Personal Description:
I am an experienced, friendly and approachable lady working on a freelance basis and am still involved with High School teaching in the Leeds area. I worked in industry before deciding to fulfil my ambition to become a teacher.


My experience as a private tutor has been extremely rewarding over the years and I have seen every one of my students go from strength to strength, and am proud to say that they have all enjoyed the one to one experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have twenty years' experience of teaching English in High Schools -class teaching and one to one tuition. My expertise also incorporates teaching English as a second language having gained a Trinity qualification in Barcelona.
Over the years I have had considerable success with a variety of students, improving achievement levels and GCSE grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly person who tries to make learning fun. I understand the frustrations of young people who are demotivated and struggling to make sense of the English curriculum. My view is that there has to be a two way process and I will encourage the student to develop independent learning skills.

Practising a holistic approach allows young people to achieve their full potential through an appropriate tailor-made study plan. This will support their individual needs and requirements for personal and educational development.

I am happy to teach students in my home or the student's-depending on distance. Travel expenses would be charged if not in my local area-LS17 (North Leeds).

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am currently undertaking a funded History PhD at King's College London.

I hold a Masters in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies for which I was awarded a distinction and full funding as well as a BA Hons (First Class) in history and politics from the University of York. Given this, and my A Level subjects, I can offer private tuition in history, politics, geography and law, in preparation for GCSE, AS and A level exams. I am an organised, committed, reliable and enthusiastic individual who enjoys working with children and young adults, helping them to develop their understanding and interest in a variety of subjects.

I have tutored for a number of years, and have helped those I tutor to significantly improve their exam results and grades, often taking them from C and D level grades up to high As and Bs. My most recent tutee, who I tutored in GCSE Geography and History, acheived an A* in both subjects and came top of his year at school for his GCSE grades.

I am also happy to offer any help I can with university applications.

In the lead up to the exam period I can provide intensive revision sessions and/ or revision guides for any of the subjects listed below.

References can be provided upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored since 2007, and have helped those I tutor to significantly improve their exam results and grades, often taking them from C and D level grades up to high As and Bs.

For several years I have undertaken a variety of volunteer projects, working within schools/ educational environments and with children :- this has included working at the University of York, Barley Hall (York), Westminster Palace and the Tower of London. Whilst working in these environments, I conducted a range of independent historical research projects. I then planned educational sessions based on these materials, which I then delivered to school children of various ages and abilities. It was necessary to ensure that the material collected was not only historically accurate but also easy to understand and enjoyable to learn about, helping the children to develop an interest in different periods of history.

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst tutoring I would pay particular attention to the needs of each student, and tailor their study courses to best meet their needs and wishes. My approach to tutoring emphasises clarity, flexibility, and an enthusiasm for learning, within an informal and relaxed yet structured and interactive environment. I would encourage students to think imaginatively and challenge themselves academically, encouraging debate and broadening their horizons. This would not only help to improve a child's examination technique but also their academic development.

In the lead up to the exam period I can provide intensive revision sessions and/ or revision guides for any of the subjects listed below.

Professional tuition that works.
Many children need extra help to achieve their full potential in English,not all children find learning to read easy.Other get frustrated because they cant spell.Maths problems can occur at any time.Some children seem to have difficulty by Year 2,whilst others don't seem to have problems until Years 7and 8 when percentages or algebra are introduced.Many maths problems occur through not grasping the basics.

Personal Description:
I am a mature lady (50yo) with a 1st Class Electrical/Electronic Engineering Degree (B.Sc) from Birmingham University and a Postgraduate Management qualification from Cambridge University.

My own 'A' Levels were Biology, Maths and Physics with a particular focus on electronics. At University I studied Maths at degree level.

I am also trained in other areas such as photo-reading (speed reading), hypnotherapy and craniosacral therapy. I have worked with young people utilising various modalities to help them gain confidence and choose careers/subjects that bring out the best in them. I studied for a time in a Rudolph Steiner environment so I appreciate the value of alternative approaches to educating young people. I was also a member of the Academy Appeals panel for some time in Hereford (for the Steiner Academy there).

From 2009 to 2012 I worked in an Admin capacity for OFSTED travelling around Schools and Colleges up and down the SW of England. My particular area of responsibility was the safeguarding and protection of children.

In 2011 I attended an Introduction to Autism training with the HANDLE organisation as I increasingly meet young people struggling on the Autism spectrum so this topic is of particular interest to me. I would be able to help refer any child who needed more specialised care. Related to this I have also been studying Human Design which is an invaluable tool for understanding how unique we all are.

I am friendly, empathic and good with younger people. I endeavour to help bring out the best in them on all levels.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully tutored Maths and Physics to High School students whilst living abroad in Canada and back here in the UK where I have been based more lately.

Tutoring Approach:

I work outside of my home in non-pet and non-smoker environments only at this time.
I ask the student to bring all relevant texts with them for the lesson.
If you also have past exam papers please also bring those.

I hold an enhanced CRB.

I have recently reduced my rates in recognition of the economic climate. I am negotiable to an extent in cases of hardship so please feel free to enquire.

Personal Description:
Highly motivated physics Tutor.
Teaching experience accumulated by preparing more than 40 students for A-Level exams.

Teaching Experience:

My name is Anton. I have master`s degree in Physics from University of New Hampshire. Besides my background as researcher I have four years of experience as a London based tutor. I primary teach A-level physics and most of my students were taking OCR, AQA, or Edexcel exams. I occasionally teach GCSE and University level subjects, such as Mechanics, Electrodynamics, and Quantum Mechanics. Currently I teach part-time in a private school.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is flexible. Usually I easy detect weak spots in students understanding and this gives me chance to focus on the most relevant topics for a particular student. I carefully prepare myself for each session, and my goal is to make the student involved in the lesson not just leaving him to listen to me. In my opinion the Math involved in A-Level physics is not hard at all, and many students that are good in Math think they can handle physics relatively easy, but this is most of the time not true. I apply extra effort, in my lessons to make sure that student understands the physics concepts not just memorizing facts. My observation is that if the student goal is to achieve an A grade it requires at least two hours of tutoring per week throughout the academic year, of course sometimes one hour is Okay, and some ambitious student ask for more than two hours per week. In any case it will give me great pleasure to help you improve your knowledge and make you feel the beauty of PHYSICS.

If you have any questions please let me know.
Good luck,
Anton

Personal Description:
I am a working actor and a recent Graduate of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Before going to drama school I went to The University of Nottingham where I achieved a first class degree in English Language and Literature. I am self-motivated, enthusiastic and passionate about Drama and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently worked as a Maths and English tutor with Explore learning. I taught Maths and English to children aged 4 - 14 of various abilities. I received training in the National Curriculum as well as current tutoring methods. I have a particular strength in preparing students for 11+ exams.

In Bristol I assisted on and led various Drama workshops including; introduction to Shakespeare, confidence building and audition technique.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and enthusiastic with a proven record of working well with children. I believe that every child can benefit from one-on-one tuition; whether they need extra help with a subject they are struggling with or they would relish the challenge of extension work. Private tuition can give them the extra time they need to let difficult ideas settle and to encourage them to ask questions and push themselves further. Above all I will try to make every session fun, relaxed and positive. This is not 'school' but a opportunity to bring their learning to life.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during lessons, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. Reading can be done in either setting, however it is important that both the tutor and learner participate in the process. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Kevin, a friendly and approachable full time Maths tutor with a patient and empathetic attitude.

I studied Maths at Uni after gaining 11 A grades at GCSE and 4 A grades at A level (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry) and since then I`ve worked as both an Accountant and an Actuary.

I`m an intelligent guy with the ability to break things down to their simplest forms, but am also patient and a good listener with the ability to understand the way someone else thinks about a problem. I think its these qualities that combine to make me a natural tutor and time after time I`ve experienced that when people have a problem understanding something, its been me they`ve come to.

One of my recent reviews:

"My son was struggling with his AS level maths course having failed to keep up with the pace of new topics
in the Autumn term of 2012. Relatively late in the day before the exams in May 2013 we were fortunate
enough to get Kevin to help him and there was a complete transformation of his confidence and approach
to maths. Before Kevin's intervention my son had achieved U, D and E grades in various mock exams but
in test papers before the actual exams he was getting results right at the top of the grade spectrum. I cannot
recommend Kevin too highly for his technical expertise in the subject or for his organised and sympathetic
teaching approach which was essential in my son's case. Kevin brought my son order and confidence out of
confusion and despair"

Teaching Experience:

I`m experienced and happy to tutor at any level KS3, GCSE, AS and A-level, QTS Numeracy exam (in fact, adult learners in any field needing a maths/numeracy refresher).

I also tutor for business school and foundation year maths exams eg GMAT, NCUK IFY etc. (Please ask for rates for these exams).

Tutoring Approach:

Let me know what your aim is - whether it be to understand that topic/module you 'just cant get!', or to go through past papers, or to learn a whole course from start to finish, and between us we can agree the best approach for you, and prepare a plan of action to ensure you achieve your goals.

Personal Description:
I am patient person. I have a gentle manner to get to know your child and to get the best learning experience for him/her.
While I am gentle in manner I will not take unruly behaviour.

Teaching Experience:

I am teacher who has taken early retirement. I have 15 years experience of teaching at infant level and further education level.
I taught reception classes for two years followed by year one for two years in Leicester.
I have also taught students with learning difficulties independant living skills for 9 years.
I have been working in schools in and around the Pontypridd untill I left 18 months ago to live in Glasgow.
Whilst in Glasgow I taught one 5 year old boy for a period of about 8 weeks over the smmer holiday. I also taught two 10 year old boys who needed their confidence boosting.
I am now back in Pontypridd and available to tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring should be fun for both the child and the tutor. I would look to use games as much as possible to enrich the time with your child. Initially I would need to talk to you as the parent to see what problems you and possibly the class teacher believe your child has, and how best they can be helped. I would need to review the situation as time went on to see what I have gathered.

Personal Description:
I am an Undergraduate studying Medicine at Imperial College London.

I am extremely passionate in the Sciences and Mathematics (ever since I was a child, as weird as that sounds.) and I've always enjoyed helping my peers and juniors improve and excel in these subjects.

I have 7 As on my A Level Diploma. Throughout Junior College, my passion made studying interesting and I managed to obtain Straight As in Bio, Chem and Maths for a total of 6 in-school exams, and was consistently in the top 5% for each subject.
Also, I got Distinction for my extra credit- H3 Advanced Organic Chemistry.

I'm a Chinese from Singapore, but I speak English fluently since English is my first language and will have no trouble holding classes in English!
Also, I have a very cheerful, quirky disposition and I try my best to be friendly with everyone that I meet!

Teaching Experience:

I have almost 4 years of teaching experience with A Level Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics in my home country, Singapore.
Of formal private one-on-one tutoring, I tutored a Junior College 1 student in H2 Chemistry and Mathematics for 1 year. After coming to the UK, i have had 2 more tutees whom i taught H2 Chemistry and H2 Mathematics.
I've also been involved in tutoring my peers and juniors in A Level Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology throughout my Junior College years.

Tutoring Approach:

Most importantly, I try to identify the weak points my students have, and try to focus most of my efforts to target their weaker areas. I want to ensure that my students are confident in all areas of the subject and that they get sufficient practice in all topics.
Also, I consistently watch out for any fundamental errors in understanding which may be impeding my student's progress and interest in the subject.

During the lesson, I ensure that I have sufficient material to give my students more practice and also, thoroughly explain or teach any concepts that my student may not have fully understood in school.
Most of all, I try my best to make tuition lessons fun and interesting so that my students will find studying enriching, rather than as a chore.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher by profession with BSc in Chemistry, Biology and English. I have been working at different educational establishments for more than 20 years. I consider myself as a positive, friendly, hard working and reflective teacher.
I am a native Russian speaker and I originate from the St. Petersburg region that is considered to be the cradle of the classical Russian language.
I have been a resident of the UK since 2006.

Teaching Experience:

Russian - all levels and all ages!
Chemistry - up to A-level.
Biology - GCSE.
I have more than 14 years of experience of private tuition of Russian to different nationalities.
I am a teacher of Chemistry and Biology with good practical skills as I have had an experience of working in a laboratory. I was teaching Chemistry and Biology in secondary schools for 9 years.
I am a teacher of English with experience of teaching the language in primary, secondary and high schools for 10 years.
On-line tutoring is also available.

Tutoring Approach:

All my lessons are individually planned bearing in mind the student's progress. I try to make every lesson interesting, useful and productive.
For Russian Language lessons I have plenty of up-to-date study resources (a variety of textbooks, workbooks and tests for adults; colourful books and dictionaries with pictures for young children; and study books/workbooks designed for schoolchildren according to their level and interests). I also have collected a lot of interesting books for an enjoyable home reading.
For Chemistry lessons I set up a target of the lesson and will work hard with a student to achieve it. I will use different learning styles that fit the students the best, identify and work on previous knowledge gaps in order to grow more knowledge and confidence in success through various engaging tasks including practical ones for better understanding of theoretical subject and its application.
I provide all my students with all the necessary materials.

Personal Description:
I studied Modern Languages (French and German) at Magdalen College, Oxford and went on to train as an actor at Central School of Speech and Drama. I can offer classes in beginners conversation for French and German as well as coaching for GCSE and A-level. In addition, I can help students create revision timetables to improve study skills and can offer drama tuition for drama school applicants or to improve confidence and general presentation skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for French, German and English with Home Tutors for the past 7 years and have had an excellent success rate with students achieving their desired grades at GCSE and A-level. I also co-wrote and ran the German Through Music and Drama course at Watford Grammar School for Year 10 Gifted and Talented students.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible and am reliable, punctual and well-organised. In the first lesson, I ask the tutees and parents exactly what they are hoping to gain from private tuition so that we can work together towards achieving those goals. It's also useful to get hold of a copy of the syllabus and/or class textbooks that the tutee is working from in school so that we can remain on target, tackle homework together and also add supplementary activities that reinforce their course work.

Personal Description:
I have been tutoring for over three years, with excellent results , while working in the maths department of a secondary school where I have been for 10 years.

I teach students of all ages and abilities, including those with SEN (special educational needs). In a classroom situation, on a one to one basis or as part of a small group.

I have extensive knowledge of the curriculum taught in years 7-11 and excellent resources, including past exam papers.

Teaching Experience:

I teach GCSE Maths to students who need extra help to reach their targets, this can be in a classroom situation or as part of a small group.
I also run intervention groups in tutor time and after school that offer extra help to GCSE students before their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I get a great deal of a satisfaction from working with students and helping them become more confident in a subject they quite often dislike because they find it difficult.
I have a very calm and patient manner as I want to build a good relationship with my students and for them to feel relaxed.
After assessing the student I set realistic goals for them so they feel they are achieving, each student is different and learns at a different rate, the important thing is for them to make the progress they are capable of.

Personal Description:
Hiya!

I'm a Law student who has been tutoring for more than a handful of years!
With vast knowledge in the subjects that I specialise in, I only think its best to give back to others.
I have achieved well in GCSE and A Level English, Maths and Politics; hence the chosen field.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a support officer in my local primary school, as well as my secondary school helping children in various subjects such as Maths and English.
I have been a personal tutor as well as doing private tutoring from 2009 onwards 2015

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to help my students have understanding and confidence, when answering exam questions as well as being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. I cover the topics required, and work particular on the weaknesses that my students identify. Regular practice in the subject also helps me identify where the student needs more help. My approach varies on the student's needs as well as their learning style. Overall, I want my students to perform very well, and its amazing to watch them flower!
Recently a student of mine went into his exam with extreme confidence, and texted me 'I have learnt so much since you have started tutoring me, I feel very confident in the exam I just sat. Thank you once again'.

Personal Description:
My name is Ian and I would be a female tutor. I was born in Malaysia and I have travelled to New Zealand and Australia for academic and research purposes. I have recently passed my PhD Viva and currently preparing for a major move to Orkney Islands. Even though English is not my first language, I have a great understanding in the subject of Organic Chemistry, I have ample tips for studying chemistry along side with basic knowledge in Math.

Teaching Experience:

I was a Campus Coach during my academic years in New Zealand. I would help 1st and 2nd year university students from our science department with their studies. This include giving them motivation to learn, tips for note-taking, managing time meeting all kind of assignments, giving advice on who they should approach for more academic and social help.

Recently, I was a lab demonstrator and Chemistry tutor during my academic year at University of Glasgow. I assisted students in the safe execution of the experiment, safe and proper operation and handling of lab equipment, chemicals and glassware. I was actively engaged with the students in discussions about the experiment. I also collected and grade pre-lab assignments in a timely manner, enter grades in record book, and circulate to give individual feedback to students. In addition, I was responsible for reporting any problems/incidents/inconsistencies immediately to the instructor and replenish/prepare any chemicals or supplies if asked upon with help from the technicians. I had the first-hand experience as a marker of assignments and lab reports, so I will know what to expect from a good to excellent answers to given questions.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique.

Feel free to drop me a line if you need help with your homework. If there is any single topic of Chemistry you need some clarification and understanding, don't delay!
