job with Tyra-Ashley:
1-2 hrs/week - I am taking IB Chemistry at Higher Level. I am a medical applicant and therefore have grade requirements for this subject in the 6-7/7 area. I am aiming for a level 7/7.
I struggle with some of the standard level concepts:
- Stoichiometry (Chapter 1)
- Chemical Bonding (Chapter 4)
- Redox (Chapter 9)
- Measurement and Data Processing (Chapter 10)
In our school the higher level chemistry classes are extremely limited (1 hour in a 2 week cycle). Therefore I am struggling with all of the higher level concepts:
- Atomic structure (at higher level; chapter 12)
- The periodic table: transition elements (at higher level; chapter 13)
- Chemical bonding and structure (at higher level; chapter 14)
- Energetics and thermochemistry (at higher level; chapter 15)
- Chemical kinetics (at higher level; chapter 16)
- Equilibrium (at higher level; chapter 17)
- Acids & Bases (at higher level; chapter 18)
- Redox (at higher level; chapter 19)

Dr Steve's last review in IB from Juliet: Review Essay: questions on Descartes - Meditations Very knowledgeable, good detailed feedback on essay.
I am a fully qualified secondary school teacher and I have consistently been rated an ‘Outstanding lead subject teacher with an extensive subject knowledge and a passion for Psychology'. In addition I have now been tutoring on-line through Spires, for over a year. I am proud to say that I am highly respected by my students. Meticulous lesson planning and organisation of schemes of work and resources are paramount in my teaching. I have high expectations of all students and see my key strength in being able to impart confidence in them and their abilities. I have annually achieved amongst the best A Level results in a very able Grammar school, for a major subject: in 2018: 56% A*/A grades and achieving a 100% pass rate in all 5 years at the school. I am very proud at having inspired over a third of the Year 13 cohort, of 58 students, to go onto study psychology/psychology-based courses at University.
Karen's last completed IB job with Laura: Occasional - I am in my first year of IB Psychology (Pamoja taught). i occasionally have questions and would need support especially in biological approaches.
Karen's last review in IB from Laura: Localisation of function She gave me very good explanation and helped me understand a topic that was difficult for me.
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
job with Ana Maria:
1-2 hrs/week - I am currently doing the New IB Mathematics HL Analysis and Approaches.
I need someone to guide me through the IB mathematics syllabus, helping me with the topics so I can understand them better and do them faster.
I particularly struggle with:
Statistics, Algebra, Calculus, Graphs and Trigonometry.
I would also like to learn faster than the pace I learn at school so I can be prepared for the lesson and do exercises that slightly more challenging than what the IB program requires so I am well prepared.
Shahid's last review in IB from Rikardo: Go over IA and recommend corrections, explain theory if needed poor comment on written work
My passion is to develop in students a commitment to their own life long learning and develop the associated skills to achieve their aspirations.
In tutoring, my goal is to support students to achieve to the best of their ability by helping them understand their role in learning, supporting them to develop the necessary subject specific skill competencies as well as content understanding.
Recent students have achieved over 80% in their university entrance exams with just a few sessions including some focus on exam preparation as well as content. Another student with a commitment to her own success achieved a 7 in IB Business Management with one on one teaching over only one year, where I coached her to develop and apply her learning to achieve her desired results.
In the initial free meeting, I will help students to identify and plan their learning goals, then coach them to achieve those goals in future lessons. I also seek to engage with parents from the beginning to ensure students have as many levels of support for their learning as possible.
David's last completed IB job with Tyra-Ashley: 1-2 hrs/week - I am in the final year of high school, completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB). I take Business Management at Standard Level and find myself struggling with the content, particularly finance. I also struggle with application of the content to questions, in particular the extended response questions worth 20 marks or more; my teacher has been critical of me, stating that my answers are often not concise or target the correct key concepts. I am a medical applicant and require very high overall IB points, therefore I am aiming for a level 6/7-7/7 in my exam session: May 2020.
David's last review in IB from Kenji: Kenji, I have booked these weeks in order for us to review Micro as you requested. This may take a little longer but we have the flexibility to decide. We can reschedule any times and dates as needed as well but do try to do that with more than 24 hours notice. We can also adjust the class length in advance if more is beneficial to you. Today we placed focus on my past two IAs and connected it to how I can learn from it for my third IA. While I did feel like there was a lot do do with time pressing, Mr. Y advised me to focus on my current task, so I did feel less pressure by the end of the lesson, which is good!
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 review in IB from Mirjam: ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
I have worked as a professional tutor and educational consultant for six years. I have taught dozens of students for thousands of hours in total. I have also worked as a teacher in an independent school in North London.
I have had many successful students; a few examples include:
>Two admitted to study HSPS at Cambridge.
>One admitted to all three of Westminster, Winchester, and St.Paul's for 13+.
>One who gained 84/84 marks in his A-Level Politics Paper 2, which is now being used as an exemplar.
>One who gained an A in A-Level History after being predicted a C.
I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.
Jacob's last completed IB job with kaya: Over 2 hrs/week - I am Kaya schubert and current editing my final version of my Extended Essay in World studies about inequality and equality. My final deadline in on 20th of November and would like to have tutoring sessions for the up-coming two weekends until the deadline.

Jacob's last review in IB from Domingo : We went through Humanitarian Intervention and discussed whereas it was effective or not. He explained me the concepts in it, and the pros and cons of it.
I have been working as a maths tutor since 2011 and online exclusively since 2015, with over 6000 hours of experience. During this period, I have successfully assisted students studying for their GCSE and IB/A-levels all the way up to university modules and exams. This has taken place both privately and while holding external tutoring roles in various London schools. In the online realm, I have worked with students from all over the world, those studying for UK specifications as well as undergraduates in English speaking universities or wishing to attend UK universities. For instance, I've had students, among others, from Germany, Netherlands, Spain, France, China, USA.
Areas usually covered for undergraduates include analysis and calculus, analytic and differential geometry, financial maths, linear algebra, statistics and probability.
Regarding my tutoring method, I strive to create а well balanced relationship with pupils. I set clear targets for my students and expect them to develop throughout our sessions. Additionally, I emphasize оn the suitable аpprоаch fоr eаch individuаl in оrder tо hаve the best results pоssible. I further cоnsider humоur аn essentiаl pаrt оf my sessiоns аs it creаtes а better leаrning envirоnment, eliminates inhibitions, and promotes а more enjoyable session.
Lastly, in my lessons, I put a lot of emphasis on the background knowledge of every topic and method - dry memorising is of no use. This has proved valuable for students in tackling the challenging and 'unseen' questions in the exams. What is more, exams aside, analytic skills accompany students throughout their studies in various areas.

Panagiotis's last review in IB from Domingo : We went through the Chi squared test and he gave me good explanations about them
I have got over 200 hours of tutoring experience, teaching mostly the IB Diploma and MYP Curriculum, also online. I also got experience in preparing students for SATs and University Mathematics Exams. (Maths for Business, Economics and Finance)
I am comfortable with using new technology to facilitate learning. (Graphics Calculators: TI Nspire, TI-84, Autograph, Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Sharepoint, Bitpaper.)
In my most recent job, apart from the scheduled lessons, I have supported my students in one to one support sessions and I am very proud that many of them achieved 6 or 7 in their Mathematics Higher and Standard Level exams and got admitted to prestigious universities. (Oxford, Imperial, Kings College, QMC, LSE)
My many years of teaching experience enables me to assess student knowledge and learning style quickly and address it with appropriate methods.
