Personal Description:
I am a French native, qualified language teacher working as a Head of Department in a reputable independent school in Moor Park. I have a genuine enthusiasm for languages and for language education as I have had experience of teaching French in various contexts and countries.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught across Key Stages 2, 3, 4, 5 within several secondary schools in London. I also have the opportunity to teach pupils with Special Educational Needs as well as gifted ones and I am therefore aware of their need for differentiation through support and extension activities provided when delivering lessons.
Finally, I teach French to adults and I believe that helping them to learn my language is extremely rewarding, whether they are great beginners or fluent speakers.

Tutoring Approach:

I have specialised in one-to-one support and exam preparation (A-levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance, 13+ etc.) with tailored programmes to meet the individual needs as well as a creative teaching style. In my teaching, I always transfer to my students my own enthusiasm for languages and try to enhance their motivation and enjoyment of language learning. I set my students high standards for work and have received positive feedback from pupils and peers.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£35 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am only taking on a small number of students this year. My skill set is best suited to students who are not reaching their optimal potential because of emotional stresses at home or school, or because the teaching is inadequate at school

My background in counselling helps me build rapport and bring out the best in students who have had emotional problems at school.

I am concerned with education of the whole person, rather than cramming in knowledge just to get through that exam.

I have experience of teaching both in schools, colleges and universities and bring a depth of understanding to my work with people from nine to ninety.

I have four grown up children.

I have worked in 3 of the four top universities in the UK. I am involved in educational projects in a number of schools.

Teaching Experience:

BA Hons. PGCE 1974. I have taught in primary and secondary schools, as well as sixth form colleges and universities, including Oxford and the London School of Economics.. I have also taught in private schools and been a director of a school of counselling and psychotherapy. I have taught psychology at Abingdon and Witney College, and poetry in many Oxfordshire Schools. I teach poetry short courses for Oxford University at the Ashmolean museum. I teach both GCSE and IGCSE courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always do my best to help a student improve their exam performance, using my wide knowledge of psychology and counselling/coaching skills, as well as my subject knowledge. I most enjoy working with students who want to gain a deeper understanding of their subjects that will be of use to them in their real lives, rather than just to get through an exam. I am very good at building a rapport with students, and finding a way to bring the best out of their skill set.

Personal Description:
I live in Cheshire and have two children. I enjoy camping, the outdoors & the countryside in general. We like to travel around the UK, especially Scotland & Southern Ireland. I have enjoyed being successful professionally & in my academic career & I am always looking for new opportunities to make the best use of the skills I've developed over the years. I enjoy working out and train most days. I have an interest in numismatics (coins and paper money).

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Further & Higher education for the past 22 years & I am Head of Subject & Senior Lecturer at a College with Beacon status in the North West. My results are 10% above national benchmark & I am an examiner with a leading examination board. Last year, I carried out some regular private tuition & was able to turn E grades into A grades at A2 level. This was very satisfying for me & the student concerned was able to go on & take a degree in Law, something he wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. I have been specialising in online teaching since 2009 and have been supporting A level, Undergraduate and Ph.D students in order to maximise their academic potential and their summative grades. Don't wait until September to contact me, get ahead now.............Julian

Tutoring Approach:

I like to treat every student as an individual & seek to respond to their individual learning needs. I offer a very reliable, high standard of service & see us as working together to achieve a common objective, that of success in the summative examinations. Being an examiner for sociology is also a real advantage for my tutees too. More recently, I have been working with Nelson Thornes and AQA to provide 50 online Sociology learning resources for publication in support of their new A2 student book. I now also offer online tuition via Skype voice and video call at a discounted hourly rate for block bookings, hence the £25 rate.

Personal Description:
For 25 years of work in education I've gained rich experience which I want to share with those who need my guidance and assistance. As a participant of professional exchange programs, member of Educators' organizations, volunteer in international projects I have studied new teaching methods and use them at my lessons combining the most advanced pedagogical ideas with the best achievements of traditional education.

Teaching Experience:

Work as a Teacher at schools, University, Education centre since 1991

Gave lessons in English language for junior and senior students
Conducted classes of the English language courses
Tutor in English and Russian for the group of students and individuals
Participation in international exchange programs for Language Teachers

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching has always been my passion and perhaps, my life mission.
I like to work with groups of students in the classroom. But tutoring has more advantages for individual approach to each student, and consequently, higher results in studying any subject. I try to tailor my lessons in accordance with everyone's abilities, priorities, interests and tastes.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a friendly and qualified 1-to-1 tutor with lots of experience, living in South East London.

I've lived and worked in Spain on three separate occasions: I find its culture, history and languages fascinating.

I also teach English as a foreign language, and you couldn't be in a better city to learn English - London is fantastic! Welcome!

Teaching Experience:

I did a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages at Exeter University in 2007, and a CELTA (TEFL) at St Giles College, Brighton in 2005. Since then I've been teaching on and off in the UK and Spain, and completing my Masters degree in Spanish Translation.

I have taught Young Learners of 5+ years, through teenagers and up to adults - the majority of my experience is with teenagers.

My 1-1 students have all passed their GCSE, AS and A2 level exams with B's, A's and A*'s. Moreover, we have built good relationships together and learnt from each other along the way. References can be supplied if you wish.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a creative person, spontaneous yet thoughtful, and I like to tailor my approach on an individual basis. I try to keep my lessons a fair mix of listening, speaking, reading and writing practice though, all with good momentum and interest levels. You tell me what interests you - from One Direction to global warming! - and we'll incorporate it into activities so that you are more engaged with your learning.

My speciality is grammar; helping you overcome any grammar-related fears in foreign languages, to get you confident about your own ability to comprehend how language works and start manipulating it yourself.

I can travel to you, for a slightly higher hourly fee, or you can come to my house. In any case, I look forward to hearing from and working with you!

Personal Description:
I am an élite tutor with a double first class MA (Cantab) from the University of Cambridge, specialising in teaching language to learners of all ages. This includes English, Drama, Spanish, Arabic, French and Linguistics.

At a glance:

- Five years' tuition experience.

- First Class degree from University of Cambridge, MA (Cantab).

- Winner of the Bailey Prize and the Dajani Prize for my dissertation and overall degree at Queens' College, Cambridge.

- Winner of the Lerverhulme Trust and D'Oyly Carte Scholarships at Guildhall School; finalist in the National Theatre's Michael Bryant Verse Speaking Award, and the BBC Carlton Hobbs Radio Award.

- Distinction in Advanced Extension Awards in both Spanish and French

Teaching Experience:

I teach English literature and linguistics to all levels, and English language skills both to native speakers and second language learners wishing to finesse their writing and speaking to a level of professional excellence.

I have had great success teaching Spanish, Arabic and French as foreign languages, including to students who had previously struggled with the subjects. I have a 100% success rate in preparing applicants for Oxford and Cambridge.

As a professional actor working on stage and screen, with an MA from the internationally-renowned Guildhall School of Music and Drama, I also enjoy teaching drama and offer mentoring to drama school applicants.

Aside from five years' varied tuition experience (with impeccable references), I have also taught workshops on drama, Shakespeare and improvised comedy in universities and high schools in Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland and the United States

Tutoring Approach:

Despite high demand for my services, I insist on operating a select client list. This enables me to devote the utmost time and care to what I am passionate about: bringing out the best in those I teach.

My method of working is tailored personally and specifically to each individual tutee, their way of learning, and their goals. I pride myself on the relationships I have with my students, who have ranged from adults learning new languages for personal reasons, to primary school children in need of general help with schoolwork. Only by being friendly and engaging but also challenging and determined can I help them fulfil their potential.

Personal Description:
I am 59 years old and retired from full time teaching in August 2014 after a teaching career of some 23 years. From September 2014 I have taught on a part time basis at Oldham Sixth Forn College. I am married with 3 children and live in the Chorley area. I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 1979 with a degree in Construction Management and spent the first 12 years of my working life in the construction industry. I began teaching at Stockport College in 1991 and gained a P.G.C.E. in Secondary Maths shortly afterwards, I started at Oldham Sixth Form College in May 2003.

Teaching Experience:

I taught at Stockport College for 11 years and have just retired from Oldham Sixth Form College after almost 13 years there. I have taught a broad range of maths courses during that time and was course leader for level 2 maths at O.S.F.C. for 8 years before my semi-retirement. I have taught G.C.S.E maths for many years and have considerable experience teaching C1, C2 C3, C4 S1, S2 and D1 as part of A' level mathematics. I am familiar with both the Edexcel and AQA Gcse and A level specifications.
I have been an examiner for AQA at G.C.S.E. and am currently an examiner for The Cambridge Board marking the IGCSE and also for Edexcel marking C1 and C3, I have therefore lots of exam board experience and have many tips for maximising marks to pass on.
For students starting A level maths I have lots of bridging resources to enable students to make a seamless transition to advanced level study.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on my friendly and personable approach to tutoring endeavouring to remove the impression that maths is too hard that has grown up in the media in recent times. References are available from my past and current students.

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 native Greek speaker, having been born and raised in Greece. I had an inclination and passion towards foreign languages from a young age, which resulted into my learning English and French as a primary and secondary school student and Japanese and a little Korean as a high school and university student. I have a BA in English Language and Literature from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece and I am currently studying for my MSc in Comparative Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I also hold several foreign language certificates.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously worked as a tutor of English as a Foreign Language (EFL), teaching mostly primary and secondary school children as well as preparing adults for English language exams and certificates. I have also taught Greek to foreigners and elementary Japanese.

Tutoring Approach:

I always tailor my lessons according to my students' needs, strengths and weaknesses. I like using textbooks as a base for my teaching but multimedia and extra material is an integral part of my lessons, since they not only enhance the learning experience but they also keep the learners' interest intact and help them attain some original contact with their target language.

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 dedicated and motivated student who has the passion and enthusiasm of working with children. I am fluent in 3 languages which include English, Hindi and Punjabi. I enjoy travelling and appreciating different cultures and learning new languages. I also enjoy reading in my spare time and in particular enjoyed reading Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman as it touches on current issues such as racism and prejudice. I am caring, compassionate, patient and hard-working which are some of my many qualities that children require in their tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have currently completed my first year at Birmingham City University studying BA (HONS) PRIMARY EDUCATION WITH QTS. I am also currently an activities co-ordinator at Kids Adventure society which is a charity that provides children from disadvantaged backgrounds to take part in different activities such as swimming or going to the cinema, which they never get the opportunity to do so. As an activities co-ordinator, I organise and book fun activities for the children.

I used to work as a supervisor at Kumon where I worked one to one with children aged 3-11 and supported them and provided guidance in Maths and English. I was also in charge of observing and reporting children's progress in their record books and marking their worksheets. I also worked as a Swimming instructor where I prepared lesson plans and delivered effective swimming lessons in order to meet children's needs and abilities. I also motivated and inspired children to become confident and independent swimmers and provided confidence to children who have a genuine fear of water. I also used to be a young leader at Rainbows, Girl-Guiding where I lead different activities and games for girls aged 5-7 and accompanied the Rainbows on trips such as Pantomimes and camps. Lastly, I volunteered at my local primary school in Year 2 where I got the opportunity to listen to children read but also reading stories to them. I also provided extra support for children with Down Syndrome and Autism.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important as a tutor to get to know my student as an individual and their personality and interests as this shows the student that I am interested in what they have to say which therefore allows them to open to me more and trust me. I am also aware that every child has a different learning style and a preferred method of teaching which is why I as a tutor would adapt my teaching so that I can tailor my lesson to their needs. I will also make sure that my lessons are interactive as well as educational as I am aware children tend to get bored easily and lose their attention if they are not understanding the content.
