Personal Description:
I graduated as a mature student with The Open University and hold a BSc (Hons) in Life Sciences in 2008, so I have an understanding of the pressures of modern learning requirements.

I am easy-going and have an interest in teaching basic skills and maths to primary ages as well as science up to GCSE level.

I am a young 60 with a 6 year old daughter who benefits from my teaching and encouragement. It is through her that I have gained a good understanding of primary years education.

I continue to further my own education through the Open University and I am presently seeking a PhD opportunity.

Teaching Experience:

I assist and support my own daughter's learning as well as gaining further experience by assisting in the classroom at a local primary school. I have extensive experience in industry using organisational and team management skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to direct the learning process in an interesting way. For primary levels, it is important to maintain interest though the use of a wide range of learning resources and also to make learning fun.

I believe in building confidence by encouragement. I structure lessons to suit individual needs, setting achievable targets and carefully directing the route to reach whatever level or qualification that is required.

I always begin with an assessment of the pupil's needs. I maintain regular discussion with parents and pupil on the direction and needs of the learning route.

The key factors in my approach to teaching are positive encouragement and a kind understanding of any difficulties.

Personal Description:
I am a committed and hard working teacher of English who has a genuine interest in the subject and enjoys the various challenges that teaching brings. In the rapidly changing world of education, I have always been keen to employ fresh approaches and teaching styles both in my planning and teaching in order to develop my teaching repertoire and cater for the varying needs and skills of the students as well as being open to teaching a range of new texts. Other people would say that I'm approachable, patient and very determined to achieve my goals.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher of English in Secondary education for over ten years now and in that time I have taught across the ability range at GCSE level in English and English Literature. I have also been Gifted and Talented Coordinator for five years and particularly enjoy the challenge of working with the most able students. I taught a GCSE top set group who achieved record A/A* results in English. A student in this same group achieved full marks in their coursework. I feel that this testament to the fact that I work hard to make my lessons as engaging, challenging and as inspiring as possible in my planning and teaching so that the students are motivated to achieve their potential. Finally, I have attended all learning and teaching courses in my current institution and have planned and delivered an inset course for the whole school on teaching Gifted and Talented students. I am currently teaching at The Becket school and I tutored two students last year - both students achieved their target grades.

Tutoring Approach:

In my practice I would say that I'm very much student focused in that I'm responsive to the individual needs of the students and encourage students to take responsibility for their learning rather than adopting a prescriptive approach to teaching in which the student is simply a receiver of knowledge and information. In the past I have found that this approach motivates students to become more active learners because the onus is on them to become more independent, critical and reflective learners. All of which are fundamental attributes of the highest attaining students.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Colchester most of my life, and had an uncle who was a teacher; this inspiring me to become involved in education, after having worked in other occupations.
My interests include drama, photography, salsa dancing, classic cars and travel. I am also actively involved in a number of societies, including being a committee member.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2003.
I am experienced in 1 to 1 tuition, and have also worked as a part time college lecturer. I currently work as a
training manager (in work based learning in transport), as well as a tutor.
I've also been involved in verifying learning material, and have worked with LAC/SEN students.
I aspire to eventually become a qualified (QTS) teacher.
I am a member of the Institute for Learning, and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to input their own ideas and opinions into tutorials, as I feel this can help their learning process, over merely having a tutor "talking", and them "listening".
Basically, my approach to tutoring is like a "two way street", with good communication and interaction between
both parties, which in turn can make the learning experience more fulfilling for the student.
I set homework for students, (where applicable).

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from Drama Centre London, top of my year, with an MA in European and Classical Acting (which incorporated a real focus on Chekhov and Shakespeare). Although in essence a practical course, it gave me a wealth of experience in 'unlocking' classical language and style, interrogating character and thematic devices. This built on my BA degree in Theatre, Performance Studies and Literature from Warwick University where I graduated with a 1st.

I specialise in deconstructing all forms of literature and thrive in finding ways to get my students to actively engage with the text. I have taken part and personally facilitated workshops on Shakespeare at spaces including: The Globe, universities in Japan, Stratford Circus and Warwick University, and this has given me a wealth of experience and tools to access classical text. I am incredibly passionate about making text accessible and figuring out what works for the individual student.

I have been an experienced tutor of Drama and English literature since my time studying at Warwick University, and more recently worked in Russia tutoring a 12-year-old girl for Public School Entrance Exams in England (which she successfully gained entry for). I also run workshops and one-to-one session on audition, technique for students preparing for drama school auditions.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Experience
Private tutoring:
Two years' experience of private tutoring at A Level/GCSE in English Literature; Drama (performance and text work); English as a foreign language;

Additional Experience
Different Every Night: Mike Davis Workshop at The Globe (2011)
Teaching Shakespeare: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre (2011)
Ecuador Volunteers: Teacher of English as a Foreign Language (2009-2010)

I first started leading workshops for children through the Warwick Arts Centre Youth Theatre, where I became a Youth Theatre Leader for the 14-16 year-old age group. For a year, I led workshops for three hours every Saturday morning in which we explored different types of storytelling, movement, and music culminating in a show we co-wrote at the end of the year. I also directed for Warwick Arts Centre 'Play in a Day', which is all in the title really! I had a large group of 4-8 year-olds and we had the day to devise a play to perform to parents in the evening: a tiring but exhilarating day! I have since gone on to lead workshops using theatre in prisons, youth groups in London and in Quito, Ecuador. This September I was so excited to return to facilitating workshops in 'Circus Skills' at Stratford Circus.

Tutoring Approach:

I have worked with students across all ages and this has made me comfortable in adapting my approach to each student's specific requirements. Unlocking text to make it accessible and exciting is of upmost importance to the way I work especially when it comes to classical text. Feeling removed or finding themes irrelevant to modern life are challenges that I often face with students, and I am passionate about removing these blocks. I also believe that an appreciation of literature, both classical and contemporary, is important and makes a difference to performance across the board: encouraging a critical approach improves analytical skills important for all subject areas, and helps in writing well-balanced, well-structured essays.

My training as an actress enables me to provide an innovative and stimulating approach to the individual student. I work hard to encourage confidence in each session, as this not only improves engagement with the subject but also helps develop a strong individual writing style. I tend to figure out what approach works best for each student over the first few sessions and structure lessons accordingly so as to maximise learning and overall enjoyment of the subject.

I am a high achiever and extremely conscientious with regards to all elements of my work. It this attention to detail and a strong work ethic I intend to impart to students, be it in structuring revision plans, planning essays or analysing text. The importance of proficiently organising work not only improves success but dramatically decreases stress levels, which is something I have found to be the biggest block for student preparing for difficult exams and auditions or school entrance exams.

Personal Description:
I am a registered Speech and Language Therapist and have been practising since 2011. I also hold a BA in Linguistics and a TESOL/TEFL Certificate to Teach English as a Second/Foreign Language.

I am a mother of a 10 week old daughter and so I love spending time with her when I can. I love music, reading, going outdoors, and exploring England.

I currently volunteer for the National Autistic Society (NAS) to help with fundraising and providing family support.

Teaching Experience:

I work with children with a variety of special needs, both pre-school and school age, including Autism, Dyspraxia, Global delay, speech/language delay and disorder, language impairment and dyslexia.

I have been doing TEFL with both children and adults, beginner to advanced since 2008.

I have been tutoring English Literature GCSE since 2012. I am familiar with WJEC, AQA and Edexcel examination boards and have achieved A* grades with my students.

My ability to equip a student for studying comes from my longstanding experience as a student myself. Therefore, I am more than qualified to support such students both virtually and face to face. I currently mentor a Speech therapy student via Skype.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is person centred, giving the student some control of what activities they do. Lessons are designed around the individual's motivators, and so time is spent identifying these. My approach is about empowering the student and helping them to recognise that literacy and communication is FUN!

I work collaboratively with parents/carers and professionals involved with the child. If I'm working with adults, I will set a block of therapy or a teaching programme with the student so that goals are individual to you and your needs.

I believe language is 24/7 and so learning a language or therapy is not just achieved through the teacher/therapist but also with every other person that you come into contact with. Therefore, it is vital to practise language when I am not there.

Personal Description:
I am a well-educated graduate who has previously tutored Flute, Mathematics and Science.

I have also previously supported disabled students with their studies - so please do not hesitate to contact me if this is causing you worry.

Due to the need to get to know a student and their requirements, I do not charge for the first hour of my time - although this is for 'fact-finding' and not a tuition session as such.

If this is your first time hiring a private tutor and you would like more information, or have any other questions please send me a message through this service and I will happily respond by email, usually within 2-3 days.

Teaching Experience:

I have over a decade's experience teaching all subjects at primary level in addition to Mathematics and Sciences to A-Level.

I also have previous experience teaching mathematics and science from early years (5yrs old) to Secondary age and beyond including tutoring for both GCSE and A-Level examinations.

I am also first-aid trained by Wallace Cameron (First Aid at Work) and have a post-graduate leadership qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

I work under the assumption that all children and adults have the ability to succeed, and have high expectations of them. Having said this I am fully aware that a great many people have difficulty with some subjects, especially mathematics. I aim to remove the fear or maths, and instill understanding rather than teaching by rote. If you are unsure as to what your child/children would benefit from learning I am quite happy to assess them against the National Curriculum and dependent on the total number of hours you wish to book, I do not normally charge for this.

Please note that although parents are always quite welcome to stay for any session, this is not always productive as it can make some children nervous - although for flute tuition it is recommended that a parent/guardian stay for the first lesson, as this lesson includes teaching a child how to stand with the instrument, if the parent is aware of the correct position they can help their child at home and greatly speed learning. If a lesson is occurring at my home I do of course have tea/coffee facilities and somewhere you can wait for your children!

I am willing to travel to your home for lessons if this is easier for you, although an extra charge may apply to cover my time and expense although we will of course agree this prior to undertaking the session.

An hour long session to discuss your needs and talk about what you want to get out of private tutoring is offered free of charge to new students.

Personal Description:
Graduate of accounts and economics, with other main subjects -- english, geography, business studies.
Very passionate about imparting education, specialize in teaching english, maths (algebra and geometry), biology, chemistry at all levels upto gcse.
Significant knowledge of teaching 11+ entrance exams which are verbal and non verbal reasoning.
Expertise in business studies projects, anthology (comparisons of literature and poems)

Parents have certified my teaching skills and most of my tutees having bagged A grades, have progressed in the most prominent universities.

I believe in going more than an extra mile to encourage children.

THEIR ACHIEVEMENT IS MY SUCCESS.

Teaching Experience:

More than 19 years teaching both the primary and secondary pupils.

Have taught in various schools, both private and state maintained, tutored privately to pupils from various multi cultural backgrounds. Worked as a Teaching Assistant in special needs schools.

A vast knowledge of 11+ entrance exams which means teaching verbal and non verbal reasoning power. Many have mastered the art of solving maths in a minute whether equations, fractions, algebra or mental maths.

English is tutored by me which includes preparing students for GCSEs exams -- which means imparting fluent writing skills, cambridge grammar, character sketch, Shakespeare's work, Literature and Anthology (comparing poems) and helping with course work.


Students have successfully mastered interview skills through me, and gained foot hold in private schools without any tensions.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is completely different : I believe all children are blessed, and as a tutor, my success lies in tapping their potential by changing their weaknesses into strengths.

This means, I am very patient, punctual, consistent and professional.

Motivation, inspiration, appreciation and constant appraisals are the key to capture the minds of children.

Children have learnt to calculate maths without the use of calculators, thereby using their brain power, solving mentally, and being faster.

Practice makes a man perfect ----- I give pupils thorough practice and past papers to solve, before sitting for the exams.
Further, I also teach them how to attempt exam questions, how to check their maths answers and succeed with confidence.

I also mark their printed text books used in schools, making lessons easier to understand, highlighting questions and answers, give reasons, fill in the gaps, true or false etc. that appear in their exam papers. This makes learning, memorizing and preparation for exams very very simple without tensions.

STUDENTS COMING TO MY PLACE FOR LESSONS IS PREFERABLE.....HOWEVER........
HOME VISITS ARE ALSO UNDERTAKEN AT AN EXTRA TRAVEL SUPPLEMENT.

Personal Description:
I currently live in the Oxfordshire area and have just finished studying for a Masters Degree in history at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. I previously attended Kingston university where i studied for my BA in history. Throughout my time at university I have studied politics, economic, philosophy and english and would be happy and confident to tutor in all of these areas. I have extensive experience working with children of all ages, this comes not only through academic tuition, but managing and training cricket and rugby teams.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past four years I have taught over ten children all of whom have been at varying levels. This has included teaching multiple exam boards, and various subjects. I have also been working as a teacher at a home school for four children, this has involved taking the children on school trips both in the UK and other places around the world. Therefore, as part of this role I have to set lesson plans, mark work, and set homework.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to remember each person is different and that they all learn differently therefore I ensure that I am very adaptable and flexible to the students needs. I also feel that you learn best when you find something interesting therefore I like to make sure that all lessons are interesting and that the tutee can relate to the subject/topic.

Personal Description:
My name is Sophia, I have experience of being a tutor for a year and I have a passion for the work I do.

I currently teach those of a KS1-KS2 level between 6-11 years of age, although I would also consider teaching pupils just outside of this age bracket.

I am able to travel up to 10-15 miles outside of Reading in Berkshire, provided the location is near a train/bus station as I do not currently drive a car.

N.B. Rates will be slightly higher further away from Reading due to travel costs.

Teaching Experience:

I have a year's experience of teaching with young children, with a particular focus on Maths and English. I have receieved nothing but good feedback from parents about their child's progress.

I used to babysit children before I started tutoring and have grown up with young children around me. I therefore naturally have the required patience and a good disposition with them in order to teach effectively.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child has a different approach to learning that is best for them. You may have heard of the three different learning styles that people usually have - either kinesthetic, visual or auditory. I remember personally going through school being told this, when in actual fact all three of them were beneficial to me.

I have the ability to work with your child and find the best method for them, but also make it fun. No one likes sitting in a classroom for 8 hours, and then having to sit down for a further hour or two and have to study out of a text book.

My approach to tutoring is interactive, I will not have your child sat down with a textbook every week. I produce my own flashcards, use the laptop, etc - different methods in order to keep your child engaged.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated in Modern Languages (French & Italian) from Oxford University and am looking to tutor children up to A level in French or Italian, and up to GCSE level in English (including English as a Foreign Language.)

Teaching Experience:

My past teaching experience includes:
Private GCSE French tutoring
Teaching English to children and adults in Senegal
Teaching English to two young Italian children as their au pair

Tutoring Approach:

I have a flexible approach to tutoring and will adapt my style and the content of the lessons to your child's needs. I strongly believe that language learning should not be a chore, and so do my very best to make tutoring enjoyable through a wide variety of conversation, vocabulary and grammar exercises based on topics that interest each individual.

I look forward to hearing from you!
