Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable, fifth year medical student currently studying at Imperial College London. I am very passionate about education and I find great satisfaction in helping people achieve.

I have GCSEs in Maths, German, French, Geography, Graphics, English Literature, English Language, Religious Studies, IT, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, A2 levels in Maths, Chemistry and Biology and an AS level in Geography. Before commencing my medical studies I read Biochemistry for 4 years at Warwick University and achieved a 2:1.

Due to my experience in applying to medical school I am happy to help with personal statements, UKCAT and interview technique. Having sat in on the interview panels for 2 years at Imperial I can give first hand advice on exactly what medical schools are looking for at interview, and what they want to read on a personal statement.

Teaching Experience:

At Warwick University I was employed as a Biostatistics tutors for the first years for 1 academic year. I also have an abundance of experience working with younger children through various volunteering schemes and therefore I am experienced in helping children of all ages reach their full potential in many aspects of their lives, not just academically.
I have taken 3 students through their GCSEs over the last couple of years and have relished watching their grades and confidence improve

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring tutoring to each individual's learning style to get the best out of our time together. I do this whilst also trying to create an enjoyable working environment to encourage maximum learning potential. This is especially important with younger students; I want them to enjoy our sessions so that they look forward to them and get the most out of them.
I am also happy to set work to be done outside of the sessions, which can then be worked on together in future meetings.

Personal Description:
It is my aim to get my students the best possible mark, and that is First Class degree at BSc or MSc level and A* at the A-Level. But I do require your commitment and willingness to help yourself so that we can achieve this goal together.

Feedback:

I hold one of the highest feedbacks in private tutoring in my field.



Recent results:

University: Top results, as you can see from the feedback. One of my students has created history by being the youngest to achieve a First Class Honours degree in Economics, at the age of 19.



A-level: I prepare a select few students every year and have produced quality results. A student of mine got 100% in Unit 3 Economics.

Qualifications: Having received A*s in A-level, First Class Honours (distinction) at the University level and qualifying as a Chartered Accountant (ICAS), I specialise in Finance, Accounting, Business and Economics subjects.

Teaching Experience:

Experience:
I have taught a variety of students ranging from O-level to Masters/MBA level now over the last few years. My feedback speaks for itself. My students have obtained outstanding results at the degree level, and those at A-level have gone on to universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, UCL, Imperial, in some cases with full scholarship.

Oxbridge:
Having studied at University of Cambridge myself, I have the right skill set to guide you to Oxbridge. But I would require your commitment and persistence in that, as it is an incredibly competitive process.

Tutoring Approach:

Over time, I have developed various teaching techniques through experience and knowledge, given each student in unique. I prefer to set the objectives first with the time scale available, and then work towards meeting those objectives. Whether you require concepts clarification with respect to assignments or exams, I tailor my approach accordingly.

I have a precise approach which is very relevant to the way concepts and examination works. Obviously, examiners are looking for different things at the A- Level as compared to degree level and my practical approach is tailored according to the content and syllabus, therefore maximising the output from the time I spend with my students.

P.S. To tutor at home, I need to factor in the travel cost and time, so charge rate will be slightly more depending on the post code.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!
I have lived in London for the past 10 years. I previously lived and studied in Milan, Italy where I obtained my university degree. For a short while I also lived in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I did some of my studies. I have tutored students in both Milan and London, face-to-face as well as online, and have helped them improve in the subject matters they struggled with.
I get on well with people of all ages and backgrounds. I take the time to find the right studying approach that works for each tutee to ensure they pick up the material as effectively as possible. My goal in tutoring is to help tutees understand and learn the material in the easiest way so they can improve their knowledge without feeling it as a burden.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously taught English as a foreign language, Italian and French to children aged 9-13, teenagers and adults. My tutees markedly improve their knowledge and manage to fill the gaps and prepare for exams or achieve the desired grade. In my experience it takes tutees 1-2 months to notice a difference and 3-6 months to feel more confident with the language, though of course this depends on commitment levels and the difficulty experienced by the person.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing for me is to find out where specifically the tutee has difficulties or gaps with the subject. I also take into consideration how a student normally studies to work out what approach works best for them.
I am a strong believer in using a calm approach in tutoring as it is most effective to help set in the knowledge and achieve best results.

Personal Description:
In all these years, I have tried to transfer my knowledge to everybody I had sat down to help with his/her economics and business exams (especially accounting and finance). I have provided, and still do when necessary, tuition to members of the family and friends.
Even in College, I have assisted friends in their maths and accounting courses, aiming at helping them understand the methodology that is behind numbers.
I have high confidence in myself that I can succeed in a private teaching/tutoring role. I have always admired young people's minds, and I believe that a teacher's responsibility is to help them both shape them and enrich them within the frame of each individual's personality.

Teaching Experience:

My current position is Lecturer in Finance in one of the leading private business schools in the UK. I am focusing in those areas that I have had a 17 year working experience. Working in the real business world for all these years is an asset for me, which will definitely help me transfer the knowledge I have gained, to younger people.
I have also been recently appointed by a secondary school, as Accounting tutor for a group of students to assist and prepare them for their A2 Accounting exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always believed that the best approach to tutoring is the pen and paper approach. That is, I find necessary for a student to practice as much as possible through exercises and problem solving. And as ancient Greeks once said: "Reviewing is the mother of knowledge".

Personal Description:
Hello,

My name is Ina and I teach languages from home in my spare time and mostly on weekends.

Teaching Experience:

During my studies in high school I had the opportunity to gain a considerable work experience in various well known and reputable companies in my country. I worked as a language tutor and interpreter in two language centres, a translation agency and a real estate company. In addition, I had the opportunity to work as an office administrator in an international association, where I was given the responsibility for the organisation of cultural events and campaigns, recruitment and management of Italian tutors, as well as for communication and assistance to clients and members of the organisation. I currently work in the field of HR, but as teaching is an everlasting passion, I like to develop myself and help students in my spare time.

Tutoring Approach:

I am eager to discover the best approach for each individual and task and work accordingly. I have always applied my creativity and my work experience and people skills have helped develop this further.

Personal Description:
I am a First Class Psychology and Sociology graduate from the University of Cambridge (2012-2015).

Teaching Experience:

I undertook a 6 month teaching placement in Port Elizabeth, South Africa at a mixed secondary school in 2012. Here I taught students from ages 12-19 in both English Language & Literature, and Life Orientation.

Since leaving university I have run numerous study technique sessions with students of all ages. In addition, I regularly tutor various students at both A-Level and GCSE in a variety of essay based subjects.

I have also run workshops and seminars at secondary schools, colleges, and universities to teach students how to study more effectively through mastering their mindset.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in study skills and techniques after undergoing a dramatic transformation in how I approached studying myself during my third year of university. After two years of being a low-mid 2i student at Cambridge I changed my entire approach to study through developing a number of study tips/tricks/hacks rooted in the science of Positive Psychology.

Students who often need tutoring are not those lacking in intelligence. For many not reaching their true potential it is their mindset and approach to learning that lets them down.

This is where I come in- I share my story of how in my third year I actually started working fewer hours, stopped getting stressed out, and completely changed my relationship with learning and education.

My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge them to apply these techniques themselves.

Areas I specialise in include:
- Fostering Positive Study Habits
- Eliminating Distractions & Increasing Focus
- Stress Reduction & Redirection
- Mastering Time Management
- Conscious Note Taking
- Perfecting Exam Technique

Personal Description:
I am working as a Research Associate at Imperial College London. I received my PhD in Control Theory from City, University of London in October 2016. I graduated in Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering and I hold a Master Degree in Telecommunications and Networks. Also, I have Teaching Certificate in Academic Practice awarded by Higher Education Academy.

Being at University raises my awareness of stress that students might feel if not doing well in mathematics. Therefore, teaching gives me a great deal of satisfaction to help students to improve their maths knowledge and progress further.

Teaching Experience:

I teach on a wide range of university modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. These include: Engineering Mathematics, Mathematics and Computation, Programming and Design (C, Python), Digital Logic, Digital Signal Processing and Linear & Non-Linear Systems. Since this academic year I am a Widening Participation Tutor working with pupils from as young as Year 5 all the way to Year 13 at schools and colleges around London.

Tutoring Approach:

I always work at a pace that suits each individual student, making the subjects interesting, fun and accessible for students so they will learn more easily and remember more. My lessons are well detailed and prepared to give the student with as much knowledge as possible. I encourage them to practice more and advise them on exam technique and how to achieve better grades.

Personal Description:
Hello to everyone,
I'm a 26 years old Hungarian saxophone player recently moved to London, and looking forward to teach music.

After successfully completing my bachelor in Jazz Saxophone at the Conservatoire of Trento (Italy), I moved to Milan where I have balanced studies and work for almost 2 years. Although I specialise in saxophone and jazz, I am able to teach the recorder, flute, and (classical) music theory.

I started learning music with the Kodaly method at the age of 5 and have been studying, playing and teaching music ever since. As a freelance and private saxophone and flute teacher, I always try to apply that same method when teaching my students.

I have a great experience of performing with various big bands and smaller groups, such as quartet and trio formation in Hungary and Italy as well.

Teaching Experience:

I was teaching in the past three years in Italy, private students and in a music school as well. Most of my students were complete beginners when we met, so I have experience of teaching the basics of music and make the students like what they do.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons cover topics like: tone production, breathing, articulation, music reading, improvisation, music theory (classical and jazz), ear training, repertoir.
I'm teaching saxophone, flute and recorder in a personalized way. I teach what the students are interested in.
In my lessons I use american books such as Jim Grantham JazzMaster Cookbook, Joe Viola books, Jerry Bergonzi, Bob Mintzer and Jim Snidero methods.

Personal Description:
Recently returned to the UK to live near my family after teaching abroad for many years. I have 2 teenagers who no longer need my constant attention. I enjoy speaking other languages and love teaching, especially one to one teaching, where I can focus all my attention on the individual.

Teaching Experience:

1976-1987 EFL teaching in the UK and abroad. 6th form, secondary and adult. Also some ESL and home teaching.

1988- 2008. Primary teaching 3-12 year olds. I am trained in Early Years teaching. For 9 years I was the English Language Support coordinator in a large international school. My responsibilities included assessing children's needs, planning and teaching English as an additional language throughout the Infant and Junior school, improving reading skills and helping train other staff in the above. I have regularly tutored individuals and small groups of children after school.
I have recently completed a course in "Big Writing" with Ros Wilson of Andrell Education, focusing on improving writing skills from KS1 to KS3

2009- present. Nursery teacher and part time Modern languages/ Supply teacher in KS2

Tutoring Approach:

Each person's needs are different and my first job is to develop a trusting relationship so that I can quickly assess the priorities. Building confidence in prior knowledge comes next. It's important to pace the lesson so that there is just enough pressure but no stress. I like to work on all 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) whatever the goal of the class, and to that end use a variety of resources; books, cards, games, music, computer. I am a very good listener and have unlimited patience. I constantly make students aware of the progress they are making which builds confidence and speeds up learning. I set very high but reachable standards.

Personal Description:
I have a life-long love of English in general and of Shakespeare in particular, and have always enjoyed communicating that enthusiasm to other people, helping them to develop understanding, confidence, appreciation and a love of language. I have an MA degree in English from Cambridge University and am an IGCSE examiner for the Cambridge International Examinations Board.

My early background in retail management, several years at director level in international advertising, then thirty years as a teacher, with theatre running as a constant thread throughout my life, all combine to make me a particularly effective communicator.

As well as offering private tuition, I also run school drama workshops, direct plays, and work as a freelance writer/editor and voice-over. I have been involved in over fifty theatrical productions - acting or directing - as well as giving regular readings and public presentations.

Having lived and worked professionally for several years in France, I am fluent in French and can offer coaching in French literature and language.

"Simon is the complete professional, directing and managing large-scale productions, nurturing emerging talent, and running a very successful education programme, as well as being an inspirational teacher himself." (Arnold D. - former colleague)

PLEASE NOTE: I am now largely unavailable until mid-July 2017 but do get in touch in case we can discuss possibilities.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Head of English and Drama at independent schools for over twenty-five years, and am regarded as a charismatic and inspirational teacher. I have many years' experience of Drama in general and Shakespeare in particular on and off stage (studying, teaching, acting and directing).

"Every pupil has selective memories of their teachers. Every past pupil I ever meet selects Simon as their most memorable teacher. They remember his effervescence in the classroom, his delight in their achievements and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Shakespeare." (Tim R. - colleague since 1987)

"Simon was simply a brilliant Head of Department, being that rare combination of high academic and able, articulate communicator. His subject knowledge is unmatched in all my teaching experience, especially of Shakespeare's works, and his inspired teaching produced enthusiastic, successful pupils during his twenty years." (Kay C. - colleague since 1998)

Tutoring Approach:

Need to gain more confidence with spoken or written language? Find Shakespeare hard to cope with, or poetry difficult to understand? Wish to develop your creative writing ability? Need to practise interview technique and improve presentation skills?

I can help. I give coaching in drama, literary analysis and practical criticism, particularly of poetry, and I specialise in teaching Shakespeare. In addition, my earlier background in advertising and marketing is particularly useful in helping students develop their interview technique and presentation skills.

If distance is a problem, I am happy to offer on-line tuition, such as via Skype.

(For adults wishing to learn more about Shakespeare or to understand and appreciate poetic technique, I am happy to undertake small groups - please enquire about special rates.)

"Simon is an inspirational teacher of English Language, Literature and of Drama. His ability to engage and motivate pupils is of the highest order as is his pursuit of excellence in all that he does, both within the classroom situation and in workshops. All of this is well reflected in the results he has achieved, in particular with both academic English and Drama scholarship candidates over his years in post." (Dr Gerry H.)

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Turkish. I've been living in England since 1997 and completed my Computer Science degree in 2006 at Aston University / Birmingham. For my final year project I developed computer program to translate between Turkish and English. The program was build using a dictionary, set of rules listed in a pattern and a logic to extract meaning using the dictionary and the pattern. Turkish is morphologically a complex language. However complexity can be simplified by learning the patterns, and then enjoy making sentences using logic. I find learning a language exciting myself and after my degree started to learn German. Through listening to cd's of Michael Thomas. It was fascinating to see that he was using the same technique to teach couple of his students. During the learning process it was their logic that was being challenged more than their memory of words and phrases. I think it is ok to 'cheat' and look up words that you don't remember. Once you start making sentences using particular words and you are comfortable with the sentence you will also remember the word due to the pattern you have built in your mind. Regardless of our individual learning styles, I think building patterns is a more permanent and easy way of learning than trying to memorise everything.

Teaching Experience:

I ve been giving private tuition in Birmingham, and now I would like to continue this in Bournemouth. I am currently doing a research about effective ways of teaching Turkish. I am interested in teaching Turkish because I enjoy teaching, also the experience will support my project. My ultimate aim is to write and record my own teaching materials for learning Turkish

Tutoring Approach:

I developed my interest in languages through my degree. I am competent in teaching, and I will adopt my technique based on the individual's learning style. Most native English speaking people in the UK finds agglutinative languages difficult to comprehend, as they attempt to 'understand' by comparing them with their own or some other European language. I believe that I can provide techniques that will overcome this difficulty. I enjoy teaching Turkish because I believe that I can understand how different individuals perceive and learn. I find it challenging and rewarding to be able to connect with people, deliver information the way they will appreciate, and see people enjoying the experience of learning.

Personal Description:
Hi! I am Ana, a 23 years old Spanish girl currently looking for job in London.

I have a degree in human nutrition and dietetics, the Proficiency English Cambridge certificates and an 120 hours advance TEFL certificate. This summer I attended a course in the renown University of Nebrija to form people to teach Spanish as a second language and it was fascinating.

I love music, art, health science, English language, meeting people, reading, cycling and travelling.

My mother is a teacher and I have always liked helping my classmates with any doubts they had, so it would be my absolute pleasure to share my knowledge with who ever needs it.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of teaching both small groups and 1:1, including ESL students. Throughout my university career I have taught at undergraduate and postgraduate level and have had pastoral responsibility for students in the department. Since having my own children I have actively engaged in outreach activities to both junior and secondary schools. Recently, prior to becoming a tutor I spent 1 year working with KS2, KS3 and GCSE students

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that in order for my students to achieve their best my role as a tutor is to build confidence, stimulate interest and consolidate knowledge. I recognize the difference in learning styles between individuals and employ a range of teaching approaches to address these, always tailored to the individual student

Personal Description:
I am a very friendly person with a lot of patience, as teaching is profession which needs patience. I just finished my MBA in Banking and Finance from University of Wales.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years of teaching experience, which includes both teaching individuals as well as entire class of around 15 students. One thing that i must mention here is that I have been awarded "best teacher of the year" award for three years in a row. And the best achievement which i consider worth stating is the "World Distinction" which was achieved by one of my excellent student, in GCSE mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in good communication skills and strong experience in the concerned field. I personally prefer to teach one student at a time, so that i can give my complete and uninterrupted attention to that one student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Mathematics teacher since 2001 and have been a Head of Department for Mathematics, a Learning Zone Coordinator for Mathematics and ICT and also a Mathematics Consultant for a local City Council.

I have experience of working with both Primary and Secondary School children but my career as a teacher has been mainly in Secondary Schools.

I have also taught English at lower GCSE level (up to grade C).

Tutoring Approach:

I am very kind, sympathetic and non judgemental in my approach to tutoring and work very hard to make sure that all my students feel confident when working with me - it is vitally important that students do not feel embarrassed when making a mistake as this prevents them from learning.

I fully encourage and help to develop each student's confidence in mathematical discussions which allows them to think through mathematical problems when they are doing school work or taking an examination.

All of my previous GCSE students have achieved A* to C grades.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£40 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
¡Buenas! Me llamo Patricia y... ¡soy la profesora que estás buscando! Understood that? No? Then you really need my classes! :)

I am a bilingual Spanish and English teacher from Madrid, Spain, confident in my ability and passion to teach.
I am a sociable, dynamic, cheerful, self-confident and highly motivated with a responsible commitment to everything I carry out, especially when duties as an educator are concerned. I am a hard-working professional, enthusiastic about teaching but learning at the same time. I believe I am skilled in the design of challenging and innovative activities that address the diverse interests and needs of students. My goal is to motivate them by ascertaining their inner strengths, abilities and the activities that truly inspire them.

With over 7 years teaching experience, I have been teaching successfully English and Spanish at all levels (from 1 year old babies to adults), exams preparations, business classes, etc. My experience has provided me with an excellent background in the field of teaching, which is my passion, and has enabled me with the skills and methodology required to be a great teacher in every sense.

Through teaching, I get to live my passion, I love working with kids, teenagers or adults, regardless of the kind of student, there is no better feeling than to stimulate a person's social, emotional, physical and academic growth. I love the result of my job. Every day I am determined to help people realise how easy and fulfilling learning can be.

So, it doesn't matter whether you are 10 or 50, if you are looking for business Spanish classes, passing an exam, or just learning in order to go to our wonderful beaches and be able to order a paella at a restaurant! Whatever your needs are I will make sure our classes suit them perfectly! :)

Teaching Experience:

With over 8 years teaching experience, I have been teaching successfully English and Spanish at all levels (from 1 year old babies to adults), exams preparations, business classes, etc. My experience has provided me with an excellent background in the field of teaching, which is my passion, and has enabled me with the skills and methodology required to be a great teacher in every sense.

I had the privilege of being Head of the English Department at SLG Institute of Education and International Euro-American University during 5 years, in charge of all the English-related subjects teaching the language to adults at all levels required (on-site and on-line classes).

Regarding private tuition, I started working as a private teacher in Madrid where I developed my own methodology. After being in several schools devoted to pre-school and primary education, I decided to create something of my own by request of my private students who were increasing very fast. Thus, I created my own company of private teachers, that way I could reach more students as the feedback I had already received was extraordinary. It was an amazing experience in which I was responsible for a team of teachers working according to my method and materials (hired after a recruitment and training process led by myself).
As you can tell, when it comes to private classes I know what I am talking about!

I had the pleasure of becoming part of the academic team in Kids & Us, a very special international school meant for children from 1 to 13 years old. Its methodology is rooted firmly in natural language acquisition. Thanks to this great year being immersed in a kids world, I could learn a lot from them, such as techniques used in order to encourage student learning within this method, ways to establish good rapport¦ Always making certain the kids receive sufficient praise and positive reinforcement which fosters confidence for them to reach their full potential.

I began tutoring in the UK at all levels more than three years ago with great success as well as coordinating Spanish teaching in the school I worked for more than two years, here in Birmingham.

During this time I have been able to get to know the National Curriculum and focus on helping lots of students with the preparation for the A Levels and GCSE exams with proven great results.

I have taught Spanish to students of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds, at all levels. I have learned through my experience the main difficulties British students face when learning Spanish as a Second Language. For this reason, I will always make sure my lessons meet each individual`s learning styles and needs.

My teaching method is rooted firmly in the communicative and task-based approach developing your ability to speak, read, write and understand the language regardless of your level. And believe me, all of this can be great fun!

This year I was looking forward to a new challenge, therefore I decided to start a new personal project, I am opening my own Spanish Language Centre in the heart of Birmingham, The Jewellery Quarter. I really hope to see you all, either in the Language Centre or, if it is more convenient for your location, in my house where I also teach. ¡Nos vemos pronto! :)

Personal Description:
I am a professional stage director originally from Vienna/Austria but based in London for more than 3 years now. I direct plays, musicals and operas for various theatre venues throughout the UK and Europe, and I very much enjoy working creatively with other people. I also lead workshops for all ages and work as an acting teacher and directing consultant.

Apart from theatre and the arts, my greatest passions are foreign cultures and languages. I am a native German speaker and I also speak Spanish, basic Italian and Hungarian, and - of course - English.

Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in tutoring German as a foreign language (one-to-one private teaching) and in leading theatre skills and drama workshops for all ages. I worked with the educational department of the State Opera Stuttgart in Germany for two years, where I led workshops for children (6 - 9 years) and young people (14 - 20 years). These workshops are not only tailored for people who want to pursue a career on stage, but also help to build up self-confidence, improve our social skills and help finding ways to express ourselves.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring is tailored to individual needs of each student because we all have our very own approach to learning. We will discuss requirements and objectives at the beginning of our tutoring, and then work in a positive and encouraging atmosphere to achieve this goal. I am very confident with languages and know about the challenges people face when learning a foreign language - but, even more importantly, I also know how to overcome these difficulties.
