Personal Description:
I'm a 46-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

Personal Description:
I have a lifetime of experience in fine art (drawing and painting) as well as in graphic design and photography.
I now practice as a professional artist/painter. I use several mediums, pencil, conte, pastel, watercolour, acrylic and (mostly) oil.
I live in the Surrey Hills and am inspired by the landscape. However I am interested in picture making at all levels in any subject, believing that the subject is merely a reference point to an idea.
Art is largely subjective but is, like music, expressive of emotion, thought, ideas, and self.
I am an award winning artist having won the ArTTable Bronze Frame for my still life in 2015/

Teaching Experience:

Adult Education at Ruxley Lane Centre, Epsom and at Reigate School of Art, Redhill.
Secondary Education at Carshalton High school for Girls.
University/Further Ed. at Hull, Norwich, Epsom, Falmouth, East Surrey College, Norwich and Croydon Colleges of Art.
I tutor as workshops individually in my Buckland studio, or individual tuition at the subjects' homes.
I also visit and tutor in art groups and clubs by request.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in clear demonstration of artistic principles and techniques and by guided practice by students. I am against the traditional style of art tutoring that simply allows the student to work with sometime critical comment 'over the shoulder'.
Art can be taught to a good technical level in the same way as any subject. Whilst everyone has natural ability to a degree, the student can learn to observe and record by training the eye and right brain. Many have no confidence in their ability. My aim is to give knowledge that inspires confidence so that a student may understand image making and learn to develop their own style through understanding of the principles of drawing, composition and creative expression.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Aberdeen and before that I got an MChem in Chemistry. I also have extensive knowledge of Biology until A Level and Physics until GCSE. I currently work for an educational publisher working on international education books up to A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor in the past and I have tutored primarily university students (4 years experience) but I do have experience in tutoring school level students in all three sciences. I have successfully tutored students to grade A standard at A Level and GCSE, with one student gaining an A*.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to work commitments I have been away from tutoring for a while (around 4 years) but it is something that I wish to get back into as I found it very rewarding. During a previous role I was selected as a mentor for new graduate trainees which ignited my desire to become a tutor again.

I tend to structure the sessions depending on the needs to the individual. I am happy to simply go over a topic or come up with sample tests - I am totally flexible and will aim to cater for your requirements.

Personal Description:
I am a private mathematics tutor with over 2 years experience working with tutees of ages from primary up to secondary and adult learners.

Additionally, I currently volunteer at Hackney Pirates, a charitable organisation developing the literacy, confidence and perseverance of young people in Hackney.

My academic background is in engineering, graduating with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the prestigious Imperial College London university. At A-level I achieved straight A's in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics averaging 98% in my Mathematics A-level.

Outside my work as a mathematics tutor I have a keen interest in cinema and am an amateur filmmaker and photographer.

Teaching Experience:

I am a mathematics tutor with extensive experience working with children of all ages within schools and in private one-on-one sessions.

I currently hold weekly sessions with three pupils between the ages of 10 and 15 years. My current pupils and those I have worked with in the past have always achieve their target grades, often scoring higher than expected.

A reference from a previous client:
"Hardy is very organised, efficient and committed to his job. He is responsible, loves Maths and has an excellent rapport with my daughter. In his approach to teaching Maths, Hardy is very thorough and precise. He will accommodate the lessons according to the needs of the pupil and his methods of teaching are very clear and easy to follow.

In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending Hardy as a Maths teacher." - Roberta, London (N16)

Tutoring Approach:

The main characteristic of my teaching style is my determination to see the pupil solve the problem themselves. I am very happy to explain the concept of the problem in several ways and using graphical help if necessary but will not disclose answers unless I feel it will aid in the learning process. In mathematics process is the key, as this will allow the pupil to apply the knowledge more capably when dealing with subsequent problems.

Personal Description:
I obtained First Class Honours for my LL.B (Hons) and have qualified as a barrister after completing the bar course (obtaining a Very Competent grade). I have recently completed an LL.M in International Law obtaining a Distinction overall and in each constituent element of the course. I am working as a tutor pending the start of the pupillage stage of my training in 2016.

I started my legal training as a mature student after many years in finance and have good, practical business experience.

I am able to tutor in most humanities subjects but in particular, History, English and Law. I have successfully tutored in the past both mature students and those for whom English is not their first language.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous career I was frequently responsible for the training and development of new school leavers.

As a mature student at university I mentored and helped my peers to understand the subjects being taught.

I have been tutoring for over a year with typically excellent results for my students.

I have tutored students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I am seeking to work as a tutor as I prefer the more intense and tailored approach which can be taken with individual students or small groups of students.

My approach is tailored to the individual student's needs. Whether the student is seeking support for short term projects or throughout the academic year I am able to quickly build a good working relationship which facilitates tutoring and enables the student to derive the best results from our sessions.

I believe in building a good, solid basis of knowledge and understanding on which the student can develop their own thoughts and theories enabling a full, in-depth understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
My name is Umayr. I teach Chemistry, Biology and Maths up to A-Level standard. I also teach GCSE Physics and English Language. In addition to this, I can also teach both numeracy and literacy at primary school level. I am married and I am possibly looking to do PGCE to go into teaching in a school/college later on. I have moved recently to Bradford from London and am new to the area. I have my own transport to travel to any potential tutees.

Teaching Experience:

I have around 10 months of self-employed tutoring experience. I did tutor a fellow class student in A-level maths for a short period of time to improve his understanding of maths, especially pure maths. I also taught chemistry to university students in a university in Poland and was able to help about 70% to 80% of the whole year of first year medical students pass this subject. I provided them out of hours classes to help with certain difficult provided and even provided my own version of written revision notes to help prepare for the exam.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to help the student understand the topic by giving examples and showing solutions with in-depth explanations in simple terms so that the student can understand. I even give the student example questions to try out to make sure they understand the methods or factual knowledge. I believe that a student can only be fully prepared for an exam by attempting past exam papers.

Personal Description:
As a child, I learned by being told, by beatings, shaming and a strict examination system. As you can imagine I didn't learn much that I could later apply to my academic life. As a result, I became an inveterate learner, always interested in learning the next thing. At one point, the drive to learn was because I didn't see myself as being good enough. Later on, that drive became an interest in discovering my own abilities as well as about helping others. I have now learned so much about how not to teach that I have gained good insight into how learning happens. I am keen to ensure all my learners learn how to learn and understand how to apply what they discover.

Teaching Experience:

My background is in teaching, training and facilitation. I have over 25 years experience of teaching in different forms having worked within primary, secondary and further education settings. I am an NVQ / TAQA assessor and trained and assessed Parenting Practitioners and other candidates up to Level 5 in Health & Social Care. I have specialist skills in Personal Effectiveness subjects such as Report Writing, Speed Reading, Presentation Skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Being a private tutor used to be the preserve of only those with the highest qualifications and the greatest experience. Now all that's changed.

However good a tutor is, the learner needs to be astute in order know if the tutor is a good match for her / him. Importantly, making the right choice can be complex.
Here are three tips to help you decide if I am or someone else is right for you. The following tips describe how I teach and how I will enable you to be an independent learner.

1. Look for a tutor who can teach you how to learn
Here's a funny thing… learners study a subject, sometimes for months and years and can come away with no long-term memory of the underpinning principles of the subject. As disturbing, they have no ongoing understanding of the subject. They are unable to apply what they tried to learn. This is easily resolved by clearing up past issues with learning. In Applied Scholastics it is now well known that if as a learner, you are helped to do so, you can learn any subject. This is central to how I teach.

2. Look for tutors who understand the main barriers to learning and can help you overcome them
There are three main barriers to study. They relate to confusion over an idea, missing out critical steps and having unclear ideas about the subject under study. Gaining a day to day facility with overcoming those barriers is key to effective and efficient study. I use these methods to help my own reading and study. I will introduce them to you so that you can use them too.

3. Look for tutors who can help you find the information you need so that you keep expanding your own understanding of the subject

Sometimes, a learner during a course of study will find that s/he wants to give up. Have you ever experienced this? Whenever that happens it is because there is something - an idea, a symbol, a form of punctuation, the use of a word, or something else - that you did not understand. Without the proper factual information on this and without the correct knowledge of why and how this happens, the learner will struggle. Without knowing what remedies to apply, the learner will give up.

When you study, you are investing time and energy. In this case, money too. If you want to discover more about how you learn, what your barriers to study are and how to understand more, you will benefit from being an independent learner. That will repay your investment.

Those three critical points should help you decide if I could be right for you. They briefly describe the way in which I would work with you and enable you to be an independent learner.

Personal Description:
Hello, learner! My name is Anastasia, I am a native Russian speaker, and I know what's going on in your head right now. You're thinking: I want to learn Russian, but how do I choose the right tutor? Do I even need one?
As a language teacher with 4 years of experience, I can say that a tutor is not necessarily a mandatory link in the chain of learning. However, having an instructor is absolutely vital at the beginning, when you're making your first steps towards proficiency.
As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you an honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a learning program that fits your needs. My programs include elements of grammar, speaking and pronunciation practice in the proportions that are perfect for your learning style. To see how it works, book a lesson.

Teaching Experience:

I have four years of experience of teaching English and Russian as a foreign language. I have worked as a school teacher, as a university professor, and as a private tutor.
My experience made me realize that one-on-one lessons are the most beneficial for students. Many of my tutees achieved the goals they had in mind when they started learning a foreign language: passed a school exam, passed TOEFL, got a job, went on Work&Travel program, started watching their favorite TV-shows in the original, entered a university abroad.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very flexible about my teaching method. I have a good eye and can identify your strengths and weaknesses in language learning. I can give valuable recommendations on what will work well for you. At the same time, I take into account your preferences and look for compromises in the learning process. If you become my student, you will feel extremely comfortable and cared about.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and professional student who has a desire to learn, and to help others learn. :-)
I think that this makes me an excellent candidate not only to help other students, but to help them enjoy learning!
I am currently studying for a MChem at Cardiff University.
I also received all A's for my A-Levels, and 8 A*'s at GCSE.


I can easily form good relationships with other academics and colleagues as shown through my previous job experience. I also possess strong interpersonal skills, which have been developed through my many years of experience in both professional jobs and also some tutoring experience within schools.
Having a job throughout my studies has meant I have acquired a capacity to manage workloads to a good standard, including undertaking the whole of my third year of study at university while employed full time as an intern at the aircraft engineering company Airbus.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently completed voluntary tutoring experience within a 'Number Buddy' Scheme, where I entered schools to teach school children who were struggling with various problems in their curriculum for the whole year. This was incredibly rewarding, as the regular sessions meant that I could see the improvement made.

My grades throughout my education have been high, and so I have commonly helped other students with their work. This is mutually beneficial, as I think that you can learn something new from almost everyone you meet, including students who you are also teaching!

Tutoring Approach:

I like to get to know the tutees, and how they would like the sessions to run. This allows me to research the curriculum so that I can provide the highest level of tutoring possible, but also so the tutees can get as much out of the sessions as possible.

Once we become familiar with each other, a mixture of Q&A based 'flip-learning', where the tutees tell or ask me areas where help is needed and we can work through together, is used alongside test and exercise based learning. The exact nature is definitely dependant on the individual.
