Personal Description:
I'm a 41 year old man with over 16 years experience of teaching Chemistry. I hold a BSc degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry and a Certificate of teaching in the life-long learning sector (CTLLS). I have done private tutoring in chemistry up to A level since 1997. I have taught students privately ranging from KS3 to first year undergraduate level. A few of those I taught GCSE had no hope of passing but went on to achieve grade As and proceeded to study 'A' level Chemistry. Those I taught 'A' level improved their achievement to surpass their university entry requirements for the degree courses of their choice. Many of them always made comments like, 'Wonderful explanations', 'I have understood what I have been missing all along', 'You are an excellent teacher- you made the concepts so easy for me to understand'.

I am very passionate about my teaching because I know I'll be influencing the lives of my students for the good. I always teach my students to reflect upon their performance and make the maximum effort to teach them to learn. I aim to enthuse and inspire every student about chemistry that passes through my hands helping them to find an explanation of why they are studying the subject. If they can find the reason then they can be motivated to work on the course and stick with it when the going gets tough.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching 'A' Level Chemistry since 1993. I have taught the following specifications: 1. ORC A level Chemistry A from 1993 - 2003 and then 2007 to date;
2. OCR A level Chemistry (Salters B) 2003 - 2006
3. AQA A level Chemistry 2004 - 2005 (privately)
4. IB Diploma Chemistry 2008 to date
5. AQA GCSE Chemistry 2006-2007 then 2008 to date

Tutoring Approach:

I always start with an initial assessment to find out the needs of the student which I have been called to satisfy. The session involves question and answer session over the phone or face to face and a short exercise which I will assess and feedback during the session with the student. I can travel to the student's house or better still they can come to mine. At regular intervals e.g. fortnightly I always ask for feedback about the progress of the lessons so that everything I will be teaching them matches their needs. I give assignments and tests under exams conditions to test how my students will perform in the exam and always communicate with the parents of the progress their son/daughter will be making. If I notice the conditions I will be teaching the student particularly at their home are not conducive for me to maximally discharge my service to them, I will politely ask them to address the situation or find another tutor. This is rare though.

Personal Description:
I am British, Married with two children (Grown up) both are employed after their Master Degrees.

I was graduated from Newcastle University followed by various professional qualifications A Chartered Engineer with Fellowship. I served in the British Merchant Navy for many years. While I was working in West Africa I engaged in teaching voluntarily (in my free time) English Maths and Science, to children of all ages. This made me interested in teaching. Soon I realised that this was what I wish to do after ending my career overseas. In 1998 I ended my career overseas and decided go in to teaching. In 1999 I took up teaching as a full time private tutor which I continue up to date.

All lessons are kept in line with what is taught in the school and in line with the National Curriculum. Progress of the pupil is repeatedly tested by regular home work and monthly mini tests. Parents are kept well informed through out the course of studies.
Substantial amount of revision and past paper questions are done prior to the examinations. No of mock tests are carried out to ensure that the pupil is fully prepared to achieve highest grades in the Exam. Nearly all my pupils over the years have continued with me until they entered the University of 1st choice.

Personal Description:
I live in Crawley, West Sussex and have worked in social care since completing my BA(hons) in 2000. I have worked with many different client groups of all ages, spending the last few years in a training role. I am a foster carer to an older teenager and I am just about to start working as a lecturer at a local college.

I am a positive, approachable person who will work hard to help you (and your child) to succeed.

I have just re-read my profile and feel that it makes me sound a little stuffy! I think it contains all of the information a parent/ potential student needs to know but I just want to add that I have a great sense of humour, I love being around children/ people who want to learn, am reliable and a great time keeper.

* I currently have some additional vacancies on a Saturday and weekday evenings*

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a learning support assistant in adult education classes and have completed the introductory to teaching qualification (PTTLS) and the PGCE. I am working in a FE college in Surrey, teaching across levels 1 - 3. I have recently tutored children in literacy and numeracy (KS1 & KS2). I have delivered training to adults with mental health difficulties, adults and children with learning disabilities, trainee teachers, college students and staff who work in social care. I have done this in group settings and on a 1:1 basis. I have also spent time working with the foster children who have been placed with me to improve their academic achievements, in particular, with their reading and writing skills.

I have been graded as 'outstanding' in a recent teaching observation - Dec 2013 and am happy to provide evidence of this

Tutoring Approach:

Learning needs to be fun! I strive to make sessions enjoyable, memorable and interactive because I feel that this is the best way to learn. I like to use different learning methods in my approach and will regularly carry out assessment to monitor progress. Regular progress reports on will be available to you because it is important that you know how well you (or your child) are doing and any areas that need to be focused upon.

Sessions will be individually planned and delivered so best to meet your aims and aspirations. Depending on age and ability, I think it is important that students take responsibility for their own learning and I like to set independent work to be completed at home.

When working with children, I prefer to do this in their own home.

I am currently working in the RH1 area and am happy to provide travel in this and surrounding areas during the week. I am also happy to travel further afield for a booking of 3 hours or more. Please contact me should you require any further information

Teaching Experience:

I have an experience of teaching to primary students, GCSE O Level students in a school and private A level tuitions as well. I have taught accounting to University colleagues as well in MBA.

Worked as a Lecturer

1 year of teaching experience at the biggest and most popular ACCA/CA/CIMA college.

1 Bachelors Student Corporate Finance
1 Bachelors Student Finance and Accounting of Queen Mary University
1 ACCA student for Reporting and Audit Paper

All assignments were received through UkTutors so any references required can be provided.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach towards teaching is two-fold; I explain the theoretical reasoning and then demonstrate its real life application to assist students in visualizing the practical implementation of taught concepts. I believe this is essential for students to apply their academic knowledge in professional work. I also focus on the students' ability to absorb the taught concepts and their questions while preparing the lecture.

I want to put in the experience of teaching I have gone through as a student and can better understand what student looks for and get an insight where they lack and how can that be overcome.

Personal Description:
I will be available as from the 12th of July, however I am happy to take bookings beforehand.

I am an undergraduate engineer at Cambridge University with two years of tutoring experience. I have tutored students ranging from Degree level to G.C.S.E.

I can also Teach all pure A level mathematics modules, including all further mathematics, all mechanical mathematics modules, and all A level physics modules.

I can also Teach all A level mathematics modules, including all further mathematics, and all A level physics modules.

My main engineering interests are Vibrations, Dynamics and incompressible fluid flow.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring on both a private and voluntary basis for two years with the level ranging from Degree to G.C.S.E.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends on the requirements of the student, generally improving a persons skills is a lot different than preparing them for an exam. As every person has a different way of learning I will talk to the student at the start of the program and try and work out a personalised approach that will work best for them. However if the overall goal is to pass an exam than past papers will be essential, these will need to be completed out of hours and will also be marked out of hours. This will allow us to get the most out of the time, the scripts will be given back to the student with written advice attached and discussed where necessary.

Whatever approach is taken I can guarantee that I will be infinitely patient through out, as the most important thing is the student leaves having a good understanding of the concepts and this can only be achieved at the students own pace.

Personal Description:
I studied music at Hertford College, Oxford, where I sang as a choral scholar. I now work in music as a conductor, singer, pianist and teacher. I conduct the Harpenden-based Lea Singers and the Solis Ensemble, and sing with the choir of St Albans Cathedral. I am employed as an accompanist by Portland Place School, London, and regularly accompany ABRSM and school music exams.

I am able to teach piano, theory and aural skills. I teach music GCSE and A' Level, either independently or as back-up to school classes.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught piano, theory and musicianship for many years. My experience at Portland Place School has taught me various approaches to working with younger students. My current range of teaching includes children and teenage piano students, GCSE and A' level tuition for various exam boards, and adult musicianship.

I have personal experience of dealing with children with ADHD and related concentration difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

For piano students I make it a priority to identify what music excites and inspires the student to practise. This way there is always a balance between hard work, a challenge, and enjoyment. I try to be flexible and cater to each student's tastes and needs, always with the background aim of advancing his or her technical ability and musicianship.

Tutoring is especially useful if a student is finding classroom teaching insufficient or unfulfilling. In one-to-one sessions individual problems can be identified and addressed with a more personalized approach than is possible in a classroom environment. For those who are no longer enjoying the subject, I try to reach the source of the disinterest. For those who are wanting a greater challenge than they are currently being offered, I develop exercises to push beyond the constraints of the curriculum. My emphasis is always on developing holistically as a musician.

Personal Description:
I first started tutoring some of my fellow students in Elementary Logic during my second year at University and greatly enjoyed helping people improve their understanding of the subject and gain higher marks. Once my degree was completed I began tutoring A-Level students in Religious Studies and Philosophy in the Leeds area before moving to East Sussex.

The potential of tutoring can only be maximised if each student feels comfortable in lessons, so I actively try to cultivate a good working relationship with each student. After all, if I were not enthusiastic and passionate about the subject it would be impossible to motivate any students to be enthusiastic about it! So far all my students have improved their performance by at least by two grade boundaries following tuition with me.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with students with a broad range of abilities, from those that need some extra help to reach their full potential, to those that aren't in mainstream schooling and as such don't have any previous knowledge of the subject. Some students are very visual in their learning, others are very shy and need a lot of encouragement to speak, and there are others who are extremely capable if you ask them the right questions. Using a range of resources I can tailor a programme of study to suit each student.

During my time tutoring I have noticed how easily students can lose confidence in their abilities, which at times can be a barrier in their learning. By encouraging students to ask questions, looking at what they are doing right and breaking down topics into their simplest formulation, I help the individual gain confidence in the subject and the skills to answer questions fully.3

Tutoring Approach:

My role as tutor is not only to help the student understand the concepts involved but also to gain the confidence to discuss those concepts in an analytical manner. Religious Studies and Philosophy are disciplines that greatly benefit from one-on-one tuition due to the complexity of the issues. In large lesson groups individuals can easily become confused and aren't always able to receive the instant feedback needed to further explore the subject matter.

As a tutor not only do I expand students' knowledge base but also engage students in a positive way with the subject. If students have been finding a subject difficult their enjoyment of learning can become affected and they can lose the motivation needed to gain a broader understanding. By showing enthusiasm for my subject and using relevant examples and discussion points I reintegrate fun back into learning about the subject.

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.

Personal Description:
I am very patient and love challenges. I am motivated and I made Team GB as a junior in rowing and am hoping to carry on into the Under 23 and Senior Teams. I would like to think that I am hopefully an interesting person as I have many interests such as sailing, tennis, playing the harp and reading. I am only 20 years old but I believe that it is a huge advantage as I have only recently been through the education system and am still in higher education so I can interact with younger students on a more personal level and know how to keep them interested and motivated especially as I have had very valuable and recent experience of this while tutoring a younger sibling. As I mention further down I also have a lot of experience coaching people of all ages in rowing which although it isn't French, means I have a transferable set of skills and experience.

Teaching Experience:

I am fluent in French as I was born there and lived and went to school in France till I was six. My Father is French and I speak with him in French and we go regularly back to France to visit family. I am not confident in written French as most of my written French is what I learnt at school in England, however my spoken French is native and I have a good cultural awareness of French customs. I do not have formal tutoring experience but I have tutored my sister a lot in various subjects and I also have a lot of experience coaching people of all ages and abilities at my rowing club. I may not have much experience but I am motivated and keen to gain some good experience as teaching and coaching others is something I have discovered I really enjoy.

Tutoring Approach:

I like figuring out how an individual learns and tailoring my technique to best suit any individual. I enjoy passing on my knowledge to others in the things I enjoy and hopefully inspiring them to also keep up a keen interest in those areas. As I have no formal qualifications I am more than happy to meet up beforehand for a chat so you can make a more informed decision as to whether I can offer you what you need.
