Personal Description:
I'm a 46-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

Personal Description:
I have been told that I am a passionate, encouraging and dedicated tutor.

"Edward helped both me and my daughter with Maths tuition this year, for GCSE higher level and IGCSE respectively. We both made excellent progress and grew in confidence with help and encouragement from Ed, who combines an easygoing manner with an extremely serious and professional approach to teaching his subject. Ed is able to get right to the heart of a student's confusion very quickly and to give clear and well-illustrated explanations. I couldn't recommend Ed more highly."

Teaching Experience:

I hold a 1st Class degree (Bsc) in Mathematics from Durham University and have been tutoring full-time since September 08.

I mainly tutor GCSE and A-level Physics and Maths (including further maths) but do have experience tutoring at other levels.

I have taught GCSE mathematics in a local private school and continue to hold 1st and 2nd year tutorials at Sussex University.

I usually hold tutorials at my home in Brighton (please see contact details) but do occasionally travel to the student's house.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are informal but focused.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying Mathematics at Aberdeen University, and looking to make a little bit of extra money to help support my studies. I am very enthusiastic about maths and physics, something which I try to pass on to my tutees. I am looking to tutor standard grade, higher and advanced higher maths and physics and also advanced higher applied maths (mechanics) which is not listed on the site. I would also be willing to teach the English equivalents: GCSE, AS, and A level maths, further maths and physics, should anyone be interested. I am willing to travel or to tutor from my own flat (Old Aberdeen, near the University), whichever is more convenient for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2008. Although I could not list it on this site I would also be very interested in tutoring advanced higher mechanics. This is a subject which I actually taught myself in sixth year because my school was unable to provide the course. Having taught myself from a textbook I achieved an A grade in the exam. The skills I gained from this include the ability to set appropriate work, to decide which areas of the course need emphasis for the exam, and the ability to summarise the key outcomes from each topic.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to carefully go over what has been covered in class in order to find any areas of difficulty and then to spend time working through these areas and to build understanding and confidence to the point where the tutee can answer questions on the topic with ease. Moving through the coursework in this way ensures no gaps in course knowledge. In the lead up to exams and tests most of the time would be spent on revision and past papers, stopping to go over again any uncertainties. I would usually obtain from SQA the course specifications which detail each learning outcome, that is, what the student is expected to know. This gives me the ability to check through, systematically, every area which the tutee could possibly be tested on and thus ensuring that the tutee is fully prepared for the exams.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in Journalism and English and a Certificate in Education. I am able to tutor GCSE English Language GCSE English Literature, GCSE Maths, ESOL English Literature, GCSE Geography, GCSE Psychology and Media Studies to A level. I have given tuition to individuals and small groups of students at undergraduate level and offer friendly, relaxed lessons individually, or in groups up to five people, tailored exactly to what the pupil requires

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of one to one tutoring with both school and college students and adults, plus larger group teaching. I have been doing private tuition in my own home for four years now and its better for students to come to me as its a pressure free environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to teach from my home:
My home is quiet and fairly minimalistic. Lessons are held in my offce and I have a computer and Ipad that students can use.

I use the first meeting to talk about any difficulties in learning the subject in a formal educational setting and discuss any specific learning difficulties you may have. We can chat about strategies to help you learn more effectively and I will work with you at a pace that suits you. I will also ask the student to complete a learning styles questionnaire.


To the best of my ability I try to make subjects interesting to young people and re-engage them. I also encourage students to bring along any work they may be struggling with so I can go through it with them. I can help you get to where you need to be. Please only contact me and purchase my details if you are genuinely interested in my services. No time wasters please. Please note if you require me to travel to you there will be a charge.

Personal Description:
I am a final year PhD researcher in Cambridge University, studying Biotechnology. My academic qualifications include:

- MSc Biochemical Engineering, University College London (2012)

- BSc Medical Biochemistry, King's College London (2011)

- International Baccalaureate (36), Bexley Grammar School (2008)
Maths (HL): 6
Biology (HL): 6
Chemistry (HL): 6

- GCSE (12 A* + A), Bexley Grammar School (2006)

What sets me apart from other tutors?

1) I have tutored a large number of students on a one-to-one basis for over 5 years, and they all went on to achieve their desired grades.
2) I am quite flexible in when I can offer lessons.
3) I am very flexible in what I teach, as I can cover all Sciences and Maths, so you don't need to find 2 or 3 different tutors!
4) I am quite young, which helps me see the problem from the student's perspective, since it wasn't that long ago when I was in their position.
5) I am able to tutor at GCSE level, A-Level or International Baccalaureate.

Since secondary school, Maths and the Sciences have always been my strengths, and I am lucky to have been able to apply both areas in my past and present degrees.
Besides English, I can speak Cantonese Chinese fluently, and a little bit of Mandarin Chinese.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past 5 years, I have tutored a variety of pupils, and every time the grades they end up obtaining have met or exceeded their targets.
Overall I have accumulated over 2000 hours of personal tuition.

I have experience with the Edexcel, OCR and AQA exam boards and can provide my students with relevant study materials.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide a friendly and informal environment. I usually let the student control the pace of the lesson by asking them to interrupt me if we arrive at a topic they find difficult.

Every student is different and my teaching style is adapted to their individual needs once we have identified their weaknesses.
I believe understanding is the best approach to learning and teaching. There's no point in just memorising things if you don't understand where they came from. I explain things in such a way that it is easy to understand, and I am very patient.

If the student has learnt something in school they didn't quite understand, I can go over the topic again with them during our lesson.
If the student understood everything in school, I can teach them new topics to prepare them for when they learn that topic in school.
Lastly, near exam times, I can offer intense exam revision and exam paper practice.

Below is a selection of feedback I have received on another tuition agency website.

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.

TESTIMONIALS

"Over the past 3 years, I`ve had Italian lessons with a number of Italian teachers. Craig has by far been the most effective. He was quickly able to identify specific approaches to learning that would work for me and most importantly, keep me enthused! I am impressed by his preparation he doesn`t just bring the same text book to each lesson and set gap-filling exercises like previous teachers I`ve had - each lesson is carefully tailored to the subject in a way that makes the lesson interactive and memorable. Although I may know what the agenda for the lesson is, how he chooses to run the lesson is always a surprise. One subject leads on to the next as I progress but within each new topic, he skilfully and patiently recaps over previous topics to make sure I don`t forget what we`ve already touched on, which I really appreciate. Homework is set each week and because he makes it interesting, I look forward to the challenge of completing it. My ability to discuss, negotiate, tell stories fluently in Italian has really come on since working with Craig and my grasp of Italian grammar continues to improve thanks to his clear and concise explanations." Su, Walderslade

"Craig has been teaching me Spanish for nearly a year. One-on-one home tutoring enables me to fit lessons around my busy work and family life.
As a mature student I really appreciate Craig`s structured approach to language teaching tailored to my own specific learning pace" Neil, Lordswood

"I have been furthering my French with Craig for some time. He is very encouraging and likes to push you out of your comfort zone at times - which is a good thing as it gives confidence. Craig always makes learning fun and we can be discussing anything from the state of the country to man-eating spiders! He uses a variety of media and tailors lessons to your own requirements/needs or if there is something in particular you have a problem with he finds a way to explain it clearly." - Sharon, Chatham

"Craig is very professional, patient and understanding, I am an absolute beginner in French and after a couple of weeks of tutoring by Craig, I feel confident enough to ask in French some basic questions. Very big plus for me" Jacqueline, Walderslade

"Craig is friendly , helpful and moves you along at your pace" Martin & Lynda, Hempstead

Teaching Experience:

Experience teaching all ages, both in a school environment and one-to-one private tuition and with years of tutoring experience.

We can cater for beginner level right through to experienced speakers who want to brush up on their skills.

Tutoring Approach:

We teach using a variety of materials depending on level, such as class and activity books, grammar and vocabulary books, videos, Internet and printed exercises.
We do our best to tailor lessons to our student's needs. Most of our students are learning a language for a specific reason, such as for holidays or for exams. We design our lessons according to the reason and aim for learning.
We are happy to receive feedback from our students after each lesson and take into account any ideas for following lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a native French speaker, born and educated in Paris, but I have been living in England for over 30 years and married an Englishman. I graduated from the Sorbonne University with a view to teaching English there but when I came to England as a French assistante. A year later, having completed my Master's degree I cam back to settle in England and soon qualified as a French teacher. I have been working in that capacity until 2012 when I retired from full-time teaching to dedicated myself to private tuition. I am thus very experienced at all levels consider myself an extremely dedicated teacher, eager to see the students progress and enjoy learning about French culture at the same time as they improve their command of the language. I believe that the most efficient way of learning other than total immersion is the one to one approach which has often allowed me to enable the students willing to invest the extra time to progress exponentially, get motivated and achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught French and English to adults (managerial staff and trainees) in the private sector, in small groups and individually.
Subsequently, I have taught French from KS3 to KS5, full-time on permanent contracts for nearly 30 years in total. At the same time I have tutored my own son to passing his French G.C.S.E. with the top mark in the country, and his French A Level with flying colours. As a result he is now reading French at Oxford University and he continues to call on my expertise whenever needed. A few years ago, one of my A Level students whom I tutored privately obtained the top marks in the country in every module of the Edexcel exam. I am extremely experienced in coaching students to success in their G.C.S.E. and A Level French exams and the overwhelming majority of my students systematically achieved their potential or better. For over 10 years I took on virtually all the A Level French teaching at my last school and have always acted as teacher-examiner for both G.C.S.E. and A Level..

Tutoring Approach:

First, I assess what each student is aiming to gain from the private tuition, whether it be coaching for written and/or oral examinations, building confidence in communicating within a given context, improving pronunciation,mastering the finer points of grammar, studying French literature etc. I also quickly evaluate the level and ability of individual student through gentle probing and questioning. I go on to prepare an appropriate programme of study and gather material such as PowerPoint presentations, tailor made practice exercises, Past Papers, relevant websites, use visual and aural aids to add interest. I set homework and can give feedback on line between lessons to maximise efficiency of personal contact time. Basically it all depends on what the student wishes to achieve.Because I know the subject so well I can be extremely flexible and can instantly fine tune my approach according to the need of my student at any given moment. Thanks to my long experience I have become extremely responsive to the all-important feedback

Personal Description:
***CURRENTLY LIVING IN GERMANY & AVAILABLE FOR ENGLISH CHECKING (BY E-MAIL) ONLY****

I am a professional in my 30s with degrees in English & Italian Literature (BA 2:1, Warwick 2000) and the History of Medicine & Science (MA Merit, Birkbeck College, University of London). I also hold a CELTA qualification in teaching English Language to adults.

Following my masters degree I studied acting at Rose Bruford College and have performed at fringe venues in London and Belfast though tend now to concentrate on writing for the stage. My book of dramatic monologues, "Untold Lives" was published last year and is now available on Amazon. My first novel, "And I Shall Be Healed" was published by Quickbeam Press in January 2014,

Proof-editing: contact for rates.

In addition to teaching I also offer a proof-reading service so for university essays / research proposals / writing projects, please do contact me for rates.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently living and working as a CELTA qualified EFL teacher in Bonn, Germany. In addition I have 9 years private tutoring experience. Much of this was tutoring GCSE students in English Literature with some history and A'Level students.

In addition to this I hold a CELTA qualificatin and have taught English language at summer schools in Italy.

I hold a CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to proof-editing / English checking is to look primarily at the language. For some clients - university students in particular - it is not appropriate to offer an editorial service as this goes against the rules of university submissions. However, where I think a mistake has been made or something is not clearly expressed - and it is not a simple matter of correcting the language - then I will flag it up to the student so they can look at it again.

My main aim with students is to build their confidence and enthusiasm for the subject. To this end I concentrate on teaching the skills they require to achieve the grades they want. My role is not to replace the teaching they get at school but to compliment it so a tutoring session could concentrate on planning an essay the student has been asked to write or going through specific areas the student needs help with. I won't necessarily give homework - unless required - as I feel students have enough to do without me adding to their workload.

In return I expect my students to engage with the sessions. They don't have to like the subject and of course I'm there to help those who don't understand some things or just need a little help or encouragement, but the student must be prepared to be tutored.

Personal Description:
I have always been very passionate about maths right from a very young age ergo it has been the subject I have throughout excelled in during my academic life. I have recently graduated with a 2.1 in Maths with Business at University of Surrey. Having done A-level Maths (with over 97% in all core modules) and Further Maths as well as Maths and Additional Maths at O-levels, Iam equipped with a solid foundation when it comes to tutoring Maths. Apart from academic stuff, I try to indulge in different maths activities such as UK Senior Maths challenge or Senior Maths Team challenge (on behalf of college). I have also been a Business Advisor for Young Enterprise UK's company programme.

Teaching Experience:

I haven't got an official experience as such but I have been tutoring my friends and family over years. They have always recommended me to get into teaching since they say that I have all the qualities to be a great teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is not at all fixed. Since maths has different aspects to it so I approach every student based on their weaknesses which I discuss on the first meeting. This means if someone has difficulties in remembering formulas, I work accordingly. If someone gets confused on how to approach a question, I adapt a different style. So it all depends on my tutee-which area he needs to work most on.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic teacher of English with a vast experience in the field of English and English Literature, Drama, Media, SEN and TESOL. I also have extensive experience in speech therapy, working with SEN children and ESOL requiring individuals.
I am currently on leadership and a governor status. I am involved with Ofsted and other agencies to improve both pupil learning and teacher training.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English and |TESOL both in the UK and abroad for the last 15 years.
I am qualified to each at all stages of the English education curriculum including EYFS , KS1-2, KS3-4-5, to an academic level.

Subjects taught vary as i have also taught Greek, Maths and Humanities up to KS4 despite my specialism being in English and Drama.

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor on a 1-1 basis, group basis, online and distance learning.

Personal Description:
Hi,
I am doing my Ph.D. in computer Science, which involve analysis of cyber attacks originating from social media. I also have bachelor's and masters degree in computer science. I have taught programming languages like C++ , C and python during my bachelor and masters program. In addition to that i have taught cryptography, cyber security and security techniques. I also have 8 years experience working as a currency trader with a financial institution.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2 years teaching experience teaching python programming languages to Adults, undergrads and master students. I have also taught data mining techniques using Microsoft excel , and tool such as Weka . Also i have taught introduction to Microsoft office

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!

With programming language my approach is first to make the student using various simple approaches like an algorithm or with a flow chart to solve it then once the confidence if built up to go to the syntax of the programming language. This approach not only will help you master any programming language quickly but improve ones analytical skills as well.

Personal Description:
My name is Iakovos and I am a qualified (holding QTS) and experienced teacher. I have been teaching Latin, Ancient Greek, Biblical Greek, Modern Greek, History and Religious Education since 2007. I am passionate about teaching and always looking forward to enriching my knowledge; not only in my areas of teaching, but also in other topics.

I also write poetry. Some of my poems have been published in Greek and Cypriot journals and I have also written two volumes of poetry, which have been published by Anazitiseis publishing house in Cyprus, my home country.

Teaching Experience:

I studied Latin and Greek at the University of Ioannina, Greece. The main subjects of my first degree are the following: Latin Language and Literature (like Roman Satire and Cicero), Ancient Greek Language and Literature (like Homer, Tragedy and Comedy), Byzantine Greek, Modern Greek, Philosophy and History.

After my first degree, I decided to continue my studies at a postgraduate level. I did a Master of Arts in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. After, I did a Master in Theology, specializing in World Religions, Monasticism and Philosophy. I am currently reading for a PhD at King's College London in Greek and Medical Humanities.

Apart from my long experience as a freelance teacher of Latin and Greek -at all levels: Entry Level, GCSE, A Level-, I also worked as a Latin and Greek teacher in Primary, Secondary and Higher Education in the U.K and other European countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an experienced tutor, as I have long experience in teaching 1:1, small groups of students, as well as groups of more than 20 pupils. Working as a language, RE and History tutor and teacher, my methodology is based on PowerPoint presentations, explaining Latin grammar, for example, through a comparison of Latin and English.

I am an expert user of HOTS (Higher-Order Thinking Skills), which challenge students and help them reach their potentials.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced journalist and academic tutor. I have spent hundreds of hours of teaching in classes and I have an outstanding ability to make even the most complicated concept understandable, due to my professional experience in the Media . I am proficient in producing various types of texts, from academic essays to fiction and blog content and I have tons of experience in producing them, both in Greek and in English.

Academically, I have two masters degrees from two of the most prestigious institutions in the U.K. The fields of my studies are Politics (specifically, political theory and constitutional design) and EU Politics. I graduated both M.Sc.s with distinction and particularly, my dissertations were examples of academic research of the highest standards and quality.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience in teaching, acquired during my academic career but also during the early stages of my professional career, when I used to work as a teaching assistant of various subjects, including English as a foreign language in Greece, Politics and EU Politics. I have worked with students of s undergraduate and graduate level, but also adult professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I see teaching and especially tutoring as a means of communicating something that is known and familiar to me, to another person. In order to be clear and concise, I try to asses what the individual knows about the issue that we are about to talk about and then I try give my teaching a structure of sections and subsections, in which I try to cover as much information as possible in the minimum possible time.

My experience in journalism has taught me that I have to start from the bare minimum, the essentials of the concept I am about to explain and then build up by adding extra information, giving examples, making historical comparisons and giving the context. Simultaneously, I am trying to asses whether my listener has understood and is at ease with what I have already covered.
