Enthusiastic and fun Oxbridge educated tutor, eager to help you enjoy learning.

Hello! Do you or your children need help with Law? English? Maths? Careers advice? Oxbridge Applications? 11+ entrance? I believe passionately that learning should be fun. I have had a mixture of educational experiences including being homeschooled, educated in the private and public sector so have a fairly good experience of the education system! I draw particular focus on learning in a visual and fun way using many mediums such as video, games, audio, art and more and believe that learning should never be dull or boring (or you are doing something wrong!) LAW  Are you studying Law GCSE or A-Level or doing an undergraduate degree and need some extra tuition?  Or would you like some guidance on Oxbridge applications to the Law tripos? Do you need help completing your personal statement? Do you need help reading and summarising journal articles? Want a career as a barrister or solicitor and are not sure how to go about it? Then I can help! I read Law at University of Cambridge and am now at City University in which last year I won the university mooting competition. I have been president of two National Law societies and am very passionate about the subject. I am training for the bar at the moment and know a lot about the industry. So I'd be more than happy to help give you some lessons, enhance your knowledge and help with suggested reading material, brushing up your CV, and pass on all my little top tips.  CREATIVE WRITING; ENGLISH LANGUAGE; ENGLISH EARLY YEARS, GCSE & A-LEVEL; PROOF-READING, AUDIO TYPING  I studied for my English GCSE when I was 9 years old because it was my favourite subject and I have a very vivid imagination!  If English isn't your first language and you would like someone to help you with English - I can help with conversation, reading, and grammar.  If you need someone simply to read over and improve your assignments, let me help!  11+, ENGLISH, MATHS, VERBAL & NON-VERBAL REASONING & INTERVIEWS  I have endured that process of doing 11+ and managed to be successfully admitted to many public schools. I am happy to help give you any extra help you might need.  I have been DRB checked to work with little ones (I am a brownie guide leader)  I am based in Cambridge, fairly flexible with time and happy to converse via email, Skype, telephone, face-to-face lessons, or whichever medium works for you.

Teaching has always been my greatest passion. I have done so for 25 years.

I have dedicated my teaching career to ensuring that all students achieve and progress while gaining a love or at very least seeing the benefits of acquiring new knowledge. Coaching, delivery of training as well as the recognition that the student is at the centre of everything that we do while maintaining a robust self-evaluation of teaching and learning all played a significant part in ensuring that the progress of all students have been consistently outstanding over the years. As a teacher of English Language and English Literature, I devise and deliver lessons for national qualifications, preparing students and contributing significantly to enabling continually outstanding teaching and learning practice. In the last 3 years, I have consistently attained an average 94% grades 9- 4 for students. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught classes across a wide ability range and have been formally commended for the fact that my lessons are well-planned and appropriate to individual learning styles of each group. I adapt a “person-centred” approach to teaching, facilitating rages of learning styles in a calm working environment. As an experienced teacher, tutor and formerly a Deputy Curriculum Leader of English, my strengths and experience include: • Successfully mentored and coached NQTs/ Teach First teachers/ Graduate Teacher Trainees/ Overseas Trained Teachers. This involved creating a sense of trust to ensure that a personalised action plan for improvement is accurate and fit for purpose. It is also important to ensure that I was seen as approachable and willing to model good teaching and learning strategies in a variety of contexts. • Keeping abreast of the latest developments in Education to inform planning and decision making. This is particularly relevant to the current situation of change regarding “life after levels” and GCSE reforms to mention a few. Bearing this in mind, I have ensured that I can be resilient in being able to adapt and respond positively to change while ensuring that my students’ learning is not negatively influenced. • Effective use of Data analysis/ Interventions (marginal gains) for maximum impact. This involved providing training for all how to use data effectively to ensure good progress and attainment within my department. • Supported other KS3 leaders within and outside, modelled the design of an effective Department Handbook, Current Standards analysis and reports on Exams Analysis. • Master Classes and in service training for targeted groups of students and staff in a range of areas. • Modelled good practice (giving lesson feedback under the new framework/ effective coaching/ effective questioning/ Team Teaching). • Being accountable and holding staff in the department to account for under-achievement of students. • Monitor and support the overall progress and development of students within the area of responsibility. • Monitor student attendance together with their progress and performance in relation to targets set for each individual ensuring that follow-up procedures are adhered to and that appropriate action is taken where necessary.

Skilled maths and primary school teacher

Hello, I am currently a student at the University of Gloucestershire studying Primary Education (Maths Specialism) and will be qualified next year. I completed my A-Levels in 2018 with straight As in Maths, Psychology and Biology and completed my GCSEs in 2016 with 3 A*s (including Maths) and 9 As. I have been tutoring for over three years now and all my students have passed their GCSE maths exam. I once improved a student's grade from a 1 to a 4 in one year. I aim to make all lessons fun and engaging as I believe students will learn more if they're motivated and enjoying themselves. I create my own worksheets so I am confident that all my resources are high-quality and contain all the possible questions that could be asked in the exam. My worksheets ask more questions on areas that students frequently get stuck at and it breaks harder topics into smaller, more manageable steps for the students to reduce their cognitive load so they may find learning easier and they can remember the learning long-term. Depending on the progress/current attainment of the student, I sometimes create a personalised long term lesson plan alongside the student so they understand where they should be in their studies and keeps them motivated to learn and not fall behind my expectations of them. This gets altered after past paper practice and any feedback from tests from the class teacher. Each week I assign a past paper (or several questions from a past paper) so students gain the ability to understand what the question is asking and this allows them to practice several areas so they are not forgotten. This also enables me to see their progress and adapt future lessons accordingly. I mark these papers (however I do offer the chance for student to mark these to offer them insight into what examiners looks for) and go through them in detail with the student in the next lesson to further their learning. Additionally, it enables the student and myself to track their progress. Please note I only have online availability currently. Look forward to hearing from you soon, Heather

Oxford grad student and highly resourceful tutor with 12 years of experience.

I’m a sought-after tutor with twelve years of teaching and tutoring experience in Canada, the United Kingdom, Jamaica, Czech Republic, Bahrain, and Ghana. I taught at a private school in Bahrain for six years, and for four of those years I was an IBDP Literature/IBDP Language and Literature teacher whose students not only achieved some of the best results in the school, but achieved results that often exceeded IB world averages. With my experience as an IB teacher, tutor, and examiner, I’m highly attuned to the requirements and expectations of the IB programme; I have a well-rounded understanding from the vantage points of teacher and assessor. I’m in possession of excellent IB materials, resources, and exemplars. Many students have earned 6s and 7s under my tutelage. I can transfer this knowledge and expertise to A-level and GCSE tutoring as well. I’m familiar with 11+ entrance exams and have extensive experience preparing students of all ages for different standardised tests. I instil lifelong study skills in my students. As a certified SAT Associate Supervisor who has administered and invigilated over ten sessions, I have expert knowledge on SAT preparedness, content, time management, and essay writing. I've helped numerous students with their UCAS applications, university interview preparation, and personal statements. For those who are English language learners, I have considerable experience teaching English as a second/foreign language. I’ve prepared students for the IELTS and I’ve helped numerous students in Canada and Czech Republic (of varying levels of English proficiency) with conversational English, grammar instruction, and speaking/listening/writing/reading activities. I’m committed to my pupils’ academic excellence by encouraging their intellectual curiosity. My teaching style fosters independent inquiry, and I pride myself on my passionate, engaging, student-led lessons that empower pupils to take ownership of their learning. I encourage my students to analyse and think critically, and my ultimate goal is to provide students with the analytical tools to continue their studies independently with confidence and conviction.

Hardworking Cambridge student happy to help with Psychology, French and 11+

I am hardworking student who has just completed my first year at Cambridge University, where I study Psychological Behavioural Sciences. At school I studied French, History and Psychology A Level. I have always enjoyed languages and had an aptitude for them, having studied both French and Spanish through GCSE and the first year of A Levels. I have been both a French and Spanish mentor at my school where I have helped younger students to overcome issues they couldn't talk through in class. My passion for psychology began when I was able to pick it up at A Level, I ran a Psychology Club in my school, through which I was able to teach younger students interesting topics and engage in controversial debates. My passion grew through super curricular reading and volunteering that helped me to secure my offer at the University of Cambridge. After being scared and worried sick about exams throughout my whole school career I believe I finally cracked it in Year 13 and I would love to be able to reassure students and allow them to go into their exams feeling confident, and leaving knowing that they've done their best. My lessons will be tailored solely around the needs of the pupil and what they feel their main issue/struggle is, so please just let me know! I did Cambridge IGCSE French and Spanish, and AQA A Level French where I studied Tartuffe and Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles for my written exam. For A Level Psychology, I studied AQA, with my Year 2 options being: Cognition and Development, Schizophrenia and Forensic Psychology.
