Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, energetic teacher with eight years experience teaching and tutoring A-level with a passion for my subject. In my spare time I watch and play football, enjoy reading, hiking and watching films; on the odd occasion I like to go skiing or scuba diving.

I studied A-levels before deciding to go to Durham University to read Chemistry. Once I finished my degree, I trained as a teacher at Manchester University and worked in Manchester for three years before moving down to London for four years. I have been teaching A-level Chemistry for eight years in total and have experience tutoring every exam board including the IB. I am also an OCR Examiner and Reviewer for AS Chemistry Exam Breadth in Chemistry.

In the Summer 2014 exams, I successfully guided the Chemistry department to their first 100% pass rate and a headline figure of 83% A-C in AS Chemistry.
In the Summer 2015 exams, the A-level Chemistry results at Sacred Heart were one of the best with 93% A*-C (64% A*-B).
In the Summer 2016, A-level Chemistry achieved 80% A*-C (65% A*-B) grades.

I left teaching this year to go back to university to read Medicine, however I am still looking to tutor students who require support and advice in Chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

First Post: Crompton House School (OCR): September 2009 - August 2011(Teacher of GCSE and A-level Chemistry)

Second Post: Bolton School (AQA): September 2011 - August 2012 (Teacher of GCSE and A-level Chemistry)

Third Post: Sacred Heart Catholic School (OCR): September 2012 - August 2016 (Lead Teacher of Chemistry)

OCR Specialist Examiner for Breadth in Chemistry: September 2013 - present

Currently a Medical Student at Manchester University.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very calm, patient and relaxed person and this is reflected in my tutoring. Many students can have difficulty with Science (in particular Chemistry) and with a one on one approach can be more motivating than in a classroom environment. I have an excellent knowledge of Science and can communicate this effectively. I will take you as far as you need to go in the subject and will be efficient with your time. Past successes include two students whom increased a grade from a B to A to get onto a Medicine course and also recently a student whom achieved a C at AS level and came out with an A for his full A-level.

I normally tutor by focusing on key concepts and ideas, using past paper questions to highlight what the exam requirements are and help students learn to apply their knowledge. I can also tutor in a less formal way where students can bring particular questions or topics and we can discuss them and look at application and exam style questions.

Personal Description:
My name is Rob and I provide piano lessons in the Wootton Bassett and Swindon area. I have been playing the piano and singing for over 30 years - which I enjoy immensely!

I believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and experience the joy that it bringS - not just for yourself, but for everyone else around you,too!

Lessons are fun, informal, constructive and progressive.

ABRSM examiations can be undertaken, or you can learn just for pleasure. My aim will be to give you the best instruction in the most informative way possible.

Theoretical terms are taught alongside piano and singing lessons, to ensure that you are fully equipped.

I offer a FREE introductory appointment where I will meet you and discuss your needs and requirements and devise a programme which will work for you or your child.

I teach from a music study in my own home, with piano lessons conducted on an excellent Yamaha upright Piano.

My own 3 daughters have enjoyed learning to play the piano on this instrument too!

However, some lessons can be provided at your home, if practicable.

I am member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, CRB checked, fully insured, and keep myself updated with the latest teaching techniques on courses and through further study.

Agreements for teaching are professionaly drawn up by ISM to give you peace of mind.

References from pupils, or parents of pupils can be provided.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me either via phone or email.

About Me

I grew up in South Wales as part of a large musical family.

I started playing piano and studying singing at the age
of 8, where I first studied Piano with Joyce Powell and the very talented Rowena Oakey, and 's Newport. I am also a skilled marching band percussionist,
having played all the instruments in this family.

From Head Chorister at St. John's Church, Maindee, and Bandmaster of the Borough of Newport Pipes & Drums, I conducted the Massed Male Choirs at the National Eisteddfod in Newport in 1987 at the age of only 21.

I am a former trombonist of the Band of the 3 BattalionRoyal Regiment of Wales, and former conductor of other male choirs including Newport (Gwent) and Snowdown (Kent).

I also studied singing at many RSCM courses. I have performed in a variety of venues including Bath Abbey, the Royal Albert Hall, Westminster Cathedral, Cardiff Castle, Dover Castle, Plymouth Hoe, the NEC and Wembley.

I really enjoy performing, conducting and teaching - all three skills I use to the pupil's advantage.

In 2001, I formed what is now the very successful Wessex Male Choir, whom have since won many competitions on the International stage, and which is still growing in size (now 60 choristers strong!), musical ability and popularity. See our website

In 2005, TV & Radio Presenter and singing star Aled Jones, became the choir's patron.

I have arranged lots of music for Male Choirs and some solely for Wessex.
I feel humble that my passion for choral music has enabled me to be entrusted not only with continuing the fine tradition of Male choirs, but preserving and developing it for generations to come.About Me

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Rob.

Personal Description:
I am a young and enthusiastic private tutor with more than 6 years' experience, specialising in English Literature. I am familiar with a wide range of literature, including many popular school set texts. I welcome tuition requests from students at all levels and of all ages.

I hold a First Class BA degree in English as well as an MA in Victorian Studies with Distinction, both from the University of Exeter. I am also in my final year of a PhD in Victorian Literature at the University of London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught a range of ages and abilities in English Literature, both in the UK and the US. I have tutored children learning to read, primary school children, secondary school students (KS3, GCSE and A level), university students (at BA and MA level), and adult learners (including those studying an online course and those studying with the Open University).

Three years ago I also began giving tuition on English grammar and punctuation to adult learners wishing to improve their business communication skills.

I have helped students write clear, effective and successful personal statements for university applications for more than 7 years.

I also have experience of helping teach primary school children to read, write, and improve their comprehension skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to each individual students according to their needs, following a consideration of their strengths and weaknesses in the course of the first two sessions. This enables me to teach and enthuse each student. When students are shown different ways of looking at a text, and ways in which it relates to their own lives, literature becomes much more accessible, encouraging them to study and achieve better academic grades.

Extra tutoring gives students individual attention beyond the scope of the classroom, and offers an opportunity to look at set texts in more detail, and at the right pace.

Improving students' confidence is central to my approach to tutoring. With individually tailored tutoring, determination to succeed, and improved confidence, my students are able to achieve excellent grades and reach their full potential.

Personal Description:
I have spent many years accumulating a wide range of academic qualifications, and my work has often primarily consisted of passing on my knowledge to others in a form they can understand. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people to understand something they thought was beyond them. By virtue of having studied several subjects at a high level, I empathise with the feeling of finding something difficult, and have the patience and technique to get past this. I am not a single-subject specialist who might find it difficult to understand why others struggle in their area of expertise.
For students who are preparing for exams, my knowledge of examination technique, and an empathy with the marker, should be invaluable. I always keep in mind the importance of the student's goals, but never take myself too seriously.

Teaching Experience:

My whole career has been geared towards some form of teaching. I have trained groups of adults and children, as well as individuals, in elements of mathematics, psychology, actuarial science, pensions, and even tennis! Recently I tutored my 14 year-old son (who attends a sports academy, not a mainstream school) in three IGCSEs, for which he obtained excellent grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I look at what is important for the student. I emphasise clear, logical ways of working, and clear presentation. I make sure that they realise that they not only need to understand why they are doing something, but they must also be able to explain it clearly. Explaining a difficult concept to someone else can often be the best way to make yourself remember it. I am calm and patient, and English is my first language, all of which can help when a student finds something tricky.

I am consistently available for tutoring during weekday daytimes. I will sometimes be available in the evenings and at weekends, but this will be by arrangement and should not be relied upon.

Personal Description:
I am currently a master's student at the London School of Economics and Political Science, studying a Master of Science in History of International Relations. I completed my undergraduate degree in History at University College London receiving a high 2:1.
I went to school in Athens, at the St. Catherine's British Embassy School, receiving 44 out of 45 marks in my International Baccalaureate exams with 7/7 in all the subjects I now tutor.
I have always enjoyed working with young people, volunteering with children through various organisations such as Habitat for Humanity and Camden Libraries since the age of 16. I began tutoring and mentoring while at school and have continued to tutor or mentor in some form every year, working with young people from the ages of 3 to 19. I find the process of helping young people excel academically, very rewarding and genuinely enjoy working with young people.
I am a very friendly, sociable and approachable person with a creative flair, developed through a love for writing and performing. I put my students' academic needs first and strive to help them as best I can to achieve their desired marks.

Teaching Experience:

Summer Private Tutor- 3 tutees
Taught IB-Level and A-Level History, English, Biology, Geography, Theatre Arts - knowledge of different examination boards, including Edexcel, OCR and AQA.
Covered problem areas, explained and gave tips for homework, implemented homework and revision techniques, helped with essay structuring and research.
Went over past paper questions, the best ways to answer the questions and useful techniques and tips to follow. Set timed tasks and past papers to be completed in the class, which were marked for the next lesson.
Gave Extended Essay support: proof reading and improvement advice. Drew on my own my own extensive research skills.
Ensured tasks were varied for each lesson in order to engage the students and keep lessons interesting, upbeat and refreshing. Created a friendly, stress-free environment, focusing on trust and having some fun while learning.
Maintained open communication with the parents so that they were kept up to date with their children's progress.
All tutees boosted their marks in the subject areas taught. One student improved her mark in IB Higher Level History and English A1 from a predicted level 5 to a level 7. Another of the tutees boosted his mark in IB Standard Level Biology from a predicted level 4 to a level 6 and in Standard Level Geography from a predicted level 5 to 6. My other tutee received all A*s in his History, English and Biology A-levels.
Received great feedback from my coordinator about parents being pleased with their children's renewed interest in the subjects they were being tutored.

Tutoring with Team Up (previously the Young Educational Learning Programme - YELP) Nov-Spring 2011 - 5 tutees
Taught GCSE-level History and English Language and Literature.
Provided a straightforward, interesting study technique, particularly for English literature and poem/prose analysis, which seemed to be the most challenging area.
The aim of the programme was to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds, achieving mostly Cs or Ds but also Bs, to reach their full academic potential. I provided plenty of mentoring and focused on fostering a positive attitude towards learning and further education.
Helped students boost their final marks. One student jumped from a B to an A* in English Language and Literature, two from C to an A in History, and one from a D to a C in English.
Received very positive feedback from organisers of the programme, both for the improved results attained, but also for the friendly and fun environment created while teaching.

Tutoring IGCSE - 2008/2009 - 4 tutees
As part of the International Baccalaureate Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) programme, I tutored IGCSE English Language and Literature, History, Drama, Geography and Biology while in my last two years of school.
I mostly covered problem areas, focusing on past paper practice tasks during the hour-long lessons.
The results were positive, with all students achieving Bs and above in the tutored subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that what makes me a good tutor is the understanding that teaching is not just about laying down the facts. It is a process of developing a relationship of trust and engaging the student so that he or she genuinely enjoys learning about the subject. I find that once a student enjoys learning, it is much easier to encourage him or her to absorb the material, performing better in exams. I always try to establish this enthusiasm by varying my techniques, understanding my student's academic needs and keeping the atmosphere friendly yet focused. Every student is capable of boosting his or her marks with the right guidance and with practice. The right guidance involves looking at each student as an individual with specific academic requirements and needs and so I never use a sweeping approach to teaching, rather assessing each student's needs on a case by case basis.

Personal Description:
I'm a qualified teacher with experience in tutoring students from GCSE to undergraduate level. I received a Physics degree from Cardiff University, before getting married and moving to Sheffield to do my teacher training and a PhD.

Throughout this time I have been involved in teaching and tutoring, whether more formally in schools and at Sheffield University, or more informal private tuition to GCSE students and an engineering undergraduate.

My teaching seeks to develop understanding, whilst being enjoyable, and generally includes practical activities as well as written and oral work. In this respect I have spent many sessions in primary schools, secondary schools and public spaces (including the Winter Gardens, Sheffield) doing public Science teaching, demonstrations and promotions. This has helped me learn how to help everyone understand various aspects of Maths and Science, regardless of background or age.

Outside of teaching and tutoring I enjoy cycling and getting out into the Peak district.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst completing my teacher training I taught students from 12-18 and across the ability spectrum in all three Sciences.

Since then I have been involved in delivering tutorials and lectures at Sheffield University to undergraduate students in Physics and Maths. During this time I have privately tutored both undergraduate and GCSE students.

Tutoring Approach:

I vary my approach to tutoring depending on the needs, ability and age of the student, but in all cases I'm patient, friendly and encouraging.

When there is sufficient time, students are encouraged to complete some diagnostic work to establish both their ability and confidence across the curriculum. This allows the tutorials to be planned appropriately for each specific student.

Just before the exam, exam technique help and troubleshooting can make a significant difference to the students performance and confidence, even with just one or two sessions.

Personal Description:
I have just graduated from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School where I completed a postgraduate study in professional acting. Before that I was at the University of Bristol where I received a BA in German (2.1). I am offering both German and English literature help because I am confident in teaching both language and literature analysis.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored a GCSE student through their German oral and written exams a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I also worked as a theatre in education intern during my year abroad in Germany where I regularly taught workshops based on theatre and text.

Tutoring Approach:

I am really passionate about getting students excited about languages and I believe that the key to success in GCSE and A-Level is confidence. As well as going through school work, coursework and exam preparation I like to ensure that I include a 10 minute conversation in German at every lesson so that the pupil builds confidence in their ability to use vocabulary and grammar correctly. For English Literature I will provide help with essays, literature analysis (especially poetry and Shakespeare) so that students feel confident and prepared for their exams. I will also encourage my students to expand their overall knowledge of literature by reading widely and talking about what they have read. Depending on the needs of the student, I might expect them to keep a literature journal as well.

- Spanish Lesson -
Hello, I am a Spanish native speaker. I studied two Education Degrees in Spain and I would like to start to teach my language here.

Teaching Experience:

I work as Spanish Teacher Assitant in Reigate Grammar School.
Last year, I was Au pair and I looked after two children and I taught them Spanish.
I also can help adults with different goals like travelling, socializing, living abroad, any reason actually. The lessons are mostly focused on Speaking and Listening, in order to help prepare you to communicate well with native Spanish speakers. I also cover off Grammar, Vocabulary, Writing and Reading - these are all very important in becoming fluent in Spanish.
When I help kids to work towards their GCSE, AS and A2 Spanish exams, my lessons are more formal and structured. but whatever the lesson, I always try to make my students feel comfortable and relaxed, no matter what age they are.
My teaching style is relaxed and I aim to build your self-confidence in Spanish,
I also organize other activities related to Spanish language.
Moreover, I offer a wide range of prices and packs for every kind of needs and availability. (One to one and groups)

Tutoring Approach:

Don't hesitate to contact me, I'll try to do my best
Thank you very much for your attention.
See you!

Personal Description:
I have a Bachelor of Science with majors in Geography and Geology. After working in the field of geoscience for several years I wanted a new challenge and have a new passion for education.

Teaching Experience:

For the past year I have been working as an SEN Teaching Assistant in a secondary school. In this role I primarily teach maths. I also teach geography, science and English.

There is a wide variety in the learning needs of my individual students. This has given me an understanding of how to tailor learning to the needs of an individual student.

The mid-level GCSE Mathematics class that I assist attained a 97% pass-rate in GCSE Higher Mathematics. Two year 10 SEN students that I have worked closely with both received a C mark in GCSE statistics, after showing vast improvement over the academic year.

During the previous school year I tutored an A Level geography student. She received an A grade in her final exam. I also tutored two year 11 mathematics students who received a B and C grade respectively.

During my time in third and fourth year at university I tutored several first year geology students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student has the potential to achieve the grade that they are aiming for. In a lot cases though their learning needs to be supported and nurtured in the right way to help them achieve this.

I aim to identify strengths and weaknesses that each individual student possesses. By helping a student consolidate their strengths and by tackling their weaknesses head on I believe that I can help them improve markedly in a short period of time. I also aim to help a student put into place new skills that will help them improve their level of independence while learning. These skills are important to learn and are relevant in many aspects of life.

8 years of teaching experience in Greece and the UK, privately and in schools, all levels of English and Greek, including English Literature and IELTS preparation. I have worked both with children and adults, especially second generation Greeks and Cypriots.

Tutoring Approach:

Every lesson is tailored to the needs of the student. The use of specific handbooks is determined by each client's desires and needs. Extra material provided by the teacher. To support, encourage and help the student achieve his or her goals has always been my number one objective when teaching.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and enthusiastic Oxbridge graduate with a Masters in Earth Sciences (Geology).

Since 2014 I have been working as a Geoscientist in a consultancy, which has provided me with solid communication skills when discussing technical work.

Teaching Experience:

In my last year of school I took part in a scheme which involved acting as a teaching assistant to year 8 students. I would spend a couple of hours each week supporting and helping students with in a variety of classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I apply the tutoring methodology I experienced during Oxford. This involves encouraging students to arrive at conclusions themselves rather than tell them the answers to each question. This builds up a deeper understanding of the topics and will allow them to enter the exam room with the confidence of knowing they possess all the information they need to answer any question which may come up, rather than worrying in case this years paper differs from the examples they have worked through.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Jonathan and I recently graduated from the University of Exeter studying Business and Management. I speak 4 languages, am passionate about maths and business, and have extensive experience in 1 on 1 tutoring!

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of tutoring experience and currently have a number of clients whom I teach Maths (Primary - GCSE) or German (Secondary - A-Level). Furthermore, I help run weekly GCSE revision sessions at a local school.

I have also run sessions for adult learners wanting to improve their German skills. In these sessions - which were often over skype - I was able to knowledge of the German language and culture to prepare tutees for upcoming exams, job interviews, or travels.

My experience, my academic background, and my teaching style make me an ideal tutor for anyone who wants to excel!

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring focuses on two main areas. Firstly, I aim to build up confidence. From experience, many students have the capacity to excel, but low confidence in often over-crowded or intimidating classroom environment limits their learning potential. That is why my aim is to identify the tutee's strengths and prove to them that they already know a lot more than they think!
Secondly, I identify the key areas of improvement and help develop these in structured lessons. Giving tutees the possibility to ask questions in an informal environment and getting students to explain concepts back to the tutor are both great methods to develop the areas of improvement.

My tailored sessions help find your strengths, improve your weaknesses, and ultimately succeed!
