Personal Description:
I am a working actor and a recent Graduate of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Before going to drama school I went to The University of Nottingham where I achieved a first class degree in English Language and Literature. I am self-motivated, enthusiastic and passionate about Drama and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently worked as a Maths and English tutor with Explore learning. I taught Maths and English to children aged 4 - 14 of various abilities. I received training in the National Curriculum as well as current tutoring methods. I have a particular strength in preparing students for 11+ exams.

In Bristol I assisted on and led various Drama workshops including; introduction to Shakespeare, confidence building and audition technique.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and enthusiastic with a proven record of working well with children. I believe that every child can benefit from one-on-one tuition; whether they need extra help with a subject they are struggling with or they would relish the challenge of extension work. Private tuition can give them the extra time they need to let difficult ideas settle and to encourage them to ask questions and push themselves further. Above all I will try to make every session fun, relaxed and positive. This is not 'school' but a opportunity to bring their learning to life.

Personal Description:
I am a full time professional online physics tutor and an excellent physics communicator. I have the ability, understanding and resources to get the best out of students for their GCSEs, A levels and undergraduate degrees. I am a fully qualified, DBS checked, physics teacher with nine years teaching and tuition experience across all ages and abilities. Working as an examiner for the major exam boards in the UK has given me a detailed understanding of examination requirements, I extend this insight to my students, giving them not only the required knowledge for their exams but also the very best exam technique. I have just been awarded a Ph.D. in Physics, this involved producing cutting edge research for future solar technology, this work helps me to inspire my students. I am passionate about my subject and I really enjoy my job as a tutor. So if you, or someone you know, wants to learn physics and get higher grades please get in touch.

I will provide:
Increased students grades (see testimonials)
Friendly, reliable and professional service
Inspiration and encouragement
Supporting homework and problems
Highly efficient and effective environment for learning
Excellent subject knowledge
Increased problem solving skills
Significant improvements to exam technique
An ability to get the best out of students
A level, GCSE and Undergraduate Physics tutorials
A level and GCSE Chemistry and Mathematics tutorials
Help with university entrance exams

Teaching Experience:

I am a professional Physics tutor with nine years teaching and tutoring experience. In 2005 I graduated from Leeds University with a BSc Physics, having achieved the second highest mark in the year.  I received a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education) from Nottingham University in 2007.  After which I completed an NQT followed by two years at the Brunts School in Mansfield, with particular success teaching GCSE and A-level Physics. 

In 2011 I started tutoring part time while studying for a Masters in Nanoscience at Nottingham University. I graduated in 2012 having achieved the highest mark in the history of the course (79.3%), while my tutees have made massive improvements.

I have obtained a PhD in Physics. This involved using X-ray based techniques to analyse molecules and nanostructures on surfaces. The primary goal was to investigate charge transfer between these nanostructures and various surfaces.  Charge transfer is very important for solar cells and organic LEDs and his research leads to fundamental understanding of the physics behind these technologies.  Part of this work involved attending MAX-Lab IV in Lund, Sweden and Soleil in Paris to which involved using a synchrotron, which is an X-ray producing particle accelerator.  I hope that this research will lead to developing new technologies for light flexible displays and low cost solar power generation.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work with the student to quickly find the problems they are having with physics, then rebuild their knowledge or correct their misconceptions, making the relevant physics clear and easy to understand. Challenging questions and assignments will be set to drive, encourage and push a student outside of tutorials. This also helps to carefully assess knowledge and give them a much clearer understanding. Working through problem solving, examination techniques and confidence building exercises, I can improve a students' performance in any exam. Ultimately driving students towards their best while making the learning process fun, enjoyable and inspirational.

How online tutorials work:
Tutorials online are conducted over Skype or FaceTime using Scribbler. This means students can see me and talk to me via a video call. Scribbler is an interactive white board used by both myself and my student, it is web based so only a flash enabled web browser is required (it doesn't work on an iPad). This allows students to work with me on problems, and keep their tutorial notes in one place for revision. I also used a wide range a range of animations and online resources, which are carefully selected to improve understanding.

Whatever you need:
So if you just need help with a few problems, a complete course in physics from scratch, or anything in-between, I can help, please get in touch.

Personal Description:
I graduated from MSc Financial Computing at UCL with a distinction and did my bachelor degree in Mathematics (Upper Second Class) at UCL.

Having spent my childhood in Luxembourg, I am fluent in 4 languages (German, French, English and Luxembourgish) and semi-fluent in Swedish. My father is French and my mother is German - thus I am at a native level in both French and German.

Thus I have been tutoring up to 6 students at a time in Mathematics, German and French.

Since I have a strong background in music, having played the piano since the age of 3 and having won several international piano competitions as well as considering a career as a concert pianist, I have also tutored several students in Piano.

I am currently working as a Tableau developer and am thus more than happy to offer tutoring in Tableau.

For further information regarding my CV, it can be found on LinkedIn.

Teaching Experience:

I take pride in my tutoring. All my students have managed to reach their goals, be it personal achievements or needing to be prepared for exams. My most promising student started out with an average of F in German and, a year later, successfully completed his German GCSE with an A.

Tutoring Approach:

All of my students enjoy my teaching style, as it is less formal and thus more relaxed. It has made all of my students motivated as, from my overall experience, the last thing a kid or teenager wants to do outside of school is a lesson that reminds them of school. To make lessons more fun, I am using several apps and websites that enable for a better interactivity within the lessons and allow me to track the progress through some of the apps later on and showcase it to the student's parents. From my experience, this way of teaching enables them to be open to a bigger intake of knowledge and results in faster and more detailed learning.

Personal Description:
I hold a Masters in Photography and have been in the photographic business with over 15 years, I have used all modern digital cameras from compact, Digital SLR and up to and including Medium Format Digital Cameras.

I specialise in Wedding, Commercial, Advertising, Insurance and Injury based photography working to Licentiate standard of the British Institute of Professional Photography and Associate of The Royal Photographic Society. I have produced high quality images for wedding couples as well as using my training and skills to produce images for websites, restaurants, Advertising and Photo Restoration along with producing images which stand up to legal and ethical scrutiny in both injury and insurance work. I have written training methods for photography, using Flash, Getting the Most from High Definition Capture as well as working with other photographic trainers in the wider field of photography. During this time I have trained photographers in specialised subject such as Marco, Flash, Camera Care and Post Processing Software.

I use fine optics and microscopes and prepare images for web and magazine layout for medical publications using Photoshop Techniques.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring both amateur and professional photographers with over ten years and always endeavour to get the maximum out of every camera regardless of its size and cost.

I relate well to people.

I speak clearly.

I can quickly evaluate skill levels of individuals and can modify both techniques and explanations to suit the learner.

I have been involved with photographic training over the last six years helping both amateur and professional photographers alike.

I am very familiar with the theory and practical use of all formats of cameras ranging from 35mm to Large Format Equipment.

I am conversant in the many works of past photographers as well as latter day amateur and professional people.

Presently, I work as a Tutor and I have over 65 persons in lesson ranging from the age of 4 to Age 56. I am also studying Photogrammetry after my MA Photography.

I collect reference books and articles books on the subject of Photography and Art.

I can use both Traditional and Digital Techniques for Image Capture.

I can use both Traditional and Digital Techniques for the development of images both in the Darkroom and in Post Processing Software such as Capture One, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe CS4, 5,6/ Elements./ Final Cut Pro/X.

I am an advocate of the new revolutionary techniques of HD Video captured by an SLR.

I can use both Apple Macintosh and PC Systems.

I have written Presentations in Photographic Lessons.

I can demonstrate Practicals on the subject of Photography.

I can tackle many aspects of photography from Portrait, Wedding, Commercial, Urban, Landscape, Black and White, Architectural, Commercial, Macro to telephoto as well as Microscopy and Photomicrography.

I can competently create beautiful Black and White Images

Tutoring Approach:

I am a kind person and I do realise that I was once a beginner in this area, while it will not happen overnight, my experience has shown that my clients can fastrack their abilities by the benefit of my methods.
I have just completed an MA Photography in where I undertook a project which was an assertive evaluation on landscape photography, highlighting the factor of scale and the part it plays with both the picture and the viewer.

Using traditional and digital photographic techniques together with specialised optics. my work explored conventional landscapes alongside fragments in extraordinary detail. My work challenged the traditional view that photography is a science or art, demonstrating that it can be both.

Within two years I want to build on my MA Photography and hopefully study for a PhD in this area. I also want to build on my Associate status of The Royal Photographic Society and want to aim for a Fellowship of this organisation within two years by September 2014.

I have made some very good friendships in the area of photography who are of enormous help to me.

I have spoken at major International Lectures in overseas Conventions.

I am hoping to have a Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society within two years, September 2014

I aim to start an Outreach Program on Photography by the summer of 2013.

Personal Description:
My name is Laurence, I am a University French teacher, I provide French lessons to student for academic, business and leisure purposes

Teaching Experience:

.I have a lot of experience in teaching, first from my father who is a doctor in law and has taught for many years in primary, college and university. Also, I have experience providing French classes to A-level students in college, and French for Beginners, intermediate and advanced level. Using resources from AQA, BBC, Edexcel, Palgrave and more. I am also researching on many projects to develop teaching and learning of French via VLE, Social Media, e-learning tools

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to identify student needs in a one to one interview or test, I create a lesson plan, and I talk with my student on the methods and the teaching preferences. I design the French experience and choose the best resource to facilitate my students learning. I am approachable and accessible, and I encourage my student to feel comfortable to talk to me. I challenge the stereotype and discrimination, and I promote a healthy learning environment using a range of teaching and learning approaches based upon student needs to encourage and motivate students to speak French with confidence and pass his exam

Personal Description:
I am a Taiwanese who base in Edinburgh. Before I moved back to Scotland in 2014, I was a doctoral student at the University of Chicago in Greek and Latin. I have a BA degree in history from National Taiwan University (2006). After I spent a year studying Greek and Latin at Trinity College Dublin (2005-6), I gained a post-baccalaureate certificate in Greek and Latin from Columbia University in the City of New York (2008) and then a MPhil in Latin from the University of St. Andrews in 2011. Afterwards, I spent three years pursuing PhD research on Greek and Latin at the University of Chicago. At the present, I am photographing Edinburgh and Dublin and preparing my portfolio, exhibition, and photo books. I am very much enthusiastic about finding knowledge in both textual and visual worlds. Moreover, I am writing stories about Taiwanese diaspora for a journal in Taiwan. When it comes to Latin, I am currently reading Statius, Tibullus, and Seneca because I believe learning Latin is a life-long career that requires one's enthusiasm and dedication.

Teaching Experience:

I have been learning Latin for more than a decade, at National Taiwan University, Trinity College Dublin, Columbia University, the University of St. Andrews and the University of Chicago. I have TAed and taught Latin in Taiwan and the States. During this period, I have helped Cambridge University Press to translate Cambridge Latin Course series into Chinese Mandarin. During my stay in Chicago (2011-13), I also helped young people who have learning and reading difficulty.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:
Apart from solving the problems of your school work, we will do more exercise, such as unseen translation and English-Latin translation, to find out your weak and strong points. The exercise will help me prepare materials that will help you memorise syntax, vocabulary, and grammar. Grammar can be very boring and put down students' interest in Latin. However, learning through reading interesting, alien, and exotic stories will enhance students' motivation to look into the Roman Antiquity. Reading will also more effectively shed lights on the parts of grammar and syntax we need to make up. Moreover, I will show you how to master speech recognition tactics in order to develop a stronger reading comprehension. I believe in the end of this course, we will have a better understand of Latin as a language and Latin literature as a whole.




English
I have been learning English since I was fifteen. I have overcome many difficulties, such as taking language exams, living in foreign lands, and doing academic works. I will share those experience with you. This tutoring will focus on the various needs and interests of individual students. You may bring the materials that interest you. We also can look into big books, newspapers or stories covering your the stories of your country. We can also look into websites which offer wonderful resources for people whose first language is not English, such as BBC. By reading, listening and discussing together, I will help you find out your weak points and we will start from there.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching experience in schools

I arrived in the UK in 2009 as a Foreign Language Assistant. I was teaching French in rural primary schools around Suffolk.

After my PGCE, I started working at Thomas Gainsborough School as a French teacher. I have taught primary school students at local primary schools (Wells Hall, Bures Primary School, Nayland Primary School) and pupils from Year 7 to Year 13. I have a very good knowledge of the GCSE and A-level exams.

I have also taught Spanish to students in Year 7, 8 and 9.

Other teaching experience (private tutoring)
-I have taught French to two mature students, for leisure. I was teaching them according to their needs: one student wanted to discuss the news and I was printing articles that we would study. I also helped this student taking care of paper work related to her house in France. My other student only wanted to practise the speaking, therefore we would speak in French for about one hour.

-I have taught French to two secondary school students who purely loved the French language. We would do games, grammar, speaking activities and we even made some crêpes!

Tutoring Approach:

I will tailor my lessons to your needs or the needs of your child. I can teach French to beginners, help with homework, re-explain what wasn't understood in the classroom, study novels or simply have a chat.

Personal Description:
Hello student, I am a young Spanish guy who work in the health sector (NHS), precisely in a microbiology laboratory.
I am a cheerful, hard-working, dynamic and patient person. I would like to teach Spanish in my spare time. Like you I've also been and am still a student of a foreign language, so I understand how hard it can be. But in the same way I also appreciate how nice it is to communicate in that language which has devoted so much time.

Teaching Experience:

My experience as a tutor is as follows. Six years coaching swimming to kids about 8 years old and currently at work teaching my coworkers about different techniques in the lab.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I can teach you to write, read, and talk. And all above that you are interested. Just ask me.

I'll show you the Spanish culture, its gastronomy (jamon iberico) and in which countries you can speak Spanish

Personal Description:
I am an Oxford graduate with a First Class Masters in Chemistry (Hons). I tutor at all levels and ages with a particular emphasis on the sciences and maths at A Level and GCSE. I also teach for school entrance exams, and have five years of experience tutoring for 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, with a 100% success rate.

I am currently studying at the Royal College of Music, London as a postgraduate, and I also teach the flute and piano, and music theory for GCSE, A level and Grade exams.

I am happy to teach, at short notice, specific areas of the A Level Maths/Further Maths (including the applied modules: statistics, decision and mechanics), Chemistry and Physics courses. I also prepare students for school/university entrance, and currently have a 100% success rate for the 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, and Oxbridge applications.

Undergradutate Level: If you would like Chemistry tuition at undergraduate level, please discuss your needs with me through the website`s messaging system. My specialism is in Theoretical Chemistry, and teaching physical/theoretical chemistry is my focus. Undergraduate Organic/Inorganic Chemistry tuition is also available, although some advance notice of topics to be covered is helpful in these cases. Examples of the main topics I teach include:

Quantum Mechanics,
Mathematics for Science (partial differential equations, multivariate calculus, matrix algebra, Fourier analysis etc.),
Thermodynamics (Classical/Statistical),
Reaction Kinetics and Molecular Dynamics,
Symmetry and Group Theory,
Photochemistry,
Magnetic Resonance.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 5 years, I have tutored many young students for the 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, as well as students working towards A Level and GCSE exams. This experience has allowed me to develop my one to one tutoring style, as has my own personal experience of tutorials at Oxford, where I was fortunate enough to be taught by many gifted academics. I also enjoy teaching larger groups in environments such as schools and workshops.

Tutoring Approach:

When I am tutoring, I aim to provide clarity as well as bringing the subject material to life. Being flexible, and catering to the different learning styles of my students is really important to me, but within this I will still maintain a systematic and methodical approach to the learning process. For example, in a typical lesson, I will discuss some relevant theory with the student, resolving any misconceptions and identifying any areas of confusion. Then, I will work through a carefully selected problem with them, guiding them step by step through to the answer, which has the dual purpose of providing them with a worked solution that they can use for revision purposes. Finally, I will give my student a few similar questions to tackle under my supervision, until they are able to solve the problems independently.

Most of my students are taught on a weekly basis for 60, 90 or 120 minutes, depending on what is required. Work between my sessions is an essential way of consolidating the material covered in my sessions. Normally, this will consist of a few exam problems that focus on further application of relevant theory. I will always prioritise quality over quantity when it comes to setting homework, as I am very aware that the student will already have an existing school workload and perhaps sport/musical commitments.

Self-motivation and willingness to work hard outside as well as in my sessions will ensure the success that my students aspire to.

Personal Description:
I am a British teacher who has studied Mandarin Chinese for 8 years. I studied Mandarin at the University of Westminster and continued to increase my fluency in the language whilst living in China and working as a teacher. I've been a language teacher for more than 5 years in the UK, China and Italy, teaching English and Mandarin to students of all ages and levels. I am currently enrolled on a MA course in translation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a language teacher for more than 5 years, teaching Mandarin and English as a foreign language in the UK, China and Italy. I have been employed by a number of language schools in China and Italy, including "Gaoxin No.2 Primary School" in Xi'an, China, and "ispeakenglish" a private language school in Sardinia, Italy.

Tutoring Approach:

Before lessons begin, I like to communicate with students about their learning goals to discuss what they want to achieve from the lessons. The curriculum must be discussed to see what exactly students want to learn, for example if they want to study reading and writing as well as speaking and listening.

Lessons will be bilingual, with a focus on communicative skills to practice and strengthen students' knowledge of new grammar and vocabulary.

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 am a friendly and approachable person who genuinely enjoys the buzz of helping people achieve their goals. I love reading, writing, film and the English language!

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching for 15 years; over half of that as a head of English. I'm nuts about assessment and as a result I'm an examiner for Ks2 SATs, GCSE and A Level. I'm also a moderator for A level so if you need help with coursework then look no further!

Sometimes students want extra help during revision time. I can arrange intensive sessions just before that big exam to give you the confidence you need.

I've also tutored for some years and have my own transport or I am available for Skype training if required.

Tutoring Approach:

When something is made relevant to you, then you're far more likely to remember it. Therefore I always get to know my students and consider how to tailor the learning to them.

My experience with examining makes me a great tutor-I know exactly what the exam board wants...I work for them!

Personal Description:
I've always been a keen mathematician and in turn have developed a strong understanding of the concepts of physics. I have taken on extra mathematics classes where ever I can, including attending math summer schools and also taking on Further Maths as an extra A-Level, which involved me teaching the course to myself. Applying Maths to Physics has strengthened my understanding Maths greatly.

Alongside tutoring, I am also a musician. I sing, play piano and guitar in a two piece band.

Teaching Experience:

I've experienced teaching a wide age range of individuals, including primary school children when assisting my mother's classes at Taverham Hall Private school. I also attended mathematics summer schools, both as a student completing tasks and presenting the outcomes to peers, and also as an assistant teaching students mathematical methods in preparation for A Level mathematics.

I am also a tutor for London Science Tutors. This is for individuals who studied at either Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial or LSE to teach a range of sciences and mathematics. I have been teaching mathematics and physics to a range of pupils, starting from 11 to 18.

I have also been conducting Skype tutoring sessions, including preparation for KS3 mathematics exams and also A-level Core 3 & 4 mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very patient, and having learned firsthand how worried some people can become when they don't understand concepts, I pride myself on being able to make my students feel comfortable. Throughout my bachelor's and master's degrees, I have developed and perfected learning skills in order to understand difficult concepts within both maths and physics. I feel that having had many years of trial and error in order to find out the best ways to learn, I have developed a well-rounded set of skills, both in terms of learning and teaching, which I believe to be effective for tutoring.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced journalist and academic tutor. I have spent hundreds of hours of teaching in classes and I have an outstanding ability to make even the most complicated concept understandable, due to my professional experience in the Media . I am proficient in producing various types of texts, from academic essays to fiction and blog content and I have tons of experience in producing them, both in Greek and in English.

Academically, I have two masters degrees from two of the most prestigious institutions in the U.K. The fields of my studies are Politics (specifically, political theory and constitutional design) and EU Politics. I graduated both M.Sc.s with distinction and particularly, my dissertations were examples of academic research of the highest standards and quality.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience in teaching, acquired during my academic career but also during the early stages of my professional career, when I used to work as a teaching assistant of various subjects, including English as a foreign language in Greece, Politics and EU Politics. I have worked with students of s undergraduate and graduate level, but also adult professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I see teaching and especially tutoring as a means of communicating something that is known and familiar to me, to another person. In order to be clear and concise, I try to asses what the individual knows about the issue that we are about to talk about and then I try give my teaching a structure of sections and subsections, in which I try to cover as much information as possible in the minimum possible time.

My experience in journalism has taught me that I have to start from the bare minimum, the essentials of the concept I am about to explain and then build up by adding extra information, giving examples, making historical comparisons and giving the context. Simultaneously, I am trying to asses whether my listener has understood and is at ease with what I have already covered.
