Personal Description:
** Teacher, Barrister, Oxford Lawyer, Friendly Geek **

I have a PGCE and qualified teacher status from UCL. I graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in law, and subsequently completed the Bar Professional Training Course and qualified as a barrister. I currently practise at the Criminal Bar, but will soon be undertaking teacher training.

I studied for my A-levels at the Wolverhampton Girls' High School, achieving four grade As at A-level. I have been awarded a number of academic prizes and scholarships.

I have engaged in numerous academic pursuits, and have experienced a variety of entrance examinations. I have studied English Literature, Politics and History to A-level, and Law to a degree-level. I can also help with admissions tests, LNAT tests, University and college applications etc.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of tutoring young people from 11 upwards, but am keen to begin working with younger children.

As a trainer for the English Secondary Student's Association, I have worked with both large and small groups of young people in different learning environments. I have also helped run a summer school for young people.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is both friendly and engaging, but with a necessary degree of discipline to ensure targets are achieved. I am happy to be guided by parents/my tutee as to my approach, and have experience of working with vulnerable or hard to reach children and those with special needs.

Personal Description:
I am a very patient and dedicated French native speaker. I tailor my lessons to the students' needs and expectations. Tutoring is not just guiding students through their learning but also giving them confidence and enabling them to experience lessons in a relaxed, friendly and yet serious way.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for over 9 years and have a very diverse experience as I have been working in an Alliance francaise in Mexico, in a language centre, two adult education centres and two tutoring agencies. My first teaching experience was a French Language Assistant in Preston, Lancashire. I have had students ranging from 7 years old to 70+, from absolute beginners to advanced levels. I've given private and group classes and intensive courses (up to 7h a day) in schools and companies. I have over 4500 teaching hours, including more than 3200 hours of private tuition (basically in French Literature, French and English as Foreign Languages; 2500 of which in the UK).

Coming from France where I taught French Literature to a student preparing a diploma in Accounting, I have now been in the UK for four and a half years. I am occasionally in charge of groups of beginner students in a language school and give private tuition (self-employed as well as with two tutoring agencies). At the moment, I give French private tuition for the preparation of GCSE and IGCSE, DALF C1, CNED CE1 and CM2 (French school curriculum, distance learning) and university essay writing. I also tutor other students looking to learn or improve their French communication skills for personal reasons.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very flexible and know how to adapt my teaching to the specificities and demands of the students.
Understand and be understood! That's the main thing when you learn a language, be able to communicate.

Whether you are a student taking GCSE or A levels in French and need confidence for your exam or you are a professional willing to have a proper conversation with your French colleagues or clients, or just want to enjoy your next holidays in a French-speaking country, whether on a daily basis or intensive classes, we will first talk about what YOU are looking for and how I will help you to achieve your language goals.

Personal Description:
I am a professional actor with a first-class English degree (University of York). Over my years of private tutoring experience I have learnt that the two most important attributes for a tutor are a) a passion for your subject, and b) an ability to get on and connect with your tutees.
I have always loved English literature and language (my love for the latter having recently been stoked by taking a CELTA qualification) and combine a real passion for these subjects with a performer's ability to relay that passion.

Teaching Experience:

Several years of private tutoring experience.

8 hours of CELTA teaching practice.

I taught IB English (standard and higher levels) for five months at the United World College of Southern Africa (Swaziland).

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring allows me to exercise my twin passions: arts subjects and acting. I believe there is an aspect of performance in teaching; I can communicate my enthusiasm, and make learning both interesting and exciting.

Personal Description:
My name is Jessica and I am a 27 year old tutor from Brixton, South London. I have grown up with a great education from both schooling and tutors, and aim to keep up this high standard in my teaching. My secondary school, Heathfield Private Girls in Pinner, was a great starter for me and showed me a wide variety of effective teaching methods in all areas of education. When specialising at Woodhouse College in English, Drama, Biology and French I had some of the most inspiring and creative teachers who pushed me to a level I did not know I could achieve. As a result I had a firm foundation for my English and Drama Bachelor of the Arts at the University of Birmingham which made the course all the more enjoyable. I will be studying my Masters in October at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Teaching Experience:

My most recent pupil was retaking his A-Level drama exam during his gap year. By working together for 6 week, we managed to bring his grade up from a U to a B, allowing him the chance of a university placement. Other pupils have ranged in age and ability from first years of GCSE to children for homework help. My mother is and has always been a French teacher, so from a young age I was helping to look after and share responsibility for her classes. This included an after-school French club for children from the age of 4 to 11 years called Jeux D'Enfants and also helping organise and plan some private lessons. At College and University I tutored the younger siblings of my close friends for their 11+ and GCSE and also held weekly Shakespeare study groups for my course. I have recently decided to become a teaching assistant for a secondary school in North London and am excited to tutor once more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TESTIMONIALS
I was more than fortunate to come across Jessica's profile back in April 2012.

From the moment I sent her my initial email, there was both an element of professionalism and caring. The amount of effort and detail she put into my 12 lesson's between April and late May was second to none.
In terms of what Jess brought to my lesson's (We looked at two play's for my written exam. Lysistrata and A Comedy of Errors) she had a lot of material on the latter having studied it at school. From character profiles to stage description's she had an extensive amount of notes, chart and diagrams as well as an understanding of the play and exam. As for lysistratta, this was a play she had never read, by my first lessons she had not only read it but had started to plan out potential lesson planners, as the weeks went by the material and effort she put into each lesson continue. During lesson's I found that she had a very cool and relaxed attitude. She's still young and has an understanding of not only the subject but also how a-levels can effect students and how to best deal with this pressure.

In the end however it's all about the result I suppose. In my last exam (Unit 4 theatre studies) I got under 20% the year before. My finale grade fell from B to D. After my lesson's with Jessica I got 78% and my grade jump back up to B. Added to my A and B in my two other subject I was accepted to the university of Southampton, something I couldn't have imagine a year prior.

Jessica had a huge part to play in this and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jessica has been tutoring my 14 year old son in English for the last academic term. She is an enthusiastic teacher who has really helped engage him in the subject. Her knowledge of drama is a real bonus.

My son's grades have improved noticeably this term and he is much more confident in his lessons at school. I would thoroughly recommend her.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that no one pupil is the same, so it is impossible to define a teaching method as it must be adapted to the needs of the student. From experience of being tutored myself, I know how frustrating it can be to be taught in a way that doesn't suit your thinking, so with each pupil I ask them how they learn and absorb information best. As a result I spend the first lesson going over what the pupil does not understand, and why, thus gaining an comprehension of how to explain it better. I also like to push the student to think beyond their boundaries, or the boundaries necessary to simply get the grade, as this is how exceptional thinking and a sense of achievement come about.

Personal Description:
I'm a qualified teacher with experience in tutoring students from GCSE to undergraduate level. I received a Physics degree from Cardiff University, before getting married and moving to Sheffield to do my teacher training and a PhD.

Throughout this time I have been involved in teaching and tutoring, whether more formally in schools and at Sheffield University, or more informal private tuition to GCSE students and an engineering undergraduate.

My teaching seeks to develop understanding, whilst being enjoyable, and generally includes practical activities as well as written and oral work. In this respect I have spent many sessions in primary schools, secondary schools and public spaces (including the Winter Gardens, Sheffield) doing public Science teaching, demonstrations and promotions. This has helped me learn how to help everyone understand various aspects of Maths and Science, regardless of background or age.

Outside of teaching and tutoring I enjoy cycling and getting out into the Peak district.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst completing my teacher training I taught students from 12-18 and across the ability spectrum in all three Sciences.

Since then I have been involved in delivering tutorials and lectures at Sheffield University to undergraduate students in Physics and Maths. During this time I have privately tutored both undergraduate and GCSE students.

Tutoring Approach:

I vary my approach to tutoring depending on the needs, ability and age of the student, but in all cases I'm patient, friendly and encouraging.

When there is sufficient time, students are encouraged to complete some diagnostic work to establish both their ability and confidence across the curriculum. This allows the tutorials to be planned appropriately for each specific student.

Just before the exam, exam technique help and troubleshooting can make a significant difference to the students performance and confidence, even with just one or two sessions.

Personal Description:
Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

Hi there and thanks for viewing my profile. My name is Paul and I have been studying, researching and teaching politics since 1988 when I first started my undergraduate degree at Leeds. I gained my first degree with first class honours at Leeds, completed a PhD in Politics at Leeds in 1998 and subsequently lectured, tutored and researched in Politics / Political Economy / International Relations and European Studies at the University of Portsmouth from 1998-2015.

I took a career break from September 2015 to develop some personal projects but continue to offer tuition in politics.

My primary specialism is in the crossover between Politics and Economics (Political Economy) in a theoretical, international, global, European and policymaking context. Many students taking Politics or IR degrees struggle with the economic components of their degree, perceiving it to be a different and mathematical subject...Economic ideas and concepts are in fact central to any deep understanding of politics and IR but, happily, they are very much easier to understand than many students assume. One of my biggest strengths as a tutor is to be able to make economic ideas accessible, interesting, engaging and relevant to the non-specialist and to the student of Politics / IR. By connecting the economics very clearly to mainstream areas of politics such as political thought and public policy and by focusing on the non-mathematical aspects of economic thought, I have been able to help students overcome their initial fears about political economy and come to see it as both the fundamental - and fun - part of all social and political science .

In addition to my specialisms in PE/IPE, I have broad and deep subject knowledge having taught across the full range of Politics, Government, European Studies and International Relations subjects over the years so it is very unlikely that you would be studying something in this broad area of political and social sciences that I would not be able to cover.

And: I am very flexible and approachable: just ask if you have any queries at all!

Teaching Experience:

Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

I was Principal Lecturer in Politics/IR at Portsmouth University, Associate Head of the School of Social Historical and Literary Studies (2003-11) before moving up to a Faculty job. Overall I taught in HE at Portsmouth from 1998 until September 2015. I decided to take a voluntary career break in 2015 to develop a variety of my own pet projects but I continue to offer tuition on a private basis across the social sciences to undergraduate, postgraduate and A-level students.

I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and previously the ILT since 2001, and am currently applying for Senior Fellowship status.

In addition, I am an experienced personal and study skills tutor, a role I always took seriously at University. I see the role of a tutor as partly that of a 'coach', facilitating as much as possible your own development as a student. I honed this approach over time as a lecturer and it was especially useful in dissertation supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at Portsmouth I was nominated for and won several teaching awards including 'Most Innovative Lecturer' and 'Best Feedback'. A major strength of my teaching is that I give very positive, encouraging and constructive developmental feedback on your ideas, plans and writing combined with broad and deep subject knowledge.

As a lecturer I am highly engaging, dynamic and open and I have a gift to explaining complicated concepts in very clear and accessible ways using stories, metaphors and analogies. Indeed I am currently writing a book in which this approach is used to teach Economic concepts to non-specialists without any numbers at all - purely through stories, analogies and metaphors.

In addition to offering private tutoring I am also an accredited trainer and life coach, as well as a proof reader. So the skills sets I bring to private tuition are more diverse than just lecturing / teaching although of course I also do have that extensive classroom and tutoring experience you require (18 years!).

My main specialisms are: international and global political economy, economics for non-specialists and social scientists, public policy, British politics, comparative politics, political ideas and theory, political ideologies, international relations.

Although I am new to teaching English as a Foreign Language I have teaching experience gained from teaching World War 1 history to primary school children and Law as a private tutor to university undergraduates. I have also provided English language support to a number of European companies. For the past nine years I worked in a university as a note taker for disabled students, presenting lecture materials in ways tailored to their individual needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that English language learning should be practical and interactive. I understand that everyone has their own individual learning style and learning needs. Your classes with me will focus on this to ensure your learning needs are met. I always conduct both a needs analysis and assessment of your language skills to understand what you need from your English classes. I use a variety of materials and exercises in my classes to provide real life examples of English and also keep classes interesting.

Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching maths and physics and I have had previous experience of teaching maths for a tutoring organisation. I am an 18 year old student in my final year of school (RGS Newcastle), currently studying towards 4 A levels in Physics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Economics. This combination of mathematical subjects has enabled me to develop a solid foundation of mathematics, as well as physics, which I am able to trickle down to the students I teach. However primarily I really enjoy tutoring as it provides me with an opportunity to interact and support young persons of varying ages, from primary all the way up to A level. It is fascinating to watch and support them as they develop and to push them to reach their true potential whilst refining my own skills.

Aside from teaching Mathematics and Physics, I would also be able to provide some advice about applying to universities for Economics/Maths-related courses as studying at the London School of Economics is my chosen career path for the future, and I went through the application process last year so it is very familiar. I would also be open to helping with personal statement writing and structure as part of the application process.

Please text me to get in touch.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a class assistant for Kumon Educational UK tutoring organisation for the past 2 years which has provided me with experience in teaching children of all ages, ranging from 6 to 17 years of age. Through this experience, I have taught children first-hand and this has strongly facilitated my role as a tutor.

I have completed a Sports Leadership qualification, in which I taught children basic sports skills and learnt how to communicate and cooperate with children of different ages.

I have had experience as a Lance Corporal for the NRGS Combined Cadet Force, in which I taught lessons to juniors in military craft as well as leading juniors in military exercises.

I am a 1st degree Blackbelt Instructor for the Newcastle Blackbelt Academy and through this role I have developed a high degree of focus and discipline. I have had experience in teaching junior students as well as leading classes of people of all belt degrees, adults and children.

Tutoring Approach:

Particularly in the case of tutoring children, I have had a lot of previous experience. I am able to cater to the needs of all kinds of children and have developed a knowledge of where children are likely to make errors and how to teach both simple and complex ideas in a palpable manner so that they are able to understand and progress with their learning. I look to target specific areas in which there are strengths and weaknesses and try to iron out any difficulties, one by one, before progressing onto the next idea.

Conceptually, I would like to create a strong foundation and try to perfect their knowledge of the basics before applying it to further concepts and doing it in this way allows future, more difficult problems to fall apart and be solved more easily.

I would like student to bring their own materials, books, textbooks etc relevant to their course or stage of learning and once the individual needs of the student, relative strengths and weaknesses, exam boards have been discussed, we can develop a plan. I am also able to offer additional material such as worksheets or practice questions if required.

Available on Monday, Wednesday and Sunday (Evenings).

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic scientist with a PhD in mathematical physics, where I published several papers in established credited scientific journals followed by extensive experience as a researcher. I have a passion for disseminating what I have learnt throughout these years. I am innovative and can approach the same problem through different methods which allow me to help students understand even the most difficult concepts.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience in tutoring mathematics and physics at GCSE and A-level standards. My approach has been based on building confidence and encouraging attempts.

Throughout my PhD I also tutored and taught to undergraduates. This involved lecturing, tutoring, demonstrating and grading subjects of maths and science related, supervising physics labs, and developing and delivering lectures to science and engineering undergraduate students.

Tutoring Approach:

Patience for all levels of ability, push all to reach their full potential.
