Personal Description:
My main subject area is Design and Technology which I am currently teaching in an Independent school. I am always available to help and monitor my students' progress, provide 1 to 1 support to students as and when needed so as to promote learning and progression. I always work in close collaboration with parents so as to better support my students and raise the level of achievement. I am a native bilingual with French and English.

Teaching Experience:

Personal Description:
I am married with a daughter of 24 and a son of 21. On occasion I help my husband garden for the elderly and disabled. I graduated from Exeter University in 1985. Teaching has always been a vocation rather than a job as I love seeing the 'penny drop'.

Teaching Experience:

In the last 2 Secondary schools I was a Deputy Head of Science and the Professional Tutor for the school. Whilst teaching I covered the Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 syllabus. I then had the pleasure of working in the primary sector for 6 years teaching the Key Stage 2 syllabus. Since 2005 I have been tutoring students ranging from 7 years of age to adults. Education Otherwise gave me the opportunity to teach in various homes during the day. I offer day time tutoring to fit the needs of the individual student.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is informal. I believe students learn best when they are at ease and not under pressure. If students are distracted in their own home I offer them tuition in my home. My students marks have improved by 2 grades and in the last 18 months several have jumped up 3 grades leaving students, parents and myself very happy.

Personal Description:
I am a University student currently studying Psychology at Staffordshire University.
I am reliable, friendly and very enthusiastic about teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored GCSE level and below students while studying for GCSE's as well as while studying for my A-Levels informally.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that students don`t all think the same way and what method of learning might work for one student may not work for all students. I try as much as I can to cater to individuals to ensure they get the most out of my sessions.
I believe that with the right teaching and motivation, students can gain appreciation for any subject and enjoy rather than just endure the learning process.

Personal Description:
Communication, cooperation and commitment are my key values. I know the importance of being assertive and helpful while providing French and Spanish tuition.
Empathy and a cheerful personality are my bridges to treating language learners with respect. It allows me to have a positive impact on them and see situations from different angles.

Teaching Experience:

During my teaching experience, I have learned how to establish and maintain constructive relationships during lessons, school hours, regular meetings and parents' evenings.
My past experience as a French language assistant and supply teacher allows me to quickly adapt to changes of pace while providing differentiated support. I am therefore used to constantly keeping review and updating records of learners' attendance and attitude. Therefore, a continual assessment of students' learning allows me to set them appropriate targets. So in parallel to the lessons I teach, I monitor their achievement to give them constant appropriate feedback.

Tutoring Approach:

Keeping a high quality of work is one of my other assets. To do so, I make sure I constantly review my lesson planning and assessment processes. I make constant use of my creativity, and provide solutions when improvements are required prior to or during the lessons taught. I am always searching to undergo further training to add value to the lessons I teach.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with a first class honours degree in Natural Sciences. I achieved top grades in my GCSE and A-levels, as well as winning various national academic prizes such as the National Institute of Medical Research Human Biology Essay Competition. I am currently studying graduate-entry medicine at Kings College London.

I have had a lot of practice with university interviews, especially in medicine and science. I am willing to offer interview practice for sixth-form students to help university applications.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 200 hours of tutoring experience from 11+ to GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

Although my main aim in tutoring is to help students achieve top grades in their exams, I also like to bring in relevant information from my degree and current medical studies. I feel that this helps to contextualise the subject, making it more relevant and interesting.

From previous experience and feedback, I feel that I am an approachable and friendly tutor with the aim of maximising the potential of all my students.

Personal Description:
I was born in Rome (Italy) and moved to London when I was 7 years old. I was fortunate enough to have experienced what I would refer to as the highs and lows of learning. Having been exposed to a completely new cultural and educational environment at such a young age really helped me to assess the differences and similarities of teaching styles in both Italy and England. Despite the challenges I faced when learning English, I consider myself extremely lucky as I am now able to look back upon that experience with fondness. The English educational system has allowed me develop skills I was not aware I had, I really learnt the value of education throughout the course of my academic life.

I graduated from Coventry University with a 2:1 in Sociology Ba(Hons). My first graduate job was as a Sales Administrator in an e-commerce company, 3 months later I was promoted to Customer Support Manager, and a year after that I became a Business Development Manager and Customer Support Manager (Operations Manager to avoid the lengthy description).

Having moved out of my family home at 18 I have had a broad range of work experience. Ranging from bar tending and waitressing, to supervisory and translation roles in market research companies. In the summer of 2013 I was selected for the Fast Stream Summer Diversity Internship Programme which enabled me to work within the Civil Service Commission in the Cabinet Office and provided me with invaluable experience. I am fortunate to be bilingual, this has always helped with finding work.

I undertook a foreign language teaching programme during my final year at Coventry University, which would have enabled me to teach Italian professionally. Unfortunately, due to the pressure of my 10,000 word dissertation, upcoming exams, and pressing assignment deadlines, I was unable to complete the training. However, this has always been somewhat of a regret of mine as I thoroughly enjoyed the training I was given and would have loved to have had the time to teach.

Teaching Experience:

I have always tutored in Italian throughout the years, my clients have ranged from primary school children, to secondary school students, to adults. As mentioned above, I have a broad understanding of teaching thanks to the programme I attended at Coventry University. I thoroughly enjoyed my Sociology course at university and have continued to read up on the subject as well as watching Sociology related documentaries following the end of my studies. I would love to share my knowledge with students, whether they are struggling to grasp concepts, or just need extra support.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning should be enjoyable. It doesn't need to be complicated, breaking theories and concepts down in their simplest forms and relating them to real life events which resonate with the student is often an incredibly successful technique.

Personal Description:
I am Pharmacist. I have masters in Pharmaceutical sciences from the University of Sunderland. I have taught primary school students to University students as a private tutor. I am able to make learning real to the individual by explaining the concept of different topics in a way that is practical and understandable. This method of teaching makes it easier for the student to remember more.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught various age groups. Primary, GCSE and A-Levels. (Edexcel/OCR/AQA)

Tutoring Approach:

I have learnt over the years that students learn in different ways. I try to identify how best the student likes and learn best and apply it accordingly. However I have achieved success the most by making the student understand the rational behind the solution for any challenge.

Personal Description:
I am a 22-year-old Cambridge music graduate and violinist based in Surrey. I am starting a Masters in Performance at the Royal College of Music in September 2015. I can teach violin, theory, GCSE Music and A Level Music. Furthermore I can help students write their personal statements and prepare for Oxbridge interviews.

Teaching Experience:

I have a great deal of experience in violin performance. During sixth form I was a member of the National Youth Chamber Orchestra and the Royal College of Music Junior Department. In my final year at Cranleigh School I performed Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64 with the Merriman Concert Orchestra.

At Cambridge I regularly performed in solo recitals at my college. I also played in the Cambridge University Music Society Symphony Orchestra at venues including King's College Chapel, St John's Smith Square and West Road Concert Hall.

Tutoring Approach:

I work closely with my students to help them improve their technique and musical understanding. Above all, I ensure that learning an instrument remains a positive and enjoyable experience.

I am available evenings, most weekends and during the holidays. I can provide assistance to students with existing teachers who require extra attention.

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.
