Personal Description:
I am a professional, dedicated and enthusiastic tutor with over 20 years experience, extremely quick at identifying student problem areas and devising the most efficient solutions, sometimes with budget or time constraints. Where necessary I focus on exam technique as I find many capable and knowledgeable students gain confidence (and marks!) once these skills are taught.

I am well-liked by my tutees who understand I want the very best outcome for them, and also that I appreciate they are under pressure to succeed, and my services are frequently recommended to siblings and friends.

Teaching Experience:

As well as many years continuous home-tutoring experience, I have taught in both state and private sectors since 1986; examples being Surrey College (Guildford), Horsell High School (Woking) and Farnborough College of Technology, and as recently as April 2013, the prestigious Seaford College in Petworth, W.Sussex.

I have a vast library of past examination papers in all my subjects at GCSE and GCE A level for Edexcel, AQA and OCR examining boards.

In addition I have some experience tutoring both common entrance and Baccalaureate Maths, Physics and Chemistry.

Tutoring Approach:

I appreciate that for most tutees private tuition represents a workload additional to both schoolwork and homework.

Therefore I aim to make tuition as interesting, interactive and productive as possible- whilst focusing on their objectives- usually a target examination grade. Experience has shown that students can expect learning progress with an experienced tutor such as myself to be without exaggeration, 2-4 times faster than could be made in a typical school classroom, whilst simultaneously gaining a fuller understanding of the topics covered.

Personal Description:
I have a first-class honours degree in History and a master's degree in American Studies (History). During my master's, I specialised in vernacular history, particularly the social, ideological and political significance of post-9/11 Islamic hip-hop.

I am a freelance marketing consultant, with a focus on content and copywriting, working in the tech, property, psychological wellbeing, HR and social development sectors. I am currently away travelling so I can only provide online tuition. I love to read, write, paint and travel.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 8 years' tuition experience, having initially worked as a peer History tutor at Bridgewater State University (USA) in 2008 followed by working as a GCSE English tutor for the Tutor Trust in 2011-12. I have been tutoring privately since 2009.

At the Tutor Trust I delivered small group tuition sessions and taught large group revision classes in Manchester's disadvantaged schools and colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

TUITION
I take a structured approach to tutoring and develop a clear plan with objectives for the student and I to reach together. I work at the student's own pace and provide bespoke tuition which is tailored to the student's needs and learning style. My sessions are clear, engaging and stimulating.

My tutoring style is to facilitate rather than teach. I guide the student in the right direction and provide additional support to help with study skills, time management and organisation skills. Ultimately, I encourage the student to build more confidence in his/her own ability.

PROOFREADING & THESIS SUPPORT
I provide proofreading services for undergraduate and postgraduate coursework. I check grammar and spelling to an excellent standard and offer in-depth feedback on analysis/argument, structure, knowledge/understanding, sources and referencing, and style and presentation to help students to achieve the grade they are aiming for.

Personal Description:
I recently stepped down as Head of German at the secondary school in Kidderminster, where I have led the German Department since 1995. I now work as a German classroom teacher. My decision to step down was based on the fact that I got married in July last year and now have to travel a considerable distance to my school. During my time as Head of Department, the results at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A2 have improved considerably. The pass rate for GCSE German has been approximately 80% for several years. This is higher than the national average and was based on 3 years of study to GCSE. Many pupils achieve top A*, A and B grades. The pass rate at AS and A2 has also been excellent with pupils achieving As, Bs and Cs. Former pupils have gone on to study languages at top-ranking universities and some have returned to the school in a teaching capacity for Modern Languages.

I have also worked as a tutor in Further Education teaching adults from aged 20 - 80 years from beginner's up to GCSE type work.

I am have friends in Germany and visit on a regular basis and keep up to date with new teaching ideas via the MFL Resources Forum.

I am interested in using a range of teaching strategies and personalising learning to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my classroom.

Exchanges and visits to Germany have been given prominence during my time as Head of Department.

I qualified as a teacher in my 30s following a successful career in industry as a PA and Company Translator for a German machine tool company. I have lived in Germany for a year on two different occasions. At both times, I worked for a German employer.

Teaching Experience:

Beginners' German (Key stage 3 and adults)
GCSE German
AS German
A2 German

I have experience as an oral examiner at GCSE, AS and A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be interested in understanding what the tutee required, using relevant materials and developing teaching strategies tailor-made to suit my tutee's needs.

I currently use a range of teaching strategies and personalise learning in my school classroom to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my teaching.

Personal Description:
I completed Nuclear Power Engineering degree studies in 1990 after 6 years of training in Havana and Moscow. Between 1990 and 2004, I worked as a Biomedical researcher in the fields of Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Vaccine Development. This involves collaboration with many European and American research teams and working visits to leading Biomedical centres in UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and Spain including several UK Royal Society Fellowships and a UK Wellcome Trust International Travelling Post-doctoral Fellowship at Glasgow University Division of Immunology/Microbiology, which can be followed up by publication in peer-review scientific journals. Since 2006, I have been teaching Mathematics at GCSE and A-levels in the UK and currently, I am teaching at these levels plus International Baccalaureate Level. I have been an external marker (Mathematics in English and Spanish languages) for the International Baccalaureate Organisation for the last two years. Born in Cuba, Spanish is my mother tongue, thus i am able to tutor at any level in these two subjects: Mathematics and Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

In the last 4 years, I have had the opportunity to teach both in Scotland and England, thus I am familiar with mathematics teaching programmes in both locations. This include pupils at all stages of secondary education from 11-14 up to Advanced Highers/Advanced A-levels. It includes extensive tutoring practice with pupils preparing for GCSE(Standard Grade) and A(Higher) exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the role of a tutor is to encourage and guide pupils who are already interested to succeed in a particular topic. Thus, I would provide all the encouragement and academic support for them to achieve their top potential. In my experience over the years, I have observed over and over again, that pupils preparing for A/Higher levels exams show most difficulties linking contents taught in previous years(GCSE/Standard Grade) to the newer A/Higher level topics. Thus, I focus a good deal of attention to fill those gaps and develop both pupils' awareness of these connections and relevant knowledge and skills in such a way they are capable to perform independently achieving consistently a minimum of 70%-85% in practice papers prior to the actual exam date.

Personal Description:
I have excellent communication and negotiation skills and am able to empathise with others, evidence of which can be found in my many roles as teacher, tutor, foster parent, mother etc. I have a PGCE in Mathematics and am qualified to teach all of the primary subjects also.

I have a great passion for teaching and have been told by many of my students, both children and adults, that I have a clear way of explaining concepts which previously they had found difficult.

I have endless patience and enjoy the reward of seeing a student overcome the obstacles to their learning and go on to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have many years teaching experience in both state and independent schools and in tutoring both adults and children. I also have experience of SEN and in the assessment of students who may have dyslexia and/or dyscalculia.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a passion for teaching and have been told by many of my students that I am able to explain concepts clearly and simply which they had previously found to be problematical. I enjoy seeing my students overcome the obstacles to their learning and go on to reach their full potential.

Personal Description:
I am a student at the University of Oxford reading German. For my A Levels I studied German, English Literature and History and received A*, A* and an A. For AS I also did Mathematics and for my GCSE's I studied: Maths, Dual Science, English Literature, English Language, German, French, History, Art and Drama.

Teaching Experience:

I worked in a primary school for 6 months in my gap year, primarily teaching reading, writing and mathematics to the younger years as well as art, sport and IT skills. Previous to this job, I taught a German club at a local primary school and have worked on a charity literacy scheme, where I tutored reading and writing one on one to a child who was underachieving for his age group. I have also done other volunteer tutoring at a primary school, reading one on one with the children and improving their literacy skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it is best to discuss together what you feel you need help with or needs to be worked on and from there we can assess how best to proceed. I prefer you to bring your own material to me as from this I can see what it is you are struggling with, how advanced your school work is and the level you are aiming for.

Personal Description:
I'm 28 and a recent graduate Agriculture and International Development at the University of Lund, Sweden. I have a 2:1 (hons.) in Biology from Newcastle University. I enjoy travel and have lived, worked and studied in Japan, Sweden and Chile, which has given me thorough understanding of different styles of learning and teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I worked for three years in Japan as a village primary and middle-school English teacher. Often this invoved planning and teaching large classes. It also involved a lot of one-to-one and small group tutoring. In addition I also undertook private English classes for adults and children of all ages (as young as 2 and as old as 70), including home visits. In addition I proofread essays for graduate students and offer advice on how to improve language and grammar. I have been living and tutoring in London for 6 months.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a relaxed and informal approach to learning. Stress is an inhibitor to clear thinking and understanding. My method of teaching has always been to encourage students to be enthusiastic and confident about what they do know first, before building upon that knowledge. I think it is important to bring all subjects out of books and into the real world, where it is possible to get involved and enthusiastic about the subject. Every student is different and it is my job, as the tutor, to help people learn in a manner which suits them. I like to mix real-world examples with exam question practice and also with open discussions at higher levels.

Personal Description:
I am a very patient and calm person, using several strategies to enable the pupil to understand the topics. I ensure that learning occurs using a child-centred approach. I always strive to put the child first and ensure that I am approachable and put the child at ease.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught year 6 for two years. I have taught a lot of children who have prepared for the 11 plus exams as well as independent school exams. I have a high pass rate of children who have successfully passed the entrance exams. Teaching for over 5 years has enabled me to understand children's needs and allowed me to fine tune my teaching strategies.

Tutoring Approach:

I always ensure that children are feeling confident with a particular topic before I move on to the next topic. It is fundamental that children have an excellent foundation and are secure in the basics. I provide lots of interactive material to allow the child to be motivated, interested and to make learning fun and rewarding.

Personal Description:
I am currently working for a research organisation where I co-ordinate and manage projects for specific clinical trials. I have completed my degree at Heriot Watt University in Biological Sciences. In my final year I specialised in molecular biology and microbiology.

I have in-depth knowledge of biological process and studied a wide range of biological topics including but not limited to: Parasite protozoa and human disease, molecular toxicology, food biotechnology, microbial pathogenesis, molecular biology, genomics and proteomics, protein sorting in eukaryotes, immunology, cell biology, plant biology, animal biology, and the rapid detection of bacteria.
I also undertook more broader courses, in my first year; Mathematics, Chemistry, Psychology, human biology and more.

For my final year at university I undertook a research project which looked at the effects of phytochemicals on pathogenic and non-pathogenic GIT bacteria. I have also worked on a research project with William Grants and sons where micro-algae were used to remove ammonia from a waste effluent to comply with SEPA regulation.

I attained a very high 2:1 honors degree in Biology.
I also have good A-Levels in:

Mathematics
Biology
Sport and Physical education

Teaching Experience:

I am a keen sports player, and have played competitively for my county. As a more experienced team member I have given coaching and advice in regards to technique, position, tactics and fitness. I have also trained colleagues at work in using computer systems and imparting study related information.

As a fourth year student I was given the opportunity to attend laboratory practical sessions to assist the lecturer in teaching new students. I taught them how to work within a laboratory environment. This included sterile techniques, microscopy and staining, molecular separation, and DNA extraction techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially, I would like to have a meeting with the student, either face to face, over the phone, or via online communication. I wouldn't charge for the initial contact as this will help me to produce a learning structure which is catered to improving areas which the student is struggling on, or wishes to improve upon. After an agreed time period, we would reflect on our learning, and will assess their progress. I will achieve this by creating short term and long term goals which both the student and tutor agree upon.
