Personal Description:
After leaving school, I studied at Nottingham University for a BA in Music, then for a MA in Theology from the London School of Theology. Having worked for a while at an inner-city secondary school, I went on to complete a research masters and am currently studying for a PhD. My own interests are principally in theology, philosophy and politics, but also the arts, culture and social work. I am married, have two children, and am a keen football fan (Manchester United).

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Religious Studies at secondary school and I have also worked as a freelance tutor at various points over several years for students studying Philosophy and Ethics, History, English and Music at a range of levels.

I have worked with extremely bright students but also have a lot of experience of working with students with special educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

Education is about more than being able to pass exams, although this is obviously important! I have worked hard for my qualifications and belive in disciplined, productive study; however for some students getting the highest possible grade is not necessarily the most important thing. Each person is an individual with different strengths and weaknesses, so I try to structure how I teach around individual needs and goals. When teaching I also believe that giving people self confidence, an ability to think critically and an enjoyment of the subject is an important part of helping them to improve.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris and I specialise in preparing students for both the 11+ entrance exams and A-level chemistry exams. Until January 2011, I was a Science Teacher at Plymstock School in Plymouth where I had been the Head of Chemistry for 10 years. Previously I had worked at Kelly College Independent School as a Chemistry Teacher and the Head of Lower School Science. Since January 2011, I have been self employed as both a Professional Tutor and also a Professional Drummer! I love both aspects of my self-employment and look forward to helping many more students achieve exam success.

Teaching Experience:

Chris has been teaching and tutoring A-level chemistry since 1994 and as an ex-Head of Chemistry who has worked in both state schools and private schools, he has helped countless students achieve the high grades they often need for university entrance. Many of my ex-students have gone on to vet school, medical school and Ox-bridge.

Chris has also been teaching Key Stage 3 since 1994 and has a good understanding of the level of written work and mathmatical ability expected of the most able Year 7 students when they begin Secondary School. He has helped countless students to achieve their potential throughout Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and earlier in his career he was employed as Head of Lower School Science at Kelly College Independent School in Tavistock, Devon.

Chris has a boy and a girl who have both been through the 11+ process and so is well aware of the stresses and benefits that all families are likely to experience, if they are to apply to a selective school.

Chris has an up to date fully enhanced CRB check and also public liability insurance.
You can also find him on the internet listed with various other agencies.

Grammar school education is really rewarding for able students and I hope to get the
chance to show you what the schools are looking for.

Tutoring Approach:

CHEMISTRY
I use boardworks PowerPoints to aid understanding but try to focus the learning around past paper questions and answers as much as possible.
I have handwritten answers to AQA, OCR-A and OCR-Salters past papers which are scanned in to the computer for projection onto a smart board.
28 is the 1:1 rate but evening sessions are likely to be small tutorials of a maximum of 4 students in the same year following the same course at a cost of 24 per student.
1:1 sessions are available during the day. Day rates are
45 mins 21 individual / 18 joint session
60 mins 28 individual / 24 joint session
90 mins 42 individual / 36 joint session
120 mins 56 individual / 48 joint session

Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer

ELEVEN PLUS
For 11+, I teach collaboratively with my neighbour Becky, also listed on UK Tutors. We jointly teach small groups with class sizes limited to a maximum of ten students. Students in a small group support each other and work together with a shared purpose and confidence.
Weekly 60 minute sessions at 17.50, run from September until the end of February. These are followed by 75 minute sessions at 20 which run from March to the September exams. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

Becky is a knowledgeable Primary School teacher with experience across the primary age range. She has a particular interest in enabling children to reach their full potential, using interesting teaching strategies and by recognising various learning styles. She obtained her BEd Honours degree in Primary Teaching as a mature student and not only achieved a first class degree, but completed each of her placements as an 'Outstanding' teacher. Becky has a fully enhanced CRB and is trained in the Safeguarding of Children. She has also ensured that she has kept up to date through continued professional development.
Becky is married with two daughters who have both passed the 11 plus exams.

Personal Description:
I am married with three grown up children, several chickens and a dog.
I am a regular churchgoer, a supporter of Newcastle United (I know...) and a friendly and outgoing person.
I drive my fully restored Morris Minor whenever I can, leaving the modern car for my wife and daughter. Apart from that I am quite normal!

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher of RE at secondary level, being Head of RE and SMSC at a local non selective school. As such I am well used to teaching and supporting students of all abilities and with all kinds of needs and baggage.
In addition to teaching I mark GCSE papers for the AQA exam board which gives me a significant insight into examination requirements and technique. My latest school results were an almost 25% A* to A pass rate from a non selective cohort of over 200 students.
Before entering the teaching profession I spent 20 years in Christian youth ministry, which does not colour my tutoring, but does give me a uniquely thorough knowledge of Christianity in particular.

Tutoring Approach:

I am relaxed and friendly, able to get alongside even the most reluctant of students and persuade them to learn.
I believe enjoyment and relevance are the key attractions to students, qualities often perceived to be lacking in the subject. I like to be topical and humorous, whilst also being organised and firm in my approach.

Personal Description:
I am a student at Cass Business School, studying Actuarial Science. I have just finished my second year of the course. I am available to teach material that is required for the 11 plus exam, such as non-verbal reasoning, verbal reasoning and mathematics. I have access to books containing this type of material such as Bond, NFER Nelson etc. In addition, I can teach mathematics at any level up to GCSE level.

Teaching Experience:

While studying my A-Levels at secondary school, I helped out at Maths Clinic, where students who had problems with Maths questions would come and I help them address the problem.

Tutoring Approach:

If a student has a difficulty with a particular question, I prefer to ask them if they can recall anything they have learnt that is relevant to the question, such as a formula. After this, I try to guide them to finding the solution to the question.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic tutor simply because I love to share my knowledge with other people. I enjoy making comparison between subjects and connect the most various topic.

I am not only good at Math, Physics and Chemistry, but my best skill is the planning of the time and the manner of studying. That is something that no one teach at school and in my opinion is the real power every students need.

I don't have any problem to give one free trial lesson, because I am sure you will never regret. Also I can provide any certificate I achieved.

Teaching Experience:

I have being tutoring during the whole high school (scientific Diploma at Liceo Scientifico Enrico Fermi, Bologna) and Bachelor's degree (Energy Engineering, at Alma Mater Studiorum, Bologna).
My students were not only younger than me, but mostly they were my classmate.

Tutoring Approach:

It depends on the student actually. However I can sum it up, saying:

- careful planning to achieve the goals
- working day by day, every day
- focusing on the weakness to change into strong points

Personal Description:
I am a French philosopher based in Paris and London. I have graduated from Sorbonne University in 2006. My approach to philosophy tries to blend the Continental and the Analytic Anglo-Saxon tradition. I have been teaching classes in General Philosophy, Metaphysics and Logic.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in various contexts: in high school (A-Level) as a Teaching Assistant at Sorbonne University, on the Paris campus of Saint John`s University in New York. I have also been occasionally tutoring some students. I have also written many popularization articles.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is based on an understanding of the needs of the tutored person with regards to the academic requirements in vigour and his own interest in the discipline. Depending on the context, I offer a approach based on the history of philosophy or on given philosophical problems, putting the emphasis either on culture or on the acquisition of an aptitude to sound reasoning or critical thinking.

View Jonathan's profile or  Quick View

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.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to support all my pupils by concentrating on their weaker areas while always ensuring an all round approach. 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 currently enrolled in SOAS, University of London as a Masters student studying the Political Economy of Development. My primary research includes investigating the impacts of public policy on economic development. My academic training has led to strong interests in subjects including History, Politics, Economics, and English. I received my undergraduate degree in Politics and History from Brunel University and achieved a 2:1 overall.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over 3 years. For over a year and a half, I began my teaching career by leading group tutoring sessions at a local university in preparation for the English GCSE. This was enlightening for me as a teacher, particularly when hearing and critiquing student's opinions or arguments on works of literature. In line with these teaching experiences, I have gained a certificate for community teaching (CLEI). As of this year, whilst attending University for my masters, I have been tutoring students part-time in subjects that include English, Politics and History.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe having a personable demeanor and having fun interactive and engaging lessons are the best approach to learning. I am also a strong proponent of encouraging my students to always reach their highest potential and to give their best effort to the course material. I also believe in learning as a collaborative process between the tutor and student, highlighted by discovery and insight.
