Personal Description:
I live in Sutton Coldfield and work in Birmingham. I am currently a Head of Department at a high achieving selective grammar I have been teaching over 13 years and also work for three major exam boards. I have a current and up to date DBS as required in the profession. I have a passion for teaching and love my job. My aim is to inspire students to attain the most they possibly can and believe with the right support that I can deliver the improvement that other tutors can not. My teaching, tutoring and examination experience put me in a unique position to meet student needs at any level. My A level results for Economics are currently for both AS and A2, in the top 8% of the country and I demand the highest standards from my students. I would describe myself as honest and reliable and am happy to provide references and evidence of any professional concern you may have.

I am both a qualified and experienced professional with access to a range of materials from past exam papers, revision guides for all exam boards as well as my own revision guides/notes based upon my examination work. I offer ongoing support outside of structured lesson time. I have tutored online around the world and this medium allows much greater flexibility and is beginning to meet the needs of all learners. Although you may be skeptical at first (I was) I have been receiving very positive comments regarding online tuition and is an exciting new development that allows access to the tutor that most meets your needs from the comfort of your own home with the usual geographical constraints.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach all the GCSE, AS and A2 Economics at my school as well as teaching A level Business. I work for three major exam boards, CIE international for GCSE and AS papers, (Econ) OCR AS and AQA for A2. I have been involved in examination work for over 8 years. In addition I have experience of tutoring all exam boards at both AS and A2 and have tutored first year undergraduates from the University of Aston and Nottingham.

Tutoring Approach:

Each individual has different needs. Tutoring is a student orientated service. Firstly, I would identify the desired outcomes of the tuition sessions and how we can achieve those outcomes. Depending on the individual this may mean starting by revising work that has been covered at school/college over a period of time but not understood or it could be regular support with work that is currently being covered. In my experience exam preparation and technique is of vital importance and I aim to teach and support students to increase their individual grade potential through knowledge of the exam, it is important that a student is well prepared going into an examination.

I offer both one to one sessions and also run online group lessons for 50% of my one to one fee. The great thing about this is the focus on exam technique and the addition support you can receive online and part of a select group. (You do not have to provide the group)

Above all and what ever tutor you choose it is vital that you get the right tutor with the right experience to get the best possible outcome, please email me to find out more.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my BA in Classics and English at Oriel College Oxford, and hope to continue post graduate study in the future. Academically, my main interests are in the history of Ancient Greek, and the Germanic languages like Old English and Old Norse and in Medieval manuscripts. I have also particularly enjoyed studying epic poetry.
Outside of my academic interests, I like hiking, cycling, Zumba and cross stitching.
I am especially interested in widening access to higher education in Britain, and encouraging those from so-called non-traditional backgrounds to make applications to prestigious universities.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 70 hours of teaching experience at KS1 and KS2 level as an Academic Support Volunteer with the charity IntoUniversity. I attend weekly after school sessions aimed at pupils aged 7-11, facilitating their work on personal homework or maths and literacy tasks. I work with small groups and one-to-one, with children of all abilities from a diverse range of backgrounds.
I have around six hours experience teaching beginners level Ancient Greek to a class of teenage students at the East End Classics Summer School. I planned my own lessons and created my own teaching resources. In two previous years I also worked at the summer school as an academic mentor, running informal discussion sessions for the young people involved.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to devise my own programs of study to match a tutee's particular needs or to follow school syllabuses. I have personal experience of doing the Gothic and Tragedy papers for A Level English literature but am familiar with all the A Level texts through my work as an undergraduate. I let the student talk through their ideas out loud and when discussing literature challenge the student to think of new angles on a question and to argue against themselves. I also like to see a consolidation of what has been discussed more formally, either within or after the session if this is appropriate- a translation, mind map, essay plan or full written work. I would ideally begin a tutorial by asking some questions to establish progress on a particular topic, and from these questions establishing areas for focus. My sessions end with a consolidation of what has been covered and also a challenge to apply what has been covered in a new way, to ensure that the concept, not just its specific application has been understood.

In language learning I put a lot of store by memorising paradigms and vocabulary, and in literary study, I think having repeated immersion in the text studied is vital. This means targeted close reading of particular moments or chapters, and repeated rereading of the whole. An intimate knowledge of a text allows me to think on my feet and respond to questions on new and unexpected topics.

Personal Description:
My name's George, I'm 20 years old and I come from Sutton Coldfield. I'm currently living at home attending full time education studying my degree in Music at the University of Wolverhampton (Walsall Campus).

I'm qualified and have experience in composing and performing on both guitar and piano along side with music theory. Qualifications include ABRSM grades in music theory, three a levels in music and multiple awards along side my experiences in music education and working in the industry.

My services are providing music tuition in guitar, music theory and keyboard/piano skills.

My current offers are listed below.
20 for 1 hour hour from my own home
12 for half an hour from my own home

25 per hour from other students homes
15 for half an hour from students homes

Please feel free to contact me via my email address or mobile number if you're interested in my services or have any questions.

Teaching Experience:

I've had experiences in teaching privately for 3 years, I use to mainly teach in secondary schools along side both children and adults. I've also taught children with special needs and watch them develop and grow to feel happy because they can play and understand music.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to music tuitionl is to inspire, be passionate and most of all make students be happy. Considering that I'm in full time education, I've witnessed many teachers in music and other subjects that don't enjoy what they do for a living. Fortunately I enjoy the rewarding side of making a child or an adult happy due to them being able to play and understand elements that make music.

Personal Description:
Hello.
My name is Leonor. I am from Spain and 38 years old.

I am a teacher of Spanish and teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. I love my profession and find teaching more a pleasure than a job. I have discovered that teaching is a two way experience where the teacher often learns as much from the students as the students learn from the teacher. For me, teaching languages is a very rewarding experience. I work with a couple of colleagues online, so we can offer more languages tuition, such as English (British English), French, German, Portuguese and Entrance Exams. All of us are native, qualified and experienced.

I am especially passionate about my native language, Spanish. I love not only the expressive beauty of the written Spanish, but the enchanting, musical sound and rhythm of spoken Spanish. The magic of the language of Cervantes is one of the reasons I have dedicated my life to the study of languages, especially Spanish.

Besides a passion for languages and linguistics, I also enjoy traveling and tracing the roots of human history and civilization. I am especially fascinated by ancient history.

Teaching Experience:

1. Bachelor Degree in Teaching English. University of Cadiz, in Spain.

2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of Leon (Castilla Leon), in Spain.

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

I am a member of ELE Congress (Spanish as a Foreign Language).

Several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian) from children to adults, and all cases with really good results (available to show in case of need).

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on the Direct Method, I use a technique of teaching a foreign languages without reference to the students native language. This method of total immersion has been proven to be the most effective means of rapidly developing real language skills. It is recognized as one of the best methods for language instruction and currently used around the world. With this method, students quickly develop the ability to think in their new language. This approach is both easy and satisfying. Student progress is quite rapid. Students progress at their own pace in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. With my method, students will begin speaking their new foreign language from the very first lesson (guaranteed), even if they have never spoken a word of their new language before.

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammars tiresome and less than effective? COME AND TRY MY METHOD, THE DIRECT METHOD!

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable person with many years of language learning experience so I know myself how hard it can feel at times when learning a language!
I hold a BA in Modern Language Studies (French & Spanish) and a Certificate in Italian with the Open University.
I have A levels in both French [B] and Spanish [B] as well as GCSEs.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent 3 months living and voluntarily teaching English in Costa Rica.

I spent close to a year weekly voluntarily teaching local immigrants to communicate in English.

I spent 2 years working in a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant for children with Special Educational Needs.

Since 2012, I have been working for Lindsay Does Languages, my own language tuition business. I now tutor online.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that rows and rows of vocab are not only monotonous but also repetitive, and dare I say it, boring!
There are many more fun and varied ways to teach and learn a language. It's important to remember that everyone has different learning styles and what works with one brilliantly, may go straight over an other's head! However, a positive and energetic approach is always necessary.

I tutor the following LLB subjects: Criminal Law and Tort, as well as the AQA and OCR A level Law syllabus welcome students studying for CILEX and other qualifications as well. I also tutor students in legal writing skills.

I have lived in South East Asia for many years and am also an experienced teacher of English as a Second language.

Tutoring Approach:

This is what recent students have said about my tutoring approach:

"Laura's kind and reassuring nature made the sessions really enjoyable as I felt confident to ask her anything and not worry about sounding silly"- Jessica - LLB Law - obtained First Class Honours 2015.

"You are a phenomenal tutor, and a lovely kind woman! Thank you" Charlie - A1 and A2 AQA Law - obtained A and A* in A1 and A2 law modules 2015.

Your sessions will be tailored to suit you! You decide how and what you wish to learn and I will tailor a program to fulfill those needs. If you need revision assistance and preparation help for upcoming A level Law examinations, I can assist you. I am friendly, patient and very supportive. I conduct tuition by offering you detailed feedback on any assignment or problem questions you prepare, or clarifying any areas or points of Law which you find difficult to grasp. This is time and cost effective for both you and me as there is no traveling involved and we can participate in our sessions from the comfort of our own homes.

Personal Description:
My interest in music began at primary school. I took instrumental lessons in flute and vocal tuition at the early age of 7 and piano aged 10. After quickly becoming involved in choirs, orchestras and solo performances I managed to achieve two music scholarships into two Independent schools.

Currently aged 21, I am a recent Music graduate from Bath Spa University. My studies included Opera, Singing, Composition, Performance, Musicology and Community Music. I have covered an extensive variety of repertoire, on all instruments, and performed on a number of occasions. Performances have taken place at St. Peters Basilica, The Pantheon, St. Peters Square, Bath Abbey, Wells Cathedral, Corsham Court, St Michaels Without, Worcester Cathedral, Bath Assembly Rooms and low key events such as termly school concerts and voluntary performances to the elderly.

Alongside teaching, I am interested in providing music-making workshops to local schools. I am also in discussion with the Worcestershire communities, to provide singing sessions for the elderly. Singing provides great enjoyment to many people, and working with community choirs is another factor of teaching I am interested in, as choral music is another great passion of mine. I enjoy composing new music and was honoured with having a recent Christmas composition performed in Bath Abbey's carol service.

Teaching Experience:

Alongside my studies, I have taught mainly piano to a handful of students. I enjoy teaching and consequently on the lookout for any new pupils of all abilities, who are seeking tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about teaching, and believe it's important that all lessons are fun and enjoyable for any pupil. Lesson's include a variety of activities in order to aid different learning styles, from listening to cd's, learning basic music theory and using colour to brighten up scores. For young beginners, I think that it is important to keep in touch with parents, so write in a notepad on a weekly basis about what practice is required for improvement.

I am CRB checked and can offer lessons during the daytime, evening or weekends. I am happy to travel to local areas of Redditch. For any further information, please do not hesitate to get in contact.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (24 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a 19 year old Romanian first year student of Aeronautical Engineering in Imperial College London and I am confident that I will get a 'First' at the end of the year.

Teaching Experience:

I would lie if I would say that I am experienced, given the fact that I only helped a 13 year old student in his 7th grade with Maths during the summer (even though with pleasing results).

Tutoring Approach:

Even though this would be my first tutoring work, I am confident that I will do a good job, with dedication and perseverance. First of all, my purpose is to find out what the tutee demands so that I adapt to his/her needs, in a friendly atmosphere. I am also open to opinions and suggestions regarding my teaching manner.

Personal Description:
I am a young spanish guy living in London, i came to this city to improve my English because im studying to be a teacher (English specialty). Its a 4 years degree in the International University of La Rioja (Spain) and i complement my studies working part-time in a famous clothing store.
Five years ago i finished my Economics degree (4 years) in University of La Corua (Spain) and also i did a course about Stock Market Analysis in University of La Corua. I received a State scholarship to work in an Italian international company, where i had the chance to learn Italian as well. I did an Italian course in the Tourism School of Rimini (Italy).
I decided to star my teacher degree and change my personal career because i feel that its my vocation, i love to learn about everything and have the chance to pass on my knowledge to others. Its something really pleasant.
As additional information i can say that im a quite person, very patient and i love the sports, im a sportsmen and i did the course to be a monitor leisure activities which has given me the opportunity to deal with many children and teach them so many different activities such as: Archery,kayak, canoeing and rowing...
Other information of interest is that i was football coach during 6 years in a Spanish football team, dealing with children between 5 and 12 years old. It was a good experience to learn how i can motivate the children to achieve their objectives.

Teaching Experience:

Ive been working as a Spanish teacher in a language academy during 6 months, teaching people from Germany, France, and UK... (Adult people)
Also I've worked in a Primary School during 1 year as an English teaching assistant, teaching children aged between 3 and 9.
Apart from that i worked as a private tutor teaching different subject such as maths, English, economy, geography, history and Spanish. Teaching to students between 6 and 15 years old.

Tutoring Approach:

About my teaching philosophy, i believe that the student has to understand the problems and no just memorize. I always try to explain the subjects adapting the concepts to the real life, like that, the student will remember better the explanation.
For language classes i try to combine grammar, vocabulary and conversation. The conversation is one of the most important part to gain confidence and to speak fluently another language.
I always try to motivate the students to face the subject like something interesting and funny for them.
Concerning my availability im available Monday to Friday after 4:00 pm and weekends could also be negotiated. Im glad to tutor in my home or commute to your place or find another location.

Personal Description:

Tutoring Approach:

Flexible with times and with teaching material and media approaches. I will tailor make a tutoring schedule and plan for individual student needs and levels. I am able to progressively evaluate the development of the student and focus on improving their weaknesses. Having learned both English and German as a second language I am able to understand the processes the student must undertake and am able to adapt and use the methods i used in learning both English and German to help the student improve in Spanish language both written and verbally.

As I understand the difficulties and challenges of learning a new language, I am always willing to provide the best learning environment for the student, with patience and always encouraging them to achieve their maximum potential.

Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Andrew, I am in my middle 50's and taught in private schools for 15 years. I then left education for change of lifestyle and other personal reasons. I have been married for over 26 years and have 2 daughters 25 and 23. I am a committed christian and as such the integrity of the teacher student relationship is very important to me; I would always go the extra mile to see that the student achieves their aims.

I have a current DBS. Loads of references available from Senior teachers and Deputy Headmasters past and present. (Present Headmasters are not the Heads for which I worked).

Teaching Experience:

Repton Prep School 1992 - 2006, Maths, ICT to year 8. Head of ICT.

Manor House School 2006-2007, Maths and ICT to GCSE. Head of ICT.

Private tutor, 4 years, A level (not statistics - sorry), GCSE and Y6 SAT's, Entrance Exams.

I have also coached football, hockey and cricket so I have a solid foundation in motivating students.

Tutoring Approach:

Motivational, inspirational, encouraging. All things are possible with a good attitude. A can do approach. I do NOT subscribe to the "we don't do it like that mentality" , if there is a better way of doing something then I'm positive about new methods.
For example, when my daughters were learning their tables I wrote my own simple spreadsheet to enable tables practice on a table by table random basis. This is a completely unashamedly a drill system that produces results. Easily possible to learn all tables to 12 within a month if sufficient time is invested, it is also an enjoyable process that 99% of the children that I taught enjoyed, I used the spreadsheet extensively in the schools at which I taught. Infinitely extendable for the brightest to 13, 14, 15 20x tables; likewise can be simplified to 2x and 3x for those that need more time. Also programmable to practise number bonds with any number of digits.

I have also developed the spreadsheet to enable learning of vocabulaire francais.

Personal Description:
I am a 54 year old mother of three grown up children and one a adorable granddaughter. I love working with young people and children. And really enjoy encouraging young people to fullfill their potential. I may be slightly more expensive than university students who offer tuition however I have teaching and exam experience and good exam results.

I have 14 years experience teaching Biology in an outstanding school; teaching GCSE and A Level.

I have a good exam results track record. On two occasions supporting over half of my GCSE students to gain A*; as well as many of my A level students gaining A and A*.

I also tutor primary aged children Maths and English.

My tutoring takes place after school and on Saturday mornings at my own premises.

Teaching Experience:

I have some early years experience from when I lived in New Zealand for fourteen years. However, my more relevant experience to this is I have a 2:1 degree in Biomedical science, and 13 years experience of teaching KS 3 science, KS 4 and A level Biology.

Tutoring Approach:

As I am a very positive person I encourage my students with lots of praise. However, this is not just when they do well but also when they try hard. I emphasise that its learning from mistakes that improves learning. I strongly encourage the ethos of having an open mindset; only by giving something a go can you succeed! I lead my students to become independent thinkers and learners.

Personal Description:
I am a successful local tutor and teacher with an MA in Education from Oxford Brookes University (2016), a Postgraduate Diploma in English and Language in Education from the University of Reading (2012). I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Secondary - English) from Oxford Brookes University (2007) and a BA Hons in English Literature (2006). I am passionate about my subject and enthusiastic about improving both my pedagogical and subject knowledge. With A Level clients, I often re-read the key exam texts and exam specifications in order to deliver a successful tutorial. For GCSE, I am confident with multiple exam boards but, again, I take a sincere interest in changes to qualifications and specifications. I have recently led a team of ten teachers in our delivery of the GCSE English qualification through WJEC. Part of my role included observing good teaching practice and documenting this for staff appraisals.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years experience of working in the state secondary sector as a Qualified English Teacher; teaching anything from Key Stage 3 (11 years - 14 years) up to Key Stage 5 (A Level) including GCSE. I currently teach GCSE and iGCSE English at a popular FE college for adults, returning to education, and for full-time learners aged 16+. In addition, I have previously worked as a Learning Support Assistant, at a Catholic primary school in Reading. I have also taught American children how to use movie editing packages, such as iMovie, in Maine, USA.

Tutoring Approach:

The rapport with the parent is as just as important as the tutee. In order to make a success of the tuition, it's paramount to have a good professional relationship with both. I use feedback from the tutee's parent (via a school report) and informal feedback from the tutee to create an Individual Tuition Plan which includes setting three clear targets. Depending on the key stage and ability of the tutee, this can range anything from parenthetic comma use to translating Chaucerian poetry!
