Personal Description:
I am a Mathematics graduate from Cambridge University. After graduating, I worked in the IT industry, initially for a large corporation and then for an independent software house. I later formed my own company, specialising in developing applications for small- to medium-sized companies. I used the logical skills developed through studying Mathematics in my work as Business Analyst and Project Manager.
Since 2009, I have been tutoring Mathematics full-time. I also study extensively to keep up to date with the latest mathematical ideas and educational trends. I ensure that I am familiar with the most recent syllabuses.
Outside work, my main interest is music, particularly singing. I belong to two choirs.

Teaching Experience:

I teach exclusively one-to-one, as I believe that provides the best outcome for learning Mathematics. I am also available for home schooling: please contact me for rates.
In the six years that I have been tutoring Mathematics, I have taught the following topics to over 200 pupils on a one-to-one basis:
GCSE - Edexcel, AQA and iGCSE - legacy and 9-1

A-Levels (AS/A2) - Edexcel, AQA, OCR/OCR-MEI and Pre-U - legacy and new syllabus:
Core
Mechanics
Statistics
Further Pure
Decision
STEP
Oxford Maths Admissions Test
Advanced Extension Award

International Baccalaureate (IB) - Standard and Higher

Undergraduate topics including:
Bayesian statistics
Business and accounting Maths
Complex variable
Cryptography
Foundation requirements
Laplace & Fourier transforms
Linear algebra
Mechanics
Number theory
Optimisation
Ordinary and partial differential equations
Probability & Statistics

My GCSE and A level pupils have come from local schools including:
• Tiffin School
• Tiffin Girls
• ACS Cobham
• Teddington
• Esher College
• Kingston Grammar
• Hinchley Wood
• Hampton
• Epsom College
• Sutton Grammar

• Richard Challoner
• Southborough
• Hollyfield
• St John's Leatherhead
• Lady Eleanor Holles
• Reed's School
• Claremont
• Marymount
• Latymer
• Kingston College
Most of my university pupils attend Kingston University, Surrey University, or one of the University of London colleges, though many come for intensive lessons in the holidays from other universities to reinforce the topics they are learning, or to prepare for re-sits.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring the teaching approach to each student's needs and individual learning style. For school children and university students, I discuss their aims with them - and with their parents, if required - to determine what topics need additional tuition and then to work out the appropriate programme. I advocate continuous assessment to measure the student's progress. Closer to exams, the pupils will work through old papers. At this stage, strategic choices may be made to focus on the pupils strengths.
For adults, I work with them to develop a personalised programme to enable them to achieve their goals. This may mean working towards a specific qualification.
I have great passion for and a deep knowledge of Mathematics. My aim is always to get my students to enjoy the subject. Most importantly, they are encouraged to gain confidence in their own abilities by building on what they feel comfortable with. I believe that the right teacher can undo wrong learning very quickly.
Lessons take place at my students' homes, or at my home in Kingston, where I have a quiet study. Assignments and homework are an integral part of my teaching: there can be no improvement without practice.

Personal Description:
I've loved Mathematics from as long as I can remember and I enjoy teaching it and tutoring others. I have studied Maths up to PhD level and so am comfortable teaching all levels of Maths. I am friendly and spend time to help my tutees understand the fundamental concepts which they need for problem solving so that they can be successful in applying this knowledge in their exams.

Teaching Experience:

I was a teaching assistant at Strathclyde University for 4 years. In that time, I lectured Mathematics to first and second year University students, organised and supervised tutorial sessions, set and marked assignments/exams and tutored students on a one-to-one basis. I have also tutored my friend's kids who were home schooled and marked work which their parents didn't have the knowledge to mark.
Also have a PGDE(S) in Mathematics and currently teaching within the new curriculum.
Been involved in secondary school teaching since 2011 and currently teach in a private school in Glasgow.

Tutoring Approach:

I find that the most effective way of mastering concepts/tricks is the hands-on approach. So I work with my tutees particularly in areas where they are weak until they have mastered the underlying concept/approach and are able to apply it on their own to similar problems. I am patient and work with you to help you use the knowledge you already have by approaching material from a different angle to what you've maybe been shown.

Personal Description:
I am a 27 year old female, with a degree in English Literature, Film and Theatre and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Professional Acting.

I have a strong theatrical background, not only in acting, but also directing and producing. I love to travel, favourite places being Sri-Lanka and Australia. I am a food enthusiast: I love trying new foods, as well as cooking for my friends and family.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored several students through their GCSEs in English Language and Literature, always ensuring that I am up to date with changes to the curriculum and marking strategies. I am used to finding different methods of teaching to suit each student's needs.

I have worked as an English teacher in a school in China. While there I worked systematically through a curriculum with my class of 35 students, as well as giving them individual help with areas of personal difficulty.This meant I had to tailor my approach in order to meet each student's needs, as the class was mixed ability. It was a challenge to make sure no student was either overwhelmed or bored, but it allowed me to develop my skills and each student managed to flourish at their own pace.

Whilst at University I tutored others in my year who needed help with the phrasing of academic essays- in particular I assisted students with dyslexia who knew what they wanted to say, but had difficulty clarifying their point in writing. This was a very fulfilling role for me, as I was able to assist people I care about fulfil their academic potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient, calm person. I like to find out what interests my students and, if possible, incorporate this into their learning so that they associate their studies with something they like, not something they dread. I would normally ask a student to complete a small task initially so that I can assess their working level, and then progress from there, working at a pace which challenges them without being overwhelming.

I truly believe that each student has the potential to excel in life through education - and I would love to play a part in helping them reach their maximum level.

Personal Description:
My name is Bαrbara, I am Spanish (Madrid), I am 39 years old and I have been teaching Spanish and English as a Foreign Language since arriving to the UK in September 2005. Back in Spain, I finished my Teaching Degree, specialised in Modern Foreign Languages. I have always enjoyed teaching, communicating and sharing my knowledge with other people. Languages are an extremely important part in my life as my husband is Italian and my daughter was born in Cambridge and speaks three languages!

As a child I was always encouraged to study other languages. Since a very young age, I had three passions: Teaching, Languages and Nursing. I am not the type of person that wants to regret not doing something and wondering "What would have happened if …" so, I have done both Degrees, in Primary Teaching and Adult Nursing.

After working as an Oncology Nurse for some time, I am now fully focused on the language tutorials, translations and trips to Spain and UK for students.

Teaching Experience:

After finishing my A-Levels, I decided to do a Bilingual Course. I knew I liked and enjoyed languages but I did not have a well defined vocation by that time. Once I finished the two year studies including Spanish, English and French, I started working as a private English teacher for adult students with different requirements. That happened between 1997 and 2000. By that time I was sure Teaching was for me. I enrolled in a Primary Teaching Degree at CES Don Bosco University in Madrid that lasted four years. In 2005 I decided to teach abroad and I came to England with my husband. I started a business as Self-Employed Spanish Teacher for groups and individuals that lasted until I finished my second Degree as an Adult Nurse. During those years at Anglia Ruskin University I continued to work as a private teacher.
If you are interested in talking to some of my previous students or checking references, I am more than happy to provide them. I have an up to date CRB and my Self-Employed documentation to prove all the above mentioned dates.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about teaching and working with children and adults and I am fully aware of the impact teachers can have on the student's future.
Under my point of view, a good teacher should be inspiring and encouraging and therefore remembered by the students forever. A great teacher must be aware of the long lasting impact their words and actions will have on the lives of his/her students.
A teacher must be able to hold the student attention at all times through an engaging personality and an interesting teaching style. In order to achieve this, the teacher needs to establish clear and realistic objectives for each lesson promoting positive behaviours and allowing space for possible changes in the classroom.
My experience as a private teacher and as a nurse have allowed me to develop my management and communication skills, both of them key to provide quality teaching. I have always had an excellent rapport with students and their parents in order to keep them informed about the lessons and possible issues. This should never interfere with the trusting relationship established between teacher and pupil. I have always had high expectations and encouraged my students to work at their best possible level.
I am a dedicated, enthusiastic and and responsible person who would love to continue teaching until the day I retire.
If you are interested in receiving information about my tuitions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
Thanks and see you soon!

Personal Description:
Hello, I am from Paris, I have a honour degree in Arts from the University of Edinburgh (2003), and have been making painting and ceramics then.

I have also developed an interest in health, nutrition and complementary therapies so studied reflexology and qualified as a reflexologist in 2011.

I love culture: the arts, music and literature so I am currently learning German and improving my Spanish because I want to explore more European cities.

Teaching Experience:

I trained as a secondary school French teacher 10 years ago in Wales.

Since then I have been teaching French to undergraduate students, to adults in evening classes also at university and in private lessons, and to pupils in one to one after-school lessons.

I am currently a supply teacher in secondary schools in South Wales so I am familiar with GCSE and A-level requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

After approaching my student on her/his chosen areas of focus (GCSE pupils can expect to improve their writing skills as much as or even more than their speaking skills, while professional people may prefer to be more at ease first with their conversational skills) I try and devise lesson plans that are well-focused and engaging.

I use recent and stimulating resources such as French films, documentaries, online blogs and magazines.

Having done some acting in my early twenties I like to take inspiration from the feeling of acting and improvising. this does not mean that my students end up reciting impressive French speeches standing up in a cafe, but rather that I have a mind that naturally tries to create situations that lend themselves to role playing or improvising moods, etc.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Carol and I'm a transplanted American. I've lived in the UK for over 10 years and I absolutely love it. My daughter Grace lives in Edinburgh with her husband and wee baby boy. And my son Elijah is 24 and lives here in London, studying fashion at Royal College of Art.

I love to cook and entertain friends. I go to the cinema a lot with my son or with friends and I try to get to the theatre at least four or five times a year. I cycle everywhere, and making things look homely and inviting brings me great joy. I read a great variety of things and watch fascinating documentaries. And if I could, I'd travel the world continuously to soak in all the amazing cultures and languages and traditions of the world.

I currently tutor English to students from a variety of countries and language backgrounds.

Teaching Experience:

I homeschooled both my children for fourteen years total. If success is measured by the outcome, my children are proof of my tutoring ability. Grace went on to graduate from University of Edinburgh with a 4 year degree in English Literature and History. Elijah graduated from Northampton University with a First in Fashion Design and is now a graduate student at Royal College of Arts. I tutored every subject to them, and also taught group tutoring sessions in Geography, Earth Science and History.
When my children went on higher education, I retrained as a TESOL teacher, the highest level to teach English as a Foreign Language. I've worked in English schools here in London and taught to the FCE exam as well as privately tutoring English to businessmen and woman from around the world.
I've been teaching now for 22 years, mostly tutoring one-on-one.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everyone has the capacity to learn anything if it's taught to their learning style and consciousness. None of us sees things the same way....and none of us can absorb things by the same method as another person. It's crucial to understand a person's 'grid', or the way they learn. That only comes from observed feedback: that's when someone who is learning something new digests it and then gives it back in some way (an essay, a written assignment, or a verbal recounting) to show understanding. I call that 'the lightbulb moment'.

I also think that being relaxed and having fun while learning is so important. Good humour is a key to learning. When we are enjoying the company and the environment, our sensors are up and our receptors are open! It's a refreshing and invigorating experience, not a draining one.

The relationship between the tutor and student needs to be safe. It should feel like a safe place to make mistakes or to say, 'I don't understand.' Or to feel very, very excited about understanding something for the first time without being made to feel like 'it's about time.'

I believe in academic success, measured by passing tests, but not limited by them.

-As an Ex Grammar School student I have experience in sitting and passing the 11+ tests myself as well as a generally strong educational background (including strong A-Levels and excellent GCSE's).

-Currently starting a tuition company.

Just give me a call to arrange a meeting to see if I can help.

Teaching Experience:

-Carrying out private tuition with over 60 students for almost 3 years in the following subject areas:

-Maths and English Primary Level including SATs
-11+ Entrance Exams (Kent/Medway) including all aspects of Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
-Maths Key Stage 3 (Year 7 - Year 9)
-Maths GCSE (Foundation, Higher, Linear/Modular)
-Maths IGCSE
-Maths AS/A-Level

-Success rate has been excellent across the board and references/CV are available on request.

-Typically GCSE students are helped to move at least one grade up compared to before tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

-I take a very methodical and structured approach to tuition. This starts with a careful observation and assessment of a students strengths and weaknesses.

-From there I workout the most suitable way to get them towards their goal and to improve general skills such as problem solving, speed awareness, exam/revision techniques, memory improvements etc.These methods have been tried, tested and refined.

-Topics taught are personalised to the individual students strengths and weaknesses as well as individual progress rate.

-Students motivation and confidence is another factor which is worked on continuously.

-A broad range of resources is used to keep work varied where appropriate and trying to teach independent working is a constant.
