Personal Description:
A full member of the Tutors Association, I have much tuition, coaching, lecturing and training experience; both one-to-one and in groups.
Holding several relevant academic qualifications (including a degree in Maths & Physics), I am also a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Scientist, and full Corporate Member of the Institute of Physics.
During my career, I have held several senior management positions within several British based companies.
Having a fundamental love of virtually all things mathematical and scientific, I very much enjoy passing on that enthusiasm & knowledge to 'A' Level students, with the aim of enhancing their confidence and skills, & boosting subsequent examination performance.
I hold full and current enhanced DBS accreditation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been offering 'A' Level tuition in Maths & Engineering since 1997
The vast majority of students with whom I have worked have either achieved, or surpassed, their target grades.
During the last academic year (2015/2016)) I was pleased to work regularly (typically weekly) with thirteen 'A' Level Maths students (from Bude, Holsworthy, Launceston, Exeter and Barnstaple), one student studying Electrical Engineering at Cardiff University, and one studying Maths with the Open University.

Tutoring Approach:

Being an active participant in, and supporter of, the whole education process, I have also held a four year LEA Governorship at a school in mid-Devon.
My approach to tutoring is, first of all, to talk openly with any potential student (ideally with parent or guardian present) in order to find out what is required, the problems, issues etc.
I treat all students as adults, and do not patronise or talk down to them, ie I treat each one as a mature individual. My aim is to work closely with each student, in the way that best suits him/her, in order to empower him/her with higher levels of knowledge and ability. The result being that their confidence and skill levels increase to those necessary to achieve the best possible exam grades. I encourage my students to actively participate in the tutoring process; to challenge, and to ask questions and discuss all aspects of the work content.
I coach all my students in exam techniques, with emphasis on layout, showing working, best use of time etc.
Last, but certainly not least, I believe it to be of fundamental importance to work with all my students in complete confidence; before, during and after any tutoring involvement.

View Crofton's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
Before becoming self employed Crofton worked as an industrial research scientist in Electronic materials and Bioelectronics at the Plessey Research centre, then as a Department head (Nanotechnology Sensors) with GEC Marconi in Materials Technology until 2001. He now works as a consultant to the DTI and EC in Medical/physics research during the day while devoting the after school hours to Private tuition. With his previous experience in interviewing prospective job applicants and sourcing funding for research and development Crofton is able to help candidates at A level to present their strengths in university applications and is well placed to discuss possible progression routes.

Teaching Experience:

Crofton offers tuition in Biology, Chemistry and Physics at AS and A2 levels and Maths at GCSE. He is a graduate of University College, Oxford where he gained his degree in Biochemistry in 1975. He has A levels in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths . Since becoming self employed he has worked for over 12 years as a private tutor in the sciences typically teaching 15 to 18 hours a week mainly after school hours.

Tutoring Approach:

Crofton tailors the tuition to the individual needs of the learner, using his extensive knowledge of the subject he patiently explains the fundamentals of processes, thereby helping the student to grasp more advanced concepts. Exam success has resulted for many students through intensive one-to-one sessions, especially through coaching in exam technique by systematically doing past papers followed by intensive analysis of answers with the mark scheme. It goes without saying that the learner's commitment to self-study and thorough revision is the key factor in achieving good results. For this reason the student should be prepared to commit to one hours home work each week.
Crofton has helped many students to achieve the grade they need for admission to their chosen University course, including helping many students into medical and veterinary College where A grades in Chemistry are mandatory. He is experienced in the syllabus of all the major exam boards including OCR, Edexcel and AQA. Many students start private tuition after having been disappointed with their AS results and stay on through to their A2 exams, often improving their grades by two or three places. This works well on the basis of one hour's tuition a week and approximately one hour's homework.

Personal Description:
I'm an easy going, empathetic, supportive and a very patient tutor who is dedicated to all my students and teaching Maths. I'm very thorough in my teaching and ensure no stone is left unturned in preparing for my student's maths exams/tests. I enjoy helping my students reach their full potential and achieve their aims. I encourage all my students to take a general interest in Mathematics as this helps them in doing well. I do 1 to 1 tuition and also tutor small groups of no more than 4 students. I teach all levels up to and including A-Level and for all exam boards (AQA, EDEXCEL and OCR). I have thus far been very successful as a Maths tutor and hope to continue this trend especially in light of the tremendous performance of my students in the 2016 academic year. I specialize in helping my students obtain grades A-A* in their exams. Every GCSE (Higher) and A-Level Student I have ever tutored has gained grades A* to C.

Teaching Experience:

I'm a Teacher of Mathematics at a local academy in Luton (11-19 year olds) and have had 6 years experience in private tuition, teaching Mathematics at all levels up to and including A-Level. Teach all abilities and ages.

Tutoring Approach:

The aim of my tuition lessons is 2 fold. Firstly it is to give my students a thorough understanding of the Mathematics modules/topics they are studying so that they are able to gain an excellent foundation in studying Mathematics or courses that have a substantial Mathematical content at a higher level. Secondly I give my students intensive and vigorous exam preparation so that they do extremely well in their examinations and achieve high grades. This is usually done by by doing many past papers under exam conditions. I also set my students difficult questions to complete (from many different sources and references). These questions are more difficult than what would normally appear in their actual exams. The purpose of making my students do these questions is so that they are totally prepared to tackle any questions that their exams or tests may throw at them.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher all my professional life, although for ten years I worked in the theatre as an actor, fight director and singer. I love teaching and I love music. Most importantly, perhaps, I have never stopped learning!

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English, French and German for 25 years. I studied English at Oxford; worked in Germany, studied in Spain and have my main home in France. My first GCSE Spanish class all achieved A* and A grades. I recently trained in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, so I feel up to date with current teaching methodology. Nevertheless, I adapt my teaching style and methods to benefit my tutees. I teach adult evening classes and give private tuition in French, Spanish, German and English Literacy.

Tutoring Approach:

I will come to your home and talk to you about what your learning requirements are and will tutor in order for you to maximise your potential in line with your requirements. All tutees have different learning styles and preferences, too, so I will pick up on yours and shape our lessons accordingly. We will work proactively, and there will be specific goals and targets for each lesson so that you will be able to chart your progress. My colleagues think I have a great sense of humour, and I have sometimes found it to be helpful in a teaching situation. I am, however, totally professional in the conduct of my lessons and tutorials.

Personal Description:
My name is Lisa, I have a passion for the Martial Arts and love nothing more than teaching others. I have trained in Karate and Kickboxing prior to Taekwondo which has been my life for the past 18 years. I hope to be able to pass on my experience and knowledge to others. I have a venue available in Keighley and Bingley for private tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

4th Dan Black Belt in the Martial Art of Taekwondo with over 15 years experience of teaching. I hold the 3rd Class Foreign Instructors qualification from completing my training at the World Taekwondo Headquarters in Seoul, South Korea.

I have additional qualifications in the fitness industry where I formally worked as a Gym Manager.

I offer private 1-1 tuition in self-defence and Taekwondo; I also teach Martial Arts to young people as part of West Yorkshire Police's Safer Schools initiative and have experience of teaching women's groups, young people in community organisations and individuals.

Tutoring Approach:

I am keen to be able to help others and pass on my knowledge and experience. I will teach you basic techniques to keep you safe & which work. Be aware that some instructors may show you fancy techniques but these aren't realistic in a dangerous situation, the key is to make you feel more confident, more aware and feel able to deal with a situation effectively should one arise. The basic techniques are the ones you can learn and master and which will hopefully keep you safe. It's not about strength but about technique and being knowledgeable in a situation.

Personal Description:
I am a 23 year-old postgraduate student in Durham University, with a masters in mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

In 2010-2012 I was the initiator of a volunteer project called 'Fairy tales in Pictures'. The project involved working, communicating and interacting with children with learning difficulties, playing games with them and teaching them to tackle different tasks. This was an opportunity to develop my communication and listening skills regarding various kinds of people, becoming extremely aware of the difficulties children can have with learning and understanding new things, and how these difficulties can be tackled.
I have helped my 11-year-old sister with her maths and English language-related lessons over the years. This has helped me understand children better and sense when they are in need for more training and explanation in particular areas. I have also helped friends' children with their problems, offering help, guidance and advice.

Tutoring Approach:

The key method to learning mathematics is by solving problems and dealing with examples. My approach is to give a clear explanation on the theory and then focus on different types of examples to help children understand things through practice. After several examples, I encourage children to attempt problems themselves at first, then ask questions and give small hints, guiding the child to obtain the correct answer as independently as possible. I give homework for children to practice their newly acquired knowledge, and I check if they've done the homework correctly on the next lesson.

Personal Description:
I have recently moved to Scotland from London with my partner who has taken up a lecturing job at Gray's school of art. I have been looking for work to support my practise as an artist.I came to Art in my 30's as a mature student via short courses. This form of education is a great way of developing artists through a different route than more traditional means while opening up opportunities to a diverse field of practitioners. I feel very passionate about education and how it has transformed my own life which has given me fantastic opportunities that I could never have thought of.

My own work involves an idea of process and gesture through the daily practise of being an artist.
I paint tools that I have used in my job as a gardener which has funded my practise. I paint these with either close observation or purely from memory. I continue this with large scale paper relief drawings which I have displayed in shop windows, mud walls in Morocco with chalk and charcoal, and more traditional gallery spaces. With these I explore the relationship between the hand and the eye, nature and culture, the raw and the cooked and how this dichotomy exists in the historical and contemporary art. For example I am interested in the Gesture of the hand in Velazquez, Titian and Tintoretto as apposed to established Renaissance painting which where drawn and then filled with colour. I see a mirror to this in more conceptual art such as Art and Language or Sol Le Witt compared to a gestural painters such as Philip Guston, Morandi or Joan Mitchell.

I am Recent graduate of the slade MFA program and I have been consistently exhibiting since such as the Creekside open selected by Richard Deacon/Lisa Milroy, the BFA futures, and currently at York College and the Zetta Hotel in Clarkenwell. I have also been establishing a drawing and painting workshop at Marymount International school and have given talks on my work and the benefits of doing an MA.

Teaching Experience:

Present- Gray's School of Art 'Foundation Portfolio Plus'.(Short Courses)

2016- Marymount International School, 'Drawing from a Personal Object' workshop, ongoing.
Working with a class of 25 students i worked with an idea of using a personal object as a subject while exploring the idea of memory and observation with gesture of the hand.

2015- Kingston University, MA presentation
Before a class of third year degree students I gave a presentation of my work which, explained how doing an MA had influenced and changed my work. I also focussed the talk on application and interview techniques and guides.

Awards
2015 The Desiree Prize for Painting
2015 Nominated for the Land Securities Studio Award
2015 The Bergman Residency, Taroudant, Morocco
2012 The AP Fitzpatrick Prize for Painting

Tutoring Approach:

I believe drawing to be at the basis of all work. I see having a firm grasp of drawing from life as a key skill behind any artistic endeavour.

My own skills include:

Drawing and painting.
Oil, acrylic and watercolour techniques, uses and preparation
Extensive knowledge of grounds, substrates and supports.
Working with clay, wood and metal
Photography and documentation of work by with Photoshop and a DSLR
Bronze Casting
Current issues and developments in contemporary art

Personal Description:
Hi there,

I'm Lauren and I'm currently teaching a range of S1-S6 classes in Dumfries.

I studied at Strathclyde University where I gained a Joint Honors Degree in Physics with Teaching.

I have tutored since the age of 16 when I was still in school myself and tutored 9 students while I was studying for my degree with all students doing well in whatever academic exams they were working for (P4 Independent Schools Mathematics testing - Higher).

I am used to working with teenagers in and out of school having been involved in leading youth groups, Church groups and dance groups as a young adult.

Teaching Experience:

I carried out my Probation year in 2014 and gained a permanent post in 2015 in the school where I currently work in Dumfries.

I have taught National 5 for the past two years and CfE Higher for the past year with all classes gaining excellent results. Included in my timetable this year are both these levels again.

In my own time I have tutored:
Standard Grade
Intermediate 2
and Higher

While at school I have tutored:
National 5
CfE Higher
and CfE Advanced Higher.

Tutoring Approach:

As a Teacher, I have built up a vast sum of useful resources including Success Guides, Past Papers, tests etc. I have also put a lot of work into making my own PowerPoints and can make anything else required to suit the individual that I am tutoring.
