Personal Description:
I am a caring and patient teacher . I develop good relationships with my pupils and care about their general well being. I adapt teaching aproaches to suit individual pupils to enable them to engage with the learning in a postive and supportive way. Children say they like my lessons and enjoy being tutored by me.
If you home school your child I can provide tutoring of a specific subject area fit around your timetable and the way your child prefers to learn.
I am also a parent of boys with SEN,(dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and adhd) and have a good knowledge of special education needs and the impact of these on teaching, learning and home life.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 5 years in the primary age range and really enjoy it. I have been privately tutoring for 6 years covering both all literacy areas and maths. I have up-to-date training in the new grammar, spelling and punctuation KS2 SAT's paper. In the area of spelling, I have current experience in the synthetic phonics approach. I have used this from the beginning stages in year 1, and also adapted teaching with the support of practical materials to pupils in KS2.
I can provide references from parents of current pupils.

I am able to support your child through the transition into secondary school, providing practical ideas to get ready and support during the first term to enable them to remain positive about their potential as a learner. I can also help advise on issues arising from difficulties in personal organisation from moving around the school to coping with having the right things in their bag on a daily basis.

I can tutor pupils through secondary education in English and English literature. I can support those who are experiencing dyslexic issues and need some support with homework.

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual taking into account both parents and the pupils views and needs. I provide suport to catch up on missed areas of basic skills, which is delaying learning, as well as being able to support targets set by school for the pupils individual progress. Through an initial consultation I seek to find out what the needs are and, with parents and pupil, plan suitable help to reach their goals. I share objectives with parents and pupils and give regular feed back to both to reach those goals. I belive it is important for all to see progress is being made. With parents and pupils permission, I like to make contact with their teacher to work with class teacher in identifing areas of difficulty and planning appropriate support. I find that this approach give the maximum benefit for all concerned.
The greatest difference I make to my pupils is to increase their confidence which in turn enables them to be more willing to take part in whole class sessions at school. Teachers of at least 2 of my pupils have remarked on the difference in attitude of the pupils who I have tutored.

Tutoring Approach:

My training revolves around clarification, scepticism and individuality. All training is time managed to ensure the student gets the most out of their lessons. We begin with a clear set objective and make sure the student has in mind the goal of every exercise undertaken. Rather than teach a list of techniques, I actively engage all students to get the most out of their individual strengths and I encourage them to look critically at what will work best for them. I promote a self-coaching concept for more efficient skill retention.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old Austrlian Teacher with a passion for nature and wildlife. I have experience with tutoring students in Australia and I absolutely love working 1 on 1 with students to help them achieve their personal learning goals.

Teaching Experience:

I am a KS3 and KS4 teacher, trained in Australia. I have 1 years teaching experience in Australia and have been working as a KS3 and 4 Science/ Maths teacher for the last 18 months in England. In the year next academic year 2014 - 2015 I will be teaching only mathematics, but am still able and interesting in tutoring GCSE science.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe it is essential to the success of a tutee to first pin-point which particular issues they believe are stopping them from achieving their target grades. From their, I can work with the tutees and their parents on long term success strategies, whether it be revising concepts from previous key stages which were not fully developed, understanding teachers' feedback, or overcoming low literacy skills. This process will help tutees become more self-reliant learners, in turn giving them confidence in themselves and their abilities.

Personal Description:
I am a voracious reader, and was therefore tempted to choose English as my main subject in university, but eventually decided on French. I studied at Stanford University for four years, including one year through its study abroad programme in Paris. I have also worked many years as a professional musician, touring in the UK, Europe, USA and Mexico.

Teaching Experience:

I taught English to high school students for one year in France.
In a night school in Utah (USA) I taught English as a second language to adults.
I have taught music (guitar, ukulele and piano) for nearly 10 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in student-centred teaching, so rather than impose strict rules I approach each student as an individual in order to find the best approach for gaining skills and confidence in the subject. Structure is also important, however, and it's important to use exercises and repetition to really come to terms with a subject. Games and songs have their place, too; let's have fun while we're learning!

Personal Description:
Hi

I'm Patrick. I am currently doing an apprenticeship in electrical and electronic engineering through South West Trains. I have A levels in Maths, Physics and English language. I also have a BTEC in engineering, a higher national certificate in electrical and electronic engineering and am a qualified IOSH manager.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years experience teaching drums to children aged 10-16. Although I have never tutored maths and physics before I feel that I'll be more familiar with current syllabi and therefore more able to understand the tutee's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I always found that I learnt more when the subject was made fun so a lot of my tutoring plans are based on using interesting activities to explain complicated theories better. I'm pretty relaxed and will always allow a student to learn at their own pace without rushing them, leaving them to figure out as much as they can on their own.

Personal Description:
I am a motivated and dedicated person, with interests in SEN field but also teaching, HR and Psychology. I am currently writing an article about children with autism and hope to release it next year. I am a fully qualified teacher with BA and MA degree in Psychology, mainly the sector of SEN covering challenging behavior, emotional disorders and psychiatric illnesses.

I am very honest, reliable, sociable, punctual and dedicated person looking for the right opportunity to arise and give it my utmost to deliver and be a great member of a team, to share my knowledge and background with others, to learn from others and ultimately to help, support, guide and advice young children.

I am great with children, I have plenty of experience of different settings; in the past I have been working as a volunteer for many hospitals of children such as neurological and psychiatric infant clinics and what I done was to support and carry out certain therapeutic programs with SEN children in order to get them better and improve their lifestyle.

I have also worked a lot in nurseries, small schools and educational settings as part of my university course' teaching assistant and children adviser were my main roles. I enjoy supporting children and helping them improving their life, their way of thinking and answering their questions. I most enjoy working with those students who exhibit challenging behavior and to find ways of helping them coping with their difficult times, help them integrate and manage SENCO elements.

I am applying for this role because I feel there is so much within myself to be given away and teach young minds, I am very passionate of becoming a role model for our students and help them achieve better improved academic potential. I believe that I have good standard of knowledge and education, skills and patience, confidence and understanding to be able to teach young people and help them with their learning. I want to make an impact on their learning and future careers.

I am a very empathetic and understanding individual, with a positive outlook toward education, I value getting a solid level of knowledge and making the most of educational system, I am patient, firm and confident, punctual and precise always organized and in time with my deadlines, with a good level of patience and efficiency under pressure or work related stress. I have a high level of academic passion for learning, I write small pieces of research papers which regard mainly pupils with SEN and how we can improve their learning, I believe I have an academic approach and my mind is learning orientated at all times.

I have achieved a lot of educational experience, the opportunity to meet and impact students learning, I have gained a better understanding of the British curriculum and educational system, I have created a larger and better social environment as well as I have shared and gained knowledge through my work colleagues and students. I have developed my communication levels, social interaction and positive outlooks.
At the moment I support year 10 students in their lessons, I organize one to one tutoring sessions, I advice them on their learning and promote discipline, excellent vocabulary and social interaction with their peers.

I would love that in future to work within a school as a teacher of either primary or subject teacher in a secondary school, my main goal is to work and teach young minds, inspire them and help them achieve a better improved career.

Teaching Experience:

I have been home teaching for a few years now, started sept 2010 up to present, alongside day employment and working in schools I have always carried on home teaching and mentoring and tutoring in both psychology and sociology.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very open minded and flexible, always considering my tutees needs and investigating which methods of teaching work best for each individual to suit their personality and to help them achieve their best.
I am always punctual and very dedicated to helping people.

Personal Description:
I am currently enrolled in SOAS, University of London as a Masters student studying the Political Economy of Development. My primary research includes investigating the impacts of public policy on economic development. My academic training has led to strong interests in subjects including History, Politics, Economics, and English. I received my undergraduate degree in Politics and History from Brunel University and achieved a 2:1 overall.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over 3 years. For over a year and a half, I began my teaching career by leading group tutoring sessions at a local university in preparation for the English GCSE. This was enlightening for me as a teacher, particularly when hearing and critiquing student's opinions or arguments on works of literature. In line with these teaching experiences, I have gained a certificate for community teaching (CLEI). As of this year, whilst attending University for my masters, I have been tutoring students part-time in subjects that include English, Politics and History.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe having a personable demeanor and having fun interactive and engaging lessons are the best approach to learning. I am also a strong proponent of encouraging my students to always reach their highest potential and to give their best effort to the course material. I also believe in learning as a collaborative process between the tutor and student, highlighted by discovery and insight.

So, I know the subject's concepts, ideas and problems inside out. I can discuss and introduce the rigor of real-life applications. I can make learning relevant to students' interests, thus create more students who actually care about what they are learning

Teaching Experience:

I have got a 10 years of teaching Experience. I have been teaching maths since at all Level since 10 years. Currently i have been teaching A-Level, year 4, KS-2 maths in UK.
I am very much aware of National Curriculum of UK and know about the key stages and the assessments, the student would go through after completing each key stage. I always prefer to discuss child's progress with his/her parents by the end of each assessment. That would assist me to meet the expectations of parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to build strong, personal relationships with students, because I believe personal relationship is foundation to student success. The more associated the student feels, the more teacher earns respect and consideration, the key ingredients for students to learn well. I teach to the student's strength that helps me to minimize the student weaknesses. I always listen and communicate early and often with parents, that helps me to map a better plan for success.
I always believe that, the better lesson planning by tutor leads to student success. I always plan my every session keeping these 6 points in my mind.
1. Outline learning objectives
2. Develop the introduction
3. Plan the specific learning activities (the main body of the lesson)
4. Plan to check for understanding
5. Develop a conclusion
6. Create a practical timeline
