APPROACH TO TUITION

Tailoring tuition to suit the student
The advantage of one-to-one tuition is that I can assess what specific needs a student has, and organise my lessons around those needs. Some students need essay technique help some have a specific set of topics they want to go over others might need an entire course taught to them as they have left school or are being home educated.

Knowing the syllabus
All GCSEs and A Levels follow a national syllabus, and I know them all very well. In my first lesson with any student I will make sure they are aware of the overall requirements of the syllabus, on a topic-by-topic basis. I will always stick to what the student needs to know to pass that particular syllabus I do not needlessly make students learn things they do not need to know.

Digital handouts
In my years of tuition, I have built up a cloud-based digital archive of hundreds of handouts. Say a student is learning about arguments for the existence of God for RS A Level - I have handouts very clearly outlining the Ontological, Teleological and Cosmological arguments and all relevant criticisms. These handouts are a great extra help alongside my teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have thousands of hours of tuition experience, having taught hundreds of students. I have dozens of letters of recommendation. Some of the specific subjects I have taught include:

Government & Politics (Edexcel and OCR)
Cambridge Pre-U Theology & Philosophy
Philosophy A Level (AQA, OCR and Edexcel)
Religious Studies (OCR, AQA and Edexcel) GCSE, A Level
Sociology (AQA) AS and A2
Theology and Religious Studies at degree level (I have helped six different students receive good grades for third year RS dissertations)
Oxbridge applications and interview practice

I have a written reference from a doctor of Philosophy and college chaplain at Cambridge University, as well as an excellent reference from my full-time tutoring placement for the last year.

Extracts from letters of recommendation (all available in full on request):

"Incredibly reliable and professional...James' superior knowledge and passion for his subject resulted in my son gaining both in confidence and ability and led him to succeed in achieving a Distinction grade when his school had predicted a Merit."
Mother of Pre-U student, 2013.

"James's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend James highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"A great source of help to my daughter over the past two years; making smooth preparations for her to retake her AS level, alongside her continuing work towards her A level. He contributed invaluably towards her outstanding AS level pass mark of 100% . For her A2, Olivia received an A."
Mother of Philosophy A Level (AQA) Candidate, 2012/13.

"James was an excellent tutor. He explained complex ideas clearly and tailored his tutoring to suit my son. Importantly, he acted as a strong motivator and made sure rigourous revision notes were made... humourous, friendly and a good natured motivator. My son received an A*".
Mother of GCSE Religious Studies student (OCR), 2012/13.

"He immediately established a very good working relationship with my daughter which encouraged her to really engage with the subject and plan and think about the topics in depth. He helped her with the structure of her essays and how to build up a coherent and well thought out argument...I would highly recommend James as a Philosophy tutor."
Mother of Religious Studies (OCR) student, 2012/13.

"Jame's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend Jame's highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"James was very familiar with the curriculum and both his discussions with my son and the work set were of an appropriate and challenging level, set work was always marked and discussed at the following tutorial. My son received a good Distinction in his exams."
Mother of Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), 2013.

"My daughter was unable to attend school due to illness, and so James was entirely responsible for her preparation. She received a Distinction in her exams. James was a diligent tutor, who managed to convey this difficult subject with a lightness of touch. I know that my daughter enjoyed her lessons enormously, and that she found it easy to learn from James. He not only imparted the necessary knowledge but also inspired her with confidence."
Mother of homeschooled Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), who I taught the entire syllabus to in 2012/13.

"James was brilliant. Despite tutoring my two twin daughters at the same time, he adapted his teaching style to suit both of them differently. He made the whole course much easier for them to understand than they had found at school. Beyond this, he boosted their confidence and increased their essay writing skills. He provided a large amount of digital handouts which they also found useful. Both girls ended up with very high As in all the topics he taught them in."
Mother of twin daughters taught in Religious Studies (OCR) and Philosophy (AQA), 2012/13.

"...James covered far more content than the school had taught in a whole year and to a greater depth and understanding. His knowledge of the syllabus and ability to explain complex philosophical arguments and content, in a way that my daughter could understand, was second to none... put back a confidence in my daughter that had been partly destroyed in this subject due to poor teaching at school. I have never seen my daughter so relaxed and happy after taking an exam than she was after re-taking these two."
Mother of homeschooled candidate in Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2012/13.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student, undertaking my doctorate in Environmental Sciences, with a focus on soil nutrient cycling and nutrient transport to surface and ground waters. I completed my BSc in Physical Geography at the University of Exeter and gained first class honours in this.

Teaching Experience:

I carried out teacher training at a basic level with the University of Exeter in order to participate in the Students Associates Scheme. After this training I spent three weeks in a local secondary school where I actively participated in Geography and Religious Studies lessons, and was able to provide work plans for higher and lower achieving students. I also worked closely with students that had special educational needs.
I also have experience in teaching sports to groups of young children.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at the secondary school I found that I produced good results working one-to-one with students, particularly with students that were struggling to understand concepts or were having difficulty with the teaching style being used in the classroom. I am patient, focussed and willing to work hard to enable a tutee to achieve their goals.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am in my forties and I live in Worthing. I specialise in teaching English as a foreign language. I welcome teaching both individuals and small groups with everyday, educational or business English.

I enjoy travelling, meeting new people and learning about other countries. I have just returned from teaching English in Japan for four years, which I loved.

I also have experience working in both education and business in the UK. I was a primary school teacher for eight years and worked in insurance for 11 years.

Teaching Experience:

-I taught Keys Stage 1 and 2 for eight years in an East London primary school. The majority of which did not speak English regularly at home.
-I carried out training on technical insurance issues as part of my job with the insurance company.
-I taught English in two of Japan's well known English conversation schools (ECC and AEON). I worked with students ages ranging from 18 months to 70+ at all levels from beginner to advanced. I also did some work in a few Japanese kindergartens and some summer relief work in a local Worthing language school (CES).

Tutoring Approach:

I like lessons to be fun and the students to feel relaxed. The needs of the students comes first as everyone is different.

After an initial assessment ,I agree with the tutee a lesson progress plan. The lessons will have a clear goal and will relate to real life wherever possible.

Please note that all lessons with children should be at their home with a responsible adult present or available.

Personal Description:
My name is Daniele and I am originally from Rome. I have more than 15 years experience as Italian language coach/teacher in the world of opera: I hold a permanent teaching post at the Royal College of Music and coach regularly at the Royal Opera House. I have also worked, amongst other institutions, at Paris Opera, Opéra de Lille, Opera North, Scottish Opera, Welsh National Opera, and the Royal Academy of Music.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced Italian language teacher, and teach private one to one lessons either in Hackney, where I am based, or at the Royal College of Music in South Kensington.
I teach students of all ages, levels and aspirations.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor the lessons to meet the student's needs, ability and aspirations.
When possible I try to follow a textbook, as I think this gives a good structure to our courses. The student would be expected to do some homework between lessons, as this is hugely beneficial to learning.
The aim is to enable the student to 1) read and understand Italian, 2) speak and express oneself, 3) write and 4) understand when listening.
The atmosphere is friendly and informal.

Subjects
  • Italian

I am an enthusiastic and friendly teacher and enjoy tutoring for children with special or medical needs during the day and providing extra support for children who need it in the evenings. I have a complete and current DBS certificate and currently work as a tutor on a freelance basis and for Worcestershire County Council.

I qualified as a Key Stage 2/3 Teacher with Maths Subject Specialism from Homerton College, Cambridge in 2002. I have gained a variety of teaching experience both in mainstream and special needs as well as home tutoring. I worked for 8 years at a school for children with behavioural and emotional difficulties and have experience with ADHD, Autistic Spectrum and Attachment Disorder. I have done a lot of work with children in the Looked After System.
I have been a Grade A Maths SATs Marker since 2004 and enjoy marking the SATs Papers every summer.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed but efficient approach to tutoring and I have enjoyed positive feedback from pupils and parents. I expect my pupils to put their best effort into the sessions to make the most of our time together and I am happy to set homework tasks if required.

View Matthew's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am currently studying for a Master's Degree in Creative Writing at the University of Surrey, and applying for my PhD in the same subject, having completed a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing & Philosophy. I am a highly experienced writer, avid reader, and keen researcher. Above and beyond my academic pursuits, I believe strongly in being courteous, professional, and well-dressed at all times, living by the adage that a man is never properly dressed without a tie.

Teaching Experience:

I have a long history of teaching which began when I was studying for my A-levels, teaching judo to primary school children. I also led and taught a Creative Writing society at Alton College before I moved on to my undergraduate degree, a role within which I oversaw the publication of an anthology of student writing. During the latter years of my Bachelor's Degree, I taught creative writing, narration, and game design to younger students on an informal basis, and served as president of the university's PSiFA society. In that role I managed a society of over one hundred members, led meetings, gave speeches, and organised logistics. Now, I am looking to tutor privately while I work full-time on my Master's.

Tutoring Approach:

When it comes to learning, I believe that the most effective method is to teach through example and practice. Learning lists of facts by rote is a poor method, and all too common in education these days. I believe that students learn best when they are actively engaging in the subject, by writing their own work, assessing and identifying their own mistakes, and relying on the guidance and advice provided by a tutor rather than being lectured. Most people retain knowledge and learn best when they do things for themselves. In writing specifically, imagination should be encouraged and developed, and I specialise in three core areas; workshopping through written exercises (having the student write short pieces aimed at developing certain areas, and then assessing them through discussion), combining research with writing (learning research skills and showing how they can be applied to improving the student's writing), and planning & structure (to create effective work methods).

Personal Description:
I am a Geography student at UEA; my subject puts me in contact with both sides of education; from the sciences and mathematics to literature and philosophy. I am a kind, patient person who does his best to help others succeed. I am 18 and in my first year which puts me relatively close in age to GSCE students which allows me to connect with them more and therefore teach better.

Teaching Experience:

I have done work experience in a Primary School which taught me a lot about the practicalities of teaching. It was here I learned I had a knack for encouraging others to work and supporting them with their studies. I have been asked throughout my education to help my peers, which has given me the skills to support others with work they do not understand or need support with.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning should be made as fun and applicable as possible - which is where school fails. The best way to engage someone is to put what you are trying to teach them into "their language". Maths for its own sake is easy to take as dull and pointless, but showing someone that you can use it in a way that they find interesting and relevant makes them more likely to engage. This is true for any subject, and is difficult to do with a class of 30 but much easier to do one to one.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!
I am a fully qualified, native French teacher (PGCE from the University of Portsmouth, Summer 1994).
I am married with two older children, themselves going through examinations at the moment. I also have four cats.

Teaching Experience:

I came to the UK in 1993, started teaching in a school in Sept. 1994 and teaching privately in 1998.
I no longer teach at a school but instead, teach privately to individuals or small groups.

I have been an examiner for AQA since 1998 so I am very aware of the skills and knowledge required by examination boards. I am currently a team leader for French GCSE and an examiner for A2.

I have taught a wide range of students over the years: KS3, GCSE and A Level, adult learners, younger children and adults in a business environment.

Tutoring Approach:

What I enjoy the most is to see people make big improvements and become confident with their French, from the moment they start to understand how the language works.
I am a good communicator and feel that I can understand people`s difficulties quickly so we can work on those aspects and start to make progress, once the foundations have been put (back) in place.

I am a dedicated, hard working and well organised person who enjoys seeing her pupils do well and (re)gain confidence.
I plan all my lessons very methodically and provide all papers / worksheets to my pupils. I also set homework and, more importantly, mark it! Very often, pupils will email me to ask me to check a piece of writing / homework that they are working on, and I am happy to help them with this too.
