Personal Description:
I am an MFL teacher with bags of enthusiasm and an immense passion for French and Spanish. I work in a Boys Grammar School in North Kent, and have enjoyed spells living in Quebec and Aix-en-Provence in the past. I find empathising with students easy, and have girls and boys between 8 years old and adult on my books. In my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, reading and cycling, having recently completed the London to Brighton cycle in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach in a Grammar school in North Kent. I have also done a year's supply in South Yorkshire, as well as in a primary school in France. I also have 9 months experience of teaching French in Essex. I am currently tutoring 4 students going into a third year and I am familiar with the A Level system as well as the IB, having only last year helped two IB students achieve the necessary grades for Durham and Cambridge Universities. I am sure a reference could be available upon request!

Tutoring Approach:

I like to support students in their learning by being thorough, professional, but approachable. My effective tutoring in the past has helped students to feel more confident, happier and untimately this shows in their results. I was very proud of two students IB results last year, but I take equal pleasure from progress in other areas, such as a marked increase in confidence and ability with a student of a younger age.

Personal Description:
I moved from Henley-on-Thames to Bampton in October 2011. In 2012, I worked three days a week in an independent girls' school in Exeter, providing one-to-one support for a girl in Year 9 and also taught English Literature to Year 7 & Year 13 classes.

I have a passion for the written word and its performance in poetry and drama.

I am a mother with three grown-up children and a grandmother, and very interested in how young people view and contribute to the world in which they live.

I have an MA (with Merit) in Postcolonial Studies from SOAS, University of London (2015) and a First Class Honours BA degree in English and Classics from the University of Reading (1996).

I can offer lessons in my home in Bampton or online via email and Skype. Skype has proved to be a highly successful way of teaching and I now teach across the globe using this medium,

Teaching Experience:

In addition to working in a school in Exeter (outlined above), I have been a highly successful English tutor for many years, originally based in the South-East. Most of my client base is private but I also work for two top London tuition agencies. I am a highly experienced tutor and currently have students in English Language & Literature from KS1 to 'A' level/IB. I also work with undergraduates & postgraduates in various disciplines, providing guidance in the structure of their essays, particularly dissertations, and academic writing. Additionally, in 2014/15 I tutored the complete AQA GCSE Classical Civilisation syllabus to a Year 9 student via Skype, who obtained an A as her final grade.

I also have experience in helping adults with their business English and have written marketing copy for the commercial sector.

Tutoring Approach:

When I tutor a student, I search for a 'tailor-made' way to help increase their self-esteem and confidence. This enhances the learning they already receive in the classroom. The study of texts offers student and tutor alike not only an opportunity to develop communication one with another but also insight into the life experiences of others, both in past generations and the wider world today.

I have helped numerous students to achieve higher than their predicted grades at both GCSE, IB and 'A' level and have many excellent references available. My students have come from the public, private and state school sectors and with varying levels of academic ability.

Bonjour!

My name is Saleha, I was born in Paris in the famous Montmartre Quarter. I spent all my student years in the City of Light and after finishing my studies at the University Paris V, I decided to move in the UK to learn English - and what a better way to learn and assimilate than interacting with people who actually speak the language, though I still have my French accent!

You can get the full flavour of a language with a native speaker, including the accents and the pronunciations of various sounds that are absent in English.

I look forward to working with you to improve your grasp of the French Language!

Personal Description:
I am currently completing a PhD at Queens University Belfast, School of Politics. I have a BSc. in Politics and Philosophy from Bristol University, and an MPhil in Development Studies (economics, politics, and sociology of developing countries) from the Institute for Development Studies, at Sussex University. I have 20 years work experience in both public and charity sectors.

Teaching Experience:

I having been providing study skills support to students with disabilities at the University of Ulster for 3 years, and work mostly with students with dyslexia.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to study skills coaching is focused on the needs of the student. I engage students in practical exercises which contribute, wherever possible, to their current study assignments and tasks. I am happy to provide study skills support for any subject within the social sciences or humanities.

Regarding specific support for the study of politics, I aim to assist students to excel academically, and to develop a genuine interest in the subject. I encourage students to relate their studies to current political news and developments.

Personal Description:
I am patient and reliable. My ability to pay maximum attention to the academic needs of students has endeared me closer to my clients (students). I feel happy when there exists a smile of satisfaction on the faces of those under my tutelage. I am punctual to my appointments.

Teaching Experience:

I have acquired a total of 8 years post-university teaching experience mainly in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Statistics and Chemistry and biology. I also have a long standing experience in teaching study skills for maximum success.
I have taught in secondary school and in Universities.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple. First of all, understanding the students' strength and weakness in the subject area of interest is important as this serves as a yard stick in measuring the magnitude of tutoring required.
This will also suggest how best to go about it. Using pictures and stories have been found to yield successful results in most cases.
Assessment of the students in the end also helps to detail how far the student has made progress.

Personal Description:
I have a Diploma in Fine Art and a Degree in Art. I am also a qualified teacher and manage a very successful full time art education business, which takes me across Hertfordshire and into London to teach children, teens and adults. My own work explores the fine arts and has been shown in galleries across Australia. When I am not teaching or coordinating arts education programmes for public spaces I spend time working on my own artworks. I love to teach art, its highly rewarding and meaningful to give students the skills to be creative.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years teaching experience with children aged 4-19 years old and 2 years experience teaching adults. I have taught for schools, galleries, courses and privately. I am currently teaching art classes for 5 schools and have several regular private students. I can teach pencil, pen, charcoal, chalk pastel, watercolour, oil and acrylic paint. I have coached many students through their GCSEs, A Levels and university portfolios. Students can either come to my studio or I can visit you!

Feedback from customers:

"Thank you so much for helping my daughter get her portfolio ready, she couldn't have done it without your guidance and its been a pleasure having you in our home. Thank you!" - Terry, mum of Tara (16 years)

"I never knew there was so much to learn about art! My 2 children loving having their very own art tutor, its developed their ability and they can now do artwork with confidence" - Maya, mum of Nicola & Jake (10 & 12 years)

"Amber was recommended to me to help my son put a portfolio together in order to apply for graphic design BA courses. The catch was, there were only two weeks to do so. Amber introduced him to new techniques and media with which he was able to create great pieces of work, she advised him on the structure and the visual layout of his portfolio and how to make it look fit for university interviews. She was amazingly accommodating and flexible at all times. With her work, she not only inspired my son but the rest of us as well - She is an amazing artist indeed! most importantly, my son got offered and accepted a place in Falmouth Universtity (his first choice). He continues to explore the techniques Amber taught him and has got confidence to venture further afield with his art. I hope to have some tutoring from Amber for myself and my daughter in the future too. A truly inspirational, calm and relaxing art adventure. Thank you Amber! We were very lucky to find you." - Renata, mum of Lucas (18 years)

Tutoring Approach:

As a qualified teacher I have a very calm approach to teaching because the journey and the end result are as important as each other. I have creative problem solving skills and I am able to encourage and support students to push past their personal creative barriers. I always bring a smile and a sense of humour to classes because its important for students to feel comfortable around me.

To every private class I teach I bring an easel or board and a range of materials to save you time and money. I spend a lot of time planning and preparing so that the student gets the best from the time spent with me.

Personal Description:
Prior to becoming a maths teacher I trained as as a Chartered Accountant and worked in Business and Finance. After having my family I moved into education and initially taught Business and Accounting at A level. I later qualified as a secondary maths teacher and have taught maths in a high achieving 11- 18 local school for 8 years as well a providing one to one tuition both at school and privately.

Teaching Experience:

Secondary Maths teacher, KS3 and KS4 since 2009,
Sixth Form tutor in Business and accounting
Private Maths tutor, KS2,KS3 and KS4 for 10 years

Tutoring Approach:

I love maths and believe everyone is capable of succeeding and also learning to love maths if they are given the confidence to do so. Many students struggle because they may have been put off maths at a early age or missed out on some essential building blocks which have limited their progress.
I believe in going to back to basics and establishing a thorough understanding of crucial concepts, using different teaching styles to suit the individual needs of the student. I enjoy getting to know my students and being able to tailor my teaching to their personalities and needs.

Personal Description:
PhD applicant in Philosophy of Religion (Cambridge), recently awarded a distinction for a masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics in Education at Heythrop College, University of London. Currently specialising in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics tuition for A level philosophy and religious studies students.

Teaching Experience:

Recently tutored a student for the Edexcel AS exam in Philosophy of Religion. Together we developed a 7 week study plan that addressed gaps in the student's knowledge in line with a realistic strategy for exam preparation. This involved tailoring resources, mainly handouts, to meet the student's needs on various topics. The student typically prepared for a session by reading a set of handouts, we would then talk through the content in session, setting up a written homework assignment on a question likely to come up in the exam, to be reviewed at the start of the next session. Sessions included guidance on how to write top level exam answers, tutoring the student on the assessment criteria for the exam specification and an approach to writing philosophical essays advocated by Dr Michael Lacewing, author of standard A level Philosophy textbooks and my lecturer at Heythrop College, as well as a sponsor of my PhD application.

Other experience
Various bits of teaching through training experiences and agency work, including teaching secondary RE from Year 7s through to Year 12s, and cover supervising, one-to-one tutoring and assistant teaching across all subjects at Key Stage 3. Trained in SAPERE's philosophical enquiry methodology, P4C (Philosophy for Children, Colleges & Communities) and as a voluntary P4C facilitator have run sessions on Ethics topics with A level Philosophy and Religious Studies students at sixth form colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to work with students' own approaches but I have found that a good way to structure revision and monitor progress over many weeks is to use an Excel workbook, shared an updated by student and tutor, with a worksheet for each study week. Each worksheet includes boxed and highlighted sections containing guidance notes on the subject covered in that study week and on writing different sorts of exam answers, as well as space for students to complete homework assignments so that they are embedded in with these notes. Over the weeks the workbook is a useful reference point for tuition sessions and can become the main source of revision notes for the student, something that is really appreciated by those who need help to organise their own learning.

My PhD proposal is in the field of analytic philosophy, which endeavours to advance theories and arguments in the clearest and most precise way possible, with words and terms used in everyday language. This is the approach I aim to take to tutoring. I haven't always been taken with philosophy, having a background in media production and wealth management and a first degree in history, so I can also draw on quite a wide set of interests and experiences to give a little colour to my tutoring.
