Personal Description:
I have taught to all levels from reception class at primary school through to secondary school, sixth form college and university level.

Personal Description:
I'm a personable, down-to-earth UCL master's graduate and qualified English teacher with experience in securing good outcomes. Those outcomes often include students' target grades, but considering the versatility of my subject - in constructing arguments, self-presentation, interview technique, and so on - I also emphasise the broad, contextualised relevance of what I teach. It's not just about the grades, it's also about the doors those grades might open and how best to equip students to walk through them.

I hugely enjoy the sheer stimulation and engagement which great literature brings and hope to inspire my students with that same passion.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in 2008 through a university programme, and since then have worked with schools, private clients, abroad, and as a schoolteacher. My students have come from virtually every background and ability level. I have also taught since 2012 in various contexts including abroad and at home in schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Fundamentally, I take the mystery out of English. Whether it be essay structure, metaphor, politics or themes, I explain the subject in down-to-earth and practical terms, while always encouraging my students to expand their horizons and think about the world in which they live. My depth of learning in English at one of the world's premier centres for it, UCL, ensures I can meet any challenge you or your child may have.

I cannot teach English all in one go; like all languages, it must be learnt through years of immersion. Therefore, I ask that students work hard on their own, as well as with me, by reading regularly for pleasure and consuming other media in English as well. What I can do is refine your understanding of it and give you tips and tricks to get through those difficult exams.

I look forward to engaging with great students.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching Latin and Classical Studies for over 10 years. I have a BA Hons in Latin and Classical Studies from University College Dublin, a Masters in Classics from King's College London and a Diploma in Spoken Latin, for which I studied under the translator for the Vatican. I am passionate about my subject and love to share my enthusiasm for Latin with my students. As well as private tutoring, I also teach Latin and Classics in schools (both primary and secondary), run after school Latin clubs, and am also training teachers who will teach Latin as part of a project I am involved with to introduce Latin into state schools. I also teach Classical Studies and Ancient History.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Latin and Classical Studies for over 5 years. My students have been of all ages and at vastly different stages in their learning. I have helped students who have been struggling with school coursework, helped prepare students for exams, and also designed entire curricula for students who wish to learn from scratch. I come with excellent references and proven results, with some previous students having gone on to study Classics at Oxbridge and other third level institutions, obtaining Latin scholarships to college, and even going on to teach Latin themselves in secondary schools. I have experience of private tutoring, small groups, classroom teaching at both primary and secondary level, exam preparation classes, after school clubs and running teaching workships to train future teachers of Latin.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutorials to fit the needs of each individual student.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Turkish. I've been living in England since 1997 and completed my Computer Science degree in 2006 at Aston University / Birmingham. For my final year project I developed computer program to translate between Turkish and English. The program was build using a dictionary, set of rules listed in a pattern and a logic to extract meaning using the dictionary and the pattern. Turkish is morphologically a complex language. However complexity can be simplified by learning the patterns, and then enjoy making sentences using logic. I find learning a language exciting myself and after my degree started to learn German. Through listening to cd's of Michael Thomas. It was fascinating to see that he was using the same technique to teach couple of his students. During the learning process it was their logic that was being challenged more than their memory of words and phrases. I think it is ok to 'cheat' and look up words that you don't remember. Once you start making sentences using particular words and you are comfortable with the sentence you will also remember the word due to the pattern you have built in your mind. Regardless of our individual learning styles, I think building patterns is a more permanent and easy way of learning than trying to memorise everything.

Teaching Experience:

I ve been giving private tuition in Birmingham, and now I would like to continue this in Bournemouth. I am currently doing a research about effective ways of teaching Turkish. I am interested in teaching Turkish because I enjoy teaching, also the experience will support my project. My ultimate aim is to write and record my own teaching materials for learning Turkish

Tutoring Approach:

I developed my interest in languages through my degree. I am competent in teaching, and I will adopt my technique based on the individual's learning style. Most native English speaking people in the UK finds agglutinative languages difficult to comprehend, as they attempt to 'understand' by comparing them with their own or some other European language. I believe that I can provide techniques that will overcome this difficulty. I enjoy teaching Turkish because I believe that I can understand how different individuals perceive and learn. I find it challenging and rewarding to be able to connect with people, deliver information the way they will appreciate, and see people enjoying the experience of learning.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a French native living in the UK since 2011. I am enjoying my new life in London.

Currently workin as a Care Assistant in a nursing home, I am also studying to get a teaching qualification. I have been doing one-to-one tuition for a few years now.

My students usually describe me as friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and dedicated (based on students' satisfaction survey carried out by the school)

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor in French since 2012.

I have worked with people of all ages and abilities from primary school children to adult learners.

I have helped many young people improve their level in French and achieve great results for their GCSE'S and A Level's.

I also taught evening classes with a private Language School for one year in 2012 and have gained an amazing experience in teaching. I am really enjoying sharing my knowledge and seeing my students improving, asking useful questions, and having fun after all, speaking a new language as if they had always known it.

Tutoring Approach:

Different abilities and learning difficulties are all taken into consideration to give each student a personalised work plan to meet their needs and expectations in an approach that is non judgmental.

Students are not been made to "feel stupid" about their mistakes but encouraged to learn from them.

The advantages of one-to-one tuition :

-Work on a specific skill (eg. Speaking, listening, writing or grammar)
-Learn from scratch at your own pace
-Boost your confidence (eg. You may be shy to speak in your classroom, or maybe you learned French at school years ago and need some extra help before a trip to France)
-Help your child to learn faster at school in early years.

Regular practice and commitment are strongly advised for best learning results.

NB : I travel to the tutee for free up to 7 miles radius, an additional fee may be required for longer travel distance.

Personal Description:
From my experience in the classroom I realise that many students benefit from much more individual help than school can provide. I enjoy being able to help students on a one-to-one basis as it is very rewarding being able to improve their achievement and confidence.I am very grateful to my students and their parents for the relationships we have struck up, many of which have continued through the years.

Teaching Experience:

I am an English teacher with over 20 years experience teaching to GCSE, A-level and Oxbridge entrance.I have taught in both the independent and state sectors, in a large comprehensive and a small independent school. I have also tutored in Oxford and London for students from 10 to 19.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one or small groups of 2 or 3.

I aim to develop confidence by supporting the students and understanding their needs as a priority. I then encourage them to explore and develop ideas, giving them support while they grow in this. The key is building an excellent relationship in which high expectations enable them to make progress while always supported.

Personal Description:
I was born in Hamburg, Germany, am 24 years old and moved to Cardiff in 2013 to study towards a Master of Music degree at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. I completed a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Aberdeen in 2013 and graduated with 1st Class Honours.

I am an active performer, accompanist and composer, which I believe is very important in order to be able to speak from experience when teaching your instrument.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching piano and music theory for the past six years, both privately and at school and university. I have worked with children, university students as well as adults, ranging from early beginners to grade 8 standard and beyond.

I have prepared my students for school exams, graded exams, concerts and competitions and all of them passed and had successful performances.

Tutoring Approach:

I use various teaching resources which I have both collected and created myself to cover all areas of piano playing, i.e. sight-reading, theory, scales, technical exercises, duo and ensemble playing. I find it more important (especially for a young person) to develop a natural relationship with the instrument and to learn to love the sound of it by making it and listening to it rather than to merely focus on achieving grades as quickly as possible.

I believe that music should be a social activity. This is why I encourage all of my students to perform in front of each other at regular informal concerts as well as festivals and competitions, if the student feels ready.

Working with students and passing on my knowledge and skills is the most rewarding experience and based on the good relationship I have with all my students and their families as well as my students' successes in performances and competitions I am confident to say that they are having an enjoyable and rewarding time under my tuition.

Personal Description:
Hello there! My name is Sam and I'm a full time private tutor who has moved back to London this year. I completed a master's degree in maths at Leeds University and have been teaching ever since. I'm still very passionate about maths and am applying for a PhD to start in the next academic year. My personal time is taken up by studying the areas of maths I want to pursue (category theory and topos theory), learning more undergraduate maths courses so that I can tutor a wider number of areas, rock climbing, highlining and playing gigs. I also have a few maths related side projects such as co-writing a maths textbook aimed at those who have just finished their A levels, and error checking/giving feedback for a soon-to-be published book on topos theory by a researcher in Canada. I enjoy a productive life focussed around my passions of which teaching comes first, as I find nothing more satisfying than helping people and seeing their grades grow. I really appreciate you taking the time to see what I have to offer as a tutor, and hope to hear from you soon.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching in a variety of different areas and environments has been my primary source of work for nearly 8 years now. For the past year and a half since I finished my masters I have been a full time private tutor of maths, predominately working in Leeds. The variety of levels I've had the opportunity to teach has been exceptional. I have taught at GCSE, As, A and further maths level for school level maths along with teaching at every level of undergraduate mathematics, teaching both on a one to one basis and conducting group tutorials with groups of 20 second year students. In particular, it has been deeply gratifying to help foreign students secure undergraduate positions and students with health issues who have needed extra assistance due to being absent from school.
During my degree, I held weekly tutorials for the lower years and gave informal guitar lessons. During my gap year, I worked for six days a week as a climbing instructor for most of the year and taught guitar on my day off. It was over my A level years that I got my first teaching experience as a piano teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

One great difference and indeed benefit of being a private tutor over a teacher is the need to adapt to each individual student. I am in the great position of being able to focus on one student per lesson, and I wouldn't be doing the best work I can if I didn't take advantage of this. My style of teaching therefore revolves around learning from each lesson about the student's evolving strengths and weaknesses, so that I can focus my lesson planning around them for our next meeting. Along with this, I try to encourage students with positive reinforcement. Frankly speaking, maths is a scary subject for a lot of people and I have found that increasing a student's confidence in their ability does wonders for their grades, proving their confidence right. Patience and understanding are key to this form of encouragement. On top of all this, I have to take into account what level the student is studying at. Maths is a very different beast every single year, the challenge of understanding quadratic equations for the first time is very different in nature to understanding quotient groups for the first time, and so I change how I teach depending on the level and age of the student.

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:
FAQs

Which subject(s) do you teach?
I specialise in the humanities, the social sciences, and relevant creative industries up to (and inclusive of) degree level; I'm equipped to teach an array of closely-related topics, at various levels, by virtue of my diverse (academic and professional) background(s).

Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a (comb. hons.) bachelor's degree-English with Creative Writing, a master's degree-Professional Writing, and currently find myself undertaking a PhD by research.

How much do you charge?
My rate is 20 per hour, irrespective of subject, or level (there is no charge for the first/introductory session).

NB: my service is of no lesser quality than that of tutors whom request in excess of 60 per hour; I simply fail to see a correlation between entitlements to opportunity and financial means.

Where do you teach?
Primarily, I teach from home; however, I also offer online tuition (for those who would otherwise have to travel long distances, or are unable to travel).

When are you available?
I tutor full-time, alongside part-time postgraduate study. My hours are: 09:00-19:00, Mon-Sun.

I currently only have one space between Dec '16-Jan '17, but this may increase to two between Jan-Jun '17.

Which ages and levels do you teach?
KS1 to Level 6 (primary-degree).

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I'm an enhanced DBS certificate holder, and member of the DBS Update Service.

Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I'm a full member of The Tutors' Association.

Tell me about some of your current students.
Many of my current AS/A2 students are preparing for the January 2017 mock examinations-Psychology, English Literature, Sociology, Philosophy, or a combination thereof.

Teaching Experience:

What kind of experience do you have?
Aside from my experience as an academic tutor (which exceeds four years), I've also served NHS psychiatric services, as a negotiations/conflict resolution tutor: this role involved the design and implementation of dialectical interventions-chiefly, those concerned with emotionally complex situations (e.g. violence and aggression, high-stakes contexts, etc.).

Tutoring Approach:

Describe your tutoring approach.
I'm an experienced tutor, with a conversational approach; one that blends constructivist, cognitivist, and experiential learning theories-i.e., framing new concepts within a student's existing knowledge base, exploring (and adapting to) each student's unique learning style(s), turning theoretical concepts to practical problems, and encouraging self-directed learning (where appropriate).

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can facilitate online tuition via Skype, or a similar application. I involve a range of digital technologies (e.g. to annotate scanned written work, design original resources, etc.), with ongoing email correspondence and access to shared cloud storage serving complimentary functions.
