Personal Description:
I am a caring and patient teacher . I develop good relationships with my pupils and care about their general well being. I adapt teaching aproaches to suit individual pupils to enable them to engage with the learning in a postive and supportive way. Children say they like my lessons and enjoy being tutored by me.
If you home school your child I can provide tutoring of a specific subject area fit around your timetable and the way your child prefers to learn.
I am also a parent of boys with SEN,(dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and adhd) and have a good knowledge of special education needs and the impact of these on teaching, learning and home life.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 5 years in the primary age range and really enjoy it. I have been privately tutoring for 6 years covering both all literacy areas and maths. I have up-to-date training in the new grammar, spelling and punctuation KS2 SAT's paper. In the area of spelling, I have current experience in the synthetic phonics approach. I have used this from the beginning stages in year 1, and also adapted teaching with the support of practical materials to pupils in KS2.
I can provide references from parents of current pupils.

I am able to support your child through the transition into secondary school, providing practical ideas to get ready and support during the first term to enable them to remain positive about their potential as a learner. I can also help advise on issues arising from difficulties in personal organisation from moving around the school to coping with having the right things in their bag on a daily basis.

I can tutor pupils through secondary education in English and English literature. I can support those who are experiencing dyslexic issues and need some support with homework.

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual taking into account both parents and the pupils views and needs. I provide suport to catch up on missed areas of basic skills, which is delaying learning, as well as being able to support targets set by school for the pupils individual progress. Through an initial consultation I seek to find out what the needs are and, with parents and pupil, plan suitable help to reach their goals. I share objectives with parents and pupils and give regular feed back to both to reach those goals. I belive it is important for all to see progress is being made. With parents and pupils permission, I like to make contact with their teacher to work with class teacher in identifing areas of difficulty and planning appropriate support. I find that this approach give the maximum benefit for all concerned.
The greatest difference I make to my pupils is to increase their confidence which in turn enables them to be more willing to take part in whole class sessions at school. Teachers of at least 2 of my pupils have remarked on the difference in attitude of the pupils who I have tutored.

Personal Description:
I am 56 years old, am a qualified teacher with 15 years experience. I am an easy-going reliable person who likes to make my students feel at ease at all times.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching seconday school students since qualifying in 1998. I have had two full-time posts, worked as a supply teacher as well as having private students. I have worked in Inner London, Outer London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire schools. I have also worked in France at a small private school during the '80's, predominantly teaching adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach French using the native tongue as much as possible. I use my own resources although I use the Internet for ideas whenever it's suitable.
For Maths I follow the syllabus laid down by whichever examining board the student is using and resources come from a wide variety of places usually from where I have recently been teaching. I gather information from colleagues who sometimes have great ideas. I like to be able to go through past papers with students marking work as we go through a course.

Personal Description:
Hello there,
My name is Elizabeth. I am a playwright and teacher. I have been working in the Arts for the last twenty years and have published two plays and written 10. One of my plays is currently being developed for the screen. I have written and performed in children's animation on a number of series for Brown bag films ( double academy award nominees). My background and training as a teacher,writer, performer in the Arts has led me to develope a style and approach to my role as a teacher that I would describe as both fun and focused! I feel my passion for my chosen field will infect any student of Drama and related subjects with a verve and focus they may not have experienced before. We all have a tutor or teachers that have influenced or led to a turning point in our education through their style and approach to the subject. Changing our perspective and leading us through the door of confusion and into light of understanding. I hope to be that tutor for you.

Teaching Experience:

12 years as a freelance tutor and drama examiner at both primary and third leval education. 15 years experience in workshop and performance technique in the Stanislavski system.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is one of consistency coupled with patience and encouragement towards achieving a goal in a reasonable amount of time so as not to overwhelm the student. The Tutor I feel should be there in a supportive role as well as being the students guide and pedagog. We as tutors are not there to just regurgitate information, rather we should encourage the student to learn. Understanding their needs when it comes to learing one hopes to also imbue them with a love of the subject. Setting homework that encourages them to think for themselves, read outside the course, imagine, devlope skills that may have been neglected.

Personal Description:
I have a Ph.D. and 1st class Honours degree in chemistry and physics and have worked in research laboratories in Universities and industry for over 7 years. During this time I also lectured and tutored chemistry and physics. I also developed strong links with a local school to supervise Advanced Higher Chemistry projects and have strong experience in this area. I am particularly specialised in Advanced Higher / 1st Year University and have spent a lot of time tutoring pupils of this age and level. I have a unique range of study materials for all levels that I teach, which have been developed to allow pupils to focus on practising questions in areas of their own particular weakness.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored undergraduate students and school students in chemistry and physics for more than 10 years. I am very familiar with the syllabus for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher chemistry and physics and 1st and 2nd year undergraduate and college chemistry courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very friendly and approachable and aim to make my students feel at ease and enjoy the lessons. I have an excellent range of practice materials for all courses I tutor. These can be worked on during the lesson or left with the student for additional practice and marked by me after their attempt. I frequently tutor the same students for consecutive years as they progress through the secondary school system and am often recommended to their classmates by word of mouth. I tutor a range of abilities from students struggling to sit the National 5 exam to students trying to attain an A at Advanced Higher.

Personal Description:
I am a recent UCL maths Msci graduate and I know how to get incredibly high marks on exams. My average mark on my A level maths/further maths was 92%. In a couple of the more interesting modules (FP1, C4), I got 100%. I continued this academic excellence into my undergraduate, my average was 82%, I did the hardest analysis / algebra courses.
Here is what one of my current students says about me:
"Joe has consistently proven to have great knowledge and understanding in all areas of mathematics. So far, my degree has required me to have a strong grasp of analysis, algebra, statistics and mathematical methods, all of which he has taught me in great detail. His enthusiasm for the subject has made our lessons exciting and extremely rewarding, often leaving me mulling over interesting mathematical problems that he has left for me to think about for homework. When I started with Joe, I had just failed my first year at UCL and thanks to his help, I achieved a 2:1 in the retake exams and am on the path to obtaining a first in my subsequent years. Joe has taught me methods that have enabled me to solve complex mathematical problems independently. I have never had a tutor with such a breath of knowledge, empathetic approach and natural ebullience as Joe. I highly recommend him to all students. " Hannah Michaels, 25, UCL mathematics undergraduate.

Tutoring is not a side project for me. It is a vocation I genuinely want to pursue to the fullest extent.
When I look at my achievements, I don't quite believe them: I grew up on a deprived council estate in Wolverhampton, life could have been so different. This is why I have applied for a PGCE; so that I may uplift others.
I am unique in that for a period of my adolescence (GCSE), I was home schooled. I know very well the challenges that home-schooled people face.
I was known as the "Ideas Man" in the maths common room at UCL: two years ago I gave an hour long talk at UCL on quaternion analysis for the The Mathematics Colloquium. I also helped a number of students with their own Colloquium talks. I am currently preparing a series of talks on relativistic fluid mechanics.
In my spare time I answer people's questions on math.stackexchange (my reputation score is currently 223). I also write poetry related to my mathematical interests. Aside from maths. I'm a huge computer games enthusiast (typical maths nerd!) and attend philosophy debates.
Availability:
My timetable is nearly full (12/16 hours of tuition weekly).
I am away from London: 23rd of December until 2nd of January.
Location is at discretion of the client.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring part time while I was studying in February, and I have been a full time tutor since graduation in August.
My maths and physics teachers put me in charge of mentoring AS students during my A levels. (I have three letters from my teachers confirming this, available on request.) Here are quotes from two:

"First rate physicist and mathematician... The tuition and help he has given has been really useful to those to who have received it... I would recommend him without reservation to any other student..." -Mr Ian Cunliffe FE Physics teacher, 2010; Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath campus.
"Joe has read widely around the subject... I can fully recommend Joe for his mathematical expertise as well as his ability to put across his explanations" -Dr A G Williamson FE maths teacher, 2010; Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath campus.
I mentored undergraduates in the maths department at UCL while I was studying; giving lectures on the provided whiteboards.
Five years of maths mentoring experience (10 hours / week) (Including university and college.)
Experience with home schooled students.
Experience with dyslexic students.

I have detailed knowledge of the demands of each specification for Maths and Further Maths A Level (AQA, OCR and Edecxel). I can also teach Maths IB and pre-U.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths lessons can be very daunting, with the teacher often moving on from key methods to difficult questions too quickly. One-to-one tuition is great because I can make sure a student really understands the fundamentals behind concepts, before tackling specific questions.
Rather than teach superficial 'tricks' to get answers, which often backfire in exams, I always give students a genuine grounding in a way of thinking about problems. It's also great that my students can ask the questions they've always wondered about in class, but been too self-conscious to ask.
I am experienced in providing custom-made handouts that cater to the individual needs of my students. The handouts usually cover things that cannot be reasonably tutored during lessons, and novel and instructive ways of solving problems.

Personal Description:
I studied Ecology with Biology at University and then went on to complete a Masters in Zoo Conservation Biology. This led to me training to be a Science teacher with a Biology focus. I am an active person and love being outdoors in the countryside or down at the beach.

Personal Description:
Enthusiastic with a restless intelligence, thirsty for knowledge, always keen to discover more, I am continually fascinated by the interplay between culture and society. I have expert knowledge in English and American Literature, the history of cinema, and the development of western philosophy. I resigned from my post as head of department at a large comprehensive school so that I would have more time to write my book comparing the films of Preminger and Hitchcock. Freed from the administrative demands of a school, I have even more energy and creativity to devote to teaching, and will have a powerfully positive impact on whoever I tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have over thirty years' experience in a wide variety of educational contexts: at universities in Britain and abroad, in comprehensive schools, FE colleges, language schools and professional training. I have worked as a A Level examiner and moderator for over ten years, so understand exactly what students need to do to impress markers, and can advise on how to avoid mediocrity. I have been tutoring online for two years, and find that the level of concentration in a Skype session is usually higher than in person: the start is crisper, the learning more focused.

Tutoring Approach:

Fun, exciting, inspiring. I love the stimulating variety of one-to-one tuition. Over the years, I have adapted my plans, materials and methods to meet the specific needs, aims and expectations of an extremely wide variety of learners in terms of ability, personality and specialisation. At one end of the scale, I trained Swedish officers in media relations ahead of their deployment with the UN in Bosna, and spent eight weeks one-to-one with the head of personnel of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, improving his presentation skills. At the other end of the scale, I had notable success tutoring a teenager with emotional and behavioural difficulties who had been permanently excluded from school for violence, and was in local authority care. Working with him individually for three hours a day, concentrating on English, Maths and History, I had a very positive and potentially transformative impact. At every point in scale, I treat individuals with respect and dedication, determined to help them achieve their potential.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about teaching English and love helping those who struggle just as much as stretching those who find it easier. I have 17 year teaching experience and in that time, have taught children up to the age of 13; helping older children prepare for 13+ Public School Entrance exams as well as teaching younger children to master phonics, basic reading skills and spelling. I am an experienced SATs marker enabling me to help children to prepare for these exams. I have worked closely with learning support departments in order to support and extend those children with difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. I have achieved part one of a Diploma in Teaching Children with Specific Learning Difficulties. I also have a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language which means I have an in depth knowledge of English grammar as well as an understanding of how teenagers and adults learn.

I am an avid reader and writer but a mum to a reluctant reader so I understand how difficult it can be to get children to read. I do, however, believe that there is something for everyone.

Additionally, I can teach French and German. I have taught them both to GCSE level and studied both languages to degree level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 17 years and was most recently a teacher of years 5 to 8 English and French at a well-respected private school for children aged 5 - 18. Prior to that I taught at an independent prep school where I was a class teacher as well as a member of the Senior Management Team and Head of Girls' Games. I have an excellent understanding of all aspects of child development and the need to make learning meaningful and fun. I am passionate about reading as well as all types of writing and am a member of the National Handwriting Association. I am also able to include IT in the classroom when necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends entirely on the needs of the child. After an initial consultation, I would be able to offer support with reading and comprehension and/or writing (whether it be handwriting or speed of writing - or both). It might be a case of helping your child to understand English grammar as well as teaching them techniques to enable them to include it effectively in their own writing. If it is a case of preparing for forthcoming exams, then this can be done by using past papers as well as my own materials devised after extensive experience of helping children prepare for all types of exams. You may just want some extra support for your child over the summer and prior to the start of a busy new term. Whatever it is, it will be done with empathy and enthusiasm.
