Degree: B.Sc. (Hons.)

Experience:     7 years

Qualified Maths teacher with  classroom and private tuition experience. I particularly enjoy watching pupils’ attitudes towards maths change from dread to  confidence. At these ages, an acquired facility in maths lays a strong foundation for future progress in maths and sciences alike.

 

EnglishTutor

Name:     Janet

Degree:   B.A. (Hons.)

Experience:    12 years

Specialisation: A-levels and GCSE

My expertise in English literature, drama and essay writing allows me to engage pupils in thought and discussion. Through the activities and practice, they come to understand the overall purpose of the subject and develop the required skills. Ultimately, they not only feel proud of their achievements but also draw pleasure from their learning.

 

Social Sciences & Humanities Tutor

Name:     Robyn

Degree:   B.A (Hons.); TEFL Certificate

Experience:     4 years

Specialisation: A-levels in Social Sciences & Humanities;

In my work with students, I emphasise raising confidence and creating appreciation for the subject. Their achievements reflect immediate improvement.  Although exam preparation focuses on technique and repetition, we maintain a comfortable and jovial atmosphere. In addition I have experience teaching EFL.

 

A Levels Social Sciences Tutor

Name: Thomas

Degree:   B.SC (Hons.)

Experience:     6 years

Specialisation: Science & Biology

As a secondary school teacher, I have experience both in the classroom and in private tutoring, and am familiar with the exam requirements. I specialise in preparing for AS/A2 and GCSE.

I find it essential to adapt teaching methods to each individual student. The skills they acquire are the same, but the approach differs.

 

Chemistry and Physics Tutor

Name:    Cynthia

Degree: B.Sc.

Experience:     8 years

Specialisation: GCSE

I’ve been tutoring and preparing students for the GCSEs in chemistry and physics since I graduated, so I can easily identify where students need a boost. Of course it’s wonderful to see how improved grades affect the confidence of young students, but what I like best is demonstrating how these materials pertain to real life settings.

 

History and Religious Studies Tutor

Name:    Brian

Degree: M.A.

Experience:     5 years

Specialisation: GCSE and A-Levels

There is a good deal of memorisation required to succeed in these subjects; therefore, part of our efforts during tutoring sessions are dedicated to reviewing mnemonics and helpful tricks, but only as an addition to the contextualisation the of facts and major developments of each period studied. I make it a habit to present the material in ways suitable to various types of learners: visual, auditory, associative, etc; I find this approach is extremely helpful to the student.

 

Geography and History Tutor

Name:    Aidan

Degree: B.A.

Experience:     9 years

Specialisation: 11+, 13+,

In my experience, I find that making an initial connection with students is key to their later success. Learning with me is fun; I bring a sense of humour, a light-hearted approach and creativity to my tutoring sessions. It’s simple: if I don’t enjoy the lesson, neither will my students. I do it because I care about the kids and because I know that when they are comfortable and relaxed, their minds are open and they’re ready to learn.


French Tutor

Name:    Vivian

Degree: B.A.

Experience:     9 years

Specialisation: GCSE, A-Levels

Having learnt French as my native language, I am naturally comfortable speaking, reading and writing in French, an interest that I then pursued through my academic studies. I have been tutoring students of all ages for the last nine years. As a bilingual, I can anticipate the difficulties and pitfalls students typically encounter, and help them overcome the obstacles. After that it becomes fun—mais, oui!

 

Biology Tutor

Name:    Howard

Degree: B.Sc.

Experience:     4 years

Specialisation: primary, KS-3, GCSE, A-Levels

I’m a medical student with significant experience teaching students at various stages of schooling. I bring to our tuition sessions plenty of enthusiasm for the subject, resourcefulness and patience. I am well familiar with the exams and requirements and have led many students to successful results.

 

Sociology and Psychology Tutor

Name:    Grace

Degree: M.A.

Experience:     4 years

Specialisation: GCSE, A-Levels

I am preparing for a career as a counselling psychologist and I have always found interpersonal interactions rewarding. I especially enjoy working with students. I have successfully helped students with learning disabilities, who are often attracted to these subjects but may require a different approach.
