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:
I am a freelance language tutor who teaches Turkish and English as a Foreign Language. I also do translation and interpretation from time to time. I am a native Turkish speaker and have a dual citizenship (UK and Turkish) and have been living in Cambridge for 18 years.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work in one of the colleges in Cambridge as a Turkish Adult Education Tutor and also run small private Turkish classes from home. My students are all very happy with my teaching style. I also give private one to one English language lessons. After graduating from Anglia University this year I worked for a language school in Cambridge during the summer teaching IELTS exam preparation to a group of international students.

Tutoring Approach:

I adjust my teaching for student's individual needs and make learning a fun experience. As I have been teaching for more than 15 years I have a lot of materials to make the lessons interesting and I make sure that students benefit fully from my teaching.

Personal Description:
I am a twenty-seven year-old graduate, currently studying for a PhD in History at Queen Mary University of London.

I am young, enthusiastic, and have excellent communication skills. I have lived in London for two years, and in my spare time I enjoy football, playing the guitar and reading about history.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my academic career I have engaged in mentoring and tutoring schemes. During my A levels I tutored a number of pupils through their History GCSEs, and at university I was a volunteer mentor for first year students, helping them to structure their studies and get through exams during a particularly challenging time.

As part of my PhD programme, I teach three seminars with first-year undergraduates on a weekly basis on a course about the Anglo-American "special relationship" in the twentieth century.

I have worked as a private tutor for six years. I have lots of experience in tutoring students at GCSE and A Level, and have worked with students with a range of capabilities.

My long-term goal is a career as a lecturer or teacher. I have enjoyed the process immensely whenever I have engaged with students, and want to broaden my experience as much as possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that my young age, and the fact I took my A levels and GCSEs relatively recently, gives me a strong advantage in tutoring. All the difficulties and emotions students encounter when taking these exams are fresh in my memory, and I am confident that with encouragement, patience and a friendly understanding, I can make a huge difference to students' prospects. My strong academic record is testament to my ability to approach exams efficiently and with enthusiasm, and my experience in tutoring has developed my skills in approaching a range of student issues, from last-minute revision to long-term guidance.

Personal Description:
I am an LSE graduate in BSc Accounting and Finance and have also obtained postgraduate qualifications in Statistics, I am currently a dedicated and passionate full-time tutor, I am passionate about my subjects and dedicated to seeing students do well.

I was privileged enough to be afforded a very good private education and originally decided to take on tutoring as an opportunity to share my knowledge with others and allow them to realise their full potential and all the other benefits of a good education.

Five main factors have contributed to my success so far namely,
- I have high expectations of myself and my students, I believe every student can achieve the best grades with the right help

- I instil confidence and a "can do" attitude in students, regularly reminding them that nothing is "hard" if you have been shown how to do it properly

- I listen to students, this keeps lessons interactive and ensures I have constant update on their thought process and current understanding

- I am relatively young so students feel comfortable engaging with me and enjoy learning from me

- I ensure continuous support for students, I make myself available for questions via phone or e-mail throughout the day to ensure the support does not end at the end of the lesson!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Mathematics and Economics tutor for 4 years in this time my reliability and skill has enabled me to develop a good reputation which has allowed me to have a consistent base of 12 - 16 students on a weekly basis.

Career Highlights!

- Academic Year 2011 - 2012 I helped a student who was predicted a C grade at GCSE to achieve a coveted place at Eltham College after passing a difficult 16+ exam

- Academic year 2012 - 2013 I helped a student who scored a D grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 level after 8 months of tuition. He was the only student to score an A grade in his school since 2007.

- Academic Year 2013 - 2014 I helped a student who scored a C grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 Economics with an impressive 97% in Unit 1, 99% in Unit 2 and 100% in Unit 3. He had also had three previous tutors who he was dissatisfied with before coming to me.

Further Teaching Experience

At degree level I have taught Macro and Micro Economics to students attending Russell Group Universities, this year I helped an international student from Ukraine achieve over 70% in both Macro and Micro Economics.

I have taught A-Level Economics across Edexcel, AQA and OCR syllabuses with equal success. I have never had a student score below a B grade and have had several students score over 90% in modules.

I have taught Mathematics at A-Level, GCSE, 16+ and 11+ common entrance levels and covered AQA, Edexcel and iGCSE exam boards. I have helped students gain coveted places at top independent schools such as Eltham College and Bromley High. I have also helped students improve from as low as C grades at GCSE to A grades, however my most notable success this year came when I helped an AS Maths student who scored a D grade in January achieve a B grade in May with an impressive 84% in C1.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach embodies a long term approach to learning I teach students in a way which will allow them to be successful in higher study as well as their more short term exams. I also try to make students more confident in their abilities overall not just the material I teach.

I strongly believe that a solid understanding of basic principles is the foundation to success in academic study. I concentrate a lot of time and energy on instilling these basic principles in students.

I am also a strong believer in understanding over 'rope learning' I ensure that pupils understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, never encouraging them to simply regurgitate what they have seen previously.

I also encourage practical understanding of concepts frequently referencing real world examples and using objects to illustrate theory as I recognise that theory on its own given no relevance is harder to remember. Supplementary to this I also relate teaching material to potential job roles and tasks which I have knowledge of (mostly Banking or Business related) in order communicate usefulness to students and keep things interesting.

Finally I believe teaching successfully is ultimately about listening to your students I constantly encourage students to question things and express anything they don't understand or are not too sure of. If a student looks unsure or hesitant about something I will ask open questions or get them to explain concepts to me in order to fully grasp their understanding. This also helps build their confidence and ability to express themselves accurately.

Personal Description:
I am a 44 yr old graduate of Oxford University, where I studied French and German, and a postgraduate of the University of Manchester, where I obtained a Masters and Doctorate in English. I'm currently an Associate Tutor at the Universities of Salford and Edge Hill. I live in West Yorkshire, but can also cover South Lancs and Manchester.

Teaching Experience:

I'm really enjoying teaching some individual pupils at GCSE and A-level at the moment and now have the time to take on some more.

I have been teaching English in Higher Education since 2004. During this time I also taught an A-level student English on an individual basis, as extra preparation for Oxbridge entry - the student gained a place at Oxford. I've also taught two summer schools for visiting American students at the University of Manchester, and a first year university student privately last year.

I have experience with AQA syllabuses in French GCSE and English (Literature) GCSE and A-level (Gothic and Pastoral), and also OCR French.



I also worked for some years in the retail/hospitality sector, where I was an induction trainer, and had some involvement with NVQ assessment.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the most important thing in teaching is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where students are not afraid to ask any questions. I like to avoid overt formality, and make the teaching as enjoyable as possible. I'm very encouraging and positive, but within this will always offer constructive criticism when it's needed. I make sure sessions end with clear goals about what students need to do to improve - clear and achieveable goals, that I will check your progress with. I enjoy teaching a great deal, and will push you to achieve your very best.

For under 16s, I have a programme for teaching English, French, and German. This includes conversation, grammar, composition, and working with literature suited to the pupil's age range. It's flexible and pitched to any age and ability between 11 and 16.

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.

Personal Description:
I am a multi-instrumentalist originally from the Scottish Borders, playing flute, whistles and clarinet.
I specialise in folk and traditional music, mainly playing Scottish, Irish, Manx, Northumbrian and Breton. I studied at Newcastle University on the Folk and Traditional Music degree and gained a 2.1 overall grade with a 1st in performance in 2013. As well as working for Live Music Now, teaching privately and teaching at the Sage Gateshead I perform in a few different bands.

Projects and Employment

Performer and workshop leader for Live Music Now
As a music leader on the Live Music Now scheme, I have extensive experience of performing and delivering workshops to those who may not have regular access to live music. Audiences include children with special educational needs, adults with learning disabilities, children in hospitals and elderly people living in sheltered accommodation. Due to the diverse range of audiences and performance settings my partner and I have to be very flexible and always ready to tailor our performance accordingly.

The Sage Gateshead, Adult learning, Ensemble leader for two
bands within the Folkworks Tuesday program.
I write, arrange and teach music to the Beginner and Intermediate Bands at Folkworks Tuesdays.These sessions are taught using a combination of learning by ear and reading notation.

Private Music Teacher.
I give one to one lessons to adults and children of any ability and consequently my teaching style is very flexible.

Performer and recording artist in various bands.

Freya Rae & Louis Bingham
A quote from our website:
Freya Rae & Louis Bingham's music is varied, colourful and enthralling. They are a young duo who play a mixture of traditional tunes and modern compositions, drawing particularly on strong influences from Ireland and Brittany. On stage their unique and engaging performance dynamic communicates to audiences their love and sensitivity for the tradition, whilst presenting their own innovative compositions with virtuosity
and creative flair. Multi-instrumentalists, Freya's whistles, flute and clarinet blend seamlessly with Louis' guitars, cittern and bouzouki. They have recently released their debut album Curlicue, a recording which has garnered significant critical acclaim.
"Beautifully arranged and played with an entirely convincing sensibility... this is exquisite musicianship' The Living Tradition

Birlinn Jiarg
Birlinn Jiarg was brought together by multi-instrumentalist Beccy Hurst to perform the traditional Manx music she grew up with as well as her own compositions. Having performed with various Manx bands and dance teams over the years, Beccy moved to England to study on the Folk Degree at Newcastle University.
At the centre of Birlinn Jiarg's sound is the combination of Beccy's whistle and concertina playing and the clarinet and flute of Freya Rae (Freya Rae and Louis Bingham, Tom Kitching Band). The unusual combination of low whistle and clarinet was what originally inspired the band's formation and sets Birlinn Jiarg's sound apart from more traditional line-ups. Having performed in a duo with Beccy for a few years, Scottish guitarist and bouzouki player Alasdair Paul ( Pons Aelius , Kimber/Paul) was a natural choice for Birlinn Jiarg. Completing the quartet's line-up is bodhránist Callum Younger (Pons Aelius, Trio FCT). Callum and Alasdair have
worked together on a variety of projects and their inventive and powerful accompaniment provides a great platform for Beccy's and Freya's melodic interplay.

Tom Kitching Band
I play flute and clarinet in Tom's band. We have completed two tours around England and are planning more in 2016.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Sam. I am a 19 year old second year English student at UCL. I attended All Saints Blackheath primary school and Dartford Grammar School secondary school and sixth form. At Dartford I received a fantastic education allowing me to achieve 11 A*s and 1 A at GCSE, and 43/45 points in the IB (the equivalent of 4 A*s at A-Level). The IB required that I took 6 subjects - rather than 4 at A-Level - which was wonderful as I was allowed to keep my learning as broad as possible. I have a specialist knowledge of the IB and so offer tutoring all the subjects I studied at that level (including Classics which is not an option on this website).

During term time I live in Kings Cross, North London. I am happy to travel to surrounding boroughs. I am very flexible in regards to when the tutoring sessions would take place. During the summer, winter and easter breaks I live in Blackheath, South East London, but will still be able to travel to you.

Besides from my studies I enjoy a variety of sports (swimming, tennis, football), as well as writing, reading, acting, and politics. I also play lead guitar in a band with three close friends which gives me a great sense of creative fulfilment and joy.

Teaching Experience:

From October 2015 to May 2016 I taught a student GCSE English language through this website. English is not my student's first language so it was very important to create a comfortable atmosphere where he felt able to share his thoughts and ask questions. I witnessed an increased confidence in his grasp of the English language and in his personal interactions, helping the student achieve a C grade in both his written coursework and his speaking and listening. Before I began tutoring my student was on an E; he has now passed the course and will attend his college of choice.

From January to April 2016 I volunteered at a local comprehensive in Stoke Newington through Action Tutoring, teaching English Literature to a year 11 student bi-weekly. This presented a different challenge to my private tutee, with the student aiming to turn his grade from B to A. I helped hone his essay planning and structuring skills, and encouraged him not to be shy and express his creativity. I received a card of commendation from my coordinator who agreed that my student's writing had shown significant improvement.

During Sixth Form I was involved in a volunteering scheme called VSU with a local primary school in Dartford. This involved teaching children aged 8-10 certain sports and games as well as helping them with homework. Apart from being great fun this gave me good practice of communicating with younger age groups.

During sixth form I attended History Club, helping year 7s, 8s and 9s plan their research as well as sharing knowledge from my IB history course. Since leaving for university, Dartford Grammar have twice invited me back to advise current sixth formers on their university prospects and provide first-hand knowledge and experience of what to expect at university.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been incredibly lucky to have a series of hard-working, caring and genuinely inspiring teachers throughout my education. This has had a great influence on me, demonstrating how powerful a tool education can be. I have always wanted a job that in some way benefits society or helps others. This is why I am very enthusiastic to tutor.

My approach to tutoring is personal and dependent on what the student and student's parents are looking for. I am open to change and quick to adapt my style of teaching to the student's specific needs. If the student is preparing for an exam I will look at the components of the exam in specific detail. For example if tutoring GCSE English I would pay close attention to the assessed texts and poetry. If tutoring IB Latin I would prepare lessons on Latin language as well as analysing the themes and characterisation of set texts. As I have completed my GCSE and IB exams very recently, my knowledge of the courses is still fresh in my mind and I have a range of coursework, essays and notes to draw on. However although the final grade is important, I am very keen that the student enjoys learning. I am happy to look at external materials, in addition to the curriculum, that may be of interest to the student.

The lessons would be conversational and relaxed; I want the student to feel comfortable and happy. I am sympathetic and patient with people. I have worked very hard throughout my education and I would carry this work-ethic over into the preparation and organisation of the lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Oxford University Maths undergraduate with versatile interests and a passion for teaching. In love with Mathematics and hoping to become a teacher one day, I relish every opportunity I get to share my knowledge with others.

I am interested in classical music (play the violin), baroque opera and theatre. I am also writing a blog and am currently the editor-in-chief of the Oxford University Maths Society Magazine, the "Invariant".

Teaching Experience:

Co-founder and co-owner of Quill Tuition tutoring company: conducted Maths and English classes for individuals and small groups; including a Maths course for high-school students heading to leading UK universities; experienced with teaching online using interactive online whiteboard and classroom facilities (2015).

Private English tutor for adults and teenagers (2014).

Taught a high-school Maths insight course to a class of 14-year olds (2013).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that successful tutoring consists of two things: the right approach, tailored to individual needs of every student and constant repetition and revision. If my student does not understand something, I try different ways of explaining it to them for as long as it takes for them to grasp the difficult concept in question. This way I can quickly find out what learning style fits the given student and how to teach them most effectively.

Personal Description:
I am final year Computer Science student at the University of Manchester. This is my 3rd year here in Manchester. I have attained many qualifications during my high school years, related to maths. I have participated in many international, regional and national olympiads, and got several degrees (medals). So 1 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze medals are indicator of my success during my school years. I enjoy helping children with their difficulties during studying. I am doing math tutoring within Manchester area and possibly online. Since my father is a math teacher, I have been taught by him starting from my childhood, so I inherited the teaching skills and techniques from him. I am really good at this. I'd be happy if I can help you or your child with any problems related to studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have done for one year of maths teaching in advanced level to the students who are preparing for competitions in my home-country(Azerbaijan). Besides, I did last year 9 sessions with year_9 boy in Manchester and now tutoring a student to enter the Manchester Grammar school, and have one primary student too. In total I am doing tutoring continuously for 4 years in mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

One-to-one tutoring is the best technique I have observed so far. Generally, I am preparing initial sessions to be more like talking to them, I try to know my student from educational point of view (e.g. what is their background knowledge in certain subject). During my first session with my students I note down what they think their problems are and then decide what are the real difficulties of them. Starting from next sessions I prepare topics to be taught from zero or should be revised, and bring more examples related to them.

Subjects
  • Computer Studies / I.T.
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£15 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£15 p.h.)
  • Maths
