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 a hard working individual who is passionate about the English language. I have a large degree of writing and proof reading experience, achieved through working in both China and Japan, along with many media related roles within the UK. I am a native English speaker who has a very strong command of the language both orally and academically. I hold a 2:1 degree in Mass Communications and I am CELTA qualified, a Cambridge affiliated teaching qualification. I have a strong interest in China, I speak Mandarin to near fluency and I aim to achieve proficiency in the near future.

I achieved a Pass B grade in terms of my CELTA qualification which I completed in August 2015. Only a minority of trainees receive such a grade, which is above standard, which proves I have an excellent command of the English language both orally and academically.

At the moment I provide a focus on the following:

English Language GCSE and TESOL.

For Language GCSE tuition I can successfully improve leaners` ability when writing to argue, persuade and describe. This will be done through effective planning, structuring, a variety of punctuation and vocabulary while building towards a climax and writing memorable conclusions. It is important to include the rule of three, alliteration, personification, appealing to the senses, rhetorical questions, emotive language, emotive anecdotes, a variety of sentence and paragraph lengths and so on. I also have an emphasis of going through past papers and teaching students how to successfully answer questions that require a focus on the writers` feelings and thoughts, comparing language features and identifying effective language etc.


I can also provide assistance with primary English and work on all aspects of the language.

In terms of TESOL, I have experience teaching English as a foreign language to people of all ages and will certainly be able to help in any area of the language you wish to focus on.

For non-native speakers of English studying in the UK, I can help with writing essays as I have a large degree of writing and proof reading experience, along with achieving good marks in all of my essays at university.

I am happy to help people learn English for what ever reason they are doing so. I can help with general English, professional English, GCSE English literature and A level English literature, preparation for IELTS, preparing for interviews, helping with CV's and cover letters, and also help learners studying at university. I can help those studying if English is their second language through improving grammar, reading and writing in a style that is suitable in the UK. I can also help native English speakers with essays on film studies and journalism.

Teaching Experience:

Writing skills - I have excellent writing skills and can help learners of English improve their writing in a variety of ways from cover letters, CV's, creative writing to academic essays and preparation for writing exams.

Pronunciation - I am a native English speaker born in London so I have an accent very close to the Queen's spoken English. I can successfully improve learners pronunciation of spoken English. I have knowledge of the phonemic scri pt and can help with individual word stress and sentence stress. For young speakers, I have experience of teaching phonics.

Professional English - I am able to teach English suitable for professional working environments

Reading - Reading for gist, scanning, reading for specific information, reading for detail and extended reading. Also helping young learners to improve their reading both native and non-native speakers.

Grammar - I enjoy helping learners improve their grammar and recognise the importance it holds. This is especially important to those learning English as a second language.



At the moment I am teaching Japanese students (mainly young learners) for a teaching company in London. I pride myself on maximising speaking and getting my students to speak as much as they possibly can.


I have taught in China both before and after university. While in China I have taught both young learners and adult learners in group classes and one-to-one tuition. With young learners the emphasis is on pronunciation and general English, whereas with the adult learners I have mostly taught English suitable for professional working environments.

I very much enjoyed teaching group classes and seeing so many different personalities in the room. I have been praised in both of the centres I have taught at for my ability to recognise every student's individual ability and tailored my teaching accordingly. I have improved students English a lot during these roles and it is very satisfying seeing progress being made.

On a one-to-one basis is when I have improved my students English the most though as it is just me and them. My focus is entirely on them and it is a much more individualistic and tailored approach to meet the clients needs. I have always had happy students who like both me as a person and my teaching. I have taught both young and adult learners on a one-to-one basis and always have made progress with my learners.

While in China I have taken on private jobs helping students with academic essays, both for BA and MA studies. I have helped these students achieve the grade they wanted and improved their writing skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise everyone as a individual and thus have a individual approach. I am happy to teach both group classes and students on a one-to-one basis. Along with my qualifications, I have the right personality that a good tutor needs. I am helpful, friendly and patient and enjoy nothing more than watching my students progress with their English studies.

I am willing to travel but as my rates are very cheap, if travelling into London from St.Albans I would need to be paid the travel expense on top of my rate. I do have a young persons railcard which makes fares a lot cheaper and I am willing to come back at an off peak time which makes it even more cheaper for your convenience. Alternatively, students can always come to St.Albans where I am located and I am happy to host you at my home or meet at a location of your choice.

Personal Description:
My name is Teresa and I am a trainee Educational Psychologist currently studying for a Doctorate in Child, Community and Educational Psychology. I hold a BSc degree in Clinical Psychology and a PGCE teaching qualification specialising in Primary Languages. I also hold MSc Credits in Science. I have experience teaching in mainstream and special educational needs schools with primary school aged children and have worked in Secondary Education settings. I hold a current CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a qualified teacher with experience in Early years up to year 6. I have experience tutoring Key Stage 3 students outside of school and University students. I also have a lot of experience with special educational needs. I currently work/study as an Educational Psychologist so have regular contact with children, adolescents and young adults.

Tutoring Approach:

My first step will be to find out exactly what a tutee wants to get from the tutoring and how they best learn. Then we can collaboratively make a timetable and plan that suits both of us. My tutoring style is difficult to describe as it will vary from individual to individual. I always try to make use of resources which support the learning style and will incorporate the child's interests into my lesson plans. I feel that it is important to be flexible and will ask the tutee if there is anything they want me to do differently.

Personal Description:
I'm amazing!!!
And I help other people be amazing too!!!
My aim is to increase everyone's understanding of everything!!!

I've been tutoring Maths, Science and English since 2007, for ages 5 to 50. However, I mostly help teenagers with their SATs, GCSEs and A Levels.

Maths, Science and English are the three main subjects that people tend to want tutoring in. (Actually it's five subjects if you break the Science down into Biology, Chemistry and Physics.)

Anyway, as I tutor all of these subjects, my students find it very useful that I can potentially cover a different subject each week, or I can do two hours a week and cover a different subject in each hour.

This obviously makes it much easier for the parents too, because they don't have to find a separate tutor for each subject, or leave their child without the valuable one-to-one support in any of the core subjects.

I've also helped my students with pretty much every major school subject; from History and Religious Studies, to French and Spanish, and even Psychology and Health and Social Care. In fact, experience has shown me that I can help anyone to better understand anything - even something that I didn't even know myself a minute earlier!

Teaching Experience:

Educational Employment

Tutoring Approach:

Initially:
I find out the student's strengths and weaknesses.
I find out what they want to achieve from the tutoring.
Together we draw up a plan of action to achieve this.

While tutoring:
I ensure the student understands every word of the subject as it comes up.
I aim for a full, conceptual understanding of each point to the best of their ability.
I keep motivation high with reward stickers! (IT WORKS!!!)

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.

Personal Description:
I have achieved academic excellence in History, English and Religious Studies in particular, and I recently graduated from the University of Sussex with a first class degree in History.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously tutored students in English Literature (GCSE) and Philosophy (AS Level). I have also created lesson plans and taught lessons to Year 8 and Year 9 students, and have planned and delivered educational assemblies for year groups 7-13.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and approachable individual, and I am clear and concise in my ability to explain concepts and ideas to my students. I am committed to helping my students and improving their understanding, and as a result I listen carefully to the requirements of each individual, and I am able to tailor my approach to each student in order to find a method of teaching that works for them.

Personal Description:
I have several years English teaching and GCSE examining experience following my degree and am currently teaching English/English at GCSE, A level and undergraduate level on a private basis. I have an MA in English which I passed with merit, and have recently embarked on a further Master's degree in Literature and Culture in 19th Century Literature and Culture.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught A Level and GCSE English in FE colleges. Following this I started private tutoring in English at all ages and levels along with some basic Primary maths. More recently my work as an English Literature examiner has enhanced my understanding of student needs and of course the requirements of the GCSE exam syllabus. As I have been tutoring for some time now I am familiar with the varying requirements of all the major exam boards in GCSE and A level English Language and English Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

The greatest thing is seeing the student gain in confidence as their ability grows. One to one tuition enables the student to be honest about problems that are difficult to raise in the classroom at school or college. Consequently the tutor can focus on the individual needs of the student. This is the philosophy I adopt in tutoring. I am very conscientious, approachable and happy to adapt to the needs of the individual student , then watch them thrive.

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.

Personal Description:
I am a young and enthusiastic private tutor with more than 6 years' experience, specialising in English Literature. I am familiar with a wide range of literature, including many popular school set texts. I welcome tuition requests from students at all levels and of all ages.

I hold a First Class BA degree in English as well as an MA in Victorian Studies with Distinction, both from the University of Exeter. I am also in my final year of a PhD in Victorian Literature at the University of London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught a range of ages and abilities in English Literature, both in the UK and the US. I have tutored children learning to read, primary school children, secondary school students (KS3, GCSE and A level), university students (at BA and MA level), and adult learners (including those studying an online course and those studying with the Open University).

Three years ago I also began giving tuition on English grammar and punctuation to adult learners wishing to improve their business communication skills.

I have helped students write clear, effective and successful personal statements for university applications for more than 7 years.

I also have experience of helping teach primary school children to read, write, and improve their comprehension skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to each individual students according to their needs, following a consideration of their strengths and weaknesses in the course of the first two sessions. This enables me to teach and enthuse each student. When students are shown different ways of looking at a text, and ways in which it relates to their own lives, literature becomes much more accessible, encouraging them to study and achieve better academic grades.

Extra tutoring gives students individual attention beyond the scope of the classroom, and offers an opportunity to look at set texts in more detail, and at the right pace.

Improving students' confidence is central to my approach to tutoring. With individually tailored tutoring, determination to succeed, and improved confidence, my students are able to achieve excellent grades and reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during lessons, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. Reading can be done in either setting, however it is important that both the tutor and learner participate in the process. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring.

Personal Description:
Hello, I live in Sunderland. I have a B A (Hons) degree and a Certificate in Education specialising in Maths and English and I have also attended relevant courses (for example in Dyslexia Awareness) and have a Counselling certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have had approximately 20 years experience of teaching English, Maths and I C T and this has included helping pupils to prepare for the SATs tests. I have worked with children and adults on a one to one basis and in groups and fully understand the needs of both.

I have had extensive experience teaching in schools and am therefore familiar with the requirements of the national curriculum key stages 1,2 3 and 4.

I also have a vast array of resources and past exam papers and can also create resources that are tailor made for a specific pupil.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working creatively and will tailor learning to the particular interests of the pupil if necessary as I feel that this makes the work more interesting and meaningful for them. I have established excellent relationships with pupils in the past and have a sensitive, caring and thoughtful approach.

In the first session I carry out an assessment in order to get an idea of the needs of the pupil and use this as a trial session. Pupils don't have to continue unless they are happy with everything.

Personal Description:
Retired, deputy headteacher of a primary school in London. Aged 59. I have two children of my own, aged 12 and 14.

Teaching Experience:

Taught in primary and secondary schools for 34 years. Over 20 years experience as a deputy headteacher. Have taught the full age range of primary school but mostly KS2 (age 7-11). My main role over the last 15 years has been a Year 6 SATS teacher so I have lots of experience for SATS preparation. I also did a lot of work in booster groups in Maths and English, moving children from level 3 to level 4. I have now been tutoring for a year with children aged between 7 and 14. For the last 3 years I have been a Key Stage 2 SATs marker.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim is to improve the ability of the children in the subjects chosen. Most of my tutees find the one-to-one personal touch invaluable because it allows me to quickly identify the areas of difficulty and devise a learning programme to meet these at a pace which the tutee finds comfortable. Many of the parents have commented that one-to-one sessions have rapidly improved the tutee's confidence and has frequently resulted in them being moved up groups in the classroom. Other parents have asked me to prioritise my teaching time working with their children on school homework. I like to create a friendly but purposeful atmosphere. I always give time to the parents at the end of each session so they are kept completely informed about my aims and strategies. I have years of experience and all the relevant materials to support the children in these subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide a structured work time table given different needs and time frames for your child. I am patient and understanding and provide clear and well thought out examples and explanations. I am a sociable,kind, good humored person who is well loved by the children I work with.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Olivia. I have a first class degree in English from University College London (the best English department in the country) and a distinction-level masters in Literature from Birkbeck University. I went on to qualify in Law at City University. My degrees have given me experience of working at a high academic level, and I have adopted skills such as research, essay writing, essay formatting, effective revision and creative writing. I can show how simple it is to improve essays or homework by writing good introductions and conclusions, using literary critics and quotations, and analysing prose or poetry. UCL is the only university still providing one-on-one tuition, and after having had a personal tutor for three years as part of my degree, I can apply what they have taught me to my tutoring: looking at past essays to see how they can be improved, practising essay structure and enhancing the grammar and style of writing. Help with computer literacy such as writing in Word documents and blogging can also be provided.

I am also available to teach English as a foreign language, whether for school, exams or for personal improvement. Lessons could be planned and work on grammar and vocabulary or be structured to improve conversation, whatever is most needed. I have received pronunciation (a standard English accent) and can help to improve spoken English.

I can tutor up to degree level, and am happy to work with primary or secondary school pupils.

I can show a CRB check and references on request.

I can provide bumper revision sessions for new students up until exams. Please ask for more details.

Teaching Experience:

I have a range of experience teaching all age groups. I have been tutoring one-to-one for 3 years, teaching History and English language and literature. My students have found me committed and knowledgeable, and have often achieved their target grade or better. I have also helped students with university applications and personal statements. Last year, all of the students I assisted with their applications got the maximum of 5 university offers.

I have travealled to Cambodia to teach English language at a charity school in Phnom Penh, and my pupils there ranged from 4 years old to adults.

I have also worked four summers full-time in an English language school where I had full responsibility of children and teenagers. This year I was the director of the school's residential programme. As well as helping the students to improve their English, I coordinated their entire stay at the school. My employer praised me for often being chosen as 'best activity leader' on the students' feedback forms.

Last year I took part in an outreach programme at my university which involved teaching human rights and activism at a London sixth form college on behalf of Amnesty International. We had a series of lessons on different aspects of human rights abuse and campaigning which led up to a fundraiser raising money for Amnesty.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that a gradual build-up of confidence is integral to learning literacy skills. Learning skills on by one, such as editing or memorising, makes the tasks seem simple, yet leads up to a large and complex understanding of how to do well at English. Working at the student's own speed is important, in order that they grasp one aspect of writing before tackling another. My approach is to find the weak areas in a student's studying and work on these, without making any task seem too daunting. Exam technique and the knack of writing what an examiner is looking for are also main objectives.

I will help extensively with essays and coursework, providing comprehensive editing and advice. We can work together on your piece of work until it is of the highest standard possible.

Personal Description:
I am a young, female primary school teacher in the Doncaster/Wakefield area. Aside from my enthusiasm for teaching and helping children to achieve, I am interested in academic areas including sociology and languages. I enjoy travel and reading. I have worked voluntarily as a teaching assistant and completed a degree in Sociology before training to be a teacher. I now work as a supply teacher at primary level and as a personal tutor to primary and secondary level children. I hold an enhanced DBS check dated September 2015.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher who has taught classes of all ages at primary level. As a supply teacher, I have worked in many different schools and, as such, I develop positive relationships very quickly with both children and adults. I enjoy working with individuals and small groups in academic tasks and find that children are very responsive to this lower teacher-pupil ratio. I have found that working in these situations really helps to boost children's concentration and confidence in their work. They also feel more comfortable to ask questions in areas they find difficult. When tutoring, I am to create a positive, friendly and professional relationship where children feel comfortable with what they are learning, but also feel they can ask for help when required.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that children learn in many different ways - some by seeing and visualising, some by talking and discussing, and some by doing a physical or mental activity. I aim to tutor children using the learning style that best suits them. In a classroom, it is often difficult to meet the needs of every child. Personal tuition provides children with valuable one-to-one time, where the focus is on them and them alone. I believe that personal tuition does much to increase achievement in those weaker areas, but also serves to challenge and develop knowledge in stronger areas. Following a free initial consultation, I provide personalised programmes of study tailored exactly to meet the needs of the child involved. I am passionate about helping children to reach their full potential and will do all I can to make this happen. Sessions take place in the child's own home and are arranged on a flexible basis with parent or guardian. I can provide tuition from 30 minutes per week to more intensive programmes consisting of several hours per week in the school holidays.

I currently have slots available on weekday evenings and am available most Saturday mornings and early afternoon. I am not available on Sundays.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Hana and I am very excited at this opportunity to become a tutor.

I obtained 10 GCSEs, including an A* in French and English. I then moved on to take the Intenational Baccalaureate rather than A-levels which improved my general skills as well as subject knowledge. I achieved a level 5 in both French and English Literature (both at higher level).
I am currently studying French and Art at university.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I did a week of work experience in a primary school, working with children from the age of 4 up until the age of 11. During this placement I assisted with English and reading, art lessons and French lessons. The experience was very rewarding and I even received (handmade) presents from some of the students when I left!

Very recently I worked and lived in a château in France for 8 weeks, vastly improving my level of French during my stay. I also began to teach some French children a bit of English, but most of my time was taken up speaking French with the locals and visitors who came to stay in the château.

I have also helped my younger brother and neighbours with homework and revision several times!

Tutoring Approach:

I hope to tutor in a fun and practical manner, using art or memory techniques where I can! I can change my approach depending on the age of the person being tutored, as well as their individual needs and requirements.
I myself find that colours, pictures and interesting work sheets can aid learning and revision, thus I will try to incorporate these where I can!

Personal Description:
My name is Nicholas and I have been working as a professional teacher for 5 years. 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 am currently working as an English and Maths teacher for the prestigious Prospects Group. 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.

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. The first session with a new student always involves an initial assessment in order for me to assess the learner's level in the subject they are studying. The information derived from this assessment in turn allows me to construct a Scheme of Work which acts as the 'curriculum'; the syllabus that they student will have to adhere to while studying under my tuition.

Personal Description:
I went to Cranleigh School (A Levels: English, Maths, Theatre Studies and a Music AS Level) and went on to read English at Corpus Christi, Cambridge graduating with a First class degree. At university I was heavily involved in Drama and the Footlights. Returning to London in 2008 I founded Rogues' Gallery Theatre company before teaching English and Drama at Sherborne School in Dorset. I've been tutoring or teaching English in schools for just over eight years.

I'm a freelance theatre director and the artistic director of Rogues' Gallery Theatre company. Until recently I was the Associate Director on Shakespeare In Love, which played West End from July 2014 - April 2015. I was also the Associate Director of Chariots of Fire. I've also assisted Richard Eyre and Mike Leigh.

I also enjoy running, love cricket and cycling and am a rather rubbish but very enthusiastic guitar player.

Teaching Experience:

I was a full-time English teacher at Sherborne School in Dorset, teaching a full range of classes from 13-18. During this time I also marked Common Entrance and Scholarship papers for the school. I've been tutoring or teaching English in schools for over eight years. I am also happy to teach Maths up to 13+ having received full marks in Maths A Level.

I have extensive experience in the following areas:

University Dissertations (English, Drama and other humanities where the emphasis is on essay technique and structure.)

Oxbridge Applications specialising in Cambridge English. Six of my students have successfully gained entrance to Cambridge Colleges to read English.

A and AS Level English (OCR, AQA, Edexcel.) Good familiarity with all major set texts.

GCSE: (IGCSE, OCR, AQA and Edexel) Good familiarity with all major set texts.

13+ Entrance Schools have included King's Wimbledon, Harrow, Cranleigh, Sherborne, Cheltenham.

11+Entrance in English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

I have considerable experience with dyslexic and SEN pupils, having myself overcome mild dyslexia and taught many of the lower sets whilst at Sherborne.
I regularly give talks and run workshops in Public Schools on dramatic texts in the GCSE and A Level English Syllabuses as well as run workshops and judge competitions for Public Speaking. Institutions include Marlborough, The Leys Cambridge, St James Ashford, Kingston University.

Other relevant Experience:

I ran a weekly Saturday School for Westminster Refugee Consortium helping students from yrs 9-11 overcome their diverse backgrounds to succeed at school.

I've also worked for National Youth Theatre with highly challenging students ages 14-21 excluded from the school system.

Finally, I'm a trustee of Schools in South Sudan, a charity working to bring stability through education to a volatile region of Central Africa.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is heavily dictated by my student. My first lesson is all about discovering what type of learner they are. We'll also talk about their interests and goals. This seemingly innocuous conversation often holds the key to motivating them towards success.

To my mind learning is always best done actively. I've personally never learned much by being talked at so that's not how I teach. I ask lots of questions and expect a good level of engagement during a session.

I also believe that at the heart of even the trickiest problems is a series of simple solutions. I aim to make those simple solutions clear and to help students to think clearly and effective for themselves.

Above all, learning doesn't happen very well if a student isn't engaged. I'm good at helping my students become interested in what they're studying and, even if it takes a little while, it's more than worth it.
