Personal Description:
My name is Matthew and I am an experienced mathematics tutor up to GCSE Level. I hold a 2:1 degree in Engineering and a post graduate diploma in strategic Business Information Systems from University of East London. I hold a full CRB check which is available on request.

Teaching Experience:

I am presently working as a Mathematics cover teacher in one the community schools in London and I am very passionate about my subject. I got into teaching to make a different in young peoples lives and to help inspire young people towards further education. I have successfully tutored many GCSE students and their remarkable result speaks for itself. I Love challenges; one of which is to help students with special needs to achieve their best possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I undertakes a motivational approach to teaching. Experience has taught that most students lack confidence in their ability and often under rate what they already knew. I often start by assessing my students and creating a learning log of their strength and weakness. This enables me to set target and bench-marks on what we need to learn, how best we need to learn and how much we need to learn. However, I am very flexible, friendly and a realist.

Most of my tutees are learners of Greek as a foreign language (GFL) or MSc students at the University of Edinburgh (where I'm based) and other universities (via online tuition) who need help with Latin/Ancient Greek/Modern Greek for their undergraduate/postgraduate course. I have also worked on GR-EN translation/localisation/web content writing projects and as a proofreader/checker for MA dissertations and PhD Theses. All in all, ''it's all Greek to me''!

Personal Description:
For the last four years I have worked full time as a tutor but have tutored alongside studying for seven years. I am a graduate of Durham (BA History), and UCL (MA Central and South Eastern European Studies).

My main areas of interest are humanities and languages and I am an enthusiastic and passionate communicator. I currently hold a DBS check certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced tutor, having spent the past seven academic years tutoring a range of subjects, and have a passion for teaching and communication. Having been a part time participant of mainstream education until recently, and having tutored many different pupils at different levels in different subjects in that time, I have a clear understanding of the structure of current A-Level courses and the necessary requirements. I have a very high success rate with many of my pupils achieving the highest grades and all demonstrating a marked improvement since tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring approach to the tutee's needs and the subject being taught. Generally, I do a combination of exam technique, subject revision and coursework support. I have made many an amusing yet educational quiz and strongly encourage pupils to achieve the best grade possible.

Please also note: Tutoring is my sole occupation and consequently I require at least 24 hours' notice for cancellations otherwise I have to charge in full for the missed lesson.

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.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Annie and I am a nineteen year old student. I study French and Italian at University College London and am entering my second year. I have just received a high 2:1 in my end of year exams.

Teaching Experience:

As a language student I've done a lot of volunteering, mainly helping out in the younger years' language lessons at school doing oral and grammar work, but sometimes helping out my parents' friends' children in their preparation for GCSEs.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very enthusiastic about foreign languages and have knowledge of French, Italian and some German. I strongly believe that the world is only as big as the languages you speak! I'm very flexible with when and where lessons take place, though weekday evenings and weekends work best for me. I live in a maisonette in Camden with a light and spacious dining area where it will be possible to have lessons.
I'm prepared to tutor from complete beginner with no previous knowledge up to GCSE level. If you are a student at primary or secondary school, I'm happy to do lessons that help with your school work or target any specific weaknesses you feel you have. Alternatively, I'm also happy to decide what we cover myself. I'll teach oral/conversational classes, vocabulary and grammar.

Personal Description:
I am a student at Queen Margaret University, studying Speech and Language Therapy. I was born and raised in Greece, where I completed my first degree in Communication and Mass Media. I also have an HND in Healthcare and an HNC in Web Design and the CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English). I am enthusiastic about teaching, passing my knowledge onto people who are willing and/or in need of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring Greek and Ancient Greek as a part-time job back home since 2008. I have been engaged in preparing high school students for their national finals with quite satisfying results. I have also been tutoring children and adults about to undertake an English as a foreign language exam (IELTS, CPE, etc).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring a person creates a special bond with them, based mainly on trust. I adapt my tutoring techniques to fit each individual's needs. I use movies, poetry and literature for people who don't want to be bothered with textbooks. I feel that learning should be an ongoing and personalised process.

Personal Description:
Qualified teacher with experience in private and state schools. Education is my passion and I will always go the extra mile to get the very best out of my students.

I work as a Senior Youth Worker on the side for Hornsea Town Council; do work with Bridlington Youth Club and also work with children in care.

Spare time is a luxury but I love volunteering and helping kids to be kids! (With lots of subliminal learning taking place unbeknownst to them!)

I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction novels. Notable authors include Robin Jarvis and Terry Pratchett.

Teaching Experience:

"Your lessons are like magic" - the moment a Year 3 child at the end of our Latin lesson said this is a moment etched in time firmly within my mind. Knowing that I was and continue to have a positive impact on someone's life and education is mind-blowing and it is from this where I gain true satisfaction from teaching and the desire to keep going; to keep helping and to keep being that rolemodel for future generations of children.

I have had teaching experience in the state sector as well as the private sector. Primarily, my teaching has been focused in the Early Years. I have also taught in Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and a little bit of Key Stage 3. I am quite fluent in all Primary subjects with a specialism in English; Phonics and Latin which I have taught to Year , Year 7 and Year 9.

Tutoring Approach:

I like my lessons to be FUN.

I know if my lessons truly engage the learner, I know I am going to succeed even before the lesson has started.

I like to take time to really get to know my students to encourage deeper learning. I like to challenge; motivate; inspire and really go for gold. My expectations are high and I expect the very best.

Personal Description:
I am a Polish native speaker who did a degree in Spanish at the University of Sheffield. I am passionate about foreign languages and I have some experience in teaching/ tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching Spanish, English and Polish for about 6 years now. I used to teach adults in a Further Education Centre ( Polish and Spanish) and I helped in MFL department in a secondary school in Leeds.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to tailor my lessons to learners' individual needs nad make it fun as it helps memorising new vocabulary. In my opinion learners should be immersed in new language/ culture as much as possible, therefore I always use videos, podcasts, DVDs and try to get my students to speak.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable and professional tutor with extensive experience and an excellent track record for enabling students to achieve the grades that they want. With a background in molecular biology, I tutor biology and chemistry students of all abilities.

I like to recommend an informal telephone conversation or meeting before commiting to a course of tuition. This is the best possible way for me to understand your needs and for you to decide whether my approach to tuition suits you.

I am more than happy to provide references from my previous clients.

Teaching Experience:

I have diverse experience of working in education and have recently finished working for the European Journal for Science Teachers. When I'm not tutoring, I work for a science education charity, working closely with teachers.

I take a tailored, focussed approach to my tuition, aiming to give students not only the knowledge, but also the confidence, that they need to tackle exams and coursework.

Personal Description:
I'm a flexible, energetic and dynamic tutor offering lessons in English, Violin and 11+ to students from primary age to A-level and beyond. I have a passion for English literature and music, and I love to teach.

As I have been finishing my PhD, I have gradually been taking on more pupils for private tuition. I specialize in bringing the academic study of English to life for school students by combining a dynamic and accessible approach with the exciting ideas and research I have experienced at university level.

Teaching Experience:

I have a range of classroom and 1-to-1 teaching experience. As an English tutor, I have worked with a range of students from primary to PhD level. I am experienced at preparing students for exams, 11+ and university entrance, including intensive revision work to prepare students for a particular exam.
I have also delivered the GCSE English curriculum to a home-schooled pupil as her only English teacher. At the University of St Andrews, I was employed for 3 years as a tutor for undergraduate students in the English and Music departments. Through my tutorials on essay writing skills, I was able to significantly improve the marks of my cohort of students, and I teach the same techniques to my pupils at school stage. After qualifying with the widely recognized CELTA certificate in English Language Teaching, I spent several summers teaching English language to classes of children and teenagers aged from 10 to 18.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning with a tutor can be much, much more fun than learning in school! And since literature is all about life, learning to critically read and interpret literary texts, whether at GCSE or undergraduate level, will open your eyes to look at the world in a new way. I love the fact that through my experience of university life as a student and teacher, I can fast-track my school-aged pupils to the skills and ideas they'll need at university and beyond. The study of English literature at university is a different world to that at school - I wish I had known at school how rich and interesting the subject was. Through my teaching, I aim to inspire my students not only to understand and appreciate the great works of literature that they study, but to use them to understand big ideas about history and society.

I am also keenly aware of the requirements of the various exam boards, and I tailor my approach to developing skills to excel in particular exams and beyond. I particularly enjoy preparing students for exams such as GCSE and A-level, and I am equally at home providing challenging debate to stretch the most gifted and talented pupils, or inspiring enthusiasm in students who want to improve their grades. One of the best things about private tuition is seeing my pupils develop their confidence, whether in musical performance or tackling the big ideas in works of literature.

As a violin teacher, I love to teach beginners of any age, but particularly young children. My lessons are lively, interactive and engaging, developing all-round musical ability in a way that is fun and motivating. I can also act as a practice buddy for any instrument, and assist with reading music, sight-reading, music theory and aural training skills.

I've lived and worked in England for many years, and I have a solid experience as a Spanish and Italian teacher. I am able to teach from beginners to GCSEs and A Levels. I can teach online by Skype.

Teaching Experience:

Director of Spanish-Courses-Argentina / School, in Buenos Aires, Argentina 2013-2015
Spanish Tuition at Parkside Federation - Cambridge, CB1 3RJ - UK 2009-2012
Spanish & Italian Tuition at Hills Road Sixth Form College, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 8PE 2006-2012
Spanish & Italian Tuition at Impington Village College, Impington, Cambridge, CB24 2001 - 2012

Tutoring Approach:

by recreating an environment according to the target language, using Spanish all the time and lots of visual material, such us pictures and board games. Grammar comes gradually without the student notices. Top Levels, such as A Levels + , grammar has an important role, in these cases I use more reading, writing, and grammar exercises to improve speaking and writing. My target consists in having a relaxed and friendly communication among students and myself, and enjoyable experience!

Personal Description:
Being academically focused myself, I am confident in being able to motivate and teach through a variety of methods that hopefully excite my tu-tee. Through secondary, I thrived generally in most, if not all subjects. Maths, however, will remain my favourite. I am enthusiastic about teaching and I hope to prove my ability to engage students and guide them on their educational paths.
I am particularly flexible in that I am open to on-line tutoring through Skype if need be.

Currently I am studying Maths, Physics, Latin and Art at ALEVEL.

Teaching Experience:

I've voluntarily taught temporarily at Southfields Primary school, where I taught English.
I volunteer at Sidney Stringer Academy at the Maths GCSE re-take classes for students who are struggling to pass their Maths GCSE at a grade C or above.

Tutoring Approach:

Having recently undergone the exams myself, I feel I'm in the most suitable position to advise current students on how to cope with the content of the constantly changing exam syllabus and exam format. My teaching methods will vary depending on how I assess the student is coping with the subject. If the student learns visually, for example, I can direct them to a range of videos, or even create some myself to suit their learning.
good organisation is key to organising the content both on paper and in your head. As an extremely organised person, I can properly advise students on how to manage their workload to maximise the efficiency of their working.
Different people take different amounts of time to grasp certain concepts and I am open to facilitating their needs.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (9 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (9 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a highly qualified maths and physics tutor with a keen grasp of the subject knowledge and a thorough understanding of the practice of learning. I am professional in the way I treat my clients and provide an expert tutoring service. My previous experiences allow me to connect with a wide range of pupils, allowing the kind trust required for a positive learning environment.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a maths teacher in 2004 and began tutoring in 2006. Since then I have taught students from age 9 to 40, and taught primary level up to first year degree maths and physics. In 2016 I became an examiner for OCR, marking exam papers.

Tutoring Approach:

I mainly seek to fill in the gaps in students' knowledge in the subject, using and teaching, techniques and methods for absorbing subject knowledge, and passing exams.
I build a solid relationship with the pupil and create an atmosphere conducive to learning. I tailor the structure of the lessons to the individual needs of the student both at a long term level and within each lesson. We might work through topics that the student is weak in, or start new topics, review and practice exams, or discus meta-exam technique, as required by the situation. I follow the National Curriculum closely, and make heavy use of specimen and past exam papers for GCSE/A-Level candidates.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable young adult. I love teaching and making a difference to children's education and lives. Maths is my preferred subject but I love to teach science too. I am qualified to teach and started my NQT year but I have decided to take a break and to gain some skills during this time. I am hoping to tutor for a long time.

My availability says I am free all of the time. I am taking a lot of agency work at the minute so may not always be free weekdays during the day but sometimes I will be.

Teaching Experience:

Trained to teach maths. 1-2 years experience. Teacher assistant experience and tutoring before teaching. Experience in SEN, BESD and mainstream schools.

Tutoring Approach:

First session to get a general idea of where I can best help then plan sessions according to previous session. Create a personal learning checklist to structure sessions and build up confidence.

I also offer group sessions of 2-4 students charging a total of 30 for the group. Just let me know if you're interested in this.
