Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher with 23 years experience working in schools in Eastbourne. My main subject is Art (I have a degree in ceramics) so much of my teaching is through creative, visual, practical and kinaesthetic teaching whereby my pupils enjoy their lessons and are enthused into a love of learning. I am also involved in the Eastbourne Art scene and paint at home when I get the chance. I am friendly, fair and holistic in my approach . I have two children (15 and 17) whom I try and fit my work around and feel I could offer a positive tutoring experience to children and their families in this area of teaching. I can also offer English tuition for those who may have English as an additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified in 1993 with a post graduate certificate in education after having been a self employed potter in Bristol exhibiting my ceramics. I have co-ordinated Art, Maths and played an active role in early years play and learning with all the necessary knowledge of the primary curriculum including the Foundation Stage. I have taught many children with E.A.L. and have a sound knowledge of special needs teaching using methods such as Makaton signing and Widgit symbols to enhance children's understanding. I would use the Numicon system to support primary maths and am familiar with Key Stage 1 and 2 age range as this is what I have taught mostly over the last few years. I am familiar with SATS and have been on many courses over the years on all subjects. I particularly enjoy history, art and maths and could teach very basic French too. I have recently trained to be a specialist language teacher and visit schools across the county.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in encouragement, boosting self esteem and making tutoring interesting, as I have seen what boredom, frustration and poor engagement can do to young children. They need to be switched on and confident in what they do in order to achieve. I always start at a level a child can succeed in and am aware that sometimes you have to change your approach depending on the child. I have a bank of subject and topic ideas suitable for this age range and have been able to think on my toes over the years.

Personal Description:
My name is Tim and I'm based in the Caerphilly area. I am happy to work anywhere in Caerphilly, Cardiff, Newport or the Valleys. I am a primary school teacher and have 24 years experience working with children within the age range 6-11.
I have worked in London and in South Wales and have taught in a range of primary schools, teaching children from many different types of background. I have a current CRB check and can provide excellent references.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a primary school teacher since 1986 and have worked across the age range from 6 to 11. I have a good deal of experience teaching children in Year 6 and preparing them for the step up to secondary school. I am able to give tuition in any primary subject but have a specialism in maths as I have been maths co-ordinator in more than one school and have an in depth knowledge of how children learn in this subject and how they can be helped to enjoy their work here and achieve good results. I also have experience of tutoring children in individual sessions and have always been able to help them to improve their standards and become more confident across the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly tutor who has always been able to establish a good rapport with children of primary age. I am extremely patient and calm in my approach as a teacher and believe in using humour to help children relax and enjoy learning. I take into account the preferred learning style of the child and tailor all lessons to their needs. I will try to include an element of challenge in all sessions to help children build up their confidence through success on progressively more difficult tasks. I have a huge range of resources I can use to help make sessions interesting and am prepared to be flexible in terms of rates, location of sessions and times.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher and have been teaching maths privately and in comprehensive schools fo over 25 years. I am a maths teacher at an 11 - 16 comprehensive school where I teach KS3, KS4 maths classes.
Part of my responsibility is to direct teaching and learning within my department, and to do this I monitor the constant changes and developments to do with the teaching and assessment of maths. This keeps me aware of all the changes to the format and style of the exam papers (the specifications have changed and there has been a major shift in the style and difficulty of the questions making them more functional and requiring additional skills in answering them, a fact that some non-qualified, non-up-to-date teachers may not be aware of!)
I have successfully tutored students through GCSEs at both higher and foundation levels and within both modular and linear settings and have experience with all the major exam boards (AQA, OCR, and Edexcel)

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in comprehensive schools for over 25 years and at all key stages. I am currently a maths teacher and a private maths tutor. I have over 25 years experience teaching privately and have an excellent, proven track record having always made improvements to my students' grades, sometimes from 'D' to A*.

Tutoring Approach:

I visit the student at their home for the lesson, which is usually one hour per week (but this arrangement can be flexible). I will perform an analysis to tailor the individual needs of the student. Once the student has a good understanding of the concepts, I teach methods of answering exam style questions, then move on to past exam papers giving them the skills and confidence to do well in the exam.
Following each lesson I like to have an informal chat with the student and family to give feedback on progress made.
I can also offer short booster lessons in order to bring the student 'up to speed' or to prepare for exams that may require only one or two hours.

I am able to tailor my lessons to suit the individual needs of each student, whether it be focussed on Speaking, Listening, Reading or Writing (for the languages), or any specific topic for Maths.
I hope to talk to you soon.

Personal Description:
As a practical enthusiastic, determined and, very academic individual; I keep abreast with contemporary events. I read on daily basis, it is a habit and an addiction. Also, I have subscribed to several Science journals (Royal society of chemistry and Biomedical science journals) and magazines, keeping up to date with current developments in the scientific world. I am very open minded friendly and easy to talk to.

I have assisted friends and families with all sort of coursework from international business management, Human Resources, health and social care, early years foundation child care courses, Health and social care,nursing and GeneralSciences. One thing about academic exercises is that knowledge is transferable. The skills acquired in one area can be transferred to another subject. What is required is, understanding the concepts, have the structure laid out, have the right evidences to back up one's assertion, provide appropriate examples to support literature and make your literature flow in a coherent and consistent manner using suitable connectives.

There is a first time for everything, try a tutor out and don't get too paranoid until you test one. It is always natural to have hesitations until you become comfortable with someone new.

Teaching Experience:

My experience in working in 6 different schools has enriched my perspective towards education. I have witnessed very good teachers and terrible one's with poor teaching skills. I have worked as a science technician and teaching assistant directly involved teaching lessons when teachers are absent. I am familiar with all the various school academic curriculum for AQABA, OCR, EDEXCEL etc. I am abreast with the latest curriculum and work closely with teachers providing them with latest science experiment and practical in order to enrich the understanding of students.

My laboratory background gives me the advantage to connect abstract academic theories to reality. Few teachers actually have practical experience and rarely integrate practical in their lessons. I have worked as a laboratory technician and tutor in Biology and Chemistry laboratory in several colleges. During my periods as laboratory technician I do engage one to one with students to sharpen their understanding of the subject matter.

In addition to that, I have worked in 3 different NHS TRUST (Chelsea and Westminster hospital, Royal Free hospital and Epsom and St Helier hospital) my current involves analysing biological specimens, investigating diseases and up to date with current developments in Science.

I and able to translate academic learning to practical medical field. After all, after all the had work most students are going to be working either in education or health. My combine experience in both education and health gives me immense advantage than other tutors.

Students struggling with their dissertation and course works always benefit tremendously from my assistance. I also teach classes when lecturers are absent. I am an experienced home to home private tutor, and teach have taught primary, secondary to university students. I have tutored numerous students from various backgrounds across the length an breadth of London. I am adaptable and fits quickly in any given environment and a people's person. I have no problem travelling distances within London. Currently, I am writing a book for practical and experimental science for teachers, tutors and students.

I understand that every student is unique and vary from their method of learning, absorbing and understanding teaching materials. The different types of learners range from kinaesthetic, visual and auditory. During my tutoring session I implement all three method of tutoring and then instinctively monitor and gauge student learning approach. I adjust and adapt to student tutoring needs, then reinforce the style that is most suitable.

I am currently working with the NHS as scientist taking patient's blood samples etc.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to my background as a laboratory technician, my approach is both practical, kinaesthetic, auditory, visual and theoretical. I will ensure my student understand the subject topic in depth by creating scenario's, diagrams, examples that matches the theoretical concept being discussed. I will keep prompting the student and using different learning approaches to engage the student to enhance assimilation of the learning material. As an experienced private tutor I have in possession numerous scientific diagrams, lecture notes, and power point presentation which I use in my tutoring. During and after tutoring students receive materials which continues to assist them in their studies. I use laptops, tablets, videos and diagrams to enhance and maximize teaching experience.

I have also worked with Local Government Chemist (LGC) the biggest private scientific firm in Europe with several outlets in the world. I have experienced hands on and progressive scientific developments and several analytically scientific progress. These include detection of cocaine, heroin and other drugs in body fluids such as urine, saliva and blood samples.

I demonstrate Scientific experiment and practical alongside teachers.My style of teaching is relating theory to practice.The advantage of this style of teaching is it unifies theory to practice, and hence, consolidating and building scientific confidence.

Personal Description:
I hold a BA hons in History and Masters degree (distinction) in History and Politics from the University of Exeter. I was graded outstanding for my PGCE in Secondary History. I continued this onto Masters Level, completing my MEd ln 2011.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a selective boys grammar school in Devon, where I worked in a thriving History and Politics department (ranked among the top 10 of History and Politics departments nationally according to GCSE and A Level exam results). I then moved to the North West to teach History and Politics to A Level at a prestigious independent dayschool. I have recently returned to Devon to teach at a similarly excellent and high performing independent school where I teach English. I have taught a range of exam modules including Henry VIII; Crime and Punishment; the Modern World; 20th Century America: Vietnam War; 20th Century Germany and the Cold War. I am an experienced marker for various examination boards for several exam boards including Edexcel, AQA and Cambridge IGCSE. I am well versed in exam technique (both old and new specifications). As such, I am able to offer an insight into what examiners are looking for in GCSE, AS and A2 exam responses.

Tutoring Approach:

I work to instill a genuine enthusiasm for History, Politics, and English as well as developing a sound understanding of the topics covered during tutoring. I use and prepare engaging resources as well as a diverse range of teaching methods, which enable students to learn both the content and the skills needed to succeed in their examinations. It is my belief that tutoring sessions should not just involve the regurgitation of facts on the part of the student; rather, it should empower students with the confidence and knowledge they need to secure the grades they're capable of.

I tailor my sessions to best fit the needs of the students; whether that is through honing exam technique, or gaining an in depth understanding of the course content. I am able to target my sessions to suit all levels of ability.

Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old female. I have worked with children for a number of years now in the mainstream high school setting. I'm always studying myself, I have completed a basic counselling skills course and art-it's place in therapy course.

I'm currently working within a mainstream high school as a communication support worker, for students on the autism spectrum. I am enthusiastic and passionate about education. I want to support my students to achieve their full potential.

I am available during school holidays for tutoring during the day, or evenings and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I started working with inclusion doing art projects with students who have behaviour difficulties; then went on to be a teaching assistant supporting all academic areas on the curriculum with children aged 10-17. I can differentiate work down to very low levels and am aware of the current curriculum. I have worked with students of many abilities and was a key worker for a child who's Downs Syndrome.
I still work in mainstream but I'm now a specialist in autism, working with children on the autistic spectrum daily. I am aware of the challenges my students face with accessing work on the curriculum as well as the social side of things.

I have also supported my school by covering art lessons and helping students with coursework and homework.

I offer tutoring in the following areas:
-Reading & Writing Skills: reading feedback and writing for coursework (essay, report, article for publication, research)

-Study skills: how to read critically and how to write, making presentations, etc.

-Art: Acrylic painting, Drawings and Rendering, Making Physical and 3D Models and crafts, Sketch book, Design Portfolio ( to help developing your portfolio for college or university interviews)

-Special needs: Differentiation for any subject up to GCSE/A'level and within the arts at university level working with students on homework, coursework and presentations who have learning difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

I always wanted to be an art teacher, that's why I went to university, but over the years working in a school I realised what I could achieve by remaining at the support level. I can give more of my time to small groups and 1:1, a lot more than a teacher can as I don't have all the paperwork and other commitments to many students that they have.

My aim as a tutor is to make art accessible and give my students confidence. Over the years I've seen lots of students feel like their work isn't good enough; I can support them by teaching the basic skills and building on their existing knowledge.

I am a very patient & positive tutor who can explain concepts in a way which can be understood by my students.

Personal Description:
I am a successful local tutor and teacher with an MA in Education from Oxford Brookes University (2016), a Postgraduate Diploma in English and Language in Education from the University of Reading (2012). I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Secondary - English) from Oxford Brookes University (2007) and a BA Hons in English Literature (2006). I am passionate about my subject and enthusiastic about improving both my pedagogical and subject knowledge. With A Level clients, I often re-read the key exam texts and exam specifications in order to deliver a successful tutorial. For GCSE, I am confident with multiple exam boards but, again, I take a sincere interest in changes to qualifications and specifications. I have recently led a team of ten teachers in our delivery of the GCSE English qualification through WJEC. Part of my role included observing good teaching practice and documenting this for staff appraisals.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years experience of working in the state secondary sector as a Qualified English Teacher; teaching anything from Key Stage 3 (11 years - 14 years) up to Key Stage 5 (A Level) including GCSE. I currently teach GCSE and iGCSE English at a popular FE college for adults, returning to education, and for full-time learners aged 16+. In addition, I have previously worked as a Learning Support Assistant, at a Catholic primary school in Reading. I have also taught American children how to use movie editing packages, such as iMovie, in Maine, USA.

Tutoring Approach:

The rapport with the parent is as just as important as the tutee. In order to make a success of the tuition, it's paramount to have a good professional relationship with both. I use feedback from the tutee's parent (via a school report) and informal feedback from the tutee to create an Individual Tuition Plan which includes setting three clear targets. Depending on the key stage and ability of the tutee, this can range anything from parenthetic comma use to translating Chaucerian poetry!

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Russian, currently living in Manchester, university educated with years of teaching experience of Russian and English as a foreign language. I offer high quality Russian language courses via Skype and in person for foreign students of all levels.
I will help you to choose an appropriate individual educational program, and the quantity of hours per week. Whether you are a beginner, or at an intermediate or advanced level, I can offer Russian language courses suitable to you.
k.com/groups/truerussian/
Besides, I can provide a reasonable discount if you pay by a block of 5 lessons (it will cost you only 15 pounds (that is 23 dollars) per one-hour lesson by Skype or in person) via paypal though they take some minimal fees it is yet the cheapest way of payment. Or by bank transfer.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Best regards,
Oxana

Teaching Experience:

I am passionate about teaching. I hold 6 years of experience in teaching pre-school English (for children aged 3 to 5), English as a subject for years one to nine students, General and Business English for employees of different companies and Russian as a foreign language privately

Tutoring Approach:

I use the communicative method. The main focus is on using the language. You start speaking Russian from the very first lesson, even if you`re a beginner.
Russian grammar will be introduced to you in a clear structured format - you will see that there is an understandable logic. You will not be overloaded with grammar tasks and will learn only as much grammar as you need in order to speak and understand Russian.
If you`d like to use a book during the course, together we can choose a book that will best address your needs.At the same time, most lessons are held without the use of a book. The book would mainly be used for reference, providing structure, and homework material.
I like the idea of total immersion because we all really learn by doing, and the more you practice Russian, the more you will learn.

Personal Description:
In October 2014 I graduated from Imperial College London, where I spent 4 years studying for my Masters Degree in MSci Mathematics. I have a big passion for learning and this is a trait I want to be able to pass on to other children. Currently, I am working as an Analytic Consultant in Birmingham, which helps to demonstrate the strong analytical and communication skills that I possess.

Teaching Experience:

During Secondary School I ran a Maths Club once a week where I set problems and puzzles for all students. Furthermore, I was a Chess Coach teaching chess to primary school children and in Imperial College I held sessions with 1st Year students aiding their transition between school and university.

Thus, I have had experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities, which will help me to adapt my approach based on the student.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I aim to pass on my passion for Mathematics onto my students, developing their understanding and appreciation for the subject. In my opinion this is the best way to learn as ideas become easier to remember and concepts become quicker to grasp, which will transpose into better grades and examination performances.

Overall, I bring an enthusiastic and approachable atmosphere to my sessions, where students are not afraid to ask questions. This will enhance their learning experience and again improve exam results.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • GCSE or Standards (£45 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£50 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Solenne. I am a French native speaker and I have been living in the UK since 2013.
Holder of a Master's degree (universities of Paris La Sorbonne and René Descartes), my education also includes the DAEFLE of the Alliance Française de Paris (Teaching French as a Foreign Language Advanced Diploma) awarded with honors in 2014.
I offer tailor-made French courses as a reliable, qualified and patient tutor to students of different ages, levels and nationalities.

Whether you are:
- a parent and you would like your child to receive extra help with his/her French school work,
- a student taking GCSE or A-levels in French and need confidence for your exam,
- a professional willing to have a proper conversation with your French colleagues or clients,
- or just an adult learner with a passion for languages and wishing to brush up your French,
I will pay close attention to what you are looking for and how I will help you to achieve your language goals.

I have an updated French Police Check and DBS Check.

Cancellation Policy:
There are times when advance notification is not possible and I am willing to adapt myself as much as possible to students who face circumstances beyond their control.
However, I require a minimum cancellation period prior to a lesson.
- If I am not notified (by phone or by email) of a cancellation 48 hours prior to the session, I will fully charge the amount of the session.
- In case my student(s) and I can find another convenient time slot within the week, the lesson will be postponed and will not be charged.
If you contact me prior to this window, thank you for your courtesy!

Teaching Experience:

This is my third year as a French as a Second/Foreign Language (FLE) Tutor. I feel equally comfortable with beginners, intermediate or advanced learners. I am also a French language Instructor and Assessor for the british Ministry of Defence (MoD) and a Tutor for the National Crime Agency (NCA).

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is not just guiding students through their learning but also giving them confidence and enabling them to experience lessons in a relaxed, friendly and yet result-oriented way.
That is why I tailor my lessons to the students` needs and pace (one-to-one or small group tutoring on request), in order to teach French language effectively as well as to raise awareness to the French culture.
My approach is action-oriented, based on the ability of students to communicate (speak / listen / read / write) in authentic situations, according to the Common European Framework of references for Languages (CEFR).

  • French
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Does your child needs 1-1 support with English or Maths?
Is your child struggling to keep up with school-work, homework or the demands of GCSE?

I can offer 1-1 support in a comfortable learning environment from an inspirational, patient and friendly trainee teacher who has taught whole classes and taught children 1-1 in schools and tutored GCSE Maths privately over the last 4 years.

Teaching Experience:

I spent two years partaking in work experience working across KS1 and KS2 to work towards my degree. As part of my degree I have taught KS1 and KS2 classes and individual children in 1-1 interventions. Also, I privately have tutored before to good success for a young girl working towards her GCSE Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very intuitive to the learning styles of all children. I like to spend some time getting to know a child and how they learn so as when working with them, I can work on their individual strengths to develop their understanding of different subjects.

Personal Description:
PhD applicant in Philosophy of Religion (Cambridge), recently awarded a distinction for a masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics in Education at Heythrop College, University of London. Currently specialising in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics tuition for A level philosophy and religious studies students.

Teaching Experience:

Recently tutored a student for the Edexcel AS exam in Philosophy of Religion. Together we developed a 7 week study plan that addressed gaps in the student's knowledge in line with a realistic strategy for exam preparation. This involved tailoring resources, mainly handouts, to meet the student's needs on various topics. The student typically prepared for a session by reading a set of handouts, we would then talk through the content in session, setting up a written homework assignment on a question likely to come up in the exam, to be reviewed at the start of the next session. Sessions included guidance on how to write top level exam answers, tutoring the student on the assessment criteria for the exam specification and an approach to writing philosophical essays advocated by Dr Michael Lacewing, author of standard A level Philosophy textbooks and my lecturer at Heythrop College, as well as a sponsor of my PhD application.

Other experience
Various bits of teaching through training experiences and agency work, including teaching secondary RE from Year 7s through to Year 12s, and cover supervising, one-to-one tutoring and assistant teaching across all subjects at Key Stage 3. Trained in SAPERE's philosophical enquiry methodology, P4C (Philosophy for Children, Colleges & Communities) and as a voluntary P4C facilitator have run sessions on Ethics topics with A level Philosophy and Religious Studies students at sixth form colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to work with students' own approaches but I have found that a good way to structure revision and monitor progress over many weeks is to use an Excel workbook, shared an updated by student and tutor, with a worksheet for each study week. Each worksheet includes boxed and highlighted sections containing guidance notes on the subject covered in that study week and on writing different sorts of exam answers, as well as space for students to complete homework assignments so that they are embedded in with these notes. Over the weeks the workbook is a useful reference point for tuition sessions and can become the main source of revision notes for the student, something that is really appreciated by those who need help to organise their own learning.

My PhD proposal is in the field of analytic philosophy, which endeavours to advance theories and arguments in the clearest and most precise way possible, with words and terms used in everyday language. This is the approach I aim to take to tutoring. I haven't always been taken with philosophy, having a background in media production and wealth management and a first degree in history, so I can also draw on quite a wide set of interests and experiences to give a little colour to my tutoring.
