Personal Description:
Recently made the decision to take voluntary redundancy from Volvo Truck and Bus where I had been employed both in accounts and as P A to the MD for 26 years. I wish to concentrate on teaching languages which I enjoy so much.

I have a 21 year-old daughter living at home with me while studying medicine at Glasgow University.

Teaching Experience:

I have a degree in French and German and have been tutoring both children and adults for many years, although my enthusiasm has never waned.
I attended a TEFL course two years ago and am still improving those skills through an on-line course. I find this very easy and enjoyable as I come from the generation who were thoroughly taught correct English grammar and spelling.

All my pupils who take exams achieve excellent grades and I can supply references to testify to this.
Languages are fun!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a thorough method of learning languages - not the 'phrase-book style' fashionable for some years. As much speaking practice as possible is essential.

Having so many years' experience, I have many practice papers and CD's for school exams and excellent courses for adults.

Any parents considering additional help in the lead-up to exams should try to start this as early as possible. I may be expert and dedicated but I don't have a magic wand to work miracles over the last couple of weeks before an exam!

Personal Description:
I am a young and enthusiastic private tutor with more than 6 years' experience, specialising in English Literature. I am familiar with a wide range of literature, including many popular school set texts. I welcome tuition requests from students at all levels and of all ages.

I hold a First Class BA degree in English as well as an MA in Victorian Studies with Distinction, both from the University of Exeter. I am also in my final year of a PhD in Victorian Literature at the University of London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught a range of ages and abilities in English Literature, both in the UK and the US. I have tutored children learning to read, primary school children, secondary school students (KS3, GCSE and A level), university students (at BA and MA level), and adult learners (including those studying an online course and those studying with the Open University).

Three years ago I also began giving tuition on English grammar and punctuation to adult learners wishing to improve their business communication skills.

I have helped students write clear, effective and successful personal statements for university applications for more than 7 years.

I also have experience of helping teach primary school children to read, write, and improve their comprehension skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to each individual students according to their needs, following a consideration of their strengths and weaknesses in the course of the first two sessions. This enables me to teach and enthuse each student. When students are shown different ways of looking at a text, and ways in which it relates to their own lives, literature becomes much more accessible, encouraging them to study and achieve better academic grades.

Extra tutoring gives students individual attention beyond the scope of the classroom, and offers an opportunity to look at set texts in more detail, and at the right pace.

Improving students' confidence is central to my approach to tutoring. With individually tailored tutoring, determination to succeed, and improved confidence, my students are able to achieve excellent grades and reach their full potential.

Personal Description:
I have a very high level of Mathematical/Accounting/Business/Economic understanding and very good explanation of the subject areas I teach. I am from a Banking and Finance background and enthusiastically share the knowledge I have gained over the years.

I am a passionate person hoping to steer students towards the level they desire.

Teaching Experience:

I teach Primary up to University level students whom have a thirst for knowledge. I have been teaching for a few years and have seen students excel from a predicted fail to the highest possible grade.

I provide one-to-one tuition and also give lessons in groups in which the prices are negotiable.

I get the best out of students and allow them to embrace the topic areas they are weakest and help them develop their strengths in a way that is enjoyable and focused at the same time.

With my services you will be receiving:
-High level teaching for optimal enhancement in Mathematical/Economic/Business/Accounting ability
-Highly Structured lessons
-Provision of Past Paper including Mock Exams (when applicable)
-Student Evaluation sheets after every lesson
-Extra Printing Resources
-Diagnostics Test every 30-60 days
-Advice with academic and career choices

Tutoring Approach:

I use different techniques to enhance and enjoy learning. By adapting my teaching style towards the personality's of my students, I believe this helps students reach a higher level of knowledge and success. The approach to teaching used is steered using positive reinforcement.

I am efficienct and practical in explaining problems and solutions due to time restrictions. Using a diverse range of structure and use of resources, the student will achieve a better grade than when they first started.

Personal Description:
I am married with three children and seven grandchildren. I like to keep fit and attend a local gym regularly. I have been involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme as an instructor and assessor and I am an active member of the Combined Cadet Force (Royal Navy Section).
Needless to say I am CRB checked. The most recent one dated last year. These last for three years.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully taught mathematics in schools in Nottingham, Surrey, Hampshire and Lancashire over the past twenty years. I took early retirement this summer from teaching but am still an examiner for GCSE higher paper.

During those years, I have had considerable success in helping my students to achieve A*'s in mathematics and statistics and have also been able to give additional help to some students to enable them to improve their grades. In addition to this, I have taught students who were struggling with some aspects of mathematics and been able to give them an alternative approach, thus helping them to a greater understanding of the topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to be able to get to know exactly what the tutee's problems are in mathematics and will usually ask to see some of their work in order to get a starting point from which to build. It might be that they are only struggling in one particular area and that's fine, I can help them with that, or they may need some consolidation;bringing all the topics into play in order to solve complex problems more easily and therefore building confidence.
I can supply worksheets or will work from their own textbook if they prefer. I usually set homework for them to work on before the next session.

Personal Description:
I am a language fully qualified teacher based in a comprehensive secondary school, specialising in Spanish. I am very enthusiastic, friendly and approachable teacher with a fascination for Spain and the Spanish speaking world, along with other countries and languages particularly French and German. I am a native Spanish speaker. In my spare time I enjoy outdoor sports like running and walking and playing with my own children in the park.

Teaching Experience:

I'm a fully qualified teacher. I have been teaching for eight years in a comprehensive secondary school in England. I am currently teaching Spanish from year 7 to A level (KS3, KS4 and KS5) and French from year 7 to 9 (KS3). I am very familiar with most of the exam board (AQA, Edexcell, WJEC and OCR). I have also been teaching International Baccalaurete (IB Standard and Higher level and IB ab initio) for two years. I have conducted speaking assessment and moderated written assessment for GCSE, AS and A level and also IB exams so I have great experience with exams specification.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm a very patient person and ready to help to build up your confidence. My lessons are always planned to meet my students' needs. I always include the four skills ( listening, speaking, reading and writing) in all my lessons. I believe that practising exam techniques are the keys to achieve the best results in your exams.

Personal Description:
My name is Daniele and I am originally from Rome. I have more than 15 years experience as Italian language coach/teacher in the world of opera: I hold a permanent teaching post at the Royal College of Music and coach regularly at the Royal Opera House. I have also worked, amongst other institutions, at Paris Opera, Opιra de Lille, Opera North, Scottish Opera, Welsh National Opera, and the Royal Academy of Music.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced Italian language teacher, and teach private one to one lessons either in Hackney, where I am based, or at the Royal College of Music in South Kensington.
I teach students of all ages, levels and aspirations.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor the lessons to meet the student's needs, ability and aspirations.
When possible I try to follow a textbook, as I think this gives a good structure to our courses. The student would be expected to do some homework between lessons, as this is hugely beneficial to learning.
The aim is to enable the student to 1) read and understand Italian, 2) speak and express oneself, 3) write and 4) understand when listening.
The atmosphere is friendly and informal.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Oviedo with a BA in Spanish and another in English. I obtained my qualified teacher status in Spain via a Posgraduate course and when coming to the UK I obtained the validation of QTS for overseas trained teachers.

I am currently finishing a second master΄s degree in the UK with a view to continuing to PhD in the near future.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in Secondary Schools both in Spain and the UK.

I also have experience as a private tutor for adults and young adults in both countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tailor the class to the specific needs and tastes of the student - specially the former is usually dismissed in class practices, but I believe in the importance of creating personal bonds with the area of study, which in the case of languages enables the student to digest and comprehend the new information in a different way. I personally vouch for after classes activities such as reading and watching films in the original language as a subtle but strong foundation for language proficiency.

Regarding classroom techniques, I believe in a combination of the Communicative Approach and more traditional techniques - I have access to abundant and varied resources for various levels. I am also keen on informal speaking classes for those willing to learn or improve their language away from the tiranny of grammar.

I have some experience preparing for various exams: GCSE, A-Levels and DELE.

I additionally offer specialised support for those studying Spanish at University level - which often implies a further understanding of the cultural and historical elements beyond the language. As a philologist, I can also offer support in more technical aspects such as linguistics (historical, biological and grammatical), phonetics and especially literature, my field of expertise. Contact me for details in that respect.

I offer assistance in writing essays in Spanish - correcting spelling and grammatical inaccuracies.

Personal Description:
I work as a Maths Academic Mentor in a local secondary school. I work with students on the borderline of success. My job is to raise their understanding of Maths and to help them raise their attainment along the way to getting a grade 'C' in Maths.
I am very reliable, flexible to your childs learning style with an open mind and a non judgemental attitude.

Teaching Experience:

I spend my time at school in identifying students who are not working at their potential levels in Maths. I work across all the years, but specifically Years 10/11.
Once identified, I work with students in class, one to one, or with small groups and also afterschool. The majority of students in my group will be around the grade D/C borderline and my job is to take them that one step forwards to a secure grade C and then onwards to higher grades. However, I can help your child Improve at any level including A and A*.
This is what I do everyday and over the years I have built a very firm understanding of the aspects of Maths and the specific topics which cause students to lose marks.

Tutoring Approach:

It's important to build relations with students, to promote confidence and encourage independent learning.

This takes time, but once I identify the areas of difficulty for the student. I can target those areas (Fractions, Factorising, Percentages for example) and along with the major 12 topics of Maths which contain the 'must get' marks, I can help your child to make weekly progress by teaching, practising and then testing, to check their learning is progressing. .

Personal Description:
I have a wide and varied education and employment background. Teaching is a vocation that I have found for myself relatively late in life. My maturity and experience are assets that enable me to approach students with great tact, understanding and patience.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a secondary mathematics teacher but I have a wide variety of teaching experience in many different subjects and teaching environments. As a supply teacher I have taught at over 30 different primary and secondary schools.

As a teacher of adults I have taught numeracy and English to many students over the last 5 years, including adults with learning difficulties.

As a private tutor I have taught Maths and English to all ages from 5 - 17, both at one to one level, and also in small groups.

I have extensive experience with 11 plus tuition and have a good knowledge of the content of exams for local grammar schools. I have received excellent feedback from parents. I work with small groups (6 maximum) at my home for 90 minute sessions after school. I methodically guide the students through the various types of test they need to master prior to taking the exam.

To sum up, I have helped many students improve their attainment levels, gain increased enjoyment from learning, and achieve excellent exam grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I have great patience with learners but also a great determination to help them to overcome the barriers that can inhibit learning progress. It is vital to me that the tutoring experience is a rewarding and positive one for both the learner and myself.

I have recently directed 'Ruckus In The Garden' & 'The Complete Works Of Shakespeare (Abridged)' with our Advanced Class at the Capitol Theatre in Horsham. I teach many aspects of theatre including storytelling, acting skills, comedy, improvisation, physical theatre and script work. I run interactive storytelling sessions with my early years classes where the children can learn and participate in stories and poetry.

As Actor In Residence I worked as a drama teacher, activity leader, LAMDA/Trinity coach, director, producer and I assisted in the day to day running of the 500 seat theatre. I taught 2nd and 3rd Form (Yr 7 & 8) drama using existing schemes of work alongside those I created. I taught over 150 pupils per week and as their only drama teacher I was responsible for their reports, three-weekly grades and parent's evenings. The school were so pleased with my contributions to teaching they offered me twice my teaching hours in my second year. I also team taught Yr 9 lessons and I assisted with directing etc in GCSE and A-Level lessons. Alongside academic teaching I led Drama 'actives' after lessons where I created and lead a one hour drama workshop several times a week. Working at Christ's Hospital also gave me the chance to work in a busy theatre environment combining set design, prop making, theatre maintenance, stage management and front of house management. I also directed and co-directed several shows including 'Anything Goes', 'The Crucible', 'Grim Tales', 'Ernie' Incredible Illuciantions', 'Easy Virtue' and 'The Jungle Book'. I have also experienced all aspects of Boarding School life and pastoral care as 98% of students are full time boarders.

• Management (Responsible for a team of staff)
• Lesson Planning & Observations
• Solo Lesson Delivery
• Communication Skills - Working with very young children with no English language

Each Summer I taught English to children aged 7 - 12 from around the world. I lived on site (in a boarding school environment) and I was responsible for teaching, entertaining and caring for the children twenty four hours a day. Having worked for the company for several years I reached the level of Assistant Director and Head of TEFL for the residential course. I was responsible for a team of teaching staff and I ensured they were delivering suitable and stimulating English lessons throughout the course. I also taught a class of my own. As Assistant Director I was a senior part of the management team, ensuring all activity and teaching staff were working happily and correctly. In the absence of the Course Director it was my responsibility alone to ensure the smooth running of our course. I often had to deal with couriers and families and I know how to project a professional, caring, enthusiastic and genuine image. I developed my team work skills, learnt how to thrive under immense pressure and my communication skills were constantly used to their full potential.

• Lesson Planning
• Solo Lesson Delivery
• Team Teaching

I taught children aged from 6 - 16 various theatrical disciplines and dramatic styles. I delivered a three hour workshop weekly. I ensured the children in my care were learning effectively and having a fun and enjoyable time.

• Behaviour Management
• PR

During a work placement with the Sheffield based theatre company Point Blank I worked with a partner to devise and deliver a cultural drama workshop. I worked as a mentor for two international students who had travelled to the UK to teach school children about their cultures. I taught the two international students how to deliver a successful drama workshop and I helped them shape their own ideas into an educational and enjoyable drama workshop for Primary School children. Alongside this project I also worked with an English partner to create a cultural workshop for deprived children in the city. I contacted The Sheffield Children's Centre and created a relationship with them enabling us to take our workshop to underprivileged children who had never had the chance to express themselves through drama.

June - September 2006 - The Funzone - Playworker

The Fun Zone provided after-school and summer holiday childcare play schemes for children, aged three to twelve. I would lead activities, play group games, prepare and cook the children's meals, clean the rooms, supervise children and be responsible for groups of children on various outings and trips throughout the summer. I learnt how to work with children and how to work effectively to carry out duties such as cooking and cleaning, while making sure the children in my care were both entertained and safe.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly, fun and experienced tutor. I believe a healthy dose of humour and kindness is important when teaching and I am a very professional and hard working person.

Personal Description:
I am a Geography student at UEA; my subject puts me in contact with both sides of education; from the sciences and mathematics to literature and philosophy. I am a kind, patient person who does his best to help others succeed. I am 18 and in my first year which puts me relatively close in age to GSCE students which allows me to connect with them more and therefore teach better.

Teaching Experience:

I have done work experience in a Primary School which taught me a lot about the practicalities of teaching. It was here I learned I had a knack for encouraging others to work and supporting them with their studies. I have been asked throughout my education to help my peers, which has given me the skills to support others with work they do not understand or need support with.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning should be made as fun and applicable as possible - which is where school fails. The best way to engage someone is to put what you are trying to teach them into "their language". Maths for its own sake is easy to take as dull and pointless, but showing someone that you can use it in a way that they find interesting and relevant makes them more likely to engage. This is true for any subject, and is difficult to do with a class of 30 but much easier to do one to one.
