Personal Description:
I am 50 years old and live in Northern Ireland after over a decade living and teaching English in Italy.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English in Italy and Italian in Northern Ireland. During my time in Italy, I taught English privately on a daily basis, accumulating well over 1,000 teaching hours. I also taught for an academic year at a local high school. My experience includes all ages from primary school to retirees, and from professionals to university undergraduates. Teaching English to migrant workers brought me into contact with many different people from Eastern European countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring my lessons to the individual or group that I am teaching. Everyone starts with different levels and abilities. I see it as my job to home in on areas that need attention and make them my focus using conversation and exercises. I like to make sure my students understand the grammar well and also concentrate on pronunciation.

Personal Description:
I think i am able to inspire and make the lessons instructive but also fun. I think variety of pace and changes in activity ensure good progress and keep students attentive and motivated. Lots of positive encouragement and feedback on a regular basis and students should also be encouraged to feedback on their own learning and any difficulties they may have. I think I have a good sense of humour and this helps me to keep the lesson dynamic and lively and make the lessons memorable.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught over the last 27 years and my teaching has included several subjects: English as a foreign language and English (including English as a foreign language) and I have also taught primary Maths and the piano up to grade 4 . I have taught History and French at all levels and Geography and Biology up to National 5 level ( lower level) I have also taught art and design up to university level and currently provide art classes for children in my home every week.

Tutoring Approach:

I think learning takes place when students feel free to give it a go and make mistakes without any fear of negative remarks from the teacher. Good teaching is about establishing a relationship of trust with the student and customising the lessons to the needs of the pupil. A sense of humour is essential to help overcome obstacles and keep a positive atmosphere. Students should be encouraged to give regular feedback about the lessons.They should be encouraged to teach back to the teacher to demonstrate understanding and proper grading of the work should increasingly develop the students' confidence. Lessons are well organised in advance but also allow for flexibility in approach to individual students

Personal Description:
I am currently studying Mathematics at Aberdeen University, and looking to make a little bit of extra money to help support my studies. I am very enthusiastic about maths and physics, something which I try to pass on to my tutees. I am looking to tutor standard grade, higher and advanced higher maths and physics and also advanced higher applied maths (mechanics) which is not listed on the site. I would also be willing to teach the English equivalents: GCSE, AS, and A level maths, further maths and physics, should anyone be interested. I am willing to travel or to tutor from my own flat (Old Aberdeen, near the University), whichever is more convenient for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2008. Although I could not list it on this site I would also be very interested in tutoring advanced higher mechanics. This is a subject which I actually taught myself in sixth year because my school was unable to provide the course. Having taught myself from a textbook I achieved an A grade in the exam. The skills I gained from this include the ability to set appropriate work, to decide which areas of the course need emphasis for the exam, and the ability to summarise the key outcomes from each topic.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to carefully go over what has been covered in class in order to find any areas of difficulty and then to spend time working through these areas and to build understanding and confidence to the point where the tutee can answer questions on the topic with ease. Moving through the coursework in this way ensures no gaps in course knowledge. In the lead up to exams and tests most of the time would be spent on revision and past papers, stopping to go over again any uncertainties. I would usually obtain from SQA the course specifications which detail each learning outcome, that is, what the student is expected to know. This gives me the ability to check through, systematically, every area which the tutee could possibly be tested on and thus ensuring that the tutee is fully prepared for the exams.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor with first class honours in Modern and Medieval Languages and Literature from Cambridge University. I am also a working actor with six years of professional experience throughout theatre (Shakespeare's Globe, Edinburgh Royal Lyceum, Northern Stage, Southwark Playhouse), television (BBC, ITV, Sky) and radio (Radio 4).
I also have 5 A-Levels at A grade, 10 GCSEs (9 A*s - for my English Literature GCSE I received the top mark in the country - and 1 A).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a committed tutor for a number of years now, dedicated to enabling others. Additionally as an Educational Practitioner with the Globe Theatre, Propeller Theatre Company and as a freelance Workshop Leader, working with 8-18 year olds (and often international students who speak no English!) I have learned first hand the power of facilitating learning in others.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very keen to tailor my tuition to the specific needs of the tutee ie. try to identify subject areas in which they themselves felt under-confident. If a "general" improvement is sought then of course I would structure the sessions around what I felt would be most useful; as a jobbing actor I am able to thoroughly prepare each lesson plan around the needs of the individual, and insodoing, to maximise the efficiency of the time "in the classroom"! I myself was tutored outside of school during my adolescence, so know what a tiresome experience external tuition can sometimes be, especially on top of an increasingly demanding schedule within school, so would be keen to make this experience as harmless, instructive and hopefully fun for the tutee as possible! It is something I am deeply passionate about.

Personal Description:
I am the Head of Religious Studies and I have been teaching for eight years on a full-time basis with an abundance of experience relating to GCSE and A-Level Religious Studies. I have delivered four of the A-Level modules offered by CCEA up to A2 Level (Luke's Gospel, Celtic Church, Ethics and Old Testament). All of the students I have tutored have succeeded in achieving A*- B grades at both GCSE and A Level. I can tutor the A-Level modules stated above along with a range of GCSE modules. I am also a Senior Examiner for the AQA exam board.

Teaching Experience:

Our Lady and St. Patrick's College Knock, Kingsway Gardens, Belfast
Full-time (Temporary) Teacher of Religious Studies (2 years)

St. Mary's Christian Brothers' Grammar School, Belfast
Full-time (Permanent) Head of Religious Studies (Current employment)

Tutoring Approach:

I often hold revision classes for small groups of students studying GCSE and A-Level R.E. I tend to work out the revision technique that suits the child best and create mind-maps to faciliate student learning. I have devised my own revision booklets with the key facts on each topic summarised in a manageable way. I work through past paper questions with the students and go through the mark scheme with them to highlight the strengths and areas for development in their work.

Personal Description:
After qualifying as a teacher, following a degree in Psychology at Loughborough University and a P.G.C.E. at Nottingham Trent, I completed my QTS at a small primary school in East Sussex.
In 2004, I moved to Spain to pursue my passion of living and working in a foreign country and I taught in a British school teaching the National Curriculum to a mixture of English and non-English speaking children.
Returning to the UK in 2008, I lived near Kingston-Upon-Thames and worked at Holy Cross Prep. School.
Since leaving a full time teaching job to have children, I have been working as a private tutor.

Teaching Experience:

At Firle C. of E. School I taught a mixed class of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Although challenging, it showed me the importance of teaching to the individual child's needs.
During my 3 years at Holy Cross Prep. School I was a Year 2 class teacher. There was a high level of expectation for the academic achievement of the children. In my final year, an (ISI) inspection was carried out and the school was deemed to be 'outstanding'.
Over the past 4 years, I have tutored a number of children in numeracy and literacy from year 1 to year 6.

Tutoring Approach:

I have found that a balance of structured work and fun, interactive, educational games, all based on a clear learning objective, leads to the best improvement in understanding.
There is no charge for the first lesson as I find this is a good opportunity to meet each other and to learn about the particular areas where the additional support is required.

Personal Description:
Hi

I have just finished a PhD in maths at Newcastle University so it goes without saying I'm enthusiastic about both maths and physics. On top of this I have a wide variety of interests, and this allows me to find ways of explaining things that the people I'm tutoring can relate to.

Teaching Experience:

While studying at Newcastle I've taken many tutorials for students taking courses in Maths. For the past 6 years I've also worked in a tutoring drop-in centre where any student at Newcastle University can come to ask maths questions. I've always enjoyed this work as over the course of a day I can be asked how to apply maths to many problems from mechanical engineering to fine arts!

I have also done a lot of private tuition of A-levels for all of the major examining boards. I have often got this work from referral of satisfied customers.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and friendly tutoring style.

I usually find students learn best by working through questions or examples, but I am also happy provide teaching of entire subjects from scratch. So if you're having trouble understand the material needed to pass an exam/assignment or wanting to learn about a subject from start to finish I will be able to help.

Subjects

Personal Description:
I am currently studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I love reading, writing and reading some more. I also enjoy sketching while listening to music. I am a frank person, have an straightforward approach to everything in life and like people to behave the same way with me (which always does not happen). I love to have a laugh, but don't worry, I can be serious when needed( for example, when teaching your children English and History).

Teaching Experience:

While I have never tutored for money, I have an extensive tutoring experience. I volunteered to teach illiterate students English as a part of a volunteering program from my high school in India and have been a part of that program for the past two years. I also used to tutor my two siblings in History, Geography and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that children learn best in a stress free environment. If they feel it is fun and challenging, they will be more willing to learn than if they feel it to be an obligation. English is an easy subject and children enjoy learning it, once they realize the joys that English has to offer. History can be challenging due to the vast amounts one has to learn by heart but steady habit of writing down answers to questions helps more than reading the material ten times. Other than that, History is a vastly interesting subject which helps us understand the workings of the present society and of course, knowledge about our ancestors. Geography is relatively straightforward subject. A lot of practice and a dedicated perusal of it should be enough to get good scores. While it can be relatively dry, it can be made interesting with pictures and videos.I focus on exam technique, past papers as well as text work (English Lit.)

Personal Description:
An enthusiastic young teacher who is doing his doctorate degree in the Electronics Engineering with specialization in Radio Frequency and Antenna design and measurements. By profession I am an Engineer and currently studying. I have a bundle of experience in teaching Primary/GCSE/A-LEVEL Subjects.

Personal Description:
I have been tutoring for over three years, with excellent results , while working in the maths department of a secondary school where I have been for 10 years.

I teach students of all ages and abilities, including those with SEN (special educational needs). In a classroom situation, on a one to one basis or as part of a small group.

I have extensive knowledge of the curriculum taught in years 7-11 and excellent resources, including past exam papers.

Teaching Experience:

I teach GCSE Maths to students who need extra help to reach their targets, this can be in a classroom situation or as part of a small group.
I also run intervention groups in tutor time and after school that offer extra help to GCSE students before their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I get a great deal of a satisfaction from working with students and helping them become more confident in a subject they quite often dislike because they find it difficult.
I have a very calm and patient manner as I want to build a good relationship with my students and for them to feel relaxed.
After assessing the student I set realistic goals for them so they feel they are achieving, each student is different and learns at a different rate, the important thing is for them to make the progress they are capable of.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Liam. Having recently passed my GCSs with 8 A*s and 2 As, I feel there is an opportunity here to use these grades and my knowledge to tutor others. My passion is Music, and I am an amateur musician who focuses around composition, music theory, and playing the guitar. However, I have similar interest in other subjects, such as History, Chemistry, and Maths. In fact, I am studying these four subjects at A Level currently.

Teaching Experience:

At school, I have always been the one in class chosen to help the other students when I am finished in my own work.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that a friendly approach is necessary, as well as an individual one - an unconventional one. I wouldn't consider myself a "by-the-books" tutor, as I am willing to change and shape my methods to suit each and every specific tutee I will come across. Becuase we all know that everyone learns differently, and that everyone has different strengths and weaknesses.

Personal Description:
I am a native Arabic language tutor with over 20 years' experience teaching Arabic from absolute beginners to GCSE level in UK Colleges. I teach adults and children in person and through Skype.

I teach Arabic (Modern / Classical) from complete beginners level, all the way to an advanced level, for both adults and children. Students learn all aspects of the language: reading, writing and speaking (general communication). I apply modern teaching techniques, which make the learning process appealing and enjoyable at each lesson.

Teaching Experience:

I have a huge wealth of experience in teaching Arabic to Adults and Children in the UK over a period of nearly 25 years. I started teaching Arabic to children privately (individually and in small groups) in the UK since 1992. I then extended my offering, by teaching adults in one of the Adult Community Colleges in the North of England. I then moved to London, and taught two courses of Arabic at Brent Adult Education Services from 1999 to 2001. During that period, I also completed my basic teaching training at Stanmore College in1999.
I then moved to Sussex and restarted in 2008 my Arabic teaching at Sussex Adult Education Services. I continue to teach there until now, as I am the only Arabic Language Tutor at college. Besides that, I kept my private teaching to adults and children, either in person or through Skype.
My wealth of experience in teaching Arabic is manifested by the following:
1) I use a wide range and varied teaching materials: books; dialogues; MP3 sound files; card games; CDs; computer games; videos; and worksheets. All of these are at different levels - from absolute beginners to advanced learners. I have created and developed some of these materials, while I have carefully selected the others to suit my teaching at different levels.
2) I plan and develop suitable materials to teach individual students, according to their abilities and understanding. I don't just follow one or two text books, or a computer program to teach the language. I create a session plan for each individual lesson, and when I teach a small group of students, I use suitable differentiation methods to cover the different needs of the students. For example, I currently teach two young children (brothers) at different ages and one of them has a disability, so my teaching materials are different to suit each of them, in order to keep both of them enjoy and benefit from the lessons.
3) Teaching students with different abilities and backgrounds, as well as disabled students. For example, I taught a partially blind adult student, as part of a large group, and then individually. She enjoyed the lessons and continued learning Arabic. My students are at different ages; different professions; different backgrounds; and with different objectives to learn Arabic. I currently teach young children under 10 years old; a teenager at GCSE level; several male and female adults (different professions); and a retired lady. This is in addition to my teaching at college.
4) I also teach at different levels. For beginners, I teach them the Arabic letters (pronunciation and writing) and communication skills in different day-to-day topics such as buying food and asking for directions. For the more advanced adult learners, I prepare them to be able to read, listen and understand the news in Arabic as well as reading stories, and debating topics. This gives them a good foundation if they want to work in Arabic speaking countries; work with NGOs where Arabic is required; and conducting business in the Arab world.
5) As a College Tutor, I have gone through several inspections / observations of my teaching. I used the feedback from these inspections to improve my teaching methods, style and materials. The feedback from my last observation session (in October 2016) was excellent, and I got the highest grade for a teaching session. The inspection report was full of positive feedback statements, such as:

"The tutor has a very high level of subject knowledge and communicated this in a calm and reassuring manner throughout. There was good rapport between the tutor and students which created a very supportive environment";

"Delivery methods were varied and included tutor presentation, use of sound files, handouts, speaking practice with the tutor, pair-work and some students using ICT resources. Tutor spoke clearly and utilised facial expression to good effect to demonstrate subtle differences in long and short vowel sounds. The pace appeared to be appropriate to all and differentiated learning activities enabled students to progress at their own pace. There were frequent opportunities for repetition. Handouts were either dual language (English / Arabic) or dual script (Arabic script / Latin alphabet script)";

"A range of assessment methods were in evidence including Q&A, quiz sheets and individual conversation between student and tutor in target language. Positive verbal feedback was given by the tutor throughout the session.
The tutor was well aware of the differing starting points of the students and the tutor had devised an excellent range of individual activities concerning Arabic to meet the needs of each learner. (One had matching cards, 2 played snakes and ladders, one had activity on iPad and one an activity on the computer.)";

"All learners were confident to speak in target language during Q and A sessions";

"Very clear differentiation was evident as the range of students was quite wide including absolute beginners alongside at least one student who had some previous knowledge to the extent that he could read/recognise written Arabic".

Tutoring Approach:

I teach at my home in Haywards heath but can also travel to the student's home in Sussex and London (travel expenses to be discussed). I also teach via Skype, and have a good experience with this method (I taught last year an IGCSE student in the Middle East, and currently teach GCSE to two young persons, all via Skype). I usually offer a free initial 10 to 15 minute trial session for assessment purposes and to make sure the student is happy with teaching via Skype.
