Personal Description:
I am a friendly and inspiring Tutor who has supported students of all ages and abilities in achieving their maximum potential.

I am able to adapt my expertise to each student's needs thereby extending their confidence in their own abilities.

Teaching Experience:

My main subjects are English and Mathematics, as well as entrance test preparation subjects and Sociology.

I have a BA Hons Degree in Social Studies and a PGCE in Primary Education

I am a fully qualified and experienced Teacher and have supported a significant number of students from primary to undergraduate level.

By focussing on establishing a positive relationship with each student, my tutees either achieve or exceed their learning targets.

I am experienced at preparing students for exams, including SATs, GCSEs, IELTs and entrance tests as well as intensive short-term revision work to prepare students for a particular exam such as resits.

I have also supported many students whose second language is English, who may be seeking to improve their communication skills within their workplace or preparing for school exams, as well as successfully preparing many adult learners for the QTS skills tests in Literacy and Numeracy, along with IELTS and iGCSEs.

I also offer a proofreading service to under-graduate and post-graduate students who are studying a variety of subjects from Business Management to Chemistry.

Here are a few of the comments that have been made by some of my students:

After a short period of intensive GCSE Maths revision, Mr Brown commented, "Great tuition, made a big difference to my son's exam results."

Mr Jones, an adult learner, recently commented that, following a course of tuition in Literacy skills, he "now feels more confident in writing, spelling and grammar" and that "communication via email and telephone was excellent".

Mrs Barker has also recommended Tina, stating that "Tina has achieved excellent results for our daughter in GCSE English" and that she is "personable and has high integrity".

Mrs Smith claimed that her 7 year old son, Josh, "has gained in confidence and ability since receiving tuition. He has enjoyed his sessions and has felt more able to tackle challenging work."

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about both high quality teaching and learning and would describe myself as an enthusiastic, dedicated and professional Tutor who has enabled a significant number of students to achieve their maximum potential and boost their grades, often within weeks or a few months.

When working with a student, I believe it is important to provide a friendly and informal learning environment so that they can develop and learn at their own pace. While my approach is calm and encouraging, I also ensure that activities are stimulating and based on the student's age and abilities so they can enjoy and extend their learning and understanding at their own pace.

View George's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
My name is George, I am twenty-three years old and am currently working as an auditor and trainee Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales at Deloitte LLP.

I studied French and Spanish at the Russell Group University of Southampton, where I achieved a 2:1 grade (missing a First-Class by 1%) when I graduated in June 2015. During my time at university I spent a year abroad in Alicante, Spain where I studied at the local university and became a fluent Spanish speaker. I have maintained that level of Spanish to date by working on Spanish-speaking clients operating in Latin America as part of my job.

My French ability has declined since university due to lack of practice, though I am still capable of helping with assignments up to A-level standard with tutees.

I have recently completed the Professional Level of examinations with the ICAEW, meaning I am "part-qualified" and have completed 12 out of the 15 exams necessary to qualify. I passed all units comfortably on the first attempt despite conflicting pressures from work and short time-frames allotted to me to study. I have both the exam credentials mentioned here and 18 months (current) experience working as an auditor, which allow me to tutor accounting to a high level.

I enjoy relaxing with my friends, eating out, exploring London (my family is from Manchester area), many kinds of music, videogaming and following the world of rowing. I am generally a relaxed kind of guy to be around, easy to get on with, and pride myself in my ability to "take things easy" and not get stressed.

Teaching Experience:

I have no official previous teaching experience as such, however when I understand something well I have no difficulty explaining it to others in a clear manner.

As a second-year graduate at work I am often tasked with explaining accounting concepts and testing approaches to the first-years, which I have been doing with success for six months.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and non-pressuried style of teaching, and will be able to help the student feel at ease. I do not have access to any teaching material unavailable to the public online, so would need the student to have papers/worksheets/textbooks etc from school for us to work on/go through together, or any problems they may be encountering in their minds for us to resolve.

I would not call myself an academic, but my methods have enabled me to reach a good degree-level standard with my languages and to complete my professional accountancy exams relatively comfortably, and I would be more than happy to help others find a way to overcome any issues they may have with their studies.

Personal Description:
I studied Theology at both Leeds Trinity College and Durham University, where I achieved a First Class Honours degree and later Merit. After doing regular guest teaching and classroom assistance, I took the PTLLS Level 4 at the Advance Training Academy and began tutoring in 2014. Since then I have taught people from Cramlington, Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, and Sunderland (to name just a few examples). Each of my students has steadily increased their grades, achieving A*-C.

My aim is to provide first quality tuition in Religious Studies and Philosophy and to help people become more confident in these subjects. I am an individual who is committed to making education a lasting experience rather than a lecture to be endured. My experiences have taught me that each student has the potential to grow and change. To that end I take on students of all dispositions, from the confident and capable to nervous and struggling type.

I am based in the North East of England and offer face-to-face tuition to anyone in this region. However, I offer online tuition to people from other regions (Skype, phone or email).

If you want extra help, email me and we can set up an ice-breaker session. Each lesson from then onwards is specifically tailored to your learning style. We can then focus on a combination of extra content and exam technique. I will continuously ask for feedback to make sure that you are satisfied with the quality of service.

Teaching Experience:

My experience is threefold:
Classroom assistance: I did classroom work at Gateshead Volunteering and Opportunities Centre and New College Durham (2013). My duties involved: helping struggling students with classroom activities, helping them to express themselves and dealing with classroom behavioural issues. When working with students, I was noted for being approachable, compassionate, kind and patient.
Guest teaching: I gave regular guest lessons in Theology and Religious studies at Leeds Trinity University College, Jesmond Methodist Church, Gosforth High School and the Royal Grammar School (2011-14). My lessons were recognised as well-prepared, thought-provoking, and thorough.
Personal tutoring: since I started tutoring in the North East, I have taught students from Cramlington, Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, Gosforth, and Sunderland. I have also given online tuition to students at various regions of the UK (2013-). See testimonials for clients' views on me.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer two types of tuition:
Face-to-face: tuition is conducted at the student's home. It is always good practice to have an adult around the house. Face-to-face tuition is available to any student within reasonable travelling distance of Newcastle City Centre.
Online: tuition is conducted via phone, Skype and email (depending on the client preference). Online tuition is available to any student in the UK.

Each lesson is tailored to individual needs. The preliminary meeting will focus on your learning needs, and from this we will establish your goals for the tuition and the process for helping you to meet them. We will discuss how we can make the sessions play to your individual learning styles and strengths.

In lessons, we usually focus on two specific areas:
Extra teaching: we will usually have a discussion on a particular topic.
You will be given a detailed hand-out, some discussion questions, and (if necessary) a brief background on the important key thinkers.
Essay-writing: I will provide an essay-writing formula, which we will then
apply to past-paper questions, which will support you to write essays based on past exam papers. As part of the service, I will review the answer and provide detailed feedback to support further learning.

Personal Description:
My name is Ed. I graduated from Durham University with 1st class honours in Maths and Physics. I achieved straight A result with six A-levels including Maths, Further Maths, German, Physics, Chemistry and Chinese. I am an experienced tutor and have previously tutored students from a variety of schools and universities. I am very patient and my primary focus is to help you achieve your goals and objectives.

I currently work in the finance industry. I also work as a private tutor for three leading well known tutoring agencies in London.

I am flexible and can travel to you as well as Skype tuition. I am available in the evenings on weekdays and anytime on the weekends.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I can provide you references upon request.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor at Bonas Macfarlane, London, July 2010 - Present
I tutor a variety of subjects at different levels from primary schools to A-levels. I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Chinese. I also offer service on giving academic advice as well as interview techniques for entering into top schools and universities in the UK.

Private Tutor at Bright Young Things, London, September 2012 - Present
Bright Young Things is the second largest tutoring agency after Bonas Macfarlane whom I also work for. With Bright Young Things my focus had been Maths at A-level and GCSE.

University Marker, Department of Mathematics, Durham University, October 2009 - May 2010
I mentored second year Maths undergraduates at Durham University. I have learned to work through the arguments and thought processes of others and give constructive feedback.

Sixth Form Tutor, Framwellgate Sixth Form College, Durham, October 2006 - June 2009
I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years. I helped all of my tutees achieve more than what they were initially targeting to achieve. I also learned to prepare teaching materials and adopt various teaching methods.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is to go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students to work on more specific and challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are constantly motivated and encouraged in order to self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

I also strive to make lessons as interactive as I can. I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

Personal Description:
Postgraduate Student.

I am a twenty-one year old postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and understand the tricky bits of their material which is escaping their understanding. I am a Canadian studying abroad here in Glasgow and therefore do not have GCSEs or A levels, but I have the equivalent levels from Canadian institutions with top marks. I tutor best in history, my chosen subject, English or French as a second language, and maths, which I not only did well in during secondary school, but all of which I have also studied at the University level. I get along very well with students of all ages and try to make the tutoring experience a fun an interesting one for any student.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring 1 on 1
ESL teaching (Group sizes from 5-12)
Age range of experience: 7-18 year olds

I have several years of teaching experience in different settings and with different age groups. I've taught English as a Second Language in a camp setting which ran lessons similar to classroom lessons every morning. I had to design my own approaches to various topics which gave me a lot of practice in making studying and learning interesting and easier for children who were less interested or struggling. I also tutored on a private basis for primary school-aged children through the medium of French and English in reading and writing skills as well as the general subjects at that age. I have tutored at the secondary school level in Maths, English, French, Sciences, and History. I have also been a teaching assistant at the University level for both Irish and Scottish Gaelic second language courses as well as a general Celtic World knowledge course.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun.
Aim is to help student learn how they understand instruction so that they are more confident in their own abilities and can perform better in the future.
Use past work to improve on future work.

Learning should be fun and I strive to make the tutoring experience less about school work and more about understanding the ways in which what is being taught is of interest to the student. Finding ways to improve the student's understanding and learning experience sometimes means approaching the material in a different way than is being taught in class. Teachers understand that not all student learn the same way but cannot always deliver their teaching in all these ways. By helping the student understand the material first and then explaining the method the teacher used to explain it first allows the student to reach their full potential, understand the material, and go back to class with a better chance following the teacher's instruction.

All of this is done in a light-mannered way that does not make the child feel as though tutoring is a punishment for not understanding in class, but rather, a (sometimes lengthy) temporary situation until the student becomes more confident about his or her own skills!

Using the student's own work is an important tool for helping them recognize their own areas of difficulty and should be used again as mock exams to help the student see tangible proof of their improvements. The best understanding of any subject comes from watching it being done/having it explained, doing it oneself, and then teaching it in turn.

Personal Description:
Hello there! I am an artist currently looking to tutor in the Tunbridge Wells area. I charge 30 per hour for KS1-3 students and 40 per hour for GCSE, A-Level, BA and MA Level.

Teaching Experience:

I am a painting and drawing specialist with over 10 years teaching experience. I have taught a wide range of students, from 6 year olds at primary level to a 90 year old student at a life drawing class for adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the needs of each individual student. Through my teaching I have developed exercises designed to strengthen observational and imaginative drawing and painting. I have a wide and deep knowledge of art history, from the art of indigenous peoples to contemporary art, and I draw upon this in my teaching. I aim to build my student's confidence with routine sketchbook work, clear technique instructions and balanced critique. My lessons are a balance of disciplined practice and fun.

Personal Description:
I am a hardworking, reliable and motivated student with a drive and eagerness to interact and work with people which will be achieved with this sales assistant job. I have currently completed my GCSEs last month and will now be able to focus on a job. The A-levels I aim to take and eventually the career I am pursuing requires a varied skills which I am certain I will be able to get from a job at your placement. I am a highly determined and persistent individual and take pride in the work I do.

Maths - 8
English - 8
Biology- A*
Chemistry- A*
Physics - A*
Business - A*

Teaching Experience:

The achievements and skills I have include:
Two weeks work experience at a Primary School - 4-16th July 2016
9 months experience in tutoring a 2 young individuals for their SATs
Team work- played on the Coventry and North Warwickshire Netball team for 2 years
Communication- past employment gave me an opportunity to develop my communication skills with the individuals around me.
Interpersonal skills - work in a Primary School meant I developed empathy and sympathy as I was most often put in charge of the Year 2 class and had to resolve fights and quarrels.

If needed I can provide a reference from the two young that I have tutored for the past 10 months.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to engage the child through fun and interactive methods. I am a strong believer in active learning so will ensure the child has a good time learning so that they do not just have to learn but they want to learn.
I am proposing a 1 hour tutoring session once a week on a Sunday (or any other day suitable in respect to the child) and in this sessions materials and past papers will be provided for the child including a calculator for the student. The sessions will be timed to ensure we finish on time and meet the deadlines of the individuals.
