Teaching Experience Maxim has tutored since graduating from Oxford in 2019. He has delivered over 1000 hours of tutoring, a testament to his commitment and dedication. In 2022, one of Maxim's students scored an A* in A-Level Politics, despite the Covid-19 pandemic. His students regularly gain top grades in A-levels and coursework. In 2021, both long-term Politics students got their desired grades and went to their dream universities. Maxim has experience across the Humanities, including various A-Level Politics syllabi and exam boards. The Oxbridge tutorial system (going through essays forensically and discussing them in depth) is central to Maxim's tutoring. These were, in his own words, "the best years of my life, with a learning experience I'm keen to share." Testimonials “The amount of history and your ability to create a timeline in order to help me learn the syllabus, although (it) may seem like common sense, makes the course much easier to understand thanks to you.” Andreas (A-Level Politics student) “Maxim tutored our son regularly throughout his A level Politics course. He was awarded an A* in his exam. Maxim has extensive background knowledge about the subject, exam technique and offers patience and persistence. Our son said he misses the sessions now the exams are over, which is a real endorsement. I would thoroughly recommend Maxim.” Jane (parent of former Politics student) Bio Maxim is a Masters student in London, studying Broadcast Journalism. Before that, he spent two years working exclusively as a freelance History and Politics tutor. He spent three years at Trinity College, Oxford reading History and Politics. At Oxford, Maxim focused on British and international politics, achieving high marks in International Relations and US Politics. While a student, Maxim also appeared on University Challenge and was twice an elected member of the Oxford Union's governing body. Maxim got three A grades at A-Level, notching up 100% in UK Politics with additional success in US Politics. Maxim received offers from LSE and Warwick along with Oxford.

Hello, I'm Hannah! I am an English Tutor and CELTA-Qualified EFL Teacher with 5 years’ experience. Alongside, my own client base, I am also employed as an Online ESL teacher with an internationally renowned company “in China”. I work with all ages, levels, nationalities and needs. Prior to being a full-time teacher, I worked in one of the UK’s leading EFL schools as a Language Assistant. I have a BA in English Literature with Creative Writing, as well as an MA in Literature from the University of York. I also speak: Spanish - B2, French - A2 and Romanian - A1. EXAMPLES OF WHAT I TEACH: - Essay Writing Skills and Proofreading Feedback - EFL (including IELTS, Cambridge Exams) - KS2, 3 and 4 English Language and Literature - Grammar Practice - Creative Writing and Editing Techniques MY PROMISE: - Teach the content required in preparation for the relevant exams, curriculum and/or identified needs - Ensure examination questions are practised and ensure understanding of the mark scheme specifications - Provide free consultations reflecting on the progress of the student at their request - Be diligent on providing excellent tutelage MY APPROACH: It’s all about you! You are the director of your tuition. While following the curriculum/exam board is paramount, getting where you want to be starts by meeting you where you are. I strongly encourage students to be self-reflective and think about what areas they find most challenging. This is helpful in determining how to structure the exam and lesson content in a direction that is going to challenge and strengthen the target areas. Most of all, I want my students to thrive and leave class knowing or feeling confident about something new. My learning style is all about you. You should be the director of your education and needs. While following the curriculum is paramount, my philosophy is about meeting my students where they are at academically and working towards where they would like to be. From flashcards to worksheets, I create bespoke resources that are tailor-made to your lessons. My tuition is student-driven; we build a plan together based on your learning style and expectations. Your first lesson will be a needs analysis where we discuss the direction of your tuition and build rapport for an effective learning environment. Finally, I'm a good teacher because I am an enthusiastic learner, I am an avid reader and currently learning two languages myself - French and Spanish, so I understand what's like being a language student too. I care about my students and I am invested in their growth as students and confident learners. Most importantly, I love what I do, so if you want enthusiastic teaching, engaging and professional lessons, let's get started today!

I have been working with young people for over 4 years now and have gained a well rounded portfolio of experience. I have been grateful to receive wonderful feedback from students, parents and colleagues! I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol with a BSc in psychology & philosophy. I worked at a TEFL Language school where I designed a cultural programme for students and was the chief point of contact as a mentor. Additionally, I worked in the SEN department at a London secondary school supporting students with all Key Stages including A Level & IB. I have worked with students who have aspergers, autism, ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety, sight-impairment and physical disability’s. A few examples of previous tutoring jobs: - Mentored a teenager over an 8 month period. - Tutored full time for the past 3 years as a subject generalist with an emphasis on the arts and humanities subjects. I have taught the core KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5 syllabuses. Covering all subjects such as art, philosophy, psychology, history, english literature & language, maths, chemistry, biology, physics. I have also done A level and IB tuition for subjects such as history, philosophy, english, art and psychology. - I have worked full time as a home school tutor teaching the core subjects, arts & humanities for ages 5, 7, 9, 11 & 14. - I homeschooled two brothers from a high profile family and prepared them for the English curriculum (from the American system). I taught english literature & language , R.E, art, politics and current affairs, textiles and took them on educational excursions. They also had to pass school entrance exams 11+, 13+, both successfully. - I homeschooled two sisters ages 7 & 9 and taught all the core subjects as well the arts and humanities. I prepared the youngest for her 7 + exams which she successfully passed. My students have gone on to excel in many subjects but especially creative writing and critical thinking. One student of mine was refusing to write at his previous school but after a year of working together he gained entrance to a top London school and is now currently the top of his class for English and is particularly confident with his creative writing. Another student of mine has gone on to win poetry competitions. My teaching style is engaging, innovative and supportive. I try to instill confidence and academic curiosity in my students, as I believe this is equally important to achieving top marks. * Fun fact about me: I paint professionally and pursue writing when I’m not tutoring. I am now keen to take on more students and would love the opportunity to work with you! Once we have been in touch and established something my response time will be very rapid. However because I am very busy it might initially take a little longer to respond so I'm sorry for that! Should be worth the wait though.

Hi! My name is Mika, and I am a professional tutor & education consultant. I am a graduate of Oxford University & the Sorbonne University in French and Philosophy with Highly Commended Awards won in the Oriel College Lloyd Davies Philosophy Prize and the Oxford University French Film Competition. I worked as supplementary tutor for the Ethics and Modernist Literature classes at the Exeter College (Oxford) International Summer School 2022. I worked as a tutor specialising in the Oxbridge undergraduate admissions process, and successfully tutored students through the admissions process for Oriental Studies (Mandarin), MFL (French and Spanish), and English from 2019 - 2021. From 2020 - 2022, I worked as an EFL tutor for international students aged 4-10. I provided tutoring to GCSE French &amp; Spanish students as an A level student from 2016 - 2018, and worked as a Teaching Assistant on a six-month part-time placement in 2017. I was also trained as a Peer Supporter for the Exeter College, Oxford undergraduate community and fulfilled the role from 2019 - 2021. I am keenly aware of the fact that each individual student has different educational needs in order to thrive academically, and I am committed to creating an encouraging and engaging environment for them to do so. I have a 'no stupid questions' policy - young people in education should feel encouraged to experiment and find their strengths and weaknesses without feeling limited, which in turn opens the door to significant improvement in their work. I encourage students to develop an effective and healthy ability to self-evaluate, and to develop the tools to improve. I am also sensitive to the effects of neurodivergence and mental health issues on students’ educational needs, and I am very happy to tailor my tutoring to this to ensure that they get the most out of their tutoring.

What is the difference between ADD/ADHD?

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is categorised by two behaviours: attention deficit (lack of attention) and hyperactivity (lack of self-control). Most children are diagnosed with ADHD between the ages of 7 and 13. ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) describes the behaviour of those with lack of attention, concentration and focus. The main difference between ADD/ADHD is that there are no signs of hyperactivity or restlessness in people with ADD.

How to help a child with ADHD in school?

Children and students with ADHD might need more educational support. Hiring an online tutor can give your child 1:1 assistance to ensure they understand tricky topics and meet their grades. Our private tutors have a wealth of experience in teaching children with ADHD. They create personalised plans that best suit how to help your child.

How to tutor online

Students with ADHD may find learning in a classroom more distracting. That's why the online learning environment can be more intuitive and beneficial. If you're wondering how to tutor online, we recommend finding the right platform and resources. Our e-learning platform gives you feedback and allows you to record sessions. This means that you can monitor your progress across different subjects over time. This makes education more interactive and enjoyable than at school.

Looking for effective ADHD teaching strategies?

ADHD and ADD are neurodevelopmental disorders affecting 2% of the population.  Unfortunately, this disorder can cause learning difficulties and behavioural problems,  which can lead to lower grades, poor school performance and sometimes expulsion. This is due to the lack of effective ADHD teaching strategies failing the education system. 

 

Teaching students with ADHD is difficult as school's are strained for resources. With one teacher per 30 pupils, it's virtually impossible to give every individual the support they deserve — much less for students with learning difficulties. There is a lot of stigma around ADHD and how this affects other kids in classrooms. This makes it harder for students with learning difficulties to meet their grades and expectations.

 

At Tutor House, we understand how difficult it can be to find effective learning support. That's why our private tutors are qualified and hand-picked with the best ADHD teaching strategies.  If you're looking for 1:1 assistance to help boost your child's confidence and grades at school — look no further! 

 

Finding a private tutor with the necessary skills and experience to support students with ADHD is our speciality. We take away the hard part and match you with your perfect tutor. Whether you need to find someone who creates fun activities for children with ADHD, or just need an extra boost to master GCSE and A-Level exams, you're in the right place. 

 

We have a tutor for everyone and anyone, from primary to degree-level education. So call today and book your Free Online Trial with an expert. Give yourself the opportunity to thrive!

Estelle H

Common Entrance

Estelle has managed to help with the academic improvement of Cameron’s English skills with excellent success in his 11+. Her calm attitude and straight forward approach allows children to fully understand the subject in an easy manner with an organised structure to her teaching methods. She’s also trained in how to appropriately converse with SEN children — a skill which I initially struggled to find in my search for the right tutor.

Matthew H

Maths

My family lives overseas. My son has applied to a school in the UK for his GCSE education. We found Matthew via Tutor House and had several 2 hours sessions with him over a month to prepare for the entrance exams. Matthew was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was well prepared and patient. We just learned today that my son passed the entrance test 'with high grades'. We believe Matthew was a big help.
