Personal Description:
I'm a University of Glasgow Biochemistry and MSc International Project Management graduate. I'm a French national and have been living in the UK for 21 years. I'm a lovely person, very dynamic and love the one to one of tutoring. It makes me really happy to help someone achieve something they have worked so hard for.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately now for 13 years and have seen my students come to grow in confidence, in understanding and in knowledge of their chosen topics. I saw a girl who I tutored for 7 months go from getting an 'Unclassified grade' in her Biology AS Level to a B in her A2. I have never seen a student of mine's grades stay the same post-tutoring and I am very proud of that.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring different ways depending on who the student is. I ask them questions about themselves, hobbies, favourite subjects etc; and then using that to better understand how they learn, I talk to them about their private learning and revision and the method of approach to that and to exams. And then I teach them using the method appropriate to their style of learning. I also set plenty of work and get them to do past papers which I send to them in the first week. I then take these away and mark them in my own time and return with a deeper view of where they are going wrong after they have been taught. I do 2hr concentrated sessions either weekly or fornightly and have seen great results not only in grades but also in enthusiasm for learning. I am also on hand to discuss career and university options too, which helps ease the daunting choices the students have to make.

Personal Description:
Qualified and experienced EFL specialist. I've been teaching English as a Foreign or Additional Language for 7 years to a wide age range and for a variety of specialist purposes.

I've been teaching in China for the last 3 years and will move back to the UK in July. I'm looking to start tutoring again from August so please get in touch if your looking for a tutor to start around then.

I'm a calm, organised and friendly person. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy learning English and to see the progress they are making.

I'm very interested in using technology in learning and for students who like learning with screens I will integrate other websites and apps into their homework and preparation.

I learned French in school and I'm continuing learning Chinese. I remember my language learning experience in school and in China, I know what a struggle it is to understand new grammar rules and how difficult it can be some weeks to make time to practice. I try to create an enjoyable and supportive environment in lessons so it is not stressful to make mistakes and students don't leave feeling tired out by learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught :
English in south China for 3 years (2013-2016)
English as a Foreign/Additional Language for 7 years (2009 - present)
students preparing for IELTS and PTE
students writing dissertations and theses
beginner English speakers and native speakers
students from 7 years old up to retired grandparents
English for Business, Medicine and Engineering
preparation for driving theory and food safety tests

Tutoring Approach:

I like to incorporate games, puzzles and challenges along with the content to help you engage with and better understand how to use the language. I'm very adaptable and will plan lessons based on what you want to achieve and how you like to learn.

For students getting ready for a test I can prepare a course of lessons with exam specific practice and a focus on the areas that most concern you.

For primary age students I have a variety of fun and engaging activities that get them excited about joining in lessons and learning English.

For university students I can give tailored lessons to help with essay, paragraph and sentence structure. I can also review grammar applied to the context of your subject to help you in your academic writing.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I'm Chris, a Secondary English teacher based in Liverpool with experience of one-to-one tutoring. My main area of expertise is in English at KS3, GCSE and A-Level. I can help in the following areas:

- Basic literacy skills (reading and writing)
- Homework
- Exam preparation
- Revision skills
- Coursework/Controlled Assessment preparation

I can provide proof of ID, teaching qualifications, CRB and references as required.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years' experience in education ( one as a teaching assistant, one as a PGCE student and six as a teacher) of teaching English in both mixed and all-boys secondary schools in the Liverpool area. I currently work in a very academic, highly regarded school and teach the AQA specifications at A Level (Literature, spec A) and GCSE. I have tutored both boys and girls of varied ages and abilities during this time.

I have been an examiner for AQA for five years marking the English Language GCSE paper.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a personalised approach to tutoring that is tailored to an individual's needs to ensure that they are suitably challenged and make progress. I feel that it is important to develop a positive rapport between teacher and student, so that they feel confident and encouraged to learn. I would consider myself to be patient, friendly, and adaptable.

I am happy to meet in person, either at your home or at an agreed upon venue (such as a public library) - whichever is convenient for you.

My hourly rate includes expenses for travel and all resources. I will also mark any written work/homework I set your child after each session and free of charge.

Please include details about your child's studies (texts studying, current topic in English at school, exam board, specific areas of weakness/development) as this will enable me to assess whether I am suitable or not to meet his or her needs much more quickly than via several emails.

Personal Description:
I leave in the Uk in the last 5 years. My first degree was in Economic Science. I graduated from the University of Athens, Greece with a BSc in Economics at 2009. In the time period 2009 to 2010 I took a Master's degree in the University of Essex, an MSc Economics and Econometrics. Now, I finish my second master degree in the University of Nottingham, an MSc in Applied Economics and Financial Economics.

Teaching Experience:

When I made my BSc in the University of Athens I have prepared many students for the national exams with very good results. My main tutoring interest is the Economics and Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to give attention on the weakness of each student and try fix them. Moreover, I give attention in the main components of each modules since I believe that the basic is the start of the understanding of a course. I like to have a good communication with the student in order to makes my students to feel more comfortable and makes easier for them to participate in our lessons with questions or their personal opinion. I like very much to tutoring and as a result of that i spend a lot of time for the right preparation of the lessons. Finally my object is to help my students to create critical thought.

Personal Description:
A maths graduate from the University of Liverpool. Since graduating I have gained significant experience in the commercial, education and charity sectors. a former Commercial director of a regional airport and later having set up the School of Artisan Food I have a wide range of work and life experience which all provide very useful material for my teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of private tuition dating back to my time at University.

In recent years, I have taught Finance at the University of Derby and my module enjoyed one of the highest pass rates for the year.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to help the student understand the subject, and not only understand the subject but also how the subject is applied in real life, and indeed to their own lives. I have found this really helps the student to be able to grasp the subject.

We all want exam results, but I like the students to understand what we are doing as this way they get skills that will stay with them long after the exams are over.

I am quite an engaged tutor who is responsible and adaptable to the student. I do not have a one size fits all mentality, in fact it is because I don't have this I enjoy private tutoring. I like to work with the students and build their strengths and help them with any difficulties they may be having.

Personal Description:
I am a science teacher who loves teaching and tutoring. I have a PhD in chemistry and my subject knowledge is excellent. This enables me to approach a topic from multiple directions to help a student to understand.

Teaching Experience:

For the last few years I have been Head of Chemistry in a selective state school. Previously I taught Chemistry in a non-selective independent school. This teaching experience has been augmented by private tutoring where I have supported students of all abilities at KS5, KS4 and KS3.

As well as teaching chemistry at KS3, GCSE, and A level, I have extensive experience of taking students beyond the A level curriculum, for example, BMAT preparation. I also have experience at teaching physics to GCSE and biology to KS3 and maths to KS4.

Tutoring Approach:

Many students are limited by their confidence and my approach is to take them in small steps from what they know to what they need to know to achieve their objectives. I seek to identify a person's preferred learning style and tune my teaching to achieve success. My first priority is always to ensure the student has a comprehensive understanding of a topic and I assess understanding continually. After a topic is mastered to the point where the knowledge can be applied, I use past examination papers and ensure that the student understands the expected form of answer to the full range of examination questions.

Personal Description:
My name is Natalia. I was born and raised in Moscow. I am Russian native speaker, fluent in English. I graduated from Moscow Academy of High Commerce and worked there until I moved to England in 1996. Since then I have been living here and raising my two sons.
I was a student myself for over 10 years at Basingstoke College of Technology and completed various courses and obtained qualifications in England.
Currently, I am looking for new challenges in my life. Meanwhile, to further develop my career, I have decided to teach Russian to anyone interested improving their knowledge and fluency of the language.

Teaching Experience:

If your goal in Russian is to become fluent, I can help you to achieve that. My teaching approach will depend on each student's needs. I will tailor learning, content and tasks to individual student abilities. I can offer tutoring at all levels from beginner to advanced.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, I have no professional teaching qualification, I have been teaching the Russian language to my two sons for over 10 years. My eldest son received Grade A* at GCSE Russian two years ago and Grade A at A-level at college. I use a variety of language resources including Russian books, and the Oxford Russian language book with CDs.

Personal Description:
I am currently a second year Undergraduate student at the University of Birmingham studying Medicine. As an ex student at Queen Elizabeth's School for Boys I have an enthusiasm for learning which stems from my deep desire to achieve success. I have a fondness for teaching and have so for long periods of time. As well as teaching I enjoy to play football and I also thoroughly enjoy travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught numerous students at QE boys and have aided them throughout with GCSE English and GCSE/A-Level Sciences also. This has involved me coordinating lesson plans and detailed presentations for classes of up to 12 pupils. Having been through the stress of exams, I have also held numerous study groups and sessions in order to aid pupils further. I have also taught Year 7 and Year 9 pupils on a one-to-one basis in a range of subjects. I have also tutored IGCSE Chemistry student on a one-to-one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that the best way to tutor is to understand the pupil and their best methods of learning, rather than enforcing my ways upon them. After having been through the entire secondary school process myself I feel that it is important to engage with students and interact with them, providing them with new and refreshing ways to analyse, comprehend and apply the knowledge with which they are taught.

It is important that a student is able to relate to their tutor and feels at ease to ask questions to quash any qualms they may have and I feel the best way to do that is to provide an environment which is comfortable and encouraging. With extensive knowledge of a variety of exam boards, I will seek to dissect the relevant specifications for the subjects and relay them in a way which I feel the student will best understand.

Tutoring and learning is not meant to be a daunting process and the best teachers in my experience are those who you are able to talk to openly whilst making you think in order to get the best out of you.

Personal Description:
I am a current student at the University of Bath and I am studying German and International Management. I tutor photographer to university students and work freelance as a portrait and product photographer. I studied maths, further maths, German and chemistry at A Level.

At GCSE I studied maths, statistics, German, chemistry, biology, physics, philosophy and ethics, English language, English literature, history and ICT. I gained 9 A* grades and 3 A grades in the summer of 2011.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored 6th grade maths (year 9) in Honduras and have taught German to casual learners. I teach photography at my university for the Photographic Society. During my GCSE years I tutored German and maths to fellow students and at university I tutored statistics for the management course.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that often it is simply a case of providing more individual attention that can really help a student. Through my previous tutoring experience I have found that one-on-ones where I walk the student through the way to solve a problem and find where they are having the most difficulty. Often it is a lack of confidence in their ability that is holding them back, and once a student gets past that they can find it a lot easier to understand new (and old) material!

Personal Description:
I am a bilingual and bi-cultural French-American. I first came to Belfast in 2009 to study at Queens University. After obtaining my degree, I realized I wanted to stay in Northern Ireland and devote myself to befriending its lovely people, finding peace through its beautiful landscape and sharing my knowledge of the French and English language with an ever-growing swell of curious students.
I grew up in France, just west of Paris, and attended a very prestigious international school that boasts rigorous bilingual education. As a result, I am well versed in both French and English systems of education.
I am also the proud mother of a young boy who is also being brought up completely bilingual.
My interests include art (more of a passion, really), literature (particularly French novels) and food (growing up in France helped a lot!).

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching a small class of mature students in the Belfast area. They are at an intermediate level and find the material we explore in the classroom to be highly stimulating. Also currently, I am giving personalized French tuition to A-level students. In this manner, I am well familiar with the course syllabus for secondary school and have been smoothing out whatever difficulties pupils may have regarding exams.
My past experience as a French language tutor also includes teaching absolute beginners at the Language Centre in Queens University in Belfast.
I have also given private one to one tuition to students from all different walks of life and different proficiency levels; from post-graduates looking to brush up on their skills before a holiday or work placement in France to married couples wanting to learn the foundations of the language before relocating to the French countryside.
I am a qualified language teacher and have been awarded a TEFL certificate.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is purely student-centred. I believe that the student's needs should lead how the lessons are designed. In other words, I pay very close attention to my students' interests, levels, motivations, difficulties etc. in order to produce a course that will respond to their needs and help them find the meaning, direction and confidence they need to master the language. My lessons are highly personalized to ensure the student can relate to the material and be compelled to participate actively. My main objectives when teaching are to engage my students with stimulating material, challenge and encourage their natural aptitudes and finally, to reward their efforts through positive and constructive feedback.
I believe in everyone's ability to master any language so long as the teacher breathes life into the language and in so doing, sparks the pupil's curiosity, imagination, confidence and critical thought.
