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 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 mature professional, originally from Yorkshire. I hold a current enhanced CRB check and have spent most of my life working with children and young people. Most of my work has involved teaching pupils with special educational needs. At present I work part-time as a teacher in a hospital school with students 5-19yrs. I am highly qualified in teaching. In addition to a Bachelor of Education degree with honours, I hold an MA in the Psychology of Education, and diplomas in the teaching of reading (literacy and literature) and in Counselling. I also have a certificate in TEFL My work with children has not been restricted to teaching - I have worked as a Youth and Community worker, as a Counsellor and as a Child Protection Officer. My hobbies include drama, dance and choral singing.

Teaching Experience:

I trained as a teacher of infants but I have worked as a teacher of all ages and abilities. The majority of my teaching has involved pupils who experience a variety of special educational needs - social, emotional and behaviour difficulties, moderate learning difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, dyslexia, medical and mental health difficulties. I have also taught in secure accommodation. My teaching is effective - my work as a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator in a large primary school in South London received a very good Ofsted report because the pupils with special educational needs made good progress - better progress than pupils in the school who did not have special needs! I am also on the Upper Pay Scale for teachers who have proved to government that their teaching interventions make a difference to pupil attainment.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a great deal of experience as a teacher of individuals and small groups in school and many years experience of private tutoring. My success comes from teaching each person, adult or child as a unique individual. I am popular with my students because I endeavour to make learning fun whilst retaining high expectations of effort and success, being patient, firm but fair. My fee reflects my knowledge, skill and experience. I integrate my tutoring with the tutees school syllabus and approach, increasing motivation with encouragement, challenge and the introduction of new knowledge in carefully paced steps. I begin with a thorough assessment of a student's strengths and weaknesses at my base where I have assessment materials for all ages. My fee is payable for this session when clients can examine my CRB check, qualifications and we can discuss mutual availability (times) and location.

Personal Description:
I graduated from Oxford University in 2011 with a degree in Experimental Psychology, specialising in 'Educational Psychology'. I currently tutor as well as run a study skills company where I visit schools in London, teaching students how to maximise their potential through various unique learning techniques. I love teaching, and the satisfaction of helping my students reach their goals; I welcome students of all abilities and motivation types. What sets me apart from most is that as well as tutoring my students, I take the role of a mentor, to motivate, encourage and guide them towards success. I have had a lot of experience in private tuition, with a range of students benefiting from my support with 11+ exams up to Degree level. I am very lively and approachable, providing a warm environment in which to learn!

I am able to tutor:

Degree level Psychology (including help and guidance with essays/assignments/dissertations; proof-reading etc)

A-Level - Mathematics, Geography, English (Literature/Language), Psychology and Media Studies.

GCSE - most subjects including Mathematics, English, Science, History, ICT, French and Geography.

For students applying for Oxbridge, I am able to provide valuable advice on interview techniques and personal statements, as well as provide contacts to graduates from Oxford University from a range of subjects. I am also able to tutor students for entrance exams e.g. 11+.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored extensively at Primary, GCSE, A-level, and Degree level with excellent results. Examples include a student who moved up from a D in A-Level Psychology to a very high B. Another gained almost an A* in her English GCSE after being tutored by me for just a month, a huge improvement from the C/D level she was at. I am currently tutoring students ranging from 11+ common entrance exams to A-level Mathematics and Psychology degree level. I have taken part in several mentor schemes where I supported students with their academic problems in Mathematics, Science and English.I have also hosted group tuition sessions, and regularly run study skills workshops in schools around London.

Studying 'Education and Psychology' as my specialist subject during my degree has meant that I have a range of techniques that I apply to my teaching - these are based on biological/neuroscience/psychological findings in an educational context.

Tutoring Approach:

I spend a lot of time planning for sessions so that my students get the very best out of each lesson. My approach is thus very organised, with small goals set per session, as well as a long term goal to work towards. I always ensure that my lessons are engaging, and work towards building a good relationship with my students, encouraging them to ask questions without any hesitation. I adapt my approach depending on my students' learning style as this is the key to successful teaching. Past papers are also definitely a step in the right direction, as well as looking at the syllabus/specifications for the subject.

Personal Description:
Confidence is often the stumbling block for learners, and I always encourage all of my students to feel an early sense of achievement. Enabling students to see real progress quickly is essential to the building of self-esteem. I am very approachable and my style of teaching is relaxed and friendly. I love my job and hope that my own enthusiasm inspires my students to excel. Recently I have added French to my repertoire, for absolute beginners. I am sure French will be as popular and exciting as English has been.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an English teacher since 1976. I have taught all age groups, from nursery to A Level. Teaching is a wonderful and totally satisfying vocation. I moved across to tutoring as I felt I could offer all of my experience in this role. Being a teacher is definitely something I was born to do, and I love it.

Tutoring Approach:

Students can learn by either visiting my home or at a distance using Skype. Every student is assessed as an individual and the content of their course tailored to their needs. I test my students periodically to ensure progress is going smoothly; also testing is a good way for students to observe their own progress. We use a variety of materials: books for writing and reading, the computer for visual skills and games, listening and speaking is a major part of the programme for EFL students. Children learn in different ways, and I like to offer my students visual, auditory and kinetic tools, we can see which is most comfortable for the individual. The speed of learning is not as important as the confidence of the individual and their inspiration and motivation to progress.

Personal Description:
**11+ Entrance Exams: Having successfully tutored my son 11+ exams for Tiffin School, I decided to tutor other students in preparation for Grammar School entrance exams. I coach specific techniques, short cuts and tips that enable students to gain competitive advantages; to be "ahead of the games".


**11+ Verbal Reasoning (VB) is problem solving using vocabulary, language and mathematical skills. I coach students how to completing sequence, working out numerical codes, logical reasoning, mathematical reasoning, alphabet reasoning, word codes, patterns, anagram, coded sequences etc. My tuition helps to develop students' word power, vocabulary range and reasoning skills.

**11+ Non Verbal Reasoning (NVB) is solving problems using patterns and shapes. I emphasize tackling questions on analogies, codes, similarities, series, components, patters, layering, movements, manipulations, odd one out, matrices, elements, logic etc.; There are about 21 types of question set by GL Assessment, e.g. identifying, rotating, missing coded shapes etc. Strategies of ensuring students to master techniques thoroughly to a high level, understanding the instructions and information, training students to "think on feet" and coping with the unexpected will be implemented in my tuition.

**11+ English: I prepare students for their Comprehension and Creative Writing skills, including story plot ideas, structure, dialogues, endings, character development, grammatical knowledge, vocabulary, sentence structure, spelling, grammar and punctuation. I am able to assist students in building confidence, reaching full potentials and stretching abilities whilst maintaining high academic performances.

**11+ Maths: Apart from training on mental arithmetic and core maths skills, I ensure students not to get bored with numbers and formulas by introducing an element of fun into lessons, e.g. playing maths games, puzzles at the end of the session. I familiar students with a wide range of key questions types, layout, format and topics, identifying individual needs, and targeting weak areas, boost scores and confidence, highlighting strengths and weakness in the core skills.



**QTS Numeracy Skills Test:

Understandably many candidates find their mental arithmetic skills have gone bit "rusty" over the years and revisit some areas in general mathematics and statistics is certainly a must when attempting a pass for the first time.

My "Speed Methods" of calculation enable candidates to solve Mental Maths questions against limited time; "accuracy and speed" coming hand in hand. In addition, I teach Interpretation of Graphs and Data, helping candidates to identify trends and patterns; interpret statistical information; make comparison and draw conclusions when answering multi-stage questions.

I group similar questions together; teach students how to make notes; look out for key phrases; draw on the graphs; identify students' common mistakes…..

A basic "spoon feeding" style makes my tutees understand the techniques easily and quickly. They soon become competent in the mental arithmetic's area with speed; grasp the knowledge of the conversion between fractions, decimals and percentages. Many tutees found my tuition useful and passed their QTS Numeracy Skills Tests after my effective coaching.



**Mandarin Chinese: I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker, fluent in English and experienced in tutoring for children and adults at all levels; whether it is for business, exams, travel or leisure. Familiar with the required syllabus and criteria, I'm efficient to prepare GCSE, IGCSE, IB, A Level & University Degree Chinese exams etc. HSK or YCT.

For the Pre-Modern Chinese Literature exam, translation, interpretation, comparison and comment on Chinese Classical Poems are taught; focusing on essay writing skills for Chinese History and Thought Exams.

I helped university student's Mandarin Grade from "Fail" to "2:1", tackling four areas of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing skills improvement.


** Maths subjects (KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE, A Level): Familiar with the National Curriculum, I stretch students' abilities and potentials. GCSE and A level Maths students have improved their grades and confidence following my tuition. I have proven records of raising Grade E to C, Grade D to B and Grade C to A Star. I cover Edexcel, AQA, OCR, IGCSE and IB Maths.



** A Level Sociology and Psychology: Lots of practices of exam style questions and exam techniques are the keys to gain that top mark. I aim to improve student's exam performances by going through examples and activities to develop their abilities of self-assessment or peer-assessment; thus focus on teaching essay writing skills in the format, styles used by major exam boards' Mark Schemes following the syllabus and specifications. Students will be asked to practise past papers questions under timed condition. After weak areas are highlighted, a checklist of comments and marking will be provided.
I teach how to have most focused way to approach exam questions in order to gain maximum marks in a variety of ways:

-write essays as close as to the "Model Answers";

- "read questions"(to understand what is exactly being asked), to select relevant materials, to plan and construct essays with a sharp opening, main content and closing paragraphs, using link sentences, attention to grammar and punctuation;

- use "key phrases/words" throughout an answer; link data item to the questions which give more focused responses rather than a "knowledge list";

-develop students' abilities of evaluation, analysis, interpretation and application; integrate knowledge and understanding with context and testing claims giving a "critical edged flavour" to the essays ;

-identify alternative claims and refer them in the answer. My teaching methods and styles for A level Sociology & Psychology enable students to be active learners, not just sit and absorb knowledge passively. Students gained Grade A in the re-sits after my tuition defeating previous Grade D taught by their own school teachers.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching methods have enabled many pupils to successfully get into a variety of Grammar Schools (including Tiffin Girls, Langley. Slough Grammar etc). I am able to assist students in building their confidence, reaching their full potentials and stretching their abilities whilst maintaining high academic performances.

In addition, my teaching style is geared towards building problem solving skills, improving accuracy and speed, providing remedial work for those struggling as well as making study interesting and engaging.

Lessons are flexibly planned to tailor teaching in a way that meets the individual's needs, suits each one`s cognitive ability and learning pace. Realistic targets are set and weekly manageable amounts of homework are given with regular assessment to monitor progress.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm methodical, reliable and friendly. I'm able to help students with their understanding and make complex concepts simple.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated, approachable and versatile teacher who will help you to develop the skills that you need to increase your confidence, enjoy your studies and achieve success in your exams.

I was educated at grammar and independent schools, and I have a degree in English and Social Anthropology from Cambridge University (1989). I am the third generation of teachers in my family.

Other tutors working with me are well-qualified academically and have extensive experience in their fields.

Teaching Experience:

With twenty years' teaching experience at English teacher at King's School Rochester, Kimbolton School and Excel in Key Subjects, I am perfectly placed to help pupils with a wide range of abilities and ages.

I teach for 11+ (beginning at year 4), Common Entrance, GCSE, A-Level, and I.B. I prepare candidates for university applications, including Oxbridge. I teach adult literacy and I support pupils with dyslexia. I have three years' experience as a GCSE English Language examiner.

I have an excellent exam record: my pupils routinely see significant improvement in their grades. Pupils have gone on to study English at universities such as Cambridge, St Andrews, Durham and Warwick.

Currently I am teaching young people from Key Stage 2 through to A-Level. Each pupil has lessons tailored to his or her needs.

I have directed many school drama productions. My productions include A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Henry V, The Merchant of Venice, Hard Candy, The Importance of Being Earnest, Waiting for Godot, The Cherry Orchard, Toad of Toad Hall and Alice In Wonderland.

Tutoring Approach:

Pupils are taught one-to-one or in well-matched pairs or groups of three. Pupils learning with others pay a reduced rate.

I accept both long-term pupils who need support as they progress through school, and short-term pupils who are studying specifically for an exam or a re-take.

I assess each pupil on his or her merits, using a flexible approach that addresses a pupil's individual needs. I believe that every pupil should end a lesson with a sense of achievement: I work through giving encouragement and praise, and through making the lesson an enjoyable and stimulating experience.

On the other hand, every pupil also needs a clear sense of where he or she can improve: I set reasonable amounts of homework for pupils up to GCSE that address specific areas of need, and I plan lessons accordingly.

My long experience of teaching English Language and Literature has shown me the most effective ways for pupils to acquire the necessary skills for exams. I have a thorough knowledge of examination texts and a substantial collection of relevant notes and textbooks. I refresh this collection regularly and keep up to date with changes in education.

I provide my pupils with reading suggestions: my reading lists are varied and up-to-date. Here is a selection of the books currently being read by my pupils aged 9 to 16:

My Left Foot, Skellig, The Diary of Anne Frank, Nineteen Eighty-Four, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, Soldier Dog, The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, An Act of Love, The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, Shadow of the Minotaur, The Machine Gunners, Refugee Boy.

Personal Description:
I am a clinical medical student at Barts and the London, having completed my pre-clinical training at Cambridge University. I have an excellent academic understanding of Biology, Chemistry and Maths up to A-level standard (and beyond where related to medicine), and additionally in English Literature, which I studied to AS-Level and achieved 100% in my examinations and coursework.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience in one-to-one and small group tuition of ages 6-13 in languages, religious studies and D&T. Having been a student within the one-to-one supervision (tutorials) system at Cambridge, I have recent and very relevant experience from the point of view of a tutee of what works and what doesn't work in a tutorial.

Tutoring Approach:

To start with, I work with the student to identify their current level of progress and look at which areas need improvement. I am very flexible and always ensure that every moment of the lesson is spent covering ground that is useful to the student, whether that is helping them to understand core principles, looking at past exam papers and exam technique or going beyond the basic course outlines to help them shine in their subject.

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen
Listen and Learn
Aberdeen Language School
Free-lance

Tutoring Approach:

At the moment, I offer a 10% discount on all students who book a block of 10 classes in advance (10 hours).

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Personal Description:
Thanks for taking a look at my profile.

In the recent past I have worked as a University Professor in English and have published books and articles on English and Media. Some of these are standard set study texts. I have also served as an Examiner and as a University Admissions Tutor. I am qualified to teach under the PTLLS scheme.

I hold a First Class Honours degree in English Language and Literature (University of St Andrews) and a Doctorate / PhD in English Literature (University of Leeds).


Dr Ian is based in Birmingham / West Midlands and has been described as friendly, patient, sympathetic and approachable. Tuition is offered to improve exams and coursework for school, college, or University. Recent work has included Entrance Exams (11+), GCSE, A-level, and IELTS.

Teaching Experience:

I have undertaken teaching and training in Schools (Primary and Secondary) and in the University Higher Education Sector (to Post Graduate level) over a period of twenty-five years.

During that period I have worked with very gifted students as well as children and adults who have needed special support in order to reach their full potential. Recently I have work with students from India, Poland, Jordan, Iran, China, Pakistan, Japan, and the UK. Recent tutorial work has included entrance exams for 11+ and University (IELTS); support for students completing their MA, MSc, or PhDS; with an excellent track record of success.

Personal Description:
I'm an extremely strong mathematician, scoring top grades through school (including scoring 300/300 in my AS Level Further Maths), and went on to a heavily maths-based degree in Civil Engineering with Management. I'm a GCSE Maths Examiner, so I know exactly what is required to get your target grade.

Aside from teaching Maths, I've had a wide range of experiences - I've helped set up an community project in my friend's village in Tanzania and have taught some of our sponsored students out there. I also work as an actor, and am filling the gaps with supply teaching and private tutoring.

I've recently moved to Watford in summer 2014, so I have lots of gaps to fill with tutoring sessions.

Teaching Experience:

* Teaching and working with young people as a volunteer or professionally since 2004.

* Qualified as a Maths teacher in 2006, and taught in numerous secondary schools, ranging from very challenging schools through to a high performing grammar school.

* Have taught the full ability range from low ability Year 7 through to A Level Further Maths.

* GCSE Maths Examiner since March 2012.

* Tutoring 9-18 year olds since April 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm keen to help pupils understand how maths works, and not simply learn a standard set of instructions to follow to reach the "right" answer.

With the new changes coming to Maths GCSE, having a good understanding is more important than ever - students simply cannot get by on rote-learning the method alone any more. Students need to be able to explain their answer clearly, and I make sure I incorporate this into my lessons.

Of course, approach will vary substantially depending on the student.

Students who are very close to their exams will need more focus on how to get the best result.

With younger students there will be more opportunity to focus on their understanding, and exploring how Maths works. I try to avoid simply teaching "How To Get The Right Answer To This Particular Type Of Exam Question", which might get them through tests in the short term, but is rather less helpful to them in the long term.

As a tutor I'd be choosing the most appropriate approach for the student.

Although I specialise in Maths, I am more than comfortable with science, and can also help students up to secondary school level in this subject. I will also do English with Maths at primary level.

GROUP DISCOUNTS:
* £5 discount per student if working in a pair.
* £10 discount per student in groups of 3 or more.

NOTE: Mostly I'd prefer to tutor from home. I'm on public transport so if you're near good transport links I can also travel to you.

Personal Description:
I have completed PhD in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Manchester. I offer assistance to degree students in assignments and dissertations. I also offer home tuitions for GCSE and A level students. Currently I am teaching at the University of Manchester to engineering students.

Teaching Experience:

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 a recent Cambridge graduate of the department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic. I therefore have a broad range of skills, ranging from literary and historical analysis to linguistic history and translations, with particular emphasis on the learning of languages. I tutor Latin, which I studied to degree level, and Italian, which is my second language. I also tutor English, up to GCSE level.

Teaching Experience:

Working with and assisting children at KS2 level at local primary school, Perry Hall, Wednesfield. Taught Year 5 children basic IT skills. Supervised and assisted children with reading at KS2 level. Assisted with teaching of History lessons and Music lessons. Helped organise outdoor activities.

Running theatre/comedy workshops at public schools across the country such as Haberdashers' Aske's Boys School, Downe House, Uppingham School, King's College School Wimbledon and Framlingham College, as member of Cambridge Footlights.

Tutoring Approach:

As a former member of the Cambridge Footlights I'm a great believer in the entertainment there is to be found in education. Learning anything new is rewarding, fulfilling and life-affirming, and therefore, with the right teacher, captivating and inherently entertaining. I try to bring that ethos to everything I teach.

Personal Description:
I graduated with a 2:1 in Middle Eastern Studies and Arabic from Cambridge University in 2010. The course included modules in history, politics, literature, and religious studies, as well as Arabic language. I spent the third year of my studies living in Damascus, Syria, and speak the Syrian dialect, as well as having a solid grounding in Modern Standard grammar.

My A-levels were in English Literature, Philosophy & Ethics, French, and History (AAAB), and I also took an AS-level in Spanish (A). I have lived in France and Spain and speak both French and Spanish to a high level of fluency. I was also raised bilingual with English and Italian.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to tutoring family friends in Italy over the summer holidays (in English), I've exchanged English and Spanish lessons for Arabic lessons. I also taught English to two groups of 20+ Arab teenagers at a high school in Israel from September - December 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in cultivating a vigorous work ethic in students, which is best done through close supervision and encouragement. The work covered will involve both the curriculum required by the student's course as well as helpful extras tailored to the student's abilities and personality. I will provide these extras to increase the student's understanding of the subject and help him/or her reach a standard of excellence that will be noticed by teachers and examiners alike.

I find the most common problem students have is not with the subject itself, but with the teacher or the insufficient attention they get in the classroom. A stress-free but diligent approach will allow us to build trust, which will give the student renewed confidence in his or her abilities. Students who push themselves with me will be rewarded for their hard work by realising that the subject they once dreaded is actually really enjoyable when approached from a new angle.

I have also been seen by an Ofsted inspector teaching a whole class maths session, despite not being a teacher, and was graded as outstanding and it was recommended I pursue my teaching. I plan on becoming a University lecturer, pursuing my PhD upon completion of my masters. I value education and academia and I feel this is a really important factor I enthusiastically pass on to my pupils. I have planned and led one to one interventions and group work and have always seen a vast improvement in attainment levels. Mostly, I am patient and understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

Hands on learning, a fun approach with all the necessary fine tuning and eye for detail that we need. While I am tutoring we are a team that can tackle problems together!
