Personal Description:
I have a life-long love of English in general and of Shakespeare in particular, and have always enjoyed communicating that enthusiasm to other people, helping them to develop understanding, confidence, appreciation and a love of language. I have an MA degree in English from Cambridge University and am an IGCSE examiner for the Cambridge International Examinations Board.

My early background in retail management, several years at director level in international advertising, then thirty years as a teacher, with theatre running as a constant thread throughout my life, all combine to make me a particularly effective communicator.

As well as offering private tuition, I also run school drama workshops, direct plays, and work as a freelance writer/editor and voice-over. I have been involved in over fifty theatrical productions - acting or directing - as well as giving regular readings and public presentations.

Having lived and worked professionally for several years in France, I am fluent in French and can offer coaching in French literature and language.

"Simon is the complete professional, directing and managing large-scale productions, nurturing emerging talent, and running a very successful education programme, as well as being an inspirational teacher himself." (Arnold D. - former colleague)

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Head of English and Drama at independent schools for over twenty-five years, and am regarded as a charismatic and inspirational teacher. I have many years' experience of Drama in general and Shakespeare in particular on and off stage (studying, teaching, acting and directing).

"Every pupil has selective memories of their teachers. Every past pupil I ever meet selects Simon as their most memorable teacher. They remember his effervescence in the classroom, his delight in their achievements and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Shakespeare." (Tim R. - colleague since 1987)

"Simon was simply a brilliant Head of Department, being that rare combination of high academic and able, articulate communicator. His subject knowledge is unmatched in all my teaching experience, especially of Shakespeare's works, and his inspired teaching produced enthusiastic, successful pupils during his twenty years." (Kay C. - colleague since 1998)

Tutoring Approach:

Need to gain more confidence with spoken or written language? Find Shakespeare hard to cope with, or poetry difficult to understand? Wish to develop your creative writing ability? Need to practise interview technique and improve presentation skills?

I can help. I give coaching in drama, literary analysis and practical criticism, particularly of poetry, and I specialise in teaching Shakespeare.

In addition, my earlier background in advertising and marketing is particularly useful in helping students develop their interview technique and presentation skills.

If distance is a problem, I am happy to offer on-line tuition, such as via Skype.

(For adults wishing to learn more about Shakespeare or to understand and appreciate poetic technique, I am happy to undertake small groups - please enquire about special rates.)

"Simon is an inspirational teacher of English Language, Literature and of Drama. His ability to engage and motivate pupils is of the highest order as is his pursuit of excellence in all that he does, both within the classroom situation and in workshops. All of this is well reflected in the results he has achieved, in particular with both academic English and Drama scholarship candidates over his years in post." (Dr Gerry H. - Managing Director Open University Worldwide)

Personal Description:
I have a degree in Pharmacology and a qualified teacher of Science from KS1 to KS5. I am also an examiner; I mark GCSE papers. I am a very hard working individual who is easily motivated and always ready to adapt and learn new skills. Having had various opportunities to carry out a variety of laboratory assessments as key components of my course, I am able to work as an individual or as part of a team. As a part of my degree I developed essential and transferable scientific skills. My project title was 'Synthesis and Biochemical Evaluation of Heat Shock Protein Hsp90 inhibitors on MCF-7 breast cancer cells'. Studies on how drugs are discovered, developed and used to treat disease gave me an understanding of how the human body functions and how drugs can be used to affect these functions. I have experience teaching from KS1 to KS5 and open university students. I enjoy travelling; visited New York, New Jersey, Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Nigeria. I get pleasure from working out at the gym regularly and I love swimming. I also enjoy studying christian books and other inspirational books.

Teaching Experience:

Currently at SEN school in Hampshire; previous experience at an inner city school in Portsmouth. It has 900 students on roll. I have over 6 years of experience working with people with challenging behaviour, dyslexia and autism. Currently I am teaching Key stage 3 and 4. Teaching pure Biology lessons to separate Science; Physics, Chemistry and Biology to core and Additional Science students. For key stage 3 I have followed the QCA guidelines and for key stage 4 the WJEC examination board. I have written schemes of work for year 11 students to cover additional Sciences and rewrote schemes of work to meet the recent curriculum changes key stage 3 and 4. I was also involved in producing resources to be shared in the department about hydrocarbons, polymers, smart materials, ammonia fertilizers and many other kS3 topics.

Prior to this experience my first teaching placement during my PGCE year was at a mixed comprehensive with approximately 900 students on role. I taught Biology, Chemistry and Physics at key stage 3 and team taught for key stage 4. This prepared me well for my second placement where I taught all three Sciences across both key stages. My second placement was also at a mixed comprehensive school with approximately 600 students on roll. I also was involved in Individual Student Assessments (ISA). Additionally as a trainee teacher I regularly was involved in school base activities to encourage students. I was a Student Ambassador for Portsmouth University. It gave me a lot of personal satisfaction and developed my communication skills. I also attended the University of East London gifted and talented day in 2008; which was attended by a number of schools from the borough of Redbridge. It was an inspiring day of learning and fun and I have taken elements from that day into my classroom practice today.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to first of all find out my students weaknesses and turn it into their strengths; I feel that the study of Neuropharmacology as part of my undergraduate degree in Pharmacology was very relevant to teaching. I have a secured subject knowledge with all three Sciences. I also like to bring the best of people, by being patient and understanding. I have the ability to cope and work under pressure, understanding of the challenges that need overcoming to learn, ability to take ownership of material and adapt it to suit the learning styles and approach of individual.

Personal Description:
Cambridge graduate offering private tuition in Latin, English (literature and language), and Politics.

I specialize in coaching students through GCSE/A level. However, I am happy to help all students from 11+ and even adult learners.

I graduated with a degree in English from the University of Cambridge (Girton College) in 2008 and in 2010 completed a Masters in Medieval Literature and History at the University of York.

During both of my degrees, I took a number of papers in Latin language and literature.

I also have 'A' grades in A-level Latin, English Literature, History, and Politics. And (going back a few years now!) achieved 10 A* at GCSE.

I currently work in publishing.

Teaching Experience:

Since moving to London in 2010 I have tutored students preparing for public examinations in Latin, Politics, and English (both language and literature). I've had great success in helping students of a range of abilities improve subject confidence and achieve exceptional results.

During the academic year 2008-2009 I worked as a boarding house tutor at Sherborne International College. My duties included aiding the students with their academic work, P.E. teaching, English language teaching, and general pastoral care.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:

Puzzled by perfect participles?
Confused by conjugations?
...and what on earth is a gerundive?

Let's face it, studying Latin can be difficult, but it is the challenge which makes it such a rewarding subject.

My approach to teaching Latin is to develop translation skills whilst reinforcing the key building blocks of grammar. I endeavour to work at the student's own pace and tailor my sessions to complement school work.

English:

I hope that my passion for English will encourage students to develop their own skills in the subject. I have spent the last 5 years of my life studying and responding to texts and enjoy sharing my knowledge and insight.

It is difficult to offer a single "approach to tutoring" as I believe the right teaching method depends entirely on the interests, level, and personality of the individual student.

I am happy to accept students preparing for GCSE, AS, or A level examinations. My philosophy is that exam success relies on a combination of close understanding of the text, ability to respond independently, and proper exam technique.

Interviews:

I am also available to tutor students preparing for university entrance interviews (in particular Oxbridge). Having experienced the process first-hand, I feel I am well positioned to offer meaningful advice on how a candidate can impress during the application and interview process. I am willing to conduct mock interviews.

  • A-Level or Highers (£40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Marc and I teach self defence moves/techniques that work under fear induced situations, are natural movements using body mechanics and can been taught in a short space of time. I teach the best tried and tested self defence methods that can be incorporated into existing disciplines or used solely to enable individuals to successful defend themselves.
I was a boxer for 10 years with 2 of them being at a professional level.
As well as being a Self Defence Instructor, I am also a Service Delivery Manager, Parent Governor, recurve Archer, Records/Tournaments officer for Archery club, devoted Husband and Father or 2 beautiful daughters.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Natural Self Defence for 6 years on a one to one basis or in groups of 2 to 20 people. I offer to train people, 1-2-1 or in small groups, in their own homes so traveling to my course is not a problem. I have been a Manager within I.T for 22 years where I have had to teach all levels of personnel (from engineers to senior executives). Training includes technical, managerial, financial, procedural and personal development e.g. confidence building, goal setting, assertiveness and career progression.

Tutoring Approach:

I use handouts to enable people to take notes at particular sections of the training and also encourage open discussions on techniques, moves and legal implications of our actions. Each move is explained in detail and reasons why particular approaches are recommended.
Each week the previous weeks instructions are gone through and discussed in case a question has been thought of between sessions.
I encourage note taking whilst training to ensure the moves are not only phyiscally carried out/remembered but also mentally committed to memory.

Personal Description:
Although I now have a PGCE in mathematics I have been lucky enough to get the chance to apply my skills in maths and physics whilst working as an engineer in the automotive and white goods industries. It gave me the opportunity to travel abroad and to get involved with companies such as Dyson, Jaguar, Austin Martin and then even allowed me to watch rockets being built in Russia.
I trained engineers and factory workers in the use of mathematical and physics based subjects. Some of those I taught had jobs which involved predominantly manual skills and so they were a little rusty when applying mathematical techniques. This makes me appreciate the nervousness some adults have when presented with a subject they may not have touched since leaving school.
After leaving the engineering world I had a brief spell working as a trainer in the insurance arena and then finally ended up teaching mathematics in secondary schools.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a manufacturing engineer for 8 years and then I taught engineers and factory workers for 10 years in the use of techniques involving mathematics and physics. After leaving the engineering world I trained adults to use a mainframe software program and then I went on to become a secondary school mathematics teacher. Finally I started tutoring from home working with various types of pupils. Some pupils have special needs, whilst others are working towards an A grade in their A levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to know why the tutee wishes to study. It may be to improve their confidence or to pass an exam. This will then shape the nature of the tutoring sessions. My focus is to provide people with the knowledge that is most useful to them and their aspirations.

Personal Description:
Of my Law, Sociology and Maths students 25% attained an A*and 35% attained an A grade last year. I have extensive experience delivering the year 7 to 11 math curriculum to both children and adults, Law and Sociology at all levels. I hold a Law degree, a PGCE, a teaching qualification for the delivery of Maths, a Masters degree in Sociology of Education and am currently studying for a PhD in Sociology of Education. Very friendly and able to identify the individual learning needs of my students.

Teaching Experience:

During my six years of employment in schools and colleges, I have taught AS/A2 Law and Sociology to students aged 16 - 19 and Maths to younger learners. Students have consistently attained grades that rival private sector provision. In my role I hope to improve the prospects of students who desire places at university. Further to this I have tutored Law and Sociology at undergraduate level, ensuring students attain 2.1 outcomes.

My specialist areas of interest are international law, European union law, human rights, discrimination policy, religious freedoms/speech, reform and sociology.

Tutoring Approach:

I have received three consecutive `excellent` reports on my practice in the classroom.

I deliver lessons that are prepared with up to date knowledge of developments in the law and case studies often contain a Welsh dimension. Hand-outs and PowerPoint resources will always accompany lessons.

Prefer to keep things informal and friendly. Prefer to deliver in 2-3 hour teaching blocks.

Personal Description:
I'm a 23-year-old graduate of the University of Cambridge, having recently completed my studies and earning a First-Class Honours degree in Natural Sciences (Physics) with a Merit at the Masters course in Mathematics. Have lived in Leeds for a while, moving to Edinburgh to work on a PhD at the end of the Summer. Am keen on sharing my knowledge and experience with the next generation.

Teaching Experience:

Have spent two separate periods of two weeks volunteering at a local high school and assisting in Maths lessons. Worked with students of all ages and abilities from Years 7 through to 13, and gave presentations about my work at University.

Tutored one student between November 2012 and April 2013 with positive feedback. A reference is not yet available. I have worked in the past with several students during lessons, and also spent one hour with a student that helped life her GCSE maths grade from B to A. In addition have prepared several fully-worked and explained answers to questions posted online (links available on request).

Tutoring Approach:

I try to ensure that the student is guided through the subject as clearly as possible, with a lot of questions asked of the student when appropriate, that hopefully will allow him/her to think through the topic for themselves. In addition I aim to provide a clear understanding of why the topic being studied is important/ where it allows us to end up, and so on.

Personal Description:
I've had a passion for Maths from as far back as I can remember and my philosophy is that if you enjoy a subject, then you will become good at it. I came to live in Poole after spending most of my early life in the Portsmouth area. I love travelling and walking as well as most sports. My qualifications include a degree in Mathematics and a PGCE in secondary education. I am willing to come to your home or Skype - whatever is the more convenient or appropriate to suit the needs of the tutee. In terms of travelling to you, I am prepared to drive to your home free of charge, up to 7.5 miles away.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in numerous secondary schools in both the independent and state sectors during the past sixteen years. I currently teach at Poole Grammar School where one of my roles has been Manager of the Dorset Further Maths Centre. A significant part of this role involved teaching a range of students many A level modules in their own schools where they had limited A Level/ Further Maths provision. As a result, I am very familiar with teaching all board specifications at both A Level (including Further Maths) and GCSE. I can provide tuition for C1-4, FP1, S1&2, D1&2 and M1 plus any aspect of GCSE. I have an excellent record for gaining outstanding grades for my students at both A Level and GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in building a good relationship with my students so as to understand their needs and aspirations. I am patient and approachable and always encouraging. I love my job as a teacher and hope to enthuse my tutees as much as possible. I hope to impart my knowledge and passion of maths to whoever wants to learn and improve. I will always endeavour to give good value for money.

Personal Description:
I did my undergraduate degree at St Andrews University and postgrad at Durham University; I've just returned from a year on research in the US. I love teaching and work for the Open University, which involves finding innovative ways to teach a large range of topics to students from 18 to 70 years old, which always makes for an interesting experience. I'm living in Newcastle and love the North East in general.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching at degree level since 2002, I have over 250 hours of face-to-face teaching experience.

I also have a Durham Teaching and Learning Award, a peer- and student- nominated annual prize given to 3-5 teachers in the university to recognise outstanding achievement.

I've taught in both the Philosophy and Theology & Religion departments of Durham University, as well as teaching Introductions to Arts & Humanities for the Open University. I frequently teach study skills and help address specific students' concerns about how to improve.

My experience also includes work in the Access/Widening Participation arena, and I have taught a variety of topics for the 14-18 age range, including work on the Sutton Trust Summer School programme.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is best summed up as "everyone is different". Finding out what someone enjoys, what they're good at, and how they think, is the first step in helping them get the most they can out of any topic or situation. The ways that people learn, and the things that fire their imaginations, are diverse - but the expectations of coursework and exams don't always recognise that. I see my job as not simply preparing people to pass a test or master a skill, but as helping them to discover what works best for them as a student, and giving them the confidence to approach new challenges successfully.

Personal Description:
I am working in the NHS as a research unit co-ordinator. I have studied B.Sc in Biochemistry and have Masters degree in Biomedical science with management studies from Kingston university London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science in a secondary school as a science teacher. At present I tutor up to GCSEs. I have 5 years of experience of tutoring within the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

Good communication and interaction is the key to understanding and learning. I make sure that my student understands the topic before proceeding to the next one.
I would prefer students to have the right textbooks so that they can be given additional practice questions as homework. It will also enable the students to work independently.
At present, I tutor from home only.

Personal Description:
I can help with the new GCSE/GCE exams and Brighton College and Westminster School scholarship coaching are recent successes. I am also a former Advanced Skills Teacher with many years of experience working in a comprehensive school with all abilities from GCSE to A levels / Oxbridge entrance. My key priority is to provide a safe learning setting where the learner and my starting point is always to be where the learner is rather than a fixed programme in advance.

Enhanced DBS / CRB status February 2014

Clearly you will need to know if this will be the right arrangement for you, so the first lesson is free with no commitment to continue.

If your child has the potential, I can enable him or her to achieve the highest grades: knowing what the exam requires you to do will make a difference

Teaching Experience:

I have coached a pupil who gained a scholarship for Brighton College and another who was awarded the Queen's Scholarship to enter Westminster School, London. In both cases exams tested a whole range of traditional skills set at a relatively demanding level for this age group. Future candidates would be welcome to contact me.

Prior to this, I have taught pupils from 11 years upwards to Advanced Level pupils heading for Oxbridge. I have worked as an examiner for an exam board, set and marked papers at GCSE and taught adults in evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

Tuition offered via Skype which offers greater flexibility of timings, lengths of lesson etc as well benefits for teaching using Google docs which record lesson progress, better use of resources etc.

Tuition also offered in student's home within Brighton if required or a mix of the above

On-line tasks can be set in between lessons to practise skills learnt.

Lively approach including games where appropriate.

Teaching linked to the exam board specification you are working towards including specific skills at GCSE / A level.

Grammar taught relevant to your needs: to include the new course requirements when published.

Feedback after each session to parents/ guardian or carer if requested to include likely grade potential at GCSE / A level or IB

A / AS / IB level students will work through short accessible texts to build up topic vocabulary but also support class tuition in your college or school.

Common Entrance Level candidates or specific entry exams for schools will receive very focused teaching to prepare for the exam.

Adult tuition for business or leisure.

I would be pleased to work with students in groups of 2 or 3 for a reduced fee per person.

Fees are a little higher than perhaps for other tutors, but you will be receiving a premium service with many more benefits than a session's tuition: every 10th lesson is free!

Personal Description:
I am a bilingual and bi-cultural French-American. I first came to Belfast in 2009 to study at Queens University. After obtaining my degree, I realized I wanted to stay in Northern Ireland and devote myself to befriending its lovely people, finding peace through its beautiful landscape and sharing my knowledge of the French and English language with an ever-growing swell of curious students.
I grew up in France, just west of Paris, and attended a very prestigious international school that boasts rigorous bilingual education. As a result, I am well versed in both French and English systems of education.
I am also the proud mother of a young boy who is also being brought up completely bilingual.
My interests include art (more of a passion, really), literature (particularly French novels) and food (growing up in France helped a lot!).

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching a small class of mature students in the Belfast area. They are at an intermediate level and find the material we explore in the classroom to be highly stimulating. Also currently, I am giving personalized French tuition to A-level students. In this manner, I am well familiar with the course syllabus for secondary school and have been smoothing out whatever difficulties pupils may have regarding exams.
My past experience as a French language tutor also includes teaching absolute beginners at the Language Centre in Queens University in Belfast.
I have also given private one to one tuition to students from all different walks of life and different proficiency levels; from post-graduates looking to brush up on their skills before a holiday or work placement in France to married couples wanting to learn the foundations of the language before relocating to the French countryside.
I am a qualified language teacher and have been awarded a TEFL certificate.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is purely student-centred. I believe that the student's needs should lead how the lessons are designed. In other words, I pay very close attention to my students' interests, levels, motivations, difficulties etc. in order to produce a course that will respond to their needs and help them find the meaning, direction and confidence they need to master the language. My lessons are highly personalized to ensure the student can relate to the material and be compelled to participate actively. My main objectives when teaching are to engage my students with stimulating material, challenge and encourage their natural aptitudes and finally, to reward their efforts through positive and constructive feedback.
I believe in everyone's ability to master any language so long as the teacher breathes life into the language and in so doing, sparks the pupil's curiosity, imagination, confidence and critical thought.

Personal Description:
I want to motivate and empower my pupils to help them become the best that they can be. After five years working in various financial analysis roles across London, I have spent the last two years working for myself as a consultant for charities, Escape Room owners and creative entrepreneurs and as a tutor as well. I enjoy any opportunities to help others achieve their goals.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring University students and adults in business subjects and Microsoft Excel for the past four years whilst working in Finance. Prior experience has also included children of ages 5-12 in groups and 1-1 tutoring at ages: 5-8 (for Maths and English) and 10 (for 11+ exams). Over the past year, I have taken on two students: an adult Saudi taking her Masters in Business and a 10 year old Lithuanian to whom I have been teaching English, Maths and interconnecting it with his interest in game design.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tuition largely to the needs of the student, depending on their requirements and working style. However, my preferred method is to split each session into covering material being learned at school and taking short practice tests to assess weak areas and revise for exams. While tutoring to any required curricula I will also try to instil the love of a subject into a student by guiding them to other fascinating areas of the subject and discovering areas of interests to support the subject's framework.

Personal Description:
Thanks for viewing my profile. I'm Jade, a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. I have language and teaching qualifications from China and the UK; and have more than 12 years experience of language teaching in both countries. I can provide patient tuition for learners of all age groups, from complete beginners, to experienced Mandarin speakers.

I love teaching, and use a range of learning materials, and approaches. I should be able to develop solutions to problems and find the way that works best for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have provided tuition in Mandarin Chinese to many native English speakers since I moved to the UK in 2014. My learners have been mostly adults and from various backgrounds, but also children and teenagers. They have included those learning for professional or academic reasons, and those simply interested in Chinese language and culture. Several have been having regular weekly or twice-weekly lessons with me for more than a year.
I have gained experience of the British educational system and teaching methods through acting as a volunteer teaching assistant in a college with modern language expertise. I have also studied for an Education and Training Award. Insights gained from this inform the approaches to teaching that I adopt.
In China, I worked at two language training schools in Harbin over a three-year period, and then I moved to Beijing. Here I taught children and teenagers for a year, and then for the next five years worked in a company that provided language training and IESOL tests to adults. I am now able to draw from my teaching experience in both countries when providing tuition in Mandarin.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my teaching to satisfy the individual needs of learners. This involves taking account of their reasons for learning Mandarin and their aspirations, and the learning styles that work best for them. Rather than stick rigidly to a standard course, I will vary the approaches to maintain interest and help with the learning process. Techniques can include question and answer sessions, use of flashcards, role-play, games, presentations, audio-visual materials and handouts.
If you are interested in learning Chinese, please contact me.

Q. How long do lessons last?

A. Each lesson lasts for one hour, for one and a half hours, or for two hours. For children under 10 years old, each lesson will last 45 minutes.

Q. Where do you teach?

A. I teach from home or via Skype.

Q. How do I pay the tuition?

A. Please pay by cash in advance. There will be a small discount if you pay for several lessons at once (more than five hours).

Q. Do you cater for advanced students?

A. Yes. If you speak Mandarin already and would like to brush up your skills, or gain a more advanced understanding, then I can design a course appropriate for you.

Q. Is it possible to book sessions outside of office hours?

A. Yes. Please contact me to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Q. Do you provide group-training sessions?

A. Yes. Please call for details.

Q. Do you teach online?

A. Yes. I also teach via Skype, QQ, WeChat.

Q. Do you provide telephone based training?

A. Yes. Please contact for details.
