Personal Description:
Originally from Newcastle, I am now an actor and enjoy tutoring alongside my acting work. I have worked in TV, and also in theatre, including venues such as The National Theatre and the West End. I studied English and Drama at Bristol University and then went on to train at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Recently, I have been tutoring in English, Drama, 11+ Common Entrance exams and general Primary school help.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since graduation 5 years ago. Alongside my tutoring, I am currently teaching Music and Drama in schools and I run workshops with Sixth Formers on ways of analysing texts practically.

Experience:
A Level English Lit (AQA) - worked with Oliver (17) helping with coursework on The Great Gatsby and the poetry of Keats and Larkin. Oliver achieved an A grade.

AS Level Drama (AQA) - helped Yasmin to explore the analysis of texts of Lady Windermere's Fan and A View From The Bridge in preparation for exams, in which she achieved an A.

GCSE English Literature - tutored Amy in preparation for coursework and exams. Texts: Lord of The Flies and A View From The Bridge.

11+ - worked with Olivia in preparation for her Common Entrance exams on all papers (English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning) as well as interview practice. Olivia is now attending North London Collegiate School (her first choice) but I also prepared her for entrance to Highgate School for Girls, City of London School for Girls and Queen's College.

11+ - I am currently working with Rohan on improving his confidence and basic skills in English and Maths, slowly preparing him for 11+ examinations in January 2016.

Primary Help - Worked with brothers Teddy (7) and Alfie (10) mainly on English and Maths but across all subjects generally to improve knowledge, confidence, spelling and vocabulary.

English for Foreign Learners - Helped 8 year old Augustinos (Greek) with reading and homework to improve English, as well as taking him on educational trips around London.

Drama (practical) - Coached Emily (21) and Hannah (20) with acting lessons in preparation for Drama School Entry auditions. Emily has now trained at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and Hannah is training at LAMDA.

Voice and Elocution - Helped Law Student Amar (20) with speechmaking and projection for use in debating.

SEN - worked with Dean (20), a law student with dyslexia, upon exam preparation and practice.

Tutoring Approach:

I will tailor whatever I teach to my pupil's needs. I am very easy to get along with and very open to how you think you or your child will best learn. Above all I would want a pupil to look forward to my sessions with them so will make sure that they are practical, interesting and varied. If you have any questions at all or specific enquiries, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Personal Description:
I am a working actor and a recent Graduate of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Before going to drama school I went to The University of Nottingham where I achieved a first class degree in English Language and Literature. I am self-motivated, enthusiastic and passionate about Drama and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently worked as a Maths and English tutor with Explore learning. I taught Maths and English to children aged 4 - 14 of various abilities. I received training in the National Curriculum as well as current tutoring methods. I have a particular strength in preparing students for 11+ exams.

In Bristol I assisted on and led various Drama workshops including; introduction to Shakespeare, confidence building and audition technique.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and enthusiastic with a proven record of working well with children. I believe that every child can benefit from one-on-one tuition; whether they need extra help with a subject they are struggling with or they would relish the challenge of extension work. Private tuition can give them the extra time they need to let difficult ideas settle and to encourage them to ask questions and push themselves further. Above all I will try to make every session fun, relaxed and positive. This is not 'school' but a opportunity to bring their learning to life.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified TEFL with over nine years of professional service and am able to support any level from non speaker to graduate and business. In addition to standard course material I am able to tailor lessons to suite specific study requirements and can provide conversation classes, offer guidance on exam technique as well as provide assistance on everyday tasks such as shopping, banking or anything else a student may need help with.

I now teach face-to-face and online and have clients request my services from around the world.

Teaching Experience:

2003-5 Head teacher: Centro de Estudios de la Ribera
Responsible for the management and training of staff, producing the school curriculum and long term plans and materials from basic to advanced study. I also planned and taught lessons to students of varying ability in classes from 1-15 students.
2005-10 English Teacher ICI Language School
Responsible for the planning and teaching of lessons from introductory to advanced level including TOEIC, TOEFL and EILS. Classes ranged from 1-5 hours in length and contained 1-10 students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been described as an enriching teacher who has strived to create a meaningful learning atmosphere to promote excellent results and as a committed, conscientious professional consistently seeking to improve lessons- I have even won an award as an outstanding and distinguished teacher, and while this good the fulfillment I have got from working to the best of my ability is more personally rewarding as I have been considered teacher, mentor and trusted friend with many of my students.

As a professional I can appreciate the desire to develop oneself academically or for career purposes, although as a mother and wife of a success immigrant family I truly understand the personal need to grow together and onward to acheive a prosperous, happy and secure future.

Personal Description:
Law graduate from Swansea University, I specialise in, A-level law, level 3 Ilex, Sociology of Law, Human Rights, International Law, Anti Social Behaviour and Criminal Evidence. I also teach Maths and English up to GCSE level at a reputable FE college. I hold a PGCE in post-compulsory education and training and am also studying towards a Masters degree in Education.

I travel frequently between Bridgend and Cardiff.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Law, Maths and English at a Further Education College since January 2012. I also have experience teaching English and Maths within the primary sector.


I plan, create and teach lessons around the syllabus set out by the exam board, producing lesson plans, booklets, worksheets and slideshows, using modern technology as a fundamental teaching aid.

As a private tutor I have provided additional support to struggling learners. This tuition has allowed me to teach on a one-to-one basis, to learners aged 24 - 50. I have assisted these individuals by explaining course content, producing hand-outs, providing quick responses to questions sent via email, going through the syllabus/exam requirements/mark schemes, providing long term lesson planning and providing positive support to those who are obviously anxious. As a private tutor I have taught contract law, client carer and Civil Litigation at level 3 ILEX. I have also tutored tort and human rights at level 6 degree. I keep up to date with developments within law and provide learners with the skills to do likewise. During this period of time I worked with a number of students who had both mental and physical difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

Relating to the student is key, as a relatively young teacher myself this is something I practice. Student participation is the main focus point of my teaching method, I act to facilitate and guide learning rather than spoon feed knowledge.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Warwick with a BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Physics. I am currently undertaking an Intercollegiate Masters course in Theoretical Physics at Queen Mary University of London and University College London. I am a keen footballer and runner with an outgoing personality.

Teaching Experience:

I have guided the positive development of over 10 GCSE/A level students from C to A as well as their personal statements for university. I managed to improve their fundamental skills. This experience, along with my engaging personality has allowed me to polish my interpersonal skills and become a very effective communicator. I completed a teaching course at the University of Warwick, which gave me a first hand experience of teaching in a school; I independently organised and taught 3 lessons, which received positive feedback.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a flair for making demanding concepts more accessible to others. This is due to my awareness of the nuances of topics and my firm command of the subject matter. I allow students to understand novel concepts by translating them into ideas that are their own. Students can then independently deduce the theories leading to a firm comprehension. I focus hugely on improving their ability to identify the underlying logical structure of a theory as it allows the students to test and confirm the validity of the concepts.

Personal Description:
I am a father of three children, two of whom have finished university and one about to start.
I've been married for 32 years - to the same lady!
My original degree was in Civil Engineering which I did for 25 years, then I requalified as a Primary teacher about 10 years ago.
I do a lot of singing and have competed internationally for years - I am also the Musical Director of a choir.
About 10 years go, I built my own house - I'm just about to finish the garden!
Retirement approaches as a teacher, but I'm not ready to stop.

Teaching Experience:

I completed the Graduate (Teacher) Training Program 10 years ago and up until December 2012 I worked in a Special Needs School ever since, specialising in autism and learning disability.
I used to run a small class of students who required constant 1 to 1 support, and I mostly delivered the Primary Curriculum.
I now work for Nottingham City Council in the Inclusive Education Service as an Autism Team Teacher, delivering specialist support and training to mainstream teachers in both primary and secondary settings.

Tutoring Approach:

My first task is to build a relationship with my student whereby they (and their parents) know they can trust me and we can work together in a relaxed atmosphere.
I use an online software package to deliver, assess and report progress, and it covers literacy, numeracy and science up to Year 6. This package is ideal for both primary mainstream and older special needs students , and can include homework tasks where appropriate.
Ideally, I would prefer to work face-to-face with my students, either at their home or mine, but this is not absolutely necessary in these days of Skype. Probably some sort of mix of delivery is not a bad idea.
My purpose is to help students achieve their full potential - whatever that may be. Sometimes this will simply involve unlocking a few doors, sometimes it may contribute positively to exams - it all depends upon the individual.

Personal Description:
Upon leaving the Royal Air Force after an eleven year long career serving as an engineer both at home and overseas, I followed a busy career in Hospitality Management. A chance reading of the local press pointed me in the direction of university. After completing a degree in English, I embarked on a career in teaching - a vocation which took me to the Middle East. Travel is a passion, a result of which was my becoming a published author (2011).

Teaching Experience:

Experienced teacher of English at UK secondary/college level and English as a second language in UK schools and businesses.
Five years' teaching experience at secondary/college level -English, SAT, TOEFL, History, Geography for international schools in the United Arab Emirates.
Adult learning classes - teaching English as a second language for social and business use.

Tutoring Approach:

Understand the reasons that my students want to learn; tailor tutoring to specifically target these aims. Regularly review and revise subject/topic before moving onto the next stage. Ultimately, learning should be fun.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teaching Experience:

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

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

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge graduate and have been a qualified teacher of languages (French and German) and English as an Additional Language for four years, working in secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I enjoy working with all age groups from primary children to GCSE, A Level and degree level. I also spent a year working for a translation company specialising in business and financial translations and continue to do so on a freelance basis.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE at the University of Birmingham in 2009 and have been teaching for the last 4 years at secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I have taught French and German to all secondary age groups from years 7 to 13, including a number of GCSE and A Level groups. I have good knowledge of examination requirements, including GCSE controlled assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is tailored to the needs of the individual student. Generally, I try to create a balance between the different language skills such as writing and speaking, as well as including vocabulary and grammar work. With exam students in particular, I focus on the syllabus requirements including preparation for the controlled assessment tasks at GCSE and the A Level speaking exams. I also work on exam skills and techniques for listening, reading and memorisation. An important part of my work is boosting students' confident and making lessons enjoyable as well as productive.

Personal Description:
I'm twenty years of age and I will begin my third year reading English at the University of Cambridge early in October. I'm enthusiastic about tutoring because I've experienced first hand the potential to inspire young people to success through encouragement and the fostering of ability; my own English teacher was the reason that I became interested in English literature and eventually went on to study it at Cambridge. But more than this I feel that the subjects I have a knowledge of (as listed below) have made very positive impressions upon my personality, being deeply rooted in culture, ethics, responsibility and rights. I really believe in my subjects and I want to pass that passion on to young people.

To dispel any concern about my background, I am from a low-income, single-parent household. My two years at Cambridge has introduced me to very high level academia and to peers who had a better education (at least on paper) than I did. My experiences of comprehensive school education and world-class university have shaped me into a person who is able to engage with anyone from any background, and I really believe in helping people from Stoke-on-Trent and the Midlands more generally to reach upper-level institutions, in which they are vastly under-represented.

Teaching Experience:

I have very little teaching experience and I will in no way disguise that from you. My only formal role as a tutor was during high school and some of VI form, in which I tutored 11-15 year old children in reading once per week.

I would like to take this opportunity to stress that I have no formal qualifications in teaching and that I will only be available until early October; my sessions would be, in this case, catered toward short-term goals which could be achieved before this time.

Tutoring Approach:

Having no previous experience, my approach would be somewhat experimental, immersive and very much catered to the individual involved.

My view, from experience, is that instilling enthusiasm in the tutee is of paramount importance. Learning by rote or by simply forcing information into someone's head does not tend to engage their creative energies in the writing of an essay, for example. As such, I would hope to take up an approach which is both expansive and thorough in its appreciation of the material at hand; but also effectively explore the curriculum and mark-schemes for the examination(s) in order to achieve effective deployment of the material.

Some samples of how I might teach runs as follows:

-- English --

[Assuming we are working with, say, Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men]

The main bulk of teaching would involve and in-depth exploration of:

- The novel's historical and cultural significance;
- Possible film productions, and how the difference in media has affected reception and portrayal of the story;
- Themes running within the texture of the language: their metaphorical and symbolic significance;
- Reading aloud extracts of the novel to feel the characters and their dialogue rather than confining them to silent reading;
- Creative representations of the plot, its characters and the importance of the work more generally.

In teaching these elements the mark-scheme will have largely been fulfilled from a material perspective. Overlooked elements of the mark-scheme and notes from examiners reports can often unlock the higher grade boundaries for students who are able but simply do not know that they have to include these elements in an essay. These may include:

- A thoughtful, relevant personal response to the work;
- Use of specific types of language, punctuation and grammar according to the level of the examination;
- Producing 'flair' in essay writing;
- Structuring a well-written essay;
- Spelling, vocabulary;
- A focussed response.

These are all requirements which can be trained in a tutee, and are relatively easy to attain through practice and with the right kind of material to deploy. What I propose is holistic and engaging, as well as being designed with a view to developing written technique to access the higher areas of the mark scheme.




This example is largely catered toward GCSE tutoring for English Literature; but I am flexible in the range of subjects that I have knowledge of and in the level of teaching which is require according to the ability of the tutee. My only request is that, should you be interested in having me provide tutoring services, you allow me some time and plenty of information to work with in order to get to know the student and his/her capabilities. I am a fast reader and a quick learner, so most subjects within my remit should be applicable.

Personal Description:
I am a second year student who is currently studying at the University of Greenwich and I study Chemistry BSc Hons. I am aspiring to be a Chemistry teacher in the future as I would love to share my passion and education with the generations below.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at many tuition centers and I have been teaching from home for nearly two years. All my students have come away from my teaching with high grades and they have all eventually gotten into good London universities such as, The School of Economics and Political Science or Queen Mary University.

Tutoring Approach:

As I am currently a student, I work with other students very well as I understand the stress and pressure and help they need. I work by teaching them topics in the beginning but then I like all my students to gain a sense of independence when working as that's what they will need when they are in the exam. Many students make the mistake of learning from a textbook, word for word, when the key is understanding, that's what I give in every single subject I teach as that's what differentiates from the A grade students to the other students.

I also give the older students support and advice with their university applications and I also help with open days, I like to be more than a tutor, I like to be my students support so they can be the best they can be in their future work or education. At the end of the day 'If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough' - Albert Einstein.

Personal Description:
I currently live in the Oxfordshire area and have just finished studying for a Masters Degree in history at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. I previously attended Kingston university where i studied for my BA in history. Throughout my time at university I have studied politics, economic, philosophy and english and would be happy and confident to tutor in all of these areas. I have extensive experience working with children of all ages, this comes not only through academic tuition, but managing and training cricket and rugby teams.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past four years I have taught over ten children all of whom have been at varying levels. This has included teaching multiple exam boards, and various subjects. I have also been working as a teacher at a home school for four children, this has involved taking the children on school trips both in the UK and other places around the world. Therefore, as part of this role I have to set lesson plans, mark work, and set homework.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to remember each person is different and that they all learn differently therefore I ensure that I am very adaptable and flexible to the students needs. I also feel that you learn best when you find something interesting therefore I like to make sure that all lessons are interesting and that the tutee can relate to the subject/topic.

Personal Description:
I am a voracious reader, and was therefore tempted to choose English as my main subject in university, but eventually decided on French. I studied at Stanford University for four years, including one year through its study abroad programme in Paris. I have also worked many years as a professional musician, touring in the UK, Europe, USA and Mexico.

Teaching Experience:

I taught English to high school students for one year in France.
In a night school in Utah (USA) I taught English as a second language to adults.
I have taught music (guitar, ukulele and piano) for nearly 10 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in student-centred teaching, so rather than impose strict rules I approach each student as an individual in order to find the best approach for gaining skills and confidence in the subject. Structure is also important, however, and it's important to use exercises and repetition to really come to terms with a subject. Games and songs have their place, too; let's have fun while we're learning!
