Personal Description:
I have a degree in Pharmacology and a qualified teacher of Science from KS1 to KS5. I am also an examiner; I mark GCSE papers. I am a very hard working individual who is easily motivated and always ready to adapt and learn new skills. Having had various opportunities to carry out a variety of laboratory assessments as key components of my course, I am able to work as an individual or as part of a team. As a part of my degree I developed essential and transferable scientific skills. My project title was 'Synthesis and Biochemical Evaluation of Heat Shock Protein Hsp90 inhibitors on MCF-7 breast cancer cells'. Studies on how drugs are discovered, developed and used to treat disease gave me an understanding of how the human body functions and how drugs can be used to affect these functions. I have experience teaching from KS1 to KS5 and open university students. I enjoy travelling; visited New York, New Jersey, Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Nigeria. I get pleasure from working out at the gym regularly and I love swimming. I also enjoy studying christian books and other inspirational books.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently at an inner city school in Portsmouth. It has 900 students on roll. I have over 6 years of experience working with people with challenging behaviour, dyslexia and autism. Currently I am teaching Key stage 3 and 4. Teaching pure Biology lessons to separate Science; Physics, Chemistry and Biology to core and Additional Science students. For key stage 3 I have followed the QCA guidelines and for key stage 4 the WJEC examination board. I have written schemes of work for year 11 students to cover additional Sciences and rewrote schemes of work to meet the recent curriculum changes key stage 3 and 4. I was also involved in producing resources to be shared in the department about hydrocarbons, polymers, smart materials, ammonia fertilizers and many other kS3 topics.

Prior to this experience my first teaching placement during my PGCE year was at a mixed comprehensive with approximately 900 students on role. I taught Biology, Chemistry and Physics at key stage 3 and team taught for key stage 4. This prepared me well for my second placement where I taught all three Sciences across both key stages. My second placement was also at a mixed comprehensive school with approximately 600 students on roll. I also was involved in Individual Student Assessments (ISA). Additionally as a trainee teacher I regularly was involved in school base activities to encourage students. I was a Student Ambassador for Portsmouth University. It gave me a lot of personal satisfaction and developed my communication skills. I also attended the University of East London gifted and talented day in 2008; which was attended by a number of schools from the borough of Redbridge. It was an inspiring day of learning and fun and I have taken elements from that day into my classroom practice today.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to first of all find out my students weaknesses and turn it into their strengths; I feel that the study of Neuropharmacology as part of my undergraduate degree in Pharmacology was very relevant to teaching. I have a secured subject knowledge with all three Sciences. I also like to bring the best of people, by being patient and understanding. I have the ability to cope and work under pressure, understanding of the challenges that need overcoming to learn, ability to take ownership of material and adapt it to suit the learning styles and approach of individual.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Experience:
Since I have been a student all my life so did not get a chance to tutor. However I have experience to work with young people as a "Tutor" in the state run TRIO program in USA. This job has given me a clear understanding and significance of a good education, promoting effective learning, teaching and personal development. This first hand skill of working with children of school age has made me patient, tolerant and has also given me an ability to respond positively to special educational needs. Having this experience would definitely facilitate me to translate my knowledge better to pupils and that surely would aid them to understand the basic concepts.

I have taught the undergrads in Virginia State University, USA under the state run TRIO program

Tutoring Approach:

open to new ideas, initiator, like the tutee to solve the problem himself, but be a good guide,I believe in teaching patiently and with dedication. My approach to teaching is straightforward and begins with generating questions and curiosity within young people's minds so that they can think well.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and enjoy teaching all subjects, in particular maths and literacy. I strive to make learning interactive and fun for children and get a lot of satisfaction from helping children to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher and work mainly with 7-11 year olds. Prior to qualifying I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, often working on a one-to-one basis with children. I have a good range of teaching methods which I use to help children develop their knowledge and learning skills. I am able to build strong relationships with children, encouraging and leading them to become confident, independent learners. In addition to primary teaching I also have experience of teaching GCSE maths and level 2 adult maths.

Tutoring Approach:

All children are individuals and learn in different ways. I am able to offer a free initial assessment for your child (subject to location) and tailor lessons accordingly. I will always look at what children can do and work with them to discover the gaps in their knowledge and any misconceptions they may have. I feel it is important to set achievable targets and build up children's confidence in their own abilities. Linking the teaching of literacy and maths to other subjects and real life situations makes learning more meaningful to children.

Personal Description:
I have a BSc in Psychology from Leeds University, graded 2:1, an MSc from Bristol University in Nutrition and Public Health, graded distinction, and an Mphil form Cambridge in Public Health graded distinction. I am currently working on my PhD in Public Health, based in Cambridge.

Prior to this, I studied A levels in Biology, Psychology and English Literature, and AS levels in Geography and Photography, all graded A. I am looking to tutor any subject related to these areas, including A-level and undergraduate.

Teaching Experience:

some tutoring experience and I have spent a number of years both learning and working in an academic environment, which required working within groups of fellow students, completing learning activities, developing presentations and explaining concepts to those requiring further insight.

Tutoring Approach:

I find I learn best by attempting to understand a concept fully and by placing it in a relevant context, rather than by learning off by heart. I would hope to help a tutee learn by these methods. I think that learning the context and relevance of a concept can make a subject more interesting, and hence more memorable.

I also find breaking down work into manageable chunks and using various techniques (colour coding, acronyms etc.) can assist memory, and my background in Psychology means I have some understanding of how to apply these.

Personal Description:
I graduated from University of Leeds as Masters in Bio-science in 2011. I have worked as a research technician (Faculty of biological sciences at University of Leeds) since my graduation. I have been tutoring on weekends while I was working as a research technician, as I love helping students with their grades. I have demonstrated undergraduates in the laboratory and helped them understand science from a pracical point of view. I have decided to dedicate myself as a private tutor for sometime from beginning of march. Every student needs certain kind of guidance which is different from other fellow student in his/her class. Understanding the nature of the student and helping them with their difficulties is what I do. I am a very patient girl and very good with adoloscents with their behaviour. From my experinece of tutoring and having a brother who is appearing for A level this year, I have gathered that teenagers are more comfortable taking help from tutors than parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have earlier taught students of age group 11-16 and helped them gain confidence in their weak subjects.
I was a research technician at University of Leeds so I had to demonstrate and teach them how to do things.
I love science and have higher education in field of biological science,so I am efficient and capable to teach kids the basics of science.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel tutoring is all about understanding the way the student grasps the concepts and implements. I prefer the fun-way of learning and remembering things. In this way the student remembers the basics and never forgets rather than practicing without understanding main concept. I feel once you make the student comfortable and make them realize how they should approach particular subjects, the student develops his own skills of learning. Its all about interacting with the student and finding a way so as how to make a student get intersted in particular subject. The moment the student is interested in the subject, its just matter of time that they start learning and help themselves.

Personal Description:
I am a masters student currently studying towards a Masters in Public Health Nutrition at Queen Margaret University, and a science graduate with a Bachelor of Science, Open from the Open University specialising in molecular and cell biology with additional interests in psychology, neuroscience, infectious disease and chemistry.

I love science, especially life sciences such as biology and health science, and spend a lot of my personal time researching new developments and techniques in scientific investigation. As a tutor, this means I have a background understanding to help you to understand how we know what we know about biology, psychology and the sciences in general. My enthusiasm guarantees that no tutoring session will ever be monotonous or boring and my alternative approaches to learning, memorisation and revision will help you to achieve your full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring other adult learners online, I have also tutored at Intermediate 2 level and Higher as well as university level and take great pride in frequently improving marks significantly enough to take several students from failing the main exam to a B or above at resit! I also have every day tutoring experience dealing with the thousand and one questions put to me by my six year old son!

I also toured with The Edinburgh International Science Festival as a science communicator working with children from primary 4 through to 7 in 2013 as part of their Generation Science Tour, I feel this has given me a valuable insight into how to make science accessible and fun.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an interactive approach and try to find the best method for each student. For some this may be drawing, diagrams or flow charts, others the use of modeling to help with understanding, some may learn more effectively using text books or written tutoring techniques. I also make use of a wide range of freely available resources such as videos and interactive quizzes to reinforce the learning process. All of this is provided in line with the curriculum for excellence requirements.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated, conscientious teacher with 29 years of teaching experience both within the independent and state sector. I have taught children from 3 to 13 years old in various subjects with different abilities. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills. I am dependable, responsible and extremely well organised. I am open to new ideas and learning strategies. I am caring and personable and believe every child matters. I aim to make a difference to every child and ensure that he/she becomes independent and self-confident with the skills and tools required to develop. I have the ability and resources to assess each child and then put together a progamme and timetable of the areas that need attention. I provide regular re-inforcement and praise and give feedback to the child and parents.
I have extensive knowledge of the educational curriculum and have had much experience of SATS papers and Common Entrance examinations.
Being a mother of 2 boys I know how children behave and how to get the best from them.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently providing 1:1 numeracy and literacy tuition in two Leeds schools. This involves one hour per child for a 10 week programme. I also run private tuition lessons from my own home or visiting children.
I am also a supply teacher for local teaching agencies.
Prior to this I worked from February 2000- September 2010 at Gateways School, Harewood, Leeds an independent school for girls. I was a form teacher for years 3,4,5 and 6 but specialised in RE and Latin.
From September 1997- August 2000 I was a supply teacher for Leeds Girls' High School, Leeds Grammar School and various state schools.
From September 1994 - August 1997 I was a form teacher at Beech House School, Headingley, Leeds.
From September 1990 to 1995 whilst having 2 boys of my own I taught various children from the ages of 4-11
From September 986 to January 1990 I was a form teacher for years 5 and 6 at Leeds Girls'High School

Tutoring Approach:

The main purpose of one to one tuition is to diagnose and address gaps in a child's learning and any misconceptions which may be deep rooted. It also provides a powerful opportunity to address personal and internalised processes and involves equipping the learner with appropriate strategies, new ways of thinking about a problem.
My first task is to find out from the parent/s what are their concerns about their child and what they are expecting. I would provide details of my extensive experience in providing 1:1 tuition and the success of achieving a programme that suits the individual needs of the child. A programme of lessons would be planned and then delivered using the following lesson format: -
*sharing objectives and learning outcomes with the child,
*identifying the pupils' knowledge, strategies and skills,
*modelling the process to be developed by talking it through,
*allowing the pupil to explore the activity independently as I observe and interact identifying the strengths and areas of misconception for attention and discussion
* revise the work, refining the child's knowledge, understanding and skills
* provide an opportunity to consolidate learning through further practice and discussion
* child reflects on the progress made towards the learning objective, the strategies used and how the skills and knowledge can be applied back in the classroom
*set targets

I would plan a range of varied activities to engage the pupil and support learning. I would provide opportunities for the pupil to talk, rehearse ideas and ask questions. The key to good practice is to praise successes to boost self confidence. I have a thorough understanding of what the pupil needs to be able to do to move forward.

Personal Description:
I am a keen all round biologist with a particular interest in genetics. I conducted my PhD research at the University of Birmingham, which was focused on the genetic basis of Wolfram Syndrome, a rare inherited neurodegenerative disease.

Following completion of my research I moved to Aberdeenshire and am currently working flexibly from home, whilst dedicating my spare time to the study of canine behaviour and training.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst new to home tutoring I have gained experience during my time at university tutoring undergraduates and mentoring research students in the laboratory. I have previous experience working as a classroom assistant to children with special educational needs and have also participated in the Student Associate Scheme in England, working on placement in the Science Dept. of Camborne School with secondary and post-16 students.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an informal but organised approach to tutoring with the aim of providing a comfortable and non-pressured learning environment, where students feel able and encouraged to ask questions and build confidence at a pace that is comfortable for them.

Personal Description:
I'm a young, open-minded, Italian girl.
Even if I graduated in Life Sciences, I always had a particular talent for languages.
I love reading and writing, so much that I made a regular activity out of it, managing a website of book reviews.

Teaching Experience:

I spent the last year (2012/2013) tutoring a French boy - 12 years old - who just arrived in England, therefore not able to speak English at all. After one month of my tutoring, he was able to successfully pass the admission test at the local Grammar School.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is mostly about communication.
When tutoring, I make a point in being the most clear and open-minded as possible, to make it not just easy, but also entertaining to learn the daily lesson.
In addition to that, most of my effort is into finding the best way for the children to self-improve and organize their learning method, so to reach a new level of independence, even when learning their least beloved subject.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my PhD in neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. My studies culminated in the generation of a new model of decision making. This work has recently been accepted by the Journal of Neuroscience and, subject to review, will be published in Summer 2014. It is my genuine hope that this new model will be accepted as the standard textbook model and help contribute to our understanding of a number of neurological disorders.

I also studied Natural Sciences as an undergraduate at Cambridge, specialising in Neuroscience with modules in Experimental Psychology, Physiology, Biology of Cells and Evolution.

Teaching Experience:

I supervised Neuroscience undergraduate students at Cambridge during the course of my PhD.

I have publicly presented my work at a number of talks and seminars where clear communication to a general audience was paramount.

I also have experience tutoring both GCSE, and A-level biology.

I would also feel comfortable teaching many science-related fields as well as 11+ and Oxbridge interview preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the right tutor can inspire a lifelong interest in their students, and I hope to convey my passion for the sciences to my tutees. In my opinion, the best tutor assesses their students' needs and tailors the material to their requirements. I think its not uncommon for academics to fail in this area. However, I feel one of my greatest skills is the ability to convey complex concepts tailored to the needs of the individual.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Jared, an enthusiastic 22 year old recent graduate with a first class degree in Biomedicine. I have been learning biology and life sciences for the past 10 years and hope to continue when I start a neuroscience masters. Having not stopped starting secondary school I am educated in all three sciences including maths up to GCSE level, chemistry and maths up to AS level and Biology to A level, and am confident at providing tuition in all of these areas.

Currently I am going over A level maths and chemistry and wouldn't hesitate to provide tutoring in these areas if needed. Additionally I am on the receiving end of tuition, having started learning German and am looking at starting BSL lessons in the near future.

Based in the Basildon area, I am able to travel within the local area using either my quick set of legs, my somewhat rusty mountain bike or good old public transport. I am free throughout the daytime at both weekdays and weekends, however my weekdays are likely to be filled soon, but evening tuition is not a problem

Teaching Experience:

Previously I have mentored several students who struggled with their GCSE maths and science and required the necessary C grades to gain entry into College. Whilst at university I helped local A level biology and/or chemistry students gain top grades by filling in any gaps in their knowledge and clarifying parts of the curricula they were not confident with.

Job wise, I am pursuing a teaching assistant position and currently volunteer in a local school science department, where I help prepare for science lessons and assist in demonstrations. As a result I am still in the know how regarding exam boards curriculum

Tutoring Approach:

My approach focusses on restoring confidence and making sure students maintain high expectations. I find exposure to exam papers, although thankfully not in such strict conditions, is incredibly effective in preparing students for their exams and helps overcome those pesky exam fears. Knowing the curricula is great by marks on exam papers matter, and it is a great feeling to know that when you sit the exam you know what to expect and how to answer correctly.

As science is a visual subject I try to add as many practical and integrative elements to my tutoring, which I find makes the subject matter much more memorable and less dry.

I am open to tutoring/answering any questions via skype/email/phone.

Personal Description:
I live in Cheshire with my partner and three children. I started teaching in 2001 aged 22 and have taught in London, Thailand, Sussex and Cheshire, across all Primary year groups.

When I get the chance to relax I enjoy playing guitar, exercise and good movies! I also enjoy sketching, designing and creating, by hand and digitally.

Teaching Experience:

13 years Primary teaching experience

Responsibilities include Primary Manager, Leader of English, Leader of Maths, Senior Leadership Team, Phase Leader

Taught in every Primary Year group

Spent 3 years teaching and leading at school named 'England's top Primary 2013'

During my thirteen years as a teacher and school leader, I have gained experience of teaching the whole Primary age range; Nursery, Year 1,2,3,4,5, and 6.

I have experience of managing a Primary school, leading the learning for the whole school. In addition, I have held a number of Senior Leader roles, in state and private schools. This has given me an in-depth knowledge of how children progress throughout their school life and a strong understanding of the whole learning process.

I have been the whole school Leader of Reading & Writing at two separate schools. This responsibility involves planning, implementing and monitoring reading, writing, spelling and handwriting strategies for all children at the school. I have also held the same position for Maths at two different schools.

I began my career teaching Year 1 at a school in South London. I next taught internationally at Harrow International School in Bangkok. Returning to London, I taught for three years at Fox Primary school, recently rated as 'England's Top Primary School' - telegraph.co.uk/education/leaguetables/10514182/Primary-school-league-tables-2013-Books-and-bees-at-Englands-top-primary.html I also held the responsibility for English and then Maths whilst there.
Moving out of London, I taught at two schools in West sussex, holding a variety of responsibilities. I currently teach at a school in Newcastle Under Lyme, near Stoke.

Tutoring Approach:

I plan interesting learning tasks, personalised to each child's individual needs. I am able to quickly develop positive relationships with children. I establish where the child is at with their learning through assessment, school reports and discussion with parents, before planning a clear program of study and setting challenging yet achievable targets. I believe the best learning takes place when the learning is fun yet clear expectations are set.

Personal Description:
I have a BSc in medicinal chemistry (1st class Hons)

This means that aside from losing myself in research papers and a lab for four years, I can give sound advice on personal development, exam technique and revision skills.
Having studied medicinal chemistry, a large part of my degree covered human physiology, disease and drugs which is why I also offer biology as a secondary tuition.

Above A-level my speciality is in organic and synthetic chemistry, I can help with all aspects including mechanistic rationale, retrosynthesis and enantio/ stereoselective syntheses as well as the all important dissertation/ viva.

Academic transcripts or examples of my work are available on request.

I'm easy going, clinical and analytical which are all important traits for good academic progression.

I am willing to travel for sessions although travel expenses will need to be covered.

Teaching Experience:

Creating a colourful life - Loughborough University
These courses ran to educate children between primary and A-level in various aspects of inorganic chemistry. Topics covered were designed to show the diversity of chemistry applied industrially to things such as thermochromic paints, fingerprinting and trace detection.

A-level chemistry tuition - Private tuition 2012 - 2014
I have already tutored a small number of students who have gone on to successfully complete there A - levels with progression to UK universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe strongly that no two people learn in the same manner; while some respond well to repeat readings by themselves, other people learn well through lecturing and taking notes. It's fundamental to get an understanding of this before commencing tutoring, personally i liked having spoken word followed up by practice exam questions to apply the knowledge.

Second to actually tutoring the academic aspects of science, I emphasise the importance of good exam technique. A large part of any tutoring would be aimed at ensuring the student understands what an exam question is asking and what is relevant in response - a sound knowledge with knowing how to apply it is a key to success.
