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 27 year old PhD student at Newcastle University, having completed my MA in Ancient History (Classics Department) at Royal Holloway University of London (2009), and my BA in the same subject.

In my younger years, I lived in Taiwan, my father having worked there, before returning to the UK in 2000. We lived in a British and American expatriate community and I went to school at the Taipei American School.

I am passionate about learning and education, especially in the areas of Classics, History and English (primarily as a second language); it is a joy to be able to impart the same pleasure of these subjects on others and see a students' progression and development.

Teaching Experience:

Currently tutoring GSCE Latin for an examination in June 2015, and have tutored numerous students in all aspects of English - including preparation for QTS assessments, IELTS, business language and academic writing.

I returned from China in August 2012 where I gained a TEFL qualification and taught English as a Foreign Language for a year. During the first half of the year, I taught at a public primary school in Zhejiang province, and during the second, at Aston English School, a training school for students ranging from Kindergarten to Adult.

Prior to my time in China, I tutored a mature student in Latin using the Cambridge Latin course and helped out in the Learning Department of Norwich Castle in Norfolk; I have been consequently CRB checked. During my MA, I coached a Chinese student on her English conversation and grammar. This included weekly sessions exploring cultural and academic topics, frequently involving her dissertation and other areas in her studies. We also attended an event showcasing Chinese culture where we compared and discussed various aspects.

I also helped review, edit and advise numerous undergraduates individually on their dissertations and essays in the Classics Department, and an A level student on his History coursework. April 2009, I also took work experience at Queen Anne's School in Caversham, covering the subjects Classical Civilisation, Latin, Ancient Greek, History and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a flexible and fun approach towards teaching, centering on the students needs and engaging interest and learning through games and activities.

I can help with vocabulary, analysis, essay-writing, language learning, research skills and examination techniques and am happy to assist with any requirements or problems students may have.

Personal Description:
Please note that due to very high demand, as of October 2013 I am offering essay/coursework improvement tutoring only. As such, I can only accept short-term requests for essay and coursework coaching, and not longer-term subject tutoring. Thanks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I specialise in essay construction and clear writing styles that achieve good results in exams and essays. Whatever your subject, if it involves any form of written expression, I can help you!

I have lots of experience working successfully with students who need to raise their grades, and with those who just struggle with putting what they know down onto paper. I have worked in education for a number of years, and understand what examiners look for and expect when it comes to exams, essays and coursework.

My most recent success story resulted in a piece of English A Level coursework increasing from a preliminary C grade to a final A grade after just 2 hours of coaching the student.

My first degree is a BA in English from Birmingham University. My Masters degree and further research is in education. I also achieved A grades in my History and English A Levels.

I have a great deal of real-world experience when it comes to self-expression and communication which enables me to help students to be much more than just mechanical exam-passers! This is particularly useful for students looking to move up to higher education.

My prices can be negotiated depending on the help you need, the time I dedicate to you, and your situation. Please don't hesitate to get in touch!

In terms of security and your safety- I have up-to-date, enhanced CRB status - a copy of which I can provide upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching in UK school classrooms to A Level and GCSE standard. I have experience of PGCE theory and teaching skills.

I have been tutoring privately for over 2 years.

I am also a qualified TEFL instructor (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

I am a trainer in my workplace, and a good communicator who understands different methods of teaching and learning.

I am a trusted and reliable proofreader and editor, and am happy to proof and edit personal statements and other texts on request.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is all about you. I will tailor my tutoring to your needs, likes and dislikes. Improving your skills comes first- as such, every time I tutor, I create a scheme of work specifically suited to the student.

I can travel to you for tutoring, but would expect to be reimbursed for this. I can host you for tutoring sessions if required.

I am more than happy to proof-read and feedback to a professional standard on your essays and work.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Imogen and I'm 20 years old. I am a second year undergraduate student at the University of Kent, studying French, with modules in International History and beginners German during my first year. I previously studied the International Baccalaureate instead of A Levels and whilst doing this tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French - she went from a C to an A with just simple tutoring of the basics. My final grades for my first year included French grammar grade being a 72 (1st) and all other modules receiving above 62, with a 70 in International History and International Relations.
Last year (April 2013), I spent two weeks in Paris for work experience with a French company, improving my French by being surrounded by solely French speakers! I returned to Paris for 2 months over the summer to work for another French company, living and working in the French language which has greatly improved my understanding of reading and listening to French and I've become much more accustomed to speaking in French primarily too.
I believe that I have a friendly approach to tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned, I tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French. Over the 9 month period, we improved on her basic grammar skills and reading and listening skills also. As well as this, I have helped (not necessarily tutored, but essentially, tutored) several friends at different subjects that we both studied, particularly GCSE History and IB Biology Standard. I have a brother who sat his GCSEs in June 2013 and as most of our subjects were the same, I tutored him and tested him often in the subjects that I took at IB. From this site, which I joined in December 2012, I gained one student very quickly and during our 4 months tutoring sessions, she improved her basic understanding tremendously, progressing from a D to a B for her oral exam in April.

Tutoring Approach:

In terms of my approach to tutoring, I like to assess what the tutee finds difficult and try and work in a different way to how they are accustomed to to see if it helps at all. I draw a lot from my experiences as a student as I have found the ways in which I have been taught very easy to understand. I would like to say that my approach is a lot more suited to children because, like them, I am a student too and I understand what they are coping with and how their mind works. Listening is of key importance and I make sure that I listen to what my tutee is trying to say.

PLEASE NOTE: Although I tutor GCSE History, I would like to specify that it would just be for the Germany option.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 2nd year Politics student at the University of York and would love to use my educational experience to help other young people. After 's Catholic Secondary School I achieved 3 A*s, 7 As and 3 Bs in my GCSEs and then went on to achieve 3 A*s and an A in my A levels (including General Studies) at Peter Symonds College, Winchester. The A*s were achieved in Government and Politics and English Literature, but I was also very passionate about Classical Civilisations (the A) during my time at college and would love to teach in that area. Unfortunately there was not an option for this, so History tuition would actually mean Class Civ.

Teaching Experience:

While I have no former teaching experience, I am very good at working with people younger than me, having volunteered at various church groups. I would be willing to offer one free session in order to prove my teaching ability before you commit to me as a tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would aim to teach in a casual learning environment where my pupil saw me as an equal to them in order to create an atmosphere that is both productive, but also confidence and self-esteem building. I would urge any pupil to apply their own knowledge to the question so that they might challenge the limits of their own knowledge, and then assist through skills building exercises. I think that when you break subjects down, their solutions can become apparent, and essay-writing subjects can be tackled through basic exercises and formulae similarly to STEM subjects.

Personal Description:
Positive, encouraging, warm and friendly. I graduated from the University of St Andrews in 2011 with an MA(Hons) in English Literature, and am currently undertaking a PGDE in Secondary English Teaching at the University of Strathclyde. I can assure you that whether you are studying William Shakespeare or Irvine Welsh, I can help. From experience, I also know that how much you enjoy the literature in question can have a big impact on how well you write essays or reports on it. I have a passion for literature and know there is always something good to be taken from any book, so hopefully through my tutoring, you'll catch the bug too. From critical readings, to deciphering poetry, to writing your own creative pieces, I've done them all from school through to University, and have no doubt I can guide you to a new-found confidence in your English Literature studies. Having studied Mediaeval, Scottish and Modern History at Junior Honours Level, I can also assist with school level British and European History studies. I am a qualified EFL Teacher, so if you're looking for help developing your English skills, look no further.

Teaching Experience:

EFL Teacher, Adults and Teenagers. Teaching exam based classes, I taught pupils aged 14 and upwards the skills, language and confidence necessary to sit internationally recognised Cambridge ESOL examinations. My teaching role varied from providing one-to-one tutoring for adults wishing to improve their English, to planning and delivering structured, informative lessons for classes of teenagers as part of their curriculum. I am delighted to be able to report that my students' earned not only pass marks in their exams, but were thrilled to attain high grades.

Kindergarten EFL Teacher. In this role I taught classes of thirty students the basics of the English language, using lesson plans and worksheets I developed myself. With a creative and enjoyable approach to teaching, I noticed considerable improvements in the English skills of my students, and am pleased to say my pupils consistently enjoyed my lessons and my warm, constructive teaching style.

Volunteer EFL Tutor. A one-on-one role teaching beginner's English, I tailored my lessons specifically to my pupil's needs at all times, discovering their areas of strength and which methods suited them best, and also working on weaker areas, finding ways to improve these through diverting activities and positive re-enforcement.

Volunteer Leader in ASN Performance Classes. In this role I helped teach children and adults with additional support needs singing, dancing and acting. I assisted either individuals or small groups in developing ideas for dramatic scenes, learning how best to work with each person, adapting scenes to both their preferences and what would help develop their confidence and independence.

I can also expertly proof-read your work, having previously proof-read dissertations, websites and CVs with skill, helping you produce a polished essay.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in structuring encouraging, independent learning environments, helping to draw out your own ideas and discussing them together to achieve an interesting and concise argument for you to work on. I apply constructive criticism with tact and guidance, asking appropriate questions about your theories to allow you to think them through with consideration and depth. I will not tell you what you should write: I will facilitate you, guide you, act as a sounding board for your ideas, and explain any gnarly linguistic or theoretical queries you may have. Be assured that I will come prepared to each lesson, whether online or in person, ready with resources I think would assist you, and with a sound knowledge of the text in question. Above all, I will be dedicated to helping you improve your understanding of the topic; the quality of your written work; and, hopefully, your enjoyment of reading and studying texts.

Personal Description:
Hey, My name is Jennifer, and I'm currently a student studying history at university!
My strength is history. Naturally, I'm very interested in medieval history, & Tudor history. I have studied myself a wide range of historical subjects. Which include: the Russian revolution, the French revolution, the Scottish wars of independence, and how to research history: using both primary sources, and secondary sources.

I have also studied sociology. The areas which I've studied in sociology has been: the family, social stratification (class), gender, and the media. I also have a strong interest in sociology. Theorists I have covered include; Marx, Webber, and feminism.

Philosophy, along with history, is another subject which I am passionate about. I've studied philosophy for three years in total:one year at college, and two years at university. Philosophy is a subject which focuses on any, and every area, therefore, there is something for everyone to take an interest in philosophy! Philosophy has been extremely useful to me for all areas of my academic life. It has taught me; how to think, and how to construct an excellent argument. My personal favorite subjects in philosophy are: moral philosophy, and political philosophy.

My last subject, but, by no means least! Is politics. I have studied politics subjects for two and a half years. This has covered areas such as; the Uk government and Parliament, totalitarianism, democracy, the 1940s welfare state, and Machiavelli and Hobbes.

Teaching Experience:

Being a current student I have no teaching experience. However, as a student myself, I know what the pressures of studying feels like, how to study effectively, and I also know how stressful studying can be, therefore I am patient, and extremley understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a laid back attitude. Not lazy however!
Students need to pace themselves, and not stress out.
I am naturally compassionate and caring.

I can get back to any student inquires within a 24 hour period.

Personal Description:
I have just finished my A Levels in South London, where I was studying English Literature, History, Government and Politics and Critical Thinking.
I am now a student at the University of Birmingham studying for a BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences, hoping to major in politics.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked for the past year and a half at an Number Works 'n' Words where I tutored English and Maths to small groups of children, including those preparing to sit school entrance exams. Each group had children of various ages and abilities. I was responsible not only for the tutoring of each child, but planning future work and activities for each.

Tutoring Approach:

Each child would get their own plan of work depending on their particular circumstances, e.g. raising confidence, analysis of text, word problems etc. Using my previous experience as a tutor, I can create worksheets and activities that would target a particular goal for that child.
For GCSE English students in particular, I try to engage directly with their course, using the books they are studying at school in order to cement and extend their understanding of the themes and techniques required for the exam.

Personal Description:
I am a first year student at Kings College London studying BA English Language and Communications. I studied English Language, English Literature and History at A-Level and have been an avid reader and writer from a very young age. At age 12 I had a poem published in a young authors poetry collection called 'Forever Spoken'. I am passionate about these subjects and feel that I could make a valuable contribution to the education of primary/11-14/GCSE students.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst studying my A-levels I worked as a literacy aid for GCSE students who struggled with their English reading/writing/comprehension. This involved reading with the students once a week in order to test their reading and comprehension skills as well as testing them on grammar, punctuation, lexis and semantics.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring would be to come to an understanding with the student as to which areas they feel need the most work. I would then create a targeted plan on a timescale, breaking up the areas into modules in order to focus on each individual issue. From my experience as a literacy aid I have found that sometimes students just have to approach a subject they struggle with from a different angle, or use a different thought process. I would also set the student assignments each week to make sure that they are going back and revising the topics. I believe it is important to teach languages in a fun way to capture the student's attention, therefore I try to incorporate interactive activities/games into my lessons to keep the children's minds active and interested.

Personal Description:
My name is Oliver and I am a 22-year-old student at the University of Warwick, where I study German & History joint honours. I have recently returned from my year abroad in Germany, where I studied not only German language and literature, but also history and French language at the Humboldt University in Berlin. I would describe myself as enthusiastic and friendly.

Teaching Experience:

Between January and June 2012 I volunteered through Warwick Volunteers at a school in Coventry, where I acted as a teaching assistant in a Year 8 French class. I furthermore tutored a then first-year student at the University of Warwick during this time period. She was interested in improving her German language from GCSE-level and so we met for an hour every week in the university library. During the lessons we not only focused on grammar, but also on texts which I provided to widen vocabulary and to understand sentence structure in a real context.

Tutoring Approach:

For me it is important that the tutoring can either be as relaxed or as focused as the student wants it to be. We all have our own individual ways of learning and retaining information, so it is key to understand best how the student learns when approaching a topic. It is also good when students think for themselves, rather than simply soaking up information, and so I tend to encourage this kind of self-sufficiency in learning. I encourage debate and get students to justifying their reasoning and thought, skills which are not only useful for the future but also are more engaging for students.

Personal Description:
Currently a final year student at Queen Mary, University of London, I have in-depth knowledge in History and Politics. Recently, I have taken a year out to the US to extend my knowledge in American History and Politics. Having studied both these subjects for my A levels, I know what students are going through and what they should expect in an exam. I am also fluent in Cantonese and able to write and read in traditional Chinese.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is largely based on informal tutoring in the form of discussion with younger students. Although I have never taught formally in a classroom before, I believe this should not hinder, but rather, enhance my ability to interact with students, especially when it comes to one-on-one tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to base my tutoring around discussion with the student. I believe allowing the student to wrestle with difficult ideas and understanding them is better than spoon-feeding information. I also think sample essays, resources from beyond the curriculum would be a great help, so that would be a big part of my tuition approach as well.


Subjects
  • Politics
  • A-Level or Highers (20 p.h.)

  • GCSE or Standards (15 p.h.)
  • History

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.

Personal Description:
A motivated, adaptable and responsible London Metropolitan University Film graduate seeking an entry-level position in film production which will utilise the organisational and communication skills developed through my involvement with field work during production projects with the Art Party Conference, Hitachi, Royal Academy of Arts and Samosa. However, firstly I want to enter a gap year and improve my skills in retail and sales, whilst gaining lots of in field experience working on several film sets and studio as a freelance. I am an individual with passion, drive and excellent communication and sociable skills. I am passionate, calm, and collective and try my best in all that I do. I coach young kids ranging from ages 4 to 14 and would like to get more involved in teaching kids education too. I also do photography freelance.

Teaching Experience:

As a Rugby coach of London Skolars Rugby League club, I help coach around 30 children every week in the club or in schools where I lay out fun coaching drills for the kids to enjoy for two hours. I always assist in organising the forms and documents and that parents must fill out. With more experience, I plan to coach more senior players in the future. I am currently getting work in a primary school to help tutor a classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves. My experience has been that one-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students' personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don't lecture to students or ask them to memorise things. Nor do I do the students' homework for them!
I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs.
I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.
