Personal Description:
I recently stepped down as Head of German at the secondary school in Kidderminster, where I have led the German Department since 1995. I now work as a German classroom teacher. My decision to step down was based on the fact that I got married in July last year and now have to travel a considerable distance to my school. During my time as Head of Department, the results at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A2 have improved considerably. The pass rate for GCSE German has been approximately 80% for several years. This is higher than the national average and was based on 3 years of study to GCSE. Many pupils achieve top A*, A and B grades. The pass rate at AS and A2 has also been excellent with pupils achieving As, Bs and Cs. Former pupils have gone on to study languages at top-ranking universities and some have returned to the school in a teaching capacity for Modern Languages.

I have also worked as a tutor in Further Education teaching adults from aged 20 - 80 years from beginner's up to GCSE type work.

I am have friends in Germany and visit on a regular basis and keep up to date with new teaching ideas via the MFL Resources Forum.

I am interested in using a range of teaching strategies and personalising learning to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my classroom.

Exchanges and visits to Germany have been given prominence during my time as Head of Department.

I qualified as a teacher in my 30s following a successful career in industry as a PA and Company Translator for a German machine tool company. I have lived in Germany for a year on two different occasions. At both times, I worked for a German employer.

Teaching Experience:

Beginners' German (Key stage 3 and adults)
GCSE German
AS German
A2 German

I have experience as an oral examiner at GCSE, AS and A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be interested in understanding what the tutee required, using relevant materials and developing teaching strategies tailor-made to suit my tutee's needs.

I currently use a range of teaching strategies and personalise learning in my school classroom to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my teaching.

Personal Description:
Thank you for reading my profile. I currently lecture at the University of Salford. I am a visiting lecturer at the University of Cambridge and an external examiner at the University of Liverpool .I am also an assessor for OCR Biology GCSE/A Level and for academics undergoing their teaching qualifications. In 2015 I was nominated by my students for best teacher and best postgraduate supervisor and in 2016 I was nominated again for best teacher. I offer tuition at my home and some on line support. I have twenty years of experience of teaching. I began working as a private tutor seven years ago. This role gives me the freedom to get to know students on an individual basis and adapt to suit their needs and offers an incredible amount of job satisfaction. Please note however that if you are a student at the University of Salford I will be unable to offer private tuition due to a conflict of interest.
In 2015 I was invited to guest lecture and take on the role of medical director of studies at Cambridge, lecturing to medical students at Corpus Christi College. A post to which I shall return in 2016 I completed my PhD in rheumatology in 2009 at the University of Central Lancashire. Privately I mainly teach Biology, science, PE and study skills.I am also able to assist with other health related topics.
Prior to working within education I was a Chartered Physiotherapist within the NHS for 13 years at hospitals in my local area, achieving Senior I grade. During this time I assumed the role of Clinical Educator for students of Physiotherapy thus beginning my teaching career. While working within the NHS I was also the Physiotherapist to the England Women's football team for three years. This was a unique and memorable experience and I was immensely proud to represent my country, working with such talented individuals both at home and during tours of countries including France, Denmark, Italy, Iceland, Bulgaria, and the Soviet Union. I am an internationally published author, having written and edited eight textbooks which have been translated into eleven languages, covering subjects as diverse as anatomy, assignment writing, study skills and health studies. I have been an external examiner at the Universities of East London, and Bradford for postgraduate study and currently the University of Liverpool on their undergraduate physiotherapy programme . This role includes monitoring marking quality, exam board actions ,modifications to syllabus and teaching and learning consultancy.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for several years now. I began teaching in a professional capacity whilst working in a hospital environment where I became a Clinical Educator for undergraduate Physiotherapy students from Universities in the region. This role involved teaching and training undergraduate students within hospitals. Eventually my enthusiasm for teaching overtook that of my day job and I began teaching at Salford University on a part time basis, becoming a full time member of staff within the School of Health Sciences in 1996. I am the longest serving member of staff in the department and enjoy my job, and the interaction with students, as much now as when I first began teaching. Please note that if you are a student at the University of Salford I will be unable to offer private tuition due to a conflict of interest.

Teaching at a university entails a range of teaching methods including lecturing to hundreds of students, small and large group seminar-based sessions and a mix of theory and practical skills. Since 1998 I have been the Year One tutor which involves a pastoral element as many students are having their first experience of independence away from friends and family.

As a private tutor both in my own home and in the tutees home I mainly focus on one to one tuition which I find hugely rewarding as I am able to dedicate unwavering attention to the tutee and their chosen subjects. I have experience of teaching students from diverse backgrounds and ranging in age from 14 years to 50 years.

In 2009 I won the first ever Teaching Excellence Award at Salford University, and the following year was nominated for the Times Educational Innovative Teacher Award - both nominated by my students, a fact of which I am extremely proud.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly and informal approach to teaching as I believe a relaxed environment is most conducive to learning regardless of subject or age, however i am aware that privvate tuition is a serious commitment and it is very important that there is a clear structure to the sessions. I am familiar with the syllabus for OCR, AQA and EDEXCEL for G.C.S.E., A level and degree. The first session will include an informal discussion with parents/tutee to gain an understanding of the tutees requirements and to explain my role and how I can aid learning.
The structure of the sessions are largely dictated by the tutee, the subjects they wish to focus on and their preferred learning style and this can be discussed at the first session. As the student develops, the structure can be adapted in line with this.


Additional Information

While I prefer to teach in my own home under certain circumstances I may be able to travel to the student. This will be subject to the inclusion of travelling costs in addition to the tuition fee. This will be undertaken by prior arrangement; please indicate your requirements on initial contact.

I am also able to offer the additional educational services:

literature searching
proof reading
essay planning
essay structuring

As I work full time I will require notice to complete any of these tasks and I am unable to write complete assignments as this would be unethical.

Thanks very much for viewing my profile.

Personal Description:
I'm Italian and I lived, studied and worked in Italy unitl 20 years ago. I work in the linguistic field (Italian /English) in a variety of roles. I have an Italian university degree in Foreign Languages, a Trinity Tesol Certificate and I'm also a qualfied legal interpreter and translator.

Teaching Experience:

I have been giving Italian tuitions at different levels for several years. I currently teach Italian to adults at City College Peterborough.
I also have teaching experience in other sectors: I have collaborated with local charity projects as a ESOL tutor for adults, and I prepare interpreters for the professional exams to qualify as legal interpreters

Tutoring Approach:

Programme and lessons are set around the student's needs and level. Language is learned through themes about life, culture and factual information, using listening, reading, speaking and writing skills in a variety of activities and games. The material I use is recently published and always up to date, to reflect the current Italian language, culture and society.

Lessons are available as one-to one or as a group of up to 4 students.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate (2012) of the University of Bristol where I studied Biology and obtained a high 2.1. In addition to my degree, I have studied a wide range of subjects during my time in education, within the humanities and the sciences. The inspirational teaching that I have received is one the mains reasons for my achievement of high grades, as well as enthusiasm for my subjects. I believe I can share this enthusiasm and my knowledge and offer your child the help they require.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst at school I was part of a reading scheme where a group of 10 students visited a nearby primary school. We read to individuals on a 1 on 1 basis and helped them to develop their own reading skills. I have been recently accepted onto the TeachFirst scheme, a two-year teaching placement, which will commence in 2013. To gain the experience I will need for this and the present tutoring I am doing, I have spent a lot of time in my old secondary school shadowing teachers and siting in on classes. I have also been coaching hockey at my local club since I was 16, which has allowed me to develop my communication skills.

Tutoring Approach:

In my opinion, a great tutor is not only one that can engage and animate their pupils, but can also adapt their teaching style to meet the needs of the individual. I hope that not only will I give your child the support they require, but he/she will also enjoy the teaching process.

Personal Description:
I am a professional geography researcher specialised in regional geography and urban sciences. I have gained my knowledge and expertise from universities across Europe (Pcs, Wolverhampton, Maribor, Zagreb, and Ljubljana). I am currently a PhD Aspirant at the University of Pcs, Hungary.

I have been mainly researching in the field 'geography of energy', but my interests link my specification to other scientific disciplines such as sustainability, environmental sciences, and landscape geography, and I am able to perform and combine various geographical fields.

During my years as a PhD Student, I was given the chance to gain experience as a lecturer; teaching subjects which included: renewable energy resources and world regional geography. In 2015, I officially became a teacher after successfully completing my PGCE at the Birmingham City University in England.

As a teacher I have also gained experience in a prison setting teaching mathematics to a wide age range and ability of students and different learning levels, whilst I have been able to use the knowledge that I obtained from the course in practice.

Besides having published a number of articles and books, I am the founder and series editor of Frugeo's journal called Geographical Locality Studies.

I am a registered member of the Hungarian Geographical Society (MFT), and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).

Teaching Experience:

Being a 'good' teacher is a subjective opinion that I cannot state about myself. I am experienced in a wide-range of teaching environments from primary/secondary school-aged pupils to adult/prison learning and higher education.

People who have observed me teaching in the past have had positive criticism of my work and mentioned how efficient and encouraging my lessons and teaching methods are. In my opinion, to be a good teacher it is essential to be flexible with the environment you work in and have to have comprehensive knowledge both in outdoors and in classroom settings. You have to experience and observe the outside world for you to engage and maintain properly an enthusiastic class when teaching geography.

The qualifications and the reputation I have obtained in Geography are the results of an enthusiasm I have had since my childhood for this subject area and it is still part of my daily life that comes to life through my own business and its journal.

Geography is not only my profession, but is also my hobby that is present in my life with all of its aspects, whether it be examining a piece of rock or talking about coffee beans, I can discuss both in an academic sense as well as out of personal interest. The diverse use of language therefore is important when encouraging others on geography and the key is to find a common interest between subject and receiver for them to understand and to be inspired by what they are learning. For example, when teaching in the prison, Mathematics combined with Geography suddenly becomes more interesting and therefore engaging.

Tutoring Approach:

For a researcher with a deep understanding about the Earth's mechanisms, Geography will always reserve a high number of mysteries. Research is the foundation for everything that is taught and this will always be exciting for me to do. But the implementation of this new knowledge may be challenging, that is why you have to keep thinking of new teaching methods to improve the quality of the subject that you are teaching. For this reason, it is essential to assist the younger generation for them to become capable to deal with geography related topics and issues.

As originally a researcher with a non-British educational background and with a very colourful and diverse interest in Earth Sciences, I am able to shake things up. My aim is to develop people's knowledge, foster their understandings on geography and help them achieve the required goals set by the school/exam board which I hope will motivate them into using geographical knowledge in their daily lives.

Personal Description:
After completing my D.Phil from the University of Oxford, I worked for 7 years as a Senior Biologist for a small drug discovery company where I was responsible for screening new drug targets in tissue models for human disease. Over the years I've had so many comments from students/colleagues about my ability to break subjects down to ease understanding, and coupled with my passion for science and sharing that with others I decided to change career and become a full-time science tutor. I've never looked back!

I am also a freelance examiner for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) - examining is invaluable to my role as a science tutor and to the development of my students' abilities in preparation for their examinations. It has taught me to understand the very specific focus of each syllabus as a whole, to read for the specific aim of relevant text, and to concentrate not just on surface comprehension but to expand science beyond basic skills.

I have many hobbies but particularly enjoy outdoor pursuits including: sailing, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking and running. Most of my free time though is spent with my wonderful husband and beautiful tots!

Teaching Experience:

During my time researching at Oxford, I tutored an array of students in Biochemistry, Biology, Genetics, Human Science and Medicine.

I have vast tutoring experience at both GCSE, AS/A2 level covering all UK exam specifications, including IB.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is informal, working with each student to improve their approach to learning whilst maintaining motivation. At the end of the day, learning should be fun!

I usually charge a very small travel fee to cover the cost of fuel.

Personal Description:
I'm 27 years old, a graduate of the University of London (MA) and full-time tutor with around four years' experience.

I received a distinction in Latin as part of my MA Classics degree, and continue to enjoy studying and teaching both Latin and ancient Greek.

Teaching Experience:

Extensive experience in teaching prep-school, GCSE, A-level and degree-level Latin to ages ranging between 7 to 40+ yrs.

Select achievements of 2016:

Pupil i: A pupil of mine for c three years, he achieved a B in the Westminster School Latin Challenge 13+ examination (A-Level standard) and has earned himself a place at the school.

Pupil ii.: Came to me with almost no knowledge of Latin, having found it tedious during the year. Within 12 weeks she took the exam and recieved a B at Level 1 Latin.

Pupil iii.: A long-standing pupil, she received as average a First for the essays I provided tuition on (Year 1 of her BA Classical Studies).

Select achievements of 2015:

Pupil i. (Prep) Bright though receiving consistently low marks in his Latin and Greek mock papers, he achieved an A in the end-of-year examinations in both subjects after c six months tuition, and recieved a place at a top London school.

Pupil ii. (GCSE) Suffering from dyslexia and receiving low marks on her language papers, she eventually achieved an A after c six months of tuition. Now studying at a top London girls' school.

Tutoring Approach:

I use the first lesson to assess the extent of the pupil's grammatical knoweldge by asking for the recitation of tables and perhaps a translation of a small piece of prose or verse matched in difficulty to the pupil's level.

After this assessment, the following lessons are based around the needs of the pupil, with practice questions and passages forming the basis of our learning.

Imperative to my lessons are a sense of humour and frequent chats - this provides relief, which in turn stimulates concentration and allows for a rapport to to be built with the pupil.

Some previous references:

"He is patience, sympathetic, and good in tailoring his teaching method to suit the need and ability level of his student. He is currently helping my son to prepare for the 13 plus common entrance scholarship exams for Latin and English, of whom is aiming for the Westminster School in 2016, year 9 entry.

Anthony has a good sense of humour and a very relaxed manner, that makes my kid feeling easy and comfortable to work on the subjects. A wonderful kind tutor who encourage and motivate my child to achieve the best. My son is the top of his year in Latin since Year 6, 100 per cent creditability to Anthony.

I would have no hesitations to recommending Anthony."

"An extremely engaging and enthusiastic character; his ardour delicately forces the student to love the discipline for themselves, and he has greatly increased my personal interest in the subjects of Latin and Classics. Not much I can think to fault by ways of teaching, would highly recommend."

"Anthony helped my son over the holidays with some grammar he was finding difficult. He fitted us in at short notice and went out of his way to be helpful - running off sheets and practice questions in the target areas. Would thoroughly recommend Anthony, he's patient and gets his message across clearly and effectively."

"Has wonderful personality that makes it easier to listen to him and at the same time enjoy the lessons. He helped me a lot with my essays when it came to the structure which is essential in the Grade A criteria. Highly recommendable."

Please note that for pupils outside a three mile radius of my house and who require my travelling to them, there is an additional charge for travelling expenses/time taken in addition to my standard hourly rate. This is to be negotiated with the client before details are exchanged.

Personal Description:
I am a divorcee with two teenagers and a rather loopy dog (all housetrained!) I discovered the joys of teaching as a parent helper at my children's Infant and Junior schools which inspired me to qualify as a Primary School teacher. Unfortunately I have developed arthritis in my knee which is why I am looking to continue my teaching in a non-school environment. My favourite academic subject is literacy because I love reading books by a wide range of authors, e.g. Austin and Dickens to J K Rowling and Jacqueline Wilson. I love creative crafts e.g. card making, cross stitch, scrapbooking etc. Music plays a big part in my life, including listening and making. I'm a bit of a diva on the recorder and can play the full range from Sopranino to Bass. I love to sing.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher who has worked in a number of schools in Essex in permanent, temporary and supply posts across both KS1 and KS2 over the last four years. My PGCE was obtained through School Centred Initial Teacher Training (which comprised spending a lot of time working directly with children). Prior to that I was a parent helper and governor for 5 years at my children's Infant and Junior Schools. I was Music Leader at my last school for two years and ran the choir. I enjoy teaching all primary subjects. I am keen to also support adults in improving their maths and literacy skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am familiar with the Primary Curriculum. Hands on learning is great fun and I enjoy practical activities. I love working on a one to one basis as you can build a rapport and really personalise the learning. I enjoy topic work as it gives the learning a context and shows that subjects do not stand alone without any connections/overlap with each other (just like life). I am keen to support both adults and children in mastering literacy and numeracy skills because they are fundamental life skills. Personalised learning means that any gaps can be filled so that an individual has a firm foundation on which to build.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 2nd year undergraduate studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Imperial College London. I was selected to attend the Google Top Black Talent Programme, recognising the best talents in the UK at the moment. I am a very sociable and creative person, which is why I currently hold the position of Creative Director of the Afro-Caribbean society at Imperial, one of Imperial's largest cultural societies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught computer literacy to individuals from disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is simple. Kids will never learn unless they want to. I intend to present my teaching in a way that is creative and interesting to the student, so as to make the best of each session. The best teachers do not just teach. They engage. It is paramount you are able to capture the interest of your student, something I am more than capable of.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed a PhD in Applied Maths, and wish to use some of my experience of the subject to help other students reach their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years of experience of tutoring undergraduate students in maths at the University of Sheffield. These were mostly Fundamental and 1st year maths courses, at a similar standard to A-level.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide one-to-one or small group tuition in a relaxed, friendly environment tailored to the student's needs. My approach is mainly to establish areas of weakness in the student's understanding, and try to help them overcome these by explaining the basic principles and working through example questions with them.

Personal Description:
I have a Master of Arts Honours Degree in English and History from one of the top twenty Universities in the world - The University of Edinburgh.

I also have a TEFL Qualification, and with this I went to Shanghai China to teach English as a Foreign Language.

Finally, I like to write in my spare time and have completed two books (one of which is in my UK Tutors profile picture which you can see.)

I have travelled all across Europe and my Monday - Friday job is as a Business Consultant in the West End of Glasgow.

Thank you.

Teaching Experience:

-> Taught English As A Foreign Language for two years in Shanghai China.
-> I have been tutoring now for several years. (References available upon request.)

Tutoring Approach:

Interesting, well-planned classes encouraging interaction from the tutee, my classes are always very intriguing, enjoyable and I foster a very communicative and friendly relationship with my students.

Indeed, I am very personable and so get along well with students from a very early stage.

Personal Description:
I come from China. I was having postgraduate courses on finance and investment at the university of Nottingham. Now I have finished my courses, and I am staying in Birmingham. I am very patient and active. Chinese is my native language, so I am good at Mandarin.

Teaching Experience:

Although I have no teaching experience, I am good at Chinese. Furthermore, I know how to learn Mandarin effectively. I have a 8-year old nephew, so I know how to communicate with a child and take care of a child.

Tutoring Approach:

I can tutor by face to face or online. I will teach Mandarin from the basis or according to students' requirements.

Personal Description:
Everyone calls me Olu, I am young, friendly but strict (I don't know where that came from). I am a doctorate degree student of Nuclear Robotics. I bagged a distinction in my Masters degree and a first class in my Bachelor's program all thanks to those I have taught during revision. You know I have noticed that you study harder when you study to teach others.

So yes, in the area of academics, I have come a long way, learning and teaching, the cycle never ends. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing knowledge, this is one thing I do with passion..<< don't tell anyone >>.

I do not only consider teaching as a Job, but also as a hobby as it is fun making people understand what they had thought was confusing.

Teaching Experience:

My Teaching Experience dates back to my days as an A'Level student preparing for the GCE Cambridge A'Levels Exam in 2005. I made sure I carried all my colleagues along by conducting regular free tutorials.

When I got into the University, I continued. Every other evenings and every weekend, I would take part in tutorial sessions for my colleagues and sometimes for junior colleagues. This I did from 2006 to 2011.

In 2012, I registered as an Online-Tutor and have engaged a number of students in America and UK on mathematics and engineering related subjects. Not to mention that I have been involved in peer revision meetings all through my post graduate days at the University of Manchester where I took charge of conducting Mock Examinations.

To me, this has been fun.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very very simple:

Step 1: Ask you what area you have problems with.
Step 2: Tell you to go on and teach me the aspects you know and even the aspects you do not know.
Step 3: I will take note of your strengths and weaknesses.
Step 4: Leave the rest to me, the tutorials would be worth the time and pay.

PS: Many times, from experience, students think they have problems with a topic, but all they have is just "no confidence about what they know". That is where we come in, to restore your confidence in the things you know and add to it. Hence, my best approach is to keep the interaction "both-ways".

Personal Description:
Hi I'm currently a fourth year student at University of Leeds studying Dentistry. I am from Malaysia and my mother tongue is Mandarin. As well as Mandarin I speak four other languages. I received an A* in A level mathematics. I can provide tutoring in Mandarin from beginner to advance level, likewise with maths. I take great pleasure in helping people understand these sometimes challenging subjects. I have always enjoyed helping people in general whether from academic studies or by helping the less fortunate as I have done so while I was in Bahrain providing help to students suffering from down syndrome. I am an enthusiastic, responsible and patient tutor with a love for discovering new places and meeting new people as well as a passion for art and travel.
