I have 11 years performing experience; this combined with the inspiring training I absorbed in drama school gives me extensive knowledge and insight into my specialised area.

View Philip's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a Head of Mathematics working in a Birmingham high school. Therefore I have vast experience of teaching mathematics, particularly at GCSE level, including the new specification. I am an Honours Graduate from Liverpool John Moores University (BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance), and I have completed an extensive Mathematics course at Liverpool Hope University. This provided me with the knowledge and ability to teach up to A-Level Mathematics, including all Core modules but also Mechanics, Statistics and Decision mathematics. I am an accredited One-to-One Tutor after successfully completing a tuition course, approved by the Teachers Development Agency, and I have been offering private tuition for a few years now. I have a full enhanced CRB (entitling me to work with children under 18), in place which can be produced upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach mathematics to GCSE level in a 'Good' C of E High School in Birmingham where I am Head of Mathematics. I have been providing one-to-one and small group turning on since 2009. This has been with pupils aged 11 and upwards. In my teaching career I have been closely linked to intervention groups to provide tuition style teaching, in terms of exam preparation, in order to help the pupils meet the grades that they are capable of. This has been for GCSE and A Level exams. I have also had experience of tutoring college students (studying various subjects) for help with assignments that have a mathematic element. Additionally, I have been employed by other schools, over school holidays, to tutor their under-performing exam pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to one-to-one tuition is always to begin with identifying the pupil's areas of strengths and weaknesses and using this information to set targets that are in-line with the aim of the tuition sessions. I like to offer a relaxed and friendly learning environment, where a good working relationship can be established. I aim to build the student's confidence in the subject and their ability. I always come well prepared to my lessons, with a variety of resources and teaching techniques along with personal learning objectives for each session. These strategies are used to enthuse, stimulate and educate the student in order to make the relevant progression for that individual. There is always a clear line of progression from one lesson to the next as well as an appropriate pace within each lesson. I have high expectations of all my students and always encourage a pupil to make the most out of every session and achieve the best they can.

Personal Description:
I am currently taking my PhD in classics at Durham University, having taken my undergraduate degree in classics at Cambridge and my MA at Durham. Also I should mention that I have GCSE and A-level qualifications in Latin and Ancient Greek and am very familiar with the structure and requirements of these exams for any student who may be taking them. My current work focuses heavily on Latin literature, as I am preparing a commentary on Martial's twelfth book of epigrams, although I am equally able to offer assistance to students of classical Greek literature.

Teaching Experience:

During my undergraduate degree I gained experience in private tuition by running a weekly class for two years. The class was based around the works of Homer and catered to a range of abilities. Although the class was primarily geared around making sure the tutees could render an accurate translation of a set passage, assistance was also provided in matters of syntax and style, metrical and literary stylistic considerations, as well as explanations of socio-historical matters.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tuition will of course largely be dependent upon the needs and ability of the respective tutee. For GCSE or A-level students, however, I think it would always be best to begin each lesson with a quick test on a point of grammar and vocabulary (as there is a prescribed list of vocabulary up to AS level), and a literary stylistic feature (e.g. identifying a chiasmus etc.), since these formal aspects essentially underlie the series of unseen exams from GCSE - A-level. After this test, each lesson should focus on a text, ideally alternating each lesson with a text that is prescribed as one of the set texts for the respective exams with an unseen passage. This approach tends to produce the best results since the unseen passages give a true indication of the student's strengths and weaknesses and help the tutor to understand more easily what aspects need to be prioritised.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Oxford University Maths undergraduate with versatile interests and a passion for teaching. In love with Mathematics and hoping to become a teacher one day, I relish every opportunity I get to share my knowledge with others.

I am interested in classical music (play the violin), baroque opera and theatre. I am also writing a blog and am currently the editor-in-chief of the Oxford University Maths Society Magazine, the "Invariant".

Teaching Experience:

Co-founder and co-owner of Quill Tuition tutoring company: conducted Maths and English classes for individuals and small groups; including a Maths course for high-school students heading to leading UK universities; experienced with teaching online using interactive online whiteboard and classroom facilities (2015).

Private English tutor for adults and teenagers (2014).

Taught a high-school Maths insight course to a class of 14-year olds (2013).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that successful tutoring consists of two things: the right approach, tailored to individual needs of every student and constant repetition and revision. If my student does not understand something, I try different ways of explaining it to them for as long as it takes for them to grasp the difficult concept in question. This way I can quickly find out what learning style fits the given student and how to teach them most effectively.

Personal Description:
I am enthusiastic, supportive and encouraging teacher. I have a broad and wide love of literature but a special love for Shakespeare and Literature of the Romantic period, especially Mary Shelley and her contemporaries. I am also an enormous fan of modern American
and realist drama and Greek tragedy. I run a theatre company, study a masters and love singing, performing and writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for seven years - working as a private tutor for several bespoke companies in London, working abroad in Greece and Spain and in the UK at Stamford and Oakham Schools.

I am endlessly fascinated with the way in which Literature acts as a gateway to understanding life and, in turn, the superb ability of writers to capture and reflect the world they live in through written expression. Of equal importance to me, is the connection of Literature to all other subjects and I believe in introducing students of all ages to different texts and genres; I relish discussion of a single word, alongside considering a text in light of its historical context. I believe I am an energetic and enthusiastic teacher and I take enormous pleasure in helping students to give of their very best. Whilst I am excited by intellectual curiosity and rigorous debate, I love working with less able students and helping them to realise their own potential. A few of my students with severe dyslexia have achieved very highly in their IGCSE and AS examinations, in addition to the most able students gaining their predicted grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in finding opportunities for the students to enjoy the texts they study, in addition to coaching them rigorously in the necessary set of analytical skills they need to write top notch essays or descriptive/narrative pieces. I enjoy assisting students at all stages of their education and have experience in teaching all key stages. In addition to preparing students thoroughly for public examinations, I have been able to help pupils explore a variety of texts and genres and discover the joy of great writing

I enjoy helping students contemplating Higher Education - having helped students look at different courses, selecting modules and advising them on their personal statements; it has been rewarding to try and help students play to their individual strengths. I have delivered several specialist seminars for University applicants and assisted in delivering intensive mock interviews, both at Stamford and Oundle School, assisted with interviews and entrance examination preparation.

-Success rate has been excellent across the board and references/CV are available on request.

-Typically GCSE students are helped to move at least one grade up compared to before tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

-I take a very methodical and structured approach to tuition. This starts with a careful observation and assessment of a students strengths and weaknesses.

-From there I workout the most suitable way to get them towards their goal and to improve general skills such as problem solving, speed awareness, exam/revision techniques, memory improvements etc.These methods have been tried, tested and refined.

-Topics taught are personalised to the individual students strengths and weaknesses as well as individual progress rate.

-Students motivation and confidence is another factor which is worked on continuously.

-A broad range of resources is used to keep work varied where appropriate and trying to teach independent working is a constant.

Personal Description:
I`m a Spanish national who has been living in England for 10 years. In that time I have shared my passion for Spanish language and culture with many students of various ages and levels of ability, from small children to adult learners. I have a degree in English Studies, specialising in Spanish language for foreigners. In addition I have completed a number of courses and training related to teaching languages.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at Bhasvic College, Brighton University, Sussex Downs College, private tuitions and after school classes, amongst others and have more than 15 years of teaching experience. I`m also specialized in tutoring classes for GCSE, A level, AB students or other exam related class. With these classes students not only gained the ability to improve their knowledge in the target language, but also got the confidence to communicate in Spanish, something some of them lacked. I also guide them and give them advice in their essays as a normal tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

Enthusiasm and professional attitude ensures that your learning experience will be both enjoyable and rewarding.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself, I've been an Enrichment Teaching now for over 20 years, my area of teaching has been dedicated to the younger generation between 3-12 year-olds, offering unique individual study support from: homework projects, enrichment programs, to the school curriculum.

I originally set up my first Pre-school Enrichment Centre in 2002, which I'm proud to say, is still running 15 years later in North London, England. I'm also part-owner of an Enrichment Centre in Boca Raton, Florida.

Over the years I've experienced many different formats in teaching. Personally, I believe a 3-dimensional method offers more growth, as it provides children with the opportunity to learn through styles that best suits their individual needs and helps build confidence and success.

No matter if your child is enhancing in subjects, or just needs that personal TLC to catch up, opening that door of opportunity is the best thing any parent and tutor can offer.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, It will be a pleasure to support you and your children.

I look forward hearing from you soon
Amanda

Teaching Experience:

I'm qualified through Cambridge University, with a Cambridge primary teaching Diploma, Child Educational Psychology. Nova South-Eastern University, Fort Lauderdale FL: Florida Requirement in Teaching and communication.
Barnet College; (Level 3) NVQ Certificate in Child Development. Second Language TEFL/TESOL)

I believe there is nothing more rewarding, than supporting children to grasp the fundamental basics, watch them progress with confidence and enhance their ability to achieve goals.

I have been teaching pre-school and primary around the world for 15 years, from UK, France, and America.
Over the years, this has allowed me to observe education from both sides, the child's view and the teaching curriculum, providing me with the opportunity to offer children many different styles and methods to expand their understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child is unique when it comes to learning, and every child has their own different approaches to understanding a subject.
As a tutor, it's extremely important to always focus on each child's individual needs, and offer as many methods to support them build confidence, ability, and successful grades.

PLEASE NOTE: I offer sibling discounts, group tutoring discount, free worksheets, and an additional free 10 minutes discussion period to every session.

Personal Description:
I graduated with an upper 2:1 in English Literature and Journalism in 2012. As well as receiving a scholarship and bursary to attend this university, I was awarded the subject prize for journalism upon graduation. Hopefully, this goes some way to demonstrating both my strong work ethic and my aptitude for academia.

In the years since then, I have travelled extensively. As well as living in London, Brighton and Melbourne, I have explored South-East Asia and even taught English to local children in Laos. Now I've found my feet back in my hometown, and am currently working as a freelance copywriter creating all manner of marketing materials written to various client briefs. This means my schedule is fully flexible. I would love to spend a few spare hours a week tutoring, as I think it would be both a meaningful and a rewarding way to supplement my income.

Teaching Experience:

Aside from a stint volunteering in Laos teaching English to local schoolchildren, I have experience proofreading essays at various academic levels. This stems from my five-year career as a freelance copywriter. I am confident with my writing ability, as well as in my grasp of grammar and language. I feel well-placed to aid those who are perhaps not so confident in these areas.

I am also very widely read. An appreciation for context is fundamental for pushing literature grades up to those higher tiers.

Aside from this, I have experience on a one-to-one basis teaching piano lessons. I would certainly apply similar interpersonal skills to tutoring in English. I am patient, friendly, and above all else passionate about English literature and language.

Tutoring Approach:

Certainly, when preparing for English exams, a thorough understanding of the assessment objectives (AOs) is imperative to earn a higher grade. For an English literature exam, this would mean we would analyse a range of key literary critical concepts. We would also get to grips with how to structure an argument, as well as looking at writing techniques, context, and expression. As for English language, we would have a thorough look at various linguistic methods and terminology, including clause structure, tenses, and other key parts of speech.

I also encourage homework! The pressures of writing an essay under exam conditions are tremendous, particularly if a pupil is not prepared. In preparation for an English Literature A Level exam, I would recommend one essay a week under timed conditions, which I would then grade. It's challenging, but it is worth the work.

As for my teaching style, I find enthusiasm is often highly contagious. Whether it's a seemingly dry bit of Shakespeare or an enigmatic Romanticist poem, we'll work together to find ways to demystify the language and even make it enjoyable.

Apostrophe angst? Sentence structure struggles? I can also aid you with grammar, punctuation, writing techniques and other essential writing or language skills.
