Personal Description:
I am an experienced, friendly and approachable lady working on a freelance basis and am still involved with High School teaching in the Leeds area. I worked in industry before deciding to fulfil my ambition to become a teacher.


My experience as a private tutor has been extremely rewarding over the years and I have seen every one of my students go from strength to strength, and am proud to say that they have all enjoyed the one to one experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have twenty years' experience of teaching English in High Schools -class teaching and one to one tuition. My expertise also incorporates teaching English as a second language having gained a Trinity qualification in Barcelona.
Over the years I have had considerable success with a variety of students, improving achievement levels and GCSE grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly person who tries to make learning fun. I understand the frustrations of young people who are demotivated and struggling to make sense of the English curriculum. My view is that there has to be a two way process and I will encourage the student to develop independent learning skills.

Practising a holistic approach allows young people to achieve their full potential through an appropriate tailor-made study plan. This will support their individual needs and requirements for personal and educational development.

I am happy to teach students in my home or the student's-depending on distance. Travel expenses would be charged if not in my local area-LS17 (North Leeds).

Personal Description:
Hello - thanks for looking at my tutoring page. I am an experienced teacher, having worked in a range of schools over the last 7 years. I am an active musician, composing music as well as performing - both as a singer and an organist. I have broad musical interests - I'm just at home listening to John Grant as I am to Rachmaninov. I'm friendly and approachable, and keen to help all people to meet their full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a teacher since graduating from the University of Oxford in 2007. I completed my PGCE Teacher Training in 2008, working in a range of contrasting environments. I spent the first two years of my teaching career at a school in Gloucestershire, where I was responsible for developing teaching resources at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. I currently head up the Music Department in a high-achieving school in Wimbledon. I am very experienced teaching the Edexcel and AQA GCSE, AS and A2 Music courses, but am also a Senior Examiner for AQA in their A Level papers. I have previous experience of teaching History to A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

More than anything, I think that it is important to establish your goals for our tutorials at the start. This ensures that we can work together to get the results you want. I am able to travel (within reason) to your house via public transport/car. I have lots of helpful resources that I have produced and published which will greatly aid your learning and help you to increase your understanding. I am able to tutor via Skype or Facetime if this is more convenient to you. I run Sibelius at home. I am friendly, approachable and professional with a strong knowledge of music and history. I am able to help with University preparation should this be of interest and work closely with pupils in their applications for Music College/Oxbridge.

Personal Description:
My name is Laurence, I am a University French teacher, I provide French lessons to student for academic, business and leisure purposes

Teaching Experience:

.I have a lot of experience in teaching, first from my father who is a doctor in law and has taught for many years in primary, college and university. Also, I have experience providing French classes to A-level students in college, and French for Beginners, intermediate and advanced level. Using resources from AQA, BBC, Edexcel, Palgrave and more. I am also researching on many projects to develop teaching and learning of French via VLE, Social Media, e-learning tools

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to identify student needs in a one to one interview or test, I create a lesson plan, and I talk with my student on the methods and the teaching preferences. I design the French experience and choose the best resource to facilitate my students learning. I am approachable and accessible, and I encourage my student to feel comfortable to talk to me. I challenge the stereotype and discrimination, and I promote a healthy learning environment using a range of teaching and learning approaches based upon student needs to encourage and motivate students to speak French with confidence and pass his exam

Personal Description:
Qualified teacher with experience in private and state schools. Education is my passion and I will always go the extra mile to get the very best out of my students.

I work as a Senior Youth Worker on the side for Hornsea Town Council; do work with Bridlington Youth Club and also work with children in care.

Spare time is a luxury but I love volunteering and helping kids to be kids! (With lots of subliminal learning taking place unbeknownst to them!)

I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction novels. Notable authors include Robin Jarvis and Terry Pratchett.

Teaching Experience:

"Your lessons are like magic" - the moment a Year 3 child at the end of our Latin lesson said this is a moment etched in time firmly within my mind. Knowing that I was and continue to have a positive impact on someone's life and education is mind-blowing and it is from this where I gain true satisfaction from teaching and the desire to keep going; to keep helping and to keep being that rolemodel for future generations of children.

I have had teaching experience in the state sector as well as the private sector. Primarily, my teaching has been focused in the Early Years. I have also taught in Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and a little bit of Key Stage 3. I am quite fluent in all Primary subjects with a specialism in English; Phonics and Latin which I have taught to Year , Year 7 and Year 9.

Tutoring Approach:

I like my lessons to be FUN.

I know if my lessons truly engage the learner, I know I am going to succeed even before the lesson has started.

I like to take time to really get to know my students to encourage deeper learning. I like to challenge; motivate; inspire and really go for gold. My expectations are high and I expect the very best.

Personal Description:
I am about to enter my first year studying Medicine at the Imperial College London after finishing my A levels at a South London school. I have an excellent academic record with 7 A-stars and 3 As in my IGCSE's. I have also achieve the highest score on IGCSE mathematics.

I gained 7 As at AS level. I received an average of 97.8% across the 5 science subjects (math, further math, biology, chemistry and physics). I have also achieved Gold awards at the British Biology Olympiad , Senior Math Challenge and the International Chemistry Olympiad. I self taught myself Further Math modules during AS year; I learned FP1 and D1 last year and achieve 98% on both modules. I enjoy the challenge of maths so I self taught two more A2 modules namely FP2 and S3 and I got 100% and 93% respectively. My A level results were 4A* and 1A. I gained 600/600 in A level Maths, 97% in A level Further Maths, 96.7% in Chemistry, 96% in Physics and 92.7% in Biology overall.

I am originally from Malaysia and I am fluent in both Chinese and English, and I can tailor the lessons to focus on whatever students want to learn about. I am keen to tutor students on sciences, math and mandarin. My main academic interests are medical statistics and applied biotechnology. In addition, I play two instruments and enjoy playing tennis and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring secondary students English and Maths during my time in China. When I first moved to London, I started tutoring students on GCSE sciences. I volunteer to teach English students Mandarin during my time in school. Having been through the stress of exams, I have also held numerous study groups and sessions in order to aid pupils further. I also received an opportunity to tutor two girls on As level Maths and Chemistry for two months or so before the summer 2015 exams.

During the summer, I successfully received a full time job teaching A level Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Toefl English in a tutorial institution in Zhuhai, China for 3 weeks. It was a challenge for me teaching full time and preparing lessons every day to meet the demand of the students. In the end, it was a rewarding experience for me.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be enjoyed, I believe the best way to learn is by finding what you are learning interesting so I will aim to make whatever I teach interesting for the student. My approach is tailored to the needs and preferences of the student. Lessons can include:
- Recapping material covered in class
- Going through homework
- Focussing on difficult concepts
- Past exam questions & exam technique
I am willing to answer any questions they have as long as they send me an-email so that I can reply.

Personal Description:
Hi!

My name is Artur, I come from Poland. I would love to share my skills, with anyone who is motivated and willing to learn!

I'd love to think of myself as thoughtful, caring, attentive, and always trying to bring out the best from people. My success is Your success, as I feel a sense of deep satisfaction whenever I see one of my students, realizing their goals and making progress.

Teaching Experience:

I have three years of experience in teaching drums, I thought children as well as adults. All of them had vastly different goals and aspirations. This gave me a rich experience, as working with different individuals, shows how people have different modes of learning and require drastically different approach.

I learned importance of cooperation, willingness to listen, and speaking the language of the student, in order to get through. Stepping into someone elses shoes is a great skill to have, as it allows me to see the world from someone else's perspective and truly help them.

Tutoring Approach:

I always do my best to get to know the person I am teaching, in order to personalize the lesson and make it suitable for every student.

Why You Should Choose Me

This approach works because we are all unique individuals, and information can be presented and related in many different ways, to craft a lesson that is truly understandable to anyone.

I believe that aspriation and motivation is much more important than talent, so I always treat all the student equally, and make sure that they receive enough attention so their natural abilities can grow and flourish.

I try to be firm, yet relaxed. I belive in encouraging and rewarding the process, not the results, which yields great results in the end.

If You are motivated and eager to learn, let me know as soon as possible! I'm sure we will have a great time and You will develop Your skills whether it is brushing off Your Polish vocabulary, or learning it from scratch!

Personal Description:
I am a certificated Senior Chinese Language Teacher with IPA Certification. I have taught adult individual students as well as children in groups. I have lived in Beijing, Tianjing, Xi'an and Shenzhen and am well travelled throughout the rest of China. It would be a plus to choose me if you are interested in Chinese architecture, gardens, business culture, or different kinds of Chinese food, as well as Chinese calligraphy. I have lived or travelled in many countries in Europe, America, Africa, Asian and Oceania. So, with my international background, I am comfortable with a diverse range of people.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught adult individual students, individual children and children in group. One of my adult student is an university researcher. I have taught him spoken and written Chinese for several years. My children students liked my class very much. Sometime, I taught language together with sports for children.

Currently, I am teaching in a community school in Manchester. My students are 12~13 years old, a group of 24 boys and girls. They like the Chinese language class and asked many questions about Chinese language and culture. Every weekend, I teach a 7-year old girl and her father at the same time. They are learning Mandarin listening and speaking. I really enjoy teaching them all.

Tutoring Approach:

I taught Chinese language in different ways according to my student's needs. I would like to know my student's language aims and time he or she will have to spend before we start to work together. I taught my university researcher student with listening, speaking, reading and writing all together, from begining. For another student, I taught her spoken language through discusing daily life and Chinese cultural topics she was interested in. Sometimes, I taught my children students Chinese language through yoga postures and games, which they liked very much.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed a PGCE Secondary course in ICT. I have worked with Primary School pupils, High School pupils and College pupils. As well as ICT I have also taught Maths, English and Science to GCSE pupils.

In my experience the benefits of one-to-one tuition are incomparable. When teaching a student I am able to tailor the teaching to address their specific questions and misconceptions, whilst covering topics at a far greater depth and speed than is possible in a class of 30.

By far the biggest benefit of tuition I have seen in my students is a vast increase in their confidence and to see them realise and believe that they can understand different topics and are fully capable of achieving high grades.

Teaching Experience:

Rochdale Sixth Form College - ICT Teacher
Abraham Moss High School - Trainee IT Teacher
Walkden High School - Trainee IT Teacher
The Tutor Trust - Maths, English and Science Tutor
Crumpsall Lane Primary School - Voluntary Work

Tutoring Approach:

I am an approachable, caring and understanding individual with the keen interest of helping people to achieve. I have an excellent ability to break down difficult topics to make them easier to understand. As well as being an ICT teacher I also have experience of helping children through GCSE Maths, English and Science and often to their desired grade. I am an honest and hardworking person who takes great delight in seeing pupils make progress.

I have the ability to differentiate work to cater for different individuals and make learning fun. I am creative and have the experience to use every environment as a teaching tool. I can guarantee you will make progress with my support and hope to be able to offer my services.

My main interest is in creating an enjoyable and comfortable working environment that draws up from the students personality and employs a variety of different learning type activities and lateral thinking exercises to obtain not only improved subject results but a greater awareness and confidence within their subject matter.

My tuition sessions are bespoke and are structured around the needs of the student. Throughout my teaching I place an emphasis on understanding why particular methods are used and how topics link together. I also ensure students are exposed to a wide variety of questions styles from across exam boards to develop their ability to apply these skills to unfamiliar styles of question. Above all, I aim to raise the confidence and expectations of my students and to see them enjoy learning.

During the first introductory session I will make an assessment of your ability and discuss what you wish to achieve e.g. a certain grade/better understanding of a particular area, or develop exam technique. I will then use this information to create an individual learning plan and tailor my tuition accordingly as we work together to help you achieve your goal.

Personal Description:
Playing the Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo and Harmonica and creating traditional Fine Art have been and are a major part of my life. Much as I would have very much liked to do, I never had the opportunity to become a Professional Performing Musician or a fully Professional Fine Artist . I have performed in public of course, and held exhibitions, but very rarely on a professional/paid basis. I have been a guitarist for over 45 years and an artist for 23 years

I studied art at the Thanet Schools of Art & the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design (the same College David Bowie went to)
for two and a half years. After that I had a twenty two year absence from art.

A change came in 1992: It was during a period of Long Term Unemployment. Whilst signing on at my local Job Center, I volunteered to go on an "Employment Action Course. In a sense this was a form of working for your benefit and was paid an extra 10 per week on top of Job Seekers Allowance. Hopefully this would have lead to work prospects, ideally in Art or The Arts. I had to report to a work placement provider who asked me what skills I had, to which I said "Art" and was assigned to a local Community Arts Center based in Gillingham Kent and appointed as a publicity designer and resources worker.

Whilst in my publicity artist role I was introduced to the then K.C.C Arts Promotion Officer Jim Shean who took interest in my art work and arranged an exhibition hire space without charge at my local library, the event was covered on Radio Kent's "Scene & Heard" Program. I also contacted the local junior school where my children attended and made a proposition if I could exhibit there. In return the headmaster asked my to come into the School twice a week and teach the children art, this featured in a local press article.

Over the years from 1992 to date I have held numerous small one man exhibitions in the Medway Towns and a little further afield and have manged to sell some (just enough to pay a few bills). In the last year or so I have been a little inactive in my art but hope to resolve that soon.

Teaching Experience:

16 years freelance one to one teaching of Guitar - Mandolin - Banjo - Ukulele - Harmonica and Basic Keyboard
Currently a Children s reading assistant for the Beanstalk Charity Project

Tutoring Approach:

Being a music teacher has at least allowed me to put my love of music to a measure of professional application, perhaps to make up for the lost opportunity and time. Being paid is a motivation, but far more importantly teaching others to play and create music is much more enjoyable, I have often gone overtime on my lessons and never charged extra. Also to be considered is the experience gained over many decades of musical struggling, mistakes, embarrassing moments during performance and how to overcome them that I can impart to my pupils. I also look forward to the pupil making sufficient progress so that I can have the pleasure to "Jam" with them.

Personal Description:
I am a second year university Student in Southampton, I study Journalism and achieved a first in the first year of university. I want to pass on knowledge I have learnt in a number of work places, including Reuters in Canary Warf. I specialise in Journalism, History, Politics and in particular English Language.

Teaching Experience:

Have taught for a brief time in Primary Schools, however the main part of my teaching is now peer to peer making it less intimidating for a student to ask questions they may have on a topic.

In my secondary school I was a mentor for 11-17 year olds providing help and support for any school related needs they may have had.

I find nothing more fulfilling that helping a fellow student and watching them learn and understand the problem they once had trouble with.

Tutoring Approach:

Students will be able to voice questions they may have, and not feel embarrassed as I am a student myself. There will be homework involved, and I will target the area of the subject that the student is struggling with.

The fact I am still a student is important as I can bridge the gap between teacher and student. The most common problem students come to me with is that they feel embarrassed to ask questions to their school teacher.

I do not try and recite words from a textbook, but ask the students to learn from my experiences and ultimately do the best they can do.
