Personal Description:
I am a very experienced teacher, head of faculty, head of sixth form, examiner and writer. I have recently worked for one of the major examination boards on the new specifications for both G.C.S. E and A-Level.

During my career as a teacher I have taught philosophy and religious studies to Advanced level and English, history, religious studies, geography and citizenship to G.C.S.E. I also specialise in developing study skills and examination techniques in a range of subjects. I have prepared VI form students for university and UCAS application, including Oxbridge, and acted as a mentor to new entrants to the teaching profession.

I am a freelance writer specialising in education, social, religious and moral issues and I also create e-learning resources for an international educational e-learning-platform provider.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience at both G.C.S.E. and Advanced level has been extensive. I am an examiner for two major exam boards and have diverse experience of creating original teaching resources tailored to the needs of pupils.

I have spent most of my career teaching across the ability and age range in 11-18 comprehensive schools although I have also taught in the independent sector.

I am also a part-time on-line tutor for one of the Oxford colleges.

I have also served on several different boards of governors as a foundation, teacher and parent governor.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the key to success for most pupils is to develop their skills and self-confidence to enhance their ability to successfully complete their examination by developing study skills and examination techniques.

My first session with a tutee and their parents is to establish their needs and goals. Together we draw up a plan of the work which we will pursue. This plan will be reviewed regularly and a progress report compiled.

Each of the subsequent sessions comprises of:
review of any homework set
review of any problems which have occurred that week
lesson on a topic previously decided upon
My primary aim is to help my tutees overcome any difficulties which they are having with their work and to help them to achieve their goals both in the short-term and the long term. Secondly, I aim to give my tutees confidence in their own abilities and to help them develop their skills necessary to succeed in their examinations.
Relevant homework is set as a means of reinforcing the development of skills since assessment and feedback procedures largely rely on this.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
*NOW BOOKING FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2016-17*

Thank you for looking at my profile.

I am a full time, professional tutor, specialising in English, maths and general study skills. I achieve excellent results and students look forward to my sessions. As detailed below, I have a wealth of experience and success working with students with Special Educational Needs, and other difficulties which have prevented them from accessing the curriculum fully.

I have a very calm, patient and friendly approach to tuition. I will explain and revisit as many times as needed and use a variety of methods to make tricky topics memorable. I use a range of resources and approaches, tailored to student preferences and different learning styles.


I am qualified teacher with a BEd teaching degree and a Masters degree in education, plus other courses attended to further my professional development.

MEd: I have a Masters Degree in Education, completed in 2013.
The modules I studied are as follows:
`Educational enquiry` (research in education) (2013)
`Investigating language in action`(supporting learners of English) (2012)
`Difficulties in literacy development` (specifically dyslexia) (2008)

British Dyslexia Association and Unicorn Maths- `Dyscalculia Plus` (2012)

BEd Primary with Qualified Teacher Status (subject specialism English) (2003)

BTEC National Diploma in Childhood Studies (Learning and development 0-8 years) (1999)

9 GCSE`s all A-C:
Child Development, English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, French, History, Religious Education, Science. (1997)

Teaching Experience:

My specialist subjects are English, maths and Special Educational Needs.

I have held a number of roles:

*private tutor
*university Specialist Tutor for dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism
*primary school class teacher for nursery to Y2 (inner city school; many children had behavioural/emotional issues and did not have English as their first language)
*cover teacher for nursery to Y6
*subject co-ordinator for Personal, Social and Health Education
*subject co-ordinator for music



As well as teaching, I have worked in a variety of settings as a nursery nurse and nanny. I have been able to build excellent relationships with parents and children and am still in touch with families that I have worked with over the years.



References: available on request

Tutoring Approach:

I support students with many different needs and situations. These include:

*dyslexia
*dyspraxia
*dyscalculia (difficulty with maths)
*self esteem or confidence issues
*children who struggle at school due to emotional or behavioural issues
*children who have missed school for various reasons
*children who are home educated
*adults who want to `catch up` or improve their English and maths
*college and university students who need support with essay writing, proofreading and exam revision techniques


Over the past 4 years in my role as a tutor, my students have made excellent progress in terms of confidence, catching up with age-related expectations and achieving the desired level or above in 11+ or Year Six SATs. I have a loyal student base and much of my work now comes from existing student recommendations.


Recent successes:

Children who have not responded to tuition in the past have really engaged with the subject and made good progress.

Children who were struggling with Year 6 SATs have achieved at least one level higher than predicted.

Those tutored for 11+ exams have passed and gained entry to their chosen school (Two to Wolverhampton Grammar, one to King Edward`s Birmingham).

Feedback from a Masters level student on completion of her dissertation:

I would like to express my deepest thanks to my support tutor Zoe whose support has been most invaluable, without which I could not have possibly completed this project, and I am forever grateful for her help.

Personal Description:
I am a well published Stem Cell Scientist at Imperial College London, currently working on regenerative medicine-based solutions for Osteoarthritis. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of biomedical research, biology and chemistry teaching and scientific writing. I have been fascinated with the way human mind works and learn - having tried several teaching techniques with my students here at Imperial College, I am confident that students under my guidance and their hard work usually stay within top 5% of the class.

Teaching Experience:

I have had a number of MSc and MRes students in the past and have had primary, secondary, GCSE and A-level, and college teaching experience in the past. Currently I am tutoring a number of GCSEs, A-levels, undergraduates and masters students and lab-based research projects / theses.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student has his / her positives and negatives - I first analyse them and then slowly work on their negative points (with a good push to their confidence levels). Additionally, I believe for understanding any science subject (biology, chemistry or physics), learning fundamentals is extremely important for students to further understand complexity of life (more important if they choose to do biology / biomedical science / medicine / life science). So, my approach has always been understanding things more analytically.

  • Reading & Writing skills
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (30 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (30 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)

View Clare's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a full time professional tutor, an examiner for iGCSE, ex-University Lecturer from the University of Nottingham and the immediate past Vice-President of the Tutors' Association.

I hold a PhD from Imperial College London and have a strong academic track record having previously led cutting-edge industrial and academic research in science and statistics. My scientific research has been published extensively in international peer-reviewed journals and my work has been cited almost 2000 times within the scientific literature. Whilst I am now a full time tutor, I also remain research active. I serve on the Editorial Boards of four international journals and still co-author research publications. This means my knowledge is not purely book-based, but founded on an extensive background as a successful female scientist.

I enjoy working with students of varying ages and abilities and take pride in encouraging students to reach their full potential. I am patient and understanding in my approach, which I will adapt to meet the strengths and needs of individual learners. I have an up-to- date knowledge of the national curriculum, enabling me to teach biology, chemistry, physics and maths at GCSE level and above.

I have years of experience as a tenured University Lecturer where I taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have supervised numerous PhD and MRes students to successful completion of their thesis. Having interviewed numerous UCAS candidates for degree places, I can also offer advice to hone your personal statement.

Teaching Experience:

I am a full-time professional tutor and have seven years experience in private tuition.

I am the immediate past Vice-President of The Tutor's Association (2015-2016), the professional body representing the tuition industry. As a member of the Tutors Association, I have also signed up to their code of ethics, code of conduct and my qualifications, references, experience and DBS have been externally checked and verified.

I was a Lecturer at the University of Nottingham for nearly a decade where I also sat on the University examination board for the award of the undergraduate pharmacy degree (MPharm). I am now a full-time personal tutor with five years experience and over 100 GB of teaching resources which I use to support my teaching.

I also have also taught in school at secondary level. I am familiar with all the major examination boards (AQA, OCR, EdExcel, IB). I have worked with children who are gifted and talented and with special educational needs such as Asperger Syndrome, autism, ADHD, partial hearing and dyslexia. Having lived and worked abroad for a number of years, I also have experience of working with students for whom English is an additional language.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in taking a very individual approach to tutoring, adapting approaches and resources to fit the needs of the individual. Prior to commencing tuition, we will agree tuition goals and I will work with these to develop a personalized scheme of learning. During tuition I will monitor student progress and keep records of this so that learning and attainment can be tracked and approaches can be continually adapted to meet the developing needs of the learner. However, most importantly of all, I believe learning should be fun. I am friendly and approachable and I work hard to ensure that students enjoy having tuition, which ultimately will maximise the progress they make.

A 5% discount is offered to all students paying monthly in advance.

Personal Description:
Highly qualified and experienced international language teacher who specialises in teaching Spanish, Ukrainian, Russian and English as Foreign/Additional Languages. I am approachable and confident to teach languages from early years to higher university levels. I build positive teaching-learning relationships with students from different age groups, diverse social backgrounds and varied degrees of linguistic ability. I tutor in Lowestoft area as well as provide online e-learning experiences. I am available to tutor weekdays, Saturdays and evenings throughout holidays as well as term time.

Teaching Experience:

Over 23 years of experience. I have worked in both mainstream and private schools tutoring one-to-one, small groups and full classes with students of different abilities in both secondary and primary school levels. I have also taught SEN students in groups and individually. I provided lessons of English and Spanish as Foreign Languages to organizations in South America and Ukraine.

SPANISH

I offer training in Spanish at different linguistic levels - from basic to most complicated grammar issues (university level) with plenty of conversational practice. Spanish is my natural language. I worked as a "Spanish into English" translator/interpreter for the Dep. of Science in South America and as a teacher in Extremadura in Spain. My knowledge of Spanish-Speaking culture will enrich our lessons in a way that you will be able to learn the most important shades of meanings as well as Spanish colloquial expressions. This would allow you to feel confident in Castellano and to avoid unconfortable situations while travelling to Spanish speaking countries.

SEN, SYNTHETIC PHONICS for READING and WRITING; ENGLISH as a FOREIGN LANGUAGE, RUSSIAN AND UKRAINIAN (native ability)

I also provide tuition in areas such as: Reading and Writing in English -Summer Holiday Practice, synthetic phonics (children 4+); Grammar, Conversation, Exam Preparation in English, Russian and Ukrainian as Foreign Languages.
I am an official Synthetic Phonics Trainer for Ukraine. I have run numerous language clubs in England and coordinated my own language school in Ukraine. I can help your child to significantly improve his reading and writing skills in English, using varied Phonics Schemes in a fun way. I teach blending and segmenting, reading practice, tricky words, dictations, reading for meaning, guided reading. I will assess your child according to the latest assessment criteria.

Summer Holiday Phonics help is available both in small groups and individually.


Trained at Kiev Linguistic University, Ukraine; Open University, Anglia Ruskin University, England; Javeriana University, Colombia - South America; Honours Degree in Linguistics; DELE Diploma of Spanish, Diploma in Teaching of Spanish as a Foreign Language and translation. CRB checked. References are available upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

I adopt a flexible approach to teaching, depending on what the student hopes to achieve. I have always got on well with my students and try to make my lessons fun, friendly and as motivating as possible, involving techniques such as interactive communicative situations, games, quizzes, songs, reading and writing comprehensions, cultural enrichment, essay writing skills, etc. Before the course, I assess the students' needs and their levels; explain the scheme of work and discuss with parents their child's progress. Group lessons can be agreed at a cheaper price.

Personal Description:
Ola! Tudo bem?

I am Alexsandra, I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker, a fully qualified and certified language teacher who has been teaching Brazilian Portuguese for more than 15 years.

I really LOVE what I do.

Over the years I have met many children, usually born to mixed parents or outside Brazil, who unfortunately cannot speak Portuguese.

I have also met adults, who regret not to have learned Portuguese from their parents when they were a child.

Some parents also regret not to have taught Portuguese to their children for whatever reason when they had the chance to do it.

Then I decided to help Brazilian parents teach Portuguese to their children while they are still young. Children can learn a language very easily if they are exposed to it, but they still need your help, especially if you live abroad.

Whenever I go to Brazil on holiday, I always buy books, CDs and DVDs for children so my students can increase their knowledge of Portuguese and also learn more about the Brazilian culture through stories, songs and movies.

Speaking to your child only in Portuguese (your native language) is a great gift and an asset you can give to your child.

Teaching Experience:

Have you been to Brazil and now you want to keep practicing the language? Going to Brazil for a lovely holiday? I can help you.

I have a degree in Portuguese and English Language and Literature and used to teach Portuguese and English in Brazil until I moved to the UK in 2013. Since then, I have been teaching Brazilian Portuguese ( private lessons ). Teaching is my passion and I always try to present the language in a fun and effective way making use of a wide range of resources, especially songs, to enhance the learning process.
I hold formal qualifications to teach Portuguese and I have experience in teaching Portuguese as a foreign language. My personal qualities as a language tutor are:

- Enthusiasm

- Reliability

- Creativity

- Experience

I have taught students of all ages and abilities and I am really passionate about teaching languages. It is a real pleasure for me to see the development of my students` language skills.

Portuguese is a wonderfully expressive and fascinating language and can be useful for education, travel and business.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer face to face Portuguese Language lessons. My courses are tailored to individual needs.

My Portuguese lessons emphasize both the culture and the literature of Brazil, and include classes on popular culture, music & cinema. My personal language lab has a varied collection of both Brazilian films as well as music. I also offer options for a "Tarde no Cinema", where students can get together and watch Brazilian films.

Each student has a different way of learning or wants to learn the language for a specific purpose, so it's really important that you let me know why do you want to learn Portuguese, if you speak any other foreign language, if you want to focus on writing, speaking, understanding or all three, if you have a deadline to be fluent in Portuguese, how many lessons per week are you willing to take.

If you are beginning to learn Portuguese or if you already have an intermediate or advanced level, I'll be happy to help you out with whatever you need. I can explain grammatical points, practice vocabulary and most importantly help you develop your oral proficiency.

I have a wide variety of teaching resources and I try to make my lessons as engaging and motivating as possible.

Please contact me for any enquiries.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Obrigada!

Personal Description:
Hi,

I have many years teaching experience at every level from Key Stage 3 to post graduate.

During these years I have become acutely aware of how valuable it is for young learners to progress to secondary education with a good grasp of key skills, particularly in Maths. Since retiring from full time teaching I am focusing on working with primary age students to help them develop these skills.

Teaching Experience:

Maths teaching in a number of secondary schools at GCSE level + Key/Core Skill Numeracy at college level.

Tutoring Approach:

I see Maths as a language. In simple terms the language of numbers (let's not get too bogged down in the tricky stuff like algebra at this stage). As with all languages, if it's one you're familiar with it's pretty straightforward. If it's a 'foreign' language it can be a complete mystery.

Unfortunately all too many young people progress to secondary school feeling uneasy about their understanding of Maths and therefore develop a mistrust or even fear of the subject. The longer such reservations are held the more deeply ingrained they become. A fear of Maths developed while in primary school can hold learners back at all subsequent levels.

My aim is to help young learners develop a positive and confident relationship with the subject at the earliest possible age.

Personal Description:
Associate Chartered Accountant with the ICAEW and first class mathematics graduate from the University of Warwick. Have enjoyed studying mathematics and finance academically and for pleasure for over a decade, including helping others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for the subjects along the way. I'm also a proud educational volunteer as a Non-Executive Director and School Governor of a Secondary Academy. Mathematics and education aside, I'm a book lover, piano player and keen (but not quite pro) skier.

Teaching Experience:

Non-Executive Director and School Governor of a Secondary Academy, serving on the Finance and Teaching/Learning committees and as a Governor in charge of the Mathematics department. I've also helped others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for mathematics for over a decade.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to prepare and inspire each student to want to understand the questions and to ultimately explain the answers to me. I constantly ask questions that encourage them to strip each question back to its mathematical basics, enabling them to build upon their knowledge to reach the answer, having fully understood how they arrived at it. Studying mathematics (and finance) for over a decade, and helping others to excel in the subject along the way, has taught me that confidence and enjoyment are key; and confidence and enjoyment are exactly what I instill in each of my students.

Subjects
  • Accounting
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)
  • Maths
  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am nineteen years old, entering my second year of a BA(H) degree in Literature at University of Highlands and Islands, Perth College campus. I am extremely enthusiastic, particularly in English, but also in Mathematics. I intend to do a Masters at the end of my course, and then move on to a post-graduate in Secondary School Teaching to become an English teacher. I trained in Irish dance for 7 years and have been a member of Girl-Guiding Scotland for 15 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have 5 years experience working with children and teenagers and taught Irish dance for two years. I am an enthusiastic teacher and can communicate coherently both verbally and in writing. I have always found aiding someone's learning very rewarding, especially when they achieve their desired results.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to assess my approach on an individual basis, however ideally, I would spend the time approaching both exam content and folio work for those to whom it is applicable and chronologically through the curriculum, for those whom it is not.
