Personal Description:
To introduce myself I am married with two children, a son working in Brussels and a daughter at secondary school. There must be history in the blood in our family as I have a Cambridge history degree, my wife a history degree from Warwick and our son studied history at King's College London!
I remain fascinated by history and always remember the opening lines of J. P Hartley are The Go-Between (some of you may have seen Julie Christie in the film?) "The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there". Recent events underline the importance of our past and understanding how we came to be where we are.

Holidays for me often include visits to historic places. In the last few years, for example we have seen the Vatican, Knossos, Granada and the historic places in New England -Boston, Salem and the Plymouth Plantation. My favourite holiday country is France - because of the food!

Teaching Experience:

Since September 2007 I have been involved in distance learning tutoring Key Stage 3GSCE and AS/A2 history for an open learning organisation. I was pleased though it was mostly due to the students that three obtained A*s and three A in the first IGCSE history examination in summer 2011.This work has included the regular marking of students' essays and other work and support and guidance leading to examinations. I have attended training for the new A Levels.

I can also advise graduate and postgraduate students on dissertations, including proof reading.

Individual tutorial support has been or students retaking examinations, mostly AS and A2 on all three examining boards and I have generally made a positive difference to their results. I do not claim to be able to cover all areas of history but my range is wide. At AS/A2 I can support students covering English history topics from the Tudors to the post Second World war period, Imperial Russia from the Emancipation of the serfs until the 1917 Revolutions and the Soviet Union from 1917 until its ending in 1991. I am also confident in topics in German history from unification in 1870 down to reunification in 1989. Similarly I can cover many topics in French history starting with the revolution in 1789. In terms of international history I am familiar with the key themes from circa 1870 through to the end of the Cold War, including the Vietnam War. I can also cover most themes in American history from the Civil War until the post-war era.
At GCSE and Key Stage 3 I can cover most topics and more recently I have also been teaching a school age pupil with autism. I have an up to date CRB

Relevant Previous Experience

lecturing on modern history (C18 to C21) on both first degree and MA courses.
lecturing on a wide range of further education courses
substantial examining and assessment experience, including first degree and MA level
research in higher and further education

HMI 1989-1993 and Further Education Inspector 1993-2001 responsible for the inspection of humanities including history in higher education, further education colleges and schools, both curriculum areas and cross college.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to students is to combine high expectations with a willingness at all times to help and advance their understanding, self confidence and self esteem and encourage them to work with increasing independence. When appropriate I work out with them a study programme with clear goals.

Many of the distance learning students I have taught have been home based because they have withdrawn from school due to bullying and some are living outside the UK. So I have good experince in working with those who, for whatever reason, have found learning difficult

My work in supporting students who are resitting examinationsbgeins with a, careful review of their performance. I , check the past examination papers and the examiners' guidance from the exmanination websites so as to discover why a student's performance has fallen short of expectations and plan a programme to achieve better in a reset.

However tutors are not miracle workers. I would stress that the students cannot expect me as tutor to do everything for them but rather they also have to make a major contribution in order to achieve success.

Personal Description:
I am currently the Music Specialist and Music Co-ordinator at a Kensington Independent Sixth Form College. As well as having a strong knowledge of the usual teaching materials, I have also painstakingly collected a number of my own academic resources in order that I might teach the EDEXCEL A and AS level courses as fully and comprehensively as possible. I have provided a selection of my relevant teaching resources at my personal website (google 'Sam Leak'),under the heading 'teaching resources', so that you may view them. The depth, clarity and relevance of this information should be immediately clear. I have a great depth of musical knowledge and a strong acquaintance with the EDEXCEL syllabus. Thus I feel I am well-equipped to tutor any student wishing to learn the EDEXCEL AS or A Level syllabus with me.


(At my website you will find selected notes under the following headings: "Anton Webern - Quartet Op.22 - Movement 1", "Michael Tippett - Concerto For Double String Orchestra-mvmnt 1", "Haydn, Bruckner, Dowland, Bach", and "Luciano Berio - Sequenza III for female voice" (+Reduction/Score Analyses) )

Teaching Experience:

I am currently the Music Specialist and Music Co-ordinator at a Kensington Independent Sixth Form College. I am also an experienced instrumental teacher (piano), having trained up students for entry to various conservatoires - previous students of mine are now attending The Royal Academy Of Music, Leeds College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire and Trinity College of Music. Alongside having a vast experience of private teaching, I have worked for The Aylesbury Music Centre (Head of Jazz Piano), Brent Music Service, Northcote Lodge School and The Richmond Music Trust. I am CRB cleared for my current teaching positions. I have also recently attended and completed a Child Protection and Safeguarding conference.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer highly structured lessons that are very informative and are aimed at the specific requirements of individual students. Though the teaching process is clearly goal orientated, I aim where possible to help my students to understand the required exam-related materials through a genuine and deep musical and historical understanding.

Personal Description:
I am a highly experienced Maths tutor, geared toward ensuring you get the best exam grades possible in your field. I will increase your understanding of maths, and my explanations are simple and straightforward. Alongside tutoring, I will guide you through exam techniques, and common pitfalls.

Teaching Experience:

6 years private tutor. 4 years private tutor in Maths 1, Maths 2, and Mechanics of Materials of University's courses.
2 years experiences in GCSE and A Level Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching strategy usually involves engaging the student in critical thinking early on, as I believe this is the key to understanding, and I will never "tell" a student what he should do, or why this is like that, but to direct his thinking so that he/she understands why this is the way it is, and why should he/she act that way. I do not believe in memorisation being the main way of teaching in some countries, as this usually does not prepare people for university and life in general, specially in science and maths. Of course, there's always a degree of memorisation in every subject, but I try to keep it to a minimum. This also depends on every student, and I ultimately asses my strategy individually for each student.

Personal Description:
Brilliant 2017 Results: Six students received more than 18 offers from both prestigious independent schools and top grammar schools, including City of London School Girls, Bancroft's School, Chigwell School, Woodford County High School For Girls, Ilford County High School, Forest School, Colchester Royal Grammar School. One of my clients won full scholarship from Brentwood School (only top 10 students from more than 553 applicants are eligible for full scholarship). I am pleased that this is the forth consecutive year for 100% pass rate.

My name is Yang and I am a fully qualified Maths teacher (Qualified Teacher Register no. 1260271) working in an Ofsted "Outstanding" rated school.I have finished my master degree from University of Southampton with distinction, PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics)) from King's College London. I was working in a top investment bank as trader assistant ( yellow jacket ) before changing to become a maths teacher. I have over six years experience in primary, entrance exam, GCSE and A-Level maths tutoring. In this capacity I have extensive experience in preparing students for 11+ entrance exams. I am very familiar with the type of questions that students will face in these exams and what is needed to do well in them. I am always passionate for tutoring and I know how to make students' learning process enjoyable. My strong reputation has been built on my ability to improve my students' varying skills, ability and exam skills. I have unrivaled patience and understanding and I am able to bring the best maths tutoring experience to my students.

I am also a member of British Mathematical Association (BMA), London Mathematical Society (LMS), Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM).

For your peace of mind, I am Enhanced DBS checked. I will bring my Enhanced DBS certificate and school staff ID at the first lesson.

Teaching Experience:

Currently I am working as a Maths teacher in an Ofsted "Outstanding" rated school. I am also working with many Tutoring Agencies as five star rated executive tutor like Top Tutors, Griffin and Bell Education and Holland Park Education, etc. Unlike other tutors, I only teach limited number of students to ensure quality. My A-Level students successfully entered top universities like LSE, Warwick University, Imperial College and other elite Russell Group universities. 11+students successfully got through entrance examination to top schools like City of London School, Bancroft's School, Chigwell School, Woodford County High School For Girls, Ilford County High School, Forest School, etc.

Education:

King's College London
Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics) (PGCE)

University of Southampton
MSc. in Accounting and Finance (Distinction)

Tutoring Approach:

Quality is everything for me. International Student Assessment (ISA) shows that Chinese students ranked best in the world at maths ( UK is ranked 28th for maths, Source: google "Shanghai students ranked best in the world at maths and science", The Telegraph).

As a British Chinese, I can tell you the secret of Chinese learning maths. I have a unique method of tutoring which can be adapted whatever the skill level and also unique exam techniques. But my first objective is to target my students' enthusiasm for the subject so they will be passionate to learn mathematics. Practice is also essential for learning maths, but a good tutor knows how to design different questions for effective practice. Finally,I usually believe that learning is a continuing process and if I am honored to be your tutor, I can not only help you learn the knowledge, but also master the art of learning until one day, you will be able to help others like I do.

Personal Description:
I am a Music graduate hoping be a primary or secondary school teacher. Teaching is a passion of mine and and hope to gain and learn as much experience as possible within this sector. I am friendly, with excellent communication skills. When working with pupils, i always want them to succeed and get the grades they need through motivation, encouragement and making them feel they are able to ask questions at any point. The most rewarding part of tutoring is knowing that pupils are achieving good grades and they feel confident enough in school to do the tasks in class.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant and help pupils with their school work and homework. I have supported pupils in many different subjects from Maths, English, Science to Art and Drama. I have developed different ways of teaching through one to one lessons which i currently do at the school with a pupil and have been doing this since February 2012. I have worked previously in a Primary School as a voluntary teaching assistant.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel its important to look at what pupils are currently working on in school which can also include homework they are struggling with and help them with that. I create a friendly environment where they are comfortable enough to ask questions and able to tell me when they still don't understand.

Personal Description:
I am an actor currently completing an MA at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and an arts enthusiast with incisive critical engagement skills and 5 years private tuition experience. I'm able to draw from a wide range of critical theories and approaches when analysing arts and performance related texts. A big fan of film, theatre, visual art, music, literature and comedy.

Teaching Experience:

I graduated from Royal Holloway in 2011 with the highest degree grade of the graduate year. I was approached by many of my co-students to advise them on essays and creative work and was employed by the Drama department to run workshops for prospective students. I'm now a professional theatre-maker and freelance drama practitioner having led workshops with a wide spectrum of people from ages 10 up to 75 years old. I also offer audition guidance and monologue tuition for actors and acting students.

Testimonial from Ina:

"Thank you for all your help with my Film Studies, I ended up getting an A* and also an A* in Media Studies. so I got my place at the University of Exeter to study Management with Marketing, thanks a lot, I couldn't have done it without you!"

Testimonial from Nadia:

"Dean's tuition was fantastic! He is patient but he still pushed me to do my best. I am much more confident writing about drama and theatre. Dean made sure I understood everything we talked about which meant I didn't forget it in my exam and I ended up getting an A!"

Tutoring Approach:

I like to spread a love and enthusiasm for arts and humanities subjects with an emphasis on the potential for personal as well as academic development. I am an adaptive tutor skilled at relating the work to the student's own experiences, ensuring they establish their own academically applicable opinions, ideas and approaches. I'm a meticulous problem solver and am able to pinpoint areas that need attention, particularly in essays, coursework and presentation work. I'm a natural entertainer but always maintain focus on the task at hand, offering insightful, productive and engaging tuition sessions to my students.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2009 and work as a manager tutoring maths part time. I work shifts so I'm generally available at any time throughout the week and weekend. I'm friendly, enthusiastic and make my students feel at ease so they feel comfortable to ask for help with questions which they may not have the confidence to ask during classes at school.

Teaching Experience:

Seven years tutor experience with pupils from year 8 up to adult learners. The majority of my students have been studying for their GCSE's.

There are many teachers on here which may be perfect for some children as a tutor. I am not a qualified teacher however all of my previous students have selected me for that sole reason - so their child has a tutor and not a teacher to help them with their maths. They have all felt instantly relaxed with me, more inclined to ask questions and extremely driven to prove themselves.

Reference available upon request

Tutoring Approach:

Every child is different so it's explaining a topic in a way that makes sense to them rather then the way the teacher wants them to learn. If the child feels relaxed with the tutor they are more likely to understand something rather then just feel under pressure to say they understand.

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 a BSc degree in Psychology and an additional qualification in TEFL.

I am bilingual (Arabic and English) and enjoy teaching Arabic language.

I have an interest in Arabic culture and have recently written a book of Sudanese Arabic proverbs.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 16 years experience in teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language to children and adults.

Most of my teaching has been at an international primary school but I also enjoy teaching individuals and small groups.

I enjoy the creative aspects of teaching and believe that learning a language should be a fun experience. I have designed several course books for learning Sudanese Arabic.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning Arabic can be reinforced through using visual aids and playing games.

I prefer to teach children and women.

I teach Arabic from a secular viewpoint. I do not have the knowledge to teach religious terminology or extracts from the Quran.

Personal Description:
I am a current Materials Science DPhil (PhD) student at the University of Oxford. I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge, with degrees of Master of Natural Sciences and Bachelor of Arts (honoured, First Class). I did Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science. In my A-Levels, I obtained A* in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. I have DBS check available if requested.

Teaching Experience:

Since September 2014, I have been tutoring students (from primary school to GCSE, A-Levels and university level) in one-to-one sessions for one year, in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. I helped my students by explaining new concepts, working through examples and past papers. I was also a member of the Study Aid Society at Cambridge, where we shared academic information and learning experiences with each other and students in junior years on a regular basis. During my A-Level years, I also had two years' experience of tutoring junior students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am good at helping tutees solve problems, e.g. worked examples, past paper questions, and I am happy to adjust as needed. I also help to revise and polish Personal Statements for college application as an additional service, for which I am also a member of a qualified education agency.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced sociology tutor and proofreader having taught in the sociology department at the University of Warwick for four years and also for a short while in the School of Languages and Social Sciences at the University of Aston. (I can also tutor at this level in modern history, politics and international relations). I have BA in sociology and politics from Oxford Brookes University and an MSc in social science research methods from Sussex. I have also recently and successfully completed my doctorate at the University of Warwick. In addition to my university work, I have tutored for a private agency (where I held an advanced CRB certificate) at A-level in sociology, politics and modern history. I have a good record of helping A-level students to achieve the grades they require for a place in higher education and I have continued this success whilst tutoring independently in the north east where I have now lived for for the last year.

At A-level I am happy to help with essay writing and subject research and prep for exams. Please contact me early in your studies though (early in the academic year, as early intervention has greater rewards...).For undergraduates, I can offer advice on essay and dissertation construction and also on writing style and format. Additionally, I can help to formulate ideas for research projects and can proof read long or short drafts.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at A-level and taught at undergraduate level for 7 years.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is simple: I help to give students the skills and knowledge they require to achieve their goals in education.

Personal Description:
I am doing A Levels at the Liverpool Blue Coat School, currently studying geography, maths, chemistry and biology to attain A and A* grades at A level. At GCSE I achieved 6A* 5A's, with strong A* grades in the subjects I carried on at A level. I have demonstrated negotiating and organising skills, a firm sense of responsibility and my capacity hard work under pressure. I possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and am able to relate to wide range of people as proven by my varied experiences. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and believe I have a friendly, approaching personality which makes me able to communicate with children of all ages. In my free time I enjoy playing a lot of cricket and football.

Teaching Experience:

In the past years, I have had 2 weeks of work experiences in Primary School where I have delivered some interactive lessons. I have delivered maths lesson to a year 8 class in Blue Coat School, which have been proven to be very enjoyable for both the students and I. I deliver weekly lessons to year 7s at Blue Coat and I am currently tutoring year 9 with Maths in order to help his achieve his targeted level. As well as this, I have a younger siblings who I regularly help with homework (two are in secondary school and one is in primary school).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that virtually all students are motivated in one way or another. One student may be keenly interested in classroom subject matter and seek out challenging course work, participate actively in class discussions, and earn high marks on assigned projects. However there are some students who need an extra push and need to develop better understanding around the topic in order for them to achieve the desire grades they want. With my experience, I am here to provide a positive learning environment for students where no question is a stupid question and I believe I have the potential to help the students achieve their very best potential as proved by my past success in tutoring younger pupils.

I am specialised for entrance exam tutoring (in particular all grammar school in Merseyside) as I have helped many children in the past to get into Liverpool Blue Coat School. I have volunteered in the Blue Coat School entrance exam which allows me to have a brief idea of what can come up in the exam.

I always have the right knowledge for success in a certain subject
I can spot where a personal student's weaknesses and strength lies
I also help the students to achieve some self-belief and confidence in their learning to keep them motivated

Personal Description:
I am and have always been passionate about both learning and the arts. I believe they are very closely linked. I attended Norwich University of the Arts where I studied Textile Design. I now work as a college lecturer and illustrator in my own time. I am a reliable, fun and enthusiastic person.

Teaching Experience:

College of West Anglia -

2016-Present

Teaching within a department for students with a vast variety of special educational needs. My students have abilities ranging from severe to mild learning difficulties. I teach on a variety of courses such as Level 1 Art and Design and Becoming Independent. This can involve lessons in enterpise skills, financial literacy, independent living and literacy.

I also work part-time as a Learning Support Officer in the same department, supporting students with a range of learning issues including Autism, Dyslexia, Communication problems and Cerebral Palsy.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everybody has the right to learn regardless of barriers that may be in their way. I see tutoring as something that is very much based around the learner, moulding the sessions into a process from which they recieve maximum opportunites for learning (based on their needs).

I think that instilling confidence in learners is the key to encouraging success.
