I am an experienced primary school teacher and Headteacher with significant teaching expertise at KS1 and KS2. I am also a qualified SENCO and have vast experience in SEN.

Personal Description:
I have a great deal of experience in teaching students who have problems with confidence or need the academic study skills to complete assignments, projects or just pass exams.

I have 20 years experience teaching in Further and Higher Education level. I have extensive experience in private tuition at both GCSE and A Level.

My specialist area is in helping individuals to develop study skills and exam skills. Irrespective of what subject you are studying I can help you with writing skills, reading skills and research skills. I am also able to help you develop strategies to pass examinations.

I have wide ranging experience in teaching essay writing and helping students and adults of all ages to complete smaller and larger writing and research projects.

I have a PhD in history (Early Modern), but I have also taught modern history at A level and undergraduate level, this includes modern British and European history, including subjects such as The European Dictatorships, The Cold War, The Spanish Civil War and many aspects of 19th and 20th Century History. I also teach modern politics and I am conversant with the history of political and religious ideas.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified post 16 teacher and have taught a range of subjects in the humanities.

I lived for 10 years in Germany and achieved a distinction in German at undergraduate level. I have taught German for beginners and can teach up to German A level and give advice on German at undergraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a great deal of experience in tutoring students with low confidence. I can help with improving and consolidating existing knowledge and boosting confidence.

My main aim, therefore, when teaching is to build confidence and encourage students to approach their work with a positive attitude and a 'believe in yourself and you will do your best' style of approach. So the building of self confidence and self esteem is central to my teaching with all students and all ages.

Personal Description:
I am very patient in my approach and ensure that my students fully understand the topic.

It is vital to be a good listener as a tutor and to adapt your tutoring style and approach to the student, as everyone learns in different ways and what works for one may not work for another. Therefore my approach to teaching is to be flexible and to adapt my tutoring style according to what is best for each student.

Teaching Experience:

From my career history I showed that I have people skills, that I can work well with other people.

I taught Italian students aged between 12- 35 for one year while I was running my university degree.

I am Romanian mother tongue, I moved to Italy at the age of 19 to start university in Turin, and after I finished my BA in foreign languages German - English I moved to London. I was able to face many obstacles and manage to achieve my goals moving abroad (Italy, United Kingdom) .
Being a teacher means being a professional. My professional appearance will let the students know that I take the job seriously and that I am responsible.
Living in a new country United Kingdom, Italy, I am used to find myself in unexpected situations and to be flexible.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style.
I prefer focusing on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding. Where appropriate I set and mark work, giving students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.
I use questions and homework to check understanding continually.

Personal Description:
I am currently taking a gap year; having decided to change my university course (from German and History at the University of Birmingham to French and German with the Open University). I am currently considering a teaching career and would love to tutor some secondary school students.

Teaching Experience:

I have been volunteering in the Modern Foreign Languages department of my local school, Ounsdale High School, since January 2013. During my time in the classroom I am involved in marking and checking homework, answering any questions put to me by the students and doing anything else required of me by the students of the teacher. I have also been taking groups of students away from the classroom to complete tests and work on their spoken language skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I hope to provide students with a relaxed environment in which to learn.

Personal Description:
I am currently at one of the UK's leading Universities for Modern Languages: the University of Southampton and studying French and Spanish (Linguistic Studies).

I am passionate about foreign language learning and am a strong believer that through hard work and determination a solid grasp of a language can be obtained without having to live in a place where it is spoken.

I devise individual tutoring sessions as well as intensive courses upon request.

The introductory fee will be discounted from your tenth lesson.

Teaching Experience:

I have completed the UAS as a teaching assistant in A-level French classes at Barton Peveril College in Eastleigh.

I tutored both 1-1 and in class atmospheres during GCSE lessons of French and Spanish while studying towards my A-levels.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching methods must be adjusted to each individual, depending on the student's interlanguage and the level that they wish to achieve in the target language.


This can also be achieved via activities that are relevant to the individual's interests in order to maintain motivation. For example, if the student is interested in football, we will work through an article together about their favourite football player. Other activities may include: short news clips, songs and conversation in target language.


I believe that knowledge of a language entails proficiency in both productive (oral, writing) and receptive (reading, listening) areas.


Of course when appropriate, current syllabi for GCSE and A-Level students will be followed.

Personal Description:
I am a maths tutor living in Aberystwyth. I am a patient and capable communicator, and have a respectful and optimistic attitude to my students' abilities - but I expect effort and graft from them in return!

I hold a PhD ('13) in mathematics from Northwestern University, and a masters and undergraduate degree (1st class honours) from the University of Cambridge (Trinity College).

I am also a bridge mentor and writer, and commentator for international competitions.

Teaching Experience:

I was a teaching assistant in a wide variety of college level courses during six years of graduate school. I have tutored and volunteered in maths from elementary school level through high school to undergraduate level. I have also run maths-challenge style problem solving sessions in a group mentoring format.

Tutoring Approach:

I think that success in mathematics is all about balancing a sound understanding of the fundamentals, together with actively doing many examples. As a tutor, I can help explain the idea, and provide possible alternative ways to approach a problem; but the student needs to practice with examples, and then practice some more.

The student's confidence is also a big factor - in particular if the student finds it difficult to understand the current teaching. I like to encourage students to give mini-presentations to help build this confidence and frame their thoughts in a structured manner. It's also more fun that way.
