Personal Description:
I work for a large firm of city accountants in London. I have completed my chartered accountancy exams and will be a qualified chartered accountant as of the end of August 2015.

I studied French language and literature at Oxford University from which I graduated with a 2:1. I studied French, Latin and English at A-level.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children of all age groups, from nine year-olds to A-Level students, in Latin, English, French and Economics. Most recently, I have tutored a thirteen year-old boy, helping him to pass his Common Entrance exams and get into Eton College with excellent results.

Tutoring Approach:

I can help anybody with speaking and writing the French language as well as analysing a broad range of French literature. For English, I can assist anyone with the creative, linguistic and grammatical side of the subject as well as the critical analysis of both set texts and unseen passages. For Latin, I can help with literary analysis and translation, both Latin-to-English and English-to-Latin. My style of tutoring is flexible - it is entirely dependent upon the nature of tutoring that is required.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in mathematical physics and started tutoring while at university.
I have been a full-time professional tutor for over seven years and I teach maths and all science subjects from year 8 up to GCSE and for Common Entrance and Maths, Further maths, Physics and Chemistry to A-level.
I am an exam marker for the OCR exam board and I mark controlled assessments at a school in Ipswich.

Teaching Experience:

I initially started tutoring at university while I was doing my PhD and found that I had the ability to help pupils understand the underlying concepts of maths and physics. Instead of just giving my tutees the answers to questions, I always tried to provide interesting examples of the principles behind the topics being studied in order to give a deeper understanding of the subject.
I worked in IT for many years and started tutoring again after helping my daughters with their GCSEs and A-levels.
I have been a full-time tutor for over seven years. I have taught pupils from a wide variety of schools - including state, independent and boarding schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to ensure that my students have a good understanding of the underlying principles of the subjects. This ensures they can deal with a great variety of exam questions and enables them to get the best result possible.
I am patient and helpful and believe I have a good understanding of young people and how they learn and study.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from a Masters degree in drama at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama having graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English. Teaching has always been a great passion of mine and one to one tutoring is the most rewarding, in its opportunity for directness and specificity.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for three years and have also tutored drama in schools over the last few years. I have also had teaching experience abroad, teaching English as a foreign language in Indian and African schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to make learning fun whilst also ensuring fast and effective progress. I ensure that I get to know my students' ways of learning as soon as possible in order to tailor my tutoring style to their individual needs. I hope to be able to offer a way of learning different but utterly beneficial to the current exam syllabuses which can often seem fairly daunting and rigid on first impression.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher and have been teaching maths privately and in comprehensive schools fo over 25 years. I am a maths teacher at an 11 - 16 comprehensive school where I teach KS3, KS4 maths classes.
Part of my responsibility is to direct teaching and learning within my department, and to do this I monitor the constant changes and developments to do with the teaching and assessment of maths. This keeps me aware of all the changes to the format and style of the exam papers (the specifications have changed and there has been a major shift in the style and difficulty of the questions making them more functional and requiring additional skills in answering them, a fact that some non-qualified, non-up-to-date teachers may not be aware of!)
I have successfully tutored students through GCSEs at both higher and foundation levels and within both modular and linear settings and have experience with all the major exam boards (AQA, OCR, and Edexcel)

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in comprehensive schools for over 25 years and at all key stages. I am currently a maths teacher and a private maths tutor. I have over 25 years experience teaching privately and have an excellent, proven track record having always made improvements to my students' grades, sometimes from 'D' to A*.

Tutoring Approach:

I visit the student at their home for the lesson, which is usually one hour per week (but this arrangement can be flexible). I will perform an analysis to tailor the individual needs of the student. Once the student has a good understanding of the concepts, I teach methods of answering exam style questions, then move on to past exam papers giving them the skills and confidence to do well in the exam.
Following each lesson I like to have an informal chat with the student and family to give feedback on progress made.
I can also offer short booster lessons in order to bring the student 'up to speed' or to prepare for exams that may require only one or two hours.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

Personal Description:
I can help with the new GCSE/GCE exams and Brighton College and Westminster School scholarship coaching are recent successes. I am also a former Advanced Skills Teacher with many years of experience working in a comprehensive school with all abilities from GCSE to A levels / Oxbridge entrance. My key priority is to provide a safe learning setting where the learner and my starting point is always to be where the learner is rather than a fixed programme in advance.

Enhanced DBS / CRB status February 2014

Clearly you will need to know if this will be the right arrangement for you, so the first lesson is free with no commitment to continue.

If your child has the potential, I can enable him or her to achieve the highest grades: knowing what the exam requires you to do will make a difference

Teaching Experience:

I have coached a pupil who gained a scholarship for Brighton College and another who was awarded the Queen's Scholarship to enter Westminster School, London. In both cases exams tested a whole range of traditional skills set at a relatively demanding level for this age group. Future candidates would be welcome to contact me.

Prior to this, I have taught pupils from 11 years upwards to Advanced Level pupils heading for Oxbridge. I have worked as an examiner for an exam board, set and marked papers at GCSE and taught adults in evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

Tuition offered via Skype which offers greater flexibility of timings, lengths of lesson etc as well benefits for teaching using Google docs which record lesson progress, better use of resources etc.

Tuition also offered in student's home within Brighton if required or a mix of the above

On-line tasks can be set in between lessons to practise skills learnt.

Lively approach including games where appropriate.

Teaching linked to the exam board specification you are working towards including specific skills at GCSE / A level.

Grammar taught relevant to your needs: to include the new course requirements when published.

Feedback after each session to parents/ guardian or carer if requested to include likely grade potential at GCSE / A level or IB

A / AS / IB level students will work through short accessible texts to build up topic vocabulary but also support class tuition in your college or school.

Common Entrance Level candidates or specific entry exams for schools will receive very focused teaching to prepare for the exam.

Adult tuition for business or leisure.

I would be pleased to work with students in groups of 2 or 3 for a reduced fee per person.

Fees are a little higher than perhaps for other tutors, but you will be receiving a premium service with many more benefits than a session's tuition: every 10th lesson is free!

Personal Description:
I am 24 years old, based in South Oxfordshire and currently working for the Civil Nuclear Police full time Monday to Friday. I am looking to tutor in my spare time, not only to earn some extra money for my husband and I, but also as I have a passion for teaching and it is a career I always considered myself following. I have a degree in English Literature and Creative writing from Kingston University London, graduating in 2013 with a 2:1 BAHons. I have always had a passion for English, particularly poetry, writing regularly in my free time. I have wanted to become a teacher from a very young age however, due to financial needs, was unable to undertake a PGCE course immediately after finishing my undergraduate degree.
As I work for the Police I have been fully background checked and passed the DBS checks which were conducted between January and April 2016.

Teaching Experience:

I have completed two weeks work experience in a primary school in North Wales where I helped with the reception and year one classes. I was tasked with helping the children with all their work, from spelling and maths, to reading and writing. I would be willing, as a tutor, to help primary school age children with all subjects; from 11+ I would be more suited to English Literature or English Language however I am willing to discuss the child's needs and am happy to help with pre-GCSE maths, science or history also. I regularly check Undergraduate level essays for grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors for my two sisters in law, one of whom is studying War Studies and the other Primary Teaching. When in my late teens I would read with a young boy every week to help him improve.

Tutoring Approach:

Though I have never been employed as a tutor previously, I do have experience working with children and young adults, as well as a keen eye for detail. I am extremely patient and willing to persevere to find the learning method which works best for the child or young adult; I have experience in this with my youngest sister in law, who is just 16, whom I have been helping with her GCSE chemistry; chemistry is certainly not my subject, however I took time to read through her text books and her work, to ensure I knew exactly what she needed to do, before helping her to find a way to understand herself. I appreciate that not all subjects come easily to every individual and that, though I may have a passionate love of English, not everyone will share that and so, when tutoring anyone I should not be telling them that English is great - that is just my opinion; instead, I should be helping them to access it, to understand it better, and making it a little easier for them in the process. If, on top of that, they come to love the subject also, that is great; if not, that is fine too.
I would always propose that I meet once with the parents,and child or young adult, free of charge, to discuss the exact requirements: That way I can come to the first tutoring session knowing what needs improving, where my help is most needed and, also, how I think the tutee needs to taught - do they find the subject boring? In which case I need to show them ways in which it can become more interesting, even fun. Do they find the subject really difficult? In which case we need to find ways to make it more accessible and less daunting. I also can leave the fist session knowing exactly how the parents or guardians want me to tutor their child - do you want me to set my own tasks and homework for the tutee to help improve the weaker aspects of their work? Do you want me to help them with work they are being set in school, perhaps a specific text? All of this will help ensure that both the tutee and I get the most out of the time we spend together.

Personal Description:
Physics is (in my opinion) a fantastic subject, and one that is highly regarded in society, not to mention indispensable if a career in engineering or some of the sciences is to be pursued.

Before I decided to change career and become a teacher, I worked for a British sports car manufacturer as a design engineer, using many of the principles I now teach in my then, day to day work.

I graduated from Coventry University in 2000 with a BEng (Hons) in Automotive Engineering Design, before going on to read an MBA in Business Management.

After a number of years working in the automotive industry, I got involved in teaching through the Formula Schools initiative.

I graduated from The University of Nottingham in 2010 with a PGCE in Secondary Science (Physics).

This history of working in industry before going becoming a teacher/tutor allows me to bring in relevant examples of where the theory fits in with the real world. I feel that this is important and I find it helps to bring a subject to life for the student,

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a physics teacher in 2010 and have worked as a teacher or tutor since.

I now work full time as a physics tutor, working on a one to one basis with students across a spectrum of abilities at both G.C.S.E. and A level.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide a calm, friendly approach, taking care to find where precisely the student is having problems, then either tweak theories and knowledge in order to correct any misconceptions or start from the beginning with them, taking the time to fully support, explain and develop the student's knowledge and skills in that area, making sure that the foundations are laid to create a strong base for any future knowledge to be built upon. This is important in both G.C.S.E and A level as they are both built upon a spiral curriculum, whereby topics and previous knowledge are revisited and used time and time again throughout the course.

Often, the difference between a puzzled look and the "eureka" moment that all teachers strive for, is just one explanation or a slight tweak on the explanation of a theory away. Sometimes, the difference may be supporting the examples and calculation side, this support then giving the student the confidence in their knowledge and understanding.

In addition to providing subject content tuition, I also provide exam preparation and technique,, past paper practice, revision schedules, constant progress monitoring and ongoing progress evaluation..

Career Summary

I worked as an accountant for 30 years, culminating in a role as Chief Financial Officer of Ireland's largest insurance company. I have worked with UK and European regulators, and was responsible for managing a multi-billion pound investment portfolio. I worked as a freelance senior finance manager for two years, in the City of London.

Recently I decided to have a career change, and become a secondary school (GCSE and A-Level) teacher, in the Science Department, specialising in Physics. Before starting my teacher training in September 2017 I am spending a term working as a cover teacher, across all subjects and covering Year 7 (11-year olds) through Year 13 (18-year olds).

Personal Details

I live in rural Northamptonshire, and am very excited about my new career. I have a DBS (criminal records check) allowing me to work unsupervised with children. I enjoy travelling, cultural tourism and cooking. I am a non-smoker.

Teaching Experience:

While working as an accountant, I set up and ran the company's trainee accounting scheme and have always enjoyed teaching and coaching, from basic levels to delivering training for Boards of Directors.

I enjoy teaching and coaching my 14-year old daughter, and have some experience coaching primary school Maths (in preparation for Year 6 SATs). I felt called to teaching and have changed careers to enable this. I have recent experience teaching secondary school classes, but enjoy 1:1 coaching very much. I am easy to get on with and can establish good rapport with my students very quickly.

My formal teacher training starts in September 2017, but my life experience and subject matter knowledge make me well suited to the role of tutor. I am largely skewed towards numerical subjects, but am also fastidious in my use of English grammar and writing, due to having spent thirty years providing high quality reports to senior and junior colleagues.

Tutoring Approach:

I very much prefer to work using the syllabus and textbooks with which the student is already familiar, as it can be very confusing to be taught different approaches by a school and by a tutor. If textbooks are unavailable (many schools do not allow textbooks to be taken home), I can probably source them, but at the student/parent's expense.

My style is very engaging, and I seek to understand how my students view the subject, and work with them to fill in any gaps and increase student confidence. I don't like giving rote lessons, which I think are dry and little better than reading the textbook. I really enjoy bringing a subject alive by relating the topic to the real world, and by including interesting facts and information.

Tutoring has to work both for the tutor and the student, and I will always try to make the lessons fun and stimulating. If I don't think the student is benefitting from my tuition, I will discuss this at an early stage. It makes no sense to press on with continued lessons if my approach or the student response is unsatisfactory.

I don't think that every student can become A* grade in every subject, but tuition can increase confidence, improve performance, reduce anxiety, and give a student the best possible chance of fulfilling their potential.
