Tutoring Approach:

I love to teach people who want to learn. A real joy for me is when people have enthusiasm but probably lack the techniques and the training to product a piece of work that satisfies them. We are all fierce critics of our own outpourings but understanding how to improve is the first step to feeling good about what we do. So many people have said to me that they would like to paint and draw but feel hopelessly inadequate when it comes to actually doing it. I can say that without doubt, all my students at Nene college felt that over the year they had finally produced work they were proud of and were amazed they could do this. I am a strong believer in drawing skills underpinning whatever style of painting is applied and so my starting point is always training to really see the world around us.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for reading this synopsis:

I speak six languages and have been teaching people of all ages and levels now since 2000. My level of success can be equated to the continuous success of my students for sixteen years.

I teach Portuguese, Spanish, English for Foreigners, Italian and French as a fluent native speaker because I have lived in the countries where these languages are spoken.

My degree is in Modern Languages and Linguistics, which means I also edit and translate work into various languages. My MA is in Linguistics and I have worked for years now with well known multinationals and celebrities.

Teaching Experience:

1994 - Taught English for Foreigners and Spanish at the well known Brazilian University of Campinas. I did this whilst doing a year abroad in Brazil to master Portuguese. My students where all faculty deans of that university.
1995-1997 - Taught English, Spanish and Portuguese in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Apple Language School
1997-1998 - Taught at Berlitz in Panama, Republic of Panama also in Quito, Ecuador, and Manchester University.
1999-2003 - Self-employed Language Tutor - teaching individuals and well known organisations such as Delloitte, Mercedes Benz, Unibanco, Santander, Lloyds TSB, DLA Piper International, Volkswagen, PwC and many others.
2003-2004 - Post- Graduate Degree in Modern Languages - Education - Taught at several secondary schools.
2005 - To Date - Have taught several students as a private tutor to pass all exams from GCSEs to Graduate degrees and Doctorates. I have also taught several well known footballers and celebrities.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach as I would like to be taught - By someone experienced who knows what systems work in a secure and fun environment.
I mastered new languages many years ago, but in order to succeed I had to try several systems before perfecting what I now offer - I understand that everyone has different needs so I simply adapt to your needs and make sure that you enjoy what you learn... and learn a lot.

Personal Description:
I see myself as a passionate musician, always looking to expand my skills and knowledge and share them with other musicians both live, in studio and through lessons.
As you will note, I finished my BMus (Hons) back in 2012, specialized in electric guitar and I have also acquired three years of Music Production/Technology at Linköping University, Sweden. I hold a CRB check as well as a Child Protection and Health and Safety Certificate.

As a versatile individual, I have been taking part in different professional situations where I have applied my skills as a musician, live, in studio and through private teaching. These experiences have solidified my confidence and have given me the opportunity to express myself musically as well as instructing my students to pursue their musical journeys.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching privately students of ages 8 - 45, for the last 20 months. For my lessons I have created my own material combined with information gathered from other sources (books, dvd's, masterclasses) and I also have used different guitar syllabuses in some cases.

Tutoring Approach:

My goal as a teacher is to share my appreciation for music with students and fellow musicians, by teaching a range of topics including Techniques, Sight Reading, Ensemble Performance, Style Studies, Composition and Music Production. Besides introducing new concepts to the students, I am positive about creating a fun and relaxed environment but challenging at the same time.
I usually choose songs that from my point of view are suitable for the students and combine that with other topics like the ones mentioned above. I find it very important to create fun and captivating lessons with the emphasis on the student's growth in the most efficient way. For every lesson taught, I keep track of the student's progress making sure that the information is learned and applied in context before moving on to new material.

I have a great love of literature, films and theatre and like working with students to develop their understanding of these subjects, but also their passion for them.

Drama Workshops - Secondary Schools (various)

English essay writing tutor - Degree level, Westminster University

Personal Description:
I am a part time lecturer at Gray's working on the short courses programme. I teach on the Portfolio Building, Drawing and Mixed Media courses. I am shortly to have an exhibition at the Howden Park Centre in Livingston as part of a six month residency. I am Recent graduate of the Slade MFA program and I have been consistently exhibiting since, such as the Creekside open selected by Richard Deacon/Lisa Milroy, the BFA Futures at the Mall gallery, York College and the Zetta Hotel in London. I have also been establishing a drawing and painting workshop at Marymount International school and have given talks on my work and the benefits of doing an MA.

I came to Art in my 30's as a mature student via short courses. This form of education is a great way of developing artists through a different route than more traditional means while opening up opportunities to a diverse field of practitioners. I feel very passionate about education and how it has transformed my own life which has given me fantastic opportunities that I could never have thought of. I believe that art should be for all and that everyone has the potential to be a great artist.

My own work involves drawing from life through strict observation through the genre of still life in. I work in oil, watercolour and acrylic which continues into both portraits and landscapes. With these I explore the relationship between the hand and the eye, nature and culture, the raw and the cooked and how this dichotomy exists in the historical and contemporary art. For example I am interested in the Gesture of the hand in Velazquez, Titian and Tintoretto as apposed to established Renaissance painting which where drawn and then filled with colour. I see a mirror to this in more conceptual art such as Art and Language or Sol Le Witt compared to a gestural painters such as Philip Guston, Morandi or Joan Mitchell.

Teaching Experience:

Present- Gray's School of Art 'Foundation Portfolio Building/Plus'. Mixed Media and Drawing (Short Courses)

2016- Marymount International School, 'Drawing from a Personal Object' workshop, ongoing.

2015- Kingston University, MA presentation

Awards
2016 Aberdeen City Council Creative Funding
2016 BFA Futures Award- Finding the Future of Figurative Art
2015 The Desiree Prize for Painting
2015 Nominated for the Land Securities Studio Award
2015 The Bergman Residency, Taroudant, Morocco
2012 The AP Fitzpatrick Prize for Painting

Tutoring Approach:

I believe drawing to be at the basis of all work. I see having a firm grasp of drawing from life as a key skill behind any artistic endeavour.

My own skills include:

Drawing and painting. (Accurate measuring and proportion, perspective, colour and tone.)
Oil, acrylic and watercolour techniques, uses and preparation.
Extensive knowledge of grounds, substrates and supports.
Working with clay, wood and metal
Photography and documentation of work by with Photoshop and a DSLR

Current issues and developments in contemporary art
Developing ideas through practice and research into finished work.
Application and interview techniques including portfolio preparation.

Personal Description:
I'm lucky, because through teaching, I get to live my passion. I love working with kids. I love inspiring learning. And I love the results .There's no better feeling than seeing one of your students finally "get it". Creative lesson plans and boundless energy are what I consider to be my hallmarks. I had the privilege of launching an entirely new curriculum at Shapala Primary School, bishop chancellor school. It was certainly a challenge, but with all new course materials, an all-school play and a trip to an English language theatre group, I knew the students were doing so much more than just going through the motions. i have been working as a tutor in uk for past 2years for maths,science for all levels .Personal tutors and Tutor fair agency.
I'm anxious to tell you more about my qualifications, why I'd like to be a part of tutoring at your class. I'll plan to follow up in a week's time. I am ready for immediate start can work flexible hours. In the meantime, feel free to contact me

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a 23 year old French and German graduate who is very passionate about languages and also studied English Language up to A Level. I've obtained an Upper Second Class Honours (2:1) from the University of Hull and am currently living and working in Bedfordshire. I am happy to travel to my students for tuition so my students can learn in the comfort of their own home, or if preferred they are more than welcome to come to my family home in Sharnbrook for tuition. I have spent time living in both France and Germany last year and would be happy to help out with any language struggles, as I understand first hand how daunting learning and speaking a language can be and I aim to help my students feel as comfortable as possible while providing excellent tuition.

Teaching Experience:

I have work experience as an assistant to the teacher at John Gibbard Lower School in Sharnbrook, along with studying the spoken language of children in pre-school and nursery as part of my A Level English Language course.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to get my students talking while making them feel at ease and as comfortable as possible. Languages can be very daunting as I know from personal experience, and I want to instill some confidence in my students along with aiding in grammatical errors and helping to build vocabulary for my students. I have a large range of resources, such as textbooks with grammar exercises up to A Level qualification and beyond, and will be very happy to help out in any areas where students are struggling.

I feel that I have a good approach with school students due to my age; I have only finished University this year, and I helped my younger sister and siblings of friends throughout my school life with their language struggles. I am a friendly and approachable person who wants to make lessons fun and educational rather than a chore, and I feel like this will massively help students retain information easier and motivate them further in their studies.

I am not perfect and am not aiming for perfection in my students; I am patient, enthusiastic and engaging and am willing to adapt my teaching skills from student to student. I am very aware of how to adapt from student to student; some students prefer working from a textbook with worksheets, and some prefer a more vocal and practical approach to language learning. Languages are not easy, and going from someone who struggled with confidence in my language skills throughout GCSE's to someone who delivered countless presentations throughout University in foreign languages and obtained an Upper Second Class degree, I feel as though I understand and can approach any issue with language learning that a student may have.

Personal Description:
I'm a 32 year old native French speaker, I was born in Saint Etienne, France and lived there for the first 18 years of my life after which I moved to the UK and worked with adults with learning difficulties.
I am married to a native English speaker and we raise our children in a bilingual environment.

I am a language and culture enthusiast and I have been studying Languages for 21 years, with skills from conversational to complete fluency in French, Spanish, English, Italian and Portuguese. I am extremely familiar with the process of language learning and all the obstacles that can be encountered and the amazing benefits one gains as their learning journey progresses.

I am enthusiastic and optimistic as well as reliable and organised.My previous teaching experience has had very positive outcomes. I can give you contact details of previous students when you get in contact with me.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2005, I have been giving home lessons to adults wishing to learn/improve their French for various purposes (moving abroad, professional, personal interest). All gave me positive feedback and confirmed that the tutoring had been very much appropriate to the needs they specified when hiring me.
Also, I teach classes of 7 to 11 years old twice weekly at a local primary school as well as training in a local secondary education school in Alton.

Tutoring Approach:

The sessions will start with a short series of tests to assess your level. Then, if it allows it, most of the tutoring will be in French. If not, we will build up your confidence to be able to switch to all French as soon as possible, although, not until you are comfortable with the idea.
I use French literature (from children's books to classic novels) and grammar books, DVD's to base my work on.
Homework will be given when I find it necessary and my students needs will be often reassessed to ensure maximum efficiency.
I like working in a calm and relaxed atmosphere and feel that it is very important that my students communicate how they feel about the services I am providing, so I can go back or slower if they need.

Personal Description:
I have been speaking Spanish for over 30 years and have a passion for the language, for Spain and the Spanish culture.

I have visited Spain every year since I was eight and regularly visit friends across the country and members of my family who live near Valencia.  I spent a year of my degree studying, living and working in Northern Spain, at the University of Salamanca.  I regularly update and improve my own language and teaching skills and most recently attended an intensive week's teaching and learning course in Málaga . 

I have a passion for watching people develop as foreign language speakers and have been privileged to share my enthusiasm for the language and culture across a range of ages and abilities -  from 5 years old to 70+ covering all levels from tourist, conversational, GCSE, A-Level and International Baccalaureate.  

Teaching Experience:

I have a degree in both Spanish and Teaching and have been teaching the language in colleges, primary and secondary schools for almost 10 years.  I am a co-author for the new CGP GCSE Study Guides and workbooks. I am also an examiner for the International Baccalaureate Course. 

Tutoring Approach:

I offer 1-2-1 Spanish tuition over the web using Skype or face to face tuition in the Exeter area.  I teach all ages from beginners to A-Level students; whether you are a total beginner, did Spanish at school and are looking at getting back into the language or are an advanced speaker wanting to hone your language skills. My strength is in working with you to create a tailored, relaxed and fun session. I will design a course with only you in mind.  I ensure your lessons have a balance between the four skills of speaking, reading, writing and listening. We will work at your pace.  Whatever your personal goal, we will achieve it.
