Personal Description:
As a qualified and professional Mandarin teacher, I teach Chinese in a professional and innovative way so learning Chinese is FUN, FAST and FRUITFUL!!!

I always strive for fostering an open, fun, interactive, stimulating and supportive learning environment in which each student feels intrigued, focused, challenged, motivated and satisfied. As a result, the students will be able to achieve their learning objectives in the shortest time possible!

Here are my service offers provided for face to face & on-line tuition -

24/7 support, advice and guidance!
Design a tailor-made strategic teaching plan for each individual to optimise learning outcome!

Teaching Experience:

I used to work as University lecturer in English as a second language in China and was awarded Excellent Teacher. I have been tutoring English speakers in Mandarin Chinese since moving to the UK. Having been a Mandarin tutor and lecturer in English makes me a versatile teacher. I have taken the opportunity to instruct a wide variety of students from different backgrounds and with varied learning purposes. As a result of 10 years' language teaching, I am able to utilise my extensive teaching skills, experience and knowledge to implement comprehensive and systematic teaching approaches to fully support students' needs, design effective teaching strategies, curriculum and learning materials, make accurate assessment, offer positive advice and ensure students to stay fully motivated and interested.

I teach a wide range of levels from the beginners to the advanced either for academic, business purposes or personal interests -

Academic Mandarin (GCSE, A Level and HSK)
Universal Mandarin
Business Mandarin
Mandarin for Kids
Tourism Mandarin
Survival Mandarin
Speaking and listening in Mandarin

I compile tailor-made learning materials along with using Chinese text books, such as -

New Practical Chinese Reader (1-4) (Beijing Language and Culture University Press)
Learn Chinese with Me (1-4) (People's Education Press)
Easy Chinese (Beijing University Press)
Easy Peasy Chinese (Mandarin Chinese for beginners)
Edexcel GCSE Chinese
Edexcel Chinese for AS
Edexcel Chinese for A2
Business Chinese for Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced (Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press)
Winning in China- Business Chinese (Beijing Language and Culture University Press)
New Century Business Chinese Series- Listening (Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press)
Talk - Mandarin Chinese (BBC Active; The ideal course for absolute beginners)
15 Minute Mandarin Chinese (Learn in just 12 weeks)

Learners' favourite text books can be used as advised.

Tutoring Approach:

One of the most effective ways I assist my students is by developing and presenting thorough and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate all learning styles. I research, locate and incorporate a variety of resources to accommodate students' needs and I integrate literature, workshop, classroom activities and technology to ensure the students are able to comprehend and retain the concepts of the target language.

Also working as a teacher in both Mandarin Chinese and English has given me a deep insight into different aspects between the two languages in the features of pronunciation, vocabulary, sentence structure and grammar, etc. so that it allows me to explain explicitly similarities and differences of the mother tongue and target language to the English-speaking learners for the purpose of enhancing their learning efficiency.

Personal Description:
I am a very positive individual that likes to carry out tasks efficiently. I feel that I am a motivator that can relate to a diverse range of people from my experiences from travelling and working in a variety of environments also I have worked with children from different backgrounds and educational levels and with my specific tailored programme of study I can help your child excel beyond your expectations.

Teaching Experience:

I have relevant experience with GCSE and A-level students from one to one tutoring to small group teaching of up to 4. I also have taught English previously when travelling in Asia.

Tutoring Approach:

From my years of experience of tutoring I find that confidence is vital towards success, which I instill in all my tutees.

My style of tutoring is very interactive with visual aids and diagrams with clear concise logical explanations of concepts and theories of the topics to be taught.

My strategy involves building a solid foundation in topics with a step-by-step approach where the basics are covered to ensure that at advanced stages, the tutee can excel.

If the tutee is unclear with a certain problem, breakdown of the problem into individual steps and working though each step with the tutee until the answer is derived to ensure clear understanding in approaching and conquering problems.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name's Ed. I read Classics at Cambridge before going on to train at the Bristol Old Vic. I'm now working as a professional actor in London.

I tutor in English, and all areas of Latin and Ancient Greek. If it's of interest, I particularly specialized in my finals papers on Homer, Virgil, Horace, and the evolution of tragedy.

Though I read Classics, a large chunk of my finals actually ended up being part of the English course - specifically tracing the origins of tragedy through to the present day. As an actor, too, I'm continually having to familiarize myself with new areas of literature, be it poetry, drama, or prose, with the advantage, I hope, of an extremely practical approach.

Teaching Experience:

Overall, I've found it best to keep a balance between tutoring English and Classics. I like to be teaching a range of things.

When moving to Bristol I was lucky enough to be offered a part-time teaching post with the Classics department at Clifton College. Over the two years I primarily taught A level language work in Greek and Latin, as well as coaching their prospective candidates for Oxford and Cambridge.

I've also done a lot of free-lancing in all sorts of areas for both English and Classics, tutoring Oxbridge applicants as well as students at both school and university level.

The work I've done with my tutees has varied widely. In Latin and Greek, I've assisted some specifically in translating set texts both at school and university level (I'm now very familiar with the OCR Latin syllabus); I've introduced others, who wished to explore beyond their prescribed syllabus, to new areas of literature; and with others I've worked on more wide-ranging ways to deepen literary analysis or approach translation.

I should probably add that my language work with school students has almost exclusively involved tackling the inadequacies of the confounded Cambridge Latin Course! This seems to be taught in virtually every school but seemingly never elects to teach grammar, which I find utterly bizarre. If you're a victim of this clueless course I'm more than happy to help!

In terms of English tuition, I've been fortunate enough to have a similarly broad range of tutees, at GCSE, A level, and university standard, though a high proportion have been Oxbridge candidates.

Some references from previous tutees below:

Naomi, A Level Latin and Greek (2013)

Ed,

Sorry it's so early but I just thought I'd let you know I got my Cambridge grades! Thank you so much for everything once again!

Neirin, Latin GCSE (2013)

Hello Ed. We are so delighted with Neirin's results, absolutely fabulous. And who would have thought - an A star in Latin! Thank you for all your effort and encouragement. He couldn't have done it without you. Enjoy the rest of the summer and good luck with the writing.

Katie, Oxbridge Ancient Greek (2013)

Ed's work with Katie has been completely outstanding. I think we were asking for something quite demanding, a combination of literature and language, with inspiration to boot, and he delivered it superbly. Katie was super-enthused by his approach. I think they both thoroughly enjoyed the classes (indeed from the sound of it I would have enjoyed them myself!) Ed has a combination of intellect, passion and (as far as I can judge) a real feel for the texts!

Zac, Scholarship Latin (2014)

Ed has been tutoring our 11 year old for Latin scholarship papers. In 5 sessions he has taken him to a new level and has totally inspired him! We can't recommend him highly enough!...

Thanks for the email ... got an A* in Philosophy and A's in Latin and English.

Thank you very much for all your help, couldn't have got the A without your tutoring.

Hope all goes well for you at theatre school and you're enjoying the summer.

Best wishes,

Sophie.


You're also welcome to get in touch with the Head of Classics at Clifton College, Mr Huntington, who employed me at the school between 2009 and 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it's impossible to pin down a sure-fire method of effective tutoring for any given person. People are different, and different methods work with different people.

That said, I am a firm believer that you cannot simply speak at someone. Learning has to be an active process, and I think there has to be involvement from both sides for things to sink in. In this light, I do try to make things enjoyable, and also to limit shortcuts; I'm of the view that it's far better to invest the time in getting firmly to grips with a subject, be it an instance of grammar or literary concept. In the long run that is a shortcut in itself.

Personal Description:
I'm twenty two and have lived, worked and studied in the south Hampshire area my whole life. I love the area and intend on staying here for the foreseeable future! I'm currently studying Graduate Entry Medicine at the University of Southampton, having completed my BSc. (Hons) Human Physiology at the University of Portsmouth in 2015. I attended Hamble Community Sports College, achieving 14 GCSEs at grade A and A* - top of my year - and Peter Symonds College, studying Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Critical Thinking and General Studies. My Mathematics and Statistics GCSE (taken a year early) were the highest the school had ever achieved, both gaining an A* (99.5% and 100% respectively).

Teaching Experience:

During my GCSE preparation period, and during the exam time also, I tutored several students in my year and below for Mathematics and Statistics, alongside their current teaching at school. I have also, however, given tuition to other adults, most of whom were taking their Mathematics GCSE as an extra qualification in order to get a promotion at work. I would be very willing to do any type of Key Stage 2, 3 or GCSE Mathematics or Statistics teaching for a person of any age.
I have now taught many students, ranging from ages 5 - adult, and all of those which have sat exams have at least achieved the grades they were after. I have helped students to reach required grades, supplementing class teaching, catching up on missed lessons, improving old Maths skills and more recently as a standalone teacher of the entire GCSE syllabus. I have also helped individuals gain much needed confidence in their own skills and I have a lot of experience in helping students to believe in themselves!

Tutoring Approach:

Mathematics being a specific passion of mine, I encourage students to apply their own knowledge to the question, before adding any new information. By showing proof of how a calculation or question works, I believe that anyone can grasp a method if they are shown the reason behind its usage. I believe I can offer an alternative to the class driven method of teaching, and allow students to gain aptitude in spotting the need for a calculation just by reading the question, and hopefully then on to creating their own calculations and solutions! I also aim to make a heavy question of 5 or 6 marks appear to be just a group of smaller questions, making each mark easier to get. I've been teaching for four years now and I've seen many students suffer from a lack of confidence in their own ability, and I always ensure that not only does the person have core, and advanced knowledge, but that they have confidence in the fact that anything can be achieved!

I also run a summer school program to allow high school students the opportunity to gain extra credits for University entry.

At present I am employed as a Chemistry Lecturer at a local University.

It is completely up to the student's requirement. If help with schoolwork is required, I shall aid them appropriately, making sure they have a thorough understanding of all the concepts they use. On the other hand, I can also teach the syllabus alongside their school - I have a style which allows students to grasp the concepts with more ease than they may be able to at their school.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, calm and patient teacher with a variety of experience that I am able to bring into my classroom by day, and in tutoring outside of school hours. I have worked with students from primary to university level, as well as tutored adult ESL students during my time living abroad.

As a secondary school teacher, I have high expectations of my students and like to push them to their full potential and keen to inspire confidence and faith in their ability. I thoroughly enjoy working with students one to one when I am able to personally tailor teaching to the learner's level at a pace that suits them. I currently work in a successful 'outstanding' school, therefore, I have a very strong English department where I am able to gain resources and skills I can bring to my tutees.

I am passionate about inspiring confidence and belief, and love exploring my subject with others; opening their minds to alternative approaches and guiding the way. I use a lot of humour in my lessons and like to create a calm, relaxed and enjoyable environment and get to know my students as individuals. Having spent much time with a personal tutor at GCSE to overcome my fear of Mathematics as a teenager, I have a personal understanding of the empathy and patience required by a tutor, as well as a passion to enable my tutees to reach their goals and develop confidence in themselves.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating from Roehampton University with a 2:1 in English Literature and Theatre Studies, I went on to work as a Teaching Assistant in SEN working with students with a range of needs, but focused on teaching students with Dyslexia/Dyspraxia, which then became my research focus for one of my assignments during my PGCE teacher training.

I have since taught in a wide range of schools; I left Britain to work abroad in an IB international boarding school, PTIS Chiang Mai, as a Boarding Houseparent and ESL/SEN teacher, as well as tutoring seniors completing their final IB projects. In the evenings, my responsibilities included tutoring boarders aged 9 - 19 for all subjects. After my one year internship, I taught in a British international school for two years, Varee International Chiang Mai, where I taught KS3/4 IGCSE English and SEN and was lead assessor for entrance tests for ESLstudents. I also tutored adult Thai learners English outside of my school hours as part of a language exchange to help me to develop my Thai.

Since returning to the UK, I have taught KS3/4 History and Geography, and now KS3 - KS4 English in an outstanding secondary academy in West London.
I am a flexible teacher in terms of subjects covered, but English/literature, grammar, ESL and study skills are my core areas.

Tutoring Approach:

When I first meet a new student, I conduct an initial assessment to be able to adapt my lessons to the individual needs of the student.
I have very high expectations of my students, so push when they feel like 'giving up', but practise compassion when they need support and encouragement. With confidence and patience, they can find a way.
I may on occasion set small homework tasks (if the student does not have too much with their school already) to continue learning between sessions. I will often ask a student to e-mail this to me before our next session so I can give feedback and work on mistakes for our next session, thus maximising learning in our short sessions.
I have a fun approach to my teaching as this is vital to engage young learners, as well as for my own enjoyment of sharing my passion for my subject.

Personal Description:
I'm a 24 Canadian teacher, now in my second year teaching in London. In addition to teaching, I take part in screenwriting, filmmaking, and online blogging.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently in my second year teaching in England. I have full grasp of the new English GCSE curriculum for both Language and Literature. I teach Years 7-11, to students of all abilities (including EAL and Gifted & Talented students). I am also a GCSE Media Studied teacher, with additional knowledge in Film Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I bring to every tutoring session the same levels of passion and enthusiasm that I exhibit on a daily basis in my classroom. I believe in hands-on learning, with understanding and appreciation of the material studied taking prominence to worrying about a grade or a level. I strongly believe that any student can excel, no matter their background or language, and that with passion and handwork, the desired grade is more than possible.

Personal Description:
An experienced,hard working, enthusiastic, caring and loving educator, who always seeks to develop professionally and who sets the development of the social skills and effective education of children aged between 2 - 9 years old as her top priority.

Vasiliki has successfully worked for 7 years in one of Cyprus's best English Nursery Schools. During the same period she has also worked with students on one on one basis receiving excellent references in the process.

After acquiring and perfecting her skills in Cyprus, she is now looking for fresh & exciting challenges in Manchester, UK.

Teaching Experience:

September 2016 - Today

Greek language teacher at the Hellenic School of Manchester

September 2009 - July 2016

Nursery school teacher at Romanos English Nursery School in Nicosia, Cyprus. Amongst others, my responsibilities included:

Educational support for children in Preschool and Primary Education
Preparation and organization of weekly programming based on the different needs and abilities of the children of the preschool class. This programme was then sent to the parents to keep them informed on the weekly activities.
Application of multiple specific activities based on the nursery's timetable in the context of the programme issued by the Ministry of Education (e.g. silent activities as well as multiple subject activities such as language education, mathematics and natural sciences). Through these activities the learning and development of children is documented in different ways such as evaluation forms, contact book and progress meetings with the parents.
When needed, extra activities were carried out in smaller groups of children (micro-level).
Leading role in enhancing children's Greek language knowledge. Amongst others, created additional learning material to aid towards the Greek alphabet learning
Leading role in the creation of the School's Yearbook which included photos from all activities, school trips and experiences the children had.
Finally, over the last three years actively contributed to the structure and organization of the School's graduation ceremony by helping in poems writing and dance teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

Vasiliki follows a structured and well though teaching approach always tailored to the student's needs. She carefully monitors the student's progress and adjusts the teaching & homework given to help the student learn and develop his/her speaking and writing skills.

Personal Description:
I am a 19 year old prospective medical student on a gap year, thus I have a lot of spare time on my hands and would like the opportunity to improve a person's learning through a fun and interactive environment.

I am available in the weekday from anytime in the mid afternoon to evening and am also more than willing to provide support through texts. I can travel up to 10 miles.

Thanks for viewing my profile and I hope to hear from you soon! :)

Teaching Experience:

Over the years I have helped my classmates in my own spare time with hard to understand scientific and linguistic concepts and aspire to pass this on to even more students. I have also helped to teach younger students to read and explain concepts to them.

I have achieved 9 A*/A grades at GCSE and A*AA at A level in Chemistry, Biology and Spanish retrospectively. I achieved these grades through sheer hard work and being motivated by my teachers.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a positive learning environment is so important in order to be able to achieve a student's full potential. I have loads of resources which were so useful for me throughout my academic years and would love to share these with tutees to help them achieve their full potential.
