Personal Description:
I am a very enthusiastic and approachable young professional working for the Digital & Technology Division at Sainsbury's Head Office. I love reading and writing (currently trying to write my first novel!). I studied Philosophy at university which I adored as I love to learn and practice new theories.

I work well with children and young adults as I struggled to learn new things first time round at school so fully appreciate the need to revisit topics and challenges multiple times to really get it! I am a good role model as I am friendly, confident and great at listening, mainly because I like to get to know people and understand them.

Personally I am very interested in sports, films and documentaries. I also love dogs!

At university I was involved in societies investigating learning habits and the practice behind tuition and solving learning problems. I find the best way to teach somebody something is to establish how they pick things up, and then repeat it and add a dash of humour to seal the knowledge. Tutoring is new for me but I love to teach because I love to see progress and I understand how tough particular topics can be at school. Please ask if you would like an employer reference.

Teaching Experience:

I was a big part of societies at university investigating learning types and how best to teach. I have also worked closely with the Learning and Development Division at Sainsbury's so have an appreciation about the importance of learning throughout life.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning has to be fun and rewarding or it just becomes extra work. I like to teach with examples, be that stories, people, pets or colours. I find if you can learn something by comparing it to an interesting example, you won't forget it. I will use achievable but stretching targets per session to be sure the student is aware of what they're aiming for and how they'll get there. This then contributes to the reward of hitting a target and being proud about it which is something that's important to me. To measure progress I will set little and often assessments to be sure to monitor where the student needs extra focus.

Personal Description:
I am an Oxford graduate and current law student who is passionate about helping students of all ages master their studies and gain the confidence to succeed.

My background is a bit untraditional (I've done two BAs- one in the US and one in the UK), but between my two undergraduate degrees, I have been lucky enough to get the depth and focus of a British BA as well as the flexibility of an American BA. As a result of my background, I have a strong understanding of many subjects and the ability to adapt my thinking and teaching to different disciplines from the creative to the analytical.

I have a 2.i from my BA in Philosophy and Theology from Oxford, a First from my BA in Humanities with Pre-Med courses (Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Calculus) at Providence College in the United States, and an IB Diploma. I completed my Graduate Diploma in Law last year and am currently in my final year of legal studies at BPP University.

In my spare time, I like to work on crossword puzzles (I even competed in a tournament last year) and a few other somewhat nerdy indulgences like board games, video games and, of course, Star Wars. I always make time for learning something new where I can, and, having recently worked out the ukulele, I am currently working (slowly) on picking up Japanese.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring different ages of students in various disciplines, from helping undergraduates improve their essay-writing skills and preparing Oxbridge applicants for interview to assisting primary-school and SEN students with reading, writing and maths. I love helping students build confidence and master topics they once thought too challenging.

One of my favourite subjects to tutor is English and writing. During my first BA, I worked as a writing tutor at my university's tutoring centre, where I helped students analyse literature, brainstorm essay topics, construct thesis statements and outlines, and revise essay drafts for clarity and grammar. Over the past year, I've helped not only GCSE and A-level students but also primary-school SEN students improve their writing skills and confidence.

I am also very excited to tutor in Philosophy. Last year, I had the great pleasure of preparing one of my tutees for a Philosophy interview at Cambridge by discussing various topics and texts and working on essays together each week. We both enjoyed our sessions together greatly, and I was absolutely delighted when she was offered a place.

Finally, I have also worked as a teaching and lab assistant for my university's chemistry department and so am used to adapting my instruction for students with different aptitudes, interests and skillets. As a chemistry lab assistant, I worked alongside a lecturer to help university chemistry students in group hands-on chemistry lab lectures improve their lab techniques and see how each experiment fit in with the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the best way to learn something challenging is to let students work through the problem at their own pace until they can see the solution for themselves and build the skills they'll need to succeed in the future on their own, so it's very important for me when I tutor to make sure that the student is in the driver's seat. I like to let the tutee's needs guide each session, so I begin each tutorial by asking the student what he or she wants to focus on and what he or she is struggling with. Whether it's reading through an essay or working through a maths problem, I like to help students break down a complicated problem and let them guide me through their thought processes, correcting and instructing where necessary and encouraging the student during their successes. Of course, there will always be complicated topics that require a more didactic style of tutoring, but I think the Socratic method is much more effective not only for ensuring students truly understand the material, but also for empowering them and giving them confidence in their work.

I believe an important goal for a tutor should be to help her tutee gain confidence, as many students only seek tutoring after having struggled to grasp a concept fully on their own and thus often tend to underestimate their ability in the subject. This is especially true for SEN students, who have often been misunderstood by their teachers and peers. A tutor shouldn't be just an instructor- she should be a coach and cheerleader, too! I honestly believe there is nothing more rewarding than watching my tutees grow in knowledge and confidence over the course of our sessions together.

I also believe that, where possible, it's important to add a dash of something interesting to tutorials, especially with younger students. I've found that when a tutee is losing interest or struggling to engage with the material (often because they're having trouble understanding it), finding new ways to approach the problem, either through games, real-life application or creative thought experiments, can help a student get reacquainted with a subject they might have dismissed as uninteresting.

I am 32 years old and have been teaching for the last 11 years. I live in the centre of Winchester and work in a local school. I live with my husband, 2 year old son and 2 cats.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in London for the past 10 years, whilst there I worked in Year 1, 3 and 6. I now work in a school in Winchester and am in Year 6.

Personal Description:
*NOW BOOKING FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2016-17*

Thank you for looking at my profile.

I am a full time, professional tutor, specialising in English, maths and general study skills. I achieve excellent results and students look forward to my sessions. As detailed below, I have a wealth of experience and success working with students with Special Educational Needs, and other difficulties which have prevented them from accessing the curriculum fully.

I have a very calm, patient and friendly approach to tuition. I will explain and revisit as many times as needed and use a variety of methods to make tricky topics memorable. I use a range of resources and approaches, tailored to student preferences and different learning styles.


I am qualified teacher with a BEd teaching degree and a Masters degree in education, plus other courses attended to further my professional development.

MEd: I have a Masters Degree in Education, completed in 2013.
The modules I studied are as follows:
`Educational enquiry` (research in education) (2013)
`Investigating language in action`(supporting learners of English) (2012)
`Difficulties in literacy development` (specifically dyslexia) (2008)

British Dyslexia Association and Unicorn Maths- `Dyscalculia Plus` (2012)

BEd Primary with Qualified Teacher Status (subject specialism English) (2003)

BTEC National Diploma in Childhood Studies (Learning and development 0-8 years) (1999)

9 GCSE`s all A-C:
Child Development, English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, French, History, Religious Education, Science. (1997)

Teaching Experience:

My specialist subjects are English, maths and Special Educational Needs.

I have held a number of roles:

*private tutor
*university Specialist Tutor for dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism
*primary school class teacher for nursery to Y2 (inner city school; many children had behavioural/emotional issues and did not have English as their first language)
*cover teacher for nursery to Y6
*subject co-ordinator for Personal, Social and Health Education
*subject co-ordinator for music



As well as teaching, I have worked in a variety of settings as a nursery nurse and nanny. I have been able to build excellent relationships with parents and children and am still in touch with families that I have worked with over the years.



References: available on request

Tutoring Approach:

I support students with many different needs and situations. These include:

*dyslexia
*dyspraxia
*dyscalculia (difficulty with maths)
*self esteem or confidence issues
*children who struggle at school due to emotional or behavioural issues
*children who have missed school for various reasons
*children who are home educated
*adults who want to `catch up` or improve their English and maths
*college and university students who need support with essay writing, proofreading and exam revision techniques


Over the past 4 years in my role as a tutor, my students have made excellent progress in terms of confidence, catching up with age-related expectations and achieving the desired level or above in 11+ or Year Six SATs. I have a loyal student base and much of my work now comes from existing student recommendations.


Recent successes:

Children who have not responded to tuition in the past have really engaged with the subject and made good progress.

Children who were struggling with Year 6 SATs have achieved at least one level higher than predicted.

Those tutored for 11+ exams have passed and gained entry to their chosen school (Two to Wolverhampton Grammar, one to King Edward`s Birmingham).

Feedback from a Masters level student on completion of her dissertation:

I would like to express my deepest thanks to my support tutor Zoe whose support has been most invaluable, without which I could not have possibly completed this project, and I am forever grateful for her help.

Personal Description:
Specialist maths tuition - I have 17 years of teaching experience across the primary age range and have worked in both the independent and state sectors. For the last 6 years I have worked as lead mathematics intervention teacher, having trained in the Numbers Count programme from Edge Hill University and coordinated and delivered interventions to children from Year 1-6 as well as teaching sets in KS2. All my work has been very successful in helping children close the gaps on their peers and achieve age related expectations. More recently I have also set up a mathematics consultancy focussed on training teachers and helping children to gain a clear understanding of maths and maximising attainment and enjoyment of the subject.
I have lots of tutoring experience over 17 years, both for general numeracy and literacy support as well as entrance exam coaching but my speciality is certainly in maths coaching where I feel I can offer an outstanding service in supporting children who struggle.

Teaching Experience:

17 years as class teacher in Foundation stage, Y1 and Y2 followed by work with children from across the whole school (y1-6) and most recently in KS2 teaching the least able children in maths and achieving above average results. This year my school was in the top 5% nationwide for end of KS2 achievement.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and approachable and have always maintained good relationships with the children I have worked with. I make lessons fun and try hard to support and complement the work they do at school to ensure continuity and progression. I am very much focussed on supporting learning in a practical and memorable way.

Personal Description:
I am a confident, diligent and sociable person, with a wide knowledge of world history, and specialising in American and South-East Asian history and culture. I hold a double first class Bachelors degree in History and American Studies from Canterbury Christ Church University, and have had many years experience leading youth projects such as youth councils, young persons' scrutiny forums (YPSF) and have acted as a liasion on several historical and cultural preservation projects such as the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) and the Church House Preservation Committee.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience as a teaching assistant to KS3 and KS4 level history at a state secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a holistic approach to the teaching of history, ensuring that the student becomes engaged within a fuller understanding of the period being studied. As a former student and teach of history, I realise that the principal block to a tutee's understanding of historical concepts is a lack of immersion within the relevant time-frames and thus an inability to fully comprehend why certain actions were taken, and the wider effect this had.

Thus in my approach I am firm believer that it is as important for every student to understand to a higher level than that offered by the current state curriculum the context of the period they are studying. As a consequence I offer tailored introductions to said period's culture, economy, religious and political setting, and even physical geography.

Furthermore, I offer the necessary skills to craft this knowledge into well-reasoned, informed essays. My intimate knowledge of the state education system and beyond has imbued me with the ability to gauge how assignments will be assessed and thus I can work with students not only on improving their knowledge, but showcasing this in highly-marked, structured and coherent written forms.

I use a number of methods to achieve this, including homework assignments, but also using character adoption, audio-visual aids and a mixture of written and verbal questions of varying length and form.

  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (25 p.h.)
  • History
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have a BA Honours Degree in English Studies from Aleppo University in Syria in 2000. I embarked on two Postgraduate Diplomas at Aleppo University one in Linguistics (2002); the other in Education and Qualification in 2003. In both of these Diplomas I was awarded a Distinction. In 2002, I was fortunate in gaining a scholarship to study in the UK and was nominated to study in the department of Language and Linguistics at the University of Essex. I found this course to be immensely useful to me as a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) professional as I was able to observe a range of different EAP (English for Academic Purposes)classrooms; make academic presentations and really developed my love of scholarship which fired me with the enthusiasm to read for a PhD degree. I finished my doctorate in TESOL at the University of Ulster entitled "EAP Teachers Approaches to Giving Written Feedback on Academic Writing in British and Syrian ELT Centres". . I am extremely interested in teaching the language skills (as my recent doctorate shows). I am extremely hard working and sociable. I have good comparative knowledge of Western and Islamic societies which I could share with students where pertinent. I also have two qualifications from Ulster University in Peer Mentoring and Counselling.

I have strong interpersonal, communication, and classroom management skills and self-motivator. Apart from being an interesting experience in itself, tutoring is an ideal opportunity for me at this stage of my career as the area of this job is interesting to me and I have got the enthusiasm and motivation and energy to do it well and to develop things.I would like consider offering online tutorials (email writing tutorials for students who can not attend some classes).

Teaching Experience:

In the Diploma of Education and Qualification, I have been trained how to teach and how to deliver lectures in Arabic and English and also how to prepare lesson plan. I have experience of teaching university students in Syria as I was a lecturer at Aleppo University from 2002 to 2013. I enjoy teaching and lecturing and love my profession as I am particularly interested in communicating with individuals and groups. My colleagues and supervisors all say that I am a natural communicator and this, coupled with my knowledge of the field, leads me to think that I would make a good teacher. My mother tongue language is Arabic, yet my knowledge of written and spoken English is very good as well. I am also interested in materials design and curriculum development in ELT and could make useful contributions in these areas. I have also specialized in ESP, Materials and Methods in ELT, Language Teachers in Classrooms and Vocabulary and would be interested in teaching international students. My job in Syria was delivering pre-sessional programmes in academic English language to Syrian postgraduate students. Those students have to attend some EAP and ESP courses and pass the final exam which will enable them to pursue their high studies in Syria or in some English speaking countries like UK, USA and Canada. My teaching experience gives me a deeper insight and understanding of actual teaching/learning contexts. When I did my MA degree at Essex University, I taught some international students as part of the "Teaching Practice" module. I have been trained how to write a lesson plan for international students and how to use the PowerPoint for delivering lectures. Furthermore, I am very au fait with technology in the classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

It is the application of an integrating approach for the development of communicative skills in the lesson, in which the four skills in the acquisition of knowledge of a foreign language can be taught in a coherent way, and practiced together, with a distinction of the importance of one upon the other. One image for teaching English as a second or foreign language (ESL/EFL) is that of a tapestry. The tapestry is woven from many strands, such as the characteristics of the teacher, the learner, the setting, and the relevant languages (i.e., English and the native languages of the learners and the teacher). For the instructional loom to produce a large, strong, beautiful, colorful tapestry, all of these strands must be interwoven in positive ways. For example, the instructor's teaching style must address the learning style of the learner, the learner must be motivated, and the setting must provide resources and values that strongly support the teaching of the language. However, if the strands are not woven together effectively, the instructional loom is likely to produce something small, weak, ragged, and pale--not recognizable as a tapestry at all.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate of Cambridge University and I am friendly, reliable, and easygoing. I have lived in Berlin, Australia, and the UK, and I enjoy reading novels and classical music. I look forward to meeting you!

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring History, English, Politics, and Classical Civilisations for AS and A level. My students have all improved as a result of my tutoring, and achieved higher grades than they anticipated. I have also tutored for university admissions, and several of my students gained places at Oxford and Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring depends above all on the student. I try to identify very specifically what aspects of the subject the student finds challenging, and focus on those. I often ask the student to explain the topic to me, to identify where there is work to be done. I also use practice papers/essays and practice interviews for university admissions.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher of English for over 10 years and have worked in the UK, Japan, UAE, Qatar and Italy. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to experience different cultures and education. I worked in British International Schools that all followed the British Curriculum.
I have a great passion and enthusiasm for my subject and I love to share this with my students. I hope I can make a difference and help those who have potential but are currently lacking confidence and under achieving. With support they are able to meet their own expectations.

Teaching Experience:

An experienced English teacher of 9 years. In this time I have been head of department and KS3 Co-ordinator. I have a thorough knowledge of many examination boards and I have also been a marker. I have a good understanding of the curriculum and how to achieve the required levels/grades.

I have recently learned that the students I tutored last term (academic year 2014-2015) all gained C and above in English Language and Literature. This is a reflection of my input but more so the dedication and motivation of my tutees. I am very proud of their commitment and hard work.

Tutoring Approach:

I think tuition should not be thought of by the student as extra homework but more one of support and advice. It is the opportunity to have one to one lessons in a safe and comfortable environment. My approach is positive , tailored to the needs of each student and relevant.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, supportive and adaptable tutor with more than 5 years teaching experience.

After graduating with a Masters Degree in Drama and Theatre Studies I moved to South Korea to teach. I take great joy in teaching and have a great interest in many subjects and being able to instil a joy of learning in those I teach.

I understand the power of one to one tutoring in helping students succeed; whether in a subject they excel at or in areas they would like to improve. I am happy to tutor school-age pupils to help with their classroom work, as well as helping with exam preparation for GCSE's

Teaching Experience:

I have five years teaching experience; three and a half years teaching experience in South Korea and 18 months tutoring in the UK. In Korea I specialised in English, maths and science to students aged 5-16. I have taught in classrooms with 30+ students as well as in smaller groups and one to one tutoring. Since returning to the UK I have been tutoring one on one with a number of clients since September 2014 focussing on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science. I have both classroom and tutoring experience with students from primary to GCSE level and can tailor approaches and focus to match students' needs. I have experience working with students of varying levels and have consistently been able to help them to achieve their goals, with a strong set of results in the 2015 GCSE exams period.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe it's important to teach in an engaging and interesting way, getting to know my students so I am able to tailor lessons to suit them. I try to make the material I teach relevant to the student and approach the subject in a way that makes it accessible and relatable to them, and the things they enjoy. I think it is important to work through subject areas students are having difficulty with and then build on this to engage them fully in the subject, enabling students to understand the key concepts as well as the more universal approaches to learning.

I believe it is important to instil an interest in learning and try to approach the material I teach from a variety of different ways to ensure comprehension. Having access to a tutor should enable the student to improve their confidence and realise their own potential.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Angela and I am a fully qualified teacher. I have been teaching for 4 years and during that time I have taught across the whole of the primary age range, from Foundation-Year 6. I am currently working as a supply teacher as I have recently relocated to the area, which I am thoroughly enjoying! This enables me to give much more time into tutoring. I am a hard-working, patient and likeable person who works hard to achieve goals.

Teaching Experience:

As before, I have been teaching for 4 years. During this time I have taught classes ranging from foundation to year 6 which has given me a wide breadth of the curriculum and how best to teach to each age range and suit needs of particular children. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and extremely enjoy tutoring as I notice the amount of progress that can be made from 1-1 tuition. During my 4 years of teaching I have been involved in an Ofsted inspection, in which I was graded 'Outstanding' for my work. I would like to use my teaching skills to support children who may need that 1-1 tuition to further children in their learning, in order to achieve the very best that they can. I have been tutoring for the past 3 years. In this time I have tutored mostly year 6 children through maths, literacy and reading support, as well as covering science. I have also supported younger children in years 1, 2,3, 4 and 5 through their day to day progress reaching their goals and beyond.
