Personal Description:
I am a 26-year old girl with a degree in History of Art and a Primary Postgraduate Certificate of Education and Qualified Teacher Status. I also have a DBS police check. I will start as a Year 3 teacher in September but have experience and passion teaching all ages and all subjects. If the subject you want is not written on my profile, please ask me if I teach it and I will be completely honest about my experience. I love teaching children and adults of all ages and find tutoring to be absolutely thrilling.

Teaching Experience:

I have just completed my QTS and PGCE in primary education, following 2 and a half years teaching English as a Foreign Language in China (and learning Mandarin) with 4 years EFL experience prior to that, teaching both adults and children of varying nationalities.

I am comfortable and knowledgeable in most subjects and enjoy teaching children, teenagers and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I cater lessons to the individual needs of the student. I spend the first lesson getting to know the student's interests and learning handicaps so as to make my lessons relevant, engaging and enjoyable.

Personal Description:
I am a Master of Arts graduate of Choreography and a Bachelor of Arts graduate of French language and literature. My mother tongue is greek but I am also a native speaker in english because I was born in Australia. I live in London and don't mind travelling within London. I am friendly, communicative and very outgoing so feel free to contact me for any tuitions :)

Teaching Experience:

Teaching is one of my favourite activities because it is a way to share my knowledge with young people and also with adults. I have been teaching various subjects since 2006 which include dance, french language, greek language and english language. I always have my classes organised to achieve the goals that my students have in a specific amount of time, not time-wasters please:) I am currently a Visiting Lecturer in Universities.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring for me must have a methodology and a structure. It always depends on the needs of the student, the goals and the time available. As long as you know your aim, we can work around it together.

Personal Description:
I am a very patient and dedicated French native speaker. I tailor my lessons to the students' needs and expectations. Tutoring is not just guiding students through their learning but also giving them confidence and enabling them to experience lessons in a relaxed, friendly and yet serious way.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for over 9 years and have a very diverse experience as I have been working in an Alliance francaise in Mexico, in a language centre, two adult education centres and two tutoring agencies. My first teaching experience was a French Language Assistant in Preston, Lancashire. I have had students ranging from 7 years old to 70+, from absolute beginners to advanced levels. I've given private and group classes and intensive courses (up to 7h a day) in schools and companies. I have over 4500 teaching hours, including more than 3200 hours of private tuition (basically in French Literature, French and English as Foreign Languages; 2500 of which in the UK).

Coming from France where I taught French Literature to a student preparing a diploma in Accounting, I have now been in the UK for four and a half years. I am occasionally in charge of groups of beginner students in a language school and give private tuition (self-employed as well as with two tutoring agencies). At the moment, I give French private tuition for the preparation of GCSE and IGCSE, DALF C1, CNED CE1 and CM2 (French school curriculum, distance learning) and university essay writing. I also tutor other students looking to learn or improve their French communication skills for personal reasons.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very flexible and know how to adapt my teaching to the specificities and demands of the students.
Understand and be understood! That's the main thing when you learn a language, be able to communicate.

Whether you are a student taking GCSE or A levels in French and need confidence for your exam or you are a professional willing to have a proper conversation with your French colleagues or clients, or just want to enjoy your next holidays in a French-speaking country, whether on a daily basis or intensive classes, we will first talk about what YOU are looking for and how I will help you to achieve your language goals.

Personal Description:
I am a well published Stem Cell Scientist at Imperial College London, currently working on regenerative medicine-based solutions for Osteoarthritis. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of biomedical research, biology and chemistry teaching and scientific writing. I have been fascinated with the way human mind works and learn - having tried several teaching techniques with my students here at Imperial College, I am confident that students under my guidance and their hard work usually stay within top 5% of the class.

Teaching Experience:

I have had a number of MSc and MRes students in the past and have had primary, secondary, GCSE and A-level, and college teaching experience in the past. Currently I am tutoring a number of GCSEs, A-levels, undergraduates and masters students and lab-based research projects / theses.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student has his / her positives and negatives - I first analyse them and then slowly work on their negative points (with a good push to their confidence levels). Additionally, I believe for understanding any science subject (biology, chemistry or physics), learning fundamentals is extremely important for students to further understand complexity of life (more important if they choose to do biology / biomedical science / medicine / life science). So, my approach has always been understanding things more analytically.

Personal Description:
Juan is a rare artist with a great deal of intellect and an in depth understanding of piano, composition and music technology. He has been linked to what he describes as a "marvelous instrument: the piano" since the tender age of three. Eight years later, he made his fist concert appearance in his hometown Estancia Santa María de La Armonía. Ever since, he has been a regular performer throughout the theater halls of Argentina, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.


Teaching Experience:

8 years of one to one tutoring.
I have prepared students for all ABRSM and Trinity College exams including GRADES and DIPLOMAS with 100% success rate.
I also train other teachers entering for Masters at RCM and RAM. I believe in a modern approach to music learning that's why I encourage my students to develop a their own taste for music. I also give my students the option of start making their own videos here in my studio where I have all the necessary equipment.

Tutoring Approach:

Juan believes that people connect to music at different times of their lives. As you watch him work, it is stunning to observe how he can be involved in the details and never lose sight of the big picture. His approach to piano pedagogy is very unique, one which simultaneously combines music technology, playing, reading and writing.
​
As a piano tutor, his greatest challenge is to instigate a hidden and deep rooted spark within each of his protégés. He believes that everyone should learn at their own pace, and accommodates this by providing tailored programmes. He has been very successful in preparing students for the ABRSM and Guildhall Trinity Exams.

Personal Description:
Hello fellow mathematicians!

I'm Chris, a 23 year old maths PhD student at Brunel University. I was originally granted a School Studentship to fund my studies but then soon after starting my research I was upgraded to an ESPRC grant. I study maths because I enjoy it, and enthusiasm to teach it comes part of this package. For A-level and higher I specialize in pure maths, so algebra, calculus etc so if you happen to be struggling with areas such as these then I'm your guy. Any level lower than A-level I will also be happy to help with.

I do not have a current CRB check but I'm sure I could get one if it is needed - I haven't commited any crimes trust me.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst in 6th form and during my undergraduate years I often went back to my secondary school to help out in the maths department.

For the past academic year I have taught many seminars for foundation, 1st and 2nd year undergraduates. These have ranged from 2-100 students per seminar.

I tutored in the Maths Cafe which is to aid student's revision before their summer examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

Since I only graduated a year ago, I understand and can relate to difficulties students may face. With this in mind, I can offer the best form of tutoring in a way that I feel would have definitely helped me.

Personal Description:
I am currently doing a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Reading. I finished my Masters in July 2015 and received a First Class. Have tutored several people throughout my time at university, ranging from KS2 to third year university Maths students, including someone studying for their PGCE numeracy test.

Teaching Experience:

Have tutored several people throughout my time at university, ranging from KS2 to third year university maths students, including someone studying for their PGCE numeracy test.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very comforting and relaxed approach to tutoring. Too many students are not reaching their full potential because they are intimidated by the subject, and so can't break it down into logical steps. Tutoring styles should be dynamic and flexible, and for students who are already excelling in subjects, you should push them past the level they are at currently at and make them strive for excellence.

Personal Description:
I am a mature, bubbly and reliable individual; I have a passion for learning and thrive in passing my knowledge onto others. I am currently completing my Biology MPhil (Master of Philosophy) degree at Newcastle University; I am also a keen musician and have previously worked as a Music Teacher. I possess experience of successfully tutoring pupils of all ages; I take a flexible approach to teaching by playing to pupils' strengths, improving their weaknesses and exploring the best, most enjoyable way of getting new and difficult material across.

Teaching Experience:

Past Experience:
~Biology Demonstrator (Newcastle University)
~Biology Tutor (Self-Employed)
~Junior Music Teacher (Peterhead Music and Rock School)

I have extensive experience of working in educational settings. I was employed as a Junior Music Teacher at Peterhead Music and Rock school. There I taught from the ages of 4 - 40 keyboard, piano and musical theory. I learnt to adopt a patient, confident and professional approach and to build an instant rapport with pupils of all ages. I adapted my teaching style for the needs of each pupil and individually planned all lessons within good time. I prepped many of my students for exams (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, ABRSM, accredited), for example one student achieved a Distinction Grade 1 piano whilst another obtained a Merit for her Grade 5 theory. I carried this experience on to my role as a Biology Tutor where I followed the curriculum and successfully aided a pupil in improving their grade from a D to a B.

While completing my Masters degree I worked at Newcastle University as a School of Biology Demonstrator. Through the role of Demonstrator I have gained valuable experience of helping to run undergraduate laboratory practical classes alongside experienced technicians and academics. My main tasks were to supervise the students; I would ensure they adhered to safety protocols and promote their understanding of the practical by assisting with any queries they may have. I developed a good rapport with both staff and students by adopting a friendly, hard-working and patient approach.

Tutoring Approach:

As mentioned in sections above; I am a very patient and friendly individual. My approach to tutoring depends entirely on the student I am working with. I very much like to tailor sessions to every individuals' needs and abilities, ensuring that the learner dictates the pace we work at.

Personal Description:
I'm a student heading to The Queens College, Oxford in 2017 to study Classics with an emphasis on Philosophy, my main area of interest. Im the oldest of five children and generally a very patient, bookish person who tends to get on with people well. Throughout my schooling I was told that my goals were unachieveable because of dyslexia, and I have worked hard to prove that to be false, so I am dedicated to helping others when ordinary schooling isn't quite enough - be that to push an A to an A* or pass an exam or just improve skills in any given area.
Outside academics, I play the piano and enjoy spending time with my family and my dogs.

Teaching Experience:

During school I took part in several different tutoring programmes; teaching science master classes to underprivileged 4-8 year olds, tutoring for the 11+ and CE exams, tutoring for GCSE level students in Maths, all three sciences, English, and religious studies, and tutoring fellow AS and A Level students during sixth form. These have ranged from people who want extra revision and marked work before exams to people who are struggling and retaking exams multiple times, to people who are just learning English. In total I have around 150-200 hours of tutoring experience.

I've worked with many people with learning difficulties and disabilities, and am very experienced in finding ways to help people learn and revise. Often people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and other learning difficulties struggle to learn in conventional ways, and having had to be unconventional myself, I'm committed to helping people learn in ways which work well for them. One of my brothers is Autistic and non verbal, and I work with him using his special interests to make the subject engaging and working with text and images.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is centred around the premise that every person learns in a different way, and every person deserves to fulfill their goals and potential.

When tutoring younger children, I make learning fun through games and grounding the work in their interests; for example, when I was teaching English as a foreign language to 4 year old twins, we played games like hide and seek and football, where they would win if they used the right English words.

Of course, every subject requires a different kind of teaching; English language gcse can be practiced with excerpts from students favourite books or writing about favourite tv shows, whereas psychology A Level is largely about evaluative skills, so critical conversations about theories and studies are key. Each subject cultivates specific skill sets, and I aim to work with students on their own weaknesses and help them perfect their strengths; I will mark work and discuss it with them in depth, create handouts and revision notes with them, and work through papers and questions with them.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a newly qualified teacher in Primary education. I have just completed my studies at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Swansea. I have over 4 years experience working in secondary schools with children with behaviour, emotional and social difficulties, and another 4 years experience working and training in primary schools as a classroom teacher. I also have ample experience of working with adults with complex learning difficulties, including autism, epilepsy and speech impediments, amongst other needs.
I am looking to tutor throughout the summer holidays and potentially continue this into term-time whilst I am seeking full-time employment. I love helping young learners to find their passion for education and I will always adapt my teaching style to suit their individual needs. I am used to differentiating work to allow all children access to the curriculum and I aim to make learning as fun and engaging as possible.
My interests include travelling, arts and crafts, exercise/healthy living, baking, and learning new things! I am also a patient and caring person and I do not shy away from a challenge :)

Teaching Experience:

4 years placement and training experience in various primary schools - from Early Years provision, right the way through to Year 6.
Over 4 years of employment in secondary schools - mainly working with children with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
I have a degree in Inclusive Education, and I have just completed my PGCE for Upper Primary as a newly qualified teacher.
I am also fully trained in Read Write Inc and as an ELSA (Emotional Literacy).

Tutoring Approach:

Enthusiastic, passionate and engaging. I am consistent with behaviour and boundaries, but above all fair and considerate of the needs of the child. I will adapt my teaching style to accommodate the learner and ensure that they understand, rather than just recite. I am passionate about preparing children with the skills necessary to help them succeed to be the best that they can be.

Personal Description:
Being at the age where I'm young enough to still bond with the students on a more social level, whilst also having years of experience to be professional and engaging, is a rare and useful combination of traits for me as a Tutor. I began tutoring for a couple of years at Sixth Form and found I really enjoyed bonding with the students and building a constructive learning environment, and since then have gone on to do an undergraduate degree and one year of teaching.

Otherwise, my life at the moment is combining travel with work and studying. I studied in Copenhagen for 1 year on the ERASMUS program, just returned from teaching at a university in Beijing for one year, will teach in Spain for a few months before doing a Master's program in 4 different countries (Germany, Argentina, India, South Africa).

I'm undecided as to whether I want to go into teaching and lecturing, or instead Diplomacy and International Politics. So, for now, i'm gaining experience and qualifications, learning languages, and seeing the world whilst it's easy to.

Teaching Experience:

Short Form:

- 2 years tutoring whilst at Sixth form in Wilson's Grammar School
- 1 year in Beijing teaching English and Western Philosophy at Beijing International Studies University, including IELTS
- Alongside teaching in Beijing, numerous tutoring roles, from 7-year-olds to the Sports Director of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Committee

Tutoring Approach:

Largely influenced by Stephen Krashen's ideas on the Affective Filter when learning. Essentially the barrier that we sometimes put up in our minds when learning then prevents lots of information actually going in, due to a combination of emotional and motivational factors. The child is worried or scared, dislikes their teacher or learning environment, thinks that they're terrible at the subject so don't see the point, and so on. So I feel the biggest determining factor in how well the lessons go is based on initially bonding with the student and encouraging them in a safe and sometimes fun learning environment.

What we do in the lessons will largely depend on the subject, but for example with entrance exams, we would largely drill through old past papers, find areas of confusion of weakness, then spend a lesson talking through how you tackle those particular questions and building up their understanding of what's required. Taking a page from the Michel Thomas method of learning: Don't rush anything - to remember is just to have properly understood, and once you've achieved that you can move on without needing to come back to it.

Homework and Workbooks recommended but at their Guardians discretion.
