I am passionate about education and want to help!
I chose my GCSE options in year 8 and started them in year 9. It was then I felt like I had to decide what career I want to go in. I knew I enjoyed teaching as I've done a lot mentoring; I also knew that Religious Studies was one of my most favourite subjects. Really, I loved (still do) cooking the most so a career in catering was also something I wanted but then I decided that from my experience it's not the most stable career and I am an academic. My parents suggested I go into law so I focussed on that. I got 18 A* - Cs for GCSE. I got a scholarship into Oxford for a pre-degree law course which I did along side my A-levels. For AS I did German, Philosophy and Ethics, History and English language and literature. The latter 2 subjects I did not do enjoy as much so I dropped them in A2 and picked up a full A-level in IT. I got a reduced offer to do law at Oxford but I decided I didn't want to do that anymore nor be in that environment again. I chose to do philosophy and R.S. instead which allowed me to dabble with other topics such as psychology, sociology, and government and politics. I have worked at schools as pupil assistant, mentor and teacher. I am now a manager at a tuition centre. (And I've been tutoring for over 8 years now). Sorry for the essay!View Profile
Hard-working tutor and undergraduate at The University of Exeter
I am a qualified teacher who brings to each lesson not only my love of the language but also fun facts and key cultural insights gleaned from having lived in both francophone and hispanic speaking countries. We can learn at your rhythm and using whichever method you prefer. You can draw your answers or say them out loud, this is just a way of you getting the most vocabulary you need in order to succeed for your end of year exams! You lead the session, if you would like to watch a video instead of listen to a recording or if you would rather do an hour of grammar, the choice is in your hands! If you are more after just conversation to practise key phrases when you go on holiday abroad this summer or if you are trying to get the attention of a special person then that is also within my remit and I will be happy to be of assistance.View Profile

Accomplished tutor and undergraduate at Brunel University London
I am An experienced CEO and Social Entrepreneur. For me It is very important to find out what teaching and learning method is most suited to the student. The lessons have to be engaging enough to prevent the student from losing interest. Most importantly it’s about finding the best way to learn allowing the student to reach their full potential.View Profile

Hi there! I am a primary school teacher and I recently completed my PGCE. I have 7 years of experience in the teaching field as well as tutoring. I have extensive knowledge of the primary curriculum. I have been known as helping and succeeding in achieving goals. I believe organisation and creating mini goals is key in learning and can provide this support to my students throughout their learning through a step by step guide. Furthermore, to provide effective learning for pupils, I ensure that the lessons are planned well with a break down of what is required in the input as well as what activities/worksheets are required. I am also familiar with various scheme of works used in schools and able to adapt to these. In order to make pupil learning more effective, I also use a ‘reflective moment’ where students assess their own learning as this enables them to understand what they have learnt, what they need to improve on and what methods/steps they need to take in order to achieve their goal. In addition, providing pupils with negative and positive reinforcement also helps with achieving their goals as this acts as a motivational tool for their learning.View Profile
Enthusiastic and helpful Politics, History, psychology and English Tutor!
Experienced, friendly tutor and MA in International Political Economy from King`s College. I have hundreds of hours of tutoring experience from GCSE to Undergraduate level. I am a friendly and relaxed tutor who employs a methodical and tactical approach. I believe that my approach enables me to relate to my students and helps them to exceed their expectations when it comes to exams. During university I was the Head Learning Coordinator for the entry to university programme, Springboard. Here I mentored and guided a cohort of 30 pupils through their GCSE exam preparations. Since graduating in 2014 I have built up thousands of hours of tutoring experience both through face to face and online tuition. 7 plus and 11 plus: I have experience of assisting students with all elements of these admissions tests (English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning). I have successfully assisted students in gaining entrance to the following schools as of 2017: Haberdasher Aske’s St.Michael`s Grammar (Finchley) GCSE and A Level: I have worked with students from many Independent Schools as well as both Selective and Non Selective State Schools. Each of my students has achieved top grades with none gaining lower than a B at A Level and the vast majority outperforming all predictions. I have tutored my subjects for all main exam boards including WJEC and CIE at GCSE and OCR, AQA, WJEC and Edexcel at A Level. UCAS, Interview Prep: I have experience helping students work on their personalised statements as part of the UCAS process as well as successfully preparing them for University Interviews and Oxbridge Entrance Tests. My students have gained admission to the following Universities as of 2014: Oxford St Andrews Durham UCL Kings College London Queen Mary London School of Economics Edinburgh Loughborough Manchester Southampton Nottingham Bath Exeter University Students/Adult Learners: I have assisted students at university with essay refinement and dissertation preparation in a number of fields with recent topics including African Politics, Knowledge-based economies, BRICS and other emerging markets and military interventions. With Adult Learners I am happy to work through any topic area covered by my range of experience, and this can be tailored around the required intensity of academic rigour needed for the students personal interests/study. I am experienced working with students on the Autism spectrum and with students who have dyslexia and dyspraxia. My approach to tutoring is adapted to suit the needs and requirements of the individual. I will set my students homework between sessions, setting manageable homework, with adequate time for completion. I often ensure that I have a thorough undertanding of students work load, and will work with them to ensure that their time is being managed effectively. With younger students it is often the case of focusing in on elements of the entrance exams they are weaker with as many students score inconsistently across the four disciplines. Ideally tutoring should form part of a well-rounded curriculum which incorporates many elements such as sports/recreational activities, museum trips, reading around the subject all of which I will actively encourage during the lessons. I often like to give an indication of how long students would need tuition for. This is to ensure that dependancy on the tutor is discouraged and students are empowered to eventually take charge of their own learning. Tutoring sessions are varied and include learning, note taking, revision, discussion, exam technique and test questions. These are tailored to the individual student. I often get my older students to write responses and then show them ways in which the question could be answered or interpreted differently. This allows for increased dexterity therefore building confidence both for class work and examinations. With younger students lots of practice tests and mock questions form the main basis of enhancing their performance. Cambridge offer holder, I always push my students to reach the full height of their potential and it is this continual focus on improving which leads to my students outperforming their expectations and achieving consistently high top results. Please note that I am willing to travel to North, North West and West LondonView Profile
Experienced UCAS advisor and A Level tutor
A dedicated, experienced and creative tutor. I'm currently an HR prifessional with a background in mainstream education and social enterprises. I completed a BSc in Politics and Philosophy at the London School of Economics. Tutoring Experience: I've been tutoring GCSE and A levels in Maths and Government and Politics respectively since 2008 one to one. Having worked as a Graduate Achievement Coach at Bethnal Green Academy for two years, I helped students prepare for GCSE maths examinations,Sixth Form students apply to university and coach young people to make informed decisions about their future. In 2014/15 I also tutored two International Relations undergraduate students from Queen Mary University (University of London) My previous tutee from First Tutors took AS Religious Studies as an additional subject outside of her school curriculum. She achieved an A grade having only studied with me for 2 hours a week over 4-5 months. My students have consistently performed in their examinations and benefited overall academically from my interaction with them. Tutoring Approach: I'm also experienced in helping my students develop key study skills and unlock their potential by focusing on also developing their motivation and key skills such as time management and effective planning. I believe that the best way to develop a student's academic skills is to empower them rather then make them dependent on tuition, thus I strive to help them help themselves, by teaching them key skills that will be useful throughout their academic career as well as providing support in the desired subject area.View Profile
Hard-working tutor and undergraduate at University of Oxford
I bring three tenants to my tutoring: proficiency, engagement, and dedication. Firstly, students are confident that I know every bit of the material, which is really important in giving them the confidence to ask questions and understand new ideas. Secondly, I constantly engage with my students. I ask them questions, present ideas in relevant examples, and encourage them to problem-solve in detail. Thirdly, I am committed to seeing tangible improvement from my students. That means I'll spend time and patience in communicating critical concepts, whether that means nailing down ideas within lessons, scouting out useful reading, or running overtime, to make sure my students fully learn. Current PPE undergraduate at the University of Oxford. Can give lessons to anyone from GCSE to first-year undergraduate standard, including A-Level and IB. Enjoy teaching any students willing to learn, really good at helping students to 'come out of their shell', that is those that are a bit shy or inexperienced with problem-solving - getting them to analyse and think critically. Format is similar to a tutorial format that one would experience at university.View Profile
