Personal Description:
I am a parent and therefore understand the value of ensuring that children get the very best of education especially when they are still young. I have also had professional experience in two sectors of an economy (Automobile Marketing and Banking) and currently enrolled full time for an MBA. My experiences will therefore be quite useful to my business related students. My hobbies include watching and playing football, music, reading novels and watching movies.

Teaching Experience:

I had taught for over 5 years before taking full time professional employment. I presently give tutorials to colleagues who are having a hard time keeping up with the MBA programme.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple. I start by gaining the trust of my student through series of informal talks before the day's session as this helps the student to see me as a friend in whom he/she can trust. One trust is established, the student is confident to relate the areas he/she is having a challenge and we can take it up from there.

Personal Description:
I have always had a very approachable manner as a teacher as I have always believed that this is the best way to relax a pupil and make their mind more pliable to different approaches. I fully understand that mathematics can be a challenge, and this I believe is where my very patient and empathetic demeanour can produce results quickly and restore a pupil's self-belief. I am thorough in my preparation, professional in my presentation of written materials, and prompt and comprehensive with marking. I will be reliable, wholly courteous, and totally focused on the pupil's development.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a qualified teacher since 2006. From 2005 to 2012 I taught at Swansea College (now, Gower College Swansea) on a range of programmes including BTEC courses, GCSE and A-level Mathematics. While at Swansea College I continued tutoring mathematics privately, building my knowledge of the demands of Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and developing a range of strategies to effectively teach those specifications.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe that mathematics is based on a number of core principles, and success in mathematics depends on a concrete understanding of these principles rather than rote learning of topics. My private tutoring sessions are always designed around the effective delivery of these principles. I am always flexible in my approach, and I understnd that a pupil's attention may be distracted by something that they remember they have covered in a formal lesson. However, my commitment to ensuring that the principles are understood will not change. My lessons last for 1 hour and 20 minutes, and incorporate a 5-minute introduction to the objectives for that session, 1 full hour of teaching and a 15-minute review at the end.

Personal Description:
I always seek to organise lessons around the student's areas of interest.
I expect lessons to be both fun and challenging, and set clear goals and objectives for each student, both short- term and long- term.

Personal Description:
Although I now have a PGCE in mathematics I have been lucky enough to get the chance to apply my skills in maths and physics whilst working as an engineer in the automotive and white goods industries. It gave me the opportunity to travel abroad and to get involved with companies such as Dyson, Jaguar, Austin Martin and then even allowed me to watch rockets being built in Russia.
I trained engineers and factory workers in the use of mathematical and physics based subjects. Some of those I taught had jobs which involved predominantly manual skills and so they were a little rusty when applying mathematical techniques. This makes me appreciate the nervousness some adults have when presented with a subject they may not have touched since leaving school.
After leaving the engineering world I had a brief spell working as a trainer in the insurance arena and then finally ended up teaching mathematics in secondary schools.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a manufacturing engineer for 8 years and then I taught engineers and factory workers for 10 years in the use of techniques involving mathematics and physics. After leaving the engineering world I trained adults to use a mainframe software program and then I went on to become a secondary school mathematics teacher. Finally I started tutoring from home working with various types of pupils. Some pupils have special needs, whilst others are working towards an A grade in their A levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to know why the tutee wishes to study. It may be to improve their confidence or to pass an exam. This will then shape the nature of the tutoring sessions. My focus is to provide people with the knowledge that is most useful to them and their aspirations.

Personal Description:
I am a highly experienced Maths tutor, geared toward ensuring you get the best exam grades possible in your field. I will increase your understanding of maths, and my explanations are simple and straightforward. Alongside tutoring, I will guide you through exam techniques, and common pitfalls.

Teaching Experience:

6 years private tutor. 4 years private tutor in Maths 1, Maths 2, and Mechanics of Materials of University's courses.
2 years experiences in GCSE and A Level Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching strategy usually involves engaging the student in critical thinking early on, as I believe this is the key to understanding, and I will never "tell" a student what he should do, or why this is like that, but to direct his thinking so that he/she understands why this is the way it is, and why should he/she act that way. I do not believe in memorisation being the main way of teaching in some countries, as this usually does not prepare people for university and life in general, specially in science and maths. Of course, there's always a degree of memorisation in every subject, but I try to keep it to a minimum. This also depends on every student, and I ultimately asses my strategy individually for each student.

Personal Description:
I have completed PhD in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Manchester. I offer assistance to degree students in assignments and dissertations. I also offer home tuitions for GCSE and A level students. Currently I am teaching at the University of Manchester to engineering students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught as Lecturer at under-grad level in the department of mechanical engineering, UET Lahore for almost three years. In January 2007, I joined the department, as Lab Engineer and then promoted to the position of Lecturer after completing Master's degree in 2009. The university and the department claim top position in national ranking and also enjoy the honour of being the biggest and oldest ones in the country. My career of about two years here was full of struggle and effort for excellence in teaching and research.
In addition to that I have have given tuitions as Home Tutor to GCSE and O/A level individuals and small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I always have the highest expectations of pupils and always have had, even when it was fashionable for learning to be more "child centred"; this is an approach I have found to pay rich dividends in terms of a pupil's academic and personal development. I have always managed to maintain friendly and relaxed environment tailored exactly to what the students requires. Above all I can offer general education and career advice when it matters the most and have observed that my students usually make fast progress towards their goals and good outputs.

Personal Description:
I am 60 years old, originally from a business and finance background, and retrained as a teacher from 2008/9, completing a PGCE. I am QTLS qualified and a member of the Tutors' Association which promotes professional standards in the tutoring industry.
I operate as a freelance/private tutor specialising in mathematics and have experience in teaching all ages from primary up to GCSE. I also have several years' experience teaching basic numeracy and literacy to adults.

Teaching Experience:

From 2007-2009 I worked as a volunteer/trainee teacher for a further education college and from 2009-2012 was employed as a basic skills tutor travelling throughout East Anglia teaching adult numeracy and literacy in the workplace. Since January 2012 I have worked as a private tutor teaching mathematics to 5 - 16 year olds whilst continuing to work as a part-time Functional Skills and GCSE mathematics tutor for a local college.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Rhea and I love to teach. I am most excited about Art as this is my passion (I am currently working as a Graphic Designer). I also really enjoy learning about science (in particular neuroscience and psychology). I find astrology fascinating and so am both creative and a bit nerdy.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in both primary and secondary schools as a teaching assistant. This was primarily in art in the secondary school, teaching children how to draw and use various materials to create great artwork. In primary school, I have helped teach literacy, numeracy, phonics, reading, science and art. During these experiences I have found ways of explaining new information to children so they can apply it without supervision. I also have worked in various school holiday clubs, so I relate very well to children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is individualistic - each person has their own learning style and it is important to understand which way a student learns best. Some people are kinaesthetic learners, others are verbal and some have an amazing ability to memorize information. I am personally a hands on learner, but I am able to adapt to various techniques for students. I am friendly and personable and think it is important to develop a good relationship with tutees.

Personal Description:
I am a Chemical Engineering graduate from Trinity College, Cambridge. I am a full-time tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring in 2006. My students have been of a variety of levels and backgrounds, ranging from Key Stage 3 Foundation level students to GCSE, A-level, and university students.

Here are some of the things my students have to say about me:

"Stas is an excellent tutor, I am studying Mechanical Engineering and his knowledge of Maths, Mechanics and Thermo Dynamics is extensive. He explained things in a clear and precise way and was always well prepared for the sessions. He was also punctual and reliable; it was a pleasure to learn from him."
Jack, Liverpool University

"I am currently studying Chemical Engineering, and Stas tutored me for Process Engineering, his teaching was nothing but the best, i understood the course in no time. He explains everything from the basics, something i wanted. Honestly, I will recommend him any day! He is a brilliant tutor."
Zahra, Manchester University

"Stas is an enthusiastic and patient Maths tutor. He has provided me with some very good examples, and has been a great help."
Jim, Manchester Metropolitan University, MA Bioinformatics

"Stas is a great tutor. I feel much more confident with Maths now then I did when we first started. It is evident in my grades that Stas has helped me improve in Maths. He is very good at explaining the material that I don't understand; he uses different scenarios to help explain them which enables me to apply Maths to real life situations. I enjoyed our tuition sessions, as Stas made Maths fun!"
Sehr, Manchester, A-level Maths

"This has been our first experience of using a tutor and it has been very good, thanks to Stas. Not only is he very reliable, but my son has enjoyed the sessions and learnt a great deal in terms of problem solving with his maths, Further Maths and Physics. Stas has also been able to help with some more complex Chemistry work. So far, they have worked through the more challenging sections of the Further Maths syllabus and past papers. Most importantly, my son finds their sessions extremely useful and Stas inspirational to work with."
Tamlyn, London

"My son, Alex was having problem with Biology, so far he had only few lessons with Stas but there's been a huge improvement in his grade already. We have been so impressed with Stas's teaching techniques, that we are taking on extra lessons in Maths and Physics with Stas. Stas is the most genuine teacher I've come across, there is no nonsense with him. I can see that Stas truly enjoys teaching and more importantly my son finds learning from Stas is so enjoyable."
Mel, Cheshire

"Stas has been extremely helpful. He has helped me with my math problems even though I am a mature Masters student. Stas was very patient with me and took the time to fully understand my math learning needs and difficulties. He took the time to understand the methods I had been previously taught but did not fully understand. He analyzed what my difficulties and issues were regarding math basics. Stas is a very professional and an effective teacher. I would highly recommend Stas to anyone who requires a math tutor."
Paola

Tutoring Approach:

Different people have different problems, so it would be somewhat inflexible to have a completely "catch-all" approach to how to teach people.

However, I tend to prefer a teaching style where the student is as active as possible. I usually acheive this by trying to get the student to reason through problems themselves, while helping them along the way. In my experience, this also helps me see where there are gaps in the student's knowledge, and helps me understand their thought process. (It is imperative to understand where the student is in their understanding.) It also helps approach a very common problem with students, which is fear, or lack of confidence - being encouraged to think through ideas and problems which they find difficult in a safe and non-judgmental environment can help them develop a better attitude to their subject.

I also try to offer connections with, and examples from, everyday life. I generally draw and use diagrams as much as possible, or even use props, as I find it to be the most expressive way of teaching.

I am also very enthusiastic about Science and Maths. I often find that this ends up rubbing off on some of my students!

Personal Description:
I am a third year student at Imperial College London, studying towards a Mathematics degree. I'm passionate about Maths and would love to share my interest with anyone. I've participated in a few external Math competitions and on track towards a 1st class honours for my degree.

Teaching Experience:

I've volunteered to teach Math at a refugee shelter.

Most of the time, I've helped out my friends who struggled with Maths throughout their high school and college.

Tutoring Approach:

I would consider myself to be more of a study buddy who would help out on the difficult questions and changing my pace of teaching tailored towards one's strength. In terms of Mathematics, I put emphasis on the derivation and understanding of the mathematical concept. Having gone through a mathematics degree, I can't stress enough on the importance to learn from first principle and learning the underlying assumptions. Instead of tackling multiple similar type questions, I wish to instill problem solving techniques that covers a wider range of questions.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris. I have a PhD in Physics from Nottingham University, and now work for a large engineering firm in Derby.

I am a friendly, experienced tutor who has been offering support to students for over ten years. As well as tutoring essential material, I can give guidance on coursework and can help to prepare students for upcoming exams by developing exam technique.

Teaching Experience:

I started providing Maths and Physics tuition for GCSE and A Level students in 2004, when I started my PhD. I have since taken on degree level tuition (including mature students) as well.

I have gained over ten years' experience of providing private support to students towards improving their exam and coursework performance, across different exam boards (mainly Edexcel and OCR).

Tutoring Approach:

I find that an adaptable approach is essential. Not all teaching styles work for all people - it's a matter of finding the best way to get ideas through to each individual student. This is where private tuition is invalvuable: teachers in the classroom often simply don't have time to adapt to each individual, whereas private tutors can. Building rapport in the first couple of sessions is therefore essential.

Since teaching is not my main job, I find it quite enjoyable and bring a fresh, energetic approach to my sessions. And I needed A Level maths tuition myself, back in the day, which means I can empathise with people who may need support.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate with a 2:1 BSc Hons in Zoology (a biology-based science degree). I am currently working in an administrative role for a local agricultural and environmental company, and in September 2016 I will begin my PGCE to teach Math at secondary school level at York University.

While at university, for two years I volunteered some time each week with the Riding for the Disabled Association. This is an organisation that provides a therapeutic horse riding experience to children and adults of all ages who have physical and/or learning difficulties. I found this experience extremely rewarding, and certainly learned a lot from my time with RDA.

My hobbies include music, theatre and horse riding.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored the children of two family friends (both were aged 10-12 at the time). I also volunteered with the Riding for the Disabled Association.

Tutoring Approach:

My main teaching 'philosophy' is patience - if a student isn't understanding something, it is never the student's fault. It is my job, as a tutor, to find another way of explaining it or another approach until we have a clear understanding. I believe tutors and teachers should allow the student to be curious, explore and make discoveries for themselves. However this should , of course, always be provided within a structured environment.

Personal Description:
I am a third year student in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. I am taking a year out of my studies due to illness last term. I am very interested in maths and science and have a strong academic background in these subjects, having achieved 4A*s in my A Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. These subjects have been the basis of my tutoring in the past.

Previous work experience includes working for a large engineering firm, where strong communication skills were essential to negotiate and converse with clients and colleagues alike. Outside of academia and work I participate in a number of sports. In particular, I play rugby for Worcester College. I have also rowed for the College and competed in several regattas. Both these activities require commitment, strong teamwork skills and excellent time management.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored several students at a range of abilities, from year 10 to year 13, in maths and all three sciences. I used a variety of ways to convey topics that the students found hard, and invented creative and memorable methods for the students to understand concepts. My tutoring work was highly effective and the students' grades increased considerably. I find tutoring very enjoyable and rewarding.

I also have teaching experience in sport. While at school I spent every Saturday morning coaching tennis to children between the ages of three and eleven, after receiving my Tennis Leadership Award. My responsibilities included planning activities for the children to do, giving both encouragement and finding ways for the children to improve, and overseeing the general running of the session. The role required enthusiasm, the ability to provide clear instructions and patience.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very friendly and patient, with excellent communication skills. At the first meeting, I always find out the tutee's current level and then find out where the tutee wants to go. We then agree a way between ourselves to get the tutee to the point where they wish to be. As the tutoring sessions progress, I revisit the tutee's aims to ensure that they are on track. At each tutoring session, we briefly go over the last tutorial to keep that information fresh, before taking it forward during the current session and then, at the end of each session, summarise what the tutee has just learned.

This approach proved to be very successful during my previous tutoring work, and the tutees' confidence soared. I appreciate that each tutee's needs are different and that they will learn in different ways: ensuring that my approach is specifically tailored to the way the particular tutee learns really helps to achieve results.
