    Nick B

    Experienced tutor of geography and geology to 'A' Level.
    £41/hr

    I have spent over 30 years teaching in secondary schools in various parts of the UK (in both the state and independent sectors) teaching both geography and geology to university entrance level. At my previous school our geology department was awarded the best school in the U.K. by the 'Good Schools Guide' for its 'A' Level results! As an educator my approach initiates student-centred learning involving debate and discussion, avoiding being merely a dispassionate purveyor of facts. As a teacher, I prefer not lecture but encourage guided self-discovery with any student. My approach is more ‘the g...

    Experienced online and distance learning tutor
    £50/hr

    I am an experienced tutor and have been working in Somerset for the last fifteen years. In the past I have tutored students who cannot access full-time education for different reasons (health, mobility, faith and behavioural, for example) and always try to tailor my tuition to the individual's needs.I have worked as an examiner for both A level (chemistry), GCSE (sciences) and SATS (maths) so this means I am able not only to tutor the subject but also improve examination technique. Mathematics and all three sciences can be covered at GCSE in any combination and I have gained a sound working knowledge...

    Making Primary Maths and Science fun
    £32/hr

    I am a fully qualified, retired primary school teacher with a passion for Maths, Science and Technology. I began my BA.Hons degree and teacher training as a mature student In Cardiff. During this time in Cardiff University, I become fascinated by the Scandinavian approach to learning , which is very child centric and child driven, focusing on play and exploration in the early years. Although Swedish children start formal schooling a year or so later than their English counterparts, generally speaking by the age of 7, Swedish children have far higher levels of literacy and numeracy, not to mention...

Elizabeth C
Elizabeth is a knowledgable and patient tutor that has guided me through the basics of piano over the last few months. I began with no musical experience but am steadily improving as a result of our weekly sessions that have continued throughout the pandemic via Skype. I am thoroughly enjoying the process and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Elizabeth to anyone.

Paul E
Paul has been tutoring my son fir French online and I have to say its one of the best investments I have made in helping my childs confidence with the language. Not only is Paul a great communicator when it comes to keeping me in loop how my son is progressing.. Paul is extremely patient with my son and each lesson has been carefully planned out  to accommodate my son level of understanding. The encouragement Paul gives has truly helped to build my sons confidence with speaking and writing french. I highly recommend Paul if you want to improve your French language and written skills or if like my son your new to the language and in need of support.
