Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, energetic teacher with eight years experience teaching and tutoring A-level with a passion for my subject. In my spare time I watch and play football, enjoy reading, hiking and watching films; on the odd occasion I like to go skiing or scuba diving.

I studied A-levels before deciding to go to Durham University to study Chemistry. Once I finished my degree, I trained as a teacher at Manchester University and worked in Manchester for three years before moving down to London four years ago. I have been teaching A-level Chemistry for eight years in total and have experience tutoring every exam board including the IB. I am also an OCR Examiner and Reviewer for AS Chemistry Exam Breadth in Chemistry.

In the Summer 2014 exams, I successfully guided the Chemistry department to their first 100% pass rate and a headline figure of 83% A-C in AS Chemistry.
In the Summer 2015 exams, the A-level Chemistry results at Sacred Heart were one of the best with 93% A*-C (64% A*-B).
In the Summer 2016, A-level Chemistry achieved 80% A*-C (65% A*-B) grades.

I left teaching this year to go back to university to study Medicine which starts in September 2016, however I am still looking to tutor students who require support and advice in Chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

First Post: Crompton House School (OCR): September 2009 - August 2011(Teacher of GCSE and A-level Chemistry)

Second Post: Bolton School (AQA): September 2011 - August 2012 (Teacher of GCSE and A-level Chemistry)

Third Post: Sacred Heart Catholic School (OCR): September 2012 - August 2016 (Lead Teacher of Chemistry)

OCR Specialist Examiner for F321 and Breadth in Chemistry: September 2013 - present

Currently a Medical Student at Manchester University.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very calm, patient and relaxed person and this is reflected in my tutoring. Many students can have difficulty with Science (in particular Chemistry) and with a one on one approach can be more motivating than in a classroom environment. I have an excellent knowledge of Science and can communicate this effectively. I will take you as far as you need to go in the subject and will be efficient with your time. Past successes include two students whom increased a grade from a B to A to get onto a Medicine course and also recently a student whom achieved a C at AS level and came out with an A for his full A-level.

I normally tutor by focusing on key concepts and ideas, using past paper questions to highlight what the exam requirements are and help students learn to apply their knowledge. I can also tutor in a less formal way where students can bring particular questions or topics and we can discuss them and look at application and exam style questions.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

Personal Description:
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I'm Chris, a Secondary English teacher based in Liverpool with experience of one-to-one tutoring. My main area of expertise is in English at KS3, GCSE and A-Level. I can help in the following areas:

- Basic literacy skills (reading and writing)
- Homework
- Exam preparation
- Revision skills
- Coursework/Controlled Assessment preparation

I can provide proof of ID, teaching qualifications, CRB and references as required.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years' experience in education ( one as a teaching assistant, one as a PGCE student and six as a teacher) of teaching English in both mixed and all-boys secondary schools in the Liverpool area. I currently work in a very academic, highly regarded school and teach the AQA specifications at A Level (Literature, spec A) and GCSE. I have tutored both boys and girls of varied ages and abilities during this time.

I have been an examiner for AQA for five years marking the English Language GCSE paper.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a personalised approach to tutoring that is tailored to an individual's needs to ensure that they are suitably challenged and make progress. I feel that it is important to develop a positive rapport between teacher and student, so that they feel confident and encouraged to learn. I would consider myself to be patient, friendly, and adaptable.

I am happy to meet in person, either at your home or at an agreed upon venue (such as a public library) - whichever is convenient for you.

My hourly rate includes expenses for travel and all resources. I will also mark any written work/homework I set your child after each session and free of charge.

Please include details about your child's studies (texts studying, current topic in English at school, exam board, specific areas of weakness/development) as this will enable me to assess whether I am suitable or not to meet his or her needs much more quickly than via several emails.

Personal Description:
Hola, I am a University Educated Native Spanish Speaker residing permanently in the UK. I am a professional translator with years of experience in translating documents from English into Spanish.
I find it very rewarding and I enjoy helping others to learn a new language or improve their knowledge and skills they have already got.

Teaching Experience:

Before coming to England I worked as an English Teacher at a Secondary School in Cuba, my native country for 1 year and taught the Spanish Language to English speaking adults who visited the country as tourists. Since I started tutoring in England I have been teaching the language to adults and children which have given me more practical experience and ideas for using new and different ways to teach according to their personal skills and aims. I have good rapport with my students and I encourage them to review at home what they have already learned in my lessons for them to be able to reach their goals quicker and move a step forward. I also use a good and useful activity book which helps the students to do practical exercises during the lessons and for homework if they wish.

Tutoring Approach:

I design my lessons specifically for you, working at your speed and focusing on what you prefer the most, speaking, pronunciation, reading, listening, writing, vocabulary, grammar, conversation or other. I will develop a learning plan to suit each person's needs, goals and abilities. I enjoy teaching people of all ages and levels, beginners or more advanced.

Personal Description:
I am a 29 year old male working towards a Ph.D. in Mechanical engineering. I am lively and friendly and I enjoy learning as well as teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring a range of students including National 5, Intermediate 2, Higher, Advanced Higher Physics & Mathematics and University level mathematics. This provides me a broad perspective on the school curriculum and allows me to relate between the different levels and help students fill in any gaps in their knowledge base as well as progress into more advanced topics as their skills develop.

Additionally I have been a Mathematics tutor at the University of Glasgow for three years while doing my Ph.D. During this time I have taught a large number of students with varying levels of ability and helped them get to the standard required for their university career. I have also worked as a private tutor at University level, teaching thermodynamics and fluid/thermal courses.

I have further experience teaching computer programming to second year students and I have worked in Spain teaching English to young children. I like to tailor my teaching approach to the pupils learning style and I am extremely patient and understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that many students learn in different ways and I try to adapt my style of teaching to the students needs. I am patient and I recognise that mathematics can be a difficult concept to grasp and is something which takes practice. I am friendly and approachable and I try to developed a relaxed and comfortable learning environment. Lastly I really enjoy mathematics and teaching and I think this transfer to the students!

Personal Description:
After school and university (where I read English literature & philosophy) I worked for a television production company as a researcher, before applying to drama school.

Like many tutors, I am an actor and tutoring is one of the various jobs I do to supplement my acting career, and the one that I find most rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

As well as English, I also tutor elocution & accents, give guitar lessons, and I do one-to-one role-play tuition for medical students preparing for their clinical exams.

Besides individual lessons, I have run public speaking workshops and taught classes for Italian teenagers learning English.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to get straight to the specific needs of each pupil and adapt my lessons as closely as possible to that individual student. I also attempt to cut through the jargon of assessment objectives, technical terms and exam rubric and explain in plain language what is required and ensure that my pupils understand.

Studying English & philosophy taught me to think critically and express myself clearly, which is essential when assessing a pupil's ability and helping them to grasp ideas. I find that my training as an actor, with a concentration on listening and responding has allowed me to be very adaptable and aware of what a pupil needs.

Personal Description:
My name is Stevan and I am a Maths tutor based in London. I am currently studying for a masters in Mathematics at Imperial College London, having completed my undergraduate degree at the London School of Economics.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor since 2009 and am comfortable working with all calibres of pupils. I specialise in one-to-one help, tailoring my lessons for each individual student of mine.

Tutoring Approach:

It is completely up to the student's requirement. If help with schoolwork is required, I shall aid them appropriately, making sure they have a thorough understanding of all the concepts they use. On the other hand, I can also teach the syllabus alongside their school - I have a style which allows students to grasp the concepts with more ease than they may be able to at their school. Regular homework will be set.

View Charles's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I'm a young, enthusiastic teacher with an excellent success rate, both as Head of Psychology at a top grammar school and as a private tutor. I do my best to make tutoring easy to relate to, and try to use humour and realistic examples to make the subject more relevant. I focus heavily on exam tips and practice, using my seven years of experience as a top AQA examiner to help get the important details across to students. I am keen to listen to my students, and provide them with whatever they feel would benefit them in order to succeed.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Psychology at A Level (AQA) for seven years, and have been head of department for the last six of those. In that time I have taken my department from 21st out of 24 subjects to 4th best in the school - with no other teachers to work with, and no GCSEs to provide a basis for learning.
I used to teach AQA Sociology at GSCE for two year, and while I have not taught it in schools for a few years, I am an AQA senior examiner in the subject, meaning I standardise and mark thousands of papers every year, and have been deemed expert enough over the past five of the six years I've done it to work on re-marks and guide other examiners as their team leader.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on whatever the student wants - be it going over lesson work, or learning whole topics from scratch. I prefer to engage with the students rather than talk at them, and find tutoring is most effective with lots of questioning and checking of knowledge. I provide notes and revision tools where needed, am happy to set and mark 'homework', and like to focus heavily on exam skills - not just how to answer exam questions, but what examiners will be looking for, and how to word your answers to maximise your chances of top marks!

Personal Description:
I am an experienced Modern Foreign Language tutor based in Cardiff. I can teach Mandarin and Spanish languages to people of all ages and levels.
I have an Master degree in Intercultural Communication from Birkbeck, University of London and a Bachelor degree in Spanish language from University of Havana, Cuba.
The place that I use to teach is near Cardiff City Centre, it is a quiet and comfortable location. However, I can also travel to you if your residence is not too far from me.
I am passionate in teaching and always can combine my lessons with real life. I strongly believe that students can learn in a very fun environment with me.

Teaching Experience:

Mandarin:
- I am a native Chinese speaker. I did 1 year internship at Confucius Institute of University of Havana where I taught Mandarin to Cuban students of all ages and levels. (2011-2012)
- I have been teaching Mandarin as a private tutor in the UK for more than 3 years to students of diverse nationalities. (2012-present)
- I have experience as interpreter (Chinese-English) at the Beijing Overseas Study Service Association (BOSSA) fair, held November 2013 at Regent's University, London.

Spanish:
- I did my Foundation course (1 year) and BA in Spanish language (4 years) at University of Havana, Cuba, and also taught this language to adult students who went to Cuba for visit and study.

Tutoring Approach:

- The first lesson is FREE. We can discuss your learning purpose and interests. It is also an opportunity for me to learn your language level.

- As a foreign language student before, I know some common errors that a language learner can make. Therefore, I have designed my own teaching materials to help my students to learn more efficiently. In addition, I can adapt my lessons to students' needs.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, professional, patient and successful private tutor. I have a BA in History (1st Class) and a Masters in Medieval Studies (Distinction); a course jointly run by the History and English departments at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Aside from Higher Education I have 10 GCSE's A-C (including English Language (A), English Literature (A), History (B), Latin, Science and Maths). I obtained 4 A Levels in English Language, History, Psychology and General Studies as well as an AS Level in Law.

Teaching Experience:

I have a strong amount of teaching and tutoring experience - across a range of levels in both English and History:

- KS2 English
- KS3 English
- ALAN
- GCSE English Language and Literature
- As/A Level English Language, Literature and History
- Higher Education History and Academic Writing

Fortunately these have been very successful, and I have been consistently able to improve client results. Over time I have seen that the areas I am able to impact most are essay writing and exam techniques.

I also work full-time in the recruitment field and, as a result, have been able to offer help with University Personal Statements, College Applications and CV and Interview techniques, should this be required.

Previous feedback:

From Michelle (5/5): (GCSE English) "Fantastic Teacher, she is everything you could ask of an English tutor. We are so glad we found her."

From Vivien (5/5): (A-Level History) "My daughter is receiving excellent help and guidance from Rachel with both English and History AS work."

From Samantha (5/5): (GCSE English) "First Tutors helped us to find Rachel , she has helped our daughter with her English and given her alot more confidence. Rachel is very easy to talk to and get along with putting students at easy. I can't thank Rachel enough, for her help and support."

From Lynn (5/5): (A-Level History) "Rachel has been an excellent tutor for my daughter Harriet and has helped her to gain confidence and understanding in her English and History A Level course. We have been very pleased with the attention to detail and enthusiasm that Rachel gives to the subject in a relaxed and personable manner. I would highly recommend Rachel as a Tutor."

From Adam (5/5): (GCSE English) "We cant recommend Rachel strongly enough. When we first sought her help, our son was coasting through school, under-performing in English and showing no interest in changing it. With her help just once a week, he is now up to a B average - an of course this has a positive effect on so many other subjects where good English skills are required (history, RE etc). If only she covered the maths & sciences too!"

From Libby (5/5): (GCSE English) "Rachel is a very good tutor, working with my son at his speed. She has given him ideas to look at and explore in his English GCSE. I am hopeful that through her help Sam will do well this year. Sam engages with her too which is really important."

From Carol (5/5): (Secondary English) "David felt very relaxed and comfortable during his lessons with Rachel. She had put a lot of thought into them and fully addressed the problems he is having at school. After 6 lessons he already feels more confident in presenting his work in the way it is required by the school. He left each lesson feeling very positive. He will be continuing his lessons with Rachel."

From Clare (5/5): (Secondary English) "We have been extremely pleased with Rachel's tutoring. Rachel has understood Bronti's needs and taught her the correct level of English. Rachel makes the lessons interesting, whilst also challenging in a way that isn't obvious to Bronti."

From Sue (5/5): (A-Level English) "Dear Rachel, Thank you very much for all the help you have given Alex so far with her AS studies, in particular English and essay writing. She is becoming much more confident and positive about approaching homework tasks and felt she coped well with her first exam today due to the preparation sessions with you over the Xmas holidays. Compared to when she started I would say she is much happier now about her English studies, which is great. I am delighted with the change in her motivation and she is very keen to continue working with you on improving her essay writing techniques. Once again many thanks"

Tutoring Approach:

I practice what I preach - and I believe that this comes across in my tutoring. I absolutely love learning and studying. I am an enthusiastic person who genuinely wants to help people achieve their potential in their desired field and take great pride in the successes my clients have achieved after sessions with me.

Sessions are relaxed and informal; I create a friendly environment where people want to learn and feel comfortable doing so. I try to be as flexible as possible; I am happy to ramp up the sessions in the run up to exams, but also to scale back during quieter periods and also change days/times on an ad hoc basis. I encourage my tutees to contact me outside of sessions if they ever need any help - you don't have to wait a whole week to speak to me again!

There is, however, a formal element to learning and I do expect commitment and homework will be set on a regular basis (as long as there is capacity alongside school/college/university commitments).

It's not a case of 'one size fits all' and I enjoy working with my clients to help them to understand their best style of learning and to adapt my teaching style as required. Sessions with me can often mean going through past papers and helping with homework to fun quizzes and games!

On the whole, my aim would be not only to teach, but to inspire my tutees and instill a sense of confidence in their own abilities.

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!
