I am a graduate of Oxford University. I tutored throughout my studies, and consequently have 9 years of experience - both in the UK and abroad. I teach English Language and Literature, History, Latin and Greek and French up to A-level, as my main subjects. I have also specialised in tutoring the humanities up to A-Level/ IB Level tutoring, including politics, religious studies and history. I have taught at all levels, having worked with students as young as 5 years-old, through to A-Level students and adult learners. I have experience in preparing students for the ISEB Pre-tests, for 11+, 13+ and common entrance - English and maths. I have successfully coached many students through the application procedures to top UK independent schools, including Eton College and Harrow School, and to top universities including Cambridge University and University College London. I am a committed tutor and have consistently produced excellent results. I believe that effective teaching must focus on the student’s needs and must be engaging and fun. I always strive to bring the best out in my students.

At present in my early 50s. I began teaching, in a London tutorial college, straight after coming down from Oxford. A few years after that, I interrupted my teaching career to return to university to pursue doctoral research, but I continued to see a small number of private students throughout my time as a post-graduate student. Accordingly, I have somewhere in the region of thirty years’ experience of helping students to realise their potential and, quite often, to exceed their expectations of themselves. My original specialisms were English Language and Literature, and these remain subjects I enjoy teaching immensely, but I have equal experience by now in History of Art, Philosophy, Film Studies, and Religious Studies, each of which I have taught to A level students and undergraduates. I also specialise in Pre-U English. The following is a quotation from the reference supplied by the school from which I resigned last year, after twenty years as Head of English and de facto Head of Humanities, in order to focus on private tuition: ‘Bill’s main virtues as a teacher […] are his infectious enthusiasm for his subjects, his immense knowledge and erudition, his intimate familiarity with past papers and assessment criteria, his commitment to his pupils, his willingness to make supererogatory efforts on their behalf, his provision of extensive and meticulous course notes, and his generosity with his time.’

I am currently studying Biochemistry at University of Oxford having finished schooling at North London Collegiate School where I gained 45/45 in the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. I have had previous experience tutoring IB biology, chemistry, English, maths and economics as well as GCSE French, English, maths, biology and chemistry. I believe in altering my teaching style according to the student and have had experience in tutoring a variety of different academic abilities and ages. I am extremely organised and am happy to go above and beyond in regards to preparation and gathering resources to help the student. My experience in tutoring for IB and GCSE means that I am good at ensuring that all parts of the syllabus are covered and that the student is well informed of what’s expected in the exam. One of my IB students was recently admitted to Tufts University in Massachusetts while other students that I am currently tutoring for SAT are currently applying for numerous highly ranked American Universities.

I am a very approachable and professional Teacher currently working within a tutoring establishments across the UK delivering English, Drama and Science lessons. I have experience working as a leading English Tutor role, of which I provide my personally prepared lesson plans and materials for students and others to use. In addition, I hold a strong array of knowledge within the education and drama industry, of which in particular are: professional teaching standards and student relation building skills, especially but not limited to: providing a professional, entertaining and educational learning environment for students in every lesson. Holding previous work experience within teaching positions has provided me with a useful understanding of all that is expected from an education authority figure whilst granting me the knowledge and efficiency to successfully meet these requirements. I am currently seeking a full-time, permanent job related to my skills background, but not necessarily limited to this as I am always looking to increase my experience in education. I am on the DBS update service and I have SEN experience as well.

Hi there, I have a colourful teaching background which began on the tropical east coast of paradise (Australia). My first teaching experiences were shared between the fitness and tourism industries where I was a personal trainer, aerobics instructor, weightlifting coach, marine naturalist and Japanese tour guide on the Great Barrier Reef. Over the years I continued to expand on my teaching skills and became a dive instructor, underwater photographer and CrossFit athlete. During these years speaking Japanese, teaching people how to dive and developing a motivational mindset as an athlete, I was studying to become a school teacher at university and tutoring advanced english. I am now a qualified primary school teacher, high school english teacher, TEFL (teaching, english as a foreign language) teacher, writer and poet living in London. My teaching philosophies are very constructivist. My students are encouraged and guided towards being active meaning makers of their learning and environments. I am also a pragmatist and humanist as I align my teaching practice with practicality, care and synergy. This is quite the opposite of the standard education system which is rooted in behaviourism (amputation of personal thoughts, feelings and emotions with a strong stance on positive and negative reinforcement). Hence, why I am choosing to take my teaching outside of the classroom. However, I understand that there is a place for passing tests and knowing certain curriculums and so I will teach you how to understand the curriculums and success criterion you may be following. If you work with me you can expect to be placed in the centre of very personalised learning and we will build great rapport. My personal goals are to become proficient in Japanese and become a Japanese teacher and translator and to write and publish a novel or ten in English (I love language). I am available to tutor English which aligns with the school curriculum and beyond for all ages and as a TEFL tutor for anyone who desires to learn how to speak English. If you want to write for creative purposes I am also here to help you. Let's write poems and stories together! I am highly flexible and have a sharp eye for identifying students' unique needs. I can work effectively and happily with ages 5 - adult. I am a big believer in celebrating both similarities and differences in people and learning styles - I will always make it work for you. I look forward to meeting you. Selina

I am an extremely experienced and fully qualified Secondary English Teacher. I have worked in the OFSTED graded outstanding Girls Grammar School close to my home, Westcliff High School for Girls, Essex, the Academy Grammar School, Greensward Academy, Hockley and a Maintained Secondary School, The Fitzwimarc School in Rayleigh, Essex. My positions have included Teacher of English, Head of Faculty, Head of Department English & Media Studies. I am currently tutoring for GCSE English Language and English Literature. I am a qualified examiner for AQA and I am currently teaching English Literature and Language for all the main exam boards, AQAm Edexcel, WJC. My pupils this year achieved outstanding results! I am so proud of them all! Pupils predicted a Level 4 in April by their schools went onto achieve Level 8 in the space of 2 months! Anything is possible! My qualifications are a BA (hons) Humanities, Dip HE Communication Studies, MA Ed., and Secondary Post Graduate Certificate Masters Level. I believe the fundamental and crucially important role I can play in teaching my pupils is the ability for them to feel confident in their own abilities! Learning is about finding out, experimenting and trying new ways, it's about enjoyment and ‘light-bulb’moments. My pupils believe they can achieve and they will, to raise the bar from self-doubt to belief for some pupils removes the barriers to learning that they may have faced for many years. I am confident that one to one tutoring is a very necessary part of learning and I tutor many of my grammar school pupils to ensure they gain the best possible grades they are capable of achieving. Some of my pupils have been really worried that they cannot pass their English examinations at all, or "don't understand the text" , a common complaint, but with my support have been able to achieve more than they thought possible. With time, patience and care pupils have mastered the skills to succeed!

I am a MSc Pharmacology graduate who has studied Biology from a primary to a higher tertiary level. I have tutored many students and friends in person, including those who are cramming for an exam. My methods of teaching include practical and real-world examples, to ensure maximum retention of information. I focus on the important parts of each topics and give additional examples that students need to boost their exam marks. As most parents and students may already be paying large amounts for their biology education, I believe that they should not need to pay a high rate for extra tutoring. Sometimes students simply require repetition or a different teaching style in order to learn a subject. In addition to the lessons I give, I will also provide supplementary reading and homework should students request it. I am also available via email for students with last minute questions before an exam/test Please note I only offer online tutoring, as I believe this is the most efficient way to offer multiple lessons in a week to each student.

I am an experienced tutor, with over 10 years of experience. I am passionate about good quality teaching and a strong advocate for education. I enjoy sharing my subject knowledge and helping my students achieving their goal through rigorous work and emotional investment. I have a BA, MA and MSc in History and related subjects (Philosophy, Religious Studies, Cultures) and I am currently completing my PhD in the History of Emotions. As a trained historian, I am able to see the bigger picture, putting pieces together, with the strongest eye for details. Usually, I am excellent in identifying and addressing problems, especially in regards to my students or my classroom environment. My students have described me as a ‘rigorous’ and ‘inspiring’ tutor. I am Italian and I have been educated both in Italy (BA, MSc) and in the UK (MA, PhD). I have a wide, deep, solid knowledge of Humanities, particularly History, Cultural Studies and Religious Studies. I am fluent in English, Italian (mother tongue), Spanish (University level, DELE diploma) and French. I have also studied Ancient Greek and Latin. I can teach a History lesson starting from the etymology of a word, quoting literary texts and primary sources, using several different historiographical approaches. On the contrary, I can teach Spanish and Italian not only focusing on linguistic functions or grammar, but also explaining the meaning and use of the language through the culture and history of Spain and Italy. I would say my teaching approach is Socratic and solidly interdisciplinary. Essentially, I am comfortable teaching any subject in the Humanities. Currently I am working as an Assistant Tutor at the University of Warwick, where I teach a module focused on Early Modern European History, which is my area of expertise. I have experience in planning and delivering lessons, marking assignments, monitoring students' progress, being aware of health and safety as well as pastoral issues related to my students. During the last two years I have also worked for a charity called 'The Brilliant Club', delivering academic style programmes in schools, to promote higher educations for young people with high potentiality but disadvantaged backgrounds. I regularly teach Italians to kids in my local area and, when still residing in Italy, I worked for several years as private tutor for private families, assisting kids aged 7 to 17.
