Personal Description:
I graduated in 2011 with a degree in Classics at Cambridge University as a mature student. I am passionate about Latin and Greek and Ancient History. I have also attended a courses in New Testament Greek at the University of Cambridge's Institute of Continuing Learning.

I learned Latin and Greek at school up to O' Level but a few years ago I decided that I could no longer do without any Classics in my life and began to study at degree level, first with the Open University where I gained a Dip Class and subsequently at Cambridge University for a B.A and M.A.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous career one of my positions was as a Staff Training Officer with the Department of Employment where I trained adults in job related skills. Most recently I managed a counselling and advice centre in the voluntary sector where my counselling role involved working with young people.


I have current students studying Latin and Ancient Greek.



I ALSO OFFER PREPARATION FOR OXBRIDGE INTERVIEWS.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is student-centred, focusing on what the student's needs are whilst at the same time having a clear goal in mind. Latin and Greek inevitably involve learning grammar but I like to get students to read adapted texts as soon as possible so that there is a real sense of achievement.

If students are already learning Latin and Greek in another context my aim is to make sure that I support that learning. I aim to ensure that they have a good understanding of what they are learning at school (or elsewhere) by consolidating grammar and providing lots of practice which builds confidence.

Personal Description:
I have a passion for Science and hope to go into laboratory research. I recently finished my Masters by Research in Biological Sciences at the University of Manchester, graduating with Distinction.
In June 2015 I finished my BSc in Biology from Imperial College London with First Class Honours. . My A level grades were A* A A in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics (respectively). I am committed and enthusiastic in everything I do and I love new experiences and challenges.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years and have had over a dozen students, ranging from 4-28 years of age.

In addition to my professional tutoring:
-In the lab I teach new practical techniques and knowledge to students and my peers
-I am training to become an assistant instructor in Women's Self Defence with the charity that I do martial arts with
-I have a younger sister whom I have helped with academia since she was a child, improving her knowledge and confidence.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is something that I thoroughly enjoy. It makes me feel like I have made a difference when I am able to help someone better understand and apply something that, up until then, teachers or peers have failed to do.
A large part of my role as a tutor, particularly with younger students, is to improve their self-confidence, I give them additional knowledge, confidence to apply and convey it and confidence to ask questions.

I believe that the path to exam success involves three things:
-Thorough knowledge of subject material
-Exam technique (what to write/say to get the marks)
-On-the-day performance

I feel that my job as a tutor is to assess these points in my students and to help them with whatever stage they require to boost their performance.

YOUNGER STUDENTS: when tutoring children I find that it is important to continuously change the activity or topic every 5-10 minutes so that the student is engaged and gets the most out of the lessons. I have learned many of the techniques for tutoring children during my training and experience as a Young Scout Leader.
In my lessons I play games based on the material and use tools such as white boards, the feedback I receive is that my students really enjoy and look forward to our lessons.

SECONDARY LEVEL & OLDER STUDENTS: I feel it is important for my students to understand how the topic they are learning fits into the wider picture. Often I find that the reason my students struggled with some subject areas is that they were not taught the broader concepts or knowledge was assumed, this is particularly common with Chemistry. I aim to fill this gap so that students learn and understand the syllabus learning points as opposed to just memorizing them.
With Maths I go through many practice questions with my students. I set a question and we will work on it together or independently, then I will give the answer and show my working. My students find it very helpful that I work alongside them and provide them with a full solution including method, as opposed to just an answer.

REFERENCES:
"My son really enjoyed his time with Melanie and definitely learned so much more than he did at school. I Would highly recommend"

"I would highly recommend Melanie. My daughter was really struggling with preparing for the transfer test and Melanie really boosted her confidence and gave her all the necessary tools to succeed."

"I would most definitely recommend Melanie as a tutor. She gave great advice on transfer test preparation and recommended valuable English & Maths materials. My daughter really enjoyed attending weekly sessions with Melanie. She is now an avid reader and has recently been graded a reading level well above her age group."

"Melanie provided excellent tutoring and advice for my son during his preparation for the Transfer exams. Her ability to engage and challenge him led in no small way to his ultimate success in gaining a result that allowed him to choose the school he wished to go to. I have no reservation in recommending Melanie and appreciate what she did for my son and the others whom she tutored."

"My son really enjoyed his time with Melanie. He progressed so much more than just being taught in school alone."

I look forward to welcoming you into my classes!

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with a first class honours degree in Natural Sciences. I achieved top grades in my GCSE and A-levels, as well as winning various national academic prizes such as the National Institute of Medical Research Human Biology Essay Competition. I am currently studying graduate-entry medicine at Kings College London.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 200 hours of tutoring experience from 11+ to GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

Although my main aim in tutoring is to help students achieve top grades in their exams, I also like to bring in relevant information from my degree and current medical studies. I feel that this helps to contextualise the subject, making it more relevant and interesting.

From previous experience and feedback, I feel that I am an approachable and friendly tutor with the aim of maximising the potential of all my students.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different when it comes to learning. Some students enjoy 1 to 1 and some students love group learning. My approach is to create an individual style for each student and work with you to meet your learning needs.

The key to any success is READING and then having the opportunity to discuss the subject in detail to analyse the the debate.

In addition to this, it is important to develop skills and understanding of your subject area so that you are aware of the key areas of policy and theory and how theory is applied to policy in the real world.

Personal Description:
I find Maths exciting and want to impart my knowledge on the subject to the learners in a way so as to make it interesting. I have worked in a customer facing environment for nearly 20 years and use my problem-solving and interpersonal skills to make Maths fun for the students. In my current role as an Employability Adviser in a Further Education college, I work with the 14-19 year-old students to improve upon their employability skills, including numeracy and literacy.

Teaching Experience:

I am into teaching over the past three years and over this period I am working directly with the 14-19 year-old students to make them employable by improving their skills, including in numeracy and literacy. I try to make the subject of study relevant and contextualise it with the real life situation.

Tutoring Approach:

An important feature of my teaching is the ability to change the style of teaching according to the needs and ability of the students.
I provide practical examples to explain concepts in Maths.
I help my students towards obtaining knowledge beside imparting them with the practical tips of problem solving.
I am patient and a strong believer of the fact that building a sense of trust and respect help students overcome the fear of knowing the unknown.

Personal Description:
I am a mature, bubbly and reliable individual; I have a passion for learning and thrive in passing my knowledge onto others. I am currently completing my Biology MPhil (Master of Philosophy) degree at Newcastle University; I am also a keen musician and have previously worked as a Music Teacher. I possess experience of successfully tutoring pupils of all ages; I take a flexible approach to teaching by playing to pupils' strengths, improving their weaknesses and exploring the best, most enjoyable way of getting new and difficult material across.

Teaching Experience:

Past Experience:
~Biology Demonstrator (Newcastle University)
~Biology Tutor (Self-Employed)
~Junior Music Teacher (Peterhead Music and Rock School)

I have extensive experience of working in educational settings. I was employed as a Junior Music Teacher at Peterhead Music and Rock school. There I taught from the ages of 4 - 40 keyboard, piano and musical theory. I learnt to adopt a patient, confident and professional approach and to build an instant rapport with pupils of all ages. I adapted my teaching style for the needs of each pupil and individually planned all lessons within good time. I prepped many of my students for exams (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, ABRSM, accredited), for example one student achieved a Distinction Grade 1 piano whilst another obtained a Merit for her Grade 5 theory. I carried this experience on to my role as a Biology Tutor where I followed the curriculum and successfully aided a pupil in improving their grade from a D to a B.

While completing my Masters degree I worked at Newcastle University as a School of Biology Demonstrator. Through the role of Demonstrator I have gained valuable experience of helping to run undergraduate laboratory practical classes alongside experienced technicians and academics. My main tasks were to supervise the students; I would ensure they adhered to safety protocols and promote their understanding of the practical by assisting with any queries they may have. I developed a good rapport with both staff and students by adopting a friendly, hard-working and patient approach.

Tutoring Approach:

As mentioned in sections above; I am a very patient and friendly individual. My approach to tutoring depends entirely on the student I am working with. I very much like to tailor sessions to every individuals' needs and abilities, ensuring that the learner dictates the pace we work at.

I was born in South Yorkshire. I grew up in Rotherham before gaining a English/History degree in Manchester followed by a PGCE at Sheffield Hallam University.
I am married and have a 10 year old stepson. My interests include reading, music, education, sport, keep fit, current affairs and walking.
I moved down to Devon in September 2016 and am loving the lifestyle down here.
I love my job and feel that my enthusiasm stimulates and encourages my students to excel.

Teaching Experience:

Having gained my PGCE I taught for 9 years in medium-sized village school in a picturesque part of Derbyshire. I very much enjoyed my time there and gained some invaluable experience. I then took up a middle-management post at a suburban school in Doncaster. This was a different experience which enabled me to work with children of many different abilities allowing me develop efficient and successful teaching strategies.
I have a wide range of experience in teaching children from year one to year six. Over the last two years I have done supply work in numerous schools in South Yorkshire allowing me to remain up to date with current trends in teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a friendly, encouraging approach to tuition. I aim to put children at their ease, developing confidence, but like to cover as much ground as possible in the time we have. I ensure students (and their parents) receive clear feedback alongside targets for future development and set additional work to complete between lessons where appropriate. I have a flexible approach to tutoring based on the requirements of the student/parent. Lessons focus on building confidence, consolidating and developing concepts or focusing on specific areas requiring support.
Children learn in different ways and I always endeavour to teach in a manner that complements the student's preferred learning style. I monitor progress using formal and informal methods of assessment and encourage children to use self assessment.
Students can learn by either visiting my home, me visiting them or at a distance using Skype.
