Personal Description:
I studied a BSc in Genetics at the University of Liverpool after which I worked in a microbiology laboratory. In 2008, I moved to Brighton, my home town, and completed a PGCE in secondary science with the University of Brighton. My teaching practice was in two West Sussex schools and I then worked a maternity contract as a Teacher of Biology in an all-girls school in central Brighton. Following this role, I worked as an Editor for a science publishing company based in London.

My most recent teaching position was as Teacher of Science at Bellerbys College, Brighton, an international school which prepares students for a university education in the UK. Since 2008, I have tutored many students from GCSE to University level providing guidance for exams and subject-specific support. I thoroughly enjoy imparting my understanding and love of science to others.

I have recently returned to England after living in Scotland undertaking an MSc in Psychology at the University of Abertay, Dundee, whilst also working as an Independent Advocate. Alongside this, having trained as a Yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga, I teach private and group Yoga classes.

Teaching Experience:

I hold a PGCE in secondary science from the University of Brighton and whilst on this course I taught 11-18 year olds at two West Sussex schools. I then worked for a year, on a maternity contract, as a Teacher of Biology at an all-girls school in central Brighton. For three years I worked a full-time position as a Teacher of Science at Bellerbys College, Brighton.

I have eight years tutoring experience, having tutored Undergraduate-Level, A-Level, AS-level, GCSE and mature students in both Biology and Chemistry. I have a very successful track record.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very friendly and approachable, and highly dedicated to my students -- I put in a lot of time and effort to ensure they are achieving their full potential. Within the sessions, I provide solid structure and tailor my approach to their individual needs. I suggest work for completion outside of sessions and provide the students with direction to develop their private approach to learning and revision.

I am able to explain difficult concepts in an easily digested way, making learning for them enjoyable and confidence-boosting. I have a clear, patient manner, and an excellent grasp of my subject specialisms.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor with first class honours in Modern and Medieval Languages and Literature from Cambridge University. I am also a working actor with six years of professional experience throughout theatre (Shakespeare's Globe, Edinburgh Royal Lyceum, Northern Stage, Southwark Playhouse), television (BBC, ITV, Sky) and radio (Radio 4).
I also have 5 A-Levels at A grade, 10 GCSEs (9 A*s - for my English Literature GCSE I received the top mark in the country - and 1 A).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a committed tutor for a number of years now, dedicated to enabling others. Additionally as an Educational Practitioner with the Globe Theatre, Propeller Theatre Company and as a freelance Workshop Leader, working with 8-18 year olds (and often international students who speak no English!) I have learned first hand the power of facilitating learning in others.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very keen to tailor my tuition to the specific needs of the tutee ie. try to identify subject areas in which they themselves felt under-confident. If a "general" improvement is sought then of course I would structure the sessions around what I felt would be most useful; as a jobbing actor I am able to thoroughly prepare each lesson plan around the needs of the individual, and insodoing, to maximise the efficiency of the time "in the classroom"! I myself was tutored outside of school during my adolescence, so know what a tiresome experience external tuition can sometimes be, especially on top of an increasingly demanding schedule within school, so would be keen to make this experience as harmless, instructive and hopefully fun for the tutee as possible! It is something I am deeply passionate about.

Personal Description:
I am a full time professional online physics tutor and an excellent physics communicator. I have the ability, understanding and resources to get the best out of students for their GCSEs, A levels and undergraduate degrees. I am a fully qualified, DBS checked, physics teacher with nine years teaching and tuition experience across all ages and abilities. Working as an examiner for the major exam boards in the UK has given me a detailed understanding of examination requirements, I extend this insight to my students, giving them not only the required knowledge for their exams but also the very best exam technique. I have just been awarded a Ph.D. in Physics, this involved producing cutting edge research for future solar technology, this work helps me to inspire my students. I am passionate about my subject and I really enjoy my job as a tutor. So if you, or someone you know, wants to learn physics and get higher grades please get in touch.

I will provide:
Increased students grades (see testimonials)
Friendly, reliable and professional service
Inspiration and encouragement
Supporting homework and problems
Highly efficient and effective environment for learning
Excellent subject knowledge
Increased problem solving skills
Significant improvements to exam technique
An ability to get the best out of students
A level, GCSE and Undergraduate Physics tutorials
A level and GCSE Chemistry and Mathematics tutorials
Help with university entrance exams

Teaching Experience:

I am a professional Physics tutor with nine years teaching and tutoring experience. In 2005 I graduated from Leeds University with a BSc Physics, having achieved the second highest mark in the year.† I received a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education) from Nottingham University in 2007.† After which I completed an NQT followed by two years at the Brunts School in Mansfield, with particular success teaching GCSE and A-level Physics.†

In 2011 I started tutoring part time while studying for a Masters in Nanoscience at Nottingham University. I graduated in 2012 having achieved the highest mark in the history of the course (79.3%), while my tutees have made massive improvements.

I have obtained a PhD in Physics. This involved using X-ray based techniques to analyse molecules and nanostructures on surfaces. The primary goal was to investigate charge transfer between these nanostructures and various surfaces.† Charge transfer is very important for solar cells and organic LEDs and his research leads to fundamental understanding of the physics behind these technologies.† Part of this work involved attending MAX-Lab IV in Lund, Sweden and Soleil in Paris to which involved using a synchrotron, which is an X-ray producing particle accelerator.† I hope that this research will lead to developing new technologies for light flexible displays and low cost solar power generation.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work with the student to quickly find the problems they are having with physics, then rebuild their knowledge or correct their misconceptions, making the relevant physics†clear and easy to understand. Challenging questions and assignments will be set to drive, encourage and push a student outside of tutorials. This also helps to carefully assess knowledge and give them a much clearer understanding. Working through problem solving, examination techniques and confidence building exercises, I can improve a students' performance in any exam. Ultimately driving students towards their best while making the learning process fun, enjoyable and inspirational.

How online tutorials work:
Tutorials online are conducted over Skype or FaceTime using Scribbler. This means students can see me and talk to me via a video call. Scribbler is an interactive white board used by both myself and my student, it is web based so only a flash enabled web browser is required (it doesn't work on an iPad). This allows students to work with me on problems, and keep their tutorial notes in one place for revision. I also used a wide range a range of animations and online resources, which are carefully selected to improve understanding.

Whatever you need:
So if you just need help with a few problems, a complete course in physics from scratch, or anything in-between, I can help, please get in touch.

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.

I am a retired lecturer from Sri Lanka, and I have been teaching Economics, Business Studies and marketing in Schools (Edexcel Specifications), Academic levels and professional levels in Sri Lanka.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 15 years of teaching experience (Lecturing). The theories what I have studied and have been teaching is universal. When I teach any subjects mentioned above, I always quote UK examples and also world examples and refers to UK case studies where its appropriate. Over the past few years I have prepared many students successfully in Economics and business studies In AQA, Ed excel and OCR specifications. In any syllabus specification the theories are same,
Home visits are possible with in 15 miles from SM6 area and can consider other areas with prior negotiations.

Tutoring Approach:

I follow the syllabus provided by the exam board, to teach each topic. Then I go through past papers, explain how to answer the questions. I expect students to do the papers at home and give to me for marking. I go through their answers and explain how to answer the questions. My teaching approach is, first I assess the student's current knowledge regarding the subject and thereafter I pitch accordingly. I use simple language and current examples in explaining the theories and concepts. Also I give and discuss past papers with the student and guide them in the correct method in answering a question. I give home work from selected past papers. I prepare a simplified handout for every lesson and this handout is the final reading material for the examination. Sometimes I dictate short notes during the lesson and my teaching sessions are interactive, where the students are encouraged to ask questions and express their current knowledge about the subject. At present there are number of satisfied students. I am unable to disclose their identities with out prior permission from them. My first lesson is free of charge. So that the student will have a chance to judge my approaches to teaching, subject knowledge, my mannerism etc.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Physics and BSc Maths/Physics Jt Honours 1st Class. I am a co-author of over 60 peer reviewed papers in science journals and was a research scientist for 27 years in the world renowned Daresbury Laboratory of the Science and Technology Facilities Council which helps keep the UK at the forefront of international science and technology. I ran the operations of a world class X-ray photoelectron spectrometer for a wide range of applications in physics, chemistry, biology and material science.
I am a qualified martial arts instructor and teach the Chinese Wing Chun system. I believe sports can contribute towards an all round education and under proper supervision, martial arts can offer health benefits and is beneficial for mental and physical discipline. I am also interested in the promotion of the Chinese language because I am of Chinese origin and can speak Cantonese and Mandarin fluently. I also enjoy salsa dancing, music, fell walking, yoga and travel.

Teaching Experience:

Although semi-retired, I am still passionate about science and after gaining my PGCE teaching qualification in 2012, I am now embarking on helping GCSE and A level students with private tuition. My vast experience in training postgraduate students and working with scientists in solving real problems both academically and in industry brings in an invaluable real life dimension to the learning experience of the students.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is conducted in a relaxed but studious atmosphere and is tailored to individual needs with realistic targets. I use effective questioning and past examination papers for assessment which allow students to monitor their own progress.
I was a 16 years old migrant from Hong Kong when I first came to England in 1973, so I can certainly relate to problems such as racism, misunderstanding of and by others, loneliness, lack of empathy and learning barriers.

Personal Description:
I'm a 23-year-old Physics graduate from Cambridge University living in South London. I received a first in Natural Sciences (specialising in Physics in the final two years) in my finals in May 2014. I went to school at Alleyn's Independent School in South London where I was School Captain and an academic scholar. I attained 10 A*s at GCSE, 4 A*s at A level (in Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths) and 5 As at AS level (in the above subjects and English). I taught myself the A2 Further Maths syllabus and got full marks in Chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

I've worked regularly as a tutor over the last five years and have approximately 800 hrs of one-to-one lesson experience with an age range of 5-19. I have taught over 30 students in total and at least 20 of those for longer than six months so can provide multiple references. I have tutored the following subjects:

A-Level: Chemistry, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics
GCSE: Maths, Sciences (single, double and triple), English.
Public and Grammar school entrance examinations: 7+, 9+, 11+, 13+ (including Eton Scholarship exam)

Tutoring Approach:

The thing that makes one-on-one tutorials more effective than a group lesson is the potential for them to be student led. I try not to talk too much but instead favour practicing questions (particularly in mathematics) and getting the student to explain topics with a view to pin-pointing gaps in understanding. This way I add to what the student already knows rather than lecturing on what they may already understand.

I try and vary the sessions, particularly with younger students, in order to maintain concentration levels throughout. For example, in GCSE maths and science lessons I will try to work in a quiz mid-way through the lesson to avoid boredom. I like to conduct relaxed and informal lessons because I think a student is far more likely to learn when they are not stressed.

I'm an outgoing girl from China, and I'm really patient. I used to be the best debater in my faculty in China, and I also participated many kinds of Chinese speech contest. So I'm confident that I can be an effective Chinese tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have one student currently and he has improved a lot. And I believe you can also learned Mandarin quickly as long as you have the passion and practice very often.

Tutoring Approach:

Practice makes perfect, the best way to improve a language is to use it more often, and you can choose me as your learning partner!

Personal Description:
I'm Karis, a 21 year old university graduate just looking to help out wherever I can. I have worked with children and young people since mid-secondary school coaching sports. I'm a hard-working, results-driven, positive individual interested in working with children and young people as it wasn't long ago I was in their exact position in GCSE and A-Level. Growing up I wanted to be a secondary school PE teacher, but due to limited places on PGCE's nowadays, and more positive experiences as a teaching assistant, I am now considering becoming a teaching assistant, or continuing a primary school based coaching project that I'm currently taking part in in university.

Teaching Experience:

I have coached children since aged 14 in a range of sports to try and help them develop a variety of interpersonal skills, and skills and qualities in the sports.
Between the age of 16-18 I ran an after-school netball club in primary schools to develop a team and take them to competitions.
After leaving 6th form I continued going in to primary schools with my secondary school teacher, assisting her in leading sessions for the children.
During university, I completed work placements working as a teaching assistant in London.
I also worked on a project for university in taking sports and nutrition in to primary schools to relieve teachers of their PE lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to be as easy-going and laid-back as I can be in my approach, I listen to what the child has to say and I help them and try to ease their knowledge out of them with a variety of questions. Its a self-discovery/self-guided approach using Mosston's Spectrum of teaching. For example, I'd ask them questions based on a particular topic or question they need to be able to answer, which leads them to figure out the correct answers themselves, etc. Not only will I use a self-discovery route, but when necessary I'd provide information and knowledge that I know in order to help them achieve their potential.

Report: My son is finding Jon`s lessons really useful. He explains things clearly, is extremely knowledgeable in his subject and is friendly. My son feels at ease with Jon. He is most accommodating when arranging tuition. A good choice of tutor and I would certainly recommend him.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring A level Physics
During my research I worked as a Private A level tutor for the children of a number of overseas Professors - teaching A level Physics and (through one of those students) was invited to teach Physics to A level students at a Ladies Grammar school in Manchester when their teacher became ill. I also taught A level Physics at the Trafford Park College of Further Education in Stretford, Manchester for 2 years

Tutoring Approach:

One to One - focussing on parts of the curriculum where the student is having difficulty in understanding
Create a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. The student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves. One-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students' personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject.

Depending on the student's needs and learning style I encourage students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don't lecture to students or ask them to memorise things. Nor do I do the students' homework for them!

Subjects
  • Physics
  • A-Level or Highers (£25 p.h.)
