Personal Description:
I am currently a secondary school Chemistry teacher at an independent all girls' school. I teach ages 11-18. I completed an Msci Chemistry course at Imperial College London gaining a first class honors degree. I have also done a year of teacher training and gained a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) working in two schools along the way. I also did Physics and Maths as my ancillary subject. I am well organised and able to manage time effectively. My hobbies and interest includes shotokan karate which I have done for the past nine years and also football. I attended secondary school as a boarder in Reading School, where I did my GCSEs (8A*s,4As) and A-levels in maths, further maths, chemistry and history (4As).

Teaching Experience:

Teacher at independent girls' school in London for the past year.

PGCE and QTS teacher training year, taught in two schools in London.

I have been a tutor for 4 years. In this time i have tutored numerous students from the age of 8 up to 18. I have taught maths in particular to years 5-11 recently. In all cases I have improved their exam performances and been thanked by the parents.

I have worked in a primary school as a volunteer running a morning maths class every Tuesday during my A-levels. This helped me learn a lot on how to convey my message to children so they understand how to solve the problem using their own intuition.

Furthermore I have worked with children in the Bloomsbury Kumon centre for the past few years which has been beneficial in many ways. I have learnt how children can progress over time and what is required to help them. At school I have tutored younger children in maths and helped them with their GCSE and A-levels as a mentor.

I have also worked as a teacher assistant in Camden School for Girls and helped in class across all the year groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in going through problems with the children first and showing a clear example, then allowing them to practice until they understand and can do the problems on their own. Furthermore I sometimes guide them in the right direction without actually telling the answer so the child is able to figure it out for themselves. I would follow the syllabus provided and teach every topic in suitable order. Then I had work through past papers and leave them papers and homework on each topic to practice. I would try to create a spark and make the pupils interested in the subject so that they can pursue their further studies with more enthusiasm.

Personal Description:
Hi,
I enjoy teaching and researching. Currently, I am working as a researcher at the university.
My area of expertise includes, Biology, Maths, Chemistry and Pharmacology.
In my quest of higher education currently I am working as a research Scientist in molecular pharmacology, and cell biology. My project is associated with Lister Hospital, Stevenage, UK.

Teaching Experience:

Visiting Lecturer at the university level From last 3 years. Teaching students at the university level theoretically as well as wet lab experiments. I had 6 Nuffield bursary students to teach in the university in last 2 years. All of them are very competent and few of them went to imperial collage, cambridge, oxford and kings for the graduation.

Tutoring Approach:

If a student is not have an interest and intellectual in to the subject, I take it as a challenge. I prefer to correlate the tedious concept of science with the normal day to day life and give a flavor of importance or demand of a particular subject.
Give me an opportunity to introduce myself and I am confident that I will not disappoint you. So far, none of my student left my tuition and stayed with me for longer.

Personal Description:
How did I become bilingual in English and French? It wasn't a miracle. If I can do it so can you.
I learned French in Lyon whilst I was teaching English as a foreign language. Your lessons with me are focused on real communication. I show you how I developed the skills of understanding and speaking the language so you can speak confidently too.
I've taught people from all sorts of backgrounds and am convinced that anyone can learn how to communicate in a foreign language. It's such a rewarding skill; great when you want to have a conversation, join in with the culture and just for the pure sense of achievement.
Speaking another language just feels really good.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last year, I have shown 50 people how to speak better French and English. That's nearly 1000 hours of teaching!

Language teaching experience
- French evening class to adults (2 years Secondary School, Essex)
- English as a foreign language to business executives, air traffic controllers and undergraduate university students (3 years International Language Trainers, Lyon)

Formats
- Skype lessons
- One-to-one private tutoring
- Group conversation classes
- Intensive crash courses

Complete beginners, people coming back to language learning after a long gap, and confident speakers who want to take their language skills to the next level

Tutoring Approach:

As your tutor, I wear many hats, I'm there to guide you through your learning, motivate you to keep moving towards your goals, make it easy for you to understand and give you lots of support for your own independent learning.
You will learn faster if you are open to exploring the language, prepared to take a few risks when speaking and are willing to engage with lots of different learning strategies that keep things interesting and challenging.
We have all proved that we have the skills and capacity to learn language, just by the fact we speak our own language. My approach is to tease out all the strategies and techniques that you already have for language learning, along with a few I've developed, and help you apply them to another language.
It's a fascinating journey with many benefits that go way beyond being able to conjugate verbs correctly, although of course grammar is important.

I travel to Epping, Harlow, North Weald, Bishop's Stortford, Great Dunmow, The Rodings, Saffron Walden and surrounding areas.
Skype across UK
Weekly lessons and intensive courses available.

Personal Description:
After having completed a qualification in advanced Spanish in Salamanca in Spain, I returned to the UK to complete a degree in Psychology. Following university I went to drama school, and college to learn to teach English as a foreign language. I have taught Spanish and English privately since graduating, and love to see my students improving in their language. I am trained in phonetics, so can help improve in Spanish pronunciation, and with British English or American pronunciation. I am flexible and willing to travel to central and around London, or or have students at home in the Crystal Palace area.

Teaching Experience:

Before completing the CELTA course I taught Spanish privately and in groups at the university of Sheffield. While at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School I taught private Spanish, and also drama/speech preparation to those wishing to get into drama school, then of course during my CELTA course I was constantly teaching English to classes and privately. I have taught private lessons in Spanish and English since then, and am doing so currently. As you can imagine, from living in Spain, a degree in Psychology, a professional acting qualification and teacher training, I've been around the study of people and how they work for a while now. These experiences have made me an empathic, patient and responsive teacher. Learning styles are really important for a teacher and a learner - if we can figure those out, you can become amazing and proficient in whatever you want. Let's have fun, get some work done, and finish proud of what you've achieved.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a modern approach to language teaching and want to make it as fun and interesting as possible. The mixture between a Psychology degree, an acting degree, and a CELTA course mean my approach to teaching is empathic and eclectic. I may use traditional board methods, or role-playing techniques to make sure my students' learning styles are explored and made use of. I would be perfect for any native Spanish speaker as I can relate language points to make comprehension of English clear, and for any English speaker who wants to learn Spanish. As stated above, my knowledge of the International Phonetic Alphabet and its application makes me a good choice for anyone additionally wanting to improve their English, or Spanish pronunciation. I have lived in Spain, so I understand what it's like to live in a foreign country where you don't know the language. I have training in phonetics from both drama school and the CELTA course, so am a good choice for pronunciation practice in an addiction to language improvement.

Personal Description:
Teaching is part of my life, which I really enjoy!

My teaching career started in 1985 in São Paulo city, and after some years I received a new challenge in a beautiful coastal location. Two schools invited me to teach and I accepted.

Teaching Experience:

Then I had opportunity to improve my career, teaching different subjects like ICT, Statistic, Accounts and Portuguese. Also I helped other teachers to develop ways to improve their classes using modern technology, bringing a new face to the lessons.

A further challenge arrived in my life in 2011 and made me move once again and now I am living in the UK, and I wish to continue my teaching to help you to learn Brazilian or European Portuguese.

No matter what your goals are, travel, business, educational proposal or simply to learn a language, we can work together to achieve them. I have my own material for all levels, ages and needs.

Tutoring Approach:

In a very dynamic class, we talk about music, art, nature, hints & tips that I believe help to build your confident. In a balanced mix of conversation, grammar, exercise, video and books, you will achieve your target in Portuguese Language.

Tuition can be Face2Face or online via Skype, Google Hangout

Personal Description:
I graduated in Classics (5 years) in Italy. I made extensive studies in Ancient Greek and Latin languages and literatures. The final thesis dealt with the historical fragments of Cato the Censor. I am now leading a research doctorate in Roman history at the University of Newcastle. The research concerns the tribunes of the plebs within the Mid-Republican period (218-134 BC), especially focused on the political role of the tribunate in shaping the Roman politics through their legislative action. My first language being Italian, lessons are available both in English and in my mother tongue. As for the Italian literature I can cover all the centuries of its great history, from the pre humanistic time (Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio), until the twentieth century.

Teaching Experience:

I have had experience of teaching in the italian school as a substitute teacher of Latin, Italian and Ancient Greek at the Liceo Classico. I also taught at Universities, most notably Latin and Ancient Greek, in quality of private tutor.

I run seminars in Roman History during the first academic term (2015-2016) at Newcastle University, focusing particularly on the works of the Greek historian Polybius, Sallust's historiographical view concerning the role of the common Roman people in order to determine the events described within the Bellum Iugurthinum, and the political issues of the last period of the Roman Republic that emerge from Cicero's speech Pro lege Manilia.

Tutoring Approach:

Lectures, with particular attention to the requests of the student. Translation exercises (focused on the morphology and syntax of both Ancient Greek and Latin), which are essential to strengthen and, if necessary, to deepen their knowledge of the classical languages​​. Additional readings compared to the tasks assigned by the school.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced mother-tongue tutor of English as a Second Language. I have worked in the UK and abroad and am an enthusiastic and motivated professional who loves her job.

I am passionate about lifelong learning and learn something new every year for fun. I am a coffee-drinking, book-reading, cake-loving, walker in the rain. I do yoga every day in the garden to the alarm of the cat next door. I enjoy travel, diverse cultures and meeting new people.

I think that accurate communication is vital. We must understand each other in our global village.

I believe that my role in life is to help people to develop their English skills and communicate without misunderstanding.

And to experience as many different books and cakes as possible in one lifetime…!

Teaching Experience:

I am qualified, experienced and professional English Language tutor (ESOL). I have taught individuals; small classes; large groups; all levels from Beginner to Advanced; exam preparation; CV building; job applications; interview skills; English for specific purposes, eg legal, medical or engineering, I have worked in multi-cultural classes with many different languages. I also taught in Sicily where all students shared a common language. I have high exam pass rates and excellent student retention rates.

Tutoring Approach:

Stress free! I believe that you must be relaxed to learn a language successfully. My focus is always on the needs of the individual student at that moment. I encourage, motivate and build confidence so that students can go easily and quickly into the real world and use their English skills without hesitation. I hold students accountable so that there is a real sense of progress from lesson one. I establish rapport easily and am reliable with a good sense of humour.

I speak Portuguese, English and I have a good understanding of the structure and vocabulary of the French language.
My teaching approach is always very dynamic and goal oriented, I use different resources, such as videos, music and pictures. We can learn in a fun and pleasurable way!
Would you like to learn Portuguese or English? Please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you/Muito obrigada :)

What's the difference between Portuguese from Portugal and Portuguese from Brazil?
Portuguese from Portugal and Brazilian Portuguese are two sides of the same coin. It's like British and American! You'll notice some differences in the accent, vocabulary, grammar and spelling, formal and informal speech. However, it is still the same language and you will be able to read and communicate with people from both countries, so I will be able to help you whatever your choice is.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching Portuguese and English as a Second Language for many years to groups as well as to private students using IT, course books and my own material. I also have a TESOL(Teaching English as a Second Language) certificate.

My teaching approach is always very dynamic and goal oriented.

Personal Description:
My 13 years experience working as a Principal Examiner included responsibility for writing your A Level and AS Psychology exam papers for a major exam board; awarding grades to students and writing the all important examiner reports. In this respect I have a true insight into how Psychology exam papers are set and marked having supervised the marking of thousands of exams since 2002. I was also part of the team that wrote and produced the new A Level Psychology specifications for 2008 and 2015.

I have been providing training and support to staff and students since 2003 and visit numerous schools and colleges regularly especially during the key revision season. I am a regular speaker for Keynote Educational Ltd and also run successful staff and student Psychology webinars for Resourcd.com

Teaching Experience:

I have nearly 20 years teaching experience and have taught and examined for both AQA and Edexcel specifications at A level and GCSE. I have written articles for Psychology Review and my new revision guide for A Level Edexcel Psychology was published by Hodder on March 31st 2017

Tutoring Approach:

Whether its simplifying content or more importantly understanding what the examiners want then look no further.
My sessions are always dictated by the needs of the student and we will typically focus on building confidence in understanding and answering exam questions. Getting your written abilities to match your verbal abilities is key as so many students know the answer but just cant write it down in the exam in order to get marks.
Exams have changed significantly so there is less guessing what's going to be on the paper and a heavier focus on applying knowledge to questions. I will challenge you to tackle these and other types of questions so you are fully prepared for them.
I always say 50% of your grade in August will be down to the correct type of revision and the other 50% is down to how you interpret the exam question, together we will successfully tackle both. I look forward to working with you, either face to face or online via Skype, and helping you achieve something special.
