Personal Description:
I want to do research in sub-field of Quantum mechanics and am keen to go in research to a further level in String Theory. I have a lucid way of explaining the subject.
I am always being updated and upgraded to the knowledge of physics. It's my hobby, rather than an interest, to teach the Physics to A level and UG students.

Teaching Experience:

Currently I am A-Level Lecturer for Physics and Maths in Capital City academy.
Working as Physics & Maths Tutor
I have worked for four years as Physics teacher in school.
I have worked with three institutions as a Physics lecturer.
I worked as Physics Lab Co-ordinator.
I am supporting as STEM ambassadoring.

Personal Description:
I am a retired scientist. I worked as a senior scientist for a major pharmaceutical company for more than 30 years. I hold a first class hons degree in chemistry, a degree in maths and a post graduate degree in organic chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully tutored students at GCSE and AS/A levels for many years. Currently I am coaching AS/A level students from AQA,OCR A / Salters, EDEXEL and IB boards.

Most of my students improve their grades at least by two levels.

Messages from past students:

15th June 2014:

It has been a pleasure to meet John, I was apprehensive about using a tutor from a website, but luckily for my daughter and I, when asking around both at the school and elsewhere no one knew of anyone they could recommend.

My daughters confidence in chemistry, and her faith in getting the grade she needed to achieve her aim, in doing bio chemistry at university, came on in leaps and bounds.

I would be only too happy to recommend John as a tutor, as he follows up on his pupils, rings them in his own time to check how they did in their tests and exams, his pupils and their results are his top priority.

Thank you so much John, carry on the good work, I know you will.

Valerie, Stevenage.

John has been my daughter's Chemistry tutor for the last 6 months. We have found him to be very knowledgeable and helped her to understand concepts better. He also is very good in explaining difficult topics and also navigating through revision papers and explaining what needs to be done to improve grades. He is very patient and kind which sets him apart. My daughter is an AS student and this has reflected in her grades and confidence. He is an outstanding teacher and I have no hesitation recommending him.

Comments: John has been great for the few weeks he has been helping me out, his knowledge of all the main syllabuses is extremely detailed, which comes into play very well when linking knowledge between each of the modules, perfect for the exam questions posed on A level Chemistry. Very professional and approachable, John insists you make use of his guidance and knowledge whenever need be and that he is always available to assist you in your studies. I feel extremely confident thus far that I can achieve the grade I need with John's help.

Comments: The A level chemistry tuition that John has given our son Josh over the last 8 weeks has been invaluable; Josh has grown in confidence, is now starting to enjoy this challenging subject and is making much better progress at school. Thanks John for all of your help.

Mary, Rushden, Herts.

16th August 2013:

Hope you and your family are well and you are all enjoying India! We had a wonderful time in India and returned on Saturday night. I tried to call you yesterday and my mum reminded me that you must still be in India.

I achieved A*AA! I got the A overall in Chemistry that I wanted. I am now accepted into St George's University of London and will be started from 23rd September.

A HUGE thank you for all your help over the past year in guiding me with my Chemistry A Level and I hope to see you on your return from India.

Many thanks,

Vishnavi, Letchworth, Herts

John has helped my son with Chemistry A level since October last year in order to get his Grade from a C to a B. Since working with John, my son's grades have improved tremendously - even to a Grade A in one of his exams this January. John tailors his tutorials exactly to the needs of the student, taking time to ensure that each area is fully understood. My son's teachers noticed a difference in my son's classwork within weeks of seeing John, commenting that his confidence and understanding had improved even at that early stage. I have no hesitation recommending this tutor, and hope to continuing working with him leading up to this Summer.

John has been helping my son with his A levels in chemistry and since then my son's confidence has grown and we have better hopes of my son achieving an A or B grade in chemistry. John works well with my son when teaching and he takes time to explain difficult tasks . i am pleased with John's teaching skills so far and i would gladly recommend him to any one looking for a chemistry tutor and i think his price is fare too.

Tayo, Stevenage.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to work on areas where the students need specific attention rather than systematically going through the whole syllabus. I encourage students to work out past papers giving special attention to appropriate mark schemes. So it is very much hands-on, ensuring that the students have fully understood the fundamentals so that they have full confidence in handling the questions.

Personal Description:
I have degrees in three academic disciplines, and am a qualified teacher with 30 years of experience of teaching and tutoring at primary, secondary, university and adult levels. I have worked in state education and private tuition and am currently employed as a specialist mentor and study coach with university students. For 17 years I also led small organisations in the voluntary sector, which involved teaching and training individuals, small groups and groups of up to 300.
I have some postgraduate training in psychotherapy and counselling psychology.

Personal Description:
I am French but have lived in Britain for years (both my children, who are in their 20's, were born here). I have also lived and worked in Spain and am fluent in the language. I then taught adults in a language school (Inlingua) in Germany, Italy and London. I came back to this country and got a job in a private school where I was the teacher in charge of Spanish. After working in this school for 21 years, I have just retired but miss the excitement of teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught languages all my life, first in a Welsh comprehensive school (for 8 years), then abroad. In Spain, I taught French and English in a primary school and I then taught adults French, Spanish and English as a foreign language for Inlingua. When I returned to Britain, I taught French and Spanish to GCSE and A level in a private school. I have just retired after 21 years there and I now help a private Open University student. I enjoy teaching and would like to do more tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

As I have a wide experience of teaching languages, I am able to use different kinds of approach to language learning and can apply the best suited one for each student. I enjoy teaching linguistially minded student as well as those who find it a challenge to learn a foreign language. Through working for a long time in the Bristish educational system, I am aware of the requirements of different GCSE and A levels examination boards. From the student's point of view, I think that learning a foreign language should be fun but also challenging and rewarding.

Personal Description:
I am very passionate about films, theatre, the media industry. I am currently in my second year of a BA Hons in Film Studies at Edge Hill University, living away from home during the week but always available on weekends. I am hardworking, dedicated to my studies and after my undergraduate degree I am hoping to continue my studies with a Masters degree.

I also love to learn languages, currently able to speak 4 fluently (English, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi) and also learning Spanish in my free time.

Teaching Experience:

I have a younger sister who is following my path into Film Studies, not knowing a thing before starting her A Level in it she is now predicted an A*. I have held short after school lessons for her and other family members in this particular field and the outcome has always been satisfying.

I have also started my TEFL course (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) which helps me gain a qualification in teaching the English language.

Tutoring Approach:

The lessons will be about the student, and not the teacher. Therefore everything will be tailored to areas you wish to improve (spoken communication, written skills, reading, accent, listening)

I have a calm and relaxed approach to tutoring, understanding the problems and weaknesses in people and using those to bring out the best in them. If I can see passion within the student then I will do my personal best to bring out the potential in my students.

Personal Description:
I am working as a Research Associate at Imperial College London. I received my PhD in Control Theory from City, University of London in October 2016. I graduated in Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering and I hold a Master Degree in Telecommunications and Networks. Also, I have Teaching Certificate in Academic Practice awarded by Higher Education Academy.

Being at University raises my awareness of stress that students might feel if not doing well in mathematics. Therefore, teaching gives me a great deal of satisfaction to help students to improve their maths knowledge and progress further.

I teach on a wide range of university modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. These include: Engineering Mathematics, Mathematics and Computation, Programming and Design (C, Python), Digital Logic, Digital Signal Processing and Linear & Non-Linear Systems. Since this academic year I am a Widening Participation Tutor working with pupils from as young as Year 5 all the way to Year 13 at schools and colleges around London.

Tutoring Approach:

I always work at a pace that suits each individual student, making the subjects interesting, fun and accessible for students so they will learn more easily and remember more. My lessons are well detailed and prepared to give the student with as much knowledge as possible. I encourage them to practice more and advise them on exam technique and how to achieve better grades.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Sophie. I am a 2nd year student of Biochemistry at Edinburgh University, having just finished my gap year working at IBM. I love to spend my spare time either on the hockey pitch, in the kitchen or doing some art.

Teaching Experience:

Student science tutor for 2 years whilst at school
Summer Camp Leader for 3 years running, experience with international children.
Leader at Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows
Work experience at an Adult Learning Centre

Tutoring Approach:

It has been my experience, both as a tutor and as a student, that the best way to engage with learning is to understand your working style. I personally have found certain aspects of school quite challenging but by finding the methods that most suited my needs, I was able to maximize my learning potential.

My tutoring style emphasizes collaboration and positive reinforcement in order to produce a friendly learning environment.

From my charity work abroad in Ghana to my role as Deputy Head Girl at my secondary school, I have gained the interpersonal skills necessary to develop productive and compassionate relationships with pupils. Students will find themselves excited for their lessons and eager to achieve new standards of excellence.

Personal Description:
Hi I'm Gareth! I am motivated and love my job! I teach Primary School children everyday and with that comes challenges and the opportunity to get to know children and their interests. I think it's important for children to get to know me and my interests as I like to create a relaxed and approachable ethos. I play rugby and love watching local and national clubs playing. I am very competitive and enjoy a good game of articulate! I have had the privilege to work with children in Brazil and learned how children learn from different teaching styles especially those with English as an additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching key stage 2 since September 2017. I graduated from Northumbria University in June 2016. Prior to undertaking my PGCE in primary education was working as teaching assistant in a special needs school and a British College primary school in Brazil.
I have tutored children for their AQE exams in the past year and each child has achieved their personal targets. I have seen children grown in confidence and their understanding of the subject deepen which is why I am passionate about my job.

Tutoring Approach:

With encouragement and motivated lessons, every child can achieve their full potential. My aim is to find the areas of misunderstanding in various subject areas and to build a firm foundation of knowledge and understanding. I ensure that the child can access the learning by providing a range of strategies and learning techniques to overcome any challenges.

I am passionate about history, languages, and arts. At school I studied Welsh, French and German and I have been learning Mandarin since 2010. I understand what it is like to study another language!

I have just moved to Leeds from Taiwan (May 2017) where I was a TEFL teacher and private English tutor.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching background spans 13 years. As a teaching assistant in mainstream schools (London and Bristol) I taught students with specific educational needs, such as ESL or dyslexia.
I have taught in residential schools for students with complex difficulties, including severe autism or Down's Syndrome.
I have mentored students with poor literacy skills and a background of truancy in order to build their confidence and motivate them to enjoy learning.

As a TEFL teacher I have taught English to children (3-18 years) and adults in India, China and Taiwan. I have taught one-to-one classes, and classes with between 2-25 students.
In Taiwan and China I privately tutored preparatory skills for IELTS (an international English proficiency test), business English and academic writing skills (e.g. dissertation and thesis writing). I coached one undergraduate preparing to study an MA in English Literature in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

As a child my family moved a lot and I went to many types of schools: state, private, bilingual, Steiner, Montessori, single sex and co-educational, so I am familiar with different teaching styles.

I work hard to enable my students to reach their learning goals and feel motivated to continue learning. I quickly find out each individual's learning needs, likes and dislikes so they will feel comfortable in our lessons and inspired to progress.

I am very flexible and willing to tailor our lessons to my students' preferred learning methods: I am able to adjust the structure, level and content of our lessons.

I inspire my students to believe in themselves and push themselves forward whatever their pace.
