Personal Description:
I'm a BBC television journalist, with a science background. I have to Research new subjects from scratch in order to make informative programmes therefore I can take any subject matter and work hard to have a good understanding of it in a very short space of time.

My skill is teaching people new things - especially helping Students to understand subjects that they have always found difficult. I understand that everyone learns in different ways and that a single method of teaching doesn't work with everyone. By getting to know my student's personality, I discover the ways in which they learn, which means that I can work out the best way to help them to understand new subjects.

I'm patient and good humoured and am good at making people feel relaxed in my company, however I will push to ensure that the students take their work seriously.

Teaching Experience:

Eight years experience tutoring students at home and online - aged 8 upwards. Tutorial help with coursework, essay writing, exam revision and preparation, and practical film making. Tutoring sessions include tips on how to maximise exam marks.

Three months tutoring children in basic numeracy and literacy in the Philippines.

Two years as a cub scout leader - designing weekly classes and running activity sessions for 24 children, aged 8-11.

Tutoring Approach:

I take complicated information and unravel it so that it can be conveyed in simple terms and understood by people of all ages.

I teach a range of subjects in a way that makes them simple to understand and in a style adapted to each student's personality. I'm also skilled at writing reports and essays, particularly understanding all the applied thinking that needs to be demonstrated to gain extra marks.

I love teaching and pass on my enthusiasm to my students. I believe that it's essential to build up the pupil's confidence in their own ability to learn in order for them to become more interested and approach learning in a more focused way.

I always supply the students with extra Q&A revision papers so that they can continue learning outside tutorials.

Personal Description:
Before coming into teaching, I worked in the Music Industry as a professional session singer. The work was varied and diverse. I sang with many named artistes and toured on an international level. I also have extensive experience in the recording studio. In 2005, I deceided to 'change direction' and studied Performance Arts, gaining a BA Hons Degree in the subject in 2008.
I studied Shakespeare, Stanislavski and many other drama practioners and methods.
I feel that because of my life experience, I bring a very friendly approach to my teaching. Also, being a 'mature student' myself has added to my understanding of needing alittle 'help' at times.
My approach is a mixture of theory and practical. I like to make sure that my student understands where he/she is approaching the given subject - be it an acting method or a scripted reading.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating with honours, I went on to gain a Post Grad teaching degree (PGCE). I have been teaching singing privately for the past eight years and started teaching drama and performing arts since 2006. Whilst doing my PGCE, I was employed as a part-time lecturer for performance arts at Salford University teaching 2nd year degree students.
I have taught at a private performing schools whose ages range from 6 to 18 years old and at private acting academy that is attached to ITV studios in Leeds.
Because of all my experience, I am able to cover three subjects to any level - drama, singing and Musical Theatre.

Since 2013, I have been tutoring at my home. Please note: I have cats and dogs so be aware of this if you have any allergies.

Tutoring Approach:

On our first meeting, I like to find out just where the student is at in their given subject; what their past experiences are and what their expectations are of having extra tuition. An understanding of their strengths and weaknesses is also important to find out at an early stage so that together, we can plan a way forward.
I am a friendly, patient and easy-going person with a very good sense of humour but I take my teaching very seriously and remain quite passionate about drama and performing arts on the whole.
I always like to make sure that the student leaves my class with full understanding of the work we have done and will ensure that any questions or concerns are addressed before the end of the lesson.

  • Drama
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a French native living in the UK since 2011. I am enjoying my new life in London.

Currently workin as a Care Assistant in a nursing home, I am also studying to get a teaching qualification. I have been doing one-to-one tuition for a few years now.

My students usually describe me as friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and dedicated (based on students' satisfaction survey carried out by the school)

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor in French since 2012.

I have worked with people of all ages and abilities from primary school children to adult learners.

I have helped many young people improve their level in French and achieve great results for their GCSE'S and A Level's.

I also taught evening classes with a private Language School for one year in 2012 and have gained an amazing experience in teaching. I am really enjoying sharing my knowledge and seeing my students improving, asking useful questions, and having fun after all, speaking a new language as if they had always known it.

Tutoring Approach:

Different abilities and learning difficulties are all taken into consideration to give each student a personalised work plan to meet their needs and expectations in an approach that is non judgmental.

Students are not been made to "feel stupid" about their mistakes but encouraged to learn from them.

The advantages of one-to-one tuition :

-Work on a specific skill (eg. Speaking, listening, writing or grammar)
-Learn from scratch at your own pace
-Boost your confidence (eg. You may be shy to speak in your classroom, or maybe you learned French at school years ago and need some extra help before a trip to France)
-Help your child to learn faster at school in early years.

Regular practice and commitment are strongly advised for best learning results.

NB : I travel to the tutee for free up to 7 miles radius, an additional fee may be required for longer travel distance.

Personal Description:
An approachable and empathetic manager in my former profession as an IT consultant, I am now a qualified English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher who is able to encourage and motivate people to achieve their goals. I am highly organised and enjoy being creative. I make the most of my advanced IT skills to produce materials to meet the learning needs of my students. I have a lifelong enthusiasm for language, culture and meeting new people from all walks of life, to learn and share experiences.

Teaching Experience:

I achieved my Trinity CertTESOL in January 2015. The certification process included teaching both group and individual lessons for a range of abilities from pre-intermediate to advanced. I was thoroughly stimulated by this course and enjoyed it immensely. I am now capable of going into a classroom and producing a well-thought out, appropriate and stimulating lesson that will help students of English to achieve their linguistic aims. In my former career as an IT consultant I coached, trained and mentored junior staff.

Since certification I have been fortunate to be employed by Language Schools in Winchester and Bath and have taught teenagers in multi- and mono-lingual groups. I have also taught English for Special Purposes with individual adults including Legal English and Business English.

Tutoring Approach:

I see the learning experience as a partnership between the teacher and the learner. I particularly enjoy working with an individual learner as I am able to focus on their personal needs and at our first session I will work with you to determine what you would like and need to achieve and to design a programme tailored just for you. In my Trinity CertTESOL course I was awarded an A grade for the needs analysis assignment.

Personal Description:
I have got Engineering degree qualification, which makes me the most appropriate tutor for mathematics subject. I have studied as well trained the simplest mathematics as well as complex one. So, I know the subject's concepts, ideas and problems inside out. I can discuss and introduce the rigor of real-life applications. I can make learning relevant to students' interests, thus create more students who actually care about what they are learning

Teaching Experience:

I have got a 10 years of teaching Experience. I have been teaching maths since at all Level since 10 years. Currently i have been teaching A-Level, year 4, KS-2 maths in UK.
I am very much aware of National Curriculum of UK and know about the key stages and the assessments, the student would go through after completing each key stage. I always prefer to discuss child's progress with his/her parents by the end of each assessment. That would assist me to meet the expectations of parents.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to build strong, personal relationships with students, because I believe personal relationship is foundation to student success. The more associated the student feels, the more teacher earns respect and consideration, the key ingredients for students to learn well. I teach to the student's strength that helps me to minimize the student weaknesses. I always listen and communicate early and often with parents, that helps me to map a better plan for success.
I always believe that, the better lesson planning by tutor leads to student success. I always plan my every session keeping these 6 points in my mind.
1. Outline learning objectives
2. Develop the introduction
3. Plan the specific learning activities (the main body of the lesson)
4. Plan to check for understanding
5. Develop a conclusion
6. Create a practical timeline

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
