Personal Description:
I have an easygoing and pleasant demeanour, a nice sense of humour, and I generally get on well with my tutees. Although I like to have a friendly relationship with my tutee, I try to employ a professional manner at all times. I am a man in his early, middling years, who enjoys seeing others fulfil their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher, who has taught privately one to one for a number of years. I have primarily taught English on a one to one basis for tutees who are preparing for their GCSE and "A" level examinations, but I am also experienced in helping tutees improve their literacy skills from a young age. I also have a wealth of experience of teaching English as a Foreign language on a one to one basis. I have taught in a number of language schools over the years, and at one point started a language school in southern Italy. I have considerable experience teaching English up to "A" level standard in secondary education, and I have over fifteen years experience to draw upon.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one teaching, by its nature, is very intense, so it is very important to introduce variety as much as possible. A mixture of written work, as well as oral work, if required is essential to keep the tutee focused and interested in what you are teaching. It helps, sometimes, after an intense session, fot the tutee to have a short break, before continuing.

Personal Description:
I have an MA in Classical Philology and Russian Studies from the University of St Petersburg and am qualified to teach Russian, French, English and Latin. Since graduating in 1978 I have worked extensively in language teaching and translation / interpreting. I have also worked in France for 3 years and attended an interpreting school in Paris (ISIT - Institut Superieur d' Interpretation et de Traduction). I also hold a Diploma in Public Service Interpreting (DPSI in Law) issued by the Chartered Institute of Linguists and am a member of the National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI) and of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIL).

I have taught schoolchildren, students and adult learners at beginners, intermediate and advanced level. I have lived in Britain since 1991 and am available for tutoring in Cambridge, Huntingdon and in the surrounding areas.

I also provide English language tutoring for Russian, French and German speakers. As a translator / interpreter I specialise in Medical / Pharmaceutical and Legal translation and interpreting for private companies and public service organisations like the National Probation Service, the Police, the Courts and the NHS.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Latin at the Chemical Pharmaceutical Institute of St Petersburg (1978 - 1979).
Teaching English and French at the Technical University of St Petersburg (formerly the Leningrad Polytechnic) - 1981 - 1984 and 1986 - 1991.

Private tutoring - teaching English, French, Latin and Russian (1984 - 2015).

Tutoring Approach:

I do my best to give the student a good grounding in grammar which is a key to understanding and fluency whatever the language. I encourage students to listen to radio programmes in the target language, watch newsreports on television etc as it is a great learning tool. I feel passionate about languages myself and find teaching highly enjoyable.


I hold a full up - to - date DBS Enhanced check certificate issued 13 February 2013.

Personal Description:
My name is Lauren, I am 18 years old, and I am currently a student at Coventry University studying Spanish BA Single Honours, with TEFL (Teaching English as a foreign language). I am originally from Dorset, where I studied Spanish at GCSE and A Level, acquiring an A* at GCSE and a B at A Level. I believe I am a hard working individual with every intention on making sure I achieve what I set out to do. I enjoy helping others, working, and socialising with my friends, and I get on really well with new people.

Teaching Experience:

In the past I have helped out with some younger classes at my secondary school when they needed some assistance in some of the classes. Also, as my sister is 5 years younger than me, I have always been the one helping her with homework, or helping if there is something she does not understand. This means that I have some experience working with people who are in the age group I intend to teach.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a structured hour of work where the pupil is thoroughly engaged throughout the session. I think that there is a lot of importance in learning 'discovery' which is where the pupil is not spoon-fed information, but rather encouraged to try and work out patterns in the language e.g. grammar. Obviously if the pupil gets stuck I will help them. I also think grammar is an important part of learning Spanish language due to all of the verb conjugations and gender agreements etc. Homework is also important as doing a little each day is definitely one of the best ways to learn.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Zoe. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford, studying English Language and Literature at St Peter's College.

I'm an experienced tutor and I believe that with a good, solid education everyone's opportunities in life become better. I am patient and very committed to getting the best from my students.

Prior to university I attended Streatham and Clapham High School (8-16), and Wallington County Grammar School (16-18).

I completed A-Levels in English, Medieval History, French, Classical Civilisation and Philosophy AS Level.

My main interest is English Literature but I am ever-keen to use my French, and am also passionate about History, both ancient and modern. At GCSE level I opted to study primarily languages, namely French, German, Latin and Ancient Greek, and I am so grateful for the skills and linguistic understanding these diverse subjects have given me.

I am a keen reader, theatre-goer and traveller; I also enjoy sports, particularly running, netball and cycling. I live in southwest London and am happy to travel.

Teaching Experience:

I have plenty of experience tutoring people of all ages, and am currently specialising in English, French and History lessons and entrance/university interview preparation lessons.

I have worked as a temporary assistant at Faulkner House School in South Kensington during my Easter holiday from university in 2010 (children aged 3-11).

At school I worked on a mentor programme helping students from younger years with their French speaking practice and also with extra English.

I have a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification.

I worked with a local Brownie pack from 2006-8 which involved working with children aged 7-10, running a variety of crafts activities and games.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in the ability of each person to achieve academic success through hard work, and also understand the need for patience and perseverance to succeed.

Having benefited from one-on-one tutoring during my own education for those subjects I struggled with at school, I have first hand experience of the importance of a good tutor and just how much difference one can make.

I have a real passion for the subjects I studied at university and at A-Level and I communicate that, whilst simultaneously providing relevant and informed tuition sessions.

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm Jessica. I am an enthusiastic Biology graduate who is passionate about the subject and have a broad and detailed knowledge of the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience as a classroom assistant in a primary school where I worked with individual students who required additional support. I also completed a 'Communication and Teaching in Science' module at University. This involved spending time within a Primary school, working with small groups on a science project.

Tutoring Approach:

I want to ensure the syllabus is covered and think it is important to identify the areas which are being overlooked either because they are 'boring' or difficult to understand. I aim to help make the subject more interesting and reminding students that there are lots of interesting facts to learn. I studied for 7 years at University therefore have good experience in identifying the key points to remember for exams.

Personal Description:
I am a current student at the University of Bath and I am studying German and International Management. I tutor photographer to university students and work freelance as a portrait and product photographer. I studied maths, further maths, German and chemistry at A Level.

At GCSE I studied maths, statistics, German, chemistry, biology, physics, philosophy and ethics, English language, English literature, history and ICT. I gained 9 A* grades and 3 A grades in the summer of 2011.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored 6th grade maths (year 9) in Honduras and have taught German to casual learners. I teach photography at my university for the Photographic Society. During my GCSE years I tutored German and maths to fellow students and at university I tutored statistics for the management course.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that often it is simply a case of providing more individual attention that can really help a student. Through my previous tutoring experience I have found that one-on-ones where I walk the student through the way to solve a problem and find where they are having the most difficulty. Often it is a lack of confidence in their ability that is holding them back, and once a student gets past that they can find it a lot easier to understand new (and old) material!

Personal Description:
I am friendly and cheerful, I want each individual to achieve their personal best in their chosen subject. I believe that one to one tutoring can be an enormous help to students, particularly where good personal relationships are formed. I enjoy seeing students grapple with difficulties and then move forward - with support and determination, goals can be reached.

Teaching Experience:

I trained to teach in 1980, since then I have taught individuals, classes and groups in the UK and abroad.
I have worked in full time and part time posts in further education, in schools and in individual hourly sessions.
My most recent experience has been as a full time primary school teacher, working in a Warwickshire primary school for the last 15 years with experience of both Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum.
I am used to teaching both those who expect to succeed and those who are more used to failure,

I am currently available and welcome enquiries from individuals seeking to extend their learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in working with each individual and if relevant their parents or guardians.
I aim to tailor an individual porgramme to the needs of each person.
What interests me is finding out what your child needs and how you want me to support him/her then working steadily towards an agreed outcome.
Establishing good communication between your child and me is of paramount importance to success.
I look forward to meeting you.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Rebecca. I specialise in English language/linguistics and I am keen to tutor/help anyone with their English language skills whether your are a non-native speaker looking to improve your spoken and/or written English, or a native speaker of English looking for help on your national 5 or advanced highers. I have a GCSE and an A-level in English Language in addition to a degree in Linguistics, a Master's in Bilingualism and one and a half year's experience doing a PhD in Linguistics. I am also qualified to A-level in psychology and can teach psychology for GCSE and Advanced Highers. I am also able to tutor those who would like help with data handling in Microsoft Excel and data analysis/statistics using SPSS.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience tutoring both one-to-one individual sessions and tutoring groups of 20. I have worked with children from the age of 5 and have tutored adults in their 30's. The children I have worked with comprised children with typical language development and those with atypical language development (specific language impairment, autism and dyslexia). Adults with whom I work are a mixture of native and non-native speakers of English.

I am currently employed by the University of Edinburgh to tutor the tutorials for one of their modules in Linguistics. In addition to my work at the University of Edinburgh I also engage in regular private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important to tailor learning sessions to the needs and abilities of the student. Our current school system is still based on the traditions established during the Victorian times which maintains that groups (classes) of children will receive the same teaching, ignoring the abilities and personal needs of the individual children who make up that class. This is what is known as a 'one glove fits all' approach. I believe in catering teaching to the student's needs and abilities and to engage students at all levels. I also do not believe that teaching should be a static process, whereby students just listen to a teacher talking. It is important for students to think for themselves, to use the skills they have learnt in order to solve new challenges. It is important to keep students engaged. Learning should be fun and we can make this possible by presenting students with interactive exercises that are both fun and challenging. A successful tutoring session should leave a student feeling excited, reflective and overall hungry to learn more.

Personal Description:
I have a friendly attitude and find it easy to make people feel comfortable. I am a working artist as well as a teacher and I am passionate about my work. I have traveled extensively to exhibitions and galleries. My main interests are the impressionists and post-impressionists. I love the energy of color and I am able to teach the science of color and how it works.My main interests

Three artists who are very special to me are, Van Gogh, Cezanne and Matisse. I Love the way Cezanne carves out the 3D space using color. Van Gogh's paintings are beautiful arrays of color with wonderful patterns to create texture and physicality. Matisse can make his paintings sparkle. He knew exactly which colors to use to make his paintings explode with light.

Teaching Experience:

In the recent past I have been working as a supply teacher, chiefly because that is where there is plenty of work. I would like my work to be more art centered so art tuition would be ideal for me. I do not want to work full time as a teacher because I have my own work to do.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring would be to instill a knowledge and a love of color into my students whilst encouraging them to develop their own practices, looking at the great artists of the past as well as present day. Although a common opinion is that people are either good at drawing or not, I would disagree with this. Drawing can be taught just the same as English and Maths. I believe there is an artist inside all of us.
