Personal Description:
Although I now have a PGCE in mathematics I have been lucky enough to get the chance to apply my skills in maths and physics whilst working as an engineer in the automotive and white goods industries. It gave me the opportunity to travel abroad and to get involved with companies such as Dyson, Jaguar, Austin Martin and then even allowed me to watch rockets being built in Russia.
I trained engineers and factory workers in the use of mathematical and physics based subjects. Some of those I taught had jobs which involved predominantly manual skills and so they were a little rusty when applying mathematical techniques. This makes me appreciate the nervousness some adults have when presented with a subject they may not have touched since leaving school.
After leaving the engineering world I had a brief spell working as a trainer in the insurance arena and then finally ended up teaching mathematics in secondary schools.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a manufacturing engineer for 8 years and then I taught engineers and factory workers for 10 years in the use of techniques involving mathematics and physics. After leaving the engineering world I trained adults to use a mainframe software program and then I went on to become a secondary school mathematics teacher. Finally I started tutoring from home working with various types of pupils. Some pupils have special needs, whilst others are working towards an A grade in their A levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to know why the tutee wishes to study. It may be to improve their confidence or to pass an exam. This will then shape the nature of the tutoring sessions. My focus is to provide people with the knowledge that is most useful to them and their aspirations.

Subjects
  • Physics
  • 11+ (secondary) (30 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
*NOW BOOKING FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2016-17*

Thank you for looking at my profile.

I am a full time, professional tutor, specialising in English, maths and general study skills. I achieve excellent results and students look forward to my sessions. As detailed below, I have a wealth of experience and success working with students with Special Educational Needs, and other difficulties which have prevented them from accessing the curriculum fully.

I have a very calm, patient and friendly approach to tuition. I will explain and revisit as many times as needed and use a variety of methods to make tricky topics memorable. I use a range of resources and approaches, tailored to student preferences and different learning styles.


I am qualified teacher with a BEd teaching degree and a Masters degree in education, plus other courses attended to further my professional development.

MEd: I have a Masters Degree in Education, completed in 2013.
The modules I studied are as follows:
`Educational enquiry` (research in education) (2013)
`Investigating language in action`(supporting learners of English) (2012)
`Difficulties in literacy development` (specifically dyslexia) (2008)

British Dyslexia Association and Unicorn Maths- `Dyscalculia Plus` (2012)

BEd Primary with Qualified Teacher Status (subject specialism English) (2003)

BTEC National Diploma in Childhood Studies (Learning and development 0-8 years) (1999)

9 GCSE`s all A-C:
Child Development, English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, French, History, Religious Education, Science. (1997)

Teaching Experience:

My specialist subjects are English, maths and Special Educational Needs.

I have held a number of roles:

*private tutor
*university Specialist Tutor for dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism
*primary school class teacher for nursery to Y2 (inner city school; many children had behavioural/emotional issues and did not have English as their first language)
*cover teacher for nursery to Y6
*subject co-ordinator for Personal, Social and Health Education
*subject co-ordinator for music



As well as teaching, I have worked in a variety of settings as a nursery nurse and nanny. I have been able to build excellent relationships with parents and children and am still in touch with families that I have worked with over the years.



References: available on request

Tutoring Approach:

I support students with many different needs and situations. These include:

*dyslexia
*dyspraxia
*dyscalculia (difficulty with maths)
*self esteem or confidence issues
*children who struggle at school due to emotional or behavioural issues
*children who have missed school for various reasons
*children who are home educated
*adults who want to `catch up` or improve their English and maths
*college and university students who need support with essay writing, proofreading and exam revision techniques


Over the past 4 years in my role as a tutor, my students have made excellent progress in terms of confidence, catching up with age-related expectations and achieving the desired level or above in 11+ or Year Six SATs. I have a loyal student base and much of my work now comes from existing student recommendations.


Recent successes:

Children who have not responded to tuition in the past have really engaged with the subject and made good progress.

Children who were struggling with Year 6 SATs have achieved at least one level higher than predicted.

Those tutored for 11+ exams have passed and gained entry to their chosen school (Two to Wolverhampton Grammar, one to King Edward`s Birmingham).

Feedback from a Masters level student on completion of her dissertation:

I would like to express my deepest thanks to my support tutor Zoe whose support has been most invaluable, without which I could not have possibly completed this project, and I am forever grateful for her help.

Personal Description:
A highly effective teacher; experienced, well organised, motivated, enthusiastic, with good sense of humour.

I establish rapport with my students. In my long career in teaching, I have learned how to make the most complex concepts in science 'digestible'. My motto is: 'Excellence in Education'.

I am a member of Pi Lambda Theta (International Honour Society for Educators).

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified Teacher / Lecturer, and have taught Biology and Chemistry for over thirty years in Secondary, and Further/Higher Education in the US, the EU, and the UK. I have taught the AQA, Edexcel, OCR, and the International Baccalaureate specifications.

In addition to teaching students, I have trained teachers, as well.

Tutoring Approach:

While my Bachelor's Degree is in Biology and Chemistry, my Master's Degree is in Education with emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction, which means I have trained in designing and delivering effective lesson plans, as well as a complete curriculum. I design my instruction taking into account the student's learning style. The 'one size fits all' type of teaching is responsible for the failure of many students. Every student can learn and can do well, provided the teaching style accommodates the student's learning style, and there are no 'gaps' in what is prerequisite knowledge for taking a certain course.

Knowledge builds on pre-existing knowledge. I make certain that my students really understand and appreciate that. I diagnose any 'gaps' in content knowledge that my students may have, and I 'fill' them, providing a solid foundation for my students to build on.

Study skills, which figure prominently in my teaching, and exam technique, along with a well-rounded, in-depth knowledge of content, provide the key to success.

At the end of the course, my students not only do they have what they need to tackle the Biology or Chemistry Exam, but also a wealth of learning skills which they can apply to other subjects as well, and which they will find essential in all their future academic studies.

Educational technology supplements my instruction. The content in every session is presented on PowerPoint with quality images. I clarify every point and make certain my student has 'grasped' the present concept before I proceed with the next. Where appropriate, the PPT presentation is followed by a brief video which makes the content 'come alive'. My PowerPoint presentations, as well as my notes on PDF or Word files are available for my students after the lesson.

I finish the lesson practicing exam - style questions. It goes without saying that regular revision is important, and I provide my students with lots of past exam papers.

Subjects
  • Psychology
  • A-Level or Highers (45 p.h.)
  • Chemistry
  • GCSE or Standards (45 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (50 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (55 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a senior epidemiologist and Research Lead within a healthcare organisation and I have studied biology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, parasitology and epidemiology at both under-graduate and post-graduate level. I also have a Master's in Public Health. I am interested primarily in human disease and work on vaccine-preventable diseases, infection and associated Human Papillomavirus-driven cancers. I have taught and lectured to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year undergraduates and to Master's students. I am fairly strict with regards to attention to detail and I believe that it is important to write accurately and in a concise but salient fashion. I am able to read, write and speak fluent French. I love my 2-year old daughter, mountaineering, ultra-marathons and Kettlebells.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a STEM ambassador for West of Scotland for the last 5 years, teaching biology and basic molecular biology, microbiology and immunology to primary and secondary school children.

Honorary lecturing duties at Glasgow University on molecular biology/microbiology/immunology in context of public health.

Module Leader for Outbreak Management and Epidemiology modules for M.Sc. in Infection Control, University of Highlands & Islands

External examiner for MSc in Infection Control, University of Essex (Kaplan).

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed - it is crucial to see how the student thinks and take it from there. Everybody is different and in order to understand where the difficulties may lie, one must take the time to appraise how the student is thinking and which areas are causing the most problems. Using a number of examples, it can often be revealing to the student when one thinks of a scenario in a different way. However, it is imperative that the student appreciates that the attainment of knowledge and the ability to reason and apply that knowledge comes from drive, enthusiasm and structured revision. After tutoring, I normally arrange for students to meet with my contacts in the field of biology and public health so that they may gain some extra practical experience and/or some work experience before their next career step. I have also tutored students who are at various points on the autism spectrum.

Personal Description:
I have completed PhD in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Manchester. I offer assistance to degree students in assignments and dissertations. I also offer home tuitions for GCSE and A level students. Currently I am teaching at the University of Manchester to engineering students.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught as Lecturer at under-grad level in the department of mechanical engineering, UET Lahore for almost three years. In January 2007, I joined the department, as Lab Engineer and then promoted to the position of Lecturer after completing Master's degree in 2009. The university and the department claim top position in national ranking and also enjoy the honour of being the biggest and oldest ones in the country. My career of about two years here was full of struggle and effort for excellence in teaching and research.
In addition to that I have have given tuitions as Home Tutor to GCSE and O/A level individuals and small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I always have the highest expectations of pupils and always have had, even when it was fashionable for learning to be more "child centred"; this is an approach I have found to pay rich dividends in terms of a pupil's academic and personal development. I have always managed to maintain friendly and relaxed environment tailored exactly to what the students requires. Above all I can offer general education and career advice when it matters the most and have observed that my students usually make fast progress towards their goals and good outputs.

Personal Description:
My name's Laetitia (Tish), currently a second year undergraduate at Cambridge University in the faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (studying Russian and Arabic). I'm living in London until October 2013, and am keen to pass on whatever knowledge I can, while making the process as enjoyable as possible!

Teaching Experience:

Personal Description:
Having focused my early life studying and tutoring Physics and Mathematics, I graduated from Kings College London, one of the Russell Group of universities with a 2.1. I took up an opportunity to train and work in Finance and Accounting, gaining experience working for organisations including the National Westminster Bank and a Fortune 500 company. Having spent over ten years successfully working in this area, I felt a change in direction and wanted to reengage in my original interest of teaching. As well as gaining work privately, I have been working as a tutor for several charities.

Teaching Experience:

Over 3 years experience tutoring Maths, Physics and Science. Duties have included assisting with homework, using workbooks to support the classroom led learning, working through past papers and running revision classes focusing on model answers and exam technique. I have been brought into schools to work with pupils and raise their attainment. Reliable and enthusiastic with a supportive approach.

Tutoring Approach:

While I do cover the methods and applications to worded problems, asking questions is at the heart of my tutoring. This is important because:
- A pupil can learn how to approach problems they are not familiar with.
- It enables the pupil to demonstrate their level of understanding.
- It helps the pupil to develop a deeper understanding of the material.

Subjects
  • Combined Science
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (45 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (45 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (45 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Paulina and I recently graduated with a first class honours in English literature, currently studying MA Literature.
If you are looking for an A-level English Literature tutor, then you have found the right person to help you with your exams! I can certainly make you understand texts or poetry better via going through historical context, analysis, different interpretation (including theory) and prepare you for your exams.

I'm an avid reader and I enjoyed my studies of literature since Sixth Form. I intend to become a lecturer in the near future, hence I became a tutor!

DISCLAIMER:

I can provide tutoring in English Literature GCSE, A-Level and University level.
I can only provide tutoring in History GCSE and A-Level, regarding British history.
I also teach Polish.

Teaching Experience:

I possess over a year of experience in tutoring A-level English Literature. All of my tutees passed their exams for their desired grades, and they all achieved at least a grade higher than their expected grade. Although I do not give a guarantee you will pass with an A*, I promise to help you improve and provide you with skills to help you succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to stay positive and to start by setting goals my tutee feels capable of achieving. From experience, I find it extremely helpful to start way in advance before the madness of exams, or as soon as a deadline for the essay has been set. Being calm and being kind to oneself are of vital importance when studying. My top tip to all students: start months before the exams, because it will give you time to organise notes, read through stuff couple of times, as well as to go through question papers and write sample essays.

I have years of practice so I know your feelings when it comes to starting revision, that it all seems to be a massive mess, and you may think you don't know where to start. I can help you sort it out by starting a few months before exams in order to keep stress at bay. Colour coding, flash cards or making Powerpoints will not be as effective if you make these a week before an exam than if you were to produce them two months before. If you will trust me, I will try my best at helping you devise strategies for revision and to have stronger writing skills.

Remember- I can go with you through the material, and help you understand your subject but I cannot write your coursework for you.

Personal Description:
I completed my PhD in History of Art at University College London (UCL) in 2013. I have published my research in a number of academic journals and edited book collections, and I am a practicing artist, currently based in Hulme, Manchester. I am also currently a Junior Research Fellow at University College London's Institute of Advanced Studies.

I'm based in London Monday-Wednesday and can meet students within 10 miles of UCL's Bloomsbury campus (WC1E 6BT) on these days. From Thursday-Sunday I'm based in Hulme, Manchester and can travel up to 20 miles from the city centre, or meet students at my central Manchester art studio. I'm available for Skype appointments at any time.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully trained secondary school teacher, specialising in Art & Design and Photography at KS3, KS4 & KS5. I have 9 years teaching experience, including working as a specialist Learning Support Teacher, and in Special Needs schools catering for children and young adults with a range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple disabilities.

I have particular expertise in studio practice (art and design), digital and darkroom photography (theory, history and practice), literacy, social and vocational skills, as well as History of Art, Anthropology and History of Medicine at undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at undergraduate level, having taught gallery-based first year History of Art courses, for University College London's History of Art Department, and on the History of Art degree programme at the University of Manchester.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a one-to-one, flexible approach to learning and teaching, which first establishes the needs and goals of the student, and then sets out clearly structured strategies for achieving these goals. These may be results-focused when preparing for exams, or aimed at developing a broader understanding of a subject area, depending upon the student's own priorities. I am happy to work with any course materials the student may provide, and I am familiar with all current GCSE and A Level syllabuses. I am able to guide both GCSE and A Level students through their studies, offering consistent, dedicated 1-2-1 tuition for the full term of the course. I can also provide practical tuition for students who are preparing their art portfolios for University submission, and can offer assistance with UCAS forms and references for students who undertake long-term A Level tuition with me.

Tutoring may take place at the student's home, or at my art studio in central Manchester, where I can provide a range of art materials and resources by prior arrangement, for more intensive practical art sessions. Please note that I can travel within 20 miles of central Manchester based on the fee structure quoted below, travelling further will incur a small additional fuel fee.

I have had recent successes with my private students, one of whom attended one-to-one sessions at my Manchester studio for 8 weeks and improved her predicted GCSE Art result of a B by two grades, achieving an A* in her final art exam. My most recent undergraduate student also attained a First overall in her History of Art degree, achieving a high score of 78 on her dissertation project, with intensive tutorial support conducted via Skype.

*Please note that due to the time-intensive nature of undergraduate level tutoring, I am only able to take on a maximum of three undergraduate tutees at any given time. Please see below for my current availability for tutoring at this level.*

I am currently tutoring ONE undergraduate student.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

GCSE Level:

A Level:

University Undergraduate Level:

"I wanted a tutor to give me help and advice on my undergraduate history of art dissertation. I needed reassurance that what I was writing was okay and some one to proof read and give me their opinion on my arguments. Gemma was brilliant, she gave me the confidence that I needed to keep going with my dissertation by reassuring me that I was on the right track. She discussed my ideas with me in detail, proof read all of my work and suggested and sourced articles that I might want to have a look at. I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a First in History of Art and Media and I know that I owe Gemma a huge thank you for the support she gave me on the way to achieving this."

Personal Description:
Learning and subsequently teaching English has been my biggest passion since my first English lesson in high school. I have since spent 13 years teaching both full time and part time. I opened my own Language School in Turkey in 2008 and this gave me the opportunity to teach Turkish as well as English. I have prepared students for exams such as TOEFL and IELTS apart from teaching General English and Business English. English is my second language and this gives me an advantage over native speakers as I have learned the language much the same way as my students do. This means I can anticipate and empathise with any difficulties my students come across.

Teaching Experience:

Since my graduation from English Literature Department and getting my English teaching certificate from Istanbul University in 2003, I have been teaching English to young students aged from 7 to 13 and adults of all ages.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer bespoke English lessons, preparing the lesson according to the students' needs.

I can teach on Skype as well as face to face lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, with a Master's degree in Research Psychology (cum laude), a research Doctorate from the University of Oxford, and an ongoing second doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy. I also have a special Chartership with the British Psychological Society in the Division of Academics, Researchers and Teachers of Psychology. During my working life, I have written or contributed to a number of peer reviewed publications in the the fields of critical theory, research methods, psychology and development studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught psychology, social theory, philosophy and research methods at a number of universities, including Cambridge and Oxford. This formal teaching ranged from undergraduate to masters level, and even included some thesis supervision. In addition, I have experience of training outside of the academic context, including the military, government, and corporate contexts.

Tutoring Approach:

I see learning as more than just memorising knowledge, or getting through an exam. As a result, I prefer to work with people who want to gain a deeper understanding of issues, and who find meaning in locating knowledge in a broader framework of wellbeing.
