Personal Description:
I`m a 24 year old recent Physics graduate, based in Ascott (about 10 minutes from Chipping Norton). I`m patient, knowledgable and have a passion for the sciences!

I`m currently applying for a PhD in Nuclear Physics to start September 2017 and am working as a part-time private tutor in the meantime.

As part of my degree, I completed 3 years of studying, combined with a year of industrial research experience in Cambridge. Before this, I studied A-levels in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and History, in addition to 10 GCSEs.

Outside of work, I enjoy everything from football and tennis to hiking and rock climbing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a freelance private tutor for almost two years now, working in both the West Yorkshire area (whilst attending University) and the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire areas (following the completion of my degree). My tutoring experience includes all three Sciences and Mathematics at Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and GCSE/iGCSE levels, along with Maths and Physics at AS/A2 and degree levels.

Alongside my Physics degree, I partook in an optional 10 month `Physics in Schools` placement - which saw me work as a part-time teaching assistant for Maths and Physics classes at a local secondary school. In addition to helping out during classes (lesson planning, 1-to-1 support, marking etc.), I also ran after school maths and science tutoring sessions for students struggling with the course.

In addition, for 12 months during my `Year in Industry`, I represented my employer as a "Young Engineer`s Ambassador" to local schools in the Cambridge area. Twice a week, alongside a team of 3, I helped demonstrate basic scientific, mathematical and mechanical engineering methods to classes of all ages - with the intention of inspiring the next generation of potential scientists. The sessions included presentations, 1-to-1 guidance and interactive group workshops.

Tutoring Approach:

Having struggled slightly with Maths at a young age and, as a result, having undertaken extra sessions (aged 11), I am a huge believer in the benefits that can come from 1-to-1 tutoring. I aim to create a balance between a fun, relaxed teaching atmosphere, where students can feel confident enough to fully engage in the material, and a secure structured teaching environment with a clear plan for the future. I employ a wide variety of teaching materials in order to keep notoriously dull content interesting and intuitive, whilst ensuring that no method, theory or equation is relegated to the realms of confusion and mystery.

Overall, I have a flexible teaching style and will always formulate a teaching plan using the input from the student, parent/guardian and myself, with detailed progress updates after each session so the client can feel confident they are getting their money's worth!

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

Teaching Experience:

I have taught chess at school.

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

All curricula and exam boards covered.

Personal Description:
I have had a range of experiences. I began my career in Secondary education, I then moved, via a period of 4 years working for an independent film and TV production company, into university education. My particular interests are the political and cultural history of Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries; Film and Television History and Historiography, the history and philosophy of history.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a University tutor in History with 20 years experience. I have also taught in sceondary education, and am currently a GCSE examiner.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is one that enables students to tackle the work themselves. I will therefore:
Suggest approaches to work;
Discuss plans and approaches for coursework assignments;
Discuss approaches to interpreting source and stimulus material;
Make students aware of other (mainly secondary) materials in the areas under investigation.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate from Oxford University, with a great passion for the subjects I studied: Classics, Modern Languages and Ancient History.

Teaching Experience:

I mainly teach students who are finding their subject hard to get to grips with, or those wanting to push themselves further before an exam or interview. In both cases it is important for me to help my students enjoy the subject, as this is how they will get the most out of it. I use a mixture of the type of teaching they will get in school, along with some informal and extra-curricular elements to enhance their experience of the subject.

I teach students from young ages up to undergraduate level and beyond. My preferred method is using online tutoring via Skype, allowing students to feel comfortable in their own homes without the need to travel.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing with private tuition is to have it tailored to your needs, as this is probably what you are missing in school if you find a subject hard. I am very happy to discuss with you what you want to get out of your tuition, and following on from that either to focus on particular things or give a wide overview. Most importantly through helping you to understand more about the subject I hope to help you learn to love it!

Personal Description:
Of my 50 A-Level Law students 25% attained an A*and 35% attained an A grade last year. I have extensive experience delivering the year 7 to 9 math curriculum to both children and adults. I hold a Law degree, a PGCE, a teaching qualification for the delivery of Maths, a Masters degree in Education and am currently studying for a PhD in the Sociology of Education. Very friendly and able to identify the individual learning needs of my students.

Teaching Experience:

During my five years of employment in colleges, I have taught AS/A2 Law and Sociology to students aged 16 - 19 and legal elements of Level 3 BTEC Nationals in Applied Forensic Science. Students have consistently attained grades that rival private sector provision. Of my 23 A2 students that left in May 2014, 25% attained an A*and 35% attained an A grade. All but one learner attained a minimum of a C grade and no learner failed their course of study. This degree of outcome has been replicated with my current cohort of students, 50% of which attained an A grade at AS. These learners achieved significantly higher grades than predictions that were based on their performance in other A-Level choices and prior GCSE assessments. Attendance and retention rates of my learners are outstanding and the vast majority of learners continue into the second year. In my role I hope to improve the prospects of students who desire places at university. Further to this I have tutored Law and Sociology at undergraduate level, ensuring students attain 2.1 outcomes.

I utilise direct questioning at a suitable level for the individual learner and adopt appropriate teaching methods for the learning of more complex legal and sociological concepts.

My specialist areas of interest are international law, European un ion law, human rights, discrimination policy, religious freedoms/speech, reform and sociology.

Tutoring Approach:

I have received three consecutive `excellent` reports on my practice in the classroom.

I deliver lessons that are prepared with up to date knowledge of developments in the law and case studies often contain a Welsh dimension. Hand-outs and PowerPoint resources will always accompany lessons.

Prefer to keep things informal and friendly. Prefer to deliver in 2-3 hour teaching blocks.

Personal Description:
I have tutored secondary school students in the sciences, mathematics and French (I am bilingual in French and English) since 2012. This builds on my volunteering as an Academic Buddy at university and as a mentor for special needs children, as well as giving academic help to peers throughout school and university. With an excellent scientific background (I graduated with a 2:1 in Physics from Imperial College London in 2012) and my empathetic, patient, encouraging and conscientious nature, I greatly enjoy adapting my approach to different pupils' needs and personalities. This September I will begin studying Medicine at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry after spending 2 years tutoring and gaining experience in the medical field.

In my spare time I love to sing (I have sung in several choirs at school and university and done some backing vocals in an Indie band), listening to many different types of music and playing the guitar and piano. I also hugely enjoy exercise such as rowing (including very early morning sessions!) and going for long runs. My other interests are cooking, drawing, painting and reading.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored mathematics, the sciences and French for secondary school students from year 7 to year 13 since 2012. My tutoring experience includes year-long tuition supporting pupils' learning throughout the academic year for Physics and Further Mathematics A Level, lower secondary and GCSE Mathematics and Chemistry and Physics GCSE. I have also given several intensive revision sessions in the holiday period for GCSE and iGCSE in Mathematics, French and the sciences (both the separate sciences and double award). I also gain great satisfaction from using my bilingualism to tutor French up to and including GCSE level. I find pupils particularly enjoy learning French first-hand from someone who has grown up in France and experienced the French education system.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy explaining concepts in a clear and logical way and breaking down complex processes into easily understood steps. Throughout my Physics degree I have gained experience in presenting difficult topics in an accessible way.
I very much believe in making sure tutees actually understand the concept behind topics, as once they have grasped the concept they are able to apply it to other areas and to tackle trickier questions by themselves, and gain much more satisfaction than they would from pure rote learning.
I have a calm, patient and encouraging attitude towards my tutees and use my empathy to adapt my approach to suit each pupil's personality and learning style, whether they need help with the basics, stretching with tougher questions or encouragement in an area they are less confident in.
I will start off finding out a pupil's strengths, weaknesses and concerns in the subject, making sure they are confident with basic principles, and move on in a logical order, guided by the syllabus where needed.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Yasmin and I have just graduated from a BSc Hons Biology degree at the University of Nottingham with a 2.1. I consider myself to be a friendly, patient and understanding person, who will rarely give up on a challenge.

Teaching Experience:

I have done peer to peer teaching in my Secondary school where I would help other students at lunchtime or after school.
I have gained further experience in the past 2 years, since joining other tutoring agencies, by teaching Maths, Biology and Geography A levels and GCSE's, to various students on all different levels.

Tutoring Approach:

Obviously each person learns differently, so I would always account for that and tutor in a way that works best for that particular person. Past papers are a great way to prepare for exams so I will always go through model exam questions.

Personal Description:
I have seen students` confidence in their abilities increases and their understanding deepens. Both students and parents have offered positive feedback from the great improvement in their grade as a result of my tuition. For example, a student`s grade in A Level Physics improved from originally an E to an A after my tuition, while others attend their preferred schools after help revision for their entrance exams.

Teaching Experience:

After various school placements, such as teaching classes at St Aidan`s (ranked amongst the highest achieving comprehensive schools in the country), for over five years I have helped a multitude of pupils ranging from as young as six through to mature students.
Having experienced rigorous training, I am an Examiner for a major board and have relished the challenges of marking
candidates` papers. I feel this gives me an invaluable perspective when preparing my students for their own tests.
I am familiar with the different examination boards, particularly AQA, Edexcel, OCR, CIE and ISEB. Covering English and Reasoning where desired, I have prepared students for 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations as well as the STEP and PAT tests required for the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. With my tuition, students have gained entrance to the schools of Aldenham, Fulham Prep, Harrogate Ladies, Sedbergh, Charterhouse and Latymer. After my tuition, candidates attained the necessary grades for their university offers, including from Oxbridge, to study courses relevant to our preparation. I also have experience aiding with IB and professional skills tests together with Pre-U and IGCSE.
I am happy to offer tuition for all other syllabuses as well, for example WJEC and for free-standing maths qualifications.
I also offer tuition to adults wanting to improve their own maths understanding and skills, for example to help with their career or to pass graduate skills tests such as Kenexa, SHL and numeracy for QTS etc.
I have helped several students with Asperger Syndrome, those with dyslexia and students who are home schooled, have conditions including severe physical handicaps, speech and language difficulties or have had to change school due to behavioural difficulties. Furthermore, I have been trained for and have taught looked after children and also have experience of helping those for whom English is an additional language.

Tutoring Approach:

I find I can relate to students in a calm and patient manner and I have enjoyed helping them through difficulties with their subjects. I endeavour to find and solve the problems students have in their understanding to give them a firmer grasp of the topic, with the benefits from this being increased confidence and improved results.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher at a GCSE and Sixth Form college in west London.
I have a podcast about education, Education Bookcast. I cover one book or article on education research per week, for the benefit of teachers, parents, and anybody else who is interested.
I have been tutoring since 2006.
I also write educational software.
I am a Chemical Engineering graduate from Trinity College, Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring in 2006. My students have been of a variety of levels and backgrounds, ranging from Key Stage 3 Foundation level students to GCSE, A-level, and university students.

Here are some of the things my students have to say about me:

"Stas is an excellent tutor, I am studying Mechanical Engineering and his knowledge of Maths, Mechanics and Thermo Dynamics is extensive. He explained things in a clear and precise way and was always well prepared for the sessions. He was also punctual and reliable; it was a pleasure to learn from him."
Jack, Liverpool University

"I am currently studying Chemical Engineering, and Stas tutored me for Process Engineering, his teaching was nothing but the best, i understood the course in no time. He explains everything from the basics, something i wanted. Honestly, I will recommend him any day! He is a brilliant tutor."
Zahra, Manchester University

"Stas is an enthusiastic and patient Maths tutor. He has provided me with some very good examples, and has been a great help."
Jim, Manchester Metropolitan University, MA Bioinformatics

"Stas is a great tutor. I feel much more confident with Maths now then I did when we first started. It is evident in my grades that Stas has helped me improve in Maths. He is very good at explaining the material that I don't understand; he uses different scenarios to help explain them which enables me to apply Maths to real life situations. I enjoyed our tuition sessions, as Stas made Maths fun!"
Sehr, Manchester, A-level Maths

"This has been our first experience of using a tutor and it has been very good, thanks to Stas. Not only is he very reliable, but my son has enjoyed the sessions and learnt a great deal in terms of problem solving with his maths, Further Maths and Physics. Stas has also been able to help with some more complex Chemistry work. So far, they have worked through the more challenging sections of the Further Maths syllabus and past papers. Most importantly, my son finds their sessions extremely useful and Stas inspirational to work with."
Tamlyn, London

"My son, Alex was having problem with Biology, so far he had only few lessons with Stas but there's been a huge improvement in his grade already. We have been so impressed with Stas's teaching techniques, that we are taking on extra lessons in Maths and Physics with Stas. Stas is the most genuine teacher I've come across, there is no nonsense with him. I can see that Stas truly enjoys teaching and more importantly my son finds learning from Stas is so enjoyable."
Mel, Cheshire

"Stas has been extremely helpful. He has helped me with my math problems even though I am a mature Masters student. Stas was very patient with me and took the time to fully understand my math learning needs and difficulties. He took the time to understand the methods I had been previously taught but did not fully understand. He analyzed what my difficulties and issues were regarding math basics. Stas is a very professional and an effective teacher. I would highly recommend Stas to anyone who requires a math tutor."
Paola

Tutoring Approach:

Different people have different problems, so it would be somewhat inflexible to have a completely "catch-all" approach to how to teach people.

However, I tend to prefer a teaching style where the student is as active as possible. I usually acheive this by trying to get the student to reason through problems themselves, while helping them along the way. In my experience, this also helps me see where there are gaps in the student's knowledge, and helps me understand their thought process. (It is imperative to understand where the student is in their understanding.) It also helps approach a very common problem with students, which is fear, or lack of confidence - being encouraged to think through ideas and problems which they find difficult in a safe and non-judgmental environment can help them develop a better attitude to their subject.

I also try to offer connections with, and examples from, everyday life. I generally draw and use diagrams as much as possible, or even use props, as I find it to be the most expressive way of teaching.

I am also very enthusiastic about Science and Maths. I often find that this ends up rubbing off on some of my students!

Personal Description:
I am a Maths tutor living in Brighton, I tutor all over the surrounding area.

I have a Mathematics degree, BSc Hons from Queen Mary, University of London.

I tutor all age group's from primary school up to A-Level. Flexible times and meeting places, either at student's houses, local libraries or from home.

I am fully qualified and CRB checked.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a wide range of pupils ageing from 6 - 18 years old at all levels including A-Level.

I tutor on a one to one basis or groups up to 3 students.

I have worked in Hove Park School on the Student Associate Scheme in which i was involved in classroom teaching from year 7 to year 13.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to identify with the student the key areas in which they need to improve on for success in either future exams or so that they are able to develop their maths skills to help them with other areas of the subject and help the student to become more confident when approaching tasks.

Personal Description:
I am a returning ex-pat having lived and worked in Spain for 13 years. I learned Spanish naturally and have a similar approach to teaching. I use the similarities between the languages to lower barriers and make learning fun and easy. I teach natural Spanish not endless grammar or lists of nouns or verbs. I have been in a face to face environment all my working life and put people at their ease quickly. I have used the language in both a casual and business environment.

Teaching Experience:

As a private tutor I have been helping students for over 3 years now. I have developed a method of making the language accessible and easy to speak. There are no verb lists. Here's the challenge: I can teach present tense verb endings in 10 minutes, past tense in 5 minutes and future in one minute. How long have you been trying? Make learning fun!

Tutoring Approach:

I learned Spanish naturally and have a similar approach to teaching. I use the similarities between the languages to lower barriers and make learning fun and easy. I teach natural Spanish not endless grammar or lists of nouns or verbs. Students find my methods fun and relevant. I can offer support to academic learning within a curriculum or help people to get by on holiday. If required I can take a student through to fluency in a manner more suited to everyday use.

Teaching Experience:

I have been volunteering at Young Carers helping with homework and extra tuition for the previous year. I also work privately helping those of all ages and abilities, including adult learners as well as children of a very young age. Over the years I have acquired a lot of tricks and techniques to make arithmetic easier to learn.

Although I claim to help up to an Advanced Higher Maths standard, I have the ability and experience to help those at university struggling with foundation maths courses.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor it is my job to help my students unlock their potential. To show them the real life application of what they are learning and how to apply their new found knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am a Taiwanese who base in Edinburgh. Before I moved back to Scotland in 2014, I was a doctoral student at the University of Chicago in Greek and Latin. I have a BA degree in history from National Taiwan University (2006). After I spent a year studying Greek and Latin at Trinity College Dublin (2005-6), I gained a post-baccalaureate certificate in Greek and Latin from Columbia University in the City of New York (2008) and then a MPhil in Latin from the University of St. Andrews in 2011. Afterwards, I spent three years pursuing PhD research on Greek and Latin at the University of Chicago. At the present, I am photographing Edinburgh and Dublin and preparing my portfolio, exhibition, and photo books. I am very much enthusiastic about finding knowledge in both textual and visual worlds. Moreover, I am writing stories about Taiwanese diaspora for a journal in Taiwan. When it comes to Latin, I am currently reading Statius, Tibullus, and Seneca because I believe learning Latin is a life-long career that requires one's enthusiasm and dedication.

Teaching Experience:

I have been learning Latin for more than a decade, at National Taiwan University, Trinity College Dublin, Columbia University, the University of St. Andrews and the University of Chicago. I have TAed and taught Latin in Taiwan and the States. During this period, I have helped Cambridge University Press to translate Cambridge Latin Course series into Chinese Mandarin. During my stay in Chicago (2011-13), I also helped young people who have learning and reading difficulty.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:
Apart from solving the problems of your school work, we will do more exercise, such as unseen translation and English-Latin translation, to find out your weak and strong points. The exercise will help me prepare materials that will help you memorise syntax, vocabulary, and grammar. Grammar can be very boring and put down students' interest in Latin. However, learning through reading interesting, alien, and exotic stories will enhance students' motivation to look into the Roman Antiquity. Reading will also more effectively shed lights on the parts of grammar and syntax we need to make up. Moreover, I will show you how to master speech recognition tactics in order to develop a stronger reading comprehension. I believe in the end of this course, we will have a better understand of Latin as a language and Latin literature as a whole.




English
I have been learning English since I was fifteen. I have overcome many difficulties, such as taking language exams, living in foreign lands, and doing academic works. I will share those experience with you. This tutoring will focus on the various needs and interests of individual students. You may bring the materials that interest you. We also can look into big books, newspapers or stories covering your the stories of your country. We can also look into websites which offer wonderful resources for people whose first language is not English, such as BBC. By reading, listening and discussing together, I will help you find out your weak points and we will start from there.
