Personal Description:
I have 5 years experience working as a Spanish teacher in secondary schools in London teaching years 7 to 13, and my exam classes have a very good track record. I have worked with both Edexcel and AQA in this time, so I know what it takes to get the best grades, especially at GCSE. I am also very happy to work with younger children, helping them to feel more confident with mastering the basics in a language. If your child needs extra support or practice with any particular area, just let me know.

I have made several trips to South America, and have lived in Chile and Spain. I am also a fan of Spanish and Latin American films and literature, so if you would like to incorporate some more cultural aspects into lessons just let me know, as this can be very motivating.

Teaching Experience:

I am PGCE qualified, CRB checked, and have been working as a Spanish teacher for the last 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I get on well with children and young people, and would be happy to focus on any area with which they needed extra help. Sessions would be individually tailored and at the student's own pace. If there are any specific texts, exam boards or textbooks with which the pupil is working I would request some advance warning of this.

With a degree in Fine Arts, she has an appreciation of film, photography and fine art in a practical, theoretical aesthetic way as well as technical.

Kezia has won numerous awards in recent years. She was the only director from the region presented in the Saatchi and Saatchi Young Directors Showcase in 2005. At the inaugural advertising award show, The Kodak Gongs, held in Sydney in 2005, Kezia was given the Young Director of the Year award.

Her directorial successes have also been awarded at music video and short film festivals. Kezia won the award for Best Commercial Spot with Love Story at the L.A. Shorts Fest in 2006 - this Hollywood event is the largest short film festival in the world.

In her commercial work Kezia has produced work for, and in, various cities and territories including the UK, New York, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Kezia has worked alongside some of New Zealand's most prestigious bands, making videos, including Goodshirt and Pluto. At the Juice Music Video Awards, in 2006, Kezia's music video Hands for Sarah Brown won Video of the Year.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring in a friendly and informative way. I can adapt the sessions to suit the individual, whether it is about learning in-design or whether it is seeing you through a photographic or film/video project or designing your showreel etc. I have a depth of knowledge and industry experience to draw on. I can help you extend your knowledge or develop the knowledge you already have. Please contact me to discuss your individual needs.

Personal Description:
I am a Music graduate hoping be a primary or secondary school teacher. Teaching is a passion of mine and and hope to gain and learn as much experience as possible within this sector. I am friendly, with excellent communication skills. When working with pupils, i always want them to succeed and get the grades they need through motivation, encouragement and making them feel they are able to ask questions at any point. The most rewarding part of tutoring is knowing that pupils are achieving good grades and they feel confident enough in school to do the tasks in class.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant and help pupils with their school work and homework. I have supported pupils in many different subjects from Maths, English, Science to Art and Drama. I have developed different ways of teaching through one to one lessons which i currently do at the school with a pupil and have been doing this since February 2012. I have worked previously in a Primary School as a voluntary teaching assistant.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel its important to look at what pupils are currently working on in school which can also include homework they are struggling with and help them with that. I create a friendly environment where they are comfortable enough to ask questions and able to tell me when they still don't understand.

  • Geography

Personal Description:
I am a happy person because I love my job. I am really interested in teaching languages, using various approaches and methods as well as learning them, in particular self-learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a Language Centre for over ten years, teaching English and Russian languages at all levels. I am experienced in working with a wide range of programmes such as survival language, exam preparation, etc. and gave a great amount of individually tailored lessons as well.
I also designed and successfully taught a course on English-Russian Translation for students from British universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in order to be effective the learning process should be interesting and engaging, if possible even entertaining, but never tedious. So I try to bring in variety into my lessons and build language learning around the topics which appeal to my student.
I love working with technology and teaching in Skype using various Internet tools and resources. However, I prefer not to overwhelm my students with them and keep the focus on the language learning.

Personal Description:
Hola!

My name is Ximena and I am a Spanish tutor from South America based in Reigate

I deliver friendly and informal lessons aimed towards those looking to learn some basic conversational Spanish for holidays. I cover all the basics in Writing, Listening, Reading and Speaking.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching students:

Children`s Spanish: Children's Spanish classes place emphasis on fun and learning - I use a variety of interactive resources such as wall charts, games, colouring sheets, memory cards. For younger children, resources are colourful, easy to use and exploratory. For older children, a beginners children's text book is used and supplemented with lots of interactive worksheets and games.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a balance of engaging students with content relevant to what they need to learn while at the same time ensuring they enjoy lessons. Learning languages can be a challenge and it's important that students can see the progress they're making every week and being able to utilise Spanish in situations that are relevant to them.

Personal Description:
I'm a 24 Canadian teacher, now in my second year teaching in London. In addition to teaching, I take part in screenwriting, filmmaking, and online blogging.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently in my second year teaching in England. I have full grasp of the new English GCSE curriculum for both Language and Literature. I teach Years 7-11, to students of all abilities (including EAL and Gifted & Talented students). I am also a GCSE Media Studied teacher, with additional knowledge in Film Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I bring to every tutoring session the same levels of passion and enthusiasm that I exhibit on a daily basis in my classroom. I believe in hands-on learning, with understanding and appreciation of the material studied taking prominence to worrying about a grade or a level. I strongly believe that any student can excel, no matter their background or language, and that with passion and handwork, the desired grade is more than possible.

Personal Description:
I'm currently a student studying Economics at the University of Birmingham, averaging a first level qualification. I am interested in sharing some of the things I have learnt over my years in education with others, which is why I'm keen to tutor. I have previously mentored students throughout secondary school and really enjoyed it. Apart from university my other interests include; playing sport with the University Korfball team, coaching the Economics netball team, wining and dining as I'm a huge fan of food and I also play in the University Symphony orchestra. This summer I was an intern for PwC in their audit team.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously mentored students through their GCSEs and Alevels at secondary school and really enjoyed it. I am the coach of a netball team so this also gives me skills which help to make me a better tutor such as patience, organisation and effective communication skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring is the responsibility of both the tutor and the tutee. I would like to plan sessions which are stimulating, engaging and involve ideas bouncing between the two of us, whether that is through debate, discussions or question and answer sessions. I am also open minded so would be prepared to experiment a lot with teaching style. I would be happy to take suggestions about how you'd like me to tutor you so we can establish an approach that works for both parties.
