Personal Description:
I gained a PGCE in secondary science (physics specialism), after studying biomedical sciences. I then worked for two years teaching secondary science. I then became a private tutor while studying for an MA in sociolinguistics, and have continued tutoring while researching for a PhD in linguistics. This year I am studying for a graduate diploma in mathematics.

I am fascinated by all areas of science, mathematics and philosophy, from quantum mechanics, chaos and cosmology to sociobiology, cognitive science and psycholinguistics. I have a passion for acquiring knowledge and educating others, and have an ever-expanding range of strategies to suit individual needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience as a classroom teacher of Science with year 7 up to year 13 across the ability range, and have successfully tutored students privately in all three sciences at GCSE and A level, including improving grades for re-sits.

Tutoring Approach:

I make extensive use of past exam questions; the best way to do well in exams is to practise doing exams! This also allows realistic monitoring of performance as tutoring continues. I normally email exam questions for students to attempt before the tutoring session.

Students should have time to explore their interests in the subject by asking questions of their own. This is an important part of reflective learning and will help build and maintain enthusiasm.

I am happy to teach up to 3 students in a single session. Multiple bookings have a reduced fee per student due to the moderate reduction in individual attention.

Personal Description:
At undergraduate level I studied Classics at Oxford University, which involved rigorous language learning and a close engagement with set texts. I was awarded an academic scholarship for my examination results. Then I completed a Master's Degree in Latin literature at UCL, focusing particularly on the influence of Latin literature on contemporary theatre. I was awarded The Dean's List prize for academic excellence. It is Latin poetry that particularly holds my attention because, even after two thousand years, there is still so much new to be said about it.

Teaching Experience:

Private tutor for six years, with significant experience in private tuition of Latin, Greek and English at all levels.

Taught Latin at a prep school. This required lesson planning, homework marking and well-tailored teaching because of the small class sizes. Although we referred to the 'Minimus' textbook frequently as a well-planned learning scheme there was no strict curriculum, which meant that we could use the lessons to explore some of the more enjoyable aspects of studying Classics.

Teaching assistant for primary school Latin classes. The class size was small, which allowed me to get to know the students individually and help each of them according to their level.

Excellent, up-to-date knowledge of the current syllabuses for Common Entrance, GCSE and A-level and have worked extensively from the Oxford and Cambridge Latin Courses, from Athenaze, Greek to GCSE, the ISEB Common Entrance publications and from other frequently used textbooks.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing is to find out the areas with which the student will need the most help. In the first session, I'll discuss with the student which areas we should focus on, then I will plan my lessons carefully to address those areas of difficulty.

I like to build routine into tuition sessions, particularly when learning vocabulary, so that the student knows what to expect in each session.

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:
Human Resource and Human Resource Management are the area of my expertise and this is something I am very passionate about. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this subject and I enjoy working with students at college and university level. I also teach business studies and its relationship to HRM at degree level.

I have been teaching and working in Human Resource Management for around 35 years. I have worked at Nottingham Trent University and University of Derby. I have also worked in Universities outside of the the UK.

Also I am currently a PhD Assessor.

Whatever your reasons I am able to assist you manage your work, your assignments and your dissertation. Not all sessions are paid for there is a fair about of goodwill on my part to continue to be your anchor during your challenging moments in the lecture room.

 Social Science Studies
 Youth and Social Work

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different when it comes to learning. Some students enjoy 1 to 1 and some students love group learning. My approach is to create an individual style for each student and work with you to meet your learning needs.

The key to any success is READING and then having the opportunity to discuss the subject in detail to analyse the the debate.

In addition to this, it is important to develop skills and understanding of your subject area so that you are aware of the key areas of policy and theory and how theory is applied to policy in the real world.

Personal Description:
I am a voracious reader, and was therefore tempted to choose English as my main subject in university, but eventually decided on French. I studied at Stanford University for four years, including one year through its study abroad programme in Paris. I have also worked many years as a professional musician, touring in the UK, Europe, USA and Mexico.

Teaching Experience:

Now a qualified teacher, having trained at the PGCE programme in Aberystwyth, I have taught in many schools around the Aberystwyth area.

I taught English to high school students for one year in France.
In a night school in Utah (USA) I taught English as a second language to adults.
I have taught music (guitar, ukulele and piano) for nearly 10 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in student-centred teaching, so rather than impose strict rules I approach each student as an individual in order to find the best approach for gaining skills and confidence in the subject. Structure is also important, however, and it's important to use exercises and repetition to really come to terms with a subject. Games and songs have their place, too; let's have fun while we're learning!

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a GB skeleton athlete currently on a sabbatical from my job as an exercise physiologist. My expertise is in sport science, specialising in physiology which I have a MSc degree from Loughborough University. I am living in Bath again (I did my first degree here) in order to train full-time for skeleton, with the goal being to compete at the Olympic Games in 2022.

I have plenty of ambition, drive and determination and love to inspire people to work hard to achieve their goals. So far I have achieved all the goals I set for myself since school e.g. studying at university, working in elite sport.

I studied maths, english, science, history, geography, P.E., textiles and French for GCSE and got A and A* grades. At A level I studied biology,P.E. and history and received AAB respectively. I have a upper second class honours BSc in sport and exercise science from The University of Bath and a first class MSc in exercise physiology.

Teaching Experience:

I was a class tutor at Loughborough College for three months after graduating from Loughborough University. This involved working closely with pupils to assist them with their school work across a number of subjects at GCSE level.

Part of my role as a sport scientist was to educate athletes on a number of subjects which would improve their performance. This involved constructing and delivering presentations to groups of adults as well as GCSE/A level students. I also regularly worked on a one to one basis to educate athletes on ways they can improve their performance. In both instances I always use examples to demonstrate the point I am making and improve understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a supportive tutor, who encourages students to find the solutions to their problems. I aim to facilitate learning, not spoon feed. I'm also keen to focus on the bigger picture in order to motivate students, for example reminding them that the work is important so they can pass their exams to get into university. I find having a goal is a strong motivator and also the practise of setting goals puts students in good stead for the future.

I take a kind and patient approach to tutoring. I like to encourage students to adopt a growth mindset whereby they do not fear failure and value hard work and effort.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Iakovos and I am a qualified (holding QTS) and experienced teacher. I have been teaching Latin, Ancient Greek, Biblical Greek, Modern Greek, History and Religious Education since 2007. I am passionate about teaching and always looking forward to enriching my knowledge; not only in my areas of teaching, but also in other topics.

I also write poetry. Some of my poems have been published in Greek and Cypriot journals and I have also written two volumes of poetry, which have been published by Anazitiseis publishing house in Cyprus, my home country.

Teaching Experience:

I studied Latin and Greek at the University of Ioannina, Greece. The main subjects of my first degree are the following: Latin Language and Literature (like Roman Satire and Cicero), Ancient Greek Language and Literature (like Homer, Tragedy and Comedy), Byzantine Greek, Modern Greek, Philosophy and History.

After my first degree, I decided to continue my studies at a postgraduate level. I did a Master of Arts in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. After, I did a Master in Theology, specializing in World Religions, Monasticism and Philosophy. I am currently reading for a PhD at King's College London in Greek and Medical Humanities.

Apart from my long experience as a freelance teacher of Latin and Greek -at all levels: Entry Level, GCSE, A Level-, I also worked as a Latin and Greek teacher in Primary, Secondary and Higher Education in the U.K and other European countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an experienced tutor, as I have long experience in teaching 1:1, small groups of students, as well as groups of more than 20 pupils. Working as a language, RE and History tutor and teacher, my methodology is based on PowerPoint presentations, explaining Latin grammar, for example, through a comparison of Latin and English.

I am an expert user of HOTS (Higher-Order Thinking Skills), which challenge students and help them reach their potentials.

Hello, I am a Spanish native speaker and I studied two degrees about Education and Foreign Languages Teaching.

Don`t hesitate to contact me, I`ll try to do my best
Thank you very much for your attention.
See you!
¡Hasta pronto!

Teaching Experience:

I can help children, teenagers and adults with different goals like official exams (GCSE,A Level, PGSE, University level...) travelling, socializing, living abroad, any reason actually. The lessons are mostly focused on Speaking and Listening, in order to help prepare you to communicate well with native Spanish speakers. I also cover off Grammar, Vocabulary, Writing and Reading - these are all very important in becoming fluent in Spanish.
When I help kids to work towards their GCSE or A level exams, my lessons are more formal and structured. but whatever the lesson, I always try to make my students feel comfortable and relaxed, no matter what age they are.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is relaxed and I aim to build your self-confidence in Spanish,

Personal Description:
I graduated with an upper 2:1 in English Literature and Journalism in 2012. As well as receiving a scholarship and bursary to attend this university, I was awarded the subject prize for journalism upon graduation. Hopefully, this goes some way to demonstrating both my strong work ethic and my aptitude for academia.

In the years since then, I have travelled extensively. As well as living in London, Brighton and Melbourne, I have explored South-East Asia and even taught English to local children in Laos. Now I've found my feet back in my hometown, and am currently working as a freelance copywriter creating all manner of marketing materials written to various client briefs. This means my schedule is fully flexible. I would love to spend a few spare hours a week tutoring, as I think it would be both a meaningful and a rewarding way to supplement my income.

Teaching Experience:

Aside from a stint volunteering in Laos teaching English to local schoolchildren, I have experience proofreading essays at various academic levels. This stems from my five-year career as a freelance copywriter. I am confident with my writing ability, as well as in my grasp of grammar and language. I feel well-placed to aid those who are perhaps not so confident in these areas.

I am also very widely read. An appreciation for context is fundamental for pushing literature grades up to those higher tiers.

Aside from this, I have experience on a one-to-one basis teaching piano lessons. I would certainly apply similar interpersonal skills to tutoring in English. I am patient, friendly, and above all else passionate about English literature and language.

Tutoring Approach:

Certainly, when preparing for English exams, a thorough understanding of the assessment objectives (AOs) is imperative to earn a higher grade. For an English literature exam, this would mean we would analyse a range of key literary critical concepts. We would also get to grips with how to structure an argument, as well as looking at writing techniques, context, and expression. As for English language, we would have a thorough look at various linguistic methods and terminology, including clause structure, tenses, and other key parts of speech.

I also encourage homework! The pressures of writing an essay under exam conditions are tremendous, particularly if a pupil is not prepared. In preparation for an English Literature A Level exam, I would recommend one essay a week under timed conditions, which I would then grade. It's challenging, but it is worth the work.

As for my teaching style, I find enthusiasm is often highly contagious. Whether it's a seemingly dry bit of Shakespeare or an enigmatic Romanticist poem, we'll work together to find ways to demystify the language and even make it enjoyable.

Apostrophe angst? Sentence structure struggles? I can also aid you with grammar, punctuation, writing techniques and other essential writing or language skills.
