Personal Description:
I graduated from Coventry University and speak fluent Mandarin and English.

I studied broadcasting while I was in China and I worked as a presenter part-time for a radio station, as such My Chinese pronunciation is very clear and standard. I also studied some Japanese, which gave me a grasp of learning and developing a new language.

I got first class in the National Standard Chinese Level Qualification which shows I have near perfect pronunciation. Pronunciation is very important in Chinese and thus it is vital that the person who is teaching you has good pronunciation or you will pick up their mistakes too.

Teaching Experience:

When I was in China, I tutored some primary school aged students English to earn extra income. This has given me a base in teaching languages and so I have a good understanding of the differences in the languages such as grammar, word composition, and the etiquette.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very much tailored to the students needs.
For short-time learners, I will focus on basic common expressions, useful tourists sayings and culture differences. For long-time learners I will work on everything from grammar to hand writing to allow the student to communicate naturally in in Chinese.

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 come from Georgia, small and beautiful country in the Eastern Europe. I am 26 years old PhD candidate of Economics at the University of Leicester. My scope of interest is in the Behavioural Economics in general, my research concerns behavioural public finance. I hold my Master's degree in Economics from International School of Economics at Tbilisi State University (Georgia) and BA degree in Economics from Tbilisi State University (Georgia).

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is quite rich. I have been a teaching assistant at the Department of Economics of the University of Leicester since 2012. I am also an academic tutor at the Realising Opportunities Program, where I provide the guidance in research to the students of the program. Intermediate Microeconomics (EC2002) , the Economics of Development and Human Capital (EC2061) and the Principles of Finance (EC7084) are the courses I have taught so far at the University of Leicester. I was a module leader of EC7084 in 2013. I have face-to-face teaching experience also, during 2012-2013 I used to teach Microeconomics, Linear Algebra and Calculus at Leicester Tutorial. I used to be a teaching assistant and then lecturer of Macroeconomics in Georgia during 2011 and 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is oriented on a student's understanding. I use various methods of delivering the content and the respective intuition to a student. The methods include standard approaches (such as Teaching of the theory using appropriate books and notes, solving corresponding economic problems and providing real life applications of the theory. Teaching Mathematics using standard and appropriate textbooks), as well as individual, student fitted methods, such as eliciting the weaknesses of a student in understanding and filling the gaps in that direction to make sure that a student is equally proficient in theory, its applications and deriving the intuition.

Personal Description:
My Name is Billy and i am currently studying for a BA in Politics and East European Studies at University College London. I am fresh out of school and still have all the vital knowledge and exam technique that is still relevent to todays GCSE and A-levels. I am friendly and willing to work with all abilities, i am very much looking forward to helping others maximize their potential and improving their final grade. I gained 6 A stars and 6 A grades at GCSE, while gaining 2 A and 2 B grades at A level.

Teaching Experience:

I have so far helped family and friends, to a great deal of success. Before this summers exams, i helped a friend turn around his predicted D in economics to a very high B (78%). I was active in my school, tutoring struggling GCSE french and maths students who were at a loss or alienated from teachers. Often, getting help from someone who has recently gone through the same exam is the most valuable tool to any student. I found older students to be far more useful than teachers, older student experience is what i aim to provide.

Tutoring Approach:

With public exams, its not what you know but how you know it. I will aim to provide hands on exam technique with the use of real past questions and examples, starting from the basic right through to the most difficult and nuanced problems. In this way i aim to add one grade higher grade at the very least to a tutees prediction.

Personal Description:
I am 28 years old and graduated from Leeds University with a 2:1 degree in Spanish Langauge and Literature with an accredited distinction in speaking. I spent a year in Murcia working for the British Council teaching English to Spanish students aged from 11-17. I am passionate about learning and teaching Spanish and I am keen to use my knowledge and experience to enhance other's language skills. I will tailor my classes to work on any areas of weakness to get the most out of my students and rest assured you will receive a high quality yet fun language lesson.

Teaching Experience:

I taught English for a year while working for the British Council in Murcia, Spain. This required me to source interesting material for classes, plan and then teach classes of up to 30 students at a time. As the level of english was low in some years I had to direct the entire class in Spanish and work out the best ways to encourage the children to engage in the English Language.
In addition to the language assistant role I also privately tutored 6 students whilst living in Spain, the ages ranged from 11 to an adult learner and each session was tailored to suit their needs.
Whilst at University I completed a City and Guilds Professional Development Award in Education, this required working on a mentoring programme with a GCSE student and documenting their progess.
I am currently tutoring an A level student, 2 adult learners and a primary school beginner to enhance their speaking skills and I am very keen to work with other students at varying levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to tailor my lessons to suit the learner, I will complete an assessment prior to starting the tutoring and work together with the student to identify potential areas of improvement. I am keen to pass on my Spanish Language knowledge and work with students to improve grammatical accuracy. I take great care and attention in lessons plans and aim to create a fun and positive learning experience.

(I am the brunette in the picture)

Teaching Experience:

I have spent a year working in France as a teaching assistant with the British Council, where I taught English to students aged 15-22. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience working in a different culture, and to hone my presentation and organisational skills in a new and challenging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make learning fun, and to motivate students. I do this by setting interesting and diverse themes. I then divide individual classes into several activities to help keep students engaged. I regularly employ vocabulary games and set challenges, which are surprisingly effective way for students to learn and retain new words whilst making the lessons more enjoyable for the students!

Personal Description:
I am currently a 20 year old student studying Biomedical Science in Brighton. I'm passionate about science and am keen to pass on my knowledge of sciences to younger students in order for them to excel. I earned A's in all my sciences and maths at GCSE, and further qualifications at A Level.

Despite my details stating I can tutor up to 30 miles, I am only able to tutor in Tunbridge Wells, Hastings and Brighton.

Teaching Experience:

I've been able to help my younger siblings (1, 2 and 14 years younger) with their education, mainly with the sciences but other subjects too. My youngest brother is only 6 so it is important to adapt the way of teaching to fit his understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to vary the language you use depending on the level and age of the student you are working with. It is also very important not to discourage the student, as I feel this does not motivate them. It's important to make them feel good about what they're doing and this will encourage them to do well.
