Personal Description:
I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic tutor. I come from an academic background (Molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics) rather than teaching and as such, have a thorough and extensive knowledge of the subjects I tutor in. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with others and I'm also good at explaining some of the more complex elements of biology. I am also registered as a STEM ambassador and visit local schools to share my passion for Biology and Science.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, swimming, playing tennis, walking and watching Hull City!

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored >60 students, mainly in biology at A-level/Highers, but also separate sciences and general science at GCSE level. My students have achieved excellent results; with most improving by at least two grades. Recent successes include an AS student moving from grade E up to a A and an A2 student moving up from an unclassified (U) grade up to a B. I am more than happy to take on students of all abilities. I have also taught at University level (2nd year biochemistry) and have mentored undergraduate and postgraduate students. I have some experience tutoring students with mild specific learning difficulties (ADHD, Asperger's).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student as all have different needs and learning styles. For GCSE/A-level tuition, I usually concentrate on exam practice, with in-depth topic study for the more problematic subjects. I also use multimedia aids to help students visualise biological/chemical processes where appropriate and I have created powerpoint files covering almost all AS and A2 Biology topics.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from a Masters degree in drama at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama having graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English. Teaching has always been a great passion of mine and one to one tutoring is the most rewarding, in its opportunity for directness and specificity.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for three years and have also tutored drama in schools over the last few years. I have also had teaching experience abroad, teaching English as a foreign language in Indian and African schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to make learning fun whilst also ensuring fast and effective progress. I ensure that I get to know my students' ways of learning as soon as possible in order to tailor my tutoring style to their individual needs. I hope to be able to offer a way of learning different but utterly beneficial to the current exam syllabuses which can often seem fairly daunting and rigid on first impression.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Kevin, a friendly and approachable full time Maths tutor with a patient and empathetic attitude.

I studied Maths at Uni after gaining 11 A grades at GCSE and 4 A grades at A level (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry) and since then I`ve worked as both an Accountant and an Actuary.

I`m an intelligent guy with the ability to break things down to their simplest forms, but am also patient and a good listener with the ability to understand the way someone else thinks about a problem. I think its these qualities that combine to make me a natural tutor and time after time I`ve experienced that when people have a problem understanding something, its been me they`ve come to.

One of my recent reviews:

"My son was struggling with his AS level maths course having failed to keep up with the pace of new topics
in the Autumn term of 2012. Relatively late in the day before the exams in May 2013 we were fortunate
enough to get Kevin to help him and there was a complete transformation of his confidence and approach
to maths. Before Kevin's intervention my son had achieved U, D and E grades in various mock exams but
in test papers before the actual exams he was getting results right at the top of the grade spectrum. I cannot
recommend Kevin too highly for his technical expertise in the subject or for his organised and sympathetic
teaching approach which was essential in my son's case. Kevin brought my son order and confidence out of
confusion and despair"

Teaching Experience:

I`m experienced and happy to tutor at any level KS3, GCSE, AS and A-level, QTS Numeracy exam (in fact, adult learners in any field needing a maths/numeracy refresher).

I also tutor for business school and foundation year maths exams eg GMAT, NCUK IFY etc. (Please ask for rates for these exams).

Tutoring Approach:

Let me know what your aim is - whether it be to understand that topic/module you 'just cant get!', or to go through past papers, or to learn a whole course from start to finish, and between us we can agree the best approach for you, and prepare a plan of action to ensure you achieve your goals.

Personal Description:

However i am keen to teach other students who are interested in further developing there skills in Maths and Physics as well as helping those who struggle with the subjects to become better.

Tutoring Approach:

Personal Description:
I am a Masters Student studying Oil and Gas Engineering in the University of Aberdeen, UK. I was the best Mathematics student during my Primary and Secondary School education (in virtually every class), so i was among the students selected from the mathematics club to represent the school in various Mathematics competitions, of which i won some prizes. I am a calm individual who understands that everyone is unique with different speed of comprehension. I enjoy teaching Mathematics to all levels, especially the young minds because I believe practicing, solving and understanding mathematics sharpens the brain in understanding and quickly solving other problems in life as they grow. I have over two years of experience; a year in teaching secondary school students in both a government and private school, and over a year experience in teaching a few 1st year undergraduate students. I also believe that mathematics can be understood by everyone, once placed in the right environment (quiet, fun, musical,etc) . My first task would be to find out which suits the student best.

Teaching Experience:

1) Over 1 year tutoring a few 1st year Undergraduate students
2) 1 year full-time teacher in both a private and a government secondary school

Tutoring Approach:

My initial approach would be; identifying the best environment (quiet, fun,etc) suitable for the particular individual, then comprehending the individual's speed or rate of understanding. I will pick up from this point and build up the individual's confidence by explaining the basics of approaching each question while solving as many questions as possible. In this way, the student would be able to tackle or attempt similar questions at his/her level.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of German and fluent in English and French. I moved to Cambridge in 2014. I enjoy sport, travelling and cooking.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and highly motivated language teacher and I have been teaching German, English and French in Swiss schools for the last ten years. Since moving to Cambridge, I have worked at a state school teaching French year 7 up to year 11, as a private tutor and a supply teacher. I am keen to share my passion for languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I always look for the most appropriate teaching method to keep my students stimulated and motivated. I use songs, games, visualisations and multimedia to help simplify complex issues, often create my own supplementary course material and regularly revise topics to consolidate learning. Teaching English, German and French as foreign languages has enabled me to appreciate the challenges students face understanding the different grammar structures.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced visual Artist and Photographer currently working and exhibiting within Liverpool. I have an art studio where I work as an professional artist and I am very involved within the Liverpool Art Scene. As a working artist I also have a lot of practical and helpful advice that I am willing to share with any aspiring artist!

Independently I have worked as an artist on a variety of projects, workshops and exhibitions. I have also worked within school and university art departments.

I have studied within the arts for six years. I have a First Class Fine Art Degree (Hons) and have also studied Art Foundation and Photography BETC.

I am a naturally friendly and approachable person. I have worked with people with a wide variety of artistic abilities and I understand that everyone learns differently. I am a very flexible tutor and I will always develop sessions that suite each student individually.

With younger students I am willing to travel to your home, with older students I can teach classes within my art studio.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have and I hope to hear from you soon!

Teaching Experience:

As an artist I think it is important to pass on the skills I have and help others to develop artistically.

I have previously have ran art workshops and worked in schools/universities. Through this I have taught art to a variety of age ranges and abilities. Within previous classes I have taught a large range of style and techniques.

I have previously set up and ran art workshops under the name 'Free Their Minds'. These workshops were developed to help children from deprived areas to have access to art classes. The classes aimed at building up the children's artistic skills, knowledge and confidence.

(References available on request)

Tutoring Approach:

All my lessons are tailor made to each individual student. The classes vary depending on ability and interests. Each lesson is designed to build the foundation skills and knowledge that all artists/photographers need.

I strongly believe that practical art and art history should be taught together as it creates a stronger understanding of the subject.
I make sure all lessons are a combination of art historical context and artistic skill building. I encourage students to build creative thinking, problem solving and traditional artistic skills.

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm a fully qualified, Cambridge educated teacher, specialising in English, History, Psychology & Politics. I am a trained English & History teacher & my degree background in Social & Political Sciences enables me to tutor in Politics & Psychology, alongside my classroom teaching and tutoring experience in these areas. I pride myself on being a fully-qualified teacher who is passionate about learning, transferring my skills and sharing my passion and love for my subjects with others. It is not everyone who is simply good at a subject or who has an impressive qualification in that discipline, who can actually teach it. Teaching itself is an art and a skill and I am proud to be able to use my personal success, pedagogical training and ability to support and inspire students.

I enjoy what I do and I love inspiring and encouraging my students to perform well and to maximise their potential. I have a high success rate and strong track record with my students & I currently teach up to A-level.

My own academic background includes A-level English (for which I obtained one of the top five marks across the country for my cohort of 2004), a 2:1 Bachelors degree from Cambridge University before completing my teacher training on the competitive 'Teach First' fast-track teacher training programme through which, I became a fully qualified English teacher.

I am now a full-time tutor whilst I establish my own business but in my most recent, long-term teaching role (3 1/2 years, full-time up to Dec 2016), I taught both English & history to GCSE level alongside 'Government & Politics' to A-level. I am also confident in the tutoring of Psychology, having studied Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) as part of my Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining an A grade at A-level, alongside private tuition success in this area.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, I look forward to working with you...! : )

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years' teaching experience as an English teacher, four years' experience teaching GCSE history & A-level Government & Politics and two years' experience tutoring A-level Psychology (which I studied as part of Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining a 2.1 and an A grade - full marks, at A-level).

I have taught, in full-time positions at high performing secondary schools across teaching English, history & politics full-time and serving as Head of Department in previous roles.

My previous experience also includes two-years of coordinating the whole-school's English & literacy programme for a secondary school in south London. This role included me ensuring that key facets and skills related to English, literacy and academic writing were embedded across the curriculum within each department, across the school (no easy feat!). I have also ran and coordinated English booster sessions for KS3 and GCSE retake students, helping struggling students at C/D borderline or lower achieve their English Language & Literature GCSE grades.

I have a strong track record of success with students, on average achieving 80 - 90% success rate with classes, with private tutoring students commonly improving by *at least* one grade or more. One of my proudest achievements was with a GCSE student who improved from an E grade to a B grade within seven months of tutoring and an A-level student, improving from a C grade at the end of AS to an A* by the end of A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to be rigorous and professional in my approach and fully believe that marking and assessment are key to success, so students must expect homework each session (for which parental support is essential) and I will spend time marking and giving detailed assessment feedback of student work, including marking tutorials with students so they can clearly see where and how they need to improve.

Whilst, I do have quite a driven approach, I am very personable and get a buzz out of making lessons fun, relevant and engaging with a focus on skills and application, as opposed to pure knowledge. I will often use reading materials and stimuli linked to the student's own personal interests, alongside any set texts needed for English literature, as teaching resources for my lessons so that students can build on their skills, whilst using material that motivates them. Furthermore, I apply this same approach to tutoring in history, politics and psychology, focusing on current affairs and contemporary developments in each subject to make the content interesting and relevant.

As a former literacy coordinator, I am also aware that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are some of the main hindrances to students' success across all subjects and year groups (adults included!), so I put GREAT emphasis on this in ALL my subjects.

On a whole, it is important to me to teach students not only to pass their exams but to actually help them develop the reading, writing, critical thinking and analysis skills that will help them for life. This is the goal I have for my students and for myself.
