Personal Description:
I am a teacher of exceptional qualifications and experience, acquired in both Bulgaria and the UK. My 5-year MA degree (English Philology, comprising of English and American Studies, Applied Linguistics and Theory and Practice of Translation, Grade 2:1) has provided me with a thorough and solid theoretical basis in all aspects of English. It includes a teaching qualification up to Level 7/8, validated as a full UK QTS by the GTC for England. I have also completed a second degree (with 1st class Hon.) and obtained a Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults.

I am qualified and experienced to teach pupils from primary school to university (post-graduate) level as following:

- 11+ EXTRANCE EXAM FOR GRAMMAR AND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL EXAM PREPARATION - READING COMPREHENSION, MATHEMATICS, VERBAL REASONING AND NON-VERBAL REASONING, ESSAY COMPOSITION AND LITERARY TEXT ANALYSIS - FROM AGE 7+

- help with writing academic assignments (essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - foundation, undergraduates and post-graduates
- Bulgarian language - all levels
- Russian language - basic level

Teaching Experience:

I have been employed as a PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHER (ENGLISH), 11+ GRAMMAR SCHOOL EXAMS TUTOR AND ASSESSOR, MATHS TUTOR (PRIMARY SCHOOL, KS 1 AND 2), EAP, Business, IELTS, ESOL and English Language and Literature teacher and have worked at universities, colleges and schools across two countries. My experience teaching at four universities, and supporting children in schools and adults has helped me become an exceptionally versatile teacher.

I HAVE A VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING APPROACH, SHOWING UNDERSTANDING TO EACH STUDENT'S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND PREFERENCES AND TRY TO PERSONALISE LEARNING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. STUDENTS WARM TO ME QUICKLY AND ESTABLISH A GOOD RAPPORT FOR EFFECTIVE COOPERATION.

I have a proven record of tutoring students for a successful performance at the 11+ ENTRANCE EXAMINATION AND SUCCESSFUL ADMISSION AT GRAMMAR OR INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS.

All my primary school tutees have achieved their individual targets (whether improving basic literacy skills, or advancing in their level of reading or writing). The same success has been achieved in Mathematics.

My GCSE and A-level English pupils achieved 100% A-grades in their exams (both English Language and Literature).

I have tutored successfully for the Citizenship/Life in the UK test. I have the latest information of the test changes (from 2014). All my tutees have passed the Life in the UK test.

With university students I have expertise teaching the following academic skills:

• structuring academic essays, implementing skills of cohesion and coherence and using the appropriate subject-related style
• paraphrasing and summarising texts and applying correct grammar and suitable register in writing
• using quotations and in-text citations and referencing them accordingly
• delivering a presentation on a subject-specific topic, using Microsoft Powerpoint for effect
• demonstrating understanding of key concepts and inferring the meaning of unfamiliar words from the context
• developing speaking and seminar skills, useful for active participation in discussions and debates in the classroom and outside
• interpreting numerical, statistical and financial data orally and in writing
• demonstrating a clear understanding of what constitutes plagiarism and how to use the Harvard Referencing system for citation and the production of Reference Lists

At the academic skills pre-sessional courses at the University of Birmingham in 2012-2016 I gained even deeper experience supporting individual students with writing within very constrained time-limits. I guided all to success at their final assessments. I have had very positive feedback and comments of appreciation.

I have taught in various set-ups - whole class, pair work, group work, or one-to-one sessions. I am deeply interested in each student's individual learning needs and progress and one of my major strengths is differentiation. I sometimes prepare material at 4 levels of differentiation for a single class or small group. I use supportive strategies to boost students' confidence, at the same time challenging learners to achieve beyond their own expectations. I approach intense 1-to-1 sessions with the appropriate dynamics.

I am prepared to go beyond my 'job description' duties to help students with 'special needs'. I am interested in their individual circumstances and take them into account, where appropriate. I prepare resources to address their personal needs and interests. I review their progress and involve them in self-assessment towards autonomy of learning. I am familiar with the 'Assessment for Learning' policy and competent with implementing it widely.

I have worked successfully with students with dyslexia. At secondary school, one of my 'high-ability' dyslexic students scored an 'A' grade at her English GCSE, while another participated in a poetry competition. I have had success teaching students with autism and Asperger's as well.

I invest all of myself in my teaching. I am a highly trusted professional and have an exceptional rapport with my students. I am often quoted as a preferred tutor, who 'has the best way of explaining things' and 'is very patient, friendly and cheerful'. All students of mine - regardless whether at school, college or university - progressed by at least one level (even at short-term courses). A student with a debilitating illness on the BME, predicted to fail the course, not only passed it under my guidance, but achieved grades higher than his required level. In my 15-year teaching career I have never failed a student. I have achieved outstanding results at OFSTED observations. My latest annual lesson observation at BMETC was graded 'OUTSTANDING' and so was my performance at NAVITAS earlier this year. Another observation at BCU was unofficially deemed as 'the best on the course'. I have been invited to share exceptional ideas at training events and have also participated in numerous training activities at schools, colleges and universities. I often opt to peer-observe colleagues, to learn from their teaching styles.

Some more examples from my practice: a class of illiterate Yemeni housewives at BMETC, 2011, achieved a 100% pass at their ESOL exams, while 'advanced' international students at the BME, 2012 achieved some of the highest grades on the course. I have been successful dealing with pupils with behavioural problems at Harborne Hill School. Many reported an increasingly positive attitude to learning. I am a creative teacher and try to interest and enthuse students, so that they enjoy learning and celebrate their achievements.

Tutoring Approach:

First I negotiate the times and modes of tutoring with the parents of my potential pupil and agree on fees.
Then I organise a free initial meeting with the pupil and their parents, where I try to establish raport with the pupil. It is important, especially for children, to 'get a feel' of the new tutor and see if they can feel comfortable with her.
Then I try to access as much information as possible from the parents and the child about their progress at school and their attitude to school. If possible, I wish to see samples of the child's school work, or hear anything teachers have said/written about their progress.
During the first lesson I conduct an informal assessment of the pupil's skills - give them a piece of text to read, or free writing or short composition, or a selection of Maths problems to solve. When I get a clear picture of where my pupil stands with a certain skill, I create a short-term plan of work with them. I normally bring materials with me and do not ask parents to buy additional materials. If the parent wishes me to follow a certain self- help book, I am happy to oblige.
I update parents regularly of their child's progress - I try to do it after every lesson. I normally leave homework, designed to consolidate the material covered in the lesson, or develop their skills further. I wish parents to be involved as much as possible with helping or monitoring the completion of the homework.
I try to show my pupils as much respect as possible and affirm them as individuals. I acknowledge their birthdays, Christmas, or other family celebrations.
The parents can terminate the service at any time, with only one week notice.
I OFFER LESSONS VIA SKYPE AS WELL.

Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Julia, I am a qualified and experienced French native teacher. I have a passion for languages. I am fluent in arabic, and can speak Spanish and Italian as well. However, I do think one should only teach a language one masters which is why I only teach French. I am an enthusiastic, fun and reliable person.
I teach all ages, all levels and prepare students for a wide range of examinations such as GCSE, Baccalauréat, A-level, DELF and DALF. I teach children in a fun way and casual learners according to their needs and levels.

Having studied and worked in marketing and B to B in France before, I enjoy very much teaching Business Fench to professionals willing to have better jobs opportunities or just willing to be able to communicate with French companies, customers or colleagues. My experience also includes medical French for doctors/nurses. I travel to companies for the group classes. Please ask for price.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching at the university of Essex where I have been working for 5 years and in a secondary school. In the secondary school, I am in charge of Year 10. Year 11 and Y12 who are taking their GCSE and As level so I have an excellent experience with exams! I taught in secondary schools, in Harwich High-School and Thomas Gainsborough school in Sudbury.
Previously,I worked in a Primary school in South of France for 1 year with 5 to 11 years old children and I taught French in a private school near Colchester for 1 year where I used to teach children in a fun and creative way using role-plays, songs, art and crafts....

I have experience in teaching French to native/bilingual speakers as well so my method will be adapted to your profile

Tutoring Approach:

I think tutoring is particularly interesting and rewarding. My experience with all levels and nationalities is a real strength. I tailor the lessons to your needs, goal and level. We all have different ways of learning and what works for one can be of no help for someone else so I am always looking for the best way to succeed for each of my students. I like using games and fun activites when appropriate with children but also with adults! Learning a language is a challenge, that of course can be boring, but it can be very fun and rewarding as well. I do think everyone can learn a language!

Personal Description:
I am a Taiwanese who base in Edinburgh. Before I moved back to Scotland in 2014, I was a doctoral student at the University of Chicago in Greek and Latin. I have a BA degree in history from National Taiwan University (2006). After I spent a year studying Greek and Latin at Trinity College Dublin (2005-6), I gained a post-baccalaureate certificate in Greek and Latin from Columbia University in the City of New York (2008) and then a MPhil in Latin from the University of St. Andrews in 2011. Afterwards, I spent three years pursuing PhD research on Greek and Latin at the University of Chicago. At the present, I am photographing Edinburgh and Dublin and preparing my portfolio, exhibition, and photo books. I am very much enthusiastic about finding knowledge in both textual and visual worlds. Moreover, I am writing stories about Taiwanese diaspora for a journal in Taiwan. When it comes to Latin, I am currently reading Statius, Tibullus, and Seneca because I believe learning Latin is a life-long career that requires one's enthusiasm and dedication.

Teaching Experience:

I have been learning Latin for more than a decade, at National Taiwan University, Trinity College Dublin, Columbia University, the University of St. Andrews and the University of Chicago. I have TAed and taught Latin in Taiwan and the States. During this period, I have helped Cambridge University Press to translate Cambridge Latin Course series into Chinese Mandarin. During my stay in Chicago (2011-13), I also helped young people who have learning and reading difficulty.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:
Apart from solving the problems of your school work, we will do more exercise, such as unseen translation and English-Latin translation, to find out your weak and strong points. The exercise will help me prepare materials that will help you memorise syntax, vocabulary, and grammar. Grammar can be very boring and put down students' interest in Latin. However, learning through reading interesting, alien, and exotic stories will enhance students' motivation to look into the Roman Antiquity. Reading will also more effectively shed lights on the parts of grammar and syntax we need to make up. Moreover, I will show you how to master speech recognition tactics in order to develop a stronger reading comprehension. I believe in the end of this course, we will have a better understand of Latin as a language and Latin literature as a whole.




English
I have been learning English since I was fifteen. I have overcome many difficulties, such as taking language exams, living in foreign lands, and doing academic works. I will share those experience with you. This tutoring will focus on the various needs and interests of individual students. You may bring the materials that interest you. We also can look into big books, newspapers or stories covering your the stories of your country. We can also look into websites which offer wonderful resources for people whose first language is not English, such as BBC. By reading, listening and discussing together, I will help you find out your weak points and we will start from there.

MORE INFORMATION

I aim to make my lessons fun, challenging and interactive, so my students leave each lesson feeling that they have achieved something.

Lessons can be either 1-1 or groups, at my home or at the student's office / home.

If you are not able to do lessons face-to-face, I also offer online lessons via Skype.

My lesson prices are competitive and are given below:

£15 per hour (on Skype)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to ensure that each lesson is an enjoyable, creative and challenging experience for the student(s), and that different skills are practised. A wide variety of activities are used to ensure that the students remain engaged with and focused on the lesson aims. Where possible I let the students give me the language rather than 'feed' the language to them. The aim is always to give the students the space they need to learn, and to help them make the most of the learning opportunities presented in each lesson.

Here are some of the things my students have said:

1. Benoit
Date of feedback: 26 October 2014
Company: ArcelorMittal
"Hi Mark. First of all, I would like to thank you again for that great week spent in Portsmouth. I really enjoyed that way of working, that way of teaching.
I came back to France on Friday and I'm convinced that my English improved during that stay. Even if one week remains too short to realize huge improvement.
Anyway, I'm trying to follow your advice and I've podcasted many '6 minutes' on BBC. Iread a lot of English texts as well.
Hope to keep that motivation.
Thanks and have a nice week, Benoit (Ben)

2. Geraldine

Personal Description:
Highly experienced tutor, currently completing my PhD in chemistry at Imperial College London.

With an enthusiastic approach to learning and a real passion for my subject I develop students into inquisitive, capable learners and consider mentoring students in a love of science to be an important goal.

I achieved the highest grade possible in all science and maths subjects during my school education and having completed my Masters in Chemistry at Oxford in 2011 I have also worked in various roles in industry and academia, allowing me to convey the real significance of science to the students who study with me.

A & A/S-Levels : 4As (2007)
GCSEs : 9A*s, 2As (2005)

Teaching Experience:

Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

I have over three years experience, teaching over 100 students from secondary up to undergraduate level. I am a professionally trained undergraduate tutor and laboratory demonstrator, recently awarded an Associate Fellowship of the HEA in recognition of my contribution to undergraduate learning and my continuing development as an educational practitioner.

As a result of my teaching programme at Imperial College, I was awarded a Student Academic Choice Award - chosen by the students - for excellence in chemistry tutoring and communication.

Alongside my direct tutoring experience I have also taken part in the assessment and development of teaching material in chemistry and in the interview process at Imperial College, allowing me to offer targeted advice for students who wish to excel. Having attended both Oxford and Imperial College I can offer highly relevant admissions advice for university entrance interviews at Oxbridge and London-based institutions.

Working with students from across the world, I have experience of tutoring students whose first language is not English and am familiar with dealing with any issues that arise from this.

Some reviews of my work:

"My teaching experience with Peter has been really positive, he really challenges me to achieve my best and I have particularly developed my critical thinking skills with him" (A-level student)

"Peter is really friendly and helpful, as an international student who has studied in several countries I can say his methods are very strong and he explains complicated topics very well" (A-level student)

"I struggled with several areas of my course before studying with Peter, but now things are so much easier! He can explain things in so many ways when I'm stuck, highly recommended" (GCSE student)

"Peter is one of the best tutors we have had and is always on time and prepared, he is obviously very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches" (Parent of GCSE student)

"My daughter had lessons with Peter for several months and her confidence in the subject increased hugely over this time, I would strongly recommend his services, the improved exam results speak for themselves" (Parent of A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

Having taught scientific subjects up to undergraduate level I have a keen understanding of the different learning styles of students and am able to adapt my teaching to suit the student.

Using various teaching methodologies to deepen understanding, wherever possible I like to employ additional techniques such as scientific software and interactive elements alongside theory in order to bring the subject to life.

Students who study with me are encouraged and supported in developing critical thinking skills, by analysing information more deeply, allowing them to become more efficient, resourceful learners in the future.

I have two main approaches for the students I teach:
For students struggling in a subject I aim to build up confidence in the area by ensuring lessons are relaxed and engaging rather than focused on specific topics. Once a student has become more comfortable in the subject, more targeted study can take place based on the syllabus.
For students who are competent in their subject but need additional support to excel, I take a more focused approach and work with the student on any weak points and advanced topics, supported by exam technique and practice questions.
In both cases I aim to broaden the knowledge of the student beyond specific subject guidelines, with the goal of developing a passion for their subject.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Description:
My name is Patricia and I am a Brazilian native living in west London. I have managed to help many friends perfect their: Portuguese dialect, writing, and reading in the past and thought I would expand by assisting others. Those interested might be: students hoping to revise for GCSEs, those with Portuguese speaking business partners, or those who might be looking to improve their everyday phrases for an upcoming trip. Whatever your level of ability, I can help you.

Teaching Experience:

One-to-one tutoring with friends and family members.

Tutoring Approach:

I have booklets prepared for different ranges of ability and find that verbal repetition with the use of Portuguese songs happen to be most successful. The use of repetition allows for the correction of possible errors with diction or male/ female forms.

Subjects

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)
