Sheila
the final exam. Project planning and time management techniques are taught while considering other subjects also being studied. Each tutee is supported depending on their individual needs. Some require help with confidence building and stress related issues. Others are quite confident within themselves but need more help to cope in the exam room on the day. I believe that knowledge and learning must also be complimented by competent examination techniques to ensure the learner achieves...

PGCE: Chemistry With Science (2011)
approach to tutoring is simple and effective - after an initial discussion about student needs a list of priorities is drawn up to be targeted! This could be for an assessment, a homework task, prelim or just general revision. Whatever the student needs, he/she will get. In tutoring I use a variety of different teaching methods - it may involve discussions, past papers, question and answer exercises, card sorts. In all that I do I...
Ellis
not achieve in school/college because they cannot absorb classroom information simply because the method of presentation doesn't suit their personal style. Frequently, students suffer from overload, poor organisation or simply can't differentiate between the vital and the trivial when bombarded with work. Some visual learners need assistance in creating revision styles while some students who listen well yet can't record information coherently require help in assembling facts/figures from what they hear. In general, I have...

true potential it is their mindset and approach to learning that lets them down. This is where I come in- through sharing the exact techniques I utilised, I help all my tutees positively change their relationship with learning and education. My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge...
John
lecturer at the Glasgow School of Art, and as a widening participation tutor in schools across Glasgow as part of Glasgow University's widening participation programme. I also work with young children for the Children's Wood Charity - for which I am a trustee. I have privately tutored for several years. I tailor each set of sessions to the individual needs of the tutee, and I provide extensive written and verbal feedback on students' work. I...

my details, and I'll guarantee to refer you on if you're unhappy anyway. - Rates negotiable: If I don't need to travel far (in particular, if you travel to me), and if the material is standard, so that I don't have to budget time to prepare for lessons, I'm able to offer a discount on the price stated on my profile. Just ask: if you can provide me details of the course, ideally with a...
have also homeschooled children. I cover all levels from age 6 to adult, including reading, writing, spelling, grammar, comprehension, close reading, literary criticism, textual analysis and evaluation, creative writing, study skills, reasoning and exam technique. I tailor my tuition to the needs of the individual. I focus on encouragement and developing areas of strength as well as addressing areas where improvement is needed. I aim to engage learners actively so that the learning process is...

is to help you achieve your full academic potential. That said, if studying isn't your thing at all and you simply want some guidance while jumping through a few academic hoops or someone to stem the stats tears, I can help there too. Sessions can include, but are not limited to, teaching general or specific areas of the syllabus, coursework guidance, assignment editing, revision techniques and exam preparation. Parents/guardians are welcome to accompany students to...

home so that the learner is in a friendly, relaxed environment. During our first couple of sessions I will fully assess where the learner is in their understanding, where their strengths and pressures are plus assess their preferred learning style. Assessment will be continuous as we progress and tutoring will be matched to the learners needs. I gather evidence of where the learner is and we work out the next steps together so that they...
Katrina
they have plenty of time left at the end of the exam. Entry to medicine provides many more opportunities for learning. I believe and know a group approach can be beneficial alongside one-to-one. As a future medic, you will be required to work in teams and it is important to be developing this mindset early on. Practicing for interviews can be very fun (role-play is common in MMIs), informative and widen perspectives as you learn...
