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...

job with Anne:
Intensive - My 13 year old son is preparing for a major entrance exam to the academically challenging "Gymnasium" secondary school here in Switzerland. My husband and I grew up in the UK and speak limited French. Our son has 10 days this summer when he would like to do an intensive session each day to use his spoken French and written French. This 10 days runs 13.07-24.07.
Ideally he'd like to work with a young person who shares his liking for sports and can be a bit of a breath of fresh air compared to standard school. Ideally a guy, but not critical. If sessions could be reasonably early in the morning he could combine his French mornings with a summer sports camp locally. Intense work and then time to get outside!
Then after the 18th August work with a French tutor would continue, with sessions once or twice a week, ideally after school at 16:00.
This could be the same tutor or a different tutor, so please get in touch for either or both these periods. Many thanks!
Ella 's last review in GCSE from Anne: Fantastic first session! Thank you.
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 GCSE job with Simon: Over 2 hrs/week - A Level Computer Science CIE syllabus, A2 content to start immediately for examination in May 2020. 3 students needing 5 hours a week tutoring when lessons would normally take place.

Myles's last review in GCSE from Helen: CS Great tutor, pleasure working with him
I have over 6 years of experience in teaching Maths. I have tutored over 80 students and taught 4000+ hours of online lessons with various tuition agencies. Most of the students I have taught have been year 7 - 9, GCSE, A level and Further Maths A level students. I am familiar with the GCSE and A level syllabus for the following exam boards: Edexcel, AQA, OCR, OCR MEI and CIE. I have worked with students who are dyslexic or struggling with Maths and also high-achieving students.
Romin's last completed GCSE job with sofia: 1-2 hrs/week - I am doing the Edexcel iGCSE in maths and I am looking to get an 8 or 9 from a 6 and 7. I need help in application questions at the end of the papers.
Romin's last review in GCSE from Suzy: Maths It was very good and we went through multiple topics. very good lesson :)
I'm a postgraduate at The University of Oxford, and already hold a Congratulatory First in German (BA) with the best results of the 200 students in the Languages department, as well as the highest grades in Arts subjects at my college.
I also have over four years of tutoring experience, from primary through to GCSE, A Level, and undergraduate. It's a consistent delight to celebrate tutees' successes - be it getting to grips with a thorny bit of grammar, having a 'eureka!' moment with a tricky piece of literature, or passing exams with flying colours.
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 can help with anything from oral presentations and spoken fluency, to essays, literature, and grammar (having personally tried all the tips and tricks!).
Daniella's last completed GCSE job with Gaya: 1-2 hrs/week -
Daniella's last review in GCSE from Naomi: It was great - very helpful to see the worksheets through the screen.
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 Dyah: 1-2 hrs/week - My son is in year 11 now and doing geography for his GCSE. He wants to do geography for A level as well. He is doing ok at the moment, meeting his target for it. Just need to further mentoring for the GCSE to gain his potential in achieving his target
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 tutored in person and online for over 10 years and receive great feedback with my students receiving mostly A*'s and A's. I believe that interacting and stimulation is the key to excellent tutoring.
I work mainly on perfecting exam techniques and how to answer the question for maximum marks. I have a lot of practice material and previous exam material.
I welcome inquiries from anyone who would like extra, on-going tuition, help with general revision or assignments, or preparation for exams.
I have experience with OCR, AQA and Edexcel syllabus.
Marie K's last completed GCSE job with Kimberley: Intensive - We are looking for a GCSE tutor for our son an hour a day for the next 2 weeks.
Marie K's last review in GCSE from Malathi: Good lesson.
Over the past two years I have tutored students regularly in Latin, Ancient Greek, Classics, English Literature and Essay writing. I am familiar with the OCR syllabuses for Latin, Greek and Classics both at GCSE and A-level, and have developed my own resources designed to tackle set texts, unseen passages, translation from English into Latin/Greek and to reach the required level of grammatical understanding. I have also tutored a pupil for Latin IB, including the research dossier. During university, I took up Latin and Ancient Greek from scratch, so I can vividly understand the frustrations and difficulties which arise when learning Ancient languages. This has made me explore alternative methods of learning vocabulary and improving grammar through texts, rather than tables.
I have tutored pupils who need to gain top grades to take up their Oxbridge offers, and pupils struggling at school in need of extra support. As such, I develop my resources and teaching methods depending on the individual needs, aims and interests of the students. I am able to provide exam-style passages, vocabulary tests and writing tasks if desired.
During my final year of University, I volunteered in a local primary school on a programme called 'Literacy through Latin', teaching latin to a group of year six pupils, particularly those eligible for pupil premium. The project aims to use Latin to improve literacy, and so I developed latin games, exercises and creative projects. For this project I received training from the Kings College London education department.
In addition to these regular students, I have tutored pupils for competition essays, including those for the St John's College Oxford prize and the Mary Renault Prize, encouraging high-achieving pupils to think creatively and write fluently. I also have experience tutoring a mature graduate Psychology student in essay writing skills, helping them to improve their writing style ahead of a final dissertation.
Henriette's last completed GCSE job with Freddie: 1-2 Hours / Week - My son is in year 10 studying OCR Latin. He is taking his GCSE in May 2020. He is academically able but has not engaged with the Latin course. He would be expected to get 7-9 grades but is some way off with his Latin. We are looking for help in really drilling down on the grammar, translation and set texts. Many thanks
Henriette's last review in GCSE from Malory: Thank you for another great class!
I teach learners of all abilities and ages, using my experience in teaching secondary (Years 7-11), as well as tertiary (Years 12 and 13) students and can prepare learners for GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IBDP German ab initio, and German B (SL or HL) exams. I have also taught professionals, adults and in primaries, as well as raised our own children bilingually.
The 2018/2019 examination season was yet another very successful year for my tutees. I do not only keep my 100% pass rate; all my A Level tutees outperformed their predicted grades (based on their 'Mocks') by two grades and my GCSE/IGCSE tutees improved their predicted grades by at least three grades/digits. Many of them outperformed their target grades (where possible) and one of them improved by five grades/digits compared to her predicted '4' ('Mocks'). Also, my Goethe Zertifikat tutees passed with at least „gut".
Soenke's last completed GCSE job with Nitish: 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking for a German tutor for my son ..he is in year 8 & he will give an early GCSE in year 9 itself.
Soenke's last review in GCSE from Nitish: Higher Reading Paper - strategies - step-by-step There was an audio slur in the middle and at moments the class froze for a bit.
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.
In Summer 2016, I helped a student go from a D to an A in A-Level History resits. The previous year, one of my students went from a U-grade mock to a B in GCSE English in the space of 6 weeks.
In addition to my BA in History from the University of Cambridge (2013), I hold an MA by Research in History and Music from Durham University (2015, AHRC Scholarship).
