Personal Description:
I live in Cheshire and have two children. I enjoy camping, the outdoors & the countryside in general. We like to travel around the UK, especially Scotland & Southern Ireland. I have enjoyed being successful professionally & in my academic career & I am always looking for new opportunities to make the best use of the skills I've developed over the years. I enjoy working out and train most days. I have an interest in numismatics (coins and paper money).

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Further & Higher education for the past 22 years & I am Head of Subject & Senior Lecturer at a College with Beacon status in the North West. My results are 10% above national benchmark & I am an examiner with a leading examination board. Last year, I carried out some regular private tuition & was able to turn E grades into A grades at A2 level. This was very satisfying for me & the student concerned was able to go on & take a degree in Law, something he wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. I have been specialising in online teaching since 2009 and have been supporting A level, Undergraduate and Ph.D students in order to maximise their academic potential and their summative grades. Don't wait until September to contact me, get ahead now.............Julian

Tutoring Approach:

I like to treat every student as an individual & seek to respond to their individual learning needs. I offer a very reliable, high standard of service & see us as working together to achieve a common objective, that of success in the summative examinations. Being an examiner for sociology is also a real advantage for my tutees too. More recently, I have been working with Nelson Thornes and AQA to provide 50 online Sociology learning resources for publication in support of their new A2 student book. I now also offer online tuition via Skype voice and video call at a discounted hourly rate for block bookings, hence the £25 rate.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in English Literature from the University of East Anglia where I also studied Creative Writing.

I am a freelance writer (mostly book reviews and articles on literature for the Guardian) and in 2013 I had my first book published by Transworld: Dedicated to... (a collection of found book-inscriptions which received some very nice national press).

I am currently writing my debut novel.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in 2014. Subjects taught so far have included Shakespeare (Macbeth) and Browning's Porphyria's Lover. (References available on demand). I have a good knowledge of literature and am able to research topics thoroughly and quickly.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe literature is best taught with enthusiasm, thereby making it accessable and less intimidating. Once a basic understanding of the work has been achieved it is easier to explore the more complex themes such as character, imagery, dramatic arc, etc.

Personal Description:
I am enthusiastic about helping other people with academic subjects, and enjoy teaching and explaining various topics in science and maths. I have a personal love for these subjects and I am always interested to learn more.

Teaching Experience:

I have been invited by Mosslands School to join their mentoring programme aimed at year 11 students to help them with maths and achieve the highest grade they can.

Tutoring Approach:

When I am tutoring I aim to find what the pupil is struggling with or needs more practice and help with those areas, filling in the basics if this is what is required. I do this by asking the pupil questions or by going through questions in an exam paper or revision guide.

Personal Description:
I am a fairly recent (but mature) graduate who is hugely enthusiastic about learning. For fun I like to dress up as a Tudor and take part in Living History events. I also very much like to take my slightly dopey dog to the beach where I regularly need to prevent her swimming to France!

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of teaching was through home-educating my daughter from when she was 6 through to GSCE-level. I then went on to do a PGCE in Lifelong Learning (post-16 education) during which time I taught a range of business and tourism modules. Since completing my PGCE I have completed short-term contracts teaching English as a Foreign Language. Presently, I work part-time as an enabler for physically and/ or mentally disabled students in higher education and part-time as a private tutor.I have experience tutoring adult learners, home-educated students (i.e. delivery of full syllabus) and students who are at school but need additional subject help, for example with exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand how important it is to have a supportive and patient teacher who is willing to answer any question any number of times until the student 'gets it' and that's what I am always prepared to do. I think learning should be fun and relevant to our lives and endeavour to carry this over into lessons. The exact approach would always depend on the needs and wishes of the student.

Personal Description:
Post doctoral researcher at University of Sheffield, working to improve mathematical computer models which predict onset of heart disease.

I recently completed a PhD in Bioengineering at Imperial College London, carrying out mathematical research on heart disease. My first degree was in Maths at the same university, and I took a Masters in Biomedical Research in between.

I attended both a state school and a top boarding school and am comfortable to cover topics on and off the standard syllabus.

I am a very fun, friendly person with a wide range of activities and hobbies from inline skating to singing and playing the violin.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored A-level maths privately for a few years, and also spent several weeks as a teaching assistant in a secondary school during my undergraduate degree as part of the Student Associates Scheme. Many of my contemporaries from university are science and mathematics teachers across England and overseas, and I periodically discuss teaching methods and curriculum changes with them.

During my PhD, I led undergraduate tutorials and problems classes in the Mathematics and several Engineering departments, teaching undergraduates from 1st year to 4th year. The courses include Mathematical Methods, Matlab, Fluid Mechanics, PDEs, Modelling in Biology, Heat and Mass Transfer. I also carried out 1-1 tuition for undergraduates at departmental request. I have supervised a number of undergraduate and masters research projects and summer students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very approachable person and I prefer interactive sessions, although I can tailor the tuition style to the individual.

A first meeting would involve an informal chat for the student and I to get more familiar with his/her needs and style of working, and everything follows from there.

Personal Description:
I am currently a third year Undergraduate student at the University of Birmingham studying Medicine. As an ex student at Queen Elizabeth's School for Boys I have an enthusiasm for learning which stems from my deep desire to achieve success. I have a fondness for teaching and have so for long periods of time. As well as teaching I enjoy to play football and I also thoroughly enjoy travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught numerous students at QE boys and have aided them throughout with GCSE English and GCSE/A-Level Sciences also. This has involved me coordinating lesson plans and detailed presentations for classes of up to 12 pupils. Having been through the stress of exams, I have also held numerous study groups and sessions in order to aid pupils further. I have also taught Year 7 and Year 9 pupils on a one-to-one basis in a range of subjects including Biology, English and Chemistry. I have also tutored IGCSE Chemistry students on a one-to-one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that the best way to tutor is to understand the pupil and their best methods of learning, rather than enforcing my ways upon them. After having been through the entire secondary school process myself I feel that it is important to engage with students and interact with them, providing them with new and refreshing ways to analyse, comprehend and apply the knowledge with which they are taught.

It is important that a student is able to relate to their tutor and feels at ease to ask questions to quash any qualms they may have and I feel the best way to do that is to provide an environment which is comfortable and encouraging. With extensive knowledge of a variety of exam boards, I will seek to dissect the relevant specifications for the subjects and relay them in a way which I feel the student will best understand.

Tutoring and learning is not meant to be a daunting process and the best teachers in my experience are those who you are able to talk to openly whilst making you think in order to get the best out of you.

Personal Description:
A graduate of Cambridge University and a father of two children, I am a Latin teacher in a Surrey preparatory school.

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 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.

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!

Personal Description:
An established QTS qualified Mathematics teacher with experience of teaching from (KS1-KS4) both within numerous schools and private tutoring. I have extensive experience in raising achievement, exam preparation and creating personal curriculum planning and interventions to ensure best results from children.

Teaching Experience:

Over 5 years of experience in planning and delivering well-structured lessons that engage and motivate students.
Experience in successfully preparing students for 7+/11+ exams, SATS exams, and GCSE exams.

I have experience of creating Schemes of Learning for the new GCSE Mathematics (9-1) qualification, which has allowed me to focus on the necessary content, skills and problem solving strategies that students need to tackle this new qualification.

I am hard working and expect the best from myself and my students, to ensure the very best result is achieved for those that I teach. I have a bank of resources for all levels, which include past exam papers, grade booster packs, and intervention resources all intended to achieve the maximum potential of the students.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student has a different style of learning, and I adapt my lessons according to this. Engagement of lesson is most important and ensure my students are working at their optimum and with interest.

I use student data to identify weaknesses and strengths in order to complete and solidify knowledge gaps. I have experience of using Edexcel results plus to achieve such a task, which is highly effective.

I ensure my students understand the topics at hand at a deep level, so that they are able to apply what they have learnt to exam questions. I work closely with exam style questions for which I have access to a bank of resources.
