Personal Description:
I am a BSc Geography graduate currently studying for an MA in Education Practice at De Montfort University. I am due to start my PGCE Teacher Training in September at the University of Leicester. Currently, I work full time as a Teaching Assistant at a special educational needs school in Leicester. In the past I have worked as a personal mentor for young adults. I have a genuine passion for the acquisition of new knowledge and the delivery of my understanding to others.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a full time Teaching Assistant at a special educational needs school in Leicester. This role affords me the opportunity to teach a mixture of subjects to both groups of children and individuals in one to one sessions. Prior to this, I worked as a Sports Development Officer for Team Ltd, instructing large groups of children in a range of physical education activities. In addition, I have also been employed as a personal mentor and tutor to young adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to personally get to know the student in order to understand their unique engagement style. By doing this, I can mould the current curriculum around them, their learning style and personal needs. The curriculum for the age bracket will be followed with explicit detail, with regular assessment checks and personal target indicators. Whilst the learning environment is very relaxed, I strive to challenge every student and maximise their academic capabilities through a spectrum of mediums.

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old qualified teacher, who is enthusiatic about all areas of the curriculum and supporting children in their learning journey.
I have a particular interest in languages and Literacy, and enjoy a rewarding job as a classroom teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in the classroom for seven years. I have had a variety of posts, teaching many children from different backgrounds and with different learning styles.
I have experience teaching children from five to eleven, and I also work with children up to Year eight in my current post.
I am the Learning Support Co-ordinator at my place of work as well as Year One class teacher, which enables me to have a greater insight into different learning and teaching styles, and support the learning of a diverse range of children.

Tutoring Approach:

I will direct each session towards a clear learning objective, and plan various activities to support and consolidate this. I believe that every child has uniques learning styles, and I will endeavour to plan sessions to appeal to these. Children learn best when they are fully enaged, and I will plan sessions to appeal to any strengths or particular interests of each child.
I will build a good working relationship with each student, as children work best when they are comfortable in a situation.
I hope that the pupils I support will have great enjoyment and success as a result of receiving tuition from me.

Personal Description:
I am 54 now and consider myself to have reached a point where I have experience to share and yet still enjoy working with the students and helping them to get to their own potential. I am family orientated, considered by my friends and colleagues to be warm and nurturing.

I am passionate about my students reaching their potential, even if their starting point is not deemed to be high by academic standards.

I am used to a wide variety of challenges and opportunites having worked with special needs for many years.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught through all the age ranges starting off as a Internationally Qualified Montessori Teacher, working right through to University level as an accelerated learning practitioner (I trained with Tony Buzan). My core specialism is Dyslexia and Special Needs. I have worked with home schooled children for many years as well as continuing to do regular home tutoring after school hours and some Saturday mornings. I still run Montessori workshops particularly for those involved in homehomeschooling. I am also a Qualified and Insured Naturopath and teach a wide variety of alternative health and well-being workshops, as in my experience, health and well being are directly related to the students ability to learn effectively; so many students who have experienced challenges in assimilating learning often are found to have some form of health or allergy issues. .

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer a holistic style of teaching, using where possibly a multi - sensorial and multi -discipline approach. I believe that a good relationship with the student, which, while still being professional, engenders a sense of trust, caring and belief in the students ability to rise higher than they thought they could. I feel that one has to enable the student to find out where their true base line is through good assessment, then allow them to work on their challenges through the utilization of their strengths. I believe in supporting the student in developing their own, successful and sophisticated learning strategies which are unique to their learning style.
I have a current enhanced DBS certificate and am starting up a Montessori childminding facility.

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:
Are you worried about your child's progress in Maths or English? Do you want your child to go to a Grammar School? Would you like your child to achieve their potential? I can help.
I am an enthusiastic teacher who has a wide range of experience as a teacher, headteacher and an SEN Adviser with primary aged children. I love seeing children progress and become more confident in areas in which they have previously struggled. I keep myself constantly informed of new and exciting ways to motivate children and achieve their potential.
Exceptional Teaching, in my opinion, is a natural craft that some people have and others simply don't. I come from a family of teachers (my mother and also my sisters are teachers). It is a profession I have always enjoyed and have a special passion for. The bonus of course, is excellent grades.

Teaching Experience:

I have been in education for over 25 years, as a teacher, a Headteacher and an SEN Adviser. I have been fortunate enough to work in a range of excellent schools where I have taught all year groups. I pride myself in being able to help children, whatever their needs or abilities, to love learning and achieve their potential. I have tutored 1-1 for the last five years and have good relationships with the children and families that I work with. These children have gone on to achieve excellent results in their chosen areas e.g. improved confidence, improved attainment, achieving SATS levels 4 and 5 and succeeding in entrance exams for Grammar, Wide-ability and Independent schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My personal attitude towards all learning (especially tutoring) is that all children are entitled to a high quality education, which is tailored towards children's individual needs, so that they are able to make sufficient progress and enjoy their learning. I approach tutoring with a positive, can do attitude. I tailor each session to the individual child's strengths, weaknesses, interests and goals. I believe anyone can do well; it's just a question of finding the right way to learn it. One of the things that I find prevents children and adults from learning, particularly Mathematics, is the feeling of being rubbish at it. Your mindset certainly influences how well you do and once you are relaxed you learn so much better. I employ a combination of direct approaches and child-centered approaches when giving individual tutoring support. I am a very committed person, and will always strive to make sure that all children who are tutored are able to achieve their potential.

I am flexible, friendly and approachable person, having a key commitment towards high quality teaching and learning for all children. I firmly believe that different people learn in different ways, so no one way will suit all. You probably know more than you think, we will just work to make sure it can all be communicated. I look forward to discussing your child and how I can help and develop their potential.

Personal Description:
I'm a wife and mother of two daughters and I work in education. I can't say what age group I prefer working with as I just love the process of facilitating the learning of others and seeing them 'get it' - the light bulb moment! I've been there myself and it's great to see others have the same experience.

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.

Personal Description:
I am in my fifties and I have four grown up sons.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 20 years experience as a teacher and I am also a Dyslexia Specialist. I Can diagnose and support students with Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia, as well as Dyslexia. I have had a lot of success working with children and adults who have difficulty reading. I can help children increase their reading age, learn to spell, use punctuation and grammar, correctly and effectively.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient and supportive teacher. I believe in giving praise and encouragement to all my students to build their confidence and self esteem. I will assess their learning needs and design an individual learning plan for them. Learning should be fun, so I constantly look for new innovative methods of teaching which I can use with my students. I also respect student's privacy and will not discuss details of anyone I am working with.

Personal Description:
I am a 29 year old female. I have worked with children for a number of years now in the mainstream high school setting. I'm always studying myself, I recently completed a basic counselling skills course and I'm currently in the middle of an art-it's place in therapy course.

I'm currently working within a mainstream high school as a communication support worker, for students on the autism spectrum. I am enthusiastic and passionate about education. I want to support my students to achieve their full potential.

I am available during school holidays for tutoring during the day, or it's evenings and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I started working with inclusion doing art projects with students who have behaviour difficulties; then went on to be a teaching assistant supporting all academic areas on the curriculum with children aged 10-17. I can differentiate work down to very low levels and am aware of the current curriculum. I have worked with students of many abilities and was a key worker for a child who's Downs Syndrome.
I still work in mainstream but I'm now a specialist in autism, working with children on the autistic spectrum daily. I am aware of the challenges my students face with accessing work on the curriculum as well as the social side of things.

I have also supported my school by covering art lessons and helping students with coursework and homework.

I offer tutoring in the following areas:
-Reading & Writing Skills: reading feedback and writing for coursework (essay, report, article for publication, research)
-Study skills: how to read critically and how to write, making presentations, etc.

-Craft & Design: design process, presentation/rendering, Design and Technology, paper craft

-Art: Acrylic painting, Drawings and Rendering, Making Physical and 3D Models and crafts, Sketch book, Design Portfolio ( to help developing your portfolio for college or university interviews)

-Special needs: Differentiation for any subject up to GCSE/A'level and within the arts at university level working with students on homework, coursework and presentations who have learning difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

I always wanted to be an art teacher, that's why I went to university, but over the years working in a school I realised what I could achieve by remaining at the support level. I can give more of my time to small groups and 1:1, a lot more than a teacher can as I don't have all the paperwork and other commitments to many students that they have.

My aim as a tutor is to make art accessible and give my students confidence. Over the years I've seen lots of students feel like their work isn't good enough; I can support them by teaching the basic skills and building on their existing knowledge.

I am a very patient & positive tutor who can explain concepts in a way which can be understood by my students.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Angela and I am a fully qualified teacher. I have been teaching for 4 years and during that time I have taught across the whole of the primary age range, from Foundation-Year 6. I am currently working as a supply teacher as I have recently relocated to the area, which I am thoroughly enjoying! This enables me to give much more time into tutoring. I am a hardworking, patient and likable person who works hard to achieve goals.

Teaching Experience:

As before, I have been teaching for 4 years. During this time I have taught classes ranging from foundation to year 6 which has given me a wide breadth of the curriculum and how best to teach to each age range and suit needs of particular children. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and extremely enjoy tutoring as I notice the amount of progress that can be made from 1-1 tuition. During my 4 years of teaching I have been involved in an Ofsted inspection, in which I was graded 'Outstanding' for my work. I would like to use my teaching skills to support children who may need that 1-1 tuition to further children in their learning, in order to achieve the very best that they can. I have been tutoring for the past 3 years. In this time I have tutored mostly year 6 children through maths, literacy and reading support, as well as covering science. I have also supported younger children in years 1, 2,3, 4 and 5 through their day to day progress reaching their goals and beyond.

Personal Description:
I am a BSc Geography graduate currently studying for an MA in Education Practice at De Montfort University. I am due to start my PGCE Teacher Training in September at the University of Leicester. Currently, I work full time as a Teaching Assistant at a special educational needs school in Leicester. In the past I have worked as a personal mentor for young adults. I have a genuine passion for the acquisition of new knowledge and the delivery of my understanding to others.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a full time Teaching Assistant at a special educational needs school in Leicester. This role affords me the opportunity to teach a mixture of subjects to both groups of children and individuals in one to one sessions. Prior to this, I worked as a Sports Development Officer for Team Ltd, instructing large groups of children in a range of physical education activities. In addition, I have also been employed as a personal mentor and tutor to young adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to personally get to know the student in order to understand their unique engagement style. By doing this, I can mould the current curriculum around them, their learning style and personal needs. The curriculum for the age bracket will be followed with explicit detail, with regular assessment checks and personal target indicators. Whilst the learning environment is very relaxed, I strive to challenge every student and maximise their academic capabilities through a spectrum of mediums.
