Personal Description:
For 25 years of work in education I've gained rich experience which I want to share with those who need my guidance and assistance. As a participant of professional exchange programs, member of Educators' organizations, volunteer in international projects I have studied new teaching methods and use them at my lessons combining the most advanced pedagogical ideas with the best achievements of traditional education.

Teaching Experience:

Work as a Teacher at schools, University, Education centre since 1991

Gave lessons in English language for junior and senior students
Conducted classes of the English language courses
Tutor in English and Russian for the group of students and individuals
Participation in international exchange programs for Language Teachers

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching has always been my passion and ,perhaps, my life mission.
I like to work with groups of students in the classroom. But tutoring has more advantages for individual approach to each student, and consequently, higher results in studying any subject. I try to tailor my lessons in accordance with everyone's abilities, priorities, interests and tastes.

Personal Description:
I am a 29 year old English Language and Literature graduate. I am currently an editor at an international legal journal and have professional writing, proof-reading and sub-editing experience. I have been writing for publication since the age of 17 and am a confident tutor in acdemic and commercial writing.

I have a a first class degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Leeds, with additional honours in History and Philosophy. I have in depth knowledge of English, Irish and American literature, from Old English to the 21st century, encompassing poetry, prose and drama. I am also familiar with classical Greek and Roman literature and thought, Christian theology and philosophy, and 20th century critical and cultural theory.

Drawing on my professional experience, I am able to offer guidance and support to aspiring journalists - both in the execution of their research and writing and in their entry into the industry.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored young people of secondary school age on an informal basis since I began university. While at university I also coached my peers on essay writing, presentations and personal statements for job applications. I have experience working with special needs, in particular Down's Syndrome.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe strongly in the relevance of the individual in an educational setting, and as such I do not have a catch all "approach". I enjoy getting to know what works for different people in different contexts, and supporting them on that basis.

Personal Description:
I have 20 years of experience in publishing as a writer and editor and am passionate about nurturing English language skills and a love of English literature. I graduated from the University of Stirling with an honours degree in English Literature and have also taught English as a foreign language. My experience in publishing has trained me to write concisely and economically while retaining an imaginative grasp on a piece of work, a skill invaluable in writing essays and examination answers; and especially useful in assisting students with the new written assessments that, in Higher English, comprise 20 per cent of the final examination mark.

I can empathise with students who are tussling with English, relish improving a person's understanding and enjoyment of the subject and take satisfaction from helping to develop their abilities not only in the practical sense of improving their powers of analysis and understanding of texts but in helping them think imaginatively and creatively. As a personal tutor, I have a proven record of upgrading students' performances, especially at Higher level, and have, in several instances, improved so dramatically pupils who were on course to fail Higher English that they went on to achieve an 'A' grade in their Higher examination.

Teaching Experience:

I have three years' tutoring experience. In 2012, 65 per cent of my tutees for Higher English achieved an 'A' grade, with several Band 1s among them. In the 2013 Higher English examination, 75 per cent of my tutees obtained either an A or a B, with slightly more than half of those obtaining an A and several obtaining a distinction in doing so. In 2012 and 2013, all of my tutees at Standard Grade achieved either a band 1 or a Band 2. Similarly, in 2014, all National 5 students achieved an A or a B. At Higher, in 2014, 85 per cent of tutees achieved an A or a B, with the remainder, several of whom had been struggling severely, delighted to have achieved a pass.

With my help, tutees have obtained the vital English qualification that was essential to them obtaining a place at such universities as: Cambridge, Oxford, Aberdeen, Dundee, St Andrews, Heriot-Watt, Edinburgh, Stirling, Strathclyde and Glasgow and the Glasgow College of Art.

I also have experience teaching English as a Foreign Language, in Egypt, both in private schools and tutoring young people on an individual basis.

In publishing, I was frequently chosen to tutor new entrants to the profession because of my precise use of language and empathetic nature on a one-to-one level.

I studied English Literature to honours level at the University of Stirling and aim to pass on my love of the subject to students through establishing a rapport with them and recommending to them the type of literature that would complement their learning and enable them to derive pleasure from studying English.

Tutoring Approach:

On first meeting, I will discuss with the student how they wish to improve and which aspects of their English studies they feel require greatest attention. I will adapt tutorials to suit the student's needs and course of study. Additional exercises and study guides will be developed together, so that the student can participate with enthusiasm and purpose in the tutorials. This allows me to work to the student's strengths, to help them manage their problem areas more effectively and to derive greater enjoyment from the subject. I will adopt a measured approach and will use my communication skills to ensure that the student understands and absorbs each aspect of the lesson before progressing to the next stage. I aim to make lessons pleasurable and fun as a means of making learning easier, enjoyable and more memorable.

Personal Description:
I'm a Research Fellow at Cranfield University. I found Chemistry very difficult at High School and have worked hard over the last 8 years studying the science, in the process of gaining my Honours degree and Doctorate, to improve my understanding but I honestly still find it difficult at times. I have a huge amount of enthusiasm for my science and find myself reading Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy in my spare time as well as watching countless lectures and home made videos from other scientists on YouTube.

Teaching Experience:

I have very little experience tutoring outside my family. I have tutored my siblings and some of my cousins but my experience is quite limited. I'm confident that this is compensated by my energy and knowledge of my field, I love what I do and revel in helping people understand it with me.

Professionally I have worked with many masters students and tutored them on some more advanced aspects of Chemistry such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and practical Organic Chemistry.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually try to work with images first to help the student picture what we are trying to learn. I find that once a student has a working model or analogy in their head it is much easier to advance and increase their understanding eventually leading to the removal of the analogy.

I find that exercises are useful to build a strong memory of facts and figures associated with the science. I don't believe in learning by rote (although it will pass most exams) if you are interested in a sound understanding of a theory or subject. Any tutoring that I provide will be tailored to the student's particular preference in learning style.

Personal Description:
I am a (young!) 50 year old woman and my degree is in Mathematics. I am, at present, working part-time in a school judged to be outstanding by OFSTED.

Teaching Experience:

I have 15 years' teaching experience of mathematics, mainly up to GCSE level but have also taught on a 1:1 basis as a home tutor. I have taught adults and children from the age of 5. My main experience is at secondary level in the UK but I have also worked for a number of years in the USA and Australia. I have also worked for a number of years in the primary sector before qualifying as a teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach to students and am happy to work as an individual tutor and also to a small group. I have found home tutoring to be extremely rewarding and enjoy seeing the progress that students make. Once lessons begin, I am more than happy to be contacted by students via email as part of the agreement. I am happy to teach all ages from young children to adults who require maths tuition for work or personal development.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in Mathematical Economics from the University of Birmingham and a Chartered Management Accountant. I worked in finance for about twenty years and have been a governor in primary and secondary schools for many years before deciding to enter the teaching profession. I have been on the GTP training course for Secondary Mathematics at London South Bank University. I am the Instructor of the Kumon Study Centre in Eltham and do one-to-one tutoring in mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have 30 students on the Kumon maths programme at my study centre in Eltham. I individually tutor maths students from key stage 2 at primary school right through to A level. I also tutor statistics at GCSE, AS and A2 level. References are available on request.

Tutoring Approach:

There are many reasons why parents decide to appoint a tutor for their child. I will discuss your requirements in detail with you to ensure your child's tuition is tailored to them. Some pupils find the transfer from primary to secondary schooling problematic. I can explain the underlying mathematical concepts and to show them how to tackle questions so that they can get into the higher maths set for Key Stage 3 and GCSE. For older pupils I will build their confidence by presenting topics in a variety of ways and improving their exam techniques.
If one hour is too long for your child, I can arrange 30 or 45 minute slots. I will travel up to 5 miles from Sidcup.

Personal Description:
I live in Central Scotland with my husband and two daughters, ages 9 and 5.

I graduated from the University of Stirling with BA (Hons) in German and History. During my time at University I worked as an Au-Pair in Bavaria, Germany looking after two young children in their home. I also spent a semester at the Univerity of Cologne which was required for my degree. After graduating I worked for IBM Germany in Greenock and then IBM Austria, working closely with IBM business partners in these countries and using my German language skills on a daily basis. I have also had the opportunity to travel in Austria.

Since secondary school, the German language has fascinated me and I thoroughly enjoy speaking, reading and listening to it. I loved the time I spent in both Germany and Austria and am always keen to return. It is a wonderful experience to able to learn about another county's people, their culture, the history and geography etc.

I am keen to inspire others to share my passion which has derived from being able to learn and use another language.

I currently work as a childminder and am a consultant with The Pampered Chef. These career choices enable me to be at home for my family.

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of experience working with children. As well as having 2 children of my own and working as a childminder, I help out at the local Brownie unit and coach the primary school Netball team. I understand the importance of patience with children of all ages and I have good listening skills. I treat every child as an individual and use praise and encouragement at all times.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring will provide me with the opportunity to combine my love of German with my passion for teaching children (and adults if they are keen). I am happy to teach younger children and to help prepare older children for their standard grade and higher exams. I have a wide range of teaching resources at my disposal to be able to reinforce what is being taught at school. I will concentrate on all aspects of oral and written German paying particular attention to grammar, punctuation, pronunciation and spelling. I believe variety is important and will change topics and themes accordingly to engage the student and hold their interest and enthusiasm. Student feedback will be sought regularly and used to help me plan the best way to meet their needs during their time with me.

Personal Description:
Bonjour,

My name is Julie and I am a native French speaker. I was born and raised in the French speaking part of Belgium and lived in France for a couple months. I am currently a doctoral student in Ancient History at Oxford University. I hold a Master of Arts in History from the Université Libre de Bruxelles and a Master of Arts in Classics from Stanford University, USA.

Passionate about the mechanics of language, I am also proficient in Dutch, Latin, Greek and currently learning Modern Greek. In my spare time I like doing improvisational comedy, traveling, yoga and running.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring French for a year in Oxford, for all levels from primary school to adult casual learners.

The results achieved so far are very positive. My beginners students are able to speak basic French from scratch, and my A-levels students achieved very good results at their examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

My line of approach is that one learns a lot more when they enjoy learning. Hence, I am using a lot of different teaching strategies to make you enjoy the class while learning durably French grammar and vocab. Usually, the lessons are divided in two parts: one more focused on the rules (grammar, conjugation) and the other on practice with readings and discussions about French and francophone culture, role plays, listening to an intervention or music lyrics, etc. Then again, this will depend on your needs and current level.

I am flexible regarding the schedule of the class and content of the teaching, which means that we can spend time focussing on something that you particularly want to learn or practice.

Most importantly, I value progress at the right pace: I want to make sure the class fits your level and that you feel that you are evolving from class to class. Whatever your goal is, we will reach it together. Beginners to advanced students in French are more then welcome. All is tailored to the tutee's needs.

*** Teaching will resume in mid-September ***

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in BSc Accounting and Finance from the London School of Economics external degree programme where I studied under a full scholarship for four years. I am committed to becoming an expert in the field of Economics and Mathematics and currently tutoring full-time before going to study MSc Economics at LSE starting September 2015.

Outside of university and in addition to tutoring I work as a swimming instructor teaching pupils aged 2 to 40+ in groups and on a 1:1 basis. I teach at private residence and specific leisure centres and have been in this role since 2009 and have thoroughly enjoyed it I also find it a nice complement to tutoring.

Recreationally I swim up to three times per week and play five- a - side fortnightly a remnant of my more sporting days as a school and college student. During that time I competed on many sports teams including Rugby, Hockey, Water Polo and Cricket.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Mathematics and Economics tutor for 4 years in this time my reliability and skill has enabled me to develop a good reputation which has allowed me to have a consistent base of 15 - 20 students on a weekly basis.

I have tutored university students attending Russell group universities such as Queen Mary and Warwick and have taught GCSEs and A-levels across all major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and iGCSE. Additionally I have had students admitted to prestigious private schools such as Eltham College and Bromley High after excelling in their 11+ exams.

Career Highlights!

- Academic Year 2011 - 2012 I helped a student who was predicted a C grade at GCSE to achieve a coveted place at Eltham College after passing a difficult 16+ exam, we then continued to work together to secure an A grade at GCSE

- Academic year 2012 - 2013 I helped a student who scored a D grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 level after 8 months of tuition. He was the only student to score an A grade in his school since 2007.

- Academic Year 2013 - 2014 I helped a student who scored a C grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 Economics with an impressive 97% in Unit 1, 99% in Unit 2 and 100% in Unit 3. He had also had three previous tutors who he was dissatisfied with before coming to me.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach embodies a long term approach to learning I teach students in a way which will allow them to be successful in higher education as well as their more short term exams. I also try to make students more confident in their abilities overall not just the material I teach.

I strongly believe that a solid understanding of basic principles is the foundation to success in academic study. I concentrate a lot of time and energy on instilling these basic principles in students.

I am also a strong believer in understanding over 'rope learning' I ensure that pupils understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, never encouraging them to simply regurgitate what they have seen previously.

I also encourage practical understanding of concepts frequently referencing real world examples and using objects to illustrate theory as I recognise that theory on its own given no relevance is harder to remember. Supplementary to this I also relate teaching material to potential job roles and tasks which I have knowledge of (mostly Banking or Business related) in order communicate usefulness to students and keep things interesting.

Finally I believe teaching successfully is ultimately about listening to your students I constantly encourage students to question things and express anything they don't understand or are not too sure of. If a student looks unsure or hesitant about something I will ask open questions or get them to explain concepts to me in order to fully grasp their understanding. This also helps build their confidence and ability to express themselves accurately.
