Personal Description:
I am an experienced and qualified tutor - I have a mathematics PhD and have been tutoring at all levels (from GCSE through to undergraduate) for over a decade. I believe any student can become strong in maths with good tuition and a little work.

I'm also the author of Basic Maths For Dummies, AS- & A-Level Maths For Dummies, and several more titles in the For Dummies range.

"I am planning on recommending Colin's tutoring to any of my friends who need help. He was patient and made the material easier to understand despite the fact that I hadn't taken math in years. I got a great grade too!"
- MC, Utah

Teaching Experience:

* Started tutoring GCSE maths while doing A-levels
* Tutored through university career
* Have always been complimented on my ability to make difficult ideas simple without patronising

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to encourage students to look at problems methodically and to help understand the ideas behind the theory by using simple, real-world examples. I teach that it's not just getting the right answer that is important, but understanding how you got there and knowing that the answer is right.

Lessons take place either online or at my classroom in Weymouth.

Personal Description:
My name is Andy. I finished my A-Levels in 2011 and am preparing to study German and Russian at The University of Cambridge starting in October. I excelled at languages in school, receiving an A* in German A2 and an A in French AS. Between school and university I studied at the Goethe Institute in Berlin, lived and worked in Germany for over half a year, and am now starting to learn Russian and pusuing my other interests such as computer programming. I have also travelled extensively in France and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have no formal teaching experience (yet!) but learning three foreign languages myself and having studied German in a class actually taught in German, I am very familiar with the aspects of language that students have difficulty with. I am always thinking of better ways to explain things than the way they were explained to me, because every student learns in their own way; this makes me well placed to teach languages, German in particular due to my recent experiences in my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

Having only recently completed my German GCSE myself (in 2009), I am familiar with the way it is taught in school. I also had lessons from a private tutor myself in German for a year or so during secondary school, so I know the sorts of things that will complement and expand on the material taught in class.

Teaching Experience:

Deborah has taught a multitude of classes and taken many workshops over the years, including at primary and secondary schools, and also spent a year in Thailand teaching English and Spanish to children at a private secondary school and took private tuition for university students and adults, as well as the Thai Military.

Deborah has worked for Perform (similar to Stagecoach) and The Cat's Grin Theatre Company, and coaches and provides tuition to adults and kids alike. A whole host of specific, targeted tuition is available, be they preparing audition pieces, running through scripts for shows, dissecting Shakespeare to find meaning and understanding or simply development techniques for voice, movement, delivery, confidence and so on. She has also prepared Best Men for their wedding speeches as well as Business Managers for important presenting events and assisted in the development of their delivery and re-work presentations for maximum impact.

Deborah has also worked extensively in the corporate environment in the City (Canary Wharf, Cannon Street et al), in the main working as an HR Recruitment Manager for banking and finance industries (HSBC, Lloyds etc), and so utilises these experiences - client meetings, board-level presentations, business development/sales and interviewing, to assist the more commercial, business-minded student to achieve their goals - be it brushing up on their interview technique and how to sell oneself or making speeches at VIP business events.

Deborah is also a mum to a 3.5 year old boy, who conveys no shyness whatsoever!

Tutoring Approach:

Deborah is warm, approachable and at ease, and whilst maintains a professional outlook, has a strategy that is fun and enjoyable, working with the personality and character of each student. Deborah adapts to the needs and requirements of the pupil and often pin points and weeds out bad habits or hidden talents, gets the student to think about nuances and anomalies they may not have been aware of about themselves to bring out the best potential for the task at hand. She has a knack of finding other skills and abilities in her students that offers more light and marketability to their approach to drama, acting, presenting and so on.

Deborah also leads group classes should you seek a more workshop feel. Fees can be negotiated depending on size of group, age and objective.

Personal Description:
My name is Shadi, I am French native speaker and I live in West London (Barons Court) for 5 years now.
My colleagues say I am a very communicative person, hard worker and perfectionist. I have a cosmopolitan culture which helps me to be open-minded and very approachable by my students. I have worked as a Marketing Manager for over 10 years in Paris but my deep passion has always been teaching languages. I have realised my dream relocating to London.

In addition to French I am also fully fluent in Italian where I have lived and worked for over 3 years. My passion for Italian Culture and Language has no limits.

Moreover I am well organised, punctual reliable and specially enthusiastic with a fun and approachable teaching manner with my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have started to teach to adults in private and corporate trainings for over a year for big companies in the City of London (both Italian and French). Some of my group adult students switched to private lessons and I still teach them all the ways to improve not only their language level but also their knowledge of the culture and the country of the language they learn.

I have travelled a lot for professional and personal purposes and I have a very easy ability to communicate. Even if I have not taught for many years my knowledge and working experience has given me enough confidence to adapt myself very quickly and easily in the languages I know.

I am able to teach French and Italian at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I have had the opportunity to teach in London in corporate trainings to adults at a very demanding level. Needs were not the same, some wanted learn for pleasure others wanted to learn for professional purposes in order to catch new opportunities of work.
Feedbacks has demonstrated that I was not only adaptable, but also good listener and approachable. This is how I believe teaching has to focus on.

There are no secrets, enjoy what you do and you will learn it faster is my credo

Personal Description:
Born in Edinburgh, I was raised in India and then Africa, before returning to the UK. Having lived in London and South East England since then, our family moved to the Scottish Highlands in 2012, primarily to raise our children in a less chaotic and more natural environment. We've had no regrets at all...and our various dogs and cats are similarly happy with the move!

I have always been passionate about English, from the weekly spelling tests and grammar exercises of primary school to the privilege of being taught at A Level by Tolkien's grandson. His vibrant, interactive approach shaped my ongoing learning and fired my imagination. After leaving Edinburgh University with a Masters in English Language and Literature, I went on to take a TEFL qualification and used this when travelling abroad in Turkey and throughout the Caribbean. I am delighted that I continue to work in the area of EAL with overseas students in British schools, and that technology has allowed me to work with individuals in their home countries, via Skype.

My love of English directed my career, working first at the Royal Shakespeare Company before becoming an independent theatre producer in London, and a theatre advertising executive on accounts such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' and Cameron Mackintosh's 'Les Miserables'.

In 2008, my partner and I began the home education of our two children at primary stage. It was both challenging and inspirational and the experiences and knowledge I gained during those years - not purely academic, but also the different ways and methods of learning, the different developmental stages of children, the different learning styles of children - continue to inform my present day tutoring.

While home educating, and with my love of theatre, I founded an educational theatre group, Active Arts, with Margo Gunn, a teacher and director at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. We worked with a wide age range of home educated and mainstream school children, providing workshops on various Shakespeare plays including 'Midsummer Night's Dream', 'The Tempest' and 'Romeo & Juliet'. Workshops were also designed specifically in support of GCSE/IGCSE work. As passionate advocates of Shakespeare, our approach was active and energetic, lifting Shakespeare off the page and introducing his plays, his language and his theatricality in an engaging and tangible manner. I was thrilled to be able to resurrect this work in the Highlands, initially at a local primary school, conducting 4 workshops for Primary 4-Primary 7, resulting in workshop presentations of 'The Tempest' and 'Macbeth'.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to home educating my two children and running Active Arts, my personal and professional lives led me into private tutoring and I have been a private tutor in English Language and Literature since 2009, working alongside children and young people from age 5 upwards, whether on general literacy issues, EAL or focusing specifically on exam work, from SATS, Nationals and GCSEs, through to A Levels, Highers and beyond. Tutees have been those in mainstream state schools, leading UK private schools and home education, following the English and Scottish curriculums, as well as IGCSEs with providers including Cambridge, OOL and Edexcel.

A number of my tutees have challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Tourette's and dyslexia, and the combination of experience, research and support courses have built my knowledge and understanding in these areas.

While I am registered with tutoring agencies, many of my tutees come via personal recommendation and I was delighted that tutees I had worked with in England chose to continue working with me via Skype after our move to Scotland.

Critically, I am PVG checked, and would be happy to provide evidence of this, together with references and qualification documentation.

Tutoring Approach:

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
My approach is not one of 'dip in and out' for an hour, or 'one size fits all', but of creating a relaxed, enjoyable, constructive atmosphere and building a relationship within which the young person's potential can be maximised, against a tailored, individual approach. While texts and challenges might be shared by various tutees, learning styles, atmospheres for learning, methods for learning, will always be different.
As importantly, my approach places great value on the parents, their involvement and their right and need for clear, ongoing and comprehensive communication. As such, I am often in regular contact with both my tutees and their parents, should they require it, outside of tutorials.

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited."
Plutarch

If you're looking for a desk-based tutor, one who does all the talking and expects your child to just sit and listen, I am not the right person for you.

If you're looking for someone to ignite a love of English, to build confidence, to be energetic, to make learning enjoyable, active, off the page, accessible, then, here I am!

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
For many young people with whom I work, English and everything to do with it - their texts, their homework, punctuation, close reading, writing an essay - is a minefield. Often, what holds them back is a mixture of low confidence, fear of getting it wrong, and simply not having grasped the 'map' of how to 'do it'.

One of my main motivations, is to make English accessible; to take away the fear factor, to provide clear and simple structures, to grasp some key exam techniques, to demystify the exam paper, to clarify what the heck the exam paper is testing them on; to remind tutees that they have, naturally, learned one of the most difficult languages in the world and are fully capable of expressing themselves on paper, under pressure and against time.

However whimsical it may sound, as with many things in life, self-belief and understanding are powerful tools for success.


MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
The demand for private tutoring is growing exponentially. As The Telegraph reported in 2012, "more than a quarter of parents use private tutoring to supplement their children's education", spending "6bn a year in the UK." A double page spread in Femail, February 2015, states research that almost 1 in 4 children are now privately tutored, with pupils at private schools almost twice as likely to have private tutoring than those from state schools. Whatever explanation there is for this rise, cost to parents remains an obvious barrier to its provision.

I am, of course, a 'business', but I also firmly believe that access to tutoring should be made as wide as possible; education is a right and not a privilege. As such, while I have a standard rate for 1-1 tutoring, I am also very happy to discuss your requirements with you and to look at options available, such as small group tutoring where the cost per head can be significantly reduced.

Please do take the opportunity of discussing your requirements with me, rather than potentially losing the opportunity of providing tutorial support for your child.

Personal Description:
I am a professional, patient, and fun loving person. I have a BSc., MSc., and am just completing a PhD in Psychology. I enjoy reading and writing academic and popular literature and I have a broad knowledge of assessment criteria used by schools and universities.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 3 years now at the undergraduate, postgraduate, and adult learner level. I have taught traditional lectures, seminars, workshops, and practical sessions. I also have experience designing and marking assessments at different levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be an enjoyable but challenging experience. I utilise a mix of paper-based tasks, presentations, and reading. I believe in constantly measuring performance for individuals so they know how they are improving and I also employ an "errorless learning" approach; I don't believe highlighting peoples failures is an effective method of teaching, rather I treat a wrong answer as a learning experience and encourage people to fail often so that they can grow rapidly.

I derive my learning materials from the official syllabus and supplement my own material when I feel a broader knowledge is necessary. I also focus on written and oral communication so that factual knowledge can be effectively translated to exam success.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name's Jordan, I am a recent English Literature graduate from The University of Exeter. I am currently working as a part-time Teaching Assistant alongside my tutoring, and hope to start teacher training next year. I have always had a passion for Literature and spend most of my free time reading! I am friendly, patient and dedicated to helping others.

Teaching Experience:

I have lots of experience in proofreading, editing and advising on assignments. At university I was selected to work at the Writing Centre which offered help in writing academic essays, preparing presentations and preparing for exams. This mainly involved holding 1-to-1 sessions with other students as well as preparing and presenting the occasional workshop, usually on essay structure and exam prep.

I have been online tutoring for just under a year, and have completed numerous tutorials for students of all abilities, all of which have been rated 5*. Frequent feedback praises my organisation, clarity and delivery of sessions, as well as my in-depth preparation and extra notes to support students.

My interest in pursuing a career in teaching means that I also have some classroom experience. I'm happy to help with GCSE and A-Level studies as well as University applications. I can also offer designing specialised exam revision timetables.

Tutoring Approach:

Our tutoring sessions will be lead by you, covering specific aspects of the course that you are struggling with, or just things you'd like to improve on! As exam season is ahead of us, I'd also be able to help with revision techniques and exam advice. I am also able to read and offer constructive feedback on written work, whether it's an essay plan, draft or completed piece of work. Reading pupils' work and advising on grammar, structure, clarity and content is all part of my job at the Writing Centre, this is a particular area that I would be delighted to provide help in. Sometimes all it takes is a second pair of eyes to help! I am also able to proofread and offer constructive feedback on any personal statements or practise exam questions etc. So please do get in touch!

I'm more than happy to answer any questions or queries, just give me a call or email and we can talk through the areas you'd like to focus on. Please let me know which subject and level you are studying at, and if applicable which exam board you are with.
