Personal Description:
Having graduated less than 6 months ago, I was a student and school pupil very recently too, meaning I can offer a different perspective and approach to most teachers and textbooks.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since my final year of school and always with good results. Most importantly, I have always managed to build good relationships with my students and establish the relaxed and informal atmosphere so important for productive learning.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone learns differently and I will find the best way for you, focusing on understanding rather than rote learning. This is much easier and more effective in a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere, something I try to establish in every session: learning doesn't have to be a chore!

Personal Description:
Not everyone can reach their potential in a class of perhaps thirty students, especially if peer pressure, noise and poor behaviour work against their best efforts; even at university nowadays, seminar groups are often crazily over-large. I began teaching as a genuine vocation, after many successful years as a marketing manager in the pharmaceutical industry. It is this background that makes me different; it has given me an approach to teaching that has changed the outlook and results of many young students similar to your own son and daughter, inspiring them with renewed confidence and enthusiasm. The large number of genuine four and five star references on this site and elsewhere are evidence of this. As well as teach, I also write for several publishers including the BBC; also I have been the "BBC Bitesize English teacher" for some years, responding to educational queries sent in to their website.

I have taught English Language and Literature (as well as Media and Film Studies) to KS3, GCSE, A-level and under-graduate level for several years; I also tutor primary (KS2) students, helping them with their KS2 and entrance exam preparation. My speciality, apart from a natural love of English Literature. is linguistics and I suppose, through my teaching materials, I have become quite well known even nationally for my work in this area.

I taught for many years at the county's leading comprehensive school, The Beauchamp College in Oadby, where year-on-year my classes achieved amongst the highest results in the school, and therefore amongst the highest in the county of Leicestershire.

As well as a teacher of English, thanks to my business background, qualifications and interests, over the years I have been able to help many students studying Sociology, Business Studies and History, right through to undergraduate level.

As a naturally shy individual despite a confident-seeming exterior, I am especially keen on building confidence in my students, and I try hard to improve public speaking skills as these are so important not just for interviews and the like, but for a general feeling of well-being and inner-confidence. Schools seem unable to help quiet or shy students and this is an area in which I think I can say I excel.

I am nationally known and respected for my teaching materials and run a very popular English GCSE and A-level revision website. My teaching materials and guides are used throughout the country and even overseas. As the BBC's "Bitesize" English teacher, I have even been on the Greg James's Radio 1 show, answering students' revision 'Tweets' and discussing with him his favourite book, To Kill a Mockingbird!

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a full time tutor and educational writer, but for many years taught at the leading school in the area, the Beauchamp College in Oadby, Leicester; whilst there I regularly achieved among the top pass rates in the school and, therefore, in the whole county. I have written educational materials for national publishers including the BBC where for several years I was the BBC Bitesize English teacher, having appeared in that role on national radio (Radio 1); many of my own teaching materials are used by teachers across the country. I run my own English GCSE and A-level revision website.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a no-nonsense and straightforward approach to my teaching - one that provides excellent value for money and exam results. Lessons and homework are supported with the highest quality teaching and learning materials available. My personal approach is to treat youngsters as equals, something they tell me is rare in teaching and which boosts their self-confidence greatly.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced tutor, based in central Ipswich and I can tutor in students' homes or my home. I really enjoy tutoring as I find that my students make excellent progress which is very rewarding for me, too. Where required, I can provide references from previous students.

Teaching Experience:

I have 25 years' teaching experience (EFL/ESL, German and French) across all levels in colleges, local schools and as a private tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

My greatest strength is my ability to tailor my lessons to match students' exact linguistic needs - whether that means focussing on grammar, speaking ability, exam preparation or a combination of any of these for those who are learning for work and/or leisure purposes.

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:
I have always been very passionate about maths right from a very young age ergo it has been the subject I have throughout excelled in during my academic life. I have recently graduated with a 2.1 in Maths with Business at University of Surrey. Having done A-level Maths (with over 97% in all core modules) and Further Maths as well as Maths and Additional Maths at O-levels, Iam equipped with a solid foundation when it comes to tutoring Maths. Apart from academic stuff, I try to indulge in different maths activities such as UK Senior Maths challenge or Senior Maths Team challenge (on behalf of college). I have also been a Business Advisor for Young Enterprise UK's company programme.

Teaching Experience:

I haven't got an official experience as such but I have been tutoring my friends and family over years. They have always recommended me to get into teaching since they say that I have all the qualities to be a great teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is not at all fixed. Since maths has different aspects to it so I approach every student based on their weaknesses which I discuss on the first meeting. This means if someone has difficulties in remembering formulas, I work accordingly. If someone gets confused on how to approach a question, I adapt a different style. So it all depends on my tutee-which area he needs to work most on.

Before coming to Cambridge, I did my master degree about Sustainable Energy Systems in the University of Edinburgh. My undergraduate study is about Telecommunications Engineering and I receive first class degree from the University of Liverpool.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently doing demonstration and supervision about physics for year 1 and year 2 students, who are studying in the University of Cambridge.

Before each tutorial, a small exam will be given to test the student's mastering of the knowledge. Detailed feedback about the student's performance will be reported to parents in time. Close attention about my student will be given to adjust the study plans accordingly.

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired Clinical Scientists (registered). I am married with a son and I am a youthful 67 year old with an 8 years old son! We are a non smoking family. My involvement with "mathematics", at various levels, dates back to when I left secondary school (Blackpool) in 1964 and worked for the Civil Service for 5 years. I was in an accounts division and passed two additional maths (and eventually English!) O'Levels via evening classes as well as enjoying the 60s and playing bass guitar in local groups. I took a 1 year full time A''Level course (Maths, Further Maths and Physics) and subsequently read for a Mathematics degree (Physics subsid.) at the University of Nottingham (1970-73). During this time, I had 3 vacation studentships with different departments of the Scientific Civil Service. After graduating, I worked for around 15 years as a computer programmer / analyst during which time I passed an HND in Computer Studies (University of the South Bank, London). Although I was 40 years old when I was made redundant from a communications company, I decide to make a significant career change and return to my "roots" and look for scientific work where my mathematical skills would be better used. After 2 years as a Medical Laboratory Scientific Officer in the lung function laboratory at the Royal Brompton, I had the tools and experience to apply for a research post in Paediatric Respiratory Medicine at the Royal Post Graduate Medical School (RPGMS, Hammersmith Hospital).

I retired in 2014 after 25 years as a researcher / Clinical Scientist at the RPGMS and Royal London. A large part of my research involved mathematical analysis of breathing patterns and flow-volume curves. This involved developing techniques and algorithms for alternative methods of assessing "lung function". I published many papers in international medical journals and all included a significant maths / stats content. During this time, I took evening classes obtaining additional A' Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Statistics and then read for an M Sc in General Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Kings College London. In 2005, my portfolio was reviewed by the Health Professions Council and I registered as Clinical Scientist, which is a protected title, The main reason for the additional qualifications was my passion for learning and the thrill of sitting examinations and testing myself. The addition A'Levels and M. Sc. were taken for the challenge and pleasure and were not directly relevant to my career. One important reason for offering private tuition is my love of teaching / learning and I miss my close involvement with the "sciences". I have been accepted as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) ambassador and I have an enhanced DBS check certificate.

Teaching Experience:

Although, I do not have formal teaching qualification and I only started offering private tuition at the beginning of 2015, I am a patient person who has tutored a range of tutees from Common Entrance Exam level to adult learner including CGSE students for both Mathematics and Statistics.

However, my "teaching" roles / experiences go back to the mid 60s helping friends struggling with the Civil Service maths entrance exams and later, post graduation, I taught maths, unpaid, to several children of friends as well as adult friends and colleagues who needed to obtain better qualification. My research positions included (i) formal teaching / lecturing roles at all levels e.g. work experience students, medical / nursing students, visiting medics, junior members of the lab staff as well as registrars and consultants; (ii) presenting the research at local, national and international meetings and (iii) giving guest lectures on B. Sc. and M Sc. courses.

In my research / technical support work, I found particular pleasure explaining to children and parents the purpose and science that underpinned the tests and the analysis and interpretation of the results. This was a unique experience for almost all of them. It gave them and me a lot of pleasure and improved the success problems. In my own time, I helped patients, some who missed a lot of school time due to their problems, with both school work in the sciences and others with projects related to the maths and biology of their respiratory problems. Invariably, they ended up knowing more than their teachers!

Tutoring Approach:

As George Orwell never said "All tutees are not the same but some are more different than others".

I have a variety of approaches, depending on factors such as (i) whether the tutee needs teaching or revision; (ii) the number of lessons the tutee can fit in before the exam; (iii) their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their interests; (iv) whether the tutee is struggling to keep up or a flyer needing to ensure an A* (v) the length of the sessions 45-90 mins and whether it is one or two session a week and (vi) the work they are able to do between sessions.

However, there are aspects that are common to all tutees: before starting the lessons, I am happy to meet for a chat (no charge) to spend as long as necessary clarifying important issue such as (i) which board, level and paper they will be sitting; (ii) the text book they use and which parts of the syllabus have been covered and whether any need revising or explaining and (iii) wherever possible, obtaining suggestions and feedback from their teachers including where marks had been lost in recent exams.

Other aspects of my approach include (i) the tutee attempting appropriate questions / papers from other boards to encourage and foster "thinking outside the box" and, thus, to be prepared for questions that do not fit the usual mode; (ii) e-mailing questions of papers in advance of session to allow adequate time for preparation; (iii) feeding back how sessions have gone and suggestions for changes and being available between session via e-mail; (iv) moving up and down the difficulty ladder depending on the progress; (v) working on exam technique and teaching how to not misinterpret questions, sometimes, badly written; (vi) preparing tutees for difficult topics about to be taught at school, to ensure they get the most out of upcoming lessons; (vii) using examples from everyday life to demonstrate the use and usefulness of maths and statistics outside of the classroom and (viii) building up confidence and aiming to engender a passion and love of the subject and learning, in general.

I make extensive use of marking schemes and examiners reports to discuss how the tutee may have obtained the correct answer but lost marks due to not showing their working or lost time providing irrelevant details and this has been very successful and interesting for the tutees.

Some of my feedback:
(i) As a Year 11 student, Peter has been providing me with extra mathematics tuition during the final months before my GCSE examinations, offering distinct, concise teaching within a relaxed but highly enjoyable and yet professional environment. As a mathematician, Peter has aided me in approaching mathematics from a somewhat more lateral perspective, exploring multiple methods that could be employed to solve a challenging question; a form of thinking that is seldom used within a typical school environment. Peter's abundant, infectious passion for both his tuition and mathematics manifests itself within his unswerving support and guidance during our sessions together, delivering a uniquely engaging teaching environment within which to learn, but most importantly, to enjoy learning mathematics!"

(ii) Parent of a Year 11 school girl: Hello Peter, thank you for your follow up, your emails always have an interesting flair about them. We also enjoyed our meeting and Ebony particularly liked your relaxed approach to the subject, for that reason alone I think she would benefit from being able to ask questions without feeling awkward about what she doesn't understand, most importantly I agree with your 'spades a spade' philosophy in how to interpret the syllabus into the real world.

(iii) Teacher's reply to an e-mail from the mother of a Common Entrance school boy: Thank you for your email. I am pleased Edward has a good tutor and is happy doing extra Maths. The best paper to prepare Edward for our end of year test would be a practice SATs test as they follow a similar format to ours.

(iv) A recent GCSE student, EDEXCEL Higher, via his mother: Peter, I obtained and A in my Stats paper and B in my maths paper and I was told by my teacher that it might be worth remarking, as I was only several marks away from the A Grade)

Consulting the 'breakdown' of my overall Mathematics grade, it appears as though I (thanks to your support) did exceptionally well within the non-calculator paper (the equivalent of a very high A/ very low A* in terms of marks), but it was simply a few questions at the end of the calculator paper (that seemed to baffle everyone, regardless of ability) that partially pushed my overall grade down.

Once again, thank you for all of your support and guidance; I certainly would not have been able to achieve my result within the NON-calculator paper, the paper that I claimed was more intimidating, without our sessions within the Library. You have improved not only my proficiency, but also my confidence in Maths enormously and for that I cannot thank you enough.

(v) Father of a schoolgirl (EDEXCEL Higher): "E" did very well overall and passed all 13 ! In Maths she was one point off a B so of course that's a C. I think we will request a remark for the maths paper. Many thanks again for your help in the past, best wishes.

Personal Description:
I hold an MSc in Innovation and Technology Management degree with scholarship from the University of Bath which is ranked in the top 3 institutions in the UK. Before that I studied BSc(Hons) International Business at the University of Sussex.

I am a very sociable and relaxed person. I enjoy outdoors, music, and cooking.

I have my own private limited company selling organic cosmetics and offering business consultancy services.

Teaching Experience:

BUSINESS

I have experience in teaching Business Studies, and subjects related to it to people with many different backgrounds, age groups and professions. I also have specialist knowledge in Innovation and Lean Six Sigma.

I have worked as an operational excellence facilitator in the past so I know how theoretical knowledge applies in real life situations.

Business studies is really fun and you will get to see it with me.

LANGUAGES

I have experience in teaching English as a second language to people with many different backgrounds, age groups and professions.

I have experience teaching any level, we can start from the most basic elementary things to the most advanced levels.

As a native Turkish speaker I have experience teaching Turkish as a second language to people with many different backgrounds, age groups and professions.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very easy going, patient, and I can understand the different needs of every individual and find ways to accommodate them.

I like an interactive approach.
I like to make sure not to move onto next stages without making sure everything is well understood and learnt.

Most important thing for me is to to make sure the logic behind everything is understood, and I keep explaining until it makes sense to the person. I see this is the only way to learn anything.

Personal Description:
I am 30 years old and recently moved to Leicester city, UK.
I am reliable and kind with great sence of organization and attention to detail.
Diligence and consistency was always important to me so I require the same from others.
I have a Proficiency certification on English language from Michigan University and a diploma on Applied Foreign Languages on Commerce and Administration from Epirus Technological and Educational Institute.
Moreover I have been taught commercial and administrative terms on English language, plus specific grammar and vocabulary issues on Greek language on Epirus Technological and Educational Institute.
To sum up, I have a good level on teaching fields I chose on the previous part, certified by Univeristy studies.
Finally I would like to mention that Greek is my mother tongue and have studied it for about 13 years and speak since I was born.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience on English language is one year private lessons (2014) on A2 level student.
About Greek language I have not any professional experience but as it is my mother tongue I am able to teach it through my studies and personal experience.
About History and IT teaching I have the appropriate knowledge through my certified studies and personal awarness.

Tutoring Approach:

My way of approaching to Tutoring is first of all the continuous information and reffered teaching stuff.
I believe that studying is not just an obligation for the student. Tutor has to be prepared and informed even for the most less significant detail.

About the student, I strongly believe that patience and reward can create miracles!
Even if the student is difficult, the Tutor has to find the appropriate way to approach him/her and give the right reason for interest.
