Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher for all ages, from toddlers to business adults and I am also a postgrad MA student at Christie's Education studying Modern and Contemporary Art History. I studied Art History at Manchester where I achieved a high 2.1 and gained a First in my dissertation and so understand fully what it takes to structure and compile a piece of writing comprehensively and eloquently.

I am London based and have a bright engaging personality and outlook on teaching in order to engage and interest my students as much as possible in their lessons and their work. I aim to encourage and ensure progression to all my students of all ages, as I myself understand it is never to late to learn, however old or young you are.

My TEFL qualification has certified me as capable of teaching English as a foreign language to young learners, teenagers, large groups, one on one, business language and social.
From my time at school and also at university I understand comprehensively the skills required to achieve optimum marks and I have an extensive knowledge for History of Art at both A Level and University Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for the past three years and in those years I have predominantly taught younger children (6-14 year olds) as well as young adults (18-27 year olds). These have been in small groups or private tuition. I have taught students from a variety of countries including Russia, China, Italy and France to name a few.
I am more than capable of nurturing and handling the quietest and shyest of students to the very naughty and the very confident!
I was a peer mentor throughout University and helped settle new students into university life and assisted with any problems they may have. I gave talks on essay writing and study skills for both exams and essays at different points throughout the year.
If needed or more convenient I have also been trained to teach over the phone or through skype and have taught several people this way. If this sounds a more appealing means to take your lessons then feel free to ask me about this as an option.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on building a trusting relationshipewith the student and aim to build their confidence in the subject they are struggling with.
I will assess the students standard of knowledge and ask what areas they most wish to cover and what areas they feel they struggle with the most. From this first assessment I will then build a suitable lesson plan and rough timetable of topics and activities for them to complete and work on. So that they feel they are gaining as much as they can from every lesson with me.
I am firm but kind! I have a very calm nature and do not think it is positive to aggressively force students into situations or topics that do not interest them or are of no use. However, I will push them as much as I feel necessary in order for them to progress as far as possible and achieve the highest results.

Personal Description:
I recently returned to the UK after a number of years living and teaching in China, and now I wish to use the experience i have gained over the years to help students who need to learn English in the UK.
When i am not working i enjoy travelling and playing sport. In addition to living in China, i have also lived in New Zealand and Australia and travelled extensively in Europe.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years. My experience has been gained predominantly in China, though i have taught at a college in the UK. I have taught a variety of nationalities and also all ages and levels. I possess both the CELTA and DELTA teaching practice qualifications. I was also an IELTS speaking and writing test examiner for two years and have passed a Cambridge certified online course in the teaching of IELTS.

Tutoring Approach:

Having lived and worked in China for many years, i am aware of the difficulty of learning a foreign language. However,i believe that with the right attitude, approach and guidance it is possible to achieve your study goals in any language.
I believe in establishing realistic and quantifiable goals when beginning tutoring for progress to be measured against. I also believe that work done in a student's own time is as important as work done in a formal classroom setting. Regular review of what has been studied is also vital.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced mother-tongue tutor of English as a Second Language. I have worked in the UK and abroad and am an enthusiastic and motivated professional who loves her job.

I am passionate about lifelong learning and learn something new every year for fun. I am a coffee-drinking, book-reading, cake-loving, walker in the rain. I do yoga every day in the garden to the alarm of the cat next door. I enjoy travel, diverse cultures and meeting new people.

I think that accurate communication is vital. We must understand each other in our global village.

I believe that my role in life is to help people to develop their English skills and communicate without misunderstanding.

And to experience as many different books and cakes as possible in one lifetime…!

Teaching Experience:

I am qualified, experienced and professional English Language tutor (ESOL). I have taught individuals; small classes; large groups; all levels from Beginner to Advanced; exam preparation; CV building; job applications; interview skills; English for specific purposes, eg legal, medical or engineering, I have worked in multi-cultural classes with many different languages. I also taught in Sicily where all students shared a common language. I have high exam pass rates and excellent student retention rates.

Tutoring Approach:

Stress free! I believe that you must be relaxed to learn a language successfully. My focus is always on the needs of the individual student at that moment. I encourage, motivate and build confidence so that students can go easily and quickly into the real world and use their English skills without hesitation. I hold students accountable so that there is a real sense of progress from lesson one. I establish rapport easily and am reliable with a good sense of humour.

Personal Description:
I am a 29 year old CELTA qualified native English teacher with over 7 years teaching experience. I'm currently working at a British council accredited school near where I live in the city centre.

Teaching Experience:

The majority of my experience was at International House (IH), Sevilla, Spain. IH is an internationally recognised organisation for the teaching of English as a foreign langauge. During 5 years there, I specialised in preparing students for the Cambridge exams (KET, PET, First and Advanced).

Aside from that, I have worked in 5 different countries and so I am familiar with the difficulties faced by learners from many different language groups. My experience includes all levels, ages, one to one and groups.

In my present job, I am preparing a group for the IELTs exam.

I have also had a great deal of experience focusing on specific areas such as writing, checking CVs, proof-reading and business.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning comes from the student and that the role of the teacher is to support the student in this process. So, I always look to provide a context and environment in which a learner can develop. The context must be real and relevant to the students needs.

As a teacher, I have developed an in-depth knowledge of the language and learning resources which I can use to help students achieve their goals. I also believe that the learning experience does not start and finish at the beginning and the end of a class. Part of my role as a teacher is to plan and evaluate how learning objectives can be reached outside of class. For example, students should review and try to apply what they've learnt as much as possible and spend time practicing skills which they need to improve on a regular basis.

Personal Description:
As a child, I started developing passionefor languages by pretending to speak a different language to my dolls and singing in made languages too. I decided to study languages at UNIVERSITY because I believe that speaking other languages can take you everywhere. I am a bubbly persona nd very professional at the same time. I take any kind of commitment at heart and I stive to achieve the best in every situation. I am a punctual person a d serious regarding my job. I always see the brightest side in everyone and his contribute to my positive view of life. I love my job and I prioritise it. I am also motivated and self driven.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very passionate teacher of languages with years of experience in this field. I started teaching English privately in Italy, my native country, at the age of 16 and then carried on until the age of 24, when I moved to England. I graduated in Modern foreign Languages in Italy. In Bedford I took an Adult teaching certificate and taught ENGLISH as a foreign language. I am currently teaching Italian and Spanish in a secondary school at GCSE and A level levels. I also enjoy private tutoring as part of my teaching role. I am able to cater or all abilities as every student is an individual with different needs and learns at a different pace.

Tutoring Approach:

When contacted, I always contact the leaner back and arrange a meeting. I tend to be quite flexible anc accomodating as I understandsthe difficulties During the first lesson, I try to establish what the individual needs, the learners' goals so that when planning my lesson, I can take these information into account. My approach to tutoring varies according to the age of the learner and his/her prior knowledge of the language or the La ckof it. During my tutorials, I offer a variety of resources and I adopt different teaching style in response to the type of learner. I also set homework as a part of the part of the individual lerning. This is an incentive to boost their confidence in te language they are learning. I really love teaching and sharing my knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am an ex primary teacher who is now retired from teaching in schools, but with a wealth of experience. Currently, I work part time as a Pilates teacher and also offer private tuition. I love working with children and teens and feel I have much to offer your child as a private tutor. Over the years, I have tutored many children and young adults on an individual basis, with excellent results. I am a mother and grandmother, plus have worked in a voluntary capacity with young people in the Guides, Sunday Schools and running youth clubs.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified threshold three Primary School Teacher and have taught as a private tutor for over five years. My experience includes around twenty years of school teaching, mainly as a classroom teacher in years 3 and 4. I also taught throughout school from Reception to Year 5. As a family, we have hosted and taught language students. A recent experience was to coach a re-sit for the Australian Citizenship examination, which my student passed.
Other experience includes volunteering with Adult Literacy projects plus teaching expressive movement/dance and recorders in school clubs.
I worked for a year as a Special Needs Teacher at at local public school, where I taught small groups and individuals with good results. Recently, I volunteered for a year in a primary school, assisiting with Year One and Year Two language work such as phonics and reading.

Tutoring Approach:

We all learn best in a friendly, supportive atmosphere, which I feel I provide. I am creative in my approach to learning, but also am traditional regarding the building bricks, such as times tables, punctuation and grammar.
I would hope to support your child in overcoming obstacles regarding any gaps in their learning, to give encouragement and install confidence. Due to my long teaching experience, I can usually spot concerns quickly, targeting them to make learning time within the hour efficient.
If your family is time pressed, I may be able to support your child with their homework, depending on the work given.

Personal Description:
I grew up in North Wales until the age of 11, I then went to live in Tenerife, Spain and did all my studies up to University there and am proficient in both English and Spanish.

I have taught English as a second language in Tenerife, Spain from 2006 to 2014, to learners of all ages, from one to one lessons to small groups, as a self-employed tutor.

I have also done after-school English classes at a local Spanish school, worked in various nurseries teaching infants from 2 years of age and have been in charge of an English summer camp where children learn through crafts, sport and activities.

I started teaching because of the high demand from people needing native speaking English tutors in the Spanish city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and have taught myself grammar and different teaching methods, improving with experience.

Teaching Experience:

In April 2016 I obtained a 140-hour premier TEFL course certificate and I'm currently doing a Degree in English Studies at a Spanish University to become an English-Spanish linguist. In June 2016 I got the Distinction in the Intermediate Level Certificate in Welsh.

I have experience teaching conversation, grammar, vocabulary. Improving fluency for interviews and travelling abroad. Preparation of Cambridge and language school exams, and reinforcement of schoolwork.

In 2014 I moved back to North Wales to be near my family, I have been learning Welsh at Bangor University and I'm continuing my career by teaching Spanish locally in small groups and one to one lessons, and also teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) online.

Tutoring Approach:

I give a variety of interactive lessons where you can put into practice all of the language skills necessary to become fluent and have an active Spanish & ESOL learning experience.

I like to see the connections between the language or literature being studied and the daily life of the student - to me this is the way to transmit the true importance of their studies to the student. I love to mix fun and creativity with more formal tests and drills, using variation in order that the learning does not stagnate.

After Scottish Highers and A Levels, I got into Cambridge and I graduated with a BA in English. Afterwards I did a Masters in Twentieth Century Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London before doing part of a PhD at Leeds University. Immediately folowing my academic studies I started working and volunteering in the charity sector, eventually helping to establish a new homelessness charity in Cambridge.I have been tutoring and teaching since I left university and now it is my career. I do believe tutoring is my vocation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor and teacher for about 7 years in total. My Masters specialism was in literature, and I have wealth of English literature and language teaching experience. I have worked with children from age 4 upwards and adults of all ages and ability levels. I have worked as a self-employed tutor and also in state-funded and private educational establishments.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my approach to the individual depending on their learning style and their areas of interest. I spend time getting to know the student and developing a rapport before preparing lessons which make the learning material appealing to that individual. I like to set timelines, goals and homework so that students have a tangible sense of their progress and achievements. I work with a reward system where students set their own reward for results or outcomes they will work towards. I have experience of students achieving excellent results, but for me it is important that the student progresses and achieves what is appropriate to them and their long term goals
