Personal Description:
I am married with two young children. I enjoy all sports and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I am Head of Chemistry at a large 14-18 Leicestershire Upper School. I have taught at this school for 25 years. I teach GCSE and A-Level Chemistry. I have about 20 years tutoring experience with much success. As well as teaching AQA A-level and GCSE Chemistry, I have tutored OCR, Salters and EDEXCEL. Indeed, one of my private students achieved 100% in an A-level Chemistry module last year and this year another student achieved 100% in an AQA GCSE Chemistry module. My students consistently achieve over 90% in examinations.
I do tutor all abilities and all my students reach their potential and beyond.
I am Principal Examiner for IGCSE Chemistry for Cambridge International Examinations. I also set GCSE Chemistry Questions and check question papers before they are sat.
Recently, I have been tutoring students in preparation for the Chemistry component of the GAMSAT Examination - used as a route into medicine by some students.
I also use Skype and email for online tutoring. I am tutoring many students by Skype from all over the country. It is very successful and means that I can now offer tuition to students without any travelling involved or who live just too far away from me to travel. If you would like to try this as an option please get in touch with me. I can definitely recommend tutoring by Skype - try it if you live too far to travel. I offer first Skype lesson at 50% off or first 30 minutes for free so that you can try it.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the key to excellent examination results is confidence in being able to tackle the questions set. I, therefore, focus on passed papers alongside the teaching of the theory. I expect the students to ask about parts they do not understand and build on this whilst building up their understanding and knowledge.

Personal Description:
Qualified and experienced EFL specialist. I've been teaching English as a Foreign or Additional Language for 7 years to a wide age range and for a variety of specialist purposes.

I've been teaching in China for the last 3 years and will move back to the UK in July. I'm looking to start tutoring again from August so please get in touch if your looking for a tutor to start around then.

I'm a calm, organised and friendly person. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy learning English and to see the progress they are making.

I'm very interested in using technology in learning and for students who like learning with screens I will integrate other websites and apps into their homework and preparation.

I learned French in school and I'm continuing learning Chinese. I remember my language learning experience in school and in China, I know what a struggle it is to understand new grammar rules and how difficult it can be some weeks to make time to practice. I try to create an enjoyable and supportive environment in lessons so it is not stressful to make mistakes and students don't leave feeling tired out by learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught :
English in south China for 3 years (2013-2016)
English as a Foreign/Additional Language for 7 years (2009 - present)
students preparing for IELTS and PTE
students writing dissertations and theses
beginner English speakers and native speakers
students from 7 years old up to retired grandparents
English for Business, Medicine and Engineering
preparation for driving theory and food safety tests

Tutoring Approach:

I like to incorporate games, puzzles and challenges along with the content to help you engage with and better understand how to use the language. I'm very adaptable and will plan lessons based on what you want to achieve and how you like to learn.

For students getting ready for a test I can prepare a course of lessons with exam specific practice and a focus on the areas that most concern you.

For primary age students I have a variety of fun and engaging activities that get them excited about joining in lessons and learning English.

For university students I can give tailored lessons to help with essay, paragraph and sentence structure. I can also review grammar applied to the context of your subject to help you in your academic writing.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a professional educator with a wealth of experience in a wide variety of teaching environments. I've taught in schools (Primary and Secondary) around Hampshire covering almost all the curriculum, been a private tutor for a wealthy family in the Middle East, and helped local students improve their GCSE and A-Level grades.

I trained in Physics and have a Masters degree in Physics with Space Science and Technology from the university of Leicester. I now teach Physics and Mathematics at a variety of levels in Gosport and offer local tuition.

Presently, my circumstances make it difficult to offer tuition, and can only accommodate students coming to my home in Gosport.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2009 and took up a post in a 11-18 state comprehensive. Here I taught Science at Key Stage 3 and specialised in Physics at Key Stages 4 and 5. After I moved to the south coast I spent 6 months supplying at various schools in Hampshire. This opened my eyes to the full range of skills a good educator should have. I honestly feel my teaching skills were vastly enriched by teaching in a variety of environments in many different subjects.
From March 2011 I was hired by a prestigious tutoring agency based in Oxford to work for a wealthy client and their two sons in the Middle East. This consisted of after-school tutoring 5 evenings a week in a variety of subjects.
Now back in the UK I teach in an Engineering Academy run to train Network Rail Apprentices. I tutor in the evenings from 11+ entrance exam students to those sitting their A2 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I truly believe that every child is born a genius, with the ability to grasp everything that is put in front of them. From that point on, society, parents, and peers all put barriers in our minds. It is my goal to see that these barriers are destroyed. Learning is done by the student rather than teaching done by the teacher. A teacher can teach a dog to whistle, it doesn't meant the dog will learn.

A tutor is merely a resource. Just like a book, or an expensive laptop. Achieving the optimal results requires a holistic approach to education. I tend to work heavily with educational psychology theory and pinpoint the exact pieces of the puzzle far beneath the surface that allow the bigger picture to be seen. I teach my tutees to look at examinations in a way they may have never seen them before, allowing them to reduce the anxiety and be truly confident in themselves.

The content of subject matter often comes second to learning technique. How people learn differs between individuals. There can never be one set way to solve a problem so I offer various routes and pin point techniques that can be beneficial.

  • 11+ (secondary) (50 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm an easy going, empathetic, supportive and a very patient tutor who is dedicated to all my students and teaching Maths. I'm very thorough in my teaching and ensure no stone is left unturned in preparing for my student's maths exams/tests. I enjoy helping my students reach their full potential and achieve their aims. I encourage all my students to take a general interest in Mathematics as this helps them in doing well. I do 1 to 1 tuition and also tutor small groups of no more than 4 students. I teach all levels up to and including A-Level and for all exam boards (AQA, EDEXCEL and OCR). I have thus far been very successful as a Maths tutor and hope to continue this trend especially in light of the tremendous performance of my students in the 2016 academic year. I specialize in helping my students obtain grades A-A* in their exams. Every GCSE (Higher) and A-Level Student I have ever tutored has gained grades A* to C.

Teaching Experience:

I'm currently a Teacher of Mathematics at a local academy in Luton (11-19 year olds) and have had 6 years experience in private tuition, teaching Mathematics at all levels up to and including A-Level. Teach all abilities and ages.

Tutoring Approach:

The aim of my tuition lessons is 2 fold. Firstly it is to give my students a thorough understanding of the Mathematics modules/topics they are studying so that they are able to gain an excellent foundation in studying Mathematics or courses that have a substantial Mathematical content at a higher level. Secondly I give my students intensive and vigorous exam preparation so that they do extremely well in their examinations and achieve high grades. This is usually done by by doing many past papers under exam conditions. I also set my students difficult questions to complete (from many different sources and references). These questions are more difficult than what would normally appear in their actual exams. The purpose of making my students do these questions is so that they are totally prepared to tackle any questions that their exams or tests may throw at them.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a 44 yr old graduate of Oxford University, where I studied French and German, and a postgraduate of the University of Manchester, where I obtained a Masters and Doctorate in English. I'm currently an Associate Tutor at the Universities of Salford and Edge Hill. I live in West Yorkshire, but can also cover South Lancs and Manchester.

Teaching Experience:

I'm really enjoying teaching some individual pupils at GCSE and A-level at the moment and now have the time to take on some more.

I have been teaching English in Higher Education since 2004. During this time I also taught an A-level student English on an individual basis, as extra preparation for Oxbridge entry - the student gained a place at Oxford. I've also taught two summer schools for visiting American students at the University of Manchester, and a first year university student privately last year.

I have experience with AQA syllabuses in French GCSE and English (Literature) GCSE and A-level (Gothic and Pastoral), and also OCR French.



I also worked for some years in the retail/hospitality sector, where I was an induction trainer, and had some involvement with NVQ assessment.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the most important thing in teaching is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where students are not afraid to ask any questions. I like to avoid overt formality, and make the teaching as enjoyable as possible. I'm very encouraging and positive, but within this will always offer constructive criticism when it's needed. I make sure sessions end with clear goals about what students need to do to improve - clear and achieveable goals, that I will check your progress with. I enjoy teaching a great deal, and will push you to achieve your very best.

For under 16s, I have a programme for teaching English, French, and German. This includes conversation, grammar, composition, and working with literature suited to the pupil's age range. It's flexible and pitched to any age and ability between 11 and 16.

Personal Description:
Hi i'm Waqar and I am a 24 year old student who is passionate about helping other students fulfil their potential.

I graduated with a 1st class Biomedical Science (Hons) degree in 2014 and I am currently studying Medicine at Barts and the London School of Medicine & Dentistry. I have previously completed a semester of Medicine at Pleven University in Bulgaria.

I know how tough it can be throughout school with the pressure of achieving the best grades you can and aiming for your dream university course. Having had my own difficulties and learning how to overcome them, I have a real passion in making sure that other students are able to reach their goals.

I am able to help with Biology (up to degree level), Chemistry (up to A-Level), other Sciences and Maths (up to GCSE). I can also provide advice with applications to Medical School both in the UK and abroad.

If you have any questions about anything above or anything that is not mentioned, please message me and i'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Hope to hear from you soon

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring students for A-Levels and GCSEs during my time as a sixth form student and undergraduate. I have also helped with applications to medical school and entry exams such as the UKCAT.

I hope to build on this experience and help more and more students reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is tailored to each student's needs and I am able to adapt my teaching methods to bring out the best in each student. I am very patient and I am able to identify strengths and weaknesses, allowing my tutee and I to really focus on particular areas in order to really get the best out of each session.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped younger children at my secondary school to improve their maths skills, through weekly sessions. My main experience is explaining topics to my fellow classmates at GCSE and A-level to help them on parts they are unsure of.

Tutoring Approach:

Im always wanting help other people to improve there knowledge in whatever way I can, this translates through my teaching style using techniques I found useful when being taught to teach others. Patience for me is key and I find it the best way to explain a topic.

Personal Description:
I am a high achieving MSc Civil and Structural Engineering graduate with excellent work and study pedigree. I graduated with Distinction from Coventry University, United Kingdom. I am currently carrying out a PhD research in Engineering in Coventry University. My experiences so far has enabled me to build a broad range of leadership and interpersonal skills. Therefore, I am able to manage challenging behavior and communicate effectively with people from diverse background.

Teaching Experience:

I have a strong passion for teaching mathematics, logical and quantitative reasoning concepts. My ability to grasps the basic ideas in maths have allowed me to excel in technical concepts in Engineering. I have an experience of teaching undergraduates through the support assistant role in the university. I have had a one-on-one experience teaching and supporting an undergraduate student with great success in his studies and research work. I am really desirous of further developing my skills as a tutor in mathematics. This will enable me to further build a strong career as a teacher and lecturer. I served as a maths and computer education teacher in a secondary school during my compulsory national youth service just after my graduation from the university. I have had the experience of learning and applying real life mathematics concepts of trigonometry and algebra as an engineer working in the construction industry. A typical example of this was in the development of survey data for the design of roads and in the preparation of bill of quantities.

Tutoring Approach:

As a maths tutor, I have the aim of creating in students the ability to understand the basic ideas in mathematics. I also do aspire to instill in students the confidence that aids excellence in problem - solving especially in examinations as well as in answering questions to unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that the capacity to grasps and retain the needed skills is to relate mathematics with real life experiences.This then easily creates the atmosphere for the development of real passion for learning and appreciating the subject. Hence, I do not strive to make the student quote the ideas and the notions involved in the subject, instead I encourage the student draw analogies. Even though my approach does vary depending on the needs and learning style of the student involved, I do aim to foster independence in the student by encouraging deep critical thinking. After teaching a particular topic in mathematics, my method of assessment is to test the student's understanding through additional problems and humorous games that relate to the topic. Also, in order to assess the level of my teaching strategy, I do request feedback from the student on a regular basis.
