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:
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.' ~ Albert Einstein

This quotation holds many truths: I am a strong believer in the necessity of positive educational experiences. As an enthusiastic , engaging and encouraging teacher I promise to provide this through my tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Teacher of English graded by Ofsted as 'Good' with 'Outstanding' features. My role within my current academy is Key Stage 5 Manager of English. I have tutored for many years. Furthermore, I offer many support sessions to the students at my academy. I have participated in numerous CPD (Continuing Professional Development) sessions which have focused on the new GCSE framework. My forte lies with teaching KS4 and KS5 students. I am confident in teaching both the traditional GCSE and the new IGCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

The primary aim of my tutoring is to raise students' attainment. I set high expectations of students' attitudes and achievement. This is aided through an ethos of achieving 'personal best' and a 'can do' attitude to work and learning.

The most important thing to note is that my approach to tutoring varies depending on the tutee's needs. A variety of learning techniques will be implemented with a focus on promoting literacy whilst addressing the key skills of reading, writing , speaking & listening.

My tutoring approach is always relaxed, yet focused. Homework will be set.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level as well as Politics at A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Personal Description:
I specialize in helping students who have found it hard to fit in with normal class room life. My background in psychotherapy and counselling helps me build rapport and bring out the best in students who have had emotional problems at school.
I am concerned with education of the whole person, rather than cramming in knowledge just to get through that exam.

I teach poetry at the Ashmolean Museum, a branch of Oxford University, and bring a depth of understanding to my work with people from nine to ninety. I have four grown up children.

Teaching Experience:

BA Hons. PGCE 1974. I have taught in primary and secondary schools, as well as sixth form colleges and universities, including Oxford and the London School of Economics.. I have also taught in private schools and been a director of a school of counselling and psychotherapy. I have taught psychology at Abingdon and Witney College, and poetry in many Oxfordshire Schools. I teach poetry short courses for Oxford University at the Ashmolean museum. I teach both GCSE and IGCSE courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always do my best to help a student improve their exam performance, using my wide knowledge of psychology and counselling/coaching skills, as well as my subject knowledge. I most enjoy working with students who want to gain a deeper understanding of their subjects that will be of use to them in their real lives, rather than just to get through an exam. I am very good at building a rapport with students, and finding a way to bring the best out of their skill set.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying a Masters in Creative Writing. I completed my undergraduate studying BA Creative Writing and English Literature with 2:1. I'm aware that English and History are complex and intriguing subjects but I firmly believe that a thorough understanding and practise of techniques will enable to provide you with a firm base for any student to succeed.
I am keen, conscientious, hardworking and reliable person. I am good timekeeper and enjoy meeting people. I am able to get on with a variety of people. I would like the valuable opportunity to be able to work within an education orientated environment where I can demonstrate and develop my skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have completed a Literacy Leadership Award and I was assessed on my ability to plan and prepare a literacy activity. I had to show communication and motivational skills through delivering literacy across the curriculum. Having observed teachers, I was able to learn interesting techniques that are used to teach Key stage 3 and 4 students. From this experience, I was taught how to plan and structure a lesson i.e. the starter, an introduction, an interactive main activity and the plenary; how to use verbal and non-verbal communication successfully .These rewarding experiences encouraged me to become an English teacher in the future. I have also worked closely with my peers on A Level courses such as English and History by delivering revision sessions and presenting my ideas on literary texts, articles and academic research.
I have been tutoring privately for over two years and currently have eighteen students.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tuition includes a variety of techniques and strategies in order to guide and motivate the learner. I will set personalised targets with my students and their parents in order to achieve the desired results. I also intend to provide you with a personalized programme that is best suited to your individual needs. I'm very enthusiastic and try to make learning a fun experience, using different ways of learning. Also, price can be negotiated.
"She's a good listener. She tries to make people understand something in a way that makes you feel comfortable. She involved everyone in the discussion even the quiet ones and always tries to find new ways of explaining things. Revision sessions were really useful and I think the main reason was because she just loves helping other people whether it is people younger or the same age. Everyone went home feeling slightly more confident about the exam including me. She makes sure that everybody understands even if it has to be explained more than once." (Aarti, 18, student)
"Charnjit has a way of making the impossible- possible. She is patient with her students and will try her hardest to make people understand. She has a way of teaching which involves a lot of group work and a one-one session where she will answer any questions from the stupidest to the smartest. After having few sessions with her I went into my exam confidently. Most importantly, she never gives up on anyone." (Rahwa, student)
"Charnjit's teaching style is unique and possesses many qualities. She is patient and constantly checks for understanding in order to go over things if the topic is not understood straight away. She uses a variety of techniques such as group brain storming in order to get the class involved which is very effective. During our group revision sessions she used this technique which worked well as it got everybody thinking, talking and interacting which was useful when remembering theorists and certain dates. She also categorised the theorists into groups based on their research which was also helpful for revision as it broke down the amount of theorists into smaller groups which were easier to remember. In addition, Charnjit is very good at keeping the class' attention which is very important as a teacher." (Stefanie Mee, student)

Personal Description:
I like to be busy! I feel it is important to maintain a work-life balance, which, although admittedly was a steep learning curve in my NQT year, I have managed to achieve and perfect in my subsequent four years in teaching. I have five pets - three rats and two tortoises, which sometimes feels like a job in itself, although I adore them and wouldn't give them up in a second. I enjoy keeping fit and healthy and particularly enjoy running, cycling and fitness classes. Occasionally, I take part in events such as marathons, half marathons and cycle rides and raised 1000 for charity a few years ago by running three half-marathons in three subsequent months. I am also part of a local amateur theatre group and usually take part in one or two shows a year. These have included Little Shop of Horrors, Gigi, Sleeping Beauty and A Christmas Carol, amongst others. This has given me an enthusiasm for drama which I have explored through yearly key stage Christmas productions and assemblies at my last school, where I taught for 5 years. Finally, on my weekends off, I enjoy watching movies and reading on an occasional "duvet day."

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a primary school teacher in early 2006 and began supply teaching in Reading, where I had studied for my Education Degree. In May 2006, I began working in a one-form entry primary school in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, where I taught for 5 years and additionally led 5 curriculum areas in the school. During my time in this school, I planned and taught all National Curriculum subjects to children with a range of abilities and needs, including children who were "gifted and talented", children with autism and Downs syndrome, and children working below national expectations. A classroom with children working at a range of levels and with different interests and learning styles makes for challenging teaching, but allowed me to develop and hone a creative and flexible approach to teaching. I was observed regularly as part of continuing professional development, and in observations by my last two Headteachers, was graded as "excellent".
I am currently working as a Lower School Leader, teaching Reception and leading the Early Years and Key Stage One. It is a busy job with lots of challenge but lots of fun.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been tutoring for two years and have a few children I see regularly. I am keen to take on more, particularly in the school holidays. My teaching apporach is very flexible. I understand that everyone learns in different ways and at different rates, so this is reflected in my teaching. I cater to a range of learning styles, and ensure that my lessons are fun, yet suitably challenging. I feel it is important to keep learning fun for children of all ages, to motivate them to want to learn and to empower them to take ownership of their own learning. I feel teaching should be more than just a series of worksheets, and for children to really understand and take on new concepts, they need a range of approaches to enable them to explore their subject matter. For example, lessons may include work on a laptop, written work, games, experiments/investigations, role-play & drama and more.

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.

I am also able to provide support if you are new to the UK and just want to improve your ability to speak, read, and write English online.

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.

My specialist areas are English Language and Literature; Study, Exam and Revision Skills. Short, intensive 1-to1 courses are available for exam revision and exam technique. Reduced rates are available for longer contracts, or for students living in the locality.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is always adapted to YOUR specific needs and is informed by critical and creative strategies that have a proven track record.

I work in partnership with YOU in order to identify YOUR most urgent needs and and the goals to be achieved. Together we address issues of motivation and the acquisition of key subject study skills. The process builds on creative strategies for self-improvement which leads to enhanced enjoyment and success.

Personal Description:
I offer a one-to-one tuition service to AS/A-Level/degree-level students in English Literature. I am a patient, friendly person who can inspire and motivate students to achieve their goals. I can offer:

A planned programme of in-depth reading & textual analysis sessions to help understand texts thoroughly
Exam coaching and testing
Advice and written feedback on drafts of coursework/essays/dissertations

I am not a traditional secondary-school teacher. I wrote a PhD in English Literature at King's College London (1998-2003) and I have taught graduate-level students at KCL and Royal Holloway. I can offer an independent and adult approach to learning English. I like the challenge of making the subject interesting and engaging for those students who are struggling to see the relevance of reading books from 200 or 300, or even 400 years ago.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience as a graduate tutor (KCL and Royal Holloway, London) and one year's experience working as a private tutor. I also work as a freelance writer, editor and a personal assistant.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to treat each student as an individual. In an initial consultation, I like to get to know my student, to discover their interests, their personality and their job/career aspirations. I try to discover as much as possible about my student's previous learning and teaching experiences. I encourage them to self-reflect on what it is they find most difficult in studying English. I take a very structured approach to lessons, taking into consideration levels of ability. I set small achievable specific tasks and questions (for example about topics/themes/questions that will arise in an exam paper). I think it is important to give my students the basic knowledge and skills they need, but then also to stretch their intellectual capacity by exposing them to more challenging ideas and material. Above all, I am tutor who is also a learner. There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers in studying English. But the ability to write a cogent and supported argument in an exam essay is achievable with effort and practice.

Personal Description:
I am a highly dependable, confident and enthusiastic individual with excellent communication skills. I attended a prestigious private school were I obtained an excellent academic record and was appointed a Prefect in my penultimate year, as well as Deputy Head Girl in my final year. I am currently reading English Literature at the University of Northumbria in Newcastle and English has always been a passion of mine, forming an important part of my early life. As a child, my parents had their own business and I was often at a loss for something to do as they were always busy - so I started reading...and the rest is history! In short, I fell in love with books and I am keen to ignite that passion for English in other people. Learning English should not be 'boring' or all about 'hard words' and Shakespeare, it's about using your imagination and indulging in the wonderful characters and worlds that have been created for us to enjoy. Of course, getting good grades at exam level is important, too. However, I believe that really enjoying and appreciating a subject helps your attitude towards the exam. My aim is to help you to enjoy the subject that you study!

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is mainly peer-to-peer in my university seminars. During my time at school I gave up free periods in Sixth Form to assist GCSE Drama students with technique during their lessons in preparation for their exams. This was challenging but very rewarding! I truly believe in helping people to understand things so that they can start to enjoy them and improve their skills. Our A-level English Literature class was very small, with only four students, we would often split off into two pairs and explain our various ideas and interpretations of texts we were studying to each other, this helped me to realise that learning should not be one sided, it is a process of interaction and exchange that is most effective and enjoyable.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, approachable and patient. I will do my very best to assist you in your enjoyment of the subject!

I am an English teacher with over 20 years experience teaching to GCSE, A-level and Oxbridge entrance.I have taught in both the independent and state sectors, in a large comprehensive and a small independent school. I have also tutored in Oxford and London for students from 10 to 19.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one or small groups of 2 or 3.

I aim to develop confidence by supporting the students and understanding their needs as a priority. I then encourage them to explore and develop ideas, giving them support while they grow in this. The key is building an excellent relationship in which high expectations enable them to make progress while always supported.

Personal Description:
After graduating from the University of St Andrews with a 2.1 in English Literature, I gained a qualification in teaching English as a foreign language. As part of this course I taught groups of learners as well as one on one classes, which I particularly enjoyed. I am very patient and enjoy teaching academic English and English as a foreign language to people of all ages.

Teaching Experience:

My Trinity Cert TESOL course included the following:
6 hours of assessed teaching practice with learners of English as a foreign language
Experience planning and delivering private 1 to 1 lessons

Tutoring Approach:

Being Trinity TESOL qualified, I can help you identify which areas of the English language you struggle with most and prepare a course of study based on your aims and needs. I try to plan fun lessons that build your confidence in all aspects of communication.

I can also provide help with academic writing for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students whose first language is not English.

Having a degree in English Literature, I can tutor Standard Grade and Higher Grade (or GCSE and A-level) students in English. While I believe it is important to encourage students to focus on the requirements of the exam board, so that they can achieve grades that reflect their full potential, I also want to encourage students to read literature with a critical independence that they can enjoy for life.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, cheerful and hard working teacher. Students always enjoy studying with me. They find me knowledgeable, patient and committed to their success. I am especially good at building up confidence and helping students discover they can understand English and succeed in it.



My interests include: triathlons, cycling, walking, breakfasting, swimming and blogging.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years of English teaching experience. I currently teach English Language and Literature at GCSE, A level and undergraduate level. I also teach English as a Foreign Language, face-to-face and online.

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 December 2013.

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:
My name is Nicole and I am an 18 year old student at the University of Surrey. I am studying English Literature and Creative Writing, and have aspirations to be a teacher in the future. I'm very dedicated to my work, and am an avid reader. My particular focus is English, however I have an extensive background in Business and a long-term interest in Maths and Physics.

Teaching Experience:

I hold very little official teaching experience, however I have often worked with younger students and children. I was a prefect in my school, and often tutored and taught those in lower years on both a formal and an informal basis. I have a past in working with a variety of children of all ages due to my family background. I do have a Junior Sports Leader qualification, the acquisition of which involved me planning lessons and teaching PE classes to 9-11 year old students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am dedicated to helping students be the best they can be, and reach their full potential. As I am still in education, and have only recently left the school environment, I can work closely with students as someone who understands their own opinions and worries but also the importance of their success. I aim to be not just an educator but a confidant and someone they can rely on to help them manage the stresses of school life.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate from the university of Nottingham. I have always been passionate at learning and have consistently performed well academically. I'd like to be able to share this passion and enthusiasm for learning with young people and assist in the education of people who struggle with their studies, as I believe that everyone should have equal opportunities to make the most from their life. I have a high level of responsibility to others and thrive from the contributing to other people's happiness and being of service to them and so try to do a lot of rewarding voluntary work in my spare time. I also have continued studying as a hobby as I believe learning is a continuous and never ending process.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked occasionally in primary schools, assisting with activities or school trips. I also volunteered my time as a mentor for a young girl in a role with the nonprofit organisation Into University. This role involved organising and leading engaging activities in one to one sessions to boost my mentee's academic and social skills, which she felt greatly improved with my help. I currently work as a support worker for disabled University students, providing one to one academic and emotional support.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be open and entirely subject to the tutee's individual needs since these are most important. Though I can most effectively tutor using the methods that have worked well for me, an example being, the creation of visual aids.
