Personal Description:
I am a French native from near Dijon in Burgundy, I am married to a Scott and we have two children. We live between Nottingham (UK) and Breil-sur Roya ( Alpes-Maritimes-France).I obtained a UK diploma to teach 16+ and adults and have been offering Business training then French language teaching for 20 years.

Teaching Experience:

Following my UK qualification I have been teaching French language at New College Nottingham (leading to O.C.N. & E.M.F.C. qualifications), People's College (leading to A.B.C. & O.C.N. qualification), Business French (at company places: Capital One, Imperial Tobacco, Boots, H.M. Inspector of Railways, Experian, Antalis, JetPress) & privately, especially for family relocation to France. I offer tuition for:
-French GCSE, A level, University degree & teacher training tutorials.
-French for leisure including buying a house in France and relocation to this country.
-French for immigration to Canada (TEFQ).
-Preparation to Business French qualifications (TEF-DELF-DALF) from Paris' Chamber of Commerce and to the International MBA School at Fontainebleau (ENSIAD) .
-Business French teaching prior to live and create a business in France.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe that Learning occurs favorably when self-actualisation is in place. Consequently my initial approach is motivating the Learner to create his/her Learning plan with well defined & achievable goals. Reward to gain confidence is also an essencial part of my Teaching & I always explain that an "error" is not a bad thing but an important Learning Tool.
Thanks to the Internet, I am able to accurately tailor my Tutoring to specific needs with daily up-dated information. This is one of my Unique Teaching Strength.
So, if you agree with me, you are Welcome!

Personal Description:
I'm a recent University of Glasgow Biochemistry and MSc International Project Management graduate. I'm a French national and have been living in the UK for 14 years. I'm a lovely person, very dynamic and love the one to one of tutoring. It makes me really happy to help someone achieve something they have worked so hard for.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately now for 7 years and have seen my students come to grow in confidence, in understanding and in knowledge of their chosen topics. I saw a girl who I tutored for 7 months go from getting an 'Unclassified grade' in her Biology AS Level to a B in her A2. I have never seen a student of mine's grades stay the same post-tutoring and I am very proud of that.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring different ways depending on who the student is. I ask them questions about themselves, hobbies, favourite subjects etc; and then using that to better understand how they learn, I talk to them about their private learning and revision and the method of approach to that and to exams. And then I teach them using the method appropriate to their style of learning.

Personal Description:
I am an MBBS doctor and working at St Georges Medical University of London. I am a trained PBL / CBL tutor and conduct tutorials at this university. I have completed my Diploma in Proofreading from NCC college of learning and work as a proofreader aswell.

I am interested in teaching profession. I have almost seven year experience of private and online tuitions of Biology, Combined Science to the students of GCSE and GCE and Anatomy to the students of MBBS.


I am very passionate about teaching. My teaching techniques differ with students. I know how to help weak students by giving small assessments. However, I don't believe in passive Learning, I want my students to be Active learner. So, my lesson is not based on just explaining topics but, I make sure that students understand that and do some work their-self.

I do different kind of topic based activities which enhance student's confidence and they can write their answers in more depth. Moreover, revision sessions are the prime importance of my lesson. I do believe, if students act according to my suggestions, the way I guide them, they will get high scores.

Teaching Experience:

I teach Anatomy to MBBS and Biomedical Science students at St. George's University of London since 2008.

I have taught Biology to GCSE and College level students in groups and individuals. From 1997-continue. I am aware of all exam board (AQA, OCR & EDEXCEL)

I do Problem and Case base learning at St Georges University of London (First, Second & T year)

I have taught Biology to AS/A2 level student in May-June 2009 - continue

I have taught Pediatrics, Obstetrics to a student of imperial college through face to face in 2009- continue.

I have good experience of teaching and supervising OSCE and have taught this to student of st Georges University of London in Feb-June 2009.

I have taught Pathology to a student of US Via correspondence in 2009.

I have interest & experience of teaching in the following areas;
GCSE, AS / A2 (GCE) levels, Physical Education (Academic side) & IB:
Biology
Combined Science
Applied Science

MBBS, Nursing, and Physiotherapy Degree Levels:
Medicine
Gynecology /Obstetrics
Pediatrics
Anatomy
Pathology
Physiology
Microbiology
Pharmacology
Forensics

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I elicit response that demonstrates understanding. During teaching I create the space for students to learn. For Instance, the art of my teaching is to ask students to demonstrate what they already know about the topic because it helps students in building their understanding based on their knowledge.

I can teach either face to face or through correspondence and I give students time to learn at their own pace. I always ensure that students have displayed their understandings to me. I am approachable and friendly so students can pay attention and feel they can ask question.


In addition, I also provide small assessments to assess the outcome of my teaching and student's understanding and their performance

I help my students in several forms. The most common of which are:
Preparing Notes and Handouts
Preparing Model Answers
Marking Work
Providing Mcqs for degree students
Helping in course work

Personal Description:
I am a final year medical student studying at Imperial College London. I achieved two academic distinctions(top 20%) in pre-clinical studies. I achieved grade A for all my A level subjects which are biology, chemistry, maths and AS psychology and physics, as well as A* for GCSE maths, science, Mandarin.

Teaching Experience:

I have 5-year tutoring experience and have tutored numerous students GCSE Maths with various exam boards with success.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one of the problems students in school encounter is that the teachers tend to explain each aspect of knowledge using their preferred ways, which may not necessarily suit the student, as different students have different ways of learning. Moreover, due to the large number of students per class, not enough time and patience is devoted to individual students. Most teachers are not able to of explore the student's capability and understanding, merely passively pass on the knowledge followed by inefficient results. As a consequence, students come home without having acquired a thorough understanding of the knowledge learnt in class, and end up having to rigidly memorise the 'boring' facts, which are usually quickly forgotten. As a result students begin to view learning as a laborious and boring process which have no applicable values in the future.

My approach: Learning can be FUN!! Independent thinking and confidence is the key.

My approach in tutoring follows two steps: 1. explore the student's own preference in the means of learning 2. incorporate these means of learning in the tutoring process, so that the student can achieve a thorough understanding of the subject in a most efficient way. I also like to focus on encouraging the development of the student's interest in the subject as well as the ability to confidently apply the knowledge , because I believe that disinterest in learning stems from an insufficient understanding and a feeling of lack of control over the knowledge. Therefore, the more you understand and have command over the subject, the more you'll love the subject! (the sense of achievement comes not only from high grades, but every step of learning along the way!!)

From my experience teaching various students of a range of levels, no matter how much they dislike the subject initially, every question they solve on their own, from first principle, helps changing the way they view the subject and gaining more confidence.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, relaxed and patient French-born tutor with nearly 20 years experience in teaching French as a second language.

I graduated as a teacher of French and English as a foreign language from International House, Green Park, London in 2000.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught pupils of all ages and levels during my career as a private tutor, and I provide tailored tuition for all purposes (help with school exams, conversational French etc).

My previous pupils included young children (beginner level), students (mainly GCSE and A Level French), adults (advanced French), as well as members of the United Nations (I was the appointed tutor for the Canadian branch of the UN based in Northwood for a few years).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring provides solid grounding work on the structure of the French language (grammar and spelling rules, for example) to form the basis of a strong grasp of the language which my students can build upon at every stage of their learning. I use a wide variety of methods, depending on the student's personal needs, to ensure that my students' weaknesses in any area of the language are properly addressed.

In my opinion, learning a language also needs to be a pleasant experience, therefore I always try my best to make my lessons fun, interesting and meaningful for the people I teach. Please do expect to get a bit of homework to complete between lessons; I don't "drown" my students in homework but it helps keeping the mind fresh on what has been worked on from lesson to lesson, and it is an important part in the process of learning to get the opportunity to keep track of where the students are at every stage of their learning.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

I have a very through understanding of accountancy and finance as I studied accounting, financial management ,Taxation , corporate reporting, business analysis and advanced taxation and audit in depth and covered all the complex issues.

Being as an Qualified Accountant I am totally aware of all updated stuff and accounting standard as this is part of my job.

Teaching Experience:

I got more than 8 years diversified teaching experience. My students range is vary from A level to both professional accountant of ACA, ACMA, ACCA , CAT, AAT , MBA, BBA as well academics students of Universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very different approach to teaching. I start teaching by judging the student ability to understand then teach according and give real life examples so that student will understand the issues quickly.I believe studying or understanding anything is very easy if you have a proper concept, therefore my focus is to give the student proper concept rather than just learning the things by heart.

I have a large range of teaching experience from the very young to adult. I enjoy teaching and considered to have a caring approach. I always make sure that learning takes place in a relaxed and studious environment. I have been told that my approach to teaching makes it enjoyable for my students as I am considered patient and very approachable.

I regularly give tuition to individuals and small groups of students at A Level and undergraduate level, and offer friendly, relaxed sessions, tailored exactly to what the pupil requires. I can offer general education advice and find that my pupils normally make speedy progress towards their study targets.

Personal Description:
I have a Bachelors degree (First Class Honours) in Medical Laboratory Technology and a Masters degree in Biomedical Science. I passed my senior secondary examination with five A's (English, Core Mathematics, Chemistry, Integrated Science and Social Studies) and three B's (Biology, Physics, Elective Mathematics). I am currently a PhD student at UWE Bristol. I am very hard-working and love to help my colleagues to succeed.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully taught Grade 2 (5-7) pupils for one year and I had very positive feedback from parents and my superiors. I also taught grades 5 and 6 pupils on one-to-one basis for more than a year with very good results.
I was a Peer Assisted Learning Leader for two years during which I assisted many secondary school (equivalent to GCSE and A Level) mates and juniors to develop a better approach to learning Maths, English, General Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I also have vast experience in one-to-one and group teaching at the university level.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that academic success is a combination of hard work, determination and development of a positive approach to learning. I also understand that we all have different academic needs so I spend time with the student to understand his/her weaknesses and strengths in order to develop a better teaching strategy for him/her. I combine both theoretical and practical approach to help my students appreciate the subject under discussion in order to succeed. In summary, my greatest reward is to see my students smile at the end of the day.

Personal Description:
I am a patient, sympathetic person who has a good sense of humour and enjoys meeting new people and getting to know them. I am passionate about making Mathematics enjoyable and understandable to young people. At present I am writing a novel for young teenagers which will challenge them to solve Mathematical problems and puzzles faced by the characters in the book. I'm hopeful that this will enthuse teenagers to see both the usefulness and beauty of Maths!
I am also passionate about ideas, beliefs and world views. I believe that it is important for people to think clearly about their world view and religion and/or philosophy of life. My aim is to help students gain factual knowledge, insight and empathy for people of different views from themselves but also to analyse both the basis and outcome.

Teaching Experience:

I became a qualified teacher with a B.Ed degree (Wales) in 1973 and taught full time in comprehensive schools in the UK and private schools in Lebanon, Cyprus and Egypt. Since returning to the UK I have taught part time, in schools, colleges of further education, and as a private tutor. I have taught Maths and R.S. to GCSE and Adult Numeracy Levels 1,2 and 3. I have also privately tutored A level Philosophy of Religion, Common Entrance and Quantative Reasoning (needed for entry to Medicine and Dentistry). The vast majority of my students have seen considerable progress and have gained the qualification required.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all, a student needs to gain confidence in him/herself. In Maths, this is gained through understanding and practice of the four rules of Maths. I have invented some board games to facilitate this, which have been thoroughly enjoyed, and have helped achieve the particular skills. I believe that Maths is about understanding and the application of logic, so I try to work from basic principles, rather than learning by rote.
As an R.S. tutor, I come from a position as a Christian, but aim to be objective and respectful to all faiths, or indeed to Atheism. I try to encourage students to critique the bases of particular ways of thinking, and to discuss and debate the points raised and the logical outcomes of particular beliefs.

Personal Description:
I am a tutor, proof-reader and copy-editor. I live in Newcastle and operate primarily in the North-East of England. However, I am perfectly happy to offer online tuition to anyone from other regions. Hence, I am prepared to take on students of any disposition. These can be the nervous and struggling type to the confident and capable type.

I am also happy to provide services throughout the entire year. These can be for winter and summer exams at GCSE, A level and even university level. I am also happy to offer tuition for university summer resit exams. On top of this, I offer a student proof-reading and copy-editing service. This service is available to anyone from any discipline. I am prepared to look over anyone's essays, dissertations or even PhD thesis. Note: all essays will be sent through a plagiarism software detector.

Outside of tutoring, my personal interests include: baking, creative writing, exercise (running and walking) and fiction (books, films and TV). Whenever I have time, I volunteer for a local Church and education.

Teaching Experience:

I have done classroom work at Gateshead Volunteering and Opportunities Centre and New College Durham. My duties involved: helping struggling students with classroom activities, helping them to express themselves and dealing with classroom behavioural issues. When working with students, I was noted for being approachable, compassionate, kind and patient.

On top of this, I have given guest lessons in Theology and Religious studies at Leeds Trinity University College, Jesmond Methodist Church, Gosforth High School and the Royal Grammar School. Since I started tutoring in the North East, I have tutored students from Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, Gosforth and Sunderland.
Both teachers and students have acknowledged my sessions as organised, stimulating and thorough.

References can be provided upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

Exactly how I conduct the lessons depends on the needs of the tutee. However, most tutees that I have met require help with additional knowledge and essay-writing. Thus, the approach that I usually take is as follows. I divide the lesson into two parts.

For the first half, I will have a discussion with the tutee on a particular topic. To help the tutee prepare for the discussion, I will give him / her: a detailed hand-out on the topic, some discussion questions and (if necessary) a brief background on the important key thinkers.

For the second half, I will teach the tutee essay-writing techniques. To help him / her with this exercise, I will teach the tutee an essay-writing formula. We will then apply this to past-paper questions. I will then look over these questions and return them with detailed feedback for how to improve. When necessary, I will provide pastoral support for exam stress.

Testimonies from previous tutees:

'Michael has been an incredibly reliable tutor, the lessons were very well planned and clearly thought out. It was very helpful that he was willing to cater to individual learning styles and willing to respond to feedback. I think that he would be most helpful for those doing GCSEs and A Levels. Overall, a positive experience, he put in maximum effort to the tutoring sessions'.

Hannah

'Michael is a dedicated, supportive and patient tutor, and took the time to create tutoring sessions which were designed with jack's learning style in mind. Michael gave excellent advice and guidance in his subject in preparation for both the AS RE exam, but also essay writing techniques for A2 as he knew this was an area which Jack needed help in developing his skills. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael's services to anyone. Thank you Michael for your help and support!'

Personal Description:
I am a 52-year-old mathematics graduate, living near Frodsham & working full-time in the chemical industry. I am married with two children in their twenties, both of whom have now left home. I find the tuition of maths a fresh & interesting challenge away from my usual work & I believe that, because of this, my enthusiasm for the subject is transmitted to my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring, one-to-one, for nine years & have also spent time working with small groups of students in a local comprehensive school in the run-up to national exams. I have worked with students of ages ranging from 10 years to 18 years & have also worked with adults on the mathematics units of their university degrees.

Tutoring Approach:

During the time I have been tutoring, I have received many cards & e-mails commenting, almost invariably, on my patience. I appreciate that meeting a tutor & starting to work one-to-one may be daunting for some students, especially if they are not confident with the subject. With this in mind, I try to encourage a relaxed informality from the outset, with occasional reminders, if necessary, of why I'm there! I realize that each student is an individual & try to deliver what they (& their parents) want from the sessions. I welcome parents' involvement & will address any particular concerns that they have.
