Find better tutors, find learning easier
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 am currently in the second year of my PhD in pure mathematics at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (Imperial, UCL, and King's). Before that, I was an undergraduate at the University of Queensland, Australia, where I earned a Bachelor of Science with Honours Class I with an extended major in Mathematics. I also have a Diploma of Languages majoring in German, and spent a year of my undergraduate degree studying in Munich. As an undergraduate, I gained a variety of experience from both private tutoring and teaching in university environments for students ranging from high school to undergraduate level. Before I began university I did a gap year working for a prep school in Surrey, where I primarily helped students between the ages of 8 and 13 who were struggling in class and/ or being disruptive. I also helped prepare students for the 11 and 13+ exams. I believe that mathematics is an under-appreciated discipline, and I have a passion for teaching maths in an intuitive and relatable way that applies real-world examples. I have ample experience in communicating complicated ideas to students of all abilities and in guiding students to their own understanding.
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 am an enthusiastic tutor from London, currently reading Ancient History at King's College London and predicted to graduate with First Class Honours. I have experience in a range of subjects, focusing on humanities, Russian and English as well as being able to offer help with interviews, CVs, cover letters, UCAS and public speaking. During my two years of tutoring, my students have achieved As and A*s in all of their exams and have been to gain places on various prestigious internships. During my time at university, I have secured internships at Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg LP, Sabre Fund Management ( a London based hedge fund). I was the best novice speaker and the semi-finalist of London's largest debating competition - SOAS IV, hold committee positions at various societies, including my university's investment fund. I am responsible and committed to helping others reach their academic potential and grow.
I attained a B.A. Hons Degree in English Literature and Language (2:1) from the modern Humanities-focused, Newman University in Birmingham (established in 2013). As a result, I excelled in my degree and have learned from the best. This has instilled within me the need and passion to continue my learning in everything English Literature and everything English Language, which I also intend to instil within my students. I have a lot of experience, from working with little primary school toddlers in France, to working closely tutoring a group of University students last year. This year I have mainly been working with A Level students though who I teach varies - I like variety. My aim to guide my students into achieving the high grades is unwavering and my enjoyment of the subject tends to be infectious. Furthermore, I have SEN experience with a Higher Distinction qualification in Advanced Special Educational Needs. I am also currently studying TESOL. I have experience in News Journalism and writing in various forms from poetry to Science Fiction. I am completely up to date with the new specifications, across all the exam boards, have created many resources for them and have inspired confidence in my students due to my in depth knowledge of them. I believe that a positive mind renders positive results so I will always be the student's mentor, coach and personal cheerleader.
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 am a graduate of Biochemistry from the University of Bristol, who can offer tuition in all GCSE sciences as well as A-Level or IB Biology. Last year I tutored with a charity, which involved teaching GCSE maths on a weekly basis to pupils at a local secondary school. This experience taught me how to adapt a lesson to the audiences capabilities. Additionally, whilst with the charity I gained experience tutoring one-to-one. I found working with these students very rewarding, and it has inspired me to continue outside of the school environment. Having studied Biochemistry for three years alongside my enthusiasm for teaching, I believe I have the experience and the ability to provide excellent tuition.
Hi, I’m Dharani! I am a third year medical student at King’s College London. I have been a tutor for 3 years, teaching maths and science up to A-Level. In addition to my 3 years of tutoring, I have experience as school mentor, helping a group of Year 12 students with their AS Biology during lunchtimes. The Sessions: Before the session, it would be helpful if you could let me know what you would like to cover. At the start, I will give you a topic overview and then we can do some exam questions to find out which areas need more work and to develop a good exam technique. I will try to be enthusiastic and make the session enjoyable so that you will be more engaged and therefore grasp the concepts better. I'm applying to medical school - can you help me? Yes! I have been through the application process and am familiar with how intense and demanding it can be! I hope I can impart some of my knowledge and advice to reduce the stresses of your university application and hopefully enable you to go into the process feeling a little more clued up.
I recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in Classics. My degree focussed on Ancient Greek and Latin Literature, and included papers in ancient history and philosophy. Before going to university, I gained a Distinction at Art Foundation at the Royal Drawing School. I completed my A levels at Westminster School, gaining 3 A*s in French, Latin and Philosophy, and one A** in English Literature; the pre-U courses offered at Westminster allowed us to achieve a grade higher than possible in the A level. I am currently living in Hackney and looking to split my time between creative projects and academic pursuits such as research and tutoring. I have had various jobs tutoring during the last few years. While on foundation, I tutored three young children (8-13) beginners Latin. In Oxford, I taught one student in French and Latin for Common Entrance and sometimes travelled back to London to teach another student for his Latin A-Level. In terms of approach to teaching, I believe that it's important to inspire an independent passion for the subject in question, whether this is Latin language, English literature, Fine Art or French. This is achieved through engaging with the more routine aspects (for example, grammar rules, vocabulary), while helping the student understand how these essential aspects will prove important to the grander project of reading, understanding and interpreting. I learned Latin in my own time with a tutor, because my school did not offer it as a subject; at Oxford I had to learn Ancient Greek to sufficient standard in about a year, so that I understand the manifold difficulties of engaging with an ancient language and its complicated grammar. I hope to use the skills I have gained through this experience when teaching students, helping them to overcome challenges with creativity and care.
