Personal Description:
I am a Chinese native speaker who is fascinated by my own culture and language and have a passion to teach this great subject and keen to share the beauty of my language with others.
I hold a Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults, which is issused by Goldsmiths College, University of London. I am so delighted I have achieved "A" grade in my teaching practice assessment in above university. Also, I have finished the other part time teacher training courses on the lifelong learning sector. I believe that that private tutor's post will be a great opportunity to put my theory study into practice, improve my teaching skills and fulfils my ambition.

Teaching Experience:

My experience included:
Teaching my own children Chinese.
As a Chinese community teacher.
As a Chinese teacher at a local goverment funding adult learning center.
Employed by different language agent as a freelance Chinese tutor.
Self employed as private Chinese tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would stick to one or two straightforward objectives for one lesson and kept my materials as simple as possible. I would use contrasting pictures, colour word cards and self-made flashcards in order to make the lesson interesting and easy to follow. When presenting new grammar, I always try to kept it basic and simple. Moreover, I would use self-made puzzles to guided the learners to using logic, intuition and elimination to make up a character. It is also important to make learning fun and entertaining so I would try to maintain some humour when teaching. I would like to make the lessons interesting, enjoyable and memorable and students obtain the knowledge of the Chinese language through entertaining and the subconscious way. Last but not least, I would use up-to-date course books and learning material.

View Crofton's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
Before becoming self employed Crofton worked as an industrial research scientist in Electronic materials and Bioelectronics at the Plessey Research centre, then as a Department head (Nanotechnology Sensors) with GEC Marconi in Materials Technology until 2001. He now works as a consultant to the DTI and EC in Medical/physics research during the day while devoting the after school hours to Private tuition. With his previous experience in interviewing prospective job applicants and sourcing funding for research and development Crofton is able to help candidates at A level to present their strengths in university applications and is well placed to discuss possible progression routes.

Teaching Experience:

Crofton offers tuition in Biology, Chemistry and Physics at AS and A2 levels and Maths at GCSE. He is a graduate of University College, Oxford where he gained his degree in Biochemistry in 1975. He has A levels in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths . Since becoming self employed he has worked for over 12 years as a private tutor in the sciences typically teaching 15 to 18 hours a week mainly after school hours.

Tutoring Approach:

Crofton tailors the tuition to the individual needs of the learner, using his extensive knowledge of the subject he patiently explains the fundamentals of processes, thereby helping the student to grasp more advanced concepts. Exam success has resulted for many students through intensive one-to-one sessions, especially through coaching in exam technique by systematically doing past papers followed by intensive analysis of answers with the mark scheme. It goes without saying that the learner's commitment to self-study and thorough revision is the key factor in achieving good results. For this reason the student should be prepared to commit to one hours home work each week.
Crofton has helped many students to achieve the grade they need for admission to their chosen University course, including helping many students into medical and veterinary College where A grades in Chemistry are mandatory. He is experienced in the syllabus of all the major exam boards including OCR, Edexcel and AQA. Many students start private tuition after having been disappointed with their AS results and stay on through to their A2 exams, often improving their grades by two or three places. This works well on the basis of one hour's tuition a week and approximately one hour's homework.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of modern languages who combines bringing up a family with teaching French. I developed my love for languages from an early age. Coming from a bilingual home background I appreciate how language learning is an integral part of a child's development. My experience training in French Immersion education in Alberta, Canada has also added to my understanding of language acquisition and language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified French teacher with over fifteen years teaching experience. I have taught MFL in both primary and secondary schools from Early Years/Foundation Stage to GCSE level and beyond. I have run after school French clubs for primary school children and have also taught French to adults in Adult-Ed evening classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a distinctive approach to language teaching which strives to develop the confidence and creative skills of language learners in the four key areas of language learning by employing a variety of teaching strategies depending on the age and preferred learning style of each student.
Firstly I try to get to know my students, and establish what they already know and can do in the target language.
Then we build on their strengths while at the same time identifying areas of weakness that need to be worked on.
Study is organised taking into consideration the aims of the student and the intended length of study. I provide homework at the end of each lesson with follow-up advice and guidance on each piece of work. Preparation for examinations is systematic, concentrating on topics and language tasks specific to examination requirements.
Above all I endeavour to impart to my students a life-long love for language learning.

Personal Description:
Born in Edinburgh, I was raised in India and then Africa, before returning to the UK. Having lived in London and South East England since then, our family moved to the Scottish Highlands in 2012, primarily to raise our children in a less chaotic and more natural environment. We've had no regrets at all...and our various dogs and cats are similarly happy with the move!

I have always been passionate about English, from the weekly spelling tests and grammar exercises of primary school to the privilege of being taught at A Level by Tolkien's grandson. His vibrant, interactive approach shaped my ongoing learning and fired my imagination. After leaving Edinburgh University with a Masters in English Language and Literature, I went on to take a TEFL qualification and used this when travelling abroad in Turkey and throughout the Caribbean. I am delighted that I continue to work in the area of EAL with overseas students in British schools, and that technology has allowed me to work with individuals in their home countries, via Skype.

My love of English directed my career, working first at the Royal Shakespeare Company before becoming an independent theatre producer in London, and a theatre advertising executive on accounts such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' and Cameron Mackintosh's 'Les Miserables'.

In 2008, my partner and I began the home education of our two children at primary stage. It was both challenging and inspirational and the experiences and knowledge I gained during those years - not purely academic, but also the different ways and methods of learning, the different developmental stages of children, the different learning styles of children - continue to inform my present day tutoring.

While home educating, and with my love of theatre, I founded an educational theatre group, Active Arts, with Margo Gunn, a teacher and director at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. We worked with a wide age range of home educated and mainstream school children, providing workshops on various Shakespeare plays including 'Midsummer Night's Dream', 'The Tempest' and 'Romeo & Juliet'. Workshops were also designed specifically in support of GCSE/IGCSE work. As passionate advocates of Shakespeare, our approach was active and energetic, lifting Shakespeare off the page and introducing his plays, his language and his theatricality in an engaging and tangible manner. I was thrilled to be able to resurrect this work in the Highlands, initially at a local primary school, conducting 4 workshops for Primary 4-Primary 7, resulting in workshop presentations of 'The Tempest' and 'Macbeth'.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to home educating my two children and running Active Arts, my personal and professional lives led me into private tutoring and I have been a private tutor in English Language and Literature since 2009, working alongside children and young people from age 5 upwards, whether on general literacy issues, EAL or focusing specifically on exam work, from SATS, Nationals and GCSEs, through to A Levels, Highers and beyond. Tutees have been those in mainstream state schools, leading UK private schools and home education, following the English and Scottish curriculums, as well as IGCSEs with providers including Cambridge, OOL and Edexcel.

A number of my tutees have challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Tourette's and dyslexia, and the combination of experience, research and support courses have built my knowledge and understanding in these areas.

While I am registered with tutoring agencies, many of my tutees come via personal recommendation and I was delighted that tutees I had worked with in England chose to continue working with me via Skype after our move to Scotland.

Critically, I am PVG checked, and would be happy to provide evidence of this, together with references and qualification documentation.

Tutoring Approach:

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
My approach is not one of 'dip in and out' for an hour, or 'one size fits all', but of creating a relaxed, enjoyable, constructive atmosphere and building a relationship within which the young person's potential can be maximised, against a tailored, individual approach. While texts and challenges might be shared by various tutees, learning styles, atmospheres for learning, methods for learning, will always be different.
As importantly, my approach places great value on the parents, their involvement and their right and need for clear, ongoing and comprehensive communication. As such, I am often in regular contact with both my tutees and their parents, should they require it, outside of tutorials.

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited."
Plutarch

If you're looking for a desk-based tutor, one who does all the talking and expects your child to just sit and listen, I am not the right person for you.

If you're looking for someone to ignite a love of English, to build confidence, to be energetic, to make learning enjoyable, active, off the page, accessible, then, here I am!

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
For many young people with whom I work, English and everything to do with it - their texts, their homework, punctuation, close reading, writing an essay - is a minefield. Often, what holds them back is a mixture of low confidence, fear of getting it wrong, and simply not having grasped the 'map' of how to 'do it'.

One of my main motivations, is to make English accessible; to take away the fear factor, to provide clear and simple structures, to grasp some key exam techniques, to demystify the exam paper, to clarify what the heck the exam paper is testing them on; to remind tutees that they have, naturally, learned one of the most difficult languages in the world and are fully capable of expressing themselves on paper, under pressure and against time.

However whimsical it may sound, as with many things in life, self-belief and understanding are powerful tools for success.


MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
The demand for private tutoring is growing exponentially. As The Telegraph reported in 2012, "more than a quarter of parents use private tutoring to supplement their children's education", spending "6bn a year in the UK." A double page spread in Femail, February 2015, states research that almost 1 in 4 children are now privately tutored, with pupils at private schools almost twice as likely to have private tutoring than those from state schools. Whatever explanation there is for this rise, cost to parents remains an obvious barrier to its provision.

I am, of course, a 'business', but I also firmly believe that access to tutoring should be made as wide as possible; education is a right and not a privilege. As such, while I have a standard rate for 1-1 tutoring, I am also very happy to discuss your requirements with you and to look at options available, such as small group tutoring where the cost per head can be significantly reduced.

Please do take the opportunity of discussing your requirements with me, rather than potentially losing the opportunity of providing tutorial support for your child.

Personal Description:
Learning Practical Turkish and English!
Hi Everybody,
I am qualified, a dedicated and experienced teacher of English and I am a native Turkish speaker with 4 years experience of teaching English as well as Turkish. I have taught to different age groups both in Turkey and in the UK including children and adults. Teaching is a strong vocation for me and I love the buzz I get when I feel I have inspired my students. I live in Cheltenham and I am happy to provide language services in Gloucestershire area.

Teaching Experience:

I have got 4 years of Teaching experience both individually and group sessions. I have had individuals from different countries willing to learn Turkish including engineers and pilots and Turkish students who wanted to learn English for either academic purposes or for daily life.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring Approach:
My approach is to be friendly, supportive and professional when interacting with students. I encourage them to be proactive and resourceful in their approach to English/Turkish, guiding them through the processes of learning and problem-solving. Sessions are therefore individually tailored and flexible to meet the needs of the student, so are student-focused rather than traditionally teacher-led. I spend time getting to know my students and, whenever possible, encourage the practice of English/Turkish skills within topic areas of personal interest to them. I am a good listener and can empathise with my students, helping them to see areas for improvement in their work and offering practical advice and tips on how to develop it further. Ultimately, I aim to help my students fulfil their academic potential whilst also developing the range of skills needed to achieve their aspirations in life.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Personal Description:
I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Photography. Freelancing for 3 years since as well as working in paid employment as a photographer for that time in a couple of different roles.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously tutored in Photography for 50 an hour as a Senior photographer, team supervisor and Lab technician on board cruise ships.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a 'what you want to know' style! Photography is a wide subject and as well as being able to teach you technical details about Cameras and Photoshop I have an artistic eye for image making and can tutor you in many photography techniques including composition and lighting or basics in running a freelance photography business.

Also note that my tutoring service is only available to take place in neutral public places. Quiet coffee shops or cafes provide a great relaxed atmosphere for one on one learning in Photography and offer a possibility to easily access interesting subjects to 'test photograph'

Personal Description:
I am a first year medical student at Glasgow university with experience in tutoring children and young adults. Due to the fact I have just finished my high school exams, achieving very good grades, the course content and exam structures are still fresh in my mind which is what makes me a good choice of tutor for anyone studying the new Curriculum for Excellence Scottish courses. I am a very friendly and approachable person and genuinely enjoy tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I have au paired for the last two summers in Spain, giving daily language, maths and science tutoring lessons to children from the ages of four to sixteen. In addition to this last year I self taught my self two SQA advanced highers - Spanish and chemistry - and achieved the necessary grades to study medicine.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is the same method I use everyday when studying for my degree. I find that fully grasping concepts and ideas by discussing them and looking at relevant examples, instead of just monotonously writing down notes is the most successful way to learn which also prepares you well for exams and sets you up nicely for a higher level of study in the future. This is followed up by then applying this knowledge by practicing exam questions which helps build confidence in one's ability.
