Personal Description:
I am currently in my second year of university studying theology and religious studies and enjoying every mintue of the learning experience. I specialise in Christianity mainily, although I can teach Christianity, Judaism, Islam, including Jewish ethics etc.

As I have come from a large family I am used to spending time with children of all ages, and have previously had a babysitting job for many different famalies.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously given tuition on English Literature to help with coursework, and to strengthen the pupils writing skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I would firstly do an introductory session with the pupil of the chosen subject, asking which subjects the student wants help with mainly. I like to have interactive sessions where the pupil can ask any questions that are on their mind.

Personal Description:
Professional electronics engineer with 30 years experience. Have wide experience using maths and science in the real world. Also very good writing and communication skills. Very understanding about how people learn and patient with people who have difficulty in some areas.

Teaching Experience:

Have done private tutoring for over five years including with work colleagues and college students. I have also been involved with schools science clubs and have an enhanced CRB check in place.

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed, friendly, no pressure. Students are encouraged to get stuck in, have a go and not worry about making mistakes. Making mistakes is a very powerful learning tool and should not be regarded as an indicator of ability or non-achievement. Learning must be fun and self rewarding.

Personal Description:
I am a super-tutor, with a 1st Class Masters from Cambridge University. I am excellent with children and love to help others learn.

I went straight from university into drama school, and now work as a tutor and a professional actress. I have 4 years of tutoring experience and have helped children get into some of the best schools in the country, as well as aiding older children in getting the A*s they want at GCSE and A-level.

Teaching Experience:

My degree at Cambridge University was in Education studies with English and Drama. Although it was not a teacher training course, the Education Studies module of the degree involved learning an introduction to the philosophy, psychology, sociology and history of education. I was also, of course, able to benefit from the private seminar and tutorial system that Cambridge offers. As a result, I am fully aware of how beneficial a one-on-one teaching style can help to build confidence, and heighten learning and understanding.

I have now been tutoring ages 7-18 for 4 years, and have had brilliant feedback from my various jobs:

1. Lucy is an excellent enthusiastic tutor who does a great job keeping my son interested and engaged. I would highly recommend her. - Father of Zain (age 8)

2. I would really like to thank you for being such a great tutor. We appreciate the effort you put into preparing for the sessions with Ella and we have every confidence in your dedication and abilities. - Father of Ella (age 16)

3. Julian scored 97% UMS marks in English Language, which is within 2.1% of all the boys taking English this year. For English Literature his UMS score was 97% again, which is within 4% of all the boys this year! This brilliant result, we think, is largely thanks to your help. - Mother of Julian (age 16)

4. Our son absolutely loved Lucy. She worked so hard with him in the lead-up to his exams, and I don`t know what we would have done without her! - Mother of Christopher (age 11)

Tutoring Approach:

I am a confidence-buildling tutor.

My approach is generally fun. I am the tutor who is also the friend. I do not let a child get away with misbehaviour or laziness, but at the same time I am certainly not stern. My approach is without a doubt to help the child learn to love the subject and want improvement for themselves, not because I demand it of them.

Firstly, I will always aim to find the areas the child is having the most difficulty with and break it down to its simplest form to help them understand. Once a child has understood the basic principle of what we are learning, I aim to push them as far as I can with their learning - my memory of the best teacher's I had at school were the teacher's who pushed me even further than I needed to go, and who gave me more knowledge and information than I needed to know. I then found that I entered my exams relaxed and confident, knowing that I had excess knowledge. Rather than learning just to answer set questions in an exam, I felt I truly understood those subjects.



Of course, I would play everything by ear though, and I would not pile extra work or information on a child if they are still struggling. We will work at a pace that is comfortable but useful for them.

Personal Description:
I am a twenty-seven year-old graduate, currently studying for a PhD in History at Queen Mary University of London.

I am young, enthusiastic, and have excellent communication skills. I have lived in London for two years, and in my spare time I enjoy football, playing the guitar and reading about history.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my academic career I have engaged in mentoring and tutoring schemes. During my A levels I tutored a number of pupils through their History GCSEs, and at university I was a volunteer mentor for first year students, helping them to structure their studies and get through exams during a particularly challenging time.

As part of my PhD programme, I teach three seminars with first-year undergraduates on a weekly basis on a course about the Anglo-American "special relationship" in the twentieth century.

I have worked as a private tutor for six years. I have lots of experience in tutoring students at GCSE and A Level, and have worked with students with a range of capabilities.

My long-term goal is a career as a lecturer or teacher. I have enjoyed the process immensely whenever I have engaged with students, and want to broaden my experience as much as possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that my young age, and the fact I took my A levels and GCSEs relatively recently, gives me a strong advantage in tutoring. All the difficulties and emotions students encounter when taking these exams are fresh in my memory, and I am confident that with encouragement, patience and a friendly understanding, I can make a huge difference to students' prospects. My strong academic record is testament to my ability to approach exams efficiently and with enthusiasm, and my experience in tutoring has developed my skills in approaching a range of student issues, from last-minute revision to long-term guidance.

Personal Description:
Hello! I am Rossella, I am Italian and I moved to London 11 years ago. Italian is my mother-tongue but I am perfectly fluent in English. I have a Diploma in languages (Liceo Linguistico, Mantova, Italy) and a degree in Economics and Tourism (University of Bologna, Italy). Now I am a full-time mum of two boys who are growing up speaking both Italian and English.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor since moving to London, mainly one to one and also small groups (max 3 people).
I have been registered with UKtutors for 4 years now. Through UKtutors I have been teaching Italian to adults only, most of them beginners. I am very proud of what my students have achieved and are still achieving. Most of them only knew few words and are now able to hold a proper conversation in Italian. I have also been working with young people studying for their A-level and university students.

Tutoring Approach:

Since each student has their individual way of learning, I think it's important to discuss it at the very beginning in order to make sure that the tutoring is efficient and enjoyable. For example, there are some students that learn better by listening and repeating and others that need to write and read to learn the language; therefore each lesson is organised around the student's needs and learning skills. Both grammar and conversation are essential to learn and improve the language.
I also offer lessons purely based on travel, focusing on all aspects that tourists traveling to Italy are interested in, such as booking hotels and restaurants, asking for directions, being able to use public transports.

Subjects
  • Italian
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Teaching is part of my life, which I really enjoy!

My teaching career started in 1985 in São Paulo city, and after some years I received a new challenge in a beautiful coastal location. Two schools invited me to teach and I accepted.

Teaching Experience:

Then I had opportunity to improve my career, teaching different subjects like ICT, Statistic, Accounts and Portuguese. Also I helped other teachers to develop ways to improve their classes using modern technology, bringing a new face to the lessons.

A further challenge arrived in my life in 2011 and made me move once again and now I am living in the UK, and I wish to continue my teaching to help you to learn Brazilian or European Portuguese.

No matter what your goals are, travel, business, educational proposal or simply to learn a language, we can work together to achieve them. I have my own material for all levels, ages and needs.

Tutoring Approach:

In a very dynamic class, we talk about music, art, nature, hints & tips that I believe help to build your confident. In a balanced mix of conversation, grammar, exercise, video and books, you will achieve your target in Portuguese Language.

Tuition can be Face2Face or online via Skype, Google Hangout

Personal Description:
A computer science graduate and former software engineer that got out of the 'rat-race' in 2001 to develop my then hobby teaching martial arts into a professional career. I now run a very successful Academy teaching martial arts, self protection, and personal development to students of all ages.

Having established the school I had the time to develop my photography to the point when in 2011 I gained a distinction from the Royal Photographic Society, and now I also spend some of my time as a professional photographer too, focussing mainly on teaching others, both individuals and group workshops.

Teaching Experience:

General:
In my former career as a software developer I was also responsible for writing technical documentation and running training courses worldwide. I'm very comfortable with planning, organising and delivering courses up to a very high standard.

Photography:
As a photographer I have been teaching now for about 5 years, I run workshops for all levels, and also individual one-to-one training tailored to students from complete novices up to those approaching Royal Society standard.

Martial Arts:
I'm a high-ranking martial arts instructor (6th degree black belt with 30 years experience) and have been teaching now for well over 20 years, with students of all ages from 5 up to those in their 60's. Alongside my own school I teach courses and seminars to groups of all sizes. I've taught in schools, worked with police and youth groups etc. I often teach private lessons to individuals, both from my own school and those with no prior experience.

Life Coaching:
Having successfully escaped the rat-race to pursue my own goals it's fair to say I've learned a lot about personal development. I've also completed a number of courses and seminars with world-class coaches such as Anthony Robbins. I now share this experience with a number of private clients for personal development and life coaching to help them with motivation, goals and productivity in their own careers.

I have a current DBS (CRB) check and can provide references relating to all aspects of my coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly, informal and always tailored to the specific needs of the individual.

Happy to chat about your individual requirements prior to booking so please get in touch with any questions :-)

If you're looking for photography, business or personal development coaching I'm happy to chat on the phone, skype or obviously to meet in person (I do charge travelling if you're not coming to me).

Self defence coaching obviously needs to be in person, and there are with minimum training requirements to ensure we can cover enough basic skills.

Personal Description:
I am 59 years old and retired from full time teaching in August 2014 after a teaching career of some 23 years. From September 2014 I have taught on a part time basis at Oldham Sixth Forn College. I am married with 3 children and live in the Chorley area. I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 1979 with a degree in Construction Management and spent the first 12 years of my working life in the construction industry. I began teaching at Stockport College in 1991 and gained a P.G.C.E. in Secondary Maths shortly afterwards, I started at Oldham Sixth Form College in May 2003.

Teaching Experience:

I taught at Stockport College for 11 years and have just retired from Oldham Sixth Form College after almost 13 years there. I have taught a broad range of maths courses during that time and was course leader for level 2 maths at O.S.F.C. for 8 years before my semi-retirement. I have taught G.C.S.E maths for many years and have considerable experience teaching C1, C2 C3, C4 S1, S2 and D1 as part of A' level mathematics. I am familiar with both the Edexcel and AQA Gcse and A level specifications.
I have been an examiner for AQA at G.C.S.E. and am currently an examiner for The Cambridge Board marking the IGCSE and also for Edexcel marking C1 and C3, I have therefore lots of exam board experience and have many tips for maximising marks to pass on.
For students starting A level maths I have lots of bridging resources to enable students to make a seamless transition to advanced level study.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on my friendly and personable approach to tutoring endeavouring to remove the impression that maths is too hard that has grown up in the media in recent times. References are available from my past and current students.

Personal Description:
Hi my name's Connor,

I am a 3rd year student at King's College London, currently studying medicine. I am also the medical representative for my year and achieved academic achievements for my medical studies in my first two years of study.
In recent years I completed my own AS Levels & A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics & Economics at The Campion School.

Particular expertise in AQA A Level Biology

I can also offer help in areas, such as:
Applying to medical School (UCAS),
Medical School Interviews (MMI's & Panel),
UKCAT (Medical School Admissions Test),
Science Based EPQ's,

Teaching Experience:

In recent years I have tutored both A Level and GCSE students in the Sciences and Economics. This, alongside having recently completed these examinations myself, has given me a thorough working knowledge of the curriculum and how to score maximum marks on exam papers.

Work experience in primary schools and as an ambassador for King's College London have also provided me with a great wealth of experience with those of younger years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the key to success in school is building confidence in your given subject. I can work with you to build on existing skills or develop the basics needed to achieve. No matter what level you are currently at, you can always improve and aim higher. With understanding, patience and hard work you will succeed.

I allow the student to lead the sessions in the direction they feel they need to focus on, with a combination of revision materials, text book focus and multiple past papers.

Personal Description:
I am a 32 year old native German, moved to Northumberland in 2012 to live here with my family and our little dachshund. After my A-Level (including German and English) I have made an apprenticeship as a Travel Agent, as travelling is one of my passions. The last 4 years before moving here I have been working as a Sales and Marketing Manager in the music industry, as music is another passion of mine. So when I moved here, I started giving guitar lessons and German lessons and I really enjoy both. I love to teach my language to people and have experience in teaching both children and adults.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching private students one-to-one, beginning from 6 years up to 60 years old. Some of them are beginners, others prepare for their GCSE or A-Level. I have been assisting in schools from nursery to A-Level and know the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are tailored to your needs and full of fun. I am very patient and encouraging as I know how hard the German language can appear. Everybody learns in a different way and I am very flexible to adjust to yours to support your progress and make you a confident German speaker. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or if you are already learning German, I want to help you improving your skills easily.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of the University of London (SOAS) with a degree in Korean Language and History. I am 42 years old and married with one daughter.

Teaching Experience:

I enjoy teaching and I have four years experience tutoring English and Maths at primary level as well as three years teaching in a classroom. My daughter has recently passed her 11+ so I am familiar with the requirements to pass these exams, as well as the stress parents feel in the build up to the exams. I have a good knowledge of the local schools and application procedures.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different but I like to work from set books suitable for the child's level in order to closely monitor progress. I focus on the skills and knowledge necessary to pass the 11 plus and year 6 SATS.

Personal Description:
Hola!

I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia. I have also lived in Barcelona (Spain) for 23 years. I completed a degree in Digital Marketing and Business Management at the University of Medellin, Colombia. I achieved a First.
I moved to England in February, 2010 as I really wanted to improve my English.

I am friendly and hardworking. My personal interests are: salsa, yoga, sports, travelling, nature, meeting new people and listening to music.

Teaching Experience:

In Spain I worked as a private tutor for 12 years. I am familiar with the syllabus at GCSE and A level.

I offer support in all relevant skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. I can support students in improving their intonation and pronunciation in order to reach high standards of accuracy. Alternatively, I can work on improving your knowledge and application of Spanish, as I offer advice on how to use key words and structures (e.g. verb tenses, adverbs, etc.).

Tutoring Approach:

I use a range of resources to support students (worksheets, videos, CDs) together with a variety of methods (from traditional writing and reading exercises to games and role plays). I can adapt my teaching to suit your learning style and priorities (e.g. improving writing skills to prepare coursework).

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Hasta pronto,

Walter

Personal Description:
A dynamic, motivated and highly personable senior Solicitor, with a wealth of civil litigation, employment, contract and consumer law experience honed during a progressive 20 year career.
Uniquely adept at operating as a strategic thinker, creative problem solver and mentor of people, with a proven track record of success, cultivated from developing relationships of trust and transparency with both private clients, businesses and external companies.
A highly versatile individual, able to adapt quickly, integrate and collaborate effectively, and communicate with many different audiences face to face, online, by email and telephone.

Teaching Experience:

I am new to private tutoring but have a vast amount of experience of assisting individuals and businesses. I have been called upon on many occasions to provide training sessions to small and large groups, to appear on national television, and local and national radio.
The law is a fascinating area to study, and I have a passion for it - which I am aware from feedback, comes across in my training sessions.
I can provide tutoring from my home, online (email and skype) or at a student's home.

Tutoring Approach:

To see the wider picture of the law so that a full understanding can be gained. To make learning the law as much fun and as interesting as possible.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, compassionate and experienced tutor who delivers the best quality of one-to-one tuition in Maths.
I have recently graduated with a 1st Class Master's degree from the University of Sussex. I also have other interests such as Taekwon-do which I regularly do on a weekly basis.

My enthusiasm motivates students and gives them self-confidence to view me not only as their tutor, but as a role model, a friend and ultimately someone who will take a genuine interest in their learning and achievement.

Parents are very important in the support structure and therefore I include and work with all parties to ensure the best possible system for learning is in place. I create a tailored programme, in which a lesson plan can be followed and progress is monitored, to allow parents to be a part of the tuition process. I do this with care whilst listening and catering to the student's individual needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Maths tutor for about 3 years, tutoring many Primary, GCSE and A-Level students in this period.

A few of these have been from word-of-mouth, hence the reason for very little reviews. Each year brings fantastic results and I am yet to have a student dissatisfied with their successes.

I have 100% pass rate and one of my best successes in tutoring was a student that had improved by 3 GCSE grades. Most of my students after a year of tuition have increased by 2 grades.

I hold a full clean enhanced DBS check.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning happens when you are faced a problem and have to struggle to find an answer, so I help students to work out problems by providing them hints and guide them in the right direction by leading them through key concepts. I also break down questions which can be chunky into key bullet points for them to understand quickly and effectively.

My explanations are very clear and also have a calm personality. As well as subject content, I develop a student's skill in exam technique and time management in order for the student to perform well overall particularly in exams.

I can offer 2-hour block sessions at the weekend (if required) and 1-hour block session during the weekdays. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, unless in medical circumstances, and a one-month discontinuation policy either side if tuition is terminated.
