Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher with 2 children. I've been teaching for 16 years at a variety of schools within Hampshire and across the primary phase, although mainly infants.

Teaching Experience:

Personal Description:
I am a very keen and enthusiastic university graduate and love to help others learn. I specialize with children and young adults. I am a good role model as I am bubbly, show confidence and balance my career with my social life including my sports (rock climbing and snowboarding).

I have a range of experience in childcare and tuition and find different ways for my pupils to understand the materials they are learning. I find ways in which they can relate to the information which helps them retain the information for longer.
I have had several years of experience with private tutoring producing great results (please ask if you would like a reference).

Teaching Experience:

All throughout my University degree I was working part-time at Explore Learning, a Maths and English tuition center designed to help children with their national curriculum between the ages of 5 and 14. This has given me valuable experience on many different teaching techniques as well as keeping up to date with the new learning strategies that children are using in their day to day learning at school.
My one on one tutoring experience ranges from GCSE level to Primary Maths and English including other topics such as Current affairs.
On a sporting level, I gained my Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors qualification in 2009 and have continued to teach snowboarding over in Italy with Interski in my university holidays.

Quote from a reference: 'Rabia will definitely miss your cheery and happy persona. She has had other tutors but with nowhere near the enthusiasm and effort that you put in! She looks forward to you coming and has a real connection with you.'

Tutoring Approach:

I have many different approaches to learning, dependant on the age of the pupil. I like to use targets and rewards to keep motivation levels high and learning is fun by relating the subject to my tutee's everyday life. I ensure there are several reviews and assessments to enhance progression and keep on track.

Personal Description:
Not everyone can reach their potential in a class of perhaps thirty students, especially if peer pressure, noise and poor behaviour work against their best efforts; even at university nowadays, seminar groups are often crazily over-large. I began teaching as a genuine vocation, after many successful years as a marketing manager in the pharmaceutical industry. It is this background that makes me different; it has given me an approach to teaching that has changed the outlook and results of many young students similar to your own son and daughter, inspiring them with renewed confidence and enthusiasm. The large number of genuine four and five star references on this site and elsewhere are evidence of this. As well as teach, I also write for several publishers including the BBC; also I have been the "BBC Bitesize English teacher" for some years, responding to educational queries sent in to their website.

I have taught English Language and Literature (as well as Media and Film Studies) to KS3, GCSE, A-level and under-graduate level for several years; I also tutor primary (KS2) students, helping them with their KS2 and entrance exam preparation. My speciality, apart from a natural love of English Literature. is linguistics and I suppose, through my teaching materials, I have become quite well known even nationally for my work in this area.

I taught for many years at the county's leading comprehensive school, The Beauchamp College in Oadby, where year-on-year my classes achieved amongst the highest results in the school, and therefore amongst the highest in the county of Leicestershire.

As well as a teacher of English, thanks to my business background, qualifications and interests, over the years I have been able to help many students studying Sociology, Business Studies and History, right through to undergraduate level.

As a naturally shy individual despite a confident-seeming exterior, I am especially keen on building confidence in my students, and I try hard to improve public speaking skills as these are so important not just for interviews and the like, but for a general feeling of well-being and inner-confidence. Schools seem unable to help quiet or shy students and this is an area in which I think I can say I excel.

I am nationally known and respected for my teaching materials and run a very popular English GCSE and A-level revision website. My teaching materials and guides are used throughout the country and even overseas. As the BBC's "Bitesize" English teacher, I have even been on the Greg James's Radio 1 show, answering students' revision 'Tweets' and discussing with him his favourite book, To Kill a Mockingbird!

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a full time tutor and educational writer, but for many years taught at the leading school in the area, the Beauchamp College in Oadby, Leicester; whilst there I regularly achieved among the top pass rates in the school and, therefore, in the whole county. I have written educational materials for national publishers including the BBC where for several years I was the BBC Bitesize English teacher, having appeared in that role on national radio (Radio 1); many of my own teaching materials are used by teachers across the country. I run my own well-known and popular English GCSE and A-level revision website called "Englishbiz"..

Tutoring Approach:

I take a no-nonsense and straightforward approach to my teaching - one that provides excellent value for money and exam results. Lessons and homework are supported with the highest quality teaching and learning materials available. My personal approach is to treat youngsters as equals, something they tell me is rare in teaching and which boosts their self-confidence greatly.

Personal Description:
I have worked with some 800+ children and have a pass rate of 91%. I recommend that children start tuition from near the beginning of year 5 and have a 50 mins-one hour lesson per week.

I am a regular contributor on 11+ website forums giving parents the benefit of my experience/knowledge.

In 2003 I produced a guide to 11+ success and have sold over 1500 copies to date.

I have been an adviser to publisher Nelson Thornes on the contents of their VR books which include the Bond range.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 21 years experience as a private tutor preparing children for the grammar school entrance exams (11+) and 11 years as a year 5 class teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I carry out an initial assessment test which provides me with an accurate guide as to whether the child is a suitable candidate.

My aim is to familiarise my pupils with the different types of verbal reasoning questions they will encounter in the exam and teach them methods to tackle them most effectively.

As we approach the exam we concentrate on 'fine-tuning' i.e. concentrating specifically on any areas that need further attention and ensuring that the child is used to working at the required speed. Appropriate practice tests are done on a regular basis.

Personal Description:
I am a 27 year old female, with a degree in English Literature, Film and Theatre and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Professional Acting.

I have a strong theatrical background, not only in acting, but also directing and producing. I love to travel, favourite places being Sri-Lanka and Australia. I am a food enthusiast: I love trying new foods, as well as cooking for my friends and family.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored several students through their GCSEs in English Language and Literature, always ensuring that I am up to date with changes to the curriculum and marking strategies. I am used to finding different methods of teaching to suit each student's needs.

I have worked as an English teacher in a school in China. While there I worked systematically through a curriculum with my class of 35 students, as well as giving them individual help with areas of personal difficulty.This meant I had to tailor my approach in order to meet each student's needs, as the class was mixed ability. It was a challenge to make sure no student was either overwhelmed or bored, but it allowed me to develop my skills and each student managed to flourish at their own pace.

Whilst at University I tutored others in my year who needed help with the phrasing of academic essays- in particular I assisted students with dyslexia who knew what they wanted to say, but had difficulty clarifying their point in writing. This was a very fulfilling role for me, as I was able to assist people I care about fulfil their academic potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient, calm person. I like to find out what interests my students and, if possible, incorporate this into their learning so that they associate their studies with something they like, not something they dread. I would normally ask a student to complete a small task initially so that I can assess their working level, and then progress from there, working at a pace which challenges them without being overwhelming.

I truly believe that each student has the potential to excel in life through education - and I would love to play a part in helping them reach their maximum level.

Personal Description:
Hi, I am Eve. I have been tutoring for 5 years in English, Drama, History and Film.

After graduating with a First-Class Honours BA from the University of Bristol, I went on to cofound a non-profit organisation. I then completed an MA at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, receiving a Distinction.

Whether you or your child need help with an essay, an exam or an audition, I am happy to help. I offer both academic knowledge and practical expertise.

Teaching Experience:

I have:

- Over 1000 hours of tutoring experience.
- Helped students to lift their grades by up to 4 levels.
- Worked with those of all nationalities aged 2-65

Recommendation:
'Eve tutored my son in GCSE Drama, English, History and Spanish. He found her teaching to be very clear and he required a great understanding of all the subjects taught, which was reflected in his very improved grades. Eve has a natural enthusiasm for teaching and an excellent ability to communicate with people. I would give her my highest recommendation as a tutor. Eve was very keen to get the best out of her student and her encouragement yielded great results!'

Tutoring Approach:

My goal each session is to help the student appreciate the role of art and culture in the curriculum (and the world more widely) be it by reading aloud with a small child or assisting an adult learner in analysing a film. By helping the student to discover his or her innate creativity, the student begins to enjoy the subject and move towards academic success. Together, we:

- Identify grammatical errors or creative blocks.

- Deepen knowledge.

- Learn tried-and-tested study skills.

- Set achievable goals for steady improvement.

Personal Description:
A first year Oxford Double Degree History student and double academic and music scholar. I was taught music at the Royal College of Music for over a decade. I am hard working, diligent and will always put my students first.

Teaching Experience:

Experience mainly tutoring younger children, but have done small ad-hoc pro bono tutoring sessions for older children. I specialise in both English and History tutoring, and I can tutor any book or any period for you child. Maths I will be willing to tutor up to GCSE at the most, given the board, and my music and sociology tutoring information can be provided at further request.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise at being able to tutor online: I feel this means students can maintain studying in an environment they feel comfortable in. Another benefit is that I can document all tutoring sessions - part of me services mean that I will copy up transcripts of all the sessions for both you and your child - this means you do not need to worry about sessions being missed. To ensure you get the most out of my time, I offer my services in blocks of 5 or 10: this means that I can thoroughly cover subjects. For example, if you require emergency tutoring with a book, 5 sessions would enable me to efficiently cram topics, whilst 10 would enable me to go through this more thoroughly with you or your child. How I tailor your blocks of 5 or 10 can be discussed between both you, me, and your child. For documentation purposes, I believe typing during the online sessions can be maximally beneficial: both the child can see what i'm writing, whilst you as the parents can see exactly what is being discussed. However, if you would like me to use voice calling as well as video calling, this is no problem either.

Personal Description:
As an energetic, polite, and highly motivated individual I absolutely commit to anything that I participate in: from playing musical instruments, to touch rugby to teaching! I take my commitments very seriously and I am always dedicated to my work, throwing my considerable personality to inspire all those around me to do better.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a 4th Year student at the University of Stirling studying Secondary Education with English and will graduate with a BA Hons in August 2016. As a student on the course I have first hand experience of teaching to numbers between 12 and 30 pupils ranging from the ages of 10 up to 17, teaching all the Scottish National qualifications and the 'new Higher'. This has happened both within the university and out on placements within schools in my area; therefore I have an acute understanding of the difference between English studies and English teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very professional yet enthusiastic individual who takes an immense pride in his work: being pro-active and flexible to meet the individual requirements of pupils / clients is something that I take very seriously. Positivity is also a very important aspect that I bring to my teaching as I believe that a positive attitude fosters both positive results and a positive work ethic for my pupils.

-Topics taught are personalised to the individual students strengths and weaknesses as well as individual progress rate.

-Students motivation and confidence is another factor which is worked on continuously.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!
My name is Tanguy, I come from Southern France and live in London, where I write my PhD thesis (English). I am deeply committed to teaching and learning. I enjoy facing up to new challenges. I am a hard-working person, with a zest of originality to make it interesting!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked (and mostly taught) in many different countries so far, which has been very profitable for my teaching practice.
I began as a French language assistant in 2006-2007 in a secondary school in South London.
Two years later, during my MA in Montpellier, I became a tutor at the department of English of my home university.
I went to the US in late 2009 to be a French language instructor at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I taught a class of 20 beginners (aged 18 to 25) on a daily basis, which was extremely motivating. A few months later, I crossed the border and offered one-to-one tuition in Montreal, Canada.
In London since 2010, I achieved the status of Associate Practitioner delivered by the Higher Education Academy in February 2014. This qualification is in line with the UKPSF standards for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.
I am now teaching at Goldsmiths on the seminar 'Approaches to Text' (Department of English).

Tutoring Approach:

The teaching I offer is tailored to your specific needs. I try to relate to your own interest to facilitate the learning process. My teaching method is fundamentally active: we will work towards the goal that you will have determined beforehand through a constant engagement with the language on your part. Lat but not least, I try to make my teaching fun whenever I can!

Personal Description:
I am passionate about teaching English and love helping those who struggle just as much as stretching those who find it easier. I have 17 year teaching experience and in that time, have taught children up to the age of 13; helping older children prepare for 13+ Public School Entrance exams as well as teaching younger children to master phonics, basic reading skills and spelling. I am an experienced SATs marker enabling me to help children to prepare for these exams. I have worked closely with learning support departments in order to support and extend those children with difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. I have achieved part one of a Diploma in Teaching Children with Specific Learning Difficulties. I also have a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language which means I have an in depth knowledge of English grammar as well as an understanding of how teenagers and adults learn.

I am an avid reader and writer but a mum to a reluctant reader so I understand how difficult it can be to get children to read. I do, however, believe that there is something for everyone.

Additionally, I can teach French and German. I have taught them both to GCSE level and studied both languages to degree level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 17 years and was most recently a teacher of years 5 to 8 English and French at a well-respected private school for children aged 5 - 18. Prior to that I taught at an independent prep school where I was a class teacher as well as a member of the Senior Management Team and Head of Girls' Games. I have an excellent understanding of all aspects of child development and the need to make learning meaningful and fun. I am passionate about reading as well as all types of writing and am a member of the National Handwriting Association. I am also able to include IT in the classroom when necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends entirely on the needs of the child. After an initial consultation, I would be able to offer support with reading and comprehension and/or writing (whether it be handwriting or speed of writing - or both). It might be a case of helping your child to understand English grammar as well as teaching them techniques to enable them to include it effectively in their own writing. If it is a case of preparing for forthcoming exams, then this can be done by using past papers as well as my own materials devised after extensive experience of helping children prepare for all types of exams. You may just want some extra support for your child over the summer and prior to the start of a busy new term. Whatever it is, it will be done with empathy and enthusiasm.

Personal Description:
I am a highly achieving and passionate student from a local Grammar School, studying for A-Levels in French, Spanish, English Literature and Geography, with a view of reading Modern Languages at Oxford. I have a strong academic background with a high number of A* grades at GCSE as well as being a passionate linguist who enjoys helping others with these often challenging subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught and tutored small to large groups of students in the above subjects at a successful local Grammar School for the past few years and continue to do so, I have also provided one-on-one tuition for struggling students at GCSE standard and below.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring with a view to helping the student to enjoy the subject, with the belief that this will aid their improved performance. Nonetheless, I always encourage students to appreciate that a certain level of commitment and effort will always have the best effect when trying to improve in a subject.
