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

As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

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

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

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

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

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

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

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

At the moment (September 2013) I have 17 tutees in total: one A-level tutee, one GCSE English tutee, one home-schooled GCSE tutee for both English and Maths, two Key Stage 3 Maths tutees, one Key Stage 3 English tutee, two 11 Plus tutees, two Primary School Maths tutees and two Primay School Maths and English tutees. I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen
Listen and Learn
Aberdeen Language School
Free-lance

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

Personal Description:
I am a professional musician with a lifelong enthusiasm for education, particularly for encouraging people of all ages to discover the possibilities, and develop their potential and confidence, in all areas of life and learning.

I have a friendly, creative, relaxed personality, and enjoy seeing people grow in their confidence and ability, through listening carefully and working supportively with them to maximise strengths and address areas of struggle.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent well over twenty years supporting children and adults in developing not just musical abilities but a wide range of study skills (including literacy and numeracy), motivational and learning strategies. I have concentrated mostly on 1:1 tuition, and have acquired additional training in listening and counselling skills. The qualifications, skills and experience I have gained have equipped and inspired me to provide creative, focused support in ways appropriate to each individual.

I have tutored children and adults in piano, singing and music theory. I have also home-schooled my own five children through to secondary level, including successful 11+ entrance.

I have worked with talented children and with children who have learning difficulties. I have coached young adults and professionals who want to improve their existing abilities, and older adults who want to begin in music.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in treating each student as an individual, and seek to encourage and support them in their learning, drawing on a wide variety of resources and styles. I aim to make the learning process a positive and happy one where students feel accepted and encouraged, as well as stimulated to reach forward to improve their skills.

Personal Description:
I am currently a part-time Lecturer and Academic Writing Tutor at the University of Warwick, where I teach Romantic and Victorian Poetry, English and French Romanticism, Literary Theory and Study Skills / Academic Writing Skills. I am the author of Dialogue, Didacticism and the Genres of Dispute: Literary Dialogues in an Age of Revolution (London: Pickering & Chatto), which uncovers the neglected role and significance of genre in Romantic Studies, I have published numerous academic journal articles and I am a regular contributor to The English Review, the UK's leading English subject magazine for AS / A2 English students. I have a particular interest in dyslexia and teaching and learning strategies for dyslexic students (I am dyslexic myself and was educated in accordance with the Morpheme and Unisensory approach pioneered at Maples Hayes School and Research Centre, where I was formally a pupil and Deputy Head Boy). I also run a successful academic proofreading service as a further means of supplementing my income...

Teaching Experience:

I have over 6 years of teaching experience at the University of Warwick and have been providing private tuition for over 3 years. During 'A' level resits in January 2013, my cohort of tutees all achieved grade 'A's or A * having previously attained Cs, Ds or even Es. These results have been repeated this year (June 2014) and all of my private students have attained grades A or A* in their coursework and a mixture of As, Bs and Cs in exams and resists in which they previously got Es and even Us prior to receiving private tuition. All of my students have subsequently secured places at their first choice universities having received outstanding 'A' level results. I have taught in a variety of formats including large group lectures, seminars and one-to-one tutorials. I have also delivered a great deal of individualized study skills sessions for students, including those for whom English is a second language. I have also undertaken numerous courses through the University of Warwick's Learning and Development Centre and the internationally renowned Centre for Creativity and Performance in Teaching and Learning (CAPITAL). I have studied for and obtained the university's teaching qualification for Higher Education (Postgraduate Award: Academic and Professional Practice) and I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, member of the Institute for Professional Tutors and member of The Tutors' Association. I also hold a City & Guilds 7302 Certificate in Delivering Learning, so potential tutees / parents can be assured that I have both the experience and qualifications to deliver first class, highly individualized learning across a wide variety of levels from GCSE to postgraduates.

Tutoring Approach:

As a dyslexic myself my teaching philosophy centres around the needs of each individual student rather than attempting to adopt a 'one size fits all' mentality. I see each students needs and learning styles as being unique, and I adopt my tutoring styles accordingly. More generally, however, I am an ardent believer in keeping things as simple and informal as possible, and I pay particular attention to the careful, logical, methodical sequencing of ideas in order to structure learning, revision and knowledge retention in the most productive and readily assimilated manner possible - a strategy which has derived in part from my own research into dyslexia. I am approachable, very friendly, innovative, flexible and informal, so students who perhaps feel let down by the mainstream education system would particularly benefit from my approach.
I ALWAYS arrange to see students for an initial meeting once contact details have been exchanged in order to fully explore what the student / parents are aiming to gain from private tutoring and to discuss what approaches, learning styles and support is required. #THIS IS A FREE MEETING WHICH I OFFER ALL OF MY PROSPECTIVE TUTEES#


Please note that unlike some tutors, I am a SPECIALIST IN ENGLISH LITERATURE, LANGUAGE AND ACADEMIC WRITING ONLY - I DO NOT BELIEVE IN TRYING TO OFFER MORE SUBJECTS AS A MEANS OF MAXIMIZING INCOME!

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English, and also hold a BA and PhD in English literature. In addition to my 11-18 teaching experience, I have also taught literature at undergraduate level. Up to the present, I have been working as a full-time teacher of English in a secondary school (11-18), but have recently decided to seek more flexible teaching work in order to devote more time to my growing family.

Teaching Experience:

As a secondary school teacher of English (11-18), an excellent understanding of pupils and how they learn is an essential part of my role. I have experience of teaching English at both KS3, GCSE and A-Level. As a former university tutor and academic I am also particularly equipped to help older pupils through the process of completing A-Levels and competing for University positions and employment. Overall, I feel that my extensive experience both within and without the field of English teaching equips me to help pupils achieve their fullest potential. In addition, I hold a Diploma in Interior Design, and offer private tuition and home schooling in Textiles at GCSE and A-Level.

Tutoring Approach:

My style of teaching encourages pupils to enhance their own reading and writing skills, as well as providing essential support. I understand that different pupils have different needs and different learning styles, and I always endeavor to find an approach to teaching that will engage my particular pupil. I like variety and excitement in the lessons and tuition that I deliver, but at the same time I insist on a rigorous approach to study and especially to writing.

Personal Description:
Arts enthusiast with incisive critical engagement skills. Able to draw from a very wide range of critical theories when analysing arts and performance related texts. A big fan of film, theatre, music, comics, football and comedy.

Teaching Experience:

I graduated from Royal Holloway in 2011 with the highest degree grade of the academic year. I was approached by many of my co-students to advise them on essays and creative work and was employed by the Drama department to run workshops for prospective students. I've since worked as a freelance drama practitioner having led workshops with a wide spectrum of people from 10 to 70 years old.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to spread a love and enthusiasm for arts and humanities subjects and how they are good for personal as well as academic development. I can find ways to relate the work to the students own experiences. I'm a good problem solver, I'm able to pinpoint areas that need attention, particularly in essay and presentation work. I'm a natural entertainer but always maintain focus on the task at hand.

Personal Description:

In my first few lessons I aim to give students tasks that they can understand and complete within the lesson, building their confidence in their abilities. This then lays the foundations to progress on to more difficult topics, and develop the students own ability and skills set, so they can begin to tackle new, unfamiliar ares of the topic themselves.

Personal Description:
I am moving into my second year studying Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I achieved all A* at GCSE and A*A*AAB at A Level (in History, Economics & Business, English Literature, Extended Project and Biology), which was the top in my state school in Hertfordshire.

I am a highly motivated individual and share this in my teaching, at the same time I have fun when I teach and ensure students enjoy every minute of their session. I am looking to help my students to excel in their studies, but enjoy it at the same time, in hope that they see work not as a chore, but as a way to develop and improve.

I love working with children; I have a younger sister aged eight now who I have tutored throughout her schooling life and have seen her excel and develop in her studies. I feel a child's confidence is fundamental to their success; this is why when I teach I offer humour and enthusiasm to ensure work is not seen as a chore but an opportunity to improve.

Teaching Experience:

I was employed as a tutor at Sandringham School for three years; I worked closely with students and respective departments to push advanced students to achieve an A* at GCSE English. I was able to see their development not just in their results, but in their attitude to learning. I hope to inspire children, to engage them and to share the lessons I learned as a student so they can achieve the goals they wish to.

I was an employee at Waterstones for two years, during this I specialised in the kids department; I spent time with younger pupils to introduce authors and develop reading skills.

I feel that schools often lack the time and resources to pay individual attention to students and this is why I value individual tutoring; it offers children the opportunity to develop and succeed in education. I feel often it is students who are best suited to teaching other students, and through my enthusiasm and passion for education, I hope to encourage and mentor.

Tutoring Approach:

I wish to reiterate my passion for working with children; I see confidence as the greatest challenge to the success of my tutees. I like to teach progressively and proactively, but adapt based on the needs of the student. In tutoring younger children, I incentivise and offer rewards based on their work ethic and success in dealing with new problems. The older students may benefit more from past papers, exam technique assistance and tracked progression. I use quizzes to chart strengths and weaknesses and set papers for the student to work on outside of my tutoring sessions. My approach is engaging; I want to ensure my students really see a difference in their own attitude and success in their work, and I want them to make the most of their sessions with me.

Personal Description:
I am currently at Wallington County Grammar School. I feel that I am a warm and understanding person which is in my opinion what makes me a great teacher. My previous experience with teaching and care work has allowed me to communicate with clarity and fluency; another quality of a good teacher.

Teaching Experience:

In the academic field I am experienced having taught as a private tutor for over a year. Many of my previous students are GCSE students looking to improve their grades from a previous attempt which has allowed me to become quite familiar with a variety of exam boards; both higher and foundation tier. These students are mainly secondary school students. I have some experience with adult learners, but I only teach up to GCSE standard.

Tutoring Approach:

When teaching I prefer to guide the students in their learning as opposed to lecturing the bare-bone facts needed for examination. This from experience has been much more enjoyable for the student which of course leads to better learning and better results.
