Personal Description:
I am a Master's student from Sheffield University. I completed my MSc (Research) in 2004 and have been in the Building Services Industry as a consulting engineer for the past 11 years. I have undergone a CRB check as part of my professional work.

I have always loved to teach, I used to teach undergraduates while I was at University. I like to be a tutor as it helps empowering people and enlightening lives. I shall try to make learning core concepts as easy as possible in order to make learning a highly enjoyable experience.

I have more than a thousand E-Books covering all aspects of Engineering, Maths, Mechanics, Engineering Thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, CFD, Strength of Materials, Heat Transfer in short all Engineering Sciences, I shall provide relevant E-Books to my Tutees for free to help them learn the core fundamentals and also to enable them to do further examples and case studies to reinforce the learning process.

I have got very good feedback and reviews from past students who have passed their exams with good marks.


Awards:
Won the Outstanding Contribution to Sustainability in the Industry (2007)

Teaching Experience:

I have been involved in teaching ever since I was at University to my fellow juniors and here in the UK, I have always loved teaching as a hobby, as it a powerful tool for empowerment.

I have sucessfully taught Engineering Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics to 2nd and 3rd year Engineering students. I have assisted 2 students projects in CFD analysis and Gas Turbines till date. My teaching style involves concentrating on the core concepts in the derivations rather than concentrating on the Maths and then scaling upwards to enable the student to appreciate the Physics and the Maths involved.

However, please note that these subjects are not currently covered under UK Tutors list, these are specialist subjects for which I charge a higher fee depending upon the complexity of the subject as it requires me to do a bit of preparatory study to teach these subjects. I shall advise you of my fee for these subjects after interacting with the pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make core concepts in Physics and Maths as easy to enable the pupil to understand the concept. Once the foundation is laid properly, additional information can be added to complete the overall structure.
Chemistry involves a bit of rote learning but again core concepts if clear make learning chemistry enjoyable with loads of FUN !!!

I am also looking at online coaching for those candidates who have to travel too far (excess of 20 miles), this is brilliant as it can achieve the same result without the hassle of travelling by using a combination of skype / video conferencing and team viewer. The pupil would need these free to download softwares and off we go !. If the tutee is nearby (1-2 miles) I don't mind driving to teach. We can always work out something optimal between us.

Personal Description:
My name is Lenka and I am an experienced and qualified language teacher. I am passionate about languages and I love teaching. I have traveled a lot and lived in different countries. I studied Spanish and French literature at an Italian university and lived in Spain where I studied Spanish language, culture and journalism. I qualified as a secondary language teacher at Lancaster University and worked as a teacher in the independent sector for 7 years. I am a native Czech speaker. I am currently working as a freelance tutor for a language agency as well as teaching private students. At the moment I am available during the weekends and Monday and Friday afternoons. I tutor in Seaford and surrounding areas.

Teaching Experience:

tutor in a language school teaching all year groups and individuals
teacher in two comprehensive schools teaching KS3, KS4 and Sixth Form
language teacher in an independent boarding school (13-18) teaching Spanish, French and Italian at GCSE and A-level
tutor in adult education
vast experience with private language tutoring

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching philosophy is that a thorough knowledge of grammar as well as the ability to communicate is essential for learning a language successfully. I advocate a communicative approach and I teach in a relaxing atmosphere so that my students feel at ease and not afraid of communicating in a foreign language and at the same time they can learn by assessing their own mistakes.

Personal Description:
I am in my fifth year of teaching. At the present time I am teaching sixth form college. I have successfully completed my PGCE course (Secondary Mathematics) at Canterbury Christ Church University in 2011. Prior to this, I hold a combined degree in Pure Mathematics and Statistics. I have also been on a number of courses covering behaviour management, AFL, pace in teaching/learning and differentiation.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experiences began at Woodlands School and Seven Kings High School, as part of my PGCE training and I had the opportunity to teach across the full ability range of year 7 to 11. I also fully participated in helping pupils in the Statistics and pure Mathematics AS Level classes. I finished my most recently teaching practice at Woodlands School where I taught maths across range and the use of ICT interactive board for maths lessons. My teaching practice was encouraging because I enjoyed interacting with students at various levels. During my teaching practice, I planned my lessons to very good standard and appropriate and challenging learning objectives which include a variety of activities and assessment techniques. I have gained a lot of experience from especially the one to one and that modified my teaching of low ability classes, concentrating on breaking tasks and making lessons interesting enough to lengthen student's concentration.
In my most recently employment as a Maths teacher at Woodlands School, Basildon, I have been mostly entrusted with foundation GCSE classes, KS3 mixed ability sets and numeracy classes.

Tutoring Approach:

Having had the opportunity to teach across board for this while had provided me with a wide knowledge base for my professional conduct as a teacher. I constantly upgrade my teaching methods through evaluations and feedbacks I get from pupils and sometimes through learning walks by SLTs. I am confident I have acquired a lot strategies and methodologies for teaching all topics to all years and sets. I thoroughly prepared each lesson taking into consideration previous knowledge and suitability of the time it's taught. I recorded all homework and some important class exercise which are used to monitor children's progress and to find ways of how to address any inconsistencies. I have often liaised with parents if I needed parental support. For bottom sets, I learned the importance of the use of pictures and visual stimulus to meet pupils' learning needs. I have mastered the art of breaking up lessons into chunks to make it simpler for pupils to follow and finding straight steps pupils can easily grasp with complex topics. This has been one of my enviable achievements as it has always interested my maths colleagues. Concerning year sevens and lower forms, I learnt a lot about the importance of giving rewards in the form of stamps, commendations and stickers as motivation. Every learning has been thoroughly planned using Maths Framework Standards with levels and differentiation. For bottom sets working in partnership with support staff for SEN and EAL pupils has been very enjoyable and rewarding.
The opportunity to be a year 10 and during my last term a year 7 form tutor as well as the homework club tutor at Woodlands School had also given me a strong knowledge base on the pastoral care of students and participations in extracurricular duties.
Commitment
I am committed to developing my professional skills in all aspects of the art of teaching. I look upon my students not merely as students in the strict sense of the word, but also as an extension of myself. I want them to succeed, because when they do I also succeed.

Personal Description:
I have spent many years accumulating a wide range of academic qualifications, and my work has often primarily consisted of passing on my knowledge to others in a form they can understand. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people to understand something they thought was beyond them. By virtue of having studied several subjects at a high level, I empathise with the feeling of finding something difficult, and have the patience and technique to get past this. I am not a single-subject specialist who might find it difficult to understand why others struggle in their area of expertise.
For students who are preparing for exams, my knowledge of examination technique, and an empathy with the marker, should be invaluable. I always keep in mind the importance of the student's goals, but never take myself too seriously.

Teaching Experience:

My whole career has been geared towards some form of teaching. I have trained groups of adults and children, as well as individuals, in elements of mathematics, psychology, actuarial science, pensions, and even tennis! Recently I tutored my 14 year-old son (who attends a sports academy, not a mainstream school) in three IGCSEs, for which he obtained excellent grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I look at what is important for the student. I emphasise clear, logical ways of working, and clear presentation. I make sure that they realise that they not only need to understand why they are doing something, but they must also be able to explain it clearly. Explaining a difficult concept to someone else can often be the best way to make yourself remember it. I am calm and patient, and English is my first language, all of which can help when a student finds something tricky.

I am consistently available for tutoring during weekday daytimes. I will sometimes be available in the evenings and at weekends, but this will be by arrangement and should not be relied upon.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and devoted Foreign Language Teacher. I've been teaching Italian in London since 2010. I am well trained, confident and well-resourced.
I am enjoying teaching as I have great opportunities to meet and interact with a wide range of people of all abilities, from all over the world, who have so much to teach me!!
To be part of their learning experience and helping them to make good progress is absolutely rewarding.
I am very dedicated to my job and to offering the highest quality in Italian language teaching.
Every single student is unique to me, consequently, my courses are designed to suit their specific needs. I teach a wide range of courses,from beginners to proficiency and find all of them satisfying in their own way.
My every day goal is to provide the best service, encouraging creativity and creating a very happy atmosphere.
Students always put a smile on my face; it's so nice to see their communicative competence develop and to be a facilitator of this.

Teaching Experience:

"Self employed": Teaching one-to-one individual adults
"Italian teacher" at International House (London)
"Modiano" (London), Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language
"Royal Opera House" (London) Italian Teacher

Tutoring Approach:

Example of a course for beginners:
The course is designed to give students a basic knowledge of the Italian language. By the end of the course students will be familiar with the basic structure of the Italian language and have a sufficient vocabulary that will allow them to communicate with native speakers in most everyday situations. The language will be taught in the context of the social, cultural and historical aspects of Italy. A variety of activities will be used, including role-plays, watching films, listening to CDs, grammar exercises and group work. The course will be based on communicative and direct methods and active participation will be strongly encouraged. There will be regular homeworks to consolidate what has been learnt in class and to assess the students' progress.

Personal Description:
I am a published academic author with thirteen years' experience of teaching university students at different levels, including those undertaking foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I also have extensive experience of teaching via distance learning (by both telephone and online). I have a BA hons in Social Policy and Administration, an MA in Social Research and a PhD in Social Policy. I have significant experience of conducting academic research, writing and editing publications and proof-reading a wide variety of different sources.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a lecturer, online tutor and researcher, teaching, supporting, and marking the work of undergraduates and postgraduates. I have taught in - and developed teaching materials for - a variety of subjects within the fields of sociology and social policy. These have included general sociology and social policy modules, current debates in welfare, crime, housing, disability and study skills modules. I have also taught MA Disability Studies for eight years and I have supervised both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations in various subjects. I have been a private tutor for four years, and have successfully supported students in developing their assignments and dissertations for Sociology, Business Studies, Education and Social Policy degrees, as well as students working towards MAs and PhDs in various fields.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is supportive, friendly, practical and student-centred. I have taught in a variety of styles and formats to suit the varying needs of students from different backgrounds, cultures and with different access requirements. I therefore understand the need to be flexible, to tailor teaching styles and methods to each student and to allow students to identify the most appropriate approaches to learning for them. I have found that this approach to learning has not only helped my previous students to build confidence in their skills and knowledge, but it has also led to greater success in their academic achievements.

Personal Description:
- I am a fifth year student studying Medicine in London. I have completed 4 years clinical training and basic sciences, and I am currently undertaking an intercalated BSc before my final year. I have a passion for Biology and German, and I try to use both in my every day life as a medical student!

- My A levels were in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and German.
- I received all my secondary education at Dr Challoner's High school for girls in Little Chalfont.
- I am friendly, open and approachable, and as a young female, many students (particularly school age girls) find the lessons with me comfortable and fun.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 3 years, and really enjoy teaching. I teach younger years at medical school, as well as school students, especially in German and Biology. I like to focus on areas that the student finds hard, and work in a way that they understand and enjoy - for me, learning is all about having fun and loving your subject, which comes with a bit of effort over a period of time. I think that every student can learn to enjoy their subjects, and I hope I can be the one to inspire them.

Tutoring Approach:

I individualise my approach to tutoring taking into account the student's learning needs and objectives. I really enjoy teaching and I hope to help students achieve their potential.

I usually obtain practise questions and notes before the lesson to ensure the tutoring time is spent as productively as possible, depending on what topic the student suggests in the previous lessons.

I have slots available on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - daytime and evening. Please contact me if you would like to organise a suitable time and place. Thank you.

Personal Description:
Cambridge graduate with over 150 hours tutoring experience

Teaching Experience:

Since graduating from the University of Cambridge in 2014 with a BA in English, I have accrued over 150 hours of tutoring. I have taught students from ages 11 to 18.

I have previously tutored for 13+, scholarship, GCSE, AS, A-Level and University. In recent months, I have helped my students to achieve:
A* at GCSE (up from a B)
A at A-Level (up from a C)
A at AS Level, coursework (up from a C)

I have also assisted students applying to Oxbridge - helping with interview technique, which subjects to choose at A-Level and general tips for success. My most recent tutee for Oxbridge assistance has just started her first year at the University of Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

My tailored approach to the needs of each individual tutee enables me to provide a high level of support. It is important to me to teach in a way that engages students; encouraging their strengths by discovering what interests and excites them, and giving them the confidence to work on their weaknesses. I have a natural enthusiasm for the subjects I teach, and believe that learning should never be dull or prescriptive!

I would love to hear from you, so please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Personal Description:
Associate Chartered Accountant with the ICAEW and first class mathematics graduate from the University of Warwick. Have enjoyed studying mathematics and finance academically and for pleasure for over a decade, including helping others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for the subjects along the way. I'm also a proud educational volunteer as a Non-Executive Director and School Governor of a Secondary Academy. Mathematics and education aside, I'm a book lover, piano player and keen (but not quite pro) skier.

Teaching Experience:

Non-Executive Director and School Governor of a Secondary Academy, serving on the Finance and Teaching/Learning committees and as a Governor in charge of the Mathematics department. I've also helped others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for mathematics for over a decade.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to prepare and inspire each student to want to understand the questions and to ultimately explain the answers to me. I constantly ask questions that encourage them to strip each question back to its mathematical basics, enabling them to build upon their knowledge to reach the answer, having fully understood how they arrived at it. Studying mathematics (and finance) for over a decade, and helping others to excel in the subject along the way, has taught me that confidence and enjoyment are key; and confidence and enjoyment are exactly what I instill in each of my students.

All of my students have developed their skills, improved coursework and essays and become more prepared for exams. My students' feedback so far has commended my 'professionable', 'knowledgable' and 'patient' nature. Specifically, I have developed analytic poetry and prose skills, helped translate texts from foreign languages into English, taught effective English revision tactics, improved and edited coursework, and proof read my student's work.

In 2015 I tutored a sixth form student in AS English Language for 3 months, practising exam papers once a week. The student went on to achieve a grade B, an improvement on the mock exam.

In the summer term, 2015, I completed a 6 week placement at Ernesford Grange Community Academy as a Teaching Assistant. I passed a CRB check to undertake this voluntary work. I helped Year 10 students develop their GCSE coursework and worked on improving spelling and grammar with small groups of Year 8 students.

Tutoring Approach:

Tailored to the aims of the student (e.g achieving an 'A*' grade) I will focus on exam paper practice, developing coursework skills and essay practice. By identifying the student's main weaknesses I will work on developing those skills, setting out objectives to achieve by the end of the hour and setting additional work if needed.

I will identify the student's main areas for development and improve these skills using various exercises and tactics. I really love books, and this enthusiasm makes my sessions effective and enjoyable!
