Personal Description:
Hello,
I have just completed my PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at UEA. I also have an MA (Distinction) in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, and a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature. I gained straight Firsts in every module I studied. I also have a good Fine Art degree from Chelsea College of Art and Design. I have been a private tutor for twelve years, and have taught many children in that time.

I am currently tutoring in the North London area, including Tottenham and Enfield. I am also offering Creative Writing courses for children in the Sutton area during the school holidays.

I'm a 41 year old lady, and am an aunt, godmother and childminder to several children.

I would also like to offer the tutoring services of my colleague, who will also be working in the Tottenham area. His specialist area is history, that is, 15th century history onwards, with special knowledge of 17th, 19th and 20th century British history. He is fully able to provide support with GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate syllabuses, with a BA Hons and an MA in Political History.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at undergraduate level at university as well as writing skills in an academic skills centre. I have also taught SATs to thirteen year olds. I have a PTTLs degree level 4 qualification and taught on an Access Course to adult learners. For GCSE, I have a 75 per cent success rate of my students achieving As and A*s. My other students, whose first language may not be English, achieve Bs.

I have taught AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL syllabuses at GCSE and AQA at A-Level.

Please note that I do not teach any Eleven-Plus or verbal reasoning syllabuses and that I prefer to teach older children (13 plus)

Tutoring Approach:

I use creative writing exercises with my students to allow them to develop their writing skills, as well as their creativity and imagination. This approach has been very successful with my SATs pupils. I also use past exam papers, model essays, and devote time and attention to close reading of set texts at GCSE and A-Level. I have also recently branched out into giving art lessons and I helped out at an arts and crafts club at the local school.

I can also provide Skype lessons and find this has been successful with older and university level students.

I have a friendly, professional approach and find I develop a real rapport with my pupils, who find their results and confidence improving with my tutelage.

Personal Description:
An experienced and friendly female tutor with many years experience of teaching mathematics at all levels and one to one tutoring with excellent results. As an exam marker I have a good idea of what is expected in final exams and have a keen ability of giving confidence and encouraging my students to achieve to the best of their ability. Have current CRB certificate.
I am an experienced and friendly maths tutor with many years experience of teaching mathematics at all levels (Nationals, Highers, GCSE, HEFC, HN and A-Level) and private tutoring with excellent results. As an examination marker I have a good idea of what is expected in the final exams. In particular I use strategies to increase my students' confidence and learning skills so they become independent learners using their problem solving skills under exam condition. I endeavour to encourage my students to try and achieve to the best of their ability. I have a valid and current CRB certificate obtained by my employer

Teaching Experience:

Over 20 years of teaching, lecturing, one to one tutoring and many happy and successful students. Even those who did not really like maths in class, often stop me in the street comment on how much they have benefited from their mathematical learning, use it in their part time job or it has lead to a good career, or they are just happy to be able to do a monthly budget.
One of the signs of a good tuition is the returning customer and i have had the joy of teaching siblings from the same family for several years.

Tutoring Approach:

'There are two good things in life' according to S Poisson: 'learning maths and teaching maths'. Of course a little extreme, but i would say that enabling someone else to develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as using and applying this ability to solve equations and carry out complex calculations, for me are some of the most exciting aspects of maths tutoring. The approach i incorporate into all my teaching is to enthuse, motivate and empower my students, so they develop a deep understanding of mathematical processes and thereby learn the skills needed for each particular topic. I also incorporate puzzles and interactive resources into my lessons.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I was born in Germany to British parents and lived there for 8 years before coming over to the UK to live. I also spent a total of 2 further years over there in Southern and Northern Germany after my A Levels and during my undergraduate degree to further my knowledge, working for OSRAM GmbH and studying at the Freie Universitšt Berlin.

Teaching Experience:

I graduated with a degree in German and Drama, with First Class Honours, in July 2010, from Queen Mary, University of London and have just completed a PGCE (Secondary) in Modern Foreign Languages (German with French), at the Institute of Education, University of London, also gaining QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) from the GTCE (General Teaching Council for England).

I am familiar with the National Curriculum at the Secondary level for Key Stages 3/4/5 - Year 7 through to Year 13, and will tailor tuition to suit individual needs, allowing for development in German language skills, as well as preparation for public examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly 1-2-1 tuition supporting development in German language skills, tailored to individual needs. National Curriculum at Key Stages 3/4/5 can be followed as well as key examination preparation to boost confidence and performance.

Currently offering sessions on a Saturday/Sunday @ £40p/h

Personal Description:
I moved from Henley-on-Thames to Bampton in October 2011. In 2012, I worked three days a week in an independent girls' school in Exeter, providing one-to-one support for a girl in Year 9 and also taught English Literature to Year 7 & Year 13 classes.

I have a passion for the written word and its performance in poetry and drama.

I am a mother with three grown-up children and a grandmother, and very interested in how young people view and contribute to the world in which they live.

I have an MA (with Merit) in Postcolonial Studies from SOAS, University of London (2015) and a First Class Honours BA degree in English and Classics from the University of Reading (1996).

I can offer lessons in my home in Bampton or online via email and Skype. Skype has proved to be a highly successful way of teaching and I now teach across the globe using this medium,

Teaching Experience:

In addition to working in a school in Exeter (outlined above), I have been a highly successful English tutor for many years, originally based in the South-East. Most of my client base is private but I also work for two top London tuition agencies. I am a highly experienced tutor and currently have students in English Language & Literature from KS1 to 'A' level/IB. I also work with undergraduates & postgraduates in various disciplines, providing guidance in the structure of their essays, particularly dissertations, and academic writing. Additionally, in 2014/15 I tutored the complete AQA GCSE Classical Civilisation syllabus to a Year 9 student via Skype, who obtained an A as her final grade.

I also have experience in helping adults with their business English and have written marketing copy for the commercial sector.

Tutoring Approach:

When I tutor a student, I search for a 'tailor-made' way to help increase their self-esteem and confidence. This enhances the learning they already receive in the classroom. The study of texts offers student and tutor alike not only an opportunity to develop communication one with another but also insight into the life experiences of others, both in past generations and the wider world today.

I have helped numerous students to achieve higher than their predicted grades at both GCSE, IB and 'A' level and have many excellent references available. My students have come from the public, private and state school sectors and with varying levels of academic ability.

Personal Description:
Art and design has been the love of my life since early childhood. Being able to express oneself creatively and with imagination has always been my primary source of independence and happiness. Apart from that, i am also attentive to creative sparks and fires in the people around me, enjoying when the potential is given the chance to be fulfilled. Plus, i am thoughtful and hard working, with a light-hearted and empathic attitude towards people i work with. I am a bit of a connector, a bit of a maven, a bit of a geek and i always wear a sunscreen. I have studied Art and Design in Latvia and in London, have an Interior Design diploma and a degree in Product Design, strong drawing skills, sane knowledge of a range of arts materials, software skills and a spirit for safe experiments.

Teaching Experience:

Sustainable Opportunities Workshop 2011, in collaboration with British Council - designing the workshop and facilitating it.
Private arts tutor for life drawing and modeling, 2007-currently.
Learning Resources Assistant in University of Arts London, advising on materials and software (Adobe CS; Rhino; Solidworks for beginners) 2009-currently.
Arts tutor and group supervisor in Children Summer Camp, ages 6-16. 2007.

Tutoring Approach:

The best tutors in my life have been the strictest ones, with high demands and set standards. I have learned from them well and would aim for the same level of aspiration they have given me. But in addition, my strongest belief is that the best teacher is the one who understands the way his student works and learns and acts accordingly, being an inspirational teacher. Ages 6-99 can all benefit from expression through the different forms of art. First of all I would discuss the needs and desires of stakeholders and form a brief, which would include:
Desired outcomes
Program to reach them
Sourcing materials - what materials are needed
Timetable
Location

Then, we would be set for starting the learning and revealing the wonders of life and ourselves.

Personal Description:
I have been a Biology teacher for 37 years. I am now retired and living with my wife in Hartland in North Devon.
We have four adult children.
I have taught in state schools and independent schools in UK and at International Schools in Africa and the Middle East. During my teaching career I have been Head of Biology for twelve years.
I have always enjoyed studying Biology and I like to think that I can pass my enthusiasm for the subject on to my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in UK for 19 years:
Twelve years at the Radclyffe School in Oldham, two years at St John Rigby Sixth Form College in Wigan and nearly five years at Shebbear College in North Devon where I was Head of Biology.
I have taught at International Schools for 18 years. All the institutions followed the British Curriculum:
One year at Barewa College, Zaria in Nigeria and one year at Seepapitso Secondary School in Botswana.
Nearly six years in Kenya at Hillcrest Secondary School, Nairobi where I was also the Head of Boarding.
Three years at Muscat Private School in Oman, two years as Head of Science at the British School of Alexandria, and three years at the Modern English School in Cairo as Head of Biology.
I completed my overseas teaching as Head of Biology at Al Khor International School in Qatar where I taught for two years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always enjoyed studying and teaching Biology which has effectively been my lifetime's work. I have extensive experience of teaching students from many different educational backgrounds and I have always been able to relate to my students and nurture an enthusiasm for the subject. As a tutor I would aim to make my lessons enjoyable but rigorous and I will always try my best to boost the confidence of my tutees. If students begin to enjoy the subject they will gain confidence and the examinations will then seem less daunting.
Whenever I tutor I will always incorporate the use of a computer into the learning process. I like to refer to animations and short video clips which greatly enhance the learning process. The on-line resources can then be used by my tutees to reinforce their understanding, as well as researching new material.

Subjects

  • GCSE or Standards (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a 46 year old father of four children, the oldest having just left University. As a father of four I have a lot of experience in knowing how to motivate children and how to develop the necessary skills they need to either pass exams or for enhancing life skills. I live on the edge of the South Downs in a small cottage with my family, a dog, a cat and numerous chickens.

Teaching Experience:

I came into teaching as a mature student after spending 15 years in the catering and wholesale business. My first training came with the Sussex Wildlife trust where I helped run the outdoor field sessions for pupils from year 1 to A level studies. I then trained on the GTP course at schools in Brighton and then Burgess Hill before working at Ringmer Community College as Head of Geography. For the last 5 years I have been Head of Humanities at a private school in Kent, where I have been teaching GCSE Philosophy, Geography & History and A Level Philosophy and Geography.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an open approach to tutoring and emphasise self learning and confidence building with the student being the focus and seeing how they want to develop their own skills. I will discuss, motivate and lead a student to query the topics we look at and then work with them to develop their exam skills.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and devoted Foreign Language Teacher. I've been teaching Italian in London since 2010. I am well trained, confident and well-resourced.
I am enjoying teaching as I have great opportunities to meet and interact with a wide range of people of all abilities, from all over the world, who have so much to teach me!!
To be part of their learning experience and helping them to make good progress is absolutely rewarding.
I am very dedicated to my job and to offering the highest quality in Italian language teaching.
Every single student is unique to me, consequently, my courses are designed to suit their specific needs. I teach a wide range of courses,from beginners to proficiency and find all of them satisfying in their own way.
My every day goal is to provide the best service, encouraging creativity and creating a very happy atmosphere.
Students always put a smile on my face; it's so nice to see their communicative competence develop and to be a facilitator of this.

Teaching Experience:

"Self employed": Teaching one-to-one individual adults
"Italian teacher" at International House (London)
"Modiano" (London), Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language
"Royal Opera House" (London) Italian Teacher
"Torre di Babele School" (Rome),Italian Teacher

Tutoring Approach:

Example of a course for beginners:
The course is designed to give students a basic knowledge of the Italian language. By the end of the course students will be familiar with the basic structure of the Italian language and have a sufficient vocabulary that will allow them to communicate with native speakers in most everyday situations. The language will be taught in the context of the social, cultural and historical aspects of Italy. A variety of activities will be used, including role-plays, watching films, listening to CDs, grammar exercises and group work. The course will be based on communicative and direct methods and active participation will be strongly encouraged. There will be regular homeworks to consolidate what has been learnt in class and to assess the students' progress.

Personal Description:
I have been an English teacher since moving to Asia in 2010. I have also studied intensive Mandarin at university in mainland China & Taiwan. I have been speaking Mandarin for 11 years now and use it daily in my life. For a period of 2 years I hardly even spoke English so as to improve my own Mandarin skills while immersing myself in Chinese society. I love watching movies & writing books. I do many sports including Parkour, climbing & archery. I always love to learn a new language and love teaching too. Love animals & pushing myself to do things. I'm positive about life & very friendly.

Teaching Experience:

For more than 8 years I have taught the English language to non native speakers throughout Asia and I have also taught beginner to intermediate level Mandarin to other foreigners in China. I have taught pre school children up through to high school and university level and even the elderly. I would say my strong points for teaching Mandarin are as follows: Spoken Chinese (How it's really used), formal and informal colloquial speaking, listening and understanding. I can also read traditional & simplified Chinese characters and write many.

Tutoring Approach:

My belief is that anyone can learn a language whether difficult or easy or if you have a hard time remembering things. There are ways and methods that can get your chosen language to stick in your head thus improving your skills quickly through the levels. My approach is to take a lesson, break it down into pieces & explain the exact meanings and the structure of what you're actually saying while drilling the characters into your head (Not literally)
>..< Also making it a fun and situational environment where you will learn how to really use your chosen language, therefore improving quickly and easily without feeling lost or frustrated. Instead you will be able to speak a new language within just a few months.
