I offer Mathematics throughout primary and secondary school to GCSE.I have experience of working in both school and college, though now prefer to concentrate my efforts on 'private tuition' in which I have had considerable success and find stimulating and rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I am educated to degree standard with a recognised teaching qualification, specialising in Mathematics. I offer Mathematics throughout primary and secondary school to GCSE.I have experience of working in both school and college, though now prefer to concentrate my efforts on 'private tuition' in which I have had considerable success and find stimulating and rewarding. I am fully conversant with the Maths syllabus throughout primary and secondary school and aim to pass this knowledge on to the pupil in a supportive atmosphere, tailoring lessons to the needs of the individual pupil. Several years of experience in Teaching BTEC L3 Engineering.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially find the level of student then according to his/her ability explain go through a couple of examples. Then set task for the pupil any difficulty rectify on the spot. At the end of lesson set home work. If students have a particular difficulty then explain and go through a couple of examples together.

Personal Description:
3 years ago, UK postgraduate study enhanced my skills in both English and Chinese. I've been a professional translator and Mandarin teacher for years, so I'm very confident to be a private tutor and make sure you will reach your goal : )

I'm based in London and working as a translator/project manager. In my spare time (weekends/public holidays), I'm very glad to help those foreign friends with their Mandarin.

Please contact me if any needs/questions.

Teaching Experience:

In 2009, I taught English to preschool students in China. I learned a lot from it, how to communicate with my students, how to achieve their aims and how to deal with their difficulties.

In 2010, I taught two adult foreigners Mandarin Chinese at home via msn and emails. Although they were in the same age group, they had different needs, so I varied my teaching approach. One preferred to learn Chinese culture, so I taught him the history of Chinese festivals and general grammar; the other wanted to learn everyday expressions, so I taught him day-to-day language in terms of various circumstances, such as useful phrases in greetings, at the store, at the restaurant, at the airport and travelling etc.

Last year, I gave one-to-one Mandarin Chinese courses which are specially designed for the students particular needs.

We can have a discussion about your goal first, then we will arrange the time slot for your own course.

Please kindly note that my lessons are only available on weekends and the whole weekdays from 17th Dec. - 21st Dec. 2012

Let's speak Mandarin!!

Tutoring Approach:

First, I need to know my tutees' aims for learning Chinese (e.g. for travelling to China or for personal interests, etc.) so that I can design a way of studying for you that can make the process of learning more effective and interesting.

secondly, I will combine formal teaching content (pinyin, grammar, characters) with interesting informal teaching approaches (learning words and phrases from songs/movies or going to a Chinese restaurant to learn the names of dishes).

You will have fun learning Chinese!

Personal Description:
It is a pleasure for me to offer you the best of my competence and experience in the field of teaching languages.
My major strengths are: getting right to transmit my knowledge to the students, organization to elaborate the lesson plans to achieve the best class activities, patient with those pupils that have some difficulties in the learning of languages. I usually apply pedagogical techniques and dynamic activities according to the student's skills, I also, respect and value the effort my students do to learn and to get good grades. I can say that I have always been enthusiastic about teaching, so it encourages me to study modern languages in a Pedagogical University.
I have been living in Birmingham since July 2010, and my Entry Clearance visa entitles me to work immediately as well as my National Insurance Card. In the same way I hold the UK NARIC National Recognition of my degree as British Bachelor Degree Standard and the GCSE (grades A-C) Credit Standard on a subject for subject basis.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with primary students in some schools, moreover with high school levels, and besides with university students. Likewise I have worked as a teacher with adult people in Language academies.
My relevant work experience is:
Venezuelan School, I and II primary levels. January to November 2009 Venezuela. Cela Spanish School, Spanish . August to December 2008 Venezuela. University of East (UDO), Semester I.

Personal Description:
Experienced tutor for A-level and Degree Chemistry. Throughout my academic and research career I have developed a passion for chemistry and teaching and have been extensively involved in the tutoring and mentoring of students across a range of levels over many years. I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Bristol in addition to a 1st Class Masters Degree in Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh. I am currently employed as a Senior Research Scientist in the North East with responsibilities including the training and mentoring of chemistry undergraduate students from a range of Universities.

Teaching Experience:

My passion for teaching started during my PhD where I taught practical and theoretical chemistry to numerous undergraduates, with particular focus on 1st year students struggling with key concepts to guide them through exams. Since then, I have continued to teach and mentor chemistry across a range of levels with particular focus on helping A-Level chemistry students struggling to get the grips with key concepts.

Tutoring Approach:

I adopt a systematic and logical approach to teaching using 'real-life' examples and models where ever possible to aid the students understanding and visualisation of the problems. This approach not only assists their immediate understanding of the subject, but come exam time, also helps them to identify the correct answer to the problems in front of them. I am available most evenings for tuition, so please feel free to contact me for more information or a quick chat.

Personal Description:
I am a cheerful and thorough teacher, as an ex Army Officer I maintain the highest standards and attention to detail in all my work. I am passionate about mathematics which is why I retrained as a maths teacher several years ago.

Teaching Experience:

I am in my fifth year of Teaching, which has involved teaching in both the state and independent sector. I am currently teaching 11- 18 year olds across the range of abilities.
As well as teaching children, I have also successfully tutored trainee teachers to pass their QTS numeracy tests.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient teacher, I strive to find the point at which pupils understanding fades. I am able to link mathematical concepts to real life examples that they are familiar with, in order to help pupils progress. My background in engineering helps me to explain the relevance of mathematics.

View Richard's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a freelance software developer and professional trainer who also provides one-to-one personal tuition services in computing, programming and IT related subjects. I took my first steps in programming as long ago as 1981, and have been a professional software developer since 1987. Along with the teaching and training side of my career, I develop software and web-sites for my clients, and I have been published several times in respected programming-journals.

I am also a BBC preferred-supplier, and am a Professional member of the Association for Computing Machinery (founded in 1947 - the world's largest and most prestigious scientific and educational computing society).

Teaching Experience:

I have provided private-tuition services since 1992, and was a lecturer at Roehampton University from September 1998 to October 1999. I have provided professional training services since 1999, during which time I have delivered over 100 professional courses in programming and software design and development, for companies in the aircraft industry, computer gaming, banking, web development and the BBC.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching and training pivots on the most important factor - passion for one's subject. I attempt to demonstrate to the student the power and beauty of what computing and programming involves, and place a firm emphasis on explaining concepts in the simplest and most day-to-day terms.

In the sphere of private tuition for children and young adults, I have found that working through past exam-papers with the pupil or student is an extremely effective way of helping the individual's understanding and exam performance to improve.

In the sphere of the professional training I provide, clients cite frequently my passion for the subject, the original and clear explanations that I use, and the depth of my technical understanding, as the factors of note in their view of my services.

Personal Description:
I am a tutor of maths and physics. I mostly teach A-level and university but sometimes I teach GCSE. This is done online via a virtual classroom (WizIQ). I have taught students between the ages of 15 and 26 from a wide range of backgrounds with a wide range of abilities and am fully CRB checked. Depending on the student's requirements, I can also teach introductory computer programming, specifically Python and Fortran.

I am based in the Coventry/Kenilworth area doing my PhD in Plasma Physics at Warwick University. Most my tutoring is done using the WizIQ virtual classroom and Skype. This means I can teach students anywhere in the country from anywhere in the world (and indeed I do). I can also offer face to face tutoring either at your home if you live within cycling distance of me, or on Saturdays in my office at the university of Warwick.

As well as my PhD studies, I am also working towards a post-graduate teaching qualification which I expect to obtain this year. It is worth a sixth of a masters degree, and will grant me associate fellow membership to the higher education academy.

In addition to this, I am also studying level one Japanese and have a fondness for languages in general.

Teaching Experience:

Testimonials:

Luke - I am thankful to Ben for always encouraging me to learn more and work hard! I used to be scared of taking a maths test but thanks to Ben I can take a test without worry. Ben is very good at explaining things when you don't understand them. In my opinion if you struggle with maths Ben is the best tutor to teach and support you!

Kathy - Having Ben as a tutor for my son gave him the confidence in this subject, and he was a completely different person when his GCSE came round. He now has a great attitude toward his Maths subject, and this was all down to Ben and his tutoring.

Dean - Ben was able to improve my mathematics skills in a short space of time when my job was overcasting my University work. He changed his schedule around me and tutored me late at night to get me through my exams. He has a solid understanding of mathematics and physics and importantly, he can break it down and make it easier to digest without hesitation. He has always gone the extra mile and I have started enjoying mathematics thanks to his tuition. Highly recommended.

Sanjay - I found Ben extremely proactive yet flexible and understanding at the same time. Authentic and genuine are some of the words that suitably describes Ben. All that with plenty of humour too makes Ben a highly desirable tutor!

Tutoring Approach:

I find teaching extremely enjoyable, not only is it very rewarding to see students make progress, but it also keeps me sharp when doing my own physics research! I like to be quite informal with my tutoring, as I find this helps to re-enforce the knowledge they have learned in the school classroom. I tutor at the pace the student requires, before each lesson starts I will have spoken with the student and decided what I'd like for them to achieve in the lesson. If the student should happen to struggle on a particular topic however, I would devote more time to that.

I have recently started to get involved tutoring students who would like to take their GCSE or A-level exams earlier, and have not yet been taught the subject/s in a classroom. My awareness of all GCSE and A-level syllabi makes this possible, as I can create detailed, structured learning programs to facilitate the student's independent learning.

I also have a wealth of experience teaching Maths and Physics to early year undergraduate university students, particularly those taking summer resit exams that are in need of a "crash course".

A detailed C.V and a scanned copy of my CRB certificate is available upon request.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, professional, patient and successful private tutor. I have a BA in History (1st Class) and a Masters in Medieval Studies (Distinction); a course jointly run by the History and English departments at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Aside from Higher Education I have 10 GCSE's A-C (including English Language (A), English Literature (A), History (B), Latin, Science and Maths). I obtained 4 A Levels in English Language, History, Psychology and General Studies as well as an AS Level in Law.

Teaching Experience:

I have a strong amount of teaching and tutoring experience - across a range of levels in both English and History:

- KS2 English
- KS3 English
- ALAN
- GCSE English Language and Literature
- As/A Level English Language, Literature and History
- Higher Education History and Academic Writing

Fortunately these have been very successful, and I have been consistently able to improve client results. Over time I have seen that the areas I am able to impact most are essay writing and exam techniques.

I also work full-time in the recruitment field and, as a result, have been able to offer help with University Personal Statements, College Applications and CV and Interview techniques, should this be required.

Previous feedback:

From Michelle (5/5): (GCSE English) "Fantastic Teacher, she is everything you could ask of an English tutor. We are so glad we found her."

From Vivien (5/5): (A-Level History) "My daughter is receiving excellent help and guidance from Rachel with both English and History AS work."

From Samantha (5/5): (GCSE English) "First Tutors helped us to find Rachel , she has helped our daughter with her English and given her alot more confidence. Rachel is very easy to talk to and get along with putting students at easy. I can't thank Rachel enough, for her help and support."

From Lynn (5/5): (A-Level History) "Rachel has been an excellent tutor for my daughter Harriet and has helped her to gain confidence and understanding in her English and History A Level course. We have been very pleased with the attention to detail and enthusiasm that Rachel gives to the subject in a relaxed and personable manner. I would highly recommend Rachel as a Tutor."

From Adam (5/5): (GCSE English) "We cant recommend Rachel strongly enough. When we first sought her help, our son was coasting through school, under-performing in English and showing no interest in changing it. With her help just once a week, he is now up to a B average - an of course this has a positive effect on so many other subjects where good English skills are required (history, RE etc). If only she covered the maths & sciences too!"

From Libby (5/5): (GCSE English) "Rachel is a very good tutor, working with my son at his speed. She has given him ideas to look at and explore in his English GCSE. I am hopeful that through her help Sam will do well this year. Sam engages with her too which is really important."

From Carol (5/5): (Secondary English) "David felt very relaxed and comfortable during his lessons with Rachel. She had put a lot of thought into them and fully addressed the problems he is having at school. After 6 lessons he already feels more confident in presenting his work in the way it is required by the school. He left each lesson feeling very positive. He will be continuing his lessons with Rachel."

From Clare (5/5): (Secondary English) "We have been extremely pleased with Rachel's tutoring. Rachel has understood Bronti's needs and taught her the correct level of English. Rachel makes the lessons interesting, whilst also challenging in a way that isn't obvious to Bronti."

From Sue (5/5): (A-Level English) "Dear Rachel, Thank you very much for all the help you have given Alex so far with her AS studies, in particular English and essay writing. She is becoming much more confident and positive about approaching homework tasks and felt she coped well with her first exam today due to the preparation sessions with you over the Xmas holidays. Compared to when she started I would say she is much happier now about her English studies, which is great. I am delighted with the change in her motivation and she is very keen to continue working with you on improving her essay writing techniques. Once again many thanks"

Tutoring Approach:

I practice what I preach - and I believe that this comes across in my tutoring. I absolutely love learning and studying. I am an enthusiastic person who genuinely wants to help people achieve their potential in their desired field and take great pride in the successes my clients have achieved after sessions with me.

Sessions are relaxed and informal; I create a friendly environment where people want to learn and feel comfortable doing so. I try to be as flexible as possible; I am happy to ramp up the sessions in the run up to exams, but also to scale back during quieter periods and also change days/times on an ad hoc basis. I encourage my tutees to contact me outside of sessions if they ever need any help - you don't have to wait a whole week to speak to me again!

There is, however, a formal element to learning and I do expect commitment and homework will be set on a regular basis (as long as there is capacity alongside school/college/university commitments).

It's not a case of 'one size fits all' and I enjoy working with my clients to help them to understand their best style of learning and to adapt my teaching style as required. Sessions with me can often mean going through past papers and helping with homework to fun quizzes and games!

On the whole, my aim would be not only to teach, but to inspire my tutees and instill a sense of confidence in their own abilities.

Personal Description:
My native language is Spanish Latin-American but lived in Spain for 11 years, so I can speak both kinds fluently and good grammatical

Teaching Experience:

This is my fist time as a tutor but I have worked like Au-pair in Germany and Spain, with child and I was like a teacher because we share the languages in differents activities, plays, singing, with Homeworks etc.
Other experiences in leisure time in summer, in the holidays with friends and his families, or the babysitter.
I like to do activities for teaching new vocabulary, go to the park

Tutoring Approach:

Consider important to learn and practice a language in a form very practical and simple. Personally I try to teach in this way because we can remember better the grammatic when we are in a dairy situation and enjoy together.
