Personal Description:
I have been a teacher of Economics for the past 6 years and the results my students achieve are significantly above the national average. I have had previous experience as an Economics Examiner for AQA and currently examine for Edexcel (new specification!).

Teaching Experience:

I currently work for a leading Independent School In Dorset. I have six years experience teaching Economics A Level.
I was an Economics Examiner for AQA from 2012-2015.
I am currently an Economics Examiner for Edexcel and worked on both the Micro and Macro papers for the new specification last year.

Tutoring Approach:

My availability for private tutoring can be quite erratic as I work for a boarding school and have three young children. I would be willing to travel within a 15 minute radius of Sherborne to tutor.

  • Economics
  • A-Level or Highers (£45 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have an Honours degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and am a certified EFL teacher. Until I began tutoring, I worked as an independent IT consultant fro eighteen years.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching individuals (adults and teenagers) for almost 8 years as my main job

Tutoring Approach:

Being able to concentrate on the individual means lessons can be tailored exactly to meet the needs of the student. This allows the maximum increase in the student's confidence in the subject which is ultimately reflected in much improved exam performance. It is very rewarding to see this process.
I like to immediately identify and concentrate on any areas where the student has difficulty and develop strategies and methods with the student to overcome those difficulties.
I enjoy teaching individuals and I think this is communicated to the student. Effective and productive study requires a touch of light-heartedness, I believe.
I have always had excellent reports.

Personal Description:
In 2013, graduated from King's College London and Humboldt University in Berlin, where I studied English law and German law, LLB an LLM, in English and German. After working for a year in admin-related jobs, I did another masters, in EU International Relations, at College of Europe in Bruges, studying in English and French. I spent the last half a year in Brussels, doing a traineeship in the European Commission and now I am back in London, looking for a job and would love to do some tutoring as well, as I have some experience as a teacher and really enjoy doing it!

As far as my knowledge of German is concerned, I spent a year in Berlin (Humboldt University in Berlin) doing my masters in German and European Law and Legal practice. It included writing and defending a masters thesis in German as well as passing exams in German. I learnt German at school (passed it with the best grade at my IB final exams - A-levels equivalent, I also passed the test DaF, proving the knowledge of this language at the C1 level) and at university, where I had legal German courses. I have experience teaching German as I was tutoring German during my last year at KCL to fellow stundents within the framework of the KCL Language Society. I was also teaching German through this website a couple of years ago and very recently, during the traineeship in Brussels I was teaching intermediate German to a group of fellow trainees on a weekly basis.

As for Polish - I come from Poland originally, so Polish is my mother tongue. I went to school in Poland and only left the country at the age of 19. During my last year at KCL, I was also giving individual Polish lessons part time to English people.

Teaching Experience:

I was teaching English to children in kindergarten in my home country when I was at secondary school. The children were aged 4-6 and I was teaching basic vocabulary and expressions to them. I was preparing various games and songs in order to make the teaching experience easier for them.
While at university, I was an active member of the language society and so I taught German to fellow students, at the beginners and intermediate levels. I taught them grammar rules but also made them practice speaking and listening. I was giving individual Polish lessons during my last year at university as well. Recently, I was a German tutor teaching intermediate level German to the trainees in Brussels.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutors must be very patient and answer every question as carefully and as exactly as they can. They should know what their tutees' motivation for learning new languages is and try and set goals that would be suitable to the tutees' needs. This means, tutors should approach each tutee individually and find out what is most important for them in the learning process.
I also believe that learning a new language requires a lot of work to be done by the tutees at home. This is why I give homework as I believe students need to have motivation to study also outside the classes. I set a specific number of vocabulary they need to learn for the next class and check if they have done that. Moreover, I believe learning a language is not just about the grammar rules and for this reason I not only give my students grammar exercises but also encourage them to listen to the radio/news/tv etc. in the language they learn and try to speak as much as possible.

Personal Description:
My name is Kieran and I am an enthusiastic English student currently studying at Loughborough University. I have worked in the theatre for around eight years and am therefore incredibly confident and easily approachable. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at school and always thought about the prospect of teaching or tutoring so that I could pass on my knowledge and love for English to those who perhaps need some extra help in reaching those top grades at GCSE and AS level. My age also allows me to empathise with current GCSE and A-Level students as it was not long ago that I sat those exams myself. I am therefore confident with current exam board syllabuses and the relevant texts being studied. Please feel free to contact me regarding the tutoring of English Literature.

Teaching Experience:

Supervisor and staff at Rainham School for Girls summer school 2012.
Volunteer at local theatre group teaching 7 - 18 year olds music.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very relaxed attitude towards tutoring as I believe this is the best environment to learn. Students will bring current school work with them to the session and we will work through any problems or issues that they are struggling with. As well as this, I will prepare literary examples and worksheets if students give me notice as to what they wish to study during the coming session. I am completely dedicated to helping and supporting those who need an extra push during exams or even just wish to receive extra guidance within the field of English Literature.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student with a passion for impacting knowledge in children. I have worked with children for the past 10 years on various subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children aged between 4 and 11 maths/reading and writing in the past. This was mostly voluntary due to the passion I have for children. I equally tutor chemical engineering students at the university.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach with school books and internet materials. Visual aid is a necessity as it give a clearer picture of what is being taught. The children are made to reflect on what has been learnt prior to the start of a new session. I also take time to study the children in order to identify the strengths and areas that need improvements.

Personal Description:
Postgraduate Student.

I am a twenty-one year old postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and understand the tricky bits of their material which is escaping their understanding. I am a Canadian studying abroad here in Glasgow and therefore do not have GCSEs or A levels, but I have the equivalent levels from Canadian institutions with top marks. I tutor best in history, my chosen subject, English or French as a second language, and maths, which I not only did well in during secondary school, but all of which I have also studied at the University level. I get along very well with students of all ages and try to make the tutoring experience a fun an interesting one for any student.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring 1 on 1
ESL teaching (Group sizes from 5-12)
Age range of experience: 7-18 year olds

I have several years of teaching experience in different settings and with different age groups. I've taught English as a Second Language in a camp setting which ran lessons similar to classroom lessons every morning. I had to design my own approaches to various topics which gave me a lot of practice in making studying and learning interesting and easier for children who were less interested or struggling. I also tutored on a private basis for primary school-aged children through the medium of French and English in reading and writing skills as well as the general subjects at that age. I have tutored at the secondary school level in Maths, English, French, Sciences, and History. I have also been a teaching assistant at the University level for both Irish and Scottish Gaelic second language courses as well as a general Celtic World knowledge course.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun.
Aim is to help student learn how they understand instruction so that they are more confident in their own abilities and can perform better in the future.
Use past work to improve on future work.

Learning should be fun and I strive to make the tutoring experience less about school work and more about understanding the ways in which what is being taught is of interest to the student. Finding ways to improve the student's understanding and learning experience sometimes means approaching the material in a different way than is being taught in class. Teachers understand that not all student learn the same way but cannot always deliver their teaching in all these ways. By helping the student understand the material first and then explaining the method the teacher used to explain it first allows the student to reach their full potential, understand the material, and go back to class with a better chance following the teacher's instruction.

All of this is done in a light-mannered way that does not make the child feel as though tutoring is a punishment for not understanding in class, but rather, a (sometimes lengthy) temporary situation until the student becomes more confident about his or her own skills!

Using the student's own work is an important tool for helping them recognize their own areas of difficulty and should be used again as mock exams to help the student see tangible proof of their improvements. The best understanding of any subject comes from watching it being done/having it explained, doing it oneself, and then teaching it in turn.

Personal Description:
I have eight years of teaching and lecturing experience at the University of London, the University of Liverpool, and the University of Warsaw in Poland. Whilst I have lots of experience lecturing to large groups, I also have a great deal of experience teaching smaller groups and also one-to-one tuition.

I am also a barrister and worked for several years in the field of white collar crime and competition law so I would also be happy to tutor in these subject as well.

Teaching Experience:

I have lectured in all of the core law courses which make up a law degree and in addition have taught company law, evidence law, intellectual property and international trade. I am happy to teach almost any law subject but my particular favourites are criminal law, legal method, contract law and tort law.

I have extensive experience of tutoring A-Level and btec law. I also have an undergraduate degree in politics and have experience of tutoring politics at A-level and undergraduate level.

I am happy to tutor in face-to-face meetings at my office within the University of Liverpool or via Skype.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching philosophy for individual tutoring is the same for small groups, the most important thing is to make sure every session is a dialogue between tutor and student. There is no point in tutors just talking at students and my teaching style is focused very much upon working with students on the particular areas of interest they may have.

Having taught a vast range of abilities I really enjoy working with individuals or smaller groups to improve their particular level and make sure they achieve the best they can.

I have been working in different language schools in the UK as an EFL teacher and Director of Studies and at the University of Southampton, teaching international students. Besides teaching English as a second/foreign language I've always wanted to improve my knowledge and get to know more about how language learning can become even more effective. That`s why I've done lots of research and have a number of publications as well.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching English as a second or foreign language for more than 20 years. I`ve also been working as a TESOL/TEFL teacher trainer.
Every summer I teach English for Academic Purposes for international students at the University of Southampton.
I've been teaching different age groups from little kids to pensioners.

Personal Description:
My name is Umayr. I teach Chemistry, Biology and Maths up to A-Level standard. I also teach GCSE Physics and English Language. In addition to this, I can also teach both numeracy and literacy at primary school level. I am married and I am possibly looking to do PGCE to go into teaching in a school/college later on. I have moved recently to Bradford from London and am new to the area. I have my own transport to travel to any potential tutees.

Teaching Experience:

I have around 10 months of self-employed tutoring experience. I did tutor a fellow class student in A-level maths for a short period of time to improve his understanding of maths, especially pure maths. I also taught chemistry to university students in a university in Poland and was able to help about 70% to 80% of the whole year of first year medical students pass this subject. I provided them out of hours classes to help with certain difficult provided and even provided my own version of written revision notes to help prepare for the exam.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to help the student understand the topic by giving examples and showing solutions with in-depth explanations in simple terms so that the student can understand. I even give the student example questions to try out to make sure they understand the methods or factual knowledge. I believe that a student can only be fully prepared for an exam by attempting past exam papers.

Over 2016-17, I taught the Edexcel board for Government & Politics at AS and A2 level to six private students and GCSE English to four. I also helped several students undertake their history coursework. All achieved A*s in their final grade.

PLEASE NOTE: I no longer teach history but am more than happy to assist with coursework.

I have been accepted to Cambridge twice and can therefore assist with personal statements and interview technique. Furthermore, I have been sitting exams for the last fourteen years and am therefore well equipped to help students learn and master exam technique. I also specialize in editing and improving coursework.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach A-Level Politics and History at a private school in Ashtead two days during the week. This leaves me the rest of the week to pursue my private tutoring/teaching. I am fully trained on the latest syllabus and have been DBS (formally CRB) checked.

I have tutored for the last few years in the Surrey area, bringing several students grades' up from B/C to A and A* at A-Level. I also specialize in editing and improving coursework and dissertations and have coached several students through the Oxbridge interview process. Moreover, I have three younger siblings, and regularly help them with their work at both GCSE and A-Level standard.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor teaching methods to each individual student. I am hands-on however and like to create guides/notes for students to take with them. I prefer to teach rather than get paid to watch students work - although I will set useful exercises to do during our sessions. I am all about exam technique and strategy!

I am also used to working with students with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated English and Media academic with a Masters Degree in English, a First Class Degree in Scriptwriting for Film and Television and a Masters Degree in Directing Digital Film & TV.

I also have a PAL certification for classroom based tutoring.

I can provide teaching in Film Studies, English (inc. GCSE, A'Level, English as a Foreign Language, Degree level and Basic and Reading and Writing skills), Communication Studies and Screenwriting.

I currently offer private tutoring, both online and in person to teenagers, college students, university students and adult learners, offering a patient and caring approach. My teaching and therefore my hourly rate is affordable as I do it for the love of the work.

As well as undertaking work for with the BBC (something the media / film students tend to be interested in) I have also worked on a number of feature films / short films, had articles published and I have won awards for my writing). Therefore, I have a considerable amount of practical and academic knowledge across the media industry, suitable for English, Film and Media Disciplines.

I really care about my students and helping them achieve their goals. I truly believe that anyone can do it if someone believes in their potential. Whether they are just starting out or if they are a mature learner. Everyone deserves to be the best they can be.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 9 years I have been providing a broad range of academic training courses and tutoring to students and adult learners in GCSE / A'level English, Digital Media and Scriptwriting, but I have also offered more basic reading / writing skills.

I currently work with a number of private students from GCSE level through to A' level and beyond, helping them achieve their goals and supporting them with the challenges that inevitably come with preparing and passing exams.

I have delivered classes to university level students, college students, school students and business owners across a wide range of disciplines.

I am always happy to provide references for my work too, so you can be assured of a great level of service.

Due to my work, I have a fully enhanced CRB check which is available for viewing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning through association with what you know, is the easiest way to tutor people of all ages. It generally helps students to identify more easily the knowledge they need to pass their exams.

Being very patient, I find it's better to adapt my tutoring to the individual, rather than apply a 'one size fits all'. This means a better success rate as different students have different strengths.

I usually like to assess learners at the beginning of meeting them / talking to them and then devise a target plan to help them achieve learning goals.

ONLINE TRAINING

At the moment, I offer English GCSE / A'Level, Media, Film Studies, English as a Foreign Language and bespoke University tutoring support, as well as reading and writing skills. I provide full support and 'real time' lessons with a clear structure. Each element is specific to the student being taught.

So if you are looking for a friendly tutor who will encourage you to speak better English or you want to tackle an essay or prepare for an exam, or you want to brush up on the basics, I can help.

I can deliver online tutoring at a time to suit you on an ad-hoc or more regular basis.

Whether you want help with GCSEs, A levels, basic skills, you would like help with media / communication studies or you would like to get to grips with some basic English, I can provide a positive and friendly approach that will actually help you and a very thorough teaching method.

FILM STUDIES

I cover the following areas:

Exploring Film
Exploring Film outside Hollywood
Exploring and creating
The 'language' of film
The organisations which produce, distribute and exhibit films and
The audiences for film.
Narrative
Film Making
Storytelling
Production

I'm an award winning writer, and media professional so am fully up-to-date with the latest techniques / syllabus requirements.

ENGLISH

Broadly speaking I cover the entire syllabus of the relevant level being studied for and the different areas in that level;

A'Level
GCSE
Literature study
Language
Grammar
Punctuation
Comprehension
Essay writing
Essay planning
English tools
Poetry study
Creative writing
Communication
Comparative analysis
Language acquisition
Basic reading
Basic writing

This list is not exhaustive but it should give you an idea.

I am particularly good with shy students or those who lack confidence.

I can travel to you within a reasonable distance at no extra cost or I can provide structured lessons online.

Should you want to use my services and you are outside of my catchment area, I can help but my hourly rate would reflect the distance / time to get to you, if it is outside of the travel radius I serve.

Personal Description:
I'm a Brazilian freelance photographer and film-maker based in London. Specialized in making ethnographic videos and documentaries, I also film and photograph live events, including talks, workshops and performances. I have worked in the UK and internationally creating content for research agencies, charities, schools, universities, individuals and businesses.

I hold an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London. I also have ten years professional experience as an image-maker, stretching back to my time as a photojournalist for Jornal do Commércio, a regional newspaper in my hometown of Recife. My academic training and extensive practical experience allow me to work with understanding and sensitivity whilst representing people's habits, cultures and environments. I am attuned to capturing the details of people's everyday lives and the ways they communicate, eat, dance, work, pray, interact and shape their homes.

My approach to photography and film-making relies on building an empathetic, personal and respectful relationship with people, applying methods of anthropology, and documentary, alongside poetic imagery and engaging storytelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of tutoring and classroom assistance, and working with children, young people and adults in the UK and Brazil.

My previous experience includes:

Teaching Assistant: Video production for Anthropologists (May 2017)
Spectacle - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers and students on training Course.
- Helping students utilizing video cameras and sound equipment.
- Assisting students using video editing software.
- Assisting students doing practical video exercise in location.

Teaching Assistant: Film (Nov 2013 - Jul 2014)
Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers with classes of young people aged between 9 and 19 years old.
- Providing classroom support during film and drama lessons.
- Assisting individuals and groups with workshop and classroom activities.

Teaching one-to-one classes (Jun 2012 - Jan 2013)
- Planning, preparing and teaching one-to-one Photography and Portuguese courses for young people and adults.
- Responsible for adapting existing material or designing new material to suit individual learning needs.
- Planning and running photographic workshops and day trips for students.
- Marking and providing formative feedback on work.

Teaching and Laboratory Assistant: Photography (Sept 2010 - Sept 2011)
Universidade Católica de Pernambuco - Recife, Brazil.

- Technical, teaching and laboratory assistant for undergraduate courses in Photography and Photojournalism.
- Introducing photographic and darkroom techniques to students.
- Classroom and teaching assistance.
- Responsibility for maintenance and organization of photographic studios and darkroom.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I like to combine theory and hands on practice encouraging people to become independent learners, creative and critical thinkers. I have an empathetic, relaxed and joyful approach to tutoring and like to develop a good relationship with people to ensure that they feel comfortable to learn and to feedback on lessons. I like to work in collaboration with people to tailor lessons according to their needs, interests and levels.

With years of experience practising image making and studding the subject, I believe that theory and practice go hand in hand. With photography and film I think it's important to develop our 'ways of seeing' both by looking at things that have been made and by studding the thinking and mechanics behind these medias. It is also important to reflect on our own practice to develop our abilities and discover our potential.

A hand on experience is key when learning how to photograph and film. It is by practising that we familiarize ourselves and learn how to handle confidently our instrument of work. It's also by practising that we expose ourselves and learn how to deal with the unforeseen events that confront us when we are photographing and filming - be it the instability of light, decisions regarding compositions, interaction with a diversity of people, a great range of emotions that are presented to us while we hold the camera, etc.

I can facilitate photography and film making from camera work to editing for children, young people and adults. Please do get in touch to discuss - I'm always happy to help!
