Personal Description:
Hi, everyone,The academic year is now a term old and things are ticking along nicely for almost all my students of 2016-17. Sadly two have had to drop out of school/college studies because of personal issues which is sad, when the time is right, these two very bright individuals will come back to studying, I'm sure.

I am more busy than ever this year but do have perhaps one or two spaces for students keen to just improve or to transform themselves and their fortunes. However bad things seem, I can show you how make the best of your talents.

TWO EXAM PAPER NOTICES

A couple of examination paper notices.

1. I am now OCR trained for the new AS level source/essay paper. Obviously this has given me a clear insight into how it's marked and how students need to approach it to be successful.
2. Secondly, the ED Excel Y13 A2 sources & essay paper (three secondary sources): I worked with four students on this last year and achieved spectacular results (these pupils can be contacted; some won't be able to put referees up here because I found all 4 of them via word of mouth and the UK's other major tutoring site). I'm very happy to report that I worked hard and thought hard on refining my advice on the paper and it has clearly paid off handsomely. Do contact me for details; I can pass these on to you prior to your making a decision on whether to engage me (or not as the case may be). Naturally anyone re-taking the A2 paper in 2017 can benefit from this. The new EdExcel History exam has a similar paper so this year's cohort of Y13 students should be able to benefit too.

Note. Because I'm away for the next 3 weeks carrying out research in London and Reading for my PhD I will not be able to begin lessons this year until the last week of September.

Plus:

Important policy change! If your young one or you, the student, is/are one who is not prepared to be coached and trained as our Olympic athletes are - and by this I mean that the performer puts themselves in the hands of the coach and doesn't try to tell them how to do the job - then please do not get in touch: simply pass on to another tutor somewhere else on this site.

And now, The Pitch!

So, my name is Craig, a very dedicated one-to-one tutor of History, Politics and English. I offer an exceptionally high level of expertise as a history, politics (and English) teacher, teacher of essay writing, exam writing and exam taking. This is based on well over two decades of experience in schools and in homes. Though I have been teaching a long time, I am continually striving to improve the quality of my work, constantly analyzing the effect of my advice on performance and trying to perfect the art and craft of the job.

When not tutoring, most of my time is spent working (hard!) as a student too! I am just about to begin the third year of my PhD, supervised by Professor Tony Collins of De Montfort University, Leicester, undertaking research in 20th century British history. (Rugby fans might like to note at this point that Tony is the number one rugby historian - of all codes - in the world. All his books are very well worth reading.)


I am exceptionally well qualified. I have an MA (2011) in History and am now two years into my doctoral studies. I have written fiction and non-fiction. I have had experience in being an A level marker with an exam board. I have had long experience in teaching and preparing whole History & Govnt. & Politics year groups for A level, producing outstanding results.

I take on all types of students. Some need a lot of training, some need to be dragged away from a collision-course with failure, some need finessing, some need waking up, some need inspiring, some need a boost in confidence; some need more intellectual stimulation; all can and do improve their writing.

My chief strengths are: 1. I know how to teach students to write. 2. I know how to prepare them for exams. 3. My methods are clear, simple and work beautifully. 4. I care very much about the progression of my students. 5. I treat my work with them with the utmost seriousness. 6. But I'm a human being with a sense of humour! 7. I am very, very experienced. 8. As a parent of three children who have gone through the school and university experience, I understand what both the student and the parent is going through.

I am very happy to work with students online. I have found it to work extremely well.

More on my current research project...
I am currently working on doctoral research into the BBC, sport and social class, 1922-64, with Tony Collins at De Montfort University, Leicester. He is the director of DMU's International Centre for Sports History & Culture, a department of world renown, and the leading British powerhouse of sports history. I am very proud to be working with Tony and within the department. Undergrad students should note that I am working under one of the world's best historians, a 3-time winner of the prestigious Aberdare Prize for Sports Books.

Becoming a student again, beginning with the masters degree course at De Montfort University in 2010 has really helped my teaching. As well as keeping on top of developments in academic history. I am much better read! I know more! It has also taken me right back in touch with what it feels like to be a student and all that follows from that. It has also enabled me to extend my tutoring potential to undergraduates and masters students.

I'm happily married with 3 children fully grown (it's only their father who's lagging behind).

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 24 years in secondary schools in Bromley, Kent and Derbyshire where I now live. History was my specialism but I was head of Politics for a number of years in the last part of my school career. I also taught Geography, Economics, English and R.E.

Since beginning to tutor students, I have taught history, Government & Politics and English (including basic literacy skills to a young person with dyslexia). Courses taught have mostly been those at GCSE and A level.

I have taught a wide range of topics within French, German, Russian and British history. The list includes the usual suspects: causes of World Wars 1 and 2, Hitler and the Third Reich, the French Revolution (and its causes) and Napoleon; also Tsarist Russia, the Russian revolution and Stalin as well as the European Reformation, France in the 16th century, Louis XIV and aspects of Irish and Chinese history and 19th century France, plus 20th century USA. politics (Boom and Bust, New Deal and Post-War Boom, and also the Witchcraft Persecution in Europe (1550-1680).

In terms of British history I am very much up to speed with all aspects of its 20th century political history (high politics, parties, electoral history, social history & economic history, right through to the 21st century, in fact); I have also taught most aspects of 19th history, social, economic and political. For the last decade and a half of my school-teaching career I taught the A level course in 16th and 17th century - The Tudors, James I, Charles I, Causes of the English Civil War, Charles II, James II & the Glorious Revolution, the reigns of William & Mary & Queen Anne.

I have recently added 19th century British politics (Reform Bill through Peel, Palmerston, Disraeli and Gladstone to Salisbury) and Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe to my "roster" of topics.

Since becoming a PhD student my expertise level in terms of content knowledge has leaped forward in 20th century British history. However...

...it isn't the historical content of the course that matters so much: technique is the key; know-how; how to write; how to take an exam; how to prepare for the whole exam period; how to approach the whole thing mentally, psychologically; how to be the best you can be; how to be successful - end of story!

I have worked with students on exam preparation and revision, coursework planning and execution and essay writing techniques. It is here that the battle to improve and to reach a fulfillment of potential, often with the reward of high grades, is usually won.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't tinker around the margins of issues. I give students something all those who come for help require: a method to use to dispose of the problems posed by the issue of writing that dreaded thing: the essay! Not a tinkering round the edges of the thing, a tip here, a bit of advice there, but a comprehensive yet simple and absolutely clear set of actions and principles through which the student can fulfill their potential: show the examiner what they know and understand of the topic.

Following on from the above, my approach to tutoring begins and ends with the drive to be successful. If I did not unfailingly improve students, help them to achieve the grades they want and need I would not be writing this.

In between comes what we might describe as philosophy and methods. It's hard to write about methods without immediately mentioning what I suppose might be my strongest "offer" (I don't much like that word but there, I've used it). As a schoolteacher I developed a unique but simple method of essay planning and writing that achieved stunning results. So successful has it been over 20 years that I am astonished that no one else seems to have found it. But in my experience up to February 2013 no teacher has. Essay writing is still something that many, many students find difficult and confusing. It really does not need to be this way.

Obviously content issues are hugely important and here I rely on my communication skills which have yet to let me down! These, naturally, go hand in hand with a knowledge of British and European history across a variety of years which has grown over recent years particularly through my MA studies, my PhD research and through working with students on a range of historical periods, topics and people. I find myself to be adaptable to different types of students. I am able to adapt my language and my technique to fit the situation. I am also somewhat stubborn in that I never give up on solving a problem. If we have to go over time, so be it!

Finally, some more of my personal philosophies of teaching. I believe that students generally do not achieve their potential. With each student I aim to take them to standards (and grades) that they did not think were possible. Without exception I push, push and push until we run out of time as we inevitably do. I also do not believe in lost causes. Much can be achieved in a very short space of time. I have seen this happen over and over again.

There is much more to be said but that, I hope, will do for now.

Personal Description:
Iain was born in 1986 in Dundee, Scotland into a large musical family, so unsurprisingly making music was all that he wanted to do from an early age. He first began to learn the trumpet in school aged seven, before joining his local brass band Dundee Instrumental on cornet at the age of ten. By the age of twelve, Iain had been promoted to principal cornet, a position he later went on to hold with several of Scotland's top bands, also including the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland. Many solo competitions were won along the way - including the junior section at the British Open Solo Championships at age eleven. Having gained two Trinity College diplomas before the age of eighteen, Iain took the advice of teacher David James and moved south to study music at the University of Salford, where his playing really began to blossom. Since then Iain has held positions as principal cornet with many of the UK's leading brass bands including his current seat with the world renowned Leyland Band. He has enjoyed many successful contest and concert performances, and is fast establishing a reputation as one of the finest cornet soloists of his generation, performing, adjudicating and giving master-classes as far afield as the USA, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Japan. In 2009 Iain was the recipient of a prestigious Dewar Arts award, awarded for performance in trumpet. This award allowed him to complete his postgraduate studies at Salford, graduating with an MA in Music (performance) in 2010. Iain is now a cornet tutor at the University of Salford where he is also undertaking researchinto focal dystonia in musicians, working towards a PhD. Iain recorded and released his first solo CD entitled "Vanguard" in August 2012, a release which has been met with great critical acclaim and has fast proven popular.

Iain is also an experienced guitarist and teacher of electric and acoustic guitar as well as the bass guitar.

Teaching Experience:

Salford University, Sefton Music Service, Love Music Trust, numerous private students, masterclasses and private teaching all over the UK as well as in the Netherlands, Denmark, USA, Japan, to name but a few.

Personal Description:
I have retired to this area where I enjoy living near the sea, and walking. I volunteer at our local theatre/cinema and sing in the choir at our Church in Southbourne. I have three grandchildren, two in London and one in USA and spend what time I can with them, using skype to talk to my family in USA. My husband and I both enjoy gardening.

Teaching Experience:

I am an Oxford graduate with more than 20 years of teaching experience in schools including A level maths and further maths (pure, statistics, and with a particular interest in mechanics). I have also given private tutoring to a large number of pupils from SATs to A levels. Many of those I have taught have returned for help with further exams, or have sent their friends to me, so most of my pupils have come through personal recommendation.

Tutoring Approach:

It gives me great pleasure to help those who struggle with maths to gain confidence and even come to enjoy the subject as well as helping the high fliers get their A grades. I expect pupils to work hard, but think it important to give work that is within their capability so the pupil can feel the achievement of getting things right.

Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching and consider myself both easy going and approachable, whilst being firm and demanding enough to get the best out of any potential student. I graduated with a 2:1 in Biochemistry (with a year in industry) from the University York. Following from my undergraduate degree I obtained an MRes with distinction in Molecular Plant Biology and Biotechnology at Imperial College London. This was followed by a further MRes with distinction in Urban Sustainability and Resilience at University College London. I am currently undertaking an Engineering doctorate at University College London, where my research area focuses on the production of algal biomass. The work falls within the fields of Biochemical and Environmental Engineering, and I have recently obtained research grants to pursue my work.

Teaching Experience:

At university I would often take part in student led tutorials and workshops, allowing me to hone my teaching and listening skills. I currently demonstrate in undergraduate laboratory classes and lead seminar discussions within my department. This university teaching experience is coupled with considerable prior activity in tutoring both friends, family and students of all ages in scientific subject areas, with high levels of success. I am currently tutoring key stage 3, and GCSE biology, chemistry and physics.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an informal teaching style and seek to understand the particular educational requirements of each individual tutee. To this end I will endeavor to promote educational development through note taking, written exercises, case studies, question and discussion periods, as well as with independent study. When the time comes for formal examinations the learning focus will shift to past paper practice and improving general examination technique. I have a firm belief in always being approachable for any type of question, great or small and l like to foster an inquisitive relationship with my tutee.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching 16-19 year olds and adult learners for over 13 years, mainly in London and more recently in N Ireland. I love teaching, enabling and helping others learn. I have vast amounts of experience working with young people and adults from a range of backgrounds and with a range of abilities. I understand the anxieties and challenges involved in being a learner; as well as teaching I too am a student, studying for a Degree in Counselling, so realise how important it is to give learners support, clear guidance and help them create a structure for their learning. These are all the things I need to be able to continue studying. I am a friendly, approachable and organised person who can genuinely get along with, hopefully, just about anyone. I am passionate about music, cinema, exercise, my friends and family. I am comfortable giving and receiving constructive feedback and dealing with other's emotions and anxieties. After 15 years working as a tutor/trainer/teacher I still believe learning is a reciprocal process and remain enthused by it.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years teaching experience.

- I am currently teaching A level/Access level Psychology, Counselling Qualifications at various levels & HND courses

- Prior to that, I was Head of Psychology (A level) and Lead Lecturer at Tower Hamlets College - responsible for all aspects of teaching and learning. I have taught a range of syllabi including AQA, OCR & WJEC. I have also taught on numerous C&G introduction to teacher training courses and on part-time PGCE programmes as well as doing a significant amount of one-to-one work as a mentor of trainee teachers. In addition, I was a Tutor Leader, with responsibility for a case load of vulnerable 'at risk' learners.
- Birkbeck, University of London. Here I was a Psychology lecturer for open access adult courses including Foundations of Modern Psychology and Psychological issues in Adolescence. For the later I was solely responsible for developing the syllabus and all resources as well as the delivery and assessment of written work. Again, I am on sabbatical from this post.

- Over the years I have undertaken private tutoring for a range of learners - young people and adults, for both Psychology & Teacher-Training.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching and tutoring style is entirely learner-focused. I aim to empower learners to identity their own strengths and areas for development, but supporting them in this process. I prepare materials that will meet their needs, with an eye always on the syllabus and the skills needed in order to pass any assessment (exams or coursework).

An effective, warm, co-operative and empathetic working relationship is what I seek to establish from the start of the tutoring process. I encourage learners to be reflective and to review/self-assess the work they do, alongside any tutor feedback. I build in regular formal and informal assessment for all tutoring, giving learners a clear sense of their journey, and their priorities at any given time during their studies. I ensure that work is marked to agreed deadlines and feedback is clear, constructive and developmental in nature. I am comfortable working in one-to-one settings, either face-to-face, over the phone or via an e-learning environment.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed a master's degree in Economics and am planning to pursue a PhD in the upcoming year. The exposure I gained throughout my studies has enabled me to become an extremely responsible, organized and motivated person and I put in utmost effort towards achieving my goals. My experiences have certainly allowed me to obtain skills which are necessary for this specific field.

Teaching Experience:

Over the past 7 years, I have been teaching A-Level Mathematics and Economics. I also teach degree level Economics, Mathematics, Statistics and Econometrics.

My students are from top universities- some of which include University of Cambridge, LSE, Royal Holloway, University College London, University of Bristol, Regents Business School, University of Edinburgh, King's College London, University of Warwick, University of Bath, University of Manchester, CAS Business School and the University of Westminster.

I also mentor students facing difficulties in terms of selecting modules and guide them during exam preparations. I also tutor students studying foundation degrees in order to assist them in achieving the grades required for universities they aspire to join.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always possessed a passion for working with young people, focusing on discussing their individual goals in order to be the window through which many young people will see their future. I focus on motivating my students by using creative and inspirational methods of teaching. What makes me stand out from the rest of the crowd is my different approach in teaching because of which students enjoy my classes and seek out to me for new ideas. My goal is not to simply teach students, it more about investing in them with all my effort. I have always believed in helping students in setting realistic goals and assisting them in achieving standards which maximize their potential. I seek ways to branch out my knowledge and passion for teaching. Gaining confidence and trust of my students is essential to me. Therefore, I ensure that I employ teaching techniques which aim at developing a mutual understanding with my students which helps them feel comfortable while seeking my assistance. I am flexible with my teaching methods in order to cater to the particular requirements of every student that I teach. I work towards establishing a rapport with my students, and put in sincere effort in assisting them with their education patiently, in every way possible.

I previously studied the International Baccalaureate instead of A Levels and whilst doing this tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French - she went from a C to an A with just simple tutoring of the basics. I graduated with a 2:1, with all my grammar modules being awarded a first.
My year abroad was spent with a French company, improving my French by being surrounded by solely French speakers! I returned from working and living in the French language feeling hugely confident in my foreign language abilities across all disciplines (listening, reading, writing and speaking).
Currently, I work in construction but use my French to liaise with occasional sub contractors and supply chain. Tutoring would be my way of continuing with French before being able to get employed by a French construction company down the line.
I believe that I have a friendly approach to tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned, I tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French. Over the 9 month period, we improved on her basic grammar skills and reading and listening skills also. As well as this, I have helped (not necessarily tutored, but essentially, tutored) several friends at different subjects that we both studied, particularly GCSE History and IB Biology Standard. I have a brother who sat his GCSEs in June 2013 and as most of our subjects were the same, I tutored him and tested him often in the subjects that I took at IB. From this site, which I joined in December 2012, I gained one student very quickly and during our 4 months tutoring sessions, she improved her basic understanding tremendously, progressing from a D to a B for her oral exam in April. My tutoring has continued as part of my job at a school, holding outside the classroom small group sessions, as well as being a tutor for my landlady in French. My success rate demonstrates my ability to work well as a tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

In terms of my approach to tutoring, I like to assess what the tutee finds difficult and try and work in a different way to how they are accustomed to to see if it helps at all. I draw a lot from my experiences as a student as I have found the ways in which I have been taught very easy to understand. I would like to say that my approach is a lot more suited to children because, like them, I am a student too and I understand what they are coping with and how their mind works. Listening is of key importance and I make sure that I listen to what my tutee is trying to say.

PLEASE NOTE: Although I tutor GCSE History, I would like to specify that it would just be for the Germany option.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Ragy, and I am a Princeton University undergrad who just loves teaching and tutoring. I have taught all ages in multiple countries. My areas of expertise range from English and math to the sciences and Arabic. I can teach all ages and all levels. I am also a very experienced standardized testing tutor in tests like the SAT and TOEFL. I hold a TEFL certification as well.

Teaching Experience:

English and math SAT tutoring; middle school English and math tutoring and science; science tutoring at high school level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very lax and free. I am not intending to just get done with it as much as actually make the student understand and have fun with what he or she is learning. I try to make class setting as relaxed yet at the same time studious as possible, trying to make students benefit as much as possibe from their tutoring time.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher of English for over 10 years and have worked in the UK, Japan, UAE, Qatar and Italy. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to experience different cultures and education. I worked in British International Schools that all followed the British Curriculum.
I have a great passion and enthusiasm for my subject and I love to share this with my students. I hope I can make a difference and help those who have potential but are currently lacking confidence and under achieving. With support they are able to meet their own expectations.

Teaching Experience:

An experienced English teacher of 9 years. In this time I have been head of department and KS3 Co-ordinator. I have a thorough knowledge of many examination boards and I have also been a marker. I have a good understanding of the curriculum and how to achieve the required levels/grades.

I have recently learned that the students I tutored last term (academic year 2014-2015) all gained C and above in English Language and Literature. This is a reflection of my input but more so the dedication and motivation of my tutees. I am very proud of their commitment and hard work.

Tutoring Approach:

I think tuition should not be thought of by the student as extra homework but more one of support and advice. It is the opportunity to have one to one lessons in a safe and comfortable environment. My approach is positive , tailored to the needs of each student and relevant.

Teaching Experience:

I am an English Mentor at my 6th form for the lower years, teaching spelling, grammar, synonyms and essay writing. I help them prepare notes and help them study for their upcoming exams. I am also helping out at Homework club for the year sevens and eights, who appreciate my help!

Tutoring Approach:

I will ask what they are struggling with, how they think I should help them and what they need to work on. I will ask them to do a practise essay question and I will check through it, and go through their mistakes and what they need to do to correct it. I will create a list of what they need to focus on the most and the least, and rotate each tutoring session as such. One day spelling, one day sentence structure, one day editing, and so on.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Kathryn, I am 32 years old and hold a doctorate in quantitative fisheries science. Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher at Bangor University Ocean Sciences, conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis in fisheries science. I love my postdoc and I have a passion for teaching. My career goal is to become a lecturer. At the moment I don't lecture within the university so I would like to tutor, which is something I have lots of experience in over the past years and is something that I love doing. I particularly enjoy enabling others with learning and building a relationship through that. Scholarship is something very close to my heart with a personal passion for learning. I feel privileged to be able to help others and enjoy working with different styles and learning techniques. I am a very understanding person and like to make anyone I work with feel positive about their learning. I can work to the pace of the student and am happy to adapt my teaching and expectations to what is best for the student, which is decided upon by both of us.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutoring experience from the last 9 years where I started in London teaching GCSE biology and A-Level psychology. Since then I have tutored many different fields of biological and ecological sciences at graduate level (Bachelor level). I have had experience delivering tens of lectures at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and Bangor University. I have marked coursework and provided teaching and support for multiple practical sessions. I have a particularly engaging attitude and am always available for extra support for all levels of students. I started my teaching career as a classroom assistant when I was studying at Cardiff University and since then have always had a passion for helping others learn. The first time someone understands a concept or develops their own ideas as a result of it is an empowering step and can be used to fuel a thirst for more understanding. I have worked with individuals and small groups, larger groups and classrooms as well as lecture theaters.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a student focused approach. Teaching should be conducted with the learner in mind. Everyone learns in different ways. some people like to learn on their own, others through discussions or interactive set-ups. Most people don't know how best they learn as this is not a focus in current education, so this is something I will talk to the student about and something that we can identify and develop together. I create a safe learning environment where there is no such thing as a silly question or answer. I have a passion for people and learning should always be enjoyable, so my sessions reflect this. I understand the way that information is processed and make best use of presenting well organised information that is often re-capped and constantly placed in the wider context. Feedback is one of the best ways that a student can learn and encouraging self-feedback is something I feel strongly is a fantastic way to learn. I have a very positive attitude and am understanding and like to push my students. I will ensure that learning is maximised by tailoring it to the individual and I encourage different styles of working, for example marking your own work with a marking scheme, discussions, questioning the status quo and what if scenarios. I also enjoy receiving feedback from the students so that I can constantly check that I am making the most of our time together. Overall my sessions are applicable, fun and challenging, and no two sessions are the same.

Personal Description:
Hello and welcome to my profile! It's great to have you here!

OK, so I'll tell you a little about myself… My name is Aman. I am a qualified EFL/ESL teacher and I have been working abroad for the last 16 years in different countries from Thailand to Dubai.

For the last 5 years I was working with the British Council as an academic manager in Qatar. Here I was managing educational programmes and a team of teachers, which I loved! I provided training for teachers and worked on curriculum development.

When I am not working, I love movies, music, socialising and meeting new people and learning about new cultures! I am also a big coffee drinker.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching English as a foreign language.

I have taught students of all levels from beginner to advanced and have worked with students from all over the world helping them to improve and develop their general English language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking by designing lessons to bring out their full potential.

In addition to teaching general English, my ELT specialism for my Cambridge DELTA was Exam Preparation Classes. Therefore, I have solid experience and knowledge of helping learners prepare for the IELTS exam and get the band they want by focusing on the strategies needed in each module. Moreover, I can also help you prepare for the Cambridge First (FCE) exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, the heading states 'Approach to Tutoring', I look at it as 'Our Approach to Learning'.

Together, we will look at YOUR English language goals, and the best way to achieve them, as every learner has different needs.

Lessons are learner-centred, that means I do not teach in a 'lecture' style, but provide opportunities for you to produce and practise language and then look at ways to further develop and improve that language. It is important for me that you feel comfortable and relaxed in these sessions. Lessons should be enjoyable and engaging for you (and me!).

There is error correction throughout lessons, but this is where you will self-correct with my guidance making you more aware of which areas need more focus.

Depending on your level, I use a range of materials from coursebooks, internet, newspapers, magazines to podcasts and videos.

I will give you regular homework, which will help to reinforce what you have learnt and give you more independence in using English. My aim is for you to feel more confident in any situation where you have to use English.

Feel free to contact me and let's talk about what you need. You can ask me any questions and I'll be happy to explain.

There is no obligation and don't worry, I don't bite!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aman
