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)

PLEASE NOTE: I am now largely unavailable until mid-July 2017 but do get in touch in case we can discuss possibilities.

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.)

Personal Description:
I completed Nuclear Power Engineering degree studies in 1990 after 6 years of training in Havana and Moscow. Between 1990 and 2004, I worked as a Biomedical researcher in the fields of Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Vaccine Development. This involves collaboration with many European and American research teams and working visits to leading Biomedical centres in UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and Spain including several UK Royal Society Fellowships and a UK Wellcome Trust International Travelling Post-doctoral Fellowship at Glasgow University Division of Immunology/Microbiology, which can be followed up by publication in peer-review scientific journals. Since 2006, I have been teaching Mathematics at GCSE and A-levels in the UK and currently, I am teaching at these levels plus International Baccalaureate Level. I have been an external marker (Mathematics in English and Spanish languages) for the International Baccalaureate Organisation for the last two years. Born in Cuba, Spanish is my mother tongue, thus i am able to tutor at any level in these two subjects: Mathematics and Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

In the last 4 years, I have had the opportunity to teach both in Scotland and England, thus I am familiar with mathematics teaching programmes in both locations. This include pupils at all stages of secondary education from 11-14 up to Advanced Highers/Advanced A-levels. It includes extensive tutoring practice with pupils preparing for GCSE(Standard Grade) and A(Higher) exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the role of a tutor is to encourage and guide pupils who are already interested to succeed in a particular topic. Thus, I would provide all the encouragement and academic support for them to achieve their top potential. In my experience over the years, I have observed over and over again, that pupils preparing for A/Higher levels exams show most difficulties linking contents taught in previous years(GCSE/Standard Grade) to the newer A/Higher level topics. Thus, I focus a good deal of attention to fill those gaps and develop both pupils' awareness of these connections and relevant knowledge and skills in such a way they are capable to perform independently achieving consistently a minimum of 70%-85% in practice papers prior to the actual exam date.

Personal Description:
Qualified Teacher Status since 2013 by the Department of Education and Leadership in UK.
University Bachelor's Degree in Teaching specialized in Foreign Languages.
City and Guilds Certificate to teach Adult learners

Teaching Experience:

Since I left University in 1999 I have been teaching all levels of Spanish courses. I have worked for Redbridge and Barking&Dagenham colleges of Adult Education , teaching GCSE,AS/A2 and Advanced Conversation Courses. I have an excellent record of one-to-one tutoring with a very successful exam results. I also have the opportunity to work as an examiner for one of the boards which has given me more insight into the expectations for Spanish GCSE exams.
Familiar with AQA and EDEXCEL examining boards and their controlled assesments

Tutoring Approach:

Spanish is an amazing language! I believe learners need to understand the grammar well as this aspect is essencial to get good grades in their final exams. One-to-one tuition is the support your children need to gain confidence and not to give up before the extreme pressure of their exams. Once this is achieved learners will perform much better!
Past paper exams are also a good tools to help learners to be familiar with the exam requirements.

Personal Description:
I'm a 26 year old Mathematics graduate from Bristol University. I spent my 3rd year abroad, studying maths on a French island off the east coast of Africa, and becoming fluent in French.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching all abilities and ages, and a good track record of results, with pupils always attaining or surpassing their targets.

Tutoring Approach:

In sessions I generally stick quite closely to the course, revisiting the school lessons and homework to target weak areas, whilst also working on a more thorough general understanding. When possible I let the tutee lead the session, so that they get the help they actually need, usually asking a few quick questions on any material skipped over to check for problems, but my teaching methods vary to suit my tutees.

View Jonathan's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I graduated from Worcester College, Oxford, where I got a Double First in Classics, doing a mixture of literature, history and especially focusing on philosophy. I am now studying at City Law School for the Bar Professional Training Course and will become a pupil barrister in September 2016.

I am enthusiastic and hard-working and I strongly believe in putting all my effort into what I do, so as a tutor I would work hard to try and help bring real improvement.

I was captain of one of my college football teams and also love playing cricket (though perhaps more keen than talented in both of the above!) I was Co-Chair of the Oxford University Labour Club and an elected official at the Student Union, and I also enjoy playing the piano and guitar.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a number of people via UK tutors in several subjects. My most significant recent achievement is improving a student from an F grade at Latin GCSE to a C (the highest grade possible at Foundation Tier) in just three months. I have also been a voluntary leader on summer camp, which included organizing detailed discussion sessions, and I tutored my sister for her successful Cambridge Philosophy application.

Tutoring Approach:

I would try and keep things as relaxed and informal as possible so the sessions are good fun and try to listen as well as talk so that we can focus on what needs to be worked on and tailor the sessions to individual needs. I think students often underperform not through lack of intelligence but lack of engagement and I would try and find a way to help them enjoy the classes and boost their self-esteem. I love all the subjects I tutor and I'd hope to inject that into my classes!

Personal Description:
Retired, deputy headteacher of a primary school in London. Aged 59. I have two children of my own, aged 12 and 14.

Teaching Experience:

Taught in primary and secondary schools for 34 years. Over 20 years experience as a deputy headteacher. Have taught the full age range of primary school but mostly KS2 (age 7-11). My main role over the last 15 years has been a Year 6 SATS teacher so I have lots of experience for SATS preparation. I also did a lot of work in booster groups in Maths and English, moving children from level 3 to level 4. I have now been tutoring for a year with children aged between 7 and 14. For the last 3 years I have been a Key Stage 2 SATs marker.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim is to improve the ability of the children in the subjects chosen. Most of my tutees find the one-to-one personal touch invaluable because it allows me to quickly identify the areas of difficulty and devise a learning programme to meet these at a pace which the tutee finds comfortable. Many of the parents have commented that one-to-one sessions have rapidly improved the tutee's confidence and has frequently resulted in them being moved up groups in the classroom. Other parents have asked me to prioritise my teaching time working with their children on school homework. I like to create a friendly but purposeful atmosphere. I always give time to the parents at the end of each session so they are kept completely informed about my aims and strategies. I have years of experience and all the relevant materials to support the children in these subjects.

Personal Description:
Trained at the School of Design in Altos de Chavon (Affiliated to Parsons New School for Design, New York), my art has taken me all the way around the world from the Caribbean, South America to Hong Kong to Portugal, and now UK. My technique varies depending on projects and as I have a strong background in Design Programs such as Adobe Creative Suite, in Fine Arts/ Illustration mediums such as Oil paints, Acrylic, Pastels, etc. Performing Arts, and exhibition assistant, I like to keep an open mind always and that has lead my art to be very versatile.

I teach Spanish as well. Its a great language and fun to speak, and very easy to learn.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2+years as an Art teacher and have been a private tutor for a few months.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understand, confidence and enthusiasm for each project. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and homework to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style, past paper questions, or drawing exams in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. Where appropriate I set and mark work, giving students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.

Personal Description:
I have a BA Honours degree in French and Spanish from the University of Leeds, and a post-graduate diploma in International Business from the University of Cambridge.

I am an enthusiastic teacher with a love of learning, and throughout my career have proven a consistent pattern of tutoring, teaching and training designed for and delivered to all ages. I believe that in order for a student to do well that they must feel engaged and be encouraged to think for themselves, and that rather than simply learn set answers to set questions they ought to know the subject to such an extent that it feels natural and unforced.

Teaching Experience:

My earliest teaching experience was tutoring a pre-GCSE student in English reading and comprehension whilst being in secondary school myself. Moving on from this I spent two years, again whilst still studying, teaching weaponry and aviation to cadet students of secondary school age.

Whilst in University I spent an academic year based in the Caribbean, on a French-Speaking island, where I was contracted to teach English as a foreign language to 6th form students ranging from 15 to 18 years of age. This was a wonderful experience and I was proud to have been able to coach my students into having a greater understanding of their chosen learning language, and to visibly see them gain confidence with their spoken foreign language skills.

Presently I very much enjoy being based in an Early Years setting Huntingdon, where on a weekly basis I teach French to our Pre-School age group who are between three and five years of age. Again this is very rewarding and at the same time challenging: not only is this teaching done with a group of between 8 and 14 children, but because we have many children who are already learning two (or maybe three!) languages I have to also ensure that our curriculum is as developmentally and culturally appropriate as possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an open and flexible approach to teaching which I like to adapt to each individual student and their needs. Please speak with me about what you would like to gain exactly from your tutoring experience and I will be more than happy to tailor my sessions to your request.

Personal Description:
I have seen students` confidence in their abilities increases and their understanding deepens. Both students and parents have offered positive feedback from the great improvement in their grade as a result of my tuition. For example, a student`s grade in A Level Physics improved from originally an E to an A after my tuition, while others attend their preferred schools after help revision for their entrance exams.

Teaching Experience:

After various school placements, such as teaching classes at St Aidan`s (ranked amongst the highest achieving comprehensive schools in the country), for over five years I have helped a multitude of pupils ranging from as young as six through to mature students.
Having experienced rigorous training, I am an Examiner for a major board and have relished the challenges of marking
candidates` papers. I feel this gives me an invaluable perspective when preparing my students for their own tests.
I am familiar with the different examination boards, particularly AQA, Edexcel, OCR, CIE and ISEB. Covering English and Reasoning where desired, I have prepared students for 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations as well as the STEP and PAT tests required for the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. With my tuition, students have gained entrance to the schools of Aldenham, Fulham Prep, Harrogate Ladies, Sedbergh, Charterhouse and Latymer. After my tuition, candidates attained the necessary grades for their university offers, including from Oxbridge, to study courses relevant to our preparation. I also have experience aiding with IB and professional skills tests together with Pre-U and IGCSE.
I am happy to offer tuition for all other syllabuses as well, for example WJEC and for free-standing maths qualifications.
I also offer tuition to adults wanting to improve their own maths understanding and skills, for example to help with their career or to pass graduate skills tests such as Kenexa, SHL and numeracy for QTS etc.
I have helped several students with Asperger Syndrome, those with dyslexia and students who are home schooled, have conditions including severe physical handicaps, speech and language difficulties or have had to change school due to behavioural difficulties. Furthermore, I have been trained for and have taught looked after children and also have experience of helping those for whom English is an additional language.

Tutoring Approach:

I find I can relate to students in a calm and patient manner and I have enjoyed helping them through difficulties with their subjects. I endeavour to find and solve the problems students have in their understanding to give them a firmer grasp of the topic, with the benefits from this being increased confidence and improved results.

Personal Description:
I am a young, female primary school teacher in the Doncaster/Wakefield area. Aside from my enthusiasm for teaching and helping children to achieve, I am interested in academic areas including sociology and languages. I enjoy travel and reading. I have worked voluntarily as a teaching assistant and completed a degree in Sociology before training to be a teacher. I now work as a supply teacher at primary level and as a personal tutor to primary and secondary level children. I hold an enhanced DBS check dated September 2015.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher who has taught classes of all ages at primary level. As a supply teacher, I have worked in many different schools and, as such, I develop positive relationships very quickly with both children and adults. I enjoy working with individuals and small groups in academic tasks and find that children are very responsive to this lower teacher-pupil ratio. I have found that working in these situations really helps to boost children's concentration and confidence in their work. They also feel more comfortable to ask questions in areas they find difficult. When tutoring, I am to create a positive, friendly and professional relationship where children feel comfortable with what they are learning, but also feel they can ask for help when required.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that children learn in many different ways - some by seeing and visualising, some by talking and discussing, and some by doing a physical or mental activity. I aim to tutor children using the learning style that best suits them. In a classroom, it is often difficult to meet the needs of every child. Personal tuition provides children with valuable one-to-one time, where the focus is on them and them alone. I believe that personal tuition does much to increase achievement in those weaker areas, but also serves to challenge and develop knowledge in stronger areas. Following a free initial consultation, I provide personalised programmes of study tailored exactly to meet the needs of the child involved. I am passionate about helping children to reach their full potential and will do all I can to make this happen. Sessions take place in the child's own home and are arranged on a flexible basis with parent or guardian. I can provide tuition from 30 minutes per week to more intensive programmes consisting of several hours per week in the school holidays.

I currently have slots available on weekday evenings and am available most Saturday mornings and early afternoon. I am not available on Sundays.

Personal Description:
I am a 22-year-old Cambridge music graduate and violinist based in Surrey. I am starting a Masters in Performance at the Royal College of Music in September 2015. I can teach violin, theory, GCSE Music and A Level Music. Furthermore I can help students write their personal statements and prepare for Oxbridge interviews.

Teaching Experience:

I have a great deal of experience in violin performance. During sixth form I was a member of the National Youth Chamber Orchestra and the Royal College of Music Junior Department. In my final year at Cranleigh School I performed Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64 with the Merriman Concert Orchestra.

At Cambridge I regularly performed in solo recitals at my college. I also played in the Cambridge University Music Society Symphony Orchestra at venues including King's College Chapel, St John's Smith Square and West Road Concert Hall.

Tutoring Approach:

I work closely with my students to help them improve their technique and musical understanding. Above all, I ensure that learning an instrument remains a positive and enjoyable experience.

I am available evenings, most weekends and during the holidays. I can provide assistance to students with existing teachers who require extra attention.

Personal Description:
I am a warm, engaging person with a great enthusiasm for teaching. I gained a Class 1 BA (Hons) Drama and Theatre Arts Degree from the University of Birmingham and I have a Masters in Acting from Guildford School of Acting. English has been an enormous part of my higher education as Drama is so heavily rooted in English Literature.
Drama and English has always been such a source of inspiration for me and I love sharing my passion through teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Drama and the study of English text for over six years, mainly at Step on Stage Academy in Twickenham and on a self employed basis. I have taught little ones up to young adults and I enjoy teaching the entire range!

Tutoring Approach:

I teach how I like to be taught. If I am passionate about what I'm teaching then this will translate to the student. Simple!
I know this because of my own experience as a pupil/tutee/student. I like to encourage my students - to not only educate them and provide the tool kit they need but to also instil confidence in what they do. Enjoyment is such an integral part of learning.
