Personal Description:
Hi. I am a qualified secondary teacher and I specialise in English and Maths 1-2-1 tuition, from primary (KS1 and KS2) to GCSE level (KS3 and KS4) My teaching degree was completed successfully at Manchester Metropolitan University which is an 'outstanding' teacher training course provider who received a 'Grade 1' by Ofsted in 2010. I am quite flexible with regards to the times I can offer for the private tuition sessions. I am currently contracted to work in schools through Kirklees doing 1-2-1 tuition with children from Years 7-11.

I am a fully qualified teacher and hold PGCE & QTS (qualified teacher status) I am also a registered member of the GTC (general teaching council) and a member of ATL 'The Association of Teachers and Lecturers' and also the 'NASUWT'

Teaching Experience:

I have had an extensive range of experience teaching across many different schools in West Yorkshire. I have taught at KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5 levels in schools around West Yorkshire. I have also worked with special needs (SEN) children in schools across the Kirklees area. The work was very rewarding and this made me not only work harder but also allowed me to enjoy the work I was doing, this really motivated me in all aspects of my teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher, I feel that any child who is lacking academically in their general work or their confidence needs to have some sort of additional help to equip them with the knowledge and skills which will be essential for them to use in the future. One to one tuition will allow your child to develop their understanding in areas of Maths and English which they might have found difficult to understand in school. It will also allow myself to help your child in specific areas of Maths or English which they don't feel confident with. I will try my utmost best to gather information about your child prior to them starting the tuition sessions such as gathering their reports from school and also their test and exam grades to help me identify their areas of weakness.

Personal Description:
I am Spanish. I have 25 years old. I have been living in London from more than one year ago. I am a very happy, active, polite, intelligent person. Also, I consider myself a very creative person who think that the process of learn has to be something natural, the person has to enjoy it. I like teach and at the same time learn from my students. I have skills in art, music, martial arts (Im black belt in Taekwondo), Maths... For me the most important thing is the discipline and motivation to learn.
Right now, I am learning English and Japanese. I like a lot classic music, my favourite composer is Bach. I like to play piano as well, learn about oriental customs, specially from Japan.
I am working teaching taekwondo to children and also in a coffee shop.

Teaching Experience:

I have a official degree of "Teacher of Music" in Primary school ( 6- 12 years old). I am waiting the Qualified teacher status (QTS). I have experience teaching children in all range of ages. All the teachers that I had consider myself a creative person. I use alternatives ways to teach using real examples, giving the motivation to learn all kinds of subjects. I have experience specially in art, maths and Spanish language.

Also, I can teach adults conversational Spanish. (I can teach grammar, but I consider that I can give to you material and you can do it at home, so we spend the time in the most important thing, conversation) In this way the student improve and learn spanish in a natural way. I can have all kind of conversation, like economy, sport, videogames, anime, manga, computers, animals, music, films, customs ... you can have a great time and at the same time you are learning spanish!!

Tutoring Approach:

For childrens I would like to focus the process in the motivation to learn, using real examples, draws and different materials that made it keep in a easy natural way in the mind.

I think that the teachers has to adapt everything depending of the children or adult. We have to take in count the hobbies and the personality of the persons and then, we have to choose the best way to guide them to have the most efficient way to learn.

I would like to focus teaching Spanish language but I am open to teach another kind of subject.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact me.

Personal Description:
Art and design has been the love of my life since early childhood. Being able to express oneself creatively and with imagination has always been my primary source of independence and happiness. Apart from that, i am also attentive to creative sparks and fires in the people around me, enjoying when the potential is given the chance to be fulfilled. Plus, i am thoughtful and hard working, with a light-hearted and empathic attitude towards people i work with. I am a bit of a connector, a bit of a maven, a bit of a geek and i always wear a sunscreen. I have studied Art and Design in Latvia and in London, have an Interior Design diploma and a degree in Product Design, strong drawing skills, sane knowledge of a range of arts materials, software skills and a spirit for safe experiments.

Teaching Experience:

Sustainable Opportunities Workshop 2011, in collaboration with British Council - designing the workshop and facilitating it.
Private arts tutor for life drawing and modeling, 2007-currently.
Learning Resources Assistant in University of Arts London, advising on materials and software (Adobe CS; Rhino; Solidworks for beginners) 2009-currently.
Arts tutor and group supervisor in Children Summer Camp, ages 6-16. 2007.

Tutoring Approach:

The best tutors in my life have been the strictest ones, with high demands and set standards. I have learned from them well and would aim for the same level of aspiration they have given me. But in addition, my strongest belief is that the best teacher is the one who understands the way his student works and learns and acts accordingly, being an inspirational teacher. Ages 6-99 can all benefit from expression through the different forms of art. First of all I would discuss the needs and desires of stakeholders and form a brief, which would include:
Desired outcomes
Program to reach them
Sourcing materials - what materials are needed
Timetable
Location

Then, we would be set for starting the learning and revealing the wonders of life and ourselves.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student at UCL, currently studying towards a doctorate in Mathematics. I have a BSc Financial Mathematics (2:1) from University of Surrey and a MSc Mathematics (distinction) from University of Sussex.

Teaching Experience:

I undertook tutoring roles at University of Sussex and I am currently tutoring a degree student in London. In addition to this I used to run a homework club at my secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that understanding is key. I will use visual representation and justification as much as possible to provide a clear understanding of why and how we use techniques. I will tailor my tutoring to the specific needs of my tutee, and my time will include a FREE consultation to see where the student is in their studies and attempt to highlight any areas where they may feel less comfortable. I hope to inspire my tutees to see maths as a useful tool as apposed to a chore.

Personal Description:
I am a young spanish guy living in London, i came to this city to improve my English because im studying to be a teacher (English specialty). Its a 4 years degree in the International University of La Rioja (Spain) and i complement my studies working part-time in a famous clothing store.
Five years ago i finished my Economics degree (4 years) in University of La Corua (Spain) and also i did a course about Stock Market Analysis in University of La Corua. I received a State scholarship to work in an Italian international company, where i had the chance to learn Italian as well. I did an Italian course in the Tourism School of Rimini (Italy).
I decided to star my teacher degree and change my personal career because i feel that its my vocation, i love to learn about everything and have the chance to pass on my knowledge to others. Its something really pleasant.
As additional information i can say that im a quite person, very patient and i love the sports, im a sportsmen and i did the course to be a monitor leisure activities which has given me the opportunity to deal with many children and teach them so many different activities such as: Archery,kayak, canoeing and rowing...
Other information of interest is that i was football coach during 6 years in a Spanish football team, dealing with children between 5 and 12 years old. It was a good experience to learn how i can motivate the children to achieve their objectives.

Teaching Experience:

Ive been working as a Spanish teacher in a language academy during 6 months, teaching people from Germany, France, and UK... (Adult people)
Also I've worked in a Primary School during 1 year as an English teaching assistant, teaching children aged between 3 and 9.
Apart from that i worked as a private tutor teaching different subject such as maths, English, economy, geography, history and Spanish. Teaching to students between 6 and 15 years old.

Tutoring Approach:

About my teaching philosophy, i believe that the student has to understand the problems and no just memorize. I always try to explain the subjects adapting the concepts to the real life, like that, the student will remember better the explanation.
For language classes i try to combine grammar, vocabulary and conversation. The conversation is one of the most important part to gain confidence and to speak fluently another language.
I always try to motivate the students to face the subject like something interesting and funny for them.
Concerning my availability im available Monday to Friday after 4:00 pm and weekends could also be negotiated. Im glad to tutor in my home or commute to your place or find another location.

Personal Description:
I'm a highly motivated and passionate editor with over five years' experience in copywriting, editorial and publishing. I recently trained to become an English Language Teacher and gained the Cambridge English Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA).

I currently work as a freelance editor and writer and offer private tutoring for foreign language learners. If you wish to learn or improve your English, then please get in touch. My hourly rate is reasonable and my hours are flexible. I can either host the sessions or come to you.

Teaching Experience:

I completed 120 hours of a full-time teacher training course leading to the Cambridge English Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) from 5-30th September 2016. The course was of an extremely practical nature and included six hours of supervised and assessed teaching practice on groups of adult foreign students. The course also included work on teaching methodology and techniques, and phonology.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is personable, supportive and encouraging. Before the tutoring sessions begin, I will carry out an initial consultation, which will enable me to gage the student's level (e.g. elementary, intermediate), as well as their reading, writing, listening and speaking abilities. It's also important that I understand the student's motivations for learning English.

During the tutoring sessions, we'll cover the basics of English grammar (depending on level) and practise the grammar and vocabulary using real-life activities, such as, writing an email; listening to conversations; speaking and reading authentic materials (e.g.magazine articles, emails...)

I'll use a number of effective teaching techniques for practising and checking language, and work hard to make my clarification of meaning effective. I believe in student-centred lessons and respond to students' needs, correcting errors appropriately.

~ Testimonials ~
"Natalie is a positive and enthusiastic teacher who has demonstrated a lot of ability in the classroom".
"Natalie has an excellent rapport with learners and responds well to their needs".
"Throughout the course, Natalie displayed a friendly and supportive manner with her students and was able to establish and maintain a positive learning environment".

Personal Description:
Prior to becoming a maths teacher I trained as as a Chartered Accountant and worked in Business and Finance. After having my family I moved into education and initially taught Business and Accounting at A level. I later qualified as a secondary maths teacher and have taught maths in a high achieving 11- 18 local school for 8 years as well a providing one to one tuition both at school and privately.

Teaching Experience:

Secondary Maths teacher, KS3 and KS4 since 2009,

Tutoring Approach:

I love maths and believe everyone is capable of succeeding and also learning to love maths if they are given the confidence to do so. Many students struggle because they may have been put off maths at a early age or missed out on some essential building blocks which have limited their progress.
I believe in going to back to basics and establishing a thorough understanding of crucial concepts, using different teaching styles to suit the individual needs of the student. I enjoy getting to know my students and being able to tailor my teaching to their personalities and needs.

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Matthew, I am currently studying for my masters in architecture at the Architectural Association. I am a graduate of Princeton University and St. Paul's School, London. I recieved top marks at Further Maths A-Level and studied Maths at a higher level while at Princeton.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching my peers while at Princeton University and have continued tutoring since moving back to the UK. Over the past three years I have taught students at various levels and abilities; from higher level GCSE to Further Mahs A-Level, as well as US university entrance exams (SAT and ACT).

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is to teach a full understanding of the material, so that the student is able to engage with material in way that means they can tackle any problem. Often in higher level exams questions will have many topics layered on top of one another, so a deep level of understanding and an ability to apply mathematical methods is required. In my experience the best way to deal with this is for the student to not only know the methods, but also understand why they are being applied. I have also found that this understanding is difficult to grasp from a conventional classroom setting.

After this process I then turn to focus on exam technique specific to the exam board the student is testing through.

Personal Description:
Hello! I am an undergraudate student at the University of St Andrews reading Modern History and Psychology. I'm Italian but speak English fluently as I attended an International high school. Learning languages is very important in my family: my father speaks 7 languages fluently, so there was also competition between my sister to see who could learn the most! I speak English and Italian fluently, as well as Spanish. I'm quite confident in speaking French too (although I may be slightly out of practice!). I'm currently learning Arabic and Russian with the University. I took Biology for A-Level, as well as Histroy, Spanish and French.

Teaching Experience:

While at school, I founded a Student Tutoring system, where A-Level students would spend an hour after school tutoring GCSE students in specific subjects. This was very successful; the GCSE students who attended our weekly tutoring sessions achieved (on average) GCSEs two grades higher than their predicted grades.

Tutoring Approach:

During my first lesson with any new tutee, I will test them to identify the way in which they learn best.
Many students believe that the only way to learn a subject is to read and reread their textbooks. While this technique may work for some, it's completely ineffective for most.
For example, I realised that the best way I learn is by teaching the material to someone else who has no knowledge of the subject. Others may find that mindmaps and flash cards help them best, while others still find watching YouTube videos to work.
Each student is completely unique in the way they learn, and my teaching style will reflect that. I keep notes on each tutee, in order to identify any patterns in their learning. This will help me structure each session so that the student gets the most out of it.
