Personal Description:
I have a PhD and an MLitt from The University of Glasgow, and a BA (Hons) degree from University of Paisley.

I am an on-line and off-line personal tutor with much experience in several subject areas including English, English Language, English Literature, Media Studies, Film Studies, Theatre Studies, and General Writing Skills. I have taught a range of students off-line from pre-exam age (11+) to Standard Grade, Higher, and university level, and on-line for pre-exam level (12+), GCSE, AS level, A-Level, university level, postgraduate and the adult learners.

Teaching Experience:

A well as being an experienced on-line and off-line personal tutor, I have also had several other academic jobs including:

Lecturer at Forth Valley College

Seminar tutor at The University of Glasgow

Graduate Teaching Assistant at The University of Glasgow

Top-Up Tutor at The University of Glasgow

Step Up to University Lecturer at University of West of Scotland

REACH Tutor at University of Glasgow

Proof Reader at University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Note Taker at University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Study Support Tutor at University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Transcriber at University of the West of Scotland

Support Worker at University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Exam Scribe at University of Glasgow and Scottish Rural University College

Exam Invigilator at Scottish Rural University College

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning should be fun and in a relaxed atmosphere but at the same time academic and useful. My approach to teaching is to have the tutor and student both feel that they are getting a lot out of the experience and that the time is being well used. I will break down subjects into easily manageable blocks and make sure that my student understands the unit before moving on. I also like to vary my tutorials by having some in the form of lectures, some in the form of question and answers, some where I will give students feedback on homework they have done and suggestions to improve what they have done, etc.

I also find that on-line tuition is the best method and students can ask questions that they may not ask if they were face-to-face with someone, it is a much more relaxed approach but students get a lot out of it (and can save all the notes from lessons for use later on).

Personal Description:
I am currently a third year medical student from the University of Newcastle but I have also graduated in Human Sciences from the University of Durham back in 2007. During the holidays I live in London. I have a wealth of experience working with children and teenagers from being a Christmas grotto host at Harrods to volunteering at Great Ormond Street Hospital for over a year.

My work ethic when I was younger was not as disciplined as it is now and I am aware of the difficulties that students can face when it comes to learning new concepts and hope to help tutees overcome these barriers.

Having applied to grammar school, university and medical school I am aware of all the application processes and interviewing processes.

I am outgoing and to keep active I play hockey for my local club and my university college.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped younger family members to grasp ideas and offer new ways of learning if they were struggling. I have had job roles in the past training new employees up and feel this is a mode of teaching.

I would like to extend my higher knowledge to helping students achieve top grades in their GCSE's and A-levels

Within my current course we have peer to peer teaching which has proved to be a very effective learning tool.

Tutoring Approach:

Different individuals have different learning styles, I for one am more visual. I would try to get an understanding of how the tutee learns best, and encourage them to engage in activities that would help them. For instance, if they are visual learners then get them to draw things out.

Encouragement and patience is of great importance and listening to the needs of the individual.

My role as a tutor would be to guide and encourage the tutee to reach their educational and professional goals.

Personal Description:
I am a professional educator with a wealth of experience in a wide variety of teaching environments. I've taught in schools (Primary and Secondary) around Hampshire covering almost all the curriculum, been a private tutor for a wealthy family in the Middle East, and helped local students improve their GCSE and A-Level grades.

I trained in Physics and have a Masters degree in Physics with Space Science and Technology from the university of Leicester. I now teach Physics and Mathematics at a variety of levels in Gosport and offer local tuition.

Presently, my circumstances make it difficult to offer tuition, and can only accommodate students coming to my home in Gosport.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2009 and took up a post in a 11-18 state comprehensive. Here I taught Science at Key Stage 3 and specialised in Physics at Key Stages 4 and 5. After I moved to the south coast I spent 6 months supplying at various schools in Hampshire. This opened my eyes to the full range of skills a good educator should have. I honestly feel my teaching skills were vastly enriched by teaching in a variety of environments in many different subjects.
From March 2011 I was hired by a prestigious tutoring agency based in Oxford to work for a wealthy client and their two sons in the Middle East. This consisted of after-school tutoring 5 evenings a week in a variety of subjects.
Now back in the UK I teach in an Engineering Academy run to train Network Rail Apprentices. I tutor in the evenings from 11+ entrance exam students to those sitting their A2 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I truly believe that every child is born a genius, with the ability to grasp everything that is put in front of them. From that point on, society, parents, and peers all put barriers in our minds. It is my goal to see that these barriers are destroyed. Learning is done by the student rather than teaching done by the teacher. A teacher can teach a dog to whistle, it doesn't meant the dog will learn.

A tutor is merely a resource. Just like a book, or an expensive laptop. Achieving the optimal results requires a holistic approach to education. I tend to work heavily with educational psychology theory and pinpoint the exact pieces of the puzzle far beneath the surface that allow the bigger picture to be seen. I teach my tutees to look at examinations in a way they may have never seen them before, allowing them to reduce the anxiety and be truly confident in themselves.

The content of subject matter often comes second to learning technique. How people learn differs between individuals. There can never be one set way to solve a problem so I offer various routes and pin point techniques that can be beneficial.

Personal Description:
I am a full time professional online physics tutor and an excellent physics communicator. I have the ability, understanding and resources to get the best out of students for their GCSEs, A levels and undergraduate degrees. I am a fully qualified, DBS checked, physics teacher with nine years teaching and tuition experience across all ages and abilities. Working as an examiner for the major exam boards in the UK has given me a detailed understanding of examination requirements, I extend this insight to my students, giving them not only the required knowledge for their exams but also the very best exam technique. I have just been awarded a Ph.D. in Physics, this involved producing cutting edge research for future solar technology, this work helps me to inspire my students. I am passionate about my subject and I really enjoy my job as a tutor. So if you, or someone you know, wants to learn physics and get higher grades please get in touch.

I will provide:
Increased students grades (see testimonials)
Friendly, reliable and professional service
Inspiration and encouragement
Supporting homework and problems
Highly efficient and effective environment for learning
Excellent subject knowledge
Increased problem solving skills
Significant improvements to exam technique
An ability to get the best out of students
A level, GCSE and Undergraduate Physics tutorials
A level and GCSE Chemistry and Mathematics tutorials
Help with university entrance exams

Teaching Experience:

I am a professional Physics tutor with nine years teaching and tutoring experience. In 2005 I graduated from Leeds University with a BSc Physics, having achieved the second highest mark in the year.  I received a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education) from Nottingham University in 2007.  After which I completed an NQT followed by two years at the Brunts School in Mansfield, with particular success teaching GCSE and A-level Physics. 

In 2011 I started tutoring part time while studying for a Masters in Nanoscience at Nottingham University. I graduated in 2012 having achieved the highest mark in the history of the course (79.3%), while my tutees have made massive improvements.

I have obtained a PhD in Physics. This involved using X-ray based techniques to analyse molecules and nanostructures on surfaces. The primary goal was to investigate charge transfer between these nanostructures and various surfaces.  Charge transfer is very important for solar cells and organic LEDs and his research leads to fundamental understanding of the physics behind these technologies.  Part of this work involved attending MAX-Lab IV in Lund, Sweden and Soleil in Paris to which involved using a synchrotron, which is an X-ray producing particle accelerator.  I hope that this research will lead to developing new technologies for light flexible displays and low cost solar power generation.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work with the student to quickly find the problems they are having with physics, then rebuild their knowledge or correct their misconceptions, making the relevant physics clear and easy to understand. Challenging questions and assignments will be set to drive, encourage and push a student outside of tutorials. This also helps to carefully assess knowledge and give them a much clearer understanding. Working through problem solving, examination techniques and confidence building exercises, I can improve a students' performance in any exam. Ultimately driving students towards their best while making the learning process fun, enjoyable and inspirational.

How online tutorials work:
Tutorials online are conducted over Skype or FaceTime using Scribbler. This means students can see me and talk to me via a video call. Scribbler is an interactive white board used by both myself and my student, it is web based so only a flash enabled web browser is required (it doesn't work on an iPad). This allows students to work with me on problems, and keep their tutorial notes in one place for revision. I also used a wide range a range of animations and online resources, which are carefully selected to improve understanding.

Whatever you need:
So if you just need help with a few problems, a complete course in physics from scratch, or anything in-between, I can help, please get in touch.

Personal Description:
I moved to Warwickshire from Kent in 2013 and I have chosen to settle in Stratford-upon-Avon. I have worked with children in schools; as well as helping to run a Brownies unit. Unfortunately I had to leave the Brownies when I began counselling training. I find that the listening skills I have developed are valuable when teaching; and especially when meeting parents or carers to discuss the requirements for tuition. I enjoy baking and playing board games as pass-times. I am also currently working as a Local Organiser, placing French students with host families for a visit in summer 2016.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years experience of working in primary schools. My roles have included: teaching whole classes; supporting small groups of pupils with basic skills; and one-to-one phonics and spellings lessons.

I have been a private tutor since 2010. Parents and carers of children of all ages across the primary phase have employed me as a tutor. My experience includes preparing children for SATs and eleven plus tests, and entrance exams. Many of my tutees have had successful outcomes from these. I have excellent references, which highlight children's significant progress and increased confidence since working with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a calm and gentle approach, and I have a proven ability to make children feel at ease when working with me. I tailor tutoring to the individual child, taking into account their strengths and preferred learning styles. I use games where appropriate to reinforce concepts; and to make learning enjoyable. I praise children regularly to motivate them; and to recognise their achievements.

Personal Description:
Former business journalist, Sky News editor, international conference producer in Moscow, Russian-English interpreter and now teacher & private tutor. Russian and French degree from UCL with teacher training (Kingston University) experience in French, Spanish and Latin (ages 11-18)). I also specialise in numeracy and literacy, helping young children and adults gain an A-C grade in their GCSEs.
I love working with children (I have students as young as 7) and adults alike and have plenty of materials, worksheets and textbooks for languages as well as mathematics and English as a Foreign Language/TOEIC/Citizenship tests
(PS: I have a great talent for working with children or adults who find it difficult to concentrate and showing them how to not only learn but also REMEMBER :D)

Teaching Experience:

Many years as an English teacher to foreign children, students and Russian businessmen and two years in a secondary school teaching modern languages to children aged 11-18. I have a great record of working with children who have ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspberger's and other learning "difficulties" (I like to call them learning differences:-)) Due to my ability to get "difficult" children to enjoy their lessons by learning their way, I was asked by my school to work with Year 11 children in the school"s EBD unit one-on-one in order to ensure they get an A-C grade in their GCSE English and maths exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Although very serious and focused on results, I do understand that everyone has their own approach to learning and my best skill is in introducing a range of learning techniques and study skills (some of them are even fun ;-)) to the student that they can use across all subjects! I have a special talent for working with a different range of students, especially those who are very bright/intelligent but who have difficulty retaining/remembering information

Personal Description:
I am a 1st Class Honours graduate from UCLAN, Preston, having studied Dance Performance and Teaching. The course combined dance technique, physical training and a strong focus on facilitating and tutoring.
I gained a highly acclaimed PGCE Secondary teacher training qualificaton specialising in Performing Arts (dance and drama) at Liverpool Hope University and professionally lectured HND Dance at Mid Cheshire college.
I enjoy academic work and feel confident in my own abilities regarding writing skills, basic computer skills and organisational skills. I personally have worked on these attributes through all my A Level studies and during University (both under-graduate and post-graduate) to reach a stage where I am competent and comfortable enough to pass what I have learnt onto others. My A Level subjects included English Language, Psychology and Performing Arts.
I now teach Dance, Drama, Music and English at a London secondary school and am the whole school Literacy Lead as well as Head of Performing Arts (Music, Dance and Drama).
I am an approachable, empathetic and dedicated tutor that has knowledge of the current education system and styles first hand.

Teaching Experience:

To date, my experience varies from both formal educational settings to those in the community. I have experience with all ages and all abilities; including disadvantaged groups and disabled students.
Dance is my specialism so I often teach in Physical Education settings, combining techniques from both typical classroom management and also general facilitation.
I am continually working in the community to broaden my experience base and as a result have worked with all types of learners therefore building up a good amount of tools and skills that I apply to individual cases.
I assisted in the running and facilitating of Preston Youth Dance Company and, until moving to London, ran my own community classes as well as teach professionally at further and higher education levels.
In my professional environment I am subject to regular observations and monitoring to maintain my high practice.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is often a more physical 'learn by doing' approach. Visualising and trying each avenue out is what I find works best in order to understand what does and does not work. I take care in addressing the type of learner I deal with and prefer not to force or expect knowledge but encourage and develop it.
I believe that it is important to firstly understand each other as tutor and tutee and then agree on preferred structure and goals, both short and long term. I also firmly believe in praise where due and do not hesitate to create the correct relationship boundaries.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching for 12 years in a range of schools across Teesside. I will support children to achieve their best no matter what ability they are. I will work alongside and their current school to support what they find difficult. I use a range of strategies and resources to engage and enthuse my students so that they can achieve their potential. I provide a fun and friendly atmosphere in order for my students to achieve. Being a Primary Teacher I have taught all Primary subjects but my strengths are in Maths, English, ICT, Science and Music. Some of my parents said about me: "You have been such a positive influence on our daughter and she has loved having you as her teacher". "You are an exceptional tutor and I feel that the loss of your ability and personality will significantly reduce the fabric of the school". "Thank you for all that you have done for our son during Year 3. He has enjoyed everyday of school and I believe that is down to you".

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a range of schools across Teesside but have always upheld the same vision. My vision for education is one where every child is both different and special. Although each child may learn in different ways I believe that, if they are to learn to their full potential they need to be exposed to a well balanced, broad and meaningful curriculum. It is important that they are provided with a learning environment that not only facilitates their learning by different strategies but one in which the children want to learn and have fun. I believe that an atmosphere where the children are not afraid to make mistakes, where what they are learning is relevant and one in which they are treated fairly, irrespective of their social background, colour or gender, will help them to become independent learners. I believe that children have a right to their own opinions and must be encouraged to respect the opinions of others when differing from their own. They also have a right not to be bullied, ridiculed or intimidated.

Tutoring Approach:

I have tutored on a 1:1 basis during my time in school, helping one child get from L3 to L4 in maths in Year 6. My approach was to reinforce what the child needed and to always put their needs first. I would use anything that I felt appropriate that would engage and get the best out of my students. I am an energetic, hardworking person who is fully committed to raising standards. I provide a friendly and fun learning environment with excellent management skills whilst having high expectations from the children. I am not afraid to take risks that challenge the children and to introduce new methods in my teaching in order to get the best out of my students, myself and that make my lessons fun and exciting. The student is the priority in the lesson and I am prepared to make sure that they succeed in what they are trying to achieve no matter what stage the child is at.

Personal Description:
My name is Natalia. I was born and raised in Moscow. I am Russian native speaker, fluent in English. I graduated from Moscow Academy of High Commerce and worked there until I moved to England in 1996. Since then I have been living here and raising my two sons.
I was a student myself for over 10 years at Basingstoke College of Technology and completed various courses and obtained qualifications in England.
Currently, I am looking for new challenges in my life. Meanwhile, to further develop my career, I have decided to teach Russian to anyone interested improving their knowledge and fluency of the language.

Teaching Experience:

If your goal in Russian is to become fluent, I can help you to achieve that. My teaching approach will depend on each student's needs. I will tailor learning, content and tasks to individual student abilities. I can offer tutoring at all levels from beginner to advanced.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, I have no professional teaching qualification, I have been teaching the Russian language to my two sons for over 10 years. My eldest son received Grade A* at GCSE Russian two years ago and Grade A at A-level at college. I use a variety of language resources including Russian books, and the Oxford Russian language book with CDs.

Personal Description:
I have 30 years teaching experience both in the UK and overseas. I feel it's important to understand a students learning style and adjust lesson materials to suit that style whilst setting purposeful, realistic and attainable goals.

I enjoy teaching and deem it a privilege to have a share in helping others reach their aspirations.

Teaching Experience:

Between 1992 & 2010 I lived and taught in Hong Kong to a variety of students from Chinese medium of instruction (CMI), English medium of instruction (EMI) and International schools to help them develop the four English language skills. Assistance was given to help students progress towards their HKCEE (GCSE equivalent) and `A` levels, and in recent years the IB diploma, IGCSE's, and HKDSE.

Topics used in the lessons cover many of disciplines in the school curriculum, including, History, Geography, Economics, Biology, English Literature. Further guidance was given to help students prepare for exams, such as, Cambridge`s KET and PET; the SAT; and IELTS exams and common apps for HE.

In the past seven years I have been tutoring students in the UK to prepare them for the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams; teaching students at KS3, GCSE and A levels. Additionally, I am currently helping students with their dissertations for their chosen degrees, and proofreading BA, MA, and PHD papers prior to submission.

Furthermore, for the past two years, I have been involved in intervention teaching, which involves identifying learning styles and other factors that inhibit a student`s progress, and then devise strategies to engage the student in learning, to identify and then support their current learning needs.

I have a Trinity CERTTesol and a MA in English Language Teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a CLIL approach to teaching, which means I teach English using the content and language taken from the student`s curriculum. My experience also qualifies me to teach English literature, History, biology and geography to GCSE level.

I am committed to providing students with assistance to achieve the grades they need by patiently tutoring each student according to their learning style. I trust that my student-centred approach is effective in this area. My one-to-one tuition produces noticeable improvements in student confidence, attainment and ambition.

Personal Description:
I am a native English/Spanish speaker, an American and Spanish dual national, born and raised in Europe. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, going to the cinema or relaxing with a nice cup of coffee and a good book.

Teaching Experience:

I have dedicated the last 10 years of my career to foreign language teaching in the USA, Spain and the UK. I have taught in state and private schools with primary and secondary students as well as adults. I have also taught employees of a range of companies in the north of Spain.

Tutoring Approach:

Accustomed to learners of all ages and levels, I use the communicative method. I am a firm believer that foreign languages must be spoken and used from the beginning. My teaching focuses on all skills, speaking, listening, writing as well as the use of correct grammar. I adapt my teaching to the needs of the learner and can provide my own learning materials if necessary.

Personal Description:
I am currently a Nursing student in my 2nd year of study. I finished my A Levels in 2013 and spent two years working in a supermarket and Science Lab.
I play team sports when I am also in charge of charity work and a qualified first aider.

Teaching Experience:

I previously tutored science up to GCSE level while studying for my A Level examinations. Then after finishing school tutored many other core subjects at varying standards.
When coming to university I continued tutoring maths and basic study skills

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be individualised to the student and will take the time to adapt to their needs. I believe the best way to learn is to do and that everyone can learn when they feel confident.

Personal Description:
I am a native UK English speaker and fully qualified English as a Foreign Language Tutor with over 21 years experience, and have a university degree in Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 21 years English as a Foreign Language teaching experience. During this time I have taught both abroad and in the UK for universities, private language and summer schools, directly in companies, as well as carrying out home tutoring. I have taught General, Business, and Academic English to students of all ages (from children upwards of 3 years old) and levels, and a wide range of nationalities and backgrounds. I also tutor students in exam preparation, including GCSE's, A levels, and IELTS and a range of Cambridge Exams. Additionally, I coach university students with individual presentations and project/thesis writing. My teaching range also includes Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are always carefully tailored to match the individual needs of each and every student, and as such my first lesson always includes a comprehensive needs analysis session with the aim of projecting an effective learning plan for future lessons so that individual student needs and targets can be met as precisely and speedily as possible. At the same time, I always create a relaxed and friendly learning environment where every student feels perfectly at ease, thus allowing them to optimise their learning experience.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Jonathan and I recently graduated from the University of Exeter studying Business and Management. I speak 4 languages, am passionate about maths and business, and have extensive experience in 1 on 1 tutoring!

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of tutoring experience and currently have a number of clients whom I teach Maths (Primary - GCSE) or German (Secondary - A-Level). Furthermore, I help run weekly GCSE revision sessions at a local school.

I have also run sessions for adult learners wanting to improve their German skills. In these sessions - which were often over skype - I was able to knowledge of the German language and culture to prepare tutees for upcoming exams, job interviews, or travels.

My experience, my academic background, and my teaching style make me an ideal tutor for anyone who wants to excel!

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring focuses on two main areas. Firstly, I aim to build up confidence. From experience, many students have the capacity to excel, but low confidence in often over-crowded or intimidating classroom environment limits their learning potential. That is why my aim is to identify the tutee's strengths and prove to them that they already know a lot more than they think!
Secondly, I identify the key areas of improvement and help develop these in structured lessons. Giving tutees the possibility to ask questions in an informal environment and getting students to explain concepts back to the tutor are both great methods to develop the areas of improvement.

My tailored sessions help find your strengths, improve your weaknesses, and ultimately succeed!
