Personal Description:
I am interested in inspiring the people I work with and thoroughly enjoy both learning and teaching. I believe in lifelong learning and self development. Learning should be engaging and doesn't need to feel like hard work- I think it all depends on your approach!

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language in South Korea and also worked for a local council for 2 years teaching Adults numeracy. I have experience of working with different ages and levels.

I only teach GCSE Maths and English up to Foundation level.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in nurturing natural ability and also opening up learning to those who find education challenging.

My approach to tutoring incorporates communicating ideas in their simplest form that in turn ensures understanding. I strive to create a comfortable learning environment where the methods are adapted to the needs of my tutees.The success of my students is of utmost importance and thus my aim is to facilitate learning in any way that i can.

Personal Description:
22 year old Cambridge grad (2014) based in East London.

Double-first in Modern and Medieval languages.

4 A* at A Level (French, Spanish, History and Russian A-Levels;) and an A (Maths A-Level).

11 A*s at GCSE: IGCSE English Language, IGCSE English Literature, IGCSE Maths, IGCSE Physics, IGCSE Chemistry, IGCSE Biology, Russian, History, French, Spanish, Music and A (drama) at GCSE; A in Additional Maths FSMQ.

Teaching Experience:

Experience of tutoring 11-16 year olds.
I have tutored several students during their GCSEs, primarily in Maths, French, English, Spanish, History and Russian. I tailor my tutoring lessons to the needs of my pupils; I have taken both students throughout their full GCSE two year course and have also done exam specific tutoring lessons.

A levels.
I have tutored several pupils for A Levels, both with helping develop their coursework and improving their writing style. Through tutoring I have seen the slight changes in the exam boards and have the benefit of going through it myself quite recently. A significant part of achieving high grades is about understanding how to 'tick' the right boxes.

University Admissions.
Having gone through the UCAS System I have found that several of my pupils have benefited from my university admission tutoring. I have primarily worked on preparation for Oxbridge entrance tests and interviews. I have been doing this throughout my university career and have the benefit of being exposed to the tutors that will interview the candidates.

I have also signed up with big tutoring companies such as Holland Park.

Tutoring Approach:

When going through GCSEs and A Levels I tailor my classes to the student. It is important to know what grade a pupil is aiming for, their previous experience and how much time there is before their exam. I usually make sure that my pupils know the core basics that sometimes can be skipped over at school which make it harder for students to grow if they have not established the basics.

For languages I think it is very important to have a core understanding of grammar and vocabulary. My pupils benefit from lessons from me as I can speak French and Spanish fluently and Russian proficiently.
Whilst at university I majored in literature and therefore can share my approach to literature and poetry for English A level students.
For History A Level I work with the students developing their ideas and working on their essays which are very important in determining your grade achieved.

Having studied a full range of A levels I know what is needed for a pupil to succeed when faced with difficult exams and coursework questions.

I aim to provide clear explanations to solving problems along with useful exam technique. Friendly, enthusiastic and patient.

Personal Description:
My name is Marco, during the past twelve years, I have taught the Italian language in England and abroad.
My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- organization of workshops, conferences, public lectures and roundtables with teachers, heads of schools, deans of universities to enhance the presence of the Italian language teaching in Guatemala among schools and private and State funded Universities;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Universitą per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;
- creation of strategic networks among various educational partners both locally and internationally for the provision of scholarships for students and teachers in need;


I am graduate in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University Ca' Foscari of Venice and I possess the ITALS Master's Degree in Teaching and promotion of the Italian language and culture to foreigners.

At December 2007 I graduated with success from the ITALS M. A. Degree in Teaching and Promotion of Italian Language and Culture of the University Ca' Foscari of Venice. The topic of my dissertation was linked to how organize an MFL interactive teaching unit in a class composed of students with different abilities.
At the end of May 2008 I published Mosaico Italia, a book on Italian Language and Culture that can be used with students with an Intermediate level of Italian (level B1 of the Common European Reference for Languages). This book aims to provide a didactic instrument to investigateItalian reality.

I added to my knowledge gained 'in the field' by taking the Master's Degree in Education at Birkbeck, University of London, graduating in November 2011 with Distinction. Success on this program entailed my being able to integrate effectively concrete work experience with theoretical knowledge in such a way that I deepened my analytical skills, overall.

Teaching Experience:

My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Universitą per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;

Tutoring Approach:

think I am able to enhance the skills of low performing students by individualizing teaching methods and processes. My teaching style focuses very much on the outcomes my students wish to achieve by improving their Italian, be they grammatical, written or conversational. I am dedicated to helping my students learn and improve their Italian in an atmosphere that encourages interaction, listening, feedback and empathy. Above all, I like to make the process of learning Italian a fun experience that enriches my students' personal and professional lives through a sense of achievement.
The teaching techniques, which could be useful in a Foreign Language Tuition, are those in which communication between the tutor and the student is always is promoted. In this regard, mutual interaction and collaboration lead to a more natural learning of the language. This process follows a teaching method where the humanist-affective approach is used to practice the basic and integrated linguistic abilities while learning a foreign language.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of St. Andrews in 2010. Since then, I have been working in various different guises as a teacher and a tutor. I am currently finishing a law degree.

- 3 hours a week teaching business English classes for T-Mobile.
- 10 hours a week tutoring teenage students through an agency called Projecte Cangur.
- 5 hours a week teaching a variety of adult clients.

Personal Description:
I am a fourth year medical student at Imperial College London. Having recently been through high school and excelled in both GCSEs and A-levels, I know what it requires for a student to perform to the best of their ability. I am a strong believer that with hard work and the right guidance, most students can go on to achieve excellent grades.

Teaching Experience:

During my A-levels, I have helped teach younger students in Geography and Maths classes, but the majority of my teaching experience has been with my two younger brothers. I have worked very hard with them over the years and take pride in the fact that they too performed exceptionally well at school through my help.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make my lessons interactive, explaining complex ideas in the simplest and most interesting way possible. I strongly believe that student must first develop a good conceptual understanding of the subject before refining their exam technique. I will work hard for my students and expect them to do the same in their studies.

Personal Description:
For the last two years I have worked full time as a tutor but have tutored alongside studying for five years. I am a graduate of Durham (BA History), and UCL (MA Central and South Eastern European Studies).

My main areas of interest are humanities and languages and I am an enthusiastic and passionate communicator. I currently hold a CRB certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced tutor, having spent the past five academic years tutoring a range of subjects, and have a passion for teaching and communication. Having been a part time participant of mainstream education until recently, and having tutored many different pupils at different levels in different subjects in that time, I have a clear understanding of the structure of current A-Level courses and the necessary requirements. I have a very high success rate with many of my pupils achieving the highest grades and all demonstrating a marked improvement since tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring approach to the tutee's needs and the subject being taught. Generally, I do a combination of exam technique, subject revision and coursework support. I have made many an amusing yet educational quiz and strongly encourage pupils to achieve the best grade possible.

Personal Description:
I recently finished a 2 year course at Greenhead Sixth-Form College and am currently taking a BA in English at the University of Oxford. English Literature, History, Mathematics and Physics were my chosen subjects; I dropped Physics in the second year. Voted by The Times as number 1 sixth-form state college, Greenhead was a challenge. Through hard work, I achieved highly (as shown by my qualifications). My first year at Oxford University has come to a close: I achieved a 2.1. I am calm and polite, unpretentious and enthusiastic, consistent and professional in behaviour, but always friendly and never clinical.

Teaching Experience:

At Greenhead I volunteered to help students, especially in Maths and English, and I often voluntarily read with school children at Lightcliffe Primary. I have only recently decided to tutor, but have a past immersed in education (both my parents are teachers).

Tutoring Approach:

I understand the value of your education and the importance of a personalised approach to learning. I advocate a focused, disciplined education, but understand how to motivate younger, or less mature tutees. I know my fields well and keep up to date in current advances - anything I need to learn, I will, swiftly and with pleasure. I am extremely perceptive, able to quickly and effectively identify how a tutee learns best. Having recently left education myself, I can sympathise with those currently part of it. This, I believe, is a huge advantage - as one recently taught, I know what is an effective, modern way of teaching. Above all, I simply enjoy the rewards of good tutoring: watching a tutee grow and thrive. In little other professions is such a reward possible, and this, ultimately, is why I am so dedicated to spending every second required to make your tutoring a success.

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 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:
Hi, I am Eve! I was born in Durban, South Africa and moved to London in 2001. I studied a BA in Theatre and Film at the University of Bristol and was awarded First Class Honours in 2009. Alongside building my theatrical career, I continue to tutor and regularly run theatre workshops at a refugee centre in Leicester Square. I am completing an MA at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and Birkbeck College.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously gained over 500 hours of teaching experience, helping students to lift their grades by up to 4 levels and build their confidence considerably. I enjoy working with people of different nationalities and have taught classes at the prestigious Frances King School of English.

Recommendation:
'Eve tutored my son from October 2013 to June 2014, in GCSE Drama, English, History and Spanish. My son found her teaching to be very clear and he required a great understanding of all the subjects taught, which was reflected in his very improved grades. Eve has a natural enthusiasm for teaching and an excellent ability to communicate with people. I would give her my highest recommendation as a tutor. Eve was very keen to get the best out of her student and her encouragement yielded great results!'

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are well-planned, dynamic and thorough. I find working one-to-one with students very satisfying and will adapt to your needs. I am trained as a Prince2 Practitioner, a Project Management methodology that is used internationally. I can work with you to set achievable goals and track progress so that you steadily improve!

When tutoring History, I help students discover people and places from the past in an engaging way. When teaching Spanish, I offer conversation classes with home-cooked Spanish meals! I am studying at RADA, a world renowned drama school and give guidance with acting auditions. I also recommend the best shows that are currently on and offer advice for gaining industry experience. If you are an adult learner and simply want to learn for pleasure, I offer tailor-made sessions in a range of subjects. I am fully DBS checked and can support those with learning difficulties. More references are available on request. I am also happy to negotiate fees for sessions with more then one learner.

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.

Personal Description:
Postgraduate Student.

I am a twenty-one year old postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and understand the tricky bits of their material which is escaping their understanding. I am a Canadian studying abroad here in Glasgow and therefore do not have GCSEs or A levels, but I have the equivalent levels from Canadian institutions with top marks. I tutor best in history, my chosen subject, English or French as a second language, and maths, which I not only did well in during secondary school, but all of which I have also studied at the University level. I get along very well with students of all ages and try to make the tutoring experience a fun an interesting one for any student.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring 1 on 1
ESL teaching (Group sizes from 5-12)
Age range of experience: 7-18 year olds

I have several years of teaching experience in different settings and with different age groups. I've taught English as a Second Language in a camp setting which ran lessons similar to classroom lessons every morning. I had to design my own approaches to various topics which gave me a lot of practice in making studying and learning interesting and easier for children who were less interested or struggling. I also tutored on a private basis for primary school-aged children through the medium of French and English in reading and writing skills as well as the general subjects at that age. I have tutored at the secondary school level in Maths, English, French, Sciences, and History. I have also been a teaching assistant at the University level for both Irish and Scottish Gaelic second language courses as well as a general Celtic World knowledge course.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun.
Aim is to help student learn how they understand instruction so that they are more confident in their own abilities and can perform better in the future.
Use past work to improve on future work.

Learning should be fun and I strive to make the tutoring experience less about school work and more about understanding the ways in which what is being taught is of interest to the student. Finding ways to improve the student's understanding and learning experience sometimes means approaching the material in a different way than is being taught in class. Teachers understand that not all student learn the same way but cannot always deliver their teaching in all these ways. By helping the student understand the material first and then explaining the method the teacher used to explain it first allows the student to reach their full potential, understand the material, and go back to class with a better chance following the teacher's instruction.

All of this is done in a light-mannered way that does not make the child feel as though tutoring is a punishment for not understanding in class, but rather, a (sometimes lengthy) temporary situation until the student becomes more confident about his or her own skills!

Using the student's own work is an important tool for helping them recognize their own areas of difficulty and should be used again as mock exams to help the student see tangible proof of their improvements. The best understanding of any subject comes from watching it being done/having it explained, doing it oneself, and then teaching it in turn.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Steph, I recently completed my postgraduate studies in Screen Studies and I graduated with a 2.1 History BA (Hons). Whilst studying toward my History Degree I studied a variety of different topics in depth, such as, Death in Early Modern England, Aztec and Incan conquests, The English Reformation, The trial of Mary Queen of Scots, Vikings in Ireland, The Normans, Medicine in Modern England 1800s-1970 as well as other topics. My Dissertation was focused on the attitudes toward King John I of England. To A Level I studied The Norman Conquest, The Angevin Empire and The Crusades 1-4. At GCSE Level History I studied the development of Roads, Canals and the Railway in England, Suffragists and Suffragettes and the Public Health Act in England.

Toward my Screen Studies MA I have studied different film theories and cinema history. For my MA Dissertation I researched Japanese Horror Cinema especially the portrayal of the female ghost in horror films Ringu, The Grudge and Dark Water.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped to tutor friends for their GCSE, A Level and Undergraduate degree exams by making fun and interactive games that are more useful when revising. I have also tutored students in GCSE English AQA to help prepare them for their exams.

I volunteered at my local library and worked with young children during arts and crafts' sessions to motivate them into reading.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy creating games and methods that will help the student remember important facts. I believe mini tests and quizzes are helpful when learning and motivate the student to work to their hardest potential.

Personal Description:
I am a very easy going 'people-person' and I am incredibly passionate about learning, character building and the sharing of knowledge. Much of my teaching experience was gained as a camp counsellor or during my Masters (an MRes in Humanities) at Stirling (which is also where I undertook my BA with Honours in History with Religious studies). Presently I am doing a part-time PhD in History at the University of Glasgow. As well as being passionate for interdisciplinary learning and educating (I want to be a lecturer one day) I am also a keen musician and sportsman. As such I believe that learning is an all-round experience which hones the individual. Moreover, I believe that its what you learn about yourself (what you like and want and how you 'tick') that is the most important part of a learning experience. I look to help with this as well as with the 'itty-gritty' of the details of the topic at hand.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years of experience working with children (8-12) and teenagers (12-18) through volunteering as a counsellor for holiday camps where I led a variety of lessons such as sports (I have also done some rugby coaching), arts + crafts and learning about literature and various scriptures. I also have considerable experience in aiding with university level and adult learning through auditing seminars and tutorials, giving lectures and talks and convening reading groups.

Tutoring Approach:

As an interdisciplinary academic I always strive to aid - in any capacity I can - in one's own journey towards a knowledge and understanding of a topic or discipline. For my Tutees I can always be relied upon to build an excellent rapport, to be flexible and to deliver a unique and outstanding service. I tend to be very 'hands-on' with my approach to learning in general but I mainly strive to be a guide; to talk issues through with my tutees in order for them to arrive at revelations for themselves. During this process I aim to help with any queries, theories or problems which arise during that said journey. I am always delighted, however, to give lessons and one-to-one-talk sessions on particular topics in order to boost my tutee's overall knowledge and understanding of the topic at hand.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable, History & Politics teacher, currently teaching in Bromley, Kent. I am very passionate about education and I find great satisfaction in helping young people achieve.

I studied History & American Studies at the University of Nottingham and the University of Toronto, achieving a 2:1. I also have a PGCE at Masters level. I also have A2 Levels in English Literature, History and P.E.

Due to my experience in teaching for a couple of years at a top independent school, l I am happy to help with preparing for the 11+ and entrance examinations, and interview technique.

Teaching Experience:

I spent my first year of teaching working at a top independent boys' school in Surrey, teaching History. I then completed my PGCE, working at two different schools in the Bromley area. I am now in my second year of teaching at Charles Darwin School in Biggin Hill, where I teach History up to A2, Government and Politics up to AS, and Religious Studies up to GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring tutoring to each individual's learning style to get the best out of our time together. I do this whilst also trying to create an enjoyable working environment to encourage maximum learning potential. This is especially important with younger students; I want them to enjoy our sessions so that they look forward to them and get the most out of them.
I have a huge variety of tried and tested resources that I have created and used in the various schools I have worked in. I always adapt these to the needs of the individual learner so they can be of maximum benefit.
I am also happy to set work to be done outside of the sessions, which can then be worked on together in future meetings

Personal Description:
I've just started my second year at St Johns College, Oxford, reading History. I have not only been through secondary education relatively recently, with most of my work saved for reference, but am thriving at Oxford. I have a distinction in my first year Preliminary Examinations and A*s in both A Level and GCSE History and English Literature, which I am looking to tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored several of my peers and even my sister whilst at school, but I am looking to expand my repertoire to tutor as a part-time job in the holidays. This was done both in GCSE and A Levels as I was usually taking their exams and classes in parallel, and so was able to give advice and guidance during the process.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is dependent on what both the parents and the child are looking for. I can focus on simply 'passing' the necessary exams and exam technique, or tailor a more thorough approach to the material in order to build a comprehensive knowledge of the content and aim for higher grades.
I am more than happy to spend time preparing work outside of tutorials, ranging from 'homework' tasks and marking answers to knowledge or skills tests, handouts and presentations. I have saved the vast majority of my own school work, both GCSE and A Level, which can be shown if necessary to provide examples of successful or incomplete responses to examinations.
