Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is mainly focussed on grammar, conversation and exercises. However, depending on the nature of the classes (school, academic or casual learning), I tailor my lessons to meet the tutee's personal requirements and needs.
I am aware of all the difficulties of learning a foreign language, therefore I make sure that the students not only have an effective class but also an enjoyable time. Learning must be fun!

Personal Description:
I have a degree in Journalism and English and a Certificate in Education. I am able to tutor GCSE English Language GCSE English Literature, GCSE Maths, ESOL English Literature, GCSE Geography, GCSE Psychology and Media Studies to A level. I have given tuition to individuals and small groups of students at undergraduate level and offer friendly, relaxed lessons individually, or in groups up to five people, tailored exactly to what the pupil requires

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of one to one tutoring with both school and college students and adults, plus larger group teaching. I have been doing private tuition in my own home for four years now and its better for students to come to me as its a pressure free environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to teach from my home:
My home is quiet and fairly minimalistic. Lessons are held in my offce and I have a computer and Ipad that students can use.

I use the first meeting to talk about any difficulties in learning the subject in a formal educational setting and discuss any specific learning difficulties you may have. We can chat about strategies to help you learn more effectively and I will work with you at a pace that suits you. I will also ask the student to complete a learning styles questionnaire.


To the best of my ability I try to make subjects interesting to young people and re-engage them. I also encourage students to bring along any work they may be struggling with so I can go through it with them. I can help you get to where you need to be. Please only contact me and purchase my details if you are genuinely interested in my services. No time wasters please. Please note if you require me to travel to you there will be a charge.

Personal Description:
I practised as a Solicitor, specialising in Criminal Law for some 18 years, having attained a 2:1 Combined Honours LLB in Law and Politics, followed by the Professional Qualification - 6 of those years were running my own sole practice.
My original career plan was to teach, and so having undertaken my Professional Graduate Diploma of Education., I have contracts to teach Law and History subjects, at varying levels, including the Levels 3 and 6 Professional CILEX Law qualification, to different age groups. This leaves me time to offer a more individually tailored service to students requiring extra help as the exam season approaches.
My particular subject area is Law, from Level 3 to Level 6.
A Level and Undergraduate Law tutoring in litigation based subjects are my specialities - especially Criminal Law / Contract / Tort / Employment

Teaching Experience:

- Level 6 Law for The Institute of Legal Executives Professional Practice Qualification
- Level 3 (A Level standard) Business Law in Accountancy Professional Practice
- Level 3 History (A Level standard - Access to Higher Education [Teaching] Course
- Level 3 Law and Business
- Level 3, Year 1 Diploma in Law - Tort / Crime / Contract / Employment subjects and Preparing /Organising /Writing/ Directing Mock Trials
In summary, I teach law to 16-18 year olds and professionals, trainee accountants, and working paralegals, as well as History and Health subjects to students progressing to university

Tutoring Approach:

Assessment and curriculum requirements of the relevant course are paramount to ensure the student knows what the examining / awarding body expects in order to achieve. Once this is clear, the student can then begin to enjoy the learning through scenarios and stories
Review of learning, by inter-linking new topics with old, and use of examples and scenarios built and developed from experience, enables the student to recall and use what they know
Every student has an individual way of learning, and tapping into that is essential for transferring knowledge. Advice on examination technique, and the expectations of coursework are often neglected in mainstream teaching, yet are vital to qualification, and the use of knowledge.
I have a strong belief that tutees often overestimate the amount of paid tutoring they need, especially with the wealth of resources available, and with the appropriate guidance, the cost effectiveness of individual teaching and advice can surprise - in any case my charges are kept low, because I enjoy the work.
I'm happy to provide tuition at the tutees home, and only make a charge 12 per lesson for the return travel - that includes travel time and expense within a radius of 20 miles - learning should be fun as well as affordable, because if it's hard work, it's hard to remember.

Personal Description:
I have a thorough knowledge of UK NC requirements and continue to work closely with CIE and Edexcel. I am very well organized and try and structure learning so that every student is clear and comfortable as to what is needed to swiftly progress between levels and am quick to intervene where this is not the case. I am a strong believer in making teaching and learning fun, meaningful and thought provoking - encouraging collaboration, presentation, debate and discussion as much as possible. I am an advocate of inquiry based and active learning where appropriate and in making the learning process as memorable and enjoyable as possible. At the same time I remain conscious of the need to constantly maintain the high expectations, pitch, pace and rigour which are needed for exam success in years 10-13. I pride myself on the fact that pupils of all levels and abilities enjoy coming to my classes even though they know they will have to work hard and apply themselves to the best of their ability. I am student centred, approachable and patient.

Teaching Experience:

I have been part of a number of very strong and well organised Humanities departments in the UK, Spain, Asia and the Middle East each of which has enjoyed high take up rates and excellent exam results and from which I have learnt a great deal when it comes to effective teaching and learning. I value collaborative working and the sharing of best practice and am proud of the network of solid contacts I have built up over time as well as the relationships I have built and maintained among staff and students, in the UK and abroad. I take care to keep up to date with the latest pedagogical practice and regularly attend events at the Institute of Ideas and the Historical Association. I am also currently working towards my Masters and am genuinely interested in reflecting on how young people best learn and how to best achieve a balance between exam success and love of subject

Tutoring Approach:

I am always looking to take on board ways in which I can improve what others and I are doing in order to raise pupil engagement and thus attainment and firmly believe that if something is worth doing it is worth doing well - and then improved upon second time round. A portfolio of pupil work, results and student/parent feedback is available. I am aware of the need for stimulating tutoring coming as it does at the end of a long day of study and have a proven track record of engaging students and getting them the top grades at every level.

As well as Teaching A-Level Sociology(AQA) I have experience of Teaching GCSE Sociology (AQA), Access to HE Social Sciences and Sociology to International Students from Norway as part of the Programme for Norwegian Sixth Form Students run by Cambridge Regional College.

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old graduate of Museum Studies MA/HONS from Bournemouth University. My university education began with York St John University gaining a 2:1 BA/HONS. At York University Masters degree in Medieval history at and later traveling down to Bournemouth completing a course reading Museum Studies.
During my studies at York I worked as a Tour guide with the company York Walk, as a researcher, historic adviser and presenter for Unicorn films and a research volunteer for the Rowntree society. Whilst continuing my studies I worked at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and the Poole Museum as a volunteer curator.
I have since September 2011 finished my studies, I have resumed my part time job as a Tour guide in York.

I find the topic of history fascinating, over the last few years I have begun to focus on the history of the Vikings in England, Scotland, Norway and Denmark; though my interests are much more diverse and cover the 2000 year history of Britain as well as Europe. However I do enjoy enthusing about the subject, and consider the ability to pass on enthusiasm to be the key to being a successful tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have shadowed a GCSE and A level class at the Fulford School, Mathematics and Computing College‎
National Maritime Museum Cornwall took four 1/2 hour sessions

Tutoring Approach:

I take a structured approach which blends the formal and informal.
With a knowledge of the required syllabus if n formal education, a more formal and structured approach will be adopted, but in these circumstances will always encourage participation.
If teaching students who are not subject to a narrow syllabus I will always aim to nurture their own innate curiosity for the subject of history.
The goal as I see it is to pass on my innate curiosity for the subject by encouraging participation through research and leading by example.
I am acquainted with different learning styles and I will be willing to adapt my approach to deal with learners of any ability.
Indeed as I take a flexible attitude towards tutoring if given particular instructions I will be more than happy to adopt a new style
In teaching an historical subject I will always endeavor to teach through first hand documentation introducing the student to the primary material before introducing the later revisionist work.

Personal Description:
I am a History graduate from the University of Reading. I studied a wide range of topics and time periods during my degree, including late medieval and modern history. My specialist subject is the Tudors. I am very enthusiastic about my subject and teaching it to others.

Teaching Experience:

I have a successful track record of tutoring A level history.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that every student has a different approach to learning and I feel it is important to build this into a tutoring plan. I would start by identifying areas which the student needs help on and find out how they like to learn. I would then use this information, and a variety of teaching techniques, to ensure they reach their full potential. I believe learning should be fun and stimulating in order for students to progress.

Personal Description:
I am head of a large and modern sixth form, previously head of History in two other sixth forms and have taught A levels and GCSE`s for 20 plus years. I am also a WJEC and Edexcel examiner/moderator and have been for 15 years. I produce consistently excellent results and can offer one-to-one and/or personalised e learning support. I guarantee significant improvement in understanding all areas of history and most importantly how to pass exams with high grades. My focus is on showing students how to plan and present their essays to achieve their potential and provide them with individualised strategies to excel in all aspects of their study. I pride myself on having the ability to take students to another level in understanding the expectations of examiners and have a wealth of resources for students to access. A with my professional teaching degree I have a BA hons. and MPhil in History from the University of Wales, Swansea.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is extensive. I have taught A levels and GCSEs for over twenty years and covered all specifications including WJEC, Edexcel, AQA and OCR. I have taught history modules in all areas from circa 1400 to the the modern day. Specialisms are many, but USA, British and Germany/Italy are very high on my knowledge and skills level. Methods of teaching are individualised to get the very best response from students due to the challenging nature of the tasks and activities. Essay support is a major part of my strength with my experience as an examiner/moderator crucial to fully preparing students for their all important exams

Personal Description:
I am currently a master's student at the London School of Economics and Political Science, studying a Master of Science in History of International Relations. I completed my undergraduate degree in History at University College London receiving a high 2:1.
I went to school in Athens, at the St. Catherine's British Embassy School, receiving 44 out of 45 marks in my International Baccalaureate exams with 7/7 in all the subjects I now tutor.
I have always enjoyed working with young people, volunteering with children through various organisations such as Habitat for Humanity and Camden Libraries since the age of 16. I began tutoring and mentoring while at school and have continued to tutor or mentor in some form every year, working with young people from the ages of 3 to 19. I find the process of helping young people excel academically, very rewarding and genuinely enjoy working with young people.
I am a very friendly, sociable and approachable person with a creative flair, developed through a love for writing and performing. I put my students' academic needs first and strive to help them as best I can to achieve their desired marks.

Teaching Experience:

Summer Private Tutor- 3 tutees
Taught IB-Level and A-Level History, English, Biology, Geography, Theatre Arts - knowledge of different examination boards, including Edexcel, OCR and AQA.
Covered problem areas, explained and gave tips for homework, implemented homework and revision techniques, helped with essay structuring and research.
Went over past paper questions, the best ways to answer the questions and useful techniques and tips to follow. Set timed tasks and past papers to be completed in the class, which were marked for the next lesson.
Gave Extended Essay support: proof reading and improvement advice. Drew on my own my own extensive research skills.
Ensured tasks were varied for each lesson in order to engage the students and keep lessons interesting, upbeat and refreshing. Created a friendly, stress-free environment, focusing on trust and having some fun while learning.
Maintained open communication with the parents so that they were kept up to date with their children's progress.
All tutees boosted their marks in the subject areas taught. One student improved her mark in IB Higher Level History and English A1 from a predicted level 5 to a level 7. Another of the tutees boosted his mark in IB Standard Level Biology from a predicted level 4 to a level 6 and in Standard Level Geography from a predicted level 5 to 6. My other tutee received all A*s in his History, English and Biology A-levels.
Received great feedback from my coordinator about parents being pleased with their children's renewed interest in the subjects they were being tutored.

Tutoring with Team Up (previously the Young Educational Learning Programme - YELP) Nov-Spring 2011 - 5 tutees
Taught GCSE-level History and English Language and Literature.
Provided a straightforward, interesting study technique, particularly for English literature and poem/prose analysis, which seemed to be the most challenging area.
The aim of the programme was to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds, achieving mostly Cs or Ds but also Bs, to reach their full academic potential. I provided plenty of mentoring and focused on fostering a positive attitude towards learning and further education.
Helped students boost their final marks. One student jumped from a B to an A* in English Language and Literature, two from C to an A in History, and one from a D to a C in English.
Received very positive feedback from organisers of the programme, both for the improved results attained, but also for the friendly and fun environment created while teaching.

Tutoring IGCSE - 2008/2009 - 4 tutees
As part of the International Baccalaureate Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) programme, I tutored IGCSE English Language and Literature, History, Drama, Geography and Biology while in my last two years of school.
I mostly covered problem areas, focusing on past paper practice tasks during the hour-long lessons.
The results were positive, with all students achieving Bs and above in the tutored subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that what makes me a good tutor is the understanding that teaching is not just about laying down the facts. It is a process of developing a relationship of trust and engaging the student so that he or she genuinely enjoys learning about the subject. I find that once a student enjoys learning, it is much easier to encourage him or her to absorb the material, performing better in exams. I always try to establish this enthusiasm by varying my techniques, understanding my student's academic needs and keeping the atmosphere friendly yet focused. Every student is capable of boosting his or her marks with the right guidance and with practice. The right guidance involves looking at each student as an individual with specific academic requirements and needs and so I never use a sweeping approach to teaching, rather assessing each student's needs on a case by case basis.

Personal Description:
I began at the University of Virginia in 2014 and have now returned home to England for the summer! I WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM THE BEGINNING OF JULY TO THE 19TH OF AUGUST. I completed my A levels in 2013 and am currently studying towards a double major in Foreign Affairs and Psychology. I'm a fun, hard working and energetic character whose always had a passion for working with children.

Because I`ve recently finished school I am very familiar with how the exam system runs, and know where the 'crunch' times will occur. As I am at university in America currently, I have completed the SATs multiple times so can help teach time management as I myself had to struggle to stay on top of 13 applications and extra essays!

I want to help kids create effective and fun ways to revise so that they can overcome the stress of everyday work loads and exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many different children on a weekly basis since 2013. Their ages range from 8-14 and at the moment I teach French, maths, English and verbal skills. I've been able to see a huge improvement with the kids that I worked with and I love getting to know each of them and build a relationship of trust and fun!

I have worked with children with disabilities for 4 years now, including those with autism and other mental challenges, to those with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy. Working with children will not be difficult for me as I have also casually tutored friends on areas of work they found particularly hard, as well as helped them create work plans so they could stay on top of their studies. In addition, I have been selected to be an academic advisor to students entering their first years of university.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important part of being a tutor is helping the child find an effective strategy to deal with their work load. Whether that means using flash cards, creating mnemonics or testing, I want to make the process as fun as possible. In addition, I think helping anyone with their general work load will mean aiding them in creating usable structures and easy step plans so a 5 page essay can be managed in small bitesize sections. Learning time management is also equally important, so I would emphasise this too in my teaching.

I like to keep the lessons as fun and interesting as possible. Of course, work still needs to be done, but I don't like being forceful or strict. I want a child to be able to see me as someone to look up to and look forward to our lessons, rather than dread them!

Extra work is up to the child/parents, I'm happy to set prep so long as it isn't getting in the way of the child's other studies.

Personal Description:
I read English at Cambridge and graduated with honours in 2012. My specialist subject is English and I also teach History and Philosophy and Ethics as well as having experience of teaching KS3/4 Maths.

Studying English at Cambridge means that I have an excellent understanding of my specialist subject. I have a comprehensive knowledge of literature from medieval to present day - I love literature, art, and the humanities and enjoy working with tutees across different age groups to engage and inspire them in these fields. I have a good knowledge of the current curriculum and previous successful tutoring experience.

Further, I have a comprehensive knowledge of the admissions process and have experience of helping with Personal Statements, University Applications and Interview Technique.

Teaching Experience:

My experience and testimonials are as follows:

-GCSE English Literature: 20 hours of tuition. Practised analysing poetry, studied set texts (including Shakespeare), helped with essay writing technique and general spelling practise. Student was predicted a D grade and achieved an A grade. Has gone on to apply to Oxford.

-GCSE English Literature: 10 hours of tuition. Studied Poetry in advance of examination (Carol Anne Duffy, Simon Armitage, poems from other cultures). Advised on revision techniques and exam techniques. Student went from B grade to A grade. "You gave me the keys to unlock so much more in poems that I've never seen before." (Pupil)

-Seminar with a group of aspiring Oxbridge Candidates: 2 hours. Gave comprehensive advice on interview techniques for University entrance and helped with personal statements.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a determined, confident and flexible tutor. I am always ready to tailor my lessons to individual students' needs in order to achieve excellent results. My creative approach and enthusiasm for learning means that lessons are accessible and interesting. Not only do I aim to achieve better results, but I also seek to improve students all-round enjoyment of and confidence with their subject by introducing them to other texts or subjects that may cultivate their interest.

I have outstanding interpersonal skills and am extremely approachable, as a result my students are always encouraged to ask questions if they don't understand. I motivate my students by planning lessons effectively and implementing clear objectives, ensuring that they leave each lesson with a deeper understanding than when they came.

Hi, my name is Sophie. I am studying Biochemistry at Edinburgh University, having just finished my gap year working at IBM. I love to spend my spare time either on the hockey pitch, in the kitchen or doing some art.

Teaching Experience:

Science Buddy for 2 years at school
Summer Camp Leader for 3 years running
Leader at Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows
Work experience at an Adult Learning Centre

Tutoring Approach:

It has been my experience, both as a tutor and as a student, that the best way to engage with course material is to figure out which styles of learning work best for you. I personally found certain aspects of learning quite challenging during my time in school but by finding the methods that most suited my needs, I was able to maximize my learning potential.

My tutoring style emphasizes collaboration and positive reinforcement in order to produce a friendly learning environment.

From my charity work abroad in Ghana to my role as Deputy Head Girl at my secondary school, I have gained the interpersonal skills necessary to develop productive and compassionate relationships with pupils. Students will find themselves excited for their lessons and eager to achieve new standards of excellence.

Personal Description:
I am a recently qualified (July 2011) English teacher with four years of experience, teaching in secondary schools in Lincolnshire.

In my spare time I enjoy painting and exhibiting / selling my art and performing as a vocalist at various open mic nights in Lincolnshire as well as reading copious amounts of fantastic and terrible literature! I also love cooking for friends and family.

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.

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.
