I have taught for very many years. Now retired from the Finance/Investment profession, I write fiction for children and young adults. Teaching has always been part of my life - for my children and those of some friends. Also, I have been in formal tutoring for over 5 years, covering primary, secondary and some university students. I appreciated the privilege of success with many, including a determined but dyslexic young learner. One of my starting principles is that learning need NOT be terrifying. Even Algebra can be fun! The Student's mindset and experience are always key: I try to support the approach of the school (especially with Primary and Secondary) to avoid confusion for the learner. However, in the effort to lead the student to realise that nothing is impossible, I try to explore confidence-boosting steps! Practical examples are always critical, for example, past papers, of course. Or possibly, where necessary, a ‘mini role-play’ of sections in a play for the sake of realism, the student’s self-immersion and encouragement.

I am a friendly and hardworking student who is currently studying Biomedical Sciences at King's College London University which compliments my passion for mathematics and the sciences. Studying a degree composed of biology and chemistry has allowed me to further increase and strengthen my knowledge in these subjects, allowing me to be very knowledgeable on the contents taught in both GCSE and A Level Sciences. Through tutoring, I aim to provide great confidence to all students and help them to enjoy the subjects that they may find challenging. Since I appreciate that every individual has a different style of learning, I aim to adapt my teaching methods to suit each individual in order to provide the best experience and to deliver the content effectively. I am highly aware of the course structure for the subjects I tutor as well as exam techniques and the different effective approaches to learn content that students often find challenging. My style of teaching is to use diagrams, past papers questions and to deliver engaging sessions to make sure that students have grasped key concepts and are confident enough to tackle an exam style question. For mathematics, I am aware of many methods and different approaches which can be used to simplify difficult questions which are beneficial and time-saving skills that are useful in exams. Working in retail for almost 2 years has made me a very calm, understanding and helpful person which are important qualities all tutors should have. I give great importance to every individual that I teach and will aim to deliver the best assistance in helping each individual to achieve their target grades.

I am a qualified medical student from King's College London. I have completed my medical degree and in addition successfully completed a Medical Humanities degree within a year at the University of Bristol. As a highly motivated medical student I enjoy a very successful academic career resulting from my use of well honed study skills. Medicine requires me to demonstrate particular strengths in maths and the sciences, however I have also used my excellent communication skills to present new medical concepts to my colleagues. I have regularly led, set up and organised practical study groups to improve peer skills in objective clinical examinations. I have also taught across a broad range of ability levels: spending two years as an instructor at a swimming club for people with disabilities meant I needed to be positive and encouraging, using my initiative to create fun games and exercises, as well as sympathetic in acknowledging their limitations. As a tutor I am able to share my pragmatic approach to successful study. This includes: the importance of my commitment to a structured learning framework, ensuring study time is a prioritised but integrated part of life, also allowing for the pursuit of other valuable interests; access to relevant learning material targeted to personal requirements. My strong people skills, combined with a passion for learning and motivational, sympathetic approach mean I am to help tutor others to engage more successfully with their studies. For those interested in pursuing medicine as a career, I can also offer coaching in attaining acceptance into University to study it as a degree. This includes (but is not limited to) advice on relevant work experience and personal statements, to applications and interview technique. From my experience, I can also offer insight into what it is like to study medicine, and can answer any questions one may have on the course and potential career options.

Understanding and getting ahead of these key concepts is crucial to succeeding during primary education. Our tutors are all DBS-checked and interviewed by us and primary specialists. A number of our primary English tutors are also former primary teachers or teaching assistants. This means they have excellent backgrounds in what they bring to their language lessons.

They will also work closely with the student to develop a personalised learning plan for them.Our tutors are able to teach primary English online or in person, and can assist the student with their English homework or simply help improve their organisation and study skills.

English also features heavily throughout the entrance examination process. Whether the student is applying for a school at 7+, 11+, 13+ or 16+, they will have to prove their propensity in English. Being prepared for the English entrance examination, at any level, is important to school entry.

Our Common Entrance English tutors have all had several years tutoring experience. They work closely with students to get them into their first-choice schools. These specialist exams require extensive amount of preparation, and often have several stages, such as the Commons Pre-Test, interviews and assessment days, and the Common Entrance exams themselves. With that in mind, being prepared for each component is hugely important.

Tutor House tutors have helped students attain places at Eton College, Harrow School, Stowe School, Habedashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School, Westminster School, City of London, Wycombe Abbey and many more. We understand how competitive the independent school entry process can be, which is why we only work with the best Common Entrance tutors across London and the UK.

Tutoring FAQs

A

Finding a tutor with Tutor House is fast, simple, and secure. Our online tutoring platform helps you find, message and book tutors within a few clicks. Simply enter your required subject with the level and your location, and our website will return a list of recommended tutors. You can then filter these tutors according to experience, price, and recommendation. Each tutor has a detailed profile with a personal statement and details about their qualifications and teaching experience.

A

Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer. You can cancel your booking without incurring any charges as long as it’s cancelled at least 48 hours before the lesson is due to take place. However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

A

Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

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

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.

A

By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

A

Tutor House endeavours to ensure that both tutors and clients have the best possible experience with our service. We’re always here to help, so do reach out and contact us. If you ever have unresolved disputes with your tutor we will assist you in reaching a mutual agreement. We will do our utmost to try and resolve all disputes; however we may not be in a position to resolve every dispute. Please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

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. Tutor House is designed to introduce excellent tutors to customers putting tutors in touch with students and learners. We help and support students to get the best out of their learning experience. 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

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.

I have taught for very many years. Now retired from the Finance/Investment profession, I write fiction for children and young adults. Teaching has always been part of my life - for my children and those of some friends. Also, I have been in formal tutoring for over 5 years, covering primary, secondary and some university students. I appreciated the privilege of success with many, including a determined but dyslexic young learner. One of my starting principles is that learning need NOT be terrifying. Even Algebra can be fun! The Student's mindset and experience are always key: I try to support the approach of the school (especially with Primary and Secondary) to avoid confusion for the learner. However, in the effort to lead the student to realise that nothing is impossible, I try to explore confidence-boosting steps! Practical examples are always critical, for example, past papers, of course.

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.

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.

By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.
