Personal Description:
I was born and brought up in the North East of England. I have always enjoyed Maths and was awarded a number of prizes for my mathematical ability during my education, including achieving one of the highest A-level scores in the country. I completed a Maths degree at Newcastle University and decided to combine my ability in Maths with my passion for working with young people and follow teaching as a career.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE at Newcastle University in 2006 and have been teaching GCSE and A Level Maths since I qualified. I am currently Deputy Director of Sixth Form with responsibility for raising achievement at Key Stage 5, as well as overseeing Maths and Further Maths at A Level. My A Level and GCSE results have over the past few years have shown consistently high levels of 'value added', particularly with students aiming for the higher grades.

Outside of school, I have worked as an examiner for Edexcel marking GCSE and A-Level papers which I feel gives me invaluable knowledge of the examination process. I have been tutoring a selection of GCSE and A-Level students for the past 5 years and have achieved many positive results. One of my particular strengths is the confidence I give students in order to overcome their fears or weaknesses in this subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand the varying needs of pupils and can adjust my tutoring style accordingly.

I believe the best way students learn is through careful and detailed explanation followed by questions to consolidate each topic. Setting homework is therefore an important part of the tutoring process.

To prepare students for exams I can produce booklets of past exam questions organised by topic and teach students the best way to answer each question. I will also spend time going through past papers in order to improve their exam technique.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am an elite tutor with a Masters Degree in English Literature from the University of Cambridge. I specialise in English and Drama, and I also speak Italian to near fluency. I studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and I am now a full time theatre director, working freelance. I have worked on shows in the West End, at the National Theatre and the Almeida Theatre among others.

I also have specialist experience of Oxbridge admissions and drama school applications.

My literature specialties are Shakespeare, American literature and all literature of the last thirty years.

Teaching Experience:

I have now been tutoring consistently for over seven years. Every one of my students has achieved the highest possible grade in the subjects in which I have tutored them.

Testimonies from previous students:

'We could never have done it without Tom'

'Tom was everything we could have asked for in a tutor. Helpful, reliable and seemed to gel immediately with our son'

'Tom was able to sort out many difficult areas in the syllabus.
Through the course of the lessons I gained the confidence and clarity needed for a very important exam.
I highly recommend Tom as he is a patient and kind teacher that I believe can provide help to any student struggling with drama.'

I worked as a volunteer teacher at an international school in Swaziland for three months, running drama classes and English classes. I also coached the school rugby team. In the drama classes I focused very much on basic dramatic skills through games and exercises, while the English classes were much more specific, focusing on Shakespeare texts and working in particular on Graham Swift's 'Waterland', which was a set text for the IB exam that year. I am currently affiliated with the National Youth Theatre as well as several drama schools; I work with educational projects in theatres and drama schools around London, working closely and extensively with students and young people.

Tutoring Approach:

When I tutor I like to be very open and conversational with the student. What is especially important is that the student comes away with the belief not that they have been dictated to, but that they have discovered things for themselves. I ask a lot of questions, guiding the student towards a conclusion rather than imposing it directly. This makes for a very interactive and exciting experience, an experience that contrasts perfectly with the proscriptive, curricular methods of traditional schoolteaching.

My approach also enables me to adapt to the needs of each individual student, and to have conversations both with them and with their parents. I recognise that each tutee has specific, unique needs, and I am totally prepared to adjust my style to such needs.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Lina

I am available to help students learn different languages and improve their oral and written skills. I can help younger students prepare for their GCSE exams and I can also teach intensive 1-2-1 business level courses. I am available to teach face to face or online via Skype.

I am very passionate about travelling and find that my love for languages enables me to get the most out of my trips. I see languages as a key to unlocking different cultures and experiences that I may have may otherwise have missed out on.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students aged between 12 and 80 from over 50 countries around the world. I have taught many different levels of German from ABC courses for students who could not read or write, up to advanced business courses.

As part of one of my roles I was involved with the German Immigration Ministry, which included providing courses and exams to people who wanted to live in Germany.

I can prepare students to take Test DaF,DSH and Zertifikat Deutsch exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been teaching languages for over 16 years now and I have lived and breathed the German culture for many years. This allows me to give students a real insight into the way of German life. I can use many real world examples in the way I deliver the course material, to help students better understand what is being taught to them.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in Mathematical Economics from the University of Birmingham and a Chartered Management Accountant. I worked in finance for about twenty years and have been a governor in primary and secondary schools for many years before deciding to enter the teaching profession. I have been on the GTP training course for Secondary Mathematics at London South Bank University. I am the Instructor of the Kumon Study Centre in Eltham and do one-to-one tutoring in mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have 30 students on the Kumon maths programme at my study centre in Eltham. I individually tutor maths students from key stage 2 at primary school right through to A level. I also tutor statistics at GCSE, AS and A2 level. References are available on request.

Tutoring Approach:

There are many reasons why parents decide to appoint a tutor for their child. I will discuss your requirements in detail with you to ensure your child's tuition is tailored to them. Some pupils find the transfer from primary to secondary schooling problematic. I can explain the underlying mathematical concepts and to show them how to tackle questions so that they can get into the higher maths set for Key Stage 3 and GCSE. For older pupils I will build their confidence by presenting topics in a variety of ways and improving their exam techniques.
If one hour is too long for your child, I can arrange 30 or 45 minute slots. I will travel up to 5 miles from Sidcup.

Personal Description:
I am 32 years old and graduated from Leeds University with a 2:1 degree in Spanish Langauge and Literature with an accredited distinction in speaking. I spent a year in Murcia working for the British Council teaching English to Spanish students aged from 11-17. I am passionate about learning and teaching Spanish and I am keen to use my knowledge and experience to enhance other's language skills. I will tailor my classes to work on any areas of weakness to get the most out of my students and rest assured you will receive a high quality yet fun language lesson.

Teaching Experience:

I have 4 years of tutoring experience to date, I have helped a number of students with A Level and GCSE Exam prep. I privately tutored a student who was not studying Spanish at school just independently with myself and he an A* in GCSE. I am currently tutoring 2 adult learners and a primary school beginner to enhance their speaking skills and I am very keen to work with other students at varying levels.

Previously,I taught English for a year while working for the British Council in Murcia, Spain. This required me to source interesting material for classes, plan and then teach classes of up to 30 students at a time. As the level of english was low in some years I had to direct the entire class in Spanish and work out the best ways to encourage the children to engage in the English Language.

In addition to the language assistant role I also privately tutored 6 students whilst living in Spain, the ages ranged from 11 to an adult learner and each session was tailored to suit their needs.
Whilst at University I completed a City and Guilds Professional Development Award in Education, this required working on a mentoring programme with a GCSE student and documenting their progress.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to tailor my lessons to suit the learner, I will complete an assessment prior to starting the tutoring and work together with the student to identify potential areas of improvement. I am keen to pass on my Spanish Language knowledge and work with students to improve grammatical accuracy. I take great care and attention in lessons plans and aim to create a fun and positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
Hi, I am Hayes. I am originally from Hong Kong, and I came to study in Aberdeen University four years ago, and I recently graduated in Master of Arts in English and Language & Linguistics. As a native speaker of Cantonese and Mandarin, I am able to teach the two of my mother-tongue. Also, I am confident that my mathematics foundation formed in my high school years would allow me to teach Mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I was a voluntary tutor in my high school, teaching Mathematics and English as a second language. After coming to Aberdeen, I have helped my friends who were learning Mandarin in the university to achieve good grades in their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the most important job of a tutor is to inspire the tutee to think. It is impossible for people to learn just by reciting everything, they have to know how to analyse, then they will be able to tackle more difficult problems in the future.

Personal Description:
I was born in South Yorkshire. I grew up in Rotherham before gaining a English/History degree in Manchester followed by a PGCE at Sheffield Hallam University.
I am married and have a 10 year old stepson. My interests include reading, music, education, sport, keep fit, current affairs and walking.
I moved down to Devon in September 2016 and am loving the lifestyle down here.
I love my job and feel that my enthusiasm stimulates and encourages my students to excel.

Teaching Experience:

Having gained my PGCE I taught for 9 years in medium-sized village school in a picturesque part of Derbyshire. I very much enjoyed my time there and gained some invaluable experience. I then took up a middle-management post at a suburban school in Doncaster. This was a different experience which enabled me to work with children of many different abilities allowing me develop efficient and successful teaching strategies.
I have a wide range of experience in teaching children from year one to year six. Over the last two years I have done supply work in numerous schools in South Yorkshire allowing me to remain up to date with current trends in teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a friendly, encouraging approach to tuition. I aim to put children at their ease, developing confidence, but like to cover as much ground as possible in the time we have. I ensure students (and their parents) receive clear feedback alongside targets for future development and set additional work to complete between lessons where appropriate. I have a flexible approach to tutoring based on the requirements of the student/parent. Lessons focus on building confidence, consolidating and developing concepts or focusing on specific areas requiring support.
Children learn in different ways and I always endeavour to teach in a manner that complements the student's preferred learning style. I monitor progress using formal and informal methods of assessment and encourage children to use self assessment.
Students can learn by either visiting my home, me visiting them or at a distance using Skype.
