Private Tutors in Derby and Tutoring in Derby
Hello, I am passionate about reading, writing and teaching and learning. I am a naturally calm, friendly and patient person, which helps to create a calm and purposeful atmosphere and make the learner feel comfortable and confident. I like to plan and structure each tutoring session meticulously so no time is wasted and outstanding teacher and learning is achieved. Furthermore, I create interesting, fun and accessible resources which stimulate and challenge all students at every level. My qualifications include a 2:1 degree, with honours, in English Literature, a PGCE in English and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have been working in secondary schools teaching years seven to thirteen for more than twelve years (ten years were spent in an outstanding secondary school). I have experience of teaching and marking the new 9-1 GCSEs in English Language and Literature, Media and Mathematics. I have worked with a wide range of ability students and I am considered to be an outstanding teacher. My very first Ofsted lesson was graded 'Outstanding', which I am very proud and therefore always attempt to make all lessons outstanding. To relax, I enjoy reading, football, cricket and spending quality time with my family and our dog, Jess. We enjoy long walks in the countryside and learning about history walking around towns, cities and villages.

Hello, I am a fully qualified, DBS checked and experienced teacher with a proven track record of delivering results to students in a range of capacities. I provide a holistic approach to education, which balances student wellbeing and academic progress. My focus is to get to know my student and discover what they need to know, and how they prefer to learn it. This involves completing a free consultation prior to a face to face lesson in order to understand my student`s needs. At all times, the focus of my approach is to bring kindness and compassion to the learning process. I first came into teaching after my own English teacher became such an inspiration to me at school and since moving my career into the classroom, have never looked back. I thoroughly enjoy my job and find great fulfilment in supporting children and young people to reach their goals. No two tutoring journeys are the same, because no two students that I teach are the same. I tailor every programme to the individual learner after a consultation with the student and parent/guardian where applicable. My approach is very holistic and I believe that accelerated academic progress is possible only when a healthy learning environment and motivation for success is nurtured. I have experience of teaching full classes, small groups and individual students at Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, GCSE and A/AS Level. Although my specialism is the study of English and Literacy, I also offer academic mentoring for other essay based subjects at Post-16. I have recently been working on expanding my expertise, so that I am now able to offer tutoring for the 11+ in English. If you are an adult looking for support through tutoring services, I am pleased to be able to offer tutoring in professional English, including preparation for verbal reasoning and other professional qualification assessments, as well as proof reading for essay subjects at degree and post graduate level. Most of my students will choose to have one hour long session per week, but the timing and frequency of tutoring can be matched to individual needs. Tutoring is mainly based in my own home in Derby, where I have a dedicated tutoring space, but can also travel within Derby and most of Derbyshire or offer online tuition via Skype or Zoom. As an in-service teacher, I now also have a wealth of experience in online teaching! For the past twelve months, the whole teaching profession has been able to access a surge of professional learning linked to online lessons and best practice, and this is something I have embraced with open arms. I use a range of platforms to deliver online tutoring, depending on the best fit for each student. What each platform has in common is a firm focus on personalisation and safeguarding everyone involved in the tutoring interaction. This might include using a shared interactive whiteboard, video calls, document sharing or online learning game platforms. It will all depend on the person learning and how they prefer to learn. As with in-person tutoring, my focus is firmly on using kindness and empathy to personalise and expediate the learning process. I live in Derby with two dogs, who are as friendly as they are fluffy! In my spare time I love to read, walk and practice yoga. If you would like to know more, discuss how I can help you or your child, please feel free to get in touch. Kind Regards Emily

A graduate of the University of Nottingham (Economics), I completed my teacher training (at University of Derby) in Mathematics. It`s one of those subjects that is so useful, outside of the realm of mathematics proper but also sometimes quite inaccessible to many and so I like to provide as much support as I can. I find that the beauty of 1:2:1 tutoring is that one can get to know the person learning the subject directly. What is their current strengths? Perhaps even in a separate subject, even. Utilising that to help maths make sense. And, I welcome lots of questions too. I enjoyed delivering training to staff in my previous career and thought I'd look to teaching, which I moved over to in 2017, which I thoroughly enjoy. I've also been able to deliver an online GCSE Maths programme at my college, and have engaged in some exciting research in engaging students in mathematics and developing problem solving. I've been been tutoring now for 8 years (although there was a quiet spell thanks to the dreaded COVID!) and it's one of the best things ever! I can't wait to meet you.

I have over 15 years teaching experience within Drama and Performing Arts across a range of qualifications. My degree was in Drama and Theatre Studies and English Literature and I'm able to adapt to to both subject areas very well. I am an excellent communicator and believe that the best learning is individual and personalised, this forms the main method I employ when teaching. I will engage with students and create bespoke resources for them that they can keep.

I am a 22-year-old, enthusiastic new tutor who has recently graduated with a First Class in mathematics from Keele University. I have a passion for teaching maths to people who don't find it comes very naturally to them, and it's incredibly rewarding watching students find the excitement in maths that I have always felt for it since I was young. I find that the small age gap between myself and the students helps me to relate to them and help them understand the topic at hand with ease.
