Personal Description:
I am a qualified, approachable and professional tutor with nine years teaching experience. I am friendly, reliable, patient and I believe in building a student's confidence to help them achieve their potential.

I graduated at the University of Liverpool and achieved a Masters Degree in Chemistry with Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I then completed my teacher training at the University of Nottingham, before going on to work full time as a secondary school teacher.

Teaching Experience:

For the last nine years I have taught:

- Combined Science to Key Stage 3 (in a secondary school environment)
- Biology and Chemistry to GCSE and A Level (in a secondary school environment)
- A range of examination boards, including AQA, OCR, Edexcel and also the IGCSE qualification
- In both a comprehensive and an independent school
- One-to-one private tutoring sessions to students finding Biology, Chemistry and Science difficult
- One-to-one private tutoring sessions to students needing to achieve the highest grades in A Level Biology and Chemistry for entry into Medicine and Oxbridge

As well as teaching and private tutoring I also work as an Examiner so I have an additional insight into exam preparation.

My role as a teacher in an independent school also involves marking entry examinations, so I am able to prepare students for these exams.

During my industrial placement year at university I worked as a Research Scientist for GlaxoSmithKline, applying Biology and Chemistry to researching new pharmaceuticals. I frequently draw on this experience to stretch and challenge students needing to achieve the highest grades for University entry.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly enjoy motivating my students and I have built a variety of teaching resources to help students of all abilities. My students tell me that I help them break down complex information into more manageable sections. As well as preparing students for examinations I try to inspire them to enjoy and apply their subjects beyond the focus of exams. I strongly believe that learning should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone.

I understand how daunting it can be for parents and students to begin tuition so I am more than happy for parents to stay during my lessons. I can provide references and testimonials from my previous students and the schools I have worked for, as well as an enhanced CRB check. I am happy to set homework, mark examination papers and give detailed feedback, as well as organise additional lessons during examination periods.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed studying Theoretical Physics with Applied Maths in the University of Birmingham, and I would absolutely love tutoring (especially Maths!).

I am very patient and motivated - since I know that understanding some concepts can be daunting at GCSE and A-level.

Teaching Experience:

I do Physics and Maths tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to understand the student's position whilst approaching concepts in a logical manner at an appropriate pace. Provided I am informed in advance of the topic for an arranged lesson, I will give my time to prepare fully around it before the sessions. And/Or if there are any questions or past-paper help I will guide through the important facts through the paper.

In any case, more importantly, I believe the tutee him/herself should lead the sessions, if they are going to be effective, and this is why I will encourage you to think more independently but still supporting you. Normally in the sessions I would give explanations along with worked examples discussing with the tutee. In the midst I would make sure the student understands the core of the concept and the chain of thoughts is complete at each stage.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Aberdeen and before that I got an MChem in Chemistry. I also have extensive knowledge of Biology until A Level and Physics until GCSE. I currently work for an educational publisher working on international education books up to A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor in the past and I have tutored primarily university students (4 years experience) but I do have experience in tutoring school level students in all three sciences. I have successfully tutored students to grade A standard at A Level and GCSE, with one student gaining an A*.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to work commitments I have been away from tutoring for a while (around 4 years) but it is something that I wish to get back into as I found it very rewarding. During a previous role I was selected as a mentor for new graduate trainees which ignited my desire to become a tutor again.

I tend to structure the sessions depending on the needs to the individual. I am happy to simply go over a topic or come up with sample tests - I am totally flexible and will aim to cater for your requirements.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher and academic here to help with Philosophy, Religious Studies and general academic skills.

I can help you to become better at studying, to have greater confidence in your subject knowledge, to achieve higher grades in exams, and hopefully to enjoy the process as well!

My background is in Theology & Religion (PhD) and Education (postdoctoral research), and I am a published academic author. I am keen to pass on a love for - as well as the best skills in - studying, writing and all things philosophical.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Religious Studies and Philosophy at several independent colleges, as well as to private tutees, and have taught Theology at undergraduate level. I also teach the violin to adult learners.

A number of my former A-level students have achieved A* grades and have gone on to study at universities including Oxford, Durham and Bristol. Others have undertaken re-sit examinations and increased their marks by up to four grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly and encouraging approach to tuition. My aim to develop my students' confidence in their own abilities, and to enable each student to achieve the highest grades they can.

Areas on which we can focus include subject knowledge, exam technique, academic writing, revision skills, and time management. If there are other areas of your studies on which you would like to work then please do just ask!

Personal Description:
My name is George, I am twenty-three years old and am currently working as an auditor and trainee Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales at Deloitte LLP.

I studied French and Spanish at the Russell Group University of Southampton, where I achieved a 2:1 grade (missing a First-Class by 1%) when I graduated in June 2015. During my time at university I spent a year abroad in Alicante, Spain where I studied at the local university and became a fluent Spanish speaker. I have maintained that level of Spanish to date by working on Spanish-speaking clients operating in Latin America as part of my job.

My French ability has declined since university due to lack of practice, though I am still capable of helping with assignments up to A-level standard with tutees.

I have recently completed the Professional Level of examinations with the ICAEW, meaning I am "part-qualified" and have completed 12 out of the 15 exams necessary to qualify. I passed all units comfortably on the first attempt despite conflicting pressures from work and short time-frames allotted to me to study. I have both the exam credentials mentioned here and 18 months (current) experience working as an auditor, which allow me to tutor accounting to a high level.

I enjoy relaxing with my friends, eating out, exploring London (my family is from Manchester area), many kinds of music, videogaming and following the world of rowing. I am generally a relaxed kind of guy to be around, easy to get on with, and pride myself in my ability to "take things easy" and not get stressed.

Teaching Experience:

I have no official previous teaching experience as such, however when I understand something well I have no difficulty explaining it to others in a clear manner.

As a second-year graduate at work I am often tasked with explaining accounting concepts and testing approaches to the first-years, which I have been doing with success for six months.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and non-pressuried style of teaching, and will be able to help the student feel at ease. I do not have access to any teaching material unavailable to the public online, so would need the student to have papers/worksheets/textbooks etc from school for us to work on/go through together, or any problems they may be encountering in their minds for us to resolve.

I would not call myself an academic, but my methods have enabled me to reach a good degree-level standard with my languages and to complete my professional accountancy exams relatively comfortably, and I would be more than happy to help others find a way to overcome any issues they may have with their studies.

Personal Description:
I come from China. I was having postgraduate courses on finance and investment at the university of Nottingham. Now I have finished my courses, and I am staying in Birmingham. I am very patient and active. Chinese is my native language, so I am good at Mandarin.

Teaching Experience:

Although I have no teaching experience, I am good at Chinese. Furthermore, I know how to learn Mandarin effectively. I have a 8-year old nephew, so I know how to communicate with a child and take care of a child.

Tutoring Approach:

I can tutor by face to face or online. I will teach Mandarin from the basis or according to students' requirements.

Personal Description:
I have worked as a part time tutor for the past academic year and during my gap year. After passing the first year of an accelerated Graduate Entry Medicine course with Merit, I am looking forward to entering the clinical years of my degree. I also hold a Bsc in Biological Sciences from the University of Liverpool. Working as a healthcare assistant during my gap year presented me with the opportunity to improve both my listening and communication skills. I hope to not only improve a student's academic success but also their learning style and study skills

Teaching Experience:

PRIVATE TUITION FROM 2014
I regularly undertake work for Tavistock tutors, as well as taking on my own clients privately. My experience ranges from 11+ and 13+ prep to undergraduate Organic Chemistry tuition. I have also delivered lessons via Skype. I was pleased that one of my recent tutees achieved her goal of grade A at A level.
MEDICINE ENTRANCE COACHING FROM 2015
A large aspect of my role as a student ambassador for St George's University is advising students on how best to approach the medicine application process. This has included leading mock interviews giving individual feedback to over 30 international students, help writing personal statements and advice on getting the best work experience placements.

Tutoring Approach:

From my own experiences, I understand that school tuition can struggle to tap in to the different ways young people learn, which may mean that they do not reach their true potential. I adapt my teaching style depending on the individual tutee, and try and make the sessions as fun and interactive as possible. I encourage open discussion and focus on conceptual understanding of a subject above rote learning, as I feel this better prepares the tutee for further University education and work.

I currently work as a student ambassador at St George's University (I am reading graduate entry medicine). This role has given me contact with young people who have an interest in the sciences and healthcare, and I have enjoyed being able to teach subjects that I am truly passionate about. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to do this on a one-to-one basis and allows me to develop a relationship with a student over a longer period of time, and have a more lasting impact on their education.

Personal Description:
I have got Engineering degree qualification, which makes me the most appropriate tutor for mathematics subject. I have studied as well trained the simplest mathematics as well as complex one. So, I know the subject's concepts, ideas and problems inside out. I can discuss and introduce the rigor of real-life applications. I can make learning relevant to students' interests, thus create more students who actually care about what they are learning

Teaching Experience:

I have got a 10 years of teaching Experience. I have been teaching maths since at all Level since 10 years. Currently i have been teaching A-Level, year 4, KS-2 maths in UK.
I am very much aware of National Curriculum of UK and know about the key stages and the assessments, the student would go through after completing each key stage. I always prefer to discuss child's progress with his/her parents by the end of each assessment. That would assist me to meet the expectations of parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to build strong, personal relationships with students, because I believe personal relationship is foundation to student success. The more associated the student feels, the more teacher earns respect and consideration, the key ingredients for students to learn well. I teach to the student's strength that helps me to minimize the student weaknesses. I always listen and communicate early and often with parents, that helps me to map a better plan for success.
I always believe that, the better lesson planning by tutor leads to student success. I always plan my every session keeping these 6 points in my mind.
1. Outline learning objectives
2. Develop the introduction
3. Plan the specific learning activities (the main body of the lesson)
4. Plan to check for understanding
5. Develop a conclusion
6. Create a practical timeline

Personal Description:
I am a passionate teacher of English who specialises in GCSE and A Level teaching. As 2nd in department at my current school, I have an excellent knowledge of new exam specifications and skills required. I am enthusiastic, caring and understand that no two students learn in the same way - you can rest assured that lessons will be written specifically for the student to address their current needs. I have built excellent relationships with students and I thoroughly enjoy seeing students grow in confidence and ability.

Teaching Experience:

5 years at a secondary school in East Riding of Yorkshire. I have done private tutoring before and will cater to the individual student's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

On the first meeting I like to sit down with the student and get an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses in the subject, outlining how they like to learn and what strategies they have found work for them in the classroom. From here I will plan bespoke lessons to suit the exam board and the student's needs. I understand that some students will be reluctant to learn, so I try to make lessons as engaging as possible (linking topics to their individual interests wherever possible!) Marked work will be returned promptly to both students and guardians, with further opportunities to make improvements. When working towards examinations, I will provide exam practice material, which will be marked and reviewed.

Personal Description:
A graduate of Cambridge University and a father of two children, I am a Latin teacher in a Surrey preparatory school. Following closely the educational experiences of my children, I have a passion for teaching younger minds. I have a keen interest in how children have different methods of mastering subjects, using their own skills to progress, improve and attain examination goals.

Teaching Experience:

Currently a Latin teacher for school years 6 to 8, simultaneously teaching groups at all levels of ability up to Common Entrance.

Tutoring Approach:

The key to success is to understand where the student is starting from. By cementing what they already know, I then encourage them to gradually extend their knowledge so that they feel themselves to be making progress and they are then inspired by their own confidence.

Personal Description:
My name is Jake and I am currently a third-year law student studying at University. As I start my final year, graduation is fast approaching and I am on course to securing a 1st classification in my degree. Upon completion of my law degree I intend to embark upon the LLM Bar Professional Training Course where I shall obtain a masters degree in law as well as a post graduate diploma in bar practice rendering me eligible to be called to the bar as a qualified barrister.

I possess excellent written and verbal communication skills which I have honed through 4 years of court advocacy experience withing the advocacy society and law society. My ability to convey personal understanding and guidance has been measured and tempered through my time marshalling alongside HH Judge Peter Barrie at Shrewsbury Crown Court where I was involved in judicial case work and legal proceedings. Through the mini-pupillage, I completed at 187 Fleet Street Barristers Chambers in London where I worked alongside prosecution and defence barristers I supported the most vulnerable members of society through the justice system, where many had physical and mental disabilities. These skills have made me the ideal candidate to coach, support and mentor students of all ages and academic abilities including those with learning difficulties.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my studies, I have performed a number of tutoring/mentoring roles as a Student Ambassador, advisor for the Citizens Advice Bureau and as a legal advisor for the Legal Advice Clinic. My ambassadorial role contained an academic outreach programme where I was despatched to local schools and colleges to provide supplementary tutoring to students aged 14-18 and promote higher education prospects/diversity and encourage entry onto higher education courses.

Tutoring Approach:

When it comes to teaching, people learn in different ways and at different speeds and the best teachers recognise this and adapt to their student's needs. All too often this is overlooked in schools with classes of 30+ students and so those students who need the extra 1 on 1 support often get neglected. This additional supplementary education is exactly what I offer, where lessons are tailored to the students not dictated to the students. This ensures that the student gets the support they need in a calm and encouraging environment. As a student myself subject to rigorous examinations, I am able to empathise with my student's situations and provide them with the extra resources they need to excel and not levy the additional pressure that is often afforded to students within mainstream academic institutions.

In relation to subjects like English and Law, I stress student engagement through problem-based scenarios. This is important as it encourages students to not just learn the material but be able to apply it in an exam styled answer, this promotes understanding and mastery of the subject matter. I believe that homework and revision are important factors to learning, indeed they can be equally as important as the lesson itself. However, the key to effective revision is consistency where the emphasis is quality over quantity, 20 minutes each day can be far more effective that 5 hours in one sitting.

For history, my methods are slightly different as history exams and assessments are posed almost exclusively as essay questions as opposed to problem-based scenarios. To reflect this, I dedicate time to essay writing itself to make my students are comfortable with writing in an academic/scholastic fashion. This is important as bad essay structure can lower the mark attainment even if the quality of its content is up to scratch. In dealing the main body of a history syllabus, I find the best approach is chunking the module into smaller topics then layering knowledge gradually.

First and foremost studying is never easy but aside from top quality teaching I provide the reassuring environment that fosters excellence and ensures exam prowess without the stress.
