Personal Description:
I am a caring, creative and highly committed secondary school English teacher with over five years experience in teaching. I teach English Literature and English Language from KS3 to A Level. I have the ability to integrate humour, imagination and effective use of ICT to encourage a positive learning culture. I aim to inspire excellence in each and every pupil that I work with.

Teaching Experience:

August 2008 - June 2009: Rosshall Academy.
August 2012 - February 2013: Lagan College.
August 2013 - December 2013: Sperrin College.
January 2014 - June 2014: Campbell College.
August 2014 - June 2015: Lisnagarvey High.
August 2015- February 2016: Belfast Royal Academy.
February 2016 - July 2016: Carrickfergus Grammar.
August 2016 - present: Strathearn School, Belfast.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create a deep understanding and confidence in tackling exam questions. I firmly believe that it is essential to be comfortable with the basics of spelling, vocabulary, punctuation and structure before attempting more challenging aspects such as the analysis of linguistic features. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. My teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start with topics the students are comfortable with and move, gradually, towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and homework to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as stress management and logical thinking techniques. Where appropriate, I set and mark work and give students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.

Personal Description:
I am a bilingual and bi-cultural French-American. I first came to Belfast in 2009 to study at Queens University. After obtaining my degree, I realized I wanted to stay in Northern Ireland and devote myself to befriending its lovely people, finding peace through its beautiful landscape and sharing my knowledge of the French and English language with an ever-growing swell of curious students.
I grew up in France, just west of Paris, and attended a very prestigious international school that boasts rigorous bilingual education. As a result, I am well versed in both French and English systems of education.
I am also the proud mother of a young boy who is also being brought up completely bilingual.
My interests include art (more of a passion, really), literature (particularly French novels) and food (growing up in France helped a lot!).

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching a small class of mature students in the Belfast area. They are at an intermediate level and find the material we explore in the classroom to be highly stimulating. Also currently, I am giving personalized French tuition to A-level students. In this manner, I am well familiar with the course syllabus for secondary school and have been smoothing out whatever difficulties pupils may have regarding exams.
My past experience as a French language tutor also includes teaching absolute beginners at the Language Centre in Queens University in Belfast.
I have also given private one to one tuition to students from all different walks of life and different proficiency levels; from post-graduates looking to brush up on their skills before a holiday or work placement in France to married couples wanting to learn the foundations of the language before relocating to the French countryside.
I am a qualified language teacher and have been awarded a TEFL certificate.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is purely student-centred. I believe that the student's needs should lead how the lessons are designed. In other words, I pay very close attention to my students' interests, levels, motivations, difficulties etc. in order to produce a course that will respond to their needs and help them find the meaning, direction and confidence they need to master the language. My lessons are highly personalized to ensure the student can relate to the material and be compelled to participate actively. My main objectives when teaching are to engage my students with stimulating material, challenge and encourage their natural aptitudes and finally, to reward their efforts through positive and constructive feedback.
I believe in everyone's ability to master any language so long as the teacher breathes life into the language and in so doing, sparks the pupil's curiosity, imagination, confidence and critical thought.

Personal Description:
"Thank you very much for the great work you did with my daughter Sophie. She progressed from a 'C' grade to an 'A' grade in the space of 6 months and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends." - Billy, Bangor

As an experienced private tutor with a 100% pass rate, I offer highly effective, tailored lessons to a wide-range of students with various ability, learning types, and academic stages.

I have a passion for learning and fully appreciate all the forms that this can take. My approach is tailored to each student's own learning style and my methods aim both to support and to engage the student to continue learning in their own way.

Teaching Experience:

"The learning exercises were always set around my interest areas, making tuition both fun and effective. Following my sessions with Andrew, I have developed a more concise way of communicating. My writing now has more flow, which helps me say what I need to say." - Neil , Newtownabbey

Professional certified Life Coach and successful university graduate (1st class hons) with additional masters research degree. Taught at Secondary school and now several successful years tutoring especially English and Maths for most ages and stages, and passionate about nurturing the potential of each student whom I have the privilege to tutor.

Also a regular public speaker and workshop leader in areas including stress-awareness and communication skills, to self-care and personal development.

Tutoring Approach:

"Andrew was very professional in his approach to tutoring. My daughter gained confidence in her ability to understand her subject and to recall information using association techniques which proved very useful in her examinations."
Grainne, Randalstown

Combining motivational coaching techniques, I offer a fully engaging and personalised education. During the first session I will always undertake a comprehensive learning needs assessment, the results of which I make available to the parent. While encouraging the student to adopt high yet achievable targets for their own eduction, I am also sensitive to the level of each student and what he or she is ready to adopt.

This coaching-based approach I take has proven highly successful for my students, as my many positive references show. I approach each student and the sessions with an open-minded attitude of what I need to learn in order to be of support. I have many areas of interest outside of education, and pride myself in my ability to engage my students at their level and within their current areas of interest. My reward is seeing students succeed in their studies as well as developing their own personal skills and confidence.

AREAS COVERED / WHAT TO EXPECT

I help primary, secondary, university/college and mature students with reading, spelling, comprehension and every area of Maths up to GCSE. Alongside the specific subjects I tutor in, I can incorporate motivational coaching on exam and essay skills. This will ensure maximum value for your investment of time, effort and money

For English or Maths the first lesson will consist of a complimentary educational assessment (usually 30 minutes) to help identify key areas for improvement . All results shared with the parent/guardian. Based on this initial assessment, a 100% individual programme of learning is tailored for your child.

Upon request I am also able to provide emotional literacy around life skills such as: motivation, communication, self belief and concentration.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for tutoring Philip this year; he adapted well with you as his new tutor and enjoyed your approach to teaching.
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a tutor. I found him to be polite, courteous, reliable, and accommodating."
- Doreen, Ballyclare

Personal Description:
I am a current PhD student at Queen's University, Belfast studying fisheries science. My primary degree was in Marine Biology and masters degree was Animal Behaviour and Welfare. My main interest is studying shark behaviour. I have travelled around the world studying sharks and have learned various new skills from studying abroad that have enchance my teaching technique.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified scuba diving instructor so I give lectures every week as well as teach in the pool. I also have taught undergraduates at Queen's and taught A-level biology and GCSE maths from home.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to find out in advance what topics students struggle with most so I can prepare notes from my own previous files and text books then go through a check list periodically with them. At the end of each section I like to give a short quiz to make sure everything has been understood and repeat the lesson if anything is unclear.

My daughter really enjoyed attending weekly sessions with Melanie. She is now an avid reader and has recently been graded a reading level well above her age group."

"Melanie provided excellent tutoring and advice for my son during his preparation for the Transfer exams.

Personal Description:
Currently studying an MEng Degree in Software Engineering with a placement in a locally-based software engineering company. I have previously completed a HND in Computing and Systems Development with distinctions in every module, and achieved A* grades in GCSE and A level ICT. I have experience developing in a number of programming languages, including Java, C#, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and SQL. I have experience with both coursework and theoretical aspects of these courses and would be more than happy to help!

Teaching Experience:

-Experience delivering tuition to individuals and small groups through workshops delivered in the Apple Store, Victoria Square
-Delivered a series of Apple "Summer Camps" to children aged between 8-13 through the summer of 2015.
-Experience delivering coding classes and talks to peers.
-Tutored peers through A Levels and HND in regards to coursework and theory work.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends on whether the student needs support with the practical (coursework) side or the theory. With the theory, I often look through past papers with the student to establish common questions and work to get the most succinct and correct answer. With practical problems I would often set a smaller, simpler challenge related to the problem which can help the student understand, and then apply to their own coursework.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Mark and I have lived in Belfast for 20 years. I have always loved mathematics, and loved learning more about it. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject to you and help you maximise your potential. If you're coming up to major exams, I can help you get the best grade possible for you!

Teaching Experience:

I have lectured in Queen's University for 10 years, and have been teaching others mathematics for longer. My private students have done well with my support, and I can bring the best out of you too.

Tutoring Approach:

For some people maths is easy and enjoyable - you just need help sharpening up your examination skills and revising in a new way to get a top grade.

For other people maths is a challenge - you get the general idea but need help understanding some principles, and certainly need to practice in order to get the grade you deserve.

I have worked with both types of people for years, and I can work with you! I offer one-to-one tutorial sessions, in my home or yours, backed up by email and telephone support where needed.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching 16-19 year olds and adult learners for over 13 years, mainly in London and more recently in N Ireland. I love teaching, enabling and helping others learn. I have vast amounts of experience working with young people and adults from a range of backgrounds and with a range of abilities. I understand the anxieties and challenges involved in being a learner; as well as teaching I too am a student, studying for a Degree in Counselling, so realise how important it is to give learners support, clear guidance and help them create a structure for their learning. These are all the things I need to be able to continue studying. I am a friendly, approachable and organised person who can genuinely get along with, hopefully, just about anyone. I am passionate about music, cinema, exercise, my friends and family. I am comfortable giving and receiving constructive feedback and dealing with other's emotions and anxieties. After 15 years working as a tutor/trainer/teacher I still believe learning is a reciprocal process and remain enthused by it.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years teaching experience.

- I am currently teaching A level/Access level Psychology, Counselling Qualifications at various levels & HND courses

- Prior to that, I was Head of Psychology (A level) and Lead Lecturer at Tower Hamlets College - responsible for all aspects of teaching and learning. I have taught a range of syllabi including AQA, OCR & WJEC. I have also taught on numerous C&G introduction to teacher training courses and on part-time PGCE programmes as well as doing a significant amount of one-to-one work as a mentor of trainee teachers. In addition, I was a Tutor Leader, with responsibility for a case load of vulnerable 'at risk' learners.
- Birkbeck, University of London. Here I was a Psychology lecturer for open access adult courses including Foundations of Modern Psychology and Psychological issues in Adolescence. For the later I was solely responsible for developing the syllabus and all resources as well as the delivery and assessment of written work. Again, I am on sabbatical from this post.

- Over the years I have undertaken private tutoring for a range of learners - young people and adults, for both Psychology & Teacher-Training.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching and tutoring style is entirely learner-focused. I aim to empower learners to identity their own strengths and areas for development, but supporting them in this process. I prepare materials that will meet their needs, with an eye always on the syllabus and the skills needed in order to pass any assessment (exams or coursework).

An effective, warm, co-operative and empathetic working relationship is what I seek to establish from the start of the tutoring process. I encourage learners to be reflective and to review/self-assess the work they do, alongside any tutor feedback. I build in regular formal and informal assessment for all tutoring, giving learners a clear sense of their journey, and their priorities at any given time during their studies. I ensure that work is marked to agreed deadlines and feedback is clear, constructive and developmental in nature. I am comfortable working in one-to-one settings, either face-to-face, over the phone or via an e-learning environment.

Personal Description:
Having completed my first degree in French and German at Oxford University last June, followed by a MA in medieval and early-modern history , and then a MA in Translation at Queen's University Belfast, I am currently undertaking a PhD in Translation, also at QUB.

Teaching Experience:

During the last two years of secondary school I gave frequent tuition sessions in French and German to younger students. At Oxford I gained two years' experience with Jacari, a charity that teaches English to local children of a different mother tongue. I have also given additional tuition to students of GCSE history in an Oxford school.

I spent my year abroad teaching English to pupils aged 10 to 19 at a German grammar school, and have since instructed a number of tutees of ages 8 to 65 in English Language, French, German and Italian.

Tutoring Approach:

This variety of experience has taught me the importance of varying my teaching approach according to the needs and interests of the pupil. Obviously I keep a keen eye on the intended curriculum or goals at all times, but I am used and open to changing from more formal to more informal (i.e. games-based) tutoring methods as appropriate.

Personal Description:
I am a practising barrister in Belfast with a background in French Law and European Studies. As a practising barrister I have a wide range of legal experience across a number of sectors including Land Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law, Family Law and of course European Law. I lived in France for a year and completed a specialised Diploma in European Law. I can converse fluently in French and I have an excellent knowledge of written French and French Grammar.

I have bases in Ballymena and Belfast and my practice as a barrister takes me to all parts of the country. As a result, I am available to travel to a range of destinations. Please do get in contact to determine whether I can be of assistance.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent many years teaching a wide range of people from very young children to adults.I tutor 2-3 times weekly in addition to my practice as a barrister and find that my practical knowledge is of a huge assistance to all my pupils in assisting them to reach their maximum potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach each pupil differently according to their personality, skill set and ability to progress. I find that generally no two pupils are the same therefore one-to-one tutoring invariable yields the best possible results. However I demand absolute commitment from each pupil and expect everyone to fulfil their potential, regardless of their age or experience.

As i have a wealth of practical knowledge, I find I can easily distill difficult concepts for students who are struggling with confusing legalese and complex academic arguments. I can help with assignments, practice papers, model answers, tutorials and more difficult concepts that arise in lectures.
