Personal Description:
I'm a University of Glasgow Biochemistry and MSc International Project Management graduate. I'm a French national and have been living in the UK for 21 years. I'm a lovely person, very dynamic and love the one to one of tutoring. It makes me really happy to help someone achieve something they have worked so hard for.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately now for 13 years and have seen my students come to grow in confidence, in understanding and in knowledge of their chosen topics. I saw a girl who I tutored for 7 months go from getting an 'Unclassified grade' in her Biology AS Level to a B in her A2. I have never seen a student of mine's grades stay the same post-tutoring and I am very proud of that.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring different ways depending on who the student is. I ask them questions about themselves, hobbies, favourite subjects etc; and then using that to better understand how they learn, I talk to them about their private learning and revision and the method of approach to that and to exams. And then I teach them using the method appropriate to their style of learning. I also set plenty of work and get them to do past papers which I send to them in the first week. I then take these away and mark them in my own time and return with a deeper view of where they are going wrong after they have been taught. I do 2hr concentrated sessions either weekly or fornightly and have seen great results not only in grades but also in enthusiasm for learning. I am also on hand to discuss career and university options too, which helps ease the daunting choices the students have to make.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

From September 2017 I will be studying for a Masters in History through the Open University.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

  • History
  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)

View Marinus's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English with many years of study, research and training in some of the world's top universities. My qualifications include a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in English Literature and the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in English, including Media Studies and Drama. My Initial Teacher Training covered all aspects of English and all abilities in the 11-18 age range. My interests, of benefit to many students especially at university level, include Critical Theory, Classical Literature, and African Literature. I have guided many students doing research and proof-read their dissertations. I have also taken the official training for one-to-one tutors rolled out by the government to complement classroom teaching. I also have experience as a GCSE English examiner for Edexcel and gained the status of Senior Examiner serving as Team Leader from the June 2013 exam series.

Teaching Experience:

My first teaching appointment came in 1988 in Cameroon where I taught English and African Literature, becoming an 'A' Level examiner for the Cameroon GCE examination board in 1990. I later took the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to the PGCE, finishing my last year as Education Student of the Year in my university and receiving a national commendation for the quality of my work. I have since taught in different schools in Kent and Medway, preparing students for exams such as Functional Skills, IELTS, GCSE, 'A' Level, IB and AEA. I have also given one-to-one tuition to looked-after teenagers under a government scheme as well as taught in a secure unit for which, in addition to enhanced disclosure CRBs, I was vetted over a six month period. My first long-term (over 3 months) supply position involved teaching GCSE English, 'A' Level English Literature, and the IB. Most of my teaching has been in selective (grammar) schools. I have also given English lessons in my local community as part of an outreach programme organised for speakers of other languages by my church where I teach Bible Studies also.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to establish the needs of the students and carefully review all available assessment records. If the student is preparing for a special exam such as the GCSE, I would start by ensuring that the student is aware of the full requirements of the exam and establish a clear plan to cover these. Alongside any such programme, I believe strongly in incorporating the fundamentals of English grammar which are sometimes overlooked in formal teaching settings. I like to build a good rapport with the student so that they are comfortable revealing possible areas of weakness that we could turn into strengths.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in mathematical physics and started tutoring while at university.
I have been a full-time professional tutor for over seven years and I teach maths and all science subjects from year 8 up to GCSE and for Common Entrance and Maths, Further maths, Physics and Chemistry to A-level.
I am an exam marker for the OCR exam board and I mark controlled assessments at a school in Ipswich.

Teaching Experience:

I initially started tutoring at university while I was doing my PhD and found that I had the ability to help pupils understand the underlying concepts of maths and physics. Instead of just giving my tutees the answers to questions, I always tried to provide interesting examples of the principles behind the topics being studied in order to give a deeper understanding of the subject.
I worked in IT for many years and started tutoring again after helping my daughters with their GCSEs and A-levels.
I have been a full-time tutor for over seven years. I have taught pupils from a wide variety of schools - including state, independent and boarding schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to ensure that my students have a good understanding of the underlying principles of the subjects. This ensures they can deal with a great variety of exam questions and enables them to get the best result possible.
I am patient and helpful and believe I have a good understanding of young people and how they learn and study.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in English Literature from the University of East Anglia where I also studied Creative Writing.

I am a freelance writer (mostly book reviews and articles on literature for the Guardian) and in 2013 I had my first book published by Transworld: Dedicated to... (a collection of found book-inscriptions which received some very nice national press).

I am currently writing my debut novel.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in 2014. Subjects taught so far have included Shakespeare (Macbeth) and Browning's Porphyria's Lover. (References available on demand). I have a good knowledge of literature and am able to research topics thoroughly and quickly.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe literature is best taught with enthusiasm, thereby making it accessable and less intimidating. Once a basic understanding of the work has been achieved it is easier to explore the more complex themes such as character, imagery, dramatic arc, etc.

Personal Description:
Having been born in London I am a native speaker of the English language. I have vast experience with speakers of other languages. I recently decided to make a career change and make teaching English to speakers of other language a professional career. I am CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualified. I am also two years into BA (hons) English Language and Literature degree and intend to continue my own personal development by studying for an MA English Language Teaching and Linguistics and by completing the DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) as soon as I am eligible.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught to classes of between six and eighteen students whilst training for the CELTA qualification. The students came from a variety of countries including: France, Italy, Turkey, South Korea, Spain, Chile, Colombia, Russia and Poland. I have taught many more personal one-to-one lessons, mainly within the South American community.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a number of different course books for teaching English and try to make the whole experience as relaxed, fun and interactive as possible. This is easier with larger numbers but can be achieved on a one-to-one basis with a little thought and effort. I use audio and visual materials. Each student will have a preferred method of learning and as individuals we are not usually aware of what type of learner we are, for this reason I employ a number of techniques to make the learning experience as beneficial as possible. The techniques I use are: linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, bodily-kinaesthetic, musical, inter-personal and intra-personal.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher for more than thirty years. I was a university lecturer and private tutor in Hungary and I continued teaching as a tutor when I came to England. I am passionate about teaching; helping pupils improve is very important to me.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I was teaching drama at different levels, as well as English literature and language. I started teaching Maths for younger children when I came to England. I also marked theses in Literature as a lecturer and advised students on writing papers in Literature. I taught several courses; for example, Essay writing, Language skills, Communication skills and Drama and Theatre. I based my drama lessons on my experiences as a Fulbright scholar at the Drama Department at the University of Oregon, USA.
I am especially enthusiastic about helping students with their essays; teaching them how to find focus and express their ideas precisely and coherently; organise and proofread their work; how to write a good introduction and conclusion.
Pupils I have taught have been admitted to Wolverhampton Girls' High School, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Chase Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient teacher. I have helped children and adults of different ages to achieve their goals. In my opinion anyone can improve; the teacher's role is essential in the process. It is my responsibility to understand individual needs and to make sure that I create the best learning environment both physically and psychologically.
I am friendly and strict at the same time.
It is very important to tailor lessons to individual needs. My main priority is to find the best way to help the student improve. Motivating them can take different forms: encouragement, gentle pressure, being more strict and so on. Every student is different; it is my responsibility to find the best approach.

Personal Description:
I got a bachelor's degree in political sciences and a master's degree in international relations at the University of Cagliari (Italy) with 110/110 as a final grade. My studies, together with the international experience of "Erasmus" in Romania, made me discover many sides of the political mechanisms, the cultures and the economies of different countries and areas of the world.
I reckon myself as a very easygoing and motivated person, always ready to cooperate with the workmates. Enthusiastic about the life and the new experiences, always keen to improve myself specially in the relations with the others.

Teaching Experience:

From 2007, in Italy, I started to provide private lessons of different subjects to young students, then in London I have privately helped foreign people in the study of the Italian language. The teaching training course which I followed at International House has given to me, in three months, the chance to learn, improve and practice important techniques in real classes, five lessons for beginners and six for intermediate students: Both execution and planning of a lesson have been tested with good results and personal satisfaction. I can prepare different levels of lessons for groups,business classes or one-to-one, following at the same time the logic and the variety.

Tutoring Approach:

The first goal of a tutor is to help the student as much as he can. Who is learning does not have to feel under pressure or under examination, so it is important to be relaxed and to prepare a logic lesson with exercises that can help the student step by step to build a knowledge of the language. It is essential also to provide adapt material, following the variety of the activities in order to avoid the repetitions which could be boring for the student. The enthusiasm and the motivation of the tutor are absolutely the first steps to provide a good result.

Personal Description:
I am a (young!) 50+ year old woman and my degree is in Mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' teaching experience of mathematics, mainly up to GCSE level but have also taught on a 1:1 basis as a home tutor for several years. I have taught adults and children from the age of 5. My main experience is at secondary level in the UK but I have also worked for a number of years in the USA and Australia. I have also worked for a number of years in the primary sector before qualifying as a teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach to students and am happy to work as an individual tutor and also to a small group. I have found home tutoring to be extremely rewarding and enjoy seeing the progress that students make. Once lessons begin, I am more than happy to be contacted by students via email as part of the agreement. I am happy to teach all ages from young children to adults who require maths tuition for work or personal development.

Personal Description:
Bonjour !

I am a French native tutor with 5 years experience of teaching French to pupils of various ages and levels of expertise.

As I am back to France, I deliver now online lessons and convesations through the internet.

What you will need is very simple: a computer with Skype on it, earphones and a good Internet access.
So, if you haven't yet found your French teacher to help you with your learning or if prefer to learn in the comfort of your home and spare the travel time, please contact me!

Teaching Experience:

ADULT
2011 - now: varied experiences in one to one or two to one tuitions:
- from survival to intermediate + GCSE exam preparation, A level exam preparation.

2011 - 2016: group class in a company, Trend Controls, Horsham- A1/A2 level
2012 - 2016: group class in a company, Trend Controls, Horsham- A0 level

CHILDREN
2015-2016: Maitresse for lespuces, Horsham, Early years French Clubs
2013- 2014:
- French teacher for Year 1 (KS1), Kingslea Primary School, Horsham (Volunteering)
2012-2013:
- French teacher for Reception (Fundation), Kingslea Primary School, Horsham (Volunteering)
- Private tuition with a 4 years' boy.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that having a native teacher is a huge advantage for students of the French language wanting to perfect their pronunciation, improve fluency and knowledge of both proper and currently spoken French.

My tuition is tailor-made and flexible, according to each pupil's needs and requirements.
I ask the pupil to do homework, as there is no learning without personal work.
Depending on the level, I prefer to follow a book, for example Façon de parler 1 for absolute beginners. I of course add exercises, explanations, texts and resources to the book.


Please feel free to contact me for any enquiry: I am available for weekly lessons or for a one-off session!

Alors, à bientôt j'espère !

Personal Description:
My name is Ed. I graduated from Durham University with 1st class honours in Maths and Physics. I have achieved straight A result with six A-levels including Maths, Further Maths, German, Physics, Chemistry and Chinese. I am an experienced tutor and have previously tutored students from a variety of schools and institutions. I am patient and my primary focus is to help you achieve your goals and objectives.

I currently work in the finance industry. I also work as a private tutor for a top tutoring company in central London. I am flexible and can travel to you.

I am available on the weekends as well as weekday evenings.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I can provide you references if required.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor at Bonas Macfarlane, London, July 2010 - Present
I tutor a variety of subjects at different levels from primary schools to A-levels. I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Chinese. I also offer service on giving academic advice as well as interview techniques for entering into top schools and universities in the UK.

Private Tutor at Bright Young Things, London, September 2012 - Present
Bright Young Things is the second largest tutoring agency after Bonas Macfarlane whom I also work for. With Bright Young Things my focus had been Maths at A-level and GCSE.

University Marker, Department of Mathematics, Durham University, October 2009 - May 2010
I mentored second year Maths undergraduates at Durham University. I have learned to work through the arguments and thought processes of others and give constructive feedback.

Sixth Form Tutor, Framwellgate Sixth Form College, Durham, October 2006 - June 2009
I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years. I helped all of my tutees achieve more than what they were initially targeting to achieve. I also learned to prepare teaching materials and adopt various teaching methods.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is as follows.

As for Maths and science related subjects, at the outset I will go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students through taking the initiative on specific and more challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are motivated and encouraged to constantly self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

As for German and Chinese, I strive to make the lesson as interactive as I can. I am experienced in teaching beginners as well as students that have learnt the language for a number of years.

I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

Personal Description:
I am currently a first year student at the University of Bedfordshire, studying Sport's Management, with a keen interest specifically in Sports Development.

Throughout my prior educational years I have had a strong passion for both Physical Education and History, and was able to learn a great deal under some fantastic teaching methods. Whilst in Primary School i was enrolled with a tutor and found the experience valuable and gave me a step ahead when taking exams.

Teaching Experience:

Although no current teaching experience, I have realised that eventually I would like to go into a full time teaching role, and with my previous experience would find an opportunity of tutoring and teaching extremely rewarding.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is that learning can be very easy given the correct manner in which taught.

I would be willing to listen to pupils and parents and engage in where they feel they need to improve as well as teaching the curriculum required to have a good understanding and knowledge of the subject in hand.

I would make the learning of the subject interesting but also with a proffesional approach allowing the pupil to deliver and fulfil there maximum potential.

Personal Description:
I am an inspiring, self-motivate and dynamic professional with a vast teaching experience at primary level of education. I have a strong awareness and passion for pupils' learning and development. I enjoy being part of and encourage inclusive education to promote positive learning techniques. I possess exemplary planning skills and accustomed to operate efficiently under pressure, remaining calm and prioritising work load. I am confident individual with a 'can-do' attitude, efficient transferable skills, creative and open minded to finding ways to achieve exceptional teaching standards, show a willingness to change approach, adapt to new ideas and suggestions, organised with the ability to multi-task and a good team player with ability to work independently.

Teaching Experience:

I was a primary and secondary school teacher in India.About 6 years of personal one to one tutoring with primary.
I have been doing private tuitions for various clients for the past 6 years so if you choose to study with me, you know that you will be in safe hands. Along with this, I have experience working with children as I have previously completed work experience in both a nursery and a primary school. I have an excellent rapport with all my students and their families and have never had any negative feedback. I have taught students from various background and of varying academic ability and I am able to adjust my teaching style to suit every student individually.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very patient and understanding nature and I believe that tutoring is about more than just providing students with answers. Its about equipping the students with sufficient knowledge and teaching them key skills which they can use to further their learning. I tailor each session according to the individual needs of the student. Through my experience, I know what teaching methods are most effective and I use these to make the student feel better prepared for challenging learning topics.


I believe that a strong student-tutor relationship is necessary in order to achieve the most successful results and I aim to do so by constantly maintaining good communication and understanding with my students. Unlike other tutors, I am always involved in the student's learning and every session consists of interactive and practical learning.

Personal Description:
I was born in Xi'an China, where the Terracotta Army were found also a birth place of Chinese history and culture. I graduated from a Chinese University with BA degree in English. I studied Chinese language and culture all the through my school life. I have worked as a tour guide, part-time teacher and a business man in China.

I moved to UK in 2001 and settled here with my family. In order to continue my enthusiasm for teaching Chinese in the UK, I have attended the prepare to teach course in a local collage to learn about the different theory and approach of teaching in the UK, which has helped me greatly.

I like history and culture and I love teaching people Chinese language and culture.

Teaching Experience:

Part time teaching in state school in China
Private tutoring since 2005 in the UK
the main teacher for our local Chinese community Chinese learning class which is held every Saturday in a local council library and it has been running for 3 years.
City and Guilds Certificate of Level 4 Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) from Stafford College.

My previous and ongoing clients include Crossbow Education Ltd, Aldi Superstore, Orangetek Ltd, plus many individuals from Burton on Trent, Wolverhampton, Stoke on Trent, Stafford and surrounding areas.

Tutoring Approach:

I understood that a native speaker of one language is not automatically a language tutor, especially when teaching someone with totally different language and culture background.
I understood that younger people and the wiser people would like different approaches of learning.
I understood different learners have different motivation and target of learning, either business or leisure.
I provide one to one teaching or in a group, I use self designed learning materials to make your learning more personal and fun.
Homework will be given each time, as commitment and disciplines are fundamentally important.

Personal Description:
I am a Politics and International Relations graduate from the University of Sheffield.

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential. I like to act as a mentor for tutees and encourage them to think about their future. I have vast knowledge of the university admissions process through my previous work experience and am willing to offer guidance with UCAS applications and university admissions in general.

I believe all students are able to achieve the best grades, it all comes down to their own motivation, hard work and of course teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have both informal and formal tutoring experience. I have tutored pupils up to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. My philosophy of teaching is based on allowing the students to develop their own thinking and use real life examples where possible. I do place emphasis on past papers and perfecting exam techniques as these are essential for the students to achieve the best grades possible.
