Personal Description:
I am a senior manager working within the public sector based in central London. My academic qualifications in this field are supported by extensive professional experience working within local and central government. I provide that sought after combination of in depth academic political knowledge with 'on the ground' relevant and extensive practical experience. Many of my clients comment on this being a significant factor in why I was chosen above other tutors.

I am not a State Registered Teacher. I like to ensure that this is clear. However the vast majority of politics teachers are not qualified in politics and have little in depth understanding of the nuances of British or US political systems. Many of my students ask me why I don't teach. The simple answer is that I can pick the subject I want to teach and throw 100% of my time into one student at a time.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive tutoring experience of A level Government and Politics and a proven track record. I am currently tutoring students for Edexcel and AQA A Level Government and Politics and essay writing. I can provide verifiable references from recent/current students.

The last round of exams (August 2016) all my students achieved a minimum two grade increase to their original grades (some going from E to B) and can provide details and personal references for any potential client to check. All of my students this year achieved a B or above.

A significant amount of my client base is built up through recommendations from previous clients. I also have extensive experience of teaching adults in an adult education environment and have an NVQ in Delivering Learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide tutoring on a 121 basis but am totally flexible depending on the tutees needs. I tutor to the subject syllabus, with the added value of my experience, expertise and contextual detail on current political and social events being included. I build confidence above all else.

It is always difficult inviting a new tutor into your house, but you will find I am relaxed, friendly, totally adaptable and totally reliable. My clients comment they can set their watch by my punctuality! I am available most evenings and all weekends but with sufficient notice I can also tutor during the day.

Included in the fee is full email and telephone support - no extra charges !! In addition the first consultation is free of charge for you to meet me and ensure that I am suitable for your needs. I will travel most places but if it is a substantial distance will add travel costs.

Many of my clients will support the fact that they actually realised they began to enjoy the subject following being tutored by me.

Personal Description:
I aim to support each individual in achieving his or her full potential, and have received regular feedback that I have an approachable style which empowers students and puts them at their ease. I have been a specialist in English Language skills, particularly English for Academic Purposes, for a number of years, via Skype, email and face to face tuition. I play violin and sing regularly, and have been an orchestral and chamber musician for thirty five years.

I have supported various students in their preparation for GCSEs in all three sciences, together with A levels in English and Psychology. In addition, I provide support for a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Linguistics, but more generally in academic writing at degree level for all subjects.

In addition to my degree/masters subjects and my PGCE, I also have Level 3 (A level equivalent) Diplomas in Psychology and General Science, together with Level 4 in Advanced Anatomy and Physiology and Level 5 in CBT plus Level 5 Diploma in Life Coaching and Counselling.

Teaching Experience:

I have thirty years' experience as a qualified teacher, of which I spent 15 years in leadership positions in schools, including two head ships in England and Scotland. I teach English for Academic Purposes to both overseas and home students, support preparation for public exams in Music, English, Science and Psychology and have a range of violin and singing pupils. In addition, I prepare students for IELTs, PTEG/PTE Academic, for which I am an examiner, and FCE/CPE.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tailor my approach to meet the needs of each individual student. Lessons are a mixture of interactive and instructional, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions in a stress- free environment. I use electronic resources to support my teaching and will mark and instruct via online instructional methods where required to do so.

For exam preparation I am familiar with Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Cambridge exam boards, and have experience preparing A level students for AQA A2 Psychology, together with Edexcel and AQA English/English Literature.

Personal Description:
Trusting me to tutor your child ensures fresh ideas and intervention, reliability and meaningful interaction allowing them to successfully achieve personal goals. I offer patience, lots of encouragement and tailored feedback, all with a view to improving your child's performance.

I take a keen interest in developments within my profession and maintain an up-to-date working knowledge of educational initiatives and learning strategies. I have an enthusiastic and compassionate nature and enjoy supporting students to achieve their goals.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified Primary School Teacher and have been teaching since I qualified 6 years ago. I have experience of teaching from early years through to upper stages of primary school; however my main strengths lie in the upper school having taught P7 now for the last 3 years successfully preparing children for high school. I have a particular interest in language, writing and maths and I am also the Science Coordinator for my school. I have training and experience of teaching children with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. I am happy to develop skills in language and maths, support homework tasks or design an individual learning programme suited to the child's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a fun and approachable person and this reflects in my teaching. I believe in implementing a variety of teaching approaches and strategies to motivate and engage students.

I enjoy getting to know my students and tailoring my teaching approaches to their individual needs. By taking prior learning into consideration, I can ensure that learning experiences remain challenging therefore increasing interest and motivation.

Personal Description:
I am a professional, patient, and fun loving person. I have a BSc., MSc., and am just completing a PhD in Psychology. I enjoy reading and writing academic and popular literature and I have a broad knowledge of assessment criteria used by schools and universities.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 3 years now at the undergraduate, postgraduate, and adult learner level. I have taught traditional lectures, seminars, workshops, and practical sessions. I also have experience designing and marking assessments at different levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be an enjoyable but challenging experience. I utilise a mix of paper-based tasks, presentations, and reading. I believe in constantly measuring performance for individuals so they know how they are improving and I also employ an "errorless learning" approach; I don't believe highlighting peoples failures is an effective method of teaching, rather I treat a wrong answer as a learning experience and encourage people to fail often so that they can grow rapidly.

I derive my learning materials from the official syllabus and supplement my own material when I feel a broader knowledge is necessary. I also focus on written and oral communication so that factual knowledge can be effectively translated to exam success.

Personal Description:
First of all, I am a friendly, understanding and very patient person. I love children and I am a person who can quickly build a good relationship with them. I am qualified, professional and an enthusiastic teacher with many years experiences. I love teaching children & young people because this is my passion and it is also one of a few things that make me happy and brings a lot of satisfaction :)

Teaching Experience:

I am qualified Master of Polish Philology with specialisation: Teacher of Polish Language. At the moment, I'm working as a teacher of Polish language in Polish Club KLEKS in Kirklandneuk Primary School in Renfrew. Before I started private tutoring, I also worked a few years as a volunteer Teacher in Polish organisations in Scotland.

Tutoring Approach:

Each child is an individual who requires different teaching methods. After checking the linguistic capabilities of a child, I am trying to prepare appropriate educational materials and methods, adapted to the educational level of the student. I know very well the language problems of children from Polish families in UK and I can help, using a variety of teaching methods and interesting resources. I always try to make the lesson interesting and attractive for children and give them a lot of fun :)

Personal Description:
I have been speaking Spanish for over 30 years and have a passion for the language, for Spain and the Spanish culture.

I have visited Spain every year since I was eight and regularly visit friends across the country and members of my family who live near Valencia.  I spent a year of my degree studying, living and working in Northern Spain, at the University of Salamanca.  I regularly update and improve my own language and teaching skills and most recently attended an intensive week's teaching and learning course in Málaga . 

I have a passion for watching people develop as foreign language speakers and have been privileged to share my enthusiasm for the language and culture across a range of ages and abilities -  from 5 years old to 70+ covering all levels from tourist, conversational, GCSE, A-Level and International Baccalaureate.  

Teaching Experience:

I have a degree in both Spanish and Teaching and have been teaching the language in colleges, primary and secondary schools for almost 10 years.  I am a co-author for the new CGP GCSE Study Guides and workbooks. I am also an examiner for the International Baccalaureate Course. 

Tutoring Approach:

I offer 1-2-1 Spanish tuition over the web using Skype or face to face tuition in the Exeter area.  I teach all ages from beginners to A-Level students; whether you are a total beginner, did Spanish at school and are looking at getting back into the language or are an advanced speaker wanting to hone your language skills. My strength is in working with you to create a tailored, relaxed and fun session. I will design a course with only you in mind.  I ensure your lessons have a balance between the four skills of speaking, reading, writing and listening. We will work at your pace.  Whatever your personal goal, we will achieve it.

Personal Description:
I'm a student heading to The Queens College, Oxford in 2017 to study Classics with an emphasis on Philosophy, my main area of interest. Im the oldest of five children and generally a very patient, bookish person who tends to get on with people well. Throughout my schooling I was told that my goals were unachieveable because of dyslexia, and I have worked hard to prove that to be false, so I am dedicated to helping others when ordinary schooling isn't quite enough - be that to push an A to an A* or pass an exam or just improve skills in any given area.
Outside academics, I play the piano and enjoy spending time with my family and my dogs.

Teaching Experience:

During school I took part in several different tutoring programmes; teaching science master classes to underprivileged 4-8 year olds, tutoring for the 11+ and CE exams, tutoring for GCSE level students in Maths, all three sciences, English, and religious studies, and tutoring fellow AS and A Level students during sixth form. These have ranged from people who want extra revision and marked work before exams to people who are struggling and retaking exams multiple times, to people who are just learning English. In total I have around 150-200 hours of tutoring experience.

I've worked with many people with learning difficulties and disabilities, and am very experienced in finding ways to help people learn and revise. Often people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and other learning difficulties struggle to learn in conventional ways, and having had to be unconventional myself, I'm committed to helping people learn in ways which work well for them. One of my brothers is Autistic and non verbal, and I work with him using his special interests to make the subject engaging and working with text and images.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is centred around the premise that every person learns in a different way, and every person deserves to fulfill their goals and potential.

When tutoring younger children, I make learning fun through games and grounding the work in their interests; for example, when I was teaching English as a foreign language to 4 year old twins, we played games like hide and seek and football, where they would win if they used the right English words.

Of course, every subject requires a different kind of teaching; English language gcse can be practiced with excerpts from students favourite books or writing about favourite tv shows, whereas psychology A Level is largely about evaluative skills, so critical conversations about theories and studies are key. Each subject cultivates specific skill sets, and I aim to work with students on their own weaknesses and help them perfect their strengths; I will mark work and discuss it with them in depth, create handouts and revision notes with them, and work through papers and questions with them.
