Personal Description:
I have been told that I am a passionate, encouraging and dedicated tutor.

"Edward helped both me and my daughter with Maths tuition this year, for GCSE higher level and IGCSE respectively. We both made excellent progress and grew in confidence with help and encouragement from Ed, who combines an easygoing manner with an extremely serious and professional approach to teaching his subject. Ed is able to get right to the heart of a student's confusion very quickly and to give clear and well-illustrated explanations. I couldn't recommend Ed more highly."

Personal Description:
I choose to study mathematics for my degree as an interests. (so is my interest for physics) After the studies, it is come to me I should share my enthusiasm to younger students as well. Private tutoring as a part time job is a good point to start, with the help from me, I hope students to find the subjects more interesting rather than a dull subject to part in the school.

Teaching Experience:

Qualification-wise, I've got A for Mathematics & Physics at A-Level, obtained MA Mathematics (Hons) from Edinburgh University and MSc Mathematics from King's College London.
Experience-wise, I've become a private tutor for three years now and I had taught over 200 students. The subject include mathematics, physics and mandarin. Range from KS3 to degree level.
Dec 2012 - Feb 2013: Teaching Assistant at Lister Community School
Oct 2014 - Jun 2015: Maths & Mandarin Tutor at Greig City Academy

Tutoring Approach:

For the mathematics and physics teaching, I believe the conceptional understanding is much more important than memorize the method. Once the concept has been absorbed, the method of solving problem become rather trivial. Of course to maximize the efficiency of learning, an interests in the subject is essential. Hence I'd like to increase the students engagement by given information on more practical use of the knowledge or more news on advanced study.

Note: for people asking for university level maths. I will ask lecture notes or at least syllabus. Though undergraduate maths is taught at similar level, there are variation for each modules due to each lecturers' style. Just list a module name hardly tells what topics are required to study. Lecture notes are used to see the way that particular lecture taught, otherwise give me a syllabus I shall use my own lecture notes.

Personal Description:
As a motivated, organized and dynamic individual, I feel I can bring so much to the teaching profession. From a very young age I had an interest in computers and Teaching, and a wonder of how they worked. These fascinations lead me to pursue a bachelor's degree in computing, and then I continue to excel in Technology and did my Masters in Information Technology. Then along with my teaching job, I feel that I had developed deep interest in Web Technologies so I did my masters in Computer Applications.
I first realized I would like to become a teacher at secondary school so I continued my career as a teacher in ICT for about 4 years in various schools and really enjoyed working with all key stages. I have got versatile experience of teaching Physics and basic sciences to GCSE students as well. I had a good rapport with my Head Teachers and this has influenced me greatly to pursue a career in teaching.
I believe in teaching with live resources , practical activities , demonstrations , full theory support and assessing my student's honestly so see how my teaching is going on and do I need to make any changes in session plans to make it more innovative. I am a person full of enthusiasm and knowledge.
I believe teaching is not simply only to get students a job -- although this is part of the material equation -- it is about providing students with a set of conceptual tools that can be, and ultimately will be, used in a variety of disparate contexts. It is in other words, about inspiring students to think -- in- and out-side of the classroom.

Teaching Experience:

I got 4 years of Overseas Teaching experience as an ICT Teacher . I have taught Computer Science , Web Technologies and Information Technology in various Secondary schools. I am well versed in English and have done my Bachelors in First Division and my Double Post Graduation in Computer Applications and Information Technology with distinction.
I have achieved Level 3 in Preparing to Teach in Life Long Learning sector (PTLLS) from Filton College , Bristol. I have achieved certification in Web Professionals and achieved ISTQB Certified Tester status as well .
I have more than 5 years of working experience in Retail and Customer services which has helped me to strengthen my communication skills, problem solving skills , experience of working in a fast paced atmosphere with a knowledge of operations , cash handling , audit operations , participating in various discussions in the company at partner level.
My Recent Tutoring students includes students from Winterbourne Academy , City of Bristol College , Filton college and Bradley Stoke Community School and mentoring overseas software testing projects online.

Tutoring Approach:

I am able to motivate my students by using creative and inspirational methods of teaching.
I have great sense of humour which reduces barriers and lightens the atmosphere especially during heavy periods. An ability to make your students laugh will carry you far and gain you more respect. It also increases our confidence level and ease off any nerves in students and as a result students feel more engaged in the lessons and I get a good response which motivates me more to explore more with my learner.

I always prefer to do detail research for my students , their preferred learning styles and any barriers if they have.
I know my students can be visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learners. I have a dept at creating presentation styles for all three. My body language is my main communicator and I keep it positive at all times.
I know that the aggression, negative attitudes and behaviours that i see in some of your students have a root cause. I know that they are really scared young people who have come through some bad experiences in life. This keeps me calm and in control of me, of them and the situation.
I know that no one is more important in the world than anyone else. I know that everyone has a place in the world. I respect my peers and my students. Having that respect for others gets you the respect back from others.
I know that you can change a young person's life by helping them to realise their potential, helping them to grow, helping them to find their talents, skills and abilities.
I am passionate about what I do. Teaching young people is my true vocation in life. My purpose in life is to make a difference.

Personal Description:
I am a professional educator with a wealth of experience in a wide variety of teaching environments. I've taught in schools (Primary and Secondary) around Hampshire covering almost all the curriculum, been a private tutor for a wealthy family in the Middle East, and helped local students improve their GCSE and A-Level grades.

I trained in Physics and have a Masters degree in Physics with Space Science and Technology from the university of Leicester. I now teach Physics and Mathematics at a variety of levels in Gosport and offer local tuition.

Presently, my circumstances make it difficult to offer tuition, and can only accommodate students coming to my home in Gosport.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2009 and took up a post in a 11-18 state comprehensive. Here I taught Science at Key Stage 3 and specialised in Physics at Key Stages 4 and 5. After I moved to the south coast I spent 6 months supplying at various schools in Hampshire. This opened my eyes to the full range of skills a good educator should have. I honestly feel my teaching skills were vastly enriched by teaching in a variety of environments in many different subjects.
From March 2011 I was hired by a prestigious tutoring agency based in Oxford to work for a wealthy client and their two sons in the Middle East. This consisted of after-school tutoring 5 evenings a week in a variety of subjects.
Now back in the UK I teach in an Engineering Academy run to train Network Rail Apprentices. I tutor in the evenings from 11+ entrance exam students to those sitting their A2 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I truly believe that every child is born a genius, with the ability to grasp everything that is put in front of them. From that point on, society, parents, and peers all put barriers in our minds. It is my goal to see that these barriers are destroyed. Learning is done by the student rather than teaching done by the teacher. A teacher can teach a dog to whistle, it doesn't meant the dog will learn.

A tutor is merely a resource. Just like a book, or an expensive laptop. Achieving the optimal results requires a holistic approach to education. I tend to work heavily with educational psychology theory and pinpoint the exact pieces of the puzzle far beneath the surface that allow the bigger picture to be seen. I teach my tutees to look at examinations in a way they may have never seen them before, allowing them to reduce the anxiety and be truly confident in themselves.

The content of subject matter often comes second to learning technique. How people learn differs between individuals. There can never be one set way to solve a problem so I offer various routes and pin point techniques that can be beneficial.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Colchester most of my life, and had an uncle who was a teacher; this inspiring me to become involved in education, after having worked in other occupations.
My interests include drama, photography, salsa dancing, classic cars and travel. I am also actively involved in a number of societies, including being a committee member.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2003.
I am experienced in 1 to 1 tuition, and have also worked as a part time college lecturer. I currently work as a
training manager (in work based learning in transport), as well as a tutor.
I've also been involved in verifying learning material, and have worked with LAC/SEN students.
I aspire to eventually become a qualified (QTS) teacher.
I am a member of the Institute for Learning, and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to input their own ideas and opinions into tutorials, as I feel this can help their learning process, over merely having a tutor "talking", and them "listening".
Basically, my approach to tutoring is like a "two way street", with good communication and interaction between
both parties, which in turn can make the learning experience more fulfilling for the student.
I set homework for students, (where applicable).

Personal Description:
LEARNING ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE
Experienced graduate native tutor teaches Italian one to one and groups.

Specialized in Skype lessons.
Conversation classes in Stotfold (SG5 4) on Mondays at 8:30 pm.
Survival Italian courses for tourist purposes.
GCSE and A-level teaching. University tutoring.

My name is Tiziana, I am a native Italian speaker and I was born and grow up in Grosseto (south of Tuscany). I am married to a university lecturer, with whom I have 2 children. I`ve been living in England for 5 years and now I live in Stotfold (Hitchin).
I studied at the University of Sienna (Italy) where I obtained my Master Degree in Law and qualifications to teach Italian to foreigners.
​In Italy I worked as a solicitor/barrister at first and then for ten years as Chief Police Officer.
Over the last 10 years, I have developed a passion for teaching Italian to foreigners. I already ran Italian language classes while in my native country, and when I came to England, I started to give Italian lessons on a one to one basis then and I run Italian courses in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.
I give Italian lessons via Skype to some distant students and I really enjoy this way of teaching.
I am also running a fruitful Italian conversation class for intermediate every Monday evening in Stotfold (Hitchin).
I've got my own website where you find a lot of language resources, grammar exercises, illustrated vocabulary, videos to watch, a blog filled of Italian culture, history and traditions and a lot more.
If you would like to read my Curriculum Vitae and a list of references in United Kingdom, please feel free to ask.

THE PROPER ITALIAN - MY ITALIAN BACKGROUND​

In Italy we say "the pure Italian is the Tuscan Italian in a Roman mouth".
Italy is composed by a lot of regions and every region speaks a different Italian, with a different accent. North and South Italy speak a very strong dialect. Open or closed pronunciation of the vowels "O" and "E" and doubling consonants "R" and "T" are the most crucial issues.
Italian tutor's accent reflects on the students speaking. I can recognize previews teacher origin of my students only listening to them speaking. I spend a lot of time with my students adjusting their pronunciation.
I grew up in the south of Tuscany and I didn't have to make any effort to get rid of my accent just because I have never had one. Pay attention when you choose your Italian tutor abroad. If you want to learn a proper Italian go with one coming from Tuscany or Rome.

MY STUDENTS BUNCH

I have to deal with many different students every week. Most of my students are coming once a week. Some of them come twice.​ Almost all my students are adult learners.
Half of my students are beginners and they literally start with no Italian at all. The other half have an intermediate level and they want to improve their skills in speaking and grammar.
In my experience, after 1 year of lessons (coming once per week) a beginner advance to the intermediate level and is able to speak and understand most common Italian conversations. ​
My Italian lessons are tailored to students ability, skills and purpose.
I teach all levels of Italian and my teaching experience is quite varied and rich.
I have mature students registered for Master Degrees in Italy, businessmen interested in improving their business Italian, teenagers who are doing A-levels in Italian, children from families of Italian origin who don`t speak Italian at home and tourist who want to learn a Survival Italian to hold some common conversations during their holidays in Italy.

YOUR LESSON IS TAILORED ON YOU
Every Italian lesson is customized on student progress, purpose and needs. I offer a high level of flexibility in terms of timing as ​I am available to give out lessons every day from 8 am to 11 pm weekends included. If you can't have your lesson in the same day every week I can arrange your lessons time by time at your convenience.
Students receive all the stuff they need to study Italian (grammar, exercises, practice) in advance and there is a hard job behind that. If you study Italian with me you don't spend a penny to buy books, audio-videos or other stuff.

Teaching Experience:

I offer different kind of services:

- Italian "one to one" tuition for beginners, intermediate and advance levels
- Survival Italian courses for tourists
- Italian conversation class for intermediate level every Monday at 8:30 pm in Stotfold (hitchin)
- Italian lessons via Skype for distant students
- Italian courses for schools, companies, organizations, pr and press offices
- GCSE and A-level teaching
- University tutoring

I am successfully running an Italian conversation class for intermediate every Monday night 8:30 - 9:30 pm in stotfold (hitchin) for a very affordable price ( 5 per class).

I offer a first free meeting to all the students, before starting any lesson, in order to assess their level of proficiency as a speaker of italian and understand their purposes in attending an italian course.

Tutoring Approach:

ITALIAN TUITION ONE-TO-ONE

I teach Italian by developing written materials according to an individual learner`s needs.
I use materials of different types in order to make each lesson interesting and beneficial, including videos from Italian websites, audio tracks, dictations and games.
Each lesson is usually divided into two sections: the first one is dedicated to study some new grammar and the rest of the lesson is focused on speaking, listening and comprehension exercises to help the student`s proficiency improving day by day.
An important component of my lesson is the "free conversation", where the students tells me what they have done in the last few days. Very useful are also my "driven conversations", based on newspapers articles or other writings, on different topics.
This way my students have the opportunity to learn about Italian culture, politics, food, traditions, history etc.
I always give all my students homework to be done independently.

LESSONS PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS

I charge 18 per 1 hour lesson or 25 per 90 minutes lesson at my house.
I offer discounts for families and groups.
I prefer to be paid monthly in advance but if you struggle to pay monthly I can accept payment lesson by lesson.
If you can't attend a class, please advice 24 hours in advance and I will offer you to re-arrange your lesson for another day.
If you miss the lesson and you haven't canceled it in advance, you will be asked to pay for the missed lesson.
You can pay my lessons cash, via cheque, pay-pal or bank transfer.​ ​If you need a receipt for your payment, feel free to ask.
For lessons at your house I will ask you a petrol refund.

​CONVERSATION CLASS

An "Italian conversation class" is a valuable opportunity for Italian students to practice their spoken Italian within an informal, relaxing environment, in front of a cup of tea.
Each conversation class is organized with students who possess the same level of Italian, so that no student would feel embarrassed and the conversation can be useful to all.
The purpose of the conversation classes is to connect people who are studying or who would like to begin the study of Italian and want to practice and improve their skills acquired so far.
Each class is developed around a specific subject, easy to be addressed within a conversation: events, personal experiences, or topics, such as sports, cinema, history, hobbies, celebrations, holiday, etc..
We start from an Italian newspaper article or we comment texts about Italian history, art, traditions, culture, society and even food receipts. We watch Italian videos, we prepare together some Italian recipes and we play together some Italian table games which help everyone to practice Italian speaking. Sometimes we practice grammar trough some "grammar games" which turn the Conversation Class into a shared grammar lesson. I moderate the discussions and assures that every student takes part in the talking.
Conversation class takes place every Monday at 8:30 pm and it lasts for 1 hour.
The class is open to all. Most of the people coming to the class are my one-to-one students but some of them attend only the conversation class. You are free to attend the class whenever you want and you will be asked to pay 5,00 per class.

SURVIVAL ITALIAN COURSES FOR TOURISTS

Are you worried about your language skill during your planned holiday in Italy and you are thinking to learn the most common Italian phrases in order to express yourself and understand most important conversations? ​
​Unfortunately in Italy not so many people speak English and everything you will come across is written in Italian.
We have a different shopping and public service timing, different public transport rules, different emergency and hospital services and also different habits in hotels and restaurants, which can cause you some distress if you pump into a urgent situation and you are not confident with it.
​I offer some "SURVIVAL ITALIAN COURSES" for tourists.
They are specific courses, designed for touristic purpose. In a few weeks lessons you will be learning about dining out, shopping, renting a car, manage with trips and tickets without be fussed about the nightmare of the Italian grammar.
They are the only courses I set up completely in English, in order to speed up your Italian learning.
​These mini-courses are designed specifically for people who are planning a short trip to Italy and just need to learn some basic survival phrases in the minimum possible time.
2 different survival courses are available for you.
- 20 lessons survival course for 300
- 10 lessons survival course for 150
You can choose your timing lessons, having lesson once a week, twice a week or 3 times per week. Every lesson lasts 1 hour. I apply interesting discounts if you book one of the "Survival Italian Courses for tourist" together with your friend and special packet is available for you and your family!

ITALIAN LESSONS VIA SKYPE

Have you ever tried the enjoyable experience to have your lessons from home?​
​Maybe you would like to learn a survival Italian in order to hold some common conversation in your next planned holiday in Italy. Maybe you are able to understand some Italian but you don't feel confident in speaking and you would need to have some conversation classes with a native, experienced teacher. ​Maybe you work with Italian companies and you need to improve your business Italian.
​What ever is your purpose for learning Italian, you can have your lesson comfortably from home, saving you money for petrol and time driving.
​​Where ever you live, doesn't matter how far from me, you can have your lessons via Skype.
I have some distant students having lessons via Skype and they find this way of learning easy, cheap and comfortable, avoiding the stress of traveling and any petrol expenses.
You only need to have a computer, headphone and microphone and you are ready to start.
I offer a first free"Skype meeting" to the students, before starting lessons, in order to assess their level of proficiency as a speaker of Italian and understand their purposes in attending an Italian course.
I will prepare your lesson in advance (tailored on your purposes, needs and skills) and I will send you the lesson via email before the arranged lesson in order to allow you to print off all the stuff.
During the lesson you will follow my writing seeing me on your computer and listening to my voice. So, you will write grammar exercises, you will read texts and you will practice your speaking with conversation exercises exactly like in a normal face-to-face lesson. I often share my computer screen with you in order to watch some videos together and listen to some audio tracks.
In other words, Italian lessons via Skype are exactly the same lessons I have with students coming to my house.
My students really enjoy this way of learning and I am very pleased to teach Italian this way.

Personal Description:
I am an English as a Foreign Language teacher of Italian origins. I work in a University based study centre that prepares overseas students for U.K. Universities, teaching them General English. I have 2 years + experience in teaching English to children, adults and teenagers, and I also give private Tuitions in Italian.
I dedicate the rest of my time to writing poetry (my second Italian collection of poems has been recently published), performance art and the organisation of cultural events.
I am an enthusiastic person, reliable and trustworthy. I am very creative and good at budging time.

Teaching Experience:

At the moment I am working as an English Tutor in a school. I have experience in the sector acquired both by paid work and volunteering here in the U.K>
I started to give one to one lessons in 2002 when I enrolled University as a form to support part of my studies.
In Madrid, from October 2006 to June 2008 I taught English as a Foreign Language to children of different ages (6-8 and 11-12) in three Primary Schools. I also run arts and crafts workshop for kids aged 3-5. I taught at English Summer Camps in Spain for the summers of 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Here in London I have been working as a Teaching Assistant at Holland Park pre-prep school (Oct.2008 to June 2009) and as a playworker for Special needs children with the charity Kids (Saturdays and half term)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring aims to build confidence in the learners and work with them, rather than lecturing to them. I generally tend to show students the steps and procedures that will lead them to make their own discoveries independently, so that they will be able to study autonomously in the future. As I learnt from my Celta course I plan lessons in advance, but I adjust to meet special learning needs and the the pace of work of students as I become aware of them.
I strongly believe that a tutor should relate to students as an equal, not someone superior.
I tend to show appreciation and praise whenever the student is doing well in order to encourage but also to prepare tasks that are challenging for the learner.
To finish, I would add that my naturally enthusiastic personality helps me to maintain a positive attitude throughout the process of teaching which is most beneficial for the student.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced sociology tutor and proofreader having taught in the sociology department at the University of Warwick for four years and also for a short while in the School of Languages and Social Sciences at the University of Aston. (I can also tutor at this level in modern history, politics and international relations). I have BA in sociology and politics from Oxford Brookes University and an MSc in social science research methods from Sussex. I have also recently and successfully completed my doctorate at the University of Warwick. In addition to my university work, I have tutored for a private agency (where I held an advanced CRB certificate) at A-level in sociology, politics and modern history. I have a good record of helping A-level students to achieve the grades they require for a place in higher education and I have continued this success whilst tutoring independently in the north east where I have now lived for for the last year.

At A-level I am happy to help with essay writing and subject research and prep for exams. Please contact me early in your studies though (early in the academic year, as early intervention has greater rewards...).For undergraduates, I can offer advice on essay and dissertation construction and also on writing style and format. Additionally, I can help to formulate ideas for research projects and can proof read long or short drafts.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at A-level and taught at undergraduate level for 7 years.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is simple: I help to give students the skills and knowledge they require to achieve their goals in education.

Personal Description:
I have been involved in martial arts for over 14 years now and enjoy the process of teaching others how to better protect themselves. In my current main job, I teach and train members of staff and provide workforce development for over 1000 staff members on a variety of topics. My second job is as a Kickboxing and Self Defence Instructor at the University of Sunderland, where I have worked for over 7 years.

My peers and tutors have told me that my mannerisms and personality lend itself well to instructing and teaching. I am patient, understanding and explain subjects in an accessible way. I genuinely get enjoyment out of teaching, especially that moment where a student suddenly 'gets it' and then starts to take leaps and bounds in the training.

I sincerely look forward to hearing from you and training you or your class to better protect themselves.

Weekday's would have to be organised at least 2 weeks in advance so I can secure a leave day to accommodate this training.

Teaching Experience:

- 1st Dan Black belt for ASMAA Freestyle
- 1st Dan Black belt for Kickboxing
- Level 1 Coaching qualification in Kickboxing and Self Defence
- Phase 3 in Jeet Kune Do, Kali and Silat
- Over 14 years in martial arts, 6 years teaching
- Trained Gold, Silver and Bronze winning Kickboxers at a national and local level
- Part of ASMAA (All-Styles Martial Arts Association)

Tutoring Approach:

A personalised, considerate and professional approach. I would speak to you to find out what needs that you have, for example if you encounter situations at work or in your personal life, and then train you in a bespoke, specific way to deal with those issues. If there are no specific issues you are looking to cover, then a general overview would be covered that is useful for all walks of life.

Every step of the way I will explain concepts, reinforce them with real-life examples and ensure that, in your mind, you have confidence in the techniques I will be teaching. You will then have the opportunity to train these techniques at your own pace, with detailed feedback and giving you opportunities to improve and praising good form.

All techniques can be 'pressure tested' to ensure that they will work under stress or imminent attack.

For those students that are younger, I have delivered sessions that gently guide students into the world of martial arts and about respect for one another. Fitness, games and good solid technique would be the backbone of any sessions delivered.

Subjects
  • Self Defense
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (40 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (40 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (40 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (40 p.h.)
  • Further/Higher (university) (40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Naomi, I am a recent graduate from the University of a central Lancashire. I graduated with a 2:2 in Children Schools and Families. I have relevant and recent experience with children and young people. I have volunteered in a number of schools as a teaching assistant am up to date with the national curriculum. I am a good listener so can listen to and understand each child's learning style. I can adapt what I know to help your child to achieve the best they possibly can. My aim is to give children confidence in the subjects they are unsure about. Once a child has the confidence they have the ability to reach any target set for them.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teaching assistant in a number of schools bothe primary and high schools. I have also worked in a special needs school where I learnt a lot about the importance of communication.
As mentioned I have a recent and relevant understanding of the national curriculum so know the subjects and areas children need to strive in.
Although I am not a qualified teacher I am aware of different teaching styles and the importance of giving children confidence to learn.

Tutoring Approach:

1:1 work with children is often needed for children to gain confidence because in a classroom full of 20-30 children can sometimes be daunting and children sometimes lack confidence in asking questions. Therefore not fully understanding a subject. Which is why I feel it is important to guide children into their learning style and help them with topics they are studying in the classroom. They can then take their knowledge into the classroom and apply it to the relevant work.

Subjects
  • Special Needs
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)
  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)

  • Reading & Writing skills
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)
