Personal Description:
I have been teaching 16-19 year olds and adult learners for over 13 years, mainly in London and more recently in N Ireland. I love teaching, enabling and helping others learn. I have vast amounts of experience working with young people and adults from a range of backgrounds and with a range of abilities. I understand the anxieties and challenges involved in being a learner; as well as teaching I too am a student, studying for a Degree in Counselling, sp realise how important it is to give learners support, clear guidance and help them create a structure for their learning. These are all the things I need to be able to continue studying. I am a friendly, approachable and organised person who can genuinely get along with, hopefully, just about anyone. I am passionate about music, cinema, exercise, my friends and family. I am comfortable giving and receiving constructive feedback and dealing with other's emotions and anxieties. After 13 years working as a tutor/trainer/teacher I still believe learning is a reciprocal process and remain enthused by it.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 13 years teaching experience.

- I am currently teaching A level/Access level Psychology, Counselling Qualifications at various levels & BTEC Health & Social Care at Northern Regional College.

- Prior to that, I was Head of Psychology (A level) and Lead Lecturer at Tower Hamlets College - responsible for all aspects of teaching and learning. I have taught a range of syllabi including AQA, OCR & WJEC. I have also taught on numerous C&G introduction to teacher training courses and on part-time PGCE programmes as well as doing a significant amount of one-to-one work as a mentor of trainee teachers. In addition, I was a Tutor Leader, with responsibility for a case load of vulnerable 'at risk' learners.
- Birkbeck, University of London. Here I was a Psychology lecturer for open access adult courses including Foundations of Modern Psychology and Psychological issues in Adolescence. For the later I was solely responsible for developing the syllabus and all resources as well as the delivery and assessment of written work. Again, I am on sabbatical from this post.

- Over the years I have undertaken private tutoring for a range of learners - young people and adults, for both Psychology & Teacher-Training.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching and tutoring style is entirely learner-focused. I aim to empower learners to identity their own strengths and areas for development, but supporting them in this process. I prepare materials that will meet their needs, with an eye always on the syllabus and the skills needed in order to pass any assessment (exams or coursework).

An effective, warm, co-operative and empathetic working relationship is what I seek to establish from the start of the tutoring process. I encourage learners to be reflective and to review/self-assess the work they do, alongside any tutor feedback. I build in regular formal and informal assessment for all tutoring, giving learners a clear sense of their journey, and their priorities at any given time during their studies. I ensure that work is marked to agreed deadlines and feedback is clear, constructive and developmental in nature. I am comfortable working in one-to-one settings, either face-to-face, over the phone or via an e-learning environment.

Personal Description:
3 years ago, UK postgraduate study enhanced my skills in both English and Chinese. I've been a professional translator and Mandarin teacher for years, so I'm very confident to be a private tutor and make sure you will reach your goal : )

I'm based in London and working as a translator/project manager. In my spare time (weekends/public holidays), I'm very glad to help those foreign friends with their Mandarin.

Please contact me if any needs/questions.

Teaching Experience:

In 2009, I taught English to preschool students in China. I learned a lot from it, how to communicate with my students, how to achieve their aims and how to deal with their difficulties.

In 2010, I taught two adult foreigners Mandarin Chinese at home via msn and emails. Although they were in the same age group, they had different needs, so I varied my teaching approach. One preferred to learn Chinese culture, so I taught him the history of Chinese festivals and general grammar; the other wanted to learn everyday expressions, so I taught him day-to-day language in terms of various circumstances, such as useful phrases in greetings, at the store, at the restaurant, at the airport and travelling etc.

Last year, I gave one-to-one Mandarin Chinese courses which are specially designed for the students particular needs.

We can have a discussion about your goal first, then we will arrange the time slot for your own course.

Please kindly note that my lessons are only available on weekends and the whole weekdays from 17th Dec. - 21st Dec. 2012

Let's speak Mandarin!!

Tutoring Approach:

First, I need to know my tutees' aims for learning Chinese (e.g. for travelling to China or for personal interests, etc.) so that I can design a way of studying for you that can make the process of learning more effective and interesting.

secondly, I will combine formal teaching content (pinyin, grammar, characters) with interesting informal teaching approaches (learning words and phrases from songs/movies or going to a Chinese restaurant to learn the names of dishes).

You will have fun learning Chinese!

Personal Description:
I've loved Mathematics from as long as I can remember and I enjoy teaching it and tutoring others. I have studied Maths up to PhD level and so am comfortable teaching all levels of Maths. I am friendly and spend time to help my tutees understand the fundamental concepts which they need for problem solving so that they can be successful in applying this knowledge in their exams.

Teaching Experience:

I was a teaching assistant at Strathclyde University for 4 years. In that time, I lectured Mathematics to first and second year University students, organised and supervised tutorial sessions, set and marked assignments/exams and tutored students on a one-to-one basis. I have also tutored my friend's kids who were home schooled and marked work which their parents didn't have the knowledge to mark.
Also have a PGDE(S) in Mathematics and currently teaching within the new curriculum

Tutoring Approach:

I find that the most effective way of mastering concepts/tricks is the hands-on approach. So I work with my tutees particularly in areas where they are weak until they have mastered the underlying concept/approach and are able to apply it on their own to similar problems. I am patient and work with you to help you use the knowledge you already have by approaching material from a different angle to what you've maybe been shown.

HAPPY TO OFFER A COMPLEMENTARY FIRST LESSON TO COUNTER COST OF GETTING ME DETAILS

Teaching Experience:

About to start teacher training in September 2013.

I teach a few students in London both French and Italian at a range of levels from beginner and A-Level standard to advanced adult learners. Students leave lessons strongly encouraged and enthusiastic requesting further lessons.

Chosen for the British Council's Comenius scheme, teaching English in a French school. I was also a culture reference point for the school's exchange program.

Accepted onto, even as the youngest teacher, and completed the TEFL program. I was then asked by my instructors to come and teach there after the course had finished.

Taught Italian at local school in Leicester.

Chosen by my university to encourage those at a local school to continue studying French, providing lessons and giving an insight as to how their French studies would progress.

English teacher in a large school in Senegal as well as tutor to local students. I prepared all my materials with very few resources available.

Teaching Assistant in North London teaching French, coached sports and helped significantly in the smooth flow of the daily school activities.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is based around:

Being adaptable and seeing what the student needs.

Assessing their strengths and weaknesses, adapting my teaching materials to keep them interested but also challenged.

Fostering a friendly atmosphere in order to be approachable so that the pupil gets the most out of the sessions.

Tutoring in a manor which is friendly but firm, in order to get the best results for the student.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and passionate graduate from Oxford University with a love for languages. Having achieved a first class degree in French and Linguistics, I am keen to pass on my knowledge and love of language and literature to other students. I completed a research Masters in West African French literature, and am currently pursuing my studies in the second year of my doctorate whilst also developing my teaching experience. I hold a TEFL qualification and have taught a wide range of students in France, Brazil and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL teaching:
- Beginner and Intermediate classes at International House London as part of training. Highly commended.
- Part of a student-led initiative in Oxford to teach English to low wage workers. We organised evening classes for international adult students of multiple levels of proficiency.
- Teaching experience in Wizard and ERTE schools in Bahia, Brazil.
- Private tutoring for GCSE student as well as adults learning French.
- English tandem learning with advanced adult learner from China: conversational and written English.

British council:
- English teacher for 11-16 year olds in Laval, France in 2009-10. Planned and delivered English lessons focussed on speaking and listening, current affairs, and reading skills.

Warwick University:
- Teaching first and second year students in French language and literature as part of my PhD.

Primary school:
- Teaching assistant 2006-7 in Garden House School, London. Prepared and assisted lessons for year 1 pupils, as well as organising timetables and caring for students. Involved some special needs assistance.

Youth work:
- Worked as part of two youth work teams over 3 years to organise activities and teach teenagers aged 15-19.

Mentoring:
- Reading programmes with younger students struggling with English language.
- Advised and assisted GCSE and A-level students in preparation for exams and applying for higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

Depending on the individual needs of each student, I will prepare a range of tasks to build confidence in specific areas of weakness. From past experience, a lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers to learning, so in all cases I seek to reassure a student of existing strengths and abilities before and during our tuition. More generally, we will develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through different activities to strengthen and accelerate ongoing language learning. Where appropriate/desired, I will bring in relevant texts and materials to develop broader reading building up analytical and critical skills. Grammar work will always feature, though in well-balanced chunks which aim to be accessible AND enjoyable!

Most importantly, I hope to inspire students of any level to relish and enjoy their studies, and to yearn for a more solid grasp of their subject and a higher proficiency in each area of language learning.

Personal Description:
My name is Carl and I am a Photography Teacher based in Solihull in the West Midlands. I been teaching photography professionally for the last five years, mainly teaching Jessops training courses. I also have Licenship from the Royal Photographic Society

As a dedicated photographer I love taking the type of pictures that many people enjoy such as my children, scenes around Great Britain or wildlife in the local park. We all love holidays in far of lands but photography skills & techniques can be developed in your back garden so I believe this is as good a place to start

Teaching Experience:

While running training courses for Jessops I have developed a great deal of understanding of how different peoples photography training needs can be, so I am please to also offer personalised one to one camera training

I also run practical sessions at South Birmingham Photographic society and can also teach all of the related subjects around the field of digital imaging, such as Image manipulation in Photoshop or Lightroom as well as how best to print or store your images

I have a great deal of experience offering one to one tuition on how to get the most from your camera whether it be SLR, Compact or Bridge and can customise your tuition to exactly match your requirements

I have experience with Nikon, Canon, Sony and many other makes of camera

Tutoring Approach:

My philosophy is that its that photography, unlike many other forms of art can be learned and with practice and guidance we can all learn to take great images

In the end its all about producing great pictures so I teach the simplest most effective way of producing the very best images and treat the camera as a device for taking good raw material which can be developed quickly and easily in the computer

I explain what camera controls to take advantage of and what gets in the way of taking great pictures. I offer a clear understanding of what makes a great image and how to use the camera data / histogram to ensure you have captured all the detail you require

Personal Description:
I am 29 years old and have been teaching A level and GCSE English and history at sixth form college for seven years, in which time my results have far surpassed national pass rates. Moreover, due to these outstanding pass rates and innovative teaching methods, my English department has been awarded a grade 1 'Outstanding' for the past 4 years. I have a passion for English and history, and take great pride in providing an excellent education to all of my students, seeing it as crucial to success in their later careers.

Teaching Experience:

I have a broad range of experience turning around failing classes, as well as challenging high achieving students. In my teaching career thus far I have taught a wide age range from 9-18 years, and specialise in teaching troubled students and those lacking confidence, as well as pushing very bright pupils. Since I began teaching at my institution, English pass-rates have received a 25% upwards leap in two years, so that the vast majority of my classes are now passing with high academic grades and attaining entry to prestigious preparatory schools and/or universities. With these excellent results I have now been made an advanced teaching practitioner, tasked with passing on my skills to other teachers and helping drive up standards

Tutoring Approach:

Besides enjoying superb results, my pupils benefit from a relaxed yet challenging atmosphere, with high commitment being expected of them and this has shown to bring both personal and academic growth, which is always pleasing to see. Moreover, in strengthening self-esteem and exciting the minds of my students, to provide them with the skills they need to excel in later life, I seek to provide them with only the finest education possible.

Personal Description:
I am presently working for a Phd in Physics at Cavendish Labs (University of Cambridge). I work broadly in the area of condensed matter physics and do experiments at subKelvin temperatures with a view to understand the phenomenon of superconductivity. I have a great interest to understand the way nature works at the microscopic scale. When I am not doing physics or maths I spend my time traveling around, playing table tennis, watching movies and reading books.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from very young age to first year undergraduates. I have taught Maths and Physics courses at Reach Cambridge program to final year school students. I have also supervised Part1A quantum mechanics and special relativity courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make concepts as physical as possible so that one can grasp them easily. At the same time I emphasize rigor and abstract approach as well. Certain amount of abstraction helps in tackling or understanding certain problems or concepts. Its is a good balance between both that I find is crucial to the best understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
I am a dynamic, enthusiastic and hard working tutor with a love for English language and literature. I graduated in July 2012 from Cambridge University with a degree in English, specialising in modernist literature and ancient and renaissance tragic drama. I have 5 A Levels in English, French, History, Politics and General Studies and I can read and speak French at an intermediate level.

I now work for the BBC in the Drama Commissioning department and am looking to tutor in my spare time.
My hobbies include reading, writing, visiting museums and galleries, watching modern theatre and socialising.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for one year and have had coached several pupils through their English Literature A-Levels across three different exam boards and all of varying standards. My proudest achievement this year was one of my students receiving an A Grade, brought up from a C Grade at AS Level, and going to her chosen university as a result.

While I was at school I was part of the tutoring and mentoring scheme, and helped to tutor pupils aged 11-13 in extra French classes and homework classes which I really enjoyed. As part of my Gold Duke of Edinburgh qualification I volunteered at my local Sunday School where I taught children aged 8-14.

I also represented the school as a Charity Volunteer on a trip to the Gambia, where I taught classes of 30 children aged 4-11 in all subjects, including English, Maths, Music, Art and Sport. It was a great experience to teach such a wide range of pupils and abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor pupils aged 11-18 in English language or literature and in particular prefer teaching in order to prepare for GCSEs or A-Levels. I would also be happy to tutor pupils at degree level in English literature, whether this is helping with dissertations and assignments, or helping gain a deeper understanding of the subject through additional reading and lecture notes.

I tutor one-on-one and am happy to be very flexible on style depending on the pupil's needs. Ideally I would want to work through their current syllabus and help with any problems and queries, as well as doing some additional work and reading around the subjects that interest the pupil.

As I work full time I would need to tutor at evenings and weekends, and can be flexible on days. I would be happy to tutor for 1 or 2 hours however often the pupil wanted. I live in North West London and work in central London, so would like to tutor pupils based in a similar area (Kentish Town, Camden Town, Euston, Fitzrovia)

Personal Description:
I am a final year undergraduate student of Physics at the University of Strathclyde, currently working towards my Masters accreditation having this year achieved a Bachelors degree with Honours.
En route to this point, I have worked both with the public in customer service jobs - through which I have greatly improved my communication skills - and with research doctors at a professional level, where I came to appreciate the support and value a good education can bring.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my studies I have often been called on to present my work to professors and peers alike. I have found that to do so effectively requires both a solid understanding of the material, and an ability to put oneself in the position of the audience. I have been perfecting this ability over the course of the last four years, and I believe it to be a core skill in a tutor.
In addition, I am elder brother to two siblings and, being the first through the gauntlet of high school, frequently on the receiving end of a call for help, which I am only too happy to be able to answer!

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst more often than not my brother and sister would be calling for the answer to a question and nothing more, I have found that the best way to slow their calls is to tackle the root of the question: comprehension of the subject at hand. In school the curriculum will be under immense pressure to be completed on time, and in addition to all the other subjects a pupil will be doing, it's easy for, say, some discreet law of indices to slip the mind.
I believe that by spending just that little bit more time tackling some related questions with somebody who knows what pitfalls to look out for, a student with the right attitude can improve their grades. And I believe that's where I can help.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of both Spanish and English (raised and educated in Spain by English parents and educated to university level in the UK) with experience tutoring. I am culturally as well as linguistically fluent in both English and Spanish, as well as well-read in both. I have studied French to university level and Art to A-level, already having a preexisting understanding of art due to both my parents being professional artists and amateur art historians themselves. Being a tutor in languages and literature, I am very skilled with language and linguistics and am able to teach a variety of writing styles.
I have tutored a variety of students across my subjects, from preschool children needing an introduction to Spanish to adult learners seeking to improve their English, to students who wanted to better their written communication.

Teaching Experience:

I have accumulated 3 years of private tutoring so far, I have worked as part of a Cardiff-based tutoring company and I have worked on a part-time basis with several companies (including a law firm) translating documents and letters.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a variety of courses at different levels and for a range of skills.

For languages:
-A basic lesson-plan for young children (2-5), where they learn through games and immersion.
-A more structured plan for children of primary-school age, where they learn grammar and structure in a traditional approach, still kept fun.
-A support course for students studying Spanish for GCSE or A-level. This is appropriate for both students who need to catch-up and students who have the potential to progress faster.
-A brief support course for students approaching their exams, to ensure they are confident in the subject. I am very familiar with these exams as I have taken them myself (obviously achieving A*s).
-A beginners' course for all ages.
-An intermediate course for all ages.
-An advanced course for all ages.
-A fast-track course in Spanish for travelers and tourists.
-And a conversational course for those seeking to improve their pronunciation, fluency and ease of speech.

For literacy/writing skills:
-A beginners' course for all ages.
-An intermediate course for all ages.
-An advanced course for all ages.
-A business course.
-A students' course.
-A creative writing course.

For art:
-A skills-based course for beginners.
-An intermediate skills-based course.
-An art history and skills-based course.
-A support course for GCSE or A-level students of Art.

Personal Description:
I'm Katie and I have been working in a private tuition industry for nearly 4 years. I am currently a private individual and group tutor for children from Year One to Year 6 including entrance exams for all those wishing to gain entry in to a selective Birmingham Secondary School . I tutor both Maths and English and believe children and families will gain the most from tuition if the service they receive is personalised and in an environment the feel comfortable in.

Teaching Experience:

I have lots of experience with children from my time at a private tuition centre, volunteering with Rainbow, Brownies and Guide units as a leader for 5 years. I also have experience working with children with difficulty reading, working weekly with them to build bonds and see real improvements. I am a patient and committed person who makes bonds easily with adults and children alike.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel tuition should be personal thus have a student by student approach to tuition. I feel some children work better in a know environment and some work better in a space that is new to them so am both happy to travel and work with children in my own home. My approach to home work is also flexible I understand many children have other commitments but some children will need homework to progress.
