Personal Description:
I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature with QTS and a post-degree Diploma in Teaching Foreign languages and a Masters in Sciences of Education - Educacional ICT.

Teaching Experience:

I have 14 years experience of teaching MFL at high school level and also to adults.
I teach Spanish, Portuguese, French and Latin. I taught at the University of California Santa Barbara as a Lecturer before I moved to UK, where my husband is from. I also worked for the Extremadura Government in Spain as a teacher and as a translator. I am now teaching in London, Spanish, French and Portuguese syllabuses and I have been involved in intensive exam preparation for students of GCSE and A levels. I also revise plans and advise PGCE students in Spanish and Portuguese.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to think of myself as a highly motivated and dedicated teacher of MFL that fosters high student self-expectation. This can be done by building commitment to quality education and developing strong bonds with students, parents and Faculty. For example, I believe in employing a variety of classroom techniques to raise achievement: I have recently developed a bank of resources for Spanish and French teaching to accommodate different learning styles. Aside from good teaching, assessing students' progress is important. For example target setting and monitoring is an important method in ensuring that students reach their potential. Finally, create motivating learning environments that capture the imagination of the students, using for example students performance charts with points to show each student's progress in each field and this can be used to monitor a student's acquisition of the target language.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of chemistry with business management from Queen Mary: University of London. I also hold the AAT professional accountancy qualification and CIMA Management Accountant. I have a number of interests and I am a keen learner, which I believe makes me a better teacher. I work for Star Tutors an Education Center that teaches Maths, English and Science at £8ph with small groups of four students. I have previously worked at Chace Community School as a Teaching Assistant and at Nightingale Academy as a Teacher of Business and ICT after being promoted from a Higher Level Teaching Assistant.

I have tutored students since I left university at the end of 2005, I have mainly tutored maths but also science, business and I have helped students with English and ICT . I have worked with special needs students whilst I was a teaching assistant. I have achieved HLTA status and I have worked in a number of other roles in education.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring comes from knowing my students very well. I will provide an initial assessment and then devise a bespoke plan to raise the students grades. I have a very patient approach to tutoring and will take time to ensure that my students have fully understood a topic before moving on.

Teaching Experience:

I have several years of on-line tutoring experience, and I am a wizard in English.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Sarah and I live in my home town of Newark, Nottinghamshire. I'm an experienced English, Spanish and ESOL teacher who creates challenging, rewarding and interesting classes for her students.

Classes take place in Newark. However, I available to teach in Nottingham city centre on Thursdays and in Lincoln on Wednesdays.

I have just started a Master's degree in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Sheffield (currently ranked 7th in the UK for Linguistics and 1st for student satisfaction) with the view to continuing onto PhD.

I enjoy cycling and swimming as well as reading and learning about the world we live in.

Teaching Experience:

I've taught ESOL in a variety of settings including Spain, Ukraine, Myanmar and England- in private institutions, government agencies and the state education system. I can also speak the languages of the countries I have lived in (to varying degrees) so I understand what it is like to be a language learner. This is also perfect for the current demand of grammar knowledge required by the National Curriculum; as a grammarian I certainly know my stuff!

I also tutor reluctant readers and those that either need extra support outside school or extra stimulation.

I'm currently studying for a postgraduate qualification in Linguistics and have recently written thematic courses for the British Council for teenagers based on famous authors.

I am also able to tutor for IELTS, which is the examination required by many institutions for further and higher education for students who don't have English as a first language.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, it is important that you enjoy the classes and that you are inspired and motivated to take your learning outside the classroom and apply it to your daily lives. I will give you language that is useful to you and skills to make your language learning more effective.

I tailor the classes to engage and challenge you- based on how you learn, what your level is and what your language goals are. We will use a variety of real materials as well as books to help you learn different aspects of language.

I understand that some of you may not be able to afford the price that I charge. It is possible to arrange something, for example, joining with another student to make the classes more affordable for you. Bear in mind though, that the hourly price is per contact hour, it doesn't take into account all the other learning you will do outside the classroom with tasks that I set you, so you can ask for as little or as much study for yourself as you want.

Hope to see you soon!


I can set you as much homework as you want. If you don't have time to do any, you don't have to, this is your class, or I can set you mini- tasks that you can complete as you go about your daily life.

Practice makes perfect!

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm a fully qualified, Cambridge educated teacher, specialising in English, History, Psychology & Politics. I am a trained English & History teacher & my degree background in Social & Political Sciences enables me to tutor in Politics & Psychology, alongside my classroom teaching and tutoring experience in these areas. I pride myself on being a fully-qualified teacher who is passionate about learning, transferring my skills and sharing my passion and love for my subjects with others. It is not everyone who is simply good at a subject or who has an impressive qualification in that discipline, who can actually teach it. Teaching itself is an art and a skill and I am proud to be able to use my personal success, pedagogical training and ability to support and inspire students.

I enjoy what I do and I love inspiring and encouraging my students to perform well and to maximise their potential. I have a high success rate and strong track record with my students & I currently teach up to A-level.

My own academic background includes A-level English (for which I obtained one of the top five marks across the country for my cohort of 2004), a 2:1 Bachelors degree from Cambridge University before completing my teacher training on the competitive 'Teach First' fast-track teacher training programme through which, I became a fully qualified English teacher.

I am now a full-time tutor whilst I establish my own business but in my most recent, long-term teaching role (3 1/2 years, full-time up to Dec 2016), I taught both English & history to GCSE level alongside 'Government & Politics' to A-level. I am also confident in the tutoring of Psychology, having studied Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) as part of my Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining an A grade at A-level, alongside private tuition success in this area.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, I look forward to working with you...! : )

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years' teaching experience as an English teacher, four years' experience teaching GCSE history & A-level Government & Politics and two years' experience tutoring A-level Psychology (which I studied as part of Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining a 2.1 and an A grade - full marks, at A-level).

I have taught, in full-time positions at high performing secondary schools across teaching English, history & politics full-time and serving as Head of Department in previous roles.

My previous experience also includes two-years of coordinating the whole-school's English & literacy programme for a secondary school in south London. This role included me ensuring that key facets and skills related to English, literacy and academic writing were embedded across the curriculum within each department, across the school (no easy feat!). I have also ran and coordinated English booster sessions for KS3 and GCSE retake students, helping struggling students at C/D borderline or lower achieve their English Language & Literature GCSE grades.

I have a strong track record of success with students, on average achieving 80 - 90% success rate with classes, with private tutoring students commonly improving by *at least* one grade or more. One of my proudest achievements was with a GCSE student who improved from an E grade to a B grade within seven months of tutoring and an A-level student, improving from a C grade at the end of AS to an A* by the end of A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to be rigorous and professional in my approach and fully believe that marking and assessment are key to success, so students must expect homework each session (for which parental support is essential) and I will spend time marking and giving detailed assessment feedback of student work, including marking tutorials with students so they can clearly see where and how they need to improve.

Whilst, I do have quite a driven approach, I am very personable and get a buzz out of making lessons fun, relevant and engaging with a focus on skills and application, as opposed to pure knowledge. I will often use reading materials and stimuli linked to the student's own personal interests, alongside any set texts needed for English literature, as teaching resources for my lessons so that students can build on their skills, whilst using material that motivates them. Furthermore, I apply this same approach to tutoring in history, politics and psychology, focusing on current affairs and contemporary developments in each subject to make the content interesting and relevant.

As a former literacy coordinator, I am also aware that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are some of the main hindrances to students' success across all subjects and year groups (adults included!), so I put GREAT emphasis on this in ALL my subjects.

On a whole, it is important to me to teach students not only to pass their exams but to actually help them develop the reading, writing, critical thinking and analysis skills that will help them for life. This is the goal I have for my students and for myself.
