Personal Description:
A full member of the Tutors Association, I have much tuition, coaching and training experience; both one-to-one and in groups.
Holding several relevant academic qualifications (including a degree in Maths & Physics), I am also a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Scientist, full Corporate Member of the Institute of Physics.
During my career, I have held several senior management positions within several British based companies.
Having a fundamental love of virtually all things mathematical and scientific, I very much enjoy passing on this enthusiasm & knowledge to 'A' Level students, with the aim of enhancing their skills & boosting examination performance.
I hold full and current enhanced DBS accreditation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been offering 'A' Level tuition in Maths & Physics since 1997
The vast majority of students with whom I have worked have either achieved, or surpassed, their target grades.
During the last academic year (2013/2014)) I was pleased to work regularly (typically weekly) with fourteen 'A' Level Maths students, three 'A' Level Physics students, one student studying Electrical Engineering, and one studying Maths with the Open University.

Tutoring Approach:

Being an active participant in, and supporter of, the whole education process, I have also held a four year LEA Governorship at a school in mid-Devon.
My approach to tutoring is, first of all, to talk openly with any potential student (ideally with parent or guardian present) in order to find out what is required, the problems, issues etc.
I treat all students as adults, and do not patronise or talk down to them, ie I treat each one as a mature individual. My aim is to work closely with each student, in the way that best suits him/her, in order to empower him/her with higher levels of knowledge and ability. The result being that their confidence and skill levels increase to those necessary to achieve the best possible exam grades. I encourage my students to actively participate in the tutoring process; to challenge, and to ask questions and discuss all aspects of the work content.
I coach all my students in exam techniques, with emphasis on layout, showing working, best use of time etc.
Last, but certainly not least, I believe it to be of fundamental importance to work with all my students in complete confidence; before, during and after any tutoring involvement.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher with 23 years experience working in schools in Eastbourne. My main subject is Art (I have a degree in ceramics) so much of my teaching is through creative, visual, practical and kinaesthetic teaching whereby my pupils enjoy their lessons and are enthused into a love of learning. I am also involved in the Eastbourne Art scene and paint at home when I get the chance. I am friendly, fair and holistic in my approach . I have two children (15 and 17) whom I try and fit my work around and feel I could offer a positive tutoring experience to children and their families in this area of teaching. I can also offer English tuition for those who may have English as an additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified in 1993 with a post graduate certificate in education after having been a self employed potter in Bristol exhibiting my ceramics. I have co-ordinated Art, Maths and played an active role in early years play and learning with all the necessary knowledge of the primary curriculum including the Foundation Stage. I have taught many children with E.A.L. and have a sound knowledge of special needs teaching using methods such as Makaton signing and Widgit symbols to enhance children's understanding. I would use the Numicon system to support primary maths and am familiar with Key Stage 1 and 2 age range as this is what I have taught mostly over the last few years. I am familiar with SATS and have been on many courses over the years on all subjects. I particularly enjoy history, art and maths and could teach very basic French too. I have recently trained to be a specialist language teacher and visit schools across the county.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in encouragement, boosting self esteem and making tutoring interesting, as I have seen what boredom, frustration and poor engagement can do to young children. They need to be switched on and confident in what they do in order to achieve. I always start at a level a child can succeed in and am aware that sometimes you have to change your approach depending on the child. I have a bank of subject and topic ideas suitable for this age range and have been able to think on my toes over the years.

I am a retired lecturer from Sri Lanka, and I have been teaching Economics, Business Studies and marketing in Schools (Edexcel Specifications), Academic levels and professional levels in Sri Lanka.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 15 years of teaching experience (Lecturing). The theories what I have studied and have been teaching is universal. When I teach any subjects mentioned above, I always quote UK examples and also world examples and refers to UK case studies where its appropriate. Over the past few years I have prepared many students successfully in Economics and business studies In AQA, Ed excel and OCR specifications. In any syllabus specification the theories are same,
Home visits are possible with in 15 miles from SM6 area and can consider other areas with prior negotiations.

Tutoring Approach:

I follow the syllabus provided by the exam board, to teach each topic. Then I go through past papers, explain how to answer the questions. I expect students to do the papers at home and give to me for marking. I go through their answers and explain how to answer the questions. My teaching approach is, first I assess the student's current knowledge regarding the subject and thereafter I pitch accordingly. I use simple language and current examples in explaining the theories and concepts. Also I give and discuss past papers with the student and guide them in the correct method in answering a question. I give home work from selected past papers. I prepare a simplified handout for every lesson and this handout is the final reading material for the examination. Sometimes I dictate short notes during the lesson and my teaching sessions are interactive, where the students are encouraged to ask questions and express their current knowledge about the subject. At present there are number of satisfied students. I am unable to disclose their identities with out prior permission from them. My first lesson is free of charge. So that the student will have a chance to judge my approaches to teaching, subject knowledge, my mannerism etc.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of both Spanish and English (raised and educated in Spain by English parents and educated to university level in the UK) with experience tutoring. I am culturally as well as linguistically fluent in both English and Spanish, as well as well-read in both. I have studied French to university level and Art to A-level, already having a preexisting understanding of art due to both my parents being professional artists and amateur art historians themselves. Being a tutor in languages and literature, I am very skilled with language and linguistics and am able to teach a variety of writing styles.
I have tutored a variety of students across my subjects, from preschool children needing an introduction to Spanish to adult learners seeking to improve their English, to students who wanted to better their written communication.

Teaching Experience:

I have accumulated 3 years of private tutoring so far, I have worked as part of a Cardiff-based tutoring company and I have worked on a part-time basis with several companies (including a law firm) translating documents and letters.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a variety of courses at different levels and for a range of skills.

For languages:
-A basic lesson-plan for young children (2-5), where they learn through games and immersion.
-A more structured plan for children of primary-school age, where they learn grammar and structure in a traditional approach, still kept fun.
-A support course for students studying Spanish for GCSE or A-level. This is appropriate for both students who need to catch-up and students who have the potential to progress faster.
-A brief support course for students approaching their exams, to ensure they are confident in the subject. I am very familiar with these exams as I have taken them myself (obviously achieving A*s).
-A beginners' course for all ages.
-An intermediate course for all ages.
-An advanced course for all ages.
-A fast-track course in Spanish for travelers and tourists.
-And a conversational course for those seeking to improve their pronunciation, fluency and ease of speech.

For literacy/writing skills:
-A beginners' course for all ages.
-An intermediate course for all ages.
-An advanced course for all ages.
-A business course.
-A students' course.
-A creative writing course.

For art:
-A skills-based course for beginners.
-An intermediate skills-based course.
-An art history and skills-based course.
-A support course for GCSE or A-level students of Art.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Oviedo with a BA in Spanish and another in English. I obtained my qualified teacher status in Spain via a Posgraduate course and when coming to the UK I obtained the validation of QTS for overseas trained teachers.

I am currently finishing a second master´s degree in the UK with a view to continuing to PhD in the near future.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in Secondary Schools both in Spain and the UK.

I also have experience as a private tutor for adults and young adults in both countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tailor the class to the specific needs and tastes of the student - specially the former is usually dismissed in class practices, but I believe in the importance of creating personal bonds with the area of study, which in the case of languages enables the student to digest and comprehend the new information in a different way. I personally vouch for after classes activities such as reading and watching films in the original language as a subtle but strong foundation for language proficiency.

Regarding classroom techniques, I believe in a combination of the Communicative Approach and more traditional techniques - I have access to abundant and varied resources for various levels. I am also keen on informal speaking classes for those willing to learn or improve their language away from the tiranny of grammar.

I have some experience preparing for various exams: GCSE, A-Levels and DELE.

I additionally offer specialised support for those studying Spanish at University level - which often implies a further understanding of the cultural and historical elements beyond the language. As a philologist, I can also offer support in more technical aspects such as linguistics (historical, biological and grammatical), phonetics and especially literature, my field of expertise. Contact me for details in that respect.

I offer assistance in writing essays in Spanish - correcting spelling and grammatical inaccuracies.

Personal Description:
I am now a Ph.D student in University of Birmingham, studying Corpus Linguistics (about language teaching). Before coming to UK, I was a teacher in a Chinese university for seven years. And in my spare time, I also taught some foreigners (most of them were adults) the Mandarin either in training programs or on the face to face basis. So I am full of teaching experience and good at tutoring the Chinese language from the basic level to higher level (from the basics, like pinyin, tones, etc. to some cultural things). Actually, I am quite enthusiastic about my teaching jobs, and hoping to spread and share the Chinese language and Chinese culture with more people.

Teaching Experience:

1. I was a university English teacher for seven years, and I have taught listening, reading, writing, speaking, as well as translation and English linguistics.
2. I got the certificate (IMCPI) to teach Mandarin, and I taught some foreign students (including adults and middle school students) from the basic level to higher level. Mainly, I helped them learn the basic and practical communication ways, such as speaking and listening (and after these lessons, they became more confident and communicate more freely with native Chinese); and more specifically I taught one business Chinese class (as a part-time interpreter for an Imp/Exp Chinese company, I am familiar with the business fields and know what the foreign students like to learn). I believe that practical, effective and productive teaching and learning approaches would benefit my students a lot, and by which the learners could get hold of another new language in an easy and relaxed way.

Tutoring Approach:

1. Communicative language teaching and learning
2. Face to face
3. Online

Personal Description:
In October 2014 I graduated from Imperial College London, where I spent 4 years studying for my Masters Degree in MSci Mathematics. I have a big passion for learning and this is a trait I want to be able to pass on to other children. Currently, I am working as an Analytic Consultant in Birmingham, which helps to demonstrate the strong analytical and communication skills that I possess.

Teaching Experience:

During Secondary School I ran a Maths Club once a week where I set problems and puzzles for all students. Furthermore, I was a Chess Coach teaching chess to primary school children and in Imperial College I held sessions with 1st Year students aiding their transition between school and university.

Thus, I have had experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities, which will help me to adapt my approach based on the student.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I aim to pass on my passion for Mathematics onto my students, developing their understanding and appreciation for the subject. In my opinion this is the best way to learn as ideas become easier to remember and concepts become quicker to grasp, which will transpose into better grades and examination performances.

Overall, I bring an enthusiastic and approachable atmosphere to my sessions, where students are not afraid to ask questions. This will enhance their learning experience and again improve exam results.

Personal Description:
I`m a 4th year Physics student at the University of Glasgow. I`m originally from London where I achieved an A* in Physics and an A in Mathematics at 18. Since then I`ve been an undergraduate at the University and consistently achieved 1st Class grades throughout all my classes.

Teaching Experience:

I have a 2 years experience of tutoring in London where my 3 students all achieved their desired grades. I also helped compile revision resources for the A-Level Physics class for my school which, to the best of my knowledge, are still in use. My course entails components centered around communication of concepts and peer assessment which I have done well in and would aid me in tutoring. I have also recently completed a summer internship with the university helping to develop teaching resources for some of the university courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to initially understand the problem areas the student has and then build these areas up to a reasonable standard of competency through a combination of explanations including written and oral demonstrations, videos and, later, problems. Once the core theory understanding of the various areas of the subject are firm I work on building the student's problem solving skills which are key to passing exams. This is done mainly through solving problems and past exam questions. In my experience, I have found this method to be the most successful in allowing the student to pass and excel in their exams as well as enriching their understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
I grew up in south-west London, in Twickenham, before attending Tiffin School (Kingston-Upon-Thames) and Cambridge University, where I was awarded my BA (Hons) degree in History of Art. I have always engaged with extracurricular activities with enthusiasm, something which my educational institutions have given me ample opportunity to do.

My main passion has been acting. It has provided many opportunities to meet and get to know a huge range of different people, all in a challenging, intense environment. Fundamentally, it is the opportunity to engage with the perspective of another person and to attempt to embody this in actions and speech. It requires a performer to listen to and work with others on stage, and to work within a flexible, productive relationship - this is essential for any student-teacher relationship, as a dialogue begins to emerge.

My other interests have similarly complemented my academic pursuits: I have played rugby union for 14 years, up to and including university level, and used to play the french horn in the school orchestra. Both activities gave me an opportunity to voice my individual contribution to the group whilst working within a team, invaluable experience for academic discussion as well as confidence in many other areas of life. They offer different approaches to problem solving and develop some of the broader skills essential for academic success, such as self-expression, articulation, flexibility and confidence.

My experience includes working with primary school students (age 4-6), through a voluntary program at secondary school. This involved helping children to learn to read. The weekly session required empathy and flexibility on my part, demanding an understanding that each child`s ability was completely unique, and that my approach needed to be modified to fit each person. In particular, I had to cultivate patience and a desire to listen and to understand everything the child was saying.

Whilst at university I also participated in a student run mentoring scheme, which gave unprivileged children the opportunity to understand life and work at Cambridge. It was a fascinating opportunity to understand some of the social and personal blocks to academic confidence, as well as offering ways in which these problems might be developed and overcome. Most importantly, it was a joyful experience to be able to help a younger person, and to understand that they were a unique person with their own approach to problems and solutions. By listening to him, I gradually learnt the ways in which they best communicated and how I could use those situations to our advantage as a student-teacher pair.

More recently, I have participated in a student-run university theatre tour which also comprised educational workshops. These workshops were a much bigger part of the tour than we had originally thought, and proved to be challenging at times. This was partly from the language barrier (many classes spoke little to no English, and were often too embarrassed to speak at all), but also from the unpredictable nature of the students. We had to work on our feet, employing what resources we had in a way which was meaningful, cumulative and ultimately led to an end. Our exercises required an overall structure and an ultimate purpose, but we also wanted to adjust this according to their reactions. Though I initially found this challenging, towards the end of the tour I could take charge of workshops and lead them with ease.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching and intellectual discussion have always been an important part of my family life, and it is an activity which I enjoy on a personal as well as professional level. My time at university has developed my ability to think in this way, as well as providing an environment in which I was surrounded by these kinds of discussion, with both professors and students. The emphasis on close-contact supervision periods at Cambridge taught me the importance of helping each student understand their individual form of expression.

I would avoid didactic repetition and seek to challenge the student and invite them to contribute. As well as work done outside the tutoring time period, I would encourage tasks such as presentations and prepared discussions as much as possible. I believe this work lays an essential base for passionate intellectual discussion, and it is something which certainly helped me in my university interview.

Coupled with this development of interest in particular subject areas, I would try to help the student's method of arguing and offer sustained, constructive advice on how that might be more effective. A university candidate is only as successful as their ability to communicate effectively and succinctly, something which may require exercises as different as confidence building or syntax and grammar. But as well as this self-belief and self expression, the student would need to acknowledge that academic (and educational) progress can be achieved by listening to others and attempting to understand their point of view. This dialogic aspect is essential to my tutoring approach.
