Personal Description:
I am 64 years of age mother of two grown children. My husband teaches at the Metropolitan University. I was born in the German speaking part of Switzerland and so am bi-lingual. I love reading, the theater, films, discussing all sorts of things be they topical, political or pertaining to essays to me done for the German course etc. I have many other things that are of interest to me.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught English to German speaking people but I have taught at South and North Trafford college, at Alderley Edge School for Girls, Wilmslow High and Knutsford High. I have also taught business people when they were either connected to a Swiss, Austrian or German company. I have tutored pupils from Manchester Grammar and also Altrincham Grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

If the pupil is learning German at his or her school I will be gladly guided by what they do with the German teacher and the course they want to go to improve their skills and also by their parents if they have any instructions of their own.
I absolutely love teaching German and working with young people to make the language more interesting and fun

Personal Description:
I am a lighthearted, focused and friendly actress, with a passion for new people and experiences. I have trained for a year at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic arts (LAMDA), where i was exposed to a great deal of new experiences, and was challenged daily. I believe that nothing is ever hard, but just a challenge to overcome and grow as a individual from. I have also trained at the National Youth Theatre, and have a BTEC in performing arts.

I have worked in a wide variety of jobs, and have consequently gained a large number of transferable skills, such as the ability to gain and maintain a rapport with clients/people/customers.I am very interested in what an Individual has to offer, and love seeing people find their true talent

Recently I have performed at The Soho Theatre, The Bush Theatre and have been involved with the national youth theatre.

Teaching Experience:

Although this is my first step into private tuition I have experience assisting drama workshops in schools, and have sat on the audition panel of the National youth Theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

Having received Private Drama tuition myself many years ago i am very aware of how important it is to be comfortable with your tutor. I therefore aim to create an extremely relaxed and open atmosphere in order for the tutee to reach their full potential.

I believe that drama classes can be used for anything from gaining confidence, to helping with speeches, but most of all i think they can help you learn much more about yourself and the people around you.

I aim to help clarify speeches, encourage students to reach their full potential, engage in a two way discussion about the piece they are studying and in doing so help them discover exactly what their objective is. This should all be fun and open.

Every student is different, and it is my responsibility to adapt and be aware of this.

Personal Description:
At Birmingham University I obtained a first class degree in mathematics and went on to qualify as a chartered accountant. It was my desire to learn Spanish that originally made me move to Andalucía in the south of Spain ten years ago. With full immersion in the language, I soon became fluent in Spanish. In order to be with my wife, I moved to Guatemala, where I took the opportunity for a career change in the local village school. I realised that teaching gave a much higher job satisfaction and was much more suited to my lively, upbeat manner.

Teaching Experience:

After some teacher training I found a job as a maths teacher in an international bilingual school called Atitlán Multicultural Academy. I went on to become the headmaster of the school for three years. Monitoring and assessing other teachers gave me a great insight into different styles. After the birth of my daughter I wanted to travel less so I started giving Spanish and maths lessons via skype. This video conferencing tool means I can give classes face to face to students in the comfort of their own home.

Tutoring Approach:

My Spanish lesson plans are based completely on the student's objectives and learning styles. Most of my present students want to learn conversational Spanish, so I concentrate more on the oral skills of speaking and listening. However, I always try and cover the grammatical points in a clear systematic way, ensuring the student does not get demotivated with the more technical side. The most important for me is that learning is fun, and clear advancements are made in each class.

The maths lessons deal with the specific problems of the students to aid understanding in areas that they did not fully pick up in school. I specialise in exam preparation for GCSE, AS level and A level. The students are made to analyse the question, break down the requirements and give structure to their answers whilst making notes on the steps which they found difficult.

Personal Description:
Hi there! I`m a young professional drummer based in London. I am an enthusiastic and down to earth educator and have been providing drum tutoring for a number of years to all ages and abilities. I cover a wide range of styles and techniques, providing my students with the best tools to achieve their full potential.

I am happily married to my wife Ruth and love music, motor racing, films and good coffee! Thank you very much for your time.

Teaching Experience:

I received private drum tuition myself for a number of years from an excellent educator. I have been teaching drums to young children, teenagers and adults for over 4 years. I have taught classes at professional music schools, and provided one to one tuition as well. I have lots of experience reading and writing drum music, have been a professional musician for 10 years, and love it!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a thorough and practical approach to teaching. I believe in my students setting their own goals (with some suggestions from me), whilst encouraging and equipping them to achieve their best. I use a very down to earth and open approach to education. I hope to develop an excellent rapport with any student, so they can share their own goals and musical aspirations, so we can work together to achieve them. I am keen for my students to pursue practice in their own time, and provide them with the encouragement and inspiration to make that happen. I aim to build my students confidence greatly on the instrument, and give them a sense of real accomplishment in music.

I recently passed a DBS check for work within a school. I`ve been a member of the musicians union for many years, and can offer a great insight into the world of music through a professional`s eyes.

I am also an examiner for the Edexcel GCSE History and the Edexcel A2 History Independent study option.

Tutoring Approach:

Personal Description:
I am a mature, bubbly and reliable individual; I have a passion for learning and thrive in passing my knowledge onto others. I am currently completing my Biology MPhil (Master of Philosophy) degree at Newcastle University; I am also a keen musician and have previously worked as a Music Teacher. I possess experience of successfully tutoring pupils of all ages; I take a flexible approach to teaching by playing to pupils' strengths, improving their weaknesses and exploring the best, most enjoyable way of getting new and difficult material across.

Teaching Experience:

Past Experience:
~Biology Demonstrator (Newcastle University)
~Biology Tutor (Self-Employed)
~Junior Music Teacher (Peterhead Music and Rock School)

I have extensive experience of working in educational settings. I was employed as a Junior Music Teacher at Peterhead Music and Rock school. There I taught from the ages of 4 - 40 keyboard, piano and musical theory. I learnt to adopt a patient, confident and professional approach and to build an instant rapport with pupils of all ages. I adapted my teaching style for the needs of each pupil and individually planned all lessons within good time. I prepped many of my students for exams (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, ABRSM, accredited), for example one student achieved a Distinction Grade 1 piano whilst another obtained a Merit for her Grade 5 theory. I carried this experience on to my role as a Biology Tutor where I followed the curriculum and successfully aided a pupil in improving their grade from a D to a B.

While completing my Masters degree I worked at Newcastle University as a School of Biology Demonstrator. Through the role of Demonstrator I have gained valuable experience of helping to run undergraduate laboratory practical classes alongside experienced technicians and academics. My main tasks were to supervise the students; I would ensure they adhered to safety protocols and promote their understanding of the practical by assisting with any queries they may have. I developed a good rapport with both staff and students by adopting a friendly, hard-working and patient approach.

Tutoring Approach:

As mentioned in sections above; I am a very patient and friendly individual. My approach to tutoring depends entirely on the student I am working with. I very much like to tailor sessions to every individuals' needs and abilities, ensuring that the learner dictates the pace we work at.

Personal Description:
Having graduated less than 6 months ago, I was a student and school pupil very recently too, meaning I can offer a different perspective and approach to most teachers and textbooks.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since my final year of school and always with good results. Most importantly, I have always managed to build good relationships with my students and establish the relaxed and informal atmosphere so important for productive learning.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone learns differently and I will find the best way for you, focusing on understanding rather than rote learning. This is much easier and more effective in a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere, something I try to establish in every session: learning doesn't have to be a chore!

Personal Description:
I am a skilled, experienced and dedicated teacher, who has a wealth of experience in both primary mainstream and secondary special needs settings. I am 53 years old and have had 18 years experience as a teacher and have also worked with children on summer play schemes and in care settings.
I have the following skills and qualities:

• A degree in English and History.
• A specialism in IT/Computing.
• I am creative in finding new strategies and different approaches.
• Experience of curriculum planning and adaptation.
• Patient; calm and determined.
• Hardworking and dedicated.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience across the age groups, from Year 2 to Year 14, with five years experience in mainstream primary schools and
thirteen years in secondary special needs, Teaching from P7 up to National Curriculum level 6 , (higher with IT).
I have worked with students with a variety of conditions, such as Autism; dyslexia, ADHD, visual and hearing impairments, moderate and severe learning difficulties, demand avoidance, Down's syndrome and behavioural and emotional problems.

I have been IT/Computing subject leader at all four schools I have worked at and have taught this up to GCSE level.

I can differentiate effectively and tailor the approach to their needs.
