Personal Description:
"Thank you very much for the great work you did with my daughter Sophie. She progressed from a 'C' grade to an 'A' grade in the space of 6 months and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends." - Billy, Bangor

As an experienced private tutor with a 100% pass rate, I offer highly effective, tailored lessons to a wide-range of students with various ability, learning types, and academic stages.

I have a passion for learning and fully appreciate all the forms that this can take. My approach is tailored to each student's own learning style and my methods aim both to support and to engage the student to continue learning in their own way.

Teaching Experience:

"The learning exercises were always set around my interest areas, making tuition both fun and effective. Following my sessions with Andrew, I have developed a more concise way of communicating. My writing now has more flow, which helps me say what I need to say." - Neil , Newtownabbey

Professional certified Life Coach and successful university graduate (1st class hons) with additional masters research degree. Taught at Secondary school and now several successful years tutoring especially English and Maths for most ages and stages, and passionate about nurturing the potential of each student whom I have the privilege to tutor.

Also a regular public speaker and workshop leader in areas including stress-awareness and communication skills, to self-care and personal development.

Tutoring Approach:

"Andrew was very professional in his approach to tutoring. My daughter gained confidence in her ability to understand her subject and to recall information using association techniques which proved very useful in her examinations."
Grainne, Randalstown

Combining motivational coaching techniques, I offer a fully engaging and personalised education. During the first session I will always undertake a comprehensive learning needs assessment, the results of which I make available to the parent. While encouraging the student to adopt high yet achievable targets for their own eduction, I am also sensitive to the level of each student and what he or she is ready to adopt.

This coaching-based approach I take has proven highly successful for my students, as my many positive references show. I approach each student and the sessions with an open-minded attitude of what I need to learn in order to be of support. I have many areas of interest outside of education, and pride myself in my ability to engage my students at their level and within their current areas of interest. My reward is seeing students succeed in their studies as well as developing their own personal skills and confidence.

AREAS COVERED / WHAT TO EXPECT

I help primary, secondary, university/college and mature students with reading, spelling, comprehension and every area of Maths up to GCSE. Alongside the specific subjects I tutor in, I can incorporate motivational coaching on exam and essay skills. This will ensure maximum value for your investment of time, effort and money

For English or Maths the first lesson will consist of a complimentary educational assessment (usually 30 minutes) to help identify key areas for improvement . All results shared with the parent/guardian. Based on this initial assessment, a 100% individual programme of learning is tailored for your child.

Upon request I am also able to provide emotional literacy around life skills such as: motivation, communication, self belief and concentration.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for tutoring Philip this year; he adapted well with you as his new tutor and enjoyed your approach to teaching.
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a tutor. I found him to be polite, courteous, reliable, and accommodating."
- Doreen, Ballyclare

Personal Description:
I'm a BBC television journalist, with a science background. I have to Research new subjects from scratch in order to make informative programmes therefore I can take any subject matter and work hard to have a good understanding of it in a very short space of time.

My skill is teaching people new things - especially helping Students to understand subjects that they have always found difficult. I understand that everyone learns in different ways and that a single method of teaching doesn't work with everyone. By getting to know my student's personality, I discover the ways in which they learn, which means that I can work out the best way to help them to understand new subjects.

I'm patient and good humoured and am good at making people feel relaxed in my company, however I will push to ensure that the students take their work seriously.

Teaching Experience:

Eight years experience tutoring students at home and online - aged 8 upwards. Tutorial help with coursework, essay writing, exam revision and preparation, and practical film making. Tutoring sessions include tips on how to maximise exam marks.

Three months tutoring children in basic numeracy and literacy in the Philippines.

Two years as a cub scout leader - designing weekly classes and running activity sessions for 24 children, aged 8-11.

Tutoring Approach:

I take complicated information and unravel it so that it can be conveyed in simple terms and understood by people of all ages.

I teach a range of subjects in a way that makes them simple to understand and in a style adapted to each student's personality. I'm also skilled at writing reports and essays, particularly understanding all the applied thinking that needs to be demonstrated to gain extra marks.

I love teaching and pass on my enthusiasm to my students. I believe that it's essential to build up the pupil's confidence in their own ability to learn in order for them to become more interested and approach learning in a more focused way.

I always supply the students with extra Q&A revision papers so that they can continue learning outside tutorials.

Personal Description:
I passionately believe in students achieving their potential and enjoy the role of personal tutoring to further aid students learning. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business (2:1) and have worked for a number of large organisations offering a variety of depth and experience. I have experience both within state secondary and independent schools, as well as examining experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for 10 years in a variety of differing schools and colleges throughout the UK. I have taught on many different specifications for Business and Economics. I have taught on all courses AQA, OCR and EdExcel including vocational (OCR Nationals/BTEC) and traditional qualifications (GCSE/A Level).

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I like to make an initial meeting to understand the needs and objectives of the personal tutoring before developing a detailed plan of the outline of personal tutoring support. I am keen to ensure that both parents and students alike are happy with the service and will accommodate additional requests. I like to ensure that the learner is both enthused and engaged in the tutoring sessions and have a range of resources and assessment techniques.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic qualified teacher, Ukrainian by birth, who is highly proficient in Russian/Ukrainian and able to give instruction in Slavonic (Russian & Ukrainian) traditions and culture.

I am happy to tutor individuals or small groups as well as corporate clients looking for a broader approach to improving the competency of their employees for business trips or social events.

Teaching Experience:

Qualified Teacher Status, Ukrainian Language and Literature (M Ed).
Experience of individual tutoring in Ukrainian and Russian Language and Literature.
Russian, Ukrainian - native.
PhD Public Administration.

Tutoring Approach:

Before any tutoring can take place it is essential to discuss with the student and agree what the proficiency target is. Our first meeting will involve an assessment of your skill level which will allow me to determine at what level I will be teaching you. I am prepared to use any acceptable teaching method suitable for my student. This may include CDs, books and media such as Skype in addition to my more usual one-to-one tutoring.

View Sarah's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
Having gained plenty of experience both through my own studies and tutoring other students I am able to help tutees look at their subject matter from a different perspective. Given my previous studies and my Masters that I have just recently finished studying for I can relate to students study problems easily and help them with areas they are struggling to tackle. This includes from a study perspective but also the challenges of balancing life with study. Having an outsider take a look at their problems can often help.

I have obtained a 2:1 LLB Law Degree, completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice Course and a Masters in Real Estate. My previous jobs have included residential conveyancing and contract law / management within a recruitment company. Currently I work in the Property Department at DP World regularly dealing with commercial and property legal issues.

I hope that my own passion and determination for studying, learning and self-development is passed on to the tutees to help them with their own studies and future careers.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience in personal tutoring has covered a range of legal modules contained within A-Levels and Degrees. These have included Equity & Trust, Land Law, Contract Law, Family Law and European Law. This has been a combination of one-to-one teaching through the duration of a course or helping students with their assignments by reviewing their questions and giving them my initial thoughts on the subject matter and providing guidance on how to approach the issue at hand or proof reading their drafts and providing comments.

A number of students have also asked for assistance in re-sits of their exams. This can either lead to complete reviews of a module or looking at key aspects which a student has struggled with. In all cases it is important to identify what the issues have been which have led to the re-sit.

Whether a student requires assistance from a distance through online tutoring or a one-to-one approach, I will give 100% to help them achieve their full capability.

Tutoring Approach:

At no point do I write the assignment for students or simply provide them with the answers. This will not assist the student in progressing on their course or make me feel that tutoring is worthwhile. Through my own experiences I find that relating the principles / subject matter to real life situations works best. Depending on the student it may also be a case of repetition on a certain subject matter which they are unable to obtain from their existing teaching format. The most important part is finding what works best for the student and then progressing from there.

Some students prefer to interface in person, others through emails, phone calls, Skype or a combination of these formats. Should a student be close enough in location then one-to-one tutoring is available.

Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Valentinos. I am a native Greek speaker and professional teacher of the Greek language. I am passionate about teaching and the use of the new technologies in education.
I studied at the University of Athens Classical Philology (this include Modern and Ancient Greek language) and teaching approaches and theories to the subject. I graduated in 2011 and I came to Liverpool for my masters at the University of Liverpool. I studied Ancient History and at the same time, I started an online course from the center of Hellenic studies in Athens which focuses on the teaching of Greek as a foreign language.

Teaching Experience:

I am working as a teacher of the Greek language at the Greek school of Liverpool and as a private tutor. At the Greek school I teach Greek to ten years old students. As a private tutor, I have students from different background and ages. I teach children of Greek immigrants, people who love Greece and are interested in learning Greek for their holidays in the country, people who wish to retired in Greece and want to learn the language before they go. I have, also, adults students who have a family connection with Greece (their father or grandfather is Greek) and want to learn the language of their relatives back home.

Tutoring Approach:

Having students from so different backgrounds and with so different learning purposes and available time and learning pace, my teaching approach cannot be only one. I, always, arrange a pre-lesson meeting (either online or face to face) with interested people in order to obtain information regarding their level, the time they want to invest in their learning, their interests and their favourite way of learning things. Then, I suggest the appropriate learning materials. They are usually a blend of textbooks and my own materials.
I always try to make the lesson fun and productive. I, also, believe in the power of technology and the positive impact that it can have in the learning process. I use a number of online educational tools to help the learning of my students.
So, if you are interested in learning modern Greek just get in touch with me. Try it and you will not be disappointed. I can tutor you in my house or I can travel to yours. I, also, tutor online using Skype.
I hope to hear from you soon!

Personal Description:
I am currently taking my PhD in classics at Durham University, having taken my undergraduate degree in classics at Cambridge and my MA at Durham. Also I should mention that I have GCSE and A-level qualifications in Latin and Ancient Greek and am very familiar with the structure and requirements of these exams for any student who may be taking them. My current work focuses heavily on Latin literature, as I am preparing a commentary on Martial's twelfth book of epigrams, although I am equally able to offer assistance to students of classical Greek literature.

Teaching Experience:

During my undergraduate degree I gained experience in private tuition by running a weekly class for two years. The class was based around the works of Homer and catered to a range of abilities. Although the class was primarily geared around making sure the tutees could render an accurate translation of a set passage, assistance was also provided in matters of syntax and style, metrical and literary stylistic considerations, as well as explanations of socio-historical matters.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tuition will of course largely be dependent upon the needs and ability of the respective tutee. For GCSE or A-level students, however, I think it would always be best to begin each lesson with a quick test on a point of grammar and vocabulary (as there is a prescribed list of vocabulary up to AS level), and a literary stylistic feature (e.g. identifying a chiasmus etc.), since these formal aspects essentially underlie the series of unseen exams from GCSE - A-level. After this test, each lesson should focus on a text, ideally alternating each lesson with a text that is prescribed as one of the set texts for the respective exams with an unseen passage. This approach tends to produce the best results since the unseen passages give a true indication of the student's strengths and weaknesses and help the tutor to understand more easily what aspects need to be prioritised.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Sheena and I have over 5 years' experience working with children. I am currently a Primary School Teacher in Harrow and teach my class the whole curriculum therefore have a good understanding of the national curriculum. I am extremely passionate about Reading, Writing and Mathematics and believe this is the core to a child's education.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching and working with children because it gives me great satisfaction when children progress and achieve their goals.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching a year 4 class at a Primary school in Harrow. I am thoroughly enjoying the class and helping them achieve their potential is at the heart of what I do. I have also taught a year 5 class and a year 4 class in a primary school in Leicester.

I have completed tutoring before and helped a young boy reach his goal of getting into a private school. I have also helped other young learners to improve their reading strategies, maths concepts and boost their confidence. I have delivered tutoring sessions in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and 11+ exams. I can also help children to prepare for their SATS examinations and being a current primary teacher enables me to know the national curriculum well. I hope I can help and support your child to achieve their maximum potential.

My other experience includes working in learning centers tutoring primary school children and being a volunteer at a school.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about children learning and believe the key is to start early so children can sustain their knowledge in order to help them with their future. I have high expectations of children and will support them achieve their goal. I strive to ensure lessons give children an experience which is memorable and engaging.

Personal Description:
Hi all,

I am a chemistry graduate with a fresh and wide knowledge of the subject. My strongest qualities are probably that I can explain science in plain language and I am genuinely interested to get you interested! We can start from the basics if needed and step by step working our way up to understand the underlying concepts of chemistry. I have a great amount of experience in writing coursework and assignments, I can teach you to research effectively and grab the details you need without getting lost in the huge amount of information you can find on the internet. I can give you hints on how to put essays and papers together if you got any issues with that. I enjoy when when my students get confidence, show interest and of course that leads to better grades eventually. It takes time and effort though, you have to work hard if you want to improve! I can effectively assist with biology, biochemistry as well.

Teaching Experience:

I teach since 2013 and find a great joy in it, because every student is different and there is always a challenge to find the best possible way to make them work for those results. There are different techniques and useful tips I can give how to remember more complex topics, but naturally you will have to take your time to read and practice as well if you'd like to make the most of it. I can help you to work through the sometimes complex and abstract ideas and concepts, they will help you to develop useful skills you don't even know of. It is impossible to remember everything and luckily this is not what they expect from you on exams. You need a good grasp of the subject , so you can solve seemingly complicated questions if you know the basics very well and are able to make associations. You need to develop a good sense of judgement and should be able to see the point in less straight forward questions as well. My ultimate goal is to help you getting to a stage where you will independently work without the need of much feedback and support.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very friendly and easy-going nature and I will try to make sure that students will feel comfortable during the lessons. I think that is particularly important, because they should not feel shy or awkward about asking the same thing several times in case they don't get it straight away. I am more than happy to go through over and over anything you have problems with. There is always a different way to explain it, just as everybody has a different mindset! Small details can make huge differences and better understanding will help to get the confidence the students need when they assessed at exams . I regularly check if my help is effective and the most suitable in the particular topic. I always take my time to prepare as well, to be ready to answer any question and I always make sure there are no blind spots. I believe in active learning, therefore we will solve questions most of the time instead of going through the book. Of course my personality or teaching style should not fit all, then I will advise to keep on searching until you find the right person you can learn from.

Personal Description:
Highly experienced tutor, currently completing my PhD in chemistry at Imperial College London.

With an enthusiastic approach to learning and a real passion for my subject I develop students into inquisitive, capable learners and consider mentoring students in a love of science to be an important goal.

I achieved the highest grade possible in all science and maths subjects during my school education and having completed my Masters in Chemistry at Oxford in 2011 I have also worked in various roles in industry and academia, allowing me to convey the real significance of science to the students who study with me.

A & A/S-Levels : 4As (2007)
GCSEs : 9A*s, 2As (2005)

Teaching Experience:

Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

I have over three years experience, teaching over 100 students from secondary up to undergraduate level. I am a professionally trained undergraduate tutor and laboratory demonstrator, recently awarded an Associate Fellowship of the HEA in recognition of my contribution to undergraduate learning and my continuing development as an educational practitioner.

As a result of my teaching programme at Imperial College, I was awarded a Student Academic Choice Award - chosen by the students - for excellence in chemistry tutoring and communication.

Alongside my direct tutoring experience I have also taken part in the assessment and development of teaching material in chemistry and in the interview process at Imperial College, allowing me to offer targeted advice for students who wish to excel. Having attended both Oxford and Imperial College I can offer highly relevant admissions advice for university entrance interviews at Oxbridge and London-based institutions.

Working with students from across the world, I have experience of tutoring students whose first language is not English and am familiar with dealing with any issues that arise from this.

Some reviews of my work:

"My teaching experience with Peter has been really positive, he really challenges me to achieve my best and I have particularly developed my critical thinking skills with him" (A-level student)

"Peter is really friendly and helpful, as an international student who has studied in several countries I can say his methods are very strong and he explains complicated topics very well" (A-level student)

"I struggled with several areas of my course before studying with Peter, but now things are so much easier! He can explain things in so many ways when I'm stuck, highly recommended" (GCSE student)

"Peter is one of the best tutors we have had and is always on time and prepared, he is obviously very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches" (Parent of GCSE student)

"My daughter had lessons with Peter for several months and her confidence in the subject increased hugely over this time, I would strongly recommend his services, the improved exam results speak for themselves" (Parent of A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

Having taught scientific subjects up to undergraduate level I have a keen understanding of the different learning styles of students and am able to adapt my teaching to suit the student.

Using various teaching methodologies to deepen understanding, wherever possible I like to employ additional techniques such as scientific software and interactive elements alongside theory in order to bring the subject to life.

Students who study with me are encouraged and supported in developing critical thinking skills, by analysing information more deeply, allowing them to become more efficient, resourceful learners in the future.

I have two main approaches for the students I teach:
For students struggling in a subject I aim to build up confidence in the area by ensuring lessons are relaxed and engaging rather than focused on specific topics. Once a student has become more comfortable in the subject, more targeted study can take place based on the syllabus.
For students who are competent in their subject but need additional support to excel, I take a more focused approach and work with the student on any weak points and advanced topics, supported by exam technique and practice questions.
In both cases I aim to broaden the knowledge of the student beyond specific subject guidelines, with the goal of developing a passion for their subject.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Description:
My name is Antonia and I am an actor and creative workshop leader based in Northampton. I have an acting degree and I will be studying a Masters in Acting at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in September 2017. I have skills in Shakespeare, clowning, mask work, Stanislavski Methodologies, Voice technique, devising, contemporary script work and various other performance based skills. I am have a Grade 8 in Musical Theatre singing. I am incredibly interested in characters and text and the best way to explore those.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2013, I have worked with The Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton in many of their youth theatre groups and I am now a Creative Projects Associate there. My roles include leading workshops for people of all ages and creating one off workshops for festivals. I have recently assistant directed on their large scale youth production of Oliver! and on their Christmas show for under 7's- Second Star to the Right. Alongside working for The Royal & Derngate, I also work at The Pauline Quirke Academy, Northampton teaching weekly skilled based classes and directing small and larger scale performances.
I have also worked with various companies leading after school drama clubs as well as one-to-one tuition in singing.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring will be bespoke to each individual, taking into account previous performance experience, age, the needs of the individual and the goal they are working towards.
I will adapt my sessions to suit the learning styles of the individual. My sessions will be fun and use memorable techniques to learn new skills.
I am also happy to teach audition technique and use tutoring time as a way to prepare for auditions. I will happily recommend monologues I think are appropriate. I am also able to look at teaching acting through song.
