Having recently completed my professional accountancy examinations I am looking to begin tutoring on a part time basis from
September 16.

Teaching Experience:

I have not tutored previously but have volunteered at King Athelstan Primary School (1 year), mentored placement students (1 year) and taught dance (3 years) whilst undergoing my university studies.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring would be the same method I have used in my personal studies: gaining a sound understanding of core areas of the syllabus throughout the academic year with past paper practice being the ultimate key to success.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching off and on for 25 years at tertiary and secondary levels. I have had several careers including being a Chartered Surveyor, lecturer, businessman and teacher. I have worked in the Caribbean, South America and Africa apart from the UK. I enjoy travelling, cycling and current affairs.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate from the University of Kent - I graduated with a First Class Honours in German. I live in Sidcup (South East London) and currently have a part time job in London, but am looking to use my German skills a lot more than I do currently. I enjoy reading, watching films and listening to music!

Teaching Experience:

During my university studies, I did a year abroad in Germany where I worked as a Teaching Assistant. I helped teach English to pupils aged 10 to 18 and did private tutoring with two pupils. I successfully tutored each of them in both English and German!

Tutoring Approach:

I listen to what the pupil wants, and plan my lessons accordingly. At first, I will try a variety of different exercises in order to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie, and work both with their textbooks and create my own exercises to help them enhance their skills, focussing on where they most need improvement e.g. pronunciation, different aspects of grammar or missing vocabulary.

Personal Description:
-Graduated with a Masters Degree (2.1) in Civil Engineering from Loughborough University.

-This has led me to maintain excellent Mathematics and analytical skills which I apply to my tuition methods.

-Generally teach 1 to 1 but also able to cover 1 to 2 and small groups in any of the following subjects:

-Maths and English Primary Level including SATs
-11+ Entrance Exams (Kent/Medway) including all aspects of Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
-Maths Key Stage 3 (Year 7 - Year 9)
-Maths GCSE (Foundation, Higher, Linear/Modular)
-Maths IGCSE
-Maths A-Level

-As an Ex Grammar School student I have experience in sitting and passing the 11+ tests myself as well as a generally strong educational background (including strong A-Levels and excellent GCSE's).

-I am also happy to provide general UCAS, university and careers advice.

-Currently starting a tuition company.

Just give me a call to arrange a meeting to see if I can help.

Teaching Experience:

-Carrying out private tuition with over 60 students for almost 3 years in the following subject areas:

-Maths and English Primary Level including SATs
-11+ Entrance Exams (Kent/Medway) including all aspects of Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
-Maths Key Stage 3 (Year 7 - Year 9)
-Maths GCSE (Foundation, Higher, Linear/Modular)
-Maths IGCSE
-Maths AS/A-Level

-Success rate has been excellent across the board and references/CV are available on request.

-Typically GCSE students are helped to move at least one grade up compared to before tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

-I take a very methodical and structured approach to tuition. This starts with a careful observation and assessment of a students strengths and weaknesses.

-From there I workout the most suitable way to get them towards their goal and to improve general skills such as problem solving, speed awareness, exam/revision techniques, memory improvements etc.These methods have been tried, tested and refined.

-Topics taught are personalised to the individual students strengths and weaknesses as well as individual progress rate.

-Students motivation and confidence is another factor which is worked on continuously.

-A broad range of resources is used to keep work varied where appropriate and trying to teach independent working is a constant.

Personal Description:
I am now a full time tutor after spending two decades teaching Mathematics and Science.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced teacher. I have been the Head of Mathematics at a private school and previously taught in state schools.

Tutoring Approach:

The first three tutoring sessions are quite diagnostic. The aim is not only to find out strengths and weaknesses but also to see how quickly we can cover topics with most of the information retained.
As we cover material at a much faster rate than in normal class lessons.; recaps at speed become more import as lessons develop and confidence improves. The syllabus and past exam papers provide the main framework for most lessons.
Exam technique lessons, examiners mark schemes and revision materials are normally provided.

Subjects
  • Combined Science
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)
  • Physics
  • 11+ (secondary) (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher with 23 years experience working in schools in Eastbourne. My main subject is Art (I have a degree in ceramics) so much of my teaching is through creative, visual, practical and kinaesthetic teaching whereby my pupils enjoy their lessons and are enthused into a love of learning. I am also involved in the Eastbourne Art scene and paint at home when I get the chance. I am friendly, fair and holistic in my approach . I have two children (15 and 17) whom I try and fit my work around and feel I could offer a positive tutoring experience to children and their families in this area of teaching. I can also offer English tuition for those who may have English as an additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified in 1993 with a post graduate certificate in education after having been a self employed potter in Bristol exhibiting my ceramics. I have co-ordinated Art, Maths and played an active role in early years play and learning with all the necessary knowledge of the primary curriculum including the Foundation Stage. I have taught many children with E.A.L. and have a sound knowledge of special needs teaching using methods such as Makaton signing and Widgit symbols to enhance children's understanding. I would use the Numicon system to support primary maths and am familiar with Key Stage 1 and 2 age range as this is what I have taught mostly over the last few years. I am familiar with SATS and have been on many courses over the years on all subjects. I particularly enjoy history, art and maths and could teach very basic French too. I have recently trained to be a specialist language teacher and visit schools across the county.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in encouragement, boosting self esteem and making tutoring interesting, as I have seen what boredom, frustration and poor engagement can do to young children. They need to be switched on and confident in what they do in order to achieve. I always start at a level a child can succeed in and am aware that sometimes you have to change your approach depending on the child. I have a bank of subject and topic ideas suitable for this age range and have been able to think on my toes over the years.

  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
In terms of academic qualifications, I have an accountancy and finance background with further specialization (MSc) in Finance and Risk Management. Throughout my educational years, I have been a distinction holder. During my MSc degree in UK as well, I have maintained my academic record. I can not only teach academic subjects but also assist research students in their research work as for the last three years i am working on the dissertations as well as on the coursework for students.

I am teaching for the last 5 years to students who are pursuing accounting and business studies as their career. I also helped students for modules like Human Resource, Project Management, Process Management, Research Methods and e.t.c.
I have done ACCA apart from this i am left with couple of exams of ACA and done CFAB. Apart from this i have also done undergraduate and Postgraduate.
I am doing job since 2008 and also has an experience of working as:
Career Advisor
Course Coordinator
Teacher Assistant

My classes are very interactive and communicative. It is very important for me that my students enjoy the learning of a new language and culture. I teach at Morley College (where I also teach Creative Writing in Spanish), at companies and on a private basis, both to individuals and small groups. I have teaching studies from Instituto Cervantes London, Goldsmiths University and Harvard University in the US. I have a background in Psychology and I am also dedicated to writing fiction (short stories).
I look forward to hearing from you!
Kind regards,
Sara

I have more than 9 years of teaching experience. I have taught in Denmark, Sweden, United States and now the UK. I have taught to individuals and small groups in a variety of settings and with a variety of goals.

Tutoring Approach:

I love interactive classes, and strongly believe that the learning space should be used to put the language into practice. I create a lot of materials myself, which assures that they are adapted to the level and needs of my students. I like to incorporate technology resources into my classes.

Personal Description:
I graduated in 2006 from Queen Mary University of London after achieving a 2:1 in English and History. It took me a couple of years before I found my passion for teaching, a passion that was made even more acute, by having worked in more conventional jobs, which I didn't enjoy after leaving university. I have a passion for horses and horse riding and have a young horse, I love writing, reading, cooking and walking my dogs as well as teaching. I love living in the country and taking part in all aspects of country life.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career teaching in Andover as a full time primary school teacher. I started off in Year 5 and progressed into Year 3. I have tutored a variety of different children:
Child 1: 2010- present, 16 year old (Autistic), GCSE Geography, English Literature, Science, Maths and Environmental Science. B-Tec in Countryside management.
Child 2: April 2011-November 2011, 10 year old, Year 6 Maths, 11+ preparation.
Child 3: January 2011- September 2011, 10 year old, 11+ preparation.
Child 4: January 2011- Present, 8 year old, Year 3/4 Maths tuition, horse riding.
Child 5: April 2011-Present, 7 year old (Dyslexic/Dysnumerate), Maths tuition.
Child 6: January 2012 - present, 11+ preparation.
I have been a freelance educational journalist for three years now writing for `Primary teacher Update` magazine which is a very reflective exercise and I thoroughly enjoy it.
In September 2012 I moved to a school in Ringwood and was the Year 3 Year Leader covering a maternity position.
(September 2013) As I`ve moved into my fifth year as a qualified teacher, I have now settled into a different school in Ringwood and am back in Year 5 enjoying supporting a wide variety of different abilities of children.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very individualised style and approach to tutoring. I believe that each child is completely unique and that if you find the right key, whether its jumping on a trampoline whilst reciting their times tables or making a colourful mind map to understand how the bodies immune system works, you can unlock their understanding. I enjoy tutoring because you see children really blossom and the progress they make with one on one support is truely astounding and lovely to be a part of. I believe communication between parent and tutor as well as tutor and tutee is key to success. If you would like to discuss my methods further please don`t hesitate to call for an informal chat.

Personal Description:
I love history! I have been 'doing' history since I was 14, and it is something that encapsulates me into a whole different world. I have worked as a history teacher at a secondary school for 10 years, and have loved delving back into the past with the older and younger students alike. I studied and worked in archaeology before becoming a history teacher, and found working with real objects from the past was an amazing experience. More recently, I have reignited my love of English too, especially with regards to theatre and plays. Being close to London enables me to visit the West End as much as I can, and immerse myself in the amazing culture of Language and drama.

At home, I am mum to a 7 year old daughter, and 5 year old son, a cat and a dog. We keep ourselves busy being outdoors as much as possible and are totally hooked on camping! We enjoy the freedom it allows and the back-to-basics feeling. Plus the kids love getting muddy and staying up after dark, so camping allows for total liberation! My daughter has got the theatre bug too, and together we enjoy live performances as much as we can.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History at KS3, GCSE, AS and A-Level for 13 years. For four of those years I was Head of Department, responsible for issues such as curriculum, exams and monitoring student progress, so I am experienced in identifying areas of need for students and helping them to progress. I have been very successful with exam results, and have enjoyed guiding tutee's through their exam subjects.

I have very good knowledge of many of the exam boards and have been a marker for AQA and Edexcel GCSE History since 2014.
I am also a lead moderator for the A-Level Unit 4 coursework with Edexcel. I have substantial knowledge and understanding of what exam boards are looking for in responses to exam questions and coursework objectives.

I have been teaching GCSE English and Functional Skills in English to a wide range of people - adults and youth groups - since 2013, which has broadened my teaching spectrum, and provided me with new challenges in terms of my teaching. It is something that has been enjoyable and that I intend to continue.

I have been tutoring since Dec 2011, and really enjoy the change from class teaching. I have tutored a wide range of students with a wide range of needs, and have taught to all the exam boards. It is really rewarding to set up individual lessons and focus on exactly what is needed, knowing I can offer help and support to students. I like to be well prepared for individual lessons and to make the most of the time we have to improve techniques, subject knowledge and overall exam grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that what really helps students to progress is an understanding of exam technique. Having knowledge of the subject is important, but knowing how to handle it and use it in an exam situation if key to gaining top grades. I like to adopt a friendly and approachable manner with students to encourage focus and progress. I will go through essays and exam questions to identify areas that could be improved, and suggest ways of improving the use of language to make the most of student's knowledge. Giving feedback for written work is imperative to aid progress and this will take a large role in my tutoring.

I have also had the responsibility for the Physics department in the past. I teach Chemistry and Physics at A Level and I have a good knowledge of current specifications including AQA, OCR and CIE.

I have also been a Research Scientist for a number of years and teaching undegraduates and postgraduates has been part of my routine. I have also worked as a secondary school teacher for three years abroad, teaching Physics and Chemistry up to A-Levels. I am passionate about teaching science to the young and have hence been involved in a lot of outreach activities (clarifying NMR, visible Spectroscopy, Mass Spectroscopy, ect) at the UEA during my time there.

Teaching Experience:

7 Years teaching experience at A Level for Chemistry and Physics

Tutoring Approach:

One on one teaching is certainly different from classroom teaching and I like to use this opportunity to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a particular student. Each of my sessions are planned thoroughly with appropriate activities and teaching resources. Having sound basics for me is important for students to progress further and I therefore like to brush up on them from time to time depending on the needs of the particular student.

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old Primary school teacher with a range of experience working with children and young people. In particular, I have worked with children who experience barriers to learning and I enjoy aiding them to experience success in education. I am a fun but hard-working and reliable individual with a passion for working with children.

Teaching Experience:

Before embarking on teacher training, I worked as a teaching assistant in both primary and post-primary settings. I provided support to children with English as an additional language and with special educational needs in both settings. I was responsible for planning, setting targets and assessment of the children I worked with. I also supervised a Homework Club, providing assistance to post-primary children in various subjects including children with special education needs and those who are gifted and talented. During this 2 year period, I tutored a number of children in the evenings on a one to one basis ranging in age from Primary 2 to Primary 7, and I developed very positive relationships with the families I worked with.

I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and during university placements, often took on a teaching role working with children one to one or in small groups; assessing and delivering therapy in a child-centred approach.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe using a child-centred approach is key to success. I consider what might interest and motivate the child in terms of resources and materials, and work at a pace appropriate for the child. It is important for the child to experience success but also to be appropriately challenged in order to reach their potential. I embrace a fun approach when working with children and would like to provide them with a positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
I have had much help from tutors throughout my academic life so I can understand the value that is offered to a tutee by receiving extra tuition in this way. I am currently studying a Ph.D in Medical Science at Aberdeen University and studied my undergraduate degree here also gaining a 2.1 in my honours degree in Biomedical Science (physiology). The hours spent doing work towards my doctorate is fairly flexible and I have a car meaning my ability to fit around the schedule of others is very good. I consider myself outgoing, patient and very reliable.

Teaching Experience:

I was Biology prefect in my final year at school which involved helping to teach classes up until fourth year. I also carried out some work experience teaching primary school children PE and as part of my Ph.D I will be demonstrating for and tutoring first and second year undergraduates at the university. I have also had vast one on one tutoring experience from 13+ maths and science to standard grade/intermediate physics to advanced higher/A-level Biology and Chemistry.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be engaging, challenging and above all I will strive to create an environment which makes the tutee want to push him/herself. The result will be that the tutee will enjoy doing learning and the progress and benefits will start to become apparent. It was through this style of teaching/ tutoring that I found my strengths in academia and ultimately successes, therefore I wish to pass this confidence in learning on.

Personal Description:
I have been tutoring for over three years, with excellent results , while working in the maths department of a secondary school where I have been for 10 years.

I teach students of all ages and abilities, including those with SEN (special educational needs). In a classroom situation, on a one to one basis or as part of a small group.

I have extensive knowledge of the curriculum taught in years 7-11 and excellent resources, including past exam papers.

Teaching Experience:

I teach GCSE Maths to students who need extra help to reach their targets, this can be in a classroom situation or as part of a small group.
I also run intervention groups in tutor time and after school that offer extra help to GCSE students before their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I get a great deal of a satisfaction from working with students and helping them become more confident in a subject they quite often dislike because they find it difficult.
I have a very calm and patient manner as I want to build a good relationship with my students and for them to feel relaxed.
After assessing the student I set realistic goals for them so they feel they are achieving, each student is different and learns at a different rate, the important thing is for them to make the progress they are capable of.

Personal Description:
If you're looking for either practical training, or simply looking for a creative outlet that perhaps your day to day doesn't allow, I would be delighted to offer you lessons!

Teaching Experience:

Cambridge educated, I'm a professional painter and illustrator (see rebeccabright.co.uk for examples!), and have extensive experience tutoring; from young children right through to adults looking to explore new skills - both in art and in English (literature & foregin language).

I'm a big believer that there is no such thing as someone who 'can't draw or paint' - it's simply about gaining the confidence to explore different styles and find what feels good for you.

Tutoring Approach:

Very much about you - lessons should be the part of the week you look forward to, so while it's about growing and honing your skills, it's also about doing it in a way that you enjoy and relish, and will put to practise time and time again.

We'll experiment in different media and different styles, challenging what you know and like and breaking new ground.
