally I would leave the student with a practice question as homework.

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.
Last year I was a personal tutor to 4 children all of whom were Year 6 and all of whom achieved Level 4 or above in their Maths SATs paper.
I have just completed a maths specialism course at Brighton university which has really developed my understanding of misconceptions children have in mathematics. I am just about about to start a Masters in Maths Education in order to continue to enhance my understanding in this area.

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.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge (Christ's College) with a BA in English Literature - where I was short-listed for the Cambridge Quarterly Prize after receiving one of the highest scoring dissertations in the year (from around 200 students). I excelled at both GCSE and A-Level English and scored full marks in my AS level examinations. At a world class university I have developed the ability to rigorously analyse language and the historical contexts that affect it: I am confident I can pass on these skills to the pupils I take on.

I have experience in tutoring children of different ages, and have a proven track record of improving student's marks before their examination. I am available to tutor in English (for Oxbridge interviews, A and AS level, GSCE, and 11-14) and History (GSCE and 11-14).

I am hugely passionate about literature of all periods and believe that sharing this excitement is essential for helping people learn effectively. I am lucky enough to have studied at first class institutes where my tutors had a genuine love for their subject and this has led me to understand its importance, and incorporate it into my teaching.

If you have any questions at all please feel free to send me an email. I am happy to tutor online, from my house, or to visit students at their home.

Teaching Experience:

I have vast experience in teaching English: I have acted as a personal tutor and also worked at a school in Uganda teaching English to classes of up to 25 pupils. As the pupils ages varied from young boys to adults I am also confident tutoring all age groups.

I also volunteered at a primary school in Highgate helping teachers supervise large classes of young children.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in having engaging yet vigorous lessons and strive at all times to try and keep the pupils interested. Likewise, experience within sport, and in a band, has taught me the value of motivation and encouragement and I strive to utilise this within my lessons.

I am extremely organised, track the pupil's work and always have lesson plans in place. As such, I will always check when I first take on a pupil what their end goal is so we can effectively work towards it from day one. Ideally, I would like to be given examples of pupil's written work so I can assess their strengths and weaknesses.

I took all essay subjects at A level and regard writing them as a major strength of my academic work. It is surprising how poorly structured and written most GCSE, and even A-Level, essays are and I will teach students the fundamentals of writing essays, including introductions, conclusions, and topic sentences, to help maximise their marks.

Personal Description:
I am a University student currently studying Psychology at Staffordshire University.
I am reliable, friendly and very enthusiastic about teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored GCSE level and below students while studying for GCSE's as well as while studying for my A-Levels informally.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that students don`t all think the same way and what method of learning might work for one student may not work for all students. I try as much as I can to cater to individuals to ensure they get the most out of my sessions.
I believe that with the right teaching and motivation, students can gain appreciation for any subject and enjoy rather than just endure the learning process.

In my spare time, I enjoy world travel and learning about new cultures. I also love swimming, chess and sketching.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 3 years of experience of both online and offline lessons.
I have taught private lessons in Spain, Portugal and online.
I also have taught at some academy schools and summer schools in the United Kingdom.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is dynamic.
I often create my own materials to suite the student. I also keep up to date with the latest learning technologies.
For example, for my Skype lessons, I use an interactive whiteboard.
My lessons are visual and exciting. I include a lot of activities and topics that relate to real life English.
At the same time, I back this up with grammar for those students who require this.

Personal Description:
I have a BA (Hons) in Classics from the University of Oxford, followed by an MA in Classics from King's College London, for which I received a Distinction. I started tutoring Classics part-time in September 2013 for Kaleido Tutors (can supply reference), then expanded to freelance work in Spring 2014, when I began tutoring English Language and Literature. Despite my academic credentials in Classics, my love and learning of English literature has remained strong since A-level (Grade A), and I am currently researching for a PhD which will cover both Classical and English literature (likely starting at King's College London, Jan 2015). My academic aspirations do not hamper my commitment to tutoring: not only do I thoroughly enjoy teaching, but it helps to ground and shape my interest in the subjects of Classics and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring Latin and Greek for a year (starting immediately after finishing my MA in Classics in Sept 2013), and English Language & Literature since Spring 2014:
- All tutees (freelance/Kaleido Tutors) experienced at least a two grade increase, with most achieving >90% in end of year exams (Summer 2014).
- One Latin tutee went from near-bottom to top of his class to top (97% end of year result).

Tutoring Approach:

The great advantage of one-to-one tutoring over classroom teaching is that I can pay full attention to the uniqueness of the tutee. Everyone is different, and I am able to match my skills to the tutee's needs, iron out any particular foibles, and thus increase the tutee's confidence in the subject. Tuition in both English and Classical subjects centres around the same skill set: attention to detail, effective lesson structure, allowing the tutee the freedom to find the correct answer, as opposed to just lecturing.

My favourite aspect of Classical and English literature is the unparalleled connection between the nuts and bolts of the languages and the grand themes they explore. I believe this relationship is key to the effective tuition of language and literature: I like to find a literary theme my tutee is interested in and tie it to the intricacies of the language - grammar does not have to be learnt in a bubble.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and have tutored children of all ages for three years, specialising in mathematics and music.

I have an A level in maths and would be happy to tutor up to this stage. With music, I can teach flute (beginners to grade VIII students) as well as music theory. I can also supervise music pratice, regardless of which instrument is being played as I have a wide knowledge of practical music and I perform regularly.

Whilst maths and music are my strengths, I'd be very happy to help with all academic and creative studies. I have experience teaching reading & writing skills, history, geography and art so I'd be very willing to help in these areas too.

Teaching Experience:

After completing my A levels in 2011 - Maths, Music and History of Art - I worked in a prep-school for 2 years as a teaching assistant & music teacher. Whilst there I tutored many children outside of school.

Since moving to Petersfield in 2013, I have been working in the sales division of a music company in Surrey and tutoring in the evenings.

I have experience teaching children aged 3-18 of varying abilities, including children with special needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that all students respond differently to the varying teaching methods so I will always adapt my teaching to make sure they get the most out of our lessons.
I will always make sure that a student has a confident grasp of a topic before moving on, and I will regulary recap on previous topics so that they can make sense of the links between them.
My aim is to get students really thinking for themselves and to get them working enthusiastically in every subject.

Personal Description:
I am really passionate about both science and teaching: during my academic career (spanning more than a decade), I have been fortunate enough to have plenty of opportunities to combine the two at a variety of levels. I come from a very large family and have been involved in work with children from a young age - from riding instructor to homework 'buddy' and in the last few years tutoring and teaching. I love the moment that you see the light of understanding come on in the person that you are working with - I got into science for these moments myself and to be honest, it's almost as rewarding to see them in someone else! It is particularly exciting when you see someone go from frustration to 'getting it'.
My experience covers all of the English exam boards and the IB.
I'm extremely patient, calm and focused. I work best with individuals or small groups of 2-3 students.

My own children were partially home-schooled so I have copious experience there!

I currently tutor in maths and science, I used to run a weekend biology group for adolescents and have taught English as a secondary language at this level
GSCE:
I currently have mostly students in maths, biology and chemistry who are all doing well. When I lived abroad (for 8 years prior to last year), I taught the equivalent of this in biology, English and maths
A-level:
My students come from various backgrounds and typically seek help with biology, chemistry and mathematics.
University level:
Range of subjects including biology, biochemistry, nutrition, aquaculture, fisheries economics, thermodynamic engineering

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient & able to come up with new and innovative ways to help my students overcome whatever problems they experience in the subjects I teach. I like to see the students put in some effort because I think the best results are achieved that way but I take a more supportive than harsh disciplinarian approach.

Personal Description:
I'm a 22 year old recent graduate of the University of Bristol, where I studied English Literature.
As well as tutoring I work as an actor and writer for theatre and television, and am the co-artistic director of my own theatre company. I am bright and friendly and approach everything with focus and humour.

Teaching Experience:

I have interned and volunteered at youth theatres in the UK and the US, and have helped several younger members of my family with their essay subjects during exam season. I also tutored some year 9s in History as part of a mentoring scheme whilst I was at school.
Outside of direct teaching, I have directed a number of short and full length plays which involved working with groups and with individuals on their performances and interpretations of the various texts. I was also Vice-President of one of Bristol's leading drama societies and part of the mentor scheme for younger English students as they began their University careers.

Tutoring Approach:

What I think is key is getting a clear overview of what an examiner is looking to see in an essay; what skills you need to display and how these can be shown clearly in the way that you write. Having an exam strategy in place gives us the breathing space to work out what you, the tutee, are interested in or can find interest in as we go along, within the subject; these are the parts of your essay which will be the most interesting to write and to read. Once we have found that we can use it as a starting point to branch out into other aspects of the subject, as a way of remembering important facts or how 'structure', for example, may not be the most exciting thing to learn about, but how it enhances and informs the more obvious and fun parts like 'character' or 'story'.
