Personal Description:
Recently made the decision to take voluntary redundancy from Volvo Truck and Bus where I had been employed both in accounts and as P A to the MD for 26 years. I wish to concentrate on teaching languages which I enjoy so much.

I have a 21 year-old daughter living at home with me while studying medicine at Glasgow University.

Teaching Experience:

I have a degree in French and German and have been tutoring both children and adults for many years, although my enthusiasm has never waned.
I attended a TEFL course two years ago and am still improving those skills through an on-line course. I find this very easy and enjoyable as I come from the generation who were thoroughly taught correct English grammar and spelling.

All my pupils who take exams achieve excellent grades and I can supply references to testify to this.
Languages are fun!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a thorough method of learning languages - not the 'phrase-book style' fashionable for some years. As much speaking practice as possible is essential.

Having so many years' experience, I have many practice papers and CD's for school exams and excellent courses for adults.

Any parents considering additional help in the lead-up to exams should try to start this as early as possible. I may be expert and dedicated but I don't have a magic wand to work miracles over the last couple of weeks before an exam!

Personal Description:
My name is Hywel and I've been tutoring biology since 2002 after receiving my bachelor of science at Reading University. I have completed a PGCE (post graduate certificate of education) in further education and lectured for three and a half years in anatomy and physiology. I've always loved tutoring and helping my students so I've set up this site to aid all those struggling in biology! For the last three years I have tutored GCSE maths, having studied statistics at university. Finally I tutor in chess, teaching the tactics and strategies of the game, an interest of mine which I have brought to several private schools in the area.

I commute within 8 miles and also tutor online via Skype at £22 for an hour.

Teaching Experience:

I've lectured in several colleges, including anatomy and physiology at Afan College for four years. For the last four years I have taught GCSE maths, GCSE biology and GCSE environmental and land based science at a home education group. My private tuition experience in biology is extensive, having carried it out for fourteen years.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor lessons to student's needs, making sure revision and exam techniques match knowledge and understanding. Work is carried out by both tutor and student to ensure a rise in grades. Seeing my students enjoy their work as their grades increase is one of the most rewarding parts to tuition and I bring this enthusiasm to all my lessons.

Personal Description:
I have several years English teaching and GCSE examining experience following my degree and am currently teaching English/English at GCSE, A level and undergraduate level on a private basis. I have an MA in English which I passed with merit, and have recently embarked on a further Master's degree in Literature and Culture in 19th Century Literature and Culture.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught A Level and GCSE English in FE colleges. Following this I started private tutoring in English at all ages and levels along with some basic Primary maths. More recently my work as an English Literature examiner has enhanced my understanding of student needs and of course the requirements of the GCSE exam syllabus. As I have been tutoring for some time now I am familiar with the varying requirements of all the major exam boards in GCSE and A level English Language and English Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

The greatest thing is seeing the student gain in confidence as their ability grows. One to one tuition enables the student to be honest about problems that are difficult to raise in the classroom at school or college. Consequently the tutor can focus on the individual needs of the student. This is the philosophy I adopt in tutoring. I am very conscientious, approachable and happy to adapt to the needs of the individual student , then watch them thrive.

Personal Description:
I am a Physics graduate and trainee Science teacher with over four years of tutoring experience and a brilliant track record.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked at two different Tuition Centres where I offered individual and group tutoring sessions in Mathematics and Physics from Primary to A Level standard. I have covered the vast majority of the exam boards for GCSE and A Level on numerous occasions and I have had the pleasure of helping students achieve their potential.

I am very flexible in my tutoring approach - I tailer my lessons based on what suits YOU.

I am very happy to answer any questions you may have. Please get in touch.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing is to ensure the tutee is comfortable with the approach. I do not have one particular approach but adapt my tutoring sessions in a way to suit the student.

Whereas I understand the importance of exams and will often stress this, I find it more useful to to engage with the tutee in a way which would result in them loving the subject. This will encourage and motivate them to work further.

Personal Description:
I have been involved in computers and IT for 23 years. I was first of all a professional computer games programmer / designer before moving into my current role as an IT Solutions Architect. Over the last 17 years in IT consultancy, I developed have a breadth and depth of knowledge in IT and computing which is hard to find almost anywhere in the UK having dealt with almost all types of systems and aspects of IT.

I'm not able to teach you all the intricacies of the Microsoft Office products like Excel or Word, but I can train you in system design, system support, software development and pretty much anything in between. I have detailed experience in virtually all Microsoft operating systems and applications. I am also very experienced on VMware products. I am also able to assist your training in application and web development in C, C#, VB, scripting and assembler (68000 & 6502).

Teaching Experience:

17 years of mentoring and training junior staff on systems including Microsoft operating systems and applications.
Delivered a classroom based Lotus Notes course for Computacentre.

Tutoring Approach:

I would first of all need to know what your learning requirements are. What is it you want to know about and to what level? From that point, I would create a training plan for you to reach that goal.

Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old female. I have worked with children for a number of years now in the mainstream high school setting. I'm always studying myself, I have completed a basic counselling skills course and art-it's place in therapy course.

I'm currently working within a mainstream high school as a communication support worker, for students on the autism spectrum. I am enthusiastic and passionate about education. I want to support my students to achieve their full potential.

I am available during school holidays for tutoring during the day, or evenings and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I started working with inclusion doing art projects with students who have behaviour difficulties; then went on to be a teaching assistant supporting all academic areas on the curriculum with children aged 10-17. I can differentiate work down to very low levels and am aware of the current curriculum. I have worked with students of many abilities and was a key worker for a child who's Downs Syndrome.
I still work in mainstream but I'm now a specialist in autism, working with children on the autistic spectrum daily. I am aware of the challenges my students face with accessing work on the curriculum as well as the social side of things.

I have also supported my school by covering art lessons and helping students with coursework and homework.

I offer tutoring in the following areas:
-Reading & Writing Skills: reading feedback and writing for coursework (essay, report, article for publication, research)

-Study skills: how to read critically and how to write, making presentations, etc.

-Art: Acrylic painting, Drawings and Rendering, Making Physical and 3D Models and crafts, Sketch book, Design Portfolio ( to help developing your portfolio for college or university interviews)

-Special needs: Differentiation for any subject up to GCSE/A'level and within the arts at university level working with students on homework, coursework and presentations who have learning difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

I always wanted to be an art teacher, that's why I went to university, but over the years working in a school I realised what I could achieve by remaining at the support level. I can give more of my time to small groups and 1:1, a lot more than a teacher can as I don't have all the paperwork and other commitments to many students that they have.

My aim as a tutor is to make art accessible and give my students confidence. Over the years I've seen lots of students feel like their work isn't good enough; I can support them by teaching the basic skills and building on their existing knowledge.

I am a very patient & positive tutor who can explain concepts in a way which can be understood by my students.

Personal Description:
I am a successful local tutor and teacher with an MA in Education from Oxford Brookes University (2016), a Postgraduate Diploma in English and Language in Education from the University of Reading (2012). I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Secondary - English) from Oxford Brookes University (2007) and a BA Hons in English Literature (2006). I am passionate about my subject and enthusiastic about improving both my pedagogical and subject knowledge. With A Level clients, I often re-read the key exam texts and exam specifications in order to deliver a successful tutorial. For GCSE, I am confident with multiple exam boards but, again, I take a sincere interest in changes to qualifications and specifications. I have recently led a team of ten teachers in our delivery of the GCSE English qualification through WJEC. Part of my role included observing good teaching practice and documenting this for staff appraisals.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years experience of working in the state secondary sector as a Qualified English Teacher; teaching anything from Key Stage 3 (11 years - 14 years) up to Key Stage 5 (A Level) including GCSE. I currently teach GCSE and iGCSE English at a popular FE college for adults, returning to education, and for full-time learners aged 16+. In addition, I have previously worked as a Learning Support Assistant, at a Catholic primary school in Reading. I have also taught American children how to use movie editing packages, such as iMovie, in Maine, USA.

Tutoring Approach:

The rapport with the parent is as just as important as the tutee. In order to make a success of the tuition, it's paramount to have a good professional relationship with both. I use feedback from the tutee's parent (via a school report) and informal feedback from the tutee to create an Individual Tuition Plan which includes setting three clear targets. Depending on the key stage and ability of the tutee, this can range anything from parenthetic comma use to translating Chaucerian poetry!

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Chantelle and I am a fully qualified teacher of English as a Foreign Language. I teach General English and Business English at all levels. I am also a Law graduate (2:1 LLB Hons University of Liverpool) with a strong academic record. I am 32 and am engaged to my lovely fiancé. In my free time I love to cook, read, watch motorsport and walk my dog. I also love to travel and have travelled extensively around Europe, the USA and north Africa. I am interested in history and love to learn about different cultures.

Teaching Experience:

Although I am new to teaching English as a Foreign Language I have teaching experience gained from teaching World War 1 history to primary school children and Law as a private tutor to university undergraduates. I have also provided English language support to a number of European companies. For the past nine years I worked in a university as a note taker for disabled students, presenting lecture materials in ways tailored to their individual needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that English language learning should be practical and interactive. I understand that everyone has their own individual learning style and learning needs. Your classes with me will focus on this to ensure your learning needs are met. I always conduct both a needs analysis and assessment of your language skills to understand what you need from your English classes. I use a variety of materials and exercises in my classes to provide real life examples of English and also keep classes interesting.
