I have tutored in mathematics since I was studying my GCSE's. At the time it was the way I revised. Now it's a way to reconnect with my favourite subject and pass along my knowledge. I love maths, and I want to share this with those that need my help. I have found that sometimes, when one is learning maths in school, they find it frustrating, boring or dull because the teacher isn't teaching them individually, to their learning style, so they don't understand it. They give up. I want to help students find the fun in maths, or at least help them understand it. In class, there is no time to ask why numbers act in a certain way, it's all about memorising the rules. But sometimes, people don't learn it that way or can't remember it that way. I've always asked the 'why' which means I can explain it when a student needs it. With each person I've tutored, I've done it slightly differently. Not everyone has the same learning styles. Some students can't concentrate for too long, one of the students I had was like this. I broke the lesson up, gave them a game, talked about something irrelevant, just to give them a break so that they can work more effectively. Another student was really enthusiastic, we would work for 2 hours non-stop. She learnt through diagrams and colours, so I spent a little extra time getting her to note it down in a way she would remember, or I would explain with different colour pens and highlighters. Other students just wanted different explanations to things. I like to cater to the student so they get the most out of the lesson. And if there is something even I don't understand fully, I go away and learn it, understand it, so I can teach it properly in the next lesson.

I am a 3rd year student at Oxford University and obtained an A* in GCSE maths and an A* in A Level maths in just one year. Whilst my academic attainment is evidence of my capabilities as a tutor, being a good tutor is about more than this. As someone who has had a very varied set of educational experiences - from underperforming Inner City London schools to the best university in the world - I have come to know which teaching methods work and which don't, and have also come to appreciate the power of the former. Given this appreciation, I know that a good tutor can make a real difference and I am passionate about being one myself. I am proud that my approach, which includes being as engaging and interactive as possible, has yielded excellent results. I have a wealth of experience tutoring maths, spanning 5 years, and have taught across age ranges and ability levels. I started out tutoring with Explore Learning, which runs many tutoring centres across the UK. I tutored students between the ages of 4 and 14 maths and English in groups of up to 6 children. I have also privately tutored maths to several students and volunteered as a maths tutor with Action Tutoring, tutoring up to GCSE level. In my spare time I enjoy photography, especially urban photography and like to go around London increasing my portfolio. As someone who has competed at the national Level in athletics, I am also very sporty. Along with athletics I enjoy playing football and basketball.

Tutoring FAQs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

I have tutored in mathematics since I was studying my GCSE's. At the time it was the way I revised. Now it's a way to reconnect with my favourite subject and pass along my knowledge. I love maths, and I want to share this with those that need my help. I have found that sometimes, when one is learning maths in school, they find it frustrating, boring or dull because the teacher isn't teaching them individually, to their learning style, so they don't understand it. They give up. I want to help students find the fun in maths, or at least help them understand it. In class, there is no time to ask why numbers act in a certain way, it's all about memorising the rules. But sometimes, people don't learn it that way or can't remember it that way. I've always asked the 'why' which means I can explain it when a student needs it. With each person I've tutored, I've done it slightly differently. Not everyone has the same learning styles. Some students can't concentrate for too long, one of the students I had was like this. I broke the lesson up, gave them a game, talked about something irrelevant, just to give them a break so that they can work more effectively. Another student was really enthusiastic, we would work for 2 hours non-stop. She learnt through diagrams and colours, so I spent a little extra time getting her to note it down in a way she would remember, or I would explain with different colour pens and highlighters. Other students just wanted different explanations to things. I like to cater to the student so they get the most out of the lesson. And if there is something even I don't understand fully, I go away and learn it, understand it, so I can teach it properly in the next lesson.

I am a 3rd year student at Oxford University and obtained an A* in GCSE maths and an A* in A Level maths in just one year. Whilst my academic attainment is evidence of my capabilities as a tutor, being a good tutor is about more than this. As someone who has had a very varied set of educational experiences - from underperforming Inner City London schools to the best university in the world - I have come to know which teaching methods work and which don't, and have also come to appreciate the power of the former. Given this appreciation, I know that a good tutor can make a real difference and I am passionate about being one myself. I am proud that my approach, which includes being as engaging and interactive as possible, has yielded excellent results. I have a wealth of experience tutoring maths, spanning 5 years, and have taught across age ranges and ability levels. I started out tutoring with Explore Learning, which runs many tutoring centres across the UK. I tutored students between the ages of 4 and 14 maths and English in groups of up to 6 children. I have also privately tutored maths to several students and volunteered as a maths tutor with Action Tutoring, tutoring up to GCSE level. In my spare time I enjoy photography, especially urban photography and like to go around London increasing my portfolio. As someone who has competed at the national Level in athletics, I am also very sporty. Along with athletics I enjoy playing football and basketball.

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.

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.

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.

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.
