Personal Description:
I am a postgraduate from the Documentary Photography course at Univeristy of Wales, Newport (graduated in 2000). I have worked as a professional freelance photographer since graduating giving photography classes, workshops and conferences to students of all levels and ages. I have extensive experience a reportage photographer, not only in undertaking magazine assignments but also wedding and portrait work. As a photographer and tutor I can offer an in-depth knowledge of darkroom practice as well as digital software editing(i.e. Photoshop, Capture One Pro, Lightroom), having worked both with film and digital media for the past 15 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have over ten years experience in giving photography classes and workshops to young learners (residential camps giving classes to children aged 11-16 years of age) and adults at all levels and abilities. I have taught an extensive range of photographic genres e.g Portraits, Studio Flash, Landscape, Creative Photography, Night Photography, Creating A Narrative(Reportage) and Wedding Photography.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is contextual and task based. I plan and work to the individual needs of the pupil(s), making sure that the classes are fun, interesting and relaxed. I believe with these elements the student feels more stimulated and the information in the learning process is absorbed more easily. One important factor is to concentrate on the student's individual learning potential by giving them confidence and positive feedback throughout the lessons. I can also use such tools as Skype and a whiteboard to provide online distance learning, when travel is not possible for myself or the learner.

  • 11+ (secondary) (£20 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I love teaching, it has been my life's work. For me it's more than just a profession, it's a state of mind and soul, when you as a teacher and a person want to constantly grow and develop, open new doors and look into new cultures. It isn't just for self-development but for sharing with students and carrying them with you. I can help you to learn Russian with confidence, step by step, at your own pace. I'd like to share the knowledge of Russian with you and to open the door to this huge world of Russia.

Teaching Experience:

Certified language teacher with more than 25 years of teaching experience both in-person and online (have taught at schools, institutes and universities). I've worked as a senior teacher at Kazan State University, one of the oldest and biggest universities in Russia.

For a few years I've been teaching spoken and business Russian to executives at blue chip companies among which is Johnson & Johnson.

Tutoring Approach:

I have mastered a wide range of methods which affords me to be quite flexible in teaching and to make each lesson a tailored one where the main principal is to simplify things, not to complicate them. I will help you to learn, step by step, at your own pace.

My priorities are my students' confidence and convenience while studying, and their satisfaction with the final results. That's why I'm so very proud to say that my students have achieved many of their goals, whether it's just a simple trip to Russia or passing their exams, living in bilingual families, helping their companies to strengthen relations with Russia and even working and living in Russia.

I provide my students with all the necessary materials as well as offer free interactive games that they can play after lessons to increase their vocabulary.

Personal Description:
As a post-graduate and former scientist, I have been tutoring chemistry for over 9 years now. I am an easy going, down to earth person with a natural flare for teaching. I really enjoy helping people to understand difficult concepts and I've always found science captivating. I am the kind of person who is willing to go above and beyond to help if I am able to. I have experience with young people of all ages, from crèche to holiday clubs, teaching in schools and leading teenagers at summer camps.

Teaching Experience:

I have enjoyed studying science at university level for over 8 years, during which time I was also involved in teaching undergraduate students in labs and tutorials. Since then I've held a post in a pharmaceutical lab developing cancer therapies, as well as teaching chemistry, physics and biology in secondary schools. I studied for a PGDE to become a secondary school chemistry teacher in 2010 (but had to end the course early due to severe morning sickness). As such, I have been able to practice and develop a variety of teaching methods and I'm up to date with the relevant exam board course outcomes and requirements. Over the past 9 years, I have professionally tutored many students, covering Standard Grade, Intermediate 2, National 5, Higher, Revised Higher and Advanced Higher Chemistry, Revised Advanced Higher Chemistry, Higher Human Biology and first year University level Biochemistry. About 70% of my students have achieved at least 2 or 3 grade jumps since they started tutorials with me.

I have several positive references and a CRB enhanced disclosure, which will be available to view on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach to tutoring. I like my students to feel at ease so that they are able to ask me anything. I'm of the mind set that no question is too silly to ask. My tutorials are structured and tailored around the individual student. Depending on the time we have available before an exam/NAB, we will identify key areas that the student experiences difficulty with and work through them addressing Knowledge & Understanding and Problem Solving, both of which are key to achieving the individual's desired grade. I endeavour to cover all topics of the course if we are able to, as I often find that there are areas that a student realises they are not up to scratch on once we start to revise it. I create personalised worksheets for my students and we spend a lot of time going through past papers, as well as developing exam/study technique.

As tutition progresses, I have witnessed a huge increase in the confidence that every one of my students hold in their own ability to problem solve as well as understand their given course work. I have often had comments from students and parents that I make things easy to understand and that the student is actually enjoying their course a lot more since commencing tutoring. I try to make myself available as much as possible to answer queries from tutees by e-mail or text, especially in the run up to class tests or exams.

Here's what one of my previous tutees had to say: "Dale tutored me throughout my higher Chemistry course and I honestly could not have got an A without her! She managed to explain the complex concepts essential to understanding chemistry in a way that I could relate to real life. She was always supportive and motivated me to do well. She was always flexible and able to fit in between my busy schedule. Even now when I have issues with my course work at Medical school I know I could drop her an e-mail with questions and she would be more than happy to help out. Overall Dale is fantastic, if you want a good grade whilst having fun she is your best bet!" - Eilidh.

All of my preparation time (typically 2 hours per session), travel time and travel expenses are included in the hourly rate. I prefer not to travel more than 7 miles from home but will still be happy to consider this.

Personal Description:
From being a science orientated student from my GCSEs to my A-levels, I went on to develop my expertise in biological sciences with a BSc in Genetics, in Queen Mary College, University of London, and then a MSc in Medical Genetics with Immunology. After working in an Immunology laboratory at Imperial College I went on to achieve a PhD in Immunology at The University of Birmingham focussing on Stem Cell Research.

Teaching Experience:

I have run small group teaching classes for undergraduates and postgraduates during my PhD and tutored undergraduates, who all achieved 2:1s or 1st class degrees. I have also privately tutored GCSE maths students and students for maths and science at SATs level.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my career I have taken every opportunity to teach in one to one and small group sessions and I have always been skilled in making complex information accessible to the audience depending on their needs and learning style.

Personal Description:
I am a fourth year medical student.

As a dedicated tutor, I focus not only on the results but also on exam techniques and providing a thorough understanding of the subject matter through discussions and examples.

Identifying any areas of difficulty within a topic, I devise tailored learning targets to maximise my clients' potential in order to achieve success.

With the following qualifications and my vast experience in private tutoring, I strongly believe that I will make a positive contribution to your learning progress.

● Degree (University of Bradford): BSc Clinical Sciences (Hons) - 2:1

● A levels (Crossley Heath Grammar) - Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Urdu

● O Levels (Cambridge certified) - including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, Maths, Additional Maths , Urdu

Teaching Experience:

My experience and interest in tutoring developed during sixth form when I started mentoring key stage 3 students in science and maths. The feedback I received from the pupils and staff was very encouraging and this response gave me immense satisfaction. I have been a private tutor ever since.

My experience ranges from key stage 3 to GCSE, A Level and even degree level students, including tutoring international students online whose first language wasn't English. My biggest achievement to date has been working with a GCSE maths student who was struggling due to self-confidence issues and family problems. With hard work and persistence, not only was I able to help him with his lack of self-belief but he went on to achieve an A* in his exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the key to success is a mixture of core learning, doing past papers, learning exam technique and revision to consolidate what has been learnt.

I utilise the following general approach:

● Identify preferred learning style
● Identify any topics/areas of difficulty
● Preparing a weekly timetable for students
● Devising a revision strategy for exams.
● Past papers, exam technique and revision
● Practice makes perfect!



I encourage clients to ask questions freely to create a comfortable but professional studying environment. After each lesson I invest a lot of time and effort planning the next scheduled session to ensure weekly set targets are being met.

The client is my priority and their success is my aim. I will go that extra mile to help so please do not hesitate to contact me.

Personal Description:
As a professional writer with a range of credits in tv and radio (Eastenders, Holby City, The Bill), I gained experience of working with schools and colleges to develop the literacy skills of learners of all ages. Perhaps uniquely, I am also a fully-qualified Maths teacher equipped with the subject knowledge to teach to A-level. Aside from Maths and English, I occasionally teach guitar and ukelele and play in a couple of local bands. Though there is no escaping hard work, I think learning should be fun. As both a parent and a teacher, I believe you get the best out people (young people included!) if you listen, and try to see the world from their point of view.

Teaching Experience:

I have recent experience of teaching in both state and independent schools, but appreciate not everyone thrives in these environments.

Tutoring Approach:

Without personalised support from a sympathetic expert who can focus on and understand their needs, many young learners find themselves lost or feeling they are not reaching their full potential. As a tutor, I aim to give that support, in a relaxed and fun environment. I aim to identify and overcome any fears that may be blocking progress. Starting from individual interests, enthusiasms and motivations, whilst building on existing skills of which they may not be aware, I aim to develop the confidence and feelings of success that ultimately lead to achievement.

Personal Description:
I love learning, but I haven't always felt that way. I currently read one book a week, while not so long ago as a student I truly hated reading. I had a tough time with developing relevant skills, procrastination and a very limited mindset while studying for my A Levels. This resulted in many set backs, high stress and low motivation. However, I learned something that has completely transformed my life in every way. I am determined to share this with others, which why I love working with young people.

While attempting to find a solution to my 'student problems' I developed a fascination with the human brain. I read extensively on the topics of psychology, neuroscience and learning. The knowledge and tools that I have discovered has helped me to overcome many issues that most students face daily. For this reason I have spent the last 5 years mentoring and coaching students of various ages, to empower them and motivate them to love learning as much as I do.

I am interested in politics, mental health, psychology, nutrition, metaphysics and many more.

My hobbies are yoga, meditation, Thai Chi and I also volunteer as a Mentor to a young adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my current role as an Academic Learning Coach at a sixth form college I design and teach study skills workshops, lessons and support students one to one. With over 2 years spent researching how the brain learns, I teach using evidence based methods and share all my knowledge about the brain with the students. I have taught over 800 students in the last year and worked with 100 students one to one.

As a Student Ambassador at the University of Sheffield I have over 2 years of experience teaching study skills workshops.

I have one year of experience tutoring/mentoring GCSE students in a school setting.

I have one year of experience of Mentoring A Level students in Philosophy and Ethics.

I have 2 months of experience teaching English as foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

Through my work with 100s of students I have developed a holistic approach to identifying and addressing individual needs of every student. I have created an extensive assessment form and a range of reflective activities to get to know the young person, what motivates them and what stops them from achieving.

During an initial assessment I identify the young persons mindset, confidence, study skills, writing skills, thinking skills, stress management skills, organisation skills, exam skills, goal setting skills and personal development skills.

After an assessment we decide on the type and number of sessions. I then work systematically through each area using coaching and mentoring techniques. There will be a small task for a student to complete after each session.

Often it might be beneficial to work together with a parent during certain sessions.

Support that I can offer:

Motivation
