Personal Description:
A full member of the Tutors Association, I have much tuition, coaching, lecturing and training experience; both one-to-one and in groups.
Holding several relevant academic qualifications (including a degree in Maths & Physics), I am also a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Scientist, and full Corporate Member of the Institute of Physics.
During my career, I have held several senior management positions within several British based companies.
Having a fundamental love of virtually all things mathematical and scientific, I very much enjoy passing on that enthusiasm & knowledge to 'A' Level students, with the aim of enhancing their confidence and skills, & boosting subsequent examination performance.
I hold full and current enhanced DBS accreditation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been offering 'A' Level tuition in Maths & Engineering since 1997
The vast majority of students with whom I have worked have either achieved, or surpassed, their target grades.
During the last academic year (2015/2016)) I was pleased to work regularly (typically weekly) with thirteen 'A' Level Maths students (from Bude, Holsworthy, Launceston, Exeter and Barnstaple), one student studying Electrical Engineering at Cardiff University, and one studying Maths with the Open University.

Tutoring Approach:

Being an active participant in, and supporter of, the whole education process, I have also held a four year LEA Governorship at a school in mid-Devon.
My approach to tutoring is, first of all, to talk openly with any potential student (ideally with parent or guardian present) in order to find out what is required, the problems, issues etc.
I treat all students as adults, and do not patronise or talk down to them, ie I treat each one as a mature individual. My aim is to work closely with each student, in the way that best suits him/her, in order to empower him/her with higher levels of knowledge and ability. The result being that their confidence and skill levels increase to those necessary to achieve the best possible exam grades. I encourage my students to actively participate in the tutoring process; to challenge, and to ask questions and discuss all aspects of the work content.
I coach all my students in exam techniques, with emphasis on layout, showing working, best use of time etc.
Last, but certainly not least, I believe it to be of fundamental importance to work with all my students in complete confidence; before, during and after any tutoring involvement.

Personal Description:
I am a postgraduate from the University of Leeds with a degree in Translation Studies with French. I have a passion for speaking French and I enjoy helping others with theirs. Simple as that really.

Teaching Experience:

Despite my relatively young age I have lots of teaching experience. I have been an English language assistant in France on two occasions, most recent of which was last year. I have worked with people with both adults and children ranging from ages 7 to 40

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is fairly straight-forward, to keep it relaxed and as informal as possible. I believe the best results can be obtained when the student is relaxed and confident, especially with regards to trying to speak a foreign language, as sometimes in a school environment the student lacks the confidence to ask questions. Rest assured, under my tuition your competence in written and spoken French will improve greatly, and hopefully it will be fun!

Personal Description:
I am a graduate from Bristol University with a Masters Degree in Mathematics, specialising in Applied Mathematics and in particular, Quantum Mechanics. I am patient and friendly, and keen to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject.
I am an avid musician and devote much of my spare time to playing piano and guitar, both of which I play in my band. I am also a big fan of going to gigs/festivals, barbeques, playing sport and hanging out with friends.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private tutor since September 2011 and have had a great deal of success, the most recent of which including students being accepted to study at both Oxford and Cambridge, all of my A-Level students achieving A/A* grades, and a mature student whom I taught Further Maths from scratch has received an offer and is now studying Physics at Surrey University.
I taught in a school in Bristol as part of my studies which included a lesson a week whereby I taught algebra to a group of students from Somalia with very limited English skills. I have also spent 3 weeks teaching and assisting in a local school in Guildford.
I have worked with students of all abilities and so am able to pitch my explanations at the appropriate level for the student, and have been praised for my ability to provide clear and concise explanations, and my friendly approach to teaching. I am young, enthusiastic and experienced in exam preparation and revision techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer teaching Maths by explaining concepts at a fundamental level, following up with well-worked examples of the theory in action. This is because in my experience, to understand something properly you need to understand not only where it came from but how it's properly applied.
I normally draw up sheets with all the vital information about a topic for the student so that they have something they can refer to quickly to find what they need. In the past I have set a few problems for the student to do in between lessons and we would then look at them together the following week, and of course I am happy to go through problems together that the student is struggling with.

Personal Description:
I have moved to North Devon in the last year and am setting up a Tutoring Business alongside training as a Psychotherapist. I have worked with children for 14 years and have a lot of experience with them and very much enjoy teaching them. The feedback I have had so far is that their child feels much more confident that then builds a good foundation for developing their learning skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Primary School teacher for 9 years.

Tutoring Approach:

Please see above in my "About myself" section.
I work with each child as an individual. As each child is different, they have a unique approach to learning that I am willing to find out and use. I have a relaxed style but we cover a lot in the time we have and I have started to see a change after a few sessions.

Personal Description:
I am a Maths/Physics Graduate with over six years experience tutoring Maths and Physics to A level, and all three Sciences to GCSE level. I am enthusiastic and committed to my student's learning, and I believe that with the right support they can gain confidence and achieve the results they would like. I enjoy working with my students and being a part of their progress and seeing them achieve good exam results. I am also a classical violinist in my spare time (If I get any!) and play with various local orchestras, e.g. the Enfield Chamber Orchestra.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching most modules in A level Maths and Further Maths: Core 1 - 4, M1, M2, M3, M4, S1, S2, FP1, FP2 and D1, and tutoring students studying for all the major exam boards - Edexcel, OCR, OCR MEI and AQA. I also have experience teaching Physics A level for the following exam board syllabi: AQA, OCR A, OCR B and Edexcel. In addition I have experience in Teaching BEng Undergraduates at Middlesex University.
For GCSE level I have experience tutoring Higher and Foundation Tier in Maths and Sciences to students with differing abilities and learning styles, and to students with Special Educational Needs e.g. Dyslexia, Asperger's, Dyspraxia, ADHD and Dyscalcula. I have tutored Core, Additional and Further Modules (triple Science) for all Chemistry, Biology and Physics.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to consider each student individually and assess their needs through talking to them about their work so far, and to monitor their progress as they work with me. I will always work at a pace that suits each individual student, making the subjects interesting, fun and accessible for students so they will learn more easily and remember more. They will gain confidence as they progress far more this way. I am a good communicator and understand the many problems students face. Towards exam time we will go through all the past papers for that exam to give students extra confidence in exam technique

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Hannah. I am 23 years old and have recently migrated from New Zealand. I am a qualified midwife but over the last seven years I have done some part-time private tutoring with secondary school-aged students in Mathematics and English. I also have extensive experience in the hospitality industry and in private nannying. I have always loved teaching and enjoy celebrating the achievements of the students I work with. In my spare time I love to travel, spend time with family and friends and be in the outdoors.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified midwife but over the last seven years I have done some part-time private tutoring with secondary school-aged students in Mathematics, English and occasionally French. Most of the students I have worked with have been between the ages of 12 and 16 years. Although my experience is with the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (N.C.E.A), the New Zealand equivalent of G.C.S.E and A-levels, I have seen that most of the content is transferrable. I have received overwhelming positive feedback from the students I have tutored over the last few years and have helped them to achieve excellent grades in their internally and externally assessed examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I find the tutoring sessions are most effective when done face-to-face (instead of over Skype). I also prefer if the student has provided the content they wish to cover prior to the session (ideally this would be past examinations with worked answers), so that we can make the most out of the scheduled time. In the first meeting I like to gage how the student best learns and then use this to plan future sessions.

Personal Description:
With 7 years teaching and tutoring experience at A-Level, GCSE, iGCSE, undergraduate university level and IB, I have helped tutor over 50 private students alongside my job as a full-time classroom teacher.

I am patient and build confidence in my students, highlighting areas for improvement and encouraging progression. I tailor my teaching to suit the need of my students, considering prior knowledge, confidence, English ability and style of learning in my approach.

With a masters in Mathematics Education, and as someone who now trains teachers, I have an up-to-date understanding on teaching and changes in the National Curriculum (particularly with the new GCSEs and A-level). This enables me to be ahead of the game with knowing about teaching and learning developments, government policy in education, and other issues that affect students' experiences of mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have specialist teaching experience with girls aged 11 to 18, as well as with students who have English as an additional language (although have tutored a wide range of students, from primary boys aged 9, up to undergraduate students aged 19). I have been head of department in my previous place of work, as well as head of year, so understand the needs of students in maths, as well as holistically.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is informed by my teaching strategies in the classroom. I try to pre-assess students in order to understand where their current knowledge of mathematics is, work with the student to build a plan in order to fill in any gaps in their knowledge, and help them achieve their goals in a time frame agreed upon with the student and parents. I then evaluate the student's learning informally each session, through verbal feedback and worked problems. I generally model technique through worked examples, as well as creating my own problems based on past papers in order to prepare students for the demands of examination. Throughout the process I ensure that students are encouraged and enjoy learning mathematics, and build confidence in their ability so they feel they can (and want to) achieve.
