Personal Description:
I've loved Mathematics from as long as I can remember and I enjoy teaching it and tutoring others. I have studied Maths up to PhD level and so am comfortable teaching all levels of Maths. I am friendly and spend time to help my tutees understand the fundamental concepts which they need for problem solving so that they can be successful in applying this knowledge in their exams.

Teaching Experience:

I was a teaching assistant at Strathclyde University for 4 years. In that time, I lectured Mathematics to first and second year University students, organised and supervised tutorial sessions, set and marked assignments/exams and tutored students on a one-to-one basis. I have also tutored my friend's kids who were home schooled and marked work which their parents didn't have the knowledge to mark.
Also have a PGDE(S) in Mathematics and currently teaching within the new curriculum.
Been involved in secondary school teaching since 2011 and currently teach in a private school in Glasgow.

Tutoring Approach:

I find that the most effective way of mastering concepts/tricks is the hands-on approach. So I work with my tutees particularly in areas where they are weak until they have mastered the underlying concept/approach and are able to apply it on their own to similar problems. I am patient and work with you to help you use the knowledge you already have by approaching material from a different angle to what you've maybe been shown.

Personal Description:
Friendly and informal, I tailor tutoring to individual needs. I am married with a young family and enjoy the flexibility that tutoring gives me with my business hours. I see tutoring as a valuable resource for the student who can gain great insight in a one to one session

Teaching Experience:

I have been a personal tutor for over 12 years, helping many students with maths and sciences, mostly at GCSE level. In addition I have experience as a Lecturer at The University of Huddersfield and at Wakefield District College. Where I taught computer science and I.T.

Since 2000 I have been looking to focus more on music and to develop this as my specialism. I can assist with Music theory up to around Grade 5 and Piano and Keyboards from beginner to intermediate level.

Tutoring Approach:

Individually tailored to the student. I prefer a sytematic approach, followed up by individual study by the student. I regularly assess student progress to ensure full understanding and encourage background reading for breadth of knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am a young professional with a strong background in volunteer mentoring with children and young people, as well as a solid academic resume. I was home educated (tutorial-based) through primary and secondary school, and went on to study English Literature and History at the University of Edinburgh.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working since June 2011 at Mackenzie School of English, teaching English as a second language to foreign high school students.

Also, I have been a private tutor since February 2011, working with a range of ages and levels in both English Literature and History.

As well as my professional experience, I have been involved in youth work, summer camps, and one-to-one mentoring of young people for the past eight years or so. Working at summer camps has given me experience in both group work - teaching and leading discussions - as well as in one-to-one mentoring. Currently I am involved in a weekly youth club here in Leith, working with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from the local community.

Tutoring Approach:

Coming from a rather unconventional educational background, I would bring with me a deep passion for the need to create a tailored and bespoke educational experience for each individual young person. I know how incredible my own learning experience has been, instilling within me a value and love of learning that will remain with me my whole life. I would approach tutoring with this same passion. Learning excites and challenges me, and I believe that it has become limited in the classroom at times. When a young person can see someone else passionate and excited about an aspect of knowledge and understanding, the ramifications are huge. Not only does tutoring provide an avenue for this one-to-one mentoring, but I believe it is also the most powerful method of teaching. It is in that bond of mutual regard and respect that true learning occurs. These passions and beliefs are foundational to my approach of tutoring and mentoring.

Personal Description:
I studied Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, where I was awarded the Craig Taylor Prize for the best exam results in my year. I then spent a year at Harvard as a Frank Knox Fellow before completing an MPhilStud in Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London. I am currently a PhD student at the University of Sussex, but based in London.

My specialist areas are political philosophy, epistemology, critical theory, and Wittgenstein. I can also help with reading German philosophical texts, and issues of translation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor since 2010 and enjoy teaching all ages and levels. Most of my students have been university and A-level students, including mature students.

As well as teaching privately I have been an Associate Tutor at Birkbeck College, teaching BA seminar courses in political philosophy, ethics, and epistemology.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is always to make the subject comprehensible and engaging while challenging students to think for themselves.

Here's what some of my former students said:

'Koshka really helped me to grasp philosophy. Rather than simply training me to pass exams, she encouraged me to develop a thorough understanding of the subject, primarily through detailed reading and Socratic discussion. The tutorials aided me in achieving consistently high grades (90%+ UMS in every module), and compelled me to study philosophy at university.' (Alex, mature A-level student)'

'Koshka was very helpful and patient, and explained everything very clearly. She also provided extra reading that allowed me to gain a deeper understanding (and enjoyment) of my subject. Not only did I learn a lot from our sessions, they were also fun and interesting.' (Ruby, AS-level)

'Koshka had a very comprehensive and thorough approach to the course and was also a relatable and easy to talk to individual. Her out of lesson dedication to marking essays and then detailed run through of them was invaluable to my personal development. Finally, her extensive knowledge and passion for philosophy definitely went some way to helping me feel the same way about the subject.' (Vyshnan, A-level)

BA tutorial evaluations: 'Brilliant essay feedback. Great paper recommendations'; 'Very engaging'; 'Very good at explaining things';'Much enjoyed'.

Personal Description:
I am a self directed, enthusiastic teacher with a passionate commitment to student development and the learning experience. I often design challenging, enriching and innovative activities that address the diverse interests and needs of students. I think I possessed outstanding communication skills, present information in a variety of ways, emphasizing of relevant class materials to the world beyond the classroom. I am also an active team member who effectively collaborates with all levels of staff members and establishes quality relationships with students.
In Mauritius, the primary language is English. I am fluent in both English and French. In these two languages, I am very good in writing as well as in speaking. I have sat for the French subject at the Cambridge A level examination and this explains my ease in the use of this language

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

Tutoring Approach:

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:
I have recently completed studying Theoretical Physics with Applied Maths in the University of Birmingham, and I would absolutely love tutoring (especially Maths!).

I am very patient and motivated - since I know that understanding some concepts can be daunting at GCSE and A-level.

Teaching Experience:

I do Physics and Maths tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to understand the student's position whilst approaching concepts in a logical manner at an appropriate pace. Provided I am informed in advance of the topic for an arranged lesson, I will give my time to prepare fully around it before the sessions. And/Or if there are any questions or past-paper help I will guide through the important facts through the paper.

In any case, more importantly, I believe the tutee him/herself should lead the sessions, if they are going to be effective, and this is why I will encourage you to think more independently but still supporting you. Normally in the sessions I would give explanations along with worked examples discussing with the tutee. In the midst I would make sure the student understands the core of the concept and the chain of thoughts is complete at each stage.

  • A-Level or Highers (£28 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a successful, elite tutor and lecturer, and have taught a variety of school, undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD students.

I have studied a broad range of subjects during my Bachelor's degree (English and Classics, RHUL) and Master's (Comparative Art and Archaeology with Law, UCL). I play a lot of sport (lacrosse, rugby and athletics) and have captained teams at national and regional level.

Please note the history tuition I offer is Ancient History, Classics, Archaeology and Classical Civilizations.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring Approach:

Academic experience: I have worked in private tutoring, state and private schools, university departments and know how examiners mark and what they expect. I have worked for 2 prestigious Universities and am adept at entrance documents and applications. In addition, one needs to be constantly aware of the changing curricula, mark schemes, and student specifications, knowledge and understanding of which can guarantee a 95%+ grade.

Encouragement: As a sports captain and Global Citizenship Mentor (UCL) I realise the need for a pupil's confidence to be built up before they can achieve better. In my opinion a pupil is never failing, they can just achieve more.

Planning: It is essential for us to have an organised lesson plan, and plan for our future sessions so we can map where we should be heading and what we have achieved. Many students suffer from poor organisation which, if remedied, would immediately proffer far better results.

Education: During my past 8 years of college, undergraduate and graduate university I have been educated in a host of valuable disciplines that help interest and inspire any student.

Personal Description:
After obtaining a masters degree in Mathematics from Queen Mary University I have been working as a maths tutor since 2011. As a result apart from familiarising myself well with the UK system and curriculum I have further developed my experience and teaching skills.
I'm very friendly and passionate with what I do. I'm enthusiastic with teaching and maths, and trying to pass this feeling to my students as well. Maths is not plainly something you have to learn but something fun you can learn. Of course we all care about grades but what counts most at the end of the day is the new mindset you have acquired, upon which you can carry on building within any discipline.
As for my tutoring method, I strive to create a well balanced relationship with pupils. I set clear targets for my students and expect them to develop throughout our sessions. I emphasize on the suitable approach for each individual in order to have the best results possible. Finally, I consider humour an essential part of my sessions as it creates a better learning environment and a more enjoyable session.
It was only last year that I attempted to expand my lessons to the online realm. I've had pupils from all over UK that were looking for the best fit of a tutor, or university students that studied in London but wanted help even when away. Thus, I have now shifted my focus to online tuition and I'm trying to provide the most suitable digital environment with the necessary learning tools and aids.

Teaching Experience:

Have been working as a maths tutor for pupils taking common entrance, GCSE, IGCSE, A-levels and undergraduates, for the past three years.

Below there's a selection of past and on going clients:
•Leyla: (17 yo) Home-tutoring for Maths AS-level. Focusing on C1, C2 and S1. Layla achieved an A.
•Nicole: (18 yo) Home-tutoring for Maths A2-level. Concentrating on C3, C4 and S2. Nicole's result was a B.
•Sharan: (1st year University of Bristol, Business Studies) Exercise sheet guidance and preparation for summer exams in Maths and Statistics.
•Seb: (17 yo) Weekend home-tutoring for Maths IGCSE. Went from a predicted C to a B. Currently assisting on A level C1, C2, S1; predicted A.
•James: (17 yo) Home-tutoring for Maths A2-level, focusing on C3, C4 and S2.
•Charlotte: (1st year University of Queen Mary, Mathematical Studies) Assisted with problem sheets and exam preparation on Calculus and Probability.
•Charles: (Adult learner, involved in banking) Providing maths revision on foundations of GCSE and A level syllabus.
•Cheyne: (2nd year Birkbeck Economics) Assistance given on understanding Quantitative Technics and exam preparation.

•Isabella: (18 yo girl) Home tutoring from IGCSE to A-level C1,C2,C3,C4,M1,S1; managed an overall B and successfully went on to study at Surrey University

Tutoring Approach:

I`m very flexible with days and times as long as sufficient notice is given.

*With regard to my rates, they are negotiable for block booking and I also offer a free trial for online sessions.

Personal Description:
My name is Iona, I'm currently studying my HND in Acting and Theatre Performance at Edinburgh's Telford college and hope to do my BA Hons degree next year. I've studied Theatre, Philosophy, Music, English, German and Spanish, and this year I am also touching on dance and vocal skills.

Teaching Experience:

I've done a JCSLA course whereupon I learnt how to teach and work with young people in a learning environment. My placement involved me doing an hour a week of teaching dance in a local primary school, where I learned how to interact with the children and work with them to incorporate their ideas and get the best results we could.
In my HNC course last year I had classes in how to run a drama workshop, and I've experienced hands on many youth theatre workshops and had lots of practice in drama games and exercises.
Last year I also tutored a student through Higher (AS Level) Philosophy.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm a very friendly girl and I like to make the learning environment as relaxed as possible, as I think this produces the best ideas. I'm quite interactive and hands on, and I like to use a lot of the student's own ideas and develop these, rather than spoon-feeding them, as I think in creative subjects, students flourish more with their own originality than with forced direction.
I don't set a lot of home-study as I appreciate students will already be receiving a lot, but there may be materials I will ask them to look over or read.

Subjects

Personal Description:
Hi,

My name is Kerry and I have a Masters in Translation and Interpreting plus a BA in Modern European Languages (French, Spanish, Italian)

Can show certificates as proof as and when required.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching English as a foreign language (in an Italian High School)
I also have experience teaching GCSE French/Spanish in an English High School.

Tutoring Approach:

I like learning to be fun, otherwise it becomes a chore.
I find that it helps when learning a language if you can relate to what you're learning. For this reason, expect a lot of current affairs, current music, current films etc. to be included in the tutoring.
Obviously, curriculum specific work can be carried out too.

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:
Hi I'm a postgraduate student studying Educational Studies in University of Glasgow. Both fluent in Mandarin and English, and can teach basic Japanese. I'm very passionate in teaching and helping. I can play Chinese instrument Erhu as well.

Teaching Experience:

3 years of teaching experiences in China.
Currently teaching 2 students.

Tutoring Approach:

I'll make students speak Chinese in a right tone and make them know how to start daily conversations.
I have my own special way of teaching Chinese and will share my experience of learning another language so that it can help with the Chinese learning.
For Japanese learning, students can manage hiragana and katakana well, and learn how to use Japanese to communicate.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from Oxford University with a First Class Honours degree in MMath. Currently preparing for full time employment starting from September 2017, I am spending the year focusing on consolidating my skill sets as well as performing regularly with my musical ensembles.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored privately for 6 years now, teaching all levels between Secondary and University standard. I specialise in maths, but am happy to tutor in any of the subjects I have studied to the appropriate level. In spite of having personally achieved the highest possible grades in every public exam I have taken, my proudest achievement to date is passing on this record to every one of my tutees, up to and including a 7 at Higher Level IB Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel it is important to find the way in which the tutee prefers to learn. From my own experience of schools, class teaching can be homogenised and lack the personal touch that is often required to catalyse the best results. My previous tutees have seen me as rigorous but sympathetic; not afraid to share a joke or two.
