Personal Description:
My first teaching job was in Kenya when I was 19, and since then I have taught English in Mexico, Brazil, Japan and England. My students have ranged from 4 to 94, and from beginners to doctors and academic researchers, focusing on conversation, business, or exams, depending on the student's needs.

I have a passion for language, whether listening to strangers on the bus or exploring grammatical structures, and my students pick up my enthusiasm and enjoyment.

I have written a book on psychology, linguistics and science, edited children's books and academic texts, and worked as a translator of both Portuguese and Japanese.

My BSc is in Life Sciences with the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, and I am interested in nearly everything, except football and cars.

Teaching Experience:

2010-present: ESL teacher, language coach for academics, and private tutor to Japanese kids.

2006-2010: Private English tutor (in MG, Brazil).

2001-2005: High School teacher and private tutor (in Kyoto, Japan)
1999-2001: Elementary and Junior High School English teacher, also special needs class (in Fukushima, Japan).

1997: Teacher for tortillas and lodging in the jungle (in Chiapas, Mexico)

1995: Volunteer school teacher of English, Science & Maths (in rural Kenya)

Tutoring Approach:

I use only English in my lessons, encouraging my students to speak as much as possible, and to correct their own or each other's errors wherever possible.

My emphasis is on fluency, natural language and confidence, so when teaching grammar or considering problems, the student can refer to concrete examples in their heads, rather than abstract formulae in textbooks.

I use a broad range of materials, techniques, and situations, setting high standards and pushing my students to work hard towards accuracy and creativity in English.

Though I am happy teaching one-to-one, I find that a group of two to four students can be more dynamic, more relaxed, and a better environment for free expression and mutual correction. If you agree, I might invite you to join a class of students at a similar level, which makes the lesson much more economical for you.

Personal Description:
Hi,
my name is Simona, from Milano, I am a highly responsible and dedicated professional Italian teacher with 10 years working experience.

I graduated at Faculty of Literature and Philosophy and specialized in Italian for Foreigners Center-CIS (Diploma)
University of Bergamo, which is equivalent to DITALS

Adaptable and open minded with good manner and good communication skills. A very good team member. I am also an artist and I enjoy the challenges of new opportunities.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Italian to immigrant adults for CGIL (Italian Trade Union) and to foreigner young people (7-17 years old) in public schools in Italy. I have been working in London as an Italian teacher for the last 4 years for some private Language Schools and I am now teching also to ACL Adult Learning Surrey council. I have gained experience in various contexts: Classes, One to One, Italian for Business and specific topics such as art and cuisine.
I can provide one-to-one and group courses in all level.

Tutoring Approach:

Teach­ing is a cre­ative job and this is why I enjoy it so much. It is very impor­tant to me to pre­pare my lessons carefully, so that they are inter­est­ing, dynamic, fun and of course tai­lored to the needs of each of my stu­dents. I like to use a vari­ety of teach­ing mate­ri­als such as books in Ital­ian, Ital­ian songs, games and videos. I like to pre­pare my own mate­r­ial and exer­cises and I love to invent fun and enter­tain­ing role-play games. I always make sure stu­dents feel con­fi­dent about their skills and their abil­ity to speak Italian."

Personal Description:
I am London-based, with experience in tutoring English Language and Literature to secondary students from the ages of 13 to 16. I am particularly focused on years 10 to 11 and the Language/Literature GCSEs. I am familiar with the AQA and OCR exam boards, and I understand the stresses facing many students at this point in their academic life.

Teaching Experience:

To date, I have been tutoring part-time, however I would now like to move into it on a fuller basis. I also have experience of teaching English to people for whom it is not a first language, and I can draw on this where some GSCE students may not always have lived in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient and understanding of the pressures facing many young people at this point in their academic life. However I will also work to ensure that they challenge themselves to get the very best results, to an aim to building knowledge of English as subject and self-confidence in their ability to tackle and enjoy it.

Personal Description:
I have always had a very approachable manner as a teacher as I have always believed that this is the best way to relax a pupil and make their mind more pliable to different approaches. I fully understand that mathematics can be a challenge, and this I believe is where my very patient and empathetic demeanour can produce results quickly and restore a pupil's self-belief. I am thorough in my preparation, professional in my presentation of written materials, and prompt and comprehensive with marking. I will be reliable, wholly courteous, and totally focused on the pupil's development.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a qualified teacher since 2006. From 2005 to 2012 I taught at Swansea College (now, Gower College Swansea) on a range of programmes including BTEC courses, GCSE and A-level Mathematics. While at Swansea College I continued tutoring mathematics privately, building my knowledge of the demands of Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and developing a range of strategies to effectively teach those specifications.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe that mathematics is based on a number of core principles, and success in mathematics depends on a concrete understanding of these principles rather than rote learning of topics. My private tutoring sessions are always designed around the effective delivery of these principles. I am always flexible in my approach, and I understnd that a pupil's attention may be distracted by something that they remember they have covered in a formal lesson. However, my commitment to ensuring that the principles are understood will not change. My lessons last for 1 hour and 20 minutes, and incorporate a 5-minute introduction to the objectives for that session, 1 full hour of teaching and a 15-minute review at the end.

Personal Description:
A qualified maths teacher, DBS checked, with a first class honours degree. I've worked successfully with over 250 students.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students at KS3, GCSE and A level. This has included 1 to 1 support, past paper practice and revisiting of skills and topics to build confidence and motivation as students work towards their exams.

I have a first class maths degree from the Open University and a PGCE in teaching secondary mathematics from the University of Southampton (2016) for which I was awarded the Dean's List.

I currently tutor maths full time at GCSE, A level and KS3.

Tutoring Approach:

I am approachable, developing positive working relationships with both students and parents and I offer tutoring bespoke to your needs. I can teach or recap topics from KS3 through to A level and/or provide focused exam preparation.

My tutoring fully addresses the challenges presented by the style of question and content of the 9-1 GCSE exam that starts in 2017.

The tutoring I offer will unlock your potential to get the best grade possible in the available time. As well as maths content, additional skills addressed include exam technique, timing and confidence.

Personal Description:
An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, I teach Maths up to A-Levels and beyond and have been teaching for 10 years now.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher (QTS) registered with UK National College of Teaching and Leadership. I work in an outstandingly high achieving Grammar school near London.

So far I have tutored over 100 students on a 1-1 basis in the past 7 years alone. This is over 4000 hours of tutoring (40 weeks for each student a year X 100 students = 4000 hours)!

Moreover, I work as a Grammar school teacher and I am required to deliver outstanding lessons in accordance with the OFSTED Framework. Hence I have an accurate and in-depth knowledge of the most recent syllabus changes and the exam boards. That combined with my daily touch of solid Maths puts myself in a very strong position to very quickly and thoroughly assess the educational needs of a student and then build upon their strengths. My lessons are Laser sharp and objective oriented wherein I intend to achieve a very concrete goal at the end of each of my tutoring sessions.

With this immense experience, I have developed an approach which is very simple. I make the lessons fun and engaging. I try to promote interest in the subject so learning Maths becomes fun and an ongoing natural process. Students take this into the school environment and start seeing the results immediately. This reduces the burden from Maths and hence my students can focus on other subjects and achieve well holistically. (It's not about getting an A* just in Maths. I know that!!)

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching Pedagogy: The vast majority of One-2-One tutors simply 'turn-up-and-teach' without adequate preparation. Maths is mostly about 'understanding', and less about 'throw up facts'. A tutor gets ONE CHANCE to impart 'understanding' in a clear and coherent way. Not having prepared and risking an incomplete, confused or incoherent explanation instills confusion in the student, rather than confidence.

• Regular feedback and homework: Most tutors either set no homework at all or thoughtlessly set exercises from a textbook containing inappropriate questions. My homework is specifically written to complement the lesson, containing some questions designed for routine practice and some questions designed to challenge the student; encouraging them to 'think' and to develop their logical capacity.

• Exam Practice: I give students plenty of past paper practice - but only at the right time, once they have a deep understanding of all of the individual topics within the syllabus. Far too many tutors use exam papers to 'teach' from, which means they are setting papers when the student isn't ready: The upshot of that is the student's scores fluctuate wildly and their confidence is destroyed.
The lessons are invigorating, inspirational and cutting edge as I keep a very thorough hold on my subject.

Personal Description:
I am a post-Doctorate biologist with years of experience in leading academic institutions such as Oxford University and King's College London. I am passionate about teaching and student mentoring. I am constantly striving for excellent educational material, featuring high quality illustrations, as I believe in using the latest technology to facilitate my student's actual comprehension of the wonderful science that is biology and not merely memorising! At the same time I consider mentoring a calling; a great responsibility but highly rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my years as an academic, I have had the opportunity to guide a number of medicine and dentistry undergraduates as well as PhD students through their graduation, motivating them for high performance without undermining the demanding nature of their studies and providing support where needed.
In addition, I have tutored students for preparation for SAT and A-level exams, who achieved their first choice of university.

Tutoring Approach:

My experience in academia has provided me with a thorough understanding and appreciation of the student profile that is desirable in leading universities. Finally, as I have extensive experience in writing articles for publication in renowned journals and presenting in international conferences and meetings as well as in multiple interviews, I am able to provide high level coaching for interviews for entry into competitive institutions as well as personal statement coaching.

I only take on a limited number of students, as I want to be able provide only the highest level of teaching and mentoring.
