Personal Description:
I graduated from Bristol University in 2009. I have mostly been working as an actor/director/writer in theatre and film since then.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my teaching experience has been with post-graduate actors at GFCA Soho. I have done some tutoring teaching English as a foreign language and have worked with students studying for A-levels and drama school auditions.

Tutoring Approach:

For anyone taking exams, I will give you a thorough and clear understanding of the curriculum and marking criteria; this is really the only way to make sure you'll be able to ace it on the day.

For anyone interested in theatre or film, I can prepare you academically and/or professionally.

Ultimately my approach will be tailored to your own targets, which we will outline before our first session.

Personal Description:
Art and design has been the love of my life since early childhood. Being able to express oneself creatively and with imagination has always been my primary source of independence and happiness. Apart from that, i am also attentive to creative sparks and fires in the people around me, enjoying when the potential is given the chance to be fulfilled. Plus, i am thoughtful and hard working, with a light-hearted and empathic attitude towards people i work with. I am a bit of a connector, a bit of a maven, a bit of a geek and i always wear a sunscreen. I have studied Art and Design in Latvia and in London, have an Interior Design diploma and a degree in Product Design, strong drawing skills, sane knowledge of a range of arts materials, software skills and a spirit for safe experiments.

Teaching Experience:

Sustainable Opportunities Workshop 2011, in collaboration with British Council - designing the workshop and facilitating it.
Private arts tutor for life drawing and modeling, 2007-currently.
Learning Resources Assistant in University of Arts London, advising on materials and software (Adobe CS; Rhino; Solidworks for beginners) 2009-currently.
Arts tutor and group supervisor in Children Summer Camp, ages 6-16. 2007.

Tutoring Approach:

The best tutors in my life have been the strictest ones, with high demands and set standards. I have learned from them well and would aim for the same level of aspiration they have given me. But in addition, my strongest belief is that the best teacher is the one who understands the way his student works and learns and acts accordingly, being an inspirational teacher. Ages 6-99 can all benefit from expression through the different forms of art. First of all I would discuss the needs and desires of stakeholders and form a brief, which would include:
Desired outcomes
Program to reach them
Sourcing materials - what materials are needed
Timetable
Location

Then, we would be set for starting the learning and revealing the wonders of life and ourselves.

Personal Description:
Cambridge-educated tutor | Tuition at KS3, GCSE and A-Level | Support for students applying to Oxford and Cambridge

I have a degree in English from Queens` College, Cambridge, and A-Levels in German, Spanish, English Literature and Drama.

I tutor in:
English literature and language at A-Level, GCSE and KS3
English as a foreign language (to any level)
German and Spanish for beginners/KS3.

I also offer support to students applying to Oxford and Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in teaching people of all ages on a range of different subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

Understanding the needs of the student is my first priority. Everyone is different and has to come at their thoughts and studies in a way which suits them.

I never dictate answers but look to give students the means and confidence to get there themselves. It`s my job to explain concepts, help tackle and understand course texts, create tailored handouts, give guidance in structuring essays and generally offer support wherever I can.

I make constant reference to course specifications to ensure that material covered is relevant and that course requirements are met: students should write essays and enter the exam hall knowing they have the tools to do well.

I also think it's important for students to discuss and develop their ideas in a way which genuinely inspires and engages them in the subject - the basis of the Oxbridge tutorial system.

Given the right focus, guidance and encouragement, I genuinely believe it is possible for any student to do excellently.

Subjects

I went through the GCSE and A-Level courses and know what it takes to do excellently in those exams. The subjects I list are in the traditional qualifications, but I am happy to tailor tuition to other courses, too.

Subjects
  • Spanish
  • 11+ (secondary) (£40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I trained as an actor at Arts Educational schools and have twenty five years experience working as an actor, director and writer. For ten years I worked as an audio director, directing many of the UK's leading actors in recordings of 150 audio books, poetry collections and drama. As a writer I have seen my plays produced in repertory theatre and by small touring companies and have also written for TV's 'The Bill'. I now work regularly as a corporate role-play actor, often using improvisation. I enjoy the range and variety of my work and believe this brings a greater depth of understanding and knowledge to my teaching. I teach young adults aged 16 and over and adults of any age.

Teaching Experience:

I began my career as an actor-teacher, working for small theatre companies touring schools, often leading drama workshops on educational themes. I was also Assistant Lecturer in Contemporary Theatre at the London branch of Boston University, teaching American young adults. I have been teaching private students since 2003, including business people wishing to improve their communication and presentation skills, poets who wish to perform their work live, and corporate trainers seeking voice coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach at my home or travel locally, providing a safe, relaxed and supportive environment in which students can learn practical skills, build their confidence and discover their true ability. Lessons are tailored to meet the specific learning needs of the student, whether they are learning for fun or professional development. I work through voice and elocution techniques and performance skills for presenting.

Subjects
  • Drama
  • A-Level or Highers (£30 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (£30 p.h.)
  • Adult/Casual learner (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a recent UCL maths Msci graduate and I know how to get incredibly high marks on exams. My average mark on my A level maths/further maths was 92%. In a couple of the more interesting modules (FP1, C4), I got 100%. I continued this academic excellence into my undergraduate, my average was 82%, I did the hardest analysis / algebra courses.
Here is what one of my current students says about me:
"Joe has consistently proven to have great knowledge and understanding in all areas of mathematics. So far, my degree has required me to have a strong grasp of analysis, algebra, statistics and mathematical methods, all of which he has taught me in great detail. His enthusiasm for the subject has made our lessons exciting and extremely rewarding, often leaving me mulling over interesting mathematical problems that he has left for me to think about for homework. When I started with Joe, I had just failed my first year at UCL and thanks to his help, I achieved a 2:1 in the retake exams and am on the path to obtaining a first in my subsequent years. Joe has taught me methods that have enabled me to solve complex mathematical problems independently. I have never had a tutor with such a breath of knowledge, empathetic approach and natural ebullience as Joe. I highly recommend him to all students. " Hannah Michaels, 25, UCL mathematics undergraduate.

Tutoring is not a side project for me. It is a vocation I genuinely want to pursue to the fullest extent.
When I look at my achievements, I don't quite believe them: I grew up on a deprived council estate in Wolverhampton, life could have been so different. This is why I have applied for a PGCE; so that I may uplift others.
I am unique in that for a period of my adolescence (GCSE), I was home schooled. I know very well the challenges that home-schooled people face.
I was known as the "Ideas Man" in the maths common room at UCL: two years ago I gave an hour long talk at UCL on quaternion analysis for the The Mathematics Colloquium. I also helped a number of students with their own Colloquium talks. I am currently preparing a series of talks on relativistic fluid mechanics.
In my spare time I answer people's questions on math.stackexchange (my reputation score is currently 223). I also write poetry related to my mathematical interests. Aside from maths. I'm a huge computer games enthusiast (typical maths nerd!) and attend philosophy debates.
Availability:
My timetable is nearly full (12/16 hours of tuition weekly).
I am away from London: 23rd of December until 2nd of January.
Location is at discretion of the client.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring part time while I was studying in February, and I have been a full time tutor since graduation in August.
My maths and physics teachers put me in charge of mentoring AS students during my A levels. (I have three letters from my teachers confirming this, available on request.) Here are quotes from two:

"First rate physicist and mathematician... The tuition and help he has given has been really useful to those to who have received it... I would recommend him without reservation to any other student..." -Mr Ian Cunliffe FE Physics teacher, 2010; Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath campus.
"Joe has read widely around the subject... I can fully recommend Joe for his mathematical expertise as well as his ability to put across his explanations" -Dr A G Williamson FE maths teacher, 2010; Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath campus.
I mentored undergraduates in the maths department at UCL while I was studying; giving lectures on the provided whiteboards.
Five years of maths mentoring experience (10 hours / week) (Including university and college.)
Experience with home schooled students.
Experience with dyslexic students.

I have detailed knowledge of the demands of each specification for Maths and Further Maths A Level (AQA, OCR and Edecxel). I can also teach Maths IB and pre-U.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths lessons can be very daunting, with the teacher often moving on from key methods to difficult questions too quickly. One-to-one tuition is great because I can make sure a student really understands the fundamentals behind concepts, before tackling specific questions.
Rather than teach superficial 'tricks' to get answers, which often backfire in exams, I always give students a genuine grounding in a way of thinking about problems. It's also great that my students can ask the questions they've always wondered about in class, but been too self-conscious to ask.
I am experienced in providing custom-made handouts that cater to the individual needs of my students. The handouts usually cover things that cannot be reasonably tutored during lessons, and novel and instructive ways of solving problems.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a BSc Psychology student at UCL with 2 years experience in private tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

2 years of private 1 on 1 teaching from home.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always been a hard worker with strong ambitions, so this is the approach that I tend to integrate in my teaching style. Learning and regurgitating facts is far less useful than understanding them, and having an understanding of concepts and ideas that surround the discipline will make learning a lot easier when it comes to taking exams.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in English Literature from the University of East Anglia where I also studied Creative Writing.

I am a freelance writer (mostly book reviews and articles on literature for the Guardian) and in 2013 I had my first book published by Transworld: Dedicated to... (a collection of found book-inscriptions which received some very nice national press).

I am currently writing my debut novel.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in 2014. Subjects taught so far have included Shakespeare (Macbeth) and Browning's Porphyria's Lover. (References available on demand). I have a good knowledge of literature and am able to research topics thoroughly and quickly.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe literature is best taught with enthusiasm, thereby making it accessable and less intimidating. Once a basic understanding of the work has been achieved it is easier to explore the more complex themes such as character, imagery, dramatic arc, etc.

Personal Description:
I graduated from UCL with a First in Classics in 2008, and have since worked for Marks and Spencer as a Commercial Manager. I have maintained my interest in the ancient world and languages and have continued to study at Birkbeck. I am now returning to University to complete a PGCE in Classics (2013/2014).

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately since 2012, and have had a range of pupils aged from 11 through to A Level. Although I am just starting my teacher training, I have been observing in a variety of schools for the last six months. I have a detailed understanding of the curriculum for each school year and the GCSE, AS and A Level set texts and the language level required.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an enthusiasm for Classics which I have been told is infectious, and I am a firm believer that learning should be enjoyable. I have studied Latin since the age of 11, and Greek since 16, and have a very thorough knowledge of grammar and syntax in both languages. I am particularly skilled at Unseen Translation and Prose Composition.

I tailor my tuition to my pupil by informally assessing their language ability during our first session. I offer language tuition at any level and have experience of preparing students for University Entrance Exams. I am also well practiced in tutoring Greek to A Level students intending to study Classics at degree level.

Personal Description:
My name is Claudia. I was born in Argentina and have spent half of my life in Spain. I've been living in the UK for 8 years.
I'm passionate about languages and I have a BA in Business Administration and an IH Certificate as Spanish Teacher for Adults accredited by University of Barcelona.
Although my accent is from Spain, I am very aware of the differences between Latin American and Iberian Spanish
I am also a qualified Translator English into Spanish (DipTrans IOL) and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Spanish in London for two years now in private tuitions to all levels.
I have also taught English at Mondragon University in Spain for a year.
I also teach children from pre-school to 11 yrs old in small groups in Hornsey Vale Community Association and St John's Highbury Vale Primary School
I am experienced in preparing students for GCSE Foundation, Higher, AS and A levels.
I also teach in very small groups up to 4 people at a more convenient rate.
Special customized courses for companies in site.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is based on a communicative approach, aiming to develop the fours skills: Listening, Writing, Speaking and Reading.
I like to know my students interests to make the class as engaging as possible, as I believe that if the student enjoy the class it is more likely s/he will learn more, work harder and won't give up learning Spanish.
I also tailor the classes to meet student's needs tackling their weaknesses.
To reinforce learning I usually start with a short recap of the last class and based on student availability I give homework and correct it.

Personal Description:
Hi,
I enjoy teaching and researching. Currently, I am working as a researcher at the university.
My area of expertise includes, Biology, Maths, Chemistry and Pharmacology.
In my quest of higher education currently I am working as a research Scientist in molecular pharmacology, and cell biology. My project is associated with Lister Hospital, Stevenage, UK.

Teaching Experience:

Visiting Lecturer at the university level From last 3 years. Teaching students at the university level theoretically as well as wet lab experiments. I had 6 Nuffield bursary students to teach in the university in last 2 years. All of them are very competent and few of them went to imperial collage, cambridge, oxford and kings for the graduation.

Tutoring Approach:

If a student is not have an interest and intellectual in to the subject, I take it as a challenge. I prefer to correlate the tedious concept of science with the normal day to day life and give a flavor of importance or demand of a particular subject.
Give me an opportunity to introduce myself and I am confident that I will not disappoint you. So far, none of my student left my tuition and stayed with me for longer.

APPROACH TO TUITION

Tailoring tuition to suit the student
The advantage of one-to-one tuition is that I can assess what specific needs a student has, and organise my lessons around those needs. Some students need essay technique help some have a specific set of topics they want to go over others might need an entire course taught to them as they have left school or are being home educated.

Knowing the syllabus
All GCSEs and A Levels follow a national syllabus, and I know them all very well. In my first lesson with any student I will make sure they are aware of the overall requirements of the syllabus, on a topic-by-topic basis. I will always stick to what the student needs to know to pass that particular syllabus I do not needlessly make students learn things they do not need to know.

Digital handouts
In my years of tuition, I have built up a cloud-based digital archive of hundreds of handouts. Say a student is learning about arguments for the existence of God for RS A Level - I have handouts very clearly outlining the Ontological, Teleological and Cosmological arguments and all relevant criticisms. These handouts are a great extra help alongside my teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have thousands of hours of tuition experience, having taught hundreds of students. I have dozens of letters of recommendation. Some of the specific subjects I have taught include:

Government & Politics (Edexcel and OCR)
Cambridge Pre-U Theology & Philosophy
Philosophy A Level (AQA, OCR and Edexcel)
Religious Studies (OCR, AQA and Edexcel) GCSE, A Level
Sociology (AQA) AS and A2
Theology and Religious Studies at degree level (I have helped six different students receive good grades for third year RS dissertations)
Oxbridge applications and interview practice

I have a written reference from a doctor of Philosophy and college chaplain at Cambridge University, as well as an excellent reference from my full-time tutoring placement for the last year.

Extracts from letters of recommendation (all available in full on request):

"Incredibly reliable and professional...James' superior knowledge and passion for his subject resulted in my son gaining both in confidence and ability and led him to succeed in achieving a Distinction grade when his school had predicted a Merit."
Mother of Pre-U student, 2013.

"James's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend James highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"A great source of help to my daughter over the past two years; making smooth preparations for her to retake her AS level, alongside her continuing work towards her A level. He contributed invaluably towards her outstanding AS level pass mark of 100% . For her A2, Olivia received an A."
Mother of Philosophy A Level (AQA) Candidate, 2012/13.

"James was an excellent tutor. He explained complex ideas clearly and tailored his tutoring to suit my son. Importantly, he acted as a strong motivator and made sure rigourous revision notes were made... humourous, friendly and a good natured motivator. My son received an A*".
Mother of GCSE Religious Studies student (OCR), 2012/13.

"He immediately established a very good working relationship with my daughter which encouraged her to really engage with the subject and plan and think about the topics in depth. He helped her with the structure of her essays and how to build up a coherent and well thought out argument...I would highly recommend James as a Philosophy tutor."
Mother of Religious Studies (OCR) student, 2012/13.

"Jame's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend Jame's highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"James was very familiar with the curriculum and both his discussions with my son and the work set were of an appropriate and challenging level, set work was always marked and discussed at the following tutorial. My son received a good Distinction in his exams."
Mother of Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), 2013.

"My daughter was unable to attend school due to illness, and so James was entirely responsible for her preparation. She received a Distinction in her exams. James was a diligent tutor, who managed to convey this difficult subject with a lightness of touch. I know that my daughter enjoyed her lessons enormously, and that she found it easy to learn from James. He not only imparted the necessary knowledge but also inspired her with confidence."
Mother of homeschooled Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), who I taught the entire syllabus to in 2012/13.

"James was brilliant. Despite tutoring my two twin daughters at the same time, he adapted his teaching style to suit both of them differently. He made the whole course much easier for them to understand than they had found at school. Beyond this, he boosted their confidence and increased their essay writing skills. He provided a large amount of digital handouts which they also found useful. Both girls ended up with very high As in all the topics he taught them in."
Mother of twin daughters taught in Religious Studies (OCR) and Philosophy (AQA), 2012/13.

"...James covered far more content than the school had taught in a whole year and to a greater depth and understanding. His knowledge of the syllabus and ability to explain complex philosophical arguments and content, in a way that my daughter could understand, was second to none... put back a confidence in my daughter that had been partly destroyed in this subject due to poor teaching at school. I have never seen my daughter so relaxed and happy after taking an exam than she was after re-taking these two."
Mother of homeschooled candidate in Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2012/13.

Personal Description:
I am married with three grown up children, several chickens and a dog.
I am a regular churchgoer, a supporter of Newcastle United (I know...) and a friendly and outgoing person.
I drive my fully restored Morris Minor whenever I can, leaving the modern car for my wife and daughter. Apart from that I am quite normal!

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher of RE at secondary level, being Head of RE and SMSC at a local non selective school. As such I am well used to teaching and supporting students of all abilities and with all kinds of needs and baggage.
In addition to teaching I mark GCSE papers for the AQA exam board which gives me a significant insight into examination requirements and technique. My latest school results were an almost 25% A* to A pass rate from a non selective cohort of over 200 students.
Before entering the teaching profession I spent 20 years in Christian youth ministry, which does not colour my tutoring, but does give me a uniquely thorough knowledge of Christianity in particular.

Tutoring Approach:

I am relaxed and friendly, able to get alongside even the most reluctant of students and persuade them to learn.
I believe enjoyment and relevance are the key attractions to students, qualities often perceived to be lacking in the subject. I like to be topical and humorous, whilst also being organised and firm in my approach.

Subjects
  • Religious Studies
  • 11+ (secondary) (£25 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from the University of Warwick with a B.A. in politics. I have an excellent academic record; I received firsts in three of the eight modules that made up my degree, my second year work was praised for its excellence by the examinations board and my contributions to seminars were praised by lecturers. Prior to this I completed A-levels in economics, history and politics (all at grade A) at Pate's Grammar School. I have a comprehensive knowledge of and passion for the subject area; I have had work experience with the BBC's Sunday Politics and am the author the "Young Citizens Agenda for the UK".

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience assisting younger family members with GCSE and A-level work. I was the person to come to at school for A-level politics advice.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work to understand the specific needs of the individual tutee. This will involve closely examining the syllabus of the specific course which they are undertaking set against what they need to do to produce work that will get into the better grade boundaries. This will require working with the tutee to understand their own learning style so they are able to do this. But most importantly I hope to generate an genuine enthusiasm for politics and current affairs.

Subjects

  • A-Level or Highers (£15 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (£15 p.h.)
