Personal Description:
I hold a PGCE in Modern Languages and English, a PGCE in Dyslexia/ SpLD and a Master 's Degree in Special and Inclusive Education. I am of French and Italian origin, therefore speak both languages at native speaker level, and I also speak English fluently. My Spanish is excellent and I can, and have done so, teach German too.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching French and Spanish to GCSE level, and tutoring privately several students for French A'level, as well as dyslexia / reading and writing difficulties (both primary and secondary age). I taught Italian to adults, up to GCSE level, at the local college, for several years, and English as a Second Language for many years when I worked abroad, preparing students for the TOEFL qualification. I am also the Regional Primary Languages Trainer, teaching primary school pupils and training teachers.

Tutoring Approach:

I value one-to-one or small groups lessons as I can give individual attention to the students. I make them feel that they can achieve and use games and various techniques to make the lessons interesting and relevant. I have a wide range of resources at hand and I am constantly writing new ones. I prepare my lessons thoroughly in advance and deliver them with enthusiasm and care.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is a passion for me. I follow a very friendly teaching style. My approach is to make sure that my students completely understand the topic before i finish the lecture.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during lessons, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. Reading can be done in either setting, however it is important that both the tutor and learner participate in the process. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring.

Personal Description:
Hello there!
I am a Mothertongue Italian teacher and actor. I have studied Linguistics and taught English and Spanish in Rome and Italian in the UK. I've also acted for many years on stage & cinema. Acting and teaching are surely what I enjoy the most in life.

I have always been very satisfied at the general success of my students, that's probably because I am quite empathic and I always chose my teaching method basing it on my student's personality and will-to-learn.

Personal Description:
Playing the Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo and Harmonica and creating traditional Fine Art have been and are a major part of my life. Much as I would have very much liked to do, I never had the opportunity to become a Professional Performing Musician or a fully Professional Fine Artist . I have performed in public of course, and held exhibitions, but very rarely on a professional/paid basis. I have been a guitarist for over 45 years and an artist for 23 years

I studied art at the Thanet Schools of Art & the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design (the same College David Bowie went to)
for two and a half years. After that I had a twenty two year absence from art.

A change came in 1992: It was during a period of Long Term Unemployment. Whilst signing on at my local Job Center, I volunteered to go on an "Employment Action Course. In a sense this was a form of working for your benefit and was paid an extra 10 per week on top of Job Seekers Allowance. Hopefully this would have lead to work prospects, ideally in Art or The Arts. I had to report to a work placement provider who asked me what skills I had, to which I said "Art" and was assigned to a local Community Arts Center based in Gillingham Kent and appointed as a publicity designer and resources worker.

Whilst in my publicity artist role I was introduced to the then K.C.C Arts Promotion Officer Jim Shean who took interest in my art work and arranged an exhibition hire space without charge at my local library, the event was covered on Radio Kent's "Scene & Heard" Program. I also contacted the local junior school where my children attended and made a proposition if I could exhibit there. In return the headmaster asked my to come into the School twice a week and teach the children art, this featured in a local press article.

Over the years from 1992 to date I have held numerous small one man exhibitions in the Medway Towns and a little further afield and have manged to sell some (just enough to pay a few bills). In the last year or so I have been a little inactive in my art but hope to resolve that soon.

Teaching Experience:

16 years freelance one to one teaching of Guitar - Mandolin - Banjo - Ukulele - Harmonica and Basic Keyboard
Currently a Children s reading assistant for the Beanstalk Charity Project

Tutoring Approach:

Being a music teacher has at least allowed me to put my love of music to a measure of professional application, perhaps to make up for the lost opportunity and time. Being paid is a motivation, but far more importantly teaching others to play and create music is much more enjoyable, I have often gone overtime on my lessons and never charged extra. Also to be considered is the experience gained over many decades of musical struggling, mistakes, embarrassing moments during performance and how to overcome them that I can impart to my pupils. I also look forward to the pupil making sufficient progress so that I can have the pleasure to "Jam" with them.

Personal Description:
From an early age I have had a passionate interest in singing and have gained grade 1-8. I have sung in a variety of classical contexts and have performed in choirs and operas as a Soloist.
In addition to this I have a love of travelling and have worked on a kibbutz in Israel which was very interesting and character forming.
As part of my work in schools I have travelled to Greece as part of a teacher development programme. This involved trips with colleagues where research was carried out on the Acropolis and the Minoan Civilisation and have fed this in to my own development as a Teacher of History.
I have also been part of a range of school trips; Battlefields in France, Rome and London to name some of the more high profile visits.
Generally, I enjoy exercising, particularly swimming and walking, I have a love of good food and wine and relish socialising. I also enjoy literature both classical and modern.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History for nearly eighteen years both in UK Secondary Schools and in Private International Schools abroad. I have a real passion for teaching and have been praised by Ofsted, parents and students for my enthusiasm, commitment and very high examination results.
My career began in Cornwall in the late 1990's in a wonderful rural setting with a great deal of local History. i spent seven years teaching there and I had over eighty percent of the students choosing History as a GCSE option.
I was very fortunate to teach in a very prestigious private school abroad and managed to raise the level of interest in History as a GCSE option significantly and achieved amazing results in both schools.
I also have a great deal of experience of teaching GCSE English and English as a Foreign Language both in the UK and overseas.
After eighteen years my love for teaching has never ceased and I hope to engage more students and create a real passion for History for many more years to come.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring varies a great deal from student to student depending on their level and ability.
I always show a very supportive and flexible approach if needed and a firmer style if examinations are approaching. Students always feel secure and enjoy our lessons together and always achieve a pleasing result.
I have also taught a great deal of English to Second Language students especially when I taught in Greece and Cyprus and was amazed how quickly they could improve with one to one tuition.
I am available to teach in the evenings and over the Summer holidays as well

Personal Description:
I am a graduate student from University of Bath major in Interpreting and Translating(Chinese/English) and I've got a bachelors degree on Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages from Beijing Language and Culture University. Teaching Mandarin and Maths are what I'm good at. I'm quite easygoing and very good with kids.

Teaching Experience:

Part time Mandarin teacher at Prior Park College(Bath, March 2016- June 2016) - teaching A level and GCSE Mandarin.
Teaching assistant at Beijing Language and Culture University - teaching adult students Mandarin and Chinese culture relating course.

Tutoring Approach:

Approach to tutoring depends on the level of my student and the purpose of learning Mandarin. For exam purpose I will be more focused on helping the student learn exam relating materials and help him/her improve through practicing. For beginner level, I will be focusing more on combining Chinese culture related knowledge with language learning so the student will have a better understanding of the linguistic and cultural difference and it will be a good base for future learning.
