Personal Description:
I did my A levels in French, German, Psychology and English literature at a Grammar School.
I got a 2:1 in French and German studies at the University of Warwick, which also includes a lot of essay writing and analysis of books, These are skills needed for english too.

I have French family so I am almost fluent in French. I love tutoring and I'd be happy to help.

Qualifications: 13A/A* at GCSE. A* in French and German. A in English literature and Maths
AS level - A in French, German and Psychology. B in English literature

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored from year 7 to GCSE in maths, english, french and german to many students. I specialise in French and German and have tutored more in these two subjects but I also offer English and Maths tuition.

For example, I have tutored a boy in Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning for the 11+ for two hours a week for a year. He then passed the 11+ and got into a Grammar School.

I was a german prefect at my school, and part of this involves mentoring GCSE students who are behind in german

I have helped children abroad to learn English in a primary school, both in France and Germany for a month.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and I engage with the student so that the lesson is both fun and effective.

Personal Description:
Following education at an ordinary comprehensive school, I graduated with a first-class masters degree from Magdalen College, Oxford. I was awarded a scholarship as an undergraduate for attaining excellent exam results. At school, I achieved the highest possible grade in all subjects I teach, including:

- Straight A's in Maths, Further Maths and Physics at A-Level
- A in Chemistry at AS-Level
- A*'s in all subjects I tutor at GCSE-Level

I now have over 3 years experience as a part-time academic tutor with fantastic results (see testimonials).
Outside of tutoring, I have a great passion for cars: I built a classic Fiat 500 and a kitcar (which I still use today!). In 2011, I spent a summer working for the McLaren F1 team.

For your peace of mind, I have an Enhanced DBS check and am happy to bring along my certificate to our first meeting.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 3 years experience in tutoring maths and science at the following levels:

KS2: Maths (I am experienced in tutoring at this level and have written the class material for a well respected private company)
KS3: Maths/Science
GCSE: Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology
A-Level: Maths, Further Maths, Physics

Tutoring Approach:

There are two key aspects to achieving in academia: learning techniques to pass exams and having a genuine interest in the subject. I believe that I can help with both.

By ensuring that I am well prepared for each lesson, I aim to simplify parts of the syllabus that the student is finding difficult and if necessary, teach in a number of different ways to aid understanding. I can help produce a revision plan for those students who are taking exams to ensure that all the material is covered in time.

The subjects I teach are fascinating, they just need to be taught in the right way. The school curriculum can appear a little dull at times but I hope that with the experience I have gained in a number of interesting environments, including working with the McLaren F1 team and in running my own electronics business where maths and science were essential, I can bring subjects to life in a way that shows their real value.

One of the great joys of tutoring is that every student is different - I love tailoring my approach to get the best out of every tutee.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of the University of Liverpool and of the Open University, and in addition hold a Post Graduate Certificate of Education.

Although English is my principal focus, I have a wide range of interest, including among other things history, fell-walking, football, tennis and Latin.

Publications:
3 sets of GCSE materials
The Medieval Boy Bishops
Richard III: The King in the Car Park
The "Twins" series of children's novels
The "Kit" series of children's novels

I am happy to tutor in your home.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English and English Literature for over 25 years in both state and independent schools to a wide range of pupils, from the very high achieving to the less able.

At A level I have taught English Literature, English Language, and English Language/Literature.

I have been Head of English for 18 years in two schools (one of which has been one of most successful comprehensive schools in the country) for a number of years. My departments have always been the most successful or among the most successful departments.

My teaching career has involved teaching and tutoring pupils and students of all ages and abilities from year 3 to degree level.

Over a period of three years three of my pupils - from over 350,000 candidates in each year - were awarded the highest marks in the AQA GCSE English and Literature examinations, .

My department received an award for the highest performing A level girls nationally.

My GCSE results for have been consistently better than predictions by between a half a grade and a grade.

I have had similar success with A level.

My classes' National Curriculum levels are usually a level or more better than predictions.

I have successfully coached primary age pupils for entry to public schools and selective state schools, including Eton, Oundle, Magdalen College School, King`s Peterborough and Bourne Grammar. I have many years of tutoring experience.

Tutoring Approach:

Since every student is an individual with their own range of skills and knowledge, I tailor my teaching to their needs. Accordingly, I select from a range of traditional and more informal methods to suit the individual.

The following are some of the areas where different students often require help, although the list is by no means exhaustive:

At Key Stages 2 and 3:

spelling, punctuation, grammar
comprehension, including answering written questions
creativity, including writing descriptions, narratives and poetry
writing skills, including sustaining a coherent, interesting style.

At GCSE:

responding to more complex comprehension questions
writing detailed essays developing use of evidence and discussion
understanding and responding to set texts, including essay responses
techniques for oral work.

At A Level:

Understanding and responding to texts
Analysing spoken and written English
Writing polished, detailed, fluent essays

Working in Groups:

Although I usually work with individuals, it can be more cost-effective if you are able to put together two or more students to work side-by-side.

Subjects
  • Entrance Exams
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)
  • English

Personal Description:
As a British Chinese, I spent my childhood in China until I was 11 when my family moved to London. I found the pace of study of mathematics at my state school to be too slow for my curiosity. From the age of 12, I self-taught mathematics until university. During this period, I completed my GCSE maths with A* at the age of 12, A-level maths at 14 with a score of 599/600, A-level further maths at 16. For A-level studies, I completed 7 A-levels (Maths, Further Maths, Music, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Business Studies) and AS-level in ICT, all at my inner city state school. I went on to study Mathematics at Imperial College, graduated with first class honours and my final year exam results ranked first in my year - it is something I aim to teach my students.

I worked for a number of years for a finance firm in the City of London. At the same time, I have been tutoring since I was 18. My tutoring spread through recommendations, and I still have a number of long term tutees. I have always found tutoring to be most satisfying and fulfilling, especially when I witness students' progress from bafflement to appreciation, and eventually achieving their aspirations. Now I have decided to become a dedicated full time professional tutor, and has been doing so for last three years.

Teaching Experience:

I have done a great deal of one-to-one maths tuitions, more than 60 students over the last ten years and more than 5000 hours. Almost all the tuition is in mathematics, although sometimes I also help with sciences at the same time. Most of my previous students have been introduced to me by way of recommendation, a few found me from uktutors site, I have not had the need to advertise else where. I have tutored maths at GCSE, A-level, and also tutored Further Maths. All my students have done very well in their maths exams, so far all A's and A*'s, they have had offers and gone to top universities, including: Oxford, UCL, KCL, Warwick, Cardiff.

Past student / parents references are available upon request, in fact most of them would be happy to speak to you. And I will forward as many references as you reasonably require. I also have a long list of previous student highlights, too long to put here, but available upon request.

New from this academic year 2015, I also offer grade A guarantee for A level maths, with reimbursement if the guarantee is not met. I take pride and responsibility for my student's grades! Probably more than they do!

My teaching experience started from myself, as I self-taught maths until university. In order to master my subject by myself, I read many text books and assimilate the best ideas and methods of each. In the end, I summarized the best methods, which are often starkly intuitive and widely applicable. With these unique methods, a focus on deep intuitions and my own enthusiasm, the passion I have for maths is often transferred to my tutees. I am also of the philosophy that if a topic does not feel easy for a tutee, then that is my problem, not theirs. Then I would strive to find a better way to allow my tutees to understand the topic as I do, and feel as easy as I do.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is one of efficiency and clarity. Efficiency and clarity means that I will be able to cover a vast amount of material in a short period of time, while not sacrificing clarity and understanding for my pupils. Students are required to learn most of the methods available for any topic. Where possible, I will emphasize the why something works the way it does as well as how to use it. All these are to help pupils to develop a deep understanding and appreciation for the subject, as well as best equip them for exams. All these can still be achieved efficiently and at speed! My pupils are usually surprised at how much we can cover and how well they can understand something at such speed. The efficiency and clarity can be achieved because I make it my goal to deliver the clearest ideas to my students as efficiently as possible. This is what I spend time doing when I am not tutoring. Along the way my students will benefit from many new ways of thinking on many topics which are not found on text books or anywhere else, which give them an edge in exams. Final note, I usually cover everything, and in advance, which will allow the student to have school lessons as revision class.

In addition, when I take someone on, it is naturally my goal to help motivate them along the way. If a tutee isn't doing enough work, I will take an active role to encourage and motivate the student to work harder. To me it is all part of what I do, if the thing that is stopping a student achieving is their habits or time management, then I will help them deal with it too.

Finally, I place great importance in maintaining a positive relationship with the tutees. Before any tuition start, we would have an informal chat with parents and student to establish how the student would like me to help him or her. It is most important that the student understand that I am here to help them achieve their goals, not that of the parents goals. This will allow us to start from a good basis to form a positive relationship in order to help the student.

Final notes:
1) I am currently developing a video A-level course, which is the best version of myself in videos! Contact me if you wish to know more, rates are significantly reduced. Homework will still be marked by me, and follow on discussions are done through Skype. Contact me for more information.
2) Further Maths A2 modules are charged at 60 per hour - this website does not allow me to state it.
3) If it is required that I travel to you, this is charged at 40 per hour pro rata. (Not available this academic year, I am pretty full.)
4) There will be weekend availability from next academic year as things stand, contact me to place a deposit to take a time slot for next academic year.

Personal Description:
I am 29 years old and have been teaching A level and GCSE English and history at sixth form college for seven years, in which time my results have far surpassed national pass rates. Moreover, due to these outstanding pass rates and innovative teaching methods, my English department has been awarded a grade 1 'Outstanding' for the past 4 years. I have a passion for English and history, and take great pride in providing an excellent education to all of my students, seeing it as crucial to success in their later careers.

Teaching Experience:

I have a broad range of experience turning around failing classes, as well as challenging high achieving students. In my teaching career thus far I have taught a wide age range from 9-18 years, and specialise in teaching troubled students and those lacking confidence, as well as pushing very bright pupils. Since I began teaching at my institution, English pass-rates have received a 25% upwards leap in two years, so that the vast majority of my classes are now passing with high academic grades and attaining entry to prestigious preparatory schools and/or universities. With these excellent results I have now been made an advanced teaching practitioner, tasked with passing on my skills to other teachers and helping drive up standards

Tutoring Approach:

Besides enjoying superb results, my pupils benefit from a relaxed yet challenging atmosphere, with high commitment being expected of them and this has shown to bring both personal and academic growth, which is always pleasing to see. Moreover, in strengthening self-esteem and exciting the minds of my students, to provide them with the skills they need to excel in later life, I seek to provide them with only the finest education possible.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored young people in a project to do with music before.

Tutoring Approach:

I will first figure out what kind of learner my student is and build lessons around them. No person learns the same so that is the first and most important step. I will not allow my student to feel as if they are worthless and they will build confidence while learning the subject.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Sam. I am a 19 year old second year English student at UCL. I attended All Saints Blackheath primary school and Dartford Grammar School secondary school and sixth form. At Dartford I received a fantastic education allowing me to achieve 11 A*s and 1 A at GCSE, and 43/45 points in the IB (the equivalent of 4 A*s at A-Level). The IB required that I took 6 subjects - rather than 4 at A-Level - which was wonderful as I was allowed to keep my learning as broad as possible. I have a specialist knowledge of the IB and so offer tutoring all the subjects I studied at that level (including Classics which is not an option on this website).

During term time I live in Kings Cross, North London. I am happy to travel to surrounding boroughs. I am very flexible in regards to when the tutoring sessions would take place. During the summer, winter and easter breaks I live in Blackheath, South East London, but will still be able to travel to you.

Besides from my studies I enjoy a variety of sports (swimming, tennis, football), as well as writing, reading, acting, and politics. I also play lead guitar in a band with three close friends which gives me a great sense of creative fulfilment and joy.

Teaching Experience:

From October 2015 to May 2016 I taught a student GCSE English language through this website. English is not my student's first language so it was very important to create a comfortable atmosphere where he felt able to share his thoughts and ask questions. I witnessed an increased confidence in his grasp of the English language and in his personal interactions, helping the student achieve a C grade in both his written coursework and his speaking and listening. Before I began tutoring my student was on an E; he has now passed the course and will attend his college of choice.

From January to April 2016 I volunteered at a local comprehensive in Stoke Newington through Action Tutoring, teaching English Literature to a year 11 student bi-weekly. This presented a different challenge to my private tutee, with the student aiming to turn his grade from B to A. I helped hone his essay planning and structuring skills, and encouraged him not to be shy and express his creativity. I received a card of commendation from my coordinator who agreed that my student's writing had shown significant improvement.

During Sixth Form I was involved in a volunteering scheme called VSU with a local primary school in Dartford. This involved teaching children aged 8-10 certain sports and games as well as helping them with homework. Apart from being great fun this gave me good practice of communicating with younger age groups.

During sixth form I attended History Club, helping year 7s, 8s and 9s plan their research as well as sharing knowledge from my IB history course. Since leaving for university, Dartford Grammar have twice invited me back to advise current sixth formers on their university prospects and provide first-hand knowledge and experience of what to expect at university.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been incredibly lucky to have a series of hard-working, caring and genuinely inspiring teachers throughout my education. This has had a great influence on me, demonstrating how powerful a tool education can be. I have always wanted a job that in some way benefits society or helps others. This is why I am very enthusiastic to tutor.

My approach to tutoring is personal and dependent on what the student and student's parents are looking for. I am open to change and quick to adapt my style of teaching to the student's specific needs. If the student is preparing for an exam I will look at the components of the exam in specific detail. For example if tutoring GCSE English I would pay close attention to the assessed texts and poetry. If tutoring IB Latin I would prepare lessons on Latin language as well as analysing the themes and characterisation of set texts. As I have completed my GCSE and IB exams very recently, my knowledge of the courses is still fresh in my mind and I have a range of coursework, essays and notes to draw on. However although the final grade is important, I am very keen that the student enjoys learning. I am happy to look at external materials, in addition to the curriculum, that may be of interest to the student.

The lessons would be conversational and relaxed; I want the student to feel comfortable and happy. I am sympathetic and patient with people. I have worked very hard throughout my education and I would carry this work-ethic over into the preparation and organisation of the lessons.

Personal Description:
I am Dimitrios and I am a freelance musician/teacher/producer. My main musical discipline is drumming but I also play guitar and have basic knowledge of keyboards. I also possess a high level of musical theory and I am an intermediate percussion player.

I am 25 years old and I currently reside in South-West London. I am Greek but the last three years I've been living in UK.

I have studied in the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, graduating with a Bachelor Degree under the excellent guidance of Pete Riley (Guthrie Govan) and Frank Tontoh ( Amy Winehouse, George Michael). With them I have studied and played a wide variety of contemporary musical styles (funk, jazz, pop, hip-hop, r'n'b, rock, latin etc)

I am very approachable, friendly and open minded and I love to share my knowledge on music and everything else around this subject. I can also provide advise on career questions, hardware and general consultation.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience begins back in Greece where I used to help my private tutor ease his workload. I used to handle beginners and very young children. I have also spend a year on teaching before I moved in England to study as a mean of preparing my self for the path of the Freelance Musician I was aiming for.

During my days in ACM, I also used to help fellow students on lower levels of the school to better prepare for their Bachelor Course.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach depends largely on two factors. The age of my student and his experience.

I usually prefer to take my students back to the very basics. In case of drumming, I like to check their very body stance, their movement, the general understanding of time and rhythm and even their breathing while focusing on the instrument.

In general I tend to make everything sound fun and easy and approachable and I insist on connecting all the knowledge into practical concepts so the student can better understand what he is actually learning and why.

Overall, I focus on fun and relaxations but through discipline and organized learning and understanding.
