Personal Description:
Hi, everyone,The academic year is now a term old and things are ticking along nicely for almost all my students of 2016-17. Sadly two have had to drop out of school/college studies because of personal issues which is sad, when the time is right, these two very bright individuals will come back to studying, I'm sure.

I am more busy than ever this year but do have perhaps one or two spaces for students keen to just improve or to transform themselves and their fortunes. However bad things seem, I can show you how make the best of your talents.

TWO EXAM PAPER NOTICES

A couple of examination paper notices.

1. I am now OCR trained for the new AS level source/essay paper. Obviously this has given me a clear insight into how it's marked and how students need to approach it to be successful.
2. Secondly, the ED Excel Y13 A2 sources & essay paper (three secondary sources): I worked with four students on this last year and achieved spectacular results (these pupils can be contacted; some won't be able to put referees up here because I found all 4 of them via word of mouth and the UK's other major tutoring site). I'm very happy to report that I worked hard and thought hard on refining my advice on the paper and it has clearly paid off handsomely. Do contact me for details; I can pass these on to you prior to your making a decision on whether to engage me (or not as the case may be). Naturally anyone re-taking the A2 paper in 2017 can benefit from this. The new EdExcel History exam has a similar paper so this year's cohort of Y13 students should be able to benefit too.

Note. Because I'm away for the next 3 weeks carrying out research in London and Reading for my PhD I will not be able to begin lessons this year until the last week of September.

Plus:

Important policy change! If your young one or you, the student, is/are one who is not prepared to be coached and trained as our Olympic athletes are - and by this I mean that the performer puts themselves in the hands of the coach and doesn't try to tell them how to do the job - then please do not get in touch: simply pass on to another tutor somewhere else on this site.

And now, The Pitch!

So, my name is Craig, a very dedicated one-to-one tutor of History, Politics and English. I offer an exceptionally high level of expertise as a history, politics (and English) teacher, teacher of essay writing, exam writing and exam taking. This is based on well over two decades of experience in schools and in homes. Though I have been teaching a long time, I am continually striving to improve the quality of my work, constantly analyzing the effect of my advice on performance and trying to perfect the art and craft of the job.

When not tutoring, most of my time is spent working (hard!) as a student too! I am just about to begin the third year of my PhD, supervised by Professor Tony Collins of De Montfort University, Leicester, undertaking research in 20th century British history. (Rugby fans might like to note at this point that Tony is the number one rugby historian - of all codes - in the world. All his books are very well worth reading.)


I am exceptionally well qualified. I have an MA (2011) in History and am now two years into my doctoral studies. I have written fiction and non-fiction. I have had experience in being an A level marker with an exam board. I have had long experience in teaching and preparing whole History & Govnt. & Politics year groups for A level, producing outstanding results.

I take on all types of students. Some need a lot of training, some need to be dragged away from a collision-course with failure, some need finessing, some need waking up, some need inspiring, some need a boost in confidence; some need more intellectual stimulation; all can and do improve their writing.

My chief strengths are: 1. I know how to teach students to write. 2. I know how to prepare them for exams. 3. My methods are clear, simple and work beautifully. 4. I care very much about the progression of my students. 5. I treat my work with them with the utmost seriousness. 6. But I'm a human being with a sense of humour! 7. I am very, very experienced. 8. As a parent of three children who have gone through the school and university experience, I understand what both the student and the parent is going through.

I am very happy to work with students online. I have found it to work extremely well.

More on my current research project...
I am currently working on doctoral research into the BBC, sport and social class, 1922-64, with Tony Collins at De Montfort University, Leicester. He is the director of DMU's International Centre for Sports History & Culture, a department of world renown, and the leading British powerhouse of sports history. I am very proud to be working with Tony and within the department. Undergrad students should note that I am working under one of the world's best historians, a 3-time winner of the prestigious Aberdare Prize for Sports Books.

Becoming a student again, beginning with the masters degree course at De Montfort University in 2010 has really helped my teaching. As well as keeping on top of developments in academic history. I am much better read! I know more! It has also taken me right back in touch with what it feels like to be a student and all that follows from that. It has also enabled me to extend my tutoring potential to undergraduates and masters students.

I'm happily married with 3 children fully grown (it's only their father who's lagging behind).

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 24 years in secondary schools in Bromley, Kent and Derbyshire where I now live. History was my specialism but I was head of Politics for a number of years in the last part of my school career. I also taught Geography, Economics, English and R.E.

Since beginning to tutor students, I have taught history, Government & Politics and English (including basic literacy skills to a young person with dyslexia). Courses taught have mostly been those at GCSE and A level.

I have taught a wide range of topics within French, German, Russian and British history. The list includes the usual suspects: causes of World Wars 1 and 2, Hitler and the Third Reich, the French Revolution (and its causes) and Napoleon; also Tsarist Russia, the Russian revolution and Stalin as well as the European Reformation, France in the 16th century, Louis XIV and aspects of Irish and Chinese history and 19th century France, plus 20th century USA. politics (Boom and Bust, New Deal and Post-War Boom, and also the Witchcraft Persecution in Europe (1550-1680).

In terms of British history I am very much up to speed with all aspects of its 20th century political history (high politics, parties, electoral history, social history & economic history, right through to the 21st century, in fact); I have also taught most aspects of 19th history, social, economic and political. For the last decade and a half of my school-teaching career I taught the A level course in 16th and 17th century - The Tudors, James I, Charles I, Causes of the English Civil War, Charles II, James II & the Glorious Revolution, the reigns of William & Mary & Queen Anne.

I have recently added 19th century British politics (Reform Bill through Peel, Palmerston, Disraeli and Gladstone to Salisbury) and Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe to my "roster" of topics.

Since becoming a PhD student my expertise level in terms of content knowledge has leaped forward in 20th century British history. However...

...it isn't the historical content of the course that matters so much: technique is the key; know-how; how to write; how to take an exam; how to prepare for the whole exam period; how to approach the whole thing mentally, psychologically; how to be the best you can be; how to be successful - end of story!

I have worked with students on exam preparation and revision, coursework planning and execution and essay writing techniques. It is here that the battle to improve and to reach a fulfillment of potential, often with the reward of high grades, is usually won.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't tinker around the margins of issues. I give students something all those who come for help require: a method to use to dispose of the problems posed by the issue of writing that dreaded thing: the essay! Not a tinkering round the edges of the thing, a tip here, a bit of advice there, but a comprehensive yet simple and absolutely clear set of actions and principles through which the student can fulfill their potential: show the examiner what they know and understand of the topic.

Following on from the above, my approach to tutoring begins and ends with the drive to be successful. If I did not unfailingly improve students, help them to achieve the grades they want and need I would not be writing this.

In between comes what we might describe as philosophy and methods. It's hard to write about methods without immediately mentioning what I suppose might be my strongest "offer" (I don't much like that word but there, I've used it). As a schoolteacher I developed a unique but simple method of essay planning and writing that achieved stunning results. So successful has it been over 20 years that I am astonished that no one else seems to have found it. But in my experience up to February 2013 no teacher has. Essay writing is still something that many, many students find difficult and confusing. It really does not need to be this way.

Obviously content issues are hugely important and here I rely on my communication skills which have yet to let me down! These, naturally, go hand in hand with a knowledge of British and European history across a variety of years which has grown over recent years particularly through my MA studies, my PhD research and through working with students on a range of historical periods, topics and people. I find myself to be adaptable to different types of students. I am able to adapt my language and my technique to fit the situation. I am also somewhat stubborn in that I never give up on solving a problem. If we have to go over time, so be it!

Finally, some more of my personal philosophies of teaching. I believe that students generally do not achieve their potential. With each student I aim to take them to standards (and grades) that they did not think were possible. Without exception I push, push and push until we run out of time as we inevitably do. I also do not believe in lost causes. Much can be achieved in a very short space of time. I have seen this happen over and over again.

There is much more to be said but that, I hope, will do for now.

Craig

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of Oxford University in Engineering and Computing Science. I am fluent in French (as well as English and Polish). From an early age, I had a passion for maths and physics and at school, I imagined how I would envisage teaching those subjects differently. I would often explain things in an alternative way to my friends to help their understanding.
Please note that I also teach engineering topics at university level, usually up to first or second year, depending on the topics.

Teaching Experience:

I have a variety of tutoring experience at both university and high school level (AS and A level). I like to begin teaching with a session to become acquainted with the tutee and their needs.

At Oxford, I studied under the tutorial system which usually meant one professor to one or two students and this taught me to express myself clearly. I often studied one-to-one with a coursemate where learning was achieved through exchanging knowledge by teaching each other.

Tutoring Approach:

I know that every person learns differently and I will be looking to tailor my tutoring style to every student's particular needs. For maths, engineering and physics, I will aim to first establish a thorough understanding of the basics concepts, which is fundamental to making progress in scientific subjects; this will be followed by lots of practice. For French, the key is to be comfortable with the language and I will aim to conduct lessons entirely in French as soon as possible.

Personal Description:
Hello there, this is Clair here, I`m 24 and am currently undertaking a chemical research PHD in the field of materials chemistry at UCL. I graduated from my undergraduate Chemistry degree at UCL and prior to this I lived in Portsmouth having moved there from Malaysia when I was 13. This coming September I am in line to be secretary of the Chemical and Physical Society, UCL's oldest society.

Aside from Chemistry I am also like running, taking photographs, going to see art, films, music and learning more about the world around me e.g. economics, politics and sociology.

Teaching Experience:

In recent years I have been in junior schools working with children during their science practicals. I have also had regular work tutoring one to one and small groups of KS3-GCSE students and have also been called in to help particular A-level/BTEC science classes. At university I mentor to undergraduate students.

Tutoring Approach:

During our tutoring session we'll do the normal thing of going through past papers but also work hard at actual understanding of the concepts. With me you will be able to understand and enjoy complex scientific and mathematical ideas and consequently get the grades you want and deserve. Hopefully we can work together to make this happen.

Personal Description:
My name is George, I am twenty-three years old and am currently working as an auditor and trainee Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales at Deloitte LLP.

I studied French and Spanish at the Russell Group University of Southampton, where I achieved a 2:1 grade (missing a First-Class by 1%) when I graduated in June 2015. During my time at university I spent a year abroad in Alicante, Spain where I studied at the local university and became a fluent Spanish speaker. I have maintained that level of Spanish to date by working on Spanish-speaking clients operating in Latin America as part of my job.

My French ability has declined since university due to lack of practice, though I am still capable of helping with assignments up to A-level standard with tutees.

I have recently completed the Professional Level of examinations with the ICAEW, meaning I am "part-qualified" and have completed 12 out of the 15 exams necessary to qualify. I passed all units comfortably on the first attempt despite conflicting pressures from work and short time-frames allotted to me to study. I have both the exam credentials mentioned here and 18 months (current) experience working as an auditor, which allow me to tutor accounting to a high level.

I enjoy relaxing with my friends, eating out, exploring London (my family is from Manchester area), many kinds of music, videogaming and following the world of rowing. I am generally a relaxed kind of guy to be around, easy to get on with, and pride myself in my ability to "take things easy" and not get stressed.

Teaching Experience:

I have no official previous teaching experience as such, however when I understand something well I have no difficulty explaining it to others in a clear manner.

As a second-year graduate at work I am often tasked with explaining accounting concepts and testing approaches to the first-years, which I have been doing with success for six months.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and non-pressuried style of teaching, and will be able to help the student feel at ease. I do not have access to any teaching material unavailable to the public online, so would need the student to have papers/worksheets/textbooks etc from school for us to work on/go through together, or any problems they may be encountering in their minds for us to resolve.

I would not call myself an academic, but my methods have enabled me to reach a good degree-level standard with my languages and to complete my professional accountancy exams relatively comfortably, and I would be more than happy to help others find a way to overcome any issues they may have with their studies.

Personal Description:
Ciao, I'm a native Italian speaker graduated with honors in Linguistics (February 2013) and in Anthropology (2007). During University, I worked and travelled around Europe, Centre and South America further developing my language skills (Spanish, Portuguese and American native languages). I currently live in London to improve my English and enter a post-graduation course in Linguistics.
I'm passionate about other cultures and the interaction between people from different cultural backgrounds. I love learning other languages, travelling, reading books and drawing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 4 years and worked as an Italian teacher for foreigners, all levels and all types of courses (long and short course, one-to-one lessons, children, adults).

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to understand the students' needs and adjust the working materials to the Second Language level, the personality, the age and the mother tongue of each student. Also, discussing everyday life topics and subjects like culture, cinema, arts, sports and gastronomy are a pivotal part of my teaching approach.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced language teacher and examiner. A native French speaker, I tutor students of all ages, from primary to undergraduates.

Teaching Experience:

Since my PGCE, I have taught languages in secondary schools for 13 years; French to A level and Spanish to GCSE.

I am an examiner for one of the country's leading examination boards and mark examination papers. In the summer I conduct speaking tests in schools.

I have taught French in primary schools and after-school clubs and tutor people wanting to learn languages for pleasure or to help them communicate more effectively on holiday.

I also work with language undergraduates and support students wishing to achieve or improve their grade at the examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient and tailor my lessons to individual needs. My aim is to build confidence in speaking and using languages by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practise or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. I aim to make all my lessons fun and enjoyable, though with a clear focus on learning outcomes.

Personal Description:
I am a secondary school teacher of French & Spanish, currently working and living in London. I am MFL Deputy Coordinator in my current school and am constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to teach languages to young people in an engaging manner. It's quite the challenge!

I am originally from Northern Ireland but live in SW London with my partner. Outside of school, I am a keen football fan, enjoy staying fit through various activities and love listening to any music made between 1965 and 1975!

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English in a Spanish secondary school during my Erasmus year and currently work as an MFL Deputy Coordinator at an 'outstanding' secondary school on the outskirts of west London.

Tutoring Approach:

I will take the same approach to tutoring as I do to my teaching - enthusiastic and well planned lessons that engage the student in the language. Explaining what is required for the exam is far easier when there are high levels of engagement.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable, History & Politics teacher, currently teaching in Bromley, Kent. I am very passionate about education and I find great satisfaction in helping young people achieve.

I studied History & American Studies at the University of Nottingham and the University of Toronto, achieving a 2:1. I also have a PGCE at Masters level. I also have A2 Levels in English Literature, History and P.E.

Due to my experience in teaching for a couple of years at a top independent school, l I am happy to help with preparing for the 11+ and entrance examinations, and interview technique.

Teaching Experience:

I spent my first year of teaching working at a top independent boys' school in Surrey, teaching History. I then completed my PGCE, working at two different schools in the Bromley area. I am now in my second year of teaching at Charles Darwin School in Biggin Hill, where I teach History up to A2, Government and Politics up to AS, and Religious Studies up to GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring tutoring to each individual's learning style to get the best out of our time together. I do this whilst also trying to create an enjoyable working environment to encourage maximum learning potential. This is especially important with younger students; I want them to enjoy our sessions so that they look forward to them and get the most out of them.
I have a huge variety of tried and tested resources that I have created and used in the various schools I have worked in. I always adapt these to the needs of the individual learner so they can be of maximum benefit.
I am also happy to set work to be done outside of the sessions, which can then be worked on together in future meetings

Hello there. I am an experienced Latin tutor and am currently completing my PhD in Classics at the University of Edinburgh (2013-2017). I have an honours degree from University College Dublin (2008-2012) and a Masters in Classics from Trinity College Dublin (2012-2013).

I truly enjoy tutoring and understand that people come to learn Latin for many reasons. My main aim is to support my students throughout their learning and to help them achieve their own unique goals.

I am also happy to offer Ancient Greek and Old Norse.

Teaching Experience:

I have much experience teaching Latin. I taught Latin to two undergraduate classes at the University of Edinburgh in 2015-2016. This course covered all of the grammar in Wheelock's Latin as well as unadapted Ovid. I received excellent feedback from my students and was nominated for a student teaching award for my work.

I also have much experience teaching younger students and children. I have taught short Latin courses at various primary schools around the country and I was heavily involved in the founding of the Literacy through Latin programme here in Edinburgh, which aims to introduce Latin to state primary schools. As part of this, I spent a year teaching a class of 10 year olds at Liberton Primary School and this experience has provided me with the skills to teach and enthuse younger students.

I believe that an interest in Latin can be sparked at any age and have had great experiences with casual learners. Most recently, I worked with a tutee in her 50s who had no previous experience of Latin.

I have also received formal tutor training at the University of Edinburgh between 2014-2016.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin truly is the key to languages and I know from my own experience that the skills and tools acquired through Latin make learning other languages a much easier process.

I believe that translation is the best way to learn a language and therefore, I always tailor work to each individual student and adapt my teaching to their specific needs.

I know that language learning can make people very anxious and so I always approach my tutoring with the utmost patience and aim to provide care and support throughout the journey.

To put it simply, I love languages and I love Latin and I aim to impart this enthusiasm to all of my tutees.

Personal Description:
I am a First Class Honours LL.B. graduate. I recently completed my LL.M. in Law at King's College London. I also received The Thomson Reuters Law Prize for Best Undergraduate Law Dissertation and have received many firsts in my law examinations and essays.

I strive to achieve the best possible results I can.

All students have the potential to be the best. It is the teacher who must hone this and let the student shine. Tutoring can make a great difference in a student's grade if it is done correctly. I believe that students need practice, confidence and time to be the best they can.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously had experience being a teaching assistant in English, Maths, History and Biology at a Primary School to Year 1 and 2 students. I held this position for 2 years.

If students in a class of 30 did not understand what a teacher had taught them, I would sit down individually with these students and ensure that they understood what was being taught before giving them a set of tasks to test their knowledge.

I have also proofread and helped students from GCSE level to postgraduate level to understand how they can achieve better grades in coursework components. This is especially true for English and History GCSE to A-Level students and undergraduate Law students.

I can also help Law students use the OSCOLA referencing system and make sure they have used it correctly throughout their work.

This would especially be helpful to students who do not use English as their first language.

I have also been tutored previously during my A Levels and I understand the skills and needs that a good tutor needs in order for a student to achieve their best potential.

I am very happy to help tutees improve their coursework and essays.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe it is imperative that students will come away with new knowledge each tuition session. Due to this, I am always happy to change the structure of my teaching for the benefit of the pupil. I will be prepared for all lessons and will provide homework which will gauge the student's performance.

I will identify any weak areas a student may have and focus on improving these areas. Exam and coursework technique will also be improved along with providing students with good revision habits and tips.

I will seek feedback from students so that I can keep improving my methods and so that they can ultimately benefit academically from this.
