Personal Description:
Hi, everyone,The academic year is now a term old and things are ticking along nicely for almost all my students of 2016-17. Sadly two have had to drop out of school/college studies because of personal issues which is sad, when the time is right, these two very bright individuals will come back to studying, I'm sure.

I am more busy than ever this year but do have perhaps one or two spaces for students keen to just improve or to transform themselves and their fortunes. However bad things seem, I can show you how make the best of your talents.

TWO EXAM PAPER NOTICES

A couple of examination paper notices.

1. I am now OCR trained for the new AS level source/essay paper. Obviously this has given me a clear insight into how it's marked and how students need to approach it to be successful.
2. Secondly, the ED Excel Y13 A2 sources & essay paper (three secondary sources): I worked with four students on this last year and achieved spectacular results (these pupils can be contacted; some won't be able to put referees up here because I found all 4 of them via word of mouth and the UK's other major tutoring site). I'm very happy to report that I worked hard and thought hard on refining my advice on the paper and it has clearly paid off handsomely. Do contact me for details; I can pass these on to you prior to your making a decision on whether to engage me (or not as the case may be). Naturally anyone re-taking the A2 paper in 2017 can benefit from this. The new EdExcel History exam has a similar paper so this year's cohort of Y13 students should be able to benefit too.

Note. Because I'm away for the next 3 weeks carrying out research in London and Reading for my PhD I will not be able to begin lessons this year until the last week of September.

Plus:

Important policy change! If your young one or you, the student, is/are one who is not prepared to be coached and trained as our Olympic athletes are - and by this I mean that the performer puts themselves in the hands of the coach and doesn't try to tell them how to do the job - then please do not get in touch: simply pass on to another tutor somewhere else on this site.

And now, The Pitch!

So, my name is Craig, a very dedicated one-to-one tutor of History, Politics and English. I offer an exceptionally high level of expertise as a history, politics (and English) teacher, teacher of essay writing, exam writing and exam taking. This is based on well over two decades of experience in schools and in homes. Though I have been teaching a long time, I am continually striving to improve the quality of my work, constantly analyzing the effect of my advice on performance and trying to perfect the art and craft of the job.

When not tutoring, most of my time is spent working (hard!) as a student too! I am just about to begin the third year of my PhD, supervised by Professor Tony Collins of De Montfort University, Leicester, undertaking research in 20th century British history. (Rugby fans might like to note at this point that Tony is the number one rugby historian - of all codes - in the world. All his books are very well worth reading.)


I am exceptionally well qualified. I have an MA (2011) in History and am now two years into my doctoral studies. I have written fiction and non-fiction. I have had experience in being an A level marker with an exam board. I have had long experience in teaching and preparing whole History & Govnt. & Politics year groups for A level, producing outstanding results.

I take on all types of students. Some need a lot of training, some need to be dragged away from a collision-course with failure, some need finessing, some need waking up, some need inspiring, some need a boost in confidence; some need more intellectual stimulation; all can and do improve their writing.

My chief strengths are: 1. I know how to teach students to write. 2. I know how to prepare them for exams. 3. My methods are clear, simple and work beautifully. 4. I care very much about the progression of my students. 5. I treat my work with them with the utmost seriousness. 6. But I'm a human being with a sense of humour! 7. I am very, very experienced. 8. As a parent of three children who have gone through the school and university experience, I understand what both the student and the parent is going through.

I am very happy to work with students online. I have found it to work extremely well.

More on my current research project...
I am currently working on doctoral research into the BBC, sport and social class, 1922-64, with Tony Collins at De Montfort University, Leicester. He is the director of DMU's International Centre for Sports History & Culture, a department of world renown, and the leading British powerhouse of sports history. I am very proud to be working with Tony and within the department. Undergrad students should note that I am working under one of the world's best historians, a 3-time winner of the prestigious Aberdare Prize for Sports Books.

Becoming a student again, beginning with the masters degree course at De Montfort University in 2010 has really helped my teaching. As well as keeping on top of developments in academic history. I am much better read! I know more! It has also taken me right back in touch with what it feels like to be a student and all that follows from that. It has also enabled me to extend my tutoring potential to undergraduates and masters students.

I'm happily married with 3 children fully grown (it's only their father who's lagging behind).

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 24 years in secondary schools in Bromley, Kent and Derbyshire where I now live. History was my specialism but I was head of Politics for a number of years in the last part of my school career. I also taught Geography, Economics, English and R.E.

Since beginning to tutor students, I have taught history, Government & Politics and English (including basic literacy skills to a young person with dyslexia). Courses taught have mostly been those at GCSE and A level.

I have taught a wide range of topics within French, German, Russian and British history. The list includes the usual suspects: causes of World Wars 1 and 2, Hitler and the Third Reich, the French Revolution (and its causes) and Napoleon; also Tsarist Russia, the Russian revolution and Stalin as well as the European Reformation, France in the 16th century, Louis XIV and aspects of Irish and Chinese history and 19th century France, plus 20th century USA. politics (Boom and Bust, New Deal and Post-War Boom, and also the Witchcraft Persecution in Europe (1550-1680).

In terms of British history I am very much up to speed with all aspects of its 20th century political history (high politics, parties, electoral history, social history & economic history, right through to the 21st century, in fact); I have also taught most aspects of 19th history, social, economic and political. For the last decade and a half of my school-teaching career I taught the A level course in 16th and 17th century - The Tudors, James I, Charles I, Causes of the English Civil War, Charles II, James II & the Glorious Revolution, the reigns of William & Mary & Queen Anne.

I have recently added 19th century British politics (Reform Bill through Peel, Palmerston, Disraeli and Gladstone to Salisbury) and Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe to my "roster" of topics.

Since becoming a PhD student my expertise level in terms of content knowledge has leaped forward in 20th century British history. However...

...it isn't the historical content of the course that matters so much: technique is the key; know-how; how to write; how to take an exam; how to prepare for the whole exam period; how to approach the whole thing mentally, psychologically; how to be the best you can be; how to be successful - end of story!

I have worked with students on exam preparation and revision, coursework planning and execution and essay writing techniques. It is here that the battle to improve and to reach a fulfillment of potential, often with the reward of high grades, is usually won.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't tinker around the margins of issues. I give students something all those who come for help require: a method to use to dispose of the problems posed by the issue of writing that dreaded thing: the essay! Not a tinkering round the edges of the thing, a tip here, a bit of advice there, but a comprehensive yet simple and absolutely clear set of actions and principles through which the student can fulfill their potential: show the examiner what they know and understand of the topic.

Following on from the above, my approach to tutoring begins and ends with the drive to be successful. If I did not unfailingly improve students, help them to achieve the grades they want and need I would not be writing this.

In between comes what we might describe as philosophy and methods. It's hard to write about methods without immediately mentioning what I suppose might be my strongest "offer" (I don't much like that word but there, I've used it). As a schoolteacher I developed a unique but simple method of essay planning and writing that achieved stunning results. So successful has it been over 20 years that I am astonished that no one else seems to have found it. But in my experience up to February 2013 no teacher has. Essay writing is still something that many, many students find difficult and confusing. It really does not need to be this way.

Obviously content issues are hugely important and here I rely on my communication skills which have yet to let me down! These, naturally, go hand in hand with a knowledge of British and European history across a variety of years which has grown over recent years particularly through my MA studies, my PhD research and through working with students on a range of historical periods, topics and people. I find myself to be adaptable to different types of students. I am able to adapt my language and my technique to fit the situation. I am also somewhat stubborn in that I never give up on solving a problem. If we have to go over time, so be it!

Finally, some more of my personal philosophies of teaching. I believe that students generally do not achieve their potential. With each student I aim to take them to standards (and grades) that they did not think were possible. Without exception I push, push and push until we run out of time as we inevitably do. I also do not believe in lost causes. Much can be achieved in a very short space of time. I have seen this happen over and over again.

There is much more to be said but that, I hope, will do for now.

Personal Description:
I think i am able to inspire and make the lessons instructive but also fun. I think variety of pace and changes in activity ensure good progress and keep students attentive and motivated. Lots of positive encouragement and feedback on a regular basis and students should also be encouraged to feedback on their own learning and any difficulties they may have. I think I have a good sense of humour and this helps me to keep the lesson dynamic and lively and make the lessons memorable.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught over the last 27 years and my teaching has included several subjects: English as a foreign language and English (including English as a foreign language) and I have also taught primary Maths and the piano up to grade 4 . I have taught History and French at all levels and Geography and Biology up to National 5 level ( lower level) I have also taught art and design up to university level and currently provide art classes for children in my home every week.

Tutoring Approach:

I think learning takes place when students feel free to give it a go and make mistakes without any fear of negative remarks from the teacher. Good teaching is about establishing a relationship of trust with the student and customising the lessons to the needs of the pupil. A sense of humour is essential to help overcome obstacles and keep a positive atmosphere. Students should be encouraged to give regular feedback about the lessons.They should be encouraged to teach back to the teacher to demonstrate understanding and proper grading of the work should increasingly develop the students' confidence. Lessons are well organised in advance but also allow for flexibility in approach to individual students

Personal Description:
Hi there,

My name is Jean-Charles. I am a 29-year-old French male. I have been living, studying and working in the UK for more than two years. I worked as a chef two years ago, as a French assistant last year and as a trainee-teacher this year when studying the PGCE French with Spanish. I am now a qualified teacher and I work in a comprehensive school near Reading.
Before coming to the UK, I studied philosophy and French language and literature at the Université de Strasbourg. I have a very good knowledge of French literature and grammar and it has been very helpful to my past tutees.

I am easy-going and I adapt myself easily. One of my favourite hobbies is speaking foreign languages and discovering new cultures.

Teaching Experience:

In Reading:
I have been teaching French in a comprehensive school to pupils aged from 11 to 18.

In Liverpool:
I have been tutoring a mature student to improve her speaking from January 2012.
As part of my PGCE, I taught French from Y7 to Y13 and Spanish up to Y9 from October 2011 to 2012.

In Grimsby:
As a French assistant, from November 2010 to May 2011, I helped primary and secondary students with their French on a one-to-one basis, in small groups and I also taught lessons to whole classes.

In Bolton:
I taught French language -grammar and literature- to a mature-student retired from teaching from October 2009 to March 2010. (testimonial available)

In Strasbourg:
I gave lessons in French to a 16-year-old girl in Strasbourg in the summer 2010.
I also helped two primary school pupils with their homework from 2007 to 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

As I strongly believe that languages and cultures come together, I always strive to work on authentic material and I also give my tutees many opportunities to learn in out of tution context in order to develop their cultural knowledge.

However, for me the most important in teaching is to meet the needs of learners. Therefore, my priority is first of all to assess the needs of my tutees. Tutees may want to develop only some of the 4 skills: speaking, listening, reading, or writing, depending on the use they want to make of French. They also may have particular topics they want to work on, functions of their needs, projects or tastes.

This student-led approach must be carried on throughout the lessons. The role of the tutor is to maximise opportunities for the learner to discover things by themselves because this is the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn.

Last but not least, languages are interesting and fun at the same time. They develop thinking skills as well as they provide entertainment. My tutoring reflects this philosophy. This is why I always try to alternate entertainment and thinking time during the lessons.

Personal Description:
With me as your tutor, not only do you receive a first-class education in a supportive environment, but you also get the benefit of my extensive experience and ongoing research.

Last year, I completed my funded PhD on Samuel Beckett and Theodor W. Adorno at Royal Holloway, University of London. I completed my Masters study in Literature and Philosophy in September 2012, graduating with Distinction, and received a First Class Honours BA in English from Royal Holloway in 2010. Between my Undergraduate and Masters study I worked for a year as an Editorial Assistant in the Health Sciences division of Hachette UK.

I also offer a proofreading service and online tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Visiting Lecturer at Royal Holloway since September 2014 and have taught on the courses 'Modernist Literature'; 'Reorienting the Novel'; 'Inventing the Novel'; 'Fundamental Questions in Philosophy'; and 'Special Author: Samuel Beckett'. I have received excellent student feedback, with over 95% of my students agreeing that the seminars significantly furthered their knowledge. A number of the students last year identified seminars as the aspect of the course that helped them increase their knowledge and skills, with comments including 'engaging and approachable' and 'very helpful essay feedback'.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student requires entirely different strategies for the optimum level of learning. It is important for them to be taught in a positive and open environment, where they are encouraged not only to develop academically, but also to enjoy the experience of learning.

Whilst I recognise the need to cram for exams in our education system, I still believe that excellent grades can be achieved without compromising original thought and extra-curricular study.

I also offer proof-reading services if you do not require face to face tuition but only some help on a particular piece of work.

Personal Description:
I have a degree both in English and Turkish languages. I teach English and Turkish to second language speakers.I have 2 years teaching experience in Turkey and 15 years in the UK.I teach Turkish in Beginners, Intermediate,advanced and proficiency levels. The lessons are specifically prepared according to the learners' abilities as each individual is different and has different learning skills. Unfortunately fun based Turkish language resources are very limited in the market.Therefore I make my own fun resources using the same ideas in English teaching so the learners do activities that are fun and they are familiar with.

Teaching Experience:

Beginners, Turkish GCSE and above, daily conversation skills.
Professional Interpreter,Diploma in Public Service Interpreting-British Law (DPSI)
GCSE Maths and English support
SATs Maths and English support

Tutoring Approach:

I teach Turkish language as a foreign language. I have an excellent grammar knowledge both in Turkish and English which helps the learners to have a clear vision of comparing both language structures and understand the basic rules of Turkish grammar. I make my own resources and displays to make my teaching as visual and kinaesthetic as possible.

Personal Description:
I am a professional piano player with a degree in Music and Music Technology from Keele University. My work includes session playing, touring theatre shows, accompanying and teaching piano, keyboard or music theory lessons.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously worked as a piano/keyboard/music theory for Telford Music School (Jan 2010 - June 2011), teaching all ages and abilities, and I have spent the summers of 2011 and 2012 as the Theatre Assistant/Musical Director for Chateaugay Summer Camp in America. I currently offer private tutoring at pupils homes to fit in with my other professional work.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student is different and requires a different approach. I try hard to adapt for each pupil but my main concern is that they enjoy what they are playing/learning. I like to let people discover their own musical tastes and preferences while still exploring and understanding a whole range of music.

Personal Description:
I am a British teacher who has studied Mandarin Chinese for 8 years. I studied Mandarin at the University of Westminster and continued to increase my fluency in the language whilst living in China and working as a teacher. I've been a language teacher for more than 5 years in the UK, China and Italy, teaching English and Mandarin to students of all ages and levels. I am currently enrolled on a MA course in translation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a language teacher for more than 5 years, teaching Mandarin and English as a foreign language in the UK, China and Italy. I have been employed by a number of language schools in China and Italy, including "Gaoxin No.2 Primary School" in Xi'an, China, and "ispeakenglish" a private language school in Sardinia, Italy.

Tutoring Approach:

Before lessons begin, I like to communicate with students about their learning goals to discuss what they want to achieve from the lessons. The curriculum must be discussed to see what exactly students want to learn, for example if they want to study reading and writing as well as speaking and listening.

Lessons will be bilingual, with a focus on communicative skills to practice and strengthen students' knowledge of new grammar and vocabulary.

Personal Description:
Friendly and enthusiastic tutor and facilitator teaching Drama at all levels (GCSE, A Level, Degree, Auditioning for drama schools, coaching for professionals). Teaching English and Media Studies to GCSE and Film at all levels.

I am a very experienced tutor (and professional practitioner). I really enjoy working with individuals and getting them inspired about their subjects, because what examiner's really want is enthusiastic, intelligent thinkers who have their own opinion.

I have written, directed and produced many plays and films and worked extensively teaching and directing professional actors. I have had work in the Brighton and Lewes Festivals and I founded a number of theatre companies. I currently run a nationally recognised drama company that produces plays and films about social injustice and human rights issues.

Teaching Experience:

Experienced tutor and facilitator. Taught in both mainstream and special needs schools and colleges in London (Wandsworth College and the City Lit.) and for East and West Sussex Education authorities. I have run special projects for Gifted and Talented pupils for East Sussex and have run youth theatres and produced numerous theatre, film and writing projects. I taught Drama, English and creative writing to seriously ill children at St Bartholomew`s Hospital school for over five years. My work has been featured in The Times Educational Supplement.

Qualification in teaching from the City Lit., Diploma in drama from an accredited British Drama School. Trained in film at the Kensington Film Project and Brighton Film School as well as training with film director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, The Croupier).

Experienced writer and happy also to teach writing and play/screenplay writing.

Tutoring Approach:

A member of AQA and Edexcel, I work with past papers to make sure students are thoroughly prepared for examinations. I work in a person centred way so that the teaching session is focused on each student's particular needs. I create learning plans for each student. I am empathetic to learners and able to empower students, get them enthusiastic about the work and able to think for themselves.
Extensive practical experience of writing, drama; acting and directing, means I can be of particular assistance to students studying plays and novels. I have developed special resources for A Doll`s House, An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, Romeo and Juliet etc. (all GCSE and A level texts), These resources enable students to gain a deep understanding of the text and to know how to approach exam questions.

Some feedback from my students August 2015:

"Dear Will, I just wanted to let you know how brilliantly he did in his exams! He got the well deserved A in drama, an A* in English and a C in Biology. Warwick required AAB but A*AC is the equivalent and they have confirmed his place for September 2016.
Thank you for all your help and support.

"We're thrilled, she got an A! thanks so much"

"Good news. She secured a B overall in her Drama A2 as a result of a B in her written paper - it was this B which in fact secured her place at Southampton. So the exercise of resitting the written exam was well worth it and your input made all the difference, so huge thanks from us both".

"Just to let you know he got B in both Drama and Film. He is really pleased and only 3 marks of an A overall!! so thanks for all the help and I hope we can do some more work this year.
