Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

Personal Description:
Currently studying full-time Pure and Applied Mathematics at the University of Aberdeen.

I am a friendly, conscientious individual who cares deeply about young people's personal and academic development.

When not working or studying, I enjoy taking care of my health through the gym and a variety of sports.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years of tutoring experience. I have personally tutored 40+ pupils of varying mathematical ability, which has allowed me to refine and become very confident in my approach.

A large number of my tutees were found through word-of-mouth from former tutees pleased with their results.

I now have quite a few reviews, I have been registered on other websites for years and would be more than happy to supply references from other past tutees for your peace of mind.

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that everyone deserves the best chance at school. However, more and more of my tutees are complaining that their schools are failing to provide that. It seems that due to funding cutbacks/lack of qualified teachers, only the most naturally gifted pupils are given the right attention and everyone else is left at the bottom of the pack.

I have no such prejudice. It does not matter to me if you are a straight A student looking for some insurance, or if you are a bottom set student who has always struggled with maths. All I expect from my tutees is their attention and a willingness to learn. If you care about your education and future prospects, then so do I.

I am available for tutoring throughout the year, even during the summer holidays for 1st/2nd year university resits.

I am available weekday evenings and at the weekend, just let me know which times would suit you. I reply very quickly.

I have a car so travelling to your home is not an issue, however I may require additional fuel money depending on your location.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about all things English. With 16 years experience of preparing children for SATs, 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance and Common Scholarship, I am perfectly positioned to help your child achieve the very best results. I am also experienced in helping children through entrance exams to such prestigious schools as Kings, Marlborough, Winchester, Stowe and Eton. I have an in depth knowledge of child development and use this experience to guide even the most reluctant or struggling child through the various aspects of English grammar and literature. I have worked closely with learning support departments in order to support and extend those children with difficulties such as dyslexia. I am an experienced SATs marker and so have an good knowledge of what your child needs to know for this exam.

I also tutor for primary maths. I have always found working one to one, means I can identify your child's areas of weakness and we can work together to ensure they have appropriate strategies to ensure success in the future. I use both online games and pen and paper exercises to ensure your child is interested and having fun whilst learning.

I have also worked with adults, helping them improve their level of written language, specifically working on producing letters of application, handwriting and up to date c.vs.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 16 years and am Head of English at a large, well respected private school. I teach in both Key stage 2 and key stage 3. For the last 7 years I have also worked as a personal tutor to children from age 7 - 15, helping them achieve their potential. I have had huge success with these children, helping them to secure places in the schools of their choice.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in working together with children and giving them confidence to expand their experience in both writing and using English. I think that all writing needs to be relevant and interesting to the student to encourage them to want to improve. I use past papers, when appropriate, to ensure that children gain a secure knowledge of what to expect in upcoming exams as well as many other resources to extent your child.

Personal Description:
I did my undergraduate degree at St Andrews University and postgrad at Durham University; I've just returned from a year on research in the US. I love teaching and work for the Open University, which involves finding innovative ways to teach a large range of topics to students from 18 to 70 years old, which always makes for an interesting experience. I'm living in Newcastle and love the North East in general.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching at degree level since 2002, I have over 250 hours of face-to-face teaching experience.

I also have a Durham Teaching and Learning Award, a peer- and student- nominated annual prize given to 3-5 teachers in the university to recognise outstanding achievement.

I've taught in both the Philosophy and Theology & Religion departments of Durham University, as well as teaching Introductions to Arts & Humanities for the Open University. I frequently teach study skills and help address specific students' concerns about how to improve.

My experience also includes work in the Access/Widening Participation arena, and I have taught a variety of topics for the 14-18 age range, including work on the Sutton Trust Summer School programme.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is best summed up as "everyone is different". Finding out what someone enjoys, what they're good at, and how they think, is the first step in helping them get the most they can out of any topic or situation. The ways that people learn, and the things that fire their imaginations, are diverse - but the expectations of coursework and exams don't always recognise that. I see my job as not simply preparing people to pass a test or master a skill, but as helping them to discover what works best for them as a student, and giving them the confidence to approach new challenges successfully.

Personal Description:
Hi I'm Tom. I am 25 years of age and am a graduate from the University of Cambridge with a 2:1 degree in Natural Sciences in which I specialised in Chemistry and Mathematics.
Much like the 'supervision' style teaching of the University of Cambridge, I love to share my passion for problem solving with others on a one-to-one basis.
Outside of academia, my interests include Table Tennis and the Rubik's Cube.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years experience tutoring Mathematics and Chemistry at both GCSE and A-Level with students of all abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that there is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching, and that often there are many correct explanations and solutions to problems.
Each person is different, so if one approach fails we will try again from a different angle to ensure a clear and lasting understanding.
I will aim to work towards the syllabus but am also willing to deviate slightly if the tutee would benefit from a wider understanding of the subject.
I am patient and strive to instil real enthusiasm and confidence in the subject for each student.

Personal Description:
I have over six years of teaching experience across a broad range of subjects in literature, film and media studies, art and history. I am friendly, professional and passionate about my subjects and I believe in encouraging my students to access their enthusiasm about these subjects in order to unlock their potential. I have experience writing and coordinating my own courses in the areas of film studies and art history. I also have a record of academic excellence: I have a first class BA honours in English literature, an MA in literature and philosophy (Distinction) and a PhD in literature and history. I have published my own research into literature and film. I am a practicing artist.

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years experience teaching at university across a wide range of subjects in English literature, critical theory/philosophy and film and media studies. I have written and taught an Art History course on the relationship between Art and Revolution at the Cornerhouse (Home). I also have substantial experience tutoring at GCSE and A level. I have experience helping students with their reading practices, assignment preparation and preparing for exams. I have substantial experience offering proof-reading and assignment and dissertation support to undergraduate and postgraduate degree students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in an active and student-centred approach to learning whereby I provide the support and expertise that enables my students to play a central role in their own learning and development. My approach is to draw out my students' interest in their subject in order to develop their confidence and ability to engage academically in the most effective way.

It is important when teaching to develop this enthusiasm within the structure of the particular syllabus or course outline - I encourage my students to understand and respond to what is being asked of them, whether it be for an assignment, presentation or exam. I also aim to develop my students' ability to respond to and structure ideas and arguments in a logical and clear way. I endeavour to make my teaching engaging and interactive, incorporating diverse and innovative approaches to ensure active and enthusiastic student participation.

Personal Description:
I am a German national but have lived in the UK for over 30 years, having studied and raised a family in Newcastle. I am a very friendly, patient and supportive person and I relate well to young people. Now that I am semi-retired I enjoy reading, working in my garden, looking after animals and I keep fit by walking and swimming.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced teacher of German (former Head of Department) with a first class degree and well over 30 years of experience working in both the maintained and independent sectors. I have taught German to all levels and have achieved excellent results for my students at GCSE and A level throughout my career. My particular interest lies in working with the 11-16 age range and I specialise in preparing students for GCSE and IGCSE exams.

In my last post I was responsible for the organisation and conduct of public examinations, as well as for the introduction of IGCSE into our school. I am also currently working with the new syllabus for first examination in 2018.

For many years I successfully organised exchanges and residential stays in Germany, which I also accompanied and thoroughly enjoyed!

Tutoring Approach:

My pupils tell me that they appreciate my encouraging and thorough tutoring and that they enjoy our sessions. I provide varied lessons, focusing on speaking, reading, writing and listening skills and am flexible in my approach, using my experience to adapt to the pupils' individual needs. I am able to provide clear explanations of German grammar and have a wealth of materials to consolidate all aspects of my teaching.

I gain a great deal of satisfaction from seeing my pupils progress and succeed in their studies and love working on a one to one basis with young people. Please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your needs and I look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Description:
I΄d really describe myself as a responsable person and friendly. I have always liked to teach and when I was studying the university I taught painting and drawing to children in my free time.
I lived with my parents and with my two sisters and i miss them a lot, but I came to england looking for better opportunities for me and I love learn new things every day and a good way for it is teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Spanish for several years. I have always liked teaching children and adults. I work as a nanny sometimes and the parents ask me to speak in Spanish to their children to learn a new language.

In my experience teaching Spanish I have realized that if you feel like learning a new language you can achieve it.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to teach Spanish in a dynamic way is to say that the student asks everything he does not know and I can answer everything, especially when I teach children to whom I must dedicate more attention so that they are more interested in learning the language.

I have different ways to teach and it depend if I am teaching a kids or adults.
