Personal Description:
Hello.
My name is Leonor. I am from Spain and 38 years old.

I am a teacher of Spanish and teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. I love my profession and find teaching more a pleasure than a job. I have discovered that teaching is a two way experience where the teacher often learns as much from the students as the students learn from the teacher. For me, teaching languages is a very rewarding experience. I work with a couple of colleagues online, so we can offer more languages tuition, such as English (British English), French, German, Portuguese and Entrance Exams. All of us are native, qualified and experienced.

I am especially passionate about my native language, Spanish. I love not only the expressive beauty of the written Spanish, but the enchanting, musical sound and rhythm of spoken Spanish. The magic of the language of Cervantes is one of the reasons I have dedicated my life to the study of languages, especially Spanish.

Besides a passion for languages and linguistics, I also enjoy traveling and tracing the roots of human history and civilization. I am especially fascinated by ancient history.

Teaching Experience:

1. Bachelor Degree in Teaching English. University of Cadiz, in Spain.

2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of Leon (Castilla Leon), in Spain.

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

I am a member of ELE Congress (Spanish as a Foreign Language).

Several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian) from children to adults, and all cases with really good results (available to show in case of need).

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on the Direct Method, I use a technique of teaching a foreign languages without reference to the students native language. This method of total immersion has been proven to be the most effective means of rapidly developing real language skills. It is recognized as one of the best methods for language instruction and currently used around the world. With this method, students quickly develop the ability to think in their new language. This approach is both easy and satisfying. Student progress is quite rapid. Students progress at their own pace in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. With my method, students will begin speaking their new foreign language from the very first lesson (guaranteed), even if they have never spoken a word of their new language before.

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammars tiresome and less than effective? COME AND TRY MY METHOD, THE DIRECT METHOD!

Personal Description:
Nick is an Oxford English graduate who has worked as a strategy consultant and set up various businesses as an entrepreneur, including raising $5m in funding as Development Director for a military website in San Francisco, developing a 1m property portfolio in Notting Hill and the Alps and providing financial backing for the first two albums by a singer-songwriter from Brisbane, who has now won record deals with Sony and EMI and released a number one single in Greece. In his spare time, he loves playing golf, skiing and dancing:
- He helped win the southern and national team ballroom dancing championships for Oxford University and won a Half Blue for being on the winning team in the Varsity match.
- He spent four ski seasons in Mribel and Val d'Isre and lived in Lyon, where he learned to speak French fluently with the aid of a French girlfriend.
- He also spent 18 months in Brisbane, where he became a scratch golfer, and now coaches privately and at City Golf in London.

Teaching Experience:

He has had over a hundred clients aged between six and 46 whom he teaches English, French, Maths, essay-writing and information technology. He also coaches various sports to friends and colleagues in his spare time, including golf, sailing, ballroom and Latin dancing.

Tutoring Approach:

Nick is based in London but is happy to teach in person at a mutually convenient location and/or give help and advice over the phone or by email. For example, after his golf lessons, he sends his clients email summaries of the points covered during the lessons. Clients have told him he is very patient, and his lessons have been very helpful.

"Thank you so much for your help! And thank you so much for letting me send you my draft and read over it!! I'm a bit clumsy with my sentences, so you reading it will be a great help!!

"You really have helped me in grasping the concept of this essay question and what to include!"

Personal Description:
I have retired to this area where I enjoy living near the sea, and walking. I volunteer at our local theatre/cinema and sing in the choir at our Church in Southbourne. I have three grandchildren, two in London and one in USA and spend what time I can with them, using skype to talk to my family in USA. My husband and I both enjoy gardening.

Teaching Experience:

I am an Oxford graduate with more than 20 years of teaching experience in schools including A level maths and further maths (pure, statistics, and with a particular interest in mechanics). I have also given private tutoring to a large number of pupils from SATs to A levels. Many of those I have taught have returned for help with further exams, or have sent their friends to me, so most of my pupils have come through personal recommendation.

Tutoring Approach:

It gives me great pleasure to help those who struggle with maths to gain confidence and even come to enjoy the subject as well as helping the high fliers get their A grades. I expect pupils to work hard, but think it important to give work that is within their capability so the pupil can feel the achievement of getting things right.

Personal Description:
I believe that I posses valuable qualities such as creativity, enthusiasm, discipline and overall approachability that will enable me to become an effective tutor.

I am approachable and enjoy working one to one with pupils. Pupils find my open manner engaging; particularly when they are finding English difficult.

I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world and engage with people of varying ages and cultures. This has fuelled my passion to work with people.

Teaching Experience:

Since returning home from New Zealand I immediately signed up with Select Education and I was working in Secondary, Primary and SEN schools in South Yorkshire.Working part time allowed me to spend time tutoring students, I took students requiring additional help for Standards and Highers and helped them through their exams, with great success. I also took younger students requiring additional support.

I completed my PGDE in 2011 and I have been teaching ever since. I enjoy every aspect of my job and I teach all levels from BGE, N3, N4, N5 and Higher. I also mark for SQA at National 5 and Higher for both folio and exams too.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my teaching experience I have often worked in one and one situations, and have proven I can work well to encourage students and progress with their learning.

I have worked in many different schools and situations with children and students and I have the ability to adapt to the individual needs of a student to improve their knowledge in their chosen subject(s).

Personal Description:
My name is Leon and I provide training in website design and development - of which I have over 15 years experience in this field gained real commercial projects include those related to names such as Unicef and New Scientist magazine.

My training services allow you to understand all aspects you need to start a career in web design or web development - or to create your open website for your hobby or business. Additionally, I am able to help students studying at GCSE, A-Level or degree who are studying web design/development as part of the course.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught subjects of web design and web development to individuals at all academic levels as well as in industry, where I have delivered training for organisations including the NHS, Dundee Council and Halesowen College. Web design and development topics I have taught include:

* Web accessibility
* UX design
* Web security
* Front end web development - HTML5, CSS and Javascript
* Server side web development - PHP, MySQL and MVC
* Content management systems - including Wordpress
* SEO and social media for websites

I have also written a series of tutorial articles and cover features on the above topics for Web Designer Magazine, which can be found in shops such as WH Smith.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one tuition is the most effects for individuals with a specific need for training or tuition relating to programming because this allows sessions to be tailored specific to the learner in terms of the types of example problem to solve. This type of session would be delivered using the pair programming approach, where an example application is developed and adapted in collaboration with the learner.

My tuition can also be provided online - making use of Skype to provide direction.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Jake

I am an experienced photographer/videographer with many years of practice, I have a degree from Nottingham Trent University along with a video production company called Capture the Guru. Over the years I have worked in many different areas of both disciplines, finding myself specialising in architectural photography and music based videography.

I have in-depth knowledge in both practical skills and in the psychology of interpreting images and video, this allows me to not only teach you how to take and record quality material, along with how to work with it in post-production but to also consider how your work will be received.

However most importantly I want to take the interest that you have currently and give you the skills to truly produce material to be proud of, along with further instilling the enjoyment that is so important.

Teaching Experience:

I have not had much formal teaching experience as of yet, however I have taught a fair few people tricks in order for them to produce better snaps. Whilst I was studying me and a group of friends on the course banded together to help teach each other the parts we struggled with, I was always very apt with the technical side of photography and would teach the others how to used different forms of cameras and how to emulate specific styles that we were learning about.

Now however since working within video my colleague and me are constantly teaching each other new tricks whilst filming and editing.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is simple, to discover the level of enjoyment and enhance it. We can all become frustrated when the need to produce our ideas is limited by our current knowledge and when it comes to mediums like photography and videography a practical hands-on lesson far surpasses any online tutorial.

I am a very hand-on and location based teacher, Instead of giving you material to read I want to show you techniques, allow you to feel what it is like to be searching for an image you may not fully understand.

Personal Description:
I am a native Arabic speaker from Jordan. I have a PhD in Arabic Language and Literature and three years of experience in teaching Arabic as an additional language. I teach Modern Standard Arabic, old Classical Arabic ( Quranic Arabic) and spoken Arabic ( Levantine and Gulf).

Teaching Experience:

Three years of experience in teaching Arabic as an additional language

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher of Arabic language, I believed once in the 'myth' which says Arabic is a difficult language to learn. However, after more than two years of experience in teaching, I am confident that Arabic is easier than many languages including English. This belief has rooted through experience in teaching Arabic to students from beginners to advanced levels. Arabic is a very mathematical language. It depends on logic in all its aspects. It has rigid writing and pronunciation systems.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated English and Media academic with a Masters Degree in English, a First Class Degree in Scriptwriting for Film and Television and a Masters Degree in Directing Digital Film & TV.

I also have a PAL certification for classroom based tutoring.

I can provide teaching in Film Studies, English (inc. GCSE, A'Level, English as a Foreign Language, Degree level and Basic and Reading and Writing skills), Communication Studies and Screenwriting.

I currently offer private tutoring, both online and in person to teenagers, college students, university students and adult learners, offering a patient and caring approach. My teaching and therefore my hourly rate is affordable as I do it for the love of the work.

As well as undertaking work for with the BBC (something the media / film students tend to be interested in) I have also worked on a number of feature films / short films, had articles published and I have won awards for my writing). Therefore, I have a considerable amount of practical and academic knowledge across the media industry, suitable for English, Film and Media Disciplines.

I really care about my students and helping them achieve their goals. I truly believe that anyone can do it if someone believes in their potential. Whether they are just starting out or if they are a mature learner. Everyone deserves to be the best they can be.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 9 years I have been providing a broad range of academic training courses and tutoring to students and adult learners in GCSE / A'level English, Digital Media and Scriptwriting, but I have also offered more basic reading / writing skills.

I currently work with a number of private students from GCSE level through to A' level and beyond, helping them achieve their goals and supporting them with the challenges that inevitably come with preparing and passing exams.

I have delivered classes to university level students, college students, school students and business owners across a wide range of disciplines.

I am always happy to provide references for my work too, so you can be assured of a great level of service.

Due to my work, I have a fully enhanced CRB check which is available for viewing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning through association with what you know, is the easiest way to tutor people of all ages. It generally helps students to identify more easily the knowledge they need to pass their exams.

Being very patient, I find it's better to adapt my tutoring to the individual, rather than apply a 'one size fits all'. This means a better success rate as different students have different strengths.

I usually like to assess learners at the beginning of meeting them / talking to them and then devise a target plan to help them achieve learning goals.

ONLINE TRAINING

At the moment, I offer English GCSE / A'Level, Media, Film Studies, English as a Foreign Language and bespoke University tutoring support, as well as reading and writing skills. I provide full support and 'real time' lessons with a clear structure. Each element is specific to the student being taught.

So if you are looking for a friendly tutor who will encourage you to speak better English or you want to tackle an essay or prepare for an exam, or you want to brush up on the basics, I can help.

I can deliver online tutoring at a time to suit you on an ad-hoc or more regular basis.

Whether you want help with GCSEs, A levels, basic skills, you would like help with media / communication studies or you would like to get to grips with some basic English, I can provide a positive and friendly approach that will actually help you and a very thorough teaching method.

FILM STUDIES

I cover the following areas:

Exploring Film
Exploring Film outside Hollywood
Exploring and creating
The 'language' of film
The organisations which produce, distribute and exhibit films and

I am particularly good with shy students or those who lack confidence.
