Personal Description:
Of Jamaican and Bahamian origin, I am a very down to earth, practical person with very solid communication and interpersonal skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have proven, academic and professional experience in Teacher Education (over 15 years) at primary and secondary level and both at mixed and same-sex schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is adapted to the requirements and the level of the tutee. I do not believe in a rigid approach (unless this is required), but aim to provide the best form of teaching that matches the tutee's preferred form of learning.

I am a very patient tutor, breaking down subjects to make topics accessible to every type and level of learner. . I utilise tried and tested techniques to encourage confidence and promote independent learning.

I have observed many different teaching styles to form a practical working knowledge of the best method to achieve optimum results from each student.

I promote a positive learning environment at all times to increase productivity and motivate students.

I will help develop study skills and habits when there isn't anyone else around to help students out. I will regularly evaluate students' progress in order to see where improvements can be made as well as regularly evaluate my teaching technique to make sure the student is receiving enough assistance.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified Maths teacher with wide experience in private tuition. I completed PGCE Secondary Mathematics at London South Bank University and I was teaching in my secondary schools across London.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 12 years I have been working with young people at schools, colleges and training centres as a classroom teacher or one-to-one tutor. I was teaching wide range of students with different age (7 - 18 years old and adults) and abilities (top sets, bottom sets SEN). I was helping them to improve their grades/level and confidence in Maths. I also prepared students for their GCSE (Foundation and Higher).

Prior to entering the teaching profession I worked as a Teaching Assistant in EAL Department (English as a Additional Language) helping students to improve their reading and writing skills.

Recently I have been working in Further Education, teaching Functional Skills Maths. I was helping young people (16-24 years old) and adults to pass Maths exam and complete Apprenticeship programme.

Tutoring Approach:

For the last few years I was tutoring primary and secondary students on a one-to-one basis and I enjoyed it very much. In my opinion 1-2-1 tuition is a rewarding alternative to the classroom teaching. It enables teachers to focus on individual student and his/her needs. It improves students' confidence and helps them to make progress and gives satisfaction to the teacher - it enables us to make a real difference. This is why I teach on one-to-one basis.

I am very patient person and I always try to identify strengths and areas of weakness and help students to improve it. I work with my tutees at their individual pace and help them achieve thier targets. My lessons are conducted in a nice atmosphere at my home in Barking, however I may consider travelling to a student's home, if it's in an area.

Personal Description:
I have completed PhD in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Manchester. I offer assistance to degree students in assignments and dissertations. I also offer home tuitions for GCSE and A level students. Currently I am teaching at the University of Manchester to engineering students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught as Lecturer at under-grad level in the department of mechanical engineering, UET Lahore for almost three years. In January 2007, I joined the department, as Lab Engineer and then promoted to the position of Lecturer after completing Master's degree in 2009. The university and the department claim top position in national ranking and also enjoy the honour of being the biggest and oldest ones in the country. My career of about two years here was full of struggle and effort for excellence in teaching and research.
In addition to that I have have given tuitions as Home Tutor to GCSE and O/A level individuals and small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I always have the highest expectations of pupils and always have had, even when it was fashionable for learning to be more "child centred"; this is an approach I have found to pay rich dividends in terms of a pupil's academic and personal development. I have always managed to maintain friendly and relaxed environment tailored exactly to what the students requires. Above all I can offer general education and career advice when it matters the most and have observed that my students usually make fast progress towards their goals and good outputs.

Teaching Experience:

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a first class degree in French and Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

At secondary school I regularly assisted in French and Spanish classes for younger pupils.
At university I volunteer at a conversation class which involves helping refugees with their learning of English. I have also worked at a languages school, so I am able to teach languages effectively.
Last year I worked as an English language assistant in a school in Spain, as well as a personal tutor outside of school.

Tutoring Approach:

I am professional, friendly, approachable and enjoy helping pupils with their language learning.

Personal Description:
I am patient person. I have a gentle manner to get to know your child and to get the best learning experience for him/her.
While I am gentle in manner I will not take unruly behaviour.

Teaching Experience:

I am teacher who has taken early retirement. I have 15 years experience of teaching at infant level and further education level.
I taught reception classes for two years followed by year one for two years in Leicester.
I have also taught students with learning difficulties independant living skills for 9 years.
I have been working in schools in and around the Pontypridd untill I left 18 months ago to live in Glasgow.
Whilst in Glasgow I taught one 5 year old boy for a period of about 8 weeks over the smmer holiday. I also taught two 10 year old boys who needed their confidence boosting.
I am now back in Pontypridd and available to tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring should be fun for both the child and the tutor. I would look to use games as much as possible to enrich the time with your child. Initially I would need to talk to you as the parent to see what problems you and possibly the class teacher believe your child has, and how best they can be helped. I would need to review the situation as time went on to see what I have gathered.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of modern languages who combines bringing up a family with teaching French. I developed my love for languages from an early age. Coming from a bilingual home background I appreciate how language learning is an integral part of a child's development. My experience training in French Immersion education in Alberta, Canada has also added to my understanding of language acquisition and language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified French teacher with over fifteen years teaching experience. I have taught MFL in both primary and secondary schools from Early Years/Foundation Stage to GCSE level and beyond. I have run after school French clubs for primary school children and have also taught French to adults in Adult-Ed evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a distinctive approach to language teaching which strives to develop the confidence and creative skills of language learners in the four key areas of language learning by employing a variety of teaching strategies depending on the age and preferred learning style of each student.
Firstly I try to get to know my students, and establish what they already know and can do in the target language.
Then we build on their strengths while at the same time identifying areas of weakness that need to be worked on.
Study is organised taking into consideration the aims of the student and the intended length of study. I provide homework at the end of each lesson with follow-up advice and guidance on each piece of work. Preparation for examinations is systematic, concentrating on topics and language tasks specific to examination requirements.
Above all I endeavour to impart to my students a life-long love for language learning.

  • French
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (12 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (18 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am an Oxford graduate with a First Class Masters in Chemistry (Hons). I tutor at all levels and ages with a particular emphasis on the sciences and maths at A Level and GCSE. I also teach for school entrance exams, and have five years of experience tutoring for 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, with a 100% success rate.

I am currently studying at the Royal College of Music, London as a postgraduate, and I also teach the flute and piano, and music theory for GCSE, A level and Grade exams.

I am happy to teach, at short notice, specific areas of the A Level Maths/Further Maths (including the applied modules: statistics, decision and mechanics), Chemistry and Physics courses. I also prepare students for school/university entrance, and currently have a 100% success rate for the 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, and Oxbridge applications.

Undergradutate Level: If you would like Chemistry tuition at undergraduate level, please discuss your needs with me through the website`s messaging system. My specialism is in Theoretical Chemistry, and teaching physical/theoretical chemistry is my focus. Undergraduate Organic/Inorganic Chemistry tuition is also available, although some advance notice of topics to be covered is helpful in these cases. Examples of the main topics I teach include:

Quantum Mechanics,
Mathematics for Science (partial differential equations, multivariate calculus, matrix algebra, Fourier analysis etc.),
Thermodynamics (Classical/Statistical),
Reaction Kinetics and Molecular Dynamics,
Symmetry and Group Theory,
Photochemistry,
Magnetic Resonance.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 5 years, I have tutored many young students for the 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, as well as students working towards A Level and GCSE exams. This experience has allowed me to develop my one to one tutoring style, as has my own personal experience of tutorials at Oxford, where I was fortunate enough to be taught by many gifted academics. I also enjoy teaching larger groups in environments such as schools and workshops.

Tutoring Approach:

When I am tutoring, I aim to provide clarity as well as bringing the subject material to life. Being flexible, and catering to the different learning styles of my students is really important to me, but within this I will still maintain a systematic and methodical approach to the learning process. For example, in a typical lesson, I will discuss some relevant theory with the student, resolving any misconceptions and identifying any areas of confusion. Then, I will work through a carefully selected problem with them, guiding them step by step through to the answer, which has the dual purpose of providing them with a worked solution that they can use for revision purposes. Finally, I will give my student a few similar questions to tackle under my supervision, until they are able to solve the problems independently.

Most of my students are taught on a weekly basis for 60, 90 or 120 minutes, depending on what is required. Work between my sessions is an essential way of consolidating the material covered in my sessions. Normally, this will consist of a few exam problems that focus on further application of relevant theory. I will always prioritise quality over quantity when it comes to setting homework, as I am very aware that the student will already have an existing school workload and perhaps sport/musical commitments.

Self-motivation and willingness to work hard outside as well as in my sessions will ensure the success that my students aspire to.

Personal Description:
I am a recent Cass Business School MSc Graduate in field of Supply Chain. My BSc is in Economics, Finance and Management. I have a background in social and commercial entrepreneurship having worked in several start-ups and ngos.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English as a second language in Malaga Spain for 5+ years.

In Malaga, Spain there is a shortage of learning opportunities and availability of English tutors. I recognised that as a native speaker I could dedicate my spare time to tutoring students who wished to improve their conversational English. I taught on average 8-10 students a week. Ages varying mostly between 4-16 with the occasional adult learner.

As a fluent Spanish speaker I am now offering tuition for individuals seeking to develop their grammar or conversational skills in the Spanish language (Castellano).

Tutoring Approach:

As I mostly worked with children I used my creative technique to develop interactive and fun learning games to maintain the children's attention and maximise their learning. My teaching approach has been very popular in the past that I've had a long waiting list.

My method usually consists of first identifying the level and requirements of my tutoree and then developing a session outline based on the individual's needs and preferences.

I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
