Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level as well as Politics at A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Personal Description:
Qualified Teacher Status since 2013 by the Department of Education and Leadership in UK.
University Bachelor's Degree in Teaching specialized in Foreign Languages.
City and Guilds Certificate to teach Adult learners

Teaching Experience:

Since I left University in 1999 I have been teaching all levels of Spanish courses. I have worked for Redbridge and Barking&Dagenham colleges of Adult Education , teaching GCSE,AS/A2 and Advanced Conversation Courses. I have an excellent record of one-to-one tutoring with a very successful exam results. I also have the opportunity to work as an examiner for one of the boards which has given me more insight into the expectations for Spanish GCSE exams.
Familiar with AQA and EDEXCEL examining boards and their controlled assesments

Tutoring Approach:

Spanish is an amazing language! I believe learners need to understand the grammar well as this aspect is essencial to get good grades in their final exams. One-to-one tuition is the support your children need to gain confidence and not to give up before the extreme pressure of their exams. Once this is achieved learners will perform much better!
Past paper exams are also a good tools to help learners to be familiar with the exam requirements.

Personal Description:
I was born and raised in California and came to London to attend university. I recently received a first class degree in International Business from Middlesex University. I also possess a HND in Business Management in which I received a distinction mark. I work well with others and have tutoring experience that I gained previously during my studies. People that I have tutored say that I am a good teacher and I explain things in a simple easy to understand manner. I have helped many students, and can help with coursework assistance, proofreading, examination preparation, and lecture slide revision.

Teaching Experience:

I am great at writing and have excellent grammatical skills. People that I have tutored always do well in their modules and my pupils tell me that I am a good teacher that can clearly explain information. I have business experience and possess plenty of business knowledge that I gained during my studies. I have a soft approach to tutoring, first learning about the individual in order to create a customized lesson plan to suit the specific needs of the individual. I can meet at a time and place convenient to you and will always prepare my lessons in advance to provide you with the best help possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach people in unique ways depending on the individual. For example if English is knew to the student, I have to explain things in a much more individually focused approach. I can show you methods that I guarantee will raise your marks. For example, during my studies, I learned various tips and tricks which helped me gain my first class degree and I would be happy to share them with you. These tips include shortcuts to researching and referencing, and writing tips for those who experience difficulty while completing reports or essays. I can help you structure your assignments in a academic manner that will impress your teachers and can double check your assignments correcting any mistakes.

Personal Description:
I am a retired scientist. I worked as a senior scientist for a major pharmaceutical company for more than 30 years. I hold a first class hons degree in chemistry, a degree in maths and a post graduate degree in organic chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully tutored students at GCSE and AS/A levels for many years. Currently I am coaching AS/A level students from AQA,OCR A / Salters, EDEXEL and IB boards.

Most of my students improve their grades at least by two levels.

Messages from past students:

15th June 2014:

It has been a pleasure to meet John, I was apprehensive about using a tutor from a website, but luckily for my daughter and I, when asking around both at the school and elsewhere no one knew of anyone they could recommend.

My daughters confidence in chemistry, and her faith in getting the grade she needed to achieve her aim, in doing bio chemistry at university, came on in leaps and bounds.

I would be only too happy to recommend John as a tutor, as he follows up on his pupils, rings them in his own time to check how they did in their tests and exams, his pupils and their results are his top priority.

Thank you so much John, carry on the good work, I know you will.

Valerie, Stevenage.

John has been my daughter's Chemistry tutor for the last 6 months. We have found him to be very knowledgeable and helped her to understand concepts better. He also is very good in explaining difficult topics and also navigating through revision papers and explaining what needs to be done to improve grades. He is very patient and kind which sets him apart. My daughter is an AS student and this has reflected in her grades and confidence. He is an outstanding teacher and I have no hesitation recommending him.

Comments: John has been great for the few weeks he has been helping me out, his knowledge of all the main syllabuses is extremely detailed, which comes into play very well when linking knowledge between each of the modules, perfect for the exam questions posed on A level Chemistry. Very professional and approachable, John insists you make use of his guidance and knowledge whenever need be and that he is always available to assist you in your studies. I feel extremely confident thus far that I can achieve the grade I need with John's help.

Hope you and your family are well and you are all enjoying India! We had a wonderful time in India and returned on Saturday night. I tried to call you yesterday and my mum reminded me that you must still be in India.

I achieved A*AA! I got the A overall in Chemistry that I wanted. I am now accepted into St George's University of London and will be started from 23rd September.

A HUGE thank you for all your help over the past year in guiding me with my Chemistry A Level and I hope to see you on your return from India.

Many thanks,

John has helped my son with Chemistry A level since October last year in order to get his Grade from a C to a B. Since working with John, my son's grades have improved tremendously - even to a Grade A in one of his exams this January. John tailors his tutorials exactly to the needs of the student, taking time to ensure that each area is fully understood. My son's teachers noticed a difference in my son's classwork within weeks of seeing John, commenting that his confidence and understanding had improved even at that early stage. I have no hesitation recommending this tutor, and hope to continuing working with him leading up to this Summer.

John has been helping my son with his A levels in chemistry and since then my son's confidence has grown and we have better hopes of my son achieving an A or B grade in chemistry. John works well with my son when teaching and he takes time to explain difficult tasks . i am pleased with John's teaching skills so far and i would gladly recommend him to any one looking for a chemistry tutor and i think his price is fare too.

Tayo, Stevenage.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to work on areas where the students need specific attention rather than systematically going through the whole syllabus. I encourage students to work out past papers giving special attention to appropriate mark schemes. So it is very much hands-on, ensuring that the students have fully understood the fundamentals so that they have full confidence in handling the questions.

Personal Description:
I enjoy maths and helping other people to enjoy it too. I have always kept up my interest in maths by studying with the Open University and I particularly enjoy finding ways to use games and puzzles to create interest and understanding. I worked in business computing and always enjoyed the training side of the job. At the moment I am working as a private tutor, helping my husband to renovate and restore a seventeenth century house and training an unruly young sprollie dog.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE in secondary maths teaching and taught in a secondary school for one year. During my career in IT as an analyst/programmer I trained staff in programming techniques, and also trained users as part of the implementation of the many systems I was involved in. My enjoyment of maths and teaching led me to refresh and extend my skills by studying for a PGCE in post compulsory education. During the course of this I gained experience of whole class teaching, one to one and small group tutoring at GCSE and A-level.

I have now been working as a private tutor with individual pupils for a year and am learning all the time! I have experience of students taking GCSE maths for the first time and with those doing resits. I can offer tuition up to AS level (C1, C2, S1). I have experience of working with students with dyslexia. I am also an Adult Education Tutor and work with people returning to maths later in life.

Tutoring Approach:

I love helping other people to understand and enjoy maths, and I know that the classroom is not always the best place to do this - many people need the individual attention that one to one or small group tutoring gives in order to bring up their basic skills, learn to build on them and so gain confidence and enjoyment. Maths is too often the subject that people learn to hate and fear - a little one to one help can turn all that around. I aim to give my students a good understanding of the subject rather than learning one-off tricks and rules.

The following is an unsolicited testimonial from one of my tutee's parents:

"Deborah is a very professional tutor and always tries to make our son's weekly maths tutorial as beneficial, creative and enjoyable as possible. She is very dedicated and prepared to listen and help and follows up her tutorials with useful homework for our son to work on during the week. You can see how much personal satisfaction she gets from helping our son, which is great.

I would not hesitate to fully recommend Deborah and her approach to tutoring maths. She clearly cares about her work and helping children to get to grips with maths."

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Suzanne and I have over 10 years of experience studying and working in UK universities. I have undergraduate and masters degrees in Psychology, and completed my PhD in Biological Anthropology in 2014. I am interested in all aspects of human evolution ranging from cognition and biology to politics and philosophy. My academic research focuses on comparative cognition - using behavioural studies of other species of primate to gain insight into how modern humans evolved - and included two years of fieldwork with wild primates in Gashaka Gumti National Park in Nigeria.

While I love working with non-human primates, I am also interested in science communication and have worked on projects ranging from ongoing education work with UCL and ZSL London Zoo to stand up comedy to at Edinburgh Festival.

Teaching Experience:

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and have taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses at University College London, including 'Approaches to Knowledge', a foundation module aimed at developing critical thinking and a range of study skills, and 'Evolution and the Human Condition'. The latter is a second year undergraduate course for which I co-wrote the syllabus and taught, covering various aspects of evolutionary theory in biology, chemistry and philosophy. I also have experience designing and grading assessments at degree level, and can offer insight into what examiners are looking for when grading essays.

Outside of the University environment, I have previously tutored masters students in Psychology and Anthropology, and worked as an outreach lecturer visiting schools and delivering workshops for children aged 12-17.

Student Testimonials:

"I cannot express highly enough how supportive Suzanne has been. I employed her help for my final degree year after receiving very poor level of feedback from my own university and she has not disappointed. Quick to respond to any concern I have in a supportive and guiding way, Suzanne has been a lifeline for me. Suzanne explains difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. Her feedback is fantastic, critical but in a supportive and guiding way that has enabled my development and improvement."
- Current undergraduate student

"The quality of staff on the course was far above the standard of many courses on offer, and size of classes conducive to their exuberance. Consequently, these were among the best if not the best I've had."
- Former undergraduate student

"I was very happy with my seminar as she listened to what we needed each week and stuck to a loose plan, rather than keeping a strict plan to cover each week"
- Former undergraduate student

Tutoring Approach:

I emphasise the critical thinking and writing skills that enable students not only to obtain higher grades, but also to continue to progress their studies outside of tutoring sessions.

While individual sessions are relaxed and discussion and debate around study topics is encouraged, I ask students to define a specific aim in their first session so that I can ensure that we are progressing towards that goal in subsequent meetings. If working towards an exam or assignment deadline, I request the course syllabus to ensure the best results, and have successfully helped students to obtain high grades using this approach in the past.

Once expectations have been established, there is a lot of room for flexibility such as the inclusion of field trips to exhibitions and public lectures that are relevant to the topic of study if students wish to broaden their approach to academic work.

Personal Description:
I'm a highly motivated and passionate editor with over five years' experience in copywriting, editorial and publishing. I recently trained to become an English Language Teacher and gained the Cambridge English Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA).

I currently work as a freelance editor and writer and offer private tutoring for foreign language learners. If you wish to learn or improve your English, then please get in touch. My hourly rate is reasonable and my hours are flexible. I can either host the sessions or come to you.

Teaching Experience:

I completed 120 hours of a full-time teacher training course leading to the Cambridge English Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) from 5-30th September 2016. The course was of an extremely practical nature and included six hours of supervised and assessed teaching practice on groups of adult foreign students. The course also included work on teaching methodology and techniques, and phonology.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is personable, supportive and encouraging. Before the tutoring sessions begin, I will carry out an initial consultation, which will enable me to gage the student's level (e.g. elementary, intermediate), as well as their reading, writing, listening and speaking abilities. It's also important that I understand the student's motivations for learning English.

During the tutoring sessions, we'll cover the basics of English grammar (depending on level) and practise the grammar and vocabulary using real-life activities, such as, writing an email; listening to conversations; speaking and reading authentic materials (e.g.magazine articles, emails...)

I'll use a number of effective teaching techniques for practising and checking language, and work hard to make my clarification of meaning effective. I believe in student-centred lessons and respond to students' needs, correcting errors appropriately.

Personal Description:
I am a 19 year old prospective medical student on a gap year, thus I have a lot of spare time on my hands and would like the opportunity to improve a person's learning through a fun and interactive environment.

I am available in the weekday from anytime in the mid afternoon to evening and am also more than willing to provide support through texts. I can travel up to 10 miles.

Thanks for viewing my profile and I hope to hear from you soon! :)

Teaching Experience:

Over the years I have helped my classmates in my own spare time with hard to understand scientific and linguistic concepts and aspire to pass this on to even more students. I have also helped to teach younger students to read and explain concepts to them.

I have achieved 9 A*/A grades at GCSE and A*AA at A level in Chemistry, Biology and Spanish retrospectively. I achieved these grades through sheer hard work and being motivated by my teachers.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a positive learning environment is so important in order to be able to achieve a student's full potential. I have loads of resources which were so useful for me throughout my academic years and would love to share these with tutees to help them achieve their full potential.
