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:
After reading English at the University of Cambridge I completed a masters at the University of London and now work as a tutor and also as a freelance theatre director. Most recently I have been working on a production for the Royal Shakespeare Company and teaching English and Drama to private students.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for the past five years and have a strong track record for helping students to achieve their desired grades and receive places at some of the top schools and universities in the country. Most of the students I have taught have been aged between 10 and 18, although I do also have experience teaching younger pupils and adults.
Further to private tutoring I have a great deal of experience in workshop leading and have taught groups at a wide variety of institutions including Sheffield Theatres, RSC, Malvern Theatres, NODA, the University of Cambridge, and Performance Industry Platform.

Tutoring Approach:

Although I always adapt my teaching methods to the particular needs of each student, the areas I mostly focus on include: sharpening critical and analytical skills; expanding students' vocabulary and understanding of literary terms; essay planning, structuring and writing; revision and examination techniques and building confidence. My own passion for literature and drama feeds into my teaching work and as well as aiming to help students achieve high standards in their academic studies, I also endeavour to encourage them to develop a long term interest in novels, poetry and plays. By tailoring my lessons to the individual student I hope to make each session engaging, enjoyable, and both creatively and intellectually stimulating.

Personal Description:
I began tutoring during my Philosophy of Science MSc at the London School of Economics. Subsequently I decided to pursue a career in science and began to train as a geologist at Birkbeck College, University of London in a 4-year degree program while continuing to work as a tutor. Over the course of the last 3 years my teaching career gained momentum and I made the decision to pause my second degree to focus on teaching.

Teaching Experience:

Since graduating I have gained thousands of hours of tutoring experience over a period of 4 years. While I specialise in teaching maths at 11+, 13+ and GCSE level, I also have a wealth of experience in teaching sciences (13+, GCSE), maths (A-level), English (11+, 13+, GCSE, A-level) and philosophy (A-level and degree level). Alongside my independent work I am a senior tutor at three high end London tuition agencies.*

I have successfully prepared students for entry into a wide range of schools including Bancroft, Channing, City of London, Eton, Forest, Francis Holland, Godolphin and Latymer School, Haberdashers', Highgate, North London Collegiate School, Queen's College, Sevenoaks, South Hampstead, St. Paul's and UCS.

I have worked as an assessor for a London tuition agency since 2010. I conduct assessments which potential tutors must pass before they are allowed to work for the agency. Assessing other tutors has given me excellent insights as to how to improve my own teaching.



*I am not permitted to name these here, but I can provide references once contact details are exchanged.

Tutoring Approach:

The key to my approach is keeping the student's mind as active as possible. My lessons are extremely questions-based and seek to guide a student to explore concepts rather than merely deposit information. Since this approach requires more engagement from the pupil, the material is better retained and more thoroughly understood.

I find the science of memory fascinating and have carefully researched and tested various memory techniques that I now find invaluable during my lessons. The luxury of one-to-one tuition is that each lesson can be perfectly tailored to the individual student. Over the first few sessions, I determine how the pupil best absorbs information and what teaching style they find the most engaging. The result is highly efficient learning which generally manages to be good fun as well.

Outside of classes I am happy to answer emailed questions and to mark small amounts of homework free of charge. Detailed proof reading and feedback for coursework assignments for those I do not regularly teach is charged at my hourly rate. Group sessions are available the charge is 50% of the normal fee for each additional student.

Personal Description:
I am a committed teacher who loves teaching across many areas. I enjoying injecting my creative streak into lessons. I have qualified teacher status and I teach in schools on a day to basis.

Teaching Experience:

I have 6 years teaching experience across many age ranges. I have recently undertaken Read, Write, Inc training - a programme geared towards developing readers and writers.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe children need to learn with a hands on approach, when they are doing they are learning.

Want to help your child move from a 2c to a 2b or a 1b to a 1a? Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of extra help that the teacher can't always give. Maybe your child is doing well in school and you feel they are restricted by the curriculum.

Lessons are tailored to each students needs, reading, numeracy and literacy are covered using structured schemes and fun activities. The lessons are not restricted by the curriculum so your child could be learning things they wouldn't learn until the next academic year or catching up on concepts not yet grasped. Homework can also be set.

I have recently begun writing guided reading books designed to improve writing by identifying and practising the core elements (Riley's Writers - available on Amazon) as well as creating resource games so children can practise key skills in a fun way that promotes repetition (essential for learning many aspects of literacy and numeracy).

All learning takes place in my home. Slots are available weekdays, evenings, weekends and school holidays. Sessions are 45 minutes long.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified, experienced Primary school teacher able to provide private tuition in English and Maths to children aged 6-11.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 6 years' full time teaching experience in a Primary school classroom, plus 6 years' experience in 1:1 private tuition to a range of children.

Some of these children have had a range of special educational needs (including hearing impairments, dyslexia, ASD) as well as gifted and talented children.

I have also taught English as a Foreign Language to European students.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a warm, can-do approach to learning to encourage all children to believe that they can succeed. Patience is one of my strongest suits! Where possible, I try to link in my sessions with topic areas that the child is currently following at school as well as the child's own interests and hobbies.

My wide experience of the primary curriculum and the expectations of children's learning and progress within it make me best placed to provide effective, quality tuition sessions that boost the child's confidence and support them with terminology and learning areas that will be familiar to them from school.

Personal Description:
I am a fourth year medical student at Imperial College London. Having recently been through high school and excelled in both GCSEs and A-levels, I know what it requires for a student to perform to the best of their ability. I am a strong believer that with hard work and the right guidance, most students can go on to achieve excellent grades.

Teaching Experience:

During my A-levels, I have helped teach younger students in Geography and Maths classes, but the majority of my teaching experience has been with my two younger brothers. I have worked very hard with them over the years and take pride in the fact that they too performed exceptionally well at school through my help.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make my lessons interactive, explaining complex ideas in the simplest and most interesting way possible. I strongly believe that student must first develop a good conceptual understanding of the subject before refining their exam technique. I will work hard for my students and expect them to do the same in their studies.

Personal Description:
I am a family man, married 10 years to my wife Mel, with 3 beautiful daughters. I have been tutoring in the South Wales area since 1992 after graduating in Chemical Engineering with 2nd (Hons) Degree from University of Glamorgan. My hobbies include wordwide travel, Triathlon, Motorcycles/Cars and anything to do with science and maths.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating in Summer 1992 with an Honours Degree in Chemical & Process Engineering from the University of Glamorgan, I set up my tutoring business to assist parents & pupils with examination preparation, who felt they were being let down by the educational system.

I worked as an examiner for the WJEC from 1997 to 2002 marking Maths papers.

I currently teach on a 1-2-1 basis or in small groups, usually {but not exclusively} in the privacy of the pupils home, in the following subjects:-

* Key stages 1 to 4 {GCSE} in Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Engineering, Design and Technology, Electronics.

* 'A' Levels {GCE} in Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics

* BTEC Engineering, Nursing & Health Care courses, Paramedics, Sports Science.

* Degrees in Engineering - Chemical, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Aerospace, and Nursing.

* UKCAT Entrance exams to Medicine and Dental school.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly prepare students for examinations using past paper practise to build up their self confidence and develop the ability to read and digest each exam question.

During the interim term time, I conduct 'student led' lessons, where each of my pupils is able to tell me what they want to learn; whether it be new material, homework assistance or revision of old topics.

I structure my lessons this way because I teach many different students of varying abilities, who are studying at different levels and using different exam boards e.g. WJEC, OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate of Durham (BA History), and UCL (MA Central and South Eastern European Studies). I spent the last three academic years studying and tutoring.

My main areas of interest are humanities and languages and I am an enthusiastic and passionate communicator. I currently hold a CRB certificate. I offer History to A level and below, English Literature to A-Level and below and Ancient Greek to A-Level and below.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced tutor, having spent the past two academic years tutoring a range of subjects, and have a passion for teaching and communication. Having been a part time participant of mainstream education until recently, and having tutored four different pupils at different levels in different subjects in that time, I have a clear understanding of the structure of current A-Level courses and the necessary requirements. All my previous pupils unanimously achieved high grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring approach to the tutee's needs and the subject being taught. Generally, I do a combination of exam technique, subject revision and coursework support. I have made many an amusing yet educational quiz and encourage pupils as much as possible for them to achieve the best grade possible.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching most of my working life. However, last year was entirely spent in fulltime education. I have Just finished a Masters degree specialising in Shakespeare and wish to make a return to teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for roughly 8 years now. I have taught English as a foreign language in Japan for a major language school. I worked as a private tutor in Japan and Australia teaching ESL. In Australia, I also worked with an import company improving the business English of their staff. I have taught Exercise Physiology both at University level for ANU in Sydney, and in an adult education environment. I have ample experience in sport coaching, having coached school children and university students in a variety of sports. I have taught on three continents, taught everyone from children as young as 1 to retirees. I have experience in a variety of subjects and people from various backgrounds. I am used to teaching individuals and groups.

Tutoring Approach:

People have different strengths and weaknesses. Both these need to be adequately construed before any teaching method can be finalised. Usually, I would try to ascertain the students strengths, to facilitate learning, and weaknesses, to identify areas of improvement. It is important to interpret these factors according to the framework of curriculum / examiner requirements. I endeavour to make my sessions fun for students. I try to remind myself that their tutoring sessions are often at the end of a long days work. This makes patience very important.

Personal Description:
I have a great deal of experience in teaching students who have problems with confidence or need the academic study skills to complete assignments, projects or just pass exams.

I have 20 years experience teaching in Further and Higher Education level. I have extensive experience in private tuition at both GCSE and A Level.

My specialist area is in helping individuals to develop study skills and exam skills. Irrespective of what subject you are studying I can help you with writing skills, reading skills and research skills. I am also able to help you develop strategies to pass examinations.

I have wide ranging experience in teaching essay writing and helping students and adults of all ages to complete smaller and larger writing and research projects.

I have a PhD in history (Early Modern), but I have also taught modern history at A level and undergraduate level, this includes modern British and European history, including subjects such as The European Dictatorships, The Cold War, The Spanish Civil War and many aspects of 19th and 20th Century History. I also teach modern politics and I am conversant with the history of political and religious ideas.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified post 16 teacher and have taught a range of subjects in the humanities.

I lived for 10 years in Germany and achieved a distinction in German at undergraduate level. I have taught German for beginners and can teach up to German A level and give advice on German at undergraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a great deal of experience in tutoring students with low confidence. I can help with improving and consolidating existing knowledge and boosting confidence.

My main aim, therefore, when teaching is to build confidence and encourage students to approach their work with a positive attitude and a 'believe in yourself and you will do your best' style of approach. So the building of self confidence and self esteem is central to my teaching with all students and all ages.

Personal Description:
I am a Primary school teacher currently teaching Year 3/4 though experienced across the whole of Primary age range. I am experienced in teaching children with a range of needs and am able to adapt my teaching to suit the needs of each individual child. I believe children often lack confidence in their own abilities and I aim to ensure that children not only make progress but gain a sense of self belief in themselves.

Teaching Experience:

Graduated in 2005 with BA (Hons) Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status 2:1.
Employed as Primary teacher since graduating.
Experience of teaching across whole of Primary age range, specialising in Key Stage 2
Experienced of tutoring on 1-1 level to raise standards in Maths and Literacy.
Experience of tutoring 1-1 for 11+ including tuition over Summer holidays due to change in entrance examination dates.

Personal Description:
I am a 29 year old English teacher and have been in full time employment in a secondary school for seven years. I am friendly and supportive. I feel that I do a great job in making a challenging subject easy and accessible.

I am based in Glasgow City Centre and run a tutoring school for Saturday morning classes. If you wish to contact me I will provide full details of my tutoring school and if you decide to join my classes I will fully refund any cost you incur by deducting it from your first fee. (Details cannot be revealed via this profile in order to respect the guidelines of UK tutors).

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English from National 4 and 5, Intermediate and Higher, through to Advanced Higher over seven years. My Department achieves results far higher than comparator schools and well above the national average.
I am one of two managers of Saturday School.

Tutoring Approach:

I have successfully tutored Standard Grade, Intermediate and Higher pupils over the past seven years. All of the pupils have attained the best possible grades.

In order to maximise attainment, my approach to teaching English involves working through the various question types pupils can expect to see in the main exam. For Close Reading I concentrate on: Understanding, by looking at own word questions, the context question and link questions; Analysis, by looking at word choice, imagery, sentence structure, tone and language; Evaluation, by focusing on pupil response and the final question. For Critical Essay, I concentrate on teaching my students how to logically structure an essay, develop skills in learning key quotations and prepare them to write under exam conditions. The folio aspect of the course is addressed after assessing individual pupils and through vital one to one discussions which take place during designated classes and through Edmodo.

I prefer a relaxed environment and pupils whom I have tutored in the past academic years have achieved As in Higher and Intermediate English. I also offer a "Pass Promise".

Personal Description:
I am currently a Primary School teacher working in the Maidstone area. I find teaching such a rewarding experience. There is no greater reward than being able to help a child who is finding something difficult so that they can feel confident to not only attempt task, but to use strategies and techniques taught which will help them to succeed. My experience of teaching all primary ages has helped me to develop strategies that the children will find simple and rewarding and as I know exactly where the children are coming from at a basic level and where they will b going to, I am able to support and challenge where necessary.

Teaching Experience:

I`ve been teaching for 8 years and during this time I have taught all primary age year groups from Reception through to year 6, although I currently teach a year 3 class. I have found that each year group offers its own challenges and rewards, but teaching this range has enabled me to develop strategies and activities that are suited to all. This range of experiences within primary school has also helped me to become familiar with not only the curriculum but also the testing arrangements in all year groups and as such I would be confident to tutor children of any primary age.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe that children need to feel comfortable and safe in order to learn well. I make every effort to get to know the children as I know that from understanding their personality, their likes and their dislikes, I am able to focus my tutoring to help them to reach their potential. Each child is individual and I endeavour to remember this every time I teach. Whether your child needs someone to challenge them academically, or someone to understand their complex needs and personalities, I can offer this.
