Personal Description:
I'm a 46-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

Personal Description:
I am an independent tutor with a strong scientific background and have lived in England since Aug 1965. Most of my school and college education took place in Dudley (West Midlands) and I studied Biochemistry, at Leeds University (1975-8). I am married and have lived in Cheshire since Dec 1978. We have a son and a daughter; both graduated from Universities in Manchester. Following my voluntary redundancy from AstraZeneca, (Jun 2008), I am now a self-employed Tutor / Consultant. In addition, I am able to speak additional languages (Punjabi; studied up to GCE A-level and Hindi) and prepared to travel up to 5 miles. I have been tutoring Yr 7 - 13 students, in Maths and all Science subjects, since Oct 2008. In addition, I have prepared students from Yr 6, for the 11+ exams; frequently used by private schools, as entrance exams. Testimonials / References (from Students and Parents) are available, on request.

Teaching Experience:

During my long service in the Pharma industry (~30 years), I have run many short courses and workshops. During 2005/6, I mentored a pupil (Year 10/11) at St. Peter's High School, Longsight, organised by the University of Manchester. In the past, I have also been responsible for organising and running the weekly classes at the Sikh Temple (Gurdwara), for teaching youngsters the Sikh way of life & Punjabi culture, in helping to improve their knowledge and integration into the Western Society over a period of ten years.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide tuition to individual students (or small groups) in the form of friendly, relaxed lessons. Teaching sessions are always customised to meet the specific requirement of the students. Generally, I enjoy teaching and considered to have a caring approach. I use a combination of computer and 'white board' based approach, for creating informal interactive / discussion type sessions, with some form of regular tests and re-cap sessions. Closer to the exams, the lessons are much more focused on using past papers covering a wide range of questions, to enable the students increase their confidence in preparation for the examinations.

Personal Description:
Angela's career has spanned over twenty years of graphic design and illustration followed by ten years of marketing communications.
She lives in a 17C house in Horsham with a studio in the outbuildings. She studied art foundation and graphic design at Epsom School of Art after which she worked in London Advertising Agencies and Design Studios.

Whilst her children were small she worked as a freelance designer supplemented by the part-time teaching of art in a boys school in Isleworth and as a lecturer of advertising/design at Amersham & Nene Colleges.In 2017 she is tutor for a group of artists in Abruzzo, Italy.
Angela now paints full-time and exhibits in London & the South and recently in Rome & Miami.
She is an Associate member of the Society of Women Artists and a member of the United Society of Artists.

Teaching Experience:

Art teacher at Syon School for boys (part-time) 1974
HNC tutor for Design. Northampton College (part-time) 1990-91
Art summer school for children at my barn studio 1991
HND tutor for Design & Advertising. Amersham College (part-time) 1989-91
Private one-to-one teaching 2009- current
Art week in Spoltore, Abruzzo, Italy 23rd April-30th 2017

Tutoring Approach:

I love to teach people who want to learn. A real joy for me is when people have enthusiasm but probably lack the techniques and the training to product a piece of work that satisfies them. We are all fierce critics of our own outpourings but understanding how to improve is the first step to feeling good about what we do. So many people have said to me that they would like to paint and draw but feel hopelessly inadequate when it comes to actually doing it. I can say that without doubt, all my students at Nene college felt that over the year they had finally produced work they were proud of and were amazed they could do this. I am a strong believer in drawing skills underpinning whatever style of painting is applied and so my starting point is always training to really see the world around us.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying Mathematics at Aberdeen University, and looking to make a little bit of extra money to help support my studies. I am very enthusiastic about maths and physics, something which I try to pass on to my tutees. I am looking to tutor standard grade, higher and advanced higher maths and physics and also advanced higher applied maths (mechanics) which is not listed on the site. I would also be willing to teach the English equivalents: GCSE, AS, and A level maths, further maths and physics, should anyone be interested. I am willing to travel or to tutor from my own flat (Old Aberdeen, near the University), whichever is more convenient for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2008. Although I could not list it on this site I would also be very interested in tutoring advanced higher mechanics. This is a subject which I actually taught myself in sixth year because my school was unable to provide the course. Having taught myself from a textbook I achieved an A grade in the exam. The skills I gained from this include the ability to set appropriate work, to decide which areas of the course need emphasis for the exam, and the ability to summarise the key outcomes from each topic.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to carefully go over what has been covered in class in order to find any areas of difficulty and then to spend time working through these areas and to build understanding and confidence to the point where the tutee can answer questions on the topic with ease. Moving through the coursework in this way ensures no gaps in course knowledge. In the lead up to exams and tests most of the time would be spent on revision and past papers, stopping to go over again any uncertainties. I would usually obtain from SQA the course specifications which detail each learning outcome, that is, what the student is expected to know. This gives me the ability to check through, systematically, every area which the tutee could possibly be tested on and thus ensuring that the tutee is fully prepared for the exams.

  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (25 p.h.)

  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)

To whom it may concern,

We were looking for a sympathetic, engaging tutor for our boy, just starting at GCSE level, to help him properly grasp the basics and develop his confidence. Nicolas has been a fantastic tutor, professional, well-organised, positive and always prepared to do that little bit extra. His bright and welcoming manner means that our boy warmed to him immediately, and already has a much more positive attitude towards French. Nicolas is very well-organised, with plenty of work material, a clear plan for developing the student`s knowledge and ability and a seriousness of purpose, while the lessons are conducted with an enthusiasm and positivity that is quite infectious. Highly recommended.

Jeremy, Ealing

To whom it may concern:

I find Nicolas to be an outstanding tutor. He was able to assess and tailor our time according to my learning needs. He provides me with information that is presented, reinforced and applied throughout all our sessions and adjusts lessons to address weaknesses or issues which have helped to improve my confidence in French. Nicolas is a positive, kind and energetic tutor that is passionate about helping his students achieve their goals. I recommend him highly.

Sandra, London Hyde park Corner

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

Nicolas is an excellent tutor. He helped my son with preparation to the Westminster challenge exam for 5 months. My son really enjoyed the lessons. Nicolas is a very responsible tutor who does his best to organize interesting lessons. My son got A at Westminster challenge exam.

Anna, London Hampstead

......................................................................................................................................................................

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

Nicolas has been our son's French tutor for the last 9 months.We were looking for a tutor who could focus on Common Entrance 13+ exam preparation, working on speaking, grammar and writing .
I strongly recommend him as a teacher.
He prepares his lessons, and teaches with great enthusiam.
My son, who attended Wetherby School in London,did not like and was not good at French at school and from the moment Nicolas started to teach him his view and understanding of French changed.
He is now on top of his class and loves french and this is all thanks to Nicolas.

"I highly recommend Nicolas as a tutor.He has tutored me now for around a year and I am very pleased with my progress.He is very organised and is always willing to provide extra help if needed.Furthermore,Nicolas has a variety of different resources which can be very helpful.I addition,he is very punctual and reliable.Throughout the year,Nicolas has helped me improve my speaking skills and grammar.One of his best qualities is that he is always willing to adapt to the needs of his students and that he is very flexible in his teaching style."


Vladimir (A level Student) ,London Victoria
.......................................................................................................................................................................

To Whom It May Concern:

I have been fortunate enough to have Nicolas as my French tutor. Having only 2 months to learn French before moving to Paris, Nicolas planned the course really well and I came out of it feeling ready to face the real French people. Nicolas is organized and very pleasant to be around. He is so helpful even if it is something, which is not related to the lesson. Nicolas adapted the lesson to my needs and plans the lessons every time beforehand. The material he uses to teach is quality and his approach in teaching is very easy to understand. I would highly recommend Nicolas to tutor French at any level.

Kind regards,

Thom , University student, London Gloucester Road

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

I would like to recommend Nicolas as a French tutor for your organisation or family.
Nicolas worked with us in London three days per week, as a French tutor. (We moved to the U.S. when the employment ended.) Nicolas took full responsibility for our two boys for three days per week.
His main focus was on tutoring and educating the boys in French. He spoke only French to them, allowing the boys to be fully immersed in the language. The activities allowed them to develop their French (both boys fully comprehend French conversation now and can speak), . Nicolas's energizing and interactive techniques were fun for the boys, and they engaged in the language quickly.
The boys loved their time with Nicolas . His tutoring techniques are excellent for young children..
Nicolas is dependable, caring, and trustworthy. I would fully recommend him as a French tutor for your children.

Personal Description:
I love history! I have been 'doing' history since I was 14, and it is something that encapsulates me into a whole different world. I have worked as a history teacher at a secondary school for 10 years, and have loved delving back into the past with the older and younger students alike. I studied and worked in archaeology before becoming a history teacher, and found working with real objects from the past was an amazing experience. More recently, I have reignited my love of English too, especially with regards to theatre and plays. Being close to London enables me to visit the West End as much as I can, and immerse myself in the amazing culture of Language and drama.

At home, I am mum to a 7 year old daughter, and 5 year old son, a cat and a dog. We keep ourselves busy being outdoors as much as possible and are totally hooked on camping! We enjoy the freedom it allows and the back-to-basics feeling. Plus the kids love getting muddy and staying up after dark, so camping allows for total liberation! My daughter has got the theatre bug too, and together we enjoy live performances as much as we can.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History at KS3, GCSE, AS and A-Level for 13 years. For four of those years I was Head of Department, responsible for issues such as curriculum, exams and monitoring student progress, so I am experienced in identifying areas of need for students and helping them to progress. I have been very successful with exam results, and have enjoyed guiding tutee's through their exam subjects.

I have very good knowledge of many of the exam boards and have been a marker for AQA and Edexcel GCSE History since 2014.
I am also a lead moderator for the A-Level Unit 4 coursework with Edexcel. I have substantial knowledge and understanding of what exam boards are looking for in responses to exam questions and coursework objectives.

I have been teaching GCSE English and Functional Skills in English to a wide range of people - adults and youth groups - since 2013, which has broadened my teaching spectrum, and provided me with new challenges in terms of my teaching. It is something that has been enjoyable and that I intend to continue.

I have been tutoring since Dec 2011, and really enjoy the change from class teaching. I have tutored a wide range of students with a wide range of needs, and have taught to all the exam boards. It is really rewarding to set up individual lessons and focus on exactly what is needed, knowing I can offer help and support to students. I like to be well prepared for individual lessons and to make the most of the time we have to improve techniques, subject knowledge and overall exam grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that what really helps students to progress is an understanding of exam technique. Having knowledge of the subject is important, but knowing how to handle it and use it in an exam situation if key to gaining top grades. I like to adopt a friendly and approachable manner with students to encourage focus and progress. I will go through essays and exam questions to identify areas that could be improved, and suggest ways of improving the use of language to make the most of student's knowledge. Giving feedback for written work is imperative to aid progress and this will take a large role in my tutoring.

Personal Description:
I have had a lifelong passion for all aspects of music creation and production, with enthusiasm to share my knowledge with others. I constantly endeavour to develop individual abilities and understanding of the subject and better myself. I am interested in writing as part of an ensemble or solo artist; moreover not scared to explore new and unknown genres to widen my musical palate. My free time is enjoyed with home studio production and novel reading; writers such as Dostoevsky, Wilde and King are particularly respected. After University, travels across the world have opened my understanding and admiration for culture and produced a true thirst for these different lifestyles with desire to discover more.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in Mathematical Economics from the University of Birmingham and a Chartered Management Accountant. I worked in finance for about twenty years and have been a governor in primary and secondary schools for many years before deciding to enter the teaching profession. I have been on the GTP training course for Secondary Mathematics at London South Bank University. I am the Instructor of the Kumon Study Centre in Eltham and do one-to-one tutoring in mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have 30 students on the Kumon maths programme at my study centre in Eltham. I individually tutor maths students from key stage 2 at primary school right through to A level. I also tutor statistics at GCSE, AS and A2 level. References are available on request.

Tutoring Approach:

There are many reasons why parents decide to appoint a tutor for their child. I will discuss your requirements in detail with you to ensure your child's tuition is tailored to them. Some pupils find the transfer from primary to secondary schooling problematic. I can explain the underlying mathematical concepts and to show them how to tackle questions so that they can get into the higher maths set for Key Stage 3 and GCSE. For older pupils I will build their confidence by presenting topics in a variety of ways and improving their exam techniques.
If one hour is too long for your child, I can arrange 30 or 45 minute slots. I will travel up to 5 miles from Sidcup.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (28 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (28 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a second year Physics with Astrophysics student at the University of York. I am a confident, mature individual who is driven to be successful. I have a down to earth personality which will make me more relatable and easier to pass on my breadth of knowledge.

Teaching Experience:

The only experience I have with students was in my second year of college. In collaboration with the Maths department, I ran a peer mentoring session with first years every week. This was an hour long meeting in the library or a classroom with 5-6 students, where I would help them with topics they struggled with or go over some details from their lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important and effective way of learning is through practice of the subject. I would use the first part of a session to go over some important points to a topic and teach basic skills. Then put these into practice, going through questions, aided and unaided, including past paper questions.

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be an enthusiastic, responsible and very organised person who likes to transmit calmly and in a methodical manner. Throughout my life I have attained an open mind towards the needs and desires of the people in my vicinity. My friends are from all walks of life and my frequent travels to places within Europe and further abroad have given me a great insight in different cultures and customs. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, and thrive on increasing my circle of friends.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous employment at The Macarena Hospital (Seville-Spain), I worked on a voluntary basis for a period of approximately two years, and with a frequency of one day a week, with hospitalised children. In this position I assisted the children with their class work.
Also, I have taught English (basic level) once a week, to my work colleagues in this previous employment (The Macarena Hospital - Seville-Spain). Furthermore, I currently teach Spanish language, both written and conversational, to a work colleague at my current job, supplemented by correcting any completed homework that I give to him at the end of each teaching session. It is with great pleasure that I observe the steady improvement in his knowledge of the fundamentals of the Spanish language and the gained confidence in his verbal expressions.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient person who likes to teach. My experience as a Spanish tutor is perhaps limited, but I have ample experience as a tutor of other subjects in previous employment settings. I always endeavor to find the most suitable and appropriate way to teach the subjects to my students. The student is always of my primary concern, and I make sure to create an atmosphere that allows for critical feedback in order to further improve and enhance the learning experience for both the student and myself. It is of my opinion that a satisfactory experience for the student increases the chance of achieving the intended results.

Personal Description:
I am a Politics and International Relations graduate from the University of Sheffield.

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential. I like to act as a mentor for tutees and encourage them to think about their future. I have vast knowledge of the university admissions process through my previous work experience and am willing to offer guidance with UCAS applications and university admissions in general.

I believe all students are able to achieve the best grades, it all comes down to their own motivation, hard work and of course teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have both informal and formal tutoring experience. I have tutored pupils up to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. My philosophy of teaching is based on allowing the students to develop their own thinking and use real life examples where possible. I do place emphasis on past papers and perfecting exam techniques as these are essential for the students to achieve the best grades possible.

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:
A graduate of Cambridge University and a father of two children, I am a Latin teacher in a Surrey preparatory school. Following closely the educational experiences of my children, I have a passion for teaching younger minds. I have a keen interest in how children have different methods of mastering subjects, using their own skills to progress, improve and attain examination goals.

Teaching Experience:

Currently a Latin teacher for school years 6 to 8, simultaneously teaching groups at all levels of ability up to Common Entrance.

Tutoring Approach:

The key to success is to understand where the student is starting from. By cementing what they already know, I then encourage them to gradually extend their knowledge so that they feel themselves to be making progress and they are then inspired by their own confidence.

Personal Description:
I grew up with early computers such as the ZX Spectrum, and was writing simple programs from the age of five.
