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 qualified in 2004 as a SpLD (Specific Learning Difficulties) tutor for dyslexic students aged 5 up to and including adult. Having worked in several well-known London prep schools doing one-to-one tutoring, I began to focus solely as a freelance tutor in January 2018. I have since started to tutor mainstream students, as well as those with special educational needs. In addition to supporting students with the English curriculum, I can also help with handwriting and fine motor skills issues, study skills and Key Stage One maths and I have worked with bilingual and trilingual students. I teach and specialise in English from primary to GCSE level, having taught for 15 years. I also tutor French.

I am an experienced Maths and English tutor for GCSE students and below. I have previously studied at a grammar school and achieved a degree in Maths and Computer Science from a well known red-brick university. I currently work as an IT Manager and have done so for the last 16 years. Alongside this I have over 10 years tutoring experience in Maths and Computer Science and have seen significant improvements in several students during this time. Making the difference is my main objective as well as making lessons fun. I have worked with students both on a one to one basis and in groups. This has also included online tuition via Skype/Zoom alongside more traditional face to face tuition. I believe that my excellent communication skills and solid academic background enable me to be an effective tutor within my subject fields.

My name is Lara and I am a tutor from Maidenhead, England. Qualifications: B.A Art History B.A French Literature and Language Masters degree (MRes) in Assyriology Current PhD Candidate at Oxford University French and English: I would love to teach you if you would like to learn English or French language aspects such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. I know I can help you with your speaking fluency and accuracy. I have been teaching languages for two years at a variety of levels. Most of my students improve their language skills and can express themselves and their ideas concisely and effectively. I do this by motivating my students with new teaching approaches that focus on communicative activities. I want my student to feel they have the confidence to speak the language in the real world. I also work with GCSE and A-Level students on exam response and literature analysis. I specialise in helping students identify and understand language devices. Geography: Similarly to higher-level English and French, we look at exam questions and examiners reports to highlight the skills and knowledge needed to attain the top grades. I use exam papers to identify areas of weakness so we can then work on specific skills or topics. We can then revise topics and make revision materials. Specialist areas include coasts and earth hazards, but I have experience teaching all modules. I also offer tuition in Art History and Physical Education. I will provide my students with positive and constructive feedback, and an achievable goal timeline. If you want to study with me, you can contact me and schedule your lesson. Hope to hear from you soon.

I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher having trained in the creative arts at London’s Central St Martins and The Beaux Arts in Paris and as a teacher at UCL’s Institute of Education. I believe that the tutelage offered to every new student is as unique as a fingerprint and I work hard with my students to help them achieve their goals. As a qualified teacher for the past 6 years and acting head of department for the past 2 years I have been helping students between KS2 and post 18 to achieve success in their GCSE, A-level, BTEC and HND qualifications in Art, Textiles and functional skills maths and English. Having done this and facilitated a large number of successful university applications to prestigious UK and international arts universities for several years in London and internationally I am looking forward to supporting other students to do the same. I have worked extensively with students of all abilities, supporting the achievement of gifted and talented students and those with learning and physical impairments to achieve their greatest success. As a class teacher I have always used one-to-one tutorials to support student success tutoring both inside and privately outside school. I feel that the Arts are uniquely positioned to be personalised and I believe that the best way of enabling student success is to engage them in a personal enjoyment of the subject by providing an bespoke programme. I look forward to offering further opportunities to engage students in the arts in the near future.

I am a published writer/poet and also run a successful small publishing press, focusing on writing in the experimental calibre.

I specialise in the following: - Ages 10 - 18 ENGLISH LITERATURE: - Poetry - Shakespeare - The novel - Fiction and Drama - Literal and inferential comprehension - Critical reading - Evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, grammatical and structures features. - Comparing and contrasting texts - Revision/exam preparation and coursework/dissertation help ENGLISH LANGUAGE: - Critical reading and comprehension - Summary and synthesis - Evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, form, grammatical and structural features. - Comparing and Contrasting texts - Producing clear and coherent text - Writing for impact and purpose (selecting, organising and emphasising facts, ideas and key points; citing evidence and quotation effectively and pertinently to support views; creating emotional impact; using language creatively, imaginatively and persuasively, including rhetorical devices. - Creative Writing (in the form of "workshopping" and experimentation fo devices and ideas.)

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.

I am a Cambridge graduate, with vast experience as both a classroom teacher and private tutor. After my graduation in 2012, I worked as a Teacher of Classics at a private school in Glasgow. During this time, uptake for my subjects increased dramatically, and pupils consistently gained top grades under my supervision, including a full class of A grades in Latin during my final year in this role. I was also involved with university applications, with a focus on Oxbridge. This included helping to structure and proofread personal statements, assisting with college choices and giving mock interviews in a variety of subjects. In 2015, I took up a position as a traveling homeschool tutor, working with two teenage bilingual brothers. I was their tutor for English, Latin, Classical Civilisation and History, as well as SAT Reading and Writing. This experience of tutoring while travelling the world required a high level of organisation and motivation to keep my students on track despite the distractions of continuous travel. The boys' level of English improved hugely during my three years with them, and culminated in the eldest student being accepted to his U.S. university of choice. I have been tutoring online for six years, and, as an experienced online tutor, I have developed methods specific to online teaching which ensure that my students remain engaged and motivated. I utilise screen-sharing and Powerpoint while working online with my students, to keep lessons lively and enjoyable. As a highly organised and efficient professional, students always get the most out of their lessons, and I have a consistent track record of improving grades across a range of subjects and levels. I engage quickly with students of all ages and provide a fun learning environment where students feel able to make the mistakes which will enable them to grow as learners. I enjoy getting to know my students well, so that I can find out what their learning styles are, and how best to support them on their learning journey. As an intelligent quick thinker, I am easily adaptable to a range of subjects and situations, with a proven track record of getting the best out of my students and meeting high client expectations.

ABOUT ME: I am a language graduate from King's College London. I have a French and Portuguese degree and love sharing my knowledge with others. Since graduating I have been working as a full time private tutor. Languages have always been my biggest passion but I also have an interest for maths and geography, both of which I took at A-level. Although I am English born, I come from a Portuguese background and am therefore fluent in two languages. I also speak French. Having done a year abroad as part of my degree (Erasmus), it helped me to really develop my French oral skills. I lived and studied in Paris for 7 months so I am familiar with French culture, history and literature. EXPERIENCE: I worked as a teaching assistant/ tutor for First Class Learning for two years. I had the privilege of helping younger children improve their English and Maths skills, through one to one tutoring. Their ages ranged from 5- 12 years, therefore I covered various levels of material. I also did work experience in my secondary school as a teaching assistant in the French department. During these two weeks I helped GCSE level students prepare for their oral French exams. I held practice speaking exams with them and made suggestions on how they could improve in order to achieve the highest level possible. I also recently ran some official GCSE Portuguese Oral exams in a school in Islington. TECHNIQUE: I aim to provide a solid knowledge of what I am teaching, whilst also paying attention to the needs of the individual. For younger learners I like to motivate them by testing their comprehension with games and problems. I intend to make sure the individual is understanding what I am teaching by making regular pauses and ensuring they have understood the material either by asking them to summarize what has just been said, or doing a quick mini test. Most importantly, I hope to show great passion for what I am teaching, and this will encourage the student to also be passionate in their learning. I will try to make the material as interesting as possible in order to achieve the best results. I would appreciate feedback from the student on how I can be of greater help, or on their preferences of teaching style. I am open to either following the student's needs ( help with their weekly homework), or planning the lessons myself using the curriculum. I am a very patient person, who wants to make sure I am doing my job to the best of my ability. I understand with the pressures of school today, many students experience stress, anxiety and low mood related to their studies. As a person who went through this myself, I hope I can help others overcome their obstacles and give them kind words of encouragement. DBS security checked! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions! :)

I was born and educated in England. I have resided in Canterbury, Leeds, Oxford, London, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Oswestry. I gained five 'A Levels' (AAABC) at Notre Dame 6th Form College (Leeds) before attending Oxford University where I obtained Degrees in Philosophy and French. I proceeded to do Postgraduate studies in London where I was semi-resident at the British Library (1993-1998). I have been a widely published author since 1999, being the author of dozens of essays and monographs in Philosophy, Comparative Literature, Poetry and Psychology. I am co-author of the self-help book 'Reading in No Time' and author of the forthcoming publication 'French in No Time' (2020). He is a member of MENSA, the BAJ (British Assoc. of Journalists) and A3M (Academy of the 3rd Millennium). I am currently editor of the 'Nobel Prize Collection' for Living Time Books. I have taught pupils from KS1 to Postgraduate Level in the UK and abroad. I undertake an equal amount of group-teaching (lecturing/seminars/classroom) and individual tutoring (mentoring/coaching/private tutorials). I have taught in Switzerland (Geneva, Basel), France (Paris), Germany (Berlin, Munich), Italy (Milan) Poland (Krakow, Warsaw) and Slovakia (Bratislava). I am a native English speaker and also a fluent speaker of French and German. I am highly experienced in teaching children and adults with special educational needs - including Autistic Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Aspergers, Pathological Demand Avoidance), ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other developmental conditions. I am quoted as saying: "Everyone can learn - it doesn't matter how differently we do so!" I specialize in GCSEs, A Levels, Entrance Exams and assistance with Dissertations, Essays, Theses & Coursework. I have explained my approach to teaching in the following way: "With every person that I teach, whether they are before me as an individual or as part of a group, first of all I take time to observe the way in which they learn - their own particular mode of processing information. Then, once I have understood their learning processes - be they visual, verbal, concrete, mathematical, or a combination of these - I customize my own teaching approach to that student's optimum mode of intake. This usually goes a large way toward maximizing their learning experience. What I find is of vital importance in the learning journey - and which is largely responsible for making it successful - is identifying with crystal clarity the exact goals which are to be attained. I make sure that my students do not lose sight of their goal and I make sure that their 'will-to-achieve' stays at a top level throughout the educational process. Without a goal, motivation falters".
