Find better tutors, find learning easier
I am a highly experienced and friendly 11+, GCSE and A-Level tutor. I have been preparing students for exams for nearly a decade and have learnt what how to help each individual succeed. I have also taken a lot of exams myself during my career in NHS Child and Adolescent psychotherapy and research so I know from my own experience what it takes to excel. My experience of working as an NHS Child and Adolescent psychotherapist means that I am highly experienced in working with teenagers who are finding it hard to focus or are feeling lost or demotivated in relation to their work. I have tutored throughout my career, working with primary school students, and preparing students for 11+ and 13+ entry, GCSEs, A-Levels and university exams. I have an excellent track record of supporting students to raise their grades for public exams. I really enjoy working with children from Key stage 1 all the way up to degree level. I have a great deal of experience working with children who have Special Educational needs, ADHD and ASC. I have also worked as a school based English, Psychology, History and Politics GCSE and A-Level tutor. I have led full courses in English GCSE, R.E. GCSE and Psychology A-Level. I have much experience of supporting students to write UCAS statements. I have been trained by University admissions teams to know how students can get Russell Group university offers. I am an experienced proofreader and have worked with many people to help them improve their written English for undergraduate and postgraduate level submissions. I have an excellent track record of supporting students to improve their performance at 11+ and to raise their grades, often by multiple grade boundaries. My experience has taught me that three factors are crucial to helping students excel: Firstly, the student must have complete clarity about what course content they need to learn and what exam technique they need to use to get them the maximum marks. Secondly, students must feel interested in, and connected to, the course content they are learning. My own enjoyment of my studies allowed me to get a First in my degree and to attain 297/300 in my Psychology A-Level and 295/300 in my Politics A-Level, and so I always work to foster a real connection between students and what they are learning. Lastly, my experience of working as a Child and Adolescent psychotherapist also informs my approach to tutoring. I believe that child development and emotional factors like anxiety can really affect how well a student is doing. I have seen many times that if these difficulties can be understood, the barriers to a student`s success can be removed.
I am an energetic and creative Masters-educated tutor with a passion for teaching. I started tutoring while I was in high school and focused specifically on CIE A-Levels as well as UCAS and Personal Statement advice. I successfully secured places in some of London's top universities and can help other students do so. I have 4 years experience tutoring and believe that my strength lies in forging personal connections with my tutees which helps me better understand their needs, not so long ago I was their peer meaning I can thoroughly emphasise with their concerns and struggles. To see the best results, I believe that study programmes must be tailored to each student, with realistic and achievable milestones and goals being outlined. So far, the students I tutored attained or surpassed their academic goals, achieving A's in the A-Level exams I tutored them for and securing places at top UK universities.
Hello, I’m a graduate of Brunel University with a BSc in International Business. I teach Maths, Economics and Business studies and have taught over 100 students covering ages 11-21. I’ve been teaching for the last four years throughout my studies. I am young, fun and friendly, keeping my lessons relatable and engaging for my students. I focus on applying knowledge to exam technique as this can sometimes be the most challenging part of the course! I make sure to spend plenty of time showing students how to plan answers to achieve maximum marks - I have a brilliant structure which students can easily use for any essay based questions. I tailor my tuition to suit the student, maintaining a comfortable pace whilst challenging the student to reach their full potential and build confidence in the subject. It's important to keep lessons fun so I use a range of activities and "real life" examples relating to the course to make sure the student can enjoy learning the subject as much as possible.
Hi, I'm Jacob, a graduate with a first class degree in History and a strong background in Maths with an A* at A-Level and a prize in Further Mathematics. My History experience focuses on modern imperial history and I have a strong foundation of many of the GCSE and A-Level History topics. At heart I'm a very curious person with a strong interest in all of the subjects I tutor. I’ve always found it rewarding to be able to help others; over the years I’ve gravitated towards teaching roles, whether it be tuition in school or coaching on the sports field. During my GCSE years, I offered one-to-one Maths mentoring to struggling students aged between 12 and 14. One a weekly basis I spent fifty minute periods working through problem questions and explaining core concepts with pupils. Whilst at University, I also spent time tutoring and providing university admissions assistance. I am proud to say that many of the students that I tutored achieved their subject and university admissions goals. It’s inspiring to be able to help someone else achieve their goals, so when I tutor I aim to take pupils through what they have accomplished, and what could be improved. This way, students become more aware of how they have developed over the course of the lessons, hopefully adding to confidence in their abilities.

I am a trained professional physicist, having studied at both undergraduate and graduate levels at two of the worlds leading universities, and currently working as a radiotherapy physicist in an NHS hospital cancer treatment centre. I have 6 years experience in tutoring in physics and mathematics one-to-one and in small groups, with students of primary school age through to university undergraduates. I also have one year of experience working as a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) instructor to Japanese students. As a professional physicist I am highly skilled and knowledgeable not only in physics, but also mathematics, statistics, computer programming and IT systems. I take a keen interest in all areas of science, and can confidently tutor in all of these subjects up to A-level. I have always been fascinated by science, and as a high school student was initially interested in studying medicine. Unfortunately, I found myself feeling faint at the sight of blood and guts, and doubts as to my suitability for the profession began to creep into my mind. I had an amazing physics teacher at A-level, who inspired me to instead pursue physics at university. I excelled in my undergraduate studies and then progressed on to PhD level overseas, where I undertook fundamental research in experimental nuclear physics. This involved smashing atoms together using a particle accelerator in order to understand the properties of nuclear matter, reactions such as nuclear fusion and nuclear fission, as well as to synthesise new 'superheavy' chemical elements that do not exist in nature! Funnily enough, my experience working with particle accelerators, electronics, and radiation detector technology lends itself very handily to working in the healthcare sector, both in the treatment of cancer using high energy X-rays, and in various diagnostic imaging techniques using both ionising and non-ionising radiation. So I have now come more or less full circle from my high school ambitions to work in medicine, except now I get to avoid the blood and guts! During my GCSE years, in fact I really didn't enjoy physics due to poor teaching at school, and strongly considered not taking the subject at A-level- I only did so reluctantly in the belief that it would aid my application for medicine. Without the excellent teaching that was provided by my A-level teacher, I am sure I would have followed a very different and perhaps less satisfying path. When I tell people I am a physicist, I often receive replies of 'Oh wow! You must be so smart!' Many people struggle with physics and maths in school, and are highly intimidated by the subject. What if I told you that physics, based upon the fundamental rules of nature, is in fact the easiest subject in science? It is my goal as a tutor to transform their perception of physics from an intimidating subject that must be endured throughout school and then never thought of again, to a way of thinking and a toolbox of skills that will be useful for their future in many aspects of life. In tutoring in my subject I hope that I can instill a curious interest in the fundamental aspects of nature such as my favourite teacher did for me, as well as keeping my own understanding of physical principles and teaching skills sharp for use in my science career.
I am a respiratory physiologist working in paediatric medicine with a masters degree in Human and Applied Physiology from King’s College London. I also possess a first-class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Between my two degrees I travelled to different parts of world to places such as the USA and Cameroon. This gave me the opportunity to learn about different cultures and a stronger ability to overcome challenges when they presented themselves. I am looking for tutoring opportunities across London in zones 1-6. While doing my undergraduate and masters, I have developed an in-depth knowledge and understanding of several scientific areas, with a focus on physiology. I believe that I can impart my enthusiasm for education and science on younger students and help them succeed academically. My mission is to make the goals that students are striving for a reality and see the success they have earnt take them to their chapter. I am very motivated, driven individual and I will work to ensure each session is beneficial bringing the goals set out closer to fruition.
