Personal Description:
My name is Claudia. I was born in Argentina and have spent half of my life in Spain. I've been living in the UK for 8 years.
I'm passionate about languages and I have a BA in Business Administration and an IH Certificate as Spanish Teacher for Adults accredited by University of Barcelona.
Although my accent is from Spain, I am very aware of the differences between Latin American and Iberian Spanish
I am also a qualified Translator English into Spanish (DipTrans IOL) and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Spanish in London for two years now in private tuitions to all levels.
I have also taught English at Mondragon University in Spain for a year.
I also teach children from pre-school to 11 yrs old in small groups in Hornsey Vale Community Association and St John's Highbury Vale Primary School
I am experienced in preparing students for GCSE Foundation, Higher, AS and A levels.
I also teach in very small groups up to 4 people at a more convenient rate.
Special customized courses for companies in site.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is based on a communicative approach, aiming to develop the fours skills: Listening, Writing, Speaking and Reading.
I like to know my students interests to make the class as engaging as possible, as I believe that if the student enjoy the class it is more likely s/he will learn more, work harder and won't give up learning Spanish.
I also tailor the classes to meet student's needs tackling their weaknesses.
To reinforce learning I usually start with a short recap of the last class and based on student availability I give homework and correct it.

  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have a life-long love of English in general and of Shakespeare in particular, and have always enjoyed communicating that enthusiasm to other people, helping them to develop understanding, confidence, appreciation and a love of language. I have an MA degree in English from Cambridge University and am an IGCSE examiner for the Cambridge International Examinations Board.

My early background in retail management, several years at director level in international advertising, then thirty years as a teacher, with theatre running as a constant thread throughout my life, all combine to make me a particularly effective communicator.

As well as offering private tuition, I also run school drama workshops, direct plays, and work as a freelance writer/editor and voice-over. I have been involved in over fifty theatrical productions - acting or directing - as well as giving regular readings and public presentations.

Having lived and worked professionally for several years in France, I am fluent in French and can offer coaching in French literature and language.

"Simon is the complete professional, directing and managing large-scale productions, nurturing emerging talent, and running a very successful education programme, as well as being an inspirational teacher himself." (Arnold D. - former colleague)

PLEASE NOTE: I am now largely unavailable until mid-July 2017 but do get in touch in case we can discuss possibilities.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Head of English and Drama at independent schools for over twenty-five years, and am regarded as a charismatic and inspirational teacher. I have many years' experience of Drama in general and Shakespeare in particular on and off stage (studying, teaching, acting and directing).

"Every pupil has selective memories of their teachers. Every past pupil I ever meet selects Simon as their most memorable teacher. They remember his effervescence in the classroom, his delight in their achievements and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Shakespeare." (Tim R. - colleague since 1987)

"Simon was simply a brilliant Head of Department, being that rare combination of high academic and able, articulate communicator. His subject knowledge is unmatched in all my teaching experience, especially of Shakespeare's works, and his inspired teaching produced enthusiastic, successful pupils during his twenty years." (Kay C. - colleague since 1998)

Tutoring Approach:

Need to gain more confidence with spoken or written language? Find Shakespeare hard to cope with, or poetry difficult to understand? Wish to develop your creative writing ability? Need to practise interview technique and improve presentation skills?

I can help. I give coaching in drama, literary analysis and practical criticism, particularly of poetry, and I specialise in teaching Shakespeare. In addition, my earlier background in advertising and marketing is particularly useful in helping students develop their interview technique and presentation skills.

If distance is a problem, I am happy to offer on-line tuition, such as via Skype.

(For adults wishing to learn more about Shakespeare or to understand and appreciate poetic technique, I am happy to undertake small groups - please enquire about special rates.)

"Simon is an inspirational teacher of English Language, Literature and of Drama. His ability to engage and motivate pupils is of the highest order as is his pursuit of excellence in all that he does, both within the classroom situation and in workshops. All of this is well reflected in the results he has achieved, in particular with both academic English and Drama scholarship candidates over his years in post." (Dr Gerry H.)

Personal Description:
I am currently studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I love reading, writing and reading some more. I also enjoy sketching while listening to music. I am a frank person, have an straightforward approach to everything in life and like people to behave the same way with me (which always does not happen). I love to have a laugh, but don't worry, I can be serious when needed( for example, when teaching your children English and History).

Teaching Experience:

While I have never tutored for money, I have an extensive tutoring experience. I volunteered to teach illiterate students English as a part of a volunteering program from my high school in India and have been a part of that program for the past two years. I also used to tutor my two siblings in History, Geography and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that children learn best in a stress free environment. If they feel it is fun and challenging, they will be more willing to learn than if they feel it to be an obligation. English is an easy subject and children enjoy learning it, once they realize the joys that English has to offer. History can be challenging due to the vast amounts one has to learn by heart but steady habit of writing down answers to questions helps more than reading the material ten times. Other than that, History is a vastly interesting subject which helps us understand the workings of the present society and of course, knowledge about our ancestors. Geography is relatively straightforward subject. A lot of practice and a dedicated perusal of it should be enough to get good scores. While it can be relatively dry, it can be made interesting with pictures and videos.I focus on exam technique, past papers as well as text work (English Lit.)

Subjects
  • Geography
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from the University of Warwick with a B.A. in politics. I have an excellent academic record; I received firsts in three of the eight modules that made up my degree, my second year work was praised for its excellence by the examinations board and my contributions to seminars were praised by lecturers. Prior to this I completed A-levels in economics, history and politics (all at grade A) at Pate's Grammar School. I have a comprehensive knowledge of and passion for the subject area; I have had work experience with the BBC's Sunday Politics and am the author the "Young Citizens Agenda for the UK".

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience assisting younger family members with GCSE and A-level work. I was the person to come to at school for A-level politics advice.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work to understand the specific needs of the individual tutee. This will involve closely examining the syllabus of the specific course which they are undertaking set against what they need to do to produce work that will get into the better grade boundaries. This will require working with the tutee to understand their own learning style so they are able to do this. But most importantly I hope to generate an genuine enthusiasm for politics and current affairs.

I am a qualified child care worker who has cared for children for over twenty years. I am married with two grownup children and a grandson aged 11 years.

Teaching Experience:

While working in child care I was a storyteller providing activities such as books and puppets for role play. This helped develop children speech and social skills of all ages as the loved taking part. I also provided arts and craft to link with this which helped further develop the child's literacy.

Personal Description:
In October 2014 I graduated from Imperial College London, where I spent 4 years studying for my Masters Degree in MSci Mathematics. I have a big passion for learning and this is a trait I want to be able to pass on to other children. Currently, I am working as an Analytic Consultant in Birmingham, which helps to demonstrate the strong analytical and communication skills that I possess.

Teaching Experience:

During Secondary School I ran a Maths Club once a week where I set problems and puzzles for all students. Furthermore, I was a Chess Coach teaching chess to primary school children and in Imperial College I held sessions with 1st Year students aiding their transition between school and university.

Thus, I have had experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities, which will help me to adapt my approach based on the student.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I aim to pass on my passion for Mathematics onto my students, developing their understanding and appreciation for the subject. In my opinion this is the best way to learn as ideas become easier to remember and concepts become quicker to grasp, which will transpose into better grades and examination performances.

Overall, I bring an enthusiastic and approachable atmosphere to my sessions, where students are not afraid to ask questions. This will enhance their learning experience and again improve exam results.

  • GCSE or Standards (40 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (50 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Sophie. I am a 2nd year student of Biochemistry at Edinburgh University, having just finished my gap year working at IBM. I love to spend my spare time either on the hockey pitch, in the kitchen or doing some art.

Teaching Experience:

Student science tutor for 2 years whilst at school
Summer Camp Leader for 3 years running, experience with international children.
Leader at Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows
Work experience at an Adult Learning Centre

Tutoring Approach:

It has been my experience, both as a tutor and as a student, that the best way to engage with learning is to understand your working style. I personally have found certain aspects of school quite challenging but by finding the methods that most suited my needs, I was able to maximize my learning potential.

My tutoring style emphasizes collaboration and positive reinforcement in order to produce a friendly learning environment.

From my charity work abroad in Ghana to my role as Deputy Head Girl at my secondary school, I have gained the interpersonal skills necessary to develop productive and compassionate relationships with pupils. Students will find themselves excited for their lessons and eager to achieve new standards of excellence.

Personal Description:
My name's Danielle and I am 24 years old. I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Bsc Honors in Nutrition, Exercise & Health in July 2012. Since graduating I spent a year working at a Blackpool Primary School, assisting with teaching and after school club activities. I have lots of experience working with children age 4-11 years old. I spent 12 months between noc 2013-dec 2014 in Australia working for a private medical practice which was the second largest in Australia. I worked within the finance department and also shadowing the nutritionists as they treated their own clients. During my time there I gained valuable experience working within a clinical healthcare setting, also working with a variety of clients from different cultures and ethnicities. I have confidence in speaking to groups of people in presentation format, a skill i enhanced during my time in Australia. This i take into my approach to tutoring. During my time in Australia i tutored my younger family members throughout there final years at high school. I tutored Maths, Biology and English but have a vast knowledge of P.E and sports science in particular nutritional science.

Teaching Experience:

I worked for a year at a Blackpool Primary school where i enhanced dramatically my knowledge and skills working with young children. I gained one on one experience working with children aged 4-11 years old. I have the confidence and patience required in order to work on this basis with children of all educational levels. I have experience mentoring and tutoring young adults through their high school years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient and understanding young individual. I have a relaxed and gentle approach to teaching and mentoring as i feel you don't get very far adopting a strict approach, especially where young adults are concerned. In order to work as a team there has to be a level of respect no matter what the age difference, therefore i deem a soft friendly approach far more successful. I like to build a friendship with those i tutor/mentor as past experience has proven this the most effective method (regardless of age).

Personal Description:
I would describe myself as easy-going, friendly and caring. I love cooking and food in general, so am working for a nutrition company and charity in London at the moment. I enjoy being active and will try my hand at any sport. I love travelling and meeting new people.

Teaching Experience:

In the past two years I have been tutoring GCSE (year 1) and AS-level AQA Biology. I am now also tutoring GCSE (year 2). I adapt my sessions to the students' areas of concern. I work closely with the specification as this outlines the topics the students are expected to learn and is the guideline for exam questions. I have also worked with primary-school children to increase their reading age in schools around Leeds, which has been very rewarding as you see the children progress.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate and enthusiastic about my subjects and love seeing others get passionate about it too. I have experienced poor teaching and know how frustrating it can be, I do my best to approach new concepts from different angles. I feel patience is important on both sides.

Personal Description:
A PhD student currently writing up my thesis in Chemistry - specifically in the synthesis of new compounds to be used in organic electronics. I have a BSc Hons in Chemistry and a MSc in Drug Design and Discovery.

I am based in Glasgow, and I am an easy-to-speak-to, laid back person. I am passionate about learning, in particular in learning science. I believe that everyone should have access to learn at least a basic level of science as it drives the world around us today.

I have a wide range of experience in traditional chemistry through to current modern techniques and methods. I am well versed in both theoretical and practical chemistry. My main field is synthetic organic chemistry with a scope towards materials (solar cells in particular). Through my studies I have also covered a range of physics, maths, and computing, as well as research methods and planning.

I am highly motivated, passionate, and organised. I look forward to helping you achieve your own goals whether they are to improve a grade, pass a test, or just learn for pleasure or personal interest.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at undergraduate level, and I have demonstrated and taught in undergraduate chemistry labs, including handling assignment marking and feedback.

During my PhD I demonstrated in the undergraduate teaching laboratories, where I showed students how to correctly perform their experiments. I would cover the theory of the experiment, explain why it was important, highlight any important aspects and explain the best approach to completing the work. I would then receive and mark lab reports, giving feedback and providing any required additional help or details that each student required. Additionally, during my MSc I tutored an undergraduate student one-to-one because they were unhappy with their grade (a grade C). After some weeks of tuition the student attained a B+, missing out on an A by a few percent.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to ensure the student understands what the underlying theory, reasoning, and application of the topic is. I don't think rote memorisation is a particularly strong approach, especially without ensuring the basic foundations have been understood. I am happy to work towards achieving an improved grade, passing an exam, or simply learning for personal interest.

Personal Description:
I hold a BSc (Hons) Mathematics, 1st class from the University of Manchester as well as an MA Music, Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music.

I grew up in Watford, studying at Watford Grammar School for Boys. I achieved 4 A Levels grade A including Maths and Further Maths, 1 AS Level grade A, and 11 GCSEs, 9 grade A* and 2 grade A.

I am a mathematics tutor and freelance classical musician (viola), with my work featuring performance with top UK orchestras, chamber music and outreach work as well as a teaching portfolio working with children and adults.

In my spare time, I enjoy astronomy, cycling and playing the euphonium with the Army Reserve Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently relocated to Liverpool and am looking to build up a tutoring profile here. In previous academic years I have had the following distribution of students:

2015-16: 7 A Level, 5 GCSE
2014-15: 3 A Level, 5 GCSE

All of my students have achieved over and above their expected grades.

In addition, I teach the violin and viola to children and adults, from beginner to diploma level. I should clarify that I don't teach academic music, rather am happy teaching instrumental music to the age groups listed. I am able to combine mathematics tuition and music teaching for individuals who would be interested.

Tutoring Approach:

For those studying A Level and GCSE Mathematics, it is very important to be able to identify areas which require work and bring these to the attention of a tutor; my approach to mathematics tutoring is a student lead approach. I also like to instigate discussions about general study and revision technique which can be transferred to other subjects as well. Given the appropriate contact time with me, students are always prepared for exams well in advance.

I offer an introductory session at no fee. This is for myself, the student and parent(s) to get to know each other, and also to discuss where the student would like help.

My music teaching approach is focused on general musicianship and encouraging the enjoyment of playing. I do work on grades with my students but prefer to allow them to develop to a point that I know they will be able to pass their exams easily. Many students who are taught with too much of a focus on grades give up and stop playing altogether, and this is the reason for my approach.
