Personal Description:
"Thank you very much for the great work you did with my daughter Sophie. She progressed from a 'C' grade to an 'A' grade in the space of 6 months and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends." - Billy, Bangor

As an experienced private tutor with a 100% pass rate, I offer highly effective, tailored lessons to a wide-range of students with various ability, learning types, and academic stages.

I have a passion for learning and an appreciation for all the forms this can take. My approach is tailored to each student's own learning style and my methods aim to both support and engage them to continue learning in their own way.

Teaching Experience:

"The learning exercises were always set around my interest areas, making tuition both fun and effective.
Following my sessions with Andrew, I have developed a more concise way of communicating. My writing now has more flow, which helps me say what I need to say."
Neil , Newtownabbey

Professional certified Life Coach and successful university graduate (1st class hons) with additional masters research degree. Taught at Secondary level and now several successful years tutoring especially English and Maths for most ages and stages, and passionate about encouraging the potential I see in each of my students.

Also a regular public speaker leading seminars on themes ranging from stress-management and communication skills, to enhancing personal confidence and self fulfilment.

Tutoring Approach:

"Andrew was very professional in his approach to tutoring. My daughter gained confidence in her ability to understand her subject and to recall information using association techniques which proved very useful in her examinations."
Grainne, Randalstown

Combining motivational coaching techniques, I offer a fully engaging and personalised education. While encouraging the student to adopt high yet achievable targets for their own eduction, I am also sensitive to the level of each student and what he or she is ready to adopt.

This coaching-based approach I take has proven highly successful for my students, as my many positive references show. I approach each student and the sessions with an open-minded attitude of what I need to learn in order to be of support. I have many areas of interest outside of education, and pride myself in my ability to engage my students at their level and within their current areas of interest. My reward is seeing students succeed in their studies as well as developing their own personal skills and confidence.

AREAS COVERED / WHAT TO EXPECT

I help primary, secondary, university/college and mature students with reading, spelling, comprehension and every area of Maths up to GCSE. Alongside the specific subjects I tutor in, I can incorporate motivational coaching on exam and essay skills. This will ensure maximum value for your investment of time, effort and money

For English or Maths the first lesson will consist of a complimentary educational assessment (usually 30 minutes) to help identify key areas for improvement . All results shared with the parent/guardian. Based on this initial assessment, a 100% individual programme of learning is tailored for your child.

Upon request I am also able to provide emotional literacy around life skills such as: motivation, communication, self belief and concentration.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for tutoring Philip this year; he adapted well with you as his new tutor and enjoyed your approach to teaching.
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a tutor. I found him to be polite, courteous, reliable, and accommodating."
- Doreen, Ballyclare

Personal Description:
I am a mature professional, originally from Yorkshire. I hold a current enhanced CRB check and have spent most of my life working with children and young people. Most of my work has involved teaching pupils with special educational needs. At present I work part-time as a teacher in a hospital school with students 5-19yrs. I am highly qualified in teaching. In addition to a Bachelor of Education degree with honours, I hold an MA in the Psychology of Education, and diplomas in the teaching of reading (literacy and literature) and in Counselling. I also have a certificate in TEFL My work with children has not been restricted to teaching - I have worked as a Youth and Community worker, as a Counsellor and as a Child Protection Officer. My hobbies include drama, dance and choral singing.

Teaching Experience:

I trained as a teacher of infants but I have worked as a teacher of all ages and abilities. The majority of my teaching has involved pupils who experience a variety of special educational needs - social, emotional and behaviour difficulties, moderate learning difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, dyslexia, medical and mental health difficulties. I have also taught in secure accommodation. My teaching is effective - my work as a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator in a large primary school in South London received a very good Ofsted report because the pupils with special educational needs made good progress - better progress than pupils in the school who did not have special needs! I am also on the Upper Pay Scale for teachers who have proved to government that their teaching interventions make a difference to pupil attainment.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a great deal of experience as a teacher of individuals and small groups in school and many years experience of private tutoring. My success comes from teaching each person, adult or child as a unique individual. I am popular with my students because I endeavour to make learning fun whilst retaining high expectations of effort and success, being patient, firm but fair. My fee reflects my knowledge, skill and experience. I integrate my tutoring with the tutees school syllabus and approach, increasing motivation with encouragement, challenge and the introduction of new knowledge in carefully paced steps. I begin with a thorough assessment of a student's strengths and weaknesses at my base where I have assessment materials for all ages. My fee is payable for this session when clients can examine my CRB check, qualifications and we can discuss mutual availability (times) and location.

Personal Description:
I am a fully-qualified professional teacher with around 25 years of experience. I regard myself as a friendly and approachable tutor, as well as honest and conscientious, and I pride myself on being able to communicate with students of all ages, from pre-teen to pensioner.

I have recently finished teaching part-time at an independent school in Sutton. I am now fully available for tutoring English (11+, 13+, Ielts, GCSE, A-level, IB) plus Spanish and Government & Politics (GCSE, A-level, IB) in the borough of Sutton and close by. I am also prepared to consider other areas, such as Kingston, Banstead and Epsom, if travelling time is accounted for.

I am happy to report that 14 of my 15 Eleven Plus tutees passed the Selective Eligibility Test (SET) for Sutton's grammar schools in September 2014, and my GCSE and A-level tutees achieved grades from B to A*.

Teaching Experience:

I have some 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience at schools and colleges in the UK and abroad. I have taught and tutored English (including IGCSE, EFL and IELTS) in Spain, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Abu Dhabi, and also for many years in the UK of course. I have worked as a private tutor ever since I started teaching, as I realised that the existing state and private education providers could not meet the demand for high-quality intensive tuition.

I offer personal tuition in English and Verbal Reasoning for those parents whose children are undertaking preparation for the 11+ exams for the Grammar schools in Sutton and Kingston, and Common Entrance (13+) coaching for pupils preparing to enter the many independent schools in the area. My wife and I successfully tutored our own children through these exams, and we are able to do the same for yours. In addition, I give personal coaching for the independent schools' admission interviews.

I also give tuition in ESSAY WRITING and STUDY SKILLS, as my experience has taught me that many students at GCSE and A-level face real problems in these areas. By working together on students' essays, substantial improvements can be made in style, organisation, argument, presentation, and much more. This way, I can teach you how to produce more effective and mature essays, and thus help you to obtain better grades and increase your confidence in producing written work.

Tutoring Approach:

I endorse the humanist approach, and try to make my tutorials as interesting and relevant as possible. I also expect hard work from my tutees, and insist on homework being completed to a satisfactory standard. With every tutee I carry out an initial assessment of their needs and abilities, and my teaching begins from there. This approach appears to be successful, and I can provide references.

Over the past three years I have successfully tutored students for the following schools, colleges, and universities:

Schools: Sutton Grammar, Wilsons, Wallington County, Wallington High, Nonsuch, Whitgift, Trinity, Wimbledon High, Kings School, City of London, Epsom College, Ewell Castle, and several others.

Colleges: Carshalton, Merton, NESCOT, and Kingston

Universities: Manchester, Warwick, City, East Anglia, St Martins, Lincoln, Bournemouth, and several others.

Please note that my fees are very affordable, bearing in mind that I travel to your house. I now charge a flat rate of 32 per hour for every subject for those who pay for four classes in advance (i.e., 128 per month). For those who prefer to pay after each lesson, the rate is 35 per hour. 75-minute lessons are also popular, and these are offered at a discounted rate.

NB: Any classes that involve more than 6 miles travel (round trip) usually incur a small extra charge.

Personal Description:
I am British, Married with two children (Grown up) both are employed after their Master Degrees.

I was graduated from Newcastle University followed by various professional qualifications A Chartered Engineer with Fellowship. I served in the British Merchant Navy for many years. While I was working in West Africa I engaged in teaching voluntarily (in my free time) English Maths and Science, to children of all ages. This made me interested in teaching. Soon I realised that this was what I wish to do after ending my career overseas. In 1998 I ended my career overseas and decided go in to teaching. In 1999 I took up teaching as a full time private tutor which I continue up to date.
I am a registered Tutor of Fleet Tutors, which is one of the most reputed private teaching agencies in the Country and I was elected as the best Tutor of the Year. I am also a registered Tutor of Abacus Tutors In Berkshire and UK Tutors.

Teaching Experience:

All lessons are kept in line with what is taught in the school and in line with the National Curriculum. Progress of the pupil is repeatedly tested by regular home work and monthly mini tests. Parents are kept well informed through out the course of studies.
Substantial amount of revision and past paper questions are done prior to the examinations. No of mock tests are carried out to ensure that the pupil is fully prepared to achieve highest grades in the Exam. Nearly all my pupils over the years have continued with me until they entered the University of 1st choice.

Personal Description:
My first teaching job was in Kenya when I was 19, and since then I have taught English in Mexico, Brazil, Japan and England. My students have ranged from 4 to 94, and from beginners to doctors and academic researchers, focusing on conversation, business, or exams, depending on the student's needs.

I have a passion for language, whether listening to strangers on the bus or exploring grammatical structures, and my students pick up my enthusiasm and enjoyment.

I have written a book on psychology, linguistics and science, edited children's books and academic texts, and worked as a translator of both Portuguese and Japanese.

My BSc is in Life Sciences with the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, and I am interested in nearly everything, except football and cars.

Teaching Experience:

2010-present: ESL teacher, language coach for academics, and private tutor to Japanese kids.

2006-2010: Private English tutor (in MG, Brazil).

2001-2005: High School teacher and private tutor (in Kyoto, Japan)
1999-2001: Elementary and Junior High School English teacher, also special needs class (in Fukushima, Japan).

1997: Teacher for tortillas and lodging in the jungle (in Chiapas, Mexico)

1995: Volunteer school teacher of English, Science & Maths (in rural Kenya)

Tutoring Approach:

I use only English in my lessons, encouraging my students to speak as much as possible, and to correct their own or each other's errors wherever possible.

My emphasis is on fluency, natural language and confidence, so when teaching grammar or considering problems, the student can refer to concrete examples in their heads, rather than abstract formulae in textbooks.

I use a broad range of materials, techniques, and situations, setting high standards and pushing my students to work hard towards accuracy and creativity in English.

Though I am happy teaching one-to-one, I find that a group of two to four students can be more dynamic, more relaxed, and a better environment for free expression and mutual correction. If you agree, I might invite you to join a class of students at a similar level, which makes the lesson much more economical for you.

Personal Description:
I'm an extremely strong mathematician, scoring top grades through school (including scoring 300/300 in my AS Level Further Maths), and went on to a heavily maths-based degree in Civil Engineering with Management. I'm a GCSE Maths Examiner, so I know exactly what is required to get your target grade.

Aside from teaching Maths, I've had a wide range of experiences - I've helped set up an community project in my friend's village in Tanzania and have taught some of our sponsored students out there. I also work as an actor, and am filling the gaps with supply teaching and private tutoring.

I've recently moved to Watford in summer 2014, so I have lots of gaps to fill with tutoring sessions.

Teaching Experience:

* Teaching and working with young people as a volunteer or professionally since 2004.

* Qualified as a Maths teacher in 2006, and taught in numerous secondary schools, ranging from very challenging schools through to a high performing grammar school.

* Have taught the full ability range from low ability Year 7 through to A Level Further Maths.

* GCSE Maths Examiner since March 2012.

* Tutoring 9-18 year olds since April 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm keen to help pupils understand how maths works, and not simply learn a standard set of instructions to follow to reach the "right" answer.

With the new changes coming to Maths GCSE, having a good understanding is more important than ever - students simply cannot get by on rote-learning the method alone any more. Students need to be able to explain their answer clearly, and I make sure I incorporate this into my lessons.

Of course, approach will vary substantially depending on the student.

Students who are very close to their exams will need more focus on how to get the best result.

With younger students there will be more opportunity to focus on their understanding, and exploring how Maths works. I try to avoid simply teaching "How To Get The Right Answer To This Particular Type Of Exam Question", which might get them through tests in the short term, but is rather less helpful to them in the long term.

As a tutor I'd be choosing the most appropriate approach for the student.

Although I specialise in Maths, I am more than comfortable with science, and can also help students up to secondary school level in this subject. I will also do English with Maths at primary level.

GROUP DISCOUNTS:
* 5 discount per student if working in a pair.
* 10 discount per student in groups of 3 or more.

NOTE: Mostly I'd prefer to tutor from home. I'm on public transport so if you're near good transport links I can also travel to you.

Personal Description:
I am an English and Spanish Postgraduate Student with a Master's degree in Spanish and Teaching Foreign Languages. I am a Spanish native speaker but I was raised bilingually between Spain and the UK. I really enjoy teaching Spanish and English, since they are both part of my background.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Spanish and English privately for 5 years. This private tuition consisted in one-to-one or small group classes. I also taught Spanish at West Virginia University (USA) for two academic years and English at a Language School in Spain for two years. In these contexts, classes were bigger, from 5 to 25 students per class. I currently teach Spanish Language and Literature at University of London.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to adapt my teaching method to the student's preferences and learning style, but I think it is very important to promote communication in the target language as much as possible during the lesson. This makes students more confident and also facilitates language acquisition greatly. It is also essential to make the lesson as entertaining and dynamic as possible, because if the student is enjoying the lesson, they will learn more easily and quickly.

Personal Description:
I went into teaching because I love literature and I love working with young people; as a result I find teaching not only satisfying but also thoroughly enjoyable. I have worked in independent schools since 2005 and have taught both English Literature and Drama and Theatre Studies to A level standard, as well as giving private tuition and running a boarding house. I am qualified to MA level and also have a Boarding Schools Association certificate in pastoral care.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught AS and A level English Literature (OCR and AQA), GCSE English (OCR and AQA) and GCSE English Literature (OCR and AQA) as well as examining for OCR. (I can teach to any syllabus, however.) I have taught both foundation and higher tier at GCSE. I have also given private tuition to students of all ages and taught A level Drama and Theatre Studies (AQA). I believe that study and revision skills are incredibly important and always teach them alongside academic subjects.

As a Housemistress I have several years of experience of pastoral care and am empathetic and sensitive to my students as individuals.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a strong believer in working with my students' strengths while challenging them to improve areas of weakness in a supportive and friendly manner. As well as the syllabus required I also teach the study skills students need to continue their learning between lessons.

I believe that learning should be fun and that everyone has the capacity to enjoy novels, poetry and plays. I aim to help all students set themselves ambitious but realistic goals, whether that be to read aloud confidently, pass GCSE English or get an A* in A level English Literature, and then to meet those goals and go on to face new challenges with positivity and determination.

As well as offering tuition sessions of one or two hours on a regular basis, I offer intensive day and two day long courses to pupils preparing for exams. These are during half terms and school holidays and are one on one. Please enquire for further details.

Personal Description:
My name is Barney, I'm 22 years old and an undergraduate history student at King's College London. I live a diverse lifestyle; despite the fact I am diligent and aim to excel in my studies, I also fulfill my time on the sports field, within the theater and in all aspects of life to the full. For example, I am the captain of the King's College London Rugby 1st XV, a position which necessitates not only ability but also a great deal of responsibility. Furthermore, in my 1st year at King's College London I played a lead role in the university production of 'Fame' the musical. Nonetheless, academia is of vital importance to me; I'm constantly striving to learn and I love being able to teach others what I have come across. Most importantly however, I'm an affable, caring and honest person. I know how to make people laugh and I value my people skills above all else. Whilst at school, I undertook an A.C.H.E. scheme (Advice, Care, Help, Empathy), which enabled me to act as a student councilor to anyone feeling upset, worried or just needing guidance.

Teaching Experience:

Within my role as Deputy Head Boy at my secondary school (Truro School, TR1 1TH), I was required not only to fulfill supervisory but also educational roles. This meant aiding the teachers, sometimes by assisting individuals who required extra help.

In the Spring of 2012 I spent two months working among orphanages in a deprived part of Buenos Aires known as the Hidden City, with a volunteer group named L.I.F.E - (Luchemos para una Infancia Feliz y con Esperanza: We Strive for a Childhood with Happiness and Hope.) I was working with children between the ages of 5 and 12 more or less. Although they had very little educational background, it was our duty to impart what we could upon them; it required immense diligence and effort considering many of the children were unwilling to listen, let alone learn. However, this difficult but extremely rewarding opportunity provided me with teaching skills that cannot be underestimated. Namely, the ability to form a positive relationship with the child so as to ensure the best can be achieved.

Tutoring Approach:

As alluded to in the previous section, my approach to tutoring requires the formation of a positive relationship between tutor and tutored. I believe it is essential that there is rapport between both parties, in order to ensure that the tutored performs to their capability. As is nature, people are more willing to learn for those who they respect and like - precisely the opposite occurs if someone dreads tutoring. Educationally speaking, my approach is well structured, but varies greatly depending on the age. Regardless, it will always be in accordance with set examination boards and/or specific entrance exams. My exact approach is more easily demonstrated via e-mail once I know the specifics, and consequently can tailor accordingly.
