I offer personalised online tutoring to primary aged students, whether they have specific gaps in their learning, learn in a certain way, or are capable of achieving more with the right help.
Online tuition allows me the opportunity to share my highly effective teaching strategies to help children around the world achieve success in their learning. I create engaging learning experiences in my online platform, with a range of activities to bring learning to life, keeping my students inspired.
I have over 8 years of international classroom teaching experience and I am accredited in Scotland and British Columbia, Canada. During my time teaching in The United Arab Emirates I was presented with an Excellence for Education Award. This was in recognition of my outstanding achievement and excellent educational performance in the Emirate Schools Council. My exemplary teaching practices allow for successful tutoring sessions, equipping children with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to excel in their learning.
I am delighted that you have chosen me to work with your child and I cannot wait to equip them with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to be very successful learners!
I am a qualified Maths Teacher and an online Tutor. I use a variety of techniques and resources in order to teach and inspire minds. I am fully DBS cleared and have taught through the changes in education over the years and am fully knowledgeable in the current 9-1 GCSE specification. I am comfortable teaching all walks of learners and try my 100% best to make sure that learning is relevant, engaging and fun.
I have a plethora of resources so that students hit their target grade or beyond. In my experience, students tend look at questions as a big problem rather than thinking that questions are made up of smaller steps within a problem. Each student will receive an individual plan at the start of lesson one.
I am also a GCSE Expert Examiner for Edexcel, marking both Foundation and Higher Maths. I also teach at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 2.
I am able to teach online and comfortably at your home, however, due to the current situation with COVID, I prefer to teach online. I use a Huoin pen and tablet with an onscreen whiteboard. I will provide full resources; questions, answers, solutions and exam papers relevant to your exam specification. I teach all topics in Maths and keep up to date with any new developments with exam boards.
I have been a Middle Leader, a Lead Practitioner, a Director of Learning, and have led successful STEM classes and am passionate about the subjects surrounding Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. I also run a debate team at my current school; have been a finalist at The University of Leeds three consecutive years with “Solutions for the Planet” programme and have taken students as finalists at The Houses of Parliament with a solution on sustainability.
Hello, I am Yushi Zhang. You can call me M.. I have three higher education degrees in chemistry, and the recent one was a science master got from Queen’s University Belfast in 2020, studying in material chemistry, and I achieved a 2:1 master’s degree.
With more than 9 years of experience, I gradually grow into a senior secondary and undergraduate maths&science teacher, especially in chemistry, and I am adept at stimulating students' interest in science and improving the grades.

I am a fully qualified primary teacher currently in my fourth year of full time teaching with a Reception class. My specialities are in Early Years and Key Stage 1 and I also have a specialism in Special Educational Needs on my degree. I have lead phonics accross a year group and I see phonics and early literacy as my strongest subjects to teach. I teach in a multi sensory way and will make it as engaging and as personal as I possibly can. I will also try to bring children's interests into their learning. I have a lot of experience teaching children with a range of learning difficulties including having completed placements in special schools and had experience in a speech and language unit. I currently teach a class with a wide variety of special needs including autism, development delay, speech and language disorder and dyslexia.
I have been teaching for nearly 11 years, specialising in Art and Craft at GCSE and A level. I have a PhD in Art Education and a first class honors in Fine Art. I work for AQA exam board so I understand the mark scheme very well for all arts courses and this helps me to get excellent results for my learners. I also have an MA in Creativity for the professions. I have studied photography and critical www.*** ;I have taught in the UK, Finland, the Congo, France and Tuscany.
I am a very personable, friendly and encouraging person. I love supporting students and helping them to reach their potential. My wrldwide travel has really broadened my perspective and made me a well balanced, rounded individual who sees the best in every learner.
I have a wealth of tutoring experience, so I can cater to all ranges and ability www.*** ;

www.*** my maiden name is Smith hence my certificates are under this name.
I have been teaching for many years now, privately and in independent schools, with pupils at many different levels, ages and circumstance. I run several woodwind chamber groups, covering flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and saxophone, which gives me a well-rounded knowledge of all woodwind www.*** have taken my pupils through many exams; theory, piano and oboe, all showing fantastic results. Recent successes include 98% in Grade 5 theory and 96% in Grade 7 oboe. But I also teach people 'just for fun!', so can adapt to whichever you need.
Music has always been hugely influential and something I have felt a lot of passion for from a very young age. To even have a background in music is incredibly beneficial throughout life, and I find it thrilling how I can pass on my knowledge so that others can benefit this way.
Since I began learning the oboe and piano, I have fortunately received fantastic tuition from many world renound musicians. I think it is important for a teacher to inspire, be fully involved and motivate the student, to ensure they look forward to lessons and enjoy practice www.*** much as they can!
I try to keep lessons lighthearted and fun with the idea of pushing the student at the same time - I hope that my former students agree! It's really important to me to build a good rapport with my tutee, as it makes learning efficient and a pleasant www.*** ;
From the world class education that I have received myself, I have luckily picked up many tricks and tips about teaching the 'correct' way and would love to carry on passing this knowledge to allow students to have a great time playing their instrument!
I'm a professional Music lecturer and tutor, Guitar teacher and Bass tutor based in the West Midlands. As a Music tutor/instrumental tutor I have 1000+ hours of teaching experience, I hold a Popular Music Degree and in a College employment setting I have 14+ years experience of teaching college students from ages 16+ to adults in a range of levels (1-5).
I know every student’s journey is different, and my aim is to meet each student where they’re at, learning through Music we discuss their aims and develop the curriculum to develop their understanding.
As a musician I play in a variety of bands and performance situations as well as session work for bands and for artists up and down the UK.
I’m a Bass player for a Midlands based punk band who have released three albums and with this I have played festivals around the UK.
I play Guitar for a folk/rock band, a high end function band and also for a Queen tribute band.
As a teacher I work closely with pupils to develop personal goals, and work together on a simple plan on how to reach them. I believe understanding the reason the student is taking lessons and playing guitar/bass or embarking on other musical developments is fundamental to providing quality tuition, so I strive to create plans with the pupil to support their aims. Each lesson always keeps the pupil’s individual goals at its centre, and is created to develop musical fluency.
Ultimately I teach the student to teach themselves by understanding core musical concepts and developing a base of fundamental skills, these include; Ear Training - learning how to recognise the chords in any given song by ear; Strumming and Picking/Fingerpicking Technique - fluency with all standard right hand techniques is a must, and I teach these prioritising what is commonly used in their favourite styles; Reading TAB as well as Staff notation.
Creative Playing, Song Writing, and Improvising is my favourite area of playing and teaching as it helps learners find their own voice! I help to build knowledge of music theory in a practical and applicable way, exploring new concepts that will enable students to discover new sounds.
Again, this is catered to their aims - if they wish to write songs we'll look at some of their favourite artists/genres, see what they're doing, and set some aims for targets to write using some of their techniques.
If learners want to improvise, we'll explore some of our favourite improvisers - what scales to they use, how do they shape their phrases, and what articulation techniques are employed.
If learners have experience playing but need to improve techniques I can show drills and exercises that will make them a better player.
We explore a lot of aspects - from how to move economically; where to have tension and where to avoid it; tonal possibilities as well as how to structure your practice so you get the most for your time, whether you have a little or a lot.

My background and journey
Before working for myself I ran a youth work charity in Cumbria for 10 years, and also worked to empower young people to become active with volunteering in their local community. I taught Psychology at GCSE, A-level, Degree and Post Graduate levels. I have also worked within the homeless sector and within the adult education system coordinating learning support in the same role a SENDCO would have in a www.*** ;
My areas of expertise are in dyslexia, trauma and mental health, confidence building, motivation and one to one work. My ability to think outside the box when engaging people means that I capture peoples imagination and show them how they can motivate themselves to be successful. My experience in the Army has also honed my self determination and efficiency.
I am dyslexic, although I wasn’t assessed until I was an adult, I always suspected that I viewed the world in a slightly different way to others. I suspect I have elements of other SpLD's too which means that I have to put more effort into everyday life than most people. This means that I can truly empathise with the people I work www.*** ;
My adventure with dyslexia has taught me to understand that what I have to offer is unique and valuable because of my dyslexia, not despite my dyslexia! This is what I want to teach to our everyone in our community who is also www.*** ;

I am a qualified English Literature and Language teacher and Teach First ambassador, specialising in secondary schools (years 7-13), since 2012, and prep schools (years 4-8) since 2018. I also teach mathematics up to and including Upper KS2: Long Division, Common Factors, Common Multiples, Prime Numbers, Mental Calculations, Square and Cube Numbers and more for that Key Stage.
I have been tutoring one-to-one since 2015 and found, since the 2020 lockdown, that tutoring online can be just as beneficial if not better for several reasons: no travel for either party; shared resources online rather than requiring a printer, therefore saving paper; allowance for different ways of communicating rather than just speech - for example, silent discussions through typed notes that can be edited, saved and stored immediately - which is especially beneficial for students with speech impairments or those who communicate better through writing.
I have been working for a home-education group in the woods near to where I live since September 2019 and have continued to learn and explore the importance of creativity, immersion in a task and a level of autonomy on a student's learning path. I aim to reproduce what I have learnt in my years of experience to offer online tutoring lessons for both individuals and groups.
My experience spans from working in one of the most poverty-stricken provinces in Buenos Aires in 2010 as an English tutor for disadvantaged children, to working as the private tutor for my school's Sheikh's son in Qatar during my three years working in a British international school out there. (2015-2018.) I am interested in all people from all walks of life and all educational backgrounds.

Teaching is my vocation and I am committed to investing a great amount of time and effort into professional development, craftingpedagogy, curriculum knowledge and a deeper understanding of the education landscape including the changes to the new Ofsted framwork. I place great emphasis on fostering positive relationships with my students, always identifying new ways to meet their needs, and developing the whole child, whether that be academically, socially or emotionally. Pupils leave my class as happy and confident individuals with a thirst for knowledge to develop their enquiring minds.
I graduated from Edge Hill University in 2003 with a BA (hons) in Primary Education and Physical Education with QTS. In 2012 I was awarded The National SENDCO award. I have more than 17 years teaching experience in years KS1& 2, including Y6. During my career I have held additional curriculum responsibilities for PE, DT, Science, Maths, SEN and Computing, I also hold Maths Specilaist Teacher accredication (MAST). Leading these subjects has allowed me to work closely with other colleagues to shape the curruculum design and delivery by creating schemes of work which are exciting and fun, enriched with first hand experiences. Most recenlty, in my current school, I was fortunate to support Teachers developing the Maths curriculum form EYFS and KS1. I was able to provide support and guidance so that colleagues could implement to better meet the needs of their pupils in these critical early years. The positive outcomes afforded me the opportunity to then support whole school maths with a specific focus on the more able pupil where I was able to eviedence a signifficant improvement in results. I found these experiences very informative and rewarding.
As an experienced Teacher, I recognise the importance of robust systems and processes, I use formative and summative assessments in addition to marking books to track and monitor pupil progress. I forensically analyse data to inform my planning, ensuring there are no gaps and pupils have a secure knowledge before moving onto the next topic. I aim for lessons to be well thought and purposeful with the right balance of pace, in order to stretch and challenge all levels of learners. I believe in delivering high quality lessons that are fun and engaging that require teamwork and participation, I listen to pupil feedback so I understand how they like to learn. I aim to support students address any misconceptions during lessons and promote independent learning, peerand self-assessment in the classroom. I incorporate blended learning and the use of technology my lessons. Recently I have created films about WWII, the plague and many other subjects. I plan lessons to meet the needs of all pupils including those on Learning Plans for SEND and high attaining pupils. I believe in creating a stimulating learning environment where pupils can challenge themselves.
I actively engage and welcome other professionals, including class teachers, teaching assistants, SLT and consultants, to secure my judgements of pupil achievement and lesson observations. I recognise this validation of what good or better teaching looks like enables me to share best practise and maintain a high quality of teaching and learning. Working with others to moderate assessment data also ensures my judgment is accurate, it allows me to reflect on my own practise.
As an active member within the school community I forge strong relationship with all stakeholders including multi agency partners. I have always built strong relationships with parents as I believe this is key to ensuring all pupils can thrive. In my role as SENDCO I line managed a team of support staff and It was my primary role to ensure all students needs are met in line with their EHCP. I was required to be the registered lead professional during reviews and liaise between parents and multi agency to ensure each child was offered the right support inside and outside of school.
Outside of my classrooms I have developed community links by taking a lead role in enrichement and after school clubs. I am a level 2 Football and Cricket Coach. In my previous school I led the football,cricket and running club. I have a love for sport and understand the importance of instilling healthy habits in children and the positive effects it can have on their mental health and wellbeing. Through my involvement in these sports I have developed good links with other schools, both primary and secondary whereby pupils have been able to competively take part in a variety of sporting fixtures. I thoroughly enjoy working with children during these extra-curricular activities as it not only teaches them new skills but the children also get the chance to shine when using existing skills. In addition to this, the children learn life skills such as; social skills, speaking and listening skills, teamwork, tolerance and develop leadership skills. I always look to involve myself in the delivery of clubs regardless of my role in school.
As well as sporting clubs, I have organised Maths clubs using exciting problems. One area that I am passionate about is engaging and including parents in the curriculum. I delivered parent Maths classes to provide skills and confidence for parents supporting their children with their homework. It proved to be very popular with parents and children notebaly, parents became more engaged with the work their children were doing. The importance of opeing up the classroom for parents anddeveloping these links has direlcty contricbuted the young peoples confidence in their educartion. I would be very keen to secure these links again.
I hope that I have evidenced my love of teaching and demonstrated my work ethic as an outstanding practitioner.

Learn how to play at your own pace with lessons tailored to your own ability and ambition. Learning piano is both fun and fulfilling, and every effort is made to engage younger pupils and spark their interest in music.
I love learning and, equally, to inspire this feeling in others too. I also strongly believe that social development and creativity are as important as academic learning. If you are reading this, you must be considering getting help with learning of some sort, whether for you or for someone close to you. It would be a privilege to help!
I worked as a primary school teacher for 14 years and loved sharing the learning journey with the young people I taught. My approach is often playful – there is so much to be learnt using games and humour – and success relies on building relationships, agreeing goals and together working out how to reach them. Sometimes the goal might just be to travel forwards and enjoy the journey; at other times there may be a more specific target.
The best moments as a teacher are “the lightbulb moments” when something clicks in the learning and new connections are made. My goal is always to instil self-confidence in learners, to build positively on what they already know and can do, and to help them to believe that they can learn whatever they want to learn.
I am a qualified and experienced teacher. Although I have worked in secondary/ middle schools, the majority of my teaching has been in primary schools. I have worked in mainstream schools with a wide range of children. I have coordinated enrichment programmes for gifted and talented pupils. I have supported pupils preparing for grammar school exams. I have written and managed education plans for learners with dyslexia and dyscalculia, autistic spectrum conditions and other social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
As a class teacher, I taught across the spectrum of the National Curriculum, with particular focus on progress in Reading, Writing and Maths. As the school coordinator for the teaching and learning of English for many years, I rolled out various strategies to develop reading for pleasure and to make the learning of grammar and spelling fun, fun, fun! Prior to that, I enjoyed roles as the school lead on Science, History and DT. However, my guilty pleasure is a love of numbers, the application of Maths, in games and puzzles, and the Art of Maths.
I am a parent, the most important job/ experience in the whole world.
Prior to teaching, I was an architect. More recently, I have established myself as an artist, specialising in the publication of greeting cards and fine art prints.

Being in full time teaching has meant that I have kept up with the latest developments in education.
I have always been responsible for developing my own lessons and schemes of work, and have spent time in a previous position supporting less in experienced teachers develop their experience in both this field
An area I have specialised in during my time teaching in the primary sector has been working with children who have Special Educational Needs. Children who have both behavioural issues and purely Educational needs. I was Sendco at a previous school, which involved setting up and monitoring literacy programs for children with reading difficulties and phonic recovery groups. I worked with the class teacher to identify children who would benefit from these extra sessions. I liaised with outside specialist teachers and was responsible for writing and following through EHCP’s through the school.
One area of achievement I have been particularly praised for during observations at my current school, is the quality of questioning that I use to develop the children’s learning. I have also been particularly praised for the quality of the questioning. I also believe it is important to reinforce the positive, in terms of children succeeding in class and behaviour. Expectations of behaviour need to be established, with a sanctions and reward system set up. As a role model myself, it is important to set high expectations if I expect it from my students. By providing creative and interactive lessons, children will be stimulated, which in turn motivates them to learn. This offsets any potential behaviour issues.
I believe that using creative teaching strategies can be a powerful platform on which to develop creative thinking. These can provide opportunities to build confidence by encouraging pupils to take risks, so removing barriers to learning. An appropriate, balanced, challenging and creative curriculum is essential in developing children’s skills, knowledge and understanding. All of these, I feel, underpin personalised learning. Children should be given every opportunity to take ownership of their learning and I feel that one of the most effective ways to achieve this is through enquiry-based learning. First hand experiences bring learning to life for children and are extremely important in stimulating children’s interest in a way books cannot. For example, visiting a Roman Palace. I have been fortunate to attend training in developing the creative curriculum. This process involves the children developing their learning, and not being afraid to take a step outside of their normal comfort zone.
I am an experienced teacher and tutor, willing to work both 121 or with small groups. I inspire my students to be confident and motivated in addition to learning the skills that they need to be successful. Previous parents and children have commented on how much their child has grown in confidence overall, and their teachers have commented on their increased motivation at school. My tuition is carefully tailored to your child's needs. The beauty of using a 121 tutor is that teaching will be constantly adapted to meet your child's learning style, energy levels and interests. I am trained in NLP techniques and use these in my tuition to increase engagement.
