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.

I can motivate my tutorees and make session good fun and enjoyable learning practice. I use variety of resources and I use my bilingual skills to support those who struggle to communicate and understand English. I never give up and I do my best to support as much as I can. So let's learn !!

Personal Description:
I am a caring and patient teacher . I develop good relationships with my pupils and care about their general well being. I adapt teaching aproaches to suit individual pupils to enable them to engage with the learning in a postive and supportive way. Children say they like my lessons and enjoy being tutored by me.
If you home school your child I can provide tutoring of a specific subject area fit around your timetable and the way your child prefers to learn.
I am also a parent of boys with SEN,(dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and adhd) and have a good knowledge of special education needs and the impact of these on teaching, learning and home life.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 5 years in the primary age range and really enjoy it. I have been privately tutoring for 6 years covering both all literacy areas and maths. I have up-to-date training in the new grammar, spelling and punctuation KS2 SAT's paper. In the area of spelling, I have current experience in the synthetic phonics approach. I have used this from the beginning stages in year 1, and also adapted teaching with the support of practical materials to pupils in KS2.
I can provide references from parents of current pupils.

I am able to support your child through the transition into secondary school, providing practical ideas to get ready and support during the first term to enable them to remain positive about their potential as a learner. I can also help advise on issues arising from difficulties in personal organisation from moving around the school to coping with having the right things in their bag on a daily basis.

I can tutor pupils through secondary education in English and English literature. I can support those who are experiencing dyslexic issues and need some support with homework.

Tutoring Approach:

I treat each child as an individual taking into account both parents and the pupils views and needs. I provide suport to catch up on missed areas of basic skills, which is delaying learning, as well as being able to support targets set by school for the pupils individual progress. Through an initial consultation I seek to find out what the needs are and, with parents and pupil, plan suitable help to reach their goals. I share objectives with parents and pupils and give regular feed back to both to reach those goals. I belive it is important for all to see progress is being made. With parents and pupils permission, I like to make contact with their teacher to work with class teacher in identifing areas of difficulty and planning appropriate support. I find that this approach give the maximum benefit for all concerned.
The greatest difference I make to my pupils is to increase their confidence which in turn enables them to be more willing to take part in whole class sessions at school. Teachers of at least 2 of my pupils have remarked on the difference in attitude of the pupils who I have tutored.

Personal Description:
I currently work on a one to one and small group basis with students of various ages in a Medical Pupil Referral unit I find the one to one contact simulating and highly rewarding. I have taught for over 30 years and am an Advanced Skills Teacher. I have always wanted to teach and love what I do. I am patient, understanding, supportive and highly aware of the need to enable the student to achieve. I work through praise and careful guidance work to ensure the student gets the most from the one to one contact. I am educated to Masters degree level and have taught in both comprehensive schools and special needs units. I believe in a child centred approach to learning and always aim to work for and with the student.

Teaching Experience:

I was Head of Drama in a school in Dorset for seventeen years. During that time I worked extensively with children of all ages. I have trained teachers and guided those new to the teaching profession successfully through the early stages of their careers in teaching. I have directed numerous school and examination productions which has given me an excellent knowledge of plays and productions for use with English and Drama teaching. I have taught adults GCSE Psychology with a very good success rate. I have enjoyed the opportunities teaching in both the comprehensive and adult sectors have given me and I hope to continue this type of tuition through a more individual and one to one basis.
I am currently working with students who are unable to access school due to medical conditions. This has enabled me to further develop and extend my approaches and strategies for one to one teaching and small group situations.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is always to work with the needs of the student involved. I always listen to their requirements and tailor my teaching to what is needed. I value student interaction and would hope to use as much student based ideas and thoughts where this is possible. I have an attitude to teaching which always aims to enable the learner in a positive and supportive environment.
I have a good sense of humour, I am patient , a very good listener and an individual who works in a proactive manner. I create and work with a range of resources which are specific to the topic and area being studied and also create resources tailor made for the student involved. I use praise and positive areas continually as I believe we all like to receive positive thoughts about ourselves and this is a means to promoting a good and solid foundation to study techniques.
Although I have been teaching for a long time I really enjoy the challenges,satisfaction and creativity teaching offers. For every student I work with I plan and create personal , individual lessons and approaches which are appropriate for each student. This approach has led to satisfied individuals at all levels.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old Primary PGCE student, with a range of experience working with children and young people. In particular, I have worked with children who experience barriers to learning and I enjoy aiding them to experience success in education. I am a fun but hard-working and reliable individual with a passion for working with children.

Teaching Experience:

Before embarking on my current course, I worked as a teaching assistant in both primary and post-primary settings. I provided support to children with English as an additional language and with special educational needs in both settings. I was responsible for planning, setting targets and assessment of the children I worked with. I also supervised a Homework Club, providing assistance to post-primary children in various subjects including children with special education needs and those who are gifted and talented. During this 2 year period, I tutored a number of children in the evenings on a one to one basis ranging in age from Year 1 to Year 6, and I developed very positive relationships with the families I worked with.

I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and during university placements, often took on a teaching role working with children one-to-one or in small groups; assessing and delivering therapy in a child-centred approach. I have completed my first school placement for my PGCE course; I worked in a Year 1 class in which I observed and evaluated the class teacher, then taught lessons independently.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe using a child-centred approach is key to success. I consider what might interest and motivate the child in terms of resources and materials, and work at a pace appropriate for the child. It is important for the child to experience success but also to be appropriately challenged in order to reach their potential. I embrace a fun approach when working with children and would like to provide them with a positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
I am currently a part-time Lecturer and Academic Writing Tutor at the University of Warwick, where I teach Romantic and Victorian Poetry, English and French Romanticism, Literary Theory and Study Skills / Academic Writing Skills. I am the author of Dialogue, Didacticism and the Genres of Dispute: Literary Dialogues in an Age of Revolution (London: Pickering & Chatto), which uncovers the neglected role and significance of genre in Romantic Studies, I have published numerous academic journal articles and I am a regular contributor to The English Review, the UK's leading English subject magazine for AS / A2 English students. I have a particular interest in dyslexia and teaching and learning strategies for dyslexic students (I am dyslexic myself and was educated in accordance with the Morpheme and Unisensory approach pioneered at Maples Hayes School and Research Centre, where I was formally a pupil and Deputy Head Boy). I also run a successful academic proofreading service as a further means of supplementing my income...

Teaching Experience:

I have over 6 years of teaching experience at the University of Warwick and have been providing private tuition for over 3 years. During 'A' level resits in January 2013, my cohort of tutees all achieved grade 'A's or A * having previously attained Cs, Ds or even Es. These results have been repeated this year (June 2014) and all of my private students have attained grades A or A* in their coursework and a mixture of As, Bs and Cs in exams and resists in which they previously got Es and even Us prior to receiving private tuition. All of my students have subsequently secured places at their first choice universities having received outstanding 'A' level results. I have taught in a variety of formats including large group lectures, seminars and one-to-one tutorials. I have also delivered a great deal of individualized study skills sessions for students, including those for whom English is a second language. I have also undertaken numerous courses through the University of Warwick's Learning and Development Centre and the internationally renowned Centre for Creativity and Performance in Teaching and Learning (CAPITAL). I have studied for and obtained the university's teaching qualification for Higher Education (Postgraduate Award: Academic and Professional Practice) and I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, member of the Institute for Professional Tutors and member of The Tutors' Association. I also hold a City & Guilds 7302 Certificate in Delivering Learning, so potential tutees / parents can be assured that I have both the experience and qualifications to deliver first class, highly individualized learning across a wide variety of levels from GCSE to postgraduates.

Tutoring Approach:

As a dyslexic myself my teaching philosophy centres around the needs of each individual student rather than attempting to adopt a 'one size fits all' mentality. I see each students needs and learning styles as being unique, and I adopt my tutoring styles accordingly. More generally, however, I am an ardent believer in keeping things as simple and informal as possible, and I pay particular attention to the careful, logical, methodical sequencing of ideas in order to structure learning, revision and knowledge retention in the most productive and readily assimilated manner possible - a strategy which has derived in part from my own research into dyslexia. I am approachable, very friendly, innovative, flexible and informal, so students who perhaps feel let down by the mainstream education system would particularly benefit from my approach.
I ALWAYS arrange to see students for an initial meeting once contact details have been exchanged in order to fully explore what the student / parents are aiming to gain from private tutoring and to discuss what approaches, learning styles and support is required. #THIS IS A FREE MEETING WHICH I OFFER ALL OF MY PROSPECTIVE TUTEES#


Please note that unlike some tutors, I am a SPECIALIST IN ENGLISH LITERATURE, LANGUAGE AND ACADEMIC WRITING ONLY - I DO NOT BELIEVE IN TRYING TO OFFER MORE SUBJECTS AS A MEANS OF MAXIMIZING INCOME!

Personal Description:
I am a father of three children, two of whom have finished university and one about to start.
I've been married for 32 years - to the same lady!
My original degree was in Civil Engineering which I did for 25 years, then I requalified as a Primary teacher about 10 years ago.
I do a lot of singing and have competed internationally for years - I am also the Musical Director of a choir.
About 10 years go, I built my own house - I'm just about to finish the garden!
Retirement approaches as a teacher, but I'm not ready to stop.

Teaching Experience:

I completed the Graduate (Teacher) Training Program 10 years ago and up until December 2012 I worked in a Special Needs School ever since, specialising in autism and learning disability.
I used to run a small class of students who required constant 1 to 1 support, and I mostly delivered the Primary Curriculum.
I now work for Nottingham City Council in the Inclusive Education Service as an Autism Team Teacher, delivering specialist support and training to mainstream teachers in both primary and secondary settings.

Tutoring Approach:

My first task is to build a relationship with my student whereby they (and their parents) know they can trust me and we can work together in a relaxed atmosphere.
I use an online software package to deliver, assess and report progress, and it covers literacy, numeracy and science up to Year 6. This package is ideal for both primary mainstream and older special needs students , and can include homework tasks where appropriate.
Ideally, I would prefer to work face-to-face with my students, either at their home or mine, but this is not absolutely necessary in these days of Skype. Probably some sort of mix of delivery is not a bad idea.
My purpose is to help students achieve their full potential - whatever that may be. Sometimes this will simply involve unlocking a few doors, sometimes it may contribute positively to exams - it all depends upon the individual.

Personal Description:
I am a warm, friendly and outgoing person with an excellent ability to build a rapport with my students. I love languages and am passionate in particular about English. I speak Welsh to a good level as well as some Spanish and French. I love literature and drama and am adept at finding new and unique pieces and quite often construct my own writing. I love working with children and find great joy in helping them to succeed and achieve their goals. I find working with children is exciting and no 2 days are the same. Mainly I love working with children because I often find that they teach me as much as I teach them!

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced tutor with a history of achieving results. I am a qualified primary teacher with experience of tutoring in KS2 and KS3. I have experience tutoring children who are looked after by the local authority, children who have additional learning needs and children who are gifted and require further stretch and challenge. I have several summer's experience teaching at English summer schools for children from France or Spain and as a result my technical knowledge of English language is excellent.

I also have experience of teaching small classes of adults and am able to adapt my teaching and lessons to suit a more adult approach.

Prior to teaching I worked as a supply TA as a range of local schools and as a result have a wealth of experience with all kinds of children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring in one word is fun. As a teacher I know how hard children work in school and therefore understand that any extra sessions need to be fun and active to keep their attention. I always do an introductory session where the tutee and I simply get to know each other through fun activities. I then use this information to personally tailor the sessions to the needs and interests of that person. I find this helps to engage even the most reluctant learners and enables them to get to grips with the material.

Personal Description:
I have just successfully completed my MA in Special Educational Needs of University of Leeds. Through my studies I had the opportunity to deepen my knowledge in various fiends of Special Education and apply effective strategies to encourage learning in a more creative way.

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.

Personal Description:
Having grown up with my younger sister who has learning difficulties, I witnessed first-hand, the struggles and the triumphs she went through during her school career and it instilled in me a passion for supporting students with Special Needs. I worked for 8 years with a charity providing respite care for families of children and young people with a range of difficulties, and as a TA in a Special School before my Teacher Training.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my Teacher Training at The University of Hull - a 3 year Primary Teaching Degree for which I achieved a 2:1 with Outstanding teaching placements. Since graduating, I have taught Years 1-3 in an inner London Primary school and always ensured children made accelerated progress. During this time I took on responsibility for Science across the school, as well as the achievement of children with English as an Additional Language.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to inspire children, create a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge. I believe in a practical approach to learning by planning activities that will capture interest - enjoy and achieve! Really understanding students strengths as well as their areas for development is the starting point for successful tutoring.

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.
