Personal Description:
My name is Safowan and I'm currently working as a software tester. Having graduated with a 2.1 honours in Mathematics I want to inspire young learners to achieve and fulfil their aims and ambitions during evenings and weekends. Tutoring has always been rewarding for me and it gives me great pleasure to share my knowledge to benefit others.

Teaching Experience:

My experience in teaching ranges from a placement in a secondary school as part of the student associates scheme (SAS) to private tutoring.

During my time at Royal Docks Community School as a Teaching Assistant, I worked closely with senior teachers in the Mathematics department. My daily responsibilities included; assisting pupils with their learning by working with small groups and on a one to one basis, assisting teachers with any administration tasks, occasionally working with SEN students, helping to ensure pupil disruption is kept to a minimum, having performance reviews from head of department, and ensuring school's policies and procedures are maintained at all times.

I also have three years experience in tutoring a range of students, from ks2 through to gcse. This enabled me to gain experience of lesson planning, marking, exam preparation and identifying weaknesses and addressing them according to the student's ability. Therefore, time management played an important role as I had to prepare for each lesson, taking into consideration any changes that might occur in the lesson, and ensure the student learns a topic with enough practice questions under timed lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching would be to tutor my subject in a fun and friendly environment. Mathematics can be a difficult subject to grasp but can be understood better and enjoyable to learn if taught in a more positive and proactive manner. I prefer to explain the very basics of each topic at first before engaging with the student to try out the practice questions. As the student grows in more confidence, they will learn some exam strategies and techniques to overcome exam pressures.

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

Personal Description:
I am a final year PhD researcher in Cambridge University, studying Biotechnology. My academic qualifications include:

- MSc Biochemical Engineering, University College London (2012)

- BSc Medical Biochemistry, King's College London (2011)

- International Baccalaureate (36), Bexley Grammar School (2008)
Maths (HL): 6
Biology (HL): 6
Chemistry (HL): 6

- GCSE (12 A* + A), Bexley Grammar School (2006)

What sets me apart from other tutors?

1) I have tutored a large number of students on a one-to-one basis for over 5 years, and they all went on to achieve their desired grades.
2) I am quite flexible in when I can offer lessons.
3) I am very flexible in what I teach, as I can cover all Sciences and Maths, so you don't need to find 2 or 3 different tutors!
4) I am quite young, which helps me see the problem from the student's perspective, since it wasn't that long ago when I was in their position.
5) I am able to tutor at GCSE level, A-Level or International Baccalaureate.

Since secondary school, Maths and the Sciences have always been my strengths, and I am lucky to have been able to apply both areas in my past and present degrees.
Besides English, I can speak Cantonese Chinese fluently, and a little bit of Mandarin Chinese.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past 5 years, I have tutored a variety of pupils, and every time the grades they end up obtaining have met or exceeded their targets.
Overall I have accumulated over 2000 hours of personal tuition.

I have experience with the Edexcel, OCR and AQA exam boards and can provide my students with relevant study materials.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide a friendly and informal environment. I usually let the student control the pace of the lesson by asking them to interrupt me if we arrive at a topic they find difficult.

Every student is different and my teaching style is adapted to their individual needs once we have identified their weaknesses.
I believe understanding is the best approach to learning and teaching. There's no point in just memorising things if you don't understand where they came from. I explain things in such a way that it is easy to understand, and I am very patient.

If the student has learnt something in school they didn't quite understand, I can go over the topic again with them during our lesson.
If the student understood everything in school, I can teach them new topics to prepare them for when they learn that topic in school.
Lastly, near exam times, I can offer intense exam revision and exam paper practice.

Below is a selection of feedback I have received on another tuition agency website.

=======================
From Mirfet (5/5): (GCSE Chemistry) Brilliant, gets on really well with my twin 15 year old boys… they really enjoy his lessons and I can hear that there is lots of really good discussions and interaction between them

Responsibilities as a Secondary school Teacher:
Plan and carry out lessons
Keep records of students grades
Set students targets either in a formal or informal setting. Eg parents evening or informal meeting with parent
Attended parents evening

Mark student's class work coursework, record their grades and plan based on weak and or strong areas identified
Ensure that students work to their full potential
Work closely with department heads and head of the years that I teach to monitor the student development in different areas

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is an investigative and supportive. ie their is a lot of logics or knowledge that I child sometimes laready have, by questioning sometimes these will come out. That way the child will remember the information fo a longer time as he/she contributed to the answer. She/he feels valued and a part of the teaching and learning process.
Each child I tutor is alway given a diagnostic test. From the test I would do a Individual Learning Plan. During tutoring as I identify weak areas I address them individually. I see education as a completed chain link, that is if a child is lacking in certain background knowledge, they will find it difficult to move forward effectively with their education. Unless these weak areas are address and their knowledge concretize they find it difficult to move on.
Parent's feedback is apart of this process and children must be praised throughout their learning, when neccessary and this needs to be done in context.

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:
Having completed A levels in Biology, Chemistry (and Politics) to A* standard, I have a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the current curriculum along with excellent organisational and interactional skills plus past tutoring experience. Whilst i'm pursuing my passion for music at the moment, I have a real affinity to science; holding a place at Kings College London to study Biochemistry in 2016.

Teaching Experience:

In terms of tutoring experience, mine is extensive! Since 2012, I've taught many students of varying abilities, all of which have achieved or surpassed their target grade.

My aim is to engage pupils and, working with each specific syllabus in mind, find imaginative and accessible ways of explaining unfamiliar concepts. I encourage my tutees to go through practice exams etc with me after covering a section. This way we can translate knowledge into actual results.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an approachable down-to-earth tutor to whom students can, whilst keeping focused and on track, relate. I am patient and understand the importance of asking questions - that's what tutors are for. A particular strength of mine is the ability to explain - i am highly competent in my subject areas, passing on knowledge effectively and imaginatively.

Personal Description:
There are plenty of "tutors" who offer many different subjects over a wide age range. However, I only offer A-level or I.B. Diploma (or equivalent)in maths, physics and chemistry to students who are still at school. I keep to just this because (so I'm told) I'm very good at teaching these subjects at this level, and it's what I enjoy doing.

As well as teaching I have published four maths books, available in hard-copy and kindle versions. One at GCSE level, two at A-level, and one that can be used by both age groups. These have sold worldwide.

It should also be noted that I only tutor from my home. With the number of students I tutor travelling would not be practical. There are plenty of tutors that are cheaper than me and prepared to travel, but a look at their qualifications and experience might make you think twice about using them.

Teaching Experience:

I have qualifications from excellent UK universities in all the subjects that I offer, and I am a UK qualified teacher. However, I'm very proud of the fact that most of my classroom teaching has been done outside the UK. This means that I have taught in good, well resourced, schools, which are not afflicted by the malaise from which so many UK schools suffer, and where the academic expectations of the school, parents and students are high. In such schools one is able to concentrate on ones teaching, which is seldom the case in UK schools. This is why I am now a full-time tutor. I can devote my energies completely to teaching the subjects I enjoy. In this capacity I teach many more hours A-level than the vast majority of classroom teachers. In fact, I probably teach more A-level in each of my subjects than most school based teachers do.

As already mentioned, as well as teaching in England I`ve also taught in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. I`ve taught across the entire 11 to 18 age range and at all abilities from struggling 11 year old students to top set 18 year old students. I`ve taught in all-boys schools, all-girls schools, mixed schools, FE and sixth form colleges. This has been at schools that get good results!

As well as A-Level, I`ve taught IB Diploma: at both Standard and Higher Levels (also Mathematical Studies). This has been mainly maths, but also some physics and chemistry. I`ve given intensive revision courses in Standard Level Mathematics, and Higher Level Mathematics, which were very well received. I should also mention that IB Diploma is more demanding than A-level - on both the student and the teacher.

So, whether you need help with your chemistry, physics, or ANY area of maths, I`ve got recent experience teaching all of these. This has been across several exam boards: Edexcel, AQA and OCR.

Among the schools whose students I have recently tutored are: Dame Alice Owen`s School, Enfield County School, Enfield Grammar School, Highlands School, Hockerill Anglo-European College, Princess Helena College, Southgate School, St. Michael`s Catholic Grammar School, The Latymer School, The Royal Masonic School for Girls, and Woodhouse College.

Tutoring Approach:

I`m typically very informal and relaxed, which most students seem to appreciate.

When you come to me, you get to choose what you want help with. Unlike far too many tutors I won`t try to tell you what the lesson should be about, unless this is something you want me to do. In fact, some of my students have been known to ask for (and receive) help in maths, physics and chemistry, all in one session.

  • A-Level or Highers (£30 p.h.)
  • Physics
  • A-Level or Highers (£30 p.h.)

  • Maths

Personal Description:
I am a Physics graduate and trainee Science teacher with over four years of tutoring experience and a brilliant track record.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked at two different Tuition Centres where I offered individual and group tutoring sessions in Mathematics and Physics from Primary to A Level standard. I have covered the vast majority of the exam boards for GCSE and A Level on numerous occasions and I have had the pleasure of helping students achieve their potential.

I am very flexible in my tutoring approach - I tailer my lessons based on what suits YOU.

I am very happy to answer any questions you may have. Please get in touch.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing is to ensure the tutee is comfortable with the approach. I do not have one particular approach but adapt my tutoring sessions in a way to suit the student.

Whereas I understand the importance of exams and will often stress this, I find it more useful to to engage with the tutee in a way which would result in them loving the subject. This will encourage and motivate them to work further.

Personal Description:
My students find me enthusiastic, supportive, cordial and professional. I am responsive, a good listener, able to make complex ideas accessible and exciting, and can balance exploratory, individualised and structured approaches to learning. Ultimately, I believe that curiosity, engagement, and questioning are the keys to being both successful in exams and developing a life-long love of English.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced A level English specialist tutor who has taught in three 'Beacon Status' sixth-form colleges, all of which have been rated 'outstanding' by OFSTED. I have an excellent track-record of results in terms of both 'value-added' and 'raw' grades and am able to inspire and motivate students to attain their potential in English. I have managed an outstanding department of 10 teachers and 850 A level students for four years in a sixth form college in Surrey, introducing new creative and digital methods into daily practice and have also worked at Britain's top state-sector sixth form college in Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in drawing from a wide range of teaching methods to make a student's experience of English varied, fresh and challenging as well as identifying the particular needs of each individual to ensure that the right skills are prioritised and tackled rigorously.
Many students appreciate having a clear direction to learning and I believe in signposting different areas in a focused way - whether the skills involve close reading, constructing a debate, understanding or applying theory, researching contexts, or working on essay techniques and planning past papers.

Personal Description:
My name is Marese, I'm a CELTA qualified English Language Teacher and I live in Glasgow, Scotland. I'm a friendly and outgoing person who loves meeting people from different cultures and from around the world. I love music, photography, architecture, art, cinema, hiking and cycling. I've worked in Germany, England, Ireland and more recently studied and taught English in Korea and Thailand. I am interested in technology and social media and like to keep these skills up to date, especially my online teaching skills. All of my lessons are tailor made to each individuals needs and learning goals, and are really enjoyable too as I like to build a good relationship with my students.

Teaching Experience:

I am a CELTA qualified English language teacher and have worked as a teacher of English in public schools in South Korea for two years. I've also taught English to adults in Germany and to students online (all levels). In addition, I hold a TEFL Certificate in 'Teaching English Online' (2013).

I've previously worked as a tutor with Spanish people on work placements in Scotland. I've organised successful Glasgow based English Language 'Meet Up' Groups. When studying in Thailand, I tutored adults as part of my CELTA teacher training and when I was at Napier University, Scotland, I tutored part time supporting lecturers to teach computer technology and animation.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm enthusiastic and passionate in my approach to teaching, which is reflected in my relationships with students and colleagues, and in the positive feedback I've received from both. I encourage student centred learning and coach and facilitate students to reach their language goals with lessons that are interesting and well planned.

I have a variety of experience working in national and international public and private sector organisations, and this experience would especially benefit teaching teenagers and adults, especially people who are interested in business English, academic English or in professional development. However, I'm delighted to teach students of all levels, backgrounds and age, as I can relate and engage well in online teaching sessions.

During my professional and academic life, I have always followed a rather simple rule: We all have different needs, abilities and aspirations, but they are not necessarily the same shape, size and colour. This way of looking at the world is crucial and is the approach I take when teaching English - students have different language needs and my aim is to meet those needs in a fun and engaging way.

Tutoring Approach:

- Initial consultation with student/parent to discuss individual requirements/barriers to success.
- Tailored tutoring style to suit the unique needs of each student.
- Build up confidence, using constant feedback and praise, ensuring they feel completely at ease with me and comfortable to ask absolutely any questions.
- I produce bespoke homework assignments to complement tuition for all of my students and pride myself on going above and beyond to ensure all of my students succeed.

Personal Description:
I spent two years studying physics at Oxford University then transferred to Lancaster University where I achieved first class results in my first year.

I am aspiring to attend graduate school for mathematics or a mathematically related field.

Having excelled at mathematics in school, achieving several perfect scores in my A-Levels and achieving a Top Gold Award in the British Physics Olympiad, I am confident in my knowledge up to A-Level mathematics and physics and am well equipped to help struggling students.

For students looking to apply to Oxbridge/Imperial/UCL/Warwick (etc.), I am happy to help with STEP/PAT preparation.

Teaching Experience:

I was a mentor for several students during my A-Levels and would also take part in PAT revision classes for Oxford Physics applicants. This involved explaining solutions so that others may learn from them (and also having solutions explained to me).

One of my mentees obtained an A grade in their physics A-level, improving from a C grade, allowing them to pursue a degree in medicine.

Tutoring Approach:

My focus starts with making sure the student has a strong understanding of the underlying theory and how it was discovered/derived. Then we may move onto a variety of problems to solve, gradually moving upwards in complexity and making sure to sample all problem types to ensure we have covered all potential exam questions.

Once the student has covered a topic, we will revisit it and summarise it 2-3 times in the coming months to ensure long term understanding and memorisation. This is in addition to having moved on to the next topic.

I am also well read around maths and physics and have some experience with the current career climate and internship opportunities.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD Candidate at the Glasgow Caledonian University, with Wireless Optical Communication as my area of research. I have earned my Bachelors' and Masters' degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering, and have been a top-performer, academically, all throughout my education. My stronghold is basic as well as advanced Mathematics. I am also well-versed with the core concepts of Electronics and wired/wireless Communication.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students for more than 5 years working part-time whilst I was pursuing my bachelors and masters degree. I have taught young students Maths, Science and English. I have also been catering to the needs of students pursuing higher education, specifically in Electrical and Communications engineering, where I helped them out with core concepts of related subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in active learning, a quality which I try to bestow to my students as well. All students have their own way of understanding concepts, and each takes his/her own time to grasp those concepts. I am very patient with all my students and try to explain things in a manner in which they would easily comprehend. I also encourage my students to take down notes, which I believe is an easier and faster way of learning things.

Personal Description:
I am a First Class Psychology and Sociology graduate from the University of Cambridge (2012-2015).

Teaching Experience:

I undertook a 6 month teaching placement in Port Elizabeth, South Africa at a mixed secondary school in 2012. Here I taught students from ages 12-19 in both English Language & Literature, and Life Orientation.

Since leaving university I have run numerous study technique sessions with students of all ages. In addition, I regularly tutor various students at both A-Level and GCSE in a variety of essay based subjects.

I have also run workshops and seminars at secondary schools, colleges, and universities to teach students how to study more effectively through mastering their mindset.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in study skills and techniques after undergoing a dramatic transformation in how I approached studying myself during my third year of university. After two years of being a low-mid 2i student at Cambridge I changed my entire approach to study through developing a number of study tips/tricks/hacks rooted in the science of Positive Psychology.

Students who often need tutoring are not those lacking in intelligence. For many not reaching their true potential it is their mindset and approach to learning that lets them down.

This is where I come in- I share my story of how in my third year I actually started working fewer hours, stopped getting stressed out, and completely changed my relationship with learning and education.

My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge them to apply these techniques themselves.

Areas I specialise in include:
- Fostering Positive Study Habits
- Eliminating Distractions & Increasing Focus
- Stress Reduction & Redirection
- Mastering Time Management
- Conscious Note Taking
- Perfecting Exam Technique

Personal Description:
I am a dynamic tutor who aims to inspire, stimulate and motivate.

I have three years of tutoring experience in both primary and secondary English. I graduated with a double first in History from Queen Mary, University of London. Since then I have worked in communication and copywriting for two major charities, and am currently a freelance writer and voiceover artist for children's television.

I am academically highly qualified, creative and imaginative, and dedicated to bringing out the very best in all my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have over three years of tutoring experience in primary and secondary English, from five years upwards.

Tutoring Approach:

For me, it is most important that a student feels confident and comfortable as a basis for progressing academically. I aim to put students at ease and help them believe in themselves, ultimately working towards reaching their full potential.

I believe that learning should be fun and enjoyable as well as challenging and thorough.

Personal Description:
I am Dimitra, born in Piraeus, Greece. I am qualified teacher with an enormous passion about teaching and learning, excellent communication skills, ethos, and a love for continuous professional development. I hold a Bachelor degree in History & Archaeology, a master in Psychology of Education and Educational Practice and another master in Applied Human Rights. I have also attended vocational programmes in Special Education and Counselling and I have been trained in Safeguarding.
I am an experienced teacher with 11 years of teaching experience and my students have always acknowledged my commitment and high standards that boost progression and are translated into results.
I am keen to work with pupils of all ages and background and offer everyone the support and necessary help to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching career began back in 2005. I have worked as a private tutor but also in mainstream schools and I have experience from international schools overseas and from Academies in the UK.
I have worked in Greece for 9 years as a Classics and Humanities teacher, preparing students for the national exams for admission to Higher Education. I have taught Latin, Classical Greek, Modern Greek and History.
I have also been employed in two Academies in Sheffield and Doncaster respectively teaching History up to GCSE and I have been mentored by high calibre practitioners with enormous teaching experience.
In addition, I was till recently the Head teacher of the Sheffield Greek School, where I taught Modern Greek up to GCSE and A level to students with various linguistic backgrounds and academic goals.
During my tenure, I have worked with pupils with learning difficulties and hearing impairment.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are highly stimulating and engaging. All the lessons are planned using the constructivist theory and the scaffolding principle where prior knowledge is deployed and used as the foundation to built upon. My lessons are challenging, age appropriate and differentiated to meet the needs of every individual student. Formative assessment and revision are used frequently to ensure any gaps and/or misunderstandings are dealt with appropriately and promptly and students have the time to consolidate the new knowledge. My students are always engaged in the learning process and are encouraged to become independent learners, but also see value in what they are doing. Various assessment strategies are used to ensure progress. Last but not least, my lessons are fun! Even when I use socratic questioning, my students will enjoy their learning and will be looking forward to their next lesson.
