Personal Description:
I am an experienced industrial chemist, having postdoctoral experience with Avecia and GSK. I then retrained as a teacher and have taught at all levels from school to University. My experience covers A-levels and Advanced Higher. I have six years teaching experience, which includes 3 years at FE colleges, 1 year at University and 2 years at secondary school. As a home tutor and online tutor I have two years experience. Some of my students needed A's to enter Medicine or veterinary medicine. With my help they pulled their grades up to get this. Other students just wanted to pass and sometimes they surprised themselves by getting B's. I have taught dyslexic students as they were struggling with traditional teaching at school or college. My visual and imaginative teaching style has helped many of these students. In fact this approach helps all my students. Based in France I am limited to online tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching in schools, colleges and University. My experience covers A-Levels, HND, HNC and University. I also specialize in private tuition which I enjoy very much. Many tutors are students or graduates who do not have teacher training. I am a professional educator who provides quality tutoring at very reasonable rates.

Tutoring Approach:

All my students get a tailored learning approach and regular feedback at the end of each tutoring session. Underpinning my tutoring is exam preparation. Students are coached to understand the marking process. During the tutorial session students work hard by solving problems and formulating their own conclusions. In fact I work on the principle "don't tell teach". In first tuition I will provide proof of qualifications. With advances in technology online tuition provides an excellent alternative to home tutoring. I can talk to students face to face via skype. We can also communicate via an online white board (its online so you have nothing to install on your computer). All you need is a computer, internet, skype and a micro. I will give a short free trial tutorial before paid tutorials. If you are not satisfied we part company no obligation.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during lessons, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. Reading can be done in either setting, however it is important that both the tutor and learner participate in the process. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring.

Personal Description:
My name is Lenka and I am an experienced and qualified language teacher. I am passionate about languages and I love teaching. I have traveled a lot and lived in different countries. I studied Spanish and French literature at an Italian university and lived in Spain where I studied Spanish language, culture and journalism. I qualified as a secondary language teacher at Lancaster University and worked as a teacher in the independent sector for 7 years. I am a native Czech speaker. I am currently on maternity leave and can only tutor from home during the day. I cannot offer evening lessons or flexible arrangements.

Teaching Experience:

tutor in a language school teaching all year groups and individuals
teacher in two comprehensive schools teaching KS3, KS4 and Sixth Form
language teacher in an independent boarding school (13-18) teaching Spanish, French and Italian at GCSE and A-level
tutor in adult education
vast experience with private language tutoring

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching philosophy is that a thorough knowledge of grammar as well as the ability to communicate is essential for learning a language successfully. I advocate a communicative approach and I teach in a relaxing atmosphere so that my students feel at ease and not afraid of communicating in a foreign language and at the same time they can learn by assessing their own mistakes.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge with over two and a half years' tutoring experience. I hold a BA Hons (Cantab.) degree in Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic studies, an academic field involving a broad range of skills, ranging from literary and historical analysis to linguistic history and translations, with particular emphasis on the learning of languages.

I tutor Latin, which I studied to degree level, and Italian, which is my second language. I also tutor English, up to GCSE level.

As a tutor I have helped pupils ranging from the ages of 10 to 16 win places at schools such as Haberdashers Aske's and St Paul's, and, as a former member of the Cambridge Footlights, I'm a great believer in the entertainment there is to be found in education. Learning anything new is rewarding, fulfilling and life-affirming, and therefore, with the right teacher, captivating and inherently entertaining. I try to bring that ethos to everything I teach.

Teaching Experience:

Working with and assisting children at KS2 level at local primary school, Perry Hall, Wednesfield. Taught Year 5 children basic IT skills. Supervised and assisted children with reading at KS2 level. Assisted with teaching of History lessons and Music lessons. Helped organise outdoor activities.

Running theatre/comedy workshops at public schools across the country such as Haberdashers' Aske's Boys School, Downe House, Uppingham School, King's College School Wimbledon and Framlingham College, as member of Cambridge Footlights.

Personal Description:
I am a native Russian with a university diploma of engineering, have copleted courses of Teaching Russian as a foreign language. Now I am living in Plymouth and would like to continue my teaching practice.

Teaching Experience:

In Moscow I taught expats and their family members Russian as a foreign Language. They were drawn from a wide variety of nationalities and linguistic level. My students worked for companies such as Alfa-Bank, VTB, JTI, Les Laboratoires Servier, Adidas Russia, Kellogg's, Eurocopter, ROCA and others. Although some students were private, for the most part, they were referred to me from the Language schools that I have had a long association with.

Tutoring Approach:

I do believe that there is no one universal method of teaching. I have always adapted my approach individually, matching the learning style of my students. As a basic I take the Communicative method which allows me to quickly recognise students' strengths and weaknesses.

Personal Description:
I am a Taiwanese who base in Edinburgh. Before I moved back to Scotland in 2014, I was a doctoral student at the University of Chicago in Greek and Latin. I have a BA degree in history from National Taiwan University (2006). After I spent a year studying Greek and Latin at Trinity College Dublin (2005-6), I gained a post-baccalaureate certificate in Greek and Latin from Columbia University in the City of New York (2008) and then a MPhil in Latin from the University of St. Andrews in 2011. Afterwards, I spent three years pursuing PhD research on Greek and Latin at the University of Chicago. At the present, I am photographing Edinburgh and Dublin and preparing my portfolio, exhibition, and photo books. I am very much enthusiastic about finding knowledge in both textual and visual worlds. Moreover, I am writing stories about Taiwanese diaspora for a journal in Taiwan. When it comes to Latin, I am currently reading Statius, Tibullus, and Seneca because I believe learning Latin is a life-long career that requires one's enthusiasm and dedication.

Teaching Experience:

I have been learning Latin for more than a decade, at National Taiwan University, Trinity College Dublin, Columbia University, the University of St. Andrews and the University of Chicago. I have TAed and taught Latin in Taiwan and the States. During this period, I have helped Cambridge University Press to translate Cambridge Latin Course series into Chinese Mandarin. During my stay in Chicago (2011-13), I also helped young people who have learning and reading difficulty.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:
Apart from solving the problems of your school work, we will do more exercise, such as unseen translation and English-Latin translation, to find out your weak and strong points. The exercise will help me prepare materials that will help you memorise syntax, vocabulary, and grammar. Grammar can be very boring and put down students' interest in Latin. However, learning through reading interesting, alien, and exotic stories will enhance students' motivation to look into the Roman Antiquity. Reading will also more effectively shed lights on the parts of grammar and syntax we need to make up. Moreover, I will show you how to master speech recognition tactics in order to develop a stronger reading comprehension. I believe in the end of this course, we will have a better understand of Latin as a language and Latin literature as a whole.




English
I have been learning English since I was fifteen. I have overcome many difficulties, such as taking language exams, living in foreign lands, and doing academic works. I will share those experience with you. This tutoring will focus on the various needs and interests of individual students. You may bring the materials that interest you. We also can look into big books, newspapers or stories covering your the stories of your country. We can also look into websites which offer wonderful resources for people whose first language is not English, such as BBC. By reading, listening and discussing together, I will help you find out your weak points and we will start from there.

View Kay's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
My name is Kay and I have 17 years' experience as a tutor in all of the following subjects and levels:

1) English at Primary level (Years 1 to 6), KS3 , GCSE (Language & Literature) and A level Literature.
2) Maths at Primary level (Years 1 to 6).
3) History at KS3, GCSE and A level.

I also have 20 written references from parents, for students of various abilities, across all these subjects and levels.
I have an English-related degree (in History- which included some English modules within the degree), and I have a Level 1 City & Guilds Teaching Certificate in English.

I also have a proven track record of improving student's grades, regularly improving them by 1 to 2 grades, often in less than 1 year's tuition. For example, in English, I recently tutored a student at GCSE level- he had been predicted C grades in both Language & Literature, but after just 8 months' tuition with me, he achieved an A in his GCSE English Language exam and an A* in his English Literature exam. This is typical of my success over the years as a tutor.

I use National Curriculum Resources for all tuitions. Furthermore, I have great experience tutoring all abilities from the gifted and talented to those with Learning Disabilities (I have regularly taught students with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Asberges).

I can either travel to the student's home or they can come to me. I am available to tutor on all evenings of the week, Monday to Friday, as well as in the daytime.I tutor through most of the School holidays, providing the opportunity for students to put in extra revision during these periods.

Teaching Experience:

As a full-time tutor, I have built up an extensive knowledge of the National Curriculum and the various exam boards.
I have also built up a wealth of National Curriculum Resources for English, Maths and History : my 3 main subjects.

For English, I have resources covering the following: Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar , Phonics, Vocabulary, Sentence structure, Comprehension and Creative Writing.

For Maths, I have resources from the very basics: Number Bonds and Counting up and down at KS1, to the 4 operations & main topics : for example Fractions , Decimals and Percentages at KS2 . Also, I have books for Gifted and Talented Maths students at the top of KS2 level.In addition, I have an extensive resource base of past exam papers in all subjects and levels.

For History, I have National Curriculum Resources for the various exam boards and plenty of past papers.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in making students feel at ease in the lessons, and in offering plenty of encouragement during the tuitions to build the student's confidence in the subject I am teaching.

I generally teach a topic to a student , and then set practice questions for the student to attempt based on my teaching.I am open to setting homework for the students, but always liaise with the parents as to whether they want their child to have any and if so how much.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, professional, patient and successful private tutor. I have a BA in History (1st Class) and a Masters in Medieval Studies (Distinction); a course jointly run by the History and English departments at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Aside from Higher Education I have 10 GCSE's A-C (including English Language (A), English Literature (A), History (B), Latin, Science and Maths). I obtained 4 A Levels in English Language, History, Psychology and General Studies as well as an AS Level in Law.

Teaching Experience:

I have a strong amount of teaching and tutoring experience - across a range of levels in both English and History:

- KS2 English
- KS3 English
- ALAN
- GCSE English Language and Literature
- As/A Level English Language, Literature and History
- Higher Education History and Academic Writing

Fortunately these have been very successful, and I have been consistently able to improve client results. Over time I have seen that the areas I am able to impact most are essay writing and exam techniques.

I also work full-time in the recruitment field and, as a result, have been able to offer help with University Personal Statements, College Applications and CV and Interview techniques, should this be required.

Previous feedback:

From Michelle (5/5): (GCSE English) "Fantastic Teacher, she is everything you could ask of an English tutor. We are so glad we found her."

From Vivien (5/5): (A-Level History) "My daughter is receiving excellent help and guidance from Rachel with both English and History AS work."

From Samantha (5/5): (GCSE English) "First Tutors helped us to find Rachel , she has helped our daughter with her English and given her alot more confidence. Rachel is very easy to talk to and get along with putting students at easy. I can't thank Rachel enough, for her help and support."

From Lynn (5/5): (A-Level History) "Rachel has been an excellent tutor for my daughter Harriet and has helped her to gain confidence and understanding in her English and History A Level course. We have been very pleased with the attention to detail and enthusiasm that Rachel gives to the subject in a relaxed and personable manner. I would highly recommend Rachel as a Tutor."

From Adam (5/5): (GCSE English) "We cant recommend Rachel strongly enough. When we first sought her help, our son was coasting through school, under-performing in English and showing no interest in changing it. With her help just once a week, he is now up to a B average - an of course this has a positive effect on so many other subjects where good English skills are required (history, RE etc). If only she covered the maths & sciences too!"

From Libby (5/5): (GCSE English) "Rachel is a very good tutor, working with my son at his speed. She has given him ideas to look at and explore in his English GCSE. I am hopeful that through her help Sam will do well this year. Sam engages with her too which is really important."

From Carol (5/5): (Secondary English) "David felt very relaxed and comfortable during his lessons with Rachel. She had put a lot of thought into them and fully addressed the problems he is having at school. After 6 lessons he already feels more confident in presenting his work in the way it is required by the school. He left each lesson feeling very positive. He will be continuing his lessons with Rachel."

From Clare (5/5): (Secondary English) "We have been extremely pleased with Rachel's tutoring. Rachel has understood Bronti's needs and taught her the correct level of English. Rachel makes the lessons interesting, whilst also challenging in a way that isn't obvious to Bronti."

From Sue (5/5): (A-Level English) "Dear Rachel, Thank you very much for all the help you have given Alex so far with her AS studies, in particular English and essay writing. She is becoming much more confident and positive about approaching homework tasks and felt she coped well with her first exam today due to the preparation sessions with you over the Xmas holidays. Compared to when she started I would say she is much happier now about her English studies, which is great. I am delighted with the change in her motivation and she is very keen to continue working with you on improving her essay writing techniques. Once again many thanks"

Tutoring Approach:

I practice what I preach - and I believe that this comes across in my tutoring. I absolutely love learning and studying. I am an enthusiastic person who genuinely wants to help people achieve their potential in their desired field and take great pride in the successes my clients have achieved after sessions with me.

Sessions are relaxed and informal; I create a friendly environment where people want to learn and feel comfortable doing so. I try to be as flexible as possible; I am happy to ramp up the sessions in the run up to exams, but also to scale back during quieter periods and also change days/times on an ad hoc basis. I encourage my tutees to contact me outside of sessions if they ever need any help - you don't have to wait a whole week to speak to me again!

There is, however, a formal element to learning and I do expect commitment and homework will be set on a regular basis (as long as there is capacity alongside school/college/university commitments).

It's not a case of 'one size fits all' and I enjoy working with my clients to help them to understand their best style of learning and to adapt my teaching style as required. Sessions with me can often mean going through past papers and helping with homework to fun quizzes and games!

On the whole, my aim would be not only to teach, but to inspire my tutees and instill a sense of confidence in their own abilities.

Personal Description:
I am a Tutor in English for Academic Purposes at a large UK university. In this role I teach both Academic English and General English.

Over the past thirteen years I have taught in the UK, Italy and Libya. I have taught in private schools, state schools and universities. In addition, I have taught students of all levels from beginners to advanced and all ages from 3 to adult.

I am an experienced online tutor with over 250 hours taught via Skype.

Teaching Experience:

Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes at the University of South Wales (5 years)

Teacher Trainer/English Teacher British Council Libya (3 years)

British Institutes Trento, Italy (2 years)

Private tutor in TESOL (2 years)

Cambridge IELTS examiner

Cambridge IGCSE Assistant Examiner

General English, Academic English and English for Specific Purposes (e.g. Business English)

Tutoring British and European History ages 11-18 (UK)

Tutoring Approach:

In teaching English as a foreign language I follow the communicative approach. This means plenty of communication between the student and tutor, rather than spending the whole lesson working through grammar exercises.

My lessons are student centred, which means that each lesson is about the student. My materials are carefully tailored to the individual student and not a 'one text fits all' course book. I try to make my lessons relevant to my student's needs, for example, if you are a chef I base my lessons on cookery; if you work in a shop I base my lessons around retail; and if you are studying for IELTS or residency, I will tutor you for that. Just tell me what you want to do and I will do my very best to help you realise your dream.

Personal Description:
I am a native Greek speaker, having been born and raised in Greece. I had an inclination and passion towards foreign languages from a young age, which resulted into my learning English and French as a primary and secondary school student and Japanese and a little Korean as a high school and university student. I have a BA in English Language and Literature from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece and I am currently studying for my MSc in Comparative Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I also hold several foreign language certificates.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously worked as a tutor of English as a Foreign Language (EFL), teaching mostly primary and secondary school children as well as preparing adults for English language exams and certificates. I have also taught Greek to foreigners and elementary Japanese.

Tutoring Approach:

I always tailor my lessons according to my students' needs, strengths and weaknesses. I like using textbooks as a base for my teaching but multimedia and extra material is an integral part of my lessons, since they not only enhance the learning experience but they also keep the learners' interest intact and help them attain some original contact with their target language.
