Personal Description:
I have taught in many capacities as a tutor, classroom teacher, special needs tutor, teacher's assistant and was deputy head of English at an Outstanding South London secondary school. I enjoy working with young people and helping them to achieve. I value enjoyment as top of the list. If you enjoy lessons you enjoy learning but I also value making what you learn of a high quality. I think you must have pride and hard work to get the most out of whatever you learn and with those ingredients I believe anyone can do anything.

Teaching Experience:

3 years as a teaching assistant and special needs worker at a variety of schools. Achieved outstanding results with ADHD, aspergers, dyslexic and autistic pupils.
Personal tutoring for young people in maths, music, English and French.
Trained as a TEFL teacher and 5 years experience working at home and abroad teaching children and adults.
Deputy Head of English at a South London secondary school where I achieved fantastic GCSE results and taught from year 7-13. I wrote and delivered schemes of work on grammar, English Literature (Dickens, Shakespeare etc) and English Language.
I currently deliver drama and English in many settings such as prisons, with refugees, in schools and with theatres.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in building a rapport of achievement and enjoyment with the tutee. Patience and a sense of humour is vital. I would prepare in detail and allow the lesson to be focused and achievable. I have taken on over 12 tutees from this website aged 6-16 and have enjoyed each one. I can provide appropriate references. I set high goals and believe in adapting to the learning styles of the tutees.

Personal Description:
I am a mathematician, with a special interest in applied mathematics and statistics. I worked for some years in University departments as a tutor and then lecturer. More recently I have worked for almost two decades in industry as a mathematician at a prestigious research centre in Cambridge. I am familiar with many aspects of secondary education through my daughter, who has recently completed her A levels at Hills Road 6th form college, and a son at secondary school. My daughter has just begun reading PPE at at Oriel College Oxford. I am currently working at the Dept. of Engineering, University of Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mathematics and Physics, to undergraduates from a wide variety of disciplines. I have particular experience of teaching Mathematics to people whose primary interests lie in Business studies and in Engineering. I also gained valuable insight into adult education when I taught adult part-time students.
I have also provided tutorials for students with many different requirements including A level and undergraduate Physics & Mathematics courses and, for example, GMAT Mathematics prep for MBA entrance exams.
Recently I have had the opportunity to tutor intensively for STEP tests and this has become a personal interest -there is always a new challenge, and the examiners are skilled at finding new ways to test the same knowledge level.

Tutoring Approach:

The details of the correct approach vary from one tutee to another, but the principles remain the same. I seek to establish the student's ability within the context of a given aim and to then set realistic objectives.
I think that most students have more mathematical ability than they themselves believe; this can be brought out in a positive fashion once negative stereotypes are discarded. Also the application of mathematics to the real world can be exciting and profitable.

Parental Comment
Hi Brian,

I hope you're enjoying the Summer break.

I just wanted to let you know that Kalen has a A* for maths and an A for further Maths. He's very pleased with this and on behalf of him I'd like to say thank you so much for all your help.

Overall he got A*A*AAB and is off to Warwick to do a general engineering course.

Thanks again Brian,

Suneela


STUDENT COMMENTS
Dear Brian. I found our tutorials very helpful and feel much more able to hit the ground running when I return to Oxford. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone else I know in need of tuition.
Peter N, returning undergraduate.

Brian helped me to revise my university maths before starting an MSc course 10 years after completing my undergraduate degree. He was patient, non-judgmental of my rusty abilities, and gave useful examples of mathematical problems to help explain some very difficult concepts. He is very reliable and a pleasure to work with. I would have no problem recommending Brian to others and would certainly see him again for further tuition should the need arise.
David C, returning graduate student

Another parent comment
Brian is helping my daughter who attends Hills Road with both physics and maths and she has just had her fifth session. This is the first time with have engaged with a personal tutor so really wasn't sure what we were doing and started out with some trepidation. We soon were able to ensure that the hour we spent with Brian was really productive and useful. Brian has been really helpful and and this has increased my daughters confidence and knowledge which is exactly what we were hoping for.

New student comments
I'm just emailing to tell you that my physics unit 2 exam went quite well. There were only a few small questions that I couldn't answer. I will tell you my result when I get them on the 14th of August. I must thank you for helping me over the past few months. I really have no clue how badly these exams would have gone if you did not help me. Thank you so much for your help.
Calum M AS Physics student.

Personal Description:
My greatest interest is my family - my husband and our four children aged 18, 17, 11, and 9. We enjoy many activities together, with the highlight being our summer holidays where we self-drive to various places in Europe.

I also love learning and have just started my masters degree in maths.

As the mother of four children I have to be well organised and efficient. I enjoy a challenge and love teaching. I can work well alone or as part of a team and I believe I am an effective communicator.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching maths from Entry Level through to Level 2 for teaching assistants, adults in the community and young offenders. I also teach "Keeping up with the children" courses for parents wanting to help their children. I have also been tutoring children in Years 10 & 11 on a 1-1 basis to help them with their GCSE Maths at Swavesey Village college.

In the last two years I have been working as a maths teacher at an independent secondary school in Cambridge.

I have recently been appointed the Head of Mathematics at a local prep school which I am enjoying very much. However this does mean that I am now only available to tutor during the school holiday.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly enjoy my work. I relate well to children and adults. I believe its important to instill confidence and subscribe to an active learning approach with a variety of resources where possible. I also use a variety of alternative methods to meet individual learning needs as I firmly believe that one size does not fit all.

Personal Description:
Currently studying full-time Pure and Applied Mathematics at the University of Aberdeen.

I am a friendly, conscientious individual who cares deeply about young people's personal and academic development.

When not working or studying, I enjoy taking care of my health through the gym and a variety of sports.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years of tutoring experience. I have personally tutored 40+ pupils of varying mathematical ability, which has allowed me to refine and become very confident in my approach.

A large number of my tutees were found through word-of-mouth from former tutees pleased with their results.

I now have quite a few reviews, I have been registered on other websites for years and would be more than happy to supply references from other past tutees for your peace of mind.

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that everyone deserves the best chance at school. However, more and more of my tutees are complaining that their schools are failing to provide that. It seems that due to funding cutbacks/lack of qualified teachers, only the most naturally gifted pupils are given the right attention and everyone else is left at the bottom of the pack.

I have no such prejudice. It does not matter to me if you are a straight A student looking for some insurance, or if you are a bottom set student who has always struggled with maths. All I expect from my tutees is their attention and a willingness to learn. If you care about your education and future prospects, then so do I.

I am available for tutoring throughout the year, even during the summer holidays for 1st/2nd year university resits.

I am available weekday evenings and at the weekend, just let me know which times would suit you. I reply very quickly.

I have a car so travelling to your home is not an issue, however I may require additional fuel money depending on your location.

Personal Description:
I am a kind person with a passion for music. I have many interests such as playing in bands, writing my own music, and music technology.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching all age groups from adults to young primary school children. I took a teaching module as part of my undergraduate music degree at trinity college of music. I am familiar with teaching one-to-one and groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I find everyone's brain absorbs information differently so I find it best to incorporate visual and aural exercises. I like to tailor what I teach to each individual for their own strengths and weaknesses to improve.

Subjects

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am married with three children and seven grandchildren. I like to keep fit and attend a local gym regularly. I have been involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme as an instructor and assessor and I am an active member of the Combined Cadet Force (Royal Navy Section).
Needless to say I am CRB checked. The most recent one dated last year. These last for three years.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully taught mathematics in schools in Nottingham, Surrey, Hampshire and Lancashire over the past twenty years. I took early retirement this summer from teaching but am still an examiner for GCSE higher paper.

During those years, I have had considerable success in helping my students to achieve A*'s in mathematics and statistics and have also been able to give additional help to some students to enable them to improve their grades. In addition to this, I have taught students who were struggling with some aspects of mathematics and been able to give them an alternative approach, thus helping them to a greater understanding of the topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to be able to get to know exactly what the tutee's problems are in mathematics and will usually ask to see some of their work in order to get a starting point from which to build. It might be that they are only struggling in one particular area and that's fine, I can help them with that, or they may need some consolidation;bringing all the topics into play in order to solve complex problems more easily and therefore building confidence.
I can supply worksheets or will work from their own textbook if they prefer. I usually set homework for them to work on before the next session.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Italian with a degree in European Language and extensive teaching experience. I have been based in Oxford for the past 6 years, after having lived in different European countries. I am an enthusiast linguist and my multilingual family is testimonial to that (a French husband, and trilingual children).

Teaching Experience:

I have gained experience in teaching to both adults and younger students (secondary school and degree level), both in formal context (I taught in university degree courses and schools) and less formal (evening and leisure courses) as well as Italian for business (directly to companies for their employees).

Tutoring Approach:

I privilege the communicative approach as after all languages are made to communicate! This allows all lessons to be more relaxed and rewarding as small results can be achieved - and seen - every time. I have run absolute beginners intensive courses and my aim is to allow the student(s) to go home speaking from the first time, however little it might be. At the same time, I also tend not to forget about grammar as it is the structure of the language and gives a better insight and understanding, but even grammar doesn't necessarily need to be taught in a very conservative manner.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced teacher of both classics and modern languages, and have taught in a variety of secondary schools. I have stopped classroom teaching now because of the demands of a young family but I am keen to carry on teaching in a different capacity. I am passionate about languages, words and communication and love to share this with others. I have lived abroad for prolonged periods in France and Italy, and travel to see friends there whenever possible.

Teaching Experience:

Since completing my PGCE in 1992 I have taught Latin, Greek, French and Italian, from beginners to A level and Oxbridge, in secondary schools, both private and state. More recently I have been giving private lessons to both adults and teenagers.
***PLEASE NOTE THAT I TEACH ANCIENT GREEK, NOT MODERN! The UK tutors website does not give Ancient Greek as an option in the drop down list. I am not able to teach modern Greek.

Tutoring Approach:

Successful language teaching should combine a fun approach using oral practice including song lyrics and games with a more structured approach to grammar; this gives the student confidence that they really understand the language used. The advantage of private lessons is that I can focus on what the individual learner wants, which might be lots of oral practice to become more proficient at speaking, or to pass a specific exam. I do like to set homework from week to week as this is an important part of progress; but it is not compulsory!

Personal Description:
I have a First Class (Hons) Degree in International Relations and Management from the University of Aberdeen. I also possess an MSc in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship from Manchester Business School.

I am a very positive, energetic but also a very determined individual who strives for excellence and who achieves desired results through hard work and commitment. Furthermore, I am a passionate traveler, particularly fond of South-East Asia; I love challenges and I cannot stand boredom.

Teaching Experience:

I organised English classes for international students at Aberdeen University. Additionally, I arranged and participated in multiple study groups during both undergraduate and postgraduate study. While taking part in numerous university projects I acted as chief editor of the work produced which demonstrates my well-developed writing skills.

I proofread dissertations (undergraduate and postgraduate) as well as essays.

Tutoring Approach:

"Knowledge is power", however, there are different ways of absorbing it. I will adjust my style of teaching to every student to ensure they can learn fast and easily. I am demanding but effective.; hard work and determination are key to success.

Personal Description:
I am a confident, diligent and sociable person, with a wide knowledge of world history, and specialising in American and South-East Asian history and culture. I hold a double first class Bachelors degree in History and American Studies from Canterbury Christ Church University, and have had many years experience leading youth projects such as youth councils, young persons' scrutiny forums (YPSF) and have acted as a liasion on several historical and cultural preservation projects such as the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) and the Church House Preservation Committee.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience as a teaching assistant to KS3 and KS4 level history at a state secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a holistic approach to the teaching of history, ensuring that the student becomes engaged within a fuller understanding of the period being studied. As a former student and teach of history, I realise that the principal block to a tutee's understanding of historical concepts is a lack of immersion within the relevant time-frames and thus an inability to fully comprehend why certain actions were taken, and the wider effect this had.

Thus in my approach I am firm believer that it is as important for every student to understand to a higher level than that offered by the current state curriculum the context of the period they are studying. As a consequence I offer tailored introductions to said period's culture, economy, religious and political setting, and even physical geography.

Furthermore, I offer the necessary skills to craft this knowledge into well-reasoned, informed essays. My intimate knowledge of the state education system and beyond has imbued me with the ability to gauge how assignments will be assessed and thus I can work with students not only on improving their knowledge, but showcasing this in highly-marked, structured and coherent written forms.

I use a number of methods to achieve this, including homework assignments, but also using character adoption, audio-visual aids and a mixture of written and verbal questions of varying length and form.

** MONEY BACK GUARANTEE** If you are not satisfied with me as tutor after the free first lesson, I will personally compensate you in full for the fee charged on this website to get my contact details.

Hi, I've been studying on an undergraduate Biomedical Science BSc degree at the University of Leeds. I first started tuition in 2012.

Teaching is my specialty, and I love teaching Biology. I`ve had experience teaching A-Level Biology (including AQA and OCR) to many students and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm determined to help other students successfully study this brilliant subject. I have also voluntarily been teaching students, mainly between the age of 12-18 at an established educational institute in Bradford for fifteen months.

With each student, I made sure my lessons are focused and very efficient, making sure the student thoroughly understands the topic area. After this, I move on to practicing exam style questions with each student (which is critical for a strong exam performance).

I`m currently offering GCSE/A-Level Biology tuition to students in West Yorkshire for £10 per hour (with the first lesson free). I can also travel within West Yorkshire.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Ahmad.

Personal Description:
I am professional software engineer with over 12 years experience of working in corporate sector.I have trained computer scientists at different level, from school boys to professionals.

My expertise are mainly Programming with experience of various languages Java, C#.net,VB.net,C++, PHP and few other scripting languages.

I have been teaching GCSE ICT and also University undergraduate students for years. As every university have different syllabus and course line, so if course line is provided I can assist/teach to understand subject and pass with good grades.

I also have my own course line for Web development. If you are interested to build your own website or to become a professional web designer, I can teach through all phases.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students at different level through out my career. I have experience of teaching academic subjects to individuals & groups as well as conducting professional training classes.
I am very comfortable to teach professionals, college students or amateur learners.

Teaching is my passion and I love knowledge sharing.

Tutoring Approach:

You can not learn anything until you develop interest in subject, I believe in interactive approach to teach and share knowledge. A teacher with commercial production experience is much better than just a teacher. I share my practical experiences that really help students to understand things better.

I teach students in groups as well individuals, with option of traveling to their home, my place or online as environment matters a lot in learning process and I give students option to select it for their own comfort.

Personal Description:
I'm 17 years old and am a current student of the Sixth Form at St Bartholomew's School. The four subjects I'm currently taking are Maths, German, History and Politics. In my AS levels I received an A in all three subjects I took, including in Maths. I am a big sports fan and am known to often watch football games at Hungerford Town and Reading. I can also be found at most Wales international home matches. I have experience in volunteering as a befriender for the Alzheimer's Society.

Teaching Experience:

I have a Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership, a course which I undertook alongside GCSEs, where I coached children in Years 3-6 to play sports. At school, I was a year long mentor for new Year 7s as a Year 9.

Tutoring Approach:

Patience is key. Children and young teenagers, who may find maths difficult, can easily become frustrated. It's up to a tutor to let the child overcome their frustration by enabling them to solve complex problems and to make maths interesting. It's often challenging for children to use up their spare time for extra tutoring, so tutoring must be enjoyable and enlightening in equal measure.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£15 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am currently 20 years old and am at university at UCL. I am reading a BA(Hons) degree in Politics and Economics. Specialising in contemporary Russian politics, the history of German social thought, Republicanism and Macroeconomics.

Throughout my education, I have developed both an understanding of how to write well but also to help others improve their capacity to read, write, comprehend and speak English. My TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification has trained me how to be an effective tutor. I have spent time abroad pursuing my passion of education, in particular in Vietnam were my teaching ranged from large classes of thirty students to 1-1 classes. My approach is punctual, reliable, efficient, patient and the work itself will be tailored to the needs and ambitions of the student.

I am also available to teach other subjects such as Politics, History and Philosophy from a beginner to advanced level. In addition to this, I believe that the process of education should be enjoyable and rewarding because academic passion supports your learning.

Please feel free to ask me any questions at all and to contact me if you would like to organise a tutorial. I hope you will find my price agreeable, but I would also like to offer the first tutorial for free, so that we can get to know one another and establish your aims. Thank you!

Personal Description:
I'm an independent consultant, trainer and facilitator, working mainly in the business world. I design and run learning workshops in collaborative decision-making and lean thinking for companies of different sizes. I also facilitate Open Space events, inviting large numbers of people to co-create new ways forward in self-organised events where all the participants are at the centre and not a menu of speakers. These are like 1-or 2-day Hackathons, within organisations, such as Innovation Hackathon, Greenup Hackathon and Reinventing Work Hackathon. I also run similar events on demand within communities, in order to bring out engagement, inviting members of communities to co-create and co-determine aspects of their community.

In the business world I'm a bit of a change maverick, wanting to create a better world, and especially better workplaces where people can thrive and grow, rather the usual drudgery of work. Organisations benefit from that too from become eco-systems that thrive innovatively. I learned my 'participative' 'tools' from many years of experimentation and from working in different parts of the world. I have lived in North America, Europe and in Asia, and have travelled way beyond that.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my early teaching experience started with 13 years' English teaching to mainly corporate clients in Japan. I consider myself a highly experienced, versatile and resourceful former Language Teacher (TEFL), Tutor and Coach with further background as Intercultural Consultant. I have extensive experience teaching English in Asia, with expertise in accelerated learning techniques (e.g. suggestopedia) and Peer-based learning through Self-Organising Learning Environments.

I have taught classes and individuals at various levels and for various purposes. I have also done of business English and specialised English for professionals. While I have more experience working with groups than individuals, even as business coach and corporate trainer I have worked most of my life in an educational learning environment. The most important, however, is not about teaching, but about the student learning; it is hence imperative to start from the perspective of what the learner actually needs and working from there. I pride myself in being able to design courses and tuition tailor-made to the specific needs of the learners.

Tutoring Approach:

Unless I am teaching towards academic aims (e.g. GCSE support), I view language as something that is used to communicate with, it is something one does, we do not normally learn a foreign language just for the sake of passive knowledge. To me therefore it is far more important to use the language than just learn it. My approach to tutoring therefore is quite action oriented, we do things with the language, and just like children (who did not learn their native language from a book) language is always used in a context, so it's important to provide contextual clues when introducing new language.

I emphasize engagement and participation a lot, with a strong focus on real communication (rather than practiced communication where possible). Very early on I introduce meta-language, which is language about language (e.g. could you repeat that?, What do you mean by....?, Why do I say ... and not ...?), because this the only kind of real communication that happens in a language class, and thus it is a real opportunity to use real communication. But above all, language should be fun, learn by doing and lively, and my interactive approach always works towards that
