Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a French native living in the UK since 2011. I am enjoying my new life in London.

Currently workin as a Care Assistant in a nursing home, I am also studying to get a teaching qualification. I have been doing one-to-one tuition for a few years now.

My students usually describe me as friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and dedicated (based on students' satisfaction survey carried out by the school)

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor in French since 2012.

I have worked with people of all ages and abilities from primary school children to adult learners.

I have helped many young people improve their level in French and achieve great results for their GCSE'S and A Level's.

I also taught evening classes with a private Language School for one year in 2012 and have gained an amazing experience in teaching. I am really enjoying sharing my knowledge and seeing my students improving, asking useful questions, and having fun after all, speaking a new language as if they had always known it.

Tutoring Approach:

Different abilities and learning difficulties are all taken into consideration to give each student a personalised work plan to meet their needs and expectations in an approach that is non judgmental.

Students are not been made to "feel stupid" about their mistakes but encouraged to learn from them.

The advantages of one-to-one tuition :

-Work on a specific skill (eg. Speaking, listening, writing or grammar)
-Learn from scratch at your own pace
-Boost your confidence (eg. You may be shy to speak in your classroom, or maybe you learned French at school years ago and need some extra help before a trip to France)
-Help your child to learn faster at school in early years.

Regular practice and commitment are strongly advised for best learning results.

NB : I travel to the tutee for free up to 7 miles radius, an additional fee may be required for longer travel distance.

Subjects
  • French
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Becky and I am an experienced Primary School Teacher. I specialise in preparing students for both the 11+ entrance exams, helping children prepare for SAT's, and also give booster sessions for children who need extra support at any age during their primary years. I have experience working across the age range and am a confident, knowledgeable practitioner. I aim to provide individually tailored lessons that will help your child achieve their very best potential.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher with a 'first' class honours degree in Primary Education (BEd) as a mature student. I have since then been a subject coordinator for Gifted and Talented children, Art and Children in Care. I have taken every opportunity to keep myself up to date and enhance my subject knowledge of the Primary Curriculum, with regular and current training. I have two children who have both been successful in gaining places at Grammar Schools by taking and passing the 11+. I look forward to helping many more students achieve the same exam success.

Tutoring Approach:

For 11+ tutoring

I teach collaboratively with Chris, who is also listed on UK Tutors. We teach in a purpose built classroom, with access to an interactive whiteboard and other teaching tools. We jointly teach small groups with class sizes limited to a maximum of ten students. Students in a small group support each other and work together with a shared purpose and confidence. Having both an experienced Primary teacher, and an experienced Secondary teacher, will give your child a unique and highly effective session.

Chris is a knowledgeable Secondary School Teacher who specialised in Chemistry. He has had a successful career in both Independent Schools and Mainstream and was Head of Chemistry at Plymstock School for 10 years. He has now built on his success and become a, much sought after, self employed Professional Tutor. He not only is an academic tutor, but also is a Professional Drummer and offers drumming lessons in his purpose built studio. Chris has a fully enhanced CRB.

Weekly 60 minute sessions at 20, run from September until the end December. These are followed by 75 minute sessions, at 22.50 which run from January to the September exams. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

For SATs preparation and Booster sessions

I work with either small groups of children within the same year group, or with individual students. i can help your child with any aspect of the Primary Curriculum and also help guide and support you to help your child achieve their best. I am highly competent and trained in helping children with special educational needs.

Weekly 60 minute sessions in a group cost 20.00. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

Personal Description:
I am a Masters Student studying Oil and Gas Engineering in the University of Aberdeen, UK. I was the best Mathematics student during my Primary and Secondary School education (in virtually every class), so i was among the students selected from the mathematics club to represent the school in various Mathematics competitions, of which i won some prizes. I am a calm individual who understands that everyone is unique with different speed of comprehension. I enjoy teaching Mathematics to all levels, especially the young minds because I believe practicing, solving and understanding mathematics sharpens the brain in understanding and quickly solving other problems in life as they grow. I have over two years of experience; a year in teaching secondary school students in both a government and private school, and over a year experience in teaching a few 1st year undergraduate students. I also believe that mathematics can be understood by everyone, once placed in the right environment (quiet, fun, musical,etc) . My first task would be to find out which suits the student best.

Teaching Experience:

1) Over 1 year tutoring a few 1st year Undergraduate students
2) 1 year full-time teacher in both a private and a government secondary school

Tutoring Approach:

My initial approach would be; identifying the best environment (quiet, fun,etc) suitable for the particular individual, then comprehending the individual's speed or rate of understanding. I will pick up from this point and build up the individual's confidence by explaining the basics of approaching each question while solving as many questions as possible. In this way, the student would be able to tackle or attempt similar questions at his/her level.

Personal Description:
I was born in Xi'an China, where the Terracotta Army were found also a birth place of Chinese history and culture. I graduated from a Chinese University with BA degree in English. I studied Chinese language and culture all the through my school life. I have worked as a tour guide, part-time teacher and a business man in China.

I moved to UK in 2001 and settled here with my family. In order to continue my enthusiasm for teaching Chinese in the UK, I have attended the prepare to teach course in a local collage to learn about the different theory and approach of teaching in the UK, which has helped me greatly.

I like history and culture and I love teaching people Chinese language and culture.

Teaching Experience:

Part time teaching in state school in China
Private tutoring since 2005 in the UK
the main teacher for our local Chinese community Chinese learning class which is held every Saturday in a local council library and it has been running for 3 years.
City and Guilds Certificate of Level 4 Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) from Stafford College.

My previous and ongoing clients include Crossbow Education Ltd, Aldi Superstore, Orangetek Ltd, plus many individuals from Burton on Trent, Wolverhampton, Stoke on Trent, Stafford and surrounding areas.

Tutoring Approach:

I understood that a native speaker of one language is not automatically a language tutor, especially when teaching someone with totally different language and culture background.
I understood that younger people and the wiser people would like different approaches of learning.
I understood different learners have different motivation and target of learning, either business or leisure.
I provide one to one teaching or in a group, I use self designed learning materials to make your learning more personal and fun.
Homework will be given each time, as commitment and disciplines are fundamentally important.

I have an enthusiastic approach to teaching as I feel the best way to teach is to adapt to the students' needs and skills and whenever possible will adjust my resources to better suit the pace of the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching 1-2-1 since 2006 mostly in languages (Portuguese and EFL) but also Social Sciences, as I have a Master degree in Psychology. When relocating to the UK I completed a level 5 course on TEFL as well as other training courses to better equip me to provide better academic support to students from GCSE to University level. I also have experience teaching groups up to 15 students and regularly promote courses run by my local council to adult learners.

Personal Description:
I hold a BSc (Hons) Mathematics, 1st class from the University of Manchester as well as an MA Music, Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music.

I grew up in Watford, studying at Watford Grammar School for Boys. I achieved 4 A Levels grade A including Maths and Further Maths, 1 AS Level grade A, and 11 GCSEs, 9 grade A* and 2 grade A.

I am a mathematics tutor and freelance classical musician (viola), with my work featuring performance with top UK orchestras, chamber music and outreach work as well as a teaching portfolio working with children and adults.

In my spare time, I enjoy astronomy, cycling and playing the euphonium with the Army Reserve Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently relocated to Liverpool and am looking to build up a tutoring profile here. In previous academic years I have had the following distribution of students:

2015-16: 7 A Level, 5 GCSE
2014-15: 3 A Level, 5 GCSE

All of my students have achieved over and above their expected grades.

In addition, I teach the violin and viola to children and adults, from beginner to diploma level. I should clarify that I don't teach academic music, rather am happy teaching instrumental music to the age groups listed. I am able to combine mathematics tuition and music teaching for individuals who would be interested.

Tutoring Approach:

For those studying A Level and GCSE Mathematics, it is very important to be able to identify areas which require work and bring these to the attention of a tutor; my approach to mathematics tutoring is a student lead approach. I also like to instigate discussions about general study and revision technique which can be transferred to other subjects as well. Given the appropriate contact time with me, students are always prepared for exams well in advance.

I offer an introductory session at no fee. This is for myself, the student and parent(s) to get to know each other, and also to discuss where the student would like help.

My music teaching approach is focused on general musicianship and encouraging the enjoyment of playing. I do work on grades with my students but prefer to allow them to develop to a point that I know they will be able to pass their exams easily. Many students who are taught with too much of a focus on grades give up and stop playing altogether, and this is the reason for my approach.

Personal Description:
I'm currently in my first year studying Engineering at Durham university. Outside of my academic studies i am a very keen runner, training up to 6 times a week. I generally enjoy sport and am always willing to try something new, so therefore end up trying out a whole range at University.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped younger children at my secondary school to improve their maths skills, through weekly sessions. My main experience is explaining topics to my fellow classmates at GCSE and A-level to help them on parts they are unsure of.

Tutoring Approach:

Im always wanting help other people to improve there knowledge in whatever way I can, this translates through my teaching style using techniques I found useful when being taught to teach others. Patience for me is key and I find it the best way to explain a topic.

Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching maths and physics and I have had previous experience of teaching maths for a tutoring organisation. I am an 18 year old student in my final year of school (RGS Newcastle), currently studying towards 4 A levels in Physics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Economics. This combination of mathematical subjects has enabled me to develop a solid foundation of mathematics, as well as physics, which I am able to trickle down to the students I teach. However primarily I really enjoy tutoring as it provides me with an opportunity to interact and support young persons of varying ages, from primary all the way up to A level. It is fascinating to watch and support them as they develop and to push them to reach their true potential whilst refining my own skills.

Aside from teaching Mathematics and Physics, I would also be able to provide some advice about applying to universities for Economics/Maths-related courses as studying at the London School of Economics is my chosen career path for the future, and I went through the application process last year so it is very familiar. I would also be open to helping with personal statement writing and structure as part of the application process.

Please text me to get in touch.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a class assistant for Kumon Educational UK tutoring organisation for the past 2 years which has provided me with experience in teaching children of all ages, ranging from 6 to 17 years of age. Through this experience, I have taught children first-hand and this has strongly facilitated my role as a tutor.

I have completed a Sports Leadership qualification, in which I taught children basic sports skills and learnt how to communicate and cooperate with children of different ages.

I have had experience as a Lance Corporal for the NRGS Combined Cadet Force, in which I taught lessons to juniors in military craft as well as leading juniors in military exercises.

I am a 1st degree Blackbelt Instructor for the Newcastle Blackbelt Academy and through this role I have developed a high degree of focus and discipline. I have had experience in teaching junior students as well as leading classes of people of all belt degrees, adults and children.

Tutoring Approach:

Particularly in the case of tutoring children, I have had a lot of previous experience. I am able to cater to the needs of all kinds of children and have developed a knowledge of where children are likely to make errors and how to teach both simple and complex ideas in a palpable manner so that they are able to understand and progress with their learning. I look to target specific areas in which there are strengths and weaknesses and try to iron out any difficulties, one by one, before progressing onto the next idea.

Conceptually, I would like to create a strong foundation and try to perfect their knowledge of the basics before applying it to further concepts and doing it in this way allows future, more difficult problems to fall apart and be solved more easily.

I would like student to bring their own materials, books, textbooks etc relevant to their course or stage of learning and once the individual needs of the student, relative strengths and weaknesses, exam boards have been discussed, we can develop a plan. I am also able to offer additional material such as worksheets or practice questions if required.

Available on Monday, Wednesday and Sunday (Evenings).
