Personal Description:
I have over 10 year experience working as a Chemistry teacher and I currently work in an Outstanding Sixth Form Grammar School. I am experienced with tutoring A Level and GCSE students and I have an excellent record of examination results. I completed a Science PGCE at Edgehill University in 2005 and graduated from UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology) with a Chemistry BSc (Hons)

I am friendly, confident and approachable person. I have up to date knowledge of the current specifications for AQA and understand the demands that the new linear courses have on the students. I am able to work flexible hours after school or weekends to fit in with your needs and I offer sessions with prepared resources to ensure that your tutoring needs are fulfilled. My lessons are structured to optimise time to the benefit of the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught AQA A level and GCSE Chemistry in secondary schools for over 10 years and am judged as an Outstanding teacher. I have a large bank of resources and experience from this.
I have attended many AQA standardisation meetings and I am confident with the structure and style of examination questions. I receive up to date information regarding the new specification and have recently attended AQA's feedback on AS for A level Chemistry 2016.
There is much more emphasis and demand on assessment of practical skills and working in a school which has passed the inspection by AQA for the practical endorsement as well as attending an AQA course that focused on the required practicals and their assessment provides me with up to date knowledge that only a teacher can have.
I have been tutoring students for the last 5 years and have been able to help many students to improve their confidence and achieve their target grade allowing them to gain their place at university. I would be happy to provide any references if required from the parents of these students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed, friendly approach to tutoring and use a variety of resources to help aid memory of difficult concepts. I use a lot of exam questions to practice exam technique and build confidence.
I enjoy adapting my teaching style to meet individual student needs and I am always willing to make new resources and revision aids to support my students.
I will bring copies of all resources free of charge.
I charge 35 per hour for home visits or 30 if you travel to me.

Personal Description:
Well, hello there! My name is Terianne. I am American. From near New York City. I lived in New York City for a long time. Then I moved to Rome and now here I am in fantastic magical Brighton! Well, in Hove, actually! I ride my bicycle to get around, I do yoga, (Bikram hot yoga and other kinds). I organize comedy nights, I write a blog and nothing makes me happier than meeting new people and this is the right place to do it!

Teaching Experience:

I taught for ten years in Rome, Italy at a school called Wall Street School of English. I loved teaching there. The students were fantastic. In addition to grammar and conversation classes, I started a Drama Club and we did shows for the rest of the school at Christmas. I miss it.

I have also taught at Brighton Language College and I have done a lot of private tutoring. Mostly adults or young adults and some children. I have also taught acting and improvisation so my classes are seriously fun. Both serious AND fun.

Tutoring Approach:

I love the English language and I love teaching! English so weird and wacky and expressive. (Maybe you will need a dictionary to look up those words! :-) ) Unfortunately for you, English can be also a bit difficult. I know. But let's not focus on that. Let's focus on having fun, let's focus on the joy of learning and then what will happen is that the silly mistakes we make will only make us laugh. We will laugh a lot and you will learn a lot. That's the best way to learn.

As for me, I am a trained actress and comedienne so I will always keep you entertained and the lessons will always be lively. And I expect you to do your homework! Just because you hire a teacher, doesn't mean you're going to learn: you have to do the work!

Personal Description:
Personally, the skills I possess, are passion, organisation, empathy and at some time enjoying with my tutees the most of their successes.

My background is in Physics with abilities to communicate in an enjoyable way with pupils. I believe Physics and Maths are the key to understand the Universe and most what is happening around the world related to several aspects in Sciences.

One of my hobbies is managing and coaching a local football team's children under 12. This is giving me the opportunity to understand how important is an effective communication, passionate and fun while teaching the future minds.

Teaching Experience:

I am tutoring in Maths,Statistics and Physics to pupils from secondary school up to University. Those opportunities are being fantastic for me and the pupils are having much success.

Whilst working as professional Geoscientist, I coached less experienced geoscientists. Listening and planning successfully according to their needs gave them the right target achievements.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple.I ask each tutee their needs and then I use my experience and abilities for solving the critical needs.

Personal Description:
An experienced, intelligent, enthusiastic and focused teacher who is committed to safeguarding and promoting the education and well-being of students at all times. I am passionate about giving students the best and easier methods of tackling basic problems in Maths, Physics and Electronics, and enjoys mentoring students to achieve their career goals. I am able to establish a supportive relationship with not only students but also their parents with the aim of enhancing and reinforcing a student's independence and self-worth. I am someone who is fundamentally committed to good practise and giving back to the society through effective teaching and mentoring methods.

Teaching Experience:

Graduate Assistant, University of Nigeria, Nsukka (2016-Date):

As graduate assistant in the department of Electrical Engineering, University of Nigeria, I taught basic electrical/ electronic engineering modules to undergraduate students.

Part-Time Tutor (2008-2013, 2015-2016):

Taught secondary school students preparing for General Certificate Exam (Equivalent of GCSE), Physics, Mathematics, Electronics, and Statistics.
Also taught university students, mathematics and statistics.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and tackling new and unfamiliar problems. I do this by teaching them the basic concepts using analogies and real world examples. I do not teach nor encourage students to memorise things rather I encourage them to write what they know in their own words in order to boost their confidence and to evaluate their level of understanding.

While tutoring, I usually solve a lot of exam-style examples and pose questions repeatedly in order to evaluate and perfect the student's understanding of basic concepts. I do not bark on students when they fail questions rather I politely correct them in order not to dampen their morale.

I believe passionately in the huge benefit that comes with personal tutoring to students and I am always excited seeing my students graduate with high grades and achieve their full potential in life.

Personal Description:

Hoping to tutor someone who share the same interets with me.

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge PhD student studying the fascinating complexity of fish behavior. I am a supervisor in zoology at Cambridge, for which I won the award for best supervisor in the sciences, and have worked as a tutor for all grade levels. I love animals and nature, and write fiction in my spare time. I come from a big family and am used to spending time with children and adults of all ages.

Teaching Experience:

My first formal tutoring job was during my undergraduate degree at Harvard University, where I worked as a peer tutor for biology, physics, and chemistry modules I had taken for my course. Working with peers was an excellent way to build communication skills to best explain complex concepts in a variety of scientific fields. My interests are not limited to science, however- I completed a minor degree in English and earned a certificate in Spanish as a part of my undergraduate education. I had the chance to tutor these subjects (in addition to maths and sciences) as a tutor for Varsity Tutors, a tutoring company in America. I worked for Varsity Tutors for about two years, tutoring students in person near my family home in Chicago for one year and online during the first year of my PhD. I am presently a PhD student in Cambridge, and I began supervising Cambridge students in the fall of 2016. I supervised two modules, both in Evolution and Behavior, and had the wonderful experience of teaching several groups of students for three terms (two courses and revision supervisions prior to exams). Building a connection with these students and watching them develop as scholars and as people was incredibly rewarding. I feel lucky to have taught them, and they nominated me for a Cambridge University Students' Union (CUSU) student-led teaching award. CUSU received about 600 nominations for the student-led teaching awards, and I won the award for best supervisor in the sciences.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor with the Bureau of Study Counsel at Harvard, Varsity Tutors, and as a supervisor at Cambridge, I have found that one of the most important aspects of my role as a tutor is to connect personally with students to tailor my lessons to their learning styles and interests while bolstering their self-confidence. I have received some touching messages from parents of my students reiterating this fact (the students that stick out in my memory are a 14-year-old student I tutored in Advanced Placement Psychology who had become disheartened due to an ineffective teacher, and an 18-year-old basketball-focused student I tutored in English who developed his interest in writing and was considering studying poetry at university). I think that empowering the student to master the material is a very important part of being an effective tutor.
