Personal Description:
Do you wish to master Chinese in the quickest possible time? As a highly qualified and professional native-Chinese speaking tutor, I'll show you how!

I have excellent teaching skills demonstrated by 10 years of teaching experience as a university English language lecturer and Chinese language tutor.

Back in China, I worked as a lecturer in English as a second language and was awarded as Excellent Teacher in School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Xi'an University of Technology.

I started tutoring English speakers in Chinese in the UK in 2010. I teach Chinese in a professional, effective and innovative way so that mastering the target language will be full of fun, stimulation and excitement, and more importantly, achieving the learners' objectives in the shortest time possible.

I offer face to face or/and on-line tuition service, including -
• 1-hour FREE trial session
• Free 24/7 out-of-class support, advice and guidance available
• Designing a tailor-made strategic teaching plan to maximize the efficacy of learning

Having been working in UK-based multi-cultural companies during 2012-2015 as China Business Development manager, consultant and translator/interpreter, I'm also able to help business people with Business Mandarin, and especially the relevant business affairs and knowledge in China.

Teaching Experience:

Having been a university English language lecturer and Mandarin instructor makes me a versatile teacher. I've taken the opportunity to instruct a wide variety of students from various backgrounds and with varied learning purposes.

Here are a few testimonials (one is abridged) from my tutees -

" If it wasn't for Ning and her constant support and patience, I would have probably given up on learning Chinese at university!
 
I have gone from not being able to string a Chinese sentence together to achieving a 2:1 on my final exam, all in the space of 6 months.
 
Ning goes above and beyond to ensure that learning material is tailored to individual needs of the student, suiting all abilities. Her supporting and encouraging nature makes learning much more enjoyable and I highly recommend her to anyone. "
 
- Aishia (18 years)


" Ning rekindled my love of learning Chinese and she was friendly and really easy to chat to, and I really enjoyed my lessons with her.

She never made me feel stupid if I found something difficult. She was always really well prepared for my lessons and told me what I needed to do and to bring, and she always had everything that she needed.

She had loads of good ideas to help me learn. She worked really hard to help me do well.
​
I got an A in my GCSE Chinese after I'd been learning with Ning for only six months; a year later I got 266/300 in HSK3 and 77/100 in HSKK."
​
- Delilah


''Ning has been brilliant at taking my daughter through GCSE Mandarin.
 
She made a careful plan to take my daughter through the syllabus, taught her really well and thoroughly, and is very supportive and encouraging. I could trust her completely.
 
My daughter so much enjoyed learning Mandarin with Ning that she has decided to continue lessons with her to take a higher qualification in Mandarin. "
​
- Kate (Delilah's Mum)


'' I have been studying mandarin with Ning for the past year. I am an advanced mandarin speaker having studied since 2007 - both in China and in the UK.
 
I rate Ning's teaching extremely highly and would be delighted to recommend her to other fellow students ...

... I've had approximately 10 mandarin tutors since I started learning mandarin and I rank Ning as one of the very best. If you're looking to learn about the Chinese language and culture, then you couldn't go far wrong.  "
 
- Eleanor


" Holding the attention of my eight-year-old son for any length of time is a feat of Herculean proportion.
 
How Ning manages to keep him focused for an hour is astonishing and highlights her remarkable gift for teaching. 
 
The lessons strike the perfect balance between being factual and fun, meaning my son happily sits down for his weekly session. I would highly recommend Ning."
​
- Lucia (Anthony's Mum)


''Ning is a brilliant teacher!
​
If you get something wrong, she will explain it again. And she is very patient.
​
I have so much fun during Ning's lessons, I love the flash cards and Ning helps me make my own sentences in Chinese.
​
She emails me homework every week, this helps me a lot. Because of it, and the fun way she teaches me, is why I am so good at it! "
​
- Joe (9 years)


" From a parent's point of view, our son looks forward to his lessons with Ning and is totally engaged during them.

Ning has given him the confidence to communicate with Chinese speakers, when the opportunity arises.

We are so proud of him, due to the fact that in a short period of time, Joe has been able to hold brief conversations in Chinese.''


- Brennan & Beatriz (Joe's Parents)

Tutoring Approach:

I'm able to utilise my analytical mind, across-the-board knowledge and understanding in Chinese language, extensive teaching skills and experience to implement comprehensive, systematic and constructive teaching approaches to effectively support students' needs, integrate multi-cultural teaching units, create and design curriculum and learning materials, make accurate assessments and offer positive encouragement and keep students fully focused and motivated; as a consequence of this, the leaners' targets can be obtained in good time.

Tailor-made lessons provided for all age groups: beginners, intermediate and advanced learners. My tuition involves traditional classroom and on-line activities, assisting and supporting students in their academic, business purposes or personal interest -
• Academic Mandarin (GCSE, A Level and HSK)
• General Mandarin
• Business Mandarin
• Mandarin for Kids
• Tourism Mandarin
• Survival Mandarin
• Chinese business culture and etiquette
• Field trip and workshop (Chinese cuisine, cooking, media, travel, music, film, Beijing opera, tea culture, folk art, business negotiation and shopping & eating out etc.)

One of the effective ways I assist my students is by developing and presenting thorough and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate all learning styles. I research, locate and incorporate a variety of resources to accommodate students' needs and I integrate literature, workshop, classroom activities and technology to ensure the students are able to comprehend and retain the concepts of the target language.

Also working as a teacher in both Chinese and English has given me a deep insight into differences between the languages, esp. in the features of word uses and structures, hence it allows me to explain explicitly similarities and differences of the mother tongue and target language to the learners so as to gain the best results of learning.

Personal Description:
How did I become bilingual in English and French? It wasn't a miracle. If I can do it so can you.
I learned French in Lyon whilst I was teaching English as a foreign language. Your lessons with me are focused on real communication. I show you how I developed the skills of understanding and speaking the language so you can speak confidently too.
I've taught people from all sorts of backgrounds and am convinced that anyone can learn how to communicate in a foreign language. It's such a rewarding skill; great when you want to have a conversation, join in with the culture and just for the pure sense of achievement.
Speaking another language just feels really good.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last year, I have shown 50 people how to speak better French and English. That's nearly 1000 hours of teaching!

Language teaching experience
- French evening class to adults (2 years Secondary School, Essex)
- English as a foreign language to business executives, air traffic controllers and undergraduate university students (3 years International Language Trainers, Lyon)

Formats
- Skype lessons
- One-to-one private tutoring
- Group conversation classes
- Intensive crash courses

Complete beginners, people coming back to language learning after a long gap, and confident speakers who want to take their language skills to the next level

Tutoring Approach:

As your tutor, I wear many hats, I'm there to guide you through your learning, motivate you to keep moving towards your goals, make it easy for you to understand and give you lots of support for your own independent learning.
You will learn faster if you are open to exploring the language, prepared to take a few risks when speaking and are willing to engage with lots of different learning strategies that keep things interesting and challenging.
We have all proved that we have the skills and capacity to learn language, just by the fact we speak our own language. My approach is to tease out all the strategies and techniques that you already have for language learning, along with a few I've developed, and help you apply them to another language.
It's a fascinating journey with many benefits that go way beyond being able to conjugate verbs correctly, although of course grammar is important.

I travel to Epping, Harlow, North Weald, Bishop's Stortford, Great Dunmow, The Rodings, Saffron Walden and surrounding areas.

Personal Description:
PhD Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering

BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (First class honours)

Teaching Experience:

I have formal teaching/lecturing experience and working as a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at a University in London. I have been tutoring privately physics and mathematics to number of GCSE and A-levels students for neary last ten years. I have also tutored various BEng level engineering modules to University students. Testimonials or references can be provided upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which students feel more comfortable and confident to raise questions. I like to listen to my students being at their level to address and identify the basic difficulties that they face in understanding the subjects. I try to involve the students in problem solving and present the subjects in an interesting manner with the help of useful hints that are often required and are proved to be helpful to provoke the original thought in order to improve their analytical and problem solving skills. I find myself committed and patient and I believe that such teaching skills make me ideal for tutoring. I frequently highlight the practical implications of the subjects where possible so that the students could relate the subjects to real world problems. I am happy to concentrate on the specific areas that the student struggles with. The focus of my approach is to prepare students for the final exams by developing the required skills such as time management, stress/pressure handling and analytical thinking etc. I believe, the deeper understanding of the mathematical sciences could only be achieved through the intensive practice.

  • Combined Science
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello,

I obtained my law degree from Queen Mary University of London. Then I studied the Legal Practice Course as well as the MA (LPC with Business). Finally, I have completed my Bar Professional Training Course and I have been called to the Bar in July 2016 . I have been working at a law firm since then.

I am from Cyprus, thus I speak, write and read fluent Greek as well. Despite my country of origin, I have been living in UK for six years and I can confidently say that I am fluent in English. I have obtained 8 out of 9 in IELTS.

Despite my academic background, I always participate in various volunteering projects. I have worked in Ireland at Barretstown camp where I had to supervise children from all over the world. I have been a student adviser at the Legal Advice Clinic since 2014. I have been the student director in the call screening part of the Legal Advice Clinic since October 2015.

I am a really hard-working and organised person and this can be justified by the fact that while I was studying the BPTC and being a student adviser and student director, I have been working part time in a law firm.

I believe that there is always enough time if you use it wisely!!

Teaching Experience:

For the past five years, I have been tutoring students of various ages. I have worked with younger students up to the age of 18 by assisting them with their homework and their yearly exams. Furthermore, I have been teaching IELTS to people who either were interested in taking the particular exam or just improve their English.
I have helped students to learn Greek from scratch.

Finally, since I studied law and have been working at a law firm ever since I keep myself updated in relation to the academic law modules. Thus, I am extremely confident and I am helping numerous law students with their assignments, final assessments and re-sits.

Tutoring Approach:

As a fully organised individual, I am always well prepared for each lesson. I am ready to give the appropriate attention and time to each student in order to achieve the desired result. Apart from teaching the chosen module, I am assisting students to improve their study skills.

In relation to law students that need assistance with their assignments, I research the subject-matter and I provide a structure. Further, I review the drafts with comments in order to enable the student to understand his/her mistakes and submit the perfect version of his/her essay.

Everyone has their setbacks, I strongly believe that what matters is to give yourself an opportunity to learn the correct way how to overcome your obstacles, re-gain your confidence and not struggle on your own.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name's Chris and I provide a guitar tuition service in and around Worcester. I offer both acoustic and electric guitar lessons for beginner and intermediate students of all ages. I teach a variety of styles and can tailor lessons to your own musical interests so that you're not only learning the music you love, but developing other essential skills in a relevant musical context.

Teaching Experience:

I have 12 years experience playing guitar and hold a joint-honours degree in music.

Tutoring Approach:

In addition to teaching you how to play the guitar, I can offer expertise in other areas of music. Having spent three years studying music at university, and being a writer myself, I can assist you with your own compositions, arrangements and songs. Likewise I can help with the sometimes precarious art of accompanying yourself as a singer! The focus of lessons is up to you, though equally if you're unsure of exactly what you'd like to learn I can offer plenty of options. As a patient and considerate individual my lessons tend to be relaxed but highly productive.

Guitar lessons can be arranged at times to suit. I'm generally available on weekday afternoons and evenings but feel free to contact me to check my current availability. I teach at my family home in the Barbourne area of central Worcester but I am also willing to travel within Worcester and to nearby surrounding areas of Worcestershire. For this service I charge an additional fee to cover the cost of transport and travel time, this is £5 within Worcester and £10 for Droitwich and Malvern.

My rate is £15 per half hour, however longer lessons are perfectly possible. For more information, or to arrange a lesson please feel free to contact me.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, creative and highly experienced teacher of English language and literature. I retired In 2014 from the full-time secondary school teaching post I held for 23 years, at an independent girls' school in Lincolnshire. I taught throughout the school, at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and have a strong proven commitment to raising academic standards; my students have achieved consistently excellent GCSE and A Level grades. Although I have a particular passion for teaching literature, I am a rigorous teacher dedicated to raising standards of literacy through my teaching of English language, and to the educational and personal development of young people more widely, especially those in transition to higher education.

As well as teaching my academic subject, I was a sixth form personal tutor for 18 years, monitoring my students' academic progress, and guiding and mentoring those applying to university, assisting with UCAS applications and personal statements, or helping tutees plan for a gap year or for employment - a role which I found particularly fulfilling. I also have experience of teaching in further education and have been successful in teaching mature students from different cultural backgrounds.

For two years 2012-14 , I supervised sixth form students taking the AQA Extended Project Qualification. I greatly enjoy one - to-one tuition.

In a career spanning more than 40 years in all, I have built up extensive subject knowledge and teaching expertise, which I can adapt to students ranging from 11 years to adult.

Teaching Experience:

In my most recent post, which I held for 23 years until my recent retirement, I taught English Language and English Literature throughout the school: to pupils aged 11-14 at Key Stage 3, to pupils taking GCSE exams, and to sixth formers taking AS and A level English.
At GCSE and AS/A Level my pupils have obtained consistently excellent results. I have taught a very wide range of set texts for literature and have taught courses by different exam boards, such as Edexcel, and OCR, and the CIE IGCSE.

My teaching has often involved one-to-one sessions with pupils who need extra support and I have taught those whose attainment in the subject is modest, as well as higher achievers in English.

My teaching experience prior to this included teaching for a total of 7 years full and part-time in further education colleges, and I have also taught English as a foreign language for the British Council.

I have been tutoring privately since retiring from full time school teaching, and I currently tutor students ranging from 15 to 21, assisting with preparation for GCSE exams, A Levels, and at university level. I have been tutoring students following a range of different GCSE courses and examining boards, including Edexcel IGCSE, Cambridge IGCSE, and AQA GCSE courses, both language and literature qualifications, and also the Edexcel combined A Level Language and Literature. My tutoring role includes assisting my tutees with revision of a wide range of set texts, demonstrating my adaptability and expertise in quickly grasping what different exam techniques are required. My private tutees gained English language and literature grades that exceeded their school teachers' expectations in the summer 2015 round of GCSE exams, achieving grades ranging from C (D predicted) to A* (B predicted). In summer 2016, again, my private tutees achieved good grades at least one grade higher than predicted at school and have been able to continue to the next stage of their studies, including university entrance.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a natural continuation of my approach as a classroom teacher. I am passionate about my subject and prepare lessons thoroughly and imaginatively. I begin by making sure I am fully in the picture with regard to the specific course being followed and the exam criteria, and use the exam boards' websites to source relevant materials such as past papers and teaching resources.

I always have a clear lesson plan and realistic aim of what I wish to achieve in the time available. I like people and I am a friendly, outgoing person who will communicate successfully with a tutee; I enjoy the company of young people and am experienced in putting my tutees at their ease and building their confidence, which I believe is very important. I form productive relationships with those I teach and am good at listening to them and assessing their needs, and adjusting my teaching strategy accordingly.

As well as preparing thoroughly, I mark work meticulously and give very detailed and helpful feedback, both in writing and orally. I set relevant work to be completed for the next tutorial, and monitor progress closely; I stay in regular contact with my students and/or their parents via email and phone.

I am a hardworking and sympathetic tutor with the interests of my tutees at heart; my aim is to help them achieve their full potential and gain exam success.

i prefer to tutor in my own home where I am set up to receive my tutees in a quiet environment designed to maximise academic concentration. I do not tutor on Fridays or at weekends. I am usually able to tutor in school holidays, when I can offer longer, more intensive revision sessions.


Here are some recent 2016 testimonials from former tutees and their parents:

A Level

We turned to a private tutor because our daughter received a disappointing result in her first year of A Level English, but she knew she could do better and wanted to go to a first class University to study English. Her coursework had been excellent and most of her homework was good, too, but her exam technique was less secure. Isla definitely made a difference. She is a nurturing teacher who interacts with the student really well. Isla gave good advice about preparing for the exam paper and gave support in revision of the various texts, which boosted our daughter's confidence. Having achieved the necessary entry grades, our daughter is now at Newcastle University starting her degree course and wants to keep in touch with Isla."
Sally S, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, parent of A Level student

"As someone who wanted to pursue English at university, my grade C at AS Level was not good enough, so during Year 13 we found a private tutor to help me with my A Level English Language and Literature course. Isla put lots of time into helping me come out with an overall high grade B. She gave me wonderful advice with my creative coursework and really enhanced my knowledge of the two plays I was studying for my written exam. I am so grateful and will continue to keep in touch with Isla as I enter my degree course at Newcastle University for English Literature and Creative Writing."
Emily S, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, A Level tutee

GCSE
"Isla provided excellent support during Year 10 and 11 to our daughter in relation to her GCSE studies in both English Literature and Language. This complemented her learning at school and enabled focus on those areas where extra support or explanation was needed. Isla was very flexible in her approach, tailoring her lessons to our daughter's needs and providing additional support on the run up to the exams themselves. Although our daughter isn't continuing her English studies at A Level, Isla is going continue to provide support in relation to essay structure and comprehension in the subjects she has chosen to study. We would highly recommend her. "
Rachel M, Leicestershire, parent of GCSE pupil

Personal Description:
My name is Carolina, my mother language is Spanish and I am 34 years old. I am a qualified Spanish tutor and I cover both Castilian Spanish and Latin American Spanish. I love languages and being able to teach Spanish is an enriching experience for me and I want to carry on learning other languages myself as it is a totally open door to the world and it is what I like to transmit to each of my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide experience teaching and assisting English teachers and other subjects in my hometown so I know how to give a personal value to each of my students as everyone is different and unique and I am completely conscious of the different teaching methods suitable for individual needs. Teaching and learning a language should be enjoyable and fun, with plenty of opportunities to make and correct mistakes without embarrassment and always with a wide-open window for the communication, which is the base of any language.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning a new language is a challenge for anyone and for some people could be easy to comprehend certain things and not so easy other type of things, but when learning the language in a context, where the student is able to see the full picture of the form of the language and be able to explore why its the way it is, is what I strongly believe is the best method of learning. A word on its own does not mean anything in any language, but when you put it on a context, then it takes shape, a nice shaped like a puzzle.

Personal Description:
I have taught, supervised and mentored more than 1000 BSc, MSc and PhD students from around the world to deliver individual and team projects. I worked as a trainer, programme leader and module coordinator in the courses on IT Strategy and Management, Global Business and Sustainable Management, Business Administration, Organizational Development, Public Sector Management and Research Methods (Qualitative & Quantitative), supervising & managing research projects, (re)developing curricula for eLearning, producing course syllabi and designing evaluation methods together with colleagues and support staff in various UK and European universities.

Teaching Experience:

I am competent in most subjects within Management and Economics programmes and have extensive experience in thesis and assignment supervision, research guidance as well as academic writing.

MSc Dissertation in Project Management with A. - I worked with A. to help her with her MSc Dissertation in Project Management. I clarified the key issues and concepts, helped her develop a plan and a reading as well as reference list. Tutored her academic writing skills and coached her throughout the entire process. She was almost sure she would have failed, yet not only she ended up enjoying the time dedicated to her dissertation, but she also achieved a merit.

MSc dissertation in Economics with I. - I. was confused about the literature and the research for his course work and dissertation, he was also worried about his writing style. With regular sessions with me, I. gained the understanding and tools to improve his research and writing and submit his course work dissertation on time.

Research Methods (MBA dissertation) with P. - I helped P. prepare a first class approach for the research methodology of his MBA dissertation and to identify articles in arabic that were relevant for his topic.

BSc, Project Management Essay with J. - J. was under intense time pressure to deliver his project management essay and prepare for his exams at the same time. I worked with him two days in a row so that he could achieve high results in both.

BSc, Management, Accounting & Economic Philosophy assignments tuition with T. - T. is a hard working student from China. Unfortunately, his brilliance and knowledge was not emerging following his first essay results. Working with him 2/4 hours per week for 4 months, T. is now confident again he can truly express his knowledge and get the results he deserves.

BSc, Microeconomics tuition with H. - I worked with H., a native English speaker understand the way to approach and revise for her micro-economics module. She requested one week of intense online tuition, albeit the exam was imminent in one month. H. has now successfully completed the module

BSc, Advanced Economics Subjects, Econometrics (essay based) with V. - I worked 2 and half months giving V. 2-5 hours of tuition every day to prepare for his exams and coursework. V. learning needs had to be tailored to his special needs: being a dyslexic student I had to stimulate his learning ability and memory skills using visual aids and ad hoc examples. Even if the subjects were highly technical he benefited immensely from my dedicated approach, exclusive to him.

MBA dissertation with H. - H. was a full-time working mum of two children with special needs and had very little time to complete her MBA dissertation which was due in two months when we started. Working evenings and weekends with me H. was able to complete and submit her thesis on time and still thanks me for it!

BSc, Economic Development, Regulation, Business & Management with S. - I gave S. tutoring in three final year BSc subjects helping him increase his grades and better plan for his revision in order to use her time well.

PhD Management tutoring with K. - K. is one of my current tutees studying for a PhD in management. We have highly intellectual sessions on his research progress and he consults with me regularly on all aspects of his PhD studies.

Economic Development BSc exam preparation with J. - J. needed to discuss his understanding of the module to better prepare for his exam. He requested me to have regular questions and answers sessions one a week for two weeks with him so that any knowledge gaps could be filled. Our tutorials helped him relieve the stress and anxiety of the exam preparation.

TESTIMONIALS:

The feedback Diego gave me was a clear view on how to improve my work

Diego has been very helpful and gives clear information. His classes are very interesting and I have chosen his courses because of his approach.

Diego is a wonderful tutor. His teaching approach towards the subject has made me develop my interest in it.

Diego, for my personal opinion, has been really helpful for me to understand the real meaning of the subject.

The tutoring Diego gave me was great and I wouldn't have been able to do my essay to a good standard without his help!

I am happy with tutoring sessions with Diego, as I was trying to establish the research methods and his advice was helpful.

As a dyslexic final year undergraduate, I would not have been able to complete my revision on time without Diego's tutorials.

Personal Description:
I am currently pursuing a degree in Civil Engineering at the University College London (UCL). A result orientated, highly motivated individual, passionate in delivering the best of my abilities in achieving my goals.

Teaching Experience:

Taught lower secondary school students in relief classes when teachers were away on leave as a senior prefect. Also mentored fellow peers before A-Level examinations and conducted group study sessions to create a sense of equal level while leading the group study session with topics they did not understand.

Tutoring Approach:

In my GCSE Equivalent examinations (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia), I have been tutored over Skype for my personal tutor left for a different state. Among peers, relatives and friends, this was a new thing and wondered how it would have worked. I had the experience of learning Physics and Additional Mathematics through voice and video call conducted twice a week where my tutor shared questions and solutions while intently listening to my thought processes as I attempted to carry out solving the problems. Before finally seeking tutoring, I was averaging a C for Additional Maths and a B for Physics. I found this method very helpful and managed to score As in Mathematics, Additional Mathematics and Physics in the final paper. This is a way I hope to implement when teaching over the internet.
