I have ten years teaching experience in both primary and middle school with ages ranging from 5 to 12 years.

I have two teaching certificates (Primary teaching certificate and Middle School teaching certificate).

I have also taught psychology, journalism and media studies at colleges in the Maldives. I have also conducted workshops for the British council in Thailand on ways to teach young learners (EFL) using motivational methods such as songs, drama and mnemonics.

I have also conducted customer care workshops in resorts in the Maldives.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. I'm Anna, I'm Italian, and I'm the teacher you are looking for!

I am passionate about teaching Classical Studies (Latin and Ancient Greek), as well as Italian; I have extensive teaching experience with beginning to advanced students of all ages. I hold a Bachelor and a Master's degree in Classical Studies from the University of Palermo (Italy).

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years of experience in teaching grammar and literature (Italian, Ancient Greek and Latin), to individual students, and to small groups of students in private and public schools.

I've also worked as a City Lit Latin Tutor: teaching Latin Grammar rules, ligatures, word divisions and accents. Reading correctly any kind of Roman inscription, discerning the subject of the inscription (public, commemorative, religious, etc.). Assessment, marking, report writing and translation from Latin to English.

More specifically, I have experience in teaching students at a wide range of levels including GCSE, A-Level, and University, as well as preparing students for university entrance examinations. Furthermore, I enjoy working with children (6-13 years olds).

Tutoring Approach:

I'm approachable and very patient. I strive to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible and to create a comfortable atmosphere. I think that every student is unique, so I always try to find the best approach for everyone, using intuitive and yet humorous examples as much as possible.
I believe that the best way to teach is to make the subject interesting to the student and to pass on my passion.

Teaching Experience:

EXPERIENCE

- Teaching Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Business Studies/Management, Computing and Electronics

- Taught over 75 diverse students since 2009, usually for several months, providing support to students consistently through the academic year

- Experienced in tutoring degree level students

- Conducted remedial classes to Business Management undergraduates at the University of Cambridge

- Guided university level students in preparing first class coursework assignments and final year dissertations under tight deadlines

- Successfully supported two students in preparing for their Oxford University entrance exams

STUDENT FEEDBACK

"Umer explains things in a clear and concise manner and has made learning Physics ever so fun for me. He is punctual and continuously tailors his teaching style to suit the needs of the student he is teaching." - Kalpna, A2 Mathematics

"More often that not, students spend a considerable time studying unimportant things. Umer has the ability to channel the effort of his students in the right direction, resulting in effective exam preparation. If it wasn't for him, my son wouldn't have scored so well in his exams." - Carlos, A2 Mathematics, A2 Physics

"Umer often uses visual aids to explain abstract concepts. He takes time to understand the interests of his tutees and then uses something of their interest to explain complex phenomenon to them. This really keeps the child motivated and involved. Hats off to his teaching style." - Roma, AS Physics

"Umer has tutored me from grade 8 through to A level. He is knowledgeable, reliable, patient and always polite. He constantly maintains a positive approach and encourages me even when I perform badly. He also helps me organise my study schedule and remained a great source of motivation for me. I would blindly recommend him to anyone!". - Basa, Mathematics (grade 8, GCSE, AS, A2)

Tutoring Approach:

- The underlying factor for my success is my ability to change my style of teaching according to each student's ability

- I provide practical and lively examples to explain concepts in Maths, Physics and Chemistry

- I guide my students towards obtaining correct answers with a series of well-placed questions rather than providing them with information to `rote learn`

- Tipping exam questions is a common practice and I can do this nearer to exam period

- I am very patient and endeavour to remove the abstraction in mathematical concepts through simplification of seemingly complex procedures

- I am a strong believer in building a good relationship with my students

- I tend to focus on harder exam questions early on so that students are not overwhelmed with them nearer to exam time

- Providing students with visual representations in science works wonders in establishing their concepts

- Asking students to teach back what I taught them some weeks ago also helps in improving their communications skills besides serving as a revision tool

- Providing students a clear mental image of the process being taught when teaching sciences. For instance, explaining the concept of electric current by modelling it as a flow of water

Personal Description:

I have been teaching Japanese in Dorset for many years, and I am also an examiner for International Baccalaureate (Japanese course) in the UK. Before that I was a Junior school teacher in Japan. I taught Japanese in schools .

Personal Description:
After spending some time working in the IT industry, including a spell being practically a one-man IT department for a small business, I discovered a love of - and I like to think a knack for - guiding and supporting the learning of others through teaching and training. Initially this was in the IT/Computer Science fields, but more recently I have diversified into Maths. Seeing the "lightbulb moment", when a learner finally conquers a problem, is an undoubted highlight of my job. Away from teaching, I am a music buff, and I also love to discover new places and meet new people.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching professionally as a college lecturer since 2007 and privately since 2014, teaching Maths at KS3 and GCSE level, and IT from KS3 to BTEC Level 3. While I love the 'cut and thrust' of a classroom, I find private tuition to be particularly rewarding - being able to devote more time to each learner can make a real difference to those who might otherwise get overlooked in a large class, and only serves to increase yet further the satisfaction in seeing them succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

I can readily adapt teaching styles to fit the needs of individual learners. I recognise the importance of having a Plan B and trying different approaches to suit different learning styles. Learner input is more than welcome on this. If you know what techniques work well for you, feel free to let me know!

I am also a firm believer that successful learning depends on four main factors - hard work, willingness, perseverance and self-belief. Students often have plenty of the first three, but may lack a little of the latter. I see my role as being about encouragement as well as teaching, so as well as offering support and guidance, I will also encourage you to have confidence in your ability. Believe that you CAN succeed, and it becomes much more likely that you WILL.

CIAO A TUTTI!

My name is Stefano, a Ph.D. student in Italian Studies at the University of Reading, where I have been teaching since 2014.

There is no age limit for learning ITALIAN!

Grazie e a presto,
Stefano

Teaching Experience:

I have been a part-time teacher at the University of Reading since 2014.

I have a good level of experience in teaching and learning at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

In Italy, I have taught on XIX and XX century Italian literature at the Università di Chieti and on Dante and Italian Philology at Salerno. Since moving to Reading, I have taught on literature and theatre as well as contemporary and modern European history. At Reading, I am also the leader of study sessions on feminism and fascism.

Here I am also a Study Skills Adviser.

You may also visit my academic profile (conferences, publications, translation, theatre at Reading) on academia.edu.

Tutoring Approach:

Interactivity and students' involvement are at the core of my teaching. My focus is on the creation of original learning activities.

I have always believed in teaching Italian language and culture in a more dynamic and informal way.

In Italy, I taught elocution classes and theatre for students of all ages. At Reading, I founded the 'Italian Theatrical Group' within the Department of Modern Languages to improve students' linguistic fluency and knowledge. I find extremely useful recording scripts and rehearsals to give students feedback as well as to encourage their creativity and self-correction.

My lessons are specifically tailored on students' needs, individual or groups, children or adults.

Thanks to my theatrical experience, my lessons for CHILDREN will include the use of 'puppets' and other activities to be decided time by time, according to the topic and tutees' needs.

For ADULTS: As well as standard lessons, I also offer to translate/proof-read Cv, COVER LETTERS, AND ANY OTHER DOCUMENT, CERTIFICATE OR CREATIVE WORK.

Personal Description:
I am final year Computer Science student at the University of Manchester. This is my 3rd year here in Manchester. I have attained many qualifications during my high school years, related to maths. I have participated in many international, regional and national olympiads, and got several degrees (medals). So 1 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze medals are indicator of my success during my school years. I enjoy helping children with their difficulties during studying. I am doing math tutoring within Manchester area and possibly online. Since my father is a math teacher, I have been taught by him starting from my childhood, so I inherited the teaching skills and techniques from him. I am really good at this. I'd be happy if I can help you or your child with any problems related to studies.

Teaching Experience:

I have done for one year of maths teaching in advanced level to the students who are preparing for competitions in my home-country(Azerbaijan). Besides, I did last year 9 sessions with year_9 boy in Manchester and now tutoring a student to enter the Manchester Grammar school, and have one primary student too. In total I am doing tutoring continuously for 4 years in mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

One-to-one tutoring is the best technique I have observed so far. Generally, I am preparing initial sessions to be more like talking to them, I try to know my student from educational point of view (e.g. what is their background knowledge in certain subject). During my first session with my students I note down what they think their problems are and then decide what are the real difficulties of them. Starting from next sessions I prepare topics to be taught from zero or should be revised, and bring more examples related to them.

Personal Description:
I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic BA/MA History graduate with a background in teaching and archives/museums.

My subject strengths are: History, English Literature and English Language.
I specialise in: improving literacy and academic writing skills, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and English as a Second Language (ESL), preparing for IELTS testing, coaching for exams/interviews and supporting students with special educational needs.

I have a History BA from Bristol University (First, 2008) and an Africa/Asia History MA from SOAS (Merit, 2011). For my MA I specialised in Chinese history. I am also a qualified Archivist (PG-Cert., 2:1, Dundee University, 2015).

I am passionate about history, languages, and arts. At school I studied Welsh, French and German and I have been learning Mandarin since 2010. I understand what it is like to study another language!

I have just moved to Leeds from Taiwan (May 2017) where I was a TEFL teacher and private English tutor.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching background spans 13 years. As a teaching assistant in mainstream schools (London and Bristol) I taught students with specific educational needs, such as ESL or dyslexia.
I have taught in residential schools for students with complex difficulties, including severe autism or Down's Syndrome.
I have mentored students with poor literacy skills and a background of truancy in order to build their confidence and motivate them to enjoy learning.

As a TEFL teacher I have taught English to children (3-18 years) and adults in India, China and Taiwan. I have taught one-to-one classes, and classes with between 2-25 students.
In Taiwan and China I privately tutored preparatory skills for IELTS (an international English proficiency test), business English and academic writing skills (e.g. dissertation and thesis writing). I coached one undergraduate preparing to study an MA in English Literature in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

As a child my family moved a lot and I went to many types of schools: state, private, bilingual, Steiner, Montessori, single sex and co-educational, so I am familiar with different teaching styles.

I work hard to enable my students to reach their learning goals and feel motivated to continue learning. I quickly find out each individual's learning needs, likes and dislikes so they will feel comfortable in our lessons and inspired to progress.

I am very flexible and willing to tailor our lessons to my students' preferred learning methods: I am able to adjust the structure, level and content of our lessons.

I inspire my students to believe in themselves and push themselves forward whatever their pace.
