Personal Description:
My teaching style is relaxed and friendly, making learning fun but rewarding and with a serious commitment for students to succeed. Friendly, approachable, a good sense of humour, empathetic, patient, dedicated and enthusiastic about teaching, I do my utmost to ensure that my students feel that their learning experience is fulfilling and rewarding.

I do not drive so rely on public transport to get me to and from tutoring jobs, I have put a 15 mile limit on my details but am willing to consider longer distances, however this would incur further travel costs so must be negotiated at the time of booking/hiring my services.

Teaching Experience:

Over 20 years experience teaching 14 years to adults, teaching CV writing (and all areas of Employability), Basic and Soft Skills (including confidence building), Business Enterprise Levels 1, 2 & 3, NVQ Business Administration Levels 1 an 2 and ESOL pre-entry to Level 2. Qualified to Cert Ed, City & Guilds, along with certified in Teaching Literacy and Numeracy to Adults (9380 series), D32/33 Assessors Award and V1 Internal Verifier Award. Currently sourcing a college to study for the Literacy Level 4 Specialism and also to gain ESOL qualifications.

in the last two years I have gained diplomas in Aroma Stress Therapy, Flower Essence Therapy, and in Crystal Healing; an can now either offer any of the therapies themselves, or teach the basics of them.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to get to know my students and identify their particular needs, then, working together, devising a programme best suited to them. I am flexible and adaptable according to the student's needs, learning style and learning barriers.

I am more than willing to adapt whatever programme of delivery decided on to best suit the needs of my student, for instance with regard to number of hours per week, number of weeks needed etc.

Personal Description:
I hold an Artist Diploma for a concert pianist from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and BMus Hons from the Royal Academy of Music.

Teaching Experience:

I have a broad experience as a solo pianist and an instrumental and vocal accompanist-I have worked with different types of instrumentalists and chamber groups. So far I have worked with people of all ages and professional levels but have never found the collaboration difficult because I love trying new exciting things and meeting new colourful people who I can make beautiful music with. I have been teaching piano for the past 10 years. I have a vast experience in working with children and youngsters,as well as adults.I offer one-to-one tuition and work in small groups. So, if you are looking for someone to help you to prepare and perform for your Grade exam,(ABRSM,LCM,GCSE or A-Level music ) ,an important audition,competition or a concert project,or just want to learn to create music-don't hesitate to contact me!

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to either prepare students for music examinations with a recognised board( ABRSM,LCM,GCSE or A-Level music),auditions of all aspects,competitions and concert projects or work within a less regimented structure-people who want to play for fun and learn to create music. The approach towards each student is absolutely unique according to the particular needs of the individual but if necessary, the lesson might concentrate on sight-reading, elements of theory, technique and developing aural skills,as well as on technical and creative sides of certain music pieces. However, the ambiance is always inspiring and friendly because my main aim is to encourage the student to do their best!

Subjects
  • Music
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (35 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I live and work in Bristol, previously having lived in Spain, Italy, Brazil and the UAE. I have a passion for languages, and have studied French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and Beginner's Arabic. I gained a 2.1 from UCL in Modern Languages (Spanish and Italian).

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years experience tutoring Spanish, French and Italian and teaching children with both Autism and Dyslexia. I am happy to offer support with writing, listening, reading or speaking. I tutor both one-on-one and groups of up to 3 people.

Tutoring Approach:

With the exception of grammar explanations, all tutoring will be conducted in the language we are studying. We will be using all types of media: written exercises and activities, songs and films to help improve listening, reading and writing skills. Grammar will be revised every session and homework will be set. Tutoring can be tailored to personal requirements (i.e. extra help with written work vs. grammar) and work will only be set in accordance with what the student is currently learning at school so as not to overburden the student.

Personal Description:
I am a component engineer working for Jaguar Land Rover in Coventry. I have a 2.1 class Bachelor's and Masters degree from the University of Leeds, studying Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering. I also worked with Airbus and Rolls-Royce via Atkins as an Aerospace Engineer previously.

I have a long history of tutoring students since completing O Levels (GCSE) myself. I did my O Levels under the Cambridge International curriculum in July 2007 with 8As (including Mathematics & Additional Mathematics) and 1B. I also did four A Levels under the Edexcel board in Jan 2010 including Pure Mathematics (A) and Further Pure Mathematics (A). I had an average score of 596 out of 600 in A level Maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring GCE & GCSE students for over 7 years. The subjects I have most experience in tutoring are Maths and Physics. I offer both one-to-one tuition and studying in a groups. I also offer a discounted price for 12 or 24hrs block booking, please contact for further details.

Tutoring Approach:

All subjects are taught through explanation, reasoning and home practices. Science is taught through understanding of the theory and practising problem solving while Mathematics is taught by showing the simple steps and with small tricks to remember the method or to remember common values such as sin 30=0.5. Primary English as a foreign language is taught through reading to expand vocabulary, writing to improve spelling and grammar as well as conversing to bring proficiency and comfort. After every session, the topic related exercises and homework are given for better understanding and to build student's confidence to solve any problem relating the topic.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (10 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (12 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi there! I`m a young professional drummer based in London. I am an enthusiastic and down to earth educator and have been providing drum tutoring for a number of years to all ages and abilities. I cover a wide range of styles and techniques, providing my students with the best tools to achieve their full potential.

I am happily married to my wife Ruth and love music, motor racing, films and good coffee! Thank you very much for your time.

Teaching Experience:

I received private drum tuition myself for a number of years from an excellent educator. I have been teaching drums to young children, teenagers and adults for over 4 years. I have taught classes at professional music schools, and provided one to one tuition as well. I have lots of experience reading and writing drum music, have been a professional musician for 10 years, and love it!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a thorough and practical approach to teaching. I believe in my students setting their own goals (with some suggestions from me), whilst encouraging and equipping them to achieve their best. I use a very down to earth and open approach to education. I hope to develop an excellent rapport with any student, so they can share their own goals and musical aspirations, so we can work together to achieve them. I am keen for my students to pursue practice in their own time, and provide them with the encouragement and inspiration to make that happen. I aim to build my students confidence greatly on the instrument, and give them a sense of real accomplishment in music.

I recently passed a DBS check for work within a school. I`ve been a member of the musicians union for many years, and can offer a great insight into the world of music through a professional`s eyes.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and very experienced primary school teacher who loves working with children to help them achieve the best they possibly can. I can provide you with a reliable, friendly and flexible service supporting your child with maths, reading, writing, phonics or speaking and listening. I treat each child as an individual and aim to make each tuition session enjoyable and successful, connecting the learning with your child's interests where possible, and always giving plenty of encouragement and praise.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified teacher who has taught locally in primary education for 21 years before more recently starting to home tutor children. I have successfully taught children with a wide range of abilities, children with special educational needs and children learning English as an additional language.

I have also had responsibility for leading the teaching of English across the year groups (speaking and listening, reading, writing and phonics).

Tutoring Approach:

I would come to your home for the tuition sessions, providing a familiar setting for your child's learning on a one to one basis.

Current parents and pupils with whom I work testify to my friendly, high quality professional approach and the difference that I can make. All tuition is specifically tailored to each child to help build their confidence whilst being as creative as possible to help them enjoy their learning. In this way I will also guide your child through the steps needed to improve their understanding and to gain confidence in their knowledge, skills and abilities.

Tutoring is available for children being homeschooled as well as for children requiring a little extra help out of school hours - term time and during school holidays.

Personal Description:
I am a motivated and dedicated person, with interests in SEN field but also teaching, HR and Psychology. I am currently writing an article about children with autism and hope to release it next year. I am a fully qualified teacher with BA and MA degree in Psychology, mainly the sector of SEN covering challenging behavior, emotional disorders and psychiatric illnesses.

I am very honest, reliable, sociable, punctual and dedicated person looking for the right opportunity to arise and give it my utmost to deliver and be a great member of a team, to share my knowledge and background with others, to learn from others and ultimately to help, support, guide and advice young children.

I am great with children, I have plenty of experience of different settings; in the past I have been working as a volunteer for many hospitals of children such as neurological and psychiatric infant clinics and what I done was to support and carry out certain therapeutic programs with SEN children in order to get them better and improve their lifestyle.

I have also worked a lot in nurseries, small schools and educational settings as part of my university course' teaching assistant and children adviser were my main roles. I enjoy supporting children and helping them improving their life, their way of thinking and answering their questions. I most enjoy working with those students who exhibit challenging behavior and to find ways of helping them coping with their difficult times, help them integrate and manage SENCO elements.

I am applying for this role because I feel there is so much within myself to be given away and teach young minds, I am very passionate of becoming a role model for our students and help them achieve better improved academic potential. I believe that I have good standard of knowledge and education, skills and patience, confidence and understanding to be able to teach young people and help them with their learning. I want to make an impact on their learning and future careers.

I am a very empathetic and understanding individual, with a positive outlook toward education, I value getting a solid level of knowledge and making the most of educational system, I am patient, firm and confident, punctual and precise always organized and in time with my deadlines, with a good level of patience and efficiency under pressure or work related stress. I have a high level of academic passion for learning, I write small pieces of research papers which regard mainly pupils with SEN and how we can improve their learning, I believe I have an academic approach and my mind is learning orientated at all times.

I have achieved a lot of educational experience, the opportunity to meet and impact students learning, I have gained a better understanding of the British curriculum and educational system, I have created a larger and better social environment as well as I have shared and gained knowledge through my work colleagues and students. I have developed my communication levels, social interaction and positive outlooks.
At the moment I support year 10 students in their lessons, I organize one to one tutoring sessions, I advice them on their learning and promote discipline, excellent vocabulary and social interaction with their peers.

I would love that in future to work within a school as a teacher of either primary or subject teacher in a secondary school, my main goal is to work and teach young minds, inspire them and help them achieve a better improved career.

Teaching Experience:

I have been home teaching for a few years now, started sept 2010 up to present, alongside day employment and working in schools I have always carried on home teaching and mentoring and tutoring in both psychology and sociology.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very open minded and flexible, always considering my tutees needs and investigating which methods of teaching work best for each individual to suit their personality and to help them achieve their best.
I am always punctual and very dedicated to helping people.

Personal Description:
I am currently doing my PGCE in Physical Education at the University of Buckingham while working full time at a Boarding School that caters for Year 9-13 for girls and boys. I teach both GCSE and A-Level Physical Education and can also teach BTEC Physical Education if the modules are specified beforehand. I have 9 GCSE's A-C, 3 A-Levels, 1 AS-Level and a BSc (Hons) Physical Education and Sports Coaching 2:1 from Anglia Ruskin University. I am 22 and am happy tutoring all ages.

Teaching Experience:

As I have said above I am currently doing my PGCE and teaching for 15 hours from Year 9 - Year 13 at an independent boarding school. The standard of lessons here are very high and I would feel comfortable tutoring all ages and abilities. I have taught GCSE and A-Level PE/Sport but would also love to get into tutoring English, Maths, Biology, English as a foreign langauge and basic French - I can do all of these myself to a good level and would love to pass on my knowledge to other people.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to do 1 or 2 hour sessions depending on what you would prefer, for younger students I would recommend 1 hour sessions but adults can be up to 2 hours. I am also happy to do 1 hour of one subject and then 1 hour of another. I can either do tutoring in your house, or in a library if that is better for the student. If they would like to do sessions over skype then I am happy to do that too, but I would like to meet face to face first.

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm a fully qualified, Cambridge educated teacher, specialising in English, History, Psychology & Politics. I am a trained English & History teacher & my degree background in Social & Political Sciences enables me to tutor in Politics & Psychology, alongside my classroom teaching and tutoring experience in these areas. I pride myself on being a fully-qualified teacher who is passionate about learning, transferring my skills and sharing my passion and love for my subjects with others. It is not everyone who is simply good at a subject or who has an impressive qualification in that discipline, who can actually teach it. Teaching itself is an art and a skill and I am proud to be able to use my personal success, pedagogical training and ability to support and inspire students.

I enjoy what I do and I love inspiring and encouraging my students to perform well and to maximise their potential. I have a high success rate and strong track record with my students & I currently teach up to A-level.

My own academic background includes A-level English (for which I obtained one of the top five marks across the country for my cohort of 2004), a 2:1 Bachelors degree from Cambridge University before completing my teacher training on the competitive 'Teach First' fast-track teacher training programme through which, I became a fully qualified English teacher.

I am now a full-time tutor whilst I establish my own business but in my most recent, long-term teaching role (3 1/2 years, full-time up to Dec 2016), I taught both English & history to GCSE level alongside 'Government & Politics' to A-level. I am also confident in the tutoring of Psychology, having studied Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) as part of my Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining an A grade at A-level, alongside private tuition success in this area.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, I look forward to working with you...! : )

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years' teaching experience as an English teacher, four years' experience teaching GCSE history & A-level Government & Politics and two years' experience tutoring A-level Psychology (which I studied as part of Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining a 2.1 and an A grade - full marks, at A-level).

I have taught, in full-time positions at high performing secondary schools across teaching English, history & politics full-time and serving as Head of Department in previous roles.

My previous experience also includes two-years of coordinating the whole-school's English & literacy programme for a secondary school in south London. This role included me ensuring that key facets and skills related to English, literacy and academic writing were embedded across the curriculum within each department, across the school (no easy feat!). I have also ran and coordinated English booster sessions for KS3 and GCSE retake students, helping struggling students at C/D borderline or lower achieve their English Language & Literature GCSE grades.

I have a strong track record of success with students, on average achieving 80 - 90% success rate with classes, with private tutoring students commonly improving by *at least* one grade or more. One of my proudest achievements was with a GCSE student who improved from an E grade to a B grade within seven months of tutoring and an A-level student, improving from a C grade at the end of AS to an A* by the end of A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to be rigorous and professional in my approach and fully believe that marking and assessment are key to success, so students must expect homework each session (for which parental support is essential) and I will spend time marking and giving detailed assessment feedback of student work, including marking tutorials with students so they can clearly see where and how they need to improve.

Whilst, I do have quite a driven approach, I am very personable and get a buzz out of making lessons fun, relevant and engaging with a focus on skills and application, as opposed to pure knowledge. I will often use reading materials and stimuli linked to the student's own personal interests, alongside any set texts needed for English literature, as teaching resources for my lessons so that students can build on their skills, whilst using material that motivates them. Furthermore, I apply this same approach to tutoring in history, politics and psychology, focusing on current affairs and contemporary developments in each subject to make the content interesting and relevant.

As a former literacy coordinator, I am also aware that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are some of the main hindrances to students' success across all subjects and year groups (adults included!), so I put GREAT emphasis on this in ALL my subjects.

On a whole, it is important to me to teach students not only to pass their exams but to actually help them develop the reading, writing, critical thinking and analysis skills that will help them for life. This is the goal I have for my students and for myself.
