Personal Description:
I am a very keen and enthusiastic university graduate and love to help others learn. I specialize with children and young adults. I am a good role model as I am bubbly, show confidence and balance my career with my social life including my sports (rock climbing and snowboarding).

I have a range of experience in childcare and tuition and find different ways for my pupils to understand the materials they are learning. I find ways in which they can relate to the information which helps them retain the information for longer.
I have had several years of experience with private tutoring producing great results (please ask if you would like a reference).

Teaching Experience:

All throughout my University degree I was working part-time at Explore Learning, a Maths and English tuition center designed to help children with their national curriculum between the ages of 5 and 14. This has given me valuable experience on many different teaching techniques as well as keeping up to date with the new learning strategies that children are using in their day to day learning at school.
My one on one tutoring experience ranges from GCSE level to Primary Maths and English including other topics such as Current affairs.
On a sporting level, I gained my Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors qualification in 2009 and have continued to teach snowboarding over in Italy with Interski in my university holidays.

Quote from a reference: 'Rabia will definitely miss your cheery and happy persona. She has had other tutors but with nowhere near the enthusiasm and effort that you put in! She looks forward to you coming and has a real connection with you.'

Tutoring Approach:

I have many different approaches to learning, dependant on the age of the pupil. I like to use targets and rewards to keep motivation levels high and learning is fun by relating the subject to my tutee's everyday life. I ensure there are several reviews and assessments to enhance progression and keep on track.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about the subjects I tutor in and education in general. Education forms the foundation for freeing us from bigotry and ignorance, makes us better people and permits us to live richer, better lives. Knowledge is liberating and my subjects especially open many doors. They are not easy and require a willingness to work hard, but I strongly believe that anyone can get to grips with them if given the correct guidance. Most often the problem is not the student but a poor teacher, unresolved conceptual difficulties or lack of motivation. I want to fix these issues for you.

I used to work as a research physicist at Cambridge University in an indefinable capacity. I had several years of poor physical health (fit and healthy now) that made funding an issue, so I was an unofficial PhD student researching quantum computing and foundational issues in physics.

I have always have had a dual interest in the arts and philosophy, literature in particular. I've written a novel and several full length plays as well as directing at the student theatre in Cambridge and making short films. I recently decided to form my own film production company and work full time as a writer and director for films and plays. Our first short film is in production and we are applying for funding for a feature.

I'd say my approach to education is rigorous, highly intellectual and what one might term renaissance in approach. I'm interested in all aspects of education, and how our disparate academic disciplines connect which is somewhat antithetical to the modern approach to education but just the sort of thing one needs to get into Oxbridge and the like.

Why is tutoring important to me? Firstly, I feel it is my responsibility to pass on the knowledge and skills I have attained; secondly, I find it satisfying to help others learn and achieve what they did not think possible, regardless of their ability; and finally, I think one of the best ways to assess your own understanding of a subject is to teach it; we learn the most about our areas of expertise when we try convey their concepts and methods to an audience.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many (over 100) students privately over the past six years, improving their results in all cases where the students have followed my advice and worked hard

I have experience of teaching children as young as five through to graduates and am happy to work one to one, in small groups or in a classroom.

I also help set up and run and small charity to improve the educational standards of recent immigrants in inner city London where I taught all ages of students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and I persevere. I am happy to tutor people across all ranges of ability but i expect you to work hard and follow my advice.

My tutoring includes:

- free initial consultation with needs assessment and lesson
- encouragement of free and critical thinking
- varying teaching methods depending on what the student is most receptive to including: problem based learning, discourse, traditional exercises, experiments, lectures
- exam preparation
- confidence building
- resolution of conceptual difficulties
- helping with homework
- homework marking
- undergraduate and postgraduate application advice
- coaching for Oxbridge entrance including the STEP papers
- interview advice at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
- email contact throughout the week to resolve your problems as an when they arise
- group tuition

Please note (a) while I am based in Hackney, I will cover East, central and South London; (b) I can offer reductions for group sessions.

Personal Description:
My qualifications include a BA in English Literature from Warwick University and an MA in American Literature from Sheffield University, as well as an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University. As well as tutoring, I run a proofreading and copy-editing business, working for academic and business clients, including fiction writers.

In 2010, I edited an anthology of creative writing. I am also working on my first novel, and my creative writing has been published online and in literary magazines.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a private tutor since 2009. I offer one-to-one classes in English language (EFL and native speakers), including IELTS, as well as in literature and creative writing. I can provide tutees with help to: understand the rules of grammar; improve their linguistic style; write essays or creative pieces; analyse literary texts; or prepare for an exam, piece of coursework or interview.

My rates are affordable and include block-booking discounts. I can teach any age-group, from children to adult learners. I have experience in helping students to prepare for exams, interviews and coursework, from GCSEs to the Oxbridge entrance interview and the IELTS exam.

I have a 100% success rate in helping students to pass the IELTS exam; I succeeded in helping a student to pass the Oxbridge English entrance interview; and I have recently enabled a GCSE student to improve his English Language grade from an E to an A*.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed but focussed approach to tutoring, believing that each individual should work at their own pace. I have a great love of the English language, and of its literature, and aim to pass that on to my tutees. I am happy to work with people wherever they feel comfortable, either at my home or theirs. I plan each lesson according to the individual student's needs. I have been described by my students as a kind and thoughtful teacher, and as reliable, punctual and pleasant.

Personal Description:
I always seek to organise lessons around the student's areas of interest.
I expect lessons to be both fun and challenging, and set clear goals and objectives for each student, both short- term and long- term.
I have lived and taught in France, Germany and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

6 years in a London Montessori School, age range 5- 16.
3 years in a London comprehensive, age range 11- 19.
3 years in a West Midlands comprehensive, age range 11- 16.
10 years in a Cheshire comprehensive, age range 11- 18.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a serious investment of time and money on the part of both student and teacher, and so I always spend part of the first session making sure that everyone is clear about the aims and objectives of the tutoring.

Recent Testimonials (2014/2015):

"Luke isn't cheap by any stretch of the imagination but I can honestly say he is worth every penny! Frankly, before we were paying £130 an hour using a top London tutor agency and I was more than happy to deal directly with Luke - Very impressed by his level of professionalism and expertise. Results exceeded all expectations" Mr Dubov (General Curriculum 8-13) 2015

"When you employ Luke, rest assured you are employing the best. This peace of mind alone is worth paying for. I would get full answers to my law essay questions within about 10 minutes.

"I'm so happy that I chose Luke to assist with my Law Coursework, I had also asked someone else to do it (£20 ph) and when their essay arrived the day before due date it was complete jibberish!!

Facts about tuition:

Your children's education is the one thing you should never settle for second best with, and with recent figures showing 40% of London student's having received Private Tuition at some point in the past - it is imperative you give your children the best chance in life by employing the best tutors.

I am not a part-time student, I am not a part-time graduate or even a part-time professional offering tutoring services. I am a qualified teacher heading up a Law Department in a Surrey Sixth Form College, and teach every day. Therefore I know the syllabus inside out, what the examiner expects, and the pedagogy of how student's learn most effectively. My prices reflect the Stirling and first-class standard of tuition offered.

My rates reflect results. I guarantee an improvement in grade and performance (sometimes evident after just several sessions.) My approach to tuition is very exam focused - especially when close to exams or resits. I don't waste time working through a chunky textbook - I work through past papers with students so they know what to expect, how to prepare, and how to get the most marks possible.

But actions speak louder than words:

One GCSE student joined me working at GCSE Mathematics Grade D/E, he hated maths and was dropping through his sets. Within only a few weeks he had jumped up a grade and by the end of the month he was achieving solid C's. Now 3 months on he is consistently achieving at GCSE grade B (and is now sitting GCSE Higher paper), he is top of his class, and realistically he will be aiming for grade A/A* in the Summer.

Another student joined me at the end of 2012. He was privately educated and was on the border of exclusion, his grades were also extremely low. Within only a month this student was off his report card, and his teachers had noticed a change in attitude and performance. Only a week ago, his report showed clear improvements across the board in both effort and achievement, and his core subjects showed a massive turn around. Behaviour had improved also.

Another student was working at GCSE Mathematics Grade D/E and he required a C in mathematics in order to get onto his College Course. The student had attended extra revision classes and had also been privately tutored but there was no significant change in his results with only 6 weeks until his exams. I tutored this student over the remaining 6 weeks. I focused on exam technique and actual specific exam content and the Student received his Grade C (Highest mark possible on Foundation paper) and was consequently accepted onto his course.

Another Privately educated student was on the Dyslexic spectrum and was struggling to meet the gateway grade C in his Mathematics GCSE. The parents had spent extensive amounts of money on private tuition and the school had put on many extra revision sessions - all to no avail. Within the first tuition slot, I had quickly relaised that the conventional teaching methods were having absolutely no effect. I had to customise my approach and actually found that getting the student to draw out the problems was the only way he could understand and remember them. Over a very short period of time (every Saturday for 5 weeks) the student easily hit the required standard and passed his GCSE maths with no issues.

Now about me:

I graduated from Nottingham Law School with a 1st Class Law Degree. My life in academia is solid: I have been a member of the "National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth" since the age of 11; achieved 11 GCSE's (inc. A* English Literature, A* English Language A* Mathematics A*A* Science) of which my English Literature GCSE Exam mark was amongst one of the top 5 marks Nationwide; achieved 5 AS Levels and 3 A Levels (AAA) to which my marks in English Literature and History were full marks. I am a motivational, electric and honest individual, who strives to achieve the best in both myself and those around me.

Furthermore, I always aim to be a positive role model in addition to tutor.

*For all tutees who undergo initial assessment and follow the recommended course of tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching A-Level Law, Business and Functional Skills (English and Maths GCSE) ,at a Surrey VI Form College. I am also head of the Law Department. This means I also have a current and enhanced CRB check. My past tutoring experience is extensive and spans over 7 years. My experience derives from the many sessions of private tuition I have provided over the years, tutoring at Degree level and predominantly GCSE level (mainly mathematics and English.)

For example, at the moment I am tutoring two brothers (State School) KS3/KS4/GCSE Mathematics who are in year 10 and 8 respectively. I also mentor and tutor a year 8 boy (Whitgift Private School) across the whole syllabus. The year 10 tutee jumped from achieving a grade D/E in the foundation Maths Paper to achieving 100% on the Foundation Papers (a Grade C) and later achieving a grade B in his intermediate Maths Paper (within 3 months.) We aim to achieve an A* on the higher paper for his actual exam. The Whitgift educated tutee was originally tutored 2 hours a week (originally intended for one month) but after clear improvements across the board (both academic and behavioural) this was doubled to 4 hours a week and has continued indefinitely.

Taking into account all my past (7 years worth) and present tutees - I have taught both genders at every age (8 - 18) across all my subject specialisms. This gives me extensive private tuition experience. This comes at a premium in our profession, and is generally more valued than even the most impressive educational background or academic achievements.

My most recent degree level tutee (mature student) describes me as providing a "unique, interesting and intuitive tutoring experience" and assures me from her experience that a tutor in the very heart of academia is all the more useful to a tutee than an old Cambridge professor completely out of touch with a modern syllabus. I also recently tutored and mentored a Saudi Prince through the first year of his Law Degree at Nottingham Law School and he stated he couldn't have done this "without me." I am used to teaching students who have English as a second language, students with learning difficulties (ADHD, Dyslexia) and also Gifted and Talented student.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a modern and pragmatic approach to academia, having recently left University, higher and secondary education. My understanding of what a pupil is "going through" makes my style of teaching all the more useful, as a good rapport between pupil and student will be built. Furthermore, my extensive revision material is the latest and the best. This is due to the fact my resources are second to none.

With regards to Degree level Law - I am happy to assist in any particular areas of difficulty that may span exam preparation or coursework. I am also happy to read through the latter and make recommendations. Having competed in several Nationally esteemed mooting competitions this is an area where I feel my tutoring excels.

I feel it is essential for both tutee and parent to see tangible results from tuition. My approach is very exam based, primarily as I feel it is the best way to learn, and that it increases exam confidence, but also that it offers a medium whereby improvements can be gauged. All my students have shown significant improvements and I operate on a 100% pass rate. I feel every student is capable of achieving full marks, and with the right structured approach and effort - they can and will be achieved.

Personal Description:
I am a confident, diligent and sociable person, with a wide knowledge of world history, and specialising in American and South-East Asian history and culture. I hold a double first class Bachelors degree in History and American Studies from Canterbury Christ Church University, and have had many years experience leading youth projects such as youth councils, young persons' scrutiny forums (YPSF) and have acted as a liasion on several historical and cultural preservation projects such as the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) and the Church House Preservation Committee.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience as a teaching assistant to KS3 and KS4 level history at a state secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a holistic approach to the teaching of history, ensuring that the student becomes engaged within a fuller understanding of the period being studied. As a former student and teach of history, I realise that the principal block to a tutee's understanding of historical concepts is a lack of immersion within the relevant time-frames and thus an inability to fully comprehend why certain actions were taken, and the wider effect this had.

Thus in my approach I am firm believer that it is as important for every student to understand to a higher level than that offered by the current state curriculum the context of the period they are studying. As a consequence I offer tailored introductions to said period's culture, economy, religious and political setting, and even physical geography.

Furthermore, I offer the necessary skills to craft this knowledge into well-reasoned, informed essays. My intimate knowledge of the state education system and beyond has imbued me with the ability to gauge how assignments will be assessed and thus I can work with students not only on improving their knowledge, but showcasing this in highly-marked, structured and coherent written forms.

I use a number of methods to achieve this, including homework assignments, but also using character adoption, audio-visual aids and a mixture of written and verbal questions of varying length and form.

Personal Description:
I am a divorcee with two teenagers and a rather loopy dog (all housetrained!) I discovered the joys of teaching as a parent helper at my children's Infant and Junior schools which inspired me to qualify as a Primary School teacher. Unfortunately I have developed arthritis in my knee which is why I am looking to continue my teaching in a non-school environment. My favourite academic subject is literacy because I love reading books by a wide range of authors, e.g. Austin and Dickens to J K Rowling and Jacqueline Wilson. I love creative crafts e.g. card making, cross stitch, scrapbooking etc. Music plays a big part in my life, including listening and making. I'm a bit of a diva on the recorder and can play the full range from Sopranino to Bass. I love to sing.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher who has worked in a number of schools in Essex in permanent, temporary and supply posts across both KS1 and KS2 over the last four years. My PGCE was obtained through School Centred Initial Teacher Training (which comprised spending a lot of time working directly with children). Prior to that I was a parent helper and governor for 5 years at my children's Infant and Junior Schools. I was Music Leader at my last school for two years and ran the choir. I enjoy teaching all primary subjects. I am keen to also support adults in improving their maths and literacy skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am familiar with the Primary Curriculum. Hands on learning is great fun and I enjoy practical activities. I love working on a one to one basis as you can build a rapport and really personalise the learning. I enjoy topic work as it gives the learning a context and shows that subjects do not stand alone without any connections/overlap with each other (just like life). I am keen to support both adults and children in mastering literacy and numeracy skills because they are fundamental life skills. Personalised learning means that any gaps can be filled so that an individual has a firm foundation on which to build.

Personal Description:
I am a well qualified and experienced teacher in Maths, English Language & Science. I have taught in various secondary schools for well over 14 years and have also offered one to one tuition in to many pupils in Primary & Secondary schools.

I possess a degree in education and a teacher training certifiate (PGCE) in Maths & ICT.I have successfully helped pupils to gain exceptional results in their subject areas. I am also a National Education award winner.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my experience in education, both studying and teaching, I have realised that not all students are given sufficient attention from the teacher.

This is a problem inherent within the education system. Let me explain. The average school-class consists of approximately 25 students and the average teacher works under tremendous pressures. These include the demands of completing the syllabus, time restraints and teaching students of mixed abilities. For these reasons, it is usually the case that teachers are unable to attend to the needs of each individual at all times.

As a result, it is very likely that some students fail to understand key concepts or even lose confidence in themselves and in the subject. Now I have launched my own personal tutoring service: Private Tuition UK
which is tailored specifically to each pupils requirements.

I have been a personal tutor for 15 years now and have helped many young people to achieve better grades in their GCSE and AS/A level qualifications.
I have also been an Adult Education Tutor for 16 years, teaching literacy up to pre GCSE levels.
I live in Great Malvern most of the time, where I am available for home tuition.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience has been with post 16 learners of literacy.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in working with under confident pupils who need to 'home in' on their skills to get a better grade and with those who need to understand a particular area of their studies to improve their grade.
My style is to find out, with the learner, what needs to be worked on and focus on that, in a relaxed but achievement enhancing style. This has produced very positive results.

Personal Description:
Cambridge-educated tutor | Tuition at KS3, GCSE and A-Level | Support for students applying to Oxford and Cambridge

I have a degree in English from Queens` College, Cambridge, and A-Levels in German, Spanish, English Literature and Drama.

I tutor in:
English literature and language at A-Level, GCSE and KS3
English as a foreign language (to any level)
German and Spanish for beginners/KS3.

I also offer support to students applying to Oxford and Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in teaching people of all ages on a range of different subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

Understanding the needs of the student is my first priority. Everyone is different and has to come at their thoughts and studies in a way which suits them.

I never dictate answers but look to give students the means and confidence to get there themselves. It`s my job to explain concepts, help tackle and understand course texts, create tailored handouts, give guidance in structuring essays and generally offer support wherever I can.

I make constant reference to course specifications to ensure that material covered is relevant and that course requirements are met: students should write essays and enter the exam hall knowing they have the tools to do well.

I also think it's important for students to discuss and develop their ideas in a way which genuinely inspires and engages them in the subject - the basis of the Oxbridge tutorial system.

Given the right focus, guidance and encouragement, I genuinely believe it is possible for any student to do excellently.

Subjects

I went through the GCSE and A-Level courses and know what it takes to do excellently in those exams. The subjects I list are in the traditional qualifications, but I am happy to tailor tuition to other courses, too.

Personal Description:
I have just graduated from the University of Bristol with a BA in German (2.1) and I am about to start a two year postgraduate acting course at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I am offering both German and English literature help because I am confident in teaching both language and literature analysis.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored a GCSE student through their German oral and written exams a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I also worked as a theatre in education intern during my year abroad in Germany where I regularly taught workshops based on theatre and text.

Tutoring Approach:

I am really passionate about getting students excited about languages and I believe that the key to success in GCSE and A-Level is confidence. As well as going through school work, coursework and exam preparation I like to ensure that I include a 10 minute conversation in German at every lesson so that the pupil builds confidence in their ability to use vocabulary and grammar correctly. For English Literature I will provide help with essays, literature analysis (especially poetry and Shakespeare) so that students feel confident and prepared for their exams. I will also encourage my students to expand their overall knowledge of literature by reading widely and talking about what they have read. Depending on the needs of the student, I might expect them to keep a literature journal as well.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, creative and highly experienced teacher of English language and literature, recently retired from the full-time secondary school teaching post I held for 23 years, at an independent girls' school in Lincolnshire. I taught throughout the school, at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and have a strong proven commitment to raising academic standards; my students have achieved consistently excellent GCSE and A Level grades. Although I have a particular passion for teaching literature, I am a rigorous teacher dedicated to raising standards of literacy through my teaching of English language, and to the educational and personal development of young people more widely, especially those in transition to higher education.
As well as teaching my academic subject, I have been a sixth form personal tutor for 18 years, monitoring my students' academic progress, and guiding and mentoring those applying to university, assisting with UCAS applications and personal statements, or helping tutees plan for a gap year or for employment - a role which I found particularly fulfilling. I also have experience of teaching in further education and have been successful in teaching mature students from different cultural backgrounds.
In the past two years I have supervised sixth form students taking the AQA Extended Project Qualification. I greatly enjoy one - to-one tuition.
In a career spanning more than 40 years in all, I have built up extensive subject knowledge and teaching expertise, which I can adapt to students ranging from 11 years to adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my most recent post, which I held for 23 years until my recent retirement, I taught English Language and English Literature throughout the school: to pupils aged 11-14 at Key Stage 3, to pupils taking GCSE exams, and to sixth formers taking AS and A level English.
At GCSE and AS/A Level my pupils have obtained consistently excellent results. I have taught a very wide range of set texts for literature and have taught courses by different exam boards, such as Edexcel, and OCR, and the CIE IGCSE.
My teaching has often involved one-to-one sessions with pupils who need extra support and I have taught those whose attainment in the subject is modest, as well as higher achievers in English.

My teaching experience prior to this included teaching for a total of 7 years full and part-time in further education colleges, and I have also taught English as a foreign language for the British Council.

Since retiring a year ago from full time secondary school teaching, I have been tutoring privately, teaching students ranging from 15 to 21, assisting with preparation for GCSE exams, A Levels, and at university level. I have been tutoring students following a range of different GCSE courses and examining boards, including Edexcel IGCSE, Cambridge IGCSE, and AQA GCSE courses, both language and literature, and have been assisting with revision of a wide range of set texts, demonstrating my adaptability and expertise in quickly grasping what different exam techniques are required.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a natural continuation of my approach as a classroom teacher. I am passionate about my subject and prepare lessons thoroughly and imaginatively. I begin by making sure I am fully in the picture with regard to the specific course being followed and the exam criteria, and use the exam boards' websites to source relevant materials such as past papers and teaching resources. I always have a clear lesson plan and realistic aim of what I wish to achieve in the time available. I like people and I am a friendly, outgoing person who will communicate successfully with a tutee; I enjoy the company of young people and am experienced in putting my tutees at their ease and building their confidence, which I believe is very important. I form productive relationships with those I teach and am good at listening to them and assessing their needs, and adjusting my teaching strategy accordingly. As well as preparing thoroughly, I mark work meticulously and give very detailed and helpful feedback, both in writing and orally. I set relevant work to be completed for the next tutorial, and monitor progress closely; I stay in regular contact with my students and/or their parents via email and phone.
I am a hardworking and sympathetic tutor with the interests of my tutees at heart; my aim is to help them achieve their full potential and gain exam success.

Personal Description:
My name is Nicholas and I specialise in the English language. Be it for exams, creative writing or even a first contact with English I can provide you with a well-structured plan in order to achieve your aims.

Teaching Experience:

I work as an EFL Tutor at the prestigious ECX Training Company. As a private tutor I have taught to a wide range of students for the past 5 years. I specialise in the English language as I am a CELTA qualified teacher, a student of MA Degree in Applied Linguistics and an amateur writer.

No matter what subjects we study or what activities we engage in on a daily basis English is the common `denominator` of everything. Our familiarity with this prime skill determines every successful outcome we strive towards in life from high grades and good jobs to exerting influence over others.

Apart from my English-related credentials, I hold a vast number of other qualifications across several areas including, but not limited to, business, arts & humanities and IT as well as several vocational qualifications ranging from car maintenance to operation of industrial vehicles such as P.O.E.T. and Forklift Counterbalance.

This passion of mine for education has enhanced my ability to teach English in virtually every field imaginable as opposed to the majority of English tutors who teach English only for the purposes of passing an academic exam.

Be it therefore for GCSEs or A-levels, IELTS, business, creative writing or even personal development I can provide you with a well-structured route of learning that is tailored to your needs and aspirations.

Finally, I also offer the option of a full refund should the student fail to meet their targets. Terms and conditions on this offer can be discussed in person.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring involves a flexible way of teaching that is tailored to every student, respecting everyone's differences in terms of working, thinking and studying.
