Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated Teaching Professional, with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 25 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults, interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals, as well as communicating inside the family.

My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.

I tend to focus in improving spoken fluency and listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition as part of the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.

I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results of good communication between both parties and learner assessment throughout the course.

Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and supporting the students in improving their skills.

I can ensure fast and excellent results.

Personal Description:
I am 60 years old, originally from a business and finance background, and retrained as a teacher from 2008/9, completing a PGCE. I am QTLS qualified and a member of the Tutors' Association which promotes professional standards in the tutoring industry.
I operate as a freelance/private tutor specialising in mathematics and have experience in teaching all ages from primary up to GCSE. I also have several years' experience teaching basic numeracy and literacy to adults.

Teaching Experience:

From 2007-2009 I worked as a volunteer/trainee teacher for a further education college and from 2009-2012 was employed as a basic skills tutor travelling throughout East Anglia teaching adult numeracy and literacy in the workplace. Since January 2012 I have worked as a private tutor teaching mathematics to 5 - 16 year olds whilst continuing to work as a part-time Functional Skills and GCSE mathematics tutor for a local college.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that all teaching should be learner-centred so learning is enjoyable and effective. Teaching should be individually tailored to each learner, whose needs should always come first.I aim to help learners overcome their fear of maths and build up confidence by patience and quiet encouragement.

Personal Description:
My name is Lisa, I have a passion for the Martial Arts and love nothing more than teaching others. I have trained in Karate and Kickboxing prior to Taekwondo which has been my life for the past 18 years. I hope to be able to pass on my experience and knowledge to others. I have a venue available in Keighley and Bingley for private tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

4th Dan Black Belt in the Martial Art of Taekwondo with over 15 years experience of teaching. I hold the 3rd Class Foreign Instructors qualification from completing my training at the World Taekwondo Headquarters in Seoul, South Korea.

I have additional qualifications in the fitness industry where I formally worked as a Gym Manager.

I offer private 1-1 tuition in self-defence and Taekwondo; I also teach Martial Arts to young people as part of West Yorkshire Police's Safer Schools initiative and have experience of teaching women's groups, young people in community organisations and individuals.

Tutoring Approach:

I am keen to be able to help others and pass on my knowledge and experience. I will teach you basic techniques to keep you safe & which work. Be aware that some instructors may show you fancy techniques but these aren't realistic in a dangerous situation, the key is to make you feel more confident, more aware and feel able to deal with a situation effectively should one arise. The basic techniques are the ones you can learn and master and which will hopefully keep you safe. It's not about strength but about technique and being knowledgeable in a situation.

Personal Description:
My name is Jae, an international student at University of Surrey studying Aerospace Engineering. I have also studied at Australian National University for two years. My major at Australian National University was Manufacturing and Management Engineering. Although I am an international student, I have finished my junior and senior secondary education in English spoken country, thus I have good background of using English.

Teaching Experience:

I have no official teaching experiences in the UK. However, I am always willing to help my colleagues if they have any questions or problems regarding their subject as long as it is engineering related materials. On the other hand I was a volunteering Maths, Physics and English tutor in Korea for a year in total.

Tutoring Approach:

It is essential to understand the basic and fundamental concept in every academic subject and practice it. Thus, my approach for tutoring is to express the fundamental base as easy as possible then trying many examples to make a new understanding solid for later application.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly person with a good sense of humour. I like people and try to take a positive view of their difficulties and problems. I enjoy teaching English. I learn something new from my students all the time; it is so rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years. I have 25 years experience working with teenagers in a further education colleges, with younger people in schools and latterly in adult education. I was an AQA examiner in English for 5 years and understand most examination boards' set requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to agree long term goals broken down into small achievable tasks. If a student has a problem with any work I set I prefer them to contact me by telephone or email for further help rather than struggle on.

Personal Description:
Hi all (and apologies for awful hair in profile picture). I am currently a Oxford University reading mathematics (after studying at Dr Challoners), meaning that I am only available for tutoring outside of term times (although keep in mind Oxford vacations are very long! Feel free to contact me through the site and I can give you more specific information for when I am available). After trying to teach my family bits of maths for a while they have eventually tired of it so hopefully I might have more joy sharing my enthusiasm with a willing student!

Teaching Experience:

Aside from helping my younger sibling and kids I babysit with their homework, I also volunteered in a school run scheme where older students tutor struggling KS3 students once a week, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also have some experience tutoring other students through this site.

Tutoring Approach:

When studying maths, I have often found that a sound understanding of the basic underlying principles to be key, so this is what I would hope to instill in a any students. I would also focus on developing passion and enthusiasm for the subject as this is also incredibly useful, as it encourages students to spend more time to engage with material, in a more rigorous fashion.

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired Computing Teacher and IT Manager and have worked with IT and Computing for more than 20 years. I am qualified to Masters Degree level in Computer Science and have been teaching Computing / IT both in school and privately since 1992.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching at A level for over 20 years and also have had many private tutees during that time. I have dealt with many different students of various ability and recognise the requirements to deal with different ability levels. One to one private tuition is, of course, different to classroom teaching and thus important to deliver the subject accordingly.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one tuition is as much about increasing the confidence of the tutee as it is about enhancing their knowledge. Therefore, the approach is very much to connect with the tutee and identify and develop the skills required in the tutee.

Personal Description:
I'm a graduate of the University of Edinburgh's MA (Hons) Latin degree. I've got a working background in arts management and administration, but I'm hoping to utilise my degree to encourage prospective Latinists to give the subject a go!

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in Latin and English Literature five years ago, both for beginners and up to GCSE. I currently have a tutee learning beginner's Latin. While at university I tutored other students in beginner's Latin and Classical Civilisation. I've also spent the past few years providing training for adults in the workplace, so I'm happy to tutor adult learners (both beginners and experienced) as well.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer tutoring using practical methods - such as discussions and games - rather than just learning by rote. However, I adapt my tutor style based on what the tutee requires. I've been trained in a variety of methods to engage young and adult learners, and will try out several to see what suits the tutee best. For more experienced learners, such as A-Level / Advanced Higher candidates, I will identify which areas of the subject (vocabulary, grammar, literature) need most tuition, and decide with the tutee which to focus upon. I am happy to tutor individuals or in small groups (in which case a discounted rate can be agreed upon.)

Personal Description:
Reliable and qualified Maths Teacher with 20+ years of experience of tutoring individuals and groups.

I care deeply about teaching and learning in general and the teaching of mathematics is a particular passion for me. I am a secondary school mathematics teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have completed a BSc in Accounting, an ACCA qualification and a PGCE course. I am currently studying for my MSc Education degree. I have 20+ years experience as a tutor and 10+ years as a teacher. I have also worked for an acounting firm for 5 years and worked as a company director for 7 years.

My first session is provided free of charge and I use this session to understand the needs of prospective pupils. At the end of the session, I have a frank and honest discussion with the pupil and/or their guardians. I use these conversations to listen to the concerns of the pupils and/or their guardians and present an outline of my assessment of the student's areas of strengths and weaknesses. I also suggest a course of action to help the pupil move forward.

Teaching Experience:

I have been providing tuition in mathematics for over 20 years and have been a secondary school Mathematics Teacher for over 10 years. I have tutored A Level, university, AAT, CAT, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA students in accounting for over 10 years and have 5 years experience teaching professioanl accounting courses in private colleges. I have experience teaching to individual students, to small groups and to classes of up to 35 students. I have helped four year old pupils take their first steps in arithmetic and forty plus year old students finally understand how algebra works. In accounting I have worked with 16 year olds studying accounting for the first time for A Levels or CAT or AAT and 40+ year olds who have working in accounting for a long time and are studying for their professional exams.

I have helped students gain confidence in their own mathematical ability when they have been convinced by the academic system that they are incapable of doing well in the subject. I have also helped higher attaining students to challenge themselves and aspire to become even better. Most recently my Year 7 students were the only gold medallists in the UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge in my secondary school. They did considerably better than all the other Year 7 students and even all the Year 8 students in the school who sat the same exam.

Tutoring Approach:

During the last two decades I have worked with many hundreds of students and have read research studies from academics around the world on the subject of attainment in mathematics. My own experience is in keeping with all the studies I have read about this topic. The overwhelming majority of students can do well in mathematics provided they have the confidence, the techniques and willingness to work hard. Even after only six to eight weeks of tuition, all the students I have tutored have improved by at least one grade or one level.

I tell all prospective pupils there is no magic bullet or shortcut. To achieve success in mathematics a few things are key: understanding the concept well; understanding when and how to apply it in different situations; lots of practice in applying it in different scenarios and short, regular revision sessions. So my only pre-conditions before I agree to work with any student are: a positive attitude; a commitment to put in the time and effort required to bring about the improvement in their grades; and at least one ninety minute session every week.

It is important to me that students should enjoy mathematics and look forward to their sessions with me. To ensure this I use a variety of different resources to explain concepts to students and am a firm believer in using physical and computer based study tools and aides to complement the standard oral and written tools used to teach mathematics. I also believe in linking the mathematics that we study to the real world to increase students' engagement with the topic and their understanding of its relevance. I am very patient and empathetic to my student's needs and once they develop in confidence I encourage all my students to challenge themselves regularly. Depending on the amount of time available, I usually help students cement their mastery of the foundations of arithmetic and algebra before moving on to establish fluency in statistics, geometry and problem solving.

Personal Description:
A 1st class scholarship graduate, one of London's top specialist full-time Maths tutors with 700+ hours experience, I am consistently in high demand.

I have a consistent record helping students gain acceptance into London's most prestigious schools through the 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+ or 13+ entrance exams, as well as routinely exceeding expectations by unlocking students potential for A* grades from Primary to GCSE level.

I have earned a reputation not only for outstanding results, but also for inspiring a long-term love of learning in my students. These are reflected by an abundance of testimonials, available to read below, that validate results and a positive change in attitude towards Maths.

As a young dynamic tutor, I get along great with kids and offer a uniquely enthusiastic and imaginative approach that students respond to. My affable nature paired with my breadth of knowledge, allows me to offer the very best tuition to children of all ages and backgrounds.

My belief is that the key to long term academic success is in encouraging a genuine curiosity which expands well beyond the limitations of government syllabi, paving the way for study and understanding at the highest level.

I am kept very busy by referrals, as my tutoring families regularly recommend me to their colleagues and friends. As such, please accept my apologies if I'm a little slow to reply during busy periods. I always write back as soon as I can.

Education:
1st in Engineering from the University of Western Australia as a scholarship student
Also received academic scholarships for exchanges to New York University and University of Sydney.

Hobbies & Interests:
Music (Singing, Guitar, Piano), Sports (Gymnastics, Football, Surfing), Drawing, Cooking, Reading.

Teaching Experience:

"My son connected with him from day one. Our son was at a very low ebb with his Maths, and Daniel stepped in and made real progress. From the first lesson, Daniel helped him to find the gaps in his knowledge and was able to get him to feel that he really understood. They worked together on anything that was challenging, and Daniel made such a difference. I think Daniel is an excellent teacher and we feel that our son has benefited enormously." - S D, mother (GCSE)

"The kids are very happy with your tutoring and so am I. They tell me that your lessons are excellent, and really building their confidence. We have put our faith in you Daniel. For the first time, our daughter has started to achieve top grades. We've also noticed other positive changes; she's a lot more sociable now too." - T K, father (GCSE and KS3)

"You've got a real talent: I can see that the you communicate with my son is really special; you get down to his level, you make friends, and you really connect." L H, father (Year 3)

"I can see that you've already made immense progress in the areas where our son is struggling. I'm really impressed with how much more easily he's working things out now. I tried and couldn't help him like you have!" - S W, father (11+)

"Daniel had a broad brief of inspiring my daughter to get excited by maths. He achieved this brilliantly with charm and enthusiasm. Daniel is inspiring, cool and effective." - T S, mother (Year 8)

"You've made it so much clearer; I thought I was never going to get this. I actually understand it all now!" - B S, student (8+)

"Daniel is full of energy and full of life. It is infectious! He can explain some very complex maths by chopping the material down into much more concise ideas. Entire double page spreads are condensed into an equation and a couple of bullet points. My daughter tells me that concepts that seemed complicated now seem easy, and that working with Daniel has saved her hours of struggling with revision. And if she's interested in a particular idea, he is fully able to expand beyond the syllabus too! He is a real genius, and the house brightens up each time with his presence!" - V N, mother (GCSE)

"I wish I could live with you so that we could have a lesson every day" - T A, student (Year 3)

"I got an offer for Westminster! I'm super happy. Thank you!" - A H, student (8+)

"Daniel has been a great tutor and a distinguished role model for my son. He has been talking about his 'smart teacher' ever since. He has the gift of teaching with fun and games. Thank you Daniel" - A O, mother (Year 1)

"You are by far our favourite tutor - and there have been many! I am so grateful to you for turning our son's maths around and giving him a true understanding of what he is doing - fantastic that you were able to achieve this." - C S, mother (Year 3)

"I can see a dramatic improvement. She's so much more focused, and her work is so much better." - K M, mother (Year 4)

"C got 3A*s so she was delighted, as were we. She did particularly well in statistics. Thank you very much for your contribution to that which boosted her confidence. Very positive feedback from us. C enjoyed her sessions with you and could quite see why you are so acclaimed." - J F, mother (GCSE)

"I showed E's teacher what she's been learning with you. She was really impressed; she says they're nowhere near that in school. E is way ahead of the class. She's doing so much better this year thanks to you Daniel." - A B, mother (11+)

"The results have been excellent. Both girls got straight As. G got a spectacular 100% in the exam! She was shocked because she didn't even think she was that good at it. Thank you for all your help." - C H, mother (7+)

"My son can't stop talking about you. He tells us all about the games you played, we can't believe he likes maths games!" - A O, mother (Year 2)

"Our son is very motivated and it's the first time I've seen him 'wanting' to do well. Very much due to your lessons!" - N W, mother (13+)

"My daughter tells me that you're a super genius - brilliant at maths, music, everything. I know that she will do well with you looking after her." - S A, father (GCSE)

"Daniel scored quite a coup when he had our son teaching his own maths class a method that the school teacher hadn't been able to teach them. Now A's whole class understands thanks to Daniel's method!" - W M, father (Year 5)

"C has come out top of the set in the majority of our assessments this term. I think her confidence is now far higher." - A A, C's school maths teacher (11+)

"We had been through countless tutors with my nephew and none of them could build up the relationship. But Daniel was different it's not easy to find a tutor of such high standard and character." - A S, uncle (Year 4)

"You were amazingly helpful to my son when you were tutoring him - you transformed his confidence in the subject and himself." - E A, mother (GCSE)

"It's so much clearer with Daniel than when we cover it in school" - A H, student (Year 7)

"My son was so excited after the lesson, telling me about your discussions with him which he found amazing." - C C, mother (Year 8)

"I was over the moon with my results. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help" - M R, student (7+)

"Thanks to you (somehow!) my daughter managed to get A* A* in her maths, so you were right." and "Your explanations are absolutely worth it. You have rescued my daughter's confidence." - R V, mother (GCSE)

"Our son did fantastically in the maths paper that Daniel helped him with, and a high A overall. Daniel's help was marvellous. J had missed so much revision time having had flu at Easter, he would never have fitted it all in, but Daniel made everything so simple." - R M, mother (Year 6)

"Thank you again - I doubt you will get a clearer `before and after` demonstration of the impact you can have! In our view it is not just the quality of the teaching you delivered, but it is also the success in motivating our son to engage!" - M T, father (GCSE)

"Thank you for all your hard work. Our daughter set off for her penultimate A Level this morning saying she had never felt better prepared for a Maths exam and hoping that she would get the chance to show off her understanding of the subject. Going into an exam as well prepared and confident as that is certainly a great achievement!" - S H, mother (GCSE)

"I got an A in maths!" - T F, student predicted a C grade at GCSE (GCSE)

"We've had several other tutors and we just cannot find anyone as good as Daniel" - A B, mother (11+)

"My daughter moved up a maths group thanks to you you've achieved amazing results! And the best thing of all is that our daughter is enjoying her sessions with you! You've obviously formed a really strong link with her. When we were on holiday, she would keep seeing interesting things and saying "oh, Daniel would like to see this"." - C B, mother (11+)

"Well it would seem that you have been vested with some sort of guru status. Our daughter did so well on her Maths that she exceeded average and banked an A*. All of us couldn't be happier" - A M, father (GCSE)

"I actually got an A in Maths! I can't believe it! Thank you for all your help." - F C, student predicted a D grade at GCSE (GCSE)

"I like the trick you taught me for my times tables Daniel it's made me the best in my class." - C S, student (Year 2)

"Daniel has been the most understanding and considerate tutor imaginable. Our daughter has been trying to get back to school after being very unwell, and he has shown great sympathy but also positive encouragement when she has been able to study. He has worked her hard when she has been well enough but has given her easier sessions when necessary. He has been punctual, with excellent communication and well prepared to the sessions. I am hoping to use him more in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him." - C W, mother (GCSE)

"I find it all really easy now, since Daniel explained it to me!" A P, student (GCSE)

Tutoring Approach:

As a maths tutor, I animate and energise every area of study, especially those areas that a student has previously considered dull and disinteresting. I always promote the most thorough understanding and spirit of inquiry, and through the unique interests of the individual, I build long-lasting connections with the most fascinating areas of each subject, forming a firm foundation to ensure that my students are able to excel well beyond my time with them.

My goal with tutoring is to catalyse independence, not dependence as most tutors do, by showing students their own potential. I know from experience that every individual has the potential to achieve great things, and I love to help my students to strengthen their sense of self worth, and travel on a trajectory towards leaving a positive mark on the world.

I'm a young, dynamic, relatable and enthusiastic tutor that loves to teach and gets a great sense of pride from my students success. I am intuitive, patient and affable with every student, regardless of background. I always endeavour to be the best tutor I can be and provide the best results for my students.

I ONLY TEACH 1.5 HOUR SESSIONS OR LONGER:
You may think this is too long for younger students, but 75% of my students are primary school students all enjoying 1.5 hour sessions because of the 15 minute fun time at the end (see below). Hour long lessons seem to end just as you are really getting into a topic and for that reason I only teach 1.5 hour sessions or longer. From my extensive experience it is clear that 1.5+ hour sessions are much more productive, comprehensive and effective at achieving results.

15 MINUTE FUN TIME AT THE END (FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS):
With all my younger students we have 15 minutes at the end for fun time where we do together whatever they want - like drawing or a game. At a young age tutoring is seen as boring and something really not looked forward to, but the 1.5 hour session with the 15 mins at the end completely changes that as they see it as I get to make a drawing with Daniel again today etc. If the session was an hour there would no time for games as you can't teach much in 45 mins. My references say I'm great with kids and prove how these 15 minutes make all the difference by making the lessons more fun, productive and effective at achieving results.

FREE FIRST LESSON/CONSULTATION:
The relationship between the tutor and student strongly affects the effectiveness of tuition so I like to give a free introduction lesson to see if we 'click' and you like the way I teach. It's also a consultation where we discuss where your child is at and where they would like to be. The length of the free first session indicates the length of following regular paid lessons.

There's nothing to lose so help your child today!
