Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher with Cambridge MA, PGCE & DELTA, with 30 years' experience of teaching in a variety of contexts including general secondary school English and Drama, GCSE, A Level, IB, and tuition at university and postgraduate level, including assistance with theses and similar.
I have considerable experience of TEFL/TOEFL and a successful record in teaching Cambridge FCE, CPE, etc as well as Business English classes for non-native professionals.
I recently returned to the UK from Spain for family reasons and I am new to the York area. I'm taking time out for a while to write that elusive million-seller or sitcom! Meanwhile I am a member of SfEP and work part time as a professional proofreader and copy editor. I am very happy to help groups or individuals with their academic needs.

Teaching Experience:

15 years in all key stages of secondary school education in England.
5 years Adult Education, TEFL and private tuition in the UK.
10 years teaching a British curriculum in an international secondary school in Spain at all key stages incl. GCSE, A Level and IB.
Group and individual EFL classes for children and adults, including Business English for professionals and TOEFL in an American-affiliated college.
I have an excellent record of success in preparing students for English and Drama exams - GCSE, A Level, International Baccalaureat and beyond - as well as for Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency in English.
Amongst other notables, I was employed as personal tutor to the actress Rebecca Hall as a child and also to one of Tony Blair's sons!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a supportive approach and a friendly relationship, but without forgetting it's work: you're paying me because I can improve your (or your children's) future prospects.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in Journalism and English and a Certificate in Education. I am able to tutor GCSE English Language GCSE English Literature, ESOL English Literature, GCSE Geography, GCSE Psychology and Media Studies to A level. I have given tuition to individuals and small groups of students at undergraduate level and offer friendly, relaxed lessons individually, or in groups up to five people, tailored exactly to what the pupil requires

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of one to one tutoring with both school and college students and adults, plus larger group teaching. I have been doing private tuition in my own home for four years now and its better for students to come to me as its a pressure free environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to teach from my home:
My home is quiet and fairly minimalistic. Lessons are held in my offce and I have a computer and Ipad that students can use.

I use the first meeting to talk about any difficulties in learning the subject in a formal educational setting and discuss any specific learning difficulties you may have. We can chat about strategies to help you learn more effectively and I will work with you at a pace that suits you. I will also ask the student to complete a learning styles questionnaire.


To the best of my ability I try to make subjects interesting to young people and re-engage them. I also encourage students to bring along any work they may be struggling with so I can go through it with them. I can help you get to where you need to be. Please only contact me and purchase my details if you are genuinely interested in my services. No time wasters please. Please note if you require me to travel to you there will be a charge.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in English Literature from the University of East Anglia where I also studied Creative Writing.

I am a freelance writer, contributing articles on literature for The Guardian, have a fortnightly series on Guardian On-Line, and regularly review books for Time Out.

I am currently writing my debut novel.

Teaching Experience:

Informal coaching of friends' children. This something I have greatly enjoyed and has proved to be a great success. I am now keen to develop this on a more professional basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe literature is best taught with enthusiasm, thereby making it accessable and less intimidating. Once a basic understanding of the work has been achieved it is easier to explore the more complex themes such as character, imagery, dramatic arc, etc.

Personal Description:
I am currently in my final year at university studying Creative Writing and English Literature. I'm aware that English and History are complex and intriguing subjects but I firmly believe that a thorough understanding and practise of techniques will enable to provide you with a firm base for any student to succeed.
I am keen, conscientious, hardworking and reliable person. I am good timekeeper and enjoy meeting people. I am able to get on with a variety of people. I would like the valuable opportunity to be able to work within an education orientated environment where I can demonstrate and develop my skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have completed a Literacy Leadership Award and I was assessed on my ability to plan and prepare a literacy activity. I had to show communication and motivational skills through delivering literacy across the curriculum. Having observed teachers, I was able to learn interesting techniques that are used to teach Key stage 3 and 4 students. From this experience, I was taught how to plan and structure a lesson i.e. the starter, an introduction, an interactive main activity and the plenary; how to use verbal and non-verbal communication successfully .These rewarding experiences encouraged me to become an English teacher in the future. I have also worked closely with my peers on A Level courses such as English and History by delivering revision sessions and presenting my ideas on literary texts, articles and academic research.
I have been tutoring privately for over two years and currently have eighteen students.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tuition includes a variety of techniques and strategies in order to guide and motivate the learner. I will set personalised targets with my students and their parents in order to achieve the desired results. I also intend to provide you with a personalized programme that is best suited to your individual needs. I'm very enthusiastic and try to make learning a fun experience, using different ways of learning. Also, price can be negotiated.
"She's a good listener. She tries to make people understand something in a way that makes you feel comfortable. She involved everyone in the discussion even the quiet ones and always tries to find new ways of explaining things. Revision sessions were really useful and I think the main reason was because she just loves helping other people whether it is people younger or the same age. Everyone went home feeling slightly more confident about the exam including me. She makes sure that everybody understands even if it has to be explained more than once." (Aarti, 18, student)
"Charnjit has a way of making the impossible- possible. She is patient with her students and will try her hardest to make people understand. She has a way of teaching which involves a lot of group work and a one-one session where she will answer any questions from the stupidest to the smartest. After having few sessions with her I went into my exam confidently. Most importantly, she never gives up on anyone." (Rahwa, student)
"Charnjit's teaching style is unique and possesses many qualities. She is patient and constantly checks for understanding in order to go over things if the topic is not understood straight away. She uses a variety of techniques such as group brain storming in order to get the class involved which is very effective. During our group revision sessions she used this technique which worked well as it got everybody thinking, talking and interacting which was useful when remembering theorists and certain dates. She also categorised the theorists into groups based on their research which was also helpful for revision as it broke down the amount of theorists into smaller groups which were easier to remember. In addition, Charnjit is very good at keeping the class' attention which is very important as a teacher." (Stefanie Mee, student)

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old female graduate from the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow. I have a joint Honours degree in French and Italian (language and studies) for which I gained a 2:1. I also have a Masters in Marketing which I also obtained from the University of Strathclyde. I am currently working as the Marketing Co-ordinator for a Plant & Tool Hire company based in Glasgow, where I am responsible for the Marketing for the whole business, including Head Office and our 59 depots throughout the UK. I spent a year abroad in Lyon, France, during my fourth year of university, where I worked as an English Language Assistant in two high schools. I am extremely patient and understanding and have a lot of experience tutoring both young children and teenagers, especially in French and Italian. I am passionate about working with and helping others and find it to be a most rewarding experience and I would love to pass on my knowledge and skills, in my specialist subjects, in order to help develop the skills of the tutees I will be working with. I am a very driven, confident and enthusiastic individual and I give 100% to everything I am involved with and I am passionate about achieving results and helping others to do so also.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently undertaking the PGDE in Education to teach French & Italian in secondary schools and have acquired a great amount of experience throughout my school placements and have gained great confidence in teaching the new National 4 and 5 qualifications. During my fourth year of University, I worked in two high schools in Lyon, France as an English language assistant, teaching children, teenagers and young adults, from the age of nine to twenty three. I was responsible for helping them with all aspects of the language, and developing their reading, writing, listening and verbal skills by preparing and working on a number of different activities. I also taught them about British culture, history and lifestyles so as to help develop their knowledge of Britain, particularly Scotland, in general. I ensured that I worked differently with different individuals, depending on their style of learning and I took a different approach accordingly. I aimed to make my style of teaching both informative and fun so that they enjoyed learning and I believe this is something I am always successful in as many tutees I have worked with have commented on my positive and helpful way of teaching.

In my final year of high school I was involved in the 'Peer Education' programme whereby I went into five different French and Italian classes and helped those who were experiencing difficulties with the subjects. I helped particularly with grammar issues as these seemed to pose the most problems for pupils and I also helped them prepare for upcoming speaking and writing tests. I also helped pupils to understand easier ways of making the most of their French or Italian dictionary and taught them creative and simple of ways of tackling listening and reading tests. Moreover, I worked on a one to one basis with a Higher grade pupil who was experiencing problems with French and we explored different ways of making difficult areas that much easier. I was also part of the 'Paired Reading' programme where I worked with pupils aged eleven to fifteen who experienced reading difficulties. I met with three pupils for one hour each week, on an individual basis, and we would work on techniques for improving their reading ability and they would read to me. These two programmes were very gratifying, especially when I witnessed a pupil's confidence grow as their reading skills improved.

I have also tutored two family friends, both in French and Italian, with a great focus on exam preparation and the skills that they needed to do well on class tests. I also help my niece and nephew with their French, focusing greatly on the areas they find the most difficult.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a different approach to my tutoring depending on the individual I am working with. On my first session with my tutee I will find out the areas that they are experiencing the most difficulty in, and what their strengths and weaknesses are, as this will help me to develop an effective and helpful way of teaching. I prepare various worksheets, practice tests and activities which are interactive and will allow for valuable learning. I will ask the tutee what their preferred way of learning is and look at ways in which they successfully learn in other subjects and try to incorporate this in to my way of teaching. I encourage tutees to ask questions wherever necessary and to state if they wish me to try a different approach. I believe communication is the key to successful learning and I pride myself on my friendly and approachable nature and my ability to achieve results in my tuition. On the whole, I am aware that my way of teaching has to be of benefit to the tutee so I will tailor my approach to suit their wants and needs.

Personal Description:
I am an English Literature and Language graduate based in central Inverness who has experience in working with children, teenagers and international students. I love English and having studied both literature and language for 4 years and tutored for 3 years, I am keen to share my creative enthusiasm with those who may be less convinced!

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored over 40 students at Standard Grade, National 4/5, Intermediate and Higher levels over the past two years, with positive results and progress made by all. I am friendly and patient and feel confident working with any age group, especially teenagers. IHaving previously worked as a piano tutor with an autistic pupil, I am especially sensitive to those with additional support needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer lessons which will be both structured and relaxed, aiming to motivate and inspire confidence in students and work through a series of progressive targets. My hope as a tutor is for my students to feel that English is no longer a subject they dread, but instead one which they learn to enjoy and understand. I am also able to provide online support in between lessons if necessary, especially in the lead up to prelims and exams. Please note my hourly fee includes preparation time and tailor-made worksheets for each individual student. Lesson focus will include basic skills (spelling, grammar etc.) as well as analytical and written skills, folio work, exam techniques and working through past papers. I have an up-to-date Enhanced CRB Disclosure and am willing to provide references upon request.

Personal Description:
I am currently reading Classics at the University of Liverpool and live in West Kirby. My tutoring experience has been built upon earlier experience of classroom and individual teaching in Schools (both Primary and Secondary), which I have now returned to alongside tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

September 2013 to present: teaching a GCSE Classical Greek course.
July 2013 to present: tutoring English, Maths and Latin.
September 2011 to June 2012: taught an introductory Latin Course at a local Primary School.
September 2010 to July 2012: taught an introductory Classical Greek course & mentored several students in Latin.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths: As teaching in schools is very often rushed and group-focused, many students are left with gaps in their knowledge, so by covering the theory behind certain methods and explaining problems in a simple way, I try to remedy this. 'Practice makes perfect' is especially true for this subject and so, for the GCSE student, I spend a large part of the lesson focusing on past papers and put the theory to practice.

English: As well as ensuring that the student knows the set poetry & prose for their exam, I like to introduce reading of something new at the start of each lesson, in preparation for the unseen section of the exam. I believe this is also important, as it helps the student to appreciate areas of the literary canon outside of their exam, and at the same time to develop a 'feel' for the discussion of noteworthy elements in a text. In terms of English Language, points of rhetoric and oratory are discussed and practised in exercises of composing speeches, articles, etc. as will be found in their exam. For the advanced student, intertextual links between their set texts are discussed and a lot of time is spent in oral essay-practice.

Latin & Greek: I have found that the best way of getting to grips with the language is through reading, so I let the student read the sentence out in Latin/Greek, then systematically work through, picking out the words in the order that they should be translated. By following this method, it allows for the practical discussion of grammatical constructions and vocabulary, which are much more rapidly absorbed through reading instead of learning tables of words. The aim of this method is for students to be able to read a text at the required level with reasonable fluency and to develop their confidence in translating unfamiliar words and phrases.

Personal Description:
•Result-oriented professional having a proven track-record in leading change and in developing creative implementation strategies
•Dedicated, resourceful and innovative Teacher with more than 3 yrs of teaching experience at University level with renowned Educational institutions with a keen interest in Career Development.
•Proven expertise in managing educational programme with solutions oriented progressive experience in teaching and Training, educational management focusing on curriculum design, training content and training methodologies.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a Lecturer in Engineering Institute teaching relevant subjects for 3 years .

I have been tutoring in the UK for 1.5 years now & during this time have carved a niche among my students for being approachable & having a sound understanding of the subjects & helping them in all possible ways.I am a very patient & child friendly person.
As a Tutor I have helped students from Primary to GCSE level with Maths & Science preparing for a competitive exam & have made permanent & good relations with my clients.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring Approach
I feel that having a good foundation to any subject is the way to go thus this would usually where I begin. If a student has a good understanding of the basics in any subject, more complicated details will seem much easier; like building blocks. After this, a focus on the weaker areas would then be applied to reinforce the student's understanding.

To begin, I start with revision techniques, worksheets and make new, very detailed, class/revision notes with my students. After developing a solid understanding, I begin with exam questions . Every lesson I give them homework. Essentially, what I offer are school lessons that are more detailed and focused than what they receive in school. Through these methods, I am able to thoroughly assess a student's abilities, increase them and hopefully up their grades.
My innovative pedagogies and teaching style and teacher friendly approach makes the concepts easy and passion and love for teaching
has made me popular among my students

Personal Description:
I am currently doing my MA having just finished my Biomedical Sciences degree at King's College London. I was my highschool Valedictorian and that alone highlighted to me the key to excellent grades was steady work and persistence more than sheer intelligence.

*I only tutor girls

Teaching Experience:

I have mentored first year undergraduates for two years now. I have also volunteered at the Sharjah Disability Centre and the Snowflake school for Autism and observed the ABA/VB aproach to teaching. I've also regularly tutored a student through their AS and A-level years.

While it depends on the student's learning methods, I usually take the syllabus topic by topic with questions at the end of each lesson to reinforce and discover weak points where more time needs to be spent.

I can also help students with their applications to universities and more specifically with their personal statements.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage my students to show me what they think of a theory or question and then nudge them in the correct direction. I am a strong believer in understanding the underlying principles and not just blindly learning the mechanisms. Multiple group projects and the Kings Leadership award in honing teamwork and communications have allowed me to finetune different methods of communicating information as well as patience.

Personal Description:
I studied Modern Languages (French and German) at Magdalen College, Oxford and went on to train as an actor at Central School of Speech and Drama. I can offer classes in beginners conversation for French and German as well as coaching for GCSE and A-level. In addition, I can help students create revision timetables to improve study skills and can offer drama tuition for drama school applicants or to improve confidence and general presentation skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for French, German and English with Home Tutors for the past 7 years and have had an excellent success rate with students achieving their desired grades at GCSE and A-level. I also co-wrote and ran the German Through Music and Drama course at Watford Grammar School for Year 10 Gifted and Talented students.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible and am reliable, punctual and well-organised. In the first lesson, I ask the tutees and parents exactly what they are hoping to gain from private tuition so that we can work together towards achieving those goals. It's also useful to get hold of a copy of the syllabus and/or class textbooks that the tutee is working from in school so that we can remain on target, tackle homework together and also add supplementary activities that reinforce their course work.

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge University, fully-qualified language teacher After graduating I spent time in Italy working as an English teacher before settling again in the UK.
Teaching languages for me is not just a profession but also a passion. Apart from languages my main pastimes are travelling, cookery, wine and history.
As well as teaching in school, I run my own language training business.

Teaching Experience:

I have a varied and eclectic teaching experience having started out as an EFL teacher before gaining my P.G.C.E. I hold Qualified Teacher Status and have previously taught Modern Foreign Languages at Secondary School.
In addition, I have taught Adult Education Language Courses for East Riding Council.
Currently I am also teaching French classes in local primary schools.
I have also continued to teach EFL and have taught students from all over the world from Russia to Japan.
I also run regular courses in French, Spanish and Italian. In addition, I run small literacy support groups to help KS2 children improve their reading, spelling and punctuation.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor my approach is patient and flexible. The learner is at the heart of what I do and my aim is for all students to make rapid progress but also to enjoy their learning. As a result I enjoy planning varied and engaging lessons which are tailor-made for my students. I strongly believe that one-to-one and small group tuition can deliver real results for all types of learners due to the focus on individual learning needs and styles.

Personal Description:
I am a third year graduate from the University of Leeds. I will be living in Mersea Island for a period of time and looking to tutor children to help them gain confidence and skills from my knowledge of education.
I am very creative and forward thinking. I like to make things fun and make the subject enjoyable.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught non academic skills such as sailing and singing. I have also taught school subjects: drama, arts and crafts, and cooking to children from the ages of five to sixteen. Voluntary work has taken place in the UK at Rainbows, a drama club. Last summer I worked at a children's summer camp in the USA, where I taught sailing and lived with fourteen year old girls for 2 months.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the main aspect a child will gain from personal tutoring is confidence. One to one help also helps finding areas that the student is struggling with the most. They will learn to study in a more relaxed environment than a classroom, making homework an easier task.

Personal Description:
I am a multilingual ex-City consultant with degrees in Physics and Environmental Economics.
I tutor Maths, Physics, Science and languages (French, German, Spanish, Latin). I am a very patient tutor who understands very well the challenges of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have one-to-one experience in tutoring Maths, Physics, French and Latin. Most of my experience is from my engagement with a south London initiative called GCSE success.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient tutor who values getting the 'basics right' before building on that knowledge. I am very flexible and adaptable depending on the pupil's aptitude and interest in the subject. I tend to use visual aids for Maths and Physics tutoring with very positive results. For languages I also use teaching and memory methods in order to help the pupil progress rapidly with visible results.
