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!

Hello, My name is Max and I’ve been a teacher for the last 7 years. I specialise in exam entry, writing workshops and improving performance for the 11+, GCSE and A Levels for Language and Literature. I have a warm and compassionate approach, dedicated to each student’s development and academic access. I am proud to say I’ve helped students gain entry to St Paul’s, St Olave’s, Westminister, Dartmouth Grammar, Blackheath High, Henrietta Barnett, South Hampstead High and many others across London; sometimes helping them to win scholarships. I’ve helped GCSE and A Level students improve their grades from levels 6 to 8 and 9, working within the curriculum, homeschool students and students with learning difficulties. I am also an award winning writer (stage and screen) and know, as well as the joy of writing, the importance of academic discipline and articulacy, especially when in preparing for exams and applications. I studied scriptwriting at Central Saint Martins (BA) and playwriting (MA) at Goldsmiths University. That said, I do love to try and help each student find some pleasure in what they’re doing, with a patient and empathetic approach. I also run play and screenwriting workshops for kids and young adults and have worked the Yard Theatre, the Southwark Playhouse, The Gate Theatre, Flux Theatre, Theatre Workout, Actor’s Centre, Eaton House the Manor, Sydenham High, Alexandra Juniors and many other schools and institutions across the country. I have a real belief in the power of learning and the impact it can make on young people’s lives. I do hope I can help with your child’s studies. Scriptwriter Bio I've been a recipient of the Paris Royal Script Award, Screen to Screen Award, the Peggy Ramsay Foundation, a finalist for the Papatango Prize, Samuel French's Off Off-Broadway Award, Theatre Uncut's Prize for Political Writing and recently, the Nick Darke Award. I've also collaborated with the Wooster Group in NYC, The English Theatre Berlin and the British Museum as a dramaturg. I've had plays produced at Theatre 503, King’s Head Theatre, the Arcola, Paines Plough and many others across London. Testimonials I have two daughters, Grace and Alice, and Max, over two years was instrumental in getting them both into the top sets of English and gaining entry to Henrietta Barnett school. I would definitely recommend. Ann Marie, mother of Alice and Grace. Max helped my son, Chindera, get into Eltham College with high marks for his 11+. Pero, mother of Chindera. My daughter, Ann-Maria, has severe autism and struggled with her comprehension and creative writing. Max worked patiently with her and had an excellent relationship, helping her to really blossom. Natalie Campo, mother of Ann-Maria. He is also very professional and communicates progress regularly. Ayodeji Ojo, mother of Faith. Gayatri, although very bright, found her GCSE exams torturous. Max helped her to learn exam techniques which really helped to break everything down. Mina. My son George worked with Max in a homeschool capacity and, although English was far from his favourite subject, Max was the best tutor he ever worked with, improving from a level 4 to a 7 over a year. Sharron Delaney Zayed and Mohammed were helped by Max to improve their Engish language for GCSE. He helped imrpove their scores hugely. Clementine, nanny. Keira moved here from Australia and hated the academic system of her school so was tutored privately. Max helped her find pleasure again in reading while successfully helping her through her academic year as a homeschooled student. Keira’s mum. Max was an excellent employee – hard working, focused, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He had brilliant rapport with the students, and was able to deliver, clear, concise instructions, and work with students of all abilities to guide them through the project. I would definitely recommend him. David Workman, head of Youth Coordination, Southwark Playhouse Max has been working as a tutor and workshop leader for us for a year now and he is one of our most popular tutors.

Hi! I am a medical student at the University of Nottingham with 4 years of tutoring experience. I am experienced in providing an engaging, interactive and highly educational experience. Being an enthusiastic tutor with an approachable nature who genuinely loves teaching and observing students’ progress first hand, I regularly see students develop confidence and their love for learning. I am familiar with the new specifications for GCSE maths and sciences, having sat the new specification exams myself and know that they are much more rigorous with a lot of new content. I achieved grade 9s in maths and all three sciences and wish to share my knowledge with students in order to aid their progress. Throughout the years I continuously monitored my past students’ learning and progress to identify those who were not achieving their targets and developed strategies such as regularly checking up on those who had not performed well. I do mini tests regularly to ensure I can highlight strengths and weaknesses in specific topics and adapt my lessons to cater towards these weaknesses. I believe confidence is key to your learning and we often learn best when comfortable with having a go and not being afraid to make mistakes, which I ensure my students are comfortable with doing so. Additionally, I have tutored for other online platforms in the past so have experience of both online and in-person teaching. I have an abundant supply of teaching materials for GCSE Mathematics and Sciences for all exam boards, including numerous exam questions, which I regularly use in my lessons. I have learnt numerous strategies of teaching which I make specific to each student's learning style in order to maximise their learning. What I lack in degree qualifications, being relatively young myself, I certainly make up for in possessing the right qualities to achieve the maximum potential of the student. Being determined, patient and possessing an excellent work ethic are the strengths that have helped me through challenging moments throughout my exams and university. I am capable, clear and concise in delivering lessons, proven by great results with students in the past 4 years.

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!

I graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Classics before going on to become a fully-qualified teacher. I worked in the private school sector for nine years before focussing my career on providing high-quality online tuition. I tutor Classical Civilisation, Latin and Ancient History from KS2 all the way to Undergraduate level and I really enjoy bringing this wonderfully diverse and interesting subject to life for my students. I also have experience in tutoring pupils for 11 and 13+ entrance examinations in English and Verbal Reasoning which I find immensely rewarding. I have mentored students as a supervisor for EPQ projects, with a particular focus on written assignments. Helping learners to develop the quality, sophistication and originality of their written work is something that I love to do. Whilst I worked in a school, I was responsible for helping students to prepare their personal statements for UCAS applications, so I have a wealth of experience in that area. I have worked on applications for a wide variety of subjects, including Economics, Medicine, Psychology, History, and many others. I have an excellent track record in helping my students to achieve offers from their first-choice university. As an Oxford graduate myself, I am well-placed to advise applicants on what to expect from the application and interview process. As a tutor, I aim to create thoughtful, innovative and exciting lessons, which support my students as individuals. I am very motivated, hardworking and dependable, and I get a real sense of purpose from helping my students to achieve the best possible grades.

So you're stressed and agonising over that essay you can't write, or that text you can't get your head around? And you have an exam on the way! Maybe you've taken the exam already and didn't quite get the results you wanted. It can be daunting to say the least. But that's where I can help you. While still at school, I tutored some of the younger students and saw real progress and their grades, skills and self-esteem. It's a process I've been developing ever since. After graduating as an actor from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with a 1st, I spent 5 years working extensively in all levels of the education system, from School Students all the way up to Consultant Doctors. The one thing all of the people I mentor or tutor say again and again is "I never saw it like that" and that's crucial to what I offer. My focus has always been on taking seemingly abstract, complex and confusing material and making it accessible using my unusual slant on things. And I can use this to help you overcome the obstacles in your way. I teach seminars regularly with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust using a text to explore essay technique, thematic ideas and language. I regularly coach students and professionals to develop communication, problem solving and leadership. All while building their confidence with a given skill. My approach is tailored to the individual, and is therefore flexible to suit their needs. But central to it are the following criteria: - Building core competencies relative to the subject: Essay writing, objective analytics, attention to details and how to expand on them. - Identifying obstacles specific to the student. Using coaching techniques, tasks and conversation to help them overcome it. - Exploring alternative view points and helping to develop a wider understanding of the material in context. - Building confidence and competency in bringing knowledge and skills to the subject in question. - Basic exam technique, focus and stress-relief to help think analytically under pressure. - Public speaking, presentation skills and ownership of the text if required for a public speaking role. Outside of the tutoring world my hobbies ( as you might have guessed) include theatre. But I've also developed a bizarre love of gardening, and no I've moved to a big city, I'm really looking forward to the challenge of growing vegetables on my window sill!

I'm a student at Durham University studying English Literature. I received Grade 9s for both Language and Literature at GCSE Level at Woodlands Community College, and I received A*s for both Language and Literature separately in my A-Levels at Barton Peveril College. I'm a first time tutor, but I am quick at learning, and have all the skill sets available to make a good go of things. I will dedicate my time to you and help you as best as I can. I want to help students build their confidence in regards to English, and support them to achieve their goals, whether it be passing exams or becoming more advanced in the subject. I'm hands on, understanding, and will stand by you through the learning process happily until you feel you are ready to take on exams or branch out in your knowledge. I am more than happy to help with both GCSE and A-Level students. I can create resources that are accessible and helpful to you, as well as create practice questions/take past paper questions and mark the responses accordingly to build up confidence in an exam environment. I will adapt my methods to suit the student as best as possible so they get the best results available.

I am an undergraduate studying Biochemistry at King's College London. Prior to this I studied A-Level Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at Newham collegiate sixth form (The NCS) which uses tailored methods to help students achieve top grades. Using these techniques I acquired from my college I aim to help my students achieve grades beyond what their school/college may have predicted for them. I've previously tutored Ks2 and Ks3 Maths and English, as well as GCSE Maths, English and Science at a tuition centre and privately. Before teaching a student a subject, I'll make them R.A.G their specification to identify the topics thy are the weakest in, the topics which they are slightly confident in and the topics which they are most confident in. I'll thereafter, teach them their subject content starting with the topics they are weakest in and will thereafter go through exam question with them to consolidate their knowledge. I'll also go through exam techniques and specific vocabulary to use when answering different questions so that they can maximise the amount of marks they receive in their final exam and thus achieving a higher grade overall. To get to know me a bit better, some of the hobbies I engage in during my free time is writing poetry and painting/drawing.

I am a qualified teacher with 8 years experience. Helping children learn, grow and progress is a passion of mine. Making learning fun and immersive for children is important. I have worked with children with various needs and differentiation is key, as all children learn differently. I have taught years 3, 4 & 5. I can help with all subjects but my particular focus is on English (reading, grammar, writing) and Mathematics. I use various methods, stimuli and concrete resources to enhance understanding. My approach is calm, caring and compassionate. I believe that trust is the foundation of a healthy teacher-student relationship.

I am a current teacher and I have been teaching for eleven years. I first started tutoring at the age of sixteen, when I was recruited by the company that supported me with tutoring. Therefore I have nineteen years of tutoring experience! No student I have ever taught has been the same, therefore I place priority on individually tailored lessons. Most students come to me with a weakness or lack of confidence in the subject they need support with and I throughly enjoy seeing them sail through exams because they have been shown the appropriate technique and exactly how to hit those top marks. It's been so enjoyable having students and parents message me straight after exams in regards to how confident they felt. As a tutor I regularly check in with parents/guardians with monthly reports and examples of work so you can see the progress for yourselves. However, the support doesn't stop once students have sat their exams. I offer free UCAS and personal statement support to previous tutees to support them in their ongoing learning journey.
