Personal Description:
Graduate with BA in English Language and Communication from Kings College London. Studied English Language, Media Studies and Sociology at GCSE and A-Level achieved grade A for each. Since university, I have been working in media / communications for well respected agencies and across several brands for the past four years.

I have been offering a tutoring service in English (Literature & Language), Media Studies and Sociology at all ages / levels for over four years and have built up a successful student base.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching English across all ages from primary school to helping adults at degree level. This includes previous tutoring experience, teaching English as a second or foreign language and teaching children in South Africa through a voluntary scheme. Along with English I can also provide tutoring in Media Studies and Sociology as these were subjects I achieved grade A in a A-level and were also a large part of my degree covering everything from grammar, linguistics to advertising. I also have experience in supporting children with language difficulties such as autism.

In addition to this, I can also support with any editorial requirements such as personal statements, CVs, proof-reading etc.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a calm, patient approach to teaching, treating each and every student as an individual with their own approach to learning which I believe is extremely important for any one-on-one tutoring. I will ensure that each session is maximised and that the progress of the student is measured on this in way that they feel comfortable with. Tutoring is about tailoring skills to suit the needs and work towards a goal, I will not place unnecessary pressure on the student or make them feel uneasy, I have 5 years experience in doing this and have built a great tutoring base so far. This is something I do because I have a passion for helping others and enjoy seeing the student make great progression with a little extra support.

I already have great experience in the areas mentioned above and this can extend to proofreading, checking grammar and other editorial requests for coursework, CV's, essays and dissertations.

Personal Description:
In all these years, I have tried to transfer my knowledge to everybody I had sat down to help with his/her economics and business exams (especially accounting and finance). I have provided, and still do when necessary, tuition to members of the family and friends.
Even in College, I have assisted friends in their maths and accounting courses, aiming at helping them understand the methodology that is behind numbers.
I have high confidence in myself that I can succeed in a private teaching/tutoring role. I have always admired young people's minds, and I believe that a teacher's responsibility is to help them both shape them and enrich them within the frame of each individual's personality.

Teaching Experience:

My current position is Lecturer in Finance in one of the leading private business schools in the UK. I am focusing in those areas that I have had a 17 year working experience. Working in the real business world for all these years is an asset for me, which will definitely help me transfer the knowledge I have gained, to younger people.
I have also been recently appointed by a secondary school, as Accounting tutor for a group of students to assist and prepare them for their A2 Accounting exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always believed that the best approach to tutoring is the pen and paper approach. That is, I find necessary for a student to practice as much as possible through exercises and problem solving. And as ancient Greeks once said: "Reviewing is the mother of knowledge".

Personal Description:
I am a current A-level Chemistry and Biology examiner and moderator and author of A level Biology exam papers as well as textbooks and workbooks. I have worked in bioscience research and more recently in life science marketing and academic conference management in chemistry and biochemistry. I am a Chartered Chemist, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and committee member of the Protein & Peptide Science Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years' experience in one-to-one teaching, starting with giving undergraduate tutorials at the University of Oxford. I have been offering private tuition in A-level Chemistry and Biology for over 4 years.

I am able to tailor my teaching style to the individual needs of the student and to make best use of online and other electronic resources to help students to an understanding of the subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I start by identifying the particular needs of the student: do they have problems with understanding some or all of the subject; are there any areas of weakness that need to be strengthened; are there issues with exam technique that need to be addressed?

Even well taught students who have a good grasp of the subject can fail to achieve their full potential through poor exam technique. My earlier experience as a Chief Examiner, responsible for setting and marking A level exams, means that I have a detailed knowledge of the exam system and how students need to approach exam papers. My current examining experience has given me an insight into how to help students avoid unnecessary loss of marks by developing clear and rigorous approaches to their answers and to develop strategies to approach individual questions so as to maximise their performance.

Personal Description:
I am a UK Law Graduate and TEFL certified tutor with more than 6 years experience teaching English to individuals of all language level proficiencies. I am also a freelance English-Swahili interpreter & translator as well as a proofreader of academic materials like dissertations, coursework, essays etc. Furthermore, I have higher basic level knowledge of French and Korean.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching on and off since 2004 then seriously took up part time teaching in 2007 and full time teaching after 2009. I have taught individuals of all proficiency levels and with different needs ranging from improving conversation skills or grammar skills to full on learning for absolute beginners.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all I like to determine the level of my students' proficiency by having a simple conversation with them and also having them read a short article/written piece so as to create my lessons to suit their individual needs and their particular level of proficiency. Consequently my approach and material changes to suit each individual student.

I usually create lesson plans according to the students' needs and their level of proficiency. I use different text books as well as online materials and come up with effective lessons. I also use lots of flash cards as they are a very effective way to remember new things. News articles, simple song lyrics etc are also ways I use to make lessons fun but very easy to remember at the same time. I use these especially for conversational purposes to get my students to learn new vocabulary and expressions as well as be more confident speaking/reading English.

Personal Description:
I am a native Italian speaker, confident, enthusiastic and passionate about teaching. I have attended the TT 4 in Preparing to Teach in Lifelong Sector (PTTLS) and the diploma 3 in Children and Young People's Workforce. I also graduated in Arts (Italian Modern Studies) and completed my MA in Italian Language and Literature in 2008 at Pisa University.
By teaching in different countries, environments and working with people of all ages, I have acquired a board experience, which allows me to identify and address learners' needs and plan in order to get the best outcomes for them. Through the way I teach, I hope to show and motivate the students to learn and understand the history and the culture of my country because learning a foreign language is not just imparting rules of grammar.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experiences include working as key worker in the nursery and teaching Italian language for foreign adults and children in London. In Italy, for two years, I worked for an organisation which specialized in helping migrants (aged 17 to 50) to learn the language and as a personal tutor for a secondary school girl with dyslexia. I have also taught a variety of subjects (including Italian language, literature, history and Maths) to Primary, GCSE and A-level students for about 10 years.

Tutoring Approach:

Through my studies and experiences, I acquired a widen knowledge of contemporary teaching methods and approaches which contribute to plan, organise and deliver high standard lessons according to learner's level.
At the beginning, I usually carry out an assessment (oral and written) for ascertaining student's knowledge of the language and learning style. Then, I plan each lesson in advance and according to the student's needs. I always prepare handouts, worksheets or quizzes that help student to memorise the concepts and me to check her/his progress. I like to use different kinds of resources in order to create a more interactive and motivating lesson every time.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years. I have 25 years experience working with teenagers in a further education colleges, with younger people in schools and latterly in adult education. I was an AQA examiner in English for 5 years and understand most examination boards' set requirements.

 Highgate School
 University College School
 Dr. Challoner's High School
 Cambridge University
 University of Westminster
 King's College

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is that I tailor my tuition to the needs of the student. I will tutor in the student's home or on their place of work. I will vary my style depending on the ability and needs of the student. I aim to run my tuition in support of the progression of my students through their subject syllabus, but I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires.

As I aim to tailor my tuition to the individual I expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their subject progressions and their individual needs. I expect students to arrive at tuition sessions with a clear idea of what it is they hope to get from the sessions.

I will provide each student with a progress log and detailed feedback on how they are performing and areas where they need to improve, I may also set work for my students to complete outside of sessions and for this set work I will offer a marking service.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 22 year old student studying Biomedical Science in Brighton. I'm passionate about science and am keen to pass on my knowledge of sciences to younger students in order for them to excel. I earned A's in all my sciences and maths at GCSE, and further qualifications at A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I've been able to help my younger siblings (1, 2 and 14 years younger) with their education, mainly with the sciences but other subjects too. My youngest brother is only 7 so it is important to adapt the way of teaching to fit his understanding.

The last 2 years, I spent half the year tutoring at primary school and GCSE level, where all students went up a grade.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to vary the language you use depending on the level and age of the student you are working with. It is also very important not to discourage the student, as I feel this does not motivate them. It's important to make them feel good about what they're doing and this will encourage them to do well.

Personal Description:
Semi-retired, experienced teacher who enjoys developing students as independent thinkers. Passionate about supporting people in reaching their goals. Patient and supportive. Current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching KS3 and KS4 Maths and Science in secondary schools; returning to teaching after working in industry where I extended my experience and skills in developing people to attain their personal and professional goals.

Previous experience tutoring students in maths at both primary and secondary level.

Whether pre-GSCE and wanting to increase skills and confidence in maths, or working towards a GCSE and wanting to secure a higher grade - my approach is to understand the student as a learner to identify potential barriers to their understanding, and then building skills through practice to embed learning. I focus this within the context of what the student wants to achieve - the reason why they have sought-out help from a maths tutor.

Personal Description:
A 1st class scholarship graduate, one of London's top specialist full-time Maths tutors with 700+ hours experience, I am consistently in high demand.

I have a consistent record helping students gain acceptance into London's most prestigious schools through the 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+ or 13+ entrance exams, as well as routinely exceeding expectations by unlocking students potential for A* grades from Primary to GCSE level.

I have earned a reputation not only for outstanding results, but also for inspiring a long-term love of learning in my students. These are reflected by an abundance of testimonials, available to read below, that validate results and a positive change in attitude towards Maths.

As a young dynamic tutor, I get along great with kids and offer a uniquely enthusiastic and imaginative approach that students respond to. My affable nature paired with my breadth of knowledge, allows me to offer the very best tuition to children of all ages and backgrounds.

My belief is that the key to long term academic success is in encouraging a genuine curiosity which expands well beyond the limitations of government syllabi, paving the way for study and understanding at the highest level.

I am kept very busy by referrals, as my tutoring families regularly recommend me to their colleagues and friends. As such, please accept my apologies if I'm a little slow to reply during busy periods. I always write back as soon as I can.

Education:
1st in Engineering from the University of Western Australia as a scholarship student
Also received academic scholarships for exchanges to New York University and University of Sydney.

Hobbies & Interests:
Music (Singing, Guitar, Piano), Sports (Gymnastics, Football, Surfing), Drawing, Cooking, Reading.

Teaching Experience:

"My son connected with him from day one. Our son was at a very low ebb with his Maths, and Daniel stepped in and made real progress. From the first lesson, Daniel helped him to find the gaps in his knowledge and was able to get him to feel that he really understood. They worked together on anything that was challenging, and Daniel made such a difference. I think Daniel is an excellent teacher and we feel that our son has benefited enormously." - S D, mother (GCSE)

"The kids are very happy with your tutoring and so am I. They tell me that your lessons are excellent, and really building their confidence. We have put our faith in you Daniel. For the first time, our daughter has started to achieve top grades. We've also noticed other positive changes; she's a lot more sociable now too." - T K, father (GCSE and KS3)

"You've got a real talent: I can see that the you communicate with my son is really special; you get down to his level, you make friends, and you really connect." L H, father (Year 3)

"I can see that you've already made immense progress in the areas where our son is struggling. I'm really impressed with how much more easily he's working things out now. I tried and couldn't help him like you have!" - S W, father (11+)

"Daniel had a broad brief of inspiring my daughter to get excited by maths. He achieved this brilliantly with charm and enthusiasm. Daniel is inspiring, cool and effective." - T S, mother (Year 8)

"You've made it so much clearer; I thought I was never going to get this. I actually understand it all now!" - B S, student (8+)

"Daniel is full of energy and full of life. It is infectious! He can explain some very complex maths by chopping the material down into much more concise ideas. Entire double page spreads are condensed into an equation and a couple of bullet points. My daughter tells me that concepts that seemed complicated now seem easy, and that working with Daniel has saved her hours of struggling with revision. And if she's interested in a particular idea, he is fully able to expand beyond the syllabus too! He is a real genius, and the house brightens up each time with his presence!" - V N, mother (GCSE)

"I wish I could live with you so that we could have a lesson every day" - T A, student (Year 3)

"I got an offer for Westminster! I'm super happy. Thank you!" - A H, student (8+)

"Daniel has been a great tutor and a distinguished role model for my son. He has been talking about his 'smart teacher' ever since. He has the gift of teaching with fun and games. Thank you Daniel" - A O, mother (Year 1)

"You are by far our favourite tutor - and there have been many! I am so grateful to you for turning our son's maths around and giving him a true understanding of what he is doing - fantastic that you were able to achieve this." - C S, mother (Year 3)

"I can see a dramatic improvement. She's so much more focused, and her work is so much better." - K M, mother (Year 4)

"C got 3A*s so she was delighted, as were we. She did particularly well in statistics. Thank you very much for your contribution to that which boosted her confidence. Very positive feedback from us. C enjoyed her sessions with you and could quite see why you are so acclaimed." - J F, mother (GCSE)

"I showed E's teacher what she's been learning with you. She was really impressed; she says they're nowhere near that in school. E is way ahead of the class. She's doing so much better this year thanks to you Daniel." - A B, mother (11+)

"The results have been excellent. Both girls got straight As. G got a spectacular 100% in the exam! She was shocked because she didn't even think she was that good at it. Thank you for all your help." - C H, mother (7+)

"My son can't stop talking about you. He tells us all about the games you played, we can't believe he likes maths games!" - A O, mother (Year 2)

"Our son is very motivated and it's the first time I've seen him 'wanting' to do well. Very much due to your lessons!" - N W, mother (13+)

"My daughter tells me that you're a super genius - brilliant at maths, music, everything. I know that she will do well with you looking after her." - S A, father (GCSE)

"Daniel scored quite a coup when he had our son teaching his own maths class a method that the school teacher hadn't been able to teach them. Now A's whole class understands thanks to Daniel's method!" - W M, father (Year 5)

"C has come out top of the set in the majority of our assessments this term. I think her confidence is now far higher." - A A, C's school maths teacher (11+)

"We had been through countless tutors with my nephew and none of them could build up the relationship. But Daniel was different it's not easy to find a tutor of such high standard and character." - A S, uncle (Year 4)

"Thank you again - I doubt you will get a clearer `before and after` demonstration of the impact you can have! In our view it is not just the quality of the teaching you delivered, but it is also the success in motivating our son to engage!" - M T, father (GCSE)

Our daughter set off for her penultimate A Level this morning saying she had never felt better prepared for a Maths exam and hoping that she would get the chance to show off her understanding of the subject.

Our daughter has been trying to get back to school after being very unwell, and he has shown great sympathy but also positive encouragement when she has been able to study.

I am hoping to use him more in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him." - C W, mother (GCSE)

Tutoring Approach:

As a maths tutor, I animate and energise every area of study, especially those areas that a student has previously considered dull and disinteresting. I always promote the most thorough understanding and spirit of inquiry, and through the unique interests of the individual, I build long-lasting connections with the most fascinating areas of each subject, forming a firm foundation to ensure that my students are able to excel well beyond my time with them.

My goal with tutoring is to catalyse independence, not dependence as most tutors do, by showing students their own potential. I know from experience that every individual has the potential to achieve great things, and I love to help my students to strengthen their sense of self worth, and travel on a trajectory towards leaving a positive mark on the world.

I'm a young, dynamic, relatable and enthusiastic tutor that loves to teach and gets a great sense of pride from my students success. I am intuitive, patient and affable with every student, regardless of background. I always endeavour to be the best tutor I can be and provide the best results for my students.

I ONLY TEACH 1.5 HOUR SESSIONS OR LONGER:
You may think this is too long for younger students, but 75% of my students are primary school students all enjoying 1.5 hour sessions because of the 15 minute fun time at the end (see below). Hour long lessons seem to end just as you are really getting into a topic and for that reason I only teach 1.5 hour sessions or longer. From my extensive experience it is clear that 1.5+ hour sessions are much more productive, comprehensive and effective at achieving results.

15 MINUTE FUN TIME AT THE END (FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS):
With all my younger students we have 15 minutes at the end for fun time where we do together whatever they want - like drawing or a game. At a young age tutoring is seen as boring and something really not looked forward to, but the 1.5 hour session with the 15 mins at the end completely changes that as they see it as I get to make a drawing with Daniel again today etc. If the session was an hour there would no time for games as you can't teach much in 45 mins. My references say I'm great with kids and prove how these 15 minutes make all the difference by making the lessons more fun, productive and effective at achieving results.

FREE FIRST LESSON/CONSULTATION:
The relationship between the tutor and student strongly affects the effectiveness of tuition so I like to give a free introduction lesson to see if we 'click' and you like the way I teach. It's also a consultation where we discuss where your child is at and where they would like to be. The length of the free first session indicates the length of following regular paid lessons.

There's nothing to lose so help your child today!

Personal Description:
Friendly, 25, Human Physiology (Hons), hard working, dedicated, passionate.

Teaching Experience:

Experience teaching in a junior school (voluntary, all subjects except music). Hosting A level 'clinics' in my free time during my A-levels and first year of university for people in need of help.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to find the individuals background knowledge and learning style. Once this is established, I will use varying techniques to help the individual learn and retain the knowledge needed within the session, as well as give them exercises and homework to improve on their own, or in preparation for next time. The different techniques will vary from repetition, to visual / sensory linking, word association, drawing / being engaged physically in an activity and much more, identifying the best learning style and using the accompanying technique forms neural connections within the brain more easily and thus allowing one to access the information needed more freely and at will.
