Personal Description:
I am a technical safety engineer with specialization in design assurance and risk management.

I have master of science degree in Safety engineering,Reliability and Risk management and a certified Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner( NEBOSH)

When am not doing my professional assignment as Technical Safety Professional , I love to play football ,do some motivational chat and brainstorming analysis of current issues(political,cultural or economic) with friends .

I am always on the look out to impact knowledge and get anyone I meet enlightened as much as I could.

Teaching Experience:

I have experiences teaching across different levels, ranging GCSE to University level as well professional training . I have almost 15 years teaching experience on part-time basis.

I have been mostly involved in teaching mathematics , physics and 1st and 2nd year university Engineering courses - Applied Electricity, Thermodynamics and other mathematical/statistical subjects. I also train professionals in Oil and Gas Industry in Risk Management , Technical Safety as well as Occupational Health and Safety ( I am Professionally Certified by NEBOSH- National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health, UK)

Tutoring Approach:

I like to start from the fundamentals then moved into understanding of the complex areas. Once the basic principles are well understood, mastery comes through continuous practices. Creating a lot of illustrations with life scenario examples that help good memory is another of my strategic way of impacting knowledge.

Work examples , studying past questions for those with upcoming exams and teaching on different style of effective studying, have proved to be successful in my years of teaching. I am also available to develop notes, questions and answers on any particular subjects I am teaching.

I always create a relaxed and interactive environment for my student to learning . I naturally enjoy impacting knowledge and get so fulfilled when I see my students progressing better.

Personal Description:
A Master of Mathematics graduate from UEA in Norwich, with a year studying in Melbourne Australia. I have great experience tutoring with various age groups and personalities.

I have enjoyed tutoring part time and full time for the past few years whilst learning a Postgraduate Diploma course since University. I was subsequently contracted in by a local college to provide individual and group tutoring sessions to underachieving students, during and after school.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring GCSE maths in Year 13, providing a very structured learning by my school. The students engaged well and it helped to have people of a similar age that the students could relate to, enabling a more relaxed learning atmosphere. I also informally helped peers of various levels whilst at university, maths students but also engineering and foundation levels. When my services were required in a particular area, then they asked for help on short notice.

On top of this I've been tutoring over the past 4 years, usually working 7 days a week from the new year onward. Peak hours ranged in excess of 40hrs of tutoring for several months. I've therefore assessed the likely weaknesses of a student and have already provided and perfected methods of explanation.

Tutoring Approach:

Can look at casual tutoring of areas of difficulty, or can do more structured learning of a curriculum, either intense learning or weekly troubleshooting. I've established good quality material for any level. Plenty of students just require good material and direction for their efforts.

The first meeting will be free with the aim of getting to know one another and the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, and at what pace the student requires. At which point a structured plan of action can be drawn up. In some cases the tutee may lack the confidence in areas, but can in fact do what's required. Even a casual troubleshooting session every now and then can set their worries at rest.

Should extracurricular material be required or wanted then I'll be happy to provide. This material might not be hard for the tutee, but will help link in various areas of mathematics and will require a little thought about the patterns seen.

My current timetable (free to book anytime other than between the times below, already accounted for travel time):
Mondays: booked 5pm onward
Tuesdays: booked 6pm - 8pm
Wednesdays: booked 3.30pm onward
Thurdsays: booked 5.30pm onward

Saturdays: free between 3pm - 5.30pm

Personal Description:
As a post-graduate and former scientist, I have been tutoring chemistry for over 9 years now. I am an easy going, down to earth person with a natural flare for teaching. I really enjoy helping people to understand difficult concepts and I've always found science captivating. I am the kind of person who is willing to go above and beyond to help if I am able to. I have experience with young people of all ages, from crèche to holiday clubs, teaching in schools and leading teenagers at summer camps.

Teaching Experience:

I have enjoyed studying science at university level for over 8 years, during which time I was also involved in teaching undergraduate students in labs and tutorials. Since then I've held a post in a pharmaceutical lab developing cancer therapies, as well as teaching chemistry, physics and biology in secondary schools. I studied for a PGDE to become a secondary school chemistry teacher in 2010 (but had to end the course early due to severe morning sickness). As such, I have been able to practice and develop a variety of teaching methods and I'm up to date with the relevant exam board course outcomes and requirements. Over the past 9 years, I have professionally tutored many students, covering Standard Grade, Intermediate 2, National 5, Higher, Revised Higher and Advanced Higher Chemistry, Revised Advanced Higher Chemistry, Higher Human Biology and first year University level Biochemistry. About 70% of my students have achieved at least 2 or 3 grade jumps since they started tutorials with me.

I have several positive references and a CRB enhanced disclosure, which will be available to view on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach to tutoring. I like my students to feel at ease so that they are able to ask me anything. I'm of the mind set that no question is too silly to ask. My tutorials are structured and tailored around the individual student. Depending on the time we have available before an exam/NAB, we will identify key areas that the student experiences difficulty with and work through them addressing Knowledge & Understanding and Problem Solving, both of which are key to achieving the individual's desired grade. I endeavour to cover all topics of the course if we are able to, as I often find that there are areas that a student realises they are not up to scratch on once we start to revise it. I create personalised worksheets for my students and we spend a lot of time going through past papers, as well as developing exam/study technique.

As tutition progresses, I have witnessed a huge increase in the confidence that every one of my students hold in their own ability to problem solve as well as understand their given course work. I have often had comments from students and parents that I make things easy to understand and that the student is actually enjoying their course a lot more since commencing tutoring. I try to make myself available as much as possible to answer queries from tutees by e-mail or text, especially in the run up to class tests or exams.

Here's what one of my previous tutees had to say: "Dale tutored me throughout my higher Chemistry course and I honestly could not have got an A without her! She managed to explain the complex concepts essential to understanding chemistry in a way that I could relate to real life. She was always supportive and motivated me to do well. She was always flexible and able to fit in between my busy schedule. Even now when I have issues with my course work at Medical school I know I could drop her an e-mail with questions and she would be more than happy to help out. Overall Dale is fantastic, if you want a good grade whilst having fun she is your best bet!" - Eilidh.

All of my preparation time (typically 2 hours per session), travel time and travel expenses are included in the hourly rate. I prefer not to travel more than 7 miles from home but will still be happy to consider this.

Personal Description:
Annie has enjoyed teaching Functional English (equivalent to GCSE English) for the past two years. As a published writer/novelist, her passion for writing is apparent in every lesson - whether for children or for adults.

Her degree in Theology and her position as Assistant Examiner for OCR, marking GCSE Religious Studies exam papers every summer, gives her a unique insight into the examination requirements. She has had educational resources published, relating also to GCSE Religious Studies. This all means she can teach 'to spec' every step of the way, in a lively, thorough and often humorous manner.

She is also enthusiastic about preparing KS2 children for their English SATs, and assisting AS/A2 Philosophy students with their course.

Finally, she is fully qualified to teach EFL/ESOL (English to speakers of other languages) and would welcome the opportunity to take on more students in this area.

Personal Description:
I'm a 21 year old male born and raised in London (and so have a very easy to understand accent). I have been studying Computer Science (a very mathematics-based subject) at Newcastle University for almost four years and am currently about to complete my masters. For my A-levels I studied Maths, Further Maths and Computing.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored in the past with GCSE and A-level mathematics, and having almost completed university, I am looking forward to tutoring once again. I have taken part in several mentor schemes where I supported younger students with their academic problems in Mathematics. This includes the "buddy maths" scheme which i took part in during Sixth Form where I was assigned a buddy whom I had to tutor throughout their GCSE Mathematics. I also tutored A-Level maths during Sixth Form for a year. On top of this, I have helped peers throughout my degree, aiding them in completing their work to a high standard.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very organised approach to tutoring, with small goals set per session, as well as a long term goal to work towards. For younger students, I feel that relaxed but structured sessions are important, with small breaks so that focus is kept. I also ensure that the lessons are as fun as possible. I always work towards building a good relationship with my students, and encourage them to ask questions without any hesitation. I adapt my approach depending on my students' learning style as I feel this is the key to successful teaching. Past papers are definitely a step in the right direction, as well as looking at the syllabus/specifications for the subject. I spend a lot of time planning for sessions so that my student gets the very best out of each lesson.

Personal Description:
I am currently training to become a Primary School teacher. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, this combined with my previous work experience means I'm vastly knowledgeable about how children learn (including those with SEN).

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in primary schools as a 1:1 since the first year of university (2012). I then completed my degree in Psychology and enrolled on a School Direct course (Primary PGCE with QTS). I therefore have experience teaching children with SEN and children aged 5-11.
I have good use and experience of Makaton.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the best approach to any kind of tutoring is one that is tailored to the person. This as well as a good relationship is what I feel produces the best results.

I am currently a Nursing student in my 2nd year of study. I finished my A Levels in 2013 and spent two years working in a supermarket and Science Lab.
I play team sports when I am also in charge of charity work and a qualified first aider.

Teaching Experience:

I previously tutored science up to GCSE level while studying for my A Level examinations. Then after finishing school tutored many other core subjects at varying standards.
When coming to university I continued tutoring maths and basic study skills

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be individualised to the student and will take the time to adapt to their needs. I believe the best way to learn is to do and that everyone can learn when they feel confident.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying for a Master's Degree in Creative Writing at the University of Surrey, and applying for my PhD in the same subject, having completed a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing & Philosophy. I am a highly experienced writer, avid reader, and keen researcher. Above and beyond my academic pursuits, I believe strongly in being courteous, professional, and well-dressed at all times, living by the adage that a man is never properly dressed without a tie.

Teaching Experience:

I have a long history of teaching which began when I was studying for my A-levels, teaching judo to primary school children. I also led and taught a Creative Writing society at Alton College before I moved on to my undergraduate degree, a role within which I oversaw the publication of an anthology of student writing. During the latter years of my Bachelor's Degree, I taught creative writing, narration, and game design to younger students on an informal basis, and served as president of the university's PSiFA society. In that role I managed a society of over one hundred members, led meetings, gave speeches, and organised logistics. Now, I am looking to tutor privately while I work full-time on my Master's.

Tutoring Approach:

When it comes to learning, I believe that the most effective method is to teach through example and practice. Learning lists of facts by rote is a poor method, and all too common in education these days. I believe that students learn best when they are actively engaging in the subject, by writing their own work, assessing and identifying their own mistakes, and relying on the guidance and advice provided by a tutor rather than being lectured. Most people retain knowledge and learn best when they do things for themselves. In writing specifically, imagination should be encouraged and developed, and I specialise in three core areas; workshopping through written exercises (having the student write short pieces aimed at developing certain areas, and then assessing them through discussion), combining research with writing (learning research skills and showing how they can be applied to improving the student's writing), and planning & structure (to create effective work methods).
