Personal Description:
I'm a University of Glasgow Biochemistry and MSc International Project Management graduate. I'm a French national and have been living in the UK for 21 years. I'm a lovely person, very dynamic and love the one to one of tutoring. It makes me really happy to help someone achieve something they have worked so hard for.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately now for 13 years and have seen my students come to grow in confidence, in understanding and in knowledge of their chosen topics. I saw a girl who I tutored for 7 months go from getting an 'Unclassified grade' in her Biology AS Level to a B in her A2. I have never seen a student of mine's grades stay the same post-tutoring and I am very proud of that.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring different ways depending on who the student is. I ask them questions about themselves, hobbies, favourite subjects etc; and then using that to better understand how they learn, I talk to them about their private learning and revision and the method of approach to that and to exams. And then I teach them using the method appropriate to their style of learning. I also set plenty of work and get them to do past papers which I send to them in the first week. I then take these away and mark them in my own time and return with a deeper view of where they are going wrong after they have been taught. I do 2hr concentrated sessions either weekly or fornightly and have seen great results not only in grades but also in enthusiasm for learning. I am also on hand to discuss career and university options too, which helps ease the daunting choices the students have to make.

Personal Description:
I have always been aware of the importance of cultivating languages and thanks to my Bachelor's Degree in Translation and Interpreting and my subsequent work,I have excellent skills all round in Spanish, my mother tongue. Furthermore, I have gained a broad experience of making use of my linguistic skills in French.

Teaching Experience:

My stays abroad include The University of Sheffield as a Spanish Assistant, which I feel has contributed to the development of my educational abilities. I particularly worked in Spanish language classes, solving grammatical, phonetic or syntactic problems for final year students in the School of Modern Languages and Linguistics. Furthermore, my Spanish teaching qualification (CAP for Secondary Education) equips me with pedagogical and didactic skills, which I feel are transferable to the English educational context.
This summer I have successfully completed a 12 week intensive course 6 unit French Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course and I have achieved Europena Lavel B1.3, which is A Level Standard I taught French at University Level.

Tutoring Approach:

Supportive, well-organized, trying to make it interesting with a wide range of materials.

Personal Description:
I am a TEFL teacher with a university degree (Music) and am from London. In my day job I work in a music company. I also teach English to foreign students in London, having worked for 2 years in British Council accredited language schools both in London and Portugal. I am a very friendly person and really enjoy teaching any age group.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught TEFL in language schools for two years, and have given private tuition in English and in Music for 9 years for all levels of learners. I have taught English at all levels from Beginner to Advanced, plus Business English and conversation classes. I have taught children as young as 6, all the way up to adults, and vary my teaching method according to the age group I am working with.

I have a Music degree and play and teach the Recorder, as well as giving lessons in music Theory. I used to work for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in the syllabus department, so have great insider knowledge about music exams. Additionally, I also used to mark Theory papers, so know what examiners are looking for.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to be as learner-centred as possible in my teaching. First I will conduct a needs analysis to assess a potential student's level and to identify the areas in which they would like to improve and their preferred learning methods. I encourage my students to actively participate in my lessons - it will not just be me talking. I aim to make lessons fun and engaging, as I believe that students learn more when they are interested in the material given.

Personal Description:
My name is Tim and I'm based in the Caerphilly area. I am happy to work anywhere in Caerphilly, Cardiff, Newport or the Valleys. I am a primary school teacher and have 24 years experience working with children within the age range 6-11.
I have worked in London and in South Wales and have taught in a range of primary schools, teaching children from many different types of background. I have a current CRB check and can provide excellent references.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a primary school teacher since 1986 and have worked across the age range from 6 to 11. I have a good deal of experience teaching children in Year 6 and preparing them for the step up to secondary school. I am able to give tuition in any primary subject but have a specialism in maths as I have been maths co-ordinator in more than one school and have an in depth knowledge of how children learn in this subject and how they can be helped to enjoy their work here and achieve good results. I also have experience of tutoring children in individual sessions and have always been able to help them to improve their standards and become more confident across the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly tutor who has always been able to establish a good rapport with children of primary age. I am extremely patient and calm in my approach as a teacher and believe in using humour to help children relax and enjoy learning. I take into account the preferred learning style of the child and tailor all lessons to their needs. I will try to include an element of challenge in all sessions to help children build up their confidence through success on progressively more difficult tasks. I have a huge range of resources I can use to help make sessions interesting and am prepared to be flexible in terms of rates, location of sessions and times.

Personal Description:
I am a retired Maths Teacher who has recently moved into the Neston area.
I have a Certificate in Education (Advanced Maths) and a First Class Honours Degree from The Open University.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Secondary Maths for the past 30 years in the Southport and Liverpool areas.
My last post was teaching years 7-13 at a Comprehensive in Liverpool. I taught all abilities in years 7-9 then Foundation/Higher GCSE and A Level Maths.
I have been a private tutor for 6 years.
I am also a Senior Examiner for Maths GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe children when they say they do not understand (the majority want to learn, certainly on a one to one basis) and I will therefore try different approaches until we reach the understanding of the topic not just rote learning.
I have access to numerous exam papers from different boards and being an Examiner know what is being looked for and the different ways to gain marks.

Personal Description:
I am a Dedicated, resourceful and innovative Teacher with more than 3 yrs of teaching experience at University level & more than 3 years of tutoring in the UK.Teaching is my passion which you'll find out on meeting & its something which I consider a way of giving back to the society.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a Lecturer in Engineering Institute teaching relevant subjects for 3 years .

I have been tutoring in the UK for more than 3 years now & during this time have carved a niche among my students for being approachable & having a sound understanding of the subjects & helping them in all possible ways.

I am a very patient & child friendly person.

As a Tutor , I have helped students from Primary to GCSE level with Maths ,Science & English preparing for a competitive exam & excel in the subject. I try & make learning fun while the students learn for life.Students & parents who are dedicated to learning motivate me to do better.
I have made permanent & good relations with my clients with my innovative techniques & dedication.

I also undertake lessons during school time (10am-14:00pm) for homeschooled children & other students who might need help during this time.

I also undertake Hindi language lessons.Also,offering group lessons.
All lessons are conducted from my home.Can travel in Milton Keynes For small extra charge(subject to availability).

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring Approach
I feel that having a good foundation to any subject is the way to go thus this would usually where I begin. If a student has a good understanding of the basics in any subject, more complicated details will seem much easier; like building blocks. After this, a focus on the weaker areas would then be applied to reinforce the student's understanding.

To begin, I start with revision techniques, worksheets and make new, very detailed, class/revision notes with my students. After developing a solid understanding, I begin with exam questions . Every lesson I give them homework. Essentially, what I offer are school lessons that are more detailed and focused than what they receive in school. Through these methods, I am able to thoroughly assess a student's abilities, increase them and hopefully up their grades.

My innovative pedagogies and teaching style and teacher friendly approach makes the concepts easy and passion and love for teaching has made me popular among my students

View Clare's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a full time professional tutor, ex-University Lecturer from the University of Nottingham and the immediate past Vice-President of the Tutors' Association.

I hold a PhD from Imperial College London and have a strong academic track record having previously led cutting-edge industrial and academic research in science and statistics. My scientific research has been published extensively in international peer-reviewed journals and my work has been cited almost 2000 times within the scientific literature. Whilst I am now a full time tutor, I also remain research active. I serve on the Editorial Boards of four international journals and still co-author research publications. This means my knowledge is not purely book-based, but founded on an extensive background as a successful female scientist.

I enjoy working with students of varying ages and abilities and take pride in encouraging students to reach their full potential. I am patient and understanding in my approach, which I will adapt to meet the strengths and needs of individual learners. I have an up-to- date knowledge of the national curriculum, enabling me to teach biology, chemistry, physics and maths at GCSE level and above.

I have years of experience as a tenured University Lecturer where I taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have supervised numerous PhD and MRes students to successful completion of their thesis. Having interviewed numerous UCAS candidates for degree places, I can also offer advice to hone your personal statement.

Teaching Experience:

I am a full-time professional tutor and have seven years experience in private tuition.

I am the immediate past Vice-President of The Tutor's Association (2015-2016), the professional body representing the tuition industry. As a member of the Tutors Association, I have also signed up to their code of ethics, code of conduct and my qualifications, references, experience and DBS have been externally checked and verified.

I was a Lecturer at the University of Nottingham for nearly a decade where I also sat on the University examination board for the award of the undergraduate pharmacy degree (MPharm). I am now a full-time personal tutor with five years experience and over 100 GB of teaching resources which I use to support my teaching.

I also have also taught in school at secondary level. I am familiar with all the major examination boards (AQA, OCR, EdExcel, IB). I have worked with children who are gifted and talented and with special educational needs such as Asperger Syndrome, autism, ADHD, partial hearing and dyslexia. Having lived and worked abroad for a number of years, I also have experience of working with students for whom English is an additional language.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in taking a very individual approach to tutoring, adapting approaches and resources to fit the needs of the individual. Prior to commencing tuition, we will agree tuition goals and I will work with these to develop a personalized scheme of learning. During tuition I will monitor student progress and keep records of this so that learning and attainment can be tracked and approaches can be continually adapted to meet the developing needs of the learner. However, most importantly of all, I believe learning should be fun. I am friendly and approachable and I work hard to ensure that students enjoy having tuition, which ultimately will maximise the progress they make.

A 5% discount is offered to all students paying monthly in advance.

Personal Description:
I am a calm and collected person and this is reflected in my approach towards tutoring. I aim to build rapport and tailor my service to the specific needs of the tutee. I primarily focus on breaking down the curriculum and assessing through mock scenarios and written assessments built upon topics studied as well as experiences the tutee has had.

As the needs of each student are different, i structure my tutoring in a way which provides realistic expectations of both exam and coursework environments and where possible, i supplement this with the use of past examination material to truly replicate the educational environment the tutee is likely to be in.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience has largely been developed by assisting students in the years below me as well as my younger siblings and my cousins with their education. I have developed this further in a professional setting where i have trained colleagues on new and unfamiliar processes. My strengths lie in breaking down complex information and making it readily accessible to tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by engaging the tutee/parent/both in conversation to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, once this has been established, i draw up a comprehensive plan of action to address those needs and where possible, further enhance their existing skillsets. I am to review material with the tutee on a regular basis and ensure they have absorbed the information and more importantly, that they are able to apply it.

Where the tutee requires support via other means such as audio/visual representations of the material - i will endeavour to match this in a suitable manner.

Personal Description:
Welcome! My name is Katya and I'm from the U.K. I am a qualified and experienced English teacher. I am available to help you improve your spoken and written English, to support you in exam preparation and to prepare sessions according to your needs.

I am kind, supportive, reliable, and adaptable to each student.

I lived in South America for 5 years and I speak fluent Spanish. I have also lived in Uganda for one year and studied a local Bantu language in Kampala.

Teaching Experience:

I studied for my CELTA qualification in Oxford in 2015 and did lots of classroom teaching as an important part of the course.

I have been giving one-to-one English and Spanish language lessons over the last year.

Last year I taught IELTS and elementary and beginner levels at a private language college in Kampala, Uganda.

I gave one-to-one literacy classes in Spanish in Bolivia.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a student-led approach, with the learner being as actively involved in the lesson as possible.

I prepare lessons with clear goals in mind for grammar, vocabulary and skills practice. These goals are then achieved through various activities, role-play, games and the use of different medium to make the learning real-to-life and natural.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching undergraduates in Psychology & statistics at Sunderland University but then became a full time teacher of Psychology in 1994 after completing my PGCE. By 1997 I was Head of Psychology at a large Sixth Form College & I became a Senior Tutor in 2000. In 2005 I was promoted to lead Pastoral Care in one of the largest sixth form colleges in the country. In 2001 I took up the role of Psychology Examiner for the OCR board and served for 6 years before leaving formal teaching in 2007. Since then I have set up a training company delivering courses to teachers in one-to-one guidance. In 2014, I re-visited the role of Psychology Examiner for OCR & I am currently expanding my commitment to assessment and have recently completed an additional qualification for OCR.

Tutoring Approach:

Every learner is different & it follows that the reasons for struggling with a subject are different. Therefore it is crucial for a tutor to understand the students' approach to study in order to design appropriate sessions to enable progress in that subject. For me, knowing the student is just as important as knowing the subject.
Exam Focus. To achieve the higher grades at Psychology, you have to be confident with independent critical analysis. By focusing our sessions on the higher skills involved in psychology - research methods, ethics, issues, etc - you will develop your confidence in this area.
