Personal Description:
I am an experienced primary school teacher and Headteacher with significant teaching expertise at KS1 and KS2. I am also a qualified SENCO and have vast experience in SEN. I am a Headteacher in an excellent local school and set high standards for all my pupils. I am able to offer tuition in English, Maths and Science at both key stages. I am based in South Woodford. I can provide references on request from past and present clients who have achieved and continue to achieve success in their studies at all levels. I enjoy seeing my pupils make rapid progress and achieving academic success.

Teaching Experience:

I specialise in Entrance Examinations at 7+ and 11+, SEN and tuition for pupils who lack confidence and skills and need support to improve. I have vast experience teaching within excellent local schools and I am currently a Headteacher in a large Junior School. I teach children on a 1-2-1 basis to ensure that they receive the additional input that they need in order to achieve. I specialise in assisting children who lack confidence in specific areas and I am able to assist these children in improving their skills levels within their own school. I can provide excellent references on request from many happy pupils and parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and understanding tutor with the ability to communicate effectively with both adults and children. My aim is to ensure that pupils develop additional skills and increased confidence in their studies. I make my lessons fun and enjoyable for pupils so that they are able to enjoy learning and are keen to attend my tutoring sessions. I keep parents updated on their children's progress on a regular basis and encourage children to share worries about specific subject areas so that we can explore them together.

Personal Description:
I am a mature professional, originally from Yorkshire. I hold a current enhanced CRB check and have spent most of my life working with children and young people. Most of my work has involved teaching pupils with special educational needs. At present I work part-time as a teacher in a hospital school with students 5-19yrs. I am highly qualified in teaching. In addition to a Bachelor of Education degree with honours, I hold an MA in the Psychology of Education, and diplomas in the teaching of reading (literacy and literature) and in Counselling. I also have a certificate in TEFL My work with children has not been restricted to teaching - I have worked as a Youth and Community worker, as a Counsellor and as a Child Protection Officer. My hobbies include drama, dance and choral singing.

Teaching Experience:

I trained as a teacher of infants but I have worked as a teacher of all ages and abilities. The majority of my teaching has involved pupils who experience a variety of special educational needs - social, emotional and behaviour difficulties, moderate learning difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, dyslexia, medical and mental health difficulties. I have also taught in secure accommodation. My teaching is effective - my work as a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator in a large primary school in South London received a very good Ofsted report because the pupils with special educational needs made good progress - better progress than pupils in the school who did not have special needs! I am also on the Upper Pay Scale for teachers who have proved to government that their teaching interventions make a difference to pupil attainment.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a great deal of experience as a teacher of individuals and small groups in school and many years experience of private tutoring. My success comes from teaching each person, adult or child as a unique individual. I am popular with my students because I endeavour to make learning fun whilst retaining high expectations of effort and success, being patient, firm but fair. My fee reflects my knowledge, skill and experience. I integrate my tutoring with the tutees school syllabus and approach, increasing motivation with encouragement, challenge and the introduction of new knowledge in carefully paced steps. I begin with a thorough assessment of a student's strengths and weaknesses at my base where I have assessment materials for all ages. My fee is payable for this session when clients can examine my CRB check, qualifications and we can discuss mutual availability (times) and location.

Personal Description:
I have a passion for the English language and its literature which is reflected in my work. I really enjoy tutoring, because I know the one-to-one learning situation gives students the attention and focus which they need to improve, and which they cannot get in school. I only work in West Yorkshire, up to 15 miles' drive from my home.

Teaching Experience:

I have 30 years' experience of teaching English to kids of varying backgrounds and abilities (11 to 18 up to A level) so I have built up an extensive bank of resources over the years, which I use to carefully prepare for lessons. I am also an experienced examiner for AQA, which offers valuable insights into exactly how to achieve high GCSE grades . I have been tutoring successfully for five years now, and my knowledge and expertise would be very useful to students aiming at high marks in GCSE and A level exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient, friendly and easy to get on with. I have always tried to make my lessons interesting, relevant and inter-active. I tailor my teaching to the pupil and know that praise and encouragement are the keys to confidence and progress. A good sense of humour is vital,too.
I have helped to improve the grades of many pupils, some of whom have achieved the highest grade at GCSE, and have coached younger ones through entrance exams. One student, whom I tutored for three years, progressed from a poor level 4 in year 8 to GCSE grade B, the minimum requirement for A levels in many good schools, while others have achieved the A* grades required for their chosen paths.
I have achieved high ratings from the parents of students I have tutored. A good tutor can make a difference with focused one-to-one attention, and I am a good, committed tutor.

Personal Description:
I have spent 8 years at university, completed two degrees (one of which with a Teacher-training profile) and various development courses, and have been meanwhile working to support myself financially. I have been employed as a paid English Language and Literature and ESOL Teacher and have done extensive voluntary community care of people from various cultures and backgrounds. I speak, read and write fluent English, Bulgarian and Russian and operate freely with Microsoft Packages and the Internet

My tutoring experience across two cultures consisted of learners of various ages and educational needs - from students of English as a Foreign Language (adults) to preparation for GCSE examinations (Secondary school age) and basic literacy skills for Primary school children. I have proved to be very efficient on a one-to-one basis or in small groups, always searching to find the individual approach to each student, seeking to meet their needs and interests. Some of my students successfully passed their GCSE exams, others moved up with one level in their acquisition of English. All of my primary or secondary school pupils noted progress within the area they struggled with and some moved up to 'top' groups in their respective school classes.

I am friendly and approachable and children quickly warm to me and feel they can trust me and share their problems with me. I respect each child's individual strengths. I provide for their individual needs. I find a personal approach to each child, as I recognise that their learning styles and interests differ. I have already been tutoring privately for 14 years (across two countries) and have only had positive comments from appreciative parents and students.

I enjoy tutoring adults as well. I have taught ESOL, Bulgarian and Russian to adult students.

Presently I am employed full-time as a Lecturer of ESOL to adults at Birmingham Metropolitan College but I continue to tutor privately. I have a son of 4 years, who is presently attending nursery in Rubery.

During my teaching, tutoring and voluntary community care duties I worked closely with people with various problems and needs. This has helped me develop excellent communication and problem solving skills, as well as openness and confidence. Meeting those people's different needs has also taught me to show flexibility and quickly and independently seek solutions to challenges even in unfamiliar circumstances. I successfully find an individual approach to relate to everyone. Both as a teacher and community carer I have been described as 'friendly, tolerant', 'a good communicator', and a person of punctuality, reliability and 'excellent professionalism'.

For the last 4 years I have mainly tutored clients, forwarded to me by the agency Personal Tutors but now I wish to extend my experience.

Teaching Experience:

During my other wide experience of teaching I have been exposed to various aspects of the profession. While teaching English at a Secondary College in Bulgaria I had the chance to teach English literature more extensively, which deepened my knowledge of it. I also taught English at the equivalent of an A-level in the UK, successfully preparing students for university examinations. My lessons have been described as 'interesting and inspirational'. Teaching basic Literacy, Speaking and Listening skills and Creative Writing to adults in the UK broadened my experience even more. During my various tutoring duties in Bulgaria I worked with children and young adults of various ages and educational needs, which has further enriched my teaching practice and increased my flexibility in target setting.

While employed by Harborne Hill School in Birmingham I taught English Key Stage 3 and 4 and was involved in the preparation of Year 10 for their GCSE exams. I am familiar with the British System of Secondary Education, as well as with the National Curriculum and the importance of teaching English across the curriculum. I contributed to creating schemes of work and various materials for the English department at Harborne Hill. I also widely used ICT in my lessons, as I am aware that it is very important for accelerating children's learning. All my groups had a regular weekly lesson in the ICT suite.

My lesson preparation at Harborne Hill School was described as 'exemplary' and 'outstanding', the contents as 'interesting and stimulating', and my knowledge of the subject as 'excellent'. I widely and confidently used my own initiative to prepare creative activities to suit the children's needs and appeal to their imagination (working a youth leader at St Agnes church provided me with ideas for interesting activities). I was successful in trouble-shooting and behaviour management. I was able to quickly establish personal rapport with the pupils and find an individual approach to each one. I successfully motivated them to work and reach their potential when they were reluctant to do so. I was responsible for creating individual educational plans for the SEN children and individually monitor their progress. My background interest and extensive reading in Child Psychology and Counselling helped me with this task.

Tutoring Approach:

First I negotiate the times and modes of tutoring with the parents of my potential pupil and agree on fees.
Then I organise a free initial meeting with the pupil and their parents, where I try to establish raport with the pupil. It is important, especially for children, to 'get a feel' of the new tutor and see if they can feel comfortable with her.
Then I try to access as much information as possible from the parents and the child about their progress at school and their attitude to school. If possible, I wish to see samples of the child's school work, or hear anything teachers have said/written about their progress.
During the first lesson I conduct an informal assessment of the pupil's skills - give them a piece of text to read, or free writing or short composition, or a couple of Maths problems to solve. When I get a clear picture of where my pupil stands with a certain skill, I create a short-term plan for work with them. I normally bring materials with me and do not ask parents to buy additional materials. If the parent wishes me to follow a certain help-book, I am happy to oblige.
I update parents regularly of their child's progress - I try to do it after every lesson. I normally leave homework, designed to consolidate the material covered in the lesson, or develop their skills further. I wish parents to be involved as much as possible with helping or monitoring the completion of the homework.
I try to show my pupils as much respect as possible and affirm them as individuals. I acknowledge their birthdays, Christmas, or other family celebrations.
The parents can terminate the service at any time, with only one week notice.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about Education and helping others achieve their educational goals. I have recently completed an MA in Sociology at the University of Essex but want to build upon my previous Teaching experience.
I have worked in a variety of different Educational settings including Secondary Schools( Supply Teacher) , Further Educational Colleges, Sixth Form Colleges, Private Language Schools and Summer Schools. Since starting my Teaching career in 2007 I have taught Students not only from a wide range of ages and socio-economic backgrounds but also from a very wide range of nationalities. As well as the UK this has included Brazil, France, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova,Kazakhstan, Italy, China, Taiwan, Belarus, India, Iran, Iraq and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide range of Teaching experience with a very diverse range of students. Firstly I have taught Sociology at a number of different Sixth Form and Further Education colleges including St Francis Xavier Sixth Form College(PGCE Placement) Cambridge Regional College, College of North West London and Long Road Sixth Form College.
As well as Teaching A-Level Sociology(AQA) I have experience of Teaching GCSE Sociology (AQA), Access to HE Social Sciences and Sociology to International Students from Norway as part of the Programme for Norwegian Sixth Form Students run by Cambridge Regional College. Therefore I am happy to offer Tuition to any students studying Sociology not just A-Level students.
I also have experience Teaching History to International students as a Summer Study Teacher for MW Summer School. This role involved designing ,planning and successfully Teaching a four week course covering the whole breath of British History from Ancient times to the Present day, for students who either have a place at a British Boarding School or are considering Secondary and/or Higher Education in the UK.
In addition to this I have experience Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Russia whilst completing the Language Link Teacher Internship from 2007 to 2008 as well as with Ardmore Language School as a Summer School TEFL Teacher .More recently I have worked as TEFL Summer Camp Teacher with Lingue Senza Frontiere(Language without borders) in Italy. I have experience of Teaching all levels from Elementary to Advanced as well as all ages from young children to mature adult professionals. I have recently returned from working as an English teacher in Brazil teaching children,teenagers and adult business professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to Tutoring is driven by the needs and wishes of the client. However I will use a wide range of resources including worksheets, textbooks and where possible or appropriate Interactive web resources such as videos,powerpoints and quizzes.

Personal Description:
I'm an enthusiastic and hardworking individual with extensive academic and teaching experience. I have studied for up to eight years at university, mainly in politics and sociology, and have an excellent academic record. I was awarded a PhD scholarship at the University of Westminster in 2011 and am in the fourth year of my studies. Prior to that, I was awarded a scholarship to study for an MA in political philosophy at York University, which I completed in September 2009. And prior to that, I studied politics and sociology at Leeds University and gained a prize for the highest mark in my graduate year, out of a pool of over 200 students.

Besides my academic work, I have worked for a number of think-tanks as a researcher on a variety of subjects, from economics to geopolitics. Working for think-tanks in and around Westminster provided me with a good understanding of public policy making and advocacy.

I also have a lot of experience of voluntary and charity work and enjoy a range of hobbies, including the guitar and a number of sports. I enjoy travelling and have embarked on a number of trips. in 2006 I studied for a year at the Middle East Technical University as part of an Erasmus programme. The experience of living and studying in a different country for such a long period of time was as fascinating as it was intellectually stimulating. Before going to University, I also took a gap year and embarked on a six-month journey throughout Latin America, traveling largely by land from Argentina to Mexico. During the trip I lived with a family and taught English at a school in Bolivia. The experience was exhilarating: it opened my horizons, gave me a strong sense of independence and fuelled a desire of mine to further explore the world.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of teaching and this spring received a university award for teaching excellence, voted by the students themselves. Over the past three years I have worked as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Westminster on the first year module "Introduction to Political Theory" and the second year module "Political Research Methods". The work involves planning lessons and tailoring them to the needs of my students, teaching and facilitating debate in class and providing students with advice regarding their university work. I also have extensive experience of marking assessments and dissertations which stands me in good stead to give advice to university students.

Additionally, I have a TEFL qualification and before going to university I taught English for three months in Bolivia. I've since taught English in Israel and the Palestine. Furthermore, I worked as a guitar teacher for a number of years, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This involved structuring weekly lessons and working with people on a one-to-one basis. I also have vast experience of giving presentations, lectures and seminars both at university and in the workplace.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to make the tutee as relaxed as possible and to tailor lessons to their interests and needs. Well structured and planned, the lessons proceed logically and the contents are explained as clearly and concisely as possible. Discussion and debate are actively sought. I also provide advice on generic academic skills such as researching, crafting an essay and delivering presentations.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated Teaching Professional, with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults., interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals, as well as communicating inside the family.

My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.

I tend to focus in improving spoken fluency and listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition as part of the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.

I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results of good communication between both parties and learner assessment throughout the course.

Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and supporting the students in improving their skills.

I can ensure fast and excellent results.

Personal Description:
I am an organised, sociable and confident individual with a can-do attitude, I have discovered that I possess skills and attributes which are transferable within many different job roles both related and unrelated to my education. These include: Reaching targets (personal and professional). Writing memos, notes and feedback, record keeping, communication with office, school faculties, parents and carers. I speak several languages, including Hindi, Gujarati French and Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

Having working for education for 15+ years and covered various areas from: special need, controlling classes, providing feedback for absent teacher, observing health and safety of all involved people. I attend meetings, first Aid, in house and external training days. Report abnormalities, Feed back etc.
I have worked for interpreting services in a various sectors: Independent tribunal, social services, School and OAP organisation. I handle invoices to and from.
I have worked for weekend school for Children, Youth and Family University, where I supported family and children of all ages and back ground. Bought resources, issued invoices, planned lessons and delivered according to dead line.
I get on well with all ages and back ground. I work on my own and as a part of a team. I speak several languages and translate the too , for example, Hindi Gujarati, Urdu, Punjabi.

Tutoring Approach:

Students and parents both want academic success - high grades and the pride that comes with achievement. I believe any student, regardless of ability, can become a high achiever. I know from years of experience that students under perform because they have not learned the right approach or pathway to success.

Any school has the same essential components: attendance, class participation, attentiveness, homework and testing. Most teachers give students points for each category; however, simply showing up on a regular basis and "doing" homework will not guarantee a good grade. The difference between average performance (a "C" student) and high performance (an "A" student) turns on what a student does outside of class.

While no two students learn exactly alike in exactly the same manner, all students must struggle with independent learning. Where do I do my homework? When do I do my homework? How do I do my homework? Am I well organized? If not, how can I become better organized? Do I know how to study for quizzes and tests? If not, how can I develop better study skills? Students who discover the answers to these questions become high achievers.

help students become stronger independent learners by developing a customized approach to their needs, cognition and retention. Students can spend hours working very hard but working inefficiently to the point their effort fails to translate into results. I create personalized organizational plans so that students learn how to maximize time, work efficiently and retain key information not just for the short term but for the long term.

Personal Description:
I'm twenty years of age and I will begin my third year reading English at the University of Cambridge early in October. I'm enthusiastic about tutoring because I've experienced first hand the potential to inspire young people to success through encouragement and the fostering of ability; my own English teacher was the reason that I became interested in English literature and eventually went on to study it at Cambridge. But more than this I feel that the subjects I have a knowledge of (as listed below) have made very positive impressions upon my personality, being deeply rooted in culture, ethics, responsibility and rights. I really believe in my subjects and I want to pass that passion on to young people.

To dispel any concern about my background, I am from a low-income, single-parent household. My two years at Cambridge has introduced me to very high level academia and to peers who had a better education (at least on paper) than I did. My experiences of comprehensive school education and world-class university have shaped me into a person who is able to engage with anyone from any background, and I really believe in helping people from Stoke-on-Trent and the Midlands more generally to reach upper-level institutions, in which they are vastly under-represented.

Teaching Experience:

I have very little teaching experience and I will in no way disguise that from you. My only formal role as a tutor was during high school and some of VI form, in which I tutored 11-15 year old children in reading once per week.

I would like to take this opportunity to stress that I have no formal qualifications in teaching and that I will only be available until early October; my sessions would be, in this case, catered toward short-term goals which could be achieved before this time.

Tutoring Approach:

Having no previous experience, my approach would be somewhat experimental, immersive and very much catered to the individual involved.

My view, from experience, is that instilling enthusiasm in the tutee is of paramount importance. Learning by rote or by simply forcing information into someone's head does not tend to engage their creative energies in the writing of an essay, for example. As such, I would hope to take up an approach which is both expansive and thorough in its appreciation of the material at hand; but also effectively explore the curriculum and mark-schemes for the examination(s) in order to achieve effective deployment of the material.

Some samples of how I might teach runs as follows:

-- English --

[Assuming we are working with, say, Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men]

The main bulk of teaching would involve and in-depth exploration of:

- The novel's historical and cultural significance;
- Possible film productions, and how the difference in media has affected reception and portrayal of the story;
- Themes running within the texture of the language: their metaphorical and symbolic significance;
- Reading aloud extracts of the novel to feel the characters and their dialogue rather than confining them to silent reading;
- Creative representations of the plot, its characters and the importance of the work more generally.

In teaching these elements the mark-scheme will have largely been fulfilled from a material perspective. Overlooked elements of the mark-scheme and notes from examiners reports can often unlock the higher grade boundaries for students who are able but simply do not know that they have to include these elements in an essay. These may include:

- A thoughtful, relevant personal response to the work;
- Use of specific types of language, punctuation and grammar according to the level of the examination;
- Producing 'flair' in essay writing;
- Structuring a well-written essay;
- Spelling, vocabulary;
- A focussed response.

These are all requirements which can be trained in a tutee, and are relatively easy to attain through practice and with the right kind of material to deploy. What I propose is holistic and engaging, as well as being designed with a view to developing written technique to access the higher areas of the mark scheme.




This example is largely catered toward GCSE tutoring for English Literature; but I am flexible in the range of subjects that I have knowledge of and in the level of teaching which is require according to the ability of the tutee. My only request is that, should you be interested in having me provide tutoring services, you allow me some time and plenty of information to work with in order to get to know the student and his/her capabilities. I am a fast reader and a quick learner, so most subjects within my remit should be applicable.

I am an experienced ESL tutor having spent time teaching all levels and abilities. I am friendly, easy to work with and able to tailor my lessons to suit any needs. Beyond ESL I have a history of working with vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals throughout Sheffield.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in Ukraine, Spain and summer schools in London and have been teaching for approximately three years. I graduated with the CELTA certificate from Sheffield University.

Tutoring Approach:

I am warm, friendly and informal. I base my teaching on the premise that for effective learning to take place, the environment must be one in which the student feels relaxed and not worried about making mistakes, allowing questions to asked freely and to encourage them to think for themselves.
