Personal Description:
I'm Italian and I lived, studied and worked in Italy unitl 20 years ago. I work in the linguistic field (Italian /English) in a variety of roles. I have an Italian university degree in Foreign Languages, a Trinity Tesol Certificate and I'm also a qualfied legal interpreter and translator.

I am an experienced private English tutor currently working in the Leiston, Saxmundham and Aldeburgh area of Suffolk, and I am able to tutor students from foundation to post GCSE. I can offer tuition in areas such as: spelling, essay writing, exam preparation, revision techniques and grammar and composition. In addition I can also provide tuition to adult learners and this can range from CVs to general English. I have a strong background in both mainstream and private education settings, and I have worked extensively with students who require additional learning support.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in both mainstream and private schools tutoring one-to-one, small groups and full classes. I have successfully worked with students of all abilities in both English and post 16 vocational subjects. I also have substantial experience in SEN both in small groups and one-to-one. I also have considerable experience of dyslexia and have studied this at postgraduate level. In addition I am able to provide additional services such as visual stress screening.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer tuition on a flexible basis and provide a free consultation to assess the needs and requirements of the student. I will provide a scheme of work and I like to set regular opportunities for parents to discuss their child's progress.

Personal Description:
I am a current A-level Chemistry and Biology examiner and moderator and author of A level Biology exam papers as well as textbooks and workbooks. I have worked in bioscience research and more recently in life science marketing and academic conference management in chemistry and biochemistry. I am a Chartered Chemist, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and committee member of the Protein & Peptide Science Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years' experience in one-to-one teaching, starting with giving undergraduate tutorials at the University of Oxford. I have been offering private tuition in A-level Chemistry and Biology for over 4 years.

I am able to tailor my teaching style to the individual needs of the student and to make best use of online and other electronic resources to help students to an understanding of the subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I start by identifying the particular needs of the student: do they have problems with understanding some or all of the subject; are there any areas of weakness that need to be strengthened; are there issues with exam technique that need to be addressed?

Even well taught students who have a good grasp of the subject can fail to achieve their full potential through poor exam technique. My earlier experience as a Chief Examiner, responsible for setting and marking A level exams, means that I have a detailed knowledge of the exam system and how students need to approach exam papers. My current examining experience has given me an insight into how to help students avoid unnecessary loss of marks by developing clear and rigorous approaches to their answers and to develop strategies to approach individual questions so as to maximise their performance.

Personal Description:
I am a freelance software developer and professional trainer who also provides one-to-one personal tuition services in computing, programming and IT related subjects. I took my first steps in programming as long ago as 1981, and have been a professional software developer since 1987. Along with the teaching and training side of my career, I develop software and web-sites for my clients, and I have been published several times in respected programming-journals.

I am also a BBC preferred-supplier, and am a Professional member of the Association for Computing Machinery (founded in 1947 - the world's largest and most prestigious scientific and educational computing society).

Teaching Experience:

I have provided private-tuition services since 1992, and was a lecturer at Roehampton University from September 1998 to October 1999. I have provided professional training services since 1999, during which time I have delivered over 100 professional courses in programming and software design and development, for companies in the aircraft industry, computer gaming, banking, web development and the BBC.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching and training pivots on the most important factor - passion for one's subject. I attempt to demonstrate to the student the power and beauty of what computing and programming involves, and place a firm emphasis on explaining concepts in the simplest and most day-to-day terms.

In the sphere of private tuition for children and young adults, I have found that working through past exam-papers with the pupil or student is an extremely effective way of helping the individual's understanding and exam performance to improve.

In the sphere of the professional training I provide, clients cite frequently my passion for the subject, the original and clear explanations that I use, and the depth of my technical understanding, as the factors of note in their view of my services.

Personal Description:
I am a certificated Senior Chinese Language Teacher with IPA Certification. I have taught adult individual students as well as children in groups. I have lived in Beijing, Tianjing, Xi'an and Shenzhen and am well travelled throughout the rest of China. It would be a plus to choose me if you are interested in Chinese architecture, gardens, business culture, or different kinds of Chinese food, as well as Chinese calligraphy. I have lived or travelled in many countries in Europe, America, Africa, Asian and Oceania. So, with my international background, I am comfortable with a diverse range of people.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught adult individual students, individual children and children in group. One of my adult student is an university researcher. I have taught him spoken and written Chinese for several years. My children students liked my class very much. Sometime, I taught language together with sports for children.

Currently, I am teaching in a community school in Manchester. My students are 12~13 years old, a group of 24 boys and girls. They like the Chinese language class and asked many questions about Chinese language and culture. Every weekend, I teach a 7-year old girl and her father at the same time. They are learning Mandarin listening and speaking. I really enjoy teaching them all.

Tutoring Approach:

I taught Chinese language in different ways according to my student's needs. I would like to know my student's language aims and time he or she will have to spend before we start to work together. I taught my university researcher student with listening, speaking, reading and writing all together, from begining. For another student, I taught her spoken language through discusing daily life and Chinese cultural topics she was interested in. Sometimes, I taught my children students Chinese language through yoga postures and games, which they liked very much.

Personal Description:
As a professional writer with a range of credits in tv and radio (Eastenders, Holby City, The Bill), I gained experience of working with schools and colleges to develop the literacy skills of learners of all ages. Perhaps uniquely, I am also a fully-qualified Maths teacher equipped with the subject knowledge to teach to A-level. Aside from Maths and English, I occasionally teach guitar and ukelele and play in a couple of local bands. Though there is no escaping hard work, I think learning should be fun. As both a parent and a teacher, I believe you get the best out people (young people included!) if you listen, and try to see the world from their point of view.

Teaching Experience:

I have recent experience of teaching in both state and independent schools, but appreciate not everyone thrives in these environments.

Tutoring Approach:

Without personalised support from a sympathetic expert who can focus on and understand their needs, many young learners find themselves lost or feeling they are not reaching their full potential. As a tutor, I aim to give that support, in a relaxed and fun environment. I aim to identify and overcome any fears that may be blocking progress. Starting from individual interests, enthusiasms and motivations, whilst building on existing skills of which they may not be aware, I aim to develop the confidence and feelings of success that ultimately lead to achievement.
