Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic mathematician with an ability to communicate well. I have a first class degree in Maths and Chemistry. I would like to help students by either guiding and supporting them in their exam preparation or by developing their confidence and increasing their skillbase in maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a large comprehensive school in Leeds teaching 11-18yrs for the past seven years. I have experience of taking students through SATs, GCSEs, and A-Levels both in school and in private tuition with excellent results. In addition to this, I am an examiner for AQA and Edexcel exam boards, marking Alevel papers. As such, I am very well qualified to help students develop a more effective exam technique that maximises their marks.

Tutoring Approach:

I give one hour or two hour lessons which can either be in support of, and running along side, the student's school work or individually tailored lessons covering specific areas of weakness which students find particularly helpful in preparation for exams.

Personal Description:
An experienced and friendly female tutor with many years experience of teaching mathematics at all levels and one to one tutoring with excellent results. As an exam marker I have a good idea of what is expected in final exams and have a keen ability of giving confidence and encouraging my students to achieve to the best of their ability. Have current CRB certificate.
I am an experienced and friendly maths tutor with many years experience of teaching mathematics at all levels (Nationals, Highers, GCSE, HEFC, HN and A-Level) and private tutoring with excellent results. As an examination marker I have a good idea of what is expected in the final exams. In particular I use strategies to increase my students' confidence and learning skills so they become independent learners using their problem solving skills under exam condition. I endeavour to encourage my students to try and achieve to the best of their ability. I have a valid and current CRB certificate obtained by my employer

Teaching Experience:

Over 20 years of teaching, lecturing, one to one tutoring and many happy and successful students. Even those who did not really like maths in class, often stop me in the street comment on how much they have benefited from their mathematical learning, use it in their part time job or it has lead to a good career, or they are just happy to be able to do a monthly budget.
One of the signs of a good tuition is the returning customer and i have had the joy of teaching siblings from the same family for several years.

Tutoring Approach:

'There are two good things in life' according to S Poisson: 'learning maths and teaching maths'. Of course a little extreme, but i would say that enabling someone else to develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as using and applying this ability to solve equations and carry out complex calculations, for me are some of the most exciting aspects of maths tutoring. The approach i incorporate into all my teaching is to enthuse, motivate and empower my students, so they develop a deep understanding of mathematical processes and thereby learn the skills needed for each particular topic. I also incorporate puzzles and interactive resources into my lessons.

Personal Description:
Hello - I am a friendly and approachable teacher who is based in Surrey and uses a variety of teaching methods and techniques to help students consolidate their understanding, progress and achieve to the best of their ability. I have taught students of all ages and abilities and have received positive feedback from my students. I believe that questions should never be considered irrelevant or silly and that as each student is an individual, different methods and approaches may be required to aid their understanding. Please feel free to contact me for further information or guidance.

Teaching Experience:

9 Years teaching experience in Secondary schools. I have taught both boys and girls of all ages and also adults. I teach Latin to GCSE level and Classical Civilisation / Ancient History to A-level. I am also able to assist students with study skills, improve their English language skills and have knowledge of other languages such as French and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have an idea of what topics the student has already studied and which text books they are currently working from. The first session will be to find out what areas the student feels they are struggling in and what topics need more focus and consolidation. As each student is an individual, the sessions will be tailored to their unique learning needs and I will help them to gain as much as they can from each session and hopefully improve their understanding, their achievement grades and confidence in their abilities.

Personal Description:
I have a passion for Science and hope to go into laboratory research. I recently finished my Masters by Research in Biological Sciences at the University of Manchester, graduating with Distinction.
In June 2015 I finished my BSc in Biology from Imperial College London with First Class Honours. . My A level grades were A* A A in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics (respectively). I am committed and enthusiastic in everything I do and I love new experiences and challenges.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years and have had over a dozen students, ranging from 4-28 years of age.

In addition to my professional tutoring:
-In the lab I teach new practical techniques and knowledge to students and my peers
-I am training to become an assistant instructor in Women's Self Defence with the charity that I do martial arts with
-I have a younger sister whom I have helped with academia since she was a child, improving her knowledge and confidence.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is something that I thoroughly enjoy. It makes me feel like I have made a difference when I am able to help someone better understand and apply something that, up until then, teachers or peers have failed to do.
A large part of my role as a tutor, particularly with younger students, is to improve their self-confidence, I give them additional knowledge, confidence to apply and convey it and confidence to ask questions.

I believe that the path to exam success involves three things:
-Thorough knowledge of subject material
-Exam technique (what to write/say to get the marks)
-On-the-day performance

I feel that my job as a tutor is to assess these points in my students and to help them with whatever stage they require to boost their performance.

YOUNGER STUDENTS: when tutoring children I find that it is important to continuously change the activity or topic every 5-10 minutes so that the student is engaged and gets the most out of the lessons. I have learned many of the techniques for tutoring children during my training and experience as a Young Scout Leader.
In my lessons I play games based on the material and use tools such as white boards, the feedback I receive is that my students really enjoy and look forward to our lessons.

SECONDARY LEVEL & OLDER STUDENTS: I feel it is important for my students to understand how the topic they are learning fits into the wider picture. Often I find that the reason my students struggled with some subject areas is that they were not taught the broader concepts or knowledge was assumed, this is particularly common with Chemistry. I aim to fill this gap so that students learn and understand the syllabus learning points as opposed to just memorizing them.
With Maths I go through many practice questions with my students. I set a question and we will work on it together or independently, then I will give the answer and show my working. My students find it very helpful that I work alongside them and provide them with a full solution including method, as opposed to just an answer.

Personal Description:
I graduated from MSc Financial Computing at UCL with a distinction and did my bachelor degree in Mathematics (Upper Second Class) at UCL.

Having spent my childhood in Luxembourg, I am fluent in 4 languages (German, French, English and Luxembourgish) and semi-fluent in Swedish. My father is French and my mother is German - thus I am at a native level in both French and German.

Thus I have been tutoring up to 6 students at a time in Mathematics, German and French.

Since I have a strong background in music, having played the piano since the age of 3 and having won several international piano competitions as well as considering a career as a concert pianist, I have also tutored several students in Piano.

I am currently working as a Tableau developer and am thus more than happy to offer tutoring in Tableau.

For further information regarding my CV, it can be found on LinkedIn.

Teaching Experience:

I take pride in my tutoring. All my students have managed to reach their goals, be it personal achievements or needing to be prepared for exams. My most promising student started out with an average of F in German and, a year later, successfully completed his German GCSE with an A.

Tutoring Approach:

All of my students enjoy my teaching style, as it is less formal and thus more relaxed. It has made all of my students motivated as, from my overall experience, the last thing a kid or teenager wants to do outside of school is a lesson that reminds them of school. To make lessons more fun, I am using several apps and websites that enable for a better interactivity within the lessons and allow me to track the progress through some of the apps later on and showcase it to the student's parents. From my experience, this way of teaching enables them to be open to a bigger intake of knowledge and results in faster and more detailed learning.

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.

Personal Description:
I am an English native and have a friendly attitude towards everyone. I have gained a drama and theatre studies degree and bring confidence to everything I do. I enjoy helping others. I enjoy going to the theatre and reading as many books as I can. I also love to draw.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in a summer school teaching ages between 8-17 English as a foreign language. I have also taught drama to a range of age groups

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy using my drama knowledge to help students learn quicker. I enjoy making lessons fun and bringing the world of English speaking into the classroom. I like to use games and role playing within the classroom to make the atmosphere as enjoyable and relaxed as possible whilst still being educational.

Personal Description:
Hello there!
I am a Mothertongue Italian teacher and actor. I have studied Linguistics and taught English and Spanish in Rome and Italian in the UK. I've also acted for many years on stage & cinema. Acting and teaching are surely what I enjoy the most in life.

Teaching Experience:

I have studied Linguistics at Tor Vergata University in Rome and I've been teaching English and Spanish in Italy and Italian in England for three years now.
Being also an actor and enjoying teaching, I am an acting coach and teacher as well.

Tutoring Approach:

FREE TRIAL! THE FIRST HOUR OF LESSON IS FREE!

First of all, I check my students' level and goals. Starting from there, I am an intense teacher and coach and I give the best that I can at all times, keeping the time we spend together useful and enjoyable for my students.
I have always been very satisfied at the general success of my students, that's probably because I am quite empathic and I always chose my teaching method basing it on my student's personality and will-to-learn.

I am based in Streatham Hill and I tutor at my place or I can travel in the London area.

Personal Description:
Bonjour!
My name is Tanguy, I come from Southern France and live in London, where I write my PhD thesis (English). I am deeply committed to teaching and learning. I enjoy facing up to new challenges. I am a hard-working person, with a zest of originality to make it interesting!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked (and mostly taught) in many different countries so far, which has been very profitable for my teaching practice.
I began as a French language assistant in 2006-2007 in a secondary school in South London.
Two years later, during my MA in Montpellier, I became a tutor at the department of English of my home university.
I went to the US in late 2009 to be a French language instructor at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I taught a class of 20 beginners (aged 18 to 25) on a daily basis, which was extremely motivating. A few months later, I crossed the border and offered one-to-one tuition in Montreal, Canada.
In London since 2010, I achieved the status of Associate Practitioner delivered by the Higher Education Academy in February 2014. This qualification is in line with the UKPSF standards for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.
I am now teaching at Goldsmiths on the seminar 'Approaches to Text' (Department of English).

Tutoring Approach:

The teaching I offer is tailored to your specific needs. I try to relate to your own interest to facilitate the learning process. My teaching method is fundamentally active: we will work towards the goal that you will have determined beforehand through a constant engagement with the language on your part. Lat but not least, I try to make my teaching fun whenever I can!

Personal Description:
I have an attachment for academia and all that it entails (research, education, and scholarship). Following four years of undergraduate study, i underwent a year of Masters study at Coventry University where i graduated with a Distinction in International Relations. However, i have not always been a student. I have taught civil education for a year at a secondary (high) school and this was followed by a year as an Assistant lecturer at a college where i lectured on political science.

I have valuable experience as both a learner and a teacher. Thus, this aids my understanding of what a student needs and the pressures associated with the academic environment. Having this understanding, i will be able to employ skills learned as a teacher and lecturer so as to relieve pressure from my students and ensure their needs are met.

So, that's me in a nutshell. I will gladly elaborate on anything further.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught and lectured at various levels of academia. I have a year of experience teaching at a community based secondary school. This was followed by a year lecturing in the capacity of an Assistant Lecturer at a college of education. This is further complimented by years acting as a personal tutor to academic colleagues.

Tutoring Approach:

I adjust my approach to fit the requirements of my tutee. I ascertain what learning style appeals to my student and i adopt that for the lessons. The adoption of this approach is due to my understanding that all students cannot have similar learning styles. Most importantly, i am always eager to learn new methods and procedures in order to improve my technique and approach to ensure my students always have the best experience.

Personal Description:
I am Cambridge graduate and A level and GCSE biology teacher who is looking to take on a few tutees. I have over 15 years teaching experience and was head of biology at my previous school.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced A level biology tutor who has taught all of the examining board specifications. I have tutored students at all levels of ability and many of these have scored A s and gone on to Oxbridge or Russel group universities . Before becoming a teacher, I worked full time as a private tutor for 7 years which I enjoyed immensely. I have missed both the challenges and the emotional rewards of private tutoring and am now looking for students with whom I can work to help achieve their aspired grades in biology. Over the course of my teaching and tutoring I have build up a large resource of past papers, challenging and informative questions and many approaches to teaching difficult subjects. I also regularly work as an examiner on A level papers and so can offer extensive advice on exam technique and the best approaches to answering questions.

Tutoring Approach:

I am enthusiastic and patient and have been told that I offer a friendly and safe learning environment where students feel supported but also motivated and challenged to improve both their understanding and grades

Personal Description:
I am a current Psychology MSc student. I love learning, but I haven't always felt that way. I currently read one book a week, while not so long ago as a student I truly hated reading. I had a tough time with developing relevant skills, procrastination and a very limited mindset while studying for my A Levels. This resulted in many set backs, high stress and low motivation. However, I learned something that has completely transformed my life in every way. I am determined to share this with others, which is why I love working with young people.

While attempting to find a solution to my 'student problems' I developed a fascination with the human brain. I read extensively on the topics of psychology, neuroscience and learning. The knowledge and tools that I have discovered has helped me to overcome many issues that most students face daily. For this reason I have spent the last 5 years mentoring and coaching students of various ages, to empower them and motivate them to enjoy learning as much as I do.

I am interested in politics, mental health, psychology, nutrition, metaphysics and many more.

My hobbies are yoga, meditation and reading. I also volunteer as a Mentor to a young adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my current role as an Academic Learning Coach at a sixth form college I design and teach study skills workshops, lessons and support students one to one. With over 2 years spent researching how the brain learns, I teach using evidence based methods and share all my knowledge about the brain with the students. I have taught over 800 students in the last year and worked with 100s of students one to one.

As a Student Ambassador at the University of Sheffield I have over 2 years of experience teaching study skills workshops.

I have one year of experience tutoring/mentoring GCSE students in a school setting.

I have one year of experience of Mentoring A Level students in Philosophy and Ethics.

I have 2 months of experience teaching English as foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

Through my work with 100s of students I have developed a holistic approach to identifying and addressing individual needs of every student. I have created an extensive assessment form and a range of reflective activities to get to know the young person, what motivates them and what stops them from achieving their goals.

During an initial assessment I identify the young persons mindset, confidence, study skills, writing skills, thinking skills, stress management skills, organisation skills, exam skills, goal setting skills and personal development skills.

After an assessment we decide on the type and number of sessions. I then work systematically through each area using coaching and mentoring techniques. There will be a small task for a student to complete after each session.

Often it might be beneficial to work together with a parent during certain sessions.

Dealing with Procrastination
Managing Stress
Tackling Limiting Beliefs
Revision and Study Skills

Effective Analysis and Evaluation

Personal Description:
An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, I teach Maths up to A-Levels and beyond and have been teaching for 10 years now.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher (QTS) registered with UK National College of Teaching and Leadership. I work in an outstandingly high achieving Grammar school near London.

So far I have tutored over 100 students on a 1-1 basis in the past 7 years alone. This is over 4000 hours of tutoring (40 weeks for each student a year X 100 students = 4000 hours)!

Moreover, I work as a Grammar school teacher and I am required to deliver outstanding lessons in accordance with the OFSTED Framework. Hence I have an accurate and in-depth knowledge of the most recent syllabus changes and the exam boards. That combined with my daily touch of solid Maths puts myself in a very strong position to very quickly and thoroughly assess the educational needs of a student and then build upon their strengths. My lessons are Laser sharp and objective oriented wherein I intend to achieve a very concrete goal at the end of each of my tutoring sessions.

With this immense experience, I have developed an approach which is very simple. I make the lessons fun and engaging. I try to promote interest in the subject so learning Maths becomes fun and an ongoing natural process. Students take this into the school environment and start seeing the results immediately. This reduces the burden from Maths and hence my students can focus on other subjects and achieve well holistically. (It's not about getting an A* just in Maths. I know that!!)

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching Pedagogy: The vast majority of One-2-One tutors simply 'turn-up-and-teach' without adequate preparation. Maths is mostly about 'understanding', and less about 'throw up facts'. A tutor gets ONE CHANCE to impart 'understanding' in a clear and coherent way. Not having prepared and risking an incomplete, confused or incoherent explanation instills confusion in the student, rather than confidence.

Regular feedback and homework: Most tutors either set no homework at all or thoughtlessly set exercises from a textbook containing inappropriate questions. My homework is specifically written to complement the lesson, containing some questions designed for routine practice and some questions designed to challenge the student; encouraging them to 'think' and to develop their logical capacity.

Exam Practice: I give students plenty of past paper practice - but only at the right time, once they have a deep understanding of all of the individual topics within the syllabus. Far too many tutors use exam papers to 'teach' from, which means they are setting papers when the student isn't ready: The upshot of that is the student's scores fluctuate wildly and their confidence is destroyed.
The lessons are invigorating, inspirational and cutting edge as I keep a very thorough hold on my subject.

I am a dynamic tutor who aims to inspire, stimulate and motivate.

I have three years of tutoring experience in both primary and secondary English. I graduated with a double first in History from Queen Mary, University of London.

For me, it is most important that a student feels confident and comfortable as a basis for progressing academically. I aim to put students at ease and help them believe in themselves, ultimately working towards reaching their full potential.

I believe that learning should be fun and enjoyable as well as challenging and thorough.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Peloponnese in Greece 2 years ago. I studied Greek Literature - Greek Philology. Now, I have my Master's degree in Classics at Newcastle University. The final thesis of my undergraduate studies had the title 'An interpretive approach to the Prologue of Philoctetes and Ajax: the character of Odysseus'. My dissertation's topic in my postgraduate studies is ''The borderlines of sanity: the transition from madness to rationality in the heroes of Sophocles and Euripides'. I am interested in the ancient Greek texts of all the periods. However, I can teach Greek of all stages, since my mother tongue is Greek and my degree is on it.

Teaching Experience:

I used to teach Greek at students of all ages in private lessons. More specifically, I used to help them with their homework for school and prepare them for their exams. Moreover, I had completed my practice at 4th High School in Kalamata, Greece, where I was teaching ancient and modern Greek. I have experience in teaching both children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Lectures in respect to the needs of each child or adult. Preparation for homework and exams. Extra readings and homework, so as to broaden their horizons. Focus on the grammar, vocabulary and syntax.

Personal Description:
I am a practicing visual artist, community arts worker and educator working with and teaching across a variety of media including; painting, drawing and illustration, mixed media and collage, graphic design, digital photography and film making. I am a visual arts graduate and studied an MA in participatory and community arts at Goldsmiths College. I provide both practical and academic tutoring in a number of arts related subjects, for school, further education and higher education students as well as adult learners.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in various community arts and educational settings for 10 years, facilitating arts teaching sessions across a wide range of ages, abilities and backgrounds. In addition to one-to-one tutoring students at their own homes, I have also taught in schools, libraries, galleries, museums, community centres, health & social care settings, charities, youth groups, refugee centres and prisons. I believe this experience has provided me with a strong grounding and flexibility in teaching techniques, enabling me to cater my methods to the specific needs of each individual student.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and relaxed arts tutor with a good sense of humour and a strong belief that learning should be fun. I like to involve my students as much as possible in their own learning, facilitating a two-way interactive process enabling the student to take ownership of their own learning plan. I like to spend the first session with my students discussing their individual needs and goals, and deciding together on the best way to structure their learning to give them the best possible chance of producing their best work. I am a patient and understanding tutor, with a real passion and enthusiasm for my subject matter and a strong desire to help my students succeed.
