Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level as well as Politics at A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Personal Description:
I specialise in teaching Physics and Mathematics. I began my career as a Physicist in Optoelectronics (Research & Development), and after that I moved into ICT systems engineering. I have a broad experience in industry spanning 30 years, dealing with all manner of complex and commercial applications of science and technology. Alongside that I`ve been involved in the education/ training/ tutoring of people in industry and children at secondary school level. See below summary of career roles and achievements:

Physicist for General Electric Company, Optoelectronics R & D.
ICT Specialist Engineer/Consultant, for Siemens, KCOM, Others.
Analyst, mathematical modelling in Engineering & Finance.
Educator/trainer/tutor in science/technology for industry/private.
Speaker at many international conferences on the application of technology.
Published many research papers - achieved numerous patents.

Teaching Experience:

Experienced tutor - I enjoy educating people of all ages and have been providing a private tuition service for some time to children at secondary school level and also to adults who wish to extend their knowledge in those areas. See below summary of teaching experience:

Have been providing tutoring in Science (specialism in Physics) and Mathematics for many years.
Currently providing tutoring support services for an outstanding selective school.
Well experienced in the various exam boards, AQA, Edexcel, OCR (A & B).
Recent assessment for "Teacher Training Scholarship", conducted by the Institute of Physics for teaching Physics at secondary level - scholarship awarded (1 of only 100 in the UK for that year); had to demonstrate the necessary teacher qualities, including an excellent knowledge of Physics, and the ability to effectively communicate scientific concepts to a diverse group of people.
Some experience in the school classroom, teaching science at secondary level.
Track record (references available) of major improvement in student exam grade levels.
Helped many students achieve required grades for University entry.

Tutoring Approach:

My ultimate goal for any student is to make real and noticeable progress in their subject. Different students learn differently and it's important for me to identify their own unique learning style, not only to maximise their learning but to inspire and motivate them to learn. I endeavour to make learning both informative and enjoyable. See below a summary of my general approach:

Focus on any identified areas of weakness and build on strengths.
Adopt teaching method to suit student's learning style.
Facilitate learning; encourage students to use own ideas to solve problems.
Teach by principle enabling students to deal with all manner of complex problems.
To aid understanding some topics maybe covered on a wider level than the syllabus specifies.
Assess progress using exercise workbooks and other test assessments.
Prepare students for exams; going through past papers and exam techniques.
Homework is given and completion is expected by next lesson.

My broad career experience helps me to impart knowledge in a more enthusiastic, clearer, convincing, and mature way, with the ability to better relate scientific/mathematical concepts to everyday life and to the commercial world.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2015, where I completed my Masters in Bioscience & Business. Prior to this, I studied Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London for 2 years before switched to studying Biological Sciences locally at Salford University. I graduated in 2013 with a First Class Honours in Biological Sciences (BSc Hons) ranking in the top 2% of our class. Teaching is something I have enjoyed immensely throughout my studies, and continue to do so.

Coming from a varied academic background has given me a strong foundation in all of the Natural Sciences (Maths, Chemistry & Biology and Physics). I am passionate about all of these subjects - I would be more than willing to help a student out in either of them regardless of their level or previous achievement

I studied in Manchester for my GCSE`s and A-levels where I achieved the following grades:

4 A`s at A2-level in: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics & General Studies

GCSE level: 6A*'s: Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Business Studies, French, 2As, 2Bs

Teaching Experience:

Taught Maths & Sciences extensively at GCSE/A-level while at school and college. This was as a part-time tutor for under-achieving students after school and during some lunch breaks.

As well as often helping out classmates unofficially I have tutored students up to A2 & Undergraduate level in Chemistry & Biology (and selected topics in Maths) helping them to achieve the highest possible marks in the their exams. All of my students have achieved their goals.

Teaching so far it has been an immensely rewarding experience - and one that I am committed to pursuing!

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each tutee as an individual, and work with them according to their specific needs. I believe it is important to learn how to think critically & independently, especially when tackling the Sciences or Maths. I encourage and help tutees to develop this thinking process and also to find out what really motivates them to excel in their chosen subjects.

I have many relevant learning resources (books, lecture notes, past exams, etc..) for all of my teaching subjects so along with your own learning materials I will add in some extra helpful material as & when necessary.

If you (as a parent or student) can specify what exactly your aim is (whether it be to cover a single topic, to complete a past paper or to learn a whole course from start to finish in time for an exam) I will help you to prepare and execute the best plan of action to reach your targets!

Please get in touch to discuss your goals and how best I can help you achieve them

Personal Description:
I received my degree from the University of Birmingham (BSc Environmental Science) in 2013 achieving a 2.1 classification. In 2014-15 I studied MSc Surveying and Land Environmental Management at the University of Exeter (Penryn campus).

I am well organised, efficient and take a friendly approach to tutoring - as well as being hard-working and easy to get along with, I am reliable and prefer my lessons to be enjoyable as well as informative. My passion for cooking, combined with another passion of mine; travel, has enabled me to spend considerable time in numerous countries giving me first hand knowledge of different languages/cultures and business environments. So far I have been fortunate to visit New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Korea, France, Spain, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Finland, Norway, Sweden and I intend to visit many more.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous tutoring experience with both young people (under 18) and international students since 2011. I have been able to help my past two tutees from UKtutors to A's in Geography GCSE and A Level respectively.
I also completed a 4 week internship in a New Zealand grammar school in the summer of August/September 2012, allowing me to gain classroom experience as well as helping out more recently in a primary school in Finland, teaching English.

Meanwhile, I tutor/help out my younger brother who is 18 and studying for his A levels.

I also have my own 'proofreading' enterprise and I have helped foreign students with their conversational English skills since 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an informal approach but also ensure that sessions are structured well and tailored for each individual students' needs so every tutee is able to get the most from the session.

I am perfectly happy to re-arrange or cancel classes if necessary, I just ask to be notified at least 24 hours prior to the intended lesson.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly English male tutor, aged 60, retired from a career in IT, but with a life-long interest in the English language and its quirks. My interest in teaching languages developed from my own experience of learning Spanish, in particular practising with Spanish people and finding myself in turn explaining to them how English works ... !

Teaching Experience:

My experience of English teaching ranges from teaching young children with almost no English, to teaching adults with a very good level of English (but maybe not a good accent!) I also previously worked as an ESOL Adult Education tutor for Northampton Council.

My experience of teaching Spanish includes teaching friends and colleagues on a more ad-hoc basis, in addition to giving private tuition for small groups or individuals, usually beginners. My level of Spanish is sufficient to enable me to teach beginners, and my experience of teaching English together with the insights gained from my own Spanish classes together with my enthusiasm for the language enable me to teach in an interesting and effective way.

Tutoring Approach:

The initial level of skill and the target knowledge will vary for each person and it is vital to understand this as the first stage. Teaching needs to then be tailored to provide a gradual progression towards the targets. Classes must provide a variety of challenging elements, mixed always with a bit of fun or something "offbeat". What drives me is the enthusiasm to convey and explain my own fascination with language, whether English or Spanish.

Personal Description:
** I am not currently taking on any new students for 2017**

I am an ex- Imperial College academic who now runs a team and personal development consultancy. I am calm and encouraging in manner. I moved out of the city into the countryside six years ago and have never once regretted it.

I was a Science and Engineering Ambassador for SETNET. I was responsible for organizing a number of Science Outreach events. Science can be fun!! I have a 2014 DBS check.

I have been told that I am a good motivator and that I help people fulfill their potential. All my students show significant grade enhancement, sometimes from U to A!

Teaching Experience:

I was a senior lecturer in Physical Chemistry at Imperial College London, where I was also Senior Tutor. This meant that I had responsibility for the entire departmental tutorial system for some~450 students and the training of new members of staff. I have been involved in small group teaching for over 13 years.

I have been privately tutoring AS/A2 Chemistry and Physics for around five years in the Hants / Surrey borders.

I also help with UCAS applications as I had an admissions role at IC.

I have some experience of working with people with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD and Aspergers.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different and I tailor my method to the needs of the student, offering a bespoke approach. It usually takes three or four sessions to get to know what does and does not work for each individual. I try different methods. Some people learn more visually and conceptually others like more practical methods. I prefer to work through problems / exam papers with the student rather than "teach". That way in working together the student takes responsibility for their own learning. Learning is by discussion and doing.

I try to be as flexible as possible and fit round family schedules.

Typically I only take on ~ 10 students per year...

Personal Description:
I'm a professional actor/voice over artist with a BA in Journalism and MA in Acting.
I was born in Russia and have lived and trained in London for over 10 years.

Acting: I have trained to be a professional actress at a nationally accredited drama school Drama Studio London and have worked as an actor and voice over artist since graduating in 2011.

Russian Language: I am bilingual: native Russian speaker with native level of English

Teaching Experience:

I'm just starting out as a tutor.
Acting: I have trained a few students how to present better (in a corporate environment), and have constantly felt I could teach really well. I'm a good actor with clear understanding what demands drama schools have, which drama schools focus on what. I'd be an excellent tutor for aspiring actors.
Language: I've given a range of private English lessons to foreign speakers, and thought I might as well teach Russian too. I have a BA (NARIC approved, local MA) in Journalism from The State St.-Petersburg University, one of the best universities in the country. I have worked as a radio presenter and print journalist for a range of Russian media, including Marie Claire, Elle, Empire, Rolling Stone.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very attentive and involved with my students.
Acting: This is very sensitive type of art. There is a lot of psychology involved in performing. I will not only help with preparing a speech for drama school auditions (speech clarity, projection, tension release, delivery) but also share a few tips on how to develop your acting skills.
Russian Language: I will be able to help only students who have already had certain level of Russian language training. I will help to understand how the language works, what Russian mentality is like, work on pronunciation, sentence structure, etc. I can not, I'm afraid, help beginners.

Personal Description:
Originally from Leeds, where I have a decade of teaching and tutoring experience, I like to keep things positive, upbeat, friendly and fun whenever possible.I am currently working for Sustrans delivering safe cycling training in schools and community groups all around the region. I enjoy sport, reading and music, I play a bit of guitar and love to cycle, so much so, I may well turn up to our session on my bike!

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Maths at Leeds City College for 10 years, receiving consistently good annual lesson observation results. I delivered classes at all levels from Entry 1 to Level 2 Functional Skills Numeracy and Foundation and Higher Level GCSE. Along side this, I enjoyed tutoring many students at KS2, KS3, GCSE and A Level. I also worked with learners looking to improve their Maths for related areas of study such as Engineering and Accountancy.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important aspect of a tutoring relationship is communication. The freedom to ask questions, seek clarification and repeat examples and exercises until a topic or concept is fully consolidated is the primary benefit of a private tutoring arrangement. I am flexible to the needs of my students and enjoy the challenge of finding solutions to learners' problems.

Personal Description:
I obtained my degree in physics and doctorate in theoretical physics from the University of Nottingham. I then spent ten years working as a physicist in various universities in Italy, New Zealand and the UK. My specialty was low temperature physics. I am fascinated by science and try to pass on my enthusiasm.

In my spare time I enjoy white-water kayaking.

Teaching Experience:

One of my responsibilities as a postdoctoral researcher was to mentor physics students. I am used to explaining difficult concepts and techniques in a clear, simple and concise way. I have been working as a maths and physics tutor since January 2016. I currently teach students from 13 to adult, up to advanced higher.

I have recently become involved in school outreach, doing talks on the Big bang.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage the student to think for himself/herself rather than spoon-feeding the material. I ensure that the student understands the fundamental concepts behind each topic, and does not simple regurgitate methods by rote. I aim to instill a fundamental understanding of the subject, but as exams approach I go through past papers and hone exam technique.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
