Personal Description:
I have been a journalist for 25 years and have a love of the English language. I have also written several books. I decided to start teaching English as a Foreign Language last year because I love English grammar and wanted a new challenge. Now I have the advantage of being a writer of English as well as a teacher which enables me to help people with both speaking and writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have qualified on the Trinity College, London, TESOL course at Universal Language Training in Woking. During the course we gave over six hours of teaching and subsequently I have been teaching on a one to one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to get the student to do most of the work, speaking and writing English, and thinking for themselves rather than all the prompting coming from me. I tailor the work to their needs, so if it is a business client we look a the situations they encounter in their work and using role play we practise English in the workplace.

  • GCSE or Standards (£28 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£28 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Graduated from Oxford University 2 years ago, studying Engineering Science in which I achieved a First. I am currently working as an engineer for WSP in London. I used to be a competitive swimmer. I was a British record holder, British Champion, took 2 years out of university to train full time in the lead up to London 2012 Olympics, so I am accustomed to good self-discipline and hope to inspire similar drive and determination in academia with the students that I work with. At A-level I studied Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Latin, achieving A grade in all of them and achieved 9 A* grades at GCSE. I would describe myself as a very relaxed, friendly and approachable person and am very patient.

Teaching Experience:

I have a dyslexic younger brother who I tutored a lot for GCSE maths and science. I have also tutored a several other students for GCSE, AS and A-Level Maths and Physics. At school I used to help explain various concepts to fellow students.

Tutoring Approach:

It would work best if the tutee contacted me in advance, outlining where they're having trouble and what they'd like to go over. Then in the tutorials it is best if we work from the tutee's book but I have many I could bring along if they don't have one, and, from my experience, the best method of revising is practice, so after I have explained the concept we will work though some problems together until they have a firm understanding of what's going on.

Personal Description:
I am a 31-year old female languages graduate with a BA(Hons) 2:1 in Modern European Languages from Durham University and a Trinity CertTESOL certificate.. I am approachable and friendly. I believe everyone has the capacity to learn a language and my job as a tutor is to help unlock that potential so you enjoy the learning experience.

Teaching Experience:

I've previously tutored French up to GCSE level and Spanish and Italian up to A-Level standard. I am a TESOL qualified English teacher with experience working abroad and have also tutored primary school children in languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor my approach to the student, depending on their age, level and what they hope to get out of the sessions, as well as their preferred learning style.For younger children I would tend to include more activities, whereas for students studying for exams I would focus more on helping with coursework, revising topics covered in class, and exercises.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Zoe. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford, studying English Language and Literature at St Peter's College.

I'm an experienced tutor and I believe that with a good, solid education everyone's opportunities in life become better. I am patient and very committed to getting the best from my students.

Prior to university I attended Streatham and Clapham High School (8-16), and Wallington County Grammar School (16-18).

I completed A-Levels in English, Medieval History, French, Classical Civilisation and Philosophy AS Level.

My main interest is English Literature but I am ever-keen to use my French, and am also passionate about History, both ancient and modern. At GCSE level I opted to study primarily languages, namely French, German, Latin and Ancient Greek, and I am so grateful for the skills and linguistic understanding these diverse subjects have given me.

I am a keen reader, theatre-goer and traveller; I also enjoy sports, particularly running, netball and cycling. I live in southwest London and am happy to travel.

Teaching Experience:

I have plenty of experience tutoring people of all ages, and am currently specialising in English, French and History lessons and entrance/university interview preparation lessons.

I have worked as a temporary assistant at Faulkner House School in South Kensington during my Easter holiday from university in 2010 (children aged 3-11).

At school I worked on a mentor programme helping students from younger years with their French speaking practice and also with extra English.

I have a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification.

I worked with a local Brownie pack from 2006-8 which involved working with children aged 7-10, running a variety of crafts activities and games.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in the ability of each person to achieve academic success through hard work, and also understand the need for patience and perseverance to succeed.

Having benefited from one-on-one tutoring during my own education for those subjects I struggled with at school, I have first hand experience of the importance of a good tutor and just how much difference one can make.

I have a real passion for the subjects I studied at university and at A-Level and I communicate that, whilst simultaneously providing relevant and informed tuition sessions.

Personal Description:
A Cardiff University Physics graduate (BSc, MPhys.) and qualified FE lecturer in mathematics and physics.

Teaching Experience:

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated with a First Class in BSc Mathematics and am currently training to be a Maths teacher, focusing on KS4 and KS5.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently training to be a Secondary Mathematics Teacher. I have experience giving KS3, KS4 and first year undergraduate Maths tuition. I have worked as a Mathematics Outreach Ambassador, working with primary and secondary school students, and running Mathematics workshops and masterclasses.
I also give instrumental and vocal tuition to students of a variety of ages and abilities. I hold an enhanced DBS (new version of enhanced CRB).

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and patient. I have a flexible approach to tutoring, adapting to suit the students way of learning and best address their weaker areas. In my first few lessons I aim to give students tasks that they can understand and complete within the lesson, building their confidence in their abilities. This lays the foundations to progress on to more difficult topics, and develop the students own ability and skills set, so they can begin to tackle new, unfamiliar areas of the topic themselves.

Personal Description:
My name is María. I´m a enthusiastic and motivated teacher willing to help you to learn everything you want to know about Spanish language and culture. I believe in a practice-based learning. I think every language is alive and we shouldn't learn it as a dead theory.

Teaching Experience:

I'm a qualified teacher with a Spanish-teaching title recognized by University of Barcelona and International House World Organization. I also have a Masters in teaching secondary and languages education (PGCE) and a Bachelors in Fine Arts. I have experience working in secondary schools and adult education in the UK.

I think Art and Language are very close to each other, both of them play an important roll in the world's communication system and in the development of society. Art&Language are pure culture and a very important thing in the development of children too.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that teaching Spanish is much more than teaching a bunch of grammar rules, it's teaching our art, gastronomy, our understanding of life… in short, our culture.

I use a communicative approach to the language, so grammar is always in context and at the service of real communication skills.

I focus on the objectives and needs of each student or small group. In the first lesson I will give you a level test and a content negotiation where you can tell me what grammar and cultural topics you are more interested in and how you prefer to learn them. You are the protagonist of your own education!

To teach in the best possible way I use a wide range of activities that I prepare to fit you.

Personal Description:
I am an Imperial College graduate in Biomedical Engineering (masters).
Being born in Italy from Italian parents, I'm a native Italian speaker. I have lived in the UK since I was 6 years old, I attended the European School in Culham, near Oxford, before moving to London for university.
I am a friendly and outgoing person, when I'm not busy with uni work I like to be in the company of friends, enjoy cinema, live music and playing/watching sports, particularly football and squash.

Teaching Experience:

Over my first two years at university, I helped some As and A-level students from my old school, especially during their exam period (i.e.: one on one revision sessions, helping out with coursework and writing sets of revision notes) in Maths, Biology and Physics.
Early in 2011 I joined the Blue Tutors agency, where my teaching skills were assessed and received full accreditation.
In October 2013 I did weekly one-on-one GCSE maths lessons for the month leading up to an exam. As well as the lessons I made revision notes for the student, whose mark increased from C- to B.
From January to April 2014 I was Project Coordinator and voluntary teacher in weekly extra curricular activity "Code Club", a basic computer programming workshop at Pimlico Academy. Generally about a dozen 13-14 year old students attended.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is generally quite friendly: I believe that at a subconscious level, a student will be much more inclined to listen to and learn from a person they trust and appreciate. However, I also believe the teaching style must be suited to the student, and largely depends on the subject being taught.
A particular technique which I have learnt from Blue Tutors and have tried to implement ever since, is to try and lead the student to the answer by asking the right questions, rather than just giving him the answer.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor and current A level and GCSE teacher with over 22 years experience.
I have had a lot of success with my private tutoring, having helped many students achieve the grades they need to gain entry to the university courses of their choice - including medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry.
I have helped students in all the main exam boards including AQA, OCR and Edexcel

I have excellent communication skills and a very approachable manner which quickly puts students at ease.

I am married and have four children, three of which have passed through A levels so I know what it is like as a parent and teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a secondary and sixth form for 24 yrs and am currently a GCSE and A level Biology and Psychology teacher as well as a sixth form tutor.

I have been tutoring Biology and Psychology for over 20 yrs with great success with students from both the state and private sector. I have helped students from Collyer's; The Weald School; Steyning Grammer; Seaford College; Worth School; Farlington and Reigate Grammer to name a few.

My subject knowledge is very good being educated to BSc (Hons) in Biology and MSc in Psychology

I am very flexible and will either tutuor in my own home or am happy to travel to you.

Tutoring Approach:

My main focus has been tutoring and teaching A level Biology and more recently Psychology.and have been very successful in helping students of all abilities to improve their grades to allow them to make their next step in their education.

My strengths are that I have very good communication skills and put students at ease allowing for the greatest progress to be made.

I focus on two main areas. Firstly in breaking down theory areas to make it understandable. I get students to learn key words and use revision spider diagrams to see the overview of difficult topics so they don't get lost in the theory. Then I use these spider diagrams to help them select accurately the correct theory areas to answer exam based questions.

Secondly I focus on exam technique, deconstructing questions to focus on how to structure an answer and then to select the correct theory to use in the answer.

I can offer a selection of services.

A) simple tuition: focusing of understanding specific areas as the student needs

B). Tutoring programme: setting up and organising a tutoring programme for several lessons that will cover, systematically, a larger area of the subject.

C). Revision programme: creating a revision programme with the student and managing the students revision programme in the subject (s). This will take the student up to the exam.

I Include setting and marking exam based H/W's.

I also include revision material and workbooks as well as past paper packs with mark schemes.

I have been very successful with students from those wanting to take up Medicine, Veterinary or Dentistry courses, to those who just want a pass to everyone in between.

Personal Description:
My name is Kieron, and I am a second year Psychology student. I am achieving first class grades so far, and am holding a number of positions within the University in addition to my studies. These include mentoring, research assistant work, lecturer's teaching assistant, along with student representative work and student engagement officer work.

I believe I can break down topics to easy-to-understand segments, and have experience of working with many different people, of varying levels of proficiency within Psychology.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of mentoring 1st and 2nd year Psychology students, on a variety of topics such as biological psychology, cognitive psychology, research methods (using spss), and have delivered guest lectures to 1st year students.
I have also assisted in MSc modules in seminars and workshops.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that no topic too complicated when broken down. Even the most complex processes in the brain can be turned into interesting and manageable topics.

As a current mentor at my university, I appreciate the fact that not all students engage with teachers, and so I believe that my approach can bridge that gap. My grades are high and I know what is required to do well in Psychology, and so I can translate that into tailoring my tutoring to only include the things that will result in higher marks and a deeper understanding of core psychological principles.

Personal Description:
I hold a BSc (Hons) Mathematics, 1st class from the University of Manchester as well as an MA Music, Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music.

I grew up in Watford, studying at Watford Grammar School for Boys. I achieved 4 A Levels grade A including Maths and Further Maths, 1 AS Level grade A, and 11 GCSEs, 9 grade A* and 2 grade A.

I am a mathematics tutor and freelance classical musician (viola), with my work featuring performance with top UK orchestras, chamber music and outreach work as well as a teaching portfolio working with children and adults.

In my spare time, I enjoy astronomy, cycling and playing the euphonium with the Army Reserve Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently relocated to Liverpool and am looking to build up a tutoring profile here. In previous academic years I have had the following distribution of students:

2015-16: 7 A Level, 5 GCSE
2014-15: 3 A Level, 5 GCSE

All of my students have achieved over and above their expected grades.

In addition, I teach the violin and viola to children and adults, from beginner to diploma level. I should clarify that I don't teach academic music, rather am happy teaching instrumental music to the age groups listed. I am able to combine mathematics tuition and music teaching for individuals who would be interested.

Tutoring Approach:

For those studying A Level and GCSE Mathematics, it is very important to be able to identify areas which require work and bring these to the attention of a tutor; my approach to mathematics tutoring is a student lead approach. I also like to instigate discussions about general study and revision technique which can be transferred to other subjects as well. Given the appropriate contact time with me, students are always prepared for exams well in advance.

I offer an introductory session at no fee. This is for myself, the student and parent(s) to get to know each other, and also to discuss where the student would like help.

My music teaching approach is focused on general musicianship and encouraging the enjoyment of playing. I do work on grades with my students but prefer to allow them to develop to a point that I know they will be able to pass their exams easily. Many students who are taught with too much of a focus on grades give up and stop playing altogether, and this is the reason for my approach.
