Personal Description:
I have recently returned home to Northern Ireland after completing my PGCE and 6 years teaching experience in Newcastle Upon Tyne. In my career to date I have worked as classroom teacher as well as Head of Spanish. I have had specific responsibility for teaching Spanish and French to GCSE level and Spanish to A-level. In recent years I have had 93% A*-C success at GCSE level and 100% A*-C at A-level.

I hold a joint BA Hons degree in French and Spanish from Trinity College Dublin, which I achieved in 2009. During my time at Trinity I spent a year "off-books" in order to teach English as a Foreign Language Assistant in France and I spent 3 months studying in Spain. These experiences allowed me to immerse myself in the cultures and improve my fluency in each language.
I love languages and have always had a passion for learning languages and teaching.

Teaching Experience:

Park View School, August 2012 - August 2016: Teacher of French & Spanish, Head of Spanish
All Saints College, January 2011 - August 2012: Subject Leader of Spanish
Queen Elizabeth High School, September 2010 - January 2011: Teacher of French to A-level and Spanish

I am trained to teach both French and Spanish to A-level, however in recent years I have gained more experience teaching A-level Spanish. I have taught Spanish at both AS and A2 level, with specific responsibilities for teaching grammar, topic work, speaking skills, essay writing skills, and the regional topic for which I developed and completed three successful Spanish Exchanges with a school in Ciudad Real, Castilla-La Mancha. To date I have 100% A*-C success rate at AS and A2 level.
I have also taught French and Spanish to GCSE level and I have carried out numerous speaking exams. I work hard to ensure that my pupils are fully prepared and confident before sitting a speaking exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe I am a friendly, approachable individual and I have been commended for my positive rapport and warm relationship with my pupils. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, however I feel that one-to-one tutoring provides the opportunity to concentrate wholly on possible weaknesses and work together to overcome and master the language.

Personal Description:
During my PhD at Cambridge in Physics (1995) and my university research career, I have helped students achieve outstanding results in Maths and Physics.

I have enjoyed tutoring since 2008. I am involved in venture capital work commercialising technology from universities in the UK and US.

I am also an author and enjoy working with all ages on English Composition and Conversational English.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience in Maths, Physics, and English composition was gained in universities in Cambridge, Nottingham and Sheffield, as both a student and post-doctoral researcher. I have been tutoring since 2008.

I have helped many students to gain confidence in Maths,and conquer the fear of algebra.

Working together, many students and adults achieve high marks and win competitions in Essay and Report Writing.

YOUNG PEOPLE 11+, PRE A-LEVEL: BIOLOGY, HISTORY, ENGLISH, PHYSICS
In typical responsive lessons, I am happy to help increase your understanding of Biology, History, English, and other subjects. I help with working through the problems and discussing them and the bigger picture. The topics become more real and easier to remember for exams. Bigger trends are discovered and the entire field starts to make sense.

ALL AGES:
I work with students and adults on TEST PREPARATION and have achieved excellent results in the following:
* SATS
* Verbal, Numerical & Abstract Reasoning
* Aptitude tests in the workplace for career advancement

ADULTS:
My work with adults on CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH has been praised for being interesting and creative, and is tailored to the individual. This could include visits to a museum or art gallery to discuss what we see, role play, story telling/writing, or even singing (a secret to achieving good pronunciation).

A strong area is Business MASTER'S DEGREES, using my understanding of business, and expertise in essay and dissertation writing:
* Research: literature review & interviews
* Interpreting & presenting data: to engage yourself & the reader
* Brainstorming: forming a strong thesis
* Organising the dissertation for a clear & persuasive argument
* The Look: making sure the style meets university requirements
PLEASE NOTE: I WILL NOT WRITE YOUR DISSERATION FOR YOU, OR BUILD ON ANOTHER DISSERTATION

Tutoring Approach:

Students find me friendly and enthusiastic. That enthusiasm is catching and my students grow to like their subject, gain great confidence, and achieve good results.

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!

I qualified as a secondary school teacher from King's College London (2000).
I have worked as an IT developer for many years.
I have worked in Hamburg and speak fluent German.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in inner London state secondary schools for ten years.

Personal Description:
As a recent university graduate, I offer a closer bond with students than most tutors due to the lesser age gap. Many exams that students struggle with are ones that I myself have taken, so I can empathise and relate to issues students face on a better level than older tutors. I graduated in English Literature from UEA with a 2:1, achieved A*AA at A Level in English, Philosophy and History, and obtained 10 GCSEs at A* to A and 2 more at B. I was educated at Wilson's School in Surrey which during my time there was consistently ranked as one of the best boys' state schools in the country, and indeed was at number 1 in the rankings for a few years while I was there.

I am currently working towards an MA qualification with a view to going on to a PhD to pursue a career in academic lecturing and tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my experience comes from being on the receiving end of teachers and tutors from entrance exam up until university, and understanding their shortcomings and failings and what could have been done better. Crucially, I understand student mentalities and what students want and need at all levels. I have tutored Year 5-6s in Maths and Year 10-11s in English so far. Since joining UK Tutors I have taught a 9 year old in writing skills and a 15 year old in GCSE English.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a fun and friendly way of helping the student to realise their full potential through going over schoolwork, practice papers and other forms of assessment - but critically, I focus on talking with and building a relationship with the student. I don't want them to see tutoring as just another school classroom with another teacher - it should be a fun and intellectually stimulating environment that they enjoy participating in. My experience has shown that if the student is enjoying themselves, they will perform to a far better standard.

I can offer high level teaching in English and History, as well as Philosophy, Critical Thinking and German to an A Level standard, Maths and Sciences up to GCSE standard, other subjects can be discussed.

Crucially, I was a master at dealing with exam pressure and good coursework - I will provide expert tutoring for students suffering from exam stress and help them to format and write essays for coursework. As I did much of the same things just a few years ago, I understand better than anyone what it feels like!

Personal Description:
Reliable and qualified Maths Teacher with 20+ years of experience of tutoring individuals and groups.

I care deeply about teaching and learning in general and the teaching of mathematics is a particular passion for me. I am a secondary school mathematics teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have completed a BSc in Accounting, an ACCA qualification and a PGCE course. I am currently studying for my MSc Education degree. I have 20+ years experience as a tutor and 10+ years as a teacher. I have also worked for an acounting firm for 5 years and worked as a company director for 7 years.

My first session is provided free of charge and I use this session to understand the needs of prospective pupils. At the end of the session, I have a frank and honest discussion with the pupil and/or their guardians. I use these conversations to listen to the concerns of the pupils and/or their guardians and present an outline of my assessment of the student's areas of strengths and weaknesses. I also suggest a course of action to help the pupil move forward.

Teaching Experience:

I have been providing tuition in mathematics for over 20 years and have been a secondary school Mathematics Teacher for over 10 years. I have tutored A Level, university, AAT, CAT, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA students in accounting for over 10 years and have 5 years experience teaching professioanl accounting courses in private colleges. I have experience teaching to individual students, to small groups and to classes of up to 35 students. I have helped four year old pupils take their first steps in arithmetic and forty plus year old students finally understand how algebra works. In accounting I have worked with 16 year olds studying accounting for the first time for A Levels or CAT or AAT and 40+ year olds who have working in accounting for a long time and are studying for their professional exams.

I have helped students gain confidence in their own mathematical ability when they have been convinced by the academic system that they are incapable of doing well in the subject. I have also helped higher attaining students to challenge themselves and aspire to become even better. Most recently my Year 7 students were the only gold medallists in the UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge in my secondary school. They did considerably better than all the other Year 7 students and even all the Year 8 students in the school who sat the same exam.

Tutoring Approach:

During the last two decades I have worked with many hundreds of students and have read research studies from academics around the world on the subject of attainment in mathematics. My own experience is in keeping with all the studies I have read about this topic. The overwhelming majority of students can do well in mathematics provided they have the confidence, the techniques and willingness to work hard. Even after only six to eight weeks of tuition, all the students I have tutored have improved by at least one grade or one level.

I tell all prospective pupils there is no magic bullet or shortcut. To achieve success in mathematics a few things are key: understanding the concept well; understanding when and how to apply it in different situations; lots of practice in applying it in different scenarios and short, regular revision sessions. So my only pre-conditions before I agree to work with any student are: a positive attitude; a commitment to put in the time and effort required to bring about the improvement in their grades; and at least one ninety minute session every week.

It is important to me that students should enjoy mathematics and look forward to their sessions with me. To ensure this I use a variety of different resources to explain concepts to students and am a firm believer in using physical and computer based study tools and aides to complement the standard oral and written tools used to teach mathematics. I also believe in linking the mathematics that we study to the real world to increase students' engagement with the topic and their understanding of its relevance. I am very patient and empathetic to my student's needs and once they develop in confidence I encourage all my students to challenge themselves regularly. Depending on the amount of time available, I usually help students cement their mastery of the foundations of arithmetic and algebra before moving on to establish fluency in statistics, geometry and problem solving.
