Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher with Cambridge MA, PGCE & DELTA, with 30 years' experience of teaching in a variety of contexts including general secondary school English and Drama, GCSE, A Level, IB, and tuition at university and postgraduate level, including assistance with theses and similar.
I have considerable experience of TEFL/TOEFL and a successful record in teaching Cambridge FCE, CPE, etc as well as Business English classes for non-native professionals.
I recently returned to the UK from Spain for family reasons and I am new to the York area. I'm taking time out for a while to write that elusive million-seller or sitcom! Meanwhile I am a member of SfEP and work part time as a professional proofreader and copy editor. I am very happy to help groups or individuals with their academic needs.

Teaching Experience:

15 years in all key stages of secondary school education in England.
5 years Adult Education, TEFL and private tuition in the UK.
10 years teaching a British curriculum in an international secondary school in Spain at all key stages incl. GCSE, A Level and IB.
Group and individual EFL classes for children and adults, including Business English for professionals and TOEFL in an American-affiliated college.
I have an excellent record of success in preparing students for English and Drama exams - GCSE, A Level, International Baccalaureat and beyond - as well as for Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency in English.
Amongst other notables, I was employed as personal tutor to the actress Rebecca Hall as a child and also to one of Tony Blair's sons!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a supportive approach and a friendly relationship, but without forgetting it's work: you're paying me because I can improve your (or your children's) future prospects.

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Personal Description:
I am a published academic author with thirteen years' experience of teaching university students at different levels, including those undertaking foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I also have extensive experience of teaching via distance learning (by both telephone and online). I have a BA hons in Social Policy and Administration, an MA in Social Research and a PhD in Social Policy. I have significant experience of conducting academic research, writing and editing publications and proof-reading a wide variety of different sources.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a lecturer, online tutor and researcher, teaching, supporting, and marking the work of undergraduates and postgraduates. I have taught in - and developed teaching materials for - a variety of subjects within the fields of sociology and social policy. These have included general sociology and social policy modules, current debates in welfare, crime, housing, disability and study skills modules. I have also taught MA Disability Studies for eight years and I have supervised both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations in various subjects. I have been a private tutor for four years, and have successfully supported students in developing their assignments and dissertations for Sociology, Business Studies, Education and Social Policy degrees, as well as students working towards MAs and PhDs in various fields.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is supportive, friendly, practical and student-centred. I have taught in a variety of styles and formats to suit the varying needs of students from different backgrounds, cultures and with different access requirements. I therefore understand the need to be flexible, to tailor teaching styles and methods to each student and to allow students to identify the most appropriate approaches to learning for them. I have found that this approach to learning has not only helped my previous students to build confidence in their skills and knowledge, but it has also led to greater success in their academic achievements.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated with a First Class in BSc Mathematics and am currently training to be a Maths teacher, focusing on KS4 and KS5.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently training to be a Secondary Mathematics Teacher. I have experience giving KS3, KS4 and first year undergraduate Maths tuition. I have worked as a Mathematics Outreach Ambassador, working with primary and secondary school students, and running Mathematics workshops and masterclasses.
I also give instrumental and vocal tuition to students of a variety of ages and abilities. I hold an enhanced DBS (new version of enhanced CRB).

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and patient. I have a flexible approach to tutoring, adapting to suit the students way of learning and best address their weaker areas. In my first few lessons I aim to give students tasks that they can understand and complete within the lesson, building their confidence in their abilities. This lays the foundations to progress on to more difficult topics, and develop the students own ability and skills set, so they can begin to tackle new, unfamiliar areas of the topic themselves.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and friendly individual with a passion for learning. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University and subsequently completed an MSc in the History and Philosophy of Science at the London School of Economics. I am fascinated by the natural world and by scientific enquiry. When I'm not teaching or learning I enjoy foreign cinema, playing tennis, and strumming the guitar.

Teaching Experience:

After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a full-time teacher at d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form College, Oxford. During this four-year period, I taught A-level Philosophy, Sociology and Religious Studies (all AQA examining board). More recently, I have worked as a teaching assistant at Canterbury High School, focussing on struggling students and helping them achieve their potential. Concurrently, I have also worked as a private tutor teaching GCSE Maths, Chemistry and Physics as well as 11+ Maths preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

Once I understand exactly what a tutee hopes to achieve (e.g. A* Maths GCSE, or simply understanding algebra) I have three main priorities as a tutor:

i) to identify a students strengths and weaknesses through short tests

ii) to provide a course of study and assessment that will focus on the weaknesses and monitor progress

iii) to give the student belief in themselves and their abilities and to instill a love of learning!

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a person that gets along with everyone and am quite easy going. I am friendly and bubbly and I like to make teaching fun and interesting for everyone.
I have a BSc in Marine Biology and a Masters' degree also in Marine Biology.
I love teaching and helping people who need some extra input or guidance with their studies, this is something I do naturally.
I currently work as a Science support assistant at Dartmouth Academy and help students all through secondary from year 7 to 11.
My previous profession was Marine Biology, I studied in Portugal, Spain and Wales. I lived in Portugal for 10 years and speak, read and write Portuguese fluently. I am also half Spanish and lived in the Canary islands for 6 months.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is quite varied. I first started tutoring as a Secondary (yrs10,11 and 12) English tutor in Portugal. My first job after completing my BSc degree was to be the principal marine biologist at a whaling museum where I gave lectures to children (ages 6 to 16) about the ocean and marine wildlife. I then decided to take my Masters' degree and moved to Wales. After that, I decided to become a teacher and get teaching experience in a school. I have been working at Dartmouth Academy from September 2016 to present and I support students and help the science teachers with lesson planning and small recap exercises. Additionally, I have substituted some science lessons and am now working towards becoming a Science teacher.
So far, I am enjoying the experience very much and am also getting very positive feedback from all my students. I have been told that I am nice and that I explain things very well.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to be a support to the tutee. I am quite flexible and can arrange to meet with you where most convenient, being your house or a library or other public space.
I work together with the tutee and create a tutoring plan. I will sit down with you in our first session and make a 3 to 4 session plan to got though the subject chosen for tutoring. We will decided which sections of your work you are most and least confident with and work through them in a logical order. I will ask you to bring all your learning materials and will look through what you have already covered and what you still need to cover. I will then ask you which areas you would mostly like to address and start from then.
After covering the work I will give you some past paper questions to do and we can then see how you get on and what else may need to be worked on.
Your tutor sessions with me are for your benefit and so I will listen to you requests and needs and work with you to achieve the highest level of learning to your abilities initially and then push you a little to see how well you can perform.

Personal Description:
My name is Patricia and I am a Brazilian native living in west London. I have managed to help many friends perfect their: Portuguese dialect, writing, and reading in the past and thought I would expand by assisting others. Those interested might be: students hoping to revise for GCSEs, those with Portuguese speaking business partners, or those who might be looking to improve their everyday phrases for an upcoming trip. Whatever your level of ability, I can help you.

Teaching Experience:

One-to-one tutoring with friends and family members.

Tutoring Approach:

I have booklets prepared for different ranges of ability and find that verbal repetition with the use of Portuguese songs happen to be most successful. The use of repetition allows for the correction of possible errors with diction or male/ female forms.

Personal Description:
Hi there!

My name is Hamish and I've just finished my second year studying Natural Sciences at Christ's College, Cambridge. Developing a deep understanding of the natural world is something I find incredibly satisfying and I really enjoy helping others gain a solid grasp it too.

My background is firmly rooted in the physical sciences - at school I studied Maths (pure), Physics, Chemistry and Maths (mechanics) to Advanced Higher level (equivalent to A-level in England) and achieved A* grades in all. In my first year at Cambridge I studied Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science, achieving first class grades in all of these subjects and averaging 79 across the board, placing me 14th out of 637 students in my year. In my second year I specialised in Physics and Maths and achieved a first in my examinations. I think this shows I have a deep understanding of my subject and would be able to really get to the root of my students' problems.

Teaching Experience:

In terms of experience, I have tutored Advanced Higher Physics and Maths for around a year now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I used to volunteer as a Youth Leader for my local Scouts group so have experience working with young people. In addition, at Christ's I took part in access events such as open days and student shadowing schemes which required me to be DBS checked.

Tutoring Approach:

In terms of teaching style, I aim to improve my students by really making sure they understand the fundamentals of what I'm teaching them rather than trying to make them simply rote learn knowledge. I also am a firm believer in making sure students are continuously practising and applying their knowledge by doing past paper questions - nothing prepares you for an exam better than doing the questions from previous years. I would aim to set questions from past papers as homework and then guide tutees through solutions in our next session.
