Personal Description:
My name is Hywel and I've been tutoring biology since 2002 after receiving my bachelor of science at Reading University. I have completed a PGCE (post graduate certificate of education) in further education and lectured for three and a half years in anatomy and physiology. I've always loved tutoring and helping my students so I've set up this site to aid all those struggling in biology! For the last three years I have tutored GCSE maths, having studied statistics at university. Finally I tutor in chess, teaching the tactics and strategies of the game, an interest of mine which I have brought to several private schools in the area.

I commute within 8 miles and also tutor online via Skype at 22 for an hour.

I've lectured in several colleges, including anatomy and physiology at Afan College for four years. For the last four years I have taught GCSE maths, GCSE biology and GCSE environmental and land based science at a home education group. My private tuition experience in biology is extensive, having carried it out for fourteen years.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor lessons to student's needs, making sure revision and exam techniques match knowledge and understanding. Work is carried out by both tutor and student to ensure a rise in grades. Seeing my students enjoy their work as their grades increase is one of the most rewarding parts to tuition and I bring this enthusiasm to all my lessons.

Personal Description:
I'm an enthusiastic and easy-going guy who enjoys bringing the best out of people. An award-winning teacher, I have years of teaching experience and a PhD in politics.

Prior to this I studied politics, sociology and philosophy at the University of York and the University of Leeds. At Leeds I received a prize for the highest mark in my graduate year at Leeds and I was awarded scholarships to fund my studies at York and Westminster.

Besides my academic work, I've up to ten years of experience working as a researcher in public policy. I currently work for the NHS and have previously worked at think-tanks including the Work Foundation and the New Economics Foundation. I enjoy a range of hobbies, including the guitar and sports.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying for a Masters Degree at the University of Bedfordshire in Theatre Research having completed my undergraduate in Theatre and Professional Practice. My area of expertise involves the Representation of Trans in Political Image based theatre, as well as adapting text for stage.

My approach to tutoring is very simple, I guide my students but it is down to you to lead the way and come up with the answers and the creative ideas yourself. With Theatre and Drama there is no right and wrong, so you can't get things wrong, the important thing is to try out different ideas and see which idea works best for the topic you are dealing with.

Personal Description:
A fixture in the London underground DJ community for over 10 years, I recently completed a BA in Music Production at BIMM London (1st degree honours awarded) whilst also holding a MLT in Teaching and Training.

I currently tutor at CM Sounds and Core Arts, both based in east London. Production projects have been varied and exciting with remixes and artist albums released on the original rave era label Kniteforce, and sync remix commissions for UMPG (Universal Music).

Past achievements include gaining a BTec level 3 in Music Technology, Designing and growing a successful underground music website (now officially an archive only), and co founding and running Graffiti Breakz (2007-2010), a successful club event which incorporated DJ's, Live Music and Live art.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher at City & Guilds level 3 (2015). I recently completed my BA Hons in Music production (2013/2016), I plan to take a year out to gain teaching experience before moving onto to a PGCE in Music Technology for the Lifelong Learning sector at UCL (2017/2018). I already Hold BTec level 3 Diploma in Music technology (2006).

Tutoring Approach:

No matter what your current skill level or preferred style of music, I will be able to help you improve and enhance your skills or GCSE/A-level/Degree course work.

I am also a native english speaker and have a keen interest in academic writing and the english language.

I am willing to travel to a students home, however if the tuition is music based, I would recommend coming to my home studio, which is fully equipped with industry standard equipment and software. This environment will help your skills and knowledge elevate rapidly to the next level. (equipment list found at the foot of this section).

Having studied at Degree level, I am well suited to help you with course work for GSCE/A-level and Degree. Your course work will benefit considerably from the insights gained from my guidance.

However if you have left formal education and require assistance with a music project from the angle of enhanced production and arrangement techniques, I am also glad to be of assistance.

I have extensive experience in the areas of Music Production, Remixing, Studio Recording, Song Writing and Arranging.

Personal Description:
I am a music graduate, with aims to go into music lecturing. I am about to start an MA in Applied Musicology at Utrecht University. I decided to start Skype tuition because it`s an incredibly effective medium for teaching, and also because I don`t stay in one place for longer than a year at the moment due to being a student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, so for over 14 years now. I studied at Leeds College of Music for 2 years, and have recently graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with a BA(Hons) degree in Popular Music. I have played a range of styles, but find my favourite, and most developed, styles are funk and blues.

Tutoring Approach:

The teaching will be focussed around where YOU want to go. What type of guitar do you want to play? You tell me, and I'll tailor the path we take in order to both develop you as a musician and play the music you love!
I specialise in funk, blues, and rhythm guitar.
There are some core books I recommend you have access to before we begin, but aren't obligatory. They are: 'A Guide to Chords, Scales, & Arpeggios' by Al Di Meola, and 'Basix Scales & Modes for Guitar' by Steve Hall and Rom Manus.
I use these books for warm up exercises, which I value greatly, as it prevents damage to your hands, and means you learn and maintain the level of professionalism expected of every good musician.

My aims as a teacher are to get you to where you want to be with the guidance I can offer, and at the same time giving you the skills required to develop even further in your own independent practice.
