Personal Description:
I'm Javier, a native speaker of Spanish from Malaga (Spain), based in Thirsk (Yorkshire). Last year I finished a degree of primary education teaching from the University of Granada (Spain), therefore, I am fully qualified as a Primary and Secondary teacher (Holding QTS). At the moment I am teacher assistant in Cundall Manor School and Carlton Miniott School. I also have a lot of experience with learning difficulties as I have helped my younger brother all his studying life through his dyslexia. I am really passionate about teaching languages, I love my job.

Tutor of Spanish. I'm actually tutoring Spanish to adults. One-to-one, groups or online lesson developed with Skype. All levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient and tailor my lessons to individual needs because I understand that every student is unique. My aim is to build confidence in speaking and using languages by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practice or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. Depending on the student, the lesson can be more structured or more relaxed but I always want to try and make them enjoyable! I felt that this approach got a great response from my private students in the past. At the end of the day, I want the student to be happy!

I am familiar with all the last books of Spanish, like ´´Mira 1,2,3´´, ´´Viva´´, or ´´Studio´´

I love new technologies, I like giving them resources as ´´linguascope´´ which they can use to play and practice contents in their free time ; they can put into practice what we have learned in our lesson.

Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching and consider myself both easy going and approachable, whilst being firm and demanding enough to get the best out of any potential student. I graduated with a 2:1 in Biochemistry (with a year in industry) from the University York. Following from my undergraduate degree I obtained an MRes with distinction in Molecular Plant Biology and Biotechnology at Imperial College London. This was followed by a further MRes with distinction in Urban Sustainability and Resilience at University College London. I am currently undertaking an Engineering doctorate at University College London, where my research area focuses on the production of algal biomass. The work falls within the fields of Biochemical and Environmental Engineering, and I have recently obtained research grants to pursue my work.

Teaching Experience:

At university I would often take part in student led tutorials and workshops, allowing me to hone my teaching and listening skills. I currently demonstrate in undergraduate laboratory classes and lead seminar discussions within my department. This university teaching experience is coupled with considerable prior activity in tutoring both friends, family and students of all ages in scientific subject areas, with high levels of success. I am currently tutoring key stage 3, and GCSE biology, chemistry and physics.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an informal teaching style and seek to understand the particular educational requirements of each individual tutee. To this end I will endeavor to promote educational development through note taking, written exercises, case studies, question and discussion periods, as well as with independent study. When the time comes for formal examinations the learning focus will shift to past paper practice and improving general examination technique. I have a firm belief in always being approachable for any type of question, great or small and l like to foster an inquisitive relationship with my tutee.

Personal Description:
Unlike most tutors, I am a qualified and successful Physics teacher.

I am an experienced and fully qualified secondary school teacher in Science with a specialism in Physics. I have vast experience of tutoring from year 7 up to A-level and unlike other tutors I am also a qualified teacher who is currently teaching in the classroom. This allows me to be up-to-date with curriculum changes, coursework requirements and thorough knowledge of areas which students struggle with in all aspects of Science. I am also a six form school tutor which means that I understand the requirements for entry into six form and the UCAS process.

I am originally from Wales and have been living in North London for 14 years. I consider myself to be friendly and conscientious. Education is an important tool and I enjoy working with children and seeing them be the best that they can be.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a secondary school Physics teacher with 6+ years experience. I am also responsible for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) at my school. Both of my parents were teachers and tutors (Head of Department in Science and SENCO) whilst I was growing up. Therefore teaching and education have always been an important part of my life.
I am a teacher and have taught 11-19 year old students in three comprehensive mixed schools in various boroughs in London including Hillingdon Borough, Camden and Haringey.
I am currently tutoring a number of students to achieve their best in AS Physics (AQA/EDEXCEL/OCR board) and teaching A-level OCR Physics at school. I have vast experience teaching KS3 Science and KS4 every board.

Tutoring Approach:

Each child is different, so I like to design a plan after first finding out where the problems arise. Every child is different and I find that you cannot treat every child in the same way. I follow the syllabuses and specification, as these are my main tools as well as past exam papers........practice makes perfect!

It is great to see their confidence growing in the subject and hopefully their enjoyment!

Personal Description:
I have been teaching privately for over 14 years and I have been teaching on-line for over 3 years and I am passionate about teaching Modern Foreign Languages. I graduated from Reading University in 1980 having also studied at Grenoble University in France followed later by a TEFL course at Swansea University.After teaching French and German in a secondary school I moved into Exporting. Since 2000 I have been running my French and German Tuition and Translation company. I make regular visits to France and Germany and have many contacts in both of these countries. I regularly work also as a Translator of French and German into English. Italian is another language which I teach having studied this fantastic language at Reading University. English as a Foreign Language is another subject with which I have great experience and I often work for SILC which is a French company that sends French teenagers to the U.K. to improve their English. I have organised educational visits for French teenagers also in the U.K. on behalf of SILC.

TUITION ALSO VIA SKYPE.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught privately for over 14 years and previously worked as a French and German teacher in a secondary school and have taught French and German to adults at Leisure Centres for over six years. For the past 14 years I have taught French and German to all levels including University level with some excellent results at GCSE and A Level. I also teach English as a Foreign Language and regularly organise study visits for French teenagers in my area. I have also taught Italian online to Beginners and also supply Tuition via a Skype connection to students for all of my subject areas. Teaching via Skype is an extremely effective means of teaching a language providing both visual, oral and written back-up with the student interacting with the Tutor. I have worked for Apricot Online Learning which provides Tuition via Skype for students who are unable to attend school on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very sympathetic approach to Tutoring and always get the best from my students. I have many years of Teaching experience and always check at every stage that the student can use the concepts which he or she has been taught. Teaching is done in a relaxed manner which puts the student at ease and this helps them to achieve their full potential. As stated above all of my students have passed all of their examinations in either French or German while studying with me at GCSE and A Level. I am passionate about my vocation as a Tutor and always go the extra mile to achieve the very best results for all of my students. Tutoring requires commitment and a total dedication to the role of mentor and educator.
My job is not only to educate but also to inspire and lead by example through proven methods which maximise a student's potential.

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Personal Description:
My name is Filomena and I am a native Italian girl graduated in Comparative Languages and Cultures. I have attended a course to teach Italian to foreigners, I have a long experience in studying languages so I well know the difficulties that one can have in learning a foreign language!

I really like to travel and discover new cultures and traditions. I have been to England many times, for studying and working and the last time I have spent three months in Leeds for an internship at the "Temple Newsam". I have also been many times to China in the last years for studying and working.
I am very patient and relaxed person, openmind, hardworking, polite and ready to face new challanges. I like to build bridges between differend cultures, I can be your connection to Italy, my beautiful country! I know a lot about my culture, traditions, food, music, art... I do not want to be just a "Language teacher" but something more, give you the best approach to my country!

Teaching Experience:

At the moment I am teaching Italian in an immigration centre in Italy for the basic level. I have already taught Italian when I was in China and I prepared a class of chinese students to the CILS exam for the level A1. I also do tandem with some university erasmus students and I am always ready to help all my foreign friends with Italian language!

Tutoring Approach:

I can be your on-line Italian Tutor for all levels. One-to-one lesson or other arrangements can be provided. Basically, I try to understand first which use of the language you want to have and then start to arrange a way of teaching (for example: if you need the language just for travelling in Italy or if you need to learn Italian in an Accademic way, or just to keep your knowledge of Italian).

I can give you a lot of online resorces to improve your language skills or we can follow your books! I can also provide you lessons on everything concerning Italy and Italian culture.

!!PLEASE, NOTE THAT I CAN OFFER ONLY ONLINE LESSONS!!

Personal Description:
I am an LSE graduate in BSc Accounting and Finance and have also obtained postgraduate qualifications in Statistics, I am currently a dedicated and passionate full-time tutor, I am passionate about my subjects and dedicated to seeing students do well.

I was privileged enough to be afforded a very good private education and originally decided to take on tutoring as an opportunity to share my knowledge with others and allow them to realise their full potential and all the other benefits of a good education.

Five main factors have contributed to my success so far namely,
- I have high expectations of myself and my students, I believe every student can achieve the best grades with the right help

- I instil confidence and a "can do" attitude in students, regularly reminding them that nothing is "hard" if you have been shown how to do it properly

- I listen to students, this keeps lessons interactive and ensures I have constant update on their thought process and current understanding

- I am relatively young so students feel comfortable engaging with me and enjoy learning from me

- I ensure continuous support for students, I make myself available for questions via phone or e-mail throughout the day to ensure the support does not end at the end of the lesson!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Mathematics and Economics tutor for 4 years in this time my reliability and skill has enabled me to develop a good reputation which has allowed me to have a consistent base of 12 - 16 students on a weekly basis.

Career Highlights!

- Academic Year 2011 - 2012 I helped a student who was predicted a C grade at GCSE to achieve a coveted place at Eltham College after passing a difficult 16+ exam

- Academic year 2012 - 2013 I helped a student who scored a D grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 level after 8 months of tuition. He was the only student to score an A grade in his school since 2007.

- Academic Year 2013 - 2014 I helped a student who scored a C grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 Economics with an impressive 97% in Unit 1, 99% in Unit 2 and 100% in Unit 3. He had also had three previous tutors who he was dissatisfied with before coming to me.

Further Teaching Experience

At degree level I have taught Macro and Micro Economics to students attending Russell Group Universities, this year I helped an international student from Ukraine achieve over 70% in both Macro and Micro Economics.

I have taught A-Level Economics across Edexcel, AQA and OCR syllabuses with equal success. I have never had a student score below a B grade and have had several students score over 90% in modules.

I have taught Mathematics at A-Level, GCSE, 16+ and 11+ common entrance levels and covered AQA, Edexcel and iGCSE exam boards. I have helped students gain coveted places at top independent schools such as Eltham College and Bromley High. I have also helped students improve from as low as C grades at GCSE to A grades, however my most notable success this year came when I helped an AS Maths student who scored a D grade in January achieve a B grade in May with an impressive 84% in C1.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach embodies a long term approach to learning I teach students in a way which will allow them to be successful in higher study as well as their more short term exams. I also try to make students more confident in their abilities overall not just the material I teach.

I strongly believe that a solid understanding of basic principles is the foundation to success in academic study. I concentrate a lot of time and energy on instilling these basic principles in students.

I am also a strong believer in understanding over 'rope learning' I ensure that pupils understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, never encouraging them to simply regurgitate what they have seen previously.

I also encourage practical understanding of concepts frequently referencing real world examples and using objects to illustrate theory as I recognise that theory on its own given no relevance is harder to remember. Supplementary to this I also relate teaching material to potential job roles and tasks which I have knowledge of (mostly Banking or Business related) in order communicate usefulness to students and keep things interesting.

Finally I believe teaching successfully is ultimately about listening to your students I constantly encourage students to question things and express anything they don't understand or are not too sure of. If a student looks unsure or hesitant about something I will ask open questions or get them to explain concepts to me in order to fully grasp their understanding. This also helps build their confidence and ability to express themselves accurately.

Personal Description:
For the last four years I have worked full time as a tutor but have tutored alongside studying for seven years. I am a graduate of Durham (BA History), and UCL (MA Central and South Eastern European Studies).

My main areas of interest are humanities and languages and I am an enthusiastic and passionate communicator. I currently hold a DBS check certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced tutor, having spent the past seven academic years tutoring a range of subjects, and have a passion for teaching and communication. Having been a part time participant of mainstream education until recently, and having tutored many different pupils at different levels in different subjects in that time, I have a clear understanding of the structure of current A-Level courses and the necessary requirements. I have a very high success rate with many of my pupils achieving the highest grades and all demonstrating a marked improvement since tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring approach to the tutee's needs and the subject being taught. Generally, I do a combination of exam technique, subject revision and coursework support. I have made many an amusing yet educational quiz and strongly encourage pupils to achieve the best grade possible.

Please also note: Tutoring is my sole occupation and consequently I require at least 24 hours' notice for cancellations otherwise I have to charge in full for the missed lesson.

Personal Description:
I did nothing but one-to-one private biology tuition, based in Oxford, for 24 years and was widely regarded as 'Oxford's Premier Biology Tutor'. I have now moved away from Oxford and have been offering my services online only, nationally and worldwide, for the past three years via the medium of Skype and 'Scribblar' - an interactive online whiteboard that is better than face-to-face tuition as there is zero travelling and waiting time and cost and it is more intimate and concentrated than 'in-person' tuition. I charge £60 per hour normally but offer a £10 per hour discount for tuition before 3 pm on weekdays.

Teaching Experience:

27 years (the last three totally online) of one-to-one tuition in A-level, IB and GCSE biology.

Tutoring Approach:

Stick to the specification. Do ALL the past paper questions and go through them with the mark schemes. Take the exam. and get on with your life.

I like to work in a very methodical and structured fashion and not confuse effective work with hard work. The students who say at the end "yes, I learned biology - but, better still I learned how to study" are the ones with whom I know I have really succeeded.

Apart from an internet connection all that you need for tutorials is a thin A4 ring binder with a copy of the specification punched and put into the front and some colored dividers in the back. If you are a retake student I ask you to highlight the specification (in yellow with solid highlighter if you are quite happy with the content; dotted highlighter if you are a bit unhappy with it and no highlighter if you have not done it or have forgotten it). This will tell me where to start and I can estimate to within an hour or so how many lessons will be needed to 'reteach' the syllabus. Effectively I write a textbook for you and give you notes (to be filed in the colored dividers) via e-mail and Scribblar (my interactive online whiteboard) to fill in any gaps in your knowledge. As I cover the specification I highlight my copy in pink so that I can monitor progress. I have CDs of questions that I can post to you that you can work through - each CD is specific to one exam. board and contains not only the most recent AS/A2 papers and mark schemes but also the preceding many years of papers for that board, chopped up into topic headings. So, for example, it will take an hour to 'cover' The Heart and then I'll give you the questions specifically on the heart on that board to do before the next tutorial. It is all very straightforward and actually rather less hard work than doing it in a slapdash, non-systematic fashion. The study skills that you will learn will stand you in good stead throughout life.

I can also advise on coursework/practicals.

Please note that I ONLY tutor online nowadays.

Personal Description:
I am a primary school teacher who lives in Brighton. I love living in Sussex and exploring the countryside and the amazing opportunities that there are within the county.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Primary Schools for 7 years now. I have taught years 4,5 and 6 so have an enhanced understanding of the curriculum requirements for this age as well as the expectations for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
I am still in the teaching profession and have an up to date understanding of current educational change.
Last year I was a personal tutor to 4 children all of whom were Year 6 and all of whom achieved Level 4 or above in their Maths SATs paper.
I have just completed a maths specialism course at Brighton university which has really developed my understanding of misconceptions children have in mathematics. I am just about about to start a Masters in Maths Education in order to continue to enhance my understanding in this area.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in identifying what it is that is acting as a barrier to children's learning, each child is an individual so I therefore believe that they will require highly personalised learning experiences in order to help them make progress. So the tutoring experience your child will receive will be highly tailored to their needs.

I also feel strongly that learning should be meaningful and multi-sensory so I ensure that my teaching style allows the children to recognise the applications of their learning in the real world and is represented in as many different styles as possible to ensure that the learning is embedded and meaningful.

Personal Description:
I am a University graduate with a first class degree in Politics from Northumbria University. I completed a very well-received dissertation on the subject of citizenship in America. I plan on beginning a Master's degree in Political Theory at the University of Manchester in the next academic year.

Teaching Experience:

While taking my A levels I was a prefect, and my duties included helping English students in years seven and eight with their work. My Politics A level was self-taught with two other students. While at University I have served on the committee of the Debating society, where aside from helping students express their ideas, the training also often involved providing concise explanations of current events and related political theories.
I have worked with the veteran's charity Forward Assist, teaching political understanding and general knowledge to veterans to help them in civilian life.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring is tailored according to the student's needs - whether these are to gain a broad understanding of a subject, prepare for a specific assessment in a particular area, or to develop skills applicable to many subject areas.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Oxford University Maths undergraduate with versatile interests and a passion for teaching. In love with Mathematics and hoping to become a teacher one day, I relish every opportunity I get to share my knowledge with others.

I am interested in classical music (play the violin), baroque opera and theatre. I am also writing a blog and am currently the editor-in-chief of the Oxford University Maths Society Magazine, the "Invariant".

Teaching Experience:

Co-founder and co-owner of Quill Tuition tutoring company: conducted Maths and English classes for individuals and small groups; including a Maths course for high-school students heading to leading UK universities; experienced with teaching online using interactive online whiteboard and classroom facilities (2015).

Private English tutor for adults and teenagers (2014).

Taught a high-school Maths insight course to a class of 14-year olds (2013).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that successful tutoring consists of two things: the right approach, tailored to individual needs of every student and constant repetition and revision. If my student does not understand something, I try different ways of explaining it to them for as long as it takes for them to grasp the difficult concept in question. This way I can quickly find out what learning style fits the given student and how to teach them most effectively.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced primary teacher. I have taught in Foundation, KS1 and KS2 I am able to effectively support your child in Maths or English at every stage of their primary education.

I can assist with SATs preparation, assessing and addressing key areas of learning and supporting children through practice papers and tasks.

I tutor from my home in Melton, Woodbridge. I offer flexible sessions of between 45 minutes and 2 hours.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully tutored many children from Year One to Year Six and can plan an effective, individualised program of support to significantly boost your child's progress.

I am an experienced primary school teacher. I have worked with children from Foundation to Year 6 and have supported children with a range of SEN. I also have significant experience working with children with English as an additional language. I have an excellent understanding of the demands of the new curriculum and have undertaken a range of training and CPD including specialist phonics training.

I now tutor full time but ensure I keep up to date with changes in schools by undertaking a small amount of intervention and cover work.

Due to an increase in the days I tutor I have a couple of sessions available (November 2016), please inquire and I will do my best to find a convenient time for you.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether your child is struggling and needs revision and reinforcement or is very able and needs extension I can offer tailored support to meet their needs. I adjust my approach to meet the needs of each individual but I am always calm and supportive while making sure learning is the focus at all times. I plan engaging activities which take account of individual interests wherever possible. I always include computer based games and activities to add enjoyment and include a sticker chart reward system which children love (even the older ones!).

Personal Description:
Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

Hi there and thanks for viewing my profile. My name is Paul and I have been studying, researching and teaching politics since 1988 when I first started my undergraduate degree at Leeds. I gained my first degree with first class honours at Leeds, completed a PhD in Politics at Leeds in 1998 and subsequently lectured, tutored and researched in Politics / Political Economy / International Relations and European Studies at the University of Portsmouth from 1998-2015.

I took a career break from September 2015 to develop some personal projects but continue to offer tuition in politics.

My primary specialism is in the crossover between Politics and Economics (Political Economy) in a theoretical, international, global, European and policymaking context. Many students taking Politics or IR degrees struggle with the economic components of their degree, perceiving it to be a different and mathematical subject...Economic ideas and concepts are in fact central to any deep understanding of politics and IR but, happily, they are very much easier to understand than many students assume. One of my biggest strengths as a tutor is to be able to make economic ideas accessible, interesting, engaging and relevant to the non-specialist and to the student of Politics / IR. By connecting the economics very clearly to mainstream areas of politics such as political thought and public policy and by focusing on the non-mathematical aspects of economic thought, I have been able to help students overcome their initial fears about political economy and come to see it as both the fundamental - and fun - part of all social and political science .

In addition to my specialisms in PE/IPE, I have broad and deep subject knowledge having taught across the full range of Politics, Government, European Studies and International Relations subjects over the years so it is very unlikely that you would be studying something in this broad area of political and social sciences that I would not be able to cover.

And: I am very flexible and approachable: just ask if you have any queries at all!

Teaching Experience:

Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

I was Principal Lecturer in Politics/IR at Portsmouth University, Associate Head of the School of Social Historical and Literary Studies (2003-11) before moving up to a Faculty job. Overall I taught in HE at Portsmouth from 1998 until September 2015. I decided to take a voluntary career break in 2015 to develop a variety of my own pet projects but I continue to offer tuition on a private basis across the social sciences to undergraduate, postgraduate and A-level students.

I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and previously the ILT since 2001, and am currently applying for Senior Fellowship status.

In addition, I am an experienced personal and study skills tutor, a role I always took seriously at University. I see the role of a tutor as partly that of a 'coach', facilitating as much as possible your own development as a student. I honed this approach over time as a lecturer and it was especially useful in dissertation supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at Portsmouth I was nominated for and won several teaching awards including 'Most Innovative Lecturer' and 'Best Feedback'. A major strength of my teaching is that I give very positive, encouraging and constructive developmental feedback on your ideas, plans and writing combined with broad and deep subject knowledge.

As a lecturer I am highly engaging, dynamic and open and I have a gift to explaining complicated concepts in very clear and accessible ways using stories, metaphors and analogies. Indeed I am currently writing a book in which this approach is used to teach Economic concepts to non-specialists without any numbers at all - purely through stories, analogies and metaphors.

In addition to offering private tutoring I am also an accredited trainer and life coach, as well as a proof reader. So the skills sets I bring to private tuition are more diverse than just lecturing / teaching although of course I also do have that extensive classroom and tutoring experience you require (18 years!).

My main specialisms are: international and global political economy, economics for non-specialists and social scientists, public policy, British politics, comparative politics, political ideas and theory, political ideologies, international relations.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Matthew, I am currently studying for my masters in architecture at the Architectural Association. I am a graduate of Princeton University and St. Paul's School, London. I recieved top marks at Further Maths A-Level and studied Maths at a higher level while at Princeton.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching my peers while at Princeton University and have continued tutoring since moving back to the UK. Over the past three years I have taught students at various levels and abilities; from higher level GCSE to Further Mahs A-Level, as well as US university entrance exams (SAT and ACT).

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is to teach a full understanding of the material, so that the student is able to engage with material in way that means they can tackle any problem. Often in higher level exams questions will have many topics layered on top of one another, so a deep level of understanding and an ability to apply mathematical methods is required. In my experience the best way to deal with this is for the student to not only know the methods, but also understand why they are being applied. I have also found that this understanding is difficult to grasp from a conventional classroom setting.

After this process I then turn to focus on exam technique specific to the exam board the student is testing through.
