Personal Description:
Hi,

I'm a Cambridge graduate and an experienced private tutor. I give students the confidence to excel at exams, produce excellent essays, and make original arguments by teaching them to join the dots, dig deeper, and get curious about the big ideas.

I make learning relevant and engaging, always exploring the implications of the course in the context of today's world. I understand the pressures my students are facing and what it takes to stand out in this competitive academic environment, and all my lessons are designed to help students get away from prescriptive rote-learning, and instead develop rigorous analytical skills and independent perspectives.

I bring an unusual blend of academic and commercial experience; my parallel career as a writer and brand consultant for the last four years means I am able to draw links between academia and real-world insights, creating a fresh approach which is often very valuable for students looking for a more unusual route into learning.

As a trained interviewer for Oxbridge interviews, I can also offer students extremely rigorous Oxbridge interview preparation.

Teaching Experience:

I've been tutoring since secondary school, when my peers would come to me for help with their work and for accessible explanations of the more complex ideas we were looking at. I've tutored students of all ages, requirements and capabilities. In the last four years I've gained over 1,500 hours of tutoring experience. I'm now tutoring full time.

I am particularly experienced in:

- Students competing for an Oxbridge offer.
- Students who need that special something to stand out at interview.
- Students struggling with severe self-esteem and confidence issues.
- Students who struggle to get their ideas down on paper and need some fail-safe techniques for constructing essays and arguments under pressure.

I have experience with learning difficulties, especially dyslexia, which I have helped my brother to cope with through his studies for the last few years. To me, it just means having to find another way to approach the information and make it accessible.

Though I'm not formally qualified as TEFL teacher, I've had several foreign students who needed to learn both formal and conversational English from a very basic level of understanding.

I also teach many Law, Business, Sociology, Psychology, and Education Studies students at Undergraduate level, and I frequently work with professionals who have writing requirements, including Social Workers, Lawyers, PR and Marketing professionals and Psychologists.

A couple of recent students include:
Imogen, 22: 3rd year English student at Edinburgh university. We've been working together for the last two years to help her overcome her panic attacks/anxiety over exams, and rebuild her confidence by improving her critical reading and essay technique, and reconnect her with her love of literature. After working together for 12 months, she was able to sit her 2nd year exams and is now completing her final year.

'Bex is a very talented teacher - kind, understanding, highly skilled with supportive structured learning. My panic attacks/anxiety meant I was failing my degree and unable to sit exams, struggling to talk in tutorials & develop analytical skills. Now I can enjoy studying & I was able to sit my exams. Bex is equally excellent at the broader themes & the close technical analysis of your writing, critiquing your work line by line, which I've never benefited from before.
I strongly recommend her.'
- Imogen, 22

Helen, 18: Helen needed to raise her English A-Level grade from a predicted C to an A to fulfil her dream of studying at Oxford. She was sitting the challenging Cambridge English paper, which requires a much more rigorous style of working; we worked together intensively to develop her coursework, dramatically strengthen her writing skills, and study her texts from interesting new perspectives to create strong and original arguments. After our work together, she achieved an A and won her place at Oxford.

'With English, it's easy to feel lost without focused attention on your essay technique. With Bex, it was so easy to see where I was going wrong. We read through set texts and 'unseens' together in depth, and discussed their history/context to improve my understanding. Our discussions helped me re-focus my thoughts so I could easily organise complex ideas and form new ones.'
- Helen, 17

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on two things: helping students cut to the heart of complex arguments and make them their own - and rediscovering the pleasure of learning.

I believe that everyone can understand an idea once it's made accessible to them - there's always a way, you've just got to find out what's right for each student. I always spend time to getting to know my students and understanding what makes them tick so we can work in the best possible way for them. The best results come when good exam technique is combined with a thorough understanding of the subject - I make sure that we spend time on both. Most of the time students have never had intensive help with their essay technique; I go through essays with students line by line so that they have absolute clarity on how they can improve. Variety is important - discussion is a great way to understand themes and build their arguments - it's about getting students interested in what they're studying again by putting them back in touch with the bigger picture - why it's important, what's fascinating about it, how it's still relevant today -, and then giving them the tools and the confidence to build strong answers, underpinned by writing exercises, essay/planning practice, and more visual aids like mind-mapping. Together, all these things should create a solid base of knowledge, good results and confident students.

I offer face to face tutoring, language skills, Skype sessions, and editing/help with any essay or piece of extended written work, either face to face or via email.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about the subjects I tutor in and education in general. Education forms the foundation for freeing us from bigotry and ignorance, makes us better people and permits us to live richer, better lives. Knowledge is liberating and my subjects especially open many doors. They are not easy and require a willingness to work hard, but I strongly believe that anyone can get to grips with them if given the correct guidance. Most often the problem is not the student but a poor teacher, unresolved conceptual difficulties or lack of motivation. I want to fix these issues for you.

I used to work as a research physicist at Cambridge University in an indefinable capacity. I had several years of poor physical health (fit and healthy now) that made funding an issue, so I was an unofficial PhD student researching quantum computing and foundational issues in physics.

I have always have had a dual interest in the arts and philosophy, literature in particular. I've written a novel and several full length plays as well as directing at the student theatre in Cambridge and making short films. I recently decided to form my own film production company and work full time as a writer and director for films and plays. Our first short film is in production and we are applying for funding for a feature.

I'd say my approach to education is rigorous, highly intellectual and what one might term renaissance in approach. I'm interested in all aspects of education, and how our disparate academic disciplines connect which is somewhat antithetical to the modern approach to education but just the sort of thing one needs to get into Oxbridge and the like.

Why is tutoring important to me? Firstly, I feel it is my responsibility to pass on the knowledge and skills I have attained; secondly, I find it satisfying to help others learn and achieve what they did not think possible, regardless of their ability; and finally, I think one of the best ways to assess your own understanding of a subject is to teach it; we learn the most about our areas of expertise when we try convey their concepts and methods to an audience.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many (over 100) students privately over the past six years, improving their results in all cases where the students have followed my advice and worked hard

I have experience of teaching children as young as five through to graduates and am happy to work one to one, in small groups or in a classroom.

I also help set up and run and small charity to improve the educational standards of recent immigrants in inner city London where I taught all ages of students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and I persevere. I am happy to tutor people across all ranges of ability but i expect you to work hard and follow my advice.

My tutoring includes:

- free initial consultation with needs assessment and lesson
- encouragement of free and critical thinking
- varying teaching methods depending on what the student is most receptive to including: problem based learning, discourse, traditional exercises, experiments, lectures
- exam preparation
- confidence building
- resolution of conceptual difficulties
- helping with homework
- homework marking
- undergraduate and postgraduate application advice
- coaching for Oxbridge entrance including the STEP papers
- interview advice at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
- email contact throughout the week to resolve your problems as an when they arise
- group tuition

Please note (a) while I am based in Hackney, I will cover East, central and South London; (b) I can offer reductions for group sessions.

Personal Description:
I am a University of Oxford graduate in Modern History and Politics. I worked for a year in the charity sector and then completed a joint MA in International Development and Politics. I have previously worked in educational non-profits as I am passionate about giving everyone the opportunity for a good education, and the benefits of education.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught abroad, in both India and Kenya, to a mixture of ages. I also have experience working with Japanese students as a Teaching Assistant on an Oxford summer school. These experiences have helped me learn how to explain myself concisely and clearly, to overcome not only the difficulty of the subject I was teaching, but the language barrier also.

I also have experience tutoring students who wish to apply to Oxbridge, to help them with what they will face at interview, and with their personal statements.

I have over three years and 300 hours of tutoring experience in multiple subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very interactive tutor who asks lots of questions and helps a pupil understand what is being taught. I like to provide tools which they can apply to their personal study when I'm not directly helping them.

I like to encourage lateral thinking and links with society and life, for instance, in economics I would discuss current economic news to help understand economic concepts being learnt and to apply the learning.

Personal Description:
I have several years English teaching and GCSE examining experience following my degree and am currently teaching English/English at GCSE, A level and undergraduate level on a private basis. I have recently completed a Master's degree in English which I passed with merit. Although I have many years of experience in GCSE English, I would particularly welcome opportunities in A level tutoring and have just been appointed to a panel of A level English examiners.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught A Level and GCSE English in FE colleges. Following this I started private tutoring in English at all ages and levels along with some basic Primary maths. More recently my work as an English Literature examiner has enhanced my understanding of student needs and of course the requirements of the GCSE exam syllabus. As I have been tutoring for some time now I am familiar with the varying requirements of all the major exam boards in GCSE and A level English Language and English Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

The greatest thing is seeing the student gain in confidence as their ability grows. One to one tuition enables the student to be honest about problems that are difficult to raise in the classroom at school or college. Consequently the tutor can focus on the individual needs of the student. This is the philosophy I adopt in tutoring. I am very conscientious, approachable and happy to adapt to the needs of the individual student , then watch them thrive.

Personal Description:
I am a young and enthusiastic private tutor with more than 5 years' experience, specializing in English Literature. I am familiar with a wide range of literature, including many popular school set texts. I welcome tuition requests from students at all levels and of all ages.

I hold a First Class BA degree in English as well as an MA in Victorian Studies with Distinction, both from the University of Exeter. I am also in my final year of a PhD in Victorian Literature at the University of London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught a range of ages and abilities in English Literature, both in the UK and the US. I have tutored children learning to read, primary school children, secondary school students (KS3, GCSE and A level), university students (at BA and MA level), and adult learners (including those studying an online course and those studying with the Open University).

Two years ago I also began giving tuition on English grammar and punctuation to adult learners wishing to improve their business communication skills.

I also have experience of helping teach primary school children to read, write, and improve their comprehension skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to each individual students according to their needs, following a consideration of their strengths and weaknesses in the course of the first two sessions. This enables me to teach and enthuse each student. When students are shown different ways of looking at a text, and ways in which it relates to their own lives, literature becomes much more accessible, encouraging them to study and achieve better academic grades.

Extra tutoring gives students individual attention beyond the scope of the classroom, and offers an opportunity to look at set texts in more detail, and at the right pace.

Improving students' confidence is central to my approach to tutoring. With individually tailored tutoring, determination to succeed, and improved confidence, my students are able to achieve excellent grades and reach their full potential.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

Personal Description:
Committed & Determined to Make Difference in Young Children's Life!!

I intend to provide tailored guidance, personal care and involvement, helping students to understand the fundamental concepts while developing their confidence and teaching them techniques of problem solving and time saving.

Since couple of years I started giving personal tuitions to different age group students during spare time.I believe one of the reasons inspires me to teach is the freedom to be creative in the sessions and the potential for spontaneity at the same time. This passion for teaching was reflected as the exceptional result of students and feedback from their parents.

I have always enjoyed and excelled in biology, gaining grade A at Year 10 (GCSE equivalent) and degree in biology. I believe as a biologist I can encourage and inspire my student to study this very interesting and important stream of science. I can help them to understand how our own body functions and how different living things use dissimilar ways to do the similar things, like making energy, eating, and moving. Studying biology will also help them to understand that there are many living things which are harmful, and learning about them can help us to overcome diseases and infections. I can help my students to appreciate the wide career scope of the biology ranging from Medical Sciences to Biotechnology, Anthropology, Biomedical Engineering, Food Technology, Genetic Engineering, Veterinary Medicine and Therapy.

Teaching Experience:

5 years of teaching experience of Science and English.
Teaching Biology at Amersham & Wycombe College.

Personal Description:
I am a professional and dedicated native English teacher with years of experience behind me.

Teaching Experience:

I have gained TEFL experience within varied teaching roles, both abroad and in the UK. In my previous roles I have worked with children, teenagers, and adults in companies, schools, and summer camps. I have taught General English, Business English, and exam classes to groups and one-to-one students in school and business environments. I also have experience of teaching students with dyslexia. This variety has enabled me to continually assess my style of teaching and keep me on my toes!

Working in such roles has given me crucial insight into the needs of the student. I am extremely patient and understand the frustration that can arise when learning, whether it is a new language or subject. I realise that people acquire knowledge through varied means so I am keen to adjust my teaching style to benefit my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a mature, responsible, and eclectic teaching approach, as well as a good sense of humour, is crucial for a successful learning environment.

I offer a custom-made service, whether you need to improve your general English skills, your writing, or simply build your confidence. I also have years of experience in teaching Business English and Exam English (IELTS/FCE/CAE). Whatever you need help with, I am happy to focus my lessons on what you require.

I offer Skype lessons and professional proofreading for people who may not be able to meet face-to-face.

I am available to tutor at your home, workplace, or in a quiet cafe in Cambridge. I can also tutor in Central London.

I'm a 24 year old graduate of Oxford and the London School of Economics. I have my own transport and am happy to travel, but I also have a comfortable and spacious teaching area in my home. I always try to respond to all requests with 24 hours, so please feel free to get in touch!

Teaching Experience:

I have experience with both home schooled students and those who are in mainstream education, and can help with both coursework and exam based courses. My pupils have shown consistent improvement as a result of working with me, with all achieving their predicted grades, and many exceeding expectations.

I have also recently studied German with a private tutor, so I have experience as a pupil as well as a teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take a relaxed, pupil led approach to tutoring, focusing on issues that are particularly important to students whilst making sure that a broad syllabus is being delivered.

Personal Description:
I am a divorcee with two teenagers and a rather loopy dog (all housetrained!) I discovered the joys of teaching as a parent helper at my children's Infant and Junior schools which inspired me to qualify as a Primary School teacher. Unfortunately I have developed arthritis in my knee which is why I am looking to continue my teaching in a non-school environment. My favourite academic subject is literacy because I love reading books by a wide range of authors, e.g. Austin and Dickens to J K Rowling and Jacqueline Wilson. I love creative crafts e.g. card making, cross stitch, scrapbooking etc. Music plays a big part in my life, including listening and making. I'm a bit of a diva on the recorder and can play the full range from Sopranino to Bass. I love to sing.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher who has worked in a number of schools in Essex in permanent, temporary and supply posts across both KS1 and KS2 over the last four years. My PGCE was obtained through School Centred Initial Teacher Training (which comprised spending a lot of time working directly with children). Prior to that I was a parent helper and governor for 5 years at my children's Infant and Junior Schools. I was Music Leader at my last school for two years and ran the choir. I enjoy teaching all primary subjects. I am keen to also support adults in improving their maths and literacy skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am familiar with the Primary Curriculum. Hands on learning is great fun and I enjoy practical activities. I love working on a one to one basis as you can build a rapport and really personalise the learning. I enjoy topic work as it gives the learning a context and shows that subjects do not stand alone without any connections/overlap with each other (just like life). I am keen to support both adults and children in mastering literacy and numeracy skills because they are fundamental life skills. Personalised learning means that any gaps can be filled so that an individual has a firm foundation on which to build.

Personal Description:
I`m a University of Toronto alumnus (BSc) and certified teacher (BEd, DBS) working as an online tutor for A-level and degree students. I'm able to offer assistance on essays, exam preparation and other assignments for the following subjects:

Psychology
Statistics
English Literature
European History

I'm known for being a calm and patient tutor, able to teach material in the way that best suits the student I`m working with. I've helped students create outlines for their essays, understand different theories in psychology, conduct and comprehend statistical analysis, analyse literature, edit papers and learn strategies to absorb material efficiently before exams.

My aim is to make tutoring for university and college students affordable, so I offer a discount for long-term students and also for long appointments. I do all of my tutoring online, mainly via Skype and similar programs, and also by email for essay editing.

Don`t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Teaching Experience:

In the UK, I have experience tutoring for two years in London, Surrey and Norfolk, and I`ve also tutored students for three years across a number of Canadian universities, such as the University of Toronto.

Tutoring Approach:

For A-level and degree students, I'm usually asked to provide assistance with a specific task. For example, I've helped my students construct outlines in order to structure their essays, answer typical questions that will come up on their exams, and proof read their essays to check content, clarity and grammar. I can also clarify theories that are difficult to understand and help students generate ideas for their thesis.

Personal Description:
My name is Aashna and I am a 2nd year medical student at University College London.

I am academically strong in these subjects as I studied Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History to A-level. I am also happy to tutor for Medical entrance exams and interview practice. Contact me for more details.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for last 3 years. In this time I have tutored numerous students from the age of 8 up to 18. In all cases the students performed very well and got great results

I have previous experience with several A-Level and GCSE students one-to-one for the above subjects privately as well helping students with interview practice and entrance exams in group settings.

Having also previously worked with younger students (aged 8-14) teaching kumon and mentoring younger students individually in secondary school, I feel confident working with a range of group sizes and ages..

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my approach to supplement the student's education at school by allowing them to tell me what they are currently studying and what they are struggling with, so I can go over it with them step-by-step at their own pace.

I am also willing to prepare each lesson specifically based on whatever the student wants me to. Students are welcome to contact me via e-mail to inform me of these and can ask for advice or any help.

A Lot of practice is done through past papers and the exam techniques are discussed and explained in detail.

Personal Description:
I'm currently studying History of Art with Philosophy and Arabic at UCL university in London. My passion has always been Art whether studying it or creating Art, or visiting art exhibitions in London. What most inspires me is the way that Art is rooted in a deep historical tradition of culture, style and politics. Two of my paintings from A level are currently displayed on the Saatchi Art Gallery website. I love teaching too; sharing my knowledge, past experience and helping others younger than me succeed confidently and reach their potential in their upcoming exams. I've had work experience in various Art/Fashion based fields.

Teaching Experience:

At school I have enjoyed encouraging and guiding younger students with their stressful art coursework as an Art and Product Design mentor and a Textiles prefect. I have also tutored Maths and English to family friends for their 11+ entrance exams and GCSE exams.
I am currently tutoring GCSE students in History, Art, English and R.S. I'm also tutoring Maths, English and Art to 8-11 year old children.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy teaching, I'm very patient and open minded. My approach to tutoring is conversational in a relaxed atmosphere. I understand how stressful Art or Textiles coursework can be as I've been there myself countless times throughout secondary school and sixth form. My approach to teaching Art is based on what the student wants. I can be their "second teacher" and guide them through it, help them with ideas or help with artist research/analysis. I can also teach them techniques in painting or various other media as it's important to experiment and show different skills. We can visit exhibitions. I'd give them insight and suggest which artists to look at. I have a lot of my old art coursework to look through which may help.

For subjects like History, Religious Studies and Maths, I cover a topic/area per lesson. I can go past the hour if I had to with no charge as I don't like stopping abruptly without finishing the topic. I have various ways of teaching History. I can explain and help understand the topics through Powerpoint presentations, I'd provide resources, past notes and tips on how to approach, write and structure an essay. I like to give short tasks/exercises for the next lesson to keep track of their progress and understanding.

For English, I can help children work towards their 11+ entrance exams. For GCSE, I'd be useful in helping them with texts such as, 'Of Mice and Men' or studying/analysing poetry. I have notes/essays that could help too.

Personal Description:
My name is Nicholas and I specialise in the English language. Be it for exams, creative writing or even a first contact with English I can provide you with a well-structured plan in order to achieve your aims.

Teaching Experience:

I work as an EFL Tutor at the prestigious ECX Training Company. As a private tutor I have taught to a wide range of students for the past 5 years. I specialise in the English language as I am a CELTA qualified teacher, a student of MA Degree in Applied Linguistics and an amateur writer.

No matter what subjects we study or what activities we engage in on a daily basis English is the common `denominator` of everything. Our familiarity with this prime skill determines every successful outcome we strive towards in life from high grades and good jobs to exerting influence over others.

Apart from my English-related credentials, I hold a vast number of other qualifications across several areas including, but not limited to, business, arts & humanities and IT as well as several vocational qualifications ranging from car maintenance to operation of industrial vehicles such as P.O.E.T. and Forklift Counterbalance.

This passion of mine for education has enhanced my ability to teach English in virtually every field imaginable as opposed to the majority of English tutors who teach English only for the purposes of passing an academic exam.

Be it therefore for GCSEs or A-levels, IELTS, business, creative writing or even personal development I can provide you with a well-structured route of learning that is tailored to your needs and aspirations.

Finally, I also offer the option of a full refund should the student fail to meet their targets. Terms and conditions on this offer can be discussed in person.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring involves a flexible way of teaching that is tailored to every student, respecting everyone's differences in terms of working, thinking and studying.

Personal Description:
I am an 18 year old university student, who attended a Cambridge based private school for GCSE and A-Level qualifications. I am currently studying Television and Radio production at Media City UK. My native language is English, however I also speak Spanish to a high standard, due to dual nationality parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent 5 years working with children from age 3-14 as a gymnastics coach. I have therefore been CRB checked and am used to working with different children from a variety of backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

As a dyslexic, I understand difficulties in attentiveness or memory, particularly for younger children. I aim to make material interesting, and therefore memorable. With older students I am to offer innovative ideas to expand their understanding and enjoyment of the subject matter.
