Bachelor of Science Early Childhood/Elementary/Special Needs/ Reading Specialist
Over the past 33 years I have helped students to get on or above grade level in all subjects. As a reading specialist I can identify students strengths and weaknesses and come up with a plan to enrich and provide support . I am American teacher with 33 years of teaching and tutoring experience. U.S. Certified Early Years and Primary school. I specialize in phonics, Reading, Math and English tutoring. I teach KG2 at Gems Academy. I founded my own online tutoring business and have been working with students from many of the best international schools in the Middle East for the past 12 years. As a reading specialist I worked for 5 years at Oxford tutoring students of all ages. I can do a complete assessment of your child and identify areas of need and focus on these skils so your child is well prepared for school. I offer Summer Tuition to fill in the gaps so that your child is ready for the next acedemic year.
I adjust my lessons to each individual child depending on where they need the most support. I aim to provide a solid grounding in the subjects while paying close attention to the needs of the individual. An initial meeting establishes the student’s needs and the direction tuition should take. Then we begin work on a programme of study which focuses on filling gaps in knowledge and addressing any areas of weakness. Often, this involves many teaching techniques – the kinds of things that tend not to happen in a busy classroom. I set regular homework – the quantity varying with how much time the student has – and give feedback the following session.
Lori has been very helpful for my child. She has helped us reading and writing and has already moved him 2 levels over the last 3 weeks. She has also developed a bond with my child and he now looks forward to her coming home.
PhD in Molecular Biology (University of Oxford); Pharmacology BSc (1st Class Hons, King's College London); British born and educated.
I am a full-time Science tutor and have a First class degree in Pharmacology from Kings College London and a PhD from the University of Oxford. My general curiosity in Biology and nature has always helped motivate me in my studies and I hope that through tutoring I can inspire and transfer my enthusiasm for science to my students. Due to the nature of my educational background, I have an excellent understanding of the Science subjects and I am adept in explaining complex concepts and ideas in a more understandable and manageable way. I am a friendly, patient and enthusiastic science tutor who has over 8 years of experience in tutoring, mentoring and teaching science to those from the ages of 11 to PhD level. I provide online tuition and have been teaching science at GCSE, iGCSE, A level and university level and have worked with a variety of pupils with various abilities, learning styles, strengths and weaknesses. I have an excellent knowledge and experience of the current curriculum of all major exam boards (AQA, Cambridge, Edexcel and OCR) and teach both Combined and Triple iGCSE Sciences. I have taught many individuals intensively for their GCSE and A-levels in the run up to exams. I also have extensive experience with university students of all academic levels and abilities as well as have a good working knowledge and experience of university marking and assessment systems. I offer guidance to undergraduate assignments specifically helping and advising on laboratory-based and library-based dissertations; evaluating scientific data as well as writing reports / essays.
I provide a personalised tuition programme either online or in the tutee's home and can also provide home schooling/ education during the day. The tuition sessions are very structured and tailored to the needs and learning style of the student, focusing on any weaknesses. These needs are usually pinpointed within the first meeting and I tailor all sessions to the individual specific exam board. I apply a variety of different teaching techniques and styles that I have found to be effective in order to make studying enjoyable, interesting as well as beneficial, helping students to reach and excel to their full potential. My strategy in teaching addresses multiple areas to greatly benefit student's approach to learning which helps build their confidence. These include: - Help students to actually understand concepts and topics (rather than simply memorising facts) - Support with exam techniques, specific exam terminology and definitions that are commonly asked - Extensive exposure to actual exam board specific questions (I have an extensive array of relevant up-to-date educational and past exam papers, split by topic, for all subjects) - Provide support with revision techniques and advice to self learn and self motivate - Assist with composing an effective weekly study schedule tailored and based around the student's extra-curricular activities - Provide comprehensive feedback after each lesson on student's progress, homework results and areas to improve If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me
We would rate him 5 stars!! A FANTASTIC TUTOR!! Dr Stephen has been tutoring my son for iGCSE Triple Science for the last few months and I can honestly say that my sonâ€™s confidence level has increased several-fold. Before we started with Dr Stephen, my son was achieving 3s and 4s. However after a few months of Dr Stephenâ€™s support, care and dedication, his grades have shot up to grades 7s and 8s. Already, his teachers are impressed with his remarkable progress and have predicted a high grade for him. I have been impressed with Dr Stephen`s professionalism, he is very competent in his teaching skills, methods and knowledge and this has positively rubbed on my son. Dr Stephen has been very focused with my son on exam techniques and skills to ensure he can score highly in any setting. I am very comfortable recommending Dr Stephen to any student/parent and he is worth every penny.
Thanks to Stephen, Sciences are finally making some sense and are actually enjoyable for my son ! After multiple unsuccessful interviews with local tutors, we were lucky enough to come across Stephen and honestly he doesn't disappoint. My son had an immediate liking to Stephen and his personality, and directly after the initial interview/meeting we knew he was the man for us to assist our son in his study and preparation for the upcoming exams. After the first lesson, being an initial discussion and review with my son of his current knowledge, Stephen was able to better understand the weaker topics vs those he had more strength in knowledge on and commenced with the weaker core topics first. He reviewed the entire exam syllabus of core topics and secondary topics, with emphasis on those core topics and moving onto the secondary. Stephen moves through onto the next topic, only once my son has a good grasp of the current topic being learnt. Over the past lessons with Stephen, it has become very clear what a huge learning gap there is for us between a classroom teaching style vs a one on one private lesson, and I only wish that we had have sourced him sooner. Although a 2-hour lesson appeared daunting at the time, Stephen has managed to keep my son fully engaged for each of the lessons, regardless of the topic. After each lesson my son is given exam based homework, which reiterates the topics and subject matters covered within the lesson, to be completed prior to the following lesson. The homework is marked and then discussed during the next scheduled lesson, in such a way that he encourages my son to answer and think without just simply providing him the answers. They review the hits and misses and discuss any misunderstandings from each question. Reinforcing the previous works learning, has really assisted with my sons retained knowledge, having that repeat-repeat type of method has been of great benefit. Stephen updates me with my sons progress after every single lesson in a detailed manner, either online or through mail. His knowledge, his passion and his delivery to my sonâ€™s lessons and homework has surpassed my expectation. The commitment, support and persistence of Stephen hasnâ€™t faulted over the many lessons already completed. Nor has never judged my son for the level (grade) at which he is currently achieving, he only encourages him more to strive and to achieve in a positive manner, as if my son was his only student and his only focus. Overall, regardless of the outcome of the exams, the additional knowledge and confidence that Stephen has instilled in my son heading into the iGCSE exams, has had such a positive effect, it is invaluable. I highly recommend Stephen to any level of student studying Sciences.
Dr Lui is a kind, patient, supportive and highly professional tutor. I have met many, many tutors over a five-year period seeking help to support my son and Dr Lui stands out as the best one I have ever employed. His lessons are well planned, enjoyable, interesting and relaxed. Dr Lui struck up an instantaneous rapport with my son, who lacked confidence and motivation towards his science GCSE. He not only makes the subject he teaches interesting, he also inspires and motivates my son to do well. Dr Lui was very clear with his explanation and his pace of teaching depends on whether a certain area of a topic was understood or not. He prepared clear Powerpoints for each session followed by sending exam homework that supports the learning and assesses my sonâ€™s understanding and exam techniques. He would then go through the homework with my son and explains where mistakes were made and how to improve. As a result of 10 months of very engaging and interactive online lessons with Dr Lui, my son went from predicted grades of 6s to achieving three 9s for his Triples Sciences for this summerâ€™s GCSE exams. I would highly recommend Dr Lui to any students lacking confidence, understanding and motivation.

I like to ask open ended questions at the end of each topic covered to gauge what the student really understands and what we need to work on further. The topic of the subject that the student understands well will be tested over time by asking more difficult and engaging questions to show an understanding. On the other hand, the area of the subject that needs future revision will be recapped and different examples will be given such as visual resources.

Her focus as a writer reduced her remit of 500 students a week to one to one sessions, building a reputation as a leading international LAMDA tutor working with the International School of Harrow, The Royal Ballet and British Vietnamese School.
I always start by encouraging students to use and nurture their imagination. From this point I can steer sessions around specific academic requirements and teach subjects 'up on their feet' through the body not just the mind. I work on visual stimuli, encourage structure in writing, timed writing exercises, free writing and presentation skills should students be required to perform a poem or a speech for a public speaking event. This includes techniques supporting the LAMDA curriculum using the voice, articulation and structure of presentation.
About Me: Teaching and training is my passion. I love to teach academically weak but motivated students. I feel great pleasure when my students get A* even though before they were struggling to barely pass their exam. My students have mentioned it several times that what I taught them in a few days, other teachers could not teach them in months. Tutoring Experience: I have over 25 years of experience and I have taught hundreds of students. I have taught martial arts, swimming, yoga, physics, chemistry, maths, add maths, accounts and business studies.

I also offer youth development and corporate training. I have taught in UAE also and on Skype I have students from America, Canada and UK. Presently I am running an educational institute where my team and I offer all types of tutoring and training services.
I always try to keep it real. I have noticed that academic subjects have little connection to students’ lives. To keep it real, I explain the concepts by giving them real life examples. I always look for innovative new ways of teaching, I go through the latest developments in education and take the best from these new styles of teaching and use them in my teaching and training sessions. I never try to use the same method for all the students as they are all different from each other. Some students are able to grasp concepts at a quicker pace than others but I never get despair. I know the importance of being patient with my students and spend a considerable amount of time explaining. If I find that my students have problems retaining information, I use memory retention techniques like mind maps, time lines, graphs, diagrams etc which helps them to visualize so that they can synthesis and memorize the large amount of difficult information. At the same time I encourage my students to analyze subjects in a deeper, more analytical manner to enhance their critical thinking. My aim as a tutor is to create in my students, a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems.
