Personal Description:
I am currently a PhD candidate at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and my area of interest is Public Health and Policy. I am actually from the Caribbean from the islands of Trinidad and Tobago and my aspirations as a young health care professional is to work towards an academic career as a professor. I love teaching! I come from a family of teachers and I believe that this is what I was born to do. I have had just over 12years experience thus far teaching various ages, stages and lifestyles (see below) and I look forward to continue impressing and improving great minds.

Teaching Experience:

8 years Primary School teaching experience for ages 9 - 12years

10 years Secondary School teaching experience for Math, English, Integrated Science and Biology (all forms)
Computer Science/ IT tutor for adults and children for Introductory level Microsoft Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access).

Undergraduate (Bachelors) Degree Tutor for Premedical Sciences and Life Science programs (courses: Genetics, Molecular Biology, Community Health, Dissertation

Masters Level Lecturer and Dissertation Supervisor in Public Health for MSc and MPH programmes at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the University of Essex

Workshop/ Seminar Leader for Government Health Officials in the areas of - HIV, Monitoring and Evaluation of Programs, Disease Surveillance - Epidemiology, and Healthy Living.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been a teacher all of my adult life and as a result I have adopted a combined teaching style in order to accommodate my various student types. I believe it is important to be flexible yet while I exhibit my own personal style. My education is both British (Caribbean) and North American influenced by the warmth of my Caribbean heritage. As a result students have described me to be very down to earth and approachable yet practical in terms of explanations and examples. I try my very best to ensure that my students (regardless of age) are able to have a very sound understanding especially with reference to problem solving and more importantly deriving the steps required to work out the logistics as well as exam techniques. Essentially, my goal is to ensure that my student is confident and successful!

Personal Description:
I have been studying Spanish, French and Italian for many years and have gained numerous qualifications. Living in several European countries has also enabled me to develop my language skills to the extent that I am now confident in my ability to teach these languages to others.

I am currently studying for an ITTT course to update my teaching skills.

Teaching Experience:

I am approaching the end of my first year of language tutoring and have enjoyed the experience. I look forward to continuing my tutoring through UK tutors as well as other bodies. I have had one or two lessons to teach and wish to gain more experience by doing more. My aim is to become a freelance tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be interested in teaching Spanish, French and Italian to either young children or adults. I make use of the latest technologies that will make it a pleasure for you to develop new language skills.

I will help you develop skills in listening, reading, speaking and writing as I think these have an important part in every day life in foreign languages.

I am flexible, approachable and patient and will tutor you to whichever level you need.

Personal Description:
I am a Postgraduate Engineer from one of the most prestigious Technological University in Asia and have more than 5 years of Experience working and training in two of the Bulge Bracket multinational Investment Banks.

Right since my primary education days, I have been passionate about solving mathematical problems and brain teasers. In fact, is is my favorite pastime even now.

I got a medal for scoring 100% marks in National Mathematics Olympiad Contest at the High School Level.

For this reason, to continue my passion, I chose to graduate in a numerate discipline like Engineering and further joined Investment Banks where I was involved in extensive mathematical modelling of the financial markets.

I believe getting down to the level of the student and imagine myself when I began learning those concepts. This motivates me to lay the concepts before the student in a succinct manner which they can readily absorb.

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching during my graduation on a part time basis in 2000 teaching Physics and Mathematics to A Level Students.

Thereafter, when I joined my Post-Graduate Studies, I was offered a post of a teaching assistant by my professor in the University to teach Engineering Mechanics and Mathematics to students.

Last but not the least, I have also taught at an Institute providing coaching for CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) over the weekends.

Tutoring Approach:

I am pretty confident about my teaching approach as I provide the initial half an hour session as a Demo free of cost. In case you wish to continue further, only then you need to pay for it.

As I have already mentioned, I adapt my teaching style as per the competence and intellectual prowess of the candidate.

I believe that nothing is difficult to understand provided sufficient time and opportunity to practice is given to the student to master the concept.

That's the reason it is important to pace according to the rate at which a student can comfortably absorb.

Also, progressive levels of difficulty in concepts should be delivered in a structured manner. This will ensure the development of a basic methodology to break the problem into small bits and tackle it individually.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during classes, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring, and thus customers get the most of their time & money as well.

Personal Description:
I am currently a fifth year medical student at Addenbrookes Hospital and Queens' college, Cambridge. I achieved a first class in my second year coming 39th out of 340 students. I graduated last year with a BA Cantab. I offer tutoring in Biology and Physics up to A-Level / Advanced Higher level and Chemistry and Maths to GCSE. I live in Cambridge and have my own transport. My own academic interests are in Pathology and Physiology. During the summer of 2012 I will be involved in a UCL project looking at genetic adaptation involved in pregnancy at altitude in Nepal. I am very enthusiastic and enjoy teaching, so that I can pass on some of my enthusiasm and knowledge to others so that they can succeed. I have always been dedicated to achieving high academic goals and am very approachable and friendly.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last 2 years I have tutored 8 different students at GCSE level in science and maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to:
1.) Inspire my students to set high academic goals and to achieve them.
2.) Provide high quality teaching in a way that makes the subject matter interesting.
3.) Give guidance on learning and revision techniques in order to instill confidence and discipline in studying.

In more detail:
1.) I believe that, given a stimulating learning environment, a disciplined approach to learning and exam preparation and confidence in one's abilities, most students reading science courses should be able to attain goals that may seem challenging at first. Having recently experienced the sharp end of university application procedures I feel that I am also in a good position to offer advice and guidance on higher education applications (particularly medical applications), including interview preparation and personal statement advice.

2.) I aim to teach underlying concepts and principles as a priority. A basic grasp of these allows finer detail to be added on top and avoids the large amounts of learning by rote that is sometimes associated with science courses. I will also, wherever possible, try to extend students' interest beyond the syllabus, as enthusiasm for a subject is a huge step on the way towards academic success.

3.) Just as the understanding of science subjects requires good application of underlying themes, learning and revision can be greatly improved by a structured approach. I aim to pass on study skills that I have learnt myself as well as spend time, if a particular examination is forthcoming, focusing on exam technique.

Personal Description:
I am a lighthearted, focused and friendly actress, with a passion for new people and experiences. I have trained for a year at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic arts (LAMDA), where i was exposed to a great deal of new experiences, and was challenged daily. I believe that nothing is ever hard, but just a challenge to overcome and grow as a individual from. I have also trained at the National Youth Theatre, and have a BTEC in performing arts.

I have worked in a wide variety of jobs, and have consequently gained a large number of transferable skills, such as the ability to gain and maintain a rapport with clients/people/customers.I am very interested in what an Individual has to offer, and love seeing people find their true talent

Recently I have performed at The Soho Theatre, The Bush Theatre and have been involved with the national youth theatre.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first step into private tuition I have experience assisting drama workshops in schools, and have sat on the audition panel of the National youth Theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

Having received Private Drama tuition myself many years ago i am very aware of how important it is to be comfortable with your tutor. I therefore aim to create an extremely relaxed and open atmosphere in order for the tutee to reach their full potential.

I believe that drama classes can be used for anything from gaining confidence, to helping with speeches, but most of all i think they can help you learn much more about yourself and the people around you.

I aim to help clarify speeches, encourage students to reach their full potential, engage in a two way discussion about the piece they are studying and in doing so help them discover exactly what their objective is. This should all be fun and open.

Every student is different, and it is my responsibility to adapt and be aware of this.

Personal Description:
I have always been very passionate about maths right from a very young age ergo it has been the subject I have throughout excelled in during my academic life. I have recently graduated with a 2.1 in Maths with Business at University of Surrey. Having done A-level Maths (with over 97% in all core modules) and Further Maths as well as Maths and Additional Maths at O-levels, Iam equipped with a solid foundation when it comes to tutoring Maths. Apart from academic stuff, I try to indulge in different maths activities such as UK Senior Maths challenge or Senior Maths Team challenge (on behalf of college). Iam also a Business Advisor for Young Enterprise UK's company programme.

Teaching Experience:

I haven't got an official experience as such but I have been tutoring my friends and family over years. They have always recommended me to get into teaching since they say that I have all the qualities to be a great teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is not at all fixed. Since maths has different aspects to it so I approach every student based on their weaknesses which I discuss on the first meeting. This means if someone has difficulties in remembering formulas, I work accordingly. If someone gets confused on how to approach a question, I adapt a different style. So it all depends on my tutee-which area he needs to work most on.

Personal Description:
My name is Daniele and I am originally from Rome. I have more than 15 years experience as Italian language coach/teacher in the world of opera: I hold a permanent teaching post at the Royal College of Music and coach regularly at the Royal Opera House. I have also worked, amongst other institutions, at Paris Opera, Opéra de Lille, Opera North, Scottish Opera, Welsh National Opera, and the Royal Academy of Music.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced Italian language teacher, and teach private one to one lessons either in Hackney, where I am based, or at the Royal College of Music in South Kensington.
I teach students of all ages, levels and aspirations.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor the lessons to meet the student's needs, ability and aspirations.
When possible I try to follow a textbook, as I think this gives a good structure to our courses. The student would be expected to do some homework between lessons, as this is hugely beneficial to learning.
The aim is to enable the student to 1) read and understand Italian, 2) speak and express oneself, 3) write and 4) understand when listening.
The atmosphere is friendly and informal.

Personal Description:
I'm a friendly, approachable person who enjoys supporting students to learn and develop their skills and confidence. Students tell me that I'm encouraging, patient, fun, supportive, organised and explain things well.
I enjoy supporting overseas students who are studying at university in the UK and can help you to develop your academic English skills, confidence and help with proof reading and preparation of university coursework, essays and assignments.
I also work with adults who live in the UK who want to improve their reading and writing skills. These may be native English speakers or people who have English as a second or additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE in Adult, Higher and Further Education with a subject specialism in Adult Literacy. I've taught literacy in FE colleges and in community education and have tutored adults privately. I've taught in London, Hertford, Bolton and Stockport and have over 6 years' literacy teaching experience. My students do well in their exams and build confidence in a secure and supportive environment. I have been rated Grade 1 'Outstanding' in all my teaching inspections.
I have a RSA/Cambridge CELTA (Grade B) Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. I have over taught academic English at Manchester Metropolitan University and ESOL in further education colleges in the UK. In addition, I've taught EFL at language schools in London and Manchester in the UK, and in Poland, China and Japan. I have over 6 years' experience teaching EFL.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to get to know students and understand how they like to learn and what learning styles don't work for them. I spend time finding out what students find easy and difficult and what their goals for learning are. We can set targets together and really focus on what you need to achieve. It's important to me that students feel comfortable and supported in their learning in order to make good progress. I will plan for our sessions based on your learning goals and mark work and go through it with you.
I am organised, experienced and have been graded 'Outstanding' in all my workplace teaching inspections.
If you're an overseas university student I can develop your academic English skills and help with course work, proofreading essays and projects etc.
If you're an English speaker but want to improve your reading and writing to get promotion at work, help your kids with their learning, or to brush up your skills before studying again or for any other reason, I can help with all of this, too.

Personal Description:
My name is Ellen and I have been teaching for fourteen years. I have a vast amount of interests and hobbies. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the cinema, eating out, theatre, walking, reading, eBay and I also work in a shop part-time too.
I have a clean driving license and I am willing to travel to pupil's houses, or they're welcome to be tutored at mine.
I am hard-working, committed and always eager to learn. I rarely have a day off sick, I just keep going!
I am also a member of a local meet up group, which is based in Chester and North Wales. I often participate in these events, I feel it has allowed me to meet more like-minded people. I'm a land lady on rented property, so I have to be professional and organised. This is when my teaching skills come into place!
I strongly believe you have to live life to the full, and grab every opportunity you can. Life's too short.

Teaching Experience:

I have a vast amount of teaching experience. I have taught in the primary sector, ranging from Nursery up to Year Six.
Within my teaching career, I have been a History and PSHE Co-ordinator, where I was responsible for up-dating the school's policy, ordering resources, monitoring other teachers performance in these subjects and organising educational visits too.
I always ensure children's work is marked daily, with constructive or positive comments on their work. I also think praising the children is important, this is done through reward systems. When in permanent teaching positions, I have always ensured that the environment is bright, colourful, fresh and stimulating. Wall displays, illustrating children's work from a varied ability is important.
I always ensure affective discipline is carried out in the classroom and I always accommodate for each child's needs, differentiating if necessary.
During my teaching career I have organised class assemblies in front of the whole school, ensuring that each child has a piece of reading to be read or an acting role to be carried out, the assemblies often link to their theme they've been learning that particular term.
I always follow the Foundation Curriculum and the National Curriculum in a professional way.
I can work as part of a team and communicate with parents on a professional level. I'm hard-working and always ensure that children are happy and stimulated in their learning environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been tutoring since 2007, however, in 2012 I did take a break. I always ensure my lessons are appropriate for the child's learning, and after a day at school, I always try to make the lessons as stimulating as possible.
Sometimes the tasks may relate to the child's experience, this is done through reading and writing. I also incorporate celebrations and multi-cultural events in the lessons too, I feel this broadens the child's outlook in life.
My lessons incorporate writing, reading and comprehension.
I always give feedback to the child and parents at the end of each lesson. I ensure my lessons are delivered in a professional manner.

Teaching Experience:

The one thing that irritated me most throughout education was the heavy work loads and pressure you're given - at a young age this can be a very stressful time. I believe that the key to a students learning is to take things step by step, working on smaller pieces of work at a time and working slowly up to bigger loads of work. I aim to provide a fun teaching experience and aim to assist with students learning development.

In addition to tutoring sessions I can provide help and assistance via email and can also provide online tutoring (at a fee) via Skype messaging service. Parents or guardians of pupils at a younger age can contact me at any time and I will keep in close contact to ensure the parent(s)/guardian(s) and student feels happy and positive with the development.

Tutoring Approach:

I find the most import aspect of tutoring is to work out what the student needs help with most. It's about working in steps and ensuring the pupil learns more and more from each step. There is no pressure and due to not long having left education I understand most how frustrating education can be at a young age. I apply a fun and calm style to tutoring and ensure the pupil is happy at all times.
