Personal Description:
I am a 31 year old female professional, with a First class Honours Psychology degree and full Primary teaching status, as well as specialized experience, skills and knowledge in working with children and young adults with severe learning disabilities.
I am well-traveled and moved to Brighton in the summer of August 2008, to experience life near the sea within the UK. I have also lived in London, Australia and New Zealand.
I practice Hot Yoga and am a keen runner as well as a scuba-diver.

Teaching Experience:

I am in my eighth year as a qualified teacher and have worked within education of young people, particularly those with special needs, since I was 16.
I worked within a nursery over a 3year period, covering sickness and holiday relief, caring for children from all ages between 6months-5 years.
I have taught in all Primary year groups and currently have a Key Stage 1 and 2 class, specializing in Autism. I am up to date on many special needs provisions and have strong behaviour management skills. I am also a middle manager and the lead teacher for Literacy and Numeracy, for students ranging from age 5 to 19 years of age.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be enjoyable, interesting and applicable to real-life. Education lacking these elements will not, in my mind, endear itself to young people.
I am fair and consistent and expect high standards from all my students. I will always endeavour to cater for personal needs and to make learning individualized and therefore accessible.
I will not accept laziness but I will accept honesty - if a student finds something difficult, they know to tell me in order that I may assist them and overcome that particular hurdle.
When I am tutoring at GCSE and adult level, I also endeavour to make the sessions motivating, but ensure they are more student-lead and will scaffold the sessions but find tutees have more success when they are able to be guided rather than dictated to.

Personal Description:
I am currently a third year medical student from the University of Newcastle but I have also graduated in Human Sciences from the University of Durham back in 2007. During the holidays I live in London. I have a wealth of experience working with children and teenagers from being a Christmas grotto host at Harrods to volunteering at Great Ormond Street Hospital for over a year.

My work ethic when I was younger was not as disciplined as it is now and I am aware of the difficulties that students can face when it comes to learning new concepts and hope to help tutees overcome these barriers.

Having applied to grammar school, university and medical school I am aware of all the application processes and interviewing processes.

I am outgoing and to keep active I play hockey for my local club and my university college.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped younger family members to grasp ideas and offer new ways of learning if they were struggling. I have had job roles in the past training new employees up and feel this is a mode of teaching.

I would like to extend my higher knowledge to helping students achieve top grades in their GCSE's and A-levels

Within my current course we have peer to peer teaching which has proved to be a very effective learning tool.

Tutoring Approach:

Different individuals have different learning styles, I for one am more visual. I would try to get an understanding of how the tutee learns best, and encourage them to engage in activities that would help them. For instance, if they are visual learners then get them to draw things out.

Encouragement and patience is of great importance and listening to the needs of the individual.

My role as a tutor would be to guide and encourage the tutee to reach their educational and professional goals.

Personal Description:
I am a bubbly, outgoing person who loves teaching.
I was made redundant from my role on the Crime and Disorder Partnership where I was challenged to proactively tackle crime in the area.
I then decided to persue my career as a private tutor and teacher, having done it as a hobby for 3 years and found I have a passion for this field, this is now my sixth year of tutoring and have had lots of successes and am proud of all my tutees; past and present.
I can sometimes travel to you if required but prefer if I can tutor from my home.
I am available evenings and daytime and will allow single lessons or block bookings.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach maths in a secondary school and previously taught functional skills IT to level 1 and 2
I have 2 years experience in the Public Sector working with young people and adults tackling crime and disorder through engagement and educational projects.
I have previously tutored many children to GCSE Maths and can provide references if required

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual and relish the challenge of helping each boy or girl achieve their targets. I have an excellent rapport with children and all those I teach feel that I am very approachable, easy to talk to, kind and caring. I try to make learning fun.
I can provide one off sessions to tackle problem areas or intense revision help.

Personal Description:
I graduated from University in 2011 ,with a 2.1 in English and Creative Writing. I am currently working for a large online newspaper. I tutor in my free time as I enjoy helping others and I like to put my English degree to good use! A diary given to me as a young girl triggered my fixation with writing and my obsession with words. The teenage years were spent writing short stories, channeling emotions and energy into poetry, plays, prose. As I matured I began to visualise myself as a writer, realising there is no greater gift than to be able to write in such a way that inspires, engages or even educates a reader. I have recently had poetry published and have just started writing a book.

Teaching Experience:

My tutoring career started three years ago. I began assisting a college student with her personal statement (a highly important document needed to support her university application) the feedback I received from her family spurred me to consider helping other students with all aspects of English. I continue to tutor several other students, devising and executing a range of ideas for their coursework topics, believing in their ability and helping them obtain the grades they desire. I also offer a list of exam tips and hints (from my own experience) and usually mark work from students before our next session, providing constant feedback. My degree allows me to cover a vast range of literature and I am confident I can help, encourage and assist students with their studies. I now have helped four students go UP two grades after just a few hours teaching, I believe this progress highlights my teaching ability. Positive results such as this make private tuition thoroughly enjoyable and give me a real sense of pride that our sessions are paying off, the student is progressing and that one on one sessions really are helpful to anyone struggling with a particular subject.

During my last year at school,I was selected to assist the younger students with their essay writing and general understanding of the English language. I recently returned to my old school that I left six years ago and hosted an assembly to 200 hundred students and shared my poetry with them and taught them about the art of poetry and importance of creativity.

I have recently started tutoring a mature university student. I meet regularly with this student and assist her with essay planning, brainstorming, further reading and together we devise and execute a range of ideas in order to support her coursework and overall understanding of good grammar and well structured essay writing.

All students I have tutored in the last two years have improved by at least one grade. Three students have jumped up two grades and one student has improved by three grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a one on one relationship is highly beneficial to the student. Our sessions will be fruitful, comfortable and hopefully equally as fun as they are educational. With GCSE students I familiarise them with the texts they are studying and instill confidence and belief in them. I also set them numerous writing tasks and provide them with new tips and hints for the exams which are an invaluable source of information. I am able to relate to the students as I am young and although I am there to teach, I also believe it is important the student regards me as a friend, someone they can ask anything and not an intimidating authoritative figure.

The aim is to work on the students weaknesses during each session, tackling any problems from all angles in order for the student to progress and develop their English. The learning environment will be positive and as a tutor I consider myself to be highly patient and totally approachable. It is greatly rewarding to witness each student develop their skills and reach their full potential, thus achieving the grades desired. I use mock papers, mini progress tests and numerous other resources to assist my tutoring approach.

Before starting tuition, I request written work already completed by the student, examples of past coursework and essays are always useful to determine current skills, and provide an insight into the students current level and standard of English. I then devise a course of study, taking into account any upcoming exams/ coursework deadlines etc. I devote a minimum of one to two hours preparation time for every hour spent in tuition sessions. I always inform parents of the students progress and from the beginning I make it clear that I am available by email all through the week, for the students to email me with questions or for additional help.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old Primary PGCE student, with a range of experience working with children and young people. In particular, I have worked with children who experience barriers to learning and I enjoy aiding them to experience success in education. I am a fun but hard-working and reliable individual with a passion for working with children.

Teaching Experience:

Before embarking on my current course, I worked as a teaching assistant in both primary and post-primary settings. I provided support to children with English as an additional language and with special educational needs in both settings. I was responsible for planning, setting targets and assessment of the children I worked with. I also supervised a Homework Club, providing assistance to post-primary children in various subjects including children with special education needs and those who are gifted and talented. During this 2 year period, I tutored a number of children in the evenings on a one to one basis ranging in age from Year 1 to Year 6, and I developed very positive relationships with the families I worked with.

I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and during university placements, often took on a teaching role working with children one-to-one or in small groups; assessing and delivering therapy in a child-centred approach. I have completed my first school placement for my PGCE course; I worked in a Year 1 class in which I observed and evaluated the class teacher, then taught lessons independently.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe using a child-centred approach is key to success. I consider what might interest and motivate the child in terms of resources and materials, and work at a pace appropriate for the child. It is important for the child to experience success but also to be appropriately challenged in order to reach their potential. I embrace a fun approach when working with children and would like to provide them with a positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
I am a 3rd year Politics student at The University of York. As Politics itself is interdisciplinary, I feel I have a wealth of experience and expertise to offer any prospective students. I hold 8 GCSEs at A/A* grade, including all of the subjects I have offer to tutor, as well as A grades at A-Level in two of them.

Teaching Experience:

As part of Churchill House, School of English Language's Summer learning scheme, I have spent two residential stints in successive summers at a Derbyshire boarding school, assisting foreign students both in and out of class. I have worked with children between the age of 11 and 18.

During my sixth form years, I was a language coach for Key Stage 3 students at my school in French and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

Students should think aloud and use me as a sounding board. Essays should be spoken before they are written.
I believe in structuring arguments and tackling a problem one step at a time, something often rushed through in the exam. Quality will always outweigh quantity and the student should be reminded of this. I try to contextualize any of the points I make to a student, perhaps likening it to something they are already interested in. The student should stop thinking in terms of assessment and start to consider the application of the subject in the real world - this often leads to a greater enthusiasm. Analogies and acronyms are key to remembering important facts and figures. I do honor mark schemes and they will of course form the bedrock of my teaching, but in order to truly make the student better at the subject, I feel this is something that should be transcended. A pass is not enough. An A grade is my aim for my students.

Personal Description:
I am 45 years old, and have a young family with one child, currently in Year 6. My wife is a headteacher locally. I have taught in a number of different school systems, including Primary, Junior, Middle and Secondary schools.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 20 years, teaching from Years 2 to Year 7 covering all Primary subjects, specialising in Leading both Literacy and Maths. I also have extensive experience teaching English as a foreign language, to foreign students.
For the last 7 years I have taught in year 6 and year 5, so have a lot of SATS preparation experience, in English and Maths. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility, from class teacher to Deputy headteacher. Currently I teach a year 6 class, as Senior teacher, and part of the senior management team, in a Primary school in Redhill. One of my current role involves working with colleagues to develop their practice in the class room.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe every percieved problem in a child's learning has a solution. The important thing is that every child is an individual, and therefore learns in different ways. This requires different teaching approaches to be used, depending on the situation. Flexibility is an important skill in a teacher, being able to adapt to whatever the needs of the child are.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris , and I am a highly experienced tutor of Maths, English and 11+ entrance tuitions for selective schools. I teach Maths at all levels up to GSCE level, and English at all levels up to Key Stage 3 level.

I live in Devizes, Wiltshire.

I have been tutoring for 13 years, and have 24 written references from parents and I also have a Maths degree.

I have for much of those 13 years worked as a full-time tutor, and I use National Curriculum Resources for all my tuitions.

Teaching Experience:

During my 13 years as a tutor, I have taught students of all ages and abilities, and have literally taught 1000's of lessons- at times teaching as many as 29 hours of tuition in a week.

I have taught every type of student from those with Learning Disabilities to the Gifted & Talented.

I am constantly recommended by parents to other parents, and I have a proven track record of improving students' grades.
I also have resources and past papers , for 11+, SATS (English & Maths) and GSCE Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly person by nature , and I take this into my tuitions. I like to make my students feel at ease in the lessons , and that they have a tutor that they feel they can ask as many questions as they like.

I also believe in offering plenty of praise and encouragement to my students.

I follow the National Curriculum programme in my tutoring, to cover all aspects of the syllabus.

However, even if I have prepared a certain topic for a lesson, if the student then asks me to look over in a different topic, or wants me to help them with some school homework, then I am always flexible to do just that.

I also never move on to a new topic with a student, until I am happy that they have fully understood what I have been teaching.

My method of teaching is to teach a topic, and then set the student plenty of practice examples , to make sure they fully understand the topic.

Personal Description:
I am an 18-year-old student of Reading University, studying English Literature with French. I have achieved A*-C grades in both subjects at GCSE and A-Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have acted as a Teaching Assistant in Music and Drama. I helped Year 8 and 9 Music students to create melodies and lyrics for compositions and taught dramatic techniques to a Year 9 Drama class. I have also had experience in helping French GCSE students with their oral examinations. I have also helped with a close reading of a poem in a Year 8 English class. Some of the students I have worked with were monitored for bad behaviour, where I had no trouble in teaching them at all.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very passionate about English and French, so I'm always energetic and try to be fun when it comes to even the most tedious parts of the subject. I will aim to show your child how interesting these subjects can be through interesting activities, but I'm also able to teach in a disciplined manner; always aiming for the best.
