Personal Description:
I am a 37 year old tutor based in Lewes. For the past fifteen years I have been teaching pupils of all ages and abilities in many different capacities and have an excellent success rate with my pupils.

I also work with children with MLD & behavioural challenges as with adults of all ages and nationalities.

Should you wish to use me, you would encounter a tutor easy to relate to and learn from in an enjoyable and easy environment. I believe a student who is at ease with their tutor is far more likely to progress no matter where they are starting from!

Some reviews from previous parents:

"Rob tutored our son for a few months in preparation for 11+ exams and has been amazing at it! Although we have now stopped the lessons due to moving country, we have seen great progress in our son's abilities. Rob has been very methodical and able to recognise our son's weak areas and work on them. He particularly helped our son in his creative writing tasks! We couldn't recommend Rob more. We would be reaching out to him again if we need to in the future." (Katia and her 10 yr old son Max Secondary Entrance Exams)

"Rob has been my tutor for AS AQA Drama Theory for nearly three months now and I am thrilled with the progress I have made thanks to our lessons. Rob is an encouraging and engaging teacher and his lessons have allowed me to improve from a grade C to consistent A's in a fraction of time. I cannot recommend him enough for anyone who is looking for a one to one tutor in order to boost their grades." (Kate, 18, A-Level Drama Resit)

"Excellent work in preparing my daughter for her 11+ entrance exam (English and Math). Knowledgeable, great in explaining and keeping her interested in the subjects. Great manner and dedication, always punctual and extreamely reliable. Would not wish for a different tutor in this important time for our daughter" (Davorin and his 10 yr old daughter Sana, City of London School entrance examinations)

"Rob tutored my daughter for GCSE English. She found these sessions hugely helpful and enjoyed them even. At the time of writing this she does not have her results but she she is certainly more confident than she ever has been. Rob was very reliable and punctual. I would whole heartily recommend him as an English tutor." (Deborah and her 16 yr old daughter Yael who struggled with dyslexia, GCSE English. Yael went up from a predicted D to a B)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe one to one private tuition requires a tutor who can adapt to the needs of the pupil. I would wish to meet the pupil initially to establish how they may best be assisted and what the pupil's key areas of concern are. Each mind, young or old, needs different approaches and I believe my strongest ability is an adaptability to meet the varying needs and requirements of every student.

My approach, in most cases would be to follow a curriculum, finding out where their difficulties lie within this curriculum and how it would be best to resolve them.

I tend to use past papers when it comes to exam based tuition as this is ultimately what they will be faced with come exam time! However, when I have a pupil for longer there is more scope for more imaginative teaching or simply assistance with difficult homework.

With each of my previous pupils I have needed and been able to assist them in a way that is individually appealing to them and I have never had a pupil who has not achieved their desired results.

Personal Description:
HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND SUCCESSFUL TUTOR WITH 8 YEARS TEACHING AND TUTORING EXPERIENCE


I have a 1st Class Hons degree in Biology from Imperial College London and a PGCE from Kings College London.
I have extensive assessment experience including as an examiner for OCR, giving me an excellent insight into what students actually get the marks for at GCSE and how to answer questions successfully.

I have wide experience in teaching Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (ages 11-18) and have been consistently graded either Good or Outstanding in my lessons.

Additionally, I have tutored a number of primary students to raise confidence or prepare them for secondary school.

I am passionate about my subject and am keen to pass this on to my students.

I have a record of excellent results for students in all 3 sciences and a proven track record at getting pupils to their target grade or better.

Teaching Experience:

KS3 Science and maths
KS4 Triple and double science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology, GCSE and BTEC)
KS5 Biology

I have taught for 8 years in London and Bristol, at key stage 3, 4 and 5 for both double award and triple science GCSE and A level for biology which is my main specialist subject.

I have been graded as outstanding in the majority of my lesson observations over my teaching career and have an excellent record of achievement with all of my classes.

I am very experienced in tutoring science and confidently offer maths as an additional subject to GCSE.

I am currently teaching at School in Bristol where I am teaching KS3, KS4 Science (both the triple and the double award) and A level biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tutor according to individuals needs. I am happy to work through homework, coursework and projects and to help students revise, depending on their requirements for that session, although I will not simply give out the answers but will help them work them out.
I am flexible with my tutoring and am happy to do it weekly or more or less regularly depending on what is is desired, as I only accept a few students at a time, in order to fully cater for my students.

I aim to build a relationship with my students where they are happy to ask any and all questions and lead their own learning in this way. I find that the range of methods and resources I have acquired as a qualified teacher help me to tutor to the individual needs of the student. I am more than happy to adapt methods of learning to assist students learning.

I am usually able to bring a good range of resources but request that pupils provide their school work and books so I can make sure I am teaching the right things.

Personal Description:
Highly motivated physics Tutor.
Teaching experience accumulated by preparing more than 40 students for A-Level exams.

Teaching Experience:

My name is Anton. I have master`s degree in Physics from University of New Hampshire. Besides my background as researcher I have four years of experience as a London based tutor. I primary teach A-level physics and most of my students were taking OCR, AQA, or Edexcel exams. I occasionally teach GCSE and University level subjects, such as Mechanics, Electrodynamics, and Quantum Mechanics. Currently I teach part-time in a private school.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is flexible. Usually I easy detect weak spots in students understanding and this gives me chance to focus on the most relevant topics for a particular student. I carefully prepare myself for each session, and my goal is to make the student involved in the lesson not just leaving him to listen to me. In my opinion the Math involved in A-Level physics is not hard at all, and many students that are good in Math think they can handle physics relatively easy, but this is most of the time not true. I apply extra effort, in my lessons to make sure that student understands the physics concepts not just memorizing facts. My observation is that if the student goal is to achieve an A grade it requires at least two hours of tutoring per week throughout the academic year, of course sometimes one hour is Okay, and some ambitious student ask for more than two hours per week. In any case it will give me great pleasure to help you improve your knowledge and make you feel the beauty of PHYSICS.

If you have any questions please let me know.
Good luck,
Anton

APPROACH TO TUITION

Tailoring tuition to suit the student
The advantage of one-to-one tuition is that I can assess what specific needs a student has, and organise my lessons around those needs. Some students need essay technique help some have a specific set of topics they want to go over others might need an entire course taught to them as they have left school or are being home educated.

Knowing the syllabus
All GCSEs and A Levels follow a national syllabus, and I know them all very well. In my first lesson with any student I will make sure they are aware of the overall requirements of the syllabus, on a topic-by-topic basis. I will always stick to what the student needs to know to pass that particular syllabus I do not needlessly make students learn things they do not need to know.

Digital handouts
In my years of tuition, I have built up a cloud-based digital archive of hundreds of handouts. Say a student is learning about arguments for the existence of God for RS A Level - I have handouts very clearly outlining the Ontological, Teleological and Cosmological arguments and all relevant criticisms. These handouts are a great extra help alongside my teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have thousands of hours of tuition experience, having taught hundreds of students. I have dozens of letters of recommendation. Some of the specific subjects I have taught include:

Government & Politics (Edexcel and OCR)
Cambridge Pre-U Theology & Philosophy
Philosophy A Level (AQA, OCR and Edexcel)
Religious Studies (OCR, AQA and Edexcel) GCSE, A Level
Sociology (AQA) AS and A2
Theology and Religious Studies at degree level (I have helped six different students receive good grades for third year RS dissertations)
Oxbridge applications and interview practice

I have a written reference from a doctor of Philosophy and college chaplain at Cambridge University, as well as an excellent reference from my full-time tutoring placement for the last year.

Extracts from letters of recommendation (all available in full on request):

"Incredibly reliable and professional...James' superior knowledge and passion for his subject resulted in my son gaining both in confidence and ability and led him to succeed in achieving a Distinction grade when his school had predicted a Merit."
Mother of Pre-U student, 2013.

"James's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend James highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"A great source of help to my daughter over the past two years; making smooth preparations for her to retake her AS level, alongside her continuing work towards her A level. He contributed invaluably towards her outstanding AS level pass mark of 100% . For her A2, Olivia received an A."
Mother of Philosophy A Level (AQA) Candidate, 2012/13.

"James was an excellent tutor. He explained complex ideas clearly and tailored his tutoring to suit my son. Importantly, he acted as a strong motivator and made sure rigourous revision notes were made... humourous, friendly and a good natured motivator. My son received an A*".
Mother of GCSE Religious Studies student (OCR), 2012/13.

"He immediately established a very good working relationship with my daughter which encouraged her to really engage with the subject and plan and think about the topics in depth. He helped her with the structure of her essays and how to build up a coherent and well thought out argument...I would highly recommend James as a Philosophy tutor."
Mother of Religious Studies (OCR) student, 2012/13.

"Jame's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend Jame's highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"James was very familiar with the curriculum and both his discussions with my son and the work set were of an appropriate and challenging level, set work was always marked and discussed at the following tutorial. My son received a good Distinction in his exams."
Mother of Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), 2013.

"My daughter was unable to attend school due to illness, and so James was entirely responsible for her preparation. She received a Distinction in her exams. James was a diligent tutor, who managed to convey this difficult subject with a lightness of touch. I know that my daughter enjoyed her lessons enormously, and that she found it easy to learn from James. He not only imparted the necessary knowledge but also inspired her with confidence."
Mother of homeschooled Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), who I taught the entire syllabus to in 2012/13.

"James was brilliant. Despite tutoring my two twin daughters at the same time, he adapted his teaching style to suit both of them differently. He made the whole course much easier for them to understand than they had found at school. Beyond this, he boosted their confidence and increased their essay writing skills. He provided a large amount of digital handouts which they also found useful. Both girls ended up with very high As in all the topics he taught them in."
Mother of twin daughters taught in Religious Studies (OCR) and Philosophy (AQA), 2012/13.

"...James covered far more content than the school had taught in a whole year and to a greater depth and understanding. His knowledge of the syllabus and ability to explain complex philosophical arguments and content, in a way that my daughter could understand, was second to none... put back a confidence in my daughter that had been partly destroyed in this subject due to poor teaching at school. I have never seen my daughter so relaxed and happy after taking an exam than she was after re-taking these two."
Mother of homeschooled candidate in Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2012/13.

Personal Description:
I am a highly motivated, friendly and professional tutor. I am a Sociology and Psychology Lecturer at an Independent College with extensive experience (over 16 years) of teaching both subjects at A level (AQA specification). I am passionate about my subjects and enjoy working with young people and passing on this passion and motivating them to reach their potential.

My teaching style is very interactive using students' existing knowledge and developing this further. Students are persuaded to stretch themselves and work as hard as possible in order to achieve success.

I have the ability to convey understanding in relation to complex areas of both subjects and I am able to communicate effectively to people at different academic levels and of varying academic ability.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience teaching the AQA specification for both Psychology & Sociology. I have an excellent track record with 70% of Sociology students and 60% of Psychology students achieving grades A-B (June 2016 results).

For the past 16 years, I have also taught private students both subjects at A level on a one-to-one and small group basis. Many of my students have continued to study these subjects at degree level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is very student-centred, tailored to each student's individual requirements. I tend to use a two-way interactive approach with a focus on problem areas and difficulties that the student may need to work through. I like to use a variety of teaching techniques such as discussions, white board and powerpoint slides.

I believe that in order to achieve success students benefit from learning good exam techniques and also by working through past exam papers and plenty of practice answering exam questions.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of German and fluent in English and French. I moved to Cambridge in 2014. I enjoy sport, travelling and cooking.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and highly motivated language teacher from Switzerland. Before moving to Cambridge 3 years ago, I spent more than 13 years teaching secondary school level modern foreign languages in Switzerland, specialising in English, German and French and preparing the pupils for further and higher education. I have tutored students here in Cambridge up to A Level standard, teach at the Deutsche Samstagsschule on Saturday mornings (GCSE level) and also teach adult education classes.
I am keen to share my passion for languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I always look for the most appropriate teaching method to keep my students stimulated and motivated. I use songs, games, visualisations and multimedia to help simplify complex issues, often create my own supplementary course material and regularly revise topics to consolidate learning. Teaching English, German and French as foreign languages has enabled me to appreciate the challenges students face understanding the different grammar structures.

Personal Description:
My name is Mo and I am an experienced teacher of Psychology and Sociology, based just off Bishopthorpe road in York.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience of teaching, have worked as a senior examiner for a major exam board for many years as well as leading successful departments of both Psychology and Sociology.

I also work as a freelance academic author and in recent moths have worked with the Oxford University press on it`s new GCSE Psychology textbook and A level Psychology resources. Prior to this I have produced several resources for ZigZag educational for the New A level Psychology specification.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer tailored private tuition for students doing GCSE, A Level, IFP and Access courses. I am passionate about my teaching and offer a student centred approach where each session is planned and moulded to fit the needs of the student. I focus on successful exam technique and marking skills, allowing the student to develop a deeper understanding of what is required of them to achieve excellent results. The students work is regularly marked and discussed giving the student feedback as to their progress and the knowledge of how to correct any errors and gain higher grades.

Tutoring Approach:

We have to keep in mind that learning a language is learning to communicate. The communicative approach will be the method this learning will focus on. This approach requires a previous and careful preparation by the teacher considering different resources and the needs and competences of each person. Practical exercises or drills, essays, listenings, etc. (specific from Audio-lingual method) will serve to reinforce the acquired skills and to complement the language learning.
