Personal Description:
I am a Chinese native speaker who is fascinated by my own culture and language and have a passion to teach this great subject and keen to share the beauty of my language with others.
I hold a Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults, which is issused by Goldsmiths College, University of London. I am so delighted I have achieved "A" grade in my teaching practice assessment in above university. Also, I have finished the other part time teacher training courses on the lifelong learning sector. I believe that that private tutor's post will be a great opportunity to put my theory study into practice, improve my teaching skills and fulfils my ambition.

Teaching Experience:

My experience included:
Teaching my own children Chinese.
As a Chinese community teacher.
As a Chinese teacher at a local goverment funding adult learning center.
Employed by different language agent as a freelance Chinese tutor.
Self employed as private Chinese tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would stick to one or two straightforward objectives for one lesson and kept my materials as simple as possible. I would use contrasting pictures, colour word cards and self-made flashcards in order to make the lesson interesting and easy to follow. When presenting new grammar, I always try to kept it basic and simple. Moreover, I would use self-made puzzles to guided the learners to using logic, intuition and elimination to make up a character. It is also important to make learning fun and entertaining so I would try to maintain some humour when teaching. I would like to make the lessons interesting, enjoyable and memorable and students obtain the knowledge of the Chinese language through entertaining and the subconscious way. Last but not least, I would use up-to-date course books and learning material.

Tutoring Approach:

My training revolves around clarification, scepticism and individuality. All training is time managed to ensure the student gets the most out of their lessons. We begin with a clear set objective and make sure the student has in mind the goal of every exercise undertaken. Rather than teach a list of techniques, I actively engage all students to get the most out of their individual strengths and I encourage them to look critically at what will work best for them. I promote a self-coaching concept for more efficient skill retention.

Personal Description:
I have completed PhD in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Manchester. I offer assistance to degree students in assignments and dissertations. I also offer home tuitions for GCSE and A level students. Currently I am teaching at the University of Manchester to engineering students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught as Lecturer at under-grad level in the department of mechanical engineering, UET Lahore for almost three years. In January 2007, I joined the department, as Lab Engineer and then promoted to the position of Lecturer after completing Master's degree in 2009. The university and the department claim top position in national ranking and also enjoy the honour of being the biggest and oldest ones in the country. My career of about two years here was full of struggle and effort for excellence in teaching and research.
In addition to that I have have given tuitions as Home Tutor to GCSE and O/A level individuals and small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I always have the highest expectations of pupils and always have had, even when it was fashionable for learning to be more "child centred"; this is an approach I have found to pay rich dividends in terms of a pupil's academic and personal development. I have always managed to maintain friendly and relaxed environment tailored exactly to what the students requires. Above all I can offer general education and career advice when it matters the most and have observed that my students usually make fast progress towards their goals and good outputs.

Personal Description:
My name is Andrew and I currently live in Fleet, Hampshire. I studied Fine Art up until degree level which I accomplished a 1st class BA Hons Degree in Fine Art. I paint mostly portraiture in a hyper-realistic fashion however I have also experimented with many different and expressive styles of art work, as well as sole abstract work.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work for the Meath Epilepsy trust in Godalming where I teach as an observational and technical instructor for the mental health adult clients who live there. There I work closely with the students building up their personal portfolio in their art work consisting of painting, drawing, charcoal and pastel mark making equipment.

I also teach privately and run art workshops in my spare time in which I teach mature students art techniques in drawing and painting. My main qualities in teaching come from portraiture and painting with acrylic and oil paint.

Recently I have completed the PTLLS teaching training course and wish to continue my studies in teaching within the near future.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that teaching is about personal connection with your students and interacting with them on their level rather than simply 'getting the job done'. I can teach someone how to do something and for them to copy my influence is something, however to teach someone to do it themselves without aid takes time to practice over and over certain techniques. I think a student should be taught from the ground upwards and to slowly neglect bad habits from the past. The student then can become versatile and highly skilled and more importantly 'satisfied' with their work and practice.
I teach my students by constantly reminding them of basic principles of drawing/painting techniques and methods for which the student automatically revises their own work and own mistakes alone.

I teach a range of techniques in my art lessons such as palette knife, paint brush techniques and technical sketching methods. I also instruct with a diverse variety of mediums such as pastel, charcoal, ink, pencil and paint such as acrylic and oil.

Personal Description:
Hi there! I`m a young professional drummer based in London. I am an enthusiastic and down to earth educator and have been providing drum tutoring for a number of years to all ages and abilities. I cover a wide range of styles and techniques, providing my students with the best tools to achieve their full potential.

I am happily married to my wife Ruth and love music, motor racing, films and good coffee! Thank you very much for your time.

Teaching Experience:

I received private drum tuition myself for a number of years from an excellent educator. I have been teaching drums to young children, teenagers and adults for over 4 years. I have taught classes at professional music schools, and provided one to one tuition as well. I have lots of experience reading and writing drum music, have been a professional musician for 10 years, and love it!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a thorough and practical approach to teaching. I believe in my students setting their own goals (with some suggestions from me), whilst encouraging and equipping them to achieve their best. I use a very down to earth and open approach to education. I hope to develop an excellent rapport with any student, so they can share their own goals and musical aspirations, so we can work together to achieve them. I am keen for my students to pursue practice in their own time, and provide them with the encouragement and inspiration to make that happen. I aim to build my students confidence greatly on the instrument, and give them a sense of real accomplishment in music.

I recently passed a DBS check for work within a school. I`ve been a member of the musicians union for many years, and can offer a great insight into the world of music through a professional`s eyes.

Personal Description:
I am currently taking my PhD in classics at Durham University, having taken my undergraduate degree in classics at Cambridge and my MA at Durham. Also I should mention that I have GCSE and A-level qualifications in Latin and Ancient Greek and am very familiar with the structure and requirements of these exams for any student who may be taking them. My current work focuses heavily on Latin literature, as I am preparing a commentary on Martial's twelfth book of epigrams, although I am equally able to offer assistance to students of classical Greek literature.

Teaching Experience:

During my undergraduate degree I gained experience in private tuition by running a weekly class for two years. The class was based around the works of Homer and catered to a range of abilities. Although the class was primarily geared around making sure the tutees could render an accurate translation of a set passage, assistance was also provided in matters of syntax and style, metrical and literary stylistic considerations, as well as explanations of socio-historical matters.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tuition will of course largely be dependent upon the needs and ability of the respective tutee. For GCSE or A-level students, however, I think it would always be best to begin each lesson with a quick test on a point of grammar and vocabulary (as there is a prescribed list of vocabulary up to AS level), and a literary stylistic feature (e.g. identifying a chiasmus etc.), since these formal aspects essentially underlie the series of unseen exams from GCSE - A-level. After this test, each lesson should focus on a text, ideally alternating each lesson with a text that is prescribed as one of the set texts for the respective exams with an unseen passage. This approach tends to produce the best results since the unseen passages give a true indication of the student's strengths and weaknesses and help the tutor to understand more easily what aspects need to be prioritised.

Personal Description:
I am an Open University student, studying psychology with counselling.

I have a keen interest in teaching and know how difficult and stressful it can be to get the necessary grades. I also know that younger children often tire of learning things that they don't find interesting and have tutored children successfully by relating their interests to what they are studying. I have experience teaching people with learning difficulties.

Teaching Experience:

EAL mentoring
Experience teaching and tutoring KS1
Workshop for KS2 children on how to build a motor vehicle (design, electronics, aerodynamics, etc.)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will vary depending on the tutee. While I will make lesson plans, they will be more of a guideline than a fixed plan. I am willing to answer any queries that may arise between sessions and can be contacted by email or text.

Personal Description:
Hello! I am Maria. I am a Spanish who has been living in Bedford for two years. I have got plenty of experience in teaching one to one and other education methods. I just love teaching as I think that what you teach someone remains there forever, it is like a gift for live. I reckon that learning is the best human ability and I like being part of that.

Teaching Experience:

I have a great background teaching both children and adults. I started tutoring children when I was a student at the university and then I carried on doing it for a few years. I worked also for many years in a science company where I provided science classes in schools as well as activities, shows and workshops.
I also have a broad experience teaching Spanish and helping my students either to pass their language test or to be able to communicate while living or going on holiday to Spain and South America.

Tutoring Approach:

Language are the key to communicate, and that is always in my mind when I teach spanish. The lessons are always dynamic and guided to make students speak and understand quickly and successfully. It's a different method designed to enjoy learning from the beginning and really focused on pronunciation.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in Adult Education at a variety of colleges for approximately 10 years (until 2000) - my main subject was Ancient Egyptian History - one of the colleges was Birkbeck University (University of London) I taught undergraduates. I ran a class for a number of years before that for City University on Ancient Egyptian History. For 6 years I taught Information Technology (seminars) at London Metropolitan University, to first year undergraduates. More recently (2000-2014) I worked in Criminal Justice delivering Cognitive Behavioural programmes to offenders and also on another programme supporting victims of violence.
I used to host language students for St Giles English Language school and also for a year taught TEFL one-to-one.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is Socratic in delivery, to draw from the student what they know, what their interests are and expand on that. I like to bring students to poetry, and know about poetry from a variety of cultures from Moslem (like Rumi, Omar Khayam) to French and Afro Caribbean writers. I think learning English should be broad and interesting and make people think. My teaching method is through a conversational approach, short written exercises for identifying strengths and weaknesses, building on strengths and working on areas that require a structured approach for improvement. Learning should be interesting and it should be fun.

Personal Description:
I am patient and reliable. My ability to pay maximum attention to the academic needs of students has endeared me closer to my clients (students). I feel happy when there exists a smile of satisfaction on the faces of those under my tutelage. I am punctual to my appointments.

Teaching Experience:

I have acquired a total of 8 years post-university teaching experience mainly in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Statistics and Chemistry and biology. I also have a long standing experience in teaching study skills for maximum success.
I have taught in secondary school and in Universities.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple. First of all, understanding the students' strength and weakness in the subject area of interest is important as this serves as a yard stick in measuring the magnitude of tutoring required.
This will also suggest how best to go about it. Using pictures and stories have been found to yield successful results in most cases.
Assessment of the students in the end also helps to detail how far the student has made progress.

Personal Description:
I have 10 years experience of teaching and tutoring at all levels up to university (lecturer for 5 years) and have all 5 star feedback. My tutees get great results (93% As and A*s this year) and most importantly, show outstanding improvements in both understanding and confidence.

I am really passionate about science and teaching: during my academic career, I have been fortunate enough to have plenty of opportunities to combine the two at a variety of levels. I come from a very large family and have been involved in work with children from a young age - from riding instructor to homework 'buddy' and in the last 10 years tutoring and teaching. I love the moment that you see the light of understanding come on in the person that you are working with - I got into science for these moments myself and to be honest, it's almost as rewarding to see them in someone else! It is particularly exciting when you see someone go from frustration to 'getting it'.

I'm extremely patient, calm and focused. I work best with individuals or small groups of 2-3 students.

Teaching Experience:

All exam boards plus IB
GSCE: This year's students achieved cracking results in biology, chemistry, maths, physics and geography. Almost all As and A*s - I was very proud of them!
A-level:
Again, almost all As in biology and chemistry. Most came to me with predicted Ds so we were all delighted with the results.
Primary level:
My own children were partially home-schooled so I have copious experience there!
11-14:
I currently tutor in maths and science, I used to run a weekend biology group for adolescents and have taught English as a secondary language at this level
University level:
Range of subjects including biology, biochemistry, nutrition, aquaculture, fisheries economics, thermodynamic engineering

Tutoring Approach:

The foundation of my approach is to building confidence and enthusiasm in my pupils. I use a combination of exam questions and structured sessions. This allows the student to become familiar and comfortable with the format of questions, and to more easily identify what the examiner is asking. It also allows me to focus the effort on where there are gaps in the knowledge or understanding.
I am extremely patient & able to come up with new and innovative ways to help my students overcome whatever problems they experience in the subjects I teach. I like to see the students put in some effort because I think the best results are achieved that way but I am always supportive.

Personal Description:
I'm an Oxford physics student who enjoys teaching and learning maths and science. I am friendly, academic and approachable.
I achieved 4 A* grades at A level, in physics, chemistry, maths and further maths. At GCSE level, I achieved 11 A* grades, including maths, further maths, triple science and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have privately tutored several students in maths and the sciences at KS3, GCSE and A Level. I also help with a voluntary tutoring programme in Oxford, teaching science to educationally disadvantaged children.

Tutoring Approach:

I mainly offer intensive end-of-term revision courses in maths and science, and will next be free from 10th July until the end of September.
I like to agree goals with the tutee in the first session so that we can work together on these areas for improvement in a targeted way, for example by using the specification for an exam the tutee is preparing for.
I would happily offer discounts for multiple tutees.

Personal Description:
Hi there! My name is Alex I am 23 years old and a Biological Sciences graduate from Leicester University.

I know how tough getting into medical school is. Getting the grades are the first step to getting in, however, it is vitally important to know how to go about preparing for interview, tackle the UKCAT and write a personal statement.

Last year I was fortunate enough to gain all my offers post-interview from my universities including: Newcastle, Keele, Southampton. My UKCAT score both years running was 2930. At my Keele interview I scored 46/50 points (cut-off was 35), and subsequently chose this university, but everyone is different! The interviews at these universities included; MMI, team-based, and panel interviews which I worked hard at to learn how to go about practicing for these.

I really want to help others who really have a passion to study medicine at university, and I believe I can be a great help. I have this summer to help you out with how to go about interview preparation, how to succeed in UKCAT and help you with personal statements.

First hour of tutoring I will do at half price (12.50). From then onward its 25 per hour, 40 for two hours.

It is also important to note that if you require Biology teaching, from GCSE, to A level, to degree level I can also provide this. I achieved a 1st Class in my degree, and 80% in my dissertation.

If you have any questions at all about what I can offer you please don't hesitate to call me and leave a message, or text me.

Many thanks, Alex.

Teaching Experience:

In the past 6 months I have been tutoring on and off with prospective medical students. As I only got into university to study medicine last September.

However I have been an assistant tennis coach since 16 years old, therefore teaching is something I enjoy doing and am no stranger to. Helping somebody get into this fantastic career would be great.

Tutoring Approach:

I am incredibly patient and always willing to listen to any questions you may have. I don't have a set style I am flexible to the person and what they want out of the tutoring. Overall my aims to get out of this are to make you as prepared as possible to get into medical school.

If you are after Biology tutoring again it is all about you. If you are a visual learner, auditory learner or a reading/writing learner I can accommodate to all these ways of teaching. As well as teaching on how to improve long-term memory and retain knowledge.
