I am an English Literature graduate from Oxford University. I am passionate about educating young people and ensuring they reach their highest potential. To date I have worked as a private tutor, mentor, workshop facilitator and coach. As a private tutor I have taught English at GCSE and A-Level and have prepared Ox-bridge candidates, most of whom have been offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge. I have worked with Eton and Mactrac Digital Education to deliver the Eton X language programme, specialising in leadership and management skills for young students. In this role I have also interviewed and prepared prospective tutors, ensuring that tutors deliver the best in digital education. I continue to find new ways to encourage students to perform as their most confident selves when faced with an academic challenge or when trying to reach a specified goal, such as entry into a desired college or university. I have a body of experience as a workshop facilitator, including using creative writing and drama to help unlock student’s potential. I do this work on a voluntary basis and have used it to help foster confidence and initiative in young people and adults. My focus is goal orientated whilst maintaining a commitment to a highly individualised approach. This is powerful because the student is met on both an educational and personal level, providing an individual , allowing and em...

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 GCSE job with Clare: 1-2 hrs/week - I’m in year 10 and I’m taking my GCSE in May. I’m studying the WJEC syllabus and I got a level 5 in my mock. I would like to improve on this grade
Andrew's last review in GCSE from Kamla: Introductory chat and trial lesson. She was doing Edexcel, Cold War, Weimar Germany, Crime & Punishment throughout Time and Richard & John. We hope that we can book the same for her in May/June 2019. Friendly, professional and informative introduction (not a lesson).
My approach to tutoring is get the student interested in the subject they are studying, as learning about something you're interested in makes all the content more accessible.
All the content taught in the lesson will be from your school's exam board. The lessons will be based on the content you need for your exams, as well as developing strategies and skills to answer exam questions.
I will be able to provide all material for the tutoring sessions.
Blake's last completed GCSE job with Akanksha: 1-2 hrs/week - I am in year 10 and would like a tutor for years 10 and 11, I would like to achieve grade 9 in single science.
Blake's last review in GCSE from Abi: All the lessons my daughter has had with Blake has been thoroughly enjoyed by her. Sciences have often been a challenge and now she actually says she understands the topics they have covered thus far. I think Blake should be commended on producing a new science convert.
I have three years’ experience tutoring the humanities in person and online. I have an excellent track record of preparing students for English and History to GCSE, IB, and A-Level.

Elizabeth's last completed GCSE job with Maria: 2_HOURS - Teach and prepare homeschooled student for IGCSE examinations in january. Lives in bali,Indonesia.
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 GCSE job with Kasia: Occasional - Nimo (15) requires GCSE/A-Level Physics tuition
Shahid's last review in GCSE from Kasia: I have an extra time as a student has taken an earlier class, 4:30pm UK time is fine Great!
I have over four years of experience as a one-to-one tutor, teaching primary school students right through to adult learners. My aim as a tutor is to make the examination experience as painless possible, equipping tutees with the confidence and capabilities they need to ace their goals - and to have some fun along the way!
There can be no one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to a tutoring session. Every tutee has different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and will progress at an individual pace. I'm able to help with anything from oral presentations and spoken fluency, to essays, literature, and grammar (having personally tried all the tips and tricks!).
My lessons are designed to challenge, not to overstretch. I set regular quizzes to check tutees’ progress - as well as asking for frequent feedback so I can make sure to be the best tutor I can be. We don't always understand things from the word go - and that's perfectly okay. But if you or your child needs a helping hand from someone who's experienced as both a tutor and a student themselves, I’m here to help.
