Personal Description:
DO YOU NEED A TUTOR FOR EXAMS/RE-SIT EXAMS THIS YEAR? LOOK NO FURTHER!


I have been teaching Psychology since 2001 at several of the best performing sixth form colleges in the Greater Manchester area including Holy Cross College and Loreto College. Both colleges were awarded grade 1 by OFSTED.
I am 40 years old, married, living in Didsbury, South Manchester. I gained my degree in Psychology in 2000 and PGCE in 2001. I began teaching for over 15 years of experience teaching Psychology. I also have extensive experience of working with students with a wide range of learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia.

I offer tuition at my home, either at the weekend, weekdays and evenings

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE in 2001. I teach Psychology GCSE, AS and A2 level, and this is therefore my main specialism. I also have extensive experience of working with students with a wide range of learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia.
I have many years' experience of teaching the AQA, OCR & WJEC specifications. I am also an experienced examiner for AQA, OCR and WJEC and have marked most units at GCSE, AS & A2 level.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that my greatest strengths tutoring are firstly my ability to build sound relationships with parents and pupils. Secondly my skill at gaining a clear understanding of a pupils exact needs, to motivate and build self-esteem, and thirdly my commitment to helping student access teaching materials in order to gain success .

I have successfully taught many students privately on a 1-2-1 basis at home. I have taught a mix of abilities and needs from students with special needs struggling to cope with traditional academic teaching to a Paralympian trying to find time to study while training. I have taught a number of privately educated students with dyslexia who benefited from being shown alternative ways to achieve success.

I have an incredibly strong track record of excellent results at GCSE & A Level Psychology. Marking for the exam board help me focus students learning and tailor their writing styles to achieve a high quality answer in exams.

Growing up as a dyslexic afforded me a unique insight into the importance of developing study skills that are essential in being able to access knowledge & build understanding. Due to being dyslexic I have been fortunate enough to develop strategies within my teaching to help student's who may have difficulties in learning and breaking down barriers to learning which can effect one's self-esteem and contribute to underachievement. I found this to be particularly true of students I have tutored privately both dyslexic and non - dyslexics.

Personal Description:
I am an LSE graduate in BSc Accounting and Finance and have also obtained postgraduate qualifications in Statistics, I am currently a dedicated and passionate full-time tutor, I am passionate about my subjects and dedicated to seeing students do well.

I was privileged enough to be afforded a very good private education and originally decided to take on tutoring as an opportunity to share my knowledge with others and allow them to realise their full potential and all the other benefits of a good education.

Five main factors have contributed to my success so far namely,
- I have high expectations of myself and my students, I believe every student can achieve the best grades with the right help

- I instil confidence and a "can do" attitude in students, regularly reminding them that nothing is "hard" if you have been shown how to do it properly

- I listen to students, this keeps lessons interactive and ensures I have constants update on their thought process and current understanding

- I am relatively young so students feel comfortable engaging with me and enjoy learning from me

- I ensure continuous support for students, I make myself available for questions via phone or e-mail throughout the day to ensure the support does not end at the end of the lesson!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years in this time my reliability and skill has enabled me to develop a good reputation which has allowed me to have a consistent base of 15 - 20 students on a weekly basis.

I have tutored university students attending Russell group universities such as Queen Mary and Warwick and have taught GCSEs and A-levels across all major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and iGCSE. Additionally I have had students admitted to prestigious private schools such as Eltham College and Bromley High after excelling in their 11+ exams.

Career Highlights!

- Academic Year 2011 - 2012 I helped a student who was predicted a C grade at GCSE to achieve a coveted place at Eltham College after passing a difficult 16+ exam, we then continued to work together to secure an A grade at GCSE

- Academic year 2012 - 2013 I helped a student who scored a D grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 level after 8 months of tuition. He was the only student to score an A grade in his school since 2007.

- Academic Year 2013 - 2014 I helped a student who scored a C grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 Economics with an impressive 97% in Unit 1, 99% in Unit 2 and 100% in Unit 3. He had also had three previous tutors who he was dissatisfied with before coming to me.

- Academic Year 2015 - 2016 I help a student who had achieved a B in AS Economics go on to achieve an A* in A2 Economics with a 95% average across the unit 3 and 4 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach embodies a long term approach to learning I teach students in a way which will allow them to be successful in higher education as well as their more short term exams. I also try to make students more confident in their abilities overall not just the material I teach.

I strongly believe that a solid understanding of basic principles is the foundation to success in academic study. I concentrate a lot of time and energy on instilling these basic principles in students.

I am also a strong believer in understanding over 'rope learning' I ensure that pupils understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, never encouraging them to simply regurgitate what they have seen previously.

I also encourage practical understanding of concepts frequently referencing real world examples and using objects to illustrate theory as I recognise that theory on its own given no relevance is harder to remember. Supplementary to this I also relate teaching material to potential job roles and tasks which I have knowledge of (mostly Banking or Business related) in order communicate usefulness to students and keep things interesting.

Finally I believe teaching successfully is ultimately about listening to your students I constantly encourage students to question things and express anything they don't understand or are not too sure of. If a student looks unsure or hesitant about something I will ask open questions or get them to explain concepts to me in order to fully grasp their understanding. This also helps build their confidence and ability to express themselves accurately.

Personal Description:
Hi, I`m Carmen. I am a Cambridge Graduate with a Degree in German language, literature and history. I offer fun and informative lessons in German, French and History. Whether you are aiming for exams or simply want to brush up your languages skills to make friends on holiday, I can help! I love learning new languages and understand the challenges language learners face using a range of resources and learning techniques, I aim to help you learn to love improving your languages skills too!

I can teach at my home in York or can travel to you, or meet you at a mutually convenient location in York or Leeds.

Teaching Experience:

I have French, Latin, History and German A-levels at A or A* grade and have been tutoring since I was in sixth form. have experience teaching a range of ages and am skilled at tailoring classes to your needs. I recently spent 6 months in German-speaking Namibia teaching English, German, History and Music, in individual and group classes to pupils from 7 to 18. I have also taught English as a Foreign Language to ages 8 to adult at a summer camp in Kazakhstan, and have spent 3 summers teaching at a summer camp in Texas.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that there is no one-size fits all approach to teaching and listen to my pupils to fit out what works best for them. Learning languages should be fun, so I use a range of resources and topics to engage my pupils in their language learning. I combine this with providing a detailed understanding of the grammatical mechanisms of the language, as these are vital for fluency.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£18 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated English and Media academic with a Masters Degree in English, a First Class Degree in Scriptwriting for Film and Television and a Masters Degree in Directing Digital Film & TV.

I also have a PAL certification for classroom based tutoring.

I can provide teaching in Film Studies, English (inc. GCSE, A'Level, English as a Foreign Language, Degree level and Basic and Reading and Writing skills), Communication Studies and Screenwriting.

I currently offer private tutoring, both online and in person to teenagers, college students, university students and adult learners, offering a patient and caring approach. My teaching and therefore my hourly rate is affordable as I do it for the love of the work.

As well as undertaking work for with the BBC (something the media / film students tend to be interested in) I have also worked on a number of feature films / short films, had articles published and I have won awards for my writing). Therefore, I have a considerable amount of practical and academic knowledge across the media industry, suitable for English, Film and Media Disciplines.

I really care about my students and helping them achieve their goals. I truly believe that anyone can do it if someone believes in their potential. Whether they are just starting out or if they are a mature learner. Everyone deserves to be the best they can be.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 9 years I have been providing a broad range of academic training courses and tutoring to students and adult learners in GCSE / A'level English, Digital Media and Scriptwriting, but I have also offered more basic reading / writing skills.

I currently work with a number of private students from GCSE level through to A' level and beyond, helping them achieve their goals and supporting them with the challenges that inevitably come with preparing and passing exams.

I have delivered classes to university level students, college students, school students and business owners across a wide range of disciplines.

I am always happy to provide references for my work too, so you can be assured of a great level of service.

Due to my work, I have a fully enhanced CRB check which is available for viewing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning through association with what you know, is the easiest way to tutor people of all ages. It generally helps students to identify more easily the knowledge they need to pass their exams.

Being very patient, I find it's better to adapt my tutoring to the individual, rather than apply a 'one size fits all'. This means a better success rate as different students have different strengths.

I usually like to assess learners at the beginning of meeting them / talking to them and then devise a target plan to help them achieve learning goals.

ONLINE TRAINING

At the moment, I offer English GCSE / A'Level, Media, Film Studies, English as a Foreign Language and bespoke University tutoring support, as well as reading and writing skills. I provide full support and 'real time' lessons with a clear structure. Each element is specific to the student being taught.

So if you are looking for a friendly tutor who will encourage you to speak better English or you want to tackle an essay or prepare for an exam, or you want to brush up on the basics, I can help.

I can deliver online tutoring at a time to suit you on an ad-hoc or more regular basis.

Whether you want help with GCSEs, A levels, basic skills, you would like help with media / communication studies or you would like to get to grips with some basic English, I can provide a positive and friendly approach that will actually help you and a very thorough teaching method.

FILM STUDIES

I cover the following areas:

Exploring Film
Exploring Film outside Hollywood
Exploring and creating
The 'language' of film
The organisations which produce, distribute and exhibit films and
The audiences for film.
Narrative
Film Making
Storytelling
Production

I'm an award winning writer, and media professional so am fully up-to-date with the latest techniques / syllabus requirements.

ENGLISH

Broadly speaking I cover the entire syllabus of the relevant level being studied for and the different areas in that level;

A'Level
GCSE
Literature study
Language
Grammar
Punctuation
Comprehension
Essay writing
Essay planning
English tools
Poetry study
Creative writing
Communication
Comparative analysis
Language acquisition
Basic reading
Basic writing

This list is not exhaustive but it should give you an idea.

I am particularly good with shy students or those who lack confidence.

I can travel to you within a reasonable distance at no extra cost or I can provide structured lessons online.

Should you want to use my services and you are outside of my catchment area, I can help but my hourly rate would reflect the distance / time to get to you, if it is outside of the travel radius I serve.

Personal Description:
I'm a master student from China majoring in human nutrition in Glasgow university. Before this, in my undergraduate university in China I have worked as a proofreader of dictated draft from speech records for student union. I'm good at wording and grammar. Recently I learned a little German and Arabic to experience how people speaking varies around the world and also inspired by these teachers as to how to approach to a language from 0.

Teaching Experience:

During this year I have taught a classmate mandarin from 0. He is a Scottish. However, he is keen to learn a wide variety of languages. When he found Korean and Malay easier he gave up mandarin. Such a worldwide culture vulture! Anyway, no matter you learn mandarin for culture, travel, work, yellow-face friends, curiosity, or just Chinese restaurants, you are all warmly welcome! I can teach you from the basic pronunciation which is like singing to beautiful Chinese characters which is like dancing.....

Tutoring Approach:

I'm only available from September to December 2016. I'm friendly and very patient. If you have time for homestudying I can teach more during tutorial; if not, we will practice more together to consolidate memory. Language is for communication, absolutely not for getting a high score!
Honored to be your teacher!

Personal Description:
An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, I teach Maths up to A-Levels and beyond and have been teaching for 10 years now.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher (QTS) registered with UK National College of Teaching and Leadership. I work in an outstandingly high achieving Grammar school near London.

So far I have tutored over 100 students on a 1-1 basis in the past 7 years alone. This is over 4000 hours of tutoring (40 weeks for each student a year X 100 students = 4000 hours)!

Moreover, I work as a Grammar school teacher and I am required to deliver outstanding lessons in accordance with the OFSTED Framework. Hence I have an accurate and in-depth knowledge of the most recent syllabus changes and the exam boards. That combined with my daily touch of solid Maths puts myself in a very strong position to very quickly and thoroughly assess the educational needs of a student and then build upon their strengths. My lessons are Laser sharp and objective oriented wherein I intend to achieve a very concrete goal at the end of each of my tutoring sessions.

With this immense experience, I have developed an approach which is very simple. I make the lessons fun and engaging. I try to promote interest in the subject so learning Maths becomes fun and an ongoing natural process. Students take this into the school environment and start seeing the results immediately. This reduces the burden from Maths and hence my students can focus on other subjects and achieve well holistically. (It's not about getting an A* just in Maths. I know that!!)

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching Pedagogy: The vast majority of One-2-One tutors simply 'turn-up-and-teach' without adequate preparation. Maths is mostly about 'understanding', and less about 'throw up facts'. A tutor gets ONE CHANCE to impart 'understanding' in a clear and coherent way. Not having prepared and risking an incomplete, confused or incoherent explanation instills confusion in the student, rather than confidence.

• Regular feedback and homework: Most tutors either set no homework at all or thoughtlessly set exercises from a textbook containing inappropriate questions. My homework is specifically written to complement the lesson, containing some questions designed for routine practice and some questions designed to challenge the student; encouraging them to 'think' and to develop their logical capacity.

• Exam Practice: I give students plenty of past paper practice - but only at the right time, once they have a deep understanding of all of the individual topics within the syllabus. Far too many tutors use exam papers to 'teach' from, which means they are setting papers when the student isn't ready: The upshot of that is the student's scores fluctuate wildly and their confidence is destroyed.
The lessons are invigorating, inspirational and cutting edge as I keep a very thorough hold on my subject.

Personal Description:
My name is Davínia and I am a Spanish language assistant (MLA) in Aberdeenshire. I am from Alicante (Spain) and I am a native bilingual speaker of Spanish and Catalan. Moreover, I have the C2-Proficiency level of English (certified by Cambridge University).

Regarding my qualifications, I am a fully-qualified teacher of English as a foreign language in Spain since I have the equivalent title to the PGCE by the University of Alicante (Spain). I have also certificates by the University of Alicante, the International University Menéndez Pelayo and the Pennsylvania State University that show my experience and knowledge teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

Previously, I gained my M.A. in Applied Linguistics and Language Acquisition in Multilingual Contexts at the Universitat de Barcelona. Here I developed my knowledge about bilingual and multilingual education and societies, Sociolinguistics, languages in contact, methodology and statistics. Moreover, I specialized in Educational Sociolinguistics with my M.A. Thesis "From Primary to Secondary School: a Case Study of Changes in Language Attitudes among Students of the Bilingual Programs in Alacant". Results and conclusions of this M.A. Thesis have been presented in several international congresses (AESLA, 1st International Congress on Bilingual Education at the University of Cordoba, XVI International Congress from the Spanish Society of Language and Literatura Didactics among others).

I also received graduate education in Hispanic Linguistics at the Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA) where I learned everything related to Phonology, Syntax and First Language Acquisition. Finally, I got my BA in English Philology at the University of Alicante (Spain) majoring in Linguistics and Catalan.

In my free time, I love swimming, watching TV shows and films as well as going to the theatre to enjoy plays and musicals.

I am willing to travel around Aberdeen city and the surrounding areas of Cults, Peterculter and Banchory.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working as a Spanish language assistant at two high schools in Aberdeenshire (Scotland) and I am also in charged of the Spanish Club for the staff members of one of the high schools.

I also worked as a teacher or English as a foreign language at the private academy Climbing English Centre (Alicante) where I gained experience teaching English to people of any age range: from babies who were 2 years old up to elderly people who were 60/70 going through teenagers who were between 13 up to 18 years old or adults trying to get official certificates from Cambridge University and TRINITY. I also offered private lessons to students in primary, secondary and post-secondary education.

Moreover, as part of my teaching qualification, I did my internship of teaching English as a foreign language ate the bilingual state high school IES San Vicente (San Vicente del Raspeig, Alicante).

As part of my experience at Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA), I received teaching instruction and worked as a Spanish lecturer in basic and intermediate undergraduate Spanish courses.

Finally, I also worked as au pair in Oxfordshire (England). I was in charged of three siblings who were 13, 10 and 9. I had to take care of them, entertain them and teach Spanish as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

All my personal experiences learning and teaching foreign languages have shown me the important role that teachers, language assistants and tutors play in a classroom setting and, specially, in the long journey of learning a new language.

Furthermore, being a language learner for so many years has given me the ability to predict and to overcome difficulties that students may have in the process of acquiring a language.

Additionally, I believe that a language is linked to cultural aspects which enrich it and make it more interesting. This is why I look for resources that transmit the vast culture that Spanish carries and I try to create didactic materials that appeal to students' interests so as to keep them motivated and interested. I usually introduce the content and then the students have to solve a task (task-based teaching).

Based on the previous ideas, I feel working as a tutor would provide me with the perfect setting to develop my teaching skills and I am willing to contribute to my total commitment and enthusiasm to the teaching of my own culture, my two native languages and English as a foreign language.
I am also looking for new challenges in the work and research world so as to keep learning and gaining professional experience.
