I am a qualified primary school teacher with 14 years' experience. Much of my full-time teaching career included leading mathematics in primary schools in South London. Since September 2017 I have worked independently as a Primary Mathematics Specialist, providing after-school home tuition, focussed small-group work in schools, design and delivery of bespoke INSET sessions in schools, demonstration lessons and subject leader support. I am currently fully booked for after-school tuition and am now interested in providing one-to-one or small group maths tuition during school hours to children who are currently home-schooled. My style is very much a practical and visual one with a strong emphasis on engaging investigative maths using a growth mindset approach. My private pupil base has grown steadily through word of mouth, and I have retained all pupils since I began home-tutoring in September 2017. I love gardening and I also have an allotment where I grow my own vegetables. I also spend a lot of time with our very energetic puppy, Basil.

I am a fully qualified teacher with extensive knowledge of the British curriculum! I'm approachable, fun and passionate about teaching. I have recently spent a year teaching English as a foreign language in Thailand (both children and adults!) This was an incredibly exciting experience. I love travelling, reading and meeting new people! I taught English and maths on a daily basis to a class of 30 students through a range of interactive, well- planned and effectively delivered lessons! A typical day would see me teaching all of the subjects in the curriculum but my main focus was on English (grammar, punctuation, creative writing, reading skills) and also primary maths. I gained a wealth of experience in teaching and prepping for government exams and many of my students exceeded expectations for their year group. Additionally, I had a lot of experience in assessments and target setting to ensure my students did the best they could do. I had frequent observations which were always judged 'good' and 'outstanding'. As well as being a class teacher, I have also tutored children 1:1 (ages 6 - 15) focusing on phonics, grammar, creative writing and exam preparation for SATs, GCSEs and A- Levels. My GCSE student was expected to achieve a D in English but achieved a B after tailored tuition. Currently I am tutoring students for their 11+ and entrance exams and their parents are very happy with the progress so far! One of the students was not initially enthused by English, but I love the challenge of making English exciting for the student through the use of film and creative games. After 4 weeks, his enthusiasm and confidence is definitely increasing! I look forward to meeting you! I can provide references, teaching certificates and an up to date police check.

As someone with experience guiding students through activities that range from undergraduate Maths modules to choirs and orchestras, I have the patience and ability needed to connect with my students and find the best way to improve their understanding, tailored to them. My invested interest in both the sciences and the arts allows me to devise new ways of explaining various theories and find a common ground with students. My interests include composing, theatre, golf and rugby.

I formally started teaching at age 17, when I began tutoring after school for children with English as an additional language. Over the ensuing 13 years I have taught individual classes, small groups, and classes of over 30; in homes, in tuition centres, at a refugee camp, and at a university, Al Quds College, in Amman, Jordan. In 2013 I gained a Trinity Cert TESOL qualification. Since then I have taught academic and creative writing at university level, as well as English literature up to GCSE, functional skills English, and both Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning. From April 2016 until January 2018 I taught full time at a tuition centre which caters from children and adults with a diverse range of needs and goals. During this time, I specialized in teaching English from Key Stage 2 up to GCSE. I also focused on teaching Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning for 11+ preparation, and ESOL for both children and adults. I also took on a lead role in creating new teaching and learning resources and materials for the centre. Through Premier Learning I worked with a charity called VSE, which helps young people who have been excluded from school. I was very successful in getting through to these challenging students, and helping them to engage with their studies and achieve significant academic progress. I have a particular love of teaching Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Helping a young person to see shapes in a different way, or to figure out techniques for solving coding problems is immensely satisfying, particularly when they are then able to confidently work through these problems on their own. In the last two years the majority of my students were accepted to their chosen schools - including one young man, from a refugee background, who is now attending Dulwich College on a full scholarship. My greatest expertise is in the teaching of grammar and vocabulary. At the tuition centre I was instrumental in preparing students for Key Stage 2 SATS. I have found that within schools, many teachers have a shaky foundation with which to teach the new SPaG syllabus, so very few of my students, for example, have been taught the difference between the Passive and Active voices in an accessible and memorable way. I have a great love for the workings of language and find it incredibly enjoyable to be able to pass that on to the people I work with. I also worked to improve the literacy levels of children who were new to this country, or had SEN needs or behavioural difficulties. I found it indescribably rewarding to help a young person overcome these barriers and engage with education. I am 30 years old and have been teaching for 13 years. I have two great passions: language, and sharing knowledge. I really love to learn new facts and concepts, or to explore new ideas, and then to discuss and share them with others. I also love the nuts and bolts of how language works, where it comes from, and how we use it. I really enjoy reading, and have very diverse and varied taste in books. I am interested in current affairs and culture, and I love quizzes and trivia games. I grew up overseas, as the child of a diplomat so I have had some very interesting experiences. I now live in Brixton with my sister, her boyfriend, and our cat, Leo. I rollerblade and I have a moped. I have a BA in English Language and Literature and am currently studying for a Masters in English Language and Linguistics.

I have three years’ experience teaching in one-to-one and group settings. I am a Cambridge university graduate with a degree in Classics, and prior to starting my own business, I spent two years teaching English as a foreign language in the French Caribbean and France. Passionate about the French language I am an advanced French speaker and am equally excited by Latin and all things relating to the ancient world. Working as a Latin summer school teacher, I was commended for my ability to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject to my students. I also have experience teaching performing arts, having run my own dance school when I was 16 years’ old. As a mentor, I enjoy developing individuals and set out to help people achieve their best. Having successfully been through 11+, 13+ and 16+ entrance exams, with an excellent academic record, and listed as one of Elle’s top female entrepreneurs under 30, I understand that success first begins with your state of mind. Alongside coaching students through their subjects, I work with them to develop their confidence and instil a belief that “they can”. Subjects I cover: • Latin: all levels to A-level • Classics: all levels to A-level • French: all levels to A-level • Government & Politics: all levels to A-level **** About Me I am a performing arts enthusiast and my debut play has been shortlisted for multiple awards. I train regular to help develop a winner’s mindset and recently completed my first half-marathon. In my free time, I can be found curled up with an ancient philosophy book, eating cake or travelling abroad.

Hi, my name is Mohamed and I'm a graduate from UCL with a degree in Physics and I have 4 years experience tutoring A Level maths. Throughout my work as a tutor, I've noticed that many students lack the understanding of where certain concepts in maths that they learn in school come from, which in turn usually leads them to not being able to pick out important information in questions that they may find in their exams. This sets the foundation of how I approach tutoring. So I always take time to explain what the purpose is of performing a certain mathematical calculation. I also believe that its very important for students to be interested in the subjects that they're learning. I personally still love seeing how maths and physics is used in the real world and this is something I like to share with the students I tutor to help them develop an appreciation for the subject that they're learning.

I have always found that the best teaching should be a conversation between student and tutor, with the student always taking an active role in their learning. I am highly adept at creating lessons, which are varied and engaging but also structured and targeted to reflect the needs of the student. I am committed to promoting active learning, whilst imparting knowledge, creating understanding and improving results.

I have taught music in a variety of situations: privately, one-to-one, in small groups and in a school; to students aged 11 to 60; taught theory, music history, guitar, bass, composition and tutored students taking GCSE and A-level examinations. Above all else I think it is important to help students become engaged with music on a personal level; to help them figure out what areas of music inspire them; and to build a vocabulary by understanding music theory. I believe the best way to find success in any form of music exam is to first find personal enjoyment. My passion is music history and music theory: I can talk about these enthusiastically until the cows come home, and I hope this enthusiasm is infectious. Music became my favourite subject when I was studying it at GCSE level, and my goal is to share the fascination and joy it has brought to me with students, young and old alike. Music remains my favourite subject. I began playing guitar when I was 8, earned my grade 8 distinction from Rockschool when I was 17, an A* in A-level music at 18, and a degree in music from King's College London when I was 22. I am currently studying for a Master's degree in Musicology from King's College London.
