Personal Description:
I'm currently in the final stages of my PhD in cell and molecular biology, working on my thesis write up. I also teach on undergraduate biological science modules at the University, aiding students one to one in their laboratory practicals, providing feedback and marking coursework. I also have a BSc (1st, Hons) in Cell & Molecular Biology, having covered a range of modules including the following (all the a 1st Class standard); Advanced Topics in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology of Cancer, Laboratory Techniques for the Biosciences, Mammalian Biochemistry, Clinical Pharmacology, Plant Science, Genes & Genomes, Microbiology, Virology & Immunology.

I feel my experience of teaching students and the wide variety of science outreach projects I have worked on, make me an excellent private tutor for any undergraduate or A-level, or casual adult student wishing additional support with their studies.

I am also happy to discuss tutoring GCSE students, although I am not aware of the specifics of the content of the current syllabus.My CRB check (as carried out s part of STEM ambassador training) has expired. However if I receive multiple requests requiring one I am happy to reapply to update it.

Teaching Experience:

Specialist/Associate Lecturer, Undergraduate Practical Classes, Oxford Brookes University Oct 2010 - Current (Part time)

Teaching assistant for undergraduate laboratory and computer room based practical classes for a range of modules, in the Department of Biological and Bio-medical Sciences. Responsibilities include aiding students during a wide variety of practical classes with their experiments, calculations and written work. Role also includes marking and giving feedback on laboratory reports and records, assessment sheets and related coursework.

I have also worked on a wide range of science outreach projects. These include:

BBSRC British Bio-science Festival - Outreach event for the general public
Visions of the Future Interdisciplinary Event at the Pegasus Theatre
Oxford Brookes Science Bazaar - Family outreach event, volunteer 2011, 2012 & 2014
Fascination of Plants Day at Oxford Botanical Garden - General public outreach event
Science Oxford Science Cabaret - Family friendly outreach event

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working directly with others, preferably one on one, to help them develop their knowledge about a subject. This applies especially to biological sciences, which I'm passionate about. Combined with my range and depth of knowledge of the subject area, as well as understanding how university work is assessed and what constitutes good exam technique, I am confident to work with someone to help them achieve their full potential in the subject. I am also experienced at working with a range of learning styles and like to work with the student to see what best works for them with regards to getting the most from and improving their study. I am also a very sociable and friendly person who has a great love of science, which I think comes across in my teaching style, approaching the subject as something that can be both interesting and enjoyable to tackle learning.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Oxford University Maths undergraduate with versatile interests and a passion for teaching. In love with Mathematics and hoping to become a teacher one day, I relish every opportunity I get to share my knowledge with others.

I am interested in classical music (play the violin), baroque opera and theatre. I am also writing a blog and am currently the editor-in-chief of the Oxford University Maths Society Magazine, the "Invariant".

Teaching Experience:

Co-founder and co-owner of Quill Tuition tutoring company: conducted Maths and English classes for individuals and small groups; including a Maths course for high-school students heading to leading UK universities; experienced with teaching online using interactive online whiteboard and classroom facilities (2015).

Private English tutor for adults and teenagers (2014).

Taught a high-school Maths insight course to a class of 14-year olds (2013).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that successful tutoring consists of two things: the right approach, tailored to individual needs of every student and constant repetition and revision. If my student does not understand something, I try different ways of explaining it to them for as long as it takes for them to grasp the difficult concept in question. This way I can quickly find out what learning style fits the given student and how to teach them most effectively.

Personal Description:
I am a happy person because I love my job. I am really interested in teaching languages, using various approaches and methods as well as learning them, in particular self-learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a Language Centre for over ten years, teaching English and Russian languages at all levels. I am experienced in working with a wide range of programmes such as survival language, exam preparation, etc. and gave a great amount of individually tailored lessons as well.
I also designed and successfully taught a course on English-Russian Translation for students from British universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in order to be effective the learning process should be interesting and engaging, if possible even entertaining, but never tedious. So I try to bring in variety into my lessons and build language learning around the topics which appeal to my student.
I love working with technology and teaching in Skype using various Internet tools and resources. However, I prefer not to overwhelm my students with them and keep the focus on the language learning.

Personal Description:
Trained at the School of Design in Altos de Chavon (Affiliated to Parsons New School for Design, New York), my art has taken me all the way around the world from the Caribbean, South America to Hong Kong to Portugal, and now UK. My technique varies depending on projects and as I have a strong background in Design Programs such as Adobe Creative Suite, in Fine Arts/ Illustration mediums such as Oil paints, Acrylic, Pastels, etc. Performing Arts, and exhibition assistant, I like to keep an open mind always and that has lead my art to be very versatile.

I teach Spanish as well. Its a great language and fun to speak, and very easy to learn.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2+years as an Art teacher and have been a private tutor for a few months.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understand, confidence and enthusiasm for each project. 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 homework to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style, past paper questions, or drawing exams in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. Where appropriate I set and mark work, giving students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.

Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching and have tutored at various universities across Europe. My day job is at the Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, where our team of clinicians, physicists, mathematicians, biologists and bio-chemists together develop strategies to fight cancer. I particularly enjoyed interacting with people at science festivals explaining them the potential benefits of medical imaging. I have presented scientific work at various international conferences and worked in over 5 clinical trials. In the past, I have also enjoyed working at the interface of business, science & technology while starting-up a boutique clinical research organisation.

Teaching Experience:

10/2011-04/2013: Co/supervised various student projects, Kings College London, UK

04/2008-04/2010: Senior Tutor and Invigilator, UCD, Ireland
School of medicine: Designed and delivered 'Applied Research and Statistics' for 4th year Radiology, School of mathematics: Differential and Multivariate Calculus, Statistics, Matrices & Vectors

09/2007-01/2008: Teaching Assistant, University of Strathclyde, UK
EEE department: Probability and stochastic process

Tutoring Approach:

The classes are individually tailored. The students tell me in advance which topic they want to learn. I prepare a few questions & solutions for the chosen topic to tutor during our joint session and encourage students to bring specific exercises to the table related to the chosen topic. At the end of the session, I try to point out the key points learned during our session.
Note: If you can form a group of 2-3 students (max), students share the cost of my hourly class. I offer 50% off on the first lesson.

View Steve's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I have recently semi-retired back to Oxford after two careers: the first in journalism and the second as a teacher and minor academic, having spent the past four years lecturing in English literature at university level. I am, however, a traditionally trained teacher, having qualified at the University of Oxford 20 years ago with the full secondary PGCE in English, with history as my second subject. I can teach all aspects of English and all periods of literature from GCSE level upwards, but undergraduate students may want to know that my academic specialism is in 19th century literature, and my doctoral research was on Dickens. Alongside my tutoring work, I continue to do examining, coursework moderation and consultancy work for the leading exam board in the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' experience, mainly teaching all three varieties of A level English to the specifications of three different awarding bodies, at various colleges of further education. I also have considerable experience of GCSE English (mainly post-16 retakes, also in the FE context) and have taught within a local authority adult education service, as well as at university. I also have several years' prior experience of seeing one-to-one students privately. I have been an examiner for A level English literature since 2000, a coursework moderator for the same since 2009, and am currently a senior examiner for A level English language and literature.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I think I am friendly and approachable, adopting an informal style of session, though I do insist on academic rigour where it is called for, and I have the expertise to back it up. I believe in a collaborative approach, with the full and ongoing involvement of parents, particularly of younger students, and would also expect to liaise by e-mail with the student's English teacher at school. I see the tutor's role as supporting mainstream education, not as something separate from it. I am aways well prepared, and wil go the extra mile by researching material which students have to cover, as well as reading and where appropriate marking students' work, in my own time.

Personal Description:
I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, with a Master's degree in Research Psychology (cum laude), a research Doctorate from the University of Oxford, and an ongoing second doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy. I also have a special Chartership with the British Psychological Society in the Division of Academics, Researchers and Teachers of Psychology. During my working life, I have written or contributed to a number of peer reviewed publications in the the fields of critical theory, research methods, psychology and development studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught psychology, social theory, philosophy and research methods at a number of universities, including Cambridge and Oxford. This formal teaching ranged from undergraduate to masters level, and even included some thesis supervision. In addition, I have experience of training outside of the academic context, including the military, government, and corporate contexts.

Tutoring Approach:

I see learning as more than just memorising knowledge, or getting through an exam. As a result, I prefer to work with people who want to gain a deeper understanding of issues, and who find meaning in locating knowledge in a broader framework of wellbeing.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Italian with a degree in European Language and extensive teaching experience. I have been based in Oxford for the past 6 years, after having lived in different European countries. I am an enthusiast linguist and my multilingual family is testimonial to that (a French husband, and trilingual children).

Teaching Experience:

I have gained experience in teaching to both adults and younger students (secondary school and degree level), both in formal context (I taught in university degree courses and schools) and less formal (evening and leisure courses) as well as Italian for business (directly to companies for their employees).

Tutoring Approach:

I privilege the communicative approach as after all languages are made to communicate! This allows all lessons to be more relaxed and rewarding as small results can be achieved - and seen - every time. I have run absolute beginners intensive courses and my aim is to allow the student(s) to go home speaking from the first time, however little it might be. At the same time, I also tend not to forget about grammar as it is the structure of the language and gives a better insight and understanding, but even grammar doesn't necessarily need to be taught in a very conservative manner.

Personal Description:
I'm a Research Fellow at Cranfield University. I found Chemistry very difficult at High School and have worked hard over the last 8 years studying the science, in the process of gaining my Honours degree and Doctorate, to improve my understanding but I honestly still find it difficult at times. I have a huge amount of enthusiasm for my science and find myself reading Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy in my spare time as well as watching countless lectures and home made videos from other scientists on YouTube.

Teaching Experience:

I have a moderate amount of tutoring experience but I'm confident that this is compensated by my energy and knowledge of my field, I love what I do and revel in helping people understand it with me.

Professionally I have worked with many masters students and tutored them on some more advanced aspects of Chemistry such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and practical Organic Chemistry. I also lecture on several subjects at my University and have received excellent feedback.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually try to work with images first to help the student picture what we are trying to learn. I find that once a student has a working model or analogy in their head it is much easier to advance and increase their understanding eventually leading to the removal of the analogy.

I find that exercises are useful to build a strong memory of facts and figures associated with the science. I don't believe in learning by rote (although it will pass most exams) if you are interested in a sound understanding of a theory or subject. Any tutoring that I provide will be tailored to the student's particular preference in learning style.

My TEFL qualification has certified me as capable of teaching English as a foreign language to young learners, teenagers, large groups, one on one, business language and social.
From my time at school and also at university I understand comprehensively the skills required to achieve optimum marks and I have an extensive knowledge for History of Art at both A Level and University Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for the past three years and in those years I have predominantly taught younger children (6-14 year olds) as well as young adults (18-27 year olds). These have been in small groups or private tuition. I have taught students from a variety of countries including Russia, China, Italy and France to name a few.
I am more than capable of nurturing and handling the quietest and shyest of students to the very naughty and the very confident!
I was a peer mentor throughout University and helped settle new students into university life and assisted with any problems they may have. I gave talks on essay writing and study skills for both exams and essays at different points throughout the year.
If needed or more convenient I have also been trained to teach over the phone or through skype and have taught several people this way. If this sounds a more appealing means to take your lessons then feel free to ask me about this as an option.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on building a trusting relationshipewith the student and aim to build their confidence in the subject they are struggling with.
I will assess the students standard of knowledge and ask what areas they most wish to cover and what areas they feel they struggle with the most. From this first assessment I will then build a suitable lesson plan and rough timetable of topics and activities for them to complete and work on. So that they feel they are gaining as much as they can from every lesson with me.
I am firm but kind! I have a very calm nature and do not think it is positive to aggressively force students into situations or topics that do not interest them or are of no use. However, I will push them as much as I feel necessary in order for them to progress as far as possible and achieve the highest results.

Personal Description:
I am 36 years old and hold a Masters degree from Oxford University.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring on a one-to-one basis for over 14 years. I also sometimes teach small classes. I am happy teaching children, teenagers, university students and adult learners.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching uses traditional methods and lively interaction. I expect the student to complete tasks between lessons. Without repetition and revision no-one can be expected to remember. Therefore, I am not afraid to go over the most basic elements until they are well known. Solid foundations are the basis for confidence.

Personal Description:
I am 22-years-old and I am currently undertaking a Master's degree in Development Studies at the University of Oxford. I graduated in July from the University of Leeds with a 1st Class Bachelor's degree in French and Spanish. I also hold a Professional Tutoring Certificate from the Tutoring Standards Agency, for which I was awarded a Distinction. I completed a term abroad in Granada where I took an intensive Spanish language course. There I acquired a level C1/2 according to the European framework of reference for languages. I spent one academic year in Paris where I was a British Council Language Assistant teaching English as a Foreign Language in two secondary schools in the suburbs.

Teaching Experience:

I undertook a seven month teaching placement in Versailles, France (October 2013 - April 2014), where I taught English as a Foreign Language in two Secondary Schools. I have also given private lessons since 2012, as well as teaching private English lessons in France. One girl I taught increased her grade from a B to an A* in her French GCSE oral. Furthermore, I assisted language classes at my school between 2009 and 2011 for years 7 - 11.

Tutoring Approach:

My approaches are various. Having completed my A levels and GCSEs relatively recently, exam technique is still fresh in my mind and I hope to be able to teach students how exams work as (perhaps unfortunately) this is very important these days. However I am a strong advocate of instilling the foundations of language, namely grammar and vocabulary, as this is how I learnt best and how you can understand a language. I also believe in immersing yourself as much as possible, for those who are serious about learning a language - by watching films, TV programmes, reading books and writing. Practice is vital if one is to achieve a high level and there can be no short cuts. I am also happy to work through topics in a textbooks and helping with exercises as, as mentioned earlier, practice really does make perfect.

Of course, lessons will be tailored to individual needs, and they can be as formal or informal as one likes: from straight grammar to half an hour of chatting for those who aren't learning a language for an exam, for example.
