Personal Description:
I am now a full time tutor after spending two decades teaching Mathematics and Science.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced teacher. I have been the Head of Mathematics at a private school and previously taught in state schools.

Tutoring Approach:

The first three tutoring sessions are quite diagnostic. The aim is not only to find out strengths and weaknesses but also to see how quickly we can cover topics with most of the information retained.
As we cover material at a much faster rate than in normal class lessons.; recaps at speed become more import as lessons develop and confidence improves. The syllabus and past exam papers provide the main framework for most lessons.
Exam technique lessons, examiners mark schemes and revision materials are normally provided.

Subjects
  • Combined Science
  • GCSE or Standards (35 p.h.)
  • Physics
  • 11+ (secondary) (35 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (35 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (35 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am 30 years old from the Old Trafford/ Stretford area of Manchester, I graduated in Law from Lancaster university in 2008, I now work in Conveyancing/Property law having previously worked in the Banking/financial field. I am an individual who is quite fond of reading, debating and discovering new things. I would say I am quite lively, not too difficult to get on with, very ambitious but also with an equal dash of a patience for I am a patient individual. Although I am admittedly not fantastic at sports I do play badminton and football from time to time I can play a range of sports but those tend to be the main two. I am a massive fan of education and self development. The colossal impact both areas can have upon our lives is incalculable, as such I tend to be never too far away from reading a book or learning something new to further myself.

Teaching Experience:

I have mainly gained a lot of my early teaching experience through tutoring younger siblings and assisting the junior year students either at college or University with areas which they either required either extra help in or further knowledge. I have further developed this over the last four years and I am confident that the contribution which I have made to those who I have helped has been substantial in helping them to progress onwards to the next stage and beyond. As such I would hope to extend this towards any student who desires to take me on board and to progress until they are ready for the task at hand.

As I have progressed over the years, teaching various and numerous tutees, my own personal & teaching experience has grown exponentially year on year. As such I believe I can approach any teaching scenario and offer the required angle to ensure success as a result of previous experience yet I still take each student on a case by case/ individual basis rather than a blanket approach.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin my approach with an informal but analytical conversation with the student, parent or both in order to assess strengths and areas where we can develop a plan of action or just to establish face to face what it is we will be doing in the time we have. I will aim to take each stage step by step until both you and I are satisfied that we are confident in understanding and explaining coherently the relevant information. I will be professional but understanding as patience dictates, most importantly any work set during the session will be wholly relevant, comprehensible and creative in order to match your needs.

I do incorporate digital media, an interactive projector for lessons and presentations or a whiteboard depending on the subject if a visual element is required in teaching. Presentations can be sent via email at any time as well.


*For any LPC students I can also tutor and instruct in Solicitors accounts too.

Personal Description:
I am a jovial person who enjoys the vocation of teaching; I love to see the light go on in a learner. I am an Englishman abroad and wouldn't change where I live for a moment.

I am a keen musician (very amatuer) and my limited spare time is spent in my home studio mucking about and not getting anything actually achieved. I also enjoy the restoration of my house and garden which, like the Forth bridge, will never be finished!

I am a dog owner and nature lover and have a broad teaching style; I prefer the learner to dictate the style and I find the methods to fit.

Please feel free to ask questions.

Thank you

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for over 20 years which culminated in a Head of Dept roll for 5 years (Business Studies). I have been very fortunate in my career to have taught all age groups many different subjects. I have returned to mainstream secondary education, teaching Business Studies and ICT following A level ICT at Coleg Menai and tutition for Single parents (charity) which has provided me with different skills and approaches rather than just formal classroom led instruction.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a holistic type and I always want the learner to be happy with an answer they give and know "why" the answer is correct. I hopefully bring humour (debatable) and a wide variety of methods to my teaching along with contemporary examples.

At present I am available in the evenings (Mon to Thurs, 5 to 8).

Please note that my prices include no additional travel expenses up to 15 miles from my home and I am perfectly happy to offer group discounts - the more learners the cheaper the individual cost.

Thanks for looking.

Personal Description:
FIRST LESSON FREE - This is an opportunity for me to assess your level and expectations and for you to decide if you are happy with me and my teaching methods.

As a speaker of four languages I know what it feels like to be a student as well as a teacher, so I like to ensure my lessons are not boring but also not just fun and no learning development happens.

I have a purpose designed classroom in my house, with whiteboards etc and a wealth of teaching material, a real teaching environment encourages good learning.

Teaching Experience:

2001-2005 Qualified as a Mandarin teacher at the Taipei Langauge Insitute and taught people from the UK, USA, Japan and numerous other countries.

2006-date Having moved to the UK I have taught at BBC Worldwide, London Conversation Piece, Basingstoke Queen Mary College, as well as numerous one to one classes for adults and children of all levels from holiday conversations, academic like GCSE & A Levels and professional usage such as legal, museums etc.

In August 2015 I travelled to Beijing to undertake further teacher training at the Beijing Language & Culture University, as I feel it is important to not become complacent and look to learn new methods and techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student is different so whilst my all classes cover the basics, they all are developed to personally meet your requirements and expectations.
I use various teaching methods, such as role play, newspapers, television episodes, even a trip to Chinese restaurant as well as a variety of text books and mock tests.
I will explain the grammar and how culture effects the language.
I speak with the standard correct Chinese pronunciation and use both simplified and traditional characters and even classical.
It is important to me that you both enjoy the classes but also see your Chinese develop.
Naturally lessons will cover, talking, reading, writing, listening

Personal Description:
I am a professional writer and my most recent qualification is a first-class BA in English Language and Literature awarded in 2013 from the University of Leeds. I also have an up-to-date DBS certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a tutor with JK Educate - a large agency who've equipped me with training to meet the needs of my tutees. I've also completed the University of Leeds Peer Mentoring Programme, a role which required me to give academic and pastoral advice to first years in the School of English when I was in my second and third years.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is, to many people, the cornerstone of a progressive education. In our current educational climate, tutoring offers to children a means to achieve academic success and progress onto the institutions of their dreams. I should know. Having been raised on a council estate in Bow, East London, where the state schools are poor (to put it mildly), I was tutored, firstly by my dad in arithmetic, then by a stream of excellent tutors who added English and more advanced Maths to my home curriculum, and by the time I left primary school I held a scholarship offer to my dream school. the prestigious independent day school City Of London.

Larger class sizes mean that children don't get the attention they deserve. In my school years I fell into that general category of learners that require close attention throughout their education to achieve their goals. I felt that the bulk of secondary school was particularly challenging because I was in large classes, and by this point was not receiving supplementary tutoring. By A-Level, the smaller class sizes enabled me to flourish in my four chosen subjects and graduate to attend the University of Leeds on the Leeds scholarship. While there, the one-to-one tuition I received from my professors, who encouraged my research in healthy directions, helped me leave with a first-class result.

All this is to say that I know exactly how important tutoring is. For me it is a fantastic and rewarding experience, and one which I have a lot of energy and patience for. My approach is fastidious and rooted to the needs of the individual tutee. I also feel that, particularly with younger students, parents should be fully informed with regards to the progress their child is making and the areas which need improvement. Through close and critical observation I believe a tutor can massively turn the tide of a young learner's academic progress.
