Personal Description:
Highly motivated physics Tutor.
Teaching experience accumulated by preparing more than 40 students for A-Level exams.

Teaching Experience:

My name is Anton. I have master`s degree in Physics from University of New Hampshire. Besides my background as researcher I have four years of experience as a London based tutor. I primary teach A-level physics and most of my students were taking OCR, AQA, or Edexcel exams. I occasionally teach GCSE and University level subjects, such as Mechanics, Electrodynamics, and Quantum Mechanics. Currently I teach part-time in a private school.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is flexible. Usually I easy detect weak spots in students understanding and this gives me chance to focus on the most relevant topics for a particular student. I carefully prepare myself for each session, and my goal is to make the student involved in the lesson not just leaving him to listen to me. In my opinion the Math involved in A-Level physics is not hard at all, and many students that are good in Math think they can handle physics relatively easy, but this is most of the time not true. I apply extra effort, in my lessons to make sure that student understands the physics concepts not just memorizing facts. My observation is that if the student goal is to achieve an A grade it requires at least two hours of tutoring per week throughout the academic year, of course sometimes one hour is Okay, and some ambitious student ask for more than two hours per week. In any case it will give me great pleasure to help you improve your knowledge and make you feel the beauty of PHYSICS.

If you have any questions please let me know.
Good luck,
Anton

My training revolves around clarification, scepticism and individuality. All training is time managed to ensure the student gets the most out of their lessons. We begin with a clear set objective and make sure the student has in mind the goal of every exercise undertaken. Rather than teach a list of techniques, I actively engage all students to get the most out of their individual strengths and I encourage them to look critically at what will work best for them. I promote a self-coaching concept for more efficient skill retention.

Personal Description:
I am a tutor of both Chinese Mandarin and Cantonese. I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and focused professional with exceptional organisational skills. I am from China, but have lived in England for 11 years. I am fluent in English and have English language qualifications.

I worked for Barclays in UK for six year but I much prefer teaching. I find it very rewarding when I see my students learn and grow with my help. This is why I now work full-time as a private tutor.

I am currently teaching several students. They give me great feedback and are very satisfied with the service I offer.

I have worked as an interpreter and translator. I have a UK masters degree in International Business Communication. While working at Barclays I worked in Correspondence and often interpreted

Teaching Experience:

I have taught both grown-ups and kids, one-to-one and in a group.

If you are going to or doing business with Chinese:
I have experience of teaching groups of senior business people in the office. I have been giving great feedback. For example, "I have gained lots of confidence to speak Chinese when I travel to China for business. Liwen is a really encouraging tutor and I have made great progress in a short space of time."

I also have one-to-one lessons with students who are doing business with Chinese or travelling to China frequently.

If you are planning to travel to China for a holiday:
Few of my students learned Chinese before they went to China for holiday. They were very satisfied after my lessons. "Liwen is professional, organised, and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who would like to learn or improve their Chinese. "

If you are parents and wanted your children to learn Chinese:
I have students between 3-7 years old. They really enjoy my lessons. As a mum myself, I understand the need of children.
I am also teaching in the secondary school. There are many enthusiastic students in the class.

More:
I have both Cantonese and Mandarin adult students.

I am very warm, patient, understanding and a great listener.

I have invested in my teaching materials and have some great stuff to help you learn.

I am flexible and can offer lessons on subject matters of interest to the student.

I have taught students who have very different reasons for wanting to learn Mandarin or Cantonese. Some because they have Chinese relations, some because they have a general interest in China. In all cases I have been able to meet my student's needs and they have been very satisfied with what my lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think everyone has different learning styles. My aim is to understand the different needs of my students and provide the best teaching methods for them, so they will get the most from my lessons. As I have been in England for over 11 years, I have a deep understanding of the cultural differences between west and east.

I like to share my own personal experiences with my students in order to illuminate a subject.

I make lessons enjoyable and have designed some games and exercises.

I am very passionate about teaching Chinese and love to see my students progress.

Personal Description:
My name is Jessica and I am a 27 year old tutor from Brixton, South London. I have grown up with a great education from both schooling and tutors, and aim to keep up this high standard in my teaching. My secondary school, Heathfield Private Girls in Pinner, was a great starter for me and showed me a wide variety of effective teaching methods in all areas of education. When specialising at Woodhouse College in English, Drama, Biology and French I had some of the most inspiring and creative teachers who pushed me to a level I did not know I could achieve. As a result I had a firm foundation for my English and Drama Bachelor of the Arts at the University of Birmingham which made the course all the more enjoyable. I will be studying my Masters in October at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Teaching Experience:

My most recent pupil was retaking his A-Level drama exam during his gap year. By working together for 6 week, we managed to bring his grade up from a U to a B, allowing him the chance of a university placement. Other pupils have ranged in age and ability from first years of GCSE to children for homework help. My mother is and has always been a French teacher, so from a young age I was helping to look after and share responsibility for her classes. This included an after-school French club for children from the age of 4 to 11 years called Jeux D'Enfants and also helping organise and plan some private lessons. At College and University I tutored the younger siblings of my close friends for their 11+ and GCSE and also held weekly Shakespeare study groups for my course. I have recently decided to become a teaching assistant for a secondary school in North London and am excited to tutor once more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TESTIMONIALS
I was more than fortunate to come across Jessica's profile back in April 2012.

From the moment I sent her my initial email, there was both an element of professionalism and caring. The amount of effort and detail she put into my 12 lesson's between April and late May was second to none.
In terms of what Jess brought to my lesson's (We looked at two play's for my written exam. Lysistrata and A Comedy of Errors) she had a lot of material on the latter having studied it at school. From character profiles to stage description's she had an extensive amount of notes, chart and diagrams as well as an understanding of the play and exam. As for lysistratta, this was a play she had never read, by my first lessons she had not only read it but had started to plan out potential lesson planners, as the weeks went by the material and effort she put into each lesson continue. During lesson's I found that she had a very cool and relaxed attitude. She's still young and has an understanding of not only the subject but also how a-levels can effect students and how to best deal with this pressure.

In the end however it's all about the result I suppose. In my last exam (Unit 4 theatre studies) I got under 20% the year before. My finale grade fell from B to D. After my lesson's with Jessica I got 78% and my grade jump back up to B. Added to my A and B in my two other subject I was accepted to the university of Southampton, something I couldn't have imagine a year prior.

Jessica had a huge part to play in this and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jessica has been tutoring my 14 year old son in English for the last academic term. She is an enthusiastic teacher who has really helped engage him in the subject. Her knowledge of drama is a real bonus.

My son's grades have improved noticeably this term and he is much more confident in his lessons at school. I would thoroughly recommend her.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that no one pupil is the same, so it is impossible to define a teaching method as it must be adapted to the needs of the student. From experience of being tutored myself, I know how frustrating it can be to be taught in a way that doesn't suit your thinking, so with each pupil I ask them how they learn and absorb information best. As a result I spend the first lesson going over what the pupil does not understand, and why, thus gaining an comprehension of how to explain it better. I also like to push the student to think beyond their boundaries, or the boundaries necessary to simply get the grade, as this is how exceptional thinking and a sense of achievement come about.

Personal Description:
I began tutoring during my chemistry study, which I finished with a Master's of Science in Chemistry (first class degree) and a PhD in Biochemistry (first class degree). I have successfully tutored over seventy A-level students in twelve years and have helped graduate and undergraduate students at university. One of my pupils was a medicine student, who said after my lesson: "I did not know chemistry is so easy".
I am familiar with the special requirements of the GAMSAT exam and have expert knowledge in biochemistry, microbiology and molecular biology.
As a fifty year old German citizen, I have lived in England for thirteen years. Tutoring is my main profession now.

Teaching Experience:

Twelve years of experience as a Chemistry Tutor enable me to help students to accelerate their understanding of Chemistry and to archive their full potential. Based on a thorough assessment a tutoring plan is developed to fill in gaps and to build up a solid foundation of knowledge.

I have successfully tutored students for their A-level, university and GAMSAT exams and I am happy to provide references. I have been with a well known tutor agency for several years and I am fully CRB checked.

I have worked for 18 years in high profile labs in scientific research all over the world including Tόbingen (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Paris (France), Atlanta (USA), Vancouver (Canada), Cambridge (UK) and Leicester (UK).
During this time I have taught undergraduate university students and have supervised Masters and PhD students. My scientific expertise includes Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular biology, Protein chemistry, Chemical Analytic and Genetic Engineering.

Testimonials:

"Thank you so much for your help this year. My understanding has improved immensely and my confidence has also greatly benefited. I can now enjoy chemistry without the confusion and stress, even the exams have become enjoyable!"
Gabrielle Christie

"You are a really good teacher and explain things very well." Rakhi Bharadia

"I like the way you teach. You do not spoon fed, but help me to find the solution on my own." Joe F.

"I can't thank you enough for the tuition you gave to me - it was invaluable." Lydia Dewis

"You have helped me a lot when it was really needed." Suhrud Banhatti.

"I wanted to thank you for your help and let you know that I got into my
first choice university" Amandeep Kang.

"I wouldn't have been able to get the A* without your help." Sanjeev Braich

"I got my GAMSAT results the other day and scored an average of 63 (which is in the top 15% of the country)!! Thanks so much for your help" Roshan Sing Rupra

Tutoring Approach:

Whenever I get a new client I begin with a thorough assessment: What kind of person is he or she, what basic knowledge is present and what are the main problem areas? Then a tutoring plan is suggested to reach the goal in a reasonable time frame.

My tutoring lessons are individually tailored to the needs of the student and designed to be entertaining but also challenging. The interview style of the session keeps the tutee focused and engaged. I incorporate examples of daily life and draw comparisons with situations from sports and hobbies. In my last assignment, we even did some small chemistry experiments (no worries parents - only harmless ones - the kitchen did not blow up!).

Besides improving their learning strategies, I ensure my students are well prepared for exams by practicing past papers and using official mark schemes. However my emphasis lies on building up a solid foundation of knowledge and the skills of applying it. I am familiar with the four main exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR A and B), but might add additional information, if this helps with the understanding. Homework of around 30 min is given between sessions to practice and deepen the new knowledge.

I give my best to make the teaching interesting and enjoyable, which motivates him or her to learn. I understand that at the beginning there might be resentment towards the subject. However there has to be a basic willingness to learn. If I do not feel the openness at least to try, I reserve myself the right to decline the assignment.

Nevertheless I have a lot of patience and enthusiasm, which let me usually get along very well with my students. I hope at the end of my tuition I can quote you saying "I did not know chemistry is so easy".

Additional information: travel costs up to 5 miles distance are included in my fess. For distances of 5 - 10 miles add £4, for 10 - 20 miles add £8 to the hourly charges. I do not tutor at my home, but also offer online tuition.

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old mum and I have a Master's Degree in English Studies/ English Linguistics, History and Economic Sciences. I graduated in 2010 in Germany. Born in Poland and growing up in Germany I am bilingual in Polish and German and also fluent in English since I have lived in Northern Ireland since 2007. I am very interested in languages and linguistics and would like to use this knowledge to help others, especially children.

Teaching Experience:

I used to give private English lessons to a student aged 11-12 in Germany when I was a student myself. Within weeks his grades started to improve and thus after a few months he did not need any more tutoring.
Apart from this one I do not have any teaching experience, however, I was an assistant manager in a restaurant in my previous job through which I gained a lot of confidence being in a leading/ teaching position.

Tutoring Approach:

Because of my own interest in languages and linguistics I would like to work as a language teacher and fascinate and inspire others to learn different languages or simply help them to improve their language skills. My personal background as well as my degree provide an excellent basis for this.

Teaching Experience:

Secondary Maths Teacher
Renfrewshire Council
August 2013 - Present

Bucksburn Academy, Aberdeen
January 2013 - August 2013

In order to further my career and experience I have taken a role in Aberdeen as a Secondary Maths Teacher. As part of my role I have:

• Taught National 4 and 5 and level 3 and 5 of CfE (Curriculum for Excellence)
• Taken a General Level class, previously unable to gain a General Grade and helped them achieve this

Secondary Maths Teacher
Saint Benedict's High School, Glasgow
August 2011 - December 2012

Whilst teaching at St Benedicts I was able to achieve an excellent understanding of the curriculum. I was given the tools to excel in many areas of teaching and and achieved the following:
• Gained knowledge of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE), Standard Grade and Higher course. This allowed me to articulate between the courses, as well as allowing me more time to focus on delivery.
• Created ICT resources to assist learning and teaching for CfE Level 2 and 3, Standard Grade Credit & General/Foundation, Intermediate1/2.
• Attended Secondary Mathematics Conference in Stirling University on 3rd March 2012 which was arranged by the Scottish Mathematical Council. It was extremely beneficial for me as it allowed me to be open to new ideas including active learning, cooperative learning, and differentiation
• Created ICT resources for my S3 Credit class which allowed them to have a better understanding of topics such as; proportion and simultaneous equations.
• I was involved in the development of curriculum for Level 3 which included resources used for a specific outcome, ICT and web resources. This also included identifying the objectives of specific outcomes.

I was involved in following activities :-

• BP Enterprise Road Show, Intermediate Maths Challenge
• Olympic Stadium Visit-I organised and facilitated S5 pupils' Olympic Stadium visit for a study experience.
• In August I started a Maths Club which ran every Tuesday at lunchtime.

Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Andrew, I am in my early 50's and taught in private schools for 15 years. I then left education for change of lifestyle and other personal reasons. I have been married for over 25 years and have 2 daughters 24 and 22. I am a committed christian and as such the integrity of the teacher student relationship is very important to me; I would always go the extra mile to see that the student achieves their aims.

I have a current DBS. Loads of references available from Senior teachers and Deputy Headmasters past and present. (Present Headmasters are not the Heads for which I worked).

Teaching Experience:

Repton Prep School 1992 - 2006, Maths, ICT to year 8. Head of ICT.

Manor House School 2006-2007, Maths and ICT to GCSE. Head of ICT.

Private tutor, 3 years, A level (not statistics - sorry), GCSE and Y6 SAT's, Entrance Exams.

I have also coached football, hockey and cricket so I have a solid foundation in motivating students.

Tutoring Approach:

Motivational, inspirational, encouraging. All things are possible with a good attitude. A can do approach. I do NOT subscribe to the "we don't do it like that mentality" , if there is a better way of doing something then I'm positive about new methods.
For example, when my daughters were learning their tables I wrote my own simple spreadsheet to enable tables practice on a table by table random basis. This is a completely unashamedly a drill system that produces results. Easily possible to learn all tables to 12 within a month if sufficient time is invested, it is also an enjoyable process that 99% of the children that I taught enjoyed, I used the spreadsheet extensively in the schools at which I taught. Infinitely extendable for the brightest to 13, 14, 15 20x tables; likewise can be simplified to 2x and 3x for those that need more time. Also programmable to practise number bonds with any number of digits.

I have also developed the spreadsheet to enable learning of vocabulaire francais.

Personal Description:
A first year Oxford Double Degree History student and double academic and music scholar. I was taught music at the Royal College of Music for over a decade. I am hard working, diligent and will always put my students first.

Teaching Experience:

Experience mainly tutoring younger children, but have done small ad-hoc pro bono tutoring sessions for older children. I specialise in both English and History tutoring, and I can tutor any book or any period for you child. Maths I will be willing to tutor up to GCSE at the most, given the board, and my music and sociology tutoring information can be provided at further request.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise at being able to tutor online: I feel this means students can maintain studying in an environment they feel comfortable in. Another benefit is that I can document all tutoring sessions - part of me services mean that I will copy up transcripts of all the sessions for both you and your child - this means you do not need to worry about sessions being missed. To ensure you get the most out of my time, I offer my services in blocks of 5 or 10: this means that I can thoroughly cover subjects. For example, if you require emergency tutoring with a book, 5 sessions would enable me to efficiently cram topics, whilst 10 would enable me to go through this more thoroughly with you or your child. How I tailor your blocks of 5 or 10 can be discussed between both you, me, and your child. For documentation purposes, I believe typing during the online sessions can be maximally beneficial: both the child can see what i'm writing, whilst you as the parents can see exactly what is being discussed. However, if you would like me to use voice calling as well as video calling, this is no problem either.

Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old native German, moved to Northumberland in 2012 to live here with my family and our little dachshund. After my A-Level (including German and English) I have made an apprenticeship as a Travel Agent, as travelling is one of my passions. The last 4 years before moving here I have been working as a Sales and Marketing Manager in the music industry, as music is another passion of mine. So when I moved here, I started giving guitar lessons and German lessons and I really enjoy both. I love to teach my language to people and have experience in teaching both children and adults.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching private students one-to-one, beginning from 6 years up to 60 years old. Some of them are beginners, others prepare for their GCSE or A-Level. I have been assisting in schools from nursery to A-Level and know the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are tailored to your needs and full of fun. I am very patient and encouraging as I know how hard the German language can appear. Everybody learns in a different way and I am very flexible to adjust to yours to support your progress and make you a confident German speaker. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or if you are already learning German, I want to help you improving your skills easily.

Personal Description:
My name is Simon. I am 36 years old. I enjoy teaching and public speaking. I respond well to challenges and like problem-solving.
I really enjoy puzzles, such as Sudoku.
I love helping people to learn, whether this is to learn to in English or Urdu (a language I myself have learnt)

Teaching Experience:

I have many years of voluntary work experience in teaching English to children and adults whose first language is not English and also I have experience in teaching Basic Urdu to a few friends. I have completed a course in accelerated learning methods.
As I too have learnt a language I do understand the challenges people have when learning a language. This helps me in my teaching style and methods.
I believe that learning should be enjoyable.
I have recently completed a course for students of English and Urdu.
I am now looking for my tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is that learning needs to be fun and enjoyable. I did not enjoy school because of the classroom environment so I want my tutoring to be different. I aim to adapt my teaching to the persons individual needs.
