Personal Description:
I am a native Russian speaker. I have pursued a full time career as a language tutor for over 15 years, teaching students from 3 to 70. I graduated in Moscow as a teacher of chemistry and biology for secondary schools. I worked for a period of two years in a school in Moscow. I came to the UK and started working for a Russian oil company in London involved in translations. In addition I worked as required as a Russian translator for the Bank of England. In 1998 I co-wrote a book called "Talk Russian" for the BBC which was used in support of a Russian language programme that they were presenting.

Teaching Experience:

I commenced working in the education sector in the UK in 1998.I was engaged as a preparatory school teacher in an independent school, where I continued to work until 2004 and was tutoring in my free time.
I became a full time Russian language tutor in August 2004 for students of all ages, children, teens, adults who need extra support and business professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor each lesson to suit the student's needs. On the first lesson I identify areas for improvement and prepare an adapted teaching schedule to provide the maximum support for learning. My continuing approach depends on the type and needs of the student that I am tutoring. I have a total open mind, when I first meet them. The method of study will vary considerably .I make sure that the students enjoy the lessons and understand each step before progressing to the next one.
For very young students I use lots of games and activities to engage them and stimulate their mind, praising them with their progress.
I also tutor young people for their GCSE, A level, IB examinations, and undergraduates. I focus on improving their confidence and question answering technique in addition to providing them with a deeper understanding of conversational skills, grammar and comprehension of each topic. Closer to their exams, I concentrate on improving question techniques and creating links across the curriculum. I can also offer tuition of intensive exam preparation. My objective is to obtain the best results from each student.
For the business professionals, they generally need to improve their conversational skills, which I feature for them, but also include elements of grammar and spelling, to ensure a total understanding. It is important to help them find the way to learn.
I have access to several resources including Skype, where I utilise as support "Scribblar" and "Blackboard Collaborate" along with many other white board conference and collaboration tools, and use them accordingly.
I am a patient tutor and try to build trust with my students, which lead to fast progress, this being the top priority. It is a pleasure to pass on my knowledge to all of my students, and for me this is one of the most rewarding experiences ever.
I would really like to meet you and wish you the best for your Russian language studies. Please don't hesitate to contact me.

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:
Hey there. I'm Danny, and I'm a fifth year medical student at Imperial College London, but my interests aren't solely limited to medicine! I love learning new languages, travelling to new places, and am committed to furthering the education of the next generation.
Outside of medicine I love cycling and running; having previously completed several half marathons and a marathon, I'm working my way up to a triathlon. I'm also an active member of my local chess club, which I thoroughly enjoy. Music is also a large part of my life - I've played guitar for 8 years and am currently teaching myself classical guitar.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring officially for four years now, but also unofficially tutored my sister and other students for GCSE/AS Level previous to this. My experiences includes tutoring students in the areas of Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and German, and experience from the past few years has allowed me formulate my preferred method of tutoring and find out what works best for the student in question.
I now attend conferences aimed at helping younger students get into medical school, which includes conducting mock interviews, helping students with their personal statements and tutoring them.
I've previously been a Medic Dad, which mentoring a medical student in the first year and being an unofficial port of call if they need help with academic matters or otherwise. Finally, last year I was an OSCE tutor, mentoring medical students in the year below me in order to help them pass their practical exams.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing to me is that any tutee of mine understands the fundamental concepts of what they're learning, rather than simply rote learning, as much more is achieved this way. It's also important that I help encourage any tutee to enjoy what they doing. I like to approach topics with a comfortable attitude whilst still maintaining a firm schedule of work. I hope that my being a student will allow an informal atmosphere between myself and any tutee, and that we can build a good relationship during out tutoring time while still concentrating on the important goals together.

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be a very laid back and creative individual. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and consider photography to be not only a great art form but also a skill that so many people should be able to understand and enjoy! I have now been a full time photographer for over 10 years. My work has for the last 8 years been based in the U.K with one of the largest most prestigious studio portrait companies in the U.K, H.K,and America.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last 5 years I have tutored and mentored many new photographers of differing ages and skill sets. Some with no hands on experience at all, some with a firm grasp of the technical aspects of the camera who wanted to further themselves through lighting and post production digital techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take a friendly and enthusiastic approach to the questions and challenges that face new photographers young and old alike. Simplifying and finding real world associations on how the camera,lens and light work together with a creative mind.

Hi, my names Tom and I am a history graduate from the University of York,
I have loved history all of my life and I really want to pass that on to other people, which is why I would love to be a tutor,
I am really comfortable tutoring history, having attained an A* at GCSE, an A at A Level and a 2:1 BA degree at the University of York and I know that I am able enough to do a very good job,

I have a CRB Check available, which was completed before working at the aforementioned school in York.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Spanish voluntarily at Tang Hall Primary School, York as part of the University of York's Project Babylon,
Besides that I am quite inexperienced, but I am confident that I would be a good tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would try to make the tutoring as interesting as possible by incorporating a range of activities as well as using the subject's textbooks and relevant materials,
In particular, I believe that flash cards work really well, therefore I would create flashcards with the student, before revising using them.

I have then spent the following 5 years at the University of Aberdeen Studying a range of biology and chemistry courses. I also have a current PVG disclosure Scotland certificate available upon request.

Teaching Experience:

During the final year of my undergraduate degree (2013-2014) I enrolled on the BP tutoring scheme which firstly entailed a short teacher training course before I was assigned a placement at Turriff Academy, Aberdeenshire. With the support of the classroom teacher, I was involved in the designing, delivery and evaluation of teaching materials for classes ranging from S1 to S6 in subjects such as general science, biology and chemistry. This experience greatly improved my communication skills as well as enhanced my ability to think on my feet as many of the classes I instructed were allocated to me at short notice with little time to prepare.

I love my job and feel that my enthusiasm stimulates and encourages my students to excel.

Teaching Experience:

Having gained my PGCE I taught for 9 years in medium-sized village school in a picturesque part of Derbyshire. I very much enjoyed my time there and gained some invaluable experience. I then took up a middle-management post at a suburban school in Doncaster. This was a different experience which enabled me to work with children of many different abilities allowing me develop efficient and successful teaching strategies.
I have a wide range of experience in teaching children from year one to year six. Over the last two years I have done supply work in numerous schools in South Yorkshire allowing me to remain up to date with current trends in teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a friendly, encouraging approach to tuition. I aim to put children at their ease, developing confidence, but like to cover as much ground as possible in the time we have. I ensure students (and their parents) receive clear feedback alongside targets for future development and set additional work to complete between lessons where appropriate. I have a flexible approach to tutoring based on the requirements of the student/parent. Lessons focus on building confidence, consolidating and developing concepts or focusing on specific areas requiring support.
Children learn in different ways and I always endeavour to teach in a manner that complements the student's preferred learning style. I monitor progress using formal and informal methods of assessment and encourage children to use self assessment.
Students can learn by either visiting my home, me visiting them or at a distance using Skype.

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm a fully qualified, Cambridge educated teacher, specialising in English, History, Psychology & Politics. I am a trained English & History teacher & my degree background in Social & Political Sciences enables me to tutor in Politics & Psychology, alongside my classroom teaching and tutoring experience in these areas. I pride myself on being a fully-qualified teacher who is passionate about learning, transferring my skills and sharing my passion and love for my subjects with others. It is not everyone who is simply good at a subject or who has an impressive qualification in that discipline, who can actually teach it. Teaching itself is an art and a skill and I am proud to be able to use my personal success, pedagogical training and ability to support and inspire students.

I enjoy what I do and I love inspiring and encouraging my students to perform well and to maximise their potential. I have a high success rate and strong track record with my students & I currently teach up to A-level.

My own academic background includes A-level English (for which I obtained one of the top five marks across the country for my cohort of 2004), a 2:1 Bachelors degree from Cambridge University before completing my teacher training on the competitive 'Teach First' fast-track teacher training programme through which, I became a fully qualified English teacher.

I am now a full-time tutor whilst I establish my own business but in my most recent, long-term teaching role (3 1/2 years, full-time up to Dec 2016), I taught both English & history to GCSE level alongside 'Government & Politics' to A-level. I am also confident in the tutoring of Psychology, having studied Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) as part of my Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining an A grade at A-level, alongside private tuition success in this area.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, I look forward to working with you...! : )

Teaching Experience:

I have over six years' teaching experience as an English teacher, four years' experience teaching GCSE history & A-level Government & Politics and two years' experience tutoring A-level Psychology (which I studied as part of Social Science degree from Cambridge, obtaining a 2.1 and an A grade - full marks, at A-level).

I have taught, in full-time positions at high performing secondary schools across teaching English, history & politics full-time and serving as Head of Department in previous roles.

My previous experience also includes two-years of coordinating the whole-school's English & literacy programme for a secondary school in south London. This role included me ensuring that key facets and skills related to English, literacy and academic writing were embedded across the curriculum within each department, across the school (no easy feat!). I have also ran and coordinated English booster sessions for KS3 and GCSE retake students, helping struggling students at C/D borderline or lower achieve their English Language & Literature GCSE grades.

I have a strong track record of success with students, on average achieving 80 - 90% success rate with classes, with private tutoring students commonly improving by *at least* one grade or more. One of my proudest achievements was with a GCSE student who improved from an E grade to a B grade within seven months of tutoring and an A-level student, improving from a C grade at the end of AS to an A* by the end of A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to be rigorous and professional in my approach and fully believe that marking and assessment are key to success, so students must expect homework each session (for which parental support is essential) and I will spend time marking and giving detailed assessment feedback of student work, including marking tutorials with students so they can clearly see where and how they need to improve.

Whilst, I do have quite a driven approach, I am very personable and get a buzz out of making lessons fun, relevant and engaging with a focus on skills and application, as opposed to pure knowledge. I will often use reading materials and stimuli linked to the student's own personal interests, alongside any set texts needed for English literature, as teaching resources for my lessons so that students can build on their skills, whilst using material that motivates them. Furthermore, I apply this same approach to tutoring in history, politics and psychology, focusing on current affairs and contemporary developments in each subject to make the content interesting and relevant.

As a former literacy coordinator, I am also aware that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are some of the main hindrances to students' success across all subjects and year groups (adults included!), so I put GREAT emphasis on this in ALL my subjects.

On a whole, it is important to me to teach students not only to pass their exams but to actually help them develop the reading, writing, critical thinking and analysis skills that will help them for life. This is the goal I have for my students and for myself.
