Experience / Qualifications

I have taught years 7 to 11 for the last two years, preparing students for their GCSEs as well as assisting with sixth form applications and personal statements. I have also worked as a private tutor specialising in 11+ and 13+ entrance examination preparation

I have extensive experience of differentiating my teaching to suit the needs and abilities of students and therefore aim to set clear and concise lesson objectives which are unique to each student I tutor. I am quick to identify weaknesses or misconceptions and aim to target these in an engaging and supportive way. I use encouragement to ensure that self-esteem is not compromised and create a safe space where mistakes are embraced as an essential part of the learning process.

I will often refer back to relevant exam specifications to pinpoint the essential information which allows more complex material to be later accessed, and apply a great deal of attention to effective exam technique. I will use different forms of assessment throughout lessons to measure understanding and progress towards meeting the learning objectives and will use this to inform future planning. I am also happy to set and mark homework should this be helpful for the student I am working with.

Alice
English, Maths and Science tutoring for students of all ages
I specialise in tutoring Maths, English and Science for school, including A-level and IB exams. My goal is to make these subjects, particularly Maths and Science, more exciting and accessible to my students. I am also available for introductory coding classes.

Alice
Maths, English and Science Tutoring From KS3 to GCSE
I am a highly experienced tutor supporting pupils from KS3 to A Level. My lessons are adapted to the individual student's needs and I provide homework and feedback. My experience teaching in both state and independent schools means I can cater for pupils of various backgrounds and abilities. I have a proven track record to achieve better pupil results and motivation for studying.

Sidra
Learn numbers, reading, and much more with Miss Sidra
I am a graduate in Economics, securing a first class honors, with straight As back in school. I have 6 years of tutoring experience, including teaching at schools too. My approach to teaching is more student centric, with the focus of individual needs of the student, not a general teaching style. Hence the practice work, strategy and ways are customised. There is no one size fits all. I do make sure however to be a friend of my students rather than a strict teacher, in a way that thye remember even after leaving. I love children since always and teaching fulfils me. I feel happy to see children learn, grow, and become more confident after bettering their skills. I hate to see students and give up simply due to lack of motivation from school.

Gus
English Prep Tutoring for Primary to Advanced Learners
Graduating with a First in English Literature in 2017 from Trinity College, Cambridge, I have tutored 250+ hours in the past two years, at all levels from 7+ to A-Level, and in exam boards from AQA to the UKISET for international students. I have taught both English and international students, and so am familiar with the varieties of difficulty that students can encounter and a variety of approaches for addressing them. I enjoy re-examining the elementals of the subject through tutoring. My students have all registered often substantial improvements and I continue to be asked back by different families if they feel they need a boost. I'm happy to provide references from students and parents. I have taught a variety of age ranges for school admissions from 7 to 13+. I have worked with students aiming for schools including Godolphin and Latymer, Harrodian, Kings Canterbury and Wycombe Abbey. The problems students have had have varied each time, from simple confidence and time-keeping issues, to more difficult ones like English being a second language or dyslexia. However every pupil I’ve taught so far has markedly improved and gained admission to at least one of the schools of their choice. I think my main strength as a tutor is an ability to explain concepts dealing with question structure and exam technique, and help the student to gently internalise them and gain their own confidence. I aim to strike a balance between engaging, personal commitment to making the student see and realise an organic interest in reading and writing, alongside the necessity of navigating exam requirements - but without making them seem restrictive or daunting. I really enjoy trying to individualise lessons for the student's specific needs and so will also try to stoke a personal interest and response to material studied, as I believe this makes for a much more enjoyable and painless process of learning. I am always keen to recommend or discuss specific books or authors of possible help or interest to students or parents. I aim to strike a balance between engaging, personal commitment to making the student see and realise an interest in reading and writing, alongside the necessity of navigating exam strictures and requirements - without making them seem restrictive or off-putting. I can also help with general essay-structuring/researching/writing skills in subjects not related to English. I can also help with Drama and Theatre-related studies.

Margherita
Italian, English (ESL), Spanish teaching and tutoring
Knowing a language nowadays has become extremely important. Our need to communicate and relate with the world has increased and so, in order to be able to feel confident with it, we need the right tools and methods. Have you ever been keen on one particular language and willing to learn it? Are you a student struggling to understand your teacher tasks and to get a good grade? Would you like to get better at English as a second language (speaking, writing, reading and listening)? I could be the answer to all these questions.

I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!
