Personal Description:
I have a PhD and an MLitt from The University of Glasgow, and a BA (Hons) degree from University of Paisley.

I am an on-line and off-line personal tutor with much experience in several subject areas including English, English Language, English Literature, Media Studies, Film Studies, Theatre Studies, and General Writing Skills. I have taught a range of students off-line from pre-exam age (11+) to Standard Grade, Higher, and university level, and on-line for pre-exam level (12+), GCSE, AS level, A-Level, university level, postgraduate and the adult learners.

Teaching Experience:

A well as being an experienced on-line and off-line personal tutor, I have also had several other academic jobs including:

Lecturer at Forth Valley College

Seminar tutor at The University of Glasgow

Graduate Teaching Assistant at The University of Glasgow

Top-Up Tutor at The University of Glasgow

Step Up to University Lecturer at University of West of Scotland

REACH Tutor at University of Glasgow

Proof Reader at University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Note Taker at University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Study Support Tutor at University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Transcriber at University of the West of Scotland

Support Worker at University of the West of Scotland and Scottish Rural University College

Exam Scribe at University of Glasgow and Scottish Rural University College

Exam Invigilator at Scottish Rural University College

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning should be fun and in a relaxed atmosphere but at the same time academic and useful. My approach to teaching is to have the tutor and student both feel that they are getting a lot out of the experience and that the time is being well used. I will break down subjects into easily manageable blocks and make sure that my student understands the unit before moving on. I also like to vary my tutorials by having some in the form of lectures, some in the form of question and answers, some where I will give students feedback on homework they have done and suggestions to improve what they have done, etc.

I also find that on-line tuition is the best method and students can ask questions that they may not ask if they were face-to-face with someone, it is a much more relaxed approach but students get a lot out of it (and can save all the notes from lessons for use later on).

Recent Testimonials (2014/2015):

"Luke isn't cheap by any stretch of the imagination but I can honestly say he is worth every penny!

Results exceeded all expectations" Mr Dubov (General Curriculum 8-13) 2015

"When you employ Luke, rest assured you are employing the best. This peace of mind alone is worth paying for. I would get full answers to my law essay questions within about 10 minutes.

Facts about tuition:

Your children's education is the one thing you should never settle for second best with, and with recent figures showing 40% of London student's having received Private Tuition at some point in the past - it is imperative you give your children the best chance in life by employing the best tutors.

I am not a part-time student, I am not a part-time graduate or even a part-time professional offering tutoring services. I am a qualified teacher heading up a Law Department in a Surrey Sixth Form College, and teach every day. Therefore I know the syllabus inside out, what the examiner expects, and the pedagogy of how student's learn most effectively. My prices reflect the Stirling and first-class standard of tuition offered.

My rates reflect results. I guarantee an improvement in grade and performance (sometimes evident after just several sessions.) My approach to tuition is very exam focused - especially when close to exams or resits. I don't waste time working through a chunky textbook - I work through past papers with students so they know what to expect, how to prepare, and how to get the most marks possible.

But actions speak louder than words:

One GCSE student joined me working at GCSE Mathematics Grade D/E, he hated maths and was dropping through his sets. Within only a few weeks he had jumped up a grade and by the end of the month he was achieving solid C's. Now 3 months on he is consistently achieving at GCSE grade B (and is now sitting GCSE Higher paper), he is top of his class, and realistically he will be aiming for grade A/A* in the Summer.

Another student joined me at the end of 2012. He was privately educated and was on the border of exclusion, his grades were also extremely low. Within only a month this student was off his report card, and his teachers had noticed a change in attitude and performance. Only a week ago, his report showed clear improvements across the board in both effort and achievement, and his core subjects showed a massive turn around. Behaviour had improved also.

Another student was working at GCSE Mathematics Grade D/E and he required a C in mathematics in order to get onto his College Course. The student had attended extra revision classes and had also been privately tutored but there was no significant change in his results with only 6 weeks until his exams. I tutored this student over the remaining 6 weeks. I focused on exam technique and actual specific exam content and the Student received his Grade C (Highest mark possible on Foundation paper) and was consequently accepted onto his course.

Another Privately educated student was on the Dyslexic spectrum and was struggling to meet the gateway grade C in his Mathematics GCSE. The parents had spent extensive amounts of money on private tuition and the school had put on many extra revision sessions - all to no avail. Within the first tuition slot, I had quickly relaised that the conventional teaching methods were having absolutely no effect. I had to customise my approach and actually found that getting the student to draw out the problems was the only way he could understand and remember them. Over a very short period of time (every Saturday for 5 weeks) the student easily hit the required standard and passed his GCSE maths with no issues.

Now about me:

I graduated from Nottingham Law School with a 1st Class Law Degree. My life in academia is solid: I have been a member of the "National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth" since the age of 11; achieved 11 GCSE's (inc. A* English Literature, A* English Language A* Mathematics A*A* Science) of which my English Literature GCSE Exam mark was amongst one of the top 5 marks Nationwide; achieved 5 AS Levels and 3 A Levels (AAA) to which my marks in English Literature and History were full marks. I am a motivational, electric and honest individual, who strives to achieve the best in both myself and those around me.

Furthermore, I always aim to be a positive role model in addition to tutor.

*For all tutees who undergo initial assessment and follow the recommended course of tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching A-Level Law, Business and Functional Skills (English and Maths GCSE) ,at a Surrey VI Form College. I am also head of the Law Department. This means I also have a current and enhanced CRB check. My past tutoring experience is extensive and spans over 7 years. My experience derives from the many sessions of private tuition I have provided over the years, tutoring at Degree level and predominantly GCSE level (mainly mathematics and English.)

For example, at the moment I am tutoring two brothers (State School) KS3/KS4/GCSE Mathematics who are in year 10 and 8 respectively. I also mentor and tutor a year 8 boy (Whitgift Private School) across the whole syllabus. The year 10 tutee jumped from achieving a grade D/E in the foundation Maths Paper to achieving 100% on the Foundation Papers (a Grade C) and later achieving a grade B in his intermediate Maths Paper (within 3 months.) We aim to achieve an A* on the higher paper for his actual exam. The Whitgift educated tutee was originally tutored 2 hours a week (originally intended for one month) but after clear improvements across the board (both academic and behavioural) this was doubled to 4 hours a week and has continued indefinitely.

Taking into account all my past (7 years worth) and present tutees - I have taught both genders at every age (8 - 18) across all my subject specialisms. This gives me extensive private tuition experience. This comes at a premium in our profession, and is generally more valued than even the most impressive educational background or academic achievements.

My most recent degree level tutee (mature student) describes me as providing a "unique, interesting and intuitive tutoring experience" and assures me from her experience that a tutor in the very heart of academia is all the more useful to a tutee than an old Cambridge professor completely out of touch with a modern syllabus. I also recently tutored and mentored a Saudi Prince through the first year of his Law Degree at Nottingham Law School and he stated he couldn't have done this "without me." I am used to teaching students who have English as a second language, students with learning difficulties (ADHD, Dyslexia) and also Gifted and Talented student.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a modern and pragmatic approach to academia, having recently left University, higher and secondary education. My understanding of what a pupil is "going through" makes my style of teaching all the more useful, as a good rapport between pupil and student will be built. Furthermore, my extensive revision material is the latest and the best. This is due to the fact my resources are second to none.

With regards to Degree level Law - I am happy to assist in any particular areas of difficulty that may span exam preparation or coursework. I am also happy to read through the latter and make recommendations. Having competed in several Nationally esteemed mooting competitions this is an area where I feel my tutoring excels.

I feel it is essential for both tutee and parent to see tangible results from tuition. My approach is very exam based, primarily as I feel it is the best way to learn, and that it increases exam confidence, but also that it offers a medium whereby improvements can be gauged. All my students have shown significant improvements and I operate on a 100% pass rate. I feel every student is capable of achieving full marks, and with the right structured approach and effort - they can and will be achieved.

Personal Description:
am an experienced A Level teacher and examiner for Economics. I currently teach both Economics and Business Studies to A Level and have helped in excess of 150 students achieve an A or an A*. The majority of the students that I work with will increase their grades by at least 1 whole grade.

I am one of London`s leading exam technique experts and regularly deliver exam focused workshops focusing on improving the analytical and evaluative skills that students so often lack and don`t focus on.

I can support you with carefully structured private lessons and guide you with the knowledge that I have gained as examiner for several of the main exam boards for both Business Studies and Economics.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring GCSE and A Level Economics and Business Studies (AQA and Edexcel for both Economics and Business). I mark exam papers for Economics and Business studies so can easily tailor your specific tutoring requirements to the exam requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

I will carrry out an inital assessment with you to ascertain where you struggle most of all, following this inital assessment we will set a plan to follow, setting target grades and regular assessment for you to complete. I will ensure that your lessons are fun and interactive but with the main aim of improving your target grade. I will ensure that the lessons are fun, interactive but most important of all ensure that you improve your understanding and therefore your final grade.

I am happy to take questions on homework that you are stuck on during the week and encourage you to do so. Please see the previous feedback.

Personal Description:
I have several years English teaching and GCSE examining experience following my degree and am currently teaching English/English at GCSE, A level and undergraduate level on a private basis. I have an MA in English which I passed with merit, and have recently embarked on a further Master's degree in Literature and Culture in 19th Century Literature and Culture.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught A Level and GCSE English in FE colleges. Following this I started private tutoring in English at all ages and levels along with some basic Primary maths. More recently my work as an English Literature examiner has enhanced my understanding of student needs and of course the requirements of the GCSE exam syllabus. As I have been tutoring for some time now I am familiar with the varying requirements of all the major exam boards in GCSE and A level English Language and English Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

The greatest thing is seeing the student gain in confidence as their ability grows. One to one tuition enables the student to be honest about problems that are difficult to raise in the classroom at school or college. Consequently the tutor can focus on the individual needs of the student. This is the philosophy I adopt in tutoring. I am very conscientious, approachable and happy to adapt to the needs of the individual student , then watch them thrive.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from a Masters degree in drama at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama having graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English. Teaching has always been a great passion of mine and one to one tutoring is the most rewarding, in its opportunity for directness and specificity.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for three years and have also tutored drama in schools over the last few years. I have also had teaching experience abroad, teaching English as a foreign language in Indian and African schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to make learning fun whilst also ensuring fast and effective progress. I ensure that I get to know my students' ways of learning as soon as possible in order to tailor my tutoring style to their individual needs. I hope to be able to offer a way of learning different but utterly beneficial to the current exam syllabuses which can often seem fairly daunting and rigid on first impression.

Personal Description:
I am a 54 year old mother of three grown up children and one a adorable granddaughter. I love working with young people and children. And really enjoy encouraging young people to fullfill their potential. I may be slightly more expensive than university students who offer tuition however I have teaching and exam experience and good exam results.

I have 14 years experience teaching Biology in an outstanding school; teaching GCSE and A Level.

I have a good exam results track record. On two occasions supporting over half of my GCSE students to gain A*; as well as many of my A level students gaining A and A*.

I also tutor primary aged children Maths and English.

My tutoring takes place after school and on Saturday mornings at my own premises.

Teaching Experience:

I have some early years experience from when I lived in New Zealand for fourteen years. However, my more relevant experience to this is I have a 2:1 degree in Biomedical science, and 13 years experience of teaching KS 3 science, KS 4 and A level Biology.

Tutoring Approach:

As I am a very positive person I encourage my students with lots of praise. However, this is not just when they do well but also when they try hard. I emphasise that its learning from mistakes that improves learning. I strongly encourage the ethos of having an open mindset; only by giving something a go can you succeed! I lead my students to become independent thinkers and learners.

Personal Description:
I'm a certified teacher working as an online tutor for students in Norfolk and Suffolk. In university I had the opportunity to study a variety of subjects, including English, psychology, history and statistics. I'm able to tutor children, adolescents and adults in the following subjects and levels:

English/Literacy for Key Stages 1-3, GCSE and A-Level.
Maths for Key Stages 1-3.

Psychology (GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate)
History (KS3 and GCSE)

IT/Computing (Primary, KS3 & adults)
English as a Second Language (for adults)

Currently I offer all of my tuition online, mainly via Skype. I also make use of an online whiteboard for maths lessons, and occasionally for English grammar.

See the "Subject Taught" section below for rates per subject and level. Computing/IT and English as a Second Language for adults are set at a discounted rate.

Don`t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Teaching Experience:

In the UK, I have experience tutoring for two years in London, Surrey and East Anglia. I've also tutored students for four years across a number of Canadian universities, such as the University of Toronto.

Tutoring Approach:

For younger students, I assess them on their first appointment to see where their strengths and weaknesses are. I then focus the lessons on the areas they need improvement in, using an individualized approach that is suitable for that particular student. I also help students prepare for examinations, such as the GCSE; in this case I mostly focus on giving them tasks and questions that resemble what they will face on their tests.

For A-level and degree students, I'm usually asked to provide assistance with a specific task. For example, I've helped my students construct outlines in order to structure their essays, answer typical questions that will come up on their exams, and proof read their essays to check content, clarity and grammar. I can also clarify theories that are difficult to understand and help students generate ideas for their thesis.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Hana and I am very excited at this opportunity to become a tutor.

I obtained 10 GCSEs, including an A* in French and English. I then moved on to take the Intenational Baccalaureate rather than A-levels which improved my general skills as well as subject knowledge. I achieved a level 5 in both French and English Literature (both at higher level).
I am currently studying French and Art at university.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I did a week of work experience in a primary school, working with children from the age of 4 up until the age of 11. During this placement I assisted with English and reading, art lessons and French lessons. The experience was very rewarding and I even received (handmade) presents from some of the students when I left!

Very recently I worked and lived in a château in France for 8 weeks, vastly improving my level of French during my stay. I also began to teach some French children a bit of English, but most of my time was taken up speaking French with the locals and visitors who came to stay in the château.

I have also helped my younger brother and neighbours with homework and revision several times!

Tutoring Approach:

I hope to tutor in a fun and practical manner, using art or memory techniques where I can! I can change my approach depending on the age of the person being tutored, as well as their individual needs and requirements.
I myself find that colours, pictures and interesting work sheets can aid learning and revision, thus I will try to incorporate these where I can!

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:
My name is Joseph and I am a recent graduate in Engineering Mathematics from Bristol University. My passion is in mathematics and programming, but I also have an active interest in sciences as well. My A-levels were mathematics, further mathematics, physics and chemistry with grades A*, A*, A, A respectively. I am also applying for PhDs in machine learning for video games as well.
Whilst being academically capable, I also consider myself to be a good teacher too. I have ran lectures on video editing, workshops on improvisational acting and worked on plenty of group projects requiring a lot of communication to make sure all members understand what has been done and needs to be done.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience has been less personal than I would like. I have ran a lecture on the basics of video editing as well as a lot of workshops on improvisational acting. I would absolutely love to teach in a far more personal and engaging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very hands on in my approach and love to have discussions with a student. I think relating work to modern day examples is very important to understand the bigger picture of "Why am I learning this?". I actively encourage questions and always try my best to explain something as best as possible for each person tutor. I don't like to give homework, but (especially for tests) I would ask students to do a little work in their own time. Usually some kind of research on something up to date and relevant examples where the work we've done is applicable.

Personal Description:
I am a 23 year old Corporate Law student studying a Masters degree in the University of Leeds. I am half Greek half irish giving me the benefit of knowing Greek and English fluently. I grew up in Greece and attended a greek school and later graduated with a law Bachelor Degree from the university of huddersfield in west Yorkshire, United kingdom. I have worked in a day care before giving me the experience of helping children and taking care of them. I also enjoy learning and teaching new things.

Teaching Experience:

My experience with teaching is not as extensive as i would like. Nevertheless, i have worked in a day care which had ages from 3 to 10 years old and i was responsible of taking care of the children's needs. My mother is also an English teacher and i have learned many tricks and tips to teach children in an effective manner.

Tutoring Approach:

My personal approach to tutoring regarding Greek would be to let the child/adult know that i do not speak english very well (although i am fluent at it), therefore obliging the child/adult to try his/her best to speak in Greek in order to explain things. Lessons will be fun and homework will be given based on the child's/adult's available time and goals. As for Law tutoring will be based on conversation, cases and debates which will challenge both the student and tutor.
