Personal Description:
Hi,

My name is Kerry and I have a Masters in Translation and Interpreting plus a BA in Modern European Languages (French, Spanish, Italian)

Can show certificates as proof as and when required.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching English as a foreign language (in an Italian High School)
I also have experience teaching GCSE French/Spanish in an English High School.

Tutoring Approach:

I like learning to be fun, otherwise it becomes a chore.
I find that it helps when learning a language if you can relate to what you're learning. For this reason, expect a lot of current affairs, current music, current films etc. to be included in the tutoring.
Obviously, curriculum specific work can be carried out too.

Personal Description:
An enthusiastic and out going Latin American Spanish teacher from Argentina with a passion for helping others improve their language skills! - Especially Spanish

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Spanish as a foreign language in Argentina and UK for a couple of years.
_________________________________
In addition to languages I also teach drama and free expression for beginners and would be actors. A great technique to learn if you want to build personal confidence in every aspect of life - from delivering business presentations to building personal friendships.

Tutoring Approach:

I design the classes depending on the student needs. Normally my classes include:
________________________________
Regular classes with a careful mix of 25% listening, 25% oral, 25% reading and 25% writing skills all of which can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of the student. The classes use a range of techniques and games and inevitably have special homework assignments!

Conversation classes: In these the student and I develop special themes (for college, work or just for fun!) and use those "themes" to help build grammar and vocabulary. The conversation classes are dynamic, full of games, and involve a little bit of acting - what better way to out your language skills into practice!

Special classes: In these we handle a wide range of "real life" activities, from watching a movie, going to the supermarket, visiting a park and learning how to tango!
________________________________
The lessons can range from an hour to a whole day - so the classes can fit around your social, school and business life. So now there is no excuse in not getting going!

Atrevete!

Personal Description:
Hi! My name's Ed. I read Classics at Cambridge before going on to train at the Bristol Old Vic. I'm now working as a professional actor in London.

I tutor in English, and all areas of Latin and Ancient Greek. If it's of interest, I particularly specialized in my finals papers on Homer, Virgil, Horace, and the evolution of tragedy.

Though I read Classics, a large chunk of my finals actually ended up being part of the English course - specifically tracing the origins of tragedy through to the present day. As an actor, too, I'm continually having to familiarize myself with new areas of literature, be it poetry, drama, or prose, with the advantage, I hope, of an extremely practical approach.

Teaching Experience:

Overall, I've found it best to keep a balance between tutoring English and Classics. I like to be teaching a range of things.

When moving to Bristol I was lucky enough to be offered a part-time teaching post with the Classics department at Clifton College. Over the two years I primarily taught A level language work in Greek and Latin, as well as coaching their prospective candidates for Oxford and Cambridge.

I've also done a lot of free-lancing in all sorts of areas for both English and Classics, tutoring Oxbridge applicants as well as students at both school and university level.

The work I've done with my tutees has varied widely. In Latin and Greek, I've assisted some specifically in translating set texts both at school and university level (I'm now very familiar with the OCR Latin syllabus); I've introduced others, who wished to explore beyond their prescribed syllabus, to new areas of literature; and with others I've worked on more wide-ranging ways to deepen literary analysis or approach translation.

I should probably add that my language work with school students has almost exclusively involved tackling the inadequacies of the confounded Cambridge Latin Course! This seems to be taught in virtually every school but seemingly never elects to teach grammar, which I find utterly bizarre. If you're a victim of this clueless course I'm more than happy to help!

In terms of English tuition, I've been fortunate enough to have a similarly broad range of tutees, at GCSE, A level, and university standard, though a high proportion have been Oxbridge candidates.

Some references from previous tutees below:

Naomi, A Level Latin and Greek (2013)

Ed,

Sorry it's so early but I just thought I'd let you know I got my Cambridge grades! Thank you so much for everything once again!

Neirin, Latin GCSE (2013)

Hello Ed. We are so delighted with Neirin's results, absolutely fabulous. And who would have thought - an A star in Latin! Thank you for all your effort and encouragement. He couldn't have done it without you. Enjoy the rest of the summer and good luck with the writing.

Katie, Oxbridge Ancient Greek (2013)

Ed's work with Katie has been completely outstanding. I think we were asking for something quite demanding, a combination of literature and language, with inspiration to boot, and he delivered it superbly. Katie was super-enthused by his approach. I think they both thoroughly enjoyed the classes (indeed from the sound of it I would have enjoyed them myself!) Ed has a combination of intellect, passion and (as far as I can judge) a real feel for the texts!

Zac, Scholarship Latin (2014)

Ed has been tutoring our 11 year old for Latin scholarship papers. In 5 sessions he has taken him to a new level and has totally inspired him! We can't recommend him highly enough!...

Hiya Ed,

Thanks for the email ... got an A* in Philosophy and A's in Latin and English.

Thank you very much for all your help, couldn't have got the A without your tutoring.

Hope all goes well for you at theatre school and you're enjoying the summer.

Best wishes,

Sophie.


You're also welcome to get in touch with the Head of Classics at Clifton College, Mr Huntington, who employed me at the school between 2009 and 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it's impossible to pin down a sure-fire method of effective tutoring for any given person. People are different, and different methods work with different people.

That said, I am a firm believer that you cannot simply speak at someone. Learning has to be an active process, and I think there has to be involvement from both sides for things to sink in. In this light, I do try to make things enjoyable, and also to limit shortcuts; I'm of the view that it's far better to invest the time in getting firmly to grips with a subject, be it an instance of grammar or literary concept. In the long run that is a shortcut in itself.

Personal Description:
I am an honours graduate of computer science and electronics. I spent 17 years in corporate management before becoming self employed as, among other things, a freelance lecturer. I am a professional life coach and tutor for enjoyment.

Please note, I will generally add a call out fee to the tuition fee shown, which goes some way to covering petrol and time in getting to you and home again. This is usually 6 or less - I can confirm the final figure with you when I know approximately where you are.

Teaching Experience:

I taught freelance for Bedford College for 4 years, and have been tutoring for 9 years. I have qualifications in adult teaching, and my coaching qualification also helps a lot.

Tutoring Approach:

Effective tutoring is a wonderful opportunity because I can tailor what I do very specifically for the student I'm working with, and that's as much about their personality and stress levels as it is about the material we're working with. I believe in teaching understanding rather than isolated rules, it builds confidence and security and does not rely on memory. My sessions are as relaxed and fun-filled as I can possibly make them without sacrificing the learning task before us.

Personal Description:
Before becoming self employed Crofton worked as an industrial research scientist in Electronic materials and Bioelectronics at the Plessey Research centre, then as a Department head (Nanotechnology Sensors) with GEC Marconi in Materials Technology until 2001. He now works as a consultant to the DTI and EC in Medical/physics research during the day while devoting the after school hours to Private tuition. With his previous experience in interviewing prospective job applicants and sourcing funding for research and development Crofton is able to help candidates at A level to present their strengths in university applications and is well placed to discuss possible progression routes.

Teaching Experience:

Crofton offers tuition in Biology, Chemistry and Physics at AS and A2 levels and Maths at GCSE. He is a graduate of University College, Oxford where he gained his degree in Biochemistry in 1975. He has A levels in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths . Since becoming self employed he has worked for over 12 years as a private tutor in the sciences typically teaching 15 to 18 hours a week mainly after school hours.

Tutoring Approach:

Crofton tailors the tuition to the individual needs of the learner, using his extensive knowledge of the subject he patiently explains the fundamentals of processes, thereby helping the student to grasp more advanced concepts. Exam success has resulted for many students through intensive one-to-one sessions, especially through coaching in exam technique by systematically doing past papers followed by intensive analysis of answers with the mark scheme. It goes without saying that the learner's commitment to self-study and thorough revision is the key factor in achieving good results. For this reason the student should be prepared to commit to one hours home work each week.
Crofton has helped many students to achieve the grade they need for admission to their chosen University course, including helping many students into medical and veterinary College where A grades in Chemistry are mandatory. He is experienced in the syllabus of all the major exam boards including OCR, Edexcel and AQA. Many students start private tuition after having been disappointed with their AS results and stay on through to their A2 exams, often improving their grades by two or three places. This works well on the basis of one hour's tuition a week and approximately one hour's homework.

Personal Description:
Stafford resident currently working in a Midlands sixth-form college providing language training to 16-19 year-olds. Professional, a good listener and able to get the best out of my students. I have excellent results from my current students and wish to harness my knowledge again into the field of private tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages for over twenty years to students of wide ranging levels (Beginners to A2 Level). A lot of my recent work has been with sixth-form students across the region but prior to that I worked with adults at many establishments on a more group basis. Equally, I have vast experience of working within businesses, providing language tuition at all levels. My teaching has been diverse and very interesting and I always relish a new challenge.

Tutoring Approach:

A tutor has to be able to focus on the individual needs of the student and make a learning session both varied and interesting. He or she must keep up-to-date with modern learning methods and changes in the curriculum. I am able to tailor my sessions according to the particular needs of the individual and be flexible at any time.

I live in Darlington. I enjoy teaching and enjoy watching students achieve and progress. I feel as a practising teacher I can give students real and useful advice and support.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently in full time employment teaching 11-18 year olds.Within the school Geography is one of the most successful departments. I have been teaching for the last nine years and I am head of achievement (assistant head)I am currently teaching AQA to GCSE and AQA to A level students.I have marked external exams for AQA for the past five this has given me a real insight into exam technique something I am keen to pass onto students. Students would be able to get extra teaching materials from me as well as the added benefits from past exam papers and mark schemes. This will establish exactly what to do to improve grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I often find I need to speak to the student first to establish areas of the subject they find difficult and work on those. Also exam practice is very important for students who want to achieve. I can give half an hour - two hour sessions.
When I tutor online it is done via email as I find skype sessions are wasteful of precious time by the time you read out questions and responses. Using email allows me to give the questions and then offer detailed feedback to the student. Students really enjoy this method as they can complete the work when it suits them.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified maths teacher currently in my fifth year teaching at an outstanding school in Grays, Essex.

Tutoring Approach:

Working in an outstanding secondary school provides me with the experience of working with large classes and small groups. The benefits of one-to-one tuition are clear as each student receives more dedicated time and attention with the lesson tailored to their specific weaknesses.

I believe a strong grasp of methodology is the key to gaining a deeper understanding of maths and far outweighs just getting specific questions 'right'.

Personal Description:
I've recently returned from New Zealand where I spent a year working in a prestigious secondary school. This year fueled my desire to teach. I've completed a BSc in Sport & Exercise Sciences and I'm currently studying part time at masters level. I will start a PGCE in September 2016 and become a PE teacher upon completion.

I want to tutor because it is a great way to gain experience whilst earning some money to pay my way through my studies. I'd also like to help those in a similar situation as I once was, I got little support from my PE teacher during A levels as he focused on the better performers rather than those looking to excel academically. I wasn't able to afford a tutor and got no other help, this led to me failing to achieve my target grade. I'd like to help people achieve their aims and not feel disappointed (and in my case anxious that I might not get into uni) like I did.

My particular area of expertise is the physiology of sport, I've always been fascinated with anatomy and the way the body works. I've gained a lot of experience working in schools and tutoring in recent years and, as such, feel confident in tutoring all areas of PE at GCSE and A level.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching in all tiers of the educational system. This ranges from coaching and PPA cover in primary schools to work and placements in secondary and SEN schools. I also have experience of providing sports science support to semi-professional and university athletes.

I have also gained a lot of one to one tutoring experience within schools and homes helping tutees, including some that had previously failed, to pass at both GCSE and A level.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't think you can describe my approach in one specific way. I think, like all teaching, tutors should adapt the way they teach dependant on the individuals learning style and needs. Therefore the only word I could use is flexible.

Personal Description:
My name is Karan, I am a 22 year old medical student entering my fifth year of med school. Teaching is an important part of my future profession and so I have been tutoring since the age of 17. Alongside med school I am also a keen rugby player and play for my University Ruby team.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry at a GCSE and an A-level standard for three years. During my time as an A-level student I studied six A-levels at once (double the standard amount) and so understand the effort required to achieve a high grade.

Tutoring Approach:

I do not mind taking a relaxed approach to tuition so long as the student is reaching their objectives for the lesson set. If a student is failing to achieve what they are capable of than I feel it is my duty as a tutor to push them that much harder.

In order to be an A-star student, you need an A-star understanding of your subject. To gain such an understanding consistency and discpline in how you approach your work is required. I, as a tutor, aim to give my students these prerequisites for success.

Personal Description:
I'm a graduate of the University of Edinburgh's MA (Hons) Latin degree. I've got a working background in arts management and administration, but I'm hoping to utilise my degree to encourage prospective Latinists to give the subject a go!

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in Latin and English Literature five years ago, both for beginners and up to GCSE. I currently have a tutee learning beginner's Latin. While at university I tutored other students in beginner's Latin and Classical Civilisation. I've also spent the past few years providing training for adults in the workplace, so I'm happy to tutor adult learners (both beginners and experienced) as well.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer tutoring using practical methods - such as discussions and games - rather than just learning by rote. However, I adapt my tutor style based on what the tutee requires. I've been trained in a variety of methods to engage young and adult learners, and will try out several to see what suits the tutee best. For more experienced learners, such as A-Level / Advanced Higher candidates, I will identify which areas of the subject (vocabulary, grammar, literature) need most tuition, and decide with the tutee which to focus upon. I am happy to tutor individuals or in small groups (in which case a discounted rate can be agreed upon.)

Personal Description:
School year 15/16 reflection: This was a fantastic year, as I saw all five of my students succeed, either achieving their grade or even better, exceeding it. Also well done to one student that was really struggling with her entrance exams but has passed and is now one step closer to becoming a teacher! I have had some great feedback and learnt many new learning techniques which will enable me to have an even better 16/17 year! Apply now for the coming year!

Hello!! Are you looking for an intensive revision session before a daunting exam? Or are you looking for long term assistance through an academic year? If so then look no further! I am currently studying Medicine at the University of Liverpool, having already achieved a first class honours degree in Biomedical Science. This interest in Science stems from three A levels (grades A's and B's) in Biology, Chemistry and Maths with all my exams passed at GCSE level. This passion for life sciences has enabled me to gain knowledge in various areas of science and I am offering to tutor you/your child to help achieve similar goals. Studying medicine allows me to keep up with ever changing research whilst maintaining the basics learnt throughout school. Aside from my academic life, I am a keen rugby player, play the piano and socialise with friends.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my university life it has always been encouraged to teach our peers through case based learning and PowerPoint presentations. Therefore I have taught to individuals, but also to small groups and even whole classrooms. On the other end of the scale, I have tutored Maths to a year 6 pupil that was struggling to make the grades in this one subject, and by the end of the year she was competing with top of the class. I have also taught English in Asia to students aged 4-18. I am sure you will agree that this is a diverse range of experience but makes me confident that I could be a suitable candidate for you or someone you wish to be tutored. I have also been part of a University society which aids in teaching medicine to younger people hoping to take such a career path later on in life.

Tutoring Approach:

Having tutored people as young as key stage 2, I am able to adapt to the needs of the Tutee and instead of enforcing my learning techniques upon a person; I gauge the needs and learning styles of the individual which allows them to develop their own skills whilst trying new ones. Personally, I like the use of short, concise notes (flash card style) and colourful posters which enable me to visualise my notes in an exam. However, I understand this is not suitable for all people and would be more than happy for tutee's to make extensive notes. Having performed research and undertaking multiple entrance exams (GAMSAT, UKCAT) I have learnt to quick read which I can also teach. I can also help with University style interviews (especially medicine) if necessary. My teaching style is very informal (within reason) as I believe that strict lessons can often be counterproductive.

Education is both intellectually and morally intertwined with self- esteem and discipline. My goal is to focus on each student's abilities and help him/her grow to their full potential!

Teaching Experience:

I am a Greek native speaker and I teach Greek because Greek history and language are my great passions.
In parallel, having a PhD in Biology, gives me the opportunity to teach and supervise students of all ages and educational backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

As a biology and Earth science teacher, I can richly enhance pupils' understanding of themselves and the world around them, and set them up to succeed in a diverse range of important careers. As a Greek language tutor, I love working with children of any age as well as with adults of any age.

Personal Description:
I am a studious and hardworking student currently in Year 12. I am undertaking 5 A Level Subjects; Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History and Physics and attend Sir Thomas Rich's Grammar School in Gloucester. My hobbies include music (in which I play Baritone, Piano, Saxophone and some percussion), basketball and snooker.

I am academically minded and came out of GCSE's with all A*'s. In the future, I am looking to study economics at University in the United States.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at the local KUMON maths and English centre. I work a few hours each week and my job involves giving students guidance on how to complete maths and English problems. My specialty is maths and I am one of the most advanced mathematicians in the tutoring staff. I have privately tutored my sister in maths in preparation for the 11+ and now that she is in year 7, I continue to assist her with mathematics and the other subjects which she is taking.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be tailored to the needs of individuals. For example, a student who is highly capable will take a more laid back approach in which I will try to get the student to work out mathematical concepts, or physical concepts on their own. However, if a student is struggling with a particular topic, then I will take a more guiding role and assist the student in a more direct way.

Fortunately, I have received a huge amount of information regarding exam technique; I know all of the tricks which come up in Maths Exams having completed a huge amount of past papers. In addition, I can teach study skills to help my students achieve the very best results available.

I believe that my job as a tutor is not to force principles on students as law, but for them to understand how the principles have been derived. If you can understand where something has come from, it makes it much easier to remember and apply when it comes to an exam.

Evidence suggests that teaching is much more effective when a student can connect with their teacher. Thus, I believe that I would be an ideal tutor because I will be more able to empathise with the student. Moreover, since I am still in full time education, my hours will closely align to students and I will be available at all times online in order to assist with any difficulties a student is facing.
