Personal Description:
I have recently completed my PhD at the University of Dundee.

I enjoy reading various philosophy from Ancient Greek to modern postmodernism.

Teaching Experience:

I am a current tutor for the philosophy department at the University of Dundee. I also teach the philosophy summer course for the university.

I have been a tutor for 5 years and teaching the summer course for 2 years.

I also previously taught an adult course for the University of Dundee based on a causal reading of the philosophy of Plato.

Tutoring Approach:

Philosophy is a difficult subject to understand with technical concepts and explanations. My teaching approach simplifies these concepts and explanations by relating them to everyday examples. Also where appropriate they are also related to film and tv examples. This approach then aims to clarify and help the student's understanding but also make the learning process fun and engaging.

Philosophy is also a subject that encourages critical thinking. I encourage my students to be critical of the philosophers and ideas that are being discussed. Their criticisms then can illuminate a deep problem in the philosophy or be comparable to another philosopher's objection.

Resolution of any problems or issues that arise whilst addressing a philosopher is also key. This is because no problem is trivial and helps to clarify the student's understanding and also make the text easier to understand. Any problem will be addressed such as difficultly in understanding an area in the text, concept, or in understanding another philosopher's criticism.

Homework will be given that covers the discussion. Typically these questions will be for the student to give an explanation of concept and how this can be practically applied.

Overall my teaching approach is:
*Simplification of Ideas
*Use of everyday, TV and film examples
*Resolution of student's problems
*Homework based on the discussion to clarify the student's understanding

Subjects
  • Philosophy / Critical Thinking
  • GCSE or Standards (£20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I think i am able to inspire and make the lessons instructive but also fun. I think variety of pace and changes in activity ensure good progress and keep students attentive and motivated. Lots of positive encouragement and feedback on a regular basis and students should also be encouraged to feedback on their own learning and any difficulties they may have. I think I have a good sense of humour and this helps me to keep the lesson dynamic and lively and make the lessons memorable.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught over the last 27 years and my teaching has included several subjects: English as a foreign language and English (including English as a foreign language) and I have also taught primary Maths and the piano up to grade 4 . I have taught History and French at all levels and Geography and Biology up to National 5 level ( lower level) I have also taught art and design up to university level and currently provide art classes for children in my home every week.

Tutoring Approach:

I think learning takes place when students feel free to give it a go and make mistakes without any fear of negative remarks from the teacher. Good teaching is about establishing a relationship of trust with the student and customising the lessons to the needs of the pupil. A sense of humour is essential to help overcome obstacles and keep a positive atmosphere. Students should be encouraged to give regular feedback about the lessons.They should be encouraged to teach back to the teacher to demonstrate understanding and proper grading of the work should increasingly develop the students' confidence. Lessons are well organised in advance but also allow for flexibility in approach to individual students

Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old tutor based in south east London. For the past twelve years I have been teaching pupils of all ages and abilities in many different capacities and have an excellent success rate with my pupils.

I also work with children with behavioural difficulties/learning disabilities and with adults of all ages and nationalities.

Should you wish to use me, you would encounter a tutor easy to relate to and learn from in an enjoyable and easy environment. I believe a student who is abler ease with their tutor is far more likely to progress no matter where they are starting from!

I hope very much to hear from you soon.

Teaching Experience:

St Bees School 1998-present: Various unpaid voluntary work. Drama work-shop leader on summer-camp. Directing, play-writing, and work-shopping school Junior & Senior plays
2002: Clementine School, Hong Kong EFL Teaching Assistant. Assisting head English language teacher
2002: Hong Kong Institute for young offenders. Spanish Teacher. Teaching basic Spanish to young non English speaking offenders prior to their exchange to Chile
2005-2006: Private Tuition (Ashtead, Surrey) Private tutor. Various pupils for Spanish, English Literature, Drama & English language
2006-Present: Southwark Council. Supply Teaching with 'Classroom' agency. Work with children from mainstream, secondary & primary PRUs and learning difficulty schools.
Private Tuition (Paddington) Private tutor
Government-funded scheme to increase literacy levels amongst primary school pupils
2006-Present: Private Tuition in in all subjects and age ranges offered throughout London.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe one to one private tuition requires a tutor who can adapt to the needs of the pupil.

I would wish to meet the pupil initially to establish how they may best be assisted and what the pupil's key areas of concern are.

In short, each mind, young or old, needs different approaches and I believe my strongest ability is an adaptability to meet the varying needs and requirements of every student.

My approach, in most cases would be to follow a curriculum, finding out where their difficulties lie within this curriculum and how it would be best to resolve them.

I tend to use past papers when it comes to exam based tuition as this is ultimately what they will be faced with come exam time! However, when I have a pupil for longer there is more scope for more imaginative teaching or simply assistance with difficult homework.

With each of my previous pupils I have needed and been able to assist them in a way that is individually appealing to them and I have never had a pupil who has not achieved their desired results.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified English teacher, having studied English at Queen Mary University of London (BA hons 2.1). I completed my PGCE at The University of Nottingham in 2010.

Personal Description:
My name is Kieran and I am an enthusiastic English student currently studying at Loughborough University. I have worked in the theatre for around eight years and am therefore incredibly confident and easily approachable. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at school and always thought about the prospect of teaching or tutoring so that I could pass on my knowledge and love for English to those who perhaps need some extra help in reaching those top grades at GCSE and AS level. My age also allows me to empathise with current GCSE and A-Level students as it was not long ago that I sat those exams myself. I am therefore confident with current exam board syllabuses and the relevant texts being studied. Please feel free to contact me regarding the tutoring of English Literature.

Teaching Experience:

Supervisor and staff at Rainham School for Girls summer school 2012.
Volunteer at local theatre group teaching 7 - 18 year olds music.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very relaxed attitude towards tutoring as I believe this is the best environment to learn. Students will bring current school work with them to the session and we will work through any problems or issues that they are struggling with. As well as this, I will prepare literary examples and worksheets if students give me notice as to what they wish to study during the coming session. I am completely dedicated to helping and supporting those who need an extra push during exams or even just wish to receive extra guidance within the field of English Literature.

Personal Description:
I'm 28 and a recent graduate Agriculture and International Development at the University of Lund, Sweden. I have a 2:1 (hons.) in Biology from Newcastle University. I enjoy travel and have lived, worked and studied in Japan, Sweden and Chile, which has given me thorough understanding of different styles of learning and teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I worked for three years in Japan as a village primary and middle-school English teacher. Often this invoved planning and teaching large classes. It also involved a lot of one-to-one and small group tutoring. In addition I also undertook private English classes for adults and children of all ages (as young as 2 and as old as 70), including home visits. In addition I proofread essays for graduate students and offer advice on how to improve language and grammar. I have been living and tutoring in London for 6 months.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a relaxed and informal approach to learning. Stress is an inhibitor to clear thinking and understanding. My method of teaching has always been to encourage students to be enthusiastic and confident about what they do know first, before building upon that knowledge. I think it is important to bring all subjects out of books and into the real world, where it is possible to get involved and enthusiastic about the subject. Every student is different and it is my job, as the tutor, to help people learn in a manner which suits them. I like to mix real-world examples with exam question practice and also with open discussions at higher levels.

Personal Description:
Having completed a PGCE from the University of Oxford, I am a qualified Mathematics teacher, currently working at one of the top schools in the country. Tutoring is not something I just do on the side of another full time job; teaching Mathematics is my passion and career. During my Undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Warwick, I have spent time teaching Mathematics at schools in England and South Africa. Having worked as a private tutor for over five years, I provide top quality teaching that is tailored to the needs of each individual pupil. I am passionate about the teaching of Mathematics and seek to instil not just a deep relational understanding, but also an enthusiasm for Mathematics into his pupils.

Teaching Experience:

BSc in Mathematics, University of Warwick
PGCE in Mathematics, Keble College, Oxford
2 years teaching at one of the top boys' schools in the country (at present)
Private Mathematics tutor for over five years

Tutoring Approach:

It is my belief that every child has potential to achieve excellent results at school mathematics if they are provided with the correct support and work ethic. It is my aim to spend time with your child in order to design an individual teaching programme that will allow them to develop their strengths and work on the gaps in their knowledge. My tutoring is much more than supervising a child's school work or simply providing them with extra worksheets. As a full time Mathematics teacher, I can ensure that you will not only be getting a tutor who is incredibly dedicated, but also a teacher who has been trained and is practicing mathematics teaching at on the finest schools in the country.

Personal Description:
I am a practising barrister in Belfast with a background in French Law and European Studies. As a practising barrister I have a wide range of legal experience across a number of sectors including Land Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law, Family Law and of course European Law. I lived in France for a year and completed a specialised Diploma in European Law. I can converse fluently in French and I have an excellent knowledge of written French and French Grammar.

I have bases in Ballymena and Belfast and my practice as a barrister takes me to all parts of the country. As a result, I am available to travel to a range of destinations. Please do get in contact to determine whether I can be of assistance.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent many years teaching a wide range of people from very young children to adults.I tutor 2-3 times weekly in addition to my practice as a barrister and find that my practical knowledge is of a huge assistance to all my pupils in assisting them to reach their maximum potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach each pupil differently according to their personality, skill set and ability to progress. I find that generally no two pupils are the same therefore one-to-one tutoring invariable yields the best possible results. However I demand absolute commitment from each pupil and expect everyone to fulfil their potential, regardless of their age or experience.

As i have a wealth of practical knowledge, I find I can easily distill difficult concepts for students who are struggling with confusing legalese and complex academic arguments. I can help with assignments, practice papers, model answers, tutorials and more difficult concepts that arise in lectures.

Personal Description:
I grew up in south-west London, in Twickenham, before attending Tiffin School (Kingston-Upon-Thames) and Cambridge University, where I was awarded my BA (Hons) degree in History of Art. I have always engaged with extracurricular activities with enthusiasm, something which my educational institutions have given me ample opportunity to do.

My main passion has been acting. It has provided many opportunities to meet and get to know a huge range of different people, all in a challenging, intense environment. Fundamentally, it is the opportunity to engage with the perspective of another person and to attempt to embody this in actions and speech. It requires a performer to listen to and work with others on stage, and to work within a flexible, productive relationship - this is essential for any student-teacher relationship, as a dialogue begins to emerge.

My other interests have similarly complemented my academic pursuits: I have played rugby union for 14 years, up to and including university level, and used to play the french horn in the school orchestra. Both activities gave me an opportunity to voice my individual contribution to the group whilst working within a team, invaluable experience for academic discussion as well as confidence in many other areas of life. They offer different approaches to problem solving and develop some of the broader skills essential for academic success, such as self-expression, articulation, flexibility and confidence.

Teaching Experience:

My experience includes working with primary school students (age 4-6), through a voluntary program at secondary school. This involved helping children to learn to read. The weekly session required empathy and flexibility on my part, demanding an understanding that each child`s ability was completely unique, and that my approach needed to be modified to fit each person. In particular, I had to cultivate patience and a desire to listen and to understand everything the child was saying.

Whilst at university I also participated in a student run mentoring scheme, which gave unprivileged children the opportunity to understand life and work at Cambridge. It was a fascinating opportunity to understand some of the social and personal blocks to academic confidence, as well as offering ways in which these problems might be developed and overcome. Most importantly, it was a joyful experience to be able to help a younger person, and to understand that they were a unique person with their own approach to problems and solutions. By listening to him, I gradually learnt the ways in which they best communicated and how I could use those situations to our advantage as a student-teacher pair.

More recently, I have participated in a student-run university theatre tour which also comprised educational workshops. These workshops were a much bigger part of the tour than we had originally thought, and proved to be challenging at times. This was partly from the language barrier (many classes spoke little to no English, and were often too embarrassed to speak at all), but also from the unpredictable nature of the students. We had to work on our feet, employing what resources we had in a way which was meaningful, cumulative and ultimately led to an end. Our exercises required an overall structure and an ultimate purpose, but we also wanted to adjust this according to their reactions. Though I initially found this challenging, towards the end of the tour I could take charge of workshops and lead them with ease.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching and intellectual discussion have always been an important part of my family life, and it is an activity which I enjoy on a personal as well as professional level. My time at university has developed my ability to think in this way, as well as providing an environment in which I was surrounded by these kinds of discussion, with both professors and students. The emphasis on close-contact supervision periods at Cambridge taught me the importance of helping each student understand their individual form of expression.

I would avoid didactic repetition and seek to challenge the student and invite them to contribute. As well as work done outside the tutoring time period, I would encourage tasks such as presentations and prepared discussions as much as possible. I believe this work lays an essential base for passionate intellectual discussion, and it is something which certainly helped me in my university interview.

Coupled with this development of interest in particular subject areas, I would try to help the student's method of arguing and offer sustained, constructive advice on how that might be more effective. A university candidate is only as successful as their ability to communicate effectively and succinctly, something which may require exercises as different as confidence building or syntax and grammar. But as well as this self-belief and self expression, the student would need to acknowledge that academic (and educational) progress can be achieved by listening to others and attempting to understand their point of view. This dialogic aspect is essential to my tutoring approach.
