Personal Description:
I am 56 years old, am a qualified teacher with 15 years experience. I am an easy-going reliable person who likes to make my students feel at ease at all times.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching seconday school students since qualifying in 1998. I have had two full-time posts, worked as a supply teacher as well as having private students. I have worked in Inner London, Outer London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire schools. I have also worked in France at a small private school during the '80's, predominantly teaching adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach French using the native tongue as much as possible. I use my own resources although I use the Internet for ideas whenever it's suitable.
For Maths I follow the syllabus laid down by whichever examining board the student is using and resources come from a wide variety of places usually from where I have recently been teaching. I gather information from colleagues who sometimes have great ideas. I like to be able to go through past papers with students marking work as we go through a course.

Personal Description:
I'm a hard working dedicated individual that will give any task set my best. I always aim for the very best and I love to help those around me. I have a Psychology degree (2.1) and I have successfully passed graduate teacher in a Primary Academy in North London (PGCE). I currently work in Year 2 where the focus is on the the KS1 SATs, however I have had previous years of experience working in Reception classes to Year 6.

I have a strong passion for the English Language. I have always enjoyed it and I believe that helping people with English is where I shine through. Since I have started working full time in a school, I have really found a passion for teaching mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

2012
I have been a member of UK Tutors since 2008 and have tutored around 20 children and young adults since. I've had voluntary work experience working as a teaching assistant for children aged between 3 and 4. I've also had experience working with a year 6 class who were due to take their year 6 SATS test. In this role I helped those who were finding certain aspects of their lessons hard; I helped those with special needs and I also offered extra guidance to those who were confident with their upcoming tests. I've also been a mentor to secondary school students aged 13-15. I offered help for all sorts of problems - whether it was to do with trouble with their social life or trouble with understanding things in lessons. No matter what the problem was, they had my full attention and I like to believe that I always successfully helped them.

2013:
I have currently passed the Qualified Teacher Skills (QTS) test in English and Maths and I am now a Graduate Teacher working in Year 2. I am knowledgeable about the curriculum and what the children need to achieve to reach certain levels. I am currently focusing on the Year 2 upcoming SATS.

I am fully trained in MMS (Maths Made Sense) which is a new and revolutionary way to teach children maths - the results are incredible. This approach makes dividing, multiplying, adding and subtracting easy for the children to understand as well as making the lessons fast-paced and fun.

I am also fully trained in RWI (Read, Write, Inc) which is a fantastic phonics scheme for children. By the use of special techniques and layouts of work children are able to progress fast through the phonics scheme - ensuring they fully know how to read and write all their sounds! Many schools are starting to show interest in this scheme as the results are fantastic, I have been lucky enough to be working in a school that has been using this scheme for many years now.

I receive termly training on both MMS and RWI to keep me up to date with the newest techniques to help children succeed.

I work with a broad range of children - from those suffering with learning disabilities, those with English as a second language and gifted and talented children. I work with 3 year olds through to 11 year olds. I also tutor English and Maths up to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach:

I am currently tutoring 8 people - from children needing to boost their grades for their Year 2 SATS to teenagers and adults brushing up on their A-Level Psychology. I also tutor a few children who have learning difficulties - the focus of the sessions revolve around confidence building, acquisition of knowledge, recognition of numbers/letters and helping children to write through working on their hand motor skills.

I have a kind, warm and friendly approach to teaching and helping. I will always be understanding, and never will be patronising. I believe that people are not scared to approach me when they need help. People will have my full attention and I will help to my fullest extent.

If you feel that I am the right candidate for you, please always opt for 1 X 1 hour lesson on the enquiry page - this is so we can both make sure that our arrangement is right and that we both do not end up paying extra fees! We can arrange further tutoring after our first session.

Personal Description:
I've loved Mathematics from as long as I can remember and I enjoy teaching it and tutoring others. I have studied Maths up to PhD level and so am comfortable teaching all levels of Maths. I am friendly and spend time to help my tutees understand the fundamental concepts which they need for problem solving so that they can be successful in applying this knowledge in their exams.

Teaching Experience:

I was a teaching assistant at Strathclyde University for 4 years. In that time, I lectured Mathematics to first and second year University students, organised and supervised tutorial sessions, set and marked assignments/exams and tutored students on a one-to-one basis. I have also tutored my friend's kids who were home schooled and marked work which their parents didn't have the knowledge to mark.
Also have a PGDE(S) in Mathematics and currently teaching within the new curriculum

Tutoring Approach:

I find that the most effective way of mastering concepts/tricks is the hands-on approach. So I work with my tutees particularly in areas where they are weak until they have mastered the underlying concept/approach and are able to apply it on their own to similar problems. I am patient and work with you to help you use the knowledge you already have by approaching material from a different angle to what you've maybe been shown.

Personal Description:
My first teaching job was in Kenya when I was 19, and since then I have taught English in Mexico, Brazil, Japan and England. My students have ranged from 4 to 94, and from beginners to doctors and academic researchers, focusing on conversation, business, or exams, depending on the student's needs.

I have a passion for language, whether listening to strangers on the bus or exploring grammatical structures, and my students pick up my enthusiasm and enjoyment.

I have written a book on psychology, linguistics and science, edited children's books and academic texts, and worked as a translator of both Portuguese and Japanese.

My BSc is in Life Sciences with the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, and I am interested in nearly everything, except football and cars.

Teaching Experience:

2010-present: ESL teacher, language coach for academics, and private tutor to Japanese kids.

2006-2010: Private English tutor (in MG, Brazil).

2001-2005: High School teacher and private tutor (in Kyoto, Japan)
1999-2001: Elementary and Junior High School English teacher, also special needs class (in Fukushima, Japan).

1997: Teacher for tortillas and lodging in the jungle (in Chiapas, Mexico)

1995: Volunteer school teacher of English, Science & Maths (in rural Kenya)

Tutoring Approach:

I use only English in my lessons, encouraging my students to speak as much as possible, and to correct their own or each other's errors wherever possible.

My emphasis is on fluency, natural language and confidence, so when teaching grammar or considering problems, the student can refer to concrete examples in their heads, rather than abstract formulae in textbooks.

I use a broad range of materials, techniques, and situations, setting high standards and pushing my students to work hard towards accuracy and creativity in English.

Though I am happy teaching one-to-one, I find that a group of two to four students can be more dynamic, more relaxed, and a better environment for free expression and mutual correction. If you agree, I might invite you to join a class of students at a similar level, which makes the lesson much more economical for you.

I'm a wife and mother of two daughters and I work in education.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in schools for the past 11 years in a number of roles. I am a trained Primary teacher with a specialism in Spanish. I worked for a year as a supply teacher with classes from Year 1 to Year 6. In secondary schools I have provided a wide and varied support role for English and Modern Foreign Language faculties. I worked for a year as a Cover Supervisor and currently I work in a successful girls' secondary school as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. I support students across the whole curriculum. As well as a classroom based role, I assist the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator at the school and so I have a special interest working with young people with special educational needs and also children with English as an additional language. I am confident in supporting learners from Key Stage 1 through to GCSE in most subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to vary my approach to tutoring depending upon the needs of the tutee and their preferred learning style. I feel it is important that the learner has the opportunity to take ownership of the learning experience, though some need more guidance than others. I like to encourage learners so that they realise that they are capable of so much more than they originally thought possible. I mentor GCSE students at my school and find that young people in particular may have problems self-esteem and this hinders their learning, particularly in a group setting. Working one to one gives students that little bit of breathing space they need to work through their problems without having to feel self-conscious - then they can feel more confident and flourish when they go back into the classroom.

Currently studying at university. I am also extensively involved in sports.

Teaching Experience:

Has high-school teaching experience in GCSE and A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

It's all about getting the students passionate about what they're learning. My approach is simple, no learning by heart; complex problems are broken down into simpler and more easily understandable parts and it's all about teaching students to think on their own, i.e, developing their thought process.

Personal Description:
I am a mechanical engineer with MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development from University of Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I was involved in conducting the training camp for the selection of the team that represented Pakistan in the 36th International Physics Olympiad, held in Spain. I was involved in conducting exams, practicals, marking, teaching as well as coordinating tutorials sessions with professors.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take a practical approach to teaching. I want to give an intuitive feel to the students to help him grasp complex concepts. I do this by giving everyday examples to highlight the subjects under study. I want to
make science fun, cool and intuitive for students and remove the myth and misconceived perception that it is difficult and boring. If the teaching approach is correct, there is no reason why students will not be thrilled by laws and mechanisms of universe.

Personal Description:
I`m a fourth year medical student currently studying at Imperial College. I studied the International Baccalaureate (IB) for my sixth form, but have a lot of experience of teaching the A-level curriculum as well.

Teaching Experience:

I have three years of experience in one-to-one tutoring both biology and chemistry, for GCSE, A-level as well as for IB-students. I also teach GCSE maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I`m a very cheerful and enthusiastic person - and I like to think I know how to motivate people to pushing their boundaries and challenging themselves. The students I`ve taught previously have all succeeded very well in their exams, and often commented that I explained the concepts to them better than their own teachers. I think my commitment and passion to teaching in the past makes me a good candidate to teach the subjects I`ve specified.

Personal Description:
Retired, deputy headteacher of a primary school in London. Aged 59. I have two children of my own, aged 12 and 14.

Teaching Experience:

Taught in primary and secondary schools for 34 years. Over 20 years experience as a deputy headteacher. Have taught the full age range of primary school but mostly KS2 (age 7-11). My main role over the last 15 years has been a Year 6 SATS teacher so I have lots of experience for SATS preparation. I also did a lot of work in booster groups in Maths and English, moving children from level 3 to level 4. I have now been tutoring for a year with children aged between 7 and 14. For the last 3 years I have been a Key Stage 2 SATs marker.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim is to improve the ability of the children in the subjects chosen. Most of my tutees find the one-to-one personal touch invaluable because it allows me to quickly identify the areas of difficulty and devise a learning programme to meet these at a pace which the tutee finds comfortable. Many of the parents have commented that one-to-one sessions have rapidly improved the tutee's confidence and has frequently resulted in them being moved up groups in the classroom. Other parents have asked me to prioritise my teaching time working with their children on school homework. I like to create a friendly but purposeful atmosphere. I always give time to the parents at the end of each session so they are kept completely informed about my aims and strategies. I have years of experience and all the relevant materials to support the children in these subjects.
