Personal Description:
I graduated in 2011 with a degree in Classics at Cambridge University as a mature student. I am passionate about Latin and Greek and Ancient History. I have also attended a courses in New Testament Greek at the University of Cambridge's Institute of Continuing Learning.

I learned Latin and Greek at school up to O' Level but a few years ago I decided that I could no longer do without any Classics in my life and began to study at degree level, first with the Open University where I gained a Dip Class and subsequently at Cambridge University for a B.A and M.A.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous career one of my positions was as a Staff Training Officer with the Department of Employment where I trained adults in job related skills. Most recently I managed a counselling and advice centre in the voluntary sector where my counselling role involved working with young people.


I have current students studying Latin and Ancient Greek.



I ALSO OFFER PREPARATION FOR OXBRIDGE INTERVIEWS.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is student-centred, focusing on what the student's needs are whilst at the same time having a clear goal in mind. Latin and Greek inevitably involve learning grammar but I like to get students to read adapted texts as soon as possible so that there is a real sense of achievement.

If students are already learning Latin and Greek in another context my aim is to make sure that I support that learning. I aim to ensure that they have a good understanding of what they are learning at school (or elsewhere) by consolidating grammar and providing lots of practice which builds confidence.

Personal Description:
APPOINTMENT SLOTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE (as of March 2015):
Friday 7pm onwards and holiday times.

As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

Now, with over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of institutions - from Oxbridge entrance to comprehensives on 'Special Measures' - I am young enough to remember my struggles and old enough to know better.

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

This is my sixth year as a full-time tutor, but I was a secondary school teacher for 19 years before that.

I have experienced many types of academic performance from high-performing grammar schools to comprehensives on 'special measures'. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility within schools, particularly in the pastoral system such as Head of Year. I have been a grade-A examiner for AQA GCSE Geography.

During the last six years of 11 Plus entrance, including September 2014, 15 out of my 25 students have passed. I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, a 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts. Two out of three 12+ and 13+ tutees I have taught have passed their exams.

I have taught numerous syllabi: in the last six years I have tutored AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC at A level Geography. Indeed, I taught the whole of the A2 Edexcel Geogaphy syllabus online to one a tutee in Moscow: he has now gained a place at Aston University. I have mainly tutored the AQA and Edexcel syllabi for GCSE Maths. It would be fair to say that the overwhelming majority of my A level tutees experience significant gains and regularly obtain A or B grades.

At the moment (March 2015) I have 20 tutees in total: this includes 4 home-school tutees doing a variety of subjects such as GCSE Maths and Geography as well as Key Stage 3 Maths, English, History, Geography, Citizenship and RE; three GCSE English tutees; one Key Stage 3 Maths tutee; two Key Stage 3 English tutees; three 12 Plus tutees; five Key Stage 2 Maths tutees; two GCSE Maths tutee; one KS5 numeracy tutee, one A Level Geography tutee and, finally, three GCSE Geography tutees.

I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

Tutoring and learning should be natural and intuitive so that tutees can 'fly' by themselves.

To make the most of tuition, a tutee must be 'on-board'. If it's their idea - even better. A tutee that is in-charge of their own learning makes an excellent pupil.

As a tutor, I decide what is right for the tutee - not an institution. Parents often want someone who is familiar with the education system but independent enough to give an honest assessment. My main concern is the welfare of the tutee - not just their academic progress - nor the reputation of some teacher or institution. If something is not right for a tutee, no matter how forceful a parent might be or how much money I might lose, I simply will not do it. Each year there are a handful of tutees I turn away because of this.

In the first session I will try to identify what it is the tutee needs, and you may wish to quiz me in more detail. I will need access to school reports and examples of the tutee's work. Through discussion with my tutee and parental input it should become clear the reason for the tutoring.

From this 'snag' list, I will design a bespoke program to meet the educational needs of the tutee. It is flexible and, unlike a classroom situation, I can respond immediately to the needs of the tutee.

Homework will always be set, depending upon the demands placed upon the tutee by the normal school week. The tutee will be far more involved with learning than in a normal school class where they can 'hide', so prospective tutees need to expect plenty of chat and discussion, reviewing work and giving feedback.

For learning to be 'on the wing', to be natural and instinctive, tutees need to work hard without feeling the burden. This can only happen through enjoyment and a lot of laughter. That's my part: helping tutees to work really hard without realising it.

If at any point I feel unable to help, I won't just prolong tuition, or if our work has met its aims then I will call a halt. The point of tuition is not to need me anymore, so they can 'fly' all by themselves.

I offer two types of 'remote' tuition options at the moment:

i/ ONLINE FACE-TO-FACE TUITION: face-to-face on Skype is very good in dealing with syllabus issues and reinforcing and filling in the holes the class teachers leave behind. Face-to-face tuition lends itself well to visual resources such as diagrams, maps and pictures. It is primarily discussion-based and the tutee needs to take notes as we go along. I regularly send tutees files to prepare them for the lesson and to discuss in the lesson. If a tutee comes to face-to-face tuition and expects to be spoon-fed or entertained, it just won't work. Extra work can be set to test their written understanding. Usually, it is enough to go through topics the student struggles with. Once they 'click' with the topic/issue, we move onto other areas. Payment for this type of tuition is a flat fee each week to cover lesson preparation and the lesson itself. The marking of substantial pieces of work outside of lesson time such as essays will incur a modest marking fee.

ii/ CORRESPONDENCE-STYLE WITH UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT: work is set through powerpoints, pdf files and word documents for the student to do on their own in their own time. This should keep the tutee occupied for between 1-3 hours each week, unless more is required. It is then returned to me within the week. I mark it and provide feedback in the form of an audio file (up to 30 mins), talking them through the various issues. Any amounts of email conversations to help the student with this particular piece of work are allowed, after feedback has been given. This is very much an ongoing and open-ended commitment, once work has been set and feedback given, and the student is totally free to contact me with any issues. As a result, the payment structure is open-ended and depends on the amount of time used to prepare resources, mark and give audio feedback. This is added up at the end of each week, and the client is then billed. Follow-up emails and support are not timed but are considered as a 'free' part. Generally, this time will be from about 45-90 mins per week. I keep a track of the time minute to minute and endeavour to keep the time used as short as possible while setting about 1-3 hours of work. This is very much a trust system of working. I tailor the work individually to suit the student as opposed to an ordinary correspondence course that just covers syllabus content.

Please be aware that I do charge for travelling over 30 miles (roundtrip: 15 miles each way):
30-40 mile roundtrip - 5
41-50 mile roundtrip - 10
51-60 mile roundtrip - 15

Personal Description:
Hi! I am Ana, a 23 years old Spanish girl currently looking for job in London.

I have a degree in human nutrition and dietetics, the Proficiency English Cambridge certificates and an 120 hours advance TEFL certificate. This summer I attended a course in the renown University of Nebrija to form people to teach Spanish as a second language and it was fascinating.

Personal Description:
I studied Economics at Cambridge University and then went on to play rugby to an International level and also coach at the same level. I am now married with 2 children and love helping people achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught A-Level Economics for the last 2 years at a non-selective private school. Last year, 1/4 of my students achieved 100 UMS at A2 and 1/3 achieved an A*. One student had achieved a D at AS and finished with an A* with a UMS average of 95. Prior to this, I played and coached sport at an International Level so have a real understanding of learning and how to help people improve, often starting with behavioural change and combining this with activities to maximise the students' learning. I also tutored several students last year including a mature student, all achieved the grades they required.

Tutoring Approach:

I use nudges to change behaviours in my students on an individual basis. We need to get to the stage where the student is comfortable teaching the subject matter to me and the whole course is connected rather than studied in isolation. I am incredibly supportive and adaptable to the individual but I the sessions will always be a challenge.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor and current A level and GCSE teacher with over 22 years experience.
I have had a lot of success with my private tutoring, having helped many students achieve the grades they need to gain entry to the university courses of their choice - including medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry.
I have helped students in all the main exam boards including AQA, OCR and Edexcel

I have excellent communication skills and a very approachable manner which quickly puts students at ease.

I am married and have four children, three of which have passed through A levels so I know what it is like as a parent and teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a secondary and sixth form for 24 yrs and am currently a GCSE and A level Biology and Psychology teacher as well as a sixth form tutor.

I have been tutoring Biology and Psychology for over 20 yrs with great success with students from both the state and private sector. I have helped students from Collyer's; The Weald School; Steyning Grammer; Seaford College; Worth School; Farlington and Reigate Grammer to name a few.

My subject knowledge is very good being educated to BSc (Hons) in Biology and MSc in Psychology

I am very flexible and will either tutuor in my own home or am happy to travel to you.

Tutoring Approach:

My main focus has been tutoring and teaching A level Biology and more recently Psychology.and have been very successful in helping students of all abilities to improve their grades to allow them to make their next step in their education.

My strengths are that I have very good communication skills and put students at ease allowing for the greatest progress to be made.

I focus on two main areas. Firstly in breaking down theory areas to make it understandable. I get students to learn key words and use revision spider diagrams to see the overview of difficult topics so they don't get lost in the theory. Then I use these spider diagrams to help them select accurately the correct theory areas to answer exam based questions.

Secondly I focus on exam technique, deconstructing questions to focus on how to structure an answer and then to select the correct theory to use in the answer.

I can offer a selection of services.

A) simple tuition: focusing of understanding specific areas as the student needs

B). Tutoring programme: setting up and organising a tutoring programme for several lessons that will cover, systematically, a larger area of the subject.

C). Revision programme: creating a revision programme with the student and managing the students revision programme in the subject (s). This will take the student up to the exam.

I Include setting and marking exam based H/W's.

I also include revision material and workbooks as well as past paper packs with mark schemes.

I have been very successful with students from those wanting to take up Medicine, Veterinary or Dentistry courses, to those who just want a pass to everyone in between.

  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I grew up in North Wales until the age of 11, I then went to live in Tenerife, Spain and did all my studies up to University there and am proficient in both English and Spanish.

I have taught English as a second language in Tenerife, Spain from 2006 to 2014, to learners of all ages, from one to one lessons to small groups, as a self-employed tutor.

I have also done after-school English classes at a local Spanish school, worked in various nurseries teaching infants from 2 years of age and have been in charge of an English summer camp where children learn through crafts, sport and activities.

I started teaching because of the high demand from people needing native speaking English tutors in the Spanish city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and have taught myself grammar and different teaching methods, improving with experience.

Teaching Experience:

In April 2016 I obtained a 140-hour premier TEFL course certificate and I'm currently doing a Degree in English Studies at a Spanish University to become an English-Spanish linguist. In June 2016 I got the Distinction in the Intermediate Level Certificate in Welsh.

I have experience teaching conversation, grammar, vocabulary. Improving fluency for interviews and travelling abroad. Preparation of Cambridge and language school exams, and reinforcement of schoolwork.

In 2014 I moved back to North Wales to be near my family, I have been learning Welsh at Bangor University and I'm continuing my career by teaching Spanish locally in small groups and one to one lessons, and also teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) online.

Tutoring Approach:

I give a variety of interactive lessons where you can put into practice all of the language skills necessary to become fluent and have an active Spanish & ESOL learning experience.

Personal Description:
I am a medical student in the middle of my course, looking to help children up to and including GCSE with their core subjects which I also studied to A-level. As part of my course, I spend time interacting with children of all ages and have a very lively personality. Not only will I enthusiastically tutor your child I will consistently motivate them to do the best they can.

Teaching Experience:

I help students in younger years of my course at university with revision for their final year examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

As I have been through the UK schooling system to get into my course I am aware of multiple methods of learning and revising. I also will be able to explain concepts to your child based on the various ways I was taught in school and can adapt my teaching style to the student.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Jay.

I'm 24. Earlier this year I returned from a year teaching in Japan, I am originally from Bedford.

I am currently studying for a masters of research in 'Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine' at the University of Southampton.

I also hold an undergraduate degree in 'Human Physiology' from the University of Liverpool.

I have been invested in the scientific field since I was very young and I have found that my passion for the field comes across in my tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of tutoring was a 6-month period volunteering in a middle school in Bedford town (2014)

I then moved to Japan to teach English as a second language in Mimasaka city where I learnt a great deal about teaching in classes of 3 to 43 students.

Upon returning to England earlier this year, I was employed as a student support in a college in Bedford working with disadvantaged and disabled students both 1 on 1 and in small groups.

Before beginning University, I was a team leader with the National Citizenship Service where I helped a group of 15 students complete a dynamic course including everything from adventure activities to carrying out a fundraising project for charity.

I will soon begin volunteering with a mentoring/tutoring charity in Southampton for disadvantaged students.

I have a wide range of experiences working with students from different backgrounds inside and out of the education system. I have attained high qualifications in every subject I tutor and I believe I can both discuss and demonstrate the merits of hard work and education with students who require motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

After much experience in various areas of the education sector, I strongly believe that learning through discussion and questioning is the most effective way to understand the fundamentals of science and improve in this field. Developing a deep interest in science this way can greatly improve a student's confidence and understanding. I can also provide help in exam theory to ensure students won't lose marks through misunderstandings in what is required when answering modern day exam questions.

However, I understand that every student has their own needs and I will strive to tailor each session to the individual.
