Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of Modern Languages and I have 20 years' experience of teaching French and German up to and including GCSE and 'A' level with a proven track record of helping to improve pupils' grades.

Personal Description:
Hello - thanks for looking at my tutoring page. I am an experienced teacher, having worked in a range of schools over the last 7 years. I am an active musician, composing music as well as performing - both as a singer and an organist. I have broad musical interests - I'm just at home listening to John Grant as I am to Rachmaninov. I'm friendly and approachable, and keen to help all people to meet their full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a teacher since graduating from the University of Oxford in 2007. I completed my PGCE Teacher Training in 2008, working in a range of contrasting environments. I spent the first two years of my teaching career at a school in Gloucestershire, where I was responsible for developing teaching resources at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. I currently head up the Music Department in a high-achieving school in Wimbledon. I am very experienced teaching the Edexcel and AQA GCSE, AS and A2 Music courses, but am also a Senior Examiner for AQA in their A Level papers. I have previous experience of teaching History to A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

More than anything, I think that it is important to establish your goals for our tutorials at the start. This ensures that we can work together to get the results you want. I am able to travel (within reason) to your house via public transport/car. I have lots of helpful resources that I have produced and published which will greatly aid your learning and help you to increase your understanding. I am able to tutor via Skype or Facetime if this is more convenient to you. I run Sibelius at home. I am friendly, approachable and professional with a strong knowledge of music and history. I am able to help with University preparation should this be of interest and work closely with pupils in their applications for Music College/Oxbridge.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher for all ages, from toddlers to business adults and I am also a postgrad MA student at Christie's Education studying Modern and Contemporary Art History. I studied Art History at Manchester where I achieved a high 2.1 and gained a First in my dissertation and so understand fully what it takes to structure and compile a piece of writing comprehensively and eloquently.

I am London based and have a bright engaging personality and outlook on teaching in order to engage and interest my students as much as possible in their lessons and their work. I aim to encourage and ensure progression to all my students of all ages, as I myself understand it is never to late to learn, however old or young you are.

My TEFL qualification has certified me as capable of teaching English as a foreign language to young learners, teenagers, large groups, one on one, business language and social.
From my time at school and also at university I understand comprehensively the skills required to achieve optimum marks and I have an extensive knowledge for History of Art at both A Level and University Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for the past three years and in those years I have predominantly taught younger children (6-14 year olds) as well as young adults (18-27 year olds). These have been in small groups or private tuition. I have taught students from a variety of countries including Russia, China, Italy and France to name a few.
I am more than capable of nurturing and handling the quietest and shyest of students to the very naughty and the very confident!
I was a peer mentor throughout University and helped settle new students into university life and assisted with any problems they may have. I gave talks on essay writing and study skills for both exams and essays at different points throughout the year.
If needed or more convenient I have also been trained to teach over the phone or through skype and have taught several people this way. If this sounds a more appealing means to take your lessons then feel free to ask me about this as an option.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on building a trusting relationshipewith the student and aim to build their confidence in the subject they are struggling with.
I will assess the students standard of knowledge and ask what areas they most wish to cover and what areas they feel they struggle with the most. From this first assessment I will then build a suitable lesson plan and rough timetable of topics and activities for them to complete and work on. So that they feel they are gaining as much as they can from every lesson with me.
I am firm but kind! I have a very calm nature and do not think it is positive to aggressively force students into situations or topics that do not interest them or are of no use. However, I will push them as much as I feel necessary in order for them to progress as far as possible and achieve the highest results.

Personal Description:
I am an electronics and telecoms engineering college graduate. I have an overseas degree in law. I work for a big transport infrastructure company as an engineering manager. I love teaching and sharing my vast knowledge in that which I know.

Teaching Experience:

My experience is mainly in coaching and one to one instruction and mentoring. I am patient and I go that extra to make sure the student gets the best of what I offer.

My approach is to give an overview of the value of education in general and to establish interest in the subject. I then coach the student to understand that the success story is centred on him or her no matter how good I am. In other words I give 5-10 free minutes of motivating the student before the real lesson

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be articulate, eloquent and competent in the field of literacy. I have a great love of the written word and all forms of creative writing. I am a firm believer that the use of comprehensively impeccable speech and literacy can substantially improve ones progression in any field, be it professional or personal. Mastering the use of the English language and being able to articulate ones thoughts via speech or written correspondence is an invaluable life skill. I have always loved to read, write and study all aspects of literature and media. I have spent time as a critic, a reviewer and a freelance writer, as I revel in any opportunity to write.

Teaching Experience:

I have privately tutored individuals who wished to improve their ability to write. I assisted in all manner of writing; for example, I tutored university students in writing papers, assessments, personal statements, Curriculum Vitae and course work. I taught students at GCSE, A Level and Primary level how to study literature, history and media and produce competent work for educational and personal use.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be forever grateful for the opportunity to share my love of the English language and help those struggling in the field, or wish to enhance their ability.

Hello, I am a Spanish native speaker. I studied two Education Degrees in Spain and I would like to start to teach my language here.

Teaching Experience:

I work as Spanish Teacher Assitant in Reigate Grammar School.
Last year, I was Au pair and I looked after two children and I taught them Spanish.
I also can help adults with different goals like travelling, socializing, living abroad, any reason actually. The lessons are mostly focused on Speaking and Listening, in order to help prepare you to communicate well with native Spanish speakers. I also cover off Grammar, Vocabulary, Writing and Reading - these are all very important in becoming fluent in Spanish.
When I help kids to work towards their GCSE, AS and A2 Spanish exams, my lessons are more formal and structured. but whatever the lesson, I always try to make my students feel comfortable and relaxed, no matter what age they are.
My teaching style is relaxed and I aim to build your self-confidence in Spanish,
I also organize other activities related to Spanish language.
Moreover, I offer a wide range of prices and packs for every kind of needs and availability. (One to one and groups)

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.
