Personal Description:
My name is Michael and I teach private one to one drum kit lessons to people of all ages, in and around the Yorkshire area. I have been playing the drum kit for over 20 years and started playing at the early age of 11. Since then I have been in many bands and performed in many venues in and around the Yorkshire area.
After studying music at school in Scotland and forming my first band I soon found myself addicted to the drum kit. I decided I wanted to further my skills by getting private drum kit lessons which helped me gain my Standard Grade/GCSE and Higher Grade/A-Level in Music. I then furthered this by studying a BTEC in Popular Music at Huddersfield Technical College and a BA (Hons) in Popular Music at the University of Sheffield. I have also recently completed my PGCE in Life Long Learning at the University of Huddersfield and hold QTLS with IfL.

Teaching Experience:

I had my first teaching experience when I was 16 years old at a music workshop during the summer holidays where I was involved in teaching groups of people how to play the drum kit within a band setting. At the end of the workshops each group that had formed had to perform their songs to the public.

Since then I always had a desire to pursue my teaching and in 2006 I started teaching at Rhythm Inc Music Tuition in Barnsley. Initially, I only had a couple of students that I would teach in my spare time between my job and other commitments. However, more students started coming and having only started with a couple I soon had enough to become self-employed and put my all into my teaching.

In 2007 I started teaching at Take 2 Music Academy in Birdwell, Barnsley and at Rockem Music in Rotherham. I have taught at other private music schools and in local schools in the Yorkshire area. I also have experience delivering group workshops within both private and local schools.

Currently, in 2012 I opened my own teaching studio based in Wakefield, and continue to teach at Rhythm Inc Music Tuition in Barnsley, Take 2 Music Academy in Birdwell, Barnsley and at Rockem Music in Rotherham. I have recently completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Lifelong Learning and hold QTLS with IfL (Institute for Learning)

I am fully CRB and DBS checked and currently have a 100% pass rate for students sitting their graded exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are taught on a one to one basis using two drum kits, one for the student and one for myself. Choice of electric of acoustic drum kits. Lessons are taught at the students own pace and involves practical work.

GROOVES
Learn all styles of drumming such as Rock, Blues, Latin, Metal, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, etc.

Personal Description:
I am a well experienced native Teacher of Spanish, able to teach any level or age range. I have two language teaching degrees, one of them specifically for teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I am also a very enthusiastic person and very passionate about my job.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching since 1999 in Spain, Wales, England and Israel. I have had students from 2 to 72 years old and I have experience in Primary, Secondary (GCSE, IGCSE and A Level), Business and Higher Education (Menéndez Pelayo International University in Santander, one of the most famous Spanish Universities regarding Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.)

My students usually get fantastic grades. This year one of my GCSE students got an award for attainment, she got full marks in her GCSE Spanish exams, top of her school.

Tutoring Approach:

Communicative approach. I try to make my students talk in Spanish as much as I can, as this is how to make the most of every lesson. The best way of learning a language is using it. To propitiate this I try to build a relaxed atmosphere where the students are not afraid of trying to use what they are learning.

I also teach the Spanish Language via our culture, by for example learning about our most famous festivals, our history or our customs. I even teach about our food....and how to make some of our most popular dishes like paella or tortilla española....by actually making them!

Some of other activities you can find in my lessons include singing, watching videos, drama, games, etc...The whole point is to make every lesson interesting and entertaining.

  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Fully qualified teacher with 25 years experience of teaching FRENCH, GERMAN & SPANISH to GCSE, AS LEVEL and A LEVEL in schools and colleges. I have also prepared many groups for Cambridge exams in ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE.
I currently teach MODERN LANGUAGES (to A Level) and RELIGIOUS STUDIES (to A Level) in a Sixth Form College.
I teach ADULT LEARNERS too, at all levels, both for GENERAL LANGUAGE and BUSINESS LANGUAGE.
I have prepared hundreds of youngsters over the years for GCSEs and AS/A LEVELS in these subjects and am very familiar with the demands of these courses and exams.

Teaching Experience:

I teach in a Birmingham Sixth Form College where I work as Head of French
I have taught pupils/students in UK schools and Colleges over the last 25 years, specialising particularly in MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and AS/A Levels.
My teaching experience has been mainly in UK schools and colleges but has also included 5 years living and teaching in France, Spain and Germany.
I worked at Stafford College of FE for 9 years where I was head of MODERN LANGUAGES
I have been an Examiner for MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and A Level with a major Examination Board.

Tutoring Approach:

Professional and friendly approach, looking for real, measurable progress and increased confidence for the learner
Most young learners need a tutor who understands the requirements of the GCSE / AS / A Level exams and can train students in tasks that will prepare them for these
I find that students often need their confidence boosting and many discover that they know more than they realised.
Adults also learn fast and are often surprised to find they are more able than they thought

View Tom's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am an elite tutor with a Masters Degree in English Literature from the University of Cambridge. I specialise in English and Drama, and I also speak Italian to near fluency. I studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and I am now a full time theatre director, working freelance. I have worked on shows in the West End, at the National Theatre and the Almeida Theatre among others.

I also have specialist experience of Oxbridge admissions and drama school applications.

My literature specialties are Shakespeare, American literature and all literature of the last thirty years.

Teaching Experience:

I have now been tutoring consistently for over seven years. Every one of my students has achieved the highest possible grade in the subjects in which I have tutored them.

Testimonies from previous students:

'We could never have done it without Tom'

'Tom was everything we could have asked for in a tutor. Helpful, reliable and seemed to gel immediately with our son'

'Tom was able to sort out many difficult areas in the syllabus.
Through the course of the lessons I gained the confidence and clarity needed for a very important exam.
I highly recommend Tom as he is a patient and kind teacher that I believe can provide help to any student struggling with drama.'

I worked as a volunteer teacher at an international school in Swaziland for three months, running drama classes and English classes. I also coached the school rugby team. In the drama classes I focused very much on basic dramatic skills through games and exercises, while the English classes were much more specific, focusing on Shakespeare texts and working in particular on Graham Swift's 'Waterland', which was a set text for the IB exam that year. I am currently affiliated with the National Youth Theatre as well as several drama schools; I work with educational projects in theatres and drama schools around London, working closely and extensively with students and young people.

Tutoring Approach:

When I tutor I like to be very open and conversational with the student. What is especially important is that the student comes away with the belief not that they have been dictated to, but that they have discovered things for themselves. I ask a lot of questions, guiding the student towards a conclusion rather than imposing it directly. This makes for a very interactive and exciting experience, an experience that contrasts perfectly with the proscriptive, curricular methods of traditional schoolteaching.

My approach also enables me to adapt to the needs of each individual student, and to have conversations both with them and with their parents. I recognise that each tutee has specific, unique needs, and I am totally prepared to adjust my style to such needs.

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 am working as a Teacher at a School (Details available on Request.) I Have worked as a Physics Lecturer at Brooklands College.currently I am working with school where I teach A level physics and medical science. I am also working with many Tutoring Agencies like Top Tutors,Galaxies Learning,and Delta Tutors.I am also working with Saturday School.

Teaching Experience:

Currently working as a teacher and teaching Maths and Science up to GCSE. Physics and Maths up to A level.

Also working as with many tutoring agency such as Top Tutors,Galaxies Learning and Delta Tutors.

Worked In various School.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe dont go for per hour price just look towards quality of education not quantity and result will be in your hand.
My tutoring approach will depend on the students learning ability, I can differentiate the student according to different range of ability and then work according to that.
I believe that tutoring should in most cases supplement the teaching that is received at school. I will focus on any difficulties that the student is facing and also concentrate on answering exam questions - especially answering techniques. If the student requires more extensive teaching of the syllabus then I will happy to go through this in further detail.
I honestly believe that a Teacher hasn't taught until the student has learnt.

Personal Description:
I can provide tuition in a wide range of Economics and Business related subjects e.g. Marketing, Accounting, HRM. I live in the Bournemouth area but am willing to travel to provide tuition and I am also able to provide Skype/e-mail tuition for those students who live a long distance from me. I will also provide references from past students, reflecting the value added I can offer you, in order that your grades will improve. I am able to help anyone at any level, from GCSE up to Masters and beyond.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and lecturing for over 25 years and have accumulated much experience which I am able to pass on to my students. One of the key benefits I can offer you as a student is providing critical analysis and evaluation when completing your assignments. This is extremely important for grading and often means the difference between a 2:1 and 2:2 or higher. For the dissertation it is fundamental, but even in year one and for Foundation degrees it is essential. I will thus ensure all your coursework is focussed, adheres to the assignment grading spec and includes critical analysis and evaluation.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide specialised and comprehensive notes which will assist you in your learning. I can give coursework or assignment help (planning, writing, editing, suggesting improvements etc) and assistance with your exam preparation. If you live a long distance away you can e-mail your assignments/coursework to me for editing and improvements. I will then e-mail them back to you with the improvements. I am also able to help you via Skype if you live a long distance from me. So even if you do not live in Bournemouth I am still able to help you.

Client Reviews:

'Lisa was honestly the best tutor! She is a highly knowledgeable teacher of Physics and helped my daughter really understand her subject. She was great at explaining everything. She definitely helped my daughter raise her grade GCSE. I would highly recommend Lisa' From Alghamadi, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Physics)

'Lisa has tutored our daughter for the last two years. When our daughter first began working with Lisa she was working from a below average baseline and had little confidence. What a difference an hour a week with a capable maths tutor makes as our daughter has recently secured a grade B in her GCSE maths -Grade E to Grade B that's some going!! All credit for our daughter's amazing progress goes to Lisa and her patient, friendly, but tenacious teaching style. We are so pleased that we found Lisa, she has been an absolute Godsend! Highly recommended!' From Gail Baker, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Maths)

'Lisa has supported our daughter with Maths throughout year 11. She made her feel she could ask for help as many times as needed and was always patient and supportive. Our daughter has had several 'eureka' moments with Lisa in which she actually truly understood concepts she has struggled with at school. Lisa definitely motivates her students to believe in themselves and encourages them to reach their full potential. We highly recommend working with Lisa.' From Elly Dolan, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Maths)

'Absolutely fantastic tutor. Lisa helped me to get 2 A*'s and an A in Maths and science, which allowed me to get into the college I had applied for. I would definitely recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to achieve the best that they can, at any level.' From Jack, Score 5/5, August 2015 (GCSE Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Additional Maths & Further Maths)

'My daughter has just gained A's in both Physics and Chemistry at GCSE. These are not easy subjects and finding Lisa has made a massive difference. She explains difficult areas and makes the subject become alive and understandable. This has given her confidence and fortunately she covered areas that the school had not and that actually came up in the exam! She has a lovely auora about her and can make anyone feel calm and relaxed and ready to learn. She is a great communicator, organised and efficient and worth her weight in gold! many thanks Lisa', From Tracey, Score 5/5, August 2014 (GCSE Physics and Chemistry)

'Lisa taught my son and I am so glad I found her. She is highly intelligent and I soon realised my son was in very professional hands which was very comforting as we drove one hour every week sometimes twice a week to get to her. Lisa has a lovely personality and would make anyone feel comfortable the moment you meet her. Her schedule is extremely busy and she is very much in demand. So don't delay if you want to grab a spot in her diary. A very happy family. Worth every penny.' From Yvette, Score 5/5, September 2014 (GCSE Maths, Physics & Chemistry)

From Mrs Bird: 'With thanks & gratitude for your excellent tutoring, this combined with Imogen's hard work has been reflected in her GCSE results - an 'A' in Mathematics(Higher), 'B' Science & 'C' in Additional Science. This time last year she had really 'lost her way' with her studies but with your personal approach, guidance & support you gave Imogen the renewed interest & confidence to achieve...without hesitation we would recommend you, thank you' (August 2013)

From Hariett (5/5):(A-level Physics) 'Lisa is very approachable, we have built up a good relationship as a result she has built up my confidence on the areas in which I felt lacking.' (April 2013)

From Angela (5/5): (GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry) 'Right from the beginning Lisa was professional and friendly and continues to be so. Although it is early days I do feel that my daughter is already benefitting from Lisa's input.
Highly recomended!' (March 2013)

From Athena (5/5): (A-Level Physics) 'Excellent knowledge, very good teacher, highly professional' (November 2012)

From Lee (August 2012) 'I would definately recommend Lisa as a tutor, she helped me gain a grade A in a-Level Physics. Lisa is extremely good at making the understanding of Physics easier and will happily explain principles thoroughly until you understand. Lisa also provided lots of past exam papers which i found extremely helpful. Lisa is also very easy to get along with and very welcoming.'

From Teresa (5/5): (GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry) 'Lisa has been working with our 15 year old son to prepare him for his maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSEs as well as helping him to master some study skills and to be better organised in his school work and homework. He has shown significant improvement in a very short space of time with Lisa's support. He enjoys his lessons and has gained a better, more in-depth understanding of the subject matter. Lisa is reliable, friendly and flexible in her ability to cover a broad range of subjects. I would recommend Lisa without hesitation. (August 2012)

From Ian (July 2012) 'Lisa coached our grammar school student son during the last two months of his GCSE physics study and made a real improvement to his level of understanding. I know that the tutoring will have definitely improved his grade.

We found her to be polite, understanding and easy to work with. My son felt at ease with her and she was flexible and able to accommodate our needs at short notice. I would definitely recommend her.'

From Christine (5/5): (A-Level Physics) 'Always punctual and worked hard with our son on improving his Physics.' (June 2012)

From Louise (5/5): (A-Level Physics) 'Three months ago our son was struggling with AS Level Physics. Lisa's organised approach has given him the confidence to tackle the subject and hopefully achieve a very good grade. Highly recommended. Louise.' (1st June 2012)

'From Bridget (5/5): (GCSE Maths) So far so good! George is really enjoying his lessons which is great as he had been put off Maths by an uninspiring teacher at school.
Keep up the good work. '(May 2012)

'Many thanks to Lisa for working with both my teenage girls who have differing abilites. Lisa was able to identify their individual needs and provide work which supported their learning styles and range of understanding. LG 3.1.12. Score 5/5'

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher for more than thirty years. I was a university lecturer and private tutor in Hungary and I continued teaching as a tutor when I came to England. I am passionate about teaching; helping pupils improve is very important to me.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I was teaching drama at different levels, as well as English literature and language. I started teaching Maths for younger children when I came to England. I also marked theses in Literature as a lecturer and advised students on writing papers in Literature. I taught several courses; for example, Essay writing, Language skills, Communication skills and Drama and Theatre. I based my drama lessons on my experiences as a Fulbright scholar at the Drama Department at the University of Oregon, USA.
I am especially enthusiastic about helping students with their essays; teaching them how to find focus and express their ideas precisely and coherently; organise and proofread their work; how to write a good introduction and conclusion.
Pupils I have taught have been admitted to Wolverhampton Girls' High School, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Chase Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient teacher. I have helped children and adults of different ages to achieve their goals. In my opinion anyone can improve; the teacher's role is essential in the process. It is my responsibility to understand individual needs and to make sure that I create the best learning environment both physically and psychologically.
I am friendly and strict at the same time.
It is very important to tailor lessons to individual needs. My main priority is to find the best way to help the student improve. Motivating them can take different forms: encouragement, gentle pressure, being more strict and so on. Every student is different; it is my responsibility to find the best approach.

Personal Description:
I have extensive experience of different photographic genres over many years with a particular specialism in wildlife, landscape and creative environmental photography projects. I have a first degree in BA(Hons) Wildlife & Environmental Photography from Blackpool and the Fylde College and an MA in Wildlife Documentary Production.

Previous to taking these courses as a mature student I practiced location and journalistic photography in my capacity as Film Unit Manager for the London Borough of Greenwich, photographing on film sets such as About a Boy with Hugh Grant and the remake of the Four Feather with Kate Hudson and Heath Ledger.

I have won a number of prestigious photography competitions including the Royal Horticultural Society silver award for macro images of flowers and was a finalist in the Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. I have exhibited in the Look 13 International Photography Exhibition, other locations in the northwest of England, London and New York. I have also made two short wildlife films which mix documentary with fictional elements in story telling.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at a number of leading institutions including Ravensbourne College of Media and Communication, Blackpool and Fylde College, Liverpool University and Cumbria Wildlife Trust as well as personal tuition and mentoring on creative photography. I have also volunteered on nature photography projects with Embrace Cooperation Ltd for secondary school children and adults. I can teach you how to use your DSLR camera plus the basics and more advanced tools for creative photography and documentary style projects. Complete beginners to the more advanced photographer welcome.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a 1.5 hour introductory photography lesson to individual adult learners at the special rate of £75. This may be enough to help you get to grips with your camera and/or establish whether the teaching methods and aims fit. Also good as a present!

Please note that all individual adult lessons will take place in or near the Waterloo/Southbank area of central London.

I like to teach photography in a creative way, allowing the pupil to develop their own style through a process of fieldwork, set projects and the study of other artists and photographers. They will start to see the world in a different way. It is a great confidence builder as well as a skills provider.

Comment from a previous student:

"Just a quick note to say thank you for such an inspiring and brilliant course. ............. I have learnt so much, it's been a real inspiration to me." Sarah-Jane

I am also able to teach groups at special rates and team-building days with corporates and organisations. Mentoring of individuals in the process of career change and personal development. Please enquire about any of the above.

N.B. Lessons can be taken within one year of purchase. Additional rates quoted for travel beyond central London. Most teaching takes place at a location on the Southbank.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated Teaching Professional, with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 25 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults, interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals, as well as communicating inside the family.

My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.

I tend to focus in improving spoken fluency and listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition as part of the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.

I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results of good communication between both parties and learner assessment throughout the course.

Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and supporting the students in improving their skills.

I can ensure fast and excellent results.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Luis. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea. I am from Spain and I am very passionate about academia and learning in general.

My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology (biology), ocean dynamics and sediment geochemistry (chemistry). Data interpreting is part of my research work and it involves statistics of academic level and mathematical modelling.

I collaborated with AU Science Magazine writing blog posts and editing articles. I am currently involved in a Research Development initiative to create a collaborative framework within the University of Aberdeen for researchers and students alike.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a demonstrator at the University of Aberdeen since October 2014, where I assist in the following courses in two Schools:

School of Biological Sciences:
- Oceans and Society (SX1015)
- Animal Population Ecology (ZO3307)
- Ecology and Environmental Science (BI1511)

College of Natural and Computing Sciences:
- Chemistry for the Life Sciences (CM1020)
- Chemistry for the Physical Sciences (CM1021)

I have ample tutoring experience from when I was at University in Spain and I continue tutoring to this day in Aberdeen (+6 years). I have long-distance students whom I tutor via Skype. I was also a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students.

Tutoring Approach:

Where students find difficulties I like to break down concepts into simpler pieces that then assemble to represent the entire idea. I also think it is important to let the pupil know the purpose of these concepts in a wider context so that they can appreciate the value of learning the contents of the course.

Finally, I am an advocate of enjoying learning and always endeavour to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor and current A level and GCSE teacher with over 22 years experience.
I have had a lot of success with my private tutoring, having helped many students achieve the grades they need to gain entry to the university courses of their choice - including medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry.
I have helped students in all the main exam boards including AQA, OCR and Edexcel

I have excellent communication skills and a very approachable manner which quickly puts students at ease.

I am married and have four children, three of which have passed through A levels so I know what it is like as a parent and teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a secondary and sixth form for 24 yrs and am currently a GCSE and A level Biology and Psychology teacher as well as a sixth form tutor.

I have been tutoring Biology and Psychology for over 20 yrs with great success with students from both the state and private sector. I have helped students from Collyer's; The Weald School; Steyning Grammer; Seaford College; Worth School; Farlington and Reigate Grammer to name a few.

My subject knowledge is very good being educated to BSc (Hons) in Biology and MSc in Psychology

I am very flexible and will either tutuor in my own home or am happy to travel to you.

Tutoring Approach:

My main focus has been tutoring and teaching A level Biology and more recently Psychology.and have been very successful in helping students of all abilities to improve their grades to allow them to make their next step in their education.

My strengths are that I have very good communication skills and put students at ease allowing for the greatest progress to be made.

I focus on two main areas. Firstly in breaking down theory areas to make it understandable. I get students to learn key words and use revision spider diagrams to see the overview of difficult topics so they don't get lost in the theory. Then I use these spider diagrams to help them select accurately the correct theory areas to answer exam based questions.

Secondly I focus on exam technique, deconstructing questions to focus on how to structure an answer and then to select the correct theory to use in the answer.

I can offer a selection of services.

A) simple tuition: focusing of understanding specific areas as the student needs

B). Tutoring programme: setting up and organising a tutoring programme for several lessons that will cover, systematically, a larger area of the subject.

C). Revision programme: creating a revision programme with the student and managing the students revision programme in the subject (s). This will take the student up to the exam.

I Include setting and marking exam based H/W's.

I also include revision material and workbooks as well as past paper packs with mark schemes.

I have been very successful with students from those wanting to take up Medicine, Veterinary or Dentistry courses, to those who just want a pass to everyone in between.
