Personal Description:
I am a young, female primary school teacher in the Doncaster/Wakefield area. Aside from my enthusiasm for teaching and helping children to achieve, I am interested in academic areas including sociology and languages. I enjoy travel and reading. I have worked voluntarily as a teaching assistant and completed a degree in Sociology before training to be a teacher. I now work as a supply teacher at primary level and as a personal tutor to primary and secondary level children. I hold an enhanced DBS check dated September 2015.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher who has taught classes of all ages at primary level. As a supply teacher, I have worked in many different schools and, as such, I develop positive relationships very quickly with both children and adults. I enjoy working with individuals and small groups in academic tasks and find that children are very responsive to this lower teacher-pupil ratio. I have found that working in these situations really helps to boost children's concentration and confidence in their work. They also feel more comfortable to ask questions in areas they find difficult. When tutoring, I am to create a positive, friendly and professional relationship where children feel comfortable with what they are learning, but also feel they can ask for help when required.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that children learn in many different ways - some by seeing and visualising, some by talking and discussing, and some by doing a physical or mental activity. I aim to tutor children using the learning style that best suits them. In a classroom, it is often difficult to meet the needs of every child. Personal tuition provides children with valuable one-to-one time, where the focus is on them and them alone. I believe that personal tuition does much to increase achievement in those weaker areas, but also serves to challenge and develop knowledge in stronger areas. Following a free initial consultation, I provide personalised programmes of study tailored exactly to meet the needs of the child involved. I am passionate about helping children to reach their full potential and will do all I can to make this happen. Sessions take place in the child's own home and are arranged on a flexible basis with parent or guardian. I can provide tuition from 30 minutes per week to more intensive programmes consisting of several hours per week in the school holidays.

I currently have slots available on weekday evenings and am available most Saturday mornings and early afternoon. I am not available on Sundays.

Personal Description:
I am a secondary Head of Music in North London, living in Hertfordshire, with a first class Music degree from the University of Oxford.

I have six years of teaching and tutoring experience for both AQA and Edexcel GCSE exams, and Edexcel AS and A Level. I teach and play the clarinet and piano, as well as having studied music theory, history and various other aspects of music to a very high level.

I am happy to tutor school-age pupils to help with their classroom work, GCSEs and A-Levels, and also teach music theory in preparation for ABRSM examinations. I am also a teacher of clarinet for all ages, up to grade 8 standard, and of piano up to grade 6 standard.

Teaching Experience:

- Currently working as a Head of Music in North London, teaching students aged 11-18.

- I have taught for six years at a range of secondary schools, working as both a classroom teacher and as an instrumental and vocal teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to first help pupils work through problems with their existing school work, in order to patch up any difficulties that they are currently having, then to additionally teach them extra things in order to keep their interest in the subject.

I would expect pupils to complete an amount of homework each week, depending on their existing workload, in order to help them to make progress.

Subjects
  • Music
  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Fully qualified teacher with 25 years experience of teaching FRENCH, GERMAN & SPANISH to GCSE, AS LEVEL and A LEVEL in schools and colleges. I have also prepared many groups for Cambridge exams in ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE.
I currently teach MODERN LANGUAGES (to A Level) and RELIGIOUS STUDIES (to A Level) in a Sixth Form College.
I teach ADULT LEARNERS too, at all levels, both for GENERAL LANGUAGE and BUSINESS LANGUAGE.
I have prepared hundreds of youngsters over the years for GCSEs and AS/A LEVELS in these subjects and am very familiar with the demands of these courses and exams.

Teaching Experience:

I teach in a Birmingham Sixth Form College where I work as Head of French
I have taught pupils/students in UK schools and Colleges over the last 25 years, specialising particularly in MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and AS/A Levels.
My teaching experience has been mainly in UK schools and colleges but has also included 5 years living and teaching in France, Spain and Germany.
I worked at Stafford College of FE for 9 years where I was head of MODERN LANGUAGES
I have been an Examiner for MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and A Level with a major Examination Board.

Tutoring Approach:

Professional and friendly approach, looking for real, measurable progress and increased confidence for the learner
Most young learners need a tutor who understands the requirements of the GCSE / AS / A Level exams and can train students in tasks that will prepare them for these
I find that students often need their confidence boosting and many discover that they know more than they realised.
Adults also learn fast and are often surprised to find they are more able than they thought

Testimonials
"Thank you for your help over the past few weeks with my remaining assignments, I now feel a lot more confident about writing essays and reports and I am on track for a 2:1 with the results I have received recently.

I think your teaching methods are very good, particularly as from past experience, other tutors tend to just write comments on your work on how to improve it, but this isn't enough if you want to really understand your work, which is particularly vital for a final year student (like me) who will be sitting exams in May.

However, by using a mixture of Skype and written feedback sessions, I have been able to not only achieve good grades but also build upon each assignment in preparation for the next.

As well as this, you have completely calmed my nerves about my work, particularly during the quality assignment that you helped me with back in January!

I would highly recommend you to anyone who may be in need of a tutor...

Thanks again!"
(Ms Liv, Dated 26/04/2014)

"He listens well and always put a positive spin on things. Before I met him I was very stressed with the amount of work, he was very reassuring which gave me a confidence boast."
(Tutee Ms M, 24/03/2013)

"he is not only a good teacher, but he was also a good friend" (Tutee: Mr. M, 23/03/2012)

"Actually, I'm writing to you to thank you first about the effort that you did with me in preparing for the exam for MIS. I got 60 in the exam. So, that's why I would like to continue work with you in preparing for other exam this term"

Personal Description:
I am a 45 year old lady residing in Ashford, Kent. I originally come from Africa and have been in England for 10 years now. I trained as a primary school teacher but resigned after 16 years mainly because I wanted to travel and broaden my experiences. My hobbies are reading and writing (for leisure), travelling and sightseeing, aerobics and swimming. I could however easily call teaching one of my hobbies because I always find myself teaching people wherever I go!

Teaching Experience:

I was a primary school teacher for 16 years but I also did private tutoring as a sideline. I taught English to the age group 9-10years and outside working hours I taught adult literacy classes. I think I did well because I always found myself with so many private students to teach that sometimes it was hard to cope . All the same I enjoyed every minute of it. I have also recently qualified as an EFL teacher and am hoping to start soon.

Tutoring Approach:

When I meet a student for the first time I always believe in taking time to know them. By this I mean their well being and /or state of mind. For example, if a student has come to class only because someone has insisted, then learning will be a chore. Or if they have personal problems, or they are hungry, tired or ill then we will not get very far. So I will take a few minutes to chat and get to know their state of mind as well as reassure them before we start and if there is anything I can do to settle them then that is what I will do first. I am saying this with a view to teaching adults because that is what I hope to do. I also believe in teaching in a very relaxed environment that is conducive to learning so I always try and get rid of all distractions before we start. I have been known to be a good teacher and I hope I will continue with my good style and reputation.

3 years ago, UK postgraduate study enhanced my skills in both English and Chinese. I've been a professional translator and Mandarin teacher for years, so I'm very confident to be a private tutor and make sure you will reach your goal : )

Please contact me if any needs/questions.

Sophy

Teaching Experience:

In 2009, I taught English to preschool students in China. I learned a lot from it, how to communicate with my students, how to achieve their aims and how to deal with their difficulties.

In 2010, I taught two adult foreigners Mandarin Chinese at home via msn and emails. Although they were in the same age group, they had different needs, so I varied my teaching approach. One preferred to learn Chinese culture, so I taught him the history of Chinese festivals and general grammar; the other wanted to learn everyday expressions, so I taught him day-to-day language in terms of various circumstances, such as useful phrases in greetings, at the store, at the restaurant, at the airport and travelling etc.

Last year, I gave one-to-one Mandarin Chinese courses which are specially designed for the students particular needs.

We can have a discussion about your goal first, then we will arrange the time slot for your own course.

Please kindly note that my lessons are only available on weekends and the whole weekdays from 17th Dec. - 21st Dec. 2012

Let's speak Mandarin!!

Tutoring Approach:

First, I need to know my tutees' aims for learning Chinese (e.g. for travelling to China or for personal interests, etc.) so that I can design a way of studying for you that can make the process of learning more effective and interesting.

secondly, I will combine formal teaching content (pinyin, grammar, characters) with interesting informal teaching approaches (learning words and phrases from songs/movies or going to a Chinese restaurant to learn the names of dishes).

You will have fun learning Chinese!

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Have tutored several people throughout my time at university, ranging from KS2 to third year university maths students, including someone studying for their PGCE numeracy test.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very comforting and relaxed approach to tutoring. Too many students are not reaching their full potential because they are intimidated by the subject, and so can't break it down into logical steps. Tutoring styles should be dynamic and flexible, and for students who are already excelling in subjects, you should push them past the level they are at currently at and make them strive for excellence.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£30 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (£35 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a retired primary school teacher who has been a private tutor for fifteen years. I am an experienced and highly qualified counsellor too so my teaching style is supportive and validating.

Teaching Experience:

I was a primary school teacher for 27 years and have been a tutor for 15 years.

Tutoring Approach:

My main approach is to build confidence in a child so that they believe in their own ability to succeed and have skills to solve problems. A child does not need to know the answers but needs to have strategies to work through problems and solve them. This involves accuracy, perseverence, patience and creativity. There is always more than one method and children are encouraged to find their own way to solve solutions using known methods in addition to learning new methods.

Personal Description:
I am friendly and cheerful, I want each individual to achieve their personal best in their chosen subject. I believe that one to one tutoring can be an enormous help to students, particularly where good personal relationships are formed. I enjoy seeing students grapple with difficulties and then move forward - with support and determination, goals can be reached.

Teaching Experience:

I trained to teach in 1980, since then I have taught individuals, classes and groups in the UK and abroad.
I have worked in full time and part time posts in further education, in schools and in individual hourly sessions.
My most recent experience has been as a full time primary school teacher, working in a Warwickshire primary school for the last 15 years with experience of both Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum.
I am used to teaching both those who expect to succeed and those who are more used to failure,

I am currently available and welcome enquiries from individuals seeking to extend their learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in working with each individual and if relevant their parents or guardians.
I aim to tailor an individual porgramme to the needs of each person.
What interests me is finding out what your child needs and how you want me to support him/her then working steadily towards an agreed outcome.
Establishing good communication between your child and me is of paramount importance to success.
I look forward to meeting you.

Personal Description:
With a first class honours degree in Natural Sciences, I am a committed and enthusiastic tutor in all of the sciences and in geography. Before I began tutoring 6 years ago, I worked in systems and business process management with a global technology company.

I am a flexible, yet structured individual who believes that teaching and learning need to focus on a thorough understanding of the concepts, the hows and the whys of science, so that students can apply their knowledge, both in life and in exams, to achieve their full potential. In these times of significant changes to GCSE and A level exams, the ability to apply knowledge to explain or to solve problems (not just the knowledge itself) has become increasingly important.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience ranges from teaching English as a foreign language abroad, through training users in new business systems and more recently, over the last six years as a tutor in science subjects and geography at GCSE and A level across all exam boards.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring programme for each student is individually tailored to their learning style as well as to their objectives and the exam board for their exams. My experience has spanned a wide range of abilities and learning styles and I use a variety of media to best suit the individual student. I promote an interactive style of working to build confidence and like to include practice in exam questions and development of exam technique as well as straight teaching. I want my students to be as enthusiastic about science and geography as I am!

Personal Description:
I am a passionate photographer with 25 years experience based in York, North Yorkshire. I specialise in portraits, documentary, editorial and event photography. I try to evoke and capture a mood within my pictures, a feeling a unique moment, creating images that have impact. I love to work with people, and I like to be able to build up a close rapport with all the clients that I work with.

Teaching Experience:

I hold a Further and Adult Education teaching certificate, I taught on the Access to Photography, at Newcastle College. There I identified individual learning needs, facilitated learning through presentations, activities, instruction and demonstrations. I designed and developed training sessions, assessed student performance, and evaluated training and development for students of all ages.

I have continued to develop my teaching and training working with primary level children in Photography, web design, animation and multimedia. I also teach photography workshops to all levels and am currently teaching on a individual basis , one to one.

Tutoring Approach:

I really value being able to pass on the knowledge that I have gained and thoroughly enjoy the challenges of teaching and the pleasure and joy that someone has when they have understood that knowledge and are able to then put that into practice. I like to be able to tear down the barriers that cause us to feel intimidated and take away those fears and insecurities that can make learning difficult.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Sheena and I have over 5 years' experience working with children. I am currently a Primary School Teacher in Harrow and teach my class the whole curriculum therefore have a good understanding of the national curriculum. I am extremely passionate about Reading, Writing and Mathematics and believe this is the core to a child's education.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching and working with children because it gives me great satisfaction when children progress and achieve their goals.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching a year 4 class at a Primary school in Harrow. I am thoroughly enjoying the class and helping them achieve their potential is at the heart of what I do. I have also taught a year 5 class and a year 4 class in a primary school in Leicester.

I have completed tutoring before and helped a young boy reach his goal of getting into a private school. I have also helped other young learners to improve their reading strategies, maths concepts and boost their confidence. I have delivered tutoring sessions in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and 11+ exams. I can also help children to prepare for their SATS examinations and being a current primary teacher enables me to know the national curriculum well. I hope I can help and support your child to achieve their maximum potential.

My other experience includes working in learning centers tutoring primary school children and being a volunteer at a school.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about children learning and believe the key is to start early so children can sustain their knowledge in order to help them with their future. I have high expectations of children and will support them achieve their goal. I strive to ensure lessons give children an experience which is memorable and engaging.

Personal Description:
I am a chemistry teacher that has taught in a range of classroom environments. I have taught classes of 30 students and also taught students one to one in a classroom. I have experience teaching all the science subjects and will be able to enhance your studies no matter what curriculum you are using.

Skills test: I have passed and completed my skills tests for maths and literature this is required by all teachers.
 
Chemistry certificate: I have a chemistry certificate for subject knowledge enhancement from Canterbury Christ Church University, for A-Level chemistry.

University degrees: I have two degrees, one for my bachelors in integrated science. My second is a PGCE chemistry 11-18 degree for teaching. These were achieved at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Although not every private lesson can have an experiment. I do believe that even though the lessons are outside of a lab, there are still chances to learn from small experiments. I see this as a great opportunity for the students to see what they are learning. Students will also be able to put knowledge to practice, safely.

Teaching Experience:

I am a chemistry teacher that has taught in a range of classroom environments. I have taught classes of 30 students and also taught students one to one in a classroom. I have experience teaching all the science subjects and will be able to enhance your studies no matter what curriculum you are using.

I have a lot of availability and I will work around what the student requires. I also work weekends and school holidays.

Tutoring Approach:

One thing that is extremely clear when working in a school, is that all students learn differently.
Everybody is a genius. But If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid ("Albert Einstein"). These are the lines I work from as a teacher and truly bespoke my lessons to the students I am teaching. The reason for this is to get the best possible outcome for the lesson and the student.
