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.
My degree a B.Sc. in Maths, with Psychology as a subsidiary (Leicester University). I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (University of London Institute of Education). After graduating, I worked part-time at Barnet College of Technology teaching various classes from numeracy to A-Level. My main experience is in teaching one-to-one, which I have been doing since I was an undergraduate in the 1980s, and so I have had many years to hone a style which must be adapted to suit the many different students. I am always wary of trying to push students too hard and l would rather do a limited amount that they understand properly than overwhelm them trying to cover the whole syllabus. Of course they want to do well in the exam and so we may need to talk about things like the grade they are likely to achieve, how much they are willing/able to do and whether it is worth the effort. I was with another agency until they recently folded and it was through them that I attended a course in July 2016 (14 GBAM01): Getting Ready to Teach Pearson's new GCSE (9-1) Mathematics specification from 2015. When I joined the agency in 2013, they sent a form to my referee, Dr Iqbal, which he kindly completed and sent to me to be used as a testimonial: From Dr Annum Iqbal-12 April 2013 Re: Reference for Mr Nick FENTON (Maths) The above named person has applied to this agency to work as a private tutor, at the pupil's home or at the tutor's home, and has given your name as a referee. Please could you answer the following questions in confidence and send back this e-mail. 1. Do you consider the applicant suitable to work as a private tutor? Yes, we can confidently recommend Nick as a very good maths tutor. He started with our eldest son about 2009 tutoring him for GCSE (grade A*) and subsequently A level (grade A). Then Nick tutored our middle son who also achieved GCSE grade A* and A level grade A. Finally, our youngest son was coached for GCSE maths and achieved A* and at A level maths grade A. Nick is punctual and always very courteous. On many occasions, he spends longer than the scheduled time. Kind Regards Dr Annum Iqbal Below is a testimonial from the mother of a son and daughter whom I taught from 2007 to 2012: My two children have been tutored by Nick since year 10 till the end of A-Level Both of them achieved A* in maths and further maths. Also, they like his teaching style. Mrs Pang Finally, my hobbies at present include tennis, Modern Greek and old cars.

I am currently a biomedical science undergraduate student, I did A level biology, mathematics and chemistry. I was a prefect and mathematics leader in sixth form which required me to teach KS2 and KS3 mathematics to younger students. I am currently a student mentor at my university. I did private tutoring for 1 and a half years in sixth form, teaching GCSE mathematics to a year 11 student.
I've taught and tutored mathematics for 23 years now. In my career I have been mathematics teacher, subject leader and consultant so I have an in-depth knowledge of the school curriculum, the requirements of each of the exam boards and have a range of teaching strategies to meet the needs of all learners. I tutor students from all school year groups as well as adults. In particular I support students with 11 plus, end of Key Stage 2, entrance exams, GCSE, Functional Skills and A Level. I am familiar with the content of all exam boards. I am also happy to teach work related exam content as long as I am given the relevant information beforehand. Before working with a student I like to know about their aims, relevant learning needs and prior learning information. How I teach is decided by how my student learns. The topic to be taught is chosen by the student beforehand or by my assessing them. Typically I ask the student to explain what they know in the topic so far and help them to learn any gaps or misconceptions in learning. I then model the next step before giving them questions on the topic which become progressively harder bringing in reasoning and problem solving to ensure mastery. I like then to quiz at them end or the beginning of the next session to check understanding. I welcome questions at all times and will adapt what I am doing at any time to ensure learning is taking place. When preparing students for exams I use exam papers from the relevant exam board.
Qualified Mathematics Teacher specialising in 1-2-1 tuition at Common Entrance, GCSE/IGCSE and A-Level. I have worked in private tuition for 20+ years and have also been a specialised A-level Mathematics Coach for a leading Girls' Independent school.
I have tutored in both Physics & Mathematics as long as I have been teaching in main schools (21yrs). Now that I am 'retired' I tutor even more so but I also am a 'visiting engineer' at the school where I was a Head of Physics. In this new role, I encourage students into Engineering; indeed, my engineering experience in the Nuclear Industry (CEGN, BNFL, EDF) has greatly influenced the 'applied way' in which I deliver my teaching of Physics principles. In my opinion, this is the best way to teach physics, as it makes instant sense when applied. I am incredibly patient and have no problems in going over issues arising. I actively encourage questions during lessons but also use students' errors to reinforce their eventual understanding. In terms of my experience as a Head of Year 12 where I was simultaneously Head of Physics, I wrote & processed many colleagues' UCAS Reports and assisted students with their statements. Indeed my comments were so well constructed that some were used as exemplars at staff meetings. I love teaching my subjects and the challenge which each different student brings to the table. I was the first teacher to introduce Oxbridge preparation at my school and this developed very well eventually. I used parents and industrial contacts mainly and developed a good technique for enabling students to show their best side rather than to over challenge them. They left my sessions challenged but encouraged. The system which I started is now an excellent system which works superbly well.
I'm an experienced science and language tutor with more than 10 years of teaching. SPANISH I have studied Spanish for over 10 years and obtained the highest certificate in Spanish as Foreign Language (DELE) with distinction. I was awarded first prize in many Spanish international competitions. For four years, I did courses in Spanish geography, history and culture, and I normally use what I learned to make my classes interactive and more than a way of teaching a language. I like immersing people in the Spanish culture, with its food, dances, famous painters and explorers. Have taught Spanish as foreign language for more than ten years, in one-to-one and one-to-few sessions. I adapt my style to the students I work with - for one, it can be all about having fun while translating lyrics of famous songs and watching Spanish short films (audio, experiential learners); for another it can be about rigorously tackling grammar and crafting complex stories. Regardless of the approach, you should expect that after a year of weekly/fortnightly classes you would advance by two levels (e.g. A2 to B2). I wholeheartedly recommend trying learning a language from a non-native speaker, as the way a foreign language is learned is very different from a native tongue. If you speak foreign languages, you know what I mean. If not, just give it a go! SCIENCES I'm doing a PhD in Biology at the University of Oxford and have taught both within the university and in private summer schools in Oxford on the topic. I teach both high school students who need help preparing for exams, as well as university students who want to go in-depth within a certain subject or understand course material. My methods focus on applied learning, which means I'll help you understand why it is important to learn something and what you can do with that knowledge, not just how to learn. My teaching method for A-level students focuses on problem-based learning similar to university admissions interviews. I am comfortable teaching younger students in a variety of science subjects, including students with learning difficulties. You can expect a very fun, hands-on approach to learning.
