Personal Description:
I trained as an actor at Arts Educational schools and have twenty five years experience working as an actor, director and writer. For ten years I worked as an audio director, directing many of the UK's leading actors in recordings of 150 audio books, poetry collections and drama. As a writer I have seen my plays produced in repertory theatre and by small touring companies and have also written for TV's 'The Bill'. I now work regularly as a corporate role-play actor, often using improvisation. I enjoy the range and variety of my work and believe this brings a greater depth of understanding and knowledge to my teaching. I teach young adults aged 16 and over and adults of any age.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career as an actor-teacher, working for small theatre companies touring schools, often leading drama workshops on educational themes. I was also Assistant Lecturer in Contemporary Theatre at the London branch of Boston University, teaching American young adults. I have been teaching private students since 2003, including business people wishing to improve their communication and presentation skills, poets who wish to perform their work live, and corporate trainers seeking voice coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach at my home or travel locally, providing a safe, relaxed and supportive environment in which students can learn practical skills, build their confidence and discover their true ability. Lessons are tailored to meet the specific learning needs of the student, whether they are learning for fun or professional development. I work through voice and elocution techniques and performance skills for presenting.

Subjects

  • A-Level or Highers (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have always been aware of the importance of cultivating languages and thanks to my Bachelor's Degree in Translation and Interpreting and my subsequent work,I have excellent skills all round in Spanish, my mother tongue. Furthermore, I have gained a broad experience of making use of my linguistic skills in French.

Teaching Experience:

My stays abroad include The University of Sheffield as a Spanish Assistant, which I feel has contributed to the development of my educational abilities. I particularly worked in Spanish language classes, solving grammatical, phonetic or syntactic problems for final year students in the School of Modern Languages and Linguistics. Furthermore, my Spanish teaching qualification (CAP for Secondary Education) equips me with pedagogical and didactic skills, which I feel are transferable to the English educational context.
This summer I have successfully completed a 12 week intensive course 6 unit French Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course and I have achieved Europena Lavel B1.3, which is A Level Standard I taught French at University Level.

Tutoring Approach:

Supportive, well-organized, trying to make it interesting with a wide range of materials.

Personal Description:
I am a mathematician, with a special interest in applied mathematics and statistics. I worked for some years in University departments as a tutor and then lecturer. More recently I have worked for almost two decades in industry as a mathematician at a prestigious research centre in Cambridge. I am familiar with many aspects of secondary education through my daughter, who has recently completed her A levels at Hills Road 6th form college, and a son at secondary school. My daughter has just begun reading PPE at at Oriel College Oxford. I am currently working at the Dept. of Engineering, University of Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mathematics and Physics, to undergraduates from a wide variety of disciplines. I have particular experience of teaching Mathematics to people whose primary interests lie in Business studies and in Engineering. I also gained valuable insight into adult education when I taught adult part-time students.
I have also provided tutorials for students with many different requirements including A level and undergraduate Physics & Mathematics courses and, for example, GMAT Mathematics prep for MBA entrance exams.
Recently I have had the opportunity to tutor intensively for STEP tests and this has become a personal interest -there is always a new challenge, and the examiners are skilled at finding new ways to test the same knowledge level.

Tutoring Approach:

The details of the correct approach vary from one tutee to another, but the principles remain the same. I seek to establish the student's ability within the context of a given aim and to then set realistic objectives.
I think that most students have more mathematical ability than they themselves believe; this can be brought out in a positive fashion once negative stereotypes are discarded. Also the application of mathematics to the real world can be exciting and profitable.

Parental Comment
Hi Brian,

I hope you're enjoying the Summer break.

I just wanted to let you know that Kalen has a A* for maths and an A for further Maths. He's very pleased with this and on behalf of him I'd like to say thank you so much for all your help.

Overall he got A*A*AAB and is off to Warwick to do a general engineering course.

Thanks again Brian,

Suneela


STUDENT COMMENTS
Dear Brian. I found our tutorials very helpful and feel much more able to hit the ground running when I return to Oxford. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone else I know in need of tuition.
Peter N, returning undergraduate.

Brian helped me to revise my university maths before starting an MSc course 10 years after completing my undergraduate degree. He was patient, non-judgmental of my rusty abilities, and gave useful examples of mathematical problems to help explain some very difficult concepts. He is very reliable and a pleasure to work with. I would have no problem recommending Brian to others and would certainly see him again for further tuition should the need arise.
David C, returning graduate student

Another parent comment
Brian is helping my daughter who attends Hills Road with both physics and maths and she has just had her fifth session. This is the first time with have engaged with a personal tutor so really wasn't sure what we were doing and started out with some trepidation. We soon were able to ensure that the hour we spent with Brian was really productive and useful. Brian has been really helpful and and this has increased my daughters confidence and knowledge which is exactly what we were hoping for.

New student comments
I'm just emailing to tell you that my physics unit 2 exam went quite well. There were only a few small questions that I couldn't answer. I will tell you my result when I get them on the 14th of August. I must thank you for helping me over the past few months. I really have no clue how badly these exams would have gone if you did not help me. Thank you so much for your help.

Personal Description:
I passionately believe in students achieving their potential and enjoy the role of personal tutoring to further aid students learning. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business (2:1) and have worked for a number of large organisations offering a variety of depth and experience. I have experience both within state secondary and independent schools, as well as examining experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for 10 years in a variety of differing schools and colleges throughout the UK. I have taught on many different specifications for Business and Economics. I have taught on all courses AQA, OCR and EdExcel including vocational (OCR Nationals/BTEC) and traditional qualifications (GCSE/A Level).

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I like to make an initial meeting to understand the needs and objectives of the personal tutoring before developing a detailed plan of the outline of personal tutoring support. I am keen to ensure that both parents and students alike are happy with the service and will accommodate additional requests. I like to ensure that the learner is both enthused and engaged in the tutoring sessions and have a range of resources and assessment techniques.

Personal Description:
In recent years I have acquired a passion for SQL Server databases and especially the optimization thereof. I love to prove that the impossible can be done. I have been building computer systems and software applications since the age of 15 which later evolved into intelligent corporate solutions. I am always happy and have a very friendly personality and attitude towards life. I also enjoy cycling and I'm a SkyRide Leader I also volunteer with St John Ambulance.

Teaching Experience:

I'm a full time enterprise software developer. I use the following languages on a daily basis: C#, VB.Net, HTML, Javascript, SQL Server, SSIS and SSRS. I have done many training sessions for colleagues at work and also trained people with no experience at all.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very open and easy going approach to training. I make sure that everything that is questioned is understood not just explained. I spend as much time as required to ensure the student understands. I believe in the following quote, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough" - Albert Einstein, and help students achieve this.

Personal Description:
I'm a friendly, qualified teacher, currently working in a London secondary school teaching RS, Philosophy and English. I studied Theology and Religious Studies at Cambridge (achieved a First) and moved to London to do an MA in International Politics and Human Rights at City University. I caught the London bug so I'm still here! I really enjoy the opportunity it offers to teach students from a whole range of backgrounds and abilities. I have always loved learning, and I love helping children develop their understanding of the world through their chosen subjects, so I find tutoring really rewarding.

I am both professional and personable, and have always had good relationships with my tutees and their parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of experience with children through nannying and youth camps I've helped on over the past 10 years, and also have experience tutoring 1-1 in London on a weekly basis. I did my teacher training in Tower Hamlets 2 years ago, and have been working as a teacher since. I achieved 'Outstanding' or 'Good' standards in all lessons that were observed during my training.

I am passionate about the importance of education, for building both competence and confidence into children and young adults.

The Cambridge supervision system showed me how beneficial individual tutoring can be. I had two 1-1 sessions every week with my subject supervisors, which taught me first hand how to inspire, challenge and build confidence in the tutor-tutee relationship.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have a preliminary discussion (usually by phone, but in person is also fine) with the student's parent(s) to find out about the student's level of understanding, capability and confidence, as well as their main goals and any relevant exam board they are attached to. I will tailor my approach on this basis, as well as through meeting the student and talking about what s/he finds interesting and how s/he learns best.

The method of teaching will vary between pupils as well as between subjects, most markedly between languages and sciences. However, common methods used will be explaining and clarifying any 'sticking points', going through set questions and reviewing the answers, and using creative means to bring the subject to life for the student. I strongly believe that when a student enjoys the learning process and achieves set goals, however small, his/her learning is much faster and memory is greatly improved.

  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm a Beijing-born writer and teacher, winner of international prizes for Chinese writing, and author of best-selling non-fiction books. I first came to the UK in 1994, after studying history and culture in China. I'm married to a well-known British translator of Chinese, and I live in Whitley Bay.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Mandarin at Newcastle University Business School in the 1990s, when I also taught business people in companies such as Yves St. Laurent, both one-to-one and in small groups. I also gave supplementary tuition to British undergraduates in reading, writing, listening and speaking Mandarin, on a one-to-one basis.
I taught Mandarin in Hong Kong from 2000 to 2009, to all age groups, from toddlers to retirees, both privately and in companies; I taught both Cantonese speakers and non-Chinese English speakers. I also taught at the Hong Kong Open University.

Tutoring Approach:

I have worked on one-to-one and small group teaching: I like an interactive situation where tutor and student work out the student's needs together, and the tutor helps the student to meet his/her goals by acting as facilitator and learning advisor.
My focus is on learning, and not on teaching: it is the tutor's job to help the student learn better, until the point is reached where the student has become an effective and autonomous learner, and no longer needs a teacher.
Many of my students have become friends and remained friends.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher all my professional life, although for ten years I worked in the theatre as an actor, fight director and singer. I love teaching and I love music. Most importantly, perhaps, I have never stopped learning!

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English, French and German for 25 years. I studied English at Oxford; worked in Germany, studied in Spain and have my main home in France. I recently trained in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, so I feel up to date with current teaching methodology. Nevertheless, I adapt my teaching style and methods to benefit my tutees. I teach adult evening classes and give private tuition in French, German and English Literacy.

Tutoring Approach:

I will come to your home and talk to you about what your learning requirements are and will tutor in order for you to maximise your potential in line with your requirements. All tutees have different learning styles and preferences, too, so I will pick up on yours and shape our lessons accordingly. We will work proactively, and there will be specific goals and targets for each lesson so that you will be able to chart your progress. My colleagues think I have a great sense of humour, and I have sometimes found it to be helpful in a teaching situation. I am, however, totally professional in the conduct of my lessons and tutorials.

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:
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 live in Colinton, Edinburgh and am happy to receive tutees at my home or travel within a reasonable distance.

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.
