Personal Description:
I am currently working at the Transport Research Laboratory as a Researcher, having achieved my dream of becoming a Mechanical Engineer from the University of Surrey. I previously worked as a Manufacturing Engineer at Ford Motor Company. It has been an exciting time in the past 4 and a half years, in which I have become more innovative and gained a wide array of skills.

Main points to note about me are that I love to help and am enthusiastic about doing so. Teaching is something I thoroughly enjoy as it allows me to share the knowledge I have gained throughout my journey to entering and succeeding at what is now the 4th best university in the country. If you were to hire me, you can be assured that I will give my best effort in ensuring that my student not only improves/excels in his academic studies, but can acquire some insight or knowledge into what it would take to get into one of UK's best universities. Apart from this, I can provide career advice, opinions and assist in creating an excellent future for the student as I have had experience in interviewing, and undergoing the recruitment process, at massive multinational corporations and small companies alike.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught a number of students privately since October 2012 culminating in a role as a Teaching Assistant at Paddington Academy, alongside private tuition students. In this time, I have ensured my students had whatever they needed to excel in their studies. This includes support, flexibility, patience and proven teaching methods. This culminated in my students' grades showing improvement along with a greater understanding for the subjects I teach.

I also like to help my friends with understanding and grasping topics they do not understand and have done so in the past. No matter who I teach, I always ensure that they have a good understanding of the subject at hand and the ability to do well. Apart from this, I have worked as a student mentor which further improved my understanding of students from various backgrounds and enabled me to learn new approaches in communication. My success is shown by the positive feedback I have received from parents and students alike about the methods employed along with my general approach to lessons. Along with this, I have a history of improving the understanding and grades of the students under my tutelage.

Lastly, I ensure I provide a holistic view of education. As I have experience interviewing in massive corporate firms, undergoing their application process and have provided careers talks at my previous university, I am able to provide advice and recommendations alongside mentoring to help a student discover the method to achieving their dreams. I also provide them with the tools to do so. Simply put, I have assisted students in learning for the classroom and for the real world.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a friendly approach to tutoring. I try to establish a friendly relationship with the person I would teach. This, I feel, creates a nice atmosphere in which the student would enjoy to learn. I try to relate what I am teaching with practical and interesting examples. At the end of teaching a new topic, and whilst teaching too, I would assess the student to see where he/she stands. The key here is to ENSURE that the student understands what he/she is doing as this is essential to successful results. In order to achieve this, I employ a lot of patience and switch up teaching styles based on the student's needs.

As exams approach, I assess the student using past papers to ensure he/she has the best of chance of passing the exams with good results. Apart from this, I also assist the student by teaching him/her improved note taking techniques, summarising techniques and other useful information to enable the student to use this knowledge throughout his/her education such as A Levels, school, university, etc. I provide homeworks and help summarise notes into easily digestible briefs to refer to just before tests or exams. I am generally strict with marking the aforementioned exams/homeworks and pay attention to particular details as this helps my student in terms of achieving better marks. Passing is always a priority but in my opinion a pass is not enough. I would try to ensure my student gets good marks and not just a pass, i.e. an A, as it is my firm belief that with my help, this is possible for any student I teach.

I inspire my student to not only become better in their studies, but become the best version of him or herself so as to have the correct attitude and ability to achieve their dreams. I show them the big picture and paint an image of the success that awaits them through hard work.

One key point which sets me apart from all the other tutors is that I have first hand knowledge in what it takes to enter a good university along with career advice. This is due to the various number of companies I have previously interviewed it or undertaken the recruitment process for. I also ensure I provide dedication to the job and give everything I have to help improve my student's chances of success. All in all, I provide a holistic approach to my tutoring and ensure the student's needs always comes first.

Personal Description:
I began my combat training at thirteen at a local boxing club in Llanelli, learning the vital skills and discipline that have kept me working in the fitness and self-defence field for over ten years.

At the age of fifteen I joined the Cobra-Kai Freestyle Kickboxing Federation, and trained religiously under the regime of instructor Lee Martin (4th degree black belt). In 1997 I went on to win the European martial arts title (WUMA Federation), held at Cheltenham. On my return, and after numerous local newspaper photos and write-ups, I received the greatest honour any keen young martial artist dreams of: becoming a fully-fledged black belt.

Teaching Experience:

At the young age of 18, I opened my very own kickboxing club at Llanelli Leisure Centre, for all levels and ages. After showcasing my skills, not only as a martial artist but also a teacher, I received my 2nd degree black belt. Starting with just one weekly ninety-minute class, I now run four classes per week. Over the years I have helped created more than ten black belt students, two welsh champions and one British champion.

In 1997, I ran my first all women's self-defence class, training women of all ages and physical abilities. I continued my classes, eventually including mixed gender and young persons training.

After undergoing a series of courses from Securicare, Frontline, Venue security and BIIAB City and Guilds, I have become a Level 7 Conflict Management Trainer. I have worked alongside various organisations such as the NHS, covering the majority of hospitals and clinics throughout Carmarthenshire.

As well as training, I have since achieved my 4th degree black belt, opened my own one-to-one gym, and become an advanced level 3 personal trainer through Fitness Wales (REPs certified), teaching private lessons of fitness, weight training, martial arts, self-defence, Pilates, and much more.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching has been a big part of my life from a very young age. It has given me great pleasure and accomplishment. At times I have found it difficult, but at the same time rewarding. I have always given it 100% and believe that to be a good teacher you must be able to learn from the positives and even the negatives.

  • Self Defense
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£25 p.h.)

  • GCSE or Standards (£25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have spent many years accumulating a wide range of academic qualifications, and my work has often primarily consisted of passing on my knowledge to others in a form they can understand. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people to understand something they thought was beyond them. By virtue of having studied several subjects at a high level, I empathise with the feeling of finding something difficult, and have the patience and technique to get past this. I am not a single-subject specialist who might find it difficult to understand why others struggle in their area of expertise.
For students who are preparing for exams, my knowledge of examination technique, and an empathy with the marker, should be invaluable. I always keep in mind the importance of the student's goals, but never take myself too seriously.

Teaching Experience:

My whole career has been geared towards some form of teaching. I have trained groups of adults and children, as well as individuals, in elements of mathematics, psychology, actuarial science, pensions, and even tennis! Recently I tutored my 14 year-old son (who attends a sports academy, not a mainstream school) in three IGCSEs, for which he obtained excellent grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I look at what is important for the student. I emphasise clear, logical ways of working, and clear presentation. I make sure that they realise that they not only need to understand why they are doing something, but they must also be able to explain it clearly. Explaining a difficult concept to someone else can often be the best way to make yourself remember it. I am calm and patient, and English is my first language, all of which can help when a student finds something tricky.

I am consistently available for tutoring during weekday daytimes. I will sometimes be available in the evenings and at weekends, but this will be by arrangement and should not be relied upon.

Personal Description:
I am a caring, creative and highly committed secondary school English teacher with over five years experience in teaching. I teach English Literature and English Language from KS3 to A Level. I have the ability to integrate humour, imagination and effective use of ICT to encourage a positive learning culture. I aim to inspire excellence in each and every pupil that I work with.

Teaching Experience:

August 2008 - June 2009: Rosshall Academy.
August 2012 - February 2013: Lagan College.
August 2013 - December 2013: Sperrin College.
January 2014 - June 2014: Campbell College.

August 2015- February 2016: Belfast Royal Academy.
February 2016 - July 2016: Carrickfergus Grammar.
August 2016 - present: Strathearn School, Belfast.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create a deep understanding and confidence in tackling exam questions. I firmly believe that it is essential to be comfortable with the basics of spelling, vocabulary, punctuation and structure before attempting more challenging aspects such as the analysis of linguistic features. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. My teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start with topics the students are comfortable with and move, gradually, towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and homework to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as stress management and logical thinking techniques. Where appropriate, I set and mark work and give students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.

Personal Description:
I am a multi-instrumentalist originally from the Scottish Borders, playing flute, whistles and clarinet.
I specialise in folk and traditional music, mainly playing Scottish, Irish, Manx, Northumbrian and Breton. I studied at Newcastle University on the Folk and Traditional Music degree and gained a 2.1 overall grade with a 1st in performance in 2013. As well as working for Live Music Now, teaching privately and teaching at the Sage Gateshead I perform in a few different bands.

Projects and Employment

Performer and workshop leader for Live Music Now
As a music leader on the Live Music Now scheme, I have extensive experience of performing and delivering workshops to those who may not have regular access to live music. Audiences include children with special educational needs, adults with learning disabilities, children in hospitals and elderly people living in sheltered accommodation. Due to the diverse range of audiences and performance settings my partner and I have to be very flexible and always ready to tailor our performance accordingly.

The Sage Gateshead, Adult learning, Ensemble leader for two
bands within the Folkworks Tuesday program.
I write, arrange and teach music to the Beginner and Intermediate Bands at Folkworks Tuesdays.These sessions are taught using a combination of learning by ear and reading notation.

Private Music Teacher.
I give one to one lessons to adults and children of any ability and consequently my teaching style is very flexible.

Performer and recording artist in various bands.

Freya Rae & Louis Bingham
A quote from our website:
Freya Rae & Louis Bingham's music is varied, colourful and enthralling. They are a young duo who play a mixture of traditional tunes and modern compositions, drawing particularly on strong influences from Ireland and Brittany. On stage their unique and engaging performance dynamic communicates to audiences their love and sensitivity for the tradition, whilst presenting their own innovative compositions with virtuosity
and creative flair. Multi-instrumentalists, Freya's whistles, flute and clarinet blend seamlessly with Louis' guitars, cittern and bouzouki. They have recently released their debut album Curlicue, a recording which has garnered significant critical acclaim.
"Beautifully arranged and played with an entirely convincing sensibility... this is exquisite musicianship' The Living Tradition

Birlinn Jiarg
Birlinn Jiarg was brought together by multi-instrumentalist Beccy Hurst to perform the traditional Manx music she grew up with as well as her own compositions. Having performed with various Manx bands and dance teams over the years, Beccy moved to England to study on the Folk Degree at Newcastle University.
At the centre of Birlinn Jiarg's sound is the combination of Beccy's whistle and concertina playing and the clarinet and flute of Freya Rae (Freya Rae and Louis Bingham, Tom Kitching Band). The unusual combination of low whistle and clarinet was what originally inspired the band's formation and sets Birlinn Jiarg's sound apart from more traditional line-ups. Having performed in a duo with Beccy for a few years, Scottish guitarist and bouzouki player Alasdair Paul ( Pons Aelius , Kimber/Paul) was a natural choice for Birlinn Jiarg. Completing the quartet's line-up is bodhránist Callum Younger (Pons Aelius, Trio FCT). Callum and Alasdair have
worked together on a variety of projects and their inventive and powerful accompaniment provides a great platform for Beccy's and Freya's melodic interplay.

Tom Kitching Band
I play flute and clarinet in Tom's band. We have completed two tours around England and are planning more in 2016.
"Interloper is challenging, dexterous and above all, thought-provoking" EFDSS Spring 2015

Simo Lagnawi (The Gnawa Berber)

I am a guest musician on Simo's album (Track 9, Sma) and I became really interested in improvisation during this project as it is a very important part of the Gnawa tradition. I improvise throughout the track and found it really beneficial for my playing and composition skills.

Teaching Experience:
Currently I teach a wide range of people from children as young as 6 to groups of adults at The Sage Gateshead, I am also a performer and workshop leader for Live Music Now

Personal Description:
Studied Physics at the University of Southampton, after having studied it along with Maths, Music, Geography and Critical Thinking at A Level. I achieved A grades at A-level in Maths and Physics, and grades A* to A for the same courses at GCSE level. I'm a creative person and live a lot to do with music and love to learn new things and to help other people learn, because i know i was once at that stage.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students ranging from 15 to 18 years of age in Physics and Maths before.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have a relaxed style of tutoring. Figure out how you learn best, be it through simply working through the knowledge or imagining it vividly in your mind. We would work through some questions and figure out where areas can be improved and i'll help you improve in those areas and overall. I like to be always contactable, so i can be emailed, texted, called, skyped, facebooked, anything, communication is pretty key. At the end of the day I'd like to help you improve to the level you want to achieve.

Personal Description:
I am a multilingual ex-City consultant with degrees in Physics and Environmental Economics.
I tutor Maths, Physics, Science and languages (French, German, Spanish, Latin). I am a very patient tutor who understands very well the challenges of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have one-to-one experience in tutoring Maths, Physics, French and Latin. Most of my experience is from my engagement with a south London initiative called GCSE success.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient tutor who values getting the 'basics right' before building on that knowledge. I am very flexible and adaptable depending on the pupil's aptitude and interest in the subject. I tend to use visual aids for Maths and Physics tutoring with very positive results. For languages I also use teaching and memory methods in order to help the pupil progress rapidly with visible results.

Personal Description:
I am a French national who has lived in England for more than 25 years. I am passionate about languages and how we learn them and the impact this learning has on our ability to study/think better. So many transferable skills!

My other interests are unsurprisingly travelling and reading. My second love is teaching Yoga, relaxation and meditation.

Learning is definitely a life long experience.

Teaching Experience:

PGCE qualified to teach French and English as a Second/Foreign language with 25 years teaching experience mainly in Secondary Schools: KS3, KS4 and KS5 and one-to-one tutoring in French and Spanish.

Also Adult Education tutoring both in Spanish and French and mentoring tutors.

I have also run my own primary school groups teaching French and worked as primary school liaison for teaching languages in primary schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed but organized and effective. Learning is fun especially when successful. Progress brings success. We all have different ways of learning, different "intelligence" once met there is no real limit to what we can achieve.

As a tutor, I will devise and teach a program that is effective for you and your preferred learning style(s) and your requirement(s) whether learning for pleasure, business, exams etc or a mixture of all of these and more.

Personal Description:
Highly experienced tutor, currently completing my PhD in chemistry at Imperial College London.

With an enthusiastic approach to learning and a real passion for my subject I develop students into inquisitive, capable learners and consider mentoring students in a love of science to be an important goal.

I achieved the highest grade possible in all science and maths subjects during my school education and having completed my Masters in Chemistry at Oxford in 2011 I have also worked in various roles in industry and academia, allowing me to convey the real significance of science to the students who study with me.

A & A/S-Levels : 4As (2007)
GCSEs : 9A*s, 2As (2005)

Teaching Experience:

Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

I have over three years experience, teaching over 100 students from secondary up to undergraduate level. I am a professionally trained undergraduate tutor and laboratory demonstrator, recently awarded an Associate Fellowship of the HEA in recognition of my contribution to undergraduate learning and my continuing development as an educational practitioner.

As a result of my teaching programme at Imperial College, I was awarded a Student Academic Choice Award - chosen by the students - for excellence in chemistry tutoring and communication.

Alongside my direct tutoring experience I have also taken part in the assessment and development of teaching material in chemistry and in the interview process at Imperial College, allowing me to offer targeted advice for students who wish to excel. Having attended both Oxford and Imperial College I can offer highly relevant admissions advice for university entrance interviews at Oxbridge and London-based institutions.

Working with students from across the world, I have experience of tutoring students whose first language is not English and am familiar with dealing with any issues that arise from this.

Some reviews of my work:

"My teaching experience with Peter has been really positive, he really challenges me to achieve my best and I have particularly developed my critical thinking skills with him" (A-level student)

"Peter is really friendly and helpful, as an international student who has studied in several countries I can say his methods are very strong and he explains complicated topics very well" (A-level student)

"I struggled with several areas of my course before studying with Peter, but now things are so much easier! He can explain things in so many ways when I'm stuck, highly recommended" (GCSE student)

"Peter is one of the best tutors we have had and is always on time and prepared, he is obviously very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches" (Parent of GCSE student)

"My daughter had lessons with Peter for several months and her confidence in the subject increased hugely over this time, I would strongly recommend his services, the improved exam results speak for themselves" (Parent of A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

Having taught scientific subjects up to undergraduate level I have a keen understanding of the different learning styles of students and am able to adapt my teaching to suit the student.

Using various teaching methodologies to deepen understanding, wherever possible I like to employ additional techniques such as scientific software and interactive elements alongside theory in order to bring the subject to life.

Students who study with me are encouraged and supported in developing critical thinking skills, by analysing information more deeply, allowing them to become more efficient, resourceful learners in the future.

I have two main approaches for the students I teach:
For students struggling in a subject I aim to build up confidence in the area by ensuring lessons are relaxed and engaging rather than focused on specific topics. Once a student has become more comfortable in the subject, more targeted study can take place based on the syllabus.
For students who are competent in their subject but need additional support to excel, I take a more focused approach and work with the student on any weak points and advanced topics, supported by exam technique and practice questions.
In both cases I aim to broaden the knowledge of the student beyond specific subject guidelines, with the goal of developing a passion for their subject.

Personal Description:
I'm a native Chinese (Mandarin) speaker. I got my Bachelor's degree in Beijing, the capital city of China. I'm familiar with both northern and southern dialects, as I was born in the southern part of China but have been living in the northern part for years. I'm a MSc student at University of Edinburgh, majoring in artificial intelligence. I'm willing to share you the state of the art in this subject. I love travelling and fitness. Hoping to tutor someone who share the same interets with me.

Teaching Experience:

I was a voluteer during the summer vacation in 2013, teaching junior and senior middle school students from rural area in China. I was responsibile for the language courses, Chinses and English. For the Chinese subject, I taught both ancient Chinese and modern Chinese.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer laerning through practice. The best way to learn a language is to keep talking in that language.
I will chat with you on topics you are interested in.
I can also assist with writing, reading and grammatical exercises upon request.
If you are interested in ancient Chinese language and culture, I can also provide you with guidance and teach what you want to know.

Personal Description:
I´m a German chemist and biochemist with many practical experiences in analytical as in applied chemistry. From 1990 to 2000 I led the first government accredited private laboratory for environmental chemistry in Leipzig, Eastern Germany. Later I was working as a consultant and surveyor for projects of microbiological soil remediation and drinking water treatment. Over 20 years I was active in R&D of technical processes and devices for water purification by new chemical and biochemical methods. This packed knowledge of theory and practise is the base of all my lessons I can give to my students. On different institutes I taught prospective physicians, pharmacy and chemical technicians for respective graduation. So I was also a private lecturer at the Biochemical Department of the Leipzig University and some different professional educational institutes for some while.
Science needs freedom of thinking and speech. Unfortunately the political development of Germany lead more and more to a totalitarian society. That´s why currently I´m looking for a new homeland in Wales and give all my knowledge to open-minded and inquisitive students. By the way since 2009 I´m the director of two british companies for selling natural remedies on the one hand and helping expats on the other hand.

Teaching Experience:

1981 - 1986 Medical Institute, Biochemical Department, University of Leipzig, Germany
1990 - 2005 Thesis Adviser for 5 graduants
since 2002 Private Lecturer on different professional education instituts for adult education (retraining, masters, technicians)

Tutoring Approach:

Every person is unique. Nobody is talentless. You can reach everything what you really want by individual training by adjusted learning tempo according to your understanding . I can help you with my whole experience and with my knowledge. I modernly think and I am an advocate of the lifelong learning. Carpe diem. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

I will use GoToMeeting for my lessons.
