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
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.

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.

Emilija

I specialise in English and Latvian language tutoring. Can help with all levels of language training, from beginners to professional/academic writing. Can teach students new skills on how to improve their conversational English and Latvian, grammar, general vocabulary, or provide more strucural assistance. Also, I offer proof-reading services for those looking for someone to read over their work. My goal is to keep students motivated, as I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language. I will keep my students challenged and excited for their classes, and not feel overwhelmed by their study.

Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced ( A1 / A2 / A3 / B1 / B2 / B3 / C1 / C2 )
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. Together we would go through all the English aspects that you should be aware of and implicate the knowlege aquired in real intresting topics and activities. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .

Ayan
Biology teacher from primary level to understate level
Hello, I am an enthusiastic and driven tutor who specialises in biology and genetics from secondary education all the way to undergraduate level. I graduated last year with a first-class Biology degree from one of the UK's top universities. I also received full marks in my Biology A-Level. My teaching style is direct, detail-orientated and tailored to your specific requirements. I have a wealth of previous tutoring experience. I have studied learning and development in detail, which puts me in an excellent position to give learning strategies, exam preparation and motivation advice. During my own time at university, I have learned that knowledge is no use without correct application. As such, I encourage all my students to bring out their full potential through their exam technique and planning skills.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Oumar
Maths Complete Supervision: Courses and Exercises Evaluations, all levels
Mathematics, a discipline that requires a lot of skill and rigor from an early age, is our focal point par excellence for forging scientists. Likewise the physical sciences which are the applications of the first gray of the sciences. I am an experienced Mathematics teacher in middle and secondary education with more than 10 years of experience. I have taken up several challenges with students losing their bearings or lacking self-confidence with distance school supervision. Teaching science is a profession of passion, a burden that is very unpassionate to us. I am very available and very attached to the smiles of a student and his parents filled with joy by satisfaction. At your disposal to take up major challenges. Thank you
