Personal Description:
Recently returned to the UK to live near my family after teaching abroad for many years. I have 2 teenagers who no longer need my constant attention. I enjoy speaking other languages and love teaching, especially one to one teaching, where I can focus all my attention on the individual.

Teaching Experience:

1976-1987 EFL teaching in the UK and abroad. 6th form, secondary and adult. Also some ESL and home teaching.

1988- 2008. Primary teaching 3-12 year olds. I am trained in Early Years teaching. For 9 years I was the English Language Support coordinator in a large international school. My responsibilities included assessing children's needs, planning and teaching English as an additional language throughout the Infant and Junior school, improving reading skills and helping train other staff in the above. I have regularly tutored individuals and small groups of children after school.
I have recently completed a course in "Big Writing" with Ros Wilson of Andrell Education, focusing on improving writing skills from KS1 to KS3

2009- present. Nursery teacher and part time Modern languages/ Supply teacher in KS2

Tutoring Approach:

Each person's needs are different and my first job is to develop a trusting relationship so that I can quickly assess the priorities. Building confidence in prior knowledge comes next. It's important to pace the lesson so that there is just enough pressure but no stress. I like to work on all 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) whatever the goal of the class, and to that end use a variety of resources; books, cards, games, music, computer. I am a very good listener and have unlimited patience. I constantly make students aware of the progress they are making which builds confidence and speeds up learning. I set very high but reachable standards.

Personal Description:
I am a Spanish native experienced tutor - I have prepared students from many schools and they have successfully achieved top marks ! I enjoy teaching and I am patient, flexible and I try to make the lessons interesting so the students not only learn but also enjoy their time learning a foreign language. I am fluent in Italian and Portuguese and have A-level in French and GCSE level in German. My degree from university was a BSC in Economics so I also love maths !
I can provide references from many students in West Sussex , Forest Row, Oxted, Lingfield, Tunbridge Wells, Uckfield, Horsham. Please ask as I am happy to provide names and number of current or past students.

Teaching Experience:

Over 20 years teaching Spanish - mostly giving support for Gcse and A level exams - but have also prepared students from different universities and have helped English native teachers to prepare themselves to teach Spanish at different secondary schools !
I can offer support all year on a regular basis and can also help with intensive or crash courses near the time of exams. I have some availability during the week and also offer weekend lessons. I live in East Grinstead, West Sussex.
I have taught groups as well and have worked in the past for agencies that have clients that needed Spanish for business (Like British Airways before merging with Iberia).

Tutoring Approach:

I am flexible and patient. I like to see progress and be effective and also give my hundred percent to make it enjoyable - My previous students can give references and will be pleased to tell others of their top marks !
I have plenty of experience tutoring mainly Spanish, but also English as a foreign language.

Personal Description:
I am a fairly recent (but mature) graduate who is hugely enthusiastic about learning. For fun I like to dress up as a Tudor and take part in Living History events. I also very much like to take my slightly dopey dog to the beach where I regularly need to prevent her swimming to France!

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of teaching was through home-educating my daughter from when she was 6 through to GSCE-level. I then went on to do a PGCE in Lifelong Learning (post-16 education) during which time I taught a range of business and tourism modules. Since completing my PGCE I have completed short-term contracts teaching English as a Foreign Language. Presently, I work part-time as an enabler for physically and/ or mentally disabled students in higher education and part-time as a private tutor.I have experience tutoring adult learners, home-educated students (i.e. delivery of full syllabus) and students who are at school but need additional subject help, for example with exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand how important it is to have a supportive and patient teacher who is willing to answer any question any number of times until the student 'gets it' and that's what I am always prepared to do. I think learning should be fun and relevant to our lives and endeavour to carry this over into lessons. The exact approach would always depend on the needs and wishes of the student.

Personal Description:
I gained a 1st class degree in Modern History at Oxford University in 2009, specialising in the history of conflicts such as the Northern Irish troubles and Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I have also completed an MA in International Relations at Yale University, where I came top in the year for academic achievement. During my studies at Yale, I taught undergraduates classes in social science and discovered a passion for teaching.

In addition to my academic and teaching experience, I have considerable professional experience in international affairs. I have worked in The Hague for a non-governmental organisation working to build empathy in communities divided by conflict. I have two years of experience project managing international development projects, especially education projects in conflict-affected areas. I have two years of experience as a management consultant working on projects for UK central government departments. I have also carried out part-time research for universities and think tanks.

Teaching Experience:

I have significant teaching experience working with both children and adults at different stages of their academic development.

In 2013, I was a Teaching Fellow at Yale University, delivering social science lessons to classes of over 20 undergraduate students each week. I prepared my classes, coordinated the logistics of the classes with the professor, graded the students' problem sets and provided one-to-one tuition to students.

I have provided private tuition to students for A Level and GSCE in a range of subjects including English, History and Political Science.

I also have provided Oxbridge preparation for students applying to Oxbridge for History and Classics. This included providing preparation materials, interview advice and interview practice.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and diligent tutor who creates tailored lesson plans based on the needs of the individual student. I am patient with students and committed to helping them understand the material and realise their potential in examinations.

Personal Description:
Cambridge graduate with over 150 hours tutoring experience

Teaching Experience:

Since graduating from the University of Cambridge in 2014 with a BA in English, I have accrued over 150 hours of tutoring. I have taught students from ages 11 to 18.

I have previously tutored for 13+, scholarship, GCSE, AS, A-Level and University. In recent months, I have helped my students to achieve:
A* at GCSE (up from a B)
A at A-Level (up from a C)
A at AS Level, coursework (up from a C)

I have also assisted students applying to Oxbridge - helping with interview technique, which subjects to choose at A-Level and general tips for success. My most recent tutee for Oxbridge assistance has just started her first year at the University of Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

My tailored approach to the needs of each individual tutee enables me to provide a high level of support. It is important to me to teach in a way that engages students; encouraging their strengths by discovering what interests and excites them, and giving them the confidence to work on their weaknesses. I have a natural enthusiasm for the subjects I teach, and believe that learning should never be dull or prescriptive!

I would love to hear from you, so please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Personal Description:
I am a very well qualified and very experienced teacher of both German and English as a Foreign Language. I have a Master's of Education, a BA (Hons) in German, a PGCE and an RSA Diploma in TEFL. Having lived and worked in Germany for over seven years, I also have near-native competence in German.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching German and EFL for more than 30 years from beginners to advanced level. I used to teach German to GCSE and A level at what used to be Plymouth College of Further Education as well as EFL from Cambridge KET to Cambridge Proficiency. In addition to that I have prepared many students for the IELTS exam and I have taught Business English and English for Academic Purposes too. I have worked in the UK, Germany, Spain and the United Arab Republic.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is essential to establish the needs of each individual student so that a tailor-made course can be designed for that particular student. That does not mean that my approach is inflexible, however - if one approach to teaching does not suit the individual learning needs of the student, I will endeavour to teach the student in a way that they are happy with and which will lead to the best possible results.
As a teacher of foreign languages I very much favour the communicative approach but I am also more than willing to teach grammar as this also plays an important role in language learning. As languages are meant for speaking I place a great deal of importance on oral work - particularly at GCSE and A level - but once again, the needs of each individual learner are paramount. For oral conversation, I am happy to teach using SKYPE.

View Thomas's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am an undergraduate at the University of Oxford (Exeter college) reading for a BA in Music, and attended the Liverpool Blue Coat School for seven years. I achieved my Advanced level qualifications in 2016 with A* in Music (the first grade of that category in the subject for my school), A* in Maths and A in Chemistry, and I was a member of my school's orchestra, choir, and took part in many other extra curricular musical activities. I am a choral scholar at Exeter college, Oxford, regularly play in orchestras at university and home, and composition is a particular area of interest for me within my degree. I enjoy engaging in philosophical debates and discussing ideas and how they change through history.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped out at my school's open days in the chemistry music and maths departments where I have explained how teaching works, but also taught students myself to help show the type of topics covered. In day to day school I also often end up explaining things in these subjects to enhance people's understanding. I was also a part of Resonate Music Hub and led the youth orchestra there, which entailed peer guidance and for a while I helped out in the younger groups helping to tutor the children on string instruments. In previous years I have tutored children 1 on 1 for the Blue Coat entrance exam, and also have experience working with less able children, and those who need a little more guidance in many subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one of the best ways to learn and understand important concepts and facts is for the student to lead the reasoning with guidance from the tutor. I will use this approach to ensure that the student fully understands what is being taught but also I am aware that many things require a different approach, involving slower step by step teaching method. I will also cater for students who want to know more about the subject, and I believe my very current A level and degree knowledge can provide information where questions are asked, which I very much encourage. In terms of tutoring for the entrance exam I believe the best way to prepare is to go through practice questions and explain how they work and how to best gain marks. My degree has shaped my writing style so that I can assist students with their essay writing and how to succinctly shape arguments.

Personal Description:
Enthusiastic with a restless intelligence, thirsty for knowledge, always keen to discover more, I am continually fascinated by the interplay between culture and society. I have expert knowledge in English and American Literature, the history of cinema, and the development of western philosophy. I resigned from my post as head of department at a large comprehensive school so that I would have more time to write my book comparing the films of Preminger and Hitchcock. Freed from the administrative demands of a school, I have even more energy and creativity to devote to teaching, and will have a powerfully positive impact on whoever I tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have over thirty years' experience in a wide variety of educational contexts: at universities in Britain and abroad, in comprehensive schools, FE colleges, language schools and professional training. I have worked as a A Level examiner and moderator for over ten years, so understand exactly what students need to do to impress markers, and can advise on how to avoid mediocrity. I have been tutoring online for two years, and find that the level of concentration in a Skype session is usually higher than in person: the start is crisper, the learning more focused.

Tutoring Approach:

Fun, exciting, inspiring. I love the stimulating variety of one-to-one tuition. Over the years, I have adapted my plans, materials and methods to meet the specific needs, aims and expectations of an extremely wide variety of learners in terms of ability, personality and specialisation. At one end of the scale, I trained Swedish officers in media relations ahead of their deployment with the UN in Bosna, and spent eight weeks one-to-one with the head of personnel of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, improving his presentation skills. At the other end of the scale, I had notable success tutoring a teenager with emotional and behavioural difficulties who had been permanently excluded from school for violence, and was in local authority care. Working with him individually for three hours a day, concentrating on English, Maths and History, I had a very positive and potentially transformative impact. At every point in scale, I treat individuals with respect and dedication, determined to help them achieve their potential.

Hi everybody!!

My name is Laura and I am a Spanish native speaker. I was born in Castilla y León, where the most neutral accent is spoken.
Now I live in Manchester since 6 months ago, working as a Spanish teacher in one-on-one private lessons. I lived other 6 months in London a few years ago.

As you can see I have a wide qualified background as a student, combining it with teaching different subjects from school and Spanish to adults, which I really enjoy a lot!! I know what the students need and want in this process.

Do not hesitate in contact me. Try the free first lesson!!

Looking forward to meet you.

Laura

Teaching Experience:

I have being teaching for 5 years with very good results.
I adapt the lessons to the preferences and neccesities of the students.

Tutoring Approach:

In my lessons I always use the new technologies, books and online materials to improve quickly your learning in the best and enjoyable way. Spanish is a great language and why not having fun while you study it?! The lessons are always flexible, personalized and focused on your needs, skills and areas of interest. You will always choose if you want to learn more grammar, writing, listening, speaking...etc.

Whatever are your objectives, I will try you to speak as much as possible and I will correct your mistakes. Two of the main points when a language is being studied.

Personal Description:
2008 National Teaching Award Winner (Southern Region.)
Volunteer linesman every Sunday - for my 3 sons' football teams.
Keen cyclist - I've cycled further than the distance around the equator as I commuted to and from school.
Animal lover - I enjoy jogging with Scout, my rescue dog.
Educational author - I wrote a maths assessment book that was sold in WHSmith.
Piano player - I accompany a large choir that performs in both the Guildhall and the Cathedral in Portsmouth.
Prioritiser - In 2010 I decided to reduce my hours so that I could spend more time with my wife!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a classroom teacher for 23 years in 3 different schools; I was head hunted for the last job and when I left it in November 2016, it was graded outstanding by OFSTED. I have predominantly worked in year 6 where I have helped to raise standards of attainment - I have been successful in accelerating progress for many pupils (particularly in maths) to double Government expectations.

I have spent most of my career as a maths manager in schools but I have also led English and science. I have been a key stage leader for over 10 years and have mentored trainee teachers who have gone on to have their own successful teaching careers.
Winning the 2008 Award for Best Primary School Teacher in the South was an amazing experience. The judges interviewed pupils, staff and parents - families who weren't able to attend the meeting were able to submit letters of support and the highlight of the whole process was getting to read these testimonials afterwards.

Tutoring Approach:

Every pupil is different: each pupil has their own particular knowledge of facts, procedures and concepts, but they are also unique in their attitude, experience, confidence and motivation. Finding a tutoring approach that best suits each child is very important and, where appropriate, I make use of the recent educational principles of 'Growth Mindset' which challenge the notion that some people are just born clever, and encourages pupils to value risk taking, criticism and effort.

Individual tuition allows time so rarely afforded in whole class lessons to track back and identify the misconceptions that can sometimes be the underlying cause of slow progress or issues with confidence. The focus of good teaching is about building all new learning onto secure foundations and making strong and varied connections between concepts.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced journalist and academic tutor. I have spent hundreds of hours of teaching in classes and I have an outstanding ability to make even the most complicated concept understandable, due to my professional experience in the Media . I am proficient in producing various types of texts, from academic essays to fiction and blog content and I have tons of experience in producing them, both in Greek and in English.

Academically, I have two masters degrees from two of the most prestigious institutions in the U.K. The fields of my studies are Politics (specifically, political theory and constitutional design) and EU Politics. I graduated both M.Sc.s with distinction and particularly, my dissertations were examples of academic research of the highest standards and quality.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience in teaching, acquired during my academic career but also during the early stages of my professional career, when I used to work as a teaching assistant of various subjects, including English as a foreign language in Greece, Politics and EU Politics. I have worked with students of s undergraduate and graduate level, but also adult professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I see teaching and especially tutoring as a means of communicating something that is known and familiar to me, to another person. In order to be clear and concise, I try to asses what the individual knows about the issue that we are about to talk about and then I try give my teaching a structure of sections and subsections, in which I try to cover as much information as possible in the minimum possible time.

My experience in journalism has taught me that I have to start from the bare minimum, the essentials of the concept I am about to explain and then build up by adding extra information, giving examples, making historical comparisons and giving the context. Simultaneously, I am trying to asses whether my listener has understood and is at ease with what I have already covered.
