Personal Description:
I am French and mother of 2.
In 2004 I registered with OFSTED to teach French to young children, being ofsted registered gives parents the peace of mind that I have a CRB and allows parents to pay me with Childcare vouchers if they have a scheme at work.

Teaching Experience:

I used to tutor French to adults when I lived in Czech Republic and Germany 15 years ago.

From 2004 I taught mostly children and toddlers and since 2009 I am teaching an increasing number of GCSE students, A Level and adults of all levels.
I cater for all students irrespective of ability including those with challenging needs.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is adapted to the student ability. I use a lot of very varied resources and try to make the tuition fun.

The fee stated is for tuition from my home. If you wish to have tuition from your home or office please add 5.00 + taxi cost (if more than 15 minutes walk).

Personal Description:
I enjoy all aspects of English Literature, the research process and critical analysis. My most recent teaching has concentrated on sixteenth century texts, including Shakespeare's 'King Lear', 'Hamlet', 'Romeo and Juliet' and Webster's 'The White Devil.' I have also recently taught Oscar Wilde's novel 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby.'

Currently, I work as a note-taker for university undergraduates who have sight or hearing impairment or a specific learning disability. I enjoy this work immensely as I go along to support students in lectures and seminars in a diverse range of subjects including Philosophy, Psychology, Law and Sports Development which I find very interesting and rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

At a Sixth Form College, I have taught GCSE English (AQA Board); English Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2 (OCR Board); a Government unit on Public Services Level 3 (Edexcel) and Public Service Skills Level 2 (Edexcel).
I have also been a Personal Tutor for 16-19 age group at a Sixth Form College.

Tutoring Approach:

I set objectives, plan targets and evaluate progress and achievement. Reflection plays a key part in the teaching and learning experience. I am flexible and can adapt the learning programme to suit the learners' needs. I will also bring a great deal of enthusiasm to make the learning experience interesting and enjoyable.

Last year, tutees achieved excellent results; this was a result of the high standards adopted and expected of the student matched with lots of hard work.

Personal Description:
I am a native French tutor with over 20 years experience in training, coaching and lecturing.
I am currently the official tutor for Newstead Wood grammar and I also support a number of students from Bromley High school and Sevenoaks school. I have received consistent high level of positive feedback from parents and teachers alike and am passionate about teaching, ensuring my students get the highest marks and making it into a fun and rewarding experience.

Testimonials

I am currently studying A level French and I am very pleased to be able to say that my French has improved more than I ever thought it would since starting tuition with Michel. In just over one month, I have improved by two whole grades, which has been evident from mock exam results in class at school. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Michel because I do not feel embarrassed to ask seemingly simple questions, which I feel I cannot ask in my class at school.
E. H. - Bromley

My daughter who is doing A level French was really struggling before we found Michel. He has really motivated her and has made lessons more interesting . She has 2 hour lessons but she is surprised how quick the time goes. I would highly recommend Michel. I can see he gets pleasure helping his pupils make progress. My daughter`s accent has also greatly improved with Michel`s help.
Mrs G - Croydon

I`ve just received my results and I`m very happy to tell you that I got an A for my French I-GCSE. Thank you for all your help because it really made a difference! - G - Bromley

Hi Michel,
Thank you for your help. I got A* in my French oral! - C. Sevenoaks School

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the sessions, they really helped me get a high grade for speaking and an overall A. Thank you so much - S - Orpington

I have enjoyed Michel`s teaching immensely. I would very much recommend Michel to other students- he`s really quite adaptable and has used some creative approaches to teaching which was really helpful for me.
Karen C. - London

Teaching Experience:

Over 20 years tutoring, coaching, including seven years classroom based training. Currently teaching all ages from beginners to advanced, city professionals including a number of GCSE and A Level students.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher with over thirty years' classroom experience in both Primary and Secondary schools. I have taught in UK state schools as well as overseas.

Throughout my years in schools both home and abroad I have tutored Primary, Secondary and Adult students as a vocation as well as to supplement my income.

Teaching Experience:

My experience includes 12 years teaching English and History to GCSE and A level in the UK secondary system and eight years teaching the same subjects to the same levels in international schools in Italy, Egypt and Kenya.

During this time I have always had a number of students on my books for home tuition to provide extra help in Primary, Secondary and University level subjects.

My English GCSE students last year all achieved A-C grades and my A level History student achieved an A (predicted C after Year 12) and is now at university. In previous years, my A level History students have never achieved less than a C and in 2014, I had a student who reached A* and is now studying the subject at Exeter University.

Tutoring Approach:

In my long experience of tutoring I have seen the benefits in aptitude and confidence that pupils can gain from one-to-one tuition. In the unique one-to-one situation the teacher can inspire pupils to begin at last to see the relevance of subjects they find difficult to grasp in a high-pressure environment like school.

Once the pupil sees the need to master the subject I take them on to the next stage where they can undertake tasks which build up their confidence. It is also a means for me to ascertain what the pupil's strengths are and to build on them.

The next stage is the slightly more painful one of identifying weaknesses and gauging the pupil's awareness of them and motivation to put them right. Once the student and I have agreed which areas need improvement we use lesson time to extend competence and skills by undertaking thinking and written assignments that allow the student to develop these.

Any homework set will advance and reinforce the skills the pupil has been encouraged to bring to the lesson.

Personal Description:
I was a statistician for 18 years before returning to teaching seven years ago.

Teaching Experience:

I teach maths one-to-one, in small groups and in whole classes at several secondary schools in Tyne and Wear as well as at further education colleges, covering all ages up to A level.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy explaining maths at all levels of ability and get real satisfaction from connecting at the student`s level. I believe I`m good at recognising what that level is and being able to adjust my explanations accordingly. I`m pretty relaxed and like my students to feel comfortable during our sessions. My approach is to identify areas of weakness, explain concepts from basics, then do some questions till confidence is achieved.

Personal Description:
I am an élite tutor with a double first class MA (Cantab) from the University of Cambridge, specialising in teaching language to learners of all ages. This includes English, Drama, Spanish, Arabic, French and Linguistics.

At a glance:

- Five years' tuition experience.

- First Class degree from University of Cambridge, MA (Cantab).

- Winner of the Bailey Prize and the Dajani Prize for my dissertation and overall degree at Queens' College, Cambridge.

- Winner of the Lerverhulme Trust and D'Oyly Carte Scholarships at Guildhall School; finalist in the National Theatre's Michael Bryant Verse Speaking Award, and the BBC Carlton Hobbs Radio Award.

- Distinction in Advanced Extension Awards in both Spanish and French

Teaching Experience:

I teach English literature and linguistics to all levels, and English language skills both to native speakers and second language learners wishing to finesse their writing and speaking to a level of professional excellence.

I have had great success teaching Spanish, Arabic and French as foreign languages, including to students who had previously struggled with the subjects. I have a 100% success rate in preparing applicants for Oxford and Cambridge.

As a professional actor working on stage and screen, with an MA from the internationally-renowned Guildhall School of Music and Drama, I also enjoy teaching drama and offer mentoring to drama school applicants.

Aside from five years' varied tuition experience (with impeccable references), I have also taught workshops on drama, Shakespeare and improvised comedy in universities and high schools in Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland and the United States

Tutoring Approach:

Despite high demand for my services, I insist on operating a select client list. This enables me to devote the utmost time and care to what I am passionate about: bringing out the best in those I teach.

My method of working is tailored personally and specifically to each individual tutee, their way of learning, and their goals. I pride myself on the relationships I have with my students, who have ranged from adults learning new languages for personal reasons, to primary school children in need of general help with schoolwork. Only by being friendly and engaging but also challenging and determined can I help them fulfil their potential.

Personal Description:
Raheil, 25, Law and English Literature Graduate.

I have a passion for English and have always demonstrated a keen interest in using language as more than a mere means of communication of the mundane. It should be enjoyed and celebrated for the art that it is.

Teaching Experience:

Undergraduate Law LLB Tutorial participation.

GOALS Top Up University of Glasgow Employee.

Achieved 9 highers and one advanced higher.

TEFL training completed.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is extremely rewarding and satisfying for me. I feel I learn best when conversing about a subject and having someone to guide me through the different aspects of each element, as opposed to being left to my own devices. As such I know the value a tutor can provide in helping a student fully understand and learn whatever their given subject is.

Personal Description:
I spent two years studying physics at Oxford University then transferred to Lancaster University where I achieved first class results in my first year.

I am aspiring to attend graduate school for mathematics or a mathematically related field.

Having excelled at mathematics in school, achieving several perfect scores in my A-Levels and achieving a Top Gold Award in the British Physics Olympiad, I am confident in my knowledge up to A-Level mathematics and physics and am well equipped to help struggling students.

For students looking to apply to Oxbridge/Imperial/UCL/Warwick (etc.), I am happy to help with STEP/PAT preparation.

Teaching Experience:

I was a mentor for several students during my A-Levels and would also take part in PAT revision classes for Oxford Physics applicants. This involved explaining solutions so that others may learn from them (and also having solutions explained to me).

One of my mentees obtained an A grade in their physics A-level, improving from a C grade, allowing them to pursue a degree in medicine.

Tutoring Approach:

My focus starts with making sure the student has a strong understanding of the underlying theory and how it was discovered/derived. Then we may move onto a variety of problems to solve, gradually moving upwards in complexity and making sure to sample all problem types to ensure we have covered all potential exam questions.

Once the student has covered a topic, we will revisit it and summarise it 2-3 times in the coming months to ensure long term understanding and memorisation. This is in addition to having moved on to the next topic.

I am also well read around maths and physics and have some experience with the current career climate and internship opportunities.

Personal Description:
Qualified ESOL teacher offering one-to-one and group tuition. I teach aboard my narrowboat, called Spirited Away, in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside within 4 miles of Rugby. I'm gentle, friendly and dedicated to helping my students make rapid progress. Whether you've just moved here and want to improve your English skills or whether you're working towards an IELTS examination or British Citizenship test, I'm happy to help you.

Teaching Experience:

- Intensive teaching practice and assessment as part of the CELTA qualification at Coventry University
- 2 weeks teaching a group of 30 Chinese students in Coventry
- 9 months working in a primary school in Iringa, Tanzania as an English teacher
- One-to-one classes in Tanzania providing private tuition for local families
- One-to-one private tuition in Peru for 3 months
- 2 months in Rugby providing one-to-one tuition for an Italian student

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is methodical and careful. I'm encouraging and friendly, which helps students to gain confidence quickly. Being based on a narrowboat enables a calm, peaceful and focused environment with little noise or distraction. I don't use other languages and conduct all lessons in English as I believe this is the fastest way to learn.

Personal Description:
I am a professional, conservatoire trained, theatre director, drama and LAMDA teacher based in London. My greatest strengths are my creativity on stage, ability to manage and communicate with people and to generally be an effective leader of different age groups, from Age 5 to Age 65.

My theatre voyage stydying MFA Theatre Directing at East 15 Acting School provided Jacques Lecoq puppet, clown and physical training and core modules examining Shakespeare, musical theatre, opera, comedy, contemporary British writing and actor training which has informed my practice as a teacher and director.

A huge part of my study was on theatre of the East, where I visited Bali, Indonesia for one term to study at Institut Seni Indonesia (ISI Denpasar). Here I had intensive training on forms such as Topeng Masked Dance, Legong Dance, Wayang Kulit and an introduction to Balinese Hinduism and performance cultures along with the opportunity to collaborate with actors, directors and filmmakers, and world-famous industry professionals.

I believe my administrative experience, my sales and marketing capabilities, together with my teaching and theatre qualifications with a healthy dose of imagination and a playful nature have all added to my effectiveness as an director, accomplished administrator, communicator and good all rounder.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked consistently in London theatres and in schools over the last 7 years and most recently have been working as the Artistic Director of Fusion Theatre Company, a company I founded, developing shows, workshops, education packs and training programs for pupils and teachers linking with National Curriculum Topics in order to utilise drama as a tool for learning. Most recently I have set up a LAMDA training section of the company, offering group sessions, duologue and monologue sessions for primary and secondary school.

Although I do the majority of my work within Theatre in Education and drama training, I also am currently the Associate Director of Maverick Theatre, whos mandate is to create reimaginations of classic literature in unexpected places.

Prior to setting up my own company, I was an assistant director, teaching assistant and technical operator at Trent College, for a number of shows, abridging and cutting scripts, marketing the school's productions, organising the shared diary and assisting with general curriculum work, organising year 9 classes and office administration. During that time I also worked as a LAMDA teacher with 14 students of my own, all of whom successfully achieved Grades 2 and 3 at the end of the summer term. During my second year I was given the opportunity to direct my own productions, as well as a substantial pay increase. I directed a sixth form production of "Two" by Jim Cartwright, followed by The Sixth Form Review [a comedy sketch show], a production of "Shakers" by John Godber, and a production of "Equus" by Peter Shaffer, and finally an outdoor theatre production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with a year 7 group. Two years of hands-on experience in education taught me the fundamental rules of theatre, production, discipline and how to motivate others to give their best performance.

Theatre plays a vital role in education to nurture and create opportunities for young people, using the arts as a vehicle to understand the world they live in and the people they are as well as develop crucial life skills. I believe that the most effective way to learn is through theatre and performance and because of this I have an incredible love for youth theatre and working with children and find it extremely rewarding.

Since my study, I have been doing workshops and acting courses with students from University upwards. Whether it be a specific genre of theatre or audition pieces.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is completely guided by the person I am working with. My natural instincts as a teacher are to get the student to relate to the material as well as they can by giving them something to compare it with in their own life. As a student of LAMDA since age five and from my extensive experience as a tutor throughout my career I discovered that by adopting a personal approach to teaching and mentoring, identifying the individual strengths of each student, and harnessing and working with those strengths, I was able to yield some incredible results not just within primary and secondary school but utilising this practice for all ages.

Personal Description:
I am currently an undergraduate History student at the University of Warwick. I have three years of tutoring experience in History, English and Politics. I achieved straight As and A*s at GCSE and have 3 A*s at A Level in English, History and Politics, as well as a B in Maths and a C in Classics.

Teaching Experience:

Tutor for GCSE students in English, History and Maths throughout my A Level studies and tutoring of A level students during my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are engaging and fun. My first lesson will always focus on establishing the current level of the student and establishing their long term goals. At the end of most weeks homework will be set to reinforce the things we have gone over during the lesson. I largely work from mark schemes and exam practices, as the long term goal of parents and students tends to be centred on exam results, but I also believe in the enjoyment of learning and will always focus on making the subjects I teach come to life.
