Personal Description:
I am currently experienced in Science, English and History predominantly, and am fluent in 3 languages, with a basic knowledge of some European languages.

I have also been involved in setting up a Limited Company which aims to provide academic resources to students in Higher Education (at University level).

My work experience in the healthcare, higher education and training business sectors over the last 13 years has also given me the opportunity to develop a range of teaching / training styles that will suit most learners very well.

Teaching Experience:

Over 8 years experience, delivering 1-2-1 tuition to students aged predominantly 6-18.

Most common subjects taught - English / Maths / Science (up to GCSE). Also worked extensively with adults in the local community, training people in basic computing skills relevant to their specific needs.

For those interested in Business Studies, or how to set up your own business, I can offer lessons on these topics as well, including topics on where to go to get your funding, and how to market yourself effectively (including networking) etc.

Tutoring Approach:

I follow the National Curriculum, with set lesson plans for each tutor session.

We will follow a learning plan that will run alongside school teaching. I do not help with school homework on a regular basis. Instead, I use the time I spend with each student, to improve their areas of weakness, so that they can do their homework and coursework / assignments with confidence themselves.

Lesson 1 is always a discussion of what the student / parents wish to achieve, along with an assessment of the students current capabilities. If you would like the first lesson to be more productive, I can send the assessment to be completed before the first class. The assessment will need to be returned 24hrs before the first planned lesson so I can look it over and plan my teaching approach for the student.

Teaching styles / tools:
- Each lesson will have a starter discussion about any areas of concern in school - I will make notes and plan to work on those areas in the next lesson.

- We will then work on a mini-project together, which will help the student to learn and develop a range of skills that he/she can then use in their own coursework / homework assignments.

- For subjects which involve reading, the student will be given homework to read a chapter / section for discussion at the next class.

- For Maths / Science, there will be worksheets which the student will need to complete on his/her own after lesson.

- If at any time there are any questions / concerns from the students or parents, I am more than happy to spend part of the lesson in discussion about these with you.

- All lessons are taught in an informal and positive / open-discussion style. But in order to make lessons successful and get the most out of your learning plan, please ensure that there is somewhere quiet to work, and that you have all of the required equipment / stationery beforehand (i.e. pens / pencils / eraser / ruler / calculator / notebook or note paper etc).

- It would also be useful to have internet / wifi set up, to use either with your own computer, or with mine to access online resources.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
All student details are kept confidential and you can be assured that no personal information will be shared with anybody else. However, I may ask permission to use student's work as an example of how to achieve highly in assignments / homework, with other student. Again, all personal details would be removed.

The minimum time per lesson is 1 hour per week for regular bookings.

Semi-Intensive courses can be booked at 2+ hours per week with prior agreement.

Intensive 2-4 week courses can be booked with daily lessons close to exam times. These have very limited spaces available and would include longer classes if need be, depending on how the student performs during our initial assessment.

Intensive courses are also very useful for students wanting to pass grammar school entrance examinations or prepare for other specific exams and assessments.

Lessons can also be taught online, via Skype or Google Hangouts. All prices are reduced for online tutoring - please contact me for further information.

Personal Description:
I'm an enthusiastic and easy-going guy who enjoys bringing the best out of people. An award-winning teacher, I have years of teaching experience and a PhD in politics.

From 2011 to 2016 I worked as a lecturer at the University of Westminster, receiving a prize for my efforts having been nominated by my students for teaching excellence.

I also have an excellent academic record, completing my PhD at the University of Westminster in 2016. Prior to this I studied politics, sociology and philosophy at the University of York and the University of Leeds. At Leeds I received a prize for the highest mark in my graduate year at Leeds and I was awarded scholarships to fund my studies at York and Westminster.

Besides my academic work, I've up to ten years of experience working as a researcher in public policy. I currently work for the NHS and have previously worked at think-tanks including the Work Foundation and the New Economics Foundation. I enjoy a range of hobbies, including the guitar and sports.

Teaching Experience:

I worked for five years experience as a lecturer at the University of Westminster and received a prize for my efforts. My role included lecturing, leading seminars, marking and providing pastoral support for students. I specialised in research methods and provided advice and support for students undertaking their dissertations.

Additionally, I have a TEFL qualification and before going to university I taught English for three months in Bolivia.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor lessons to students' interests and needs, and strive to make the material as engaging as possible. Well structured and planned, the lessons proceed logically and the contents are explained as clearly and concisely as possible. Discussion and debate are actively sought. I also provide advice on generic academic skills such as researching, essay writing and delivering presentations.

Personal Description:
I graduated in 2006 from Queen Mary University of London after achieving a 2:1 in English and History. It took me a couple of years before I found my passion for teaching, a passion that was made even more acute, by having worked in more conventional jobs, which I didn't enjoy after leaving university. I have a passion for horses and horse riding and have a young horse, I love writing, reading, cooking and walking my dogs as well as teaching. I love living in the country and taking part in all aspects of country life.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career teaching in Andover as a full time primary school teacher. I started off in Year 5 and progressed into Year 3. I have tutored a variety of different children:
Child 1: 2010- present, 16 year old (Autistic), GCSE Geography, English Literature, Science, Maths and Environmental Science. B-Tec in Countryside management.
Child 2: April 2011-November 2011, 10 year old, Year 6 Maths, 11+ preparation.
Child 3: January 2011- September 2011, 10 year old, 11+ preparation.
Child 4: January 2011- Present, 8 year old, Year 3/4 Maths tuition, horse riding.
Child 5: April 2011-Present, 7 year old (Dyslexic/Dysnumerate), Maths tuition.
Child 6: January 2012 - present, 11+ preparation.
I have been a freelance educational journalist for three years now writing for `Primary teacher Update` magazine which is a very reflective exercise and I thoroughly enjoy it.
In September 2012 I moved to a school in Ringwood and was the Year 3 Year Leader covering a maternity position.
(September 2013) As I`ve moved into my fifth year as a qualified teacher, I have now settled into a different school in Ringwood and am back in Year 5 enjoying supporting a wide variety of different abilities of children.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very individualised style and approach to tutoring. I believe that each child is completely unique and that if you find the right key, whether its jumping on a trampoline whilst reciting their times tables or making a colourful mind map to understand how the bodies immune system works, you can unlock their understanding. I enjoy tutoring because you see children really blossom and the progress they make with one on one support is truely astounding and lovely to be a part of. I believe communication between parent and tutor as well as tutor and tutee is key to success. If you would like to discuss my methods further please don`t hesitate to call for an informal chat.

Personal Description:
I am a twenty-seven year-old graduate, currently studying for a PhD in History at Queen Mary University of London.

I am young, enthusiastic, and have excellent communication skills. I have lived in London for two years, and in my spare time I enjoy football, playing the guitar and reading about history.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my academic career I have engaged in mentoring and tutoring schemes. During my A levels I tutored a number of pupils through their History GCSEs, and at university I was a volunteer mentor for first year students, helping them to structure their studies and get through exams during a particularly challenging time.

As part of my PhD programme, I teach three seminars with first-year undergraduates on a weekly basis on a course about the Anglo-American "special relationship" in the twentieth century.

I have worked as a private tutor for six years. I have lots of experience in tutoring students at GCSE and A Level, and have worked with students with a range of capabilities.

My long-term goal is a career as a lecturer or teacher. I have enjoyed the process immensely whenever I have engaged with students, and want to broaden my experience as much as possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that my young age, and the fact I took my A levels and GCSEs relatively recently, gives me a strong advantage in tutoring. All the difficulties and emotions students encounter when taking these exams are fresh in my memory, and I am confident that with encouragement, patience and a friendly understanding, I can make a huge difference to students' prospects. My strong academic record is testament to my ability to approach exams efficiently and with enthusiasm, and my experience in tutoring has developed my skills in approaching a range of student issues, from last-minute revision to long-term guidance.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 12 years of experience as a teacher. From 2004 to 2006, I worked as a History, Portuguese, English and other subjects tutor to primary and secondary students. From 2006 to 2012, I worked as a tutor guiding students in preparation of essays and dissertations in many different fields. Since 2012 I work as a full time Portuguese and English teacher in UK. I have experience with one-to-one and group lessons; beginners, intermediate, advanced and proficiency levels, present tuition and online tuition via Skype; teaching children from the age of 2; preparation for GCSE and A-level exams (OCR board); general training and language training for business purposes.

I have a degree in History with a teaching certificate which included one internship at a secondary school as a teaching assistant. I have a CRB and a DBS check. I did a 3-month training course for teachers at SLAS (Society for Latin American Studies) in 2012. I am flexible about working hours and commuting to work.

Tutoring Approach:

• General training: I teach how to use Portuguese in everyday situations, like introducing yourself to someone; giving personal information; going to a restaurant; asking directions; making a reservation in a hotel; using public transport, etc.

• Business: My teaching method is based on a communicative approach, focusing on achieving fluency, improving reading and listening comprehension, and expanding vocabulary. I teach the use of Portuguese in a variety of business environments, based on key skills like presenting information, taking part in meetings and videoconferences, handling telephone calls, negotiating and writing concise business letters, e-mails or reports.

• E-learning: My e-learning method is specifically designed for adults who may have limited hours available, prefer the convenience of learning online and need to improve their Portuguese language skills quickly.

• GCSE and A-level exams: I coach the student using past papers, besides writing, reading and listening exercises.

• Children and Teenagers: My lessons for children and teenagers are varied and enjoyable, with music, culture, and multimedia features to make the learning process very enjoyable and practical.

I have 10 years teaching experience, including working as a specialist Learning Support Teacher, and in Special Needs schools catering for children and young adults with a range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple disabilities.

I have particular expertise in studio practice (art and design), digital and darkroom photography (theory, history and practice), literacy, social and vocational skills, as well as History of Art, Anthropology and History of Medicine at undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at undergraduate level, having taught gallery-based first year History of Art courses, for University College London's History of Art Department, and on the History of Art degree programme at the University of Manchester.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a one-to-one, flexible approach to learning and teaching, which first establishes the needs and goals of the student, and then sets out clearly structured strategies for achieving these goals. These may be results-focused when preparing for exams, or aimed at developing a broader understanding of a subject area, depending upon the student's own priorities. I am happy to work with any course materials the student may provide, and I am familiar with all current GCSE and A Level syllabuses. I am able to guide both GCSE and A Level students through their studies, offering consistent, dedicated 1-2-1 tuition for the full term of the course. I can also provide practical tuition for students who are preparing their art portfolios for University submission, and can offer assistance with UCAS forms and references for students who undertake long-term A Level tuition with me.

Tutoring may take place at the student's home, or at my art studio in central Manchester, where I can provide a range of art materials and resources by prior arrangement, for more intensive practical art sessions. Please note that I can travel within 20 miles of central Manchester based on the fee structure quoted below, travelling further will incur a small additional fuel fee.

I have had recent successes with my private students, one of whom attended one-to-one sessions at my Manchester studio for 8 weeks and improved her predicted GCSE Art result of a B by two grades, achieving an A* in her final art exam. My most recent undergraduate students have also attained First class results in their undergraduate degrees. One student achieved a high score of 78 on her History of Art dissertation project with intensive tutorial support conducted via Skype; and another progressed from a fail during the first year of his Visual Communication degree, to a First class final result in his third year, following 2 years of regular commitment to one-to-one tutoring.

*Please note that due to the time-intensive nature of undergraduate level tutoring, I am only able to take on a maximum of three undergraduate tutees at any given time. Please see below for my current availability for tutoring at this level.*

I am currently tutoring TWO undergraduate students.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

GCSE Level:

A Level:

University Undergraduate Level:

"I wanted a tutor to give me help and advice on my undergraduate history of art dissertation. I needed reassurance that what I was writing was okay and some one to proof read and give me their opinion on my arguments. Gemma was brilliant, she gave me the confidence that I needed to keep going with my dissertation by reassuring me that I was on the right track. She discussed my ideas with me in detail, proof read all of my work and suggested and sourced articles that I might want to have a look at. I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a First in History of Art and Media and I know that I owe Gemma a huge thank you for the support she gave me on the way to achieving this."

Personal Description:
My name is Dave, and I live in the Inverness area. I have a degree in History (Hons), and my area of expertise is UK and European social history from 1700. I have also studied US history, Scottish history, and European political history.

I also have a Masters Degree in Employment Law and Practice through the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.

In my spare time I coach school football, and have done so for 8 years.

Teaching Experience:

While I have no formal teaching experience, I have home tutored several children of friends. I have also coached hundreds of children up to age 16, in football lessons. As head coach for the local school, I have taught not only technical skills to children, but just as importantly, instilled a sense of self belief, and confidence, in their abilities. The confidence to express an opinion is vitally important and I do believe that, when it comes to history, belief in ability in expressing one's own viewpoint is crucial.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to encourage self belief, and achieve this through a relaxed, proactive approach to the subject matter. I can critically analyse a students written work, and suggest ways of making those all important changes in order to achieve higher grades.

Personal Description:
I graduated in Classics (5 years) in Italy. I made extensive studies in Ancient Greek and Latin languages and literatures. The final thesis dealt with the historical fragments of Cato the Censor. I am now leading a research doctorate in Roman history at the University of Newcastle. The research concerns the tribunes of the plebs within the Mid-Republican period (218-134 BC), especially focused on the political role of the tribunate in shaping the Roman politics through their legislative action. My first language being Italian, lessons are available both in English and in my mother tongue. As for the Italian literature I can cover all the centuries of its great history, from the pre humanistic time (Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio), until the twentieth century.

Teaching Experience:

I have had experience of teaching in the italian school as a substitute teacher of Latin, Italian and Ancient Greek at the Liceo Classico. I also taught at Universities, most notably Latin and Ancient Greek, in quality of private tutor.

I run seminars in Roman History during the first academic term (2015-2016) at Newcastle University, focusing particularly on the works of the Greek historian Polybius, Sallust's historiographical view concerning the role of the common Roman people in order to determine the events described within the Bellum Iugurthinum, and the political issues of the last period of the Roman Republic that emerge from Cicero's speech Pro lege Manilia.

Tutoring Approach:

Lectures, with particular attention to the requests of the student. Translation exercises (focused on the morphology and syntax of both Ancient Greek and Latin), which are essential to strengthen and, if necessary, to deepen their knowledge of the classical languages​​. Additional readings compared to the tasks assigned by the school.

Personal Description:
INTENSIVE EASTER REVISION COURSES AVAILABLE. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
I studied History and Sociology at Liverpool University. Futhermore my Post Graduate Certificate is in Religious Education. I am a very experienced teacher for over 30 years and have been, separately, Head of History, Head of Religious Education and Citizenship as well as being a Head of a Sixth Form Centre. I have taught a large number of GCSE and A Level classes, and have a proven track record of my students achieving excellent results in GCSE History, Sociology, Social Science and Citizenship. I am also an examiner for the Edexcel examination board. My specialism is Modern History at both GCSE, and 'A' Level. Furthermore, I have great experience of the specialisms: The Changing role of Women and Suffrage 1860 -1930: The Changing role of poverty in Britain 1832-1945: Germany 1919-1945. I am also very familiar with the Twentieth Century British history as well as being a specialist in the Cold War, I also teach A Level Sociology and A Level Law.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a secondary school teacher for over 30 years, and Head of Department/s for over 20 as well as being a Head of Sixth Form. My department's A Level History results are excellent and I have taught students who have progressed to Oxbridge and the Russell Group of universities.
I am also an examiner for the Edexcel GCSE History and the Edexcel A2 History Independent study option.

Tutoring Approach:

Having taught for over 30 years I am extremely familiar with the exam specifications and the skills needed to achieve the highest grades. My approach is to focus first on the content, and ensure you know the details needed for the exam, and then look at exam style and technique. However, I would tailor my approach to the individual requirements of the tutee.

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:
I gained a 1st class degree in Modern History at Oxford University in 2009, specialising in the history of conflicts such as the Northern Irish troubles and Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I have also completed an MA in International Relations at Yale University, where I came top in the year for academic achievement. During my studies at Yale, I taught undergraduates classes in social science and discovered a passion for teaching.

In addition to my academic and teaching experience, I have considerable professional experience in international affairs. I have worked in The Hague for a non-governmental organisation working to build empathy in communities divided by conflict. I have two years of experience project managing international development projects, especially education projects in conflict-affected areas. I have two years of experience as a management consultant working on projects for UK central government departments. I have also carried out part-time research for universities and think tanks.

Teaching Experience:

I have significant teaching experience working with both children and adults at different stages of their academic development.

In 2013, I was a Teaching Fellow at Yale University, delivering social science lessons to classes of over 20 undergraduate students each week. I prepared my classes, coordinated the logistics of the classes with the professor, graded the students' problem sets and provided one-to-one tuition to students.

I have provided private tuition to students for A Level and GSCE in a range of subjects including English, History and Political Science.

I also have provided Oxbridge preparation for students applying to Oxbridge for History and Classics. This included providing preparation materials, interview advice and interview practice.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and diligent tutor who creates tailored lesson plans based on the needs of the individual student. I am patient with students and committed to helping them understand the material and realise their potential in examinations.

I teach Drama to children aged between 2 - 18 years. I plan and deliver five classes each week, alongside directing plays and helping the students prepare for LAMDA exams. I have recently directed 'Ruckus In The Garden' & 'The Complete Works Of Shakespeare (Abridged)' with our Advanced Class at the Capitol Theatre in Horsham. I teach many aspects of theatre including storytelling, acting skills, comedy, improvisation, physical theatre and script work. I run interactive storytelling sessions with my early years classes where the children can learn and participate in stories and poetry.

December 2014 - Bakehouse Factory - Performer/Facilitator

• Storytelling

I taught 2nd and 3rd Form (Yr 7 & 8) drama using existing schemes of work alongside those I created. I taught over 150 pupils per week and as their only drama teacher I was responsible for their reports, three-weekly grades and parent's evenings. The school were so pleased with my contributions to teaching they offered me twice my teaching hours in my second year. I also team taught Yr 9 lessons and I assisted with directing etc in GCSE and A-Level lessons. Alongside academic teaching I led Drama 'actives' after lessons where I created and lead a one hour drama workshop several times a week. Working at Christ's Hospital also gave me the chance to work in a busy theatre environment combining set design, prop making, theatre maintenance, stage management and front of house management. I also directed and co-directed several shows including 'Anything Goes', 'The Crucible', 'Grim Tales', 'Ernie' Incredible Illuciantions', 'Easy Virtue' and 'The Jungle Book'. I have also experienced all aspects of Boarding School life and pastoral care as 98% of students are full time boarders.

Each Summer I taught English to children aged 7 - 12 from around the world. I lived on site (in a boarding school environment) and I was responsible for teaching, entertaining and caring for the children twenty four hours a day. Having worked for the company for several years I reached the level of Assistant Director and Head of TEFL for the residential course. I was responsible for a team of teaching staff and I ensured they were delivering suitable and stimulating English lessons throughout the course. I also taught a class of my own. As Assistant Director I was a senior part of the management team, ensuring all activity and teaching staff were working happily and correctly. In the absence of the Course Director it was my responsibility alone to ensure the smooth running of our course. I often had to deal with couriers and families and I know how to project a professional, caring, enthusiastic and genuine image. I developed my team work skills, learnt how to thrive under immense pressure and my communication skills were constantly used to their full potential.

During a work placement with the Sheffield based theatre company Point Blank I worked with a partner to devise and deliver a cultural drama workshop. I worked as a mentor for two international students who had travelled to the UK to teach school children about their cultures. I taught the two international students how to deliver a successful drama workshop and I helped them shape their own ideas into an educational and enjoyable drama workshop for Primary School children. Alongside this project I also worked with an English partner to create a cultural workshop for deprived children in the city. I contacted The Sheffield Children's Centre and created a relationship with them enabling us to take our workshop to underprivileged children who had never had the chance to express themselves through drama.

June - September 2006 - The Funzone - Playworker

The Fun Zone provided after-school and summer holiday childcare play schemes for children, aged three to twelve. I would lead activities, play group games, prepare and cook the children's meals, clean the rooms, supervise children and be responsible for groups of children on various outings and trips throughout the summer. I learnt how to work with children and how to work effectively to carry out duties such as cooking and cleaning, while making sure the children in my care were both entertained and safe.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly, fun and experienced tutor. I believe a healthy dose of humour and kindness is important when teaching and I am a very professional and hard working person.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified (July 2011) English teacher with four years of experience, teaching in secondary schools in Lincolnshire. I graduated from Pembroke College, Cambridge in 2010 and, during my time there, gained experience teaching English as a second language and mentoring young people at home with special educational needs.
In my spare time I enjoy painting and exhibiting / selling my art and performing as part of Americana acoustic duo 'The Rye Sisters' in Lincolnshire as well as reading copious amounts of fantastic and terrible literature! I also love cooking for friends and family.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher with Bishop Grosseteste University College, Lincoln in 2011. My training schools included Christ Hospital, Banovallum and De Aston. I taught English and Media at Sir William Robertson School for three years and then spent a year at North Kesteven teaching English and Communication & Culture with added responsibility in developing Key Stage 3 to support the requirements of the new national curriculum and GCSEs. I have also privately tutored and mentored special needs students under the 'son-rise' programme and taught English as a foreign language to adults and students in India and Romania. I have been teaching privately since 2015.

Tutoring Approach:

After four years of teaching in schools in Lincolnshire, I had a revelation! My favourite moments in the classroom have always been those quiet conversations with individual students during and after classes that often lead to major learning breakthroughs. And that's when I realised that, with only a small change, I could dedicate my career to being in this role. As such, my approach is very much student lead and I can plan sessions according to your preferred learning style, stage and areas of difficulty.

Personal Description:
My name is Jasmine, I am 19 years old, and I am currently studying TESOL and Japanese at York St John University. My career goal is to become a translator, and I am working hard to help that happen. My hobbies are reading, writing, and music, which is also how I spend most of my free time (that and running around after my two younger brothers!).

N.B.
As my home address is in Cornwall, and my university address is in York, I am available to tutor in Cornwall during the holidays, and in York during term time.

Teaching Experience:

Though I have had no professional experience tutoring, during secondary school I was a mentor for helping younger children with reading and writing. I also have several language partners that I help to enhance their English skills as well as correcting their grammar. My university course includes the TESOL certificate, which specialises in teaching English as a second language, improving my teaching skills.

Tutoring Approach:

As stated previously, while I have never professionally tutored, I think this role would be good for me. I am patient and persevering, and understand through my own experiences that it is not always possible to learn through one method, but instead, there are many ways to learn new information that is tailored to your needs. While I am young meaning I may have less experience in this field, I also think an advantage of my age is that I am very open minded.

Personal Description:
Does your child needs 1-1 support with English or Maths?
Is your child struggling to keep up with school-work, homework or the demands of GCSE?

I can offer 1-1 support in a comfortable learning environment from an inspirational, patient and friendly trainee teacher who has taught whole classes and taught children 1-1 in schools and tutored GCSE Maths privately over the last 4 years.

Teaching Experience:

I spent two years partaking in work experience working across KS1 and KS2 to work towards my degree. As part of my degree I have taught KS1 and KS2 classes and individual children in 1-1 interventions. Also, I privately have tutored before to good success for a young girl working towards her GCSE Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very intuitive to the learning styles of all children. I like to spend some time getting to know a child and how they learn so as when working with them, I can work on their individual strengths to develop their understanding of different subjects.
