Personal Description:
I have Special Needs University qualifications and counseling 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.

Free slots available:
- Tuesday: 7.30pm onwards
- Wednesday: 4-5pm, 6-7pm
- Thursday: 5-6pm, 6-7.30pm
- Saturday: 5.30pm onwards

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for the past 14 years preparing students for +11, +13 exams in English and Maths. I also teach Maths up to AS level (C1 and C2).

I am a certified therapist in PhonoGraphix method for addressing spelling and reading difficulties both for children and adults.

I could also help with learning computers (ECDL syllabus including usage of Word, PowerPoint, Internet, Excel).

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:
I am an experienced teacher of languages in Essex, I enjoy sharing my passion for languages with my pupils.

Teaching Experience:

I work in a secondary school in Essex. I teach French and Spanish to KS3 and KS4. During my free time I offer private tuition in French and Spanish but I also offer Arabic tuition. I have experience teaching both top sets and bottom sets so whatever your target I will make sure that you achieve not only your target but that you can exceed it as we'll.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very creative, I endeavour to make my lessons enjoyable and I use a lot interactive games with my students. A language lesson for me has to be engaging rather than just teacher led.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Modern Foreign Languages, EFL and ESOL teacher. I have lived and worked in Germany (for four years in Munich and Augsburg doing aupairing, shop and office work), in Spain (teaching English for four years in Barcelona, Feuerteventura and Sevilla), and England (doing administrative work and teaching, the latter for over 15 years).

I enjoy meeting people of other nationalities and exchanging ideas about different cultures and experiences. In my free time I enjoy taking part in conversation groups in Spanish, German and English, the latter with people of a variety of cultural backgrounds. I also enjoy watching European films and TV programmes both in the languages I know and in ones that I do not. In my quiet time I enjoy reading novels both in English and in Spanish and German. In the future I would like to learn Italian!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as an EFL teacher since 1994 - teaching both abroad and in England to multi-lingual and monolingual classes. In Spain I taught children from 5 years old and businessmen in company, while in England I have taught children from 12 years old at residential summer schools and adults from 17 to 75 years of age in term time. I have also had some experience in teaching both German and Spanish at secondary schools.

I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at an FE college in Nottingham for the last fifteen years. I taught general English with classes in grammar, vocabulary and the four language skills. I also taught Study Skills, Academic English (EAP) and prepared students for IELTS examinations.

I am also experienced in preparing ESOL students for exams from Entry 1 to Level 1 and CAE. In addition, I have taught EAP (Academic English) to pre-sessional students at university.

I am currently teaching two German evening classes a week to adults and doing supply teaching in local secondary schools during the day.

I have given private tuition to adults and children in Spanish, German and EFL. I have also assisted school children with their reading and writing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in student centred, active, task based learning. I am happy to teach one -one classes or couples/small groups (each additional student will be charged a rate of 50% of the hourly rate)

I am happy to teach in my home or travel to the clients house (for which there would be an additional charge to cover travel costs).

Personal Description:
My name is Simon and I am a graduate from the University of Leeds with a strong 1st class degree in Japanese, Russian and Ukrainian languages. I have completed my MA in Japanese cultural studies and now I have recently finished a PhD in Japanese focussing on the international reception of modern Japanese popular culture.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught all three languages, Japanese, Russian and Ukrainian to all levels to various age groups in preparation for exams and or general study for the students own pleasure. I am able to advise on proper essay style for assignments for all levels ranging from primary to university education.

Whilst studying abroad in Japan and Russia as part of my formal studies I taught English as a foreign language in Konan University situated in Kobe, Japan and in Moscow state university in Moscow, thus I am more than prepared and understand the requirements of language learning both from a native speaker level and as a student.

Having lived in both Japan and Russia I am also very aware of, and competent with, colloquial Japanese and Russian language and am prepared to teach both formal language and once a grasp of the language has been achieved I can move onto more colloquial language skills to speak like a true native speaker

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor in a relaxed environment tailored to each individual student's needs and wishes.I will then help the tutee create a work plan, and work through all areas that need attention.

I feel it is important to target the areas in which a student needs and or wishes to improve in so as to boost confidence. Regarding language study, I firmly believe that self confidence is one of the most important aspects to understand so that steps towards fluency can be achieved.

I am friendly, patient and understanding, and appreciate that everyone works at a different pace.

Personal Description:
I am 64 years of age mother of two grown children. My husband teaches at the Metropolitan University. I was born in the German speaking part of Switzerland and so am bi-lingual. I love reading, the theater, films, discussing all sorts of things be they topical, political or pertaining to essays to me done for the German course etc. I have many other things that are of interest to me.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught English to German speaking people but I have taught at South and North Trafford college, at Alderley Edge School for Girls, Wilmslow High and Knutsford High. I have also taught business people when they were either connected to a Swiss, Austrian or German company. I have tutored pupils from Manchester Grammar and also Altrincham Grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

If the pupil is learning German at his or her school I will be gladly guided by what they do with the German teacher and the course they want to go to improve their skills and also by their parents if they have any instructions of their own.
I absolutely love teaching German and working with young people to make the language more interesting and fun

Personal Description:
I received my degree from the University of Birmingham (BSc Environmental Science) in 2013 achieving a 2.1 classification. In 2014-15 I studied MSc Surveying and Land Environmental Management at the University of Exeter (Penryn campus).

I am well organised, efficient and take a friendly approach to tutoring - as well as being hard-working and easy to get along with, I am reliable and prefer my lessons to be enjoyable as well as informative. My passion for cooking, combined with another passion of mine; travel, has enabled me to spend considerable time in numerous countries giving me first hand knowledge of different languages/cultures and business environments. So far I have been fortunate to visit New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Korea, France, Spain, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Finland, Norway, Sweden and I intend to visit many more.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous tutoring experience with both young people (under 18) and international students since 2011. I have been able to help my past two tutees from UKtutors to A's in Geography GCSE and A Level respectively.
I also completed a 4 week internship in a New Zealand grammar school in the summer of August/September 2012, allowing me to gain classroom experience as well as helping out more recently in a primary school in Finland, teaching English.

Meanwhile, I tutor/help out my younger brother who is 18 and studying for his A levels.

I also have my own 'proofreading' enterprise and I have helped foreign students with their conversational English skills since 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an informal approach but also ensure that sessions are structured well and tailored for each individual students' needs so every tutee is able to get the most from the session.

I am perfectly happy to re-arrange or cancel classes if necessary, I just ask to be notified at least 24 hours prior to the intended lesson.

Personal Description:
I'm married with three children, currently in their twenties, and with my wife have gone through the parental anguish of public and college/university exams every year since 2006 and will potentially do so for a few more!

I'm a professionally qualified accountant with an honours mathematics degree and a postgraduate certificate in education. I've had a career working in local government finance, supporting managers in managing their service budgets. I have particular interest in the relevant computer applications (e.g. spreadsheets), financial training and quality issues.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching practice at a Reading school.
Written and presented well-received financial training materials and currently lead a working group on training.
I've supported service managers with often limited numeracy ability to manage multi-million pound budgets.
While only one of my three children has a natural leaning towards scientific subjects, they got A, A* & B at Maths GCSE (fairly light-touch parental support, rather than any specific tutoring).
Tutored maths and Excel since 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

While always mindful of the immediate goal to pass exams and "get the grades", I endeavour to instill real understanding of the subject. While it would be great to hear I've helped turn a C into an A, I'd just as much hear that someone no longer fears or hates maths lessons.

Apart from Maths tutoring I can offer:

Excel Spreadsheet Support:
One-to-one sessions tailored to your needs, to learn new functions, pick up tips and good spreadsheet practice, problem solve on your current spreadsheets or help you build new practical spreadsheets.

Financial management for non-accountants: Are you one of those people given the responsibility to manage a budget at work, but feel you are lacking a bit of confidence and some of the skills to do it properly? Did you leave mathematics behind at school and feel it hasn't quite prepared you for this? I can hopefully help you build confidence in your own abilities and show that a bit of calculator common sense or spreadsheet savvy is not beyond you.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified maths teacher, and a highly experienced tutor. And Ex cambridge graduate, after completing a PCSE in maths, I taught in schools in staffordshire and Oxfordshire before moving to exeter an becoming a full time maths tutor, which I have been for the best part of seventeen years, with great success. My specialism is making that extra difference to grades, changings D into B's and C into A's.

Teaching Experience:

I have PGCE (Cert Maths), from Keele university, and have taught in schools in staffordshire and oxford. My main specialism is though teaching in small classes and tailoring what I teach to what a small group actually needs, and one can be done at the one to one level.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on a threefold approach. Firstly maths tutoring is of course all about listening to the pupil and working out both exactly what they needs to learn, and how one should teach it. Secondly based on my my many years of experience I know what tends to slip in class room teaching and how that slip can effect learning elsewhere, allowing me to tackle problems any problems in maths at the root, and so making the entire process much easier. Finally, I place lot of emphasis on how one reads maths questions and tackles actual problems. As a maths teacher one all too frequently encounters pupils whose maths is fine, and it is their reading of question (which often seem that they are written in a language of their own), that is the issue. I am therefore very experience in showing how the maths one knows relates to the question one is actually asked. The importance of this cannot be over emphasised - the difference between an A and a B grade is a difference in ones ability to read the question and find its meaning - and then how one does it under pressure… I am also (in another life) a storyteller,performer and philosopher , and use a lot of storytelling,funny *memorable facts from the history of maths, as very much part on my teaching practice.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a Biomedical Sciences graduate and am currently studying at Imperial College London for my Masters in Reproductive and Developmental Biology with the hopes of starting my PhD next year.

I live in Hertfordshire but commute, by driving, daily to Hammersmith Hospital to study.

I am the oldest of 3, with my youngest sibling being 11 years.

I am very approachable, enthusiastic with a love for my subject. Ideally I would suit a child in their GCSE's or A Levels who needs support with information which is out of grasp for parents.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring children locally; family and friends.

This summer I worked at a residential for children aged 13 - 17 years.

And, I have run a group on Fridays for children on/off for 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I honestly believe the best way to get across to children is by using analogies and diagrams. With my sister I try always to relate the subject we are going over to something she would understand, whether that may be her favourite band, or clothing, or a sport.

I teach biology and so much of biology is new information, unlike english and maths you aren't building on knowledge so it must be kept interesting.

I also believe that practice papers are the best way to learn. I don't believe that practice makes perfect, I believe perfect practice makes perfection and if you know how to answer a question, how to pick apart the question and know what the examiner is looking for then you are half way there.

Subjects
  • Biology
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm a patient and experienced teacher and enjoy working one to one with pupils. I believe the key is to raise confidence and then learning becomes easier, so I always try to make sessions interesting and varied building on the pupils strengths so they can start to feel able to tackle areas they are less sure of in a supportive environment.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching for 15 years and have worked with all ages. I have taught all subjects and do a lot of Computing which gives me the ability to come up with new and innovative ways to help pupils with their numeracy and literacy. I've been tutoring pupils for English, Maths and EFL for 5 years and have had considerable success in raising pupils confidence and levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I like tutoring as it allows me to tailor the activities precisely to the needs of my pupil. I use lots of games and computer based activities and there is always a lot of variety in the activities in each session - so there's no chance of getting bored! If one approach doesn't work, then we'll try something else - that's the advantage of tutoring.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and friendly teacher and enjoy tutoring for children with special or medical needs during the day and providing extra support for children who need it in the evenings. I have a complete and current DBS certificate and currently work as a tutor on a freelance basis and for Worcestershire County Council.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a Key Stage 2/3 Teacher with Maths Subject Specialism from Homerton College, Cambridge in 2002. I have gained a variety of teaching experience both in mainstream and special needs as well as home tutoring. I worked for 8 years at a school for children with behavioural and emotional difficulties and have experience with ADHD, Autistic Spectrum and Attachment Disorder. I have done a lot of work with children in the Looked After System.
I have been a Grade A Maths SATs Marker since 2004 and enjoy marking the SATs Papers every summer.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed but efficient approach to tutoring and I have enjoyed positive feedback from pupils and parents. I expect my pupils to put their best effort into the sessions to make the most of our time together and I am happy to set homework tasks if required.

Please note that there is an additional £5 charge per session to travel to you.

Personal Description:
From being a science orientated student from my GCSEs to my A-levels, I went on to develop my expertise in biological sciences with a BSc in Genetics, in Queen Mary College, University of London, and then a MSc in Medical Genetics with Immunology. After working in an Immunology laboratory at Imperial College I went on to achieve a PhD in Immunology at The University of Birmingham focussing on Stem Cell Research.

Teaching Experience:

I have run small group teaching classes for undergraduates and postgraduates during my PhD and tutored undergraduates, who all achieved 2:1s or 1st class degrees. I have also privately tutored GCSE maths students and students for maths and science at SATs level.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my career I have taken every opportunity to teach in one to one and small group sessions and I have always been skilled in making complex information accessible to the audience depending on their needs and learning style.

Personal Description:
My name is Amy, I'm currently training to be a Primary School teacher at Durham University having just completed my undergraduate degree in Music at the University of York. I'm originally from Hertfordshire and have recently moved to Durham, I am really enjoying my teacher training so far and hope to get my first teaching post here. My interests include playing the flute and cornet in various music groups at the University as well as drawing and painting.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst at Sixth Form College, I worked for a private tuition company called Kumon, tutoring children aged 4-16 with their maths and English work.
Throughout my undergraduate degree at the University of York, I was actively involved with the Music Education Group and lead music workshops, such as Samba Drumming, Indian Music and General Musicianship in primary schools around York.

I have also completed three York Students in Schools placements (5 days each) in schools in York, observing teaching and gaining experience. In these placements, I often worked one-to-one with children, working to improve their abilities in maths and English. As well as these placements, I spent two weeks at a first school, continuing to expand my knowledge of primary teaching and my experience of working with children.

This most recent summer, I spent three weeks in August working at a Activity Day camp called Barracudas in Cambridge for children aged 4-16 and ran many activities such as trampolining, outdoor sports (including Quidditch!) and art activities. Although the focus of these sessions weren't as educational as those in school, I was still required to ensure that the children were making progress as the organisation could have been subjected to an Ofsted inspection, meaning that I planned my sessions to provide for the best experience for the children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is about getting to know the child so that I understand the best way to help them learn. I know that all children have different approaches to understanding and I think that it is important to provide tutoring that is individual to their needs. I like to engage the child I am teaching, making learning fun and develop the skills that they need to continue to learn.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and very experienced primary school teacher who loves working with children to help them achieve the best they possibly can. I can provide you with a reliable, friendly and flexible service supporting your child with maths, reading, writing, phonics or speaking and listening. I treat each child as an individual and aim to make each tuition session enjoyable and successful, connecting the learning with your child's interests where possible, and always giving plenty of encouragement and praise.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified teacher who has taught locally in primary education for 21 years before more recently starting to home tutor children. I have successfully taught children with a wide range of abilities, children with special educational needs and children learning English as an additional language.

I have also had responsibility for leading the teaching of English across the year groups (speaking and listening, reading, writing and phonics).

Tutoring Approach:

I would come to your home for the tuition sessions, providing a familiar setting for your child's learning on a one to one basis.

Current parents and pupils with whom I work testify to my friendly, high quality professional approach and the difference that I can make. All tuition is specifically tailored to each child to help build their confidence whilst being as creative as possible to help them enjoy their learning. In this way I will also guide your child through the steps needed to improve their understanding and to gain confidence in their knowledge, skills and abilities.

Tutoring is available for children being homeschooled as well as for children requiring a little extra help out of school hours - term time and during school holidays.

Personal Description:
Hello - my name is Dave. I am a qualified Maths Teacher and an experienced A-level Maths Tutor. I specialise in teaching A-level maths and coaching students to attain the top grades at GCSE level. However, I enjoy helping people of all ages and abilities to improve their confidence and understanding of Maths.

I teach Maths at the Redhill Academy, Nottingham, specialising in A-level and GCSE students. I cover all core A-level topics as well as Statistics, Mechanics and Further Pure. I have extensive experience of working with students studying the AQA, Edexcel, OCR and OCR-MEI A-level specifications.

I offer a friendly and effective Maths Tutoring service aimed particularly at A-level maths students and GCSE students who intend to go on to study maths at A-level. In addition I have considerable experience of tutoring adult learners who need help with maths in order to progress their careers.

Tutoring normally takes place at my family home in Gedling, Nottingham.

Lessons usually last 1 hour.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss availability etc.

Thank you.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience of teaching maths at all levels especially A-Level and GCSE. Over 10000 hours tutoring experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I have extensive and carefully planned resources for all the A-level maths topics which I teach. The student works at his/her own pace in order to build the depth of understanding that is essential to achieving the top grades. To a great extent the student is allowed to make his/her own mistakes, we can then tackle misconceptions and help to build confidence. Students are encouraged to ask questions to validate their understanding.

Overall my approach to tutoring is based around developing that depth of understanding and confidence in maths. This is broadly achieved by working closely with the student to build a trusting and supportive working relationship.
