Hi, my name is Luke and I am a graduate from UCL with a degree in Math. I have been building up my math tutoring experience throughout my studies since A-level. I helped my friends, classmates and family members understand complex or new mathematical terms and concepts by simplifying and explaining the logic behind them. When people approach me with math problems, I always think from their perspective to find out the gap in their understanding. Then I can better help them in learning and comprehending the logic and principles of maths. Furthermore, whenever I learn a new operator or concept, such as Laplacian operator or divergence, I prefer to understand their geometrical meaning and intuitive interpretation. I believe this approach will inspire my candidates and stimulates their interests in maths and physics. Regarding exams, practice to apply the logic and principles to solve problems is indispensable. I am good at summarising techniques and practical methods to help others crack maths problems. Practice using these methods with me is easy to get started and to follow in their studies. By understanding maths and practising solving problems with me, tutees can improve their proficiencies in solving maths problems and therefore improving performance at exams. Patience is one of my biggest strengths, and I tailor my lessons to the needs and personality of each tutee and help them succeed. I have a natural passion for teaching and tutoring interactively and intuitively.

Tutoring sciences and maths, teaching music at Gordonstoun International Summer School and industry-based mentoring give a fresh perspective to adapting to different student styles. Developing confidence and knowledge simultaneously gives students the best chance of achieving their full potential. My tutoring style is completely student orientated, focusing on a positive attitude towards study and building a rounded knowledge base. After studying Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London, I worked internationally as a field engineer in the energy industry (Mexico, Argentina and the UAE). Understanding where education can take you is an important part of maximising students potential and ensuring students achieve their goals. One of my previous students struggled to get through the mental block of 'being bad at chemistry'. We worked through this allowing her to approach her GCSE-level exam with a confident attitude and achieve the grade she deserved. Teaching violin while at home in Scotland, I worked with students from 6 years old upwards, often developing their playing from complete beginners to having a good grasp of musical notation and playing simple tunes. With a diploma in violin performance and having taken part in and led orchestras while growing up, I am passionate about helping others progress and grow this skill. As well as a love of music, I enjoy tennis, squash and hockey in my spare time. Experience - Tutoring maths and science (students between 15-18 years) - Violin teaching (beginner to advanced students, age 6+) - Vocal specialist and staff assistant, Gordonstoun International Summer School - Industry-based mentoring, working with trainees to develop their skills and knowledge

Film and Media expert offering support across a number of subjects. I'm an active film producer and film theorist who takes on some private tutoring work on the side. As such, I tend to only have one or two clients at a time, meaning my time with you is focused and catered towards your individual needs. I started my career in film after completing an undergraduate degree in Media Production at Northumbria University in Newcastle. Before graduating, I was already working in film production offices in the city and delivering work which won awards globally, including a BAFTA nominated feature film, I Am Nasrine (2012, dir Tina Gharavi). My experience has also seen me working with the delivery teams as part of large British film festivals, including Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest and now London Short Film Festival. Over the last 3 years I have supplemented this work by offering my services as a tutor, specialising in media studies and film. I have worked with private clients of all ages: either to support a young learner in their understanding of filmmaking skills, film history or perhaps the basics of animation, to augment a college or academy application; or working with adult learners, delivering more targeted sessions on specifics such as video editing, script writing or project management. Now based in South London, and shortly to complete an MA in Film & Screen Studies from Goldsmiths University of London, I am keen to share my expertise with new clients via Tutorhouse. I'm happy to discuss possibilities and opportunities with anyone whose curious to know more, and create a tuition plan which works best for you

Graduating from South Hampstead High School with 4 A*s at A-Level, I then went on to study physics at Oxford where I graduated with a Masters degree. From 2010 I have tutored privately for local families and last year began working for a tutoring firm. I have developed a passion for helping students achieve the best grades they can, while helping to spark their interest through describing my experience with academia. I take on students of all ages and levels up to 1st year undergraduate degree. I have helped students successfully get places at top London schools and achieve their best grades at GCSE and A Level. I also have experience coaching students for applications for the top universities including taking STEP papers for Cambridge entrance, Physics aptitude test for Oxford entrance as well as helping them prepare for the interview process at universities such as Imperial College London, and Oxbridge. My focus is on helping students organise and structure their work in such a way that they feel on-top of the subject. Achieving good grades is as much about exam technique as it is about learning the subject. With that said, I do not encourage teaching students to solely pass exams as is done in schools all over the country. I encourage my students to think beyond the syllabus and expose them to ideas not covered in the exams to help them better understand the context behind what they are learning.

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.

My main aim when teaching is simply to ensure that a student should leave my lessons with a greater knowledge and understanding of the subject and an increased confidence in their own abilities. 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.
