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 conducting 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.

Chemistry and Biology tutor, 2007- present Deputy Head of Chemistry 2013-present I am currently teaching at an outstanding comprehensive/sixth form college based in Merton, London, for the past year and half. My previous teaching experience has included volunteering and team teaching at a top ten grammar school in England.

I have strong teaching values and believe in identifying and addressing the individual needs of each student and showing students techniques and methodologies to break down problems in a logical way. To ensure a successful outcome for students I focus heavily on helping students with exam technique and terminology. I believe that academic confidence of a student is key integral part of their success and I am keen to work with them to improve this confidence in a varied and dynamic way.

I am a Dutch national and have been living in the UK for the past 7 years. I'm bilingual (Dutch/English) and also proficient in German. Currently, I am a Neurobiology PhD student at King's College London. My previous University eduction includes psychology and neuroscience. Throughout my studies I have gained extensive knowledge of general biology, statistics, psychology and neuroscience all of which I am still required to use on a daily basis. Throughout my studies and working at the university as a Research Assistant I have gained experience in mentoring other students and staff on both practical applications of knowledge (such as statistics packages) and the general ideas behind the research we conduct. When it comes to teaching I am a firm believer in a student based approach and believe that learning is not only the knowing of the correct answer and/or facts but more importantly understanding how to reach the correct answer.

I have hundreds of hours of experience in assisting students with the achievement of goals, and I'm always looking to strengthen my tutoring further by attending training courses and seminars. The main drive behind my desire to tutor is being involved in meaningful work - to help students surpass their expectations and inspire in them the same fervour I have for my subjects. Since recently graduating from MA Contemporary Literature and Culture at Birkbeck, I have been keen to disseminate my passion for textual analysis, creative writing, and everything relating to the English language. Besides this, I am proficient in Film and Media Studies (as supported by my undergraduate degree in Contemporary Media Practice) as well as Psychology and Religious Studies. I am a highly empathetic listener and I believe that good tutoring is about creating a bespoke experience to best suit the needs of each student.

My name is Ayoade, and I am a programme delivery manager with the National Citizen Service. I have a wealth of tutoring experience starting as an IB student at boarding school, spanning throughout my university years at King’s College London and beyond. I began tutoring as an IB student during sixth-form, where I assisted after-school homework sessions with the younger boarders, aged between 11 and 13. It was here I developed an interest in sharing knowledge with others, and maximising results for individuals who may otherwise struggle to convert their study techniques into desired grades. I also found that assisting my fellow students with translating their ideas into well-structured essays helped me develop my own understanding of my subjects, and I was able to achieve 36 points. I went on to study International Politics at King’s College London, and formally tutored IB History, IB English, and Research methods and Essay-writing at university level from my 2nd year. I tutored 6 university students studying subjects ranging from Social Policy to Business Management, all of whom achieved 2:1 or 1st class grades in their essays. I graduated with a 1st Class, and I believe that the responsibility of creating value for other students was a significant source of motivation in staying on top of my studies and inspired by the course content. Last year, I moved to Lagos, Nigeria for a year of National Youth Service, during which I worked as an associate consultant for a marketing and strategy consulting firm. Even though this was a full-time job, I tutored IGCSE English as a first language, for preparation to sit entrance examinations for UK boarding schools and both students passed all entrance exams. I also tutored 4 university students in research methods, again ensuring at least a 2:1 grade in dissertations. I am a smart, driven, and enthusiastic person passionate about creating value for students and clients, and I enjoy the challenge of mastering any material I am faced with in order to deliver that information in the best way possible. Over the years, I have developed the ability to adjust communication styles, listen effectively, and respect individual paces and learning styles to suit subjects. My experience as an associate consultant also sharpened my ability to deliver tangible results at pace, and think creatively to deliver the best solution. I would like to continue to challenge myself to help students of varying ages and backgrounds to realise their potential through dynamic learning techniques and high energy. This in turn, will prepare me for an eventual career in education consulting and policy development for education at a macro-level.

I am a graduate from Trinity College, Cambridge, having achieved my Bachelors degree in History (2:1). I am currently based in London, undertaking a Master's degree. I have a wide and varied experience with students of all ages and abilities and have spent time working in both primary and secondary schools. My main aim is always to help students find an interest in their subject matter, which leads to them translating this interest through their examinations. My specialism lies in Medieval and Early Modern History, however, I am very well equipped to help students with any written work that their course may demand (including GCSE, AS and A2 coursework). I also have experience with certain modern historical periods and have been assisting students with theses periods for some time. I also offer Oxbridge tutoring, help with Personal Statements, UCAS support and exam technique help. Further, I also offer help with Fine Art, a subject I fell in love with at the early age and will be studying next year at the Royal College of Art. I believe that my enthusiasm and experience, coupled with my academic ability enables me to be an able tutor.

I utilise my lateral thinking skills as well as positive reinforcement to help students achieve. I have been tutoring for some years and have helped students improve from a predicted fail to the higher grades. I motivate students by encouraging them to embrace topics they seem weaker in and assist them to develop areas of strengths at the same time. I am passionate about tutoring and I adapt my teaching based on the personality and learning styles of each of my students. I use analogy and daily practical examples to help students relate to subjects taught which helps them to fully appreciate the subject and proceed to excel.

I am also a fully qualified Functional Movement Specialist (health and fitness). As a tutor I am flexible in my approach towards each student. Depending on their learning style and strengths and weaknesses in each subject area, I employ a variety of methods to facilitate learning, memorization and a critical thinking approach. I regularly give students opportunities to summarize what they have learnt and test their understanding and memorization of information, in order to foster deeper learning and memorization. I believe strongly that a positive, encouraging and supportive tutoring approach is critical to a students success and also like to make some time to get to know each student and chat generally about their interests.

Contact me to get a head start preparing your portfolio, and get motivated by working on a project outside of school. I also offer help with Art and Design study from GCSE level and up, and literacy skills for primary school age children. However big or small your goal, I would love to support you in achieving it.

Portfolio preparation for art and design university entrance is my speciality. In the last year my clients have gained places on top art courses at Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths, Brighton, Nottingham Trent and Kingston. I am committed to education and the arts, and since graduating from the University of the Arts London in 2014 Prior to becoming a tutor I was employed as Archives and Special Collections Assistant at University of the Arts London, supporting teaching, learning and research for students of a wide range of academic abilities and needs. This role included giving workshops to students on a one-to-one basis, and in larger groups. I was also a guest tutor for the MA Culture, Criticism and Curation course at Central Saint Martins. Before my role at the university was made full time I was able to volunteer with the charity Beanstalk as a Reading 321 Helper, supporting three children twice weekly to improve their literacy. These were children in Primary School who had been identified as being behind with their reading skills. I have also been involved with The Girls Network Mentoring Scheme. If your child is struggling with literacy, and needs to find enjoyment in reading, contact me. Coming from a creative, academic background I appreciate that everyone has their own style of learning. I like to engage children with their own creativity in order to assist them with problem solving and finding their unique way to reach their academic goals.

I am a German native speaker with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Master of Arts in Theatre Pedagogy. Further, I hold a Montessori Certificate. I taught and examined the German GCSE in the 2017 examinations with a very good track record and have over six years of experience. Personally, I want to create a safe and inspiring room, for the academic and personal development of the students to enable them to reach their full potential. The Montessori teaching methods allow for a very personal approach to teaching and learning in all subjects and I can model exercises on the personal and education needs of every tutee. Material, which is created specifically for the individual, facilitates greater academic advancement and the development of personal confidence. My tutoring of German and preparation for GCSE/A-Level include the full extent of the four assessment criteria: Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading. For every tutee I create my own exercises and material, which I base on the level and skill of the student and which follow the requirements from the examination boards. For over five years as an after school supervisor and teaching assistant in Germany I also was responsible for the supervision of one classroom for the homework and daily revision to aid the students in their learning and to provide additional assistance. In this capacity I supported students across all subjects with a particular focus on English, German, History and Math. The students attended Year 5 to 10 and all of them achieved very good results in their respective exams. Through this time I developed a great capacity for empathy and a understanding of those students struggling with learning a foreign language and the challenges they face. My work as a Drama teacher for Years 5 and 6 involved the teaching of the basics of acting, theatre theories and to provide a fundamental understanding of Drama. I supported the students to develop their own understanding of stagecraft and created a room for the discovery of their personal creativity and confidence which also involved the creation of my own exercises to improve body language and speech.

I qualified as a teacher in 2000 and have worked in primary, secondary and further education as well as in a university and private schools. I have taught privately as a one-to-one tutor for 18 years for students from as young as age 3 to adults. My Early Years teaching has supported students with reaching their potential in phonics, reading, writing and numeracy and includes working with students with SENs. Across the range of primary I have worked with students in the areas of literacy, numeracy, particularly assisting with areas such as spelling, grammar, creative writing, reading comprehension and maths. I have extensive experience of SATS preparation and CE exam preparation (in particular for Latymer School) with very successful results.
