Personal Description:
I am a professional educator with a wealth of experience in a wide variety of teaching environments. I've taught in schools (Primary and Secondary) around Hampshire covering almost all the curriculum, been a private tutor for a wealthy family in the Middle East, and helped local students improve their GCSE and A-Level grades.

I trained in Physics and have a Masters degree in Physics with Space Science and Technology from the university of Leicester. I now teach Physics and Mathematics at a variety of levels in Gosport and offer local tuition.

Presently, my circumstances make it difficult to offer tuition, and can only accommodate students coming to my home in Gosport.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2009 and took up a post in a 11-18 state comprehensive. Here I taught Science at Key Stage 3 and specialised in Physics at Key Stages 4 and 5. After I moved to the south coast I spent 6 months supplying at various schools in Hampshire. This opened my eyes to the full range of skills a good educator should have. I honestly feel my teaching skills were vastly enriched by teaching in a variety of environments in many different subjects.
From March 2011 I was hired by a prestigious tutoring agency based in Oxford to work for a wealthy client and their two sons in the Middle East. This consisted of after-school tutoring 5 evenings a week in a variety of subjects.
Now back in the UK I teach in an Engineering Academy run to train Network Rail Apprentices. I tutor in the evenings from 11+ entrance exam students to those sitting their A2 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I truly believe that every child is born a genius, with the ability to grasp everything that is put in front of them. From that point on, society, parents, and peers all put barriers in our minds. It is my goal to see that these barriers are destroyed. Learning is done by the student rather than teaching done by the teacher. A teacher can teach a dog to whistle, it doesn't meant the dog will learn.

A tutor is merely a resource. Just like a book, or an expensive laptop. Achieving the optimal results requires a holistic approach to education. I tend to work heavily with educational psychology theory and pinpoint the exact pieces of the puzzle far beneath the surface that allow the bigger picture to be seen. I teach my tutees to look at examinations in a way they may have never seen them before, allowing them to reduce the anxiety and be truly confident in themselves.

The content of subject matter often comes second to learning technique. How people learn differs between individuals. There can never be one set way to solve a problem so I offer various routes and pin point techniques that can be beneficial.

Personal Description:
I'm a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

I started as a trainee accountant in 1999, working for a variety of businesses and gradually gaining experience and expertise, becoming a member of the ACCA in 2008. In the last few years I have worked as an for the BBC, Lloyds TSB, Bread Youth Project, the Furniture Re-Use Network, Windmill Hill City Farm and Aster Group. Since 2010 I have also been doing freelance work for clients in commerce and the not-for-profit sector.

I have recently started teaching bookkeeping to clients whose duties include recording finance transactions but who do not have formal training in that kind of work.

Teaching Experience:

on and off since October 2010

Tutoring Approach:

Double-entry bookkeeping is a beautiful and robust way of recording financial transactions, but all-too-often it is shrouded in mystery and bristling with incomprehensible jargon. So instead of using double-entry bookkeeping, many people use columns of numbers, either on spreadsheets or in big red books, and risk making mistakes, leaving things out, and losing track of what has been paid for and what is still outstanding.

I can teach you double-entry bookkeeping if you are methodical and willing to learn -- you do not have to be a whizz at finance and you do not have to be fantastically numerate. We will proceed at your pace. Initial sessions will cover the very basics, and we will not need a computer for this, but as you progress you will reach a point at which it would be beneficial to apply your learning directly to the computerised bookkeeping system you are using or going to use in your business; if you do not have real transactions to record ("post"), we can invent some and post them using a practice set of accounts.

Learning happens best in a comfortable and un-hurried environment in which the focus is on acquiring skills and knowledge, and not on getting the accounts sorted out.

If you are interested in learning how to record finance transactions properly, please send me a message telling me a little about yourself, and what you need, and what you know about bookkeeping already (and it's perfectly OK if you don't know anything).

Hi there,

Whether you just need just some extra help for exams or need that A in GCSE's or A-Level I'd love to help you.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching for 5 years in West London. 6 months in Midde East teaching. Experience teaching across KS3, KS4 and KS5.

Tutoring Approach:

From teaching experience I know what the main misconceptions are and use this to base my teaching on. So before we begin a topic I try to tease out any difficulties a student may have and go forward. For me building confidence in maths is one of the main building blocks to helping a student improve substantially.

Personal Description:
I have spent many years accumulating a wide range of academic qualifications, and my work has often primarily consisted of passing on my knowledge to others in a form they can understand. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people to understand something they thought was beyond them. By virtue of having studied several subjects at a high level, I empathise with the feeling of finding something difficult, and have the patience and technique to get past this. I am not a single-subject specialist who might find it difficult to understand why others struggle in their area of expertise.
For students who are preparing for exams, my knowledge of examination technique, and an empathy with the marker, should be invaluable. I always keep in mind the importance of the student's goals, but never take myself too seriously.

Teaching Experience:

My whole career has been geared towards some form of teaching. I have trained groups of adults and children, as well as individuals, in elements of mathematics, psychology, actuarial science, pensions, and even tennis! Recently I tutored my 14 year-old son (who attends a sports academy, not a mainstream school) in three IGCSEs, for which he obtained excellent grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I look at what is important for the student. I emphasise clear, logical ways of working, and clear presentation. I make sure that they realise that they not only need to understand why they are doing something, but they must also be able to explain it clearly. Explaining a difficult concept to someone else can often be the best way to make yourself remember it. I am calm and patient, and English is my first language, all of which can help when a student finds something tricky.

I am consistently available for tutoring during weekday daytimes. I will sometimes be available in the evenings and at weekends, but this will be by arrangement and should not be relied upon.

Personal Description:
I am currently in my final year of a four year BA (Hons) Primary education with QTS course.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my degree, I have taught in Year 2, Year 3 and Year 5.

Personal Description:
Hiya!

I'm a Law student who has been tutoring for more than a handful of years!
With vast knowledge in the subjects that I specialise in, I only think its best to give back to others.
I have achieved well in GCSE and A Level English, Maths and Politics; hence the chosen field.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a support officer in my local primary school, as well as my secondary school helping children in various subjects such as Maths and English.
I have been a personal tutor as well as doing private tutoring from 2009 onwards 2015

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to help my students have understanding and confidence, when answering exam questions as well as being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. I cover the topics required, and work particular on the weaknesses that my students identify. Regular practice in the subject also helps me identify where the student needs more help. My approach varies on the student's needs as well as their learning style. Overall, I want my students to perform very well, and its amazing to watch them flower!
Recently a student of mine went into his exam with extreme confidence, and texted me 'I have learnt so much since you have started tutoring me, I feel very confident in the exam I just sat. Thank you once again'.

I have had experience tutoring GCSE maths and A Level Maths and Further for the last summer in London. I also tutored KS3 students whilst in my sixth form.
I will be most keen to apply as a tutor the learning and teaching techniques that I have found to be effective whilst as a student.

Online Experience:
-Tutored a International Chinese Student applying for maths at Oxford during summer of 2015 via "Teamviewer"(student received offer to read maths at University of Oxford)
-I have had much experience learning online as a student- mostly when I was applying to university myself. I often watched videos such as Khan Academy so I know what a great online learning experience feels like. Even now while at university I regularly use things like MIT opencourseware for video lectures and the slightly more interactive format too to supplement my live classes, tutorials and lectures.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly and very encouraging. I have had experience giving remedial lessons to younger students falling a little behind at school and also to stronger students so can adapt approach well. One challenge is students who doubt their abilities or are afraid to get a question wrong. I constantly encourage that mistakes are okay, and they shouldn`t be afraid to tackle a difficult problem. I often find that it takes a lot of experimenting with stupid, less fruitful ideas in order to reach a brilliant one. Prompt when stuck and hold belief that it is the journey to solving the problem that is most important than the final answer and most fun of course :) Despite being guilty of not doing this many times in my young mathematical career- It is important to realise that Mathematics is not a spectator sport- much of learning comes from actively solving many problems and having bravery to explore the subject alone sometimes.

Personal Description:
PASSIONATE GEOSCIENTIST AND TUTOR IN LONDON AND SURREY

I am a knowledgeable Geoscientist and Engineer with 9 years experience in oil industry. I have a strong understanding of Math, Physics, Chemistry and Geology and good essay writing skills. I also have a B.Sc. in engineering and two M.Sc in engineering and geosceince.

As a Project Geoscientist, I have been responsible for managing, mentoring and training junior colleagues in the team, where I have demonstrated high level of communication, interpersonal and interpretive skills. I have the experience of helping GCSE/A level, undergraduate and postgraduate (up to master level) students.

Send me a message to chat and discuss Maths and Science lessons together.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience in tutoring students in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Geology up to degree level in the evenings and weekends in last 2 years.

Tutoring Approach:

Cameron raised his math grade from C to A; you can too, ask me how!

I believe the most efficient approach is the most engaging one. Tutoring should be about helping students to get the best out of their education through discovering their potential and developing interest in the subject.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher of science and chemistry. I have been a teacher since 2003 and I have taught all the exam syllabus, even with the most recent changes. I have tutored successfully for the past three year and I have been an exam marker for the past 5 year and still do mark now. I have a good idea of exactly what is required for the exam boards and I cater for all styles of learning.

I provide all resources and travel costs are included in my hourly fee. The reason for the increased charge for a level is the extra time it takes to prepare and also more printing and resources are usually required.

I have a Dbs from Nov 2015 and can provide tutoring references on request.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching 2003 to present
Tutoring from 2010 to present
exam marking 2008 to present
University tutor 2015 to present

Tutoring Approach:

varied depending on the needs of the tutee. I find that learning and practicing in the session works well. I will then leave similar questions for the tutee to complete before the next session. this helps me see if the student is making progress in the sessions and they can see the progress themselves. Other styles that work are going through exam questions, identifying key points and using revision techniques that can be taught in the sessions.

I do believe that tutoring is not a substitute for revision but in addition and it is important that tutees are committed to revision if they wish tutoring to be sucessful.

I would like to point out that I cannot garentee any grade but will always go above and beyond to help students achieve their best.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and practising English language and literature teacher at secondary school level (KS3 to GCSE).English teaching is not just a profession to me but a life long passion to inspire and develop students in my chosen subject.This makes me patient, flexible, creative and enthusiastic. Initially,I will assess a student to target areas for development unless a learner has specific needs which he/she intends to focus on.Since every student is an individual, who learns at their own pace and style, I will adapt my tutoring techniques to suit those personal requirements.
I am willing to hold sessions in the comfort of your home or alternatively arrange a convenient meeting place of your choice, e.g library.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating from the University of Leeds with an English language and literature degree in 2001, I worked as a Core subject Mentor (English specialist) at secondary school where I conducted booster classes with small groups and individuals (0f different abilities) in order to raise attainment. After completing my teacher training,I taught English from key stage 3 to GCSE level (11 -16)in various secondary schools across West Yorkshire.
I have extensive experience of teaching to the new GCSE requirements of major exam boards such as WJEC and AQA. Along with this, I am familiar (and resourced) with most set texts used in schools. I am currently teaching English at a Secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially,I will assess a student to target areas for development unless a learner has specific needs which he/she intends to focus on.Since every student is an individual, who learns at their own pace and style, I will adapt my tutoring techniques to suit those personal requirements. I aim to make learning fun and enjoyable. I believe a student has fully engage with their subject in order to make outstanding progress.

Personal Description:
I have always had a strong interest in education, and I love the English language. I am instinctively able to relate to people from all backgrounds, age groups, gender and ability and, although I came late to teaching, I have found myself to have a natural ability.

I am patient, engaging and work very effectively on a 1:1 basis.

Teaching Experience:

On my PGCE placement I taught a number of community courses, including ESOL and Literacy. I also taught Level 3 Youth Work at the Cardigan Centre, during which time I worked 1:1 with one of the learners, resulting in him completing the course and achieving the qualification.

During all my placement courses, I taught 1:1 with a variety of different learners - particularly in ESOL and Literacy.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a very thorough approach, and am always mindful that the student is at the very centre of the learning. I recognise the importance of identifying any barriers to learning, and work with the student to overcome these so that they are able to achieve their learning goals. I am a friendly and approachable teacher, and understand that establishing a good working relationship with the student is crucial for successful learning.
