Personal Description:
I have retired to this area where I enjoy living near the sea, and walking. I volunteer at our local theatre/cinema and sing in the choir at our Church in Southbourne. I have three grandchildren, two in London and one in USA and spend what time I can with them, using skype to talk to my family in USA. My husband and I both enjoy gardening.

Teaching Experience:

I am an Oxford graduate with more than 20 years of teaching experience in schools including A level maths and further maths (pure, statistics, and with a particular interest in mechanics). I have also given private tutoring to a large number of pupils from SATs to A levels. Many of those I have taught have returned for help with further exams, or have sent their friends to me, so most of my pupils have come through personal recommendation.

Tutoring Approach:

It gives me great pleasure to help those who struggle with maths to gain confidence and even come to enjoy the subject as well as helping the high fliers get their A grades. I expect pupils to work hard, but think it important to give work that is within their capability so the pupil can feel the achievement of getting things right.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Kevin, a friendly and approachable full time Maths tutor with a patient and empathetic attitude.

I studied Maths at Uni after gaining 11 A grades at GCSE and 4 A grades at A level (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry) and since then I`ve worked as both an Accountant and an Actuary.

I`m an intelligent guy with the ability to break things down to their simplest forms, but am also patient and a good listener with the ability to understand the way someone else thinks about a problem. I think its these qualities that combine to make me a natural tutor and time after time I`ve experienced that when people have a problem understanding something, its been me they`ve come to.

One of my recent reviews:

"My son was struggling with his AS level maths course having failed to keep up with the pace of new topics
in the Autumn term of 2012. Relatively late in the day before the exams in May 2013 we were fortunate
enough to get Kevin to help him and there was a complete transformation of his confidence and approach
to maths. Before Kevin's intervention my son had achieved U, D and E grades in various mock exams but
in test papers before the actual exams he was getting results right at the top of the grade spectrum. I cannot
recommend Kevin too highly for his technical expertise in the subject or for his organised and sympathetic
teaching approach which was essential in my son's case. Kevin brought my son order and confidence out of
confusion and despair"

Teaching Experience:

I`m experienced and happy to tutor at any level KS3, GCSE, AS and A-level, QTS Numeracy exam (in fact, adult learners in any field needing a maths/numeracy refresher).

I also tutor for business school and foundation year maths exams eg GMAT, NCUK IFY etc. (Please ask for rates for these exams).

Tutoring Approach:

Let me know what your aim is - whether it be to understand that topic/module you 'just cant get!', or to go through past papers, or to learn a whole course from start to finish, and between us we can agree the best approach for you, and prepare a plan of action to ensure you achieve your goals.

Personal Description:
I am a native German offering one to one tuition or tuition to small groups for German language. I have been living in UK for the past 20 years specialising in event management, marketing and tourism.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one tuition or group tuition for primary aged children, one to one tuition for G.C.S.E., one to one tuition for A-level and university level. I also offer tuition for adult learners covering a wide range of subjects from business German to casual traveler , from first basics of German language to supporting more advanced learners achieving their accreditation. Lessons are tailored to individual needs after a first meeting and adjusted accordingly to the process of the learner. Depending on individual needs lessons consist of German grammar, spelling, vocabulary, conversation, listening and translation. As a native German I am able to offer a very broad range of subjects.
In primary group tuition I work with visuals and spoken word, listening, singing, reading, play and role play. According to the children's age it is based on learning through play unless otherwise requested. Please inquire for group rates.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris , and I am a highly experienced tutor of Maths, English and 11+ entrance tuitions for selective schools. I teach Maths at all levels up to GSCE level, and English at all levels up to Key Stage 3 level.

I live in Devizes, Wiltshire.

I have been tutoring for 16 years, and have 34 written references from parents and I also have a Maths degree.

I have for much of those 16 years worked as a full-time tutor, and I use National Curriculum Resources for all my tuitions.

Teaching Experience:

During my 16 years as a tutor, I have taught students of all ages and abilities, and have literally taught 1000's of lessons- at times teaching as many as 30 hours of tuition in a week.

I have taught every type of student from those with Learning Disabilities to the Gifted & Talented.

I am constantly recommended by parents to other parents, and I have a proven track record of improving students' grades.
I also have resources and past papers , for 11+, SATS (English & Maths) and GSCE Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly person by nature , and I take this into my tuitions. I like to make my students feel at ease in the lessons , and that they have a tutor that they feel they can ask as many questions as they like.

I also believe in offering plenty of praise and encouragement to my students.

I follow the National Curriculum programme in my tutoring, to cover all aspects of the syllabus.

However, even if I have prepared a certain topic for a lesson, if the student then asks me to look over in a different topic, or wants me to help them with some school homework, then I am always flexible to do just that.

I also never move on to a new topic with a student, until I am happy that they have fully understood what I have been teaching.

My method of teaching is to teach a topic, and then set the student plenty of practice examples , to make sure they fully understand the topic.

Personal Description:
I have just recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in English Literature & Language. I am very passionate about literature and history outside of a teaching capacity. I have decided to begin tutoring since graduating as I would love to pass on my knowledge and teaching to students of all ability. I am also a mentor to students in my local community I have interests in football, quizzing, drama, and cinema.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students for over four years in London and Oxford. I initially began tutoring friends and family for GCSE History, English Language and English Literature. Soon I decided to take it further and began tutoring people in my local area. In my time as a GCSE tutor I have managed to push students from C grades towards B's and above.

I also tutor in AS/A Level English Literature and History. For AS/A Levels I regularly focus on exam technique and try to improve on essay structure.

Tutoring Approach:

When I arrived at Oxford I began tutoring students taking their A-Levels and my tutoring proved successful as many of my students went on to achieve very top marks in their exams. By focusing on bad exam technique and trying to eliminate common mistakes in essay writing it allowed me to greatly improve ability. Encouragement is something I have always found to be a worthy asset in tutoring as it empowers the tutee and provides the comfortable atmosphere needed for the student to excel. I aim to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that differs from the classroom so students can get to appreciate the texts and their various nuances without the pressures of a classroom.

It is a big satisfaction for me when my students obtain brilliant results.

Tutoring Approach:

I use to tailor my approach to tutoring following students' needs. I schedule with my students the lessons' program according to their aim and target.
I try to optimise as much as possibile each lesson, making sure that my students are doing the appropriate progressions.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate student from University of Bath major in Interpreting and Translating(Chinese/English) and I've got a bachelors degree on Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages from Beijing Language and Culture University. Teaching Mandarin and Maths are what I'm good at. I'm quite easygoing and very good with kids.

Teaching assistant at Beijing Language and Culture University - teaching adult students Mandarin and Chinese culture relating course.

Approach to tutoring depends on the level of my student and the purpose of learning Mandarin. For exam purpose I will be more focused on helping the student learn exam relating materials and help him/her improve through practicing.

Personal Description:
My name is Mary-Anne.

I am a graduate of English Literature from Cardiff University, having achieved a 1st class BAHons. I spend the majority of my time writing and reading, as they are my most loved hobbies. In the future, I hope to undertake a Creative Writing PhD, and continue tutoring privately as my primary occupation.

I have always loved working with children, and continue to do so on a voluntary basis at the local youth group.

Teaching Experience:

Years of private tutoring, both online and one-to-one, in English Literature - for primary, KS2, K23, GCSE and A-Level.

Several months experience working in a tuition centre, tutoring children between the ages of 4 and 15.

Tutoring Approach:

Above all, my teaching style is tailored and lively. I like to keep things interesting so that students not only go away with a higher grade than they would have otherwise achieved, but also a newfound enjoyment of the subject.

I have taught a range of children, between the ages of 4 and 16, with a variety of different needs. I have years of private tutoring experience under my belt, both online and one-to-one, as well as experience working in a tuition centre in the city.

Personal Description:
An experienced, intelligent, enthusiastic and focused teacher who is committed to safeguarding and promoting the education and well-being of students at all times. I am passionate about giving students the best and easier methods of tackling basic problems in Maths, Physics and Electronics, and enjoys mentoring students to achieve their career goals. I am able to establish a supportive relationship with not only students but also their parents with the aim of enhancing and reinforcing a student's independence and self-worth. I am someone who is fundamentally committed to good practise and giving back to the society through effective teaching and mentoring methods.

Teaching Experience:

Graduate Assistant, University of Nigeria, Nsukka (2016-Date):

As graduate assistant in the department of Electrical Engineering, University of Nigeria, I taught basic electrical/ electronic engineering modules to undergraduate students.

Part-Time Tutor (2008-2013, 2015-2016):

Taught secondary school students preparing for General Certificate Exam (Equivalent of GCSE), Physics, Mathematics, Electronics, and Statistics.
Also taught university students, mathematics and statistics.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and tackling new and unfamiliar problems. I do this by teaching them the basic concepts using analogies and real world examples. I do not teach nor encourage students to memorise things rather I encourage them to write what they know in their own words in order to boost their confidence and to evaluate their level of understanding.

While tutoring, I usually solve a lot of exam-style examples and pose questions repeatedly in order to evaluate and perfect the student's understanding of basic concepts. I do not bark on students when they fail questions rather I politely correct them in order not to dampen their morale.

I believe passionately in the huge benefit that comes with personal tutoring to students and I am always excited seeing my students graduate with high grades and achieve their full potential in life.

Personal Description:
Physics is (in my opinion) a fantastic subject, and one that is highly regarded in society, not to mention indispensable if a career in engineering or some of the sciences is to be pursued.

Before I decided to change career and become a teacher, I worked for a British sports car manufacturer as a design engineer, using many of the principles I now teach in my then, day to day work.

I graduated from Coventry University in 2000 with a BEng (Hons) in Automotive Engineering Design, before going on to read an MBA in Business Management.

After a number of years working in the automotive industry, I got involved in teaching through the Formula Schools initiative.

I graduated from The University of Nottingham in 2010 with a PGCE in Secondary Science (Physics).

This history of working in industry before going becoming a teacher/tutor allows me to bring in relevant examples of where the theory fits in with the real world. I feel that this is important and I find it helps to bring a subject to life for the student,

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a physics teacher in 2010 and have worked as a teacher or tutor since.

I now work full time as a physics tutor, working on a one to one basis with students across a spectrum of abilities at both G.C.S.E. and A level.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide a calm, friendly approach, taking care to find where precisely the student is having problems, then either tweak theories and knowledge in order to correct any misconceptions or start from the beginning with them, taking the time to fully support, explain and develop the student's knowledge and skills in that area, making sure that the foundations are laid to create a strong base for any future knowledge to be built upon. This is important in both G.C.S.E and A level as they are both built upon a spiral curriculum, whereby topics and previous knowledge are revisited and used time and time again throughout the course.

Often, the difference between a puzzled look and the "eureka" moment that all teachers strive for, is just one explanation or a slight tweak on the explanation of a theory away. Sometimes, the difference may be supporting the examples and calculation side, this support then giving the student the confidence in their knowledge and understanding.

In addition to providing subject content tuition, I also provide exam preparation and technique,, past paper practice, revision schedules, constant progress monitoring and ongoing progress evaluation..
