Personal Description:
I am a TEFL teacher with a university degree (Music) and am from London. In my day job I work in a music company. I also teach English to foreign students in London, having worked for 2 years in British Council accredited language schools both in London and Portugal. I am a very friendly person and really enjoy teaching any age group.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught TEFL in language schools for two years, and have given private tuition in English and in Music for 9 years for all levels of learners. I have taught English at all levels from Beginner to Advanced, plus Business English and conversation classes. I have taught children as young as 6, all the way up to adults, and vary my teaching method according to the age group I am working with.

I have a Music degree and play and teach the Recorder, as well as giving lessons in music Theory. I used to work for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in the syllabus department, so have great insider knowledge about music exams. Additionally, I also used to mark Theory papers, so know what examiners are looking for.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to be as learner-centred as possible in my teaching. First I will conduct a needs analysis to assess a potential student's level and to identify the areas in which they would like to improve and their preferred learning methods. I encourage my students to actively participate in my lessons - it will not just be me talking. I aim to make lessons fun and engaging, as I believe that students learn more when they are interested in the material given.

I have 25 years' teaching experience (EFL/ESL, German and French) across all levels in colleges, local schools and as a private tutor.

Personal Description:
I am a History graduate from the University of Reading. I studied a wide range of topics and time periods during my degree, including late medieval and modern history. My specialist subject is the Tudors. I am very enthusiastic about my subject and teaching it to others.

Teaching Experience:

I have a successful track record of tutoring A level history.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that every student has a different approach to learning and I feel it is important to build this into a tutoring plan. I would start by identifying areas which the student needs help on and find out how they like to learn. I would then use this information, and a variety of teaching techniques, to ensure they reach their full potential. I believe learning should be fun and stimulating in order for students to progress.

Personal Description:
I am 28 years old and have just finished my fifth year of teaching. The first four of those years were in a successful Birmingham grammar school and have just completed my first year at one of Bath's top school. My own education was received at a mixed comprehensive school in Wiltshire, after which I attended the University of Birmingham where I studied mathematics. I have recently moved back to the area after eight years in Birmingham, living with my wife and 4 year old labrador. Amongst other interests, I am always looking to stretch myself and keep my interest in mathematics and education alive by reading literature (particularly by Marcus du Sautoy) and attending seminars by the Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and other such organisations linked with various universities.

Teaching Experience:

The majority of my teaching so far was at a school within the King Edward VI consortium in Birmingham, teaching boys in KS3 and KS4, the majority of whom have target grades of A/A*. Around 35% of my timetable has been teaching KS5, both years 12 and 13. I have taught C1-4, S1 and M1. I also have experience teaching a range of abilities, from SEN to A/A* students at two co-educational, OFSTED rated outstanding schools in Birmingham. I also have experience of tutoring trainee teachers preparing for their QTS tests and also those preparing for the King Edward's entrance exam. I have lead the development of ICT/Web based learning for my department and have mentored trainee teachers and NQTs. During my four years in Birmingham I was appointed Head of House and Head of Year 7. The house I took charge of had lost both the sporting and academic competitions every year for 10 years. After two years in charge, my house were the winners of the academic competion (consisting of 15 events) which I believe is testament to my ability for to motivate student. During my first year in Bath I have aided in the running of a successful department and have added experience of teaching further mathematics to year 13 students. The modules I taught were FP1 and S2 and I am due to teach M2 next year.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer that anyone, of any age and ability, can learn mathematics and learn it well. The key is finding a medium that relates to the student. I am willing to try a range of different teaching methods to ensure that all of my students understand the concepts and ideas that they are being taught. What I will always do is give a relavance and a meaning to whatever I am teaching. That way, I believe the learning is more engaging, more enjoyable and therefore will be of a higher quality. These beliefs, coupled with a laid back and likeable nature mean I create a positive relationship with all of my students, a relationship that is vital for good teaching.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Olivia. I have a first class degree in English from University College London (the best English department in the country) and a distinction-level masters in Literature from Birkbeck University. I went on to qualify in Law at City University. My degrees have given me experience of working at a high academic level, and I have adopted skills such as research, essay writing, essay formatting, effective revision and creative writing. I can show how simple it is to improve essays or homework by writing good introductions and conclusions, using literary critics and quotations, and analysing prose or poetry. UCL is the only university still providing one-on-one tuition, and after having had a personal tutor for three years as part of my degree, I can apply what they have taught me to my tutoring: looking at past essays to see how they can be improved, practising essay structure and enhancing the grammar and style of writing. Help with computer literacy such as writing in Word documents and blogging can also be provided.

I am also available to teach English as a foreign language, whether for school, exams or for personal improvement. Lessons could be planned and work on grammar and vocabulary or be structured to improve conversation, whatever is most needed. I have received pronunciation (a standard English accent) and can help to improve spoken English.

I can tutor up to degree level, and am happy to work with primary or secondary school pupils.

I can show a CRB check and references on request.

I can provide bumper revision sessions for new students up until exams. Please ask for more details.

Teaching Experience:

I have a range of experience teaching all age groups. I have been tutoring one-to-one for 3 years, teaching History and English language and literature. My students have found me committed and knowledgeable, and have often achieved their target grade or better. I have also helped students with university applications and personal statements. Last year, all of the students I assisted with their applications got the maximum of 5 university offers.

I have travealled to Cambodia to teach English language at a charity school in Phnom Penh, and my pupils there ranged from 4 years old to adults.

I have also worked four summers full-time in an English language school where I had full responsibility of children and teenagers. This year I was the director of the school's residential programme. As well as helping the students to improve their English, I coordinated their entire stay at the school. My employer praised me for often being chosen as 'best activity leader' on the students' feedback forms.

Last year I took part in an outreach programme at my university which involved teaching human rights and activism at a London sixth form college on behalf of Amnesty International. We had a series of lessons on different aspects of human rights abuse and campaigning which led up to a fundraiser raising money for Amnesty.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that a gradual build-up of confidence is integral to learning literacy skills. Learning skills on by one, such as editing or memorising, makes the tasks seem simple, yet leads up to a large and complex understanding of how to do well at English. Working at the student's own speed is important, in order that they grasp one aspect of writing before tackling another. My approach is to find the weak areas in a student's studying and work on these, without making any task seem too daunting. Exam technique and the knack of writing what an examiner is looking for are also main objectives.

I will help extensively with essays and coursework, providing comprehensive editing and advice. We can work together on your piece of work until it is of the highest standard possible.

Personal Description:
My name is Rocio and I am Spanish. I have a degree in Spanish Language and Culture (2012) and a Master in Education - Secondary School Teaching, Vocational Training and Language (2013) (QTS).

I also have a great knowledge of Latin, because it is a fundamental subject in the Spanish studio.

Teaching Experience:

At present, I am working as Spanish Language Assistant in two schools in London.

In addition, I have experience as Spanish tutor, teaching Spanish to a wide range of students from complete beginner to A level

I have worked in Languages Academies too with adults.

Tutoring Approach:

The lessons are focused in the student needs. So, for GCSE and A-levels, I use the respective school books as references and try to do excercise (I am working in the schools and I know them well).

My approach is dynamic and with a variety of resources to make the classes enjoyable and focused in your needs (oral skills, writting, listening, reading,...)

Personal Description:
Enthusiastic with a restless intelligence, thirsty for knowledge, always keen to discover more, I am continually fascinated by the interplay between culture and society. I have expert knowledge in English and American Literature, the history of cinema, and the development of western philosophy. I resigned from my post as head of department at a large comprehensive school so that I would have more time to write my book comparing the films of Preminger and Hitchcock. Freed from the administrative demands of a school, I have even more energy and creativity to devote to teaching, and will have a powerfully positive impact on whoever I tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have over thirty years' experience in a wide variety of educational contexts: at universities in Britain and abroad, in comprehensive schools, FE colleges, language schools and professional training. I have worked as a A Level examiner and moderator for over ten years, so understand exactly what students need to do to impress markers, and can advise on how to avoid mediocrity. I have been tutoring online for two years, and find that the level of concentration in a Skype session is usually higher than in person: the start is crisper, the learning more focused.

Tutoring Approach:

Fun, exciting, inspiring. I love the stimulating variety of one-to-one tuition. Over the years, I have adapted my plans, materials and methods to meet the specific needs, aims and expectations of an extremely wide variety of learners in terms of ability, personality and specialisation. At one end of the scale, I trained Swedish officers in media relations ahead of their deployment with the UN in Bosna, and spent eight weeks one-to-one with the head of personnel of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, improving his presentation skills. At the other end of the scale, I had notable success tutoring a teenager with emotional and behavioural difficulties who had been permanently excluded from school for violence, and was in local authority care. Working with him individually for three hours a day, concentrating on English, Maths and History, I had a very positive and potentially transformative impact. At every point in scale, I treat individuals with respect and dedication, determined to help them achieve their potential.
