Personal Description:
I am BA Graduate from Poland where after graduation from university, I worked as a teacher of English as an additional language. 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.

Tutoring Approach:

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 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:
My name is Teresa and I am a trainee Educational Psychologist currently studying for a Doctorate in Child, Community and Educational Psychology. I hold a BSc degree in Clinical Psychology and a PGCE teaching qualification specialising in Primary Languages. I also hold MSc Credits in Science. I have experience teaching in mainstream and special educational needs schools with primary school aged children and have worked in Secondary Education settings. I hold a current CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a qualified teacher with experience in Early years up to year 6. I have experience tutoring Key Stage 3 students outside of school and University students. I also have a lot of experience with special educational needs. I currently work/study as an Educational Psychologist so have regular contact with children, adolescents and young adults.

Tutoring Approach:

My first step will be to find out exactly what a tutee wants to get from the tutoring and how they best learn. Then we can collaboratively make a timetable and plan that suits both of us. My tutoring style is difficult to describe as it will vary from individual to individual. I always try to make use of resources which support the learning style and will incorporate the child's interests into my lesson plans. I feel that it is important to be flexible and will ask the tutee if there is anything they want me to do differently.

Personal Description:
I enjoy reading, walking and I like to keep fit and active. I am constantly wanting to learn new things and develop myself academically.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching and being with students who are wanting to learn and keen to do well. Conversely, I enjoy a challenge and enjoy teaching those who aren't as willing to pursue and achieve their goals. I have the ability to work well with a variety of people and furthermore, the ability to remain calm in a pressured environment. I am seen as a likeable and Honest person who is hard working and believes good tutoring begins with the child.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a Special Needs School for five years as the head of English. I taught English to a range of ages from eight to sixteen years of age. I tutored a high school student one evening a week during her final GCSE year and she has achieved a GCSE in English as a result and more recently I have tutored a student who no longer attended school who required my services for a few hours during the week to complete her GCSE in English and she also achieved a GCSE in English as a result. I am currently tutoring English and Maths to a year three and a year five and Maths to a year six student.

Tutoring Approach:

As with all teaching I believe good tutoring begins with the child and the confidence the tutor instills within the child to achieve the best. Its about working with the knowledge, skills and attitude they already possess and nurturing these. I believe that all children learn in different ways and ensure that the needs of visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners are met.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and enjoy teaching all subjects, in particular maths and literacy. I strive to make learning interactive and fun for children and get a lot of satisfaction from helping children to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher and work mainly with 7-11 year olds. Prior to qualifying I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, often working on a one-to-one basis with children. I have a good range of teaching methods which I use to help children develop their knowledge and learning skills. I am able to build strong relationships with children, encouraging and leading them to become confident, independent learners. In addition to primary teaching I also have experience of teaching GCSE maths and level 2 adult maths.

Tutoring Approach:

All children are individuals and learn in different ways. I would undertake an initial assessment for your child and tailor lessons accordingly. I will always look at what children can do and work with them to discover the gaps in their knowledge and any misconceptions they may have. I feel it is important to set achievable targets and build up children's confidence in their own abilities. Linking the teaching of literacy and maths to other subjects and real life situations makes learning more meaningful to children.

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 am a 25 year old Art Psychotherapy Master's student. I hold a degree in Fine Art from Newcastle University and have extensive experience working with vulnerable people. I worked as a support worker with adults and children with learning disabilities, and have held workshops for adults and children in Art. I have worked for the NSPCC, holding assemblies and workshops with children aged 9-11, and worked extensively over 3 summers as an Art Counselor at a summer programme in the USA for teenagers, as well as a Senior Mentor for 14-17 year olds in London. I have also worked at the Baltic centre of contemporary art in Newcastle as a Gallery Assistant, running workshops for young people and their families. As an Art Psychotherapy Trainee I have worked in a therapeutic capacity in individual weekly sessions with children from 4-11 and adult male offenders in the NHS. I am able to teach a varied range of subjects from Art to English and English Literature, in which I hold the highest grade in Cyprus for my English Literature GCSE taken in 2006.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked both in a group setting or individual mentoring sessions with young people, as well as with adults in an Art and Aphasia class. I have taught groups of young people on technique and style of artwork as well as curating and art history classes whilst an art counselor for teenagers. I have also worked closely with primary school children. As both an undergraduate and postgraduate student I have informally mentored several of my peers, proof-reading essays and helping with the structure, writing and formalities of essay writing to a degree standard.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an incredibly friendly, enthusiastic and non-judgemental individual. I am genuinely interested in people and am passionate in helping people find confidence in their own artistic abilities. I love working closely with people and helping them in any way possible. I am open-minded, calm and sensitive. In addition, I am very skilled in traditional forms of art such as painting drawing and photography and keen to use my skills to help others in any way possible. As an art psychotherapy trainee I have worked therapeutically and use this approach to encourage individuals to feel safe to express themselves as well as tailor my approach to meet their needs.

I am a fully trained secondary school teacher, specialising in Art & Design and Photography at KS3, KS4 & KS5. I have 8 years teaching experience, including working as a specialist Learning Support Teacher, and in Special Needs schools catering for children and young adults with a range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple disabilities.

I have particular expertise in studio practice (art and design), digital and darkroom photography (theory, history and practice), literacy, social and vocational skills, as well as History of Art, Anthropology and History of Medicine at undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at undergraduate level, having taught gallery-based first year History of Art courses, for University College London's History of Art Department. I am also currently teaching part time at the University of Manchester on the History of Art degree programme.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a one-to-one, flexible approach to learning and teaching, which first establishes the needs and goals of the student, and then sets out clearly structured strategies for achieving these goals. These may be results-focused when preparing for exams, or aimed at developing a broader understanding of a subject area, depending upon the student's own priorities. I am happy to work with any course materials the student may provide, and I am familiar with all current GCSE and A Level syllabuses. I am able to guide both GCSE and A Level students through their studies, offering consistent, dedicated 1-2-1 tuition for the full term of the course. I can also provide practical tuition for students who are preparing their art portfolios for University submission, and can offer assistance with UCAS forms and references for students who undertake long-term A Level tuition with me.

Tutoring may take place at the student's home, or at my art studio in central Manchester, where I can provide a range of art materials and resources by prior arrangement, for more intensive practical art sessions. Please note that I can travel within 20 miles of central Manchester based on the fee structure quoted below, travelling further will incur a small additional fuel fee.

I have had recent successes with my private students, one of whom attended one-to-one sessions at my Manchester studio for 8 weeks and improved her predicted GCSE Art result of a B by two grades, achieving an A* in her final art exam. My most recent undergraduate student also attained a First overall in her History of Art degree, achieving a high score of 78 on her dissertation project, with intensive tutorial support conducted via Skype.

*Please note that due to the time-intensive nature of undergraduate level tutoring, I am only able to take on a maximum of three undergraduate tutees at any given time. Please see below for my current availability for tutoring at this level.*

I am currently tutoring ONE undergraduate student.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS:

"I wanted a tutor to give me help and advice on my undergraduate history of art dissertation. I needed reassurance that what I was writing was okay and some one to proof read and give me their opinion on my arguments. Gemma was brilliant, she gave me the confidence that I needed to keep going with my dissertation by reassuring me that I was on the right track. She discussed my ideas with me in detail, proof read all of my work and suggested and sourced articles that I might want to have a look at. I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a First in History of Art and Media and I know that I owe Gemma a huge thank you for the support she gave me on the way to achieving this."

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 am a Cambridge graduate and have been a qualified teacher of languages (French and German) and English as an Additional Language for four years, working in secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I enjoy working with all age groups from primary children to GCSE, A Level and degree level. I have also trained and worked as a translator specialising in business and financial translations, and continue to do so on a freelance basis.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE at the University of Birmingham in 2009 and have been teaching for the last 4 years at secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I have taught French and German to all secondary age groups from years 7 to 13, including a number of GCSE and A Level groups. I have good knowledge of examination requirements, including GCSE controlled assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is tailored to the needs of the individual student. Generally, I try to create a balance between the different language skills such as writing and speaking, as well as including vocabulary and grammar work. With exam students in particular, I focus on the syllabus requirements including preparation for the controlled assessment tasks at GCSE and the A Level speaking exams. I also work on exam skills and techniques for listening, reading and memorisation. An important part of my work is boosting students' confident and making lessons enjoyable as well as productive.
I tutor from home or can travel to you, dependent on location.

Personal Description:
I am a young recent masters graduate with a passion for impacting knowledge in children. I have worked with children for the past 10 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children aged between 4 and 11 maths/reading and writing in the past. This was mostly voluntary due to the passion I have for children.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach with school books and internet materials. Visual aid is a necessity as it give a clearer picture of what is being taught. The children are made to reflect on what has been learnt prior to the start of a new session. I also take time to study the children in order to identify the strengths and areas that need improvements.

Personal Description:
I am a semi-retired teacher and I have recently moved to the Camberley area to be closer to my children and their ever expanding families. I am very patient and approachable and have always gained great satisfaction in helping children to achieve their full potential.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching career started with empathy for the Montessori approach to educating the young child. My experience continued into primary and secondary years education, where I specialized in teaching Maths and English. After having one of my own children diagnosed with dyslexia, I became a dyslexic tutor and started a specialist unit in a secondary school in Eastbourne. I also teach Phonics and thoroughly enjoy helping children make sense of our complex language. For the past 12 years I have been teaching English as a foreign language to both children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been tutoring for over 20 years and have had excellent results with all ages. I devise individual programmes best suited to encourage maximum progress, whilst making the whole learning experience fun. I am very patient and I make sure that my students feel relaxed and able to learn at their own pace.
