Personal Description:
I am an experienced primary school teacher and Headteacher with significant teaching expertise at KS1 and KS2. I am also a qualified SENCO and have vast experience in SEN. I am a Headteacher in an excellent local school and set high standards for all my pupils. I am able to offer tuition in English, Maths and Science at both key stages. I am based in Epping but can travel to you by negotiation. I can provide references on request from past and present clients who have achieved and continue to achieve success in their studies at all levels. I enjoy seeing my pupils make rapid progress and achieving academic success.

Teaching Experience:

I specialise in Entrance Examinations at 7+ and 11+, SEN and tuition for pupils who lack confidence and skills and need support to improve. I have vast experience teaching within excellent local schools and I am currently a Headteacher in a large Junior School. I teach children on a 1-2-1 basis to ensure that they receive the additional input that they need in order to achieve. I specialise in assisting children who lack confidence in specific areas and I am able to assist these children in improving their skill levels within their own school. I can provide excellent references on request from many happy pupils and parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and understanding tutor with the ability to communicate effectively with both adults and children. My aim is to ensure that pupils develop additional skills and increased confidence in their studies. I make my lessons fun and enjoyable for pupils so that they are able to enjoy learning and are keen to attend my tutoring sessions. I keep parents updated on their children's progress on a regular basis and encourage children to share worries about specific subject areas so that we can explore them together.

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

Personal Description:
My name is Becky and I am an experienced Primary School Teacher. I specialise in preparing students for both the 11+ entrance exams, helping children prepare for SAT's, and also give booster sessions for children who need extra support at any age during their primary years. I have experience working across the age range and am a confident, knowledgeable practitioner. I aim to provide individually tailored lessons that will help your child achieve their very best potential.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher with a 'first' class honours degree in Primary Education (BEd) as a mature student. I have since then been a subject coordinator for Gifted and Talented children, Art and Children in Care. I have taken every opportunity to keep myself up to date and enhance my subject knowledge of the Primary Curriculum, with regular and current training. I have two children who have both been successful in gaining places at Grammar Schools by taking and passing the 11+. I look forward to helping many more students achieve the same exam success.

Tutoring Approach:

For 11+ tutoring

I teach collaboratively with Chris, who is also listed on UK Tutors. We teach in a purpose built classroom, with access to an interactive whiteboard and other teaching tools. We jointly teach small groups with class sizes limited to a maximum of ten students. Students in a small group support each other and work together with a shared purpose and confidence. Having both an experienced Primary teacher, and an experienced Secondary teacher, will give your child a unique and highly effective session.

Chris is a knowledgeable Secondary School Teacher who specialised in Chemistry. He has had a successful career in both Independent Schools and Mainstream and was Head of Chemistry at Plymstock School for 10 years. He has now built on his success and become a, much sought after, self employed Professional Tutor. He not only is an academic tutor, but also is a Professional Drummer and offers drumming lessons in his purpose built studio. Chris has a fully enhanced CRB.

Weekly 60 minute sessions at £20, run from September until the end December. These are followed by 75 minute sessions, at £22.50 which run from January to the September exams. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

For SATs preparation and Booster sessions

I work with either small groups of children within the same year group, or with individual students. i can help your child with any aspect of the Primary Curriculum and also help guide and support you to help your child achieve their best. I am highly competent and trained in helping children with special educational needs.

Weekly 60 minute sessions in a group cost £20.00. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

Personal Description:
Im 18 Years old and have had over 11 years art experience, always drawing, being creative musically, achieiving an A* at art GCSE, scoring the highest possible mark out of the year. Whether your wanting to draw black and white (my forte), colouring, realism, to surrealism style, sketching, painting, inking, etc. I have done it all but as an artist you have to be quite versatile, and through this you'll find one style or way of drawing or expressing the you. As I have a passion for the Arts, I also took interest in Music Technology, which has allowed my visualistic skills to combine with audio and music. So I also teach music grades Abrsm (grade 3 below), and (drumming grades up to grade 5).

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience for arts comes from teaching friends for the past 2 years, helping with concepts and ideas, people doing GCSE's, A-level's, having many friends come to me for help and tips for A-level work. I have had enough experience to know what works and what doesn't, or is preferred. I hope to help you like I have with many of my friends and tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to learning will be asking you what you want /need to do, whether this is for GCSEs, A-level, or for other qualifications/hobbies. I will see what your strengths and weakness's are, and help you develop the areas your interested in. I will take a kind, but demanding approach so you get the best of out of each lesson/session. For qualifications I will help you also relate research ideas more methodically, and help you grow independently, and will promise to improve grades to high standard for your educational interests and reach qualification standards. I hope to help as much as possible. I will provide basic equipment, but you will need to bring own equipment, as you might have an idea what your more interested in more.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
