Personal Description:
I am a qualified, approachable and professional tutor with nine years teaching experience. I am friendly, reliable, patient and I believe in building a student's confidence to help them achieve their potential.

I graduated at the University of Liverpool and achieved a Masters Degree in Chemistry with Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I then completed my teacher training at the University of Nottingham, before going on to work full time as a secondary school teacher.

Teaching Experience:

For the last nine years I have taught:

- Combined Science to Key Stage 3 (in a secondary school environment)
- Biology and Chemistry to GCSE and A Level (in a secondary school environment)
- A range of examination boards, including AQA, OCR, Edexcel and also the IGCSE qualification
- In both a comprehensive and an independent school
- One-to-one private tutoring sessions to students finding Biology, Chemistry and Science difficult
- One-to-one private tutoring sessions to students needing to achieve the highest grades in A Level Biology and Chemistry for entry into Medicine and Oxbridge

As well as teaching and private tutoring I also work as an Examiner so I have an additional insight into exam preparation.

My role as a teacher in an independent school also involves marking entry examinations, so I am able to prepare students for these exams.

During my industrial placement year at university I worked as a Research Scientist for GlaxoSmithKline, applying Biology and Chemistry to researching new pharmaceuticals. I frequently draw on this experience to stretch and challenge students needing to achieve the highest grades for University entry.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly enjoy motivating my students and I have built a variety of teaching resources to help students of all abilities. My students tell me that I help them break down complex information into more manageable sections. As well as preparing students for examinations I try to inspire them to enjoy and apply their subjects beyond the focus of exams. I strongly believe that learning should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone.

I understand how daunting it can be for parents and students to begin tuition so I am more than happy for parents to stay during my lessons. I can provide references and testimonials from my previous students and the schools I have worked for, as well as an enhanced CRB check. I am happy to set homework, mark examination papers and give detailed feedback, as well as organise additional lessons during examination periods.

Personal Description:
I am an honest and reliable person who works hard. I enjoy travelling, skiing and cycling. I really love my work and have decided to become a self employed tutor. I am currently living in Lowestoft, but am willing to travel as far as Norwich for employment.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1994 and have worked in Malaysia as well as the UK. I spent eight years in Malaysia working in private language schools. In addition, I spent two years teaching English to GCSE level at a boarding school.

More recently, I have worked in prisons teaching English to both foreign nationals and local prisoners. I have also taught ESOL at local colleges. I have had some experience of working with small groups of children. My specialist subject areas are English as a Foreign Language, English grammar and pronunciation.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student has different goals and needs. Therefore, I adopt a flexible approach to learning depending on what the student hopes to achieve. I believe that grammar is important and find that many students request help in this area. I also believe that reading is very important and have developed suitable resources for use with both adults and younger learners. I also work a lot on pronunciation and conversation skills. Generally, a course will include practise of all five skills with more emphasis on certain areas according to the individual needs of students.

Personal Description:
I am in my fifties and I have four grown up sons.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 20 years experience as a teacher and I am also a Dyslexia Specialist. I Can diagnose and support students with Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia, as well as Dyslexia. I have had a lot of success working with children and adults who have difficulty reading. I can help children increase their reading age, learn to spell, use punctuation and grammar, correctly and effectively. I can teach at primary, secondary and further education levels, and I have a great deal of experience working with adults who are struggling with basic skills in English and Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient and supportive teacher. I believe in giving praise and encouragement to all my students to build their confidence and self esteem. I will assess their learning needs and design an individual learning plan for them. Learning should be fun, so I constantly look for new innovative methods of teaching which I can use with my students. I also respect student's privacy and will not discuss details of anyone I am working with.

Annie has enjoyed teaching Functional English (equivalent to GCSE English) for the past two years. As a published writer/novelist, her passion for writing is apparent in every lesson - whether for children or for adults.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Hannah. I am 23 years old and have recently migrated from New Zealand. I am a qualified midwife but over the last seven years I have done some part-time private tutoring with secondary school-aged students in Mathematics and English. I also have extensive experience in the hospitality industry and in private nannying. I have always loved teaching and enjoy celebrating the achievements of the students I work with. In my spare time I love to travel, spend time with family and friends and be in the outdoors.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified midwife but over the last seven years I have done some part-time private tutoring with secondary school-aged students in Mathematics, English and occasionally French. Most of the students I have worked with have been between the ages of 12 and 16 years. Although my experience is with the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (N.C.E.A), the New Zealand equivalent of G.C.S.E and A-levels, I have seen that most of the content is transferrable. I have received overwhelming positive feedback from the students I have tutored over the last few years and have helped them to achieve excellent grades in their internally and externally assessed examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I find the tutoring sessions are most effective when done face-to-face (instead of over Skype). I also prefer if the student has provided the content they wish to cover prior to the session (ideally this would be past examinations with worked answers), so that we can make the most out of the scheduled time. In the first meeting I like to gage how the student best learns and then use this to plan future sessions.

Personal Description:
Masters from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (distinction) and first class English degree from the University of St Andrews. I have experience teaching at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and tutoring Essay Writing, Drama and English. I love working with young and adult learners, helping them to achieve their goals and to enjoy the working process. I specialise in the following areas:

ENGLISH at all levels - I tutor English from primary, through key stages, to higher education levels. I help students get through their exams, enjoy literature, and achieve the grades they need.

WRITING A GOOD ESSAY FOR YOUR DEGREE - Helping students transition from writing school to university level essays in all arts subjects. This is often a difficult leap, and I provide tutoring on structuring essays, citing academic sources and referencing, and clarifying one's argument. I also tutor adult learners returning to studies after a long gap, and undergraduate university students who are adjusting to a postgraduate level of academic writing.

VOICE and PUBLIC SPEAKING - Do you have to give a presentation at work, or does your child need to feel happier speaking up in school? Are you frustrated about being told you are "softly spoken" and would like to project your voice without straining? Through voice exercises, presentation practice and relaxation exercises, I can give you the tools to speak confidently and engagingly (without that crippling fear). I adapt this work to all ages.

ACTING CLASSES and AUDITIONING FOR DRAMA SCHOOL - my acting & performance skills were honed at RADA (a lead drama school) and I use this experience to tutor students who wish to audition. I help them select monologues that suit them, and coach them through the preparation process. I use games, text exercises, movement training and mock auditions to give them the best chance of success. I also teach voice and relaxation techniques to handle nerves on the day.

CREATIVE WRITING - I have training in creative writing, playwriting and dramaturgy. If there is a story you'd like to write I can help you through the process and teach exercises to counter writer's block.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored English for a range of ages, including school students, adult learners and university students from Birkbeck, University of London. I also have experience with M.E / Chronic Fatigue young people working outside of school.

I have been a visiting tutor for the Short Courses department of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, teaching Shakespeare, contemporary text and devising theatre. My other drama tutoring work includes Leuchars Community Drama, Haringey Shed and Notes of Fun.

Tutoring Approach:

My goal is to tutor my students to feel confident in their subject, and rise to the challenge of any exams, auditions or interviews that may come their way in their academic and professional lives.

To achieve this, it is essential to me that students enjoy the tuition process. This encourages them to improve in their chosen field, without feeling forced to wrestle something they hate.

I believe that to enjoy learning, a focused one-on-one approach is essential. As schools and universities have so many students through their doors, they cannot provide full assistance for all. In academic writing and English in particular, too many students fall through the cracks of the main system and lose confidence in their abilities. My job is to prevent that.

I therefore tailor my tutoring to the needs of each individual and discuss thoroughly with them at the start of the process what they want to get out of the sessions, and what difficulties they would like to overcome. All my exercises, games and homework are therefore specifically tailored to meet those needs and revitalise their interest in this subject.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified high school teacher with 18 years' experience of teaching English, Media Communication, Drama and Study Skills to 11-19 year olds. I have held the posts of Head of Drama, Director of Creative Arts and I have led teaching and learning across a range of senior leadership roles, including Principal. I previously worked for the BBC and was awarded a BAFTA for my role in a TV documentary series. I am educated to Masters degree level and hold a 2:1 Bachelor of Arts degree in Digital Media, Politics and Performing Arts. Prior to entering the teaching profession, I gained industry experience in marketing with Lego UK Ltd. I live in Wrexham, North Wales with my young family and I count playing guitar, filmmaking, photography, cricket and graphic design as my main interests.

My experience as a classroom teacher and school leader has developed my expertise in a range of educational strategies, including: personalising learning; active engagement; cooperative learning; maximising achievement; leadership and innovation

Embracing the challenge of leading a school in difficult circumstances, I led a dynamic and vibrant community committed to achieving success for all learners, raising aspirations and learning together in a supportive and orderly environment. My overarching leadership secured sustainable improvements in the quality of teaching which, in turn, led to significantly improved outcomes for students which saw the academy move from 'Special Measures' to a 'good' Ofsted judgement.

- I will place all learners firmly at the centre of the learning experience
- I will lead all learners towards understanding how they learn best and be mindful that academic success is underpinned by aspiration, healthy levels of self-belief, stress management, courage, organisational ability, resilience, creativity and motivation. And that's to name but a few!
- I will hold the highest expectations of all learners and craft memorable learning activities that will encourage a love of learning
- I understand that behind every set of examination results, irrespective of the scores, must stand a person who is equipped, personally, socially and culturally, to prosper in the 21st Century. For this reason, academic tutoring/coaching will always focus on personal as well as academic development.

The Study Skills coaching I offer can help resolve a wide range of common issues that can be barriers to effective learning.If you answer 'yes' to one or more of the following questions, study skills coaching could well be an investment that brings real value to your child and their future:

- Is your child's effort beginning to slip?
- Do behavioural issues exist in the school setting?
- Is your child frequently getting detentions for forgetting homework or being late?
- Do school reports show a dip in academic attainment?
- Does your child struggle to contribute to classroom activities, for example, answering questions or speaking publicly?
- Does your child give up too easily?
- Would your child benefit from improved social skills?
- Does your child become anxious around examination periods?
- Does your child require increased focus and attention prior to key examinations, e.g. entrance examinations, Year 6 standardised attainment tests and GCSE exams?

Flexible, personalised programmes can commence at any point during the year.

The first session is essential for the success of the programme going forward. In this session, we evaluate current learning strengths and weaknesses in the individual student. In order to get a full picture of the student's learning priorities, we undertake the following activities to determine areas for improvement and the best conditions for success:

- reflections from the student on how they feel about their learning experience
- a learning survey - it's good fun and gives the child/student a really useful exercise in self-reflection
- analysis of recent written reports which contain teacher comments and grades recording attainment, effort, attitude to learning, punctuality, etc. School reports can vary in format so it may be that not all this detail is available
- we ask that a parent/teacher is involved for the duration of this first session to provide their own reflections on the learning profile of the child
- completion of a personalised learning contract whereby the child/student, parent/teacher and coach agree on the required conditions needed for the child/student to be successful during the programme.
