Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with a first class honours degree in Natural Sciences. I achieved top grades in my GCSE and A-levels, as well as winning various national academic prizes such as the National Institute of Medical Research Human Biology Essay Competition. I am currently studying graduate-entry medicine at Kings College London.

I have had a lot of practice with university interviews, especially in medicine and science. I am willing to offer interview practice for sixth-form students to help university applications.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 200 hours of tutoring experience from 11+ to GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

Although my main aim in tutoring is to help students achieve top grades in their exams, I also like to bring in relevant information from my degree and current medical studies. I feel that this helps to contextualise the subject, making it more relevant and interesting.

Personal Description:
I have a wide and varied education and employment background. Teaching is a vocation that I have found for myself relatively late in life. My maturity and experience are assets that enable me to approach students with great tact, understanding and patience.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a secondary mathematics teacher but I have a wide variety of teaching experience in many different subjects and teaching environments. As a supply teacher I have taught at over 30 different primary and secondary schools.

As a teacher of adults I have taught numeracy and English to many students over the last 5 years, including adults with learning difficulties.

As a private tutor I have taught Maths and English to all ages from 5 - 17, both at one to one level, and also in small groups.

I have extensive experience with 11 plus tuition and have a good knowledge of the content of exams for local grammar schools. I have received excellent feedback from parents. I work with small groups (6 maximum) at my home for 90 minute sessions after school. I methodically guide the students through the various types of test they need to master prior to taking the exam.

To sum up, I have helped many students improve their attainment levels, gain increased enjoyment from learning, and achieve excellent exam grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I have great patience with learners but also a great determination to help them to overcome the barriers that can inhibit learning progress. It is vital to me that the tutoring experience is a rewarding and positive one for both the learner and myself.

Personal Description:
I am a French national living in the UK (Whitley Bay) where I have recently settled with my British partner (Science and art illustrator).
I was lucky to be able to take early retirement from my job as a Crew Manager in a French Airline.

I would now welcome the opportunity to share my experience, my skills in communication and my knowledge of the French language with British students and adults wishing to acquire or improve their own level in French idiom and culture.

Teaching Experience:

My previous occupation which involved communication in different languages and forms with, for example, foreign customers, crews of different nationalities or foreign airline partners, through training, teaching and lecturing in the environment of air transportation world-wide gave me the possibility to develop my aptitudes towards communication.

Tutoring Approach:

I have studied English literature at the Sorbonne (Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris III), I also have a diploma of further education in Economy and Business (BTS - Academie de Paris - Ministere de l'Education nationale, de la Recherche et de la Technologie), and a diploma in English from the British Chamber of Commerce of Paris.
My studies and my professional experience have given me two different approaches to tutoring...
As a student, I could experience the importance of having a strong and adequate support in learning through committed tutors and passionate teachers... and on the other hand, as a professional, I was keen to share my knowledge and see the benefits of my action on my trainees.
Regarding languages the key is to define what kind of communication you wish to have and work that topic together.
Are you interested in verbal communication with locals when you are abroad ? Do you need to understand and use a specific form of language for your studies or work? Do you want to be able to read and write in French because you've partly settled there? And so on...
As a tutor my first step would be to know better about the reasons bringing you to learn French and how I can help you to achieve that aim...
So as you can see my approach to tutoring is more adapting my teaching to your individual ambition.
But it goes without saying that a good communication in any language rests on a sound foundation in that language. A thorough understanding and practice of the basic elements of the French language is therefore primordial as a first stage. You will then be ready to build up from that stage to the next level of communication.
Language is like music (I am also a musician)... so you need to educate your ear for better comprehension and practice almost every day to meet with comfort in pronunciation... reading aloud and of course speaking to a French national... Interaction is one of the best ways to develop your skills in a language...
Je vous dis donc a bientτt,

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired Clinical Scientists (registered). I am married with a son and I am a youthful 67 year old with an 8 years old son! We are a non smoking family. My involvement with "mathematics", at various levels, dates back to when I left secondary school (Blackpool) in 1964 and worked for the Civil Service for 5 years. I was in an accounts division and passed two additional maths (and eventually English!) O'Levels via evening classes as well as enjoying the 60s and playing bass guitar in local groups. I took a 1 year full time A''Level course (Maths, Further Maths and Physics) and subsequently read for a Mathematics degree (Physics subsid.) at the University of Nottingham (1970-73). During this time, I had 3 vacation studentships with different departments of the Scientific Civil Service. After graduating, I worked for around 15 years as a computer programmer / analyst during which time I passed an HND in Computer Studies (University of the South Bank, London). Although I was 40 years old when I was made redundant from a communications company, I decide to make a significant career change and return to my "roots" and look for scientific work where my mathematical skills would be better used. After 2 years as a Medical Laboratory Scientific Officer in the lung function laboratory at the Royal Brompton, I had the tools and experience to apply for a research post in Paediatric Respiratory Medicine at the Royal Post Graduate Medical School (RPGMS, Hammersmith Hospital).

I retired in 2014 after 25 years as a researcher / Clinical Scientist at the RPGMS and Royal London. A large part of my research involved mathematical analysis of breathing patterns and flow-volume curves. This involved developing techniques and algorithms for alternative methods of assessing "lung function". I published many papers in international medical journals and all included a significant maths / stats content. During this time, I took evening classes obtaining additional A' Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Statistics and then read for an M Sc in General Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Kings College London. In 2005, my portfolio was reviewed by the Health Professions Council and I registered as Clinical Scientist, which is a protected title, The main reason for the additional qualifications was my passion for learning and the thrill of sitting examinations and testing myself. The addition A'Levels and M. Sc. were taken for the challenge and pleasure and were not directly relevant to my career. One important reason for offering private tuition is my love of teaching / learning and I miss my close involvement with the "sciences". I have been accepted as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) ambassador and I have an enhanced DBS check certificate.

Teaching Experience:

Although, I do not have formal teaching qualification and I only started offering private tuition at the beginning of 2015, I am a patient person who has tutored a range of tutees from Common Entrance Exam level to adult learner including CGSE students for both Mathematics and Statistics.

However, my "teaching" roles / experiences go back to the mid 60s helping friends struggling with the Civil Service maths entrance exams and later, post graduation, I taught maths, unpaid, to several children of friends as well as adult friends and colleagues who needed to obtain better qualification. My research positions included (i) formal teaching / lecturing roles at all levels e.g. work experience students, medical / nursing students, visiting medics, junior members of the lab staff as well as registrars and consultants; (ii) presenting the research at local, national and international meetings and (iii) giving guest lectures on B. Sc. and M Sc. courses.

In my research / technical support work, I found particular pleasure explaining to children and parents the purpose and science that underpinned the tests and the analysis and interpretation of the results. This was a unique experience for almost all of them. It gave them and me a lot of pleasure and improved the success problems. In my own time, I helped patients, some who missed a lot of school time due to their problems, with both school work in the sciences and others with projects related to the maths and biology of their respiratory problems. Invariably, they ended up knowing more than their teachers!

Tutoring Approach:

As George Orwell never said "All tutees are not the same but some are more different than others".

I have a variety of approaches, depending on factors such as (i) whether the tutee needs teaching or revision; (ii) the number of lessons the tutee can fit in before the exam; (iii) their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their interests; (iv) whether the tutee is struggling to keep up or a flyer needing to ensure an A* (v) the length of the sessions 45-90 mins and whether it is one or two session a week and (vi) the work they are able to do between sessions.

However, there are aspects that are common to all tutees: before starting the lessons, I am happy to meet for a chat (no charge) to spend as long as necessary clarifying important issue such as (i) which board, level and paper they will be sitting; (ii) the text book they use and which parts of the syllabus have been covered and whether any need revising or explaining and (iii) wherever possible, obtaining suggestions and feedback from their teachers including where marks had been lost in recent exams.

Other aspects of my approach include (i) the tutee attempting appropriate questions / papers from other boards to encourage and foster "thinking outside the box" and, thus, to be prepared for questions that do not fit the usual mode; (ii) e-mailing questions of papers in advance of session to allow adequate time for preparation; (iii) feeding back how sessions have gone and suggestions for changes and being available between session via e-mail; (iv) moving up and down the difficulty ladder depending on the progress; (v) working on exam technique and teaching how to not misinterpret questions, sometimes, badly written; (vi) preparing tutees for difficult topics about to be taught at school, to ensure they get the most out of upcoming lessons; (vii) using examples from everyday life to demonstrate the use and usefulness of maths and statistics outside of the classroom and (viii) building up confidence and aiming to engender a passion and love of the subject and learning, in general.

I make extensive use of marking schemes and examiners reports to discuss how the tutee may have obtained the correct answer but lost marks due to not showing their working or lost time providing irrelevant details and this has been very successful and interesting for the tutees.

Some of my feedback:
(i) As a Year 11 student, Peter has been providing me with extra mathematics tuition during the final months before my GCSE examinations, offering distinct, concise teaching within a relaxed but highly enjoyable and yet professional environment. As a mathematician, Peter has aided me in approaching mathematics from a somewhat more lateral perspective, exploring multiple methods that could be employed to solve a challenging question; a form of thinking that is seldom used within a typical school environment. Peter's abundant, infectious passion for both his tuition and mathematics manifests itself within his unswerving support and guidance during our sessions together, delivering a uniquely engaging teaching environment within which to learn, but most importantly, to enjoy learning mathematics!"

(ii) Parent of a Year 11 school girl: Hello Peter, thank you for your follow up, your emails always have an interesting flair about them. We also enjoyed our meeting and Ebony particularly liked your relaxed approach to the subject, for that reason alone I think she would benefit from being able to ask questions without feeling awkward about what she doesn't understand, most importantly I agree with your 'spades a spade' philosophy in how to interpret the syllabus into the real world.

(iii) Teacher's reply to an e-mail from the mother of a Common Entrance school boy: Thank you for your email. I am pleased Edward has a good tutor and is happy doing extra Maths. The best paper to prepare Edward for our end of year test would be a practice SATs test as they follow a similar format to ours.

(iv) A recent GCSE student, EDEXCEL Higher, via his mother: Peter, I obtained and A in my Stats paper and B in my maths paper and I was told by my teacher that it might be worth remarking, as I was only several marks away from the A Grade)

Consulting the 'breakdown' of my overall Mathematics grade, it appears as though I (thanks to your support) did exceptionally well within the non-calculator paper (the equivalent of a very high A/ very low A* in terms of marks), but it was simply a few questions at the end of the calculator paper (that seemed to baffle everyone, regardless of ability) that partially pushed my overall grade down.

Once again, thank you for all of your support and guidance; I certainly would not have been able to achieve my result within the NON-calculator paper, the paper that I claimed was more intimidating, without our sessions within the Library. You have improved not only my proficiency, but also my confidence in Maths enormously and for that I cannot thank you enough.

(v) Father of a schoolgirl (EDEXCEL Higher): "E" did very well overall and passed all 13 ! In Maths she was one point off a B so of course that's a C. I think we will request a remark for the maths paper. Many thanks again for your help in the past, best wishes.

Basic Level Photography

Starting from scratch, I can teach you all need to know about using any make or model of digital camera. From selecting the correct camera settings such as ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings to suit any particular subject, I can teach you all you need to know about using your camera for basic level photography.

Intermediate Level Photography

Going beyond the basic settings on the camera, I can also teach you about composition, lead-in lines, depth-of-field, selective focusing and the use of close-up filters and ring-flash for close-up photography.

Advanced Tuition

Advanced tuition allows students to select a more specific style of tuition. This can include anything from using neutral density filters for motion-blur and zoom-burst photography to using your camera for creative landscape & nature photography with workshops held 'on-location' at a variety of internationally important nature reserves, including RSPB Minsmere.

Image Enhancement & Printing

If required, we can also demonstrate how to use your computer's software to fine-tune and enhance the quality of your images.

Personal Description:
I'm currently in my first year studying Engineering at Durham university. Outside of my academic studies i am a very keen runner, training up to 6 times a week. I generally enjoy sport and am always willing to try something new, so therefore end up trying out a whole range at University.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped younger children at my secondary school to improve their maths skills, through weekly sessions. My main experience is explaining topics to my fellow classmates at GCSE and A-level to help them on parts they are unsure of.

Tutoring Approach:

Im always wanting help other people to improve there knowledge in whatever way I can, this translates through my teaching style using techniques I found useful when being taught to teach others. Patience for me is key and I find it the best way to explain a topic.
