My tuition style is based on the recognition and understanding that each student has their own way of achieving their highest possible results. I fully recognise that in private tuition, the student does not have to compromise and can get the best tutor to suit their individual needs. I try to accommodate the very busy and restrictive schedules of both parents and students, including boarding school students and distance universities. My aim is always to try to help the students achieve their targets.
Jon Yoram's last completed Undergraduate job with Sara: Over 2 hrs/week - I am currently struggling to understand fundamental concepts in Java, such as encapsulation, abstraction, inheritance, and polymorphism. I consider myself to be a beginner and need help before the exams which are in mid-May.
Jon Yoram's last review in Undergraduate from Mel: Very informative and everything just seemed to make sense after he explained it!
I have been teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics since I was in college, 6 years ago. After leaving college, I became a full-time professional tutor. I have worked with students who were complete beginners, as well as those who were facing challenges in mastering advanced topics.
I completely understand the initial struggle in decoding the concepts and formulas. I am adept in breaking down these concepts so that students can understand them. I use simple examples so that students can make sense of these topics. I don't encourage memorization and simply recalling the formulas, instead, I focus on the 'why' and 'how'.
I understand that every student has a different way of understanding things. Some students understand the concepts when explained through analogies, others when shown mathematical foundation behind them. I modify my teaching methodology depending on what the student is comfortable with.

Shubh's last review in Undergraduate from Yingzhi: Exercise 14 Really well-explained, thank you!
I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.
Amy's last completed Undergraduate job with Manpreet : Occasional - I have a deadline for the 1st of May which is to write up an interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) based off some data that I have gathered, however, I am struggling to start off the analysis and would really like some help in the formatting of it. Thank You.
Amy's last review in Undergraduate from Margaret: Proposal review Amy is very professional and by far one of the best tutors I have ever had. I recommend her to any psychology student trying to think more critically. Amy provided me with numerous comments to improve my critical analysis for my report. Thank you Amy !
I hold an MSc and a Ph.D in computer science from Cardiff University. I have worked as a post doctoral research associate in the computer science department of UCL. I have years of hands on industry experience and a few years experience in teaching undergraduate/postgraduate students A Levels and GCSEs.

Thanasis's last review in Undergraduate from Hamze: java Trees
I worked as a TA at UC Santa Cruz and worked at different universities in Turkey (Bilgi, 29 Mayis, Galatarasaray universities). Hence I have experience in teaching. While teaching, I give examples from daily life and make students think about these which makes learning process more participating.

Orcan's last review in Undergraduate from Roka: Always helpful
I teach my students how to learn, so that they become self-independent and able to cope academically at the highest levels. I also believe that each student is different and learns in a different way. Therefore, I always adapt my teaching style to fit the learning style of my students in order to optimise their learning and to help them maximise their potential.
Having studied Economics at LSE, I am able to cover a wide range of subjects up to university level including Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Econometrics and Statistics. My past tutoring experience ranges from 11+ entrance exams all the way up to university level modules.
Amir's last completed Undergraduate job with Jaynika: 1-2 hrs/week - Tutor must have been to LSE or taught at LSE
I have studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I have a knack for grinding down on complex problems until they look easy, and I love doing this with students and watching how things start to make sense to them. As regards language teaching: I am a German native speaker. What I think is even more important, though, is that I have learned several languages, both in school, but also since, in my free time (including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian), so I am well aware of how students learn languages and which aspects may be less intuitive than others.

Christian's last review in Undergraduate from Damilola: Class that we just did. 90 minutes It was last min but the class was really great and helpful.
Joe has three years’ experience teaching a first-year economics course at a top 10 UK university, and in 2019 was the lecturer of a third-year labour economics course. He has tutored many satisfied students at prestigious UK and overseas universities over the last five years.
Joe is a published economist and has been invited to talk about his research by universities across Europe. He has provided econometrics consultancy to UK government departments. Joe holds Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy reflecting his commitment to delivering teaching excellence.
Joe adopts a student centric approach to tutoring. He takes time understand what specific topics or concepts the student is finding difficult and aims to provide a specific solution as well as a broader understanding of the topic and how it fits into the subject in question. He aims to highlight links between concepts within a subject to maximise student understanding.
Joe's last completed Undergraduate job with Malcolm: Occasional - Looking for help with STATA
Joe's last review in Undergraduate from Anais: Joe was amazing at explaining the materials to me, he was very patient and clear, would highly recommend him!
I've worked successfully as a tutor for GCSE and A-Level students for a number of years now, helping them drastically improve their grades. My approach is mainly trust based, my students are often amazed by just how much they can do for themselves if they're in a learning environment that isn't adversarial, oppressive, or plain dull. Beyond A-Level, I have also worked for the University of Oxford as a tutor and seminar leader to undergraduate history and sociology students, and I have degrees in both Archaeology and History. My background of experience is technological, and I work as a civilian consultant to the NASA Ames Human Factors laboratory in that capacity. Central to my approach is an understanding that my students are people, with their own unique strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, which need to be nurtured and supported in order to get the best possible results.
In this way, learning becomes more of a reciprocal exchange of ideas, and through a more relaxed and curiosity-driven approach, it becomes far easier for many to explore, absorb, and abstract their understanding of both the surface learning of school qualifications, and the deep learning of the concepts behind them crucial to getting the very highest grades.
