Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge graduate and a full-time, professional tutor with a friendly approach to tutoring, placing emphasis on confidence-building as well as knowledge attainment.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring at varying levels, from 11+ to University, for nearly three years, and am now a full-time tutor working for agencies, institutions, local authorities and private clients. Most of this work has been preparation for a particular exam, although I have also had students who are studying just for the enjoyment of it. I feel well-suited to being 'on the other end' of the one-to-one style of teaching that I benefited from at university.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is friendly and informal. I prefer to let the tutee dictate the pace of a session by encouraging them to interrupt or ask me to repeat when we hit upon work they are not fully understanding.

I have found that the most efficient use of a tutoring session is for me to first outline the theory of what we are going to study in that session to the student, and then use the remainder of the time to work through questions with the student as they become progressively more comfortable with the content until, ultimately, they feel able to answer the questions alone.

The content of the sessions is always tailored to the particular qualification the student is working towards, and the student has complete autonomy over what we study together.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Shaun. I am 22 year old PhD student at De Montfort University and I have a passion for teaching. Having completed exams and gone through the English academic pathway, I know how tough it can be to get your head around exams. Although I am young, I have good experience teaching adults and children, as you will see below. I am a balanced, understanding individual, and I have had tutoring myself in the past, so I feel that I know what it takes to build a successful student-teacher relationship. I am very outgoing, and I am sure that I will be able to assist people to get the best out of their courses.

Teaching Experience:

Part-time Lecturer De Montfort University
Teaching A-Level (a few sessions) St John Fisher Catholic College

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed. I use a lot of IT and try to make classes as fun as possible. When I tutor I normally find that sessions never drag, and I hope this remains the case.

Please note that I am more than happy to arrange a personal meeting or phone call free of charge before I give a class. I believe that it is crucial that the student selects a tutor they are comfortable with, and I am more than happy to try ad ensure that this is the case.

Personal Description:
I am a student currently studying Biological Sciences BSc at the University of Leicester, and have already achieved a first in my first year. The nature of my degree has given me a great deal of self-motivation, time-management and organisation skills. I was a debating captain at school, and so have brilliant communication skills. I was also a Citizenship and Environment Prefect, and so had to raise local and international issues to students through a variety of teaching events.

I have good leadership skills developed through a range of experiences, and I can adapt well to different situations. I am a hard-worker with an eye for detail, and am enthusiastic and dedicated to teaching well. Adaptability is a core strength for me, as I realise that students require imaginative and original ways to learn and absorb information, so they can process and apply what they learn.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a student in A-level Biology, boosting her grade from an A to A* by working heavily on her ability to apply knowledge and by going through biological processes with her.

I have tutored a GCSE Chemistry student, making her more confident in her work by reviewing what she had learnt in school, re-teaching her what she was weak on and then testing her regularly. This boosted her grade from a B to an A.

I have also tutored a year 9 maths student in algebra and shapes/area and by using practical methods to highlight the uses of maths and help put the curriculum in context of real-life, helping her apply the principles. This boosted her D grade to a strong C.

Tutoring Approach:

On the first meeting, I hope to find out what the tutee is weak on or would like to work on. From this, I hope to test their basic knowledge of the subject material to find the depth of understanding that the tutee has. This will help both the tutee and I understand where we should focus and what topics we should target.

Throughout the course of the lessons, I will use a range of methods (oral, visual and physical) to help the tutee learn and the knowledge will be reiterated through help sheets and homework. Once a subject or module is covered, mini-tests will be done to test progress and then eventually a full exam. My main aim is to build confidence and make the student feel comfortable in what they are learning, if I achieve this much then their progress is inevitable.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified PGCE Post Compulsory Education graduate and a photographer. I am flexible, enthusiastic and eager to gain further teaching experience whilst aiding students with their photographic development. Through my work experience and my PGCE, I have found within myself a determination to succeed in any task I am a part of, and I have proven myself to be both reliable and professional.

Teaching Experience:

May 2006. National Trust photographic project
As part of a student led team I helped to create and implement a photographic brief for three primary school classes, introducing them to the principles of pinhole and digital photographic practice.

November 2006 - July 2007. Falmouth Comprehensive School, Teaching Assistant
Helped with the running of the A-level photography course, offering advice to students concerning their practical work. I also delivered technical demonstrations and presentations relating to students projects.

After a training period I became eligible to run workshops and taster days for Widening Participation students around the South West region.

December 2006. Aim Higher Portfolio Advice Conference, ICA
Offered critiques of the photographic portfolios of students applying for higher education courses in the U.K.

April 2009 - July 2009. Springboard Centre, Doncaster. Teaching assistant
Classroom/teaching assistant in a Pupil Referral Unit providing GCSE level education for pupils that had been excluded from mainstream education. The students possessed a range of learning and behavioural difficulties.

November 2009 - June 2010. Cross Keys College, Gwent, Trainee Photography teacher
Responsible for the teaching and development of a group of first year BTEC National Diploma Photography students.

September 2011 - January 2012. Barnsley College, Introduction to Digital Photography (Evening Tutor)
I currently deliver a fifteen week short course to adult learners, teaching them a broad overview of the basics of photographic practice. I was entrusted with the task of devising my own scheme of work which allows the students to develop a variety of skills in a realistic time frame, taking into account the varying abilities within the group.

January 2012 - June 2012. Doncaster College, Exploring Digital Photography (Evening Tutor)
I deliver a unit of study over ten weeks that enables learners to develop a basic understanding of digital photography, from image capture through to image manipulation.

March 2011 - Present. Doncaster College, Learning Support Assistant
I give support to students that have a variety of barriers to their learning on both a one to one and group basis. I assist with basic spelling and grammar issues. I also help with students' organisation and planning. On occasion I act as a reader and scribe in exam situations for a number of students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a patient and calm approach to tutoring preferring to act as a facilitator to my students development guiding them along the way to ensure they feel responsible for their own learning. I am able to deliver tuition in both film and digital based camera techniques. I also have a wide range of experience using traditional darkrooms and software programs such as Photoshop.

Through my own photographic education I have collected a large range of text books and resources that students are welcome to utilise for written assignments and I have developed a number of teaching resources to aid students with research techniques and the composition of essays.
