Personal Description:
HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND SUCCESSFUL TUTOR WITH 8 YEARS TEACHING AND TUTORING EXPERIENCE


I have a 1st Class Hons degree in Biology from Imperial College London and a PGCE from Kings College London.
I have extensive assessment experience including as an examiner for OCR, giving me an excellent insight into what students actually get the marks for at GCSE and how to answer questions successfully.

I have wide experience in teaching Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (ages 11-18) and have been consistently graded either Good or Outstanding in my lessons.

Additionally, I have tutored a number of primary students to raise confidence or prepare them for secondary school.

I am passionate about my subject and am keen to pass this on to my students.

I have a record of excellent results for students in all 3 sciences and a proven track record at getting pupils to their target grade or better.

Teaching Experience:

KS3 Science and maths
KS4 Triple and double science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology, GCSE and BTEC)
KS5 Biology

I have taught for 8 years in London and Bristol, at key stage 3, 4 and 5 for both double award and triple science GCSE and A level for biology which is my main specialist subject.

I have been graded as outstanding in the majority of my lesson observations over my teaching career and have an excellent record of achievement with all of my classes.

I am very experienced in tutoring science and confidently offer maths as an additional subject to GCSE.

I am currently teaching at School in Bristol where I am teaching KS3, KS4 Science (both the triple and the double award) and A level biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tutor according to individuals needs. I am happy to work through homework, coursework and projects and to help students revise, depending on their requirements for that session, although I will not simply give out the answers but will help them work them out.
I am flexible with my tutoring and am happy to do it weekly or more or less regularly depending on what is is desired, as I only accept a few students at a time, in order to fully cater for my students.

I aim to build a relationship with my students where they are happy to ask any and all questions and lead their own learning in this way. I find that the range of methods and resources I have acquired as a qualified teacher help me to tutor to the individual needs of the student. I am more than happy to adapt methods of learning to assist students learning.

I am usually able to bring a good range of resources but request that pupils provide their school work and books so I can make sure I am teaching the right things.

Personal Description:
SUMMER OFFER: first lesson free, second lesson half price, third lesson one-third off, fourth lesson one-quarter off, fifth and sixth lessons normal prices (terms and conditions apply).

As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

Now, with over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of institutions - from Oxbridge entrance to comprehensives on 'Special Measures' - I am young enough to remember my struggles and old enough to know better.

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

This is my eighth year as a full-time tutor, but I was a secondary school teacher for 19 years before that.

I have experienced many types of academic performance from high-performing grammar schools to comprehensives on 'special measures'. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility within schools, particularly in the pastoral system such as Head of Year. I have been a grade-A examiner for AQA GCSE Geography.

During the last eight years of 11 Plus entrance 15 out of my 25 students have passed. I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, a 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts. Three out of five 12+ and 13+ tutees I have taught have passed their exams.

I have taught numerous syllabi: in the last six years I have tutored AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC at A level Geography. Indeed, I taught the whole of the A2 Edexcel Geogaphy syllabus online to one a tutee in Moscow: he has now gained a place at Aston University. I have mainly tutored the AQA and Edexcel syllabi for GCSE Maths. It would be fair to say that the overwhelming majority of my A level tutees experience significant gains and regularly obtain A or B grades.

At the moment (March 2015) I have 20 tutees in total: this includes 4 home-school tutees doing a variety of subjects such as GCSE Maths and Geography as well as Key Stage 3 Maths, English, History, Geography, Citizenship and RE; three GCSE English tutees; one Key Stage 3 Maths tutee; two Key Stage 3 English tutees; three 12 Plus tutees; five Key Stage 2 Maths tutees; two GCSE Maths tutee; one KS5 numeracy tutee, one A Level Geography tutee and, finally, three GCSE Geography tutees.

I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

Tutoring and learning should be natural and intuitive so that tutees can 'fly' by themselves.

To make the most of tuition, a tutee must be 'on-board'. If it's their idea - even better. A tutee that is in-charge of their own learning makes an excellent pupil.

As a tutor, I decide what is right for the tutee - not an institution. Parents often want someone who is familiar with the education system but independent enough to give an honest assessment. My main concern is the welfare of the tutee - not just their academic progress - nor the reputation of some teacher or institution. If something is not right for a tutee, no matter how forceful a parent might be or how much money I might lose, I simply will not do it. Each year there are a handful of tutees I turn away because of this.

In the first session I will try to identify what it is the tutee needs, and you may wish to quiz me in more detail. I will need access to school reports and examples of the tutee's work. Through discussion with my tutee and parental input it should become clear the reason for the tutoring.

From this 'snag' list, I will design a bespoke program to meet the educational needs of the tutee. It is flexible and, unlike a classroom situation, I can respond immediately to the needs of the tutee.

Homework will always be set, depending upon the demands placed upon the tutee by the normal school week. The tutee will be far more involved with learning than in a normal school class where they can 'hide', so prospective tutees need to expect plenty of chat and discussion, reviewing work and giving feedback.

For learning to be 'on the wing', to be natural and instinctive, tutees need to work hard without feeling the burden. This can only happen through enjoyment and a lot of laughter. That's my part: helping tutees to work really hard without realising it.

If at any point I feel unable to help, I won't just prolong tuition, or if our work has met its aims then I will call a halt. The point of tuition is not to need me anymore, so they can 'fly' all by themselves.

I offer two types of 'remote' tuition options at the moment:

i/ ONLINE FACE-TO-FACE TUITION: face-to-face on Skype is very good in dealing with syllabus issues and reinforcing and filling in the holes the class teachers leave behind. Face-to-face tuition lends itself well to visual resources such as diagrams, maps and pictures. It is primarily discussion-based and the tutee needs to take notes as we go along. I regularly send tutees files to prepare them for the lesson and to discuss in the lesson. If a tutee comes to face-to-face tuition and expects to be spoon-fed or entertained, it just won't work. Extra work can be set to test their written understanding. Usually, it is enough to go through topics the student struggles with. Once they 'click' with the topic/issue, we move onto other areas. Payment for this type of tuition is a flat fee each week to cover lesson preparation and the lesson itself. The marking of substantial pieces of work outside of lesson time such as essays will incur a modest marking fee.

ii/ CORRESPONDENCE-STYLE WITH UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT: work is set through powerpoints, pdf files and word documents for the student to do on their own in their own time. This should keep the tutee occupied for between 1-3 hours each week, unless more is required. It is then returned to me within the week. I mark it and provide feedback in the form of an audio file (up to 30 mins), talking them through the various issues. Any amounts of email conversations to help the student with this particular piece of work are allowed, after feedback has been given. This is very much an ongoing and open-ended commitment, once work has been set and feedback given, and the student is totally free to contact me with any issues. As a result, the payment structure is open-ended and depends on the amount of time used to prepare resources, mark and give audio feedback. This is added up at the end of each week, and the client is then billed. Follow-up emails and support are not timed but are considered as a 'free' part. Generally, this time will be from about 45-90 mins per week. I keep a track of the time minute to minute and endeavour to keep the time used as short as possible while setting about 1-3 hours of work. This is very much a trust system of working. I tailor the work individually to suit the student as opposed to an ordinary correspondence course that just covers syllabus content.

Please be aware that I do charge for travelling over 30 miles (roundtrip: 15 miles each way):
30-40 mile roundtrip - £5
41-50 mile roundtrip - £10
51-60 mile roundtrip - £15
61-70 mile roundtrip - £20

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Mark and I have lived in Belfast for 20 years. I have always loved mathematics, and loved learning more about it. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject to you and help you maximise your potential. If you're coming up to major exams, I can help you get the best grade possible for you!

Teaching Experience:

I have lectured in Queen's University for 10 years, and have been teaching others mathematics for longer. My private students have done well with my support, and I can bring the best out of you too.

Tutoring Approach:

For some people maths is easy and enjoyable - you just need help sharpening up your examination skills and revising in a new way to get a top grade.

For other people maths is a challenge - you get the general idea but need help understanding some principles, and certainly need to practice in order to get the grade you deserve.

I have worked with both types of people for years, and I can work with you! I offer one-to-one tutorial sessions, in my home or yours, backed up by email and telephone support where needed.

Personal Description:
I am an actor. I studied Modern Languages (French and Spanish) at the University of Durham which included time living and studying in Vigo (Spain) and Clermont-Ferrand (France) and then Acting at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London.

Teaching Experience:

Following completion of my CELTA qualification in Spain in 2007 (which involved teaching adult learners of English), I have variety of experience in teaching from helping fellow students at University, teaching English in a French Lyce and at summer school in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

The important part of tutoring is creating a more individual approach to learning and the subject or subjects. I feel it is important to discover what about the subject interests the tutee or how we can hook the topic to the individual so that you feel the desire to learn more about the subject of your own accord. It is important that learning is fun and not a chore and so, as well as thoroughly working towards any coming assessments, I like to work around the subject to find what it is about the subject is important to you so that the learning becomes grounded in the individual which gives a deeper knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
Hi! I'm in my final year of a French and Italian degree at UKC, where I'm reading lots of novels and writing essays on them! Last year I studied at universities in Geneva, Switzerland, and Bologna, Italy, where I also travelled. When I'm not in the library or a seminar, I love to cook, read, and write, I have my own blog. I can tutor in French, Italian, and English, up to A Level. I'm also willing to travel around North Kent, about 45 minutes outside of Canterbury, and tutor over email and webcam. We can cover anything on your course, from basic grammar and vocabulary to A Level cultural topics and speaking exams. Get in touch and we can see what would work best for you.

Teaching Experience:

At sixth form I helped several friends with their GCSE Italian work (they all achieved at least an A grade) and helped my younger sister with both her GCSE French work and her GCSE History coursework, for which she achieved and A* grade. When I was studying in Italy I also took a course on teaching languages to Primary School Children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is simple: start with the very basics and build on these once they are secure. I will help with homework and coursework as well as practice for exams. I am also happy to provide materials such as grammar exercises and mark these.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am 21, live in Hull and have been playing the drums for around 5 years. I am currently studying Music Performance at university and have just finished my first year in Bristol. I have lots of experience playing live with various artists and bands. I play many styles and appreciate all music as an art. I mainly play pop, rock and metal but am well grounded in jazz, latin, reggae, drum and bass, blues, hip hop and funk.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching; I started off doing it voluntarily to assist friends but the interest grew and I began getting more and more into it teaching from my home on my acoustic kit. I keep growing as a player and as a teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very passionate about teaching as I believe a good player doesn't make a good teacher. I believe in breaking things down to the simplest level to give the student the best foundation possible. I teach everything from beginner to advanced, all in accordance to want the student wants mostly, then I will create an appropriate plan for he/she. Many students (myself included) have been left disappointed by the lack of passion shown by teachers in whatever subject, which is why I wanted to start teaching in the first place

Personal Description:
An aspiring civil engineering student, possessing mathematical knowledge that I can use to help younger students improve their mathematical skills.
During A-Levels I constantly attended 'King's Factor' through King's College London. Where we logically analyse and solve STEP and MAT questions. This programme gave me the chance to improve my problem solving and critical thinking skills.
I am self-motivated, committed and determined to achieving my goals, come what may. By being a current Vice President for two different organisations, I have demonstrated good negotiating and organising skills, a firm sense of responsibility and capacity to work harder under pressure.

During my free time I skate, play basketball & badminton. I used to play basketball for a team and won fair amount of games. I am also a passionate musician who play drums, guitar, piano, clarinet and saxophone decently. I like to learn new things that's why I self-taught myself in playing this instruments. In addition to this, currently I have my own band, who played on several gigs and even won as first runner up for battle of the bands. Lastly, I collect different kinds of rubik's cube and puzzle twist, all which I can solve.

Teaching Experience:

Currently working part-time Tutor at Kumon Sheperds Bush
• Understood the meaning of support and patience

Guitar Tutoring
• Learned how to break patterns into simple components for better understanding

Retail Store
• Developed, and enhanced skills in attention to detail

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst working as a tutor, I discovered that teaching is not just about the kid being able to memorise the content, equations and even techniques, but also being able to understand them fully and able to apply them at any problem they may come across with.

Hence, for me as a tutor, I make sure that the student understands the knowledge behind the equations they use to solve a certain problem. So in the future they will also know the logic behind a logic.

Because for me, Mathematics is not just about being able to know the answer, its also about the steps, techniques and knowledge used in attaining the correct answer.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my undergraduate studies with a First in History at the university of Kent. I have always been committed to my academic career, being amongst the highest-attaining students at both school and university. I am a voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction; aside from this I enjoy films, rugby union and competitive gaming.

I enjoy helping people to learn and develop, and would be happy to help tutees with specific exams or assignments, to provide more general advice on techniques and skills, help tutees achieve a deeper understanding of a subject or offering. I have experience of proofreading and editing at university level.

Teaching Experience:

I attended sixth-form at Chancellor's School in Brookmans Park, which ran a programme in which students assisted with the teaching of a lower-school class, as well as a "buddy system", where sixth-formers mentored and assisted 3 new students with transition to senior school.

At university I strove to take an active part in my education in both university-organised and extra-curricular activities. I was frequently commended for my contributions to seminars and I often joined study-groups on my own initiative, helping others with their understanding of the various courses and with exam technique. I also frequently aided other students by proof-reading and editing their essays and assignments, to help them better apply the technique and style that was needed to attain the highest grades.

I am the Vice-President of ISHA (the International Students of History Association). This organisation arranges events to bring history students from across Europe together; participants take part in workshops, presenting papers then hosting a debate on the points raised by their work. I enjoyed these events immensely, not only for the opportunity to learn from and to teach students from varied backgrounds with differing approaches towards the study of history, but also for the support and the opportunity for development that they offer to students. I also helped edit ISHA's journal 'Carnival'. As well as giving me valuable skills in teaching, discussion and presentation of ideas, ISHA also gave me valuable experience of academic interaction with people for whom English is not their first language, teaching me to to alter my vocabulary and forms of expression to better convey ideas.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on my own experiences of studying and helping other students at school and university. I aim to teach exam technique and preparation advice, alongside essay-writing skills and time management. I have broad knowledge of English and History and can supplement other teaching to create a strong base of understanding to help tutees achieve desired grades. I also feel it is worth-while to go beyond the syllabus, as unusual, but pertinent, information can be the determining factor in pushing a candidate up a grade barrier.

Teaching Experience:

During my two years of sixth form, I was the sole student studying Further Mathematics AS. As such, I had to help my peers from different years with their studies.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Francis. I am a 28-year-old native English speaker based in Colchester. I hold a Joint Honours English Literature & History degree from York St John University. In 2003 the only A grade I received at GCSE level was in French. Between 2012 and 2014 I studied optional Mandarin and Spanish at university, having rekindled my own interest in, and talent for, language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience teaching English to both children and adults in Wuhan, China, during my time there.

Tutoring Approach:

As I have mentioned, learning foreign languages is both an interest and a talent of mine. However, I am equally interested in teaching my own first language to those who wish to learn it; the English language, both written and spoken, is a rich cultural tapestry going back into ancient times, and a functioning knowledge of it is a worthy addition to anybody's CV. I believe that encouragement and positive reinforcement are the key to success in any endeavour, and accordingly I hope you will find me to be a friendly, positive, encouraging and patient tutor.

I am hoping to work with anyone who wishes to improve their English skills. I can help you improve your grammar, spelling, pronunciation, vocabulary or conversational skills, and I can also teach you some things about British culture and history if you wish; while learning a language is important, it is also necessary to know a certain amount of background about the place where it is spoken. It does not matter if you are not yet fluent - what's most important is that you are willing to learn, and will enjoy doing so. I aim to put the student first, and with this in mind we will discuss and then tackle subject matter appropriate to your age, ability, personal interests, and study aims.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£14 p.h.)

View Thomas's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
Originally from Birmingham, qualified in Anatomy in the University of Dundee, I am now studying for a PhD in Anatomy in Leeds University. I have previous experience teaching in Anatomy, as well as private tuition for A Level maths and biology, and GCSE subjects including all Sciences, Maths, English literature and language and have often supported students in other areas they are struggling. I take pride in my work, so I ensure that I do reading prior to tuition and if there is anything I have missed out or wish to add/correct, I ensure that this information is passed on as soon as possible, and then covered in the next session as a revision.

I am a hard worker, with experience in managerial experience, teaching experience in different settings and am often used to proofread works from a variety of people. I'm not afraid to dive in to the deep end and I relish the opportunity to learn something new - something I aim to pass on when I am tutoring.

### Please note I can also teach Anatomy to a university level for £20 an hour ###

Teaching Experience:

I am currently an anatomy demonstrator for many students at the University of Leeds. I have privately tutored two academic students - one a GCSE student in a private school, and another in A Levels. In addition to this, I often proofread works relating to history, heritage management, computing and forensics all to a university level.

I have taught 40 volunteers skills such as active listening, customer experience, empathic communications, emotional resilience and methods of providing support.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand students sometimes take a while to grasp a key point - sometimes this might be because the concept is new, or sometimes it is because the approach to the subject isn't in a way that the student prefers. I prefer to identify the method of learning that ensures retention of information the best and utilize that. I have a can-do attitude and won't allow negativity. It is usually just that this subject needs to be addressed in a different method or that the student has lost motivation. In this case, I would allow for a break to get a glass of water and maybe revise a previous lesson for 5 minutes, before readdressing the more difficult subject.

Personal Description:
I'm a Brazilian freelance photographer and film-maker based in London. Specialized in making ethnographic videos and documentaries, I also film and photograph live events, including talks, workshops and performances. I have worked in the UK and internationally creating content for research agencies, charities, schools, universities, individuals and businesses.

I hold an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London. I also have ten years professional experience as an image-maker, stretching back to my time as a photojournalist for Jornal do Commércio, a regional newspaper in my hometown of Recife. My academic training and extensive practical experience allow me to work with understanding and sensitivity whilst representing people's habits, cultures and environments. I am attuned to capturing the details of people's everyday lives and the ways they communicate, eat, dance, work, pray, interact and shape their homes.

My approach to photography and film-making relies on building an empathetic, personal and respectful relationship with people, applying methods of anthropology, and documentary, alongside poetic imagery and engaging storytelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of tutoring and classroom assistance, and working with children, young people and adults in the UK and Brazil.

My previous experience includes:

Teaching Assistant: Video production for Anthropologists (May 2017)
Spectacle - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers and students on training Course.
- Helping students utilizing video cameras and sound equipment.
- Assisting students using video editing software.
- Assisting students doing practical video exercise in location.

Teaching Assistant: Film (Nov 2013 - Jul 2014)
Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers with classes of young people aged between 9 and 19 years old.
- Providing classroom support during film and drama lessons.
- Assisting individuals and groups with workshop and classroom activities.

Teaching one-to-one classes (Jun 2012 - Jan 2013)
- Planning, preparing and teaching one-to-one Photography and Portuguese courses for young people and adults.
- Responsible for adapting existing material or designing new material to suit individual learning needs.
- Planning and running photographic workshops and day trips for students.
- Marking and providing formative feedback on work.

Teaching and Laboratory Assistant: Photography (Sept 2010 - Sept 2011)
Universidade Católica de Pernambuco - Recife, Brazil.

- Technical, teaching and laboratory assistant for undergraduate courses in Photography and Photojournalism.
- Introducing photographic and darkroom techniques to students.
- Classroom and teaching assistance.
- Responsibility for maintenance and organization of photographic studios and darkroom.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I like to combine theory and hands on practice encouraging people to become independent learners, creative and critical thinkers. I have an empathetic, relaxed and joyful approach to tutoring and like to develop a good relationship with people to ensure that they feel comfortable to learn and to feedback on lessons. I like to work in collaboration with people to tailor lessons according to their needs, interests and levels.

With years of experience practising image making and studding the subject, I believe that theory and practice go hand in hand. With photography and film I think it's important to develop our 'ways of seeing' both by looking at things that have been made and by studding the thinking and mechanics behind these medias. It is also important to reflect on our own practice to develop our abilities and discover our potential.

A hand on experience is key when learning how to photograph and film. It is by practising that we familiarize ourselves and learn how to handle confidently our instrument of work. It's also by practising that we expose ourselves and learn how to deal with the unforeseen events that confront us when we are photographing and filming - be it the instability of light, decisions regarding compositions, interaction with a diversity of people, a great range of emotions that are presented to us while we hold the camera, etc.

I can facilitate photography and film making from camera work to editing for children, young people and adults. Please do get in touch to discuss - I'm always happy to help!
