In addition, I hold two previous degrees: a Masters degree in Public Health (MPH) and a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) double major in Biology and Biochemistry. I am also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Public Health.

Originally from the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean , I have been schooled both in British and American format educational systems. I find teaching personally rewarding and have been doing so on a part time basis for about ten years.

Teaching Experience:

> Tutored undergraduate level university courses and medical level courses for the Department of Educational Services at St. Georges University.

> Tutored undergraduate level courses for the Department of Life Sciences at the University of the West Indies.

Tutoring Approach:

The object of teaching a person is to enable them to get along without a teacher. Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915)

Although flexible, I find it optimally beneficial to utilise an informal learning environment to deliver an individually tailored, mutually agreed upon programme designed to meet the educational goals of the tutee.

Personal Description:
My name is Michael and my students usually call me Mickey. I am a qualified Maths and Mandarin teacher.I have finished my master degree from University of Southampton with distinction, PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics)) from King's College London and I also finished my undergraduate study with first class degree from University of Southampton as well. I was working as trader assistant ( yellow jacket ) in a top bank before changing to become a maths teacher. I have over six years experience in primary, entrance exam, GCSE and A-Level maths tutoring. I am always passionate for tutoring and I know how to make students' learning process enjoyable. My strong reputation has been built on my ability to improve my students' varying skills, ability and exam skills. I have unrivaled patience and understanding and I am able to bring the best maths tutoring experience to my students. I also have set up my own website with helpful maths resources for my students.

In 2011, I attended 3rd Mandarin Teacher Training which was held by Chinese government in London and I have also gained Qualified Mandarin Teaching Certification which was awarded and admitted by both Chinese and British government. (Original Copy on request). I am also a member of British Mathematical Association (BMA), London Mathematical Society (LMS), Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM).

For your peace of mind ,I am also Enhanced DBS checked ,I will bring my Enhanced DBS check certificate at the first lesson.

Teaching Experience:

Currently I am working as a Maths and Mandarin teacher in a college. I am also working with many Tutoring Agencies as five star rated tutor like Top Tutors,Galaxies Learning and Delta Tutors. Unlike other tutors, I only teach limited number of students to ensure quality. My A-Level students successfully entered top universities like LSE, Warwick University, Imperial College and other elite Russell Group universities. Other students successfully got through entrance examination to top independent schools like City of London School, North London Collegiate School, Channing School and Merchant Taylors' School.

Education:

King's College London
Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics) (PGCE)

University of Southampton
MSc. in Accounting and Finance (Distinction)

University of Southampton
BSc. in Accounting and Finance (First Class)

Tutoring Approach:

Quality is everything for me. Apart from the highest teaching quality I am pursuing, my rate is also competitive as I was a student, I know how important it is to have someone to help at reasonable price. However, the normal rate is usually high. For me, I only charge reasonable price.

Recent International Student Assessment (ISA) shows that Chinese students ranked best in the world at maths ( UK is ranked 28th for maths, Source: google "Shanghai students ranked best in the world at maths and science", The Telegraph). As British Chinese, I can tell you the secret of Chinese learning maths. I have a unique method of tutoring which can be adapted whatever the skill level and also unique exam techniques. But my first objective is to target my students' enthusiasm for the subject so they will be passionate to learn mathematics. Practice is also essential for learning maths, but a good tutor knows how to design different questions for effective practice. Finally,I usually believe that learning is a continuing process and if I am honored to be your tutor, I can not only help you learn the knowledge, but also master the art of learning until one day, you will be able to help others like I do.

I am a French Tutor who holds a French honours degree from the University of Hull. I used to live and study in Lyon, where I became fluent in written and spoken French.

Teaching Experience:

One of my recent pupils said:

"Megan is an excellent tutor and has given me more confidence in my written and spoken French."

Tutoring Approach:

In the first lesson I will assess the tutee's ability and level of the written and spoken language.

I will hold the lessons from my home in the West End of Lincoln, and am available evenings from Monday to Thursday evenings and all day Saturday. There is parking available outside my house.

I'm offering lessons to:
1. Primary school pupils (6-11 years of age)

Personal Description:
I graduated from Worcester College, Oxford, where I got a Double First in Classics, doing a mixture of literature, history and especially focusing on philosophy. I am now studying at City Law School for the Graduate Diploma in Law (Law conversion course) and hope to practise as a barrister when I qualify.

I am enthusiastic and hard-working and I strongly believe in putting all my effort into what I do, so as a tutor I would work hard to try and help bring real improvement.

I was captain of one of my college football teams and also love playing cricket (though perhaps more keen than talented in both of the above!) I was Co-Chair of the Oxford University Labour Club and an elected official at the Student Union, and I also enjoy playing the piano and guitar.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a number of people via UK tutors in several subjects. I have also been a voluntary leader on summer camp, which included organizing detailed discussion sessions, and I tutored my sister for her successful Cambridge Philosophy application.

Tutoring Approach:

I would try and keep things as relaxed and informal as possible so the sessions are good fun and try to listen as well as talk so that we can focus on what needs to be worked on and tailor the sessions to individual needs. I think students often underperform not through lack of intelligence but lack of engagement and I would try and find a way to help them enjoy the classes and boost their self-esteem. I love all the subjects I tutor and I'd hope to inject that into my classes!

Personal Description:
I am a methodical and encouraging tutor, with a deep desire to translate my passion and learned skills in the field of mathematics to my tutees.

My primary school years were spent at St Martin's Preparatory School, my secondary school and sixth form years at the Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School and this year I have graduated from university having read Actuarial Science and Mathematics. I have consistently attained top marks in Mathematics exams including grade A* in GCSE, grade A in A-Level and earning a gold award in the Senior Mathematics Challenge which is only achieved by the top 6-7% of entrants.

Despite me lacking in the years of experience held by elder tutors, I possess in my opinion a more beneficial strength in that I have very recent first hand exposure in preparing, undertaking and exceling in the UK education system Mathematics examinations. This gives me an edge as I can transfer methods I have utilised to succeed in these exams and have a greater ability to empathise with their specific learning needs.

Teaching Experience:

Tutored Mathematics to undergraduates during university and have built experience dealing with youngsters whilst volunteering at a children's blind school and aiding my younger sibling of age 9 with various homework.

Having graduated and now living back at home I am currently building a client base in Northwood specialising in tutoring school children in need of improved grades, help with exam preparation and a desire to develop their knowledge and understanding in the fascinating subject of Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor from home which is in a very convenient location for nearby schools, being just a 2 minute walk from St Helens School and also in close proximity to Northwood Underground station. I can also travel to you if you live in Northwood.

The first lesson will always involve understanding the intended aims of the lessons from the perspective of the students/parents whether it is improving grades, working through homework assignments or exam preparation, to allow for me to structure future classes appropriately. I will also gage what the current ability level of the student is.

I teach with the philosophy that to understand maths means being able to do maths and ultimately doing maths is being able to solve mathematical problems. With unique goals of the specific student in mind the lessons will be centred on firstly understanding the mathematical theory. Then the greatest proportion of the classes will be spent applying the knowledge and techniques learned on attempting problems whilst correcting errors and explaining areas of difficulty along the way. After guiding students through problems, similar problems will be repeated until the topic is understood thoroughly.

In addition to 1 to 1 tuition as per the prices quoted below, I also offer classes for groups of 2-4 students. The prices for these classes are as follows;

2 students -25 per student per hour
3/4 students - 20 per student per hour

The classes should be self-organised and most preferably consist of friends from the same school studying the same syllabus. This is to ensure the presence of an engaging and cooperative learning environment. My reasons for offering small group learning sessions stem from an article I read which discusses its benefits for the students detailing how it provides for a forum in which students can raise issues others may not have considered, discuss ideas, deepen understanding by persuading others by the logic of their arguments (and the benefits continue)etc. Also from an economical perspective it is cheaper without sacrificing on the effectiveness of the learning experience, and more enjoyable for the children as they attend with their peers. I would highly recommend thinking about this option when considering tutoring for your child.

Personal Description:
My name is Alex and I am currently a student at Durham University, having have just completed my first year studying Economics.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst employed as a guitar and drum tutor for two years I gained experience of teaching GCSE and A level aged children either in small groups or individually. I understand the importance of building rapport to motivate the individual, clear communication, regular checking to ensure they are learning and plenty of practice, particularly in how to answer exam questions well. Recently having completed my GCSEs and A levels gives me an advantage over most tutors as I know what the exam boards are currently looking for in candidates.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on your child's needs. For example if they need teaching topics for the first time I will explain topics clearly with examples whereas if your child has been taught a topic at school I will help strengthen their understanding through practice. I have an easy going manner and am very positive as I understand how important confidence in order to learn.

Please note that at A level Maths I teach Core 1 (the first module that everyone who studies A level Maths has to do) in detail to ensure a strong grounding for other modules.

I have a car so am willing to travel.

I understand the importance of pupil and tutor being able to build rapport and work together so I offer the first tutoring session free. I will also feedback to parents on a regular basis if this is required.

Please note I am at university during the following dates:

12th January 2015 - 13th March 2015
1th April 2015 - (approximately) 6th June 2015

However, outside of these dates I am available at any time, any day of the week.
