Personal Description:
Hi! I really look forward to working with you to make you a better student and an eager learner. I am passionate about learning, and I hope that I can help you become passionate too!

I'm currently working on a PhD at Queen's, and have already completed a Master's with Commendation.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 9 years experience tutoring at all levels. I have worked with both young people and adults on a range of subjects and in a variety of settings, from early school learning on reading and writing skills to preparing students for exams to helping adults improve their skills. I am happy to talk to you about my experiences and how I can help you become a better student.

Tutoring Approach:

I will construct an individualized study program for you based on your needs and skills. I find that I work best in concert with the student, when we can communicate about your needs and how we can achieve your goals. I am flexible about hours and locations, and my first goal is to make you passionate about learning. To do that, you need to be comfortable and focused, and I will do what is necessary to make you relaxed and excited about learning.

Please note that for online tutoring I am also available for face-to-face chat via Skype.

My name is Tori, 33, and I am a teacher of History and English.

I have a Ba (Hons) degree in History and English Literature from the University of Liverpool. I have attained my PGCE qualification from the University of Newport and have a Postgraduate Certificate in Management Studies from the University of Glamorgan.

I also possess Level Three certificates in Numeracy and Literacy from Edexcel.

I will shortly be commencing an MPhil in Medieval History with the University of Bangor.

Teaching Experience:

I am now in my fourth year of teaching. I have taught 14-19 years A Level History and the Welsh Baccalaureate at Coleg Llandrillo Rhyl Sixth and have also taught GSCE History to mature learners at Abergele Community College.

I have experience of teaching History with the WJEC and OCR exam boards at A level and GCSE, and of English Literature and Language with WJEC at GCSE level. I am also familiar with AQA, having also taught A level Archaeology.

For OCR history I have taught modules which include the Crusades, Winston Churchill, the Tudors and World War II. For WJEC I teach Renaissance and Reformation Europe, Tudor England and Wales and 1930s Britain. I have also taught the American West and the History of Medicine for OCR GCSE history.

Tutoring Approach:

**MY FIRST MEETING WITH PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS IS ALWAYS A FREE, NO OBLIGATION MEETING SO IF YOU ARE UNSURE IF I CAN HELP PLEASE STILL GET IN TOUCH**

First and foremost, I aim to fully understand exactly what my students wish to learn and achieve. To achieve their goals I work collaboratively with my students by utilising their learning preferences in our sessions (something they do not always benefit from in a large classroom environment). I treat all my students fairly and equally and provide sessions which are inclusive, varied and inspire curiousity and a desire to learn. My sessions are never dull!

I am happy to visit students at their home or have them come to my home.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm a friendly, highly motivated and intelligent recent graduate from the University of Sheffield. I'm twenty four and have completed Undergraduate and Master's degrees in Geography. I have consistently been a high achiever. My Degrees were completed with First class honours and Distinction, whilst I gained all 'A' grades in my A Levels. Since graduating last year I have invested my energies working for the Centre for Recent Drawing in North London as a curatorial assistant whilst building up my freelance tutoring work. I have a passion for art and am also a keen cyclist, enjoying long cycle rides out to Brighton or further afield. Furthermore, I am also preparing my thesis, completed at Masters Level, for submission to an internationally reputed academic geography journal.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst at college I participated in a scheme linking with local schools teaching basic numeracy skills. Since graduating I have built up my private tutoring, teaching Geography, Politics and English Literature up to A Level. However, I believe the best experience that I have is my own, recent experience of the education system, from A Levels to a Masters Degree. I am used to current syllabuses, and most importantly, I know how to succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient yet enthusiastic tutor. I tailor my tuition to each individual tutee, looking at what goals each person wants to achieve and working out the best way I can help in their attainment. I will research the particular syllabus of each of the tutee's courses, tailoring my teaching to it. Importantly I have access to up-to-date syllabuses so all my teaching will be relevant. I also have access to exam papers and mark schemes to practice exam technique. I am an experienced editor, having copy edited published fiction. Therefore I am an accomplished proof reader of essays and can give excellent suggestions on how to improve essay writing skills.

Personal Description:
I am a fourth year medical student at Imperial College London. Having recently been through high school and excelled in both GCSEs and A-levels, I know what it requires for a student to perform to the best of their ability. I am a strong believer that with hard work and the right guidance, most students can go on to achieve excellent grades.

Teaching Experience:

During my A-levels, I have helped teach younger students in Geography and Maths classes, but the majority of my teaching experience has been with my two younger brothers. I have worked very hard with them over the years and take pride in the fact that they too performed exceptionally well at school through my help.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make my lessons interactive, explaining complex ideas in the simplest and most interesting way possible. I strongly believe that student must first develop a good conceptual understanding of the subject before refining their exam technique. I will work hard for my students and expect them to do the same in their studies.

Personal Description:
I am Scottish, currently living in London since December 2012. I have a home in Spain where I enjoy the outdoor life, in particular riding my horse and walking my dogs. However, my two sons and my little grandson live in London and so I am spending valuable time with them and enjoying city life for a change. I also teach yoga and have recently started a class in Newington Green.

Teaching Experience:

I am a graduate of Glasgow University and a PGCE qualified primary teacher with over 25 years experience. The breadth of my experience includes special needs, in particular with children on the autistic spectrum and dyslexia. I have lived in Spain for several years and have worked in International Schools as Year 3 and Year 5 teacher and also as a private tutor. Having worked extensively as a private tutor with different nationalities I am also experienced in EAL.

I have been working as a supply teacher for the last 18 months here in London so am now well versed in all aspects of Primary Education as it is implemented here.

Tutoring Approach:

Communication, for me, is the key to harmony. As a tutor, I believe in locating where the individual is on his/her own personal road map. Thus I can gain an understanding of what the child/young person's needs are and how they view the world and their place in it. From there we can establish together what their motivation is and so learning becomes an exciting journey. I believe that if children are happy and motivated they cannot help but learn but it is crucial to identify the learning style and communicate accordingly.

Personal Description:
I am an employee of the United Nations and a graduate from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). I am available for tutoring on Politics and Sociology at any level, and on History, Philosophy and Economics at GCSE level. I am happy to provide help on exam revision, essay writing, entrance exam preparation, university applications and general reading and writing skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years' experience of tutoring social science subjects to students from a range of different nationalities and backgrounds. I have a strong track record of improving grade scores and passing exams first time. I have proof-read essays for a large number of students who have all subsequently scored top marks for spelling and grammar. I have also formerly proof-read documents in a professional setting for businesses from the Czech Republic and Greece.

Tutoring Approach:

I am flexible in my approach and am happy to adapt to any student's needs. I look to work on all aspects of a student's approach, including revision technique, writing style and exam preparation. My preference is for committed students who will practice and implement what is learnt outside of lessons. I have typically set students exercises for completion before the next lesson in addition to revision work for practise essay questions. The more committed a student is to our classes, the more they will gain from them.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my training to become a barrister. I am looking to work as a tutor for the next 12 - 18 months pending the start of the pupillage stage of my training.

I started my legal training as a mature student after many years in finance and have good, pactical business experience.

I am able to tutor in most humanities subjects but in particular, History, English and Law.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous career I was frequently responsible for the training and development of new school leavers.

As a mature student at university I mentored and helped my peers to understand the subjects being taught.

Tutoring Approach:

I am seeking to work as a tutor as I prefer the more intense and tailored approach which can be taken with individual students or small groups of students.

I believe in building a good, solid basis of knowledge and understanding on which the student can develop their own thoughts and theories enabling a full, in-depth understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
I have just finished a PhD in Medieval History at the University of Cambridge, studying at King's College. I love the fact that history exercises not only historical methodologies, but also utilises language skills, literary analysis and many study skills. When not researching history, I sing in choirs and operettas.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught both at undergraduate level, in one-on-one and group situations, and at primary level. My undergraduate teaching includes lecturing, seminars on religion across the ages and the role of women in medieval Latin texts, and supervisions relating to early medieval European and Irish history. I have also helped teach primary aged children reading and writing skills when they were having difficulties in the classroom. My experience is therefore very varied, ranging from teaching young children with their own difficulties to the brightest undergraduates in the country.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very much student led. I believe it is of the utmost importance to encourage a student to express their own thoughts and ideas, led by the questioning of their tutor. It is very important to establish a good rapport between student and tutor, in order that communication will be at its best, and a student will always feel comfortable enough to say when they do not understand. One-to-one tutoring is perfect for this approach.

Personal Description:
Postgraduate Student.

I am a twenty-one year old postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and understand the tricky bits of their material which is escaping their understanding. I am a Canadian studying abroad here in Glasgow and therefore do not have GCSEs or A levels, but I have the equivalent levels from Canadian institutions with top marks. I tutor best in history, my chosen subject, English or French as a second language, and maths, which I not only did well in during secondary school, but all of which I have also studied at the University level. I get along very well with students of all ages and try to make the tutoring experience a fun an interesting one for any student.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring 1 on 1
ESL teaching (Group sizes from 5-12)
Age range of experience: 7-18 year olds

I have several years of teaching experience in different settings and with different age groups. I've taught English as a Second Language in a camp setting which ran lessons similar to classroom lessons every morning. I had to design my own approaches to various topics which gave me a lot of practice in making studying and learning interesting and easier for children who were less interested or struggling. I also tutored on a private basis for primary school-aged children through the medium of French and English in reading and writing skills as well as the general subjects at that age. I have tutored at the secondary school level in Maths, English, French, Sciences, and History. I have also been a teaching assistant at the University level for both Irish and Scottish Gaelic second language courses as well as a general Celtic World knowledge course.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun.
Aim is to help student learn how they understand instruction so that they are more confident in their own abilities and can perform better in the future.
Use past work to improve on future work.

Learning should be fun and I strive to make the tutoring experience less about school work and more about understanding the ways in which what is being taught is of interest to the student. Finding ways to improve the student's understanding and learning experience sometimes means approaching the material in a different way than is being taught in class. Teachers understand that not all student learn the same way but cannot always deliver their teaching in all these ways. By helping the student understand the material first and then explaining the method the teacher used to explain it first allows the student to reach their full potential, understand the material, and go back to class with a better chance following the teacher's instruction.

All of this is done in a light-mannered way that does not make the child feel as though tutoring is a punishment for not understanding in class, but rather, a (sometimes lengthy) temporary situation until the student becomes more confident about his or her own skills!

Using the student's own work is an important tool for helping them recognize their own areas of difficulty and should be used again as mock exams to help the student see tangible proof of their improvements. The best understanding of any subject comes from watching it being done/having it explained, doing it oneself, and then teaching it in turn.

Personal Description:
My name is Adam and I am 22 and a third year student at the University of Edinburgh, studying for a MA in History. I have studied a variety of topics particularly the past two centuries of British, Russian and American history, but I have also studied Roman, Chinese, and African histories as well as the histories of medicine and science. I am, however, knowledgeable about many other areas of history and able to teach the skills required to study any period.

I achieved an A* and full marks in my final exam of my History A-Level as well as As in Economics and Maths and 10 GCSEs A*-A. I thoroughly enjoy the act of teaching and love to pass on my knowledge to students and see them develop and flourish. Outside of academic studies I am a keen sportsman, playing football, rugby and cricket on a weekly basis.

Teaching Experience:

After achieving my A-levels and leaving school, I returned the following year to help A-level students with their exam preparation and their long essay projects. I spent a week working with students on a one on one basis to give them guidance and practical advice for their studies.

I privately tutored a student from my old secondary school and developed my own skills of working with students as well as providing him the relevant skill-set to succeed in the discipline and he subsequently achieved a high grade in his History A-Level.

At university I have made class presentations detailing key periods in history in which I have specialised and have passed on to classmates the knowledge which I have learned. I have also helped peer review essays and helped several classmates with essay structure and writing skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student has an individual style of learning and as such need to be tutored in a unique way which keeps them interested in the subject and stretches them to reach their potential. I am very enthusiastic about the subject and believe that students learn best when they too are able to connect with the subject they are looking at.

I believe that one of the most important skills to learn as a student of history is to be able to write confidently and coherently. Once this skill is acquired, students will be able to rapidly advance to learn the essential skill of critical analysis of the evidence put before them.

Personal Description:
My name is Barney, I'm 22 years old and an undergraduate history student at King's College London. I live a diverse lifestyle; despite the fact I am diligent and aim to excel in my studies, I also fulfill my time on the sports field, within the theater and in all aspects of life to the full. For example, I am the captain of the King's College London Rugby 1st XV, a position which necessitates not only ability but also a great deal of responsibility. Furthermore, in my 1st year at King's College London I played a lead role in the university production of 'Fame' the musical. Nonetheless, academia is of vital importance to me; I'm constantly striving to learn and I love being able to teach others what I have come across. Most importantly however, I'm an affable, caring and honest person. I know how to make people laugh and I value my people skills above all else. Whilst at school, I undertook an A.C.H.E. scheme (Advice, Care, Help, Empathy), which enabled me to act as a student councilor to anyone feeling upset, worried or just needing guidance.

Teaching Experience:

Within my role as Deputy Head Boy at my secondary school (Truro School, TR1 1TH), I was required not only to fulfill supervisory but also educational roles. This meant aiding the teachers, sometimes by assisting individuals who required extra help.

In the Spring of 2012 I spent two months working among orphanages in a deprived part of Buenos Aires known as the Hidden City, with a volunteer group named L.I.F.E - (Luchemos para una Infancia Feliz y con Esperanza: We Strive for a Childhood with Happiness and Hope.) I was working with children between the ages of 5 and 12 more or less. Although they had very little educational background, it was our duty to impart what we could upon them; it required immense diligence and effort considering many of the children were unwilling to listen, let alone learn. However, this difficult but extremely rewarding opportunity provided me with teaching skills that cannot be underestimated. Namely, the ability to form a positive relationship with the child so as to ensure the best can be achieved.

Tutoring Approach:

As alluded to in the previous section, my approach to tutoring requires the formation of a positive relationship between tutor and tutored. I believe it is essential that there is rapport between both parties, in order to ensure that the tutored performs to their capability. As is nature, people are more willing to learn for those who they respect and like - precisely the opposite occurs if someone dreads tutoring. Educationally speaking, my approach is well structured, but varies greatly depending on the age. Regardless, it will always be in accordance with set examination boards and/or specific entrance exams. My exact approach is more easily demonstrated via e-mail once I know the specifics, and consequently can tailor accordingly.

Personal Description:
Having achieved 7 A*s and 2 As at GCSE, before 3 A grades (English Language, History, General Studies) and a B in Geography at A-level, I realised education was a field I enjoyed and wanted to pursue. Therefore, I completed an Education Studies and History degree at Durham University, before going on to teach at the hugely successful Bryanston Independent School in Dorset for 6 years (2008-2014). My track record of GCSE and A-level results is excellent with every student achieving at least one grade higher than predicted. I have experience in a variety of units and topics ranging from Medieval Britain and early modern Europe, to post WW2 Britain. However, I specialise in the Tudor period. I'm currently taking a break from teaching to pursue a running career but want to keep my teaching experience up to date. Teaching and tutoring is something I really enjoy and will go back to full time in the future. I believe my various roles at Bryanston, alongside my experience as a top level athlete, enable me to help and inspire students from all walks of life to maximize their full potential and achieve their desired goals.

Teaching Experience:

At Bryanston I started as an academic resident before completing a GTP teaching qualification in History, which included teaching practice in a state secondary school and primary school. Then I completed my NQT qualification before going on to mentor other GTP students and American post-graduate trainee teachers. I taught Year 9 History for 6 years, GCSE History for 6 years, AS-level History for 4 years, A-level History coursework for 3 years. I also taught International Baccalaureate History for a year. I completed a number of continuous professional development (CPD) courses such as implementing and marking A-level coursework, improving sixth form study skills, use of IT in the classroom (iPad apps). On top of this I was a resident throughout my time, in both Senior and Junior boys (assistant housemaster) boarding houses so have extensive knowledge and experience of working with 14-18 students. I was also a tutor (one-to-one) to 12 students throughout the 6 years which involved weekly meetings to ensure they maximised their potential in academic, sporting and pastoral arenas. I also regularly led revision and study skill sessions, particularly during the exam period. My other roles included being Head of Cross-country and Assistant Head of Athletics. I'm also currently in the process of becoming an exam assessor for OCR. This knowledge and experience, as well as my own GCSE and A-level qualifications, allows me to also provide reading, writing and study skills tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in learning and teaching, rather than teaching and learning. I also believe in assessing students learning styles in order to enable them to learn via methods and processes which they find easiest to understand. Content is obviously important but study skills should be incorporated at the same time. Learning should be enjoyable, memorable and interesting to the extent the student wishes to learn beyond the desire to simply pass exams. I am a huge fan of multi-faceted sessions incorporating visual, audio and kinaesthetic activities, and where possible will make use of IT to help in this regard.
