Personal Description:
I am a mathematics teacher with a master degree in mathematics and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. I am 30 years old and focus completely on private tutoring. I am patient and always have high expectations of my pupils. I am also open to feedback and willing to adapt myself to the requirements.

Teaching Experience:

1 month teaching in academics, 3 years teaching as private teacher in London, 1 year teaching as a PGCE student, another 3 years working as a secondary teacher and form tutor. I have worked full time in comprehensive schools like Bower park, Sydney Russell, Valentines, Angloeuropean high school and also in private schools such as Cranbrook College

Tutoring Approach:

I constantly assess the student in many different ways, like testing, questioning, homework and asking to elaborate explanations. I try to motivate my students with a constant interaction in my teaching. I regularly give homework that i always mark. I am happy using different resources such as ICT and different websites that facilitate the learning process.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Modern Foreign Languages, EFL and ESOL teacher. I have lived and worked in Germany (for four years in Munich and Augsburg doing aupairing, shop and office work), in Spain (teaching English for four years in Barcelona, Feuerteventura and Sevilla), and England (doing administrative work and teaching, the latter for over 15 years).

I enjoy meeting people of other nationalities and exchanging ideas about different cultures and experiences. In my free time I enjoy taking part in conversation groups in Spanish, German and English, the latter with people of a variety of cultural backgrounds. I also enjoy watching European films and TV programmes both in the languages I know and in ones that I do not. In my quiet time I enjoy reading novels both in English and in Spanish and German. In the future I would like to learn Italian!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as an EFL teacher since 1994 - teaching both abroad and in England to multi-lingual and monolingual classes. In Spain I taught children from 5 years old and businessmen in company, while in England I have taught children from 12 years old at residential summer schools and adults from 17 to 75 years of age in term time. I have also had some experience in teaching both German and Spanish at secondary schools.

I am currently teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at an FE college in Nottingham. I teach general English with classes in grammar, vocabulary and the four language skills. I also teach Study Skills, Academic English (EAP) and prepare students for IELTS examinations.

I am also experienced in preparing ESOL students for exams from Entry 1 to Level 1 and CAE. In addition, I have taught EAP (Academic English) to pre-sessional students at university.I have taught Spanish, German and English classes to adults and children; the latter to both overseas and British students.

I have given private tuition to adults and children in Spanish, German and EFL. I have also assisted school children with their reading and writing.

Tutoring Approach:

I like small group teaching which allows students to interact with each other but am equally happy to teach on a one-to-one basis. I believe in student centred, active, task based learning.

I am happy to teach in my home or travel to the clients house (for which there would be an additional charge to cover travel costs).

Personal Description:
A highly effective teacher; experienced, well organised, motivated, enthusiastic, with good sense of humour.

I establish rapport with my students. In my long career in teaching, I have learned how to make the most complex concepts in science 'digestible'. My motto is: 'Excellence in Education'.

I am a member of Pi Lambda Theta (International Honour Society for Educators).

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Teacher / Lecturer, and have taught Biology and Chemistry for over thirty years in Secondary, and Further/Higher Education in the US, the EU, and the UK. I have taught the AQA, Edexcel, OCR, and the International Baccalaureate specifications.

In addition to teaching students, I have trained teachers, as well.

Tutoring Approach:

While my Bachelor's Degree is in Biology and Chemistry, my Master's Degree is in Education with emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction, which means I have trained in designing and delivering effective lesson plans, as well as a complete curriculum. I design my instruction taking into account the student's learning style. The 'one size fits all' type of teaching is responsible for the failure of many students. Every student can learn and can do well, provided the teaching style accommodates the student's learning style, and there are no 'gaps' in what is prerequisite knowledge for taking a certain course.

Knowledge builds on pre-existing knowledge. I make certain that my students really understand and appreciate that. I diagnose any 'gaps' in content knowledge that my students may have, and I 'fill' them, providing a solid foundation for my students to build on.

Study skills, which figure prominently in my teaching, and exam technique, along with a well-rounded, in-depth knowledge of content, provide the key to success.

At the end of the course, my students not only do they have what they need to tackle the Biology or Chemistry Exam, but also a wealth of learning skills which they can apply to other subjects as well, and which they will find essential in all their future academic studies.

Educational technology supplements my instruction. The content in every session is presented on PowerPoint with quality images. I clarify every point and make certain my student has 'grasped' the present concept before I proceed with the next. Where appropriate, the PPT presentation is followed by a brief video which makes the content 'come alive'. My PowerPoint presentations, as well as my notes on PDF or Word files are available for my students after the lesson.

I finish the lesson practicing exam - style questions. It goes without saying that regular revision is important, and I provide my students with lots of past exam papers.

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.

Personal Description:
I'm a qualified French and English teacher and hold an honours degree in linguistics.

I am really interested in child development and love observing what makes children tick when they are learning and fully engaged in something they enjoy. I try to replicate this in all of my lessons.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my children, read, make things and chat with my friends.

Teaching Experience:

One year in a successful Shropshire school teaching English and French

One year in a challenging Wrexham school teaching English

One year in a Shropshire school teaching French and English

One year in Modern languages departments in Telford and Shropshire

Several smaller placements in schools across Cheshire

Six months working on a one-to-one basis with pupils finding it difficult to engage with their school work

Tutoring Approach:

People learn in a variety of ways (verbal/visual/tactile/abstract) and as such I believe work should be adapted to each learner to match the way they learn best.

Personal Description:
Even though academia has always been a passion of mine, I also engage in various other activities such as socialising, reading and playing sports. Most would describe me as an enthusiastic, friendly and intuitive character.

Teaching Experience:

Having tutored various students growing up in Economics and Maths, I have taught at GCSE and A Level standard. Additionally, I have had classroom experience from volunteering as an English and Maths teacher at a school in Accra, Ghana.

Tutoring Approach:

One of my main reasons to start tutoring is because of my natural flair for academia, especially for the aspects that many find difficult such as the revision and examination process. I have always been described as helpful and would naturally find myself drawn towards helping others with their academic difficulties. Knowing that this was a passion of mine, tutoring seemed to be a natural course for my career.

Personal Description:
I work freelance in tutoring, teaching and proof-reading and am currently working in local secondary schools as a cover supervisor. I have interests in a range of areas,, including drama and art. I plan to combine teaching and tutoring with work as an illustrator in the near future.
I have also performed spoken-word poetry in Manchester and headlined a couple of nights.
I am quite successful at pub quizzes due to having a large and random range of interests, including history, science and culture and luckily having the sort of memory that recalls useful facts.
I believe that work should be integrated into the rest of life and that learning never ends.
I enjoy teaching and tutoring because it gives me an opportunity to meet a huge variety of people and to encourage them to develop confidence and life skills. I also like a job invovling communication and rapid results.

Teaching Experience:

I have five years teaching A-Level and GCSE English, as well as tutoring and teaching Latin. Also experience of teaching English to students from around the world, both here and in Europe. I have worked particularly with students aged 14-19 and with students retaking GCSE English with some reluctance.

For the past four summer I have taught university entrance and study-skills at Southampton University, helping students to improve their essay-writing and critical reading as well as helping refine their English grammar performance.

I have seen many different GCSE English assessment methods and boards and have been able to teach the fundamental similiarities of cirtical reading and directed writing that underlie all these varieties. I am also confident in being able to explain English grammar to current assessment standards.

I can also teach more detailed and challenging reading and writing strategies through helping students prepare for university courses and study A-Levels and Access Level 3. I am particularly interested in English literature and poetry.

I have also taught Latin, Film Studies, Politics and GCSE Maths. I designed and ran a Latin evening course for a few terms.

Tutoring Approach:

I think Students need to enjoy the subject in order to understand it fully and to be able to work flexibly in exams and coursework, When they approach questions from a position of confidence and relaxation, they can answer them more effectively.

A tutor works best when providing an alternative to school-based education and a good tutor will enable their student to explore around a topic and to discuss any particular issues and concerns.

I have found that lack of confidence is one of the main barriers to success and that this can often be overcome with the right exercises and personal attention. Another issue that often comes up is confusion about the exact requirements of an exam or assessment. This is an area that can benefit greatly from tutoring support. It is much easier to study once the expectations and structures of a course are made clear.

Personal Description:
Enthusiastic with a restless intelligence, thirsty for knowledge, always keen to discover more, I am continually fascinated by the interplay between culture and society. I have expert knowledge in English and American Literature, the history of cinema, and the development of western philosophy. I resigned from my post as head of department at a large comprehensive school so that I would have more time to write my book comparing the films of Preminger and Hitchcock. Freed from the administrative demands of a school, I have even more energy and creativity to devote to teaching, and will have a powerfully positive impact on whoever I tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have over thirty years' experience in a wide variety of educational contexts: at universities in Britain and abroad, in comprehensive schools, FE colleges, language schools and professional training. I have worked as a A Level examiner and moderator for over ten years, so understand exactly what students need to do to impress markers, and can advise on how to avoid mediocrity. I have been tutoring online for two years, and find that the level of concentration in a Skype session is usually higher than in person: the start is crisper, the learning more focused.

Tutoring Approach:

Fun, exciting, inspiring. I love the stimulating variety of one-to-one tuition. Over the years, I have adapted my plans, materials and methods to meet the specific needs, aims and expectations of an extremely wide variety of learners in terms of ability, personality and specialisation. At one end of the scale, I trained Swedish officers in media relations ahead of their deployment with the UN in Bosna, and spent eight weeks one-to-one with the head of personnel of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, improving his presentation skills. At the other end of the scale, I had notable success tutoring a teenager with emotional and behavioural difficulties who had been permanently excluded from school for violence, and was in local authority care. Working with him individually for three hours a day, concentrating on English, Maths and History, I had a very positive and potentially transformative impact. At every point in scale, I treat individuals with respect and dedication, determined to help them achieve their potential.

Currently studying an MEng Degree in Software Engineering with a placement in a locally-based software engineering company. I have previously completed a HND in Computing and Systems Development with distinctions in every module, and achieved A* grades in GCSE and A level ICT. I have experience developing in a number of programming languages, including Java, C#, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and SQL. I have experience with both coursework and theoretical aspects of these courses and would be more than happy to help!

Teaching Experience:

-Experience delivering tuition to individuals and small groups through workshops delivered in the Apple Store, Victoria Square
-Delivered a series of Apple "Summer Camps" to children aged between 8-13 through the summer of 2015.
-Experience delivering coding classes and talks to peers.
-Tutored peers through A Levels and HND in regards to coursework and theory work.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends on whether the student needs support with the practical (coursework) side or the theory. With the theory, I often look through past papers with the student to establish common questions and work to get the most succinct and correct answer. With practical problems I would often set a smaller, simpler challenge related to the problem which can help the student understand, and then apply to their own coursework.

Personal Description:
Hello, i'm a third year Biology student at Swansea University currently doing dissertation work on parasitology. I feel that learning should ALWAYS be fun and interactive as well as informative. I am currently at 2:1 level at university and know about all the stress and anxiety that schooling can put on you. I am very outgoing and friendly, and believe my skillset would help out persons who just need that extra bit of help. I am doing biology at University, but undertook my A-Levels in History, Geography, and Biology, getting A*A and a B respectively. I hope that i can be of service and help you or your child to reach the level they can achieve!

Teaching Experience:

I have done causal tutoring in the past, for family friends and my younger brother. I believe that being a student myself has given me a good insight in what approach to take to tutoring, and that this approach can be more beneficial and cheaper than some professional tutoring agencies.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring to me is a special role you can play in someones education, giving them a non-formal setting to learn new ideas information, while outside the stress of exams and teachers. I believe learning should ALWAYS be fun and interactive, as well as informative, but a balance needs to be struck. I use computer resources as well as books to provide an all round learning experience.
