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:
I am 35 years old and a highly qualified and experienced teacher and tutor of eleven years standing. I have been fortunate enough to receive an excellent education myself and through this I have been able to achieve the highest level grades throughout my own studies and a 'fully outstanding' award for my professional 'Teacher training'. I have worked as a psychologist/life coach and I write professionally also. I offer a quality service to quality students.

Teaching Experience:

As a teacher I have mainly taught at, "St Edward's College". This has been listed as one of the, "...best of the best" schools in the country and has received two consecutive 'fully outstanding' reports from Ofsted. I am committed and passionate as regards my subjects and with enabling my students to both enjoy their studies and realise their potential. I am dynamic in my teaching which ensures the students are engaged and my subject knowledge provides me with an assuredness in the quality of my teaching. My tuition students have attained places to read and study at The University of Nottingham; Oxford Brookes University and one of my students recently obtained a degree with honours from The University of Leeds. I am proud of the results my students have achieved as they have done very well in their examinations and some have even been able to obtain full marks in their examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I am fully aware of how important communication with parents and students is in order to ensure all our mutual goals are met and the students potential is fully for-filled. I have references from students, employers and parents available upon request and I have an up to date criminal records bureau check. I only perform lessons that are 1 and a half hours long (90 minutes) for 45 pounds or 2 hours long for 60 pounds. Regular sessions tend to work best and this has proven to be mutually rewarding for both myself and my students. If a student unavoidably must miss a lesson, I will aim to arrange an alternative mutually agreeable time. If we cannot find a time, I will have to charge the fee for the lesson. I always do my best to accommodate both students and parents. This helps enable my students and myself to achieve our aims i.e. entrance to their chosen University and the highest grades. Thanks. Joseph.

Personal Description:
I discovered my passion for teaching in 2006 during my experience as a teacher of Communication in the Mesoamericana University of Guatemala. During the yers in Guatemala I also taught Italian for adults for the local Italian Institue of Culture.
I left the country for safety reasons and wanted to continue the experience in Europe too.
I also wanted to learn English, that is why I have been living in London in the last 4 years.
I got a certificate as an Italian teacher for adults and I started to experience the pleasure of teaching both Italian and Spanish mainly as a private tutor for both online and face to face tuition. I also had a brief experience in a Londoner secondary school. I now tutor a few students and love this job, but I need to increase my teaching hours in order to get better money.
I feel as passionate about languages as about education and helping students to increase their interest in both a different language and culture is for me one of the most rewarding experiences of this profession.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient tutor.
One of my strengths is to adapt my tuition style according to my pupils and I believe that the best way to engage students is through active involvement. My diverse background helps me to be innovative and creative in my classes where I incorporate the skills gained in other areas of my career, such as communication theory, theatre, cinema and radio.

Personal Description:
Hi my name is Lina

I am available to help students learn different languages and improve their oral and written skills. I can help younger students prepare for their GCSE exams and I can also teach intensive 1-2-1 business level courses. I am available to teach face to face or online via Skype.

I am very passionate about travelling and find that my love for languages enables me to get the most out of my trips. I see languages as a key to unlocking different cultures and experiences that I may have may otherwise have missed out on.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students aged between 12 and 80 from over 50 countries around the world. I have taught many different levels of German from ABC courses for students who could not read or write, up to advanced business courses.

As part of one of my roles I was involved with the German Immigration Ministry, which included providing courses and exams to people who wanted to live in Germany.

I can prepare students to take Test DaF,DSH and Zertifikat Deutsch exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been teaching languages for over 16 years now and I have lived and breathed the German culture for many years. This allows me to give students a real insight into the way of German life. I can use many real world examples in the way I deliver the course material, to help students better understand what is being taught to them.

Personal Description:
I am Science Teacher in the Bromley area, who is currently teaching GCSE Double Award Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics units 1 and 2) in a local school. I also teach KS3 for all three subjects and so am able to provide any extra tuition for any of these subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I completed a PGCE in secondary eduction, graduating in 2010. During my training year I worked in two differing schools in Liverpool - one was a really tough, inner-city school with lots of behavioural problems, and the other a Catholic school which offered a mix of academic course and vocational qualifications.

Upon graduating I worked in an all-girls school in Liverpool. The school has an outstanding academic reputation in the area - scoring 99% 5 A*-C including English and Maths. I completed part of my NQT induction year at the school.

Following on from a successful start, I decided to move down south to get a different perspective of teaching in a different area. I started at a local school in Bromley and have since completed my PGCE course and have gained considerable experience in the classroom. I have also recently been observed by Ofsted who were impressed with my teaching style.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a range of different ways to help tutor a pupil. I understand that people learn in different ways, and so in the first few sessions will try and discover which way the student learns best and so will then adapt my practice to suit them. In the class room I use models, demonstrations, set my own challenging questions, use examination style questions (and break them up into manageable sized chunks).

Personal Description:
I am an employee of the United Nations and a graduate from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). I am available for tutoring on Politics and Sociology at any level, and on History, Philosophy and Economics at GCSE level. I am happy to provide help on exam revision, essay writing, entrance exam preparation, university applications and general reading and writing skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years' experience of tutoring social science subjects to students from a range of different nationalities and backgrounds. I have a strong track record of improving grade scores and passing exams first time. I have proof-read essays for a large number of students who have all subsequently scored top marks for spelling and grammar. I have also formerly proof-read documents in a professional setting for businesses from the Czech Republic and Greece.

Tutoring Approach:

I am flexible in my approach and am happy to adapt to any student's needs. I look to work on all aspects of a student's approach, including revision technique, writing style and exam preparation. My preference is for committed students who will practice and implement what is learnt outside of lessons. I have typically set students exercises for completion before the next lesson in addition to revision work for practise essay questions. The more committed a student is to our classes, the more they will gain from them.

Personal Description:
I am a First Class Degree Law student and have obtain a distinction on the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. I am now a practicing trainee solicitor in a large, reputable law firm.

I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and committed individual who strives to obtain only the best academically. I am passionate to help tutees do exactly the same.

Specifically with regards to tutoring within the field of law, I am able to offer one-to-one tuition in the following areas of law: English Legal System, Contract Law, Criminal Law, Tort Law, EU Law, Property Law, Banking Law, Employment Law, Family Law and Equity and Trusts.

I can assist with any of the following:
- Exam technique and preparation;
- Coursework;
- Study skills; and
- General understanding.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously tutored several tutees via this website, family members and family friends. All of my tutees have suceeded in their studies following tuition sessions and have obtained the grades they have wanted to achieve.

I provide face-to-face tuition sessions and also tuition over Skype. I am extremely flexible and am willing to accommodate the tutee in any way that I can.

Tutoring Approach:

To learn, a pupil must find the teacher interesting and enthusiastic. I approach teaching enthusiastically not just because I want to engage the student but because I enjoy helping others.

I do not believe in negative comments and giving up and I strongly maintain that positive encouragement, practice and persistence gains excellent results. Constructive advice and feedback is always provided.

If a student could not grasp a concept giving up would not be an option, both tutor and tutee would have to work together to find a learning style to help that student.

Although friendly and positive, a serious attitude towards learning is always taken for the full amount of time spent with that tutee.

I am prepared to put in as much effort to assist the tutee as possible and am only prepared to help them achieve their full potential.

Personal Description:
I'm a passionate, caring and enthusiastic teacher possessing the key ability to translate the discipline of Mathematics in a straightforward, relevant and accessible way. My works greatest joy is supporting students academically, socially and emotionally and watching them flourish into capable, independent mathematicians and students. I seek to create an environment that's engaging, stimulating and tailored to their specific needs in order to achieve this.

Teaching Experience:

Shortly after graduation I was offered the opportunity to become a part time lecturer at Solihull College. Soon thereafter I took on a permanent role in the Engineering department.

I have been teaching Engineering Mathematics Level 2-5 and age groups 16+ across a wide range of Engineering programmes spanning from Motor Vehicle to Aerospace. Some of these include:

Mathematics for Engineers,
Further Mathematics for Engineers,
Analytical Methods and
Further Analytical Methods.

I also lecture / teach in the following disciplines:

Functional Skills Maths E3 - L2,
GCSE Mathematics - Foundation and Higher
AS/A2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics

As far as private tutoring is concerned, I have been tutoring since April 2007. During this period, I have worked with over 100 students. The majority of these students have been tutored for GCSE, AS and A2 Mathematics.

In addition to this, I have also tutored for Entrance Exams for 11+ Maths, and Oxbridge/Warwick (STEP).
Since last year I have also been tutoring for IGCSE and IB Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I always seek to combine a solid grounding of the subject matter at hand with the needs and skill set of the individual. My philosophy is to take this combination and convert it into a student whose mindset becomes independent and robust so they can think for themselves using real world examples wherever possible for relevance. The starting point is always topics students are comfortable with moving gradually towards more complex areas as their mindset and confidence builds.

For me this approach is key and once they're grounded in the basics and well equipped with a relevant skill set, only then do we move on to applying that to an exam format and past papers. This serves to further purify, solidify and perfect the students' understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as mathematical definitions, analysis and the direct link between Algebra and Geometry. Where appropriate, I set and mark work, giving students' detailed feedback to further facilitate their improvement.

Ultimately, I love Mathematics and to infect others with this love is the most rewarding part of my job.

Personal Description:
Highly qualified and experienced international language teacher who specialises in teaching Spanish, Ukrainian, Russian and English as Foreign/Additional Languages. I am approachable and confident to teach languages from early years to higher university levels. I build positive teaching-learning relationships with students from different age groups, diverse social backgrounds and varied degrees of linguistic ability. I tutor in Lowestoft area as well as provide online e-learning experiences. I am available to tutor weekdays, Saturdays and evenings throughout holidays as well as term time.

Teaching Experience:

Over 23 years of experience. I have worked in both mainstream and private schools tutoring one-to-one, small groups and full classes with students of different abilities in both secondary and primary school levels. I have also taught SEN students in groups and individually. I provided lessons of English and Spanish as Foreign Languages to organizations in South America and Ukraine.

SPANISH

I offer training in Spanish at different linguistic levels - from basic to most complicated grammar issues (university level) with plenty of conversational practice. Spanish is my natural language. I worked as a "Spanish into English" translator/interpreter for the Dep. of Science in South America and as a teacher in Extremadura in Spain. My knowledge of Spanish-Speaking culture will enrich our lessons in a way that you will be able to learn the most important shades of meanings as well as Spanish colloquial expressions. This would allow you to feel confident in Castellano and to avoid unconfortable situations while travelling to Spanish speaking countries.

SEN, SYNTHETIC PHONICS for READING and WRITING; ENGLISH as a FOREIGN LANGUAGE, RUSSIAN AND UKRAINIAN (native ability)

I also provide tuition in areas such as: Reading and Writing in English -Summer Holiday Practice, synthetic phonics (children 4+); Grammar, Conversation, Exam Preparation in English, Russian and Ukrainian as Foreign Languages.
I am an official Synthetic Phonics Trainer for Ukraine. I have run numerous language clubs in England and coordinated my own language school in Ukraine.

Tutoring Approach:

I adopt a flexible approach to teaching, depending on what the student hopes to achieve. I have always got on well with my students and try to make my lessons fun, friendly and as motivating as possible, involving techniques such as interactive communicative situations, games, quizzes, songs, reading and writing comprehensions, cultural enrichment, essay writing skills, etc. Before the course, I assess the students' needs and their levels; explain the scheme of work and discuss with parents their child's progress. Group lessons can be agreed at a cheaper price.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and approachable teacher, currently in my second year of primary teaching, wanting to help any children who need some extra support, or are in need of more of a challenge.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a primary school teacher in the Nottinghamshire area. As I completed a four year bachelor of education degree, as well as the 2 years I have spent teaching, I have a thorough understanding of the National curriculum and age-related expectations. At the moment I am a full time teacher in year five, but I have also had experience in other year groups. I have also completed tutoring, within the school in which I teach, for reading comprehension. I would say that my strongest area is maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important to work out and assess where your child is at, and to check for any misconceptions, before developing and extending their understanding. In recent tutoring experience, I found boosting the child's confidence is
key to them progressing and feeling more comfortable with the subject.

Personal Description:
Hello there! I am Inés and I am from Spain. I have a degree in Translation and Interpreting Spanish-English-German (Madrid) and I am currently working as a Foreign Language Assistant (Spanish) at a very well known school within the UK. I have grown up in a multilingual environment (a part of my family is English and also, I lived in the UK for some years when I was a kid) and I have learned other foreign languages like French, German and Portuguese with the pass of time.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching private lessons 5 years ago, to neighbours, students at highschool who were younger than me and relatives.Since then, I have taught whenever I have been able to. During this time I had the opportunity of teaching Spanish, English, French and also other school subjects like History or Ancient Greek -necessary to take Spanish A-Levels.

Tutoring Approach:

For me, teaching is one of the most gratifying and enriching jobs there is, and specially if I am speaking about teaching Spanish. Contributing to the spreading of this language, whether it is at a beginners level or at an advanced level, whether it is for personal or professional reasons, is a fantastic experience.
I believe that like anyother language, Spanish cannot be studied alone. It needs a big dose of culture. Therefore, I offer the possibility of introducing/showing my students different aspects of the Spanish culture, creating a harmonious combination of language and culture having improvement as a constant element. As a teacher, I consider myself commited, responsible and hard-working, key elements for this job.
