Personal Description:
I am 50 years of age and have a wealth of experience in many aspects of life, including education and commerce. I have taught in colleges and schools and have run my own computer software company. I also have experience of property development. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy the challenge of helping students to achieve their best; I enjoy working one to one with students or in small groups; tutorials are tailor made for each student, based on an assessment and previous exam results. I have a BA and a BSC(hons) degree in maths and computing. I also hold qualified teacher status and a Secondary Mathematics Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

Teaching Experience:

25 years of teaching experience including 20 years teaching Motor Vehicle Technology in colleges in Cornwall, Bristol and Essex and 5 years teaching mathematics and several other subjects in secondary schools. I am also a qualified NVQ assessor for Motor Vehicle Engineering.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that to enable a student to achieve their best a "hands-on" approach is best. Building on strengths and developing weaknesses. I like to work with the students past exam papers so I know exactly where they need help. lessons are are tailor made to the individuals needs.

Personal Description:
Personal Description:

I am a dedicated and experienced Maths and Science tutor.(GCSE and A Level Maths plus GCSE and A Level Sciences). I focus on each individual that I teach with the view of enabling each of them to achieve their full potential and to remove any barrier to progress. I work hard to keep up to date with ever-changing specifications and expectations of public exams and to collect or prepare resources that match them accurately. I am positive in my approach to life and people, which allows me to create an enthusing learning environment for individual students and for groups. I show empathy and understanding when students struggle with the contents but I have also high expectations and I aim to support them to develop resilience and a strong work ethos.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Experience:
I have taught in educational establishments for many years and I have been a tutor for the last four years. My lecturing experiences include the University of Southbank, where I prepared students to start their Degree courses and sixth form colleges like BSix, in Hackney, where I taught A levels in Science and Maths. I also taught in schools both in UK and abroad. My teaching experience have given me a good understanding of the British curriculum, including success criteria for public examinations. As a tutor, I have been committed and determined in ensuring the best possible outcomes for those I teach. As a result of my passion and effort, I have seen many of my students building up their confidence and achieve good or excellent grades in their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring Approach:
Before each session, I work hard to prepare the appropriate resources for the student that I will teach. These include exam questions, practice exercises, revision notes, videos and presentations. When approaching the individual student, I always try to diagnose what barriers are preventing him from improving further and I make sure that the student understands what they need to do and how to do it. Feedback on exam questions is an important part of my tutoring: I want students to reflect on their level of understanding and on their exam strategies. In revising concepts, I explore my student's knowledge and address any gap or misconceptions that they may have built up in their previous study. Students find my sessions enjoyable and helpful

Personal Description:
I am 47 years old, bi-lingual and live in central Broadstairs. I have been teaching and tutoring since I qualified as a teacher of German as a foreign language in 1992 and in addition I hold a BA degree from the Open University, course included Information Technology and Maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching classes, small groups and students on a one-to-one basis since 1992. This includes 9 years in London. I have taught German to classes as well as intensive in-house business courses to all age groups, including adults and exam preparation.

I have in more recent years started teaching maths to children out of the need to help my own and find this extremly enjoyable and rewarding.

Personal Description:
My name is Marco, during the past twelve years, I have taught the Italian language in England and abroad.
My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- organization of workshops, conferences, public lectures and roundtables with teachers, heads of schools, deans of universities to enhance the presence of the Italian language teaching in Guatemala among schools and private and State funded Universities;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;
- creation of strategic networks among various educational partners both locally and internationally for the provision of scholarships for students and teachers in need;


I am graduate in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University Ca' Foscari of Venice and I possess the ITALS Master's Degree in Teaching and promotion of the Italian language and culture to foreigners.

At December 2007 I graduated with success from the ITALS M. A. Degree in Teaching and Promotion of Italian Language and Culture of the University Ca' Foscari of Venice. The topic of my dissertation was linked to how organize an MFL interactive teaching unit in a class composed of students with different abilities.
At the end of May 2008 I published Mosaico Italia, a book on Italian Language and Culture that can be used with students with an Intermediate level of Italian (level B1 of the Common European Reference for Languages). This book aims to provide a didactic instrument to investigateItalian reality.

I added to my knowledge gained 'in the field' by taking the Master's Degree in Education at Birkbeck, University of London, graduating in November 2011 with Distinction. Success on this program entailed my being able to integrate effectively concrete work experience with theoretical knowledge in such a way that I deepened my analytical skills, overall.

Teaching Experience:

My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;

Tutoring Approach:

think I am able to enhance the skills of low performing students by individualizing teaching methods and processes. My teaching style focuses very much on the outcomes my students wish to achieve by improving their Italian, be they grammatical, written or conversational. I am dedicated to helping my students learn and improve their Italian in an atmosphere that encourages interaction, listening, feedback and empathy. Above all, I like to make the process of learning Italian a fun experience that enriches my students' personal and professional lives through a sense of achievement.
The teaching techniques, which could be useful in a Foreign Language Tuition, are those in which communication between the tutor and the student is always is promoted. In this regard, mutual interaction and collaboration lead to a more natural learning of the language. This process follows a teaching method where the humanist-affective approach is used to practice the basic and integrated linguistic abilities while learning a foreign language.

Personal Description:
After obtaining my Master degree in St. Petersburg Academy (Russia, 2000) Ph.D. in fine art through Sorbonne (Paris, 2008), I moved to the UK and have been teaching part time with the Russian Art School in Oxford and Russian School in London. I specialise in Russian language, graphic design and textile art.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored private students and taught classes of adolescent and pre-adolescent children through the Russian School in London as described above. Previously I have also taught Fine art in the St Petersburg Art School in Russia.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is holistic - I believe art is an expression of personal experience, and as such teaching technique is a means to an end rather than an end in itself. As an expression of a person's experience of life, art is also about beauty, and sharing the way that is perceived.

Personal Description:
My name is Andy. I finished my A-Levels in 2011 and am preparing to study German and Russian at The University of Cambridge starting in October. I excelled at languages in school, receiving an A* in German A2 and an A in French AS. Between school and university I studied at the Goethe Institute in Berlin, lived and worked in Germany for over half a year, and am now starting to learn Russian and pusuing my other interests such as computer programming. I have also travelled extensively in France and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have no formal teaching experience (yet!) but learning three foreign languages myself and having studied German in a class actually taught in German, I am very familiar with the aspects of language that students have difficulty with. I am always thinking of better ways to explain things than the way they were explained to me, because every student learns in their own way; this makes me well placed to teach languages, German in particular due to my recent experiences in my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

Having only recently completed my German GCSE myself (in 2009), I am familiar with the way it is taught in school. I also had lessons from a private tutor myself in German for a year or so during secondary school, so I know the sorts of things that will complement and expand on the material taught in class.

Personal Description:
I am a Maths Mentor in a secondary school with a CRB in London with a Bachelor degree with 1st Class Honours from Warwick University. On weekdays, I work in a financial institution and providing tuition to students on weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I have 1 year teaching experience to GCSE Foundation and Higher Maths paper.
This year result was good, few of my students have improved from F to a C grade.

Tutoring Approach:

My tuition style depends very much on the student's individual needs. Gaining confidence is the key in improving Mathematics grades. I also like to share my life experience which I believe is beneficial to help another one believe nothing is impossible to archive if they work hard. Helping the student to find their abilities is key. I strive to help them enjoy their subject and develop not only during tuition but also in broader terms with regards to self directed learning.
I am available after 6pm on Wednesday and most time on weekends.

Personal Description:
My name is Becky and I am an experienced Primary School Teacher. I specialise in preparing students for both the 11+ entrance exams, helping children prepare for SAT's, and also give booster sessions for children who need extra support at any age during their primary years. I have experience working across the age range and am a confident, knowledgeable practitioner. I aim to provide individually tailored lessons that will help your child achieve their very best potential.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher with a 'first' class honours degree in Primary Education (BEd) as a mature student. I have since then been a subject coordinator for Gifted and Talented children, Art and Children in Care. I have taken every opportunity to keep myself up to date and enhance my subject knowledge of the Primary Curriculum, with regular and current training. I have two children who have both been successful in gaining places at Grammar Schools by taking and passing the 11+. I look forward to helping many more students achieve the same exam success.

Tutoring Approach:

For 11+ tutoring

I teach collaboratively with Chris, who is also listed on UK Tutors. We teach in a purpose built classroom, with access to an interactive whiteboard and other teaching tools. We jointly teach small groups with class sizes limited to a maximum of ten students. Students in a small group support each other and work together with a shared purpose and confidence. Having both an experienced Primary teacher, and an experienced Secondary teacher, will give your child a unique and highly effective session.

Chris is a knowledgeable Secondary School Teacher who specialised in Chemistry. He has had a successful career in both Independent Schools and Mainstream and was Head of Chemistry at Plymstock School for 10 years. He has now built on his success and become a, much sought after, self employed Professional Tutor. He not only is an academic tutor, but also is a Professional Drummer and offers drumming lessons in his purpose built studio. Chris has a fully enhanced CRB.

Weekly 60 minute sessions at £20, run from September until the end December. These are followed by 75 minute sessions, at £22.50 which run from January to the September exams. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

For SATs preparation and Booster sessions

I work with either small groups of children within the same year group, or with individual students. i can help your child with any aspect of the Primary Curriculum and also help guide and support you to help your child achieve their best. I am highly competent and trained in helping children with special educational needs.

Weekly 60 minute sessions in a group cost £20.00. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

Personal Description:
I have just graduated from Cambridge with First Class Honours in Law. I have a good academic background and achieved A's in all of my A-Levels (Law, History, Politics).

Teaching Experience:

I have always helped friends and family out and tutored them on an informal basis. I also have experience helping in a primary school classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

Very informal and relaxed, I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable. No question is too stupid and I'll never make anyone feel bad for not knowing the answers. Everyone learns differently and finding out the best way for you to learn is key. Everyone wants to pass their exams so obviously a key focus will be on exam technique and helping to perfect this by going over past papers together.

Personal Description:
My name is Leon and I provide tuition in maths at all levels up to GCSE. My specialism is focusing on people who struggle with maths, including people with dyslexia, and getting them from grade predications of E and below to within reach of grade C in as little as 12 lessons.

In addition to meeting the requirements set by the national curriculum for Key Stage 1 to 3, the tuition I provide can be tailored for the following exams:

- SATs
- 11-plus school entry exams
- GCSE

Teaching Experience:

I have been involved in providing courses over the past 7 years for many individuals and organisations, which have included the NHS and Dundee City Council. My maths teaching is primarily focused on those who struggle with the subject, where I make use of the learning method I have created over 20 years to simplify the understanding of maths for visual and hands on learners.

My tuition is provided inline with the requirements of the national curriculum Key Stage 1,2 and 3, as well as to match the criteria of all major examination boards for GCSE including:

- AQA
- CEA
- Edexcel
- OCR
- WJEC

My achievements related to the teaching services I provide include:

- Regularly taking students from predicted GCSE maths grade of E and below to within reach of grade C in just 12 lessons.

- The maths learning resources I have developed contributing to winning an award, which was featured on BBC Radio Merseyside and in the Liverpool Echo.

Tutoring Approach:

The learning method I have developed for maths is highly suited to people who struggle with the subject, especially those who are affected by learning barriers such as dyslexia. Students make significant progress with my learning method because it is designed to match the thinking processes of people who are more hands on and visually oriented in their learning, allowing them to understand maths in a way that they can make sense of with minimal effort.

My revolutionary learning approach has been designed around each of the following criteria to make learning maths easier, efficient and relevant:

- Avoiding the introduction of new language.
- Allowing concepts to be learnt from pre-existing knowledge.
- Avoiding the need to remember specific maths formulas.

These criteria are supported by exclusive learning content that I have developed for my courses to match the thinking processes of people affected by difficulties in learning maths. This learning content is provided in the form of:

- Visual learning content for understand maths concepts without reading.
- Interactive tools to learn through experimentation and enquiry.

The learning method allows students to recall maths formulas and names used in maths using memory techniques that require minimal effort to learn - and most importantly remain in memory for future recall. My students using these memory techniques only need to be shown maths formulas and concepts once using my learning tools and content - they are then able to recall this information weeks later with minimal effort.

My learning tools can also be used to track progress made throughout the duration of my tuition, which you as a parent can also access via your computer, smartphone (including iPhone) or tablet such as iPad.

Personal Description:
Being academically focused myself, I am confident in being able to motivate and teach through a variety of methods that hopefully excite my tu-tee. Through secondary, I thrived generally in most, if not all subjects. Maths, however, will remain my favourite. I am enthusiastic about teaching and I hope to prove my ability to engage students and guide them on their educational paths.
I am particularly flexible in that I am open to on-line tutoring through Skype if need be.

Currently I am studying Maths, Physics, Latin and Art at ALEVEL.

Teaching Experience:

I've voluntarily taught temporarily at Southfields Primary school, where I taught English.
I volunteer at Sidney Stringer Academy at the Maths GCSE re-take classes for students who are struggling to pass their Maths GCSE at a grade C or above.

Tutoring Approach:

Having recently undergone the exams myself, I feel I'm in the most suitable position to advise current students on how to cope with the content of the constantly changing exam syllabus and exam format. My teaching methods will vary depending on how I assess the student is coping with the subject. If the student learns visually, for example, I can direct them to a range of videos, or even create some myself to suit their learning.
good organisation is key to organising the content both on paper and in your head. As an extremely organised person, I can properly advise students on how to manage their workload to maximise the efficiency of their working.
Different people take different amounts of time to grasp certain concepts and I am open to facilitating their needs.

Personal Description:
I am a professional Artist and Teacher, specialising in Ceramics, Craft, Drawing, Textiles and Creative Writing.

Throughout my crafts and art work, I aim to change the context of found and recycled objects; whether it is finding a new purpose for unwanted books or creating narratives using my porcelain figures. I intend to capture the beauty that is no longer seen in unused objects. This concept is also what draws me to making with clay; using a raw and natural material to create something new and beautiful. I aim to celebrate how aged and recycled objects can be revived into a new and innovative creation.

Throughout my figurative illustrations I am greatly influenced by children's drawings and how they lack perspective and proportion. They are not realistic images, however, with our symbolic awareness as human beings, we are able to recognise the qualities of a figure within ourselves. I believe these imprecisions are something to be admired.

Personal Description:
Enthusiastic Music Tutor (ABRSM friendly)
