Personal Description:
An experienced examiner. Graduated in Chemistry (BSc) before completing an MSc in Analytical Chemistry, I have been tutoring A-level Chemistry for 10 years. I started tutoring during my PhD studies and have continued ever since. In addition to this I have been marking A-level Chemistry papers for the last 5 years. (AS Organic, Foundation and practical modules). When I was studying in Liverpool, I helped up to 8 students at a time but will be limiting numbers this year. I generally try to make more time available in the run-up to exam season so I might be able to accommodate more.

Teaching Experience:

Approximately 30 students over the last 10 years.

10 Years of marking A-level Chemistry papers.

Tutoring Approach:

This will vary from student to student and the target grades. I am happy to negotiate the approach and pace with the student but do insist on studying around their specific syllabus and like to include exam technique and practise where I can.

I can work through the syllabus from begining to end, last minute cram sessions or limit the tutoring to specific problem areas.

Personal Description:
Spanish (Castellano) mother tongue from South America. Vast knowledge of the South American region and culture and also a lot of the Iberian Peninsula as I travel there very often to visit friends and family members living there.

Teaching Experience:

More than 20 years. I have experience teaching in Universities in South America and as a private Language Tutor in UK and in Italy. In England for the last 10 years I have been working teaching Spanish and Italian.

Tutoring Approach:

I adapt my lessons to the student needs, skills, abilities and interests. I use a conversational approach than includes the comprehension of the grammatical rules of the language. It is also important for me to communicate aspects of the cultural and social reality and the History of the language studied.

Personal Description:
My name is Andy. I finished my A-Levels in 2011 and am preparing to study German and Russian at The University of Cambridge starting in October. I excelled at languages in school, receiving an A* in German A2 and an A in French AS. Between school and university I studied at the Goethe Institute in Berlin, lived and worked in Germany for over half a year, and am now starting to learn Russian and pusuing my other interests such as computer programming. I have also travelled extensively in France and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have no formal teaching experience (yet!) but learning three foreign languages myself and having studied German in a class actually taught in German, I am very familiar with the aspects of language that students have difficulty with. I am always thinking of better ways to explain things than the way they were explained to me, because every student learns in their own way; this makes me well placed to teach languages, German in particular due to my recent experiences in my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

Having only recently completed my German GCSE myself (in 2009), I am familiar with the way it is taught in school. I also had lessons from a private tutor myself in German for a year or so during secondary school, so I know the sorts of things that will complement and expand on the material taught in class.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Ana. Nice to meet you!

I am a qualified and experienced language tutor based in Edinburgh. If you or your child are having difficulties with Spanish or German, preparing for National 5 or GCSE exams, or perhaps just need some extra support with schoolwork, I can help.

I am a Spanish native speaker born and raised in Spain. I attended University both in Spain and Germany. After graduating I moved to Germany permanently, where I spent seven years working as a translator for the United Nations. I love foreign languages and I want you to love them too (or at least, not dread them). I'm fully fluent in German. Having learned it as a second language myself, I know all the tricky bits and how to explain them so you'll understand them once and for all.

Now I live in beautiful Edinburgh, where I have set up my own tutoring and translation business. My mission is to help students like you get better grades in Spanish and German.

Private tutoring can do wonders for a student's confidence. Whether you are struggling to keep up in class or just need a bit of extra support, you'll benefit greatly from one-to-one tuition. After a few sessions with me you can be sure to make tangible progress that will be reflected on your grades. If you're stressed about sitting National 5 or GCSE in May, stop worrying. I'm here to make sure you are fully prepared for exam success.

Exam time looms but it's not too late! Let me help you get the grades you long for.

Teaching Experience:

I am passionate about helping my students to improve their grades and achieve their full potential in Spanish and German. Over the years, I have:

Gathered +1000 hours of one-to-one tutoring
Helped students to build confidence and achieve exam success
Raised the performance of students by at east one full letter grade
Received positive feedback from students and parents

Tutoring Approach:

Often in school there is only a limited time to review a student's work and understanding. That may not always be enough. Having a private tutor gives students an extra chance to review the areas in which they may be struggling. We work together on the areas of the language that require improvement (grammar, spelling, essay writing) building up a solid foundation. I have a range of extra exercises & activities to reinforce what is being taught at school.

For help with school lessons, we sit together and go through your homework or class work. In doing that, we will come across the concepts that are giving you trouble and I will fill in the gaps.

If you need help to prepare for National 5 or GCSE, we work with past and specimen papers almost entirely, honing exam technique until it becomes second nature.

Get in touch now to find out how I can help you get better grades!

Personal Description:
I have a Diploma in Fine Art and a Degree in Art. I am also a qualified teacher and manage a very successful full time art education business, which takes me across Hertfordshire and into London to teach children, teens and adults. My own work explores the fine arts and has been shown in galleries across Australia. When I am not teaching or coordinating arts education programmes for public spaces I spend time working on my own artworks. I love to teach art, its highly rewarding and meaningful to give students the skills to be creative.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years teaching experience with children aged 4-19 years old and 2 years experience teaching adults. I have taught for schools, galleries, courses and privately. I am currently teaching art classes for 5 schools and have several regular private students. I can teach pencil, pen, charcoal, chalk pastel, watercolour, oil and acrylic paint. I have coached many students through their GCSEs, A Levels and university portfolios. Students can either come to my studio or I can visit you!

Feedback from customers:

"Thank you so much for helping my daughter get her portfolio ready, she couldn't have done it without your guidance and its been a pleasure having you in our home. Thank you!" - Terry, mum of Tara (16 years)

"I never knew there was so much to learn about art! My 2 children loving having their very own art tutor, its developed their ability and they can now do artwork with confidence" - Maya, mum of Nicola & Jake (10 & 12 years)

"Amber was recommended to me to help my son put a portfolio together in order to apply for graphic design BA courses. The catch was, there were only two weeks to do so. Amber introduced him to new techniques and media with which he was able to create great pieces of work, she advised him on the structure and the visual layout of his portfolio and how to make it look fit for university interviews. She was amazingly accommodating and flexible at all times. With her work, she not only inspired my son but the rest of us as well - She is an amazing artist indeed! most importantly, my son got offered and accepted a place in Falmouth Universtity (his first choice). He continues to explore the techniques Amber taught him and has got confidence to venture further afield with his art. I hope to have some tutoring from Amber for myself and my daughter in the future too. A truly inspirational, calm and relaxing art adventure. Thank you Amber! We were very lucky to find you." - Renata, mum of Lucas (18 years)

Tutoring Approach:

As a qualified teacher I have a very calm approach to teaching because the journey and the end result are as important as each other. I have creative problem solving skills and I am able to encourage and support students to push past their personal creative barriers. I always bring a smile and a sense of humour to classes because its important for students to feel comfortable around me.

To every private class I teach I bring an easel or board and a range of materials to save you time and money. I spend a lot of time planning and preparing so that the student gets the best from the time spent with me.

Personal Description:
I am currently partaking in a gap year. I am a hard working and motivated person that has a lot of experience working with children in both schools and on holidays camps. I have a very calm nature and a lot of patience. I pride myself in being able to communicate well with all individuals, as well as being very creative. I am constantly looking of new ways to teach, and to learn myself.

Teaching Experience:

In recent months I completed my A Levels. For AS I recoieved an A in geography. Then for A2 an A* in business, A in religious studies and B in psychology. I have previously tutored other young children aged 10 and 15 in both English and Geography. I have also assisted to teach religious studies (philosophy and ethics) to GCSE and A Level students. I have a natural flare for teaching and working well with children. Due to just finishing both A Levels and GCSE's in recent years, I am very experienced in the current system and how to get th best marks.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a calm but disciplined method. I try to use creative ways to help teach different topics to make hem more memorable. I try to focus on repeating the important aspects of the course, along with a lot of exam question practice in maximise success. I understand the importance of repeating information and covering all potential questions to be fully prepared for exams.

I use a lot of visual techniques and formats when teaching as I believe this is one of the best methods when learning a subject. Especially a combination of images, coloured texts and videos.

Personal Description:
Semi-retired, experienced teacher who enjoys developing students as independent thinkers. Passionate about supporting people in reaching their goals. Patient and supportive. Current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching KS3 and KS4 Maths and Science in secondary schools; returning to teaching after working in industry where I extended my experience and skills in developing people to attain their personal and professional goals. Passionate about developing students to reach their maximum potential - I have experience in teaching, mentoring and supporting students across all abilities. Previous experience tutoring students in maths at both primary and secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether pre-GSCE and wanting to increase skills and confidence in maths, or working towards a GCSE and wanting to secure a higher grade - my approach is to understand the student as a learner to identify potential barriers to their understanding, and then building skills through practice to embed learning. I focus this within the context of what the student wants to achieve - the reason why they have sought-out help from a maths tutor.

Personal Description:
I am from the UK but lived in Spain and Italy for many years where I learnt how to speak and write both languages to high level. I also learnt how to do yoga and meditation, cook, coach football, do shiatsu, be more outgoing, sit at the dining table for long periods while chatting, and not lose my temper while driving in Rome. In Italian, they say that learning another language is like finding another soul, and it is true that with a new language and culture, you can explore facets of yourself that you never knew you had, meet people who would never have crossed your path and all in all experience a deeper richness to life.

Teaching Experience:

Taught English for many years in Spain having my own company for children and adult groups.
Worked with an experimental school in Italy called Lingua Viva applying yoga and meditation to language learning in English and Spanish.
Set up an English summer School called Playing to Learn where students learnt English through sports.
Worked at Oakham School in Rutland for seven years as a Spanish and Italian teacher. I taught both languages to GCSE, A Level and IB diploma. I also helped students with preparation for Oxbridge exams and interviews.
Currently lead-teacher at Hebden Bridge School working with children aged 8-13.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very skilled in inspiring children to learn, and helping them to achieve excellent exam results. More than 60% of my students receive A stars at GCSE and at A level they achieve A*, As or Bs. This is done by knowing the subject and the exam technique inside out as well as helping children find their motivation for learning. I also prepare children for Oxbridge entrance and interviews.
For adults, I make the classes fun and practical bringing a lot of cultural content into the learning.

Personal Description:
I am an artist and professional photographer. I have a BA degree in Fine Art from University of the Arts London and am currently undertaking a Masters in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London.

I am warm, energetic and love engaging young children and nurturing their natural creativity. As Picasso said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once s/he grows up." The art lessons we have as children are never forgotten and shape us for many years to come. I still remember with fondness my own memories of the art lessons I attended as a child. The fun, the excitement, the joy and sheer possibilities these lessons brought into being and how they helped me express my feelings and experience the distinct thrill of creating something new and novel.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private teacher to adults and children for the last four years. But I have been studying art for more than 15 years, both as a painter and student of art theory and history. Apart from having studied in art schools, I also had the opportunity to study with private art tutors and respect artists from my early childhood.

Tutoring Approach:

Given that I have been enrolled in art classes both as a child and adult, and have since become a teacher myself I am able to teach and attend to the needs of various age groups and bring the very best out of people.

I believe there are many different approaches for teaching art to individual children. I can offer bespoke classes for each child depending on their age, their needs and personality and their interests. I usually start by teaching basic drawing and knowledge about colours and shapes. I also teach different techniques with various media such as water colour, gouache paint, crayons etc. I also teach them elementary knowledge of art history, the lives of different artists and artistic movements so they acquire familiarity with this new world, hitherto unknown to them.

I try not only to teach children the basics of art but also self-confidence and belief in themselves. The ability to express oneself with confidence and give voice to one's creativity is a skill not only for the artistic studio, but for life more generally.

I'm committed to making the art class a fun place for children to develop their creativity and imagination, but also teach them how to beautify and transform their surroundings while they are learning.
