Find better tutors, find learning easier
I have being tutoring children for GCSEs and A levels for a number of years and I am currently a Language Teacher for adults and children in the UK. I identify the pupil’s needs and learning style based on the multiple intelligences theory and develop activities in order to increase their interest and confidence in the subject for a successful outcome. I have helped one of my students to reach a B2 / C1 level in Spanish, having started as an A2 ( European Common framework for Languages fluency), in a period of 7 months.
I am a qualified Medical doctor. Registered with the General Medical Council, UK for over 40 years with clean Professional Record. I worked in the field of Anaesthetics through to my career and held Senior Positions in that field. I have a broad teaching experience to medical undergraduates, nursing staff and pars medical staff in Basic Medical Sciences viz. Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology and their applications in the care of the patients. I am perfectly healthy and live a active life. I am retired from active medical practice but want to keep in touch with my profession as well helping some one if they need.
I am an art historian with many years of experience teaching in the UK and Australia. I received my PhD from Bristol University in 1978, on Edouard Manet, irony, and the 'nude'. While I am internationally recognised as a specialist on Manet and 19th century French painting, and have published accordingly (see, e.g., Manet and the Painters of Contemporary Life, World of Art Series, Thames and Hudson, 1996), in more recent years I have moved into what is commonly understood as 'cultural studies': Reaktion Books, London, published my The Devil's Rope: A Cultural History of Barbed Wire (2002) - widely reviewed and praised - and Burning Issues: Fire in Art and the Social Imagination (2011). I have only just completed another book also to be published by Reaktion in late 2017 - on feet and their imaginative promise. I recently retired as Associate Professor, Art History and Theory, from the Faculty of Art /Design at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, where I worked for some 25 years, in the process setting up and delivering innovative courses in French Realism and Impressionism, modernity and postmodernity, and curatorial and exhibition strategies. Looking at images in detail and in context (social, political et al) underpin my approach to teaching. Undergraduates voted me as the Faculty’s most popular lecturer; I was also awarded 'sustained excellence in teaching' by the Dean and Director (Professor Ross Harley).
I hold a PhD degree in Biology. I have about 40 years Teaching Experience of Biology to the Medical, Pharmacy and Biology students. I also acted as Private Biology/Human Biology Tutor for GCSE, A-Level and IB student for about 10 years in UK. Now I restarted Biology as Private Tutor from August 2017, after getting retirement from Saudi Arabia as Professor of Physiology. I have all notes of A-level Biology for AQA and OCR boards. Last year 5 students got A-Grades and One student got B grade. For Degree level students I have all lecture notes for Human Physiology, Biochemistry, Cell Biology & Histology and can teach other aspects of Biomedical sciences, like Genetic, Nutrition, General Pharmacology and General Biology as well. For 1-1 I ask questions from the students and they analyse their answers. If any Mistake and additional explanation is need, I explain them. Similarly when bring Past-Papers, I prefer that students should solve them by themselves, if any mistake especially the "The Required Technical Wordings" I explain them and advised them to use these words. In class I try to ask questions and wait for the replies of the students and give them Important Notes, especially with Important Technical or scientific words that are mandatory to get marks from the examiners.
I have been a teacher for 30+ years, the last twenty years spent teaching learners with Specific Learning Difficulties or as I prefer to call them 'differences'. I hold a Post Graduate Diploma SpLD and an Assessment Practising Certificate (PATOSS). I am also an Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association and as such I diagnose, assess and support students with Dyslexia. AMBDA accredited teachers are recognised as Specialists in Dyslexia/Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD), qualified to conduct specialist diagnostic assessments; Exam Access Arrangements and to deliver individualised Teaching programmes to learners with Dyslexia/SpLD up to and including 18 years of age. I am based in Bury, Lancashire, eight miles north of Manchester and I work within the North West ( Greater Manchester, Lancashire, North Cheshire) Qualifications and Accreditations Professional Membership of the British Dyslexia Association AMBDA Assessment Practising Certificate ( APC ) PATOSS Post Graduate Diploma (Level 7) SpLD Manchester Metropolitan University Full Patoss Membership Professional indemnity insurance Current DBS certificate. I use the Conquering Literacy Programme to support students learning.
I studied in Uruguay, Latin America, both in the public sector and in the private sector. (Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Education in the public sector where I was awarded a diploma in Communications and Journalism). In the private sector, I got formal advanced qualifications in language teaching. I taught in public high schools in Latin America a range of subjects that also included Mathematics, French and English. I combined my duties as teacher in secondary education institutions with a broadcasting and journalism career both in the private sector and in the public sector. Before coming to the United Kingdom where I worked for the British Broadcasting Corporation, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and branches of the Ministry of Defence, I worked as Head of Parliamentary Broadcasting (Coordinator of Broadcasting) in charge of coverage of parliamentary activities for the State Broadcasting System in Uruguay. For the BBC, I performed tasks as producer and presenter of main current affairs, soft current affairs and feature programmes in Spanish langue and also as translator, interpreter and voice coach being involved in digital television. For the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, I translated, presented and produced programmes via the Central Office of Information, London Radio Service, British Satellite News and acted as trainer for diplomats and trade agents via The Centre for International Briefing. In the private sector, I have worked for a wide range of organisations and agencies including but not exclusively the International Maritime Organisation, Videotel Marine, Voice and Script International, Foreign Versions - this has included both British companies, foreign companies and international organisations. I have a wide range of interests including politics, economics, social development and education. I strongly believe that education is a key factor and that having the right motivation is an indispensable ingredient of the recipe for success. What students learn must be seen as meaningful and relevant to their life experiences. There must be a clear sense of purpose for them to be fully engaged in the learning process.
I am a second year undergraduate studying Natural Sciences. I have a strong background in maths and enjoy teaching it. Since the beginning of my A-levels I began tutoring 11+ (mainly Maths and English). For the past 4 years have extended my experience, tutoring a range of children, helping them prepare for their 11+, GCSE, and A-level maths exams. I also tutor Chemistry and Physics at various levels, as I have mentored GCSE groups in these subjects. I am flexible with timings of lessons, and always make my lessons both fun and engaging for my students, allowing them to understand the material and be motivated for self-study and improve their work ethic. In my experience, these have been the strongest skills needed to excel in such subjects, therefore I ensure they are developed in my students too.
I enjoyed a long and satisfying career teaching General Science and especially Physics in Milton Keynes, Luton and Bedford. I spent last 10 years as Head of Science at a successful Bedford comprehensive upper school with a buoyant 6th form and healthy numbers studying Physics, then after retirement continued half time for 8 years at the same school. I continue to dabble in Supply teaching but especially like to help my grandchildren with their studies. For the past few years I have been an Examiner in Physics for the Edexcel Board and will continue this in 2018. I am active and young at heart and feel that I have a sense of humour and understanding and experience of adolescents.
I am a very experienced teacher and have been particularly successful with students who face an additional challenge. I have been a teacher in primary schools where I had additional responsibility for improving reading and also improving the levels of year 6 writers. I am also experienced in secondary teaching - mainstream, challenged students and tutoring. I have taught a range of subjects across the curriculum. Overall I am particularly skilled in both teaching reading and challenging students. I have become experienced in outdoor learning. I managed a provision called farm school where students were involved in animal care, gardening and practical fieldwork in geography and science. We also included a range of art activities based on the environment simultaneously developing art skills in students. All learning took place outdoors and enabled students to develop a more relaxed and positive attitude toward learning. A percentage of our curriculum was developed to improve student's experiences and self-confidence. My timetable had regular enrichment activities to geographical or historical locations stimulating maths and English activities. We also had practical cooking sessions to explore and develop skills and support other areas of the curriculum. We also timetabled mindfulness and sport regularly to better support some of our anxious students. As I have been the head of 3 alternative provisions I have taught a range of subjects and also accessed a range of training to enable me to be more specialized in teaching and to meet students needs. I have recently been teaching GCSE maths and English, art and child care. I have also taught Food Tech but less intensively. Recently, I was appointed by a primary school, which was very interesting, to teach higher level literacy groups, who were more able students and a year 6 literacy class. I was also working with an NQT and in early years to support in the classroom. Despite teaching for over 35 years I have 3 very sporty grown-up children and enjoy gardening and travelling. I have been a football club manager for Harpenden Ladies U12 for 3 seasons and also supported at Brownie camp.
