Personal Description:
I am currently undertaking a funded History PhD at King's College London.

I hold a Masters in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies for which I was awarded a distinction and full funding as well as a BA Hons (First Class) in history and politics from the University of York. Given this, and my A Level subjects, I can offer private tuition in history, politics, geography and law, in preparation for GCSE, AS and A level exams. I am an organised, committed, reliable and enthusiastic individual who enjoys working with children and young adults, helping them to develop their understanding and interest in a variety of subjects.

I have tutored for a number of years, and have helped those I tutor to significantly improve their exam results and grades, often taking them from C and D level grades up to high As and Bs. My most recent tutee, who I tutored in GCSE Geography and History, acheived an A* in both subjects and came top of his year at school for his GCSE grades.

I am also happy to offer any help I can with university applications.

In the lead up to the exam period I can provide intensive revision sessions and/ or revision guides for any of the subjects listed below.

References can be provided upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored since 2007, and have helped those I tutor to significantly improve their exam results and grades, often taking them from C and D level grades up to high As and Bs.

For several years I have undertaken a variety of volunteer projects, working within schools/ educational environments and with children :- this has included working at the University of York, Barley Hall (York), Westminster Palace and the Tower of London. Whilst working in these environments, I conducted a range of independent historical research projects. I then planned educational sessions based on these materials, which I then delivered to school children of various ages and abilities. It was necessary to ensure that the material collected was not only historically accurate but also easy to understand and enjoyable to learn about, helping the children to develop an interest in different periods of history.

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst tutoring I would pay particular attention to the needs of each student, and tailor their study courses to best meet their needs and wishes. My approach to tutoring emphasises clarity, flexibility, and an enthusiasm for learning, within an informal and relaxed yet structured and interactive environment. I would encourage students to think imaginatively and challenge themselves academically, encouraging debate and broadening their horizons. This would not only help to improve a child's examination technique but also their academic development.

In the lead up to the exam period I can provide intensive revision sessions and/ or revision guides for any of the subjects listed below.

Personal Description:
I am very patient and tolerant but very effective in imparting right techniques in Maths. I encourage independent thinking and asking questions. I am currently teaching in a Sixth Form college and I have a good experience in teaching AS/A2 Maths, Accounting and Business Studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching to sixth form students for quite a long time now and have delivered excellent results. After completing my Master's in International Business, I have been working at Independent Sixth Form college in Birmingham since September 2010 teaching AS/A2 Maths, Accounting and Business Studies. Working in a sixth form college has given me immense confidence to deal with students.

Tutoring Approach:

I put a lot of emphasis on past papers and exam reports as its very important to read Examiner's Mind frame before attempting any paper. I believe that examiners understand the mind of a student through his/her written attempt, not how hard a student has worked or how impressive his subject knowledge is. In order to facilitate this, I have a vast resource of Past papers and Exam reports which prove quite conducive for my tutees.

Personal Description:
I am an English and Spanish Postgraduate Student with a Master's degree in Spanish and Teaching Foreign Languages. I am a Spanish native speaker but I was raised bilingually between Spain and the UK. I really enjoy teaching Spanish and English, since they are both part of my background.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Spanish and English privately for 5 years. This private tuition consisted in one-to-one or small group classes. I also taught Spanish at West Virginia University (USA) for two academic years and English at a Language School in Spain for two years. In these contexts, classes were bigger, from 5 to 25 students per class. I currently teach Spanish Language and Literature at University of London.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to adapt my teaching method to the student's preferences and learning style, but I think it is very important to promote communication in the target language as much as possible during the lesson. This makes students more confident and also facilitates language acquisition greatly. It is also essential to make the lesson as entertaining and dynamic as possible, because if the student is enjoying the lesson, they will learn more easily and quickly.

Personal Description:
I have tutored secondary school students in the sciences, mathematics and French (I am bilingual in French and English) since 2012. This builds on my volunteering as an Academic Buddy at university and as a mentor for special needs children, as well as giving academic help to peers throughout school and university. With an excellent scientific background (I graduated with a 2:1 in Physics from Imperial College London in 2012) and my empathetic, patient, encouraging and conscientious nature, I greatly enjoy adapting my approach to different pupils' needs and personalities. This September I will begin studying Medicine at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry after spending 2 years tutoring and gaining experience in the medical field.

In my spare time I love to sing (I have sung in several choirs at school and university and done some backing vocals in an Indie band), listening to many different types of music and playing the guitar and piano. I also hugely enjoy exercise such as rowing (including very early morning sessions!) and going for long runs. My other interests are cooking, drawing, painting and reading.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored mathematics, the sciences and French for secondary school students from year 7 to year 13 since 2012. My tutoring experience includes year-long tuition supporting pupils' learning throughout the academic year for Physics and Further Mathematics A Level, lower secondary and GCSE Mathematics and Chemistry and Physics GCSE. I have also given several intensive revision sessions in the holiday period for GCSE and iGCSE in Mathematics, French and the sciences (both the separate sciences and double award). I also gain great satisfaction from using my bilingualism to tutor French up to and including GCSE level. I find pupils particularly enjoy learning French first-hand from someone who has grown up in France and experienced the French education system.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy explaining concepts in a clear and logical way and breaking down complex processes into easily understood steps. Throughout my Physics degree I have gained experience in presenting difficult topics in an accessible way.
I very much believe in making sure tutees actually understand the concept behind topics, as once they have grasped the concept they are able to apply it to other areas and to tackle trickier questions by themselves, and gain much more satisfaction than they would from pure rote learning.
I have a calm, patient and encouraging attitude towards my tutees and use my empathy to adapt my approach to suit each pupil's personality and learning style, whether they need help with the basics, stretching with tougher questions or encouragement in an area they are less confident in.
I will start off finding out a pupil's strengths, weaknesses and concerns in the subject, making sure they are confident with basic principles, and move on in a logical order, guided by the syllabus where needed.

Personal Description:
I am a multi-instrumentalist originally from the Scottish Borders, playing flute, whistles and clarinet.
I specialise in folk and traditional music, mainly playing Scottish, Irish, Manx, Northumbrian and Breton. I studied at Newcastle University on the Folk and Traditional Music degree and gained a 2.1 overall grade with a 1st in performance in 2013. As well as working for Live Music Now, teaching privately and teaching at the Sage Gateshead I perform in a few different bands.

Projects and Employment

Performer and workshop leader for Live Music Now
As a music leader on the Live Music Now scheme, I have extensive experience of performing and delivering workshops to those who may not have regular access to live music. Audiences include children with special educational needs, adults with learning disabilities, children in hospitals and elderly people living in sheltered accommodation. Due to the diverse range of audiences and performance settings my partner and I have to be very flexible and always ready to tailor our performance accordingly.

The Sage Gateshead, Adult learning, Ensemble leader for two
bands within the Folkworks Tuesday program.
I write, arrange and teach music to the Beginner and Intermediate Bands at Folkworks Tuesdays.These sessions are taught using a combination of learning by ear and reading notation.

Private Music Teacher.
I give one to one lessons to adults and children of any ability and consequently my teaching style is very flexible.

Performer and recording artist in various bands.

Freya Rae & Louis Bingham
A quote from our website:
Freya Rae & Louis Bingham's music is varied, colourful and enthralling. They are a young duo who play a mixture of traditional tunes and modern compositions, drawing particularly on strong influences from Ireland and Brittany. On stage their unique and engaging performance dynamic communicates to audiences their love and sensitivity for the tradition, whilst presenting their own innovative compositions with virtuosity
and creative flair. Multi-instrumentalists, Freya's whistles, flute and clarinet blend seamlessly with Louis' guitars, cittern and bouzouki. They have recently released their debut album Curlicue, a recording which has garnered significant critical acclaim.
"Beautifully arranged and played with an entirely convincing sensibility... this is exquisite musicianship' The Living Tradition

Birlinn Jiarg
Birlinn Jiarg was brought together by multi-instrumentalist Beccy Hurst to perform the traditional Manx music she grew up with as well as her own compositions. Having performed with various Manx bands and dance teams over the years, Beccy moved to England to study on the Folk Degree at Newcastle University.
At the centre of Birlinn Jiarg's sound is the combination of Beccy's whistle and concertina playing and the clarinet and flute of Freya Rae (Freya Rae and Louis Bingham, Tom Kitching Band). The unusual combination of low whistle and clarinet was what originally inspired the band's formation and sets Birlinn Jiarg's sound apart from more traditional line-ups. Having performed in a duo with Beccy for a few years, Scottish guitarist and bouzouki player Alasdair Paul ( Pons Aelius , Kimber/Paul) was a natural choice for Birlinn Jiarg. Completing the quartet's line-up is bodhránist Callum Younger (Pons Aelius, Trio FCT). Callum and Alasdair have
worked together on a variety of projects and their inventive and powerful accompaniment provides a great platform for Beccy's and Freya's melodic interplay.

Tom Kitching Band
I play flute and clarinet in Tom's band. We have completed two tours around England and are planning more in 2016.

Personal Description:
I am a passionate teacher born and raised in Spain. I think everyone should be able to develop his/her skills, and this is why I decided to be a teacher. I have been teaching since I started my degree, as I find it really rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher and Spanish native speaker. I love to teach since I started my degree, and I have been doing that since then. I have worked as a Spanish teacher at the University of Oviedo (Spain) and in a High School in Spain as well.

At the same time, I helped people who could not afford official classes to pass DELE exams with success.
For this reason, I adapt every lesson to the needs of my students.

No matter if you need Spanish for children, beginner, intermediate, advanced, day-to-day conversational Spanish, etc. I can help you.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a wide range of different materials to help my students to approach to Spanish, since there is not only one way to speak it. I also prepare complete courses depending on your needs, I work with small groups or one to one, and I provide all the materials with no extra cost.

Your level will be assessed free of charge on the first session, so we can start at the most suitable point.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, creative and highly experienced teacher of English language and literature. I retired In 2014 from the full-time secondary school teaching post I held for 23 years, at an independent girls' school in Lincolnshire. I taught throughout the school, at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and have a strong proven commitment to raising academic standards; my students have achieved consistently excellent GCSE and A Level grades. Although I have a particular passion for teaching literature, I am a rigorous teacher dedicated to raising standards of literacy through my teaching of English language, and to the educational and personal development of young people more widely, especially those in transition to higher education.

As well as teaching my academic subject, I was a sixth form personal tutor for 18 years, monitoring my students' academic progress, and guiding and mentoring those applying to university, assisting with UCAS applications and personal statements, or helping tutees plan for a gap year or for employment - a role which I found particularly fulfilling. I also have experience of teaching in further education and have been successful in teaching mature students from different cultural backgrounds.

For two years 2012-14 , I supervised sixth form students taking the AQA Extended Project Qualification. I greatly enjoy one - to-one tuition.

In a career spanning more than 40 years in all, I have built up extensive subject knowledge and teaching expertise, which I can adapt to students ranging from 11 years to adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my most recent post, which I held for 23 years until my recent retirement, I taught English Language and English Literature throughout the school: to pupils aged 11-14 at Key Stage 3, to pupils taking GCSE exams, and to sixth formers taking AS and A level English.
At GCSE and AS/A Level my pupils have obtained consistently excellent results. I have taught a very wide range of set texts for literature and have taught courses by different exam boards, such as Edexcel, and OCR, and the CIE IGCSE.

My teaching has often involved one-to-one sessions with pupils who need extra support and I have taught those whose attainment in the subject is modest, as well as higher achievers in English.

My teaching experience prior to this included teaching for a total of 7 years full and part-time in further education colleges, and I have also taught English as a foreign language for the British Council.

I have been tutoring privately since retiring from full time school teaching, and I currently tutor students ranging from 15 to 21, assisting with preparation for GCSE exams, A Levels, and at university level. I have been tutoring students following a range of different GCSE courses and examining boards, including Edexcel IGCSE, Cambridge IGCSE, and AQA GCSE courses, both language and literature qualifications, and also the Edexcel combined A Level Language and Literature. My tutoring role includes assisting my tutees with revision of a wide range of set texts, demonstrating my adaptability and expertise in quickly grasping what different exam techniques are required. My private tutees gained English language and literature grades that exceeded their school teachers' expectations in the summer 2015 round of GCSE exams, achieving grades ranging from C (D predicted) to A* (B predicted). In summer 2016, again, my private tutees achieved good grades at least one grade higher than predicted at school and have been able to continue to the next stage of their studies, including university entrance.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a natural continuation of my approach as a classroom teacher. I am passionate about my subject and prepare lessons thoroughly and imaginatively. I begin by making sure I am fully in the picture with regard to the specific course being followed and the exam criteria, and use the exam boards' websites to source relevant materials such as past papers and teaching resources.

I always have a clear lesson plan and realistic aim of what I wish to achieve in the time available. I like people and I am a friendly, outgoing person who will communicate successfully with a tutee; I enjoy the company of young people and am experienced in putting my tutees at their ease and building their confidence, which I believe is very important. I form productive relationships with those I teach and am good at listening to them and assessing their needs, and adjusting my teaching strategy accordingly.

As well as preparing thoroughly, I mark work meticulously and give very detailed and helpful feedback, both in writing and orally. I set relevant work to be completed for the next tutorial, and monitor progress closely; I stay in regular contact with my students and/or their parents via email and phone.

I am a hardworking and sympathetic tutor with the interests of my tutees at heart; my aim is to help them achieve their full potential and gain exam success.

i prefer to tutor in my own home where I am set up to receive my tutees in a quiet environment designed to maximise academic concentration. I do not tutor on Fridays or at weekends. I am usually able to tutor in school holidays, when I can offer longer, more intensive revision sessions.


Here are some recent 2016 testimonials from former tutees and their parents:

A Level

We turned to a private tutor because our daughter received a disappointing result in her first year of A Level English, but she knew she could do better and wanted to go to a first class University to study English. Her coursework had been excellent and most of her homework was good, too, but her exam technique was less secure. Isla definitely made a difference. She is a nurturing teacher who interacts with the student really well. Isla gave good advice about preparing for the exam paper and gave support in revision of the various texts, which boosted our daughter's confidence. Having achieved the necessary entry grades, our daughter is now at Newcastle University starting her degree course and wants to keep in touch with Isla."
Sally S, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, parent of A Level student

"As someone who wanted to pursue English at university, my grade C at AS Level was not good enough, so during Year 13 we found a private tutor to help me with my A Level English Language and Literature course. Isla put lots of time into helping me come out with an overall high grade B. She gave me wonderful advice with my creative coursework and really enhanced my knowledge of the two plays I was studying for my written exam. I am so grateful and will continue to keep in touch with Isla as I enter my degree course at Newcastle University for English Literature and Creative Writing."
Emily S, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, A Level tutee

GCSE
"Isla provided excellent support during Year 10 and 11 to our daughter in relation to her GCSE studies in both English Literature and Language. This complemented her learning at school and enabled focus on those areas where extra support or explanation was needed. Isla was very flexible in her approach, tailoring her lessons to our daughter's needs and providing additional support on the run up to the exams themselves. Although our daughter isn't continuing her English studies at A Level, Isla is going continue to provide support in relation to essay structure and comprehension in the subjects she has chosen to study. We would highly recommend her. "
Rachel M, Leicestershire, parent of GCSE pupil




Please note:
Some tutees opt for longer sessions fortnightly , rather than one hour weekly. My fees for longer sessions for GCSE and A Level students are £60 for an hour and a half, and £75 for a two hour tutorial, representing a small reduction on the hourly fee of £45. My fees include preparation for the lesson, marking of set written homework, the actual contact time, and follow-up emails,

Personal Description:
I am a very well qualified and very experienced teacher of both German and English as a Foreign Language. I have a Master's of Education, a BA (Hons) in German, a PGCE and an RSA Diploma in TEFL. Having lived and worked in Germany for over seven years, I also have near-native competence in German.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching German and EFL for more than 30 years from beginners to advanced level. I used to teach German to GCSE and A level at what used to be Plymouth College of Further Education as well as EFL from Cambridge KET to Cambridge Proficiency. In addition to that I have prepared many students for the IELTS exam and I have taught Business English and English for Academic Purposes too. I have worked in the UK, Germany, Spain and the United Arab Republic.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is essential to establish the needs of each individual student so that a tailor-made course can be designed for that particular student. That does not mean that my approach is inflexible, however - if one approach to teaching does not suit the individual learning needs of the student, I will endeavour to teach the student in a way that they are happy with and which will lead to the best possible results.
As a teacher of foreign languages I very much favour the communicative approach but I am also more than willing to teach grammar as this also plays an important role in language learning. As languages are meant for speaking I place a great deal of importance on oral work - particularly at GCSE and A level - but once again, the needs of each individual learner are paramount. For oral conversation, I am happy to teach using SKYPE.

Personal Description:
I'm 21 years old and a photography student. English was my favourite subject both at school and at A Level, and I achieved good grades at both stages respectively.
I love to read and firmly believe that the wider you have read when young, the more it will allow to grow as you age.

Teaching Experience:

Supporting young children (between the ages of 3 and 6) with basic literacy and numeracy skills; classroom assistant within a primary school for two summers; supporting 11-12 year olds with their reading as they settle into high school.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to sit and have a conversation with my students, encouraging you to discover the answers needed yourself rather than sit with an open book and just speak words at you.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in Engineering Sciences and MBA. I do lot of academic and research work and have been teaching for several years with excellent results. I teach upto University level and I have students who have secured a place in top 3 universities of UK.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. Most of my new students are because of good recommendation given by my old /existing students. Building the fundamentals is the key to performance. Students have finally achieved A star / A grade. Teaching is my hobby and passion.

I teach Maths and Science at A Level, GCSE, KS3, KS2 and prepare students for 13+, 11+

Tutoring Approach:

I usually first conduct an assessment session to understand the gap. Once the current status is known, lessons are build to bridge the gap. Keeping the student motivated is the key. My sessions are very interactive and actually students do the work on board which builds their confidence.

Regular tests, home work are part and parcel of the coaching.

I have prepared revision notes which students have found to be very valuable. It has executive summary for each chapter which helps revise quickly during the exams.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of University of Oxford, having obtained a degree in English Language and Literature there. While I have an excellent academic track-record, I have always balanced my work with a wide array of interests. A keen sportsman, I was captain of the College 1st XV rugby team at Oxford, all the while directing plays, involving myself in charity work, and publishing many of my own poems in newspapers. As such, I believe I could offer tutees a rounded, holistic approach to learning, encouraging them to develop their broader interests as well as being an intellectually rigorous tutor.

Teaching Experience:

In terms of one-on-one tuition, I have over 150 hours' experience tutoring English and History for GCSE and A-Level. A parent of a recent tutee commented about my teaching: "James is a very impressive man - articulate, personable and straightforward." Another parent, to whose child I tutored English, remarked: "James is professional, patient and hardworking. He is well prepared for each lesson and my son is always looking forward to the next one. I strongly recommend James to parent who is looking for a trustful English tutor."

I also have experience tutoring English in a clasroom environment. Each Wednesday I take a class for struggling KS3 students, providing them with the skills that they will need to succeed at GCSE level.

Additionally, every summer for the past ten years, my family have hosted students on English language courses in Oxford. I was encouraged to assist these students with their homework, as well as develop their conversational English skills.

Lastly, both of my parents are OFSTED-rated Outstanding English teachers with more than fifty years' teaching experience between them. This means I have a wealth of first-rate teaching resources upon which to draw, as well as invaluable advice on planning lessons effectively, engaging students, and meeting differing educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I sincerely believe that best results are achieved when students are permitted the freedom to formulate their own opinions and conceptions, before having those sensitively but rigorously challenged. I learned this most of all during my time at Oxford, and as a result my approach to teaching would certainly not be prescriptive or narrow. This also requires tailoring the delivery and style of lessons to the character of each student, identifying their interests and making the educational material fit in with these. As someone with a very broad range of extra-curricular interests (I am a keen sportsman, writer, musician, and actor), I am very well-placed to appeal to a broad range of students, and present material to students in an original, inventive, and exciting way.
