Personal Description:
I am 50 years of age and have a wealth of experience in many aspects of life, including education and commerce. I have taught in colleges and schools and have run my own computer software company. I also have experience of property development. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy the challenge of helping students to achieve their best; I enjoy working one to one with students or in small groups; tutorials are tailor made for each student, based on an assessment and previous exam results. I have a BA and a BSC(hons) degree in maths and computing. I also hold qualified teacher status and a Secondary Mathematics Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

Teaching Experience:

25 years of teaching experience including 20 years teaching Motor Vehicle Technology in colleges in Cornwall, Bristol and Essex and 5 years teaching mathematics and several other subjects in secondary schools. I am also a qualified NVQ assessor for Motor Vehicle Engineering.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that to enable a student to achieve their best a "hands-on" approach is best. Building on strengths and developing weaknesses. I like to work with the students past exam papers so I know exactly where they need help. lessons are are tailor made to the individuals needs.

Personal Description:
My teaching style is relaxed and friendly, making learning fun but rewarding and with a serious commitment for students to succeed. Friendly, approachable, a good sense of humour, empathetic, patient, dedicated and enthusiastic about teaching, I do my utmost to ensure that my students feel that their learning experience is fulfilling and rewarding.

I do not drive so rely on public transport to get me to and from tutoring jobs, I have put a 15 mile limit on my details but am willing to consider longer distances, however this would incur further travel costs so must be negotiated at the time of booking/hiring my services.

Teaching Experience:

Over 20 years experience teaching 14 years to adults, teaching CV writing (and all areas of Employability), Basic and Soft Skills (including confidence building), Business Enterprise Levels 1, 2 & 3, NVQ Business Administration Levels 1 an 2 and ESOL pre-entry to Level 2. Qualified to Cert Ed, City & Guilds, along with certified in Teaching Literacy and Numeracy to Adults (9380 series), D32/33 Assessors Award and V1 Internal Verifier Award. Currently sourcing a college to study for the Literacy Level 4 Specialism and also to gain ESOL qualifications.

in the last two years I have gained diplomas in Aroma Stress Therapy, Flower Essence Therapy, and in Crystal Healing; an can now either offer any of the therapies themselves, or teach the basics of them.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is to get to know my students and identify their particular needs, then, working together, devising a programme best suited to them. I am flexible and adaptable according to the student's needs, learning style and learning barriers.

I am more than willing to adapt whatever programme of delivery decided on to best suit the needs of my student, for instance with regard to number of hours per week, number of weeks needed etc.

Personal Description:
I'm a Research Fellow at Cranfield University. I found Chemistry very difficult at High School and have worked hard over the last 8 years studying the science, in the process of gaining my Honours degree and Doctorate, to improve my understanding but I honestly still find it difficult at times. I have a huge amount of enthusiasm for my science and find myself reading Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy in my spare time as well as watching countless lectures and home made videos from other scientists on YouTube.

Teaching Experience:

I have a moderate amount of tutoring experience but I'm confident that this is compensated by my energy and knowledge of my field, I love what I do and revel in helping people understand it with me.

Professionally I have worked with many masters students and tutored them on some more advanced aspects of Chemistry such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and practical Organic Chemistry. I also lecture on several subjects at my University and have received excellent feedback.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually try to work with images first to help the student picture what we are trying to learn. I find that once a student has a working model or analogy in their head it is much easier to advance and increase their understanding eventually leading to the removal of the analogy.

I find that exercises are useful to build a strong memory of facts and figures associated with the science. I don't believe in learning by rote (although it will pass most exams) if you are interested in a sound understanding of a theory or subject. Any tutoring that I provide will be tailored to the student's particular preference in learning style.

Teaching Experience:

I have obtained good reviews across the board and find tutoring a rewarding job to see pupils grow and achieve their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

Personal Description:
I was born in mainland China where we speak standard Mandarin, after graduated from university I moved to Shenzhen, the first city applied Open Policy in China. During 6 years living and working there, I learnt very fluent Cantonese.

At the end of 1999, I came to UK in pursuing further education. I achieved my MBA degree and Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language in UK. During the break between these two studies, I also gained Interpreting certificate which enables me to do the interpreting jobs between English and Chinese language.

Maybe I have a little bit gift in learning language myself? My English pronunciation is rather good so that some of my English friends even said it can hardly tell I am not English from talking with me through the phone.

Hopefully I've reassured you that there is no barrier in me communicating with your child if you are worried that, as a Mandarin native speaker, I might have strange accent in English speaking.

I firmly believe that, language learning, is not just about to learn the language itself, but also the culture. The better perception of culture will certainly enhance the language learning. Therefore, I will integrate rich Chinese culture into my teaching, of course in various passionate ways to make the class full of the fun!

Teaching Experience:

I have being teaching Mandarin for many years, such rich experience has directed me into setting up the Mandarin teaching business in Croydon. As a specialist in teaching Mandarin, I never limited my role as a business founder only, but with more contribution as a chief tutor.

After School Clubs (Mandarin) in local schools;
Taught adults students for SOAS London University in 2010;
5 years private tuition in Mandarin;
3 years interpreting and translation experience.

Tutoring Approach:

For the learners whose mother language is totally different to Mandarin, particularly for those at very young ages, a fun, exciting and interesting learning environment is crucial to avoid boredom. I will tailor lessons to help individuals to overcome their difficulties; at the very beginning, prior to learning speed, I will make effort to ensure students to grasp the basic of Chinese, in which way, students will be much easier to keep up in the future learning.

FYR: All my GCSE students' results are above grade A, 98% of which got A*.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from the University of Warwick with a B.A. in politics. I have an excellent academic record; I received firsts in three of the eight modules that made up my degree, my second year work was praised for its excellence by the examinations board and my contributions to seminars were praised by lecturers. Prior to this I completed A-levels in economics, history and politics (all at grade A) at Pate's Grammar School. I have a comprehensive knowledge of and passion for the subject area; I have had work experience with the BBC's Sunday Politics and am the author the "Young Citizens Agenda for the UK".

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience assisting younger family members with GCSE and A-level work. I was the person to come to at school for A-level politics advice.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work to understand the specific needs of the individual tutee. This will involve closely examining the syllabus of the specific course which they are undertaking set against what they need to do to produce work that will get into the better grade boundaries. This will require working with the tutee to understand their own learning style so they are able to do this. But most importantly I hope to generate an genuine enthusiasm for politics and current affairs.

Personal Description:
I am a twenty-seven year old student living in Tooting, London. I am an actor having completed a three-year diploma in professional acting from The Oxford School of Drama. Before this I gained a First Class BA (Hons) in English Literature and Drama from the University of Sheffield.

I have a real passion for education and feel I am perfectly placed to help students having just completed my actor training I know what constitutes good teaching.

Having a degree in English Literature and Drama means I would be confident to tutor in English Literature, English Language, Theatre Studies and Drama at A Level or below.

I can also direct speeches for drama school entry and advise on applications.

Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in teaching ages 7-19.

I have also run large group workshops with secondary and primary school children.

I have also studied teaching techniques used in museums and devised theatre projects to communicate exhibits to varying age ranges.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer that the best way to learn is by interaction. I am myself a creative learner, and thus my teaching takes a creative slant.

I am passionate about theatre and the power that human interaction has on learning so I embark on lively lessons designed to create enthusiasm for subjects - so students will not just see them as perfunctory nuisances. I am also incredibly logical and a rigorous planner, who can create realistic targets and see them come to fruition.

Personal Description:
A professional and experienced tutor, I've studied maths and physics at degree level. I've considerable experience of teaching in colleges, summer schools, within companies and in one-to-one sessions, with students of all ages and abilities. In addition to this, I spent over a decade delivery training to corporate professionals. I now specialise in maths intervention at primary level.

Teaching Experience:

I've worked with students of all ages from 5 to 75 and across a variety of subjects and levels. What I've enjoyed most is seeing the progress all my students have made, but particularly those with learning challenges - whether it's to do with subject knowledge, concentration or behaviour. I've found that infinite patience is often the answer!

Tutoring Approach:

Absolutely key to tutoring is flexibility and adaptability. Everybody is different and learns in different ways. Each session starts out with specific topics and goals in mind, but these can - and often do - change as the session progresses and other priorities come to light. My challenge is to find a way to achieve those goals that will suit the student, taking into account what they already know, and how they best absorb and retain new information.

And finally, although I'm not there to become the student's friend, it's nevertheless essential that I build a rapport with them quickly to foster a supportive yet friendly learning environment. This helps ensures the sessions are as productive as possible.

Personal Description:
I am a conscientious, patient, enthusiastic, sociable and highly motivated person who is reliable, responsible and hard working. As a teacher of italian I can say that I chose to do this job because I like to know about languages and different culturures and during long years of travel around Europe and Middle East, I realized that languages are important to tie people in the world. I have an excellent knowledge of my mother language which is Italian, the grammar an also of the different dialects that are scattered throughout Italy. I am courious to find differences between words, to know historical reasons and development of languages. Italian is a beautiful language, the sound is warm, like a song and during the last years I have found hundreds of people that want to learn it. That is why I decide to teach,people want to be able to talk with anyone, whatever their nationality. For me languages teaching is synonymous with cultural exchange: by fostering and interest in language, we stimulate intercultural awareness and empathy for others. I taught italian to different people with different ages, cultural background( arabic,bengali,european) and different life experiences and I developed excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the proven ability to achieve targets and results following a personal method depending on difficulties and abilities to facilitate their learning.
Amongst my many hobbies are several sports, including football, run, volleyball and high jump.
I love to write poetry, just because is my way to vent different feelings; reading, specially essays and middle eastern historical books.
I love to travel around the world and getting in touch with different cultures, in particular, I really like to know what differs from culture from the others as regard the social aspect of daily life and just as the food, language and family relations and interpersonal skills. I am really intrested in arabic culture.
I love to cook and try recipes from other countries.
I am very friendly so i love spend time with people and socialise and help them when they needed, specially during my teaching job even I always try to be professional.

Teaching Experience:

*Italian tutor freelance at all levels;
*Italian teacher trainee, London- UK

I taught 10 hours of italian lessons as L2 during my training in CELTA (teaching italian as foreign language to adults) to beginner and total beginner classes level (A1) and intermediate level (A1.1/ A1.2)

*Italian teacher, Rome- Italy

I taught italian as L2 in a class of Bengali adults for a voluntary purposes association.

٭Translator freelance, Rome - Italy and London - UK
Constant and actual job on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually apply and i strongly believe in an inductive method "spiral" dividing the teaching materials in different lessons and working cyclically on the different levels of learning(written and spoken comprehension, writing production and oral production);
I give attention to details and needs of the students and how to work with different levels and different learning skills;
I alwaysprogram, before lessons, some activities with a detailed lesson plan and interactive material;
Use of grammar books when needed.

Personal Description:
My name is Davínia and I am a Spanish language assistant (MLA) in Aberdeenshire. I am from Alicante (Spain) and I am a native bilingual speaker of Spanish and Catalan. Moreover, I have the C2-Proficiency level of English (certified by Cambridge University).

Regarding my qualifications, I am a fully-qualified teacher of English as a foreign language in Spain since I have the equivalent title to the PGCE by the University of Alicante (Spain). I have also certificates by the University of Alicante, the International University Menéndez Pelayo and the Pennsylvania State University that show my experience and knowledge teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

Previously, I gained my M.A. in Applied Linguistics and Language Acquisition in Multilingual Contexts at the Universitat de Barcelona. Here I developed my knowledge about bilingual and multilingual education and societies, Sociolinguistics, languages in contact, methodology and statistics. Moreover, I specialized in Educational Sociolinguistics with my M.A. Thesis "From Primary to Secondary School: a Case Study of Changes in Language Attitudes among Students of the Bilingual Programs in Alacant". Results and conclusions of this M.A. Thesis have been presented in several international congresses (AESLA, 1st International Congress on Bilingual Education at the University of Cordoba, XVI International Congress from the Spanish Society of Language and Literatura Didactics among others).

I also received graduate education in Hispanic Linguistics at the Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA) where I learned everything related to Phonology, Syntax and First Language Acquisition. Finally, I got my BA in English Philology at the University of Alicante (Spain) majoring in Linguistics and Catalan.

In my free time, I love swimming, watching TV shows and films as well as going to the theatre to enjoy plays and musicals.

Availability:
Tuesday from 8am until 12pm.
Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm until 8pm.
Friday from 2pm until 8pm.
Saturday and Sunday from 8am until 8pm.
I am willing to travel around Aberdeen city and the surrounding areas of Cults, Peterculter and Banchory.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working as a Spanish language assistant at two high schools in Aberdeenshire (Scotland) and I am also in charged of the Spanish Club for the staff members of one of the high schools.

I also worked as a teacher or English as a foreign language at the private academy Climbing English Centre (Alicante) where I gained experience teaching English to people of any age range: from babies who were 2 years old up to elderly people who were 60/70 going through teenagers who were between 13 up to 18 years old or adults trying to get official certificates from Cambridge University and TRINITY. I also offered private lessons to students in primary, secondary and post-secondary education.

Moreover, as part of my teaching qualification, I did my internship of teaching English as a foreign language ate the bilingual state high school IES San Vicente (San Vicente del Raspeig, Alicante).

As part of my experience at Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA), I received teaching instruction and worked as a Spanish lecturer in basic and intermediate undergraduate Spanish courses.

Finally, I also worked as au pair in Oxfordshire (England). I was in charged of three siblings who were 13, 10 and 9. I had to take care of them, entertain them and teach Spanish as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

All my personal experiences learning and teaching foreign languages have shown me the important role that teachers, language assistants and tutors play in a classroom setting and, specially, in the long journey of learning a new language.

Furthermore, being a language learner for so many years has given me the ability to predict and to overcome difficulties that students may have in the process of acquiring a language.

Additionally, I believe that a language is linked to cultural aspects which enrich it and make it more interesting. This is why I look for resources that transmit the vast culture that Spanish carries and I try to create didactic materials that appeal to students' interests so as to keep them motivated and interested. I usually introduce the content and then the students have to solve a task (task-based teaching).

Based on the previous ideas, I feel working as a tutor would provide me with the perfect setting to develop my teaching skills and I am willing to contribute to my total commitment and enthusiasm to the teaching of my own culture, my two native languages and English as a foreign language.
I am also looking for new challenges in the work and research world so as to keep learning and gaining professional experience.
