Personal Description:
I studied Classics at King's College, Cambridge, graduating in 2009. I then trained as a teacher at Queens' College, Cambridge, graduating with a PGCE in 2010. I have been a private tutor since 2009, and have now clocked up thousands of hours' tutoring experience. In addition to my school-age students, I supervise Cambridge University undergraduates in Latin and Ancient Greek. I tutor both languages to degree-level standard in London, Cambridge and on Skype. I love Classics, and my main aim is to make my lessons fun and inspirational.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring Latin and Ancient Greek intensively for the past 7 years, with thousands of hours' teaching experience to date. I have taught towards all major public exams in both languages, such as Common Entrance, GCSE, AS, A2, SAT, Pre-U and even BA (i.e. University exams). I am familiar with the entrance processes for a number of independent and grammar schools, and have had a lot of experience teaching towards scholarship papers. I have tutored many students applying to Cambridge and Oxford, and can provide in-depth advice and support with choosing the right course and college, as well as getting to the necessary level for the language tests. I have also taught the languages to those who have decided to learn them purely for fun! In addition to my face-to-face teaching, I have taught extensively on Skype, and have built up an array of handy techniques to get the most from the online format. I was Head of Latin at a school in Bury St Edmunds for two years (September 2011 to July 2013). Since October 2010, I have been supervising Cambridge undergraduates in Latin and Ancient Greek (colleges so far have included Pembroke, Downing, Homerton, Queens', King's, Murray Edwards, Newnham, Caius, Peterhouse, St John's, Emmanuel and Trinity). I also own and run a private tuition agency, which I set up in 2011, managing a team of eight staff members and over 800 inspirational tutors.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is structured and thorough. I start every lesson with a five minute recap of the key content of the previous session, checking how much the tutee remembers. A typical lesson will then consist of a translation, in which I ask the tutee to note down each unknown word as it is encountered and to devise a memory trick which will help them to recall the word in a five minute test at the end of the lesson. Together with the tutee, I will then pick a grammar point which stood out in the translation exercise as requiring the most immediate attention. We will spend five to ten minutes working on that, with the tutee's understanding tested with some reinforcement exercises. At the end of the lesson we will recap all the new vocabulary and grammar which was covered, and I will typically set a manageable 20 - 30 minute homework for the next session based on what was covered in the lesson. Every lesson is of course different, and tailored to the tutee's requirements, but I find this approach works in the vast majority of cases. I consider grammar to be crucially important, but treat it as a means to an end and always emphasise the ways in which it can be usefully applied to translation rather than learned in isolation. I believe that any tutee can excel in Latin and Greek with a little guidance and a decent amount of independent work. Above all, I strive to make my lessons fun and enjoyable. I love my subject and want all of my tutees to love it too.

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 recently retired teacher with over 30 years combined experience in further education, independent and maintained secondary schools. I am now based in a beautiful part of Norfolk, where I paint, give private tuition and run an art club.
My own work is based on observations of mans' intervention in the landscape. I work in oils, water colour, digital photography and print.
My interests in art and design are many and varied, and include, in no particular order, sculpture/ceramics (Moore, Gormley, Perry), photography (Cartier-Bresson and LaChapelle), graphic design (Brody, Bauhaus), and painting (Freud, Klimt, Giotto, Picasso).

Teaching Experience:

My first foray into teaching was in further education as a visiting lecturer in graphic design and illustration. Subsequently, I trained as a secondary school teacher and quickly became head of my first department in a boys grammar school. From there I moved into the independent sector, continuing to work successfully as head of department and head of faculty.
I have extensive experience as a senior regional moderator for GCSE examinations in art and design with a leading examinations board, being responsible for supervising the work of a team of visiting moderators in the south east of England, and for resolving disputes with schools. I do voluntary work for the National Trust, giving occasional talks to schools on symbolism in Tudor portraits.

Tutoring Approach:

Having started my career as a graphic designer I had, by necessity, to broaden my experience and skills into other two and three-dimensional media in order to become a successful teacher. My departments had outstanding results at GCSE and A-level, and many of my students went on to study at many of the principal art institutions, including Central St Martins, Chelsea, Glasgow, Edinburgh.
Teaching is about finding the unique personality of the individual and finding ways to encourage its expression. Allied to developing the imaginative and creative abilities is the need to create opportunities to build on existing technical skills and introduce new ones. The combination should be fun.

Personal Description:
I am always exam-focused and make sure students get through the exam with good marks.I teach all individual on basis of individual comfort level. I am currently doing ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountant) and CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst ,USA) (CFA candidate).

Teaching Experience:

I have over five years teaching experience and I have successfully provided tutoring services to a large number of students in accounts and finance across London, ranging from O-level to University level.

Tutoring Approach:

My easy demeanour makes me highly approachable and students respond positively in my efforts to get them actively involved in their own learning.I can easily identify problem a particular student is facing and make them do some extra questions from their course book and past papers until the problem is completely resolved.Maths comes by practice and the point of private tuition is to help out students on one to one bases without any distraction.I tend to focus more on common mistakes which are normally repeated by students in their exams and identified by examiner in his report.

Personal Description:
I am currently a fifth year medical student at Imperial College London on the Graduate Entry programme. I have previously studied Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield, achieving a 2.1.

During my time as a student, my learning approach has changed drastically which has subsequently improved my grades throughout my time at university. Last year my examination results were in the top 10% of the cohort and I have received multiple prizes during my time at medical school - one for the overall best performance in an examination, and another for the third best performance. I would love to share this new learning approach with a tutee and hopefully improve their education experience.

I feel that my experience in education has equipped me with the skills needed to tutor, as well as my friendly and approachable manner. Due to my familiarity with applying to medical school, I am also able to offer assistance to prospective medical students in preparing for the UKCAT entrance exam, personal statement writing and interviews.

Teaching Experience:

For the past year I have been tutoring two students - one in degree level Biomedical Science and the other in Physiology. This mainly involved assisting students in revision for upcoming examinations, as well as guiding these students through assignments they found particularly difficult and medical school applications.

During my time at the University of Sheffield, I was a mentor for first year students joining the Biomedical Science course - this involved helping students academically as well as any other issues they had over the course of the year.

I also have experience working with children from the age of 4 and upwards, both as a play leader and in sports coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that the tutoring approach should be adapted for each student based on their needs and preferred learning style. This allows the student to make the most out of each session and progress in their studies.

In general, it is important to start with the basics and ensure that these are understood well. This would allow any issues to be identified early, which may be preventing the student from reaching their full potential. Once the basics are established, we can begin to work through the more challenging material.

Personal Description:
I grew up in south-west London, in Twickenham, before attending Tiffin School (Kingston-Upon-Thames) and Cambridge University, where I was awarded my BA (Hons) degree in History of Art. I have always engaged with extracurricular activities with enthusiasm, something which my educational institutions have given me ample opportunity to do.

My main passion has been acting. It has provided many opportunities to meet and get to know a huge range of different people, all in a challenging, intense environment. Fundamentally, it is the opportunity to engage with the perspective of another person and to attempt to embody this in actions and speech. It requires a performer to listen to and work with others on stage, and to work within a flexible, productive relationship - this is essential for any student-teacher relationship, as a dialogue begins to emerge.

My other interests have similarly complemented my academic pursuits: I have played rugby union for 14 years, up to and including university level, and used to play the french horn in the school orchestra. Both activities gave me an opportunity to voice my individual contribution to the group whilst working within a team, invaluable experience for academic discussion as well as confidence in many other areas of life. They offer different approaches to problem solving and develop some of the broader skills essential for academic success, such as self-expression, articulation, flexibility and confidence.

Teaching Experience:

My experience includes working with primary school students (age 4-6), through a voluntary program at secondary school. This involved helping children to learn to read. The weekly session required empathy and flexibility on my part, demanding an understanding that each child`s ability was completely unique, and that my approach needed to be modified to fit each person. In particular, I had to cultivate patience and a desire to listen and to understand everything the child was saying.

Whilst at university I also participated in a student run mentoring scheme, which gave unprivileged children the opportunity to understand life and work at Cambridge. It was a fascinating opportunity to understand some of the social and personal blocks to academic confidence, as well as offering ways in which these problems might be developed and overcome. Most importantly, it was a joyful experience to be able to help a younger person, and to understand that they were a unique person with their own approach to problems and solutions. By listening to him, I gradually learnt the ways in which they best communicated and how I could use those situations to our advantage as a student-teacher pair.

More recently, I have participated in a student-run university theatre tour which also comprised educational workshops. These workshops were a much bigger part of the tour than we had originally thought, and proved to be challenging at times. This was partly from the language barrier (many classes spoke little to no English, and were often too embarrassed to speak at all), but also from the unpredictable nature of the students. We had to work on our feet, employing what resources we had in a way which was meaningful, cumulative and ultimately led to an end. Our exercises required an overall structure and an ultimate purpose, but we also wanted to adjust this according to their reactions. Though I initially found this challenging, towards the end of the tour I could take charge of workshops and lead them with ease.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching and intellectual discussion have always been an important part of my family life, and it is an activity which I enjoy on a personal as well as professional level. My time at university has developed my ability to think in this way, as well as providing an environment in which I was surrounded by these kinds of discussion, with both professors and students. The emphasis on close-contact supervision periods at Cambridge taught me the importance of helping each student understand their individual form of expression.

I would avoid didactic repetition and seek to challenge the student and invite them to contribute. As well as work done outside the tutoring time period, I would encourage tasks such as presentations and prepared discussions as much as possible. I believe this work lays an essential base for passionate intellectual discussion, and it is something which certainly helped me in my university interview.

Coupled with this development of interest in particular subject areas, I would try to help the student's method of arguing and offer sustained, constructive advice on how that might be more effective. A university candidate is only as successful as their ability to communicate effectively and succinctly, something which may require exercises as different as confidence building or syntax and grammar. But as well as this self-belief and self expression, the student would need to acknowledge that academic (and educational) progress can be achieved by listening to others and attempting to understand their point of view. This dialogic aspect is essential to my tutoring approach.

Personal Description:
I work freelance in tutoring, teaching and proof-reading and am currently working in local secondary schools as a cover supervisor. I have interests in a range of areas,, including drama and art. I plan to combine teaching and tutoring with work as an illustrator in the near future.
I have also performed spoken-word poetry in Manchester and headlined a couple of nights.
I am quite successful at pub quizzes due to having a large and random range of interests, including history, science and culture and luckily having the sort of memory that recalls useful facts.
I believe that work should be integrated into the rest of life and that learning never ends.
I enjoy teaching and tutoring because it gives me an opportunity to meet a huge variety of people and to encourage them to develop confidence and life skills. I also like a job invovling communication and rapid results.

Teaching Experience:

I have five years teaching A-Level and GCSE English, as well as tutoring and teaching Latin. Also experience of teaching English to students from around the world, both here and in Europe. I have worked particularly with students aged 14-19 and with students retaking GCSE English with some reluctance.

For the past four summer I have taught university entrance and study-skills at Southampton University, helping students to improve their essay-writing and critical reading as well as helping refine their English grammar performance.

I have seen many different GCSE English assessment methods and boards and have been able to teach the fundamental similiarities of cirtical reading and directed writing that underlie all these varieties. I am also confident in being able to explain English grammar to current assessment standards.

I can also teach more detailed and challenging reading and writing strategies through helping students prepare for university courses and study A-Levels and Access Level 3. I am particularly interested in English literature and poetry.

I have also taught Latin, Film Studies, Politics and GCSE Maths. I designed and ran a Latin evening course for a few terms.

Tutoring Approach:

I think Students need to enjoy the subject in order to understand it fully and to be able to work flexibly in exams and coursework, When they approach questions from a position of confidence and relaxation, they can answer them more effectively.

A tutor works best when providing an alternative to school-based education and a good tutor will enable their student to explore around a topic and to discuss any particular issues and concerns.

I have found that lack of confidence is one of the main barriers to success and that this can often be overcome with the right exercises and personal attention. Another issue that often comes up is confusion about the exact requirements of an exam or assessment. This is an area that can benefit greatly from tutoring support. It is much easier to study once the expectations and structures of a course are made clear.

Personal Description:
A first class Medical Sciences graduate and qualified teacher, I have over 5 years` experience in teaching/tuition.

Well-versed in most major exam boards, I am able to work successfully with students across all levels of attainment in order to further their understanding of core scientific principles and enhance their exam technique. My position as an assessment specialist with two of the major exam boards has enhanced further my understanding of how credit is awarded in exams - enabling me to not only improve students' subject knowledge, but to improve their approach to exam questions as well.

I take a positive and friendly approach to tuition, and am happy to be flexible in using the methods that best suit the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor since attending university in Exeter, and have helped students to improve on their grade by up to 3 grade boundaries over time.

I taught professionally for two and a half years, training through the prestigious Teach First programme. My progress was judged as outstanding. I was consistently judged good/outstanding, both internally and by Ofsted, and I was a lead teacher in my last role.

Tutoring Approach:

Largely, this will depend on what the student is hoping to achieve. I appreciate that, most often, a student's aim is to achieve a certain grade in an exam. In these cases, I will spend a lot of time working with the student to familiarise them not only with the material for the exam, but with the format of the exam paper, exploring how to approach different types of question and working directly with mark schemes to best understand how credit is awarded.

I am, however, passionate about my subject, and aim to uncover some enthusiasm for the sciences with all my students, through engaging sessions in which we can explore topics in perhaps more detail than is often possible within schools.

Personal Description:
Having recently just graduated from the University of Leeds with a qualifying 2:1 law degree, I am now living back at home in St. Helens, Merseyside. I work weekdays as a graduate paralegal at a law firm, but in my spare time I would love to tutor people whose position I was in not very long ago. At college I did Law, English Language, Sociology and Geography. Law was my strongest subject which encouraged me to study it at University. I am extremely easy to get along with and have a real bubbly, down to earth personality.

Teaching Experience:

I have no teaching experience; however, as a recent graduate, what I do have is a big understanding of how difficult and daunting it can be to balance work time and down time. I have a great amount of patience and due to my love for Law, I feel I could teach what I know with great compassion and enthusiasm. I take pleasure in helping others and would go above and beyond to help someone reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

Having studied Law for five years, I understand how much case law, facts and dates need to be retained. I would be able to show students the methods I used to help me remember such information as part of exam preparation. It's also key to problem solve and go through questions methodically and systematically, triggering cases as you go along. Past papers are a good way to do this, thus I could provide some of those and we would work through those together. At A-level I did Criminal Law, Tort Law and Contract law, so would feel most at ease teaching those subjects. I also got a 2:1 in all those modules at University and completed my dissertation in the field of Criminal Law.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!
I am a fully qualified, native French teacher (PGCE from the University of Portsmouth, Summer 1994).
I am married with two older children, themselves going through examinations at the moment. I also have four cats.

Teaching Experience:

I came to the UK in 1993, started teaching in a school in Sept. 1994 and teaching privately in 1998.
I no longer teach at a school but instead, teach privately to individuals or small groups.

I have been an examiner for AQA since 1998 so I am very aware of the skills and knowledge required by examination boards. I am currently a team leader for French GCSE and an examiner for A2.

I have taught a wide range of students over the years: KS3, GCSE and A Level, adult learners, younger children and adults in a business environment.

Tutoring Approach:

What I enjoy the most is to see people make big improvements and become confident with their French, from the moment they start to understand how the language works.
I am a good communicator and feel that I can understand people`s difficulties quickly so we can work on those aspects and start to make progress, once the foundations have been put (back) in place.

I am a dedicated, hard working and well organised person who enjoys seeing her pupils do well and (re)gain confidence.
I plan all my lessons very methodically and provide all papers / worksheets to my pupils. I also set homework and, more importantly, mark it! Very often, pupils will email me to ask me to check a piece of writing / homework that they are working on, and I am happy to help them with this too.
