Personal Description:
I trained as an actor at Arts Educational schools and have twenty five years experience working as an actor, director and writer. For ten years I worked as an audio director, directing many of the UK's leading actors in recordings of 150 audio books, poetry collections and drama. As a writer I have seen my plays produced in repertory theatre and by small touring companies and have also written for TV's 'The Bill'. I now work regularly as a corporate role-play actor, often using improvisation. I enjoy the range and variety of my work and believe this brings a greater depth of understanding and knowledge to my teaching. I teach young adults aged 16 and over and adults of any age.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career as an actor-teacher, working for small theatre companies touring schools, often leading drama workshops on educational themes. I was also Assistant Lecturer in Contemporary Theatre at the London branch of Boston University, teaching American young adults. I have been teaching private students since 2003, including business people wishing to improve their communication and presentation skills, poets who wish to perform their work live, and corporate trainers seeking voice coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach at my home or travel locally, providing a safe, relaxed and supportive environment in which students can learn practical skills, build their confidence and discover their true ability. Lessons are tailored to meet the specific learning needs of the student, whether they are learning for fun or professional development. I work through voice and elocution techniques and performance skills for presenting.

Subjects
  • Drama
  • A-Level or Highers (30 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (30 p.h.)
  • Adult/Casual learner (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable musician, songwriter and singer. I have been involved in music for many years in solo, group and large ensemble capacties. Among many music courses I have attended, my training includes a Diploma in Popular Music Performance at the highly commended Tech Music School in London, and a Fist Class Honours degree in Music Technology with Popular Music Performance.
I have been fully CRB checked to work with children.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching since 2001, mainly primary and secondary aged students. This was primarily performance based tutoring at weekend classes including some one to one sessions. I have done this in both Norfolk and London. I have also taught many one to one singing lessons with all ages between 6 and 65.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tailor my tutoring to each individual students needs rather than using set lesson plans. My teaching style is based around enjoying the learning experience. I like to engage with my students on a personal level to the extent where the learning is a bi-product of the session without it feeling like hard work. I have found this to be a very popular technique that keeps students interested in the subject and looking forward to the next class.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have graduated from Bristol University and I am a qualified maths teacher with a PGCE. I know maths can be intimidating, and some students even believe they don't have a maths brain. This simply isn't true. With hard work, and an attentive tutor, my students systematically tackle the subject and acquire the skills they need to succeed. I can also give advanced students an edge over their competitors.

Teaching Experience:

I have 5 years experience of tutoring and teaching maths from primary school, through secondary school entrance exams, up to GCSE.

I am most comfortable when preparing students for their maths GCSE and I have a proven record of success.

I have taught maths in three secondary schools in the UK and one international school in China. In China, I was responsible for designing the maths curriculum for the whole of year 6.

Tutoring Approach:

Simplify the subject by breaking it down into its key parts. Then build it back up into something coherent and strong. Patience, perseverance and the practical application of success.

Personal Description:
I have over 10 year experience working as a Chemistry teacher and I currently work in an Outstanding Sixth Form Grammar School. I am experienced with tutoring A Level and GCSE students and I have an excellent record of examination results. I completed a Science PGCE at Edgehill University in 2005 and graduated from UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology) with a Chemistry BSc (Hons)

I am friendly, confident and approachable person. I have up to date knowledge of the current specifications for AQA and understand the demands that the new linear courses have on the students. I am able to work flexible hours after school or weekends to fit in with your needs and I offer sessions with prepared resources to ensure that your tutoring needs are fulfilled. My lessons are structured to optimise time to the benefit of the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught AQA A level and GCSE Chemistry in secondary schools for over 10 years and am judged as an Outstanding teacher. I have a large bank of resources and experience from this.
I have attended many AQA standardisation meetings and I am confident with the structure and style of examination questions. I receive up to date information regarding the new specification and have recently attended AQA's feedback on AS for A level Chemistry 2016.
There is much more emphasis and demand on assessment of practical skills and working in a school which has passed the inspection by AQA for the practical endorsement as well as attending an AQA course that focused on the required practicals and their assessment provides me with up to date knowledge that only a teacher can have.
I have been tutoring students for the last 5 years and have been able to help many students to improve their confidence and achieve their target grade allowing them to gain their place at university. I would be happy to provide any references if required from the parents of these students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed, friendly approach to tutoring and use a variety of resources to help aid memory of difficult concepts. I use a lot of exam questions to practice exam technique and build confidence.
I enjoy adapting my teaching style to meet individual student needs and I am always willing to make new resources and revision aids to support my students.
I will bring copies of all resources free of charge.
I charge 35 per hour for home visits or 30 if you travel to me.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience include working in a grammar school as well as working in a private school.

Currently I am working in a Primary school and specialise in private tutoring coaching students for their exams (GCSE and A Level). I have had excellent results and can provide testimonials from past students.

I have plenty of experience of teaching groups of students as well as individuals. I am able to offer One to One tuition as this is a very good way to learn languages at a fast pace.

Tutoring Approach:

Personally, I enjoy teaching and I always ensure that students enjoy the learning experience. I can offer general conversation and encourage students to speak in French and Spanish. I am offering top quality one to one French and Spanish tutoring at times convenient to the pupil.

Tailored to your needs, the classes are the most efficient and cost effective solution designed for:

Personal Description:
I love history! I have been 'doing' history since I was 14, and it is something that encapsulates me into a whole different world. I have worked as a history teacher at a secondary school for 10 years, and have loved delving back into the past with the older and younger students alike. I studied and worked in archaeology before becoming a history teacher, and found working with real objects from the past was an amazing experience.

At home, I am mum to a 6 year old daughter, and 4 year old son, a cat and a dog. We keep ourselves busy being outdoors as much as possible and are totally hooked on camping! We enjoy the freedom it allows and

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History at KS3, GCSE, AS and A-Level for 10 years. For four of those ten years I was Head of Department, responsible for issues such as curriculum, exams and monitoring student progress, so I am experienced in identifying areas of need for students and helping them to progress. I have been very successful with exam results, and have enjoyed guiding tutee's through their exam subjects.
I have taught AQA in the main, but have knowledge of OCR and Edexcel. I am also part of the teams of markers for AQA at GCSE, and am a moderator for the Unit 4 coursework with Edexcel. I have knowledge and understanding what exam boards are looking for in response to exam questions and coursework objectives.

I am also working as teaching GCSE English and Functional Skills in English to adults, which I enjoy.

I have been tutoring since Dec 2011, and really enjoy the change from class teaching. I have tutored a wide range of students with a wide range of needs, and have taught to all the exam boards. It is really rewarding to set up individual lessons and focus on exactly what is needed, knowing I can offer help and support to students. I like to be well prepared for individual lessons and to make the most of the time we have to improve techniques, subject knowledge and overall exam grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that what really helps students to progress is an understanding of exam technique. Having knowledge of the subject is important, but knowing how to handle it and use it in an exam situation if key to gaining top grades. I like to adopt a friendly and approachable manner with students to encourage focus and progress. I will go through essays and exam questions to identify areas that could be improved, and suggest ways of improving the use of language to make the most of student's knowledge. Giving feedback for written work is imperative to aid progress and this will take a large role in my tutoring.

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:
Stafford resident currently working in a Midlands sixth-form college providing language training to 16-19 year-olds. Professional, a good listener and able to get the best out of my students. I have excellent results from my current students and wish to harness my knowledge again into the field of private tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages for over twenty years to students of wide ranging levels (Beginners to A2 Level). A lot of my recent work has been with sixth-form students across the region but prior to that I worked with adults at many establishments on a more group basis. Equally, I have vast experience of working within businesses, providing language tuition at all levels. My teaching has been diverse and very interesting and I always relish a new challenge.

Tutoring Approach:

A tutor has to be able to focus on the individual needs of the student and make a learning session both varied and interesting. He or she must keep up-to-date with modern learning methods and changes in the curriculum. I am able to tailor my sessions according to the particular needs of the individual and be flexible at any time.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified, excellent and enthusiastic primary school teacher. I have a great deal of experience working one to one as a private tutor as well as my vast classroom experience. I have taught in both state schools and the private sector.

Teaching Experience:

I have 6 years experience teaching Year 1 as well as experience supply teaching across both key stages 1 and 2. I have tutored privately for years and worked with children from Year 1 right up to 11+ preparation. I am passionate about what I do and achieve excellent results.

Tutoring Approach:

I have tutored many children on a one to one basis, subjects ranging from Maths, Writing, Reading and also Recorder lessons. The most important part of tutoring is understanding the child's specific learning needs. I tailor every session to suit the child and to follow his/ her progress. As a primary teacher, I pride myself on being extremely patient and on making learning fun. There is nothing to be gained from tutoring a child who wishes they weren't there. Once a rapport has been built between myself and the child, progress flies. Enjoyment is key.

Personal Description:
Hi my name's Connor,

I am a 3rd year student at King's College London, currently studying medicine. I am also the medical representative for my year and achieved academic achievements for my medical studies in my first two years of study.
In recent years I completed my own AS Levels & A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics & Economics at The Campion School.

Particular expertise in AQA A Level Biology

I can also offer help in areas, such as:

Teaching Experience:

Work experience in primary schools and as an ambassador for King's College London have also provided me with a great wealth of experience with those of younger years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the key to success in school is building confidence in your given subject. I can work with you to build on existing skills or develop the basics needed to achieve. No matter what level you are currently at, you can always improve and aim higher. With understanding, patience and hard work you will succeed.

I allow the student to lead the sessions in the direction they feel they need to focus on, with a combination of revision materials, text book focus and multiple past papers.

Within my current class of 28 children I have 10 EAL children inc 3 non speakers , 3 SEN and 3 MAT. These children come from all walks of life and I have been effectively educating children like this for over 10 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a positive approach to life and to tutoring. I am well aware that some children will be reluctant to receive additional help and some children will absolutely relish it! The approach your child receives will depend entirely on their reaction to me tutoring them. Everyone is different and once the relationship between myself- the tutor and your child- the student is established then we can have a productive learning experience each session.
I am able to provide a varied approach- hands on work, mental work, written work depending on what the student requires.
I am very familiar with the end of key stage requirements and will be able to cater lessons to ensure we achieve a realistic outcome and see genuine improvements within the subject area being taught.
I will aim to make the sessions enjoyable as that's the best way to learn and I will be more than happy to offer any additional guidance you as a parent may need in helping your child even more.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD-qualified biologist and mathematician and a specialist science/maths coach.

I offer one-to-one coaching in:
* Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science to GCSE
* Biology and Mathematics to AS and A2
* professional numeracy for adult learners
* Undergraduate support and report writing
* Preparation for skills tests such as QTS, BMAT and drug calculations for NHS and NMPs.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring part-time for a number of years, with my 10+ years as a research scientist giving me a unique perspective on science and mathematics (and the overlap between them).

Tutoring Approach:

I simply aim to build confidence while covering topics in as much detail as required.

I really enjoy helping students of all ages to understand tricky concepts, and coaching those sitting exams towards the highest grades possible.

I am also a published, award-winning science writer, with a wealth of experience in science communication and editing undergraduate and postgraduate essays and reports.

I tutor from my home in Woolton village, and have a full CRB check available to view on request. I normally visit new students/families for an initial meeting lasting about half an hour.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.

Personal Description:
I am an 18 year old Photography student at Bath Spa University. I did my IB Diploma in Bremen, Germany and lived the last 10 years in Germany as well giving me fluent german as well as English. I am a very open person, who is always willing to help and will have the patience when students just can't get there heads around a topic.

Teaching Experience:

I taught a few children back at my school in Germany, just as a favour when they different quite understand something which I had already done in previous years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very open, I do however pressure students to a degree to get them to believe in themselves and to not give up as if they can't bring up the willpower to understand something it will make their lives even harder when it comes to doing the actual work. However if students try their very best and don't give up, I don't see why one shouldn't spend as long as necessary to get a certain concept understood.

Personal Description:
I am 20 years old, I'm a native speaker of french. I moved over to France at the slender age of 12 and I lived there for 7 years, I have taken my french equivalent GCSE's and A-level's in France. I am currently working as a teaching assistant in a high school for Key Stage 3/4 and I provide extra french curriculum activities for the student's depending on their abilities and their age. I'm also currently at Open University getting my French degree.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working at a High School in Dewsbury as a Teaching Assistant with Key Stage 3 and Key stage 4 student's. Once a week I have French activities put in place after school for those who want help with their french homework or have course work or would like to improve on their French.

Tutoring Approach:

I know myself how hard it is to learn another language, so depending on their age and abilities, I will provide a different range of fun activities/lessons that will help them to progress in French. I always try to keep the lessons/activities as fun and enjoyable as possible so that they are learning whilst having fun but also they are staying concentrated and engaged.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
