Personal Description:
I'm a 46-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

Personal Description:
I am Maths Teacher with over 14 years of experience currently teaching all secondary school ages including GCSE and A-level at a leading independent school in Croydon. I have also tutored for many years, I very much enjoy helping students learn and see the rapid increase in progress and confidence that can be achieved from one-to-one tuition.
My experience includes many years of tuition and preparation for SATs, GCSE and A-Level maths as well as helping with general maths tuition for younger secondary school pupils. I can also help with preparation for the maths part of the 11+ test - entrance exams for grammar or private schools for year 6 pupils. I have also had experience of tutoring IB Studies level maths. I provide tuition in the pupil's own house and am generally available late afternoon or evenings in the Sanderstead , Selsdon, Warlingham, Caterham,Purley, South Croydon and surrounding areas.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully tutored many pupils for Maths GCSE and A-level (Both pure and applied modules) as well as younger secondary aged pupils. I can provide help with exam preparations or more general support with secondary school maths.I have also helped prepare pupils for the maths part of 11+ exams. /entrance test for grammar or private schools. I am currently teaching full time in a private school and have over 14 years of teaching and private tuition experience. I have an excellent track record of results including one of my Year 11 classes achieving a 90% A* rate at GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I can tutor in the pupil's house (depending on the location) at a mutually convenient time, ideally during weekdays after school or evening though I can sometimes do Saturday mornings. I am very punctual and reliable. I can provide materials such as past exam papers or text books if required. I have successfully tutored many pupils to achieve success in both GCSE and A-levels. I can also help with the maths part of common entrance exams and supply materials. My approach is to get the student to think things out for themselves and enable them to gain confidence as they realise that they can answer questions successfully . I encourage students to tell me if, after an explanation, they still are not sure, so that I can try to explain it in a different way.
Feedback / references from recent tutees :
"Thank you for supporting Alex over the last few months with his maths. He felt very confident with his recent statistics paper, which is encouraging. His confidence in maths has definitely grown over the last few months and he is busy revising for C3 and C4 with a positive approach."
Reference from previous A-level + GCSE tutee :"Andrew has been tutoring my son, Michael, for approximately 2 years . Andrew's input has been very helpful to Michael. Andrew is always pleasant and punctual.I would recommend Andrew as a maths tutor "
Michael went on to achieve an A at GCSE and I continued tutoring him for A-level.

Personal Description:
I am a young and enthusiastic private tutor with more than 6 years' experience, specialising in English Literature. I am familiar with a wide range of literature, including many popular school set texts. I welcome tuition requests from students at all levels and of all ages.

I hold a First Class BA degree in English as well as an MA in Victorian Studies with Distinction, both from the University of Exeter. I am also in my final year of a PhD in Victorian Literature at the University of London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught a range of ages and abilities in English Literature, both in the UK and the US. I have tutored children learning to read, primary school children, secondary school students (KS3, GCSE and A level), university students (at BA and MA level), and adult learners (including those studying an online course and those studying with the Open University).

Three years ago I also began giving tuition on English grammar and punctuation to adult learners wishing to improve their business communication skills.

I have helped students write clear, effective and successful personal statements for university applications for more than 7 years.

I also have experience of helping teach primary school children to read, write, and improve their comprehension skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to each individual students according to their needs, following a consideration of their strengths and weaknesses in the course of the first two sessions. This enables me to teach and enthuse each student. When students are shown different ways of looking at a text, and ways in which it relates to their own lives, literature becomes much more accessible, encouraging them to study and achieve better academic grades.

Extra tutoring gives students individual attention beyond the scope of the classroom, and offers an opportunity to look at set texts in more detail, and at the right pace.

Improving students' confidence is central to my approach to tutoring. With individually tailored tutoring, determination to succeed, and improved confidence, my students are able to achieve excellent grades and reach their full potential.

Personal Description:
I am a Fourth Year Medical Student at St Georges University. I attended Wallington High School for Girls and achieved 3 A grades in biology, chemistry and maths. At GCSE, I achieved 8 A* grades and 5 A grades. I am a patient, reliable and trustworthy person and ensure any pupil of mine will be encouraged to reach their full potential and much more. I am full of enthusiasm and believe everyone has the ability to obtain good grades with hard work and perseverance in order to have a bright and promising future. This has been proven with all of the tuition jobs I have taken on.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored all ages from primary school children on help to pass secondary school entrance examinations to pupils sitting GCSEs for maths, english literature and language as well as the sciences. I have obtained good reviews across the board and find tutoring a rewarding job to see pupils grow and achieve their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand every person's unique way of learning and tutor to accommodate these individual needs. I believe the best way for a person to learn is through bursts of theory and a lot of worked examples and practice.

Personal Description:
I am an Oxford graduate (Worcester College), with a degree in Literae Humaniores (Latin and Greek language and literature, as well as ancient and modern philosophy).

I am also a highly experienced classical musician (a singer), having gained experience in a number of world-class choral institutions in Oxford and beyond. I am trained as a choral singer and as a soloist.

I am able to tutor the following subjects:

Latin (beginner/Primary/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual or Adult Learner)
Greek (beginner/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual or Adult Learner)
Classics (beginner/Primary/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual or Adult Learner)
Philosophy (beginner/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual)
Religious Studies (KS3/GCSE)

Singing (beginner to advanced - up to Grade 8 and for Adult/Casual Learners)
Music Theory (beginner to intermediate - up to Grade 5/GCSE)

I am willing and able to teach pupils one-on-one or in groups.


My academic interests include:
Renaissance Humanism and Renaissance European Scholarship
Tudor England
The Tudor Reformation
Classical Reception Studies, particularly the manipulation of the Classics in 17th Century Musical Drama.

My musical interests include:
Vocal anatomy
Pharmacokinetics of the voice
The neurophysiology of singing
17th Century Opera
Renaissance Lute Songs
Sacred music of Europe in the Renaissance.

Teaching Experience:

My main experience of teaching one-on-one is in the form of vocal tuition.

I also have experience of teaching in the classroom, where I have worked with children aged 8-11 teaching a variety of subjects (including English Booster Classes, English Literature, Reading, Egyptology and Drama).

I have a lot of experience of working with young people, with extensive experience gained from working with the Admissions department of Worcester College (at the University of Oxford) as well as working as a Choral Scholar at the College (where I had to provide an example to the young choristers of one of the choirs).

In addition to this I was a Junior Foster Carer for 11 years (from ages 7-18), where I worked alongside various members of Social Services in order to provide a stable home for children in care.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a traditional one, particularly when it comes to the teaching of Latin and Greek, which is taught by composition into the language from English and through the reading of original texts.

I ask for a tutee to try their hardest - as long as they do, they will be met with a tutor who will give their all in order to help them achieve their goal, a tutor dedicated to his teaching and his pupil.

I also incorporate modern methods into my teaching, including the use of ICT and the latest examples of Digital Humanities e.g. The Perseus Project.

Personal Description:
I am a native Greek speaker, born and bred in Athens. I am also fluent in English and have lived in England for 13 years.&#8232;&#8232;

I am keeping in close touch with Greece and the Greek language, which allows me to maintain my fluency, accent and knowledge of the country and the culture.

Teaching Experience:

I am an English teacher by profession and taught Greek students in language schools in Athens for fifteen years.

My students attained excellent examination results throughout my career from junior to advanced levels.&#8232;&#8232;I also held private tuition throughout this period.

&#8232;&#8232;Since coming to England, I have taught Greek privately to English speakers who were interested in acquiring knowledge of the Greek language for various purposes such as holidays, purchasing property in Greece (holiday homes and permanent residence) and people who wanted to enter themselves into the Greek GCSE exams.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all, I am a sensitive listener.

I am patient with excellent skills in conveying my knowledge to my students. Focusing on helping students to feel confident with the various aspects of the language without judging them.

&#8232;&#8232;Finally, I firmly believe that practice makes perfect, which is also my most significant approach to teaching.&#8232;&#8232;

I believe it is important that lessons are interactive and fun. The lessons are customised to the student according to their personal needs, following an initial friendly telephone discussion.

Personal Description:
I am a native French speaker. I am friendly, approachable, patient and non-judgemental. I am passionate about French and English literature. I speak and write a good standard of English and French. I have successfully completed the course PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) (Level 4) at Strode College, Somerset. This is really useful in my role as a tutor.
I studied Philosophy and French literature up to the Baccalauréat in Brittany. I graduated in Brest University where I passed a degree (Deug) in English and American literature, English Grammar, linguistics, Phonetics, translation from English into French and vice-versa. The degree also included American and English History. I have the level of Licence in the same fields as above. I have an up-to-date DBS certificate ( May 2013).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a full time private tutor for over three years now and enjoy this very much. I help teenagers improve their grades for GCSE French and I also successfully prepare students for A levels. My experience involves working with adult and teenage students. Sessions are tailored to the specific needs of students such as someone needing to speak French for work. My work with GCSE students involves explaining from scratch the main points of grammar and guiding their pronunciation so students can perform better for oral and listening exams. At the moment, I am helping a student study the novel Madame Bovary more in depth. This is in preparation for the entry to University. This involves weekly sessions where I prepare questions in French for my student. I expect the student to prepare answers in French. We discuss in French the style of the novelist, the main themes, the protagonists, the plot etc. I spend time carefully preparing sessions with the view of increasing the fluency of students. In the course of the school year 2012-2013 I taught English (via skype) to one of my nieces and she achieved good grades in English for her Baccalaureat. At the same time, I also helped an A level student to study Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. I chose excerpts from the novel and prepared questions for the student. When we met, in addition to going through the prepared questions and analysis, I focused on the pronunciation, grammar and spelling plus vocabulary. I truly enjoy seeing my students improve their confidence in spoken and written French. I can help adults brush on their French or learn the language from a beginner's level up to an advanced level.
One of my students from Wales, Anne wrote: I would highly recommend Annie as a tutor to anyone learning French. She really knows her stuff - not just as a native French speaker but as a teacher who is tuned in to where a learner has problems and knowledge gaps. She is very helpful in supplying the information that you don't get in the textbooks and in providing insights into both written and spoken French. Add to that friendliness and a sense of humour and you have everything you could ask for in an expert language tutor.
Kate from Blagdon wrote this:
"Annie has a natural talent for teaching her native tongue. However, she backs this up with a useful knowledge of grammatical terms and rules, whilst also ensuring that the student is 'au fait' with colloquial French, both spoken and written. She has a knack of emphasizing the positive and endless patience when it comes to ensuring that the student has fully understood the point, as well as forgiving when s/he has (I have) forgotten it once again! Annie is both reasonable and flexible with a warm personality and a nice sense of humour. I have not a moment's hesitation in recommending that she become your French teacher if you are based in or near Glastonbury."
Rosie from Wells, Somerset: 'Annie is a very good French teacher, she is kind, smart, patient. My French has improved just after a few lessons and I really look forward to our next session together'.
The following is a comment by another student,Neil:' Our conversational French sessions are focused but flexible. Either of us can suggest a topic to talk about and we have covered a wide range of subjects. Annie writes a lot of useful notes as we go along. I take these away and regularly refer to them, they are great for revision. I like the fact that Annie can tell me what the French would really say as opposed to what it says in the dictionary. Importantly, we enjoy a laugh'.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to discuss with my students to know exactly what the students want to get from the lessons. I keep in mind that each student has different goals and motives to learn the language. I draw a learning plan to guide the students and myself. My tutoring sessions are tailor-made as students are different with different learning styles. I think it is important that students make progress and for this I think it is also important that the atmosphere be pleasant so I do like it when my students are enjoying their learning and progressing.

I like to focus on the pronunciation so students can be understood properly by French native speakers. It does make things easier for students when they travel to France or if they want to work there, for instance. I focus on the pronunciation, grammar,vocabulary and spelling. I truly enjoy seeing my students improve their confidence in spoken and written French, I also provide tips regarding modern spoken French. While tutoring to beginners, I find that it is important to offer to students a good grasp of grammar as this enables students to start constructing little useful sentences on their own. I correct students on their pronunciation to give them a good start. I am aware that everyone is different and consequently I tend to teach according to the needs of each student. I have an up-to-date DBS certificate ( May 2013).

Personal Description:
I'm a young, vibrant and energetic graduate who works in the media. I have a degree from Westminster Uni, 5 A-levels and 13 GCSEs.

I have a great love of literature, films and theatre and like working with students to develop their understanding of these subjects, but also their passion for them.

I work full time but have time at weekends and some evenings to tutor. Having studied for many year, I would like the opportunity to re-visit some of the subjects I excelled at.

Teaching Experience:

One to one tuition - English/Media studies

Drama Workshops - Secondary Schools (various)

English essay writing tutor - Degree level, Westminster University

Creative media workshops - Secondary Schools (various)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is informal but structured and where possible practical. I am looking to teach primary school students and year 7-9 students, to help them understand texts and grasp concepts and hopefully get them to engage more in the subjects and enjoy them.

Personal Description:
Associate Chartered Accountant with the ICAEW and first class mathematics graduate from the University of Warwick. Have enjoyed studying mathematics and finance academically and for pleasure for over a decade, including helping others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for the subjects along the way. I'm also a proud educational volunteer as a Non-Executive Director and School Governor of a Secondary Academy. Mathematics and education aside, I'm a book lover, piano player and keen (but not quite pro) skier.

Teaching Experience:

Non-Executive Director and School Governor of a Secondary Academy, serving on the Finance and Teaching/Learning committees and as a Governor in charge of the Mathematics department. I've also helped others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for mathematics for over a decade.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to prepare and inspire each student to want to understand the questions and to ultimately explain the answers to me. I constantly ask questions that encourage them to strip each question back to its mathematical basics, enabling them to build upon their knowledge to reach the answer, having fully understood how they arrived at it. Studying mathematics (and finance) for over a decade, and helping others to excel in the subject along the way, has taught me that confidence and enjoyment are key; and confidence and enjoyment are exactly what I instill in each of my students.

  • 11+ (secondary) (£25 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£25 p.h.)
  • Maths
  • GCSE or Standards (£25 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Mary-Anne.

I am a graduate of English Literature from Cardiff University, having achieved a 1st class BAHons. I spend the majority of my time writing and reading, as they are my most loved hobbies. In the future, I hope to undertake a Creative Writing PhD, and continue tutoring privately as my primary occupation.

I have always loved working with children, and continue to do so on a voluntary basis at the local youth group.

Teaching Experience:

Years of private tutoring, both online and one-to-one, in English Literature - for primary, KS2, K23, GCSE and A-Level.

Several months experience working in a tuition centre, tutoring children between the ages of 4 and 15.

Tutoring Approach:

Above all, my teaching style is tailored and lively. I like to keep things interesting so that students not only go away with a higher grade than they would have otherwise achieved, but also a newfound enjoyment of the subject.

I have taught a range of children, between the ages of 4 and 16, with a variety of different needs. I have years of private tutoring experience under my belt, both online and one-to-one, as well as experience working in a tuition centre in the city.
