Personal Description:
I am a 37 year old tutor based in Lewes. For the past fifteen years I have been teaching pupils of all ages and abilities in many different capacities and have an excellent success rate with my pupils.

I also work with children with MLD & behavioural challenges as with adults of all ages and nationalities.

Should you wish to use me, you would encounter a tutor easy to relate to and learn from in an enjoyable and easy environment. I believe a student who is at ease with their tutor is far more likely to progress no matter where they are starting from!

Some reviews from previous parents:

"Rob tutored our son for a few months in preparation for 11+ exams and has been amazing at it! Although we have now stopped the lessons due to moving country, we have seen great progress in our son's abilities. Rob has been very methodical and able to recognise our son's weak areas and work on them. He particularly helped our son in his creative writing tasks! We couldn't recommend Rob more. We would be reaching out to him again if we need to in the future." (Katia and her 10 yr old son Max Secondary Entrance Exams)

"Rob has been my tutor for AS AQA Drama Theory for nearly three months now and I am thrilled with the progress I have made thanks to our lessons. Rob is an encouraging and engaging teacher and his lessons have allowed me to improve from a grade C to consistent A's in a fraction of time. I cannot recommend him enough for anyone who is looking for a one to one tutor in order to boost their grades." (Kate, 18, A-Level Drama Resit)

"Excellent work in preparing my daughter for her 11+ entrance exam (English and Math). Knowledgeable, great in explaining and keeping her interested in the subjects. Great manner and dedication, always punctual and extreamely reliable. Would not wish for a different tutor in this important time for our daughter" (Davorin and his 10 yr old daughter Sana, City of London School entrance examinations)

"Rob tutored my daughter for GCSE English. She found these sessions hugely helpful and enjoyed them even. At the time of writing this she does not have her results but she she is certainly more confident than she ever has been. Rob was very reliable and punctual. I would whole heartily recommend him as an English tutor." (Deborah and her 16 yr old daughter Yael who struggled with dyslexia, GCSE English. Yael went up from a predicted D to a B)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe one to one private tuition requires a tutor who can adapt to the needs of the pupil. I would wish to meet the pupil initially to establish how they may best be assisted and what the pupil's key areas of concern are. Each mind, young or old, needs different approaches and I believe my strongest ability is an adaptability to meet the varying needs and requirements of every student.

My approach, in most cases would be to follow a curriculum, finding out where their difficulties lie within this curriculum and how it would be best to resolve them.

I tend to use past papers when it comes to exam based tuition as this is ultimately what they will be faced with come exam time! However, when I have a pupil for longer there is more scope for more imaginative teaching or simply assistance with difficult homework.

With each of my previous pupils I have needed and been able to assist them in a way that is individually appealing to them and I have never had a pupil who has not achieved their desired results.

Personal Description:
I am only taking on a small number of students this year. My skill set is best suited to students who are not reaching their optimal potential because of emotional stresses at home or school, or because the teaching is inadequate at school

My background in counselling helps me build rapport and bring out the best in students who have had emotional problems at school.

I am concerned with education of the whole person, rather than cramming in knowledge just to get through that exam.

I have experience of teaching both in schools, colleges and universities and bring a depth of understanding to my work with people from nine to ninety.

I have four grown up children.

I have worked in 3 of the four top universities in the UK. I am involved in educational projects in a number of schools.

Teaching Experience:

BA Hons. PGCE 1974. I have taught in primary and secondary schools, as well as sixth form colleges and universities, including Oxford and the London School of Economics.. I have also taught in private schools and been a director of a school of counselling and psychotherapy. I have taught psychology at Abingdon and Witney College, and poetry in many Oxfordshire Schools. I teach poetry short courses for Oxford University at the Ashmolean museum. I teach both GCSE and IGCSE courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always do my best to help a student improve their exam performance, using my wide knowledge of psychology and counselling/coaching skills, as well as my subject knowledge. I most enjoy working with students who want to gain a deeper understanding of their subjects that will be of use to them in their real lives, rather than just to get through an exam. I am very good at building a rapport with students, and finding a way to bring the best out of their skill set.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Tom and I currently work as an English, maths and ICT teacher at a local college. I hold: a first degree in Sociological, Historical and Literary studies, with Honours (BA Hons); a Master's Degree (MA) in Sociological Criminology and Criminal Justice; a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (P.G.C.E); a TEFL certificate (teaching English as a foreign language qualification); and I am a qualified assessor (TAQA). I live in Fleetwood with my wife and family and my interests are football, non fictional reading, critical writing and critical discussion.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach English but also, some maths and ICT. I have previously worked at various colleges across the North West teaching these subjects as well as sociology. I have about five years private tutoring experience and enjoy both classroom and one to one teaching.

After graduating with a Masters Degree, I decided to embark on a teaching career, for which, I love. With having all the skills and knowledge in place, I wanted to give something back and help others succeed.

In addition to working at key stage 3 and 4 in an English setting and up to A level in sociology, I have over two years experience working in a Primary School setting. I love working with all ages and all levels of education.

Tutoring Approach:

With my level of knowledge and current experience, I would be ideally suited to improving your child's English and sociology grades up to GCSE level for English and A Level for sociology. With my in depth knowledge and developed writing skills, coupled with my teaching and learning qualities, I will be able to focus on areas of the curriculum that your child falls short in.

Focusing on improving your child's underpinning core knowledge, such as spelling, grammar and punctuation, I will also increase their capacity to internalise information due to my enthusiastic, friendly and easy to get along with style. The key to actively engaging learners to improve their grades is to: provide enjoyable lessons; set achievable targets; and give good, honest feedback. If learners enjoy themselves, know what they are required to do and how to do it, they progress!

If your child struggles to express themselves through their work, homework or coursework/ essays, or struggles to get motivated to complete tasks, I can help improve their enthusiasm, enjoyment and essentially their grades. My learner orientated approach helps to develop the ability to organise and structure work, improve grammar and punctuation and broaden creative output. Further to this, I also like to show learners how to self motivate and to manage time more effectively when embarking on homework or coursework, which is essential to further progression.

My methodical, approachable and friendly style, coupled with my results orientated approach, is suitable for learners of all ages (including younger children and adult learners), which in turn will aid development in other subject areas. Furthermore, I am TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) qualified, so I am also skilled in teaching learners English who speak English as a second/ foreign language.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a great love of languages, ancient and modern. I have two degrees: a BA from the University of Bristol and an MA from UCL. Both degrees contained a significant Classical language component and I am familiar with all the major authors. I also have a teaching diploma with a specialisation in tutoring one-to-one or small groups.

Teaching Experience:

- Private tutor with a wealth of experience across all age groups - my students/tutees have ranged in age from 12 to 75. I have coached for exams (CE, GCSE, A level, university exams), with excellent results for my students, and I have tutored adult learners who have come to me for a variety of reasons: to learn Latin from scratch, or to follow a guided reading of Latin Literature. I am happy to take small groups as well as individuals - please contact me for rates.
- Tutor in adult education, teaching Italian, Latin, Ancient Greek and Ancient History in West Sussex.
- Tutor at The London Summer School in Classics.
- Tutor at a leading university, taking undergraduate seminar classes.

Tutoring Approach:

The key to successful tutoring lies in tailoring the content of the classes to the student's needs and objectives. For GCSE, a rigorous approach may be required to ensure that grammar and vocabulary is acquired, whereas an adult learner of Latin may want to progress quickly to adapted text, or simply to enjoy themselves with some new - or revisit Latin learnt many years ago. Whatever the case, I think learning or revision should be fun, and I aim to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible, whilst keeping a close eye on exam deadlines!

Personal Description:
I have been a professional actor and presenter since graduating from The Academy Drama School in 2001.

Having played a great many acting roles in my career I have moved into presenting and currently host two shows on Channel Five as well as a great many other broadcasts too, along with my continued acting work.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught young students who are hoping to gain their place in a drama or stage school and need to present an audition piece to enable them to feel confident and assured they will do well under the pressure of such an audition; Adults who require some form of confidence boost or presentation tutoring from work presentations to best man speech improvement and actors who just want to work on their audition pieces prior to a casting.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe acting is a far reaching field that covers so many aspects.

I have been lucky enough to have made a career in the performance world and can aid those who require some direction or assistance from younger students who want to secure a drama school placement through to adults who are presenting in front of a large group.

No matter what you end point needs to be, I can assist you in either direction or advice to help you achieve your goals.

Personal Description:
Hi. My name is Llinos. I am 37 and live in Eastleigh near Southampton. I currently work part time as a History teacher in a senior state school. I have previously been Head of History in a very successful senior girls' grammar school and in private prep school. I have also had several History teaching roles up to A2 level as well as teaching Maths and English up to year 8.

Over the last 14 years I have taught a wide range of History topics at all levels and to a wide variety of abilities from EAL students to preparation for Oxbridge interviews. I have also prepared pupils up to 13 for the Common Entrance English examination and have provided on-going support in English focussing on literacy, grammar etc.

I work for OCR as an A Level and GCSE examiner so am fully aware of the requirements needed to attain the best grade possible here. I have also attended several INSETS of the other main exam boards at both GCSE and A Level as well as the most recent meeting for History at Common Entrance level so have a very good knowledge of all public examinations.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History for over 14 years. I taught in a very high achieving boys' grammar school (Reading School) forc2 years before becoming Head of History in a very high achieving girls' school (Kendrick).
I taught all years including GCSE and A level and think that I have covered all main exam boards and many of the topics taught at all levels. Most girls gained A*-A grades at both levels.

I also ran the Berkshire group for the Learning Skills Council to work to improve attainment at A Level for all abilities as well as presenting at LSC conferences on study skills and how to stretch the most able in History.

I then taught in a private girls school where my duties involved helping pupils with English as a second language gain a higher-level pass at A Level as well as teaching all years of mixed ability including GCSE and A Level classes.

Until recently, I worked in a prep school as Head of History and delivered one-to-one lessons with all of my year 8 pupils in preparation for their exams. Last year, my class of 18 very mixed ability pupils all gained A*-B in their Common Entrance History exam.
I have also taught English, Geography, Maths and RS at secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

I have done much work on study skills, particularly mind-mapping, and learning styles. It is a bit of a passion that I have in addition to the History!

I love teaching pupils one-to-one and working out what is going to be the best method (or methods) of learning for them. I also see that the problem can sometimes be happening at a very basic level to a large extent. For example - if a student is just sent off to 'make notes' without ever having been actually guided in HOW to make these notes.

I don't really think I have an 'approach' in general as I truly believe that, in a one-to-one situation, methods can and should be completely tailored to the specific needs of that individual pupil.
Depending on those needs, I can work with students to produce specific and useful sets of notes, work on examiantion technique, provide extensive essay feedback, help them recognise how to remember specific historical details and which ones to bother learning etc.

Personal Description:
I see myself as a passionate musician, always looking to expand my skills and knowledge and share them with other musicians both live, in studio and through lessons.
As you will note, I finished my BMus (Hons) back in 2012, specialized in electric guitar and I have also acquired three years of Music Production/Technology at Linköping University, Sweden. I hold a CRB check as well as a Child Protection and Health and Safety Certificate.

As a versatile individual, I have been taking part in different professional situations where I have applied my skills as a musician, live, in studio and through private teaching. These experiences have solidified my confidence and have given me the opportunity to express myself musically as well as instructing my students to pursue their musical journeys.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching privately students of ages 8 - 45, for the last 20 months. For my lessons I have created my own material combined with information gathered from other sources (books, dvd's, masterclasses) and I also have used different guitar syllabuses in some cases.

Tutoring Approach:

My goal as a teacher is to share my appreciation for music with students and fellow musicians, by teaching a range of topics including Techniques, Sight Reading, Ensemble Performance, Style Studies, Composition and Music Production. Besides introducing new concepts to the students, I am positive about creating a fun and relaxed environment but challenging at the same time.
I usually choose songs that from my point of view are suitable for the students and combine that with other topics like the ones mentioned above. I find it very important to create fun and captivating lessons with the emphasis on the student's growth in the most efficient way. For every lesson taught, I keep track of the student's progress making sure that the information is learned and applied in context before moving on to new material.

Personal Description:
I began tutoring during my chemistry study, which I finished with a Master's of Science in Chemistry (first class degree) and a PhD in Biochemistry (first class degree). I have successfully tutored over seventy A-level students in twelve years and have helped graduate and undergraduate students at university. One of my pupils was a medicine student, who said after my lesson: "I did not know chemistry is so easy".
I am familiar with the special requirements of the GAMSAT exam and have expert knowledge in biochemistry, microbiology and molecular biology.
As a fifty year old German citizen, I have lived in England for thirteen years. Tutoring is my main profession now.

Teaching Experience:

Twelve years of experience as a Chemistry Tutor enable me to help students to accelerate their understanding of Chemistry and to archive their full potential. Based on a thorough assessment a tutoring plan is developed to fill in gaps and to build up a solid foundation of knowledge.

I have successfully tutored students for their A-level, university and GAMSAT exams and I am happy to provide references. I have been with a well known tutor agency for several years and I am fully CRB checked.

I have worked for 18 years in high profile labs in scientific research all over the world including Tübingen (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Paris (France), Atlanta (USA), Vancouver (Canada), Cambridge (UK) and Leicester (UK).
During this time I have taught undergraduate university students and have supervised Masters and PhD students. My scientific expertise includes Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular biology, Protein chemistry, Chemical Analytic and Genetic Engineering.

Testimonials:

"Thank you so much for your help this year. My understanding has improved immensely and my confidence has also greatly benefited. I can now enjoy chemistry without the confusion and stress, even the exams have become enjoyable!"

"I wouldn't have been able to get the A* without your help." Sanjeev

"I got my GAMSAT results the other day and scored an average of 63 (which is in the top 15% of the country)!! Thanks so much for your help" Roshan

Tutoring Approach:

Whenever I get a new client I begin with a thorough assessment: What kind of person is he or she, what basic knowledge is present and what are the main problem areas? Then a tutoring plan is suggested to reach the goal in a reasonable time frame.

My tutoring lessons are individually tailored to the needs of the student and designed to be entertaining but also challenging. The interview style of the session keeps the tutee focused and engaged. I incorporate examples of daily life and draw comparisons with situations from sports and hobbies. In my last assignment, we even did some small chemistry experiments (no worries parents - only harmless ones - the kitchen did not blow up!).

Besides improving their learning strategies, I ensure my students are well prepared for exams by practicing past papers and using official mark schemes. However my emphasis lies on building up a solid foundation of knowledge and the skills of applying it. I am familiar with the four main exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR A and B), but might add additional information, if this helps with the understanding. Homework of around 30 min is given between sessions to practice and deepen the new knowledge.

I give my best to make the teaching interesting and enjoyable, which motivates him or her to learn. I understand that at the beginning there might be resentment towards the subject. However there has to be a basic willingness to learn. If I do not feel the openness at least to try, I reserve myself the right to decline the assignment.

Nevertheless I have a lot of patience and enthusiasm, which let me usually get along very well with my students. I hope at the end of my tuition I can quote you saying "I did not know chemistry is so easy".

Additional information: travel costs up to 5 miles distance are included in my fess. For distances of 5 - 10 miles add £4, for 10 - 20 miles add £8 to the hourly charges. I do not tutor at my home, but also offer online tuition.

Personal Description:
I am Spanish teacher living in London. I am really friendly, responsible and I will always love to learn as many languages as possible.

Teaching Experience:

I studied a degree on Translation and Interpreting so I have a good English and French. Two years ago, I ended my MA degree on Spanish language and culture which is mainly focused on teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

I have been an English assistant teacher in two Summer Camps for 4 to 6 year old children and also taught Spanish as a foreign language to Erasmus students coming to the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
I have also been personal tutor of many children between 5 and 15 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I really try to focus on a Communicative Method, I make sure grammar is learned but I do not focus on showing grammar as a separate subject which has to be learned by hard. I try to show real texts (news articles, stories, tales, etc) and once you are able to understand the vocabulary, you will notice how is grammar used in different contexts.
There is no sense of teaching a language without a real context, I try to avoid inventing sentences which have no meaning at all.

In case you wish to try different approaches, I have no inconvenience on adapting it to what you really want to do.
