Personal Description:
I am a professionally trained actor. I have written for numerous publications, with stories and poems published regularly. I am confident with public speaking, since I have been performing in diverse venues for nearly 10 years. I have an MA in Acting and an MA in Theatre & Performance Studies. I have professional training in elocution, pronunciation as well as accent and dialect work.

I am a keen footballer, and believe in the importance of keeping fit and eating healthily. I also love travel, gardening, fixing computers and watching and critiquing films and theatre.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private Tutor since 2007, and am a member of a number of private tutoring companies. I have tutored in English Language, English Literature, Speech, Drama, Acting, Philosophy, Entrance Exams, and most primary subjects. I have tutored Students from all ages and abilities; including adults and teenagers, as well as younger pupils, and pupils with learning difficulties

From Aug 2009 to May 2010 I was a Learning Support Assistant, DeBeauvoir School, Hackney, London.

Main duties included ensuring that students with learning difficulties are both kept up to speed with the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Other duties include:
- To provide full time academic and pastoral support to individual learners with learning difficulties, and/or behavioural and social problems.
- To provide academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- To encourage learners to pursue further academic or vocational education.
- To provide behavioural support in class and to teaching staff at all times.

July 2009 - August 2009 I was SEN Assistant at Kentish Town CE School, London

Main duties include ensuring that students with physical and/or cognitive complications are given the extra support they require within the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Jan 2009 - June 2009 I was a Cover Supervisor, Neat Education & Select Education, Sheffield

Responsibilities are that of a Supply Teacher, being responsible for the learning and conduct of a whole class of students. Maintaining discipline and focus as well as being at all times a strong leader and role model were essential at all times.

Other duties include:
- Academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- Monitoring attendance of learners and set appropriate targets.
- Invigilating examinations and mark work.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that Tutoring is first about personal connection. Any learning can only be achieved given a certain level of trust, which must be established in order to create a solid platform from which further learning can then flourish. Younger students are most open to absorbing information and should have the chance to take academic information and guidance from a range of people. This enhances the educational experiences and broadens the horizons of a student.

Having myself struggled with poor teachers, or unwieldy subject matter, I know that, with the right teachers, such areas can come alive. More clinical approaches to tutoring further separate students from the learning process. Having experienced one-to-one tuition myself, I have seen the many positives and potential pitfalls the system can bring. These experiences galvanize me and help me in my own tutoring. I relish taking what I have learnt, and the exciting methods by which I have learnt it, and passing that on to other students.

Regardless of the level taught, it is impossible to make real progress unless the student first has engagement and interest in the subject. I see my task as tutor as a process of invigorating the material for those studying.

Personal Description:
I am London-based, with experience in tutoring English Language and Literature to secondary students from the ages of 13 to 16. I am particularly focused on years 10 to 11 and the Language/Literature GCSEs. I am familiar with the AQA and OCR exam boards, and I understand the stresses facing many students at this point in their academic life.

Teaching Experience:

To date, I have been tutoring part-time, however I would now like to move into it on a fuller basis. I also have experience of teaching English to people for whom it is not a first language, and I can draw on this where some GSCE students may not always have lived in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient and understanding of the pressures facing many young people at this point in their academic life. However I will also work to ensure that they challenge themselves to get the very best results, to an aim to building knowledge of English as subject and self-confidence in their ability to tackle and enjoy it.

Personal Description:
I am a 31-year old female languages graduate with a BA(Hons) 2:1 in Modern European Languages from Durham University and a Trinity CertTESOL certificate.. I am approachable and friendly. I believe everyone has the capacity to learn a language and my job as a tutor is to help unlock that potential so you enjoy the learning experience.

Teaching Experience:

I've previously tutored French up to GCSE level and Spanish and Italian up to A-Level standard. I am a TESOL qualified English teacher with experience working abroad and have also tutored primary school children in languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor my approach to the student, depending on their age, level and what they hope to get out of the sessions, as well as their preferred learning style.For younger children I would tend to include more activities, whereas for students studying for exams I would focus more on helping with coursework, revising topics covered in class, and exercises.

Personal Description:
I am a based on the Wirral on Merseyside. I have a degree in Mathematics and Psychology from University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. I am 25 years old and have spent time learning my trade in a variety of schools across the Wirral. My teach consistently at an outstanding level which has been supported by observations and reviews from senior staff.

Teaching Experience:

I recently completed my PGCE and am now half way through my NQT year. I have trained in Grammar and Comprehensive schools and have taught GCSE and A-Level. I have worked with pupils across the whole spectrum and take a versatile approach to teaching to meet the needs of each individual.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe my selling point is my knowledge of the requirements to meet individual target grades at GCSE. I enjoy teaching all levels and abilities. I like to think as I am fresh out of university I am able to relate the learning to the pupils and teach them methods and strategies to help them retain and overcome challenges.

I am patient, persistent and most of all dedicated. I believe you learn the most when you are enjoying yourself and its that attitude and approach I bring to a learning environment.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old Austrlian Teacher with a passion for nature and wildlife. I have experience with tutoring students in Australia and I absolutely love working 1 on 1 with students to help them achieve their personal learning goals.

Teaching Experience:

I am a KS3 and KS4 teacher, trained in Australia. I have 1 years teaching experience in Australia and have been working as a KS3 and 4 Science/ Maths teacher for the last 18 months in England. In the year next academic year 2014 - 2015 I will be teaching only mathematics, but am still able and interesting in tutoring GCSE science.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe it is essential to the success of a tutee to first pin-point which particular issues they believe are stopping them from achieving their target grades. From their, I can work with the tutees and their parents on long term success strategies, whether it be revising concepts from previous key stages which were not fully developed, understanding teachers' feedback, or overcoming low literacy skills. This process will help tutees become more self-reliant learners, in turn giving them confidence in themselves and their abilities.

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 a native French speaker, aged 21, currently working in a school in Gateshead as a French Language Assistant, so I am already used to teaching my own language. I also aim to become an English teacher after completing my teaching degree in France. I will be in Newcastle until the end of May, when my contract with the school ends. After this I will go back to France to finish my studies.

I am passionate about literature and music, and would be able to teach cultural aspects of France if that is what you are looking for. I have also always loved languages since I was a child, I learnt English and German from the age of 10, I also did some Spanish and Russian at the end of secondary school, and I have been trying to learn Italian for the last few months. I would be glad to pass on this love for languages.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching French in Gateshead as a French Language Assistant. As part of my teaching degree in France I also did a short internship in a French secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very open for the way of teaching, depending on you needs and the skills you want to acquire (grammar, reading, speaking, cultural aspects of the language). I can bring along teaching resources if needed. I would be happy to discuss your needs to be able to adapt to the way of tutoring that suits you.

Personal Description:
I am a creative artist, actor and educator, inspired by performance art in all its forms. I am fortunate to work doing what I love. My current artistic interests include puppetry and performance, theatre in non-traditional spaces, and working as a freelance dramaturg to help smaller scale theatre companies realise their artistic aims and consolidate their working practices.

I attended a Grammar School, RGS Worcester, a top school with high expectations. I excelled in this environment, always achieving the best academic results. I am now, as I was then, a high achiever.

I am a keen writer and maker of puppets, I find nothing more relaxing than long immersive forays into the imagination.

I am a keen martial artist, stage fighter, and fencer. I'm a big lover of all things outdoors, the wilder, the better.

As an avid reader I am particularly drawn to heroic fantasy and sprawling worlds, beguiling first person narratives, comparative religious and spiritual studies, psychology, and history.

Teaching Experience:

My first degree from The University of Bristol nudged me in the direction of teaching. I worked for 6 years as a secondary school teacher, delivering Drama and English lessons, including GCSE and A level, from year 7- year 13. I offered extra-curricular tutorials to students to help them achieve their desired results. This included university entrance master classes.

During my tenure at the second school I worked at my lessons were recorded by Edexcel Examination Board as an exemplar of excellent practice.

As a teacher my services were sought by 'feeder' primary schools and I started leading workshops at primary level. While doing this I became aware of the need for more educational provision in non-formal settings. I eventually went part-time at schools, and began working with, and for, local councils to provide literacy workshops for young people who felt disenfranchised by traditional educational settings. My work with Redditch Borough Council as Outreach officer earned me an 'Outstanding personal Achievement Award'.

Since turning my attention to acting I have maintained strong links with my educational roots, I still work in schools, community centres, universities, as tutor, facilitator and lecturer. I will always think of myself as an educator, my most satisfying professional moments involve inspiring others, and these moments always occur when teaching and tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

Student focused and forward thinking, the best learning happens when student and tutor share a mutually inspiring relationship.

I worked for 6 years as a secondary teacher, delivering English, English Literature and Drama from Year 7 up to Year 13, including GCSE and A Level. I am extremely experienced in coursework and exam preparation. As a teacher I received the best results for my students, and the best feedback for myself (including twice being given an 'outstanding' accolade by Ofsted.)

I still work extensively as an educator: as tutor, lecturer and workshop facilitator, both in formal and non-formal settings, teaching young people of all ages from primary to university level.

I have a personable and gentle teaching style, tempered by profound understanding of examination board requirements. Moreover, my many years working as an arts educator has entailed the need to develop a flexible range of teaching strategies correspondent to the varying learning preferences of my students. I have worked with hundreds of students, in a multitude of different settings.
