Personal Description:
I am French and mother of 2.
In 2004 I registered with OFSTED to teach French to young children, being Ofsted registered gives parents the peace of mind that I have a CRB, Insurance, Training and allows parents to pay me with Childcare vouchers.

Teaching Experience:

I used to tutor French to adults only when I lived in Czech Republic and Germany 15 years ago.

From 2004 I taught mostly children and toddlers and since 2009 I am teaching an increasing number of GCSE students, A Level and adults of all levels.
I cater for all students irrespective of ability including those with challenging needs.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is adapted to the student ability. I use a lot of very varied resources and try to make the tuition fun.

The fee stated is for tuition from my home. If you wish to have tuition from your home or office please add 5.00 + taxi cost (if more than 15 minutes walk).

Personal Description:
I work with my students to increase their confidence and help them improve their communication skills, in speaking and writing.

I have an English Degree from Bristol University, and I speak fluent French. I have a Trinity TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification.

I have worked as a writer, journalist and editor in this country and abroad, for magazines, newspapers and the BBC World Service.
I have worked for the UN and the EU, as well as many private clients and international aid agencies.

I came to tutoring in Africa, where it was clear that my services and experience could be very useful to students at all levels: I have taught one to one and in small groups, privately and most recently for a comprehensive school in Surrey.

I have also edited an MA thesis in History of Art for the Courtauld and some theses for Sotheby's History of Art students (we normally do very well!).

I have an Assessor's and Verifier's Award for CITY and Guilds NVQ courses. I am also teaching English and other subjects in Prisons in London, Kent and Sussex.

I am a mother of two boys, both now at university. My husband works in conservation which is why the family has travelled extensively. We are now back in England for the foreseeable future.

Teaching Experience:

Private students (A level and GCSE) and also teach GCSE English on a 1:1 basis to the lower sets of students at Jubilee International High School in Surrey. They have all raised their grades significantly and are much more confident with their work.
EFL at Guildford College to young Spanish students - Summer 2013.
I speak fluent French; I was a governor at Cranbrook School in Kent, and stood in for a term for the French assistante when she had to go home early. My A level students did well, and two continued their classes with me privately.
Tutor at Make the Grade tuition in Tunbridge Wells and also at summer English revision courses at Tonbridge School.
I devised and delivered a course for women journalists in Sierra Leone and taught creative writing and English at Foura Bay University.
Creative writing privately to groups, and at the University of Kent. I have helped students with presentation and interview skills, their CVs and Drama and Performing Arts GCSE.
Assessed NVQ Level 2 students in Customer Service with a 100% pass record.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand communication at all levels - verbal, written and on the web - and I am passionate about making people understand each other. I care very much about the basics - grammar, punctuation, spelling, and I have devised effective study skills tools which make a real difference.

My sessions are fun and inspiring. I am patient, and approachable, and work hard with my pupils to help them reach their full potential. I cannot do magic, but even the least able have contacted me after their exams to tell me they felt more confident about them. Some even told me they enjoyed them!

Personal Description:
I am a first year Physicist at Imperial College London. My clientele include students studying KS3, GCSE and A Level.

Having recently finished secondary school, I have an extensive knowledge of the education system and what is expected of students with regards to content and examination technique etc.

I feel I can relate to young students as I am not much older and have and still am going through the stresses and strains of exams! I understand how daunting Maths can be, as it certainly was for me when I was younger. However, one-to-one tuition may just be the catalyst that helps students 'click', and suddenly they understand this topic or can do this question.

I am undoubtedly competent in Maths, as shown by my results, and hope to show my students that they can improve their grades.

With the run up to those all-important exams, I can help students gain those crucial marks. I believe that to excel in Maths it is imperative that students practice, something which I can assist in.

Teaching Experience:

Have tutored students from a number of year groups and a range of exam boards including Edexcel and AQA.

Tutoring Approach:

I am open to the student's preferred style of learning and revision. I welcome specific queries and offer most help with exam questions. I can also explain whole topics if it was not picked up by the student at school or need further assistance.
Early on, lesson content will be largely dictated by the student until I uncover particular areas of weakness. Nearer to the exam period, emphasis will be on exam technique and working through past papers.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Eva, and I would describe myself as a very warm, friendly, straight forward and patient person, with excellent communication skills. I have an incredibly strong academic record (A-Levels: English Literature-A*, Drama-A*and French-A) and a genuine love for reading, theatre, and music. I feel passionate about bringing success and confidence to those I teach, and I aim to inspire my pupils to have a real interest for the subject!

Teaching Experience:

I have regularly helped younger siblings with English homework, and given them the confidence to become braver and more vocal in the classroom. I am able to clearly explain exam and revision technique - which is often the key to improving grades.
I have previously set up a school drama club, and have led games and prepared lessons for groups of children. I enjoyed the challenge and process of this hugely, and know from verbal feedback that they did too! I hugely value the time I spent with these students and their inquisitive minds. As a result of my commitment to this club I was awarded the school's Eunice Hobbs prize for Initiative.
During my degree I was given the role as music teacher, singing teacher and pianist for one of the productions that was being put on. I enjoyed this hugely, and found the work to be incredibly satisfying. The group was made up of university students who had a huge range of musical abilities, and I feel that I was able to attend to each individual's needs by giving clear explanations and ways to think about music.

Tutoring Approach:

I graduated from Guildhall School of Music & Drama with a First Class Honours Degree, and feel that this is a wonderful foundation for tutoring. I feel passionate about helping pupils with Drama, English, or Music, and believe that I would be able to give excellent tutoring lessons. I feel very confident in one-to-one teaching scenarios, and believe I am sensitive to an individual's needs. I do not believe in "one size fits all", and am a great fan of finding out the right way and approach for everyone. Having rigorously gone through GCSEs, A-Levels and then a degree myself, I know how vital it is to feel confident in your own revision technique. I think it is also important to have a sense of fun when learning - and I believe I can bring this to the lesson!

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different when it comes to learning. Some students enjoy 1 to 1 and some students love group learning. My approach is to create an individual style for each student and work with you to meet your learning needs.

The key to any success is READING and then having the opportunity to discuss the subject in detail to analyse the the debate.

In addition to this, it is important to develop skills and understanding of your subject area so that you are aware of the key areas of policy and theory and how theory is applied to policy in the real world.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am from Paris, I have a honour degree in Arts from the University of Edinburgh (2003), and have been making painting and ceramics since then.

I love culture: the arts, music and literature so I am currently learning German and improving my Spanish because I want to explore more European cities.

My current favourite writers are George Sand and Elena Ferrante.

Teaching Experience:

I trained as a secondary school French teacher 10 years ago in Wales.

Since then I have been teaching French to undergraduate students, to adults in evening classes also at university and in private lessons, and to pupils in one to one after-school lessons.

I have been a supply teacher in secondary schools in South Wales so I am familiar with GCSE and A-level requirements.

I currently live in Scotland, Glasgow.

Tutoring Approach:

After approaching my student on her/his chosen areas of focus (GCSE pupils can expect to improve their writing skills as much as or even more than their speaking skills, while professional people may prefer to be more at ease first with their conversational skills) I try and devise lesson plans that are well-focused and engaging.

I use recent and stimulating resources such as French films, documentaries, online blogs and magazines.

Having done some acting in my early twenties I like to take inspiration from the feeling of acting and improvising. this does not mean that my students end up reciting impressive French speeches standing up in a cafe, but rather that I have a mind that naturally tries to create situations that lend themselves to role playing or improvising moods, etc.

Subjects
  • French
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am currently pursuing my PhD on topic "CRM for Small businesses in service sector in UK". I have obtained Masters degree in Computational Molecular Biology from University of Manchester. I like to share my knowledge and my learning to different people.

I believe in teaching in a such a way that you are ready to face the challenge out in the real world.
And I always try to build a bond so that my students have relationship with me not only for now, but for future as well.

Personal Description:
I'm a young aspiring graduate petroleum engineer with a passion to be the best at what i do. I also have a passion for helping people get through challenges especially in areas I think I have the ability to.

Teaching Experience:

I have various informal experiences of teaching. My formal experience of teaching dates back to 2012 where I was the Grade 5 Mathematics and science teacher at an elementary school in Lagos Surburb, Nigeria, West Africa. I also used this period to do some private tutoring for various client teaching children that were preparing for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in giving people what they need to understand the concept. I believe that a keen understanding of any problem matter is the key to solving not just that problem but tougher and more challenging ones that may be encountered in the future. I believe in a simple to gradually increasing complexity of problem tackling, ensuring that key concepts areas are well understood from simplified ones.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate from the University of Kent - I graduated with a First Class Honours in German. I live in Sidcup (South East London) and currently have a part time job in London, but am looking to use my German skills a lot more than I do currently. I enjoy reading, watching films and listening to music!

Teaching Experience:

During my university studies, I did a year abroad in Germany where I worked as a Teaching Assistant. I helped teach English to pupils aged 10 to 18 and did private tutoring with two pupils. I successfully tutored each of them in both English and German!

Tutoring Approach:

I listen to what the pupil wants, and plan my lessons accordingly. At first, I will try a variety of different exercises in order to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie, and work both with their textbooks and create my own exercises to help them enhance their skills, focussing on where they most need improvement e.g. pronunciation, different aspects of grammar or missing vocabulary.

Personal Description:
I hold a BSc (Hons) Mathematics, 1st class from the University of Manchester as well as an MA Music, Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music.

I grew up in Watford, studying at Watford Grammar School for Boys. I achieved 4 A Levels grade A including Maths and Further Maths, 1 AS Level grade A, and 11 GCSEs, 9 grade A* and 2 grade A.

I am a mathematics tutor and freelance classical musician (viola), with my work featuring performance with top UK orchestras, chamber music and outreach work as well as a teaching portfolio working with children and adults.

In my spare time, I enjoy astronomy, cycling and playing the euphonium with the Army Reserve Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently relocated to Liverpool and am looking to build up a tutoring profile here. In previous academic years I have had the following distribution of students:

2015-16: 7 A Level, 5 GCSE
2014-15: 3 A Level, 5 GCSE

All of my students have achieved over and above their expected grades.

In addition, I teach the violin and viola to children and adults, from beginner to diploma level. I should clarify that I don't teach academic music, rather am happy teaching instrumental music to the age groups listed. I am able to combine mathematics tuition and music teaching for individuals who would be interested.

Tutoring Approach:

For those studying A Level and GCSE Mathematics, it is very important to be able to identify areas which require work and bring these to the attention of a tutor; my approach to mathematics tutoring is a student lead approach. I also like to instigate discussions about general study and revision technique which can be transferred to other subjects as well. Given the appropriate contact time with me, students are always prepared for exams well in advance.

I offer an introductory session at no fee. This is for myself, the student and parent(s) to get to know each other, and also to discuss where the student would like help.

My music teaching approach is focused on general musicianship and encouraging the enjoyment of playing. I do work on grades with my students but prefer to allow them to develop to a point that I know they will be able to pass their exams easily. Many students who are taught with too much of a focus on grades give up and stop playing altogether, and this is the reason for my approach.

Personal Description:
I have just moved from London to Leamington Spa, where I taught English Functional Skills for the London Borough of Waltham Forest for 10 years.

First and foremost, I attempt to create a trusting relationship through empathy and listening skills which enables me to identify the student's needs and to develop strategies to support them. I teach skills to assist the development of independent learning: research, reading and proof reading strategies and writing skills including grammar, spelling and structure.

I believe in the importance of being able to communicate in writing effectively as it is empowering in many ways. It enables us to apply for jobs and perform successfully in jobs as most involve writing in various forms. I have worked in arts administration as a Development Co-ordinator at The Whitechapel Art Gallery where I needed to write letters and brochures persuasively to attract donations and sponsorship of exhibitions. Many job roles involve creating marketing materials as does running your own business. Being able to articulate and write a complaint letter is also empowering. So hi-lighting how necessary writing skills are can help to motivate students.

Also I am passionate about reading fiction, English and foreign literature, as well as poetry and belong to two book clubs. Literature gives us an imaginative insight into other lives, emotions and stories which helps to enrich our own lives. I have enjoyed going to the RSC in Stratford and the live screenings of plays at The Spa Centre. So for me the transformational power of the arts is what gives life meaning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught for 10 years English/Literacy in community centres for Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service and provided 1:1 Dyslexia Support. Most recently I completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Adult Literacy at The Institute of Education, University College London. I have also taught adults with learning difficulties and have supported children with special needs at primary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working on a 1:1 basis with students rather than a classroom situation as I can get to know them more and build up a personal relationship enabling me to understand their needs and design strategies to support them and build up their confidence. I believe that you need to devise with the student their main goals and then break them down into smaller achievable steps and stages.
