Personal Description:
I'm an Associate of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Institute for Learning. I work as an A-level tutor, examiner and AQA adviser to schools. I have a PhD in Biochemistry and have published several scientific research papers.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and tutoring A-level chemistry for 11 years. I specialise in the AQA exam board and work as an examiner and adviser to schools. I have also been teaching online for 5 years using the EvoTuition tutoring platform and have new digital teaching resources for 2016. I previously taught at Durham University and received the Durham University Teaching and Learning Award in 2011. I now tutor exclusively for AQA due to my work for this exam board (since 2013 I no longer offer tuition for OCR, Edexcel or CIE boards).

Over the years I have tutored hundreds of A-level chemistry students. My lessons are based around developing exam technique as well as improving understanding. Last year, I produced a full set of new teaching resources and practise questions for the new AQA specification, which I share with all my students (the new specification started in September 2015). I am happy to offer a free 30 minute trial lesson and answer any questions.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name's Ed. I read Classics at Cambridge before going on to train at the Bristol Old Vic. I'm now working as a professional actor in London.

I tutor in English, and all areas of Latin and Ancient Greek. If it's of interest, I particularly specialized in my finals papers on Homer, Virgil, Horace, and the evolution of tragedy.

Though I read Classics, a large chunk of my finals actually ended up being part of the English course - specifically tracing the origins of tragedy through to the present day. As an actor, too, I'm continually having to familiarize myself with new areas of literature, be it poetry, drama, or prose, with the advantage, I hope, of an extremely practical approach.

Teaching Experience:

Overall, I've found it best to keep a balance between tutoring English and Classics. I like to be teaching a range of things.

When moving to Bristol I was lucky enough to be offered a part-time teaching post with the Classics department at Clifton College. Over the two years I primarily taught A level language work in Greek and Latin, as well as coaching their prospective candidates for Oxford and Cambridge.

I've also done a lot of free-lancing in all sorts of areas for both English and Classics, tutoring Oxbridge applicants as well as students at both school and university level.

The work I've done with my tutees has varied widely. In Latin and Greek, I've assisted some specifically in translating set texts both at school and university level (I'm now very familiar with the OCR Latin syllabus); I've introduced others, who wished to explore beyond their prescribed syllabus, to new areas of literature; and with others I've worked on more wide-ranging ways to deepen literary analysis or approach translation.

I should probably add that my language work with school students has almost exclusively involved tackling the inadequacies of the confounded Cambridge Latin Course! This seems to be taught in virtually every school but seemingly never elects to teach grammar, which I find utterly bizarre. If you're a victim of this clueless course I'm more than happy to help!

In terms of English tuition, I've been fortunate enough to have a similarly broad range of tutees, at GCSE, A level, and university standard, though a high proportion have been Oxbridge candidates.

Some references from previous tutees below:

Naomi, A Level Latin and Greek (2013)

Ed,

Sorry it's so early but I just thought I'd let you know I got my Cambridge grades! Thank you so much for everything once again!

Neirin, Latin GCSE (2013)

Hello Ed. We are so delighted with Neirin's results, absolutely fabulous. And who would have thought - an A star in Latin! Thank you for all your effort and encouragement. He couldn't have done it without you. Enjoy the rest of the summer and good luck with the writing.

Katie, Oxbridge Ancient Greek (2013)

Ed's work with Katie has been completely outstanding. I think we were asking for something quite demanding, a combination of literature and language, with inspiration to boot, and he delivered it superbly. Katie was super-enthused by his approach. I think they both thoroughly enjoyed the classes (indeed from the sound of it I would have enjoyed them myself!) Ed has a combination of intellect, passion and (as far as I can judge) a real feel for the texts!

Zac, Scholarship Latin (2014)

Ed has been tutoring our 11 year old for Latin scholarship papers. In 5 sessions he has taken him to a new level and has totally inspired him! We can't recommend him highly enough!...

Hiya Ed,

Thanks for the email ... got an A* in Philosophy and A's in Latin and English.

Thank you very much for all your help, couldn't have got the A without your tutoring.

Hope all goes well for you at theatre school and you're enjoying the summer.

Best wishes,

Sophie.


You're also welcome to get in touch with the Head of Classics at Clifton College, Mr Huntington, who employed me at the school between 2009 and 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it's impossible to pin down a sure-fire method of effective tutoring for any given person. People are different, and different methods work with different people.

That said, I am a firm believer that you cannot simply speak at someone. Learning has to be an active process, and I think there has to be involvement from both sides for things to sink in. In this light, I do try to make things enjoyable, and also to limit shortcuts; I'm of the view that it's far better to invest the time in getting firmly to grips with a subject, be it an instance of grammar or literary concept. In the long run that is a shortcut in itself.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all i will look at the course, its outline if its provided by the school/college/university. Then i will review the text books if any and if needed recommend any other relevant book the student should consult. Take a small interview from the student to check his/her abilities.On the basis of that i will judge from where we have o start.Do the student need to start from very basis or scratch or from some point in the mid etc.I will focus on repeating the daya to day work the student has done in the class so that if he/she might need any clerification it should be fix first and for that if I have to do some background work I am wiling to do that. Unless or until the student is not satisfied or I am not sure if he understand or not the concepts get cleared or not,I will not move forward.

(I am the brunette in the picture)

Teaching Experience:

I have spent a year working in France as a teaching assistant with the British Council, where I taught English to students aged 15-22. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience working in a different culture, and to hone my presentation and organisational skills in a new and challenging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make learning fun, and to motivate students. I do this by setting interesting and diverse themes. I then divide individual classes into several activities to help keep students engaged. I regularly employ vocabulary games and set challenges, which are surprisingly effective way for students to learn and retain new words whilst making the lessons more enjoyable for the students!

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Kathryn, I am 32 years old and hold a doctorate in quantitative fisheries science. Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher at Bangor University Ocean Sciences, conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis in fisheries science. I love my postdoc and I have a passion for teaching. My career goal is to become a lecturer. At the moment I don't lecture within the university so I would like to tutor, which is something I have lots of experience in over the past years and is something that I love doing. I particularly enjoy enabling others with learning and building a relationship through that. Scholarship is something very close to my heart with a personal passion for learning. I feel privileged to be able to help others and enjoy working with different styles and learning techniques. I am a very understanding person and like to make anyone I work with feel positive about their learning. I can work to the pace of the student and am happy to adapt my teaching and expectations to what is best for the student, which is decided upon by both of us.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutoring experience from the last 9 years where I started in London teaching GCSE biology and A-Level psychology. Since then I have tutored many different fields of biological and ecological sciences at graduate level (Bachelor level). I have had experience delivering tens of lectures at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and Bangor University. I have marked coursework and provided teaching and support for multiple practical sessions. I have a particularly engaging attitude and am always available for extra support for all levels of students. I started my teaching career as a classroom assistant when I was studying at Cardiff University and since then have always had a passion for helping others learn. The first time someone understands a concept or develops their own ideas as a result of it is an empowering step and can be used to fuel a thirst for more understanding. I have worked with individuals and small groups, larger groups and classrooms as well as lecture theaters.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a student focused approach. Teaching should be conducted with the learner in mind. Everyone learns in different ways. some people like to learn on their own, others through discussions or interactive set-ups. Most people don't know how best they learn as this is not a focus in current education, so this is something I will talk to the student about and something that we can identify and develop together. I create a safe learning environment where there is no such thing as a silly question or answer. I have a passion for people and learning should always be enjoyable, so my sessions reflect this. I understand the way that information is processed and make best use of presenting well organised information that is often re-capped and constantly placed in the wider context. Feedback is one of the best ways that a student can learn and encouraging self-feedback is something I feel strongly is a fantastic way to learn. I have a very positive attitude and am understanding and like to push my students. I will ensure that learning is maximised by tailoring it to the individual and I encourage different styles of working, for example marking your own work with a marking scheme, discussions, questioning the status quo and what if scenarios. I also enjoy receiving feedback from the students so that I can constantly check that I am making the most of our time together. Overall my sessions are applicable, fun and challenging, and no two sessions are the same.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a 25 year old Physics graduate who loves helping students master concepts they once found so confusing. I have a very down to earth manner, explaining things in such a way that helps turn Maths and Physics exams into common sense. The feedback I`ve received so far has been overwhelmingly positive and I've become friends with students whilst at the same time they excel in their examinations. Maths doesn`t have to be a chore, with a little enthusiasm, effort and creativity even the most disenchanted student can become a whizz kid.

Teaching Experience:

I've been tutoring for almost a year now. I've taught maths and physics to year 8 through to year 13 for exam boards AQA and Edexcel. I currently tutor for 12 hours a week and counting.

Tutoring Approach:

Patient, direct, friendly, smart, simple, involving, calming, enthusiastic and effective.
