Personal Description:
An experienced examiner. Graduated in Chemistry (BSc) before completing an MSc in Analytical Chemistry, I have been tutoring A-level Chemistry for 10 years. I started tutoring during my PhD studies and have continued ever since. In addition to this I have been marking A-level Chemistry papers for the last 5 years. (AS Organic, Foundation and practical modules). When I was studying in Liverpool, I helped up to 8 students at a time but will be limiting numbers this year. I generally try to make more time available in the run-up to exam season so I might be able to accommodate more.

Teaching Experience:

Approximately 30 students over the last 10 years.

10 Years of marking A-level Chemistry papers.

Tutoring Approach:

This will vary from student to student and the target grades. I am happy to negotiate the approach and pace with the student but do insist on studying around their specific syllabus and like to include exam technique and practise where I can.

I can work through the syllabus from begining to end, last minute cram sessions or limit the tutoring to specific problem areas.

Personal Description:
An enthusiastic and out going Latin American Spanish teacher from Argentina with a passion for helping others improve their language skills! - Especially Spanish

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Spanish as a foreign language in Argentina and UK for a couple of years.
_________________________________
In addition to languages I also teach drama and free expression for beginners and would be actors. A great technique to learn if you want to build personal confidence in every aspect of life - from delivering business presentations to building personal friendships.

Tutoring Approach:

I design the classes depending on the student needs. Normally my classes include:
________________________________
Regular classes with a careful mix of 25% listening, 25% oral, 25% reading and 25% writing skills all of which can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of the student. The classes use a range of techniques and games and inevitably have special homework assignments!

Conversation classes: In these the student and I develop special themes (for college, work or just for fun!) and use those "themes" to help build grammar and vocabulary. The conversation classes are dynamic, full of games, and involve a little bit of acting - what better way to out your language skills into practice!

Special classes: In these we handle a wide range of "real life" activities, from watching a movie, going to the supermarket, visiting a park and learning how to tango!
________________________________
The lessons can range from an hour to a whole day - so the classes can fit around your social, school and business life. So now there is no excuse in not getting going!

Personal Description:
I am a secondary Head of Music in North London, living in Hertfordshire, with a first class Music degree from the University of Oxford.

I have six years of teaching and tutoring experience for both AQA and Edexcel GCSE exams, and Edexcel AS and A Level. I teach and play the clarinet and piano, as well as having studied music theory, history and various other aspects of music to a very high level.

I am happy to tutor school-age pupils to help with their classroom work, GCSEs and A-Levels, and also teach music theory in preparation for ABRSM examinations. I am also a teacher of clarinet for all ages, up to grade 8 standard, and of piano up to grade 6 standard.

Teaching Experience:

- Currently working as a Head of Music in North London, teaching students aged 11-18.

- I have taught for six years at a range of secondary schools, working as both a classroom teacher and as an instrumental and vocal teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to first help pupils work through problems with their existing school work, in order to patch up any difficulties that they are currently having, then to additionally teach them extra things in order to keep their interest in the subject.

I would expect pupils to complete an amount of homework each week, depending on their existing workload, in order to help them to make progress.

Personal Description:
I am a very experienced and successful tutor of English and Maths. I did an English degree at Cambridge, a PGCE at Nottingham, and then worked as an English and Drama teacher for 10 years, latterly as Head of Department. I have worked in educational and children's television since then, as a producer, director and writer. I have made over 500 programmes for broadcast on the BBC, Channel 4, and around the world, winning numerous educational awards in the UK and internationally. I am married with two children.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in and near London, for four years in a grammar school and for six years in two different comprehensives, teaching English Language and Literature, and Drama.
My teaching experience more recently has been through creating television scripts, CD-ROMs and websites, especially helping young people to enjoy and learn maths. Supporting my daughter through her GCSEs and A levels has kept me very much in touch with students' needs, and working with my son has given me great insight into children with special needs.
I am currently tutoring twenty two students, ranging in age from seven to seventeen.

Tutoring Approach:

I help children, young people and adults learn through motivating them and building their confidence. I aim to make learning thorough, clear, enjoyable and inspirational; to make obscure things interesting, complex things simple, and dull things entertaining. Learning should be purposeful and fun.

Reviews:
I contacted Chris because my son was struggling with his Maths and he was taking his GCSE in June. He needed someone to spend time with him to understand what his challenges were and to then explain and coach in a way he understood. Chris delivered this and more. He not only gave my son the technical knowledge on the areas he found difficult he showed him he was capable and built his confidence no end. He even went through how to approach the exam which proved invaluable on the day!
Chris came to our rescue at very short notice and really did put himself out and made sure my son had as much time as he could with him before his GCSE which showed Chris really cares about his students and that was very important to me.
I can't recommend Chris highly enough, he obviously knows his subjects and understands how to engage with students so they understand and learn which means they go into the exam in a position where they can do their absolute best. And as a parent that's all we can ask!
TB, Horsham: GCSE Maths

Chris is brilliant. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for extra tuition.
TS, Brockham: GCSE English Language, English Literature and Maths

Thank you so much for tutoring my son in KS3 English this year. You have given him much more confidence and his results have greatly improved. Best of all, he has really enjoyed coming to the sessions, so the improvement hasn't been gained at the cost of losing his love of reading and writing.
AR, Abinger: KS3 English Language and Literature

Very approachable and flexible on times. Professional approach and followed up each visit with an email on work covered/areas to study.
AB, Surrey: English Language and Literature

Thank you so much for helping our son. His teachers predicted B's at GCSE so you can imagine his surprise and delight when he got A*s in both GCSE English papers - not to mention the confidence boost. I know this was only achieved because of your teaching skills, patience, understanding & getting to know exactly how he ticked and what worked for him.
KW, Reigate: GCSE English and English Language and Literature

Really nice person, my girls think he's cool and are enjoying learning time with him
PB, Surrey: KS2 and KS3 English and Mathematics

I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson that I had with Chris and my only regret is that I had to finish due to other commitments. Having lessons with Chris not only extinguished anxieties I had around reading and writing but also reignited my passion for English Literature. He takes great interest in his students teaching with a non-judgemental approach, with bags of creativity, energy and passion for his subjects. I felt valued, understood and constantly encouraged and praised.
JC, Capel: Adult Learner, English Language and Literature

Chris's tutoring allowed me to gain confidence and realization in myself. Using understandable and valuable techniques in essay planning and writing which I used to pass my A Levels and continue to use at University!
AW, Surrey: A level English Literature

We were lucky to find Chris two years ago to help with our son's English when he moved from India to the UK. My son was overwhelmed with the change of the system in his early days but the personal touch offered by Chris made a huge difference in boosting his confidence. Chris quickly identified my son's weak areas and systematically worked with him in improving all aspects of his language skills.

What had started as a summer coaching for a few weeks went on for the next two years which turned out to be a great learning experience. It is needless to say that my son couldn't have achieved 'A' grades in both GCSE English language and Literature subjects without the professional tutoring delivered by Chris. We can't thank Chris enough for giving us much more than what we asked for.
VT, Fetcham: GCSE English Language and Literature

Chris has taken teaching as it gives him joy to see the young generation perform and improve. To him, it is like a hobby that he loves and not just a profession. I thought it was a bit difficult to change my son's attitude towards learning. Now when Chris is not there, my son really feels there is something missing. My son is now enjoying learning his most difficult subject. We can not really thank Chris enough.
MA, Horsham: GCSE English Language and Literature

Chris was very patient and positive/supportive with a somewhat reluctant 16 year old boy, and really helped him progress and also gain confidence with his maths and English. Chris has a very good understanding of the exam and education system and was keen to know exactly what my son was working on and what help he could provide, tailored to the exam texts etc. He was calm and patient and my son responded well to this, and even when tired after a day at school would try hard at the tutoring session. A very supportive positive approach. Highly recommended.

Personal Description:
After a career as a Communications Manager and having finished my PhD, I'm determined to commit myself completely to my professional vocation and teach Spanish as a foreign language full-time

I have a profound awareness of the language as a journalist, and specific training in public speaking in Spanish.

I recently completed the Specialist Training Course in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language given by the Department of Spanish and E/LE Teacher Training of International House Madrid.

Teaching Experience:

My experience as a teacher started 35 years ago, in 1981, when I obtained the Spanish Teaching Certificate for High School Education. From that time, I've been working continuously, full-time, part-time or voluntarily, as a teacher or tutor.

Throughout my professional life I've provided a great deal of private tuition in Spanish language in Madrid, Leeds and Edinburgh, and have worked as an assistant teacher in Spanish at several public high schools.

I've delivered over 350 courses to a wide range of organizations.

Tutoring Approach:

The best way to learn a language is to see it in context and have a necessity to use it. That is why I use as much as possible real people as my listening resources and expect my students to interact with other native speakers. My courses comprise theory classes where I look at listening, speaking and learning skills as well as increasing vocabulary; and cultural activities where those skills can be put into action.

The anonymous reviews by my students have been consistently very good, citing my knowledge, teaching methods, classroom organisation, willingness to learn new skills, and enthusiasm as highlights of the courses.

  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi everyone, I am originally from Turkey and have lived in England since 2005. I can speak fluent Italian, English and I am native Turkish speaker. I am an Italian High School graduate and I have a first class honours degree from Liverpool John Moores University in FineArt in 2012. Beside my fine art practice I work as private tutor in Italian and Turkish.

Teaching Experience:

I have six years of experience in private tutoring, I teach Italian and Turkish.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy teaching very much and for me it's very important to see each student as an individual and understand his or her unique needs, learning style, social and cultural background, interest, personality and abilities. All this information helps me to become successful in teaching. Languages are based on sound and they all have different melodies and rhythms, so in some of my classes I use music and melody to teach my students. I teach at my premises or I can come to your home to teach and I am also available for online teaching. My classes lasts 1 or 1.5 hours depending on the student. This can be discussed at the first meeting and a bespoke programme designed around the students individual needs and requirements.

Personal Description:
As a Geographer, my love of the subject has kept me in the classroom for a long time. I am a middle manager with experience of both the English and Scottish school systems. My interest and experience lies in the planning and organization of fieldwork, which has seen me leading groups to a wide variety of UK locations from London to Orkney and abroad to places as far flung as South Africa and the USA as well as regular trips to the continent.
Outwith work, I am a creative sort, making and selling cards, interior designing properties and enjoying visiting new places for inspiration. I offer a spare room to international staff and students so enjoy hosting and meeting new people.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a Curriculum Team Leader - CTL of Geography. I am a qualified Geography teacher of nearly 17 years. I am a qualified Citizenship teacher and have also taught this for 15 years.
My experience is at all secondary levels with most experience at GCSE level. I currently teach Geography at all secondary levels and participate in termly Citizenship enhancement days for students.
I also have a great deal of experience in the teaching of Travel and Tourism which I taught for 10 years and History and RE which have been on and off my timetable over the years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning is satisfying in itself and this is something which many students have yet to discover. My aim in teaching is for my students to enjoy the process of learning, to learn to take control of their own education and to take pride in their learning and achievements.

In tutoring sessions, I follow a very structured approach:

- In our first session I take an overview of the aims and needs of my student and together we prepare a plan for our time together.
- In each of our lessons we cover a topic of work, discuss and try to solve any problems with work from the student's school/ college and agree on the next week's reading and topic. We also take five minutes to review our progress, referring to our initial plan, and discuss any changes that need to be made to the plan.

Personal Description:
I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, with a Master's degree in Research Psychology (cum laude), a research Doctorate from the University of Oxford, and an ongoing second doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy. I also have a special Chartership with the British Psychological Society in the Division of Academics, Researchers and Teachers of Psychology. During my working life, I have written or contributed to a number of peer reviewed publications in the the fields of critical theory, research methods, psychology and development studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught psychology, social theory, philosophy and research methods at a number of universities, including Cambridge and Oxford. This formal teaching ranged from undergraduate to masters level, and even included some thesis supervision. In addition, I have experience of training outside of the academic context, including the military, government, and corporate contexts.

Tutoring Approach:

I see learning as more than just memorising knowledge, or getting through an exam. As a result, I prefer to work with people who want to gain a deeper understanding of issues, and who find meaning in locating knowledge in a broader framework of wellbeing.
