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 am an experienced and skilled Tutor of French, Russian and English as a foreign language. I have been tutoring continuously for 6 years, typically working with 6 or 7 students at any one time. I have spent several years living and working abroad, so this has given me quite an international outlook. At the same time, I am quite well-travelled within the UK and have a good understanding of English history, culture and customs. As a native speaker of English, I have an excellent grasp of the English language, particularly in terms of grammar, spelling and pronunciation.

I am fair-minded, accepting of the needs of others, multi-culturally sensitive and take genuine pride in the quality of my work and going the extra mile wherever possible.

Teaching Experience:

I possess the PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) and am qualified to teach in Secondary Schools in the United Kingdom. I have four years experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language, and have taught the English as a Foreign Language curriculum at all levels, from elementary to advanced. I have taught a wide range of groups of both children, from the age of 11 upwards, and adults. I am particularly strong in teaching Business English to non-native speakers - I have redesigned and delivered an Advanced Level Business English Course for Masters Degree level students, I have worked with many private students of Business English on their premises, and have also successfully prepared students for the London Chamber of Commerce Exams in Business Communication.

I am very comfortable tutoring French up to A-Level Standard. I have myself lived in France for three years and have been educated in the French Education System up to Masters Degree level. I therefore have a very strong grasp of French language and culture which I love to share. I also actively use my French skills in my everyday employment,and am well used to interacting with French native speakers on a daily basis.

I am educated in Russian up to Bachelor's Degree level and have a similarly broad experience of practising and communicating in the Russian language, having spent five years living and working in Russian speaking countries. I am comfortable tutoring Russian up to A-Level Standard.

I have also delivered private lessons in order to prepare students for Private School entrance. I typically work with students on GCSE or A-Level preparation and have an excellent track record in delivering strong results in these areas. I have worked with family groups who were all keen to learn a foreign language together, as well as those seeking to learn for professional or business reasons, and both modes of tuition have also proved to be very rewarding for me. I prefer to build stable medium term teaching relationships, and retained one student for over 5 years, even if this meant my arriving dutifully every Saturday morning for our 9am class!

Tutoring Approach:

In a word: flexibility. I make every effort to really take on board and respond to the wishes of my clients. I am clear and proactive in communication regarding expectations and always seek to ensure mutual agreement with my students and parents as to setting realistic targets and the most appropriate learning strategies for their needs.

I am a great believer that learning should be fun and always seek to make my classes varied, challenging and stimulating, drawing upon as wide a range of learning skills and strategies as possible.

I have an excellent grasp of both spoken and written English, and am a strong believer in developing confidence in these areas through regular practice, setting realistic targets and offering plenty of praise and encouragement.

I prefer to work with individuals or smaller groups in a relaxed, purposeful atmosphere where there is plenty of tutor input or explanation as required, but also where students are given every opportunity to practise and develop newly acquired skills.

Personal Description:
I have an MA in Classical Philology and Russian Studies from the University of St Petersburg and am qualified to teach Russian, French, English and Latin. Since graduating in 1978 I have worked extensively in language teaching and translation / interpreting. I have also worked in France for 3 years and attended an interpreting school in Paris (ISIT - Institut Superieur d' Interpretation et de Traduction). I also hold a Diploma in Public Service Interpreting (DPSI in Law) issued by the Chartered Institute of Linguists and am a member of the National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI) and of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIL).

I have taught schoolchildren, students and adult learners at beginners, intermediate and advanced level. I have lived in Britain since 1991 and am available for tutoring in Cambridge, Huntingdon and in the surrounding areas.

I also provide English language tutoring for Russian, French and German speakers. As a translator / interpreter I specialise in Medical / Pharmaceutical and Legal translation and interpreting for private companies and public service organisations like the National Probation Service, the Police, the Courts and the NHS.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Latin at the Chemical Pharmaceutical Institute of St Petersburg (1978 - 1979).
Teaching English and French at the Technical University of St Petersburg (formerly the Leningrad Polytechnic) - 1981 - 1984 and 1986 - 1991.

Private tutoring - teaching English, French, Latin and Russian (1984 - 2015).

Tutoring Approach:

I do my best to give the student a good grounding in grammar which is a key to understanding and fluency whatever the language. I encourage students to listen to radio programmes in the target language, watch newsreports on television etc as it is a great learning tool. I feel passionate about languages myself and find teaching highly enjoyable.


I hold a full up - to - date DBS Enhanced check certificate issued 13 February 2013.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced and qualified EFL teacher, living in Sheffield.

I was born and raised in Sheffield, and studied Psychology at Newcastle University. I spent last year teaching English to school children in Vietnam. Before my time in Vietnam, I taught academic English to overseas Masters and Degree students at Newcastle University.

Teaching Experience:

2010-2011 Hanoi, Vietnam: Teaching English to school children (8-16 years old)

2010 Newcastle University, UK: Teaching academic English to overseas Degree and Masters students

2009 Newcastle, UK: Teaching school children (4-15 years old)

Tutoring Approach:

Our first meeting is free. Here we can get to know each other, and you can tell me what you want from the lessons. (Do you want help with your university work / everyday English / pronunciation / reading / listening /.? Do you want any homework? How often do you want to meet? ). After the first meeting, you can decide if you would like to start lessons with me.

I will then prepare some lessons, tailored to your requirements. After the first few lessons, I will identify your strong and weak areas, and you can tell me what you like or don't like about the lessons.

My lessons are relaxed and friendly - it's your time and money, so you should enjoy it!

Personal Description:
I am married with a daughter at university and a son at college. I am interested in many different things, from sports to wildlife. I think I am friendly and fun, and because I have tried learning foreign languages myself, am sympathetic towards my students needs!

Teaching Experience:

I have actually taught TEFL for about 10 years (and have been in the TEFL business for much longer, publishing books for TEFL). I have worked in Japan, Egypt and Spain and also taught at the IH Executive School in Piccadilly, London. Since 2009 I have specialised in teaching 1:1, all types of students, from young learners to senior business people.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to find out what the student wants and needs and then to try to give it to them in a logical and effective way. I try to make the lessons varied, interesting and relevant. The aim is always to help the student get closer to achieving their language goals.

Personal Description:
I'm a trained CELTA teacher with a passion for languages and music. I'm a bilingual native English and Spanish speaker and I'm also fluent in Italian as I lived and got my university degree in Rome.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught languages privately (English, Spanish and Italian) for 10 years to all levels and ages ranging from 5 to 70 years old. I currently teach English at a language school in Totnes as well as private one-to-one Italian and Spanish lessons and adult Italian group lessons in the South Hams area.

Tutoring Approach:

The overall approach to my teaching is communicative and the lessons are tailored to the learner's individual needs, whether it is preparation for an exam or work on specific skills and/or language functions. Initially, there would be a meeting with the student and, in the case of children, their parents, to determine the goals they want to achieve with the tutoring. I would be happy to provide written reports on the progress to the child's parents if required or arrange for meetings.

Personal Description:
Hello and welcome to my tutor profile! Here I'll try to answer to the questions you could have before booking a session with me.

- Let's start with my teaching system.
I am familiar with tutoring face-to-face (6 years) and online (+3 years). I have been part of a research which involves language teaching and technology, and I am right now studying a Masters' Degree in Online Education and Virtual Course Design. I use a wide range of visual tools to make lessons more appealing (virtual whiteboard, Google Drive, etc.) and have a personal platform to connect all my students.

- How do I speak?
I have a language certificate for working in the media, so my diction and elocution skills are very good. In case you wondered, I have a clear standard accent from Spain (and an Occidental accent in Catalan).

- How am I going to make you improve your language skills?
Let me be honest: I am a language learner myself, so I know the key is practice, practice... and practice! But I have good news for you: I'm here to help you with it in the most fun possible way, without forgetting about the cultural aspect of the language. Of course we'll see grammar (it is necessary), but always in a very practical context and according to your needs.

- How about session types?
This is absolutely up to you! From exam preparation, grammar, writing and conversation to the most advanced rules of ortotypography (I am a proofreader). This is the good part of teaching one-to-one, that I can tailor my lessons to your needs and learning style. You set your goal, I design a specific lesson plan!

Do you still have any questions? Then please get in touch, I'll be happy to help!

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching Spanish and Catalan for +3 years in a famous language platform. During this time, I have given more than 1000 online lessons to +180 students, with 100% attendance and positive feedback. References available upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

CONVERSATION
It doesn't matter if you're new to the magic of this beautiful language or if you've been studying it for ages (and secretly admit that you never took it seriously).

It doesn't matter if you don't know any other language or if you already speak 7 of them fluently.

It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 78.

Do you want to learn Spanish now? Then, that is all that matters.

Just let me know your goal and I'll create a path for us to follow. Learn some new expressions? Vocabulary related to a specific field (e.g. business Spanish)? Maybe you'd like to practise that complicated grammar structure you're struggling with? Or do you want to communicate effectively in a job interview or during a trip to Spanish-speaking countries? Doesn't matter how specific they are, let me know your language wishes and I'll make them happen.

____

ACCENT REDUCTION
Do you have a special interest in perfecting your accent in Spanish? Do you want to roll your [r] like Spanish people do? To follow specific training on a certain sound? In my university research (2014) I have proved that it is possible to do so via Skype, and this is actually the field I specialise in. In this course, I will diagnose your speech, prepare individualised exercises tailored to your needs and create a path for you to follow in order to achieve your phonetic goals.

If you're curious about this type of training, I can provide the reference of one of my students, who trained very hard and in around 2 months was able to roll her [r], or another student, who could improve her prosody and expressivity in only two sessions. Don't hesitate to send a message if you're interested or have any questions!

Personal Description:
Hello student, I am a young Spanish guy who work in the health sector (NHS), precisely in a microbiology laboratory.
I am a cheerful, hard-working, dynamic and patient person. I would like to teach Spanish in my spare time. Like you I've also been and am still a student of a foreign language, so I understand how hard it can be. But in the same way I also appreciate how nice it is to communicate in that language which has devoted so much time.

Teaching Experience:

My experience as a tutor is as follows. Six years coaching swimming to kids about 8 years old and currently at work teaching my coworkers about different techniques in the lab.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I can teach you to write, read, and talk. And all above that you are interested. Just ask me.

I'll show you the Spanish culture, its gastronomy (jamon iberico) and in which countries you can speak Spanish

I take a student centred approach to tutoring, tailoring sessions to fit the needs of the student.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker offering private lessons for people of any age who need help with their school homework, like to learn the basics of the language for holidays or just look for improving their conversation and vocabulary.

Teaching Experience:

I have significant experience as private tutor for many years in Argentina and Spain and for the last 4 years in the UK with children from 8 years old to adults.
I also work as teaching assistant at the MK College and schools in the Milton Keynes area.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly person with a lot of patience and sense of humor.
I enjoy teaching my language and working with careful preparation of lessons, managing time properly to be able to speak as much as possible and reading in a nice, smooth way.
I work on the listening and writing as well according to the needs, skills and difficulties of each student always using a variety of activities.
I will try to make lessons as interesting, funny and enjoyable as possible and I expect to see some progress from one class to the next.

Personal Description:
A 1st class scholarship graduate, one of London's top specialist full-time Maths tutors with 700+ hours experience, I am consistently in high demand.

I have a consistent record helping students gain acceptance into London's most prestigious schools through the 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+ or 13+ entrance exams, as well as routinely exceeding expectations by unlocking students potential for A* grades from Primary to GCSE level.

I have earned a reputation not only for outstanding results, but also for inspiring a long-term love of learning in my students. These are reflected by an abundance of testimonials, available to read below, that validate results and a positive change in attitude towards Maths.

As a young dynamic tutor, I get along great with kids and offer a uniquely enthusiastic and imaginative approach that students respond to. My affable nature paired with my breadth of knowledge, allows me to offer the very best tuition to children of all ages and backgrounds.

My belief is that the key to long term academic success is in encouraging a genuine curiosity which expands well beyond the limitations of government syllabi, paving the way for study and understanding at the highest level.

I am kept very busy by referrals, as my tutoring families regularly recommend me to their colleagues and friends. As such, please accept my apologies if I'm a little slow to reply during busy periods. I always write back as soon as I can.

Education:
1st in Engineering from the University of Western Australia as a scholarship student
Also received academic scholarships for exchanges to New York University and University of Sydney.

Hobbies & Interests:
Music (Singing, Guitar, Piano), Sports (Gymnastics, Football, Surfing), Drawing, Cooking, Reading.

Teaching Experience:

"My son connected with him from day one. Our son was at a very low ebb with his Maths, and Daniel stepped in and made real progress. From the first lesson, Daniel helped him to find the gaps in his knowledge and was able to get him to feel that he really understood. They worked together on anything that was challenging, and Daniel made such a difference. I think Daniel is an excellent teacher and we feel that our son has benefited enormously." - S D, mother (GCSE)

"The kids are very happy with your tutoring and so am I. They tell me that your lessons are excellent, and really building their confidence. We have put our faith in you Daniel. For the first time, our daughter has started to achieve top grades. We've also noticed other positive changes; she's a lot more sociable now too." - T K, father (GCSE and KS3)

"You've got a real talent: I can see that the you communicate with my son is really special; you get down to his level, you make friends, and you really connect." L H, father (Year 3)

"I can see that you've already made immense progress in the areas where our son is struggling. I'm really impressed with how much more easily he's working things out now. I tried and couldn't help him like you have!" - S W, father (11+)

"Daniel had a broad brief of inspiring my daughter to get excited by maths. He achieved this brilliantly with charm and enthusiasm. Daniel is inspiring, cool and effective." - T S, mother (Year 8)

"You've made it so much clearer; I thought I was never going to get this. I actually understand it all now!" - B S, student (8+)

"Daniel is full of energy and full of life. It is infectious! He can explain some very complex maths by chopping the material down into much more concise ideas. Entire double page spreads are condensed into an equation and a couple of bullet points. My daughter tells me that concepts that seemed complicated now seem easy, and that working with Daniel has saved her hours of struggling with revision. And if she's interested in a particular idea, he is fully able to expand beyond the syllabus too! He is a real genius, and the house brightens up each time with his presence!" - V N, mother (GCSE)

"I wish I could live with you so that we could have a lesson every day" - T A, student (Year 3)

"I got an offer for Westminster! I'm super happy. Thank you!" - A H, student (8+)

"Daniel has been a great tutor and a distinguished role model for my son. He has been talking about his 'smart teacher' ever since. He has the gift of teaching with fun and games. Thank you Daniel" - A O, mother (Year 1)

"You are by far our favourite tutor - and there have been many! I am so grateful to you for turning our son's maths around and giving him a true understanding of what he is doing - fantastic that you were able to achieve this." - C S, mother (Year 3)

"I can see a dramatic improvement. She's so much more focused, and her work is so much better." - K M, mother (Year 4)

"C got 3A*s so she was delighted, as were we. She did particularly well in statistics. Thank you very much for your contribution to that which boosted her confidence. Very positive feedback from us. C enjoyed her sessions with you and could quite see why you are so acclaimed." - J F, mother (GCSE)

"I showed E's teacher what she's been learning with you. She was really impressed; she says they're nowhere near that in school. E is way ahead of the class. She's doing so much better this year thanks to you Daniel." - A B, mother (11+)

"The results have been excellent. Both girls got straight As. G got a spectacular 100% in the exam! She was shocked because she didn't even think she was that good at it. Thank you for all your help." - C H, mother (7+)

"My son can't stop talking about you. He tells us all about the games you played, we can't believe he likes maths games!" - A O, mother (Year 2)

"Our son is very motivated and it's the first time I've seen him 'wanting' to do well. Very much due to your lessons!" - N W, mother (13+)

"My daughter tells me that you're a super genius - brilliant at maths, music, everything. I know that she will do well with you looking after her." - S A, father (GCSE)

"Daniel scored quite a coup when he had our son teaching his own maths class a method that the school teacher hadn't been able to teach them. Now A's whole class understands thanks to Daniel's method!" - W M, father (Year 5)

"C has come out top of the set in the majority of our assessments this term. I think her confidence is now far higher." - A A, C's school maths teacher (11+)

"We had been through countless tutors with my nephew and none of them could build up the relationship. But Daniel was different it's not easy to find a tutor of such high standard and character." - A S, uncle (Year 4)

"You were amazingly helpful to my son when you were tutoring him - you transformed his confidence in the subject and himself." - E A, mother (GCSE)

"It's so much clearer with Daniel than when we cover it in school" - A H, student (Year 7)

"My son was so excited after the lesson, telling me about your discussions with him which he found amazing." - C C, mother (Year 8)

"I was over the moon with my results. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help" - M R, student (7+)

"Thanks to you (somehow!) my daughter managed to get A* A* in her maths, so you were right." and "Your explanations are absolutely worth it. You have rescued my daughter's confidence." - R V, mother (GCSE)

"Our son did fantastically in the maths paper that Daniel helped him with, and a high A overall. Daniel's help was marvellous. J had missed so much revision time having had flu at Easter, he would never have fitted it all in, but Daniel made everything so simple." - R M, mother (Year 6)

"Thank you again - I doubt you will get a clearer `before and after` demonstration of the impact you can have! In our view it is not just the quality of the teaching you delivered, but it is also the success in motivating our son to engage!" - M T, father (GCSE)

"Daniel was an enthusiastic and lively tutor professional in all respects. I enjoyed his sessions and, importantly, I got my A!" - R K, student (Year 8)

"We just heard yesterday that H got into Latymer! We are so delighted." - C M, mother (7+)

"M got her A* in Maths so will be doing Maths A level next year. We're both thrilled and wanted to thank you again for all the help you gave her." - A D, mother (GCSE)

"Thank you for all your hard work. Our daughter set off for her penultimate A Level this morning saying she had never felt better prepared for a Maths exam and hoping that she would get the chance to show off her understanding of the subject. Going into an exam as well prepared and confident as that is certainly a great achievement!" - S H, mother (GCSE)

"I got an A in maths!" - T F, student predicted a C grade at GCSE (GCSE)

"We've had several other tutors and we just cannot find anyone as good as Daniel" - A B, mother (11+)

"May I take this opportunity to say how much G is enjoying your lessons (a real first, in terms of her Maths!) " - C P, mother (GCSE)

"My daughter moved up a maths group thanks to you you've achieved amazing results! And the best thing of all is that our daughter is enjoying her sessions with you! You've obviously formed a really strong link with her. When we were on holiday, she would keep seeing interesting things and saying "oh, Daniel would like to see this"." - C B, mother (11+)

"Well it would seem that you have been vested with some sort of guru status. Our daughter did so well on her Maths that she exceeded average and banked an A*. All of us couldn't be happier" - A M, father (GCSE)

"I actually got an A in Maths! I can't believe it! Thank you for all your help." - F C, student predicted a D grade at GCSE (GCSE)

"I like the trick you taught me for my times tables Daniel it's made me the best in my class." - C S, student (Year 2)

"Daniel has been the most understanding and considerate tutor imaginable. Our daughter has been trying to get back to school after being very unwell, and he has shown great sympathy but also positive encouragement when she has been able to study. He has worked her hard when she has been well enough but has given her easier sessions when necessary. He has been punctual, with excellent communication and well prepared to the sessions. I am hoping to use him more in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him." - C W, mother (GCSE)

"Thank you so much for all your help building up to the exams. Your tutorial sessions exceeded my expectations and were very helpful!" - I C, student (GCSE)

"I got the top mark in my class in Maths. I beat loads of people in the set above me too!" - T A, student (GCSE)

"Hey, Daniel we learnt about magnets in school today my teacher couldn't believe how much I knew. Some of the things I told him, he didn't even know about!" and "Hey Daniel, I got the highest mark in my class this year!" - C B, student (11+)

"I find it all really easy now, since Daniel explained it to me!" A P, student (GCSE)

"J scored third highest in the year. ALL down to you!" - C A, mother (GCSE)

Tutoring Approach:

As a maths tutor, I animate and energise every area of study, especially those areas that a student has previously considered dull and disinteresting. I always promote the most thorough understanding and spirit of inquiry, and through the unique interests of the individual, I build long-lasting connections with the most fascinating areas of each subject, forming a firm foundation to ensure that my students are able to excel well beyond my time with them.

My goal with tutoring is to catalyse independence, not dependence as most tutors do, by showing students their own potential. I know from experience that every individual has the potential to achieve great things, and I love to help my students to strengthen their sense of self worth, and travel on a trajectory towards leaving a positive mark on the world.

I'm a young, dynamic, relatable and enthusiastic tutor that loves to teach and gets a great sense of pride from my students success. I am intuitive, patient and affable with every student, regardless of background. I always endeavour to be the best tutor I can be and provide the best results for my students.

I ONLY TEACH 1.5 HOUR SESSIONS OR LONGER:
You may think this is too long for younger students, but 75% of my students are primary school students all enjoying 1.5 hour sessions because of the 15 minute fun time at the end (see below). Hour long lessons seem to end just as you are really getting into a topic and for that reason I only teach 1.5 hour sessions or longer. From my extensive experience it is clear that 1.5+ hour sessions are much more productive, comprehensive and effective at achieving results.

15 MINUTE FUN TIME AT THE END (FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS):
With all my younger students we have 15 minutes at the end for fun time where we do together whatever they want - like drawing or a game. At a young age tutoring is seen as boring and something really not looked forward to, but the 1.5 hour session with the 15 mins at the end completely changes that as they see it as I get to make a drawing with Daniel again today etc. If the session was an hour there would no time for games as you can't teach much in 45 mins. My references say I'm great with kids and prove how these 15 minutes make all the difference by making the lessons more fun, productive and effective at achieving results.

FREE FIRST LESSON/CONSULTATION:
The relationship between the tutor and student strongly affects the effectiveness of tuition so I like to give a free introduction lesson to see if we 'click' and you like the way I teach. It's also a consultation where we discuss where your child is at and where they would like to be. The length of the free first session indicates the length of following regular paid lessons.

There's nothing to lose so help your child today!
