As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

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

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

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

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

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

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 (October 2014) I have 21 tutees in total: this includes 3 home-school tutees doing a variety of subjects, one A-level English tutee and one A level Geography tutee, two GCSE English tutees, one Key Stage 3 Maths tutee, three Key Stage 3 English tutees, one 12 Plus tutee, five Primary Maths tutees and one Primary School Maths and English tutee, three GCSE Maths tutees, one KS5 numeracy tutee and, finally, three GCSE Geography tutees. I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Jodie. I am a 28 year old female currently studying a PhD in Education Policy at The University of Nottingham. I am friendly, enthusiastic, organised and I have several years of experience tutoring students with a range of abilities, both at home and in a school environment.

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

Teaching Experience:

Summary of Tutoring Experience:

Over the past six years I have privately tutored numerous children aged 6-18 in English Literature, English Language, Social Sciences, and Mathematics.

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

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

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

Summary of Academic Qualifications:

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

As I have degrees and post graduate qualifications in English Language, English Literature and Social Science subjects and I am happy to teach these up to degree level. I have tutored key Stage Two mathematics privately for five years and I am and I am up-to-date with the curriculum and preparation needed for Key Stage Two SATS examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

Personal Description:
I'm amazing!!!
And I help other people be amazing too!!!
My aim is to increase everyone's understanding of everything!!!

I've been tutoring Maths, Science and English since 2007, for ages 5 to 50. However, I mostly help teenagers with their SATs, GCSEs and A Levels.

Maths, Science and English are the three main subjects that people tend to want tutoring in. (Actually it's five subjects if you break the Science down into Biology, Chemistry and Physics.)

Anyway, as I tutor all of these subjects, my students find it very useful that I can potentially cover a different subject each week, or I can do two hours a week and cover a different subject in each hour.

This obviously makes it much easier for the parents too, because they don't have to find a separate tutor for each subject, or leave their child without the valuable one-to-one support in any of the core subjects.

I've also helped my students with pretty much every major school subject; from History and Religious Studies, to French and Spanish, and even Psychology and Health and Social Care. In fact, experience has shown me that I can help anyone to better understand anything - even something that I didn't even know myself a minute earlier!

Personal Description:
I'm a hard working dedicated individual that will give any task set my best. I always aim for the very best and I love to help those around me. I have a Psychology degree (2.1) and I have successfully passed graduate teacher in a Primary Academy in North London (PGCE). I currently work in Year 2 where the focus is on the the KS1 SATs, however I have had previous years of experience working in Reception classes to Year 6.

I have a strong passion for the English Language. I have always enjoyed it and I believe that helping people with English is where I shine through. Since I have started working full time in a school, I have really found a passion for teaching mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

2012
I have been a member of UK Tutors since 2008 and have tutored around 20 children and young adults since. I've had voluntary work experience working as a teaching assistant for children aged between 3 and 4. I've also had experience working with a year 6 class who were due to take their year 6 SATS test. In this role I helped those who were finding certain aspects of their lessons hard; I helped those with special needs and I also offered extra guidance to those who were confident with their upcoming tests. I've also been a mentor to secondary school students aged 13-15. I offered help for all sorts of problems - whether it was to do with trouble with their social life or trouble with understanding things in lessons. No matter what the problem was, they had my full attention and I like to believe that I always successfully helped them.

2013:
I have currently passed the Qualified Teacher Skills (QTS) test in English and Maths and I am now a Graduate Teacher working in Year 2. I am knowledgeable about the curriculum and what the children need to achieve to reach certain levels. I am currently focusing on the Year 2 upcoming SATS.

I am fully trained in MMS (Maths Made Sense) which is a new and revolutionary way to teach children maths - the results are incredible. This approach makes dividing, multiplying, adding and subtracting easy for the children to understand as well as making the lessons fast-paced and fun.

I am also fully trained in RWI (Read, Write, Inc) which is a fantastic phonics scheme for children. By the use of special techniques and layouts of work children are able to progress fast through the phonics scheme - ensuring they fully know how to read and write all their sounds! Many schools are starting to show interest in this scheme as the results are fantastic, I have been lucky enough to be working in a school that has been using this scheme for many years now.

I receive termly training on both MMS and RWI to keep me up to date with the newest techniques to help children succeed.

I work with a broad range of children - from those suffering with learning disabilities, those with English as a second language and gifted and talented children. I work with 3 year olds through to 11 year olds. I also tutor English and Maths up to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach:

I am currently tutoring 8 people - from children needing to boost their grades for their Year 2 SATS to teenagers and adults brushing up on their A-Level Psychology. I also tutor a few children who have learning difficulties - the focus of the sessions revolve around confidence building, acquisition of knowledge, recognition of numbers/letters and helping children to write through working on their hand motor skills.

I have a kind, warm and friendly approach to teaching and helping. I will always be understanding, and never will be patronising. I believe that people are not scared to approach me when they need help. People will have my full attention and I will help to my fullest extent.

If you feel that I am the right candidate for you, please always opt for 1 X 1 hour lesson on the enquiry page - this is so we can both make sure that our arrangement is right and that we both do not end up paying extra fees! We can arrange further tutoring after our first session.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English with many years of study, research and training in some of the world's top universities. My qualifications include a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in English Literature and the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in English, including Media Studies and Drama. My Initial Teacher Training covered all aspects of English and all abilities in the 11-18 age range. My interests, of benefit to many students especially at university level, include Critical Theory, Classical Literature, and African Literature. I have guided many students doing research and proof-read their dissertations. I have also taken the official training for one-to-one tutors rolled out by the government to complement classroom teaching. I also have experience as a GCSE English examiner for Edexcel and gained the status of Senior Examiner serving as Team Leader from the June 2013 exam series.

Teaching Experience:

My first teaching appointment came in 1988 in Cameroon where I taught English and African Literature, becoming an 'A' Level examiner for the Cameroon GCE examination board in 1990. I later took the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to the PGCE, finishing my last year as Education Student of the Year in my university and receiving a national commendation for the quality of my work. I have since taught in different schools in Kent and Medway, preparing students for exams such as Functional Skills, IELTS, GCSE, 'A' Level, IB and AEA. I have also given one-to-one tuition to looked-after teenagers under a government scheme as well as taught in a secure unit for which, in addition to enhanced disclosure CRBs, I was vetted over a six month period. My first long-term (over 3 months) supply position involved teaching GCSE English, 'A' Level English Literature, and the IB. Most of my teaching has been in selective (grammar) schools. I have also given English lessons in my local community as part of an outreach programme organised for speakers of other languages by my church where I teach Bible Studies also.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to establish the needs of the students and carefully review all available assessment records. If the student is preparing for a special exam such as the GCSE, I would start by ensuring that the student is aware of the full requirements of the exam and establish a clear plan to cover these. Alongside any such programme, I believe strongly in incorporating the fundamentals of English grammar which are sometimes overlooked in formal teaching settings. I like to build a good rapport with the student so that they are comfortable revealing possible areas of weakness that we could turn into strengths.

Personal Description:
I am 33 years old and currently live in London. I am originally from Derbyshire in the north of England. Before becoming a teacher, I worked with children aged between 2 and 12 in a variety of environments. I enjoy sport and run and coach the school Year 6 football team, I also enjoy playing tennis and swimming. I have worked with children of various ages for the last six years and have been a qualified teacher for 5 years.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified primary school teacher and currently preparing a Year 6 class for their 11+ exams in West London. I have 5 years experience in teaching during which time I have taught Year 4 (8/9 year olds), Year 5 and Year 6 (10/11 year olds, final year at primary school). Last year I underwent training for a one-to-one teaching programme, which involved working with individual children, each for an hour a week. As a full time primary school teacher, I teach all National Curriculum subjects including Maths, English and Science, I also have experience teaching the 11+ syllabus. I was also the ICT coordinator at a previous school and excel in the subject knowledge and teaching of this subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that patience, flexibility and a desire for a child to reach their potential are key to being a successful tutor. Children need to be extended and pushed to ensure that they are not just doing the minimum to succeed, but the best that they can possibly do. I believe that my approach to tutoring is a balance of patience and persistence which is very successful in getting results. I am flexible in the way that I tutor, meaning that I can use a variety of teaching styles to suit the individual child's needs. No two children are the same and therefore each child learns in a different way. I am sensitive to the individuals needs and am able to find the best way for them to reach their potential.

I AM ALSO ABLE TO TUTOR FOR THE 11+.

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

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

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

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

Teaching Experience:

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

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

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

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

Personal Description:
I am an outgoing and hard working 1st Class BA Cambridge graduate, who can get along well with almost anybody. I've been consistently in education, having gone straight from school into university and straight from university into drama school.

I love to learn.

I am a huge fan of academia, having worked hard in my studies throughout my life, and I love stimulating my mind and working hard, and for that reason I love tutoring, where I can both teach and continue to learn myself.

Teaching Experience:

My degree at Cambridge University was in Education studies with English and Drama. Although it was not a teacher training course, the Education Studies module of the degree involved learning an introduction to the philosophy, psychology, sociology and history of education. I was also, of course, able to benefit from the private seminar and tutorial system that Cambridge offers. As a result, I am fully aware of how beneficial a one-on-one teaching style can help to build confidence, and heighten learning and understanding.

I have now been tutoring ages 7-18 for about 2 years, and have had very good feedback from my various jobs:

1. Lucy is an excellent enthusiastic tutor who does a great job keeping my son interested and engaged. I would highly recommend her. - Father of Zain (age 8)

2. I would really like to thank you for being such a great tutor. We appreciate the effort you put into preparing for the sessions with Ella and we have every confidence in your dedication and abilities. - Father of Ella (age 16)

3. "Julian scored 97% UMS marks in English Language, which is within 2.1% of all the boys taking English this year. For English Literature his UMS score was 97% again, which is within 4% of all the boys this year! This brilliant result, we think, is largely thanks to your help" - Mother of Julian (age 16)

4. Our son absolutely loved Lucy. She worked so hard with him in the lead-up to his exams, and I don`t know what we would have done without her! - Mother of Christopher (age 11)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is generally fun. I am the tutor who is also the friend. I do not let a child get away with misbehaviour or laziness, but at the same time I am certainly not stern and forceful. My approach is without a doubt to help the child learn to love the subject and want improvement for themselves, not because I demand it of them.

Firstly, I will always aim to find the areas the child is having the most difficulty with and break it down to its simplest form to help them understand. Once a child has understood the basic principle of what we are learning, I aim to push them as far as I can with their learning - my memory of the best teacher's I had at school were the teacher's who pushed me even further than I needed to go, and who gave me more knowledge and information than I needed to know. I then found that I entered my exams relaxed and confident, knowing that I had excess knowledge. Rather than learning just to answer set questions in an exam, I felt I truly understood those subjects.



Of course, I would play everything by ear though, and I would not pile extra work or information on a child if they are still struggling. We will work at a pace that is comfortable but useful for them.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher, with over 12 years experience in both post 16 and mainstream education. My position prior to that, was that of Programme Area Manager, at a 6th Form College in North London.
As such, the development of students is at the heart of everything I do, and my aim is to always to help them to achieve their goals, build their self confidence, and develop the essential skills to help them become successful and well rounded adults. Having worked in a number of schools and colleges, with a variety of challenging students of all ages and abilities, I recognised that every child needs a different approach to their learning, as each has specific learning needs. My role over the years has been to provide the necessary support and guidance to each individual student according to his or her needs.
Being also a semi-professional musician and teacher of music and Music Technology, I have a very good understanding of both the creative as well as the more academic type of student, and have developed strategies to be able to support and develop all students.

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching at Primary level, coaching in various North London Schools. From their I went on to teach young persons and adults at a College in Essex, and did this for 6 years before taking a role as programme area manager at a a North London College. I have had many supply teaching roles in colleges and secondary education, and I am currently working as a freelance teaching for a North London Academy, and a Private organisation in East London.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to instil, build and develop self confidence, and belief, and also to make sessions fun and enjoyable, using a variety of hands on practical activities, and teaching methods, so the students develop a genuine love and desire for the subject. With my teaching methods, which is very much more of a coaching model, students make progress rapidly, and achieve their goals and aims, and leave sessions feeling fulfilled and feeling that they have accomplished something substantial. Most cant wait for the next session.

After returning to the UK I worked for a few years in two secondary schools and one primary school, providing educational support to students, including children with special needs.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English teacher with an 'Outstanding' PGCE, a First Class Honours in English and an MA in English Renaissance Literature. I have a real passion and enthusiasm for all aspects of English, and I have been studying and teaching the subject for a number of years now. In addition to my subject knowledge and qualifications, I am a friendly and approachable person, and can adapt easily to any situation. I have a very positive and encouraging approach, and will always go that extra mile for my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in several sixth form colleges throughout West Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire, and in a comprehensive secondary school in Leeds. I have experience of teaching GCSE, AS and A2 level English (Literature, Language and Lang/Lit).

Further to this, I have experience of one-to-one tuition in a home, college and university setting, tutoring GCSE and A-level students across all English subjects (using exam boards AQA, OCR, Edexcel, and WJEC). I also have experience in tutoring international students, providing support with written and spoken English.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very flexible approach to tutoring, and always tailor the teaching and learning to the individual student's needs and requirements. Together with the student, I will devise a learning plan to ensure that lessons are structured, progress is monitored and the student gets the maximum out of each session. I have always approached teaching with a level of creativity and innovation, and this enables me to adapt my style and method to suit and engage each individual learner. I also believe that confidence and self-belief are essential to the learning process, and I always strive to develop this in my students.
