Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic mathematician with an ability to communicate well. I have a first class degree in Maths and Chemistry. I would like to help students by either guiding and supporting them in their exam preparation or by developing their confidence and increasing their skillbase in maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a large comprehensive school in Leeds teaching 11-18yrs for the past seven years. I have experience of taking students through SATs, GCSEs, and A-Levels both in school and in private tuition with excellent results. In addition to this, I am an examiner for AQA and Edexcel exam boards, marking Alevel papers. As such, I am very well qualified to help students develop a more effective exam technique that maximises their marks.

Tutoring Approach:

I give one hour or two hour lessons which can either be in support of, and running along side, the student's school work or individually tailored lessons covering specific areas of weakness which students find particularly helpful in preparation for exams.

Personal Description:
I am a university graduate with a BSc honours degree in biology and a Masters degree in biomedical science, with specialism in medical microbiology. I have a passion for teaching and wish to encourage students to go into science disciplines and further education. I believe that being a teacher is a highly rewarding job. I have recently worked for the Manchester Metropolitan University where I completed some research for their Centre of Learning & Teaching where I was able to learn more about the different styles of teaching. I am currently working on behalf of a local secondary school as their private science tutor.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past two years I have gained experience from teaching a range of students biology and chemistry. The students had different abilities in the sciences and thus my methods of teaching were adapted to the student's needs. I am currently tutoring at a local school where some students need extra one-to-one help with science.

Tutoring Approach:

My work with art and science has encouraged me to use artistic examples to teach science, particularly biology. I believe that drawings and pictures are key to biology and chemistry and visualising information makes it that much easier to learn. Thus when I teach I prefer to engage the student in different ways and not by simply reading out a piece of information. I additionally use exam board sepcifications when teaching and engage the student in past exam papers so that they may learn how to write a scientific answer using clear english which is essential to pass an exam. I also regularly test students so that I am confident that they understand what I have taught them; and if I feel that a specific topic requires extra attention I will happily focus on it more.

Students are also provided with learning aids such as animated videos so that they may understand speciific biological and chemical concepts easily. This has been popular with my previous students who have been eager to see theoretical science put into action. Such learning aids can also be used outside of tuition lessons which is ideal for when a student is revising alone.

Personal Description:
I am an undergraduate student studying electrical and electronic engineering in University of Leeds. I do privet teaching as a part-time job.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching mathematics since I was 16, as I found that most of the difficulties that I overcame when solving problems were mutual between other students. I have been teaching core A level modules and mechanics modules, along side with GCSE mathematics for 2 years.
As I have always enjoyed sciences, I started broadening my knowledge by reading a number of texts which are mostly at university level. Having done all the sciences at A level, I am very familiar with the style of questions, and the style of answers required.

Tutoring Approach:

With mathematics, I believe that the problem based approach is the most effective, specially in mechanics. I find that most student have not understood some fundamentals from the previous years, so before I start to get to the content required, I make sure that the students know the fundamentals.
In contrast I find that most student, including myself, would prefer to understand the theory before attempting any science questions.
For both mathematics and the sciences I believe that a strong exam technique is required in order to achieve the top grades. This is achieved by setting regular homeworks and past paper questions.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated with a BSc Environmental Science degree from the University of Birmingham achieving a 2.1 and I now work at an SEN school as a Teaching Assistant. My degree spans many disciplines ranging from Chemistry, Biology to Earth and Atmospheric sciences. Having been the Environmental Society's events manager (at my university) punctuality and time-keeping are of utmost importance and I will always be punctual when attending a tutee's place of residence to teach. Also, my university professors have commented on my approach to teaching and communicating with a range of audiences and indicated that I effectively adapt my teaching style to suit the listener.

Music is a hobby of mine and I have been educated to such a standard, I am able to teach music to others. I have been affiliated with several orchestras for over a decade and I play clarinet to grade 8, have an extensive knowledge of the flute and saxophone and I have also completed grade 8 theory (ABRSM). I have many years' experience with orchestras, conducting and teaching individuals from intonation to breathing technique.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously tutored a GCSE student before her final Geography exam where she was successful and I have experience with teaching young people as exemplified by my orchestral association. I also have helped teach my 6 other siblings who have not progressed on to university but have benefited in their own GCSEs with my knowledge and helpful advice.
I currently work as a Teaching Assistant and Laboratory Technician in a school with children who have Special Educational Needs and my expertise with teaching children will be utilised when tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always strive for excellence where I aim to bring out the best in my tutee. I will always draft up a plan for my tutee and the parent (if applicable) to see so we can monitor the progress over the session(s). Also, I will set mock exam questions of my own and of the exam board's composition after a set period to ensure progress is being made; if progress is negligible however, the salient features will be addressed again.

Personal Description:
I come from a long line of education. Having gone through O Levels, A Levels, Undergraduate and Postgraduate degrees has given me the knowledge and understanding of a wide range of topics. I took all three sciences during O Levels and carried on with Biology and Chemistry to start a degree in Biochemistry. I am very proficient in English and Mathematics where I have achieved an A in both. I also went to do a Masters degree where I studied Business Finance, therefore I can say I have a wide range of expertise.
I am currently working as a Business Analyst and am generally free over the evenings and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics for a long time. I started tutoring during my high school where I have been involved in various peer tutoring groups. I have also been in the committee of the Model United Nations and used to teach the incoming delegates how to make resolutions and how to be confident in speaking.
I used to also be a part of the debating society giving me the opportunity to teach other students how to carry out a proper debate and how to produce a flawless argument.

Tutoring Approach:

I generally believe that education can be fun if you are taught by people who make it fun. I try to engage with the student with a calm approach and work towards making the student feel comfortable while teaching. Being young and friendly, I know I can use these approaches to relate much more with students.
I have worked with individual tutoring and group tutoring, knowing that if the tutor shows hard work, it shall be reflected in the student.

Personal Description:
I am a second year undergraduate at the London School of Economics, where I am reading for a BSc in Economics. I attained 11 A*s at GCSE; a 98.2% average at AS-Level, scoring the highest grades in my year; 3 A*s at A-Level, where I achieved 100% in ten of the exams I sat; and a very high first class in my first year exams.

I attended Sutton Grammar School for Boys up until the final year, when I left to pursue private tuition as my full-time occupation, while studying for my A2 exams in my spare time. Following this, I founded Enspire Academy, a tech-inspired 11+ tuition academy that ensures the newest, most effective educational experience for its students.

Teaching others is something I have always enjoyed. Being part of a genuine improvement in a student's performance and confidence is a unique and gratifying opportunity, and I look forward to meeting and working with new students.

- GCSE Prize & Business Prize

Teaching Experience:

I know what it takes to do well in exams and I really have been through it all: Common Entrance, the 11+, SATS, GCSEs, A-Levels, even University Admission Tests.

Over the past year I've taught over forty students, privately: from four-year-olds with Etonian aspirations, to A-Level students in need of additional coaching, to GCSE students who have fallen behind in class.

I have worked at the Wimbledon branch of NumberWorks'nWords for the past two years now. During my time there I have learned the importance of planning, lesson structure and how technology can be used to enhance a student's learning experience. I also teach Maths lessons at Shine Tutors, an 11+ specialist centre.

Tutoring Approach:

At the start of any session I try to glean what I can by asking students which areas exactly they're weakest in, what they want to work on, what their personal targets are, and then set them a range of problems (based on their curriculum when possible) to locate, more specifically, areas for improvement.

I often set personalised homeworks and mini-tests, to ensure my students have a solid understanding of the key concepts. Recently, I've begun using touch screen technology to engage more actively with my younger students, and I ensure all notes taken are contained neatly and securely in a revision booklet, for easy reference.

Personal Description:
Hola! My name is Gemma and I am from Spain. I have been living in England for the last 3 years.

The first 2 years I lived with an English family in Petworth (West Sussex) using the time to improve my English and gaining my Cambridge English qualifications. During this time I taught Spanish to their daughters (6/10/14 years old). After a while I decided to continue my teaching career in England and started working at Pennthorpe School as a Voluntary Support Teacher of Spanish, History, Geography and Drama to gain teaching experience in England and to become familiar with the English Education System and National Curriculum. The last 5 months I have been taking a Spanish and History Supply Teacher role in different primary and secondary schools round West Sussex. Meanwhile, I have been running one to one Spanish tuition to all ages and levels.

I am a highly motivated and enthusiastic person. For me, the rewards and challenges of teaching offer a sense of satisfaction that is enhanced by the personal development of the students I teach. I have real enthusiasm to learn and grow as a teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher (holding QTS) with over 4 year experience working as a History and Spanish teacher at different levels and with a wide variety of students from primary school level to GCSE and A level.

I started to work as a Spanish and History teacher in Spain while I was studying my degree. My last year of university, I got an scholarship and I went to Germany where I had my first opportunity of teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

In 2011 I went again to Germany to work in a language school as a Spanish teacher at different levels and ages, from children to adults.

The last 3 years in England I have been teaching Spanish as a foreign language from Primary to GCSE and A level as a one to one tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

In my teaching I am careful to ensure that students are provided with study materials and teaching methods that give them confidence and allow them to make good progress. However, I understand that every student is different and what works for one may not necessarily work for another. That is why I plan my teaching to individual's learning needs.

My aim is to make my students feel comfortable and confident with the language, making a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I believe in creating a supportive classroom environment and using positive reinforcement strategies.

My approach consists in finding out what people already know, how they enjoy learning and what they wish to learn. It all starts from there. Together, we work on the skills that need developing.

I give homework in order to enforce what has been learnt during the lesson, however, this tends to vary according to the student's needs.
