Personal Description:
Everyone calls me Olu, I am young, friendly but strict (I don't know where that came from). I am a doctorate degree student of Nuclear Robotics. I bagged a distinction in my Masters degree and a first class in my Bachelor's program all thanks to those I have taught during revision. You know I have noticed that you study harder when you study to teach others.

So yes, in the area of academics, I have come a long way, learning and teaching, the cycle never ends. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing knowledge, this is one thing I do with passion..<< don't tell anyone >>.

I do not only consider teaching as a Job, but also as a hobby as it is fun making people understand what they had thought was confusing.

Teaching Experience:

My Teaching Experience dates back to my days as an A'Level student preparing for the GCE Cambridge A'Levels Exam in 2005. I made sure I carried all my colleagues along by conducting regular free tutorials.

When I got into the University, I continued. Every other evenings and every weekend, I would take part in tutorial sessions for my colleagues and sometimes for junior colleagues. This I did from 2006 to 2011.

In 2012, I registered as an Online-Tutor and have engaged a number of students in America and UK on mathematics and engineering related subjects. Not to mention that I have been involved in peer revision meetings all through my post graduate days at the University of Manchester where I took charge of conducting Mock Examinations.

To me, this has been fun.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very very simple:

Step 1: Ask you what area you have problems with.
Step 2: Tell you to go on and teach me the aspects you know and even the aspects you do not know.
Step 3: I will take note of your strengths and weaknesses.
Step 4: Leave the rest to me, the tutorials would be worth the time and pay.

PS: Many times, from experience, students think they have problems with a topic, but all they have is just "no confidence about what they know". That is where we come in, to restore your confidence in the things you know and add to it. Hence, my best approach is to keep the interaction "both-ways".

Personal Description:
An enthusiastic and out going Latin American Spanish teacher from Argentina with a passion for helping others improve their language skills! - Especially Spanish

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Spanish as a foreign language in Argentina and UK for a couple of years.
_________________________________
In addition to languages I also teach drama and free expression for beginners and would be actors. A great technique to learn if you want to build personal confidence in every aspect of life - from delivering business presentations to building personal friendships.

Tutoring Approach:

I design the classes depending on the student needs. Normally my classes include:
________________________________
Regular classes with a careful mix of 25% listening, 25% oral, 25% reading and 25% writing skills all of which can be adjusted to meet the specific needs of the student. The classes use a range of techniques and games and inevitably have special homework assignments!

Conversation classes: In these the student and I develop special themes (for college, work or just for fun!) and use those "themes" to help build grammar and vocabulary. The conversation classes are dynamic, full of games, and involve a little bit of acting - what better way to out your language skills into practice!

Special classes: In these we handle a wide range of "real life" activities, from watching a movie, going to the supermarket, visiting a park and learning how to tango!
________________________________
The lessons can range from an hour to a whole day - so the classes can fit around your social, school and business life. So now there is no excuse in not getting going!

Atrevete!

Personal Description:
I am a secondary Head of Music in North London, living in Hertfordshire, with a first class Music degree from the University of Oxford.

I have six years of teaching and tutoring experience for both AQA and Edexcel GCSE exams, and Edexcel AS and A Level. I teach and play the clarinet and piano, as well as having studied music theory, history and various other aspects of music to a very high level.

I am happy to tutor school-age pupils to help with their classroom work, GCSEs and A-Levels, and also teach music theory in preparation for ABRSM examinations. I am also a teacher of clarinet for all ages, up to grade 8 standard, and of piano up to grade 6 standard.

Teaching Experience:

- Currently working as a Head of Music in North London, teaching students aged 11-18.

- I have taught for six years at a range of secondary schools, working as both a classroom teacher and as an instrumental and vocal teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to first help pupils work through problems with their existing school work, in order to patch up any difficulties that they are currently having, then to additionally teach them extra things in order to keep their interest in the subject.

I would expect pupils to complete an amount of homework each week, depending on their existing workload, in order to help them to make progress.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in laser beam shaping and a first class BSc in Physics. I am a published scientist and I have teaching experience ranging from lecturing at undergraduate level to tutoring A-level and GCSE students.

I am 34 years old, married with a three year old son. As well as tutoring I also work for a leading firm of UK and European patent attorneys in central London, helping people and companies to protect their ideas.

I am approachable, patient and friendly, and an ideal tutor for anyone needing extra help in Maths or Physics.

Whether you sitting your GSCEs or preparing for university exams, I can help you gain the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to gain your full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Maths and Physics in the UK since 2006.

I have experience in lecturing at first and second year undergraduate level, having taught the Fundamentals of Physics course to English speaking students at Northeastern University in China from 2012-2014.

From 2006 to 2012, I tutored an average of nine students per year, mainly for Maths GCSE and Physics A-levels across the OCR, EdExcel and AQA exam boards.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an enthusiastic approach to tutoring and always try to ensure a real sense of progress and satisfaction by the end of each lesson by working on high priority problem areas first. I pride myself on my ability to explain complex ideas in a simple and memorable way and I also teach exam and revision techniques that really do work.

I offer a friendly relaxed teaching environment tailored to the learning style of each person I teach. During lessons I draw up notes that the student can keep, I work through relevant exam questions, and I set homework within the limits agreed by the student and/ or the parent so that the student can build their confidence in the time between lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old qualified teacher, who is enthusiatic about all areas of the curriculum and supporting children in their learning journey.
I have a particular interest in languages and Literacy, and enjoy a rewarding job as a classroom teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in the classroom for seven years. I have had a variety of posts, teaching many children from different backgrounds and with different learning styles.
I have experience teaching children from five to eleven, and I also work with children up to Year eight in my current post.
I am the Learning Support Co-ordinator at my place of work as well as Year One class teacher, which enables me to have a greater insight into different learning and teaching styles, and support the learning of a diverse range of children.

Tutoring Approach:

I will direct each session towards a clear learning objective, and plan various activities to support and consolidate this. I believe that every child has uniques learning styles, and I will endeavour to plan sessions to appeal to these. Children learn best when they are fully enaged, and I will plan sessions to appeal to any strengths or particular interests of each child.
I will build a good working relationship with each student, as children work best when they are comfortable in a situation.
I hope that the pupils I support will have great enjoyment and success as a result of receiving tuition from me.

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old Masters student taking a career break from advertising to study full time in an area I am passionate about - International Development, at SOAS in London. I previously graduated from the University of Manchester in 2010, where I studied French and Spanish as a Joint Honours, and received a 2:1 with a Distinction in spoken Spanish. I have lived and worked full time in Paris and Argentina for 1 year as a part of my degree. I also studied Portuguese for 2 years at University and received a High First at Intermediate level. I love languages and take great pleasure in passing on this enthusiasm to others!

Teaching Experience:

-I was a teacher's assistant for the head of the French department at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys in June 2010. I assisted in teaching Years 7 and Upper Six, and all years in between with class sizes ranging from 6 to 32. I attended 12 hours of training on behavioral management, how to engage pupils and effective teaching prior to this placement which prepared me well.
-I informally taught English as a foreign language to French, Spanish and Portuguese adults on a weekly basis for 2 years whilst studying languages at university, as language exchanges.
-I have tutored Spanish and Chemistry GCSE students through this site with positive results, references available on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a professional, friendly tutor with great enthusiasm for learning. Can tutor to boost student's level, or help to prepare for exam deadlines. For GCSEs, A-Levels, University exams or personal deadlines, we can work out a learning plan to fit the student's requirements. Usual areas to work on are reading/writing/listening/speaking skills. I have my own material (films, tv clips, music) to supplement the student's own if needed for languages.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Lucy

Personal Description:
I have lived in the Virginia Water area for over 20 years and have 2 sons who are now at university. My undergraduate degree was in maths at Aston University and I studied for a PhD at Reading University. Since leaving university I formed and run a computer company for 27 years and have since formed and run 2 successful businesses as Managing Director. I now run my current business on a part-time basis.

Teaching Experience:

I lectured mathematics at Reading University to undergraduates and have tutored many A-level students.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to work with the knowledge students have on a subject and then build from there. With maths it is at times necessary to re-visit the fundamentals - these can be forgotten as time passes. I have a wealth of information sheets and tips covering the various topics on the syllabus and make use of past papers to prepare students for their exams. I like to discover a students strengths and weaknesses early on and believe my experience helps me with that.

I consider myself calm, patient and supportive. Lessons are structured to and tailored to meet the student's needs and include a variety of hands on material and varied learning styles.

Personal Description:
I am a Music graduate hoping be a primary or secondary school teacher. Teaching is a passion of mine and and hope to gain and learn as much experience as possible within this sector. I am friendly, with excellent communication skills. When working with pupils, i always want them to succeed and get the grades they need through motivation, encouragement and making them feel they are able to ask questions at any point. The most rewarding part of tutoring is knowing that pupils are achieving good grades and they feel confident enough in school to do the tasks in class.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant and help pupils with their school work and homework. I have supported pupils in many different subjects from Maths, English, Science to Art and Drama. I have developed different ways of teaching through one to one lessons which i currently do at the school with a pupil and have been doing this since February 2012. I have worked previously in a Primary School as a voluntary teaching assistant.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel its important to look at what pupils are currently working on in school which can also include homework they are struggling with and help them with that. I create a friendly environment where they are comfortable enough to ask questions and able to tell me when they still don't understand.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, creative and highly experienced teacher of English language and literature. I retired In 2014 from the full-time secondary school teaching post I held for 23 years, at an independent girls' school in Lincolnshire. I taught throughout the school, at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and have a strong proven commitment to raising academic standards; my students have achieved consistently excellent GCSE and A Level grades. Although I have a particular passion for teaching literature, I am a rigorous teacher dedicated to raising standards of literacy through my teaching of English language, and to the educational and personal development of young people more widely, especially those in transition to higher education.

As well as teaching my academic subject, I was a sixth form personal tutor for 18 years, monitoring my students' academic progress, and guiding and mentoring those applying to university, assisting with UCAS applications and personal statements, or helping tutees plan for a gap year or for employment - a role which I found particularly fulfilling. I also have experience of teaching in further education and have been successful in teaching mature students from different cultural backgrounds.

For two years 2012-14 , I supervised sixth form students taking the AQA Extended Project Qualification. I greatly enjoy one - to-one tuition.

In a career spanning more than 40 years in all, I have built up extensive subject knowledge and teaching expertise, which I can adapt to students ranging from 11 years to adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my most recent post, which I held for 23 years until my recent retirement, I taught English Language and English Literature throughout the school: to pupils aged 11-14 at Key Stage 3, to pupils taking GCSE exams, and to sixth formers taking AS and A level English.
At GCSE and AS/A Level my pupils have obtained consistently excellent results. I have taught a very wide range of set texts for literature and have taught courses by different exam boards, such as Edexcel, and OCR, and the CIE IGCSE.

My teaching has often involved one-to-one sessions with pupils who need extra support and I have taught those whose attainment in the subject is modest, as well as higher achievers in English.

My teaching experience prior to this included teaching for a total of 7 years full and part-time in further education colleges, and I have also taught English as a foreign language for the British Council.

I have been tutoring privately since retiring from full time school teaching, and I currently tutor students ranging from 15 to 21, assisting with preparation for GCSE exams, A Levels, and at university level. I have been tutoring students following a range of different GCSE courses and examining boards, including Edexcel IGCSE, Cambridge IGCSE, and AQA GCSE courses, both language and literature qualifications, and also the Edexcel combined A Level Language and Literature. My tutoring role includes assisting my tutees with revision of a wide range of set texts, demonstrating my adaptability and expertise in quickly grasping what different exam techniques are required. My private tutees gained English language and literature grades that exceeded their school teachers' expectations in the summer 2015 round of GCSE exams, achieving grades ranging from C (D predicted) to A* (B predicted). In summer 2016, again, my private tutees achieved good grades at least one grade higher than predicted at school and have been able to continue to the next stage of their studies, including university entrance.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a natural continuation of my approach as a classroom teacher. I am passionate about my subject and prepare lessons thoroughly and imaginatively. I begin by making sure I am fully in the picture with regard to the specific course being followed and the exam criteria, and use the exam boards' websites to source relevant materials such as past papers and teaching resources.

I always have a clear lesson plan and realistic aim of what I wish to achieve in the time available. I like people and I am a friendly, outgoing person who will communicate successfully with a tutee; I enjoy the company of young people and am experienced in putting my tutees at their ease and building their confidence, which I believe is very important. I form productive relationships with those I teach and am good at listening to them and assessing their needs, and adjusting my teaching strategy accordingly.

As well as preparing thoroughly, I mark work meticulously and give very detailed and helpful feedback, both in writing and orally. I set relevant work to be completed for the next tutorial, and monitor progress closely; I stay in regular contact with my students and/or their parents via email and phone.

I am a hardworking and sympathetic tutor with the interests of my tutees at heart; my aim is to help them achieve their full potential and gain exam success.

i prefer to tutor in my own home where I am set up to receive my tutees in a quiet environment designed to maximise academic concentration. I do not tutor on Fridays or at weekends. I am usually able to tutor in school holidays, when I can offer longer, more intensive revision sessions.


Here are some recent 2016 testimonials from former tutees and their parents:

A Level

We turned to a private tutor because our daughter received a disappointing result in her first year of A Level English, but she knew she could do better and wanted to go to a first class University to study English. Her coursework had been excellent and most of her homework was good, too, but her exam technique was less secure. Isla definitely made a difference. She is a nurturing teacher who interacts with the student really well. Isla gave good advice about preparing for the exam paper and gave support in revision of the various texts, which boosted our daughter's confidence. Having achieved the necessary entry grades, our daughter is now at Newcastle University starting her degree course and wants to keep in touch with Isla."
Sally S, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, parent of A Level student

"As someone who wanted to pursue English at university, my grade C at AS Level was not good enough, so during Year 13 we found a private tutor to help me with my A Level English Language and Literature course. Isla put lots of time into helping me come out with an overall high grade B. She gave me wonderful advice with my creative coursework and really enhanced my knowledge of the two plays I was studying for my written exam. I am so grateful and will continue to keep in touch with Isla as I enter my degree course at Newcastle University for English Literature and Creative Writing."
Emily S, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, A Level tutee

GCSE
"Isla provided excellent support during Year 10 and 11 to our daughter in relation to her GCSE studies in both English Literature and Language. This complemented her learning at school and enabled focus on those areas where extra support or explanation was needed. Isla was very flexible in her approach, tailoring her lessons to our daughter's needs and providing additional support on the run up to the exams themselves. Although our daughter isn't continuing her English studies at A Level, Isla is going continue to provide support in relation to essay structure and comprehension in the subjects she has chosen to study. We would highly recommend her. "
Rachel M, Leicestershire, parent of GCSE pupil




Please note:
Some tutees opt for longer sessions fortnightly , rather than one hour weekly. My fees for longer sessions for GCSE and A Level students are 60 for an hour and a half, and 75 for a two hour tutorial, representing a small reduction on the hourly fee of 45. My fees include preparation for the lesson, marking of set written homework, the actual contact time, and follow-up emails,

Personal Description:
Qualified, professional English teacher - 25 years experience at all levels and abilities.

I have a personal, friendly approach, which is individualised to learners` needs, following initial/informal assessment and discussion with parents or with learners themselves.

We can follow a negotiated programme of study or I can assist with planning and preparation for classwork assignments, revision and study for exams.

Thank you for reading my profile - I look forward to working with you.

Teaching Experience:

25 years as a teacher of English in the National Curriculum - up to A level and English as an Additional Language. I teach to all abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique and logical thought.

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.

Personal Description:
Hi!

After graduating from Oxford University in English Literature, I went on to do what I'd always planned on doing: becoming a musician! I'm a composer, producer and performer, playing several instruments and recording in my home studio, as well as tutoring in both English and Music.

For me, English as a subject has really helped with music, especially with writing lyrics, but also more generally by encouraging me to think creatively, openly, and critically.

Both subjects are really about feeling inspired by creativity, and the electric feeling of making something that is your own, and this is why I'm passionate about both!

Teaching Experience:

(2010 to 2013) English tutorials - During my time at Oxford, as well as being taught myself, I would often have to help students in the years below me with their work, aiding them in the way they approached their studies and wrote essays under pressure.

(2013 to present) Tutoring in music production - I have now taught several students in songwriting and music production, in particular using the recording software Logic Pro. These are lessons I really enjoy - encouraging creativity in a free-flowing and fun way, whilst teaching the music theory behind songwriting, and the complicated techniques involved in recording and mixing music.

(2014 to present) Tutoring drums - For the last 2 years I have been teaching beginners drums to a pupil, helping him to improve his technique, introducing him to new styles of music, and fostering his passion for music.

Tutoring Approach:

English - Doing well at English as a school subject, especially below A-Level, is mainly about following whichever syllabus the student is learning very carefully, and ticking all the boxes required of an essay as efficiently as possible. However, the key to improving at it (as with all subjects), is simply learning to enjoy it more. One to one tuition is perfect for this, because I have time to present the subject matter in a way that each particular student finds useful and enjoyable. I also love to share with students my love of the little things in literature, creative or critical writing that make it worthwhile - the fun in the way sentences and thoughts are put together perfectly. Ultimately, acquiring an enthusiasm for language can help with communicating in any context, whether you're teaching, learning, making new friends or colleagues, or telling a joke.

Music - I play drums, piano, guitar, and sing, but my real strength is in songwriting and producing. If you're looking for a tutor to inspire creative expression, rather than grades based instrument learning, then I'm the tutor for you! I've composed and produced over 200 songs, including music for BBC Radio 4 drama, and I'm especially adept at modern electronic music production. The key to becoming more creative in music, is acquiring a few basic tools that allow you to run with an idea as quickly as possible, without thinking about it, and to learn how to come at a composition from different angles, to prevent frustration or writer's block. Music should be fun and hands on, and it should make you feel proud.
