70% of my A-level students achieve A* or A grade. I'm an Oxford University graduate and a full-time professional tutor with many years experience. - Which subject(s) do you teach? History, English Language, English Literature, Academic Writing, Entrance exams. I also offer academic proof reading for essays, dissertations, theses and articles.
I retired from teaching in 2006 after 34 years in the job and since then I have been tutoring on a regular basis. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach History, Government & Politics, International Relations and Religious Studies (but only to 13+ and Key Stage 3). - Tell me about your qualifications.
I base my classes around each student's needs and so the structure can vary depending on what exactly they hope to gain from it. For example, I can offer targeted assistance and feedback when working towards a particularly assignment, or similarly, I can provide longer term coaching if building towards an exam.
I believe in every student gaining clarity in fundamental concepts before proceeding to more specific cases. I tailor my classes to student needs and enjoy interactive and enthusiastic students. After going over the syllabus, I will come up with a weekly structure that will involve both discussions as well as written exercises to substantially train students in their chosen study area.
My teaching style is very conversational and relaxed, looking at slowly building confidence by explaining, showing examples, with contextual information added for depth of knowledge and giving the basis of the knowledge. Running through examples is a key part of my tutoring before moving on to discuss and query the question in detail.
I would prefer to teach A-level and secondary students, mostly because I aim to teach one of these age groups in the future. However I would be open to tutoring degree students whose modules match my areas of expertise.
I have a PhD, MPhil and BSc. I am friendly, encouraging, patient and, most importantly, I know how to impart knowledge. Everyone learns differently so I tailor my services to each individual. Above all, I make learning interesting.
My method of teaching is to encourage students to read around a topic prior to a lesson. The next lesson will then consist of a short lesson around the topic, before initiating discussion and debate about the topic. For students sitting exams such as GCSE or A-Level, I will regularly test the student's knowledge and approach to essay writing.
I take a hands-off calm approach to teaching, giving you the information, intellect and technique to teach yourself how to succeed in history. Fellows in College have praised me on my listening and patient nature and my want to help them. I will give you the skills needed to succeed in history.
I will teach up to graduate level. Where politics is such a fluid and ever changing subject, my aim to is equip my students with the tools necessary to effectively understand and analyse complex political situations and events.
I make extensive use of primary sources, drawing upon different forms of media that reflect a range of historical and cultural viewpoints and biases, in order to develop a student's ability to critically analyse and confidently argue their own interpretation of the evidence.
I have an enthusiastic and open approach to teaching, covering the 18th Century right up to the late 20th Century. I encourage students to think critically and develop their own ideas, this is especially important when studying History.

I am an attentive and patient teacher using varied methods of instruction, including conversation, presentations, interactive worksheets and games and using different resources (online, literature, media). I believe in a two-way teaching methodology, with a lot of discussion with the student and active dialogue to ensure understanding and enable me to tailor the lesson to the individual.
In tutoring students, my approach is highly interactive in order to engage the student into a learning environment where they will feel comfortable and relaxed. In doing so, this nourishes a greater desire to learn with the stress removed.
I believe in tailoring the session to suit the individual; each student is unique and learns differently so I will adjust my teaching approach, techniques and materials accordingly. I will work collaboratively with the student to develop a learning technique that is right for them.
I offer a bespoke approach to the study of politics and related disciplines. As politics is such a broad and contentious topic I base my tutoring around the needs of each student, rather than adhering to a static syllabus. I have a particular fascination with the emergence of 'new' terrorism and completed my dissertation on this topic.
My teaching method is centred around student engagement and repetition of material that will be tested - be that words, numbers or formulas - in fun, creative and engaging ways. I find this gives the students the best grasp of a topic or issue.
Each session will be guided by what you would like us to cover. In our first session, we will go through the expectations you have of me as a tutor, your exam board/syllabus, and we can set targets for a timeframe and schedule that you are happy with.
My method is by using more humorous ways to remember things and with repetition on these they have been proven to make memories last longer.
My teaching methodology is centred around ensuring that the student has a holistic understanding of the given material, and is fully equipped to explore the subject further in their independent study. Lesson format can be flexible, and adapted to the needs of the individual student, but with a primary focus on generating discussion and development of their writing skills.
My classes are tailored to the needs, interests and abilities of each student. Everyone learns differently and I take this into account when planning lessons, reviewing written work and ensuring students understand what is required of them. I try to make learning as interesting as possible. I also like to leave students with some broader study skills to enable them to work well in the future.
I give lessons to all age ranges - from primary to pre-university levels. My focus is always on ensuring the student has a good understanding of each topic/subject area. Any topics of difficulty are returned to little and often to ensure the student has a good grasp of them, while sticking to the required learning. I am very patient and understanding.
My teaching methods have always been student centered. I teach with an interactive style that engages the students to participate. My classes are informative, yet spiced with some humor, in order to keep the learning fun, as it always should be.
When it comes to teaching methods I believe in a student-centered approach and cooperative learning alongside with a high tech approach to learning, making the subject fun and entertaining , because that's when you learn the most. This is why I'm fond of using game based learning as well where I challenge my students to point out historical inaccuracies in popular media for example.
While admittedly I have no prior experience of tutoring, I am very passionate about making learning enjoyable and adaptable for my students. I have a large quantity of notes and text books on History, English and Media Studies, varying from intermediate to academic, which I will use during my lessons.
I am from the United States but I have lived in four other countries, where I tutored many different students; refugees, local citizens, expats, businessmen and women, etc. I am very patient and creative with my teaching methods. I enjoy working with high school and university students.
I feel that it is best to approach tutoring in the least intimidating way possible - after all, we as tutors ourselves are not hugely different in age from the students being tutored! Therefore I try to get to know the student as well as possible in terms of their abilities, and where they may or may not feel comfortable, checking over all areas of the syllabus first to spot any gaps in knowledge...
I am currently in my third year at the University of Dundee studying for a MA Hons degree in History. I have also taken various modules in both Geography and Politics. I am also on the path to undertaking a teaching degree in order to teach history at secondary school level. I am happy to help with any content based learning as well as essay writing and exam preparation.
