Personal Description:
I am a 31 year old female professional, with a First class Honours Psychology degree and full Primary teaching status, as well as specialized experience, skills and knowledge in working with children and young adults with severe learning disabilities.
I am well-traveled and moved to Brighton in the summer of August 2008, to experience life near the sea within the UK. I have also lived in London, Australia and New Zealand.
I practice Hot Yoga and am a keen runner as well as a scuba-diver.

Teaching Experience:

I am in my eighth year as a qualified teacher and have worked within education of young people, particularly those with special needs, since I was 16.
I worked within a nursery over a 3year period, covering sickness and holiday relief, caring for children from all ages between 6months-5 years.
I have taught in all Primary year groups and currently have a Key Stage 1 and 2 class, specializing in Autism. I am up to date on many special needs provisions and have strong behaviour management skills. I am also a middle manager and the lead teacher for Literacy and Numeracy, for students ranging from age 5 to 19 years of age.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be enjoyable, interesting and applicable to real-life. Education lacking these elements will not, in my mind, endear itself to young people.
I am fair and consistent and expect high standards from all my students. I will always endeavour to cater for personal needs and to make learning individualized and therefore accessible.
I will not accept laziness but I will accept honesty - if a student finds something difficult, they know to tell me in order that I may assist them and overcome that particular hurdle.
When I am tutoring at GCSE and adult level, I also endeavour to make the sessions motivating, but ensure they are more student-lead and will scaffold the sessions but find tutees have more success when they are able to be guided rather than dictated to.

Personal Description:
Hello! I am 37 years old, originally from Denmark and moved to the UK 12 years ago for my degree. Before teaching, I worked as a monkey veterinary technician in the US, conducted my Masters research on crop-raiding macaques in Indonesia, and helped to run a volunteer expedition in the Amazon. After a couple of years of teaching in secondary school as a Science and Spanish teacher, I heard the call of the wild again and travelled for a year through Mexico and Central America. I am now working for an independent school in the Rochdale area and have gained experience tutoring a wide range of subjects and a wide range of ages.

I have an up to date enhanced CRB.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my teaching degree in 2007 at Canterbury Christ Church University. I trained in two very different types of schools, private Catholic school and selective high school, which gave me the experience to engage students of different abilities and backgrounds. I also received training to teach EAL and SEN students. My teaching qualification is in Science, but as a fluent Spanish linguist I have also taught Spanish to both adults and children. I teach Biology, Chemistry and Physics up to GCSE level, and other subjects I currently teach include Maths up to GCSE level and English up to Key Stage 3.

Tutoring Approach:

Students, young and old, don't like subjects they don't think they can succeed in. My approach is to break down material, relate it to everyday life and interests, and positively reinforce all the way to build up confidence. I am stubborn (!) and I don't give up until it's mastered.

Personal Description:
After more than twenty years of proven experience as teacher, tutor and social worker with a psychological background I would be the right person for supporting you.

I achieved my UK teaching qualification (PTLLS Level 4, City & Guilds) in July 2012.

I have experience in teaching German, Maths and English since more than 25 years and all my students in the UK have improved at least 2 grades since I have been teaching them.

I have extensive experience in working with students from many backgrounds and abilities.

I demonstrate meticulous attention to detail and have a tremendous amount of empathy.

I deal with students patiently, to advise and support them in a respectful way and tailor my lessons to the individual needs and aims of the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years experience in tutoring, children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I have the ability to motivate children and make them mentally stronger.

I try to find their individual strengths, instead of emphasizing their weaknesses. In this way I support the self- confidence of the child, and enlarge the inner motivation to learn, to study - and to enjoy it.

The most important skills I have are:

my patience, my creativity, my variety of teaching methods and my sense of humor.

Personal Description:
Experienced Session Musician, with 11 years live and studio experience. 8 years tutoring experience. Two co-written South African chart singles, 8 studio albums ( session and co-writing ), three international releases. One South African National tour.

Teaching Experience:

Having started my own music college in South Africa 6 years ago and tutoring students on a one to one basis for the last year in London. My experience as a tutor is vast, not only do I have teaching/tutoring experience but also years of live session work in studio and on stage with various bands. Often co-writing singles that would go to chart.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is tailored to each individual. Obviously in group sessions this can become complicated but I do always give each student personal attention so that they are learning the way that best suits them. I find just teaching students theory tends to take the Joy of music away ( and Music is first and foremost about joy and love for the art ). At the same time, on the opposite side of the coin not teaching the student any theory can be destructive.

My approach entails a mixture of Technique, Theory, and a vast amount of Practical. Because of each student being an individual, I mould my approach in how I teach them in these three areas, to maximize their potential.

Personal Description:
Post doctoral researcher at University of Sheffield, working to improve mathematical computer models which predict onset of heart disease.

I recently completed a PhD in Bioengineering at Imperial College London, carrying out mathematical research on heart disease. My first degree was in Maths at the same university, and I took a Masters in Biomedical Research in between.

I attended both a state school and a top boarding school and am comfortable to cover topics on and off the standard syllabus.

I am a very fun, friendly person with a wide range of activities and hobbies from inline skating to singing and playing the violin.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored A-level maths privately for a few years, and also spent several weeks as a teaching assistant in a secondary school during my undergraduate degree as part of the Student Associates Scheme. Many of my contemporaries from university are science and mathematics teachers across England and overseas, and I periodically discuss teaching methods and curriculum changes with them.

During my PhD, I led undergraduate tutorials and problems classes in the Mathematics and several Engineering departments, teaching undergraduates from 1st year to 4th year. The courses include Mathematical Methods, Matlab, Fluid Mechanics, PDEs, Modelling in Biology, Heat and Mass Transfer. I also carried out 1-1 tuition for undergraduates at departmental request. I have supervised a number of undergraduate and masters research projects and summer students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very approachable person and I prefer interactive sessions, although I can tailor the tuition style to the individual.

A first meeting would involve an informal chat for the student and I to get more familiar with his/her needs and style of working, and everything follows from there.

Personal Description:
10% discount on bank transfer payments!

I am an enthusiastic primary teacher who creates an effective learning atmosphere, by never judging the children I teach. I am good at extending children's learning, whether they need extra support or they are exceeding expectations.

I am passionate about education and want to offer children the best chance in their education. To become an excellent tutor and teacher I am working towards completing my Masters in Education. This means I can offer the most up to date educational theory.

I lived in Bradford for 4 years whilst completing my degree in teaching before moving to Brighouse when I started my new job in September 2013.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a supply teacher in schools throughout Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield,teaching children from Nursery to Year 6. I have taught several GCSE students, all of which have increased their grades, some from a G to B within only a few months.

I am currently teaching full time at a school in Huddersfield whilst offering one to one tutoring for 10 different children. At present, I have only a few spaces left, so contact me now!

Tutoring Approach:

I work hard to give an excellent tuition service. I provide all the materials required and provide you with up to date assessment details. I am starting to teach with the support of the new National Curriculum Document which will start in September 2014. This will give your child the most efficient teaching and learning.

I adapt work to the needs of my learners and provide different ways of learning. I understand children learn in different ways. After working with your child for only a few sessions, I can plan sessions which are suited to your child or children.

Personal Description:
I have a First Class Honours degree in Sociology from the University of Leeds. I'm fluent in Welsh and am offering tutoring in Welsh and English for Sociology up to and including degree level, and for Economics up to and including A level. I currently work as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor, mostly for students and academics, helping them express their ideas clearly and coherently in their work.

Teaching Experience:

In my role as proofreader, I am sometimes approached for advice on essay writing, often by people who have never been properly taught this key skill. Throughout my educational career, I have found that without this skill, an individual's progress can be severely restricted.
In the past I have also successfully tutored Sociology at AS level and was very pleased to see my tutees' grades improve when resitting exams. I feel that at least part of this success was due to the rapport we had built up from an early stage.
I am currently teaching an adult Welsh learner via Skype, which offers it's own challenges and opportunities.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the individual needs and circumstances of the tutee. We can work on homework, building on the feedback from their school teacher or university lecturer, as well as setting achievable targets to aim for. For this to work, it's vital for the tutee to feel comfortable and confident in the subject, and to find it interesting and relevant. There's nothing worse than reducing what can be a fascinating exploration into how the world works into a dry, and seemingly pointless exercise.

Regarding my tutoring rates: I prefer to work from home, but if that doesn't suit you then I can come to you. In such cases, I also ask for travel expenses to be paid as well. I do not have a car, so where possible this will be a bus or two.

I am also more than happy to meet in a public place (for adult tutees), or for the parents or guardian of the tutee to sit in on the lesson.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced and enthusiastic French teacher and tutor. I have been a French tutor for over twelve years and I have found that my work teaching in UK schools up to Advanced Highers (or A level) and my work as an examiner really helps me to design tailor made lessons. I have a proven track record - my tutoring really does help learners to achieve their language learning goals. I used to live near Lille, and then in Antibes in the south of France, and regularly visit to keep my knowledge and skills up to date.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored for over twelve years, and after completing my languages degree in 2002, I then continued to do a postgraduate teaching qualification, and I have been a French teacher and tutor ever since! I have experience teaching learners who would like to achieve success in exams, or those wishing to develop holiday, conversational or business French.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very enthusiastic and friendly. I find that my experience has led me to develop approaches to learning that are easy to understand and give learners the confidence and knowledge that they need to progress.

I like to develop tailor made lessons for each learner, and I feel that this is key - each learner is different and it is important for them to feel confident about their learning goals.

Personal Description:
I am a conscientious, patient, enthusiastic, sociable and highly motivated person who is reliable, responsible and hard working. As a teacher of italian I can say that I chose to do this job because I like to know about languages and different culturures and during long years of travel around Europe and Middle East, I realized that languages are important to tie people in the world. I have an excellent knowledge of my mother language which is Italian, the grammar an also of the different dialects that are scattered throughout Italy. I am courious to find differences between words, to know historical reasons and development of languages. Italian is a beautiful language, the sound is warm, like a song and during the last years I have found hundreds of people that want to learn it. That is why I decide to teach,people want to be able to talk with anyone, whatever their nationality. For me languages teaching is synonymous with cultural exchange: by fostering and interest in language, we stimulate intercultural awareness and empathy for others. I taught italian to different people with different ages, cultural background( arabic,bengali,european) and different life experiences and I developed excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the proven ability to achieve targets and results following a personal method depending on difficulties and abilities to facilitate their learning.
Amongst my many hobbies are several sports, including football, run, volleyball and high jump.
I love to write poetry, just because is my way to vent different feelings; reading, specially essays and middle eastern historical books.
I love to travel around the world and getting in touch with different cultures, in particular, I really like to know what differs from culture from the others as regard the social aspect of daily life and just as the food, language and family relations and interpersonal skills. I am really intrested in arabic culture.
I love to cook and try recipes from other countries.
I am very friendly so i love spend time with people and socialise and help them when they needed, specially during my teaching job even I always try to be professional.

Teaching Experience:

*Italian tutor freelance at all levels;
*Italian teacher trainee, London- UK

I taught italian as L2 in a class of Bengali adults for a voluntary purposes association.

٭Translator freelance, Rome - Italy and London - UK
Constant and actual job on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually apply and i strongly believe in an inductive method "spiral" dividing the teaching materials in different lessons and working cyclically on the different levels of learning(written and spoken comprehension, writing production and oral production);
I give attention to details and needs of the students and how to work with different levels and different learning skills;
I alwaysprogram, before lessons, some activities with a detailed lesson plan and interactive material;
Use of grammar books when needed.

Personal Description:
I am a creative and enthusiastic tutor specialising in English Literature and English as a Foreign Language. Educated to PhD level (Scottish Literature, The University of Glasgow), I hold the industry standard Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) and have over five years' experience teaching at private language schools, universities, high schools and one-to-one private tuition.

As a published poet, regular contributor to various literary journals, accomplished public speaker (having given talks and performances at the National Museum of Scotland, the National Gallery of Scotland, The Stand Comedy Club and TEDxGlasgow, among others), prize-winning literary critic and cultural events organiser, I bring my diverse knowledge, networks and skill set to bear on my approach to tutoring. My teaching style is one of shared discovery and rapport-driven creativity, whilst remaining focused on objectives and results.

The services I provide include (in any combination):

*One-to-one English language tutoring for children (5+), young learners and adults, including business English, conversational English, English for academic purposes and English for exam preparation (e.g. IELTS).

*One-to-one tuition for students studying English at high school (National 3/4/5, Higher, Advanced Higher) or undergraduate level.

*Proofreading and editing of written work (from high school essays to postgraduate dissertations), with professional feedback.

*Workshopping and feedback for creative writing, especially poetry, comedy and speechwriting, and coaching in public speaking.

Teaching Experience:

* Two years' experience in the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) industry, including one year with Shane Corporation, Yokohama, Japan, four months with Trinity College, Salerno and eight months with Kaplan International, Edinburgh. Experience teaching all ages and abilities, both one-to-one and in groups: English for young learners, conversational English, business English, English for exam preparation (e.g. IELTS).

*Two and a half years' experience as Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Glasgow, running undergraduate tutorials on Scottish Literature 1A, Scottish Literature 1B and English Literature 1A: Poetry & Poetics courses. This includes extensive experience grading essays and exam scripts and offering written feedback, as well as running creative writing workshops, developing students' skills in criticism, analysis, discussion and good writing practice, and providing additional pastoral support.

*One years' experience as a Top-Up Tutor with the University of Glasgow Widening Participation Scheme, working with S5 and S6 students at St Thomas Aquinas Secondary and Knightswood Academy to give them the skills, confidence and qualifications required for higher education.

*As former editor of the University of Glasgow postgraduate journal eSharp and book review The Kelvingrove Review I am an attentive editor and proofreader with a highly developed sense of the standards of academic writing, having given training workshops to postgraduate students at the University of Glasgow on writing book reviews and editing journal articles.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach depends fundamentally on the requirements of the student. For example, the requirements of a student studying for an IELTS exam will naturally be very different to those of one who wishes to cultivate their interest in poetry or brush up on their academic writing skills. Having taught extensively at both ends of this spectrum and everywhere in between, I know what techniques and materials to use to make each session as useful and as valuable as it can be, from traditional practice-makes-perfect approaches to more free-form, creative engagement. But regardless of the aims and approaches used in each session, I always ensure on creating a friendly but focused environment, which I have found works best for any student experience.
