Personal Description:
I'm currently a first year law student at university of bristol. I was born in China and was inculcated with traditional chinese values. I completed 3 years of junior high school in China where I spent most of my time on studies. I have a strong enthusiasm in learning languages. My mother tongue is mandarin, but through my personal effort I have become accustomed in speaking english and consider it almost my native language. I believe that speaking different languages is an excellent way of understanding different cultures, and there is only fun in learning it. I'm a very outgoing person, and through traveling, I have evolved into an open-minded individual. I am confident in giving you a fresh start of learning mandarin.

Teaching Experience:

I have provided private chinese tuitions to 2 primary kids in Singapore for 8 months during 2009-2010. They both got A*s for their chinese subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that language does not need to be taught. Confidence and passion for it are the most important things in commanding the language.

Personal Description:
I am very family orientated, being married with a wonderful son . Because of the pivotal part that my family plays in my life, it has enhanced my understanding of just what an important job it is that I do for other families, when they look to ensure that their children have the best start to life in aiming for 11+ success.

Private Tuition in the field of 11+ guidance has evolved into my passion has now become my sole occupation. My husband and I teach as a team and, together, we can now say that the past three years has seen tremendous results. The past two years has seen a 90% success rate return.

I am trust worthy, honest and passionate about my job. I know that I possess a skill in teaching to an incredibly high standard, and I enjoy making a difference to young people's lives, especially in the field of 11+ preparation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for almost 15 years now. I have worked in both primary and secondary schools. I worked full time until I had my son and then was fortunate enough to be able to go back to work part time. Recently, due to the success of my private tutoring, I have been able to give up working in mainstream schools and focus solely on my private tuition work where I work with students solely looking to go to Grammar School.

Tutoring Approach:

As engaging and as fun as I try to make my sessions, I am well aware of the crucial need to fundamentally ensure that students are prepared in every way for 11+ success.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Carol and I'm a transplanted American. I've lived in the UK for over 10 years and I absolutely love it. My daughter Grace lives in Edinburgh with her husband and wee baby boy. And my son Elijah is 24 and lives here in London, studying fashion at Royal College of Art.

I love to cook and entertain friends. I go to the cinema a lot with my son or with friends and I try to get to the theatre at least four or five times a year. I cycle everywhere, and making things look homely and inviting brings me great joy. I read a great variety of things and watch fascinating documentaries. And if I could, I'd travel the world continuously to soak in all the amazing cultures and languages and traditions of the world.

I currently tutor English to students from a variety of countries and language backgrounds.

Teaching Experience:

I homeschooled both my children for fourteen years total. If success is measured by the outcome, my children are proof of my tutoring ability. Grace went on to graduate from University of Edinburgh with a 4 year degree in English Literature and History. Elijah graduated from Northampton University with a First in Fashion Design and is now a graduate student at Royal College of Arts. I tutored every subject to them, and also taught group tutoring sessions in Geography, Earth Science and History.
When my children went on higher education, I retrained as a TESOL teacher, the highest level to teach English as a Foreign Language. I've worked in English schools here in London and taught to the FCE exam as well as privately tutoring English to businessmen and woman from around the world.
I've been teaching now for 22 years, mostly tutoring one-on-one.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everyone has the capacity to learn anything if it's taught to their learning style and consciousness. None of us sees things the same way....and none of us can absorb things by the same method as another person. It's crucial to understand a person's 'grid', or the way they learn. That only comes from observed feedback: that's when someone who is learning something new digests it and then gives it back in some way (an essay, a written assignment, or a verbal recounting) to show understanding. I call that 'the lightbulb moment'.

I also think that being relaxed and having fun while learning is so important. Good humour is a key to learning. When we are enjoying the company and the environment, our sensors are up and our receptors are open! It's a refreshing and invigorating experience, not a draining one.

The relationship between the tutor and student needs to be safe. It should feel like a safe place to make mistakes or to say, 'I don't understand.' Or to feel very, very excited about understanding something for the first time without being made to feel like 'it's about time.'

I believe in academic success, measured by passing tests, but not limited by them.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD holder in stem cell research that is published in the field.

I have a gift for explaining all things science-related and for equipping my tutees with study tools that will help them with their course of study and beyond. Enabling my students to understand complex information and concepts is my particular strength.

Photography is a passion of mine. I can help you master full manual mode, allowing you to take control of your camera's exposure and unlock your creative potential by capturing images the way you visualise them in your head.

Teaching Experience:

I have 7 years teaching experience, from working with those in professional training (nursing, chiropody) to primary school children; I have also taught at university level.

Having taught at the highest level (degree), I am skilled at helping students quickly reach those 'light-bulb' moments where things that were once difficult finally just click into place.

My teaching experience has included helping with homework assignments, examinations, essay writing, experimental design and write-ups as well as evidence appraisal and the writing of proposals.

Tutoring Approach:

Whatever you require help with, I tailor my lessons to suit you and give you all the extra support you need to succeed.

I enjoy learning the way you learn and seek to adapt how I teach to suit your style. Each learner has a preferred learning style from visual, kinaesthetic, tactile, analytic to auditory. Understanding this is key in helping your long-term learning.

Personal Description:
A PhD student currently writing up my thesis in Chemistry - specifically in the synthesis of new compounds to be used in organic electronics. I have a BSc Hons in Chemistry and a MSc in Drug Design and Discovery.

I am based in Glasgow, and I am an easy-to-speak-to, laid back person. I am passionate about learning, in particular in learning science. I believe that everyone should have access to learn at least a basic level of science as it drives the world around us today.

I have a wide range of experience in traditional chemistry through to current modern techniques and methods. I am well versed in both theoretical and practical chemistry. My main field is synthetic organic chemistry with a scope towards materials (solar cells in particular). Through my studies I have also covered a range of physics, maths, and computing, as well as research methods and planning.

I am highly motivated, passionate, and organised. I look forward to helping you achieve your own goals whether they are to improve a grade, pass a test, or just learn for pleasure or personal interest.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at undergraduate level, and I have demonstrated and taught in undergraduate chemistry labs, including handling assignment marking and feedback.

During my PhD I demonstrated in the undergraduate teaching laboratories, where I showed students how to correctly perform their experiments. I would cover the theory of the experiment, explain why it was important, highlight any important aspects and explain the best approach to completing the work. I would then receive and mark lab reports, giving feedback and providing any required additional help or details that each student required. Additionally, during my MSc I tutored an undergraduate student one-to-one because they were unhappy with their grade (a grade C). After some weeks of tuition the student attained a B+, missing out on an A by a few percent.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to ensure the student understands what the underlying theory, reasoning, and application of the topic is. I don't think rote memorisation is a particularly strong approach, especially without ensuring the basic foundations have been understood. I am happy to work towards achieving an improved grade, passing an exam, or simply learning for personal interest.

I have 17 year teaching experience and in that time, have taught children up to the age of 13; helping older children prepare for 13+ Entrance Public School Entrance exams as well as teaching younger children to master phonics, basic reading skills and spelling. I am an experienced SATs marker enabling me to help children to prepare for these exams. I have worked closely with learning support departments in order to support and extend those children with difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. I have achieved part one of a Diploma in Teaching Children with Specific Learning Difficulties. I also have a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language which means I have an in depth knowledge of English grammar as well as an understanding of how teenagers and adults learn.

I am an avid reader and writer but a mum to a reluctant reader so I understand how difficult it can be to get children to read. I do, however, believe that there is something for everyone.

Additionally, I can teach French and German. I have taught them both to GCSE level and studied both languages to degree level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 17 years and was most recently a teacher of years 5 to 8 English and French at a well-respected private school for children aged 5 - 18. Prior to that I taught at an independent prep school where I was a class teacher as well as a member of the Senior Management Team and Head of Girls' Games. I have an excellent understanding of all aspects of child development and the need to make learning meaningful and fun. I am passionate about reading as well as all types of writing and am a member of the National Handwriting Association. I am also able to include IT in the classroom when necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends entirely on the needs of the child. After an initial consultation, I would be able to offer support with reading and comprehension and/or writing (whether it be handwriting or speed of writing - or both). It might be a case of helping your child to understand English grammar as well as teaching them techniques to enable them to include it effectively in their own writing. If it is a case of preparing for forthcoming exams, then this can be done by using past papers as well as my own materials devised after extensive experience of helping children prepare for all types of exams. You may just want some extra support for your child over the summer and prior to the start of a busy new term. Whatever it is, it will be done with empathy and enthusiasm.
