Personal Description:
I live in Cheshire and have two children. I enjoy camping, the outdoors & the countryside in general. We like to travel around the UK, especially Scotland & Southern Ireland. I have enjoyed being successful professionally & in my academic career & I am always looking for new opportunities to make the best use of the skills I've developed over the years. I enjoy working out and train most days. I have an interest in numismatics (coins and paper money).

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Further & Higher education for the past 22 years & I am Head of Subject & Senior Lecturer at a College with Beacon status in the North West. My results are 10% above national benchmark & I am an examiner with a leading examination board. Last year, I carried out some regular private tuition & was able to turn E grades into A grades at A2 level. This was very satisfying for me & the student concerned was able to go on & take a degree in Law, something he wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. I have been specialising in online teaching since 2009 and have been supporting A level, Undergraduate and Ph.D students in order to maximise their academic potential and their summative grades. Don't wait until September to contact me, get ahead now.............Julian

Tutoring Approach:

I like to treat every student as an individual & seek to respond to their individual learning needs. I offer a very reliable, high standard of service & see us as working together to achieve a common objective, that of success in the summative examinations. Being an examiner for sociology is also a real advantage for my tutees too. More recently, I have been working with Nelson Thornes and AQA to provide 50 online Sociology learning resources for publication in support of their new A2 student book. I now also offer online tuition via Skype voice and video call at a discounted hourly rate for block bookings, hence the 25 rate.

Personal Description:
Born in Taipei, Taiwan, I received advanced cello training from John Todd at Birmingham Conservatoire. Since the year of 2010, I have held a master of music degree in cello performance at Birmingham Conservatoire. Moreover, in the year of 2008, I was also accepted by Idyllwild Art Academy in California. With the orchestra of Idyllwild Art Academy, I participated in the chamber music orchestra and solo performances, and performed in Disney Concert Hall.

Teaching Experience:

Years of practicing and training grants me the motivation to pursue the career in music and kindles my enthusiasm of educating the youth. Also, I currently conduct the private lesson with pupils from all ages. I enjoy the moment of teaching, in which she is motivated by the hope of education and every improvement that the pupils have shown.

Tutoring Approach:

I can offer the intensive trainings for the emphasis on music exam training and other professional trainings for performances. Also, I care about each student's every need and concern on the path of music learning.

Personal Description:
I am a professional actor with a first-class English degree (University of York). Over my years of private tutoring experience I have learnt that the two most important attributes for a tutor are a) a passion for your subject, and b) an ability to get on and connect with your tutees.
I have always loved English literature and language (my love for the latter having recently been stoked by taking a CELTA qualification) and combine a real passion for these subjects with a performer's ability to relay that passion.

Teaching Experience:

Several years of private tutoring experience.

8 hours of CELTA teaching practice.

I taught IB English (standard and higher levels) for five months at the United World College of Southern Africa (Swaziland).

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring allows me to exercise my twin passions: arts subjects and acting. I believe there is an aspect of performance in teaching; I can communicate my enthusiasm, and make learning both interesting and exciting.

  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Kevin, a friendly and approachable full time Maths tutor with a patient and empathetic attitude.

I studied Maths at Uni after gaining 11 A grades at GCSE and 4 A grades at A level (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry) and since then I`ve worked as both an Accountant and an Actuary.

I`m an intelligent guy with the ability to break things down to their simplest forms, but am also patient and a good listener with the ability to understand the way someone else thinks about a problem. I think its these qualities that combine to make me a natural tutor and time after time I`ve experienced that when people have a problem understanding something, its been me they`ve come to.

One of my recent reviews:

"My son was struggling with his AS level maths course having failed to keep up with the pace of new topics
in the Autumn term of 2012. Relatively late in the day before the exams in May 2013 we were fortunate
enough to get Kevin to help him and there was a complete transformation of his confidence and approach
to maths. Before Kevin's intervention my son had achieved U, D and E grades in various mock exams but
in test papers before the actual exams he was getting results right at the top of the grade spectrum. I cannot
recommend Kevin too highly for his technical expertise in the subject or for his organised and sympathetic
teaching approach which was essential in my son's case. Kevin brought my son order and confidence out of
confusion and despair"

Teaching Experience:

I`m experienced and happy to tutor at any level KS3, GCSE, AS and A-level, QTS Numeracy exam (in fact, adult learners in any field needing a maths/numeracy refresher).

I also tutor for business school and foundation year maths exams eg GMAT, NCUK IFY etc. (Please ask for rates for these exams).

Tutoring Approach:

Let me know what your aim is - whether it be to understand that topic/module you 'just cant get!', or to go through past papers, or to learn a whole course from start to finish, and between us we can agree the best approach for you, and prepare a plan of action to ensure you achieve your goals.

Subjects
  • Maths
  • GCSE or Standards (45 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (45 p.h.)
  • Adult/Casual learner (45 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm a friendly, qualified teacher, currently working in a London secondary school teaching RS, Philosophy and English. I studied Theology and Religious Studies at Cambridge (achieved a First) and moved to London to do an MA in International Politics and Human Rights at City University. I caught the London bug so I'm still here! I really enjoy the opportunity it offers to teach students from a whole range of backgrounds and abilities. I have always loved learning, and I love helping children develop their understanding of the world through their chosen subjects, so I find tutoring really rewarding.

I am both professional and personable, and have always had good relationships with my tutees and their parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of experience with children through nannying and youth camps I've helped on over the past 10 years, and also have experience tutoring 1-1 in London on a weekly basis. I did my teacher training in Tower Hamlets 2 years ago, and have been working as a teacher since. I achieved 'Outstanding' or 'Good' standards in all lessons that were observed during my training.

I am passionate about the importance of education, for building both competence and confidence into children and young adults.

The Cambridge supervision system showed me how beneficial individual tutoring can be. I had two 1-1 sessions every week with my subject supervisors, which taught me first hand how to inspire, challenge and build confidence in the tutor-tutee relationship.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have a preliminary discussion (usually by phone, but in person is also fine) with the student's parent(s) to find out about the student's level of understanding, capability and confidence, as well as their main goals and any relevant exam board they are attached to. I will tailor my approach on this basis, as well as through meeting the student and talking about what s/he finds interesting and how s/he learns best.

The method of teaching will vary between pupils as well as between subjects, most markedly between languages and sciences. However, common methods used will be explaining and clarifying any 'sticking points', going through set questions and reviewing the answers, and using creative means to bring the subject to life for the student. I strongly believe that when a student enjoys the learning process and achieves set goals, however small, his/her learning is much faster and memory is greatly improved.

Personal Description:
I'm a Beijing-born writer and teacher, winner of international prizes for Chinese writing, and author of best-selling non-fiction books. I first came to the UK in 1994, after studying history and culture in China. I'm married to a well-known British translator of Chinese, and I live in Whitley Bay.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Mandarin at Newcastle University Business School in the 1990s, when I also taught business people in companies such as Yves St. Laurent, both one-to-one and in small groups. I also gave supplementary tuition to British undergraduates in reading, writing, listening and speaking Mandarin, on a one-to-one basis.
I taught Mandarin in Hong Kong from 2000 to 2009, to all age groups, from toddlers to retirees, both privately and in companies; I taught both Cantonese speakers and non-Chinese English speakers. I also taught at the Hong Kong Open University.

Tutoring Approach:

I have worked on one-to-one and small group teaching: I like an interactive situation where tutor and student work out the student's needs together, and the tutor helps the student to meet his/her goals by acting as facilitator and learning advisor.
My focus is on learning, and not on teaching: it is the tutor's job to help the student learn better, until the point is reached where the student has become an effective and autonomous learner, and no longer needs a teacher.
Many of my students have become friends and remained friends.

Subjects
  • Mandarin
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (30 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a second year PhD student at the University of Nottingham having completed my integrated masters degree in Mathematics in the 1st Class. In my PhD I am investigating the effect of rotation on vortices in fluid flows. I hope to use my passion for teaching in further education.

Teaching Experience:

My past tutoring experience includes both GCSE and A level pupils helping them achieve the required grades to attend their university or college of choice.

At university I assist in undergraduate problems classes to assist the lectures in answering questions from the students.

I feel my age and recent undertaking of A-level and degree examinations gives a less formal and more comfortable tutoring experience whilst still maintaining a high quality of tutoring and I can understand the problems and difficulties students may come across as I will have hit these problems myself in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

Since I myself have recently completed my degree and not so long ago my A levels I feel I have an up-to-date understanding of these examinations and the perfect exam technique as well as the required academic content. I am able to empathise with students and provide techniques for understanding which worked for both myself and fellow students. Furthermore having taken A level further mathematics I would also be able to offer tutoring for students taking this as a full A-level or AS-level.

Personal Description:
I did my undergraduate degree at St Andrews University and postgrad at Durham University; I've just returned from a year on research in the US. I love teaching and work for the Open University, which involves finding innovative ways to teach a large range of topics to students from 18 to 70 years old, which always makes for an interesting experience. I'm living in Newcastle and love the North East in general.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching at degree level since 2002, I have over 250 hours of face-to-face teaching experience.

I also have a Durham Teaching and Learning Award, a peer- and student- nominated annual prize given to 3-5 teachers in the university to recognise outstanding achievement.

I've taught in both the Philosophy and Theology & Religion departments of Durham University, as well as teaching Introductions to Arts & Humanities for the Open University. I frequently teach study skills and help address specific students' concerns about how to improve.

My experience also includes work in the Access/Widening Participation arena, and I have taught a variety of topics for the 14-18 age range, including work on the Sutton Trust Summer School programme.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is best summed up as "everyone is different". Finding out what someone enjoys, what they're good at, and how they think, is the first step in helping them get the most they can out of any topic or situation. The ways that people learn, and the things that fire their imaginations, are diverse - but the expectations of coursework and exams don't always recognise that. I see my job as not simply preparing people to pass a test or master a skill, but as helping them to discover what works best for them as a student, and giving them the confidence to approach new challenges successfully.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Imogen and I'm 23 years old. I am a recent graduate from the University of Kent and completed a year abroad in Paris. I studied French, with modules in International Relations, Politics and German. I previously studied the International Baccalaureate instead of A Levels and whilst doing this tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French - she went from a C to an A with just simple tutoring of the basics. I graduated with a 2:1, with all my grammar modules being awarded a first.
My year abroad was spent with a French company, improving my French by being surrounded by solely French speakers! I returned from working and living in the French language feeling hugely confident in my foreign language abilities across all disciplines (listening, reading, writing and speaking).
Currently, I work in construction but use my French to liaise with occasional sub contractors and supply chain. Tutoring is my way of continuing with French before being able to get employed by a French construction company down the line.
I believe that I have a friendly approach to tutoring - and I am confident in my approach with my current 8 and 11 year old students who are mentored in different ways.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned, I tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French. Over the 9 month period, we improved on her basic grammar skills and reading and listening skills also. From this site, which I joined in December 2012, I gained one student very quickly and during our 4 months tutoring sessions, she improved her basic understanding tremendously, progressing from a D to a B for her oral exam in April.
My tutoring has continued as part of my job at a school, holding outside the classroom small group sessions.
I am currently tutoring siblings, who are moving to France this year with their family. My approach varies with each of them and I have already seen leaps and bounds of improvement from them both!
My success rate demonstrates my ability to work well as a tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

In terms of my approach to tutoring, I like to assess what the tutee finds difficult and try and work in a different way to how they are accustomed to to see if it helps at all. I draw a lot from my experiences as a student as I have found the ways in which I have been taught very easy to understand. I would like to say that my approach is a lot more suited to children because, like them, I am a student too and I understand what they are coping with and how their mind works. Listening is of key importance and I make sure that I listen to what my tutee is trying to say.

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:
Hi, I'm Matt, a highly motivated and experienced accountant providing accountancy tutoring for A-level and degree courses.

I graduated from Bristol University with a BSc in Physics with Astrophysics, then obtained an ACA accounting qualification with the ICAEW.

Now a director in an accountancy practice with over 10 years accounting experience in both practice and medium and large businesses.

A professional accountant with continual involvement in accounting and client advisory work which ensures my technical knowledge is current.

Teaching Experience:

Mentoring and training provided throughout my career to peers and graduate trainees.

Tutoring Approach:

Mentoring will be geared towards the areas of weakness with a view to ensuring you fully understand the material as well as focusing on techniques for the actual exam day.

General approach will be question based followed by detailed review and discussion.

Any areas that haven't been covered with tutoring at college or university will be taught in detail before question practice is used.

The material provided by the college or university will be used as a starting point to any tutoring to ensure all course material is covered, however additional material drafted by myself will be used when necessary.

  • 11+ (secondary) (50 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (50 p.h.)

MORE INFORMATION

I have taught group and 1-1 lessons at English language schools and at home.

I aim to make my lessons fun, challenging and interactive, so my students leave each lesson feeling that they have achieved something. The content of the lessons comes mainly from the student and is always based on the student's needs. As a result, there is always a wide range of topics which we can look at in each lesson.

Lessons can be either 1-1 or groups, at my home or at the student's office / home.

If you are not able to do lessons face-to-face, I also offer online lessons via Skype.

My lesson prices are competitive and are given below:

15 per hour (on Skype)
20 per hour (in person)

Lesson times and length are flexible and suit the student's requirements.

References, proof of ID and other relevant documents can be provided if required.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to ensure that each lesson is an enjoyable, creative and challenging experience for the student(s), and that different skills are practised. A wide variety of activities are used to ensure that the students remain engaged with and focused on the lesson aims. Where possible I let the students give me the language rather than 'feed' the language to them. The aim is always to give the students the space they need to learn, and to help them make the most of the learning opportunities presented in each lesson.

Here are some of the things my students have said:

1. Benoit
Date of feedback: 26 October 2014
Company: ArcelorMittal
"Hi Mark. First of all, I would like to thank you again for that great week spent in Portsmouth. I really enjoyed that way of working, that way of teaching.
I came back to France on Friday and I'm convinced that my English improved during that stay. Even if one week remains too short to realize huge improvement.
Anyway, I'm trying to follow your advice and I've podcasted many '6 minutes' on BBC. Iread a lot of English texts as well.
Hope to keep that motivation.
Thanks and have a nice week, Benoit (Ben)

Personal Description:
Im a German chemist and biochemist with many practical experiences in analytical as in applied chemistry. From 1990 to 2000 I led the first government accredited private laboratory for environmental chemistry in Leipzig, Eastern Germany. Later I was working as a consultant and surveyor for projects of microbiological soil remediation and drinking water treatment. Over 20 years I was active in R&D of technical processes and devices for water purification by new chemical and biochemical methods. This packed knowledge of theory and practise is the base of all my lessons I can give to my students. On different institutes I taught prospective physicians, pharmacy and chemical technicians for respective graduation. So I was also a private lecturer at the Biochemical Department of the Leipzig University and some different professional educational institutes for some while.
Science needs freedom of thinking and speech. Unfortunately the political development of Germany lead more and more to a totalitarian society. Thats why currently Im looking for a new homeland in Wales and give all my knowledge to open-minded and inquisitive students. By the way since 2009 Im the director of two british companies for selling natural remedies on the one hand and helping expats on the other hand.

Teaching Experience:

1981 - 1986 Medical Institute, Biochemical Department, University of Leipzig, Germany
1990 - 2005 Thesis Adviser for 5 graduants
since 2002 Private Lecturer on different professional education instituts for adult education (retraining, masters, technicians)

Tutoring Approach:

Every person is unique. Nobody is talentless. You can reach everything what you really want by individual training by adjusted learning tempo according to your understanding . I can help you with my whole experience and with my knowledge. I modernly think and I am an advocate of the lifelong learning. Carpe diem. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

I will use GoToMeeting for my lessons.
