Personal Description:
Iain was born in 1986 in Dundee, Scotland into a large musical family, so unsurprisingly making music was all that he wanted to do from an early age. He first began to learn the trumpet in school aged seven, before joining his local brass band Dundee Instrumental on cornet at the age of ten. By the age of twelve, Iain had been promoted to principal cornet, a position he later went on to hold with several of Scotland's top bands, also including the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland. Many solo competitions were won along the way - including the junior section at the British Open Solo Championships at age eleven. Having gained two Trinity College diplomas before the age of eighteen, Iain took the advice of teacher David James and moved south to study music at the University of Salford, where his playing really began to blossom. Since then Iain has held positions as principal cornet with many of the UK's leading brass bands including his current seat with the world renowned Leyland Band. He has enjoyed many successful contest and concert performances, and is fast establishing a reputation as one of the finest cornet soloists of his generation, performing, adjudicating and giving master-classes as far afield as the USA, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Japan. In 2009 Iain was the recipient of a prestigious Dewar Arts award, awarded for performance in trumpet. This award allowed him to complete his postgraduate studies at Salford, graduating with an MA in Music (performance) in 2010. Iain is now a cornet tutor at the University of Salford where he is also undertaking researchinto focal dystonia in musicians, working towards a PhD. Iain recorded and released his first solo CD entitled "Vanguard" in August 2012, a release which has been met with great critical acclaim and has fast proven popular.

Iain is also an experienced guitarist and teacher of electric and acoustic guitar as well as the bass guitar.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English teacher with a PhD in English Literature from Durham University and an MA degree in English Philology from the Jagiellonian University of Krakow. Language has always fascinated me and imparting my knowledge to others has been a pleasure and a reward. I am interested in Modernist as well as contemporary literature as much as in British culture and geography. I wish to share my passion with my students in order to help them realize that learning a language is not only useful but great fun if taught and approached in the right way.

Teaching Experience:

My English teaching experience covers working for Studio Cambridge, EAC and Anglophiles Academic at their summer camps for students of various nationalities in Cambridge, York, Bath, Bishop's Stortford and Skegness among others. I have also taught at three language schools in Poland and completed teaching practice in three Polish secondary schools. I have been teaching English on a one-to-one basis for the past ten years. I have prepared four students for their A-level examinations, which they passed with flying colours. I have also taught English to children and adults of all levels and with various difficulties (e.g. dyslexia).

For the past five years, I have also taught various modules in English Literature at Durham University and I am happy to provide university tuition for English.

A significant part of my language teaching experience is now also occupied by teaching Polish, which is very close to my heart. I have been teaching Polish to speakers of other languages (both adults and children) for the past six years and I greatly enjoy both teaching online and face-to-face.

As well as a private tutor and university lecturer, I am a translator who is happy to provide interpreting and translation services.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the teacher's method and approach are crucial to the success of every student. Language can be taught in a variety of ways, but the key is to choose the method that is most fruitful in an individual case. Forcing a language in is ineffective and unprofessional. The focus should be on practice rather than theory, though both are necessary for the student to develop their language skills and the tutor needs a depth of knowledge on the subject, as well as plenty of energy and a sense of humour to make the lessons both effective and enjoyable. Theory must always be supported with lots and lots of practice - be it grammar and vocabulary exercises, games, films, music or newspaper articles - anything that will keep the student in touch with the language system. Having fun is a significant aspect of learning a language and it is also important not to neglect any of the macro skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Personal Description:
Before coming into teaching, I worked in the Music Industry as a professional session singer. The work was varied and diverse. I sang with many named artistes and toured on an international level. I also have extensive experience in the recording studio. In 2005, I deceided to 'change direction' and studied Performance Arts, gaining a BA Hons Degree in the subject in 2008.
I studied Shakespeare, Stanislavski and many other drama practioners and methods.
I feel that because of my life experience, I bring a very friendly approach to my teaching. Also, being a 'mature student' myself has added to my understanding of needing alittle 'help' at times.
My approach is a mixture of theory and practical. I like to make sure that my student understands where he/she is approaching the given subject - be it an acting method or a scripted reading.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating with honours, I went on to gain a Post Grad teaching degree (PGCE). I have been teaching singing privately for the past eight years and started teaching drama and performing arts since 2006. Whilst doing my PGCE, I was employed as a part-time lecturer for performance arts at Salford University teaching 2nd year degree students.
I have taught at a private performing schools whose ages range from 6 to 18 years old and at private acting academy that is attached to ITV studios in Leeds.
Because of all my experience, I am able to cover three subjects to any level - drama, singing and Musical Theatre.

Since 2013, I have been tutoring at my home. Please note: I have cats and dogs so be aware of this if you have any allergies.

Tutoring Approach:

On our first meeting, I like to find out just where the student is at in their given subject; what their past experiences are and what their expectations are of having extra tuition. An understanding of their strengths and weaknesses is also important to find out at an early stage so that together, we can plan a way forward.
I am a friendly, patient and easy-going person with a very good sense of humour but I take my teaching very seriously and remain quite passionate about drama and performing arts on the whole.
I always like to make sure that the student leaves my class with full understanding of the work we have done and will ensure that any questions or concerns are addressed before the end of the lesson.

  • GCSE or Standards (£20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I began studying Spanish at the age of 13. Although I had a passion for Spain and it's country since I was 9. I achieved O'level and A'level Spanish and then went on to Wolverhampton University to Study a Diploma in Languages and Business Studies in Spanish and Russian.

Teaching Experience:

I began Spanish tuition over 30 years ago. I now have my own Spanish Tuition Business where I tailor Spanish Tuition courses to suit the individual and at a pace conducive to successful learning. Two years ago I worked with the BBC on their Spanish learning programmes for key stage 3 and 4.

Tutoring Approach:

I cater for visual (learn by seeing), auditory (learn by hearing) and kinesthetic (learn by doing) learners and, in general, I find it beneficial to incorporate all of these learning approaches into a typical Spanish tuition lesson to keep it interesting and engaging.

A teacher should have the ability to identify the needs of a student and to plan and design a course pertinent to that student. A teacher should be able to recognize learning styles and adapt their teaching accordingly in order to deliver and facilitate learning. A teacher needs to assess his or her students in order to ascertain their knowledge gained and give constructive and developmental feedback. Above al, the most important quality is a student must feel free to approach the tutor with confidence and ask any question. It's easy to teach, the test is whether they have learnt. A good sense of humor is essential, no one learns when they are unhappy.

Subjects
  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£26 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English teacher. I am currently working as a tutor within schools, supply teacher and privately teaching English. I have been teaching for over ten years, eight years as a full time teacher and two years as a Tutor/Supply Teacher. I hold a QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), a PGCE English and a 2:1 BA (Honours) degree in English. I hold current CRB/police check and I am eligible to work in the UK.

I have demonstrated a flexible approach to cater for individual learning needs and to differentiate the work accordingly, ensuring the personalisation of teaching and learning. I have created resources and effective strategies to support pupils. I have extensive experiences marking GCSE coursework, assessments, GCSE speaking and listening tests, assessments including Controlled Assessment tests. I have organised and participated in workshops to support planning lessons, class activities etc.

In regards to voluntary work, I have spent a lot of time as a voluntary youth support worker at the Saint Patrick's Youth Club Letterkenny between 1984 and 1990. I have organised table tennis competitions and other sporting activities at the club. I created a special youth club magazine and was one of the co-ordinators of an exchange trip with a German youth club in 1986. As a UNICEF volunteer, I have also organised a special charity fundraising event for UNICEF. In 1988, I helped with the visit of the UNICEF Special Ambassador, Miss Audrey Hepburn to a special UNICEF event at the Westbury Hotel.

Over the years I have played a significant role in an intervention strategy of borderline pupils at key stage 3 and 4. I have extensive experience supporting pupils on a One to One basis and in small groups. I have taught mixed ability pupils in years 7, 8 and 9. I have provided appropriate advice to learners and helped many pupils reach their target level grades.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English for over ten years, eight years as a full time English teacher. I have taught very successfully in two schools during this period and have received positive feedback from parents, colleagues and from Ofsted (who rated me as a good teacher). I am passionate about teaching and committed to helping students make real academic progress. I have helped many pupils reach their target level grades. I have excellent subject knowledge and a broad understanding of the curriculum. I have demonstrated a flexible approach to cater for individual learning needs and to differentiate the work accordingly, ensuring the personalisation of teaching and learning. I am supportive and sensitive to the students/tutees needs. I am able to work with tutees with special educational needs as I will differentiate resources accordingly. I generally agree and set targets, which are regularly checked to ensure progress towards the learning outcome. In tutoring, resources are tailored to meet the learner's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring sessions are interactive, fun and stimulating as I believe it is important to help students explore and understand their skills and knowledge base. I encourage pupils to work harder by helping them build their confidence. I support each student in all aspects of learning, including homework support, speaking, listening, reading, writing, practical and functional skills, students undertake assessments to improve both their subject knowledge and examination results.

I try to be creative, but once an idea is understood, I think the key emphasis for the pupil is to practice to re-enforce confidence. I ensure that work is clearly structured and organised to allow the child not feel overwhelmed, but to understand it clearly. I work well with challenging children, with learning disabilities and with those pupils with behavioural problems. I am understanding and patient tutor who encourages all pupils to make a bigger effort.

I love this profession because you never stop learning and it is wonderful to be in this fortunate position to share my passion for this wonderful subject. I believe a tutor has to be flexible to the childs need.

Personal Description:
I am a student at Queen Margaret University, studying Speech and Language Therapy. I was born and raised in Greece, where I completed my first degree in Communication and Mass Media. I also have an HND in Healthcare and an HNC in Web Design and the CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English). I am enthusiastic about teaching, passing my knowledge onto people who are willing and/or in need of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring Greek and Ancient Greek as a part-time job back home since 2008. I have been engaged in preparing high school students for their national finals with quite satisfying results.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring a person creates a special bond with them, based mainly on trust. I adapt my tutoring techniques to fit each individual's needs. I use movies, poetry and literature for people who don't want to be bothered with textbooks. I feel that learning should be an ongoing and personalised process.

Personal Description:
Masters from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (distinction) and first class English degree from the University of St Andrews. I have experience teaching at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and tutoring Essay Writing, Drama and English. I love working with young and adult learners, helping them to achieve their goals and to enjoy the working process. I specialise in the following areas:

ENGLISH at all levels - I tutor English from primary, through key stages, to higher education levels. I help students get through their exams, enjoy literature, and achieve the grades they need.

WRITING A GOOD ESSAY FOR YOUR DEGREE - Helping students transition from writing school to university level essays in all arts subjects. This is often a difficult leap, and I provide tutoring on structuring essays, citing academic sources and referencing, and clarifying one's argument. I also tutor adult learners returning to studies after a long gap, and undergraduate university students who are adjusting to a postgraduate level of academic writing.

VOICE and PUBLIC SPEAKING - Do you have to give a presentation at work, or does your child need to feel happier speaking up in school? Are you frustrated about being told you are "softly spoken" and would like to project your voice without straining? Through voice exercises, presentation practice and relaxation exercises, I can give you the tools to speak confidently and engagingly (without that crippling fear). I adapt this work to all ages.

ACTING CLASSES and AUDITIONING FOR DRAMA SCHOOL - my acting & performance skills were honed at RADA (a lead drama school) and I use this experience to tutor students who wish to audition. I help them select monologues that suit them, and coach them through the preparation process. I use games, text exercises, movement training and mock auditions to give them the best chance of success. I also teach voice and relaxation techniques to handle nerves on the day.

CREATIVE WRITING - I have training in creative writing, playwriting and dramaturgy. If there is a story you'd like to write I can help you through the process and teach exercises to counter writer's block.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored English for a range of ages, including school students, adult learners and university students from Birkbeck, University of London. I also have experience with M.E / Chronic Fatigue young people working outside of school.

I have been a visiting tutor for the Short Courses department of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, teaching Shakespeare, contemporary text and devising theatre. My other drama tutoring work includes Leuchars Community Drama, Haringey Shed and Notes of Fun.

Tutoring Approach:

My goal is to tutor my students to feel confident in their subject, and rise to the challenge of any exams, auditions or interviews that may come their way in their academic and professional lives.

To achieve this, it is essential to me that students enjoy the tuition process. This encourages them to improve in their chosen field, without feeling forced to wrestle something they hate.

I believe that to enjoy learning, a focused one-on-one approach is essential. As schools and universities have so many students through their doors, they cannot provide full assistance for all. In academic writing and English in particular, too many students fall through the cracks of the main system and lose confidence in their abilities. My job is to prevent that.

I therefore tailor my tutoring to the needs of each individual and discuss thoroughly with them at the start of the process what they want to get out of the sessions, and what difficulties they would like to overcome. All my exercises, games and homework are therefore specifically tailored to meet those needs and revitalise their interest in this subject.

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.

  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Jay.

I'm 24. Earlier this year I returned from a year teaching in Japan, I am originally from Bedford.

I am currently studying for a masters of research in 'Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine' at the University of Southampton.

I also hold an undergraduate degree in 'Human Physiology' from the University of Liverpool.

I have been invested in the scientific field since I was very young and I have found that my passion for the field comes across in my tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of tutoring was a 6-month period volunteering in a middle school in Bedford town (2014)

I then moved to Japan to teach English as a second language in Mimasaka city where I learnt a great deal about teaching in classes of 3 to 43 students.

Upon returning to England earlier this year, I was employed as a student support in a college in Bedford working with disadvantaged and disabled students both 1 on 1 and in small groups.

Before beginning University, I was a team leader with the National Citizenship Service where I helped a group of 15 students complete a dynamic course including everything from adventure activities to carrying out a fundraising project for charity.

I will soon begin volunteering with a mentoring/tutoring charity in Southampton for disadvantaged students.

I have a wide range of experiences working with students from different backgrounds inside and out of the education system. I have attained high qualifications in every subject I tutor and I believe I can both discuss and demonstrate the merits of hard work and education with students who require motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

After much experience in various areas of the education sector, I strongly believe that learning through discussion and questioning is the most effective way to understand the fundamentals of science and improve in this field. Developing a deep interest in science this way can greatly improve a student's confidence and understanding. I can also provide help in exam theory to ensure students won't lose marks through misunderstandings in what is required when answering modern day exam questions.

However, I understand that every student has their own needs and I will strive to tailor each session to the individual.
