Testimonials
"In the six months my son has been with Michael he has improved at such a fast rate it's been hard to keep up: 100% for Maths results, top of the class for long handwriting assignments, being moved to the top groups for both Maths and Literacy. Michael's manner and methods are both inspiring and effective."
Many thanks, Ms. Julia
"My daughter Annie had Maths tuition with Michael. It really boosted Annie's confidence. At the start of tutoring Annie regularly scored around 30% in her minute Maths tests at School. Within no time she was getting 100%. I would definitely recommend Michael."

Personal Description:
I have a good personal manner ,giving confidence to my students. I am semi-retired and enjoy the countryside painting ,reading and sport.Have a crrent CRB.

Teaching Experience:

I have twenty five years of teaching experience in primary ,preparatory and secondary schools. My main subject is maths but I have also taught ICT ,Business Studies and EFL.

Tutoring Approach:

Giving confidence to my students is very important and is a springboard to success.Having a plan with achievable targets is useful.Building a good relationship with discussion as to progress and reliability is important.

Personal Description:
I am 54 years old, I am married with four children. I have a degree ( Joint Honours, 2.1 in Agriculture with Agricultural Economics) and a Cert Ed. I am a member of the Institute for Learning. I have taught a wide range of subjects over 28 years and am able to coach you to success whether you are looking for science, geography, Excel spreadsheets, English as a Foreign Language or even French and German ( I worked in both countries when I was younger)

Teaching Experience:

I can help you prepare for exams in Geography, Biology, Ecology, French and German. I have taught English as a Foreign Language over many years. I can also help you with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, particularly for Business. I am a patient, enthusiastic and committed teacher with 28 years experience particularly with post 16 and adult education. I have taught agriculture and related topics over that time, and very much enjoyed diversifying my teaching portfolio as new courses arose at the college. I have taught a range of biology and geography related topics, including plant and soil science, crop science, crop production, livestock production, environmental issues, ecology, woodland management. In business I have helped many people develop diverse enterprises, preparing carefully costed cash flow projections. I very much enjoy seeing people develop confidence with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, which are an invaluable tool.

Tutoring Approach:

I am convinced that one-to-one tuition is by far the most efficient way in which a person can progress and gain confidence. Often someone can grasp a topic in 5 minutes of one-to-one that would have taken 2 hours to cover with a larger group. Once you are confident with a topic, we move on rapidly to the next one. A current A level tutee of mine told his father "I learnt more in that 2 hour session than I have all term at school" and his headteacher wrote to congratulate him on his improved grades. (The reason for this is not that his teacher is bad, far from it, but a tutor can give you personal one-to-one attention, concentrating on the bits you need) I always ensure that the learners are confident with each step before progressing further.

Personal Description:
I'm an experienced professional maths tutor with a Cambridge maths degree, an abiding love for maths and a passion to help students discover and master maths for themselves!

I teach secondary school students at A-level (including IB and Cambridge Pre-U), GCSE (including IGCSE), Common Entrance and KS3. I also teach mature students, and university students requiring maths to support other degree subjects. I have prepared students for exams from all the major exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and OCR-MEI. I also prepare students for STEP and for numeracy or numerical reasoning tests, including the numeracy skills test for prospective teachers.

Two of my three children have been through school and university and one is still at secondary school, so I have been engaged closely with the education system at all levels and understand what both students and parents are looking for to achieve academic success.

My family and I have lived in Cranleigh for over 20 years and I have connections with a number of local schools.

Teaching Experience:

I have thousands of hours of experience of providing 1-1 maths tuition. At peak times in the year I have more than 40 active students on my books, spread across all secondary school levels up to A-level Further Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

More than almost any other subject, maths needs confidence to be built, and a patient, individually tailored approach. Able students may need practice to strengthen problem-solving and eliminate errors, a more joined-up view of maths to deepen their understanding, and challenge to stretch their capabilities. Others struggle to understand at a more basic level, and an imaginative and pictorial approach with plenty of real world examples is needed to achieve that "penny drops" moment!

Depending on the student, tuition may include any or all of: coaching to consolidate (or anticipate) teaching at school; revision for examinations; working through past examination papers; teaching and testing of specific sections of the curriculum; or more free-wheeling exploration of mathematical topics. By agreement with students and parents, homework may be set and marked.

I'm available to teach at any time in the week, either on weekdays (daytime or evenings) or at weekends. I'm happy to teach in my own home, or in students' homes in Cranleigh or up to 10 miles away in the surrounding area in Surrey and West Sussex, including Guildford, Horsham and Godalming. If teaching in students' homes I may agree an additional charge for travel if this exceeds 10 minutes each way.

I offer engaging and effective mathematics tuition at all secondary levels including A-level and GCSE. If you want to succeed in your exams and also to deepen your appreciation of mathematics and have fun, then get in touch!

  • 11+ (secondary) (35 p.h.)

I am 23 years old, and a graduate of French and Management from Leeds University. I am currently living in Oxford. I have a passion for the French language and culture and would love to share and help pass this on to other young people alongside my work.
(I am the brunette in the picture)

Teaching Experience:

I have spent a year working in France as a teaching assistant with the British Council, where I taught English to students aged 15-22. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience working in a different culture, and to hone my presentation and organisational skills in a new and challenging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make learning fun, and to motivate students. I do this by setting interesting and diverse themes. I then divide individual classes into several activities to help keep students engaged. I regularly employ vocabulary games and set challenges, which are surprisingly effective way for students to learn and retain new words whilst making the lessons more enjoyable for the students!

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Rhea and I love to teach. I am most excited about Art as this is my passion (I am currently working as a Graphic Designer). I also really enjoy learning about science (in particular neuroscience and psychology). I find astrology fascinating and so am both creative and a bit nerdy.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in both primary and secondary schools as a teaching assistant. This was primarily in art in the secondary school, teaching children how to draw and use various materials to create great artwork. In primary school, I have helped teach literacy, numeracy, phonics, reading, science and art. During these experiences I have found ways of explaining new information to children so they can apply it without supervision. I also have worked in various school holiday clubs, so I relate very well to children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is individualistic - each person has their own learning style and it is important to understand which way a student learns best. Some people are kinaesthetic learners, others are verbal and some have an amazing ability to memorize information. I am personally a hands on learner, but I am able to adapt to various techniques for students. I am friendly and personable and think it is important to develop a good relationship with tutees.

Personal Description:
I have a background in senior industrial and commercial management, both in the UK and overseas; also senior experience in the public sector (local government and NHS). I took time out in my thirties to gain my PGCE.

Teaching Experience:

I have never taught full-time (although I was once up to around two-thirds of a full timetable). I have worked in further education colleges and as a supply-teacher, mostly in secondary. In addition, I have long experience as a governor of my old private-sector school, so understand very well the requirements for successful 11+ and 13+ entrance. I have been tutoring since 2000, and have a multitude of "success-stories".

Tutoring Approach:

First and foremost: flexibility. Equally, I have a wealth of life-experience, across sectors, so can, as my students have often remarked, bring subjects to life: they are seldom bored, if ever. I also have a large stock of teaching resources and past examination-papers and tests. I combine light-heartedness and a level of informality with a focus on the need to meet objectives and achieve results(sometimes having set them).

Personal Description:
I have been a tutor for over 20 years and a personal tutor since moving to Driffield in 2006. I have always been keenly interested in science subjects and gained a BSc (hons) in biology in 1995.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 20 years experience as a tutor, beginning in adult education for Leeds University. For the last 8 years I have been a personal tutor for both GCSE and A level students, teaching AQA, Edexcel and Baccalaureate syllabuses. In 2009 I gained the level 3 PTLLS teaching qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very enthusiastic about teaching biology and I believe that science should be interesting (and definitely not scary) and that understanding key principles makes the detailed stuff so much easier. I tailor each session to the individual student's needs, spending any necessary time on topics that may be causing difficulties, and use a very patient approach to improve subject knowledge, exam technique as well as improving the student's confidence.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, qualified and experienced teacher. I am a native German. I moved to the UK in 1991 just after meeting my future husband. We have three grown-up children, and education and parenthood have been very much part of our lives for many years.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in secondary schools and colleges in the UK for over 15 years as a German teacher and Head of German. I have conducted GCSE and A-level oral exams for the WJEC examination board, written several syllabuses for German GCSE and A-level groups and organised pupil exchange visits over 6 years. The academic work and pastoral care at the school I worked at was rated "excellent" by Estyn. At present, I am working at home with pupils who are eager to improve their grades at Key stage 3, GCSE and A-level, with adults who are relocating to Germany, and with architects, employees in the car industry and Financial advisers (Business German) who have business relations with Germany. I also teach children at primary level, who have moved to Britain from Germany and are keen to practise German with games, stories, songs and puppet theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

Language tuition has been my passion for a long time and allows me to be supportive and creative, motivating pupils and believing in their abilities. One-to-one tuition is very productive, because it adapts to the individual learner's needs easily. My experience in schools and with exams has given me the knowledge of standards required for GCSE and A-level exams, and many pupils have commented on how much improvement they have seen in their school work, and in their confidence, as a result of our lessons. My aim is to make language learning enjoyable, and therefore I always encourage a warm and relaxed atmosphere for lessons. My lessons are structured, integrating all four language skills speaking, listening, reading and writing, and also include grammar, pronunciation, games, video clips, and lots of authentic material and cultural knowledge.

Personal Description:
With 7 years teaching and tutoring experience at A-Level, GCSE, iGCSE, undergraduate university level and IB, I have helped tutor over 50 private students alongside my job as a full-time classroom teacher.

I am patient and build confidence in my students, highlighting areas for improvement and encouraging progression. I tailor my teaching to suit the need of my students, considering prior knowledge, confidence, English ability and style of learning in my approach.

With a masters in Mathematics Education, and as someone who now trains teachers, I have an up-to-date understanding on teaching and changes in the National Curriculum (particularly with the new GCSEs and A-level). This enables me to be ahead of the game with knowing about teaching and learning developments, government policy in education, and other issues that affect students' experiences of mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have specialist teaching experience with girls aged 11 to 18, as well as with students who have English as an additional language (although have tutored a wide range of students, from primary boys aged 9, up to undergraduate students aged 19). I have been head of department in my previous place of work, as well as head of year, so understand the needs of students in maths, as well as holistically.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is informed by my teaching strategies in the classroom. I try to pre-assess students in order to understand where their current knowledge of mathematics is, work with the student to build a plan in order to fill in any gaps in their knowledge, and help them achieve their goals in a time frame agreed upon with the student and parents. I then evaluate the student's learning informally each session, through verbal feedback and worked problems. I generally model technique through worked examples, as well as creating my own problems based on past papers in order to prepare students for the demands of examination. Throughout the process I ensure that students are encouraged and enjoy learning mathematics, and build confidence in their ability so they feel they can (and want to) achieve.
