Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor with more than 8 year's experience . I have a real talent in passing exams, So, as a last resort, I hope some of my exam / revision tips can help someone get that extra few marks to move up a grade. I have very much interest in teaching the Maths & Science subjects and other similar subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have around 8 year's of teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very friendly and efficient for those who want to prosper in their studies. I always try to make my lessons mutually interesting, especially for my pupils. If students are not eager to study mathematics at first, I understand that this is due to frustration and lack of knowledge in the subject. I try to create warm and helping environment for pupils. I try to interest and inspire them so that they get enough knowledge and experience and eventually develop confidence and love for mathematics.

Personal Description:
I am the Head of Religious Studies and I have been teaching for eight years on a full-time basis with an abundance of experience relating to GCSE and A-Level Religious Studies. I have delivered four of the A-Level modules offered by CCEA up to A2 Level (Luke's Gospel, Celtic Church, Ethics and Old Testament). All of the students I have tutored have succeeded in achieving A*- B grades at both GCSE and A Level. I can tutor the A-Level modules stated above along with a range of GCSE modules. I am also a Senior Examiner for the AQA exam board.

Teaching Experience:

Our Lady and St. Patrick's College Knock, Kingsway Gardens, Belfast
Full-time (Temporary) Teacher of Religious Studies (2 years)

St. Mary's Christian Brothers' Grammar School, Belfast
Full-time (Permanent) Head of Religious Studies (Current employment)

Tutoring Approach:

I often hold revision classes for small groups of students studying GCSE and A-Level R.E. I tend to work out the revision technique that suits the child best and create mind-maps to faciliate student learning. I have devised my own revision booklets with the key facts on each topic summarised in a manageable way. I work through past paper questions with the students and go through the mark scheme with them to highlight the strengths and areas for development in their work.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a friendly and qualified 1-to-1 tutor with lots of experience, living in South East London.

I've lived and worked in Spain on three separate occasions: I find its culture, history and languages fascinating.

I also teach English as a foreign language, and you couldn't be in a better city to learn English - London is fantastic! Welcome!

Teaching Experience:

I did a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages at Exeter University in 2007, and a CELTA (TEFL) at St Giles College, Brighton in 2005. Since then I've been teaching on and off in the UK and Spain, and completing my Masters degree in Spanish Translation.

I have taught Young Learners of 5+ years, through teenagers and up to adults - the majority of my experience is with teenagers.

My 1-1 students have all passed their GCSE, AS and A2 level exams with B's, A's and A*'s. Moreover, we have built good relationships together and learnt from each other along the way. References can be supplied if you wish.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a creative person, spontaneous yet thoughtful, and I like to tailor my approach on an individual basis. I try to keep my lessons a fair mix of listening, speaking, reading and writing practice though, all with good momentum and interest levels. You tell me what interests you - from One Direction to global warming! - and we'll incorporate it into activities so that you are more engaged with your learning.

My speciality is grammar; helping you overcome any grammar-related fears in foreign languages, to get you confident about your own ability to comprehend how language works and start manipulating it yourself.

I can travel to you, for a slightly higher hourly fee, or you can come to my house. In any case, I look forward to hearing from and working with you!

Personal Description:

Teaching Experience:

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated with a First Class in BSc Mathematics and am currently training to be a Maths teacher, focusing on KS4 and KS5.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently training to be a Secondary Mathematics Teacher. I have experience giving KS3, KS4 and first year undergraduate Maths tuition. I have worked as a Mathematics Outreach Ambassador, working with primary and secondary school students, and running Mathematics workshops and masterclasses.
I also give instrumental and vocal tuition to students of a variety of ages and abilities. I hold an enhanced DBS (new version of enhanced CRB).

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and patient. I have a flexible approach to tutoring, adapting to suit the students way of learning and best address their weaker areas. In my first few lessons I aim to give students tasks that they can understand and complete within the lesson, building their confidence in their abilities. This lays the foundations to progress on to more difficult topics, and develop the students own ability and skills set, so they can begin to tackle new, unfamiliar areas of the topic themselves.

Personal Description:
I have recently semi-retired back to Oxford after two careers: the first in journalism and the second as a teacher and minor academic, having spent the past four years lecturing in English literature at university level. I am, however, a traditionally trained teacher, having qualified at the University of Oxford 20 years ago with the full secondary PGCE in English, with history as my second subject. I can teach all aspects of English and all periods of literature from GCSE level upwards, but undergraduate students may want to know that my academic specialism is in 19th century literature, and my doctoral research was on Dickens. Alongside my tutoring work, I continue to do examining, coursework moderation and consultancy work for the leading exam board in the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' experience, mainly teaching all three varieties of A level English to the specifications of three different awarding bodies, at various colleges of further education. I also have considerable experience of GCSE English (mainly post-16 retakes, also in the FE context) and have taught within a local authority adult education service, as well as at university. I also have several years' prior experience of seeing one-to-one students privately. I have been an examiner for A level English literature since 2000, a coursework moderator for the same since 2009, and am currently a senior examiner for A level English language and literature.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I think I am friendly and approachable, adopting an informal style of session, though I do insist on academic rigour where it is called for, and I have the expertise to back it up. I believe in a collaborative approach, with the full and ongoing involvement of parents, particularly of younger students, and would also expect to liaise by e-mail with the student's English teacher at school. I see the tutor's role as supporting mainstream education, not as something separate from it. I am aways well prepared, and wil go the extra mile by researching material which students have to cover, as well as reading and where appropriate marking students' work, in my own time.

Personal Description:
I am an avid musician and educationalist, with a passion for sharing my interests in music and learning with children and young adults. As a parent and trained Teacher, I can see from different perspectives the different aspects of learning in life, and am keen to foster a love of learning whenever I am involved with a child or young person.

Teaching Experience:

I have 7 years experience working in a Special Needs school working across the 11-19 age range primarily, with much crossover into Primary and Early Years. When my children were at nursery I worked closely with the team to develop their behaviour management and early communication skills, giving me a different range of experiences to call upon. I have also taught private music lessons with great client satisfaction for over 10 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am experienced in adapting my approach to delivery depending on context, having worked in classrooms, with learner orchestras, and in 1:1 settings. Fun and enjoyment should be central to a successful learning experience, and I try to ensure a relaxed approach in sessions facilitates this.

Personal Description:
My name is Shannon, but you can call me Shan! I am 17 years old and currently taking a gap 5 months from A-levels before going to boarding school in September to restart year 12 in the UK. I have a younger sister whom I have spent many many hours with, helping with 'last-minute' homework and projects.
I live with my Mum, and she works full time so I mainly have a house all to myself, so lots of time to study! Currently, I spend my time doing lots of charity work which I have a passion for.

I have a bubbly and friendly nature, and understand how difficult some subjects can be! Trust me, I have been that one in the class who has no idea if the teacher is even speaking the same language as me!! The good news is, I adapted study skills and learnt amazing ways to revise and ta-da... I did really well in my exams!

Teaching Experience:

I taught English in Cambodia during February of 2015.

Friendly chat to start with, to see what are the key areas of difficulty are.

Tutoring Approach:

My main approach is to build confidence in a child so that they believe in their own ability to succeed and have skills to solve problems. A child does not need to know the answers but needs to have strategies to work through problems and solve them. This involves accuracy, perseverence, patience and creativity. There is always more than one method and children are encouraged to find their own way to solve solutions using known methods in addition to learning new methods.

Personal Description:
My name is Jing, I was born in a city close to Beijing. I have lived in the UK since 2001 and I have British citizenship. I attended a UK based university where I attained a "Master Degree" in Business Administration. Whilst living and working in mainland China, I also attended a university where I attained a first degree in electronics. I am a middle aged lady with a wealth of experience. I have held senior management positions in a diverse and wide range of businesses and industries. If you are wanting to learn Mandarin or may be need some help with English / Mandarin translations or consultant to help you with your negotiations when dealing with Chinese business people, I would be pleased to be of service.

Teaching Experience:

I have been very successful working as a "Fee Lance" tutor and operating as a management consultant, where my services have been used in Chinese/English translations and also representing companies on a consultancy basis, when senior English speaking executives were dealing with Chinese business people around the negotiating table. In China I was employed by an electronics manufacturer as a manager, dealing with import & export on a daily basis. In the past I was also privileged to be chosen to teach English Students about China and Chinese culture.

Tutoring Approach:

When teaching mandarin, I prefer a "One on One" tuition basis.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Mathematics Undergraduate at Balliol College, Oxford University.In school I was very keen on extracurricular maths- I achieved a distinction in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round 1. I obviously have experience with the Oxford Mathematics Admissions Test. I am also very happy to teach the IB syllabus. I stay in Oxford throughout the year and am especially available during the summer for those who want to prepare for their November MAT and December Interviews. Otherwise happy to Skype or do online lessons via Tutorhunt .

Extracurricular Interests
Watching and Playing Football, Videogames

Teaching Experience:

I have had experience tutoring GCSE maths and A Level Maths and Further for the last summer in London. I also tutored KS3 students whilst in my sixth form.
I will be most keen to apply as a tutor the learning and teaching techniques that I have found to be effective whilst as a student.

Online Experience:
-Tutored a International Chinese Student applying for maths at Oxford during summer of 2015 via "Teamviewer"(student received offer to read maths at University of Oxford)
-I have had much experience learning online as a student- mostly when I was applying to university myself. I often watched videos such as Khan Academy so I know what a great online learning experience feels like. Even now while at university I regularly use things like MIT opencourseware for video lectures and the slightly more interactive format too to supplement my live classes, tutorials and lectures.
I will be most keen to apply as a tutor the learning and teaching techniques that I have found to be effective whilst as a student.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly and very encouraging. I have had experience giving remedial lessons to younger students falling a little behind at school and also to stronger students so can adapt approach well. One challenge is students who doubt their abilities or are afraid to get a question wrong. I constantly encourage that mistakes are okay, and they shouldn`t be afraid to tackle a difficult problem. I often find that it takes a lot of experimenting with stupid, less fruitful ideas in order to reach a brilliant one. Prompt when stuck and hold belief that it is the journey to solving the problem that is most important than the final answer and most fun of course :) Despite being guilty of not doing this many times in my young mathematical career- It is important to realise that Mathematics is not a spectator sport- much of learning comes from actively solving many problems and having bravery to explore the subject alone sometimes.

Personal Description:
A first class Medical Sciences graduate and qualified teacher, I have over 5 years` experience in teaching/tuition.

Well-versed in most major exam boards, I am able to work successfully with students across all levels of attainment in order to further their understanding of core scientific principles and enhance their exam technique. My position as an assessment specialist with two of the major exam boards has enhanced further my understanding of how credit is awarded in exams - enabling me to not only improve students' subject knowledge, but to improve their approach to exam questions as well.

I take a positive and friendly approach to tuition, and am happy to be flexible in using the methods that best suit the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor since attending university in Exeter, and have helped students to improve on their grade by up to 3 grade boundaries over time.

I taught professionally for two and a half years, training through the prestigious Teach First programme. My progress was judged as outstanding. I was consistently judged good/outstanding, both internally and by Ofsted, and I was a lead teacher in my last role.

Tutoring Approach:

Largely, this will depend on what the student is hoping to achieve. I appreciate that, most often, a student's aim is to achieve a certain grade in an exam. In these cases, I will spend a lot of time working with the student to familiarise them not only with the material for the exam, but with the format of the exam paper, exploring how to approach different types of question and working directly with mark schemes to best understand how credit is awarded.

I am, however, passionate about my subject, and aim to uncover some enthusiasm for the sciences with all my students, through engaging sessions in which we can explore topics in perhaps more detail than is often possible within schools.

Personal Description:
I am a professional, patient, and fun loving person. I have a BSc., MSc., and am just completing a PhD in Psychology. I enjoy reading and writing academic and popular literature and I have a broad knowledge of assessment criteria used by schools and universities.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 3 years now at the undergraduate, postgraduate, and adult learner level. I have taught traditional lectures, seminars, workshops, and practical sessions. I also have experience designing and marking assessments at different levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be an enjoyable but challenging experience. I utilise a mix of paper-based tasks, presentations, and reading. I believe in constantly measuring performance for individuals so they know how they are improving and I also employ an "errorless learning" approach; I don't believe highlighting peoples failures is an effective method of teaching, rather I treat a wrong answer as a learning experience and encourage people to fail often so that they can grow rapidly.

I derive my learning materials from the official syllabus and supplement my own material when I feel a broader knowledge is necessary. I also focus on written and oral communication so that factual knowledge can be effectively translated to exam success.

Personal Description:
I am a 30 year old History and Politics graduate, with ten GCSE's and three A Levels.
I am passionate about education and very keen to help students improve and reach their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have acquired a lot of experience in schools and tutored both small groups and one to one.

I have also tutored privately, for eighteen months. All of the students that I have tutored thus far, have achieved or exceeded their targets.

Tutoring Approach:

My effective approach to tuition has been complimented, by experienced teachers who have observed my sessions. I am happy to adapt to the needs of individual students and work at an appropriate pace. I will tutor primary aged children one to one or in groups of two or three and older students one to one.
I firmly believe that everyone can succeed, with the necessary help and I strive to ensure that all of my students do just that.
