Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Andrew, I am in my early 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 25 years and have 2 daughters 24 and 22. 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, 3 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.

View Jonathan's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Birmingham in June 2010 with a first class degree in maths. I also attained grade A in my maths, further maths and physics A levels.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since leaving university, and have worked with many students who are currently studying for their GCSEs and A levels. However, I have no teaching experience in schools or teaching qualifications.

Tutoring Approach:

I generally prefer to let the tutee have a go at the questions they're working on, only giving them help when I feel they're at a loss as to where to go next. This is mostly due to my own experience of learning maths as I found that, when I managed to solve a problem by myself, I tended to more easily remember how to do it again when it came to revising for my exams. However, the main reason I got a first in maths was because I went over and over previous examples and questions until I'd learned every method and could solve every problem, so if need be I will just work through a question for them (obviously ensuring they understand each step as we go along) and simply let them pick up the methods that I'm using. This way I can be sure that they have a solution that they understand and can look back at in the future for guidance.

Personal Description:
I am a tutor of both Chinese Mandarin and Cantonese. I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and focused professional with exceptional organisational skills. I am from China, but have lived in England for 11 years. I am fluent in English and have English language qualifications.

I worked for Barclays in UK for six year but I much prefer teaching. I find it very rewarding when I see my students learn and grow with my help. This is why I now work full-time as a private tutor.

I am currently teaching several students. They give me great feedback and are very satisfied with the service I offer.

I have worked as an interpreter and translator. I have a UK masters degree in International Business Communication. While working at Barclays I worked in Correspondence and often interpreted

Teaching Experience:

I have taught both grown-ups and kids, one-to-one and in a group.

If you are going to or doing business with Chinese:
I have experience of teaching groups of senior business people in the office. I have been giving great feedback. For example, "I have gained lots of confidence to speak Chinese when I travel to China for business. Liwen is a really encouraging tutor and I have made great progress in a short space of time."

I also have one-to-one lessons with students who are doing business with Chinese or travelling to China frequently.

If you are planning to travel to China for a holiday:
Few of my students learned Chinese before they went to China for holiday. They were very satisfied after my lessons. "Liwen is professional, organised, and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who would like to learn or improve their Chinese. "

If you are parents and wanted your children to learn Chinese:
I have students between 3-7 years old. They really enjoy my lessons. As a mum myself, I understand the need of children.
I am also teaching in the secondary school. There are many enthusiastic students in the class.

More:
I have both Cantonese and Mandarin adult students.

I am very warm, patient, understanding and a great listener.

I have invested in my teaching materials and have some great stuff to help you learn.

I am flexible and can offer lessons on subject matters of interest to the student.

I have taught students who have very different reasons for wanting to learn Mandarin or Cantonese. Some because they have Chinese relations, some because they have a general interest in China. In all cases I have been able to meet my student's needs and they have been very satisfied with what my lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think everyone has different learning styles. My aim is to understand the different needs of my students and provide the best teaching methods for them, so they will get the most from my lessons. As I have been in England for over 11 years, I have a deep understanding of the cultural differences between west and east.

I like to share my own personal experiences with my students in order to illuminate a subject.

I make lessons enjoyable and have designed some games and exercises.

I am very passionate about teaching Chinese and love to see my students progress.

Personal Description:
I am 64 years of age mother of two grown children. My husband teaches at the Metropolitan University. I was born in the German speaking part of Switzerland and so am bi-lingual.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught English to German speaking people but I have taught at South and North Trafford college, at Alderley Edge School for Girls, Wilmslow High and Knutsford High. I have also taught business people when they were either connected to a Swiss, Austrian or German company. I have tutored pupils from Manchester Grammar and also Altrincham Grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

If the pupil is learning German at his or her school I will be gladly guided by what they do with the German teacher and the course they want to go to improve their skills and also by their parents if they have any instructions of their own.

Personal Description:
Highly motivated and enthusiastic Mechanical Engineering Masters Graduate from one of the leading University in London (Queen Mary University). I have achieved a 1st Class in the MEng course and I have studied many modules relevant to high level Maths and Physics. Furthermore, during my course I have achieved a 1st class in all the Maths modules. Prior to my Degree, I completed A levels in Maths, Further maths, Physics and French.
I currently work at the Bank of England as a Project Engineer on weekdays and I generally tutor on Saturdays & Sundays. However, I can also tutor on weekdays evening to accommodate the need and requirement of my students if required.
I am a friendly and supportive person who gets excellent results by making lessons fun as well as informative. I am considered to be patient and adaptable and many of my students come to me by recommendation.

Teaching Experience:

Since completing my University masters Degree, I have been tutoring maths, further maths and physics on a regular basis. I have tutored and helped many students achieve their targeted grades, many of which coming from private and Grammar schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is treated as an individual and I use different methods of teaching to accommodate the needs of different students. I find that using methods which will develop independent thinking helps students progress.
In the first session I usually prepare a small assessment in order to identify the student's areas of improvement and then address those in the following sessions. I can also help with any particular topics/areas students are struggling at school and help with homework. Approaching exam periods I will provide student with a number of past exam papers to practice and I will go through any question that is not fully understood. My aim is always to raise the achievements of my tutees beyond their own expectations with challenging and rewarding lessons.

View Kate's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a 1st Class Honours graduate from UCLAN, Preston, having studied Dance Performance and Teaching. The course combined dance technique, physical training and a strong focus on facilitating and tutoring.
I gained a highly acclaimed PGCE Secondary teacher training qualificaton specialising in Performing Arts (dance and drama) at Liverpool Hope University and professionally lectured HND Dance at Mid Cheshire college.
I enjoy academic work and feel confident in my own abilities regarding writing skills, basic computer skills and organisational skills. I personally have worked on these attributes through all my A Level studies and during University (both under-graduate and post-graduate) to reach a stage where I am competent and comfortable enough to pass what I have learnt onto others. My A Level subjects included English Language, Psychology and Performing Arts.
I now teach Dance, Drama, Music and English at a London secondary school and am the whole school Literacy Lead as well as Head of Performing Arts (Music, Dance and Drama).
I am an approachable, empathetic and dedicated tutor that has knowledge of the current education system and styles first hand.

Teaching Experience:

To date, my experience varies from both formal educational settings to those in the community. I have experience with all ages and all abilities; including disadvantaged groups and disabled students.
Dance is my specialism so I often teach in Physical Education settings, combining techniques from both typical classroom management and also general facilitation.
I am continually working in the community to broaden my experience base and as a result have worked with all types of learners therefore building up a good amount of tools and skills that I apply to individual cases.
I assisted in the running and facilitating of Preston Youth Dance Company and, until moving to London, ran my own community classes as well as teach professionally at further and higher education levels.
In my professional environment I am subject to regular observations and monitoring to maintain my high practice.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is often a more physical 'learn by doing' approach. Visualising and trying each avenue out is what I find works best in order to understand what does and does not work. I take care in addressing the type of learner I deal with and prefer not to force or expect knowledge but encourage and develop it.
I believe that it is important to firstly understand each other as tutor and tutee and then agree on preferred structure and goals, both short and long term. I also firmly believe in praise where due and do not hesitate to create the correct relationship boundaries.

Personal Description:
I am a University of Oxford graduate, and a native Arabic speaker born and educated in Syria. I speak both English and Arabic fluently.

Teaching Experience:

. Two years of tutoring in Syria.

I am a patient tutor, and I do understand the difficulties with learning other languages.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable, fifth year medical student currently studying at Imperial College London. I am very passionate about education and I find great satisfaction in helping people achieve.

I have GCSEs in Maths, German, French, Geography, Graphics, English Literature, English Language, Religious Studies, IT, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, A2 levels in Maths, Chemistry and Biology and an AS level in Geography. Before commencing my medical studies I read Biochemistry for 4 years at Warwick University and achieved a 2:1.

Due to my experience in applying to medical school I am happy to help with personal statements, UKCAT and interview technique. Having sat in on the interview panels for 2 years at Imperial I can give first hand advice on exactly what medical schools are looking for at interview, and what they want to read on a personal statement.

Teaching Experience:

At Warwick University I was employed as a Biostatistics tutors for the first years for 1 academic year. I also have an abundance of experience working with younger children through various volunteering schemes and therefore I am experienced in helping children of all ages reach their full potential in many aspects of their lives, not just academically.
I have taken 3 students through their GCSEs over the last couple of years and have relished watching their grades and confidence improve

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring tutoring to each individual's learning style to get the best out of our time together. I do this whilst also trying to create an enjoyable working environment to encourage maximum learning potential. This is especially important with younger students; I want them to enjoy our sessions so that they look forward to them and get the most out of them.
I am also happy to set work to be done outside of the sessions, which can then be worked on together in future meetings.

Personal Description:
As a child, I learned by being told, by beatings, shaming and a strict examination system. As you can imagine I didn't learn much that I could later apply to my academic life. As a result, I became an inveterate learner, always interested in learning the next thing. At one point, the drive to learn was because I didn't see myself as being good enough. Later on, that drive became an interest in discovering my own abilities as well as about helping others. I have now learned so much about how not to teach that I have gained good insight into how learning happens. I am keen to ensure all my learners learn how to learn and understand how to apply what they discover.

Teaching Experience:

My background is in teaching, training and facilitation. I have over 25 years experience of teaching in different forms having worked within primary, secondary and further education settings. I am an NVQ / TAQA assessor and trained and assessed Parenting Practitioners and other candidates up to Level 5 in Health & Social Care. I have specialist skills in Personal Effectiveness subjects such as Report Writing, Speed Reading, Presentation Skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Being a private tutor used to be the preserve of only those with the highest qualifications and the greatest experience. Now all that's changed.

However good a tutor is, the learner needs to be astute in order know if the tutor is a good match for her / him. Importantly, making the right choice can be complex.
Here are three tips to help you decide if I am or someone else is right for you. The following tips describe how I teach and how I will enable you to be an independent learner.

1. Look for a tutor who can teach you how to learn
Here's a funny thing… learners study a subject, sometimes for months and years and can come away with no long-term memory of the underpinning principles of the subject. As disturbing, they have no ongoing understanding of the subject. They are unable to apply what they tried to learn. This is easily resolved by clearing up past issues with learning. In Applied Scholastics it is now well known that if as a learner, you are helped to do so, you can learn any subject. This is central to how I teach.

2. Look for tutors who understand the main barriers to learning and can help you overcome them
There are three main barriers to study. They relate to confusion over an idea, missing out critical steps and having unclear ideas about the subject under study. Gaining a day to day facility with overcoming those barriers is key to effective and efficient study. I use these methods to help my own reading and study. I will introduce them to you so that you can use them too.

3. Look for tutors who can help you find the information you need so that you keep expanding your own understanding of the subject

Sometimes, a learner during a course of study will find that s/he wants to give up. Have you ever experienced this? Whenever that happens it is because there is something - an idea, a symbol, a form of punctuation, the use of a word, or something else - that you did not understand. Without the proper factual information on this and without the correct knowledge of why and how this happens, the learner will struggle. Without knowing what remedies to apply, the learner will give up.

When you study, you are investing time and energy. In this case, money too. If you want to discover more about how you learn, what your barriers to study are and how to understand more, you will benefit from being an independent learner. That will repay your investment.

Those three critical points should help you decide if I could be right for you. They briefly describe the way in which I would work with you and enable you to be an independent learner.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor and current A level and GCSE teacher with over 22 years experience.
I have had a lot of success with my private tutoring, having helped many students achieve the grades they need to gain entry to the university courses of their choice - including medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry.
I have helped students in all the main exam boards including AQA, OCR and Edexcel

I have excellent communication skills and a very approachable manner which quickly puts students at ease.

I am married and have four children, three of which have passed through A levels so I know what it is like as a parent and teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in a secondary and sixth form for 24 yrs and am currently a GCSE and A level Biology and Psychology teacher as well as a sixth form tutor.

I have been tutoring Biology and Psychology for over 20 yrs with great success with students from both the state and private sector. I have helped students from Collyer's; The Weald School; Steyning Grammer; Seaford College; Worth School; Farlington and Reigate Grammer to name a few.

My subject knowledge is very good being educated to BSc (Hons) in Biology and MSc in Psychology

I am very flexible and will either tutuor in my own home or am happy to travel to you.

Tutoring Approach:

My main focus has been tutoring and teaching A level Biology and more recently Psychology.and have been very successful in helping students of all abilities to improve their grades to allow them to make their next step in their education.

My strengths are that I have very good communication skills and put students at ease allowing for the greatest progress to be made.

I focus on two main areas. Firstly in breaking down theory areas to make it understandable. I get students to learn key words and use revision spider diagrams to see the overview of difficult topics so they don't get lost in the theory. Then I use these spider diagrams to help them select accurately the correct theory areas to answer exam based questions.

Secondly I focus on exam technique, deconstructing questions to focus on how to structure an answer and then to select the correct theory to use in the answer.

I can offer a selection of services.

A) simple tuition: focusing of understanding specific areas as the student needs

B). Tutoring programme: setting up and organising a tutoring programme for several lessons that will cover, systematically, a larger area of the subject.

C). Revision programme: creating a revision programme with the student and managing the students revision programme in the subject (s). This will take the student up to the exam.

I Include setting and marking exam based H/W's.

I also include revision material and workbooks as well as past paper packs with mark schemes.

I have been very successful with students from those wanting to take up Medicine, Veterinary or Dentistry courses, to those who just want a pass to everyone in between.
