Personal Description:
Hi, everyone,The academic year is now a term old and things are ticking along nicely for almost all my students of 2016-17. Sadly two have had to drop out of school/college studies because of personal issues which is sad, when the time is right, these two very bright individuals will come back to studying, I'm sure.

I am more busy than ever this year but do have perhaps one or two spaces for students keen to just improve or to transform themselves and their fortunes. However bad things seem, I can show you how make the best of your talents.

TWO EXAM PAPER NOTICES

A couple of examination paper notices.

1. I am now OCR trained for the new AS level source/essay paper. Obviously this has given me a clear insight into how it's marked and how students need to approach it to be successful.
2. Secondly, the ED Excel Y13 A2 sources & essay paper (three secondary sources): I worked with four students on this last year and achieved spectacular results (these pupils can be contacted; some won't be able to put referees up here because I found all 4 of them via word of mouth and the UK's other major tutoring site). I'm very happy to report that I worked hard and thought hard on refining my advice on the paper and it has clearly paid off handsomely. Do contact me for details; I can pass these on to you prior to your making a decision on whether to engage me (or not as the case may be). Naturally anyone re-taking the A2 paper in 2017 can benefit from this. The new EdExcel History exam has a similar paper so this year's cohort of Y13 students should be able to benefit too.

Note. Because I'm away for the next 3 weeks carrying out research in London and Reading for my PhD I will not be able to begin lessons this year until the last week of September.

Plus:

Important policy change! If your young one or you, the student, is/are one who is not prepared to be coached and trained as our Olympic athletes are - and by this I mean that the performer puts themselves in the hands of the coach and doesn't try to tell them how to do the job - then please do not get in touch: simply pass on to another tutor somewhere else on this site.

And now, The Pitch!

So, my name is Craig, a very dedicated one-to-one tutor of History, Politics and English. I offer an exceptionally high level of expertise as a history, politics (and English) teacher, teacher of essay writing, exam writing and exam taking. This is based on well over two decades of experience in schools and in homes. Though I have been teaching a long time, I am continually striving to improve the quality of my work, constantly analyzing the effect of my advice on performance and trying to perfect the art and craft of the job.

When not tutoring, most of my time is spent working (hard!) as a student too! I am just about to begin the third year of my PhD, supervised by Professor Tony Collins of De Montfort University, Leicester, undertaking research in 20th century British history. (Rugby fans might like to note at this point that Tony is the number one rugby historian - of all codes - in the world. All his books are very well worth reading.)


I am exceptionally well qualified. I have an MA (2011) in History and am now two years into my doctoral studies. I have written fiction and non-fiction. I have had experience in being an A level marker with an exam board. I have had long experience in teaching and preparing whole History & Govnt. & Politics year groups for A level, producing outstanding results.

I take on all types of students. Some need a lot of training, some need to be dragged away from a collision-course with failure, some need finessing, some need waking up, some need inspiring, some need a boost in confidence; some need more intellectual stimulation; all can and do improve their writing.

My chief strengths are: 1. I know how to teach students to write. 2. I know how to prepare them for exams. 3. My methods are clear, simple and work beautifully. 4. I care very much about the progression of my students. 5. I treat my work with them with the utmost seriousness. 6. But I'm a human being with a sense of humour! 7. I am very, very experienced. 8. As a parent of three children who have gone through the school and university experience, I understand what both the student and the parent is going through.

I am very happy to work with students online. I have found it to work extremely well.

More on my current research project...
I am currently working on doctoral research into the BBC, sport and social class, 1922-64, with Tony Collins at De Montfort University, Leicester. He is the director of DMU's International Centre for Sports History & Culture, a department of world renown, and the leading British powerhouse of sports history. I am very proud to be working with Tony and within the department. Undergrad students should note that I am working under one of the world's best historians, a 3-time winner of the prestigious Aberdare Prize for Sports Books.

Becoming a student again, beginning with the masters degree course at De Montfort University in 2010 has really helped my teaching. As well as keeping on top of developments in academic history. I am much better read! I know more! It has also taken me right back in touch with what it feels like to be a student and all that follows from that. It has also enabled me to extend my tutoring potential to undergraduates and masters students.

I'm happily married with 3 children fully grown (it's only their father who's lagging behind).

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 24 years in secondary schools in Bromley, Kent and Derbyshire where I now live. History was my specialism but I was head of Politics for a number of years in the last part of my school career. I also taught Geography, Economics, English and R.E.

Since beginning to tutor students, I have taught history, Government & Politics and English (including basic literacy skills to a young person with dyslexia). Courses taught have mostly been those at GCSE and A level.

I have taught a wide range of topics within French, German, Russian and British history. The list includes the usual suspects: causes of World Wars 1 and 2, Hitler and the Third Reich, the French Revolution (and its causes) and Napoleon; also Tsarist Russia, the Russian revolution and Stalin as well as the European Reformation, France in the 16th century, Louis XIV and aspects of Irish and Chinese history and 19th century France, plus 20th century USA. politics (Boom and Bust, New Deal and Post-War Boom, and also the Witchcraft Persecution in Europe (1550-1680).

In terms of British history I am very much up to speed with all aspects of its 20th century political history (high politics, parties, electoral history, social history & economic history, right through to the 21st century, in fact); I have also taught most aspects of 19th history, social, economic and political. For the last decade and a half of my school-teaching career I taught the A level course in 16th and 17th century - The Tudors, James I, Charles I, Causes of the English Civil War, Charles II, James II & the Glorious Revolution, the reigns of William & Mary & Queen Anne.

I have recently added 19th century British politics (Reform Bill through Peel, Palmerston, Disraeli and Gladstone to Salisbury) and Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe to my "roster" of topics.

Since becoming a PhD student my expertise level in terms of content knowledge has leaped forward in 20th century British history. However...

...it isn't the historical content of the course that matters so much: technique is the key; know-how; how to write; how to take an exam; how to prepare for the whole exam period; how to approach the whole thing mentally, psychologically; how to be the best you can be; how to be successful - end of story!

I have worked with students on exam preparation and revision, coursework planning and execution and essay writing techniques. It is here that the battle to improve and to reach a fulfillment of potential, often with the reward of high grades, is usually won.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't tinker around the margins of issues. I give students something all those who come for help require: a method to use to dispose of the problems posed by the issue of writing that dreaded thing: the essay! Not a tinkering round the edges of the thing, a tip here, a bit of advice there, but a comprehensive yet simple and absolutely clear set of actions and principles through which the student can fulfill their potential: show the examiner what they know and understand of the topic.

Following on from the above, my approach to tutoring begins and ends with the drive to be successful. If I did not unfailingly improve students, help them to achieve the grades they want and need I would not be writing this.

In between comes what we might describe as philosophy and methods. It's hard to write about methods without immediately mentioning what I suppose might be my strongest "offer" (I don't much like that word but there, I've used it). As a schoolteacher I developed a unique but simple method of essay planning and writing that achieved stunning results. So successful has it been over 20 years that I am astonished that no one else seems to have found it. But in my experience up to February 2013 no teacher has. Essay writing is still something that many, many students find difficult and confusing. It really does not need to be this way.

Obviously content issues are hugely important and here I rely on my communication skills which have yet to let me down! These, naturally, go hand in hand with a knowledge of British and European history across a variety of years which has grown over recent years particularly through my MA studies, my PhD research and through working with students on a range of historical periods, topics and people. I find myself to be adaptable to different types of students. I am able to adapt my language and my technique to fit the situation. I am also somewhat stubborn in that I never give up on solving a problem. If we have to go over time, so be it!

Finally, some more of my personal philosophies of teaching. I believe that students generally do not achieve their potential. With each student I aim to take them to standards (and grades) that they did not think were possible. Without exception I push, push and push until we run out of time as we inevitably do. I also do not believe in lost causes. Much can be achieved in a very short space of time. I have seen this happen over and over again.

There is much more to be said but that, I hope, will do for now.

Craig

Personal Description:
I was born into a French-speaking family and have spoken French my entire life. I have a BA from the London School of Economics in French and Linguistics. I have also lived in France for several years. I have taught French privately for over 20 years and many of my students achieve very high standards. I am very dedicated to my students and try and get the best out of them. One mother with five children of differing ages from 6 years old to 18, where the children were attending Harrodian in Barnes said that her children told her I "was the best French teacher they ever had" - that works for me!

Teaching Experience:

Teaching privately French for over 20 years from beginners to University students as well as adults has given me a great deal of experience across different goals and varying levels. I teach spoken French for those who only want to simply speak the language as well as grammar for those who need to take exams. I work with University students to achieve top grades in dissertations and essays or oral exams. One of my recent students was told by her lecturers she would get a 3rd in her degree ended up getting a 2:1 - not bad eh? I love French literature so if you are studying a piece of literature, I will be able to guide you through the book. I sing with some of my students as I find singing is a wonderful way of learning a language especially where vocabulary is limited. Other students need to listen to French radio in order to accustom the ear to current spoken language and we work together to understand what is being said.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by assessing the pupils strengths and weaknesses and then plan lessons to suit the individuals needs. The most important aspect is for the pupil to enjoy the lesson so learning French is a pleasure and not a chore. I also spend time teaching exam techniques as these are as important as studying the language itself.

Personal Description:
I recently obtained a masters degree in Mathematics from Queen Mary University and have been working as a Maths tutor since February 2011. As a result, apart from familiarising myself well with the UK system and curriculum, I have further developed my experience and teaching skills.
I'm very friendly and passionate with what I do. I'm enthusiastic with teaching and maths and trying to pass this feeling to my students as well. Maths is not plainly something you have to learn but something fun you can learn.

Teaching Experience:

Have been working as a maths tutor for pupils taking common entrance, GCSE, IGCSE, A-levels and undergraduates, for the past three years.

Below there's a selection of past and on going clients:
•Leyla: (17 yo) Home-tutoring for Maths AS-level. Focusing on C1, C2 and S1. Layla achieved an A in 2012.

•Isabella: (18 yo girl) Home tutoring from IGCSE to A-level C1,C2,C3,C4,M1,S1; managed an overall B and successfully went on to study at Surrey University

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to create a well balanced relationship with pupils. I set clear targets for my students and expect them to develop throughout our sessions. Additionally, I emphasize on the suitable approach for each individual in order to have the best results possible. Finally, I consider humour an essential part of my sessions as it creates a better learning environment and a more enjoyable session.

I`m very flexible with days and times as long as sufficient notice is given.
Sessions could take place at student`s or my current residence at Balham, as well as a mutually agreed location.

*With regard to my rates, they are negotiable for block booking and discounted for trial sessions.

Personal Description:
Trained at the School of Design in Altos de Chavon (Affiliated to Parsons New School for Design, New York), my art has taken me all the way around the world from the Caribbean, South America to Hong Kong to Portugal, and now UK. My technique varies depending on projects and as I have a strong background in Design Programs such as Adobe Creative Suite, in Fine Arts/ Illustration mediums such as Oil paints, Acrylic, Pastels, etc. Performing Arts, and exhibition assistant, I like to keep an open mind always and that has lead my art to be very versatile.

I teach Spanish as well. Its a great language and fun to speak, and very easy to learn.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2+years as an Art teacher and have been a private tutor for a few months.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understand, confidence and enthusiasm for each project. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and homework to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style, past paper questions, or drawing exams in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. Where appropriate I set and mark work, giving students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.

Personal Description:
Hi, I am 19 and currently studying engineering at The University of Sheffield. My interests lie very much in academia, majorly, in mathematics and physics. However I also spend my spare time swimming, cycling, socialising and travelling. I have been described as being approachable, easy to talk to and 'good at explaining things'. I offer my first hour of tutoring free of charge.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for over a year now and I had 8 regular students last academic session whom all gave positive feedback after sitting their exams. I also have tutored GCSE and lower school pupils in the capacity of a teachers assistant in my spare hours during my time in 6th form (a level studies). In terms of A-level maths, I teach C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, M2, FP1, D1.

Tutoring Approach:

I very much believe that the best way to teach is through clear explanation and, where possible, an explanation of the root of things. For example, where particular formulas or ideas are derived from. I also believe every student is different and may require different methods of teaching, perhaps not available in the classroom. I feel am suited towards students who may feel they learn better if they are tutored by someone who is more of a peer than a teacher. I currently only tutor online, as this allows me to offer more time slots to students.

Personal Description:
I am the mother of five adult children and live in the Earls Ct area. Besides being a teacher all my life, I have had my own landscaping business and spent many, many years onstage as a professional actor, in South Africa. I'm a keen cyclist and great reader. You will find in me an extremely calm, friendly and committed teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have twenty years experience as a professional actor and over 30 years experience as a teacher. I have taught a range of skills at all levels and am currently preparing students for KS3, KS4 and GCSE English, assisting others with preparation for dramatic performance, helping a wide range of professionals with legal, architectural and business English as well as offering help with exam English for IELTS and Cambridge exams. I proof read student statements and essay writing when required and am comfortable with conversation practise.

Tutoring Approach:

My goal is to adapt to your learning style and help you reach the targets you set yourself. Good rapport and a relaxed environment are essential for learning.I work hard to establish both. I am comfortable with all ages and stages and try to make both my teaching and your learning a pleasurable experience.

Personal Description:
I am Cambridge graduate and A level and GCSE biology teacher who is looking to take on a few tutees. I have over 15 years teaching experience and was head of biology at my previous school.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced A level biology tutor who has taught all of the examining board specifications. I have tutored students at all levels of ability and many of these have scored A s and gone on to Oxbridge or Russel group universities . Before becoming a teacher, I worked full time as a private tutor for 7 years which I enjoyed immensely. I have missed both the challenges and the emotional rewards of private tutoring and am now looking for students with whom I can work to help achieve their aspired grades in biology. Over the course of my teaching and tutoring I have build up a large resource of past papers, challenging and informative questions and many approaches to teaching difficult subjects. I also regularly work as an examiner on A level papers and so can offer extensive advice on exam technique and the best approaches to answering questions.

Tutoring Approach:

I am enthusiastic and patient and have been told that I offer a friendly and safe learning environment where students feel supported but also motivated and challenged to improve both their understanding and grades

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm a fully qualified, Cambridge educated teacher, specialising in English, History, Psychology & Politics. I am a trained English & History teacher & my degree background in Social & Political Sciences enables me to tutor in Politics & Psychology, alongside my classroom teaching and tutoring experience in these areas. I pride myself on being a fully-qualified teacher who is passionate about learning, transferring my skills and sharing my passion and love for my subjects with others. It is not everyone who is simply good at a subject or who has an impressive qualification in that discipline, who can actually teach it. Teaching itself is an art and a skill and I am proud to be able to use my personal success, pedagogical training and ability to support and inspire students.

I enjoy what I do and I love inspiring and encouraging my students to perform well and to maximise their potential. I have a high success rate and strong track record with my students & I currently teach up to A-level.

My own academic background includes A-level English (for which I obtained one of the top five marks across the country for my cohort of 2004), a 2:1 Bachelors degree from Cambridge University before completing my teacher training on the competitive 'Teach First' fast-track teacher training programme through which, I became a fully qualified English teacher.

I am now a full-time tutor whilst I establish my own business but in my most recent, long-term teaching role (3 1/2 years, full-time up to Dec 2016), I taught both English & history to GCSE level alongside 'Government & Politics' to A-level. I am also confident in the tutoring of Psychology, having studied Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) as part of my Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining an A grade at A-level, alongside private tuition success in this area.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, I look forward to working with you...! : )

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years' teaching experience as an English teacher, four years' experience teaching GCSE history & A-level Government & Politics and two years' experience tutoring A-level Psychology (which I studied as part of Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining a 2.1 and an A grade - full marks, at A-level).

I have taught, in full-time positions at high performing secondary schools across teaching English, history & politics full-time and serving as Head of Department in previous roles.

My previous experience also includes two-years of coordinating the whole-school's English & literacy programme for a secondary school in south London. This role included me ensuring that key facets and skills related to English, literacy and academic writing were embedded across the curriculum within each department, across the school (no easy feat!). I have also ran and coordinated English booster sessions for KS3 and GCSE retake students, helping struggling students at C/D borderline or lower achieve their English Language & Literature GCSE grades.

I have a strong track record of success with students, on average achieving 80 - 90% success rate with classes, with private tutoring students commonly improving by *at least* one grade or more. One of my proudest achievements was with a GCSE student who improved from an E grade to a B grade within seven months of tutoring and an A-level student, improving from a C grade at the end of AS to an A* by the end of A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to be rigorous and professional in my approach and fully believe that marking and assessment are key to success, so students must expect homework each session (for which parental support is essential) and I will spend time marking and giving detailed assessment feedback of student work, including marking tutorials with students so they can clearly see where and how they need to improve.

Whilst, I do have quite a driven approach, I am very personable and get a buzz out of making lessons fun, relevant and engaging with a focus on skills and application, as opposed to pure knowledge. I will often use reading materials and stimuli linked to the student's own personal interests, alongside any set texts needed for English literature, as teaching resources for my lessons so that students can build on their skills, whilst using material that motivates them. Furthermore, I apply this same approach to tutoring in history, politics and psychology, focusing on current affairs and contemporary developments in each subject to make the content interesting and relevant.

As a former literacy coordinator, I am also aware that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are some of the main hindrances to students' success across all subjects and year groups (adults included!), so I put GREAT emphasis on this in ALL my subjects.

On a whole, it is important to me to teach students not only to pass their exams but to actually help them develop the reading, writing, critical thinking and analysis skills that will help them for life. This is the goal I have for my students and for myself.

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.
