Personal Description:
I am a 31 year-old prize-winning Masters graduate in Mathematics from Oxford University, and I also hold Top Candidate Notifications for my performances in A-level maths and further maths, and another such notification for my performance in GCSE Statistics. I am in my eighth year of tutoring full-time.

I offer tuition in mathematics at each of the following levels: KS3/GCSE/AS/A2/AEA/MAT/Oxbridge Interview Practice/STEP. I have a CRB Enhanced Disclosure.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven full years experience as a full-time private tutor. My role addresses the pitfalls of a mainstream education by truly individualising it, and is perfected through thousands of hours of experience of striving to achieve precisely that. My thirst for knowledge has allowed me to develop a true understanding of mathematical concepts: I have frequently played the role of the consultant throughout my mathematical career, have been able to help my peers and students avoid the pitfalls usually associated with difficult ideas and am able to explain things from numerous angles.

Tutoring Approach:

Traversing the mathematical landscape is an art; it can be a very uncomfortable environment for some. I find it so important to make my students feel at ease and to find confidence in their maths and so important to be friendly and patient. I am not a suited, booted assessor, nor old-school, to be frank! The feedback I've received indicates that I am very successful in creating a supportive atmosphere that encourages discussion, openness and good effort.

As well as engaging with students in this manner, my aim as a maths tutor is to get my students to 'think mathematically'; to uncover the inherent simplicity in methods and concepts and to truly understand what is being worked with. It is my business to focus thought, prevent confusion and stimulate the development of good ideas. I employ illuminating explanations and navigate sticking points, and as a result maths should be considerably easier to handle under my guidance.

As well as offering support for those with difficulties or specific grade aspirations at standard levels, I can also challenge the very able as intensely as they could hope for, introducing them to the mindset, rigour and practise required for the more challenging AEA and STEP papers. At university I was lucky enough to find myself one to whom others turned with maths troubles: I have been depended on to explain advanced maths effectively for years. I am sure this accounts for two more areas of particularly positive feedback I've received as a tutor: in explaining concepts and in effectively dealing with problems as they arise.

I provide tuition either at my home in central Cheltenham, or at the homes of students within a 30-mile radius of it (dependent on particular location).

I am here to provide a complete teaching experience that in addition to ironing out difficulties and providing excellent exam preparation as matter of course, at no extra effort on the part of the student introduces them to the thought processes and insights of the professional mathematician. I have the STRONGEST sense of duty of care to my students and want every one who I work with to exceed their own expectations and the expectations of others and to walk away feeling truly proud of their achievements.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom since December 2009. I am originally from Kumamoto, where I completed a training course at the EII Japanese Language Centre. I have now been teaching Japanese to students of all levels for nearly ten years.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching Japanese in Kumamoto, Japan 10 years ago. I teach both children and adults and from absolute beginners to advanced level students. After moving to England I've been teaching from my home.

I also have 8 years experience of teaching online using Skype and an interactive whiteboard for students all over the world. I have worked for a major Japanese online school for 2 years.

I have taught students who aim to take the JLPT exam, the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (from the1st to 5th grade), and who are studying for The Duke of Edinburgh award.

I have also helped business people who are planning to work for Japanese companies.

My lesson fees are as follows:

Face-to-face lessons

Private Lessons : 25 for a one hour individual lesson (at my home)

Group Lessons
2 people : 20 per person for a one hour lesson (at my home)
3 or more people : Please enquire about availability (at a public venue)
3 people : 18 per person for a one hour lesson
4-5 people : 15 per person for a one hour lesson
6-8 people : 13 per person for a one hour lesson

You can take group lessons with your friends or family members. Discounted lesson rates are available if you can collect a group of between 2 and 8 people.

Online lessons

Private lessons :
20 for a 50 minute individual lesson
25 for a 60 minute individual lesson

Group Lessons

6-8 people : 13 per person for a 50 minute lesson / 15 per person for a 60 minute lesson

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by introducing essential sentence patterns and teaching how to use them in practise conversations. I use role-play to make the conversations real and teach how to speak Japanese naturally. You will soon realise my lessons are completely different from normal language studies at school and find that my method is both practical and effective.

Personal Description:
I recently stepped down as Head of German at the secondary school in Kidderminster, where I have led the German Department since 1995. I now work as a German classroom teacher. My decision to step down was based on the fact that I got married in July last year and now have to travel a considerable distance to my school. During my time as Head of Department, the results at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A2 have improved considerably. The pass rate for GCSE German has been approximately 80% for several years. This is higher than the national average and was based on 3 years of study to GCSE. Many pupils achieve top A*, A and B grades. The pass rate at AS and A2 has also been excellent with pupils achieving As, Bs and Cs. Former pupils have gone on to study languages at top-ranking universities and some have returned to the school in a teaching capacity for Modern Languages.

I have also worked as a tutor in Further Education teaching adults from aged 20 - 80 years from beginner's up to GCSE type work.

I am have friends in Germany and visit on a regular basis and keep up to date with new teaching ideas via the MFL Resources Forum.

I am interested in using a range of teaching strategies and personalising learning to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my classroom.

Exchanges and visits to Germany have been given prominence during my time as Head of Department.

I qualified as a teacher in my 30s following a successful career in industry as a PA and Company Translator for a German machine tool company. I have lived in Germany for a year on two different occasions. At both times, I worked for a German employer.

Teaching Experience:

Beginners' German (Key stage 3 and adults)
GCSE German
AS German
A2 German

I have experience as an oral examiner at GCSE, AS and A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be interested in understanding what the tutee required, using relevant materials and developing teaching strategies tailor-made to suit my tutee's needs.

I currently use a range of teaching strategies and personalise learning in my school classroom to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my teaching.

Personal Description:
I am a studious and hardworking student currently in Year 12. I am undertaking 5 A Level Subjects; Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History and Physics and attend Sir Thomas Rich's Grammar School in Gloucester. My hobbies include music (in which I play Baritone, Piano, Saxophone and some percussion), basketball and snooker.

I am academically minded and came out of GCSE's with all A*'s. In the future, I am looking to study economics at University in the United States.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at the local KUMON maths and English centre. I work a few hours each week and my job involves giving students guidance on how to complete maths and English problems. My specialty is maths and I am one of the most advanced mathematicians in the tutoring staff. I have privately tutored my sister in maths in preparation for the 11+ and now that she is in year 7, I continue to assist her with mathematics and the other subjects which she is taking.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be tailored to the needs of individuals. For example, a student who is highly capable will take a more laid back approach in which I will try to get the student to work out mathematical concepts, or physical concepts on their own. However, if a student is struggling with a particular topic, then I will take a more guiding role and assist the student in a more direct way.

Fortunately, I have received a huge amount of information regarding exam technique; I know all of the tricks which come up in Maths Exams having completed a huge amount of past papers. In addition, I can teach study skills to help my students achieve the very best results available.

I believe that my job as a tutor is not to force principles on students as law, but for them to understand how the principles have been derived. If you can understand where something has come from, it makes it much easier to remember and apply when it comes to an exam.

Evidence suggests that teaching is much more effective when a student can connect with their teacher. Thus, I believe that I would be an ideal tutor because I will be more able to empathise with the student. Moreover, since I am still in full time education, my hours will closely align to students and I will be available at all times online in order to assist with any difficulties a student is facing.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from the University of Warwick with a B.A. in politics. I have an excellent academic record; I received firsts in three of the eight modules that made up my degree, my second year work was praised for its excellence by the examinations board and my contributions to seminars were praised by lecturers. Prior to this I completed A-levels in economics, history and politics (all at grade A) at Pate's Grammar School. I have a comprehensive knowledge of and passion for the subject area; I have had work experience with the BBC's Sunday Politics and am the author the "Young Citizens Agenda for the UK".

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience assisting younger family members with GCSE and A-level work. I was the person to come to at school for A-level politics advice.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work to understand the specific needs of the individual tutee. This will involve closely examining the syllabus of the specific course which they are undertaking set against what they need to do to produce work that will get into the better grade boundaries. This will require working with the tutee to understand their own learning style so they are able to do this. But most importantly I hope to generate an genuine enthusiasm for politics and current affairs.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Kirsten I am a BSc Psychology graduate from the University of Bristol. I am presently studying as a postgraduate in Mental Health Nursing.
I am looking for both secondary school level science/maths/English tutoring roles, adult/undergraduate Psychology instruction as well as any study skill tuition including the 11+ exam.
I am a confident, professional person who is outgoing and highly passionate about education.

I have a large amount of tutoring experience across age/qualification levels, with exceptional outcomes for my tutees in terms of results and confidence. I have had 11 tutees, all of whom improved by 2 grades or more under my tuition; one of whom acheived 98% in their Psychology A-level following combined Psychology and study skills tuition.

I am a fully qualified driver and own a car, being happy to tutor after school at pupils' homes within the Cheltenham and Gloucester area.
Tutoring in Cheltenham or further afield incurs a small petrol charge (3 Cheltenham, 5 further afield).

FOR ONLINE TUTORING - please knock 2.50 per hour off the stated price, but I will ask the admin fee for this site is paid by the tutee.

I will happily provide one-off online sessions 30mins+ to cover individual topics or help with essays/revision. These sessions will be charged at 2.50 less per hour for all subjects.
I will also happily do whole day sessions which so far most individuals have opted to use as multi-subject revision for upcoming exams.

I hold a current DBS certificate on the government update service open for general use and would be happy to supply this to parents/prospective tutees.

Teaching Experience:

As stated above I have had 11 tutees from schools in Oxford, Cheltenham and Gloucester (including the grammar schools), all 4 of my current students are girls studying for a mixture of subjects at both GCSE and A-level. I have had 1 further tutee study with me for the 11+ exam. One of my current tutees is online and we use a combination of skype, dropbox and online whiteboard to facilitate sessions.

During my time at school I was an instructor in the cadets, teaching basic first aid, shooting and RAF syllabus for 3 years to cadets aged 12-18. I have since returned and am now an adult instructor in both the CCF and outdoor education department.

I also have work experience in nursery settings and previous volunteer experience working at a special needs preschool in Cheltenham and would be happy to tutor children with additional needs. My degree specialty is in dyslexia and I am able to provide tailored material, techniques and specialist guidance for individuals with this educational need.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is just to be as flexible as needed, and to tailor my teaching style to the individual.

Whilst my Psychology background means I come with the knowledge of what constitutes an effective learning/revision technique; I appreciate individual differences in style.

I also appreciate that everybody has a different experience and level of skill with technology. Whilst I would aspire to include interactive learning tools that can be extended outside of our sessions, I understand that this is not for everyone and will happily tutor in a more conventional style if this means my student can take more away from our time. Through online access I provide lots of revision and syllabus materials to all my tutees.

At the heart of my tutoring style is to accept that often a lack of understanding comes not from a lack of ability in a subject, but from the explanation that has been given being unsuited to that person. I focus on breaking concepts down to simple and memorable steps/parts and reviewing them until a full understanding is reached. I also feel it is very important not just to have a piece of knowledge, but to both understand WHY something is how it is and HOW it can be applied across subjects/concepts.

Personal Description:
I have been a personal tutor for over six years, building up a rapport with each individual and their family to ensure best results. My tutoring experience spans from children aged 4 years to adults aged 44 years, with varying degrees of motivation, interest and abilities. I have tutored 16 pupils to date, with differing levels of intensity; some required 2 hours a week for the 10 weeks prior to their exam, while others required an hour a week over 3 years to boost their knowledge and confidence.

Due to my high interest in supporting others, I chose a career path as a Speech and Language Therapist, and I qualified in this esteemed profession 5 years ago. On a daily basis I work with children from pre-school age right up to young adults, in a range of settings from special needs schools and mainstream schools, to community clinics and home visits. I am highly passionate about helping all I support to work together to reach their potential.

I am a genuinely caring and generous person and I am more than capable of sharing my passion for learning to anyone I work with, including those with additional needs.

Teaching Experience:

Through my job as a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist I work with children of all cognitive abilities on a one-to-one level to improve their communication and language skills. The work I do coincides with the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage, and I work with parents and teachers to set individualised targets, which is similar to the tutoring world.

Prior to commencing this career path, I worked as a special needs assistant at a primary school. On a daily basis I was required to give additional support on a one-to-one basis to children who struggled in the (often) large classroom, by working through the literacy or numeracy curriculum at their own pace. I was also relied upon to support in assigned classrooms through supervising children while working on a task, or taking groups of children for reading. Working in a school ensured that I keep current my knowledge of Educational and National Curriculum issues.

From June-August 2011, I travelled to Pennsylvania, USA, to work as a Speech and Language Therapist at a summer camp for children with special needs (age range 7-20). I was recommended for this job due to my extensive experience and my friendly positive nature. The experience of living and working with children and teens with individual needs and accompanying challenging behaviours highlighted the importance of taking a flexible holistic approach when assessing skills, implementing support and evaluating improvements.

In June 2009, I participated in the Student Associate Scheme organised by the University of Manchester. This involved intensive teacher training and then carrying out a block placement of three weeks within two schools teaching and assisting in core subjects e.g. Mathematics and English. I worked with two children in particular who struggled in these subjects and I helped improve their numeracy and literacy skills by adapting their learning technique to suit their individual needs.

Tutoring Approach:

For over six years I have tutored various subjects in three areas of the UK, including two major cities. I have assisted students of varying ages, abilities and additional needs including Dyslexia, Autism and Specific Language Impairment - from early years pupils to mature students. I find that tutees benefit from the one-to-one focus they are given, and the individualised plans we work from enforces enhancement of their current knowledge in their chosen subject areas.

I always ensure a person-centred approach is achieved when tutoring. Each tutee learns through different techniques and at different speeds so I develop my tutoring level and scope to suit the individuals needs. I tutored three children for 2013's 'Transfer Test' (Northern Ireland's Grammar School intake assessment) and the results confirmed that this approach is effective, as all sitting the demanding test passed with flying colours, with two getting into Northern Ireland's top Grammar School.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified Industrial Engineer from University College Galway, Ireland (1978)
I qualified as a secondary school teacher from King's College London (2000).
I have worked as an IT developer for many years.
I have worked in Hamburg and speak fluent German.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in inner London state secondary schools for ten years.
I have taught mathematics at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 to pupils over the entire ability range.
I have taught Pure, Statistics and Mechanics to A-Level pupils
I have also tutored extensively over a number of years.

Tutoring Approach:

Most pupils are focused on a particular examination and I never lose sight of this fact.
However, I like to demonstrate how mathematics is applied in the real world.
I am especially interested in using software such as Cabri, Autograph, Microsoft Excel etc to demonstrate mathematical points.
I have considerable knowledge of online both free and subscription mathematical websites.
This helps pupils between lessons to either prepare for a future lesson or build up confidence in topics already covered. I have extensive experience of KS3, KS4 and KS5 examination systems.

Personal Description:
I'm an extremely strong mathematician, scoring top grades through school (including scoring 300/300 in my AS Level Further Maths), and went on to a heavily maths-based degree in Civil Engineering with Management. I'm a GCSE Maths Examiner, so I know exactly what is required to get your target grade.

Aside from teaching Maths, I've had a wide range of experiences - I've helped set up an community project in my friend's village in Tanzania and have taught some of our sponsored students out there.

I'm currently the primary carer for my baby daughter in the week, so I am doing tutoring around this in the evenings and weekend when my wife is home from work.

Teaching Experience:

* Teaching and working with young people as a volunteer or professionally since 2004.

* Qualified as a Maths teacher in 2006, and taught in numerous secondary schools, ranging from very challenging schools through to a high performing grammar school and a private school (including teaching IGCSE as well as normal GCSE).

* Have taught the full ability range from low ability Year 7 through to A Level Further Maths.

* GCSE Maths Examiner since March 2012.

* Tutoring 9-18 year olds since April 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm keen to help pupils understand how maths works, and not simply learn a standard set of instructions to follow to reach the "right" answer.

With the new changes coming to Maths GCSE, having a good understanding is more important than ever - students simply cannot get by on rote-learning the method alone any more. Students need to be able to explain their answer clearly, and I make sure I incorporate this into my lessons.

Of course, approach will vary substantially depending on the student.

Students who are very close to their exams will need more focus on how to get the best result.

With younger students there will be more opportunity to focus on their understanding, and exploring how Maths works. I try to avoid simply teaching "How To Get The Right Answer To This Particular Type Of Exam Question", which might get them through tests in the short term, but is rather less helpful to them in the long term.

As a tutor I'd be choosing the most appropriate approach for the student.

Although I specialise in Maths, I am more than comfortable with science, and can also help students up to secondary school level in this subject. I will also do English with Maths at primary level.

GROUP DISCOUNTS:
* 5 discount per student if working in a pair.
* 10 discount per student in groups of 3 or more.

Personal Description:
I am French but have lived in Britain for years (both my children, who are in their 20's, were born here). I have also lived and worked in Spain and am fluent in the language. I then taught adults in a language school (Inlingua) in Germany, Italy and London. I came back to this country and got a job in a private school where I was the teacher in charge of Spanish. After working in this school for 21 years, I have just retired but miss the excitement of teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught languages all my life, first in a Welsh comprehensive school (for 8 years), then abroad. In Spain, I taught French and English in a primary school and I then taught adults French, Spanish and English as a foreign language for Inlingua. When I returned to Britain, I taught French and Spanish to GCSE and A level in a private school. I have just retired after 21 years there and I now help a private Open University student. I enjoy teaching and would like to do more tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

As I have a wide experience of teaching languages, I am able to use different kinds of approach to language learning and can apply the best suited one for each student. I enjoy teaching linguistially minded student as well as those who find it a challenge to learn a foreign language. Through working for a long time in the Bristish educational system, I am aware of the requirements of different GCSE and A levels examination boards. From the student's point of view, I think that learning a foreign language should be fun but also challenging and rewarding.
