Currently, I am working in primary school in Leicester as a TA.I gained QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in 2010. I have graduated from De Montfort with Diploma in Higher Education (Education Practice) and I aim to complete Masters by 2015.I am keen to learn new skills and gain new knowledge. I like active lifestyle and travelling, exploring new culture and language.

Teaching Experience:

I am bilingual teacher from Poland. I am currently working as a TA in primary school in Leicester. I had opportunity to work in a few school where I supported SEN children(learning difficulties and disabilities) as well as EAL (English as Additional Language)children, mainly Polish. I have broad understanding of National Curriculum of primary and secondary schools and I do believe my bilingual skills would help those who need extra support with English, Maths and English as a foreign language. I do tutoring for Polish adults who would like to learn English, who have no or limited knowledge about language.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced primary school teacher and Headteacher with significant teaching expertise at KS1 and KS2. I am also a qualified SENCO and have vast experience in SEN. I am a Headteacher in an excellent local school and set high standards for all my pupils. I am able to offer tuition in English, Maths and Science at both key stages. I am based in South Woodford. I can provide references on request from past and present clients who have achieved and continue to achieve success in their studies at all levels. I enjoy seeing my pupils make rapid progress and achieving academic success.

Teaching Experience:

I specialise in Entrance Examinations at 7+ and 11+, SEN and tuition for pupils who lack confidence and skills and need support to improve. I have vast experience teaching within excellent local schools and I am currently a Headteacher in a large Junior School. I teach children on a 1-2-1 basis to ensure that they receive the additional input that they need in order to achieve. I specialise in assisting children who lack confidence in specific areas and I am able to assist these children in improving their skills levels within their own school. I can provide excellent references on request from many happy pupils and parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and understanding tutor with the ability to communicate effectively with both adults and children. My aim is to ensure that pupils develop additional skills and increased confidence in their studies. I make my lessons fun and enjoyable for pupils so that they are able to enjoy learning and are keen to attend my tutoring sessions. I keep parents updated on their children's progress on a regular basis and encourage children to share worries about specific subject areas so that we can explore them together.

Personal Description:
I am a 31 year old female professional, with a First class Honours Psychology degree and full Primary teaching status, as well as specialized experience, skills and knowledge in working with children and young adults with severe learning disabilities.
I am well-traveled and moved to Brighton in the summer of August 2008, to experience life near the sea within the UK. I have also lived in London, Australia and New Zealand.
I practice Hot Yoga and am a keen runner as well as a scuba-diver.

Teaching Experience:

I am in my eighth year as a qualified teacher and have worked within education of young people, particularly those with special needs, since I was 16.
I worked within a nursery over a 3year period, covering sickness and holiday relief, caring for children from all ages between 6months-5 years.
I have taught in all Primary year groups and currently have a Key Stage 1 and 2 class, specializing in Autism. I am up to date on many special needs provisions and have strong behaviour management skills. I am also a middle manager and the lead teacher for Literacy and Numeracy, for students ranging from age 5 to 19 years of age.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be enjoyable, interesting and applicable to real-life. Education lacking these elements will not, in my mind, endear itself to young people.
I am fair and consistent and expect high standards from all my students. I will always endeavour to cater for personal needs and to make learning individualized and therefore accessible.
I will not accept laziness but I will accept honesty - if a student finds something difficult, they know to tell me in order that I may assist them and overcome that particular hurdle.
When I am tutoring at GCSE and adult level, I also endeavour to make the sessions motivating, but ensure they are more student-lead and will scaffold the sessions but find tutees have more success when they are able to be guided rather than dictated to.

Personal Description:
I am someone who very much enjoys teaching and helping others to achieve their own personal best. It is very important to me that my students enjoy their lessons, continue improving in their ability and I am always happy to receive feedback on how the student feels throughout our work together.
As the mother of four grown children, the youngest being twenty four years old, I am someone who is very empathetic towards young people and adults who need my help. Together with my teaching, I work as a volunteer for two charities; this has given me a great deal of experience at working with others, helping them to the best of my ability.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a variety of schools, both State and Independent, have a great deal of experience at teaching English, preparing pupils for Common Entrance examinations and have co-ordinated English at Key Stages 3 and 4. I have also been in charge of co-ordinating PHSE and have been in charge of a Foundation Year for overseas students. Furthermore, I have a great deal of experience in teaching both able children and those who who have specific learning difficulties, helping them to grow in confidence and to realise that they can do well.
I have always been a popular and conscientious teacher and have helped many young people do very well in public and Common Entrance examinations, often helping them to achieve results they and their parents had only dreamed of. I am equally happy teaching young people and adults and I will endeavour to make any lessons I teach enjoyable and educational.


I have tutored for several years, and very much enjoy working in a one-to-one situation.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a simple and effective one. I work out what a pupil needs and work hard to ensure that they achieve the right tuition to achieve their own personal best. I build up a good rapport with my students and have remained friends with many of my students and their parents since working with them. It is important that a student feels confident in their own ability and I always work hard to ensure that a student feels a great sense of achievement in what they do. My approach is enthusiastic, energetic and sympathetic, resulting in a good experience for those concerned who are working with me.

Personal Description:
I am married with four sons and live in Taunton, Somerset. I am interested in gardening, growing vegetables and flowers. I belong to the National Trust and to a town exchange with Lisieux, Normandy. I walk and cycle regularly. I am interested in cooking and reading. We have students who stay with us during the year; they are unable to go home for the weekend or half term because they live in places such as China, Japan or Russia.

Teaching Experience:

I have had many years of experience in primary schools teaching subjects as required, at both KS1 and KS2 and have a particular interest in English, Reading, Mathematics and History. I taught children on Home Tuition from 8 to 16 years; these children were not able to attend school for various reasons, such as health or behaviour. I taught subjects as required, which included Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography and PSHE. I also taught for four years in a special school teaching EBD students from 8 to 16 years; this included teaching English, History, PSHE, Maths and Science to GCSE; in this post I took responsibility in the headteacher's absence. I have taught students English as a Foreign Language in my home since 1996; these have included children and adults and have had different levels of competence in English including beginner. I have also taught pupils studying for entrance exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have had many years of experience and teach sympathetically; I am very patient. I have a variety of materials for the different subjects and make them as interesting as possible. I adapt my teaching to the individual's needs, whether advanced or those who find it more difficult to learn. I have had much experience of teaching Reading, Handwriting and Spelling and also for entrance exams. Frequently I use a multi-sensory approach and educational games. If it is suitable, I give homework. I can teach two students together if they are learning the same subject. I am very flexible. I teach in a quiet room and the parents are welcome to stay (normally in a room close by).

Personal Description:
I live in Crawley, West Sussex and have worked in social care since completing my BA(hons) in 2000. I have worked with many different client groups of all ages, spending the last few years in a training role. I am a foster carer to an older teenager and I am just about to start working as a lecturer at a local college.

I am a positive, approachable person who will work hard to help you (and your child) to succeed.

I have just re-read my profile and feel that it makes me sound a little stuffy! I think it contains all of the information a parent/ potential student needs to know but I just want to add that I have a great sense of humour, I love being around children/ people who want to learn, am reliable and a great time keeper.

* I currently have some additional vacancies on a Saturday and weekday evenings*

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a learning support assistant in adult education classes and have completed the introductory to teaching qualification (PTTLS) and the PGCE. I am working in a FE college in Surrey, teaching across levels 1 - 3. I have recently tutored children in literacy and numeracy (KS1 & KS2). I have delivered training to adults with mental health difficulties, adults and children with learning disabilities, trainee teachers, college students and staff who work in social care. I have done this in group settings and on a 1:1 basis. I have also spent time working with the foster children who have been placed with me to improve their academic achievements, in particular, with their reading and writing skills.

I have been graded as 'outstanding' in a recent teaching observation carried out by Ofsted and am happy to provide evidence of this

Tutoring Approach:

Learning needs to be fun! I strive to make sessions enjoyable, memorable and interactive because I feel that this is the best way to learn. I like to use different learning methods in my approach and will regularly carry out assessment to monitor progress. Regular progress reports on will be available to you because it is important that you know how well you (or your child) are doing and any areas that need to be focused upon.

Sessions will be individually planned and delivered so best to meet your aims and aspirations. Depending on age and ability, I think it is important that students take responsibility for their own learning and I like to set independent work to be completed at home.

When working with children, I prefer to do this in their own home.

I am currently working in the RH1 area and am happy to provide travel in this and surrounding areas during the week. I am also happy to travel further afield for a booking of 3 hours or more. Please contact me should you require any further information

Personal Description:
I have enjoyed working with children in teaching and pastoral roles for more than seven years. I have completed Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in counselling training, and I am currently working towards my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling; as a result I have developed valuable listening skills. My other interests include patchwork sewing and baking. I have a calm and gentle approach, and I have a proven ability to make children feel at ease when working with me.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years experience of working in primary schools across all age-ranges. My various roles have included teaching: all subjects in whole class groups; extra basic skills support in small groups; and one-to-one phonics and spellings lessons. I have helped children to achieve excellent progress in all my roles.

In my experience as a private tutor for almost four years, I have tutored children between the ages of six and eleven, including preparation for SATs and eleven plus tests. I have excellent references which highlight children's significant progress and increased confidence since working with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor tutoring to the individual child, focusing on their strengths and preferred learning styles. I use games to reinforce concepts while making learning enjoyable. I offer rewards, such as stickers and certificates, to motivate and recognise children's achievements. All my lessons are thoroughly planned and prepared, and regular assessment informs planning for later lessons.

Targets are set at an initial meeting and are reviewed on a termly basis, when new targets may be set. A written report is given to parents and carers at the end of each term. Reductions in fees are offered if you are able to pay for a block of lessons in advance.

Personal Description:
I am patient person. I have a gentle manner to get to know your child and to get the best learning experience for him/her.
While I am gentle in manner I will not take unruly behaviour.

Teaching Experience:

I am teacher who has taken early retirement. I have 15 years experience of teaching at infant level and further education level.
I taught reception classes for two years followed by year one for two years in Leicester.
I have also taught students with learning difficulties independant living skills for 9 years.
I have been working in schools in and around the Pontypridd untill I left 18 months ago to live in Glasgow.
Whilst in Glasgow I taught one 5 year old boy for a period of about 8 weeks over the smmer holiday. I also taught two 10 year old boys who needed their confidence boosting.
I am now back in Pontypridd and available to tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring should be fun for both the child and the tutor. I would look to use games as much as possible to enrich the time with your child. Initially I would need to talk to you as the parent to see what problems you and possibly the class teacher believe your child has, and how best they can be helped. I would need to review the situation as time went on to see what I have gathered.

Personal Description:
I hold a Masters in Photography and have been in the photographic business with over 15 years, I have used all modern digital cameras from compact, Digital SLR and up to and including Medium Format Digital Cameras.

I specialise in Wedding, Commercial, Advertising, Insurance and Injury based photography working to Licentiate standard of the British Institute of Professional Photography and Associate of The Royal Photographic Society. I have produced high quality images for wedding couples as well as using my training and skills to produce images for websites, restaurants, Advertising and Photo Restoration along with producing images which stand up to legal and ethical scrutiny in both injury and insurance work. I have written training methods for photography, using Flash, Getting the Most from High Definition Capture as well as working with other photographic trainers in the wider field of photography. During this time I have trained photographers in specialised subject such as Marco, Flash, Camera Care and Post Processing Software.

I use fine optics and microscopes and prepare images for web and magazine layout for medical publications using Photoshop Techniques.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring both amateur and professional photographers with over ten years and always endeavour to get the maximum out of every camera regardless of its size and cost.

I relate well to people.

I speak clearly.

I can quickly evaluate skill levels of individuals and can modify both techniques and explanations to suit the learner.

I have been involved with photographic training over the last six years helping both amateur and professional photographers alike.

I am very familiar with the theory and practical use of all formats of cameras ranging from 35mm to Large Format Equipment.

I am conversant in the many works of past photographers as well as latter day amateur and professional people.

Presently, I work as a Tutor and I have over 65 persons in lesson ranging from the age of 4 to Age 56. I am also studying Photogrammetry after my MA Photography.

I collect reference books and articles books on the subject of Photography and Art.

I can use both Traditional and Digital Techniques for Image Capture.

I can use both Traditional and Digital Techniques for the development of images both in the Darkroom and in Post Processing Software such as Capture One, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe CS4, 5,6/ Elements./ Final Cut Pro/X.

I am an advocate of the new revolutionary techniques of HD Video captured by an SLR.

I can use both Apple Macintosh and PC Systems.

I have written Presentations in Photographic Lessons.

I can demonstrate Practicals on the subject of Photography.

I can tackle many aspects of photography from Portrait, Wedding, Commercial, Urban, Landscape, Black and White, Architectural, Commercial, Macro to telephoto as well as Microscopy and Photomicrography.

I can competently create beautiful Black and White Images

Tutoring Approach:

I am a kind person and I do realise that I was once a beginner in this area, while it will not happen overnight, my experience has shown that my clients can fastrack their abilities by the benefit of my methods.
I have just completed an MA Photography in where I undertook a project which was an assertive evaluation on landscape photography, highlighting the factor of scale and the part it plays with both the picture and the viewer.

Using traditional and digital photographic techniques together with specialised optics. my work explored conventional landscapes alongside fragments in extraordinary detail. My work challenged the traditional view that photography is a science or art, demonstrating that it can be both.

Within two years I want to build on my MA Photography and hopefully study for a PhD in this area. I also want to build on my Associate status of The Royal Photographic Society and want to aim for a Fellowship of this organisation within two years by September 2014.

I have made some very good friendships in the area of photography who are of enormous help to me.

I have spoken at major International Lectures in overseas Conventions.

I am hoping to have a Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society within two years, September 2014

I aim to start an Outreach Program on Photography by the summer of 2013.

Personal Description:
I am currently a Primary School teacher working in the Maidstone area. I find teaching such a rewarding experience. There is no greater reward than being able to help a child who is finding something difficult so that they can feel confident to not only attempt task, but to use strategies and techniques taught which will help them to succeed. My experience of teaching all primary ages has helped me to develop strategies that the children will find simple and rewarding and as I know exactly where the children are coming from at a basic level and where they will b going to, I am able to support and challenge where necessary.

Teaching Experience:

I`ve been teaching for 8 years and during this time I have taught all primary age year groups from Reception through to year 6, although I currently teach a year 3 class. I have found that each year group offers its own challenges and rewards, but teaching this range has enabled me to develop strategies and activities that are suited to all. This range of experiences within primary school has also helped me to become familiar with not only the curriculum but also the testing arrangements in all year groups and as such I would be confident to tutor children of any primary age.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe that children need to feel comfortable and safe in order to learn well. I make every effort to get to know the children as I know that from understanding their personality, their likes and their dislikes, I am able to focus my tutoring to help them to reach their potential. Each child is individual and I endeavour to remember this every time I teach. Whether your child needs someone to challenge them academically, or someone to understand their complex needs and personalities, I can offer this.
