Personal Description:
I have been a teacher for more than thirty years. I was a university lecturer and private tutor in Hungary and I continued teaching as a tutor when I came to England. I am passionate about teaching; helping pupils improve is very important to me.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I was teaching drama at different levels, as well as English literature and language. I started teaching Maths for younger children when I came to England. I also marked theses in Literature as a lecturer and advised students on writing papers in Literature. I taught several courses; for example, Essay writing, Language skills, Communication skills and Drama and Theatre. I based my drama lessons on my experiences as a Fulbright scholar at the Drama Department at the University of Oregon, USA.
I am especially enthusiastic about helping students with their essays; teaching them how to find focus and express their ideas precisely and coherently; organise and proofread their work; how to write a good introduction and conclusion.
Pupils I have taught have been admitted to Wolverhampton Girls' High School, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Chase Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient teacher. I have helped children and adults of different ages to achieve their goals. In my opinion anyone can improve; the teacher's role is essential in the process. It is my responsibility to understand individual needs and to make sure that I create the best learning environment both physically and psychologically.
I am friendly and strict at the same time.
It is very important to tailor lessons to individual needs. My main priority is to find the best way to help the student improve. Motivating them can take different forms: encouragement, gentle pressure, being more strict and so on. Every student is different; it is my responsibility to find the best approach.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for reading this synopsis:

I speak five languages and have been teaching people of all ages and levels now since 2000. My level of success can be equated to the continuous success of my students for sixteen years.

I teach Portuguese, Spanish and English for Foreigners as a fluent native speaker because I have lived in the countries where these languages are spoken.

My degree is in Modern Languages and Linguistics, which means I also edit and translate work into various languages. My MA is in Linguistics and I have worked for years now with well known multinationals and celebrities.

Teaching Experience:

1994 - Taught English for Foreigners and Spanish at the well known Brazilian University of Campinas. I did this whilst doing a year abroad in Brazil to master Portuguese. My students where all faculty deans of that university.
1995-1997 - Taught English, Spanish and Portuguese in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Apple Language School
1997-1998 - Taught at Berlitz in Panama, Republic of Panama also in Quito, Ecuador, and Manchester University.
1999-2003 - Self-employed Language Tutor - teaching individuals and well known organisations such as Delloitte, Mercedes Benz, Unibanco, Santander, Lloyds TSB, DLA Piper International, Volkswagen, PwC and many others.
2003-2004 - Post- Graduate Degree in Modern Languages - Education - Taught at several secondary schools.
2005 - To Date - Have taught several students as a private tutor to pass all exams from GCSEs to Graduate degrees and Doctorates. I have also taught several well known footballers and celebrities.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach as I would like to be taught - By someone experienced who knows what systems work in a secure and fun environment.
I mastered new languages many years ago, but in order to succeed I had to try several systems before perfecting what I now offer - I understand that everyone has different needs so I simply adapt to your needs and make sure that you enjoy what you learn... and learn a lot.

Personal Description:
Hello and thanks for taking the time to browse my profile.
I am available to tutor up to any level of Spanish, as well as up to GCSE level French or Maths.

Teaching Experience:

I`m an experienced classroom teacher available for French, Spanish or Maths tuition.
I studied BSc Accounting with Spanish before taking my PGCE, and I have experience of tutoring English to Spanish schoolchildren as a language assistant, and also of tutoring English to individuals privately in their own homes.
I am now a full time teacher of French and Spanish in one of the top boarding schools in England, having previously worked in an "outstanding" secondary school, where I tutored children (one-to-one) in Maths after school, after having completed a short course in one-to-one tutoring provided by Hertfordshire LEA.
I am also currently studying for my MEd in Educational Psychology, which I hope to complete soon. I have recently completed the CCRS qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

I am able to tailor my lessons to suit the individual needs of each student, whether it be focussed on Speaking, Listening, Reading or Writing (for the languages), or any specific topic for Maths.
I hope to talk to you soon.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris. With a good academic background, and now with excellent feedback, my approach is to not only impart knowledge, but also attempt to generate a passion for a subject that will remain long after any examination success. Educated at King's Collage School, Wimbledon and a subsequent degree course in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at King's College, London, I joined the BBC as a television recording engineer in 1976. I became a successful editor with the BBC and continue to enjoy the same role now on a freelance basis.
I am a good communicator, and seem to have the knack of explaining sometimes difficult concepts with clear and concise explanations. I have kept in touch with my core subjects (maths, physics and science) throughout my life and retain a keen interest in all of them. I'm not just a book-based dry academic but someone who knows how to fire enthusiasm for learning that will last long after any examination paper. My work has never been Mon-Fri 9-5, so I am available during the working day both in term time and school holidays.

Teaching Experience:

I have now been tutoring Maths for over two years which has generated good feedback and positive results from parents and students alike.
I think that is all that counts.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to impart my enthusiasm for the subject to my students. This is so much easier on a one to one basis compared with the classroom. A tutor will often cause the 'penny to drop', not by simply repeating a classroom lesson, but by offering a different explanation of a problem. Working in close contact with the syllabus, I quickly identify areas of weakness in the understanding of a subject, and repair that damage as quickly as possible. This is essential, especially in maths, as new concepts can rely so heavily on previous knowledge, which, if absent, will make comprehension of new material even more difficult. This is presumably why you are looking for a tutor in the first place. Homework, mock exam questions are essential, not only as feedback for me to know how successful any lesson has been, but also for you as a parent to see if any improvement has been achieved. A return for your investment if you like. Get in touch.

Personal Description:
Friendly and enthusiastic tutor and facilitator teaching Drama at all levels (GCSE, A Level, Degree, Auditioning for drama schools, coaching for professionals). Teaching English and Media Studies to GCSE and Film at all levels.

I am a very experienced tutor (and professional practitioner). I really enjoy working with individuals and getting them inspired about their subjects, because what examiner's really want is enthusiastic, intelligent thinkers who have their own opinion.

I have written, directed and produced many plays and films and worked extensively teaching and directing professional actors. I have had work in the Brighton and Lewes Festivals and I founded a number of theatre companies. I currently run a nationally recognised drama company that produces plays and films about social injustice and human rights issues.

Teaching Experience:

Experienced tutor and facilitator. Taught in both mainstream and special needs schools and colleges in London (Wandsworth College and the City Lit.) and for East and West Sussex Education authorities. I have run special projects for Gifted and Talented pupils for East Sussex and have run youth theatres and produced numerous theatre, film and writing projects. I taught Drama, English and creative writing to seriously ill children at St Bartholomew`s Hospital school for over five years. My work has been featured in The Times Educational Supplement.

Qualification in teaching from the City Lit., Diploma in drama from an accredited British Drama School. Trained in film at the Kensington Film Project and Brighton Film School as well as training with film director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, The Croupier).

Experienced writer and happy also to teach writing and play/screenplay writing.

Tutoring Approach:

A member of AQA and Edexcel, I work with past papers to make sure students are thoroughly prepared for examinations. I work in a person centred way so that the teaching session is focused on each student's particular needs. I create learning plans for each student. I am empathetic to learners and able to empower students, get them enthusiastic about the work and able to think for themselves.
Extensive practical experience of writing, drama; acting and directing, means I can be of particular assistance to students studying plays and novels. I have developed special resources for A Doll`s House, An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, Romeo and Juliet etc. (all GCSE and A level texts), These resources enable students to gain a deep understanding of the text and to know how to approach exam questions.

Some feedback from my students August 2015:

"Dear Will, I just wanted to let you know how brilliantly he did in his exams! He got the well deserved A in drama, an A* in English and a C in Biology. Warwick required AAB but A*AC is the equivalent and they have confirmed his place for September 2016.
Thank you for all your help and support.

"We're thrilled, she got an A! thanks so much"

"Good news. She secured a B overall in her Drama A2 as a result of a B in her written paper - it was this B which in fact secured her place at Southampton. So the exercise of resitting the written exam was well worth it and your input made all the difference, so huge thanks from us both".

"Just to let you know he got B in both Drama and Film. He is really pleased and only 3 marks of an A overall!! so thanks for all the help and I hope we can do some more work this year.

Personal Description:
Dr. Ray

I am a University Philosophy Lecturer with 12 Years Academic Experience in teaching and the design of tests and exams.

Areas of Specialisation : Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Mind, Epistemology, Logic, Philosophy of Language, Aesthetics, Political Philosophy.


Some of my main Achievements:
________________________________________


➢ The Myth of the Closed Mind: Explaining Why and How People are Rational, Showcased on The Peoples Book Prize. com

➢ Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Karl Popper Forums. (est. 1995)
Funding from Dublin City University and The Open Society Institute.

➢ Producer of a Philosophical YouTube channel: (est. 2008) 38,000 views.

➢ Member of the Editorial Board of The Journal of Social and Evolutionary Systems.

➢ Writer for Nature, The New Scientist, Science Spectrum
and The Times Higher Educational Supplement.



Recent publication:

"Does the New Classicism Need Evolutionary Theory?" (2016).
In After the Avant-Gardes. Chicago: Open Court Publishers.

Teaching Experience:

I taught MA students philosophy of science at the University of Lancaster and, from 2004 to 2012, I taught at the United Arab Emirates University, specializing in the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of science, winning a prize for educational videos and podcasts. I have also designed entrance exams for US amercian medical colleges, covering critical thinking and logic.

Since 1990, I have also published many articles and reviews for Nature, The New Scientist, Science Spectrum and The Times Higher Educational Supplement and National Review. I am the author of The Myth of the Closed Mind: Explaining Why and How People are Rational.

Tutoring Approach:

My approcah to teaching is best summed up as student-problem-based learning, in which the student attempts to solve problems that they have identified as of stimulating interest to themselves and relevant to their intended qualifications. I believe that all learning starts with the student's own first rudimentary explorations of an issue. I act as a conversational and critical guide through this journey, providing reading material, questions, and formal techniques of citation.

My YouTube channel, currently with 38,000 view, is available for my students to consult.

Typically, a student will select an issue/question in philosophy, we will discuss it one-to-one, and then the student will produce a short essay on the issue, which we will critically discuss in the following session.

I am also available for one-on-one study days (consisting of 6 hours each) for 160.

Personal Description:
Hello,

My name is Mayan and I am a 3rd year Politics and International Relations undergraduate. I am a determined and ambitious student who is looking to tutor a young person who is struggling with their political studies.

I have always had a natural interest in national and international politics; it is ever-changing and I like to make sure I am up to date with what is happening in the world as it affects every single person!

Teaching Experience:

I have had teaching experience with children between the ages of 5 - 12 years teaching English and Maths. In 2012, I ran a debating society in my school where I coached 13-18 year olds debating and public speaking skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I like to meet my student and understand what their course is all about as I understand from personal experience that depending on which board you are with, your exams and assignments will vary. Following this it is important for me to find out what exactly the student is struggling with; is it learning the content or exam study skills? Once we have established this, I like to take a structured approach to tutoring where both the student and I will agree on what we would like to achieve each week - whether it is how to make a great essay or learning a new political topic!

I like to motivate my students to love what they are studying and not to just do it for the sake of it. I hope that I can help you with not only the political content but in really enjoying the subject!

Where I teach: University of Southampton. This is because I truly believe that it is important to be in a quiet and focused room in a study environment! This is useful for both myself and the student to ensure the best grades.

I am very flexible so if there is anything that you require as a student or parent, please let me know!

Personal Description:
Hi all,

I am a chemistry graduate with a fresh and wide knowledge of the subject. My strongest qualities are probably that I can explain science in plain language and I am genuinely interested to get you interested! We can start from the basics if needed and step by step working our way up to understand the underlying concepts of chemistry. I have a great amount of experience in writing coursework and assignments, I can teach you to research effectively and grab the details you need without getting lost in the huge amount of information you can find on the internet. I can give you hints on how to put essays and papers together if you got any issues with that. I enjoy when when my students get confidence, show interest and of course that leads to better grades eventually. It takes time and effort though, you have to work hard if you want to improve! I can effectively assist with biology, biochemistry as well.

Teaching Experience:

I teach since 2013 and find a great joy in it, because every student is different and there is always a challenge to find the best possible way to make them work for those results. There are different techniques and useful tips I can give how to remember more complex topics, but naturally you will have to take your time to read and practice as well if you'd like to make the most of it. I can help you to work through the sometimes complex and abstract ideas and concepts, they will help you to develop useful skills you don't even know of. It is impossible to remember everything and luckily this is not what they expect from you on exams. You need a good grasp of the subject , so you can solve seemingly complicated questions if you know the basics very well and are able to make associations. You need to develop a good sense of judgement and should be able to see the point in less straight forward questions as well. My ultimate goal is to help you getting to a stage where you will independently work without the need of much feedback and support.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very friendly and easy-going nature and I will try to make sure that students will feel comfortable during the lessons. I think that is particularly important, because they should not feel shy or awkward about asking the same thing several times in case they don't get it straight away. I am more than happy to go through over and over anything you have problems with. There is always a different way to explain it, just as everybody has a different mindset! Small details can make huge differences and better understanding will help to get the confidence the students need when they assessed at exams . I regularly check if my help is effective and the most suitable in the particular topic. I always take my time to prepare as well, to be ready to answer any question and I always make sure there are no blind spots. I believe in active learning, therefore we will solve questions most of the time instead of going through the book. Of course my personality or teaching style should not fit all, then I will advise to keep on searching until you find the right person you can learn from.
