Personal Description:
I am an experienced primary school teacher and Headteacher with significant teaching expertise at KS1 and KS2. I am also a qualified SENCO and have vast experience in SEN. I am a Headteacher in an excellent local school and set high standards for all my pupils. I am able to offer tuition in English, Maths and Science at both key stages. I am based in Epping but can travel to you by negotiation. I can provide references on request from past and present clients who have achieved and continue to achieve success in their studies at all levels. I enjoy seeing my pupils make rapid progress and achieving academic success.

Teaching Experience:

I specialise in Entrance Examinations at 7+ and 11+, SEN and tuition for pupils who lack confidence and skills and need support to improve. I have vast experience teaching within excellent local schools and I am currently a Headteacher in a large Junior School. I teach children on a 1-2-1 basis to ensure that they receive the additional input that they need in order to achieve. I specialise in assisting children who lack confidence in specific areas and I am able to assist these children in improving their skill levels within their own school. I can provide excellent references on request from many happy pupils and parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and understanding tutor with the ability to communicate effectively with both adults and children. My aim is to ensure that pupils develop additional skills and increased confidence in their studies. I make my lessons fun and enjoyable for pupils so that they are able to enjoy learning and are keen to attend my tutoring sessions. I keep parents updated on their children's progress on a regular basis and encourage children to share worries about specific subject areas so that we can explore them together.

I love languages and I love teaching. Apart from reading foreign literature, I also enjoy going to the gym, swimming and singing in two local choirs. I also work as a translator.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for almost twenty years and have been tutoring for the same amount of time.

Personal Description:
At undergraduate level I studied Classics at Oxford University, which involved rigorous language learning and a close engagement with set texts. I was awarded an academic scholarship for my examination results. Then I completed a Master's Degree in Latin literature at UCL, focusing particularly on the influence of Latin literature on contemporary theatre. I was awarded The Dean's List prize for academic excellence. It is Latin poetry that particularly holds my attention because, even after two thousand years, there is still so much new to be said about it.

Teaching Experience:

Private tutor for six years, with significant experience in private tuition of Latin, Greek and English at all levels.

Taught Latin at a prep school. This required lesson planning, homework marking and well-tailored teaching because of the small class sizes. Although we referred to the 'Minimus' textbook frequently as a well-planned learning scheme there was no strict curriculum, which meant that we could use the lessons to explore some of the more enjoyable aspects of studying Classics.

Teaching assistant for primary school Latin classes. The class size was small, which allowed me to get to know the students individually and help each of them according to their level.

Excellent, up-to-date knowledge of the current syllabuses for Common Entrance, GCSE and A-level and have worked extensively from the Oxford and Cambridge Latin Courses, from Athenaze, Greek to GCSE, the ISEB Common Entrance publications and from other frequently used textbooks.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing is to find out the areas with which the student will need the most help. In the first session, I'll discuss with the student which areas we should focus on, then I will plan my lessons carefully to address those areas of difficulty.

I like to build routine into tuition sessions, particularly when learning vocabulary, so that the student knows what to expect in each session.

Personal Description:
I am a 29 year old graduate with both a Masters and PhD Degree in Chemistry from the University of Glasgow.

I also run a summer school program to allow high school students the opportunity to gain extra credits for University entry.

At present I am employed as a Chemistry Lecturer at a local University.

Tutoring Approach:

My students describe my tutoring style as relaxed and friendly, within an environment which allows them to express their concerns and difficulties a lot easier than they could in a classroom. I am happy to provide extra services such as assessment tests and homework assignments at no extra cost.

Personal Description:
I grew up in Japan, and have lived and worked in Japan and Taiwan, so I have a good command of Japanese and Mandarin. I have the advantage over native speakers of having mastered them as a foreign language for myself, so I know from experience how to teach it.

Tutoring Approach:

Do you want to start making real progress?
Or do you want to learn a few key phrases for a holiday or business trip?

Personal Description:
I am a friendly person with a good sense of humour. I like people and try to take a positive view of their difficulties and problems. I enjoy teaching English. I learn something new from my students all the time; it is so rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years. I have 25 years experience working with teenagers in a further education colleges, with younger people in schools and latterly in adult education. I was an AQA examiner in English for 5 years and understand most examination boards' set requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to agree long term goals broken down into small achievable tasks. If a student has a problem with any work I set I prefer them to contact me by telephone or email for further help rather than struggle on.

View Mark's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
At Birmingham University I obtained a first class degree in mathematics and went on to qualify as a chartered accountant. It was my desire to learn Spanish that originally made me move to Andalucía in the south of Spain ten years ago. With full immersion in the language, I soon became fluent in Spanish. In order to be with my wife, I moved to Guatemala, where I took the opportunity for a career change in the local village school. I realised that teaching gave a much higher job satisfaction and was much more suited to my lively, upbeat manner.

Teaching Experience:

After some teacher training I found a job as a maths teacher in an international bilingual school called Atitlán Multicultural Academy. I went on to become the headmaster of the school for three years. Monitoring and assessing other teachers gave me a great insight into different styles. After the birth of my daughter I wanted to travel less so I started giving Spanish and maths lessons via skype. This video conferencing tool means I can give classes face to face to students in the comfort of their own home.

Tutoring Approach:

My Spanish lesson plans are based completely on the student's objectives and learning styles. Most of my present students want to learn conversational Spanish, so I concentrate more on the oral skills of speaking and listening. However, I always try and cover the grammatical points in a clear systematic way, ensuring the student does not get demotivated with the more technical side. The most important for me is that learning is fun, and clear advancements are made in each class.

The maths lessons deal with the specific problems of the students to aid understanding in areas that they did not fully pick up in school. I specialise in exam preparation for GCSE, AS level and A level. The students are made to analyse the question, break down the requirements and give structure to their answers whilst making notes on the steps which they found difficult.

Personal Description:
I am a fun-loving, chatty and bubbly person and committed to the success and achievement of my students. I try to incorporate humour into my lessons as much as possible as students are more likely to remember what they have learnt that way. I am out-going and always look forward to meeting new people. I am a native english speaker and CELTA qualified. I teach all areas of EFL but definitely prefer to teach conversational and business english.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified in September 2013 and have been teaching ever since then. I have got 7 hours class teaching experience but the rest and the majority of my experience lies with teaching adults in a 1:1 setting.

Tutoring Approach:

I tend to take a fairly laid back approach to teaching (depending on the student's requirements). I take a very pro-active approach and try and make the lessons as fun as possible, thus the student gains more from them and is more likely to remember what they have learnt. I encourage students to use what they have learnt outside of lessons, thus increasing their practice time and therefore improving their english immensely. I can set homework if I feel it is necessary but the responsibility to complete that work lies within the student. I motivate my students to go above and beyond the standard requirements. If the student is committed then this is always reciprocated.

I am available to travel to anyone in the Hillingdon borough.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught filmmaking at university level for the last three years. This has always included a sizeable level of mathematics, from optics, budgeting and sound encoding. I have taught GCSE, A2 level and 11+ Maths to small groups and individuals for the last 8 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe that a teacher should mould their teaching style around the student's learning style. This is why I love teaching 1 on 1, and why progress can be made so quickly this way.

Personal Description:
Playing the Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo and Harmonica and creating traditional Fine Art have been and are a major part of my life. Much as I would have very much liked to do, I never had the opportunity to become a Professional Performing Musician or a fully Professional Fine Artist . I have performed in public of course, and held exhibitions, but very rarely on a professional/paid basis. I have been a guitarist for over 45 years and an artist for 23 years

I studied art at the Thanet Schools of Art & the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design (the same College David Bowie went to)
for two and a half years. After that I had a twenty two year absence from art.

A change came in 1992: It was during a period of Long Term Unemployment. Whilst signing on at my local Job Center, I volunteered to go on an "Employment Action Course. In a sense this was a form of working for your benefit and was paid an extra £10 per week on top of Job Seekers Allowance. Hopefully this would have lead to work prospects, ideally in Art or The Arts. I had to report to a work placement provider who asked me what skills I had, to which I said "Art" and was assigned to a local Community Arts Center based in Gillingham Kent and appointed as a publicity designer and resources worker.

Whilst in my publicity artist role I was introduced to the then K.C.C Arts Promotion Officer Jim Shean who took interest in my art work and arranged an exhibition hire space without charge at my local library, the event was covered on Radio Kent's "Scene & Heard" Program. I also contacted the local junior school where my children attended and made a proposition if I could exhibit there. In return the headmaster asked my to come into the School twice a week and teach the children art, this featured in a local press article.

Over the years from 1992 to date I have held numerous small one man exhibitions in the Medway Towns and a little further afield and have manged to sell some (just enough to pay a few bills). In the last year or so I have been a little inactive in my art but hope to resolve that soon.

Teaching Experience:

16 years freelance one to one teaching of Guitar - Mandolin - Banjo - Ukulele - Harmonica and Basic Keyboard
Currently a Children s reading assistant for the Beanstalk Charity Project

Tutoring Approach:

Being a music teacher has at least allowed me to put my love of music to a measure of professional application, perhaps to make up for the lost opportunity and time. Being paid is a motivation, but far more importantly teaching others to play and create music is much more enjoyable, I have often gone overtime on my lessons and never charged extra. Also to be considered is the experience gained over many decades of musical struggling, mistakes, embarrassing moments during performance and how to overcome them that I can impart to my pupils. I also look forward to the pupil making sufficient progress so that I can have the pleasure to "Jam" with them.

Personal Description:
-Graduated with a Masters Degree (2.1) in Civil Engineering from Loughborough University.

-This has led me to maintain excellent Mathematics and analytical skills which I apply to my tuition methods.

-Generally teach 1 to 1 but also able to cover 1 to 2 and small groups in any of the following subjects:

-Maths and English Primary Level including SATs
-11+ Entrance Exams (Kent/Medway) including all aspects of Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
-Maths Key Stage 3 (Year 7 - Year 9)
-Maths GCSE (Foundation, Higher, Linear/Modular)
-Maths IGCSE
-Maths A-Level

-As an Ex Grammar School student I have experience in sitting and passing the 11+ tests myself as well as a generally strong educational background (including strong A-Levels and excellent GCSE's).

-I am also happy to provide general UCAS, university and careers advice.

-Currently starting a tuition company.

Just give me a call to arrange a meeting to see if I can help.

Teaching Experience:

-Carrying out private tuition with over 60 students for almost 3 years in the following subject areas:

-Maths and English Primary Level including SATs
-11+ Entrance Exams (Kent/Medway) including all aspects of Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
-Maths Key Stage 3 (Year 7 - Year 9)
-Maths GCSE (Foundation, Higher, Linear/Modular)
-Maths IGCSE
-Maths AS/A-Level

-Success rate has been excellent across the board and references/CV are available on request.

-Typically GCSE students are helped to move at least one grade up compared to before tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

-I take a very methodical and structured approach to tuition. This starts with a careful observation and assessment of a students strengths and weaknesses.

-From there I workout the most suitable way to get them towards their goal and to improve general skills such as problem solving, speed awareness, exam/revision techniques, memory improvements etc.These methods have been tried, tested and refined.

-Topics taught are personalised to the individual students strengths and weaknesses as well as individual progress rate.

-Students motivation and confidence is another factor which is worked on continuously.

-A broad range of resources is used to keep work varied where appropriate and trying to teach independent working is a constant.

Personal Description:
My work history is unwaveringly intertwined with education, teaching a range of subjects, in a range of different settings, with students of all ages and abilities. I have over 15 years experience, the majority of my work has been at secondary level, where my specialisms are English and English Literature, Film studies and Drama. However, I also have extensive experience in primary education where I have taught across the breadth of the curriculum.

My preoccupation with academia was nurtured at a competitive Grammar School, RGS Worcester, a top school with high expectations. I excelled in this environment, always achieving the best academic results. I went on to acquire a first class degree. I remain now, as I have always been, a high achiever.

I also work in the creative arts, as actor, tutor and director, inspired by performance art in all its forms. My current artistic interests include revising classics, puppetry, theatre in non-traditional spaces, and working as a freelance drama consultant to help smaller scale theatre companies realise their artistic aims and consolidate their working practices.

Recreationally I enjoy martial arts, exercise and the outdoors. As an avid reader I am particularly drawn to epic literature and sprawling worlds, beguiling first person narratives, comparative religious and spiritual studies, psychology, philosophy and history.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience includes:

Secondary Level Education:
- I worked for 6 years as a secondary school teacher, delivering Drama and English lessons, including GCSE and 'A' level, from year 7- year 13.
-I devised and delivered a formal curriculum to teach Year 9 Drama (in line with Key Stage Guidelines).
-Extensive experience in coursework, marking, moderation and exam preparation.
-On 2 separate occasions, following Ofsted observations, I was given an 'Outstanding' classification (the highest classification).
-Quantitative end of term reports always placed my classes amongst the highest in terms of achievement and student retention.
-I also assumed responsibility for cross-curricular teaching, for instance, devising lessons about The Industrial Revolution which spanned History, English, Art and Psychology.

'A' level Education:
-I taught for 6 years at 2 different Further Education Colleges. I taught English Literature, Drama and Film Studies 'A' level.
-Students were offered extra-curricular tutorials to help them achieve their desired results according to their own set of educational needs.
-I emboldened students for university entrance with interview techniques, UCAS procedures and university level preparation.
-The coursework I devised with students for their final A2 Drama and Theatre Studies was picked up as an exemplar of excellent practice, and is still used to this day by Edexcel examination board as a standard to which other schools should aim.

Primary:
-Following my successes at Secondary Education the Local Education Authority sought my services to teach in 'special-measures' primary schools across the West Midlands region.
-I devised a range of workshops, and delivered these to selected primary schools. These workshops raised literacy levels, written and oral communication. They were delivered to year 4, year 5 and year 6 students.
-My work with Redditch Borough Council as Literacy and Outreach Officer earned me an 'Outstanding personal Achievement Award'.
- I have worked as a Supply Teacher in numerous London Primary Schools, teaching all subjects, cross-curricular.

Adult Education:
-I've worked with young people trying to get back into education following exclusion, this involved working with charities like CentrePoint.
-I often work with adult learners re-taking their GCSE English.
-Postgraduate students have sought my help in the past, particularly International Students looking to improve the precision of their essays.

Complex Educational Needs:
-I am trained in Advanced Behaviour Management.
-I have experience working with SEN and PMLD students.

University Level:
-Delivering Theatre and Drama lectures, seminars and workshops to students at university level, including The University of Birmingham, University of Worcester, University of Bristol, and University of Warwick.

Other Achievements:
- Community arts and education provision. Following successful Arts Council grants I set up 2 new community arts and education groups in the West Midlands. The aim here was to build permanent organisations to provide access to education, through the arts, for all, regardless of prior educational achievement. These 2 organisations, both of which are still running to this day, are now self-sustaining businesses, now staffed by people who were once students of the organisation.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring involves the mutual balance of 2 equally important intentions: a sensitive awareness of what a student needs, and establishing a conducive rapport.

I have a flexible communication style, informed by exposure to hosts of different students, I am adaptable and responsive, a necessity built on the recognition that effective learning can only happen when tutor and student understand each other, and are mutually inspired.

At first, my focus with a new student is to provide gentle provocations on different aspects of the subject matter- a process which allows me to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie, also allowing the student to start seeing the subject matter from varying perspectives, and to extend their range of problem-solving and communication strategies.

My approach always depends on the specific needs of the student, most commonly students ask for:
-Information building and comprehension
-Essay writing technique
-Filling in historical/ social/ political or cultural context to areas of study (particularly at 'A' level)
-Response to examination questions
-Improving literacy level, reading and comprehension, grammar (particularly at primary level)
-Extending and developing powers of expression
-Drawing links and developing argument
-Understanding what a question is asking
-The application of knowledge to argument

I pride myself, above all else, on my ability to engage my students. The subjects I teach I find instantly inspiring, and this love of the raw material is compounded by the fact that I genuinely care about the targets my students set for themselves. Each student is a project, and watching them improve over a programme of study is exceptionally gratifying.

You will find me a generous tutor, I am not a clock watcher, it doesn't matter, for instance, if a class runs over. I will work hard for you between lessons, marking, researching, and developing new lessons and academic exercises. I am always well prepared, focused upon specific needs of student, and always an authority on what I'm teaching.

My tutoring style is tempered by profound understanding and experience of examination board and national curriculum requirements. Moreover, my many years working as an educator entailed the need to develop a flexible range of teaching strategies correspondent to the varying learning preferences of my students.

Some recent feedback:
'I wish you had been my tutor before, I feel a lot more confident'
(Chitra, GCSE English, Adult Learner)
'Great attitude and rapport with my son very engaging'
(Sarah, mother of 'A' level; Film and Studies student)
'We are delighted to have Chris helping my daughter and her friend with the written exam In the last few weeks of their Drama and Theatre `A ` level. Inspiring, flexible, fun -knowledgable about the plays, their history and context- he is a fantastic tutor.'
(Felicity, mother of 'A' level Drama and Theatre Studies student)

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, compassionate and experienced tutor who delivers the best quality of one-to-one tuition in Maths.
I have recently graduated with a 1st Class Master's degree from the University of Sussex. I also have other interests such as Taekwon-do which I regularly do on a weekly basis.

My enthusiasm motivates students and gives them self-confidence to view me not only as their tutor, but as a role model, a friend and ultimately someone who will take a genuine interest in their learning and achievement.

Parents are very important in the support structure and therefore I include and work with all parties to ensure the best possible system for learning is in place. I create a tailored programme, in which a lesson plan can be followed and progress is monitored, to allow parents to be a part of the tuition process. I do this with care whilst listening and catering to the student's individual needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Maths tutor for about 3 years, tutoring many Primary, GCSE and A-Level students in this period.

A few of these have been from word-of-mouth, hence the reason for very little reviews. Each year brings fantastic results and I am yet to have a student dissatisfied with their successes.

I have 100% pass rate and one of my best successes in tutoring was a student that had improved by 3 GCSE grades. Most of my students after a year of tuition have increased by 2 grades.

I hold a full clean enhanced DBS check.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning happens when you are faced a problem and have to struggle to find an answer, so I help students to work out problems by providing them hints and guide them in the right direction by leading them through key concepts. I also break down questions which can be chunky into key bullet points for them to understand quickly and effectively.

My explanations are very clear and also have a calm personality. As well as subject content, I develop a student's skill in exam technique and time management in order for the student to perform well overall particularly in exams.

I can offer 2-hour block sessions at the weekend (if required) and 1-hour block session during the weekdays. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, unless in medical circumstances, and a one-month discontinuation policy either side if tuition is terminated.

Personal Description:
Although intending to pursue a career in teaching after University, I found myself embarking on a Musical journey instead. I have been lucky enough to travel to many parts of the World and have met many people from all different cultures and backgrounds. I believe that this has given me valuable experience in understanding people as individuals rather than as groups . Although still a professional music producer, I still have a passion for teaching and working with young people and so am now looking to use the life skills I have acquired to help where I can. I am creative, patient, calm and a very good listener.

Teaching Experience:

Working on-to-one with students who have difficulty reading and/or writing at Downland's Community School,Hassocks.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe every child has the capacity to learn but the established system is not always suitable for every individual in every subject. I intend to approach each child as an individual, and, to my best ability, make the learning process interesting and stimulating.

Subjects
  • Drama
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£12 p.h.)
