Personal Description:
I am very flexible and am able to tutor students in the evenings and on weekends. I am home-based so students can visit me or take lessons through SKYPE. This flexibility suits busy students and those with other commitments who are often unable to stick to a strict regime. I have a PgDip in TESOL and am constantly looking to invent interesting new ways to teach and encourage my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an English language teacher for over 14 years and have worked in Greece, Japan and Indonesia as well as in the UK.

I lecture part time in higher education institutions and have worked as Assistant Director of Studies/Academic Manager of a college in Edinburgh where I ran a busy summer school.

I have helped countless students achieve and often exceed their expectations in exam classes including IELTS and TOEFL.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach on a student-centred basis and during the first meeting we will work together to create a detailed plan covering all your needs for the agreed number of lessons.

Every lesson will centre on a specific grammar point and vocabulary theme with lots of conversation and student input. My students definitely do most of the talking!

I will assess progress regularly through tests and coursework and adapt the lesson plans as appropriate.

View Ian's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am an Economics graduate from Liverpool University and taught economics and business studies in secondary schools for over 10 years. Prior to teaching I worked in advertising for 10 years. I now focus on tutoring economics and business studies students and I also own two online businesses. I live in Bristol, am married with 3 children and I am passionate about helping young people achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Economics and Business Studies in state schools for 10 years and have also tutored students for many years. My students consistently over-perform - all students I tutored in 2015 achieved at least a grade B and improved at least one grade since I started working with them. Several improved by 3 or more grades. For example, one recent A2 Economics student went from a grade E in his January mock exam to an A* overall in June, whilst another A2 student went from a grade B to a grade A overall and achieved 100% on an AS resit paper. I am an experienced Economics examiner and am familiar with all the major exam boards. I can supply references on request (some are listed on my profile) and I have a current CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always begin by discussing my tutee's individual requirements and areas of the syllabus they would like to focus on. Once these have been established, I usually start with a return to basics, teaching economic or business theory that may not have been fully understood by the student. Once they are comfortable with the concepts, I will look to build in higher order analytical and evaluation skills as well as providing real world examples. I will use a variety of teaching methods to stretch students, backed up with exam technique by practising past papers. I am happy to teach face to face for local students, however I often teach online via Skype, using a whiteboard facility, which my students can also access. This makes the sessions as interactive as meeting face to face and it also means I can tutor students who don't live in Bristol. I always encourage students to provide feedback so that they receive maximum benefit from their teaching.

Below are some testimonials from current and recent students:

''I really cannot overstate the amount Ian has helped me out with my AQA Economics A-level with AQA. After missing the most part of an entire term of Economics teaching at my school essentially all of my Economics knowledge came from Ian for my A2 exams. I had originally achieved a C-grade in AS Economics, but after Ian teaching me for only two school terms I was able to achieve two A's at 174/200 UMS in my A2 exams (the criteria for earning an A* at A-level being 180/200 UMS). This would have been unachievable without Ian's help. One particularly useful tool for learning with Ian was our Skype sessions (around 70% of our lesson time was done using this method). These were online lessons in which our communication was done via Skype, using the "Google Docs" tool as a way of sharing work and information between us. This was particularly useful to me as my schedule was always busy and being able to be tutored online made me able to make every lesson without feeling overworked or having to travel. Alongside this, these sessions meant I was able to do work and get real-time feedback on my exam answers at the same time. My answers could be questioned and improved with input from both myself and Ian. Overall taking in this information improved my exam technique considerably and played a large part in me obtaining such successful grades. Ian helped me hugely with my A-levels and I genuinely believe I would have performed at a level lower than a C without his tutoring. I would very much recommend him as a tutor to anyone looking for Economics help. He was able to assist with knowledge, theory and exam technique while using relevant, memorable and up-to-date examples that made the most out of our time and helped towards my exams.'' Mr C - Bristol

"Matt only got an E grade in his February A2 mock exam and the school predicted he would get a C grade at A2. With the significant assistance from Ian, Matt achieved an A* at A2. In his other two A levels, Matt achieved Bs (he also had tutors for these). There are several reasons why Ian made the difference: 1.Being taught on Skype. Matt was initially very apprehensive about being taught on Skype rather than in person. But Skype proved really beneficial. Firstly it enabled Matt to fit in tuition at times that would just not have been possible if travel had been involved. Secondly it enabled Matt to have additional lessons when he had spare time. 2. Focussing on how to structure essay answers. The school just didn't put anywhere near enough emphasis on this crucial area. 3. Essay marking. A key aspect of A2 is exam practice. We paid Ian for essay marking which meant that Matt was effectively maximising his time with Ian. 4. Not accepting mediocrity. The school said that Matt should not retake his AS exams as he had a good B grade. Ian said he should retake as he could do better. 5. Providing positive encouragement. Matt has always lacked belief in himself and Ian gave Matt the confidence that he could achieve a good result.
We would strongly recommend Ian as an Economics tutor" Mr P - South Gloucestershire

"Ian is an incredible tutor, who can prepare you not only for the Economics lessons, but also for the A levels exam. Before came to him, I struggled to understand Economics and was predicted a C. However, Ian helped me to understand all the economic concepts and theories, using up to date examples and YouTube videos and I achieved a grade A at AS level. Half of the lessons I had were via Skype since I was abroad that time. That's why I would especially recommend Ian for those students, who don't have the opportunity to come to his home. On the whole Ian is a brilliant Economics teacher, who will definitely help you to succeed in the subject" Miss B - Bristol and Russia

"Ian is a friendly and helpful tutor. He is punctual for his lessons and flexible with his timings. My son retook his EC2 paper in January 2013 and secured 100% after getting tutored from Ian. This is an improvement from a grade B prior to Ian's tutoring. Ian helped my son tremendously in his exam technique and boosted my son's confidence in the subject and the ways to approach his exams. My son was able to achieve 100% only because of Ian's teaching and from his dedicated effort. I would easily recommend Ian to anyone needing a tutor." Mrs D - Swansea

"Ian started tutoring me in late September and since then my Economics results have improved and I achieved an A grade in my final A2 exams. I have found Ian a very helpful tutor who is more than willing to go through my questions. We go through essays and past paper questions which aid my understanding and confidence in Economics topics. Ian taught me online and I found that Skype was highly convenient in allowing me to not have to travel to Ian" Mr B - Chepstow

"I contacted Ian since I felt that I needed help in understanding the context and concepts involved. Ian style of working was particularly effective. He helped me to improve my understanding of the subject matter by logical explanation and by building from basic principles to a more sophisticated awareness of the subject. Ian was always very patient and sympathetic to my learning needs. He was well prepared for our sessions, and always set me work to do independently as well. As a result of Ian's support I feel that my capability in Economics increased significantly. When I started working with Ian I was achieving at around a grade C. As a result of Ian's support I achieved an overall grade B at AS, the actual grades for the 2 papers were an A and a B. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ian and would happily recommend Ian as a tutor for Economics. I will be continuing to have him as a tutor through my A2 course" Miss B - Redland, Bristol

"My son initially struggled with the subject gaining an E grade in his mock exams but with Ian's help he managed a grade B in his AS level and attained an A grade in both A2 papers. This was a huge improvement over the two years and I doubt it would have been possible without Ian's help, both with weekly tutoring and the all important pre exam revision days. Ian's approach was personalised and intensive and my son's needs we're concentrated upon fully. Ian was always punctual and organised and struck up a good relationship with the whole family. I would happily recommend him." Mrs W - Redland, Bristol

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English Teacher with a wealth of experience teaching in various schools in Bristol and London. I have the knowledge, skills, and experience to teach English Literature and English Language up to GCSE and ALevel. I am able to cater for a range of learning styles, needs, and abilities. I can also offer literacy support (including dyslexic pupils), as well as advice on UCAS applications, part time job applications, and essay skills tuition. I am an empathic, friendly, and caring person who is very supportive and approachable.

Teaching Experience:

I was first drawn to teaching English when I worked as a Nursery Assistant in India in August 2008 following a TEFL level 1 training course. I found the experience richly rewarding as I adapted to, and overcame, the communication challenges. I then took on the role of private Literacy and Essay Skills tutor for two undergraduates and a Y7 mentor for the Schools Linking Network during my Master's degree. In September 2014, I secured a place on the Secondary English PGCE course at the University of the West of England (UWE). I completed trainee placements at Hugh Sexey Church of England School, Michaelston Community College, and Sheldon School, which developed my teaching across all years from Y7 media units to Y12 English literature units. In my final progress report, I was praised for my excellent subject knowledge, ability to model Standard English, teach engaging and well-structured lessons, create challenging and differentiated resources, instigate a caring classroom atmosphere conducive to learning, and form good relationships with pupils. In September 2015, I was offered the role of Teacher of English at Holland Park School, a prestigious institution known for its creative excellence and academic rigour. Having completed my NQT year at Holland Park School in July 2016, I then took on the role of Supply Teacher at Robert Barclay Academy in Hoddesdon on a short term basis. Having relocated to Cheltenham, I am now working as a private tutor for ClassPeople.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach will entirely depend on the literacy levels of the pupil I am tutoring (any level completely welcome), and what exams (if any) the pupil is working towards. Depending on the ability of the pupil, the tuition will incorporate practice exercises targeting any areas that need improvement.

Personal Description:
I'm well prepared to teach Fine Art at GCSE, A-level and causal learning.
From taking my GCSE, and A-LEVEL Art a year early, to achieving the Highest Joint International grade in GCSE ART and Design: Fine Art I have a thorough understanding of of all three exams and work books, and what the examiners are looking for.

I have previously studied at and had several pieces of work displayed in Marbella Art Gallery, and also sold various pieces.


I'm a friendly, open-minded 19 years old student currently studying a BA Russian and politics degree at University College London (UCL)
I lived in Southern Spain for 3 years, and have a high level of conversational Spanish, and a good understanding of basic grammar and usage. From my personal experience, no matter how much you're taught at school, the best way to UNDERSTAND and learn any language is to use it !

Teaching Experience:

During GCSE ART I played a key role in helping fellow students develop their artistic eye, and see the development of their work book as a 'tick box' exercise; which proved very effective, especially for those who struggled with mandatory teaching

For both ART and SPANISH I've gained a lot of experience through helping, understanding and listening to younger children and adolescents, simple from having a large family and teaching family friends.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to show my students how experimentation, development of ideas and evidence of inspiration are the keys to not only a rich, varied work book, but also an exam piece that ticks all the examiners boxes.
I can help my students see Art at these levels as an examiner 'tick box' exercise, yet still retaining high levels of artistic skill and development. At the same time If any of my students require greater focus on technical drawing/painting guidance i'm more than prepared and experienced.
I'm also happy to use my own work books and pieces as examples of my style.

For SPANISH, I have good conversational skills, and believe the best way to learn any language is to submerse yourself in it - so conversation is a great place to start! From doing all 3 levels of exams at school, I can say that this is the one thing that lacked the most. My style is flexible and I am great with younger children (I also have a young sister who I also helped with Spanish). I'm ready to adjust myself to which ever level is needed

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.

Hi I'm Gareth! I am motivated and love my job! I teach Primary School children everyday and with that comes challenges and the opportunity to get to know children and their interests. I think it's important for children to get to know me and my interests as I like to create a relaxed and approachable ethos. I play rugby and love watching local and national clubs playing. I am very competitive and enjoy a good game of articulate! I have had the privilege to work with children in Brazil and learned how children learn from different teaching styles especially those with English as an additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching key stage 2 since September 2017. I graduated from Northumbria University in June 2016. Prior to undertaking my PGCE in primary education was working as teaching assistant in a special needs school and a British College primary school in Brazil.
I have tutored children for their AQE exams in the past year and each child has achieved their personal targets. I have seen children grown in confidence and their understanding of the subject deepen which is why I am passionate about my job.

Tutoring Approach:

With encouragement and motivated lessons, every child can achieve their full potential. My aim is to find the areas of misunderstanding in various subject areas and to build a firm foundation of knowledge and understanding. I ensure that the child can access the learning by providing a range of strategies and learning techniques to overcome any challenges.
