Personal Description:
For the last few years I have been supply teaching. In the main- short term contracts, usually to cover maternity leave or sickness etc. Before that I taught English as a foreign language in Barcelona. I have a TEFL certificate. I have recently returned from two terms teaching Physics to A level at the British School Tennerife. This was a maternity cover and included setting up the practical exam for the students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science in secondary comprehensive state schools for over 20 years. Ages range from 11 to 18 mixed ability, teaching physics to A level. I am an assistant examiner working for Cambridge International and marking A level physics papers. Also moderating Physics A level coursework for Edexcel.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutored for friends in the past. I am currently a serving teacher who marks exam papers and is therefore aware of the requirements demanded in exams. I teach the latest syllabus for the various key stages. I am very tolerant and patient with my students.

Personal Description:
My name is Duncan. I completed a Physics/Maths Degree in 1995 before researching for a PhD which I completed in 1999. I then worked for a government research laboratory and then a top-rated university research department. I have since moved into teaching as I find it more rewarding than research.

Teaching Experience:

I am a self-employed Maths Tutor and it is my main income. For this reason I am continually developing new resources for my students and continually developing my coaching skills. I am not a classroom teacher... instead I am a specialist one-to-one coach which requires very different skills.

I have a number of regular slots for long-term students (most of which are usually taken at any one time) and some capacity for one-off sessions (or a short series of sessions). I run a special "Exam Diary" from April through to June with extra sessions available for people looking for help in the lead-up to the summer exams. My actual availability varies... please contact to find out more!

I have experience of tutoring for A-level, GCSE Higher, GCSE Foundation and 11+/13+ for Maths (including C1-4, M1, S1, etc.).

In Summer 2012 one student surprised their class by getting a good grade at C1 (unlike the rest of the class) because the teacher had not prepared them for unusual questions (but I had prepared my student)... another student was raised from a U to a C at AS Level... and another student has gone up two sets at school within less than 12 months... one student got an A* and made it to Cambridge... and another student made it to Canford with a special recommendation in their acceptance letter for their maths. I cannot guarantee this level of success but believe I offer a "unique, unfair advantage".

I am also happy to offer support for all science subjects up to GCSE level (and I can also offer Physics A-Level support to my regular students).

Limited help is available to university students. However, generally this is difficult because subjects become so varied at this level that it can be difficult for me to know exactly what your course is looking for.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is three-fold...

First I aim to work on basic skills... these are the foundation of success in Mathematics. If you know how to do a really complicated question in A-Level Maths you can lose most of the points if you accidently do not rearrange the equation correctly at the start. This is really true.

Secondly I aim to work on topic-specific skills. I have customised worksheets (written by me) that include fake exam questions for most topics. For example, for C1, C2, C3 and C4 exams I have a set of questions for every topic that are not the same as previous questions in past papers... this is a significant advantage for my students as I have tried to anticipate likely questions that may come up that the examiners have not set in previous years.

Thirdly I will coach the individual student to better use their natural ability. This may mean boosting their confidence... it often (bizarrely) means lowering their confidence in their first answer (but increasing their understanding of how real mathematicians work) so they better double-check their answers as they go through and lose less marks in the exam. It may also mean developing memory tricks for key facts, approaches to understanding questions and some really nifty tricks for how to spot what the examiner is after.

Personal Description:
I am a very positive individual that likes to carry out tasks efficiently. I feel that I am a motivator that can relate to a diverse range of people from my experiences from travelling and working in a variety of environments also I have worked with children from different backgrounds and educational levels and with my specific tailored programme of study I can help your child excel beyond your expectations.

Teaching Experience:

I have relevant experience with GCSE and A-level students from one to one tutoring to small group teaching of up to 4. I also have taught English previously when travelling in Asia.

Tutoring Approach:

From my years of experience of tutoring I find that confidence is vital towards success, which I instill in all my tutees.

My style of tutoring is very interactive with visual aids and diagrams with clear concise logical explanations of concepts and theories of the topics to be taught.

My strategy involves building a solid foundation in topics with a step-by-step approach where the basics are covered to ensure that at advanced stages, the tutee can excel.

If the tutee is unclear with a certain problem, breakdown of the problem into individual steps and working though each step with the tutee until the answer is derived to ensure clear understanding in approaching and conquering problems.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my Ph.D, which was about the philosophy of folly in Shakespeare's plays.

Whereas English Literature, Language and Philosophy are my primary disciplines, I have also taught German and History up to A-Level standard. I graduated with a First Class degree in English Literature and received a high distinction for my Master's degree, which were both from London University. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, which means that I am qualified to teach at university-level.

My ultimate objective is to teach and research at university level. I am a keen individual, who values the arts and humanities. I believe education is not simply a means to an end; rather, it offers exciting and new ways of thinking about ourselves and the world around us.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is fairly extensive and I have taught both in this country and abroad.

For the last two years, I have lectured and led seminars at Royal Holloway, University of London; I have also continued to teach A-Level and GCSE students English, Philosophy and History as I have done since 2009.

In 2010, I designed and taught a course for American university students, which was called "British Culture". This course was, in essence, an history of ideas in this country from the Roman invasion to the present.

My work has been published in major academic journals and my thesis is currently under consideration by publishers. At the other end of the spectrum, as an undergraduate, I worked as a teaching assistant in primary and secondary schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I realise that at Key Stages 1,2, and 3 the emphasis needs to be on passing exams. At this level, I aim to provide an entertaining and relaxed session, which remains focused on providing and reinforcing the information required to pass an exam.

I hesitate, however, to say that my style is informal. I believe that when instructing younger children a certain amount of structure is required. This does not mean that the session needs be short-sighted; rather that we focus on a structured approach to attaining goals in an interesting and fulfilling way. At the higher levels and for mature students my approach is more relaxed.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and passionate graduate from Oxford University with a love for languages. Having achieved a first class degree in French and Linguistics, I am keen to pass on my knowledge and love of language and literature to other students. I completed a research Masters in West African French literature, and am currently pursuing my studies in the second year of my doctorate whilst also developing my teaching experience. I hold a TEFL qualification and have taught a wide range of students in France, Brazil and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL teaching:
- Beginner and Intermediate classes at International House London as part of training. Highly commended.
- Part of a student-led initiative in Oxford to teach English to low wage workers. We organised evening classes for international adult students of multiple levels of proficiency.
- Teaching experience in Wizard and ERTE schools in Bahia, Brazil.
- Private tutoring for GCSE student as well as adults learning French.
- English tandem learning with advanced adult learner from China: conversational and written English.

British council:
- English teacher for 11-16 year olds in Laval, France in 2009-10. Planned and delivered English lessons focussed on speaking and listening, current affairs, and reading skills.

Warwick University:
- Teaching first and second year students in French language and literature as part of my PhD.

Primary school:
- Teaching assistant 2006-7 in Garden House School, London. Prepared and assisted lessons for year 1 pupils, as well as organising timetables and caring for students. Involved some special needs assistance.

Youth work:
- Worked as part of two youth work teams over 3 years to organise activities and teach teenagers aged 15-19.

Mentoring:
- Reading programmes with younger students struggling with English language.
- Advised and assisted GCSE and A-level students in preparation for exams and applying for higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

Depending on the individual needs of each student, I will prepare a range of tasks to build confidence in specific areas of weakness. From past experience, a lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers to learning, so in all cases I seek to reassure a student of existing strengths and abilities before and during our tuition. More generally, we will develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through different activities to strengthen and accelerate ongoing language learning. Where appropriate/desired, I will bring in relevant texts and materials to develop broader reading building up analytical and critical skills. Grammar work will always feature, though in well-balanced chunks which aim to be accessible AND enjoyable!

Most importantly, I hope to inspire students of any level to relish and enjoy their studies, and to yearn for a more solid grasp of their subject and a higher proficiency in each area of language learning.

Personal Description:
I work in London as a research manager and teaching Mandarin is my personal interest. I enjoy helping my students achieve their goals and seeing them enjoy learning a new language. As an old Chinese saying goes "teaching and learning are reciprocal and should develop at the same time", I always teach with great passion. I live in St Albans and would prefer to teach in nearby areas.

Teaching Experience:

Over 7 years of part time teaching experience, from teaching primary and secondary school students to adult learning groups. Experience of working with young children of different cultural backgrounds and designing lessons to suit individual needs.

Mandarin teacher at Cranfield University community center (15 students) 2009
Individual tutoring 2008-2015

Tutoring Approach:

It's important to keep students interested but I have to say I am a strict tutor as I believe language learning requires a certain level of commitment. Chinese is not an easy language to pick up and I'd like to see my students try their best once they decide to begin this process. Of course I will try my best to help!

Personal Description:
I'm a native Italian. I've been living in England for the last 7 years, I love languages and teaching. I studied Finance & Economy with foreign Languages ( English, French and German).
My professional ambition is to contribute to the promotion of Italian culture: teaching my native language is the way that suits me better in reaching this goal! :)
Either if you're planning a holiday to Italy, are simply passionate about the language or need to prepare for an exam, all my knowledge will be at your service! :) I'm also available for translating and interpreting.

Teaching Experience:

I come from a family of teachers! While I was in Italy I taught English to many people on a regular basis. Apart from that I have always taught English to foreign students ( it' around 11 years now! ):this has improved my deep understanding of grammar...so that common mistakes can be avoided.
I also taught Italian for 6 years now, I do translations for newspapers, magazines and books on a daily basis.
I have a broad field of experience in:
-Tourism
-Art & History
-Economy
-Finance
-Medicine

So if you're inspiring to learn or improve your language for your job, you've definitely come to the right place!

Last but not least, I will ensure whatever your level is you will be able to speak and understand the language as never before! I'm aiming to do that in the shortest time possible as your time is very important. :)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to consider each student as unique and aim to understand their goals and ambitions as well as optimizing my teaching method to suit their individual needs.

I believe that an important part of learning a new language is to understand and embrace the culture as well.

I usually start my program with a short test to check "Your Learning Method" (this test is applied in the most famous and important schools of language all around the world)

Everybody is different! :) there are people who learn with games, others who learn just listening, others who love writing to remember and people who learn visualizing or listening to music.... Whichever your method is, let's learn with fun!


Each Student will benefit from a Personalized learning plan.

Personal Description:
Hello fellow mathematicians!

I'm Chris, a 23 year old maths PhD student at Brunel University. I was originally granted a School Studentship to fund my studies but then soon after starting my research I was upgraded to an ESPRC grant. I study maths because I enjoy it, and enthusiasm to teach it comes part of this package. For A-level and higher I specialize in pure maths, so algebra, calculus etc so if you happen to be struggling with areas such as these then I'm your guy. Any level lower than A-level I will also be happy to help with.

I do not have a current CRB check but I'm sure I could get one if it is needed - I haven't commited any crimes trust me.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst in 6th form and during my undergraduate years I often went back to my secondary school to help out in the maths department.

For the past academic year I have taught many seminars for foundation, 1st and 2nd year undergraduates. These have ranged from 2-100 students per seminar.

I tutored in the Maths Cafe which is to aid student's revision before their summer examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

Since I only graduated a year ago, I understand and can relate to difficulties students may face. With this in mind, I can offer the best form of tutoring in a way that I feel would have definitely helped me.

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 constants 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 private tutor for over 5 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 15 - 20 students on a weekly basis.

I have tutored university students attending Russell group universities such as Queen Mary and Warwick and have taught GCSEs and A-levels across all major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and iGCSE. Additionally I have had students admitted to prestigious private schools such as Eltham College and Bromley High after excelling in their 11+ exams.

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, we then continued to work together to secure an A grade at GCSE

- 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.

- Academic Year 2015 - 2016 I help a student who had achieved a B in AS Economics go on to achieve an A* in A2 Economics with a 95% average across the unit 3 and 4 exams.

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 education 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 an enthusiastic teacher of English with a vast experience in the field of English and English Literature, Drama, Media, SEN and TESOL. I also have extensive experience in speech therapy, working with SEN children and ESOL requiring individuals.
I am currently on leadership and a governor status. I am involved with Ofsted and other agencies to improve both pupil learning and teacher training.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English and |TESOL both in the UK and abroad for the last 15 years.
I am qualified to each at all stages of the English education curriculum including EYFS , KS1-2, KS3-4-5, to an academic level.
Currently, I am teaching the English curriculum in Sunderland, (North East, UK) but also offer tuition to children and individuals of all levels and through Skype and at my home.
Subjects taught vary as i have also taught Greek, Maths and Humanities up to KS4 despite my specialism being in English and Drama.

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor on a 1-1 basis, group basis, online and distance learning. I visit houses but due to my busy schedule, massive bookings and the client request to fit everyone in, I mostly tutor in my house; parents can stay with their children whilst tutoring or finish off their own work; internet facilities are available along with refreshments.

On weekends I hold group classrooms with KS2 and KS3 children so they can interact and practise their speech and social skills.

Personal Description:
I've just finished a position as a researcher in pure maths at Lancaster University, and will be based in Bellshill, near Glasgow, and available to tutor in the area between mid-March and September, when I'll move to Clermont-Ferrand in France to start a new research position. Before Lancaster, I completed a doctorate in mathematics at Oxford.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience tutoring Mathematics at the Standard Grade, Higher and Advanced Higher levels (Scottish equivalent of GCSE and A-level), and at AS and A-level. I have also been a teaching assistant and college tutor for several undergraduate Mathematics courses, across a number of topics in algebra and analysis and at all levels, at Oxford. In addition to this teaching experience, I have also assisted in giving undergraduate admissions interviews in Mathematics at Oriel College, Oxford, and so would be able to help students wishing to apply to Oxford in the nature and content of undergraduate maths interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach in tutoring is oriented around the student: their expectations, background knowledge and way of thinking; and what they see as most important to focus on, be it a particular part of mathematics, or a certain type of problem. While it is useful and necessary for students to be familiar with certain recipes and templates for solving different types of problems, ideally, the aim is to give them a deeper understanding of the ideas behind the material they learn and the problems they are set. This provides a much firmer basis for an appreciation of mathematics and a greater problem solving ability.

Personal Description:
My name is Jing, I was born in a city close to Beijing. I have lived in the UK since 2001 and I have British citizenship. I attended a UK based university where I attained a "Master Degree" in Business Administration. Whilst living and working in mainland China, I also attended a university where I attained a first degree in electronics. I am a middle aged lady with a wealth of experience. I have held senior management positions in a diverse and wide range of businesses and industries. If you are wanting to learn Mandarin or may be need some help with English / Mandarin translations or consultant to help you with your negotiations when dealing with Chinese business people, I would be pleased to be of service.

Teaching Experience:

I have been very successful working as a "Fee Lance" tutor and operating as a management consultant, where my services have been used in Chinese/English translations and also representing companies on a consultancy basis, when senior English speaking executives were dealing with Chinese business people around the negotiating table. In China I was employed by an electronics manufacturer as a manager, dealing with import & export on a daily basis. In the past I was also privileged to be chosen to teach English Students about China and Chinese culture.

Tutoring Approach:

When teaching mandarin, I prefer a "One on One" tuition basis.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about teaching English and love helping those who struggle just as much as stretching those who find it easier. I have 17 year teaching experience and in that time, have taught children up to the age of 13; helping older children prepare for 13+ Public School Entrance exams as well as teaching younger children to master phonics, basic reading skills and spelling. I am an experienced SATs marker enabling me to help children to prepare for these exams. I have worked closely with learning support departments in order to support and extend those children with difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. I have achieved part one of a Diploma in Teaching Children with Specific Learning Difficulties. I also have a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language which means I have an in depth knowledge of English grammar as well as an understanding of how teenagers and adults learn.

I am an avid reader and writer but a mum to a reluctant reader so I understand how difficult it can be to get children to read. I do, however, believe that there is something for everyone.

Additionally, I can teach French and German. I have taught them both to GCSE level and studied both languages to degree level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 17 years and was most recently a teacher of years 5 to 8 English and French at a well-respected private school for children aged 5 - 18. Prior to that I taught at an independent prep school where I was a class teacher as well as a member of the Senior Management Team and Head of Girls' Games. I have an excellent understanding of all aspects of child development and the need to make learning meaningful and fun. I am passionate about reading as well as all types of writing and am a member of the National Handwriting Association. I am also able to include IT in the classroom when necessary.

Tutoring Approach:

This depends entirely on the needs of the child. After an initial consultation, I would be able to offer support with reading and comprehension and/or writing (whether it be handwriting or speed of writing - or both). It might be a case of helping your child to understand English grammar as well as teaching them techniques to enable them to include it effectively in their own writing. If it is a case of preparing for forthcoming exams, then this can be done by using past papers as well as my own materials devised after extensive experience of helping children prepare for all types of exams. You may just want some extra support for your child over the summer and prior to the start of a busy new term. Whatever it is, it will be done with empathy and enthusiasm.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Steph. I'm a native German and have lived in the UK for the last 13 years. I have a First-Class Degree in International Management (a university course which combines Foreign Languages and Business Studies) from the Hochschule Bremen in Germany and Westminster University in London. I am a mum to two young girls and I worked in marketing for several years before I had my children.
I have a passion for languages and speak four languages including my native German. I love different cultures and have travelled the world extensively.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a wide range of age groups and language skills in Germany and the UK. I have extensive personal experience learning foreign languages having studied three languages at school and have continued to do so during my university studies and recently taking part in an adult learning class to refresh my Spanish. I understand that different people benefit from different teaching methods and that having fun while learning is beneficial to the learning process.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is relaxed and friendly. My aim is to focus on the student's needs and to make language learning an enjoyable experience. I adapt my teaching style to the age and interest of the learner, and to the needs and purpose of the learning. I can focus on conversational German only if that's your priority or go through all the elements from grammar training, reading, writing to listening and speaking.
I teach the German language across all levels.

Personal Description:
My name is Ellie and I am currently a university student at Oxford Brookes University, in my fourth year. I am native English however grew up in Spain and lived there for 12 years before coming to university, therefore am considered to be completely bilingual. I have availability for classes weekdays and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

I spent one year tutoring in Spanish with two primary school children who were English and had just moved to Spain therefore had little knowledge of the language.
I also worked at a Summer camp teaching English to Spanish children aged 3 - 15

Tutoring Approach:

I believe conversation is very important when learning a language as the true ability to speak a language is learnt through conversing with people of that nationality. I like my classes to be relevant and fun yet at the same time challenging.
