Personal Description:
I am a native French speaker and I recently graduated in Mechanical Engineering. I have always been passionate about Maths and Physics.

Teaching Experience:

I have been giving casual tuition at secondary school level as well as University level to friends and family. I also explained Maths and Mechanics to university fellow students and friends when they needed help to understand topics I had mastered.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to find interesting ways to explain when the student is confronted to a problem he cannot solve. I make a point of leading my students to their goal while setting good working standards. I like to transmit my dedication to my pupils.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom since December 2009. I am originally from Kumamoto, where I completed a training course at the EII Japanese Language Centre. I have now been teaching Japanese to students of all levels for nearly ten years.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching Japanese in Kumamoto, Japan 10 years ago. I teach both children and adults and from absolute beginners to advanced level students. After moving to England I've been teaching from my home.

I also have 8 years experience of teaching online using Skype and an interactive whiteboard for students all over the world. I have worked for a major Japanese online school for 2 years.

I have taught students who aim to take the JLPT exam, the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (from the1st to 5th grade), and who are studying for The Duke of Edinburgh award.

I have also helped business people who are planning to work for Japanese companies.

My lesson fees are as follows:

Face-to-face lessons

Private Lessons : 25 for a one hour individual lesson (at my home)

Group Lessons
2 people : 20 per person for a one hour lesson (at my home)
3 or more people : Please enquire about availability (at a public venue)
3 people : 18 per person for a one hour lesson
4-5 people : 15 per person for a one hour lesson
6-8 people : 13 per person for a one hour lesson

You can take group lessons with your friends or family members. Discounted lesson rates are available if you can collect a group of between 2 and 8 people.

Online lessons

Private lessons :
20 for a 50 minute individual lesson
25 for a 60 minute individual lesson

6-8 people : 13 per person for a 50 minute lesson / 15 per person for a 60 minute lesson

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by introducing essential sentence patterns and teaching how to use them in practise conversations. I use role-play to make the conversations real and teach how to speak Japanese naturally. You will soon realise my lessons are completely different from normal language studies at school and find that my method is both practical and effective.

Personal Description:
I like helping people improve their maths and Spanish skills.

I enjoy maths, it can be a fun subject to learn (yes really!). I find interesting and fun ways to explain how maths works and then get the pupil to work through questions and problems until they know each step very well.

I specialise in teaching maths at A level and first year university level. I also teach GCSE level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching either one-to-one, or small groups of students for the last 5 years. While I lived in Spain I would teach English to children and adults, as well as teaching A level and University level maths to Spanish students through the medium of Spanish. In the last year I have also started teaching Spanish here in the UK, always trying to pass on my enthusiasm for languages to my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I make the lessons as interesting and as fun as possible, as well as making sure my pupils are good enough at each step before they move on.

Personal Description:
I hold a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and have been a teacher for more than eight years, ever since I graduated from University. I have a Bachelor's degree in English and Spanish, as well as a Master's degree in translation studies (English). I love being a teacher, as I believe that this is a profession that teaches all the professions in the world. I would go the extra mile for my students, always ready to do research, use innovative approaches and high-quality materials to help them achieve and make learning an enjoyable experience.
My students regard me as a positive, open-minded and creative teacher, who is always friendly, helpful and well-prepared.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with a wide variety of learners, including primary, secondary students and adults. I mainly taught English as a second language and I have occasionally taught Spanish. I have a keen eye for detail and I enjoy teaching grammar, vocabulary and essay writing.
I have prepared students to pass their Cambridge exams (FCE, CAE, CPE, IELTS) and have attended numerous training courses and conferences to develop my teaching skills and liaise with other professionals in the field.
I currently teach trainers and teachers, helping them become qualified and complete their Diploma in Education and Training (Level 5). I have designed the course from scratch, using a variety of techniques and resources.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a variety of teaching methods and take into account learners' preferences when I design my lessons. I always go for a differentiated approach when I teach groups of learners and I am always eager to be as inclusive as possible in my approach. This entails using a wide range of resources - technology, games, projects and assessment types - initial, formative, summative, ipsative.
I Iove one-to-one sessions - focusing my attention on one learner will help me detect the gaps in his/her knowledge better and facilitate overcoming any barriers.
I like to design my own handouts. However, when I use books, I try to select the best and most up-to-date materials possible.

Personal Description:
My name is Iakovos and I am a qualified (holding QTS) and experienced teacher. I have been teaching Latin, Ancient Greek, Biblical Greek, Modern Greek, History and Religious Education since 2007. I am passionate about teaching and always looking forward to enriching my knowledge; not only in my areas of teaching, but also in other topics.

I also write poetry. Some of my poems have been published in Greek and Cypriot journals and I have also written two volumes of poetry, which have been published by Anazitiseis publishing house in Cyprus, my home country.

Teaching Experience:

I studied Latin and Greek at the University of Ioannina, Greece. The main subjects of my first degree are the following: Latin Language and Literature (like Roman Satire and Cicero), Ancient Greek Language and Literature (like Homer, Tragedy and Comedy), Byzantine Greek, Modern Greek, Philosophy and History.

After my first degree, I decided to continue my studies at a postgraduate level. I did a Master of Arts in Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. After, I did a Master in Theology, specializing in World Religions, Monasticism and Philosophy. I am currently reading for a PhD at King's College London in Greek and Medical Humanities.

Apart from my long experience as a freelance teacher of Latin and Greek -at all levels: Entry Level, GCSE, A Level-, I also worked as a Latin and Greek teacher in Primary, Secondary and Higher Education in the U.K and other European countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an experienced tutor, as I have long experience in teaching 1:1, small groups of students, as well as groups of more than 20 pupils. Working as a language, RE and History tutor and teacher, my methodology is based on PowerPoint presentations, explaining Latin grammar, for example, through a comparison of Latin and English.

I am an expert user of HOTS (Higher-Order Thinking Skills), which challenge students and help them reach their potentials.

Personal Description:
Highly experienced tutor, currently completing my PhD in chemistry at Imperial College London.

With an enthusiastic approach to learning and a real passion for my subject I develop students into inquisitive, capable learners and consider mentoring students in a love of science to be an important goal.

I achieved the highest grade possible in all science and maths subjects during my school education and having completed my Masters in Chemistry at Oxford in 2011 I have also worked in various roles in industry and academia, allowing me to convey the real significance of science to the students who study with me.

A & A/S-Levels : 4As (2007)
GCSEs : 9A*s, 2As (2005)

Teaching Experience:

Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

I have over three years experience, teaching over 100 students from secondary up to undergraduate level. I am a professionally trained undergraduate tutor and laboratory demonstrator, recently awarded an Associate Fellowship of the HEA in recognition of my contribution to undergraduate learning and my continuing development as an educational practitioner.

As a result of my teaching programme at Imperial College, I was awarded a Student Academic Choice Award - chosen by the students - for excellence in chemistry tutoring and communication.

Alongside my direct tutoring experience I have also taken part in the assessment and development of teaching material in chemistry and in the interview process at Imperial College, allowing me to offer targeted advice for students who wish to excel. Having attended both Oxford and Imperial College I can offer highly relevant admissions advice for university entrance interviews at Oxbridge and London-based institutions.

Working with students from across the world, I have experience of tutoring students whose first language is not English and am familiar with dealing with any issues that arise from this.

Some reviews of my work:

"My teaching experience with Peter has been really positive, he really challenges me to achieve my best and I have particularly developed my critical thinking skills with him" (A-level student)

"Peter is really friendly and helpful, as an international student who has studied in several countries I can say his methods are very strong and he explains complicated topics very well" (A-level student)

"I struggled with several areas of my course before studying with Peter, but now things are so much easier! He can explain things in so many ways when I'm stuck, highly recommended" (GCSE student)

"Peter is one of the best tutors we have had and is always on time and prepared, he is obviously very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches" (Parent of GCSE student)

"My daughter had lessons with Peter for several months and her confidence in the subject increased hugely over this time, I would strongly recommend his services, the improved exam results speak for themselves" (Parent of A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

Having taught scientific subjects up to undergraduate level I have a keen understanding of the different learning styles of students and am able to adapt my teaching to suit the student.

Using various teaching methodologies to deepen understanding, wherever possible I like to employ additional techniques such as scientific software and interactive elements alongside theory in order to bring the subject to life.

Students who study with me are encouraged and supported in developing critical thinking skills, by analysing information more deeply, allowing them to become more efficient, resourceful learners in the future.

I have two main approaches for the students I teach:
For students struggling in a subject I aim to build up confidence in the area by ensuring lessons are relaxed and engaging rather than focused on specific topics. Once a student has become more comfortable in the subject, more targeted study can take place based on the syllabus.
For students who are competent in their subject but need additional support to excel, I take a more focused approach and work with the student on any weak points and advanced topics, supported by exam technique and practice questions.
In both cases I aim to broaden the knowledge of the student beyond specific subject guidelines, with the goal of developing a passion for their subject.

I look forward to hearing from you.
