Personal Description:
I am married with two young children. I enjoy all sports and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I am Head of Chemistry at a large 14-18 Leicestershire Upper School. I have taught at this school for 20 years. I teach GCSE and A-Level Chemistry. I have about 18 years tutoring experience with much success. As well as teaching AQA A-level and GCSE Chemistry, I have tutored OCR, Salters and EDEXCEL. Indeed, one of my private students achieved 100% in an A-level Chemistry module last year and this year another student achieved 100% in an AQA GCSE Chemistry module. My students consistently achieve over 90% in examinations.
I do tutor all abilities and all my students reach their potential and beyond.
I am Principal Examiner for IGCSE Chemistry (Foundation) for Cambridge International Examinations. I also set GCSE Chemistry Questions and check question papers before they are sat.
Recently, I have been tutoring students in preparation for the Chemistry component of the GAMSAT Examination - used as a route into medicine by some students.
I also use Skype and email for online tutoring. Recently I have been tutoring a student using Skype. This has proved very successful and means that I can now offer tuition to students without any travelling involved or who live just too far away from me to travel. If you would like to try this as an option please get in touch with me. I can definitely recommend tutoring by Skype - try it if you live too far to travel.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the key to excellent examination results is confidence in being able to tackle the questions set. I, therefore, focus on passed papers alongside the teaching of the theory. I expect the students to ask about parts they do not understand and build on this whilst building up their understanding and knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Modern Foreign Languages, EFL and ESOL teacher. I have lived and worked in Germany (for four years in Munich and Augsburg doing aupairing, shop and office work), in Spain (teaching English for four years in Barcelona, Feuerteventura and Sevilla), and England (doing administrative work and teaching, the latter for over 15 years).

I enjoy meeting people of other nationalities and exchanging ideas about different cultures and experiences. In my free time I enjoy taking part in conversation groups in Spanish, German and English, the latter with people of a variety of cultural backgrounds. I also enjoy watching European films and TV programmes both in the languages I know and in ones that I do not. In my quiet time I enjoy reading novels both in English and in Spanish and German. In the future I would like to learn Italian!

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as an EFL teacher since 1994 - teaching both abroad and in England to multi-lingual and monolingual classes. In Spain I taught children from 5 years old and businessmen in company, while in England I have taught children from 12 years old at residential summer schools and adults from 17 to 75 years of age in term time. I have also had some experience in teaching both German and Spanish at secondary schools.

I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at an FE college in Nottingham for the last fifteen years. I taught general English with classes in grammar, vocabulary and the four language skills. I also taught Study Skills, Academic English (EAP) and prepared students for IELTS examinations.

I am also experienced in preparing ESOL students for exams from Entry 1 to Level 1 and CAE. In addition, I have taught EAP (Academic English) to pre-sessional students at university.

I am currently teaching two German evening classes a week to adults and doing supply teaching in local secondary schools during the day.

I have given private tuition to adults and children in Spanish, German and EFL. I have also assisted school children with their reading and writing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in student centred, active, task based learning. I am happy to teach one -one classes or couples/small groups (each additional student will be charged a rate of 50% of the hourly rate)

I am happy to teach in my home or travel to the clients house (for which there would be an additional charge to cover travel costs).

Personal Description:
I moved from Henley-on-Thames to Bampton in October 2011. In 2012, I worked three days a week in an independent girls' school in Exeter, providing one-to-one support for a girl in Year 9 and also taught English Literature to Year 7 & Year 13 classes.

I have a passion for the written word and its performance in poetry and drama.

I am a mother with three grown-up children and a grandmother, and very interested in how young people view and contribute to the world in which they live.

I have an MA (with Merit) in Postcolonial Studies from SOAS, University of London (2015) and a First Class Honours BA degree in English and Classics from the University of Reading (1996).

I can offer lessons in my home in Bampton or online via email and Skype. Skype has proved to be a highly successful way of teaching and I now teach across the globe using this medium,

Teaching Experience:

In addition to working in a school in Exeter (outlined above), I have been a highly successful English tutor for many years, originally based in the South-East. Most of my client base is private but I also work for two top London tuition agencies. I am a highly experienced tutor and currently have students in English Language & Literature from KS1 to 'A' level/IB. I also work with undergraduates & postgraduates in various disciplines, providing guidance in the structure of their essays, particularly dissertations, and academic writing. Additionally, in 2014/15 I tutored the complete AQA GCSE Classical Civilisation syllabus to a Year 9 student via Skype, who obtained an A as her final grade.

I also have experience in helping adults with their business English and have written marketing copy for the commercial sector.

Tutoring Approach:

When I tutor a student, I search for a 'tailor-made' way to help increase their self-esteem and confidence. This enhances the learning they already receive in the classroom. The study of texts offers student and tutor alike not only an opportunity to develop communication one with another but also insight into the life experiences of others, both in past generations and the wider world today.

I have helped numerous students to achieve higher than their predicted grades at both GCSE, IB and 'A' level and have many excellent references available. My students have come from the public, private and state school sectors and with varying levels of academic ability.

Personal Description:
Hello, I live in Sunderland. I have a B A (Hons) degree and a Certificate in Education specialising in Maths and English and I have also attended relevant courses (for example in Dyslexia Awareness) and have a Counselling certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have had approximately 20 years experience of teaching English, Maths and I C T and this has included helping pupils to prepare for the SATs tests. I have worked with children and adults on a one to one basis and in groups and fully understand the needs of both.

I have had extensive experience teaching in schools and am therefore familiar with the requirements of the national curriculum key stages 1,2 3 and 4.

I also have a vast array of resources and past exam papers and can also create resources that are tailor made for a specific pupil.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working creatively and will tailor learning to the particular interests of the pupil if necessary as I feel that this makes the work more interesting and meaningful for them. I have established excellent relationships with pupils in the past and have a sensitive, caring and thoughtful approach.

In the first session I carry out an assessment in order to get an idea of the needs of the pupil and use this as a trial session. Pupils don't have to continue unless they are happy with everything.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic Italian teacher and a language professional seeking a position in a challenging school environment. I recently graduated in Italian Studies and I have a true passion for the Italian language and literature. My studies and my travels all around Italy gave me the chance to widen my knowledge about all aspects of the Italian culture from the linguistic to the historical point of view. My professional ambition is to contribute to the diffusion and promotion of the Italian culture: teaching my native language is the way that helps me better reach this goal. I have had different kinds of teaching experiences over years from one-to-one tuition to children and mature students in Italy, to Italian lessons to adults in England. I have wide experiences in lesson planning and schemes of work, preparing teaching materials and activities, taking care of students needs and designing new methods to keep their studies always interesting and interactive. I plan my lessons using the communicative methods in a creative way, using books, handouts, audio and video materials, games, newspaper articles and even literary texts.

QUALITIES

I am a goal oriented and a motivated individual
I have excellent interpersonal skills
I am good communicator
I possess high integrity and strong organizational skills
I have good customer service skills
I have effective influencing skills
I'm an active, creative and charismatic person who loves to work hard
I'm keen and curious to learn and I'm not content with mediocrity, instead I tend to give my best all the time
My professionalism, experience of living and working in different countries, my reliability, responsibility and friendly nature are assets I would bring to the work

Teaching Experience:

2004 - 2011 Italian teacher in Libreria dei Ragazzi was my own book shop (L2 - Liv. A, B and C)
2006 - 2011 Voluntary italian teacher for teenges for ASF of siracusa
2012 Italian Teacher L2 in Ass. Dante Alighieri of Siracusa
2013 freelance tutor in Bristol for 14 students
2013/2014 freelance tutor in Bristol for 6 students and I'm teaching in private school "ISLE"

Tutoring Approach:

I am an Italian national who has been living in Bristol since September 2012 and having had a long time experience as an Italian teacher for students who have participated in the AFS Intercultural Program, it has not been difficult to insert myself here as a private Italian teacher.
I have a deep understanding of the GCSE program since I am tutoring three English secondary school students who are having difficulties with the Italian language. They lack interest and enthusiasm thus each lesson becomes more difficult but a challenge for me. I am looking for lessons that give them the enthusiasm they are missing and I must say that I am succeeding; sometime I see that the textbook is very dry and for this reason, my personal teaching materials often replaces the book.
My method is based a lot on grammar induction, stimulating conversations with the student, based on body movements for understand the action of the various stages of the exploration of the basic construction of the verb tense. A few years ago I enrolled in a workshop offered at the university about the use and choice of scene Italian films for understand better the Italian style-life and that has been quite useful to my teaching of Italian culture.
In Italy I have had own bookshop where I held my Italian lesson, therefore I know very well many documentaries and lectures mostly (or particularly) on Ancient Rome. Furthermore, I have been a guide in the city of Rome and I'm perfectly capable of organizing a cultural trips.
I look forward to being given an opportunity to work with your school: it is the type of environment I thrive in and to transmit my passion and love for my country and for my mother tongue is my main goal. This position will allow me to utilize my many skills and knowledge to support the language teacher's teaching and improve together the student's knowledge.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet and discuss my qualifications as well as to answer any questions you may have.

Personal Description:
Educated to postgraduate level, I have been involved in education for ten years and I am a qualified teacher of further education. I have taught English and Creative Writing for the past eight years; I have also been published by various publishers including Penguin, and I am a member of the Society of Authors.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in colleges and secondary schools for the last decade and I have been a private tutor since 2006. My main subject is English, although I also teach Creative Writing and Literacy. I have experience of working with primary and secondary school pupils, college and university students, as well as teaching adult education classes.

Personal Description:
I am a current A-level Chemistry and Biology examiner and moderator and author of A level Biology exam papers as well as textbooks and workbooks. I have worked in bioscience research and more recently in life science marketing and academic conference management in chemistry and biochemistry. I am a Chartered Chemist, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and committee member of the Protein & Peptide Science Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years' experience in one-to-one teaching, starting with giving undergraduate tutorials at the University of Oxford. I have been offering private tuition in A-level Chemistry and Biology for over 4 years.

I am able to tailor my teaching style to the individual needs of the student and to make best use of online and other electronic resources to help students to an understanding of the subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I start by identifying the particular needs of the student: do they have problems with understanding some or all of the subject; are there any areas of weakness that need to be strengthened; are there issues with exam technique that need to be addressed?

Even well taught students who have a good grasp of the subject can fail to achieve their full potential through poor exam technique. My earlier experience as a Chief Examiner, responsible for setting and marking A level exams, means that I have a detailed knowledge of the exam system and how students need to approach exam papers. My current examining experience has given me an insight into how to help students avoid unnecessary loss of marks by developing clear and rigorous approaches to their answers and to develop strategies to approach individual questions so as to maximise their performance.

Personal Description:
Having completed my legal qualification, I am now self-employed as an IT consultant and business owner with a bit of spare time in which I teach. I have previous teaching experience not only on a one-to-one basis but also in the classroom environment.
Having attended private primary and secondary schools with exceptional teaching standards throughout, I have gained a lot of valuable experience and understanding in how educators can take their students the extra mile to ensure that not only do they get the best grades but also to ensure that students get the best from their education in order to assist them later in life, whether that be at university or in their careers.

Teaching Experience:

Having taught in both classroom and one-on-one based environments, I have a broad range of skills and expertise when it comes to actually laying out the knowledge. Private tutoring has been something I have always done on the side and having taught in such environments for over four years, I have significant experience in teaching and learning styles which can assist students on a multitude of levels.
I have taught students from Year 9 to Year 13 and beyond, the main subjects taught being Maths, English, Sciences, Law, Business Studies and Information Technology.
University Level can also be catered for, subjects such as Law, Business Studies and IT/Computing.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to give students a relaxed environment in which they can learn and enjoy. Furthermore, I believe working outside of lessons is also a key part to learning and developing one's knowledge hence my use of short yet effective homework exercises which not only prepare students for the next session but also help reinforce what they have already learnt. Using these techniques, I am able to better assist the student(s) on where they may need some more assistance. Of course, every student is different and learning techniques always need to be worked upon in order to ensure that students get the most out of their sessions with me.

Personal Description:
I have a First Class Honours degree in Sociology from the University of Leeds. I'm fluent in Welsh and am offering tutoring in Welsh and English for Sociology up to and including degree level, and for Economics up to and including A level. I currently work as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor, mostly for students and academics, helping them express their ideas clearly and coherently in their work.

Teaching Experience:

In my role as proofreader, I am sometimes approached for advice on essay writing, often by people who have never been properly taught this key skill. Throughout my educational career, I have found that without this skill, an individual's progress can be severely restricted.
In the past I have also successfully tutored Sociology at AS level and was very pleased to see my tutees' grades improve when resitting exams. I feel that at least part of this success was due to the rapport we had built up from an early stage.
I am currently teaching an adult Welsh learner via Skype, which offers it's own challenges and opportunities.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the individual needs and circumstances of the tutee. We can work on homework, building on the feedback from their school teacher or university lecturer, as well as setting achievable targets to aim for. For this to work, it's vital for the tutee to feel comfortable and confident in the subject, and to find it interesting and relevant. There's nothing worse than reducing what can be a fascinating exploration into how the world works into a dry, and seemingly pointless exercise.

Regarding my tutoring rates: I prefer to work from home, but if that doesn't suit you then I can come to you. In such cases, I also ask for travel expenses to be paid as well. I do not have a car, so where possible this will be a bus or two.

I am also more than happy to meet in a public place (for adult tutees), or for the parents or guardian of the tutee to sit in on the lesson.

Personal Description:
I am currently an undergraduate History student at the University of Warwick. I have three years of tutoring experience in History, English and Politics. I achieved straight As and A*s at GCSE and have 3 A*s at A Level in English, History and Politics, as well as a B in Maths and a C in Classics.

Teaching Experience:

Tutor for GCSE students in English, History and Maths throughout my A Level studies and tutoring of A level students during my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are engaging and fun. My first lesson will always focus on establishing the current level of the student and establishing their long term goals. At the end of most weeks homework will be set to reinforce the things we have gone over during the lesson. I largely work from mark schemes and exam practices, as the long term goal of parents and students tends to be centred on exam results, but I also believe in the enjoyment of learning and will always focus on making the subjects I teach come to life.
