Personal Description:
I am 27 years old. I studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford, where I finished with a first, and I also studied for an MA at York in Post-war Recovery studies.

My main areas of interest are in philosophy, religious studies and economics. I find the philosophy of religion and ethics particularly interesting. I also have a strong interest in international development and peacebuilding.

Outside of studying, I am a keen sportsman and especially enjoy rugby, tennis and football. I love listening to music, I write poetry and I continue to enjoy reading.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a personal tutor.

While at sixth form, I was a volunteer mentor on a mentoring program for young people. For those hoping to apply to Oxbridge, I am able to provide some personal feedback and advice about the application process, gleaned from my own experiences.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring focuses on developing discussions rather than providing lectures on topics. I think the key to succeeding in any area of study is developing a passion for the topic in hand, and this is what I will hope to help discover and develop in tutees.

Personal Description:
I am a bubbly, outgoing person who loves teaching.
I was made redundant from my role on the Crime and Disorder Partnership where I was challenged to proactively tackle crime in the area.
I then decided to persue my career as a private tutor and teacher, having done it as a hobby for 3 years and found I have a passion for this field, this is now my sixth year of tutoring and have had lots of successes and am proud of all my tutees; past and present.
I can sometimes travel to you if required but prefer if I can tutor from my home.
I am available evenings and daytime and will allow single lessons or block bookings.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach maths in a secondary school and previously taught functional skills IT to level 1 and 2
I have 2 years experience in the Public Sector working with young people and adults tackling crime and disorder through engagement and educational projects.
I have previously tutored many children to GCSE Maths and can provide references if required

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual and relish the challenge of helping each boy or girl achieve their targets. I have an excellent rapport with children and all those I teach feel that I am very approachable, easy to talk to, kind and caring. I try to make learning fun.
I can provide one off sessions to tackle problem areas or intense revision help.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate from Bristol University with a Masters Degree in Mathematics, specialising in Applied Mathematics and in particular, Quantum Mechanics. I am patient and friendly, and keen to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject.
I am an avid musician and devote much of my spare time to playing piano and guitar, both of which I play in my band. I am also a big fan of going to gigs/festivals, barbeques, playing sport and hanging out with friends.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private tutor since September 2011 and have had a great deal of success, the most recent of which including students being accepted to study at both Oxford and Cambridge, all of my A-Level students achieving A/A* grades, and a mature student whom I taught Further Maths from scratch has received an offer and is now studying Physics at Surrey University.
I taught in a school in Bristol as part of my studies which included a lesson a week whereby I taught algebra to a group of students from Somalia with very limited English skills. I have also spent 3 weeks teaching and assisting in a local school in Guildford.
I have worked with students of all abilities and so am able to pitch my explanations at the appropriate level for the student, and have been praised for my ability to provide clear and concise explanations, and my friendly approach to teaching. I am young, enthusiastic and experienced in exam preparation and revision techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer teaching Maths by explaining concepts at a fundamental level, following up with well-worked examples of the theory in action. This is because in my experience, to understand something properly you need to understand not only where it came from but how it's properly applied.
I normally draw up sheets with all the vital information about a topic for the student so that they have something they can refer to quickly to find what they need. In the past I have set a few problems for the student to do in between lessons and we would then look at them together the following week, and of course I am happy to go through problems together that the student is struggling with.

Personal Description:
Currently studying full-time Pure and Applied Mathematics at the University of Aberdeen.

I am a friendly, conscientious individual who cares deeply about young people's personal and academic development.

When not working or studying, I enjoy taking care of my health through the gym and a variety of sports.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years of tutoring experience. I have personally tutored 40+ pupils of varying mathematical ability, which has allowed me to refine and become very confident in my approach.

A large number of my tutees were found through word-of-mouth from former tutees pleased with their results.

I now have quite a few reviews, I have been registered on other websites for years and would be more than happy to supply references from other past tutees for your peace of mind.

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that everyone deserves the best chance at school. However, more and more of my tutees are complaining that their schools are failing to provide that. It seems that due to funding cutbacks/lack of qualified teachers, only the most naturally gifted pupils are given the right attention and everyone else is left at the bottom of the pack.

I have no such prejudice. It does not matter to me if you are a straight A student looking for some insurance, or if you are a bottom set student who has always struggled with maths. All I expect from my tutees is their attention and a willingness to learn. If you care about your education and future prospects, then so do I.

I am available for tutoring throughout the year, even during the summer holidays for 1st/2nd year university resits.

I am available weekday evenings and at the weekend, just let me know which times would suit you. I reply very quickly.

I have a car so travelling to your home is not an issue, however I may require additional fuel money depending on your location.

Personal Description:
Dear Parent / Student,
My name is Michael.
Now an online tuition specialist.
I am a fully qualified, professional and experienced teacher and tutor of Maths and Physics - to Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, GCSE, IGCSE, AS / A2 - Level, as well as considerable experience as an examiner. I have taught and prepared students for medical school and successful Oxford and Cambridge entrance.
I offer tuition from my home in Whitton, either face - to - face tuition or online, or a mixture of the two.
Each of those options can work very well.
I will be happy to refund any referral charge levied by UK Tutors.

Teaching Experience:

With 25 + years of classroom teaching and tutoring across the full ability range from 8 years old to Adult, I am well aware of the common ( as well as the not so common ) misconceptions held by students of Physics and the difficult areas of Maths.

Over the last year I have developed my resources so that I can offer the same top quality tuition ONLINE to students anywhere in the UK and abroad as I can to face - to - face students.

Have you considered ONLINE tuition in Maths or Physics ? You might be pleasantly surprised. The technology these days enables us to have a learning experience which is just as effective as having your own, personal, tutor in a face - to - face meeting. You might like to try a free preliminary meeting online. It's free, so you have nothing to pay, nothing to lose. It just takes 30 minutes of your time.
What I do is to re - create, as closely as possible, the same learning experience as in a face - to - face meeting.

With my current online students (GCSE Maths) after some initial trepidation and months of preparation, I find it's easy to develop the same working relationship with parent and student - as I do in face - to - face, something I was sceptical about - at first, but not any more.

We use Skype for conversation. It's just like talking to parents and student around the same kitchen table! I can still share my qualifications, my certificates, my CRB / DBS, my references, and discuss the student's educational needs, just as I do face - to - face.

We also use and share an interactive online whiteboard, just like a sheet of paper between us, and of course screen - sharing technology to bring our tuition notes to the home of the student.
The student does not have to download anything to his / her computer (just Skype for free).
I use a graphics tablet and stylus to write on the whiteboard, and the student can write on it too.
We try to make the online learning experience and working relationship as similar as possible to the face - to - face experience and relationship.
It is an excellent option when travel distance is a problem OR if you would like sessions that are shorter than an hour.
Please get in touch by email or phone in the first instance.
If I'm unable to take your call please leave a short message and number and I'll return your call promptly.

Tutoring Approach:

Either Online or face - to - face, by discussion with the student I establish the needs of the student.
I collaborate with the student to devise teaching and learning strategies to suit the individual.

I offer top quality tuition - friendly, patient and reliable - to meet the needs of the individual student who wants to improve her / his grades and is prepared to work hard. Whether the student needs help with homework, coursework guidance, specific topics, revision strategies, or exam technique and practice at past exam papers, etc. . . help is available, and the student and parents WILL see improvement.

I am available for tuition during the day as well as after school.

I am based in Whitton, Twickenham. I offer tuition in my own home OR online.

Please discuss your tuition needs with me.

If you would like further details or to discuss your individual learning needs or to arrange a free consultation meeting please contact me.

Thank you for taking the time to read my advert.

Michael.

Personal Description:
Having completed my first degree in French and German at Oxford University last June, followed by a MA in medieval and early-modern history , and then a MA in Translation at Queen's University Belfast, I am currently undertaking a PhD in Translation, also at QUB.

Teaching Experience:

During the last two years of secondary school I gave frequent tuition sessions in French and German to younger students. At Oxford I gained two years' experience with Jacari, a charity that teaches English to local children of a different mother tongue. I have also given additional tuition to students of GCSE history in an Oxford school.

I spent my year abroad teaching English to pupils aged 10 to 19 at a German grammar school, and have since instructed a number of tutees of ages 8 to 65 in English Language, French, German and Italian.

Tutoring Approach:

This variety of experience has taught me the importance of varying my teaching approach according to the needs and interests of the pupil. Obviously I keep a keen eye on the intended curriculum or goals at all times, but I am used and open to changing from more formal to more informal (i.e. games-based) tutoring methods as appropriate.

Personal Description:
I am an Oxford graduate (Worcester College), with a degree in Literae Humaniores (Latin and Greek language and literature, as well as ancient and modern philosophy).

I am also a highly experienced classical musician (a singer), having gained experience in a number of world-class choral institutions in Oxford and beyond. I am trained as a choral singer and as a soloist.

I am able to tutor the following subjects:

Latin (beginner/Primary/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual or Adult Learner)
Greek (beginner/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual or Adult Learner)
Classics (beginner/Primary/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual or Adult Learner)
Philosophy (beginner/KS3/GCSE/A-Level or equivalent/casual)
Religious Studies (KS3/GCSE)

Singing (beginner to advanced - up to Grade 8 and for Adult/Casual Learners)
Music Theory (beginner to intermediate - up to Grade 5/GCSE)

I am willing and able to teach pupils one-on-one or in groups.


My academic interests include:
Renaissance Humanism and Renaissance European Scholarship
Tudor England
The Tudor Reformation
Classical Reception Studies, particularly the manipulation of the Classics in 17th Century Musical Drama.

My musical interests include:
Vocal anatomy
Pharmacokinetics of the voice
The neurophysiology of singing
17th Century Opera
Renaissance Lute Songs
Sacred music of Europe in the Renaissance.

Teaching Experience:

My main experience of teaching one-on-one is in the form of vocal tuition.

I also have experience of teaching in the classroom, where I have worked with children aged 8-11 teaching a variety of subjects (including English Booster Classes, English Literature, Reading, Egyptology and Drama).

I have a lot of experience of working with young people, with extensive experience gained from working with the Admissions department of Worcester College (at the University of Oxford) as well as working as a Choral Scholar at the College (where I had to provide an example to the young choristers of one of the choirs).

In addition to this I was a Junior Foster Carer for 11 years (from ages 7-18), where I worked alongside various members of Social Services in order to provide a stable home for children in care.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a traditional one, particularly when it comes to the teaching of Latin and Greek, which is taught by composition into the language from English and through the reading of original texts.

I ask for a tutee to try their hardest - as long as they do, they will be met with a tutor who will give their all in order to help them achieve their goal, a tutor dedicated to his teaching and his pupil.

I also incorporate modern methods into my teaching, including the use of ICT and the latest examples of Digital Humanities e.g. The Perseus Project.

Personal Description:
I am a Polish native speaker who did a degree in Spanish at the University of Sheffield. I am passionate about foreign languages and I have some experience in teaching/ tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

Last year I ran after school Spanish revisions with GCSE pupils in a secondary school in Doncatser and delivered private Spanish and English tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to tailor my lessons to learners' individual needs nad make it fun as it helps memorising new vocabulary. In my opinion learners should be immersed in new language/ culture as much as possible, therefore I always use videos, podcasts, DVDs and try to get my students to speak.

Personal Description:
I am a Masters Student studying Oil and Gas Engineering in the University of Aberdeen, UK. I was the best Mathematics student during my Primary and Secondary School education (in virtually every class), so i was among the students selected from the mathematics club to represent the school in various Mathematics competitions, of which i won some prizes. I am a calm individual who understands that everyone is unique with different speed of comprehension. I enjoy teaching Mathematics to all levels, especially the young minds because I believe practicing, solving and understanding mathematics sharpens the brain in understanding and quickly solving other problems in life as they grow. I have over two years of experience; a year in teaching secondary school students in both a government and private school, and over a year experience in teaching a few 1st year undergraduate students. I also believe that mathematics can be understood by everyone, once placed in the right environment (quiet, fun, musical,etc) . My first task would be to find out which suits the student best.

Teaching Experience:

1) Over 1 year tutoring a few 1st year Undergraduate students
2) 1 year full-time teacher in both a private and a government secondary school

Tutoring Approach:

My initial approach would be; identifying the best environment (quiet, fun,etc) suitable for the particular individual, then comprehending the individual's speed or rate of understanding. I will pick up from this point and build up the individual's confidence by explaining the basics of approaching each question while solving as many questions as possible. In this way, the student would be able to tackle or attempt similar questions at his/her level.

Personal Description:
I'm currently in the final stages of my PhD in cell and molecular biology, working on my thesis write up. I also teach on undergraduate biological science modules at the University, aiding students one to one in their laboratory practicals, providing feedback and marking coursework. I also have a BSc (1st, Hons) in Cell & Molecular Biology, having covered a range of modules including the following (all the a 1st Class standard); Advanced Topics in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology of Cancer, Laboratory Techniques for the Biosciences, Mammalian Biochemistry, Clinical Pharmacology, Plant Science, Genes & Genomes, Microbiology, Virology & Immunology.

I feel my experience of teaching students and the wide variety of science outreach projects I have worked on, make me an excellent private tutor for any undergraduate or A-level, or casual adult student wishing additional support with their studies.

I am also happy to discuss tutoring GCSE students, although I am not aware of the specifics of the content of the current syllabus.My CRB check (as carried out s part of STEM ambassador training) has expired. However if I receive multiple requests requiring one I am happy to reapply to update it.

Teaching Experience:

Specialist/Associate Lecturer, Undergraduate Practical Classes, Oxford Brookes University Oct 2010 - Current (Part time)

Teaching assistant for undergraduate laboratory and computer room based practical classes for a range of modules, in the Department of Biological and Bio-medical Sciences. Responsibilities include aiding students during a wide variety of practical classes with their experiments, calculations and written work. Role also includes marking and giving feedback on laboratory reports and records, assessment sheets and related coursework.

I have also worked on a wide range of science outreach projects. These include:

BBSRC British Bio-science Festival - Outreach event for the general public
Visions of the Future Interdisciplinary Event at the Pegasus Theatre
Oxford Brookes Science Bazaar - Family outreach event, volunteer 2011, 2012 & 2014
Fascination of Plants Day at Oxford Botanical Garden - General public outreach event
Science Oxford Science Cabaret - Family friendly outreach event

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working directly with others, preferably one on one, to help them develop their knowledge about a subject. This applies especially to biological sciences, which I'm passionate about. Combined with my range and depth of knowledge of the subject area, as well as understanding how university work is assessed and what constitutes good exam technique, I am confident to work with someone to help them achieve their full potential in the subject. I am also experienced at working with a range of learning styles and like to work with the student to see what best works for them with regards to getting the most from and improving their study. I am also a very sociable and friendly person who has a great love of science, which I think comes across in my teaching style, approaching the subject as something that can be both interesting and enjoyable to tackle learning.

Personal Description:
Im a native portuguese tutor currently living in England with a Degree and MBA in Tourism management and hospitality subjects (which can bring something extra to the student) with a passion for languages.
Although I come from Portugal many the students want to learn the brazilian portuguese and I am prepared to teach European Portuguese as well as Brazilian Portuguese.

Teaching Experience:

I have 1-year experience as tutor to all levels and interests. To groups, one-to-one or via Skype.

As a tutor I worked as Portuguese, English and other tourism subjects to primary and secondary students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning languages should be fun and exciting. I am very motivated and like to make sure my students are improving and understading all the content every day. Keep them motivated is essencial, so my teaching is more focused in conversation and exercices.

I also think the best way to teach students is to engage them, for that, I use videos, books, pictures and other resouces from the internet to facilitate the understanding of the language and culture.
