Personal Description:
Hello! I'm Calum and I am a Spanish graduate from Heriot-Watt University. I have spent many years studying and working throughout Spain, as well as teaching it as a foreign language and translating documents for different Spanish firms. Furthermore, I am a TEFL qualified ESOL (English as a second language) teacher and have taught a wide range of pupils from a variety of age groups.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in secondary school in Tarragona in Spain, taught in language academies, as well as ample experience giving private tuition. I have prepared pupils for official exams such as SQA exams, Cambridge exams etc.

Tutoring Approach:

I always ask my tutees to complete a needs analysis (provided by myself) to identify their learning style and the goals they hope to achieve from private tuition.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced and qualified tutor - I have a mathematics PhD and have been tutoring at all levels (from GCSE through to undergraduate) for over a decade. I believe any student can become strong in maths with good tuition and a little work.

I'm also the author of Basic Maths For Dummies, AS- & A-Level Maths For Dummies, and several more titles in the For Dummies range.

"I am planning on recommending Colin's tutoring to any of my friends who need help. He was patient and made the material easier to understand despite the fact that I hadn't taken math in years. I got a great grade too!"
- MC, Utah

Teaching Experience:

* Started tutoring GCSE maths while doing A-levels
* Tutored through university career
* Have always been complimented on my ability to make difficult ideas simple without patronising

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to encourage students to look at problems methodically and to help understand the ideas behind the theory by using simple, real-world examples. I teach that it's not just getting the right answer that is important, but understanding how you got there and knowing that the answer is right.

Lessons take place either online or at my classroom in Weymouth.

Personal Description:
I am a contemporary artist making visual art for exhibition, publication and screening. I make work in painting, photography and film and I also write and make books. My work often takes me to lots of interesting places around the country and abroad where I facilitate training in art and creativity with a range of community groups. I have been working as an artist in schools since 1997 particularly with primary school aged children. When I am not doing all of this i like to go to the theatre, galleries, travel and cook. I'm part of a local ladies football team who i train with every week and I commute by bicycle whenever I can as keeping fit and active is an important part of my lifestyle.

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching/facilitating as a training advisor in 2001 within a community arts project and adopted a participant-centred approach which was effective in working with participants who were partly or permanently excluded from school or/and living within the foster care system, or unemployed with no or little qualifications. My role was to facilitate the development of individualised project briefs and themes with participants based upon both their strengths and interests and build a programme of workshops to facilitate both creative and Key Skills development. Participants would be encouraged to work independently, individually and in groups in response to self-created briefs to produce a portfolio of creative work. I liaised with outside agencies within education, social services, and industry sectors to actively re-introduce and establish participants who had produced a body of work into full/part time education, work experience or/and relevant employment. The process of facilitation and consultation was quite challenging due to issues and barriers to learning and expression participants displayed and I developed an open, flexible and responsive attitude. Continual monitoring, informal and formal assessment strengthened the reflection and evaluation of participants engagement and progress which in turn led to further developments in implementing differentiated provision.
This experience laid the foundations for a teaching style that was inclusive in nature and was further developed throughout the following years (2002-) of artistic practice that saw me facilitate skills in visual art production with a range of community groups. The combined experiences as a training advisor and as an artist/facilitator have merged into what I consider to be a teaching style that flourished with my role as lecturer on the photography degree at a local college. Working within an institution of further and higher education as a lecturer was a stark contrast to what I had engaged in before and required me to teach within established schemes of work and modes of delivery. I adapted myself to this successfully maintaining a creative and individualised approach to teaching within a framework. The following academic year in 2007 I was given the responsibility of devising the scheme of work and mode of delivery for the critical and theoretical studies module on the photography degree, which was to be co-delivered with a new member of staff.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout employment as a lecturer and training advisor my approach and teaching style took into consideration each student's individual circumstances, their interests, needs, abilities, and learning styles, adapting the teaching content and style to ensure student engagement. I am also aware of what is needed to effectively strike a balance between individual student aspirations and abilities against collective requirements stipulated by a curriculum. I've worked with students from both vocational and academic backgrounds, with disaffected and culturally diverse youth age groups, with students who have alternative and changing lifestyles, mental health and physical conditions, and do so by adapting style and content to structure and scaffold their journey through the course offering the relevant support and pastoral care.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a friendly and qualified 1-to-1 tutor with lots of experience, living in South East London.

I've lived and worked in Spain on three separate occasions: I find its culture, history and languages fascinating.

I also teach English as a foreign language, and you couldn't be in a better city to learn English - London is fantastic! Welcome!

Teaching Experience:

I did a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages at Exeter University in 2007, and a CELTA (TEFL) at St Giles College, Brighton in 2005. Since then I've been teaching on and off in the UK and Spain, and completing my Masters degree in Spanish Translation.

I have taught Young Learners of 5+ years, through teenagers and up to adults - the majority of my experience is with teenagers.

My 1-1 students have all passed their GCSE, AS and A2 level exams with B's, A's and A*'s. Moreover, we have built good relationships together and learnt from each other along the way. References can be supplied if you wish.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a creative person, spontaneous yet thoughtful, and I like to tailor my approach on an individual basis. I try to keep my lessons a fair mix of listening, speaking, reading and writing practice though, all with good momentum and interest levels. You tell me what interests you - from One Direction to global warming! - and we'll incorporate it into activities so that you are more engaged with your learning.

My speciality is grammar; helping you overcome any grammar-related fears in foreign languages, to get you confident about your own ability to comprehend how language works and start manipulating it yourself.

I can travel to you, for a slightly higher hourly fee, or you can come to my house. In any case, I look forward to hearing from and working with you!

Personal Description:
I am a returning ex-pat having lived and worked in Spain for 13 years. I learned Spanish naturally and have a similar approach to teaching. I use the similarities between the languages to lower barriers and make learning fun and easy. I teach natural Spanish not endless grammar or lists of nouns or verbs. I have been in a face to face environment all my working life and put people at their ease quickly. I have used the language in both a casual and business environment.

Teaching Experience:

As a private tutor I have been helping students for over 3 years now. I have developed a method of making the language accessible and easy to speak. There are no verb lists. Here's the challenge: I can teach present tense verb endings in 10 minutes, past tense in 5 minutes and future in one minute. How long have you been trying? Make learning fun!

Tutoring Approach:

I learned Spanish naturally and have a similar approach to teaching. I use the similarities between the languages to lower barriers and make learning fun and easy. I teach natural Spanish not endless grammar or lists of nouns or verbs. Students find my methods fun and relevant. I can offer support to academic learning within a curriculum or help people to get by on holiday. If required I can take a student through to fluency in a manner more suited to everyday use.

Personal Description:
I have recently semi-retired back to Oxford after two careers: the first in journalism and the second as a teacher and minor academic, having spent the past four years lecturing in English literature at university level. I am, however, a traditionally trained teacher, having qualified at the University of Oxford 20 years ago with the full secondary PGCE in English, with history as my second subject. I can teach all aspects of English and all periods of literature from GCSE level upwards, but undergraduate students may want to know that my academic specialism is in 19th century literature, and my doctoral research was on Dickens. Alongside my tutoring work, I continue to do examining, coursework moderation and consultancy work for the leading exam board in the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' experience, mainly teaching all three varieties of A level English to the specifications of three different awarding bodies, at various colleges of further education. I also have considerable experience of GCSE English (mainly post-16 retakes, also in the FE context) and have taught within a local authority adult education service, as well as at university. I also have several years' prior experience of seeing one-to-one students privately. I have been an examiner for A level English literature since 2000, a coursework moderator for the same since 2009, and am currently a senior examiner for A level English language and literature.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I think I am friendly and approachable, adopting an informal style of session, though I do insist on academic rigour where it is called for, and I have the expertise to back it up. I believe in a collaborative approach, with the full and ongoing involvement of parents, particularly of younger students, and would also expect to liaise by e-mail with the student's English teacher at school. I see the tutor's role as supporting mainstream education, not as something separate from it. I am aways well prepared, and wil go the extra mile by researching material which students have to cover, as well as reading and where appropriate marking students' work, in my own time.

Personal Description:
I am a fun-loving, chatty and bubbly person and committed to the success and achievement of my students. I try to incorporate humour into my lessons as much as possible as students are more likely to remember what they have learnt that way. I am out-going and always look forward to meeting new people. I am a native english speaker and CELTA qualified. I teach all areas of EFL but definitely prefer to teach conversational and business english.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified in September 2013 and have been teaching ever since then. I have got 7 hours class teaching experience but the rest and the majority of my experience lies with teaching adults in a 1:1 setting.

Tutoring Approach:

I tend to take a fairly laid back approach to teaching (depending on the student's requirements). I take a very pro-active approach and try and make the lessons as fun as possible, thus the student gains more from them and is more likely to remember what they have learnt. I encourage students to use what they have learnt outside of lessons, thus increasing their practice time and therefore improving their english immensely. I can set homework if I feel it is necessary but the responsibility to complete that work lies within the student. I motivate my students to go above and beyond the standard requirements. If the student is committed then this is always reciprocated.

Personal Description:
** MONEY BACK GUARANTEE** If you are not satisfied with me as tutor after the free first lesson, I will personally compensate you in full for the fee charged on this website to get my contact details.

Hi, I've been studying on an undergraduate Biomedical Science BSc degree at the University of Leeds. I first started tuition in 2012.

Teaching is my specialty, and I love teaching Biology. I`ve had experience teaching A-Level Biology (including AQA and OCR) to many students and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm determined to help other students successfully study this brilliant subject. I have also voluntarily been teaching students, mainly between the age of 12-18 at an established educational institute in Bradford for sixteen months.

With each student, I made sure my lessons are focused and very efficient, making sure the student thoroughly understands the topic area. After this, I move on to practicing exam style questions with each student (which is critical for a strong exam performance).

I`m currently offering GCSE/A-Level Biology tuition to students in the Bradford District for 10 per hour (with the first lesson free).

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Ahmad.

Personal Description:
I am an A level biology examiner as well as being a fully qualified science teacher with over ten years of experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science to GCSE level and A level biology for over ten years in secondary schools. Since relocating to Stroud, I have tutored students in A level biology for the past four years. I am also an examiner for OCR A level biology. The experience of marking A level papers has enabled me to help my tutees effectively prepare for exams.

Tutoring Approach:

The style of tutoring needed by individual students will vary. It may start with ensuring understanding of the key concepts in biology at an appropriate level. The jump to A level from GCSE is quite considerable and even the brightest students can struggle initially. Another essential skill needed is the ability to pull together biological content taught in different parts of the syllabus. As exam time approaches, a student has to apply their knowledge and understanding to real exam questions. Practice of exam technique is often a large part of a tutorial session in the run up to A level exams. I am able to give feedback on individual questions which enables a student to improve and hone their answers.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Ana. Nice to meet you!

I am a qualified and experienced language tutor based in Edinburgh. If you or your child are having difficulties with Spanish or German, preparing for National 5 or GCSE exams, or perhaps just need some extra support with schoolwork, I can help.

I am a Spanish native speaker born and raised in Spain. I attended University both in Spain and Germany. After graduating I moved to Germany permanently, where I spent seven years working as a translator for the United Nations. I love foreign languages and I want you to love them too (or at least, not dread them). I'm fully fluent in German. Having learned it as a second language myself, I know all the tricky bits and how to explain them so you'll understand them once and for all.

Now I live in beautiful Edinburgh, where I have set up my own tutoring and translation business. My mission is to help students like you get better grades in Spanish and German.

Private tutoring can do wonders for a student's confidence. Whether you are struggling to keep up in class or just need a bit of extra support, you'll benefit greatly from one-to-one tuition. After a few sessions with me you can be sure to make tangible progress that will be reflected on your grades. If you're stressed about sitting National 5 or GCSE in May, stop worrying. I'm here to make sure you are fully prepared for exam success.

Exam time looms but it's not too late! Let me help you get the grades you long for.

Teaching Experience:

I am passionate about helping my students to improve their grades and achieve their full potential in Spanish and German. Over the years, I have:

Gathered +1000 hours of one-to-one tutoring
Helped students to build confidence and achieve exam success
Raised the performance of students by at east one full letter grade
Received positive feedback from students and parents

Tutoring Approach:

Often in school there is only a limited time to review a student's work and understanding. That may not always be enough. Having a private tutor gives students an extra chance to review the areas in which they may be struggling. We work together on the areas of the language that require improvement (grammar, spelling, essay writing) building up a solid foundation. I have a range of extra exercises & activities to reinforce what is being taught at school.

For help with school lessons, we sit together and go through your homework or class work. In doing that, we will come across the concepts that are giving you trouble and I will fill in the gaps.

If you need help to prepare for National 5 or GCSE, we work with past and specimen papers almost entirely, honing exam technique until it becomes second nature.

Get in touch now to find out how I can help you get better grades!

Personal Description:
I am a professional, conservatoire trained, theatre director, drama and LAMDA teacher based in London. My greatest strengths are my creativity on stage, ability to manage and communicate with people and to generally be an effective leader of different age groups, from Age 5 to Age 65.

My theatre voyage stydying MFA Theatre Directing at East 15 Acting School provided Jacques Lecoq puppet, clown and physical training and core modules examining Shakespeare, musical theatre, opera, comedy, contemporary British writing and actor training which has informed my practice as a teacher and director.

A huge part of my study was on theatre of the East, where I visited Bali, Indonesia for one term to study at Institut Seni Indonesia (ISI Denpasar). Here I had intensive training on forms such as Topeng Masked Dance, Legong Dance, Wayang Kulit and an introduction to Balinese Hinduism and performance cultures along with the opportunity to collaborate with actors, directors and filmmakers, and world-famous industry professionals.

I believe my administrative experience, my sales and marketing capabilities, together with my teaching and theatre qualifications with a healthy dose of imagination and a playful nature have all added to my effectiveness as an director, accomplished administrator, communicator and good all rounder.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked consistently in London theatres and in schools over the last 7 years and most recently have been working as the Artistic Director of Fusion Theatre Company, a company I founded, developing shows, workshops, education packs and training programs for pupils and teachers linking with National Curriculum Topics in order to utilise drama as a tool for learning. Most recently I have set up a LAMDA training section of the company, offering group sessions, duologue and monologue sessions for primary and secondary school.

Although I do the majority of my work within Theatre in Education and drama training, I also am currently the Associate Director of Maverick Theatre, whos mandate is to create reimaginations of classic literature in unexpected places.

Prior to setting up my own company, I was an assistant director, teaching assistant and technical operator at Trent College, for a number of shows, abridging and cutting scripts, marketing the school's productions, organising the shared diary and assisting with general curriculum work, organising year 9 classes and office administration. During that time I also worked as a LAMDA teacher with 14 students of my own, all of whom successfully achieved Grades 2 and 3 at the end of the summer term. During my second year I was given the opportunity to direct my own productions, as well as a substantial pay increase. I directed a sixth form production of "Two" by Jim Cartwright, followed by The Sixth Form Review [a comedy sketch show], a production of "Shakers" by John Godber, and a production of "Equus" by Peter Shaffer, and finally an outdoor theatre production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with a year 7 group. Two years of hands-on experience in education taught me the fundamental rules of theatre, production, discipline and how to motivate others to give their best performance.

Theatre plays a vital role in education to nurture and create opportunities for young people, using the arts as a vehicle to understand the world they live in and the people they are as well as develop crucial life skills. I believe that the most effective way to learn is through theatre and performance and because of this I have an incredible love for youth theatre and working with children and find it extremely rewarding.

Since my study, I have been doing workshops and acting courses with students from University upwards. Whether it be a specific genre of theatre or audition pieces.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is completely guided by the person I am working with. My natural instincts as a teacher are to get the student to relate to the material as well as they can by giving them something to compare it with in their own life. As a student of LAMDA since age five and from my extensive experience as a tutor throughout my career I discovered that by adopting a personal approach to teaching and mentoring, identifying the individual strengths of each student, and harnessing and working with those strengths, I was able to yield some incredible results not just within primary and secondary school but utilising this practice for all ages.
