Personal Description:
A trilingual professional and qualified teacher with 2 MA's degrees in languages and long tutoring and instructing experience. I will help you to understand your work better and expand your knowledge in the subject. My language lessons are carefully planned and tailored especially for individual students according to their level and needs. My students practice the main 4 language skills - reading, speaking, listening and writing. My main objective is to develop skills in order to improve fluency and confidence in dealing with native colleagues and clients.

Teaching Experience:

My skills are based on solid academic experience. I have got around 6 years of tutoring experience and worked with adults, children and professionals.
- Worked alongside leading academics in the field of methodology as an assistant
- Conducted research and analysis
- Organised conferences and assisted in consecutive and liaison interpreting
- Assisted in translation of articles and legislations eg. Polish Labour Code
- Worked internationally as Russian/English and Polish tutor in Poland, UK and Holland therefore I am culturally sensitive and adaptable
- 2 years' experience in working with students and professionals in China (Fujian International Business & Economic College) as TEFL teacher & Foreign Language Expert

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one of my best qualities as a teacher is my ability to inspire confidence in my students so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves regardless their level of ability. Central to my philosophy of teaching is to create stimulating yet non-competitive environment in the classroom. I always feel it is my responsibility to inspire my students to want to achieve their maximum potential. I have strong confidence that a learner can utilise his or her ability to the fullest if he or she has the utmost willingness to do so. As for me, I was fortunate to be introduced to my second languages at a very young age. I discovered that there were several factors that contributed to the level of effectiveness of learning the second language back then.
Having a strong intrinsic motivation to learn the language is crucial, you always need to find ways to develop your language vocabulary, practice correct pronunciation, listening speaking, reading and writing skills. You have to be resourceful -find ways to improve yourself. Spend some time reading foreign newspapers during weekends and make foreign language dictionary your new life partner!

Personal Description:
I have a lifetime of experience in fine art (drawing and painting) as well as in graphic design and photography.
I now practice as a professional artist/painter. I use several mediums, pencil, conte, pastel, watercolour, acrylic and (mostly) oil.
I live in the Surrey Hills and am inspired by the landscape. However I am interested in picture making at all levels in any subject, believing that the subject is merely a reference point to an idea.
Art is largely subjective but is, like music, expressive of emotion, thought, ideas, and self.
I am an award winning artist having won the ArTTable Bronze Frame for my still life in 2015/

Teaching Experience:

Adult Education at Ruxley Lane Centre, Epsom and at Reigate School of Art, Redhill.
Secondary Education at Carshalton High school for Girls.
University/Further Ed. at Hull, Norwich, Epsom, Falmouth, East Surrey College, Norwich and Croydon Colleges of Art.
I tutor as workshops individually in my Buckland studio, or individual tuition at the subjects' homes.
I also visit and tutor in art groups and clubs by request.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in clear demonstration of artistic principles and techniques and by guided practice by students. I am against the traditional style of art tutoring that simply allows the student to work with sometime critical comment 'over the shoulder'.
Art can be taught to a good technical level in the same way as any subject. Whilst everyone has natural ability to a degree, the student can learn to observe and record by training the eye and right brain. Many have no confidence in their ability. My aim is to give knowledge that inspires confidence so that a student may understand image making and learn to develop their own style through understanding of the principles of drawing, composition and creative expression.

Personal Description:
I am originally from Ayrshire but have spent the last eight years south of the border studying and working. I have worked as an actor, singer and songwriter and continue to do so whilst teaching. I have now moved back to Ayrshire to live and work and continue to be creative.

Teaching Experience:

*Co-founder and Director of a theatre company
*Director of Fringe based theatrical work
*Drama workshop leader
*Drama teaching assistant with final year university students
*Trainee college lecturer

Tutoring Approach:

I am very passionate about what i do and have worked with many different people of a variety of ages and backgrounds. I have studied the works of many theatre practitioners whilst in and out of education, ranging from the naturalism of Stanislavski through to the forum theatre of Augusto Boal, to name but a few. However my goal when teaching is to have a "thinking performer" who knows themselves and the character and connects with what they're doing rather than merely "pretending". I'm an approachable person with a strong work ethic and strive to push someone to reach their potential.

Personal Description:
After qualifying as a teacher, following a degree in Psychology at Loughborough University and a P.G.C.E. at Nottingham Trent, I completed my QTS at a small primary school in East Sussex.
In 2004, I moved to Spain to pursue my passion of living and working in a foreign country and I taught in a British school teaching the National Curriculum to a mixture of English and non-English speaking children.
Returning to the UK in 2008, I lived near Kingston-Upon-Thames and worked at Holy Cross Prep. School.
Since leaving a full time teaching job to have children, I have been working as a private tutor.

Teaching Experience:

At Firle C. of E. School I taught a mixed class of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Although challenging, it showed me the importance of teaching to the individual child's needs.
During my 3 years at Holy Cross Prep. School I was a Year 2 class teacher. There was a high level of expectation for the academic achievement of the children. In my final year, an (ISI) inspection was carried out and the school was deemed to be 'outstanding'.
Over the past 4 years, I have tutored a number of children in numeracy and literacy from year 1 to year 6.

Tutoring Approach:

I have found that a balance of structured work and fun, interactive, educational games, all based on a clear learning objective, leads to the best improvement in understanding.
There is no charge for the first lesson as I find this is a good opportunity to meet each other and to learn about the particular areas where the additional support is required.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Christopher, I've taught Science and Maths for over 10 years. At present I am teaching Chemistry at a prestigious North London co-educational school having previously taught at City of London School for Girls. I began tutoring in 2005, after graduating from Oxford University (Worcester College 2001 - 2005), with a Masters in Chemistry. Additionally, I have worked as a Science and Maths teacher on the Government's Life Long Learning Scheme. Professionally I have served as a consultant within the environmental science/engineering sector for a large multinational corporation.

Teaching Experience:

I am a friendly, approachable Oxford educated tutor with over 10 years and 5000 hours tutoring experience, comprising a mix of one-to-one tuition, teaching within small groups as well as larger classroom environments. I have extensive knowledge of all the major examination boards with particular expertise in the OCR, Edexcel, WJEC and AQA syllabuses.

I am currently teaching Chemistry at a top independent North London School, having previously taught both Chemistry and Maths at City of London School for Girls. Earlier experience included working as a Mathematics and Science teacher on the government-funded 'Life Long Learning' Scheme, where certain pupils were affected with learning disabilities such as ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Additionally, I have passed the GAMSAT medical entrance exam required for certain medical schools within the UK, so can assist with the preparation required for this difficult test. I also provide numeracy and literacy tuition for those sitting professional or higher education exams and Armed Forces tests.

Undergraduate tuition is offered to those students studying for degrees that incorporate chemistry modules e.g. Business and Chemistry, foundation courses etc.

I cover Central London zones 1 - 2.

Rates: GCSE and A level: 40 per hour.

GAMSAT: 40 per hour.

I have an extensive list of references from previously satisfied clients for your perusal.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to get the very best out of students using a variety of teaching methods with a strong emphasis on exam technique. I have helped pupils of all ages and abilities both on a one-to-one basis as well as within small groups/large classroom environments.

Every person is different, and every person has his/her own grasping ability whether at home or in school. With this in mind I am very flexible and adaptable in my approach to teaching, and endeavour to create a learning environment where the pupil can thrive.

Personal Description:
An approachable and empathetic manager in my former profession as an IT consultant, I am now a qualified English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher who is able to encourage and motivate people to achieve their goals. I am highly organised and enjoy being creative. I make the most of my advanced IT skills to produce materials to meet the learning needs of my students. I have a lifelong enthusiasm for language, culture and meeting new people from all walks of life, to learn and share experiences.

Teaching Experience:

I achieved my Trinity CertTESOL in January 2015. The certification process included teaching both group and individual lessons for a range of abilities from pre-intermediate to advanced. I was thoroughly stimulated by this course and enjoyed it immensely. I am now capable of going into a classroom and producing a well-thought out, appropriate and stimulating lesson that will help students of English to achieve their linguistic aims. In my former career as an IT consultant I coached, trained and mentored junior staff.

Since certification I have been fortunate to be employed by Language Schools in Winchester and Bath and have taught teenagers in multi- and mono-lingual groups. I have also taught English for Special Purposes with individual adults including Legal English and Business English.

Tutoring Approach:

I see the learning experience as a partnership between the teacher and the learner. I particularly enjoy working with an individual learner as I am able to focus on their personal needs and at our first session I will work with you to determine what you would like and need to achieve and to design a programme tailored just for you. In my Trinity CertTESOL course I was awarded an A grade for the needs analysis assignment.

Personal Description:
I am a second year student at Reading University studying Mathematics, who is active, organised and reliable.

Teaching Experience:

During my two years of sixth form, I was the sole student studying Further Mathematics AS. As such, I had to help my peers from different years with their studies.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is that I must first recognise where the student is having problems, and then to tackle these gaps in their knowledge with my help.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Lauren and I am 23 years old. I am currently undertaking my clinical training as a third year medical student via the Graduate Entry Programme at Imperial College London. Prior to this I read Natural Sciences at University of Cambridge with an interest in a range of biological topics including biology of cells, physiology, pathology and history & ethics of medicine.

I have always been a hardworking and conscientious student but more importantly I have made an effort to adapt and improve my approach to learning to meet the increasing demands that school and university brings. I would love to use my experiences to help other students work towards and achieve their goals, and pass on the studying skills I have found so helpful.

During my time at Cambridge I found the small-group-based supervisions to be the best way to test my own understanding of a topic and a great opportunity to seek answers to questions that had not been raised during class. This is why I believe tutoring is one of the most effective ways for a student to enhance their own education. Furthermore having been a supervisee myself I understand the qualities that are sought in a tutor. The supervisors I most admired were those that were approachable, patient and knowledgeable; qualities I strive to embody in my own tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I have many years of experience providing guidance, support and advice to students over a wide age range both in academic and extra-curricular settings.

During sixth form I was a senior student for the mathematics department tutoring students in year 7-9 at lunchtimes, in particular guiding them through assignments they had been unable to complete in class and taking the time to revisit topics they had found more challenging. I was also elected to be a prefect responsible for overseeing the welfare of a year 9 form throughout the academic year.

Whilst at Cambridge I took part in an e-monitoring scheme where I provided advice and guidance to a sixth form student applying to university from an access-targeted school. I also became a 'college parent' to three students in the year below whom I provided support to in their studies and general advice about university life.

More recently at Imperial I have volunteered with the 'Teddy Bear Hospital Scheme' helping to run interactive and fun workshops at local primary schools to educate children about the importance of health and challenge their fear of doctors. I also continue to help my five younger siblings with their homework and exam preparation, feeling a great sense of pride as I have watched each of them progress from primary to secondary school.

I am very excited to tutor students in the areas of mathematics and science, as well as help with university applications and entrance exams (UKCAT average = 790).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the best approach to tutoring is to work in partnership with the tutee in an environment that we both feel comfortable, ensuring an interactive and engaging session.

The teaching methods used will be adapted to every tutee, catering to the individual differences in learning approaches and pace. These could range from working through practice questions to test a tutee's knowledge, using diagrams to explain difficult concepts, to having an open and two-way discussion about a topic of interest. I would explore these specifics prior to and during the first session so that I could appreciate the needs of the tutee. In later sessions we can review the approach used and make changes if both the tutee and I feel this would be beneficial.

Whether a tutee is looking to understand the basics of topic they are struggling with or wanting to push themselves to excel in areas they are interested in I believe everyone can reach their potential and that is what I set out to do through my tutoring.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language now for some time. I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher with a Merit result.

My students tell me that I am patient, kind and I give lessons on a 1:1 basis to help ensure a focused time is spent.

I have an MSc with Merit and BSc (Hons) degrees so I am fully aware of how studying can be challenging.

Another set of lessons I give are those of homework support, revision planning, exam preparation and assignment writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for many many years and over the past year, I have been focussing especially on TEFL.

My students are mostly adults, some are already in work, some are medics (I am one myself) and some are new to this country.

As a practicing medic I am naturally CRB checked and I take safety very seriously.

Tutoring Approach:

My first approach is to listen to my students' needs and establish where their strong and weak points are.

I then create a lesson plan.

We arrange to meet either at my home or at my students' home - whichever is best.

Personal Description:
I have two main passions: my passion for teaching and my keen interest in Classics. I am currently at the final stage of a joint PhD program in History of Ancient Philosophy between KU Leuven (University of Leuven) and the University of Milan. At both universities, I have had the opportunity to teach Latin Language and Ancient Philosophy. My history made me knowledgeable about Classical Languages and Civilization and an enthusiastic communicator of it to students of different ages.
I attended the 'Liceo Classico', which provides a specific high-school program that strongly focuses on Greek and Latin Languages, Literatures, and Culture, and, more generally, on Humanities. There, I studied the whole history of Greek and Latin literature and I learned to deal with Classical authors in original and to translate even difficult texts.
The desire to deepen into my knowledge of Classical languages and to become a teacher led me to further pursue Classical studies at university. I attended the University of Milan, which is one of the most important universities in Italy and has the biggest Department of Classics. There I developed a solid knowledge in Classical Languages, Literature, Philosophy, and Art. There, I read in original and translated a great amount of texts of the Classical tradition, and learned the methodology for philological research. I gained both my BA's and MA's degrees in Classics scoring 110/110 summa cum laude both times. For my MA thesis, I applied as a Visiting Scholar to the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) where I could perform my research in an eminent Classics Department, taking, amongst others, Professor Martin Bloomer's class on Latin authors.

Teaching Experience:

Alongside my academic career, I continued to pursue my passion for teaching, tutoring high-school and middle-school students in Greek and Latin and in Italian Grammar. Those experiences strengthened my teaching skills and the satisfaction they gave me kept encouraging me in pursuing a teaching career. More specifically, I started to deal with students of different ages and to learn different methodologies of teaching, always in dialogue with older professional teachers. At KU Leuven, I had the chance to teach a seminar on the History of Philosophy for BA Students in the English program. This experience was very challenging and fruitful for deepening my teaching and linguistic skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is not only to provide tutees with knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages and the classical world, but also, and primarily, to support the development of a curious, open and critical mentality, through an actual experience of encounter with the great authors of our tradition. In tutoring, I take the presence of two elements to be essential: on the one hand, a rigorous teaching method, especially if the scope is to learn Latin or Greek grammar, offering a precise and articulate content to students; on the other hand, a constant interaction between the tutor and tutee, calling for the active participation of the tutee and facilitating dialogue and exchanges.
