Personal Description:
Hi, everyone,The academic year is now a term old and things are ticking along nicely for almost all my students of 2016-17. Sadly two have had to drop out of school/college studies because of personal issues which is sad, when the time is right, these two very bright individuals will come back to studying, I'm sure.

I am more busy than ever this year but do have perhaps one or two spaces for students keen to just improve or to transform themselves and their fortunes. However bad things seem, I can show you how make the best of your talents.

TWO EXAM PAPER NOTICES

A couple of examination paper notices.

1. I am now OCR trained for the new AS level source/essay paper. Obviously this has given me a clear insight into how it's marked and how students need to approach it to be successful.
2. Secondly, the ED Excel Y13 A2 sources & essay paper (three secondary sources): I worked with four students on this last year and achieved spectacular results (these pupils can be contacted; some won't be able to put referees up here because I found all 4 of them via word of mouth and the UK's other major tutoring site). I'm very happy to report that I worked hard and thought hard on refining my advice on the paper and it has clearly paid off handsomely. Do contact me for details; I can pass these on to you prior to your making a decision on whether to engage me (or not as the case may be). Naturally anyone re-taking the A2 paper in 2017 can benefit from this. The new EdExcel History exam has a similar paper so this year's cohort of Y13 students should be able to benefit too.

Note. Because I'm away for the next 3 weeks carrying out research in London and Reading for my PhD I will not be able to begin lessons this year until the last week of September.

Plus:

Important policy change! If your young one or you, the student, is/are one who is not prepared to be coached and trained as our Olympic athletes are - and by this I mean that the performer puts themselves in the hands of the coach and doesn't try to tell them how to do the job - then please do not get in touch: simply pass on to another tutor somewhere else on this site.

And now, The Pitch!

So, my name is Craig, a very dedicated one-to-one tutor of History, Politics and English. I offer an exceptionally high level of expertise as a history, politics (and English) teacher, teacher of essay writing, exam writing and exam taking. This is based on well over two decades of experience in schools and in homes. Though I have been teaching a long time, I am continually striving to improve the quality of my work, constantly analyzing the effect of my advice on performance and trying to perfect the art and craft of the job.

When not tutoring, most of my time is spent working (hard!) as a student too! I am just about to begin the third year of my PhD, supervised by Professor Tony Collins of De Montfort University, Leicester, undertaking research in 20th century British history. (Rugby fans might like to note at this point that Tony is the number one rugby historian - of all codes - in the world. All his books are very well worth reading.)


I am exceptionally well qualified. I have an MA (2011) in History and am now two years into my doctoral studies. I have written fiction and non-fiction. I have had experience in being an A level marker with an exam board. I have had long experience in teaching and preparing whole History & Govnt. & Politics year groups for A level, producing outstanding results.

I take on all types of students. Some need a lot of training, some need to be dragged away from a collision-course with failure, some need finessing, some need waking up, some need inspiring, some need a boost in confidence; some need more intellectual stimulation; all can and do improve their writing.

My chief strengths are: 1. I know how to teach students to write. 2. I know how to prepare them for exams. 3. My methods are clear, simple and work beautifully. 4. I care very much about the progression of my students. 5. I treat my work with them with the utmost seriousness. 6. But I'm a human being with a sense of humour! 7. I am very, very experienced. 8. As a parent of three children who have gone through the school and university experience, I understand what both the student and the parent is going through.

I am very happy to work with students online. I have found it to work extremely well.

More on my current research project...
I am currently working on doctoral research into the BBC, sport and social class, 1922-64, with Tony Collins at De Montfort University, Leicester. He is the director of DMU's International Centre for Sports History & Culture, a department of world renown, and the leading British powerhouse of sports history. I am very proud to be working with Tony and within the department. Undergrad students should note that I am working under one of the world's best historians, a 3-time winner of the prestigious Aberdare Prize for Sports Books.

Becoming a student again, beginning with the masters degree course at De Montfort University in 2010 has really helped my teaching. As well as keeping on top of developments in academic history. I am much better read! I know more! It has also taken me right back in touch with what it feels like to be a student and all that follows from that. It has also enabled me to extend my tutoring potential to undergraduates and masters students.

I'm happily married with 3 children fully grown (it's only their father who's lagging behind).

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 24 years in secondary schools in Bromley, Kent and Derbyshire where I now live. History was my specialism but I was head of Politics for a number of years in the last part of my school career. I also taught Geography, Economics, English and R.E.

Since beginning to tutor students, I have taught history, Government & Politics and English (including basic literacy skills to a young person with dyslexia). Courses taught have mostly been those at GCSE and A level.

I have taught a wide range of topics within French, German, Russian and British history. The list includes the usual suspects: causes of World Wars 1 and 2, Hitler and the Third Reich, the French Revolution (and its causes) and Napoleon; also Tsarist Russia, the Russian revolution and Stalin as well as the European Reformation, France in the 16th century, Louis XIV and aspects of Irish and Chinese history and 19th century France, plus 20th century USA. politics (Boom and Bust, New Deal and Post-War Boom, and also the Witchcraft Persecution in Europe (1550-1680).

In terms of British history I am very much up to speed with all aspects of its 20th century political history (high politics, parties, electoral history, social history & economic history, right through to the 21st century, in fact); I have also taught most aspects of 19th history, social, economic and political. For the last decade and a half of my school-teaching career I taught the A level course in 16th and 17th century - The Tudors, James I, Charles I, Causes of the English Civil War, Charles II, James II & the Glorious Revolution, the reigns of William & Mary & Queen Anne.

I have recently added 19th century British politics (Reform Bill through Peel, Palmerston, Disraeli and Gladstone to Salisbury) and Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe to my "roster" of topics.

Since becoming a PhD student my expertise level in terms of content knowledge has leaped forward in 20th century British history. However...

...it isn't the historical content of the course that matters so much: technique is the key; know-how; how to write; how to take an exam; how to prepare for the whole exam period; how to approach the whole thing mentally, psychologically; how to be the best you can be; how to be successful - end of story!

I have worked with students on exam preparation and revision, coursework planning and execution and essay writing techniques. It is here that the battle to improve and to reach a fulfillment of potential, often with the reward of high grades, is usually won.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't tinker around the margins of issues. I give students something all those who come for help require: a method to use to dispose of the problems posed by the issue of writing that dreaded thing: the essay! Not a tinkering round the edges of the thing, a tip here, a bit of advice there, but a comprehensive yet simple and absolutely clear set of actions and principles through which the student can fulfill their potential: show the examiner what they know and understand of the topic.

Following on from the above, my approach to tutoring begins and ends with the drive to be successful. If I did not unfailingly improve students, help them to achieve the grades they want and need I would not be writing this.

In between comes what we might describe as philosophy and methods. It's hard to write about methods without immediately mentioning what I suppose might be my strongest "offer" (I don't much like that word but there, I've used it). As a schoolteacher I developed a unique but simple method of essay planning and writing that achieved stunning results. So successful has it been over 20 years that I am astonished that no one else seems to have found it. But in my experience up to February 2013 no teacher has. Essay writing is still something that many, many students find difficult and confusing. It really does not need to be this way.

Obviously content issues are hugely important and here I rely on my communication skills which have yet to let me down! These, naturally, go hand in hand with a knowledge of British and European history across a variety of years which has grown over recent years particularly through my MA studies, my PhD research and through working with students on a range of historical periods, topics and people. I find myself to be adaptable to different types of students. I am able to adapt my language and my technique to fit the situation. I am also somewhat stubborn in that I never give up on solving a problem. If we have to go over time, so be it!

Finally, some more of my personal philosophies of teaching. I believe that students generally do not achieve their potential. With each student I aim to take them to standards (and grades) that they did not think were possible. Without exception I push, push and push until we run out of time as we inevitably do. I also do not believe in lost causes. Much can be achieved in a very short space of time. I have seen this happen over and over again.

There is much more to be said but that, I hope, will do for now.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying Mathematics at Aberdeen University, and looking to make a little bit of extra money to help support my studies. I am very enthusiastic about maths and physics, something which I try to pass on to my tutees. I am looking to tutor standard grade, higher and advanced higher maths and physics and also advanced higher applied maths (mechanics) which is not listed on the site. I would also be willing to teach the English equivalents: GCSE, AS, and A level maths, further maths and physics, should anyone be interested. I am willing to travel or to tutor from my own flat (Old Aberdeen, near the University), whichever is more convenient for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2008. Although I could not list it on this site I would also be very interested in tutoring advanced higher mechanics. This is a subject which I actually taught myself in sixth year because my school was unable to provide the course. Having taught myself from a textbook I achieved an A grade in the exam. The skills I gained from this include the ability to set appropriate work, to decide which areas of the course need emphasis for the exam, and the ability to summarise the key outcomes from each topic.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to carefully go over what has been covered in class in order to find any areas of difficulty and then to spend time working through these areas and to build understanding and confidence to the point where the tutee can answer questions on the topic with ease. Moving through the coursework in this way ensures no gaps in course knowledge. In the lead up to exams and tests most of the time would be spent on revision and past papers, stopping to go over again any uncertainties. I would usually obtain from SQA the course specifications which detail each learning outcome, that is, what the student is expected to know. This gives me the ability to check through, systematically, every area which the tutee could possibly be tested on and thus ensuring that the tutee is fully prepared for the exams.

Teaching is a great passion of mine that I am very enthusiastic about.
I am a graduate of Northumbria University and London Guildhall University. Having completed a LLB in Law and a BSc in Psychology and Law, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I have decided to teach and have been tutoring for about 10 years.
Currently, I specialise in Law and Psychology, and thoroughly enjoy providing a high standard of quality of teaching to my students. I ensure that the time spent with me is dedicated to achieving what the student requires most.
As a highly qualified and talented individual I enjoy sharing my skills, methods and techniques with my students ,aspiring to ensure that they excel in their chosen course/ subjects.
My students have been able to achieve not just higher grades but also a better understanding of their subjects. They have also been able to gain further transferable skills.

Personal Description:
At Birmingham University I obtained a first class degree in mathematics and went on to qualify as a chartered accountant. It was my desire to learn Spanish that originally made me move to Andalucía in the south of Spain ten years ago. With full immersion in the language, I soon became fluent in Spanish. In order to be with my wife, I moved to Guatemala, where I took the opportunity for a career change in the local village school. I realised that teaching gave a much higher job satisfaction and was much more suited to my lively, upbeat manner.

Teaching Experience:

After some teacher training I found a job as a maths teacher in an international bilingual school called Atitlán Multicultural Academy. I went on to become the headmaster of the school for three years. Monitoring and assessing other teachers gave me a great insight into different styles. After the birth of my daughter I wanted to travel less so I started giving Spanish and maths lessons via skype. This video conferencing tool means I can give classes face to face to students in the comfort of their own home.

Tutoring Approach:

My Spanish lesson plans are based completely on the student's objectives and learning styles. Most of my present students want to learn conversational Spanish, so I concentrate more on the oral skills of speaking and listening. However, I always try and cover the grammatical points in a clear systematic way, ensuring the student does not get demotivated with the more technical side. The most important for me is that learning is fun, and clear advancements are made in each class.

The maths lessons deal with the specific problems of the students to aid understanding in areas that they did not fully pick up in school. I specialise in exam preparation for GCSE, AS level and A level. The students are made to analyse the question, break down the requirements and give structure to their answers whilst making notes on the steps which they found difficult.

Personal Description:
I am a native English/Spanish speaker, an American and Spanish dual national, born and raised in Europe. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, going to the cinema or relaxing with a nice cup of coffee and a good book.

Teaching Experience:

I have dedicated the last 10 years of my career to foreign language teaching in the USA, Spain and the UK. I have taught in state and private schools with primary and secondary students as well as adults. I have also taught employees of a range of companies in the north of Spain.

FAQs

Which subject(s) do you teach?
I specialise in the humanities, the social sciences, and relevant creative industries up to (and inclusive of) degree level; I'm equipped to teach an array of closely-related topics, at various levels, by virtue of my diverse (academic and professional) background(s).

Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a (comb. hons.) bachelor's degree-English with Creative Writing, a master's degree-Professional Writing, and currently find myself undertaking a PhD by research.

How much do you charge?
My rate is £20 per hour, irrespective of subject, or level (there is no charge for the first/introductory session).

NB: my service is of no lesser quality than that of tutors whom request in excess of £60 per hour; I simply fail to see a correlation between entitlements to opportunity and financial means.

Where do you teach?
Primarily, I teach from home; however, I also offer online tuition (for those who would otherwise have to travel long distances, or are unable to travel).

When are you available?
I tutor full-time, alongside part-time postgraduate study. My hours are: 09:00-19:00, Mon-Sun.

I currently only have one space between Dec '16-Jan '17, but this may increase to two between Jan-Jun '17.

Which ages and levels do you teach?
KS1 to Level 6 (primary-degree).

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I'm an enhanced DBS certificate holder, and member of the DBS Update Service.

Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I'm a full member of The Tutors' Association.

Tell me about some of your current students.
Many of my current AS/A2 students are preparing for the January 2017 mock examinations-Psychology, English Literature, Sociology, Philosophy, or a combination thereof.

Teaching Experience:

What kind of experience do you have?
Aside from my experience as an academic tutor (which exceeds four years), I've also served NHS psychiatric services, as a negotiations/conflict resolution tutor: this role involved the design and implementation of dialectical interventions-chiefly, those concerned with emotionally complex situations (e.g. violence and aggression, high-stakes contexts, etc.).

Tutoring Approach:

Describe your tutoring approach.
I'm an experienced tutor, with a conversational approach; one that blends constructivist, cognitivist, and experiential learning theories-i.e., framing new concepts within a student's existing knowledge base, exploring (and adapting to) each student's unique learning style(s), turning theoretical concepts to practical problems, and encouraging self-directed learning (where appropriate).

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can facilitate online tuition via Skype, or a similar application. I involve a range of digital technologies (e.g. to annotate scanned written work, design original resources, etc.), with ongoing email correspondence and access to shared cloud storage serving complimentary functions.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and dedicated Montessori teacher, passionate about contributing to the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of young children. I am enthusiastic, creative and caring, well versed in learning theories and practices and always seeking to provide exceptional quality teaching and care.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked for a number of years at the Primary School level teaching English and Life Skills. My experience includes special needs children (Down's Syndrome and Autism).

Tutoring Approach:

I use a 1-1 approach where I try to deliver lessons that are tailored for the individual child. I tap into their interests so I can use these in the materials and learning environment. I believe every child has the ability to learn given the correct environment and resources.
I am happy to visit a pupil's home for lessons or teach via Skype.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Jonathan and I recently graduated from the University of Exeter studying Business and Management. I speak 4 languages, am passionate about maths and business, and have extensive experience in 1 on 1 tutoring!

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of tutoring experience and currently have a number of clients whom I teach Maths (Primary - GCSE) or German (Secondary - A-Level). Furthermore, I help run weekly GCSE revision sessions at a local school.

I have also run sessions for adult learners wanting to improve their German skills. In these sessions - which were often over skype - I was able to knowledge of the German language and culture to prepare tutees for upcoming exams, job interviews, or travels.

My experience, my academic background, and my teaching style make me an ideal tutor for anyone who wants to excel!

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring focuses on two main areas. Firstly, I aim to build up confidence. From experience, many students have the capacity to excel, but low confidence in often over-crowded or intimidating classroom environment limits their learning potential. That is why my aim is to identify the tutee's strengths and prove to them that they already know a lot more than they think!
Secondly, I identify the key areas of improvement and help develop these in structured lessons. Giving tutees the possibility to ask questions in an informal environment and getting students to explain concepts back to the tutor are both great methods to develop the areas of improvement.

My tailored sessions help find your strengths, improve your weaknesses, and ultimately succeed!
