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.

Tutoring Approach:

I have Special Needs University qualifications and counselling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

As a tutor, I encourage my students to reflect upon their mistakes and to understand how to tackle the next step of their learning, without having a negative response.

I usually have the first lesson together with the parents so that the student feels comfortable and parents can observe my teaching; I present a folder containing the CRB form, qualifications, QTS certificate and letters of recommendations from parents. I teach from home in a calm and stimulating environment.
The first lesson is only paid if the parent decides to continue tuition.

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 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:
**Book now for Year 6 SATs**


Hi, thank you for looking at my profile.

I specialise in helping children and adults with English, maths and general study skills, and over the past few years have achieved some excellent results.

I am very experienced, having worked with children and young people for 16 years in a number of roles: key worker at a pre-school, supply nursery nurse, supply teacher, class teacher, private tutor, nanny (UK and abroad) and more recently as a university support tutor.

I have a very calm, patient and friendly approach to tuition. I will explain things as many times as needed and use a variety of methods to make tricky topics memorable. I build excellent relationships with students, and they look forward to my sessions.

I use a range of resources and approaches, taking into account student preferences and different learning styles.

Teaching Experience:

My specialist subjects are English and Special Educational Needs. I am trained to teach dyslexic students, and have completed a course with the British Dyslexia Association on how to assess and teach learners with dyscalculia.

I am currently working as a dyslexia and study skills tutor for a number of local universities and tutoring privately in the evenings and at weekends. I am supporting students who have a range of situations and needs. These include:

*dyslexia
*dyspraxia
*dyscalculia (difficulty with maths)
*self esteem or confidence issues
*children who struggle at school due to emotional or behavioural issues
*children who have missed school for various reasons
*children who are home educated
*adults who want to `catch up` or improve their English and maths
*college and university students who need support with essay writing, proofreading and exam revision techniques

I taught in an inner city school for 8 years. Here, I gained experience with children aged 3-11 and their parents, from different backgrounds and cultures, and with a wide variety of needs.

I have also worked with many students to overcome confidence and self esteem issues, both in the classroom and as a tutor.

Over the past 4 years in my role as a tutor, my students have made excellent progress in terms of confidence, catching up with age-related expectations and achieving the desired level or above in 11+ or Year Six SATs.

As well as teaching, I have worked in a variety of settings as a nursery nurse and nanny. I have been able to build excellent relationships with parents and children and am still in touch with families that I have worked with over the years.

Feedback from a Masters level student on completion of her dissertation:

I would like to express my deepest thanks to my support tutor Zoe whose support has been most invaluable, without which I could not have possibly completed this project, and I am forever grateful for her help.
(Taken with permission from the acknowledgements of her dissertation, May 2015).

Tutoring Approach:

I vary my approach to suit each individual student. During our first meeting, we will get to know each other and discuss strengths and weaknesses, so that tuition can be tailored to fit your individual needs.

I have a very calm, patient and friendly approach to teaching. I will explain things as many times as needed and use a variety of methods to make tricky topics memorable. I build excellent relationships with students, and they look forward to my lessons.

Depending on age, I use a range of resources and approaches, taking into account student preferences and different learning styles.

Personal Description:
I am a well humoured and easy going with a keen interest in Art, Craft and Design who likes to keep up to date with the latest trends in many aspects of design from Jewellery to Furniture. I have a bachelors degree in Silversmithing and Metalwork and am currently working towards a masters degree in Education.

Teaching Experience:

I have just completed my forth full time year in teaching mainstream secondary school Design and Technology. I also have 3 years experience teaching A-level Design and Technology at a large sixth form college and GCSE Design and Technology in a Pupil Referral Unit for boys with behaviour difficulties and SEN (including Aspergers, Autism and Dyslexia.) At the Pupil Referral Unit I also began a morning literacy programme to improve the reading skills of students with primary school level abilities to great success. During my teaching training I also worked in a mainstream secondary school and a grammar school. The majority of my tutoring experience is with Primary age students covering 11+ exam entrance including verbal reasoning, english and maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a pupil focused tutor who believes that a variety of short, varied activities keeps students focused, productive and able to learn more effectively. My experience with SEN students has made me patient and believe that the key to successful tutoring is being well resourced. I undertake a limited amount of tutees in order to ensure increased availability for my tutees and to ensure that I am focused on the individuals I tutor and their needs. Above all I believe the students need constant positive reinforcement to increase motivation, self belief and therefore success.

My name is Alexandra and I am Greek. I studied Pre-school Education and I finished my Masters in Special Educational Needs in the University of Leeds. By the end of my MA I was part of a research project run by the School of Education focusing on reading interventions for students from 10-12. Then, I was working as a Learning Support Assistant in a secondary school in the UK where I had the opportunity to get familiarised with the UK Curriculum. At the moment I am member of a special school in England, working with students with various difficulties, disabilities, needs and syndromes. I love my job and I am passionate with the field. I firmly believe on the differentiation that every child needs, a process that really fascinates me.

Teaching Experience:

2015, SEN LSA in special school in the UK, Leeds
2014, Learning Support Assistant in the UK in a secondary school, Bradford
2013, Research and Administrative assistant in a Research Project , focusing on reading difficulties students have and how to help them, University of Leeds
2013: Volunteerism in Reception Class, Leeds
2012: Supporting adults with SEN in a Rehabilitation Centre, Greece
2010: Tutoring in Greek children to support them with their homework and projects for school , Greece
2009: Practical Placement in kindergarten, Greece

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in the differentiation of the learning process for every child. Pupils learn with different pace, different methods and different materials. Teachers need to be open-minded and support every single student offering chances and individualised education approach. Children have the right to access educational services, be safe and improve as members of our society.

Personal Description:
I am a trustworthy, hard-working and conscientious person. I am a quick learner with an exemplary timekeeping and attendance record. I take satisfaction in achieving high standards in any task I undertake, and possess a methodical and organised working approach. Equally capable of working both within a team and on an individual basis, my communication, interpersonal skills and knowledge enable me to interact with colleagues at all levels within the workplace. I love work with children from nursery, preschool and primary school up to stage 1.

Teaching Experience:

One very special working experience achievement was with children y3-4 and y5-6 in a primary school. I was not only teaching Italian Language but I was involved as producer and director of Goldilocks and the three bears in the Italian spoken language which has never been done before as a movie.
Date: from March to April 2005.
Actors were primary school children, which have been selected from the Head Teacher and me. I have trained them every week from March to April 2005 to play on different set. (Drama lessons included). The movie has been filmed in July 2005.
My experience was not only as an Italian Teacher but director and producer and composer for the editing of background music and special audio effects. This is the first time I have made my first movie. (17 minutes footage).
Sponsor for the project and investor was the Italian Consulate of Manchester (U.K.). Very good reward and payment + bonus for the hard work I have done in those months.

Tutoring Approach:

I can teach academic primary school subject up to stage 1 and Italian language for beginners, level 1 and 2 and advanced.

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:
I have recently returned to Scotland after 14 years teaching internationally. I live in the West End of Glasgow with Honey, my gorgeous little dog that I rescued in Hong Kong.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a teacher trainer in Hong Kong for 10 years, co-planning and co-teaching with local teachers. I specialised in teaching students who had difficulty in accessing the curriculum. Before this, I worked with the British Council teaching English to adults in Egypt and Korea. I also taught for several years in further education colleges in Scotland.

Tutoring Approach:

I listen, observe and then individualise my classes to suit students needs. I care passionately about teaching and take great pride in providing highly professional, enjoyable and ultimately fruitful classes

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.

Personal Description:
My name is Stavroula and I am from Cyprus. I am a native speaker of the Greek Language and I have both the ability and the skills required to learn someone the particular language as my degree is at "Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies". It is worth mentioning that I was awarded with the second prize at the annual essay competition that took place in Cyprus in 2008.

I hold a Master of Education, which expanded my knowledge regarding the area of education up to a significant degree. It is worth noting that my master's pathway was the area of special needs. Consequently, my independent study was about children with SEN and specifically their inclusion within mainstream settings. I strongly believe that each student regardless his/her disability should receive equal support and education. Additionally, I attended a nine- week course: "The Essential knowledge of Key Stage Teaching". These courses gave me the opportunity to come across with the British Educational System and obtain a valuable understanding of the most important aspects of it.

My social and communication skills are developed up to a remarkable level. I am really good at approaching children and creating friendly relations with them.

As an educator, I always try to be informed about contemporary methods of teaching and I pay a close attention to the different learning styles of each individual. I carefully consider the selection of the methods I apply in order to meet the needs of each student in the most effective way. Also, it is worth mentioning that I am able to cope with difficult behaviours and help children develop their confidence.

Teaching Experience:

I was offering private lessons of Modern Greek Language and Literature, History and Ancient Greek to students in Cyprus.
At the current moment I teach a number of students of all ages. I also teach Modern Greek A Level and I am able to prepare students for these exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have the ability to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each student. At the same time I believe in the improvement which can definitely be attainable by working hard. I always teach my students to set up goals. In my point of view this is the key to the success.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Maths and English teacher with successful teaching experience from KS2 to university entrance level. I have worked in independent and state schools as well as Further Education colleges. I am an expert in teaching and preparing students for KS2 SATs, 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams, GCSEs, IGCSEs and A-Levels (English) qualifications.

Teaching Experience:

I have eleven years of hands-on tutoring experience. I specialise in preparing pupils for GCSE and selective schools exams. Recently I held the position of Maths Lead Teacher in an independent school. Prior to that, I worked as a Maths teacher in a comprehensive school where I was responsible for planning and delivering lessons to students and monitoring their progress. Before I embarked on a Maths teaching career, I worked as a specialist teacher of Maths and English. My role in school was the to develop KS3/KS4 students` numeracy and literacy skills I supported the learning of identified pupils and classes in order to raise their levels of attainment in the two subjects. My teaching includes students from both ends of academic spectrum I supported the academic development of the Gifted and Talented students by introducing and running the UK Linguistics Olympiad. At present, I work for several private tutoring agencies in London and Hampshire where I run the CIE IGCSE/GCSE intensive revision classes (Edexcel, AQA and OCR exam boards). I also run the highly popular 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a reputation for quickly striking up an excellent and good-humoured teaching relationship with learners. By forming good relations with my students and explaining the required concepts clearly, I manage to keep them interested and guide them to achieve success. I always try to make learning with me colourful and fun, rather than frightening and onerous. I work keenly with students who struggle with their confidence and ability in Maths or English and effectively build enthusiasm and confidence in them. I have a great care and take responsibility for the safety and well-being of young people whilst they are under my supervision. I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate.
