Personal Description:
I am a jovial person who enjoys the vocation of teaching; I love to see the light go on in a learner. I am an Englishman abroad and wouldn't change where I live for a moment.

I am a keen musician (very amatuer) and my limited spare time is spent in my home studio mucking about and not getting anything actually achieved. I also enjoy the restoration of my house and garden which, like the Forth bridge, will never be finished!

I am a dog owner and nature lover and have a broad teaching style; I prefer the learner to dictate the style and I find the methods to fit.

Please feel free to ask questions.

Thank you

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for over 20 years which culminated in a Head of Dept roll for 5 years (Business Studies). I have been very fortunate in my career to have taught all age groups many different subjects. I have returned to mainstream secondary education, teaching Business Studies and ICT following A level ICT at Coleg Menai and tutition for Single parents (charity) which has provided me with different skills and approaches rather than just formal classroom led instruction.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a holistic type and I always want the learner to be happy with an answer they give and know "why" the answer is correct. I hopefully bring humour (debatable) and a wide variety of methods to my teaching along with contemporary examples.

At present I am available in the evenings (Mon to Thurs, 5 to 8).

Please note that my prices include no additional travel expenses up to 15 miles from my home and I am perfectly happy to offer group discounts - the more learners the cheaper the individual cost.

Thanks for looking.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher with over thirty years' classroom experience in both Primary and Secondary schools. I have taught in UK state schools as well as overseas.

Throughout my years in schools both home and abroad I have tutored Primary, Secondary and Adult students as a vocation as well as to supplement my income.

Teaching Experience:

My experience includes 12 years teaching English and History to GCSE and A level in the UK secondary system and eight years teaching the same subjects to the same levels in international schools in Italy, Egypt and Kenya.

During this time I have always had a number of students on my books for home tuition to provide extra help in Primary, Secondary and University level subjects.

My English GCSE students last year all achieved A-C grades and my A level History student achieved an A (predicted C after Year 12) and is now at university. In previous years, my A level History students have never achieved less than a C and in 2014, I had a student who reached A* and is now studying the subject at Exeter University.

Tutoring Approach:

In my long experience of tutoring I have seen the benefits in aptitude and confidence that pupils can gain from one-to-one tuition. In the unique one-to-one situation the teacher can inspire pupils to begin at last to see the relevance of subjects they find difficult to grasp in a high-pressure environment like school.

Once the pupil sees the need to master the subject I take them on to the next stage where they can undertake tasks which build up their confidence. It is also a means for me to ascertain what the pupil's strengths are and to build on them.

The next stage is the slightly more painful one of identifying weaknesses and gauging the pupil's awareness of them and motivation to put them right. Once the student and I have agreed which areas need improvement we use lesson time to extend competence and skills by undertaking thinking and written assignments that allow the student to develop these.

Any homework set will advance and reinforce the skills the pupil has been encouraged to bring to the lesson.

Personal Description:
I am now retired from teaching but have continued to tutor since. I am confident in my ability as a tutor encouraging students to achieve their best.

I will tutor up to 3 students at the same time at a reduced charge per student providing they are taking the same examination.

Beyond 12 miles I will need to charge an additional £5.

Teaching Experience:

I have been in education for 33 years teaching mathematics and computing for many of these years as well as being IT manager at a school in recent years.

I have a very good knowledge of Entrance examination requirements.

I have also tutored on one to one basis successfully for several years in the past and tutored successful many students to success in past 4 years. I often get repeat business where I have taught GCSE and been retained for A-level teaching or taught their brother or sister as well. All A-level students I have taught have successfully obtained their place at University.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always enjoyed teaching Mathematics and find that with most students it is a lack of confidence and belief that they can do the subject. I therefore work on building confidence by covering basics and making sure students have a good grounding in these before proceeding to harder topics and the examination level questions.


I will always give feedback on how we are proceeding and advise on the progress I feel student is making when ever required. If a student is not making progress or struggling or doesn't seem happy with the lessons I will advise on this. I want to see the students and parents happy with what I am doing for them and getting value for money but I will be honest if I think we are not making progress.

Personal Description:
I am an energetic and enthusiastic individual with an interest in the Primary Education field. I qualified as a Primary School teacher after 4 years at Bath Spa University and have enjoyed working with a range of children from Reception to Year 6, as a supply teacher. I am committed and give 100% to everything I do and have specialist subject knowledge and a keen interest in Drama, PE and English Literature and Language.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously taught in a range of Primary schools and currently work at Bath Spa University with international students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a creative and innovative approach to teaching and believe in encouraging children to develop an engagement in their own learning journey. Whilst it is important for children to learn and achieve at a consistent rate, I believe it is as important that they enjoy the process and engage with their individual learning process. I have a BA/BSc degree in Education and Drama and hold a keen interest and specialist skills in English Literature/ English Language, Drama and PE. I also have a PGCE in Primary Education covering all National Primary Curriculum subjects. I am a committed individual and give 100% to all I do.

Personal Description:
***CURRENTLY LIVING IN GERMANY & AVAILABLE FOR ENGLISH CHECKING (BY E-MAIL) ONLY****

I am a professional in my 30s with degrees in English & Italian Literature (BA 2:1, Warwick 2000) and the History of Medicine & Science (MA Merit, Birkbeck College, University of London). I also hold a CELTA qualification in teaching English Language to adults.

Following my masters degree I studied acting at Rose Bruford College and have performed at fringe venues in London and Belfast though tend now to concentrate on writing for the stage. My book of dramatic monologues, "Untold Lives" was published last year and is now available on Amazon. My first novel, "And I Shall Be Healed" was published by Quickbeam Press in January 2014,

Proof-editing: contact for rates.

In addition to teaching I also offer a proof-reading service so for university essays / research proposals / writing projects, please do contact me for rates.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently living and working as a CELTA qualified EFL teacher in Bonn, Germany. In addition I have 9 years private tutoring experience. Much of this was tutoring GCSE students in English Literature with some history and A'Level students.

In addition to this I hold a CELTA qualificatin and have taught English language at summer schools in Italy.

I hold a CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to proof-editing / English checking is to look primarily at the language. For some clients - university students in particular - it is not appropriate to offer an editorial service as this goes against the rules of university submissions. However, where I think a mistake has been made or something is not clearly expressed - and it is not a simple matter of correcting the language - then I will flag it up to the student so they can look at it again.

My main aim with students is to build their confidence and enthusiasm for the subject. To this end I concentrate on teaching the skills they require to achieve the grades they want. My role is not to replace the teaching they get at school but to compliment it so a tutoring session could concentrate on planning an essay the student has been asked to write or going through specific areas the student needs help with. I won't necessarily give homework - unless required - as I feel students have enough to do without me adding to their workload.

In return I expect my students to engage with the sessions. They don't have to like the subject and of course I'm there to help those who don't understand some things or just need a little help or encouragement, but the student must be prepared to be tutored.

I am a qualified lecturer for Economics, Accounting and Business Studies. Also I have been an examiner for more than 13 years. In tuition I prefer to use my own resources. However, at times I do use resources provided by the learner to makes it easier for the learner to adapt and organise. I have privately tutored many students over the years and made positive difference to their grades.

Currently, I am developing online educational sessions/material to aid students in learning. My videos have already had more than 100,000 hits. I believe these videos should allow revision when I am not available or refresh what you have learned with me.

Good Luck!

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 13 years of teaching and examining experience.

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed and exam focused to meet the need of your child.

Personal Description:
My aim is to help each student reach their potential through individually tailored lessons designed to make learning enjoyable. I have a strong belief that for people of all ages, learning can be fun, and if you relish the process, you are much more likely to learn something!

Every lesson includes the use of several workbooks, learning diagrams, reading books, learning games and rewards (for younger students) ranging from stickers to special prizes for the hardest workers!

I also believe that a hugely understated part of any teachers role is to give a student confidence, as when belief is established, the student's results tend to rapidly improve as well. Therefore my extremely enthusiastic approach to tutoring is vital in building a students confidence and skyrocketing upwards in levels.

There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing a student achieve what they set out to do, be it a particular grade they need to obtain or a skill they need to develop.

Teaching Experience:

For over nine years I have been teaching English, Literacy and Reading from my own home. I have an Honours Degree in English Language BA (Hons).

Recent Testimonials:

Ellen (10)
Year 6 SATS

Ellen was described as just below the expected level for English. We also felt her spelling was often poor and she struggled with extended writing. The main thing we have noticed is Ellen's confidence, attitude to learning and overall happiness: the improvement is immense. Ellen has now adapted a 'can do' attitude and revels in articulating what she has learnt with David. David is incredibly enthusiastic and positive, an approach that has really worked with Ellen. Speaking as a teacher, it is also clear that he understands the amendment procedures for Key Stage 2 and therefore every minute of every lesson is preparing Ellen for success. Ultimately my daughter loves to attend David's lesson and loves learning now!

Jack (16)
GCSE's

Jack's mock results were an E in English Language as well as a D in literature and he wanted to do Economics A level which required a B grade in his final GCSE. Jack had two hours of tuition per week from January to May. He enjoyed going (this surprised me as he hated English before the sessions) and had a new found likeness for literacy. He received a B in both language and literature and can now do A level economics. Jack related very well to David- this made learning easier for Jack and he obtained the grades he needed. His teachers at school noticed a marked improvement in his work when he was having tuition.

Score: 10/10

Oliver (6)
Year 2

Oliver was falling behind in Math's and English. I am very happy to say that his confidence and his ability to retain what David teaches him has improved greatly. His teachers at school have also commented on his marked improvement and he now feels a sense of achievement in everything he does- he also speaks of making David proud. David was/is exactly what I was looking for. Oliver doesn't seem to think about his lesson as lesson, he genuinely enjoys spending Saturday mornings at David's as he now really wants to improve himself! Wow!!!

Personal Description:
Please, feel free to contact me to see my works - I will send you the link via e-mail.

Who am I? I am a creative female human being, who is about to graduate in BSc (Hons) Architecture. I have been:
• breathing for 23 years;
• creating art for more than 12 years.

I am a darling of fortune. I do what I love and love what I do. Moreover, in my case, it is the most precise definition of my future career. I am in a deep, incurable love with Rain, Poetry, Black Coffee, Philosophy, Books, Music and any manifestations of elegant, thoughtful and inspiring Design & Art in all areas of life: from the greatest "Bilbao-effect-Architecture" from Powers-that-be at all times (starting with Ancient innovations to Modern Deconstructionism) to the 50's rockabilly dresses in my wardrobe.

Teaching Experience:

Mostly, I privately tutored children every summer between 2005-2009, helped primary school teacher to prepare art classes. I am currently looking forward to expand age category of my tutees.
I am now starting tutoring again after a break (since 2009), therefore, references will be available soon.

Tutoring Approach:

Before I start tutoring I always prefer to arrange a meeting to have a chat about what your requirements/preferences/needs are first. Once this is discussed, I take couple of days to arrange a brief plan for our lessons, which will be sent to you by e-mail. That way we adjust it together and I have time to prepare helpful information/books/software etc. for you. Once it is confirmed we arrange the date for the first lesson.

Personal Description:
I have been tutoring for over three years, with excellent results , while working in the maths department of a secondary school where I have been for 10 years.

I teach students of all ages and abilities, including those with SEN (special educational needs). In a classroom situation, on a one to one basis or as part of a small group.

I have extensive knowledge of the curriculum taught in years 7-11 and excellent resources, including past exam papers.

Teaching Experience:

I teach GCSE Maths to students who need extra help to reach their targets, this can be in a classroom situation or as part of a small group.
I also run intervention groups in tutor time and after school that offer extra help to GCSE students before their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I get a great deal of a satisfaction from working with students and helping them become more confident in a subject they quite often dislike because they find it difficult.
I have a very calm and patient manner as I want to build a good relationship with my students and for them to feel relaxed.
After assessing the student I set realistic goals for them so they feel they are achieving, each student is different and learns at a different rate, the important thing is for them to make the progress they are capable of.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher for all ages, from toddlers to business adults and I am also a postgrad MA student at Christie's Education studying Modern and Contemporary Art History. I studied Art History at Manchester where I achieved a high 2.1 and gained a First in my dissertation and so understand fully what it takes to structure and compile a piece of writing comprehensively and eloquently.

I am London based and have a bright engaging personality and outlook on teaching in order to engage and interest my students as much as possible in their lessons and their work. I aim to encourage and ensure progression to all my students of all ages, as I myself understand it is never to late to learn, however old or young you are.

My TEFL qualification has certified me as capable of teaching English as a foreign language to young learners, teenagers, large groups, one on one, business language and social.
From my time at school and also at university I understand comprehensively the skills required to achieve optimum marks and I have an extensive knowledge for History of Art at both A Level and University Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for the past three years and in those years I have predominantly taught younger children (6-14 year olds) as well as young adults (18-27 year olds). These have been in small groups or private tuition. I have taught students from a variety of countries including Russia, China, Italy and France to name a few.
I am more than capable of nurturing and handling the quietest and shyest of students to the very naughty and the very confident!
I was a peer mentor throughout University and helped settle new students into university life and assisted with any problems they may have. I gave talks on essay writing and study skills for both exams and essays at different points throughout the year.
If needed or more convenient I have also been trained to teach over the phone or through skype and have taught several people this way. If this sounds a more appealing means to take your lessons then feel free to ask me about this as an option.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on building a trusting relationshipewith the student and aim to build their confidence in the subject they are struggling with.
I will assess the students standard of knowledge and ask what areas they most wish to cover and what areas they feel they struggle with the most. From this first assessment I will then build a suitable lesson plan and rough timetable of topics and activities for them to complete and work on. So that they feel they are gaining as much as they can from every lesson with me.
I am firm but kind! I have a very calm nature and do not think it is positive to aggressively force students into situations or topics that do not interest them or are of no use. However, I will push them as much as I feel necessary in order for them to progress as far as possible and achieve the highest results.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified primary school teacher, who works full time as a class teacher in a local Primary School. I have been teaching for over 22 years, and I have taught throughout the primary years as both a classroom teacher and as subject leader in English and in reading. I also hold the posts of head of Year 4 and head of a school house. I have also spent many weekends tutoring primary school children in Maths and English in and around my local area. I also tutor children after school.

I enjoy working with children in the class room and on a one to one basis as I see them blossom to reach their full potentail in the time I work with them.

I do specialise in primary English and Maths, but I also tutor children who need extra help in reading, science and ICT.

Teaching Experience:

Primary School teacher of over 22 years.
I have taught throughout the primary school years.
I specialise in English and Maths.
I have been head of Year 4 and a school house for several years.
I have taught in both state and independent schools.
I have taught in a large primary school, prep schools and multi faith schools. I have also worked in nursery / reception school.
I am currently head of Reading in my current post. I have had this position for 8 years.

I have spent the last 6 / 7 years tutoring local children during evenings, weekends and school breaks. I am able to tutor children in verbal and non-verbal reasoning for school entrance exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I am available during the summer months of July and August, most days including weekends. I am very flexible with hours, but I must be given 24 hours cancellation notice. Other wise the standard hourly rate will apply.
I am available to tutor on a Saturday during term times as well.
I am happy to come to your home but would also be happy for your child to be tutored at my home. Which ever is more comfortable for you and your child.
I enjoy one to one sessions with children as I approach the time as quality learning time where I seek to get the most out of an individual. I can give extra support and reassurance to a child who maybe struggling or stretch the more able with higher level tasks.
