Personal Description:
I have Special Needs University qualifications and counseling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

Free slots available:
- Tuesday: 7.30pm onwards
- Wednesday: 4-5pm, 6-7pm
- Thursday: 5-6pm, 6-7.30pm
- Saturday: 5.30pm onwards

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for the past 14 years preparing students for +11, +13 exams in English and Maths. I also teach Maths up to AS level (C1 and C2).

I am a certified therapist in PhonoGraphix method for addressing spelling and reading difficulties both for children and adults.

I could also help with learning computers (ECDL syllabus including usage of Word, PowerPoint, Internet, Excel).

Tutoring Approach:

I have Special Needs University qualifications and counselling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

As a tutor, I encourage my students to reflect upon their mistakes and to understand how to tackle the next step of their learning, without having a negative response.

I usually have the first lesson together with the parents so that the student feels comfortable and parents can observe my teaching; I present a folder containing the CRB form, qualifications, QTS certificate and letters of recommendations from parents. I teach from home in a calm and stimulating environment.
The first lesson is only paid if the parent decides to continue tuition.

Personal Description:
Buongiorno! I am Julie, I have been teaching Beginners Italian for 15 years, I lived in Milano some years ago, returning to the UK in 2001. I love teaching and always aim to make the lessons fun and not too scary for beginners!

Teaching Experience:

While living in Italy I taught English and Art, and since my return to UK I took my Italian A Level and having been teaching ever since. I really enjoy teaching and think that shows in my very interactive lessons!

Tutoring Approach:

The lessons are geared to getting you to speak Italian, of course we have to study some grammar but I try to keep it to friendly bite-size pieces, as the most important thing is having the confidence to speak with Italians

Personal Description:
Hello my name is Virginie, I am French and i would like to share my language with anyone that wish to learn. I also teach English as a foreign language. I have a master in law (from the University Paris II) so i am able to teach from basic to more technical vocabulary.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate from Bristol University with a Masters Degree in Mathematics, specialising in Applied Mathematics and in particular, Quantum Mechanics. I am patient and friendly, and keen to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject.
I am an avid musician and devote much of my spare time to playing piano and guitar, both of which I play in my band. I am also a big fan of going to gigs/festivals, barbeques, playing sport and hanging out with friends.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private tutor since September 2011 and have had a great deal of success, the most recent of which including students being accepted to study at both Oxford and Cambridge, all of my A-Level students achieving A/A* grades, and a mature student whom I taught Further Maths from scratch has received an offer and is now studying Physics at Surrey University.
I taught in a school in Bristol as part of my studies which included a lesson a week whereby I taught algebra to a group of students from Somalia with very limited English skills. I have also spent 3 weeks teaching and assisting in a local school in Guildford.
I have worked with students of all abilities and so am able to pitch my explanations at the appropriate level for the student, and have been praised for my ability to provide clear and concise explanations, and my friendly approach to teaching. I am young, enthusiastic and experienced in exam preparation and revision techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer teaching Maths by explaining concepts at a fundamental level, following up with well-worked examples of the theory in action. This is because in my experience, to understand something properly you need to understand not only where it came from but how it's properly applied.
I normally draw up sheets with all the vital information about a topic for the student so that they have something they can refer to quickly to find what they need. In the past I have set a few problems for the student to do in between lessons and we would then look at them together the following week, and of course I am happy to go through problems together that the student is struggling with.

Subjects

  • GCSE or Standards (40 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi!

I can help to be better at English - whether it`s speaking, listening, reading or writing.

____________________-

I will assess you and then work with you to pinpoint your problems providing targeted teaching that explains the correct English for that context.

If your formal understanding of English is good but you want to become more fluent, we can look at culture, slang and social language to help you fit in better with your peers. Often, informal language is the key to better business networking - you need to be able to chat in the bar after a meeting to make contacts!

Similarly, if your formal English is good but your accent is a problem, we can work together to improve this. To understanding speakers from other countries, much of what native speakers have trouble with is their stress patterns and intonation.

Whether you need help with revision for exams, want to learn for fun, want to improve your chances of business or just need someone to support you to study harder, I can help you!

I can also work with children 10+ - although my qualification is an adult one, the methods are the same and I have many, many hours of classroom experience with junior-age students and teenagers.

Teaching Experience:

I`ve recently qualified as an English language teacher, am working for Languages United, provide 1:1 lessons and have multiple previous experience in assisting speakers of other languages to develop their English.

I`ve also worked at the City of Bath College as a student support worker for 2 years to students with learning differences, learning difficulties and emotional/behavioural problems to enable them to successfully attend college

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed but thorough!

I like my students to feel at ease when we work together - a happy student learns best! I always do an initial assessment for each student and will ask you about your preferred learning styles: maybe you like to do things by rules and learn lots of grammar, maybe you prefer to play lots of games.

Similarly, you might want to focus on your speaking, listening, writing or reading or you might need specialised language for business, academia or socialising. If there's just one area you need to focus on, it's no problem.


I will always provide a lesson that meets your style and needs. Whether you want serious work or lots of games, and whether you need work on your formal or informal language, it will always be based on proper grammar, authentic use and rules.

Personal Description:
I passionately believe in students achieving their potential and enjoy the role of personal tutoring to further aid students learning. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business (2:1) and have worked for a number of large organisations offering a variety of depth and experience. I have experience both within state secondary and independent schools, as well as examining experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for 10 years in a variety of differing schools and colleges throughout the UK. I have taught on many different specifications for Business and Economics. I have taught on all courses AQA, OCR and EdExcel including vocational (OCR Nationals/BTEC) and traditional qualifications (GCSE/A Level).

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I like to make an initial meeting to understand the needs and objectives of the personal tutoring before developing a detailed plan of the outline of personal tutoring support. I am keen to ensure that both parents and students alike are happy with the service and will accommodate additional requests. I like to ensure that the learner is both enthused and engaged in the tutoring sessions and have a range of resources and assessment techniques.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris , and I am a highly experienced tutor of Maths, English and 11+ entrance tuitions for selective schools. I teach Maths at all levels up to GSCE level, and English at all levels up to Key Stage 3 level.

I live in Devizes, Wiltshire.

I have been tutoring for 16 years, and have 34 written references from parents and I also have a Maths degree.

I have for much of those 16 years worked as a full-time tutor, and I use National Curriculum Resources for all my tuitions.

Teaching Experience:

During my 16 years as a tutor, I have taught students of all ages and abilities, and have literally taught 1000's of lessons- at times teaching as many as 30 hours of tuition in a week.

I have taught every type of student from those with Learning Disabilities to the Gifted & Talented.

I am constantly recommended by parents to other parents, and I have a proven track record of improving students' grades.
I also have resources and past papers , for 11+, SATS (English & Maths) and GSCE Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly person by nature , and I take this into my tuitions. I like to make my students feel at ease in the lessons , and that they have a tutor that they feel they can ask as many questions as they like.

I also believe in offering plenty of praise and encouragement to my students.

I follow the National Curriculum programme in my tutoring, to cover all aspects of the syllabus.

However, even if I have prepared a certain topic for a lesson, if the student then asks me to look over in a different topic, or wants me to help them with some school homework, then I am always flexible to do just that.

I also never move on to a new topic with a student, until I am happy that they have fully understood what I have been teaching.

My method of teaching is to teach a topic, and then set the student plenty of practice examples , to make sure they fully understand the topic.

Personal Description:
I am a young spanish guy living in London, i came to this city to improve my English because im studying to be a teacher (English specialty). Its a 4 years degree in the International University of La Rioja (Spain) and i complement my studies working part-time in a famous clothing store.
Five years ago i finished my Economics degree (4 years) in University of La Corua (Spain) and also i did a course about Stock Market Analysis in University of La Corua. I received a State scholarship to work in an Italian international company, where i had the chance to learn Italian as well. I did an Italian course in the Tourism School of Rimini (Italy).
I decided to star my teacher degree and change my personal career because i feel that its my vocation, i love to learn about everything and have the chance to pass on my knowledge to others. Its something really pleasant.
As additional information i can say that im a quite person, very patient and i love the sports, im a sportsmen and i did the course to be a monitor leisure activities which has given me the opportunity to deal with many children and teach them so many different activities such as: Archery,kayak, canoeing and rowing...
Other information of interest is that i was football coach during 6 years in a Spanish football team, dealing with children between 5 and 12 years old. It was a good experience to learn how i can motivate the children to achieve their objectives.

Teaching Experience:

Ive been working as a Spanish teacher in a language academy during 6 months, teaching people from Germany, France, and UK... (Adult people)
Also I've worked in a Primary School during 1 year as an English teaching assistant, teaching children aged between 3 and 9.
Apart from that i worked as a private tutor teaching different subject such as maths, English, economy, geography, history and Spanish. Teaching to students between 6 and 15 years old.

Tutoring Approach:

About my teaching philosophy, i believe that the student has to understand the problems and no just memorize. I always try to explain the subjects adapting the concepts to the real life, like that, the student will remember better the explanation.
For language classes i try to combine grammar, vocabulary and conversation. The conversation is one of the most important part to gain confidence and to speak fluently another language.
I always try to motivate the students to face the subject like something interesting and funny for them.
Concerning my availability im available Monday to Friday after 4:00 pm and weekends could also be negotiated. Im glad to tutor in my home or commute to your place or find another location.

I am a native speaker of German and fluent in English and French. I moved to Cambridge in 2014. I enjoy sport, travelling and cooking.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and highly motivated language teacher and I have been teaching German, English and French in Swiss schools for the last ten years. Since moving to Cambridge, I have worked at a state school teaching French year 7 up to year 11, as a private tutor and a supply teacher. I am keen to share my passion for languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I always look for the most appropriate teaching method to keep my students stimulated and motivated. I use songs, games, visualisations and multimedia to help simplify complex issues, often create my own supplementary course material and regularly revise topics to consolidate learning. Teaching English, German and French as foreign languages has enabled me to appreciate the challenges students face understanding the different grammar structures.

Personal Description:
Hi,

I have many years teaching experience at every level from Key Stage 3 to post graduate.

During these years I have become acutely aware of how valuable it is for young learners to progress to secondary education with a good grasp of key skills, particularly in Maths. Since retiring from full time teaching I am focusing on working with primary age students to help them develop these skills.

Teaching Experience:

Maths teaching in a number of secondary schools at GCSE level + Key/Core Skill Numeracy at college level.

Tutoring Approach:

I see Maths as a language. In simple terms the language of numbers (let's not get too bogged down in the tricky stuff like algebra at this stage). As with all languages, if it's one you're familiar with it's pretty straightforward. If it's a 'foreign' language it can be a complete mystery.

Unfortunately all too many young people progress to secondary school feeling uneasy about their understanding of Maths and therefore develop a mistrust or even fear of the subject. The longer such reservations are held the more deeply ingrained they become. A fear of Maths developed while in primary school can hold learners back at all subsequent levels.

My aim is to help young learners develop a positive and confident relationship with the subject at the earliest possible age.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm a graduate of the University of Edinburgh's MA (Hons) Latin degree. I've got a working background in arts management and administration, but I'm hoping to utilise my degree to encourage prospective Latinists to give the subject a go!

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in Latin and English Literature five years ago, both for beginners and up to GCSE. I currently have a tutee learning beginner's Latin. While at university I tutored other students in beginner's Latin and Classical Civilisation. I've also spent the past few years providing training for adults in the workplace, so I'm happy to tutor adult learners (both beginners and experienced) as well.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer tutoring using practical methods - such as discussions and games - rather than just learning by rote. However, I adapt my tutor style based on what the tutee requires. I've been trained in a variety of methods to engage young and adult learners, and will try out several to see what suits the tutee best. For more experienced learners, such as A-Level / Advanced Higher candidates, I will identify which areas of the subject (vocabulary, grammar, literature) need most tuition, and decide with the tutee which to focus upon. I am happy to tutor individuals or in small groups (in which case a discounted rate can be agreed upon.)

  • Entrance Exams
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have just recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in English Literature & Language. I am very passionate about literature and history outside of a teaching capacity. I have decided to begin tutoring since graduating as I would love to pass on my knowledge and teaching to students of all ability. I am also a mentor to students in my local community I have interests in football, quizzing, drama, and cinema.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students for over four years in London and Oxford. I initially began tutoring friends and family for GCSE History, English Language and English Literature. Soon I decided to take it further and began tutoring people in my local area. In my time as a GCSE tutor I have managed to push students from C grades towards B's and above.

I also tutor in AS/A Level English Literature and History. For AS/A Levels I regularly focus on exam technique and try to improve on essay structure.

Tutoring Approach:

When I arrived at Oxford I began tutoring students taking their A-Levels and my tutoring proved successful as many of my students went on to achieve very top marks in their exams. By focusing on bad exam technique and trying to eliminate common mistakes in essay writing it allowed me to greatly improve ability. Encouragement is something I have always found to be a worthy asset in tutoring as it empowers the tutee and provides the comfortable atmosphere needed for the student to excel. I aim to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that differs from the classroom so students can get to appreciate the texts and their various nuances without the pressures of a classroom.

Personal Description:
I am friendly and cheerful, I want each individual to achieve their personal best in their chosen subject. I believe that one to one tutoring can be an enormous help to students, particularly where good personal relationships are formed. I enjoy seeing students grapple with difficulties and then move forward - with support and determination, goals can be reached.

Teaching Experience:

I trained to teach in 1980, since then I have taught individuals, classes and groups in the UK and abroad.
I have worked in full time and part time posts in further education, in schools and in individual hourly sessions.
My most recent experience has been as a full time primary school teacher, working in a Warwickshire primary school for the last 15 years with experience of both Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum.
I am used to teaching both those who expect to succeed and those who are more used to failure,

I am currently available and welcome enquiries from individuals seeking to extend their learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in working with each individual and if relevant their parents or guardians.
I aim to tailor an individual porgramme to the needs of each person.
What interests me is finding out what your child needs and how you want me to support him/her then working steadily towards an agreed outcome.
Establishing good communication between your child and me is of paramount importance to success.
I look forward to meeting you.
