Personal Description:
Before coming into teaching, I worked in the Music Industry as a professional session singer. The work was varied and diverse. I sang with many named artistes and toured on an international level. I also have extensive experience in the recording studio. In 2005, I deceided to 'change direction' and studied Performance Arts, gaining a BA Hons Degree in the subject in 2008.
I studied Shakespeare, Stanislavski and many other drama practioners and methods.
I feel that because of my life experience, I bring a very friendly approach to my teaching. Also, being a 'mature student' myself has added to my understanding of needing alittle 'help' at times.
My approach is a mixture of theory and practical. I like to make sure that my student understands where he/she is approaching the given subject - be it an acting method or a scripted reading.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating with honours, I went on to gain a Post Grad teaching degree (PGCE). I have been teaching singing privately for the past eight years and started teaching drama and performing arts since 2006. Whilst doing my PGCE, I was employed as a part-time lecturer for performance arts at Salford University teaching 2nd year degree students.
I teach at a private performing academy with children whose ages range from 6 to 18 years old and at another private acting academy that is attached to ITV studios in Leeds.
Because of all my experience, I am able to cover three subjects to any level - drama, singing and Musical Theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

On our first meeting, I like to find out just where the student is at in their given subject; what their past experiences are and what their expectations are of having extra tuition. An understanding of their strengths and weaknesses is also important to find out at an early stage so that together, we can plan a way forward.
I am a friendly, patient and easy-going person with a very good sense of humour but I take my teaching very seriously and remain quite passionate about drama and performing arts on the whole.
I always like to make sure that the student leaves my class with full understanding of the work we have done and will ensure that any questions or concerns are addressed before the end of the lesson.

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old female graduate from the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow. I have a joint Honours degree in French and Italian (language and studies) for which I gained a 2:1. I also have a Masters in Marketing which I also obtained from the University of Strathclyde. I am currently working as the Marketing Co-ordinator for a Plant & Tool Hire company based in Glasgow, where I am responsible for the Marketing for the whole business, including Head Office and our 59 depots throughout the UK. I spent a year abroad in Lyon, France, during my fourth year of university, where I worked as an English Language Assistant in two high schools. I am extremely patient and understanding and have a lot of experience tutoring both young children and teenagers, especially in French and Italian. I am passionate about working with and helping others and find it to be a most rewarding experience and I would love to pass on my knowledge and skills, in my specialist subjects, in order to help develop the skills of the tutees I will be working with. I am a very driven, confident and enthusiastic individual and I give 100% to everything I am involved with and I am passionate about achieving results and helping others to do so also.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently undertaking the PGDE in Education to teach French & Italian in secondary schools and have acquired a great amount of experience throughout my school placements and have gained great confidence in teaching the new National 4 and 5 qualifications. During my fourth year of University, I worked in two high schools in Lyon, France as an English language assistant, teaching children, teenagers and young adults, from the age of nine to twenty three. I was responsible for helping them with all aspects of the language, and developing their reading, writing, listening and verbal skills by preparing and working on a number of different activities. I also taught them about British culture, history and lifestyles so as to help develop their knowledge of Britain, particularly Scotland, in general. I ensured that I worked differently with different individuals, depending on their style of learning and I took a different approach accordingly. I aimed to make my style of teaching both informative and fun so that they enjoyed learning and I believe this is something I am always successful in as many tutees I have worked with have commented on my positive and helpful way of teaching.

In my final year of high school I was involved in the 'Peer Education' programme whereby I went into five different French and Italian classes and helped those who were experiencing difficulties with the subjects. I helped particularly with grammar issues as these seemed to pose the most problems for pupils and I also helped them prepare for upcoming speaking and writing tests. I also helped pupils to understand easier ways of making the most of their French or Italian dictionary and taught them creative and simple of ways of tackling listening and reading tests. Moreover, I worked on a one to one basis with a Higher grade pupil who was experiencing problems with French and we explored different ways of making difficult areas that much easier. I was also part of the 'Paired Reading' programme where I worked with pupils aged eleven to fifteen who experienced reading difficulties. I met with three pupils for one hour each week, on an individual basis, and we would work on techniques for improving their reading ability and they would read to me. These two programmes were very gratifying, especially when I witnessed a pupil's confidence grow as their reading skills improved.

I have also tutored two family friends, both in French and Italian, with a great focus on exam preparation and the skills that they needed to do well on class tests. I also help my niece and nephew with their French, focusing greatly on the areas they find the most difficult.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a different approach to my tutoring depending on the individual I am working with. On my first session with my tutee I will find out the areas that they are experiencing the most difficulty in, and what their strengths and weaknesses are, as this will help me to develop an effective and helpful way of teaching. I prepare various worksheets, practice tests and activities which are interactive and will allow for valuable learning. I will ask the tutee what their preferred way of learning is and look at ways in which they successfully learn in other subjects and try to incorporate this in to my way of teaching. I encourage tutees to ask questions wherever necessary and to state if they wish me to try a different approach. I believe communication is the key to successful learning and I pride myself on my friendly and approachable nature and my ability to achieve results in my tuition. On the whole, I am aware that my way of teaching has to be of benefit to the tutee so I will tailor my approach to suit their wants and needs.

Personal Description:
Apart from studying and working - I try and fill my life with as much as possible!

I'm best known for writing comics - a 'Factzine' that is an illustrated book of facts, some of which may or not be interesting, and which may or not be true.

I also write a autobiographical comic called '2012' which is about working in a call centre.

My long term writing project is a children's book that I'm writing and illustrating, which is based on me using my gap year to travel the world and discover new species of animals (rather than working a shoe shop, which sadly is closer to reality!).

I also write and perform songs, do a series of short presentations about Cher and Dot Cotton, and have been employed in the past as a face painter, compere, and public speaker on Whales and other marine life.

I've been lucky enough through my life to be inspired by state education because of fantastic teachers - and the least one should offer in private tuition is that same thirst for learning that was inspired of me throughout my formulative years.

Teaching Experience:

Apart from my recent experience teaching Philosophy and Politics A level around London, I have experience working with children of all age groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I would say that my creativity, enthusiasm and easy going nature is what makes me a good tutor. For younger students, I come from a Playwork school of thinking; and for older students, pupil driven learning - I think that the best way to learn anything is to accept that some bits are necessary and boring, but the rest can be made interesting and fun in a way that's shaped to the pupil.

This can be anything from teaching Plato's Allegory of the Cave through excerpts from the Matrix; to drawing comics to understand the Cromwell era of British History.

Personal Description:
I am a 27 year old Mathematics Teacher who has had excellent teaching experience. I am a graduate from the Univeristy of Warwick and I have completed an MA in Education

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Mathematics Teacher for four years with students ages 11-18. I have taught GCSE Mathematics and A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to be flexible in my tutoring approach, I am enthusiastic about encouraging students to excel in mathematics in areas they enjoy and areas which may be proving tricky at the time. Neither area should be neglected and this is a challenge I would accept alongside my tutee.
The starting point would be taking in both positive comments and concerns, from which to decide on a plan of action with my tutee based on period of time allocated.
I would draw on the wide range of resources I have available based on the needs of the tutee.

Personal Description:
In 2007 I graduated from University of Technology with a Masters Degree in Applied Mathematics. During the five years of study at the University, I was achieving great results. I was awarded with numerous scholarships, including a foreign scholarship at the University of Zilina in Slovakia. Studying abroad gave me an opportunity to attend private lectures by one of the most famous mathematicians of our times, Professor Josef's Diblik. Eight months spent in Slovakia including an intense course in the Slovak language organized by the local University gave me currently, an ability to communicate in this language. Additionally I am fluent in written and verbal English, Russian and Polish. During study at the University I have done 2 years teacher training which gave me a qualification to work as a teacher of Mathematics (in all types of schools). This is proved in England by getting Qualified Teaching Status (Teacher Reference Number 1130844 - possible employment in maintained schools and non-maintained schools in England).

Teaching Experience:

Since September 2010 I have worked at Charter Academy in Portsmouth. This job allows me to fulfill myself by helping children. I am really keen to work with all pupils, especially those from foreign countries. I fully understand their tough position, as English is not their native language. I have a great rapport with children thanks to the fact that I am patient and know how to explain Maths in a clear way. I always strive to provide individualized support for pupils that are struggling with learning concepts and mathematical topics.

Tutoring Approach:

Experienced and extremely well qualified Maths teacher offers private one to one tutoring lessons for students in Maths. I always try to make my lessons interesting. I have a great rapport with children thanks to the fact that I am patient and know how to explain Maths in a clear way. I create warm and helping environment for pupils, try to interest children with different fun Maths applications and do my best to raise their confidence and understanding of mathematics.

Personal Description:
Since graduating from uni, I have been working as a freelance writer. Most of my work has been for a cruise ship website which is due to launch next year. For the website I have written a wealth of information about cruise lines, cruise ships and the destinations they visit. I have also done a bit of article writing for a few other websites.

My ultimate ambition is to be a novelist, though this requires a lot of time and a lot of luck! Until the novel writing kicks off, I hope to continue being a freelance writer.

I never really thought of being a tutor, but it struck me that I'm not actually doing anything with my degree, so it's about time I should! Plus, it would get me out of the house, which is always a bonus.

Teaching Experience:

I haven't any teaching experience as of yet, however everyone has to start somewhere! I am fully confident that I have all the necessary skills, and the educational experience, to be a tutor, I just haven't had the opportunity to show them yet! I am keen to get started and gain some experience as a tutor so please do take a chance on me and we can learn together.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach would be informal and friendly. I would work together with the tutee to identify key areas s/he is struggling in and overcome those areas through the use of exercises and creative, engaging activities. I would be organised and methodical, yet relaxed and flexible as per the needs of the tutee.

Personal Description:
My name is Adam and I am 22 and a third year student at the University of Edinburgh, studying for a MA in History. I have studied a variety of topics particularly the past two centuries of British, Russian and American history, but I have also studied Roman, Chinese, and African histories as well as the histories of medicine and science. I am, however, knowledgeable about many other areas of history and able to teach the skills required to study any period.

I achieved an A* and full marks in my final exam of my History A-Level as well as As in Economics and Maths and 10 GCSEs A*-A. I thoroughly enjoy the act of teaching and love to pass on my knowledge to students and see them develop and flourish. Outside of academic studies I am a keen sportsman, playing football, rugby and cricket on a weekly basis.

Teaching Experience:

After achieving my A-levels and leaving school, I returned the following year to help A-level students with their exam preparation and their long essay projects. I spent a week working with students on a one on one basis to give them guidance and practical advice for their studies.

I privately tutored a student from my old secondary school and developed my own skills of working with students as well as providing him the relevant skill-set to succeed in the discipline and he subsequently achieved a high grade in his History A-Level.

At university I have made class presentations detailing key periods in history in which I have specialised and have passed on to classmates the knowledge which I have learned. I have also helped peer review essays and helped several classmates with essay structure and writing skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student has an individual style of learning and as such need to be tutored in a unique way which keeps them interested in the subject and stretches them to reach their potential. I am very enthusiastic about the subject and believe that students learn best when they too are able to connect with the subject they are looking at.

I believe that one of the most important skills to learn as a student of history is to be able to write confidently and coherently. Once this skill is acquired, students will be able to rapidly advance to learn the essential skill of critical analysis of the evidence put before them.
