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 an elite tutor with a Masters Degree in English Literature from the University of Cambridge. I specialise in English and Drama, and I also speak Italian to near fluency. I studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and I am now a full time theatre director, working freelance. I have worked on shows in the West End, at the National Theatre and the Almeida Theatre among others.

I also have specialist experience of Oxbridge admissions and drama school applications.

My literature specialties are Shakespeare, American literature and all literature of the last thirty years.

Teaching Experience:

I have now been tutoring consistently for over seven years. Every one of my students has achieved the highest possible grade in the subjects in which I have tutored them.

Testimonies from previous students:

'We could never have done it without Tom'

'Tom was everything we could have asked for in a tutor. Helpful, reliable and seemed to gel immediately with our son'

'Tom was able to sort out many difficult areas in the syllabus.
Through the course of the lessons I gained the confidence and clarity needed for a very important exam.
I highly recommend Tom as he is a patient and kind teacher that I believe can provide help to any student struggling with drama.'

I worked as a volunteer teacher at an international school in Swaziland for three months, running drama classes and English classes. I also coached the school rugby team. In the drama classes I focused very much on basic dramatic skills through games and exercises, while the English classes were much more specific, focusing on Shakespeare texts and working in particular on Graham Swift's 'Waterland', which was a set text for the IB exam that year. I am currently affiliated with the National Youth Theatre as well as several drama schools; I work with educational projects in theatres and drama schools around London, working closely and extensively with students and young people.

Tutoring Approach:

When I tutor I like to be very open and conversational with the student. What is especially important is that the student comes away with the belief not that they have been dictated to, but that they have discovered things for themselves. I ask a lot of questions, guiding the student towards a conclusion rather than imposing it directly. This makes for a very interactive and exciting experience, an experience that contrasts perfectly with the proscriptive, curricular methods of traditional schoolteaching.

My approach also enables me to adapt to the needs of each individual student, and to have conversations both with them and with their parents. I recognise that each tutee has specific, unique needs, and I am totally prepared to adjust my style to such needs.

Personal Description:
For 25 years of work in education I've gained rich experience which I want to share with those who need my guidance and assistance.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching has always been my passion and perhaps, my life mission.

Personal Description:
I am a 33 year old male living in Worcester, teaching in Worcestershire. I like sports and keeping active. I have done two Camp Americas in my early twenties, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This led me eventually onto doing a TEFL course where I taught English in China. Now, I have also been a Primary School teacher working in Worcestershire.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching now in the UK for two years in Primary Schools across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. I have taught across Years 2,3,4,5 and 6. My method of teaching brings in fun for the children as well as learning something easily. My aim is to always get the best out of the children I am teaching.
I have taught in China for 9 months previously where I was responsible for teaching 14 children and adults at different times. I was also given the responsibilities of teaching 1-2-1 whilst out there. This I thoroughly enjoyed. From this, I can speak basic Mandarin.
Tutoring wise, I have taught 7 year old children Literacy to Year 7 entrance exams and I am looking at taking on more children or adults to tutor this year Academic year.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to travel to tutor or have people come to my house to be tutored. I will use all sorts of resources to help the person learn. I believe that enjoying learning and doing different tasks always helps people learn.

Personal Description:
Ciao, I'm a native Italian speaker graduated with honors in Linguistics (February 2013) and in Anthropology (2007). During University, I worked and travelled around Europe, Centre and South America further developing my language skills (Spanish, Portuguese and American native languages). I currently live in London to improve my English and enter a post-graduation course in Linguistics.
I'm passionate about other cultures and the interaction between people from different cultural backgrounds. I love learning other languages, travelling, reading books and drawing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 4 years and worked as an Italian teacher for foreigners, all levels and all types of courses (long and short course, one-to-one lessons, children, adults).

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to understand the students' needs and adjust the working materials to the Second Language level, the personality, the age and the mother tongue of each student. Also, discussing everyday life topics and subjects like culture, cinema, arts, sports and gastronomy are a pivotal part of my teaching approach.

Personal Description:
Hi there,

I'm Alan, I'm an Engineering manager with Siemens, I'm married and live in a lovely part of the Hampshire countryside.

Apart from work, I spend a lot of time cycling and walking the nearby parks and hills.

Teaching Experience:

I've been tutoring for 5 years now, and I am trained as a trainer through work, so I've taught both adults and students. I used to run a training team as part of my last job, and understand a lot about different teaching and learning styles.

Since tutoring I've mostly taught 16 and upwards, physics and maths, and occasionally the odd other question!

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to make the teaching as simple as possible, and let the student work it out themselves with me providing guidance where need be. Physics, and maths in particular, can be daunting - many people just want to get a good grade and move on, which I understand completely, I'm not going to make you love the subjects but help you get to where you want to be.

Personal Description:
Hi, my names Tom and I am a history graduate from the University of York,
I have loved history all of my life and I really want to pass that on to other people, which is why I would love to be a tutor,
I am really comfortable tutoring history, having attained an A* at GCSE, an A at A Level and a 2:1 BA degree at the University of York and I know that I am able enough to do a very good job,
Spanish was another subject that I enjoyed and which I am also really comfortable tutoring, having attained an A* at GCSE and having previously taught Spanish in a school in York,
I have a CRB Check available, which was completed before working at the aforementioned school in York.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Spanish voluntarily at Tang Hall Primary School, York as part of the University of York's Project Babylon,
Besides that I am quite inexperienced, but I am confident that I would be a good tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would try to make the tutoring as interesting as possible by incorporating a range of activities as well as using the subject's textbooks and relevant materials,
In particular, I believe that flash cards work really well, therefore I would create flashcards with the student, before revising using them.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced ESL tutor having spent time teaching all levels and abilities. I am friendly, easy to work with and able to tailor my lessons to suit any needs. Beyond ESL I have a history of working with vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals throughout Sheffield.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in Ukraine, Spain and summer schools in London and have been teaching for approximately three years. I graduated with the CELTA certificate from Sheffield University.

Tutoring Approach:

I am warm, friendly and informal. I base my teaching on the premise that for effective learning to take place, the environment must be one in which the student feels relaxed and not worried about making mistakes, allowing questions to asked freely and to encourage them to think for themselves.

Personal Description:
I'm a professional musician living and working in and around Caernarfon.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught for more than 5 years, both piano and guitar to a wide range of students.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to give students not only the technical ability to play music but also the understanding of what they're playing through moderate and relevant music theory. In my experience this brings a higher appreciation of music and even if you're not to become a professional musician you will still highly benefit from my lessons not only by learning a specific instrument but also through broadening your musical culture.

Personal Description:
I am currently doing a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Reading. I finished my Masters in July 2015 and received a First Class. Have tutored several people throughout my time at university, ranging from KS2 to third year university Maths students, including someone studying for their PGCE numeracy test.

Teaching Experience:

Have tutored several people throughout my time at university, ranging from KS2 to third year university maths students, including someone studying for their PGCE numeracy test.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very comforting and relaxed approach to tutoring. Too many students are not reaching their full potential because they are intimidated by the subject, and so can't break it down into logical steps. Tutoring styles should be dynamic and flexible, and for students who are already excelling in subjects, you should push them past the level they are at currently at and make them strive for excellence.

Personal Description:
I completed my PhD in History of Art at University College London (UCL) in 2013. I have published my research in a number of academic journals and edited book collections, and I am a practicing artist, permently based in Hulme, Manchester.

I am currently a Society Research Fellow at Cornell University Society for the Humanities (USA) for the academic year 2016-17, and will therefore only be available for Skype appointments until the end of July 2017.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully trained secondary school teacher, specialising in Art & Design and Photography at KS3, KS4 & KS5. I have 9 years teaching experience, including working as a specialist Learning Support Teacher, and in Special Needs schools catering for children and young adults with a range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple disabilities.

I have particular expertise in studio practice (art and design), digital and darkroom photography (theory, history and practice), literacy, social and vocational skills, as well as History of Art, Anthropology and History of Medicine at undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at undergraduate level, having taught gallery-based first year History of Art courses, for University College London's History of Art Department, and on the History of Art degree programme at the University of Manchester.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a one-to-one, flexible approach to learning and teaching, which first establishes the needs and goals of the student, and then sets out clearly structured strategies for achieving these goals. These may be results-focused when preparing for exams, or aimed at developing a broader understanding of a subject area, depending upon the student's own priorities. I am happy to work with any course materials the student may provide, and I am familiar with all current GCSE and A Level syllabuses. I am able to guide both GCSE and A Level students through their studies, offering consistent, dedicated 1-2-1 tuition for the full term of the course. I can also provide practical tuition for students who are preparing their art portfolios for University submission, and can offer assistance with UCAS forms and references for students who undertake long-term A Level tuition with me.

Tutoring may take place at the student's home, or at my art studio in central Manchester, where I can provide a range of art materials and resources by prior arrangement, for more intensive practical art sessions. Please note that I can travel within 20 miles of central Manchester based on the fee structure quoted below, travelling further will incur a small additional fuel fee.

I have had recent successes with my private students, one of whom attended one-to-one sessions at my Manchester studio for 8 weeks and improved her predicted GCSE Art result of a B by two grades, achieving an A* in her final art exam. My most recent undergraduate student also attained a First overall in her History of Art degree, achieving a high score of 78 on her dissertation project, with intensive tutorial support conducted via Skype.

*Please note that due to the time-intensive nature of undergraduate level tutoring, I am only able to take on a maximum of three undergraduate tutees at any given time. Please see below for my current availability for tutoring at this level.*

I am currently tutoring ONE undergraduate student.

University Undergraduate Level:

"I wanted a tutor to give me help and advice on my undergraduate history of art dissertation. I needed reassurance that what I was writing was okay and some one to proof read and give me their opinion on my arguments. Gemma was brilliant, she gave me the confidence that I needed to keep going with my dissertation by reassuring me that I was on the right track. She discussed my ideas with me in detail, proof read all of my work and suggested and sourced articles that I might want to have a look at. I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a First in History of Art and Media and I know that I owe Gemma a huge thank you for the support she gave me on the way to achieving this."

Personal Description:
I am a practicing artist and tutor specialising in Oil Painting and Drawing, as well as Watercolour, Pastels, Acrylics, Mixed Media, Collage and Printmaking.

My work involves mainly painting using oils and my interests lie in nature as subject matter, depicting natural form such as flora and fauna. My work also examines the relationship between people and nature and how we interact with the natural world surrounding us.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching adults in an informal setting for various learning providers including the Workers' Educational Association for 9 years. I also teach regular painting workshops based at my studio. Although I have experience in teaching a variety of crafts such as sewing, textiles and jewellery making my main area of expertise is Art, Drawing and Painting.
I have studied various painting techniques and hold regular workshops based on a variety of styles and approaches.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in creating a safe and welcoming learning environment for students in order to enable development of knowledge and skills in a relaxed manner. Much emphasis is placed on confidence building through gradual skill development and nuturing of individual artistic style and voice. I am a big believer in tailored learning and am happy to work closely with students in order to help with improvement of very specific skills.

I am a very practical and techniques based art tutor, therefore if you are looking for help with the improvement of drawing skills and how to achieve well composed finished paintings, I can help.

Personal Description:
Semi-retired, experienced teacher who enjoys developing students as independent thinkers. Passionate about supporting people in reaching their goals. Patient and supportive. Current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching KS3 and KS4 Maths and Science in secondary schools; returning to teaching after working in industry where I extended my experience and skills in developing people to attain their personal and professional goals. Passionate about developing students to reach their maximum potential - I have experience in teaching, mentoring and supporting students across all abilities. Previous experience tutoring students in maths at both primary and secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether pre-GSCE and wanting to increase skills and confidence in maths, or working towards a GCSE and wanting to secure a higher grade - my approach is to understand the student as a learner to identify potential barriers to their understanding, and then building skills through practice to embed learning. I focus this within the context of what the student wants to achieve - the reason why they have sought-out help from a maths tutor.
