Personal Description:
I am a very keen and enthusiastic university graduate and love to help others learn. I specialize with children and young adults. I am a good role model as I am bubbly, show confidence and balance my career with my social life including my sports (rock climbing and snowboarding).

I have a range of experience in childcare and tuition and find different ways for my pupils to understand the materials they are learning. I find ways in which they can relate to the information which helps them retain the information for longer.
I have had several years of experience with private tutoring producing great results (please ask if you would like a reference).

Teaching Experience:

All throughout my University degree I was working part-time at Explore Learning, a Maths and English tuition center designed to help children with their national curriculum between the ages of 5 and 14. This has given me valuable experience on many different teaching techniques as well as keeping up to date with the new learning strategies that children are using in their day to day learning at school.
My one on one tutoring experience ranges from GCSE level to Primary Maths and English including other topics such as Current affairs.
On a sporting level, I gained my Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors qualification in 2009 and have continued to teach snowboarding over in Italy with Interski in my university holidays.

Quote from a reference: 'Rabia will definitely miss your cheery and happy persona. She has had other tutors but with nowhere near the enthusiasm and effort that you put in! She looks forward to you coming and has a real connection with you.'

Tutoring Approach:

I have many different approaches to learning, dependant on the age of the pupil. I like to use targets and rewards to keep motivation levels high and learning is fun by relating the subject to my tutee's everyday life. I ensure there are several reviews and assessments to enhance progression and keep on track.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor with first class honours in Modern and Medieval Languages and Literature from Cambridge University. I am also a working actor with six years of professional experience throughout theatre (Shakespeare's Globe, Edinburgh Royal Lyceum, Northern Stage, Southwark Playhouse), television (BBC, ITV, Sky) and radio (Radio 4).
I also have 5 A-Levels at A grade, 10 GCSEs (9 A*s - for my English Literature GCSE I received the top mark in the country - and 1 A).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a committed tutor for a number of years now, dedicated to enabling others. Additionally as an Educational Practitioner with the Globe Theatre, Propeller Theatre Company and as a freelance Workshop Leader, working with 8-18 year olds (and often international students who speak no English!) I have learned first hand the power of facilitating learning in others.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very keen to tailor my tuition to the specific needs of the tutee ie. try to identify subject areas in which they themselves felt under-confident. If a "general" improvement is sought then of course I would structure the sessions around what I felt would be most useful; as a jobbing actor I am able to thoroughly prepare each lesson plan around the needs of the individual, and insodoing, to maximise the efficiency of the time "in the classroom"! I myself was tutored outside of school during my adolescence, so know what a tiresome experience external tuition can sometimes be, especially on top of an increasingly demanding schedule within school, so would be keen to make this experience as harmless, instructive and hopefully fun for the tutee as possible! It is something I am deeply passionate about.

Personal Description:
Trained at the School of Design in Altos de Chavon (Affiliated to Parsons New School for Design, New York), my art has taken me all the way around the world from the Caribbean, South America to Hong Kong to Portugal, and now UK. My technique varies depending on projects and as I have a strong background in Design Programs such as Adobe Creative Suite, in Fine Arts/ Illustration mediums such as Oil paints, Acrylic, Pastels, etc. Performing Arts, and exhibition assistant, I like to keep an open mind always and that has lead my art to be very versatile.

I teach Spanish as well. Its a great language and fun to speak, and very easy to learn.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2+years as an Art teacher and have been a private tutor for a few months.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understand, confidence and enthusiasm for each project. My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and homework to check understanding continually.

I usually focus on exam-style, past paper questions, or drawing exams in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. Where appropriate I set and mark work, giving students detailed feedback so that they can improve quickly.

Personal Description:
I recently returned to the UK after a number of years living and teaching in China, and now I wish to use the experience i have gained over the years to help students who need to learn English in the UK.
When i am not working i enjoy travelling and playing sport. In addition to living in China, i have also lived in New Zealand and Australia and travelled extensively in Europe.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years. My experience has been gained predominantly in China, though i have taught at a college in the UK. I have taught a variety of nationalities and also all ages and levels. I possess both the CELTA and DELTA teaching practice qualifications. I was also an IELTS speaking and writing test examiner for two years and have passed a Cambridge certified online course in the teaching of IELTS.

Tutoring Approach:

Having lived and worked in China for many years, i am aware of the difficulty of learning a foreign language. However,i believe that with the right attitude, approach and guidance it is possible to achieve your study goals in any language.
I believe in establishing realistic and quantifiable goals when beginning tutoring for progress to be measured against. I also believe that work done in a student's own time is as important as work done in a formal classroom setting. Regular review of what has been studied is also vital.

Personal Description:
I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic BA/MA History graduate with a background in teaching and archives/museums.

My subject strengths are: History, English Literature and English Language.
I specialise in: improving literacy and academic writing skills, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and English as a Second Language (ESL), preparing for IELTS testing, coaching for exams/interviews and supporting students with special educational needs.

I have a History BA from Bristol University (First, 2008) and an Africa/Asia History MA from SOAS (Merit, 2011). For my MA I specialised in Chinese history. I am also a qualified Archivist (PG-Cert., 2:1, Dundee University, 2015).

I am passionate about history, languages, and arts. At school I studied Welsh, French and German and I have been learning Mandarin since 2010. I understand what it is like to study another language!

I have just moved to Leeds from Taiwan (May 2017) where I was a TEFL teacher and private English tutor.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching background spans 13 years. As a teaching assistant in mainstream schools (London and Bristol) I taught students with specific educational needs, such as ESL or dyslexia.
I have taught in residential schools for students with complex difficulties, including severe autism or Down's Syndrome.
I have mentored students with poor literacy skills and a background of truancy in order to build their confidence and motivate them to enjoy learning.

As a TEFL teacher I have taught English to children (3-18 years) and adults in India, China and Taiwan. I have taught one-to-one classes, and classes with between 2-25 students.
In Taiwan and China I privately tutored preparatory skills for IELTS (an international English proficiency test), business English and academic writing skills (e.g. dissertation and thesis writing). I coached one undergraduate preparing to study an MA in English Literature in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

As a child my family moved a lot and I went to many types of schools: state, private, bilingual, Steiner, Montessori, single sex and co-educational, so I am familiar with different teaching styles.

I work hard to enable my students to reach their learning goals and feel motivated to continue learning. I quickly find out each individual's learning needs, likes and dislikes so they will feel comfortable in our lessons and inspired to progress.

I am very flexible and willing to tailor our lessons to my students' preferred learning methods: I am able to adjust the structure, level and content of our lessons.

I inspire my students to believe in themselves and push themselves forward whatever their pace.
