Trusted teacher: If your shy and awkward in social situations and are fed up with seeing other people having all the fun while you quietly watch from the sidelines. Then get in touch now. I'm a Personal Development Freak. When I left school I was a complete introvert with absolutely no social skills. I was small, weak, slow, shy, introverted, and I realised quite quickly that I needed to work twice as hard as everybody else to be as good as everybody else. so I worked bloody hard and put myself in the most uncomfortable situations to get the maximum benefit. I'm now a extrovert who has worked in many countries as an IT Consultant earning a very good living. I'm also a standup comedian and world traveler ( been around the world twice, I love travelling and meeting new people ) I can make friends with strangers very quickly. I'm always learning and developing where ever I go. I'm also an author published 1 book on amazon. I've done the Millionaire Mind Intensive and the Tony Robbins UPW.

Overview: I offer bespoke tutoring services to school pupils and individuals studying History, Politics, and English. With a background in History and experience in the teaching and media sectors, I provide a professional, insightful, and comprehensive service aimed at improving a client's understanding of a topic, their confidence within it, and targeting specific issues and skills as required. I also provide advice on university selection and applications, building on experience as an applicant myself and coach for successful applicants to highly selective universities (including Oxford, St Andrews, and UCL). Teaching methodology: I believe that the best way to teach is to communicate, work out the student's needs with them, and proceed from there. We live in a diverse world, and it's important to reflect that diversity in teaching. I believe in using a variety of sources to help teach, ranging from films, to books, to music clips. This is particularly important in the context of clients with LS needs, as a focus on one kind of source can impact the pupil's experience,and hinder their success. My lessons are based on a core Learning Objective, changing from lesson to lesson with the curriculum. Around that, there will be a series of case studies, examples, and anecdotes, with personalised support for exam answers if required. Half the battle with the humanities is ensuring that good ideas are communicated well- I seek to teach history and support the development of those communication skills to ensure that the pupil's ability is reflected.

The way seeds are arranged in fruits, the stripes on tigers and zebras, the hexagonal shapes of honeycombs and snowflakes, and every night, the stars appear to revolve in circular arcs centred on the Pole Star...in mathematics we seek generalities. We’re unimpressed by one triangle whose angles add up to 180 degrees, but we find it striking that the same is true of any triangle. When seeking generalities, it helps to have a lot of examples because then you can compare and contrast and try to extract the essence of whatever it is you are seeking. From “1 apple + 1 apple = 2 apples,” all the way to partial derivatives and multiple integrals, this course is designed for kids who are just encountering maths for the first time, for students studying A-levels, and for people who are thinking of going back to education and now find maths interesting. Mathematics is like an ocean, it can be scary and intimidating when the first wave hits you. But once you go in a little deeper and if you learn it properly, it can become peaceful. I would therefore like to help you develop your mathematical knowledge, in part through solving problems, evaluating outcomes, make and use connections between different parts of mathematics, model situations mathematically and express results using a range of formal mathematical representations. In studying maths, you will become a student of the universe and you will be able to peek into the deeper truths about reality.

When studying for an exam, it is essential not only to have a strong grasp of the content of the course, but also a knowledge of specific exam skills which allow you to attain the best possible marks in your subject. As a previous student of Scottish Higher and Advanced Higher exams (having attained "A" results in Advanced Higher History and Mathematics, and Higher History, Mathematics and Classical Studies), I have an in-depth knowledge of Scottish qualifications and the skills which must be demonstrated in order to succeed in the examination. As well as developing exam strategies, I will focus on areas of the course which a particular student is struggling with. Through this tailored approach, I can identify and resolve potential weaknesses or gaps in the student's knowledge, so their ability to succeed in their studies will be improved.

Trusted teacher: I have 4 years' experience as a teacher of English with a number of institutions, including the prestigious British Council in Egypt, Qatar and Mexico. I have also taught privately, and my students have had particular success with IELTS. Every lesson of mine includes some vocabulary work, because it is easy to get lazy and not record the new words we hear and understand, but active vocabulary study is essential for continual growth. I encourage learners to do as many written grammar exercises as they can outside of the classroom, so that classroom time can be dedicated to valuable conversation practice. I help learners use technology to improve their memory and learn more quickly.

This class aids undergraduate theology students in theory and material pertaining to their degree. I can help with the general and critical understanding of theory, as well as essay guidance and examination preparation. I received an M.A (Hons) in Theology from the University of Edinburgh and I chose to specialise particularly in Islamic Studies and politicised religion, though I am happy to assist in covering all aspects of theology.

I can tutor French to anyone who has an intermediate level in French as I will be explaining everything in my mothertongue. I can also try to explain by speaking English, but I am not bilingual yet so it would be better if you already have a level in French! I design each class according to YOUR personal needs. I generally focus on grammar, because to me it's one of the most important points when learning a new language. If you are really interested in the language itself, I can also teach you certain locutions that even native speakers use wrong! Teaching is one a of passions, so I will be glad to answer any questions from the meaning of a word to French expressions

Trusted teacher: While studying Social Anthropology and Politics, I would like to exploit my love for languages as well as my inner desire of bringing with me a piece of my cultural background. Teaching is a mutual exchange in which everyone can enlarge his points of view. My lessons are shaped according to needs and goals students want to meet. I think everyone has his own better way of learning and peculiar strengths and weaknesses, and it is important to know these ones in order to success. I adopt an innovative approach, which involves speaking, listening and studying with interactive media. My purpose is to work on the four parts of the language (Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading). I carefully select the material I use. I want my lessons to be stimulating and consider them to be a moment of mutual growth. I like my students to be enthusiastic of learning and always ready to be challenged. I have studied Latin language and literature, Italian, Ancient Greek, philosophy (etcetera) for 5 years and I have been teaching for three years. Thanks to private tutoring, I have developed a profound empathy (it is important to recognise needs and skills of students since I tailor my classes according to their attitudes and levels) as well as effective methods to overcome difficulties learners would eventually meet. I'm very dynamic so I do not want standard classes in which students simply receive notions, but a stimulating environment where everyone can learn by getting into italian culture as well as making comparisons and discussing about different topics.
