Personal Description:
I studied a BSc in Genetics at the University of Liverpool after which I worked in a microbiology laboratory. In 2008, I moved to Brighton, my home town, and completed a PGCE in secondary science with the University of Brighton. My teaching practice was in two West Sussex schools and I then worked a maternity contract as a Teacher of Biology in an all-girls school in central Brighton. Following this role, I worked as an Editor for a science publishing company based in London.

My most recent teaching position was as Teacher of Science at Bellerbys College, Brighton, an international school which prepares students for a university education in the UK. Since 2008, I have tutored many students from GCSE to University level providing guidance for exams and subject-specific support. I thoroughly enjoy imparting my understanding and love of science to others.

I have recently returned to England after living in Scotland undertaking an MSc in Psychology at the University of Abertay, Dundee, whilst also working as an Independent Advocate. Alongside this, having trained as a Yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga, I teach private and group Yoga classes.

Teaching Experience:

I hold a PGCE in secondary science from the University of Brighton and whilst on this course I taught 11-18 year olds at two West Sussex schools. I then worked for a year, on a maternity contract, as a Teacher of Biology at an all-girls school in central Brighton. For three years I worked a full-time position as a Teacher of Science at Bellerbys College, Brighton.

I have eight years tutoring experience, having tutored Undergraduate-Level, A-Level, AS-level, GCSE and mature students in both Biology and Chemistry. I have a very successful track record.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very friendly and approachable, and highly dedicated to my students -- I put in a lot of time and effort to ensure they are achieving their full potential. Within the sessions, I provide solid structure and tailor my approach to their individual needs. I suggest work for completion outside of sessions and provide the students with direction to develop their private approach to learning and revision.

I am able to explain difficult concepts in an easily digested way, making learning for them enjoyable and confidence-boosting. I have a clear, patient manner, and an excellent grasp of my subject specialisms.

Personal Description:
Qualified and experienced EFL specialist. I've been teaching English as a Foreign or Additional Language for 7 years to a wide age range and for a variety of specialist purposes.

I've been teaching in China for the last 3 years and will move back to the UK in July. I'm looking to start tutoring again from August so please get in touch if your looking for a tutor to start around then.

I'm a calm, organised and friendly person. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy learning English and to see the progress they are making.

I'm very interested in using technology in learning and for students who like learning with screens I will integrate other websites and apps into their homework and preparation.

I learned French in school and I'm continuing learning Chinese. I remember my language learning experience in school and in China, I know what a struggle it is to understand new grammar rules and how difficult it can be some weeks to make time to practice. I try to create an enjoyable and supportive environment in lessons so it is not stressful to make mistakes and students don't leave feeling tired out by learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught :
• English in south China for 3 years (2013-2016)
• English as a Foreign/Additional Language for 7 years (2009 - present)
• students preparing for IELTS and PTE
• students writing dissertations and theses
• beginner English speakers and native speakers
• students from 7 years old up to retired grandparents
• English for Business, Medicine and Engineering
• preparation for driving theory and food safety tests

Tutoring Approach:

I like to incorporate games, puzzles and challenges along with the content to help you engage with and better understand how to use the language. I'm very adaptable and will plan lessons based on what you want to achieve and how you like to learn.

For students getting ready for a test I can prepare a course of lessons with exam specific practice and a focus on the areas that most concern you.

For primary age students I have a variety of fun and engaging activities that get them excited about joining in lessons and learning English.

For university students I can give tailored lessons to help with essay, paragraph and sentence structure. I can also review grammar applied to the context of your subject to help you in your academic writing.

Personal Description:
I am a native Russian speaker. I have pursued a full time career as a language tutor for over 15 years, teaching students from 3 to 70. I graduated in Moscow as a teacher of chemistry and biology for secondary schools. I worked for a period of two years in a school in Moscow. I came to the UK and started working for a Russian oil company in London involved in translations. In addition I worked as required as a Russian translator for the Bank of England. In 1998 I co-wrote a book called "Talk Russian" for the BBC which was used in support of a Russian language programme that they were presenting.

Teaching Experience:

I commenced working in the education sector in the UK in 1998.I was engaged as a preparatory school teacher in an independent school, where I continued to work until 2004 and was tutoring in my free time.
I became a full time Russian language tutor in August 2004 for students of all ages, children, teens, adults who need extra support and business professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor each lesson to suit the student's needs. On the first lesson I identify areas for improvement and prepare an adapted teaching schedule to provide the maximum support for learning. My continuing approach depends on the type and needs of the student that I am tutoring. I have a total open mind, when I first meet them. The method of study will vary considerably .I make sure that the students enjoy the lessons and understand each step before progressing to the next one.
For very young students I use lots of games and activities to engage them and stimulate their mind, praising them with their progress.
I also tutor young people for their GCSE, A level, IB examinations, and undergraduates. I focus on improving their confidence and question answering technique in addition to providing them with a deeper understanding of conversational skills, grammar and comprehension of each topic. Closer to their exams, I concentrate on improving question techniques and creating links across the curriculum. I can also offer tuition of intensive exam preparation. My objective is to obtain the best results from each student.
For the business professionals, they generally need to improve their conversational skills, which I feature for them, but also include elements of grammar and spelling, to ensure a total understanding. It is important to help them find the way to learn.
I have access to several resources including Skype, where I utilise as support "Scribblar" and "Blackboard Collaborate" along with many other white board conference and collaboration tools, and use them accordingly.
I am a patient tutor and try to build trust with my students, which lead to fast progress, this being the top priority. It is a pleasure to pass on my knowledge to all of my students, and for me this is one of the most rewarding experiences ever.
I would really like to meet you and wish you the best for your Russian language studies. Please don't hesitate to contact me.

Personal Description:
Specialist in intensive Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology tuition, revision and exam preparation/technique.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught A-level full-time for 18 years and am an examiner for both subjects for a number of boards.

Many of my tutees have gone on to score 100% in units and after a comparatively short period of time improved their A-level score by several grades.

I also tutor undergraduates in Psychology and Anthropology, can advise on university choices and UCAS applications, provide university interview practice, and tutor prospective medic students for reasoning and written tasks for BMAT and UKCAT tests.

Testimonials from past and present students can be provided.

I hold a BSc in Anthropology from UCL and a PGCE from the Institute of Education, London.

Tutoring Approach:

As a specialist in exam-focused, intensive tuition, I provide tutees with clear, concise class notes and revision materials specifically aimed at ensuring they understand exactly what is required in answers, how to address exam board assessment criteria, how to structure essays, how to manage time in exams, and strategies and tactics to maximise success. Homework will be provided to tutees between sessions and marked as it would be by official examiners in live exams - thus, strengths and weaknesses can be addressed.

I am an engaging, approachable tutor who enjoys teaching and makes learning interesting, rewarding and enjoyable. However, I will make demands on tutees in line with their aspirations and be entirely honest with parents and tutees about progress.

Personal Description:
Fully qualified teacher of Japanese and Russian languages (all levels).

I prepare students for GCSE and A-level exams, as well as assess exam results for colleges. I also assist students with all levels of JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and TRKI (The Test of Russian as a Foreign Language).
I currently teach private individuals, groups, as well as some government organisations and corporate entities.

Being native in Russian, and an expert in the Japanese & English languages, I am acutely aware of the differences between English & Japanese and English & Russian languages, their specific capabilities, nuances and requirements.
I focus on teaching methods that are designed to make learning interactive and fun. I have developed my own strategy for delivering concise and meaningful learning methods to my students to assist their understanding. I enjoy teaching languages; it gives my students an opportunity to communicate with new people and expand their world.

I obtained a Master's Degree in diplomacy/international relations at a top-ranking Moscow University of International Relations (MGIMO) with Japanese and English languages.

In 2000 I undertook the internationally recognised Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) achieving a 'Level 1' pass (the highest attainable level).
From 2000 until 2010 I lived in Japan, and worked in a senior position for a leading Japanese technology company in Tokyo. During this time it afforded me an excellent 'real world' understanding of the Japanese language, its nuances and the fascinating Japanese culture.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Russian and Japanese languages for about 5 years.
References can be provided.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer tutoring on Japanese and Russian languages for all levels from beginner to advanced. My lessons are tailor-made for each person, so no matter what your level or interest, I can ensure you will achieve your goals. Therefore, if you are looking to learn for a holiday, or as a main language I'll be able to help!

Personal Description:
My name is Ian and I would be a female tutor. I was born in Malaysia and I have travelled to New Zealand and Australia for academic and research purposes. I have recently passed my PhD Viva and currently preparing for a major move to Orkney Islands. Even though English is not my first language, I have a great understanding in the subject of Organic Chemistry, I have ample tips for studying chemistry along side with basic knowledge in Math.

Teaching Experience:

I was a Campus Coach during my academic years in New Zealand. I would help 1st and 2nd year university students from our science department with their studies. This include giving them motivation to learn, tips for note-taking, managing time meeting all kind of assignments, giving advice on who they should approach for more academic and social help.

Recently, I was a lab demonstrator and Chemistry tutor during my academic year at University of Glasgow. I assisted students in the safe execution of the experiment, safe and proper operation and handling of lab equipment, chemicals and glassware. I was actively engaged with the students in discussions about the experiment. I also collected and grade pre-lab assignments in a timely manner, enter grades in record book, and circulate to give individual feedback to students. In addition, I was responsible for reporting any problems/incidents/inconsistencies immediately to the instructor and replenish/prepare any chemicals or supplies if asked upon with help from the technicians. I had the first-hand experience as a marker of assignments and lab reports, so I will know what to expect from a good to excellent answers to given questions.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique.

Feel free to drop me a line if you need help with your homework. If there is any single topic of Chemistry you need some clarification and understanding, don't delay!

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.
