Personal Description:
APPOINTMENT SLOTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE (as of March 2015):
Friday 7pm onwards and holiday times.

As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

Now, with over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of institutions - from Oxbridge entrance to comprehensives on 'Special Measures' - I am young enough to remember my struggles and old enough to know better.

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

This is my sixth year as a full-time tutor, but I was a secondary school teacher for 19 years before that.

I have experienced many types of academic performance from high-performing grammar schools to comprehensives on 'special measures'. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility within schools, particularly in the pastoral system such as Head of Year. I have been a grade-A examiner for AQA GCSE Geography.

During the last six years of 11 Plus entrance, including September 2014, 15 out of my 25 students have passed. I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, a 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts. Two out of three 12+ and 13+ tutees I have taught have passed their exams.

I have taught numerous syllabi: in the last six years I have tutored AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC at A level Geography. Indeed, I taught the whole of the A2 Edexcel Geogaphy syllabus online to one a tutee in Moscow: he has now gained a place at Aston University. I have mainly tutored the AQA and Edexcel syllabi for GCSE Maths. It would be fair to say that the overwhelming majority of my A level tutees experience significant gains and regularly obtain A or B grades.

At the moment (March 2015) I have 20 tutees in total: this includes 4 home-school tutees doing a variety of subjects such as GCSE Maths and Geography as well as Key Stage 3 Maths, English, History, Geography, Citizenship and RE; three GCSE English tutees; one Key Stage 3 Maths tutee; two Key Stage 3 English tutees; three 12 Plus tutees; five Key Stage 2 Maths tutees; two GCSE Maths tutee; one KS5 numeracy tutee, one A Level Geography tutee and, finally, three GCSE Geography tutees.

I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

Tutoring and learning should be natural and intuitive so that tutees can 'fly' by themselves.

To make the most of tuition, a tutee must be 'on-board'. If it's their idea - even better. A tutee that is in-charge of their own learning makes an excellent pupil.

As a tutor, I decide what is right for the tutee - not an institution. Parents often want someone who is familiar with the education system but independent enough to give an honest assessment. My main concern is the welfare of the tutee - not just their academic progress - nor the reputation of some teacher or institution. If something is not right for a tutee, no matter how forceful a parent might be or how much money I might lose, I simply will not do it. Each year there are a handful of tutees I turn away because of this.

In the first session I will try to identify what it is the tutee needs, and you may wish to quiz me in more detail. I will need access to school reports and examples of the tutee's work. Through discussion with my tutee and parental input it should become clear the reason for the tutoring.

From this 'snag' list, I will design a bespoke program to meet the educational needs of the tutee. It is flexible and, unlike a classroom situation, I can respond immediately to the needs of the tutee.

Homework will always be set, depending upon the demands placed upon the tutee by the normal school week. The tutee will be far more involved with learning than in a normal school class where they can 'hide', so prospective tutees need to expect plenty of chat and discussion, reviewing work and giving feedback.

For learning to be 'on the wing', to be natural and instinctive, tutees need to work hard without feeling the burden. This can only happen through enjoyment and a lot of laughter. That's my part: helping tutees to work really hard without realising it.

If at any point I feel unable to help, I won't just prolong tuition, or if our work has met its aims then I will call a halt. The point of tuition is not to need me anymore, so they can 'fly' all by themselves.

I offer two types of 'remote' tuition options at the moment:

i/ ONLINE FACE-TO-FACE TUITION: face-to-face on Skype is very good in dealing with syllabus issues and reinforcing and filling in the holes the class teachers leave behind. Face-to-face tuition lends itself well to visual resources such as diagrams, maps and pictures. It is primarily discussion-based and the tutee needs to take notes as we go along. I regularly send tutees files to prepare them for the lesson and to discuss in the lesson. If a tutee comes to face-to-face tuition and expects to be spoon-fed or entertained, it just won't work. Extra work can be set to test their written understanding. Usually, it is enough to go through topics the student struggles with. Once they 'click' with the topic/issue, we move onto other areas. Payment for this type of tuition is a flat fee each week to cover lesson preparation and the lesson itself. The marking of substantial pieces of work outside of lesson time such as essays will incur a modest marking fee.

ii/ CORRESPONDENCE-STYLE WITH UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT: work is set through powerpoints, pdf files and word documents for the student to do on their own in their own time. This should keep the tutee occupied for between 1-3 hours each week, unless more is required. It is then returned to me within the week. I mark it and provide feedback in the form of an audio file (up to 30 mins), talking them through the various issues. Any amounts of email conversations to help the student with this particular piece of work are allowed, after feedback has been given. This is very much an ongoing and open-ended commitment, once work has been set and feedback given, and the student is totally free to contact me with any issues. As a result, the payment structure is open-ended and depends on the amount of time used to prepare resources, mark and give audio feedback. This is added up at the end of each week, and the client is then billed. Follow-up emails and support are not timed but are considered as a 'free' part. Generally, this time will be from about 45-90 mins per week. I keep a track of the time minute to minute and endeavour to keep the time used as short as possible while setting about 1-3 hours of work. This is very much a trust system of working. I tailor the work individually to suit the student as opposed to an ordinary correspondence course that just covers syllabus content.

Please be aware that I do charge for travelling over 30 miles (roundtrip: 15 miles each way):
30-40 mile roundtrip - 5
41-50 mile roundtrip - 10
51-60 mile roundtrip - 15
61-70 mile roundtrip - 20

Personal Description:
I graduated in 2006 from Queen Mary University of London after achieving a 2:1 in English and History. It took me a couple of years before I found my passion for teaching, a passion that was made even more acute, by having worked in more conventional jobs, which I didn't enjoy after leaving university. I have a passion for horses and horse riding and have a young horse, I love writing, reading, cooking and walking my dogs as well as teaching. I love living in the country and taking part in all aspects of country life.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career teaching in Andover as a full time primary school teacher. I started off in Year 5 and progressed into Year 3. I have tutored a variety of different children:
Child 1: 2010- present, 16 year old (Autistic), GCSE Geography, English Literature, Science, Maths and Environmental Science. B-Tec in Countryside management.
Child 2: April 2011-November 2011, 10 year old, Year 6 Maths, 11+ preparation.
Child 3: January 2011- September 2011, 10 year old, 11+ preparation.
Child 4: January 2011- Present, 8 year old, Year 3/4 Maths tuition, horse riding.
Child 5: April 2011-Present, 7 year old (Dyslexic/Dysnumerate), Maths tuition.
Child 6: January 2012 - present, 11+ preparation.
I have been a freelance educational journalist for three years now writing for `Primary teacher Update` magazine which is a very reflective exercise and I thoroughly enjoy it.
In September 2012 I moved to a school in Ringwood and was the Year 3 Year Leader covering a maternity position.
(September 2013) As I`ve moved into my fifth year as a qualified teacher, I have now settled into a different school in Ringwood and am back in Year 5 enjoying supporting a wide variety of different abilities of children.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very individualised style and approach to tutoring. I believe that each child is completely unique and that if you find the right key, whether its jumping on a trampoline whilst reciting their times tables or making a colourful mind map to understand how the bodies immune system works, you can unlock their understanding. I enjoy tutoring because you see children really blossom and the progress they make with one on one support is truely astounding and lovely to be a part of. I believe communication between parent and tutor as well as tutor and tutee is key to success. If you would like to discuss my methods further please don`t hesitate to call for an informal chat.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Alex.

I have a doctorate in English Literature from Queen's University, and am an experienced tutor at postgraduate, undergraduate, A-level, and GCSE. I have a relaxed and friendly approach, and believe that a student must enjoy the subject to achieve good results.

As a Student Support worker at QUB since 2009, I have had plenty of opportunity to develop my one-to-one tuition skills. In this role I work with undergraduate students on time- and stress-management, exam and essay writing technique, and confidence-building, among other things - all of which I can bring in to our tuition sessions.

Teaching Experience:

2008-present: UK Tutors, GCSE and A-level.
2006-2008, QUB: 'Victorianism to Modernism', 2nd year undergraduate module in literature.
2007, School of Lifelong Learning, QUB: '20th Century British and Irish Poetry for Beginners', a self-devised course for all entry-levels.
2008-2010, QUB: 'Sounds of the City', 1st year undergraduate module in literature.
2009: 'English in Transition', 1st year undergraduate module in literature.
2009: 'Introduction to American Writing', 2nd year undergraduate module in literature.
2011: 'British Poetry 1880-1990', MA module in literature.
2013: 'American Literature 1945-1960', 3rd year undergradaute module.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely passionate about literature and its role in improving literacy and students' critical skills, believing that it should be taught in a genial, friendly, interactive atmosphere in order to engender a genuine passion for the subject and to achieve the best results. My tutees have clear learning targets and access to a range of textbooks, casebooks and other learning materials provided by me.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Jodie. I am a 30 year old female currently studying a PhD in Education Policy at The University of Nottingham. I am friendly, enthusiastic, organised and I have several years of experience tutoring students with a range of abilities, both at home and in a school environment.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or require any further information.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach on undergraduate courses in The School of Sociology at The University of Nottingham. This year I taught on the MA Philosophy of Research module and the BA Social Policy and Social Justice module.

Over the past eight years I have privately tutored numerous children and adults in English Literature, English Language, Social Sciences, and Mathematics.

For five years I have mentored students applying to Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities as part of the Oxbridge Mentoring Scheme run by Insight Education. This involved supporting students throughout the entire admissions process, including writing their personal statement, interview preparation, support with developing their analytical skills and preparation for entrance examinations.

For two years I worked as an academic tutor in an inner city comprehensive school in London. Here I tutored sixth form students in English Language, English Literature, Social Sciences, and Media Studies. A large component of this role was supporting students with essay writing skills and study skills and I am happy to support students with these skills in a general way, or in relation to a specific subject. In this role I also coordinated and ran summer school transition programmes for students moving into year seven, and tutored mathematics and English to year seven students. I am therefore comfortable teaching and supporting students from a range of different year groups.

I have tutored GCSE English to students who have been excluded from mainstream school, and students who are struggling to pass GCSE qualifications. Several of my roles have contained a motivational and mentoring aspect, and I have lots of experience of getting students organised in their approach to study.

Summary of Academic Qualifications:

A levels in English Language, English Literature and Sociology all at grade A
BA English Language and Literature (2:1) from The University of Oxford
MSC Social Policy with Distinction from The London School of Economics and Political Science
MA in Research Methods (Social Policy) with Distinction from The University of Nottingham
I am currently undertaking a funded PhD in Education Policy at The University of Nottingham

As I have degrees and post graduate qualifications in English Language, English Literature and Social Science subjects and I am happy to teach these up to degree level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very much dependant on the student. I believe that different people are suited to different learning styles and therefore I always take the first couple of sessions to assess how a student likes to work and what their difficulties might be.

I like to set 'homework' tasks - even if they are very short - to encourage the student to develop the skills they are learning in their own time. I am happy to mark additional work and essays and to e-mail students with any advice or feedback that they may require whilst working on a particular assignment.

Personal Description:
I am a professional actor and graduate from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and have been working in the private tuition industry for over seven years for various agencies, most prominently The Tutors Group. Before drama school I worked as a Primary School teaching assistant and drama teacher for two years, after graduating from King's College London with a 2:1 in my BA (Hons) English Literature & Language degree. I went straight to university from Norwich High School for Girls in Norfolk. So I have travelled all the way across England in my pursuit of study! I always wanted to tutor because I knew how I worked for all my GCSEs, A-Levels and my BA, and I was fed up with the media claiming exams were getting easier for kids: teenagers today work super hard, as I did! Tutoring older students also provided a lovely contrast to my Primary School teaching. I am also on the Directory certified teachers for LAMDA examinations.

Teaching Experience:

Dog Kennel Hill Primary School
Teaching Assistant and Special Needs Support
Oct 2008 - Present

During the morning session, I am currently working in a Year One class in this south London school and thriving on aiding the children specifically with their literacy, reading and speaking skills as well as exploring numeracy work.
I lead certain lessons including story time and circle time.
I support key groups of children within the class and am able to use my initiative to plan, deliver and assess their learning in order to encourage progression.
I have vast experience in creating my own resources using ICT, and creating artistic displays to proudly exhibit the children's work.
I have taken courses in Early Literacy Support, encouraging creative and inclusive teaching especially for children with English as an additional language and complex special needs children. I also have training in "Letters and Sounds" Phonics, and "A First Workshop on Autism".
During the afternoon session, I support a child in Year Two with Autism. I plan and prepare all his lessons, working towards targets which I and the class teacher have set for him; these include phonics, counting and social skills. I use music as a reward system for the boy, and his singing has greatly improved his speech quality and communication skills.
I have extensive training in Autistic Spectrum Conditions, undertaken with Southwark, covering various aspects including history, sensory integration and behavioural management.
I work with various children with complex special needs within school, including children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Galactosemia, and have worked closely with speech and language therapists and learning mentors.
I offer one to one support outside of lesson time in the form of music lessons for special needs children; I prepare and provide my own resources and find singing with my students extremely rewarding.
I am in the process of setting up an after-school drama club for Key Stage One students at the school, having directed the infant school Christmas play this and last year.
I have also spent time in Key Stage Two classrooms, focussing on aiding older children with their literacy skills: I particularly enjoyed aiding Year Six students in exploring literary themes and using appropriate critical vocabulary when studying children's literature.

Stage Coach Theatre Arts
Early Years and Drama Teacher
Jan 2009 - Present
I am currently working in the Beckenham Junction branch of Stage Coach: using games and prepared resources, I teach my Early Stages children elementary levels of dance, drama and singing, allowing them to develop their confidence levels both on and off the stage. I have written and directed several productions for the children to perform over the year, showcasing their talents to their proud parents.
Since September I have taken on the role of drama teacher for the elder children aged six to sixteen. Through games, improvisation and text work, my students are encouraged to enjoy and improve their passion and talent for theatre in an open and safe environment.


The Tutors Group
Private Tutor
Sep 2008 - Present
In contrast to my primary school teaching experience, my private tutoring allows me to help young people of an older age and greater intellectual development further their learning.
I teach English Literature and Language, History, Theatre Studies and Classical Studies, from Primary, to GCSE and A-Level, Degree level and beyond.
I aid my students in improving their essay structure, spelling and grammar and discussing key thematic and conceptual elements of their required texts.
I plan and prepare lessons and constantly assess students, ensuring they receive high quality tutorage.

Classroom Teachers
Teaching Assistant
Sep 2008 - Oct 2008
I received thoroughly positive feedback from the schools in which I temporarily taught in the weeks preceding my permanent employment at Dog Kennel Hill; colleagues reported me as reliable, enthusiastic and hard-working, and possessing excellent interaction skills with the children themselves.
I gained vast experience with nursery and reception children, thriving on working with early years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have worked as a private tutor for various agencies and also independently, leading my students through 11 plus, 13 plus, GCSE, A Level, Degree level and beyond. I teach English Literature & Language, Drama & Theatre Studies, History and Classics. I also have plenty of experience in working with much younger students (see my CV for details of my classroom and teaching assistant experience) with English as an additional language. I am a confident and enthusiastic individual, with an acute passion for teaching, and have been working with the Tutors Group for over 7 years now. I have worked as a teaching assistant in an Outstanding inner-city primary school, and before training at drama school was planning to take a post-graduate course in primary school teaching, a desire much encouraged by my class teacher and head of school. I have just graduated from my MA in acting at one of the most prolific drama schools in the country (Bristol Old Vic Theatre School); as an experienced dramatic performer and director, I enjoy effectively using these skills to aid children in their learning, leading to a warm, encouraging and happy learning atmosphere. I rapidly and easily create positive, personal relationships with colleagues and children, and believe education should be a creative and inclusive experience for all.

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 an MA in English which I passed with merit, and have recently embarked on a further Master's degree in Literature and Culture in 19th Century Literature and Culture.

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 was born and raised in California and came to London to attend university. I recently received a first class degree in International Business from Middlesex University. I also possess a HND in Business Management in which I received a distinction mark. I work well with others and have tutoring experience that I gained previously during my studies. People that I have tutored say that I am a good teacher and I explain things in a simple easy to understand manner. I have helped many students, and can help with coursework assistance, proofreading, examination preparation, and lecture slide revision.

Teaching Experience:

I am great at writing and have excellent grammatical skills. People that I have tutored always do well in their modules and my pupils tell me that I am a good teacher that can clearly explain information. I have business experience and possess plenty of business knowledge that I gained during my studies. I have a soft approach to tutoring, first learning about the individual in order to create a customized lesson plan to suit the specific needs of the individual. I can meet at a time and place convenient to you and will always prepare my lessons in advance to provide you with the best help possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach people in unique ways depending on the individual. For example if English is knew to the student, I have to explain things in a much more individually focused approach. I can show you methods that I guarantee will raise your marks. For example, during my studies, I learned various tips and tricks which helped me gain my first class degree and I would be happy to share them with you. These tips include shortcuts to researching and referencing, and writing tips for those who experience difficulty while completing reports or essays. I can help you structure your assignments in a academic manner that will impress your teachers and can double check your assignments correcting any mistakes.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English teacher. I am currently working as a tutor within schools, supply teacher and privately teaching English. I have been teaching for over ten years, eight years as a full time teacher and two years as a Tutor/Supply Teacher. I hold a QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), a PGCE English and a 2:1 BA (Honours) degree in English. I hold current CRB/police check and I am eligible to work in the UK.

I have demonstrated a flexible approach to cater for individual learning needs and to differentiate the work accordingly, ensuring the personalisation of teaching and learning. I have created resources and effective strategies to support pupils. I have extensive experiences marking GCSE coursework, assessments, GCSE speaking and listening tests, assessments including Controlled Assessment tests. I have organised and participated in workshops to support planning lessons, class activities etc.

In regards to voluntary work, I have spent a lot of time as a voluntary youth support worker at the Saint Patrick's Youth Club Letterkenny between 1984 and 1990. I have organised table tennis competitions and other sporting activities at the club. I created a special youth club magazine and was one of the co-ordinators of an exchange trip with a German youth club in 1986. As a UNICEF volunteer, I have also organised a special charity fundraising event for UNICEF. In 1988, I helped with the visit of the UNICEF Special Ambassador, Miss Audrey Hepburn to a special UNICEF event at the Westbury Hotel.

Over the years I have played a significant role in an intervention strategy of borderline pupils at key stage 3 and 4. I have extensive experience supporting pupils on a One to One basis and in small groups. I have taught mixed ability pupils in years 7, 8 and 9. I have provided appropriate advice to learners and helped many pupils reach their target level grades.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English for over ten years, eight years as a full time English teacher. I have taught very successfully in two schools during this period and have received positive feedback from parents, colleagues and from Ofsted (who rated me as a good teacher). I am passionate about teaching and committed to helping students make real academic progress. I have helped many pupils reach their target level grades. I have excellent subject knowledge and a broad understanding of the curriculum. I have demonstrated a flexible approach to cater for individual learning needs and to differentiate the work accordingly, ensuring the personalisation of teaching and learning. 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 encourage pupils to work harder by helping them build their confidence. 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 try to be creative, but once an idea is understood, I think the key emphasis for the pupil is to practice to re-enforce confidence. I ensure that work is clearly structured and organised to allow the child not feel overwhelmed, but to understand it clearly. I work well with challenging children, with learning disabilities and with those pupils with behavioural problems. I am understanding and patient tutor who encourages all pupils to make a bigger effort.

I love this profession because you never stop learning and it is wonderful to be in this fortunate position to share my passion for this wonderful subject. I believe a tutor has to be flexible to the childs need.

Personal Description:
I am a Music graduate hoping be a primary or secondary school teacher. Teaching is a passion of mine and and hope to gain and learn as much experience as possible within this sector. I am friendly, with excellent communication skills. When working with pupils, i always want them to succeed and get the grades they need through motivation, encouragement and making them feel they are able to ask questions at any point. The most rewarding part of tutoring is knowing that pupils are achieving good grades and they feel confident enough in school to do the tasks in class.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant and help pupils with their school work and homework. I have supported pupils in many different subjects from Maths, English, Science to Art and Drama. I have developed different ways of teaching through one to one lessons which i currently do at the school with a pupil and have been doing this since February 2012. I have worked previously in a Primary School as a voluntary teaching assistant.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel its important to look at what pupils are currently working on in school which can also include homework they are struggling with and help them with that. I create a friendly environment where they are comfortable enough to ask questions and able to tell me when they still don't understand.

Personal Description:
I have recently returned to the UK after a number of years of teaching overseas, mainly in schools in the Arabian Gulf. I began teaching in the mid-1970's, so have a wealth of experience of a range of educational qualifications. I also have experience in managing schools, up to and including at Principal level.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my career, I have always taught English Language and Literature, mostly to Secondary age students, covering O and A Levels, GCSE and IGCSE, as well as TOEFL, IELTS and US SATs. I have taught large classes in UK secondary schools, as well as small groups in international schools. My students have frequently succeeded up to and beyond their expectations at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one-to-one tutoring helps, above all, to encourage and support a young person, who may be feeling that they are not succeeding in their school studies. I prefer to tutor in the student's home environment as this helps in boosting his or her confidence. I have tutored many students throughout my career, and I would say that my approach is demanding but fair.

Personal Description:
10% discount on bank transfer payments! First lesson FREE!!! Don't miss out on an outstanding teacher for a low price. I believe everyone deserves a fantastic education at a low price!


I am an enthusiastic primary teacher who creates an effective learning atmosphere, by never judging the children I teach. I am good at extending children's learning, whether they need extra support or they are exceeding expectations.

I am passionate about education and want to offer children the best chance in their education.

I lived in Bradford for 4 years whilst completing my degree in teaching before moving to Brighouse when I started my new job in September 2013.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a supply teacher in schools throughout Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield,teaching children from Nursery to Year 6. I have taught several GCSE students, all of which have increased their grades, some from a G to B within only a few months.

I am currently teaching full time at a school in Huddersfield whilst offering one to one tutoring for 10 different children. At present, I have only a few spaces left, so contact me now!

Tutoring Approach:

I work hard to give an excellent tuition service. I provide all the materials required and provide you with up to date assessment details. I am up to date with the new national curriculum and assessments.
I adapt work to the needs of my learners and provide different ways of learning. I understand children learn in different ways. After working with your child for only a few sessions, I can plan sessions which are suited to your child or children.

Personal Description:
I'm a 24 Canadian teacher, now in my second year teaching in London. In addition to teaching, I take part in screenwriting, filmmaking, and online blogging.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently in my second year teaching in England. I have full grasp of the new English GCSE curriculum for both Language and Literature. I teach Years 7-11, to students of all abilities (including EAL and Gifted & Talented students). I am also a GCSE Media Studied teacher, with additional knowledge in Film Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I bring to every tutoring session the same levels of passion and enthusiasm that I exhibit on a daily basis in my classroom. I believe in hands-on learning, with understanding and appreciation of the material studied taking prominence to worrying about a grade or a level. I strongly believe that any student can excel, no matter their background or language, and that with passion and handwork, the desired grade is more than possible.

Personal Description:
MA in English Language, PGCE, experienced examiner of GCSE English Language for AQA exam board (5 years) and five years teaching experience. I have been teaching for five years and have been awarded outstanding by Ofsted in school inspections. I have been teaching for five years now and I have worked in two very different educational contexts. I am passionate about my subject and I also like to use it as a vehicle for students to explore morals and ethics; I am most happy when I feel I am teaching students core skills, as well as broadening their knowledge of our rich history or important current affairs.

Teaching Experience:

I am a graduate of the Teach First programme. Teach First is a charity that tackles educational disadvantage by placing graduates in schools which are in challenging circumstances. As a result of this, I had to learn how to plan and deliver lessons that were fun and engaging, as well as educational. Many of the students in my classes were behind because the school hadn't been able secure permanent staff, so I also had to learn how to accelerate their progress quickly, if they were to have any hope of reaching their true potential. I signed up to examine English Language at GCSE for AQA and this was certainly helpful, as I was able to give my students a big insight into the skills that were required and the mistakes that were often made. I have been an examiner for the last five years, so my knowledge and experience here would certainly benefit someone about to start in year 11. I am passionate about making English as a subject relevant and I am lucky that English provides a lot of opportunities for that; I can teach the core skills using texts from contexts that students will relate too, which really helps to build confidence and maintain engagement. I am currently teaching in a prep school in Sevenoaks because I wanted to see a different side of the education system and this has enabled me to develop my teaching of grammar, especially the grammar that is require for exams, but as always, in an accessible and engaging way.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always aim choose engaging texts for my tutees to work with because I want the sessions to be engaging as well has educational, especially if this is an extra session on top of all the lessons in school.

I think it is important to break down core skills like 'analysis' and 'evaluation', so that students actually understand what is required of them. Often teachers ask their class to 'explain' and analyse and their students have no idea what this actually means or how to do it. I have tried and tested resources, which will support my tutee and help them to do this.

I think it is important to encourage independence in any tutee, but we can't just expect it to happen, just because we have asked. I feel that modelling good outcomes and the writing process, as well as asking students to critique their own work and the work of others is key in helping students to be more independent. This is something I have achieved in a classroom setting and so, I am confident that I can help a tutee to do the same.
