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:
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:
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:
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:
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 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.

Subjects

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)

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:
I have a first-class honours degree in History and a master's degree in American Studies (History). During my master's, I specialised in vernacular history, particularly the social, ideological and political significance of post-9/11 Islamic hip-hop.

I am a freelance marketing consultant, with a focus on content and copywriting, working in the tech, property, psychological wellbeing, HR and social development sectors. I am currently away travelling so I can only provide online tuition. I love to read, write, paint and travel.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 8 years' tuition experience, having initially worked as a peer History tutor at Bridgewater State University (USA) in 2008 followed by working as a GCSE English tutor for the Tutor Trust in 2011-12. I have been tutoring privately since 2009.

At the Tutor Trust I delivered small group tuition sessions and taught large group revision classes in Manchester's disadvantaged schools and colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

TUITION
I take a structured approach to tutoring and develop a clear plan with objectives for the student and I to reach together. I work at the student's own pace and provide bespoke tuition which is tailored to the student's needs and learning style. My sessions are clear, engaging and stimulating.

My tutoring style is to facilitate rather than teach. I guide the student in the right direction and provide additional support to help with study skills, time management and organisation skills. Ultimately, I encourage the student to build more confidence in his/her own ability.

PROOFREADING & THESIS SUPPORT
I provide proofreading services for undergraduate and postgraduate coursework. I check grammar and spelling to an excellent standard and offer in-depth feedback on analysis/argument, structure, knowledge/understanding, sources and referencing, and style and presentation to help students to achieve the grade they are aiming for.

Personal Description:
My name is Safowan and I'm currently working as a software tester. Having graduated with a 2.1 honours in Mathematics I want to inspire young learners to achieve and fulfil their aims and ambitions during evenings and weekends. Tutoring has always been rewarding for me and it gives me great pleasure to share my knowledge to benefit others.

Teaching Experience:

My experience in teaching ranges from a placement in a secondary school as part of the student associates scheme (SAS) to private tutoring.

During my time at Royal Docks Community School as a Teaching Assistant, I worked closely with senior teachers in the Mathematics department. My daily responsibilities included; assisting pupils with their learning by working with small groups and on a one to one basis, assisting teachers with any administration tasks, occasionally working with SEN students, helping to ensure pupil disruption is kept to a minimum, having performance reviews from head of department, and ensuring school's policies and procedures are maintained at all times.

I also have three years experience in tutoring a range of students, from ks2 through to gcse. This enabled me to gain experience of lesson planning, marking, exam preparation and identifying weaknesses and addressing them according to the student's ability. Therefore, time management played an important role as I had to prepare for each lesson, taking into consideration any changes that might occur in the lesson, and ensure the student learns a topic with enough practice questions under timed lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching would be to tutor my subject in a fun and friendly environment. Mathematics can be a difficult subject to grasp but can be understood better and enjoyable to learn if taught in a more positive and proactive manner. I prefer to explain the very basics of each topic at first before engaging with the student to try out the practice questions. As the student grows in more confidence, they will learn some exam strategies and techniques to overcome exam pressures.

Personal Description:
I am a full time professional online physics tutor and an excellent physics communicator. I have the ability, understanding and resources to get the best out of students for their GCSEs, A levels and undergraduate degrees. I am a fully qualified, DBS checked, physics teacher with nine years teaching and tuition experience across all ages and abilities. Working as an examiner for the major exam boards in the UK has given me a detailed understanding of examination requirements, I extend this insight to my students, giving them not only the required knowledge for their exams but also the very best exam technique. I have just been awarded a Ph.D. in Physics, this involved producing cutting edge research for future solar technology, this work helps me to inspire my students. I am passionate about my subject and I really enjoy my job as a tutor. So if you, or someone you know, wants to learn physics and get higher grades please get in touch.

I will provide:
Increased students grades (see testimonials)
Friendly, reliable and professional service
Inspiration and encouragement
Supporting homework and problems
Highly efficient and effective environment for learning
Excellent subject knowledge
Increased problem solving skills
Significant improvements to exam technique
An ability to get the best out of students
A level, GCSE and Undergraduate Physics tutorials
A level and GCSE Chemistry and Mathematics tutorials
Help with university entrance exams

Teaching Experience:

I am a professional Physics tutor with nine years teaching and tutoring experience. In 2005 I graduated from Leeds University with a BSc Physics, having achieved the second highest mark in the year.  I received a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education) from Nottingham University in 2007.  After which I completed an NQT followed by two years at the Brunts School in Mansfield, with particular success teaching GCSE and A-level Physics. 

In 2011 I started tutoring part time while studying for a Masters in Nanoscience at Nottingham University. I graduated in 2012 having achieved the highest mark in the history of the course (79.3%), while my tutees have made massive improvements.

I have obtained a PhD in Physics. This involved using X-ray based techniques to analyse molecules and nanostructures on surfaces. The primary goal was to investigate charge transfer between these nanostructures and various surfaces.  Charge transfer is very important for solar cells and organic LEDs and his research leads to fundamental understanding of the physics behind these technologies.  Part of this work involved attending MAX-Lab IV in Lund, Sweden and Soleil in Paris to which involved using a synchrotron, which is an X-ray producing particle accelerator.  I hope that this research will lead to developing new technologies for light flexible displays and low cost solar power generation.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work with the student to quickly find the problems they are having with physics, then rebuild their knowledge or correct their misconceptions, making the relevant physics clear and easy to understand. Challenging questions and assignments will be set to drive, encourage and push a student outside of tutorials. This also helps to carefully assess knowledge and give them a much clearer understanding. Working through problem solving, examination techniques and confidence building exercises, I can improve a students' performance in any exam. Ultimately driving students towards their best while making the learning process fun, enjoyable and inspirational.

How online tutorials work:
Tutorials online are conducted over Skype or FaceTime using Scribbler. This means students can see me and talk to me via a video call. Scribbler is an interactive white board used by both myself and my student, it is web based so only a flash enabled web browser is required (it doesn't work on an iPad). This allows students to work with me on problems, and keep their tutorial notes in one place for revision. I also used a wide range a range of animations and online resources, which are carefully selected to improve understanding.

Whatever you need:
So if you just need help with a few problems, a complete course in physics from scratch, or anything in-between, I can help, please get in touch.

Personal Description:
I lived and worked in France from 1982 to 1985. I have always spent the summer holidays from the age of 12 living with a French family and feel equally at home in France or England. From school age I knew I wanted to travel and find new places learning the language as I went. I love to communicate and enjoy meeting people and getting to know them and want to pass on the enthusiasm I feel for all things French. I enjoy reading, music, films and French food isn't bad either.

Teaching Experience:

My initial teaching experience was with 'Le Club Francais' where I was in charge of a weekly after school club of 5 - 11 year olds. This was great fun as learning was channelled through games.
My friend's son had extra lessons after school to pass his oral French which he did with flying colours and commendation from his teacher.
A teacher from a nearby school wanted to move to France, so asked for help with pronunciation and grammar.
I have also translated a marketing leaflet for a company in Bradford and am the voice at the end of a help line for French speaking residents who wish to move house.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that enjoyment is the motivation for learning. To make sure that a lesson is visually, orally and kinaesthetically appealing to students will ensure maximum attention span and maximise learning and long term memory retention. I have quite an approachable personality and am a good listener, which is important in establishing boundaries (for both learner and teacher) and to iron out any potential problems or misunderstandings that could arise. I have a very flexible approach to tutoring because every student has a unique way of learning and therefore am always open to suggestion to improve my knowledge.
