Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Dr. Zara and I tutor students in the age group 13-18. I hold a Ph.D. in medical biochemistry and a PGCHE from the University of Kent. I am currently working at the University of Bristol.

I specialise in teaching Chemistry and Biology at A-level, specifically for OCR and AQA exam boards. I also teach Edexcel Biology (SNAB). I come across as a friendly, patient and enthusiastic tutor. I strive to make learning a creative and enjoyable experience, while always keeping the students goals in mind.

In the academic year ending June 2011, 80% of my students of my students achieved predicted or better-than-predicted grades, and the majority of them were able to go to a University of their choice. Their testimonials are available for you to read on my website.

Apart from regular tutoring, I also offer intensive coaching in preparation for entrance exams, GCSE and A-level exams. I am able to help with homework assignments and proofreading. Additionally, I have previous experience of tutoring students with special needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have six years teaching experience at both undergraduate and post-graduate level, in addition, I have been a part-time tutor for four years. I have marked GCSE and A-level papers and can offer advice on the best way to answer exam questions to maximise marks. Most of my students show rapid increase in confidence levels after 2-3 sessions of tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to motivate young people to achieve the best of their abilities. I believe that all students can do well, turning negative barriers into positive outcomes. My approach is to break down difficult areas into bite size achievable goals. I set goals for my tutees and plan my lessons well in advance. Lesson plans and student progress reports are available to both tutees and parents. For students who work with me for an entire year, I offer additional help with exam paper revision and feedback sessions.

Personal Description:
A highly experienced teacher with relevant qualifications. I hold a masters in business studies and also a bachelors degree in civil engineering. I have an enhanced CRB disclosure.

GCE June 2012 update - Business studies student's confirm A level results. Fantastic! Student references available.

Maths Update!! Year 8 & 10 students moved up to higher set maths at school
March Update!! Private tutoring Business studies students achieved A grade in Unit 2 and Unit 3!!

Teaching Experience:

I teach business studies (GCSE, AS/A2) at an independent school in Cambridge. I also do private tutoring in business studies and maths (KS3, GCSE). I have huge resources and materials available from my teaching experience and I know how to prepare candidates for exams.
My maths students are always being moved up a set to a higher level.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure the students understand the topics and check this by using lots of question and answer materials. We go through exam techniques and how to answer questions i.e. what the examiner is looking for. I provide case studies which we discuss and pull out the relevant information required to answer the question. I get the students to do lots of practice in application, analysing and evaluating case studies.

For maths I work on moving the student up a level. I first assess what level the students are at (level 5, 6, 7, 8). If they are at level 5 we work on moving them to Level 6 and above. I always work on moving them up another level

Personal Description:
As a motivated, organized and dynamic individual, I feel I can bring so much to the teaching profession. From a very young age I had an interest in computers and Teaching, and a wonder of how they worked. These fascinations lead me to pursue a bachelor's degree in computing, and then I continue to excel in Technology and did my Masters in Information Technology. Then along with my teaching job, I feel that I had developed deep interest in Web Technologies so I did my masters in Computer Applications.
I first realized I would like to become a teacher at secondary school so I continued my career as a teacher in ICT for about 4 years in various schools and really enjoyed working with all key stages. I have got versatile experience of teaching Physics and basic sciences to GCSE students as well. I had a good rapport with my Head Teachers and this has influenced me greatly to pursue a career in teaching.
I believe in teaching with live resources , practical activities , demonstrations , full theory support and assessing my student's honestly so see how my teaching is going on and do I need to make any changes in session plans to make it more innovative. I am a person full of enthusiasm and knowledge.
I believe teaching is not simply only to get students a job -- although this is part of the material equation -- it is about providing students with a set of conceptual tools that can be, and ultimately will be, used in a variety of disparate contexts. It is in other words, about inspiring students to think -- in- and out-side of the classroom.

Teaching Experience:

I got 4 years of Overseas Teaching experience as an ICT Teacher . I have taught Computer Science , Web Technologies and Information Technology in various Secondary schools. I am well versed in English and have done my Bachelors in First Division and my Double Post Graduation in Computer Applications and Information Technology with distinction.
I have achieved Level 3 in Preparing to Teach in Life Long Learning sector (PTLLS) from Filton College , Bristol. I have achieved certification in Web Professionals and achieved ISTQB Certified Tester status as well .
I have more than 5 years of working experience in Retail and Customer services which has helped me to strengthen my communication skills, problem solving skills , experience of working in a fast paced atmosphere with a knowledge of operations , cash handling , audit operations , participating in various discussions in the company at partner level.
My Recent Tutoring students includes students from Winterbourne Academy , City of Bristol College , Filton college and Bradley Stoke Community School and mentoring overseas software testing projects online.

Tutoring Approach:

I am able to motivate my students by using creative and inspirational methods of teaching.
I have great sense of humour which reduces barriers and lightens the atmosphere especially during heavy periods. An ability to make your students laugh will carry you far and gain you more respect. It also increases our confidence level and ease off any nerves in students and as a result students feel more engaged in the lessons and I get a good response which motivates me more to explore more with my learner.

I always prefer to do detail research for my students , their preferred learning styles and any barriers if they have.
I know my students can be visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learners. I have a dept at creating presentation styles for all three. My body language is my main communicator and I keep it positive at all times.
I know that the aggression, negative attitudes and behaviours that i see in some of your students have a root cause. I know that they are really scared young people who have come through some bad experiences in life. This keeps me calm and in control of me, of them and the situation.
I know that no one is more important in the world than anyone else. I know that everyone has a place in the world. I respect my peers and my students. Having that respect for others gets you the respect back from others.
I know that you can change a young person's life by helping them to realise their potential, helping them to grow, helping them to find their talents, skills and abilities.
I am passionate about what I do. Teaching young people is my true vocation in life. My purpose in life is to make a difference.

Personal Description:
Students and enhancing their unique learning experience are my priorities. I am a highly experienced and qualified English teacher, however I successfully help students achieve strong results in English, Maths and Science KS1-KS5. My passion for education is proven, as I have successfully taught numerous students who have achieved A/A* grades consistently at both GCSE and A level. I have my own professional premises that are established as a vital centre of learning within the Wolverhampton area. Also my style of 11+ teaching is engaging and provides excellent examination results. All my 11+ students have gained entry to their chosen school at this level.

With me you get a totally unique, bespoke educational experience that transforms students' current level of attainment into the realms of excellence and brilliance. This is achieved through structured, interactive lessons that provide meticulous attention to detail with SPAG, nurturing a passion for their subject and overall learning, my ability to engage students 100% with exciting and tailored tuition and my strong commitment to raising student's confidence and self belief.

Ensuring early academic development throughout KS2 to KS3 is fundamental to academic success later on. Early study skills such as securing planning skills for writing, solid comprehension skills and regular application of essential strategies and methods in both literacy and numeracy make all the difference to a child's education and ability to learn effectively.

Academic performance is about results, and students need to fully understand this while simultaneously enjoying their learning throughout all stages of development.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over ten years in the Uk and I have a 100% pass rate for 11+, additionally all of my private and mainstream school students have achieved a grade B or above at both GCSE and A level. Additionally, I specialise in English, Maths and Science KS3 SATs tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is student centred and based on performance, success and examination technique. I make all my one to one lessons fun, stimulating and engaging. Lessons should be informative, focused and really embrace the student's own unique learning style. All students enjoy my lessons and provide continuously strong feedback and testimonials.

Personal Description:
I am an honest and reliable person who works hard. I enjoy travelling, skiing and cycling. I really love my work and have decided to become a self employed tutor. I am currently living in Lowestoft, but am willing to travel as far as Norwich for employment.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1994 and have worked in Malaysia as well as the UK. I spent eight years in Malaysia working in private language schools. In addition, I spent two years teaching English to GCSE level at a boarding school.

More recently, I have worked in prisons teaching English to both foreign nationals and local prisoners. I have also taught ESOL at local colleges. I have had some experience of working with small groups of children. My specialist subject areas are English as a Foreign Language, English grammar and pronunciation.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student has different goals and needs. Therefore, I adopt a flexible approach to learning depending on what the student hopes to achieve. I believe that grammar is important and find that many students request help in this area. I also believe that reading is very important and have developed suitable resources for use with both adults and younger learners. I also work a lot on pronunciation and conversation skills. Generally, a course will include practise of all five skills with more emphasis on certain areas according to the individual needs of students.

Personal Description:
My name is James and I am an 18 year old student at the University of Chester. I currently study French at university. I am fluent in both English and French as I lived in Geneva, Switzerland for the past seven years. I went to an international school where I completed the International Baccalaureate (IB). I have four younger siblings, two sisters and two brothers, aged between 3 and 10 so I am used to being around children.

Teaching Experience:

As a part of the IB we needed to complete something called Creativity Action and Service (CAS hours), for my service I tutored students in the lower years in French. This ranged from my brothers friends in year 2 right the way through to year 10. I enjoyed my experience of tutoring and would like to further it by tutoring here in Chester whilst at university.

Tutoring Approach:

As each child's approach to learning varies, I prefer to have an introduction lesson where I can talk to the parents and the child to gain a proper understanding of the child's needs, strengths and weaknesses. This is extremely important for the 11-14 year olds and the GCSE students as it will help taylor a lesson that they can benefit from the most. This is also important for the primary school students as the lessons must be fun and interactive to keep them interested, if I can find out what they want to learn then I can plan a lesson that they will enjoy.

Personal Description:
I am a young professional who has been teaching for several years. Currently I teach a mixture of ICT, Computer Science & Business Studies. I believe in having a good rapport with the students I teach and use innovative and creative methods in my lessons to spark the engagement and development of my students. I have taught a whole collection of students at different levels and achieved a 100% pass rate with my students at KS4 & 5.

I have marked for the exam board OCR since 2014 and marked a mixture of OCR GCSE Computer Science and OCR Cambridge Nationals in ICT exam papers allowing me to provide useful insight into the exam marking systems used by exam boards.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach at a secondary school in Leeds and teach from Key Stages 3 to 5. I currently have classes studying ICT, Computer Science and Business Studies. As part of my role I lead the Computer Science courses which include OCR Computing and the new OCR 9-1 Computer Science course. I have been private tutoring for the past 2 years which has included a wide variety of clients of different ages and abilities.

Before working in Leeds I have taught at two secondary schools in Sunderland and taught in Further Education at Gateshead College.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in using a variety of teaching methods to suit the needs of the student to ensure each individual person can succeed. I believe that all students deserve to achieve and that is accomplished through a variety of styles alongside regular monitoring and assessment but also through a positive, professional manner.

Teaching Experience:

My expertise has been developed through 18 years experience of teaching English, Media Communication, Drama and Study Skills to 11-19 year olds, and leading whole-school portfolios in teaching and learning, assessment, staff development and curriculum. Embracing the challenge of leading a school in difficult circumstances, I led a dynamic and vibrant community committed to achieving success for all learners, raising aspirations and learning together in a supportive and orderly environment. My overarching leadership secured sustainable improvements in the quality of teaching which, in turn, led to significantly improved outcomes for students which saw the academy move from 'Special Measures' to a 'good' Ofsted judgement. I have a proven track record of leading students and staff to significantly improved outcomes.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is characterised by the following commitments I make to every learner I have the privilege of working with:

- I will place all learners firmly at the centre of the learning experience
- I will lead all learners towards understanding how they learn best and be mindful that academic success is underpinned by aspiration, healthy levels of self-belief, stress management, courage, organisational ability, resilience, creativity and motivation. And that's to name but a few!
- I will hold the highest expectations of all learners and craft memorable learning activities that will encourage a love of learning
- I understand that behind every set of examination results, irrespective of the scores, must stand a person who is equipped, personally, socially and culturally, to prosper in the 21st Century. For this reason, academic tutoring/coaching will always focus on personal as well as academic development.

The Study Skills coaching I offer can help resolve a wide range of common issues that can be barriers to effective learning.If you answer 'yes' to one or more of the following questions, study skills coaching could well be an investment that brings real value to your child and their future:

- Is your child's effort beginning to slip?
- Do behavioural issues exist in the school setting?
- Is your child frequently getting detentions for forgetting homework or being late?
- Do school reports show a dip in academic attainment?
- Does your child struggle to contribute to classroom activities, for example, answering questions or speaking publicly?
- Does your child give up too easily?
- Would your child benefit from improved social skills?
- Does your child become anxious around examination periods?
- Does your child require increased focus and attention prior to key examinations, e.g. entrance examinations, Year 6 standardised attainment tests and GCSE exams?

Flexible, personalised programmes can commence at any point during the year.

The first session is essential for the success of the programme going forward. In this session, we evaluate current learning strengths and weaknesses in the individual student. In order to get a full picture of the student's learning priorities, we undertake the following activities to determine areas for improvement and the best conditions for success:

- reflections from the student on how they feel about their learning experience
- a learning survey - it's good fun and gives the child/student a really useful exercise in self-reflection
- analysis of recent written reports which contain teacher comments and grades recording attainment, effort, attitude to learning, punctuality, etc. School reports can vary in format so it may be that not all this detail is available
- we ask that a parent/teacher is involved for the duration of this first session to provide their own reflections on the learning profile of the child
- completion of a personalised learning contract whereby the child/student, parent/teacher and coach agree on the required conditions needed for the child/student to be successful during the programme.
