Personal Description:
I have 5 years experience working as a Spanish teacher in secondary schools in London teaching years 7 to 13, and my exam classes have a very good track record. I have worked with both Edexcel and AQA in this time, so I know what it takes to get the best grades, especially at GCSE. I am also very happy to work with younger children, helping them to feel more confident with mastering the basics in a language. If your child needs extra support or practice with any particular area, just let me know.

I have made several trips to South America, and have lived in Chile and Spain. I am also a fan of Spanish and Latin American films and literature, so if you would like to incorporate some more cultural aspects into lessons just let me know, as this can be very motivating.

Teaching Experience:

I am PGCE qualified, CRB checked, and have been working as a Spanish teacher for the last 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I get on well with children and young people, and would be happy to focus on any area with which they needed extra help. Sessions would be individually tailored and at the student's own pace. If there are any specific texts, exam boards or textbooks with which the pupil is working I would request some advance warning of this.

Personal Description:
Salut - Je m'appelle Solène ( pronounced so-len )

I was born and brought up in Paris, although much of my family roots lie in Brittany. I came to England initially to learn the language - but ended up meeting my future husband and starting a family here in Dorking, Surrey.

Teaching Experience:

Apart from the obvious fact that I am a native French speaker - I have been teaching French since 2009 in schools, including Duke Of Kent in Ewhurst and Petite Ecole in Reigate, but mainly privately to exam students or adults wishing to improve their skills. I have also been called upon to help with some translation and making phone calls to France to assist people with such issues as property.

Tutoring Approach:

Having initially gauged a student's abilities in the language - I will prepare each lesson to their specific needs & requirements - whether it be working on grammar or perhaps general conversational skills. My aim is to give people confidence and make learning enjoyable.

Personal Description:
Bonjour, my name is Andree, I am a French lady and I would like to help anyone who wishes to learn my language. I have live in UK for more than 30 years; I have mainly worked in Market Research as an International Director, I have learnt to make people at ease when using a foreign language and most of all to adapt to their level to make it pleasant and to want to go further in learning to write or/and speak French.

Teaching Experience:

I help GCSE students get ready for their final French exam as well as adults who need to get confident in their fluency when travelling to France or to socialise but also when translation is needed for personal purposes.
I have 4 grandchildren in pre-school and school to whom I teach French using traditional methods such as books, games, songs.

Tutoring Approach:

Whatever, you are looking for yourself or your children, I will make my upmost for the tutee to enjoy learning in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere .

Personal Description:
I am a freelance software developer and professional trainer who also provides one-to-one personal tuition services in computing, programming and IT related subjects. I took my first steps in programming as long ago as 1981, and have been a professional software developer since 1987. Along with the teaching and training side of my career, I develop software and web-sites for my clients, and I have been published several times in respected programming-journals.

I am also a BBC preferred-supplier, and am a Professional member of the Association for Computing Machinery (founded in 1947 - the world's largest and most prestigious scientific and educational computing society).

Teaching Experience:

I have provided private-tuition services since 1992, and was a lecturer at Roehampton University from September 1998 to October 1999. I have provided professional training services since 1999, during which time I have delivered over 100 professional courses in programming and software design and development, for companies in the aircraft industry, computer gaming, banking, web development and the BBC.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching and training pivots on the most important factor - passion for one's subject. I attempt to demonstrate to the student the power and beauty of what computing and programming involves, and place a firm emphasis on explaining concepts in the simplest and most day-to-day terms.

In the sphere of private tuition for children and young adults, I have found that working through past exam-papers with the pupil or student is an extremely effective way of helping the individual's understanding and exam performance to improve.

In the sphere of the professional training I provide, clients cite frequently my passion for the subject, the original and clear explanations that I use, and the depth of my technical understanding, as the factors of note in their view of my services.

Personal Description:
I can help with the new GCSE/GCE exams and Brighton College and Westminster School scholarship coaching are recent successes. I am also a former Advanced Skills Teacher with many years of experience working in a comprehensive school with all abilities from GCSE to A levels / Oxbridge entrance. My key priority is to provide a safe learning setting where the learner and my starting point is always to be where the learner is rather than a fixed programme in advance.

Enhanced DBS / CRB status February 2014

Clearly you will need to know if this will be the right arrangement for you, so the first lesson is free with no commitment to continue.

If your child has the potential, I can enable him or her to achieve the highest grades: knowing what the exam requires you to do will make a difference

Teaching Experience:

I have coached a pupil who gained a scholarship for Brighton College and another who was awarded the Queen's Scholarship to enter Westminster School, London. In both cases exams tested a whole range of traditional skills set at a relatively demanding level for this age group. Future candidates would be welcome to contact me.

Prior to this, I have taught pupils from 11 years upwards to Advanced Level pupils heading for Oxbridge. I have worked as an examiner for an exam board, set and marked papers at GCSE and taught adults in evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

Tuition offered via Skype which offers greater flexibility of timings, lengths of lesson etc as well benefits for teaching using Google docs which record lesson progress, better use of resources etc.

Tuition also offered in student's home within Brighton if required or a mix of the above

On-line tasks can be set in between lessons to practise skills learnt.

Lively approach including games where appropriate.

Teaching linked to the exam board specification you are working towards including specific skills at GCSE / A level.

Grammar taught relevant to your needs: to include the new course requirements when published.

Feedback after each session to parents/ guardian or carer if requested to include likely grade potential at GCSE / A level or IB

A / AS / IB level students will work through short accessible texts to build up topic vocabulary but also support class tuition in your college or school.

Common Entrance Level candidates or specific entry exams for schools will receive very focused teaching to prepare for the exam.

Adult tuition for business or leisure.

I would be pleased to work with students in groups of 2 or 3 for a reduced fee per person.

Fees are a little higher than perhaps for other tutors, but you will be receiving a premium service with many more benefits than a session's tuition: every 10th lesson is free!

Personal Description:
I am a hard working individual who has done extremely well in education. I believe that some pupils do face some difficulties and as such, I want to help those who are committed to achieving their maximum potential. I am still studying my A-levels and have a lot of spare time which I want to make the most of. I am very mature for my age and believe in achieving success in everything I do.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for a year now and feel very confident improving pupil's ability and ensuring progress. My ability to explain concepts and ideas is very clear and I always make sure my teaching material suits the needs of my students. I am very committed and the outcome of my students really matters to me.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching involved considering the needs of my students. I assess the needs of my students and see where their weaknesses lie. This way I can focus my time on where it is needed most.

Personal Description:
I am studying Computer Systems Engineering at City, University of London, meaning that I study engineering mathematics every day.. Having achieved over 80% in my first year at university encourages me to carry on a high standard of achievements in my academic journey and then professional career.

Studying Mathematics at University has allowed me to master diverse areas of mathematics from Calculus to Linear Algebra. I am confident I can inspire tutee`s to enhance their problem-solving skills and understanding of mathematical terms.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like some general advice.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for two years and have help students from most academic levels, from foundation university to KS3.

I am currently involved in a volunteering program where I teach secondary school students.

Having experience in helping students from different academic levels I am confident that I can push my tutees to perform to the best of their abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I start by explaining the meaning of mathematical functions or just give a summary of how this can be understood by relating it to daily life or through the use of logic. If they manage to understand, I will go through multiple examples with them. Finally, I will leave some questions for them to do and as they work I request that they tell me every step they make and the reasoning behind it.

I also offer a past paper session, which includes me and the tutee solving a paper together that will help him advance his exam skills and improve their confidence.

Note: I might request to see the tutee`s syllabus and lecture notes as this will help me be in sync with the teacher/lecturer. From this, I am able to thoroughly prepare my sessions, and straight away start to build tutee confidence by helping them become knowledgeable in areas they were once weakest in.

Personal Description:
Reliable and qualified Maths Teacher with 20+ years of experience of tutoring individuals and groups.

I care deeply about teaching and learning in general and the teaching of mathematics is a particular passion for me. I am a secondary school mathematics teacher with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have completed a BSc in Accounting, an ACCA qualification and a PGCE course. I am currently studying for my MSc Education degree. I have 20+ years experience as a tutor and 10+ years as a teacher. I have also worked for an acounting firm for 5 years and worked as a company director for 7 years.

My first session is provided free of charge and I use this session to understand the needs of prospective pupils. At the end of the session, I have a frank and honest discussion with the pupil and/or their guardians. I use these conversations to listen to the concerns of the pupils and/or their guardians and present an outline of my assessment of the student's areas of strengths and weaknesses. I also suggest a course of action to help the pupil move forward.

Teaching Experience:

I have been providing tuition in mathematics for over 20 years and have been a secondary school Mathematics Teacher for over 10 years. I have tutored A Level, university, AAT, CAT, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA students in accounting for over 10 years and have 5 years experience teaching professioanl accounting courses in private colleges. I have experience teaching to individual students, to small groups and to classes of up to 35 students. I have helped four year old pupils take their first steps in arithmetic and forty plus year old students finally understand how algebra works. In accounting I have worked with 16 year olds studying accounting for the first time for A Levels or CAT or AAT and 40+ year olds who have working in accounting for a long time and are studying for their professional exams.

I have helped students gain confidence in their own mathematical ability when they have been convinced by the academic system that they are incapable of doing well in the subject. I have also helped higher attaining students to challenge themselves and aspire to become even better. Most recently my Year 7 students were the only gold medallists in the UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge in my secondary school. They did considerably better than all the other Year 7 students and even all the Year 8 students in the school who sat the same exam.

Tutoring Approach:

During the last two decades I have worked with many hundreds of students and have read research studies from academics around the world on the subject of attainment in mathematics. My own experience is in keeping with all the studies I have read about this topic. The overwhelming majority of students can do well in mathematics provided they have the confidence, the techniques and willingness to work hard. Even after only six to eight weeks of tuition, all the students I have tutored have improved by at least one grade or one level.

I tell all prospective pupils there is no magic bullet or shortcut. To achieve success in mathematics a few things are key: understanding the concept well; understanding when and how to apply it in different situations; lots of practice in applying it in different scenarios and short, regular revision sessions. So my only pre-conditions before I agree to work with any student are: a positive attitude; a commitment to put in the time and effort required to bring about the improvement in their grades; and at least one ninety minute session every week.

It is important to me that students should enjoy mathematics and look forward to their sessions with me. To ensure this I use a variety of different resources to explain concepts to students and am a firm believer in using physical and computer based study tools and aides to complement the standard oral and written tools used to teach mathematics. I also believe in linking the mathematics that we study to the real world to increase students' engagement with the topic and their understanding of its relevance. I am very patient and empathetic to my student's needs and once they develop in confidence I encourage all my students to challenge themselves regularly. Depending on the amount of time available, I usually help students cement their mastery of the foundations of arithmetic and algebra before moving on to establish fluency in statistics, geometry and problem solving.

Personal Description:
Hello! I am an undergraudate student at the University of St Andrews reading Modern History and Psychology. I'm Italian but speak English fluently as I attended an International high school. Learning languages is very important in my family: my father speaks 7 languages fluently, so there was also competition between my sister to see who could learn the most! I speak English and Italian fluently, as well as Spanish. I'm quite confident in speaking French too (although I may be slightly out of practice!). I'm currently learning Arabic and Russian with the University. I took Biology for A-Level, as well as Histroy, Spanish and French.

Teaching Experience:

While at school, I founded a Student Tutoring system, where A-Level students would spend an hour after school tutoring GCSE students in specific subjects. This was very successful; the GCSE students who attended our weekly tutoring sessions achieved (on average) GCSEs two grades higher than their predicted grades.

Tutoring Approach:

During my first lesson with any new tutee, I will test them to identify the way in which they learn best.
Many students believe that the only way to learn a subject is to read and reread their textbooks. While this technique may work for some, it's completely ineffective for most.
For example, I realised that the best way I learn is by teaching the material to someone else who has no knowledge of the subject. Others may find that mindmaps and flash cards help them best, while others still find watching YouTube videos to work.
Each student is completely unique in the way they learn, and my teaching style will reflect that. I keep notes on each tutee, in order to identify any patterns in their learning. This will help me structure each session so that the student gets the most out of it.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!

Je m'appelle Annie (I am Annie). I am a private French language tutor.

I teach French from beginners to GCSE level and I am qualified to degree level French. I have been learning French since I was at primary school and love the language and culture.

I achieved an A grade in my A-level oral examination and a high 2:1 (68%) grade in my French grammar exam at university on advanced French grammar. Furthermore, I also received a 1st class grade (73%) on an essay written in French on public policy.

I know the GCSE French syllabus very well and I can definitely help my students achieve the highest grades. I aim to tick the boxes of all GCSE French exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching French privately from beginners to GCSE level.

Things covered on the GCSE level exam including:
- hobbies and leisure etc
- different tenses (past, present, future, conditional, imperfect and subjunctive)
- writing, reading, speaking and listening to French on a good level.

Tutoring Approach:

I use GCSE textbooks and mock exams to teach. I teach my students advanced grammar to get the top marks on their GCSE exams.

Subjects
  • French
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£12 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£12 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I received a First Class Honours B. Sc. degree in computer science from Cardiff University, UK, in 2016 and I am currently working towards the Ph.D. degree in the field of Cyber Security at the same University. My research revolves around the security and privacy of Internet of Things devices (IoT). I have experience with programming languages such as Python, Java, and Matlab, as well as with a variety of other technologies. As a current PhD student I also have experience in various research and study methodologies. Finally I am fluent in Greek, English, and Italian.

Teaching Experience:

For the past year, apart from being a private tutor teaching mainly GCSE Computing/ICT and Greek Language, I have also been a Teaching Assistant at Cardiff University. There I have been teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students programming; Python and Java as well as Web Applications Technologies. Additionally, I have been supervising group projects for year 2.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to provide a solid grounding in the subject while paying close attention to the needs of the individual. Therefore, I will vary my tutoring style depending on the ability and needs of the student. I aim to run my tuition in support of the progression of my students through their subject syllabus, but I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires. I will also offer pre-exam revision sessions for all exams including modular resits and conduct end of topic tests and mock exams should the student desire.

As I aim to tailor my tuition to the individual I expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their subject progressions and their individual needs.
