Personal Description:
I trained to be a teacher at the University of Cambridge's Faculty of Education in 2008 and since then have been teaching full-time in secondary schools. My motivating style of teaching English, French, German and Spanish leads to enjoyment and achievement amongst students. As a result, learners I have taught have achieved above-average GCSE results while younger pupils have opted to study languages in high numbers. I am proud to be equipping the nation's future workforce with the language and communication skills necessary to vie in an increasingly competitive globalised environment. I also teach violin and theory of music up to Grade 5.

Please be advised that my prices per hour are inclusive of travel to the student's home. If you would like to be taught in my home, please deduct five pounds from my advertised price.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated Teaching Professional, with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 25 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults, interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals, as well as communicating inside the family.

My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.

I tend to focus in improving spoken fluency and listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition as part of the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.

I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results of good communication between both parties and learner assessment throughout the course.

Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and supporting the students in improving their skills.

I can ensure fast and excellent results.

Personal Description:
I am a highly successful teacher of English Language and Literature with thirty years` experience as both a schoolteacher and a provider of personal tuition. I am supportive and approachable, and tailor my teaching carefully to the individual student`s needs. I have experience of teaching a very wide range of literature texts set by different examination boards, and also act as a marker for AQA at AS level. I offer tuition at a variety of levels

Teaching Experience:

I taught English from 1985 onwards at King Edward VI School for Girls, Handsworth, Birmingham and have worked extensively with both boys and girls for several years at a number of independent tutorial colleges in Birmingham

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in differentiation: my teaching methods will aim to accommodate the needs of the individual student as well as the specified requirements of the examination board within which he or she is aiming to succeed. I have a long established reputation for nurturing successful working relationships with my students

Personal Description:
I am very passionate about the teaching and learning of maths and endeavour to ignite the same enthusiasm in those I teach.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified maths teacher currently in my fifth year teaching at an outstanding school in Grays, Essex.

Tutoring Approach:

Working in an outstanding secondary school provides me with the experience of working with large classes and small groups. The benefits of one-to-one tuition are clear as each student receives more dedicated time and attention with the lesson tailored to their specific weaknesses.

I believe a strong grasp of methodology is the key to gaining a deeper understanding of maths and far outweighs just getting specific questions 'right'.

Personal Description:
Hello there! My name is Tanyel and I am an undergraduate student at King's College London. I study BA French and Management and will be entering my second year in September.

I am available to tutor over the summer 2013 starting immediately, with a possibility of continuing this for when I am back at university.

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide range of tutoring experience. This originated from when I was in Sixth Form and developed a knack for explaining things to my classmates and friends. Since then, my enjoyment in tutoring has led me to be involved in two tutoring projects. This is both privately in my local area and also voluntarily, the latter being with my university and an organisation called Team Up ().

Tutoring Approach:

We would work through a main textbook (CGP range seems to work best) and I provide explanations in a clearer, more interactive manner to clarify understanding. I then set homework tasks based on what we have learnt. I can connect with all my students on a friendly level in this way, pausing to answer any questions, whilst ensuring progression and focus at all times. I have seen this approach work countless times in my experience. In some cases, students enjoy it so much they ask me to set them even more homework!

Personal Description:
I have just graduated from Cambridge with First Class Honours in Law. I have a good academic background and achieved A's in all of my A-Levels (Law, History, Politics).

Teaching Experience:

I have always helped friends and family out and tutored them on an informal basis. I also have experience helping in a primary school classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

Very informal and relaxed, I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable. No question is too stupid and I'll never make anyone feel bad for not knowing the answers. Everyone learns differently and finding out the best way for you to learn is key. Everyone wants to pass their exams so obviously a key focus will be on exam technique and helping to perfect this by going over past papers together.

Personal Description:
I am currently working with the University of Manchester on a commercial project as a Structural Mechanics Engineer. My education details are as follows:

PhD Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering (2014)

Degree (First class honours): BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (2009)

HSSC: Mathematics (A+), Physic (A) (2005)
SSC: Mathematics (A+), Physic (A+) (2003)

Teaching Experience:

I have formal teaching experience as I have been giving the tutorial lectures at Loughborough University to engineering undergraduates and also I have tutored the physics and mathematics to number of GCSE and A-levels students.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which students feel more confident to raise questions. I like to listen to my students being at their level to address and identify the basic difficulties that they face in understanding the subjects. I try to involve the students in problem solving and present the subjects in an interesting manner with the help of useful hints that are often helpful to provoke the original thought in order to improve their analytical skills. I find myself committed and patient and I believe that such teaching skills make me ideal for tutoring. I often highlight the practical implications of the subjects where possible so that the students could relate the subjects to their future careers. I would be willing to concentrate on the specific areas that the student requests. The focus of my approach is to prepare the students for the exams by developing the analytical thinking in order to solve the problems. The deeper understanding of the mathematical sciences could only be achieved through the intensive practice.

I give writing tasks to do as a homework and I mark them outside the lesson time to maximise the learning during lesson time.

I offer enjoyable lessons to all levels and I offer extensive out of lesson support providing my learners with activities to do in their free time and recordings of words for them to practice their pronunciation. I also give them links to web pages to further develop their knowledge of the language.

I also offer support for DELE exams and any other exam.

Personal Description:
School year 15/16 reflection: This was a fantastic year, as I saw all five of my students succeed, either achieving their grade or even better, exceeding it. Also well done to one student that was really struggling with her entrance exams but has passed and is now one step closer to becoming a teacher! I have had some great feedback and learnt many new learning techniques which will enable me to have an even better 16/17 year! Apply now for the coming year!

Hello!! Are you looking for an intensive revision session before a daunting exam? Or are you looking for long term assistance through an academic year? If so then look no further! I am currently studying Medicine at the University of Liverpool, having already achieved a first class honours degree in Biomedical Science. This interest in Science stems from three A levels (grades A's and B's) in Biology, Chemistry and Maths with all my exams passed at GCSE level. This passion for life sciences has enabled me to gain knowledge in various areas of science and I am offering to tutor you/your child to help achieve similar goals. Studying medicine allows me to keep up with ever changing research whilst maintaining the basics learnt throughout school. Aside from my academic life, I am a keen rugby player, play the piano and socialise with friends.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my university life it has always been encouraged to teach our peers through case based learning and PowerPoint presentations. Therefore I have taught to individuals, but also to small groups and even whole classrooms. On the other end of the scale, I have tutored Maths to a year 6 pupil that was struggling to make the grades in this one subject, and by the end of the year she was competing with top of the class. I have also taught English in Asia to students aged 4-18. I am sure you will agree that this is a diverse range of experience but makes me confident that I could be a suitable candidate for you or someone you wish to be tutored. I have also been part of a University society which aids in teaching medicine to younger people hoping to take such a career path later on in life.

Tutoring Approach:

Having tutored people as young as key stage 2, I am able to adapt to the needs of the Tutee and instead of enforcing my learning techniques upon a person; I gauge the needs and learning styles of the individual which allows them to develop their own skills whilst trying new ones. Personally, I like the use of short, concise notes (flash card style) and colourful posters which enable me to visualise my notes in an exam. However, I understand this is not suitable for all people and would be more than happy for tutee's to make extensive notes. Having performed research and undertaking multiple entrance exams (GAMSAT, UKCAT) I have learnt to quick read which I can also teach. I can also help with University style interviews (especially medicine) if necessary. My teaching style is very informal (within reason) as I believe that strict lessons can often be counterproductive.

Personal Description:
I am a biological researcher at UCL with experience of teaching at various levels from early secondary to university standards. My career choice intersects my interest in the sciences and teaching as I am regularly required to mentor new employees. I have a calm demeanor and friendly attitude with a range of interests both academic and creative allowing me to approach and solve problems from various angles.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at various levels from secondary school entrance exams up to and including university level mathematics and chemistry. These have been in the majority on a one-to-one basis and occasionally in small groups of two and three.

Tutoring Approach:

My usual approach starts with discussing the general areas with which the student requires help and proceeding to identify key problems that require focus to increase core understanding. Teaching would proceed with breaking down the problem and explaining the process step by step. Explanation can be particularly adapted to suit the style of learning that best aids the student.
Following comprehension, the core knowledge would be reinforced through example problems both set by myself and from exams to increase the student's confidence. Formatting of answers would be additionally discussed and practiced to maximize exam effectiveness.
Short, topical homework may occasionally be set to further reinforce learning and enable the student to self-identify further areas of weakness that can be discussed and remedied thus guiding in-depth tailored teaching.
Sessions can be adapted to focus on core knowledge or exam technique as per the student's requirements.
I am passionate about sciences and believe that anyone willing to learn will make progress once they have found their core confidence and learning styles, success breeds success.
