Personal Description:
I want to do research in sub-field of Quantum mechanics and am keen to go in research to a further level in String Theory. I have a lucid way of explaining the subject.
I am always being updated and upgraded to the knowledge of physics. It's my hobby, rather than an interest, to teach the Physics to A level and UG students.

Teaching Experience:

Currently I am A-Level Lecturer for Physics and Maths in Capital City academy.
Working as Physics & Maths Tutor
I have worked for four years as Physics teacher in school.
I have worked with three institutions as a Physics lecturer.
I worked as Physics Lab Co-ordinator.
I am supporting as STEM ambassadoring.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is much better than being a teacher in school, because tutor provides a groom and sufficient time to interact with students to solve their queries.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a well qualified, BA, MPhil, PGCE teacher who is looking to branch out into more private tutoring work. I have privately tutored for many years and have experience since 1996. I have taught at all key stages and enjoy my work thoroughly. Last year (2016) my A level tutees all raised their grades by at least one and have gone off to uni. Proud to add that one in particular achieved an A* in Geography A level.
Please note that my rates are based on one to one tuition. Should you wish me to tutor groups of two or more either at home or in school I am happy to do so but rates will need to be discussed prior to my commencing work.
I now have experience of working on the E Bacc and depth studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught to A level in History for adult ed from 1998-2006
I have taught Geography to GCSE-level and A level
History in school at KS 3 and 4 AS and A level
I can also teach basic geology and archaeology and classical studies.
Classical Civilisation to A level

Tutoring Approach:

I am always keen to engage students in whatever subject they are studying. I believe in being supportive and constructive in all that I teach. I am currently working on a one-to-one project with a student with special needs.
An excellent set of results (2015) all my 10 students passed, all raised their grade levels by at least one letter. All those off to uni are about to go so I wish them all well. Three others have a year or two left at school and have asked me to tutor them over the required time span.

Personal Description:
I am a highly experienced Maths tutor, geared toward ensuring you get the best exam grades possible in your field. I will increase your understanding of maths, and my explanations are simple and straightforward. Alongside tutoring, I will guide you through exam techniques, and common pitfalls.

Teaching Experience:

6 years private tutor. 4 years private tutor in Maths 1, Maths 2, and Mechanics of Materials of University's courses.
2 years experiences in GCSE and A Level Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching strategy usually involves engaging the student in critical thinking early on, as I believe this is the key to understanding, and I will never "tell" a student what he should do, or why this is like that, but to direct his thinking so that he/she understands why this is the way it is, and why should he/she act that way. I do not believe in memorisation being the main way of teaching in some countries, as this usually does not prepare people for university and life in general, specially in science and maths. Of course, there's always a degree of memorisation in every subject, but I try to keep it to a minimum. This also depends on every student, and I ultimately asses my strategy individually for each student.

  • 11+ (secondary) (15 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a French native speaker, really enthusiastic about teaching my language. I spent all my childhood in France and went to university in France studying English, Spanish and Italian as part of my degree. I have a passion for languages and I am currently teaching myself Russian. I moved to England six years ago to do a Masters in Education and Modern Foreign Languages. I then fell in love with London and decided to become a teacher in England.

Teaching Experience:

I did my teacher training (PGCE) in Modern Foreign languages, at King's College, in London and I am now in charge of the French department in a highly prestigious private school. I have been teaching French from year 7 to A-level for six years and I have also taught French in a local primary school to younger children.

I offer weekly online or face-to-face lessons to young children, teenagers and students who wish to perfect their language skills.
If you need to make the transition from Y6 to Y7, I will be able to provide you with the right basics!
If you want to start a new language course, you will not be on your own! I will guide you through the course and prepare you for the exam with well-prepared and engaging lessons.
How can you start A-level French if you feel that you are not confident to speak and you have some problems with grammar? Come and speak to me and you will be ready to start a brilliant academic year!
You have a French exam in a few weeks? Don't panic, we will work to get these few extra marks you need or simply revise so you feel confident the day of the exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an active teaching approach which means that I have a range of exciting activities and games which make French enjoyable to learn.
The lessons are mainly in the target language and I firmly believe that even grammar can be taught in a fun way. If you are looking for someone with teaching experience who knows the exams and what schools require then I am the right tutor for you.

I also offer intensive revision classes weekly before the exam period for CE, Scholarship exams, GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A2 French.

***I am willing to come to you if you live in the Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Highgate area for a one-to-one or group lesson.

*** All my online lessons take place using the Wiziq virtual classroom which allows you to have access to all the course materials live and interact with me during the class. It is also an enjoyable way to learn a language and get the most out of your tutoring time. It is very interactive and fun! No hidden fees and no lesson time wasted.

My fees:

35 an hour for a one-to-one lesson
25 an hour for an online lesson
50 an hour for a group of 2 or 3 students

*5% discount if you book 5 classes in one go.
*10% discount if you book 10 classes in one go.
*50% off the first TRIAL lesson.

All payments are made securely via Paypal.

Thank you for the interest :-)

Personal Description:
A computer science graduate and former software engineer that got out of the 'rat-race' in 2001 to develop my then hobby teaching martial arts into a professional career. I now run a very successful Academy teaching martial arts, self protection, and personal development to students of all ages.

Having established the school I had the time to develop my photography to the point when in 2011 I gained a distinction from the Royal Photographic Society, and now I also spend some of my time as a professional photographer too, focussing mainly on teaching others, both individuals and group workshops.

Teaching Experience:

General:
In my former career as a software developer I was also responsible for writing technical documentation and running training courses worldwide. I'm very comfortable with planning, organising and delivering courses up to a very high standard.

Photography:
As a photographer I have been teaching now for about 5 years, I run workshops for all levels, and also individual one-to-one training tailored to students from complete novices up to those approaching Royal Society standard.

Martial Arts:
I'm a high-ranking martial arts instructor (6th degree black belt with 30 years experience) and have been teaching now for well over 20 years, with students of all ages from 5 up to those in their 60's. Alongside my own school I teach courses and seminars to groups of all sizes. I've taught in schools, worked with police and youth groups etc. I often teach private lessons to individuals, both from my own school and those with no prior experience.

Life Coaching:
Having successfully escaped the rat-race to pursue my own goals it's fair to say I've learned a lot about personal development. I've also completed a number of courses and seminars with world-class coaches such as Anthony Robbins. I now share this experience with a number of private clients for personal development and life coaching to help them with motivation, goals and productivity in their own careers.

I have a current DBS (CRB) check and can provide references relating to all aspects of my coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly, informal and always tailored to the specific needs of the individual.

Happy to chat about your individual requirements prior to booking so please get in touch with any questions :-)

If you're looking for photography, business or personal development coaching I'm happy to chat on the phone, skype or obviously to meet in person (I do charge travelling if you're not coming to me).

Self defence coaching obviously needs to be in person, and there are with minimum training requirements to ensure we can cover enough basic skills.

Personal Description:
Playing the Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo and Harmonica and creating traditional Fine Art have been and are a major part of my life. Much as I would have very much liked to do, I never had the opportunity to become a Professional Performing Musician or a fully Professional Fine Artist . I have performed in public of course, and held exhibitions, but very rarely on a professional/paid basis. I have been a guitarist for over 45 years and an artist for 23 years

I studied art at the Thanet Schools of Art & the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design (the same College David Bowie went to)
for two and a half years. After that I had a twenty two year absence from art.

A change came in 1992: It was during a period of Long Term Unemployment. Whilst signing on at my local Job Center, I volunteered to go on an "Employment Action Course. In a sense this was a form of working for your benefit and was paid an extra 10 per week on top of Job Seekers Allowance. Hopefully this would have lead to work prospects, ideally in Art or The Arts. I had to report to a work placement provider who asked me what skills I had, to which I said "Art" and was assigned to a local Community Arts Center based in Gillingham Kent and appointed as a publicity designer and resources worker.

Whilst in my publicity artist role I was introduced to the then K.C.C Arts Promotion Officer Jim Shean who took interest in my art work and arranged an exhibition hire space without charge at my local library, the event was covered on Radio Kent's "Scene & Heard" Program. I also contacted the local junior school where my children attended and made a proposition if I could exhibit there. In return the headmaster asked my to come into the School twice a week and teach the children art, this featured in a local press article.

Over the years from 1992 to date I have held numerous small one man exhibitions in the Medway Towns and a little further afield and have manged to sell some (just enough to pay a few bills). In the last year or so I have been a little inactive in my art but hope to resolve that soon.

Teaching Experience:

16 years freelance one to one teaching of Guitar - Mandolin - Banjo - Ukulele - Harmonica and Basic Keyboard
Currently a Children s reading assistant for the Beanstalk Charity Project

Tutoring Approach:

Being a music teacher has at least allowed me to put my love of music to a measure of professional application, perhaps to make up for the lost opportunity and time. Being paid is a motivation, but far more importantly teaching others to play and create music is much more enjoyable, I have often gone overtime on my lessons and never charged extra. Also to be considered is the experience gained over many decades of musical struggling, mistakes, embarrassing moments during performance and how to overcome them that I can impart to my pupils. I also look forward to the pupil making sufficient progress so that I can have the pleasure to "Jam" with them.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and very experienced primary school teacher who loves working with children to help them achieve the best they possibly can. I can provide you with a reliable, friendly and flexible service supporting your child with maths, reading, writing, phonics or speaking and listening. I treat each child as an individual and aim to make each tuition session enjoyable and successful, connecting the learning with your child's interests where possible, and always giving plenty of encouragement and praise.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified teacher who has taught locally in primary education for 21 years before more recently starting to home tutor children. I have successfully taught children with a wide range of abilities, children with special educational needs and children learning English as an additional language.

I have also had responsibility for leading the teaching of English across the year groups (speaking and listening, reading, writing and phonics).

Tutoring Approach:

I would come to your home for the tuition sessions, providing a familiar setting for your child's learning on a one to one basis.

Current parents and pupils with whom I work testify to my friendly, high quality professional approach and the difference that I can make. All tuition is specifically tailored to each child to help build their confidence whilst being as creative as possible to help them enjoy their learning. In this way I will also guide your child through the steps needed to improve their understanding and to gain confidence in their knowledge, skills and abilities.

Tutoring is available for children being homeschooled as well as for children requiring a little extra help out of school hours - term time and during school holidays.

Personal Description:
I am a University of Liverpool graduate. Having decided to teach I trained at the University of Birmingham completing a Mathematics Subject Knowledge Enhancement year followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Education. I enjoy my job and love seeing pupils realise and achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

Since qualifying university I have since had two years experience teaching at an Outstanding school in Merseyside, teaching a range of 11-18 year olds. My pupils have achieved excellent results, especially those targeting A and A* grades.

Tutoring Approach:

The approach I take towards tutoring is a focus on defining on the needs of the tutee. Few students are afforded the opportunity to have one on one time with a classroom teacher in their specialist subject and if specific areas are identified and worked on the benefits are huge.

Personal Description:
Reliable and qualified Maths Teacher with 20+ years of experience of tutoring individuals and groups.

I care deeply about teaching and learning in general and the teaching of mathematics is a particular passion for me. I am a secondary school mathematics teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have completed a BSc in Accounting, an ACCA qualification and a PGCE course. I am currently studying for my MSc Education degree. I have 20+ years experience as a tutor and 10+ years as a teacher. I have also worked for an acounting firm for 5 years and worked as a company director for 7 years.

My first session is provided free of charge and I use this session to understand the needs of prospective pupils. At the end of the session, I have a frank and honest discussion with the pupil and/or their guardians. I use these conversations to listen to the concerns of the pupils and/or their guardians and present an outline of my assessment of the student's areas of strengths and weaknesses. I also suggest a course of action to help the pupil move forward.

Teaching Experience:

I have been providing tuition in mathematics for over 20 years and have been a secondary school Mathematics Teacher for over 10 years. I have tutored A Level, university, AAT, CAT, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA students in accounting for over 10 years and have 5 years experience teaching professioanl accounting courses in private colleges. I have experience teaching to individual students, to small groups and to classes of up to 35 students. I have helped four year old pupils take their first steps in arithmetic and forty plus year old students finally understand how algebra works. In accounting I have worked with 16 year olds studying accounting for the first time for A Levels or CAT or AAT and 40+ year olds who have working in accounting for a long time and are studying for their professional exams.

I have helped students gain confidence in their own mathematical ability when they have been convinced by the academic system that they are incapable of doing well in the subject. I have also helped higher attaining students to challenge themselves and aspire to become even better. Most recently my Year 7 students were the only gold medallists in the UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge in my secondary school. They did considerably better than all the other Year 7 students and even all the Year 8 students in the school who sat the same exam.

Tutoring Approach:

During the last two decades I have worked with many hundreds of students and have read research studies from academics around the world on the subject of attainment in mathematics. My own experience is in keeping with all the studies I have read about this topic. The overwhelming majority of students can do well in mathematics provided they have the confidence, the techniques and willingness to work hard. Even after only six to eight weeks of tuition, all the students I have tutored have improved by at least one grade or one level.

I tell all prospective pupils there is no magic bullet or shortcut. To achieve success in mathematics a few things are key: understanding the concept well; understanding when and how to apply it in different situations; lots of practice in applying it in different scenarios and short, regular revision sessions. So my only pre-conditions before I agree to work with any student are: a positive attitude; a commitment to put in the time and effort required to bring about the improvement in their grades; and at least one ninety minute session every week.

It is important to me that students should enjoy mathematics and look forward to their sessions with me. To ensure this I use a variety of different resources to explain concepts to students and am a firm believer in using physical and computer based study tools and aides to complement the standard oral and written tools used to teach mathematics. I also believe in linking the mathematics that we study to the real world to increase students' engagement with the topic and their understanding of its relevance. I am very patient and empathetic to my student's needs and once they develop in confidence I encourage all my students to challenge themselves regularly. Depending on the amount of time available, I usually help students cement their mastery of the foundations of arithmetic and algebra before moving on to establish fluency in statistics, geometry and problem solving.
