Personal Description:
I am a mathematics teacher with a master degree in mathematics and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. I am 30 years old and focus completely on private tutoring. I am patient and always have high expectations of my pupils. I am also open to feedback and willing to adapt myself to the requirements.

Teaching Experience:

1 month teaching in academics, 3 years teaching as private teacher in London, 1 year teaching as a PGCE student, another 3 years working as a secondary teacher and form tutor. I have worked full time in comprehensive schools like Bower park, Sydney Russell, Valentines, Angloeuropean high school and also in private schools such as Cranbrook College

Tutoring Approach:

I constantly assess the student in many different ways, like testing, questioning, homework and asking to elaborate explanations. I try to motivate my students with a constant interaction in my teaching. I regularly give homework that i always mark. I am happy using different resources such as ICT and different websites that facilitate the learning process.

Personal Description:
I'm a 46-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

Personal Description:
I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic tutor. I come from an academic background (Molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics) rather than teaching and as such, have a thorough and extensive knowledge of the subjects I tutor in. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with others and I'm also good at explaining some of the more complex elements of biology. I am also registered as a STEM ambassador and visit local schools to share my passion for Biology and Science.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, swimming, playing tennis, walking and watching Hull City!

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored >60 students, mainly in biology at A-level/Highers, but also separate sciences and general science at GCSE level. My students have achieved excellent results; with most improving by at least two grades. Recent successes include an AS student moving from grade E up to a A and an A2 student moving up from an unclassified (U) grade up to a B. I am more than happy to take on students of all abilities. I have also taught at University level (2nd year biochemistry) and have mentored undergraduate and postgraduate students. I have some experience tutoring students with mild specific learning difficulties (ADHD, Asperger's).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student as all have different needs and learning styles. For GCSE/A-level tuition, I usually concentrate on exam practice, with in-depth topic study for the more problematic subjects. I also use multimedia aids to help students visualise biological/chemical processes where appropriate and I have created powerpoint files covering almost all AS and A2 Biology topics.

Personal Description:
In the ten years I've studied bass I've gained a B-Tec National Diploma in music and music tech from Tauntons College and a Higher Diploma in music performance from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford where I am also studying for a Degree in music performance. This education fuels my passion for my instrument, and with such a huge variety of influences to choose from I couldn't see myself doing anything else.

Teaching Experience:

As a new tutor i have limited teaching experience however; during the course of my studies for my degree i have on many occasions had the opportunity to take on the role of the musical director of a performance. As a musical director i have had to think of different ways of explaining a task to my peers and have gained relevant teaching experience in the process.

Tutoring Approach:

I have found the best way to tech someone a new subject is to try and relate the subject to something the student has an understanding of or an interest in.

Personal Description:
I am a first year Physicist at Imperial College London. My clientele include students studying KS3, GCSE and A Level.

Having recently finished secondary school, I have an extensive knowledge of the education system and what is expected of students with regards to content and examination technique etc.

I feel I can relate to young students as I am not much older and have and still am going through the stresses and strains of exams! I understand how daunting Maths can be, as it certainly was for me when I was younger. However, one-to-one tuition may just be the catalyst that helps students 'click', and suddenly they understand this topic or can do this question.

I am undoubtedly competent in Maths, as shown by my results, and hope to show my students that they can improve their grades.

With the run up to those all-important exams, I can help students gain those crucial marks. I believe that to excel in Maths it is imperative that students practice, something which I can assist in.

Teaching Experience:

Have tutored students from a number of year groups and a range of exam boards including Edexcel and AQA.

Tutoring Approach:

I am open to the student's preferred style of learning and revision. I welcome specific queries and offer most help with exam questions. I can also explain whole topics if it was not picked up by the student at school or need further assistance.
Early on, lesson content will be largely dictated by the student until I uncover particular areas of weakness. Nearer to the exam period, emphasis will be on exam technique and working through past papers.

Personal Description:
An A level examiner for AQA and OCR, I specialise in only two (related) subjects, Business Studies and Economics.

Teaching Experience:

For 14 years I taught Business and Economics at a large school where I was the KS5 Coordinator (in charge of A level) for these subjects. As a 6th Form tutor I advised many students on University applications. I have also taught other subjects to younger year-groups.

I managed many other related activities such as Enterprise Education, Dragons' Den competitions, my school group in Vodafone's 'Take a Chance' programme, the school Yearbook - produced completely by students for profit - and the school's sailing club.

Before that? From reading History at Oxford I went in to construction project management in UK and abroad. I was developing very large energy projects in S-E Asia when the 1997-8 financial crisis in that region encouraged a career change.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student's needs are different. I have tutored a wide range; from a home-schooled student following a complete A level course to one wanting an hour a fortnight to improve exam performance. Their locations have ranged from a couple of miles away to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We will emphasise a successful approach to exam technique, which is critical at every level to achieve the highest grade you can. At the same time we will bring the real world of Business and Economics into our tutorials, which makes them a lot more fun to teach as well as to learn.

You have your own virtual classroom with whiteboard, document swapping and audio and video links. I now tutor full-time - online only - after three years training myself while gradually reducing my school timetable and testing Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) platforms to find which offers greatest ease-of-use.

Personal Description:
I'm Marco, a composer and singer currently based in Oxford, UK. I studied composition with Emily Howard at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music for 3 years, and I am currently studying for a BA in Music at The Queen's College, Oxford. While at school I was a composer for the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, having my works performed in various cathedrals and concert halls around the UK and Europe. I am currently studying composition with Professor Robert Saxton at the University of Oxford, and I have received a number of professional commissions, some of which will be performed on BBC Radio 3. I am applying for Masters courses in Composition and I am pursing this field professionally. Recently I won the 2015 Matthew Schellhorn Prize for Sacred Music Composition. As a singer and performer, I have performed with choirs such as the Choir of the Queen's College, Oxford, Mary Magdalen Oxford, Newman Consort, Ensemble 45, Schola Cantorum of Oxford, as well as a variety of chamber ensembles. During my second year of University I was President of the Queen's College Eglesfield Music Society, which saw great successes in public performances that I arranged and in which I performed.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a number of students in composition and music theory at GCSE and A-Level on a one-to-one basis, and my skills and experience with composition allow me to give particular guidance in this field. I am willing to give one-on-one lessons in composition and music theory, as these are often problematic areas for students throughout school, and my particular skill-set can enable students to achieve at a level that will stand them in good stead for University applications. I have experience tutoring in a number of practical disciplines within music, including Piano, Voice, Guitar and Clarinet. I am willing to coach students up to Grade 8 standard, as I achieved Distinctions in all my Grade 8 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is combining practical skills with theoretical knowledge of musicianship, in order to provide students with a way of approaching their studies in an industry-focussed manner. My compositional and practical skills have been tested in a number of professional settings, and this kind of insight is exactly the kind of knowledge that students require in order to be successful in their GCSE and A-Level exams. I offer a calm and intuitive approach, which allows students to develop their own ideas, with my guidance that will push them to achieve extremely highly in their public examinations. My extremely positive and creative attitude towards teaching comes from a sense of the true power and beauty that music is capable of achieving, and I intend to pass this inspiration on to my students.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Sarah and I live in my home town of Newark, Nottinghamshire. I'm an experienced English, Spanish and ESOL teacher who creates challenging, rewarding and interesting classes for her students.

Classes take place in Newark. However, I available to teach in Nottingham city centre on Thursdays and in Lincoln on Wednesdays.

I have just started a Master's degree in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Sheffield (currently ranked 7th in the UK for Linguistics and 1st for student satisfaction) with the view to continuing onto PhD.

I enjoy cycling and swimming as well as reading and learning about the world we live in.

Teaching Experience:

I've taught ESOL in a variety of settings including Spain, Ukraine, Myanmar and England- in private institutions, government agencies and the state education system. I can also speak the languages of the countries I have lived in (to varying degrees) so I understand what it is like to be a language learner. This is also perfect for the current demand of grammar knowledge required by the National Curriculum; as a grammarian I certainly know my stuff!

I also tutor reluctant readers and those that either need extra support outside school or extra stimulation.

I'm currently studying for a postgraduate qualification in Linguistics and have recently written thematic courses for the British Council for teenagers based on famous authors.

I am also able to tutor for IELTS, which is the examination required by many institutions for further and higher education for students who don't have English as a first language.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, it is important that you enjoy the classes and that you are inspired and motivated to take your learning outside the classroom and apply it to your daily lives. I will give you language that is useful to you and skills to make your language learning more effective.

I tailor the classes to engage and challenge you- based on how you learn, what your level is and what your language goals are. We will use a variety of real materials as well as books to help you learn different aspects of language.

I understand that some of you may not be able to afford the price that I charge. It is possible to arrange something, for example, joining with another student to make the classes more affordable for you. Bear in mind though, that the hourly price is per contact hour, it doesn't take into account all the other learning you will do outside the classroom with tasks that I set you, so you can ask for as little or as much study for yourself as you want.

Hope to see you soon!


I can set you as much homework as you want. If you don't have time to do any, you don't have to, this is your class, or I can set you mini- tasks that you can complete as you go about your daily life.

Practice makes perfect!

Personal Description:
I am British but have spent most of my life in Latin America. I resettled in the UK in 2015 and currently live in Birmingham. I hold a PhD in Ethnic and African Studies from a prestigious Brazilian university. In order to be accepted by the PhD programme, I had to demonstrate exceptional fluency in Portuguese, both written and oral. My BA in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (First/Hons) amply qualifies me to tutor in English literature.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring in Portuguese, English Language and Literature (GCSE, A-Level and Graduate) and English as a Second Language (ESOL) in Birmingham and nearby cities. I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Brazil for many years. I have also lectured in English and Translation at a Brazilian university.

Tutoring Approach:

I always attempt to establish a rapport with my students to keep them at ease, focussing on the positive before going on to point out areas where they could improve. I am aware that, especially when learning a foreign language, students can be extremely sensitive about making mistakes, so I use methods that are designed to be non-threatening and non-critical, but always constructive.

Personal Description:
I first discovered my passion for languages when I was at school learning French and German. I was lucky enough to be able to participate in both French and German exchange programmes. It was here that I recognized the opportunities that learning a language could open up for me, both personally and professionally. I have never lost this passion and followed it right through university and, later, my professional career. More recently, I have come to see how having language skills is a massive advantage in the job market, both in terms of employability and job satisfaction. I have been to some fantastic places, met some fantastic people and been rewarded for my hard work for all those years I was studying.
"This was the main reason I started tutoring. I want to help other people have all of those extraordinary experience I was lucky enough to have. Watching my students' progress gives me a feeling like no other, as I know I am helping them shape their future

Teaching Experience:

As well as a number of different TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) roles in the UK and Austria, I have regularly done Tutoring in addition to main occupation. Working with pupils of a variety of different ages from primary school to adult learners, I have developed courses and learning materials from scratch, as well as working within a set curriculum or helping with set homework. Whatever your requirements, I am happy to work around them.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to keep it as relaxed as possible, recognising that people learn at different speeds and in different ways. My general approach is to supply my tutees with everything they need to continue to learn outside the class room, and to see the results of their own hard work pay off. Most important is to instill a sense of fun into learning languages, and to show how doing so will benefit anyone, of any age.
