Personal Description:
I have completed PhD in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Manchester. I offer assistance to degree students in assignments and dissertations. I also offer home tuitions for GCSE and A level students. Currently I am teaching at the University of Manchester to engineering students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught as Lecturer at under-grad level in the department of mechanical engineering, UET Lahore for almost three years. In January 2007, I joined the department, as Lab Engineer and then promoted to the position of Lecturer after completing Master's degree in 2009. The university and the department claim top position in national ranking and also enjoy the honour of being the biggest and oldest ones in the country. My career of about two years here was full of struggle and effort for excellence in teaching and research.
In addition to that I have have given tuitions as Home Tutor to GCSE and O/A level individuals and small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I always have the highest expectations of pupils and always have had, even when it was fashionable for learning to be more "child centred"; this is an approach I have found to pay rich dividends in terms of a pupil's academic and personal development. I have always managed to maintain friendly and relaxed environment tailored exactly to what the students requires. Above all I can offer general education and career advice when it matters the most and have observed that my students usually make fast progress towards their goals and good outputs.

Personal Description:
I'm a ex-mathematical physicist from Cambridge turned film director, and also freelance as a data-scientist. I have two funded feature films in development and have made music videos and adverts. I started tutoring when I switched careers because the film industry is unstable, especially as a freelancer. I keep up the tutoring now because I enjoy it and look for assignments I think are interesting and where I can really make a difference.

I am passionate about the subjects I tutor in and education in general. Education forms the foundation for freeing us from bigotry and ignorance, makes us better people and permits us to live richer, better lives. Knowledge is liberating and my subjects especially open many doors. They are not easy and require a willingness to work hard, but I strongly believe that anyone can get to grips with them if given the correct guidance. Most often the problem is not the student but a poor teacher, unresolved conceptual difficulties or lack of motivation. I want to fix these issues for you.

I'd say my approach to education is rigorous, highly intellectual and what one might term renaissance in approach. I'm interested in all aspects of education, and how our disparate academic disciplines connect which is somewhat antithetical to the modern approach to education but just the sort of thing one needs to get into Oxbridge and the like.

Why is tutoring important to me? Firstly, I feel it is my responsibility to pass on the knowledge and skills I have attained; secondly, I find it satisfying to help others learn and achieve what they did not think possible, regardless of their ability; and finally, I think one of the best ways to assess your own understanding of a subject is to teach it; we learn the most about our areas of expertise when we try convey their concepts and methods to an audience.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many (over 100) students privately over the past six years, improving their results in all cases where the students have followed my advice and worked hard. I'm only interested in teaching people who are prepared to do this work and better themselves, especially if its for something like the 11+/common entrance.

Beside the subjects listed in my profile, I will also teach 11+/common entrance, coding/game design, statistics and probability, film-making, creative writing, government and politics, economics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and I persevere. I am happy to tutor people across all ranges of ability but I expect you to work hard and follow my advice.

My tutoring includes:

- encouragement of free and critical thinking
- varying teaching methods depending on what the student is most receptive to including: problem based learning, discourse, traditional exercises, experiments, lectures
- exam preparation
- confidence building
- resolution of conceptual difficulties
- helping with homework
- homework marking
- undergraduate and postgraduate application advice
- coaching for Oxbridge entrance including the STEP papers
- interview advice at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
- email contact throughout the week to resolve your problems as an when they arise
- group tuition

Please note (a) while I am based in Hackney, I will cover all areas of London; (b) I can offer reductions for group sessions.

Personal Description:
I am a highly trained, experienced, self motivated and flexible individual with excellent organisational/interpersonal and communication skills, able to operate at all levels, with students from all backgrounds and nationalities.
I began my Photographic career over twenty years ago, then slowly slipped into Film making as a natural progression.
I have shot photographic projects and films all over the world, and have been an ambassador representing several schools, colleges and universities whilst involved in this work.

Teaching Experience:

I have over twenty years of Photography and Film making experience, working abroad to shoot several short films in Prague, Paris, Africa and China. I have worked with both African and Chinese students in their countries, shooting a variety of Photographic and Film projects, having spent three months, and one month in these respective countries.

I have over twenty years of teaching/training experience in various establishments, Schools, Colleges, Universities, and with various council's throughout the Midlands. I have over twenty years of experience of dealing with a wide variety of students , from various backgrounds. I have worked with students of all ages, from primary school, to adult students in their eighties!
I have worked with people from mental health units, drug rehabilitation centres, and the probation services, using the creative media and arts as a form of therapy to bring about positive change.

Over twenty years of writing and delivering bespoke re-engagement training courses in a wide variety of areas (including photography, film making, digital imaging, film and media studies, literacy, numeracy, preparation for work training, CV writing, personal motivation and decision making), to disenfranchised, marginalised students.

Excellent computer/I.T. skills using a wide range of high end/professional software for video editing, image manipulation and audio visual presentations/performances.
Extensive experience of curriculum development, development of schemes of work, child protection policies, professional practices, and internal verification of work using assessment criteria from a multitude of awarding bodies.
I have been associated with UK Tutors since 2005.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is a very relaxed, informal one, giving the student ample opportunity to attempt things for themselves, and to allow them to flex their own creative and mental muscles with support and guidance where necessary.
Students are allowed to be themselves, feel relaxed , comfortable, to be able to make mistakes, without the pressure of being surrounded by or judged by their peers.
I often use projects to reinforce creative ideas or techniques, so that students begin to create their own portfolio's of their photographic work or video clips that they can use to create a show reel.

Personal Description:
I am a young professional with a strong background in volunteer mentoring with children and young people, as well as a solid academic resume. I was home educated (tutorial-based) through primary and secondary school, and went on to study English Literature and History at the University of Edinburgh.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working since June 2011 at Mackenzie School of English, teaching English as a second language to foreign high school students.

Also, I have been a private tutor since February 2011, working with a range of ages and levels in both English Literature and History.

As well as my professional experience, I have been involved in youth work, summer camps, and one-to-one mentoring of young people for the past eight years or so. Working at summer camps has given me experience in both group work - teaching and leading discussions - as well as in one-to-one mentoring. Currently I am involved in a weekly youth club here in Leith, working with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from the local community.

Tutoring Approach:

Coming from a rather unconventional educational background, I would bring with me a deep passion for the need to create a tailored and bespoke educational experience for each individual young person. I know how incredible my own learning experience has been, instilling within me a value and love of learning that will remain with me my whole life. I would approach tutoring with this same passion. Learning excites and challenges me, and I believe that it has become limited in the classroom at times. When a young person can see someone else passionate and excited about an aspect of knowledge and understanding, the ramifications are huge. Not only does tutoring provide an avenue for this one-to-one mentoring, but I believe it is also the most powerful method of teaching. It is in that bond of mutual regard and respect that true learning occurs. These passions and beliefs are foundational to my approach of tutoring and mentoring.

I have 2 years of teaching experience in the UK, teaching 5 students to date. I have already taught AQA Physics, OCR Biology and am currently teaching two students doing AQA Physics, Maths and OCR Biology.

Recent success: One of my tutees came to me with 3 U's in Physics, Maths & Bio.
Result this Jan 12: Maths-B,
Biology- B
Physics-B

Tutoring Approach:

One thing that I truly believe is about delivering the candidate with coherent information. I don't want to fetch my student way too much extra irrelevant stuffs; well until and unless he/she asks for it. I want to make the most out of limited resources. My focus is to basically make life easier by finding out the solutions and presenting them in any comprehensive way that they find it good for themselves. If it is visual animation they want, I give it to them!

Personal Description:
I am an ιlite tutor with a double first class MA (Cantab) from the University of Cambridge, specialising in teaching language to learners of all ages. This includes English, Drama, Spanish, Arabic, French and Linguistics.

At a glance:

- Five years' tuition experience.

- First Class degree from University of Cambridge, MA (Cantab).

- Winner of the Bailey Prize and the Dajani Prize for my dissertation and overall degree at Queens' College, Cambridge.

- Winner of the Lerverhulme Trust and D'Oyly Carte Scholarships at Guildhall School; finalist in the National Theatre's Michael Bryant Verse Speaking Award, and the BBC Carlton Hobbs Radio Award.

- Distinction in Advanced Extension Awards in both Spanish and French

Teaching Experience:

I teach English literature and linguistics to all levels, and English language skills both to native speakers and second language learners wishing to finesse their writing and speaking to a level of professional excellence.

I have had great success teaching Spanish, Arabic and French as foreign languages, including to students who had previously struggled with the subjects. I have a 100% success rate in preparing applicants for Oxford and Cambridge.

As a professional actor working on stage and screen, with an MA from the internationally-renowned Guildhall School of Music and Drama, I also enjoy teaching drama and offer mentoring to drama school applicants.

Aside from five years' varied tuition experience (with impeccable references), I have also taught workshops on drama, Shakespeare and improvised comedy in universities and high schools in Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland and the United States

Tutoring Approach:

Despite high demand for my services, I insist on operating a select client list. This enables me to devote the utmost time and care to what I am passionate about: bringing out the best in those I teach.

My method of working is tailored personally and specifically to each individual tutee, their way of learning, and their goals. I pride myself on the relationships I have with my students, who have ranged from adults learning new languages for personal reasons, to primary school children in need of general help with schoolwork. Only by being friendly and engaging but also challenging and determined can I help them fulfil their potential.

Personal Description:
I have a First Class Honours degree in Sociology from the University of Leeds. I'm fluent in Welsh and am offering tutoring in Welsh and English for Sociology up to and including degree level, and for Economics up to and including A level. I currently work as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor, mostly for students and academics, helping them express their ideas clearly and coherently in their work.

Teaching Experience:

In my role as proofreader, I am sometimes approached for advice on essay writing, often by people who have never been properly taught this key skill. Throughout my educational career, I have found that without this skill, an individual's progress can be severely restricted.
In the past I have also successfully tutored Sociology at AS level and was very pleased to see my tutees' grades improve when resitting exams. I feel that at least part of this success was due to the rapport we had built up from an early stage.
I am currently teaching an adult Welsh learner via Skype, which offers it's own challenges and opportunities.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the individual needs and circumstances of the tutee. We can work on homework, building on the feedback from their school teacher or university lecturer, as well as setting achievable targets to aim for. For this to work, it's vital for the tutee to feel comfortable and confident in the subject, and to find it interesting and relevant. There's nothing worse than reducing what can be a fascinating exploration into how the world works into a dry, and seemingly pointless exercise.

Regarding my tutoring rates: I prefer to work from home, but if that doesn't suit you then I can come to you. In such cases, I also ask for travel expenses to be paid as well. I do not have a car, so where possible this will be a bus or two.

I am also more than happy to meet in a public place (for adult tutees), or for the parents or guardian of the tutee to sit in on the lesson.

Personal Description:
I recently returned to the UK after a number of years living and teaching in China, and now I wish to use the experience i have gained over the years to help students who need to learn English in the UK.
When i am not working i enjoy travelling and playing sport. In addition to living in China, i have also lived in New Zealand and Australia and travelled extensively in Europe.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years. My experience has been gained predominantly in China, though i have taught at a college in the UK. I have taught a variety of nationalities and also all ages and levels. I possess both the CELTA and DELTA teaching practice qualifications. I was also an IELTS speaking and writing test examiner for two years and have passed a Cambridge certified online course in the teaching of IELTS.

Tutoring Approach:

Having lived and worked in China for many years, i am aware of the difficulty of learning a foreign language. However,i believe that with the right attitude, approach and guidance it is possible to achieve your study goals in any language.
I believe in establishing realistic and quantifiable goals when beginning tutoring for progress to be measured against. I also believe that work done in a student's own time is as important as work done in a formal classroom setting. Regular review of what has been studied is also vital.

View Luke's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I hold a full-scholarship academic PhD in English Drama and an MFA with Distinction in Shakespeare from the University of Exeter, as well as a first Class BA in Theatre from the University of British Columbia. I have published scholarly articles. Additionally, I have received relevant certifications in Teaching English as a Second Language and in radio presenting (and a slightly less relevant one in stage combat!).

I am a professional actor with experience in all media including the West End, and am a founding member of Hotspur Theatre Company. Additionally, I have professional experience as a playwright, theatre director, and teacher.

Teaching Experience:

From nursery school students to 16-18-year-olds, and undergraduates at the Universities of Exeter, Bath Spa, and Cumbria to postgraduates at the LAMDA drama school, I have taught students at almost every level. I have also coached adult professionals.

My key tutoring subjects are English, Drama, Shakespeare, English as a Foreign Language, Elocution, Voice and Speech, Public Speaking, Acting, and Research and Academic Writing. I look forward to helping you to achieve your best results!

Tutoring Approach:

All students are different, and therefore I vary my approach student-to-student. That said, my core approach includes my experience in drama, and I will often use play scripts as texts to analyse, or for language-building exercises and conversational scenarios. I have a substantial research and essay-writing background as well, so can offer useful insights into students' written work.

Personal Description:
I consider myself an enthusiastic and creative primary school and music teacher, full of innovative ideas and interdisciplinary approaches to education of children and adults . My previous academic and professional experiences have reinforced my teaching, planning, organising and communicating skills, providing me with passion and eagerness to support and motivate students to learn Greek, my mother tongue, or music, my passion.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a primary school teacher for about 2 years in Greek Primary schools and as a music teacher for about one year and a half in a Greek nursery school as well as in a Conservatoire of Music. I have also an extended experience in private tutoring (4 years), teaching English, Greek and Piano to primary school children and adults. I have also been teaching Greek to a bilingual child.

Tutoring Approach:

I love to combine language with music and arts and provide children and adults with exciting and innovative lessons, full of knowledge and fun. I choose an interdisciplinary approach of a lesson which contains elements of many different subjects. Every single lesson is organised and adapted to what my student needs and wants.

View Maria's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
