Personal Description:
HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND SUCCESSFUL TUTOR WITH 8 YEARS TEACHING AND TUTORING EXPERIENCE.

I have a 1st Class Hons degree in Biology from Imperial College London and a PGCE from Kings College London.
I have extensive assessment experience including as an examiner for OCR, giving me an excellent insight into what students actually get the marks for at GCSE and how to answer questions successfully.

I have wide experience in teaching Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (ages 11-18) and have been consistently graded either Good or Outstanding in my lessons.

Additionally, I have tutored a number of primary students to raise confidence or prepare them for secondary school.

I am passionate about my subject and am keen to pass this on to my students.

I have a record of excellent results for students in all 3 sciences and a proven track record at getting pupils to their target grade or better.

Teaching Experience:

KS3 Science and maths
KS4 Triple and double science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology, GCSE and BTEC)
KS5 Biology

I have taught for 8 years in London and Bristol, at key stage 3, 4 and 5 for both double award and triple science GCSE and A level for biology which is my main specialist subject.

I have been graded as outstanding in the majority of my lesson observations over my teaching career and have an excellent record of achievement with all of my classes.

I am very experienced in tutoring science and confidently offer maths as an additional subject to GCSE.

I am currently teaching at School in Bristol where I am teaching KS3, KS4 Science (both the triple and the double award) and A level biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tutor according to individuals needs. I am happy to work through homework, coursework and projects and to help students revise, depending on their requirements for that session, although I will not simply give out the answers but will help them work them out.
I am flexible with my tutoring and am happy to do it weekly or more or less regularly depending on what is is desired, as I only accept a few students at a time, in order to fully cater for my students.

I aim to build a relationship with my students where they are happy to ask any and all questions and lead their own learning in this way. I find that the range of methods and resources I have acquired as a qualified teacher help me to tutor to the individual needs of the student. I am more than happy to adapt methods of learning to assist students learning.

I am usually able to bring a good range of resources but request that pupils provide their school work and books so I can make sure I am teaching the right things.

Personal Description:
I am a 45 year old lady residing in Ashford, Kent. I originally come from Africa and have been in England for 10 years now. I trained as a primary school teacher but resigned after 16 years mainly because I wanted to travel and broaden my experiences. My hobbies are reading and writing (for leisure), travelling and sightseeing, aerobics and swimming. I could however easily call teaching one of my hobbies because I always find myself teaching people wherever I go!

Teaching Experience:

I was a primary school teacher for 16 years but I also did private tutoring as a sideline. I taught English to the age group 9-10years and outside working hours I taught adult literacy classes. I think I did well because I always found myself with so many private students to teach that sometimes it was hard to cope . All the same I enjoyed every minute of it. I have also recently qualified as an EFL teacher and am hoping to start soon.

Tutoring Approach:

When I meet a student for the first time I always believe in taking time to know them. By this I mean their well being and /or state of mind. For example, if a student has come to class only because someone has insisted, then learning will be a chore. Or if they have personal problems, or they are hungry, tired or ill then we will not get very far. So I will take a few minutes to chat and get to know their state of mind as well as reassure them before we start and if there is anything I can do to settle them then that is what I will do first. I am saying this with a view to teaching adults because that is what I hope to do. I also believe in teaching in a very relaxed environment that is conducive to learning so I always try and get rid of all distractions before we start. I have been known to be a good teacher and I hope I will continue with my good style and reputation.

Personal Description:
My name is Phoebe, I'm a native Chinese speaker, who moved to England 12 years ago, I am now a British Citizen and have lived in Chesham for 8 years. I gained my MBA at The University of Leicester in 2002. My husband is British and is a Business Manager. We have a 8 years old daughter, called Annabel and a 2 years old daughter called Bella.

Personal Description:
I am a final year PhD researcher in Cambridge University, studying Biotechnology. My academic qualifications include:

Chemistry (HL): 6

- GCSE (12 A* + A), Bexley Grammar School (2006)

What sets me apart from other tutors?

1) I have tutored a large number of students on a one-to-one basis for over 5 years, and they all went on to achieve their desired grades.
2) I am quite flexible in when I can offer lessons.
3) I am very flexible in what I teach, as I can cover all Sciences and Maths, so you don't need to find 2 or 3 different tutors!
4) I am quite young, which helps me see the problem from the student's perspective, since it wasn't that long ago when I was in their position.
5) I am able to tutor at GCSE level, A-Level or International Baccalaureate.

Since secondary school, Maths and the Sciences have always been my strengths, and I am lucky to have been able to apply both areas in my past and present degrees.
Besides English, I can speak Cantonese Chinese fluently, and a little bit of Mandarin Chinese.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past 5 years, I have tutored a variety of pupils, and every time the grades they end up obtaining have met or exceeded their targets.
Overall I have accumulated over 2000 hours of personal tuition.

I have experience with the Edexcel, OCR and AQA exam boards and can provide my students with relevant study materials.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide a friendly and informal environment. I usually let the student control the pace of the lesson by asking them to interrupt me if we arrive at a topic they find difficult.

Every student is different and my teaching style is adapted to their individual needs once we have identified their weaknesses.
I believe understanding is the best approach to learning and teaching. There's no point in just memorising things if you don't understand where they came from. I explain things in such a way that it is easy to understand, and I am very patient.

If the student has learnt something in school they didn't quite understand, I can go over the topic again with them during our lesson.
If the student understood everything in school, I can teach them new topics to prepare them for when they learn that topic in school.
Lastly, near exam times, I can offer intense exam revision and exam paper practice.

Below is a selection of feedback I have received on another tuition agency website.

He is punctual, reliable and kind. I would surely recommend him to everyone who has problems with science or needs to fill the gaps.
-----------------------------------------
From Renata (5/5): (GCSE Biology) Henry was an excellent Maths and Physics tutor (GCSE). He was very thorough in covering the syllabus, quick to spot areas that needed focused attention and precise in his explanations. Our son rapidly gained confidence in his ability in these subjects and achieved really good grades with Henry's help (A* and A). We also found Henry extremely reliable. He was always punctual and courteous and quick to respond to email messages. We have just contacted him again for some A Level Maths tuition and really pleased that he was available.

He writes down any formulae or equations I need to know which I can come back to at any time, which I find is very useful. He is both efficient and proficient. I highly recommend him to anybody looking for a tutor in all the sciences and Maths.
-----------------------------------------
From Wendy (5/5): (A-Level Maths) Henry has proved to be punctual, reliable, conscientious and prepared. He has adapted quickly to our needs and requirements.

Personal Description:
I have many thousands of hours tutoring experience following a career in the telecommunications industry. I am also a qualified Flying Instructor, and have been trained to effectively deliver one-to-one tuition.

I have always enjoyed helping people to achieve their goals and will go the extra mile to ensure the success of my students.

I am passionate about the choice of physics and engineering as a career. Without physics there would be no iPhones, games consoles, or the internet!

Teaching Experience:

Besides being an experienced tutor of at up to A-level standar I have been a visiting lecturer to both Aston and Coventry Universities.

I am a qualified flying instructor so I am very experienced in providing one-to-one tuition to students with a range of abilities and I have been trained to teach in a difficult environment (an aircraft).

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and understanding teacher with experience of teaching a wide cross-section of pupils and am familiar with many of the common stumbling blocks pupils encounter when studying physics in particular.

Wherever possible I try to use the experiences that I have gained during my career to provide real life examples and case studies and to demonstrate that physics is fun!

Personal Description:
I am married with three children and seven grandchildren. I like to keep fit and attend a local gym regularly. I have been involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme as an instructor and assessor and I am an active member of the Combined Cadet Force (Royal Navy Section).
Needless to say I am CRB checked. The most recent one dated last year. These last for three years.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully taught mathematics in schools in Nottingham, Surrey, Hampshire and Lancashire over the past twenty years. I took early retirement this summer from teaching but am still an examiner for GCSE higher paper.

During those years, I have had considerable success in helping my students to achieve A*'s in mathematics and statistics and have also been able to give additional help to some students to enable them to improve their grades. In addition to this, I have taught students who were struggling with some aspects of mathematics and been able to give them an alternative approach, thus helping them to a greater understanding of the topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to be able to get to know exactly what the tutee's problems are in mathematics and will usually ask to see some of their work in order to get a starting point from which to build. It might be that they are only struggling in one particular area and that's fine, I can help them with that, or they may need some consolidation;bringing all the topics into play in order to solve complex problems more easily and therefore building confidence.
I can supply worksheets or will work from their own textbook if they prefer. I usually set homework for them to work on before the next session.

Personal Description:
Phd Chemistry graduate, Current A level Chemistry teacher and Edexcel examiner

I have always enjoyed science from an early age. This is what led me to study for a PhD in Chemistry. This enthusiasm for science definitely comes across in my teaching because I think it is the first step in engaging and enthusing pupils about science.

I am a calm and patient teacher. My belief is that there is no such thing as someone who can't do science. Only that the right approach has not been found yet.

Teaching Experience:

Over 4 years tutoring and teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

Generally, in the first session I aim to find out what exactly the pupil is struggling with. Subsequent sessions can then be tailored to fit these needs. This will involve lots of practice on the problem areas so that the pupil becomes comfortable with it.

Personal Description:
I am a French national who has been living in the UK for 4 years and tutoring for much of that time. I graduated in Business Communications from the University of Nancy in 2012.

I have given private tutoring for four years and also have worked for a langage company which allowed me to be sent into different schools to do some covering.

Currently working as a French tutor at King's School, Canterbury, I also enjoy tutoring privately because the atmosphere and the relation is totally different. Indeed, there is less pressure, more fun.

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide teaching experience as I have worked privately, for a language company and finally for a school.
I can teach from 3 years old to any age, or follow the school program and teach the elements needed to get a high grade. But I can also offer a lesson about what you need. For example I had a retired couple who wanted to spend their retirement in France so our lessons were about how to survive and express the everyday life needs in French.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring means ''learning with pleasure'' for me. That means that my aims are to make the student enjoy the lesson without having to just ''learn by heart''. I had to tutor some students just after their school day so I wanted it to be positively different.

For casual learners I take a flexible approach with the first focus on confidence in speaking, but if the student has specific exam needs I can tailor the lesson towards his/her goal, with more structured grammar lessons if necessary (after years of grammar lessons during my French schooling!). I never forget that I am a the ''French speaking guide'' and the student is the pilot.

Personal Description:
I studied Modern Languages (French and German) at Magdalen College, Oxford and went on to train as an actor at Central School of Speech and Drama. I can offer classes in beginners conversation for French and German as well as coaching for GCSE and A-level. In addition, I can help students create revision timetables to improve study skills and can offer drama tuition for drama school applicants or to improve confidence and general presentation skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for French, German and English with Home Tutors for the past 7 years and have had an excellent success rate with students achieving their desired grades at GCSE and A-level. I also co-wrote and ran the German Through Music and Drama course at Watford Grammar School for Year 10 Gifted and Talented students.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible and am reliable, punctual and well-organised. In the first lesson, I ask the tutees and parents exactly what they are hoping to gain from private tuition so that we can work together towards achieving those goals. It's also useful to get hold of a copy of the syllabus and/or class textbooks that the tutee is working from in school so that we can remain on target, tackle homework together and also add supplementary activities that reinforce their course work.

Personal Description:
As a professional writer with a range of credits in tv and radio (Eastenders, Holby City, The Bill), I gained experience of working with schools and colleges to develop the literacy skills of learners of all ages. Perhaps uniquely, I am also a fully-qualified Maths teacher equipped with the subject knowledge to teach to A-level. Aside from Maths and English, I occasionally teach guitar and ukelele and play in a couple of local bands. Though there is no escaping hard work, I think learning should be fun. As both a parent and a teacher, I believe you get the best out people (young people included!) if you listen, and try to see the world from their point of view.

Teaching Experience:

I have recent experience of teaching in both state and independent schools, but appreciate not everyone thrives in these environments.

Tutoring Approach:

Without personalised support from a sympathetic expert who can focus on and understand their needs, many young learners find themselves lost or feeling they are not reaching their full potential. As a tutor, I aim to give that support, in a relaxed and fun environment. I aim to identify and overcome any fears that may be blocking progress. Starting from individual interests, enthusiasms and motivations, whilst building on existing skills of which they may not be aware, I aim to develop the confidence and feelings of success that ultimately lead to achievement.

Personal Description:
I'm a graduate from the School of Oriental and African Studies, having completed a BA [Hons] in Religion and Politics. I intensively studied religions from around, philosophy and ethics, alongside politics and law. Whilst studying, I learned the Urdu language to assist me with understanding the culture and politics of Pakistan. This has proven to be highly useful when tutoring - I can work with students whose first or native language is Urdu and teach them English and other subjects. I'm an open minding, caring young woman whose ambition is to develop others strengths. As someone who communicates well and has a flexible working approach, I can teach both children and adults and those with learning difficulties.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL - Teaching English as a Foreign Language
Teaching English to fellow students at university whose native language was foreign to the UK
Mentoring young people with learning difficulties
Teaching English to adults
Teaching the laws of the UK [In particular the welfare benefits system and the social/private housing sector to those wishing to learn about their rights in Britain.

Tutoring Approach:

A patient, calm approach to learning. Pro-active lessons in English with lots of conversational practice. I have come to understand that the best way to teach and learn a new language is to be in a constant state of every day conversation. My lessons are informative yet casual and put no pressure on the individual to learn quickly. Each student has an individual learning style, and some will be quicker than others in picking up English. I work patiently with the student and develop lessons which are tailored to each student.

In terms of teaching advanced subjects, such as religion and politics, my teaching style is detail oriented and literature focused. Each week we will focus on a new topic or text and I will provide various resources for you to look at in your own time. The following week we will dicuss these in the style of a university tutoring session.

I can assist you with any homework or coursework needs and can offer academic advice.
