Personal Description:
I am 32 years old and have been teaching for the last 11 years. I live in the centre of Winchester and work in a local school. I live with my husband, 2 year old son and 2 cats.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in London for the past 10 years, whilst there I worked in Year 1, 3 and 6. I now work in a school in Winchester and am in Year 6. I lead English across the school and help to prepare the Year 6 pupils for the new and challenging in SATs for reading, grammar and maths. Working in London i had a lot of experience of working with EAL children and SEN children.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I try to make it practical and fun. I look at what the pupil struggles with and why they are struggling with it and then I try to overcome their issues. I try to make the learning as personal as possible. For preparation for SATs, I make sure they have access to a lot of past papers so that there are no questions that will throw them.

Personal Description:
I am a 31 year-old prize-winning Masters graduate in Mathematics from Oxford University, and I also hold Top Candidate Notifications for my performances in A-level maths and further maths, and another such notification for my performance in GCSE Statistics. I am in my eighth year of tutoring full-time.

I offer tuition in mathematics at each of the following levels: KS3/GCSE/AS/A2/AEA/MAT/Oxbridge Interview Practice/STEP. I have a CRB Enhanced Disclosure.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven full years experience as a full-time private tutor. My role addresses the pitfalls of a mainstream education by truly individualising it, and is perfected through thousands of hours of experience of striving to achieve precisely that. My thirst for knowledge has allowed me to develop a true understanding of mathematical concepts: I have frequently played the role of the consultant throughout my mathematical career, have been able to help my peers and students avoid the pitfalls usually associated with difficult ideas and am able to explain things from numerous angles.

Tutoring Approach:

Traversing the mathematical landscape is an art; it can be a very uncomfortable environment for some. I find it so important to make my students feel at ease and to find confidence in their maths and so important to be friendly and patient. I am not a suited, booted assessor, nor old-school, to be frank! The feedback I've received indicates that I am very successful in creating a supportive atmosphere that encourages discussion, openness and good effort.

As well as engaging with students in this manner, my aim as a maths tutor is to get my students to 'think mathematically'; to uncover the inherent simplicity in methods and concepts and to truly understand what is being worked with. It is my business to focus thought, prevent confusion and stimulate the development of good ideas. I employ illuminating explanations and navigate sticking points, and as a result maths should be considerably easier to handle under my guidance.

As well as offering support for those with difficulties or specific grade aspirations at standard levels, I can also challenge the very able as intensely as they could hope for, introducing them to the mindset, rigour and practise required for the more challenging AEA and STEP papers. At university I was lucky enough to find myself one to whom others turned with maths troubles: I have been depended on to explain advanced maths effectively for years. I am sure this accounts for two more areas of particularly positive feedback I've received as a tutor: in explaining concepts and in effectively dealing with problems as they arise.

I provide tuition either at my home in central Cheltenham, or at the homes of students within a 30-mile radius of it (dependent on particular location).

I am here to provide a complete teaching experience that in addition to ironing out difficulties and providing excellent exam preparation as matter of course, at no extra effort on the part of the student introduces them to the thought processes and insights of the professional mathematician. I have the STRONGEST sense of duty of care to my students and want every one who I work with to exceed their own expectations and the expectations of others and to walk away feeling truly proud of their achievements.

Personal Description:
I am a freelance language tutor who teaches Turkish and English as a Foreign Language. I also do translation and interpretation from time to time. I am a native Turkish speaker and have a dual citizenship (UK and Turkish) and have been living in Cambridge for 18 years.

Teaching Experience:

I also give private one to one English language lessons. After graduating from Anglia University this year I worked for a language school in Cambridge during the summer teaching IELTS exam preparation to a group of international students.

Tutoring Approach:

I adjust my teaching for student's individual needs and make learning a fun experience. As I have been teaching for more than 15 years I have a lot of materials to make the lessons interesting and I make sure that students benefit fully from my teaching.

Personal Description:
I am an organised, sociable and confident individual with a can-do attitude, I have discovered that I possess skills and attributes which are transferable within many different job roles both related and unrelated to my education. These include: Reaching targets (personal and professional). Writing memos, notes and feedback, record keeping, communication with office, school faculties, parents and carers. I speak several languages, including Hindi, Gujarati French and Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

Having working for education for 15+ years and covered various areas from: special need, controlling classes, providing feedback for absent teacher, observing health and safety of all involved people. I attend meetings, first Aid, in house and external training days. Report abnormalities, Feed back etc.
I have worked for interpreting services in a various sectors: Independent tribunal, social services, School and OAP organisation. I handle invoices to and from.
I have worked for weekend school for Children, Youth and Family University, where I supported family and children of all ages and back ground. Bought resources, issued invoices, planned lessons and delivered according to dead line.
I get on well with all ages and back ground. I work on my own and as a part of a team. I speak several languages and translate the too , for example, Hindi Gujarati, Urdu, Punjabi.

Tutoring Approach:

Students and parents both want academic success - high grades and the pride that comes with achievement. I believe any student, regardless of ability, can become a high achiever. I know from years of experience that students under perform because they have not learned the right approach or pathway to success.

Any school has the same essential components: attendance, class participation, attentiveness, homework and testing. Most teachers give students points for each category; however, simply showing up on a regular basis and "doing" homework will not guarantee a good grade. The difference between average performance (a "C" student) and high performance (an "A" student) turns on what a student does outside of class.

While no two students learn exactly alike in exactly the same manner, all students must struggle with independent learning. Where do I do my homework? When do I do my homework? How do I do my homework? Am I well organized? If not, how can I become better organized? Do I know how to study for quizzes and tests? If not, how can I develop better study skills? Students who discover the answers to these questions become high achievers.

help students become stronger independent learners by developing a customized approach to their needs, cognition and retention. Students can spend hours working very hard but working inefficiently to the point their effort fails to translate into results. I create personalized organizational plans so that students learn how to maximize time, work efficiently and retain key information not just for the short term but for the long term.

Personal Description:
Assalamu Alikum :)

I am Marwa, a female Egyptian native Arabic speaker living in Cairo. My Passion for the Arabic language leaded me to change my life & career away from Senior Software Engineer to Professional Arabic Teacher to Native and Non-Native Speakers. Simply I wanted to be closer to the thing I love most, which is The Arabic language :)

Teaching isn't just a job for me but a way to interact with people of different nationalities and to share our cultures. For me there is no happier feeling than seeing the joy of my students when they are able to use the Arabic language & enhance their understanding day by day. My dream is to share my passion for Arabic with the world.

I am very patient, flexible, well-organized, active and friendly. Also I am fluent in English. In my free time, I like reading, writing, photography, playing sports, making friends, helping others and learning new skills.

Teaching Experience:

Currently I am working as an Arabic Language & Tajweed AlQuraan Teacher for Non-Native Arabic Speakers in an Online Institute.

I have a wide experience of teaching to different ages and many nationalities. I teach Modern Standard Arabic and Egyptian and Levantine Colloquial Arabic (Beginners, Immediate & Advanced) Online and face to face.

I graduated from Dar El-Uloom College, Cairo University where I studied Arabic language (Literature, Grammar, Literary Criticism, Literature History, Eloquence & Phonetics) and Islamic Studies (Quraan, Sunnah, Hadeth, Islamic History, Aqida, Feqh, Shareaa, Quraan Eloquence & Islamic Philosophy)

I participate as a Arabic Language Teacher for illiterate Egyptians in "Life Makers" Institution & in "Resala" Institution. Also I participate as a Arabic Language Teacher for blind students in "Resala" Institution.

I have certificates in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language from Cairo University & from "Eqraa" Institute for teaching Arabic language to Non Arabs, where I have worked as an Arabic language Teacher to Non Arabs.

I have Ijaza in Tajweed of Al Quraan from "Wa Ratel" Academy. I've studied Qur'an from a young age & in my college of Dar Al Uloom. I have an experience in teaching Recitation & Tajweed Rules to Non Native Arabic Speakers Muslims.

I have awards from "Life Makers" Institution for my cooperation in the great project of illiterate Egyptians "Alelm Kwa" which i am from the first ones who established it in my city.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science College, Ain Shams University. And I have a good experience in the Software Engineering field. I am using professionally a lot of different programs such as Photoshop, Flash & Office which by i prepare my own learning presentations & materials.

I worked as a Journalist & a Literature Writer in a famous Youth magazine "Kelmtna" where i took a lot of training about writing, journalism & being creative & different. And I have many awards in Journalism & Literature from "Kelmtna" magazine, the Egyptian Women Writers Union & the Modern Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

I customize my teaching approach based on my student's needs & goals. I seek to improve the each student's confidence in using the language skills (speaking, reading, listening, and writing) with a focus on everyday life situations.

I use a wide range of learning materials to make my lessons interesting & full of fun so that the student enjoys learning, using the language & challenging themselves to achieve the success they desire.

To learn any language successfully you should practice it with a native speaker & you have me. If you have any questions, kindly don't hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my profile :)

Personal Description:
Playing the Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo and Harmonica and creating traditional Fine Art have been and are a major part of my life. Much as I would have very much liked to do, I never had the opportunity to become a Professional Performing Musician or a fully Professional Fine Artist . I have performed in public of course, and held exhibitions, but very rarely on a professional/paid basis. I have been a guitarist for over 45 years and an artist for 23 years

I studied art at the Thanet Schools of Art & the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design (the same College David Bowie went to)
for two and a half years. After that I had a twenty two year absence from art.

A change came in 1992: It was during a period of Long Term Unemployment. Whilst signing on at my local Job Center, I volunteered to go on an "Employment Action Course. In a sense this was a form of working for your benefit and was paid an extra 10 per week on top of Job Seekers Allowance. Hopefully this would have lead to work prospects, ideally in Art or The Arts. I had to report to a work placement provider who asked me what skills I had, to which I said "Art" and was assigned to a local Community Arts Center based in Gillingham Kent and appointed as a publicity designer and resources worker.

Whilst in my publicity artist role I was introduced to the then K.C.C Arts Promotion Officer Jim Shean who took interest in my art work and arranged an exhibition hire space without charge at my local library, the event was covered on Radio Kent's "Scene & Heard" Program. I also contacted the local junior school where my children attended and made a proposition if I could exhibit there. In return the headmaster asked my to come into the School twice a week and teach the children art, this featured in a local press article.

Over the years from 1992 to date I have held numerous small one man exhibitions in the Medway Towns and a little further afield and have manged to sell some (just enough to pay a few bills). In the last year or so I have been a little inactive in my art but hope to resolve that soon.

Teaching Experience:

16 years freelance one to one teaching of Guitar - Mandolin - Banjo - Ukulele - Harmonica and Basic Keyboard
Currently a Children s reading assistant for the Beanstalk Charity Project

Tutoring Approach:

Being a music teacher has at least allowed me to put my love of music to a measure of professional application, perhaps to make up for the lost opportunity and time. Being paid is a motivation, but far more importantly teaching others to play and create music is much more enjoyable, I have often gone overtime on my lessons and never charged extra. Also to be considered is the experience gained over many decades of musical struggling, mistakes, embarrassing moments during performance and how to overcome them that I can impart to my pupils. I also look forward to the pupil making sufficient progress so that I can have the pleasure to "Jam" with them.

Personal Description:
Hello - my name is Dave. I am a qualified Maths Teacher and an experienced A-level Maths Tutor. I specialise in teaching A-level maths and coaching students to attain the top grades at GCSE level.

Tutoring normally takes place at my family home in Gedling, Nottingham.

Lessons usually last 1 hour.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss availability etc.

Thank you.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience of teaching maths at all levels especially A-Level and GCSE. Over 10000 hours tutoring experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I have extensive and carefully planned resources for all the A-level maths topics which I teach. The student works at his/her own pace in order to build the depth of understanding that is essential to achieving the top grades. To a great extent the student is allowed to make his/her own mistakes, we can then tackle misconceptions and help to build confidence. Students are encouraged to ask questions to validate their understanding.

Overall my approach to tutoring is based around developing that depth of understanding and confidence in maths. This is broadly achieved by working closely with the student to build a trusting and supportive working relationship.
