Personal Description:
I have been a private tutor for 25 years. I really enjoy teaching on a one-to-one basis, because I not only feel that I have and can help people learn skills that they will need for the rest of their lives, but I also get a great feeling of satisfaction when one of my pupils or students either passes an exam or finds that what he/she has learnt during our lessons has helped them in their field of work.
I am a native speaker of English and a qualified EFL/ESL teacher/tutor. I lived in Greece for many years and so
I can help Greek speakers learn English.
I also enjoy teaching Modern Greek as a foreign language as I had to learn this fascinating language from scratch, and so I believe I can help someone who wants to be able to visit Greece or Cyprus to communicate with the local people in their own language.
Moreover, I have branched into the field of proof reading & editing of student dissertations, assignments & essays in all subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English as a Foreign and Second language for 27 years. I have taught all levels of English from Beginners - Advanced levels. I have prepared many students for the Cambridge ESOL exams, such as FCE, CAE, IELTS and CPE. I am also happy to say that I have had many successes in this field. I have also taught all age groups from young children to adult learners. I am a Cambridge ESOL oral examiner, and I believe that this has helped me both prepare students for exam success, but examiner training has also helped me to appreciate the importance of making a student feel relaxed and enjoy this learning experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that I have developed a personal, individual style when it comes to tutoring. I consider the tutor-student relationship to be of utmost importance. If a student feels confident and relaxed with his or her tutor then the learning experience is that much easier. Private tutoring allows the tutor to develop a course which is tailor-made for the student's needs. I always try to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible, by introducing a wide variety of material in every lesson, as opposed to just sticking to a text book which can well become boring and unproductive. There are many ways to learn a language or an academic subject, and this is what I try to achieve through my lessons.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Mark and I have lived in Belfast for 20 years. I have always loved mathematics, and loved learning more about it. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject to you and help you maximise your potential. If you're coming up to major exams, I can help you get the best grade possible for you!

Teaching Experience:

I have lectured in Queen's University for 10 years, and have been teaching others mathematics for longer. My private students have done well with my support, and I can bring the best out of you too.

Tutoring Approach:

For some people maths is easy and enjoyable - you just need help sharpening up your examination skills and revising in a new way to get a top grade.

For other people maths is a challenge - you get the general idea but need help understanding some principles, and certainly need to practice in order to get the grade you deserve.

I have worked with both types of people for years, and I can work with you! I offer one-to-one tutorial sessions, in my home or yours, backed up by email and telephone support where needed.

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge University educated, fully-qualified teacher. As well as teaching part-time in school, I run my own Academic Tuition and Language Services Company. I am available to tutor in English, French, Spanish, Italian and EFL. I tutor all levels from KS2 and I am also an experienced 11 plus and Entrance Exams tutor. For independent school students I offer tuition in line with the ISEB curriculum. I also tutor at KS3, KS4 and KS5 and for all the main exam boards at G.C.S.E, I.G.C.S.E and A'Level. In addition, I tutor online and currently tutor students from all over the country, who have personally selected me from amongst the profiles on this site.

Teaching Experience:

I have many years of teaching experience, having started out as an EFL teacher before gaining my P.G.C.E. After graduating, I also spent time tutoring in London and often received requests to travel with international clients to continue tuition. I hold UK Qualified Teacher Status [QTS] and have taught Modern Foreign Languages at Secondary School. In addition, I have taught Adult Education Language Courses for East Riding Council.
I also run regular group courses in French, Spanish and Italian for Adult Learners. In addition, I run small Literacy support groups to help students improve their reading, grammar, spelling and punctuation. I also tutor student teachers for the QTS Literacy Skills Test and have achieved passes for students who had failed the test on previous attempts.I also continue to teach English as a Foreign Language and have taught students from all over the world from Russia to Japan.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor my approach is patient and flexible. The learner is at the heart of what I do and my aim is for all students to make rapid progress but also to enjoy their learning. As a result I enjoy planning varied and engaging lessons which are tailor-made for my students. I strongly believe that one-to-one and small group tuition can deliver real results for all types of learners due to the focus on individual learning needs and styles.

Personal Description:
I'm 49 years old and I've worked with children and young people in various settings since I was a teenager myself. This includes youth camps/expeditions for children from deprived backgrounds and musical evenings in half-way houses for young people with emotional problems. I've also worked full-time for 17 years with children with learning difficulties, Autism, and challenging behaviour in both special schools and in a community outreach role.

I have recently graduated with first class honours in Geoscience, and I'm very interested in science in general, ever keen to learn more about the world/universe from a rational perspective. I love to travel, combining meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures, along with new environments, different animals and different rocks! I also love music and to play the piano, guitar and ukulele.

I am positive, calm, patient, adaptable and responsive to individual needs and enjoy supporting people to overcome their challenges.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to my youth work experience, I lived in Seville for nearly 3 years, teaching English as a foreign language, mainly to young adults in a language school and in 1:1 private tutoring. Within my experience in special schools I have taught pupils on a one to one basis and taken small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience both as a teacher and from my varied learning experiences, self-esteem and confidence is the most important basis for successful learning, combined with actually enjoying the experience. I endeavour to enhance both. I adapt my approach and strategies to meet the needs of each individual.

Personal Description:
I am a 28-year-old experienced tutor and medical student. Prior to coming to university, I worked in children's social care. I have vast experience in working with children and young adults - particularly reluctant learners!

I am also a mother and work part-time for a publishing company.

My main subjects are English Literature and Biology.
As a medical student, I have a broad knowledge of multiple areas of the curriculum. If you are interested in other subjects, please contact me and I will review the syllabus to see if I am able to support you.

Additionally, I am able to support students with the writing of essays and coursework. I can also assist with writing UCAS applications, CVs and job applications.

Teaching Experience:

I have been offering private tuition for over a decade.

Tutoring Approach:

All students are welcome to a free initial consultation. During this session I will spend time getting to know the student and understand their goals.

As a parent myself, I deeply value children's learning. I will not take on students if I do not feel able to considerably raise their attainment level. I meticulously prepare lesson plans and thoroughly enjoy supporting young learners to excel in their studies.

I provide reports at the end of every eight lessons, which clearly detail what has been achieved in tuition and what requires further focus.

Personal Description:
I am doing A Levels at the Liverpool Blue Coat School, currently studying geography, maths, chemistry and biology to attain A and A* grades at A level. At GCSE I achieved 6A* 5A's, with strong A* grades in the subjects I carried on at A level. I have demonstrated negotiating and organising skills, a firm sense of responsibility and my capacity hard work under pressure. I possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and am able to relate to wide range of people as proven by my varied experiences. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and believe I have a friendly, approaching personality which makes me able to communicate with children of all ages. In my free time I enjoy playing a lot of cricket and football.

Teaching Experience:

In the past years, I have had 2 weeks of work experiences in Primary School where I have delivered some interactive lessons. I have delivered maths lesson to a year 8 class in Blue Coat School, which have been proven to be very enjoyable for both the students and I. I deliver weekly lessons to year 7s at Blue Coat and I am currently tutoring year 9 with Maths in order to help his achieve his targeted level. As well as this, I have a younger siblings who I regularly help with homework (two are in secondary school and one is in primary school).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that virtually all students are motivated in one way or another. One student may be keenly interested in classroom subject matter and seek out challenging course work, participate actively in class discussions, and earn high marks on assigned projects. However there are some students who need an extra push and need to develop better understanding around the topic in order for them to achieve the desire grades they want. With my experience, I am here to provide a positive learning environment for students where no question is a stupid question and I believe I have the potential to help the students achieve their very best potential as proved by my past success in tutoring younger pupils.

I am specialised for entrance exam tutoring (in particular all grammar school in Merseyside) as I have helped many children in the past to get into Liverpool Blue Coat School. I have volunteered in the Blue Coat School entrance exam which allows me to have a brief idea of what can come up in the exam.

I always have the right knowledge for success in a certain subject
I can spot where a personal student's weaknesses and strength lies
I also help the students to achieve some self-belief and confidence in their learning to keep them motivated

Personal Description:
From an early age I have had a passionate interest in singing and have gained grade 1-8. I have sung in a variety of classical contexts and have performed in choirs and operas as a Soloist.
In addition to this I have a love of travelling and have worked on a kibbutz in Israel which was very interesting and character forming.
As part of my work in schools I have travelled to Greece as part of a teacher development programme. This involved trips with colleagues where research was carried out on the Acropolis and the Minoan Civilisation and have fed this in to my own development as a Teacher of History.
I have also been part of a range of school trips; Battlefields in France, Rome and London to name some of the more high profile visits.
Generally, I enjoy exercising, particularly swimming and walking, I have a love of good food and wine and relish socialising. I also enjoy literature both classical and modern.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History for nearly eighteen years both in UK Secondary Schools and in Private International Schools abroad. I have a real passion for teaching and have been praised by Ofsted, parents and students for my enthusiasm, commitment and very high examination results.
My career began in Cornwall in the late 1990's in a wonderful rural setting with a great deal of local History. i spent seven years teaching there and I had over eighty percent of the students choosing History as a GCSE option.
I was very fortunate to teach in a very prestigious private school abroad and managed to raise the level of interest in History as a GCSE option significantly and achieved amazing results in both schools.
I also have a great deal of experience of teaching GCSE English and English as a Foreign Language both in the UK and overseas.
After eighteen years my love for teaching has never ceased and I hope to engage more students and create a real passion for History for many more years to come.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring varies a great deal from student to student depending on their level and ability.
I always show a very supportive and flexible approach if needed and a firmer style if examinations are approaching. Students always feel secure and enjoy our lessons together and always achieve a pleasing result.
I have also taught a great deal of English to Second Language students especially when I taught in Greece and Cyprus and was amazed how quickly they could improve with one to one tuition.
I am available to teach in the evenings and over the Summer holidays as well

Personal Description:
I'm a Brazilian freelance photographer and film-maker based in London. Specialized in making ethnographic videos and documentaries, I also film and photograph live events, including talks, workshops and performances. I have worked in the UK and internationally creating content for research agencies, charities, schools, universities, individuals and businesses.

I hold an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London. I also have ten years professional experience as an image-maker, stretching back to my time as a photojournalist for Jornal do Commércio, a regional newspaper in my hometown of Recife. My academic training and extensive practical experience allow me to work with understanding and sensitivity whilst representing people's habits, cultures and environments. I am attuned to capturing the details of people's everyday lives and the ways they communicate, eat, dance, work, pray, interact and shape their homes.

My approach to photography and film-making relies on building an empathetic, personal and respectful relationship with people, applying methods of anthropology, and documentary, alongside poetic imagery and engaging storytelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of tutoring and classroom assistance, and working with children, young people and adults in the UK and Brazil.

My previous experience includes:

Teaching Assistant: Video production for Anthropologists (May 2017)
Spectacle - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers and students on training Course.
- Helping students utilizing video cameras and sound equipment.
- Assisting students using video editing software.
- Assisting students doing practical video exercise in location.

Teaching Assistant: Film (Nov 2013 - Jul 2014)
Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers with classes of young people aged between 9 and 19 years old.
- Providing classroom support during film and drama lessons.
- Assisting individuals and groups with workshop and classroom activities.

Teaching one-to-one classes (Jun 2012 - Jan 2013)
- Planning, preparing and teaching one-to-one Photography and Portuguese courses for young people and adults.
- Responsible for adapting existing material or designing new material to suit individual learning needs.
- Planning and running photographic workshops and day trips for students.
- Marking and providing formative feedback on work.

Teaching and Laboratory Assistant: Photography (Sept 2010 - Sept 2011)
Universidade Católica de Pernambuco - Recife, Brazil.

- Technical, teaching and laboratory assistant for undergraduate courses in Photography and Photojournalism.
- Introducing photographic and darkroom techniques to students.
- Classroom and teaching assistance.
- Responsibility for maintenance and organization of photographic studios and darkroom.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I like to combine theory and hands on practice encouraging people to become independent learners, creative and critical thinkers. I have an empathetic, relaxed and joyful approach to tutoring and like to develop a good relationship with people to ensure that they feel comfortable to learn and to feedback on lessons. I like to work in collaboration with people to tailor lessons according to their needs, interests and levels.

With years of experience practising image making and studding the subject, I believe that theory and practice go hand in hand. With photography and film I think it's important to develop our 'ways of seeing' both by looking at things that have been made and by studding the thinking and mechanics behind these medias. It is also important to reflect on our own practice to develop our abilities and discover our potential.

A hand on experience is key when learning how to photograph and film. It is by practising that we familiarize ourselves and learn how to handle confidently our instrument of work. It's also by practising that we expose ourselves and learn how to deal with the unforeseen events that confront us when we are photographing and filming - be it the instability of light, decisions regarding compositions, interaction with a diversity of people, a great range of emotions that are presented to us while we hold the camera, etc.

I can facilitate photography and film making from camera work to editing for children, young people and adults. Please do get in touch to discuss - I'm always happy to help!
