Personal Description:
An experienced examiner. Graduated in Chemistry (BSc) before completing an MSc in Analytical Chemistry, I have been tutoring A-level Chemistry for 10 years. I started tutoring during my PhD studies and have continued ever since. In addition to this I have been marking A-level Chemistry papers for the last 5 years. (AS Organic, Foundation and practical modules). When I was studying in Liverpool, I helped up to 8 students at a time but will be limiting numbers this year. I generally try to make more time available in the run-up to exam season so I might be able to accommodate more.

Teaching Experience:

Approximately 30 students over the last 10 years.

10 Years of marking A-level Chemistry papers.

Tutoring Approach:

This will vary from student to student and the target grades. I am happy to negotiate the approach and pace with the student but do insist on studying around their specific syllabus and like to include exam technique and practise where I can.

I can work through the syllabus from begining to end, last minute cram sessions or limit the tutoring to specific problem areas.

Personal Description:
Confidence is often the stumbling block for learners, and I always encourage all of my students to feel an early sense of achievement. Enabling students to see real progress quickly is essential to the building of self-esteem. I am very approachable and my style of teaching is relaxed and friendly. I love my job and hope that my own enthusiasm inspires my students to excel. Recently I have added French to my repertoire, for absolute beginners. I am sure French will be as popular and exciting as English and Maths have been.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher since 1976. I have taught all age groups, from nursery to A Level. Teaching is a wonderful and totally satisfying vocation. I moved across to tutoring as I felt I could offer all of my experience in this role. Being a teacher is definitely something I was born to do, and I love it.

Tutoring Approach:

Students can learn by either visiting my home or at a distance using Skype. Every student is assessed as an individual and the content of their course tailored to their needs. I test my students periodically to ensure progress is going smoothly; also testing is a good way for students to observe their own progress. We use a variety of materials: books for writing and reading in English, and for revision in Maths; the computer for visual skills and games, listening and speaking is a major part of the programme for EFL students. Children learn in different ways, and I like to offer my students visual, auditory and kinetic tools, we can see which is most comfortable for the individual. The speed of learning is not as important as the confidence of the individual and their inspiration and motivation to progress.

Personal Description:
I am a kind person with a passion for music. I have many interests such as playing in bands, writing my own music, and music technology.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching all age groups from adults to young primary school children. I took a teaching module as part of my undergraduate music degree at trinity college of music. I am familiar with teaching one-to-one and groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I find everyone's brain absorbs information differently so I find it best to incorporate visual and aural exercises. I like to tailor what I teach to each individual for their own strengths and weaknesses to improve.

Personal Description:
I am a very experienced and successful tutor of English and Maths. I did an English degree at Cambridge, a PGCE at Nottingham, and then worked as an English and Drama teacher for 10 years, latterly as Head of Department. I have worked in educational and children's television since then, as a producer, director and writer. I have made over 500 programmes for broadcast on the BBC, Channel 4, and around the world, winning numerous educational awards in the UK and internationally. I am married with two children.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in and near London, for four years in a grammar school and for six years in two different comprehensives, teaching English Language and Literature, and Drama.
My teaching experience more recently has been through creating television scripts, CD-ROMs and websites, especially helping young people to enjoy and learn maths. Supporting my daughter through her GCSEs and A levels has kept me very much in touch with students' needs, and working with my son has given me great insight into children with special needs.
I am currently tutoring twenty two students, ranging in age from seven to seventeen.

Tutoring Approach:

I help children, young people and adults learn through motivating them and building their confidence. I aim to make learning thorough, clear, enjoyable and inspirational; to make obscure things interesting, complex things simple, and dull things entertaining. Learning should be purposeful and fun.

Reviews:
I contacted Chris because my son was struggling with his Maths and he was taking his GCSE in June. He needed someone to spend time with him to understand what his challenges were and to then explain and coach in a way he understood. Chris delivered this and more. He not only gave my son the technical knowledge on the areas he found difficult he showed him he was capable and built his confidence no end. He even went through how to approach the exam which proved invaluable on the day!
Chris came to our rescue at very short notice and really did put himself out and made sure my son had as much time as he could with him before his GCSE which showed Chris really cares about his students and that was very important to me.
I can't recommend Chris highly enough, he obviously knows his subjects and understands how to engage with students so they understand and learn which means they go into the exam in a position where they can do their absolute best. And as a parent that's all we can ask!
TB, Horsham: GCSE Maths

Chris is brilliant. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for extra tuition.
TS, Brockham: GCSE English Language, English Literature and Maths

Thank you so much for tutoring my son in KS3 English this year. You have given him much more confidence and his results have greatly improved. Best of all, he has really enjoyed coming to the sessions, so the improvement hasn't been gained at the cost of losing his love of reading and writing.
AR, Abinger: KS3 English Language and Literature

Very approachable and flexible on times. Professional approach and followed up each visit with an email on work covered/areas to study.
AB, Surrey: English Language and Literature

Thank you so much for helping our son. His teachers predicted B's at GCSE so you can imagine his surprise and delight when he got A*s in both GCSE English papers - not to mention the confidence boost. I know this was only achieved because of your teaching skills, patience, understanding & getting to know exactly how he ticked and what worked for him.
KW, Reigate: GCSE English and English Language and Literature

Really nice person, my girls think he's cool and are enjoying learning time with him
PB, Surrey: KS2 and KS3 English and Mathematics

I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson that I had with Chris and my only regret is that I had to finish due to other commitments. Having lessons with Chris not only extinguished anxieties I had around reading and writing but also reignited my passion for English Literature. He takes great interest in his students teaching with a non-judgemental approach, with bags of creativity, energy and passion for his subjects. I felt valued, understood and constantly encouraged and praised.
JC, Capel: Adult Learner, English Language and Literature

Chris's tutoring allowed me to gain confidence and realization in myself. Using understandable and valuable techniques in essay planning and writing which I used to pass my A Levels and continue to use at University!
AW, Surrey: A level English Literature

We were lucky to find Chris two years ago to help with our son's English when he moved from India to the UK. My son was overwhelmed with the change of the system in his early days but the personal touch offered by Chris made a huge difference in boosting his confidence. Chris quickly identified my son's weak areas and systematically worked with him in improving all aspects of his language skills.

What had started as a summer coaching for a few weeks went on for the next two years which turned out to be a great learning experience. It is needless to say that my son couldn't have achieved 'A' grades in both GCSE English language and Literature subjects without the professional tutoring delivered by Chris. We can't thank Chris enough for giving us much more than what we asked for.
VT, Fetcham: GCSE English Language and Literature

Chris has taken teaching as it gives him joy to see the young generation perform and improve. To him, it is like a hobby that he loves and not just a profession. I thought it was a bit difficult to change my son's attitude towards learning. Now when Chris is not there, my son really feels there is something missing. My son is now enjoying learning his most difficult subject. We can not really thank Chris enough.
MA, Horsham: GCSE English Language and Literature

Chris was very patient and positive/supportive with a somewhat reluctant 16 year old boy, and really helped him progress and also gain confidence with his maths and English. Chris has a very good understanding of the exam and education system and was keen to know exactly what my son was working on and what help he could provide, tailored to the exam texts etc. He was calm and patient and my son responded well to this, and even when tired after a day at school would try hard at the tutoring session. A very supportive positive approach. Highly recommended.

Personal Description:
An experienced and fully qualified teacher, I am friendly, flexible and patient.

I am familiar with the requirements of exams and the National Curriculum at all levels in the subjects I tutor.

I am available during weekday evenings and Saturdays, subject to previous bookings.

I cover the following postcodes: CB9, CB10, CB11, CB21, CB22, CB23, CM6, CM7, CM22, CM23, CM24.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught German and French in comprehensive schools since 1982 and was Head of Modern Languages in an OFSTED-rated outstanding school for 12 years. I am currently a GCSE German examiner for one of the main boards. I have been tutoring (mainly) GCSE pupils for three years, all of whom have improved their grades.

I retired from full time classroom teaching two years ago and, since then, have concentrated on one to one tuition, which I love, because it is possible to establish an individual relationship with each pupil.

I have run classes for younger pupils in French and German, which has given them confidence and a headstart when starting secondary school. Tuition rates depend on the size of the group.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand the difficulty pupils sometimes face in the classroom and aim to increase motivation and develop confidence, so that pupils take control of their own learning. Pupils are, of course, all different and I will work together with you to tailor lessons to individuals, whatever their level of ability.

Personal Description:
Having grown up in an Anglo Italian family in both England and Italy, I am totally bilingual and I have a passion for language teaching in all its aspects.

Teaching Experience:

II have taught both English and Italian language for many years and in all kinds of situations.

- I have taught all ages: from children to senior citizens.

- all levels, from elementary to advanced

- from individuals to university courses of over 100 students

- in a variety of professional contexts for companies

- in my home and in cafes to create an authentic environments.

I love seeing my clients make progress.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in putting students at ease and fostering a positive emotional environment within which the students can learn by doing. Believing there is no greater incentive than success I always adopt a positive approach to teaching.

Although grammar is fundamental to any language, I prefer to teach students collocations (groups of words that commonly go together) than dry grammar rules. I leads to people speaking more instinctively and spending less time worrying about the correctness of what they are saying.

Building confidence in the learner and helping them realise that they can transfer natural communication skills from their first language to their second language is key to their success.

Personal Description:
A first year Oxford Double Degree History student and double academic and music scholar. I was taught music at the Royal College of Music for over a decade. I am hard working, diligent and will always put my students first.

Teaching Experience:

Experience mainly tutoring younger children, but have done small ad-hoc pro bono tutoring sessions for older children. I specialise in both English and History tutoring, and I can tutor any book or any period for you child. Maths I will be willing to tutor up to GCSE at the most, given the board, and my music and sociology tutoring information can be provided at further request.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise at being able to tutor online: I feel this means students can maintain studying in an environment they feel comfortable in. Another benefit is that I can document all tutoring sessions - part of me services mean that I will copy up transcripts of all the sessions for both you and your child - this means you do not need to worry about sessions being missed. To ensure you get the most out of my time, I offer my services in blocks of 5 or 10: this means that I can thoroughly cover subjects. For example, if you require emergency tutoring with a book, 5 sessions would enable me to efficiently cram topics, whilst 10 would enable me to go through this more thoroughly with you or your child. How I tailor your blocks of 5 or 10 can be discussed between both you, me, and your child. For documentation purposes, I believe typing during the online sessions can be maximally beneficial: both the child can see what i'm writing, whilst you as the parents can see exactly what is being discussed. However, if you would like me to use voice calling as well as video calling, this is no problem either.

Personal Description:
I'm an Italian girl from Rome who recently moved to the UK to start university at Goldsmiths College. I was raised in a bilingual home, with an Italian father, and Italo-American mother. I'm sociable and open with an interest in music, animals (I have three dogs back home) and sports, especially sailing. I love children and have experience in babysitting: this is why I'm looking to tutor younger people. I'm looking for a job which will not interfere with my studies in order to make a little money aside from what I receive from my family.

Teaching Experience:

I do not have extensive teaching experience, but in Rome I babysat and nurtured two young Italian girls (6 and 8 years old) for around 2 years. As I am bilingual, on request from the girls parents, I often adressed them in English in order to better their language skills. We played educational games, held conversations, watched films and sang songs in order to make the experience as fun and entertaining as possible. Although I realize that I dont have considerable experience I am eager to learn, and teach. Furthermore I was raised with a younger sibling, and in close contact with 3 younger cousins of which I was often left in charge.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to make it as engaging and enjoyable as possible. Youngsters are often in school for a good part of the day, and to leave school just to be privately tutored for an hour or two may result discouraging for them. In order to make these lessons a pleasure, as opposed to a chore, I hope to employ teaching tactics which will produce satisfaction and gratification. I am open to suggestions by part of the parents, but if left to my own accord I would employ the following activities: conversation, typical Italian games which will extend vocabulary, general culture, cooking typical plates, singing traditional songs, watching funny clips, reading stories aloud, and playing pretend games. If required I will be able to engage in grammatical lessons as well, helping the children memorize verbs, quizzing them, and leaving them assignments to work on at home.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Jake

I am an experienced photographer/videographer with many years of practice, I have a degree from Nottingham Trent University along with a video production company called Capture the Guru. Over the years I have worked in many different areas of both disciplines, finding myself specialising in architectural photography and music based videography.

I have in-depth knowledge in both practical skills and in the psychology of interpreting images and video, this allows me to not only teach you how to take and record quality material, along with how to work with it in post-production but to also consider how your work will be received.

However most importantly I want to take the interest that you have currently and give you the skills to truly produce material to be proud of, along with further instilling the enjoyment that is so important.

Teaching Experience:

I have not had much formal teaching experience as of yet, however I have taught a fair few people tricks in order for them to produce better snaps. Whilst I was studying me and a group of friends on the course banded together to help teach each other the parts we struggled with, I was always very apt with the technical side of photography and would teach the others how to used different forms of cameras and how to emulate specific styles that we were learning about.

Now however since working within video my colleague and me are constantly teaching each other new tricks whilst filming and editing.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is simple, to discover the level of enjoyment and enhance it. We can all become frustrated when the need to produce our ideas is limited by our current knowledge and when it comes to mediums like photography and videography a practical hands-on lesson far surpasses any online tutorial.

I am a very hand-on and location based teacher, Instead of giving you material to read I want to show you techniques, allow you to feel what it is like to be searching for an image you may not fully understand.

Personal Description:
Reliable and qualified Maths Teacher with 20+ years of experience of tutoring individuals and groups.

I care deeply about teaching and learning in general and the teaching of mathematics is a particular passion for me. I am a secondary school mathematics teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have completed a BSc in Accounting, an ACCA qualification and a PGCE course. I am currently studying for my MSc Education degree. I have 20+ years experience as a tutor and 10+ years as a teacher. I have also worked for an acounting firm for 5 years and worked as a company director for 7 years.

My first session is provided free of charge and I use this session to understand the needs of prospective pupils. At the end of the session, I have a frank and honest discussion with the pupil and/or their guardians. I use these conversations to listen to the concerns of the pupils and/or their guardians and present an outline of my assessment of the student's areas of strengths and weaknesses. I also suggest a course of action to help the pupil move forward.

Teaching Experience:

I have been providing tuition in mathematics for over 20 years and have been a secondary school Mathematics Teacher for over 10 years. I have tutored A Level, university, AAT, CAT, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA students in accounting for over 10 years and have 5 years experience teaching professioanl accounting courses in private colleges. I have experience teaching to individual students, to small groups and to classes of up to 35 students. I have helped four year old pupils take their first steps in arithmetic and forty plus year old students finally understand how algebra works. In accounting I have worked with 16 year olds studying accounting for the first time for A Levels or CAT or AAT and 40+ year olds who have working in accounting for a long time and are studying for their professional exams.

I have helped students gain confidence in their own mathematical ability when they have been convinced by the academic system that they are incapable of doing well in the subject. I have also helped higher attaining students to challenge themselves and aspire to become even better. Most recently my Year 7 students were the only gold medallists in the UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge in my secondary school. They did considerably better than all the other Year 7 students and even all the Year 8 students in the school who sat the same exam.

Tutoring Approach:

During the last two decades I have worked with many hundreds of students and have read research studies from academics around the world on the subject of attainment in mathematics. My own experience is in keeping with all the studies I have read about this topic. The overwhelming majority of students can do well in mathematics provided they have the confidence, the techniques and willingness to work hard. Even after only six to eight weeks of tuition, all the students I have tutored have improved by at least one grade or one level.

I tell all prospective pupils there is no magic bullet or shortcut. To achieve success in mathematics a few things are key: understanding the concept well; understanding when and how to apply it in different situations; lots of practice in applying it in different scenarios and short, regular revision sessions. So my only pre-conditions before I agree to work with any student are: a positive attitude; a commitment to put in the time and effort required to bring about the improvement in their grades; and at least one ninety minute session every week.

It is important to me that students should enjoy mathematics and look forward to their sessions with me. To ensure this I use a variety of different resources to explain concepts to students and am a firm believer in using physical and computer based study tools and aides to complement the standard oral and written tools used to teach mathematics. I also believe in linking the mathematics that we study to the real world to increase students' engagement with the topic and their understanding of its relevance. I am very patient and empathetic to my student's needs and once they develop in confidence I encourage all my students to challenge themselves regularly. Depending on the amount of time available, I usually help students cement their mastery of the foundations of arithmetic and algebra before moving on to establish fluency in statistics, geometry and problem solving.
