Personal Description:
I have an easygoing and pleasant demeanour, a nice sense of humour, and I generally get on well with my tutees. Although I like to have a friendly relationship with my tutee, I try to employ a professional manner at all times. I am a man in his early, middling years, who enjoys seeing others fulfil their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher, who has taught privately one to one for a number of years. I have primarily taught English on a one to one basis for tutees who are preparing for their GCSE and "A" level examinations, but I am also experienced in helping tutees improve their literacy skills from a young age. I also have a wealth of experience of teaching English as a Foreign language on a one to one basis. I have taught in a number of language schools over the years, and at one point started a language school in southern Italy. I have considerable experience teaching English up to "A" level standard in secondary education, and I have over fifteen years experience to draw upon.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one teaching, by its nature, is very intense, so it is very important to introduce variety as much as possible. A mixture of written work, as well as oral work, if required is essential to keep the tutee focused and interested in what you are teaching. It helps, sometimes, after an intense session, fot the tutee to have a short break, before continuing.

Personal Description:
I am a professionally trained actor. I have written for numerous publications, with stories and poems published regularly. I am confident with public speaking, since I have been performing in diverse venues for nearly 10 years. I have an MA in Acting and an MA in Theatre & Performance Studies. I have professional training in elocution, pronunciation as well as accent and dialect work.

I am a keen footballer, and believe in the importance of keeping fit and eating healthily. I also love travel, gardening, fixing computers and watching and critiquing films and theatre.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private Tutor since 2007, and am a member of a number of private tutoring companies. I have tutored in English Language, English Literature, Speech, Drama, Acting, Philosophy, Entrance Exams, and most primary subjects. I have tutored Students from all ages and abilities; including adults and teenagers, as well as younger pupils, and pupils with learning difficulties

From Aug 2009 to May 2010 I was a Learning Support Assistant, DeBeauvoir School, Hackney, London.

Main duties included ensuring that students with learning difficulties are both kept up to speed with the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Other duties include:
- To provide full time academic and pastoral support to individual learners with learning difficulties, and/or behavioural and social problems.
- To provide academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- To encourage learners to pursue further academic or vocational education.
- To provide behavioural support in class and to teaching staff at all times.

July 2009 - August 2009 I was SEN Assistant at Kentish Town CE School, London

Main duties include ensuring that students with physical and/or cognitive complications are given the extra support they require within the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Jan 2009 - June 2009 I was a Cover Supervisor, Neat Education & Select Education, Sheffield

Responsibilities are that of a Supply Teacher, being responsible for the learning and conduct of a whole class of students. Maintaining discipline and focus as well as being at all times a strong leader and role model were essential at all times.

Other duties include:
- Academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- Monitoring attendance of learners and set appropriate targets.
- Invigilating examinations and mark work.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that Tutoring is first about personal connection. Any learning can only be achieved given a certain level of trust, which must be established in order to create a solid platform from which further learning can then flourish. Younger students are most open to absorbing information and should have the chance to take academic information and guidance from a range of people. This enhances the educational experiences and broadens the horizons of a student.

Having myself struggled with poor teachers, or unwieldy subject matter, I know that, with the right teachers, such areas can come alive. More clinical approaches to tutoring further separate students from the learning process. Having experienced one-to-one tuition myself, I have seen the many positives and potential pitfalls the system can bring. These experiences galvanize me and help me in my own tutoring. I relish taking what I have learnt, and the exciting methods by which I have learnt it, and passing that on to other students.

Regardless of the level taught, it is impossible to make real progress unless the student first has engagement and interest in the subject. I see my task as tutor as a process of invigorating the material for those studying.

Personal Description:
I have five years private tutoring experience and love to teach.

I am disciplined, empathetic, caring and highly motivated to engage with each individual's needs. I consistently get excellent results with my students.

My main academic area is Embodied Cognition, in particular the intersection between Philosophy, Neuroscience, Art and Design. I am currently writing on these subjects, publishing in various politics, science, art/culture and philosophy publications. Furthermore I'm working on the libretto (script) for a new opera.

My interests extend broadly through Sociology, Literature, Theology and World Religions, Philosophy of Maths, as well as a great many other things.

Teaching Experience:

With 5 years of private tutoring experience, I am a specialist in catering to my student's individual study needs. My students have ranged from those completing their A-Level and International Baccalaureate, to university students, post graduates and those in business.

Patiently and methodically coaching students throughout their studies, my tutoring experience includes:
- Helping with difficult dissertations and assignments/coursework
- Exam and study technique including memory improvement
- Comprehension
- Working with those who have low confidence
- Working with those with special learning needs (including Giftedness) and individual circumstances


Case studies of recent students include:

Gerald:
In his mock examinations Gerald's scores were unsatisfactory to himself and his teachers. After quickly isolating the area of study technique that Gerald was struggling with we were able to brainstorm solutions and bring him two grades higher in his final scores.

Anna:
A Philosophy degree student, Anna suffered from extremely low confidence and debilitating anxiety regarding her comprehension and argument formulation. Working together throughout the last year of her degree, we built her confidence slowly. Anna has now gone on to gain her masters in Philosophy at St. Andrews.

Excellent references on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm passionate about learning and knowledge, as well as about the diverse ways to learn and the different directions a subject can be approached from. I believe my suitability for tutoring is much enriched by this, and by my realisation that everything is fun and interesting.

I strongly believe that anyone can grasp and enjoy their subject. Often this requires sensitivity to the student's needs; perhaps to make the subject tangible, accessible or relate it to something that the student finds of interest.

My experience; successfully tutoring individuals to an extremely high standard; has led me to grow and develop my skills as a practical, reliable and exuberant guide. As someone of many interests and capabilities, I offer a comprehensive body of knowledge of subjects, as well as a sensitive, analytical and transformative teaching method.

Do contact me, I would love to help.

Personal Description:
I am a 23 year old graduate from the University of Nottingham. I spent the last year working as an English Language teacher, working in Spain and Guatemala to practice my Spanish. I am now starting a masters at the London School of Economics in International Relations. In the future I hope to work for an international relations think tank or as a diplomat.

Teaching Experience:

I have a Trinity Cert Tesol - Teaching English as a Foreign Language qualification and 1 year of teaching experience in Spain, Guatemala and London. I have also been a history tutor for the past year in my spare time.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always enjoyed learning because my teachers, for the most part, made it fun so I'm keen to do the same with my students. I don't think anything that's worth studying has to be boring and I'm dedicated to making my students learn almost without realising they are doing it.

Personal Description:
I currently work part-time for an MP in Westminster as a researcher. I have varied interests, and later in my career intend to work in international development, especially surrounding the role of education.

My last degree, and MSc in Contemporary India, was a multidisciplinary social sciences degree, incorporating politics, economics, anthropology, international relations and statistics. My dissertation focused on English Language education and social aspiration.

In my spare time I enjoy training for athletics (middle distance and cross country), playing and listening to music, and cycling.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English as a foreign language in India to degree-level students, formulating my own teaching materials. As part of my teaching, I included cultural and geographic content to help prepare students in rural and small town India for employment with multi-national companies.

I have also volunteered as a mentor with the Cardinal Hume Centre in Westminster, coaching young homeless and unemployed people with their English and ICT skills, job searching, and providing motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am new to tutoring, though throughout my school and university life, have helped relatives and peers with their studies. At Cambridge, I formed study groups with students in the same course and taught and conveyed parts of the course other had missed, or struggled with.

As I intend to qualify as a full time teacher in the near future, I undertand the importance of preparation. When tutoring, I plan to listen to each student's needs and prepare appropriate assistance and guidance.

Having completed much revision for my degrees and A-levels, I can share my strategies to revise work previously covered, using time management and goals. If a student is able to guide their own learning, I will support and encourage this approach, aiding their independence.

Personal Description:
Having taken a first in English at the University of York last year, I spent the next few months teaching English in Swaziland. English has long been my chosen subject; I won prizes at school (Winchester College), and narrowly missed a stared first at York. Music has also been formative to me. I was a music scholar at school, and won a choral award to Magdalen Oxford. A stage career is my dream, which I start chasing with a two year professional acting course at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School (starting in September).

Teaching Experience:

I have just returned from teaching IB English (standard and higher levels) for five months at the United World College of Southern Africa (Swaziland).

My tutoring career is fledgling, but I have about fifty hours recent experience (mainly GCSE history).

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring allows me to exercise my twin passions: arts subjects and acting. I believe there is an aspect of performance in teaching; I can communicate my enthusiasm, and make learning both interesting and exciting.

Personal Description:
I am an English, Maths, History and Science tutor who specialises in teaching children at both Primary School and GCSE level. I am currently an Undergraduate Student studying Sociology at the University of Nottingham and I believe that my age, adaptability and having undertaken GCSEs and A-levels not too long ago helps me relate to younger students and understand where they may be having difficulties.

Studied at The Latymer School, Haselbury Road, Edmonton, London N9 9TN from 2005 to present.

From 2007 to 2010, I studied nine GCSE subjects and I achieved six A-star Grades in Business Studies, Core Science, English Language, English Literature, History and Mathematics and three A Grades in Additional Science, Drama and French respectively.

My specialist subjects include English Literature (achieved an A* at GCSE and B at A-level), English Language (achieved an A* at GCSE), Mathematics (achieved an A* at GCSE), History (achieved an A* at GCSE and A at A-level) and Science (A* in Additional Science GCSE and A in Core Science GCSE).

I am currently studying Sociology at the University of Nottingham.

Teaching Experience:

- Work Placement as a Classroom Assistant for two weeks at Garfield Primary School, Arnos Grove
- Regularly tutor two younger brothers
- Been a private tutor since February 2012

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is student-centred. I believe that each student has a unique way of learning and understanding. As a tutor, I try to relate to the student and see through their eyes what they might find complicated. I cover the individual topic with the student, placing emphasis on the problem areas and then ask them to explain back to me what I taught them. I then use exercises, essays and past papers are then necessary to test the student's knowledge and to familiarise them with the format of each exam. The whole process is very interactive and I encourage students to stop me if clarification is needed and try to get them talking about the subject more comfortably.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from Oxford University (Christ Church) with a BA (Hons) in History of Art, and am now reading for an MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute. Aside from studying I am learning Italian, enjoy playing piano and keeping up to date with current exhibitions, plays and concerts. I travel as widely as possible and enjoy enriching my academic work with the unique experiences and case studies such travel may afford.

Teaching Experience:

Since August this year I have been tutoring a number of clients in London at KS3 and GCSE level, in English, Sciences and Mathematics.
Additionally, during my A Level year I tutored of GCSE students, gaining a 100% A -C pass rate.

Tutoring Approach:

Having attended some of the most academically intensive institutions in the country, I am well suited to provide academic support and guidance to those wishing to improve their achievement, from primary to degree level.
I believe that the role of a private tutor is to create a tailor made, interactive and stimulating environment in order to help students grow and explore within their subject. I believe instilling confidence is key to this approach - I am a patient, friendly and approachable tutor and work hard to encourage an atmosphere in which honest discussion and a lack of self consciousness when learning are paramount. I provide support for all aspects of learning, from discussing homework to improving core skills.

I am familiar with exam board requirements for each subject, and as a tutor work towards success in exams, but also towards a greater enrichment above and beyond curricula.

Personal Description:
I am a confident, diligent and sociable person, with a wide knowledge of world history, and specialising in American and South-East Asian history and culture. I hold a double first class Bachelors degree in History and American Studies from Canterbury Christ Church University, and have had many years experience leading youth projects such as youth councils, young persons' scrutiny forums (YPSF) and have acted as a liasion on several historical and cultural preservation projects such as the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) and the Church House Preservation Committee.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience as a teaching assistant to KS3 and KS4 level history at a state secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a holistic approach to the teaching of history, ensuring that the student becomes engaged within a fuller understanding of the period being studied. As a former student and teach of history, I realise that the principal block to a tutee's understanding of historical concepts is a lack of immersion within the relevant time-frames and thus an inability to fully comprehend why certain actions were taken, and the wider effect this had.

Thus in my approach I am firm believer that it is as important for every student to understand to a higher level than that offered by the current state curriculum the context of the period they are studying. As a consequence I offer tailored introductions to said period's culture, economy, religious and political setting, and even physical geography.

Furthermore, I offer the necessary skills to craft this knowledge into well-reasoned, informed essays. My intimate knowledge of the state education system and beyond has imbued me with the ability to gauge how assignments will be assessed and thus I can work with students not only on improving their knowledge, but showcasing this in highly-marked, structured and coherent written forms.

I use a number of methods to achieve this, including homework assignments, but also using character adoption, audio-visual aids and a mixture of written and verbal questions of varying length and form.

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:
Hi! I'm an Oxford graduate with a 2:1 in English Language and Literature. I graduated in July, and since then I have been looking for interesting ways to spend my time whilst also raising some money for further study. Tutoring appealed to me at once as a rewarding way to put the skills that I learnt during my degree to good use. Reading English at Oxford has honed my critical thinking, analytical abilities and study skills. Last year I also co-wrote a novel which has just been published in the UK, which really deepened my understanding of how to write effectively. I'd love to tutor others and help them to develop these skills too! In my spare time, I love to read, write fiction, and I also work as a sub-editor at an online short story magazine. My main address is in EN4, but I am also happy to tutor in Oxford.

Teaching Experience:

In October this year I successfully completed an assessment for the selective tutoring agency Blue Tutors. During the assessment I had to demonstrate my tutoring ability to a trained assessor, who described my communication skills as 'excellent'.
In my final term at Oxford, I volunteered with Schools Plus, a program which runs after school tuition sessions for struggling students in areas of economic disadvantage. I spent half a term working with GCSE English students, tutoring them on an individual basis in the run up to their January modules. As part of the selection process for the program, I also attended tutoring training.
When I was in the 6th form (in 2009), I also volunteered as a classroom assistant in my school. I was working with students who were having difficulty with essay-based subjects like History and English. I worked with two students in their History classes, helping them to understand the work they were set in class and working through it with them. I also had to use my knowledge of French to help one student who had not yet learnt to speak fluent English, translating the teacher's instructions for her and helping her with words she did not understand. Also between 2009-10, I helped to run two after-school classes for Key Stage 2 pupils, one in Literacy and Art and another in Drama. This involved planning and delivering lessons to classes of about 5-10 children, and keeping them engaged with the topics they were learning through activities designed to both teach and entertain.

Tutoring Approach:

My experience of tutoring in the past has shown me the importance of patience and respect in teaching. Especially in essay-based subjects, it is crucial that a teacher allows their pupils space to develop their own ideas, and respects their independent thought. Learning by rote has only limited usefulness: the best way to excel at a subject is to understand it, so I always explain concepts as fully as possible and move at the tutee's pace, making sure that they have properly grasped each concept or issue before moving on to the next. My Schools Plus training emphasised the idea that the goal of tutoring is to help a student to help themselves, enabling them to tackle problems rather than solving things for them. I think that this is fantastic advice, and it is a rule which I always try to bear in mind when tutoring.

Personal Description:
I am a degree educated tutor with over 5 years working in industry. I enjoy tutoring all subjects, but specialise in Maths, IT, History, Economics and Business Studies. Living in between Blackheath, Lewisham and Greenwich, I am happy to travel up to 10 miles to tutor, as I believe that by igniting interest in education, each child can reach their full potential in every subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have been in childcare and education for over 10 years, including experience as a Tutor, Sunday School Teacher, Activities Assistant and Nanny

Tutoring Approach:

Each child learns in a different way, and this is definitely true for each subject. From Humanities to Mathematics based subjects, I like to teach cause and effect methods to try and help the student to truly understand the subject, not just learn it for an exam.

Personal Description:
I am a private tutor based in south Liverpool, available to give lessons between July and October 2014. I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Oxford, studying English Language and Literature. I specialise in teaching English, History, Religious Studies, and Philosophy.

Teaching Experience:

I am a recent A Level student with a good knowledge of the syllabuses and expectations of exam boards. I have experience as a youth group leader between 2010 and 2013.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a rigorous and systematic approach to tutoring at all levels, combining a targeted understanding of exam skills with a broader knowledge of the subjects I teach. I recognise that the skills required to produce a truly distinctive essay or analysis are often drawn from a wider base of knowledge than that which can be provided through school education alone. As a tutor I aim to teach my students how to think independently, be inquisitive and original, and develop a fluid and intelligent written style which will distinguish their answers from all others.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying History at Cambridge University and live in southwest London. I love playing and watching sport, particularly rugby and football, and spent a year after school teaching both sports (as well as some academic subjects) at a school called Dilworth in New Zealand. I really enjoy teaching and particularly the one-on-one focus that tutoring allows!

Teaching Experience:

As well as the year spent in New Zealand teaching rugby, football, Maths and History to 11-13 year olds, I have considerable other experience. I have worked for a combined total of 5 weeks for Lanterna, a company which offers revision courses for students aged 17-18 studying the IB, where I have taught History, Maths and Environmental Systems. In addition I have done a lot of private tuition in groups of one or two, both for Lanterna and privately. So I have experience teaching a variety of subjects to students of different ages and backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it is essential to create a relaxed environment in which the tutee feels comfortable to admit that they might not follow an explanation. To this end, combining teaching with occasional breaks is actually conducive to better learning. In addition, I favour a tutoring style which is more of a dialogue than a lecture, in which a tutee contributes his/her own knowledge or understanding of a topic.
