I can travel easily to areas within London W, HA, UB, SL, KT, HP, WD, TW, SW, NW, HA etc
Although I am not a native French person I am a trainee French teacher and am a fluent speaker over the last 20 years, I understand that some people require a native speaker but not everyone can teach and I can prove my ability through my numerous high achievers and results. I am an excellent teacher and all my students grades get up to A* when they take my advise.

I am doing a PGCE in Teaching French in secondary schools and will complete in June 2017. I tailor my lessons via different types of presentations to suit the individual learner from my laptop and I am familiar with all exam boards including AQA, OCR, WJEC, Edexcel and Eduqas (new GCSE exam-board) etc. I also use a range of textbooks depending on the students requirements. I can also provide references before tutoring commences.

Personal Description:

I can teach in the privacy of your own home or you can come to my home if preferred. I also have a B.A (Hons) Marketing with French. I have been teaching Adults for the past 6 years and Children for the last 6 years. I have lived in Paris for 5 yrs and whilst studying for my Degree this played an important part into the French culture and customs. I have completed half of my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Teaching French secondary.

Helen B.A.Hons, CIM (PGCE)

Teaching Experience:

My students include those from Merchents Taylors, Brunel University, St John Fisher Primary School Oxford University and Eaton College to name but a few. I can certainly move you at least two grades up to the A* if that is what your student requires.
I have been teaching French for the last 7 years to children from the ages of 3 yrs to 65 yrs within a group environment Reception, Primary, GCSE, AS ans A2 levels, Degree and Adults. Fun French using music, games,activity sheets.
All lesson plans are tailored to suit individuals or groups from beginners to advanced levels using a 12 week structured lesson plan progressing to the desired level that the individual requires.
Homework only if requested for adults and children.

Tutoring Approach:

It is now compulsory in all Primary schools in England for children to take up another language like French, so get ahead of the rush and get your child ready for the changes which will be implemented next year.
I have a very flexible approach and use phonetic methods as my specialty is in accuracy of pronunciation.

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.

Personal Description:
My name is Vanessa, I am from Spain and have been living in the UK for the past 9 years. I have been working as a teacher for 11 years and now I have decided to start tutoring so I can go back to studying.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a Modern Foreign Language teacher in Spain and worked in secondary schools in my country and in France. In 2007 I moved to the UK where I was awarded QTS and started as a supply teacher in primary until I became a full time Early Years and primary teacher. I have taught all years in primary, I am very familiar with the EYFS Early Learning Goals and the new National Curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

In all the years I have been teaching in primary I have seen many children who are below the average level of their class and children whose potential is not being appropriately exploited. My idea is to find the gaps in the foundations of their Maths and English (grammar, reading and writing) and help them close such gaps so those foundations are solid and can be built on, in the case of children who are not quite there yet. In the case of children who have the potential to achieve higher than average, my approach is to move them forward by identifying what the next steps are and providing them with activities that are challenging but achievable.
In my experience, with primary age children the most significant learning comes from hands on experience, hence my way of teaching and helping students always involve materials, games and activities that children can enjoy and explore as well as becoming the leaders of their own learning.

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:
I have extensive experience of different photographic genres over many years with a particular specialism in wildlife, landscape and creative environmental photography projects. I have a first degree in BA(Hons) Wildlife & Environmental Photography from Blackpool and the Fylde College and an MA in Wildlife Documentary Production.

Previous to taking these courses as a mature student I practiced location and journalistic photography in my capacity as Film Unit Manager for the London Borough of Greenwich, photographing on film sets such as About a Boy with Hugh Grant and the remake of the Four Feather with Kate Hudson and Heath Ledger.

I have won a number of prestigious photography competitions including the Royal Horticultural Society silver award for macro images of flowers and was a finalist in the Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. I have exhibited in the Look 13 International Photography Exhibition, other locations in the northwest of England, London and New York. I have also made two short wildlife films which mix documentary with fictional elements in story telling.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at a number of leading institutions including Ravensbourne College of Media and Communication, Blackpool and Fylde College, Liverpool University and Cumbria Wildlife Trust as well as personal tuition and mentoring on creative photography. I have also volunteered on nature photography projects with Embrace Cooperation Ltd for secondary school children and adults. I can teach you how to use your DSLR camera plus the basics and more advanced tools for creative photography and documentary style projects. Complete beginners to the more advanced photographer welcome.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a 1.5 hour introductory photography lesson to individual adult learners at the special rate of 75. This may be enough to help you get to grips with your camera and/or establish whether the teaching methods and aims fit. Also good as a present!

Please note that all individual adult lessons will take place in or near the Waterloo/Southbank area of central London.

I like to teach photography in a creative way, allowing the pupil to develop their own style through a process of fieldwork, set projects and the study of other artists and photographers. They will start to see the world in a different way. It is a great confidence builder as well as a skills provider.

Comment from a previous student:

"Just a quick note to say thank you for such an inspiring and brilliant course. ............. I have learnt so much, it's been a real inspiration to me." Sarah-Jane

I am also able to teach groups at special rates and team-building days with corporates and organisations. Mentoring of individuals in the process of career change and personal development. Please enquire about any of the above.

N.B. Lessons can be taken within one year of purchase. Additional rates quoted for travel beyond central London. Most teaching takes place at a location on the Southbank.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Colchester most of my life, and had an uncle who was a teacher; this inspiring me to become involved in education, after having worked in other occupations.
My interests include drama, photography, salsa dancing, classic cars and travel. I am also actively involved in a number of societies, including being a committee member.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2003.
I am experienced in 1 to 1 tuition, and have also worked as a part time college lecturer. I currently work as a
training manager (in work based learning in transport), as well as a tutor.
I've also been involved in verifying learning material, and have worked with LAC/SEN students.
I aspire to eventually become a qualified (QTS) teacher.
I am a member of the Institute for Learning, and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to input their own ideas and opinions into tutorials, as I feel this can help their learning process, over merely having a tutor "talking", and them "listening".
Basically, my approach to tutoring is like a "two way street", with good communication and interaction between
both parties, which in turn can make the learning experience more fulfilling for the student.
I set homework for students, (where applicable).

Personal Description:
FIRST LESSON FREE - This is an opportunity for me to assess your level and expectations and for you to decide if you are happy with me and my teaching methods.

As a speaker of four languages I know what it feels like to be a student as well as a teacher, so I like to ensure my lessons are not boring but also not just fun and no learning development happens.

I have a purpose designed classroom in my house, with whiteboards etc and a wealth of teaching material, a real teaching environment encourages good learning.

Teaching Experience:

2001-2005 Qualified as a Mandarin teacher at the Taipei Langauge Insitute and taught people from the UK, USA, Japan and numerous other countries.

2006-date Having moved to the UK I have taught at BBC Worldwide, London Conversation Piece, Basingstoke Queen Mary College, as well as numerous one to one classes for adults and children of all levels from holiday conversations, academic like GCSE & A Levels and professional usage such as legal, museums etc.

In August 2015 I travelled to Beijing to undertake further teacher training at the Beijing Language & Culture University, as I feel it is important to not become complacent and look to learn new methods and techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student is different so whilst my all classes cover the basics, they all are developed to personally meet your requirements and expectations.
I use various teaching methods, such as role play, newspapers, television episodes, even a trip to Chinese restaurant as well as a variety of text books and mock tests.
I will explain the grammar and how culture effects the language.
I speak with the standard correct Chinese pronunciation and use both simplified and traditional characters and even classical.
It is important to me that you both enjoy the classes but also see your Chinese develop.
Naturally lessons will cover, talking, reading, writing, listening

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 to 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 to work on more specific and challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are constantly motivated and encouraged in order to self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

I also strive to make lessons as interactive as I can. 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 have a BSc in medicinal chemistry (1st class Hons) with an award winning viva as judged by Sygnature.

I cover all aspects of chemistry encountered up to and including degree level. I am currently studying for my MSc.

I can give sound advice on personal development, exam technique and revision skills.
Having studied medicinal chemistry, a large part of my degree covered human physiology, disease and drugs which is why I also offer biology as a secondary tuition.

Above A-level my speciality is in organic and synthetic chemistry, I can help with all aspects including mechanistic rationale, retrosynthesis and enantio/ stereoselective syntheses as well as the all important dissertation/ viva.

Academic transcripts or examples of my work are available on request.

I'm easy going, clinical and analytical which are all important traits for good academic progression.

I am willing to travel for sessions although travel expenses will need to be covered at 20p/ mile

Teaching Experience:

Creating a colourful life - Loughborough University
These courses ran to educate children between primary and A-level in various aspects of inorganic chemistry. Topics covered were designed to show the diversity of chemistry applied industrially to things such as thermochromic paints, fingerprinting and trace detection.

A-level chemistry tuition - Private tuition 2012 - 2014
I have already tutored a small number of students who have gone on to successfully complete there A - levels with progression to UK universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe strongly that no two people learn in the same manner; while some respond well to repeat readings by themselves, other people learn well through lecturing and taking notes. It's fundamental to get an understanding of this before commencing tutoring, personally i liked having spoken word followed up by practice exam questions to apply the knowledge.

Second to actually tutoring the academic aspects of science, I emphasise the importance of good exam technique. A large part of any tutoring would be aimed at ensuring the student understands what an exam question is asking and what is relevant in response - a sound knowledge with knowing how to apply it is a key to success.

Personal Description:
I am 53 years old, have lived in Manchester all of my life (except for a brief time in Glasgow where I met my wife!) We have five children and usually have one or two foster children with us. We love to do stuff together; camping, fishing, walking, canoeing, you name it, we'll have tried it. By my friends I am known as Bar-B-Q Steve. To my tutees I'm known by a variety of names but mainly as the guy who helped them get where they wanted to get to. They all started in Manchester but are now truly all over the world doing some amazing things; this brings me the greatest pleasure.

Teaching Experience:

I gained Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) in 1987. Since then I have worked in both High School teaching Physics and in Primary School as a class teacher. Five years ago I further qualified as a specialist maths intervention teacher. I presently work at a Primary School running maths intervention programs. I have received and given training in the new 2014 National Curriculum and am therefore aware of new approaches being used by schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Being a current school teacher, I am always keen to find a strategy that fits alongside what your child's school is providing. This I do by studying materials your child brings home, observing strategies which your child uses and occasionally by speaking to schools. I believe lessons should be both educational and enjoyable. There is a pleasure in self-improvement which I will want to build into your child so that they grow in self-confidence through learning.

Personal Description:
I have 10 years experience of teaching and tutoring at all levels up to university (lecturer for 5 years) and have all 5 star feedback. My tutees get great results (93% As and A*s this year) and most importantly, show outstanding improvements in both understanding and confidence.

I am really passionate about science and teaching: during my academic career, I have been fortunate enough to have plenty of opportunities to combine the two at a variety of levels. I come from a very large family and have been involved in work with children from a young age - from riding instructor to homework 'buddy' and in the last 10 years tutoring and teaching. I love the moment that you see the light of understanding come on in the person that you are working with - I got into science for these moments myself and to be honest, it's almost as rewarding to see them in someone else! It is particularly exciting when you see someone go from frustration to 'getting it'.

I'm extremely patient, calm and focused. I work best with individuals or small groups of 2-3 students.

Teaching Experience:

All exam boards plus IB
GSCE: This year's students achieved cracking results in biology, chemistry, maths, physics and geography. Almost all As and A*s - I was very proud of them!
A-level:
Again, almost all As in biology and chemistry. Most came to me with predicted Ds so we were all delighted with the results.
Primary level:
My own children were partially home-schooled so I have copious experience there!
11-14:
I currently tutor in maths and science, I used to run a weekend biology group for adolescents and have taught English as a secondary language at this level
University level:
Range of subjects including biology, biochemistry, nutrition, aquaculture, fisheries economics, thermodynamic engineering

Tutoring Approach:

The foundation of my approach is to building confidence and enthusiasm in my pupils. I use a combination of exam questions and structured sessions. This allows the student to become familiar and comfortable with the format of questions, and to more easily identify what the examiner is asking. It also allows me to focus the effort on where there are gaps in the knowledge or understanding.
I am extremely patient & able to come up with new and innovative ways to help my students overcome whatever problems they experience in the subjects I teach. I like to see the students put in some effort because I think the best results are achieved that way but I am always supportive.

Personal Description:
I am a passionate, patient and friendly psychology Assistant Psychologist looking to support students in their GCSE and A-Level and level psychology. I appreciate that finding the right tutor, motivation and support can be difficult and therefore will offer the first lesson free as a taster! Having been a student myself, I understand how stressful the period can be - the not knowing which exam questions will arise in the exam, having to retain a host of studies and worrying that you will go blank in the exam. Totally normal worries! However, together we can identify key areas you feel you need support in whether that be exam technique, looking at past mock and/or specimen papers, understanding the assessment objectives in relation to specific questions or simply quizzing if you need a "study partner". There are many forms of support that can be tailored to your needs.

Teaching Experience:

Although I am not a qualified teacher, I have completed degree level poster conferences, internal presentations to peers and lecturers, led mindfulness and relaxation sessions for adults experiencing chronic conditions in an outpatient service and currently co-facilitate an anxiety management group with young people that have eating disorders and self-harming behaviours as an Assistant Psychologist. Essentially, I really enjoy working with people and believe that my clinical and research experiences will enable me to better understand your needs and support you during this period.

I am aware that since completing my GCSEs in 2008 and A-Levels in 2010, the exam specs have changed. For this reason, I wish to tutor GCSE/A-Level students on the AQA syllabus only given the time frame. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone for further details.

Tutoring Approach:

Simply put, I adopt a person-centrerd approach when working with individuals. It is all about what you want to achieve and understanding the information in a way that suits your learning style. For example, I am a visual learner - anything that has colour/structure in the form of a spider diagram suits me very well. We all learn differently and hopefully we can gauge which method suits you best so that you can 1. Retain the information, 2. Enjoy the revision time 3. Achieve the best possible marks 4. Learn in a way that accommodates your skills - REAL! It is time to get "real" you can and will do it!

My aim is to enable students to have the confidence to learn the course content and have the self-belief that they can do this! I would prefer to do tutoring in a public library (if possible) but not in my own home.
