Personal Description:
I am a professionally trained actor. I have written for numerous publications, with stories and poems published regularly. I am confident with public speaking, since I have been performing in diverse venues for nearly 10 years. I have an MA in Acting and an MA in Theatre & Performance Studies. I have professional training in elocution, pronunciation as well as accent and dialect work.

I am a keen footballer, and believe in the importance of keeping fit and eating healthily. I also love travel, gardening, fixing computers and watching and critiquing films and theatre.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private Tutor since 2007, and am a member of a number of private tutoring companies. I have tutored in English Language, English Literature, Speech, Drama, Acting, Philosophy, Entrance Exams, and most primary subjects. I have tutored Students from all ages and abilities; including adults and teenagers, as well as younger pupils, and pupils with learning difficulties

From Aug 2009 to May 2010 I was a Learning Support Assistant, DeBeauvoir School, Hackney, London.

Main duties included ensuring that students with learning difficulties are both kept up to speed with the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Other duties include:
- To provide full time academic and pastoral support to individual learners with learning difficulties, and/or behavioural and social problems.
- To provide academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- To encourage learners to pursue further academic or vocational education.
- To provide behavioural support in class and to teaching staff at all times.

July 2009 - August 2009 I was SEN Assistant at Kentish Town CE School, London

Main duties include ensuring that students with physical and/or cognitive complications are given the extra support they require within the general classroom environment, and that this does not disrupt the other students.

Jan 2009 - June 2009 I was a Cover Supervisor, Neat Education & Select Education, Sheffield

Responsibilities are that of a Supply Teacher, being responsible for the learning and conduct of a whole class of students. Maintaining discipline and focus as well as being at all times a strong leader and role model were essential at all times.

Other duties include:
- Academic and pastoral support to all other learners when required.
- Monitoring attendance of learners and set appropriate targets.
- Invigilating examinations and mark work.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that Tutoring is first about personal connection. Any learning can only be achieved given a certain level of trust, which must be established in order to create a solid platform from which further learning can then flourish. Younger students are most open to absorbing information and should have the chance to take academic information and guidance from a range of people. This enhances the educational experiences and broadens the horizons of a student.

Having myself struggled with poor teachers, or unwieldy subject matter, I know that, with the right teachers, such areas can come alive. More clinical approaches to tutoring further separate students from the learning process. Having experienced one-to-one tuition myself, I have seen the many positives and potential pitfalls the system can bring. These experiences galvanize me and help me in my own tutoring. I relish taking what I have learnt, and the exciting methods by which I have learnt it, and passing that on to other students.

Regardless of the level taught, it is impossible to make real progress unless the student first has engagement and interest in the subject. I see my task as tutor as a process of invigorating the material for those studying.

Personal Description:
My names Will, I am a recent graduate of the University of hertfordshire, studying music. I've been a percussionist since about the age of 8 and started playing the kit when I was about 10/11. I believe in methodical practicing; focusing on specific techniques and concepts, and not progressing till they are mastered. I like to make the learning experience as musical as possible, so I often have my pupils playing to backing tracks, of my own piano accompaniment. Piano is my other instrument. My main, preferred style of drumming is jazz. Jazz fusion being the strongest sub-genre. I can teach almost any genre apart from maybe heavy metal, as I never took much interest in that, and don't use a double pedal! My main influences out of many I would say are Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, John Bonham, Jojo Mayer and Buddy Rich...

I am also a keen artist, and have studied many avenues of art over my time practicing the subject. After music, it is my biggest interest, and I have been doing it all my life. My area of focus is fine art, but I have plenty of knowledge in other areas. Recently I had an oil painting exhibited in the Royal Albert Hall for the remembrance day.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught numerous pupils in my time as a tutor. With the age range starting at about 8 up to 40 odd. I also took a group percussion class during my A levels, and I'm about to start teaching a fellow student of mine in the upcoming weeks.

I have no formal teaching experience as yet for art, but I have built up a bank of experience over the years, becoming well versed in all mediums and subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching the drums, is to build a strong technical approach through consistent and extended study of the different aspects of drumming and genres they can be used in. I make sure time is taken to master certain elements of drumming technique, but also try to make the lessons as enjoyable as possible, by having an extended library of music to play along to, and also by trying to get the student to explore their own creative ideas, and help find their own voice on the instrument.

My approach to teaching art will be similar to how I teach the drums. I will aim to teach the student all the fundamental techniques I know, experiment with a wide range of media, and help them achieve what I call 'flare,' which some people regard as only being a natural talent, but I think you can find it in almost everyone, If they haven't already found it themselves.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I love reading, writing and reading some more. I also enjoy sketching while listening to music. I am a frank person, have an straightforward approach to everything in life and like people to behave the same way with me (which always does not happen). I love to have a laugh, but don't worry, I can be serious when needed( for example, when teaching your children English and History).

Teaching Experience:

While I have never tutored for money, I have an extensive tutoring experience. I volunteered to teach illiterate students English as a part of a volunteering program from my high school in India and have been a part of that program for the past two years. I also used to tutor my two siblings in History, Geography and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that children learn best in a stress free environment. If they feel it is fun and challenging, they will be more willing to learn than if they feel it to be an obligation. English is an easy subject and children enjoy learning it, once they realize the joys that English has to offer. History can be challenging due to the vast amounts one has to learn by heart but steady habit of writing down answers to questions helps more than reading the material ten times. Other than that, History is a vastly interesting subject which helps us understand the workings of the present society and of course, knowledge about our ancestors. Geography is relatively straightforward subject. A lot of practice and a dedicated perusal of it should be enough to get good scores. While it can be relatively dry, it can be made interesting with pictures and videos.I focus on exam technique, past papers as well as text work (English Lit.)

Subjects
  • Geography
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)
  • History

Personal Description:
I am an English as a Foreign Language teacher of Italian origins. I work in a University based study centre that prepares overseas students for U.K. Universities, teaching them General English. I have 2 years + experience in teaching English to children, adults and teenagers, and I also give private Tuitions in Italian.
I dedicate the rest of my time to writing poetry (my second Italian collection of poems has been recently published), performance art and the organisation of cultural events.
I am an enthusiastic person, reliable and trustworthy. I am very creative and good at budging time.

Teaching Experience:

At the moment I am working as an English Tutor in a school. I have experience in the sector acquired both by paid work and volunteering here in the U.K>
I started to give one to one lessons in 2002 when I enrolled University as a form to support part of my studies.
In Madrid, from October 2006 to June 2008 I taught English as a Foreign Language to children of different ages (6-8 and 11-12) in three Primary Schools. I also run arts and crafts workshop for kids aged 3-5. I taught at English Summer Camps in Spain for the summers of 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Here in London I have been working as a Teaching Assistant at Holland Park pre-prep school (Oct.2008 to June 2009) and as a playworker for Special needs children with the charity Kids (Saturdays and half term)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring aims to build confidence in the learners and work with them, rather than lecturing to them. I generally tend to show students the steps and procedures that will lead them to make their own discoveries independently, so that they will be able to study autonomously in the future. As I learnt from my Celta course I plan lessons in advance, but I adjust to meet special learning needs and the the pace of work of students as I become aware of them.
I strongly believe that a tutor should relate to students as an equal, not someone superior.
I tend to show appreciation and praise whenever the student is doing well in order to encourage but also to prepare tasks that are challenging for the learner.
To finish, I would add that my naturally enthusiastic personality helps me to maintain a positive attitude throughout the process of teaching which is most beneficial for the student.

I am French with a Master's degree in International Business. I teach adults and children, conversation, business, and exams. I am personable and patient and successful in what I do.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching since 1990. At first for language schools in London. I have been working for myself for many years. I teach one to one or small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

Every person is different so I adapt my style of teaching to the student. To be successful at tutoring I believe you need to listen to the student's needs and understand how they think. I am very good at that and getting on with the student is crucial to be able to impart your knowledge of the subject. Willingness to learn is key and I keep a good gradient to make sure they remain willing.

Personal Description:
Experienced Science Teacher (Physics, Chemistry and Biology). I am currently working in an secondary school in Feltham and have been teaching for 15 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in both the independent and state sector as well as having taught in America. This has given me invaluable insights into honing my style of teaching to suit the tutees requirements. I have taught a wide range of pupils from those wishing to achieve a C grade pass at GCSE to Oxbridge applicants.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is completely dependent on the tutee. I have the potential to be a very patient teacher but also know when pupils require the motivation to focus their efforts on achieving the desired result. I use a wide range of resources from printed materials to computer generated slides, animations and mini whiteboards. I provide a full set of notes for all A Level Biology syllabuses (AQA, Edexcel and OCR) as well as comprehensive questions and past papers for all three specifications.

Personal Description:
Hello, learner! My name is Anastasia, I am a native Russian speaker, and I know what's going on in your head right now. You're thinking: I want to learn Russian, but how do I choose the right tutor? Do I even need one?
As a language teacher with 4 years of experience, I can say that a tutor is not necessarily a mandatory link in the chain of learning. However, having an instructor is absolutely vital at the beginning, when you're making your first steps towards proficiency.
As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you an honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a learning program that fits your needs. My programs include elements of grammar, speaking and pronunciation practice in the proportions that are perfect for your learning style. To see how it works, book a lesson.

Teaching Experience:

I have four years of experience of teaching English and Russian as a foreign language. I have worked as a school teacher, as a university professor, and as a private tutor.
My experience made me realize that one-on-one lessons are the most beneficial for students. Many of my tutees achieved the goals they had in mind when they started learning a foreign language: passed a school exam, passed TOEFL, got a job, went on Work&Travel program, started watching their favorite TV-shows in the original, entered a university abroad.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very flexible about my teaching method. I have a good eye and can identify your strengths and weaknesses in language learning. I can give valuable recommendations on what will work well for you. At the same time, I take into account your preferences and look for compromises in the learning process. If you become my student, you will feel extremely comfortable and cared about.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.

I am a student at the University of Birmingham School and, as a young tutor, I thoroughly understand the difficulties students face in achieving the top grades and how to improve revision strategies which will help with each specification. I have achieved 8A*/A grades at GCSE level.
I look for innovative ways in which I can teach and am driven by my capability of being able to instill confidence in students after two years of experience.
I am highly motivated and passionate about education, and work hard to show progress in my students. I use a wide range of resources with students and, as such, am familiar with the different exam boards.
My strongest area of teaching is Chemistry and Mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

11 plus entrance exams
A level Biology, Chemistry and Maths
GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to create a friendly, non-pressured approach to learning. I realise that it is vital to build the self confidence of each of my students and to ensure a clear understanding of basic skills. I assess the children carefully through questioning and discussion to identify each child's misconceptions, strengths and weaknesses. I then use a range of strategies and explanations appropriate to that child's abilities. I ensure that the student works at his/her own pace This structured approach leads to growing understanding and confidence enabling the student to make good and often very rapid progres
