Personal Description:
Hello! I am 39 years old, originally from Denmark and moved to the UK 13 years ago for my degree. Before teaching, I worked as a monkey veterinary technician in the US, conducted my Masters research on crop-raiding macaques in Indonesia, and helped to run a volunteer expedition in the Amazon. After a couple of years of teaching in secondary school as a Science and Spanish teacher, I heard the call of the wild again and travelled for a year through Mexico and Central America. I have worked for an independent school in the Rochdale area for over 5 years and have gained experience tutoring a wide range of subjects and a wide range of ages.

I have an up to date enhanced CRB.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my teaching degree in 2007 at Canterbury Christ Church University. I trained in two very different types of schools, private Catholic school and selective high school, which gave me the experience to engage students of different abilities and backgrounds. I also received training to teach EAL and SEN students. My teaching qualification is in Science, but as a fluent Spanish linguist I have also taught Spanish to both adults and children in schools and private tuition. I teach Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics up to GCSE level. I can also teach English Key Stage 3.

Tutoring Approach:

Students, young and old, don't like subjects they don't think they can succeed in. My approach is to break down material, relate it to everyday life and interests, and positively reinforce all the way to build up confidence. I am stubborn (!) and I don't give up until it's mastered.

Personal Description:
I am a very experienced teacher, head of faculty, head of sixth form, examiner and writer. I have recently worked for one of the major examination boards on the new specifications for both G.C.S. E and A2 Level.

During my career as a teacher I have taught philosophy and religious studies to Advanced level and English, history, religious studies, geography and citizenship to G.C.S.E. I also specialise in developing study skills and examination techniques in a range of subjects. I have prepared VI form students for university and UCAS application, including Oxbridge, and acted as a mentor to new entrants to the teaching profession.

I am a freelance writer specialising in education, social, religious and moral issues and I also create e-learning resources for an international educational e-learning-platform provider.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience at both G.C.S.E. and Advanced level has been extensive. I am an examiner for two major exam boards and have diverse experience of creating original teaching resources tailored to the needs of pupils.

I have spent most of my career teaching across the ability and age range in 11-18 comprehensive schools although I have also taught in the independent sector.

I am also a part-time on-line tutor for one of the Oxford colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the key to success for most pupils is to develop their skills and self-confidence to enhance their ability to successfully complete their examination by developing study skills and examination techniques.

My first session with a tutee and their parents is to establish their needs and goals. Together we draw up a plan of the work which we will pursue. This plan will be reviewed regularly and a progress report compiled.
Each of the subsequent sessions comprises of:
review of any homework set
review of any problems which have occurred that week
lesson on a topic previously decided upon
My primary aim is to help my tutees overcome any difficulties which they are having with their work and to help them to achieve their goals both in the short-term and the long term. Secondly, I aim to give my tutees confidence in their own abilities and to help them develop their skills necessary to succeed in their examinations.
Relevant homework is set as a means of reinforcing the development of skills since assessment and feedback procedures largely rely on this.

  • Philosophy / Critical Thinking
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (22 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and inspiring Tutor who has supported students of all ages and abilities in achieving their maximum potential.

I am able to adapt my expertise to each student's needs thereby extending their confidence in their own abilities.

Teaching Experience:

My main subjects are English and Mathematics, as well as entrance test preparation subjects and Sociology.

I have a BA Hons Degree in Social Studies and a PGCE in Primary Education

I am a fully qualified and experienced Teacher and have supported a significant number of students from primary to undergraduate level.

By focussing on establishing a positive relationship with each student, my tutees either achieve or exceed their learning targets.

I am experienced at preparing students for exams, including SATs, GCSEs, IELTs and entrance tests as well as intensive short-term revision work to prepare students for a particular exam such as resits.

I have also supported many students whose second language is English, who may be seeking to improve their communication skills within their workplace or preparing for school exams, as well as successfully preparing many adult learners for the QTS skills tests in Literacy and Numeracy, along with IELTS and iGCSEs.

I also offer a proofreading service to under-graduate and post-graduate students who are studying a variety of subjects from Business Management to Chemistry.

Here are a few of the comments that have been made by some of my students:

After a short period of intensive GCSE Maths revision, Mr Brown commented, "Great tuition, made a big difference to my son's exam results."

Mr Jones, an adult learner, recently commented that, following a course of tuition in Literacy skills, he "now feels more confident in writing, spelling and grammar" and that "communication via email and telephone was excellent".

Mrs Barker has also recommended Tina, stating that "Tina has achieved excellent results for our daughter in GCSE English" and that she is "personable and has high integrity".

Mrs Smith claimed that her 7 year old son, Josh, "has gained in confidence and ability since receiving tuition. He has enjoyed his sessions and has felt more able to tackle challenging work."

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about both high quality teaching and learning and would describe myself as an enthusiastic, dedicated and professional Tutor who has enabled a significant number of students to achieve their maximum potential and boost their grades, often within weeks or a few months.

When working with a student, I believe it is important to provide a friendly and informal learning environment so that they can develop and learn at their own pace. While my approach is calm and encouraging, I also ensure that activities are stimulating and based on the student's age and abilities so they can enjoy and extend their learning and understanding at their own pace.

Personal Description:
I work with my students to increase their confidence and help them improve their communication skills, in speaking and writing.

I have an English Degree from Bristol University, and I speak fluent French. I have a Trinity TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification.

I have worked as a writer, journalist and editor in this country and abroad, for magazines, newspapers and the BBC World Service.
I have worked for the UN and the EU, as well as many private clients and international aid agencies.

I came to tutoring in Africa, where it was clear that my services and experience could be very useful to students at all levels: I have taught one to one and in small groups, privately and most recently for a comprehensive school in Surrey.

I have also edited an MA thesis in History of Art for the Courtauld and some theses for Sotheby's History of Art students (we normally do very well!).

I have an Assessor's and Verifier's Award for CITY and Guilds NVQ courses. I am also teaching English and other subjects in Prisons in London, Kent and Sussex.

I am a mother of two boys, both now at university. My husband works in conservation which is why the family has travelled extensively. We are now back in England for the foreseeable future.

Teaching Experience:

Private students (A level and GCSE) and also teach GCSE English on a 1:1 basis to the lower sets of students at Jubilee International High School in Surrey. They have all raised their grades significantly and are much more confident with their work.
EFL at Guildford College to young Spanish students - Summer 2013.
I speak fluent French; I was a governor at Cranbrook School in Kent, and stood in for a term for the French assistante when she had to go home early. My A level students did well, and two continued their classes with me privately.
Tutor at Make the Grade tuition in Tunbridge Wells and also at summer English revision courses at Tonbridge School.
I devised and delivered a course for women journalists in Sierra Leone and taught creative writing and English at Foura Bay University.
Creative writing privately to groups, and at the University of Kent. I have helped students with presentation and interview skills, their CVs and Drama and Performing Arts GCSE.
Assessed NVQ Level 2 students in Customer Service with a 100% pass record.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand communication at all levels - verbal, written and on the web - and I am passionate about making people understand each other. I care very much about the basics - grammar, punctuation, spelling, and I have devised effective study skills tools which make a real difference.

My sessions are fun and inspiring. I am patient, and approachable, and work hard with my pupils to help them reach their full potential. I cannot do magic, but even the least able have contacted me after their exams to tell me they felt more confident about them. Some even told me they enjoyed them!

Personal Description:
My name is Andrew and I currently live in Fleet, Hampshire. I studied Fine Art up until degree level which I accomplished a 1st class BA Hons Degree in Fine Art. I paint mostly portraiture in a hyper-realistic fashion however I have also experimented with many different and expressive styles of art work, as well as sole abstract work.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work for the Meath Epilepsy trust in Godalming where I teach as an observational and technical instructor for the mental health adult clients who live there. There I work closely with the students building up their personal portfolio in their art work consisting of painting, drawing, charcoal and pastel mark making equipment.

I also teach privately and run art workshops in my spare time in which I teach mature students art techniques in drawing and painting. My main qualities in teaching come from portraiture and painting with acrylic and oil paint.

Recently I have completed the PTLLS teaching training course and wish to continue my studies in teaching within the near future.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that teaching is about personal connection with your students and interacting with them on their level rather than simply 'getting the job done'. I can teach someone how to do something and for them to copy my influence is something however to teach someone to do it well themselves without my aid takes time to practice over and over certain techniques and my advice. I think a student should be taught from the ground upwards and by neglecting bad influences from the past the student can become highly skilled and more importantly 'satisfied' with their work and practice.
I teach my students by constantly reminding them of basic principles of drawing/painting techniques and methods for which the student automatically revises their own work and own mistakes alone.

  • Art
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (30 p.h.)

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring A level Physics
During my research I worked as a Private A level tutor for the children of a number of overseas Professors - teaching A level Physics and (through one of those students) was invited to teach Physics to A level students at a Ladies Grammar school in Manchester when their teacher became ill. I also taught A level Physics at the Trafford Park College of Further Education in Stretford, Manchester for 2 years

Tutoring Approach:

One to One - focussing on parts of the curriculum where the student is having difficulty in understanding
Create a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. The student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves. One-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students' personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject.

Depending on the student's needs and learning style I encourage students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don't lecture to students or ask them to memorise things. Nor do I do the students' homework for them!

Personal Description:
Hi! I'm Lorna.



I teach English as a second language.



My initial training in this saw me complete a BA Hons. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) & Linguistics at the University of Wolverhampton. I then went on to complete a CELTA or certificate in English language teaching, with Cambridge in Mallorjca.



After teaching English for a couple of years in the South of Spain, I came back to the UK to complete my Masters in Linguistics at the Univeristy of York. I then went on to teach English for academic purposes at the University of Birmingham.



I have also taught online and managed summer courses in the UK.



My teaching is student-centred and communicative. I think that I'm a fun and friendly person and because of this my classes have a good atmosphere.



I can help you to improve your General English, guide you with secure English language tests, such as IELTS or Trinity ISE and GESE, or can help you with a specific skill or focus.



I look forward to seeing you soon!

Teaching Experience:

I have taught and managed on English as a second language courses abroad, in the UK and online. I currently have a number of private students in Wolverhampton and the Black Country who study with me for a number of reasons, including Trinity GESE B1 preparation, IELTS, help with general English, etc.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style in communicative and student centred. Lessons, courses and classes will always be planned and prepared specifically for my students.

Tutoring can take place in Wolverhampton or in the student's home or workplace.

Personal Description:
Im 18 Years old and have had over 11 years art experience, always drawing, being creative musically, achieiving an A* at art GCSE, scoring the highest possible mark out of the year. Whether your wanting to draw black and white (my forte), colouring, realism, to surrealism style, sketching, painting, inking, etc. I have done it all but as an artist you have to be quite versatile, and through this you'll find one style or way of drawing or expressing the you. As I have a passion for the Arts, I also took interest in Music Technology, which has allowed my visualistic skills to combine with audio and music. So I also teach music grades Abrsm (grade 3 below), and (drumming grades up to grade 5).

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience for arts comes from teaching friends for the past 2 years, helping with concepts and ideas, people doing GCSE's, A-level's, having many friends come to me for help and tips for A-level work. I have had enough experience to know what works and what doesn't, or is preferred. I hope to help you like I have with many of my friends and tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to learning will be asking you what you want /need to do, whether this is for GCSEs, A-level, or for other qualifications/hobbies. I will see what your strengths and weakness's are, and help you develop the areas your interested in. I will take a kind, but demanding approach so you get the best of out of each lesson/session. For qualifications I will help you also relate research ideas more methodically, and help you grow independently, and will promise to improve grades to high standard for your educational interests and reach qualification standards. I hope to help as much as possible. I will provide basic equipment, but you will need to bring own equipment, as you might have an idea what your more interested in more.

Personal Description:
I have recently moved to Scotland from London with my partner who has taken up a lecturing job at Gray's school of art. I have been looking for work to support my practise as an artist.I came to Art in my 30's as a mature student via short courses. This form of education is a great way of developing artists through a different route than more traditional means while opening up opportunities to a diverse field of practitioners. I feel very passionate about education and how it has transformed my own life which has given me fantastic opportunities that I could never have thought of.

My own work involves an idea of process and gesture through the daily practise of being an artist.
I paint tools that I have used in my job as a gardener which has funded my practise. I paint these with either close observation or purely from memory. I continue this with large scale paper relief drawings which I have displayed in shop windows, mud walls in Morocco with chalk and charcoal, and more traditional gallery spaces. With these I explore the relationship between the hand and the eye, nature and culture, the raw and the cooked and how this dichotomy exists in the historical and contemporary art. For example I am interested in the Gesture of the hand in Velazquez, Titian and Tintoretto as apposed to established Renaissance painting which where drawn and then filled with colour. I see a mirror to this in more conceptual art such as Art and Language or Sol Le Witt compared to a gestural painters such as Philip Guston, Morandi or Joan Mitchell.

I am Recent graduate of the slade MFA program and I have been consistently exhibiting since such as the Creekside open selected by Richard Deacon/Lisa Milroy, the BFA futures, and currently at York College and the Zetta Hotel in Clarkenwell. I have also been establishing a drawing and painting workshop at Marymount International school and have given talks on my work and the benefits of doing an MA.

Teaching Experience:

Present- Gray's School of Art 'Foundation Portfolio Plus'.(Short Courses)

2016- Marymount International School, 'Drawing from a Personal Object' workshop, ongoing.
Working with a class of 25 students i worked with an idea of using a personal object as a subject while exploring the idea of memory and observation with gesture of the hand.

2015- Kingston University, MA presentation
Before a class of third year degree students I gave a presentation of my work which, explained how doing an MA had influenced and changed my work. I also focussed the talk on application and interview techniques and guides.

Awards
2015 The Desiree Prize for Painting
2015 Nominated for the Land Securities Studio Award
2015 The Bergman Residency, Taroudant, Morocco
2012 The AP Fitzpatrick Prize for Painting

Tutoring Approach:

Extensive knowledge of grounds, substrates and supports.
Working with clay, wood and metal
Photography and documentation of work by with Photoshop and a DSLR
