Personal Description:
I graduated from Coventry University and speak fluent Mandarin and English.

I studied broadcasting while I was in China and I worked as a presenter part-time for a radio station, as such My Chinese pronunciation is very clear and standard. I also studied some Japanese, which gave me a grasp of learning and developing a new language.

I got first class in the National Standard Chinese Level Qualification which shows I have near perfect pronunciation. Pronunciation is very important in Chinese and thus it is vital that the person who is teaching you has good pronunciation or you will pick up their mistakes too.

Teaching Experience:

When I was in China, I tutored some primary school aged students English to earn extra income. This has given me a base in teaching languages and so I have a good understanding of the differences in the languages such as grammar, word composition, and the etiquette.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very much tailored to the students needs.
For short-time learners, I will focus on basic common expressions, useful tourists sayings and culture differences. For long-time learners I will work on everything from grammar to hand writing to allow the student to communicate naturally in in Chinese.

It brings a lot of interesting challenges and the idea of working with individuals to develop their natural skills is really what I look forward to when at work.

Tutoring Approach:

The methods I teach foreign languages are unique and tailored to an individual' s needs. All students are different and it is very important to find their strengths, focus on them and use them right to develop their learning abilities.
I always seriously and thoroughly prepare myself for each lesson, think over every minute of it, provide my students with useful and interesting material which covers the aspects of the language that my students want to focus on and at the same time, I ensure that the lessons are fun - which means they look forward to them! I use a lot of playing techniques, every aspect of learning the language is involved; Reading, Speaking, Listening and Writing.

Personal Description:
I have just graduated from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School where I completed a postgraduate study in professional acting. Before that I was at the University of Bristol where I received a BA in German (2.1). I am offering both German and English literature help because I am confident in teaching both language and literature analysis.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored a GCSE student through their German oral and written exams a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I also worked as a theatre in education intern during my year abroad in Germany where I regularly taught workshops based on theatre and text.

Tutoring Approach:

I am really passionate about getting students excited about languages and I believe that the key to success in GCSE and A-Level is confidence. As well as going through school work, coursework and exam preparation I like to ensure that I include a 10 minute conversation in German at every lesson so that the pupil builds confidence in their ability to use vocabulary and grammar correctly. For English Literature I will provide help with essays, literature analysis (especially poetry and Shakespeare) so that students feel confident and prepared for their exams. I will also encourage my students to expand their overall knowledge of literature by reading widely and talking about what they have read. Depending on the needs of the student, I might expect them to keep a literature journal as well.

  • GCSE or Standards (25 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (30 p.h.)

I am a Native Speaker and a Qualified, Experienced Spanish Teacher.

I teach Spanish to any level from Beginners onwards. Any ages.

I have extensive experience providing Exam Support for GCSE and A-Level on any Examination board. I use past exams and I combine this with building a solid grammar knowledge base that will allow the learners to express themselves in Spanish both in writing and speaking as well as understanding what is written or said. I give writing tasks to do as a homework and I mark them outside the lesson time to maximise the learning during lesson time.

I offer enjoyable lessons to all levels and I offer extensive out of lesson support providing my learners with activities to do in their free time and recordings of words for them to practice their pronunciation. I also give them links to web pages to further develop their knowledge of the language.

I also offer support for DELE exams and any other exam.
I also teach Business Spanish, Travel Spanish, Technical Spanish, conversational or any other bespoke Spanish teaching.

I adapt to the learner's preferred learning style and methods and I am very friendly and easy to follow.

Personal Description:
Hi, I am 19 and currently studying engineering at The University of Sheffield. My interests lie very much in academia, majorly, in mathematics and physics. However I also spend my spare time swimming, cycling, socialising and travelling. I have been described as being approachable, easy to talk to and 'good at explaining things'. I offer my first hour of tutoring free of charge.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for over a year now and I had 8 regular students last academic session whom all gave positive feedback after sitting their exams. I also have tutored GCSE and lower school pupils in the capacity of a teachers assistant in my spare hours during my time in 6th form (a level studies). In terms of A-level maths, I teach C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, M2, FP1, D1.

Tutoring Approach:

I very much believe that the best way to teach is through clear explanation and, where possible, an explanation of the root of things. For example, where particular formulas or ideas are derived from. I also believe every student is different and may require different methods of teaching, perhaps not available in the classroom. I feel am suited towards students who may feel they learn better if they are tutored by someone who is more of a peer than a teacher. I currently only tutor online, as this allows me to offer more time slots to students.

Personal Description:
I am a practicing artist and tutor specialising in Oil Painting and Drawing, as well as Watercolour, Pastels, Acrylics, Mixed Media, Collage and Printmaking.

My work involves mainly painting using oils and my interests lie in nature as subject matter, depicting natural form such as flora and fauna. My work also examines the relationship between people and nature and how we interact with the natural world surrounding us.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching adults in an informal setting for various learning providers including the Workers' Educational Association for 9 years. I also teach regular painting workshops based at my studio. Although I have experience in teaching a variety of crafts such as sewing, textiles and jewellery making my main area of expertise is Art, Drawing and Painting.
I have studied various painting techniques and hold regular workshops based on a variety of styles and approaches.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in creating a safe and welcoming learning environment for students in order to enable development of knowledge and skills in a relaxed manner. Much emphasis is placed on confidence building through gradual skill development and nuturing of individual artistic style and voice. I am a big believer in tailored learning and am happy to work closely with students in order to help with improvement of very specific skills.

I am a very practical and techniques based art tutor, therefore if you are looking for help with the improvement of drawing skills and how to achieve well composed finished paintings, I can help.

Personal Description:

Teaching Experience:

I am a painting and drawing specialist with over 10 years teaching experience. I have taught a wide range of students, from 6 year olds at primary level to a 90 year old student at a life drawing class for adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring to the needs of each individual student. Through my teaching I have developed exercises designed to strengthen observational and imaginative drawing and painting. I have a wide and deep knowledge of art history, from the art of indigenous peoples to contemporary art, and I draw upon this in my teaching. I aim to build my student's confidence with routine sketchbook work, clear technique instructions and balanced critique. My lessons are a balance of disciplined practice and fun.

Academic Background

A-levels in Maths (A plus S1), Further Maths (B), Physics (A plus S2), and Chemistry (B), taken in 1984.
MA in Computer Science with Mathematics from Cambridge University in 1987.
Qualified as a Chartered Accountant (with the ICAEW) in 1990.

Career Summary

I worked as an accountant for 30 years, culminating in a role as Chief Financial Officer of Ireland's largest insurance company. I have worked with UK and European regulators, and was responsible for managing a multi-billion pound investment portfolio. I worked as a freelance senior finance manager for two years, in the City of London.

Recently I decided to have a career change, and become a secondary school (GCSE and A-Level) teacher, in the Science Department, specialising in Physics. Before starting my teacher training in September 2017 I am spending a term working as a cover teacher, across all subjects and covering Year 7 (11-year olds) through Year 13 (18-year olds).

Personal Details

I live in rural Northamptonshire, and am very excited about my new career. I have a DBS (criminal records check) allowing me to work unsupervised with children. I enjoy travelling, cultural tourism and cooking. I am a non-smoker.

Teaching Experience:

While working as an accountant, I set up and ran the company's trainee accounting scheme and have always enjoyed teaching and coaching, from basic levels to delivering training for Boards of Directors.

I enjoy teaching and coaching my 14-year old daughter, and have some experience coaching primary school Maths (in preparation for Year 6 SATs). I felt called to teaching and have changed careers to enable this. I have recent experience teaching secondary school classes, but enjoy 1:1 coaching very much. I am easy to get on with and can establish good rapport with my students very quickly.

My formal teacher training starts in September 2017, but my life experience and subject matter knowledge make me well suited to the role of tutor. I am largely skewed towards numerical subjects, but am also fastidious in my use of English grammar and writing, due to having spent thirty years providing high quality reports to senior and junior colleagues.

Tutoring Approach:

I very much prefer to work using the syllabus and textbooks with which the student is already familiar, as it can be very confusing to be taught different approaches by a school and by a tutor. If textbooks are unavailable (many schools do not allow textbooks to be taken home), I can probably source them, but at the student/parent's expense.

My style is very engaging, and I seek to understand how my students view the subject, and work with them to fill in any gaps and increase student confidence. I don't like giving rote lessons, which I think are dry and little better than reading the textbook. I really enjoy bringing a subject alive by relating the topic to the real world, and by including interesting facts and information.

Tutoring has to work both for the tutor and the student, and I will always try to make the lessons fun and stimulating. If I don't think the student is benefitting from my tuition, I will discuss this at an early stage. It makes no sense to press on with continued lessons if my approach or the student response is unsatisfactory.

I don't think that every student can become A* grade in every subject, but tuition can increase confidence, improve performance, reduce anxiety, and give a student the best possible chance of fulfilling their potential.
