Private Tutors in Dorset and Tutoring in Dorset
HI, I'm Mark and my passion is helping people to love learning and to build confidence. My role as a tutor is to identify your strengths and weaknesses and then to design personalised learning to help you to make progress. I have three decades of experience as a senior teacher in the independent sector teaching English language and literature from ages 11 - 18, Drama GCSE, Theatre Studies A level and BTEC Performing Arts. In addition, I am an experienced examiner in GCSE English Language and Literature, English and Theatre Studies A level. Throughout my teaching career I have prepared students for examination at every level, from 11+ and Common Entrance through to A level and university entrance. Much of my career has been spent working with sixth form students and I am happy to offer Oxbridge interview preparation as well as assistance with UCAS personal statements. As a former Director of Digital Learning at a senior independent school, I have a great deal of experience in online learning. Of the A-Level students I taught online last year, four have places at Cambridge, UCL, Warwick and Bath and the other two have places at the prestigious drama schools, RADA and Bristol Old Vic.

Hello! My name is Will and I have recently completed my NQT year teaching mathematics in Weymouth to students aged 11-16, including GCSEs. This experience has taught me a lot about the unique learning styles of children and how I can adapt my teaching in a way to benefit them. I am able to provide support and reinforce learning that has been done in the classroom in accordance to the National Curriculum to ensure a stronger level of understanding when you leave compared to when you arrive.

An English / Literature / Media Studies teacher with 18 years' experience, I am equally able to help students progress from GCSE Grade 3 to Grade 6 as I am to help students pushing to Grade 8 or 9 for their final exams. I am happy to come to the homes of students, or teach in mutually aged locations (libraries, coffee shops, etc.) as preferred to provide tuition sessions between one and three hours long. I currently teach 80% of a full timetable as Coordinator for KS4 at a 11-18 school in Bournemouth, but can work with students in evening, or holiday periods. Having worked as a Head of English and Head of Media Studies, and also having examined both GCSE and A Level in both subjects, I have an up to date familiarity with AQA and EDUQAS (WJEC) exam boards and References are available upon request. For the highest rate, I can teach small groups of 2-3 students if required.

Hi there! I'm Pip. I'm currently a secondary school Geography teacher at a school in Dorset, teaching KS3, GCSE and A Level. I'm originally from Northumberland, but have been living in Dorset since 2018. I am able to provide online support for students completing home learning set during the lockdown, or provide additional resources to support learning. I have experience coaching GCSE and A Level students in revision and exam technique, as well as supervising A Level independent investigations. I am also offering English and History tutoring for primary-age/KS3. I hope that the reduced rates I'm offering will allow students to access any additional help they need during this extended period of home schooling! Currently, I'm able to be pretty flexible with times and days to fit around your schedule, and may also be able to offer support with other subjects on request. I look forward to hearing from you; please feel free to send me a message for further information or to discuss.

Hello, I'm Harry and I'm currently studying maths and computer science at A-Level and am thoroughly enjoying it. I would love to have the opportunity to tutor those who are currently studying at the GCSE level and below. In my GCSEs I achieved the grade of an 8 (equivalent to A/A*) in both maths and computer science so I understand what it takes to achieve the higher levels that students strive for. I have personal experience with tutoring also, as I have been tutored in the past so I understand the needs of the tutee and the best methods to help every student learn to their maximum potential. Any inquires, don't hesitate to get in touch.

My name is Laura. I am 21 years old and live in the South West of the UK. I am a motivated, charismatic and academic individual who would love to help young people achieve their learning goals. I have no prior experience with teaching or tutoring, and as such I will be starting my sessions at the low price of £10 per hour. I am more than happy to come to a clients home for sessions, for clients to come to my home, or to have sessions online. My teaching style is holistic. I appreciate the students mood and possible learning difficulties and match my learning style accordingly. As a female with ADHD, I understand the potential difficulties others with this condition may face within a school environment and this allows me to be sympathetic. I am a firm believer in the importance of past papers in revision and as such my tutoring will most likely be focused around this. Please message me if you have any questions regarding my teaching. Thank you for considering me! :) Laura

As a secondary English literature and language teacher, I understand how much is on a student’s plate and know that the 1-on-1 tutoring services I can provide will, not only, help you in your English studies but also in your approach to your other subjects. I have been a teacher for 4 years and like to use well planned, personalised resources to make sure all my students get the best chance at their academic exams. Considering I am still teaching full time, I am as up to date as possible on what your curriculum and exam boards, particularly Pearson Edexcel IGCSE and AQA GCSE, ask of you and will be able to give you the tools you need to do the best of your ability. I have experience with a variety of abilities and will be able to tailor our sessions to fit your individual learning style, be that question and answer style learning, flipped learning, walk through exam responses or planning strategies.

I recently achieved first-class honours in Criminology from the University of Southampton. Currently, I'm undertaking an MA in Political Psychology at Bournemouth University. My specific area of interest is how criminal activity and the varying dimensions within politics intersect. In my spare time, I like to read and craft. I'm also apart of a local field hockey team, which is great for maintaining my fitness and provides a great opportunity for socialisation. I believe learning is done best through discussion. This method promotes problem-solving and in the process facilitates student confidence. Confidence is equally as important as subject knowledge when undertaking exams. This method of teaching is highly adaptable to students needs.

I am an experienced Head of KS5 Biology at a grammar school in Dorset. I have 7 years experience teaching Biology and Science in general, and two more tutoring prior to becoming a teacher. I believe in helping students through questioning. There will be very little of you listening to me lecturing. Instead we will talk through a subject one stage at a time, drawing out the knowledge that you already have and building on it to ensure your confidence. I then finish off with a couple of exam questions to prepare you for your future tests, and to show you that you have successfully completed the topic.
|Online tutor:||I tutor with Zoom but I have used Teams.|

Hello, my name's Sam, and I hold a 1st Class Bachelor's degree and Master's in Physics from the University of Warwick. I have loved Physics and Maths since secondary school (where I obsessively watched Brian Cox!) and have become incredibly passionate in using it to explore and experience the universe around us. More importantly, however, I am devoted to sharing this passion and wonder with my students and helping them reach their full potential, whether it's for GCSE or A-Level. I have over 150 hours of experience in tutoring and am building on this each day. I endeavor to be a very versatile tutor so that my methods match each unique student.
