Hi, I'm Sebastian. My specialist subjects are maths and physics. I have a doctorate in theoretical
physics (cosmology) from the University of Oxford and have also studied
in Sweden, Spain and the USA.
My favourite part of being a tutor is seeing my students grow in confidence, whether we are getting the foundations in place for GCSE or raising the game at graduate level.
Hi, I'm Sally. My specialist subject is English Language focusing specifically on the learning challenges faced by children with autism and dyslexia.
I became a tutor when I realised how difficult it is within a class of thirty children to successfully reach individuals with specific learning difficulties. The advantages of working one to one are immeasurable, reaping rewards for both student and tutor.
One of my proudest, most challenging and rewarding tutoring moments has been with Alfie. He was just beginning Year 8 when we first met and at a good school but, due to autism, his mum was concerned about his progress. I gave him weekly tutoring in English up to Year 11, building his confidence and key learning skills. He exceeded our expectations with his excellent GCSE results in ten subjects including A grades for both English Language and Literature and then proceeded to pass three ‘A’ levels including English. He is now in his second year at Sheffield University studying for a Law degree.
My favourite book is: ‘How to Grow Your own Poem’ by Kate Clanchy. It is a constant companion alongside my work with young people from the age of six to sixteen.
Hi, I'm Ivan. I decided to become a teacher because I love helping young people develop, and enjoy teaching and conveying concepts. My specialist subject is Geography, and I teach through interactive presentations. My one piece of advice for success in education is to always be focused.
My favourite book is The Bible, and my favourite film is The Sound of Music.
Hi, I'm Anaya. My specialist subjects are French and English Literature/Language of all
levels, but also Geography up to GCSE.
I believe in using a holistic approach to achieve the best results from a student; changing their perspective of learning is the most important factor of teaching. I have experience working with Dyslexic and ADHD students.
I decided to become a tutor because I love cultivating beneficial relationships with people - being able to help them is a bonus which overwhelms me with pride!
Hi, I'm Josie. My specialist tutoring subject is French, and I'm bilingual in French
In my spare time, I love to travel, to be out in nature and to learn new languages.
I decided to become a tutor initially for younger students, as I wanted to challenge myself to make each session as creative and as engaging as possible for them. I have been lucky enough to tutor students from 8-years of age, all the way up to adults.
I love the diversity each tutoring job brings and I have also learnt that I am very adaptable to each student’s needs. I have had the privilege of tutoring adults which also includes text translations. I’m currently coaching a businessman with his written/oral French, as he prepares to receive the Order of Légion d'Honneur, which is the highest French order of merit. Even at this early stage, I can confidently say that this is my proudest achievement thus far!
Hi, I'm Mark. I can offer a wide range of subjects up to degree level. I became a tutor
because I love enabling students to reach their potential, and I love
to see my pupils grow, achieve, and soar!
I enjoy horse riding, racing, conservation, and breeding foreign birds.
I truly believe that everyone can succeed!
