Personal Description:
I`m passionate about mathematics and I love teaching it. While I understand that students and their parents are usually looking for a tutor to improve their grades (and my students do get high grades and get into top universities) I also believe it's important to concentrate on understanding as well as learning. Exam success is greatly helped by understanding where the mathematics comes from and how it is used.

My philosophy is "more than higher grades". I believe it is not enough simply to do well at A level, students need to be given the tools to succeed at university. To that end I take a very full interest in their education generally. As one student recently put it, I am "so much more than just a maths tutor". For example I give guidance and support with university entrance, including the UCAS personal statement and Oxbridge applications and interviews.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over twenty years, at top-ranking schools including Charterhouse in Surrey and Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, USA. I have been a full-time private tutor for over eight years, helping more than 200 students achieve higher grades in their exams. That's in excess of 6,000 hours of teaching.

I have taught almost every module in Mathematics and Further Mathematics for each of the four English A-level specifications (Edexcel, AQA, OCR and MEI). I have prepared candidates for the Oxford MAT exam and the STEP exam (for entry to Cambridge, Warwick and Imperial.) I have been an examiner for Edexcel, AQA and Cambridge Assessments (OCR).

I was a Kitchener Scholar at the University of Cambridge, where I was awarded an Entrance Prize by Trinity College and the Philpott Prize for a first class examination performance. I took a second degree with the Open University, where I won the Leslie Walshaw award for scoring 100% in the examination in Mathematical Models and Methods. (In fact, I achieved first class passes in every assignment and examination for every course I took throughout the degree.)

I believe strongly in the importance of lifelong learning and continuous professional development. I spent a year at the University of York studying second year Physics, where I also developed an interest in Economics (and have taught it at undergraduate level). I've grown my business skills as an Enterprise Fellow at York St John University, and I've taken examinations in accounting at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (I scored 92% in Financial Accounting). I'm motivated in part by personal interest, but also by the desire to be able to give my students better advice and better teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is to make the subject as simple and as enjoyable as possible. My approach produces outstanding results: one of my students came to me in March of his A2 year with E's and U's in his mathematics modules. He resat his whole A level after three months tuition with me and was awarded an A* and got into his first choice university, Manchester, to read mathematics. In 2013, 70% of my students achieved an A or an A* in their exams.

Personal Description:
I am a 30 year-old prize-winning Masters graduate in Mathematics from Oxford University, and I also hold Top Candidate Notifications for my performances in A-level maths and further maths, and another such notification for my performance in GCSE Statistics. I am in my seventh year of tutoring full-time.

I offer tuition in mathematics at each of the following levels: KS3/GCSE/AS/A2/AEA/Oxford Entrance Exam/Oxbridge Interview Practice/STEP. I have a recent CRB Enhanced Disclosure.

Teaching Experience:

I have six full years experience as a full-time private tutor. My role addresses the pitfalls of a mainstream education by truly individualising it, and is perfected through thousands of hours of experience of striving to achieve precisely that. My thirst for knowledge has allowed me to develop a true understanding of mathematical concepts: I have frequently played the role of the consultant throughout my mathematical career, have been able to help my peers and students avoid the pitfalls usually associated with difficult ideas and am able to explain things from numerous angles.

Tutoring Approach:

Traversing the mathematical landscape is an art; it can be a very uncomfortable environment for some. I find it so important to make my students feel at ease and to find confidence in their maths and so important to be friendly and patient. I am not a suited, booted assessor, nor old-school, to be frank! The feedback I've received indicates that I am very successful in creating a supportive atmosphere that encourages discussion, openness and good effort.

As well as engaging with students in this manner, my aim as a maths tutor is to get my students to 'think mathematically'; to uncover the inherent simplicity in methods and concepts and to truly understand what is being worked with. It is my business to focus thought, prevent confusion and stimulate the development of good ideas. I employ illuminating explanations and navigate sticking points, and as a result maths should be considerably easier to handle under my guidance.

As well as offering support for those with difficulties or specific grade aspirations at standard levels, I can also challenge the very able as intensely as they could hope for, introducing them to the mindset, rigour and practise required for the more challenging AEA and STEP papers. At university I was lucky enough to find myself one to whom others turned with maths troubles: I have been depended on to explain advanced maths effectively for years. I am sure this accounts for two more areas of particularly positive feedback I've received as a tutor: in explaining concepts and in effectively dealing with problems as they arise.

I provide tuition either at my home in central Cheltenham, or at the homes of students within a 30-mile radius of it (dependent on particular location).

I am here to provide a complete teaching experience that in addition to ironing out difficulties and providing excellent exam preparation as matter of course, at no extra effort on the part of the student introduces them to the thought processes and insights of the professional mathematician. I have the STRONGEST sense of duty of care to my students and want every one who I work with to exceed their own expectations and the expectations of others and to walk away feeling truly proud of their achievements.

Personal Description:
Hi all, I'm Joanna, I'm 24-years-old and I am looking to do some mathematics and English language/literature tutoring over the summer months. Teaching and inspiring others to learn and excel is one my great passions.

I am currently studying Dramatic Writing at New York University on a full scholarship. I achieved a First Class undergraduate degree at the University of St Andrews, majoring in English literature and minoring in maths and psychology. I have A-levels in English literature (A*), History (A) and Maths (A*), from City of London School for Girls, which I attended on an English literature scholarship. I would ideally like to tutor kids aged 10-14 as well as older teens taking their GCSE's or A-levels and who need help with Maths or English literature.

Teaching Experience:

At school I mentored a 12-year-old girl in maths. We met for an hour once a week and I would show her step-by-step how to solve problems she'd struggled with in class or for homework, and then either make up similar questions or find them from her textbook and work through them with her very patiently. She began to like maths more, improved and gained confidence as the weeks went on.
Over my gap year I tutored a fifteen-year-old girl in maths, Spanish and English GCSE's, working through past papers and setting textbook exercises for homework.

Tutoring Approach:

I would make sure I knew the details of my tutees' school syllabuses and courses so I could cover all the topics and focus on my tutee's weaknesses and the areas that they feel less confident about. I would set them homework every week in these areas which would take them from 20 minutes to an hour depending on how much they need, and then I would go through it with them.
I'm very keen to help people improve and to help people enjoy Maths and English. I would make sure to explain everything very clearly, patiently and thoroughly, give useful study tips and techniques which might help with exams and make the experience as fun as possible.

Personal Description:
From an early age I have been extremely enthusiastic about mathematics and since leaving education, and before I chose to pursue a career in education, I have been fascinated by learning and problem solving. I am currently a teacher in a new school in Hackney, East London. The college is for 14-18 year olds so I specialise in GCSE and A-Level maths teaching. We cater for a range of different backgrounds and abilities which requires the staff to have a wide ranging skill-set. I have previously taught for 5 full years, including 2 years at a 4-18 international school, and have 3 years teaching experience in the UK. My previous school was an independent international school. In all my years as a teacher I have taught GCSE classes and have come to have a sound knowledge of both AQA and Edexcel curriculums. I am also aware that GCSEs serve 2 purposes - one to gain a specific skill set and acquire subject knowledge, the other to achieve a prestigious and important qualification. I have worked in business for several years since completing a maths masters degree at Leeds University. As a relatively new teacher I have a fresh perspective on current barriers to learning and misconceptions within my chosen subject.

Teaching Experience:

1 year working in East London, 2 years overseas in the Dominican Republic (students are 95% native Spanish speakers), 3 years in England, 1 year PGCE training incorporating placements at 2 schools in Louth (North East Lincolnshire), trained at Lincoln BGUC. I am currently curriculum leader for maths at my college and have been acting head of department at my previous school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the key to learning is presenting a new topic in a way that the learner can engage with best. I would aim to break a complex problem down into smaller more manageable parts. Maths is a subject where each new concept is just a collection of previously learnt skills or techniques used in a specific way. I would visit the house of the tutee under the supervision of a parent. Also, if acceptable, I would try to involve a parent in the tuition process so that they can work with the tutee at a later date, if they thought it would help. I am happy to set additional work to be finished between tuition sessions, if the parent and tutee consent to this. I aim to not only help the tutee in acquiring the grade they want but also to improve their confidence in maths and help inspire them to enjoy the subject more.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Birmingham in June 2010 with a first class degree in maths. I also attained grade A in my maths, further maths and physics A levels.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since leaving university, and have worked with many students who are currently studying for their GCSEs and A levels. However, I have no teaching experience in schools or teaching qualifications.

Tutoring Approach:

I generally prefer to let the tutee have a go at the questions they're working on, only giving them help when I feel they're at a loss as to where to go next. This is mostly due to my own experience of learning maths as I found that, when I managed to solve a problem by myself, I tended to more easily remember how to do it again when it came to revising for my exams. However, the main reason I got a first in maths was because I went over and over previous examples and questions until I'd learned every method and could solve every problem, so if need be I will just work through a question for them (obviously ensuring they understand each step as we go along) and simply let them pick up the methods that I'm using. This way I can be sure that they have a solution that they understand and can look back at in the future for guidance.

I am a PhD student at UCL, currently studying towards a doctorate in Mathematics. I have a BSc Financial Mathematics (2:1) from University of Surrey and a MSc Mathematics (distinction) from University of Sussex.

Teaching Experience:

I undertook tutoring roles at University of Sussex and I am currently tutoring a degree student in London. In addition to this I used to run a homework club at my secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that understanding is key. I will use visual representation and justification as much as possible to provide a clear understanding of why and how we use techniques. I will tailor my tutoring to the specific needs of my tutee, and my time will include a FREE consultation to see where the student is in their studies and attempt to highlight any areas where they may feel less comfortable. I hope to inspire my tutees to see maths as a useful tool as apposed to a chore.

Personal Description:
I am a Chinese and have been in the UK for 3 years. I did Maths and Further Maths on A-Level and now I am also doing Maths in the University of Exeter. You can see that I have a very strong maths skill. I also passed IELTS which is an examination for foreigners who study in the uk and it means that it should not be a big problem to communicate with you in English. My native language is Mandarin Chinese which is used by Chinese who comes from Mainland China and I speak Chinese fluently without any accents. It means my spoken Chinese is like the English who present news on BBC.

Teaching Experience:

I do have some formal teaching experience. This summer, I did a part-time job as a teacher who taught Chinese students English in my hometown. Also, I did quite well in A-levels as I always helped many of my classmates who were stuck on a question and explained solutions to them.

Tutoring Approach:

For maths, I always recommend students to do loads of questions as they can and this is what my A-level maths teachers recommend to us. I stick to this approach and did quite good on Maths. For Chinese, we do not have to do questions and to solve them. I will do the way just like what I did on English, starting from Elementary, very basic things, and watching some videoes in Chinese and explaining some Chinese Cultures and this is what my English teacher told me, if you would like to learn a language well, starting from its culture.

Personal Description:
Hello there! My name is Sam and I'm a full time private tutor who has moved back to London this year. I completed a master's degree in maths at Leeds University and have been teaching ever since. I'm still very passionate about maths and am applying for a PhD to start in the next academic year. My personal time is taken up by studying the areas of maths I want to pursue (category theory and topos theory), learning more undergraduate maths courses so that I can tutor a wider number of areas, rock climbing, highlining and playing gigs. I also have a few maths related side projects such as co-writing a maths textbook aimed at those who have just finished their A levels, and error checking/giving feedback for a soon-to-be published book on topos theory by a researcher in Canada. I enjoy a productive life focussed around my passions of which teaching comes first, as I find nothing more satisfying than helping people and seeing their grades grow. I really appreciate you taking the time to see what I have to offer as a tutor, and hope to hear from you soon.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching in a variety of different areas and environments has been my primary source of work for nearly 8 years now. For the past year and a half since I finished my masters I have been a full time private tutor of maths, predominately working in Leeds. The variety of levels I've had the opportunity to teach has been exceptional. I have taught at GCSE, As, A and further maths level for school level maths along with teaching at every level of undergraduate mathematics, teaching both on a one to one basis and conducting group tutorials with groups of 20 second year students. In particular, it has been deeply gratifying to help foreign students secure undergraduate positions and students with health issues who have needed extra assistance due to being absent from school.
During my degree, I held weekly tutorials for the lower years and gave informal guitar lessons. During my gap year, I worked for six days a week as a climbing instructor for most of the year and taught guitar on my day off. It was over my A level years that I got my first teaching experience as a piano teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

One great difference and indeed benefit of being a private tutor over a teacher is the need to adapt to each individual student. I am in the great position of being able to focus on one student per lesson, and I wouldn't be doing the best work I can if I didn't take advantage of this. My style of teaching therefore revolves around learning from each lesson about the student's evolving strengths and weaknesses, so that I can focus my lesson planning around them for our next meeting. Along with this, I try to encourage students with positive reinforcement. Frankly speaking, maths is a scary subject for a lot of people and I have found that increasing a student's confidence in their ability does wonders for their grades, proving their confidence right. Patience and understanding are key to this form of encouragement. On top of all this, I have to take into account what level the student is studying at. Maths is a very different beast every single year, the challenge of understanding quadratic equations for the first time is very different in nature to understanding quotient groups for the first time, and so I change how I teach depending on the level and age of the student.

Personal Description:
I am a 23 year old University Graduate. I graduated in 2014 from the University of Nottingham with a BSc Hons in Psychology. I have always had a passion for working with children though and am moving to Norwich for a PGCE training course at UEA. I have worked as a babysitter for a very long time and while spending time with the children on their homework I realised that I had the ability to re-explain tricky problems in a way that made them easier to understand. I have an A Level in both Maths and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent a little over a month as a teaching assistant, helping out the children who were working at a lower level in year 1 and 2. I have tutored three children and had great success. One child in particular moved up two levels in her mathematics during her six months with me and was able to score a Level 3 in her SATs when her teacher did not even expect her to sit the higher paper. Another one of my students had incredibly low confidence when it came to Maths but within a month of lessons she had won a prize in class and was contributing a lot more. I also spent two months as a teaching assistant in a special needs school which pushed me to utilise my creativity to help children learn.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to try and take maths out of the classroom. I want to make learning more exciting. I use whiteboards and flashcards in order to enforce the learning techniques that have already been taught in the classroom. I have found that sometimes one idea has to be reinforced in many different ways in order for the child to fully understand it in every context. I also want to make it fun, something that the child looks forward to every week and I have found that this has been very successful.

Personal Description:
I am a current second year Maths student with the OU and I live with my daughter and our pet cat. Besides study and work, I enjoy walking, keeping fit and photography.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring, mostly maths, for over two years now, both online and traditional face to face tuition. I have worked in local primary schools and high schools assisting with activities, on a voluntary basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor tuition to suit the needs of the actual student as each student is different and will attain desired goals via their own learning style. I structure full lessons as well as exam practice and I do like to set homework, as a means of monitoring a students progress.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Luis. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea. I am from Spain and I am very passionate about academia and learning in general.

My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology (biology), ocean dynamics (physics) and sediment geochemistry (chemistry). Data interpreting is part of my research work and it involves statistics of academic level and mathematical modelling.

I collaborate with AU Science Magazine writing blog posts and editing articles. I am also involved in a Research Development initiative to create a collaborative framework within the University of Aberdeen for researchers and students alike.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a demonstrator at the University of Aberdeen since October 2014, where I assist in the following courses in two Schools:

School of Biological Sciences:
- Oceans and Society (SX1015)
- Animal Population Ecology (ZO3307)
- Ecology and Environmental Science (BI1511)

College of Natural and Computing Sciences:
- Chemistry for the Life Sciences (CM1020)
- Chemistry for the Physical Sciences (CM1021)

I have ample tutoring experience from when I was at University in Spain and I continue tutoring to this day in Aberdeen. I have long-distance students whom I tutor via Skype. I was also a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students.

Tutoring Approach:

Where students find difficulties I like to break down concepts into simpler pieces that then assemble to represent the entire idea. I also think it is important to let the pupil know the purpose of these concepts in a wider context so that they can appreciate the value of learning the contents of the course.

Finally, I am an advocate of enjoying learning and always endeavour to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated from King`s College London, obtaining a BSc in Biomedical Sciences (July 2015). I am currently in a gap year as I apply for graduate school in the medical/dental field. As I currently have the free time, I would like to offer my academic knowledge and guidance to children requiring tutoring in Maths, Biology & Chemistry as well as general science (including Physics GCSE).

Having had private tutoring myself, I really appreciated the one-to-one attention, which allowed me to fully grasp concepts and apply this knowledge. With this opportunity I felt my understanding was in greater depth, and I felt more confident when taking exams. As a result, I experienced a large boost in my examination results. As a tutor, I feel I can work with the individual, at his or her own pace and adapt to their unique way of learning. Such methods are overrun in a large classroom. I believe this investment will boost a pupil's enthusiasm and genuine interest for a given subject.

I completed A-Level Maths & Biology with grade A and Chemistry B at St. Albans School.
I have 10 GCSE`s - 7A* (including Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and french) and 3 A`s

I am friendly and caring towards pupils, as I too understand the stress of school exams and the difficulty of not understanding difficult material! Only last year I was completing my final exams for graduation, and thus I can sympathise with strenuous revision. Therefore I would like to make challenging topics, more approachable and easier to understand for pupils, by providing a relaxed and enjoyable environment for learning.

I am very caring and supportive as I have spent many hours volunteering in St Thomas` Hospital London as well as George Washington Hospital in Washington DC, interacting with patients.

I am 22 and live in the county of Hertfordshire.

Teaching Experience:

No professional teaching experience yet as I am a recent graduate. However, I have had experience as teaching assistants and mentors:
At University I was a Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) mentor. I was assigned to 1st year biomedical students, where I would assist and encourage them to cope with difficult work load and adapting to new university life. Using my prior experience as a 1st year student, I provided them with support and advice for coursework deadlines, how to best prepare for exams and how to relax at stressful times! Such support included, weekly meetings, access to email me whenever they want, and PowerPoint presentations providing hints and tips.

I have extensive experience of interacting with the public and especially caring for patients. I have volunteered at St Thomas` Hospital London, where I cared for patients undergoing minor procedures at the Dermatology and Skin Laser Surgery. Furthermore, I volunteered at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington DC, during my summer holidays abroad.

Whilst I was doing my A Levels at St Albans School, I participated in the Gifted and Talented Mathematics Scheme. This was a program designed for primary school children who excel in mathematics. As an assistant, I would introduce and teach children new mathematical concepts. I also provided guidance on how to approach the challenging problems.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel the advantage to private tutoring is the ability to adapt 100% to the individuals method of learning. Therefore my approach is to understand and go at the pupils pace. I feel it is important that a pupil doesn't learn 'for the exam'. In order to excel and really achieve excellent results, a pupil must fully understand the topic. This way, one will be ready for any style of question that may be asked, rather than answering 'what the examiner wants'. Truly grasping concepts will also reduce the need to memorise substantial amounts of information, in a 'route learning manner'. Once core understanding is complete, I personally feel practising past-exam papers is very beneficial. Therefore, as a tutor I will provide numerous past exam questions, so the pupil feels fully confident for the exam. As is truly correct - practice makes perfect!
