Personal Description:
I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic tutor. I come from an academic background (Molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics) rather than teaching and as such, have a thorough and extensive knowledge of the subjects I tutor in. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with others and I'm also good at explaining some of the more complex elements of biology. I am also registered as a STEM ambassador and visit local schools to share my passion for Biology and Science.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, swimming, playing tennis, walking and watching Hull City!

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored >60 students, mainly in biology at A-level/Highers, but also separate sciences and general science at GCSE level. My students have achieved excellent results; with most improving by at least two grades. Recent successes include an AS student moving from grade E up to a A and an A2 student moving up from an unclassified (U) grade up to a B. I am more than happy to take on students of all abilities. I have also taught at University level (2nd year biochemistry) and have mentored undergraduate and postgraduate students. I have some experience tutoring students with mild specific learning difficulties (ADHD, Asperger's).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student as all have different needs and learning styles. For GCSE/A-level tuition, I usually concentrate on exam practice, with in-depth topic study for the more problematic subjects. I also use multimedia aids to help students visualise biological/chemical processes where appropriate and I have created powerpoint files covering almost all AS and A2 Biology topics.

Personal Description:
I am patient person. I have a gentle manner to get to know your child and to get the best learning experience for him/her.
While I am gentle in manner I will not take unruly behaviour.

Teaching Experience:

I am teacher who has taken early retirement. I have 15 years experience of teaching at infant level and further education level.
I taught reception classes for two years followed by year one for two years in Leicester.
I have also taught students with learning difficulties independant living skills for 9 years.
I have been working in schools in and around the Pontypridd untill I left 18 months ago to live in Glasgow.
Whilst in Glasgow I taught one 5 year old boy for a period of about 8 weeks over the smmer holiday. I also taught two 10 year old boys who needed their confidence boosting.
I am now back in Pontypridd and available to tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring should be fun for both the child and the tutor. I would look to use games as much as possible to enrich the time with your child. Initially I would need to talk to you as the parent to see what problems you and possibly the class teacher believe your child has, and how best they can be helped. I would need to review the situation as time went on to see what I have gathered.

Personal Description:
I can help with the new GCSE/GCE exams and Brighton College and Westminster School scholarship coaching are recent successes. I am also a former Advanced Skills Teacher with many years of experience working in a comprehensive school with all abilities from GCSE to A levels / Oxbridge entrance. My key priority is to provide a safe learning setting where the learner and my starting point is always to be where the learner is rather than a fixed programme in advance.

Enhanced DBS / CRB status February 2014

Clearly you will need to know if this will be the right arrangement for you, so the first lesson is free with no commitment to continue.

If your child has the potential, I can enable him or her to achieve the highest grades: knowing what the exam requires you to do will make a difference

Teaching Experience:

I have coached a pupil who gained a scholarship for Brighton College and another who was awarded the Queen's Scholarship to enter Westminster School, London. In both cases exams tested a whole range of traditional skills set at a relatively demanding level for this age group. Future candidates would be welcome to contact me.

Prior to this, I have taught pupils from 11 years upwards to Advanced Level pupils heading for Oxbridge. I have worked as an examiner for an exam board, set and marked papers at GCSE and taught adults in evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

Tuition offered via Skype which offers greater flexibility of timings, lengths of lesson etc as well benefits for teaching using Google docs which record lesson progress, better use of resources etc.

Tuition also offered in student's home within Brighton if required or a mix of the above

On-line tasks can be set in between lessons to practise skills learnt.

Lively approach including games where appropriate.

Teaching linked to the exam board specification you are working towards including specific skills at GCSE / A level.

Grammar taught relevant to your needs: to include the new course requirements when published.

Feedback after each session to parents/ guardian or carer if requested to include likely grade potential at GCSE / A level or IB

A / AS / IB level students will work through short accessible texts to build up topic vocabulary but also support class tuition in your college or school.

Common Entrance Level candidates or specific entry exams for schools will receive very focused teaching to prepare for the exam.

Adult tuition for business or leisure.

I would be pleased to work with students in groups of 2 or 3 for a reduced fee per person.

Fees are a little higher than perhaps for other tutors, but you will be receiving a premium service with many more benefits than a session's tuition: every 10th lesson is free!

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be a very laid back and creative individual. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and consider photography to be not only a great art form but also a skill that so many people should be able to understand and enjoy! I have now been a full time photographer for over 10 years. My work has for the last 8 years been based in the U.K with one of the largest most prestigious studio portrait companies in the U.K, H.K,and America.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last 5 years I have tutored and mentored many new photographers of differing ages and skill sets. Some with no hands on experience at all, some with a firm grasp of the technical aspects of the camera who wanted to further themselves through lighting and post production digital techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take a friendly and enthusiastic approach to the questions and challenges that face new photographers young and old alike. Simplifying and finding real world associations on how the camera,lens and light work together with a creative mind.

Personal Description:
A warm welcome to students and parents,

Teaching has always been my passion and now I am very delighted that I can use my teaching ability to help children achieve their full potential on an everyday basis.

I have been tutoring children over the last four years from Nursery to GCSE level within the Coventry area. I have also worked in a number of schools as a full time qualified teacher. I always receive positive feedback from clients with my most memorable being "Miss J always goes that extra mile to help bridge the gaps in one's academic learning journey". Having moved from secondary school, straight to completing my A-levels and then onto university, I have developed a wide range of knowledge in helping children tackle their weaknesses, embrace their strengths and take pride in their learning achievements.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring children is my full time profession, which has enabled me through time to develop carefully chosen activities to maximise every child's learning potential. After graduating with a teaching degree from university, I decided to go straight into teaching in schools. I really enjoyed this and developed many skills within the teaching world. After sometime, I decided I wanted to help children on a 1:1 basis as this method was so effective for those children that would not show their potential in school, or for those who were shy… or where teachers would not be able to pay attention to specific children because of the thirty in the class. Now, I teach children at diverse levels and I really enjoy it.

Within this four year period, I have taught and excelled over 200 students at different times. This has been really rewarding for me, as I am a natural teacher at heart and I really do take my work seriously.

Consequently, I have also had 3 years of university experience in the world of teaching, covering all aspects of the national curriculum, assessments and independent learning strategies to challenge children.

Every term, I give children mock term assessments as integral preparation to help consolidate their learning. This enables me to know how much they have learnt from my sessions and what areas they still need to improve on. This method is also the key for exam success.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very systematic, however at the same time I adapt to the specific child's needs. Every child I have tutored so far, I have built a bond with. I hold a fair, firm and fun attitude towards learning.

The key services I offer on a regular basis within the tuition fee: block spelling tests, reading books every week depending on ability, phonics practice for the younger children to prepare for their year 1 phonics tests and finally, previous exam practice materials in all core subjects for KS1, KS2, KS3 and GCSE.

In addition, children are rewarded for their hard work through different motivational techniques and prizes through a tally chart system.

Every session entails 2-3 pieces of homework and I also give full written or verbal feedback to parents depending on their requirements.

I usually travel to clients residence or sometimes they come to my residence.

My aim is to not only teach children but to also help them enjoy their learning - by creating a safe, fun and secure learning environment.

Thank you for taking out the time to read my profile.

Kind regards,

Jay

Personal Description:
I am a University of Liverpool graduate. Having decided to teach I trained at the University of Birmingham completing a Mathematics Subject Knowledge Enhancement year followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Education. I enjoy my job and love seeing pupils realise and achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

Since qualifying university I have since had two years experience teaching at an Outstanding school in Merseyside, teaching a range of 11-18 year olds. My pupils have achieved excellent results, especially those targeting A and A* grades.

Tutoring Approach:

The approach I take towards tutoring is a focus on defining on the needs of the tutee. Few students are afforded the opportunity to have one on one time with a classroom teacher in their specialist subject and if specific areas are identified and worked on the benefits are huge.

Personal Description:
I am a postgraduate student from Beijing and currently studying MA in Theatre in the University of York. It has been an exciting journey leaning English since I was a child and I believe I am able to help people who share the same passion about Mandarin now.

Teaching Experience:

I have always paid extra attention to how my tutors were teaching me, both in English and Mandarin; and I have applied the same method to explain course materials to my friends who needed help. I am confident that with my level of English and Mandarin, I can communicate with the students without language barrier, and provide the help needed for them to speak Mandarin fluently.

Tutoring Approach:

I will ask what the students want

Personal Description:
I'm previously a senior manager in a large water company. I've recently taken an opportunity to leave the company and I'm enjoying working with children through the local Kumon franchise. I'm looking to expand my tutoring to 121 coaching

Teaching Experience:

My recent teaching experience is with Kumon. I've also tutored my son through an A* GCSE in 2016.

Prior to that, 25 years ago I was a lecturer at Swindon College in mathematics and from 86-88 I tutored A-level maths to fund my way through University.

Tutoring Approach:

Patience and repetition. It is practice of doing it right that leads to always doing it right and failure to practice and not correcting errors early that leads to errors.

I explain the approach to take (and why), demonstrate the approach and then ask the student to implement, first with support but eventually alone.

Personal Description:
I am a calm and collected person and this is reflected in my approach towards tutoring. I aim to build rapport and tailor my service to the specific needs of the tutee. I primarily focus on breaking down the curriculum and assessing through mock scenarios and written assessments built upon topics studied as well as experiences the tutee has had.

As the needs of each student are different, i structure my tutoring in a way which provides realistic expectations of both exam and coursework environments and where possible, i supplement this with the use of past examination material to truly replicate the educational environment the tutee is likely to be in.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience has largely been developed by assisting students in the years below me as well as my younger siblings and my cousins with their education. I have developed this further in a professional setting where i have trained colleagues on new and unfamiliar processes. My strengths lie in breaking down complex information and making it readily accessible to tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by engaging the tutee/parent/both in conversation to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, once this has been established, i draw up a comprehensive plan of action to address those needs and where possible, further enhance their existing skillsets. I am to review material with the tutee on a regular basis and ensure they have absorbed the information and more importantly, that they are able to apply it.

Where the tutee requires support via other means such as audio/visual representations of the material - i will endeavour to match this in a suitable manner.

Personal Description:
I studied at the University of Ulster at Coleraine and hold an honours degree in Molecular Bioscience.

I worked in the Science industry for 4 years but I have found a new passion in tutoring as I feel it draws more on my abilities and I can give more back to students by helping them to do their best and to enthuse them.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working at Victoria College Belfast, grammar school for girls.

My initial experience in tutoring was through completing two Tutoring in Schools programmes - offering voluntary tuition to pupils most in need.

In addition I have over two years of experience as a private tutor with students obtaining fantastic results. I am experienced in tutoring Maths, Chemistry and Physics at GCSE and AS/A2 Level as well as transfer tests.

It is wonderful to see students become more and more confident and enthusiastic in areas that they previously struggled with.


(4/5) (GCSE Maths) "I think that you have helped me a lot in terms of understanding topics that I previously would not have known and helping explain them to me in a great amount of detail."

From Veronika (5/5): (Secondary Physics) Highly recommended. He is very good at teaching.

From Alison (5/5): (GCSE Chemistry) Ching is an excellent tutor and really helped my daughter succeed in her GCSE.

Reply from Ching Lun: Thanks Alison, I'm very pleased that I helped out

From Beena (5/5): (GCSE Maths)

From Margaret (5/5): (Primary English) A real gentleman and such a calm helpful teacher. If only all teachers were as caring and nice!

Tutoring Approach:

I am very patient and considerate and I believe that effective tutoring involves listening well and being observant in order to give student-specific support to allow them to achieve the best results.

I ensure that my students can answer past paper questions well and with confidence. To achieve this, I help them to understand the topics at a fundamental level and understand the relevance that they have in general. Doing so makes topics easier to understand because it inspires interest in them.

Something that sets me apart from other tutors is that I genuinely put my students' success over my own gains - their results and enthusiasm for the subject is always top priority which is why my rates are much more reasonable.

I like to make good use of a variety of resources such as a vast collection of past papers, innovative iPad apps and worksheets / revision notes created specifically for each student for a very personal touch

Learning that one of my students achieved a great result is a fantastic feeling every single time and it inspires me to continue working hard as a tutor.

Personal Description:
Hi I'm Gareth! I am motivated and love my job! I teach Primary School children everyday and with that comes challenges and the opportunity to get to know children and their interests. I think it's important for children to get to know me and my interests as I like to create a relaxed and approachable ethos. I play rugby and love watching local and national clubs playing. I am very competitive and enjoy a good game of articulate! I have had the privilege to work with children in Brazil and learned how children learn from different teaching styles especially those with English as an additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching key stage 2 since September 2017. I graduated from Northumbria University in June 2016. Prior to undertaking my PGCE in primary education was working as teaching assistant in a special needs school and a British College primary school in Brazil.
I have tutored children for their AQE exams in the past year and each child has achieved their personal targets. I have seen children grown in confidence and their understanding of the subject deepen which is why I am passionate about my job.

Tutoring Approach:

With encouragement and motivated lessons, every child can achieve their full potential. My aim is to find the areas of misunderstanding in various subject areas and to build a firm foundation of knowledge and understanding. I ensure that the child can access the learning by providing a range of strategies and learning techniques to overcome any challenges.
