Personal Description:
I'm a 46-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

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 an English and Film graduate from De Montfort University and am currently living in Croydon. I am a qualified CELTA teacher and have a passion for English, and literature in general, and I am very keen to teach it to students.

I enjoy films, cycling, travelling and reading and also have a diploma in filmmaking.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English in various forms for over 4 years. I did substantial tutoring with individuals and schools in Leicester, London, Korea and France. I am a certified CELTA teacher.

I was a full time English teacher in Seoul teaching students aged 4-14 for two years. I developed my teaching methods greatly and now I can show my private pupils how to succeed in their studies. I have been tutoring English in London for 2 years now, to students of various ages and abilities.

I also participated in a mentoring programme to help children in care build their confidence.

Tutoring Approach:

My strategy is to have the tutee and I discuss what goals the tutee wishes to achieve and together we will work to achieve those goals (e.g. pronunciation, grammar, listening, writing). The tutee may bring before me any aspect of English literature or language that he/she wants to improve and we will work on it.

I am also experienced in preparing students for Cambridge ESL exams.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher in my 30s. I am friendly, patient and approachable and enjoy helping children with their learning. I am able to provide help with KS1 and KS2 English/Literacy (reading, writing, spelling or a combination of these), and KS1 and KS2 maths. I particularly work with children who find the subject difficult and would like a little extra help and children who have specific special educational needs. My specialist subject is history and am happy to provide support for this subject at primary level also. I do not tutor for school entrance exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in education for 13 years, as a class teacher in Years 3 and 5, a museum teacher and currently as a Year 5 and 6 teacher in a village school in the Forest of Dean. I have been home tutoring for six years. The children I have tutored have gained in confidence, improved their skills and moved up groups in school within months.

"We can't thank you enough for all the help and guidance you have given H during the time you have taught him." (Parent)

"Thank you for helping me get better at maths and literacy. Since you have been helping me I have moved up a set to a better class. I am pleased about this, as now I feel more confident." (Year 5 pupil)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning should be fun, active and relevant to the child's interests and needs. I tailor lessons to the child's abilities, learning styles and interests, and include suitable levels of challenge to help them progress. I believe praise and encouragement is conducive to success and in raising a child's confidence if they are struggling. I am used to working with a wide range of children who have different abilities and interests, and can quickly assess the level they are working at and tailor their learning to suit their needs and interests.

Personal Description:
I am a German, Greek and EFL tutor, living in South East London. I have a University Degree in German Language and Literature and I am a native Greek speaker. I also have a Qualified Teacher Status from the General Teaching Council for England and Certificate of Proficiency in English from the Michigan University.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years of experience teaching both German and Greek in individual classes and in schools. I have prepared students for all kinds of exams and all levels. I have lots of experience with children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I plan all my lessons in detail, according to the students needs. I strongly believe, that a good lesson is based on the good relationship between the teacher and the student and I work hard to achieve this. My lessons always include all parts of the language: grammar, speaking, reading and writing. I do very often quick revisions, so as to make sure that my student understands everything, before I move on to other topics.

Personal Description:
I am a 31 year old, London based teacher who has recently returned from living and teaching overseas. I love teaching and have the CELTA qualification, as well as six years experience. I am flexible with hours and will charge half price if you can find a friend to join you!

Teaching Experience:

Six years.

IELTS, CAE, FCE

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer not to lecture students and instead put the focus on them, using what they already know in order to help them develop understanding by themselves. In the EFL world this is known as 'guided discovery'. Experience has shown me that this is a highly effective way of learning.

I like to be as practical as possible when teaching, meaning that I always put language into context and prefer to demonstrate rather than lecture.

I am friendly and patient, but I am also serious about the job and aim to do everything possible to develop my students' ability.

Personal Description:
Hello!

I have been told that I am an inspirational and motivating teacher. I love people and am passionate about my work which I manage to incorporate into an exciting yet balanced life. When not teaching I spend my time painting, singing, swimming, reading and travelling. My fourteen year old son, Charlie, attends our nearest Steiner school in Garlinge Green where he is very happy, I am delighted to say!

Teaching Experience:

I have been to Art College and also studied the four year BA in education at Christchurch in Canterbury, qualifying in 1994. I am therefore a qualified primary school teacher. I taught in several different primary schools before taking on a position as a drama teacher in a local secondary school. ( I have always been excited about all subjects and thus very happy to teach anything and everything!)

I was Head of Art at a local prep school for seven years, a super job, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have spent a few years teaching children with special needs which also gave me tremendous satisfaction, especially with regards to the social development of the children.

I am now working as a supply teacher as the flexibility suits my lifestyle perfectly.

Tutoring Approach:

Working with a person on a one to one basis is a luxury that has so many advantages. Unless, it has to be said, you are learning hockey skills, or something similar! Time is valuable and expensive, so, although relaxed, I am keenly aware that there is a lot of work that can be accomplished in one hour... the sense of satisfaction gained from work done, progression and obvious good results lead to a huge surge in confidence. It is my belief that it doesn't matter what area/field this is, only that it takes place, again, age is irrelevant too, five or fifty five, success is success and it makes us happy!

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be a very laid back and creative individual. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and consider photography to be not only a great art form but also a skill that so many people should be able to understand and enjoy! I have now been a full time photographer for over 10 years. My work has for the last 8 years been based in the U.K with one of the largest most prestigious studio portrait companies in the U.K, H.K,and America.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last 5 years I have tutored and mentored many new photographers of differing ages and skill sets. Some with no hands on experience at all, some with a firm grasp of the technical aspects of the camera who wanted to further themselves through lighting and post production digital techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take a friendly and enthusiastic approach to the questions and challenges that face new photographers young and old alike. Simplifying and finding real world associations on how the camera,lens and light work together with a creative mind.

Personal Description:
I graduated from Imperial College in Mathematics and stayed on to carry out research in Applied Mathematics to Diploma Level. I have always had a keen interest and enthusiasm for the subject. I have had a very varied career and have worked as a technical computer programmer as well as in Maths teaching in this country and abroad.
I have recently returned from the Middle East to my home in Tunbridge Wells and have four grown-up children.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mathematics in schools and F.E. colleges in the UK and in the United Arab Emirates up to G.C.S.E. and A Level.
I also tutored students both in this country and in Dubai with great success. In fact I was selected by my Dubai school to tutor the children of the Royal Family. This consistently resulted in excellent results for my students.
My own four children studied Maths to A level and I tutored them throughout their education.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly enjoy private tuition and tailor each lesson to suit the requirements of the individual student. I find it best if the student brings me their difficulties / problem topics to be worked on. I can also discover where help is needed by working through questions with the student. I have often been told that I give extremely clear explanations and that I have great reserves of patience.

I teach at my home in Tunbridge Wells. I can offer tuition in secondary Mathematics up to and including GCSE.

Personal Description:
Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

Hi there and thanks for viewing my profile. My name is Paul and I have been studying, researching and teaching politics since 1988 when I first started my undergraduate degree at Leeds. I gained my first degree with first class honours at Leeds, completed a PhD in Politics at Leeds in 1998 and subsequently lectured, tutored and researched in Politics / Political Economy / International Relations and European Studies at the University of Portsmouth from 1998-2015.

I took a career break from September 2015 to develop some personal projects but continue to offer tuition in politics.

My primary specialism is in the crossover between Politics and Economics (Political Economy) in a theoretical, international, global, European and policymaking context. Many students taking Politics or IR degrees struggle with the economic components of their degree, perceiving it to be a different and mathematical subject...Economic ideas and concepts are in fact central to any deep understanding of politics and IR but, happily, they are very much easier to understand than many students assume. One of my biggest strengths as a tutor is to be able to make economic ideas accessible, interesting, engaging and relevant to the non-specialist and to the student of Politics / IR. By connecting the economics very clearly to mainstream areas of politics such as political thought and public policy and by focusing on the non-mathematical aspects of economic thought, I have been able to help students overcome their initial fears about political economy and come to see it as both the fundamental - and fun - part of all social and political science .

In addition to my specialisms in PE/IPE, I have broad and deep subject knowledge having taught across the full range of Politics, Government, European Studies and International Relations subjects over the years so it is very unlikely that you would be studying something in this broad area of political and social sciences that I would not be able to cover.

And: I am very flexible and approachable: just ask if you have any queries at all!

Teaching Experience:

Award winning and experienced HE lecturer offers private tuition in all social science subjects and primarily in Politics/Government, Political Economy, European Studies and International Relations.

I was Principal Lecturer in Politics/IR at Portsmouth University, Associate Head of the School of Social Historical and Literary Studies (2003-11) before moving up to a Faculty job. Overall I taught in HE at Portsmouth from 1998 until September 2015. I decided to take a voluntary career break in 2015 to develop a variety of my own pet projects but I continue to offer tuition on a private basis across the social sciences to undergraduate, postgraduate and A-level students.

I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and previously the ILT since 2001, and am currently applying for Senior Fellowship status.

In addition, I am an experienced personal and study skills tutor, a role I always took seriously at University. I see the role of a tutor as partly that of a 'coach', facilitating as much as possible your own development as a student. I honed this approach over time as a lecturer and it was especially useful in dissertation supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Tutoring Approach:

During my time at Portsmouth I was nominated for and won several teaching awards including 'Most Innovative Lecturer' and 'Best Feedback'. A major strength of my teaching is that I give very positive, encouraging and constructive developmental feedback on your ideas, plans and writing combined with broad and deep subject knowledge.

As a lecturer I am highly engaging, dynamic and open and I have a gift to explaining complicated concepts in very clear and accessible ways using stories, metaphors and analogies. Indeed I am currently writing a book in which this approach is used to teach Economic concepts to non-specialists without any numbers at all - purely through stories, analogies and metaphors.

In addition to offering private tutoring I am also an accredited trainer and life coach, as well as a proof reader. So the skills sets I bring to private tuition are more diverse than just lecturing / teaching although of course I also do have that extensive classroom and tutoring experience you require (18 years!).

My main specialisms are: international and global political economy, economics for non-specialists and social scientists, public policy, British politics, comparative politics, political ideas and theory, political ideologies, international relations.

Personal Description:
I find teaching very interesting and exciting particularly because there is always something fresh to be added when opening up the world of the subject to a new person who inevitably has their own challenges as regards to their goals and current or past attainment. I like to see the connections between the language or literature being studied and the daily life of the student - to me this is the way to transmit the true importance of their studies to the student. I love to mix fun and creativity with more formal tests and drills, using variation in order that the learning does not stagnate.

After Scottish Highers and A Levels, I got into Cambridge and I graduated with a BA in English. Afterwards I did a Masters in Twentieth Century Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London before doing part of a PhD at Leeds University. Immediately folowing my academic studies I started working and volunteering in the charity sector, eventually helping to establish a new homelessness charity in Cambridge.I have been tutoring and teaching since I left university and now it is my career. I do believe tutoring is my vocation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor and teacher for about 7 years in total. My Masters specialism was in literature, and I have wealth of English literature and language teaching experience. I have worked with children from age 4 upwards and adults of all ages and ability levels. I have worked as a self-employed tutor and also in state-funded and private educational establishments.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my approach to the individual depending on their learning style and their areas of interest. I spend time getting to know the student and developing a rapport before preparing lessons which make the learning material appealing to that individual. I like to set timelines, goals and homework so that students have a tangible sense of their progress and achievements. I work with a reward system where students set their own reward for results or outcomes they will work towards. I have experience of students achieving excellent results, but for me it is important that the student progresses and achieves what is appropriate to them and their long term goals
