Personal Description:
I am in my fifties and live in Shoreham by Sea. I can travel to see you within the Brighton and Worthing areas.

I am an experienced and fully qualified teacher of English (Key Stage 2/3, GCSE or As/A2 level English Language /Literature), English as a Foreign Language examinations (IELTS or Cambridge First, Advanced or Proficiency). I also offer support for essay writing or study skills at university level and can help those on teacher training courses. I have previously studied Drama and Media, so I can teach these subjects for GCSE as well.

As well as doing a small amount of private tutoring, I am the director of studies at a local school and also write up critiques for creative writing for two well known colleges that take assignments by correspondence.

I also have an MA in Creative Writing and have had poems published including two books. I am able to give critiques for poetry or stories that you have written.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English for 15 years. This has been both in Further Education and at private colleges. I now work in private education. I also have extensive experience of one-to one tutoring having visited many students in the Worthing to Brighton areas over the last ten years.

Teaching on Skype is relatively new but I started back in 2006, so I have gained experience of this from the onset and thoroughly enjoy meeting my students who live all around the world. On Skype I offer a free 20 minute introductory session. I am happy to spend some time discussing the concept of learning on the computer, so that you can decide if it is the right option for you.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly manner and approach to tutoring and believe that a good working relationship with the student is important.

"In the six months my son has been with Michael he has improved at such a fast rate it's been hard to keep up: 100% for Maths results, top of the class for long handwriting assignments, being moved to the top groups for both Maths and Literacy. Michael's manner and methods are both inspiring and effective."
Many thanks, Ms. Julia Assad

Personal Description:
I currently work on a one to one and small group basis with students of various ages in a Medical Pupil Referral unit I find the one to one contact simulating and highly rewarding. I have taught for over 30 years and am an Advanced Skills Teacher. I have always wanted to teach and love what I do. I am patient, understanding, supportive and highly aware of the need to enable the student to achieve. I work through praise and careful guidance work to ensure the student gets the most from the one to one contact. I am educated to Masters degree level and have taught in both comprehensive schools and special needs units. I believe in a child centred approach to learning and always aim to work for and with the student.

Teaching Experience:

I was Head of Drama in a school in Dorset for seventeen years. During that time I worked extensively with children of all ages. I have trained teachers and guided those new to the teaching profession successfully through the early stages of their careers in teaching. I have directed numerous school and examination productions which has given me an excellent knowledge of plays and productions for use with English and Drama teaching. I have taught adults GCSE Psychology with a very good success rate. I have enjoyed the opportunities teaching in both the comprehensive and adult sectors have given me and I hope to continue this type of tuition through a more individual and one to one basis.
I am currently working with students who are unable to access school due to medical conditions. This has enabled me to further develop and extend my approaches and strategies for one to one teaching and small group situations.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is always to work with the needs of the student involved. I always listen to their requirements and tailor my teaching to what is needed. I value student interaction and would hope to use as much student based ideas and thoughts where this is possible. I have an attitude to teaching which always aims to enable the learner in a positive and supportive environment.
I have a good sense of humour, I am patient , a very good listener and an individual who works in a proactive manner. I create and work with a range of resources which are specific to the topic and area being studied and also create resources tailor made for the student involved. I use praise and positive areas continually as I believe we all like to receive positive thoughts about ourselves and this is a means to promoting a good and solid foundation to study techniques.
Although I have been teaching for a long time I really enjoy the challenges,satisfaction and creativity teaching offers. For every student I work with I plan and create personal , individual lessons and approaches which are appropriate for each student. This approach has led to satisfied individuals at all levels.

Personal Description:
I am currently a third year medical student from the University of Newcastle but I have also graduated in Human Sciences from the University of Durham back in 2007. During the holidays I live in London. I have a wealth of experience working with children and teenagers from being a Christmas grotto host at Harrods to volunteering at Great Ormond Street Hospital for over a year.

My work ethic when I was younger was not as disciplined as it is now and I am aware of the difficulties that students can face when it comes to learning new concepts and hope to help tutees overcome these barriers.

Having applied to grammar school, university and medical school I am aware of all the application processes and interviewing processes.

I am outgoing and to keep active I play hockey for my local club and my university college.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped younger family members to grasp ideas and offer new ways of learning if they were struggling. I have had job roles in the past training new employees up and feel this is a mode of teaching.

I would like to extend my higher knowledge to helping students achieve top grades in their GCSE's and A-levels

Within my current course we have peer to peer teaching which has proved to be a very effective learning tool.

Tutoring Approach:

Different individuals have different learning styles, I for one am more visual. I would try to get an understanding of how the tutee learns best, and encourage them to engage in activities that would help them. For instance, if they are visual learners then get them to draw things out.

Encouragement and patience is of great importance and listening to the needs of the individual.

My role as a tutor would be to guide and encourage the tutee to reach their educational and professional goals.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified IT specialist and taught Computing and IT at secondary school. I am currently working as a tutor within schools and privately teaching English, Maths, Physics and IT. I am very patient, and approachable. I have years of experience working with both young people and adults, as in the past I was responsible for the training and development of 30 staff. I have carried out training needs analysis and recognized training and development resulting from the gaps identified. I helped the organisation to achieve both Investors In People and Charter Mark awards.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience training and development of employees in an organisation, working with consultants to develop training courses and workshops for the staff. I have taught very successfully for over 5 years in schools and have got really good feedback from students and parents. I am passionate about teaching and committed to helping students make real academic progress. I take a holistic view, I am supportive and sensitive to the students/tutees needs. I am able to work with tutees with special educational needs as I will differentiate resources accordingly. I generally agree and set targets, which are regularly checked to ensure progress towards the learning outcome. In tutoring, resources are tailored to meet the learner's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring sessions are interactive, fun and stimulating as I believe it is important to help students explore and understand their skills and knowledge base. I support each student in all aspects of learning, including homework support, speaking, listening, reading, writing, practical and functional skills, students undertake assessments to improve both their subject knowledge and examination results. I love this profession because you never stop learning; every new part requires research into a historical epoch or subject creating an expansive remit which no course I can imagine could afford.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old female.
I am a graduate from The University of Warwick with a high 2:1 in Economics having studied for my GCSE's and A levels at two top Colchester grammar schools.
I have 6 years experience, successfully helping countless children to pass the 11+ or gain scholarships to a variety of public schools.
I have a high success rate with my 11+ students, with over 70% of them being offered a place at CRGS or CCHS last year.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored children ranging from 4-18 in a variety of subjects.
Mathematics
English
Science
Economics
Business studies
11+/Entrance examinations/Scholarship preparation
Early years

Tutoring Approach:

Due to high demand I now only offer group sessions for the 11+. The 11+ is an extremely challenging examination and few children are able to pass without additional help. I push all of my children to achieve the best possible result. For many children the 11+ is not appropriate and this is discussed with parents at the free assessment. It is usually apparent after an hour assessment of the child, whether or not they are capable of passing the exam.
I am now taking bookings for January 2015. Places are available for year 4 and 5 children.
Group sessions will be 1 1/2 hours each week and will consist of 45 minutes of maths and 45 minutes of English. Lessons are charged at £20 with a free trial lesson.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to reserve a place for your son or daughter or if you wish to discuss things further.

Personal Description:
I studied English Literature at Edinburgh University, graduating with a First Class Masters in 1999, before going on to train as an actor at the prestigious London Academy of Dramatic Art (LAMDA) in 2001. Since graduating, I have worked extensively as an actor in theatre, television and radio and since 2007 I have worked very closely with acclaimed theatre company The Factory as an associate producer and director as well as an actor. I have a wide-ranging interest in the arts (from contemporary music through to cinema and the visual arts) as well as an active interest in politics and current affairs. I have worked as a free-lance tutor since 2005 and love not only the obvious flexibility it affords but, far more importantly, the mental, creative and social stimulation it provides both me and, hopefully, those I teach.

Teaching Experience:

In 2005 I registered with a private agency and taught English Literature as a freelance tutor at GCSE level for them that year.
I have wide and extensive experience teaching and creating drama with young people: I have worked on schools and youth projects with Shakespeare's Globe, the National Student Drama Festival and the Carney Academy of Performing Arts as well providing private tuition for drama school entrance and audition technique.
I occasionally work for the University of Westminster as a free-lance actor, working closely with director and academic Helen Eastman.

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that education needs to be grounded in passing on, developing and deepening the love of a subject and that, as such, learning shouldn't be results led. I also believe that people are different and that an approach to tutoring and education should reflect that.

As such I aim to keep engagement and enjoyment at the centre of the process. I encourage pupils to engage with their subject through lateral and creative thinking in the belief that good results follow when a student can enter into a dialogue with the work they are being asked to do and not the other way round.

Personal Description:
I have recently submitted my doctoral thesis in contemporary literature and am awaiting my verbal examination and, eventually, accreditation with doctoral status. In the meantime, I am returning to tutoring, a job I have enjoyed in the past. I am passionate about English literature and love to teach.

Teaching Experience:

I have a great deal of childminding experience and regularly help three girls--aged 7, 10 and 12-- with a range of homework tasks and creative learning games.

I have experience of tutoring English to children aged 14-18 in preparation for English Language and English Literature exams. I also teach general essay writing and exam technique in humanities subjects and can advise students on interview technique and writing their personal statements for university applications.

I have taught adult learners at university level in a seminar setting as well as one-to-one tuition. My one-to-one tuition work was on essay technique and English grammar for an ESL learner.

I have experience teaching children with learning difficulties, visually impaired adults and ESL learners.

I have also taught English Literature to seniors.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer a friendly and creative approach to learning and enjoy finding unusual approaches to suit different sorts of learners. I design my own illustrated hand outs and make use of music and media to help learners to make sense of a text. I have extensive experience of working with children from infants to teenagers, but am more used to teaching older children and adults.

A recent report on my teaching made the following comments:
'This was a great seminar. You were clearly well prepared and had planned the session in a way that allowed time for a detailed discussion. Crucially, the session was geared toward enabling students to apply their newfound knowledge to a reading of literature. Your selection of textual examples was appropriate, and the music added a lighter note to the final part of the class. I was particularly impressed by your friendly, engaging and encouraging manner, which helped to create a classroom atmosphere that allowed students to share and explore their ideas, and to seek clarification where necessary. You deal really well with students who express uncertainties about their knowledge. Overall this was a highly successful and enjoyable seminar'.

Personal Description:
My name is Clementine. I am a Third year English and Drama student a Royal Holloway University of London. I am bilingual in English and French.
I was born in Australia. My education was conducted between these two countries and as a result I have a double culture and a great interest in travel and literature. I have been trained under two different forms of education and have been taught efficient methods of work. My passion for trying out new experiences has led to me learning Spanish.
I have a great desire to communicate and interact with others- this is why I went in to tutoring. Using all my travel and personal experience has come in quite handy for inspiring students. This has helped me find interesting sources to make lessons more diversified and varied.
Hobbies include reading ( a lot !), theatre, fencing and debating in the Shakespeare Society.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for the past 2 and half years. I teach a wide range of students- from 4 to 13 years olds - in various subjects ranging from English and French Literature to Reading and Writing skills.
I follow my students for the quasi-totality of the past year, helping with English and Literature and boosting confidence skills in Oral presentation skills.
If needed I can produce references.

Tutoring Approach:

The way I conduct lessons is very simple- the session is planned out with the student to encourage them to an organised and eventually autonomous method. Any point that is not well assimilated is reepxlained and focused on. The lessons will follow different difficulty and themes - these can be arranged from a selection to tailor to each pupil's needs.
The focus in such lessons is to encourage the student's progression in anyway possible. Small tasks will be given now and then to check on the student's progression.

For students wishing to enlarge their knowledge of English Literature, emphasis is put on the latter (my specialisation being the 19th century rise of the novel) and contemporary culture. Themes range from different periods of English history to contemporary issues that rock today's world.

French lessons are held in a similar manner with the general aim of not only further knowledge but enjoyment in the pursuit of it.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable tutor based in the Sandhurst area. I am able to offer tuition in my home. My normal working hours are Monday-Friday, 3pm-8:30pm amd on Wednesdays from 9am-9pm. I aim to be as flexible as possible, so if you would like to have tuition at a time that falls outside of these hours then please contact me and I will try my best to see you then.

Teaching Experience:

I currently have a varied client base of 10 tutees aged 7-45. Several of these been with me since September 2011; I will happily provide references to support this. I first began tutoring in August 2010 & I have taught English Literature & Language both at Primary and Secondary school level since then. Additionally, I have worked for Let Me Play LTD where I taught English as a foreign language in their summer holiday camp held in License Victualler's School, Ascot. I worked for Let Me Play in August 2011 & then Aug-Sept this year after they asked if I could work for them once more. I have taught a wide range of children with varying needs. I worked at Cove School as a Learning Support Assistant, where I worked closely with children with learning difficulties such as dyslexia. Moreover, I spent a year at Robert May's School working as an Unqualified Teacher. Throughout this role I worked with a large number of students, not just providing support for those who were less able or under confident but also helping GCSE student turn A s into A*s. I am currently working 4 days a week as a Teaching Assistant at Garth Hill College.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim as a tutor is to improve students' English skills however; my secondary aim is to ensure that they enjoy the process. There are always going to be bits which are less exciting, nevertheless I strive for a smile every lesson.
On first meeting a new tutee I ask them a few questions about their experience of English as a subject, discussing specifically what they enjoy and what they don't, as this can often provide me with valuable insight as to how to deliver my lessons in a way they will respond to. I ask them to take part in a series of activities aimed to test their reading and writing capabilities so that I can evaluate these for myself. But, I also find it very useful to take a look at some of the work that they have been doing in school, where this is possible. After this session, which should take 30-45 minutes, I discuss my findings with the parents and ask them in which key areas they would like to see their son or daughter improve. This is only a generic template of a first meeting as each one can be quite different depending on the student and the family.
As the tuition continues I will work directly with the student, working specifically on the areas which need most improvement. I also aim to tie in from time to time with what they are studying at school as this helps to cement the learning that takes place there. Furthermore, recapping on ideas that they have been recently studying can help to improve a student's confidence as they are ready equipped with some of the answers. From this point onwards contact with parents tends to take one of these 3 forms 1) A summary chat immediately after each session (around 5-10 minutes). 2) A longer catch up on a monthly basis, again immediately after a session. 3) Email / telephone contact. Again these are not strict rules just templates, generally parents have as much or as little involvement as they wish and conversations about tuition happen whenever they are required.

I enjoy working with children and adults alike!

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher with over 10 years experience (both KS1 and KS2).

Personal Description:
I am a confident, diligent and sociable person, with a wide knowledge of world history, and specialising in American and South-East Asian history and culture. I hold a double first class Bachelors degree in History and American Studies from Canterbury Christ Church University, and have had many years experience leading youth projects such as youth councils, young persons' scrutiny forums (YPSF) and have acted as a liasion on several historical and cultural preservation projects such as the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) and the Church House Preservation Committee.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience as a teaching assistant to KS3 and KS4 level history at a state secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a holistic approach to the teaching of history, ensuring that the student becomes engaged within a fuller understanding of the period being studied. As a former student and teach of history, I realise that the principal block to a tutee's understanding of historical concepts is a lack of immersion within the relevant time-frames and thus an inability to fully comprehend why certain actions were taken, and the wider effect this had.

Thus in my approach I am firm believer that it is as important for every student to understand to a higher level than that offered by the current state curriculum the context of the period they are studying. As a consequence I offer tailored introductions to said period's culture, economy, religious and political setting, and even physical geography.

Furthermore, I offer the necessary skills to craft this knowledge into well-reasoned, informed essays. My intimate knowledge of the state education system and beyond has imbued me with the ability to gauge how assignments will be assessed and thus I can work with students not only on improving their knowledge, but showcasing this in highly-marked, structured and coherent written forms.

I use a number of methods to achieve this, including homework assignments, but also using character adoption, audio-visual aids and a mixture of written and verbal questions of varying length and form.

I am a highly motivated individual with excellent communications skills.

Having achieved a First in English Literature at the University of Westminster, I have subsequently worked for a number of high profile charities including Comic Relief, in communications roles, continuing to utilise my writing and speaking skills.

I am currently employed as a financial clerk, and so have a good mathematical background.

I am passionate, enthusiastic and patient, with experience working with children and adults from a variety of backgrounds and age groups.

Teaching Experience:

I have volunteered as a supervisor at a nursery and a student holiday camp, where I supervised and taught children aged between 8-14.

Personal Description:
An enthusiastic and dynamic multilingual tutor with a variety of teaching experiences at all levels in three different countries (France, Romania, England).

Over 8 years of experience as a qualified multilingual teacher/proofreader/translator in the study of French and English language.

Teaching Experience:

8 years of private tuition (French/ English) to children and adults in Romania, France and England;
5 years teaching and tutoring French and English in Romania
3 years of tutoring in France

This total immersion in a French environment with native speakers hugely contributed to my understanding of the French culture and behaviour, as well as their way of addressing and solving matters.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider the student's progress even after a few lessons to be the most important aim and reason for my work.

The pleasure I take in teaching foreign languages comes especially from my wish to instill into my students a love for the beauty and mystery of a new linguistic field and new semantic world. One of my biggest contentments is to share my knowledge and interest with them and then acknowledge their progress in this domain. My purpose is not only to work with passion but also to enable my students to enlarge their horizons so they are able to quickly compare, assimilate and develop their swiftness when communicating in a foreign language.

In other words, I target with priority:

-the valorization of the student's potential,
-the diversity of the amount of information that each student assimilates
-the enthusiasm and the interactive atmosphere during the lessons

I find that the level at which each student begins with is not important as long as there is a visible progress between the start and the finish of the tuition.

The basis of my lessons consists of the notions which everyone needs in order to know a foreign language, aspects related to the cultural and the real life and the attention on the typical rules of the foreign language.

With delight and interest I concentrate on the efficient use of a variety of media (songs, short films, films, books, newspaper articles, literature) which could animate the lessons.

My eagerness and determination to learn and teach foreign languages (French, English and Italian) developed my interest in analyzing, comparing and synthesizing information as well as enabling me to discover various methods of teaching a considerable amount of knowledge. Through assiduity and responsibility I managed to find the path towards mastering these foreign languages and teaching them with enthusiasm.

Foreign languages are a source of mystery, a mix of rules and originality, a mine of meanings and linguistic surprises, a challenge. I've always found them a very absorbing and fulfilling but sometimes frustratingly vast field which attracts and challenges to a thorough study and wider analysis.

I learned that paying close attention to quality of all my work and grasping opportunities to learn new skills must be prioritized by professional workers.

1) "The first thing that struck me (as an American native speaker) is the remarkable fluency of her oral and written French, which is of a very high academic calibre.
I appreciated her openness and intellectual acuity. In short, it was truly a pleasure to have her as a tutor.
I was also impressed by her discretion, politeness and ability to work with her students and encourage them to progress and love French as one of the most beautiful language in this world."

2) "I find Giorgiana's teaching method easy to follow, however thorough. She very well manages to alternate my two languages (English and Romanian) and make references to the similarities between my languages and French. This helps me understand better because she can then refer to a rule in a language that also applies in French and I can use that to remember the French rule better. After she shows me something, she always ensures that I have taken in the lesson and have listened carefully, testing me on what she has just taught me. To consolidate the learning, she regularly gives me work to complete before our next lesson. Thanks to Giorgiana's tuition, I am now ahead of my class and my teacher is very impressed!"
Maria R., 12 years old student.

3) "I noticed she was a very intelligent person, motivated, with genuine working aptitudes, treating the teaching profession with the maximum of responsibility and seriousness. She belongs to that category of people with a high spirit of undertaking interesting and useful methods, updated in her domain and in other fields as well.
She really has pedagogical tact, knows how to adapt to the public and catch its attention through a mix of gentleness, patience and amiability."

Personal Description:
I am a diligent, competent student currently studying Chemistry, Biology and Spanish at A2 at a prestigious Grammar school.

I achieved 6A*s and 4As at GCSE including Spanish, Geography, Mandarin and RS. At AS level I achieved AAAB including Chemistry, Biology, Spanish and RS. I would love to help others reach their full potential as there is nothing I enjoy more than seeing myself make a tangible, positive impact on others. I believe my own experiences can aid greatly in my tutoring as I am well aware of the requirements of both GCSE and AS level down to the finest detail.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored two students as well as one of my younger cousins in the past for both GCSE and 11+ exams . I tutored 11+ Maths and English and GCSE Biology, Spanish,Chemistry and Mandarin (Chinese).Both of these students managed to improve by at least a grade in the subjects I tutored them in and I am very proud of this.
I am also willing to tutor students in AS Biology, Spanish or RS.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very hands on and I am very charismatic. There can be nothing worse than having an uninspiring teacher when trying to boost your grades in a subject. I will look to work my students hard but at the end of the day, you get out what you put in.

There is no easy way to do well, however I do believe that I can help students to improve their grade by focusing on exam technique and application of knowledge.

Personal Description:
I'm a highly qualified primary teacher, offering individual, paired or small group tuition in English, Maths and SATs/11+test preparation to pupils in the primary age range.

I pride myself on giving quality parental feedback regarding their child`s learning after each lesson, as I find this partnership aids children`s commitment to their learning.

I live in New Barn, Longfield, Kent, and I offer tuition in one hour sessions. However, I can arrange longer sessions should they be required over school holidays.

I can tutor at your home if you are within 10 minutes drive, or you can drop your child to my home for their tuition session, where they can learn in an uninterrupted study environment.(I find children often focus better in an environment specifically set up for them away from their home).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher since 1996.
I have a thorough understanding of all aspects of teaching and learning as I have been a SENCO, Leader of Teaching and Learning, Deputy Head and Headteacher in my time, and have taught and planned curriculum progression and programmes of study for all year groups, from YR to Y6.

Tutoring Approach:

My beliefs and values about learning:

I am a successful primary school teacher of more than 15 years experience, having taught children from YR (aged 4 and 5) through to Y6 (aged 10 and 11). Also, as an ex-Headteacher, I understand how children need tailored facilitation of their learning experiences to really thrive.

I believe that all children deserve the chance to `be` their personal best, and understand that some children need a little more encouragement and nurturing in this respect than others. For me, teaching is a real vocation. I enjoy finding the `key` to unlock the love of learning within each individual, and gain great satisfaction from seeing a child take hold of this key themselves and become an increasingly independent learner.

Children learn in different ways, and need different things from their learning experiences. Some may gain benefit in completing familiar written exercises to reinforce their learning, while others may need to activate other senses, move about, sing a song, dance, or use some other physical resource to support their understanding. I try to work within a child`s dominant learning style, while gently exploring and developing other independent learning skills, in order to eventually add more `tools` to a child`s learning toolbox. This fun and individually tailored approach enables the child to develop skills and habits which helps them see learning positively, as an interesting challenge, rather than a chore.

In addition to having this strong focus on developing a learner`s confidence in themselves and their ability, I also acknowledge that education is a competitive business nowadays. In some areas, children are tested for admittance to `selective` secondary schools (via `11+`tests), and of course, every parent wants what is best for their child. I am able to support a child in getting to grips with the sometimes confusing elements of these tests, by familiarising them with the kinds of questions that might be asked and working with them on developing techniques and strategies to support them in the tests.

I have been CRB checked (enhanced) and my clearance is available for scrutiny for prospective parents prior to tutoring commencing.
