Personal Description:
I am an Engineering/Energy Professional living in Aberdeen City. I have been in Aberdeen since 2008, originally was in for a masters' degree in Energy Futures (Oil & Gas Engineering). I have an excellent understanding of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry which are at the core of my undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and I still use today. I am a calm individual who understands that everyone is unique with different speed of comprehension and always try to find out the sparks in individuals. I enjoy teaching Mathematics to all levels, especially the young minds because I believe practicing, solving and understanding mathematics sharpens the brain in understanding and quickly solving other problems in life as they grow. I have over 5 years of experience; covering teaching in private homes of families, friends, acquaintances, and tutorial lessons/coaching centres. I have undertaken teaching secondary school students and a few 1st year undergraduate students. My approach in tutoring/teaching is to seek favourable environment best suited to students' level of assimilation and progress this through the length of time against a log and when there are difficulties propose alternatives to achieving the goal of understanding and mastering problem solving skills.

Personal Description:
I am a third year mechanical engineering student in Robert Gordon Unversity, Aberdeen. I did my IGCSE's and A/AS Levels back in Bahrain. I have always been a hard working student and top scoring student in my high school particularly in Maths and Physics. Because of my interest and knolwedge in Maths/Physics, I want to help other students who struggle with Maths/Physics and help them achieve good grades like I did back at high school and university. I truly believe that I have the capability to help many others achieve their full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have mostly given lessons to specific people whom my family knew who struggled with maths/physics. Most of them were middle school and high school students who wanted my help because of my good performance at high school. I have taught approximately 5 people before.
Most of these students passed their exams and improved dramatically from what they got before. Their grades were improved to either A or Bs.

Tutoring Approach:

My lesson structure follows the format:
1. Overview of full lessons in depth through text books and my notes
2. Youtube videos for further explanation of lessons
3. Example question practice
4. Past paper practice
My main aim is to help students who struggle with maths/physics by overcoming their mistakes and help them reach their full potential. As a tutor, I will provide them all of my knowledge and skills that helped me gain 3 A* in my A Levels. I will teach my students all of my past mistakes and how I overcame them in order to reach my full potential in Maths and Physics.

Personal Description:
I am an engineering masters graduate from the university of Aberdeen, and the founder of a digital skills education training company.
I am a calm and friendly person, who takes great care in each individuals academic development.

I have an excellent understanding of Mathematics and Physics, subjects which were the basis of my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I am enthusiastic and passionate about these subjects and enjoy imparting my knowledge unto my tutees and inspiring them.

In my free time, I am an avid reader and a keen sports player.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in 2009 with
Experience in tutoring undergraduate students in Mathematics
Experience in tutoring maths at A-Levels, Highers, GCSE, Standard grade and KS3 levels
Experience as digital skills tutor to elderly, disenfranchised and marginalised members of society

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach, is built on understanding the students learning styles, their strengths and weaknesses from the very onset. This allows me to tailor my approach to best suit their needs. The learning experience is one of comfort and energy.

I work on building the students confidence in the subject, by creating an understanding of the very basic concepts, before building on from there.I keep the student fully engaged, and apply a wide range of resources to enhance their learning experience.

Personal Description:
I am a Masters Student studying Oil and Gas Engineering in the University of Aberdeen, UK. I was the best Mathematics student during my Primary and Secondary School education (in virtually every class), so i was among the students selected from the mathematics club to represent the school in various Mathematics competitions, of which i won some prizes. I am a calm individual who understands that everyone is unique with different speed of comprehension. I enjoy teaching Mathematics to all levels, especially the young minds because I believe practicing, solving and understanding mathematics sharpens the brain in understanding and quickly solving other problems in life as they grow. I have over two years of experience; a year in teaching secondary school students in both a government and private school, and over a year experience in teaching a few 1st year undergraduate students. I also believe that mathematics can be understood by everyone, once placed in the right environment (quiet, fun, musical,etc) . My first task would be to find out which suits the student best.

Teaching Experience:

1) Over 1 year tutoring a few 1st year Undergraduate students
2) 1 year full-time teacher in both a private and a government secondary school

Tutoring Approach:

My initial approach would be; identifying the best environment (quiet, fun,etc) suitable for the particular individual, then comprehending the individual's speed or rate of understanding. I will pick up from this point and build up the individual's confidence by explaining the basics of approaching each question while solving as many questions as possible. In this way, the student would be able to tackle or attempt similar questions at his/her level.

Personal Description:
Hi, I am Hayes. I am originally from Hong Kong, and I came to study in Aberdeen University four years ago, and I recently graduated in Master of Arts in English and Language & Linguistics. As a native speaker of Cantonese and Mandarin, I am able to teach the two of my mother-tongue. Also, I am confident that my mathematics foundation formed in my high school years would allow me to teach Mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I was a voluntary tutor in my high school, teaching Mathematics and English as a second language. After coming to Aberdeen, I have helped my friends who were learning Mandarin in the university to achieve good grades in their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the most important job of a tutor is to inspire the tutee to think. It is impossible for people to learn just by reciting everything, they have to know how to analyse, then they will be able to tackle more difficult problems in the future.

Beta Kappa chi ( National Scientific Honor Society, Theta chapter, USA)

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Experience:
Since I have been a student all my life so did not get a chance to tutor. However I have experience to work with young people as a "Tutor" in the state run TRIO program in USA. This job has given me a clear understanding and significance of a good education, promoting effective learning, teaching and personal development. This first hand skill of working with children of school age has made me patient, tolerant and has also given me an ability to respond positively to special educational needs. Having this experience would definitely facilitate me to translate my knowledge better to pupils and that surely would aid them to understand the basic concepts.

I have taught the undergrads in Virginia State University, USA under the state run TRIO program

Tutoring Approach:

open to new ideas, initiator, like the tutee to solve the problem himself, but be a good guide,I believe in teaching patiently and with dedication. My approach to teaching is straightforward and begins with generating questions and curiosity within young people's minds so that they can think well.

I taught 2nd and 3rd Form (Yr 7 & 8) drama using existing schemes of work alongside those I created. I taught over 150 pupils per week and as their only drama teacher I was responsible for their reports, three-weekly grades and parent's evenings. The school were so pleased with my contributions to teaching they offered me twice my teaching hours in my second year. I also team taught Yr 9 lessons and I assisted with directing etc in GCSE and A-Level lessons. Alongside academic teaching I led Drama 'actives' after lessons where I created and lead a one hour drama workshop several times a week. Working at Christ's Hospital also gave me the chance to work in a busy theatre environment combining set design, prop making, theatre maintenance, stage management and front of house management.

Each Summer I taught English to children aged 7 - 12 from around the world. I lived on site (in a boarding school environment) and I was responsible for teaching, entertaining and caring for the children twenty four hours a day. Having worked for the company for several years I reached the level of Assistant Director and Head of TEFL for the residential course. I was responsible for a team of teaching staff and I ensured they were delivering suitable and stimulating English lessons throughout the course. I also taught a class of my own. As Assistant Director I was a senior part of the management team, ensuring all activity and teaching staff were working happily and correctly. In the absence of the Course Director it was my responsibility alone to ensure the smooth running of our course. I often had to deal with couriers and families and I know how to project a professional, caring, enthusiastic and genuine image. I developed my team work skills, learnt how to thrive under immense pressure and my communication skills were constantly used to their full potential.

During a work placement with the Sheffield based theatre company Point Blank I worked with a partner to devise and deliver a cultural drama workshop. I worked as a mentor for two international students who had travelled to the UK to teach school children about their cultures. I taught the two international students how to deliver a successful drama workshop and I helped them shape their own ideas into an educational and enjoyable drama workshop for Primary School children. Alongside this project I also worked with an English partner to create a cultural workshop for deprived children in the city. I contacted The Sheffield Children's Centre and created a relationship with them enabling us to take our workshop to underprivileged children who had never had the chance to express themselves through drama.

June - September 2006 - The Funzone - Playworker

The Fun Zone provided after-school and summer holiday childcare play schemes for children, aged three to twelve. I would lead activities, play group games, prepare and cook the children's meals, clean the rooms, supervise children and be responsible for groups of children on various outings and trips throughout the summer. I learnt how to work with children and how to work effectively to carry out duties such as cooking and cleaning, while making sure the children in my care were both entertained and safe.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly, fun and experienced tutor. I believe a healthy dose of humour and kindness is important when teaching and I am a very professional and hard working person.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Luis. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea. I am from Spain and I am very passionate about academia and learning in general.

My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology (biology), ocean dynamics and sediment geochemistry (chemistry). Data interpreting is part of my research work and it involves statistics of academic level and mathematical modelling.

I collaborated with AU Science Magazine writing blog posts and editing articles. I am currently involved in a Research Development initiative to create a collaborative framework within the University of Aberdeen for researchers and students alike.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a demonstrator at the University of Aberdeen since October 2014, where I assist in the following courses in two Schools:

School of Biological Sciences:
- Oceans and Society (SX1015)
- Animal Population Ecology (ZO3307)
- Ecology and Environmental Science (BI1511)

College of Natural and Computing Sciences:
- Chemistry for the Life Sciences (CM1020)
- Chemistry for the Physical Sciences (CM1021)

I have ample tutoring experience from when I was at University in Spain and I continue tutoring to this day in Aberdeen (+6 years). I have long-distance students whom I tutor via Skype. I was also a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students.

Tutoring Approach:

Where students find difficulties I like to break down concepts into simpler pieces that then assemble to represent the entire idea. I also think it is important to let the pupil know the purpose of these concepts in a wider context so that they can appreciate the value of learning the contents of the course.

Finally, I am an advocate of enjoying learning and always endeavour to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying for a Biological Sciences PhD. I have an MSc in Applied Marine Science and a first class honours BSc in Marine Biology.
I love my subject and want to share this with the next generation while helping them achieve the best that they can.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience in secondary level education in England, having completed the Student Associate Scheme at the end of my Bachelors Degree. In doing so I had experience working as a classroom assistant and running my own Biology lessons.
I have also worked as a demonstrator within the university.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't believe in giving the answers, it does not help anybody. My approach is to explore the question/problem/topic. If a question can be explored from a different angle then the answer is always reachable. Learning shouldn't be just memorising facts, but really understanding a topic. I love that moment when it just clicks!

Personal Description:
Currently studying full-time Pure and Applied Mathematics at the University of Aberdeen.

I am a friendly, conscientious individual who cares deeply about young people's personal and academic development.

When not working or studying, I enjoy taking care of my health through the gym and a variety of sports.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years of tutoring experience. I have personally tutored 40+ pupils of varying mathematical ability, which has allowed me to refine and become very confident in my approach.

A large number of my tutees were found through word-of-mouth from former tutees pleased with their results.

I now have quite a few reviews, I have been registered on other websites for years and would be more than happy to supply references from other past tutees for your peace of mind.

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that everyone deserves the best chance at school. However, more and more of my tutees are complaining that their schools are failing to provide that. It seems that due to funding cutbacks/lack of qualified teachers, only the most naturally gifted pupils are given the right attention and everyone else is left at the bottom of the pack.

I have no such prejudice. It does not matter to me if you are a straight A student looking for some insurance, or if you are a bottom set student who has always struggled with maths. All I expect from my tutees is their attention and a willingness to learn. If you care about your education and future prospects, then so do I.

I am available for tutoring throughout the year, even during the summer holidays for 1st/2nd year university resits.

I am available weekday evenings and at the weekend, just let me know which times would suit you. I reply very quickly.

I have a car so travelling to your home is not an issue, however I may require additional fuel money depending on your location.

I hope to pass on my quota of knowledge to build the upcoming chemist.
Chemistry is fun

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring throughout the four years of my undergraduate degree.

Tutoring Approach:

Patience and explaining terms in the most simple realistic way, but generally making chemistry practical and fun.

Personal Description:
I am a part time lecturer at Gray's working on the short courses programme. I teach on the Portfolio Building, Drawing and Mixed Media courses. I am shortly to have an exhibition at the Howden Park Centre in Livingston as part of a six month residency. I am Recent graduate of the Slade MFA program and I have been consistently exhibiting since, such as the Creekside open selected by Richard Deacon/Lisa Milroy, the BFA Futures at the Mall gallery, York College and the Zetta Hotel in London. I have also been establishing a drawing and painting workshop at Marymount International school and have given talks on my work and the benefits of doing an MA.

I came to Art in my 30's as a mature student via short courses. This form of education is a great way of developing artists through a different route than more traditional means while opening up opportunities to a diverse field of practitioners. I feel very passionate about education and how it has transformed my own life which has given me fantastic opportunities that I could never have thought of. I believe that art should be for all and that everyone has the potential to be a great artist.

My own work involves drawing from life through strict observation through the genre of still life in. I work in oil, watercolour and acrylic which continues into both portraits and landscapes. With these I explore the relationship between the hand and the eye, nature and culture, the raw and the cooked and how this dichotomy exists in the historical and contemporary art. For example I am interested in the Gesture of the hand in Velazquez, Titian and Tintoretto as apposed to established Renaissance painting which where drawn and then filled with colour. I see a mirror to this in more conceptual art such as Art and Language or Sol Le Witt compared to a gestural painters such as Philip Guston, Morandi or Joan Mitchell.

Teaching Experience:

Present- Gray's School of Art 'Foundation Portfolio Building/Plus'. Mixed Media and Drawing (Short Courses)

2016- Marymount International School, 'Drawing from a Personal Object' workshop, ongoing.

2015- Kingston University, MA presentation

Awards
2016 Aberdeen City Council Creative Funding
2016 BFA Futures Award- Finding the Future of Figurative Art
2015 The Desiree Prize for Painting
2015 Nominated for the Land Securities Studio Award
2015 The Bergman Residency, Taroudant, Morocco
2012 The AP Fitzpatrick Prize for Painting

Tutoring Approach:

I believe drawing to be at the basis of all work. I see having a firm grasp of drawing from life as a key skill behind any artistic endeavour.

My own skills include:

Drawing and painting. (Accurate measuring and proportion, perspective, colour and tone.)
Oil, acrylic and watercolour techniques, uses and preparation.
Extensive knowledge of grounds, substrates and supports.
Working with clay, wood and metal
Photography and documentation of work by with Photoshop and a DSLR
Bronze Casting
Current issues and developments in contemporary art
Developing ideas through practice and research into finished work.
Application and interview techniques including portfolio preparation.

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Kent in 2014, with a bachelors degree in Biochemistry. Since graduation, I have continuously worked in education; as a teaching assistant, a science technician and as a personal tutor. I have a love for science, learning and a keen interest in education. These are things that make me a good personal tutor.

Teaching Experience:

In both of my positions within secondary schools I worked alongside teachers, within the science department to help deliver information to students. Since January I have been working as a tutor in Maths and Science at nationals 3-5 level. In my position as a teaching assistant a large part of my role was to work with individuals with learning difficulties, I had to make sure that they were able to access what was being taught to them. I have further developed my ability to work with individuals with learning difficulties, as well as those with high attainment. I have one to one tutoring experience from the ages of 8-18 years, with my specialty being in Science and Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it is important to listen to the student and find the areas in which they most need help. There is normally more than one method that can be used to both learn and understand, finding the way that works best for an individual is something that I aim to achieve. It is also my aim to tailor tutoring sessions to the needs of the individual. There can be multiple ways to teach the same piece of information, finding the one that best suites an individual allows the best to be achieved within a session.

Personal Description:
A Master of Mathematics graduate from UEA in Norwich, with a year studying in Melbourne Australia. I have great experience tutoring with various age groups and personalities.

I have enjoyed tutoring part time and full time for the past few years whilst learning a Postgraduate Diploma course since University. I was subsequently contracted in by a local college to provide individual and group tutoring sessions to underachieving students, during and after school.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring GCSE maths in Year 13, providing a very structured learning by my school. The students engaged well and it helped to have people of a similar age that the students could relate to, enabling a more relaxed learning atmosphere. I also informally helped peers of various levels whilst at university, maths students but also engineering and foundation levels. When my services were required in a particular area, then they asked for help on short notice.

On top of this I've been tutoring over the past 4 years, usually working 7 days a week from the new year onward. Peak hours ranged in excess of 40hrs of tutoring for several months. I've therefore assessed the likely weaknesses of a student and have already provided and perfected methods of explanation.

Tutoring Approach:

Can look at casual tutoring of areas of difficulty, or can do more structured learning of a curriculum, either intense learning or weekly troubleshooting. I've established good quality material for any level. Plenty of students just require good material and direction for their efforts.

The first meeting will be free with the aim of getting to know one another and the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, and at what pace the student requires. At which point a structured plan of action can be drawn up. In some cases the tutee may lack the confidence in areas, but can in fact do what's required. Even a casual troubleshooting session every now and then can set their worries at rest.

Should extracurricular material be required or wanted then I'll be happy to provide. This material might not be hard for the tutee, but will help link in various areas of mathematics and will require a little thought about the patterns seen.

  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have a Doctorate in Languages and Literatures from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy and an MSc in Corporate Communications and Public Affairs from RGU.

I love teaching and using my communication and interpersonal skills with people of any age, nationality and background.
I enjoy helping students achieve proficiency in the languages I teach, become confident communicators in writing, listening and speaking whether is for work, study or leisure.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching to people of various ages and backgrounds since 2009 at Aberdeen College, Aberdeen Courses and as a
freelancer.
I have taught people coming from oil and gas organizations and working offshore to school students preparing for National 5 and other exams to people just wanting to learn for hobby or leisure.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is mainly focussed on grammar, conversation and exercises. However, depending on the level and nature of the classes (school, academic or casual learning), I tailor my lessons to meet the tutee's personal requirements and needs.
I am aware of all the difficulties of learning a foreign language, therefore I make sure that the students not only have an effective class but also an enjoyable time.

I use grammar books, exercises, topics that students can talk or write about according to the level, newspapers, magazines, games and more!

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student with a passion for impacting knowledge in children. I have worked with children for the past 10 years on various subjects.

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. I equally tutor chemical engineering students at the university.

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.
