Personal Description:
I am a highly experienced Maths tutor, geared toward ensuring you get the best exam grades possible in your field. I will increase your understanding of maths, and my explanations are simple and straightforward. Alongside tutoring, I will guide you through exam techniques, and common pitfalls.

Teaching Experience:

6 years private tutor. 4 years private tutor in Maths 1, Maths 2, and Mechanics of Materials of University's courses.
2 years experiences in GCSE and A Level Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching strategy usually involves engaging the student in critical thinking early on, as I believe this is the key to understanding, and I will never "tell" a student what he should do, or why this is like that, but to direct his thinking so that he/she understands why this is the way it is, and why should he/she act that way. I do not believe in memorisation being the main way of teaching in some countries, as this usually does not prepare people for university and life in general, specially in science and maths. Of course, there's always a degree of memorisation in every subject, but I try to keep it to a minimum. This also depends on every student, and I ultimately asses my strategy individually for each student.

Personal Description:
After having completed a qualification in advanced Spanish in Salamanca in Spain, I returned to the UK to complete a degree in Psychology. Following university I went to drama school, and college to learn to teach English as a foreign language. I have taught Spanish and English privately since graduating, and love to see my students improving in their language. I am trained in phonetics, so can help improve in Spanish pronunciation, and with British English or American pronunciation. I am flexible and willing to travel to central and around London, or or have students at home in the Crystal Palace area.

Teaching Experience:

Before completing the CELTA course I taught Spanish privately and in groups at the university of Sheffield. While at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School I taught private Spanish, and also drama/speech preparation to those wishing to get into drama school, then of course during my CELTA course I was constantly teaching English to classes and privately. I have taught private lessons in Spanish and English since then, and am doing so currently. As you can imagine, from living in Spain, a degree in Psychology, a professional acting qualification and teacher training, I've been around the study of people and how they work for a while now. These experiences have made me an empathic, patient and responsive teacher. Learning styles are really important for a teacher and a learner - if we can figure those out, you can become amazing and proficient in whatever you want. Let's have fun, get some work done, and finish proud of what you've achieved.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a modern approach to language teaching and want to make it as fun and interesting as possible. The mixture between a Psychology degree, an acting degree, and a CELTA course mean my approach to teaching is empathic and eclectic. I may use traditional board methods, or role-playing techniques to make sure my students' learning styles are explored and made use of. I would be perfect for any native Spanish speaker as I can relate language points to make comprehension of English clear, and for any English speaker who wants to learn Spanish. As stated above, my knowledge of the International Phonetic Alphabet and its application makes me a good choice for anyone additionally wanting to improve their English, or Spanish pronunciation. I have lived in Spain, so I understand what it's like to live in a foreign country where you don't know the language. I have training in phonetics from both drama school and the CELTA course, so am a good choice for pronunciation practice in an addiction to language improvement.

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old Primary school teacher with a range of experience working with children and young people. In particular, I have worked with children who experience barriers to learning and I enjoy aiding them to experience success in education. I am a fun but hard-working and reliable individual with a passion for working with children.

Teaching Experience:

Before embarking on teacher training, I worked as a teaching assistant in both primary and post-primary settings. I provided support to children with English as an additional language and with special educational needs in both settings. I was responsible for planning, setting targets and assessment of the children I worked with. I also supervised a Homework Club, providing assistance to post-primary children in various subjects including children with special education needs and those who are gifted and talented. During this 2 year period, I tutored a number of children in the evenings on a one to one basis ranging in age from Primary 2 to Primary 7, and I developed very positive relationships with the families I worked with.

I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and during university placements, often took on a teaching role working with children one to one or in small groups; assessing and delivering therapy in a child-centred approach.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe using a child-centred approach is key to success. I consider what might interest and motivate the child in terms of resources and materials, and work at a pace appropriate for the child. It is important for the child to experience success but also to be appropriately challenged in order to reach their potential. I embrace a fun approach when working with children and would like to provide them with a positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2001 with a 2:1 in French Studies. During my 3rd year I lived in Montreal where I studied French, Spanish, and Italian at McGill University. After graduating I qualified as a Teacher of English as a Second Language and spent the next few years teaching English in the UK and Paris as well as travelling to Spain, where I lived for three months.
In 2005 I gained a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages (French and Spanish) from The University of Bath. From 2005 to 2006 I taught in a variety of primary and secondary schools before taking a permanent post at Matravers School in Wiltshire, where I worked for five years and gained internal promotion to second in department in 2010. During my time at the school I prepared students for both GCSE and A Level exams.
I also led trips to both Paris and Barcelona to give students a taste of life in these countries and an opportunity to practise their language skills in real life situations.
I have been working as a private tutor since 2012 and also work as an examiner for both AQA and Edexcel, marking the writing component of the French and Spanish GCSE. I recently completed a Master's in Technical and Specialised Translation (with distinction) from the University of Westminster.

Teaching Experience:

I have five years experience of teaching French and Spanish in a permanent post and currently work on a casual basis in various secondary schools in the Barnet area. I have been working as private tutor since 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a positive working relationship between tutor and student is the cornerstone of a successful learning experience. I aim to make my students feel at ease and safe to take risks in order to build their confidence and experience success. I tailor-make lessons to each individual student's learning needs and preferences so that the student is always at the centre of the learning process. I use a range of materials in my teaching including online resources, worksheets, games, speaking activities, and past exam papers where appropriate.

Comments from students:

From John:
"I've had several Mandarin lessons with Wei so far, and have always found her to be very professional, friendly and well organised. She has a flexible approach to learning, tailoring the lessons to meet my needs and requirements. The lessons are informative, relaxed and fun.

Highly recommended.

John"

Comment from Corinna "Da jia hao" As a senior pupil of Madras College studying Mandarin, Dawson and Wei have been very helpful in increasing my confidence with certain aspects of the language, especially pronunciation; finding examples of common English 'sounds' that I could relate to and even recording audio files for me to listen to at home. It was great to be able to go though any difficulties I was having at my own pace instead of competing with my classmates and they were both very patient and friendly, my weekend tutorials with them have been most useful.

Comment from Kenneth "Wei gave me several fun and informal lessons, which were exactly the sort of practice I needed before heading off to China.
With each class she provided more in-depth and involved content than that which I was studying on my own from a textbook. She was also able to give clear answers to any questions I had which helped me to understand points in the language I had been struggling with.
As she is from TianJin her Chinese accent is as close to standard PuTongHua as you can get. I would recommend her as a teacher to anyone."

Maths:
I am very passionate and enthusiastic in helping students to understand and discover Maths as an interesting and easy subject. I ensure my tutoring improves my student's grade and confidence to achieve most success and best possible results in exams. Their achievements are my goal and priority. I am very patient and attentive to the needs of the students so that we can attain our goal .

Teaching Experience:

Last year I ran after school Spanish revisions with GCSE pupils in a secondary school in Doncatser and delivered private Spanish and English tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to tailor my lessons to learners' individual needs nad make it fun as it helps memorising new vocabulary. In my opinion learners should be immersed in new language/ culture as much as possible, therefore I always use videos, podcasts, DVDs and try to get my students to speak.

Personal Description:
I am currently a final year medical student at Imperial College London and also have a 2.1 degree in Biomedical Science from Aston University.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored one to one biology for GCSE and A Level students for 7 years and have spent 9 years tutoring children of primary school age and secondary school students aged 11-14. I have worked part time at a tuition centre for two years teaching both groups and one to one lessons for ages ranging from 6 to 18, in the fields of Science, Maths and English. Additionally, I have run large revision sessions during the run up to exams, covering essential aspects of the syllabus.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style varies greatly 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 method is an effective means of interacting with the student and understanding his/ her ability. With older students, I always prefer to let the student dictate how he/she would like to learn and adapt my teaching style to their learning.

For all levels, it is important to summarise at the end of each session and provide questions to help apply knowledge.

Personal Description:
After over nearly 30 years work experience in Branch Management, Field Sales and Sales Management roles, I have recently started as a Teaching Assistant in Maths, helping weaker pupils in Years 7 to 11 get a better understanding of Maths.
I am comfortable teaching up to GCSE level.

Teaching Experience:

6 months providing after school tuition and lunch time homework support for all year groups

Tutoring Approach:

I like to work with students to find out their individual learning styles and adapt my teaching style to suit. I prefer it to feel more like teamwork than tuition as we work together to understand principles. To ensure that these principles are understood, worked examples are discussed.
For All students, especially those taking their GCSE, exam techniques will be taught, refined and practised.

Personal Description:
I am an LSE graduate in BSc Accounting and Finance and have also obtained postgraduate qualifications in Statistics, I am currently a dedicated and passionate full-time tutor, I am passionate about my subjects and dedicated to seeing students do well.

I was privileged enough to be afforded a very good private education and originally decided to take on tutoring as an opportunity to share my knowledge with others and allow them to realise their full potential and all the other benefits of a good education.

Five main factors have contributed to my success so far namely,
- I have high expectations of myself and my students, I believe every student can achieve the best grades with the right help

- I instil confidence and a "can do" attitude in students, regularly reminding them that nothing is "hard" if you have been shown how to do it properly

- I listen to students, this keeps lessons interactive and ensures I have constants update on their thought process and current understanding

- I am relatively young so students feel comfortable engaging with me and enjoy learning from me

- I ensure continuous support for students, I make myself available for questions via phone or e-mail throughout the day to ensure the support does not end at the end of the lesson!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over 5 years in this time my reliability and skill has enabled me to develop a good reputation which has allowed me to have a consistent base of 15 - 20 students on a weekly basis.

I have tutored university students attending Russell group universities such as Queen Mary and Warwick and have taught GCSEs and A-levels across all major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and iGCSE. Additionally I have had students admitted to prestigious private schools such as Eltham College and Bromley High after excelling in their 11+ exams.

Career Highlights!

- Academic Year 2011 - 2012 I helped a student who was predicted a C grade at GCSE to achieve a coveted place at Eltham College after passing a difficult 16+ exam, we then continued to work together to secure an A grade at GCSE

- Academic year 2012 - 2013 I helped a student who scored a D grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 level after 8 months of tuition. He was the only student to score an A grade in his school since 2007.

- Academic Year 2013 - 2014 I helped a student who scored a C grade at AS Economics achieve an A grade at A2 Economics with an impressive 97% in Unit 1, 99% in Unit 2 and 100% in Unit 3. He had also had three previous tutors who he was dissatisfied with before coming to me.

- Academic Year 2015 - 2016 I help a student who had achieved a B in AS Economics go on to achieve an A* in A2 Economics with a 95% average across the unit 3 and 4 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach embodies a long term approach to learning I teach students in a way which will allow them to be successful in higher education as well as their more short term exams. I also try to make students more confident in their abilities overall not just the material I teach.

I strongly believe that a solid understanding of basic principles is the foundation to success in academic study. I concentrate a lot of time and energy on instilling these basic principles in students.

I am also a strong believer in understanding over 'rope learning' I ensure that pupils understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, never encouraging them to simply regurgitate what they have seen previously.

I also encourage practical understanding of concepts frequently referencing real world examples and using objects to illustrate theory as I recognise that theory on its own given no relevance is harder to remember. Supplementary to this I also relate teaching material to potential job roles and tasks which I have knowledge of (mostly Banking or Business related) in order communicate usefulness to students and keep things interesting.

Finally I believe teaching successfully is ultimately about listening to your students I constantly encourage students to question things and express anything they don't understand or are not too sure of. If a student looks unsure or hesitant about something I will ask open questions or get them to explain concepts to me in order to fully grasp their understanding. This also helps build their confidence and ability to express themselves accurately.

I have previously tutored in Photography for 50 an hour as a Senior photographer, team supervisor and Lab technician on board cruise ships.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a 'what you want to know' style! Photography is a wide subject and as well as being able to teach you technical details about Cameras and Photoshop I have an artistic eye for image making and can tutor you in many photography techniques including composition and lighting or basics in running a freelance photography business.

Also note that my tutoring service is only available to take place in neutral public places. Quiet coffee shops or cafes provide a great relaxed atmosphere for one on one learning in Photography and offer a possibility to easily access interesting subjects to 'test photograph'

Personal Description:
I'm currently in the final stages of my PhD in cell and molecular biology, working on my thesis write up. I also teach on undergraduate biological science modules at the University, aiding students one to one in their laboratory practicals, providing feedback and marking coursework. I also have a BSc (1st, Hons) in Cell & Molecular Biology, having covered a range of modules including the following (all the a 1st Class standard); Advanced Topics in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology of Cancer, Laboratory Techniques for the Biosciences, Mammalian Biochemistry, Clinical Pharmacology, Plant Science, Genes & Genomes, Microbiology, Virology & Immunology.

I feel my experience of teaching students and the wide variety of science outreach projects I have worked on, make me an excellent private tutor for any undergraduate or A-level, or casual adult student wishing additional support with their studies.

I am also happy to discuss tutoring GCSE students, although I am not aware of the specifics of the content of the current syllabus.My CRB check (as carried out s part of STEM ambassador training) has expired. However if I receive multiple requests requiring one I am happy to reapply to update it.

Teaching Experience:

Specialist/Associate Lecturer, Undergraduate Practical Classes, Oxford Brookes University Oct 2010 - Current (Part time)

Teaching assistant for undergraduate laboratory and computer room based practical classes for a range of modules, in the Department of Biological and Bio-medical Sciences. Responsibilities include aiding students during a wide variety of practical classes with their experiments, calculations and written work. Role also includes marking and giving feedback on laboratory reports and records, assessment sheets and related coursework.

I have also worked on a wide range of science outreach projects. These include:

BBSRC British Bio-science Festival - Outreach event for the general public
Visions of the Future Interdisciplinary Event at the Pegasus Theatre
Oxford Brookes Science Bazaar - Family outreach event, volunteer 2011, 2012 & 2014
Fascination of Plants Day at Oxford Botanical Garden - General public outreach event
Science Oxford Science Cabaret - Family friendly outreach event

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working directly with others, preferably one on one, to help them develop their knowledge about a subject. This applies especially to biological sciences, which I'm passionate about. Combined with my range and depth of knowledge of the subject area, as well as understanding how university work is assessed and what constitutes good exam technique, I am confident to work with someone to help them achieve their full potential in the subject. I am also experienced at working with a range of learning styles and like to work with the student to see what best works for them with regards to getting the most from and improving their study. I am also a very sociable and friendly person who has a great love of science, which I think comes across in my teaching style, approaching the subject as something that can be both interesting and enjoyable to tackle learning.

Personal Description:
I am a First Class Psychology and Sociology graduate from the University of Cambridge (2012-2015).

Teaching Experience:

I undertook a 6 month teaching placement in Port Elizabeth, South Africa at a mixed secondary school in 2012. Here I taught students from ages 12-19 in both English Language & Literature, and Life Orientation.

Since leaving university I have run numerous study technique sessions with students of all ages. In addition, I regularly tutor various students at both A-Level and GCSE in a variety of essay based subjects.

I have also run workshops and seminars at secondary schools, colleges, and universities to teach students how to study more effectively through mastering their mindset.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in study skills and techniques after undergoing a dramatic transformation in how I approached studying myself during my third year of university. After two years of being a low-mid 2i student at Cambridge I changed my entire approach to study through developing a number of study tips/tricks/hacks rooted in the science of Positive Psychology.

Students who often need tutoring are not those lacking in intelligence. For many not reaching their true potential it is their mindset and approach to learning that lets them down.

This is where I come in- I share my story of how in my third year I actually started working fewer hours, stopped getting stressed out, and completely changed my relationship with learning and education.

My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge them to apply these techniques themselves.

Areas I specialise in include:
- Fostering Positive Study Habits
- Eliminating Distractions & Increasing Focus
- Stress Reduction & Redirection
- Mastering Time Management
- Conscious Note Taking
- Perfecting Exam Technique

Personal Description:
Im a native portuguese tutor currently living in England with a Degree and MBA in Tourism management and hospitality subjects (which can bring something extra to the student) with a passion for languages.
Although I come from Portugal many the students want to learn the brazilian portuguese and I am prepared to teach European Portuguese as well as Brazilian Portuguese.

Teaching Experience:

I have 1-year experience as tutor to all levels and interests. To groups, one-to-one or via Skype.

As a tutor I worked as Portuguese, English and other tourism subjects to primary and secondary students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning languages should be fun and exciting. I am very motivated and like to make sure my students are improving and understading all the content every day. Keep them motivated is essencial, so my teaching is more focused in conversation and exercices.

I also think the best way to teach students is to engage them, for that, I use videos, books, pictures and other resouces from the internet to facilitate the understanding of the language and culture.

Personal Description:
I'm an expat Canadian whose been living in the UK for nearly 5 years now. I've been in the teaching industry since 2008 when I graduated from teachers college, and have experience teaching children, teens, and adults in Canada, Britain, Korea, Thailand, and Spain. I've travelled to most places in Europe, Asia, and South East Asia, and am hoping to continue my travels soon. I'm also a yoga teacher and daily practitioner as yoga is definitely a passion of mine. I have ideas of taking more yoga teaching courses as well as holistic health courses in the future in order to add to my repertoire of teaching skills.

Teaching Experience:

I received my Bachelors of Education in Primary-Junior Education in 2008, and then had 2 years of substitute teaching experience in both Canada and the UK. Due to lack of jobs in both countries, I decided to teach for 2 years in Seoul, South Korea, which was a life-changing time as I learned a vast amount of not only teaching but also life skills. I then received my CELTA certificate in Thailand, which has since allowed me to teach English as a Foreign Language to adults. I've been teaching at a private language school in Southampton since 2012, with a brief stint in Valencia, Spain, where I taught children at a summer camp, as well as adults at a private language school. Throughout these years, I've tutored a variety of people, including children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make my ESL teaching and materials as real as possible since the purpose of English (as a foreign language) education is to be used in the real world. I'm extremely active and creative, and I like for the students to be extremely involved in and accountable for the own education. I run a student-centred classroom where the teacher facilitates rather than dictates. I'm supportive and knowledgeable about the content, but always try to elicit answers from the students themselves. These qualities can of course be transferred to any teaching moment and to any subject, whether it be learning English grammar to use in the workforce, or be deciphering a text for an exam. I would rather give them tools and strategies to use on their own rather than just give them answers that only have value in that one moment.
