I love helping people meet their goals!

I've been an English tutor for professionals in Milan, for children and adults in the UK for many years, have run creative writing groups online and in person and also worked with individuals with learning differences who need more than the traditional school setting can provide. I always seek to first understand a learner's needs and learning style, then tailor the sessions and homework to help them achieve their goals. I do believe learning should be both effective and enjoyable, and personally love seeing the "lightbulb" moments in a student's journey.

Tom M.

Cambridge and Imperial Science grad. 15 years teaching experience.

Key Stage 2: Since 2017 I have been working as a science and maths teacher in a specialist SEND school with primary school-aged children with a wide range of learning difficulties, including ADHD, Asperger's. dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. This has involved planning engaging and fun practical science experiments in line with the KS2 curriculum, and devising interactive maths lessons to help the students grasp basic numerical concepts . - Case study: "I", aged 9, with ADHD, dyscalculia, Asperger's. Science: "I" had a keen interest in the 'messy' side of Science, so our experiments were generally Chemistry-oriented, involving chemical reactions that invariably produced interesting substances, explosions or slime. He learned how to write up observations in his exercise book independently, and further explore the 'theory' behind our experiments. Maths: "I" struggled with counting and subitising, so we worked on counting forwards and backwards to 20, and subitising groups of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10, using Dienes cubes and other objects. Eventually he could manage these tasks consistently and moved onto creating given monetary values using coins. Common Entrance: I have prepared numerous students for entry at 13+ at both normal and scholarship level for secondary schools including Eton, Westminster, King's College Wimbledon, Dulwich, Radley, Wetherby Senior etc, all of whom have successfully gained entry to their chosen schools. I have particular experience in the Eton King's Scholarship paper, and have coached 6 boys for this exam, 3 of whom are now current King's/ Oppidan scholars at the school/ college. - Case study: "A", Eton King's Scholarship exam. "A" was naturally very bright, but severely let down by poor exam technique, including badly structured 'long-answers' and extremely messy (often illegible) writing which prevented him achieving the high scores of which he was capable. We discovered that his handwriting deteriorated as a result of perceived time pressure, leading to him rushing his answers to the longer questions and spewing out garbage. Despite this, he invariably failed to complete a paper under timed conditions. We therefore focussed heavily on techniques for answering and structuring long answers appropriately and concisely. By understanding the proper way to answer questions, and that he could say more with less, his answers become both more legible and higher-scoring, and he was also able to complete the papers in time. He went on to earn the scholarship. GCSEs: My GCSE students have been by far my biggest cohort over the years. I am equally at home with Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths at this level, and have already taken a number of students through the first round of the new 9-1 Maths specifications. I have also home-schooled at least 7 students in these subjects (from memory!), meaning I have often had to teach the entirety of the specifications from scratch, and set and mark regular homework in addition to providing exam preparation. - Case study: "R", home-schooled, IGCSE Maths and Sciences "R" had been excluded from his school at the start of year 10 for behavioural reasons. However, he had been offered a second chance to return to his school on condition that a) he provided regular proof that he was continuing to study for his GCSEs in the form of notes etc. and b) he could achieve at least an A in his IGCSE Maths, which he was due to take the following summer, a year early. I was contacted to work on maths and the three sciences with him. We met 3 times a week, allotting equal time for each subject. "R" had either mislaid or simply not made any notes for any of his subjects, so we had to start at the very beginning, ensuring not only that he had a comprehensive set of notes on each subject, but that he was keeping them sufficiently organised that he might send copies to his school. Come the end of the year, "R" achieved an A* in maths and was offered a place to return to his original school. A-Levels/ IB: My A-Level/ IB specialism is Biology. Most years I usually take on at least 1 or 2 students at this level. Biology is notorious for being one of the most 'content-dense' A-Level/ IB topics and there is a lot of factual learning involved, combined with some complex concepts. Invariably the topics that cause students the biggest headaches are the biochemical pathways of respiration and photosynthesis. I find the best way to help students learn these is to get them to focus on the bigger picture - what is the purpose of each step, and the process as a whole? What are the important outputs? How does it all fit into the grand scheme of things? Biology becomes a lot easier to digest when the interconnectedness of all life processes is appreciated. Everything is a cog in a big living machine. - Case study: "H", OCR A-Level Biology "H" was studying Biology alongside 2 non-science A-Levels. She required two As and a B to get into her preferred course at university, and whilst she felt As were attainable in her non-science A-levels, she was struggling to meet the B grade boundary in her internal Biology tests and exams, often dropping to a D. After reviewing her mock scripts, it became clear that, besides an insufficiently deep understanding of certain topics, "H" had shortcomings in her exam technique. We initially identified the topics in which she struggled (mainly 'pathway' questions) and focussed on breaking these down and learning them inside out and back to front. We then moved onto practicing related long-answer exam questions, and establishing a consistent approach to answering them. "H" eventually became confident in tackling these topics and questions unassisted. She gained her B grade and her place on her preferred course.

I can also help with medical school applications and studying for medical school exams. With 6 years and thousands of hours of tutoring experience I can guarantee a great service, tailored to each students needs.

Faizal M.

Aerospace engineering student with 4 years exp tutoring Maths and All Sciences!

I am currently in my second year of study at Queen Mary University in London. I have been tutoring for just over 3 and a half years and have helped students achieve success in their respected courses. I take pride in my student's work which motivates me to work even harder to ensure that my students are 100% prepared to take their exams. I mainly teach physics and maths because these are subjects that I am passionate about and ones that I use every single day in my chosen degree. I believe my understanding in the topic has grown significantly over the past few years, especially in university where I have had to come up with creative ways to tackle problems which have helped me understand the core concepts of the subjects even better. In addition, I also really enjoy watching and taking part in various sporting activities. My favourite being football and my favourite team is Liverpool (I assure you I will still help you with your studies if you support another team!). aside from that, I have an interest in aircraft, motor vehicles and motorsport. To conclude I am here to help you succeed and will do my best to ensure that you are ready to achieve your full potential in your examinations.

Gaia P.

Enthusiastic FL Tutor, Italian Mother Tongue, living in London for 4 years

Italian Mother Tongue, living in London for 4 years, I am an enthusiastic and devoted Foreign Language Tutor with excellent communication skills. Studying languages at the university helped me to gain the basis, travelling gave me the chance and the joy to be in contact with different cultures and here is how my passion for teaching and interpreting is born. It may seem so hard at the beginning, I still remember the first few weeks when I moved to London and I felt like I never have studied English before. Practice with a native speaker is essential to learn a foreign language... learn having fun is much easier than open a book and read an explanation! Focusing on your chosen subjects and learning needs, I will create personalised thematic lessons and intercultural activities to guide you in an immersive learning journey. Learning a language has never been so exciting!
