Personal Description:
I am a Mathematics graduate from Cambridge University. After graduating, I worked in the IT industry, initially for a large corporation and then for an independent software house. I later formed my own company, specialising in developing applications for small- to medium-sized companies. I used the logical skills developed through studying Mathematics in my work as Business Analyst and Project Manager.
Since 2009, I have been tutoring Mathematics full-time. I also study extensively to keep up to date with the latest mathematical ideas and educational trends. I ensure that I am familiar with the most recent syllabuses.
Outside work, my main interest is music, particularly singing. I belong to two choirs.

Teaching Experience:

I teach exclusively one-to-one, as I believe that provides the best outcome for learning Mathematics. I am also available for home schooling: please contact me for rates.
In the six years that I have been tutoring Mathematics, I have taught the following topics to over 200 pupils on a one-to-one basis:
GCSE - Edexcel, AQA and iGCSE - legacy and 9-1

A-Levels (AS/A2) - Edexcel, AQA, OCR/OCR-MEI and Pre-U - legacy and new syllabus:
Core
Mechanics
Statistics
Further Pure
Decision
STEP
Oxford Maths Admissions Test
Advanced Extension Award

Complex variable
Cryptography
Foundation requirements

My GCSE and A level pupils have come from local schools including:
• Tiffin School
• Tiffin Girls
• ACS Cobham
• Teddington
• Esher College
• Kingston Grammar
• Hinchley Wood
• Hampton

• Latymer
• Kingston College
Most of my university pupils attend Kingston University, Surrey University, or one of the University of London colleges, though many come for intensive lessons in the holidays from other universities to reinforce the topics they are learning, or to prepare for re-sits.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring the teaching approach to each student's needs and individual learning style. For school children and university students, I discuss their aims with them - and with their parents, if required - to determine what topics need additional tuition and then to work out the appropriate programme. I advocate continuous assessment to measure the student's progress. Closer to exams, the pupils will work through old papers. At this stage, strategic choices may be made to focus on the pupils strengths.
For adults, I work with them to develop a personalised programme to enable them to achieve their goals. This may mean working towards a specific qualification.
I have great passion for and a deep knowledge of Mathematics. My aim is always to get my students to enjoy the subject. Most importantly, they are encouraged to gain confidence in their own abilities by building on what they feel comfortable with. I believe that the right teacher can undo wrong learning very quickly.
Lessons take place at my students' homes, or at my home in Kingston, where I have a quiet study. Assignments and homework are an integral part of my teaching: there can be no improvement without practice.

Personal Description:
Before coming into teaching, I worked in the Music Industry as a professional session singer. The work was varied and diverse. I sang with many named artistes and toured on an international level. I also have extensive experience in the recording studio. In 2005, I deceided to 'change direction' and studied Performance Arts, gaining a BA Hons Degree in the subject in 2008.
I studied Shakespeare, Stanislavski and many other drama practioners and methods.
I feel that because of my life experience, I bring a very friendly approach to my teaching. Also, being a 'mature student' myself has added to my understanding of needing alittle 'help' at times.
My approach is a mixture of theory and practical. I like to make sure that my student understands where he/she is approaching the given subject - be it an acting method or a scripted reading.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating with honours, I went on to gain a Post Grad teaching degree (PGCE). I have been teaching singing privately for the past eight years and started teaching drama and performing arts since 2006. Whilst doing my PGCE, I was employed as a part-time lecturer for performance arts at Salford University teaching 2nd year degree students.
I have taught at a private performing schools whose ages range from 6 to 18 years old and at private acting academy that is attached to ITV studios in Leeds.
Because of all my experience, I am able to cover three subjects to any level - drama, singing and Musical Theatre.

Since 2013, I have been tutoring at my home. Please note: I have cats and dogs so be aware of this if you have any allergies.

Tutoring Approach:

On our first meeting, I like to find out just where the student is at in their given subject; what their past experiences are and what their expectations are of having extra tuition. An understanding of their strengths and weaknesses is also important to find out at an early stage so that together, we can plan a way forward.
I am a friendly, patient and easy-going person with a very good sense of humour but I take my teaching very seriously and remain quite passionate about drama and performing arts on the whole.
I always like to make sure that the student leaves my class with full understanding of the work we have done and will ensure that any questions or concerns are addressed before the end of the lesson.

Subjects
  • Drama
  • GCSE or Standards (£20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I perform regularly for charity and private functions. I began training as a singer at the age of 12 and went to to study music at the University of Chichester.

Personal Description:
My name is Haidee, I'm a 19 year old from Liverpool studying French at The University of Liverpool. (I often go to Kirkby and Fazackerly to work and see family so would often be available to tutor in that area too). I have thoroughly enjoyed learning French for 8 years and would love to pass on my knowledge so that you can enjoy learning French too! This is my first time tutoring but I have a genuine love and flair for languages and have enjoyed teaching friends in my own time, so please don't let this put you off as I would love to help!

In school I sat my GCSE early at the age of 14 (year 9), passing with a B. I then continued to study French for the final two years of school and passed again with an A*. I also started studying Spanish in the last two years and passed with an A. During college I studied French to A2 level, passing with a B. In my time in college I spent a week each year in Montpellier living with a French family and attending a French language school, which I really enjoyed and feel helped me with my learning.

In my free time I love to cook (although I'm not very good at it!), go out for meals (when my cooking goes wrong!), read and watch films. I also love to practise Tae Kwon Do, which I started at the age of 15, although I don't do this since I moved away to university.

Teaching Experience:

This is my first time trying tutoring, but I often helped my sister with her French to GCSE level. I also helped a friend of mine who struggled in school to pass her English and Maths GCSE by using imaginative teaching and memory techniques, to which she was very grateful. Due to having friends that also study languages I am used to being able to help others in areas in which they struggle. I have worked with children and young adults from age 2-18 part-time for the past 3 years and so would be comfortable teaching from all ages.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my learning experience I have found that it is best to learn the basic rules and grammar of a language from the start, as this has made it easier to build on this. I have lots of quirky ways of remembering things myself and would urge you to figure out how best you learn in order to develop your own style. I also enjoy to watch films/news, listen to music and read genuine French articles to enhance my own learning and would be using these to make your learning more interesting. As not every individual is the same I will adapt my teaching to suit your style and meet your individual needs and if there's something different you want to do please let me know so I can change!

Personal Description:
Specialist in intensive Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology tuition, revision and exam preparation/technique.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught A-level full-time for 18 years and am an examiner for both subjects for a number of boards.

Many of my tutees have gone on to score 100% in units and after a comparatively short period of time improved their A-level score by several grades.

I also tutor undergraduates in Psychology and Anthropology, can advise on university choices and UCAS applications, provide university interview practice, and tutor prospective medic students for reasoning and written tasks for BMAT and UKCAT tests.

Testimonials from past and present students can be provided.

I hold a BSc in Anthropology from UCL and a PGCE from the Institute of Education, London.

Tutoring Approach:

As a specialist in exam-focused, intensive tuition, I provide tutees with clear, concise class notes and revision materials specifically aimed at ensuring they understand exactly what is required in answers, how to address exam board assessment criteria, how to structure essays, how to manage time in exams, and strategies and tactics to maximise success. Homework will be provided to tutees between sessions and marked as it would be by official examiners in live exams - thus, strengths and weaknesses can be addressed.

I am an engaging, approachable tutor who enjoys teaching and makes learning interesting, rewarding and enjoyable. However, I will make demands on tutees in line with their aspirations and be entirely honest with parents and tutees about progress.

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm Jessica. I am an enthusiastic Biology graduate who is passionate about the subject and have a broad and detailed knowledge of the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience as a classroom assistant in a primary school where I worked with individual students who required additional support. I also completed a 'Communication and Teaching in Science' module at University. This involved spending time within a Primary school, working with small groups on a science project.

Tutoring Approach:

I want to ensure the syllabus is covered and think it is important to identify the areas which are being overlooked either because they are 'boring' or difficult to understand. I aim to help make the subject more interesting and reminding students that there are lots of interesting facts to learn. I studied for 7 years at University therefore have good experience in identifying the key points to remember for exams.

Personal Description:
Following the completion of my A-Levels in Maths, Physics and Music I undertook an undergraduate degree in Music, as a part of which I was required to also study Maths during my first year. I have been playing Trumpet and Cornet for over 30 years now and have been teaching both Brass and Music Theory for the last 18 years. I regularly submit students for ABRSM exams and to date I maintain an exceedingly good pass rate for all my pupils who decide to undertake Grade examinations in both their instruments and Music Theory. I strongly encourage my pupils to undertake study of Music Theory as part of their lessons alongside their Practical Study, as experience has shown many students attain Grade V ABRSM with no substantial previous knowledge of this area.
As Grade V Theory is a requirement of the ABRSM before a student can be entered for a Grade VI examination on their instrument I feel that teaching the Theory alongside their instrumental studies assists in minimising the delay before a student can proceed to the higher examinations if they so wish. Further to this I believe it also allows them a better understanding of the music they are striving to perform. While I encourage my students to take the Grade examinations as a mark of their progress I am also happy to work with students who do not wish to undertake the pressures of certification but just wish to learn to play or improve their playing ability for their own enjoyment.

This places the element of control with regard to areas covered firmly in the hands of the student in order that maximum benefit is gained from each session while also ensuring that the whole subject is covered.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD in Chemistry and currently working in a secondary school. I have also been tutoring and would like to continue doing so as I find it to be a very rewarding job. I have an extensive experience as I have been in this field for more than 20 years.

As a parent, I know that my children benefited from being tutored prior to their GCSEs and A levels. Due to this reason, I would like to provide others with the same opportunity to boost their confidence so that they can excel in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. I am a calm, collected and patient individual who enjoys supporting and encouraging students to take an interest in Science due to its fast-growing field with a vast array of job prospects.

Teaching Experience:

Through working at a secondary school in Surrey since 2007, I have developed key skills to support the learning of pupils within a structured teaching situation, small group withdrawal or individually as required. Working with individual pupils allows me to maintain their personal confidence, promote positive behaviour and encourage them to be independent individuals.

Furthermore, I have also worked as Lecturer of Chemistry from which I gained experience in preparing suitable resources for all topics and delivering lectures to a class environment. I always monitored the progress of my students and ensured they received sufficient guidance.

Tutoring Approach:

Along with working during the day , I provide tuitions in the evenings and weekends in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths. As I am a flexible individual, I ensure that my tuitions are tailored to meet each tutee's needs.
Usually, I begin with ensuring that they have a strong foundation of the topic before studying it in greater detail. A strong foundation allows the tutee to apply their knowledge more effectively to exam style questions.
If the tutee would like to consolidate a particular topic, I would prepare various questions either from past papers or text-books to ensure that their understanding is clear. Also, I believe that memorising key definitions and facts can be very useful in an exam. Therefore, I use various memory games, flash cards and mini-tests to ensure that the tutee can recall these key definitions in a time-pressured exam environment. Through being a published research chemist, I have been able to understand various topics in detail such as, 'photo catalysed transformation of some toxic substances on semi-conducting chalcogenides'. I have also written a thesis on this topic and therefore, I believe, that my knowledge will allow me to tutor for A-Level Chemistry very effectively.
Due to my ample experience of working in different fields, I have gained good communication and problem solving skills. I believe in having a high standard in work and hope that it will reflect in my tutee's progress.
