Personal Description:
I am an experienced teacher of languages in Essex, I enjoy sharing my passion for languages with my pupils.

Teaching Experience:

I work in a secondary school in Essex. I teach French and Spanish to KS3 and KS4. During my free time I offer private tuition in French and Spanish but I also offer Arabic tuition. I have experience teaching both top sets and bottom sets so whatever your target I will make sure that you achieve not only your target but that you can exceed it as we'll.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very creative, I endeavour to make my lessons enjoyable and I use a lot interactive games with my students. A language lesson for me has to be engaging rather than just teacher led.

Personal Description:
I have taught to all levels from reception class at primary school through to secondary school, sixth form college and university level.
Being mixed British and French-Swiss, I am able to offer authentic French whilst still appreciating the difficulties from an English speaker's point of view. I am also qualified to teach Spanish to all levels and have years of experience in teaching the language.
I have a friendly approach and my lessons are very well organised with a sense of purpose. They are also individually tailored to meet the student's specific needs. I have worked as a GCSE examiner on numerous occasions and have coached and taught AS/A level groups.
Should you be interested in either extra exam tuition, starting a new language or brushing up on previous knowledge, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you are willing to put in the effort, I can guarantee results from my end!

Personal Description:
I earned a Bachelor's degree in Spanish Linguistics and Literature from the University of Salamanca (Spain) and have been teaching my native language to students of all ages ever since. I have experience with group lessons as well as individual tutoring/private lessons.

I am available to tutor online and depending on the distance, at the tutee's house. (Should you prefer lessons at your house, please enquire about prices and availability.)

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years of experience teaching and designing Spanish courses for individuals and learning institutions. I have created courses for different industries, from medical to travel, legal, software, and others.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to use materials taken from real-life situations and different media (websites, music, etc.) to make the lessons fun and lively. Courses are completely customized to suit your personal needs, hobbies and interest topics. I am available to my students by email for questions that may arise in between lessons.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Zoe. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford, studying English Language and Literature at St Peter's College.

I'm an experienced tutor and I believe that with a good, solid education everyone's opportunities in life become better. I am patient and very committed to getting the best from my students.

Prior to university I attended Streatham and Clapham High School (8-16), and Wallington County Grammar School (16-18).

I completed A-Levels in English, Medieval History, French, Classical Civilisation and Philosophy AS Level.

My main interest is English Literature but I am ever-keen to use my French, and am also passionate about History, both ancient and modern. At GCSE level I opted to study primarily languages, namely French, German, Latin and Ancient Greek, and I am so grateful for the skills and linguistic understanding these diverse subjects have given me.

I am a keen reader, theatre-goer and traveller; I also enjoy sports, particularly running, netball and cycling. I live in southwest London and am happy to travel.

Teaching Experience:

I have plenty of experience tutoring people of all ages, and am currently specialising in English, French and History lessons and entrance/university interview preparation lessons.

I have worked as a temporary assistant at Faulkner House School in South Kensington during my Easter holiday from university in 2010 (children aged 3-11).

At school I worked on a mentor programme helping students from younger years with their French speaking practice and also with extra English.

I have a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification.

I worked with a local Brownie pack from 2006-8 which involved working with children aged 7-10, running a variety of crafts activities and games.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in the ability of each person to achieve academic success through hard work, and also understand the need for patience and perseverance to succeed.

Having benefited from one-on-one tutoring during my own education for those subjects I struggled with at school, I have first hand experience of the importance of a good tutor and just how much difference one can make.

I have a real passion for the subjects I studied at university and at A-Level and I communicate that, whilst simultaneously providing relevant and informed tuition sessions.

Personal Description:
I am Brazilian and I've been living in the UK for about 18 years.
I have a passion for languages and can speak Italian, French, English and Portuguese.
Although I come from Brazil many of my students want to go to Portugal and I am prepared to teach European Portuguese as well as Brazilian Portuguese.
I also work as an interpreter for the public sector and currently I am running an English course for international students at Emerson College.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching Portuguese for about 14 years in the UK. I've taught in different Adult Education Centres and now I have private groups and private students. I also have experience in Corporate teaching in the UK.
For more information about my teaching please look in

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is more focused in speaking. I do lots of exercises to make the student speak from lesson 1 and they do!
I use pictures, resources from the internet, white board and lots of repetition.
I have been doing it for many years and many of my students are fluent speakers.

Personal Description:
My career was spent in the computer industry and management consulting, mainly with Deloitte and Oracle.

Teaching Experience:

I specialise in 1-1 tutoring of Maths at GCSE and IGCSE Level. In the past year I have been giving 1-1 tuition to 15 students who attend schools in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge that use Edexcel and OCR Exam Boards. I have also given tuition to students who wish to refresh their "mental maths", gain a teaching qualification or gain entry to officer training in the Armed Services.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach depends partly on how near the Exam date is. If the date is some way away I will focus on teaching the topics the pupil identifies that they have difficulty with. In particular I go through what the pupil has been taught at school since my last tuition session to check that they understand it. As the exam date gets nearer I work through a checklist of every topic in the syllabus, and ensure I cover everything the pupil needs to understand to achieve their target Grade. It's also important for pupils to practise past papers so that they acquire exam technique as well as proficiency in the topics in the syllabus.

Subjects
  • Maths

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic native speaker Italian teacher qualified at the Italian Cultural Institute of London with a TIAFL (Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language) certificate. Furthermore, I have attained a Master's degree (Distinction) in Italian Literature at University of Bologna gaining an excellent command of the Italian language and a deep insight into the culture.

Teaching Experience:

During the intensive teacher training course TIAFL 'Teaching Italian as a Foreign language' at the Italian Cultural Institute in London I have taught to students of different levels including complete beginners and intermediate, planning innovative lessons and creating activities with authentic material.
I am currently working with one-to-one tuitions with a more tailored approach adapted to the student's needs and expectations.

Tutoring Approach:

I love involving students into the 'Italian world': natural and artistic heritage, social customs and peculiarities.
In my professional experience as a teacher I have developed a communicative approach able to show short-term improvements in the students' speaking ability and competence.
My lessons are student-centred enabling the tutee to effectively practise the language in an active way.
The interest is stimulated through innovative and engaging activities such as games adapted to language learning as well as audio, video and visual material.
The grammar is instructed through an inductive approach to make the student able to understand the concept within a specific context, and pronunciation is facilitated with a focus on individual phonemes, stress and intonation.
This active and engaging approach is the perfect way to stimulate the students' interest and motivation in learning a new language.

Personal Description:
A resident of Edinburgh for the past twelve years I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things myself. I am fairly well travelled, enjoy the arts and have a passion for working alongside others to help them achieve their goals.

I am a professional actor with degree level qualifications in both Philosophy (Dundee University) and Acting (Queen Margaret University College).

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with adults in improving spoken and written English for UK degree entry level. I have also worked with college and university students in the Middle East (UAE) to train science and drama education in both Arabic and English.

For several years I have visited schools in both the public and private sectors delivering reading, drama and science communication classes.

I have regularly taught 5-15 years drama in private classes and enjoy working with pre-drama school entrants of all ages in working on giving the best entrance audition possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I am confident at creating a structured approach that works with a pupil's own strengths and needs to provide a tailor-made package for learning.

Ideally I meet with each student to discuss their learning needs, current level and expected outcomes.

Although it is important to push the boundaries of learning, it should always be a workload that is both manageable and individually tailored.

People learn best when they are enjoying themselves, so I try my best to make learning fun and interactive.

Personal Description:
I am Lorenza, I am Italian, from Naples.
I have a Master degree in Law cum laude achieved in my country. After my degree I moved to the UK to become a lawyer. I have recently completed the GDL at BPP Law School in order to convert my Italian degree into UK degree. I am currently studying the LPC at BPP Law School.
I studied, among the subjects, Latin, Greek, History and Philosophy during my high school.
I put all my effort and dedication in every tasks in order to be able to reach the best outcome.
I love sports, such as basketball and squash and I am a keen supporter of my team SSC Napoli football club.
I love cooking and baking: my Tiramisł is the best!

Teaching Experience:

During my degree in law, I have given tuition to singol student and small groups of students at undergraduate level, at high school level and at primary school level.
I have almost 4 years of experience of one-to-one tuition. I offered private lessons for all law subject to undergraduate students, and lessons in Italian, History, Philosophy, Latin and Art to high and primary school students.
I am a very calm and patient person and I have a very good success rate with all of my students.
It is a big satisfaction for me when my students obtain brilliant results.

Tutoring Approach:

I use to tailor my approach to tutoring following students' needs. I schedule with my students the lessons' program according to their aim and target.
I try to optimise as much as possibile each lesson, making sure that my students are doing the appropriate progressions.
I believe that passion is the key of a good teacher and I always try to make the lessons as much enjoyable as possible because when the students enjoy their subject, they are more likely to experience success.
I am able to help my students to maximise their potential using targeted revision and exam techniques.
My aim is always to raise the achievements of my students beyond their own expectations.

Personal Description:
I am a First Class Psychology and Sociology graduate from the University of Cambridge (2012-2015).

Teaching Experience:

I undertook a 6 month teaching placement in Port Elizabeth, South Africa at a mixed secondary school in 2012. Here I taught students from ages 12-19 in both English Language & Literature, and Life Orientation.

Since leaving university I have run numerous study technique sessions with students of all ages. In addition, I regularly tutor various students at both A-Level and GCSE in a variety of essay based subjects.

I have also run workshops and seminars at secondary schools, colleges, and universities to teach students how to study more effectively through mastering their mindset.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in study skills and techniques after undergoing a dramatic transformation in how I approached studying myself during my third year of university. After two years of being a low-mid 2i student at Cambridge I changed my entire approach to study through developing a number of study tips/tricks/hacks rooted in the science of Positive Psychology.

Students who often need tutoring are not those lacking in intelligence. For many not reaching their true potential it is their mindset and approach to learning that lets them down.

This is where I come in- I share my story of how in my third year I actually started working fewer hours, stopped getting stressed out, and completely changed my relationship with learning and education.

My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge them to apply these techniques themselves.

Areas I specialise in include:
- Fostering Positive Study Habits
- Eliminating Distractions & Increasing Focus
- Stress Reduction & Redirection
- Mastering Time Management
- Conscious Note Taking
- Perfecting Exam Technique

Personal Description:
2008 National Teaching Award Winner (Southern Region.)
Volunteer linesman every Sunday - for my 3 sons' football teams.
Keen cyclist - I've cycled further than the distance around the equator as I commuted to and from school.
Animal lover - I enjoy jogging with Scout, my rescue dog.
Educational author - I wrote a maths assessment book that was sold in WHSmith.
Piano player - I accompany a large choir that performs in both the Guildhall and the Cathedral in Portsmouth.
Prioritiser - In 2010 I decided to reduce my hours so that I could spend more time with my wife!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a classroom teacher for 23 years in 3 different schools; I was head hunted for the last job and when I left it in November 2016, it was graded outstanding by OFSTED. I have predominantly worked in year 6 where I have helped to raise standards of attainment - I have been successful in accelerating progress for many pupils (particularly in maths) to double Government expectations.

I have spent most of my career as a maths manager in schools but I have also led English and science. I have been a key stage leader for over 10 years and have mentored trainee teachers who have gone on to have their own successful teaching careers.
Winning the 2008 Award for Best Primary School Teacher in the South was an amazing experience. The judges interviewed pupils, staff and parents - families who weren't able to attend the meeting were able to submit letters of support and the highlight of the whole process was getting to read these testimonials afterwards.

Tutoring Approach:

Every pupil is different: each pupil has their own particular knowledge of facts, procedures and concepts, but they are also unique in their attitude, experience, confidence and motivation. Finding a tutoring approach that best suits each child is very important and, where appropriate, I make use of the recent educational principles of 'Growth Mindset' which challenge the notion that some people are just born clever, and encourages pupils to value risk taking, criticism and effort.

Individual tuition allows time so rarely afforded in whole class lessons to track back and identify the misconceptions that can sometimes be the underlying cause of slow progress or issues with confidence. The focus of good teaching is about building all new learning onto secure foundations and making strong and varied connections between concepts.
