Teaching Experience:

Five years teaching English at an Independent school in Exeter at Primary and Secondary level. Teaching part-time at Exeter College - 'A' level English Language. Teaching English as a foreign Language during summer holidays. Now working in a local Secondary school.

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.

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

  • GCSE or Standards (£25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a second year PhD student at the University of Nottingham having completed my integrated masters degree in Mathematics in the 1st Class. In my PhD I am investigating the effect of rotation on vortices in fluid flows. I hope to use my passion for teaching in further education.

Teaching Experience:

My past tutoring experience includes both GCSE and A level pupils helping them achieve the required grades to attend their university or college of choice.

At university I assist in undergraduate problems classes to assist the lectures in answering questions from the students.

I feel my age and recent undertaking of A-level and degree examinations gives a less formal and more comfortable tutoring experience whilst still maintaining a high quality of tutoring and I can understand the problems and difficulties students may come across as I will have hit these problems myself in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

Since I myself have recently completed my degree and not so long ago my A levels I feel I have an up-to-date understanding of these examinations and the perfect exam technique as well as the required academic content. I am able to empathise with students and provide techniques for understanding which worked for both myself and fellow students. Furthermore having taken A level further mathematics I would also be able to offer tutoring for students taking this as a full A-level or AS-level.

Personal Description:
I have a very high level of mathematical understanding and very good explanation of the subject area. I am intuitive, passionate about the topics I study and aspire to become an investment banker in the near future. I have had internships at global banking corporations which has pushed me harder to succeed in life.

Teaching Experience:

I have had relative experience teaching students mostly at GCSE level preparing them for exams a few months prior. Currently I have a small group of students whom are getting ready for their assessments, therefore, I teach in groups. Also I have taught individual students in the past from primary through to the end of GCSEs. In the experience I have had teaching, my students have received minimum A grade in the past

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is all about positive reinforcement. I use mini games and different techniques to enhance and enjoy learning. I believe this helps students reach a higher level of knowledge and success. I am efficienct and practical in explaining problems and solutions due to time restrictions. Using a diverse range of structure and use of resources, the student will achieve a better grade than when they first started.

Personal Description:
My name is James and I am an 18 year old student at the University of Chester. I currently study French at university. I am fluent in both English and French as I lived in Geneva, Switzerland for the past seven years. I went to an international school where I completed the International Baccalaureate (IB). I have four younger siblings, two sisters and two brothers, aged between 3 and 10 so I am used to being around children.

Teaching Experience:

As a part of the IB we needed to complete something called Creativity Action and Service (CAS hours), for my service I tutored students in the lower years in French. This ranged from my brothers friends in year 2 right the way through to year 10. I enjoyed my experience of tutoring and would like to further it by tutoring here in Chester whilst at university.

Tutoring Approach:

As each child's approach to learning varies, I prefer to have an introduction lesson where I can talk to the parents and the child to gain a proper understanding of the child's needs, strengths and weaknesses. This is extremely important for the 11-14 year olds and the GCSE students as it will help taylor a lesson that they can benefit from the most. This is also important for the primary school students as the lessons must be fun and interactive to keep them interested, if I can find out what they want to learn then I can plan a lesson that they will enjoy.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of the Newcastle University BMus (Hons) Folk and Traditional Music where I specialised in Scottish traditional fiddle music. I am both an experienced teacher and performer, having performed at various festivals throughout the country. I am comfortable playing in a variety of musical styles and I am happy to tailor lessons to the interests of each individual pupil.

Teaching Experience:

During the past five years I have taught a range of age groups from young school pupils to adults in both one to one lessons and group settings. I have also had a great deal of experience teaching beginners, most recently the Bellingham Middle School Ceilidh Band. During my later years of school I assisted with a young children's string orchestra and also an intermediate traditional music group. As part of my degree I have studied different techniques of teaching traditional music within the community.

Tutoring Approach:

The initial lesson provides an opportunity for both myself and the pupil to discuss any past musical experiences and also understand what they wish to gain from future lessons. I plan my lessons around the interests of the pupil which in return allows them to get the most out of their lessons. Whilst I strongly believe that there are benefits to reading notation, I also teach by ear and am happy to focus on this if a pupil so wishes. I encourage my pupils to bring along any music they wish to learn in addition to their set pieces.

I offer hour long lessons, suggesting a starting point of half an hour for beginners. Groups lessons are possible.

Personal Description:
DO YOU NEED A TUTOR FOR EXAMS/RE-SIT EXAMS THIS YEAR? LOOK NO FURTHER!


I have been teaching Psychology since 2001 at several of the best performing sixth form colleges in the Greater Manchester area including Holy Cross College and Loreto College. Both colleges were awarded grade 1 by OFSTED.
I am 40 years old, married, living in Didsbury, South Manchester. I gained my degree in Psychology in 2000 and PGCE in 2001. I began teaching for over 15 years of experience teaching Psychology. I also have extensive experience of working with students with a wide range of learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia.

I offer tuition at my home, either at the weekend, weekdays and evenings

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE in 2001. I teach Psychology GCSE, AS and A2 level, and this is therefore my main specialism. I also have extensive experience of working with students with a wide range of learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia.
I have many years' experience of teaching the AQA, OCR & WJEC specifications. I am also an experienced examiner for AQA, OCR and WJEC and have marked most units at GCSE, AS & A2 level.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that my greatest strengths tutoring are firstly my ability to build sound relationships with parents and pupils. Secondly my skill at gaining a clear understanding of a pupils exact needs, to motivate and build self-esteem, and thirdly my commitment to helping student access teaching materials in order to gain success .

I have successfully taught many students privately on a 1-2-1 basis at home. I have taught a mix of abilities and needs from students with special needs struggling to cope with traditional academic teaching to a Paralympian trying to find time to study while training. I have taught a number of privately educated students with dyslexia who benefited from being shown alternative ways to achieve success.

I have an incredibly strong track record of excellent results at GCSE & A Level Psychology. Marking for the exam board help me focus students learning and tailor their writing styles to achieve a high quality answer in exams.

Growing up as a dyslexic afforded me a unique insight into the importance of developing study skills that are essential in being able to access knowledge & build understanding. Due to being dyslexic I have been fortunate enough to develop strategies within my teaching to help student's who may have difficulties in learning and breaking down barriers to learning which can effect one's self-esteem and contribute to underachievement. I found this to be particularly true of students I have tutored privately both dyslexic and non - dyslexics.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher with a Master's degree in English Literature. I have also recently graduated with a First class Honours degree in Physiotherapy from Salford University.

While studying for the Physiotherapy degree I have undertaken tutoring work online concentrating on study skills assignment support, and proofreading.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching within a local college and taught students from the age of 16 years old and above. This was primarily focused on Literacy and Study Skills. During this time I also taught students from a range of EU and international students focusing on their grasp of English as a second language. During this time I followed a Government-set curriculum to help students achieve G.C.S.E. equivalent grades to allow them to progress onto Access courses and beyond.

During my last degree I worked with students with learning difficulties including hearing impariments, dyslexia and dyspraxia. This involved notetaking, assignment structure and time management skills. More recently I have worked as a tutor online helping with essay planning and structuring, proof reading and correction of written work for spelling, grammar and paragraph restructuring, time management and organisational skills, referencing and completion of reference lists and proofreading for Further/Higher education students, up to Masters level.

I also have experience of helping international students in terms of organising the study skills, supporting them, and mentoring them on their difficult academic journey. I have also recently assisted with international publishing projects, mainly in the healthcare field

Tutoring Approach:

I take a structured and methodical approach to helping students and believe that if the right foundation is set and appropriate planning implemented, the student will achieve to the best of their ability.

For all assignments work I use a University-based academic writing skills format currently in use at the University of Salford.

I am offering tuition online, via email. Once we have agreed the way forward I will give you an honest appraisal of what services I am able to offer and the time that this is likely to take.


I am happy to send references if required. I have a CRB check from my Physiotherapy degree which will be updated by my current employer.

Please note that I am unable to write your academic assignments for you as this would be unethical.

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.

One of my responsibilities as a postdoctoral researcher was to mentor physics students. I am used to explaining difficult concepts and techniques in a clear, simple and concise way. I have been working as a maths and physics tutor since January 2016. I currently teach students from 13 to adult, up to advanced higher.

I have recently become involved in school outreach, doing talks on the Big bang.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage the student to think for himself/herself rather than spoon-feeding the material. I ensure that the student understands the fundamental concepts behind each topic, and does not simple regurgitate methods by rote. I aim to instill a fundamental understanding of the subject, but as exams approach I go through past papers and hone exam technique.

Personal Description:
I am an undergraduate at the University of Oxford (Exeter college) reading for a BA in Music, and attended the Liverpool Blue Coat School for seven years. I achieved my Advanced level qualifications in 2016 with A* in Music (the first grade of that category in the subject for my school), A* in Maths and A in Chemistry, and I was a member of my school's orchestra, choir, and took part in many other extra curricular musical activities. I am a choral scholar at Exeter college, Oxford, regularly play in orchestras at university and home, and composition is a particular area of interest for me within my degree. I enjoy engaging in philosophical debates and discussing ideas and how they change through history.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped out at my school's open days in the chemistry music and maths departments where I have explained how teaching works, but also taught students myself to help show the type of topics covered. In day to day school I also often end up explaining things in these subjects to enhance people's understanding. I was also a part of Resonate Music Hub and led the youth orchestra there, which entailed peer guidance and for a while I helped out in the younger groups helping to tutor the children on string instruments. In previous years I have tutored children 1 on 1 for the Blue Coat entrance exam, and also have experience working with less able children, and those who need a little more guidance in many subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one of the best ways to learn and understand important concepts and facts is for the student to lead the reasoning with guidance from the tutor. I will use this approach to ensure that the student fully understands what is being taught but also I am aware that many things require a different approach, involving slower step by step teaching method. I will also cater for students who want to know more about the subject, and I believe my very current A level and degree knowledge can provide information where questions are asked, which I very much encourage. In terms of tutoring for the entrance exam I believe the best way to prepare is to go through practice questions and explain how they work and how to best gain marks. My degree has shaped my writing style so that I can assist students with their essay writing and how to succinctly shape arguments.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate with MSci degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Queen Mary, university of London. I am a professional yet friendly and easy going individual who is very passionate about inspiring young minds. I believe I am equipped with all the right tools that are required to identify the needs of the students and to help them achieving their goals beyond expectations.

My prices per hour are negotiable!

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring at different tuition centres to KS2, KS3, GCSE & AS-Level as well as A-Level students for Maths & Sciences for more than 3 years.

I am also actively engaged in private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

Very friendly, Easy to understand.

I always aim to provide a comfortable environment to my students so that they can freely express their views about the areas of a subject they struggle in. I also judge how ripe their understanding is towards a given subject by using carefully customised assessments. This enables me to positively interact with the students and construct a productive teaching/learning plan.

I come prepared to teach for every tutoring session. In order to make things interesting and understandable, I relate the topics and their applications to the practical world and pick up the examples from the real life events. I also ask frequent questions to keep my students engaged and active towards learning and urge them to use their knowledge to reach the answers.
