Personal Description:
Hi! My name's Ed. I read Classics at Cambridge before going on to train at the Bristol Old Vic. I'm now working as a professional actor in London.

I tutor in English, and all areas of Latin and Ancient Greek. If it's of interest, I particularly specialized in my finals papers on Homer, Virgil, Horace, and the evolution of tragedy.

Though I read Classics, a large chunk of my finals actually ended up being part of the English course - specifically tracing the origins of tragedy through to the present day. As an actor, too, I'm continually having to familiarize myself with new areas of literature, be it poetry, drama, or prose, with the advantage, I hope, of an extremely practical approach.

Teaching Experience:

Overall, I've found it best to keep a balance between tutoring English and Classics. I like to be teaching a range of things.

When moving to Bristol I was lucky enough to be offered a part-time teaching post with the Classics department at Clifton College. Over the two years I primarily taught A level language work in Greek and Latin, as well as coaching their prospective candidates for Oxford and Cambridge.

I've also done a lot of free-lancing in all sorts of areas for both English and Classics, tutoring Oxbridge applicants as well as students at both school and university level.

The work I've done with my tutees has varied widely. In Latin and Greek, I've assisted some specifically in translating set texts both at school and university level (I'm now very familiar with the OCR Latin syllabus); I've introduced others, who wished to explore beyond their prescribed syllabus, to new areas of literature; and with others I've worked on more wide-ranging ways to deepen literary analysis or approach translation.

I should probably add that my language work with school students has almost exclusively involved tackling the inadequacies of the confounded Cambridge Latin Course! This seems to be taught in virtually every school but seemingly never elects to teach grammar, which I find utterly bizarre. If you're a victim of this clueless course I'm more than happy to help!

In terms of English tuition, I've been fortunate enough to have a similarly broad range of tutees, at GCSE, A level, and university standard, though a high proportion have been Oxbridge candidates.

Some references from previous tutees below:

Naomi, A Level Latin and Greek (2013)

Ed,

Sorry it's so early but I just thought I'd let you know I got my Cambridge grades! Thank you so much for everything once again!

Neirin, Latin GCSE (2013)

Hello Ed. We are so delighted with Neirin's results, absolutely fabulous. And who would have thought - an A star in Latin! Thank you for all your effort and encouragement. He couldn't have done it without you. Enjoy the rest of the summer and good luck with the writing.

Katie, Oxbridge Ancient Greek (2013)

Ed's work with Katie has been completely outstanding. I think we were asking for something quite demanding, a combination of literature and language, with inspiration to boot, and he delivered it superbly. Katie was super-enthused by his approach. I think they both thoroughly enjoyed the classes (indeed from the sound of it I would have enjoyed them myself!) Ed has a combination of intellect, passion and (as far as I can judge) a real feel for the texts!

Zac, Scholarship Latin (2014)

Ed has been tutoring our 11 year old for Latin scholarship papers. In 5 sessions he has taken him to a new level and has totally inspired him! We can't recommend him highly enough!...

Hey Ed!

You probably don't remember me, but you tutored me for English IGCSE a year ago! We did Journey's End

Anyway I just found out my result, and i got A* for both English Language and Literature, and whats more is I got 100% for both of them! So that was really amazing! I was so surprised!

Thank you so much for teaching me!

Hiya Ed,

Thanks for the email ... got an A* in Philosophy and A's in Latin and English.

Thank you very much for all your help, couldn't have got the A without your tutoring.

Hope all goes well for you at theatre school and you're enjoying the summer.

Best wishes,

Sophie.


You're also welcome to get in touch with the Head of Classics at Clifton College, Mr Huntington, who employed me at the school between 2009 and 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it's impossible to pin down a sure-fire method of effective tutoring for any given person. People are different, and different methods work with different people.

That said, I am a firm believer that you cannot simply speak at someone. Learning has to be an active process, and I think there has to be involvement from both sides for things to sink in. In this light, I do try to make things enjoyable, and also to limit shortcuts; I'm of the view that it's far better to invest the time in getting firmly to grips with a subject, be it an instance of grammar or literary concept. In the long run that is a shortcut in itself.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am 30 years old from the Old Trafford/ Stretford area of Manchester, I graduated in Law from Lancaster university in 2008, I now work in Conveyancing/Property law having previously worked in the Banking/financial field. I am an individual who is quite fond of reading, debating and discovering new things. I would say I am quite lively, not too difficult to get on with, very ambitious but also with an equal dash of a patience for I am a patient individual. Although I am admittedly not fantastic at sports I do play badminton and football from time to time I can play a range of sports but those tend to be the main two. I am a massive fan of education and self development. The colossal impact both areas can have upon our lives is incalculable, as such I tend to be never too far away from reading a book or learning something new to further myself.

Teaching Experience:

I have mainly gained a lot of my early teaching experience through tutoring younger siblings and assisting the junior year students either at college or University with areas which they either required either extra help in or further knowledge. I have further developed this over the last four years and I am confident that the contribution which I have made to those who I have helped has been substantial in helping them to progress onwards to the next stage and beyond. As such I would hope to extend this towards any student who desires to take me on board and to progress until they are ready for the task at hand.

As I have progressed over the years, teaching various and numerous tutees, my own personal & teaching experience has grown exponentially year on year. As such I believe I can approach any teaching scenario and offer the required angle to ensure success as a result of previous experience yet I still take each student on a case by case/ individual basis rather than a blanket approach.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin my approach with an informal but analytical conversation with the student, parent or both in order to assess strengths and areas where we can develop a plan of action or just to establish face to face what it is we will be doing in the time we have. I will aim to take each stage step by step until both you and I are satisfied that we are confident in understanding and explaining coherently the relevant information. I will be professional but understanding as patience dictates, most importantly any work set during the session will be wholly relevant, comprehensible and creative in order to match your needs.

I do incorporate digital media, an interactive projector for lessons and presentations or a whiteboard depending on the subject if a visual element is required in teaching. Presentations can be sent via email at any time as well.


*For any LPC students I can also tutor and instruct in Solicitors accounts too.

Personal Description:
I believe that I posses valuable qualities such as creativity, enthusiasm, discipline and overall approachability that will enable me to become an effective tutor.

I am approachable and enjoy working one to one with pupils. Pupils find my open manner engaging; particularly when they are finding English difficult.

I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world and engage with people of varying ages and cultures. This has fuelled my passion to work with people.

Teaching Experience:

Since returning home from New Zealand I immediately signed up with Select Education and I was working in Secondary, Primary and SEN schools in South Yorkshire.Working part time allowed me to spend time tutoring students, I took students requiring additional help for Standards and Highers and helped them through their exams, with great success. I also took younger students requiring additional support.

I completed my PGDE in 2011 and I have been teaching ever since. I enjoy every aspect of my job and I teach all levels from BGE, N3, N4, N5 and Higher. I also mark for SQA at National 5 and Higher for both folio and exams too.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my teaching experience I have often worked in one and one situations, and have proven I can work well to encourage students and progress with their learning.

I have worked in many different schools and situations with children and students and I have the ability to adapt to the individual needs of a student to improve their knowledge in their chosen subject(s).

An experienced and friendly female tutor with many years experience of teaching mathematics at all levels and one to one tutoring with excellent results. As an exam marker I have a good idea of what is expected in final exams and have a keen ability of giving confidence and encouraging my students to achieve to the best of their ability.

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

Teaching Experience:

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

I am confident in my mathematical ability and my ability to teach.

Teaching Experience:

I have assisted in my brothers' maths exams in the areas they struggled in (GCSE and Common Entrance).
I am also a very experienced ski and snowboard instructor so have lots of teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I would have to do all tutoring on my computer using Skype as I am currently at University.
I would be able to help with their homework difficulties and coaching towards upcoming exams.

Personal Description:
Hi there,

I'm Alan, I'm an Engineering manager with Siemens, I'm married and live in a lovely part of the Hampshire countryside.

Apart from work, I spend a lot of time cycling and walking the nearby parks and hills.

Teaching Experience:

I've been tutoring for 5 years now, and I am trained as a trainer through work, so I've taught both adults and students. I used to run a training team as part of my last job, and understand a lot about different teaching and learning styles.

Since tutoring I've mostly taught 16 and upwards, physics and maths, and occasionally the odd other question!

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to make the teaching as simple as possible, and let the student work it out themselves with me providing guidance where need be. Physics, and maths in particular, can be daunting - many people just want to get a good grade and move on, which I understand completely, I'm not going to make you love the subjects but help you get to where you want to be.

Personal Description:
Please, feel free to contact me to see my works - I will send you the link via e-mail.

Who am I? I am a creative female human being, who is about to graduate in BSc (Hons) Architecture. I have been:&#65279;
breathing for 23 years;
creating art for more than 12 years.

I am a darling of fortune. I do what I love and love what I do. Moreover, in my case, it is the most precise definition of my future career. I am in a deep, incurable love with Rain, Poetry, Black Coffee, Philosophy, Books, Music and any manifestations of elegant, thoughtful and inspiring Design & Art in all areas of life: from the greatest "Bilbao-effect-Architecture" from Powers-that-be at all times (starting with Ancient innovations to Modern Deconstructionism) to the 50's rockabilly dresses in my wardrobe.

Teaching Experience:

Mostly, I privately tutored children every summer between 2005-2009, helped primary school teacher to prepare art classes. I am currently looking forward to expand age category of my tutees.
I am now starting tutoring again after a break (since 2009), therefore, references will be available soon.

Tutoring Approach:

Before I start tutoring I always prefer to arrange a meeting to have a chat about what your requirements/preferences/needs are first. Once this is discussed, I take couple of days to arrange a brief plan for our lessons, which will be sent to you by e-mail. That way we adjust it together and I have time to prepare helpful information/books/software etc. for you. Once it is confirmed we arrange the date for the first lesson.

Teaching Experience:

Creating a bespoke route for each individual, develops understanding that motivate students, resulting in great success that have given many great results to my students.
I insist of developing good mathematical habits that increase the ability to evaluate problems mentally. This increases effort, which improves determination because now students are confident to solve maths problems.

At the same period I also attended Euclid's Mathematics Competition and scored within the top 15 percentile. Besides, I have also developed many ways of understanding mathematics through readings and attending optional lectures , and I can't wait to share my excitement to bring my tutee along the journey in search of more and more "Eureka!" moments.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 4 years since I was in my high school. During my A-Levels , I also joined the Tutor-Tutee program which I was assigned to a few tutees and I was responsible for their progress during the entire year. My recent experience in London was about 4 months ago right before the A-Levels exam, I taught a British-born Arabian within 2 months and managed to bring his grade up substantially ( from E/D to B) and earned him a place in University of Exeter.

Tutoring Approach:

Different from most teaching styles portrayed in class, I use different ways of explaining from either easy or intermediate levels to relate to specific chapters in the text book. While text books being the main course material, rather than asking my tutee to blindly remember all the formulas, I will teach them to derive all of them and understand the meaning implied within.
I strongly do not encourage remembering the questions from past year papers, instead , I will teach the very basic- the essence of specific chapters to understand and to master and this will arm my tutee with the ability to answer all type of questions during the exam. Also available for students with intermediate level seeking for advanced or intensive type of tutoring.

Personal Description:
I am a recently qualified (July 2011) English teacher with four years of experience, teaching in secondary schools in Lincolnshire. I graduated from Pembroke College, Cambridge in 2010 and, during my time there, gained experience teaching English as a second language and mentoring young people at home with special educational needs.
In my spare time I enjoy painting and exhibiting / selling my art and performing as a vocalist at various open mic nights in Lincolnshire as well as reading copious amounts of fantastic and terrible literature! I also love cooking for friends and family.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher with Bishop Grosseteste University College, Lincoln in 2011. My training schools included Christ Hospital, Banovallum and De Aston. I taught English and Media at Sir William Robertson School for three years and then spent a year at North Kesteven teaching English and Communication & Culture with added responsibility in developing Key Stage 3 to support the requirements of the new national curriculum and GCSEs. I have also privately tutored and mentored special needs students under the 'son-rise' programme and taught English as a foreign language to adults and students in India and Romania. I have been teaching privately since 2015.

Tutoring Approach:

After four years of teaching in schools in Lincolnshire, I had a revelation! My favourite moments in the classroom have always been those quiet conversations with individual students during and after classes that often lead to major learning breakthroughs. And that's when I realised that, with only a small change, I could dedicate my career to being in this role. As such, my approach is very much student lead and I can plan sessions according to your preferred learning style, stage and areas of difficulty.

Personal Description:
As a professional writer with a range of credits in tv and radio (Eastenders, Holby City, The Bill), I gained experience of working with schools and colleges to develop the literacy skills of learners of all ages. Perhaps uniquely, I am also a fully-qualified Maths teacher equipped with the subject knowledge to teach to A-level. Aside from Maths and English, I occasionally teach guitar and ukelele and play in a couple of local bands. Though there is no escaping hard work, I think learning should be fun. As both a parent and a teacher, I believe you get the best out people (young people included!) if you listen, and try to see the world from their point of view.

Teaching Experience:

I have recent experience of teaching in both state and independent schools, but appreciate not everyone thrives in these environments.

Tutoring Approach:

Without personalised support from a sympathetic expert who can focus on and understand their needs, many young learners find themselves lost or feeling they are not reaching their full potential. As a tutor, I aim to give that support, in a relaxed and fun environment. I aim to identify and overcome any fears that may be blocking progress. Starting from individual interests, enthusiasms and motivations, whilst building on existing skills of which they may not be aware, I aim to develop the confidence and feelings of success that ultimately lead to achievement.

Personal Description:
I left school with one A* grade, six A grades and four B's. A's being in English, Biology and Geography. I was also a prefect in school chosen for my level of drive.

During sixth form I was a student mentor where I helped GCSE students with their upcoming exams and acted as a person of support and welfare. I studied law achieving an A*, sociology achieving an A and psychology achieving a B grade.

I'm currently a third year psychology student at the University of Birmingham. During my time at university I have gained an in depth background knowledge in psychology including child and educational psychology. I hope to start a career in child psychology because I love interacting with children. During University I have learnt many academic skills such as adaptability, patience, resilience and organisation.

I'm a friendly and cheerful person and I've always had a high drive to succeed.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience in tutoring at GCSE level as well as for the 11+ in which my students have always highly achieved.
I have a younger sister who I often help with her schoolwork, so I have gained experience through them on the best methods of learning.
I'm always working with children through my part time job at the sea life centre.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about helping children to succeed, often children are more than capable of achieving highly they just need a push and a confidence boost and this is what I aim to do. I am very patient with learners and determined to help them overcome the barriers that can inhibit learning.

My aim as a tutor is to build a good relationship to ensure that the child is comfortable as I find this the most rewarding for success.

Most importantly I think that tutoring should be enjoyable for children as this helps to keep focus.
My Tutoring sessions will often include practising questions and word games. I like to set a small amount of homework each week to ensure the children are gaining an understanding.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated Tutor with a proven track record of responsibility and commitment to meet targets and objectives. I take pride in the work I am involved with and have a passion for learning and teaching using different techniques.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored pupils in key stages 1 to key stage 4 English, Maths up to key stage 3, Science up to GCSE, and finally A-level Biology and Chemistry. Arrange appropriate teaching materials specific to each student and their preference of teaching style. Identified the needs of learners and when necessary adapted course content and delivery style to meet these needs. Homework was assigned to reinforce the current lesson/lessons being taught. Moreover, a safe and confidential relationship is developed and maintained with tutees and parents. Advice and support is also provided to tutees in matters related to academic work and students' personal development.

Tutoring Approach:

I work with tutees to find appropriate pathways to resolve difficulties and constantly assess students' abilities through formal and informal assessments, providing suggestions for improvement and assigning grades. Encourage individual student progress and monitor disciplinary problems. Additionally a greater focus is assigned to any areas of the course, which is found to be difficult for students. Parental involvement is used at all times and at the end of each lesson his/her progress is discussed with parents.

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Lorna and I am a PGCE Primary and CELTA qualified English (ESL) teacher, living in Bristol, England.

Being a primary school teacher, I believe that I fully understand what your child needs to know and how to get them there. Whether you are looking to boost your child`s attainment in order to meet age related expectations, or to stretch a high attaining individual, or to guide your child through the upcoming SATs period, I am positive that I can help!

I am currently working as a Supply Teacher in Primary schools and have lots of experience teaching the current curriculum in KS1 and KS2. I have also taught students through their SAT`s (Year 6 and 2), and have a very good track record of seeing big improvements quickly. I specialise in English and maths, but am very able and happy to help with any topic within the curriculum too.


By nature, I consider myself to be very approachable and friendly. I have a real passion for working with children and I take pride in developing a trusting and productive working relationship with both student and parents/carers. I am truly excited to work with new clients and look forward to meeting you soon!

I hope to get to know you and help in your learning journey!

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE Primary 5-11 at Bath Spa University and have since been working as a Supply teacher in Primary schools across Bristol. I have lots of experience in teaching all age groups from EYFS through to KS2, including SATs preparation and intervention groups to help students reach age related expectations (ARE).


Prior to teaching in the UK, I taught English in Europe and Hong Kong, which I absolutely loved. I have a lot of experience in preparing engaging private lessons, tailor made to the needs of the student. I have experience teaching Business English in Belgium on a 1:1 basis, and also group and private lessons for IELTS preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer that lessons should be interactive rather than passive, and I take a lot of pride in designing quality programmes for each of my students, which allows them to make steady, rapid progression.

I am friendly, approachable and very reliable, and have a true passion for working with children.
