Personal Description:
I was born and raised in California and came to London to attend university. I recently received a first class degree in International Business from Middlesex University. I also possess a HND in Business Management in which I received a distinction mark. I work well with others and have tutoring experience that I gained previously during my studies. People that I have tutored say that I am a good teacher and I explain things in a simple easy to understand manner. I have helped many students, and can help with coursework assistance, proofreading, examination preparation, and lecture slide revision.

Teaching Experience:

I am great at writing and have excellent grammatical skills. People that I have tutored always do well in their modules and my pupils tell me that I am a good teacher that can clearly explain information. I have business experience and possess plenty of business knowledge that I gained during my studies. I have a soft approach to tutoring, first learning about the individual in order to create a customized lesson plan to suit the specific needs of the individual. I can meet at a time and place convenient to you and will always prepare my lessons in advance to provide you with the best help possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach people in unique ways depending on the individual. For example if English is knew to the student, I have to explain things in a much more individually focused approach. I can show you methods that I guarantee will raise your marks. For example, during my studies, I learned various tips and tricks which helped me gain my first class degree and I would be happy to share them with you. These tips include shortcuts to researching and referencing, and writing tips for those who experience difficulty while completing reports or essays. I can help you structure your assignments in a academic manner that will impress your teachers and can double check your assignments correcting any mistakes.

Personal Description:
I want everyone to enjoy the ability to communicate with each other in English to make friends, do business together and to feel confident wherever English is spoken.
I have been made welcome by so many people from many nationalities all round the world and love the excitement of communicating with people from all walks of life.
I enjoy teaching face to face and online and to tailoring conversation and lessons to the ability and objectives of the student or students.
I am married with a family and am comfortable teaching all ages although I prefer teaching adults and young adults (16 upwards). I teach general English and specialize in teaching business English.
I also proofread and edit dissertations and theses.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in Europe and Asia. For six years I lived in France teaching one to one and small groups. I returned to the United Kingdom in 2012 and live and teach in the Worthing and Brighton area.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning a language should be both fun and serious. If my students are preparing for examinations then a concentration on course work with homework will be important.
If students prefer to develop their social conversational ability then there may be less emphasis on grammar and more on the use of English in everyday social or business situations. Each potential student is asked to complete a simple questionaire to give me a picture of their ability level and what they want to achieve.
I teach one to one or small groups (normally no more than 8 students). Price reductions for two students or more
Most online teaching is on a one to one basis.

Personal Description:
My name is Ellen and I have been teaching for fourteen years. I have a vast amount of interests and hobbies. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the cinema, eating out, theatre, walking, reading, eBay and I also work in a shop part-time too.
I have a clean driving license and I am willing to travel to pupil's houses, or they're welcome to be tutored at mine.
I am hard-working, committed and always eager to learn. I rarely have a day off sick, I just keep going!
I am also a member of a local meet up group, which is based in Chester and North Wales. I often participate in these events, I feel it has allowed me to meet more like-minded people. I'm a land lady on rented property, so I have to be professional and organised. This is when my teaching skills come into place!
I strongly believe you have to live life to the full, and grab every opportunity you can. Life's too short.

Teaching Experience:

I have a vast amount of teaching experience. I have taught in the primary sector, ranging from Nursery up to Year Six.
Within my teaching career, I have been a History and PSHE Co-ordinator, where I was responsible for up-dating the school's policy, ordering resources, monitoring other teachers performance in these subjects and organising educational visits too.
I always ensure children's work is marked daily, with constructive or positive comments on their work. I also think praising the children is important, this is done through reward systems. When in permanent teaching positions, I have always ensured that the environment is bright, colourful, fresh and stimulating. Wall displays, illustrating children's work from a varied ability is important.
I always ensure affective discipline is carried out in the classroom and I always accommodate for each child's needs, differentiating if necessary.
During my teaching career I have organised class assemblies in front of the whole school, ensuring that each child has a piece of reading to be read or an acting role to be carried out, the assemblies often link to their theme they've been learning that particular term.
I always follow the Foundation Curriculum and the National Curriculum in a professional way.
I can work as part of a team and communicate with parents on a professional level. I'm hard-working and always ensure that children are happy and stimulated in their learning environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been tutoring since 2007, however, in 2012 I did take a break. I always ensure my lessons are appropriate for the child's learning, and after a day at school, I always try to make the lessons as stimulating as possible.
Sometimes the tasks may relate to the child's experience, this is done through reading and writing. I also incorporate celebrations and multi-cultural events in the lessons too, I feel this broadens the child's outlook in life.
My lessons incorporate writing, reading and comprehension.
I always give feedback to the child and parents at the end of each lesson. I ensure my lessons are delivered in a professional manner.

Personal Description:
I made a first class in physics, also had a Distinction in my Masters degree in Physics Electronics. I am currently pursuing a PhD degree in Optical Engineering in University of Aberdeen, Scotland. I love Physics and Maths, it's always a privilege that I get to teach it and interact with new people on these subjects.

I am very friendly and approachable. And also love to inspire my students when teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I was a volunteered teacher of GCSE after graduation for a year before becoming a lecturer at the University of Benin, Nigeria in 2009 and taught for four(4) years. In University of Aberdeen, I have been actively involved in demonstration and tutoring of these courses.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I try to understand the strength and ability of my student and know which teaching technique is appropriate. It's also important I establish a solid understanding of the basic concepts and review previous lectures and assignment with the student, thereby increasing his/her confidence. Students need to be actively engaged in their learning so I will always give them more examples, exercises, space and guidance to work out the answer for themselves.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching off and on for 25 years at tertiary and secondary levels. I have had several careers including being a Chartered Surveyor, lecturer, businessman and teacher. I have worked in the Caribbean, South America and Africa apart from the UK. I enjoy travelling, cycling and current affairs.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at tertiary level in all the above regions. Since returning to the UK, 10 years ago, I've been teaching at secondary level in mathematics, business and economics.

I have an easy going manner and approach all subjects in a simplictic and fundamental way. In particular to understand mathematics one needs to understand and know fundamentals and principles. From this learning can be achieved and confidence built to tackle any problem.
I am able to adapt my teaching to specific learning requirements and have experience in teaching foreign students or students whose first language is not English.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Rebecca. I specialise in English language/linguistics and I am keen to tutor/help anyone with their English language skills whether your are a non-native speaker looking to improve your spoken and/or written English, or a native speaker of English looking for help on your national 5 or advanced highers. I have a GCSE and an A-level in English Language in addition to a degree in Linguistics, a Master's in Bilingualism and one and a half year's experience doing a PhD in Linguistics. I am also qualified to A-level in psychology and can teach psychology for GCSE and Advanced Highers. I am also able to tutor those who would like help with data handling in Microsoft Excel and data analysis/statistics using SPSS.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring both one-to-one individual sessions and tutoring groups of 20. I have worked with children from the age of 5 and have tutored adults in their 30's. The children I have worked with comprised children with typical language development and those with atypical language development (specific language impairment, autism and dyslexia). Adults with whom I work are a mixture of native and non-native speakers of English.

I am currently employed by the University of Edinburgh to tutor the tutorials for one of their modules in Linguistics. In addition to my work at the University of Edinburgh I also engage in regular private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important to tailor learning sessions to the needs and abilities of the student. Our current school system is still based on the traditions established during the Victorian times which maintains that groups (classes) of children will receive the same teaching, ignoring the abilities and personal needs of the individual children who make up that class. This is what is known as a 'one glove fits all' approach. I believe in catering teaching to the student's needs and abilities and to engage students at all levels. I also do not believe that teaching should be a static process, whereby students just listen to a teacher talking. It is important for students to think for themselves, to use the skills they have learnt in order to solve new challenges. It is important to keep students engaged. Learning should be fun and we can make this possible by presenting students with interactive exercises that are both fun and challenging. A successful tutoring session should leave a student feeling excited, reflective and overall hungry to learn more.
