As a tutor, I believe in working on a personalised course of study working through use of past exam papers and interview questions, teaching students to answer the questions well and grow in confidence. As such, I have successfully coached children through 7+, 11+ and 13+ examinations including up to scholarship level. My past students have gained entry to the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Eton College, St James School Ashford, Halliford School, Shepperton, St Catherine’s School, Bramley and St George’s College, Weybridge. I am now a specialist one to one tutor working with students in preparation for Independent School Entrance examinations at 7+, 11+,13+ along with the 11+ Examinations for Grammar Schools. For the 7+, I have prepared students for both the Mathematics and English examinations. At 11 + I have prepared children for the Mathematics, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests. At 13 + Common Entrance I help students to prepare for the English Writing and Reading Comprehension Examinations. I have also supported children across the Primary Curriculum, developing their understanding and skill set in order to boost their confidence and prepare them for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATS in Mathematics and English at the end of Primary School. I am an empathetic and enthusiastic tutor who always strives to help my tutees become the best that they can be!

Hi! I'm Collette and I've been teaching ever since the age of 16, when I began teaching music lessons to local children, during my A levels, as my school music teacher recommended me to them. I think what my pupils and students enjoy most about my lessons is how much they are treated as individuals; I tailor my teaching to suit the personality and strengths of the learner. I believe everyone has different strengths - my job is to find out what these are, and use them to build the learner's confidence and enthusiasm for whatever they are trying to achieve. Parents repeatedly report that their child's general wellbeing and confidence is hugely benefitted by my approach to their lessons. I achieved all grades up to and including Grade 8 Distinction piano then ABRSM Advanced Certificate piano, plus Grade 8 Merit classical guitar (and many Distinctions in previous grades) as a child. After school, I studied in London, graduating from King's College, London with a BMus (Hons) Music Degree (with piano lessons at Royal Academy of Music, London) and then a Primary PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate of Education teaching qualification) from the Institute of Education, London (part of University College London). I've taught in a wide variety of capacities to children and adults, throughout my career, both face-to-face and, over the last few years, online, including: mainstream primary, nursery and pre school teaching; specialist music classroom teaching; peripatetic music lessons; home-based music lessons (piano, classical guitar, theory, beginner singing) and school tutoring; TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teaching to homestay and online students. Please contact me if you would like further information. I am extremely adaptable in my one-to-one/small group teaching, and will always guide students in an encouraging and kind manner. As a mum to an 18 year old, I also know what parents and children need from their tutor. So, whether you are 4 or 94, I will be happy to help you achieve your potential. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Hi! I am Eleni, a passionate linguist expert. I have been teaching Modern Foreign Languages for more than 20 years. More specifically, I teach German, French, English (EFL), Italian and Greek in any language level. I can also teach Spanish to GCSE level and I speak some Japanese too. I am a qualified UK school teacher with QTS and PGCE and I am also a CIOL Member and a Chartered Linguist. What's more, I studied Law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and I have the highest diplomas (C2) in all the languages I teach. I have lived and worked all around Europe and I am currently based in Thessaloniki. You can find out more about my education by checking out my profile. What is also important to know is that languages are my greatest passion and I've been studying them for all my life. I've been a teacher for more than 20 years and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to impart my knowledge to my students in a fun, interesting and engaging way that is always adapted to the personal needs of every student. I have also huge experience in exam preparation. I have prepared hundreds of students for their language exams and I can guarantee your success in your A-Level or GCSE exams and I should also mention that many of my students are now studying at some of the top Universities of the UK, Cambridge and Oxford just to mention two examples. I can also prepare you for international language exams in any language level proficiency (A1 - C2) for any of the official providers (e.g. Goethe Institute for German). When I do not teach I... teach voluntarily! :-) I organise classes for children that cannot afford it and I have also taught to an orphanage. I try to participate to as many voluntary actions as I can, especially for homeless people. I love nature, the countryside, animals, I try to cultivate my own tomatoes and I would love to learn horse riding. I urgently need some time and a tutor for the latter! Either you are a student or an adult, either you want to prepare yourself for exams or you would like to learn a language that will help you professionally or just for fun, I would love to meet you and start our language journey together. So, take the first step and reach out to me. I promise you, it will be the first step of many!

Hi there! I'm Ilinca, and I come from a family of teachers. I have learned the essential skills one must hold to make lessons interactive, enjoyable and informative. I aim to encourage students and help them build their confidence while improving their current skills. My teaching method varies on each individual’s preference and goals. For adults, classes are more structured and based on particular aims and goals. When working with children, I often use visual material to boost engagement. Before moving to Scotland for my degree, I attended an international school in Germany, where I lived for 11 years. I graduated as valedictorian in Criminology and Sociology, finishing with a 1st-degree classification. I also hold a B2 DELE certification, having studied Spanish for over 9 years. I am TEFL certified, passing the examinations with a 95%. I have experience teaching English, Spanish and German to both children and adults. In September, I will begin my professional teaching qualification in Modern Foreign Languages for secondary school students in England.

I recently graduated from Cambridge with a 2:1 in Natural Sciences and would love to share my passion for learning with others by supporting students to achieve their full potential. During my time as a UCAS tutor, I was able to clearly explain advanced scientific concepts by adjusting my teaching methods to suit the unique learning style of each student and applied my TEFL qualification to support English second language students, all of whom went on to receive offers from Russell Group Universities. Whilst tutoring an 11-year-old boy in Maths, he raised his average grade from a C to an A. Having been elected as the Welfare Officer for the Cambridge University Water Polo Team, I emphasise the importance of mental health and aim to promote the emotional wellbeing of all my students. My pet Labrador Goldie may also make occasional drop-ins in the background of tutoring sessions to provide a little well-needed dopamine. :)

I have been a teacher of both English Language and Literature for the past 5 years. I am proud to have been a help to a number of students who have gone on to successfully sit for their GCSEs. I am particularly experienced with the AQA GCSE exam format, but I am qualified to teach all exam boards. I am currently reading for my PhD at the University of York, where I am studying English romantic literature, with a particular focus on the study of Keats. I completed my PGCE at the University of Nottingham. However, I did my BA at the University of Malta as that is where I grew up before moving to the UK a few years ago. I like to personalise my teaching to suit the needs of my students and will do all I can to ensure that I am clear and well understood. I prefer a more informal, conversational approach to teaching where possible and, while I cannot guarantee success, I can promise to do my very best to help boost confidence, ability and enjoyment in both English Language and Literature.

I'm currently a PhD student in Psychology at the University of Birmingham and have previously studied at the University of Cambridge where I completed a research-based Masters degree in Psychology. I have over 6 years experience in tutoring pupils and university students in Psychology (including statistics and research methods), German (my native language), and Spanish (bilingual proficiency). I have also taught a variety of students online for over 2 years now and feel confident that this format can work well for building a positive learning environment. I always aim for students to feel confident and happy at the end of a lesson, which I believe is just as important subject knowledge. I have in-depth knowledge of the UK GCSE and A Level curriculum in Psychology, Spanish and German (AQA, OCR, Edexcel) and use up-to-date past exam papers to guide my teaching where relevant. Drawing on my experience from successfully publishing in academic journals, I also offer advanced feedback on dissertations or other project work at undergraduate and graduate degree level. In addition, I offer proofreading and individualised feedback to personal statements for university admissions. I plan my lessons to include small pieces of information and intermittent learning goals, balancing explanations with giving students opportunities for applying and practicing the newly learnt information. To ensure continuous progress, my lessons usually start with a quiz or a quick recap of the previous lesson’s content. If desired, I provide students with further useful materials to be completed independently in between lessons. Where possible, I like to connect study material to real life examples that students can relate to. I’ve observed that when seeing the personal relevance of the subject matter, students have often shown significant learning progress, motivation and understanding. I always welcome questions and feedback. I’m very much looking forward to continue working with a range of different students!

Degree educated
I have over 15 years of teaching experience and in that time I have taught many different age ranges; pre-school (1-5), primary school (5-11), college students (16+) and adult learners (18+) and so I am able to adapt to the teaching needs and learning styles and abilities of my students, which gives them a tailored and therefore more supportive and encouraging learning experience so that they can reach their goals and fulfil their academic potential. I am passionate about teaching and learning and will always help and challenge my students so they get the most from the lesson and themselves. My aim as a tutor is to ensure students have the right skills to learn and achieve in any subject . I am a tutor who believes every student is capable of acheiving the best and that study skills are as important as subject knowledge. Therefore, when I work with students I not only cover subject knowledge but I also teach them study skills so they can learn for themselves in the future (eg: university). I believe becoming an independent learner boosts students self-esteem and passion for knowledge and learning and that being able to learn effecitvely is a great motivator for students. I have a passion for English, Child development, Chidlcare and Education and Mental Health studies. I am a full time online tutor and also a mentor to many University students in my spare time to help them improve their academic performance as well as work towards their career goals.
