Personal Description:
APPOINTMENT SLOTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE: Monday 7.45pm onwards, the coming Easter Holiday.

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 fifth 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 four years of 11 Plus entrance, including September 2013, 12 out of 22 students passed. This is in keeping with my predictions where proportions are concerned. I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, my 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts.

I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, my 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts.

I have taught numerous syllabi: in the last five 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 (September 2013) I have 17 tutees in total: one A-level tutee, one GCSE English tutee, one home-schooled GCSE tutee for both English and Maths, two Key Stage 3 Maths tutees, one Key Stage 3 English tutee, two 11 Plus tutees, two Primary School Maths tutees and two Primay School Maths and English 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

Personal Description:
I tutor from my comfortable home in Bishopston, BS7 and can do home visits locally where needed.

Teaching Experience:

Working full time in London and Bristol secondary schools for 5 years teaching English Language and Literature enabled me to stretch students of all abilities. After having my own family I returned to the challenges of secondary supply teaching. I have also worked as a social science researcher for Cardiff University in schools and have strong experience in the subject of Sociology. I am also a qualified, practising counsellor so have strong experience in the subject of Psychology. I worked as an examiner for the Midland Examining Group for 7 years on the GCSE Literature paper.

Tutoring Approach:

My personal qualities and professional training enable me to work with any individual student and their own motivation, however latent. I am experienced at tailoring work to the needs of the student and the requirements of the examining body. I would be happy to help with assignments, homework, exam preparation etc. but would also like to agree additional beneficial goals with the student to aid progress between tutoring sessions. I can liaise effectively with the students own subject teacher where this would be beneficial to progress.

Personal Description:
I am a 30 year old fully registered male teacher. I am currently a Primary 4 teacher in Glengowan Primary, Larkhall, South Lanarkshire. I am a young, enthusiastic and motivated teacher willing to take on the role of tutoring primary school aged children. I enjoy participating in and viewing a wide range of sports and like reading, listening to music and keeping fit in my spare time.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified from university as a registered and Disclosure checked teacher in June 2008. Prior to my permanent teaching appointment I completed my probation year in Mount Cameron Primary, East Kilbride. I was responsible for the planning and organisation of a coherent, progressive and active curriculum programme for a Primary 6 class. Between August 2009 and June 2010 I worked between Spittal and Bankhead primaries in Rutherglen. At Spittal Primary I was responsible for teaching PE, drama, RME and art to every stage in the school. At Bankhead Primary I taught Primary 6. I covered a maternity leave vacancy in Larkhall for 9 months between November 2010 and June 2011 before being offered a permanent contract in the same school. I also have general teaching experience across all stages of primary education due to covering classes throughout the year. Prior to qualifying from University, I worked as a support assistant between two schools in Cambuslang. This allowed me to gain valuable knowledge of working with children who required additional support on a one to one basis and group setting. I have experience of addressing individual pupil needs and throughout my short teaching career, have been able to implement strategies to assist each pupil in my care.

Tutoring Approach:

I am willing to provide children extra support in areas of the primary curriculum. I am able to provide appropriate resources and learning strategies to meet the needs of a child's learning. I am prepared to travel to provide this support in a fun, enthusiastic and motivating manner.

Personal Description:
Cambridge graduate offering private tuition in Latin, English (literature and language), and Politics.

I specialize in coaching students through GCSE/A level and preparing them for public examinations.

I graduated with a 1st class degree in English from the University of Cambridge (Girton College) in 2008 and recently completed a Masters in Medieval Literature and History at the University of York.

During both of my degrees, I took a number of papers in Latin language and literature. I also have 'A' grades in A-level Latin and A-level Politics.

I currently work in publishing.

Teaching Experience:

Since moving to London in 2010 I have tutored students preparing for public examinations in Latin and English.

During the academic year 2008-2009 I worked as a boarding house tutor at Sherborne International College. My duties included aiding the students with their academic work, P.E. teaching, English language teaching, and general pastoral care.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:

Puzzled by perfect participles?
Confused by conjugations?
...and what on earth is a gerundive?

Let's face it, studying Latin can be difficult, but it is the challenge which makes it such a rewarding subject.

My approach to teaching Latin is to develop translation skills whilst reinforcing the key building blocks of grammar. I endeavour to work at the student's own pace and tailor my sessions to complement school work.

English:

I hope that my passion for English will encourage students to develop their own skills in the subject. I have spent the last 5 years of my life studying and responding to texts and enjoy sharing my knowledge and insight.

It is difficult to offer a single "approach to tutoring" as I believe the right teaching method depends entirely on the interests, level, and personality of the individual student.

I am happy to accept students preparing for GCSE, AS, or A level examinations. My philosophy is that exam success relies on a combination of close understanding of the text, ability to respond independently, and proper exam technique.

Interviews:

I am also available to tutor students preparing for university entrance interviews (in particular Oxbridge). Having experienced the process first-hand, I feel I am well positioned to offer meaningful advice on how a candidate can impress during the application and interview process. I am willing to conduct mock interviews.

Personal Description:
After more than twenty years of proven experience as teacher, tutor and social worker with a psychological background I would be the right person for supporting you.

I achieved my UK teaching qualification (PTLLS Level 4, City & Guilds) in July 2012.

I have experience in teaching German, Maths and English since more than 25 years and all my students in the UK have improved at least 2 grades since I have been teaching them.

I have extensive experience in working with students from many backgrounds and abilities.

I demonstrate meticulous attention to detail and have a tremendous amount of empathy.

I deal with students patiently, to advise and support them in a respectful way and tailor my lessons to the individual needs and aims of the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years experience in tutoring, children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I have the ability to motivate children and make them mentally stronger.

I try to find their individual strengths, instead of emphasizing their weaknesses. In this way I support the self- confidence of the child, and enlarge the inner motivation to learn, to study - and to enjoy it.

The most important skills I have are:

my patience, my creativity, my variety of teaching methods and my sense of humor.

Personal Description:
I'm an Oxford graduate (B.A. (Hons), M.St.) with a real passion for language and its place within human culture. I have also lived and worked in Italy, France and Spain.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years' worth of varied experience. I am a qualified teacher of Modern Languages and currently work in a top Manchester school. Previously, I have worked full time as a tutor through some of London's top agencies, including Keystone Tutors and Enjoy Education. I have also taught translation (Italian to English) for St John's and Christ Church Colleges, Oxford, and tutored English Language, English Literature, French, Italian, Spanish and History for GCSE and A level. I have also been teaching English as a Foreign Language for over five years.

In addition, I have considerable experience teaching younger children literacy and foreign languages. I have particular experience of tutoring children who have studied in non-Anglophone environments and schools (especially French, Italian and Russian) as they prepare for examinations in English.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe it is important to reinforce students' existing knowledge, while continuing to push the boundaries of their learning. Furthermore, I encourage a holistic approach when tutoring and entice students to see links across different fields and subjects, thereby heightening the value of their tuition and its use value.

I encourage the study of language and literature together, focusing on working very closely with particular texts while still seeing them within the broader parameters of literature as a whole. It is my belief that neither language nor literature could or should be entirely separated from the other.

With regard to language specifically, I encourage spoken and written fluency by building upon a solid framework of linguistic instruction and cultural competence. I also emphasise both the academic and practical merits of studying a foreign language.

Personal Description:
I have enjoyed working with children in teaching and pastoral roles for more than seven years. I have completed Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in counselling training, and I am currently working towards my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling; as a result I have developed valuable listening skills. My other interests include patchwork sewing and baking. I have a calm and gentle approach, and I have a proven ability to make children feel at ease when working with me.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years experience of working in primary schools across all age-ranges. My various roles have included teaching: all subjects in whole class groups; extra basic skills support in small groups; and one-to-one phonics and spellings lessons. I have helped children to achieve excellent progress in all my roles.

In my experience as a private tutor for almost four years, I have tutored children between the ages of six and eleven, including preparation for SATs and eleven plus tests. I have excellent references which highlight children's significant progress and increased confidence since working with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor tutoring to the individual child, focusing on their strengths and preferred learning styles. I use games to reinforce concepts while making learning enjoyable. I offer rewards, such as stickers and certificates, to motivate and recognise children's achievements. All my lessons are thoroughly planned and prepared, and regular assessment informs planning for later lessons.

Targets are set at an initial meeting and are reviewed on a termly basis, when new targets may be set. A written report is given to parents and carers at the end of each term. Reductions in fees are offered if you are able to pay for a block of lessons in advance.

I achieved high grades (A*-B) in my GCSEs which were in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, French, Spanish, Latin, ICT, English (Lit. and Lang.) and Religious Studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students ranging from 3 to 15 years old in subjects such as Maths, Physics and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be based on how you want to do it. I will prepare my own ideas and plans but they will be more along the lines of "points to cover" rather than a lesson plan. If you need my help, just send me a text or an email anytime. We will aim to set a goal together to work towards, whether it be getting a higher grade or just feeling more confident in a subject.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from Oxford University (Christ Church) with a BA (Hons) in History of Art, and am now reading for an MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute. Aside from studying I am learning Italian, enjoy playing piano and keeping up to date with current exhibitions, plays and concerts. I travel as widely as possible and enjoy enriching my academic work with the unique experiences and case studies such travel may afford.

Teaching Experience:

Since August this year I have been tutoring a number of clients in London at KS3 and GCSE level, in English, Sciences and Mathematics.
Additionally, during my A Level year I tutored of GCSE students, gaining a 100% A -C pass rate.

Tutoring Approach:

Having attended some of the most academically intensive institutions in the country, I am well suited to provide academic support and guidance to those wishing to improve their achievement, from primary to degree level.
I believe that the role of a private tutor is to create a tailor made, interactive and stimulating environment in order to help students grow and explore within their subject. I believe instilling confidence is key to this approach - I am a patient, friendly and approachable tutor and work hard to encourage an atmosphere in which honest discussion and a lack of self consciousness when learning are paramount. I provide support for all aspects of learning, from discussing homework to improving core skills.

I am familiar with exam board requirements for each subject, and as a tutor work towards success in exams, but also towards a greater enrichment above and beyond curricula.

Personal Description:
Upon leaving the Royal Air Force after an eleven year long career serving as an engineer both at home and overseas, I followed a busy career in Hospitality Management. A chance reading of the local press pointed me in the direction of university. After completing a degree in English, I embarked on a career in teaching - a vocation which took me to the Middle East. Travel is a passion, a result of which was my becoming a published author (2011).

Teaching Experience:

Experienced teacher of English at UK secondary/college level and English as a second language in UK schools and businesses.
Five years' teaching experience at secondary/college level -English, SAT, TOEFL, History, Geography for international schools in the United Arab Emirates.
Adult learning classes - teaching English as a second language for social and business use.

Tutoring Approach:

Understand the reasons that my students want to learn; tailor tutoring to specifically target these aims. Regularly review and revise subject/topic before moving onto the next stage. Ultimately, learning should be fun.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable English Literature Masters student at the University of Liverpool. I have been tutoring alongside work and study commitments for the past eighteen months, and have taught English from Primary to University level. I achieved a high 2:1 for my undergraduate degree, and I am currently on track to receive a distinction for my MA. I can offer pupils useful advice for any essay based subjects in terms of style, structure and content, and can explain techniques and texts in a coherent and accessible way. I have also helped foreign students improve their English, and can offer essay grammar checking services.

Teaching Experience:

I completed a work placement in the English department of a secondary school last summer, assisting pupils with their set tasks, answering questions and taking charge of the class when the teacher left the room. This instilled my enthusiasm for teaching, and I hope to eventually become an English teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to each individual. I think the most important thing is to understand the needs and requirements of each pupil, and adapt your approach accordingly. As a naturally friendly and open person, I like to get to know my tutees and treat them as equals, listening to their opinions and input. That way, the pupil is more likely to respond to my advice and value my coaching.

Personal Description:
I decided to start tutoring after my experience in trying to get tutors for my own children. As a professional working internationally I thought it would be easy to hand over this important element of their education to someone with both experience and patience. My notion was quickly turned on its head. The Tutors I found taught textbook style with the one shoe fits all approach. My children and others didn't fit into that mould. I very quickly realised that I could do a better job and took the role in house, initially teaching my own daughters before extending out to their friends.
To date I have tutored over 50 children who have gone onto their chosen schools and streams. I believe that tutoring should be about delivering skills to children that they can carry with them throughout their young lives and provide a solid platform on which to develop.

Teaching Experience:

Have tutored key stage 2 and 3.
11 plus students and common entrance applicants.
Recently started to tutor mildly dyslexic students in English comprehension and Language.
Currently writing essays for publication in English Literature and Sociology and Business GCSE and AS level. As well as E papers for 11 plus students.

Tutoring Approach:

I love seeing peoples enthusiasm toward a subject which I also share the same excitement towards however I am also passionate about helping people who may need help or are looking for methods to improve their skills in these topics.

Personal Description:
I am a hugely enthusiastic and self motivated teacher with a passion for learning and creativity. I am a strong believer that education should be a personalised experience - after all we're all different! I take delight in finding out different learning styles and using my creativity and imagination to foster a safe and nurturing learning environment. My biggest goal in life is to make a different to every child, or adult that I have the privilege to teach.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a primary school teacher with Infant age children, but have previously worked with Junior age children. I have a strong background in special educational needs, in part due to the experience with my classes and also due to a specialism I took when qualifying.

Tutoring Approach:

The best and most effective way to tutor is to get to know the child's needs first and where they aim to be. This of course includes parental vision and guidance! I take into account all these things, and formulate a learning journey to best achieve this. By understanding the personality of a learner I can better meet their needs in a way that will be engaging and thus responsive.

Personal Description:
For over 7 years I have been teaching English, Literacy and Reading. My aim is to help each student reach their potential through tailored lessons designed to build confidence as well as make learning enjoyable. I own an Enhanced CRB which is clear.

Teaching Experience:

For over 7 years I have been teaching English, Literacy and Reading from in and out of my own home.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to help each student reach their potential through tailored lessons designed to build confidence as well as make learning enjoyable. I have a strong belief that for people of all ages, learning can be fun, and if you enjoy the process, you are much more likely to learn something!

I am extremely enthusiastic when it comes to teaching. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing a student achieve what they set out to do, be it a particular grade they need to obtain or a skill they need to develop. Often lessons tend to last a little longer than the initial hour as I am simply not in this for the money- my satisfaction comes from watching my students achieve and I don't mind eating into my own time by a few more minutes to make sure that happens.

Due to several requests from current and former students, I am now also happy to discuss teaching other subjects outside of English. Please simply give me a call to discuss this.

Testimonials:

'David is extremely hard working and one of the most enthusiastic people we've seen when it comes to teaching. It quickly got to the point where our son was looking forward to his lessons and was disappointed when when we had to reschedule the odd one. Would def recommend.'

-Mohammed Akbar, Father of Hassan

'Really happy with Mr Edon's work. Got results and lessons seemed to be very creative.'

-Janet Cole, Mother of Luke

'Let me start off by saying that I was embarrassed to approach a tutor at first. I have had reading and writing difficulties since I was very young but David ensured full anonymity and built my confidence to a very high level. He has been teaching me once a week for 2 years now. I have learnt more than I ever did at school in a much shorter space of time.'

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 am a University of Warwick graduate from Manchester with a passion for literature and theatre. I have always had a thirst for learning and I wish to maintain my enthusiasm for education through the means of tutoring.

I graduated from university in 2011 with a solid degree in English and Theatre Studies. On completion of my degree I went on to work as an editorial manager for a national company before moving to London to complete a postgraduate qualification in Journalism.

I now work in the television industry in a role that allows me to exercise both a passion for writing as well as a keen eye for creative and editorial detail.

Both my colleagues and friends consider me to be a reliable, focused and hardworking person who is always extremely dedicated to the task in hand.

Teaching Experience:

As a student I took part in a school reading scheme which allowed me to nurture and develop the reading skills of young primary school children. This role required patience and understanding as well as a well-rounded strategy to ensure the children were progressing week by week.

In 2011, the University of Warwick offered me a sponsored teaching position in Tanzania, Africa, during a university vacation. Teaching English as a foreign language was extremely challenging but the experience provided me with invaluable teaching skills that I am now able to exercise as a home tutor.

During my time in Tanzania I taught classes of up to 40 children, all varying in age. I also provided one-to-one tuition at the after-school English club. During this time it was essential that my class preparation was always diverse and creative to ensure that the children were always engaged and motivated.

As a student at university I became heavily involved with the Warwick Arts Centre where I would often direct and produce plays whilst also acting as dramaturg for more complex theatre texts. This experience means that I am now fully able to help young students of English and Drama get to grips with the underlying motives behind a writer's choice of words, themes and motives.

My Undergraduate dissertation was based on Shakespeare's 'The Taming of the Shrew' and so I would be well suited to students who may at some point need extra tuition on theatre modules as well 16th/17th Century Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that academic success is born out of a passion for learning and the acquisition of knowledge. As somebody who enjoys the art of learning, I would bring this passion to the student's table and work to find out what drives and motivates the pupil.

As a tutor I would always strive to work both with and alongside the student and would aim to bring something new and invigorating to every lesson.

My goal is to bring out and nurture a passionate and informed understanding in every student by inviting them to look at their studies from a new and informed angle.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 2nd year Financial Economics student at the University of Kent, so I will be be free to tutor during the Christmas, Easter and summer holidays.

My availability:
20th December until 19th January
14th April until 30th April
12th June until late September

I studied maths, further maths, computing and economics at A-level and AS level and have a keen interest in economics and maths.

Teaching Experience:

During my GCSE and final year at my sixth form, I was appointed as a maths workshop mentor. This consisted of me helping the AS maths students who were having difficulties with their homework and exam questions etc. I have previously tutored young students for maths and english, who have improved their performance over time.

Tutoring Approach:

In general students come up to me with a list of questions that they might be struggling with and we'd work through them together providing a step to step method as to how to approach and solve the problems. In addition if a student is completely stuck on a topic then I am also willing to explain it from the basics and build on their understanding. :)

Personal Description:
I am a private tutor based in south Liverpool, available to give lessons between July and October 2014. I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Oxford, studying English Language and Literature. I specialise in teaching English, History, Religious Studies, and Philosophy.

Teaching Experience:

I am a recent A Level student with a good knowledge of the syllabuses and expectations of exam boards. I have experience as a youth group leader between 2010 and 2013.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a rigorous and systematic approach to tutoring at all levels, combining a targeted understanding of exam skills with a broader knowledge of the subjects I teach. I recognise that the skills required to produce a truly distinctive essay or analysis are often drawn from a wider base of knowledge than that which can be provided through school education alone. As a tutor I aim to teach my students how to think independently, be inquisitive and original, and develop a fluid and intelligent written style which will distinguish their answers from all others.
