Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor and have been tutoring for the past 12 years. I am friendly and supportive and tailor learning according to the pupil's individual needs. My specialism is 19th & 20th century history and I am especially knowledgeable about British and American history. I teach pupils essential research and study skills including effective exam techniques. I have also tutored English language at secondary and GCSE level with good results. I aim to inspire confidence in my pupils and promote enthusiasm for learning in a supportive environment.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor for over 12 years. I have also helped out in primary schools on a voluntary basis and I have part completed a PGCE in Upper Primary (1999). I am have completed a PGDE at Bury College so I am qualified to teach in further and higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

I am supportive and caring and I encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own learning. I aim to inspire confidence by teaching them essential study skills and exam techniques. I teach pupils to break down learning into manageable chunks and teach them to analyse and revise their work. I make my lessons interesting and I am warm and friendly which puts pupils at ease. I also have a good sense of humour and aim to build up a strong rapport with pupils. I ask pupils to contact me between sessions if there are any concerns and I fully update parents on their child's progress.

Personal Description:
I'm a ex-mathematical physicist from Cambridge turned film director, and also freelance as a data-scientist. I have two funded feature films in development and have made music videos and adverts. I started tutoring when I switched careers because the film industry is unstable, especially as a freelancer. I keep up the tutoring now because I enjoy it and look for assignments I think are interesting and where I can really make a difference.

I am passionate about the subjects I tutor in and education in general. Education forms the foundation for freeing us from bigotry and ignorance, makes us better people and permits us to live richer, better lives. Knowledge is liberating and my subjects especially open many doors. They are not easy and require a willingness to work hard, but I strongly believe that anyone can get to grips with them if given the correct guidance. Most often the problem is not the student but a poor teacher, unresolved conceptual difficulties or lack of motivation. I want to fix these issues for you.

I'd say my approach to education is rigorous, highly intellectual and what one might term renaissance in approach. I'm interested in all aspects of education, and how our disparate academic disciplines connect which is somewhat antithetical to the modern approach to education but just the sort of thing one needs to get into Oxbridge and the like.

Why is tutoring important to me? Firstly, I feel it is my responsibility to pass on the knowledge and skills I have attained; secondly, I find it satisfying to help others learn and achieve what they did not think possible, regardless of their ability; and finally, I think one of the best ways to assess your own understanding of a subject is to teach it; we learn the most about our areas of expertise when we try convey their concepts and methods to an audience.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many (over 100) students privately over the past six years, improving their results in all cases where the students have followed my advice and worked hard. I'm only interested in teaching people who are prepared to do this work and better themselves, especially if its for something like the 11+/common entrance.

Beside the subjects listed in my profile, I will also teach 11+/common entrance, coding/game design, statistics and probability, film-making, creative writing, government and politics, economics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and I persevere. I am happy to tutor people across all ranges of ability but I expect you to work hard and follow my advice.

My tutoring includes:

- encouragement of free and critical thinking
- varying teaching methods depending on what the student is most receptive to including: problem based learning, discourse, traditional exercises, experiments, lectures
- exam preparation
- confidence building
- resolution of conceptual difficulties
- helping with homework
- homework marking
- undergraduate and postgraduate application advice
- coaching for Oxbridge entrance including the STEP papers
- interview advice at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
- email contact throughout the week to resolve your problems as an when they arise
- group tuition

Please note (a) while I am based in Hackney, I will cover all areas of London; (b) I can offer reductions for group sessions.

Personal Description:
It is a pleasure for me to offer you the best of my competence and experience in the field of teaching languages.
My major strengths are: getting right to transmit my knowledge to the students, organization to elaborate the lesson plans to achieve the best class activities, patient with those pupils that have some difficulties in the learning of languages. I usually apply pedagogical techniques and dynamic activities according to the student's skills, I also, respect and value the effort my students do to learn and to get good grades. I can say that I have always been enthusiastic about teaching, so it encourages me to study modern languages in a Pedagogical University.
I have been living in Birmingham since July 2010, and my Entry Clearance visa entitles me to work immediately as well as my National Insurance Card. In the same way I hold the UK NARIC National Recognition of my degree as British Bachelor Degree Standard and the GCSE (grades A-C) Credit Standard on a subject for subject basis.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with primary students in some schools, moreover with high school levels, and besides with university students. Likewise I have worked as a teacher with adult people in Language academies.
My relevant work experience is:
Venezuelan School, I and II primary levels. January to November 2009 Venezuela. Cela Spanish School, Spanish . August to December 2008 Venezuela. University of East (UDO), Semester I. March to July 2007 Venezuela. Educative unit Champagnat School, II primary level. September 2004 to July 2006. Venezuela. Piccadilly English Center, English levels intermediate and advanced. August 2003 to August 2004. Venezuela. Medicine school Unit of Foreign Languages (UNIDEX), May 2003 - December 2003. Venezuela. UPEL - IPB, Teacher Assistant of semester I, II, III and IV. 2000-2002.

October 1999 to August 2002 Venezuela. Centro De Secretariado Ejecutivo, INCE. May 1996 - 1998. Venezuela. Fundametal, April to December 1996. Venezuela

Tutoring Approach:

I determine the tutoring by an assessment of the student's needs and establishing realistic targets for achievement. Work with small groups can be both a valuable way to create a focused and stimulating educational environment.

Personal Description:
I am a self employed musican and tutor. I come from an academic physics background having achieved a first class masters in Physics during 2008-2012. Since then I have branched out considerably, moving towards musical and dramatic performance in my professional life. I am a self employed tutor, drum teacher and session drummer. I retain a keen interest in all things Physics and Maths and have a passion for teaching. Having ADD I'm particularly skilful at helping students with that condition and also dyslexia/dyspraxia. Finally, I'm also a training actor, and am currently preparing to take my grade 6 exam at LAMBDA, London. The training has helped me achieve exceptional verbal communication ability, a fantastic asset for any teacher.

In my spare time I write and record songs. I am an accomplished singer.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor for 2 years during which time I have had much success in raising students achievement in both short and longer term arrangements. I have helped students move from middle and lower sets to the top many times. I also teach drums from my studio in Cheltenham.

During 2013/2014 I was enrolled on a PGCE secondary science course which I left as I did not believe that the teaching style I was being asked to apply was adequately aspiring for my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an experienced Physics and Maths tutor specialising in an approach tailored towards my students unique needs and talents. I treat every student as an individual and have had much success in working with previously struggling or underachieving students, finding and bridging the barriers to their learning. Having spent a lot of time working with students struggling in middle and lower sets, I have learned never to assume that a student cannot excel in Maths or Physics; my goal is to give each student the opportunity to perform at their best, but most importantly to enjoy the process of learning, the true path to long lasting achievement!

I firmly believe in empowering students to take charge of their own study. To do this, I choose not to focus on parrot learning exam questions but rather, focus on giving students more challenging and novel problems which I set from my own bank of exercises which I continuously add to. I am a firm believer in setting homework and it is very important that student's engage with this. My philosophy is not just to work towards getting the right answer but to value all the steps in between, for it is in these paths and throughout the missteps and epiphanies along the way where all the learning takes place.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying BSc Medical Biochemistry at university. I have just finished my second year and I am about to enter my third year. I am married. I have a very logical mind and capable of finding the solution to any problem that needs solving.

Teaching Experience:

I did tutor a fellow class student in A-level maths for a short period of time to improve his understanding of maths, especially pure maths. I also taught chemistry to university students in a university in Poland and was able to help about 70% to 80% of the whole year of first year medical students pass this subject. I provided them out of hours classes to help with certain difficult provided and even provided my own version of written revision notes to help prepare for the exam.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to help the student understand the topic by giving examples and showing solutions with in-depth explanations in simple terms so that the student can understand. I even give the student example questions to try out to make sure they understand the methods or factual knowledge.

Personal Description:
FAQs

Which subject(s) do you teach?
I specialise in the humanities, the social sciences, and relevant creative industries up to (and inclusive of) degree level; I'm equipped to teach an array of closely-related topics, at various levels, by virtue of my diverse (academic and professional) background(s).

Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a (comb. hons.) bachelor's degree-English with Creative Writing, a master's degree-Professional Writing, and currently find myself undertaking a PhD by research.

How much do you charge?
My rate is £20 per hour, irrespective of subject, or level (there is no charge for the first/introductory session).

NB: my service is of no lesser quality than that of tutors whom request in excess of £60 per hour; I simply fail to see a correlation between entitlements to opportunity and financial means.

Where do you teach?
Primarily, I teach from home; however, I also offer online tuition (for those who would otherwise have to travel long distances, or are unable to travel).

When are you available?
I tutor full-time, alongside part-time postgraduate study. My hours are: 09:00-19:00, Mon-Sun.

I currently only have one space between Dec '16-Jan '17, but this may increase to two between Jan-Jun '17.

Which ages and levels do you teach?
KS1 to Level 6 (primary-degree).

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I'm an enhanced DBS certificate holder, and member of the DBS Update Service.

Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I'm a full member of The Tutors' Association.

Tell me about some of your current students.
Many of my current AS/A2 students are preparing for the January 2017 mock examinations-Psychology, English Literature, Sociology, Philosophy, or a combination thereof.

Teaching Experience:

What kind of experience do you have?
Aside from my experience as an academic tutor (which exceeds four years), I've also served NHS psychiatric services, as a negotiations/conflict resolution tutor: this role involved the design and implementation of dialectical interventions-chiefly, those concerned with emotionally complex situations (e.g. violence and aggression, high-stakes contexts, etc.).

Tutoring Approach:

Describe your tutoring approach.
I'm an experienced tutor, with a conversational approach; one that blends constructivist, cognitivist, and experiential learning theories-i.e., framing new concepts within a student's existing knowledge base, exploring (and adapting to) each student's unique learning style(s), turning theoretical concepts to practical problems, and encouraging self-directed learning (where appropriate).

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can facilitate online tuition via Skype, or a similar application. I involve a range of digital technologies (e.g. to annotate scanned written work, design original resources, etc.), with ongoing email correspondence and access to shared cloud storage serving complimentary functions.

It is not everyone who is simply good at a subject or who has an impressive qualification in that discipline, who can actually teach it. Teaching itself is an art and a skill and I am proud to be able to use my personal success, pedagogical training and ability to support and inspire students.

I enjoy what I do and I love inspiring and encouraging my students to perform well and to maximise their potential. I have a high success rate and strong track record with my students & I currently teach up to A-level.

My own academic background includes A-level English (for which I obtained one of the top five marks across the country for my cohort of 2004), a 2:1 Bachelors degree from Cambridge University before completing my teacher training on the competitive 'Teach First' fast-track teacher training programme through which, I became a fully qualified English teacher.

I am now a full-time tutor whilst I establish my own business but in my most recent, long-term teaching role (3 1/2 years, full-time up to Dec 2016), I taught both English & history to GCSE level alongside 'Government & Politics' to A-level. I am also confident in the tutoring of Psychology, having studied Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) as part of my Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining an A grade at A-level, alongside private tuition success in this area.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, I look forward to working with you...! : )

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years' teaching experience as an English teacher, four years' experience teaching GCSE history & A-level Government & Politics and two years' experience tutoring A-level Psychology (which I studied as part of Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining a 2.1 and an A grade - full marks, at A-level).

I have taught, in full-time positions at high performing secondary schools across teaching English, history & politics full-time and serving as Head of Department in previous roles.

My previous experience also includes two-years of coordinating the whole-school's English & literacy programme for a secondary school in south London. This role included me ensuring that key facets and skills related to English, literacy and academic writing were embedded across the curriculum within each department, across the school (no easy feat!). I have also ran and coordinated English booster sessions for KS3 and GCSE retake students, helping struggling students at C/D borderline or lower achieve their English Language & Literature GCSE grades.

I have a strong track record of success with students, on average achieving 80 - 90% success rate with classes, with private tutoring students commonly improving by *at least* one grade or more. One of my proudest achievements was with a GCSE student who improved from an E grade to a B grade within seven months of tutoring and an A-level student, improving from a C grade at the end of AS to an A* by the end of A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to be rigorous and professional in my approach and fully believe that marking and assessment are key to success, so students must expect homework each session (for which parental support is essential) and I will spend time marking and giving detailed assessment feedback of student work, including marking tutorials with students so they can clearly see where and how they need to improve.

Whilst, I do have quite a driven approach, I am very personable and get a buzz out of making lessons fun, relevant and engaging with a focus on skills and application, as opposed to pure knowledge. I will often use reading materials and stimuli linked to the student's own personal interests, alongside any set texts needed for English literature, as teaching resources for my lessons so that students can build on their skills, whilst using material that motivates them. Furthermore, I apply this same approach to tutoring in history, politics and psychology, focusing on current affairs and contemporary developments in each subject to make the content interesting and relevant.

As a former literacy coordinator, I am also aware that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are some of the main hindrances to students' success across all subjects and year groups (adults included!), so I put GREAT emphasis on this in ALL my subjects.

On a whole, it is important to me to teach students not only to pass their exams but to actually help them develop the reading, writing, critical thinking and analysis skills that will help them for life. This is the goal I have for my students and for myself.

Personal Description:
Hello and welcome to my profile! It's great to have you here!

OK, so I'll tell you a little about myself… My name is Aman. I am a qualified EFL/ESL teacher and I have been working abroad for the last 16 years in different countries from Thailand to Dubai.

For the last 5 years I was working with the British Council as an academic manager in Qatar. Here I was managing educational programmes and a team of teachers, which I loved! I provided training for teachers and worked on curriculum development.

When I am not working, I love movies, music, socialising and meeting new people and learning about new cultures! I am also a big coffee drinker.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching English as a foreign language.

I have taught students of all levels from beginner to advanced and have worked with students from all over the world helping them to improve and develop their general English language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking by designing lessons to bring out their full potential.

In addition to teaching general English, my ELT specialism for my Cambridge DELTA was Exam Preparation Classes. Therefore, I have solid experience and knowledge of helping learners prepare for the IELTS exam and get the band they want by focusing on the strategies needed in each module. Moreover, I can also help you prepare for the Cambridge First (FCE) exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, the heading states 'Approach to Tutoring', I look at it as 'Our Approach to Learning'.

Together, we will look at YOUR English language goals, and the best way to achieve them, as every learner has different needs.

Lessons are learner-centred, that means I do not teach in a 'lecture' style, but provide opportunities for you to produce and practise language and then look at ways to further develop and improve that language. It is important for me that you feel comfortable and relaxed in these sessions. Lessons should be enjoyable and engaging for you (and me!).

There is error correction throughout lessons, but this is where you will self-correct with my guidance making you more aware of which areas need more focus.

Depending on your level, I use a range of materials from coursebooks, internet, newspapers, magazines to podcasts and videos.

I will give you regular homework, which will help to reinforce what you have learnt and give you more independence in using English. My aim is for you to feel more confident in any situation where you have to use English.

Feel free to contact me and let's talk about what you need. You can ask me any questions and I'll be happy to explain.

There is no obligation and don't worry, I don't bite!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aman
