Personal Description:
I am currently experienced in Science, English and History predominantly, and am fluent in 3 languages, with a basic knowledge of some European languages.

I have also been involved in setting up a Limited Company which aims to provide academic resources to students in Higher Education (at University level).

My work experience in the healthcare, higher education and training business sectors over the last 13 years has also given me the opportunity to develop a range of teaching / training styles that will suit most learners very well.

Teaching Experience:

Over 8 years experience, delivering 1-2-1 tuition to students aged predominantly 6-18.

Most common subjects taught - English / Maths / Science (up to GCSE). Also worked extensively with adults in the local community, training people in basic computing skills relevant to their specific needs.

For those interested in Business Studies, or how to set up your own business, I can offer lessons on these topics as well, including topics on where to go to get your funding, and how to market yourself effectively (including networking) etc.

Below is a more complete and comprehensive list of subjects which I am able to teach. All subjects can be taught from primary level, up to the level specified, and can also be taught as Adult Learning classes - unless otherwise stated.

Tutoring Approach:

I follow the National Curriculum, with set lesson plans for each tutor session.

We will follow a learning plan that will run alongside school teaching. I do not help with school homework on a regular basis. Instead, I use the time I spend with each student, to improve their areas of weakness, so that they can do their homework and coursework / assignments with confidence themselves.

Lesson 1 is always a discussion of what the student / parents wish to achieve, along with an assessment of the students current capabilities. If you would like the first lesson to be more productive, I can send the assessment to be completed before the first class. The assessment will need to be returned 24hrs before the first planned lesson so I can look it over and plan my teaching approach for the student.

Teaching styles / tools:
- Each lesson will have a starter discussion about any areas of concern in school - I will make notes and plan to work on those areas in the next lesson.

- We will then work on a mini-project together, which will help the student to learn and develop a range of skills that he/she can then use in their own coursework / homework assignments.

- For subjects which involve reading, the student will be given homework to read a chapter / section for discussion at the next class.

- For Maths / Science, there will be worksheets which the student will need to complete on his/her own after lesson.

- If at any time there are any questions / concerns from the students or parents, I am more than happy to spend part of the lesson in discussion about these with you.

- All lessons are taught in an informal and positive / open-discussion style. But in order to make lessons successful and get the most out of your learning plan, please ensure that there is somewhere quiet to work, and that you have all of the required equipment / stationery beforehand (i.e. pens / pencils / eraser / ruler / calculator / notebook or note paper etc).

- It would also be useful to have internet / wifi set up, to use either with your own computer, or with mine to access online resources.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
All student details are kept confidential and you can be assured that no personal information will be shared with anybody else. However, I may ask permission to use student's work as an example of how to achieve highly in assignments / homework, with other student. Again, all personal details would be removed.

The minimum time per lesson is 1 hour per week for regular bookings.

Semi-Intensive courses can be booked at 2+ hours per week with prior agreement.

Intensive 2-4 week courses can be booked with daily lessons close to exam times. These have very limited spaces available and would include longer classes if need be, depending on how the student performs during our initial assessment.

Intensive courses are also very useful for students wanting to pass grammar school entrance examinations or prepare for other specific exams and assessments.

Lessons can also be taught online, via Skype or Google Hangouts. All prices are reduced for online tutoring - please contact me for further information.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level as well as Politics at A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Personal Description:
The opportunity to teach both my Technical craft and Autocad has arisen more by accident than design for most of my Professional career. I am led to believe that I have a natural ability in engaging interest, particularly in younger people through a combination of both my communication skills and technical ability. This produces immediate rewards in contrast to the often lengthy process of Project work which can easily dilute job satisfaction.
I believe a fundamental part of Teaching is the ability to speak the language of the pupil - more esoteric now than ever before. Understanding and respecting their language and culture enhances the learning process and contributes to mutual satisfaction and success.

Teaching Experience:

In the 1970's and 80's my employers ; Bain, Swan Architects had a healthy Apprenticeship policy. Throughout this period, they recruited locally in conjunction with colleges in Galashiels and Ashington. I was asked if I would consider mentoring the Office's Apprentice Technicians due to my apparent communication skills and technical ability. I enjoyed this auxiliary role, particularly, as it frequently engaged me in improving my own technical education to answer their endless questions. The tuition procedure had the additional benefit of enhancing the Practice's hand-drawn presentation work through educating the apprentices in the provision of accurate, informative and harmonious drawings. This was a flair which I had developed over the years in pre-computer times and employ to this day whenever possible, despite the icy perfections of Autocad.

Working in London in the late 1990's I was invited to teach many aspects of my craft in to JJA Academy pupils in night classes.These were generally foreign students to whom I provided additional Autocad tuition, hand drafting techniques and Installation construction. I discovered that the judicious use of sketches and diagrams easily demolished any language barriers. Encouraged by the senior lecturers my confidence developed in this supplementary role.
With Wintersgill Faulkner in 1999 I was invited to create and teach a dedicated layering system in Autocad to improve the Practice's presentation output. The younger members of staff had a fairly haphazard approach to defining different materials which made their work difficult to read both on-screen and on the plotted drawings - even if it was generally correct.The principle I employed was based upon the old British Standard conventions for : colouring drawings, hatching and line density. It is rewarding to know that the same CTB file is still their standard office practice 10 years later.
By word of mouth I have taught basic 2D Autocad to several private pupils during the last 10 year period, one of whom currently has a Technical practice in Bury St. Edmunds

Tutoring Approach:

Hello - I am offering tuition services to anyone seeking a career in any aspect of Architecture or Building Construction.
35 years experience in the profession - with a full portfolio of technical and design drawings available to support this - accompanied by a comprehensive CV. describing the experience.
I can also provide an Architectural Technical Drawing service either freelance or in a permanent role.

Personal Description:
I am passionate teacher and I love what I do.

I am flexible as to methodology, from very formal exam coaching, "by the book" lessons, to more relaxed conversation classes.

I specialise in intensive exam coaching and my students typically achieve A* at A / AS-level!
I am also familiar with the 11+ exams, my daughter had the choice between various offers from both state and independent schools!

I welcome ideas from my students about topics, if desired I can include audio-visual material into the lessons (news programmes, pop song lyrics, soap operas, etc) -you tell me WHAT you'd like to learn, and I'll work out a way for you to learn it. I have a range of authentic materials such as bus/train timetables, venue leaflets, maps, magazines and newspapers that we can incorporate if desired.
We can tailor sessions around your specific area of work/study/interests.

I learnt English formally in school as a child, and learned Spanish while working in Spain for six, and in Chile for one year.
I draw from my own language learning experiences to make lessons interesting and effective.

I am a mother of one "little" girl (who is bilingual in German and English and is currently learning Spanish) and for that reason I prefer scheduling classes between 900am and 330pm.
I can accommodate a small number of weekend/evening classes, and will always make room for anyone with an exam coming up!

Please drop me a line with any questions, I'm happy to answer all enquiries!

Teaching Experience:

8 years teaching English in language schools (Spain, Chile, UK)

11 years of teaching private students (English as a Foreign Language, German, Spanish)

5 years being a host-family for "total immersion" students who study and stay in my home for 14 days at a time.

11+ preparation

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and friendly but I expect a serious attitude to the work agreed upon.

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:
At undergraduate level I studied Classics at Oxford University, which involved rigorous language learning and a close engagement with set texts. I was awarded an academic scholarship for my examination results. Then I completed a Master's Degree in Latin literature at UCL, focusing particularly on the influence of Latin literature on contemporary theatre. I was awarded The Dean's List prize for academic excellence. It is Latin poetry that particularly holds my attention because, even after two thousand years, there is still so much new to be said about it.

Teaching Experience:

Private tutor for six years, with significant experience in private tuition of Latin, Greek and English at all levels.

Taught Latin at a prep school. This required lesson planning, homework marking and well-tailored teaching because of the small class sizes. Although we referred to the 'Minimus' textbook frequently as a well-planned learning scheme there was no strict curriculum, which meant that we could use the lessons to explore some of the more enjoyable aspects of studying Classics.

Teaching assistant for primary school Latin classes. The class size was small, which allowed me to get to know the students individually and help each of them according to their level.

Excellent, up-to-date knowledge of the current syllabuses for Common Entrance, GCSE and A-level and have worked extensively from the Oxford and Cambridge Latin Courses, from Athenaze, Greek to GCSE, the ISEB Common Entrance publications and from other frequently used textbooks.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing is to find out the areas with which the student will need the most help. In the first session, I'll discuss with the student which areas we should focus on, then I will plan my lessons carefully to address those areas of difficulty.

I like to build routine into tuition sessions, particularly when learning vocabulary, so that the student knows what to expect in each session.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher and have an Honours Degree in Languages: Spanish and English, The Cambridge Proficiency Certificate in English, the CLTA certificate and the Level 5 Diploma in teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DLLTS). I recently completed the Level 3 QCF Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement.
I am a very personable and open-minded person who enjoys working with people from different cultures and different ages. I am patient, dedicated and understanding person who is really committed to my job. I always try to get the best from my learners by creating and adapting my own teaching materials and my lessons are results driven.
Finally, I have a great passion for my job which I really love; moreover, having been a language student myself, I am fully aware of my learners` needs and possible difficulties when learning languages.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years' experience teaching Spanish at different levels and to various age groups, and I am fully aware of the strategies which are appropriate depending on the students` level and age. I currently teach the NVQ and GCSE Spanish groups at Croydon College. I also teach a Beginners and an Intermediate group at CEL: Community Education Lewisham. I taught Advanced and Conversational Spanish to a group of 6 private students, at Microsoft.
I also taught Italian level 1 at Goldsmiths' University and Advanced and Conversational Italian at MAE: Merton Community Education. Also I teach Family Learning Italian at CEL: Community Education Lewisham, and Beginners Italian at Bromley Adult Education.
I am a Visiting Tutor for the CLTA at Goldsmisth's University of London. The CLTA is a programme run at Goldsmiths' College and at the Cervantes Institute, London. I teach both groups various sessions related to all aspects of adult language learning: learning styles, language learning theories, languages specific skills, practical aspects of language teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I speak three languages - Spanish, English and Italian - fluently and I have the capacity to read languages across a broad range of abilities, aspects and requirements. I have been living in UK for about 10 years and I have a good understanding of its culture and customs which I think is very important because it helps a lot in understanding the learners` needs and backgrounds. I am able to handle different levels in the same class; for this reason, I like to bring different activities suitable for different levels and ages to my lessons. I think students should never get bored and that learning should be supported and stimulating all the time during a teaching session. I have a good understanding of what is involved in language learning and this allows me to create manageable lesson plans and engaging teaching materials.

Personal Description:
After completing my D.Phil from the University of Oxford, I worked for 7 years as a Senior Biologist for a small drug discovery company where I was responsible for screening new drug targets in tissue models for human disease. Over the years I've had so many comments from students/colleagues about my ability to break subjects down to ease understanding, and coupled with my passion for science and sharing that with others I decided to change career and become a full-time science tutor. I've never looked back!

I am also a freelance examiner for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) - examining is invaluable to my role as a science tutor and to the development of my students' abilities in preparation for their examinations. It has taught me to understand the very specific focus of each syllabus as a whole, to read for the specific aim of relevant text, and to concentrate not just on surface comprehension but to expand science beyond basic skills.

I have many hobbies but particularly enjoy outdoor pursuits including: sailing, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking and running. Most of my free time though is spent with my wonderful husband and beautiful tots!

Teaching Experience:

During my time researching at Oxford, I tutored an array of students in Biochemistry, Biology, Genetics, Human Science and Medicine.

I have vast tutoring experience at both GCSE, AS/A2 level covering all UK exam specifications, including IB.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is informal, working with each student to improve their approach to learning whilst maintaining motivation. At the end of the day, learning should be fun!

I usually charge a very small travel fee to cover the cost of fuel.

Personal Description:
I am Francis currently studying for a PhD at University College London and a certified Higher Education Academy Fellow. I have a strong background in Chemistry, Biology and Maths, having studied a Science/Pharmacy related course up to the PhD level. I am formally trained to teach courses at higher level and keen to breakdown and apply these principles in tutoring at the level I am currently engaged in.
Patience and empathy are my best virtues and I know these combined with my strong knowledge in Science and Maths, up to college level offers me the ability to ensure my tutees meet their academic goals with outstanding results to show for our collective hard work and dedication.

Teaching Experience:

I am formally trained to teach, with a professional recognition from the Higher education Academy. My teaching experience are from diverse areas and levels. I have worked as a teaching assistant at various primary and secondary classes keenly observing, participating and understudying highly qualified and experienced teachers. Throughout my PhD programme, I have been teaching modules to various groups of undergraduate students, most of whom have offered outstanding reviews and feedback on my style of teaching

Tutoring Approach:

Anyone can learn anything! I am a firm believer in this saying. Understanding that different pupils/students have different approaches to learning and abilities is a good starting point in identifying unique strengths of individual students and utilizing their inherent abilities to bring across what they need to know. Some visualize better than others. Some are better at memorizing. Others good hearers. Taking time to understand a student will help develop a highly efficient unique learning strategy for him or her and yield a better output within the limited contact time thereby offering better value for money

Personal Description:
I'm a 32 year old native French speaker, I was born in Saint Etienne, France and lived there for the first 18 years of my life after which I moved to the UK and worked with adults with learning difficulties.
I am married to a native English speaker and we raise our children in a bilingual environment.

I am a language and culture enthusiast and I have been studying Languages for 21 years, with skills from conversational to complete fluency in French, Spanish, English, Italian and Portuguese. I am extremely familiar with the process of language learning and all the obstacles that can be encountered and the amazing benefits one gains as their learning journey progresses.

I am enthusiastic and optimistic as well as reliable and organised.My previous teaching experience has had very positive outcomes. I can give you contact details of previous students when you get in contact with me.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2005, I have been giving home lessons to adults wishing to learn/improve their French for various purposes (moving abroad, professional, personal interest). All gave me positive feedback and confirmed that the tutoring had been very much appropriate to the needs they specified when hiring me.
Also, I teach classes of 7 to 11 years old twice weekly at a local primary school as well as training in a local secondary education school in Alton.

Tutoring Approach:

The sessions will start with a short series of tests to assess your level. Then, if it allows it, most of the tutoring will be in French. If not, we will build up your confidence to be able to switch to all French as soon as possible, although, not until you are comfortable with the idea.
I use French literature (from children's books to classic novels) and grammar books, DVD's to base my work on.
Homework will be given when I find it necessary and my students needs will be often reassessed to ensure maximum efficiency.
I like working in a calm and relaxed atmosphere and feel that it is very important that my students communicate how they feel about the services I am providing, so I can go back or slower if they need.
