Personal Description:
I am a friendly and passionate graduate from Oxford University with a love for languages. Having achieved a first class degree in French and Linguistics, I am keen to pass on my knowledge and love of language and literature to other students. I completed a research Masters in West African French literature, and am currently pursuing my studies in the second year of my doctorate whilst also developing my teaching experience. I hold a TEFL qualification and have taught a wide range of students in France, Brazil and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL teaching:
- Beginner and Intermediate classes at International House London as part of training. Highly commended.
- Part of a student-led initiative in Oxford to teach English to low wage workers. We organised evening classes for international adult students of multiple levels of proficiency.
- Teaching experience in Wizard and ERTE schools in Bahia, Brazil.
- Private tutoring for GCSE student as well as adults learning French.
- English tandem learning with advanced adult learner from China: conversational and written English.

British council:
- English teacher for 11-16 year olds in Laval, France in 2009-10. Planned and delivered English lessons focussed on speaking and listening, current affairs, and reading skills.

Warwick University:
- Teaching first and second year students in French language and literature as part of my PhD.

Primary school:
- Teaching assistant 2006-7 in Garden House School, London. Prepared and assisted lessons for year 1 pupils, as well as organising timetables and caring for students. Involved some special needs assistance.

Youth work:
- Worked as part of two youth work teams over 3 years to organise activities and teach teenagers aged 15-19.

Mentoring:
- Reading programmes with younger students struggling with English language.
- Advised and assisted GCSE and A-level students in preparation for exams and applying for higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

Depending on the individual needs of each student, I will prepare a range of tasks to build confidence in specific areas of weakness. From past experience, a lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers to learning, so in all cases I seek to reassure a student of existing strengths and abilities before and during our tuition. More generally, we will develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through different activities to strengthen and accelerate ongoing language learning. Where appropriate/desired, I will bring in relevant texts and materials to develop broader reading building up analytical and critical skills. Grammar work will always feature, though in well-balanced chunks which aim to be accessible AND enjoyable!

Most importantly, I hope to inspire students of any level to relish and enjoy their studies, and to yearn for a more solid grasp of their subject and a higher proficiency in each area of language learning.

Personal Description:
Hello there,
My name is Elizabeth. I am a playwright and teacher. I have been working in the Arts for the last twenty years and have published two plays and written 10. One of my plays is currently being developed for the screen. I have written and performed in children's animation on a number of series for Brown bag films ( double academy award nominees). My background and training as a teacher,writer, performer in the Arts has led me to develope a style and approach to my role as a teacher that I would describe as both fun and focused! I feel my passion for my chosen field will infect any student of Drama and related subjects with a verve and focus they may not have experienced before. We all have a tutor or teachers that have influenced or led to a turning point in our education through their style and approach to the subject. Changing our perspective and leading us through the door of confusion and into light of understanding. I hope to be that tutor for you.

Teaching Experience:

12 years as a freelance tutor and drama examiner at both primary and third leval education. 15 years experience in workshop and performance technique in the Stanislavski system.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is one of consistency coupled with patience and encouragement towards achieving a goal in a reasonable amount of time so as not to overwhelm the student. The Tutor I feel should be there in a supportive role as well as being the students guide and pedagog. We as tutors are not there to just regurgitate information, rather we should encourage the student to learn. Understanding their needs when it comes to learing one hopes to also imbue them with a love of the subject. Setting homework that encourages them to think for themselves, read outside the course, imagine, devlope skills that may have been neglected.

Personal Description:
I studied Theology at both Leeds Trinity College and Durham University, where I achieved a First Class Honours degree and later Merit. After doing regular guest teaching and classroom assistance, I took the PTLLS Level 4 at the Advance Training Academy and began tutoring in 2014. Since then I have taught people from Cramlington, Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, and Sunderland (to name just a few examples). Each of my students has steadily increased their grades, achieving A*-C.

My aim is to provide first quality tuition in Religious Studies and Philosophy and to help people become more confident in these subjects. I am an individual who is committed to making education a lasting experience rather than a lecture to be endured. My experiences have taught me that each student has the potential to grow and change. To that end I take on students of all dispositions, from the confident and capable to nervous and struggling type.

I am based in the North East of England and offer face-to-face tuition to anyone in this region. However, I offer online tuition to people from other regions (Skype, phone or email).

If you want extra help, email me and we can set up an ice-breaker session. Each lesson from then onwards is specifically tailored to your learning style. We can then focus on a combination of extra content and exam technique. I will continuously ask for feedback to make sure that you are satisfied with the quality of service.

Teaching Experience:

My experience is threefold:
Classroom assistance: I did classroom work at Gateshead Volunteering and Opportunities Centre and New College Durham (2013). My duties involved: helping struggling students with classroom activities, helping them to express themselves and dealing with classroom behavioural issues. When working with students, I was noted for being approachable, compassionate, kind and patient.
Guest teaching: I gave regular guest lessons in Theology and Religious studies at Leeds Trinity University College, Jesmond Methodist Church, Gosforth High School and the Royal Grammar School (2011-14). My lessons were recognised as well-prepared, thought-provoking, and thorough.
Personal tutoring: since I started tutoring in the North East, I have taught students from Cramlington, Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, Gosforth, and Sunderland. I have also given online tuition to students at various regions of the UK (2013-). See testimonials for clients' views on me.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer two types of tuition:
Face-to-face: tuition is conducted at the student's home. It is always good practice to have an adult around the house. Face-to-face tuition is available to any student within reasonable travelling distance of Newcastle City Centre.
Online: tuition is conducted via phone, Skype and email (depending on the client preference). Online tuition is available to any student in the UK.

Each lesson is tailored to individual needs. The preliminary meeting will focus on your learning needs, and from this we will establish your goals for the tuition and the process for helping you to meet them. We will discuss how we can make the sessions play to your individual learning styles and strengths.

In lessons, we usually focus on two specific areas:
Extra teaching: we will usually have a discussion on a particular topic.
You will be given a detailed hand-out, some discussion questions, and (if necessary) a brief background on the important key thinkers.
Essay-writing: I will provide an essay-writing formula, which we will then
apply to past-paper questions, which will support you to write essays based on past exam papers. As part of the service, I will review the answer and provide detailed feedback to support further learning.

Personal Description:
A resident of Edinburgh for the past twelve years I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things myself. I am fairly well travelled, enjoy the arts and have a passion for working alongside others to help them achieve their goals.

I am a professional actor with degree level qualifications in both Philosophy (Dundee University) and Acting (Queen Margaret University College).

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with adults in improving spoken and written English for UK degree entry level. I have also worked with college and university students in the Middle East (UAE) to train science and drama education in both Arabic and English.

For several years I have visited schools in both the public and private sectors delivering reading, drama and science communication classes.

I have regularly taught 5-15 years drama in private classes and enjoy working with pre-drama school entrants of all ages in working on giving the best entrance audition possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I am confident at creating a structured approach that works with a pupil's own strengths and needs to provide a tailor-made package for learning.

Ideally I meet with each student to discuss their learning needs, current level and expected outcomes.

Although it is important to push the boundaries of learning, it should always be a workload that is both manageable and individually tailored.

People learn best when they are enjoying themselves, so I try my best to make learning fun and interactive.

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired Computing Teacher and IT Manager and have worked with IT and Computing for more than 20 years. I am qualified to Masters Degree level in Computer Science and have been teaching Computing / IT both in school and privately since 1992.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching at A level for over 20 years and also have had many private tutees during that time. I have dealt with many different students of various ability and recognise the requirements to deal with different ability levels. One to one private tuition is, of course, different to classroom teaching and thus important to deliver the subject accordingly.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one tuition is as much about increasing the confidence of the tutee as it is about enhancing their knowledge. Therefore, the approach is very much to connect with the tutee and identify and develop the skills required in the tutee.

  • Computer Studies / I.T.

Personal Description:
I am a young qualified Latin and Ancient Greek teacher living in Colchester, Essex. I have moved away from full-time teaching, preferring to explore business interests while continuing with my passion for Classics through tutoring and in my own time.
I have a First Class BA in Classics from Cambridge, where I also studied for and received my teaching qualification (PGCE). I then taught Latin and Greek at a private school (Years 7-13) in London for two years before moving back to Colchester (where I grew up) in August 2016.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher in Classics (PGCE, Cambridge). I taught Latin and Greek for two years at a private school in London to all years from Year 7 to 13.
I have 100+ hours of private tutoring experience, including 25+ hours over Skype, in Latin and Greek from Common Entrance to A level.
My other experience includes:
I am currently also tutoring Maths A level (Edexcel) and English as a foreign language to an Italian who needs to pass her IELTS.
I also have experience in 11+, common entrance and Oxbridge interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

My strengths lie in making my tutees relaxed and comfortable: my students work hard and learn not because they have to, but because they want to. I learn where my students need to improve and how my students learn best and adapt my sessions to their needs. Some students need to learn by rote, others need to put it into practice. However we do it, my students and I work together to reach our targets and achieve success with dynamic and enjoyable lessons.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Matthew, I am currently studying for my masters in architecture at the Architectural Association. I am a graduate of Princeton University and St. Paul's School, London. I recieved top marks at Further Maths A-Level and studied Maths at a higher level while at Princeton.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching my peers while at Princeton University and have continued tutoring since moving back to the UK. Over the past three years I have taught students at various levels and abilities; from higher level GCSE to Further Mahs A-Level, as well as US university entrance exams (SAT and ACT).

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is to teach a full understanding of the material, so that the student is able to engage with material in way that means they can tackle any problem. Often in higher level exams questions will have many topics layered on top of one another, so a deep level of understanding and an ability to apply mathematical methods is required. In my experience the best way to deal with this is for the student to not only know the methods, but also understand why they are being applied. I have also found that this understanding is difficult to grasp from a conventional classroom setting.

After this process I then turn to focus on exam technique specific to the exam board the student is testing through.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant, specializing in supporting students with Special Educational Needs - particularly those with Autism Spectrum Conditions.
I am reliable, approachable and patient; I will always strive to find a method and approach that suits each student best.
I live in Newark and have several years experience tutoring young people.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for 8 years and have supported both Primary and Secondary age pupils who struggle to reach their full potential. I am qualified and specialize in supporting students with Special Educational Needs, in particular those with an Autism Spectrum Condition. I currently work within the English department at a Secondary school, supporting students in all year groups and of all abilities. Outside of work, I tutor students who need a boost with their English and/or Maths, from preparing for SATs to retaking their GCSEs.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy exploring new methods and ensuring that I find what best motivates each individual student to engage and succeed. My approach is fun and relaxed, breaking subjects into manageable chunks in order to foster confidence.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching undergraduates in Psychology & statistics at Sunderland University but then became a full time teacher of Psychology in 1994 after completing my PGCE. By 1997 I was Head of Psychology at a large Sixth Form College & I became a Senior Tutor in 2000. In 2005 I was promoted to lead Pastoral Care in one of the largest sixth form colleges in the country. In 2001 I took up the role of Psychology Examiner for the OCR board and served for 6 years before leaving formal teaching in 2007. Since then I have set up a training company delivering courses to teachers in one-to-one guidance. In 2014, I re-visited the role of Psychology Examiner for OCR & I am currently expanding my commitment to assessment and have recently completed an additional qualification for OCR.

Tutoring Approach:

Every learner is different & it follows that the reasons for struggling with a subject are different. Therefore it is crucial for a tutor to understand the students' approach to study in order to design appropriate sessions to enable progress in that subject. For me, knowing the student is just as important as knowing the subject.
Exam Focus. To achieve the higher grades at Psychology, you have to be confident with independent critical analysis. By focusing our sessions on the higher skills involved in psychology - research methods, ethics, issues, etc - you will develop your confidence in this area.
