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 completed A Level job with Liz: 1-2 hrs/week - My son didn’t study Computer Science fir GCSE. He needs intensive catch up whilst assisting in the A level weekly curriculum and homework.
Myles's last review in A Level from Mark: Brilliant Lesson!!!
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 specialise in A Level. I have also tutored students from many prestigious independent schools such as Marlborough College, Charter House, Godolphin School and Mount Kelly School 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 experience of tutoring international students and have taught students in Athens, Bahrain, California, Dubai, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Kuwait.
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.
I strive to get the best results as possible for my students and will always follow the exam board specification used by my students and this enables them to be as successful as possible.
Andrew's last completed A Level job with Mrithika : 1-2 hrs/week - My friend suggested a tutor called Andrew would it be possible to have him as a tutor for my daughter please inform. Thanks
Andrew's last review in A Level from Will: Good initial talk with Andrew. He gave me some useful ideas on how to structure my studies and how we could work together on exam technique
I have over 4 years of experience 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 passionate about the subjects that I tutor, and am able to deliver them in innovative and engaging ways. My aim is to build up the confidence of my students in any given subject, and to help each individual to realise their potential.
Eleanor's last completed A Level job with Byron: Over 2 hrs/week - Chromatography, organic synthesis, NMR spectroscopy, electro-protentials
Eleanor's last review in A Level from Evie : continued
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 Abbas: 1-2 hrs/week - I have just recieved my predicted grades for A level and recieved a B in physics OCR B. I need to improve this grade to at least an A during the resit that takes place at the beginning of September to match the A* predicted grades I recieved in my other subjects. I would like weekly tutoring sessions to help me with learning exam technique and going through previous exam questions that I have not understood. Thank you.
***I AM CURRENTLY NOT TAKING ON NEW STUDENTS***
***I'm afraid there is no way I can make exceptions to this***
My name is Laurence, I have a PhD in Mathematics from The University of Oxford, where I also attended for undergraduate, completing an MMath integrated masters degree in mathematics.
I have 5 years of tutoring experience and have tutored at several Oxford independent schools alongside privately tutoring many students. I cover secondary school Mathematics, teaching students from the 11 up to the age of 18, covering everything from year 7 Mathematics to Further Mathematics A-Level. I am most experienced in tutoring Mathematics/Further Mathematics A-Level, GCSE and IGCSE.

Laurence's last completed A Level job with Nick: 1-2 hrs/week - My son is a Year 13 A-Level student in Music, Maths and Further Maths. He has offers from his preferred Universities to study Music and Maths Joint Honours, however he needs some support in Further Maths, particularly Mechanics and Vectors.
Laurence's last review in A Level from Thomas: Another great lesson!
I have tutored in maths & economics for six years, with students 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 Joseph : 1-2 hrs/week - Revision of year 1 A level syllabus to make sure I understand everything thoroughly. Exam practice.
Samantha's last review in A Level from Rachel: Another amazing session!
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

PGCE Biology, BSc Hons 2:1 Microbiology, 20 years' teaching experience including the last 7 years tutoring A-level Biology to around 350 tutees as individuals or groups. Excellent results with all tutees improving beyond their target grade. Many successful potential Medics, Vets, Dentists and Biology students have gained A* in Biology A-level and managed to secure a place at their first choice University following weekly tuition. On-line tuition only. I am a very approachable, friendly tutor with a wealth of knowledge regarding examination technique. I have the ability to simplify all theory ensuring the tutees build on their basic knowledge and then secure full understanding. I endeavour to ensure all theory is grounded before applying the knowledge to examination style questions. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
Nicky's last completed A Level job with Iman: 1-2 hrs/week - I am resitting my OCR A level biology, having obtained a B grade I would like to boost that to an A/A* grade in order to go to my desired university.
Nicky's last review in A Level from Iman: Nicky is one of the best biology tutors that I have had. She has helped me strengthen my exam technique to push myself further in achieving a top grade. She also explains topics in an easy to follow manner and will ensure that I completely understand a topic before moving on. With the help of Nicky my confidence in biology has increased and has made me feel well prepared for my a level exams.
I have been tutoring and teaching for over 15 years, and over half of that has been spent in the position of Head of Science or assistant principal. I believe that I am easy to be around and students feel comfortable when working with me and are confident that they can ask any question, no matter how silly they may perceive it to be. I always try to think of relevant and engaging ways to tackle a topic to enable all abilities to understand.
Having left teaching in September 2018 to spend more time with my baby daughter, I've set up my own business that designs lesson resources for other teachers. This not only means that I have access to hundreds of resources that I share during lessons to back up the learning but also means that I'm aware of the intricacies and key details of all of the specifications, including the International ones
Gareth's last completed A Level job with Esme: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter Esme is just starting 6th form. She would like to take Biology at A level, but because she only got a 6 in her GCSE they insist she starts with AS level. If this goes well she can swap to full A level. Esme is very keen to do this and we have agreed to support her. Many thanks
Gareth's last review in A Level from Amelia: Very useful!!
