Personal Description:
I love teaching !
People describe me as enthusiastic, skilled, engaging and reliable.

I have been a full-time tutor since 2004 and I cater for all levels, working with both young people and adults to improve their French. I also tutor Maths and Computing.

Teaching Experience:

Many of my students are adults learning French for pleasure or business. I help students preparing for their GCSE and A Level. I also run classes for home-educated children, including children with dyslexia or on the autistic spectrum.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor lessons to meet the individual needs of my students with a gentle and creative approach. I use a variety of "active-learning" approaches.

I love instilling my love of learning into my pupils and I always get results in a relaxed, enjoyable and rewarding way. Students progress rapidly as most of the sessions are spent talking in French, even with beginners. The objective is to make you feel confident in French. If you really want to learn, one-to-one tuitions are an effective solution.

  • Computer Studies / I.T.

Personal Description:
Hello - I am a friendly and approachable teacher who is based in Surrey and uses a variety of teaching methods and techniques to help students consolidate their understanding, progress and achieve to the best of their ability. I have taught students of all ages and abilities and have received positive feedback from my students. I believe that questions should never be considered irrelevant or silly and that as each student is an individual, different methods and approaches may be required to aid their understanding. Please feel free to contact me for further information or guidance.

Teaching Experience:

9 Years teaching experience in Secondary schools. I have taught both boys and girls of all ages and also adults. I teach Latin to GCSE level and Classical Civilisation / Ancient History to A-level. I am also able to assist students with study skills, improve their English language skills and have knowledge of other languages such as French and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have an idea of what topics the student has already studied and which text books they are currently working from. The first session will be to find out what areas the student feels they are struggling in and what topics need more focus and consolidation. As each student is an individual, the sessions will be tailored to their unique learning needs and I will help them to gain as much as they can from each session and hopefully improve their understanding, their achievement grades and confidence in their abilities.

Subjects
  • History
  • A-Level or Highers (40 p.h.)
  • English (Foreign Language)

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Mark and I have lived in Belfast for 20 years. I have always loved mathematics, and loved learning more about it. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject to you and help you maximise your potential. If you're coming up to major exams, I can help you get the best grade possible for you!

Teaching Experience:

I have lectured in Queen's University for 10 years, and have been teaching others mathematics for longer. My private students have done well with my support, and I can bring the best out of you too.

Tutoring Approach:

For some people maths is easy and enjoyable - you just need help sharpening up your examination skills and revising in a new way to get a top grade.

For other people maths is a challenge - you get the general idea but need help understanding some principles, and certainly need to practice in order to get the grade you deserve.

I have worked with both types of people for years, and I can work with you! I offer one-to-one tutorial sessions, in my home or yours, backed up by email and telephone support where needed.

Personal Description:
I am a technical safety engineer with specialization in design assurance and risk management.

I have master of science degree in Safety engineering,Reliability and Risk management and a certified Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner( NEBOSH)

When am not doing my professional assignment as Technical Safety Professional , I love to play football ,do some motivational chat and brainstorming analysis of current issues(political,cultural or economic) with friends .

I am always on the look out to impact knowledge and get anyone I meet enlightened as much as I could.

Teaching Experience:

I have experiences teaching across different levels, ranging GCSE to University level as well professional training . I have almost 15 years teaching experience on part-time basis.

I have been mostly involved in teaching mathematics , physics and 1st and 2nd year university Engineering courses - Applied Electricity, Thermodynamics and other mathematical/statistical subjects. I also train professionals in Oil and Gas Industry in Risk Management , Technical Safety as well as Occupational Health and Safety ( I am Professionally Certified by NEBOSH- National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health, UK)

Tutoring Approach:

I like to start from the fundamentals then moved into understanding of the complex areas. Once the basic principles are well understood, mastery comes through continuous practices. Creating a lot of illustrations with life scenario examples that help good memory is another of my strategic way of impacting knowledge.

Work examples , studying past questions for those with upcoming exams and teaching on different style of effective studying, have proved to be successful in my years of teaching. I am also available to develop notes, questions and answers on any particular subjects I am teaching.

I always create a relaxed and interactive environment for my student to learning . I naturally enjoy impacting knowledge and get so fulfilled when I see my students progressing better.

Personal Description:
I am a Spanish native speaker and I am fluent in English. I have a Bachelor's degree in Literary Studies from the National University of Colombia. I am currently completing my Master's thesis in Latin American literature in London having finished the taught components of my course at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) in Argentina, where I was living for 2 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have been living in London for around 5 months now, since moving here in late July 2013. I have about 5 months experience working as a private tutor teaching Spanish as a second language to adults in London, as well as several months of experience teaching Spanish to some English speakers in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have also worked as a teacher in Colombia for about 2 years, mainly in pedagogical projects for Secondary School students and teaching as a lecturer for some months on a degree course in Basic Education and Spanish language and literature in Bogota.
I have a wide range of professional and academic skills acquired in the areas of research, teaching literature and language, promoting literacy and proofreading.

Tutoring Approach:

As a Spanish teacher and Spanish language and literature postgraduate student, I can offer you not only a good training in the four skills of language learning (speaking, listening, reading and writing) but also an enjoyable way to learn through didactic materials based on literature, film and music as well as an approach to Latin American culture.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris. With a good academic background, and now with excellent feedback, my approach is to not only impart knowledge, but also attempt to generate a passion for a subject that will remain long after any examination success. Educated at King's Collage School, Wimbledon and a subsequent degree course in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at King's College, London, I joined the BBC as a television recording engineer in 1976. I became a successful editor with the BBC and continue to enjoy the same role now on a freelance basis.
I am a good communicator, and seem to have the knack of explaining sometimes difficult concepts with clear and concise explanations. I have kept in touch with my core subjects (maths, physics and science) throughout my life and retain a keen interest in all of them. I'm not just a book-based dry academic but someone who knows how to fire enthusiasm for learning that will last long after any examination paper. My work has never been Mon-Fri 9-5, so I am available during the working day both in term time and school holidays.

Teaching Experience:

I have now been tutoring Maths for over two years which has generated good feedback and positive results from parents and students alike.
I think that is all that counts.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to impart my enthusiasm for the subject to my students. This is so much easier on a one to one basis compared with the classroom. A tutor will often cause the 'penny to drop', not by simply repeating a classroom lesson, but by offering a different explanation of a problem. Working in close contact with the syllabus, I quickly identify areas of weakness in the understanding of a subject, and repair that damage as quickly as possible. This is essential, especially in maths, as new concepts can rely so heavily on previous knowledge, which, if absent, will make comprehension of new material even more difficult. This is presumably why you are looking for a tutor in the first place. Homework, mock exam questions are essential, not only as feedback for me to know how successful any lesson has been, but also for you as a parent to see if any improvement has been achieved. A return for your investment if you like. Get in touch.

"He delivered the content with passion and skill, I'm now at medical school thanks largely to him."
"Dave always taught chemistry in a memorable, relevant way, and it felt like we didn't just do everything for the exam. I had a great time with him as my teacher."
"He teaches in a way which makes us learn and remember. He makes us write down his hip-hop "chemical raps" in the back of our books,"
"I regularly still rap the second law of thermodynamics. Typically on a first date. Hasn't worked yet, but boy do I remember it. Thanks Dave for all your work!"
​"You were an inspirational teacher, and your enthusiasm carried me all the way to my PhD! If you're half as good a tutor you'll do just fine. Good luck!"
"You were my inspiration as a PGCE student!! All the very best in your retirement!"
"He managed to get me a B grade at A level which I doubted was anywhere near possible....
He is highly knowledgeable, patient and most of all able to make science both fun and accessible. Making the concepts come alive made learning more fun but they also stuck around long enough in my grey matter for me to make the grade; far exceeding my expectations! I still remember the physical representation of entropy as he leapt from bench to floor! Immense! HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND I AM NOT EASILY IMPRESSED!!!"

Teaching Experience:

Ex-Head of Science and Head of Chemistry from a top Bedfordshire Upper School. A highly experienced school chemistry teacher with over 30 years of experience in schools in UK, Australia and in one-to one private tuition. I offer online or face to face lessons at home.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching and learning are complex processes whose success relies on a trusting relationship between student and teacher. Initially, I will question, listen, challenge and probe to discover a student depth of knowledge, ability to think scientifically and their aspirations. This will enable me to identify areas of weakness and work at developing confidence in expressing ideas orally and in writing. Finally, practising exam questions will help develop in-depth understanding and skills of problem solving and analysis.

Personal Description:

I specialise in tutoring the following subject areas: Computer Science, Software Engineering, Computer Programming.

Teaching Experience:

Over five years experience as a Technical Supervisor for British Gas, which involved creating and delivering training programmes to staff. I also have a growing client base of students who I tutor on a part time basis. I have tutored and mentored students in computing and related subjects to help them obtain high marks for assignments, exams, and final year projects.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to simplify complex subject areas by working through examples that break down questions into smaller, more easily understood component parts.

Personal Description:
A first class Medical Sciences graduate and qualified teacher, I have over 5 years` experience in teaching/tuition.

Well-versed in most major exam boards, I am able to work successfully with students across all levels of attainment in order to further their understanding of core scientific principles and enhance their exam technique. My position as an assessment specialist with two of the major exam boards has enhanced further my understanding of how credit is awarded in exams - enabling me to not only improve students' subject knowledge, but to improve their approach to exam questions as well.

I take a positive and friendly approach to tuition, and am happy to be flexible in using the methods that best suit the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor since attending university in Exeter, and have helped students to improve on their grade by up to 3 grade boundaries over time.

I taught professionally for two and a half years, training through the prestigious Teach First programme. My progress was judged as outstanding. I was consistently judged good/outstanding, both internally and by Ofsted, and I was a lead teacher in my last role.

Tutoring Approach:

Largely, this will depend on what the student is hoping to achieve. I appreciate that, most often, a student's aim is to achieve a certain grade in an exam. In these cases, I will spend a lot of time working with the student to familiarise them not only with the material for the exam, but with the format of the exam paper, exploring how to approach different types of question and working directly with mark schemes to best understand how credit is awarded.

I am, however, passionate about my subject, and aim to uncover some enthusiasm for the sciences with all my students, through engaging sessions in which we can explore topics in perhaps more detail than is often possible within schools.

Personal Description:
Qualified, professional English teacher - 25 years experience at all levels and abilities.

I have a personal, friendly approach, which is individualised to learners` needs, following initial/informal assessment and discussion with parents or with learners themselves.

We can follow a negotiated programme of study or I can assist with planning and preparation for classwork assignments, revision and study for exams.

Thank you for reading my profile - I look forward to working with you.

Teaching Experience:

25 years as a teacher of English in the National Curriculum - up to A level and English as an Additional Language. I teach to all abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique and logical thought.

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (45 p.h.)
