Personal Description:
Experienced language tutor with excellent proficiency (oral/ written) in 3 languages.

I am an experienced tutor in teaching French (up to GCSE and IGCSE, A'Level and International Baccalaureate and beyond). I also teach German and Italian up to GCSE/IGCSE level.

I also teach conversation and practical French for adults looking to use the language for holidays/buying/maintaining properties in France as well as business French or just for general use

Have valid CRB disclosure

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for the last 10 years at all levels and have consistantly produced good results in my students at A' Level/IB as well as GCSE/IGCSE.

I am fully conversant with all Exam Boards and GCSE/IGCSE/A'LEVEL/IB etc. syllabuses

I have also taught French to adults at all levels for example who have just wanted to be able to converse comfortably while on holiday, also to those who want to learn from scratch as well as those who are already at a reasonable level and want to improve their oral and writing skills for business or pleasure

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is firstly to assess closely where the gaps in my pupil's knowledge are and then build on closing them through grammar and vocabulary. I therefore give my students the building blocks to construct their own sentences in writing and speech.

I will work with them sometimes using their own text books but also I provide my own material to make the lessons more interesting. I will use games/quizzes as well as focussing on past papers and oral exams to help them gain confidence in the language.

I engage well with all my pupils and they always enjoy their lessons with me so that their time with me does not feel like just another extension of school

My conversation lessons with adults are always fast-paced and fun and my pupils widen their vocabulary and gain confidence in the new language very quickly

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 qualified Geography teacher and I am employed at a high achieving secondary school where I teach Geography at Key Stage 3, GCSE and AS/A2 level. I have been teaching Geography for 4 years after achieving my degree in Geography and PGCE from Durham University. I have also been tutoring for 4 years for students at GCSE and A-level and I am familiar with the syllabus of all mainstream exam boards. I have a wealth of revision material which can be shared with students in preparation for the summer exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and tutoring Geography for 4 years after achieving my Geography degree and PGCE from Durham University. I have a wealth of Geography resources for use in tuition including past papers, worksheets, Powerpoint presentations and activities. I have experience teaching and tutoring students with target grades ranging from A* to E.

I have specific expertise in the following exam boards:

GCSE Geography:
AQA A
AQA B
Edexcel A

AS Geography:

A2 Geography:
AQA (Plate Tectonics and Associated Hazards, Ecosystems, Challenge and Change)

Tutoring Approach:

I have a wealth of resources for use with students of all abilities. I focus on ensuring that students understand the course content whilst also developing exam technique. I teach content through visual and audio resources, worksheets and interactive activities. Students also work through practice papers and complete exam questions. I also improve exam technique by ensuring students understand how their work will be assessed, and by providing useful revision tips.

Personal Description:
My name is Lauren, I am 18 years old, and I am currently a student at Coventry University studying Spanish BA Single Honours, with TEFL (Teaching English as a foreign language). I am originally from Dorset, where I studied Spanish at GCSE and A Level, acquiring an A* at GCSE and a B at A Level. I believe I am a hard working individual with every intention on making sure I achieve what I set out to do. I enjoy helping others, working, and socialising with my friends, and I get on really well with new people.

Teaching Experience:

In the past I have helped out with some younger classes at my secondary school when they needed some assistance in some of the classes. Also, as my sister is 5 years younger than me, I have always been the one helping her with homework, or helping if there is something she does not understand. This means that I have some experience working with people who are in the age group I intend to teach.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a structured hour of work where the pupil is thoroughly engaged throughout the session. I think that there is a lot of importance in learning 'discovery' which is where the pupil is not spoon-fed information, but rather encouraged to try and work out patterns in the language e.g. grammar. Obviously if the pupil gets stuck I will help them. I also think grammar is an important part of learning Spanish language due to all of the verb conjugations and gender agreements etc. Homework is also important as doing a little each day is definitely one of the best ways to learn.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student at UCL, currently studying towards a doctorate in Mathematics. I have a BSc Financial Mathematics (2:1) from University of Surrey and a MSc Mathematics (distinction) from University of Sussex.

Teaching Experience:

I undertook tutoring roles at University of Sussex and I am currently tutoring a degree student in London. In addition to this I used to run a homework club at my secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that understanding is key. I will use visual representation and justification as much as possible to provide a clear understanding of why and how we use techniques. I will tailor my tutoring to the specific needs of my tutee, and my time will include a FREE consultation to see where the student is in their studies and attempt to highlight any areas where they may feel less comfortable. I hope to inspire my tutees to see maths as a useful tool as apposed to a chore.

Personal Description:
I am a recent UCL maths Msci graduate and I know how to get incredibly high marks on exams. My average mark on my A level maths/further maths was 92%. In a couple of the more interesting modules (FP1, C4), I got 100%. I continued this academic excellence into my undergraduate, my average was 82%, I did the hardest analysis / algebra courses.
Here is what one of my current students says about me:
"Joe has consistently proven to have great knowledge and understanding in all areas of mathematics. So far, my degree has required me to have a strong grasp of analysis, algebra, statistics and mathematical methods, all of which he has taught me in great detail. His enthusiasm for the subject has made our lessons exciting and extremely rewarding, often leaving me mulling over interesting mathematical problems that he has left for me to think about for homework. When I started with Joe, I had just failed my first year at UCL and thanks to his help, I achieved a 2:1 in the retake exams and am on the path to obtaining a first in my subsequent years. Joe has taught me methods that have enabled me to solve complex mathematical problems independently. I have never had a tutor with such a breath of knowledge, empathetic approach and natural ebullience as Joe. I highly recommend him to all students. " Hannah Michaels, 25, UCL mathematics undergraduate.

Tutoring is not a side project for me. It is a vocation I genuinely want to pursue to the fullest extent.
When I look at my achievements, I don't quite believe them: I grew up on a deprived council estate in Wolverhampton, life could have been so different. This is why I have applied for a PGCE; so that I may uplift others.
I am unique in that for a period of my adolescence (GCSE), I was home schooled. I know very well the challenges that home-schooled people face.
I was known as the "Ideas Man" in the maths common room at UCL: two years ago I gave an hour long talk at UCL on quaternion analysis for the The Mathematics Colloquium. I also helped a number of students with their own Colloquium talks. I am currently preparing a series of talks on relativistic fluid mechanics.
In my spare time I answer people's questions on math.stackexchange (my reputation score is currently 223). I also write poetry related to my mathematical interests. Aside from maths. I'm a huge computer games enthusiast (typical maths nerd!) and attend philosophy debates.

My timetable is nearly full (12/16 hours of tuition weekly).
I am away from London: 23rd of December until 2nd of January.
Location is at discretion of the client.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring part time while I was studying in February, and I have been a full time tutor since graduation in August.
My maths and physics teachers put me in charge of mentoring AS students during my A levels. (I have three letters from my teachers confirming this, available on request.) Here are quotes from two:

"First rate physicist and mathematician... The tuition and help he has given has been really useful to those to who have received it... I would recommend him without reservation to any other student..." -Mr Ian Cunliffe FE Physics teacher, 2010; Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath campus.
"Joe has read widely around the subject... I can fully recommend Joe for his mathematical expertise as well as his ability to put across his explanations" -Dr A G Williamson FE maths teacher, 2010; Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath campus.
I mentored undergraduates in the maths department at UCL while I was studying; giving lectures on the provided whiteboards.
Five years of maths mentoring experience (10 hours / week) (Including university and college.)
Experience with home schooled students.
Experience with dyslexic students.

I have detailed knowledge of the demands of each specification for Maths and Further Maths A Level (AQA, OCR and Edecxel). I can also teach Maths IB and pre-U.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths lessons can be very daunting, with the teacher often moving on from key methods to difficult questions too quickly. One-to-one tuition is great because I can make sure a student really understands the fundamentals behind concepts, before tackling specific questions.
Rather than teach superficial 'tricks' to get answers, which often backfire in exams, I always give students a genuine grounding in a way of thinking about problems. It's also great that my students can ask the questions they've always wondered about in class, but been too self-conscious to ask.
I am experienced in providing custom-made handouts that cater to the individual needs of my students. The handouts usually cover things that cannot be reasonably tutored during lessons, and novel and instructive ways of solving problems.

Personal Description:
Qualified, professional English teacher - 25 years experience at all levels and abilities.

I have a personal, friendly approach, which is individualised to learners` needs, following initial/informal assessment and discussion with parents or with learners themselves.

We can follow a negotiated programme of study or I can assist with planning and preparation for classwork assignments, revision and study for exams.

Thank you for reading my profile - I look forward to working with you.

Teaching Experience:

25 years as a teacher of English in the National Curriculum - up to A level and English as an Additional Language. I teach to all abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique and logical thought.

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.

Subjects
  • Entrance Exams
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (45 p.h.)
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Adult/Casual learner (60 p.h.)

  • English
