meet the team at tutor doctor Bedford
Hi! I’m Sarah. I have been with Tutor Doctor since early 2020. Whilst studying at university I discovered a love for teaching and mentoring. Since then, teaching science in secondary schools and running my own science clubs fostered a desire in me to motivate and inspire students to take their scientific education further. Tutoring has allowed me to create interactive and practical sessions that are tailored to the student’s individual needs. I believe that a positive and enthusiastic approach to teaching/ tutoring nurtures these aspects in our students. Seeing my students progress and grow with confidence makes this truly one of the most rewarding professions out there!
Hi, I am Charles. I have been with Tutor Doctor since December 2020. I have always enjoyed teaching and have taught all age ranges A Level to primary. I have always got along excellently with young people! I feel I am especially good at dealing with young people and children who have a difficult relationship with particular subjects or education in general. My friendly and relaxed approach enables my students to re-develop a positive relationship with their subject and learning in general. I hold a BA in English and Creative Writing, as well as an A grade at A Level Mathematics. I have four years of teaching experience in each, from online one to one, to small group in a tuition centre, to larger groups in the classroom.
Hi, I am Sue. I have taught GSCE English and A Level in Secondary School and Adult Education. I have recently achieved a M.A. (Distinction) in English Literature and love to read and learn. I seek to spread this enthusiasm for literature and the written word, in all its forms, in my tutoring. Reading and writing are a joy that allow a student self-expression and to experience multiple viewpoints, and I seek to help my students experience this whilst working towards exam success.
Hi! I am Maisie. I am a tutor with Tutor Doctor Bedford. I’ve previously taught students from ages 5 to 18, all leaving tuition with a love of learning. Primary tuition should be engaging, exciting and fun which is the basis of all my sessions. My aim is for all my students to become confident in their weakest areas, excited to ask questions around topics they are unsure of and motivated to learn independently. In my spare time when I’m not teaching, I play netball competitively and can be found at parkrun on a Saturday morning!
My name is Glenn, and I’ve been working for Tutor Doctor since 2019. I studied Maths and Physics at Manchester University. I also hold a Masters degree from Reading University and a PhD from Cranfield Institute of Technology (now Cranfield University). I am a strong believer in the power of education to transform lives and worked at The Open University for 28 years in a variety of roles, mainly in Student Services but more recently as a tutor on several maths modules. In my work for Tutor Doctor I currently support students in maths. I can cover maths and physics throughout the age range up to A level.
The main motivation for tutoring is the feeling you get when you know you’ve helped a student to understand something they didn’t before and to see links between different topics. I always try to put my students at ease and to find engaging ways of demonstrating new ideas to them.
My name is Lewis, and I am a Mechanical Engineering graduate from Newcastle University, currently working in the Nuclear Energy sector. I tutor in Maths & Physics up to Key Stage 5. I have been a part-time tutor for many years throughout high school, university, and now alongside my graduate role as a Mechanical Engineer. I am a patient tutor and, from personal experience, understand the various strategies students can employ to develop their understanding and thrive come exam time.
Hi! My name's Devon, and I'm in my 4th year of a Medicine degree, with a view to specialise in psychiatry. Having
joined such an intensive course straight after A-Levels, I understand
the pressure a lot of students are under. I am very familiar with the
stress of exams and revision, which gets especially difficult when you
start applying to university, apprenticeships and jobs. My aim when tutoring
is to provide students with the confidence not only to answer questions
and recall, but also to be able to learn and revise in a way that works
for them. This goal aims to help students in a variety of subjects, not
just the one we cover in sessions, by developing their ability to learn
I have over 500 hours of tutoring experience across different platforms and I've built up a good range of resources and notes for science and maths courses from KS2 to A Level. I also have experience working with students with a range of SEN requirements, including autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia, and I'm dedicated to making my lessons an accessible and inclusive space. I’m confident I will be able to help each student in a way that suits them, to help them build confidence and reach their goals.
I'm Caitlyn and I’m a Maths, Latin, and Spanish tutor up to GCSE. I have delivered over 75 hours of teaching with Tutor Doctor, to individuals and small groups. I’m currently an undergraduate Classics student studying Latin and Ancient Greek literature, and in my free time I like to play guitar and netball (although not at the same time!) With my own GCSEs and A-levels quite fresh in my memory, I can easily relate to where students have difficulties. I like to keep my sessions relaxed and fun, by teaching in a way that is both learner-friendly and productive.
Hello! My name is Amyna. Alongside my academic commitments, I have been tutoring for the last 8 years. I have an undergraduate degree in Zoology and am currently studying for a PhD in Zoology at the University of Oxford. I love all things animals, science, and David Attenborough! I believe, to be an excellent tutor, you must constantly share and motivate, by sharing your passion for learning and motivating your students to be the best they can be. These are two qualities that I infuse in all my lessons and interactions with my students. Every student can excel in their chosen subjects and exceed their ambitions – I am a living, breathing example of this! Anything is possible with hard work and determination, no matter the circumstances, and I am extremely passionate about sharing the keys to my success with my students. I have experience teaching KS4: all core subjects + Economics, Health and Social Care, Triple Science, Psychology, Sociology. KS5: Biology, English Literature, Psychology, and Chemistry.
I look forward to learning with you!
I am a former engineer and laser scientist and I love maths and physics. I get great pleasure in providing a creative learning experience and passing my knowledge on to others. I started tutoring and teaching over 30 years ago, whilst doing my D.Phil at Oxford. In the last ten years I have tutored pupils at the following stages: prep school, GCSE, IB, A-levels and Oxbridge entrance papers. I provide focussed one-to-one tuition for your child. I tailor my approach and pace to their individual needs. I have also taught pupils with dyslexia and attention issues. My main aims are to improve confidence and enjoyment in the subjects and to maximise potential.
My name is Kubrah, and I am a tutor with Tutor Doctor Bedford. I specialise in English, offering support on all topics. I also have experience in teaching English as a second language. I have worked with children with dyslexia, ADHD and other learning needs. I use multi-sensory styles of teaching tailored to the individual child’s needs. I am passionate about making learning both fun and educational.
I have been a tutor with Tutor Doctor for over 2 years and have a strong passion for teaching. My subjects are Maths and Sciences up to key stage 4 and I have extensive knowledge of the current curriculum. I currently train as a Chartered Accountant and in my spare time I enjoy socializing, watching films and walking! Alongside this I have a strong passion for teaching and strive to unlock a child’s potential through engaging them in fun and enjoyable lessons. Every learning experience is different and therefore understanding a student’s needs and learning style is crucial in helping them achieve success. Tutors influence a student’s learning massively; one to one learning can provide a better quality of teaching to that within a classroom, therefore finding the right choice of tutor is extremely important.
Hi, I’m Peter. I have been with Tutor Doctor since Autumn 2019. I’ve had a lot of experience in developing students’ confidence and knowledge from difficult periods in their studies to achieving strong results at the end of their courses. I currently work at a high school and a university, having taught English Language and Literature, as well as film and other literacy subjects. I’ve found that working on a student’s confidence, determining where they need to improve, providing a clear rationale for working at the subject, and showing development over time are as important as the lesson itself. I have also seen exactly where the curriculum during the lockdown has not landed for many people, leaving them further behind in the basics of writing and communication than they would ordinarily be. I put this at the centre of my lessons and have had consistently good results.
What I love about tutoring as distinct from teaching is tailoring it to the individual, and the fact that it’s more of a discursive form. Tutoring is better suited to some of the ultimate benefits of studying both language and literature, in the way that the world becomes more readable and clear to the subject. Both tutor and student are more able to incorporate their own interests and life experiences into their understanding.
