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.

30-40 mile roundtrip - £5
41-50 mile roundtrip - £10

Personal Description:
Hello there,
I am a native English speaker, and I have recently graduated with a First Class Honours in English from a top Russell Group University, which boasts an Internationally recognised English faculty, which means I had the opportunity to benefit from the teachings of influential scholars from the literary world. Students will benefit from my experiences, and I aim to offer an innovative and exciting take on English Literature and Language to ensure that they both achieve and exceed their potential. I am in the process of establishing my own tutoring business, as well as paving out a career path as a freelance writer.

Teaching Experience:

I am a professional English tutor, and have worked with students of all abilities from Secondary School right up until University for over 4 years now. I have spent 4 years tutoring privately in 1-1 and group sessions, as well as online. I have spent 2 years working in a supplementary school, where I worked with large groups of students from 11-19 years old of mixed abilities. I planned my lessons judiciously, set and marked homework, and prepared my GCSE classes for their exams. I have moved students from C grades, to A/B and even A* grades. My experience means that I am familiar with the current GCSE/A Level curriculum. I have also taught students English from all over the globe, not just academically, but also in terms of spoken English. I have much experience proof-reading and editing top University level essays written by students who attend the country's top Academic Institutions. In addition to this, I have accumulated over 250 hours of Skype and Online Tutoring using interactive educational software such as VLE/Blackboard, Moodle and WizIQ. Using these software, I have accumulated over 150 hours of teaching English as a Foreign Language to young learners and adults across the globe, including India, the UAE and Japan, with particular interest in business and interview skills for those wishing to work overseas in predominantly English speaking countries, conversational practices as well as for academic purposes.

I am also a freelance editor and proofreader, and have worked with students from top academic universities to assist them with their essays and dissertations. I have worked with students across a range of disciplines, including Psychology, Sociology, Early Learning Years and Childcare, Criminology and History.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, regardless of whether I am teaching at GCSE, A-Level or University level, or English as a foreign language, I aim to encourage my students to identify with the subjects, to understand the content and what is expected of them by their examiners, but, most importantly, to enjoy them. It would be unwise for me to say that I have a standard tutoring approach for all my students. Instead, I work closely with my tutees, and use my extensive experience to gauge what grades they are working at, pinpointing the areas we need to work on, and then tailoring my lessons to suit their academic and personal educational needs. I can guarantee that regardless of their abilities and potentials, all my students unquestionably thrive and make excellent progress throughout our sessions together.

Personal Description:
I am currently undertaking a funded Ph.D. My research topic is on the role of fools and the philosophy of folly in Shakespeare. My thesis is entitled 'Shakespeare's Folly'. English literature and language are my primary disciplines. I graduated with a first class degree in English Literature and received a high distinction in my Master's degree, which were both from London University. My ultimate objective is to teach and research at university level. I am a keen individual, who values the arts and humanities. I believe education is not simply a means to an end; rather, it offers exciting and new ways of thinking about ourselves and the world around us.

While my background may be English literature, I have an extensive knowledge of history and philosophy having previously tutored both of these subjects up to 'A' level and IB level. One core skill that I have found my tutoring encourages is abstract thought. This is a useful skill both in and out of the class room.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is fairly extensive. I have taught both in this country and abroad. I am most used to individual tutoring assignments in which I achieved a demonstrable improvement in my tutees' grades. In 2010 I lead a group course on "British Culture". This course was, in essence, an history of ideas in this country from the Roman invasion to the present.

I have some experience of leading university seminars. I run the University of London's Adorno reading group and have been published in several academic journals. At the other end of the spectrum, as an undergraduate I worked as a teaching assistant in primary and secondary schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I realise that at Key Stages 1,2, and 3 the emphasis needs to be on passing exams. At this level, I aim to provide an entertaining and relaxed session, which remains focused on providing and reinforcing the information required to pass an exam.

I hesitate, however, to say that my style is informal. I believe that when instructing younger children a certain amount of structure is required. This does not mean that the session needs be short-sighted; rather that we focus on a structured approach to attaining goals in an interesting and fulfilling way. At the higher levels or for mature students my approach is more relaxed. This more laid-back technique is strong preparation for university study.

Personal Description:
I have 20 years of experience in publishing as a writer and editor and am passionate about nurturing English language skills and a love of English literature. I graduated from the University of Stirling with an honours degree in English Literature and have also taught English as a foreign language. My experience in publishing has trained me to write concisely and economically while retaining an imaginative grasp on a piece of work, a skill invaluable in writing essays and examination answers; and especially useful in assisting students with the new written assessments that, in Higher English, comprise 20 per cent of the final examination mark.

I can empathise with students who are tussling with English, relish improving a person's understanding and enjoyment of the subject and take satisfaction from helping to develop their abilities not only in the practical sense of improving their powers of analysis and understanding of texts but in helping them think imaginatively and creatively. As a personal tutor, I have a proven record of upgrading students' performances, especially at Higher level, and have, in several instances, improved so dramatically pupils who were on course to fail Higher English that they went on to achieve an 'A' grade in their Higher examination.

Teaching Experience:

I have three years' tutoring experience. In 2012, 65 per cent of my tutees for Higher English achieved an 'A' grade, with several Band 1s among them. In the 2013 Higher English examination, 90 per cent of my tutees obtained either an A or a B, with slightly more than half of those obtaining an A and several obtaining a distinction in doing so. In 2012 and 2013, all of my tutees at Standard Grade achieved either a band 1 0r a Band 2.

I also have experience teaching English as a Foreign Language, in Egypt, both in private schools and tutoring young people on an individual basis.

In publishing, I was frequently chosen to tutor new entrants to the profession because of my precise use of language and empathetic nature on a one-to-one level.

I studied English Literature to honours level at the University of Stirling and aim to pass on my love of the subject to students through establishing a rapport with them and recommending to them the type of literature that would complement their learning and enable them to derive pleasure from studying English.

Tutoring Approach:

On first meeting, I will discuss with the student how they wish to improve and which aspects of their English studies they feel require greatest attention. I will adapt tutorials to suit the student's needs and course of study. Additional exercises and study guides will be developed together, so that the student can participate with enthusiasm and purpose in the tutorials. This allows me to work to the student's strengths, to help them manage their problem areas more effectively and to derive greater enjoyment from the subject. I will adopt a measured approach and will use my communication skills to ensure that the student understands and absorbs each aspect of the lesson before progressing to the next stage. I aim to make lessons pleasurable and fun as a means of making learning easier, enjoyable and more memorable.

Personal Description:
I graduated from Loughborough University with an honours degree in Industrial Chemistry. I then went on to do three years research in Photochemistry to gain a Masters degree from Kingston University. I also have another masters degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Aston in Birmingham and a Masters in Business Administration from Kingston University. I have over 25 years of industrial experience. During my career I took a pro-active role in training and mentoring new graduates joining the firms I worked for, GEC Telecommunications Ltd and Fujitsu plc.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 14 years of teaching experience in business studies at the Open University teaching at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. I have been tutoring KS1 to KS3, GCSE and A-Level students in Science subjects and Mathematics for 3 years. I also tutor English at KS1 to KS3 and GCSE levels. At present I am tutoring KS3, GCSE and A Level students in English, Science Subjects and Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a mentoring and nurturing approach to teaching. I prepare students both at GCSE and A Levels to sit examinations by the three main examining boards in England, namely, Aqa, OCR and Edexcel. I prefer to tutor from home and only take on a very limited number of students so that I can give my full attention to their examination success. I have tutored students who have been deemed not to be high achievers by their schools, but have subsequently gone on to gaining A grades at GCSE. I am highly motivated and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to get letters from students thanking me for helping them to gain examination success. I tutor from home as I have found students perform best in this situation and I also have access to all my teaching resources as necessary to tailor each lesson to suit a particular students needs. Although I feel tutoring from my home is a good approach I am prepared to travel to a student's home but will of course need to charge travel costs.

Personal Description:
My name is Rose and I am a 26 year old tutor based in South London specialising in English at all levels, essay writing and exam technique. I can also help with Science from 11+, and Drama and Theatre Studies. I have experience of tutoring students with dyslexia, attention deficit disorders, and other special educational needs.

I grew up in Devon and attended Colyton Grammar School, where I obtained A grades in English Literature, Theatre Studies and Biology at A-Level. In 2004 I then went on to study for a BA in English and Drama at the University of Manchester, for which I achieved a double first. Whilst at university, I was involved with the Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force, teaching children aged 13-18.

At university I also started writing and performing comedy as part of a sketch group, and have continued to perform with them for the last four years, taking shows to the Edinburgh Festival every summer. In 2010, our show featured a group of young children aged 7-12, who I taught to perform through workshops and rehearsals. Alongside my career as a performer, I have worked as a teaching assistant in a high school in inner city Manchester, where I focused on one-to-one work with students with special educational needs.

Teaching Experience:

2008-2009 - TEACHING ASSISTANT, The Albion High School, Salford

I worked as a teaching assistant with students ranging from 11-16 in this very challenging inner city school, mainly in the science department. My duties included one-to-one support for students with a range of special educational and behavioural needs and general classroom support for teachers with difficult groups of students. My background in English allowed me to specialise in tutoring students with dyslexia and other special needs to complete coursework, as well as helping them to understand and engage with science as a subject.


2005-2007 - UNDER OFFICER/ INSTRUCTOR, Greater Manchester Army Cadet Force

I worked at the GMACF summer camps supervising and teaching basic military skills to groups of cadets aged 13-18, some of whom had behavioural difficulties. I designed lesson plans and teaching methods for this unique educational opportunity that would preserve discipline whilst maintaining an effective and stimulating learning environment.


2010 - WORKSHOP LEADER, various locations

As part of a show I created in 2010, I taught several different groups of children aged 7-12 the skills needed to perform as part of a professional theatre show. As well as teaching them stagecraft and acting technique, I also encouraged confidence and enjoyment as part of the learning experience

Tutoring Approach:

I am enthusiastic and friendly in my approach, and aim to promote in my students the same enjoyment in their subjects that I experienced whilst studying.

Alongside a focus on building confidence in exam technique and coursework skills, I also place a strong emphasis on encouraging genuine enthusiasm and curiousity around the subjects I teach in order to leave students with not only the skills they need to achieve but also the desire to learn.

Personal Description:
Im calm, patient and devoted.
I like punctuality and assiduity.
I love talking but I'm also a very good listener.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years of tuition and almost three years of class teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I love to teach and I can make learning very simple. with my methods I can get my pupils to love learning.
In my opinion the most important task, which has to be the first thing any teacher should do, is to teach the pupils to love learning. I conquer their affections, earn their respect and expect they see me as a helping friend.
after this hard work is done, teaching is easy.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced teacher with qualified teachers status, who has taught in England and abroad. I have been helping children build up the gaps in their learning level since 1994. I am able to discover various learning styles to help children improve their learning. I am currently a supply teacher teaching in Hertfordshire and in Luton. Due to my vast Experience in teaching in various schools as a supply teacher I have an in depth knowledge of the national curriculum for maths and English for key stage 1 and 2 , from years reception to year 6 and have always received positive feedback from students parents. I am a mother of two teenage boys.

Teaching Experience:

I have a BA.Ed from abroad and soon after graduation I taught English and literature for two years in a secondary school(year 8 and 9). In 2005 after I gained my PGCE primary and have been teaching in primary schools since then. , covering years 1 to 6 in various schools in london . I now teach in stevenage and surrounding towns. I have been a supply teacher and Tutor for over 7 years .

Tutoring Approach:

when teaching children on a one to one basis, I usually start by giving them a general assessment on their reading and problem solving skills. After this I am able to plan for each child on an individual basis on how to help them improve their levels and fill gaps in their learning. Sometimes children come to my home but most times I tend to teach children in their own homes. I normally teach the children for an hour and then give them homework for further skill practice. I also help children and parents draw up a reading and learning timetable which is very easy to follow, this has proven to be very effective in the past, in helping children become independent learners. My approach is to be friendly but professional and help children relax in order to enjoy learning.

Personal Description:
I am currently an Engineering Masters student at the University of Warwick, having just completed my 3rd year of the Bachelors course, for which I have obtained a 1st class with honours overall. Apart from that I can also teach Physics, Maths and English up to A-Level, having achieved good grades in these subjects myself.
I really enjoy helping people do well, and would relish the chance to do so. I delight in having the best friends in the world and can't wait for the road trip in Botswana I'm taking with them soon.

Teaching Experience:

I have only taught on an ad-hoc basis, to GCSE classes as a STEM ambassador (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and on a personal level teaching A-level Maths and Physics to my brother, who is achieving straight A's. Along with STEM I am also a Bloodhound SSC ambassador, which uses the new land speed record attempt and the challenges involved to make science learning more interesting and relevant to the real world, rather than some numbers on a paper.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a relaxed approach whilst gradually building up knowledge wherever possible, but also directing the knowledge to good exam and technique which I am now well practiced in. Learning should be fun and imaginative, which is why I personally try to bring enthusiasm to the table and prepare meticulously so that I am in the best position to help. I strive to hone my interpersonal skills and communicative ability so that I can recognise the strengths of each person, so that their strengths can be used to vanquish any weaknesses.

Personal Description:
I attended Twycross House School from age 6-18 and attained 9A*s at GCSE and AABA at A Level. I then went on to study at University of Bristol and I graduated with a BA English and Drama (2:1). Since graduating I work as a nanny and tutor, children's theatre workshop leader and professionally as an actress and writer.

Teaching Experience:

My specialist subjects are 5+, 7+ and 11+. I also teach GSCE English, elocution lessons and carry out sessions for general homework help. I have helped my students raise their grades, improve their confidence and find new ways of learning.

Current jobs:

Weekly play dates and 7+ prep with 6yr old twins Alessandro and Allegra.

5+ prep (Habs) and elocution lessons for 4yr old Hana.

11+ (North London) prep and homework help for 9yr old Camille.

7+ sessions: Weekly sessions with 6 year old Kynan in preparation for Colet Court entrance exams, with a focus on story writing and comprehension.

Past Jobs

EFL with 5yrr old French twins, Maddy and Joseph: To improve the twins´ grasp of the English language I constructed a weekly programme where we played games, read books, sang songs and engaged in practical activities which incorporate practical conversation and vocabulary. I set them fun weekly skills tests which demonstrated their progress and helped their relationship as they work together as a team. (June - July 2013)

(Feb 2012) Alistair Ekrami, GCSE German - Alistair seemed shy and unconfident but I worked on bringing him out of his shell and talking about things we had in common. He then had lots to talk about in German and was more assertive in written work. We worked on verb tenses and grammar particularly. I saw an improvement in just two sessions.

(November 2011- Present) Salman, Primary School, all subjects - Salman excels at mathmatics but struggles with literacy and concentration. I spend time encouraging him to take more care over his written work and have seen a real improvement in spelling and handwriting. He benefits particularly from creative and kinesthetic teaching techniques.

Louise, GSCE German (OCR). Work focussed on her oral and listening practice. Louise was nervous and scared to speak in German but by the end of our sessions she was confident and competent. We built up to speaking in conversation about subjects which she found interesting engaging. Naturally her written work, vocabulary and grammar came on leaps and bounds along with her confidence.

Katie, GCSE English (OCR). Katie needed help with her War Poetry module. A logically minded student who I encouraged to work and think more imaginatively. She found a genuine interest in literature.

Tristan, GCSE Latin (OCR). A challenging student who needed help with translations and unseens. Tristan had a short attention span so I worked in regular breaks and quick bursts of work which worked very well. He greatly improved his grammar and vocabulary.

4-11 year olds at Summer Sports Camp. I worked as a team leader co-ordinating schedules, monitoring the children during their breaks and assisting coaches.

Theatre Workshop Leader for 4-8 years at Pinvin School, Worcestershire. Interactive and collaborative exercises, songs and games resulting in performance.

Tutoring Approach:

I have tutored English, Latin and German to GCSE level for the past 3 years. I helped my students raise their grades, improve their confidence and find new ways of studying.

I come from an arts background having graduated from University of Bristol with a 2:1 in BA English and Drama and then going on to study Postgraduate Acting at Drama Studio London.

My desire to tutor evolves from my own personal schooling experiences. I attended a small private school (Twycross House School) from 3 to 18 years which boasted an intimate and academic atmosphere where classes consisted of three pupils to one teacher, sometimes teaching was even one to one. I am eager to teach in the style I personally thrived under and a system which I believe is the best.

In my opinion a good tutor is someone who creates an open, creative and positive space, outside of the school classroom, where the student feels confident in trying new things and is not afraid or embarrassed to get things wrong.

I have spent a lot of time in the company of children as a tutor, nanny and workshop leader and thus understand the demands of different age groups and can always find a way to relate and work with them successfully. I aim to inject new energy and find new strategies that will help my student get the best results.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary teacher who also holds degrees in history and law. I am incredibly passionate about education and learning, and believe I can capture your interest and enthusiasm for my subjects. Learning should be fun after all!

I am professional alongside being flexible, approachable and friendly. My career history spans industries including education, childcare, law, retail, luxury goods and sport.

My hobbies include reading, creative writing, history, art and tennis.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary teacher with over 5 years working experience in the education industry. I have worked in early years, primary, secondary and higher education settings. As a result, I have experience across a wide age range of learners.

I am confident in teaching the full range of primary curriculum subjects, as well as English, history and law to higher levels. For my teacher training in primary education, I was classed as a 'very good to outstanding' teacher.

I have also been a tennis coach and a university student mentor (history), where I assisted fellow students with any aspect of their studies including subject knowledge and pastoral concerns.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to ensure my learners have personalised provision - this means we cover topics and progress at a pace suitable to your personal learning needs.

I get to know my learners as individuals. I take the time to build up a rapport and find out their interests and passions, which I then attempt to bring into my planning and lessons. I find this to be hugely motivational. You will learn best if you are motivated and enjoying the topics!

I am happy to tutor from my own home, where I have an office space specifically set up for teaching, or over the Internet.

Personal Description:
I am a warm, friendly and outgoing person with an excellent ability to build a rapport with my students. I love languages and am passionate in particular about English. I speak Welsh to a good level as well as some Spanish and French. I love literature and drama and am adept at finding new and unique pieces and quite often construct my own writing. I love working with children and find great joy in helping them to succeed and achieve their goals. I find working with children is exciting and no 2 days are the same. Mainly I love working with children because I often find that they teach me as much as I teach them!

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced tutor with a history of achieving results. I am a qualified primary teacher with experience of tutoring in KS2 and KS3. I have experience tutoring children who are looked after by the local authority, children who have additional learning needs and children who are gifted and require further stretch and challenge. I have several summer's experience teaching at English summer schools for children from France or Spain and as a result my technical knowledge of English language is excellent.

I also have experience of teaching small classes of adults and am able to adapt my teaching and lessons to suit a more adult approach.

Prior to teaching I worked as a supply TA as a range of local schools and as a result have a wealth of experience with all kinds of children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring in one word is fun. As a teacher I know how hard children work in school and therefore understand that any extra sessions need to be fun and active to keep their attention. I always do an introductory session where the tutee and I simply get to know each other through fun activities. I then use this information to personally tailor the sessions to the needs and interests of that person. I find this helps to engage even the most reluctant learners and enables them to get to grips with the material.

Personal Description:
My name is Laura, I am a 31 year old resting professional actress. I have two young daughters who will be attending school full-time in September 2013 and so I am eager to once more put my talents to good use.

I am a published poet, I write plays and screen plays also and am currently one of the Student ambassadors for the Royal Opera House as in my spare time I also study for a degree in English Literature and Language; my other passion apart from acting.

I also enjoy baking and regularly make decorative cakes and homemade treats.

Teaching Experience:

I have coached many people using drama to build confidence, to audition for drama school or even for help with public speaking, including the difficult task of speaking at funerals.

My experience includes extensive workshops and drama sessions with children from the ages of 4-18 on issues such as arson, road safety and bullying, with the support of the relevant county's emergency services. I have worked freelance as an improvisation, voice/speech and script tutor at the much acclaimed drama school, The Actor Works, in Wapping, home to the annual OffCut festival.

Apart from my drama and theatre tutelage, I have helped many young people, including many 16-18 year olds with coursework, exam preparation, text and poetry analysis and building confidence in their ability to use the English language.

Tutoring Approach:

I am easy to get on with, however you will get homework and I expect as much determination and commitment to me and our sessions as I will give to you. We will write a plan together in the first session and regularly review it to make sure we are on track.

Whatever the goal, be it confidence building, exam preparation, full on performance, or just for fun, I will help you achieve it.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from Durham University (Hatfield College) with a First Class degree in English Literature. During my time at the department, which was this year ranked top in the country, I explored subjects including Old English, Shakespeare, Victorian fiction and American poetry, and completed a First Class dissertation in contemporary nature writing. In my second year, I won an academic prize from my college, and this year won The Scholar's inaugural nationwide academic essay competition, for an essay entitled 'Who Killed the Novel?'

In my spare time, I carry out projects in theatre, through my own company Kronos Productions, as well as working with others. Recent projects have included three successive years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a three week tour of the United States. Frequently engaging with dramatic texts in a theatrical context allows me to apply my academic skills pragmatically, and to explore new and innovative forms of theatre. I also enjoy reviewing, becoming editor of my university's theatre reviewing platform, and in 2008 being shortlisted for The Guardian's Young Arts Critic award. Alongside tutoring, I split my time between working in theatre, and editing an online arts publication.

Teaching Experience:

- Tutoring GCSE and A-Level English Literature and English Language students on a one-one or two-one basis. (2008-present)

- Teaching English language to young Ethiopians (aged 14-19) in schools in the country, as part of a placement with Link Ethiopia. (2010)

- Delivering training in secondary schools, colleges and special educational needs schools as part of my work with the English Secondary Students' Association. (2008-9)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that students of all ages and abilities should be encouraged to stretch themselves, to engage creatively with their subject, and to find ways to enjoy the learning experience. I hope to engender the same enthusiasm I feel for my subject in all those I teach.

English Literature: Following a detailed consultation with both the student and the syllabus in question, I initially focus on close analysis of samples of writing in order to develop key skills. This will then move to the broader application of these skills upon studied texts, essay planning and structuring, and finally on to essay writing itself.

English (Foreign Language): An initial session establishes areas of language that need work, involving conversation, written and grammatical tests and a survey of the student's understanding of linguistics. Further sessions are normally based around a theme, and encompass grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and comprehension, dependent on the particular needs of the student.

I am very happy to teach face-to-face, online, or a combination of the two. Where required, I will mark essays and provide detailed feedback on areas that can be improved.
