Personal Description:
I have taught mathematics for over 20 years now and enjoy keeping up to date with lesson delivery, whilst maintaining a keen interest in how we learn about numbers and maths generally. Towards the end of my career I became interested in our parents and how many struggle with the often complicated explanations offered in some texts or online explanations. I am now semi retired and enjoy offering some simple private tuition in addition to continuing to work part time in schools. I am a friendly, down to earth tutor a good sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching in schools for over 20 years with experience in primary numeracy, GCSE's, A levels. I translate complex concepts into ordinary language and everyday life

I also now teach privately for the rest of the week from my home (please view the map for location)
I have enjoyed teaching some very gifted students as well as those who find the subject quite a challenge, as indeed we all do from time to time

Tutoring Approach:

I now mainly prefer to teach adults up to GCSE but as long as you can make daytime sessions I can help. I use an intuitive approach wherever possible. It has been noted that I explain concepts quite clearly and students can be surprised at the ease with which they pick up previously difficult concepts.

I also prepare students for exams and offer guidance on exam technique.

I usually work with whatever you bring to the session, unless a specific topic needs covering in more depth

Personal Description:
I am a highly experienced Maths tutor, geared toward ensuring you get the best exam grades possible in your field. I will increase your understanding of maths, and my explanations are simple and straightforward. Alongside tutoring, I will guide you through exam techniques, and common pitfalls.

Teaching Experience:

6 years private tutor. 4 years private tutor in Maths 1, Maths 2, and Mechanics of Materials of University's courses.
2 years experiences in GCSE and A Level Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching strategy usually involves engaging the student in critical thinking early on, as I believe this is the key to understanding, and I will never "tell" a student what he should do, or why this is like that, but to direct his thinking so that he/she understands why this is the way it is, and why should he/she act that way. I do not believe in memorisation being the main way of teaching in some countries, as this usually does not prepare people for university and life in general, specially in science and maths. Of course, there's always a degree of memorisation in every subject, but I try to keep it to a minimum. This also depends on every student, and I ultimately asses my strategy individually for each student.

Personal Description:
I work in London as a research manager and teaching Mandarin is my personal interest. I enjoy helping my students achieve their goals and seeing them enjoy learning a new language. As an old Chinese saying goes "teaching and learning are reciprocal and should develop at the same time", I always teach with great passion. I live in St Albans and would prefer to teach in nearby areas.

Teaching Experience:

Over 8 years of part-time teaching experience, from teaching primary and secondary school students to adult learning groups. Having experience of working with young children of different cultural backgrounds and designing lessons to suit individual needs.

Mandarin teacher at Cranfield University community center (15 students) 2009

Individual tutoring 2008-2015

Tutored two GCSE students who got A* and a student passed HSK1 and HSK 2 at the age of 10 and 12 respectively.

Tutoring Approach:

It's important to keep students interested but I have to say I am a strict tutor as I believe language learning requires a certain level of commitment. Chinese is not an easy language to pick up and I'd like to see my students try their best once they decide to begin this process. Of course I will try my best to help!

Personal Description:
I am a 31-year old female languages graduate with a BA(Hons) 2:1 in Modern European Languages from Durham University and a Trinity CertTESOL certificate.. I am approachable and friendly. I believe everyone has the capacity to learn a language and my job as a tutor is to help unlock that potential so you enjoy the learning experience.

Teaching Experience:

I've previously tutored French up to GCSE level and Spanish and Italian up to A-Level standard. I am a TESOL qualified English teacher with experience working abroad and have also tutored primary school children in languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor my approach to the student, depending on their age, level and what they hope to get out of the sessions, as well as their preferred learning style.For younger children I would tend to include more activities, whereas for students studying for exams I would focus more on helping with coursework, revising topics covered in class, and exercises.

Personal Description:
Former business journalist, Sky News editor, international conference producer in Moscow, Russian-English interpreter and now teacher & private tutor. Russian and French degree from UCL with teacher training (Kingston University) experience in French, Spanish and Latin (ages 11-18)). I also specialise in numeracy and literacy, helping young children and adults gain an A-C grade in their GCSEs.
I love working with children (I have students as young as 7) and adults alike and have plenty of materials, worksheets and textbooks for languages as well as mathematics and English as a Foreign Language/TOEIC/Citizenship tests
(PS: I have a great talent for working with children or adults who find it difficult to concentrate and showing them how to not only learn but also REMEMBER :D)

Teaching Experience:

Many years as an English teacher to foreign children, students and Russian businessmen and two years in a secondary school teaching modern languages to children aged 11-18. I have a great record of working with children who have ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspberger's and other learning "difficulties" (I like to call them learning differences:-)) Due to my ability to get "difficult" children to enjoy their lessons by learning their way, I was asked by my school to work with Year 11 children in the school"s EBD unit one-on-one in order to ensure they get an A-C grade in their GCSE English and maths exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Although very serious and focused on results, I do understand that everyone has their own approach to learning and my best skill is in introducing a range of learning techniques and study skills (some of them are even fun ;-)) to the student that they can use across all subjects! I have a special talent for working with a different range of students, especially those who are very bright/intelligent but who have difficulty retaining/remembering information

Personal Description:
I am a mature Scottish Chartered Teacher who qualified initially in 1994. I received the Chartered Teacher from the general teaching council for Scotland in 2010. I have experience of tutoring students from 2006 and I am very enthusiastic in my work. I do not watch the clock and will prepare lessons to meet the needs of the student. I gained a M.A.Ed.(Special Needs) in 2005 and have found it invaluable in identifying and overcoming barriers to learning.Presently I have a wide range of students including those with Dyslexia and Aspergers. I also tutor for a family who home xchool their childrens.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutor children and young adults from upper primary to the senior stage in Secondary. I have no preference for the stage, it is the teaching experience I enjoy.

Tutoring Approach:

I adopt a very pupil centred approach to teaching. All children are different and it is your child's needs I must meet. Some students like to work on homework others on specific parts of the course. There is no general case to consider. I will use an approach to teaching which suits the student.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of Balliol College Oxford and have been teaching in London ever since leaving many years ago now. I live in West London with my family (although I am originally from Yorkshire) and like it here. We are all keen musicians too.

Teaching Experience:

As Head of Physics Department and then Director of Studies for two major Independent Sixth Form Colleges I have 35 years experience teaching A level Physics for many exam boards as well as examining. I wrote an A level revision guide for Penguin books called 'Masterstudies - Physics'.
I have taught mostly in small group situations but each year also teach a few individual students.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy communicating the underlying concepts in Physics and interactively building up a full picture of how the subject works for a student. I don't rely on a mathematical approach to the subject but encourage students to develop an all-round ability based on reasoned thinking as well as maths. Several students I have taught over the years have achieved 100% in A level Physics

Personal Description:
I am Philosophy Graduate with a passion for ideas and critical thinking. I have written articles for a variety of blogs and delivered lectures to an academic audience.

In the past I have also worked in as a freelance musician and an IT technician.

Everything I do is influenced by my passion for ideas and my desire to convey them to others, a conscientious work ethic and lively sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first foray into academic tutoring, I have previously taught Judo at senior and junior levels. In addition, I have been responsible for helping people improve their IT skills when I worked for The Department For Work and Pensions.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to meet every individual where they are in their journey of learning, rather than impose preconceived ideas on them. I try and find out how each student learns and in light of this tailor my teaching to fit them.

I always try to keep things fun and interesting as people achieve more when they are engaged an excited. I avoid pointless jargon and needless technicality.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Chantelle and I am a fully qualified teacher of English as a Foreign Language. I teach General English and Business English at all levels. I am also a Law graduate (2:1 LLB Hons University of Liverpool) with a strong academic record. I am 32 and am engaged to my lovely fiancι. In my free time I love to cook, read, watch motorsport and walk my dog. I also love to travel and have travelled extensively around Europe, the USA and north Africa. I am interested in history and love to learn about different cultures.

Teaching Experience:

Although I am new to teaching English as a Foreign Language I have teaching experience gained from teaching World War 1 history to primary school children and Law as a private tutor to university undergraduates. I have also provided English language support to a number of European companies. For the past nine years I worked in a university as a note taker for disabled students, presenting lecture materials in ways tailored to their individual needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that English language learning should be practical and interactive. I understand that everyone has their own individual learning style and learning needs. Your classes with me will focus on this to ensure your learning needs are met. I always conduct both a needs analysis and assessment of your language skills to understand what you need from your English classes. I use a variety of materials and exercises in my classes to provide real life examples of English and also keep classes interesting.

Personal Description:
I am a 3rd year medical student with a previous degree in Biomedical sciences. I studied Maths, Biology and Chemistry at A2 levels and Economics at AS-level attaining 3A's and a B respectively.

Teaching Experience:

I currently mentor maths to Year 10 students once a week through my university. Not to worry, I still have a lot of time for personally tutoring.
I also tutored people for exam preparation in A-level Biology

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to get you confident in the subject of choice and able to attain the best possible grade you can achieve. I am very patient and enthusiastic about teaching, and love seeing students excel.

I like to push students past their current limits and get them to challenge themselves while being encouraging. The more confident the student gets, the more interested in that subject they become. I am always happy to lend a helping hand.

Personal Description:
I have been playing guitar from the age of 14, firstly teaching myself and then learning from teachers such as Gypie Mayo (Dr Feelgood). I formed my first band at 15 and have been teaching, playing and song-writing in bands ever since, playing in venues such as Ronnie Scott's, Dingwalls, The Marquee, Chinnery's, 100 club, playing alongside artists such as Finley Quaye, Boy George and the Brand New Heavies. My band Sentivo was on Long Lost Brother Records (Jamiroquai, SIA) making recordings for producers such as Mickey Most, Joey Negro and Mark Knight. I studied Music/Guitar Theory at a college in London where I gained my Music Diploma. I am now currently teaching guitar part time at a college in Southend and teaching private and one to one guitar lessons whilst playing, singing and writing music & lyrics for my new band

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and qualified Guitar tutor having achieved a Diploma in Music/Music Technology and have also completed a level 4 PTLLS teaching qualification. I am currently working at a college as a Guitar Tutor which I thoroughly enjoy and has given me great teaching experience and teacher training especially in teaching in groups and also one to one. In the last 17 years I have been tutoring and teaching privately which has given me great confidence and experience in teaching on a one to one basis. I also hold a current DBS certificate. I teach a number of different styles ranging from blues, rock'n'roll to rock, funk, jazz and soul Please give me a call or email to book a lesson whether you are an absolute beginner or want to improve or build on the level you already are.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to keep teaching relaxed and fun and like to get the student up and playing straight away, especially if you're a beginner as it's important to come away with something gained to boost the confidence and enthusiasm so you feel like you have achieved something solid and want to carry on playing. If you're already playing then I like to build on your skills and strengths and also focus on any weak areas to make you the best player you can possibly be. It is your lesson so you choose what you want to learn whether it is chords/progressions, melodies, scales/modes or songs or maybe tools to improve your own compositions and song writing. I can teach from my home and have a dedicated music room which is specially set up in a relaxed and musical environment to inspire the creative musician.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Bridie and I would love to be your tutor. I am outgoing, approachable, friendly, flexible, and punctual and have a good sense of humour. I can offer fun and enthusiastic sessions that are tailored to suit your learning needs. I have a first class honours masters degree in chemistry and I am very passionate about science. I can help you to feel comfortable with difficult topics and build up your confidence to answer those longer questions you would often panic about. I want to remove this panic from you onto me and help you with your study skills and most importantly, improve your grade. So please pick me and we can work together for you to achieve your goals.

Teaching Experience:

I am an outstanding practitioner and I have been teaching for 4 years. During this time I have taught A-level chemistry, GCSE science and BTEC applied science level 3. I have taught in secondary schools and colleges where I have run extra sessions during breaks, afterschool and during the holidays. This involves group sessions to tackle difficult topic concepts and 1-to-1 appointments to develop exam technique, giving a clearer picture of individual needs. This has really helped to achieve results. Alongside teaching, I have been a science technician which has enabled me to possess a wider knowledge of the practical activities. A strong practical knowledge is crucial for the new A-level specifications.

Tutoring Approach:

As your tutor I will ensure:
• A calm and supportive environment in which to learn.
• You will feel comfortable with learning
• I am approachable so no need to feel nervous.
• You are not confronted but instead helped to understand the topic.
• High level of respect.
• Strong subject knowledge.
• I give constructive feedback.
• Assess the starting point of your learning using a red, amber, green system of a topic checklist.
• A cooperative approach to learning-we will work together to solve a problem.
• Marking of questions answered with a grade so that you have instant feedback, which is then compared to your target grade.
• I give praise and non-forceful encouragement to build your confidence.
• It is ok to make mistakes, you only learn from them and feel comfortable to question a topic idea.
• You will develop to be in control of your own learning.

I have access to many resources such as full notes, revision notes, revision checklists, video tutorials, good website links, topic-based questions, exam papers with mark schemes and examiners reports, stretch and challenge questions, quizzes and multiple-choice questions. All resources will be suited to your individual needs.

Thank you for reading my information and I hope you will consider me to be your tutor.
