Personal Description:
Please note that travelling is only for exceptional circumstances. Most classes are at my home office,

I am a semi retired, graduate teacher from the south of England now living in the north west. Students may see some of my activities at my web site which lists books I have written for students of literature. I am equally at home with all aspects of English, at any level, from the key stages and entrance tests- including verbal and non verbal reasoning- through to dissertation grammar checks with EFL tuition for under/post graduates. I also tutor for Gmat , Kaplan, Gamsat and medical school English tests.(Please note that the mission statement "Sail through with Symposium" was formed before prevalent, refugee distress and rescue at sea. If my picture is visible, I am in the Centre wearing a dark jacket.

I am an accomplished Pianist with supporting qualifications - Grade 8 Piano, Grade 6 Theory (ABRSM) along with A level Music, and also have previous experience in teaching Piano and keyboards.

I adapt lessons to suit the requirements of the student and can provide a range of supplementary work materials to reinforce the learning of the topic being taught. Includes work on harmonizing melodies, analysis, composition, listening and dictation, history and appreciation (list not exhaustive). There are many topics to be learnt, however I aim to integrate elements of each so that lessons are rewarding and motivating. I am able to provide advice on instrumental practice also.

Personal Description:
My interests include cycling and cooking. I am married and have three daughters. My students appreciate my approachable and relaxed style of teaching. I worked as an industrial chemist for GSK and Avecia but retrained to become a teacher, this gives me a more rounded picture of chemistry and its application in real life situations.

Teaching Experience:

4 years at University level
3 years secondary schools
2 years at FE colleges
4 years home/online tutoring
A-level, advanced higher, higher etc

Tutoring Approach:

Simple effective approach. Students need to succeed, I get students through exams as I have good subject knowledge and know how to teach. Students increase in confidence and gain a deeper understanding of chemistry. I teach using Skype and an online application called scribblar, this is really the future of home tutoring and is just as effective as if I am in the room with the student. I have a satisfaction guarentee ie if you are not happy with the service you don't pay.

Personal Description:
I'm a graduate-entry third year medical student at Imperial College London. I graduated from the University of Sheffield with an upper second class honours degree in Biomedical Sciences in 2012. In between my two degrees I worked as a Medical Assistant in Paediatrics A&E at St George's Hospital, I admire the energy that young people have and found working with children so rewarding. My education and work life has equipped me with solid communication skills, and the ability to work with a vast range of people. Pursuing a path in science has required a lot of motivation, whilst studying for my degrees I consider that my organisational and time-keeping skills have been vital. Despite my background in science I have always maintained a creative side too, and have a keen interest in literature and the arts.

Teaching Experience:

Taking part in numerous voluntary projects has given me a lot of opportunity to teach, both one-to-one and in group scenarios. Whilst volunteering at my local hospital I helped on the children's ward to ensure the patients were not missing out on their education. This included helping children of all ages with their coursework and school syllabus'. I took part in a project based in South Africa teaching at an orphanage, this was a challenge due to the limited resources available, and a language barrier. However, using innovative ways as a team we were able to conduct lessons teaching English, Numeracy and Music that were accessible and enjoyable for the children. During my university career I have completed assignments presenting my own research or ideas to groups of students and tutors, this required explaining concepts in a clear and concise manner. Over the past two years I have tutored several students privately. I have found this experience rewarding and am very proud of their achievements.

Tutoring Approach:

I am always keen to share my enthusiasm in the subject that I am teaching. I am aware of the importance of maintaining a student's interest in the subject. In order to do this, I believe it is vital to assess each student's style and tailor my teaching towards their individual needs. I am very patient, and am happy to explain concepts in numerous different ways to ensure that a student is comfortable. I approach work in a professional manner, and appreciate the importance of time-keeping and dependability.

Personal Description:
Hi,

My name is Kerry and I have a Masters in Translation and Interpreting plus a BA in Modern European Languages (French, Spanish, Italian)

Can show certificates as proof as and when required.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching English as a foreign language (in an Italian High School)
I also have experience teaching GCSE French/Spanish in an English High School.

Tutoring Approach:

I like learning to be fun, otherwise it becomes a chore.
I find that it helps when learning a language if you can relate to what you're learning. For this reason, expect a lot of current affairs, current music, current films etc. to be included in the tutoring.
Obviously, curriculum specific work can be carried out too.

Personal Description:
I am a 26-year old freelance journalist, born and raised in Germany. I have two Master's degrees, one in politics and one in digital journalism. Because of working in media & communications I am used to reviewing written text and highly aware of people's way of expressing themselves. I have a huge passion for languages and have learned Spanish for over 10 years now, including extensive stays in Spain, and I am perfectly fluent in English.

Teaching Experience:

Mostly 1 on 1 teaching and reviewing written texts over the last few years. Also, I taught a GCSE class in German at Royal Greenwich UTC for half a year. My students have significantly improved in their skills and I prepared several people for their move to Germany.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer a natural approach to learning languages which means engaging in everyday conversations that help the speaker get used to the way they usually talk in a new environment. I also look precisely for mistakes in any kind of written work and take much care about correct grammar and spelling as I do in my own publications.

For politics in journalism I can also edit written work and talk through complex political and social processes which I have extensively analysed during my studies.

  • Journalism

Personal Description:
I am passionate about helping people and inspiring them, and I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world and helping them to improve their English and gain confidence. I am friendly and approachable, and have a calm and patient teaching manner. I strive for personal integrity and professionalism.

I really enjoy learning languages myself - I speak French and Spanish and I am keen to learn more languages. I love travelling and have visited many countries. I lived in South America for a short time. I really like learning about different cultures and people!

English is my native language.

Teaching Experience:

I have 12 years experience of teaching English. I have taught in London, New Zealand and Argentina. I have taught general English and business English, and the exams I have taught are IELTS and CAE.

I taught a student in Japan on Skype for two years, so I have a lot of experience teaching online.

I love teaching beginners - if you are a beginner or if you have a friend or family member who is a beginner then please contact me!

Most of my students have been pre-intermediate to intermediate level, but I have taught all levels from beginners to advanced.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all I will find out from you in a free consultation exactly what you want help with and what your goals are for studying English with me. Then I will plan our lessons according to your English needs. Usually in a normal lesson we will have conversation and speaking practise and I will give you plenty of opportunity to speak and practise your English, then I will give you feedback and go through your mistakes with you. I will also teach you new vocabulary and then we will practise this in speaking activities. However, if you are really confident in speaking English and want to practise other skills such as reading then we will do this instead. Usually I teach lessons that incorporate speaking, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading and grammar. I think homework is very important so I will also set you homework to do in your own time.

Writing: if you would like me to correct your writing (for example you send it to me, I mark it and send it back), my fee for this is £14 per hour, plus Paypal fees.

Personal Description:
I am a second year university Student in Southampton, I study Journalism and achieved a first in the first year of university. I want to pass on knowledge I have learnt in a number of work places, including Reuters in Canary Warf. I specialise in Journalism, History, Politics and in particular English Language.

Teaching Experience:

Have taught for a brief time in Primary Schools, however the main part of my teaching is now peer to peer making it less intimidating for a student to ask questions they may have on a topic.

In my secondary school I was a mentor for 11-17 year olds providing help and support for any school related needs they may have had.

I find nothing more fulfilling that helping a fellow student and watching them learn and understand the problem they once had trouble with.

Tutoring Approach:

Students will be able to voice questions they may have, and not feel embarrassed as I am a student myself. There will be homework involved, and I will target the area of the subject that the student is struggling with.

The fact I am still a student is important as I can bridge the gap between teacher and student. The most common problem students come to me with is that they feel embarrassed to ask questions to their school teacher.

I do not try and recite words from a textbook, but ask the students to learn from my experiences and ultimately do the best they can do.

Personal Description:
I'm a Brazilian freelance photographer and film-maker based in London. Specialized in making ethnographic videos and documentaries, I also film and photograph live events, including talks, workshops and performances. I have worked in the UK and internationally creating content for research agencies, charities, schools, universities, individuals and businesses.

I hold an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London. I also have ten years professional experience as an image-maker, stretching back to my time as a photojournalist for Jornal do Commércio, a regional newspaper in my hometown of Recife. My academic training and extensive practical experience allow me to work with understanding and sensitivity whilst representing people's habits, cultures and environments. I am attuned to capturing the details of people's everyday lives and the ways they communicate, eat, dance, work, pray, interact and shape their homes.

My approach to photography and film-making relies on building an empathetic, personal and respectful relationship with people, applying methods of anthropology, and documentary, alongside poetic imagery and engaging storytelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of tutoring and classroom assistance, and working with children, young people and adults in the UK and Brazil.

My previous experience includes:

Teaching Assistant: Video production for Anthropologists (May 2017)
Spectacle - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers and students on training Course.
- Helping students utilizing video cameras and sound equipment.
- Assisting students using video editing software.
- Assisting students doing practical video exercise in location.

Teaching Assistant: Film (Nov 2013 - Jul 2014)
Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers with classes of young people aged between 9 and 19 years old.
- Providing classroom support during film and drama lessons.
- Assisting individuals and groups with workshop and classroom activities.

Teaching one-to-one classes (Jun 2012 - Jan 2013)
- Planning, preparing and teaching one-to-one Photography and Portuguese courses for young people and adults.
- Responsible for adapting existing material or designing new material to suit individual learning needs.
- Planning and running photographic workshops and day trips for students.
- Marking and providing formative feedback on work.

Teaching and Laboratory Assistant: Photography (Sept 2010 - Sept 2011)
Universidade Católica de Pernambuco - Recife, Brazil.

- Technical, teaching and laboratory assistant for undergraduate courses in Photography and Photojournalism.
- Introducing photographic and darkroom techniques to students.
- Classroom and teaching assistance.
- Responsibility for maintenance and organization of photographic studios and darkroom.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I like to combine theory and hands on practice encouraging people to become independent learners, creative and critical thinkers. I have an empathetic, relaxed and joyful approach to tutoring and like to develop a good relationship with people to ensure that they feel comfortable to learn and to feedback on lessons. I like to work in collaboration with people to tailor lessons according to their needs, interests and levels.

With years of experience practising image making and studding the subject, I believe that theory and practice go hand in hand. With photography and film I think it's important to develop our 'ways of seeing' both by looking at things that have been made and by studding the thinking and mechanics behind these medias. It is also important to reflect on our own practice to develop our abilities and discover our potential.

A hand on experience is key when learning how to photograph and film. It is by practising that we familiarize ourselves and learn how to handle confidently our instrument of work. It's also by practising that we expose ourselves and learn how to deal with the unforeseen events that confront us when we are photographing and filming - be it the instability of light, decisions regarding compositions, interaction with a diversity of people, a great range of emotions that are presented to us while we hold the camera, etc.

I can facilitate photography and film making from camera work to editing for children, young people and adults. Please do get in touch to discuss - I'm always happy to help!
