Personal Description:
Hello.

I am a graduate of Cambridge University. I was previously at a successful, all-girls, private school.

I have top grades in a wide range of GSCEs. I took Spanish, Latin, Ancient Greek and General Studies at A Level and passed with high A grades. I have a first class degree in Classics and Oriental Studies (Middle Eastern and Islamic)

People describe me as friendly and sociable as well as organised and efficient. In my Cambridge college I held various positions of responsibility.

Teaching Experience:

I also have lots of experience as a private tutor teaching all ages and ability ranges.

Most recently I was working as a full time teacher of English at the National School of Aleppo, Syria. I had two grade 6 classes and 4 grade 10 and 11 classes.

During July '08 I taught English as a foreign language at a school in Dubai, UAE. I had my own form class but during the school day I saw 60 children between the ages of 11 and 15.

I have also taught Shakespeare-based workshops to English Primary School children and Japanese High School and University Students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and supportive as a tutor; encouraging my pupils to stretch themselves and achieve their best.

Although I am only young, I feel that I have the right amount of maturity to guide my pupils effectively, and I am also very approachable. Tutoring is not the same as teaching in a classroom, so I do not believe that a Tutor should be the same as a teacher.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching for over ten years now and have many years experience in industry as well. I currently Director of Learning for Business & Economics, and for eight years I taught at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden as well as teaching in at Caddington Village gaining me an experience of how students learn from 3-13 years old. I have tutored all levels and every exam board and the students I have taught have all gone on to university with some of them going on to Oxbridge Universities to study economics. I have references if you wish.

Teaching Experience:

I ran the A-Level business course and most of the GCSE course I also taught the majority of economics. In recent years our Economics results were in the top 2% of the UK for AQA. I trained at STAGS and Dame Alice Owens but predominately in Roundwood Park.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to have it fairly structured or pupil lead depending on what you prefer. I will provide the student with hundreds of additional files to continue and aid their learning. At A-Level I often find that the focus is on the writing style, therefore, I tend to focus on that whereas at GCSE I tend to go through the theory as well as key exam tips.

Personal Description:
I currently work on a one to one and small group basis with students of various ages in a Medical Pupil Referral unit where I am deputy head of centre. I find the one to one contact simulating and highly rewarding. I have taught for over 30 years and am an Advanced Skills Teacher. I have always wanted to teach and love what I do. I am patient, understanding, supportive and highly aware of the need to enable the student to achieve. I work through praise and careful guidance work to ensure the student gets the most from the one to one contact. I am educated to Masters degree level and have taught in both comprehensive schools and special needs units. I believe in a child centred approach to learning and always aim to work for and with the student.

Teaching Experience:

I was Head of performing arts in a school in Dorset for seventeen years. During that time I worked extensively with children of all ages. I have trained teachers and guided those new to the teaching profession successfully through the early stages of their careers in teaching. I have directed numerous school and examination productions which has given me an excellent knowledge of plays and productions for use with English and Drama teaching. I have taught adults GCSE Psychology with a very good success rate. I have enjoyed the opportunities teaching in both the comprehensive and adult sectors have given me and I hope to continue this type of tuition through a more individual and one to one basis.
I am currently working with students who are unable to access school due to medical conditions. This has enabled me to further develop and extend my approaches and strategies for one to one teaching and small group situations.
I have responsibility for the Arts within my Centre and this has enabled me to stimulate and support individual students in working creatively and positively.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is always to work with the needs of the student involved. I always listen to their requirements and tailor my teaching to what is needed. I value student interaction and would hope to use as much student based ideas and thoughts where this is possible. I have a positive attitude to teaching which always aims to enable the learner to succeed in a supportive environment.
I have a good sense of humour, I am patient , a very good listener and an individual who works in a proactive manner. I create and work with a range of resources which are specific to the topic and area being studied and also create resources tailor made for the student involved. I use praise and positive areas continually as I believe we all like to receive positive thoughts about ourselves and this is a means to promoting a good and solid foundation to study techniques.
Although I have been teaching for a long time I really enjoy the challenges,satisfaction and creativity teaching offers. For every student I work with I plan and create personal , individual lessons and approaches which are appropriate for each student. This approach has led to satisfied individuals at all levels.

Personal Description:

In UK I tutored for more than a year, students and adults.

Personal Description:
I am a professional educator with a wealth of experience in a wide variety of teaching environments. I've taught in schools (Primary and Secondary) around Hampshire covering almost all the curriculum, been a private tutor for a wealthy family in the Middle East, and helped local students improve their GCSE and A-Level grades.

I trained in Physics and have a Masters degree in Physics with Space Science and Technology from the university of Leicester. I now teach Physics and Mathematics at a variety of levels in Gosport and offer local tuition.

Presently, my circumstances make it difficult to offer tuition, and can only accommodate students coming to my home in Gosport.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2009 and took up a post in a 11-18 state comprehensive. Here I taught Science at Key Stage 3 and specialised in Physics at Key Stages 4 and 5. After I moved to the south coast I spent 6 months supplying at various schools in Hampshire. This opened my eyes to the full range of skills a good educator should have. I honestly feel my teaching skills were vastly enriched by teaching in a variety of environments in many different subjects.
From March 2011 I was hired by a prestigious tutoring agency based in Oxford to work for a wealthy client and their two sons in the Middle East. This consisted of after-school tutoring 5 evenings a week in a variety of subjects.
Now back in the UK I teach in an Engineering Academy run to train Network Rail Apprentices. I tutor in the evenings from 11+ entrance exam students to those sitting their A2 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I truly believe that every child is born a genius, with the ability to grasp everything that is put in front of them. From that point on, society, parents, and peers all put barriers in our minds. It is my goal to see that these barriers are destroyed. Learning is done by the student rather than teaching done by the teacher. A teacher can teach a dog to whistle, it doesn't meant the dog will learn.

A tutor is merely a resource. Just like a book, or an expensive laptop. Achieving the optimal results requires a holistic approach to education. I tend to work heavily with educational psychology theory and pinpoint the exact pieces of the puzzle far beneath the surface that allow the bigger picture to be seen. I teach my tutees to look at examinations in a way they may have never seen them before, allowing them to reduce the anxiety and be truly confident in themselves.

The content of subject matter often comes second to learning technique. How people learn differs between individuals. There can never be one set way to solve a problem so I offer various routes and pin point techniques that can be beneficial.

Personal Description:
Art and design has been the love of my life since early childhood. Being able to express oneself creatively and with imagination has always been my primary source of independence and happiness. Apart from that, i am also attentive to creative sparks and fires in the people around me, enjoying when the potential is given the chance to be fulfilled. Plus, i am thoughtful and hard working, with a light-hearted and empathic attitude towards people i work with. I am a bit of a connector, a bit of a maven, a bit of a geek and i always wear a sunscreen. I have studied Art and Design in Latvia and in London, have an Interior Design diploma and a degree in Product Design, strong drawing skills, sane knowledge of a range of arts materials, software skills and a spirit for safe experiments.

Teaching Experience:

Sustainable Opportunities Workshop 2011, in collaboration with British Council - designing the workshop and facilitating it.
Private arts tutor for life drawing and modeling, 2007-currently.
Learning Resources Assistant in University of Arts London, advising on materials and software (Adobe CS; Rhino; Solidworks for beginners) 2009-currently.
Arts tutor and group supervisor in Children Summer Camp, ages 6-16. 2007.

Tutoring Approach:

The best tutors in my life have been the strictest ones, with high demands and set standards. I have learned from them well and would aim for the same level of aspiration they have given me. But in addition, my strongest belief is that the best teacher is the one who understands the way his student works and learns and acts accordingly, being an inspirational teacher. Ages 6-99 can all benefit from expression through the different forms of art. First of all I would discuss the needs and desires of stakeholders and form a brief, which would include:
Desired outcomes
Program to reach them
Sourcing materials - what materials are needed
Timetable
Location

Then, we would be set for starting the learning and revealing the wonders of life and ourselves.

Personal Description:
I am a (young!) 50+ year old woman and my degree is in Mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' teaching experience of mathematics, mainly up to GCSE level but have also taught on a 1:1 basis as a home tutor for several years. I have taught adults and children from the age of 5. My main experience is at secondary level in the UK but I have also worked for a number of years in the USA and Australia. I have also worked for a number of years in the primary sector before qualifying as a teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach to students and am happy to work as an individual tutor and also to a small group. I have found home tutoring to be extremely rewarding and enjoy seeing the progress that students make. Once lessons begin, I am more than happy to be contacted by students via email as part of the agreement. I am happy to teach all ages from young children to adults who require maths tuition for work or personal development.

I enjoy the creative aspects of teaching and believe that learning a language should be a fun experience. I have designed several course books for learning Sudanese Arabic.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning Arabic can be reinforced through using visual aids and playing games.

I prefer to teach children and women.

Personal Description:
As an energetic, polite, and highly motivated individual I absolutely commit to anything that I participate in: from playing musical instruments, to touch rugby to teaching! I take my commitments very seriously and I am always dedicated to my work, throwing my considerable personality to inspire all those around me to do better.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a 4th Year student at the University of Stirling studying Secondary Education with English and will graduate with a BA Hons in August 2016. As a student on the course I have first hand experience of teaching to numbers between 12 and 30 pupils ranging from the ages of 10 up to 17, teaching all the Scottish National qualifications and the 'new Higher'. This has happened both within the university and out on placements within schools in my area; therefore I have an acute understanding of the difference between English studies and English teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very professional yet enthusiastic individual who takes an immense pride in his work: being pro-active and flexible to meet the individual requirements of pupils / clients is something that I take very seriously. Positivity is also a very important aspect that I bring to my teaching as I believe that a positive attitude fosters both positive results and a positive work ethic for my pupils.

View Becky's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am enthusiastic, supportive and encouraging teacher. I have a broad and wide love of literature but a special love for Shakespeare and Literature of the Romantic period, especially Mary Shelley and her contemporaries. I am also an enormous fan of modern American
and realist drama and Greek tragedy. I run a theatre company, study a masters and love singing, performing and writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for seven years - working as a private tutor for several bespoke companies in London, working abroad in Greece and Spain and in the UK at Stamford and Oakham Schools.

I am endlessly fascinated with the way in which Literature acts as a gateway to understanding life and, in turn, the superb ability of writers to capture and reflect the world they live in through written expression. Of equal importance to me, is the connection of Literature to all other subjects and I believe in introducing students of all ages to different texts and genres; I relish discussion of a single word, alongside considering a text in light of its historical context. I believe I am an energetic and enthusiastic teacher and I take enormous pleasure in helping students to give of their very best. Whilst I am excited by intellectual curiosity and rigorous debate, I love working with less able students and helping them to realise their own potential. A few of my students with severe dyslexia have achieved very highly in their IGCSE and AS examinations, in addition to the most able students gaining their predicted grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in finding opportunities for the students to enjoy the texts they study, in addition to coaching them rigorously in the necessary set of analytical skills they need to write top notch essays or descriptive/narrative pieces. I enjoy assisting students at all stages of their education and have experience in teaching all key stages. In addition to preparing students thoroughly for public examinations, I have been able to help pupils explore a variety of texts and genres and discover the joy of great writing

I enjoy helping students contemplating Higher Education - having helped students look at different courses, selecting modules and advising them on their personal statements; it has been rewarding to try and help students play to their individual strengths. I have delivered several specialist seminars for University applicants and assisted in delivering intensive mock interviews, both at Stamford and Oundle School, assisted with interviews and entrance examination preparation.

Personal Description:
I am an Education Policy Masters Graduate, Physics graduate and qualified teacher with approximately 3 years of experience in state grammar, comprehensive, and independent schools and over 6 months and counting of experience as a supply teacher in primary and secondary schools. Furthermore, I have over 2 years` experience of being a Maths & Physics specialist with a proven ability to teach a range of ages and abilities. I have a strong desire to make a real difference to students` lives to help them maximise their potential and help give students the stepping stone to their future aspirations. I feel I have a lot of skills (from both the academic and professional side) and knowledge to offer students, and get a great pleasure and real excitement from helping students in anyway I can in their studies to achieve their maximum potential. Lastly, being a personable, friendly and approachable character, and having a smile on my face always helps greatly with the progress of my students.

Teaching Experience:

I am an Education Policy Masters Graduate, Physics graduate and qualified teacher with approximately 3 years of experience in state grammar, comprehensive, and independent schools and over 6 months and counting of experience as a supply teacher in primary and secondary schools. Furthermore, I have over 2 years` experience of being a Maths & Physics specialist with a proven ability to teach a range of ages and abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach revolves around giving students the most bespoke package possible, to allow them to maximise their potential. My approach is multifaceted and contains the following:
1. Initially assessing students for their key needs in the subject, and then establishing realistic, moveable targets and milestones with the students, so that the student can have clear goals in mind.
2. Explaining in detail, systematically, the principles to students, building on what he/she already knows, using real-world examples and applications to the students' own interests, while using staggered questioning and individual practice time to encourage students to think for themselves.
3. Producing hand-written/typed collaborative notes for students to take away from at the end of the lesson.
4. Lessons will be fully flexible and organic to take into account students' ever-changing needs in a subject and students can bring questions in from school that will be answered in as much detail as necessary etc.
5. Tackling misconceptions/personal barriers to learning head-on and giving students the confidence and freedom and opportunity to ask questions all the time, to deepen their understanding, no matter how simple the question may be. This would be in an environment with no external pressures, with myself dedicating as much time as necessary to allow the concept to be consolidated securely, and the student knowing they will get a firm answer.
6. Using problem-solving exercises and practice exam papers to develop core skills that will lay foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject, while also being able to transfer those skills in a multitude of different circumstances.
7. Issuing homework regularly to check the students' understanding and technique and perfect and refine it.
Being a qualified teacher, I value greatly and take a huge amount of pride from maximising the potential of students through individualised learning, so that they can reach their goals.
