Personal Description:
I am mum to two boys, both who have flown the nest. I miss them greatly now that they are based in London but try to visit as much as I can. I love to shop and also exercise, especially pilates. Oh and I do love to cook!

Teaching Experience:

I studied at Dundee College of Education where I gained a Diploma in Primary Education. This was a three year course. I then took another Certificate in Early Years. After leaving College, I taught in both the state and private primary sector. I left teaching to have my children and then to nurse my youngest child who was quite sick for a few years. Once his health was better, I started working as a tutor from home or going to the client's house to tutor. I now tutor seven days a week. I have experience in Maths, Language, Phonics and Grammar. I also tutor children in preparation for entrance exams in to the independent sector, which includes Verbal, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths, Language and Spelling. The children I have tutored have all had great success, many going forward for a scholarship.
I have an online Dyslexia touch type programme which has had tremendous success. Many children, with the school's permission , come to be tutored within school hours.

Tutoring Approach:

I always believe that the child should feel comfortable with the person they are being tutored by and build up a good relationship. Tutoring is not only about helping the child to succeed but also for them to gain confidence and self belief. I have various methods of tutoring from written work, reading and oral work. I also have a computer available where we can work from. eg online games After each lesson, I give the child homework to be completed for the next lesson.

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.

Angela now paints full-time and exhibits in London & the South and recently in Rome & Miami.

Art summer school for children at my barn studio 1991

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 a TEFL teacher with a university degree (Music) and am from London. In my day job I work in a music company. I also teach English to foreign students in London, having worked for 2 years in British Council accredited language schools both in London and Portugal. I am a very friendly person and really enjoy teaching any age group.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught TEFL in language schools for two years, and have given private tuition in English and in Music for 9 years for all levels of learners. I have taught English at all levels from Beginner to Advanced, plus Business English and conversation classes. I have taught children as young as 6, all the way up to adults, and vary my teaching method according to the age group I am working with.

I have a Music degree and play and teach the Recorder, as well as giving lessons in music Theory. I used to work for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in the syllabus department, so have great insider knowledge about music exams. Additionally, I also used to mark Theory papers, so know what examiners are looking for.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to be as learner-centred as possible in my teaching. First I will conduct a needs analysis to assess a potential student's level and to identify the areas in which they would like to improve and their preferred learning methods. I encourage my students to actively participate in my lessons - it will not just be me talking. I aim to make lessons fun and engaging, as I believe that students learn more when they are interested in the material given.

Teaching Experience:

I have also many years of experience teaching in Chemistry . I am much at ease with all the exam board, AQA, EdExcel, OCR

my first action is to find out where the student stand, what are his strengths and weaknesses. this is done my asking oral questions or by devising a proper revision questions. after knowing this, i will devise a plan depending n their capabilities. for weaker pupils, a thorough revision will be done so as to strengthen their foundation knowledge. and for brighter students, exam papers will be given to them to have a good practice. revision as well will be performed. this wil be done mainly when correcting the papers and working out specimen papers

Personal Description:
Highly motivated and enthusiastic Mechanical Engineering Masters Graduate from one of the leading University in London (Queen Mary University). I have achieved a 1st Class in the MEng course and I have studied many modules relevant to high level Maths and Physics. Furthermore, during my course I have achieved a 1st class in all the Maths modules. Prior to my Degree, I completed A levels in Maths, Further maths, Physics and French.
I currently work at the Bank of England as a Project Engineer on weekdays and I generally tutor on Saturdays & Sundays. However, I can also tutor on weekdays evening to accommodate the need and requirement of my students if required.
I am a friendly and supportive person who gets excellent results by making lessons fun as well as informative. I am considered to be patient and adaptable and many of my students come to me by recommendation.

Teaching Experience:

Since completing my University masters Degree, I have been tutoring maths, further maths and physics on a regular basis. I have tutored and helped many students achieve their targeted grades, many of which coming from private and Grammar schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is treated as an individual and I use different methods of teaching to accommodate the needs of different students. I find that using methods which will develop independent thinking helps students progress.
In the first session I usually prepare a small assessment in order to identify the student's areas of improvement and then address those in the following sessions. I can also help with any particular topics/areas students are struggling at school and help with homework. Approaching exam periods I will provide student with a number of past exam papers to practice and I will go through any question that is not fully understood. My aim is always to raise the achievements of my tutees beyond their own expectations with challenging and rewarding lessons.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Debra and I live in Shepperton I graduated with an MFA in Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art and have a degree in painting and, diploma in art and design.

I specialise in portraiture and figurative art and, in particular iPad/iPhone and digital painting. I graduated in painting and have experience with oils, acrylics, watercolour alongside other mediums such as charcoals and pencil. Much of my work is done through direct observation and I stress to students, the importance of this. Observational work strengthens the eyes, memory and confidence in what we are looking at, enabling us to better record our observation. Therefore, plenty of practice here will ultimately reap rewards.
I am passionate about what I do and regard drawing and painting as a form of self expression.

Teaching Experience:

I have eighteen years experience within the Early Years sector.

Six months experience as a teaching assistant at a local secondary school in the Art Department.

Private tutoring

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely motivated and positive person and believe that anyone can be taught to draw. Healthy doses of discussions, listening and the exchanging of ideas is a key component in cultivating the creative mind, alongside plenty of encouragement and positivity. Constructive criticism is also very important and this part of exchange should be delivered with positivity to maximise a productive way forward for the tutee.

Personal Description:
I am a lighthearted, focused and friendly actress, with a passion for new people and experiences. I have trained for a year at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic arts (LAMDA), where i was exposed to a great deal of new experiences, and was challenged daily. I believe that nothing is ever hard, but just a challenge to overcome and grow as a individual from. I have also trained at the National Youth Theatre, and have a BTEC in performing arts.

I have worked in a wide variety of jobs, and have consequently gained a large number of transferable skills, such as the ability to gain and maintain a rapport with clients/people/customers.I am very interested in what an Individual has to offer, and love seeing people find their true talent

Recently I have performed at The Soho Theatre, The Bush Theatre and have been involved with the national youth theatre.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first step into private tuition I have experience assisting drama workshops in schools, and have sat on the audition panel of the National youth Theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

Having received Private Drama tuition myself many years ago i am very aware of how important it is to be comfortable with your tutor. I therefore aim to create an extremely relaxed and open atmosphere in order for the tutee to reach their full potential.

I believe that drama classes can be used for anything from gaining confidence, to helping with speeches, but most of all i think they can help you learn much more about yourself and the people around you.

I aim to help clarify speeches, encourage students to reach their full potential, engage in a two way discussion about the piece they are studying and in doing so help them discover exactly what their objective is. This should all be fun and open.

Every student is different, and it is my responsibility to adapt and be aware of this.

View Roberto's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I graduated in Classics (5 years) in Italy. I made extensive studies in Ancient Greek and Latin languages and literatures. The final thesis dealt with the historical fragments of Cato the Censor. I am now leading a research doctorate in Roman history at the University of Newcastle. The research concerns the tribunes of the plebs within the Mid-Republican period (218-134 BC), especially focused on the political role of the tribunate in shaping the Roman politics through their legislative action. My first language being Italian, lessons are available both in English and in my mother tongue. As for the Italian literature I can cover all the centuries of its great history, from the pre humanistic time (Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio), until the twentieth century.

Teaching Experience:

I have had experience of teaching in the italian school as a substitute teacher of Latin, Italian and Ancient Greek at the Liceo Classico. I also taught at Universities, most notably Latin and Ancient Greek, in quality of private tutor.

I run seminars in Roman History during the first academic term (2015-2016) at Newcastle University, focusing particularly on the works of the Greek historian Polybius, Sallust's historiographical view concerning the role of the common Roman people in order to determine the events described within the Bellum Iugurthinum, and the political issues of the last period of the Roman Republic that emerge from Cicero's speech Pro lege Manilia.

Tutoring Approach:

Lectures, with particular attention to the requests of the student. Translation exercises (focused on the morphology and syntax of both Ancient Greek and Latin), which are essential to strengthen and, if necessary, to deepen their knowledge of the classical languages​​. Additional readings compared to the tasks assigned by the school.

Personal Description:
My name's Danielle and I am 24 years old. I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Bsc Honors in Nutrition, Exercise & Health in July 2012. Since graduating I spent a year working at a Blackpool Primary School, assisting with teaching and after school club activities. I have lots of experience working with children age 4-11 years old. I spent 12 months between noc 2013-dec 2014 in Australia working for a private medical practice which was the second largest in Australia. I worked within the finance department and also shadowing the nutritionists as they treated their own clients. During my time there I gained valuable experience working within a clinical healthcare setting, also working with a variety of clients from different cultures and ethnicities. I have confidence in speaking to groups of people in presentation format, a skill i enhanced during my time in Australia. This i take into my approach to tutoring. During my time in Australia i tutored my younger family members throughout there final years at high school. I tutored Maths, Biology and English but have a vast knowledge of P.E and sports science in particular nutritional science.

Teaching Experience:

I worked for a year at a Blackpool Primary school where i enhanced dramatically my knowledge and skills working with young children. I gained one on one experience working with children aged 4-11 years old. I have the confidence and patience required in order to work on this basis with children of all educational levels. I have experience mentoring and tutoring young adults through their high school years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient and understanding young individual. I have a relaxed and gentle approach to teaching and mentoring as i feel you don't get very far adopting a strict approach, especially where young adults are concerned. In order to work as a team there has to be a level of respect no matter what the age difference, therefore i deem a soft friendly approach far more successful. I like to build a friendship with those i tutor/mentor as past experience has proven this the most effective method (regardless of age).

Personal Description:
My name is Danny and I am a PhD student in the Faculty of Engineering and Environment, Northumbria University. I have been receiving the scholarship from the university to do the research on micro mechanics and novel materials. Using a lot of engineering knowledge, I'm confident in encouraging young people going ahead with STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

Teaching Experience:

Going back to the time before my PhD course, being a tutor on Maths and Physics since I was an undergraduate student, I helped many GCSE students (i.e. KS2 and KS3) improve their grades. I'm now revising the combined sciences for some Year 11 students who're taking the exam soon. In addition, I got many experiences in lecturing in the university of Technology and Education (I worked as an assistant lecturer in 2010-2011, right after my graduation, and a lecturer in 2012-2014).

Tutoring Approach:

Various methods can be applied depending on each student, but the general approach is connecting all the lessons on the same topic to a common picture. To do that, I usually explain the relevant concepts visually and link them together. In addition, a variety of examples will be provided to clarify the lessons. Some advanced questions will be supplied to develop their knowledge.

Personal Description:
I completed my PhD in History of Art at University College London (UCL) in 2013. I have published my research in a number of academic journals and edited book collections, and I am a practicing artist, permently based in Hulme, Manchester.

I am currently a Society Research Fellow at Cornell University Society for the Humanities (USA) for the academic year 2016-17, and will therefore only be available for Skype appointments until the end of July 2017.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully trained secondary school teacher, specialising in Art & Design and Photography at KS3, KS4 & KS5. I have 9 years teaching experience, including working as a specialist Learning Support Teacher, and in Special Needs schools catering for children and young adults with a range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple disabilities.

I have particular expertise in studio practice (art and design), digital and darkroom photography (theory, history and practice), literacy, social and vocational skills, as well as History of Art, Anthropology and History of Medicine at undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at undergraduate level, having taught gallery-based first year History of Art courses, for University College London's History of Art Department, and on the History of Art degree programme at the University of Manchester.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a one-to-one, flexible approach to learning and teaching, which first establishes the needs and goals of the student, and then sets out clearly structured strategies for achieving these goals. These may be results-focused when preparing for exams, or aimed at developing a broader understanding of a subject area, depending upon the student's own priorities. I am happy to work with any course materials the student may provide, and I am familiar with all current GCSE and A Level syllabuses. I am able to guide both GCSE and A Level students through their studies, offering consistent, dedicated 1-2-1 tuition for the full term of the course. I can also provide practical tuition for students who are preparing their art portfolios for University submission, and can offer assistance with UCAS forms and references for students who undertake long-term A Level tuition with me.

Tutoring may take place at the student's home, or at my art studio in central Manchester, where I can provide a range of art materials and resources by prior arrangement, for more intensive practical art sessions. Please note that I can travel within 20 miles of central Manchester based on the fee structure quoted below, travelling further will incur a small additional fuel fee.

I have had recent successes with my private students, one of whom attended one-to-one sessions at my Manchester studio for 8 weeks and improved her predicted GCSE Art result of a B by two grades, achieving an A* in her final art exam. My most recent undergraduate student also attained a First overall in her History of Art degree, achieving a high score of 78 on her dissertation project, with intensive tutorial support conducted via Skype.

*Please note that due to the time-intensive nature of undergraduate level tutoring, I am only able to take on a maximum of three undergraduate tutees at any given time. Please see below for my current availability for tutoring at this level.*

I am currently tutoring ONE undergraduate student.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

GCSE Level:

A Level:

University Undergraduate Level:

"I wanted a tutor to give me help and advice on my undergraduate history of art dissertation. I needed reassurance that what I was writing was okay and some one to proof read and give me their opinion on my arguments. Gemma was brilliant, she gave me the confidence that I needed to keep going with my dissertation by reassuring me that I was on the right track. She discussed my ideas with me in detail, proof read all of my work and suggested and sourced articles that I might want to have a look at. I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a First in History of Art and Media and I know that I owe Gemma a huge thank you for the support she gave me on the way to achieving this."

Personal Description:
I am currently training to become a Primary School teacher. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, this combined with my previous work experience means I'm vastly knowledgeable about how children learn (including those with SEN).

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in primary schools as a 1:1 since the first year of university (2012). I then completed my degree in Psychology and enrolled on a School Direct course (Primary PGCE with QTS). I therefore have experience teaching children with SEN and children aged 5-11.
I have good use and experience of Makaton.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the best approach to any kind of tutoring is one that is tailored to the person. This as well as a good relationship is what I feel produces the best results.

Personal Description:
I am a medical doctor, completed my MD a few years back. I am currently enrolled in post graduate course in the university of sheffield and posted at royal hallamshire hospital. I have significant clinical experience and teaching experience at medical school. I am passionate about teaching medicine and interaction with the young minds. I love the idea of teaching and exploring the subjects beyond the classroom approach.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught to undergraduates in medical school for more than five years. I have also experience of teaching post graduate first as lecturer after my MD. Moreover, i have experience of teaching medicine and other basic subjects to undergraduate nursing students a few years back.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the tutoring should be like an open discussion, two way interaction, comprehensive but at the same time succint. A good teacher always know how to encourage and stimulate the thought process on the subject. Tutoring is fun when you are at the same page interacting and promoting the thought process of the students and thinking from their perspectives.

Personal Description:
I am a psychology teacher (head of department) and SEN support teacher (across gcse curriculum) with first class honours in psychology from Birkbeck university. I specialise in 1:1 and small group learning.
I teach all gcse and a level psychology topics as well as many undergraduate modules including research methods and critical analysis.
My tutoring can be an extension of what is currently being taught in class or independent study. I am able to provide worksheets and revision materials. Students will be required to provide any textbooks/revision guides for the syllabus they are studying. (At A level and above all students should have their own books).
I can also offer tuition in gcse maths and science specialising in foundation level (5-1 or C-G papers).
Whether you are a prospective student wanting to start your course with good subject knowlege, an AS student looking to progress to A level or a current student wanting to improve your grade - I can support you.

Teaching Experience:

Two years experience tutoring psychology at A level and gcse maths and science. One year experience as 1:1 SEN support teaching at gcse level across curriculum and teaching psychology at A level. Also, one year experience running the psychology department at a college.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to build confidence in my students - to help them develop their subject knowledge whilst teaching techniques for approaching exams effectively. I believe in a student centred approach, where the student is encouraged to learn for themselves under the guidance of the teacher.

SEN tuition: I can cater my teaching to the students individual needs. I have experience with a wide range of needs including autism friendly education. My aim is to break down learning into manageable chunks.
