Personal Description:
I am an experienced maths tutor of over 10 years. I work as a Research Scientist in the daytime these days, although I have lectured at University in the past. I am a registered marker for KS3 Maths.

Teaching Experience:

University Lecturer
Private tutor for more than 10 years

Tutoring Approach:

The key to teaching Maths is building confidence through plenty of worked examples in the student's weaker areas. Through careful teaching a student's confidence can soon be improved when they see that they can do the work they previously thought difficult. I provide detailed notes and homeworks for every lesson. I will also go through exam technique, revision schedules and past papers.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (27 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (27 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (33 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Spanish teacher and completed my PGCE in Spanish with French at Newcastle University in 2009. I then went on to gain Qualified Teacher Status in 2010. All of my teaching qualifications are up to date and can be produced, along with my current CRB form, in the first lesson.

I am fluent in Spanish and studied Law with Spanish at Nottingham University. This involved living for a year in Valencia which gave me a wonderful insight into Spanish culture. I then went on to spend a year teaching English in Peru, a country which I have returned to visit several times. I have also spent time living in Honduras where I undertook voluntary work in a Primary School. These experiences have made Spanish one of my great passions and I hope to pass this on to my students.

After working for several years as a Languages teacher in the North East, in December 2013 I decided to leave my post in a South Tyneside school to spend more time with my young daughter. This move will now enable me to spend more time on Private Tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2009 I have worked as a Languages teacher in a number of schools in the North East. My responsibilities have included:
- Teaching Spanish at Key Stage 3 and at GCSE and A level
- Writing my own Schemes of Work
- Conducting and marking GCSE written and speaking controlled assessments
- Teaching all aspects of Spanish grammar at AS and A2 level
- Teaching Cultural topics for A2 AQA syllabus

Private Tuition:

Main highlights include:

- Tutoring a student who needed to re-sit her A2 Spanish paper to attend the University of her choice. This student was successful in her re-sit and has since gone on to study Spanish at University.

- Tutoring an English speaking student who had lived in Tenerife and was unable to study Spanish at his school on relocation to the North East. I solely tutored him through the AQA AS course in which he gained a grade A at the age of 13.
I subsequently tutored him throughout the whole of the A2 course, including both cultural topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient and considerate and always strive to get the best from my students. In my approach to exam preparation, I believe in the importance of consolidating learning through self study, homework and past exam papers.

(Please note, the below rates are based on the student travelling to my home. I am also happy to travel to the student and a reasonable rate for travel will be negotiated for travel time and expenses).

  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor with first class honours in Modern and Medieval Languages and Literature from Cambridge University. I am also a working actor with six years of professional experience throughout theatre (Shakespeare's Globe, Edinburgh Royal Lyceum, Northern Stage, Southwark Playhouse), television (BBC, ITV, Sky) and radio (Radio 4).
I also have 5 A-Levels at A grade, 10 GCSEs (9 A*s - for my English Literature GCSE I received the top mark in the country - and 1 A).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a committed tutor for a number of years now, dedicated to enabling others. Additionally as an Educational Practitioner with the Globe Theatre, Propeller Theatre Company and as a freelance Workshop Leader, working with 8-18 year olds (and often international students who speak no English!) I have learned first hand the power of facilitating learning in others.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very keen to tailor my tuition to the specific needs of the tutee ie. try to identify subject areas in which they themselves felt under-confident. If a "general" improvement is sought then of course I would structure the sessions around what I felt would be most useful; as a jobbing actor I am able to thoroughly prepare each lesson plan around the needs of the individual, and insodoing, to maximise the efficiency of the time "in the classroom"! I myself was tutored outside of school during my adolescence, so know what a tiresome experience external tuition can sometimes be, especially on top of an increasingly demanding schedule within school, so would be keen to make this experience as harmless, instructive and hopefully fun for the tutee as possible! It is something I am deeply passionate about.

Personal Description:
I have completed an LLB Law degree and have furthered this by undertaking a Legal Practice Course. I am currently working as a legal representative. In the past I have really enjoy working with young people and I feel that tutoring is something that is underrated and hugely beneficial to them. Due to working with young people in sports I have a full enhanced CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

At university I obtained a position as a Peer Assisted Learning coordinator and leader, which involved taking on a group of first years once a week in order to go over their notes, help them learn to study, revision and essay structuring techniques. This allowed students to have a different kind of learning environment to that of formalised education in which they were comfortable with practising work and asking questions. I very much enjoyed this and believe that it was highly beneficial to the students that attended.

Working at a local football centre I have been involved in several sporting/coaching projects for young people. This has allowed me to develop different teaching strategies related to different environments; these involve quick thinking and problem solving both skills which I deem to be essential when tutoring.

I have close links to a local secondary school and therefore am able to have access to valuable resources which will aid tutoring sessions.

I offer tutoring in GCSE and KS3 English, GCSE & KS3 Maths, GCSE PE and GCSE and A-Level Law.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring is a very important concept for some children. A lot of children benefit hugely from one to one information and reinforcement; and it may be a far more effective learning strategy for them. I think it is important to first gain an understanding of where a child's strengths and weaknesses lie, in order to focus on the areas which perhaps need improvement. I also value a child's input as they are good judges of what they feel they do well and what they may need help with. The tutoring sessions will move at a pace that the child is comfortable with, and help with homework and coursework will be available. For GCSE and A-Level tutoring if desired essay structuring and revision strategies can be discussed and learned, as these are often overlooked in schools.

I feel that tutoring outside of school may help improve a child's confidence within a school environment, be this in the work itself or in class discussions and for them as a person. It is not always easy for a child to speak up at school, and if they do not understand this may result in them falling behind. As a tutor I am able to reinforce school work at a pace more appropriate for the level of your child, and allow them to develop and learn in a way that is suitable and enjoyable for them.

Personal Description:
I have a BA (Hons) degree in Acting which I received at Birmingham School of Acting. I have 11 years performing experience; this combined with the inspiring training I absorbed in drama school gives me extensive knowledge and insight into my specialised area. During my training I was awarded a Laurence Olivier Bursary by the Society of London Theatre for being one of the most promising actors in the UK. I was also nominated for the Carleton Hobbs Radio Award, recording at the BBC. I have attended workshops at the Royal Shakespeare Company and was extremely privileged to be selected to perform & attend workshops at Shakespeare's Globe at the Sam Wanamaker Festival in 2010.

I am a professional actor, director & writer as well as a tutor; so am able to understand the importance of each perspective and explain and explore the possibilities within these areas.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PTLLS Teaching Qualification so am able to organise my knowledge and teaching plans to suit my student's needs.

I understand that student's have their own learning style and my role is to discover, adapt and then help them explore within that style.

Tutoring Approach:

Positivity, relaxation, bravery, understanding writing and a respectful connection to your emotional core are what I believe makes an actor special.

I will give you the tools and encourage you to reach your highest potential in the specialist area you would like to explore.

I will teach you to stretch your imagination in order to make the bravest, most exciting acting choices.

My specialist areas are Classical Acting, Contemporary Theatre, Physical Theatre, Psychological Realism, Stage Combat, Acting through Song, Performance Art, Vocal Technique, Comedy, Contemporary Dance, Audition Technique, Stage, Screen and Broadcast.

Personal Description:
We are a select group of specialist language tutors with a very simple mission; to provide consistently excellent tuition to students throughout greater London. With a number of us having studied at Oxbridge, and the remainder having studied at one of the prestigious Russell Group of Universities, we are appropriately qualified to tutor at the very highest level.

Teaching Experience:

With over 50 years combined tutoring experience, we have assisted many a student achieve and exceed their academic ambitions. Having thoroughly enjoyed doing so, we wish to continue offering our services as London's leading tutors.

Tutoring Approach:

Experience has taught us that each student possesses unique talents and abilities. Hence, it would be inappropriate to teach all students in the same manner. We tailor our teaching technique to meet the individual needs of each student. However, common to all our tutoring, is the notion of setting ambitious but achievable goals. We believe this to be the key ingredient to the success that our students have enjoyed over the years.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified secondary school art teacher, and university lecturer in History of Art. I completed my PhD in History of Art at University College London (UCL) in 2013. I have published my research in a number of academic journals and edited book collections, and I am currently a Research Fellow at Cornell University Society for the Humanities, USA.

I'm currently based in the United States until August 2017, and I'm presently offering Skype tutorials only until this time. As of August/September I will be based in Hulme, Manchester and can travel up to 20 miles from the city centre, or meet students at my central Manchester art studio. I'm available for Skype appointments at any time, taking into account the time difference (-5 hours EST).

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully trained secondary school teacher, specialising in Art & Design and Photography at KS3, KS4 & KS5. I have 10 years teaching experience, including working as a specialist Learning Support Teacher, and in Special Needs schools catering for children and young adults with a range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple disabilities.

I have particular expertise in studio practice (art and design), digital and darkroom photography (theory, history and practice), literacy, social and vocational skills, as well as History of Art, Anthropology and History of Medicine at undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at undergraduate level, having taught gallery-based first year History of Art courses, for University College London's History of Art Department, and on the History of Art degree programme at the University of Manchester.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a one-to-one, flexible approach to learning and teaching, which first establishes the needs and goals of the student, and then sets out clearly structured strategies for achieving these goals. These may be results-focused when preparing for exams, or aimed at developing a broader understanding of a subject area, depending upon the student's own priorities. I am happy to work with any course materials the student may provide, and I am familiar with all current GCSE and A Level syllabuses. I am able to guide both GCSE and A Level students through their studies, offering consistent, dedicated 1-2-1 tuition for the full term of the course. I can also provide practical tuition for students who are preparing their art portfolios for University submission, and can offer assistance with UCAS forms and references for students who undertake long-term A Level tuition with me.

Tutoring may take place at the student's home, or at my art studio in central Manchester, where I can provide a range of art materials and resources by prior arrangement, for more intensive practical art sessions. Please note that I can travel within 20 miles of central Manchester based on the fee structure quoted below, travelling further will incur a small additional fuel fee.

I have had recent successes with my private students, one of whom attended one-to-one sessions at my Manchester studio for 8 weeks and improved her predicted GCSE Art result of a B by two grades, achieving an A* in her final art exam. My most recent undergraduate students have also attained First class results in their undergraduate degrees. One student achieved a high score of 78 on her History of Art dissertation project with intensive tutorial support conducted via Skype; and another progressed from a fail during the first year of his Visual Communication degree, to a First class final result in his third year, following 2 years of regular commitment to one-to-one tutoring.

*Please note that due to the time-intensive nature of undergraduate level tutoring, I am only able to take on a maximum of three undergraduate tutees at any given time. Please see below for my current availability for tutoring at this level.*

I am currently tutoring TWO undergraduate students.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

GCSE Level:

A Level:

University Undergraduate Level:

"I wanted a tutor to give me help and advice on my undergraduate history of art dissertation. I needed reassurance that what I was writing was okay and some one to proof read and give me their opinion on my arguments. Gemma was brilliant, she gave me the confidence that I needed to keep going with my dissertation by reassuring me that I was on the right track. She discussed my ideas with me in detail, proof read all of my work and suggested and sourced articles that I might want to have a look at. I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a First in History of Art and Media and I know that I owe Gemma a huge thank you for the support she gave me on the way to achieving this."

Personal Description:
I am a university student currently studying at the university of St Andrews for a Honours program in Zoology. I am a native French speaker ( I actually am French) and was awarded the distinction of best French A-level results in East Africa in 2011, with a score of 499/500. I performed well both at IGCSE'S and A-levels ( IGCSE 6 A*'s and 4 A's, geography, Chemistry and Biology were among the A*'s, and are the subjects I took at A level, in which I achieved A* AA in the same order).
Last year, after a long and complicated admission process, I was offered a place to go study at Oxford University, but unfortunately had to decline it due to financial hardship.
I have lived in Kenya for now 7 years, and have a genuine interest in animal behaviour and conservation.

Teaching Experience:

I do not have much experience when it comes to teaching to be perfectly honest, although I often volunteered to be a student helper for those who had difficulties with certains subjects in my whole school. I am very familiar with the A-level syllabus by CIE, and the exam techniques required at this particular exam board.
I can offer advice and assistance with university application process too, as I was tutored to match Oxford requirements in terms of personal statements and interviews, I can also give you some tips about the Oxford interview processes.

Tutoring Approach:

I will first ask the person to tell me by email what their difficulties are, and what they would like us to go through together so that I can get together the information and any details necessary before meeting and discussing it. I am fairly flexible, everyone learns in a different manner and I will try my best to match my tutoring to the person's learning habits.

Personal Description:
I have just recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in English Literature & Language. I am very passionate about literature and history outside of a teaching capacity. I have decided to begin tutoring since graduating as I would love to pass on my knowledge and teaching to students of all ability. I am also a mentor to students in my local community I have interests in football, quizzing, drama, and cinema.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students for over four years in London and Oxford. I initially began tutoring friends and family for GCSE History, English Language and English Literature. Soon I decided to take it further and began tutoring people in my local area. In my time as a GCSE tutor I have managed to push students from C grades towards B's and above.

I also tutor in AS/A Level English Literature and History. For AS/A Levels I regularly focus on exam technique and try to improve on essay structure.

Tutoring Approach:

When I arrived at Oxford I began tutoring students taking their A-Levels and my tutoring proved successful as many of my students went on to achieve very top marks in their exams. By focusing on bad exam technique and trying to eliminate common mistakes in essay writing it allowed me to greatly improve ability. Encouragement is something I have always found to be a worthy asset in tutoring as it empowers the tutee and provides the comfortable atmosphere needed for the student to excel. I aim to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that differs from the classroom so students can get to appreciate the texts and their various nuances without the pressures of a classroom.

Personal Description:
I am a highly qualified professional tutor with 6 years tutoring experience at a range of levels, from ks2 to Master's, both in groups and one-on-one, and wide professional experience. My specialist areas are English Literature and Language, and History at A level. I also tutor Media Studies. I specialize in essay/dissertation writing and editing as well as exam technique.

My academic qualifications include an honours degree in History and Philosophy, and a Master's degree in Media Studies. As an EFL teacher I have CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching) and have taught in Spain. I also have a Higher National Diploma in Film and Television production and a Postgraduate Diploma in Russian Language. My recent MA research has been into influences of language in media on educational environments. I currently am pursuing a PhD in Education.

I hold an enhanced DBS certificate (issued July 2016).

Teaching Experience:

I have 6 years tutoring experience at a range of levels, from ks2 to Master's, both in groups and one-on-one, and wide professional experience. I have taught in both English and Scottish education systems, and including the ebacc system, and coached for American style SATs.
As a teacher I have also taught in English as a foreign language to all ages and in a variety of contexts.

Tutoring Approach:

I welcome and enjoy tutoring students at all levels of attainment and learning style, and I regard being able to tailor my approach to the needs and capabilities of the individual student as key to my success.
I have had great results with teaching students about clarity and structure of their writing, which is one of the hardest skills to acquire and one of the most important for academic success.

Personal Description:
I am a part qualified actuary working for a professional financial services firm in London. I live in Southampton with my family.

I studied Mathematics with Actuarial Studies at University of Southampton and obtained a 1st Class degree. I have gone on to pursue the actuarial professional qualification which I am writing exams for. My passion is teaching which I have done in varying capacities over the years.

Teaching Experience:

I did a placement at a high school which enabled me to gain valuable teaching experience and from that time I have engaged in one-on-one tutoring to help Maths GCSE and A Level students increase their competence in tackling the subject.

From the time I was in high school, Mathematics was my favourite subject and I have endeavoured to learn as much of it as I could, hence my career path. I have always offered a helping hand to others, teaching them what I had learnt in order to increase their understanding of concepts and theories.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to first understand where the student stands in their competency. I also aim to understand the relationship and attitude the student has towards Mathematics. This will help to map out a development program for them going forward so that they are built up in confidence and ability.

Having previously struggled with Mathematics but managed to turn it into one of my strong points, I have the personal experience to empathise with anyone who may find it difficult and I can offer a solution that will help upskill any student.

Personal Description:
Having graduated less than 6 months ago, I was a student and school pupil very recently too, meaning I can offer a different perspective and approach to most teachers and textbooks.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since my final year of school and always with good results. Most importantly, I have always managed to build good relationships with my students and establish the relaxed and informal atmosphere so important for productive learning.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone learns differently and I will find the best way for you, focusing on understanding rather than rote learning. This is much easier and more effective in a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere, something I try to establish in every session: learning doesn't have to be a chore!
