Personal Description:
I am a very enthousiastic person who loves to teach children. I am quite good with languages as I pick them up quite easily, but my aim is to teach English as a foreign language as I love to learn about other cultures in return. I am a hard working person who loves to share knowledge with others. I am very polite, well dressed, very approachable and kind.

Teaching Experience:

I am a newly qualified TEFL teacher (September 2009) I have helped out at High School in supporting a small group of students with English language and reading. I have also recently started to train for teaching Cantonese for young chlidren.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will vary depending on the level I am teaching, please e-mail me for more information.

Personal Description:
I have a life-long love of English in general and of Shakespeare in particular, and have always enjoyed communicating that enthusiasm to other people, helping them develop understanding, confidence, appreciation and love of language. I have an MA degree in English from Cambridge University and am an IGCSE examiner for the Cambridge International Examinations Board.

My early background in retail management and ten years at director level in international advertising combine to make me a particularly effective communicator.

As well as offering private tuition, I also run school drama workshops, direct plays, and work as a freelance writer/editor and voice-over. I have been involved in over fifty theatrical productions - acting or directing - as well as giving regular readings and public presentations.

Having lived and worked professionally for several years in France, I am fluent in French and can offer coaching in French literature and language.

"Simon is the complete professional, directing and managing large-scale productions, nurturing emerging talent, and running a very successful education programme, as well as being an inspirational teacher himself." (Arnold D. - former colleague)

Teaching Experience:

I was Head of English and Drama at an independent school for over twenty years, where I was regarded as a charismatic and inspirational teacher. I have many years' experience of Drama in general and Shakespeare in particular on and off stage (studying, teaching, acting and directing).

"Every pupil has selective memories of their teachers. Every past pupil I ever meet selects Simon as their most memorable teacher. They remember his effervescence in the classroom, his delight in their achievements and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Shakespeare." (Tim R. - colleague since 1987)

"Simon was simply a brilliant Head of Department, being that rare combination of high academic and able, articulate communicator. His subject knowledge is unmatched in all my teaching experience, especially of Shakespeare's works, and his inspired teaching produced enthusiastic, successful pupils during his twenty years." (Kay C. - colleague since 1998)

Tutoring Approach:

Need to gain more confidence with spoken or written language? Find Shakespeare hard to cope with? Wish to develop your creative writing ability? Need to practise interview technique and improve presentation skills?

I can help. I give coaching in drama, literary analysis and practical criticism, particularly of poetry, and I specialise in teaching Shakespeare. In addition, my earlier working background in marketing is particularly useful in helping students develop their interview technique and presentation skills.

If distance is a problem, I am happy to offer on-line tuition, such as via Skype.

"Simon is an inspirational teacher of English Language, Literature and of Drama. His ability to engage and motivate pupils is of the highest order as is his pursuit of excellence in all that he does both within the classroom situation and in workshops. All of this is well reflected in the results he has achieved in particular with potential scholarship candidates over his years in post." (Dr Gerry H. - I taught his son)

Hiya
My name is Kathryn and I'm currently studying Maths and Physics at Durham University. I am back in Guernsey over the holidays and am available to tutor various subjects at various levels.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously tutored Maths and Physics at AS/A2 level and GCSE level and I have tutored in preparation for 11+ exams. Whilst at Durham I have also attended workshops about tutoring skills held by TeachFirst.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to be friendly and open so that tutees feel comfortable to ask questions so that the tuition can help to tackle individual issues or difficulties. Also, since I have recently been completed school education I feel I have a good knowledge of current teaching and examination styles.

Personal Description:
At 19, I went to India instead of University and returned seven years later to join a four year degree in Drama and Education at The Central School of Speech and Drama. Life then filled with relationships, children and the usual complications of everyday life. There was a lull after twenty years when I returned to education at 40, realising there was no need to say, 'I wish I'd studied English'.
This late second flowering informed the transformation of my life since English and Drama studies enabled me to engage with complex literary, philosophical and socio-psychological theory to develop new ways of seeing, reading, interpreting and engaging with education. Continuing education enables me to make new sense of my rich, varied, exciting, dynamic, dramatic and privileged life.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years' experience of working full-time in a Further Education College. I have been responsible for extraordinary success rates for students of GCSE English, A Level English Language, English Literature and English Language and Literature combined. My particular strengths lie in finding ways to help adults who have not been successful students to find new ways of learning, understanding, applying theory to practice and to pass exams.
I am now a University Lecturer in English, Linguistics, Critical Theory, and Study Skills.

Students might attend for a short, sharp, intense period of tutoring whilst preparing a dissertation, undertaking research or responding to an assessed assignment or they might come weekly for on-going support with a subject or approach.

Tutoring Approach:

Every individual is different and thus my approach to tutoring is fluid. I work with students as a coach might work with an athlete: you will play to your strengths and develop strategies to address areas that could benefit from improvement, gradually improving your performance and results. We will find out just what makes you tick - what you like doing and what you don't like doing. We might consider how these preferences developed and what weaknesses your strengths conceal while we will work together to establish a reliable set of tools and techniques that you can build on and develop to support your own independent learning.
If you like cars we might change a tyre and consider how this exercise could help you remember the elements you must memorise for a linguistic analysis; if you like cooking we might create recipes for successful essays.
Tutoring is designed around you, using your strengths to support you as you improve other areas.

Personal Description:
My name is Clementine. I am a Third year English and Drama student a Royal Holloway University of London. I am bilingual in English and French.
I was born in Australia. My education was conducted between these two countries and as a result I have a double culture and a great interest in travel and literature. I have been trained under two different forms of education and have been taught efficient methods of work. My passion for trying out new experiences has led to me learning Spanish.
I have a great desire to communicate and interact with others- this is why I went in to tutoring. Using all my travel and personal experience has come in quite handy for inspiring students. This has helped me find interesting sources to make lessons more diversified and varied.
Hobbies include reading ( a lot !), theatre, fencing and debating in the Shakespeare Society.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for the past 2 and half years. I teach a wide range of students- from 4 to 13 years olds - in various subjects ranging from English and French Literature to Reading and Writing skills.
I follow my students for the quasi-totality of the past year, helping with English and Literature and boosting confidence skills in Oral presentation skills.
If needed I can produce references.

Tutoring Approach:

The way I conduct lessons is very simple- the session is planned out with the student to encourage them to an organised and eventually autonomous method. Any point that is not well assimilated is reepxlained and focused on. The lessons will follow different difficulty and themes - these can be arranged from a selection to tailor to each pupil's needs.
The focus in such lessons is to encourage the student's progression in anyway possible. Small tasks will be given now and then to check on the student's progression.

For students wishing to enlarge their knowledge of English Literature, emphasis is put on the latter (my specialisation being the 19th century rise of the novel) and contemporary culture. Themes range from different periods of English history to contemporary issues that rock today's world.

French lessons are held in a similar manner with the general aim of not only further knowledge but enjoyment in the pursuit of it.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Aberdeen and before that I got an MChem in Chemistry. I also have extensive knowledge of Biology until A Level and Physics until GCSE. I currently work for an educational publisher working on international education books up to A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor in the past and I have tutored primarily university students (4 years experience) but I do have experience in tutoring school level students in all three sciences. I have successfully tutored students to grade A standard at A Level and GCSE, with one student gaining an A*.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to work commitments I have been away from tutoring for a while (around 4 years) but it is something that I wish to get back into as I found it very rewarding. During a previous role I was selected as a mentor for new graduate trainees which ignited my desire to become a tutor again.

I tend to structure the sessions depending on the needs to the individual. I am happy to simply go over a topic or come up with sample tests - I am totally flexible and will aim to cater for your requirements.

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Ismael. I am from Spain and I speak and teach both Spanish and French.

Teaching is not just a pastime for me. I have studied languages and teaching for several years. I did a BA in Modern Foreign Languages at the University of Granada, Spain, and am now doing a secondary school PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) at the University of Portsmouth.

I have countless hours of teaching experience in the UK alone. I have worked in Portsmouth City Boys School (Portsmouth), Barnfield West Academy (Luton) and as a Spanish and French tutor for more than 20 different students.

Teaching Experience:

I teach Spanish and French to children and adults; all ages are welcome. Whether you are a beginner or advanced I am happy to work with you to improve your skills. In the past I have been teaching primary school students, GCSE students, A level students, university students, young professionals, mature professionals, pensioners and students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

Since I have worked in several schools, I am really used to the GCSE and A-level exams, their marking and the necessary preparation for them.

Tutoring Approach:

If you would like some references to help you take the big step of learning or improving your Spanish or French, I am more than happy to provide these, as I have had many UK based students already.

I try to keep my rate as affordable as possible and you will have a qualified tutor to help you with your learning from day 1. Feel free to contact me.

My charge is normally £15/h for one to one tutoring, and I also do group sessions on request.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Ismael

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student at UCL, currently studying towards a doctorate in Mathematics. I have a BSc Financial Mathematics (2:1) from University of Surrey and a MSc Mathematics (distinction) from University of Sussex.

Teaching Experience:

I undertook tutoring roles at University of Sussex and I am currently tutoring a degree student in London. In addition to this I used to run a homework club at my secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that understanding is key. I will use visual representation and justification as much as possible to provide a clear understanding of why and how we use techniques. I will tailor my tutoring to the specific needs of my tutee, and my time will include a FREE consultation to see where the student is at in there studies and attempt to highlight any areas where they may feel less comfortable. I hope to inspire my tutees to see maths as a useful tool as apposed to a chore.

Personal Description:
I am young professional who has recently returned from teaching English in South Korea and travelling around India and South East Asia. I work for a youth and community charity during the normal working week but would love to be able to keep up my teaching/tutoring to ensure I keep teaching as much as possible. I graduated in 2008 and hold a 2:1 degree from Edge Hill University in Childhood and Youth Studies.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience comes from my year spent abroad from November 2011 to November 2012. I worked full time teaching English as a foreign language. These classes varied in size and delivery method. I have experience working with children from the age of 4 right through to 18 and so understand the need for appropriate lessons and engagement techniques. During this year I taught classes of up to 12 and a variety of one-to-one classes, including telephone.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to break down a session so that the basic understanding of a subject is gleaned and my students are engaged with the topic.

For English as a Second Language classes I use lots of different methods including role plays, self learning, exercises, creative writing, and uses of media such as newspaper articles, music, and short clips from films/tv programmes. I always encourage as much speaking as possible. I am a creative person who incorporates this into my teaching style, allowing my students to enjoy their classes whilst meeting their learning objectives.

For GCSE I use guidance techniques which encourage the students to find the answers for themselves and help them to get into good habits where needed, including revision and essay writing skills.

For lower level English language and literature, I would use a mix of the above approaches and tailor my methods to fit with the student.

Personal Description:
Hi there! I am a gap year student planning on studying Biomedical Sciences at university in September 2014. I recently did my A-levels in Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Maths so I have a fresh knowledge and a good grasp of these subjects and would be happy to teach them to you.

Teaching Experience:

I've been a student tutor/helper last year in my school, helping out the teachers in mainly GCSE lessons aswell as A-Level lessons too. I've seen the many ways and methods that teachers use and therefore I think that makes me an ideal tutor.

I can both print out past papers and other relevant questions. I am also very happy to teach the theory to my students.

Personal Description:
Up until a few years ago I was an IT consultant working in The City and in Local Authorities. I had a working life change 8 years ago when I decided to do something more person based than desk based. I decided to use my Maths skills in schools and am currently working at a Tottenham Secondary as a Maths Academic Mentor.
I am very reliable, flexible to your childs learning style with an open mind and a non judgemental attitude.

Teaching Experience:

I spend my time at school in identifying students who are not working at their potential levels in Maths. I work across all the years, but specifically Year 11.
Once identified, I work with students in class, one to one, or with small groups and also afterschool. The majority of students in my group will be around the grade D/C borderline and my job is to take them that one step forwards to a secure grade C and then onwards to higher grades. However, I can help your child Improve at any level including A and A*.
This is what I do everyday and over the years I have built a very firm understanding of the aspects of Maths and the specific topics which cause students to lose marks.

Tutoring Approach:

It's important to build relations with students, to promote confidence and encourage independent learning.

This takes time, but once I identify the areas of difficulty for the student. I can target those areas (Fractions, Factorising, Percentages for example) and along with the major 12 topics of Maths which contain the 'must get' marks, I can help your child to make weekly progress by teaching, practising and then testing, to check their learning is progressing.
By the way - there are only about 4 months left untill the GCSE exams! Let's get learning.
