I am passionate about the subjects that I tutor, and am able to deliver them in innovative and engaging ways. I am experienced in tutoring the sciences across a range of exam boards and levels, and am focused on ensuring each of my students understands how they will best reach their goals!
I am no stranger to revision myself, and so can easily relate to my students. My aim is to build up the confidence of my students in any given subject, and to help each individual to realise their potential!
Ellie's last completed A Level job with kk: Intensive - I am sitting for A Level Chemistry (Pearson Edexcel International) in May and need help with Units 4, 5, and 6.
I am a specialist Computer Science tutor/teacher with more than 20 years experience of private tutoring and teaching class based students. I hold a Degree and Masters Degree in Computer Science. I'm fully conversant with all exam board specifications including AQA, OCR, WJEC, EdExcel, IGCSE, Cambridge International, etc.
The subject I teach is my hobby. I have extensive experience of providing online tuition to students all around the UK, Europe and as far as Hong Kong.
Connecting and having a rapport with the student is key. I have two aims, one is to teach the topic within the specification. The other, more important, is to develop the student's confidence.
In addition, I am a full member of The Tutors Association. This is a professional body that ensures best practices and ethics by members.

Myles's last review in A Level from Anton: CS Really good lesson going through communication methods.
I have tutored in maths & economics for six years, ranging from 7-18 years old. I am also a qualified teacher, with three years of teaching experience in a secondary school. For two of these years I was the Curriculum Leader for Maths & Economics, and was in charge of overhauling the curriculum in both subjects, planning and creating assessments, and supporting students who were falling behind or who needed challenging. This means I have wealth of experience in planning lessons to support students at all levels, including those with special educational needs; I have worked with many pupils with SEN, from dyslexia to autism, both as a teacher and tutor. Creating engaging resources and lessons which address difficulties students have in accessing or understanding the subject is at the heart of what I do.
Samantha's last completed A Level job with Matt: Intensive - A-level economics syllabus. Preparation for the exam in June 2019. He needs to get an A and is currently predicted C. He grasps the subject very well but has not got the “exam technique” re formulae etc..
Samantha's last review in A Level from Rachel: Another amazing session!
I have studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I have a knack for grinding down on complex problems until they look easy, and I love doing this with students and watching how things start to make sense to them. As regards language teaching: I am a German native speaker. What I think is even more important, though, is that I have learned several languages, both in school, but also since, in my free time (including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian), so I am well aware of how students learn languages and which aspects may be less intuitive than others.

job with Beau:
1-2 hrs/week - My 18yr grandson has just been given an E grade for his mock A level Economics. He received an A* for his Engineering which has led me to believe that his Ecnomics teacher is failing him in some way . His exams are in May I believe so I feel he would greatly benefit from some outside help from an exceptional tutor in this subject.
My name is Andrew Laming an experienced teacher of Geography from the UK.
I have been a teacher of Geography since 2003 and have worked in many successful secondary schools. I have been a Head of Geography in two schools for a period of 7 years. I have taught in a range of different schools from state to girls grammar and an independent school.
I have been an online tutor since September 2016 and am also a face to face tutor as well. I have taught many students and do specialize in A Level. I have also tutored students from Marlborough College, Godolphin School and Mount Kelly School, all prestigious independent schools and have enabled the students to achieve very high grades.
I tutor GCSE Geography and History and A Level Geography and History, and have taught all the main examination boards in my sessions: AQA, Cambridge igcse, Edexcel, OCR & Wjec Eduqas.
I have been for several years an expert examiner for Edexcel for GCSE and A Level Geography. This has given me an inside knowledge as to what exam boards expect and look for in the answers of students.
Andrew's last completed A Level job with Cheng: Intensive - My son is in year 12, doing Geography AQA. Tutoring preferred w/b 15 April during easter holidays. He needs help with exam technique. Also, his work is to be marked with clear feedback and targets. An experienced tutor/teacher/examiner would be good to help him.
Andrew's last review in A Level from Uma: Hazardous Earth 33 markers, advice on answering 33 markers in general, Very good, covered exactly what I wanted to cover, overall very helpful.
I estimate I have at least 6000 hours of experience, having been a tutor since 2011. I initially started teaching Maths and Physics to Engineering students at University and I gradually expanded into secondary school level tuition. I have worked full time as a tutor since 2012 and during that time I have taught Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.
I have taught A Levels, IGCSE/GCSE, IB, Pre-U, AP and I have covered nearly every exam board including Edexcel, OCR, AQA, WJEC. All of my students are seeking to get into top Univeristies.
What makes me a good tutor is my ability to break down a subject and cover it in a particular order so that a student who might not have a good understanding can understand how to progress through the topics. It doesn't hurt that I have a sense of humour and make my lessons actually fun and enjoyable.
Shahid's last completed A Level job with Michelle: Intensive - My son was disappointed in his Physics mock results and is looking for intensive tuition from now until the exams in May, Basically, one on one via Skype (we live in Switzerland) to answer questions and make sure that his knowledge base is good.
As a fully qualified teacher and Spires 5* tutor with a decade of experience teaching ages 11 to 18, I am able to provide you with assistance in the new syllabuses in Computer Science from GCSE up to A Level, BTEC and Cam Tech IT / Computing, and Maths year 6 up to GCSE.
I am a Computing At School Master Teacher which means that I also teach other teachers how to teach Computing and Computer Science so you can rest assured that my knowledge of the subject is excellent and always up to date.
Having helped students each year complete their UCAS applications through both state & independent sectors, I have a wealth of experience of the process including writing a personal statement that will help you stand out from the crowd. My students have progressed to Oxbridge and their university retention rate is good.

I passionately believe in students achieving their potential and enjoy the role of personal tutoring to further aid students learning. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business and Economics (2:1) and have worked for a number of large organisations offering a variety of depth and experience. Online tutoring is about helping students form around the world to access education via the platform of the internet, to help them succeed at their studies. Firstly, I like to make an initial meeting to understand the needs and objectives of the personal tutoring before developing a detailed plan of the outline of personal tutoring support. I am keen to ensure that both parents and students alike are happy with the service and will accommodate additional requests. I like to ensure that the learner is both enthused and engaged in the tutoring sessions and have a range of resources and assessment techniques.
Subjects and levels taught:
Economics: A Level and GCSE (Pearson, AQA and OCR)
Business Studies: A Level and GCSE (Pearson, AQA, OCR and WJEC)
BTEC Business: Level 2 and Level 3
Cambridge Technicals: Level 2 and Level 3
Trevor's last completed A Level job with Julie: 1-2 hrs/week - My son is in lower sixth and his lower sixth exams are in 2 months. He seems overwhelmed by the revision. Exam board AQA
Trevor's last review in A Level from Julie: Building confidence and "I can do this" approach in my son - making such a difference! thank you
I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.
Amy's last completed A Level job with Odhran: 1-2 hrs/week - I like psychology I am sitting AQA exam board and I am doing psychology in one year. I would like to cover content and exam technique with essay writing. I have dyslexia, I am sitting my exam this May/June 2019
I am a volunteer for a number of organisations which aim to help disadvantaged students reach university and have tutored a number of students to success in their exams so I have a lot of experience of working with young people and helping them to reach their potential. I am happy to help as a subject specific tutor for GCSE or A-Level, or help students through the sometimes daunting university application process and admissions tests.
About my tutorials:
Sessions are always student-led. I plan tutorials which reflect the student's level of understanding, giving access to notes, including suggested exam questions, which the student can add to during the tutorial, or use as a memory-aid following the tutorial.
I have received lots of positive feedback about this approach.
I can also help students through questions or tasks which they bring, and the best tutorials involve this collaborative input.
The pace of sessions is determined by the student, and I am happy to go through any topic with a number of different approaches until we find one which the student finds helpful.
