Jacob $80-90/hr

BA in PPE, 2:1 - Oxford

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.

Lucille $50-60/hr

English Literature - UCL

I have 10 years of experience working as a Private Tutor in Cheltenham Spa, London, Moscow and internationally. My experience has ranged from working as a Governess and Residential Tutor for UHNW and VVIP families, to working as an outreach tutor for children with SEN and behavioural difficulties, to working overseas with children who have been victims of trauma and conflict.

For the last 5 years, I have continuously been teaching online, and have taught students as young as 5 years of age, right up to experienced business professionals and retired language learners. This experience has taught me vital strategies in engaging students online, built upon an understanding of age, learning style, objectives, technical abilities, personalities and attention span! In every case, I have built a strong positive rapport with clients and have frequently continued to stay in touch with clients or families even after they have passed their exams or succeeded in their objectives.

Rhys $45-55/hr

Modern Languages (Spanish) with Linguistics - University of Oxford

Significant tutoring experience - tutoring has been my main job since 2012. I have experience teaching one-on-one in person and online, as well providing seminars, workshops, and coaching in schools and at public events.
I hope my experience in online tutoring has demonstrated that I am sufficiently organised and engaging, to provide an enjoyable distance-learning experience. Online teaching is an unusual medium - both distant and intimate at once. I hope that, over the years, I have learnt to strike a decent balance and provide strong online support.

Edith $50-60/hr

English Language and Literature - University of Oxford (New College)

Professional teaching experience
I am a professional teacher of English, with 4 years of experience in both state and independent sectors. In my teacher training (through the prestigious Teach First Leadership Development Programme), I gained a distinction, and have been promoted every year of my teaching career. In my previous school, I ran staff training sessions to improve teaching practice for high ability students, and worked as a coach for fellow teachers. I have taught GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IB qualifications, as well as coaching and mentoring students through UCAS and Oxbridge Entrance. In my teaching role until now I have had little time for paid tuition, but working on-on-one with students outside of class time is part of my daily practice as a teacher, especially when students are struggling or need extra challenge. I have worked extensively with a wide range of ages (11-18) and abilities, as well as with SEN and EAL students.

Paid tuition work outside of teaching
Currently, I tutor one student outside of school as she has needed extra support due to English being her second language. Previously, I tutored a student on creative writing techniques - this is a particular interest of mine.

Deborah $75-85/hr

English, Film Studies - B.A. Barnard College, M.A. in English Literature, University of Rochester

In my 19 years as a teacher, I have taught writing and English literature to students in IB, AP, College, and University. I have also worked for many years as a professional writer for many businesses and institutions, and believe that I therefore more able to offer tools, techniques, and strategies that writers actually use to communicate meaningfully and effectively.

As an English teacher, I believe that many people are under the mistaken belief that you're either born a writer or you're not. That is a myth. Instead, what I try to reinforce is that writing IS work for EVERYONE, and that the trick is to recognize it as a process. Personally, while I have won awards in my professional career as a writer, I have NEVER once written something that was great the first time I wrote it. And while there is no magic formula to great writing, there are some very real skills and strategies that I have learned as a writer which I believe make me uniquely qualified to teach students to be successful in whatever assessment or assignment they may be working on.

I have also taught IB film since it was in its pilot program, and guided hundreds of students through the assessments, either in my own face-to-face classrooms or as an online teacher for Pamoja Education. l work as a team leader and examiner for IB so I am one of the people who grades the actual assessments once they are submitted.

In addition, I currently teach a number of college film courses in feminist and queer film theory, which, in addition to film history and analysis, is an area I am particularly interested in.
