I am a Masters student at KCL, achieving First Class grades. Previously, I have tutored and supported children as a Learning Support Assistant at KS2, having completed an induction course for Primary Teaching assistance. This coupled with my previous role as an Outdoor Education Instructor has resulted in developing my innate ability to build friendly and professional rapports with children, which I have found to conducive to both encouraging confidence and enthusiasm towards learning. Whilst working as an LSA I oversaw the tutoring of a small group of children struggling with timetables, which through patience and positive reinforcement saw their success rate rocket. I also planned and held 1:1 sessions with children who were struggling generally at school. Through the use of engaging, hands-on resources outside of the classroom, I was able to create a fun and motivated environment in which the children were able to move forward in areas of learning that they had found difficult within the pressures of a classroom. This was both rewarding for the children and myself. This was aided by my role as an Outdoor Education Instructor, where I was able to develop skills to motivate children in alternative ways. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, cycling and playing badminton, and generally being outdoors. I also read extensively, non-fiction and fiction alike. I also attend weekly 'Practical Philosophy' classes, where we discuss philosophies from East to West and learn practices and wisdom to create more mindfulness, awareness and empathy in our daily life. In my time as an LSA I found short, mindful exercises to be greatly beneficial to the children I worked with, settling and focusing them on the present activity and helping to calm any anxieties about learning.

Hi, I’m Anton! I am in my first year at Imperial College studying Medical Biosciences. Prior to this I studied Biology, Chemistry and Economics at higher level in the IB. I have experience teaching English at a primary school for one year. My lessons are very much driven by the student: my main goal is to fill in the gaps in the student’s knowledge, clear up any confusion about the topic and reinforce new concepts. Students are always encouraged to ask questions and not feel embarrassed about not understanding something. I am flexible to teach in different ways according to how the student learns best.

Graduated in 2001 and have tutored maths and music, part time, since then. I had a stint teaching elderly people how to use their computers after I graduated. I actually went to the trouble of getting PTTLS, which is the first qualification before a person can teach adults. I have done some voluntary work with various charitable organisations that try to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds improve their academic attainment. The children were between the ages of 7 and 15 so I have some experience of teaching key stages 2, 3 and 4. I led a young band as well so I have taught some musical instruments. I teach keyboard, drums, bass and guitar.

Studying English for GCSE or IGCSE provides students with an excellent grasp of written and spoken English as well as engaging them in the history of English.

Tutoring FAQs

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

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

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

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.

Tutoring FAQs

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.

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.
