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

Teaching Experience:

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

Personal Description:
Unlike most tutors, I am a qualified and successful Physics teacher.

I am an experienced and fully qualified secondary school teacher in Science with a specialism in Physics. I have vast experience of tutoring from year 7 up to A-level and unlike other tutors I am also a qualified teacher who is currently teaching in the classroom. This allows me to be up-to-date with curriculum changes, coursework requirements and thorough knowledge of areas which students struggle with in all aspects of Science. I am also a six form school tutor which means that I understand the requirements for entry into six form and the UCAS process.

I am originally from Wales and have been living in North London for 14 years. I consider myself to be friendly and conscientious. Education is an important tool and I enjoy working with children and seeing them be the best that they can be.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a secondary school Physics teacher with 6+ years experience. I am also responsible for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) at my school. Both of my parents were teachers and tutors (Head of Department in Science and SENCO) whilst I was growing up. Therefore teaching and education have always been an important part of my life.
I am a teacher and have taught 11-19 year old students in three comprehensive mixed schools in various boroughs in London including Hillingdon Borough, Camden and Haringey.
I am currently tutoring a number of students to achieve their best in AS Physics (AQA/EDEXCEL/OCR board) and teaching A-level OCR Physics at school. I have vast experience teaching KS3 Science and KS4 every board.

Tutoring Approach:

Each child is different, so I like to design a plan after first finding out where the problems arise. Every child is different and I find that you cannot treat every child in the same way. I follow the syllabuses and specification, as these are my main tools as well as past exam papers........practice makes perfect!

It is great to see their confidence growing in the subject and hopefully their enjoyment!

Personal Description:
I am a professional actor and graduate from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and have been working in the private tuition industry for over seven years for various agencies, most prominently The Tutors Group. Before drama school I worked as a Primary School teaching assistant and drama teacher for two years, after graduating from King's College London with a 2:1 in my BA (Hons) English Literature & Language degree. I went straight to university from Norwich High School for Girls in Norfolk. So I have travelled all the way across England in my pursuit of study! I always wanted to tutor because I knew how I worked for all my GCSEs, A-Levels and my BA, and I was fed up with the media claiming exams were getting easier for kids: teenagers today work super hard, as I did! Tutoring older students also provided a lovely contrast to my Primary School teaching. I am also on the Directory certified teachers for LAMDA examinations.

Teaching Experience:

Dog Kennel Hill Primary School
Teaching Assistant and Special Needs Support
Oct 2008 - Present

During the morning session, I am currently working in a Year One class in this south London school and thriving on aiding the children specifically with their literacy, reading and speaking skills as well as exploring numeracy work.
I lead certain lessons including story time and circle time.
I support key groups of children within the class and am able to use my initiative to plan, deliver and assess their learning in order to encourage progression.
I have vast experience in creating my own resources using ICT, and creating artistic displays to proudly exhibit the children's work.
I have taken courses in Early Literacy Support, encouraging creative and inclusive teaching especially for children with English as an additional language and complex special needs children. I also have training in "Letters and Sounds" Phonics, and "A First Workshop on Autism".
During the afternoon session, I support a child in Year Two with Autism. I plan and prepare all his lessons, working towards targets which I and the class teacher have set for him; these include phonics, counting and social skills. I use music as a reward system for the boy, and his singing has greatly improved his speech quality and communication skills.
I have extensive training in Autistic Spectrum Conditions, undertaken with Southwark, covering various aspects including history, sensory integration and behavioural management.
I work with various children with complex special needs within school, including children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Galactosemia, and have worked closely with speech and language therapists and learning mentors.
I offer one to one support outside of lesson time in the form of music lessons for special needs children; I prepare and provide my own resources and find singing with my students extremely rewarding.
I am in the process of setting up an after-school drama club for Key Stage One students at the school, having directed the infant school Christmas play this and last year.
I have also spent time in Key Stage Two classrooms, focussing on aiding older children with their literacy skills: I particularly enjoyed aiding Year Six students in exploring literary themes and using appropriate critical vocabulary when studying children's literature.

Stage Coach Theatre Arts
Early Years and Drama Teacher
Jan 2009 - Present
I am currently working in the Beckenham Junction branch of Stage Coach: using games and prepared resources, I teach my Early Stages children elementary levels of dance, drama and singing, allowing them to develop their confidence levels both on and off the stage. I have written and directed several productions for the children to perform over the year, showcasing their talents to their proud parents.
Since September I have taken on the role of drama teacher for the elder children aged six to sixteen. Through games, improvisation and text work, my students are encouraged to enjoy and improve their passion and talent for theatre in an open and safe environment.


The Tutors Group
Private Tutor
Sep 2008 - Present
In contrast to my primary school teaching experience, my private tutoring allows me to help young people of an older age and greater intellectual development further their learning.
I teach English Literature and Language, History, Theatre Studies and Classical Studies, from Primary, to GCSE and A-Level, Degree level and beyond.
I aid my students in improving their essay structure, spelling and grammar and discussing key thematic and conceptual elements of their required texts.
I plan and prepare lessons and constantly assess students, ensuring they receive high quality tutorage.

Classroom Teachers
Teaching Assistant
Sep 2008 - Oct 2008
I received thoroughly positive feedback from the schools in which I temporarily taught in the weeks preceding my permanent employment at Dog Kennel Hill; colleagues reported me as reliable, enthusiastic and hard-working, and possessing excellent interaction skills with the children themselves.
I gained vast experience with nursery and reception children, thriving on working with early years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have worked as a private tutor for various agencies and also independently, leading my students through 11 plus, 13 plus, GCSE, A Level, Degree level and beyond. I teach English Literature & Language, Drama & Theatre Studies, History and Classics. I also have plenty of experience in working with much younger students (see my CV for details of my classroom and teaching assistant experience) with English as an additional language. I am a confident and enthusiastic individual, with an acute passion for teaching, and have been working with the Tutors Group for over 7 years now. I have worked as a teaching assistant in an Outstanding inner-city primary school, and before training at drama school was planning to take a post-graduate course in primary school teaching, a desire much encouraged by my class teacher and head of school. I have just graduated from my MA in acting at one of the most prolific drama schools in the country (Bristol Old Vic Theatre School); as an experienced dramatic performer and director, I enjoy effectively using these skills to aid children in their learning, leading to a warm, encouraging and happy learning atmosphere. I rapidly and easily create positive, personal relationships with colleagues and children, and believe education should be a creative and inclusive experience for all.

Personal Description:
I'm in my early fifties, am married with four children, the youngest of whom is still at home. I have 30+ years experience of teaching all ages from pre-school (I used to child mind) to A level and FE students. I have taught children aged 4-14yrs in an Independent Christian School and I have English GCSE to adults. I help people who have particular difficulties and those who just lack confidence. I help people to see their very real strengths and to build on them, showing them techniques for learning and improving their writing style, comprehension skills and spoken English in a way that suits them as individuals. I always make sure that whether or not you want to pass exams, the English you use is fit for whatever need you have - so if you just need help in speaking to Doctors and nurses in hospital, I can help with that or if you want to start at Uni I can meet your study needs too at whatever level. I am extremely passionate about education and have a purposeful approach which takes account of students' individual learning styles. I am happy to travel to you at a cost of 40p per mile but if you prefer to come to me, that's fine too.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in homes, Primary and Secondary Schools, Colleges and Community Centres. I have taught workshops on how to apply for a job as well as teaching English as a foreign language and even adults with learning disabilities. You can see from this that I am a teacher who loves teaching - education is my passion! I also love reading and researching so I can help people with dyslexia and other learning difficulties. I have been trained in this area and I have always taken opportunities to improve my teaching skills. My students are very proud of their achievements in exams etc but most of all they thank me for building their confidence and allowing them to work at a pace which suits them so that they really enjoy what they are learning. I have taught the Cambridge ESOL qualifications Using the CLT technique from the CELTA qualification which I gained last year) as well as GCSE English language and Literature. I have experience of teaching on the one to one tuition scheme in Primary schools as well as class teaching.My most recent experience is as Head of English in a school for children with moderate learning difficulties, especially autism aged 11yrs to adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to give personal attention to my tutees and to tailor the lessons to their needs but am happy to teach up to 3 people together to reduce costs if that helps. We work on Language skills such as pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar in ESOL lessons with plenty of practice for tests if needed and when studying literature at a higher level, I encourage my tutees to relate what they are reading to current issues and events in the world so that it is relevant and interesting for them. We have lots of fun but at the same time we work intensively, reading aloud to proof read and learning strategies for spelling, punctuation and organising essays etc. It is a great way to prepare for further academic study and I can help to prepare students for interviews or to give that all important presentation which could lead to promotion. We offer Home Stay at our home which is a riverside Victorian Railway station in the heart of particularly attractive countryside with visits to sites of Historical interest, practice with English speaking in our family from 350.00 /week negotiable according to visits selected.

Personal Description:
I am a professional and dedicated native English teacher with years of experience behind me.

Teaching Experience:

I have gained TEFL experience within varied teaching roles, both abroad and in the UK. In my previous roles I have worked with children, teenagers, and adults in companies, schools, and summer camps. I have taught General English, Business English, and exam classes to groups and one-to-one students in school and business environments. I also have experience of teaching students with dyslexia. This variety has enabled me to continually assess my style of teaching and keep me on my toes!

Working in such roles has given me crucial insight into the needs of the student. I am extremely patient and understand the frustration that can arise when learning, whether it is a new language or subject. I realise that people acquire knowledge through varied means so I am keen to adjust my teaching style to benefit my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a mature, responsible, and eclectic teaching approach, as well as a good sense of humour, is crucial for a successful learning environment.

I offer a custom-made service, whether you need to improve your general English skills, your writing, or simply build your confidence. I also have years of experience in teaching Business English and Exam English (IELTS/FCE/CAE). Whatever you need help with, I am happy to focus my lessons on what you require.

I offer Skype lessons and professional proofreading for people who may not be able to meet face-to-face.

I am available to tutor at your home, workplace, or in a quiet cafe in Cambridge. I can also tutor in Central London.

Personal Description:
Hello there, this is Clair here, I`m 24 and am currently undertaking a chemical research PHD in the field of materials chemistry at UCL. I graduated from my undergraduate Chemistry degree at UCL and prior to this I lived in Portsmouth having moved there from Malaysia when I was 13. This coming September I am in line to be secretary of the Chemical and Physical Society, UCL's oldest society.

Aside from Chemistry I am also like running, taking photographs, going to see art, films, music and learning more about the world around me e.g. economics, politics and sociology.

Teaching Experience:

In recent years I have been in junior schools working with children during their science practicals. I have also had regular work tutoring one to one and small groups of KS3-GCSE students and have also been called in to help particular A-level/BTEC science classes. At university I mentor to undergraduate students.

Tutoring Approach:

During our tutoring session we'll do the normal thing of going through past papers but also work hard at actual understanding of the concepts. With me you will be able to understand and enjoy complex scientific and mathematical ideas and consequently get the grades you want and deserve. Hopefully we can work together to make this happen.

Personal Description:
I'm an experienced professional maths tutor with a Cambridge maths degree, an abiding love for maths and a passion to help students discover and master maths for themselves!

I teach secondary school students at A-level (including IB and Cambridge Pre-U), GCSE (including IGCSE), Common Entrance and KS3. I also teach mature students, and university students requiring maths to support other degree subjects. I have prepared students for exams from all the major exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and OCR-MEI. I also prepare students for STEP and for numeracy or numerical reasoning tests, including the numeracy skills test for prospective teachers.

Two of my three children have been through school and university and one is still at secondary school, so I have been engaged closely with the education system at all levels and understand what both students and parents are looking for to achieve academic success.

My family and I have lived in Cranleigh for over 20 years and I have connections with a number of local schools.

Teaching Experience:

I have thousands of hours of experience of providing 1-1 maths tuition. At peak times in the year I have more than 40 active students on my books, spread across all secondary school levels up to A-level Further Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

More than almost any other subject, maths needs confidence to be built, and a patient, individually tailored approach. Able students may need practice to strengthen problem-solving and eliminate errors, a more joined-up view of maths to deepen their understanding, and challenge to stretch their capabilities. Others struggle to understand at a more basic level, and an imaginative and pictorial approach with plenty of real world examples is needed to achieve that "penny drops" moment!

Depending on the student, tuition may include any or all of: coaching to consolidate (or anticipate) teaching at school; revision for examinations; working through past examination papers; teaching and testing of specific sections of the curriculum; or more free-wheeling exploration of mathematical topics. By agreement with students and parents, homework may be set and marked.

I'm available to teach at any time in the week, either on weekdays (daytime or evenings) or at weekends. I'm happy to teach in my own home, or in students' homes in Cranleigh or up to 10 miles away in the surrounding area in Surrey and West Sussex, including Guildford, Horsham and Godalming. If teaching in students' homes I may agree an additional charge for travel if this exceeds 10 minutes each way.

I offer engaging and effective mathematics tuition at all secondary levels including A-level and GCSE. If you want to succeed in your exams and also to deepen your appreciation of mathematics and have fun, then get in touch!

Personal Description:
I am a friendly English male tutor, aged 60, retired from a career in IT, but with a life-long interest in the English language and its quirks. My interest in teaching languages developed from my own experience of learning Spanish, in particular practising with Spanish people and finding myself in turn explaining to them how English works ... !

Teaching Experience:

My experience of English teaching ranges from teaching young children with almost no English, to teaching adults with a very good level of English (but maybe not a good accent!) I also previously worked as an ESOL Adult Education tutor for Northampton Council.

My experience of teaching Spanish includes teaching friends and colleagues on a more ad-hoc basis, in addition to giving private tuition for small groups or individuals, usually beginners. My level of Spanish is sufficient to enable me to teach beginners, and my experience of teaching English together with the insights gained from my own Spanish classes together with my enthusiasm for the language enable me to teach in an interesting and effective way.

Tutoring Approach:

The initial level of skill and the target knowledge will vary for each person and it is vital to understand this as the first stage. Teaching needs to then be tailored to provide a gradual progression towards the targets. Classes must provide a variety of challenging elements, mixed always with a bit of fun or something "offbeat". What drives me is the enthusiasm to convey and explain my own fascination with language, whether English or Spanish.

Personal Description:
I am a retired police officer who has retrained as an EFL teacher. My main hobbies are keeping fit at the gym, music, reading, playing tennis, cinema, concerts and travel. As a person I am empathic, patient and kind. I am interested in current affairs both in the UK and worldwide.

Teaching Experience:

During my career I spent 5 years teaching IT in industry. As a police officer I spent 7 years in the Training Department teaching IT as well as Communications Skills, First Aid, Law and Force Policy.

Since retiring I have passed a CELTA course and have taught English in Vietnam for 3 months and Mexico for 4 months as well as a short contract in a high school in Austria. In the UK I have taught at a residential Easter School and two residential Summer Schools, teaching children and adults of all ages and from beginner to advanced level.

Tutoring Approach:

I apply to tutoring the same skills that I have used during my extensive time as a trainer - I motivate by encouragement, patience and praise, and use a teaching approach that will suit the learning style of my student. I also enforce strict deadlines and standards in order to maximise the learner's gain from the teaching time and to ensure that they use their study time wisely and efficiently. My attitude towards learners is that the only silly question is the one which they want to ask but don't, and that if they do not understand something then it requires me to explain it in a different way. I believe that if a learner enjoys their study they will gain a lot more from it, so endeavour to make lessons and tasks interesting and relevant.

Personal Description:
I am working in the NHS as a research unit co-ordinator. I have studied B.Sc in Biochemistry and have Masters degree in Biomedical science with management studies from Kingston university London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science in a secondary school as a science teacher. At present I tutor up to GCSEs. I have 5 years of experience of tutoring within the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

Good communication and interaction is the key to understanding and learning. I make sure that my student understands the topic before proceeding to the next one.
I would prefer students to have the right textbooks so that they can be given additional practice questions as homework. It will also enable the students to work independently.
At present, I tutor from home only.

Personal Description:
I have been a secondary school teacher for almost ten years, having experience of teaching from Year 7 all the way through A-Level. I am fully CRB checked (teachers require an enhanced CRB) and this can be provided upon request.

My results consistently outstrip national achievements both in Business Studies and ICT. I have been observed and graded at "Outstanding" by Ofsted on multiple occasions.

I have high standards and expect the same of my students, while maintaining a fun and relaxed approach to learning.

As a married father of a two year old boy who is already getting into IT(!) I know the importance of people having the necessary skills to succeed in the real world. More and more businesses now require "sound computer skills" before they'll even consider you for many posts.

I feel privileged to work in my current profession and am looking to extend that to others. I am a season ticket holder at Colchester United and, when I'm not teaching or being bored to death by the U's, I enjoy gardening, reading, travel and films.

Teaching Experience:

Six years at Holbrook Academy as Head of Faculty (2008 - date)
Three years at Philip Morant School teaching ICT & Business Studies (2005 - 2008)
Personal tutoring already completed

Tutoring Approach:

I have high expectations of my students and expect them to work to the best of their ability once they have the skills to succeed. I believe in independent learning and discovery but appreciate that my role as a facilitator and teacher is important to foster and develop theses skills in learners.

My students are used to developing their confidence through supervised tasks in such a way that they can tackle more complex problems later themselves. I will not do work for my students but I will work for my students so they can do it for themselves.

Personal Description:
I am currently a Nursing student in my 2nd year of study. I finished my A Levels in 2013 and spent two years working in a supermarket and Science Lab.
I play team sports when I am also in charge of charity work and a qualified first aider.

Teaching Experience:

I previously tutored science up to GCSE level while studying for my A Level examinations. Then after finishing school tutored many other core subjects at varying standards.
When coming to university I continued tutoring maths and basic study skills

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be individualised to the student and will take the time to adapt to their needs. I believe the best way to learn is to do and that everyone can learn when they feel confident.

Personal Description:
Semi-retired, experienced teacher who enjoys developing students as independent thinkers. Passionate about supporting people in reaching their goals. Patient and supportive. Current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching KS3 and KS4 Maths and Science in secondary schools; returning to teaching after working in industry where I extended my experience and skills in developing people to attain their personal and professional goals. Passionate about developing students to reach their maximum potential - I have experience in teaching, mentoring and supporting students across all abilities. Previous experience tutoring students in maths at both primary and secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether pre-GSCE and wanting to increase skills and confidence in maths, or working towards a GCSE and wanting to secure a higher grade - my approach is to understand the student as a learner to identify potential barriers to their understanding, and then building skills through practice to embed learning. I focus this within the context of what the student wants to achieve - the reason why they have sought-out help from a maths tutor.

Personal Description:
I am a high achieving MSc Civil and Structural Engineering graduate with excellent work and study pedigree. I graduated with Distinction from Coventry University, United Kingdom. I am currently carrying out a PhD research in Engineering in Coventry University. My experiences so far has enabled me to build a broad range of leadership and interpersonal skills. Therefore, I am able to manage challenging behavior and communicate effectively with people from diverse background.

Teaching Experience:

I have a strong passion for teaching mathematics, logical and quantitative reasoning concepts. My ability to grasps the basic ideas in maths have allowed me to excel in technical concepts in Engineering. I have an experience of teaching undergraduates through the support assistant role in the university. I have had a one-on-one experience teaching and supporting an undergraduate student with great success in his studies and research work. I am really desirous of further developing my skills as a tutor in mathematics. This will enable me to further build a strong career as a teacher and lecturer. I served as a maths and computer education teacher in a secondary school during my compulsory national youth service just after my graduation from the university. I have had the experience of learning and applying real life mathematics concepts of trigonometry and algebra as an engineer working in the construction industry. A typical example of this was in the development of survey data for the design of roads and in the preparation of bill of quantities.

Tutoring Approach:

As a maths tutor, I have the aim of creating in students the ability to understand the basic ideas in mathematics. I also do aspire to instill in students the confidence that aids excellence in problem - solving especially in examinations as well as in answering questions to unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that the capacity to grasps and retain the needed skills is to relate mathematics with real life experiences.This then easily creates the atmosphere for the development of real passion for learning and appreciating the subject. Hence, I do not strive to make the student quote the ideas and the notions involved in the subject, instead I encourage the student draw analogies. Even though my approach does vary depending on the needs and learning style of the student involved, I do aim to foster independence in the student by encouraging deep critical thinking. After teaching a particular topic in mathematics, my method of assessment is to test the student's understanding through additional problems and humorous games that relate to the topic. Also, in order to assess the level of my teaching strategy, I do request feedback from the student on a regular basis.

Personal Description:
I am currently an engineering undergraduate at Warwick University (entering second year on October). Having completed A Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Economics and achieving 4 As in these testing subjects, I believe I am equipped to teach these subjects at A level and maths and physics at GCSE, after achieving A* in both subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored my niece for the January 2017 iGCSE maths exam, mainly because she did not have a good teacher. With my help, she obtained an A*. I also tutored her for her additional maths and physics iGCSE, which she took in July 2017

Tutoring Approach:

I like to go through the whole course so the students are completely prepared for the exam. In addition, if there is time, I like to explain some concepts by going beyond the course (especially maths) so that the student is able to fully grasp these concepts. I inform them of mistakes that may be common with my peers when doing the exams, and as a result they are prepared for their exams. I also tend to focus on any topics that the student feels that they particularly struggle on, and provide them with plenty of practice questions thus ensuring the exam technique is correct.
