Personal Description:
I am 24 years old and graduated in 2011 from the University of Oxford (Brasenose College), with a degree in Experimental Psychology. I'm very interested in science and this enthusiasm comes across when encouraging others to find it interesting, too. Making science fun and easy to understand is something I very much enjoy.

Besides this I have four A-grade A-levels in European languages, and spent a year at an international company where I spoke fluent French, Dutch and German on a daily basis. I have always enjoyed learning languages, and believe that learning a language need not necessarily be difficult if approached in the right way.

I am due to begin training as a solicitor next year.

Teaching Experience:

I have varied teaching experience. I spent three months in the summer of 2014 as a youth development professional at a summer camp in Vermont, in the USA. I led activities and 5-day trips into the wilderness, working with 8-16 year olds and being responsible for every aspect of their well-being.

I have been a tutor for two years now and really enjoy supporting learning in different ways depending on what exactly is required. I've taught Psychology, English, Biology, Chemistry and French and look forward to teaching German, too.

Tutoring Approach:

I realise that everyone is an individual, and to me this is the key point about teaching - which I why I vary my approach, explaining things in different ways and encouraging questions until the level of understanding required is reached.

I am very keen to ensure that my tutees develop their understanding, which is why I try to push their existing knowledge further by asking questions, rather than telling them the answer.

I work hard and prepare well for everything I do, and I'd welcome any further discussion on specific details.

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.

My approach to teaching is mainly focussed on grammar, conversation and exercises. However, depending on the nature of the classes (school, academic or casual learning), I tailor my lessons to meet the tutee's personal requirements and needs.

Personal Description:
I'm an experienced tutor and a Cambridge University English graduate. I give students the confidence to write well, excel at exams and make intelligent, original arguments with exciting, engaging and highly rigorous lessons.

I graduated from Christ's College, Cambridge University in 2010, with a 2:1 BA in English. before that I studied at the school of St. Helen and St. Katherine in Abingdon. I definitely still vividly remember what the whole (awful) process of GCSE and A-Level was like, and really understand with the exam techniques necessary to get through with a good grade. I understand how overwhelming it can feel, and the frustration of having to understand not only the subject itself but the correct way to answer. I was lucky enough to have teachers who always made this very clear to me, and the results speak for themselves.

Teaching Experience:

I've been tutoring since secondary school, when my peers would come to me for help with their work and for accessible explanations of the more complex ideas we were looking at. Since leaving school, I've tutored students of all ages, requirements and capabilities - focused mainly on GCSE, AS and A-level preparation all the way through to University Masters - in the areas of English, History, RS, and any other essay-based subject such as Sociology, Classics, Psychology, Business Studies and Geography.

I am particularly specialised in:
- students struggling with severe self-esteem and confidence issues
- students who need that special something to stand out at interview
- students who struggle to get their ideas down on paper and need some fail-safe techniques for constructing essays and arguments under pressure.

I have experience with learning difficulties, especially dyslexia, which I have helped my brother to cope with through his studies for the last few years. To me, it just means having to find another way to approach the information and make it accessible.

Though I'm not formally qualified as TEFL teacher, I've had several foreign students who needed to learn both formal and conversational English from a very basic level of understanding.

I also work with professionals who have writing requirements, including social workers, Lawyers and psychologists.

A couple of recent students include:
Imogen, 22: 3rd year English student at Edinburgh university. We've been working together for the last two years to help her overcome her panic attacks/anxiety over exams, and rebuild her confidence by improving her critical reading and essay technique, and reconnect her with her love of literature. After working together for 12 months, she was able to sit her 2nd year exams and is now completing her final year.

Helen, 18: Helen needed to raise her English A-Level grade from a predicted C to an A to fulfil her dream of studying at Oxford. She was sitting the challenging Cambridge English paper, which requires a much more rigorous style of working; we worked together intensively to develop her coursework, dramatically strengthen her writing skills, and study her texts from interesting new perspectives to create strong and original arguments. After our work together, she achieved an A and won her place at Oxford.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on two things: helping students cut to the heart of complex arguments and make them their own - and rediscovering the pleasure of learning.

I believe that everyone can understand an idea once it's made accessible to them - there's always a way, you've just got to find out what's right for each student. I always spend time to getting to know my students and understanding what makes them tick so we can work in the best possible way for them. The best results come when good exam technique is combined with a thorough understanding of the subject - I make sure that we spend time on both. Most of the time students have never had intensive help with their essay technique; I go through essays with students line by line so that they have absolute clarity on how they can improve. Variety is important - discussion is a great way to understand themes and build their arguments - it's about getting students interested in what they're studying again by putting them back in touch with the bigger picture - why it's important, what's fascinating about it, how it's still relevant today -, and then giving them the tools and the confidence to build strong answers, underpinned by writing exercises, essay/planning practice, and more visual aids like mind-mapping. Together, all these things should create a solid base of knowledge, good results and confident students.

I offer face to face tutoring, language skills, Skype sessions, and editing/help with any essay or piece of extended written work, either face to face or via email.

Personal Description:
I am a young actor living in London. I also write and direct poetry, plays and films. As my father was a Diplomat I spent much of my early life abroad: in Cuba, Hungary and the United States.

After studying Maths, English and Russian at Eton College I spent a year studying acting in New York and cooking in an English restaurant, then studied English and Drama at Bristol and have just finished a BA in Acting at LAMDA. When I'm not writing or in the theatre I'm in the kitchen experimenting.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored several students over the past two years in London. I have helped with English A-Level papers for a boy who got an A grade and will start at Bristol this autumn. I also taught essay-writing and exam technique to a girl who will be starting medicine at Cambridge this autumn.

I also have a lot of experience with learning difficulties as I have helped my younger brother all his studying life through his asperger's and dyslexia.

Tutoring Approach:

My inspiration to work in the arts always came from the books, films, artists and languages I studied at school and at university so I have a great amount of passion and interest in what I teach.

I believe this is very much the most important lesson for any new student to learn: a personal enjoyment and motivation for the subject. Exams are everywhere these days but it is important to remember that an exam is only a method for determining how much you know and if you can find yourself genuinely excited and eager to discuss what you know you are half-way to passing that exam.

Personal Description:
I graduated from Loughborough University with an honours degree in Industrial Chemistry. I then went on to do three years research in Photochemistry to gain a Masters degree from Kingston University. I also have another masters degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Aston in Birmingham and a Masters in Business Administration from Kingston University. I have over 25 years of industrial experience. During my career I took a pro-active role in training and mentoring new graduates joining the firms I worked for, GEC Telecommunications Ltd and Fujitsu plc.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 14 years of teaching experience in business studies at the Open University teaching at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. I have been tutoring KS1 to KS3, GCSE and A-Level students in Science subjects and Mathematics for 3 years. I also tutor English at KS1 to KS3 and GCSE levels. At present I am tutoring KS3, GCSE and A Level students in English, Science Subjects and Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a mentoring and nurturing approach to teaching. I prepare students both at GCSE and A Levels to sit examinations by the three main examining boards in England, namely, Aqa, OCR and Edexcel. I prefer to tutor from home and only take on a very limited number of students so that I can give my full attention to their examination success. I have tutored students who have been deemed not to be high achievers by their schools, but have subsequently gone on to gaining A grades at GCSE. I am highly motivated and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to get letters from students thanking me for helping them to gain examination success. I tutor from home as I have found students perform best in this situation and I also have access to all my teaching resources as necessary to tailor each lesson to suit a particular students needs. Although I feel tutoring from my home is a good approach I am prepared to travel to a student's home but will of course need to charge travel costs.

I am 23 and a qualified teacher, currently an NQT and studied English Literature at University. I can cater for all needs and abilities, as I can in the classroom.

I have always wanted to be a teacher and this has been demonstrated through my choice of work experience in year ten. I grew up with a passion for education and learning. I was educated at a state school and being of the new young generation I can relate to all of the trials and tribulations endured by youngsters having either experienced them myself or knowing someone who has. I can use my personal experiences to help and guide the students as well as empathise.

Teaching Experience:

I have just completed my PGCE (Post-Graduate Certificate in Education) at Swansea Metropolitan University and have a full-time English teaching job in Bridgend. I have had experience in both a band 5 Valley School and a Band 4 school in Bridgend, catering for all abilities.

In year 10 I had my work experience at a local primary school. I assisted the teacher during the lessons and helped them complete their work.
The children I worked with had various levels of ability so the teacher and I had to cater for the children who were learning both slower and faster than the others. I kept patient whilst working with the children and I adapted my approach so that they could understand me. I helped to organise the activities with the teacher before the lesson and helped the children to complete and understand the tasks. I supervised the children and helped them to play carefully and safely during the lunch breaks by being around them and ensuring they were behaving. These skills meant that I gained respect from the children and they trusted me to help and look after them during my work experience. From developing these key leadership skills at such a young age I was able to demonstrate them adequately through my years of working in retail, working my way up from a sales advisor to a supervisor within six months.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style would be firm but fair.
I would help them with certain aspects of their course which they were struggling with and depending on their age I would range with help in essay writing, essay style and approaches to writing essays. I would help guide them through the reading process and close analytical reading, as well as guiding them through the essay writing process.
I would be able to expand their knowledge of the books on the course and help them complete coursework.
I am clearly a strong English student as I have always achieved high grades at school and have continued to study to degree level.
I would be able to produce results to the highest of their capability and extend their knowledge of English.

Personal Description:
Having gained three A grades at A Level, and a further two AS, I studied English Literature, Film Studies and Drama at The University of Manchester. From here I went on to study at the London Film Academy where I graduated with a Distinction in Film Making and at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts where I studied Directing. I have subsequently qualified to teach English as a foreign language (TFL accredited by the University of Kingston).

Outside of teaching, I am co-founder of imaginary friends, a young theatre production company with whom I have written, devised and directed theatre for various London venues. I am interested in history, politics and art. As such, I enjoy visiting galleries, sights of historical interest and museums. I keep up to date with current affairs and campaigns and I love to travel. In 2011 I won the Huss-Smickler Prize for poetry.

Teaching Experience:

My experience as a tutor ranges from KS1 to degree level and I am eager to build a rapport with tutees of all ages and backgrounds. I am comfortable teaching English Literature and Language, History, Creative Writing, Citizenship, Government and Politics, Critical Thinking, Film Studies, Drama and Maths. I have also coached many pupils in preparation for the 7, 8 and 11 plus exams. Recently I have been working full time in primary school, preparing Year 6 pupils for the SATS examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and thorough tutor, committed to unlocking the potential that lies in every student. To do so I feel it is important to create bespoke lesson plans and learning strategies, tailored with care and imagination to the specific needs of each tutee.

Rather than supplying a pupil with answers, I will always encourage a pupil to achieve the satisfaction of finding it for themselves. This method is helpful in committing method as well as material to memory and creates students who are confident in their understanding of what they are studying. It also helps me to understand the way in which a pupil thinks so that I may present ideas in a way that is appealing and accessible to them, as well as identify gaps in their knowledge/understanding.

I encourage 'joined-up-thinking' in my pupils with the aim of equipping them to analyse and improve their work independently, apply the skills they have acquired to other areas of study and cultivate a genuine interest in their subject by realising its relevance to the world outside of the classroom.

Personal Description:
I am a 41 yr old graduate of Oxford University, where I studied French and German, and a postgraduate of the University of Manchester, where I obtained a Masters and Doctorate in English. I'm currently an Associate Tutor at the Universities of Salford and Edge Hill. I live in West Yorkshire, but can also cover South Lancs and Manchester.

Teaching Experience:

I'm really enjoying teaching some individual pupils at GCSE and A-level at the moment and now have the time to take on some more.

I have been teaching English in Higher Education since 2004. During this time I also taught an A-level student English on an individual basis, as extra preparation for Oxbridge entry - the student gained a place at Oxford. I've also taught two summer schools for visiting American students at the University of Manchester, and a first year university student privately last year.

I have experience with AQA syllabuses in French GCSE and English (Literature) GCSE and A-level (Gothic and Pastoral), and also OCR French.



I also worked for some years in the retail/hospitality sector, where I was an induction trainer, and had some involvement with NVQ assessment.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the most important thing in teaching is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where students are not afraid to ask any questions. I like to avoid overt formality, and make the teaching as enjoyable as possible. I'm very encouraging and positive, but within this will always offer constructive criticism when it's needed. I make sure sessions end with clear goals about what students need to do to improve - clear and achieveable goals, that I will check your progress with. I enjoy teaching a great deal, and will push you to achieve your very best.

For under 16s, I have a programme for teaching English, French, and German. This includes conversation, grammar, composition, and working with literature suited to the pupil's age range. It's flexible and pitched to any age and ability between 11 and 16.

Personal Description:
My name is Clementine. I am a Third year English and Drama student a Royal Holloway University of London. I am bilingual in English and French.
I was born in Australia. My education was conducted between these two countries and as a result I have a double culture and a great interest in travel and literature. I have been trained under two different forms of education and have been taught efficient methods of work. My passion for trying out new experiences has led to me learning Spanish.
I have a great desire to communicate and interact with others- this is why I went in to tutoring. Using all my travel and personal experience has come in quite handy for inspiring students. This has helped me find interesting sources to make lessons more diversified and varied.
Hobbies include reading ( a lot !), theatre, fencing and debating in the Shakespeare Society.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for the past 2 and half years. I teach a wide range of students- from 4 to 13 years olds - in various subjects ranging from English and French Literature to Reading and Writing skills.
I follow my students for the quasi-totality of the past year, helping with English and Literature and boosting confidence skills in Oral presentation skills.
If needed I can produce references.

Tutoring Approach:

The way I conduct lessons is very simple- the session is planned out with the student to encourage them to an organised and eventually autonomous method. Any point that is not well assimilated is reepxlained and focused on. The lessons will follow different difficulty and themes - these can be arranged from a selection to tailor to each pupil's needs.
The focus in such lessons is to encourage the student's progression in anyway possible. Small tasks will be given now and then to check on the student's progression.

For students wishing to enlarge their knowledge of English Literature, emphasis is put on the latter (my specialisation being the 19th century rise of the novel) and contemporary culture. Themes range from different periods of English history to contemporary issues that rock today's world.

French lessons are held in a similar manner with the general aim of not only further knowledge but enjoyment in the pursuit of it.

Personal Description:
When I moved to France at the age of 13 with my parents, not one of us spoke a word of the language - other than the vague memories of the begins of GCSE, with the only words springing to mind being 'ruler' and 'pencil'. Well that's not very useful is it!

I'll be honest, I didn't have friends for the first few months there because of the language barrier (it didn't help either that I was home-schooled so it was incredibly hard for me to even meet people!). So I just had to learn the language. In teaching myself it, I know what works, I know the easiest ways to memorise words and phrases, I know what to do and what will be easiest for you.

After three years of living in France, my parents decided to pack everything up and move back to the UK... It broke my heart. I spent so long, so many hours teaching myself and changing my own ways and then JUST as I was laughing at French jokes and making them up myself, we leave.

So of course, it was my first choice to study at college, not only did I get a head-start in the class with my now fluent tongue, I had the chance to continue and grow.

I completed my AS Level and my A2 Level in French, gaining an A in both (I was 0.50% off and A* - which is the highest grade the college had ever had for the A2 Level French despite the college having had native French speakers take the course).

My passion for Italian stems from my father's family being Sicilian. We moved there, also when I was 13, however, sadly we only spent a very brief time there - it was a spontaneous country-hop so we really just were not prepared for the culture shock. Again, none of us spoke the language, so I began teaching myself and then continued again when I came back to the UK to study. I'm currently awaiting both my AS and A2 Level results for Italian.

English is my native language and I have received an A* in my GCSE, now I am awaiting my AS Level results for English Language - and next year I will be continuing on to study A2. I can teach you up to GCSE level in English or to become fluent in the language if you are wanting to learn the language from either Italian or French.

I am your best option and I will deliver, I am your first class ticket to language knowledge. All aboard!

Teaching Experience:

I have no formal teaching experience - as I'm still finishing my final year of college and currently applying to university, I have however been teaching French online with the use of Twitter and regularly respond to my 3000+ followers' questions and update my page daily with useful phrases, every day speech and more complex language issues... Anything that anyone asks about really!

Tutoring Approach:

I do it the right way, the way I would have wanted to have been taught. No unnecessary memorising. No difficult approaches. No complex babbling.

I won't just be setting you work, I will be working with you. All you need to do is let me know what exactly you want to learn. Even if your answer is 'Everything!', then we'll get down to it.

This is simple. Language is what we do as humans. So, let's do it!
