Personal Description:
I always seek to organise lessons around the student's areas of interest.
I expect lessons to be both fun and challenging, and set clear goals and objectives for each student, both short- term and long- term.
I have lived and taught in France, Germany and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

6 years in a London Montessori School, age range 5- 16.
3 years in a London comprehensive, age range 11- 19.
3 years in a West Midlands comprehensive, age range 11- 16.
10 years in a Cheshire comprehensive, age range 11- 18.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a serious investment of time and money on the part of both student and teacher, and so I always spend part of the first session making sure that everyone is clear about the aims and objectives of the tutoring.

Personal Description:
I am currently a freelance writer and researcher working from home on a variety of subjects, including English Literature, Theatre/Film/Media Studies, Sociology, Psychology, as well as other Humanities. I am flexible about when I can tutor, to work round the schedule of others.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been English Literature and Psychology, and, increasingly, Sociology. At Cambridge I spent a few weeks working in a primary school, as I did when I was younger, and I used to teach primary school children at home as my mum was a childminder. I have run drama clubs and workshops, and worked with a host of young people, including those with learning difficulties. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with University students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have access to previous papers and model exam answers, and ensure that I am clued up on exam specifications and changes. For English, I will of course always read the set texts that my tutees are studying prior to the first session. I like to mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, and always make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realize, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.

For Psychology and Sociology, a more systematic approach is required; I generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations, and generally helping the student grasp what is required of them in the exam.

Personal Description:
Hi. I am a qualified secondary teacher and I specialise in English and Maths 1-2-1 tuition, from primary (KS1 and KS2) to GCSE level (KS3 and KS4) My teaching degree was completed successfully at Manchester Metropolitan University which is an 'outstanding' teacher training course provider who received a 'Grade 1' by Ofsted in 2010. I am quite flexible with regards to the times I can offer for the private tuition sessions. I am currently contracted to work in schools through Kirklees doing 1-2-1 tuition with children from Years 7-11.

I am a fully qualified teacher and hold PGCE & QTS (qualified teacher status) I am also a registered member of the GTC (general teaching council) and a member of ATL 'The Association of Teachers and Lecturers' and also the 'NASUWT'

Teaching Experience:

I have had an extensive range of experience teaching across many different schools in West Yorkshire. I have taught at KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5 levels in schools around West Yorkshire. I have also worked with special needs (SEN) children in schools across the Kirklees area. The work was very rewarding and this made me not only work harder but also allowed me to enjoy the work I was doing, this really motivated me in all aspects of my teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher, I feel that any child who is lacking academically in their general work or their confidence needs to have some sort of additional help to equip them with the knowledge and skills which will be essential for them to use in the future. One to one tuition will allow your child to develop their understanding in areas of Maths and English which they might have found difficult to understand in school. It will also allow myself to help your child in specific areas of Maths or English which they don't feel confident with. I will try my utmost best to gather information about your child prior to them starting the tuition sessions such as gathering their reports from school and also their test and exam grades to help me identify their areas of weakness.

Personal Description:
I am a hard working young lady who has graduated from university with A 2.1 HONORS. I currently work for Saint Gobain as a Business Development Manager. I have a positive out look on life and face every task with a high level of enthusiasm and effort.
I enjoy working with children as I enjoy the challenge and the atmosphere.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring young children for the past seven years now whilst studying and working myself. My main age range is 4-16years

I have previously conpleted placements in primary schools and nurseries as part of my My qualification coursework which involved me analysing young children's behaviour.
I have also helped out in the brownies and in the Catholic youth club.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child has a different method of learning, however it is important they all know the basic set cirriculum. Thus I adapt my method of teaching to suit the child's abilities but ensure the correct knowledge is attained by the child.

Personal Description:
I am an honest and reliable person who works hard. I enjoy travelling, skiing and cycling. I really love my work and have decided to become a self employed tutor. I am currently living in Lowestoft, but am willing to travel as far as Norwich for employment.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1994 and have worked in Malaysia as well as the UK. I spent eight years in Malaysia working in private language schools. In addition, I spent two years teaching English to GCSE level at a boarding school.

More recently, I have worked in prisons teaching English to both foreign nationals and local prisoners. I have also taught ESOL at local colleges. I have had some experience of working with small groups of children. My specialist subject areas are English as a Foreign Language, English grammar and pronunciation.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student has different goals and needs. Therefore, I adopt a flexible approach to learning depending on what the student hopes to achieve. I believe that grammar is important and find that many students request help in this area. I also believe that reading is very important and have developed suitable resources for use with both adults and younger learners. I also work a lot on pronunciation and conversation skills. Generally, a course will include practise of all five skills with more emphasis on certain areas according to the individual needs of students.

Personal Description:
***CURRENTLY LIVING IN GERMANY & AVAILABLE FOR ENGLISH CHECKING (BY E-MAIL) ONLY****

I am a professional in my 30s with degrees in English & Italian Literature (BA 2:1, Warwick 2000) and the History of Medicine & Science (MA Merit, Birkbeck College, University of London). I also hold a CELTA qualification in teaching English Language to adults.

Following my masters degree I studied acting at Rose Bruford College and have performed at fringe venues in London and Belfast though tend now to concentrate on writing for the stage. My book of dramatic monologues, "Untold Lives" was published last year and is now available on Amazon. My first novel, "And I Shall Be Healed" was published by Quickbeam Press in January 2014,

Proof-editing: contact for rates.

In addition to teaching I also offer a proof-reading service so for university essays / research proposals / writing projects, please do contact me for rates.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently living and working as a CELTA qualified EFL teacher in Bonn, Germany. In addition I have 9 years private tutoring experience. Much of this was tutoring GCSE students in English Literature with some history and A'Level students.

In addition to this I hold a CELTA qualificatin and have taught English language at summer schools in Italy.

I hold a CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to proof-editing / English checking is to look primarily at the language. For some clients - university students in particular - it is not appropriate to offer an editorial service as this goes against the rules of university submissions. However, where I think a mistake has been made or something is not clearly expressed - and it is not a simple matter of correcting the language - then I will flag it up to the student so they can look at it again.

My main aim with students is to build their confidence and enthusiasm for the subject. To this end I concentrate on teaching the skills they require to achieve the grades they want. My role is not to replace the teaching they get at school but to compliment it so a tutoring session could concentrate on planning an essay the student has been asked to write or going through specific areas the student needs help with. I won't necessarily give homework - unless required - as I feel students have enough to do without me adding to their workload.

In return I expect my students to engage with the sessions. They don't have to like the subject and of course I'm there to help those who don't understand some things or just need a little help or encouragement, but the student must be prepared to be tutored.

Personal Description:
I am a University student currently studying Psychology at Staffordshire University.
I am reliable, friendly and very enthusiastic about teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored GCSE level and below students while studying for GCSE's as well as while studying for my A-Levels informally.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that students don`t all think the same way and what method of learning might work for one student may not work for all students. I try as much as I can to cater to individuals to ensure they get the most out of my sessions.
I believe that with the right teaching and motivation, students can gain appreciation for any subject and enjoy rather than just endure the learning process.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Hana and I am very excited at this opportunity to become a tutor.

I obtained 10 GCSEs, including an A* in French and English. I then moved on to take the Intenational Baccalaureate rather than A-levels which improved my general skills as well as subject knowledge. I achieved a level 5 in both French and English Literature (both at higher level).
I am currently studying French and Art at university.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I did a week of work experience in a primary school, working with children from the age of 4 up until the age of 11. During this placement I assisted with English and reading, art lessons and French lessons. The experience was very rewarding and I even received (handmade) presents from some of the students when I left!

Very recently I worked and lived in a château in France for 8 weeks, vastly improving my level of French during my stay. I also began to teach some French children a bit of English, but most of my time was taken up speaking French with the locals and visitors who came to stay in the château.

I have also helped my younger brother and neighbours with homework and revision several times!

Tutoring Approach:

I hope to tutor in a fun and practical manner, using art or memory techniques where I can! I can change my approach depending on the age of the person being tutored, as well as their individual needs and requirements.
I myself find that colours, pictures and interesting work sheets can aid learning and revision, thus I will try to incorporate these where I can!

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of Religious Studies and Philosophy who teaches just outside of Reading.

I have a PGCE with qualified teacher status from Exeter University and a 2:1 in Religious and Theological Studies from Cardiff University.

I also hold a TEFL- Teaching English as a Foreign Language qualification.

I am currently working at Amnesty International as an Education Officer alongside my part time teaching post.

Teaching Experience:

- I have taught in a secondary school outside of Reading for 8 years

- I have tutored various candidates over the last 8 years in GCSE, A-Level and Degree Religious Studies and Philosophy.

- Within my tutoring I have a consistently high success rate, with 100% A grade at AS and A-level Religious Studies, and 100% A*-B grades for GCSE Religious Studies and Philosophy.

- I have also tutored a number of students who have English as a second language and built their language skills to give them greater success in a variety of English Language exams.

Tutoring Approach:

- As a fully qualified teacher I have a strong understanding of the A-Level and GCSE Religious Studies courses and exam technique. I also have a good awareness of on going developments and changes within the Religious Studies and Philosophy syllabi and the university admissions process

- I work with students to build their confidence by raising their knowledge levels and allowing them to improve their exam technique. I also use both additional resources and higher order questions to stretch the most able and allow them to achieve excellent results.

- Throughout my tutor sessions I also use a number of discussion topics to build knowledge which will be particularly suitable for prospective Oxbridge candidates

Personal Description:
An experienced language teacher living in Brazil, teaching Portuguese and English.
After graduating with a masters degree I worked in Architecture and Urban Design for several years, perfecting my formal written language skills producing and editing professional reports.
Since 2009 I've been living and working in Portugal and Brazil, where I discovered a passion for languages and cultural exchange. I enjoy teaching but also work in translation. In my spare time I do volunteer work in the poorest neighbourhoods, known as favelas.
Through teaching I try to impart some of my enthusiasm for Brazil, the beautiful language and the fascinating, diverse culture. I enjoy helping others on their own journey to deepen their understanding and appreciation of both the language and culture.
In my experience I found that knowing even a little Portuguese goes a long way and increases hundredfold the opportunities to work and travel in Portugal and Brazil. Especially in Brazil, there's a very low level of English in the general population, and also it's a very different place to what we're used to in Europe, often baffling, dangerous, and although developing fast, the infrastructure for foriegn visitors is still very poor, often impossible for non-Portuguese speakers. So for foreigners to see anything beyond the cliche tourist attractions and guided tours, it's essential to be able to communicate in Portuguese, making the experience much safer and more comfortable.
But also a wealth of impressive career opportunities opens up for those who possess even basic Portuguese skills.

Teaching Experience:

I have 7 years language teaching experience. I've been living and working in Brazil for this time and I've reached a good fluency in Portuguese, both formal written language as well as the day-to-day spoken Portuguese, which can be quite different.
In my Portuguese classes, I like to help students to skip the parts I learnt the hard way, to avoid common pitfalls, and I show the techniques I discovered to be the most useful in my own learning process.
My students often value my lessons in particular becuase it's easier for me to see their point of view when encountering difficulties. Whereas a native Portuguese teacher didn't personally go through the same process, learning Portuguese as a second language. So they often don't realise sometimes the simplest thing can be difficult for us to grasp.
I pass on these special tips in addition to the standard Portuguese as taught in the classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning is supposed to be stimulating and fun, so I always like to mix up a class with a good balance of hard brain work and fun learning to stimulate the students own sense of curiosity outside lessons.
I like to get to know each student so I can cater lessons to meet each individuals' specific requirements. Material and tutoring approach differ from student to student depending on personal/professional interests, strengths, weaknesses and learning objectives. We go at the student's own pace to ensure effective, grounded learning.
Class time is focused on active learning through conversation, audio and video material and practice til perfect. Classes also include a strong theoretical element, so while creating confident speakers who can communicate with ease, there's a solid knowlege base of spelling and grammatical structure.
We do regular progress reviews and feedback sessions to ensure we keep on track for acheiving goals.
Class material also covers aspects of Brazilian and Portuguese culture, geography, history and current affairs, to reinforce language learning with general knowledge. As well as bringing the language to life, the learning process becomes more colourful and more enjoyable. Plus the added value of cultural awareness provides that critical competitive edge in future interactions with Portuguese speakers.
