Personal Description:
I have just returned from a year as a Graduate music tutor at Wanganui Collegiate School, New Zealand. Before this, I graduated from the University of Oxford in June 2010, having studied Music at Oriel College under the tutorship of Dr. David Maw. I was educated as a music scholar at Eton College, Windsor before moving to the Perse School, Cambridge for sixth form study. Aside of a huge passion and enthusiasm for music study and tuition, I am an avid sportsman having represented both my university and county youth level in cricket. I also played a number of sports for my college during my time at Oriel. Currently, I am studying for a Masters in Musicology at Durham University with a specialism in the orchestral music of Gerald Finzi. In addition, I am also the Senior Organ Scholar at St. John's College. I have recently accepted a teaching post at Brighton College to begin in September 2012.

Teaching Experience:

Having just returned from a year as a graduate music tutor at Wanganui Collegiate School in New Zealand, I feel that I am in touch with both school teaching and more specifically, more private music tuition. During my year experience in New Zealand, I engaged very actively in the life of the music department. I have experience of basic music tuition with teaching of introductory concepts in the subject such as basic notation, theory, instrumentation and historical issues.
Further up the age spectrum, I have taught specific a level modules in a seminar type situation. With a completed Undergraduate Music degree from the University of Oxford, I have an extensive knowledge of theory, analysis, music history and specific tutoring skills in the study of the clarinet, piano and bassoon. I have taught music theory, clarinet and piano privately for 4 years.
This said, I am very happy to tutor at all levels, aiming to pass on my keen enthusiasm in the subject onto other keen and ambitious musicians whether they be starting out in the subject, or looking for extra assistance at A level and/or degree level. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is designed to generate as much active involvement by the student as possible. Tutoring time is balanced according to the needs of the client between examination coaching (handwriting, mnemonic techniques, time/mark allocation discipline, revision styles) and subject content (probing and consolidating background knowledge, instilling enthusiasm, analysing key aspects of each topic).

In addition, I believe in addressing the needs of each child individually and working with them to help them understand how to work through a problem for themselves. Confidence is often the key and I am keen to work with them to improve the confidence in their own abilities in a varied and fun atmosphere.

Teaching Experience:

The last 8 years I have been girls and boys in Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry with exam achievements far exceeding expectations.
I previously worked for BT and was involved in training engineers and managers in utilisation of management information.

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:
Hello, I am in my forties and I live in Worthing. I specialise in teaching English as a foreign language. I welcome teaching both individuals and small groups with everyday, educational or business English.

I enjoy travelling, meeting new people and learning about other countries. I have just returned from teaching English in Japan for four years, which I loved.

I also have experience working in both education and business in the UK. I was a primary school teacher for eight years and worked in insurance for 11 years.

Teaching Experience:

-I taught Keys Stage 1 and 2 for eight years in an East London primary school. The majority of which did not speak English regularly at home.
-I carried out training on technical insurance issues as part of my job with the insurance company.
-I taught English in two of Japan's well known English conversation schools (ECC and AEON). I worked with students ages ranging from 18 months to 70+ at all levels from beginner to advanced. I also did some work in a few Japanese kindergartens and some summer relief work in a local Worthing language school (CES).

Tutoring Approach:

I like lessons to be fun and the students to feel relaxed. The needs of the students comes first as everyone is different.

After an initial assessment ,I agree with the tutee a lesson progress plan. The lessons will have a clear goal and will relate to real life wherever possible.

Please note that all lessons with children should be at their home with a responsible adult present or available.

Personal Description:
Hello there, I am Tina. I am a native mandarin speaker from China and have over 3 years teaching experience.

I was awarded `Outstanding Trainee of 2012 Confucius Institute Chinese Teacher training`.

My aim is to give fun, effective and personally tailored mandarin lessons to my students.

**For children, We are learning while playing games, singing, drawing and doing different sorts of activities. We make simple Chinese food, taste it and say it. We make our unique decorations, sing songs and dance around. We trace & write Chinese characters, hang them around the house. We have lots of fun while we progress in our mandarin learning.

**For GCSE or A-level students, We not only master the textbooks(listening, speaking, reading and writing), we also explore the beautiful eastern culture, study authentic Chinese stories and make our own stories. We practise past papers and make sure the preparation is done thoroughly and well. Meanwhile, we always have fun.

**For adult students, I tailor my tutoring to their individual needs and requirements,
+ looking to impressing your Chinese girlfriend's family;
+ making Chinese friends;
+ building a rapport with your Chinese business partners;
+ having a holiday in China;
+ studying or working there,
We will find the best way for you to learn. I encourage my adult students communicate with the language they have learnt and help them build up their confidence. We do lots of role-play based on real life situations. My students learn to talk confidently and build up their vocabulary steadily on the way.


Tips:
1. For travelling to China, you should learn travelling topics as well as daily small talks, which will helps you have a easier trip and make friends on your unforgeable journey. ++Numbers is the No.1 thing to learn.++
2. For making friends or impressing someone, don't forget to learn a couple of Chinese songs, which will definitely earn their favour. We have Karaoke at every corner of China.
3. For exam participants, practising past papers is a short-cut to your success.
4. For Mums, Children before aged 13, they have an area in their brain which help them learn languages as mother tongue and they don't translate the language, while after 13, that area will close and it becomes a lot harder to learn foreign languages.
5. Learning languages never be effortless, however, it can be easy and enjoyable if you find the right way.

I am available on Monday to Thursday daytime and some evenings; but my available time is changing, please don`t hesitate to drop me a line if you are interested in learning Mandarin. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Personal Description:
I am a native Greek speaker, born and bred in Athens. I am also fluent in English and have lived in England for 13 years.



I am keeping in close touch with Greece and the Greek language, which allows me to maintain my fluency, accent and knowledge of the country and the culture.

Teaching Experience:

I am an English teacher by profession and taught Greek students in language schools in Athens for fifteen years.

My students attained excellent examination results throughout my career from junior to advanced levels.

I also held private tuition throughout this period.



Since coming to England, I have taught Greek privately to English speakers who were interested in acquiring knowledge of the Greek language for various purposes such as holidays, purchasing property in Greece (holiday homes and permanent residence) and people who wanted to enter themselves into the Greek GCSE exams.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all, I am a sensitive listener.

I am patient with excellent skills in conveying my knowledge to my students. Focusing on helping students to feel confident with the various aspects of the language without judging them.



Finally, I firmly believe that practice makes perfect, which is also my most significant approach to teaching.



I believe it is important that lessons are interactive and fun. The lessons are customised to the student according to their personal needs, following an initial friendly telephone discussion.

Personal Description:
I am a university student currently studying at the university of St Andrews for a Honours program in Zoology. I am a native French speaker ( I actually am French) and was awarded the distinction of best French A-level results in East Africa in 2011, with a score of 499/500. I performed well both at IGCSE'S and A-levels ( IGCSE 6 A*'s and 4 A's, geography, Chemistry and Biology were among the A*'s, and are the subjects I took at A level, in which I achieved A* AA in the same order).
Last year, after a long and complicated admission process, I was offered a place to go study at Oxford University, but unfortunately had to decline it due to financial hardship.
I have lived in Kenya for now 7 years, and have a genuine interest in animal behaviour and conservation.

Teaching Experience:

I do not have much experience when it comes to teaching to be perfectly honest, although I often volunteered to be a student helper for those who had difficulties with certains subjects in my whole school. I am very familiar with the A-level syllabus by CIE, and the exam techniques required at this particular exam board.
I can offer advice and assistance with university application process too, as I was tutored to match Oxford requirements in terms of personal statements and interviews, I can also give you some tips about the Oxford interview processes.

Tutoring Approach:

I will first ask the person to tell me by email what their difficulties are, and what they would like us to go through together so that I can get together the information and any details necessary before meeting and discussing it. I am fairly flexible, everyone learns in a different manner and I will try my best to match my tutoring to the person's learning habits.

Personal Description:
I'm a professional actor/voice over artist with a BA in Journalism and MA in Acting.
I was born in Russia and have lived and trained in London for over 10 years.

Acting: I have trained to be a professional actress at a nationally accredited drama school Drama Studio London and have worked as an actor and voice over artist since graduating in 2011.

Russian Language: I am bilingual: native Russian speaker with native level of English

Teaching Experience:

I'm just starting out as a tutor.
Acting: I have trained a few students how to present better (in a corporate environment), and have constantly felt I could teach really well. I'm a good actor with clear understanding what demands drama schools have, which drama schools focus on what. I'd be an excellent tutor for aspiring actors.
Language: I've given a range of private English lessons to foreign speakers, and thought I might as well teach Russian too. I have a BA (NARIC approved, local MA) in Journalism from The State St.-Petersburg University, one of the best universities in the country. I have worked as a radio presenter and print journalist for a range of Russian media, including Marie Claire, Elle, Empire, Rolling Stone.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very attentive and involved with my students.
Acting: This is very sensitive type of art. There is a lot of psychology involved in performing. I will not only help with preparing a speech for drama school auditions (speech clarity, projection, tension release, delivery) but also share a few tips on how to develop your acting skills.
Russian Language: I will be able to help only students who have already had certain level of Russian language training. I will help to understand how the language works, what Russian mentality is like, work on pronunciation, sentence structure, etc. I can not, I'm afraid, help beginners.

Teaching Experience:

I specialize in individual, one-on-one tutoring - a customized approach based on each student's need, personality and learning style. That means with every session received my full and undivided attention will be given to guide and monitor progress and to give feedback every step of the way. With targeted, personalized attention, each student can negotiate challenges, master skills, and gain confidence. And a student's belief in their capacity to succeed is so often the key to improved results.

Personal Description:
I am an Engineering/Energy Professional living in Aberdeen City. I have been in Aberdeen since 2008, originally was in for a masters' degree in Energy Futures (Oil & Gas Engineering). I have an excellent understanding of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry which are at the core of my undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and I still use today. I am a calm individual who understands that everyone is unique with different speed of comprehension and always try to find out the sparks in individuals. I enjoy teaching Mathematics to all levels, especially the young minds because I believe practicing, solving and understanding mathematics sharpens the brain in understanding and quickly solving other problems in life as they grow. I have over 5 years of experience; covering teaching in private homes of families, friends, acquaintances, and tutorial lessons/coaching centres. I have undertaken teaching secondary school students and a few 1st year undergraduate students. My approach in tutoring/teaching is to seek favourable environment best suited to students' level of assimilation and progress this through the length of time against a log and when there are difficulties propose alternatives to achieving the goal of understanding and mastering problem solving skills.

Personal Description:
I am an ex primary teacher who is now retired from teaching in schools, but with a wealth of experience. Currently, I work part time as a Pilates teacher and also offer private tuition. I love working with children and teens and feel I have much to offer your child as a private tutor. Over the years, I have tutored many children and young adults on an individual basis, with excellent results. I am a mother and grandmother, plus have worked in a voluntary capacity with young people in the Guides, Sunday Schools and running youth clubs.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified threshold three Primary School Teacher and have taught as a private tutor for over five years. My experience includes around twenty years of school teaching, mainly as a classroom teacher in years 3 and 4. I also taught throughout school from Reception to Year 5. As a family, we have hosted and taught language students. A recent experience was to coach a re-sit for the Australian Citizenship examination, which my student passed.
Other experience includes volunteering with Adult Literacy projects plus teaching expressive movement/dance and recorders in school clubs.
I worked for a year as a Special Needs Teacher at at local public school, where I taught small groups and individuals with good results. Recently, I volunteered for a year in a primary school, assisiting with Year One and Year Two language work such as phonics and reading.

Tutoring Approach:

We all learn best in a friendly, supportive atmosphere, which I feel I provide. I am creative in my approach to learning, but also am traditional regarding the building bricks, such as times tables, punctuation and grammar.
I would hope to support your child in overcoming obstacles regarding any gaps in their learning, to give encouragement and install confidence. Due to my long teaching experience, I can usually spot concerns quickly, targeting them to make learning time within the hour efficient.
If your family is time pressed, I may be able to support your child with their homework, depending on the work given.
My current availability is in Seaford on Tuesdays between 3.45pm and 6.00pm.
