I can travel easily to areas within London W, HA, UB, SL, KT, HP, WD, TW, SW, NW, HA etc
Although I am not a native French person I am a trainee French teacher and am a fluent speaker over the last 20 years, I understand that some people require a native speaker but not everyone can teach and I can prove my ability through my numerous high achievers and results. I am an excellent teacher and all my students grades get up to A* when they take my advise.

I am doing a PGCE in Teaching French in secondary schools and will complete in June 2017. I tailor my lessons via different types of presentations to suit the individual learner from my laptop and I am familiar with all exam boards including AQA, OCR, WJEC, Edexcel and Eduqas (new GCSE exam-board) etc. I also use a range of textbooks depending on the students requirements. I can also provide references before tutoring commences.

I have been teaching Adults for the past 6 years and Children for the last 6 years. I have lived in Paris for 5 yrs and whilst studying for my Degree this played an important part into the French culture and customs.

Teaching Experience:

My students include those from Merchents Taylors, Brunel University, St John Fisher Primary School Oxford University and Eaton College to name but a few. I can certainly move you at least two grades up to the A* if that is what your student requires.
I have been teaching French for the last 7 years to children from the ages of 3 yrs to 65 yrs within a group environment Reception, Primary, GCSE, AS ans A2 levels, Degree and Adults. Fun French using music, games,activity sheets.
All lesson plans are tailored to suit individuals or groups from beginners to advanced levels using a 12 week structured lesson plan progressing to the desired level that the individual requires.
Homework only if requested for adults and children.

Tutoring Approach:

It is now compulsory in all Primary schools in England for children to take up another language like French, so get ahead of the rush and get your child ready for the changes which will be implemented next year.
I have a very flexible approach and use phonetic methods as my specialty is in accuracy of pronunciation.

Personal Description:
I have retired to this area where I enjoy living near the sea, and walking. I volunteer at our local theatre/cinema and sing in the choir at our Church in Southbourne. I have three grandchildren, two in London and one in USA and spend what time I can with them, using skype to talk to my family in USA. My husband and I both enjoy gardening.

Teaching Experience:

I am an Oxford graduate with more than 20 years of teaching experience in schools including A level maths and further maths (pure, statistics, and with a particular interest in mechanics). I have also given private tutoring to a large number of pupils from SATs to A levels. Many of those I have taught have returned for help with further exams, or have sent their friends to me, so most of my pupils have come through personal recommendation.

Tutoring Approach:

It gives me great pleasure to help those who struggle with maths to gain confidence and even come to enjoy the subject as well as helping the high fliers get their A grades. I expect pupils to work hard, but think it important to give work that is within their capability so the pupil can feel the achievement of getting things right.

Personal Description:
Stafford resident currently working in a Midlands sixth-form college providing language training to 16-19 year-olds. Professional, a good listener and able to get the best out of my students. I have excellent results from my current students and wish to harness my knowledge again into the field of private tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages for over twenty years to students of wide ranging levels (Beginners to A2 Level). A lot of my recent work has been with sixth-form students across the region but prior to that I worked with adults at many establishments on a more group basis. Equally, I have vast experience of working within businesses, providing language tuition at all levels. My teaching has been diverse and very interesting and I always relish a new challenge.

Tutoring Approach:

A tutor has to be able to focus on the individual needs of the student and make a learning session both varied and interesting. He or she must keep up-to-date with modern learning methods and changes in the curriculum. I am able to tailor my sessions according to the particular needs of the individual and be flexible at any time.

Personal Description:
I am an Engineer from an Elite Indian University called Jadavpur University, currently working in a Telecom company at Coventry.
I have been an above average student scoring 98% in Maths and 97% in Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) in ICSE which is Indian Equivalent of GCSE.
I have scored 99% in Maths and 92% in Physics in ICSE which is the exam that Indian students take at 18 years of age.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from Year 6 till Year 12. I teach almost all science subjects till Year 10, and Physics till Year 12.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to teach student the basic principles first and then help them apply the principles to general stuff they see around. This helps the students to learn while they have fun and helps them to solve their text book problems with more confidence.
Once a chapter is finished, I take comprehension tests before moving to the next chapter.
I can offer lessons both online and I can also come over to the student's place. But I need the students to be disciplined, obedient and punctual.

Personal Description:
Buongiorno. My name is Donatella and I am from Rome.
I am a fully qualified, professional language teacher and I have been living and working in London as a teacher since 1999.
I hold a First Class Master degree in Humanities with Highest Distintion from "Universita' La Sapienza" di Roma (Laurea Magistrale in Lettere e Filosofia con 110 e Lode) with a specialization in History of the Arts.

In 2000 I attended in London a 1 year Language training course and achieved an Oxford & Cambridge Certificate to teach Italian as a foreign language (OCR TFLA).

Teaching Experience:

In Italy I worked both as a teacher in a Montessorri school and as a tour guide.
In 2001 I started working for the LONDON COLLEGE OF FASHION, in Bond Street, were I taught Italian specificly for Fashion.
From 2004 to 2013 I taught at the UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS LONDON (Holborn) in the folllowing courses:

- BA Elective Italian for Fashion;
- FLAW courses (Foreign Language at Work),
- MFL courses (Modern Foreign Languages)
- ABC Award courses.

During the academic year 2005/2006 I also worked as an External verifier at GOLDSMITH UNIVERSITY, in New Cross, London.

I also have extensive experience as a private teacher, tutoring young students from age 5 to 16 as well as adults.
Through the years I have attended various training courses, including:

- One week International Conference "Italian as a Foreign Language" - UCL (2003)
- "Motivation Techniques and Exam preparation in Italian" - Italian Cultural Institute - London (2004)
- Seminars: "Language & Culture"; "One to one tuitions" - International House, London (2010).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is based on 4 pillars: passion; patience; careful planning; consideration of learner's needs & motivation.

I am extremely passionate about Italy, its culture and its tradition and I am enthusiastic about providing lovers of Italy with new opportunities to discover this incredibly diverse country through its language.

I regard PATIENCE in understanding and respecting students' individual pace, abilities and inclinations as a mile stone for my profession.

Teaching is not something you can improvise.
Being a good foreign language teacher requires familiarity with specific didactic theories and tecniques, as well as long experience.
It also requires thorough, time demanding PLANNING. No matter how many years I have been teaching Italian, I always prepare my SCHEME OF WORK to plan a term, as well as my LESSON PLAN to structure every session.
This also means selecting the best/most engaging teaching MATERIAL and NOT relying (simply) upon a text book.

As a teacher, I always consider the learner's NEEDS as my primary objective.
In particular:
- I listen to my students and calibrate my approach according to their personality;
- I identify and realise the potentials of individuals' abilities;
- I continuously learn from learners;
- I show them how to improve their lesser strenghts.

My classes greatly emphasise speaking & listening skills (tecnically called COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH), and are taught in a friendly, fun and relaxed atmosphere designed to enhance learning.

FEE
£ 38 p/h: pupils up to 11 ys old coming to my home;
£ 40 p/h: any other lesson at my home;
£ 44 p/h: any lesson within Zone 2;
£ 50 p/h: any lesson between Zone 3 & 4;


WHY LEARNING ITALIAN WITH ME
High specialization: - my degree, Humanities, is the only degree reconised in Italy to teach Italian language & Literature; -Pedagogy (the science of teaching) has been the subject of my university studies;

Long experience: I have been a Language teacher for nearly 20 years in well known establishments;
Cost effectivness: because of the above, the journey of learning is faster, more effective and appropriate;
Confidence & passion: I have high demands for myself as a professional, I master my subject and I know where I can lead my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient and tailor my lessons to individual needs because I understand that every student is unique. My aim is to build confidence in speaking and using languages by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practice or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. Depending on the student, the lesson can be more structured or more relaxed but I always want to try and make them enjoyable! I felt that this approach got a great response from my private students in the past. At the end of the day, I want the student to be happy!

I am familiar with all the last books of Spanish, like ´´Mira 1,2,3´´, ´´Viva´´, or ´´Studio´´

I love new technologies, I like giving them resources as ´´linguascope´´ which they can use to play and practice contents in their free time ; they can put into practice what we have learned in our lesson.

Personal Description:
Hello. I am a teacher with an MA in History, an MA in Creative Writing and a degree in Politics and History. I am also a published playwright and poet. I have been teaching part time in an English department at a University for the last four years as well as working as a private tutor. Prior to that I was a writer in residence in a young offenders institution using creative writing and drama to improve the literacy, thinking and behaviour of young prisoners. In 2014 I ran writing and drama workshops in a women's prison in New Zealand. I have worked widely in youth theatre and have written a popular text book on creative writing. My drama has been produced on stage and radio in the UK, Australia and most recently the US. I've also directed for theatre, most recently at Watford Palace Theatre. As well as a teacher, I have been a youth justice worker and a careers adviser. You can find out more about my work at website and blog.

Teaching Experience:

During the last academic year (2014 - 2015) I successfully tutored a local A level History student. This academic year (2015 -2016) I have tutored A level and GCSE English and am currently tutoring two GCSE History students. For the last two years I have taught creative writing (poetry, drama, short fiction) part time at Sheffield Hallam University; from 2012-2014, poetry at Edge Hill University. I have also guest lectured in History and Criminology.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to initially assess my student's strengths and weaknesses. Then to break the learning curve down into key objectives or units. Then to set a realistic time frame to achieve set goals. Always in mind is the objective of achieving an eventual good pass in the subject. I tutor online using skype as well as in person.

Those interested might be: students hoping to revise for GCSEs, those with Portuguese speaking business partners, or those who might be looking to improve their everyday phrases for an upcoming trip. Whatever your level of ability, I can help you.

Teaching Experience:

One-to-one tutoring with friends and family members.

Tutoring Approach:

I have booklets prepared for different ranges of ability and find that verbal repetition with the use of Portuguese songs happen to be most successful. The use of repetition allows for the correction of possible errors with diction or male/ female forms.
