I'm an enthusiastic teacher with lots of experience working with young people of different ages and abilities. As well as tutoring English, Latin and Classics to students from primary to degree level, I've taught drama to teenagers and English at IB summer schools. I'm familiar with the AQA, OCR, Edexcel and WJEC exam boards. I believe that I've got the creativity, organisation and communication skills that make a good tutor, as well as specialised knowledge and heaps of enthusiasm!
Stephanie's last completed Primary job with AiDee: 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking for a professional English ( writing ) tutor for my 10 years old.
Stephanie's last review in Primary from AiDee: Wonderful teacher!
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 Primary job with Veronika: 1-2 hrs/week - German for 10 year old - knows some basic as mum is german) and 12 year old to learn and get her to GCSE one year before GCSE’s. She is in year 6 now.
Daniella's last review in Primary from Elise: amazing
I am a recent Geography graduate from Cambridge University, Gonville and Caius College. I tutored throughout my time studying at Cambridge and intend to continue doing so as I love spreading my passion for the subject and helping others to achieve the grades they deserve! I also helped out at a teaching assistant whilst I studied for my A-levels at my local high school. I have experience with all specifications and as I achieved 100% in my Geography exams at A-level and GCSE, I can offer sound advice in terms of both exam technique and content! I have also helped undergrads with coursework and dissertations, as well as EPQ projects for A-level. My previous students have obtained A*s, with one going on to study Geography at Oxford and another achieving 100% and going on to study Medicine.

Hannah's last review in Primary from Frederique: Same comment Excellent, thanks
I pride myself in the quality of working relationship quickly developed with students of all ages. Whether reaching for examination confidence, mastery of subject content or skills, or progress with emotional, behavioural or cognitive needs, all tutees should expect teaching that is entirely personalised and constantly adaptive to their evolving learning, including:
- guidance for pupils toward understanding and pride in all supported subject disciplines, while troubleshooting all associated challenges, from frustrations with phonics to maths anxiety, from the art of the essay to that of examination-timing and from Alternative Vote in politics to ‘alternative conceptualisations’ in chemistry;
- mentoring or life-skill teaching: identifying and fostering scholastic and general skills beyond those specific to particular academic subjects yet required for flourishing within educationally related outcomes generally;
- support for atypical educational needs. Teaching in this area is important to me, and I am currently extending my training with additional part-time postgraduate studies. Inwardly, special-needs are never what I see; what I see are special opportunities: exciting opportunities. My teaching teaches for exciting futures, not needful ones.
My aim is for each of my students to discover the tools, skills and conviction to achieve all the outcomes of their and of their parents’ hopes. I want my students to discover what they can do and to inspire themselves by what they find.
Rupert's last completed Primary job with Isabel: Over 2 hrs/week - My daughter is in Year 3 (7 years old), she is very behind in her maths. I need a tutor to bring her up to speed.
I worked extensively as a full-time teacher, in both the mainstream sectors and Independent Schools sector, covering both KS1 and KS2 throughout Surrey, London, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. She was also a PPA teacher and have taught a one to one intervention programmes in Surrey.
As a tutor, I believe in working on a personalised course of study working through use of past exam papers and interview questions, teaching students to answer the questions well and grow in confidence. As such, I have successfully coached children through 7+, 11+ and 13+ examinations including up to scholarship level. Her past students have gained entry to the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Eton College, St James School Ashford, Halliford School, Shepperton, St Catherine’s School, Bramley and St George’s College, Weybridge.
I am now a specialist one to one and online tutor working with students in preparation for Independent School Entrance examinations at 7+, 11+,13+ along with the 11+ Examinations for Grammar Schools. For the 7+ I have prepared students for both the Mathematics and English examinations. At 11 + I have prepared children for the Mathematics, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests. At 13 + Common Entrance I help students to prepare for the English Writing and Reading Comprehension Examinations. I have also supported children across the Primary Curriculum, developing their understanding and skill set in order to boost their confidence and prepare them for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATS in Mathematics and English at the end of Primary School.
I am a qualified TEFL teacher who has prepared students face to face for the Cambridge Advanced English Examinations.
I am an empathetic and enthusiastic tutor who always strives to help my tutees become the best that they can be!
Claire's last completed
job with Jonathan:
1-2 hrs/week - We are looking for a Tutor for our 10 year old son over the Summer holidays. Ideally we are looking for assistance in Maths and written English and possibly Science. At a long shot basic Arabic speaking as we live in Bahrain.
Ideal times would be Sunday-Thursday mornings (note we are GMT +2) and are open to separate Tutors or a single Tutor who can assist will all.
We would suspect we need about 2 hours per week but open to change and whilst we do not want to swamp our son with homework we also note that over the Summer there is little chance of going outside due to the temperatures
Hope we can eat some positive feedback
Claire's last review in Primary from Aminath: Introduction It was fantastic.
I have a broad range of experience in teaching English, Chinese and Spanish speaking students between the ages 4-18 (in language learning, culture and history), so I have good communication skills for diverse age groups and backgrounds. I have been in the English, Chinese and Mexican schooling systems and so adapt well to different learning styles.
My degree at Oxford was in History so I spent a lot of time in the one-on-one tutorials, and so also understand the tutee experience. I am organised and work hard on making my teaching fun and dynamic so that classes are as productive and enjoyable as possible! The relationship between students and tutor is really important for me.
Hannah's last completed Primary job with Nathan: 1-2 hrs/week - My son is 7 and I would like him to have Mandarin lessons
I have been a private tutor for over 6 years and hold Qualified Teacher Status with experience teaching in schools in Suffolk and Devon. I was graded 'Outstanding' for my Teacher Training and also have experience working in industrial and research laboratories.
I am experienced in tutoring and teaching GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics tuition and A level Biology and Chemistry. I really like to break-down the difficult topics and train you how to give examiners what they want in your answers. I have worked with a wide range of students of all ages and abilities and the wonderful thing about tutoring is I can adapt it exactly to your specific needs. Having also worked as an exam assessor I know exactly the standard and requirements required to gain the marks!
I LOVE my subject and love discussion in order to further understanding. I think part of my success as a teacher is my enthusiasm and need to have fun. I try to remind my students exactly how exciting science actually is outside of textbooks.

Daniela's last completed Primary job with Komal: 1-2 hrs/week - English and maths
I love my subjects, and enjoy finding different, engaging ways through which to help my students grapple with them. This is why I started working for Spires and other tutoring companies just over 3 years ago now, helping school pupils and adults alike with everything from A Level English to Greek language learning. I currently work as a research assistant in Oxford University's Phonetics Laboratory, but before this I worked for seven months in a girls' boarding school in Oxford providing Sixth Form students with academic and pastoral support, coaching many through their Oxbridge applications. I have also volunteered over the years in primary and secondary schools, helping students who are on the autism spectrum with their work and communication skills. This has given me experience with pupils of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
