Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic mathematician with an ability to communicate well. I have a first class degree in Maths and Chemistry. I would like to help students by either guiding and supporting them in their exam preparation or by developing their confidence and increasing their skillbase in maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a large comprehensive school in Leeds teaching 11-18yrs for the past seven years. I have experience of taking students through SATs, GCSEs, and A-Levels both in school and in private tuition with excellent results. In addition to this, I am an examiner for AQA and Edexcel exam boards, marking Alevel papers. As such, I am very well qualified to help students develop a more effective exam technique that maximises their marks.

Tutoring Approach:

I give one hour or two hour lessons which can either be in support of, and running along side, the student's school work or individually tailored lessons covering specific areas of weakness which students find particularly helpful in preparation for exams.

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 a tutor of both Chinese Mandarin and Cantonese. I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and focused professional with exceptional organisational skills. I am from China, but have lived in England for 11 years. I am fluent in English and have English language qualifications.

I worked for Barclays in UK for six year but I much prefer teaching. I find it very rewarding when I see my students learn and grow with my help. This is why I now work full-time as a private tutor.

I am currently teaching several students. They give me great feedback and are very satisfied with the service I offer.

I have worked as an interpreter and translator. I have a UK masters degree in International Business Communication. While working at Barclays I worked in Correspondence and often interpreted

Teaching Experience:

I have taught both grown-ups and kids, one-to-one and in a group.

If you are going to or doing business with Chinese:
I have experience of teaching groups of senior business people in the office. I have been giving great feedback. For example, "I have gained lots of confidence to speak Chinese when I travel to China for business. Liwen is a really encouraging tutor and I have made great progress in a short space of time."

I also have one-to-one lessons with students who are doing business with Chinese or travelling to China frequently.

If you are planning to travel to China for a holiday:
Few of my students learned Chinese before they went to China for holiday. They were very satisfied after my lessons. "Liwen is professional, organised, and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who would like to learn or improve their Chinese. "

If you are parents and wanted your children to learn Chinese:
I have students between 3-7 years old. They really enjoy my lessons. As a mum myself, I understand the need of children.
I am also teaching in the secondary school. There are many enthusiastic students in the class.

More:
I have both Cantonese and Mandarin adult students.

I am very warm, patient, understanding and a great listener.

I have invested in my teaching materials and have some great stuff to help you learn.

I am flexible and can offer lessons on subject matters of interest to the student.

I have taught students who have very different reasons for wanting to learn Mandarin or Cantonese. Some because they have Chinese relations, some because they have a general interest in China. In all cases I have been able to meet my student's needs and they have been very satisfied with what my lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think everyone has different learning styles. My aim is to understand the different needs of my students and provide the best teaching methods for them, so they will get the most from my lessons. As I have been in England for over 11 years, I have a deep understanding of the cultural differences between west and east.

I like to share my own personal experiences with my students in order to illuminate a subject.

I make lessons enjoyable and have designed some games and exercises.

I am very passionate about teaching Chinese and love to see my students progress.

Personal Description:
I am 60 years old, originally from a business and finance background, and retrained as a teacher from 2008/9, completing a PGCE. I am QTLS qualified and a member of the Tutors' Association which promotes professional standards in the tutoring industry.
I operate as a freelance/private tutor specialising in mathematics and have experience in teaching all ages from primary up to GCSE. I also have several years' experience teaching basic numeracy and literacy to adults.

Teaching Experience:

From 2007-2009 I worked as a volunteer/trainee teacher for a further education college and from 2009-2012 was employed as a basic skills tutor travelling throughout East Anglia teaching adult numeracy and literacy in the workplace. Since January 2012 I have worked as a private tutor teaching mathematics to 5 - 16 year olds whilst continuing to work as a part-time Functional Skills and GCSE mathematics tutor for a local college.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that all teaching should be learner-centred so learning is enjoyable and effective. Teaching should be individually tailored to each learner, whose needs should always come first.I aim to help learners overcome their fear of maths and build up confidence by patience and quiet encouragement.

Personal Description:
I am now retired from teaching but have continued to tutor since. I am confident in my ability as a tutor encouraging students to achieve their best.

I will tutor up to 3 students at the same time at a reduced charge per student providing they are taking the same examination.

Beyond 12 miles I will need to charge an additional 5.

Teaching Experience:

I have been in education for 33 years teaching mathematics and computing for many of these years as well as being IT manager at a school in recent years.

I have a very good knowledge of Entrance examination requirements.

I have also tutored on one to one basis successfully for several years in the past and tutored successful many students to success in past 4 years. I often get repeat business where I have taught GCSE and been retained for A-level teaching or taught their brother or sister as well. All A-level students I have taught have successfully obtained their place at University.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always enjoyed teaching Mathematics and find that with most students it is a lack of confidence and belief that they can do the subject. I therefore work on building confidence by covering basics and making sure students have a good grounding in these before proceeding to harder topics and the examination level questions.


I will always give feedback on how we are proceeding and advise on the progress I feel student is making when ever required. If a student is not making progress or struggling or doesn't seem happy with the lessons I will advise on this. I want to see the students and parents happy with what I am doing for them and getting value for money but I will be honest if I think we are not making progress.

Personal Description:
Teaching is part of my life, which I really enjoy!

My teaching career started in 1985 in So Paulo city, and after some years I received a new challenge in a beautiful coastal location. Two schools invited me to teach and I accepted.

Teaching Experience:

Then I had opportunity to improve my career, teaching different subjects like ICT, Statistic, Accounts and Portuguese. Also I helped other teachers to develop ways to improve their classes using modern technology, bringing a new face to the lessons.

A further challenge arrived in my life in 2011 and made me move once again and now I am living in the UK, and I wish to continue my teaching to help you to learn Brazilian or European Portuguese.

No matter what your goals are, travel, business, educational proposal or simply to learn a language, we can work together to achieve them. I have my own material for all levels, ages and needs.

Tutoring Approach:

In a very dynamic class, we talk about music, art, nature, hints & tips that I believe help to build your confident. In a balanced mix of conversation, grammar, exercise, video and books, you will achieve your target in Portuguese Language.

Tuition can be Face2Face or online via Skype, Google Hangout

Personal Description:
I am currently reading a MA in Piano Performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Prof. Carole Presland. Prior to my studies at the university I did my A-levels at Sdra Latins Gymnasium in Stockholm, specializing in music, graduating with the highest mark. Apart from performing solo and with ensemble, I enjoy teaching and have had many piano pupils over the past few years.

Teaching Experience:

During the past few years I have had students on different levels, ranging from complete beginners to quite advanced. What I find most inspiring and rewarding is when the student shows will and engagement in the playing of the piano.

Tutoring Approach:

In my lessons, I strive to achieve a productive yet joyful atmosphere and try to adjust the lessons to every student, so that they get the best out of the coaching sessions. In order to have a clear structure during the lessons, I highly recommend the use of tutor books, mostly written by professors at diverse musical institutions. Naturally my aim is to help my students reach their set goals for their piano playing, regardless of the desired level of proficiency. I teach pupils on every level, believing that it is crucial to establish a correct foundation early on, in order to be able to progress much more in the long run. For those interested in obtaining the ABRSM diplomas in Piano and/or Music Theory, I am qualified to teach them and have taken the examinations myself.

Personal Description:
Being 18 year old and just finished my A level, I want to pass on the passion as well as the tricks to ace calculating (which you will definitely find useful, having to use your thumb to press the calculator thus slowing down with things will not really help you after all)

Teaching Experience:

I have only taught 3~9 graders, but I think I may as well try approaching GCSE and A level students as well, as a teacher as well as a friend :'>

Tutoring Approach:

Definition and Problem are two factors that cover a lot of what we will be doing. However, I will tear the proposed problems down and we can have a deeper look into what those two were (unexpectedly) obscuring.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of German and fluent in English and French. I moved to Cambridge in 2014. I enjoy sport, travelling and cooking.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and highly motivated language teacher from Switzerland. Before moving to Cambridge 3 years ago, I spent more than 13 years teaching secondary school level modern foreign languages in Switzerland, specialising in English, German and French and preparing the pupils for further and higher education. I have tutored students here in Cambridge up to A Level standard, teach at the Deutsche Samstagsschule on Saturday mornings (GCSE level) and also teach adult education classes.
I am keen to share my passion for languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I always look for the most appropriate teaching method to keep my students stimulated and motivated. I use songs, games, visualisations and multimedia to help simplify complex issues, often create my own supplementary course material and regularly revise topics to consolidate learning. Teaching English, German and French as foreign languages has enabled me to appreciate the challenges students face understanding the different grammar structures.

Report: My son is finding Jon`s lessons really useful. He explains things clearly, is extremely knowledgeable in his subject and is friendly. My son feels at ease with Jon. He is most accommodating when arranging tuition. A good choice of tutor and I would certainly recommend him.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring A level Physics
During my research I worked as a Private A level tutor for the children of a number of overseas Professors - teaching A level Physics and (through one of those students) was invited to teach Physics to A level students at a Ladies Grammar school in Manchester when their teacher became ill. I also taught A level Physics at the Trafford Park College of Further Education in Stretford, Manchester for 2 years

Tutoring Approach:

One to One - focussing on parts of the curriculum where the student is having difficulty in understanding
Create a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. The student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves. One-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students' personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject.

Depending on the student's needs and learning style I encourage students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don't lecture to students or ask them to memorise things. Nor do I do the students' homework for them!

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:
Hi, my name is Pri and I'm a qualified teacher with a degree in Mathematics. I've been rated 'outstanding' in my last teaching reports and was awarded a teacher training scholarship by the IMA. I also write GCSE Maths mark schemes for Create-A-Test (Technology in Education Ltd).

Teaching Experience:

My last placement was at a school in Lewisham where my mentor twice rated me an 'outstanding' teacher (i.e. OfSTED level 1). I taught Key Stages 3 and 4 as well as A-level. Prior to this I taught in Hertfordshire where I also led STEM workshops for Mathematics.

I previously worked as a full-time tutor in Cardiff, where I a large number of pupils between A-level and primary school age.

Tutoring Approach:

For long term tuition, I focus more on conceptual understanding rather than just procedural. In other words, pupils should be able to explain how to solve problems and why they use certain methods, rather than just doing it. This higher-level understanding has shown to be beneficial as pupils are able to apply their knowledge to solve a wider range of problems than they otherwise would.

Initially, we will seek to identify target topics where the tutee would most benefit from additional help. I will then create a tutoring plan which outlines the order in which we will cover key curriculum areas. I set regular homework to consolidate knowledge.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a 23 year old final year student of French and German at the University of Hull who is very passionate about languages and also studied English Language up until A Level. I am happy to travel to my students for tuition so the student can learn in the comfort of their own home. I lived in both France and Germany last year for a semester each and would be happy to help out with any language struggles, as I understand first hand how daunting learning and speaking a language can be and I aim to help my students feel as comfortable as possible.

Teaching Experience:

I have work experience teaching voluntarily at a Primary school from my home town in Bedford, along with studying language in pre schools and nurserys as part of my A Level English Language course. I am aspiring to become a teacher when I graduate next year.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to get my students talking while making them feel at ease and as comfortable as possible. Languages can be very daunting, and I want to instill some confidence in my students along with aiding in any grammatical errors and helping to build vocabulary for my students. I have a large range of resources, such as textbooks with grammar exercises up to A Level qualification and beyond, and will be very happy to help out in any areas where students are struggling.

I feel that I have a good approach with younger students due to being young myself and helping my sister and siblings of friends throughout my school life with their language struggles. I am a friendly and approachable person who wants to make lessons fun and educational rather than a chore, and I feel like this will massively help students retain information easier and motivate them further in their studies from personal experience.

I am not perfect and am not aiming for perfection, I am enthusiastic and engaging and am willing to adapt my teaching skills from student to student. Some students prefer working from a textbook with worksheets, and some prefer a more vocal approach to language learning and I am very aware of how to adapt from student to student.
