Personal Description:
I have recently returned home to Northern Ireland after completing my PGCE and 6 years teaching experience in Newcastle Upon Tyne. In my career to date I have worked as classroom teacher as well as Head of Spanish. I have had specific responsibility for teaching Spanish and French to GCSE level and Spanish to A-level. In recent years I have had 93% A*-C success at GCSE level and 100% A*-C at A-level.

I hold a joint BA Hons degree in French and Spanish from Trinity College Dublin, which I achieved in 2009. During my time at Trinity I spent a year "off-books" in order to teach English as a Foreign Language Assistant in France and I spent 3 months studying in Spain. These experiences allowed me to immerse myself in the cultures and improve my fluency in each language.
I love languages and have always had a passion for learning languages and teaching.

Teaching Experience:

Park View School, August 2012 - August 2016: Teacher of French & Spanish, Head of Spanish
All Saints College, January 2011 - August 2012: Subject Leader of Spanish
Queen Elizabeth High School, September 2010 - January 2011: Teacher of French to A-level and Spanish

I am trained to teach both French and Spanish to A-level, however in recent years I have gained more experience teaching A-level Spanish. I have taught Spanish at both AS and A2 level, with specific responsibilities for teaching grammar, topic work, speaking skills, essay writing skills, and the regional topic for which I developed and completed three successful Spanish Exchanges with a school in Ciudad Real, Castilla-La Mancha. To date I have 100% A*-C success rate at AS and A2 level.
I have also taught French and Spanish to GCSE level and I have carried out numerous speaking exams. I work hard to ensure that my pupils are fully prepared and confident before sitting a speaking exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe I am a friendly, approachable individual and I have been commended for my positive rapport and warm relationship with my pupils. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, however I feel that one-to-one tutoring provides the opportunity to concentrate wholly on possible weaknesses and work together to overcome and master the language.

Personal Description:
I live in Cheshire and have two children. I enjoy camping, the outdoors & the countryside in general. We like to travel around the UK, especially Scotland & Southern Ireland. I have enjoyed being successful professionally & in my academic career & I am always looking for new opportunities to make the best use of the skills I've developed over the years. I enjoy working out and train most days. I have an interest in numismatics (coins and paper money).

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Further & Higher education for the past 17 years & I am Head of Subject & Senior Lecturer at a College with Beacon status in the North West. My results are 10% above national benchmark & I am an examiner with a leading examination board. Last year, I carried out some regular private tuition & was able to turn E grades into A grades at A2 level. This was very satisfying for me & the student concerned was able to go on & take a degree in Law, something he wouldn't have been able to do otherwise.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to treat every student as an individual & seek to respond to their individual learning needs. I offer a very reliable, high standard of service & see us as working together to achieve a common objective, that of success in the summative examinations. Being an examiner for sociology is also a real advantage for my tutees too. More recently, I have been working with Nelson Thornes and AQA to provide 50 online Sociology learning resources for publication in support of their new A2 student book. I now also offer online tuition via Skype voice and video call at a discounted hourly rate for block bookings, hence the £24 rate.

Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Julia, I am a qualified and experienced French native teacher. I have a passion for languages. I am fluent in arabic, and can speak Spanish and Italian as well. However, I do think one should only teach a language one masters which is why I only teach French. I am an enthusiastic, fun and reliable person.
I teach all ages, all levels and prepare students for a wide range of examinations such as GCSE, Baccalauréat, A-level, DELF and DALF. I teach children in a fun way and casual learners according to their needs and levels.

Having studied and worked in marketing and B to B in France before, I enjoy very much teaching Business Fench to professionals willing to have better jobs opportunities or just willing to be able to communicate with French companies, customers or colleagues. My experience also includes medical French for doctors/nurses. I travel to companies for the group classes. Please ask for price.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching at the university of Essex where I have been working for 5 years and in a secondary school. In the secondary school, I am in charge of Year 10. Year 11 and Y12 who are taking their GCSE and As level so I have an excellent experience with exams! I taught in secondary schools, in Harwich High-School and Thomas Gainsborough school in Sudbury.
Previously,I worked in a Primary school in South of France for 1 year with 5 to 11 years old children and I taught French in a private school near Colchester for 1 year where I used to teach children in a fun and creative way using role-plays, songs, art and crafts....

I have experience in teaching French to native/bilingual speakers as well so my method will be adapted to your profile

Tutoring Approach:

I think tutoring is particularly interesting and rewarding. My experience with all levels and nationalities is a real strength. I tailor the lessons to your needs, goal and level. We all have different ways of learning and what works for one can be of no help for someone else so I am always looking for the best way to succeed for each of my students. I like using games and fun activites when appropriate with children but also with adults! Learning a language is a challenge, that of course can be boring, but it can be very fun and rewarding as well. I do think everyone can learn a language!

Personal Description:
I came to London in 2005 and I live in Walthamstow,London. I have always liked Art and Foreign Languages. I am passionate about Art and Crafts, and I have discovered my enthusiasm for French language when I started tutoring French a few years back. I work in a secondary school teaching Art and French and my colleagues and students would describe me as friendly, approachable with a good sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Art and Design for four years prior to working as a learning support for 6 years. I have been working as a learning support, with Lead role in Literacy and I have worked as a Cover Supervisor for two years .I believe that teaching is not only about passing on the knowledge of a subject, it is also about connecting with the students to try and make them work to the best of their abilities. I have also tutored French in a private tutoring centre to students who have never learnt French before and within 2 and a half years, I have put them through their GCSE exams and they have got amazing results from A* - B. I have also been tutoring French at home for a few years and again my students came out with great results. I am fully aware of the curriculum and have experience in Writing, Speaking , Listening and the criteria for Controlled Assessment. References can be available on request.
I also run Art and Crafts workshop online and at home. I can teach a range of crafts such as stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking including various techniques. A sample of my crafts tutoring can be available on requests.
I am currently working as a full time Art and French teacher in a secondary school. With all the changes in the curriculum, it is fundamental that tutoring Art or French, are tailored to each individual to enable them to progress in each lesson so each pupil can reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my lesson plans according to each individual as I believe that every student's learning is different. It is important for me to be able to communicate with my students, to understand their needs and to plan an Individual Educational Plan (IEP)to accommodate the requirements of each pupil. Resources are provided to reinforce learner's knowledge and homework is set weekly. Tests are held regularly to assess student's progress. Furthermore, I believe that regular contact with parents help ensure that student's targets are met accordingly.
PS: I have a CRB as I work in a Mainstream Secondary School. Reference from my current school or previous school can be available on request.

Personal Description:
For over 8 years I have been teaching English, Literacy and Reading. My aim is to help each student reach their potential through tailored lessons designed to build confidence as well as make learning enjoyable. I own an Enhanced CRB which is clear.

Teaching Experience:

For over 8 years I have been teaching English, Literacy and Reading from in and out of my own home.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to help each student reach their potential through tailored lessons designed to build confidence as well as make learning enjoyable. I have a strong belief that for people of all ages, learning can be fun, and if you enjoy the process, you are much more likely to learn something!

I am extremely enthusiastic when it comes to teaching. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing a student achieve what they set out to do, be it a particular grade they need to obtain or a skill they need to develop. Often lessons tend to last a little longer than the initial hour as I am simply not in this for the money- my satisfaction comes from watching my students achieve and I don't mind eating into my own time by a few more minutes to make sure that happens.

Due to several requests from current and former students, I am now also happy to discuss teaching other subjects outside of English. Please simply give me a call to discuss this.

Testimonials:

'David is extremely hard working and one of the most enthusiastic people we've seen when it comes to teaching. It quickly got to the point where our son was looking forward to his lessons and was disappointed when when we had to reschedule the odd one. Would def recommend.'

-Mohammed, Father of Hassan

'Really happy with David's work. Got results and lessons seemed to be very creative.'

-Janet, Mother of Luke

'Let me start off by saying that I was embarrassed to approach a tutor at first. I have had reading and writing difficulties since I was very young but David ensured full anonymity and built my confidence to a very high level. He has been teaching me once a week for 2 years now. I have learnt more than I ever did at school in a much shorter space of time.'

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, qualified and experienced teacher. I am a native German. I moved to the UK in 1991 just after meeting my future husband. We have three grown-up children, and education and parenthood have been very much part of our lives for many years.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in secondary schools and colleges in the UK for over 15 years as a German teacher and Head of German. I have conducted GCSE and A-level oral exams for the WJEC examination board, written several syllabuses for German GCSE and A-level groups and organised pupil exchange visits over 6 years. The academic work and pastoral care at the school I worked at was rated "excellent" by Estyn. At present, I am working at home with pupils who are eager to improve their grades at Key stage 3, GCSE and A-level, with adults who are relocating to Germany, and with architects, employees in the car industry and Financial advisers (Business German) who have business relations with Germany. I also teach children at primary level, who have moved to Britain from Germany and are keen to practise German with games, stories, songs and puppet theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

Language tuition has been my passion for a long time and allows me to be supportive and creative, motivating pupils and believing in their abilities. One-to-one tuition is very productive, because it adapts to the individual learner's needs easily. My experience in schools and with exams has given me the knowledge of standards required for GCSE and A-level exams, and many pupils have commented on how much improvement they have seen in their school work, and in their confidence, as a result of our lessons. My aim is to make language learning enjoyable, and therefore I always encourage a warm and relaxed atmosphere for lessons. My lessons are structured, integrating all four language skills speaking, listening, reading and writing, and also include grammar, pronunciation, games, video clips, and lots of authentic material and cultural knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and approachable teacher and tutor who has moved out of full time Science teaching to develop other interests but still wishes to help individuals meet their educational needs and goals. I have been tutoring on and off for over 25 years, been a full time teacher for about 5 years and also had a career in the NHS as a medical Physicist at three London teaching hospitals.

I enjoy photography and digital art, walking and DIY.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in one capacity of other since 1990 in the NHS and at University College London. This involved teaching radiographers and post graduate students.
My tutoring experience runs from around the same time with GCSE and A level students

I completed my PGCE at Sussex University in 2010 and have been working as a secondary school Science teacher since then.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to understand the strengths and weakness of the student and customise a plan for how to achieve their goals using a 'blended' approach to help overcome areas of uncertainty or lack of confidence. This includes the individual's learning style and their approach to education. Where relevant I like to use visual and digital resources to help with learning and to secure understanding and also to help with difficult topic areas and homework tasks in the current school curriculum.

Personal Description:
I am an Oxbridge graduate and dedicated teacher and tutor of Classics. I completed my undergraduate degree at Robinson College, University of Cambridge and hope to soon complete an MA in History of Art. Outside of my teaching and tuition work, I am a firm believer in lifelong learning and am currently attending an Italian evening class, to improve my understanding of the language.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher, holding a PGCE from the University of Cambrige and Qualified Teacher Status. I have 3 years of teaching experience, including at two top grammar schools (The Tiffin Girls' School and Chelmsford County High School for Girls). I have taught Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation across all Key Stages, and have extensive experience of preparing students for public examinations. My most recent cohort of students achieved 78% at A* and 100% at grades A* - B at GCSE; 100% of my A Level students achieved grades A* - B. In addition, I have 5 years of experience of private tuition, ranging from preparing students for university applications in Classics to building confidence in both Latin and Greek for younger pupils. I have prepared numerous students for university and Oxbridge applications and specialise in interview preparation.
I have also taught at Latin Camp for the last 3 years during the summer holidays, as I am a firm believer in every student having the ability and opportunity to learn Latin - I am dedicated to my subject and enjoy the opportunity to share ideas and resources with my colleagues, to ensure that I continue to develop my teaching practice.
My particular teaching research interests focus on tailoring language tuition to students who do not speak English as a first language and developing understanding of learners from different cultures, in order to ensure that they achieve their academic best.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to cater for the needs of each student as an individual learner; no two students are the same and, from my experience both as a classroom teacher and as a private tutor, I understand the importance of preparing tasks that will help, stretch and challenge the individual. I am a firm believer in ensuring that the basics of language learning are strong, with a focus on grammatical knowledge and understanding. I understand that students have different barriers to learning and aims and ambitions they wish to realise, and I ensure to take these into consideration when preparing lessons and learning activities.
When learning Latin and Greek, recall of accidence, syntax and vocabulary is crucial to ensure that reading Classical texts, the aim of learning ancient languages, comes naturally. I am very patient and understand from my own learning of Classical languages that everyone has their own particular areas of difficulty; I aim to help students through understanding tricky constructions and reading challenging texts with patience, humour and dedication. For students entering public examinations, past paper practice is key and I ensure that students are as well prepared as they can be. For Oxbridge applicants, interview practice and contemplating issues surrounding the subject, along with experience of reading classical texts under pressure in a test or interview environment, is important to ensure that they shine during the interview process.
Regardless of the level that the student is working at, be it beginning learning Latin or Greek, sitting their Classical Civilisation A Level or preparing for an Oxbridge interview, I am a firm believer in drawing out the full potential of all my tutees and aim to help students achieve their very best.
