Personal Description:
With me as your tutor, not only do you receive a first-class education in a supportive environment, but you also get the benefit of my extensive experience and ongoing research.

Last year, I completed my funded PhD on Samuel Beckett and Theodor W. Adorno at Royal Holloway, University of London. I completed my Masters study in Literature and Philosophy in September 2012, graduating with Distinction, and received a First Class Honours BA in English from Royal Holloway in 2010. Between my Undergraduate and Masters study I worked for a year as an Editorial Assistant in the Health Sciences division of Hachette UK.

I also offer a proofreading service and online tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Visiting Lecturer at Royal Holloway since September 2014 and have taught on the courses 'Modernist Literature'; 'Reorienting the Novel'; 'Inventing the Novel'; 'Fundamental Questions in Philosophy'; and 'Special Author: Samuel Beckett'. I have received excellent student feedback, with over 95% of my students agreeing that the seminars significantly furthered their knowledge. A number of the students last year identified seminars as the aspect of the course that helped them increase their knowledge and skills, with comments including 'engaging and approachable' and 'very helpful essay feedback'.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student requires entirely different strategies for the optimum level of learning. It is important for them to be taught in a positive and open environment, where they are encouraged not only to develop academically, but also to enjoy the experience of learning.

Whilst I recognise the need to cram for exams in our education system, I still believe that excellent grades can be achieved without compromising original thought and extra-curricular study.

I also offer proof-reading services if you do not require face to face tuition but only some help on a particular piece of work.

Personal Description:
Hello - thanks for looking at my tutoring page. I am an experienced teacher, having worked in a range of schools over the last 7 years. I am an active musician, composing music as well as performing - both as a singer and an organist. I have broad musical interests - I'm just at home listening to John Grant as I am to Rachmaninov. I'm friendly and approachable, and keen to help all people to meet their full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a teacher since graduating from the University of Oxford in 2007. I completed my PGCE Teacher Training in 2008, working in a range of contrasting environments. I spent the first two years of my teaching career at a school in Gloucestershire, where I was responsible for developing teaching resources at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. I currently head up the Music Department in a high-achieving school in Wimbledon. I am very experienced teaching the Edexcel and AQA GCSE, AS and A2 Music courses, but am also a Senior Examiner for AQA in their A Level papers. I have previous experience of teaching History to A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

More than anything, I think that it is important to establish your goals for our tutorials at the start. This ensures that we can work together to get the results you want. I am able to travel (within reason) to your house via public transport/car. I have lots of helpful resources that I have produced and published which will greatly aid your learning and help you to increase your understanding. I am able to tutor via Skype or Facetime if this is more convenient to you. I run Sibelius at home. I am friendly, approachable and professional with a strong knowledge of music and history. I am able to help with University preparation should this be of interest and work closely with pupils in their applications for Music College/Oxbridge.

Personal Description:
My name is Jessica and I am a 27 year old tutor from Brixton, South London. I have grown up with a great education from both schooling and tutors, and aim to keep up this high standard in my teaching. My secondary school, Heathfield Private Girls in Pinner, was a great starter for me and showed me a wide variety of effective teaching methods in all areas of education. When specialising at Woodhouse College in English, Drama, Biology and French I had some of the most inspiring and creative teachers who pushed me to a level I did not know I could achieve. As a result I had a firm foundation for my English and Drama Bachelor of the Arts at the University of Birmingham which made the course all the more enjoyable. I will be studying my Masters in October at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Teaching Experience:

My most recent pupil was retaking his A-Level drama exam during his gap year. By working together for 6 week, we managed to bring his grade up from a U to a B, allowing him the chance of a university placement. Other pupils have ranged in age and ability from first years of GCSE to children for homework help. My mother is and has always been a French teacher, so from a young age I was helping to look after and share responsibility for her classes. This included an after-school French club for children from the age of 4 to 11 years called Jeux D'Enfants and also helping organise and plan some private lessons. At College and University I tutored the younger siblings of my close friends for their 11+ and GCSE and also held weekly Shakespeare study groups for my course. I have recently decided to become a teaching assistant for a secondary school in North London and am excited to tutor once more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TESTIMONIALS
I was more than fortunate to come across Jessica's profile back in April 2012.

From the moment I sent her my initial email, there was both an element of professionalism and caring. The amount of effort and detail she put into my 12 lesson's between April and late May was second to none.
In terms of what Jess brought to my lesson's (We looked at two play's for my written exam. Lysistrata and A Comedy of Errors) she had a lot of material on the latter having studied it at school. From character profiles to stage description's she had an extensive amount of notes, chart and diagrams as well as an understanding of the play and exam. As for lysistratta, this was a play she had never read, by my first lessons she had not only read it but had started to plan out potential lesson planners, as the weeks went by the material and effort she put into each lesson continue. During lesson's I found that she had a very cool and relaxed attitude. She's still young and has an understanding of not only the subject but also how a-levels can effect students and how to best deal with this pressure.

In the end however it's all about the result I suppose. In my last exam (Unit 4 theatre studies) I got under 20% the year before. My finale grade fell from B to D. After my lesson's with Jessica I got 78% and my grade jump back up to B. Added to my A and B in my two other subject I was accepted to the university of Southampton, something I couldn't have imagine a year prior.

Jessica had a huge part to play in this and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jessica has been tutoring my 14 year old son in English for the last academic term. She is an enthusiastic teacher who has really helped engage him in the subject. Her knowledge of drama is a real bonus.

My son's grades have improved noticeably this term and he is much more confident in his lessons at school. I would thoroughly recommend her.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that no one pupil is the same, so it is impossible to define a teaching method as it must be adapted to the needs of the student. From experience of being tutored myself, I know how frustrating it can be to be taught in a way that doesn't suit your thinking, so with each pupil I ask them how they learn and absorb information best. As a result I spend the first lesson going over what the pupil does not understand, and why, thus gaining an comprehension of how to explain it better. I also like to push the student to think beyond their boundaries, or the boundaries necessary to simply get the grade, as this is how exceptional thinking and a sense of achievement come about.

Personal Description:
A Master of Mathematics graduate from UEA in Norwich, with a year studying in Melbourne Australia. I have great experience tutoring with various age groups and personalities.

I have enjoyed tutoring part time and full time for the past few years whilst learning a Postgraduate Diploma course since University. I was subsequently contracted in by a local college to provide individual and group tutoring sessions to underachieving students, during and after school.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring GCSE maths in Year 13, providing a very structured learning by my school. The students engaged well and it helped to have people of a similar age that the students could relate to, enabling a more relaxed learning atmosphere. I also informally helped peers of various levels whilst at university, maths students but also engineering and foundation levels. When my services were required in a particular area, then they asked for help on short notice.

On top of this I've been tutoring over the past 4 years, usually working 7 days a week from the new year onward. Peak hours ranged in excess of 40hrs of tutoring for several months. I've therefore assessed the likely weaknesses of a student and have already provided and perfected methods of explanation.

Tutoring Approach:

Can look at casual tutoring of areas of difficulty, or can do more structured learning of a curriculum, either intense learning or weekly troubleshooting. I've established good quality material for any level. Plenty of students just require good material and direction for their efforts.

The first meeting will be free with the aim of getting to know one another and the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, and at what pace the student requires. At which point a structured plan of action can be drawn up. In some cases the tutee may lack the confidence in areas, but can in fact do what's required. Even a casual troubleshooting session every now and then can set their worries at rest.

Should extracurricular material be required or wanted then I'll be happy to provide. This material might not be hard for the tutee, but will help link in various areas of mathematics and will require a little thought about the patterns seen.

My current timetable (free to book anytime other than between the times below, already accounted for travel time):
Mondays: booked 5pm onward
Tuesdays: booked 6pm - 8pm
Wednesdays: booked 3.30pm onward
Thurdsays: booked 5.30pm onward

Personal Description:
I am a friendly English male tutor, aged 60, retired from a career in IT, but with a life-long interest in the English language and its quirks. My interest in teaching languages developed from my own experience of learning Spanish, in particular practising with Spanish people and finding myself in turn explaining to them how English works ... !

Teaching Experience:

My experience of English teaching ranges from teaching young children with almost no English, to teaching adults with a very good level of English (but maybe not a good accent!) I also previously worked as an ESOL Adult Education tutor for Northampton Council.

My experience of teaching Spanish includes teaching friends and colleagues on a more ad-hoc basis, in addition to giving private tuition for small groups or individuals, usually beginners. My level of Spanish is sufficient to enable me to teach beginners, and my experience of teaching English together with the insights gained from my own Spanish classes together with my enthusiasm for the language enable me to teach in an interesting and effective way.

Tutoring Approach:

The initial level of skill and the target knowledge will vary for each person and it is vital to understand this as the first stage. Teaching needs to then be tailored to provide a gradual progression towards the targets. Classes must provide a variety of challenging elements, mixed always with a bit of fun or something "offbeat". What drives me is the enthusiasm to convey and explain my own fascination with language, whether English or Spanish.

Personal Description:
After teaching in South Korea for four years I have taught all ages and all abilities. I think that everyone is different so when teaching a student their strengths and weaknesses should be discovered before being worked on.

I am currently finishing up working in Saudi Arabia before moving back to England full time.

I have an MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL and am working on another in ELT (English Language Teaching).

Teaching Experience:

* I have four years teaching experience in South Korea where I thought all ages from 2 years to adult. I have some experience teaching private classes, small groups as well as large classes. I have taught in camps and in classrooms. I am an all round teacher and want to keep learning more skills.
* I have taught online to Taiwanese students.
* I am finishing 1 1/2 years in Saudi Arabia, teaching in a university and a technical college.
* Teaching South East Asian students privately for short periods of time.

Tutoring Approach:

I will take a session getting to know you and what you want out of our sessions and your current level. From there we will get straight down to learning. I think a friendly yet hardworking approach is best, with a little homework so that you can keep practicing your English at home. I am very interested in teaching English so if you have any questions I would love to answer them!

Personal Description:
I have recently semi-retired back to Oxford after two careers: the first in journalism and the second as a teacher and minor academic, having spent the past four years lecturing in English literature at university level. I am, however, a traditionally trained teacher, having qualified at the University of Oxford 20 years ago with the full secondary PGCE in English, with history as my second subject. I can teach all aspects of English and all periods of literature from GCSE level upwards, but undergraduate students may want to know that my academic specialism is in 19th century literature, and my doctoral research was on Dickens. Alongside my tutoring work, I continue to do examining, coursework moderation and consultancy work for the leading exam board in the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' experience, mainly teaching all three varieties of A level English to the specifications of three different awarding bodies, at various colleges of further education. I also have considerable experience of GCSE English (mainly post-16 retakes, also in the FE context) and have taught within a local authority adult education service, as well as at university. I also have several years' prior experience of seeing one-to-one students privately. I have been an examiner for A level English literature since 2000, a coursework moderator for the same since 2009, and am currently a senior examiner for A level English language and literature.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I think I am friendly and approachable, adopting an informal style of session, though I do insist on academic rigour where it is called for, and I have the expertise to back it up. I believe in a collaborative approach, with the full and ongoing involvement of parents, particularly of younger students, and would also expect to liaise by e-mail with the student's English teacher at school. I see the tutor's role as supporting mainstream education, not as something separate from it. I am aways well prepared, and wil go the extra mile by researching material which students have to cover, as well as reading and where appropriate marking students' work, in my own time.

Personal Description:
Human Resource and Human Resource Management are the area of my expertise and this is something I am very passionate about. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this subject and I enjoy working with students at college and university level. I also teach business studies and its relationship to HRM at degree level.

Not all sessions are paid for there is a fair about of goodwill on my part to continue to be your anchor during your challenging moments in the lecture room. Therefore you are free to email and call me as much as you wish to discuss any aspects of you work

I am happy to continue to communicate with you until such time you decide what you wish to do.

 International Communications
 International Culture Studies
 International Relations
 International Economy
 Social Sciences Research Methods
 Social Science Studies
 Youth and Social Work

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different when it comes to learning. Some students enjoy 1 to 1 and some students love group learning. My approach is to create an individual style for each student and work with you to meet your learning needs.

The key to any success is READING and then having the opportunity to discuss the subject in detail to analyse the the debate.

In addition to this, it is important to develop skills and understanding of your subject area so that you are aware of the key areas of policy and theory and how theory is applied to policy in the real world.

Personal Description:
I am a third year student at Imperial College London, studying towards a Mathematics degree. I'm passionate about Maths and would love to share my interest with anyone. I've participated in a few external Math competitions and on track towards a 1st class honours for my degree.

Teaching Experience:

I've volunteered to teach Math at a refugee shelter.

Most of the time, I've helped out my friends who struggled with Maths throughout their high school and college.

Tutoring Approach:

I would consider myself to be more of a study buddy who would help out on the difficult questions and changing my pace of teaching tailored towards one's strength. In terms of Mathematics, I put emphasis on the derivation and understanding of the mathematical concept. Having gone through a mathematics degree, I can't stress enough on the importance to learn from first principle and learning the underlying assumptions. Instead of tackling multiple similar type questions, I wish to instill problem solving techniques that covers a wider range of questions.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Sian and I am 21 years old. I have a level 4 combined HNC of Childhood, Youth and Community Studies with Health, Community and Social Care Studies at Winchester University and I am currently studying Youth Work and Community Development at Hull University. I have a special interest in working with children and would like to work with youth offenders in the future teaching them basic education and life skills.

I am determined, dependable, and creative, I have taught in many styles including using music, rhymes and other creative techniques to learning and memorising but also your every day study skills.

I specialise in Drama, Performing Arts and Maths. I have tutored GCSE Maths for six years now and have an AS Level in Mathematics. I also have vast experience in Performing Arts and have been in several performances throughout school and college years including roles such as the Inspector from 'An Inspector Calls', The Good Witch from 'The Wizard Of Oz' and Alice from 'The Button Box' along with many roles in original plays.

I have many awards for my commitment to learning, progress achievements, performances and other certificates such as Community Action Projects, First Aid, Public Speaking and Amazing contribution to Drama, along with an A* in an Extended Project Qualification based on Social Services Action.

I am willing to travel, my profile currently states 5 miles but if you have good access to public transport I am willing to go the extra mile for your learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have just left my position as a Higher Education Ambassador and a Care Ambassador for Hampshire County Council and have worked with children and young adults for over 6 years; including mentoring, tutoring and supporting them throughout education and daily life. I have also worked with young people with different learning needs, including those with physical or learning difficulties. Part of my previous work required me to support children in different learning environments, such as university, in outdoor environments during bushcraft sessions, and also individually during sessions or free time to help them decide what path was best for them.

I have tutored GCSE students in Maths for 6 years and gained an award from Hampshire County Council and my school/college for my work supporting other students especially during their exams and assessments.

During my secondary school years I was a regular teachers assistant taking time out of my free periods to offer other students support during Maths Lessons, and preparing lessons for a small groups of students which I was given to teach after school and marking papers. I was taught by my own head teacher how to prepare lessons and teach them, making them fun and enjoyable but also targeting areas which needed the most improvement.

I have been an active member of the homework clubs at all of my schools and colleges. I have also been a student mentor and student union representative offering to support to other students as well as friends and family who needed extra support especially in Maths and Drama.

I have plenty of work experience in schools catering to all ages, including some nursery and college work experience supporting children and adults of all ages to expand their knowledge and develop no matter the age.

I have also volunteered with teenagers, and young people helping then to develop life skills, learn basic academic skills and develop their knowledge including one activity where I supported a group to do a community action project and help the local community teaching them communication and public speaking skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am kind and caring yet firm so I will base learning around the tutee and the support they need. I will help the young person by not only teaching them but helping them to develop the skills they will need in the future to be able to teach themselves and develop their knowledge.
I would like the tutee to feel comfortable during a session and I take a friendly approach, I do not intend to gain a friendship with the tutee but I find a fair, balanced and equal relationship is best for both the tutor and the tutee and for the best development and progress.
I will sit with the tutee and support them with a learning plan, targeting what areas they need most work with small tests at the end of a topic in order to make sure that they have fully grasped the knowledge, if they have not then I will take time to go over this again. I develop my teaching technique to each learner, if one is better with sheets and learning by the book I shall help them that way, if one learns with physical examples then I shall make sure that each learner is equipped with all they need to gain the relevant knowledge.

I feel that I would be a great tutor and I can connect with children for three reasons:

1. I'm not really old and I have siblings, so I know how to engage and make learning fun so they don't feel intimidated by a teacher appearance
2. I have managed to develop my own learning skills to suit my abilities and I work closely with each tutee to use their skills to improve their education. If they have learning difficulties, I show them how to use them to their advantage and find ways of learning that suits them.
3. I'm not perfect. I teach children that everyone is different and that being yourself is most important. I would never compare one student to another.

Having said this, I will aim to provide the best service of education I can, along with squeezing every ounce of potential out of each tutee so that they can ultimately reach or exceed their own goals and expectations so that they have the ability to get the best opportunities and have the best education possible.

Personal Description:
I like helping people improve their maths and Spanish skills.

I enjoy maths, it can be a fun subject to learn (yes really!). I find interesting and fun ways to explain how maths works and then get the pupil to work through questions and problems until they know each step very well.

I specialise in teaching maths at A level and first year university level. I also teach GCSE level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching either one-to-one, or small groups of students for the last 5 years. While I lived in Spain I would teach English to children and adults, as well as teaching A level and University level maths to Spanish students through the medium of Spanish. In the last year I have also started teaching Spanish here in the UK, always trying to pass on my enthusiasm for languages to my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I make the lessons as interesting and as fun as possible, as well as making sure my pupils are good enough at each step before they move on.

Personal Description:
I have a friendly attitude and find it easy to make people feel comfortable. I am a working artist as well as a teacher and I am passionate about my work. I have traveled extensively to exhibitions and galleries. My main interests are the impressionists and post-impressionists. I love the energy of color and I am able to teach the science of color and how it works.My main interests

Three artists who are very special to me are, Van Gogh, Cezanne and Matisse. I Love the way Cezanne carves out the 3D space using color. Van Gogh's paintings are beautiful arrays of color with wonderful patterns to create texture and physicality. Matisse can make his paintings sparkle. He knew exactly which colors to use to make his paintings explode with light.

Teaching Experience:

In the recent past I have been working as a supply teacher, chiefly because that is where there is plenty of work. I would like my work to be more art centered so art tuition would be ideal for me. I do not want to work full time as a teacher because I have my own work to do.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring would be to instill a knowledge and a love of color into my students whilst encouraging them to develop their own practices, looking at the great artists of the past as well as present day. Although a common opinion is that people are either good at drawing or not, I would disagree with this. Drawing can be taught just the same as English and Maths. I believe there is an artist inside all of us.
