I am an excellent teacher and all my students grades get up to A* when they take my advise.

I am doing a PGCE in Teaching French in secondary schools and will complete in June 2017. I tailor my lessons via different types of presentations to suit the individual learner from my laptop and I am familiar with all exam boards including AQA, OCR, WJEC, Edexcel and Eduqas (new GCSE exam-board) etc. I also use a range of textbooks depending on the students requirements. I can also provide references before tutoring commences.

My students include those from Merchents Taylors, Brunel University, St John Fisher Primary School Oxford University and Eaton College to name but a few. I can certainly move you at least two grades up to the A* if that is what your student requires.
I have been teaching French for the last 7 years to children from the ages of 3 yrs to 65 yrs within a group environment Reception, Primary, GCSE, AS ans A2 levels, Degree and Adults. Fun French using music, games,activity sheets.

I have a very flexible approach and use phonetic methods as my specialty is in accuracy of pronunciation.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Dr. Zara and I tutor students in the age group 13-18. I hold a Ph.D. in medical biochemistry and a PGCHE from the University of Kent. I am currently working at the University of Bristol.

I specialise in teaching Chemistry and Biology at A-level, specifically for OCR and AQA exam boards. I also teach Edexcel Biology (SNAB). I come across as a friendly, patient and enthusiastic tutor. I strive to make learning a creative and enjoyable experience, while always keeping the students goals in mind.

In the academic year ending June 2011, 80% of my students of my students achieved predicted or better-than-predicted grades, and the majority of them were able to go to a University of their choice. Their testimonials are available for you to read on my website.

Apart from regular tutoring, I also offer intensive coaching in preparation for entrance exams, GCSE and A-level exams. I am able to help with homework assignments and proofreading. Additionally, I have previous experience of tutoring students with special needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have six years teaching experience at both undergraduate and post-graduate level, in addition, I have been a part-time tutor for four years. I have marked GCSE and A-level papers and can offer advice on the best way to answer exam questions to maximise marks. Most of my students show rapid increase in confidence levels after 2-3 sessions of tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to motivate young people to achieve the best of their abilities. I believe that all students can do well, turning negative barriers into positive outcomes. My approach is to break down difficult areas into bite size achievable goals. I set goals for my tutees and plan my lessons well in advance. Lesson plans and student progress reports are available to both tutees and parents. For students who work with me for an entire year, I offer additional help with exam paper revision and feedback sessions.

Personal Description:
I went to school in Rugby and have lived here off and on for the last 50 years. I retired early from teaching to go travelling in Europe in a Camper Van. My hobbies include DIY, cooking, pub quizzes, golf, walking and following Chesterfield football club. I enjoy socialising and spending time with my family. I work occasionally for an out of school tuition service teaching Mathematics to students who are out of school for medical reasons. My main subjects are A level and GCSE Economics, A level and GCSE Business and GCSE Mathematics. I also teach privately and over the last 2 years have taught seven students. The 3 students I taught mathematics to both achieved C grades at higher level. Initially they were studying foundation level! The 4 students who studied A Level Economics with me all achieved A* in their examinations.

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 30 years in 3 different schools and 2 colleges of further education. I have taught Economics, Business Studies and Mathematics to GCSE level and Business Studies and Economics to A level. The students I have taught have nearly always achieved their potential grade or better. I have taught students of all levels of ability and always established a good working relationship with them.

Tutoring Approach:

I have experiece of teaching students on a one to one basis having taught Economics and Mathematics as a private tutor. I believe it is important to establish a positive working relationship with each student I teach. It is important to establish early on the weaknesses in understanding of different topics and where possible to turn these weaknesses into strengths. Very often problems in understanding are due to a lack of confidence sometimes because the tutee is reluctant to ask for clarification in the classroom or because they simply don't understand the basics of the subject. On a one to one basis the tutor has more time to explain the basics and develop the skills of the tutee and the tutee is more likely to respond to this without feeling they are inadequate.
An important part of tutoring is practicing exam type questions and past examination papers in order to increase the students confidence and ability to answer questions under examination conditions. The key to success is establishing which topics are easy for the student to understand and making sure the students can answer any possible exam questions on these topics.

Personal Description:
In July 2013, I graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London, undertaking a BMus (Hons) Music degree (2.1) with a principle study in singing (1st). I took two gap years before going to university to gain experience in the music and drama fields. I have studied modules at university ranging from Bach to Beethoven and Sibelius to Weill.

Teaching Experience:

Responsibilities included teaching 8-13 year old mixed pupils classroom music as well as supervising music practices. I also tutored pupils through grade 5 theory achieving merit and distinction grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very laid-back attitude to teaching and will teach you in similar ways that I have been taught. I understand totally that some pupils need several ways of explaining things so bring a variety of teaching methods to my lessons. I make teaching interesting and engaging and always try to relate the subject to the pupil. I have been very fortunate to learn under some inspirational teachers and would love to be able to carry on their enthusiasm to other students.

Personal Description:
2008 National Teaching Award Winner (Southern Region.)
Volunteer linesman every Sunday - for my 3 sons' football teams.
Keen cyclist - I've cycled further than the distance around the equator as I commuted to and from school.
Animal lover - I enjoy jogging with Scout, my rescue dog.
Educational author - I wrote a maths assessment book that was sold in WHSmith.
Piano player - I accompany a large choir that performs in both the Guildhall and the Cathedral in Portsmouth.
Prioritiser - In 2010 I decided to reduce my hours so that I could spend more time with my wife!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a classroom teacher for 23 years in 3 different schools; I was head hunted for the last job and when I left it in November 2016, it was graded outstanding by OFSTED. I have predominantly worked in year 6 where I have helped to raise standards of attainment - I have been successful in accelerating progress for many pupils (particularly in maths) to double Government expectations.

I have spent most of my career as a maths manager in schools but I have also led English and science. I have been a key stage leader for over 10 years and have mentored trainee teachers who have gone on to have their own successful teaching careers.
Winning the 2008 Award for Best Primary School Teacher in the South was an amazing experience. The judges interviewed pupils, staff and parents - families who weren't able to attend the meeting were able to submit letters of support and the highlight of the whole process was getting to read these testimonials afterwards.

Tutoring Approach:

Every pupil is different: each pupil has their own particular knowledge of facts, procedures and concepts, but they are also unique in their attitude, experience, confidence and motivation. Finding a tutoring approach that best suits each child is very important and, where appropriate, I make use of the recent educational principles of 'Growth Mindset' which challenge the notion that some people are just born clever, and encourages pupils to value risk taking, criticism and effort.

Individual tuition allows time so rarely afforded in whole class lessons to track back and identify the misconceptions that can sometimes be the underlying cause of slow progress or issues with confidence. The focus of good teaching is about building all new learning onto secure foundations and making strong and varied connections between concepts.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone learns differently and I will find the best way for you, focusing on understanding rather than rote learning. This is much easier and more effective in a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere, something I try to establish in every session: learning doesn't have to be a chore!
