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 currently work on a one to one and small group basis with students of various ages in a Medical Pupil Referral unit I find the one to one contact simulating and highly rewarding. I have taught for over 30 years and am an Advanced Skills Teacher. I have always wanted to teach and love what I do. I am patient, understanding, supportive and highly aware of the need to enable the student to achieve. I work through praise and careful guidance work to ensure the student gets the most from the one to one contact. I am educated to Masters degree level and have taught in both comprehensive schools and special needs units. I believe in a child centred approach to learning and always aim to work for and with the student.

Teaching Experience:

I was Head of Drama in a school in Dorset for seventeen years. During that time I worked extensively with children of all ages. I have trained teachers and guided those new to the teaching profession successfully through the early stages of their careers in teaching. I have directed numerous school and examination productions which has given me an excellent knowledge of plays and productions for use with English and Drama teaching. I have taught adults GCSE Psychology with a very good success rate. I have enjoyed the opportunities teaching in both the comprehensive and adult sectors have given me and I hope to continue this type of tuition through a more individual and one to one basis.
I am currently working with students who are unable to access school due to medical conditions. This has enabled me to further develop and extend my approaches and strategies for one to one teaching and small group situations.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is always to work with the needs of the student involved. I always listen to their requirements and tailor my teaching to what is needed. I value student interaction and would hope to use as much student based ideas and thoughts where this is possible. I have an attitude to teaching which always aims to enable the learner in a positive and supportive environment.
I have a good sense of humour, I am patient , a very good listener and an individual who works in a proactive manner. I create and work with a range of resources which are specific to the topic and area being studied and also create resources tailor made for the student involved. I use praise and positive areas continually as I believe we all like to receive positive thoughts about ourselves and this is a means to promoting a good and solid foundation to study techniques.
Although I have been teaching for a long time I really enjoy the challenges,satisfaction and creativity teaching offers. For every student I work with I plan and create personal , individual lessons and approaches which are appropriate for each student. This approach has led to satisfied individuals at all levels.

Personal Description:
I am a political enthusiast who has spent the last few years building up a successful department in a secondary school to impart this enthusiasm to students from a region where political apathy is rife. I am a keen cyclist and traveller and enjoy the occasional healthy debate on a variety of topical issues.
I graduated from Birmingham University's School of Education with a PGCE (Med level) in History and Citizenship following on from my previous qualifications; Master of Arts in Global Politics and Human rights Law and Bachelor of Arts In International Relations and Law (LLB). In addition I have A-levels in English Literature, Maths, Physics and General Studies. Although these are not my specialist subjects, I would be willing and able to offer additional support in these areas if applicable.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently the Head of Faculty for Humanities at a secondary school in the West Midlands. I have seven years teaching experience as well as four years experience tutoring students, including one-to-one sessions, in Politics, Law, History and English as a foreign language. I teach all age groups with a focus on GCSE and A-Level Studies. In my tenure as Head of Political Studies my students have achieved 100% pass rate at A-Level and AS and all students have met or surpassed their target grades.
Within my role I have built up links with local MPs and MEPs and this has led to the successful running of annual Parliament visits and four visits to the European Union Parliament in both Strasbourg and Brussels. In addition I have twice led a debating team of students in the international EUROSCOLA event held at the European Parliament where students debate a variety of issues against over 600 students from the other EU member states.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a fresh approach to tutoring, using a variety of teaching methods and resources tailored for the individual learning styles of the tutee. Videos, newspapers, past exam papers and a library of resources allow for a holistic approach in delivering specialist subject knowledge. I use contemporary case studies and a high level of ICT literacy to make learning both interesting and accessible. In addition, my working knowledge of the major exam boards means that all sessions will be customised for maximum benefit in any given tuition agreement. I am happy to teach across all age groups and abilities and have experience of working with vulnerable/hard to reach children, and those with special educational needs.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Description:
I started training as a teacher shortly after leaving college. I had to abandon the idea in my last year due to my fathers untimely death. Teaching has always been the center of my strengths from an early age, I had watched my father teach in primary and felt confident that one day I would do the same thing. Although teaching is a thankless task and many we teach forget us very quickly. I do feel it provides us with a self satisfaction that we have made a difference. My academic qualification started at East College following through to Greenwich University and ended with the Brentwood Diocese receiving a CCRS in Religious studies.

Teaching Experience:

My Post graduation in Certificate of education was accredited by the Greenwich University. My Humanities Degree was through the Open University and continuing accreditation from the Trinity College where I received a CertTESOL qualification in English. In addition I attended the Brentwood Diocese to take up 8 modules in order to receive CCRS in Religious studies allowing me to teach in Catholic Schools.
I have taught in both Primary and Secondary school and colleges. I have my own Tutoring academy in Essex that services over thirty students a week. Although I have already secured a foot hold in the field of teaching I believe that my skills and dedication to the field is strengthened by my full vocation and love I have in education and learning.

Tutoring Approach:

Students at all level are unique. Every child no matter what level they are work towards their best ability. We as teachers should always adhere to the child's needs not what we can offer but what they can give us. Learning is a to way participation. Understanding and perseverance is only part of teaching we must empathies ourselves to the child and find the weakness and strengthen it. I have said I have my own academy but I have done it not through advertising but referrals from past students. After almost 4 years its still the same as it as always was.

Personal Description:
Are you worried about your child's progress in Maths or English? Do you want your child to go to a Grammar School? Would you like your child to achieve their potential? I can help.
I am an enthusiastic teacher who has a wide range of experience as a teacher, headteacher and an SEN Adviser with primary aged children. I love seeing children progress and become more confident in areas in which they have previously struggled. I keep myself constantly informed of new and exciting ways to motivate children and achieve their potential.
Exceptional Teaching, in my opinion, is a natural craft that some people have and others simply don't. I come from a family of teachers (my mother and also my sisters are teachers). It is a profession I have always enjoyed and have a special passion for. The bonus of course, is excellent grades.

Teaching Experience:

I have been in education for over 25 years, as a teacher, a Headteacher and an SEN Adviser. I have been fortunate enough to work in a range of excellent schools where I have taught all year groups. I pride myself in being able to help children, whatever their needs or abilities, to love learning and achieve their potential. I have tutored 1-1 for the last five years and have good relationships with the children and families that I work with. These children have gone on to achieve excellent results in their chosen areas e.g. improved confidence, improved attainment, achieving SATS levels 4 and 5 and succeeding in entrance exams for Grammar, Wide-ability and Independent schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My personal attitude towards all learning (especially tutoring) is that all children are entitled to a high quality education, which is tailored towards children's individual needs, so that they are able to make sufficient progress and enjoy their learning. I approach tutoring with a positive, can do attitude. I tailor each session to the individual child's strengths, weaknesses, interests and goals. I believe anyone can do well; it's just a question of finding the right way to learn it. One of the things that I find prevents children and adults from learning, particularly Mathematics, is the feeling of being rubbish at it. Your mindset certainly influences how well you do and once you are relaxed you learn so much better. I employ a combination of direct approaches and child-centered approaches when giving individual tutoring support. I am a very committed person, and will always strive to make sure that all children who are tutored are able to achieve their potential.

I am flexible, friendly and approachable person, having a key commitment towards high quality teaching and learning for all children. I firmly believe that different people learn in different ways, so no one way will suit all. You probably know more than you think, we will just work to make sure it can all be communicated. I look forward to discussing your child and how I can help and develop their potential.

Personal Description:
I am Ruth, a 33 year old Philosophy and RS teacher at an FE college.

I have excellent communication skills, a caring and yet thorough approach to teaching and the logical ability to turn the abstract or seemingly obscure into something simple and digestible. I am adaptable and always tailor my tutoring style to the needs and preferences of the individual learner.

I have a first class honours degree in Philosophy from the University of Southampton and have experience teaching literacy skills to children and adults; including those with learning disabilities.

My interests lie in the arts including reading philosophy and attending public philosophy talks at universities, visiting art exhibitions, art history, theatre novels and music.

My vocational background is connected with supporting children and young adults on the autistic spectrum and who have learning disabilities. I was a Regional Training Manager for a large domiciliary care company and I trained carers in the following areas:

Equality & Diversity
Health and Safety
Moving & Handling
Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
The Mental Capacity Act
Dementia Awareness
Basic First Aid
Food Hygiene
Infection Control
Fire Awareness
Risk Assessments
Recording & Reporting.

Teaching Experience:

2014-present: I teach A Level Philosophy and RS at a local Sixth Form College.

2014 - Gained my PGCE FE.

Taught at Brockenhurst College, Hampshire.

2013:
Gained UK TEFL teaching award.

2012 - 2013:
Trained carers.

2012:
Gained Level 4 Qualification in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS).

2010-current:
Tutoring.

2006-2007:
Hampshire Autistic Society
Osborne School
Winchester.

Tutoring Approach:

I value education highly and would love the knowledge I have acquired, and continue to acquire, to be put to good use and, in the words of Alan Bennet, 'passed on'.

My tutoring style is relaxed and natural, positive and focussed. I believe in supporting individuals to develop independent learning skills and self-confidence in order to achieve their goals to the best of their abilities. My personal aim is to foster enthusiasm for subjects I genuinely love and believe to be important in life.

The key, in my opinion, to educational progression is to focus on building confidence and encouraging independent thinking as well as equipping individuals with critical and evaluative skills.

I intend to help make learning as enjoyable and manageable as possible. Every individual is different and therefore learns through different means, at different paces. For this reason I endeavour to get to know individual students in order to develop enjoyable individual learning programmes.

Personal Description:
Committed & Determined to Make Difference in Young Children's Life!!

I intend to provide tailored guidance, personal care and involvement, helping students to understand the fundamental concepts while developing their confidence and teaching them techniques of problem solving and time saving.

Since couple of years I started giving personal tuitions to different age group students during spare time.I believe one of the reasons inspires me to teach is the freedom to be creative in the sessions and the potential for spontaneity at the same time. This passion for teaching was reflected as the exceptional result of students and feedback from their parents.

I have always enjoyed and excelled in biology, gaining grade A at Year 10 (GCSE equivalent) and degree in biology. I believe as a biologist I can encourage and inspire my student to study this very interesting and important stream of science. I can help them to understand how our own body functions and how different living things use dissimilar ways to do the similar things, like making energy, eating, and moving. Studying biology will also help them to understand that there are many living things which are harmful, and learning about them can help us to overcome diseases and infections. I can help my students to appreciate the wide career scope of the biology ranging from Medical Sciences to Biotechnology, Anthropology, Biomedical Engineering, Food Technology, Genetic Engineering, Veterinary Medicine and Therapy.

Personal Description:
I am currently a student studying Economics at the London School of Economics. I am in my final year studying Economics at LSE. I graduated last summer from St Paul's Girls School receiving 3 A*s in Mathematics, Economics and Geography, as well as an A in Further Maths. I am a very friendly, happy, relaxed person to be around. I like Indian dancing, debating, playing Chess, cooking, watching Bollywood films and kickboxing in my spare time. In school, my favorite lessons were Economics, Maths and Geography, which helped me get understand the interdisciplinary nature of Economics. I have a younger brother and sister, and often explain complex concepts or theories to them in a simple, understandable and fun way. I have tutored several people in Maths and also was successful in tutoring someone Chemistry and Maths for AS Level. I have lived in 4 continents and speak 6 languages.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in a Kumon Centre teaching English and Maths for a year. I also volunteered in a primary school teaching Maths and reading to children in Year 3. I have also tutored out of school in Maths and Chemistry A Level and have received excellent feedback. Now I am doing more Maths tuition, as well as 2 students in 11+ entrance exams, which I have had a personal successful experience with (Wimbledon High, St Paul's, City of London Girls, Tiffin Girls, Nonsuch girls).
Recently I tutored Chemistry AS Level OCR and Maths AS Level Edexcel Higher(April 2012- August 2012), 11+ Maths tuition (July 2012- Aug 2012), GCSE Maths tuition Edexcel (September 2012- present), 11+ Maths and General Science (September 2012- present).

Tutoring Approach:

I like to teach people in a very active, forward way. I also use many different ways as children often have different needs and abilities. I mainly focus on their age and try and tutor as much as the syllabus states, and even more if neccessary. I will constantly be engaging myself with my tutee, and do my best to make sure they understand a topic or concept before moving on. I like to review previous theories, problems or concepts by small tests or quizzes and my approach can best be described as dynamic, fast and fun. I am very good at reviewing material and offer summary sheets and quizzes to make sure my tutee has grasped the concepts which I have bought, and I also do weekly review sessions to go over material I have given the tutee to work on during the week. I do not give tests as such, but do go through past papers with students, and make sure they are working on at least one paper a week, to mark progress.

Personal Description:
I have a BA (Hons) in Classics from the University of Oxford, followed by an MA in Classics from King's College London, for which I received a Distinction. I started tutoring Classics part-time in September 2013 for Kaleido Tutors (can supply reference), then expanded to freelance work in Spring 2014, when I began tutoring English Language and Literature. Despite my academic credentials in Classics, my love and learning of English literature has remained strong since A-level (Grade A), and I am currently researching for a PhD which will cover both Classical and English literature (likely starting at King's College London, Jan 2015). My academic aspirations do not hamper my commitment to tutoring: not only do I thoroughly enjoy teaching, but it helps to ground and shape my interest in the subjects of Classics and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring Latin and Greek for a year (starting immediately after finishing my MA in Classics in Sept 2013), and English Language & Literature since Spring 2014:
- All tutees (freelance/Kaleido Tutors) experienced at least a two grade increase, with most achieving >90% in end of year exams (Summer 2014).
- One Latin tutee went from near-bottom to top of his class to top (97% end of year result).

Tutoring Approach:

The great advantage of one-to-one tutoring over classroom teaching is that I can pay full attention to the uniqueness of the tutee. Everyone is different, and I am able to match my skills to the tutee's needs, iron out any particular foibles, and thus increase the tutee's confidence in the subject. Tuition in both English and Classical subjects centres around the same skill set: attention to detail, effective lesson structure, allowing the tutee the freedom to find the correct answer, as opposed to just lecturing.

My favourite aspect of Classical and English literature is the unparalleled connection between the nuts and bolts of the languages and the grand themes they explore. I believe this relationship is key to the effective tuition of language and literature: I like to find a literary theme my tutee is interested in and tie it to the intricacies of the language - grammar does not have to be learnt in a bubble.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 2nd year Financial Economics student at the University of Kent, so I will be be free to tutor during the Christmas, Easter and summer holidays.

My availability:
20th December until 19th January
14th April until 30th April
12th June until late September

I studied maths, further maths, computing and economics at A-level and AS level and have a keen interest in economics and maths.

Teaching Experience:

During my GCSE and final year at my sixth form, I was appointed as a maths workshop mentor. This consisted of me helping the AS maths students who were having difficulties with their homework and exam questions etc. I have previously tutored young students for maths and english, who have improved their performance over time.

Tutoring Approach:

In general students come up to me with a list of questions that they might be struggling with and we'd work through them together providing a step to step method as to how to approach and solve the problems. In addition if a student is completely stuck on a topic then I am also willing to explain it from the basics and build on their understanding. :)
