Personal Description:
I am passionate teacher and I love what I do.

I am flexible as to methodology, from very formal exam coaching, "by the book" lessons, to more relaxed conversation classes.

I specialise in intensive exam coaching and my students typically achieve A* at A / AS-level!
I am also familiar with the 11+ exams, my daughter had the choice between various offers from both state and independent schools!

I welcome ideas from my students about topics, if desired I can include audio-visual material into the lessons (news programmes, pop song lyrics, soap operas, etc) -you tell me WHAT you'd like to learn, and I'll work out a way for you to learn it. I have a range of authentic materials such as bus/train timetables, venue leaflets, maps, magazines and newspapers that we can incorporate if desired.
We can tailor sessions around your specific area of work/study/interests.

I learnt English formally in school as a child, and learned Spanish while working in Spain for six, and in Chile for one year.
I draw from my own language learning experiences to make lessons interesting and effective.

I am a mother of one "little" girl (who is bilingual in German and English and is currently learning Spanish) and for that reason I prefer scheduling classes between 900am and 330pm.
I can accommodate a small number of weekend/evening classes, and will always make room for anyone with an exam coming up!

Please drop me a line with any questions, I'm happy to answer all enquiries!

Teaching Experience:

8 years teaching English in language schools (Spain, Chile, UK)

11 years of teaching private students (English as a Foreign Language, German, Spanish)

5 years being a host-family for "total immersion" students who study and stay in my home for 14 days at a time.

11+ preparation

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and friendly but I expect a serious attitude to the work agreed upon.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and enjoy teaching all subjects, in particular maths and literacy. I strive to make learning interactive and fun for children and get a lot of satisfaction from helping children to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher and work mainly with 7-11 year olds. Prior to qualifying I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, often working on a one-to-one basis with children. I have a good range of teaching methods which I use to help children develop their knowledge and learning skills. I am able to build strong relationships with children, encouraging and leading them to become confident, independent learners. In addition to primary teaching I also have experience of teaching GCSE maths and level 2 adult maths.

Tutoring Approach:

All children are individuals and learn in different ways. I would undertake an initial assessment for your child and tailor lessons accordingly. I will always look at what children can do and work with them to discover the gaps in their knowledge and any misconceptions they may have. I feel it is important to set achievable targets and build up children's confidence in their own abilities. Linking the teaching of literacy and maths to other subjects and real life situations makes learning more meaningful to children.

Personal Description:
I have completed an LLB Law degree and have furthered this by undertaking a Legal Practice Course. I am currently working as a legal representative. In the past I have really enjoy working with young people and I feel that tutoring is something that is underrated and hugely beneficial to them. Due to working with young people in sports I have a full enhanced CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

At university I obtained a position as a Peer Assisted Learning coordinator and leader, which involved taking on a group of first years once a week in order to go over their notes, help them learn to study, revision and essay structuring techniques. This allowed students to have a different kind of learning environment to that of formalised education in which they were comfortable with practising work and asking questions. I very much enjoyed this and believe that it was highly beneficial to the students that attended.

Working at a local football centre I have been involved in several sporting/coaching projects for young people. This has allowed me to develop different teaching strategies related to different environments; these involve quick thinking and problem solving both skills which I deem to be essential when tutoring.

I have close links to a local secondary school and therefore am able to have access to valuable resources which will aid tutoring sessions.

I offer tutoring in GCSE and KS3 English, GCSE & KS3 Maths, GCSE PE and GCSE and A-Level Law.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring is a very important concept for some children. A lot of children benefit hugely from one to one information and reinforcement; and it may be a far more effective learning strategy for them. I think it is important to first gain an understanding of where a child's strengths and weaknesses lie, in order to focus on the areas which perhaps need improvement. I also value a child's input as they are good judges of what they feel they do well and what they may need help with. The tutoring sessions will move at a pace that the child is comfortable with, and help with homework and coursework will be available. For GCSE and A-Level tutoring if desired essay structuring and revision strategies can be discussed and learned, as these are often overlooked in schools.

I feel that tutoring outside of school may help improve a child's confidence within a school environment, be this in the work itself or in class discussions and for them as a person. It is not always easy for a child to speak up at school, and if they do not understand this may result in them falling behind. As a tutor I am able to reinforce school work at a pace more appropriate for the level of your child, and allow them to develop and learn in a way that is suitable and enjoyable for them.

  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am French and mother of 2.
In 2004 I registered with OFSTED to teach French to young children, being ofsted registered gives parents the peace of mind that I have a CRB and allows parents to pay me with Childcare vouchers if they have a scheme at work.

Mark student's class work coursework, record their grades and plan based on weak and or strong areas identified
Ensure that students work to their full potential
Work closely with department heads and head of the years that I teach to monitor the student development in different areas

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is an investigative and supportive. ie their is a lot of logics or knowledge that I child sometimes laready have, by questioning sometimes these will come out. That way the child will remember the information fo a longer time as he/she contributed to the answer. She/he feels valued and a part of the teaching and learning process.
Each child I tutor is alway given a diagnostic test. From the test I would do a Individual Learning Plan. During tutoring as I identify weak areas I address them individually. I see education as a completed chain link, that is if a child is lacking in certain background knowledge, they will find it difficult to move forward effectively with their education. Unless these weak areas are address and their knowledge concretize they find it difficult to move on.
Parent's feedback is apart of this process and children must be praised throughout their learning, when neccessary and this needs to be done in context.

Personal Description:
I'm married with three children, currently in their twenties, and with my wife have gone through the parental anguish of public and college/university exams every year since 2006 and will potentially do so for a few more!

I'm a professionally qualified accountant with an honours mathematics degree and a postgraduate certificate in education. I've had a career working in local government finance, supporting managers in managing their service budgets. I have particular interest in the relevant computer applications (e.g. spreadsheets), financial training and quality issues.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching practice at a Reading school.
Written and presented well-received financial training materials and currently lead a working group on training.
I've supported service managers with often limited numeracy ability to manage multi-million pound budgets.
While only one of my three children has a natural leaning towards scientific subjects, they got A, A* & B at Maths GCSE (fairly light-touch parental support, rather than any specific tutoring).
Tutored maths and Excel since 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

While always mindful of the immediate goal to pass exams and "get the grades", I endeavour to instill real understanding of the subject. While it would be great to hear I've helped turn a C into an A, I'd just as much hear that someone no longer fears or hates maths lessons.

Apart from Maths tutoring I can offer:

Excel Spreadsheet Support:
One-to-one sessions tailored to your needs, to learn new functions, pick up tips and good spreadsheet practice, problem solve on your current spreadsheets or help you build new practical spreadsheets.

Financial management for non-accountants: Are you one of those people given the responsibility to manage a budget at work, but feel you are lacking a bit of confidence and some of the skills to do it properly? Did you leave mathematics behind at school and feel it hasn't quite prepared you for this? I can hopefully help you build confidence in your own abilities and show that a bit of calculator common sense or spreadsheet savvy is not beyond you.

Personal Description:
I am a happy person because I love my job. I am really interested in teaching languages, using various approaches and methods as well as learning them, in particular self-learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a Language Centre for over ten years, teaching English and Russian languages at all levels. I am experienced in working with a wide range of programmes such as survival language, exam preparation, etc. and gave a great amount of individually tailored lessons as well.
I also designed and successfully taught a course on English-Russian Translation for students from British universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in order to be effective the learning process should be interesting and engaging, if possible even entertaining, but never tedious. So I try to bring in variety into my lessons and build language learning around the topics which appeal to my student.
I love working with technology and teaching in Skype using various Internet tools and resources. However, I prefer not to overwhelm my students with them and keep the focus on the language learning.

Personal Description:
I have a friendly attitude and find it easy to make people feel comfortable. I am a working artist as well as a teacher and I am passionate about my work. I have traveled extensively to exhibitions and galleries. My main interests are the impressionists and post-impressionists. I love the energy of color and I am able to teach the science of color and how it works.My main interests

Three artists who are very special to me are, Van Gogh, Cezanne and Matisse. I Love the way Cezanne carves out the 3D space using color. Van Gogh's paintings are beautiful arrays of color with wonderful patterns to create texture and physicality. Matisse can make his paintings sparkle. He knew exactly which colors to use to make his paintings explode with light.

Teaching Experience:

In the recent past I have been working as a supply teacher, chiefly because that is where there is plenty of work. I would like my work to be more art centered so art tuition would be ideal for me. I do not want to work full time as a teacher because I have my own work to do.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring would be to instill a knowledge and a love of color into my students whilst encouraging them to develop their own practices, looking at the great artists of the past as well as present day. Although a common opinion is that people are either good at drawing or not, I would disagree with this. Drawing can be taught just the same as English and Maths. I believe there is an artist inside all of us.
