Personal Description:
I am a French native from near Dijon in Burgundy, I am married to a Scott and we have two children. We live between Nottingham (UK) and Breil-sur Roya ( Alpes-Maritimes-France).I obtained a UK diploma to teach 16+ and adults and have been offering Business training then French language teaching for 20 years.

Teaching Experience:

Following my UK qualification I have been teaching French language at New College Nottingham (leading to O.C.N. & E.M.F.C. qualifications), People's College (leading to A.B.C. & O.C.N. qualification), Business French (at company places: Capital One, Imperial Tobacco, Boots, H.M. Inspector of Railways, Experian, Antalis, JetPress) & privately, especially for family relocation to France. I offer tuition for:
-French GCSE, A level, University degree & teacher training tutorials.
-French for leisure including buying a house in France and relocation to this country.
-French for immigration to Canada (TEFQ).
-Preparation to Business French qualifications (TEF-DELF-DALF) from Paris' Chamber of Commerce and to the International MBA School at Fontainebleau (ENSIAD) .
-Business French teaching prior to live and create a business in France.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe that Learning occurs favorably when self-actualisation is in place. Consequently my initial approach is motivating the Learner to create his/her Learning plan with well defined & achievable goals. Reward to gain confidence is also an essencial part of my Teaching & I always explain that an "error" is not a bad thing but an important Learning Tool.
Thanks to the Internet, I am able to accurately tailor my Tutoring to specific needs with daily up-dated information. This is one of my Unique Teaching Strength.
So, if you agree with me, you are Welcome!

Personal Description:
I have a Ph.D in English literature so I am happy to tutor up to postgraduate level. I am a qualified nurse, with experience in general nursing, children's nursing, and adult nursing. I was then employed by the Disabilities Trust to work in acquired brain injury -- this opened up my field to mental health and learning disability.

In the meantime I studied my passion -- English Literature. This lead from a First Class Honours to a Masters, then a Ph.D at Newcastle University. I have taught English and drama to a variety of student ages and abilities, and my background in nursing gives me a different kind of approachable, 'can do' teaching style.

Teaching Experience:

Newcastle University -- Tuition of English Literature and Film Studies at Degree Level.

Creative Writing -- tuition to people with mental health problems and those who had recovered from illess.

Tuition to 11 - 14 year olds in Tipperary, Ireland.

Reading and writing skills with the Disabilities Trust in York.

KS1, KS2, GCSE, AS Level, Degree Level tuition at HMP Frankland, Co. Durham, (in a challenging male setting of mixed abilities)

Newcastle University -- Tuition of English Literature and Film Studies at Degree Level.

Creative Writing -- tuition to people with mental health problems and those who had recovered from illess.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, warm and down-to-earth. My tuition is very much led by the student's individual needs. We start with some of your coursework so that I can get to know the syllabus and find out what your strengths are. Then we look for the hot spots that are causing you difficulty, and work through these until you feel more confident with them.

It is important that we work in a way where both of us participate -- the last thing I want is for a student to have to sit and listen to me for an hour. That rarely helps anyone!

I must charge the full amount for any sessions missed with less than 24 hours notice.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Geography Teacher with a BSc (2i) Honours Degree and PGCE in Geography with Geology from Birmingham University in Edgbaston and I specialise in Physical Geography at Advanced Level. I gained the David Linton University prize for fieldwork. I have lived in Farnham for over 21 years ( local knowledge I believe is important especially to Geography). I am married to Martin and we have 4 delightful children, two girls and two boys aged 14-22. Our eldest two are at University (Bristol & Surrey), the youngest in the local State Secondary School. I have followed our children's education closely and encouraged them on their way, so feel I have much way of personal experience.
I have also been involved with local youth and community work during my time out of the classroom and have had extensive training in Pastoral Care seeing each person as unique & individual. I take pleasure in helping to bring out the very best in each individual and this comes with encouraging young people to be disciplined in study and to grow in confidence and believe in their own abilities, one to one tutoring/coaching plays a vital role here and has many benefits.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in both the Private and State Sectors in 11-18 schools as well recently in as a Sixth Form College, teaching Geography to Key Stages (KS) 3,4 and 5. I am experienced in coaching pupils in Geography/Geology to GSCE, AS, A2 (various boards) and IB exam levels. but am also experienced & qualified to teach science at KS 2,3 &4. I have tutored for Common Extrance Exam Level in Science and have found this to be very rewarding for both tutee & tutor. I have experience in careers advise too.
I love teaching and enthuse about my subjects, Geography& Environmental Science are so much fun, and link both the Arts & Sciences, subjects that are so relevant and topical, extremely practical and liked by Higher Education Establishments and employers alike. I work as a part-time teacher in school to enable time for tutoring one-to-one which I find so rewarding. A recent example is an A2 Geography student who was so pleased to achieve a grade "B", he worked so hard and improved substantially on his predicted D grade. He is now at University and has kept in touch.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe one to one tutoring can make all the difference for some pupils particularly when it comes to training in exam technique; dealing with individual topic difficulties; practising papers and building confidence in ones own abilities so encouraging independent learning. There are plenty of resources to aid learning out there in this day and age but often it is hard to find the wood from the trees and learning to focus and find the best for the individual is not always easy. I believe it is crucial to assess the individual student needs and learning styles in the first instance and then build the lessons from there. This requires flexibility, experience and maturity on the part of the Tutor and this is what I feel I can offer as both an experienced teacher and mother of 4 of my own children.

Personal Description:
Hi I'm Niall and I'm currently working for a reputable, local, financial institution in Swindon. I graduated in 2010 in Economics at the University of Reading. My passion to teach started when I noticed younger family members were struggling at school, mainly in Maths. I tutored them all through KS1 - KS3 and GCSE level where they gained exceptionally high grades.

Teaching Experience:

Taught Maths to students aged 11-18 at a secondary school whilst in my second year at university.
Taught Maths and English to students in Turkey at a primary school and secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

Studying and revising shouldn't be a chore and I believe I can bring to life my subjects, even economics (nicknamed the "dull science"). Everyone learns differently and there are many methods to ensure the student is on the right learning curve.

Personal Description:
I am 25 years old and am currently studying for a graduate medical degree at Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge. During the application process for this course I was required to sit the UKCAT aptitude test, where I achieved a very strong score (Section One: 730, Section Two: 860, Section Three: 790, Section Four: 730). I have recently left the Army as a Captain, having served for 4 years, including an operational tour of Afghanistan and various training exercises abroad in Belize, Brunei and Kenya. Most recently I was employed as a platoon commander at the Army Foundation College, Harrogate where I was responsible for training and teaching a platoon of 48 sixteen to eighteen year olds over the course of a year.

Before I attended the commissioning course at Sandhurst, I achieved a 2.i in politics, philosophy and economics from St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford. My focus during this degree was towards politics and economics, with a particular emphasis on British political and economic developments from 1900 right up to contemporary life.

I attended a state comprehensive school in West Sussex before I went up to university, where I took both my A-levels and GCSE's. During Sixth Form I took four subjects to A-level (Math's, Further Math's, Chemistry and History) and two subjects to AS-level (Physics and Economics), achieving an A Grade in all subjects. At GCSE I achieved five A*'s (Including Math's and Double Science) and six A's as well as an A in an additional math's qualification (FSMQ).

Outside of my studies I am a keen rugby player and have represented school, college and my battalion; I currently play regularly for Bury St Edmund's Wolves. I also enjoy trekking, picked up whilst achieving my Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award at school, which has led me on several expeditions, including traversing the entire length of the Spanish Pyrenees.

Teaching Experience:

As discussed above, my last job in the military was working at the Army Foundation College, Harrogate; a post I held for over eighteen months. During this time my responsibility was the teaching, training and welfare of a large platoon of sixteen to eighteen year olds. This included lessons on basic military skills going right through to looking at the Law of Armed Conflict and the contemporary political context of military deployments as well as offering assistance with their educational work in literacy, numeracy and IT. During this time I gained my Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector which is a formal qualification that covers various aspects of teaching theory and practice.

This teaching was delivered to groups ranging in size from over 200 people in a lecture theatre down to a one-on-one session in a classroom. There was a wide range of ability groups within my platoon, which has given me a good experience in how to tailor teaching towards an individual's aptitude and how to keep different people motivated. Overall my experiences at the College have given me a solid foundation from which to build on with my academic achievements and will allow me to offer high quality tutorials that engage and stimulate students as well as improve their prospects with regards to exams.

Alongside tutoring for exams and specific subjects I also offer sessions on all aspects of UCAS applications. Having been successful through the application process twice (to both Oxford and Cambridge Universities) I have a thorough understanding of what is required to make your application stand out and how to shine at interview. I can offer advice to both prospective arts students as well as science students, with a particular emphasis on Oxbridge applicants - including the separate application forms, interview techniques and aptitude tests required.

Tutoring Approach:

My overall approach is to start out with an open and honest discussion of where the student wants to get to and a frank assessment of where they currently are, before moving onto drawing up a realistic plan and agreeing on our respective roles and responsibilities to achieve it.

I use a coaching and mentoring attitude to teaching, whereby the student is given control of their own learning and I am there to facilitate that. I work from the belief that if the student does not take ownership of their own performance then their achievements will be a lot lower than their full potential.

Personal Description:
I am a professional actress based in South London. I graduated from the Musical Theatre course at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts with a 1st Class BA (hons) degree in 2010 and have since worked professionally on the West End and in many areas of the performing arts industry.

Teaching Experience:

Since graduating I have taught students from the age of 5 to 21 in acting, singing and dance, privately and at many Stage Schools in London.

Over the past two years I have come to specialise in LAMDA Examinations. I have a 100% pass rate with the majority of my students passing with Merits or Distinctions. I have found that taking LAMDA exams has helped my students develop their imagination and creative thinking, enhance their communication skills and confidence, refine acting skills, and expand their knowledge of plays, poems and literature.

LAMDA Examinations can be taken in a wealth of subjects (Acting, Verse and Prose, Musical Theatre, Reading for Performance, Public Speaking and Using Spoken English) they are a recognised vocational qualification which will help towards school, college, university and drama and dance school entrance. The Level 3 LAMDA Exams (Grades 6, 7, and 8 - the Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal Exams) are further recognised within the UCAS Tariff. These exams are a fantastic way to measure your progress as a performer against an international standard and to be rewarded with certificates and medals to acknowledge your hard work and talent.

Tutoring Approach:

Acting can be a wonderful way to encourage confidence and imagination in people, whether young or old, even if it not necessarily a career path you wish to pursue. While I undoubtedly have a wealth of experience in coaching for LAMDA Examinations and the professional audition field, I am also very keen to work simply for the joy of the subject!

I deliberately tailor make sessions to each individual, and have an extensive knowledge of both classical and modern plays. I choose speeches to suit each individual student and will never assign anyone a speech they do not truly relish speaking or enjoy playing the part of. It's not what acting is about for me, and besides exams and auditioning can be painful enough without being able to speak a speech you love!

I am patient, honest and approachable. I genuinely care about getting the best out of my students and thoroughly enjoy seeing them improve and grow in confidence.

Personal Description:
My name is Dan I am 27 year old male teacher. I am originally from Liverpool but moved to London to study for my Primary PGCE a little under 4 years ago. I am a sports fanatic and am always active and spend as much time outdoors as possible. When not taking part in sport I am working in a KS1 class in East Dulwich and thoroughly enjoy my time in school!

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in schools for the previous 6 years in various capacities ranging from being a teaching assistant, studying for my PGCE and also being a full time teacher.
My time working as a TA both in Birmingham and Liverpool enabled me to gain invaluable experience working with small groups of children teaching 'booster' groups to get children back to their nationally expected levels. This was a challenging yet rewarding experience as I was introduced to different approaches and methods so I can judge which approach will benefit each child I work with this included teaching a group of boys in years 1 and 2 to read.
During my teaching practice I worked in 2 schools in Peckham and also an autistic school in Tooting. Since qualifying I have worked as a year 5 teacher in Slough which was an extremely challenging experience with some difficult young boys who all responded to my teaching approach and I was able to build up a professional rapport, something that these boys had previously not had with other teachers. Since leaving there I have been working in a year 4 and 5 classes in Wanstead. This has been an enjoyable experience with a class with a wide range of abilities so has really stretched my teaching ability. Whilst here I have been working as a class teacher but also taking small groups of children and identified their weaknesses and work on them together which has had extremely successful results.
In my present school I am subject to regular teaching observations across Maths, English and Reading, where I am regularly graded good or outstanding, this coupled with a recent 'good' grading from Ofsted show that I have a broad subject knowledge range and provide engaging and motivational lessons. Having recently moved schools I have been promoted to Maths Curriculum leader and have an extensive knowledge of Maths across KS1 and KS2.

Tutoring Approach:

Since moving to London I have dealt with some extremely challenging behaviour from children based in Peckham, Slough and Wanstead. Through my time based in these schools I have built an extremely successful rapport with all children in class especially with young boys. I feel I am able to do this as I have a laid back demeanour that children don't feel threatened by but I demand instant respect and lay out my expectations of behaviour and attitude from the child from the start.
My approach to tutoring is mainly child led as I believe that a child learns best when they make discoveries of their own. I try to keep the actual teaching and talk to a minimum but will direct a child's thinking with some prompting and questioning if they are close to a break through. My main aim when teaching/tutoring is to promote confidence in a child's ability. All children have the capacity to learn some have mental blocks caused by lack of self esteem I aim to tackle this whilst showing the child easy steps and tips to complete tasks.
I feel I am an intuitive tutor who excels at finding unique and approachable ways to understand the student's needs and tailor the sessions to them specifically. As a classroom teacher at a diverse array of schools I gained substantial experience in educating children from a variety of backgrounds, and I believe I incorporate this experience when teaching individuals as well.

Personal Description:
Hi there!
I am an Italian native speaker and I have just moved to the UK with my husband.I love travelling, meeting new cultures and I adore mountains and nature! As soon as I can, I spend time hiking, skiing or just walking and relaxing in the mountains. In my daily spare time I try to spend as much time as I can outdoor or in the closest park to my place. I am friendly and sociable and I love teaching because I can always learn something new too from my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 6 years. I used to teach Italian in Australia and in Italy where I got the certificates to be qualified in Italian and English teaching (DITALS and CELTA). I am qualified and I have experience in teaching children, teenagers and adults at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I am used to teaching with a communicative approach, through games and role-plays in order to make my students able to use the target language also at low levels.
If you want to learn the Italian language in a fun but professional way, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Personal Description:
I am a recently graduated MSc(Hons) student in Mathematics with Merit, before which I graduated with a 1st class honours in Pure Mathematics, and received an honorary award from the IMA, which are awarded to the top 200 Mathematics graduates in the UK.

I am 25, fully CRB checked, and a member of STEMnet (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics network), as well as being An associate member of the IMA (Institute of Mathematics and its Applications).

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring around the West Midlands for over 3 years, and all parents / tutees who I have supplied private tutoring to are happy to recommend / provide references should you wish to seek clarification, on the quality of tutoring I am able to provide.

All students I have tutored have seen an increase in grades over the time I have worked with them, with an average improvement of 1 and a half grades!

I am happy to also offer a free first half session in order to gauge a students requirements, as sometimes parents aren't aware of this.

Tutoring Approach:

Currently offering online tutoring at 25% off due to logistical issues. ALL TUTORING DONE ONLINE CURRENTLY

I will provide materials, course guides, and encourage young students to be creative in their methods of tackling problems. I have lots of experience with working with students from the E/U borderline-category all the way up to A/A* candidates.

From the Ages of 14 onwards (Year 9+) I teach all subjects from scratch, with a view to proving why concepts exist and introduce topics from first principles. This I believe will improve retention, help pupils understand concepts better, and also allow them to remember test questions better - It really does work!

Where parents request extra work, I can provide monthly progress sheets, homework tasks, and an extensive list of past papers. Pupils are also encouraged to not just tackle past papers, but to try and understand how papers are conceived, helping them prepare for the unexpected, should it arise in their relevant exams.
