Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching and consider myself both easy going and approachable, whilst being firm and demanding enough to get the best out of any potential student. I graduated with a 2:1 in Biochemistry (with a year in industry) from the University York. Following from my undergraduate degree I obtained an MRes with distinction in Molecular Plant Biology and Biotechnology at Imperial College London. This was followed by a further MRes with distinction in Urban Sustainability and Resilience at University College London. I am currently undertaking an Engineering doctorate at University College London, where my research area focuses on the production of algal biomass. The work falls within the fields of Biochemical and Environmental Engineering, and I have recently obtained research grants to pursue my work.

Teaching Experience:

At university I would often take part in student led tutorials and workshops, allowing me to hone my teaching and listening skills. I currently demonstrate in undergraduate laboratory classes and lead seminar discussions within my department. This university teaching experience is coupled with considerable prior activity in tutoring both friends, family and students of all ages in scientific subject areas, with high levels of success. I am currently tutoring key stage 3, and GCSE biology, chemistry and physics.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an informal teaching style and seek to understand the particular educational requirements of each individual tutee. To this end I will endeavor to promote educational development through note taking, written exercises, case studies, question and discussion periods, as well as with independent study. When the time comes for formal examinations the learning focus will shift to past paper practice and improving general examination technique. I have a firm belief in always being approachable for any type of question, great or small and l like to foster an inquisitive relationship with my tutee.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a well qualified, BA, MPhil, PGCE teacher who is looking to branch out into more private tutoring work. I have privately tutored for many years and have experience since 1996. I have taught at all key stages and enjoy my work thoroughly. Last year (2016) my A level tutees all raised their grades by at least one and have gone off to uni. Proud to add that one in particular achieved an A* in Geography A level.
Please note that my rates are based on one to one tuition. Should you wish me to tutor groups of two or more either at home or in school I am happy to do so but rates will need to be discussed prior to my commencing work.
I now have experience of working on the E Bacc and depth studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught to A level in History for adult ed from 1998-2006
I have taught Geography to GCSE-level and A level
History in school at KS 3 and 4 AS and A level
I can also teach basic geology and archaeology and classical studies.
Classical Civilisation to A level

Tutoring Approach:

I am always keen to engage students in whatever subject they are studying. I believe in being supportive and constructive in all that I teach. I am currently working on a one-to-one project with a student with special needs.
An excellent set of results (2015) all my 10 students passed, all raised their grade levels by at least one letter. All those off to uni are about to go so I wish them all well. Three others have a year or two left at school and have asked me to tutor them over the required time span.

Personal Description:
I am a based on the Wirral on Merseyside. I have a degree in Mathematics and Psychology from University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. I am 25 years old and have spent time learning my trade in a variety of schools across the Wirral. My teach consistently at an outstanding level which has been supported by observations and reviews from senior staff.

Teaching Experience:

I recently completed my PGCE and am now half way through my NQT year. I have trained in Grammar and Comprehensive schools and have taught GCSE and A-Level. I have worked with pupils across the whole spectrum and take a versatile approach to teaching to meet the needs of each individual.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe my selling point is my knowledge of the requirements to meet individual target grades at GCSE. I enjoy teaching all levels and abilities. I like to think as I am fresh out of university I am able to relate the learning to the pupils and teach them methods and strategies to help them retain and overcome challenges.

I am patient, persistent and most of all dedicated. I believe you learn the most when you are enjoying yourself and its that attitude and approach I bring to a learning environment.

Personal Description:
I am currently working as Lecturer in Finite Element Analysis at LSBU. My education details are as follows:

PhD Aeronautical Engineering (2014)

Degree (First class honours): BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (2009)

HSSC: Mathematics (A+), Physic (A) (2005)
SSC: Mathematics (A+), Physic (A+) (2003)

Teaching Experience:

I have both Industrial and formal teaching experience as I have been giving the lectures at Loughborough University to engineering undergraduates and also I have tutored the Physics and Mathematics to number of GCSE and A-levels students.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which students feel more confident to raise questions. I like to listen to my students being at their level to address and identify the basic difficulties that they face in understanding the subjects. I try to involve the students in problem solving and present the subjects in an interesting manner with the help of useful hints that are often helpful to provoke the original thought in order to improve their analytical skills. I find myself committed and patient and I believe that such teaching skills make me ideal for tutoring. I often highlight the practical implications of the subjects where possible so that the students could relate the subjects to their future careers. I would be willing to concentrate on the specific areas that the student requests. The focus of my approach is to prepare the students for the exams by developing the analytical thinking in order to solve the problems. The deeper understanding of the mathematical sciences could only be achieved through intensive practice.

Personal Description:
I am 33 years old and married. I am a Science teacher at a well known state school in Hackney.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching whilst living in Asia. I taught English for over 5 years and predominantly through tutoring. I then began teaching I.B Biology at British International school in Shanghai for two years. I have now been teaching in the UK for 4 years and have taught OCR, AQA and Edexcel GCSE science as well as OCR AS/A2 Biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I consider myself to be extremely friendly and personable and think its very important to make sessions fun and enjoyable whilst really pushing students to achieve above and beyond their expected grades. Developing a strong bond with the students so that they are comfortable is extremely important to me. However, I also feel that students must be able to feel that they are making progress at school. As such I like to make sure that I am teaching on top of what they are learning at school. I proactively teach materials before they are taught at school so they are more able to engage and excel in the classroom. I also like to help prep students for exams by going over past papers together and building exam techniques/strategies. I like to show presentations through my computer and work though activity sheets and past papers.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of Emmanuel College, University and Cambridge, and hold a BA degree in Modern and Medieval Languages. I studied French, Spanish and Portuguese at undergraduate level, and have an A level in German.

In 2014-15 I spent my year abroad studying as an Erasmus+ student at the École normale supérieure de Lyon, where I was able to greatly develop my knowledge of French culture and spoken fluency in all registers.

I am currently completing a cathedral choral scholarship whilst I prepare for further study in languages at postgraduate level. I'm hoping to train as an interpreter.

I'm a very friendly and considerate individual, have a good sense of humour, and welcome inquiries from students of all ages and abilities!

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring English for French school students. I have also worked with school pupils in the UK, delivering talks about applying to Oxbridge, often working with Upper-Sixth-Form pupils on their university applications for languages, including conducting mock interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy teaching students, first and foremost, who are passionate about their subject, and aim to fuel the student's knowledge and enthusiasm further through tutoring.

I am happy to adapt to each student's individual needs: whether this be support with grammar and vocabulary, speaking/reading/writing practice, or additional study of the language and culture in question, I can tailor sessions to assist the students in areas where they need the most help.

Personal Description:
Hi!

After graduating from Oxford University in English Literature, I went on to do what I'd always planned on doing: becoming a musician! I'm a composer, producer and performer, playing several instruments and recording in my home studio, as well as tutoring in both English and Music.

For me, English as a subject has really helped with music, especially with writing lyrics, but also more generally by encouraging me to think creatively, openly, and critically.

Both subjects are really about feeling inspired by creativity, and the electric feeling of making something that is your own, and this is why I'm passionate about both!

Teaching Experience:

(2010 to 2013) English tutorials - During my time at Oxford, as well as being taught myself, I would often have to help students in the years below me with their work, aiding them in the way they approached their studies and wrote essays under pressure.

(2013 to present) Tutoring in music production - I have now taught several students in songwriting and music production, in particular using the recording software Logic Pro. These are lessons I really enjoy - encouraging creativity in a free-flowing and fun way, whilst teaching the music theory behind songwriting, and the complicated techniques involved in recording and mixing music.

(2014 to present) Tutoring drums - For the last 2 years I have been teaching beginners drums to a pupil, helping him to improve his technique, introducing him to new styles of music, and fostering his passion for music.

Tutoring Approach:

English - Doing well at English as a school subject, especially below A-Level, is mainly about following whichever syllabus the student is learning very carefully, and ticking all the boxes required of an essay as efficiently as possible. However, the key to improving at it (as with all subjects), is simply learning to enjoy it more. One to one tuition is perfect for this, because I have time to present the subject matter in a way that each particular student finds useful and enjoyable. I also love to share with students my love of the little things in literature, creative or critical writing that make it worthwhile - the fun in the way sentences and thoughts are put together perfectly. Ultimately, acquiring an enthusiasm for language can help with communicating in any context, whether you're teaching, learning, making new friends or colleagues, or telling a joke.

Music - I play drums, piano, guitar, and sing, but my real strength is in songwriting and producing. If you're looking for a tutor to inspire creative expression, rather than grades based instrument learning, then I'm the tutor for you! I've composed and produced over 200 songs, including music for BBC Radio 4 drama, and I'm especially adept at modern electronic music production. The key to becoming more creative in music, is acquiring a few basic tools that allow you to run with an idea as quickly as possible, without thinking about it, and to learn how to come at a composition from different angles, to prevent frustration or writer's block. Music should be fun and hands on, and it should make you feel proud.
