Helen
the potential to succeed and I get a real sense of achievement helping students to achieve their goals. However, I am a traditional tutor in that I expect the student to also work hard, fully commit, complete set work and prepare properly for lessons. Good 'Preparation' is everything. I can give students the tools and show them how to use them but it is up to them to do the work :) *Please note that...
Jeannie
at a time (the group would need to be studying the same subject and level) so students have the option of splitting the cost of a tutoring session between themselves. I can also provide online tuition via Skype / email. Please let me know in advance if a student is not allowed sweets/biscuits or if there are any allergies or other medical problems of which I need to be aware. For example, I have two...

Steve
Film Studies as well as entrance examinations and 11+. Unusually for a teacher, I was a late entrant into the profession and have a business background and qualifications. This allows me also to assist students with Business Studies and Sociology, even up to undergraduate level. I have a focused and practical approach which is results based. I am able to identify quickly areas of strength and weakness in students and to develop ways that will...
Daniel
and then adjusting my methods to suit them. I encourage the children I work with to ask questions; this will allow them to actually understand what they are being taught and not just remember things without fully understanding them. I am relaxed and informal in my approach, and I aim to provide a positive learning environment, where your child can be comfortable and relaxed. I want your child to be confident with their work and...
Debra
are the same. I complete a full assessment of needs in primary-aged children unless the parents are very specific and knowleable as to what is needed for their child. Each parent has specific requests so tuition will depend on what the tuition hopes to achieve, e.g. Common Entrance, Scholarship, catch-up, SATS In History tutoring - many students have been face to face one has skyped from Hong Kong and others have emailed their essays to...
Felicity
strongly in the value of a good rapport between tutor and tutee. I am very good at quickly identifying specific weaknesses and areas for improvement which, in conjunction with an in-depth knowledge of the KS3, KS4 and KS5 curricula, often produces significant and rapid improvement. I believe very strongly that teaching and learning should be creative and active and not be about the passive absorption of facts. I take a keen interest in learning styles...
Sheila
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 their full potential and best grade possible. At University Level I have tutored a 2nd year undergraduate who required help with critical essays and reports. Essay structures were being reviewed as well...

Vicki

College: Cert Ed Hons (1976)
school and might be discouraged by their peers to look "interested" in the subject. During an hour of tuition, they can be themselves and let themselves shine! Above all, I strive to develop an excellent working relationship where my pupil can ask me anything about their studies and where they are not uncomfortable to ask for something to be repeated time and again if needed. In the last few years I have helped to move...
Michelle

Michelle

PGCE: English (Secondary and F.E.) (2008)
can be approached systematically, with guidance from myself, so that a student can always gain some marks at least. I believe that thorough knowledge of assessment criteria is a must-both for myself and my student. Unless a student knows what is required of them to win an 'A*' or a 'C', how will they get it? With regards to all English qualifications, I believe two key skills-often neglected-is effective planning and self-editing when writing any...
