Personal Description:
Hello.

I am a graduate of Cambridge University. I was previously at a successful, all-girls, private school.

I have top grades in a wide range of GSCEs. I took Spanish, Latin, Ancient Greek and General Studies at A Level and passed with high A grades. I have a first class degree in Classics and Oriental Studies (Middle Eastern and Islamic)

People describe me as friendly and sociable as well as organised and efficient. In my Cambridge college I held various positions of responsibility.

Teaching Experience:

I also have lots of experience as a private tutor teaching all ages and ability ranges.

Most recently I was working as a full time teacher of English at the National School of Aleppo, Syria. I had two grade 6 classes and 4 grade 10 and 11 classes.

During July '08 I taught English as a foreign language at a school in Dubai, UAE. I had my own form class but during the school day I saw 60 children between the ages of 11 and 15.

I have also taught Shakespeare-based workshops to English Primary School children and Japanese High School and University Students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and supportive as a tutor; encouraging my pupils to stretch themselves and achieve their best.

Although I am only young, I feel that I have the right amount of maturity to guide my pupils effectively, and I am also very approachable. Tutoring is not the same as teaching in a classroom, so I do not believe that a Tutor should be the same as a teacher.

Personal Description:
I have a first-class honours degree in History and a master's degree in American Studies (History). During my master's, I specialised in vernacular history, particularly the social, ideological and political significance of post-9/11 Islamic hip-hop.

I am a freelance marketing consultant, with a focus on content and copywriting, working in the tech, property, psychological wellbeing, HR and social development sectors. I am currently away travelling so I can only provide online tuition. I love to read, write, paint and travel.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 8 years' tuition experience, having initially worked as a peer History tutor at Bridgewater State University (USA) in 2008 followed by working as a GCSE English tutor for the Tutor Trust in 2011-12. I have been tutoring privately since 2009.

At the Tutor Trust I delivered small group tuition sessions and taught large group revision classes in Manchester's disadvantaged schools and colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

TUITION
I take a structured approach to tutoring and develop a clear plan with objectives for the student and I to reach together. I work at the student's own pace and provide bespoke tuition which is tailored to the student's needs and learning style. My sessions are clear, engaging and stimulating.

My tutoring style is to facilitate rather than teach. I guide the student in the right direction and provide additional support to help with study skills, time management and organisation skills. Ultimately, I encourage the student to build more confidence in his/her own ability.

PROOFREADING & THESIS SUPPORT
I provide proofreading services for undergraduate and postgraduate coursework. I check grammar and spelling to an excellent standard and offer in-depth feedback on analysis/argument, structure, knowledge/understanding, sources and referencing, and style and presentation to help students to achieve the grade they are aiming for.

Personal Description:
With me as your tutor, not only do you receive a first-class education in a supportive environment, but you also get the benefit of my extensive experience and ongoing research.

Last year, I completed my funded PhD on Samuel Beckett and Theodor W. Adorno at Royal Holloway, University of London. I completed my Masters study in Literature and Philosophy in September 2012, graduating with Distinction, and received a First Class Honours BA in English from Royal Holloway in 2010. Between my Undergraduate and Masters study I worked for a year as an Editorial Assistant in the Health Sciences division of Hachette UK.

I also offer a proofreading service and online tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a Visiting Lecturer at Royal Holloway since September 2014 and have taught on the courses 'Modernist Literature'; 'Reorienting the Novel'; 'Inventing the Novel'; 'Fundamental Questions in Philosophy'; and 'Special Author: Samuel Beckett'. I have received excellent student feedback, with over 95% of my students agreeing that the seminars significantly furthered their knowledge. A number of the students last year identified seminars as the aspect of the course that helped them increase their knowledge and skills, with comments including 'engaging and approachable' and 'very helpful essay feedback'.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student requires entirely different strategies for the optimum level of learning. It is important for them to be taught in a positive and open environment, where they are encouraged not only to develop academically, but also to enjoy the experience of learning.

Whilst I recognise the need to cram for exams in our education system, I still believe that excellent grades can be achieved without compromising original thought and extra-curricular study.

I also offer proof-reading services if you do not require face to face tuition but only some help on a particular piece of work.

Personal Description:
A highly experienced teacher with relevant qualifications. I hold a masters in business studies and also a bachelors degree in civil engineering. I have an enhanced CRB disclosure.

GCE June 2012 update - Business studies student's confirm A level results. Fantastic! Student references available.

Maths Update!! Year 8 & 10 students moved up to higher set maths at school
March Update!! Private tutoring Business studies students achieved A grade in Unit 2 and Unit 3!!

Teaching Experience:

I teach business studies (GCSE, AS/A2) at an independent school in Cambridge. I also do private tutoring in business studies and maths (KS3, GCSE). I have huge resources and materials available from my teaching experience and I know how to prepare candidates for exams.
My maths students are always being moved up a set to a higher level.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure the students understand the topics and check this by using lots of question and answer materials. We go through exam techniques and how to answer questions i.e. what the examiner is looking for. I provide case studies which we discuss and pull out the relevant information required to answer the question. I get the students to do lots of practice in application, analysing and evaluating case studies.

For maths I work on moving the student up a level. I first assess what level the students are at (level 5, 6, 7, 8). If they are at level 5 we work on moving them to Level 6 and above. I always work on moving them up another level

Personal Description:
I am a native English speaker and have been studying languages for 20 years. I have travelled to many countries and experienced many cultures. I know speaking a language fluently is so important to enjoy new experiences. I have a Degree in Linguistics and have been trained in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL/TESOL). I have a variety of experiences in teaching, training and tutoring. Although I am originally from Australia I am now based in London. I have spent time learning Russian, Spanish and German, so I know how useful it is to have someone helping continuing to build vocabulary and correct language use. I also know how hard it can be to get started learning a new language. I will be sure to find out what you want to learn and how you enjoy learning the most.

Teaching Experience:

I have a Degree in Applied Linguistics and have been trained in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL/TESOL). I have a variety of experiences in teaching, training and tutoring in the workplace, in group and one-to-one sessions with both adults and children. Although I am originally from Australia I am now based in Crewe. I have spent time learning Russian, Spanish and German, so I know how useful it is to have someone helping continuing to build vocabulary and correct language use. I also know how hard it can be to get started learning a new language.

Tutoring Approach:

My initial focus will be to spend time finding out what you want to learn and how you enjoy learning the most. My focus will be what you identify as needing help with, as well as giving feedback on how your language skills are progressing. I am most happy providing conversational English practice so that you can improve your skills in interacting with others, either at work, or study or even just travelling with greater ease. I am happy to provide exercises and tasks for you to work on as well as English conversation.
I am happy to meet you wherever is convenient - perhaps a local cafe or library. I can also tutor in my home or yours if that is easier. I am happy to tutor via Skype following a first meeting if travel is an issue.

Personal Description:
I am a current Materials Science DPhil (PhD) student at the University of Oxford. I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge, with degrees of Master of Natural Sciences and Bachelor of Arts (honoured, First Class). I did Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science. In my A-Levels, I obtained A* in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. I have DBS check available if requested.

Teaching Experience:

Since September 2014, I have been tutoring students (from primary school to GCSE, A-Levels and university level) in one-to-one sessions for one year, in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. I helped my students by explaining new concepts, working through examples and past papers. I was also a member of the Study Aid Society at Cambridge, where we shared academic information and learning experiences with each other and students in junior years on a regular basis. During my A-Level years, I also had two years' experience of tutoring junior students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am good at helping tutees solve problems, e.g. worked examples, past paper questions, and I am happy to adjust as needed. I also help to revise and polish Personal Statements for college application as an additional service, for which I am also a member of a qualified education agency.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of German and fluent in English and French. I moved to Cambridge in 2014. I enjoy sport, travelling and cooking.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and highly motivated language teacher from Switzerland. Before moving to Cambridge 3 years ago, I spent more than 13 years teaching secondary school level modern foreign languages in Switzerland, specialising in English, German and French and preparing the pupils for further and higher education. I have tutored students here in Cambridge up to A Level standard, teach at the Deutsche Samstagsschule on Saturday mornings (GCSE level) and also teach adult education classes.
I am keen to share my passion for languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I always look for the most appropriate teaching method to keep my students stimulated and motivated. I use songs, games, visualisations and multimedia to help simplify complex issues, often create my own supplementary course material and regularly revise topics to consolidate learning. Teaching English, German and French as foreign languages has enabled me to appreciate the challenges students face understanding the different grammar structures.

Personal Description:
I am a young qualified Latin and Ancient Greek teacher living in Colchester, Essex. I have moved away from full-time teaching, preferring to explore business interests while continuing with my passion for Classics through tutoring and in my own time.
I have a First Class BA in Classics from Cambridge, where I also studied for and received my teaching qualification (PGCE). I then taught Latin and Greek at a private school (Years 7-13) in London for two years before moving back to Colchester (where I grew up) in August 2016.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher in Classics (PGCE, Cambridge). I taught Latin and Greek for two years at a private school in London to all years from Year 7 to 13.
I have 100+ hours of private tutoring experience, including 25+ hours over Skype, in Latin and Greek from Common Entrance to A level.
My other experience includes:
I am currently also tutoring Maths A level (Edexcel) and English as a foreign language to an Italian who needs to pass her IELTS.
I also have experience in 11+, common entrance and Oxbridge interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

My strengths lie in making my tutees relaxed and comfortable: my students work hard and learn not because they have to, but because they want to. I learn where my students need to improve and how my students learn best and adapt my sessions to their needs. Some students need to learn by rote, others need to put it into practice. However we do it, my students and I work together to reach our targets and achieve success with dynamic and enjoyable lessons.

Personal Description:
Being brought up in a family passionate about Chinese literature and culture meant that I was immersed in the classics at a young age. Throughout my childhood, I learned to value and memorize texts such as the eloquent verses of the Classic of Poetry and the Dream of the Red Chamber stirred within me a search for beauty in the literary traditions. Therefore, I was trained to be a well-read person and good writer.

After seventeen, I left China and attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. During undergraduate, I doubled majored in Communication and East Asian Studies. Also, I had one exchanged semester in Amsterdam and studied at Waseda University in Tokyo for a summer as well. After I graduated from college in the U.S, I decided to start a new journey in the U.K, because University College London is an ideal place for me to learn British and French art history. I love to travel, to make friends from all around the world, and to learn different languages and cultures.

In addition, during undergraduate, I interned at oral history recording organizations, such as the Shoah Foundation established by Mr. Steven Spielberg, to collect documents, translate texts and organize data. Right now, as a MA student, I am working as a part-time freelance translater and writer at the artnet News and a part-time intern at the Creative Time Media to write reports on its WeChat platform (around 300,000 followers), with each report of around 20,000-time browsing. I believe these working experiences of me are beneficial for my communication and teaching.

Having studied in China, Japan, the Netherlands, the U.S and the U.K, and having been to twenty-four countries, I am always willing to explore something new and gain more interesting experiences. I would like to be a tutor in mandarin, because I hope to know foreign friends who have passion for Chinese language and culture. As a language learner myself, I can understand the difficulty as well as the excitement to get into the field of a foreign culture. Looking forward to meeting a Chinese culture lover and enjoy this great journey of studying together!

Teaching Experience:

1. From 2011.5 to 2012.8, after I finished my college application, I worked as a tutor in my hometown Changsha to help foreigners learn mandarin.

2. In the summer of 2013, I worked as a tutor at the New Oriental Education Inc. in Changsha to help Chinese students deal with the GRE test.

3. From 2016 summer till now, I worked as a part-time freelance consultant and tutor at the New Oriental School Inc. to help high school and undergraduate students review and polish their UK and U.S colleges and graduate schools' applications.

Tutoring Approach:

1. introducing games and humor into my tutoring

2. using multi-media tools

3. assigning some homework

4. doing quizzes at the end of each class

5. We could always discuss about the style and format of tutoring, because each individual has his/her own preferred way of studying. I will adjust my teaching approaches to cater to the students' needs and reach a balance between the requirements of the tutor and tutee.
