Personal Description:
Hello,
I have just completed my PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at UEA. I also have an MA (Distinction) in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, and a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature. I gained straight Firsts in every module I studied. I also have a good Fine Art degree from Chelsea College of Art and Design. I have been a private tutor for twelve years, and have taught many children in that time.

I am currently tutoring in the North London area, including Tottenham and Enfield. I am also offering Creative Writing courses for children in the Sutton area during the school holidays.

I'm a 41 year old lady, and am an aunt, godmother and childminder to several children.

I would also like to offer the tutoring services of my colleague, who will also be working in the Tottenham area. His specialist area is history, that is, 15th century history onwards, with special knowledge of 17th, 19th and 20th century British history. He is fully able to provide support with GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate syllabuses, with a BA Hons and an MA in Political History.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at undergraduate level at university as well as writing skills in an academic skills centre. I have also taught SATs to thirteen year olds. I have a PTTLs degree level 4 qualification and taught on an Access Course to adult learners. For GCSE, I have a 75 per cent success rate of my students achieving As and A*s. My other students, whose first language may not be English, achieve Bs.

I have taught AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL syllabuses at GCSE and AQA at A-Level.

Please note that I do not teach any Eleven-Plus or verbal reasoning syllabuses and that I prefer to teach older children (13 plus)

Tutoring Approach:

I use creative writing exercises with my students to allow them to develop their writing skills, as well as their creativity and imagination. This approach has been very successful with my SATs pupils. I also use past exam papers, model essays, and devote time and attention to close reading of set texts at GCSE and A-Level. I have also recently branched out into giving art lessons and I helped out at an arts and crafts club at the local school.

I can also provide Skype lessons and find this has been successful with older and university level students.

I have a friendly, professional approach and find I develop a real rapport with my pupils, who find their results and confidence improving with my tutelage.

Personal Description:
I have been a journalist for 25 years and have a love of the English language. I have also written several books. I decided to start teaching English as a Foreign Language last year because I love English grammar and wanted a new challenge. Now I have the advantage of being a writer of English as well as a teacher which enables me to help people with both speaking and writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have qualified on the Trinity College, London, TESOL course at Universal Language Training in Woking. During the course we gave over six hours of teaching and subsequently I have been teaching on a one to one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to get the student to do most of the work, speaking and writing English, and thinking for themselves rather than all the prompting coming from me. I tailor the work to their needs, so if it is a business client we look a the situations they encounter in their work and using role play we practise English in the workplace.

Personal Description:
I have taught English and modern languages for many years.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Russian and French in secondary schools in UK (1995-1999), Russian and Serbo-Croat for the Ministry of Defence (1980-2006), Basic Skills English at Bedford Prison (2007-2008) and English as a foreign language in Kishinev (Moldova,1993), Odessa (2008) and Moscow (2008-2010). Between 2006 and 2011 I taught Russian at the University of Essex and University of East Anglia summer schools and am currently teaching English as a foreign language on skype and Russian.

Tutoring Approach:

I favour a relaxed, communicative approach to language learning reinforced by a thorough understanding of all structures used.

My method is easy, direct, creative and fast. I focus on conversation and grammar-( how to create sentences to be able to speak and write faster and correctly -oral, listening, comprehension and repetition).

Every language is logic and as babies, the mechanism is to repeat sentences to understand them and memorize them . We can start speaking quick and without mistakes, once we understand the structure of the sentence: -verb tenses, how to create sentences, vocabulary, in writing and speaking , oral, listening and repetition-, in a funny way so the students ,enjoy learning the language and at the same time they learn it faster.
I offer a professional teaching service with good results.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced tutor, based in central Ipswich and I can tutor in students' homes or my home. I really enjoy tutoring as I find that my students make excellent progress which is very rewarding for me, too. Where required, I can provide references from previous students.

Teaching Experience:

I have 25 years' teaching experience (EFL/ESL, German and French) across all levels in colleges, local schools and as a private tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

My greatest strength is my ability to tailor my lessons to match students' exact linguistic needs - whether that means focussing on grammar, speaking ability, exam preparation or a combination of any of these for those who are learning for work and/or leisure purposes.

Personal Description:
I am 28 years old and have just finished my fifth year of teaching. The first four of those years were in a successful Birmingham grammar school and have just completed my first year at one of Bath's top school. My own education was received at a mixed comprehensive school in Wiltshire, after which I attended the University of Birmingham where I studied mathematics. I have recently moved back to the area after eight years in Birmingham, living with my wife and 4 year old labrador. Amongst other interests, I am always looking to stretch myself and keep my interest in mathematics and education alive by reading literature (particularly by Marcus du Sautoy) and attending seminars by the Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and other such organisations linked with various universities.

Teaching Experience:

The majority of my teaching so far was at a school within the King Edward VI consortium in Birmingham, teaching boys in KS3 and KS4, the majority of whom have target grades of A/A*. Around 35% of my timetable has been teaching KS5, both years 12 and 13. I have taught C1-4, S1 and M1. I also have experience teaching a range of abilities, from SEN to A/A* students at two co-educational, OFSTED rated outstanding schools in Birmingham. I also have experience of tutoring trainee teachers preparing for their QTS tests and also those preparing for the King Edward's entrance exam. I have lead the development of ICT/Web based learning for my department and have mentored trainee teachers and NQTs. During my four years in Birmingham I was appointed Head of House and Head of Year 7. The house I took charge of had lost both the sporting and academic competitions every year for 10 years. After two years in charge, my house were the winners of the academic competion (consisting of 15 events) which I believe is testament to my ability for to motivate student. During my first year in Bath I have aided in the running of a successful department and have added experience of teaching further mathematics to year 13 students. The modules I taught were FP1 and S2 and I am due to teach M2 next year.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer that anyone, of any age and ability, can learn mathematics and learn it well. The key is finding a medium that relates to the student. I am willing to try a range of different teaching methods to ensure that all of my students understand the concepts and ideas that they are being taught. What I will always do is give a relavance and a meaning to whatever I am teaching. That way, I believe the learning is more engaging, more enjoyable and therefore will be of a higher quality. These beliefs, coupled with a laid back and likeable nature mean I create a positive relationship with all of my students, a relationship that is vital for good teaching.

I regularly use games to practice or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. Depending on the student, the lesson can be more structured or more relaxed but I always want to try and make them enjoyable! I felt that this approach got a great response from my private students in the past. At the end of the day, I want the student to be happy!

I am familiar with all the last books of Spanish, like ´´Mira 1,2,3´´, ´´Viva´´, or ´´Studio´´

Personal Description:
I'm a linguistic and enjoy languages. Speak English, German and French fluently and can do business in Japanese. I have lived in North America, Europe and Asia and enjoy understanding different cultures and languages.

In business I'm an independent consultant, trainer and facilitator, working mainly in the business world. I design and run learning workshops in collaborative decision-making and lean thinking for companies of different sizes. I also run cross-cultural simulations to help people experience and learn how to cope working with different cultures.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my early teaching experience started with 15 years' English teaching to mainly corporate clients in Japan. I consider myself a highly experienced, versatile and resourceful former Language Teacher (TEFL), Tutor and Coach with further background as Intercultural Consultant. I have extensive experience teaching English in Asia, with expertise in accelerated learning techniques (e.g. suggestopedia) and Peer-based learning through Self-Organising Learning Environments.

I have taught classes and individuals at various levels and for various purposes. I have also done a lot of business English and specialised English for professionals. While I have a great deal of experience working with groups, I have also worked in educational learning environments as business coach and corporate tutor working with individuals What is most important, however, is that it is not about teaching, but about the student learning; it is hence imperative to start from the perspective of what the learner actually needs and working from there. I pride myself in being able to design courses and tuition tailor-made to the specific needs of the learners.

I also have a lot of experience teaching other foreign languages, using similar approaches. In particular I have done a lot of work teaching GERMAN and FRENCH, and a little beginner JAPANESE, to adult learners, and of course as a linguist have worked with more academic learning of languages at GCSE level and above. When teaching German or French to adult learners my focus is on giving learners the basic language skills they need to able to get by in the respective country in an enjoyable way.

Tutoring Approach:

Unless I am teaching towards academic aims (e.g. GCSE support), I view language as something that is used to communicate with, it is something one does, we do not normally learn a foreign language just for the sake of passive knowledge. To me therefore it is far more important to use the language than just learn it. My approach to tutoring is thus quite action oriented, we do things with language, and just like children (who did not learn their native language from a book) language is always used in a context, so it's important to provide contextual clues when introducing new language.

I emphasize engagement and participation a lot, with a strong focus on real communication (rather than practiced simulation where possible). Very early on I introduce meta-language, which is language about language (e.g. could you repeat that?, What do you mean by....?, Why do I say ... and not ...?), because this the only kind of genuine communication that happens in a language class, and thus it is an opportunity to use real communication. But above all, language should be fun, learn by doing and lively, and my interactive approach always works towards that.
