Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher and current Head of Sociology in an FE college in Bristol. I am also currently finishing a part-time Masters in Psychology. I have a real passion for teaching the social sciences, a passion that is very much brought to classroom teaching and tutoring sessions on a daily basis.

I am an approachable yet focused and committed individual who truly enjoys sharing in the successes and development of others. I am a patient and caring person, and always seek to understand the learning needs of each individual in order to maximise both enjoyment and achievement.

Personal interests include triathlon and playing bass guitar.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years of experience in teaching Sociology and Psychology at both A Level and GCSE. My students consistently achieve results above their predicted grades. I also have experience teaching English as a Foreign Language, both in London and abroad, and would welcome the opportunity to expand my experience by working with students with additional educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is through ensuring a personalisation of the learning experience. Each student's needs and expectations from tutoring will naturally be different, and my job is to help identify, and cater to, those individual needs.

I endeavour to create a safe, supportive, but challenging learning environment, particularly focusing on the development of the learning skills needed to be successful both in life and in an exam environment.

Above all, I try to make tutoring sessions fun and enjoyable, scaffolding concepts and theories around the everyday experiences of young people today, in order to create those connections which guarantee both short- and long-term learning.

Personal Description:
I gained a PGCE in secondary science (physics specialism), after studying biomedical sciences. I then worked for two years teaching secondary science. I then became a private tutor while studying for an MA in sociolinguistics, and have continued tutoring while researching for a PhD in linguistics. This year I am studying for a graduate diploma in mathematics.

I am fascinated by all areas of science, mathematics and philosophy, from quantum mechanics, chaos and cosmology to sociobiology, cognitive science and psycholinguistics. I have a passion for acquiring knowledge and educating others, and have an ever-expanding range of strategies to suit individual needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience as a classroom teacher of Science with year 7 up to year 13 across the ability range, and have successfully tutored students privately in all three sciences at GCSE and A level, including improving grades for re-sits.

Tutoring Approach:

I make extensive use of past exam questions; the best way to do well in exams is to practise doing exams! This also allows realistic monitoring of performance as tutoring continues. I normally email exam questions for students to attempt before the tutoring session.

Students should have time to explore their interests in the subject by asking questions of their own. This is an important part of reflective learning and will help build and maintain enthusiasm.

I am happy to teach up to 3 students in a single session. Multiple bookings have a reduced fee per student due to the moderate reduction in individual attention.

Personal Description:
I am an OCR Chemistry A Level examiner (specification A) and a teacher in a sixth form college. I have a PhD in Biochemistry (Distinction) and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Distinction). Currently, I am only taking tutees studying the above mentioned specification, in order to provide highly specialised support. I offer tuition in person as well as online.

I have a PhD in Biochemistry (Distinction) and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Distinction). My hobbies are varied, but I would mention football and chess.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an A Level Chemistry classroom teacher for four years. The knowledge and skills gained from delivering this specification allows me to tailor lessons to my tutee's needs. My resources and worksheets range from introduction of topics to activities that challenge students to the A* grade. I am aware of typical problem areas where students struggle as well as common misconceptions, and I tackle them in ways that students feel comfortable with. In addition to A Level Chemistry, my classroom teaching experience also includes GCSE Chemistry and HND in Applied Chemistry Level 4 and 5 (equivalent to first and second year of a chemistry degree).

My experience as an A Level Chemistry examiner enables me to guide students on how to maximise their performance in exams. I work with my students through mark schemes, helping them to interpret them, and revise independently. I emphasise the need for accurate terminology in explanations and clear working out of calculations. Also, I help students understand the structure of standard exam questions as well as approaches to unfamiliar ones.

As a private tutor, my teaching approach varies depending on the needs of the tutee. I have experience in helping students starting A2 , resitting AS, students aiming for A*, and students with special needs.

Tutoring Approach:

In the first lesson I show original documentation for identity, proof of qualifications and DBS (previously known as CRB) to my students and their parents.

I offer the first lesson as a free no obligation lesson, which is only charged if students decide to continue to have further lessons with me. Therefore if after the first lesson you are not fully satisfied and decide not to come back, then you would not have to pay for it.

My approach to teaching students consists of the following steps:
-To establish a good atmosphere between the student and myself.
-To identify the student's current level and the difficulties they are experiencing in the topic we are going to start working on.
-To define the learning objectives for the session so that students have a clear idea of what they need to learn.
-To keep a continuous interaction with the student during the whole lesson though questioning and different activities in order to keep the student engaged whilst I can check if learning is taking place.
-To evaluate the session in terms of what the student has mastered and what needs further work.
-To set homework so that the student consolidates the acquisition of new concepts and skills.

Personal Description:
I am an Engineer from an Elite Indian University called Jadavpur University, currently working in a Telecom company at Coventry.
I have been an above average student scoring 98% in Maths and 97% in Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) in ICSE which is Indian Equivalent of GCSE.
I have scored 99% in Maths and 92% in Physics in ICSE which is the exam that Indian students take at 18 years of age.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from Year 6 till Year 12. I teach almost all science subjects till Year 10, and Physics till Year 12.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to teach student the basic principles first and then help them apply the principles to general stuff they see around. This helps the students to learn while they have fun and helps them to solve their text book problems with more confidence.
Once a chapter is finished, I take comprehension tests before moving to the next chapter.
I can offer lessons both online and I can also come over to the student's place. But I need the students to be disciplined, obedient and punctual.

Personal Description:
I am Spanish teacher living in London. I am really friendly, responsible and I will always love to learn as many languages as possible.

Teaching Experience:

I studied a degree on Translation and Interpreting so I have a good English and French. Two years ago, I ended my MA degree on Spanish language and culture which is mainly focused on teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

I have been an English assistant teacher in two Summer Camps for 4 to 6 year old children and also taught Spanish as a foreign language to Erasmus students coming to the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
I have also been personal tutor of many children between 5 and 15 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I really try to focus on a Communicative Method, I make sure grammar is learned but I do not focus on showing grammar as a separate subject which has to be learned by hard. I try to show real texts (news articles, stories, tales, etc) and once you are able to understand the vocabulary, you will notice how is grammar used in different contexts.
There is no sense of teaching a language without a real context, I try to avoid inventing sentences which have no meaning at all.

In case you wish to try different approaches, I have no inconvenience on adapting it to what you really want to do.

Personal Description:
I am a Japanese language teacher, a native speaker who studied for a bachelor degree in art in Portland, Oregon. I have lived in Tokyo and Osaka where I worked in the fashion industry and import/export business. I now live in England with my husband and two children.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching Japanese to both adults and children one-to-one and in small groups. A typical lesson will include practice of general or topic focused conversations, related grammar study, key vocabulary usage and pronunciation. As an award winning student of calligraphy, my speciality is teaching the Japanese writing system.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a patient and friendly manner allowing students to develop at their own pace while giving lots of encouragement to make sure students achieve their goals. I am flexible as to the content of lessons and will tailor-make courses to reflect students character and interests making the learning experience as enjoyable as possible.

Personal Description:
I am currently a second year student in London School of Economics and Political Science. I major in Mathematics and Statistics, with dedicated spirit to enlighten my tutees with my knowledge of mathematics. During my A-Levels ( CIE board) , I scored A* in both Mathematics and Further Mathematics and also A in Physics. 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:
My name's Danielle and I am 24 years old. I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Bsc Honors in Nutrition, Exercise & Health in July 2012. Since graduating I spent a year working at a Blackpool Primary School, assisting with teaching and after school club activities. I have lots of experience working with children age 4-11 years old. I spent 12 months between noc 2013-dec 2014 in Australia working for a private medical practice which was the second largest in Australia. I worked within the finance department and also shadowing the nutritionists as they treated their own clients. During my time there I gained valuable experience working within a clinical healthcare setting, also working with a variety of clients from different cultures and ethnicities. I have confidence in speaking to groups of people in presentation format, a skill i enhanced during my time in Australia. This i take into my approach to tutoring. During my time in Australia i tutored my younger family members throughout there final years at high school. I tutored Maths, Biology and English but have a vast knowledge of P.E and sports science in particular nutritional science.

Teaching Experience:

I worked for a year at a Blackpool Primary school where i enhanced dramatically my knowledge and skills working with young children. I gained one on one experience working with children aged 4-11 years old. I have the confidence and patience required in order to work on this basis with children of all educational levels. I have experience mentoring and tutoring young adults through their high school years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient and understanding young individual. I have a relaxed and gentle approach to teaching and mentoring as i feel you don't get very far adopting a strict approach, especially where young adults are concerned. In order to work as a team there has to be a level of respect no matter what the age difference, therefore i deem a soft friendly approach far more successful. I like to build a friendship with those i tutor/mentor as past experience has proven this the most effective method (regardless of age).

Personal Description:
Born in Edinburgh, I was raised in India and then Africa, before returning to the UK. Having lived in London and South East England since then, our family moved to the Scottish Highlands in 2012, primarily to raise our children in a less chaotic and more natural environment. We've had no regrets at all...and our various dogs and cats are similarly happy with the move!

I have always been passionate about English, from the weekly spelling tests and grammar exercises of primary school to the privilege of being taught at A Level by Tolkien's grandson. His vibrant, interactive approach shaped my ongoing learning and fired my imagination. After leaving Edinburgh University with a Masters in English Language and Literature, I went on to take a TEFL qualification and used this when travelling abroad in Turkey and throughout the Caribbean. I am delighted that I continue to work in the area of EAL with overseas students in British schools, and that technology has allowed me to work with individuals in their home countries, via Skype.

My love of English directed my career, working first at the Royal Shakespeare Company before becoming an independent theatre producer in London, and a theatre advertising executive on accounts such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' and Cameron Mackintosh's 'Les Miserables'.

In 2008, my partner and I began the home education of our two children at primary stage. It was both challenging and inspirational and the experiences and knowledge I gained during those years - not purely academic, but also the different ways and methods of learning, the different developmental stages of children, the different learning styles of children - continue to inform my present day tutoring.

While home educating, and with my love of theatre, I founded an educational theatre group, Active Arts, with Margo Gunn, a teacher and director at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. We worked with a wide age range of home educated and mainstream school children, providing workshops on various Shakespeare plays including 'Midsummer Night's Dream', 'The Tempest' and 'Romeo & Juliet'. Workshops were also designed specifically in support of GCSE/IGCSE work. As passionate advocates of Shakespeare, our approach was active and energetic, lifting Shakespeare off the page and introducing his plays, his language and his theatricality in an engaging and tangible manner. I was thrilled to be able to resurrect this work in the Highlands, initially at a local primary school, conducting 4 workshops for Primary 4-Primary 7, resulting in workshop presentations of 'The Tempest' and 'Macbeth'.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to home educating my two children and running Active Arts, my personal and professional lives led me into private tutoring and I have been a private tutor in English Language and Literature since 2009, working alongside children and young people from age 5 upwards, whether on general literacy issues, EAL or focusing specifically on exam work, from SATS, Nationals and GCSEs, through to A Levels, Highers and beyond. Tutees have been those in mainstream state schools, leading UK private schools and home education, following the English and Scottish curriculums, as well as IGCSEs with providers including Cambridge, OOL and Edexcel.

A number of my tutees have challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Tourette's and dyslexia, and the combination of experience, research and support courses have built my knowledge and understanding in these areas.

While I am registered with tutoring agencies, many of my tutees come via personal recommendation and I was delighted that tutees I had worked with in England chose to continue working with me via Skype after our move to Scotland.

Critically, I am PVG checked, and would be happy to provide evidence of this, together with references and qualification documentation.

Tutoring Approach:

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
My approach is not one of 'dip in and out' for an hour, or 'one size fits all', but of creating a relaxed, enjoyable, constructive atmosphere and building a relationship within which the young person's potential can be maximised, against a tailored, individual approach. While texts and challenges might be shared by various tutees, learning styles, atmospheres for learning, methods for learning, will always be different.
As importantly, my approach places great value on the parents, their involvement and their right and need for clear, ongoing and comprehensive communication. As such, I am often in regular contact with both my tutees and their parents, should they require it, outside of tutorials.

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited."
Plutarch

If you're looking for a desk-based tutor, one who does all the talking and expects your child to just sit and listen, I am not the right person for you.

If you're looking for someone to ignite a love of English, to build confidence, to be energetic, to make learning enjoyable, active, off the page, accessible, then, here I am!

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
For many young people with whom I work, English and everything to do with it - their texts, their homework, punctuation, close reading, writing an essay - is a minefield. Often, what holds them back is a mixture of low confidence, fear of getting it wrong, and simply not having grasped the 'map' of how to 'do it'.

One of my main motivations, is to make English accessible; to take away the fear factor, to provide clear and simple structures, to grasp some key exam techniques, to demystify the exam paper, to clarify what the heck the exam paper is testing them on; to remind tutees that they have, naturally, learned one of the most difficult languages in the world and are fully capable of expressing themselves on paper, under pressure and against time.

However whimsical it may sound, as with many things in life, self-belief and understanding are powerful tools for success.


MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
The demand for private tutoring is growing exponentially. As The Telegraph reported in 2012, "more than a quarter of parents use private tutoring to supplement their children's education", spending "£6bn a year in the UK." A double page spread in Femail, February 2015, states research that almost 1 in 4 children are now privately tutored, with pupils at private schools almost twice as likely to have private tutoring than those from state schools. Whatever explanation there is for this rise, cost to parents remains an obvious barrier to its provision.

I am, of course, a 'business', but I also firmly believe that access to tutoring should be made as wide as possible; education is a right and not a privilege. As such, while I have a standard rate for 1-1 tutoring, I am also very happy to discuss your requirements with you and to look at options available, such as small group tutoring where the cost per head can be significantly reduced.

Please do take the opportunity of discussing your requirements with me, rather than potentially losing the opportunity of providing tutorial support for your child.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced visual Artist and Photographer currently working and exhibiting within Liverpool. I have an art studio where I work as an professional artist and I am very involved within the Liverpool Art Scene. As a working artist I also have a lot of practical and helpful advice that I am willing to share with any aspiring artist!

Independently I have worked as an artist on a variety of projects, workshops and exhibitions. I have also worked within school and university art departments.

I have studied within the arts for six years. I have a First Class Fine Art Degree (Hons) and have also studied Art Foundation and Photography BETC.

I am a naturally friendly and approachable person. I have worked with people with a wide variety of artistic abilities and I understand that everyone learns differently. I am a very flexible tutor and I will always develop sessions that suite each student individually.

With younger students I am willing to travel to your home, with older students I can teach classes within my art studio.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have and I hope to hear from you soon!

Teaching Experience:

As an artist I think it is important to pass on the skills I have and help others to develop artistically.

I have previously have ran art workshops and worked in schools/universities. Through this I have taught art to a variety of age ranges and abilities. Within previous classes I have taught a large range of style and techniques.

I have previously set up and ran art workshops under the name 'Free Their Minds'. These workshops were developed to help children from deprived areas to have access to art classes. The classes aimed at building up the children's artistic skills, knowledge and confidence.

(References available on request)

Tutoring Approach:

All my lessons are tailor made to each individual student. The classes vary depending on ability and interests. Each lesson is designed to build the foundation skills and knowledge that all artists/photographers need.

I strongly believe that practical art and art history should be taught together as it creates a stronger understanding of the subject.
I make sure all lessons are a combination of art historical context and artistic skill building. I encourage students to build creative thinking, problem solving and traditional artistic skills.

Personal Description:
I have graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a BSc Honours in Mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

Maths and Science at all age groups from Primary School up until A Levels.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring varies between age groups.
With younger children, I prefer the use of examples, starting with easier questions and building up to more difficult questions.
I feel that this provides a strong foundation and the confidence to expand their knowledge of the subject.
With older students, I believe that they should dictate the method of teaching and I adapt to their style.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced mother-tongue tutor of English as a Second Language. I have worked in the UK and abroad and am an enthusiastic and motivated professional who loves her job.

I am passionate about lifelong learning and learn something new every year for fun. I am a coffee-drinking, book-reading, cake-loving, walker in the rain. I do yoga every day in the garden to the alarm of the cat next door. I enjoy travel, diverse cultures and meeting new people.

I think that accurate communication is vital. We must understand each other in our global village.

I believe that my role in life is to help people to develop their English skills and communicate without misunderstanding.

And to experience as many different books and cakes as possible in one lifetime…!

Teaching Experience:

I am qualified, experienced and professional English Language tutor (ESOL). I have taught individuals; small classes; large groups; all levels from Beginner to Advanced; exam preparation; CV building; job applications; interview skills; English for specific purposes, eg legal, medical or engineering, I have worked in multi-cultural classes with many different languages. I also taught in Sicily where all students shared a common language. I have high exam pass rates and excellent student retention rates.

Tutoring Approach:

Stress free! I believe that you must be relaxed to learn a language successfully. My focus is always on the needs of the individual student at that moment. I encourage, motivate and build confidence so that students can go easily and quickly into the real world and use their English skills without hesitation. I hold students accountable so that there is a real sense of progress from lesson one. I establish rapport easily and am reliable with a good sense of humour.

Personal Description:
Hello and welcome to my profile! It's great to have you here!

OK, so I'll tell you a little about myself… My name is Aman. I am a qualified EFL/ESL teacher and I have been working abroad for the last 16 years in different countries from Thailand to Dubai.

For the last 5 years I was working with the British Council as an academic manager in Qatar. Here I was managing educational programmes and a team of teachers, which I loved! I provided training for teachers and worked on curriculum development.

When I am not working, I love movies, music, socialising and meeting new people and learning about new cultures! I am also a big coffee drinker.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching English as a foreign language.

I have taught students of all levels from beginner to advanced and have worked with students from all over the world helping them to improve and develop their general English language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking by designing lessons to bring out their full potential.

In addition to teaching general English, my ELT specialism for my Cambridge DELTA was Exam Preparation Classes. Therefore, I have solid experience and knowledge of helping learners prepare for the IELTS exam and get the band they want by focusing on the strategies needed in each module. Moreover, I can also help you prepare for the Cambridge First (FCE) exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, the heading states 'Approach to Tutoring', I look at it as 'Our Approach to Learning'.

Together, we will look at YOUR English language goals, and the best way to achieve them, as every learner has different needs.

Lessons are learner-centred, that means I do not teach in a 'lecture' style, but provide opportunities for you to produce and practise language and then look at ways to further develop and improve that language. It is important for me that you feel comfortable and relaxed in these sessions. Lessons should be enjoyable and engaging for you (and me!).

There is error correction throughout lessons, but this is where you will self-correct with my guidance making you more aware of which areas need more focus.

Depending on your level, I use a range of materials from coursebooks, internet, newspapers, magazines to podcasts and videos.

I will give you regular homework, which will help to reinforce what you have learnt and give you more independence in using English. My aim is for you to feel more confident in any situation where you have to use English.

Feel free to contact me and let's talk about what you need. You can ask me any questions and I'll be happy to explain.

There is no obligation and don't worry, I don't bite!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aman
