Personal Description:
Originally from Newcastle, I am now an actor and enjoy tutoring alongside my acting work. I have worked in TV, and also in theatre, including venues such as The National Theatre and the West End. Especially with younger students, I like to keep my lessons creative and practical. I studied English and Drama at Bristol University and then went on to train at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Recently, I have been tutoring in English, Drama, 11+ Common Entrance exams and general Primary school help.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for over 6 years. Alongside my tutoring, I am currently teaching Music and Drama in schools and I run workshops with Sixth Formers on ways of analysing texts practically.

7+ - I worked with Elektra (6) preparing her for 7+ Examinations. Covering English, Maths and Reasoning focussed on entry to Notting Hill and Ealing High School.

7+ - Working with Harry on English, Maths and exam technique, focussing him for 7+ exam for Dulwich Prep School. Harry has traits of both dyslexia and dyspraxia.

7+ - I work with Jules on his English. Jules is French and has just started attending a French school, so we are working to keep his English up to scratch. Main areas of focus are: speaking, spelling, listening/understanding and grammar.

7+ - Working with Charlie mainly on English, increasing his confidence in all areas but focussing on Writing, Grammar and Punctuation, and Comprehension.

11+ - Working with Guy on English and Maths one day a week. Mainly focussed on Guy's writing and spelling. Guy is preparing for entry to Westminster and Eton Schools.

11+ - I worked with Ingrid on English and Maths in preparation for exams for Notting Hill and Ealing High School, Francis Holland and Godolphin and Latymer Schools. Ingrid went to her first choice of Notting Hill and Ealing High.

11+ - I worked with Olivia in preparation for her Common Entrance exams on all papers (English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning) as well as interview practice. Olivia is now attending North London Collegiate School (her first choice) but I also prepared her for entrance to Highgate School for Girls, City of London School for Girls and Queen's College.

Primary Help - I worked with brothers Teddy (7) and Alfie (10) mainly on English and Maths but also across all subjects generally to improve knowledge, confidence, spelling and vocabulary.

Primary Help - I worked with Rohan (10) on improving his confidence and basic skills in English and Maths. Rohan was very inquisitive and keen but needed help focussing and answering the specific questions that he was being asked.

A Level English Literature (AQA) - worked with Oliver (17) helping with coursework on The Great Gatsby and the poetry of Keats and Larkin. Oliver achieved an A grade.

AS Level Drama (AQA) - helped Yasmin to explore the analysis of texts of Lady Windermere's Fan and A View From The Bridge in preparation for exams, in which she achieved an A.

GCSE English Literature - tutored Amy in preparation for coursework and exams. Texts: Lord of The Flies and A View From The Bridge.

SKYPE - I teach Pietro (11) English as a Second Language weekly online.

Home Schooling - Inigo (6 when I started) had been getting reports of generally dropping behind in class work with a lack of concentration. I homeschooled him every Friday for two terms. He was having particular trouble in English and Maths. Inigo was struggling especially with English, in all areas, and was most behind with Spelling and Grammar. For him to engage, I had to be both creative (to keep him interested) but also quick as the plan was to get him into Kew Green Primary for the next academic year. We covered the basics of year 1 and ironed out any problems (also to give him confidence with the things he could do) and then went onto year 2. I would use a lot of what he was naturally interested in (football and particular comic book characters) in the teaching to keep his attention. With Maths, Inigo could do simple addition and subtraction but struggled when getting into 2 digits, multiplication, or any sort of wordy problem where the sum to be done was not absolutely clear. So, again, we covered the basics and then pushed on. He worked really hard and eventually we were looking forward to things he may encounter next year. At first Inigo was quite reluctant to work but I managed to win him over and build up a good rapport for productive days of homeschooling. Thankfully, he gained a place at Kew Green, and we were delighted! (Though it did mean, unfortunately, that he didn't need me any more...).

English for Foreign Learners - Helped 8 year old Augustinos (Greek) with reading and homework to improve English, as well as taking him on educational trips around London.

Drama (practical) - Coached Emily (21) and Hannah (20) with acting lessons in preparation for Drama School Entry auditions. Emily has now trained at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and Hannah is training at LAMDA.

Voice and Elocution - Helped Law Student Amar (20) with speechmaking and projection for use in debating.

SEN - worked with Dean (20), a law student with dyslexia, upon exam preparation and practice.

Tutoring Approach:

I will tailor whatever I teach to my pupil's needs. I am very easy to get along with and very open to how you think you or your child will best learn. Above all I would want a pupil to look forward to my sessions with them so will make sure that they are practical, interesting and varied. Especially with the younger students I teach I think that lessons need to be fun to keep them excited about learning! If you have any questions at all or specific enquiries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Personal Description:
I am 56 years old, am a qualified teacher with 15 years experience. I am an easy-going reliable person who likes to make my students feel at ease at all times.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching seconday school students since qualifying in 1998. I have had two full-time posts, worked as a supply teacher as well as having private students. I have worked in Inner London, Outer London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire schools. I have also worked in France at a small private school during the '80's, predominantly teaching adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach French using the native tongue as much as possible. I use my own resources although I use the Internet for ideas whenever it's suitable.
For Maths I follow the syllabus laid down by whichever examining board the student is using and resources come from a wide variety of places usually from where I have recently been teaching. I gather information from colleagues who sometimes have great ideas. I like to be able to go through past papers with students marking work as we go through a course.

Personal Description:
I am a successful, elite tutor and lecturer, and have taught a variety of school, undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD students. I have worked with pupils in both private and state education, many of my A-level students have gone on to university including: UCL, St Andrews, Cambridge (Christ, Clare, Selwyn, Trinity College), Oxford (Balliol, Merton, Hertford), Princeton and L'Ecole normale supérieure, Paris.

I have studied a broad range of subjects during my Bachelor's degree (English and Classics, RHUL) and Master's (Comparative Art and Archaeology with Law, UCL). I play a lot of sport (lacrosse, rugby and athletics) and have captained teams at national and regional level.

Please note the history tuition I offer is Ancient History, Classics, Archaeology and Classical Civilizations.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced tutor who can help students meet elite standards for university grades or entry, but am also enthutiastic and supportive; able to work with students seeking to consoldate on their current grade standards.

Tutoring Approach:

Academic experience: I have worked in private tutoring, state and private schools, university departments and know how examiners mark and what they expect. I have worked for 2 prestigious Universities and am adept at entrance documents and applications. In addition, one needs to be constantly aware of the changing curricula, mark schemes, and student specifications, knowledge and understanding of which can guarantee a 95%+ grade.

Encouragement: As a sports captain and Global Citizenship Mentor (UCL) I realise the need for a pupil's confidence to be built up before they can achieve better. In my opinion a pupil is never failing, they can just achieve more.

Planning: It is essential for us to have an organised lesson plan, and plan for our future sessions so we can map where we should be heading and what we have achieved. Many students suffer from poor organisation which, if remedied, would immediately proffer far better results.

Education: During my past 8 years of college, undergraduate and graduate university I have been educated in a host of valuable disciplines that help interest and inspire any student.

Personal Description:
I am have graduated with a First Class degree Actuarial Science at London School of Economics.
I have achieved A*A*A*A in my recent A Level results and have also represented my country in various mathematics competition which include me winning an Honourable Mention in Asia Pacific Mathematics Olympiad.
Have also achieved Gold Medal in National Physics Competition in my country.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously volunteered with the Salvation Army and had taught GCSE students over there. Overall it went quite well and I saw improvement in their ability to answer questions and attitude towards the subject.
I have also been an assistant Mathematics Olympiad coach. This job required me to lecture some of the best students in Malaysia so that they can score well in national competitions.
Thus, I believe I am able to teach students of different abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually start with the basics. I believe that with a good basic, the student would then be able to improve him/herself to be better instead of just idly solving a question and showing the steps to the student.
Also, I would try to include real life application if its possible so that the student remain interested and understand more about the things being studied.

Personal Description:
Hi! I'm in my final year of a French and Italian degree at UKC, where I'm reading lots of novels and writing essays on them! Last year I studied at universities in Geneva, Switzerland, and Bologna, Italy, where I also travelled. When I'm not in the library or a seminar, I love to cook, read, and write, I have my own blog. I can tutor in French, Italian, and English, up to A Level. I'm also willing to travel around North Kent, about 45 minutes outside of Canterbury, and tutor over email and webcam. We can cover anything on your course, from basic grammar and vocabulary to A Level cultural topics and speaking exams. Get in touch and we can see what would work best for you.

Teaching Experience:

At sixth form I helped several friends with their GCSE Italian work (they all achieved at least an A grade) and helped my younger sister with both her GCSE French work and her GCSE History coursework, for which she achieved and A* grade. When I was studying in Italy I also took a course on teaching languages to Primary School Children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is simple: start with the very basics and build on these once they are secure. I will help with homework and coursework as well as practice for exams. I am also happy to provide materials such as grammar exercises and mark these.

Personal Description:
I am a higher level TA with ten years of teaching experience. I am 28 years old and I am currently working with young people up to the age of 18 with RMBC and I also work with young people with disabilities.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in primary education for ten years. I have worked as a one to one with children with Special Educational Needs and developed my skills training to be a Higher level Teaching Assistant.
Throughout my time in Primary education, I have worked effectively with teams in Key Stage one and two. Due to my extensive experience and educational background I often cover for teachers. I am able to confidently teach from a given plan, adapting the teaching where required and utilising support staff effectively. I have a solid understanding of the essential skills and learning outcomes and have used this knowledge to support children where necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a personalised learning approach. The activities I use are dependent on the child and the way they learn. I understand that children can learn visually, kineasthetically or can be auditory learners. Therefore I adapt my teaching and my activities to suit the learner.

Personal Description:
I am Philosophy Graduate with a passion for ideas and critical thinking. I have written articles for a variety of blogs and delivered lectures to an academic audience.

In the past I have also worked in as a freelance musician and an IT technician.

Everything I do is influenced by my passion for ideas and my desire to convey them to others, a conscientious work ethic and lively sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first foray into academic tutoring, I have previously taught Judo at senior and junior levels. In addition, I have been responsible for helping people improve their IT skills when I worked for The Department For Work and Pensions.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to meet every individual where they are in their journey of learning, rather than impose preconceived ideas on them. I try and find out how each student learns and in light of this tailor my teaching to fit them.

I always try to keep things fun and interesting as people achieve more when they are engaged an excited. I avoid pointless jargon and needless technicality.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Jake

I am an experienced photographer/videographer with many years of practice, I have a degree from Nottingham Trent University along with a video production company called Capture the Guru. Over the years I have worked in many different areas of both disciplines, finding myself specialising in architectural photography and music based videography.

I have in-depth knowledge in both practical skills and in the psychology of interpreting images and video, this allows me to not only teach you how to take and record quality material, along with how to work with it in post-production but to also consider how your work will be received.

However most importantly I want to take the interest that you have currently and give you the skills to truly produce material to be proud of, along with further instilling the enjoyment that is so important.

Teaching Experience:

I have not had much formal teaching experience as of yet, however I have taught a fair few people tricks in order for them to produce better snaps. Whilst I was studying me and a group of friends on the course banded together to help teach each other the parts we struggled with, I was always very apt with the technical side of photography and would teach the others how to used different forms of cameras and how to emulate specific styles that we were learning about.

Now however since working within video my colleague and me are constantly teaching each other new tricks whilst filming and editing.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is simple, to discover the level of enjoyment and enhance it. We can all become frustrated when the need to produce our ideas is limited by our current knowledge and when it comes to mediums like photography and videography a practical hands-on lesson far surpasses any online tutorial.

I am a very hand-on and location based teacher, Instead of giving you material to read I want to show you techniques, allow you to feel what it is like to be searching for an image you may not fully understand.

Personal Description:
A First Class Masters Graduate in Civil Engineering from City University London, currently working as a Graduate Highway Engineer for the major international engineering firm Jacobs. As an Engineer, my role is primarily to solve problems, which I believe is a valuable skill to have at any level, something I wish to pass on to my students.I am more than happy to spend my hours out of work as a Maths and Eleven+ tutor. I have a huge passion for teaching. I believe I have a vast array of experience and knowledge to offer. As well as a strong background in maths, you can see form my studies I am also a keen artist and therefore love to use my creativity in teaching. I'm an extremely well organised individual and have in the past set up my own volunteering organisation for students.

Teaching Experience:

I have a range of experience in tutoring Maths for GCSE and A level students, as well as experience in tutoring students at foundation degree level. I have in particular worked with struggling students in the past, helping them from limited understanding to gaining a great degree of confidence and enthusiasm pre-examination. I also act as a professional mentor for an undergraduate student at City University, helping to develop essential life skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very easy going and honest person, eager to make learning fun and enthusiastic about teaching. I believe it is important for my students not to just learn but to understand. I am very flexible and able to adapt my teaching style to fit the ability of my student.

I am open minded and can relate to all different types of students and able to adapt my teaching style accordingly. I realize that there are many different forms of learning, broken down more primarily into visual and auditory as such. In modern society today, our concentration spans are consistently decreasing. The approach I like to take is to be demonstrative. This allows my students to engage with the subject, use their imagination and practical thinking. In turn, the students are more enthusiastic about learning and in this way more likely to understand the concepts as opposed to going through the motions. I always do my absolute best to maximize the potential of all my students.

My vision is for my students to not feel as if studying is a chore, but something they look forward to on a daily basis.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and very experienced primary school teacher who loves working with children to help them achieve the best they possibly can. I can provide you with a reliable, friendly and flexible service supporting your child with maths, reading, writing, phonics or speaking and listening. I treat each child as an individual and aim to make each tuition session enjoyable and successful, connecting the learning with your child's interests where possible, and always giving plenty of encouragement and praise.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified teacher who has taught locally in primary education for 21 years before more recently starting to home tutor children. I have successfully taught children with a wide range of abilities, children with special educational needs and children learning English as an additional language.

I have also had responsibility for leading the teaching of English across the year groups (speaking and listening, reading, writing and phonics).

Tutoring Approach:

I would come to your home for the tuition sessions, providing a familiar setting for your child's learning on a one to one basis.

Current parents and pupils with whom I work testify to my friendly, high quality professional approach and the difference that I can make. All tuition is specifically tailored to each child to help build their confidence whilst being as creative as possible to help them enjoy their learning. In this way I will also guide your child through the steps needed to improve their understanding and to gain confidence in their knowledge, skills and abilities.

Tutoring is available for children being homeschooled as well as for children requiring a little extra help out of school hours - term time and during school holidays.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a very friendly and easy- going person who will go the extra mile in every way. I have a good sense of humour and get on well with people of all ages. I'm very enthusiastic and outgoing. I love learning new things and this comes through in any teaching that I do.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching primary aged children for 5 years and am now lead of English. I have raised standards in reading and writing in both my current school and past schools by leading English.

I have A's in A-level English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Whilst I did not choose to teach this age as a career, I have recently tutored in physics where my 'tutee's' predicted grade has risen from a D to 4 marks off an A, in just 11 weeks!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a thorough and comprehensive understanding of how both children and adults learn- I am quick to gauge different learning styles and therefore sessions will be individualised in their approach. I will bring personalised resources and provide extra work in between sessions if this would be welcomed. I will ensure that rapid and quick progress is made. I always go the extra mile, I love teaching and will do everything within my power to ensure success!

Personal Description:
Having recently just graduated from the University of Leeds with a qualifying 2:1 law degree, I am now living back at home in St. Helens, Merseyside. I work weekdays as a graduate paralegal at a law firm, but in my spare time I would love to tutor people whose position I was in not very long ago. At college I did Law, English Language, Sociology and Geography. Law was my strongest subject which encouraged me to study it at University. I am extremely easy to get along with and have a real bubbly, down to earth personality.

Teaching Experience:

I have no teaching experience; however, as a recent graduate, what I do have is a big understanding of how difficult and daunting it can be to balance work time and down time. I have a great amount of patience and due to my love for Law, I feel I could teach what I know with great compassion and enthusiasm. I take pleasure in helping others and would go above and beyond to help someone reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

Having studied Law for five years, I understand how much case law, facts and dates need to be retained. I would be able to show students the methods I used to help me remember such information as part of exam preparation. It's also key to problem solve and go through questions methodically and systematically, triggering cases as you go along. Past papers are a good way to do this, thus I could provide some of those and we would work through those together. At A-level I did Criminal Law, Tort Law and Contract law, so would feel most at ease teaching those subjects. I also got a 2:1 in all those modules at University and completed my dissertation in the field of Criminal Law.

Subjects
  • Law
  • A-Level or Highers (£9 p.h.)
