Personal Description:
I am a History graduate with both Bachelors and Masters Degrees. For my first degree in History I received 1st Class Honours and have completed a Masters in Imperial and Commonwealth History at King's College London with Merit. I am an aspiring history lecturer, who is currently researching a PhD, with a passion for teaching and learning. My abilities as a writer have been consistently commented upon by many lecturers and colleagues. I am enthusiastic, reliable and friendly.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years teaching experience, having started as both a private tutor and teacher at a summer school in 2010. I have covered a large range of exam boards and periods at both GCSE and A-Level.

Tutoring Approach:

Above all I hope to impart my own passion for history to my students. History must be insightful and relevant and it must enlighten the student to the nature of human society. Thus I do more than simply teach to exam.

However, I have a strong knowledge of the current curriculum at GCSE and A-Level, understand what is required by both exam boards and universities and I am adept at teaching exam technique. Lessons will focus on personal discovery as much as imparting knowledge and technique. The enhancement of the written and verbal skills needed to convey ideas and create an argument are central to my teaching.

Personal Description:
I am a fairly recent (but mature) graduate who is hugely enthusiastic about learning. For fun I like to dress up as a Tudor and take part in Living History events. I also very much like to take my slightly dopey dog to the beach where I regularly need to prevent her swimming to France!

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of teaching was through home-educating my daughter from when she was 6 through to GSCE-level. I then went on to do a PGCE in Lifelong Learning (post-16 education) during which time I taught a range of business and tourism modules. Since completing my PGCE I have completed short-term contracts teaching English as a Foreign Language. Presently, I work part-time as an enabler for physically and/ or mentally disabled students in higher education and part-time as a private tutor.I have experience tutoring adult learners, home-educated students (i.e. delivery of full syllabus) and students who are at school but need additional subject help, for example with exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand how important it is to have a supportive and patient teacher who is willing to answer any question any number of times until the student 'gets it' and that's what I am always prepared to do. I think learning should be fun and relevant to our lives and endeavour to carry this over into lessons. The exact approach would always depend on the needs and wishes of the student.

Personal Description:
I am a 43 year old father of four children, the oldest having just entered University. As a father of four I have a lot of experience in knowing how to motivate children and how to develop the necessary skills they need to either pass exams or for enhancing life skills. I live on the edge of the South Downs in a small cottage with all my family, a dog, two cats and several chickens.

Teaching Experience:

I came into teaching as a mature student after spending 15 years in the catering and wholesale business. My first training came with the Sussex Wildlife trust where helped run the outdoor field sessions for pupils from year 1 to A level studies. I then trained on the GTP course at schools in Brighton and then Burgess Hill before working at Ringmer Community College as Head of Geography. For the last 5 years I have been Head of Humanities at a private school in Kent, where I have been teaching GCSE Philosophy, Geography & History and A Level Philosophy and Geography. In the past I have also taught both English and Maths to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an open approach to tutoring and emphasise self learning and confidence building with the student being the focus and seeing how they want to develop their own skills. I will discuss, motivate and lead a student to query the topics we look at and then work with them to develop their exam skills.

Personal Description:
I am 29 years old and have been teaching A level and GCSE English and history at sixth form college for seven years, in which time my results have far surpassed national pass rates. Moreover, due to these outstanding pass rates and innovative teaching methods, my English department has been awarded a grade 1 'Outstanding' for the past 4 years. I have a passion for English and history, and take great pride in providing an excellent education to all of my students, seeing it as crucial to success in their later careers.

Teaching Experience:

I have a broad range of experience turning around failing classes, as well as challenging high achieving students. In my teaching career thus far I have taught a wide age range from 9-18 years, and specialise in teaching troubled students and those lacking confidence, as well as pushing very bright pupils. Since I began teaching at my institution, English pass-rates have received a 25% upwards leap in two years, so that the vast majority of my classes are now passing with high academic grades and attaining entry to prestigious preparatory schools and/or universities. With these excellent results I have now been made an advanced teaching practitioner, tasked with passing on my skills to other teachers and helping drive up standards

Tutoring Approach:

Besides enjoying superb results, my pupils benefit from a relaxed yet challenging atmosphere, with high commitment being expected of them and this has shown to bring both personal and academic growth, which is always pleasing to see. Moreover, in strengthening self-esteem and exciting the minds of my students, to provide them with the skills they need to excel in later life, I seek to provide them with only the finest education possible.

Personal Description:
I am a 22 year old graduate with a first class degree in History from the University of Oxford, and I am looking to tutor GCSE and A-Level students, and offer assistance with exam technique as well as subject content.

During my degree I achieved a first class grade in preliminary and final examinations, and I won the Oriel Society Arts Prize for outstanding achievement in first year. I received Oriel college scholarships in my second and third year based on the previous year's work, and also recently received the Shannon Prize for outstanding achievement across my three year degree.

I received very high marks at History A-Level, and 100% in my English Literature exams.

Having been through the Oxbridge entrance examination and interview process, and coming from state school education, I can advise and provide mock interviews for any student considering applying to Oxford or Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I gained classroom experience in April 2013, taking a year 13 English Literature class who were preparing for their A-Level exam on Andrew Marvell. I was invited back in September 2013 to give the same presentation to this year's students.

I took part in the Mold Alun paired reading scheme, spending time each day to improve the reading of younger students.

I have helped history applicants to Oxford and Cambridge with mock interviews and advice in 2011 and 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

My priority is to make the subject content engaging and genuinely interesting - a fact or quotation that means something to a student will be much more easily remembered during the exam.

Tutorial sessions will be structured and all relevant content covered, but they will not take the form of a lecture. I encourage students to talk through their own ideas and let their feelings be known. From recent experiences in sixth form and university, the classes with dialogue between tutor and students were always the most enjoyable and most successful.

English: I like to introduce a new piece of writing in each session to prepare the GCSE student for the unseen part of the exam. For A-Level, I encourage the student to make brief comparative remarks between the set text and another work by the same author, which greatly impresses the examiner.

History: As well as covering the content, I like to give the student exam technique and essay writing practice in order that knowledge and facts can be used to full effect alongside general skills of analysis and understanding, which are required for dealing with primary sources.

Politics: I encourage using recent news stories as examples in essays, as these help to make theoretical concepts recognisable and easier to relate to. Showing an up to date knowledge of politics is also impressive to the examiner.

Personal Description:
I hold a BA hons in History and Masters degree (distinction) in History and Politics from the University of Exeter. I was graded outstanding for my PGCE in Secondary History. I continued this onto Masters Level, completing my MEd last year.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a selective boys grammar school in Devon, where I worked in a thriving History and Politics department (ranked among the top 10 of History and Politics departments nationally according to GCSE and A Level exam results). I am now teaching History and Politics to A Level at The King's School in Chester, and the department achieves an exceptional number of A*/A grades at GCSE, AS and A level. I am experienced in various examination boards for both subjects including Edexcel, AQA and Cambridge IGCSE. I have taught a range of exam modules, from Henry VIII; Crime and Punishment; the Modern World; 20th Century America: Vietnam War; 20th Century Germany; The Cold War. I have also worked as an Edexcel and OCR examiner for the last five years (marking GCSE and A Level papers) and am well versed in exam technique. I am able to offer an insight into what examiners are looking for in GCSE, AS and A2 exam responses. I am familiar with the courses offered at GCSE and AS at various secondary schools in Chester and the surrounding area and have tutored students from Abbeygate and Queens this year.

Tutoring Approach:

I work to instill a genuine enthusiasm for History and Politics, as well as developing a sound understanding of the topics covered during tutoring. I use and prepare engaging resources as well as a diverse range of teaching methods, which enable students to learn both the content and the skills needed to succeed in their examinations. It is my belief that tutoring sessions should not just involve the regurgitation of facts on the part of the student; rather, it should empower students with the confidence and knowledge they need to secure the grades they're capable of.

I tailor my sessions to best fit the needs of the students; whether that is through honing exam technique, or gaining an in depth understanding of the course content. I am able to target my sessions to suit all levels of ability.

Personal Description:
I am currently a first year student at the University of Bedfordshire, studying Sport's Management, with a keen interest specifically in Sports Development.

Throughout my prior educational years I have had a strong passion for both Physical Education and History, and was able to learn a great deal under some fantastic teaching methods. Whilst in Primary School i was enrolled with a tutor and found the experience valuable and gave me a step ahead when taking exams.

Teaching Experience:

Although no current teaching experience, I have realised that eventually I would like to go into a full time teaching role, and with my previous experience would find an opportunity of tutoring and teaching extremely rewarding.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is that learning can be very easy given the correct manner in which taught.

I would be willing to listen to pupils and parents and engage in where they feel they need to improve as well as teaching the curriculum required to have a good understanding and knowledge of the subject in hand.

I would make the learning of the subject interesting but also with a proffesional approach allowing the pupil to deliver and fulfil there maximum potential.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed a Master's degree at Oxford University in Women's Studies, focussing on Classical Greek history. Prior to that I completed a Bachelor's degree in Ancient History at Bristol University where I came third in my year.

My main strengths lie in English and History where I was top of my year at school for both AS and A level and for this achievement won the Sixth Form Academic Prize. I undertook entrance exams for The King's School, Canterbury and I believe that I would be very capable of giving students the rigorous academic training necessary to pass such exams.

As well as my academic achievements I enjoy ballet and singing and was a Senior News Reporter for the Bristol University Student Newspaper. While at Oxford University I used my skills of organisation and administration to start up a Gender Discussion Society at Oriel College which has been hugely successful.

Teaching Experience:

I have a wealth of experience as a private tutor to children mainly in English and reading and writing skills. During my time as a tutor I coached two 11 year olds in an English writing competition and both got through to the final round with one child eventually going on to win the competition. Furthermore, a number of the children I taught who are native Chinese speakers went on to get places at prestigious schools in the UK.

My abilities in English, History and Religious Studies mean that I am very capable of tutoring children and young people in these subjects in order to provide them with the tools to succeed in examinations from 11+ to A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure that I interact with each individual child in a way that is both engaging and interesting, making difficult and often monotonous topics more lively. My own deep passion for the subjects I teach creates a constructive atmosphere where children can get excited about their learning experience.

Modern examinations, particularly in history, are not designed to force children to learn lists of information but rather encourages children to analyse and consider academic topics in a critical manner. Helping to mould the mind of a young person to effectively approach examination questions is my fundamental approach to tutoring. I will enable my tutees to have the confidence and capability to excel and will ensure that they thoroughly enjoy learning.

Personal Description:
I'm currently a PhD student at the University of Warwick, studying theatre. I have a wide range of knowledge on history, geography, literature, theatre and drama, and film. I am engaging, but laid back and happy to work with the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught workshops and seminars at the university level.

Personal Description:
A first-class Cambridge University graduate with experience of tutoring in a variety of subjects - from undergraduate and A-level English literature, to GCSE maths - and a year's experience of teaching English as a foreign language in France, both in the classroom and in one-to-one sessions. I am outgoing and organised, and capable of communicating ideas in an interesting and engaging way to all age-groups.

My career is in book publishing and so am well-read and have access to lots of interesting books and teaching materials. I also have a keen eye for grammar and am good at working out how students can improve their writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching very young children through play, crafts and simple tasks - and of teaching children who speak little or no English. I also have experience of teaching complex material to advanced and capable students. I am comfortable teaching a variety of subjects, though specialise in English literature and in essay-writing advice.

I am happy to mark essays, set and mark mock examines, assist with university applications and exam prep, and give practise interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the best teachers engage their pupils by communicating their passion for the subject. I aim to make my lessons enjoyable but structured, and always try to tailor the lessons to the student's need, encouraging their feedback.

It is useful to understand the demands and expectations of new pupils, and so I am willing to communicate with students and their parents before the lesson in order to establish the pattern of the lessons.

Personal Description:
I have 29 years teaching experience both in the UK and overseas. I feel it's important to understand a students learning style and adjust lesson materials to suit that style whilst setting purposeful, realistic and attainable goals.

I enjoy teaching and deem it a privilege to have a share in helping others reach their aspirations.

Teaching Experience:

Between 1992 & 2010 I lived and taught in Hong Kong to a variety of students from Chinese medium of instruction (CMI), English medium of instruction (EMI) and international schools to help them develop the four English language skills. Assistance was given to help students progress towards their HKCEE (GCSE equivalent)and `A` levels, and in later years the IB diploma and IGCSE.

Topics used in the lessons covered many of disciplines in the school curriculum, including, history, geography, economics, biology, English literature and Liberal studies. Further guidance was given to help students prepare for exams, such as, Cambridge`s KET and PET the SAT and IELTS exams and common apps for HE.

Since returning to the UK in 2010, I have continued teaching overseas students via SKYPE. In the past four years I have been helping students now studying in the UK with their GCSE and A levels, and currently helping students with their dissertations for their chosen degrees.

I have a Trinity CERTTesol and a MA in English Language Teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a CLIL approach to teaching, which means I teach English using the content and language taken from the student`s curriculum. My experience also qualifies me to teach English literature, History, biology and geography to GCSE level.

I am committed to providing students with assistance to achieve the grades they need by patiently tutoring each student according to their learning style. I trust that my student-centred approach is effective in this area. My one-to-one tuition produces noticeable improvements in student confidence, attainment and ambition.
