I have been working as Teacher of Chemistry and Secondary Mathematics & Science Teacher in Secondary Schools across UK for more than 10 years. Alongside, I have been offering private tuitions to A-level students in Chemistry and Mathematics, and to GCSE students in Mathematics and Combined Sciences. My tutoring sessions include covering the curriculum through presentations (embedded with highlighted keywords), dictation notes and verbal explanations; helping with completing homework assignments and courseworks; practising questions from textbooks, workbooks, professional worksheets and past examination papers; exam revision using recent examination papers and exam-style extension questions; support and guidance for practical assessments through presentations, worksheets, examination questions and videos. A majority of my students who have taken regular sessions with me has made me proud by securing outstanding grades in their GCSEs and A-levels, and are currently studying in Sixth Form Colleges or Universities of their choice in their chosen fields. Some of them even contact me while in their higher education and I'm happy to offer them any support and advice I can to see them progress successfully in their academic and professional career.

I am an economics student in my third and final year at the University of Bristol, currently living in London. I have a job offer for technology consulting at Deloitte which I will be starting next September after graduation. I have been giving private lessons for three years now, with my students obtaining an A or higher. I am happy to help other students of all ages at any education level up to A levels, for mathematics and economics. My teaching method varies depending on the student - some students love a more tutor-led approach (very similar to a lesson at school). The structure of these kinds of lessons involve starting with reviewing content and then answering questions on what has been taught. On the other hand, many students prefer coming to the session with questions and work they have already started perhaps find challenging. In this case, the structure of the lesson is predominately set by the student. In my GCSEs I have obtained 10 A*-A, with an A* mathematics. For my A levels I have obtained all A's in maths, economics, chemistry. I am happy to tutor over Skype or in person.

Hello, I am Bethany. I am currently a Teaching Assistant at an Independent Prep School in London and I have tutored for over 4 years both face-to-face and online. I am an enthusiastic and friendly person and will encourage all my students to perform to their best standard while having fun learning. I have the patience and ability needed to connect with my students to find the best way to improve their understanding, as each session will be tailored to each individual student. I have now been tutoring for over 4 years both online and face to face gaining lots of experience. Furthermore, I have been teaching gymnastics to children since I was 15, and have been working at national and international summer schools each summer since 2014, so have a lot of experience in teaching and engaging with children from all backgrounds and at all ages. This vast range of experience has taught me a lot about adapting to different personalities. After taking my A-Levels I went on to do a Geography with Biological Sciences degree at the University of Exeter where I gained a 1st in my dissertation and an Upper 2:1 classification. In my first year of university, I began tutoring part-time both online and face to face. After university, I was lucky enough to be placed on an Erasmus+ fully funded placement for 3 months, where I taught English as a foreign language in Seville, Spain and gained my TEFL qualification, where I carried on tutoring part-time online. I am now enrolled to study a Master's degree in Climate Change: Environment, Science and Policy which will commence in September 2019 on a part-time basis. Having tutored a great number of students over the years, I found that each of them learns and makes sense of their subjects in very different ways, therefore, I tailor my sessions to each student. During the sessions, we will cover what you want to understand, as well as going along with the syllabus if needs be. We will use all four different types of learning and will stick to what is suited to you best, which we will discuss in our first ever session together. The sessions will be fun and enlightening, and I will prepare for the sessions beforehand, and if you would like I am able to produce homework worksheets that test what we have gone through the session. Currently I am based in South London so I am very flexible in terms of scheduling a session whether that may be at the weekend or an evening during the week. When I am not tutoring and teaching part-time, I am working at the theatre as a casual employee in the West End and I enjoy playing tennis, and doing gymnastics and ballet, keeping up to date with global news and events and catching up with family and friends! Lastly, I am extremely flexible, so please just get into contact with me and we can go from there! "Bethany has been amazing! My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed the lessons spent with Bethany and always looks forward to them which I am happy about. My daughter has always felt at ease and the sessions were always very productive. She is very flexible and understanding and she has always been very punctual. She is a lovely girl. She is a great match for my daughter as she is always patient and engaging and I would recommend her to everyone" (Mother of an 11+ student) I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Common Entrance Tutors in London

The Common Entrance exams, sat at either 11+ or 13+, are used by senior schools (secondary) to assess pupils’ academic ability. Exams are set and regulated by the Independent Schools Examinations Board (ISEB).Some schools, for example, St Paul’s, Wycombe Abbey and Westminster, have their own admissions test. And while the discrepancy between their tests and the standard Entrance exams are minimal, the difference is about 15%.Many students in the UK sit Common Entrance (11+/13+) exams as part of the admission process into selective secondary schools.

The exam is usually sat at 13 but can be sat at 11 years of age. Respected and competitive public schools require students to take this exam and select students based on their results. A pass rate of 70% is usually required. The entrance exams, which include the 4+, 7+ and 8+ as well as the 11+ and 13+ are highly competitive, they require a great deal of preparation, and parents should start to make plans at least a year in advance or the exams.The first port of call would be to find a tutor or teacher who can support your son or daughter throughout the preparation time. Make sure the tutor know what they are talking about and that they know both the standard ISEB Common entrance exams, and the tailored ones, devised by a number of schools.

Exam papers are set based on a child’s ability and time spent on the specific subject. It wouldn’t be fair to give a child a Latin paper when they have only started to learn the subject the week before. Each of the compulsory exams (English, Maths, and Science) are far more in-depth than the 11+.

Tutoring FAQs

A

If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

A

Booking and paying for private tuition has never been easier! As a customer, you’ll need to add your credit or debt card details to your profile after you sign in. You can pay the tutor directly and securely through the Tutor House website. However, if you do pay outside of the Tutor House site, you will not be protected by our 48 hour Cancelation Policy, nor our Disputes or Refunds Policy, we also do not guarantee that you’ll be protected from fraud. You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly. You pay the tutor online using a debit or credit card, with your booking being secure and private. Our tutors get paid on the same day of the lesson, so please make sure that you’ve confirmed the lesson before your tutor arrives. Of course! We use Stripe as our third party payment platform. Stripe are PCI compliant, so you’re protected from fraud, and can we issued refunds without any cost to you. (But only if you pay through the website, please see our terms).

A

While you think it is faster it elevates your risk and you use lose all the benefits of Tutor House policies. Paying the tutor directly is NOT secure nor protected. If you do pay a tutor outside of the Tutor House website you will not be protected by our 48 Hour Cancelation Policy, our Disputes Policy or our Refund Policy. We also can not protect you from fraud or spam accounts. Before messaging a tutor you are required to sign our Terms and Conditions. Any loss of earning would be considered a legal matter.

If you use the Tutor House website you must complete all bookings within the online platform, including the arrangement of any other services provided by tutors for clients. If you make any arrangement with a tutor that you were introduced to through Tutor House, outside the online platform, either for tuition or payment, you will have broken our terms and conditions. In this case, neither the tutor or customer (parent or student) will be protected or covered, as mentioned above. For more information about payment please refer to our terms and conditions.

A

If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

A

Once you have made the lesson request, you can communicate with the tutor. You can discuss your tuition requirements and the lesson timing with in-app instant messaging. The messaging is instant, so your tutor will receive the notification via both; the website and email. Hence he or she can respond to immediately. You may wish to discuss your preferred lesson time and date, or discuss which exam board you’re studying for A-levels and GCSE’s, or even to discuss specific text and books which you are currently studying. Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.

A

Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

A

After selecting your tutor for your desired material, you can book a lesson right away! Send an inquiry to your selected Tutor and once a tutor accepts your inquiry, it will be registered as an ‘open enquiry’ within your messages tab. This is where you will be able to communicate with our tutors, discuss your requirements, arrange lesson times, and book and pay for lessons. When you submit your booking request, the credit card details provided will be subject to an authorisation hold (to the total amount agreed with the tutor for the cost of the initial session and for any other lessons which will take place thereafter). Not only that, but you can also rate and review your tutor once you’ve had your lesson! Tutor House values your feedback.

Common Entrance Tutors in London

The Common Entrance exams, sat at either 11+ or 13+, are used by senior schools (secondary) to assess pupils’ academic ability. Exams are set and regulated by the Independent Schools Examinations Board (ISEB).Some schools, for example, St Paul’s, Wycombe Abbey and Westminster, have their own admissions test. And while the discrepancy between their tests and the standard Entrance exams are minimal, the difference is about 15%.Many students in the UK sit Common Entrance (11+/13+) exams as part of the admission process into selective secondary schools.

The exam is usually sat at 13 but can be sat at 11 years of age. Respected and competitive public schools require students to take this exam and select students based on their results. A pass rate of 70% is usually required. The entrance exams, which include the 4+, 7+ and 8+ as well as the 11+ and 13+ are highly competitive, they require a great deal of preparation, and parents should start to make plans at least a year in advance or the exams.The first port of call would be to find a tutor or teacher who can support your son or daughter throughout the preparation time. Make sure the tutor know what they are talking about and that they know both the standard ISEB Common entrance exams, and the tailored ones, devised by a number of schools.

Exam papers are set based on a child’s ability and time spent on the specific subject. It wouldn’t be fair to give a child a Latin paper when they have only started to learn the subject the week before. Each of the compulsory exams (English, Maths, and Science) are far more in-depth than the 11+.

Tutoring FAQs

A

If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

Booking and paying for private tuition has never been easier! As a customer, you’ll need to add your credit or debt card details to your profile after you sign in. You can pay the tutor directly and securely through the Tutor House website. However, if you do pay outside of the Tutor House site, you will not be protected by our 48 hour Cancelation Policy, nor our Disputes or Refunds Policy, we also do not guarantee that you’ll be protected from fraud. You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly. You pay the tutor online using a debit or credit card, with your booking being secure and private. Our tutors get paid on the same day of the lesson, so please make sure that you’ve confirmed the lesson before your tutor arrives. Of course! We use Stripe as our third party payment platform. Stripe are PCI compliant, so you’re protected from fraud, and can we issued refunds without any cost to you. (But only if you pay through the website, please see our terms).

If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

The messaging is instant, so your tutor will receive the notification via both; the website and email. Hence he or she can respond to immediately. You may wish to discuss your preferred lesson time and date, or discuss which exam board you’re studying for A-levels and GCSE’s, or even to discuss specific text and books which you are currently studying. Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.

Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.
