Personal Description:
I grew up in London and studied Theology through correspondence at the South African Theological Seminary. During my studies I also had the opportunity to go to South Africa on a 6 month charity placement, where. I worked in the townships teaching children aged 3-11. I also taught to secondary school age children.

I also obtained my teaching certificate (CertTESOL) at the London Lab in Holborn, which included teaching live classes to adult students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children and adults from a range of different nationalities including those from France, Spain, Italy, Japan as well as Azerbaijan.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a passion for helping people develop their confidence in not only reading and writing English but also in their speech as well.

I understand the importance of speaking proficient English in school and in the workplace. Getting to work with students from all backgrounds is a joy for me.

Using a combination of visual aid and interactive activities, I develop programmes for students if all learning styles to engage in my lessons. I also tailor the pace and style to each individual.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Spanish with many years of experience in teaching the language to children, young people in their GCSE and A Level courses, and adults who want to learn Spanish for business or holidays. I have a very interactive and friendly approach to teaching. The structure of the courses is very clear from the beginning but, ultimately, the content and the pace of the lessons is always determined by the students. The emphasis is on having good fun while learning, and a lot of the material used in the lessons is original. As a native speaker, I always make sure that the learning experience also includes cultural aspects of the country. I am absolutely sure that you will enjoy the courses.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher of Spanish and a native speaker of the language. For the last 23 years, I have taught Spanish at different Secondary schools in Kent. I have also taught the language privately to adults wanting to learn or improve their command of the language for business or holiday purposes, and also to young people wanting to improve their chances of a good GCSE or A Level grade in Spanish. I am an examiner for AQA and I have taught Spanish GCSE and A Level courses for Edexel and AQA for many years. So, I am very familiar with the course contents.

Tutoring Approach:

The lessons that I teach are always interactive and practical. Students dictate both the content and the pace of the lessons and the aim is always to make the learning experience enjoyable. For example, if you are an adult wanting to improve your Spanish for holidays, we would reproduce in the lessons the situations that you would normally find yourself in while on holiday in Spain or any other Spanish-speaking country: greeting people, ordering food and drink, finding your way around, buying things, travelling around, asking for help, socialising, etc... As a native speaker, I always make sure that the learning experience also includes cultural aspects of the country.

Personal Description:
Hello I`m Sophie !

I`m a friendly, patient 22 year old, with an extensive background in biology, making me ideal for GCSE and A-level tuition. I have a first class BSc (hons) in Biomedical sciences and am now training as a dentist. Biology is the foundation that has given me so many career opportunities and I am determined to help school students excel and enjoy it.

Prospective medical/dental and life science applicants will particularly benefit from my experience. I have current, first hand knowledge on the application and interview processes, the dynamics of the courses and how to get ahead and succeed in gaining entry to these competitive programmes.

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Teaching Experience:

For those targeting medical/dental school and the related subjects I can offer particularly close support. Early and thorough preparation is fundamental for success on to these competitive courses.

Everyone is different in the way in which they learn. We will go at a pace that is most effective for the tutee`s learning, using teaching methods and mediums they find most helpful.

Personal Description:
I have recently returned home to Northern Ireland after completing my PGCE and 6 years teaching experience in Newcastle Upon Tyne. In my career to date I have worked as classroom teacher as well as Head of Spanish. I have had specific responsibility for teaching Spanish and French to GCSE level and Spanish to A-level. In recent years I have had 93% A*-C success at GCSE level and 100% A*-C at A-level.

I hold a joint BA Hons degree in French and Spanish from Trinity College Dublin, which I achieved in 2009. During my time at Trinity I spent a year "off-books" in order to teach English as a Foreign Language Assistant in France and I spent 3 months studying in Spain. These experiences allowed me to immerse myself in the cultures and improve my fluency in each language.
I love languages and have always had a passion for learning languages and teaching.

Teaching Experience:

Park View School, August 2012 - August 2016: Teacher of French & Spanish, Head of Spanish
All Saints College, January 2011 - August 2012: Subject Leader of Spanish
Queen Elizabeth High School, September 2010 - January 2011: Teacher of French to A-level and Spanish

I am trained to teach both French and Spanish to A-level, however in recent years I have gained more experience teaching A-level Spanish. I have taught Spanish at both AS and A2 level, with specific responsibilities for teaching grammar, topic work, speaking skills, essay writing skills, and the regional topic for which I developed and completed three successful Spanish Exchanges with a school in Ciudad Real, Castilla-La Mancha. To date I have 100% A*-C success rate at AS and A2 level.
I have also taught French and Spanish to GCSE level and I have carried out numerous speaking exams. I work hard to ensure that my pupils are fully prepared and confident before sitting a speaking exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe I am a friendly, approachable individual and I have been commended for my positive rapport and warm relationship with my pupils. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, however I feel that one-to-one tutoring provides the opportunity to concentrate wholly on possible weaknesses and work together to overcome and master the language.

Personal Description:
am an experienced A Level teacher and examiner for Economics. I currently teach both Economics and Business Studies to A Level and have helped in excess of 150 students achieve an A or an A*. The majority of the students that I work with will increase their grades by at least 1 whole grade.

I am one of London`s leading exam technique experts and regularly deliver exam focused workshops focusing on improving the analytical and evaluative skills that students so often lack and don`t focus on.

I can support you with carefully structured private lessons and guide you with the knowledge that I have gained as examiner for several of the main exam boards for both Business Studies and Economics.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring GCSE and A Level Economics and Business Studies (AQA and Edexcel for both Economics and Business). I mark exam papers for Economics and Business studies so can easily tailor your specific tutoring requirements to the exam requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

I will carrry out an inital assessment with you to ascertain where you struggle most of all, following this inital assessment we will set a plan to follow, setting target grades and regular assessment for you to complete. I will ensure that your lessons are fun and interactive but with the main aim of improving your target grade. I will ensure that the lessons are fun, interactive but most important of all ensure that you improve your understanding and therefore your final grade.

I am happy to take questions on homework that you are stuck on during the week and encourage you to do so. Please see the previous feedback.

APPROACH TO TUITION

Tailoring tuition to suit the student
The advantage of one-to-one tuition is that I can assess what specific needs a student has, and organise my lessons around those needs. Some students need essay technique help some have a specific set of topics they want to go over others might need an entire course taught to them as they have left school or are being home educated.

Knowing the syllabus
All GCSEs and A Levels follow a national syllabus, and I know them all very well. In my first lesson with any student I will make sure they are aware of the overall requirements of the syllabus, on a topic-by-topic basis. I will always stick to what the student needs to know to pass that particular syllabus I do not needlessly make students learn things they do not need to know.

Digital handouts
In my years of tuition, I have built up a cloud-based digital archive of hundreds of handouts. Say a student is learning about arguments for the existence of God for RS A Level - I have handouts very clearly outlining the Ontological, Teleological and Cosmological arguments and all relevant criticisms. These handouts are a great extra help alongside my teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have thousands of hours of tuition experience, having taught hundreds of students. I have dozens of letters of recommendation. Some of the specific subjects I have taught include:

Government & Politics (Edexcel and OCR)
Cambridge Pre-U Theology & Philosophy
Philosophy A Level (AQA, OCR and Edexcel)
Religious Studies (OCR, AQA and Edexcel) GCSE, A Level
Sociology (AQA) AS and A2
Theology and Religious Studies at degree level (I have helped six different students receive good grades for third year RS dissertations)
Oxbridge applications and interview practice

I have a written reference from a doctor of Philosophy and college chaplain at Cambridge University, as well as an excellent reference from my full-time tutoring placement for the last year.

Extracts from letters of recommendation (all available in full on request):

"Incredibly reliable and professional...James' superior knowledge and passion for his subject resulted in my son gaining both in confidence and ability and led him to succeed in achieving a Distinction grade when his school had predicted a Merit."
Mother of Pre-U student, 2013.

"James's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend James highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"A great source of help to my daughter over the past two years; making smooth preparations for her to retake her AS level, alongside her continuing work towards her A level. He contributed invaluably towards her outstanding AS level pass mark of 100% . For her A2, Olivia received an A."
Mother of Philosophy A Level (AQA) Candidate, 2012/13.

"James was an excellent tutor. He explained complex ideas clearly and tailored his tutoring to suit my son. Importantly, he acted as a strong motivator and made sure rigourous revision notes were made... humourous, friendly and a good natured motivator. My son received an A*".
Mother of GCSE Religious Studies student (OCR), 2012/13.

"He immediately established a very good working relationship with my daughter which encouraged her to really engage with the subject and plan and think about the topics in depth. He helped her with the structure of her essays and how to build up a coherent and well thought out argument...I would highly recommend James as a Philosophy tutor."
Mother of Religious Studies (OCR) student, 2012/13.

"Jame's enthusiasm, attention to detail and ability to make the lessons interesting and absorbing has paid off...I cannot recommend Jame's highly enough. He is punctual and thoughtful and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future."
Mother of homeschooled A2 candidate taught full time for a year in History (Edexcel), Sociology (AQA) and Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2011/12.

"James was very familiar with the curriculum and both his discussions with my son and the work set were of an appropriate and challenging level, set work was always marked and discussed at the following tutorial. My son received a good Distinction in his exams."
Mother of Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), 2013.

"My daughter was unable to attend school due to illness, and so James was entirely responsible for her preparation. She received a Distinction in her exams. James was a diligent tutor, who managed to convey this difficult subject with a lightness of touch. I know that my daughter enjoyed her lessons enormously, and that she found it easy to learn from James. He not only imparted the necessary knowledge but also inspired her with confidence."
Mother of homeschooled Pre-U Philosophy & Theology student (Cambridge), who I taught the entire syllabus to in 2012/13.

"James was brilliant. Despite tutoring my two twin daughters at the same time, he adapted his teaching style to suit both of them differently. He made the whole course much easier for them to understand than they had found at school. Beyond this, he boosted their confidence and increased their essay writing skills. He provided a large amount of digital handouts which they also found useful. Both girls ended up with very high As in all the topics he taught them in."
Mother of twin daughters taught in Religious Studies (OCR) and Philosophy (AQA), 2012/13.

"...James covered far more content than the school had taught in a whole year and to a greater depth and understanding. His knowledge of the syllabus and ability to explain complex philosophical arguments and content, in a way that my daughter could understand, was second to none... put back a confidence in my daughter that had been partly destroyed in this subject due to poor teaching at school. I have never seen my daughter so relaxed and happy after taking an exam than she was after re-taking these two."
Mother of homeschooled candidate in Religious Studies (Edexcel), 2012/13.

Tutoring Approach:

Tailoring tuition to suit the student
The advantage of one-to-one tuition is that I can assess what specific needs a student has, and organise my lessons around those needs. Some students need essay technique help some have a specific set of topics they want to go over others might need an entire course taught to them as they have left school or are being home educated.

Knowing the syllabus
All GCSEs and A Levels follow a national syllabus, and I know them all very well. In my first lesson with any student I will make sure they are aware of the overall requirements of the syllabus, on a topic-by-topic basis. I will always stick to what the student needs to know to pass that particular syllabus I do not needlessly make students learn things they do not need to know.

Digital handouts
In my years of tuition, I have built up a cloud-based digital archive of hundreds of handouts. Say a student is learning about arguments for the existence of God for RS A Level - I have handouts very clearly outlining the Ontological, Teleological and Cosmological arguments and all relevant criticisms. These handouts are a great extra help alongside my teaching.

Personal Description:
It is a pleasure for me to offer you the best of my competence and experience in the field of teaching languages.
My major strengths are: getting right to transmit my knowledge to the students, organization to elaborate the lesson plans to achieve the best class activities, patient with those pupils that have some difficulties in the learning of languages. I usually apply pedagogical techniques and dynamic activities according to the student's skills, I also, respect and value the effort my students do to learn and to get good grades. I can say that I have always been enthusiastic about teaching, so it encourages me to study modern languages in a Pedagogical University.
I have been living in Birmingham since July 2010, and my Entry Clearance visa entitles me to work immediately as well as my National Insurance Card. In the same way I hold the UK NARIC National Recognition of my degree as British Bachelor Degree Standard and the GCSE (grades A-C) Credit Standard on a subject for subject basis.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with primary students in some schools, moreover with high school levels, and besides with university students. Likewise I have worked as a teacher with adult people in Language academies.
My relevant work experience is:
Venezuelan School, I and II primary levels. January to November 2009 Venezuela. Cela Spanish School, Spanish . August to December 2008 Venezuela. University of East (UDO), Semester I.

Personal Description:
I am Spanish. I have 25 years old. I have been living in London from more than one year ago. I am a very happy, active, polite, intelligent person. Also, I consider myself a very creative person who think that the process of learn has to be something natural, the person has to enjoy it. I like teach and at the same time learn from my students. I have skills in art, music, martial arts (Im black belt in Taekwondo), Maths... For me the most important thing is the discipline and motivation to learn.
Right now, I am learning English and Japanese. I like a lot classic music, my favourite composer is Bach. I like to play piano as well, learn about oriental customs, specially from Japan.
I am working teaching taekwondo to children and also in a coffee shop.

Teaching Experience:

I have a official degree of "Teacher of Music" in Primary school ( 6- 12 years old). I am waiting the Qualified teacher status (QTS). I have experience teaching children in all range of ages. All the teachers that I had consider myself a creative person. I use alternatives ways to teach using real examples, giving the motivation to learn all kinds of subjects. I have experience specially in art, maths and Spanish language.

Also, I can teach adults conversational Spanish. (I can teach grammar, but I consider that I can give to you material and you can do it at home, so we spend the time in the most important thing, conversation) In this way the student improve and learn spanish in a natural way. I can have all kind of conversation, like economy, sport, videogames, anime, manga, computers, animals, music, films, customs ... you can have a great time and at the same time you are learning spanish!!

Tutoring Approach:

For childrens I would like to focus the process in the motivation to learn, using real examples, draws and different materials that made it keep in a easy natural way in the mind.

I think that the teachers has to adapt everything depending of the children or adult. We have to take in count the hobbies and the personality of the persons and then, we have to choose the best way to guide them to have the most efficient way to learn.

I would like to focus teaching Spanish language but I am open to teach another kind of subject.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact me.

Personal Description:
PhD Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering

BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (First class honours)

Teaching Experience:

I have formal teaching/lecturing experience and working as a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at a University in London. I have been tutoring privately physics and mathematics to number of GCSE and A-levels students for neary last ten years. I have also tutored various BEng level engineering modules to University students. Testimonials or references can be provided upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which students feel more comfortable and confident to raise questions. I like to listen to my students being at their level to address and identify the basic difficulties that they face in understanding the subjects. I try to involve the students in problem solving and present the subjects in an interesting manner with the help of useful hints that are often required and are proved to be helpful to provoke the original thought in order to improve their analytical and problem solving skills. I find myself committed and patient and I believe that such teaching skills make me ideal for tutoring. I frequently highlight the practical implications of the subjects where possible so that the students could relate the subjects to real world problems. I am happy to concentrate on the specific areas that the student struggles with. The focus of my approach is to prepare students for the final exams by developing the required skills such as time management, stress/pressure handling and analytical thinking etc. I believe, the deeper understanding of the mathematical sciences could only be achieved through the intensive practice.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (30 p.h.)

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 graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer and Network Technology. I then began working for an IT company as a computer technician, based within a local university, which gave me exposure to all sorts of IT problems! I then went on to run a chain of computer repair, maintenance and upgrade shops and have been doing this ever since.

I use ALL versions of Microsoft Windows from XP to Windows 8.1 daily, along with Apple Mac's OS X. My customers are approximately between 16 to 80 years of age, and I enjoy passing my knowledge on, no matter how technical / non-technical you are! I just need extra money to pay for my wedding next year, and this is something I know I can do very easily, as it is an extension of my day-to-day job. Please get in touch for a chat with me on how to "Excel" in IT... get it? You will after you've got in touch!

Teaching Experience:

- Teaching new employees on computer repair best-practices and teaching analysts on how to use and configure new software at work.

- Teaching my customers on what went wrong and how to avoid it in the future!

- Providing private tuition on PC / Laptop usage, from basic operation such as web browsing, email and document creation and editing, all the way up to securing a computer from virus's and creating basic websites and setting up domains, and MANY other things in between.

Tutoring Approach:

I love to see a student perform a task after using the knowledge that I've passed in a "follow my lead" based learning. I explain how things work the way they do (if you want to know), and I explain the logic sequence of steps you must take in order to do something such as search for a new recipe or compose an email to a friend. Once the basic knowledge is there, I'll take you through how to use Google to answer 90% of life's questions!

I like to use analogies with my explanations on certain tasks, as people learn differently. However, normally I go through what it is I'm trying to teach at least once before going through it again with my student in a thorough manner.
