My experience tutoring began working with a fifteen year old girl a 4 years ago who was struggling with social anxiety and panic disorder.

I am a multilinguist with considerable experience in teaching French and Spanish to a diverse range of students. I have a 100% success rate in terms of my students improving their academic grades. I am extremely passionate about my subject and committed to understanding and engaging with each new student's learning needs. I tailor my individual teaching programmes to ensure each student is able to develop and move confidently towards their goal, whether it be academic or personal. I choose to work with students who are committed to working towards their goal - they don't have to love the subject to begin with, they just have to want to improve, the love comes later, often when they discover how simple it can be and they start to see improvements in their ability and understanding! Among my previous students are Yas, a Spanish GCSE student who went from a predicted D to receiving an A* overall in 14 months, Roderick, who with no prior teaching since his French GCSE 16 months before we began, received an A* at French A Level after 7 months of home-schooling with me and Kendall, a French IB student who went from grade 3/4 to achieving a final grade 6/7 in 20 months - she called me up in Guatemala on results day so I knew it must be good news! Testimonials: "James tutored both my daughters for GCSE Spanish and they both received A*. This was particularly impressive with my eldest daughter who was on a Grade D at the end of Year 10. James accelerated Yasmin's learning rapidly over 6 months in Year 11, and changed her attitude towards Spanish from a boring difficult subject to her favourite! Aside from his in-depth understanding of the curriculum and effective teaching techniques, James is a lovely person with a great sense of humour, and the girls really enjoyed his company. We'd highly recommend James to anyone wanting to improve their grades and language skills." Zaya F - Spanish GCSE "James was simply brilliant in giving my son confidence in his ability to learn languages, which ultimately led to GCSE success. He possesses a magical ability to build self-esteem. Invaluable. Fabulous. Very highly recommended." Donna G – French & Spanish IGCSE "James tutored me in French for just over a year for the international baccalaureate. Marked out of 7, I originally achieved 3-4s in all my examinations. James helped with reading, writing and oral presentations. He helped me to increase my confidence in speaking and also taught me invaluable techniques for verb conjugations. In the end I was able to achieve a 6/7 in my final IB results. Thank you James !" Kendall U - French International Baccalaureate "James was instrumental in getting my son to an A* for his Spanish A Level this year. Over a period of 8 months James worked to improve Omar’s original predicted grade of B, focussing on some core grammar which had been missed by the school and developing his reading, writing and oral skills. James often made himself available at short notice to review and offer feedback on Omar’s practice essays for the literature part of the course. We are delighted with the result and with the high level of professional service that James provides. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend." Mehta F - Spanish A Level “My daughter Chloe was struggling with Spanish during year 11, she failed her mock and was really worried. We found James and he worked steadily with her for the three months leading up to her GCSE. I’m delighted to say she achieved a 6(B)!! Incredible...a fail to a B in only 25 hours tutoring! Thank you James, she couldn’t have done it without you!” Beth W – Spanish GCSE James tutored my daughter for just over a year at French Pre-U. Our aim was to secure a comfortable distinction. James knew the syllabus inside out and ensured no stone had been left unturned in her knowledge and exam technique. We were delighted but not too surprised when the final result came back a D1. We’re thrilled with James, his approach and the care he brings to each session. Such a star. Mikael J – Cambridge Pre U French "James is an amazing teacher. He got my daughter to a B in French GCSE from a predicted D, and my son to a B in Spanish GCSE from a predicted E. This helped my daughter to get to UCL and put the Russell Group within my son's reach. His teaching style is unique. Within minutes of arrival, he had won the respect of both my teenagers. He made himself available at weekends and in the evenings both in person and over Skype. I am so grateful for his help. I highly recommend him." Rachel G - French & Spanish GCSE "James is an outstanding teacher - he taught my son to find his own motivation & the confidence he needed to excel in Spanish. He brings the language to life and creates a self sufficiency in study habits that was wonderful to observe - the GCSE process was made palatable and non daunting ! I would wholly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor that cares about the child in the most holistic sense and leaves them with the skills to tackle languages independently post their time with him - he was an absolute star !" Shaleen Y - Spanish IGCSE "James is one of the best tutors I have ever met. He is clearly passionate about teaching and has such an engaging and enthusiastic manner. Anyone who is lucky enough to come across James has found a true gem. I cannot recommend him highly enough." Helen S - Spanish GCSE

Hello, My name is Emir and I'm a first year undergrad student at King's College London. I graduated from High School with the IB Diploma with a score of 40 out of 45. I took Math HL AA, Chemistry HL and Physics SL and I scored 7 out of each one and I will be more than willing to help anyone in need of exceeding their mock exams, regular exams or the actual IB exam itself. I am also very familiar with the GCSE and A-Level format so I will surely do my best to contribute. I have 2-3 years of experience of tutoring in Turkey (where I'm from) and I believe I provide a different insight towards my students. I believe that as a student, I am more empathetic towards students because I was in their position not too long ago and that's why I can relate to them more than a professional teacher. I understand their stress, their concerns about time management and besides just lecturing, I can also advice and guide them about their social and academic life and how to balance both during exam periods because I have been in their shoes not more than a year ago. That's why I'm open to any questions the students may have, not just about the topic that they are studying; but about how they should study, what they should do in their free time to avoid mental exhaustion etc.

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 an engaging and proactive personal tutor with 12 years of experience in tutoring English, Drama, and Creative Writing. I work with GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate students, predominantly on their English Literature studies I adapt every session to the specific needs of the student and ensure that each lesson is successful in obtaining their personal goals. In Literature tuition, we will focus on analytical skills and essay writing (considering structure, context, and critical analysis). We will also compile a revision portfolio, which greatly aids the student when preparing for their exams, allowing them to review their work in a clear, compartmentalized, and accessible manner. For many years, I worked as a school tutor with students from year 2 to year 13. This has provided me with a strong and comprehensive understanding of academic demands and the school curriculum. Additionally, I have experience teaching KS1 and KS2 subjects and have extensive experience working with SEN students. I hold a Masters Degree in Creative Writing and have led many writer's workshops for young people. I run a theatre company in London and have taught workshops and classes with drama students, varying in age from 9 to 19. I am a positive, reliable, supportive, and fun teacher who works hard to ensure that each student is able to learn in an enjoyable and accessible manner.

Teaching is my Passion but just a profession. I started teaching at a tender age of 12 and since then I've been teaching students from the age of 3 up to 74. I have taught Business, Economics, Accounting, Math, English, Sociology, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Politics, Geography and History for GCSE/ OL and Advanced Level examinations for popular local and international exam boards including Cambridge, Edexcel, OCR and AQA. During my 22 years of formal school teaching career and more than 25 years of tutoring, I have produced most World Prize Winners who scored 600/600 for the above subjects in the above mentioned examinations consecutively over many years. I have also lectured at Universities and tutored for undergraduates, post graduates and PhD students and helped with their assignments and assessments over the years. My classes are interactive and fun to learn which make the students love not just like the subject. I discuss a range of past exam questions, self-prepared exams and training the students to improve their writing skills in theory subjects and improve their analytical skills in other. My most important asset of all is my flexibility and adaptability to the individual requirements and needs of each student and preparing myself accordingly. This skill I have gained by teaching students of all culture and age groups from 63 different countries. Demo lessons I’ve attached some links below of my demo lessons which will give an idea on my teaching methodology. Please feel free to contact me if you have any more queries.

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.

I am a pharmaceutical chemistry graduate, this course involved the study of drugs, drug discovery and its development. The main science of the course I studied is chemistry. Chemistry is an interesting subject as it connects other sciences together such as biology, physics and geology. Chemistry teaches useful skills that can be used in everyday life. These skills help you learn how to be objective and how to reason and solve problems. I was a PAL leader at the university where I helped first and second year students with their course material and ensuring they were comfortable within their course. PAL is a group learning where students reflect on course content and share knowledge and skills with each other through activities run by a PAL leader. This creates both an academic support network with new students and a learning community the course. I was also part of the Chemistry society in the University, this helped me with building relationships with other chemistry students. The structure of my lessons will be based on what the students feels they are weak in and where they need help in building the confidence when answering that certain question in the exam. When taking exams, I have based my revision on practicing exam papers and answering all questions related to that topic after watching videos. I have been a tutor for around 4 years tutoring in Maths and Science.

Bonjour! I am a 28-year-old native French speaker from the South of France. I have been living in London for over 4 years and have several years of experience teaching French to a variety of people, from young children to adults. After obtaining my high school diploma I became an au pair in the US and taught French to the children in my care (8, 12, and 15 years old). Seeing them enjoy the acquisition of new skills gave me great satisfaction! When I returned to France I studied Tourism and Marketing at University. After completing my Bachelor's degree, I decided to move to London (2017) and put my knowledge into practice as a tour guide, alongside tutoring. In February 2020 I volunteered to help to build a school in Uganda (Abode School Project). One of the missions was to share our teaching technique with primary school teachers as well as teaching them French and English. It was such a privilege to share my language and culture, whilst learning about Ugandan customs and traditions. This experience was very inspiring and has prompted me to teach French regularly, back in London! Today, I'm teaching French at all levels and I'm passionate about it. At the moment, I teach online, with the possibility of doing lessons in person in the future when the circumstances allow it again. I adapt my lessons to each person's individual needs and goals and I make sure all aspects of the language are covered - written and oral comprehension as well as written and oral expression. My approach is also to make the lessons as fun and enjoyable as possible as well as helping students to gain confidence. I encourage them to try and find answers themselves, even if they are not fully sure. It is important not to be too self-conscious about making mistakes... everyone does! Outside of tutoring, I love to spend time traveling, meeting new people, exploring new cultures. I am also a ballet dancer and I do a lot of yoga! I’m very flexible with my hours, I can work weekdays/on the weekend/in the evening. Au plaisir de te rencontrer, A bientôt! Anaïs

In only one month worth of lessons with Nora, I managed to go from borderline B/C grade to an A grade, and ultimately land a place at King's College London. I was amazed at how thorough, effective and detailed Nora’s lessons were. Nora knows exactly what goes into getting top grades for exams and she is one of the best tutors out there.
