Personal Description:
3 years ago, UK postgraduate study enhanced my skills in both English and Chinese. I've been a professional translator and Mandarin teacher for years, so I'm very confident to be a private tutor and make sure you will reach your goal : )

I'm based in London and working as a translator/project manager. In my spare time (weekends/public holidays), I'm very glad to help those foreign friends with their Mandarin.

Please contact me if any needs/questions.

Teaching Experience:

In 2009, I taught English to preschool students in China. I learned a lot from it, how to communicate with my students, how to achieve their aims and how to deal with their difficulties.

In 2010, I taught two adult foreigners Mandarin Chinese at home via msn and emails. Although they were in the same age group, they had different needs, so I varied my teaching approach. One preferred to learn Chinese culture, so I taught him the history of Chinese festivals and general grammar; the other wanted to learn everyday expressions, so I taught him day-to-day language in terms of various circumstances, such as useful phrases in greetings, at the store, at the restaurant, at the airport and travelling etc.

Last year, I gave one-to-one Mandarin Chinese courses which are specially designed for the students particular needs.

We can have a discussion about your goal first, then we will arrange the time slot for your own course.

Please kindly note that my lessons are only available on weekends and the whole weekdays from 17th Dec. - 21st Dec. 2012

Let's speak Mandarin!!

Tutoring Approach:

First, I need to know my tutees' aims for learning Chinese (e.g. for travelling to China or for personal interests, etc.) so that I can design a way of studying for you that can make the process of learning more effective and interesting.

secondly, I will combine formal teaching content (pinyin, grammar, characters) with interesting informal teaching approaches (learning words and phrases from songs/movies or going to a Chinese restaurant to learn the names of dishes).

You will have fun learning Chinese!

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and passionate graduate from Oxford University with a love for languages. Having achieved a first class degree in French and Linguistics, I am keen to pass on my knowledge and love of language and literature to other students. I completed a research Masters in West African French literature, and am currently pursuing my studies in the second year of my doctorate whilst also developing my teaching experience. I hold a TEFL qualification and have taught a wide range of students in France, Brazil and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL teaching:
- Beginner and Intermediate classes at International House London as part of training. Highly commended.
- Part of a student-led initiative in Oxford to teach English to low wage workers. We organised evening classes for international adult students of multiple levels of proficiency.
- Teaching experience in Wizard and ERTE schools in Bahia, Brazil.
- Private tutoring for GCSE student as well as adults learning French.
- English tandem learning with advanced adult learner from China: conversational and written English.

British council:
- English teacher for 11-16 year olds in Laval, France in 2009-10. Planned and delivered English lessons focussed on speaking and listening, current affairs, and reading skills.

Warwick University:
- Teaching first and second year students in French language and literature as part of my PhD.

Primary school:
- Teaching assistant 2006-7 in Garden House School, London. Prepared and assisted lessons for year 1 pupils, as well as organising timetables and caring for students. Involved some special needs assistance.

Youth work:
- Worked as part of two youth work teams over 3 years to organise activities and teach teenagers aged 15-19.

Mentoring:
- Reading programmes with younger students struggling with English language.
- Advised and assisted GCSE and A-level students in preparation for exams and applying for higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

Depending on the individual needs of each student, I will prepare a range of tasks to build confidence in specific areas of weakness. From past experience, a lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers to learning, so in all cases I seek to reassure a student of existing strengths and abilities before and during our tuition. More generally, we will develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through different activities to strengthen and accelerate ongoing language learning. Where appropriate/desired, I will bring in relevant texts and materials to develop broader reading building up analytical and critical skills. Grammar work will always feature, though in well-balanced chunks which aim to be accessible AND enjoyable!

Most importantly, I hope to inspire students of any level to relish and enjoy their studies, and to yearn for a more solid grasp of their subject and a higher proficiency in each area of language learning.

Personal Description:
I've been living in England for over 15 years, most of them in a tranquil town of Bradford on Avon. I'm a keen reader and chair a reading group. I have two extremely bright and boisterous boys, both of them completely bilingual, talking, reading and writing in both languages from an early age. I find that teaching comes very natural to me however I use all the latest techniques recommended by teaching authorities.

Teaching Experience:

For the last three years I've been contracted to teach Russian Language for MoD, which means that sometimes I can be extremely busy but most of the time I still have sessions available.
I am working towards teaching qualification (Cert Ed leading to Diploma in Education)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in using different ways of teaching and learning approaches (VAK). I recognize the necessity of inclusion, equality and diversity, to approach the learners differently according to their needs. During my PTLLS course I learnt how to plan my lessons using scheme of work and lesson plan. Writing lesson plan was particularly useful as it helped me to break it down into parts in order to monitor progress and plan the lesson better time-wise I also like to use different resources, including e-learning as well as textbooks, spreadsheets and printouts. I make sure that my lessons are interesting and relevant.
As a part of a course, I teach Russian Grammar and we do plenty of dialogues, free writing, read Russian literature and poetry, listen and watch Russian news.

I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is as follows.

As for Maths and science related subjects, at the outset I will go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students through taking the initiative on specific and more challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are motivated and encouraged to constantly self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

As for German and Chinese, I strive to make the lesson as interactive as I can. I am experienced in teaching beginners as well as students that have learnt the language for a number of years.

I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

Personal Description:
Hello there!
I am a Mothertongue Italian teacher and actor. I have studied Linguistics and taught English and Spanish in Rome and Italian in the UK. I've also acted for many years on stage & cinema. Acting and teaching are surely what I enjoy the most in life.

I have always been very satisfied at the general success of my students, that's probably because I am quite empathic and I always chose my teaching method basing it on my student's personality and will-to-learn.

Personal Description:
I have 30 years teaching experience both in the UK and overseas. I feel it's important to understand a students learning style and adjust lesson materials to suit that style whilst setting purposeful, realistic and attainable goals.

I enjoy teaching and deem it a privilege to have a share in helping others reach their aspirations.

Teaching Experience:

Between 1992 & 2010 I lived and taught in Hong Kong to a variety of students from Chinese medium of instruction (CMI), English medium of instruction (EMI) and International schools to help them develop the four English language skills. Assistance was given to help students progress towards their HKCEE (GCSE equivalent)and `A` levels, and in recent years the IB diploma, IGCSE's, and HKDSE.

Topics used in the lessons cover many of disciplines in the school curriculum, including, History, Geography, Economics, Biology, English Literature. Further guidance was given to help students prepare for exams, such as, Cambridge`s KET and PET; the SAT; and IELTS exams and common apps for HE.

In the past six years I have been tutoring students in the UK to prepare them for the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams; teaching students at KS3, GCSE and A levels. Additionally, I am currently helping students with their dissertations for their chosen degrees, and proofreading BA, MA, and PHD papers prior to submission.

Furthermore, for the past two years, I have been involved in intervention teaching, which involves identifying learning styles and other factors that inhibit a student`s progress, and then devise strategies to engage the student in learning, to identify and then support their current learning needs.

I have a Trinity CERTTesol and a MA in English Language Teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a CLIL approach to teaching, which means I teach English using the content and language taken from the student`s curriculum. My experience also qualifies me to teach English literature, History, biology and geography to GCSE level.

I am committed to providing students with assistance to achieve the grades they need by patiently tutoring each student according to their learning style. I trust that my student-centred approach is effective in this area. My one-to-one tuition produces noticeable improvements in student confidence, attainment and ambition.

Personal Description:
A full-time Maths and Physics tutor, methodical graduate of Oxford University and sensitive musician. Pleased to meet you.

I am an experienced and well-organised tutor of Physics, Maths and Astronomy with tremendous love for science and art. There is little else I find as gratifying like an engaging tutoring session with a mind striving to understand the world and the laws that govern it. Teaching has been the reason I chose to study for a Physics degree all along, and I am now very confident on my grasp of the subject. I can help you ace your exams, improve your grades or simply discover the Universe.

My background is a little exotic, as I used to compete internationally at Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics competitions. A science athlete, if you will. This has put me in contact with brilliant minds and ideas and have built a reputation of excellence and imagination. I take my culture seriously, and I am an avid consumer of literature, cinema and music.

I'm also very passionate about songwriting and I am currently studying melodic modes and chord theory. I still feel I have a lot to learn, but I am fascinated by the way certain harmonies trigger very particular emotions in the human brain. It's a mystery I would love to crack. I also offer tutoring in music technology and instrument techniques, as this is my favorite past time activity, but don't be fooled by my artistic side. Music is built on a foundation of advanced symmetry and mathematics, and this perhaps justifies part of my fascination for it.

So should you want to learn about the universal laws, exercise your logic, get help with homework or train to apply to university, I will be more than happy to accommodate you.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously taught at my high-school as a substitute teacher for excellence groups. I also did private tutoring for people wanting to pass their Baccalaureate exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I love to work with curious minds, but years of practice taught me to apply myself to all kinds of people and students, as everyone learns differently. I am very patient and attentive, and you will find that gaining solid understanding can happen in a relaxed manner as well. My approach is to shift between grinding a particular subject and returning to the bigger picture, as I find all knowledge is connected and proficiency is rarely the sum of its parts. I also try to be aware of my students biggest gaps and hurdles and not move on until they start feeling comfortable with the newly acquired perspective. I believe I am very resourceful when it comes to re-arranging an explanation or finding a different analogy that can illuminate a missing link and consolidate understanding. Albert Einstein was dead right when he stated, in regards to teaching, that "If you can`t explain it to a six year old, you don`t understand it yourself".
