Personal Description:
My name is Safowan and I'm currently working as a software tester. Having graduated with a 2.1 honours in Mathematics I want to inspire young learners to achieve and fulfil their aims and ambitions during evenings and weekends. Tutoring has always been rewarding for me and it gives me great pleasure to share my knowledge to benefit others.

Teaching Experience:

My experience in teaching ranges from a placement in a secondary school as part of the student associates scheme (SAS) to private tutoring.

During my time at Royal Docks Community School as a Teaching Assistant, I worked closely with senior teachers in the Mathematics department. My daily responsibilities included; assisting pupils with their learning by working with small groups and on a one to one basis, assisting teachers with any administration tasks, occasionally working with SEN students, helping to ensure pupil disruption is kept to a minimum, having performance reviews from head of department, and ensuring school's policies and procedures are maintained at all times.

I also have three years experience in tutoring a range of students, from ks2 through to gcse. This enabled me to gain experience of lesson planning, marking, exam preparation and identifying weaknesses and addressing them according to the student's ability. Therefore, time management played an important role as I had to prepare for each lesson, taking into consideration any changes that might occur in the lesson, and ensure the student learns a topic with enough practice questions under timed lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching would be to tutor my subject in a fun and friendly environment. Mathematics can be a difficult subject to grasp but can be understood better and enjoyable to learn if taught in a more positive and proactive manner. I prefer to explain the very basics of each topic at first before engaging with the student to try out the practice questions. As the student grows in more confidence, they will learn some exam strategies and techniques to overcome exam pressures.

Personal Description:
I am a biological and medicinal chemistry graduate from the University of Exeter, a top-ten university. My degree focuses upon the design and synthesis of drugs and their interaction with biological systems. As such, I have an in-depth knowledge of biochemistry, organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. I have just finished my PhD in physical biochemistry.

I can explain topics within biology and chemistry simply and am willing to help with anything from understanding topics to coursework. At college, I studied the International Baccalaureate, using both A-level and IB textbooks. Due to this, I can teach both IB and A-level students.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching AQA A-level chemistry and GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

Very relaxed and easy going. I would give lessons on the syllabus and try to get the student to participate in them by answering questions. We could then revise topics together to make sure everything is learnt and there are no problems in understanding. This would culminate in looking at past papers and going through model answers.

Personal Description:
I am a reliable and patient person with a likeable personality who relates well to both children and adults. I am conscientious and will discuss all matters with the parents/adult student at home in an informal chat before commencing any teaching sessions. I have a current CRB and I always have a file with this and my qualifications for you to inspect prior to beginning teaching with you. I have a number of private pupils in Stockton, Billingham, Redcar and Middlesbrough, whose parents are more than happy to provide a reference if required.

In 2006 I was one of ten finalists in a national teaching award - QIA STAR Awards.

I have an office in the Elmwood Centre but I also travel around the Cleveland area on some days of the week. This can be by arrangement.

Teaching Experience:

I have 24 years teaching experience, with the last fifteen years teaching English, literacy and creative writing; also, six of the last fifteen years teaching numeracy/maths and ESOL. I have experience in teaching both children and adults, and teaching English to people who are learning English as a second language.

My experience is both classroom based and one-to-one teaching. In addition to being qualified in English, Creative Writing, Maths and ESOL, I am also qualified in supporting learners with dyslexia.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make learning fun, as I believe this will develop a love of learning which will last into adulthood. I use multi-sensory resources, as well as a computer, to enable students to grasp the necessary basic rules of literacy and numeracy. For younger children I will often make, or bring a game that will have a serious learning point to it, although the children do not always realise this.

I am patient and allow all learners to develop their understanding and confidence in literacy and numeracy by giving them time for questions, explanation and discussion. I also believe that giving praise to someone for trying to answer, even if the answer is incorrect, is really important - the fact they have tried means they are willing to learn - this is the one key requirement to building knowledge and confidence in any subject.

Personal Description:
A creative Qualified Languages Teacher and Proofreader, with a variegated working experience in different contexts and multicultural environments.

More than 11 years of study and work experience as a languages teacher and multilingual translator/interpreter/proofreader (Italian, Spanish, French, English and Romanian).

As a teacher I aim to enable my students to enjoy a first-hand experience of what exactly speaking, thinking and reacting in a new language means. Adopting a different mindset enriches their perspectives on life and broadens their horizons.
With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (songs, short films, films, books, newspaper articles, literature) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education and subsequently put into practice in the London schools for which I worked.

My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations and/or to exam requirements (GCSE, A-levels, International Baccalaureate, IELTS, TEFL), according to students' needs.

I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination. Since I am very ambitious, determined and have high expectations, my students and I always work arduously and achieve our objectives.

Offering tuition in Italian, Spanish, English and Romanian at any level (beginners - intermediate - advanced).

Key achievements:
1- Gained a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) from a top tier university (Institute of Education, University of London);

2- Won the National Competition of Romanesque Languages - Italian language section (in 2003 and 2004 with a 10/10 result);

3- Conceived and ran an English language Workshop project for Cranfield University's students, where all had the possibility to teach and learn, revise grammar, discuss and share opinions.

R. Williams, A-level student's parent
Subject: Spanish (GCSE) Outcome: Our daughter received A* in both oral and written exams
An excellent and conscientious tutor, Cerasala has provided excellent support for our daughter in preparation for her Spanish IGCSE. She always comes prepared with topics for her lessons and uses varied and interesting materials to build on the syllabus. She really helped develop confidence in both spoken and written language. She is always on time, reliable and charming.

Ana, Lower Sixth student, The Harrodian School:

"I have known Ms Cerasela since September this year, when she became my private tutor for Italian language.
Ms Cerasela is an extraordinary young teacher. As her pupil I have seen many examples of her talent in linguistics and her broad interests not only in the Italian culture and civilisation but also in British, French and Spanish as well. She communicates her ideas clearly, in a smooth and efficient manner. She is reliable, dynamic and intelligent person with a good sense of humour. It is a pleasure to spend some time with her every week and I benefit a lot from her knowledge.
I will always hold her in the highest esteem and I highly recommend Ms Cerasela as a talented teacher and a great person. "

Ms Agatha, MFL Teacher Elthorn Park High School, London.

"Cerasela assisted me with my IB Italian class, therefore I got to know her very well.
I was not only impressed by her total commitment and dedication to teaching but also by her great linguistic ability and multi - talent in all areas of teaching. She immediately felt at ease with pupils of all ages and quickly developed a warm, positive and trusting relationship in which students felt valued and encouraged to work hard.
Cerasela also was well liked by all members in the Language Faculty because of her ability to work well in a team and for making valuable contribution to the department.
Cerasela's punctuality and attendance record was outstanding because of the fact that she is a very reliable and conscientious person who would never want to let anyone down.
Cerasela would be an asset to anyone who is employing her. I therefore recommend her to you without any reservations."

Ms Gergana, Head of Spanish at Elthorn Park High School, London.

"During her time at Elthorn, Cerasela has demonstrated that she has high expectations of pupils and has been an excellent role model for them.
Cerasela has been a real asset to the department. She shows a clear capacity to evaluate different teaching approaches and to reflect upon her own practice. She has worked very effectively as part of the Modern Foreign Languages team and built rapport with learners.
I cannot comment highly enough her ability to independently plan and research her materials and evaluate her teaching."

Patrizia, Director at CeSPI (Centro Studi Problemi Internazionali) - NGO
" [] she has completely succeeded in organising her own lessons delineating a programme with clear objectives, which has completely brought to completion, proving a clear confidence and the right flexibility and pro-activity in dealing with a totally variegate and stimulating group of students. At the end of the course she has received the maximum of appreciation from both students and teachers for her commitment and professionalism."

Teaching Experience:

9 years of private tuition (Italian/English) to both children and adults in Italy and Romania;
5 years business Italian teacher, Translator and Proofreader;
4 years of Spanish, French and Romanian teacher/private tutor in Italy and UK.

Tutoring Approach:

Aiming to encourage students to develop to their full potential and enrich their linguistic and cultural heritage through the use of cutting-edge language teaching techniques.

With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (music, short films, books, articles) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education (University of London) and then put into practice in the London schools I worked for. These techniques have proved to stimulate and engage students of all ages and language levels.

My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations or to exam requirements, according to students' needs. I have prepared students for: GCSE (Edexcel and AQA boards), A-levels and International Baccalaureate.

I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination. Since I am very ambitious and have high expectations, my students and I have always worked hard and achieved our goals.


Rates:

Fees vary ranging from 25/hour to 35/hour, depending on the number of hours per week, on location (at my house or at student's house) and on whether is ongoing or temporary tuition.


Discounts for lessons booked in advance and for 2:1 and group tuition.
*Travel expenses (minimum 3) may vary depending on how far I have to travel by public transport.

"Absolutely brilliant for Italian tuition, saved my grammar! At first, I was as apprehensive as anyone would be when I thought about tuition over skype - but if anything, it`s more effective. Instead travelling to a tutor, getting tired, getting home and thinking `I`ll just relax with a bit of TV` and then never picking up a book - The lesson was on time and intense, and I wasn`t too tired afterwards to do other revision. Also, when learning grammar, I suddenly remember something I don`t understand - but Cerasela can send me the link to resources immediately rather than having to wait to print them off. Thank you so much Cerasela for everything!"
A-level student testimonial

This is an A-level student`s testimonial who has recently contacted me for face to face tuition. Since she did not live close to my house I suggested we had a trial lesson over Skype. She has been open minded enough to try it and, from her review, the outcome is quite obvious.

Although some students are initially biased towards online tuition, all those who have tried it once have found this money, energy and time-saving way of learning be as effective as face to face tuition, if not even better.

They have all very much appreciated:

- the extremely quick way of receiving resources and taking notes through instant message exchange used to clarify spelling
- the possibility to later retrieve the information
- the possibility to record the sessions and therefore be able to listen again for correct pronunciation and natural intonation
- the opportunity to have lessons at any time, in different places, whether at home or on holiday, without incurring extra travelling costs and waste energy.

I would therefore encourage students to give it a try and do not let themselves be conditioned by unfounded fears. After all, there is nothing to lose, but everything to gain.

Personal Description:
I graduated from MSc Financial Computing at UCL with a distinction and did my bachelor degree in Mathematics (Upper Second Class) at UCL.

Having spent my childhood in Luxembourg, I am fluent in 4 languages (German, French, English and Luxembourgish) and semi-fluent in Swedish. My father is French and my mother is German - thus I am at a native level in both French and German.

Thus I have been tutoring up to 6 students at a time in Mathematics, German and French.

Since I have a strong background in music, having played the piano since the age of 3 and having won several international piano competitions as well as considering a career as a concert pianist, I have also tutored several students in Piano.

I am currently working as a Tableau developer and am thus more than happy to offer tutoring in Tableau.

For further information regarding my CV, it can be found on LinkedIn.

Teaching Experience:

I take pride in my tutoring. All my students have managed to reach their goals, be it personal achievements or needing to be prepared for exams. My most promising student started out with an average of F in German and, a year later, successfully completed his German GCSE with an A.

Tutoring Approach:

All of my students enjoy my teaching style, as it is less formal and thus more relaxed. It has made all of my students motivated as, from my overall experience, the last thing a kid or teenager wants to do outside of school is a lesson that reminds them of school. To make lessons more fun, I am using several apps and websites that enable for a better interactivity within the lessons and allow me to track the progress through some of the apps later on and showcase it to the student's parents. From my experience, this way of teaching enables them to be open to a bigger intake of knowledge and results in faster and more detailed learning.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Yulia. I am a native Russian speaker, fluent in English, graduated in the Russian Federation (Moscow) and worked there later on for over 10 years. For the last four years I have been living and working in the UK and this has allowed me to develop a better understanding of the English language, its cultural nuances, people and life. I was kindly surprised that there are people out there who are truly interested in learning Russian and therefore I felt that I could help them to learn one of the most difficult languages in an easy and affordable ways.
Every year I spend some time in Russia to maintain connection with the Russian language in the most effective way while enjoying company of my family and friends.

Teaching Experience:

If you are planning to learn Russian, you are certainly in the right place. Whether you are a beginner or can speak some Russian already, I will be delighted to help you to learn, improve or master your Russian.
As a Russian tutor I have an experience in teaching Russian both children and adults using the finest adapted educational materials for teaching and learning Russian language as a foreign at all levels. I use a large variety of textbooks with CD and DVD-supplement, training materials for the development of speech, writing, listening and reading comprehension skills, which helps to make the learning process as effective and productive as possible. I currently run a Russian group course for the beginners.
My degree in law and experience in teaching Russian ensures the quality of the final result- you are able to communicate in Russian. I will give full attention to your needs and wishes and provide you with a very honest and friendly service. Being based in the UK I am always easy to reach and deal with.

Tutoring Approach:

In order to make a learning process as interesting as possible I will prepare an individual language plan for you based on your own learning style and ability, language requirements, time commitment and any personal motivations you might have to learn Russian.
If you are learning Russian from scratch and want to become fluent, my aim is to help you to explore the language in its complexity straight from the beginning. From my experience grammar and vocabulary is a key to the successful learning process and ability to communicate with a great confidence but studying just grammar can be quite difficult or daunting, that is why a combination of audio, visual and interactive activities, which I try to integrate into my lessons, help to bring more fun and promising results.

Personal Description:
I am a second year Physics with Astrophysics student at the University of York. I am a confident, mature individual who is driven to be successful. I have a down to earth personality which will make me more relatable and easier to pass on my breadth of knowledge.

Teaching Experience:

The only experience I have with students was in my second year of college. In collaboration with the Maths department, I ran a peer mentoring session with first years every week. This was an hour long meeting in the library or a classroom with 5-6 students, where I would help them with topics they struggled with or go over some details from their lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important and effective way of learning is through practice of the subject. I would use the first part of a session to go over some important points to a topic and teach basic skills. Then put these into practice, going through questions, aided and unaided, including past paper questions.

Personal Description:
I have two main passions: my passion for teaching and my keen interest in Classics. I am currently at the final stage of a joint PhD program in History of Ancient Philosophy between KU Leuven (University of Leuven) and the University of Milan. At both universities, I have had the opportunity to teach Latin Language and Ancient Philosophy. My history made me knowledgeable about Classical Languages and Civilization and an enthusiastic communicator of it to students of different ages.
I attended the 'Liceo Classico', which provides a specific high-school program that strongly focuses on Greek and Latin Languages, Literatures, and Culture, and, more generally, on Humanities. There, I studied the whole history of Greek and Latin literature and I learned to deal with Classical authors in original and to translate even difficult texts.
The desire to deepen into my knowledge of Classical languages and to become a teacher led me to further pursue Classical studies at university. I attended the University of Milan, which is one of the most important universities in Italy and has the biggest Department of Classics. There I developed a solid knowledge in Classical Languages, Literature, Philosophy, and Art. There, I read in original and translated a great amount of texts of the Classical tradition, and learned the methodology for philological research. I gained both my BA's and MA's degrees in Classics scoring 110/110 summa cum laude both times. For my MA thesis, I applied as a Visiting Scholar to the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) where I could perform my research in an eminent Classics Department, taking, amongst others, Professor Martin Bloomer's class on Latin authors.

Teaching Experience:

Alongside my academic career, I continued to pursue my passion for teaching, tutoring high-school and middle-school students in Greek and Latin and in Italian Grammar. Those experiences strengthened my teaching skills and the satisfaction they gave me kept encouraging me in pursuing a teaching career. More specifically, I started to deal with students of different ages and to learn different methodologies of teaching, always in dialogue with older professional teachers. At KU Leuven, I had the chance to teach a seminar on the History of Philosophy for BA Students in the English program. This experience was very challenging and fruitful for deepening my teaching and linguistic skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is not only to provide tutees with knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages and the classical world, but also, and primarily, to support the development of a curious, open and critical mentality, through an actual experience of encounter with the great authors of our tradition. In tutoring, I take the presence of two elements to be essential: on the one hand, a rigorous teaching method, especially if the scope is to learn Latin or Greek grammar, offering a precise and articulate content to students; on the other hand, a constant interaction between the tutor and tutee, calling for the active participation of the tutee and facilitating dialogue and exchanges.
