Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate with MSci degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Queen Mary, university of London. I am a professional yet friendly and easy going individual who is very passionate about inspiring young minds. I believe I am equipped with all the right tools that are required to identify the needs of the students and to help them achieving their goals beyond expectations.

My prices per hour are negotiable!

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring at different tuition centres to KS2, KS3, GCSE & AS-Level as well as A-Level students for Maths & Sciences for more than 3 years.

I am also actively engaged in private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

Very friendly, Easy to understand.

I always aim to provide a comfortable environment to my students so that they can freely express their views about the areas of a subject they struggle in. I also judge how ripe their understanding is towards a given subject by using carefully customised assessments. This enables me to positively interact with the students and construct a productive teaching/learning plan.

I come prepared to teach for every tutoring session. In order to make things interesting and understandable, I relate the topics and their applications to the practical world and pick up the examples from the real life events. I also ask frequent questions to keep my students engaged and active towards learning and urge them to use their knowledge to reach the answers.

Personal Description:
Fully qualified teacher with 25 years experience of teaching FRENCH, GERMAN & SPANISH to GCSE, AS LEVEL and A LEVEL in schools and colleges. I have also prepared many groups for Cambridge exams in ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE.
I currently teach MODERN LANGUAGES (to A Level) and RELIGIOUS STUDIES (to A Level) in a Sixth Form College.
I teach ADULT LEARNERS too, at all levels, both for GENERAL LANGUAGE and BUSINESS LANGUAGE.
I have prepared hundreds of youngsters over the years for GCSEs and AS/A LEVELS in these subjects and am very familiar with the demands of these courses and exams.

Teaching Experience:

I teach in a Birmingham Sixth Form College where I work as Head of French
I have taught pupils/students in UK schools and Colleges over the last 25 years, specialising particularly in MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and AS/A Levels.
My teaching experience has been mainly in UK schools and colleges but has also included 5 years living and teaching in France, Spain and Germany.
I worked at Stafford College of FE for 9 years where I was head of MODERN LANGUAGES
I have been an Examiner for MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and A Level with a major Examination Board.

Tutoring Approach:

Professional and friendly approach, looking for real, measurable progress and increased confidence for the learner
Most young learners need a tutor who understands the requirements of the GCSE / AS / A Level exams and can train students in tasks that will prepare them for these
I find that students often need their confidence boosting and many discover that they know more than they realised.
Adults also learn fast and are often surprised to find they are more able than they thought

Personal Description:
"Thank you very much for the great work you did with my daughter Sophie. She progressed from a 'C' grade to an 'A' grade in the space of 6 months and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends." - Billy, Bangor

As an experienced private tutor with a 100% pass rate, I offer highly effective, tailored lessons to a wide-range of students with various ability, learning types, and academic stages.

I have a passion for learning and fully appreciate all the forms that this can take. My approach is tailored to each student's own learning style and my methods aim both to support and to engage the student to continue learning in their own way.

Teaching Experience:

"The learning exercises were always set around my interest areas, making tuition both fun and effective. Following my sessions with Andrew, I have developed a more concise way of communicating. My writing now has more flow, which helps me say what I need to say." - Neil , Newtownabbey

Professional certified Life Coach and successful university graduate (1st class hons) with additional masters research degree. Taught at Secondary school and now several successful years tutoring especially English and Maths for most ages and stages, and passionate about nurturing the potential of each student whom I have the privilege to tutor.

Also a regular public speaker and workshop leader in areas including stress-awareness and communication skills, to self-care and personal development.

Tutoring Approach:

"Andrew was very professional in his approach to tutoring. My daughter gained confidence in her ability to understand her subject and to recall information using association techniques which proved very useful in her examinations."
Grainne, Randalstown

Combining motivational coaching techniques, I offer a fully engaging and personalised education. During the first session I will always undertake a comprehensive learning needs assessment, the results of which I make available to the parent. While encouraging the student to adopt high yet achievable targets for their own eduction, I am also sensitive to the level of each student and what he or she is ready to adopt.

This coaching-based approach I take has proven highly successful for my students, as my many positive references show. I approach each student and the sessions with an open-minded attitude of what I need to learn in order to be of support. I have many areas of interest outside of education, and pride myself in my ability to engage my students at their level and within their current areas of interest. My reward is seeing students succeed in their studies as well as developing their own personal skills and confidence.

AREAS COVERED / WHAT TO EXPECT

I help primary, secondary, university/college and mature students with reading, spelling, comprehension and every area of Maths up to GCSE. Alongside the specific subjects I tutor in, I can incorporate motivational coaching on exam and essay skills. This will ensure maximum value for your investment of time, effort and money

For English or Maths the first lesson will consist of a complimentary educational assessment (usually 30 minutes) to help identify key areas for improvement . All results shared with the parent/guardian. Based on this initial assessment, a 100% individual programme of learning is tailored for your child.

Upon request I am also able to provide emotional literacy around life skills such as: motivation, communication, self belief and concentration.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for tutoring Philip this year; he adapted well with you as his new tutor and enjoyed your approach to teaching.
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a tutor. I found him to be polite, courteous, reliable, and accommodating."
- Doreen, Ballyclare

Personal Description:
A trilingual professional and qualified teacher with 2 MA's degrees in languages and long tutoring and instructing experience. I will help you to understand your work better and expand your knowledge in the subject. My language lessons are carefully planned and tailored especially for individual students according to their level and needs. My students practice the main 4 language skills - reading, speaking, listening and writing. My main objective is to develop skills in order to improve fluency and confidence in dealing with native colleagues and clients.

Teaching Experience:

My skills are based on solid academic experience. I have got around 6 years of tutoring experience and worked with adults, children and professionals.
- Worked alongside leading academics in the field of methodology as an assistant
- Conducted research and analysis
- Organised conferences and assisted in consecutive and liaison interpreting
- Assisted in translation of articles and legislations eg. Polish Labour Code
- Worked internationally as Russian/English and Polish tutor in Poland, UK and Holland therefore I am culturally sensitive and adaptable
- 2 years' experience in working with students and professionals in China (Fujian International Business & Economic College) as TEFL teacher & Foreign Language Expert

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one of my best qualities as a teacher is my ability to inspire confidence in my students so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves regardless their level of ability. Central to my philosophy of teaching is to create stimulating yet non-competitive environment in the classroom. I always feel it is my responsibility to inspire my students to want to achieve their maximum potential. I have strong confidence that a learner can utilise his or her ability to the fullest if he or she has the utmost willingness to do so. As for me, I was fortunate to be introduced to my second languages at a very young age. I discovered that there were several factors that contributed to the level of effectiveness of learning the second language back then.
Having a strong intrinsic motivation to learn the language is crucial, you always need to find ways to develop your language vocabulary, practice correct pronunciation, listening speaking, reading and writing skills. You have to be resourceful -find ways to improve yourself. Spend some time reading foreign newspapers during weekends and make foreign language dictionary your new life partner!

First introductory lesson is FREE!

I have completed a PGCE (post graduate certificate of education) in further education and lectured for three and a half years in anatomy and physiology. I've always loved tutoring and helping my students so I've set up this site to aid all those struggling in biology!

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor lessons to student's needs, making sure revision and exam techniques match knowledge and understanding. Work is carried out by both tutor and student to ensure a rise in grades. Seeing my students enjoy their work as their grades increase is one of the most rewarding parts to tuition and I bring this enthusiasm to all my lessons.

Personal Description:
My name is Chris. With a good academic background, and now with excellent feedback, my approach is to not only impart knowledge, but also attempt to generate a passion for a subject that will remain long after any examination success. Educated at King's Collage School, Wimbledon and a subsequent degree course in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at King's College, London, I joined the BBC as a television recording engineer in 1976. I became a successful editor with the BBC and continue to enjoy the same role now on a freelance basis.
I am a good communicator, and seem to have the knack of explaining sometimes difficult concepts with clear and concise explanations. I have kept in touch with my core subjects (maths, physics and science) throughout my life and retain a keen interest in all of them. I'm not just a book-based dry academic but someone who knows how to fire enthusiasm for learning that will last long after any examination paper. My work has never been Mon-Fri 9-5, so I am available during the working day both in term time and school holidays.

Teaching Experience:

I have now been tutoring Maths for over two years which has generated good feedback and positive results from parents and students alike.
I think that is all that counts.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to impart my enthusiasm for the subject to my students. This is so much easier on a one to one basis compared with the classroom. A tutor will often cause the 'penny to drop', not by simply repeating a classroom lesson, but by offering a different explanation of a problem. Working in close contact with the syllabus, I quickly identify areas of weakness in the understanding of a subject, and repair that damage as quickly as possible. This is essential, especially in maths, as new concepts can rely so heavily on previous knowledge, which, if absent, will make comprehension of new material even more difficult. This is presumably why you are looking for a tutor in the first place. Homework, mock exam questions are essential, not only as feedback for me to know how successful any lesson has been, but also for you as a parent to see if any improvement has been achieved. A return for your investment if you like. Get in touch.

Personal Description:
In July 2013, I graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London, undertaking a BMus (Hons) Music degree (2.1) with a principle study in singing (1st). I took two gap years before going to university to gain experience in the music and drama fields. I have studied modules at university ranging from Bach to Beethoven and Sibelius to Weill.

Teaching Experience:

In my two gap years I was a gap student at Bedales Schools for a term and then was invited back to cover a member of music staff. Responsibilities included teaching 8-13 year old mixed pupils classroom music as well as supervising music practices. I also tutored pupils through grade 5 theory achieving merit and distinction grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very laid-back attitude to teaching and will teach you in similar ways that I have been taught. I understand totally that some pupils need several ways of explaining things so bring a variety of teaching methods to my lessons. I make teaching interesting and engaging and always try to relate the subject to the pupil. I have been very fortunate to learn under some inspirational teachers and would love to be able to carry on their enthusiasm to other students.

Personal Description:
A graduate of Cambridge and Durham I have specialised in ancient languages and literature. While based in Durham I am currently completing a PhD in Old Norse literature at the Birkbeck College, University of London.

Teaching Experience:

As well as current private tutoring in English lit, Lang and Classics at all levels I am an undergraduate tutor at Durham University. I have strong experience helping students reach their full potential and gain the grades they need or higher. I have taught both online and in person, both at GCSE-adult. I was selected as an open day lecturer for Newnham college Cambridge in 2008 and I have attended several courses on lecturing in secondary and higher education both at Birkbeck and Oxford.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to inspire my students with the same passion and interest I feel for language and literature, texts and contexts. I tailor my approach to the need of each student, but in general teach not by lecturing but by posing questions which lead the student to a greater understanding of text and context. I aim to show students how to enjoy the subject as well as teach them the means and methods to make their studying and writing easier. I have a great deal of experience helping students with exam and essay technique.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!
I have lived in London for the past 10 years. I previously lived and studied in Milan, Italy where I obtained my university degree. For a short while I also lived in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I did some of my studies. I have tutored students in both Milan and London, face-to-face as well as online, and have helped them improve in the subject matters they struggled with.
I get on well with people of all ages and backgrounds. I take the time to find the right studying approach that works for each tutee to ensure they pick up the material as effectively as possible. My goal in tutoring is to help tutees understand and learn the material in the easiest way so they can improve their knowledge without feeling it as a burden.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously taught English as a foreign language, Italian and French to children aged 9-13, teenagers and adults. My tutees markedly improve their knowledge and manage to fill the gaps and prepare for exams or achieve the desired grade. In my experience it takes tutees 1-2 months to notice a difference and 3-6 months to feel more confident with the language, though of course this depends on commitment levels and the difficulty experienced by the person.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing for me is to find out where specifically the tutee has difficulties or gaps with the subject. I also take into consideration how a student normally studies to work out what approach works best for them.
I am a strong believer in using a calm approach in tutoring as it is most effective to help set in the knowledge and achieve best results.

Personal Description:
Enthusiastic with a restless intelligence, thirsty for knowledge, always keen to discover more, I am continually fascinated by the interplay between culture and society. I have expert knowledge in English and American Literature, the history of cinema, and the development of western philosophy. I resigned from my post as head of department at a large comprehensive school so that I would have more time to write my book comparing the films of Preminger and Hitchcock. Freed from the administrative demands of a school, I have even more energy and creativity to devote to teaching, and will have a powerfully positive impact on whoever I tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have over thirty years' experience in a wide variety of educational contexts: at universities in Britain and abroad, in comprehensive schools, FE colleges, language schools and professional training. I have worked as a A Level examiner and moderator for over ten years, so understand exactly what students need to do to impress markers, and can advise on how to avoid mediocrity. I have been tutoring online for two years, and find that the level of concentration in a Skype session is usually higher than in person: the start is crisper, the learning more focused.

Tutoring Approach:

Fun, exciting, inspiring. I love the stimulating variety of one-to-one tuition. Over the years, I have adapted my plans, materials and methods to meet the specific needs, aims and expectations of an extremely wide variety of learners in terms of ability, personality and specialisation. At one end of the scale, I trained Swedish officers in media relations ahead of their deployment with the UN in Bosna, and spent eight weeks one-to-one with the head of personnel of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, improving his presentation skills. At the other end of the scale, I had notable success tutoring a teenager with emotional and behavioural difficulties who had been permanently excluded from school for violence, and was in local authority care. Working with him individually for three hours a day, concentrating on English, Maths and History, I had a very positive and potentially transformative impact. At every point in scale, I treat individuals with respect and dedication, determined to help them achieve their potential.

Personal Description:
I'm a 24 Canadian teacher, now in my second year teaching in London. In addition to teaching, I take part in screenwriting, filmmaking, and online blogging.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently in my second year teaching in England. I have full grasp of the new English GCSE curriculum for both Language and Literature. I teach Years 7-11, to students of all abilities (including EAL and Gifted & Talented students). I am also a GCSE Media Studied teacher, with additional knowledge in Film Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I bring to every tutoring session the same levels of passion and enthusiasm that I exhibit on a daily basis in my classroom. I believe in hands-on learning, with understanding and appreciation of the material studied taking prominence to worrying about a grade or a level. I strongly believe that any student can excel, no matter their background or language, and that with passion and handwork, the desired grade is more than possible.

Personal Description:
Personally, the skills I possess, are passion, organisation, empathy and at some time enjoying with my tutees the most of their successes.

My background is in Physics with abilities to communicate in an enjoyable way with pupils. I believe Physics and Maths are the key to understand the Universe and most what is happening around the world related to several aspects in Sciences.

One of my hobbies is managing and coaching a local football team's children under 12. This is giving me the opportunity to understand how important is an effective communication, passionate and fun while teaching the future minds.

Teaching Experience:

I am tutoring in Maths,Statistics and Physics to pupils from secondary school up to University. Those opportunities are being fantastic for me and the pupils are having much success.

Whilst working as professional Geoscientist, I coached less experienced geoscientists. Listening and planning successfully according to their needs gave them the right target achievements.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple.I ask each tutee their needs and then I use my experience and abilities for solving the critical needs.

  • 11+ (secondary) (40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have been studying a Product Desin course for the last 2 years, I am now transferring to do a BA in Secondary School Mathematics, and after 2 years of that I will be a qualified and working maths teacher.
I am currently taking a gap year to prepare for my studies, this has given me the oppertunity to get hands on with my teaching, and do as much maths tutoring as possible.
Mathematics has always been a passion of mine and as my ability has progressed, I've taken the oppertunity to teach Common Entrance, GCSE and A level students to prepare them for their upcoming exams. Over my years of providing maths tuition I have gained plenty of knowledge, experience, and fulfillment in what I do.
I am happy to provide tuition over skype and I will charge less for that.
Face to face will be a lot more progressive, I'm happy to travel but depending on the distance I may charge extra to cover the cost of fuel.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching became a passion of mine from a young age, I was involved with CCF (cadet force) for five years and teaching the younger cadets became an import role for me.
Since then I have been doing teaching observation in different schools and working with children aged 5 to 11 on holiday camps.
I have been providing one to one, or group tuition since the age of 17. At first I worked as an assistant for group tuition sessions during holiday periods. Now my role in these group sessions is to give 1 or 2 students extra attention, or cover for the leading tutor if he is not there. This year I have been able to carry out plenty of 1 to 1 tuition, as an indepent tutor. Every one of my students so far have achieved the grades they where hoping for, or better. Some students where predicted as low as an E at school, and achieved A grades in there exams after doing private tuition with me. From this, I truly believe that every student deseveres as much 1 to 1 attention that they can get.

Tutoring Approach:

As an experienced tutor, I have gained a range of personal teaching methods. My first aim is to understand the level and ability of my student, and figure out exactly where and what there learning difficulties are. Every student learns in there own way, especially for a subject like mathematics and therefore it is essential for me to find out how the student is progressing and to cater to there needs.
Throughout my sessions I challange my students with questions that they are likley to see in there upcoming exam. I encourage them to identify the problem infront of them, and then use there own method to overcome it. This may be a method I have taught them, but it must be a method that works for them.
If my students have little or no understanding of a certain topic, I have plenty of pre prepared lessons, and I will be very enthussiastic to teach them something new.
I often set homework based on the topics covered in the lesson. Usually 30 mins max of practice for them to do later that evening to refresh there memory on what they have learnt.
