Personal Description:
I am a young professional with a strong background in volunteer mentoring with children and young people, as well as a solid academic resume. I was home educated (tutorial-based) through primary and secondary school, and went on to study English Literature and History at the University of Edinburgh.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working since June 2011 at Mackenzie School of English, teaching English as a second language to foreign high school students.

Also, I have been a private tutor since February 2011, working with a range of ages and levels in both English Literature and History.

As well as my professional experience, I have been involved in youth work, summer camps, and one-to-one mentoring of young people for the past eight years or so. Working at summer camps has given me experience in both group work - teaching and leading discussions - as well as in one-to-one mentoring. Currently I am involved in a weekly youth club here in Leith, working with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from the local community.

Tutoring Approach:

Coming from a rather unconventional educational background, I would bring with me a deep passion for the need to create a tailored and bespoke educational experience for each individual young person. I know how incredible my own learning experience has been, instilling within me a value and love of learning that will remain with me my whole life. I would approach tutoring with this same passion. Learning excites and challenges me, and I believe that it has become limited in the classroom at times. When a young person can see someone else passionate and excited about an aspect of knowledge and understanding, the ramifications are huge. Not only does tutoring provide an avenue for this one-to-one mentoring, but I believe it is also the most powerful method of teaching. It is in that bond of mutual regard and respect that true learning occurs. These passions and beliefs are foundational to my approach of tutoring and mentoring.

Personal Description:
I am a highly motivated, friendly and professional tutor. I am a Sociology and Psychology Lecturer at an Independent College with extensive experience (over 15 years) of teaching both subjects at A level (AQA specification). I am passionate about my subjects and enjoy working with young people and passing on this passion and motivating them to reach their potential.

My teaching style is very interactive using students' existing knowledge and developing this further. Students are persuaded to stretch themselves and work as hard as possible in order to achieve success.

I have the ability to convey understanding in relation to complex areas of both subjects and I am able to communicate effectively to people at different academic levels and of varying academic ability.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience teaching the AQA specification for both Psychology & Sociology. I have an excellent track record with 70% of Sociology students and 60% of Psychology students achieving grades A-B (June 2016 results).

For the past 15 years, I have also taught private students both subjects at A level on a one-to-one and small group basis. Many of my students have continued to study these subjects at degree level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is very student-centred, tailored to each student's individual requirements. I tend to use a two-way interactive approach with a focus on problem areas and difficulties that the student may need to work through. I like to use a variety of teaching techniques such as discussions, white board and powerpoint slides.

I believe that in order to achieve success students benefit from learning good exam techniques and also by working through past exam papers and plenty of practice answering exam questions.

  • A-Level or Highers (35 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have a First Class Honours degree in Sociology from the University of Leeds. I'm fluent in Welsh and am offering tutoring in Welsh and English for Sociology up to and including degree level, and for Economics up to and including A level. I currently work as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor, mostly for students and academics, helping them express their ideas clearly and coherently in their work.

Teaching Experience:

In my role as proofreader, I am sometimes approached for advice on essay writing, often by people who have never been properly taught this key skill. Throughout my educational career, I have found that without this skill, an individual's progress can be severely restricted.
In the past I have also successfully tutored Sociology at AS level and was very pleased to see my tutees' grades improve when resitting exams. I feel that at least part of this success was due to the rapport we had built up from an early stage.
I am currently teaching an adult Welsh learner via Skype, which offers it's own challenges and opportunities.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the individual needs and circumstances of the tutee. We can work on homework, building on the feedback from their school teacher or university lecturer, as well as setting achievable targets to aim for. For this to work, it's vital for the tutee to feel comfortable and confident in the subject, and to find it interesting and relevant. There's nothing worse than reducing what can be a fascinating exploration into how the world works into a dry, and seemingly pointless exercise.

Regarding my tutoring rates: I prefer to work from home, but if that doesn't suit you then I can come to you. In such cases, I also ask for travel expenses to be paid as well. I do not have a car, so where possible this will be a bus or two.

I am also more than happy to meet in a public place (for adult tutees), or for the parents or guardian of the tutee to sit in on the lesson.

Subjects
  • Sociology
  • GCSE or Standards (12 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (15 p.h.)
  • Adult/Casual learner (12 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a creative BA(Hons) Performance graduate from The University of the West of Scotland, currently working on my own theatre projects, working with the Home School Partnership in the South Lanarkshire area, as well as working a part time job. I graduated from Stow College, Glasgow, with an HND in Acting and Performance. Throughout the years, I have performed in several theatre pieces, including productions in Leipzig, Germany. During my time at university, I focused my research on learning language through drama and theatre techniques, which lead me to apply for a scholarship to study and complete my TEFL qualification. Through the Home School Partnership, I am learning British sign language, undergone Solution Focused training, and workshops with the Children's Parliament.

Teaching Experience:

I work with some first and second year high school students who have dyslexia or perhaps struggle with reading, to develop confidence and support the pupils with their reading skills through Scotland Reads. I have teach the pupils beginners sign language to encourage their learning, and they will be signing at the 'Scotland Reads' awards.
I have lead many workshops using drama skills, with such groups as; trainee teachers at The University of the West of Scotland, a student LGBT group, and gave one-to-one tutorials on confidence building for a trainee doctor, about to sit their final GP exam.
Having created, written, directed, produced, and performed my own theatre performance, which has been performed at the Arches, Glasgow, and the East Kilbride Arts Centre, I know how to develop and encourage my cast to accomplish the best outcome.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe people learn better when they're in a supported, creative, and guided environment. Different techniques work for different people, but it's about getting to know who you're working with in order to determine what is best for them.

  • Drama

Personal Description:
Hi,

I am a Turkish and Maths teacher from London.

I absolutely love teaching Turkish to foreigners because I enjoy meeting and engaging with people; there is also nothing more rewarding than to give people a valuable skill in life, and a way of understanding different cultures.

I am a friendly, positive, and patient person. I want to use my skills to enrich others lives; whether it is to open gateways for new job prospects or just to help them achieve a personal goal.

Teaching Experience:

1 years of Turkish teaching experience in Southgate Turkish School
9 years of teaching experience
5 Years of Private Turkish lessons

Tutoring Approach:

Each class I give is adapted to the individual's needs. My approach is always to put the students' goals first. While achieving these targets I pinpoint any weaknesses or problem areas and give them support and guidance on how to correct these mistakes.

I follow a method and material that incorporates grammar, speaking, pronunciation, listening and some writing. I encourage homework exercises as well.

I firmly believe learning is about having fun too so my classes include conversations and discussions about trending topics or news articles of particular interest.

Personal Description:
Currently, I am a Lecturer at London Metropolitan University in Chemistry (Bachelor level) and Visitor research scientist follow at The Open University. I am a PhD degree (Full-time study) holder in Chemistry from The Open University and Master's and Bachelor degrees in Chemistry from Bordeaux 1 University, France. I have been a tutor in Chemistry, Maths, Physics, French and Arabic with different agencies in London.
I am able to teach Chemistry for all level and Maths, Physics, French and Arabic for GCSE or National 3-5 and Secondary (11 to 14 years) students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taken every opportunity to develop my teaching skills while working at London Metropolitan University and The Open University. These include chemistry laboratory teaching, mentoring and training of both undergraduate and postgraduate students. I have also participated in various educational projects in other universities. For example, at the University of Bordeaux I, Science and Technology in France,

I strive to vary my teaching style to meet the learning needs of individual students. I have received high performance reviews for my ability to creatively make complex topics manageable. I am patient creative organized and
energetic.
Schools and universities focus on conveying a large amount of information to their students. But for most people that is not enough to create genuine understanding and an ability to answer exam questions. That is why many students, regardless of their ability, seek to get extra help from a private tutor.

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves. My experience has been that 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.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging 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!

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs.

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.

Personal Description:
I'm a PhD student in Artificial Intelligence (Computer Science) at Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne.
I have a Teaching Diploma in Pure Mathematics (2008) and a Master's degree in Computational Mathematics (2014) from Lebanon.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Maths for over 4 years in three different schools in the UAE and Lebanon. I have also tutored more than 70 students of all age groups in the past 10 years.
While I was in Dubai (2008 till 2011), I had to tutor the British and American curricula (O level, A level, IGCSE and IB). I am also able to teach the French curriculum (in French or English).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that students have different learning styles and interests, that's why I try to teach the way they learn.
I am very patient, and I encourage my students to give their best and trust their abilities. I also attempt to help them develop some interest in the subject I tutor.
I do my best to simplify things as much as possible, and come up with different ways to explain difficult concepts.

FAQs

Which subject(s) do you teach?
I specialise in the humanities, the social sciences, and relevant creative industries up to (and inclusive of) degree level; I'm equipped to teach an array of closely-related topics, at various levels, by virtue of my diverse (academic and professional) background(s).

Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a (comb. hons.) bachelor's degree-English with Creative Writing, a master's degree-Professional Writing, and currently find myself undertaking a PhD by research.

How much do you charge?
My rate is 20 per hour, irrespective of subject, or level (there is no charge for the first/introductory session).

NB: my service is of no lesser quality than that of tutors whom request in excess of 60 per hour; I simply fail to see a correlation between entitlements to opportunity and financial means.

Where do you teach?
Primarily, I teach from home; however, I also offer online tuition (for those who would otherwise have to travel long distances, or are unable to travel).

When are you available?
I tutor full-time, alongside part-time postgraduate study. My hours are: 09:00-19:00, Mon-Sun.

I'm an enhanced DBS certificate holder, and member of the DBS Update Service.

Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I'm a full member of The Tutors' Association.

Tell me about some of your current students.
Many of my current AS/A2 students are preparing for the January 2017 mock examinations-Psychology, English Literature, Sociology, Philosophy, or a combination thereof.

Teaching Experience:

What kind of experience do you have?
Aside from my experience as an academic tutor (which exceeds four years), I've also served NHS psychiatric services, as a negotiations/conflict resolution tutor: this role involved the design and implementation of dialectical interventions-chiefly, those concerned with emotionally complex situations (e.g. violence and aggression, high-stakes contexts, etc.).

Tutoring Approach:

Describe your tutoring approach.
I'm an experienced tutor, with a conversational approach; one that blends constructivist, cognitivist, and experiential learning theories-i.e., framing new concepts within a student's existing knowledge base, exploring (and adapting to) each student's unique learning style(s), turning theoretical concepts to practical problems, and encouraging self-directed learning (where appropriate).

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can facilitate online tuition via Skype, or a similar application. I involve a range of digital technologies (e.g. to annotate scanned written work, design original resources, etc.), with ongoing email correspondence and access to shared cloud storage serving complimentary functions.
