Personal Description:
I am 50 years young, bi-lingual and live in Thanet. I have been teaching and tutoring since I qualified as a teacher of German as a foreign language in 1992 and in addition I hold a BA degree from the Open University, course included Information Technology and Maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching classes, small groups and students on a one-to-one basis since 1992. This includes 9 years in London. I have taught German to classes as well as intensive in-house business courses to all age groups, including adults and exam preparation.
In addition I am a qualified TEFL teacher and have also taught English as a foreign language for over 12 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have in more recent years started teaching maths to children out of the need to help my own and find this extremly enjoyable and rewarding.

Please contact me regarding availability.

Art week in Spoltore, Abruzzo, Italy 23rd April-30th 2017

Tutoring Approach:

I love to teach people who want to learn. A real joy for me is when people have enthusiasm but probably lack the techniques and the training to product a piece of work that satisfies them. We are all fierce critics of our own outpourings but understanding how to improve is the first step to feeling good about what we do. So many people have said to me that they would like to paint and draw but feel hopelessly inadequate when it comes to actually doing it. I can say that without doubt, all my students at Nene college felt that over the year they had finally produced work they were proud of and were amazed they could do this. I am a strong believer in drawing skills underpinning whatever style of painting is applied and so my starting point is always training to really see the world around us.

Personal Description:
I am a approachable but disciplined individual. I have tutored privately for 9 years now, 3 of which have now been in the UK.

Personal Description:
I am 28 years old and have just finished my fifth year of teaching. The first four of those years were in a successful Birmingham grammar school and have just completed my first year at one of Bath's top school. My own education was received at a mixed comprehensive school in Wiltshire, after which I attended the University of Birmingham where I studied mathematics. I have recently moved back to the area after eight years in Birmingham, living with my wife and 4 year old labrador. Amongst other interests, I am always looking to stretch myself and keep my interest in mathematics and education alive by reading literature (particularly by Marcus du Sautoy) and attending seminars by the Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and other such organisations linked with various universities.

Teaching Experience:

The majority of my teaching so far was at a school within the King Edward VI consortium in Birmingham, teaching boys in KS3 and KS4, the majority of whom have target grades of A/A*. Around 35% of my timetable has been teaching KS5, both years 12 and 13. I have taught C1-4, S1 and M1. I also have experience teaching a range of abilities, from SEN to A/A* students at two co-educational, OFSTED rated outstanding schools in Birmingham. I also have experience of tutoring trainee teachers preparing for their QTS tests and also those preparing for the King Edward's entrance exam. I have lead the development of ICT/Web based learning for my department and have mentored trainee teachers and NQTs. During my four years in Birmingham I was appointed Head of House and Head of Year 7. The house I took charge of had lost both the sporting and academic competitions every year for 10 years. After two years in charge, my house were the winners of the academic competion (consisting of 15 events) which I believe is testament to my ability for to motivate student. During my first year in Bath I have aided in the running of a successful department and have added experience of teaching further mathematics to year 13 students. The modules I taught were FP1 and S2 and I am due to teach M2 next year.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer that anyone, of any age and ability, can learn mathematics and learn it well. The key is finding a medium that relates to the student. I am willing to try a range of different teaching methods to ensure that all of my students understand the concepts and ideas that they are being taught. What I will always do is give a relavance and a meaning to whatever I am teaching. That way, I believe the learning is more engaging, more enjoyable and therefore will be of a higher quality. These beliefs, coupled with a laid back and likeable nature mean I create a positive relationship with all of my students, a relationship that is vital for good teaching.

Personal Description:
I have had much help from tutors throughout my academic life so I can understand the value that is offered to a tutee by receiving extra tuition in this way. I am currently studying a Ph.D in Medical Science at Aberdeen University and studied my undergraduate degree here also gaining a 2.1 in my honours degree in Biomedical Science (physiology). The hours spent doing work towards my doctorate is fairly flexible and I have a car meaning my ability to fit around the schedule of others is very good. I consider myself outgoing, patient and very reliable.

Teaching Experience:

I was Biology prefect in my final year at school which involved helping to teach classes up until fourth year. I also carried out some work experience teaching primary school children PE and as part of my Ph.D I will be demonstrating for and tutoring first and second year undergraduates at the university. I have also had vast one on one tutoring experience from 13+ maths and science to standard grade/intermediate physics to advanced higher/A-level Biology and Chemistry.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be engaging, challenging and above all I will strive to create an environment which makes the tutee want to push him/herself. The result will be that the tutee will enjoy doing learning and the progress and benefits will start to become apparent. It was through this style of teaching/ tutoring that I found my strengths in academia and ultimately successes, therefore I wish to pass this confidence in learning on.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced language teacher and examiner. A native French speaker, I tutor students of all ages, from primary to undergraduates.

Teaching Experience:

Since my PGCE, I have taught languages in secondary schools for 13 years; French to A level and Spanish to GCSE.

I am an examiner for one of the country's leading examination boards and mark examination papers. In the summer I conduct speaking tests in schools.

I have taught French in primary schools and after-school clubs and tutor people wanting to learn languages for pleasure or to help them communicate more effectively on holiday.

I also work with language undergraduates and support students wishing to achieve or improve their grade at the examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient and tailor my lessons to individual needs. My aim is to build confidence in speaking and using languages by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practise or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. I aim to make all my lessons fun and enjoyable, though with a clear focus on learning outcomes.

Personal Description:
I'm a friendly, approachable person who enjoys supporting students to learn and develop their skills and confidence. Students tell me that I'm encouraging, patient, fun, supportive, organised and explain things well.
I enjoy supporting overseas students who are studying at university in the UK and can help you to develop your academic English skills, confidence and help with proof reading and preparation of university coursework, essays and assignments.
I also work with adults who live in the UK who want to improve their reading and writing skills. These may be native English speakers or people who have English as a second or additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE in Adult, Higher and Further Education with a subject specialism in Adult Literacy. I've taught literacy in FE colleges and in community education and have tutored adults privately. I've taught in London, Hertford, Bolton and Stockport and have over 6 years' literacy teaching experience. My students do well in their exams and build confidence in a secure and supportive environment. I have been rated Grade 1 'Outstanding' in all my teaching inspections.
I have a RSA/Cambridge CELTA (Grade B) Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. I have over taught academic English at Manchester Metropolitan University and ESOL in further education colleges in the UK. In addition, I've taught EFL at language schools in London and Manchester in the UK, and in Poland, China and Japan. I have over 6 years' experience teaching EFL.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to get to know students and understand how they like to learn and what learning styles don't work for them. I spend time finding out what students find easy and difficult and what their goals for learning are. We can set targets together and really focus on what you need to achieve. It's important to me that students feel comfortable and supported in their learning in order to make good progress. I will plan for our sessions based on your learning goals and mark work and go through it with you.
I am organised, experienced and have been graded 'Outstanding' in all my workplace teaching inspections.
If you're an overseas university student I can develop your academic English skills and help with course work, proofreading essays and projects etc.
If you're an English speaker but want to improve your reading and writing to get promotion at work, help your kids with their learning, or to brush up your skills before studying again or for any other reason, I can help with all of this, too.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Kathryn, I am 32 years old and hold a doctorate in quantitative fisheries science. Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher at Bangor University Ocean Sciences, conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis in fisheries science. I love my postdoc and I have a passion for teaching. My career goal is to become a lecturer. At the moment I don't lecture within the university so I would like to tutor, which is something I have lots of experience in over the past years and is something that I love doing. I particularly enjoy enabling others with learning and building a relationship through that. Scholarship is something very close to my heart with a personal passion for learning. I feel privileged to be able to help others and enjoy working with different styles and learning techniques. I am a very understanding person and like to make anyone I work with feel positive about their learning. I can work to the pace of the student and am happy to adapt my teaching and expectations to what is best for the student, which is decided upon by both of us.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutoring experience from the last 9 years where I started in London teaching GCSE biology and A-Level psychology. Since then I have tutored many different fields of biological and ecological sciences at graduate level (Bachelor level). I have had experience delivering tens of lectures at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and Bangor University. I have marked coursework and provided teaching and support for multiple practical sessions. I have a particularly engaging attitude and am always available for extra support for all levels of students. I started my teaching career as a classroom assistant when I was studying at Cardiff University and since then have always had a passion for helping others learn. The first time someone understands a concept or develops their own ideas as a result of it is an empowering step and can be used to fuel a thirst for more understanding. I have worked with individuals and small groups, larger groups and classrooms as well as lecture theaters.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a student focused approach. Teaching should be conducted with the learner in mind. Everyone learns in different ways. some people like to learn on their own, others through discussions or interactive set-ups. Most people don't know how best they learn as this is not a focus in current education, so this is something I will talk to the student about and something that we can identify and develop together. I create a safe learning environment where there is no such thing as a silly question or answer. I have a passion for people and learning should always be enjoyable, so my sessions reflect this. I understand the way that information is processed and make best use of presenting well organised information that is often re-capped and constantly placed in the wider context. Feedback is one of the best ways that a student can learn and encouraging self-feedback is something I feel strongly is a fantastic way to learn. I have a very positive attitude and am understanding and like to push my students. I will ensure that learning is maximised by tailoring it to the individual and I encourage different styles of working, for example marking your own work with a marking scheme, discussions, questioning the status quo and what if scenarios. I also enjoy receiving feedback from the students so that I can constantly check that I am making the most of our time together. Overall my sessions are applicable, fun and challenging, and no two sessions are the same.
