Personal Description:
As a school student, I was a confirmed hater of Science! I am still haunted by the drafty labs and memories of sitting in silence on wobbly stools taking notes from ancient text books and carrying out odd practicals with the ubiquitous Potato tuber. It wasn't until I started studying Science as an adult learner in an FE college, where I was taught by inspiring and enthusiastic lecturers, who illustrated important concepts with analogies, diagrams and genuinely interesting practicals, that I began to realise that science was relevant to me and was "my thing".

This experience has stayed with me and has given me a passion for making science exciting and largely the reason that I chose a career in personal tutoring.

I am a professional full-time private tutor. I have recently graduated with an MSc in Science (Medicinal Chemistry and science education studies). I have also graduated with a First class honours degree in Life Sciences (Open) and I have completed a Post-graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education, specialising in Science Education.

Teaching Experience:

I specialised in A level and GCSE tuition and I have extensive experience working with a wide range of students, from those who are struggling and need help understanding the key concepts to those who do well in science but need support to develop the exam technique that will get them the top grades.

I have tutored students working towards exams with all the major exam boards, including AQA (AS, A2 Biology and Chemistry, GCSE core science, GCSE Additional Science, GCSE Biology and Chemistry), OCR (AS, A2 Biology and Chemistry, Salter's Chemistry, 21st Century Science GCSE), WJEC (A level Biology), EDEXCEL (AS and A2 Biology and Chemistry, GCSE, IGCSE)


I also have much experience working with students entering for exams as external candidates and I can provide assistance in making arrangements for this.

In my professional life prior to tuition, I was employed as a company trainer in the catering industry, working with newly employed staff on an individual basis to help them develop the skills and knowledge relevant to their new positions and training existing staff to take on more senior roles. This gave me extensive experience of one-to-one tuition and creating individual training strategies.

Tutoring Approach:

When I begin tutoring a new student, I spend some time getting to know the individual and we begin by discussing their current feelings about Science and what they would like to get out of the tutorial sessions. I also carry out an assessment of the individual's learning style (sounds scary, but it's not, it's just a short quiz). By discovering how the individual learns best, I can structure the tutorials so that they are composed of activities that will be both effective and enjoyable. In all cases, I endeavor to make Science enjoyable and relevant to the individual student as possible and tailor the explanations to their particular interests.

As well as providing subject-specific tuition, I place particular emphasis on the development of study and exam skills. Where relevant, this includes teaching essay writing skills, how to revise, how to approach exams and specific scientific skills, such as data analysis and evaluation, which are often assessed in course work. I also offer tutorial sessions which focus just on study skills, for those who are comfortable with their subject knowledge but need extra support in these areas.

As well as traditional face to face sessions, I also offer fully online lessons using skype and an interactive whiteboard which allows me to interact with students in the same way as in a face-to-face lesson. If you are interested in online tuition but are not sure how it would work please contact me to discuss.

Personal Description:
Recently graduated from the University of Oxford with First Class Honours in Economics and Management. I won a Scholarship to Eton College when I was ten years old and won another three years later. After getting straight A*'s at GSCE, I went on to study Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Economics and Physics at AS level. Again, after attaining the highest grades at AS, I was advised to drop Chemistry and went on to complete my A levels (A*A*AA). Currently I am studying Economics and Management at Oxford University - final year.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped teach primary school children before at Eton Wick First School. Other experience I have includes a tutee I helped last year with AS level maths and writing AS maths notes for a firm so that they could make tutoring videos online.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to approach tutoring by adapting to the tutee's needs. I always ask what is needed to be covered for their understanding and so it would be up to any tutee to know what they struggle on. If they do not know, I like to test their knowledge of the syllabus and filling in any gaps. When I go through a topic, I do often go through it in detail so that the tutee can not only answer questions, but also understand what they are doing. (I find that the problem with Maths is that some students can get the answer, without understanding what they have done.)

Personal Description:
After finishing my A level in Weymouth, Dorset, I then went to Essex University in Colchester to study Science. Ater getting my first degree, I then decided to do a masters Degree in Chemistry and passed. In my University days, I have always loved Maths and Science and in my first year at University, I did Physics, Chemistry and Maths. I have a very high understanding of Maths because of my passion for Maths and I have solve several problems in Maths, Physics and Chemistry up to A level. I am very passionate about numbers and anything that has numbers in it, I will solve. My chemical knowledge is absolutely unbelievable. I have been taeching Chemistry and Maths longer than A level Physics but I teach A level Physics in my current School. If you really want to be tutored by someone who understand and know how to teach, then, contact me and I will get you the best possible grade in Physics, Chemistry and Maths.

Teaching Experience:

I actually started teaching as soon as I left University in 1993. In those days, I did not have teaching qualification. I then decided to get some experience outside education. After gaining experience in Industries, I decided to get back into teaching and took my teaching qualification. I am now a fully qualified teacher and then started teaching again in September 2007. My strength in teaching has always been on a one to one basis. I do teach in a Grammar School at the moment but I always prefer to teach on a one to one basis because I enjoy helping individual student's as each student's requirement is different and you can't properly help individual student's in a class of 30 students. I am very passionate about teaching and devote a lot of my time teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is quite unique. Being a school teacher myself, I now understand why it is so difficult for students to understand the subjects that I teach. I do not believe in pressurising students to learn. I prefer a much more relaxed atmosphere whereby the students needs and requirement is the absolute paramount. Style of teaching is also important and how you come across to the students is also very important. Investing into new ways and new ideas in order to aid students understanding is also very important. When you come to me for tutoring, I will not move unto another topic until I am fully satisfied that you have understood the topic that we are doing at the moment and that you can answer questions on those topics that we have done comfortable and confidently.

Personal Description:
I'm a young professional working in Canary Wharf for Level39, European largest technology accelerator for start-ups.

I hold an MSc in Theoretical Physics from King's College London and a BSc from Amsterdam University College, where I studied Physics and Mathematics as core subjects, and Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology and Logic as a minor.

In the past, I used to be a professional waterpolo player and I'm now an active ultracycler and triathlete.

Due to my interdisciplinary background, I believe in pro-active learning and teaching.
My goal is to make students passionate about what they need to study and to educate them about the beauty and importance of learning and of curiosity, showing them the freedom that comes from unlocking and mastering a piece of knowledge.

To do so, I always try to guide my students so that they independently come to the solution of a problem with their own but guided reasoning.

Teaching Experience:

I have acquired tutor experience with students of an age between 10 and 14 years old. I taught them Mathematics and some of the first concepts of Physics.

Tutoring Approach:

Subjects like Mathematics and Physics require a deep level of understanding and intution. Contrarily to the popular view, intuition is something that can be taught and trained. Having this as frame of reference, I first try to guide students through the most fundamental concepts of the subject in consideration, giving them tools to think appropriately and experiment the idea, the logic behind it. I want students to understand what they are computing and why they are doing it that way; this is far more empowering and long-lasting than merely learning to compute something.

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

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Latin Greek and Classical Civilisation for 10 years at an independent school in Essex. I have also taught IT, Theory of Knowledge for IB and critical thinking for the past 13 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a student focused tutor and make the subject fun for the person studying so that lessons are conducted in a relaxed and informal manner. I am flexible in my approach and take into consideration the student's learning style so that progress can be made in the shortest possible time.

Personal Description:
I am a chemistry teacher that has taught in a range of classroom environments. I have taught classes of 30 students and also taught students one to one in a classroom. I have experience teaching all the science subjects and will be able to enhance your studies no matter what curriculum you are using.

Skills test: I have passed and completed my skills tests for maths and literature this is required by all teachers.
 
Chemistry certificate: I have a chemistry certificate for subject knowledge enhancement from Canterbury Christ Church University, for A-Level chemistry.

University degrees: I have two degrees, one for my bachelors in integrated science. My second is a PGCE chemistry 11-18 degree for teaching. These were achieved at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Although not every private lesson can have an experiment. I do believe that even though the lessons are outside of a lab, there are still chances to learn from small experiments. I see this as a great opportunity for the students to see what they are learning. Students will also be able to put knowledge to practice, safely.

I have experience teaching all the science subjects and will be able to enhance your studies no matter what curriculum you are using.

I have a lot of availability and I will work around what the student requires. I also work weekends and school holidays.

Tutoring Approach:

One thing that is extremely clear when working in a school, is that all students learn differently.
Everybody is a genius. But If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid ("Albert Einstein"). These are the lines I work from as a teacher and truly bespoke my lessons to the students I am teaching. The reason for this is to get the best possible outcome for the lesson and the student.

Personal Description:
I am a biological researcher at UCL with experience of teaching at various levels from early secondary to university standards. My career choice intersects my interest in the sciences and teaching as I am regularly required to mentor new employees. I have a calm demeanor and friendly attitude with a range of interests both academic and creative allowing me to approach and solve problems from various angles.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at various levels from secondary school entrance exams up to and including university level mathematics and chemistry. These have been in the majority on a one-to-one basis and occasionally in small groups of two and three.

Tutoring Approach:

My usual approach starts with discussing the general areas with which the student requires help and proceeding to identify key problems that require focus to increase core understanding. Teaching would proceed with breaking down the problem and explaining the process step by step. Explanation can be particularly adapted to suit the style of learning that best aids the student.
Following comprehension, the core knowledge would be reinforced through example problems both set by myself and from exams to increase the student's confidence. Formatting of answers would be additionally discussed and practiced to maximize exam effectiveness.
Short, topical homework may occasionally be set to further reinforce learning and enable the student to self-identify further areas of weakness that can be discussed and remedied thus guiding in-depth tailored teaching.
Sessions can be adapted to focus on core knowledge or exam technique as per the student's requirements.
I am passionate about sciences and believe that anyone willing to learn will make progress once they have found their core confidence and learning styles, success breeds success.

Personal Description:
Thanks for viewing my profile. I'm Jade, a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. I have language and teaching qualifications from China and the UK; and have more than 12 years experience of language teaching in both countries. I can provide patient tuition for learners of all age groups, from complete beginners, to experienced Mandarin speakers.

I love teaching, and use a range of learning materials, and approaches. I should be able to develop solutions to problems and find the way that works best for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have provided tuition in Mandarin Chinese to many native English speakers since I moved to the UK in 2014. My learners have been mostly adults and from various backgrounds, but also children and teenagers. They have included those learning for professional or academic reasons, and those simply interested in Chinese language and culture. Several have been having regular weekly or twice-weekly lessons with me for more than a year.
I have gained experience of the British educational system and teaching methods through acting as a volunteer teaching assistant in a college with modern language expertise. I have also studied for an Education and Training Award. Insights gained from this inform the approaches to teaching that I adopt.
In China, I worked at two language training schools in Harbin over a three-year period, and then I moved to Beijing. Here I taught children and teenagers for a year, and then for the next five years worked in a company that provided language training and IESOL tests to adults. I am now able to draw from my teaching experience in both countries when providing tuition in Mandarin.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my teaching to satisfy the individual needs of learners. This involves taking account of their reasons for learning Mandarin and their aspirations, and the learning styles that work best for them. Rather than stick rigidly to a standard course, I will vary the approaches to maintain interest and help with the learning process. Techniques can include question and answer sessions, use of flashcards, role-play, games, presentations, audio-visual materials and handouts.
If you are interested in learning Chinese, please contact me.

Q. How long do lessons last?

A. Each lesson lasts for one hour, for one and a half hours, or for two hours. For children under 10 years old, each lesson will last 45 minutes.

Q. Where do you teach?

A. I teach from home or via Skype.

Q. How do I pay the tuition?

A. Please pay by cash in advance. There will be a small discount if you pay for several lessons at once (more than five hours).

Q. Do you cater for advanced students?

A. Yes. If you speak Mandarin already and would like to brush up your skills, or gain a more advanced understanding, then I can design a course appropriate for you.

Q. Is it possible to book sessions outside of office hours?

A. Yes. Please contact me to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Q. Do you provide group-training sessions?

A. Yes. Please call for details.

Q. Do you teach online?

A. Yes. I also teach via Skype, QQ, WeChat.

Q. Do you provide telephone based training?

A. Yes. Please contact for details.

I specialise in: improving literacy and academic writing skills, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and English as a Second Language (ESL), preparing for IELTS testing, coaching for exams/interviews and supporting students with special educational needs.

I have a History BA from Bristol University (First, 2008) and an Africa/Asia History MA from SOAS (Merit, 2011). For my MA I specialised in Chinese history. I am also a qualified Archivist (PG-Cert., 2:1, Dundee University, 2015).

I am passionate about history, languages, and arts. At school I studied Welsh, French and German and I have been learning Mandarin since 2010. I understand what it is like to study another language!

I have just moved to Leeds from Taiwan (May 2017) where I was a TEFL teacher and private English tutor.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching background spans 13 years. As a teaching assistant in mainstream schools (London and Bristol) I taught students with specific educational needs, such as ESL or dyslexia.
I have taught in residential schools for students with complex difficulties, including severe autism or Down's Syndrome.
I have mentored students with poor literacy skills and a background of truancy in order to build their confidence and motivate them to enjoy learning.

As a TEFL teacher I have taught English to children (3-18 years) and adults in India, China and Taiwan. I have taught one-to-one classes, and classes with between 2-25 students.
In Taiwan and China I privately tutored preparatory skills for IELTS (an international English proficiency test), business English and academic writing skills (e.g. dissertation and thesis writing). I coached one undergraduate preparing to study an MA in English Literature in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

As a child my family moved a lot and I went to many types of schools: state, private, bilingual, Steiner, Montessori, single sex and co-educational, so I am familiar with different teaching styles.

I work hard to enable my students to reach their learning goals and feel motivated to continue learning. I quickly find out each individual's learning needs, likes and dislikes so they will feel comfortable in our lessons and inspired to progress.

I am very flexible and willing to tailor our lessons to my students' preferred learning methods: I am able to adjust the structure, level and content of our lessons.

I inspire my students to believe in themselves and push themselves forward whatever their pace.
