Personal Description:
I am 53, with a B.Sc. in theoretical physics and an M.Sc. in quantum field theory (with some astrophysics), both from Imperial College, London. I have spent some years working in IT, but maths and physics are the subjects I love, and I enjoy teaching them. I'm familiar with all mathematics (including further maths) and physics to beyond A level standard and theoretical physics to university graduate level.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught chess at school.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to teach the concepts clearly. Once the student has
the fundamental concepts straight then academic attainment follows naturally.

Many pupils struggle with maths and physics because of poor explanations
of the concepts involved. Schools often rely on rote memorisation and cramming, as
alternative to understanding. My approach is to explain the derivation of
material. A successful technique is to work through the pupil's choice of homework
or revision problem exercises or past exam papers, showing how each exercise can
be solved. This way the tutoring is targeted at exactly those areas that require
help and is also most directly relevant to achieving exam success.

All curricula and exam boards covered.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • 11+ (secondary) (30 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a native Spanish speaker. I am Dr. of Chemistry and I was a professor in the Havana University, Cuba, for 30 years; during that time I was a head of Physical-Chemistry Department for 10 years and Vice Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry for 7 years.

Personal Description:
Qualified and experienced EFL specialist. I've been teaching English as a Foreign or Additional Language for 7 years to a wide age range and for a variety of specialist purposes.

I've been teaching in China for the last 3 years and will move back to the UK in July. I'm looking to start tutoring again from August so please get in touch if your looking for a tutor to start around then.

I'm a calm, organised and friendly person. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy learning English and to see the progress they are making.

I'm very interested in using technology in learning and for students who like learning with screens I will integrate other websites and apps into their homework and preparation.

I learned French in school and I'm continuing learning Chinese. I remember my language learning experience in school and in China, I know what a struggle it is to understand new grammar rules and how difficult it can be some weeks to make time to practice. I try to create an enjoyable and supportive environment in lessons so it is not stressful to make mistakes and students don't leave feeling tired out by learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught :
English in south China for 3 years (2013-2016)
English as a Foreign/Additional Language for 7 years (2009 - present)
students preparing for IELTS and PTE
students writing dissertations and theses
beginner English speakers and native speakers
students from 7 years old up to retired grandparents
English for Business, Medicine and Engineering
preparation for driving theory and food safety tests

Tutoring Approach:

I like to incorporate games, puzzles and challenges along with the content to help you engage with and better understand how to use the language. I'm very adaptable and will plan lessons based on what you want to achieve and how you like to learn.

For students getting ready for a test I can prepare a course of lessons with exam specific practice and a focus on the areas that most concern you.

For primary age students I have a variety of fun and engaging activities that get them excited about joining in lessons and learning English.

For university students I can give tailored lessons to help with essay, paragraph and sentence structure. I can also review grammar applied to the context of your subject to help you in your academic writing.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old Masters student taking a career break from advertising to study full time in an area I am passionate about - International Development, at SOAS in London. I previously graduated from the University of Manchester in 2010, where I studied French and Spanish as a Joint Honours, and received a 2:1 with a Distinction in spoken Spanish. I have lived and worked full time in Paris and Argentina for 1 year as a part of my degree. I also studied Portuguese for 2 years at University and received a High First at Intermediate level. I love languages and take great pleasure in passing on this enthusiasm to others!

Teaching Experience:

-I was a teacher's assistant for the head of the French department at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys in June 2010. I assisted in teaching Years 7 and Upper Six, and all years in between with class sizes ranging from 6 to 32. I attended 12 hours of training on behavioral management, how to engage pupils and effective teaching prior to this placement which prepared me well.
-I informally taught English as a foreign language to French, Spanish and Portuguese adults on a weekly basis for 2 years whilst studying languages at university, as language exchanges.
-I have tutored Spanish and Chemistry GCSE students through this site with positive results, references available on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a professional, friendly tutor with great enthusiasm for learning. Can tutor to boost student's level, or help to prepare for exam deadlines. For GCSEs, A-Levels, University exams or personal deadlines, we can work out a learning plan to fit the student's requirements. Usual areas to work on are reading/writing/listening/speaking skills. I have my own material (films, tv clips, music) to supplement the student's own if needed for languages.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Lucy

View Tania's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a doctor in Social Anthropology with an interest in education, philosophy, politics, religion, science, culture, health and illness. I gained my PhD in Medical Anthropology about three years ago from the University of Edinburgh, where I have also taught undergraduate students. I have since then worked as a researcher, firstly as a consultant for international organisations on projects on chronic malnutrition in developing countries and most recently as a post-doctoral researcher and also academic teacher for the University of Oxford. I worked in both department of Primary Health Care and Social Anthropology. I currently live in Wokingham and I am planning to move to Guernsey with my husband at the beginning of December.

Teaching Experience:

I always used to help my school classmates with their homework and exams, especially those with learning difficulties. During my final year at university I started giving Italian private lessons to help me financially and I really enjoyed the experience. During my doctorate degree I had the opportunity to teach undergraduate students and also attend teaching training courses to improve my teaching skills. During the final year I started tutoring A level students in Spanish, Psychology and Sociology and they all passed their exams with very high marks. I also supported MSc and PhD students with their thesis both in Psychology and Marketing. During my last post at the University of Oxford I had the opportunity again to teach undergraduate students and attended a 'Developing Learning and Teaching programme' in order to qualify as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very much based on bringing forth the full potential of the student. In essence is based on finding the right balance between structure and meeting the personal needs of the student. Thus, giving the right importance to knowledge but, at the same time, also to raising the student's confidence and interest on the subject.

I am a retired lecturer from Sri Lanka, and I have been teaching Economics, Business Studies and marketing in Schools (Edexcel Specifications), Academic levels and professional levels in Sri Lanka.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 15 years of teaching experience (Lecturing). The theories what I have studied and have been teaching is universal. When I teach any subjects mentioned above, I always quote UK examples and also world examples and refers to UK case studies where its appropriate. Over the past few years I have prepared many students successfully in Economics and business studies In AQA, Ed excel and OCR specifications. In any syllabus specification the theories are same,
Home visits are possible with in 15 miles from SM6 area and can consider other areas with prior negotiations.

Tutoring Approach:

I follow the syllabus provided by the exam board, to teach each topic. Then I go through past papers, explain how to answer the questions. I expect students to do the papers at home and give to me for marking. I go through their answers and explain how to answer the questions. My teaching approach is, first I assess the student's current knowledge regarding the subject and thereafter I pitch accordingly. I use simple language and current examples in explaining the theories and concepts. Also I give and discuss past papers with the student and guide them in the correct method in answering a question. I give home work from selected past papers. I prepare a simplified handout for every lesson and this handout is the final reading material for the examination. Sometimes I dictate short notes during the lesson and my teaching sessions are interactive, where the students are encouraged to ask questions and express their current knowledge about the subject. At present there are number of satisfied students. I am unable to disclose their identities with out prior permission from them. My first lesson is free of charge. So that the student will have a chance to judge my approaches to teaching, subject knowledge, my mannerism etc.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified, UK trained teacher and an experienced tutor with proven track record in results and ability to successfully personalise my students' learning, based on their individual circumstances and preferences, whether it is learning Russian or Dutch for business, leisure and travelling or helping children develop their English and Maths skills further.

I can provide all levels of support: private language lessons for adults, document translations to or from Russian and Dutch, language tutoring of bilingual children/teens and fast-track language introduction/begginers courses. In addition, I have a particularly wide knowledge of providing general Russian/Dutch teaching for adults travelling to Russia, including countries of former USSR, where Russian is still one of the official languages, Belgium or the Netherlands, for work or family reasons.

I have completed a BA (Hons) degree in education (graduated with First Class Honours), a Postgraduate teacher training course (PGCE) and, most recently, a Masters degree in Education (MEd), specialising in teaching of gifted and talented pupils. I actively teach in British schools, thus this experience enables me to understand and apply current, most up-to date, teaching techniques and assists me in making the learning experience of my students engaging, productive and stimulating.

I am extremely flexible and reliable and I appreciate the importance of meeting the requirements of each one of my students in a shortest time possible. Therefore, I usually meet my prospective students for a free and totally informal chat, prior to agreeing to a programme of study. This allows me to assess your individual needs and design the best language training tuition program.

My rates are slightly higher than those of other tutors in the area, however with coming to me you get a fully qualified and experienced UK trained teacher, with outstanding subject knowledge and a passion for teaching. I will make sure you get the most out of your language progress as quickly as possible and guarantee that investing into my expertise will pay off!

Personal Description:
Born in Edinburgh, I was raised in India and then Africa, before returning to the UK. Having lived in London and South East England since then, our family moved to the Scottish Highlands in 2012, primarily to raise our children in a less chaotic and more natural environment. We've had no regrets at all...and our various dogs and cats are similarly happy with the move!

I have always been passionate about English, from the weekly spelling tests and grammar exercises of primary school to the privilege of being taught at A Level by Tolkien's grandson. His vibrant, interactive approach shaped my ongoing learning and fired my imagination. After leaving Edinburgh University with a Masters in English Language and Literature, I went on to take a TEFL qualification and used this when travelling abroad in Turkey and throughout the Caribbean. I am delighted that I continue to work in the area of EAL with overseas students in British schools, and that technology has allowed me to work with individuals in their home countries, via Skype.

My love of English directed my career, working first at the Royal Shakespeare Company before becoming an independent theatre producer in London, and a theatre advertising executive on accounts such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' and Cameron Mackintosh's 'Les Miserables'.

In 2008, my partner and I began the home education of our two children at primary stage. It was both challenging and inspirational and the experiences and knowledge I gained during those years - not purely academic, but also the different ways and methods of learning, the different developmental stages of children, the different learning styles of children - continue to inform my present day tutoring.

While home educating, and with my love of theatre, I founded an educational theatre group, Active Arts, with Margo Gunn, a teacher and director at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. We worked with a wide age range of home educated and mainstream school children, providing workshops on various Shakespeare plays including 'Midsummer Night's Dream', 'The Tempest' and 'Romeo & Juliet'. Workshops were also designed specifically in support of GCSE/IGCSE work. As passionate advocates of Shakespeare, our approach was active and energetic, lifting Shakespeare off the page and introducing his plays, his language and his theatricality in an engaging and tangible manner. I was thrilled to be able to resurrect this work in the Highlands, initially at a local primary school, conducting 4 workshops for Primary 4-Primary 7, resulting in workshop presentations of 'The Tempest' and 'Macbeth'.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to home educating my two children and running Active Arts, my personal and professional lives led me into private tutoring and I have been a private tutor in English Language and Literature since 2009, working alongside children and young people from age 5 upwards, whether on general literacy issues, EAL or focusing specifically on exam work, from SATS, Nationals and GCSEs, through to A Levels, Highers and beyond. Tutees have been those in mainstream state schools, leading UK private schools and home education, following the English and Scottish curriculums, as well as IGCSEs with providers including Cambridge, OOL and Edexcel.

A number of my tutees have challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Tourette's and dyslexia, and the combination of experience, research and support courses have built my knowledge and understanding in these areas.

While I am registered with tutoring agencies, many of my tutees come via personal recommendation and I was delighted that tutees I had worked with in England chose to continue working with me via Skype after our move to Scotland.

Critically, I am PVG checked, and would be happy to provide evidence of this, together with references and qualification documentation.

Tutoring Approach:

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
My approach is not one of 'dip in and out' for an hour, or 'one size fits all', but of creating a relaxed, enjoyable, constructive atmosphere and building a relationship within which the young person's potential can be maximised, against a tailored, individual approach. While texts and challenges might be shared by various tutees, learning styles, atmospheres for learning, methods for learning, will always be different.
As importantly, my approach places great value on the parents, their involvement and their right and need for clear, ongoing and comprehensive communication. As such, I am often in regular contact with both my tutees and their parents, should they require it, outside of tutorials.

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited."
Plutarch

If you're looking for a desk-based tutor, one who does all the talking and expects your child to just sit and listen, I am not the right person for you.

If you're looking for someone to ignite a love of English, to build confidence, to be energetic, to make learning enjoyable, active, off the page, accessible, then, here I am!

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
For many young people with whom I work, English and everything to do with it - their texts, their homework, punctuation, close reading, writing an essay - is a minefield. Often, what holds them back is a mixture of low confidence, fear of getting it wrong, and simply not having grasped the 'map' of how to 'do it'.

One of my main motivations, is to make English accessible; to take away the fear factor, to provide clear and simple structures, to grasp some key exam techniques, to demystify the exam paper, to clarify what the heck the exam paper is testing them on; to remind tutees that they have, naturally, learned one of the most difficult languages in the world and are fully capable of expressing themselves on paper, under pressure and against time.

However whimsical it may sound, as with many things in life, self-belief and understanding are powerful tools for success.


MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
The demand for private tutoring is growing exponentially. As The Telegraph reported in 2012, "more than a quarter of parents use private tutoring to supplement their children's education", spending "6bn a year in the UK." A double page spread in Femail, February 2015, states research that almost 1 in 4 children are now privately tutored, with pupils at private schools almost twice as likely to have private tutoring than those from state schools. Whatever explanation there is for this rise, cost to parents remains an obvious barrier to its provision.

I am, of course, a 'business', but I also firmly believe that access to tutoring should be made as wide as possible; education is a right and not a privilege. As such, while I have a standard rate for 1-1 tutoring, I am also very happy to discuss your requirements with you and to look at options available, such as small group tutoring where the cost per head can be significantly reduced.

Please do take the opportunity of discussing your requirements with me, rather than potentially losing the opportunity of providing tutorial support for your child.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!
My name is Tanguy, I come from Southern France and live in London, where I write my PhD thesis (English). I am deeply committed to teaching and learning. I enjoy facing up to new challenges. I am a hard-working person, with a zest of originality to make it interesting!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked (and mostly taught) in many different countries so far, which has been very profitable for my teaching practice.
I began as a French language assistant in 2006-2007 in a secondary school in South London.
Two years later, during my MA in Montpellier, I became a tutor at the department of English of my home university.
I went to the US in late 2009 to be a French language instructor at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I taught a class of 20 beginners (aged 18 to 25) on a daily basis, which was extremely motivating. A few months later, I crossed the border and offered one-to-one tuition in Montreal, Canada.
In London since 2010, I achieved the status of Associate Practitioner delivered by the Higher Education Academy in February 2014. This qualification is in line with the UKPSF standards for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.
I am now teaching at Goldsmiths on the seminar 'Approaches to Text' (Department of English).

Tutoring Approach:

The teaching I offer is tailored to your specific needs. I try to relate to your own interest to facilitate the learning process. My teaching method is fundamentally active: we will work towards the goal that you will have determined beforehand through a constant engagement with the language on your part. Lat but not least, I try to make my teaching fun whenever I can!

Personal Description:
I am a certified teacher of Italian, with a strong passion and enthusiasm for my work. I believe that languages are a powerful tool to access new information, meet different kinds of people and broaden our minds. I have always been passionate about foreign languages and now I'm committed to spreading the love for my first language to people from all over the world.

Teaching Experience:

I have over four years teaching experience. I began teaching Italian to primary and secondary school children. I helped them gain the necessary language skills to study school subjects in Italian and be at the same level as their peers.
In 2014, I started teaching Italian online to adults. I use Skype, Power Point presentations and a shared board to create an interactive learning environment for my students. Thanks to my lessons, one of my students was able to move to Italy and start a new job.
Additionally, I've collaborated with local language schools and taught English and Italian in the classroom to business people. After attending my courses, my students were able to pass their final exams and use their acquired foreign language in the workplace.

Tutoring Approach:

I go beyond the traditional grammar rules explanations and I tend focus on communication. I believe in the importance of interacting and in reaching fluency. No matter how many mistakes you make. Mistakes are just a part of the learning process: if you don't make them, it means you're not trying, and if you're not trying, you're not even learning.
My students' needs are at the core of my lessons. Every class will be tailored according to your abilities and skills and, of course, if you have any special request...feel free to ask. My purpose is to be here for you.

Personal Description:
My name is Rebecca and I am an enthusiastic and hardworking teacher. I am 23 years old and believe that my friendly, patient approach to teaching allows children to reach their full potential. I am flexible and I will use a variety of teaching methods to help with English and Maths at a primary level.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching across the primary age groups and I have experience of working in one-to-one situations in a classroom. I have planned for all abilities and I have ensured that my work is differentiated according to each child's varying needs; this will reflect in my tutoring. During my classroom teaching experience, I have gained ideas for different techniques to help children with their English and Maths; this will again reflect in my tutoring. For example, I often believe that a practical approach helps significantly with Maths and will incorporate this into my tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and patient individual whose tutoring will be tailored to my tutee's needs. I believe that a calm approach is essential and that each tutee learns in their own unique ways; therefore I will find a way to help based on how the tutee learns best. I am very approachable and encouraging and will build a positive environment for the tutee to learn to the best of their ability.

Personal Description:
I am a 24-year-old, native speaker and fully-qualified teacher of French, based in Lancaster.
I completed my PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) in French with German in 2016, gaining Qualified Teacher Status, and I have experience of one-to-one tutoring in French and English as a foreign language, to children, students and adults.
I am a bilingual speaker of French and English and have lived, studied and worked in both England and France.

Teaching Experience:

- Currently tutoring and have previously tutored students of different ages and abilities in French and English as a foreign language
- Taught French at Key Stages 3 and 4 in two secondary schools over the course of last year
- Worked as an English Language Assistant in two colleges in France, teaching English to 15-21 year olds, in 2012-2013

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the needs and wishes of my students - whether you would prefer conversational practice with a native speaker, a more academic approach to prepare for exams, or learning French from scratch - it's up to you! I am friendly, patient and enthusiastic, and keen to help you develop your confidence and make progress.

In the first session I will gauge your level through conversation and some generic exercises, and discuss what you wish to focus on in upcoming lessons. From there, we will decide on topics and focus points together from one session to the next, with each session building on the previous one, so that you get exactly what you want out of the sessions and feel like you are making progress in the right areas, whether that be grammar points, speaking, or any other area.

Personal Description:
I am nineteen years old, entering my second year of a BA(H) degree in Literature at University of Highlands and Islands, Perth College campus. I am extremely enthusiastic, particularly in English, but also in Mathematics. I intend to do a Masters at the end of my course, and then move on to a post-graduate in Secondary School Teaching to become an English teacher. I trained in Irish dance for 7 years and have been a member of Girl-Guiding Scotland for 15 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have 5 years experience working with children and teenagers and taught Irish dance for two years. I am an enthusiastic teacher and can communicate coherently both verbally and in writing. I have always found aiding someone's learning very rewarding, especially when they achieve their desired results.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to assess my approach on an individual basis, however ideally, I would spend the time approaching both exam content and folio work for those to whom it is applicable and chronologically through the curriculum, for those whom it is not.
