Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

From September 2017 I will be studying for a Masters in History through the Open University.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a Mathematics graduate from Cambridge University. After graduating, I worked in the IT industry, initially for a large corporation and then for an independent software house. I later formed my own company, specialising in developing applications for small- to medium-sized companies. I used the logical skills developed through studying Mathematics in my work as Business Analyst and Project Manager.
Since 2009, I have been tutoring Mathematics full-time. I also study extensively to keep up to date with the latest mathematical ideas and educational trends. I ensure that I am familiar with the most recent syllabuses.
Outside work, my main interest is music, particularly singing. I belong to two choirs.

Teaching Experience:

I teach exclusively one-to-one, as I believe that provides the best outcome for learning Mathematics. I am also available for home schooling: please contact me for rates.
In the six years that I have been tutoring Mathematics, I have taught the following topics to over 200 pupils on a one-to-one basis:
GCSE - Edexcel, AQA and iGCSE - legacy and 9-1

A-Levels (AS/A2) - Edexcel, AQA, OCR/OCR-MEI and Pre-U - legacy and new syllabus:
Core
Mechanics
Statistics
Further Pure
Decision
STEP
Oxford Maths Admissions Test
Advanced Extension Award

International Baccalaureate (IB) - Standard and Higher

Undergraduate topics including:
Bayesian statistics
Business and accounting Maths
Complex variable
Cryptography
Foundation requirements
Laplace & Fourier transforms
Linear algebra
Mechanics

My GCSE and A level pupils have come from local schools including:
Tiffin School
Tiffin Girls
ACS Cobham
Teddington
Esher College
Kingston Grammar
Hinchley Wood
Hampton
Epsom College
Sutton Grammar
Coombe
Surbiton High
Kings College School Wimbledon
Richard Challoner
Southborough
Hollyfield
St John's Leatherhead
Lady Eleanor Holles
Reed's School
Claremont
Marymount
Latymer
Kingston College
Most of my university pupils attend Kingston University, Surrey University, or one of the University of London colleges, though many come for intensive lessons in the holidays from other universities to reinforce the topics they are learning, or to prepare for re-sits.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring the teaching approach to each student's needs and individual learning style. For school children and university students, I discuss their aims with them - and with their parents, if required - to determine what topics need additional tuition and then to work out the appropriate programme. I advocate continuous assessment to measure the student's progress. Closer to exams, the pupils will work through old papers. At this stage, strategic choices may be made to focus on the pupils strengths.
For adults, I work with them to develop a personalised programme to enable them to achieve their goals. This may mean working towards a specific qualification.
I have great passion for and a deep knowledge of Mathematics. My aim is always to get my students to enjoy the subject. Most importantly, they are encouraged to gain confidence in their own abilities by building on what they feel comfortable with. I believe that the right teacher can undo wrong learning very quickly.
Lessons take place at my students' homes, or at my home in Kingston, where I have a quiet study. Assignments and homework are an integral part of my teaching: there can be no improvement without practice.

Personal Description:
I have a very high level of Mathematical/Accounting/Business/Economic understanding and very good explanation of the subject areas I teach. I am from a Banking and Finance background and enthusiastically share the knowledge I have gained over the years.

I am a passionate person hoping to steer students towards the level they desire.

Teaching Experience:

I teach Primary up to University level students whom have a thirst for knowledge. I have been teaching for a few years and have seen students excel from a predicted fail to the highest possible grade.

I provide one-to-one tuition and also give lessons in groups in which the prices are negotiable.

I get the best out of students and allow them to embrace the topic areas they are weakest and help them develop their strengths in a way that is enjoyable and focused at the same time.

With my services you will be receiving:
-High level teaching for optimal enhancement in Mathematical/Economic/Business/Accounting ability
-Highly Structured lessons
-Provision of Past Paper including Mock Exams (when applicable)
-Student Evaluation sheets after every lesson
-Extra Printing Resources

-Advice with academic and career choices

Tutoring Approach:

I use different techniques to enhance and enjoy learning. By adapting my teaching style towards the personality's of my students, I believe this helps students reach a higher level of knowledge and success. The approach to teaching used is steered using positive reinforcement.

I am efficienct and practical in explaining problems and solutions due to time restrictions. Using a diverse range of structure and use of resources, the student will achieve a better grade than when they first started.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate (2012) of the University of Bristol where I studied Biology and obtained a high 2.1. In addition to my degree, I have studied a wide range of subjects during my time in education, within the humanities and the sciences. The inspirational teaching that I have received is one the mains reasons for my achievement of high grades, as well as enthusiasm for my subjects. I believe I can share this enthusiasm and my knowledge and offer your child the help they require.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst at school I was part of a reading scheme where a group of 10 students visited a nearby primary school. We read to individuals on a 1 on 1 basis and helped them to develop their own reading skills. I have been recently accepted onto the TeachFirst scheme, a two-year teaching placement, which will commence in 2013. To gain the experience I will need for this and the present tutoring I am doing, I have spent a lot of time in my old secondary school shadowing teachers and siting in on classes. I have also been coaching hockey at my local club since I was 16, which has allowed me to develop my communication skills.

Tutoring Approach:

In my opinion, a great tutor is not only one that can engage and animate their pupils, but can also adapt their teaching style to meet the needs of the individual. I hope that not only will I give your child the support they require, but he/she will also enjoy the teaching process.

Personal Description:
My name is Dave, and I live in the Inverness area. I have a degree in History (Hons), and my area of expertise is UK and European social history from 1700. I have also studied US history, Scottish history, and European political history.

I also have a Masters Degree in Employment Law and Practice through the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.

In my spare time I coach school football, and have done so for 8 years.

Teaching Experience:

While I have no formal teaching experience, I have home tutored several children of friends. I have also coached hundreds of children up to age 16, in football lessons. As head coach for the local school, I have taught not only technical skills to children, but just as importantly, instilled a sense of self belief, and confidence, in their abilities. The confidence to express an opinion is vitally important and I do believe that, when it comes to history, belief in ability in expressing one's own viewpoint is crucial.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to encourage self belief, and achieve this through a relaxed, proactive approach to the subject matter. I can critically analyse a students written work, and suggest ways of making those all important changes in order to achieve higher grades.

Personal Description:
I have been involved in computers and IT for 23 years. I was first of all a professional computer games programmer / designer before moving into my current role as an IT Solutions Architect. Over the last 17 years in IT consultancy, I developed have a breadth and depth of knowledge in IT and computing which is hard to find almost anywhere in the UK having dealt with almost all types of systems and aspects of IT.

I'm not able to teach you all the intricacies of the Microsoft Office products like Excel or Word, but I can train you in system design, system support, software development and pretty much anything in between. I have detailed experience in virtually all Microsoft operating systems and applications. I am also very experienced on VMware products. I am also able to assist your training in application and web development in C, C#, VB, scripting and assembler (68000 & 6502).

Teaching Experience:

17 years of mentoring and training junior staff on systems including Microsoft operating systems and applications.
Delivered a classroom based Lotus Notes course for Computacentre.

Tutoring Approach:

I would first of all need to know what your learning requirements are. What is it you want to know about and to what level? From that point, I would create a training plan for you to reach that goal.

Personal Description:
Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

Hi there and thanks for viewing my profile. My name is Paul and I have been studying, researching and teaching politics since 1988 when I first started my undergraduate degree at Leeds. I gained my first degree with first class honours at Leeds, completed a PhD in Politics at Leeds in 1998 and subsequently lectured, tutored and researched in Politics / Political Economy / International Relations and European Studies at the University of Portsmouth from 1998-2015.

I took a career break from September 2015 to develop some personal projects but continue to offer tuition in politics.

My primary specialism is in the crossover between Politics and Economics (Political Economy) in a theoretical, international, global, European and policymaking context. Many students taking Politics or IR degrees struggle with the economic components of their degree, perceiving it to be a different and mathematical subject...Economic ideas and concepts are in fact central to any deep understanding of politics and IR but, happily, they are very much easier to understand than many students assume. One of my biggest strengths as a tutor is to be able to make economic ideas accessible, interesting, engaging and relevant to the non-specialist and to the student of Politics / IR. By connecting the economics very clearly to mainstream areas of politics such as political thought and public policy and by focusing on the non-mathematical aspects of economic thought, I have been able to help students overcome their initial fears about political economy and come to see it as both the fundamental - and fun - part of all social and political science .

In addition to my specialisms in PE/IPE, I have broad and deep subject knowledge having taught across the full range of Politics, Government, European Studies and International Relations subjects over the years so it is very unlikely that you would be studying something in this broad area of political and social sciences that I would not be able to cover.

And: I am very flexible and approachable: just ask if you have any queries at all!

Teaching Experience:

Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

I was Principal Lecturer in Politics/IR at Portsmouth University, Associate Head of the School of Social Historical and Literary Studies (2003-11) before moving up to a Faculty job. Overall I taught in HE at Portsmouth from 1998 until September 2015. I decided to take a voluntary career break in 2015 to develop a variety of my own pet projects but I continue to offer tuition on a private basis across the social sciences to undergraduate, postgraduate and A-level students.

I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and previously the ILT since 2001, and am currently applying for Senior Fellowship status.

In addition, I am an experienced personal and study skills tutor, a role I always took seriously at University. I see the role of a tutor as partly that of a 'coach', facilitating as much as possible your own development as a student. I honed this approach over time as a lecturer and it was especially useful in dissertation supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at Portsmouth I was nominated for and won several teaching awards including 'Most Innovative Lecturer' and 'Best Feedback'. A major strength of my teaching is that I give very positive, encouraging and constructive developmental feedback on your ideas, plans and writing combined with broad and deep subject knowledge.

As a lecturer I am highly engaging, dynamic and open and I have a gift to explaining complicated concepts in very clear and accessible ways using stories, metaphors and analogies. Indeed I am currently writing a book in which this approach is used to teach Economic concepts to non-specialists without any numbers at all - purely through stories, analogies and metaphors.

In addition to offering private tutoring I am also an accredited trainer and life coach, as well as a proof reader. So the skills sets I bring to private tuition are more diverse than just lecturing / teaching although of course I also do have that extensive classroom and tutoring experience you require (18 years!).

My main specialisms are: international and global political economy, economics for non-specialists and social scientists, public policy, British politics, comparative politics, political ideas and theory, political ideologies, international relations.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Laura, I am 31 years old and a fully qualified, Paediatric First Aid trained, DBS checked primary school teacher currently working part time at a school in Gillingham, Kent. I have been teaching for eight years in schools in Medway, and working with children is my passion - nothing beats that `lightbulb` moment when a child grasps a new concept, it is the reason I teach... and I particularly enjoy tutoring because you get to see that progress close-up.

I have grown up in Medway and attended Fort Pitt Grammar School myself, graduating sixth form in 2003 with glowing A Levels and then attending Lancaster University, where I studied English Literature and achieved a 2:1 BA.

After a year of soul-searching, I became a teaching assistant at Riverside Primary School and just fell in love with primary education - I loved helping children achieve, and more than that I loved designing lesson plans and ideas that I knew would inspire them. By the end of that year I had committed myself to a lifetime of helping little ones learn, and the next year completed my PGCE at Canterbury Christ Church University. I got my first teaching job, and then began tutoring shortly afterwards.

I aim to provide a high quality, professional and bespoke tutoring service, catering to the needs of each family and child. I specialise in 11+ tuition and have seen good results each year from the families I have tutored, some of whom have provided references for me to use.

If you choose me to be your child`s tutor, I can guarantee you my dedication, my passion for teaching, and my promise that I will do the very best for your child. Please do not hesitate to get in touch and discuss your specific requirements.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring children since I qualified as a teacher in 2009, mainly helping students to improve their test scores for SATS and the Kent Test/11+ examinations. However I am flexible and am able to work to a child`s individual needs, such as working on subjects they struggle with in new, engaging ways that help them with their recall and enjoyment of the topic. I am known for getting good results and seeing quick progress.

As an English Literature graduate and specialist, I am also able to help coach older children working towards their English GCSEs.

Tutoring Approach:

When I first meet a family, I provide the first session free of charge. I use that session to spend some time with the tutee, getting to know what subject areas they have difficulty with and doing some basic skills tests to see what areas I will need to be covering. I then spend some time discussing a bespoke curriculum with the parents, outlining my plans for making progress, and if we are in agreement then the tuition goes ahead. I do recommend that I see my students at least once a week to make good, continued progress, and often leave them with games or resources or flash cards to keep our learning fresh in their minds!

From my own home I am able to use a lot of visual aids and hands-on resources to teach - just things I have accumulated in my years as a teacher! I have a dedicated working station that will be set up ready for learning to begin. If I come to your home, I ask that you provide a relatively quiet area of the home where your child will be able to concentrate without distractions such as television or toys. I consider myself to be encouraging, patient, and understanding with the pupils I teach - but on the other hand I am also quick to challenge them, stretch them, push them. I teach them to believe in themselves first, and the rest comes naturally.

If you feel I would be a good fit for your family, please get in touch.
