I have 17 years experience teaching, was Head of A Level Psychology in a Sixth Form college and have worked overseas. I gained an 'A' grade at A Level Psychology and love the subject. I helped many students to achieve high grades at A Level Psychology and encouraged them to pursue the subject at university. My favourite topics in psychology are cognitive neuroscience (I did A Level biology too, so this was useful!), relationships, psychopathology, schizophrenia and recently forensic psychology which was added to the recent AQA spec (my professor at uni was Professor Canter whose research you will read about when learning about offender profiling). And of course research methods and maths are important in psychology..... it's not all just about mind reading!
I also have taught English as a second language and can help students to improve their English and prepare for the IELTS exam.
I am a 1 to 1 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.
At 7+, I prepare Students for both the Mathematics and English examinations.
At 11 + for both the Independent and Grammar School Sectors , I prepare 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 support children across the Primary Curriculum developing their understanding 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 also tutor Students learning English as a Second Language preparing them for English Proficiency Examinations including English conversation, Reading and writing.
I have been teaching English online for over 12 years, as first started in January 2007 and also first offline in 1996, so have taught very many students in that time - I am well used to online teaching requirements.
I have helped many students online to achieve their goals, for the IELTS exam, business English and general English - I was born in the UK and have a standard UK accent and in addition, I am a grammar specialist.
Need to pass the IELTS exam? This is my specialist exam subject with 10+ years of experience helping students prepare for and pass this international English exam.
Want to improve you pronunciation and British accent? I am a British native teacher so I can help you speak more clearly, sound more natural and be understood by native English speakers.
I've loved Classics since I was 10, when I wanted to become an actor or the world's greatest Classicist. I can't claim to be the world's greatest, but it was a dream to go to Oxford University and study for a Master's degree.
During my studies, I tutored undergraduate students in Latin, whilst also tutoring GCSE students in London. I have also worked with 4-18 year-olds in Hong Kong teaching history, English and Latin. Since joining Spires, I have tutored students in Philosophy, Religious Education, Latin, and Academic Writing, achieving five star ratings across the board. I also have plenty of experience tutoring online with other organisations, and have an excellent record of bumping up grades at GCSE, A Level and Degree level studies.
I am incredibly patient, clear, friendly and enthusiastic. I have a wealth of knowledge about the Ancient World, a thousand interesting stories, and most importantly, I love to teach.
I am a trained language coach and have studied how to keep students calm in my classes. Being happy allows them to learn faster. Because I am patient and kind, I can give constructive feedback without any judgement, and my students receive the feedback they need without feeling criticised. They respond by engaging in the lessons more, looking forward to them and performing at a higher level. I am efficient. I do not limit myself to standard coursework and books where a student will repeat things they already know and feel dissatisfied. Because I have studied languages myself, I have first-hand experience of this, and I avoid it for my students. I tailor my classes to each student and their particular needs.
I have been tutoring for over 20 years and was Head of Department and teacher of English in a leading online school for ten years. I have taught all aspects of English Language and Literature from providing assistance at undergraduate level, through A Levels and GCSEs, down to KS1. What I love about tutoring one-to-one is the building up of a personal relationship with a student and seeing them gain confidence and develop. Every student is different and learns in a different way, and I have a firm belief that, given the right teacher, everyone can do really well in English. I have also taught History to GCSE and KS3 and run Drama groups, and have participated in additional tutoring for LAMDA.
I have 2 TEFL certificates and have tutored for IELTS/TOEFL/C2 as well as having taught practical conversational English to mixed age/ability groups.
I have taught IELTS for 10 years and OET (doctors and nurses) for 3 years, as well as CAE and Business English. I work mainly online with groups and one- to- one. I have been a teacher for 12 years and have taught all levels at FE colleges and private colleges. I coach and mentor students through their exams covering all aspects, techniques, examiners' criteria, and I also do proofreading and essay writing.
I have had many varied teaching roles over the last 8 years, including running ESL summer camps, tutoring A-Level Politics, A-Level Sociology and Oxbridge Admissions support. I have worked with a wide range of students spanning all abilities and ages. My approach is adaptable and results focused ensuring that students achieve their aims.
I am a qualified teacher with over seven years of experience teaching in schools in the UK and overseas. I have taught both music and English as a foreign language, as well as tutoring students through ABRSM piano and music theory exams. My GCSE results are consistently high, and all of my piano students achieved merit or above in their exams. I have taught AQA, Edexcel and IGCSE Music. I have also coached students through A level music.
