Personal Description:
HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND SUCCESSFUL TUTOR WITH 8 YEARS TEACHING AND TUTORING EXPERIENCE.

I have a 1st Class Hons degree in Biology from Imperial College London and a PGCE from Kings College London.
I have extensive assessment experience including as an examiner for OCR, giving me an excellent insight into what students actually get the marks for at GCSE and how to answer questions successfully.

I have wide experience in teaching Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (ages 11-18) and have been consistently graded either Good or Outstanding in my lessons.

Additionally, I have tutored a number of primary students to raise confidence or prepare them for secondary school.

I am passionate about my subject and am keen to pass this on to my students.

I have a record of excellent results for students in all 3 sciences and a proven track record at getting pupils to their target grade or better.

Teaching Experience:

KS3 Science and maths
KS4 Triple and double science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology, GCSE and BTEC)
KS5 Biology

I have taught for 8 years in London and Bristol, at key stage 3, 4 and 5 for both double award and triple science GCSE and A level for biology which is my main specialist subject.

I have been graded as outstanding in the majority of my lesson observations over my teaching career and have an excellent record of achievement with all of my classes.

I am very experienced in tutoring science and confidently offer maths as an additional subject to GCSE.

I am currently teaching at School in Bristol where I am teaching KS3, KS4 Science (both the triple and the double award) and A level biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tutor according to individuals needs. I am happy to work through homework, coursework and projects and to help students revise, depending on their requirements for that session, although I will not simply give out the answers but will help them work them out.
I am flexible with my tutoring and am happy to do it weekly or more or less regularly depending on what is is desired, as I only accept a few students at a time, in order to fully cater for my students.

I aim to build a relationship with my students where they are happy to ask any and all questions and lead their own learning in this way. I find that the range of methods and resources I have acquired as a qualified teacher help me to tutor to the individual needs of the student. I am more than happy to adapt methods of learning to assist students learning.

I am usually able to bring a good range of resources but request that pupils provide their school work and books so I can make sure I am teaching the right things.

Personal Description:
I trained as an actor at Arts Educational schools and have twenty five years experience working as an actor, director and writer. For ten years I worked as an audio director, directing many of the UK's leading actors in recordings of 150 audio books, poetry collections and drama. As a writer I have seen my plays produced in repertory theatre and by small touring companies and have also written for TV's 'The Bill'. I now work regularly as a corporate role-play actor, often using improvisation. I enjoy the range and variety of my work and believe this brings a greater depth of understanding and knowledge to my teaching. I teach young adults aged 16 and over and adults of any age.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career as an actor-teacher, working for small theatre companies touring schools, often leading drama workshops on educational themes. I was also Assistant Lecturer in Contemporary Theatre at the London branch of Boston University, teaching American young adults. I have been teaching private students since 2003, including business people wishing to improve their communication and presentation skills, poets who wish to perform their work live, and corporate trainers seeking voice coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach at my home or travel locally, providing a safe, relaxed and supportive environment in which students can learn practical skills, build their confidence and discover their true ability. Lessons are tailored to meet the specific learning needs of the student, whether they are learning for fun or professional development. I work through voice and elocution techniques and performance skills for presenting.

Personal Description:
* Taught English GCSE for over 16 years

* GCSE examiner

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English at KS3, 4 and 5 for over 15 years. I am experienced at preparing students for SATS exams, GCSE and A level. Additionally I have helped adults to improve their reading and writing skills from helping them to update their CV to sitting an exam. I am also an examiner for AQA and OCR. I currently teach GCSE English and Functional English to KS4 students.

Tutoring Approach:

When we meet I will initially assess your child's needs and set out clear targets for us to focus on. I will offer lots of guidance and coaching in your child's areas of weakness. Your child's progress is reviewed at the end of each term and new targets are set as appropriate. I provide an overview for parents of what each session covered and I also set weekly homework. Experience has shown that private tuition works best with the support of your child's class teacher. Therefore I like to liaise with your child's teacher to see how I can support what is happening at school.

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:
My name is Andrew and I currently live in Fleet, Hampshire. I studied Fine Art up until degree level which I accomplished a 1st class BA Hons Degree in Fine Art. I paint mostly portraiture in a hyper-realistic fashion however I have also experimented with many different and expressive styles of art work, as well as sole abstract work.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work for the Meath Epilepsy trust in Godalming where I teach as an observational and technical instructor for the mental health adult clients who live there. There I work closely with the students building up their personal portfolio in their art work consisting of painting, drawing, charcoal and pastel mark making equipment.

I also teach privately and run art workshops in my spare time in which I teach mature students art techniques in drawing and painting. My main qualities in teaching come from portraiture and painting with acrylic and oil paint.

Recently I have completed the PTLLS teaching training course and wish to continue my studies in teaching within the near future.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that teaching is about personal connection with your students and interacting with them on their level rather than simply 'getting the job done'. I can teach someone how to do something and for them to copy my influence is something however to teach someone to do it well themselves without my aid takes time to practice over and over certain techniques and my advice. I think a student should be taught from the ground upwards and by neglecting bad influences from the past the student can become highly skilled and more importantly 'satisfied' with their work and practice.
I teach my students by constantly reminding them of basic principles of drawing/painting techniques and methods for which the student automatically revises their own work and own mistakes alone.

Personal Description:
I am a Maths Mentor in a secondary school with a CRB in London with a Bachelor degree with 1st Class Honours from Warwick University. On weekdays, I work in a financial institution and providing tuition to students on weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I have 1 year teaching experience to GCSE Foundation and Higher Maths paper.
This year result was good, few of my students have improved from F to a C grade.

Tutoring Approach:

My tuition style depends very much on the student's individual needs. Gaining confidence is the key in improving Mathematics grades. I also like to share my life experience which I believe is beneficial to help another one believe nothing is impossible to archive if they work hard. Helping the student to find their abilities is key. I strive to help them enjoy their subject and develop not only during tuition but also in broader terms with regards to self directed learning.
I am available after 6pm on Wednesday and most time on weekends.

Personal Description:
My name is Ed. I graduated from Durham University with 1st class honours in Maths and Physics. I have achieved straight A result with six A-levels including Maths, Further Maths, German, Physics, Chemistry and Chinese. I am an experienced tutor and have previously tutored students from a variety of schools and institutions. I am patient and my primary focus is to help you achieve your goals and objectives.

I currently work in the finance industry. I also work as a private tutor for a top tutoring company in central London. I am flexible and can travel to you.

I am available on the weekends as well as weekday evenings.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I can provide you references if required.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor at Bonas Macfarlane, London, July 2010 - Present
I tutor a variety of subjects at different levels from primary schools to A-levels. I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Chinese. I also offer service on giving academic advice as well as interview techniques for entering into top schools and universities in the UK.

Private Tutor at Bright Young Things, London, September 2012 - Present
Bright Young Things is the second largest tutoring agency after Bonas Macfarlane whom I also work for. With Bright Young Things my focus had been Maths at A-level and GCSE.

University Marker, Department of Mathematics, Durham University, October 2009 - May 2010
I mentored second year Maths undergraduates at Durham University. I have learned to work through the arguments and thought processes of others and give constructive feedback.

Sixth Form Tutor, Framwellgate Sixth Form College, Durham, October 2006 - June 2009
I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years. I helped all of my tutees achieve more than what they were initially targeting to achieve. I also learned to prepare teaching materials and adopt various teaching methods.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is as follows.

As for Maths and science related subjects, at the outset I will go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students through taking the initiative on specific and more challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are motivated and encouraged to constantly self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

As for German and Chinese, I strive to make the lesson as interactive as I can. I am experienced in teaching beginners as well as students that have learnt the language for a number of years.

I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

Personal Description:
I began having Japanese lessons at school when I was eleven years old and continued to study the language for a further seven years. I completed GCSE Japanese- A* and GCE A Level Japanese-B before coming to the University of Leeds to study BA Japanese and Philosophy.
I have been lucky enough to have visited Osaka as an exchange student during my A-Level studies and also to have co-hosted an exchange student. These experiences were key in making me want to pursue learning Japanese as well as teach others about the language and culture.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught beginner Japanese lessons in primary schools and at my previous school supported secondary students with their Japanese studies. During my time in Japan I was able to assist Japanese friends at school with their learning of English as well as teach my host family key English phrases.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning a new language should be interactive and enjoyable. I encourage students to get stuck in and be prepared to learn from mistakes in order to develop a thorough understanding and sound knowledge of Japanese. The benefit of studying Japanese creatively and through the use of games, flashcards and evaluative quizzes is a relaxed approach to study and in my experience, steady achievement.

Like any language, when learning Japanese, practice makes perfect so lessons are at a pace ideal for the student in order to maximize progress. A balanced approach to both writing, reading and speaking are essential so I am keen to deliver a variety of exercises in lessons.

Most importantly I want students to enjoy learning Japanese as much as I love to teach it.

Subjects
  • Japanese
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£9 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£12.5 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Ian and I would be a female tutor. I was born in Malaysia and I have travelled to New Zealand and Australia for academic and research purposes. I have recently passed my PhD Viva and currently preparing for a major move to Orkney Islands. Even though English is not my first language, I have a great understanding in the subject of Organic Chemistry, I have ample tips for studying chemistry along side with basic knowledge in Math.

Teaching Experience:

I was a Campus Coach during my academic years in New Zealand. I would help 1st and 2nd year university students from our science department with their studies. This include giving them motivation to learn, tips for note-taking, managing time meeting all kind of assignments, giving advice on who they should approach for more academic and social help.

Recently, I was a lab demonstrator and Chemistry tutor during my academic year at University of Glasgow. I assisted students in the safe execution of the experiment, safe and proper operation and handling of lab equipment, chemicals and glassware. I was actively engaged with the students in discussions about the experiment. I also collected and grade pre-lab assignments in a timely manner, enter grades in record book, and circulate to give individual feedback to students. In addition, I was responsible for reporting any problems/incidents/inconsistencies immediately to the instructor and replenish/prepare any chemicals or supplies if asked upon with help from the technicians. I had the first-hand experience as a marker of assignments and lab reports, so I will know what to expect from a good to excellent answers to given questions.

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 usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique.

Feel free to drop me a line if you need help with your homework. If there is any single topic of Chemistry you need some clarification and understanding, don't delay!

I have also certificates by the University of Alicante, the International University Menéndez Pelayo and the Pennsylvania State University that show my experience and knowledge teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

Previously, I gained my M.A. in Applied Linguistics and Language Acquisition in Multilingual Contexts at the Universitat de Barcelona. Here I developed my knowledge about bilingual and multilingual education and societies, Sociolinguistics, languages in contact, methodology and statistics. Moreover, I specialized in Educational Sociolinguistics with my M.A. Thesis "From Primary to Secondary School: a Case Study of Changes in Language Attitudes among Students of the Bilingual Programs in Alacant". Results and conclusions of this M.A. Thesis have been presented in several international congresses (AESLA, 1st International Congress on Bilingual Education at the University of Cordoba, XVI International Congress from the Spanish Society of Language and Literatura Didactics among others).

I also received graduate education in Hispanic Linguistics at the Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA) where I learned everything related to Phonology, Syntax and First Language Acquisition. Finally, I got my BA in English Philology at the University of Alicante (Spain) majoring in Linguistics and Catalan.

In my free time, I love swimming, watching TV shows and films as well as going to the theatre to enjoy plays and musicals.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working as a Spanish language assistant at two high schools in Aberdeenshire (Scotland) and I am also in charged of the Spanish Club for the staff members of one of the high schools.

I also worked as a teacher or English as a foreign language at the private academy Climbing English Centre (Alicante) where I gained experience teaching English to people of any age range: from babies who were 2 years old up to elderly people who were 60/70 going through teenagers who were between 13 up to 18 years old or adults trying to get official certificates from Cambridge University and TRINITY. I also offered private lessons to students in primary, secondary and post-secondary education.

Moreover, as part of my teaching qualification, I did my internship of teaching English as a foreign language ate the bilingual state high school IES San Vicente (San Vicente del Raspeig, Alicante).

As part of my experience at Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA), I received teaching instruction and worked as a Spanish lecturer in basic and intermediate undergraduate Spanish courses.

Finally, I also worked as au pair in Oxfordshire (England). I was in charged of three siblings who were 13, 10 and 9. I had to take care of them, entertain them and teach Spanish as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

All my personal experiences learning and teaching foreign languages have shown me the important role that teachers, language assistants and tutors play in a classroom setting and, specially, in the long journey of learning a new language.

Furthermore, being a language learner for so many years has given me the ability to predict and to overcome difficulties that students may have in the process of acquiring a language.

Additionally, I believe that a language is linked to cultural aspects which enrich it and make it more interesting. This is why I look for resources that transmit the vast culture that Spanish carries and I try to create didactic materials that appeal to students' interests so as to keep them motivated and interested. I usually introduce the content and then the students have to solve a task (task-based teaching).

Based on the previous ideas, I feel working as a tutor would provide me with the perfect setting to develop my teaching skills and I am willing to contribute to my total commitment and enthusiasm to the teaching of my own culture, my two native languages and English as a foreign language.
I am also looking for new challenges in the work and research world so as to keep learning and gaining professional experience.
