Personal Description:
I am a very keen and enthusiastic university student 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 studying (Business Degree at Northumbria University) with my sports (rock climbing and snowboarding), work and social life.

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 such as a B at A level Business Studies (please ask if you would like a reference). I will be finishing my final year of studies mid May 2013 and will be available to teach from this time onward.

Teaching Experience:

All throughout my first and second year at university I was working 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 A Level Business Students 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 have an easygoing and pleasant demeanour, a nice sense of humour, and I generally get on well with my tutees. Although I like to have a friendly relationship with my tutee, I try to employ a professional manner at all times. I am a man in his early, middling years, who enjoys seeing others fulfil their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher, who has taught privately one to one for a number of years. I have primarily taught English on a one to one basis for tutees who are preparing for their GCSE and "A" level examinations, but I am also experienced in helping tutees improve their literacy skills from a young age. I also have a wealth of experience of teaching English as a Foreign language on a one to one basis. I have taught in a number of language schools over the years, and at one point started a language school in southern Italy. I have considerable experience teaching English up to "A" level standard in secondary education, and I have over fifteen years experience to draw upon.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one teaching, by its nature, is very intense, so it is very important to introduce variety as much as possible. A mixture of written work, as well as oral work, if required is essential to keep the tutee focused and interested in what you are teaching. It helps, sometimes, after an intense session, fot the tutee to have a short break, before continuing.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher with Cambridge MA, PGCE & DELTA, with 30 years' experience of teaching in a variety of contexts including general secondary school English and Drama, GCSE, A Level, IB, and tuition at university and postgraduate level, including assistance with theses and similar.
I have considerable experience of TEFL/TOEFL and a successful record in teaching Cambridge FCE, CPE, etc as well as Business English classes for non-native professionals.
I recently returned to the UK from Spain for family reasons and I am new to the York area. I'm taking time out for a while to write that elusive million-seller or sitcom! Meanwhile I am a member of SfEP and work part time as a professional proofreader and copy editor. I am very happy to help groups or individuals with their academic needs.

Teaching Experience:

15 years in all key stages of secondary school education in England.
5 years Adult Education, TEFL and private tuition in the UK.
10 years teaching a British curriculum in an international secondary school in Spain at all key stages incl. GCSE, A Level and IB.
Group and individual EFL classes for children and adults, including Business English for professionals and TOEFL in an American-affiliated college.
I have an excellent record of success in preparing students for English and Drama exams - GCSE, A Level, International Baccalaureat and beyond - as well as for Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency in English.
Amongst other notables, I was employed as personal tutor to the actress Rebecca Hall as a child and also to one of Tony Blair's sons!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a supportive approach and a friendly relationship, but without forgetting it's work: you're paying me because I can improve your (or your children's) future prospects.

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 am a easy going and friendly 28 year old female Year 1 teacher at a local primary school. I am also an experienced tutor. As well as gaining my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE Primary) from Cambridge University, I also have a 2:1 degree in Psychology from Loughborough University.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified teacher with QTS status. I am currently teaching a Year 1 class, however I have taught in Year 6 and Year 2. I also have a wide range of experience with children throughout the primary level in various different schools, including 1:1 work. As well as my classroom role, I have also held the position of Humanaties Co-ordinator (History and Geography) and science co-ordinator. I am also on the extended leadership team. I have also had a lot of experience with children with Special Educational Needs, including Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD and Down Syndrome, during my teaching career where I have held the position of SENCO and through 1-1 work carried out before. As a am still a full time teacher I am up to date on all the latest approaches, strategies and methods. I am also able to assess and level your child accurately.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that every child is an individual learner and therefore they need a personal and tailored tutoring experience. As I am working with a large mixture of children every day I am very capable of adapting to their individual needs. I believe that learning should be fun if the child is to engage with the process fully. My aim is to allow your child to achieve their full potential, which every child is capable of with the right teacher. I am willing to teach your child in a group or individual setting, which ever suits yours and your child's needs best.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher in my 30s. I am friendly, patient and approachable and enjoy helping children with their learning. I am able to provide help with KS1 and KS2 English/Literacy (reading, writing, spelling or a combination of these), and KS1 and KS2 maths. I particularly work with children who find the subject difficult and would like a little extra help and children who have specific special educational needs. My specialist subject is history and am happy to provide support for this subject at primary level also. I do not tutor for school entrance exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in education for 10 years, as a class teacher in Years 3 and 5, a museum teacher and currently as a Year 5 and 6 teacher in a village school in the Forest of Dean. I have been home tutoring for three years. The children I have tutored have gained in confidence, improved their skills and moved up groups in school within months.

"We can't thank you enough for all the help and guidance you have given H during the time you have taught him." (Parent)

"Thank you for helping me get better at maths and litercay. Since you have been helping me I have moved up a set to a better class. I am pleased about this, as now I feel more confident." (Year 5 pupil)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning should be fun, active and relevant to the child's interests and needs. I tailor lessons to the child's abilities, learning styles and interests, and include suitable levels of challenge to help them progress. I believe praise and encouragement is conducive to success and in raising a child's confidence if they are struggling. I am used to working with a wide range of children who have different abilities and interests, and can quickly assess the level they are working at and tailor their learning to suit their needs and interests.

Personal Description:
My name is Mikayla and I have been teaching for 3 years now in primary schools. I had year 5 for 2 years and year 3 for 1 year and am currently a PPA teacher teaching Reception to year 6.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have plentiful amounts of experience working with children and young people. In the past I have worked as a nanny and childminder.

Teaching Experience:

I have a breadth of teaching experience having taught in a variety of different primary and secondary schools across London, Kent and East Sussex.

In 2010, I undertook international placements and have experience working with a variety of different pupils in varied settings including primary schools, international middle schools, pupil referral units and centres which cater for children with special educational needs.

I have references and a current CRB check which you are more than welcome to have a copy of.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach in teaching varies according to the young person I am tutoring. I believe in an individual support programme which is catered around the needs of the individual.

All children and young people learn in different ways, some preferring practise, others preferring more practical demonstrations. Much of my tutoring will be through encouraging the child to think about the subject from different perspectives. Whilst teaching cannot avoid scenario's where children will have to listen - I try to ensure that activities are selected which carefully match the needs of the tutee.

I believe the best results are achieved when you know the child and their interests; once this professional relationship has been established, future sessions can be planned for considering the child or young persons interests.

For example, one of the children I tutor needed support in his writing, his parents were concerned with his understanding of different texts (fiction, non-fiction, reports etc). It is common for boys to be unenthused by writing so I found out that his passion was in sports and football (surprise surprise!) It wasn't long before this young lad was looking through information texts about football and reading newspaper articles about his favourite football team. This provided the perfect opportunity to discuss which components of the text provided what information; this was then linked to the features of reports, recounts, information texts etc.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher and a friendly approachable tutor, holding a physics degree from Imperial College London and a Masters degree in Science Communication from UWE Bristol.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science at several outstanding secondary schools in Milton Keynes and am up to date with the current curriculum and assessment requirements. More recently I have been teaching children who are out of school for medical reasons and have tutored a number of students both in school and privately at both primary and secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

After identifying the tutees needs I work with students to support them in the school curriculum, focussing on any weak areas. I use varying teaching techniques to suit the individual student and help prepare them for assessment.

Personal Description:
I am currently a teacher of English in London secondary school, having qualified in Liverpool.

I previously worked part-time for an MP in Westminster as a researcher. I have varied interests, and later in my career intend to work in international development, especially surrounding the role of education.

My last degree, and MSc in Contemporary India, was a multidisciplinary social sciences degree, incorporating politics, economics, anthropology, international relations and statistics. My dissertation focused on English Language education and social aspiration.

In my spare time I enjoy training for athletics (middle distance and cross country), playing and listening to music, and cycling.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced, qualified teacher and have taught students at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level. As well as developing myself as a teaching professional, I am working towards and MA in education to further explore barriers to learning and teaching styles.

I have taught English as a foreign language in India to degree-level students, formulating my own teaching materials. As part of my teaching, I included cultural and geographic content to help prepare students in rural and small town India for employment with multi-national companies.

I have also volunteered as a mentor with the Cardinal Hume Centre in Westminster, coaching young homeless and unemployed people with their English and ICT skills, job searching, and providing motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an experienced tutor, having tutored students with specific needs such as History A-Level revision and essay writing support for university students. My tutoring will be tailored to the needs of the tutee, although at every opportunity I attempt to inspire and excite to engage my students beyond examination specifications.

I have a thorough knowledge of GCSE and A Level examinations, and I am adept and equipping tutees with the skills and knowledge to attain high scores in these key qualifications. When tutoring, I plan to listen to each student's needs and prepare appropriate assistance and guidance.

Having completed much revision for my degrees and A-levels, I can share my strategies to revise work previously covered, using time management and goals. If a student is able to guide their own learning, I will support and encourage this approach, aiding their independence.

I have taught as Lecturer at under-grad level in the department of mechanical engineering, UET Lahore for almost three years. In January 2007, I joined the department, as Lab Engineer and then promoted to the position of Lecturer after completing Master's degree in 2009. The university and the department claim top position in national ranking and also enjoy the honour of being the biggest and oldest ones in the country. My career of about two years here was full of struggle and effort for excellence in teaching and research.
In addition to that I have have given tuitions as Home Tutor to GCSE and O/A level individuals and small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I always have the highest expectations of pupils and always have had, even when it was fashionable for learning to be more "child centred"; this is an approach I have found to pay rich dividends in terms of a pupil's academic and personal development. I have always managed to maintain friendly and relaxed environment tailored exactly to what the students requires. Above all I can offer general education and career advice when it matters the most and have observed that my students usually make fast progress towards their goals and good outputs.

Personal Description:
I am 45 years old, and have a young family with one child, currently in Year 6. My wife is a headteacher locally. I have taught in a number of different school systems, including Primary, Junior, Middle and Secondary schools.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 20 years, teaching from Years 2 to Year 7 covering all Primary subjects, specialising in Leading both Literacy and Maths. I also have extensive experience teaching English as a foreign language, to foreign students.
For the last 7 years I have taught in year 6 and year 5, so have a lot of SATS preparation experience, in English and Maths. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility, from class teacher to Deputy headteacher. Currently I teach a year 6 class, as Senior teacher, and part of the senior management team, in a Primary school in Redhill. One of my current role involves working with colleagues to develop their practice in the class room.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe every percieved problem in a child's learning has a solution. The important thing is that every child is an individual, and therefore learns in different ways. This requires different teaching approaches to be used, depending on the situation. Flexibility is an important skill in a teacher, being able to adapt to whatever the needs of the child are.

Personal Description:
A highly energetic and enthusiastic individual, specializing in teaching Biology,Chemistry,Physics, Mathematics and IELTs.I am a friendly person and a professional tutor. By qualification, I am a Doctor of Pharmacy and also hold an M Phil degree in Pharmaceutics. i have also got an overall score of 8 bands in IELTs which demonstrates my strong communication skills. My tutoring experience has made me patient and analytical, so, I always adapt the most suitable teaching approach which is individualized based on a student`s personality, mental caliber and his attitude towards learning. In addition to this, I have myself got distinctions throughout my academic career.

What makes me passionate about teaching is the fact that I have always been rejoiced by the thought of making a positive contribution to other people`s lives, and teaching young students, by far, is the most effective way of doing so. I am deeply inspired by my primary school math teacher whose incredible teaching skills transformed me into a bright and hardworking student from a very mediocre and average one. It was the time when I realized that incorporating social skills successfully into the routine methods of teaching can make learning far more interesting and easy.

I customize my teaching style according to the learning needs and mental caliber of the student. Generally, I start a new lesson by giving the student a detailed concept of the scientific topic. Later on, I elaborate the general and specific details of the topic with the help of examples. Afterwards, I put forth similar problems in front of the student to solve by himself, in order to assess his understanding of the topic. I also share with my students all the possible questions and different forms of a question that they might come across in the examination out of a selected topic. Moreover, I also give them examination techniques to solve such problems effectively.

Teaching Experience:

9 years of teaching experience of science subjects(Physics, Chemistry, Biology), English and Math to the students of KS2, KS3, GCSE and A levels.I started my teaching career in 2004 with A-Level and GCSE teaching. In 2008, when I completed my Pharmacy Degree, I joined professional bodies as a teacher. I have also been tutoring IELTs for the last two years.

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

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

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

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

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

Teaching Experience:

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

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

Personal Description:
I have just finished a PhD in Medieval History at the University of Cambridge, studying at King's College. I love the fact that history exercises not only historical methodologies, but also utilises language skills, literary analysis and many study skills. When not researching history, I sing in choirs and operettas.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught both at undergraduate level, in one-on-one and group situations, and at primary level. My undergraduate teaching includes lecturing, seminars on religion across the ages and the role of women in medieval Latin texts, and supervisions relating to early medieval European and Irish history. I have also helped teach primary aged children reading and writing skills when they were having difficulties in the classroom. My experience is therefore very varied, ranging from teaching young children with their own difficulties to the brightest undergraduates in the country.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very much student led. I believe it is of the utmost importance to encourage a student to express their own thoughts and ideas, led by the questioning of their tutor. It is very important to establish a good rapport between student and tutor, in order that communication will be at its best, and a student will always feel comfortable enough to say when they do not understand. One-to-one tutoring is perfect for this approach.
