Personal Description:
I have been told that I am a passionate, encouraging and dedicated tutor.

"Edward helped both me and my daughter with Maths tuition this year, for GCSE higher level and IGCSE respectively. We both made excellent progress and grew in confidence with help and encouragement from Ed, who combines an easygoing manner with an extremely serious and professional approach to teaching his subject. Ed is able to get right to the heart of a student's confusion very quickly and to give clear and well-illustrated explanations. I couldn't recommend Ed more highly."

Teaching Experience:

I hold a 1st Class degree (Bsc) in Mathematics from Durham University and have been tutoring full-time since September 08.

I mainly tutor GCSE and A-level Physics and Maths (including further maths) but do have experience tutoring at other levels.

I have taught GCSE mathematics in a local private school and continue to hold 1st and 2nd year tutorials at Sussex University.

I usually hold tutorials at my home in Brighton (please see contact details) but do occasionally travel to the student's house.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are informal but focused.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a well qualified, BA, MPhil, PGCE teacher who is looking to branch out into more private tutoring work. I have privately tutored for many years and have experience since 1996. I have taught at all key stages and enjoy my work thoroughly. Last year (2016) my A level tutees all raised their grades by at least one and have gone off to uni. Proud to add that one in particular achieved an A* in Geography A level.
Please note that my rates are based on one to one tuition. Should you wish me to tutor groups of two or more either at home or in school I am happy to do so but rates will need to be discussed prior to my commencing work.
I now have experience of working on the E Bacc and depth studies.

History in school at KS 3 and 4 AS and A level
I can also teach basic geology and archaeology and classical studies.
Classical Civilisation to A level

Tutoring Approach:

I am always keen to engage students in whatever subject they are studying. I believe in being supportive and constructive in all that I teach. I am currently working on a one-to-one project with a student with special needs.
An excellent set of results (2015) all my 10 students passed, all raised their grade levels by at least one letter. All those off to uni are about to go so I wish them all well. Three others have a year or two left at school and have asked me to tutor them over the required time span.

Personal Description:
PhD Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering

BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (First class honours)

Teaching Experience:

I have a formal teaching experience and worked as a Lecturer Mechanical Engineering. I have been giving the tutorial lectures at Loughborough University to engineering undergraduates during my PhD. I have also tutored (and currently tutoring) physics and mathematics to a number of GCSE and A-levels students.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which students feel more confident to raise questions. I like to listen to my students being at their level to address and identify the basic difficulties that they face in understanding the subjects. I try to involve the students in problem solving and present the subjects in an interesting manner with the help of useful hints that are often required and proved to be helpful to provoke the original thought in order to improve their analytical skills. I find myself committed and patient and I believe that such teaching skills make me ideal for tutoring. I frequently highlight the practical implications of the subjects where possible so that the students could relate the subjects to their future careers. I am be willing to concentrate on the specific areas that the student requests. The focus of my approach is to prepare the students for the exams by developing the analytical thinking in order to solve the problems. The deeper understanding of the mathematical sciences could only be achieved through the intensive practice.

  • Combined Science
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
As a child, I learned by being told, by beatings, shaming and a strict examination system. As you can imagine I didn't learn much that I could later apply to my academic life. As a result, I became an inveterate learner, always interested in learning the next thing. At one point, the drive to learn was because I didn't see myself as being good enough. Later on, that drive became an interest in discovering my own abilities as well as about helping others. I have now learned so much about how not to teach that I have gained good insight into how learning happens. I am keen to ensure all my learners learn how to learn and understand how to apply what they discover.

Teaching Experience:

My background is in teaching, training and facilitation. I have over 25 years experience of teaching in different forms having worked within primary, secondary and further education settings. I am an NVQ / TAQA assessor and trained and assessed Parenting Practitioners and other candidates up to Level 5 in Health & Social Care. I have specialist skills in Personal Effectiveness subjects such as Report Writing, Speed Reading, Presentation Skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Being a private tutor used to be the preserve of only those with the highest qualifications and the greatest experience. Now all that's changed.

However good a tutor is, the learner needs to be astute in order know if the tutor is a good match for her / him. Importantly, making the right choice can be complex.
Here are three tips to help you decide if I am or someone else is right for you. The following tips describe how I teach and how I will enable you to be an independent learner.

1. Look for a tutor who can teach you how to learn
Here's a funny thing… learners study a subject, sometimes for months and years and can come away with no long-term memory of the underpinning principles of the subject. As disturbing, they have no ongoing understanding of the subject. They are unable to apply what they tried to learn. This is easily resolved by clearing up past issues with learning. In Applied Scholastics it is now well known that if as a learner, you are helped to do so, you can learn any subject. This is central to how I teach.

2. Look for tutors who understand the main barriers to learning and can help you overcome them
There are three main barriers to study. They relate to confusion over an idea, missing out critical steps and having unclear ideas about the subject under study. Gaining a day to day facility with overcoming those barriers is key to effective and efficient study. I use these methods to help my own reading and study. I will introduce them to you so that you can use them too.

3. Look for tutors who can help you find the information you need so that you keep expanding your own understanding of the subject

Sometimes, a learner during a course of study will find that s/he wants to give up. Have you ever experienced this? Whenever that happens it is because there is something - an idea, a symbol, a form of punctuation, the use of a word, or something else - that you did not understand. Without the proper factual information on this and without the correct knowledge of why and how this happens, the learner will struggle. Without knowing what remedies to apply, the learner will give up.

When you study, you are investing time and energy. In this case, money too. If you want to discover more about how you learn, what your barriers to study are and how to understand more, you will benefit from being an independent learner. That will repay your investment.

Those three critical points should help you decide if I could be right for you. They briefly describe the way in which I would work with you and enable you to be an independent learner.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my PhD at the University of Dundee.

I enjoy reading various philosophy from Ancient Greek to modern postmodernism.

Teaching Experience:

I am a current tutor for the philosophy department at the University of Dundee. I also teach the philosophy summer course for the university.

I have been a tutor for 5 years and teaching the summer course for 2 years.

I also previously taught an adult course for the University of Dundee based on a causal reading of the philosophy of Plato.

Tutoring Approach:

Philosophy is a difficult subject to understand with technical concepts and explanations. My teaching approach simplifies these concepts and explanations by relating them to everyday examples. Also where appropriate they are also related to film and tv examples. This approach then aims to clarify and help the student's understanding but also make the learning process fun and engaging.

Philosophy is also a subject that encourages critical thinking. I encourage my students to be critical of the philosophers and ideas that are being discussed. Their criticisms then can illuminate a deep problem in the philosophy or be comparable to another philosopher's objection.

Resolution of any problems or issues that arise whilst addressing a philosopher is also key. This is because no problem is trivial and helps to clarify the student's understanding and also make the text easier to understand. Any problem will be addressed such as difficultly in understanding an area in the text, concept, or in understanding another philosopher's criticism.

Homework will be given that covers the discussion. Typically these questions will be for the student to give an explanation of concept and how this can be practically applied.

Overall my teaching approach is:
*Simplification of Ideas
*Use of everyday, TV and film examples
*Resolution of student's problems
*Homework based on the discussion to clarify the student's understanding
