I like to find out the particular learning needs of each pupil and to make sure that their understanding is as complete as possible. It is important to me that the pupil has an enjoyable and fulfilling time during the tutorial. Where he or she shows an interest, I enjoy open discussions that can extend learning into any area of biology, chemistry or physics. I enjoy explaining the underlying mathematical theory that underpin scientific principles.

Personal Description:
I have a first class degree in mathematics. I am learning Russian. I am interested in astronomy.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped many students achieve much better results than they initially expected. Many people find that they can understand what they at first found difficult in a well managed one to one setting. I give the lessons at my home. I have been tutoring since 1987. I have a first class honours degree in mathematics. I work as a mathematics tutor in a state school, teaching A level maths to sixth-formers and able pupils in lower years. I have also helped students prepare for STEP. I get about half my students on recommendation

Tutoring Approach:

I do in the lesson what the student asks me to do, but I am prepared to structure a course for somebody not in school,

Personal Description:
My name is Kieran and I am an enthusiastic English student currently studying at Loughborough University. I have worked in the theatre for around eight years and am therefore incredibly confident and easily approachable. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at school and always thought about the prospect of teaching or tutoring so that I could pass on my knowledge and love for English to those who perhaps need some extra help in reaching those top grades at GCSE and AS level. My age also allows me to empathise with current GCSE and A-Level students as it was not long ago that I sat those exams myself. I am therefore confident with current exam board syllabuses and the relevant texts being studied. Please feel free to contact me regarding the tutoring of English Literature.

Teaching Experience:

Supervisor and staff at Rainham School for Girls summer school 2012.
Volunteer at local theatre group teaching 7 - 18 year olds music.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very relaxed attitude towards tutoring as I believe this is the best environment to learn. Students will bring current school work with them to the session and we will work through any problems or issues that they are struggling with. As well as this, I will prepare literary examples and worksheets if students give me notice as to what they wish to study during the coming session. I am completely dedicated to helping and supporting those who need an extra push during exams or even just wish to receive extra guidance within the field of English Literature.

Personal Description:
I am a fairly recent (but mature) graduate who is hugely enthusiastic about learning. For fun I like to dress up as a Tudor and take part in Living History events. I also very much like to take my slightly dopey dog to the beach where I regularly need to prevent her swimming to France!

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of teaching was through home-educating my daughter from when she was 6 through to GSCE-level. I then went on to do a PGCE in Lifelong Learning (post-16 education) during which time I taught a range of business and tourism modules. Since completing my PGCE I have completed short-term contracts teaching English as a Foreign Language. Presently, I work part-time as an enabler for physically and/ or mentally disabled students in higher education and part-time as a private tutor.I have experience tutoring adult learners, home-educated students (i.e. delivery of full syllabus) and students who are at school but need additional subject help, for example with exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand how important it is to have a supportive and patient teacher who is willing to answer any question any number of times until the student 'gets it' and that's what I am always prepared to do. I think learning should be fun and relevant to our lives and endeavour to carry this over into lessons. The exact approach would always depend on the needs and wishes of the student.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Yulia. I am a native Russian speaker, fluent in English, graduated in the Russian Federation (Moscow) and worked there later on for over 10 years. For the last four years I have been living and working in the UK and this has allowed me to develop a better understanding of the English language, its cultural nuances, people and life. I was kindly surprised that there are people out there who are truly interested in learning Russian and therefore I felt that I could help them to learn one of the most difficult languages in an easy and affordable ways.
Every year I spend some time in Russia to maintain connection with the Russian language in the most effective way while enjoying company of my family and friends.

Teaching Experience:

If you are planning to learn Russian, you are certainly in the right place. Whether you are a beginner or can speak some Russian already, I will be delighted to help you to learn, improve or master your Russian.
As a Russian tutor I have an experience in teaching Russian both children and adults using the finest adapted educational materials for teaching and learning Russian language as a foreign at all levels. I use a large variety of textbooks with CD and DVD-supplement, training materials for the development of speech, writing, listening and reading comprehension skills, which helps to make the learning process as effective and productive as possible. I currently run a Russian group course for the beginners.
My degree in law and experience in teaching Russian ensures the quality of the final result- you are able to communicate in Russian. I will give full attention to your needs and wishes and provide you with a very honest and friendly service. Being based in the UK I am always easy to reach and deal with.

Tutoring Approach:

In order to make a learning process as interesting as possible I will prepare an individual language plan for you based on your own learning style and ability, language requirements, time commitment and any personal motivations you might have to learn Russian.
If you are learning Russian from scratch and want to become fluent, my aim is to help you to explore the language in its complexity straight from the beginning. From my experience grammar and vocabulary is a key to the successful learning process and ability to communicate with a great confidence but studying just grammar can be quite difficult or daunting, that is why a combination of audio, visual and interactive activities, which I try to integrate into my lessons, help to bring more fun and promising results.

Personal Description:
I am Philosophy Graduate with a passion for ideas and critical thinking. I have written articles for a variety of blogs and delivered lectures to an academic audience.

In the past I have also worked in as a freelance musician and an IT technician.

Everything I do is influenced by my passion for ideas and my desire to convey them to others, a conscientious work ethic and lively sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first foray into academic tutoring, I have previously taught Judo at senior and junior levels. In addition, I have been responsible for helping people improve their IT skills when I worked for The Department For Work and Pensions.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to meet every individual where they are in their journey of learning, rather than impose preconceived ideas on them. I try and find out how each student learns and in light of this tailor my teaching to fit them.

I always try to keep things fun and interesting as people achieve more when they are engaged an excited. I avoid pointless jargon and needless technicality.

Personal Description:
I am a 26-year old freelance journalist, born and raised in Germany. I have two Master's degrees, one in politics and one in digital journalism. Because of working in media & communications I am used to reviewing written text and highly aware of people's way of expressing themselves. I have a huge passion for languages and have learned Spanish for over 10 years now, including extensive stays in Spain, and I am perfectly fluent in English.

Teaching Experience:

Mostly 1 on 1 teaching and reviewing written texts over the last few years. Also, I taught a GCSE class in German at Royal Greenwich UTC for half a year. My students have significantly improved in their skills and I prepared several people for their move to Germany.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer a natural approach to learning languages which means engaging in everyday conversations that help the speaker get used to the way they usually talk in a new environment. I also look precisely for mistakes in any kind of written work and take much care about correct grammar and spelling as I do in my own publications.

For politics in journalism I can also edit written work and talk through complex political and social processes which I have extensively analysed during my studies.

Personal Description:
My name is Rebecca and I am an enthusiastic and hardworking teacher. I am 23 years old and believe that my friendly, patient approach to teaching allows children to reach their full potential. I am flexible and I will use a variety of teaching methods to help with English and Maths at a primary level.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching across the primary age groups and I have experience of working in one-to-one situations in a classroom. I have planned for all abilities and I have ensured that my work is differentiated according to each child's varying needs; this will reflect in my tutoring. During my classroom teaching experience, I have gained ideas for different techniques to help children with their English and Maths; this will again reflect in my tutoring. For example, I often believe that a practical approach helps significantly with Maths and will incorporate this into my tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and patient individual whose tutoring will be tailored to my tutee's needs. I believe that a calm approach is essential and that each tutee learns in their own unique ways; therefore I will find a way to help based on how the tutee learns best. I am very approachable and encouraging and will build a positive environment for the tutee to learn to the best of their ability.

View Thomas's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
Originally from Birmingham, qualified in Anatomy in the University of Dundee, I am now studying for a PhD in Anatomy in Leeds University. I have previous experience teaching in Anatomy, as well as private tuition for A Level maths and biology, and GCSE subjects including all Sciences, Maths, English literature and language and have often supported students in other areas they are struggling. I take pride in my work, so I ensure that I do reading prior to tuition and if there is anything I have missed out or wish to add/correct, I ensure that this information is passed on as soon as possible, and then covered in the next session as a revision.

I am a hard worker, with experience in managerial experience, teaching experience in different settings and am often used to proofread works from a variety of people. I'm not afraid to dive in to the deep end and I relish the opportunity to learn something new - something I aim to pass on when I am tutoring.

### Please note I can also teach Anatomy to a university level for 20 an hour ###

Teaching Experience:

I am currently an anatomy demonstrator for many students at the University of Leeds. I have privately tutored two academic students - one a GCSE student in a private school, and another in A Levels. In addition to this, I often proofread works relating to history, heritage management, computing and forensics all to a university level.

I have taught 40 volunteers skills such as active listening, customer experience, empathic communications, emotional resilience and methods of providing support.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand students sometimes take a while to grasp a key point - sometimes this might be because the concept is new, or sometimes it is because the approach to the subject isn't in a way that the student prefers. I prefer to identify the method of learning that ensures retention of information the best and utilize that. I have a can-do attitude and won't allow negativity. It is usually just that this subject needs to be addressed in a different method or that the student has lost motivation. In this case, I would allow for a break to get a glass of water and maybe revise a previous lesson for 5 minutes, before readdressing the more difficult subject.
