Personal Description:
I am a doctor in Social Anthropology with an interest in education, philosophy, politics, religion, science, culture, health and illness. I gained my PhD in Medical Anthropology about three years ago from the University of Edinburgh, where I have also taught undergraduate students. I have since then worked as a researcher, firstly as a consultant for international organisations on projects on chronic malnutrition in developing countries and most recently as a post-doctoral researcher and also academic teacher for the University of Oxford. I worked in both department of Primary Health Care and Social Anthropology. I currently live in Wokingham and I am planning to move to Guernsey with my husband at the beginning of December.

Teaching Experience:

I always used to help my school classmates with their homework and exams, especially those with learning difficulties. During my final year at university I started giving Italian private lessons to help me financially and I really enjoyed the experience. During my doctorate degree I had the opportunity to teach undergraduate students and also attend teaching training courses to improve my teaching skills. During the final year I started tutoring A level students in Spanish, Psychology and Sociology and they all passed their exams with very high marks. I also supported MSc and PhD students with their thesis both in Psychology and Marketing. During my last post at the University of Oxford I had the opportunity again to teach undergraduate students and attended a 'Developing Learning and Teaching programme' in order to qualify as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very much based on bringing forth the full potential of the student. In essence is based on finding the right balance between structure and meeting the personal needs of the student. Thus, giving the right importance to knowledge but, at the same time, also to raising the student's confidence and interest on the subject.

Personal Description:
I have a very high level of Mathematical/Accounting/Business/Economic understanding and very good explanation of the subject areas I teach. I am from a Banking and Finance background and enthusiastically share the knowledge I have gained over the years.

I am a passionate person hoping to steer students towards the level they desire.

Teaching Experience:

I teach Primary up to University level students whom have a thirst for knowledge. I have been teaching for a few years and have seen students excel from a predicted fail to the highest possible grade.

I provide one-to-one tuition and also give lessons in groups in which the prices are negotiable.

I get the best out of students and allow them to embrace the topic areas they are weakest and help them develop their strengths in a way that is enjoyable and focused at the same time.

With my services you will be receiving:
-High level teaching for optimal enhancement in Mathematical/Economic/Business/Accounting ability
-Highly Structured lessons
-Provision of Past Paper including Mock Exams (when applicable)
-Student Evaluation sheets after every lesson
-Extra Printing Resources
-Diagnostics Test every 30-60 days
-Advice with academic and career choices

Tutoring Approach:

I use different techniques to enhance and enjoy learning. By adapting my teaching style towards the personality's of my students, I believe this helps students reach a higher level of knowledge and success. The approach to teaching used is steered using positive reinforcement.

I am efficienct and practical in explaining problems and solutions due to time restrictions. Using a diverse range of structure and use of resources, the student will achieve a better grade than when they first started.

Personal Description:
A highly energetic and enthusiastic individual, specializing in teaching Biology,Chemistry,Physics, Mathematics and IELTs.I am a friendly person and a professional tutor. By qualification, I am a Doctor of Pharmacy and also hold an M Phil degree in Pharmaceutics. i have also got an overall score of 8 bands in IELTs which demonstrates my strong communication skills. My tutoring experience has made me patient and analytical, so, I always adapt the most suitable teaching approach which is individualized based on a student`s personality, mental caliber and his attitude towards learning. In addition to this, I have myself got distinctions throughout my academic career.

What makes me passionate about teaching is the fact that I have always been rejoiced by the thought of making a positive contribution to other people`s lives, and teaching young students, by far, is the most effective way of doing so. I am deeply inspired by my primary school math teacher whose incredible teaching skills transformed me into a bright and hardworking student from a very mediocre and average one. It was the time when I realized that incorporating social skills successfully into the routine methods of teaching can make learning far more interesting and easy.

I customize my teaching style according to the learning needs and mental caliber of the student. Generally, I start a new lesson by giving the student a detailed concept of the scientific topic. Later on, I elaborate the general and specific details of the topic with the help of examples. Afterwards, I put forth similar problems in front of the student to solve by himself, in order to assess his understanding of the topic. I also share with my students all the possible questions and different forms of a question that they might come across in the examination out of a selected topic. Moreover, I also give them examination techniques to solve such problems effectively.

Teaching Experience:

9 years of teaching experience of science subjects(Physics, Chemistry, Biology), English and Math to the students of KS2, KS3, GCSE and A levels.I started my teaching career in 2004 with A-Level and GCSE teaching. In 2008, when I completed my Pharmacy Degree, I joined professional bodies as a teacher. I have also been tutoring IELTs for the last two years.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Physics with Astrophysics student at the University of York. I am a confident, mature individual who is driven to be successful. I have a down to earth personality which will make me more relatable and easier to pass on my breadth of knowledge.

Teaching Experience:

The only experience I have with students was in my second year of college. In collaboration with the Maths department, I ran a peer mentoring session with first years every week. This was an hour long meeting in the library or a classroom with 5-6 students, where I would help them with topics they struggled with or go over some details from their lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important and effective way of learning is through practice of the subject. I would use the first part of a session to go over some important points to a topic and teach basic skills. Then put these into practice, going through questions, aided and unaided, including past paper questions.

Personal Description:
I recently returned to the UK after a number of years living and teaching in China, and now I wish to use the experience i have gained over the years to help students who need to learn English in the UK.
When i am not working i enjoy travelling and playing sport. In addition to living in China, i have also lived in New Zealand and Australia and travelled extensively in Europe.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years. My experience has been gained predominantly in China, though i have taught at a college in the UK. I have taught a variety of nationalities and also all ages and levels. I possess both the CELTA and DELTA teaching practice qualifications. I was also an IELTS speaking and writing test examiner for two years and have passed a Cambridge certified online course in the teaching of IELTS.

Tutoring Approach:

Having lived and worked in China for many years, i am aware of the difficulty of learning a foreign language. However,i believe that with the right attitude, approach and guidance it is possible to achieve your study goals in any language.
I believe in establishing realistic and quantifiable goals when beginning tutoring for progress to be measured against. I also believe that work done in a student's own time is as important as work done in a formal classroom setting. Regular review of what has been studied is also vital.

Personal Description:
I am different and kind teaching tutor as well as my responsibilities as a tutor will be to find not only what motivates each student to learn but also what motivates them to misbehave. If we can meet them at that point and take away that motivation, we can go a long way towards a more effective classroom and learning experience.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently studying BSC Business Management with Finance in University at London. I am new tutor so hence I feel that student will able to learn from me if I explain it to them in a respectable manner. Students will need to learn in order to achieve good grades so to do that they must have a positive attitude towards their own learning, attend the sessions on time, improve by practising as much times as possible to get it right.

Tutoring Approach:

I have qualification such GCSE's, A levels and will soon join University in London for degree in BSC Business Management with Finance. I feel that I can achieve and help a student to gain improvements within their grades. My teaching is different as I teach slowly so the student could gain the knowledge and understands it, so hence I teach into steps so the student could learn. No point rushing as this will put stress on the student mind which could be a very concerning issue of health.
(Please Note: you must not force anyone to learn quickly or they will struggle with their studies).

Personal Description:
I am passionate about teaching English and love helping those who struggle just as much as stretching those who find it easier. I have 17 year teaching experience and in that time, have taught children up to the age of 13; helping older children prepare for 13+ Public School Entrance exams as well as teaching younger children to master phonics, basic reading skills and spelling. I am an experienced SATs marker enabling me to help children to prepare for these exams. I have worked closely with learning support departments in order to support and extend those children with difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. I have achieved part one of a Diploma in Teaching Children with Specific Learning Difficulties. I also have a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language which means I have an in depth knowledge of English grammar as well as an understanding of how teenagers and adults learn.

I am an avid reader and writer but a mum to a reluctant reader so I understand how difficult it can be to get children to read. I do, however, believe that there is something for everyone.

Additionally, I can teach French and German. I have taught them both to GCSE level and studied both languages to degree level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 17 years and was most recently a teacher of years 5 to 8 English and French at a well-respected private school for children aged 5 - 18. Prior to that I taught at an independent prep school where I was a class teacher as well as a member of the Senior Management Team and Head of Girls' Games. I have an excellent understanding of all aspects of child development and the need to make learning meaningful and fun. I am passionate about reading as well as all types of writing and am a member of the National Handwriting Association. I am also able to include IT in the classroom when necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends entirely on the needs of the child. After an initial consultation, I would be able to offer support with reading and comprehension and/or writing (whether it be handwriting or speed of writing - or both). It might be a case of helping your child to understand English grammar as well as teaching them techniques to enable them to include it effectively in their own writing. If it is a case of preparing for forthcoming exams, then this can be done by using past papers as well as my own materials devised after extensive experience of helping children prepare for all types of exams. You may just want some extra support for your child over the summer and prior to the start of a busy new term. Whatever it is, it will be done with empathy and enthusiasm.
