Personal Description:
For the last few years I have been supply teaching. In the main- short term contracts, usually to cover maternity leave or sickness etc. Before that I taught English as a foreign language in Barcelona. I have a TEFL certificate. I have recently returned from two terms teaching Physics to A level at the British School Tennerife. This was a maternity cover and included setting up the practical exam for the students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science in secondary comprehensive state schools for over 20 years. Ages range from 11 to 18 mixed ability, teaching physics to A level. I am an assistant examiner working for Cambridge International and marking A level physics papers. Also moderating Physics A level coursework for Edexcel.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutored for friends in the past. I am currently a serving teacher who marks exam papers and is therefore aware of the requirements demanded in exams. I teach the latest syllabus for the various key stages. I am very tolerant and patient with my students.

Personal Description:
My name is Safowan and I'm currently working as a software tester. Having graduated with a 2.1 honours in Mathematics I want to inspire young learners to achieve and fulfil their aims and ambitions during evenings and weekends. Tutoring has always been rewarding for me and it gives me great pleasure to share my knowledge to benefit others.

Teaching Experience:

My experience in teaching ranges from a placement in a secondary school as part of the student associates scheme (SAS) to private tutoring.

During my time at Royal Docks Community School as a Teaching Assistant, I worked closely with senior teachers in the Mathematics department. My daily responsibilities included; assisting pupils with their learning by working with small groups and on a one to one basis, assisting teachers with any administration tasks, occasionally working with SEN students, helping to ensure pupil disruption is kept to a minimum, having performance reviews from head of department, and ensuring school's policies and procedures are maintained at all times.

I also have three years experience in tutoring a range of students, from ks2 through to gcse. This enabled me to gain experience of lesson planning, marking, exam preparation and identifying weaknesses and addressing them according to the student's ability. Therefore, time management played an important role as I had to prepare for each lesson, taking into consideration any changes that might occur in the lesson, and ensure the student learns a topic with enough practice questions under timed lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching would be to tutor my subject in a fun and friendly environment. Mathematics can be a difficult subject to grasp but can be understood better and enjoyable to learn if taught in a more positive and proactive manner. I prefer to explain the very basics of each topic at first before engaging with the student to try out the practice questions. As the student grows in more confidence, they will learn some exam strategies and techniques to overcome exam pressures.

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.

2012-2013:
- French teacher for Reception (Fundation), Kingslea Primary School, Horsham (Volunteering)
- Private tuition with a 4 years' boy.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that having a native teacher is a huge advantage for students of the French language wanting to perfect their pronunciation, improve fluency and knowledge of both proper and currently spoken French.

My tuition is tailor-made and flexible, according to each pupil's needs and requirements.
I ask the pupil to do homework, as there is no learning without personal work.
Depending on the level, I prefer to follow a book, for example Façon de parler 1 for absolute beginners. I of course add exercises, explanations, texts and resources to the book.


Please feel free to contact me for any enquiry: I am available for weekly lessons or for a one-off session!
Feel free also to be joined by a friend or two and share the cost!

Alors, à bientôt j'espère !

Personal Description:
I am a French & British dual national. I grew up in France attending French schools throughout my lower education, but moved to the UK in 2010 to study Architecture at the University of Bath. I've always had a passion for languages, which led me to undertake further studies in German and Spanish, as well as to live in Germany for some time whilst still at school. !

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring struggling students whilst still in Lycée, towards Maths, Physics, English or German Brevet (GCSE equivalent) or Baccalauréat. I've always found tutoring extremely rewarding and enjoyable, from both an academic and relational point of view, and have therefore committed more time to it particularly over the last year. I teach French and German primarily, and have taught a wide variety of students, from primary school-aged children to beginner adults, and helped students taking their GCSEs and A-levels.

Tutoring Approach:

This really depends on what you want to get out of the lessons! There is no single approach which will work with everybody so I am committed to finding out what works best for you! However we choose to go forward, I will always aim to make it fun and enjoyable, and make sure there is progress every session.

Unfortunately I am currently unable to arrange new lessons before 7.15pm on a weekday evening, except on Wednesdays.

Personal Description:
I am an Oxford graduate and current law student who is passionate about helping students of all ages master their studies and gain the confidence to succeed.

My background is a bit untraditional (I've done two BAs- one in the US and one in the UK), but between my two undergraduate degrees, I have been lucky enough to get the depth and focus of a British BA as well as the flexibility of an American BA. As a result of my background, I have a strong understanding of many subjects and the ability to adapt my thinking and teaching to different disciplines from the creative to the analytical.

I have a 2.i from my BA in Philosophy and Theology from Oxford, a First from my BA in Humanities with Pre-Med courses (Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Calculus) at Providence College in the United States, and an IB Diploma. I completed my Graduate Diploma in Law last year and am currently in my final year of legal studies at BPP University.

In my spare time, I like to work on crossword puzzles (I even competed in a tournament last year) and a few other somewhat nerdy indulgences like board games, video games and, of course, Star Wars. I always make time for learning something new where I can, and, having recently worked out the ukulele, I am currently working (slowly) on picking up Japanese.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring different ages of students in various disciplines, from helping undergraduates improve their essay-writing skills and preparing Oxbridge applicants for interview to assisting primary-school and SEN students with reading, writing and maths. I love helping students build confidence and master topics they once thought too challenging.

One of my favourite subjects to tutor is English and writing. During my first BA, I worked as a writing tutor at my university's tutoring centre, where I helped students analyse literature, brainstorm essay topics, construct thesis statements and outlines, and revise essay drafts for clarity and grammar. Over the past year, I've helped not only GCSE and A-level students but also primary-school SEN students improve their writing skills and confidence.

I am also very excited to tutor in Philosophy. Last year, I had the great pleasure of preparing one of my tutees for a Philosophy interview at Cambridge by discussing various topics and texts and working on essays together each week. We both enjoyed our sessions together greatly, and I was absolutely delighted when she was offered a place.

Finally, I have also worked as a teaching and lab assistant for my university's chemistry department and so am used to adapting my instruction for students with different aptitudes, interests and skillets. As a chemistry lab assistant, I worked alongside a lecturer to help university chemistry students in group hands-on chemistry lab lectures improve their lab techniques and see how each experiment fit in with the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the best way to learn something challenging is to let students work through the problem at their own pace until they can see the solution for themselves and build the skills they'll need to succeed in the future on their own, so it's very important for me when I tutor to make sure that the student is in the driver's seat. I like to let the tutee's needs guide each session, so I begin each tutorial by asking the student what he or she wants to focus on and what he or she is struggling with. Whether it's reading through an essay or working through a maths problem, I like to help students break down a complicated problem and let them guide me through their thought processes, correcting and instructing where necessary and encouraging the student during their successes. Of course, there will always be complicated topics that require a more didactic style of tutoring, but I think the Socratic method is much more effective not only for ensuring students truly understand the material, but also for empowering them and giving them confidence in their work.

I believe an important goal for a tutor should be to help her tutee gain confidence, as many students only seek tutoring after having struggled to grasp a concept fully on their own and thus often tend to underestimate their ability in the subject. This is especially true for SEN students, who have often been misunderstood by their teachers and peers. A tutor shouldn't be just an instructor- she should be a coach and cheerleader, too! I honestly believe there is nothing more rewarding than watching my tutees grow in knowledge and confidence over the course of our sessions together.

I also believe that, where possible, it's important to add a dash of something interesting to tutorials, especially with younger students. I've found that when a tutee is losing interest or struggling to engage with the material (often because they're having trouble understanding it), finding new ways to approach the problem, either through games, real-life application or creative thought experiments, can help a student get reacquainted with a subject they might have dismissed as uninteresting.

I attended high school in French, college in English, and graduated from university with a bilingual degree. I recently graduated from HEC Montreal with a Bachelor Degree in business administration specialised in market finance. I moved to London in September 2014 and currently work at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the Wimbledon Championships. I have a keen interest for sports, music and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I had the opportunity to be a French tutor during 2 years at John Abbott College back in Canada. I worked mostly with English speakers, but also with German and Spanish speakers. I also gained experience during my last year in high school tutoring different subjects including French, English and Mathematics. Most recently, I was a mentor for a student with learning difficulty. I helped her with different academic subjects as well as taking her to educational activities to stimulate her interests.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the best approach to tutoring is to truly personalize the learning, considering the tutee's needs while incorporating connections to their interests. I am a patient and flexible tutor, I am willing to adjust teaching techniques in order to provide better help. I think it's important to focus on goal setting and to create benchmarks in order to set students up for academic progress.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Mathematics Undergraduate at Balliol College, Oxford University.In school I was very keen on extracurricular maths- I achieved a distinction in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round 1. I obviously have experience with the Oxford Mathematics Admissions Test. I am also very happy to teach the IB syllabus. I stay in Oxford throughout the year and am especially available during the summer for those who want to prepare for their November MAT and December Interviews. Otherwise happy to Skype or do online lessons via Tutorhunt .

Extracurricular Interests
Watching and Playing Football, Videogames

Teaching Experience:

I have had experience tutoring GCSE maths and A Level Maths and Further for the last summer in London. I also tutored KS3 students whilst in my sixth form.
I will be most keen to apply as a tutor the learning and teaching techniques that I have found to be effective whilst as a student.

Online Experience:
-Tutored a International Chinese Student applying for maths at Oxford during summer of 2015 via "Teamviewer"(student received offer to read maths at University of Oxford)
-I have had much experience learning online as a student- mostly when I was applying to university myself. I often watched videos such as Khan Academy so I know what a great online learning experience feels like. Even now while at university I regularly use things like MIT opencourseware for video lectures and the slightly more interactive format too to supplement my live classes, tutorials and lectures.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly and very encouraging. I have had experience giving remedial lessons to younger students falling a little behind at school and also to stronger students so can adapt approach well. One challenge is students who doubt their abilities or are afraid to get a question wrong. I constantly encourage that mistakes are okay, and they shouldn`t be afraid to tackle a difficult problem. I often find that it takes a lot of experimenting with stupid, less fruitful ideas in order to reach a brilliant one. Prompt when stuck and hold belief that it is the journey to solving the problem that is most important than the final answer and most fun of course :) Despite being guilty of not doing this many times in my young mathematical career- It is important to realise that Mathematics is not a spectator sport- much of learning comes from actively solving many problems and having bravery to explore the subject alone sometimes.
