Personal Description:
I have an easygoing and pleasant demeanour, a nice sense of humour, and I generally get on well with my tutees. Although I like to have a friendly relationship with my tutee, I try to employ a professional manner at all times. I am a man in his early, middling years, who enjoys seeing others fulfil their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher, who has taught privately one to one for a number of years. I have primarily taught English on a one to one basis for tutees who are preparing for their GCSE and "A" level examinations, but I am also experienced in helping tutees improve their literacy skills from a young age. I also have a wealth of experience of teaching English as a Foreign language on a one to one basis. I have taught in a number of language schools over the years, and at one point started a language school in southern Italy. I have considerable experience teaching English up to "A" level standard in secondary education, and I have over fifteen years experience to draw upon.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one teaching, by its nature, is very intense, so it is very important to introduce variety as much as possible. A mixture of written work, as well as oral work, if required is essential to keep the tutee focused and interested in what you are teaching. It helps, sometimes, after an intense session, fot the tutee to have a short break, before continuing.

Personal Description:
I am a young professional with a strong background in volunteer mentoring with children and young people, as well as a solid academic resume. I was home educated (tutorial-based) through primary and secondary school, and went on to study English Literature and History at the University of Edinburgh.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working since June 2011 at Mackenzie School of English, teaching English as a second language to foreign high school students.

Also, I have been a private tutor since February 2011, working with a range of ages and levels in both English Literature and History.

As well as my professional experience, I have been involved in youth work, summer camps, and one-to-one mentoring of young people for the past eight years or so. Working at summer camps has given me experience in both group work - teaching and leading discussions - as well as in one-to-one mentoring. Currently I am involved in a weekly youth club here in Leith, working with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from the local community.

Tutoring Approach:

Coming from a rather unconventional educational background, I would bring with me a deep passion for the need to create a tailored and bespoke educational experience for each individual young person. I know how incredible my own learning experience has been, instilling within me a value and love of learning that will remain with me my whole life. I would approach tutoring with this same passion. Learning excites and challenges me, and I believe that it has become limited in the classroom at times. When a young person can see someone else passionate and excited about an aspect of knowledge and understanding, the ramifications are huge. Not only does tutoring provide an avenue for this one-to-one mentoring, but I believe it is also the most powerful method of teaching. It is in that bond of mutual regard and respect that true learning occurs. These passions and beliefs are foundational to my approach of tutoring and mentoring.

Personal Description:
I am a 2011 Politics Graduate at University of York. I'm applying for a PGCE to commence in August 2012 with the goal of becoming a secondary and sixth form teacher in History and Politics. Having had to work hard to achieve top grades I understand firsthand the difficulties and struggles that go on throughout both the GCSE and A-level processes. The pace is fast and often bewildering. Having spent time assisting in classrooms in York on a voluntary basis, I recognize that by communicating to smaller groups the immediate concentration amongst the otherwise chaotic classroom was instantaneous. I should hope the effects would be amplified on a one-to-one basis and real progress can be made through this time. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than being able to assist people in something so important in their lives. Throughout the year I will be increasing my experience within the educational sector with more classroom experience and continuing coaching the game I love, rugby, to the U12's.

So if your finding it difficult to make sense of things do not despair assistance is out there, more specifically here. I look forward to facing any challenges that there may be and I am confident that our time together will be most rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently employed by Yarm School and have to date completed two weeks as a History and Politics teacher. After the half-term I will continue this work as a Politics teacher, delivering classes to the Upper Sixth. The work has involved 5th and 6th form teaching, requiring me to resource, plan, deliver and assess a range of topics. The feedback was most positive, having been successful in a range of areas, from the delivery of lessons required to address a highly competent 'top end', to the preparation of pupil folders for an imminent inspection. I feel that I swiftly adapted to the many and varied demands of school life, including pastoral tutoring, record-keeping, parental contact requirements, departmental meetings, as well as co-leading extra-curricular excursions.

I have also spent several weeks shadowing lessons at York College (an independent Sixth-Form institution) and at Yarm School, a private secondary school in County Durham, whilst completing my degree. I have also delivered several presentations on behalf of a local charity, Justice First, to raise awareness on the plight of asylum seekers. This experience also involved classroom discussions with primary school children and sixth-form pupils on this issue.

Tutoring Approach:

I will require a sample of the tutee's work before the first session. Each session is adapted according to the needs and ability of the tutee. Sometimes this can call for livening up the subject material to make it more engaging. Other times this requires a clarity of thought through the confusion. I can be as patient or energetic as is required and I take it as my personal goal to find a way that best communicates to each individual. When it comes to exams it is a matter of knowing what the examiner is looking for and making sure you know how to demonstrate this adequately.

I look forward to assisting you through this time

James

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher in my 30s. I am friendly, patient and approachable and enjoy helping children with their learning. I am able to provide help with KS1 and KS2 English/Literacy (reading, writing, spelling or a combination of these), and KS1 and KS2 maths. I particularly work with children who find the subject difficult and would like a little extra help and children who have specific special educational needs. My specialist subject is history and am happy to provide support for this subject at primary level also. I do not tutor for school entrance exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in education for 10 years, as a class teacher in Years 3 and 5, a museum teacher and currently as a Year 5 and 6 teacher in a village school in the Forest of Dean. I have been home tutoring for three years. The children I have tutored have gained in confidence, improved their skills and moved up groups in school within months.

"We can't thank you enough for all the help and guidance you have given H during the time you have taught him." (Parent)

"Thank you for helping me get better at maths and litercay. Since you have been helping me I have moved up a set to a better class. I am pleased about this, as now I feel more confident." (Year 5 pupil)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning should be fun, active and relevant to the child's interests and needs. I tailor lessons to the child's abilities, learning styles and interests, and include suitable levels of challenge to help them progress. I believe praise and encouragement is conducive to success and in raising a child's confidence if they are struggling. I am used to working with a wide range of children who have different abilities and interests, and can quickly assess the level they are working at and tailor their learning to suit their needs and interests.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I love reading, writing and reading some more. I also enjoy sketching while listening to music. I am a frank person, have an straightforward approach to everything in life and like people to behave the same way with me (which always does not happen). I love to have a laugh, but don't worry, I can be serious when needed( for example, when teaching your children English and History).

Teaching Experience:

While I have never tutored for money, I have an extensive tutoring experience. I volunteered to teach illiterate students English as a part of a volunteering program from my high school in India and have been a part of that program for the past two years. I also used to tutor my two siblings in History, Geography and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that children learn best in a stress free environment. If they feel it is fun and challenging, they will be more willing to learn than if they feel it to be an obligation. English is an easy subject and children enjoy learning it, once they realize the joys that English has to offer. History can be challenging due to the vast amounts one has to learn by heart but steady habit of writing down answers to questions helps more than reading the material ten times. Other than that, History is a vastly interesting subject which helps us understand the workings of the present society and of course, knowledge about our ancestors. Geography is relatively straightforward subject. A lot of practice and a dedicated perusal of it should be enough to get good scores. While it can be relatively dry, it can be made interesting with pictures and videos.I focus on exam technique, past papers as well as text work (English Lit.)

Qualifications:
I scored 91 out of 100 in English in the Indian equivalent to A-levels of U.K and got accepted to The University Of Edinburgh based on this mark.
In History and Geography I got 85 out of 100 in the same exam.

Personal Description:
I am currently a student at the University of Cambridge where I am studying for a PGCE in Secondary History.

I have previously worked as a teacher of English as Foreign Language for 2 years, and also have a MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
I am well suited to providing a strategic and effective approach to both general learning as well as more specific exam and revision techniques.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as an English Language teacher for two years. During my PGCE studies, I have worked full time in secondary schools teaching Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level classes. I have also taught one-to-one classes for ESL students as well as for students in secondary education.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely flexible and can alter my tutoring style to the needs of each individual student. Whether you wish to concentrate on the syllabus or examination technique we can work together to create a programme that is both enjoyable and successful in releasing your full potential.

Personal Description:
I am a keen, enthusiastic and passionate tutor who has just completed a Masters' degree and a Geography degree, both from Oxford University. I am about to complete the GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) at BPP, London (Waterloo). I have demonstrated sustained academic success since the age of 13 when I won two scholarships to Westminster School (Queen's Scholarship) and Haberdashers' Aske's, Elstree (Top Scholarship).

My subsequent qualifications are outlined below:

12 A* GCSEs (incl. full marks in English Language and Literature),

4 "A"A-Level Grades August 2009 in Mathematics (MEI), Geography, History and Biology also at Westminster School.

Highly Commended Prize Essays on 'Global Warming: An Inconvenient Truth or Convenient Untruth?' and 'Biofuels should no longer be considered as a weapon against climate change.'

BA (Hons.) Geography at Jesus College, Oxford 2009-2012.
First (Distinction) achieved in Prelim University 1st Year Exams, July 2010
Academic Scholarship Awarded for 2010-2012

MSc. Criminology & Criminal Justice: Green Templeton College, University Oxford, 2012-2013

Teaching Experience:

Very experienced tutor; over 140 hours of tutoring experience from 11+ to university interview preparation. I am a top tier tutor at other agencies.

My last four tutees have attained the highest academic achievements:
One gained a place reading Land Economy at Cambridge University,
ALL three of my 13+ candidates received places at EVERY one of the schools they applied for. Two of these three even achieved academic scholarships.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe there are a number of key principles to tutoring.
1) RAPPORT - each tutee is different and it is important not to have a set formula when working with each student, or even for each class. In my opinion, there should be an emphasis on identifying the needs of the student and working towards these goals.
2) TARGETS - what are we working towards, how we can get there and isolating areas for improvement.
3) PRACTICE - regular testing, from past papers to 4) GENERAL EXAM TECHNIQUE.

Employing these four principles as a foundation, tutoring can be productive and enjoyable and I have a number of testimonies to illustrate this point. For instance, last summer, I worked with an A-Level Geography candidate who was able to get their grade from an E at AS Level to an overall high B grade for their entire A Level.

I have experience working will all ages with different weaknesses, strengths and abilities. This has made me completely adaptable to all kinds of people and needs.
2013 - 100% pass rate with GCSE and A Levels.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring depends on the needs and goals of the tutee. You will receive workbooks, worksheets and exercise books which will have our goals, comments and plans in them. We will plan each session and work towards our goals. Lessons are on a one to one basis and last an hour. We will use workbooks, worksheets and interactive computer games. Lessons will be fun, exciting and useful. Parents will be briefed at the end of the session and kept up to date with all progress. All exercise books are supplied.

Personal Description:
I am an Italian native speaker currently reading for a doctorate in Japanese studies at the University of Oxford. Other than my native language, I can tutor in Japanese (10 years of studying plus highest proficiency certificate), German (12 years), French (4 years) Latin and ancient Greek (5 years respectively).

Given my different background in European as well as in Oriental studies, I am also available to tutor in a wide range of humanistic subjects, from history (western and eastern, classic and contemporary) to literature (English, American, italian, Japanese, German, French and classics). Furthermore, having been a university student, and an aspiring writer for a long time now, I am able to give advice and tutor in writing for school and university, as well as in general structure and grammar, both in English and in the above languages.

Apart from academics, my interests are cinema, books, comics, comedy, drawing, painting and sports. If you share my interests, or have other, it will be fun to talk about them in our classes.

Teaching Experience:

In the academic year 2011-2012, I taught and tutored in Italian at Smith College, Massachusetts, to advanced students and first-years. I tailored the lessons to the students' specific needs and any questions they might have. I also organised conversation groups with the first-years as well as introducing specific aspects of Italian culture, such as songs, food, and historical representations.

At Smith, I was responsible for privately tutoring Professor Susan Etheredge generally in the Italian language, as well as assisting her with written formal reports she would need for academic presentations in front of an Italian audience.

I have taught a variety of languages in different countries and settings. I have privately taught Italian, English and Japanese from 2003 to high-school and university students, and people with casual interest and different levels of knowledge.

I also tutor and give advice in academic writing and professional writing to university students in English and Italian.

Tutoring Approach:

Languages are multi-faceted living things that evolve constantly. That is why, in my lessons, I want to be as flexible and tailor the approach to the tutee's needs. Given that grammar is a fundamental aspect of the language, I would like to present it not as a boring, monolithic block that needs to be remembered mechanically, but instead as a tool with which a person can say in another language whatever he says in his/her own native one. We can tell the same English jokes in Italian, and talk about our favourite German book in Japanese. The language is out there for us to use it.

I would craft my lessons so to give students a solid background in the structure and grammar of the language (or history, literature, etc.) and then move on to the tutee's field of interest to expand vocabulary and mastery of the structure. That is because I believe that it is easier, and more fun, to learn about the things we like, rather than being stuck with sources that do not awaken our interest.

Also, since any language is the mirror of a people, it will be interesting to integrate the lessons with news and discussions about the cultural aspects (movies, music, history, food, sports and the like) that are expressed in that particular language.

Personal Description:
I am a Spanish postgraduate student doing a MSc in Paleobiology at the University of Bristol, where I currently live. I mainly have anl academic background in Biology (BSc in Biology + MSci in Evolutionary Biology) and I am now expanding my studies in the field. Hopefully I will starting my PhD studies the next Autumn Term.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 5 years of experience as a private tutor both for Spanish and English students of all ages (from 7 to 30). However, most of them of them were in their teens and first years of University. I have managed also in a satisfactory way tutoring with students with special learning needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe in a relaxed and pleasant teaching environment as the process of learning is controlled in an essential proportion by motivation and emotional mood. Additionally, I am really keen in Science, and in particular actually passionate about Biology. Therefore, as I have also good communicative skills, I feel I can transmit this passion to my students.

Lately, I have become really keen on languages as I am basically living a daily cultural interchange in UK. As a native speaker of Spanish, I could teach the language in a thorough way and virtually managed any level the student may have.

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:
I am Philosophy Graduate with a passion for ideas and critical thinking. I have written articles for a variety of blogs and delivered lectures to an academic audience.

In the past I have also worked in as a freelance musician and an IT technician.

Everything I do is influenced by my passion for ideas and my desire to convey them to others, a conscientious work ethic and lively sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first foray into academic tutoring, I have previously taught Judo at senior and junior levels. In addition, I have been responsible for helping people improve their IT skills when I worked for The Department For Work and Pensions.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to meet every individual where they are in their journey of learning, rather than impose preconceived ideas on them. I try and find out how each student learns and in light of this tailor my teaching to fit them.

I always try to keep things fun and interesting as people achieve more when they are engaged an excited. I avoid pointless jargon and needless technicality.

I am currently a third year student at the University of Nottingham studying English and Classical Civilization, and I attended the Latymer Grammar School in North London.

GCSEs:
7A*s (English Lit, English Lang, Maths, Latin, French, History, Media)
2As (Core Science and Additional Science)

AS Levels
2As (English Lit and Philosophy and Ethics)
2Bs (Latin and History)

A Levels

I currently have few contact hours at university and so I'm looking to fill my time with a job that I would find rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

One weeks' work experience as a Teaching Assistant in a nursery (2011)
I was tutored during primary school and I found the experience so helpful and rewarding, which makes me want to pass this on and help others.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm a friendly sociable person and would like to apply these aspects of my personality to my role as a tutor. Previously I have worked in a tea room, a pub and a restaurant/bar, so I believe I would be able to apply knowledge learnt from these roles. For example I am good at working under pressure with time constraints, and I am also very organised and reliable. I believe that to be a successful tutor, the pupil needs to be in a comfortable and relaxed environment without the pressure they may experience in the classroom. I would encourage my pupil to speak up if there is something they are unsure of and praise them for good work, therefore encouraging their continued participation.

Personal Description:
I am originally Russian but have been in England since I was 6 and so have completed all my formal schooling in the UK. I attended a selective state grammar school between the ages of 11-18 and so have experience of 11+ entrance exams - having sat them and also helped others subsequently.
Currently, I am undertaking the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) having graduated from Oxford University with a BA in Jurisprudence (Law).

In the course of my studies I have also won a number of academic/vocational awards:
- Pinsent Masons Prize for best performance in Taxation Law finals paper, 2014
- Lord Denning Scholarship for the BPTC, Lincoln's Inn, 2014
- Winner of Nottingham v Oxford University Varsity Moot 2013
- Winner of the St Hilda's Mooting Competition 2012
- Distinction in Law Moderations (first Public Exams) in 2012 and awarded Simmons & Simmons prize for highest results in University College, Oxford
- Winner of the University College Freshers' Moot 2011
- Top 10 of 1,922 in GCSE Russian (2009)

Teaching Experience:

- Taught Latin at a primary school in Reading for two years (students between the ages of 8-11)
- Chosen by tutors at University as a "Study Buddy" for Law, which entailed providing guidance for the new undergraduates on essay writing, revision, exam technique, and mooting
- Was employed as a Law Mentor for the UNIQ Summer School, run by Oxford University
- I have also assisted a number of UNIQ students with personal statements for UCAS applications

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly but focused tutoring style and I seek to develop the student's confidence over time to work independently. My primary focus is to establish the specific level at which the student is currently working and identify any areas where the student is struggling in order to adapt the session to their specific needs. I then seek to tackle those problem areas whilst making sure the basic concepts are clear in the student's mind.

I feel strongly that students should not see exams merely as tests of memory and so aim to teach them the skills necessary for answering any question or problem that they may be faced with in the relevant subject.
