Personal Description:
I am 24 years old, based in South Oxfordshire and currently working for the Civil Nuclear Police full time Monday to Friday. I am looking to tutor in my spare time, not only to earn some extra money for my husband and I, but also as I have a passion for teaching and it is a career I always considered myself following. I have a degree in English Literature and Creative writing from Kingston University London, graduating in 2013 with a 2:1 BAHons. I have always had a passion for English, particularly poetry, writing regularly in my free time. I have wanted to become a teacher from a very young age however, due to financial needs, was unable to undertake a PGCE course immediately after finishing my undergraduate degree.
As I work for the Police I have been fully background checked and passed the DBS checks which were conducted between January and April 2016.

Teaching Experience:

I have completed two weeks work experience in a primary school in North Wales where I helped with the reception and year one classes. I was tasked with helping the children with all their work, from spelling and maths, to reading and writing. I would be willing, as a tutor, to help primary school age children with all subjects; from 11+ I would be more suited to English Literature or English Language however I am willing to discuss the child's needs and am happy to help with pre-GCSE maths, science or history also. I regularly check Undergraduate level essays for grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors for my two sisters in law, one of whom is studying War Studies and the other Primary Teaching. When in my late teens I would read with a young boy every week to help him improve.

Tutoring Approach:

Though I have never been employed as a tutor previously, I do have experience working with children and young adults, as well as a keen eye for detail. I am extremely patient and willing to persevere to find the learning method which works best for the child or young adult; I have experience in this with my youngest sister in law, who is just 16, whom I have been helping with her GCSE chemistry; chemistry is certainly not my subject, however I took time to read through her text books and her work, to ensure I knew exactly what she needed to do, before helping her to find a way to understand herself. I appreciate that not all subjects come easily to every individual and that, though I may have a passionate love of English, not everyone will share that and so, when tutoring anyone I should not be telling them that English is great - that is just my opinion; instead, I should be helping them to access it, to understand it better, and making it a little easier for them in the process. If, on top of that, they come to love the subject also, that is great; if not, that is fine too.
I would always propose that I meet once with the parents,and child or young adult, free of charge, to discuss the exact requirements: That way I can come to the first tutoring session knowing what needs improving, where my help is most needed and, also, how I think the tutee needs to taught - do they find the subject boring? In which case I need to show them ways in which it can become more interesting, even fun. Do they find the subject really difficult? In which case we need to find ways to make it more accessible and less daunting. I also can leave the fist session knowing exactly how the parents or guardians want me to tutor their child - do you want me to set my own tasks and homework for the tutee to help improve the weaker aspects of their work? Do you want me to help them with work they are being set in school, perhaps a specific text? All of this will help ensure that both the tutee and I get the most out of the time we spend together.

Subjects
  • English
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (10 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (12 p.h.)

I am currently a PhD student in History at the University of Leicester, having recently finished an MA in History at the University of Warwick and a BA in History at the University of Leicester. My studies have generally concentrated on British and American history from c.1500 - present. My main strengths are in modern history from 1700 to 1945, however I am versatile and able to teach other topics outside these thematic areas.

I am a friendly, enthusiastic and patient character that is able to encourage and teach in a passionate and worth-while manner. I have a wide-ranging experience of teaching and mentoring from a young age (see below)

Please feel free to send me an email with any queries you may have.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students in several capacities, including: personal tutoring (year seven up to A Levels); voluntary work at primary and secondary schools (three schools in total); and through mentoring schemes.

I was also employed as a Cover Supervisor at a high school in West Bromwich for seven months, in which I had to teach students of divergent backgrounds, abilities and ages.

I have learnt and taught in a variety manners, and so I have the ability to tailor tuition around a tutee's specific needs.

Personal Description:
My names Will, I am a recent graduate of the University of hertfordshire, studying music. I've been a percussionist since about the age of 8 and started playing the kit when I was about 10/11. I believe in methodical practicing; focusing on specific techniques and concepts, and not progressing till they are mastered. I like to make the learning experience as musical as possible, so I often have my pupils playing to backing tracks, of my own piano accompaniment. Piano is my other instrument. My main, preferred style of drumming is jazz. Jazz fusion being the strongest sub-genre. I can teach almost any genre apart from maybe heavy metal, as I never took much interest in that, and don't use a double pedal! My main influences out of many I would say are Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, John Bonham, Jojo Mayer and Buddy Rich...

I am also a keen artist, and have studied many avenues of art over my time practicing the subject. After music, it is my biggest interest, and I have been doing it all my life. My area of focus is fine art, but I have plenty of knowledge in other areas. Recently I had an oil painting exhibited in the Royal Albert Hall for the remembrance day.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught numerous pupils in my time as a tutor. With the age range starting at about 8 up to 40 odd. I also took a group percussion class during my A levels, and I'm about to start teaching a fellow student of mine in the upcoming weeks.

I have no formal teaching experience as yet for art, but I have built up a bank of experience over the years, becoming well versed in all mediums and subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching the drums, is to build a strong technical approach through consistent and extended study of the different aspects of drumming and genres they can be used in. I make sure time is taken to master certain elements of drumming technique, but also try to make the lessons as enjoyable as possible, by having an extended library of music to play along to, and also by trying to get the student to explore their own creative ideas, and help find their own voice on the instrument.

My approach to teaching art will be similar to how I teach the drums. I will aim to teach the student all the fundamental techniques I know, experiment with a wide range of media, and help them achieve what I call 'flare,' which some people regard as only being a natural talent, but I think you can find it in almost everyone, If they haven't already found it themselves.

It is vital for students to have confidence in their ability. I try to help students to study in the most efficient way in order to achieve the best results and to realize their true potential.

Personal Description:
I am originally from Valencia in Spain. I am a mum with two children and i have a lot of experience of working with young people. I have a full CRB check available on request and I have held a full clean licence for over 10 years and commuting is not an issue. I can also provide references from families. I enjoy teaching Spanish to all ages and preparing people for their Spanish adventure.

Teaching Experience:

I have 4 years teaching experience in England. I currently teach students from the ages of 6-18 years old. I am confident with the GCSE specifications here in the UK.I also have experience with preparing students to sit their Spanish exams in both A-level and GCSE. I am currently working in a Secondary school assisting students with their written and spoken Spanish. Previously I assisted in a primary school in their Spanish lessons. The results of my students are excelents. In GCSC some of them have A* or 9. In A levels one of my students is going to study in St.Andrews, in Scotland.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a fun approach to Spanish as I feel that adults and children alike learn better when they are having fun. I am also able to offer a Spanish cultural insite into the language many tutors are unable to, this is key to success in the GCSE exam as 25% is based on the Spanish culture.
I have experience in tutoring online.

Personal Description:
Retired, deputy headteacher of a primary school in London. Aged 59. I have two children of my own, aged 12 and 14.

Teaching Experience:

Taught in primary and secondary schools for 34 years. Over 20 years experience as a deputy headteacher. Have taught the full age range of primary school but mostly KS2 (age 7-11). My main role over the last 15 years has been a Year 6 SATS teacher so I have lots of experience for SATS preparation. I also did a lot of work in booster groups in Maths and English, moving children from level 3 to level 4. I have now been tutoring for a year with children aged between 7 and 14. For the last 3 years I have been a Key Stage 2 SATs marker.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim is to improve the ability of the children in the subjects chosen. Most of my tutees find the one-to-one personal touch invaluable because it allows me to quickly identify the areas of difficulty and devise a learning programme to meet these at a pace which the tutee finds comfortable. Many of the parents have commented that one-to-one sessions have rapidly improved the tutee's confidence and has frequently resulted in them being moved up groups in the classroom. Other parents have asked me to prioritise my teaching time working with their children on school homework. I like to create a friendly but purposeful atmosphere. I always give time to the parents at the end of each session so they are kept completely informed about my aims and strategies. I have years of experience and all the relevant materials to support the children in these subjects.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and friendly individual with a passion for learning. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University and subsequently completed an MSc in the History and Philosophy of Science at the London School of Economics. I am fascinated by the natural world and by scientific enquiry. When I'm not teaching or learning I enjoy foreign cinema, playing tennis, and strumming the guitar.

Teaching Experience:

After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a full-time teacher at d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form College, Oxford. During this four-year period, I taught A-level Philosophy, Sociology and Religious Studies (all AQA examining board). More recently, I have worked as a teaching assistant at Canterbury High School, focussing on struggling students and helping them achieve their potential. Concurrently, I have also worked as a private tutor teaching GCSE Maths, Chemistry and Physics as well as 11+ Maths preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

Once I understand exactly what a tutee hopes to achieve (e.g. A* Maths GCSE, or simply understanding algebra) I have three main priorities as a tutor:

i) to identify a students strengths and weaknesses through short tests

ii) to provide a course of study and assessment that will focus on the weaknesses and monitor progress

iii) to give the student belief in themselves and their abilities and to instill a love of learning!

Personal Description:
I am primarily an animal portrait artist who works on a commission basis but I also enjoy painting other subject matter. My favourite medium is pastels as I love the soft effects that can be achieved, especially when dealing with fur. I work privately from my studio facility, which is part of an artist's network in central Hadleigh as well as teaching in people's homes and I also deliver workshops to art groups around Essex.

I exhibit locally and have had work accepted at the Mall Gallery in London. My latest commission was to produce a mural in conjunction with a local primary school. I also have several years experience of working with children in all age groups.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching one-to-one sessions over the last three years from beginners to intermediate and teaching in groups within a workshop session. I have experience of teaching both children and adults in a wide range of mediums, with the ability to differentiate the work if needed.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very supportive and encouraging. I like to put people at their ease, with friendly surroundings, so that they can savour the lesson and gain experience. My goal is to teach my students techniques in both drawing and understanding colour so they can ultimately develop their own style. There is the opportunity to try a range of mediums and learn the skills associated with each.

Personal Description:
As a recent university graduate, I offer a closer bond with students than most tutors due to the lesser age gap. Many exams that students struggle with are ones that I myself have taken, so I can empathise and relate to issues students face on a better level than older tutors. I graduated in English Literature from UEA with a 2:1, achieved A*AA at A Level in English, Philosophy and History, and obtained 10 GCSEs at A* to A and 2 more at B. I was educated at Wilson's School in Surrey which during my time there was consistently ranked as one of the best boys' state schools in the country, and indeed was at number 1 in the rankings for a few years while I was there.

I am currently working towards an MA qualification with a view to going on to a PhD to pursue a career in academic lecturing and tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my experience comes from being on the receiving end of teachers and tutors from entrance exam up until university, and understanding their shortcomings and failings and what could have been done better. Crucially, I understand student mentalities and what students want and need at all levels. I have tutored Year 5-6s in Maths and Year 10-11s in English so far. Since joining UK Tutors I have taught a 9 year old in writing skills and a 15 year old in GCSE English.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a fun and friendly way of helping the student to realise their full potential through going over schoolwork, practice papers and other forms of assessment - but critically, I focus on talking with and building a relationship with the student. I don't want them to see tutoring as just another school classroom with another teacher - it should be a fun and intellectually stimulating environment that they enjoy participating in. My experience has shown that if the student is enjoying themselves, they will perform to a far better standard.

I can offer high level teaching in English and History, as well as Philosophy, Critical Thinking and German to an A Level standard, Maths and Sciences up to GCSE standard, other subjects can be discussed.

Crucially, I was a master at dealing with exam pressure and good coursework - I will provide expert tutoring for students suffering from exam stress and help them to format and write essays for coursework. As I did much of the same things just a few years ago, I understand better than anyone what it feels like!
