At a reduced price I also teach small groups of up to 2-4 pupils.

Personal Description:
I did my A levels in French, German, Psychology and English literature at a Grammar School.
I got a 2:1 in French and German studies at the University of Warwick, which also includes a lot of essay writing and analysis of books, These are skills needed for english too.

I have French family so I am almost fluent in French. I love tutoring and I'd be happy to help.

Qualifications: 13A/A* at GCSE. A* in French and German. A in English literature and Maths
AS level - A in French, German and Psychology. B in English literature

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored from year 7 to GCSE in maths, english, french and german to many students. I specialise in French and German and have tutored more in these two subjects but I also offer English and Maths tuition.

For example, I have tutored a boy in Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning for the 11+ for two hours a week for a year. He then passed the 11+ and got into a Grammar School.

I was a german prefect at my school, and part of this involves mentoring GCSE students who are behind in german

I have helped children abroad to learn English in a primary school, both in France and Germany for a month.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and I engage with the student so that the lesson is both fun and effective.

Personal Description:
In the ten years I've studied bass I've gained a B-Tec National Diploma in music and music tech from Tauntons College and a Higher Diploma in music performance from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford where I am also studying for a Degree in music performance. This education fuels my passion for my instrument, and with such a huge variety of influences to choose from I couldn't see myself doing anything else.

Teaching Experience:

As a new tutor i have limited teaching experience however; during the course of my studies for my degree i have on many occasions had the opportunity to take on the role of the musical director of a performance. As a musical director i have had to think of different ways of explaining a task to my peers and have gained relevant teaching experience in the process.

Tutoring Approach:

I have found the best way to tech someone a new subject is to try and relate the subject to something the student has an understanding of or an interest in.

Subjects
  • Music
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a University of Oxford graduate, and a native Arabic speaker born and educated in Syria. I speak both English and Arabic fluently. I have an Arabic B.Sc in Geology from University of Aleppo- Syria, and two English M.Phils one in Philosophy and Worldviews from University of Oxford, and one in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation from Trinity College, Dublin.

Teaching Experience:

. Two years of tutoring in Syria.
. Four years of private tutoring for groups and individuals in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient tutor, and I do understand the difficulties with learning other languages.
I love the practical way of learning which does not come by wrestling with complicated grammars, but rather by studying the language practically. All languages developed by simply speaking and practicing, and this is therefore, the natural way to learn.

  • Arabic

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of Balliol College Oxford and have been teaching in London ever since leaving many years ago now. I live in West London with my family (although I am originally from Yorkshire) and like it here. We are all keen musicians too.

Teaching Experience:

As Head of Physics Department and then Director of Studies for two major Independent Sixth Form Colleges I have 35 years experience teaching A level Physics for many exam boards as well as examining. I wrote an A level revision guide for Penguin books called 'Masterstudies - Physics'.
I have taught mostly in small group situations but each year also teach a few individual students.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy communicating the underlying concepts in Physics and interactively building up a full picture of how the subject works for a student. I don't rely on a mathematical approach to the subject but encourage students to develop an all-round ability based on reasoned thinking as well as maths. Several students I have taught over the years have achieved 100% in A level Physics

Personal Description:
I am an Imperial College graduate in Biomedical Engineering (masters).
Being born in Italy from Italian parents, I'm a native Italian speaker. I have lived in the UK since I was 6 years old, I attended the European School in Culham, near Oxford, before moving to London for university.
I am a friendly and outgoing person, when I'm not busy with uni work I like to be in the company of friends, enjoy cinema, live music and playing/watching sports, particularly football and squash.

Teaching Experience:

Over my first two years at university, I helped some As and A-level students from my old school, especially during their exam period (i.e.: one on one revision sessions, helping out with coursework and writing sets of revision notes) in Maths, Biology and Physics.
Early in 2011 I joined the Blue Tutors agency, where my teaching skills were assessed and received full accreditation.
In October 2013 I did weekly one-on-one GCSE maths lessons for the month leading up to an exam. As well as the lessons I made revision notes for the student, whose mark increased from C- to B.
From January to April 2014 I was Project Coordinator and voluntary teacher in weekly extra curricular activity "Code Club", a basic computer programming workshop at Pimlico Academy. Generally about a dozen 13-14 year old students attended.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is generally quite friendly: I believe that at a subconscious level, a student will be much more inclined to listen to and learn from a person they trust and appreciate. However, I also believe the teaching style must be suited to the student, and largely depends on the subject being taught.
A particular technique which I have learnt from Blue Tutors and have tried to implement ever since, is to try and lead the student to the answer by asking the right questions, rather than just giving him the answer.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher holding Qualified Teacher Status for England, graduated from the University of Lodz with MA in Polish Language and Literature and postgraduate study of Teaching Modern Languages.

I have a good record of helping students with low grades to achieve A and A* (95% of my students achieved A and A*).

I have a lot of experience of teaching Polish as a foreign language to students and adults (including Business, tourist, and everyday Polish) on all levels.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. My name is John. I graduated from Sheffield University in the 1970s where I studied French and German. It was while teaching in a lycee in South West France as part of my course that I really developed a love of language and foreign travel. I subsequently went on to Liverpool University where I obtained a postgraduate teaching qualification. My teaching career extended over a number of years in a variety of schools in the public and private sector, including a spell as head of languages. In 2002 I studied to teach English as a foreign language. I was surprised to discover that teaching my native language in all its complexities gave me a valuable insight into teaching other languages, not just my own.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned the majority of my teaching lay in mainstream education, where exam preparation was of great importance. In addition, I have enjoyed teaching adults at evening and day classes. I currently teach English as a foreign language to home-stay visitors, but my main efforts are concentrated on private tuition to school children or adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Language learning can be easy, as long as it is varied and well structured. My basic method involves firstly presenting to the student the required vocabulary and grammatical structures, and then familiarizing him or her with them; this can be achieved through verbal drills, short exercises, word games etc. Once they are reasonably well acquired, they are put into a more practical context, imitating as far as possible real life situations e.g. 'asking directions in the street'.For this I use role play, sometimes involving what is called 'information gap', where the student must find out some practical piece of information solely by using the foreign language involved. Many students come to me because, simply put, they have lost the plot! Either they have experienced poor teaching or, for whatever reason, they have become de-motivated. In this case I would spend additional time practising verb formations etc - it is often grammatical structures which have fallen by the wayside.
My overall approach is friendly, but with high expectations. New tutees receive the first lesson free of charge, so that an assessment can be made as to the teaching required.

Personal Description:
I am native Argentinian who has been living in the UK for the past 14 years. I also spent 6 years living in Spain, so I am very familiar with both cultures.

Having worked with language and business for many years, I have a combination of cultural knowledge, teaching experience and training qualifications that make my lessons informative and fun.

I enjoy working with people; I am also a practicing psychotherapist and I carefully design and adapt my lessons to meet my students' needs - making learning Spanish exciting and interesting.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Spanish since 2006, one-to-one and small group language training for business people and individuals who need language skills for work, travel or exams ( A- Levels, GCSE, School support, etc)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is focused on process. I view the content of my courses
as a vehicle for teaching students how to think and understand the subjects we are working on. I attempt to accomplish this in three ways. One, I help students to get excited about learning. Two, I teach students to think about things from diferent perspectives and materials. And three, I help them to move forward with their knowledge. I believe that these three interconnected goals not only allow students to learn the specific content of my courses, but also to learn how to think critically about any new information they may face in the future.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching for 7 years and am currently taking a break to complete my Masters degree in cognitive neuroscience. I have most recently been teaching Psychology, Sociology and Health and Social care to A-level students.

I am a cheese loving, psychology adoring, fitness freak who enjoys blogging about dance, weightlifting and good nutrition! I have additional qualifications in anatomy and nutrition and enjoy sharing my knowledge on both these subjects and my mainstream subject specialisations.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught for 7 years, graduating from the University of Sussex in 2010 with a PGCE in middle years science. I have since taught GCSE, A-level and casual biology, psychology, sociology and health and social care. I have also taught KS2-3 maths, english, science and literacy skills. I have a 2:1 BSc degree in Psychology (Neuroscience) and am currently studying for an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Sussex.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning about my students is key - likes, dislikes and interests. This means that the subjects being taught can be tailored to fit the learning and understanding of the student. I enjoy working with students and teaching and feel that the natural excitement I feel can be transferred through explanation - this can be seen in the increased uptake of social sciences at my last teaching job and increased applications to university for these subjects.

Personal Description:
Masters from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (distinction) and first class English degree from the University of St Andrews. I have experience teaching at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and tutoring Essay Writing, Drama and English. I love working with young and adult learners, helping them to achieve their goals and to enjoy the working process. I specialise in the following areas:

ENGLISH at all levels - I tutor English from primary, through key stages, to higher education levels. I help students get through their exams, enjoy literature, and achieve the grades they need.

WRITING A GOOD ESSAY FOR YOUR DEGREE - Helping students transition from writing school to university level essays in all arts subjects. This is often a difficult leap, and I provide tutoring on structuring essays, citing academic sources and referencing, and clarifying one's argument. I also tutor adult learners returning to studies after a long gap, and undergraduate university students who are adjusting to a postgraduate level of academic writing.

VOICE and PUBLIC SPEAKING - Do you have to give a presentation at work, or does your child need to feel happier speaking up in school? Are you frustrated about being told you are "softly spoken" and would like to project your voice without straining? Through voice exercises, presentation practice and relaxation exercises, I can give you the tools to speak confidently and engagingly (without that crippling fear). I adapt this work to all ages.

ACTING CLASSES and AUDITIONING FOR DRAMA SCHOOL - my acting & performance skills were honed at RADA (a lead drama school) and I use this experience to tutor students who wish to audition. I help them select monologues that suit them, and coach them through the preparation process. I use games, text exercises, movement training and mock auditions to give them the best chance of success. I also teach voice and relaxation techniques to handle nerves on the day.

CREATIVE WRITING - I have training in creative writing, playwriting and dramaturgy. If there is a story you'd like to write I can help you through the process and teach exercises to counter writer's block.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored English for a range of ages, including school students, adult learners and university students from Birkbeck, University of London. I also have experience with M.E / Chronic Fatigue young people working outside of school.

I have been a visiting tutor for the Short Courses department of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, teaching Shakespeare, contemporary text and devising theatre. My other drama tutoring work includes Leuchars Community Drama, Haringey Shed and Notes of Fun.

Tutoring Approach:

My goal is to tutor my students to feel confident in their subject, and rise to the challenge of any exams, auditions or interviews that may come their way in their academic and professional lives.

To achieve this, it is essential to me that students enjoy the tuition process. This encourages them to improve in their chosen field, without feeling forced to wrestle something they hate.

I believe that to enjoy learning, a focused one-on-one approach is essential. As schools and universities have so many students through their doors, they cannot provide full assistance for all. In academic writing and English in particular, too many students fall through the cracks of the main system and lose confidence in their abilities. My job is to prevent that.

I therefore tailor my tutoring to the needs of each individual and discuss thoroughly with them at the start of the process what they want to get out of the sessions, and what difficulties they would like to overcome. All my exercises, games and homework are therefore specifically tailored to meet those needs and revitalise their interest in this subject.

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:
A dependable, passionate and well mannered Biomedical Science student with experience in tutoring. I am currently in my third year of studies, being trained in a pathological laboratory at the respectable Royal Marsden Hospital. In the future, I intend to undertake a PhD in my field and pursue a profession in lecturing.

Teaching Experience:

- Worked at Numberwork'n Words tuition centre as a maths and science tutor (taught pupils of all ages, from kindergarden to GCSE)
- Worked at Kumon tuition centre
- Previously tutored a student privately in GCSE mathematics

Tutoring Approach:

Personally I believe that every child is born with the ability to become a genius. There was a time when Albert Einstein had to learn how to count, when Shakespeare had to learn the alphabet, or when Darwin had to learn what biology even is. With the right attitude and guidance, there is absolutely no reason your child could not follow the footsteps of the most influential scholars.

The first meeting will be a discussion with the student/parents about the subject areas that need the most attention. Aside from adding to the pupil's knowledge, I will try my best to apply that information, and say why it needs to be learnt. My teaching method includes numerous questions and past papers, as this will be the most appropriate way to become comfortable with exams and get the most marks.

  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

  • Chemistry
