Personal Description:
I have a PhD in laser beam shaping and a first class BSc in Physics. I am a published scientist and I have teaching experience ranging from lecturing at undergraduate level to tutoring A-level and GCSE students.

I am 34 years old, married with a three year old son. As well as tutoring I also work for a leading firm of UK and European patent attorneys in central London, helping people and companies to protect their ideas.

I am approachable, patient and friendly, and an ideal tutor for anyone needing extra help in Maths or Physics.

Whether you sitting your GSCEs or preparing for university exams, I can help you gain the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to gain your full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Maths and Physics in the UK since 2006.

I have experience in lecturing at first and second year undergraduate level, having taught the Fundamentals of Physics course to English speaking students at Northeastern University in China from 2012-2014.

From 2006 to 2012, I tutored an average of nine students per year, mainly for Maths GCSE and Physics A-levels across the OCR, EdExcel and AQA exam boards.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an enthusiastic approach to tutoring and always try to ensure a real sense of progress and satisfaction by the end of each lesson by working on high priority problem areas first. I pride myself on my ability to explain complex ideas in a simple and memorable way and I also teach exam and revision techniques that really do work.

I offer a friendly relaxed teaching environment tailored to the learning style of each person I teach. During lessons I draw up notes that the student can keep, I work through relevant exam questions, and I set homework within the limits agreed by the student and/ or the parent so that the student can build their confidence in the time between lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and passionate graduate from Oxford University with a love for languages. Having achieved a first class degree in French and Linguistics, I am keen to pass on my knowledge and love of language and literature to other students. I completed a research Masters in West African French literature, and am currently pursuing my studies in the second year of my doctorate whilst also developing my teaching experience. I hold a TEFL qualification and have taught a wide range of students in France, Brazil and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL teaching:
- Beginner and Intermediate classes at International House London as part of training. Highly commended.
- Part of a student-led initiative in Oxford to teach English to low wage workers. We organised evening classes for international adult students of multiple levels of proficiency.
- Teaching experience in Wizard and ERTE schools in Bahia, Brazil.
- Private tutoring for GCSE student as well as adults learning French.
- English tandem learning with advanced adult learner from China: conversational and written English.

British council:
- English teacher for 11-16 year olds in Laval, France in 2009-10. Planned and delivered English lessons focussed on speaking and listening, current affairs, and reading skills.

Warwick University:
- Teaching first and second year students in French language and literature as part of my PhD.

Primary school:
- Teaching assistant 2006-7 in Garden House School, London. Prepared and assisted lessons for year 1 pupils, as well as organising timetables and caring for students. Involved some special needs assistance.

Youth work:
- Worked as part of two youth work teams over 3 years to organise activities and teach teenagers aged 15-19.

Mentoring:
- Reading programmes with younger students struggling with English language.
- Advised and assisted GCSE and A-level students in preparation for exams and applying for higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

Depending on the individual needs of each student, I will prepare a range of tasks to build confidence in specific areas of weakness. From past experience, a lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers to learning, so in all cases I seek to reassure a student of existing strengths and abilities before and during our tuition. More generally, we will develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through different activities to strengthen and accelerate ongoing language learning. Where appropriate/desired, I will bring in relevant texts and materials to develop broader reading building up analytical and critical skills. Grammar work will always feature, though in well-balanced chunks which aim to be accessible AND enjoyable!

Most importantly, I hope to inspire students of any level to relish and enjoy their studies, and to yearn for a more solid grasp of their subject and a higher proficiency in each area of language learning.

Personal Description:
I am a mechanical engineer with MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development from University of Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I was involved in conducting the training camp for the selection of the team that represented Pakistan in the 36th International Physics Olympiad, held in Spain. I was involved in conducting exams, practicals, marking, teaching as well as coordinating tutorials sessions with professors.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take a practical approach to teaching. I want to give an intuitive feel to the students to help him grasp complex concepts. I do this by giving everyday examples to highlight the subjects under study. I want to
make science fun, cool and intuitive for students and remove the myth and misconceived perception that it is difficult and boring. If the teaching approach is correct, there is no reason why students will not be thrilled by laws and mechanisms of universe.

Personal Description:
I first became interested in teaching through working as a private tutor with GCSE students, something I am doing since I finished my graduation, training to become a leader in the process. This made me realise I enjoyed working with the people in their learning process, and college experience confirmed tutoring/teaching as a career choice. My subsequent one year PGCE has served further to fire my enthusiasm and prepared me effectively to take responsibility for learners.

I have completed PGCE , a Masters and a BSc in Economics, level 5 Mathematics in Mechanics, numeracy level 1 & 2, Diploma in Computer Science & Application and I am a Certified Internet Webmaster Associate.

Teaching Experience:

I am teaching for last 5 years. In addition, I worked as a Teaching Assistant over two years.I have been privately tutoring primary and secondary maths, A level maths and Economics on one-to-one basis since 2003. My academic education and teaching practices have given me a good understanding of the curriculum and of what makes effective teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I make a conscious effort to ensure I am not just catering for visual learners like myself, but try to see lessons through other learners' eyes. For example, to introduce pictograms to numeracy entry level class, I got the learners to create 'human pictograms' arranged by name length, pets, eye colour, etc. and then transferred that information as pictograms to the board. Kinaesthetic learners were thereby catered for in the physical movement and manipulation, visual learners in the pictograms created on the board and audio learners as we discussed and interpreted the graphs.

I have in particular come to understand the value of sharing learning objectives and success criteria with students. Knowing exactly what is expected and how they can achieve allow learners to focus more clearly on tasks.

I feel it is important to make learning interesting and creative, and one way to achieve this is using real life example; this allows learners to explore and understand situations and express feelings, thoughts and emotions. An example of how I have successfully used real life situation was with a GCSE class, working out the area of the classroom to decide the correct amount of carpet needed for the classroom. I gave the students measuring tape to measure the length and width of the classroom. They were incredibly enthusiastic and threw themselves into the task. They found this a fun, enjoyable and worthwhile learning experience, which enabled them to better understand the situation and empathise with those concerned.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of teaching both small groups and 1:1, including ESL students. Throughout my university career I have taught at undergraduate and postgraduate level and have had pastoral responsibility for students in the department. Since having my own children I have actively engaged in outreach activities to both junior and secondary schools. Recently, prior to becoming a tutor I spent 1 year working with KS2, KS3 and GCSE students

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that in order for my students to achieve their best my role as a tutor is to build confidence, stimulate interest and consolidate knowledge. I recognize the difference in learning styles between individuals and employ a range of teaching approaches to address these, always tailored to the individual student

Personal Description:
I'm a flexible, energetic and dynamic tutor offering lessons in English, Violin and 11+ to students from primary age to A-level and beyond. I have a passion for English literature and music, and I love to teach.

As I have been finishing my PhD, I have gradually been taking on more pupils for private tuition. I specialize in bringing the academic study of English to life for school students by combining a dynamic and accessible approach with the exciting ideas and research I have experienced at university level.

Teaching Experience:

I have a range of classroom and 1-to-1 teaching experience. As an English tutor, I have worked with a range of students from primary to PhD level. I am experienced at preparing students for exams, 11+ and university entrance, including intensive revision work to prepare students for a particular exam.
I have also delivered the GCSE English curriculum to a home-schooled pupil as her only English teacher. At the University of St Andrews, I was employed for 3 years as a tutor for undergraduate students in the English and Music departments. Through my tutorials on essay writing skills, I was able to significantly improve the marks of my cohort of students, and I teach the same techniques to my pupils at school stage. After qualifying with the widely recognized CELTA certificate in English Language Teaching, I spent several summers teaching English language to classes of children and teenagers aged from 10 to 18.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning with a tutor can be much, much more fun than learning in school! And since literature is all about life, learning to critically read and interpret literary texts, whether at GCSE or undergraduate level, will open your eyes to look at the world in a new way. I love the fact that through my experience of university life as a student and teacher, I can fast-track my school-aged pupils to the skills and ideas they'll need at university and beyond. The study of English literature at university is a different world to that at school - I wish I had known at school how rich and interesting the subject was. Through my teaching, I aim to inspire my students not only to understand and appreciate the great works of literature that they study, but to use them to understand big ideas about history and society.

I am also keenly aware of the requirements of the various exam boards, and I tailor my approach to developing skills to excel in particular exams and beyond. I particularly enjoy preparing students for exams such as GCSE and A-level, and I am equally at home providing challenging debate to stretch the most gifted and talented pupils, or inspiring enthusiasm in students who want to improve their grades. One of the best things about private tuition is seeing my pupils develop their confidence, whether in musical performance or tackling the big ideas in works of literature.

As a violin teacher, I love to teach beginners of any age, but particularly young children. My lessons are lively, interactive and engaging, developing all-round musical ability in a way that is fun and motivating. I can also act as a practice buddy for any instrument, and assist with reading music, sight-reading, music theory and aural training skills.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Sophie. I am a 2nd year student of Biochemistry at Edinburgh University, having just finished my gap year working at IBM. I love to spend my spare time either on the hockey pitch, in the kitchen or doing some art.

Teaching Experience:

Student science tutor for 2 years whilst at school
Summer Camp Leader for 3 years running, experience with international children.
Leader at Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows
Work experience at an Adult Learning Centre

Tutoring Approach:

It has been my experience, both as a tutor and as a student, that the best way to engage with learning is to understand your working style. I personally have found certain aspects of school quite challenging but by finding the methods that most suited my needs, I was able to maximize my learning potential.

My tutoring style emphasizes collaboration and positive reinforcement in order to produce a friendly learning environment.

From my charity work abroad in Ghana to my role as Deputy Head Girl at my secondary school, I have gained the interpersonal skills necessary to develop productive and compassionate relationships with pupils. Students will find themselves excited for their lessons and eager to achieve new standards of excellence.

Personal Description:
My name is Dorothee and I am 28 years old. I am originally from Paris but am currently living in Portsmouth where my husband has been hired a year ago. I am a French speech and language therapist, with long experience in personal tuition, willing to teach French at all levels, at home or online.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught various subjects, including French literature, history and geography, with "CapCours", a French institution providing school support and personal tuition in the Parisian area (total of ~800 hours of personalised school support for children from 8 to 18 years old).

I have also experience in private literacy courses for adults.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to start from the needs of the tutee, his/her strength and weaknesses and plan lessons accordingly. To me, the first quality of a tutor is to be able to adapt to people and situations. My personal experience in speech and language therapy as well as tutoring has taught me how to personalise in details the way I teach. I am used to choose different supports depending on the needs and personal tastes of the tutee (vocabulary exercises, grammar exercises, conversation training, role playing, interview preparation, working from newspapers articles, comics, movies, TV programs and series, books, French reviews, etc.). Last but not least, I truly believe pleasure is the most crucial ingredient to successfully learn how to speak and understand a foreign language!

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Modern Foreign Languages teacher with experience of teaching Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A Level at secondary school and tutoring English, French and Spanish privately.

I am a hard-working and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about teaching and modern foreign languages. Therefore, in addition to teaching French and Spanish in secondary schools, I have also started a language tuition business so that I can support people with their language learning and development of their linguistic skills.

Teaching Experience:

- During my teacher training, I worked at two secondary schools where I taught French and Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and I also spent a few days working in a primary school observing and assisting teachers.

- During my NQT year, I worked at a secondary school in Trowbridge where I taught Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and French to Key Stage 3.

- As part of my Spanish degree, I worked as an English Language Assistant in a school in Madrid for an academic year.

- I have worked part time as a tutor from the age of 16 teaching French, Spanish and English.

- I have also recently become an External Examiner for Edexcel (one of the main British exam boards) which has given me more insight into what examiners look for in successful candidates.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher as I believe that it is important to have a fun and positive atmosphere where my students can feel comfortable, gain confidence and also have a bit of fun.

Personal Description:
Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

Hi there and thanks for viewing my profile. My name is Paul and I have been studying, researching and teaching politics since 1988 when I first started my undergraduate degree at Leeds. I gained my first degree with first class honours at Leeds, completed a PhD in Politics at Leeds in 1998 and subsequently lectured, tutored and researched in Politics / Political Economy / International Relations and European Studies at the University of Portsmouth from 1998-2015.

I took a career break from September 2015 to develop some personal projects but continue to offer tuition in politics.

My primary specialism is in the crossover between Politics and Economics (Political Economy) in a theoretical, international, global, European and policymaking context. Many students taking Politics or IR degrees struggle with the economic components of their degree, perceiving it to be a different and mathematical subject...Economic ideas and concepts are in fact central to any deep understanding of politics and IR but, happily, they are very much easier to understand than many students assume. One of my biggest strengths as a tutor is to be able to make economic ideas accessible, interesting, engaging and relevant to the non-specialist and to the student of Politics / IR. By connecting the economics very clearly to mainstream areas of politics such as political thought and public policy and by focusing on the non-mathematical aspects of economic thought, I have been able to help students overcome their initial fears about political economy and come to see it as both the fundamental - and fun - part of all social and political science .

In addition to my specialisms in PE/IPE, I have broad and deep subject knowledge having taught across the full range of Politics, Government, European Studies and International Relations subjects over the years so it is very unlikely that you would be studying something in this broad area of political and social sciences that I would not be able to cover.

And: I am very flexible and approachable: just ask if you have any queries at all!

Teaching Experience:

Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

I was Principal Lecturer in Politics/IR at Portsmouth University, Associate Head of the School of Social Historical and Literary Studies (2003-11) before moving up to a Faculty job. Overall I taught in HE at Portsmouth from 1998 until September 2015. I decided to take a voluntary career break in 2015 to develop a variety of my own pet projects but I continue to offer tuition on a private basis across the social sciences to undergraduate, postgraduate and A-level students.

I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and previously the ILT since 2001, and am currently applying for Senior Fellowship status.

In addition, I am an experienced personal and study skills tutor, a role I always took seriously at University. I see the role of a tutor as partly that of a 'coach', facilitating as much as possible your own development as a student. I honed this approach over time as a lecturer and it was especially useful in dissertation supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at Portsmouth I was nominated for and won several teaching awards including 'Most Innovative Lecturer' and 'Best Feedback'. A major strength of my teaching is that I give very positive, encouraging and constructive developmental feedback on your ideas, plans and writing combined with broad and deep subject knowledge.

As a lecturer I am highly engaging, dynamic and open and I have a gift to explaining complicated concepts in very clear and accessible ways using stories, metaphors and analogies. Indeed I am currently writing a book in which this approach is used to teach Economic concepts to non-specialists without any numbers at all - purely through stories, analogies and metaphors.

In addition to offering private tutoring I am also an accredited trainer and life coach, as well as a proof reader. So the skills sets I bring to private tuition are more diverse than just lecturing / teaching although of course I also do have that extensive classroom and tutoring experience you require (18 years!).

My main specialisms are: international and global political economy, economics for non-specialists and social scientists, public policy, British politics, comparative politics, political ideas and theory, political ideologies, international relations.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Jack!

I am currently studying History and Political Science at Swansea university with A-Levels in History, Economics and Politics & Government. I am also qualified to GCSE level in all basic subjects as well as French, Public Services, Information Technology as well as individual qualifications in Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

I am available 24/7 with the exception of lecture hours (new times not yet known but typically between 9:00 and 18:00 hours) Monday evenings and Tuesday evenings.

Teaching Experience:

I have a large amount of experience in teaching for my age and intend to enter the field as a profession once I have completed my studies. My experience ranges from tutoring my siblings at GCSE level through to assisting Bachelor's Degree students with revision, assignments and research.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tuition comprises a multi-faceted strategy that engages both the creative and rational dimensions of thought through the specially tailored use of memory-through-relation strategies as well as more traditional by-the-book approaches, varying by subject, in order to tailor each session to the specific needs and wants of every student I encounter.
