Personal Description:
Hello.
My name is Leonor. I am from Spain and 38 years old.

I am a teacher of Spanish and teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. I love my profession and find teaching more a pleasure than a job. I have discovered that teaching is a two way experience where the teacher often learns as much from the students as the students learn from the teacher. For me, teaching languages is a very rewarding experience. I work with a couple of colleagues online, so we can offer more languages tuition, such as English (British English), French, German, Portuguese and Entrance Exams. All of us are native, qualified and experienced.

I am especially passionate about my native language, Spanish. I love not only the expressive beauty of the written Spanish, but the enchanting, musical sound and rhythm of spoken Spanish. The magic of the language of Cervantes is one of the reasons I have dedicated my life to the study of languages, especially Spanish.

Besides a passion for languages and linguistics, I also enjoy traveling and tracing the roots of human history and civilization. I am especially fascinated by ancient history.

Teaching Experience:

1. Bachelor Degree in Teaching English. University of Cadiz, in Spain.

2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of Leon (Castilla Leon), in Spain.

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

I am a member of ELE Congress (Spanish as a Foreign Language).

Several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian) from children to adults, and all cases with really good results (available to show in case of need).

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on the Direct Method, I use a technique of teaching a foreign languages without reference to the students native language. This method of total immersion has been proven to be the most effective means of rapidly developing real language skills. It is recognized as one of the best methods for language instruction and currently used around the world. With this method, students quickly develop the ability to think in their new language. This approach is both easy and satisfying. Student progress is quite rapid. Students progress at their own pace in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. With my method, students will begin speaking their new foreign language from the very first lesson (guaranteed), even if they have never spoken a word of their new language before.

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammars tiresome and less than effective? COME AND TRY MY METHOD, THE DIRECT METHOD!

Personal Description:
I have a degree in Journalism and English and a Certificate in Education. I am able to tutor GCSE English Language GCSE English Literature, GCSE Maths, ESOL English Literature, GCSE Geography, GCSE Psychology and Media Studies to A level. I have given tuition to individuals and small groups of students at undergraduate level and offer friendly, relaxed lessons individually, or in groups up to five people, tailored exactly to what the pupil requires

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of one to one tutoring with both school and college students and adults, plus larger group teaching. I have been doing private tuition in my own home for four years now and its better for students to come to me as its a pressure free environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to teach from my home:
My home is quiet and fairly minimalistic. Lessons are held in my offce and I have a computer and Ipad that students can use.

I use the first meeting to talk about any difficulties in learning the subject in a formal educational setting and discuss any specific learning difficulties you may have. We can chat about strategies to help you learn more effectively and I will work with you at a pace that suits you. I will also ask the student to complete a learning styles questionnaire.


To the best of my ability I try to make subjects interesting to young people and re-engage them. I also encourage students to bring along any work they may be struggling with so I can go through it with them. I can help you get to where you need to be. Please only contact me and purchase my details if you are genuinely interested in my services. No time wasters please. Please note if you require me to travel to you there will be a charge.

Personal Description:
I am a French native and have been living in England since 2006. I studied and obtained my French degree at University in France. I have also completed a course to teach French as a Foreign Language.

Teaching Experience:

I worked two years in Northampton School for Girls as a french Language Assistant. During and since this time, I have also provided French tuition through Language Schools and privately for students and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on the speaking for the students to be able to use the language effectively, while integrating grammar, vocabulary, writing and reading. I use all sorts of documents (images, dialogues, flash-cards,...), either on printed sheets or interactively. When appropriate, I like to use sound materials as it is a good way to get familiar with the sounds and intonations of the language.

Personal Description:
In terms of academic qualifications, I have an accountancy and finance background with further specialization (MSc) in Finance and Risk Management. Throughout my educational years, I have been a distinction holder. During my MSc degree in UK as well, I have maintained my academic record. I can not only teach academic subjects but also assist research students in their research work as for the last three years i am working on the dissertations as well as on the coursework for students.

I am teaching for the last 5 years to students who are pursuing accounting and business studies as their career. I also helped students for modules like Human Resource, Project Management, Process Management, Research Methods and e.t.c.
I have done ACCA apart from this i am left with couple of exams of ACA and done CFAB. Apart from this i have also done undergraduate and Postgraduate.
I am doing job since 2008 and also has an experience of working as:
Career Advisor
Course Coordinator
Teacher Assistant
Accountant
Marketing supervisor for marketing campaign in PHILLIP MORRIS INT.




IN ACCA I HAVE THREE WORLD OVER DISTINCTIONS

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching all papers of ACCA even optional level.
I have experience of teaching Corporate Finance to Master level students of Aston University.
I have experience of teaching all the papers of Professional Stage Knowledge Module to ACA students.

I also taught the undergraduate and Postgraduate students of Birmingham University, Aston University, Warwick University, Coventry University, Nottingham University, Nottingham Trent University, Birmingham City University, Sheffield University, Wolverhampton University, University of East Anglia, Hull University, Derby University, University of Glasgow and several others.
I have experience of teaching AAT subjects to the students as well as all GCSE and A-Level students .
I am also assisting students with any assignment help they require.

Tutoring Approach:

I think for teaching one has to come to the level of the student and also one must be aware of the requirement of the specific paper with reference to exam I mean exam approach teaching is the best of all. I believe in quality of the lecture not the length of it.

Firstly, the students needs have to be understood and then the tutoring phase will carefully outlined and tutees will be taught according to their needs. Questions will be encouraged throughout the session as these are important for higher understanding.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified IT specialist and taught Computing and IT at secondary school. I am currently working as a tutor within schools and privately teaching English, Maths, Physics and IT. I am very patient, and approachable. I have years of experience working with both young people and adults, as in the past I was responsible for the training and development of 30 staff. I have carried out training needs analysis and recognized training and development resulting from the gaps identified. I helped the organisation to achieve both Investors In People and Charter Mark awards.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience training and development of employees in an organisation, working with consultants to develop training courses and workshops for the staff. I have taught very successfully for over 5 years in schools and have got really good feedback from students and parents. I am passionate about teaching and committed to helping students make real academic progress. I take a holistic view, I am supportive and sensitive to the students/tutees needs. I am able to work with tutees with special educational needs as I will differentiate resources accordingly. I generally agree and set targets, which are regularly checked to ensure progress towards the learning outcome. In tutoring, resources are tailored to meet the learner's needs. I have been developing my pedagogy and teaching skills by working in schools that provide education for students with special needs in particular those on the Autism Spectrum.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring sessions are interactive, fun and stimulating as I believe it is important to help students explore and understand their skills and knowledge base. I support each student in all aspects of learning, including homework support, speaking, listening, reading, writing, practical and functional skills, students undertake assessments to improve both their subject knowledge and examination results. I love this profession because you never stop learning; every new part requires research into a historical epoch or subject creating an expansive remit which no course I can imagine could afford.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about helping young people to learn and develop themselves. I have over 10 years experience working with children in a variety of roles, ranging from Deputy Director of Youth Camps to private tutor for academic studies and violin.

I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for learning in order to nurture their curiosity. Although I am very organised and task-focused, my methods are based on making learning fun, positive and engaging, as this has shown to work best in my previous roles.

In my free time, I have a passion for music and I play first violin in an amateur orchestra based in London. I also love travelling, learning new languages and experiencing new cultures whenever possible.

As far as my aspirations, I am currently working on setting up an organisation aimed at helping young women get into the technology sector.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience tutoring young people in France. Between 2007 and 2011 I worked with a number of students on a variety of subjects, ranging from year 5 to year 13. This ranged from general support for younger pupils and subject-focused tuition for A-Level students. I also currently give private French tuition to adults in London.

I worked with all of my students for at least one year, helping them to get a better grasp and understanding of the disciplines they were having difficulties with. I have always succeeded in my task of helping them to improve and reach a new level of achievement by setting challenging yet achievable targets. With one student, I helped her to discover the beauty of Spanish (a subject she had little interest in) and to get top marks for her A-level. Another I worked with across all disciplines and helped her to successfully pass her GCSE equivalents when she was predicted to perform poorly.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very passionate about tutoring and able to adapt to any challenges and find a solution that works for the individual student. I like to explore new ways of learning and find a way that helps the student to understand and appreciate concepts and ideas that they previously found complicated and to build on existing capacities.

I have worked both through agencies and directly with families and have received consistent praise for my work and dedication with my students. I am used to working with families with high expectations and understand the importance of a good communication with the parents as well as the student to keep them in the loop of the progress made and the steps implemented to reach the target set.

Personal Description:
I am a dedicated English and Media academic with a Masters Degree in English, a First Class Degree in Scriptwriting for Film and Television and a Masters Degree in Directing Digital Film & TV.

I also have a PAL certification for classroom based tutoring.

I can provide teaching in Film Studies, English (inc. GCSE, A'Level, English as a Foreign Language, Degree level and Basic and Reading and Writing skills), Communication Studies and Screenwriting.

I currently offer private tutoring, both online and in person to teenagers, college students, university students and adult learners, offering a patient and caring approach. My teaching and therefore my hourly rate is affordable as I do it for the love of the work.

As well as undertaking work for with the BBC (something the media / film students tend to be interested in) I have also worked on a number of feature films / short films, had articles published and I have won awards for my writing). Therefore, I have a considerable amount of practical and academic knowledge across the media industry, suitable for English, Film and Media Disciplines.

I really care about my students and helping them achieve their goals. I truly believe that anyone can do it if someone believes in their potential. Whether they are just starting out or if they are a mature learner. Everyone deserves to be the best they can be.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 9 years I have been providing a broad range of academic training courses and tutoring to students and adult learners in GCSE / A'level English, Digital Media and Scriptwriting, but I have also offered more basic reading / writing skills.

I currently work with a number of private students from GCSE level through to A' level and beyond, helping them achieve their goals and supporting them with the challenges that inevitably come with preparing and passing exams.

I have delivered classes to university level students, college students, school students and business owners across a wide range of disciplines.

I am always happy to provide references for my work too, so you can be assured of a great level of service.

Due to my work, I have a fully enhanced CRB check which is available for viewing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning through association with what you know, is the easiest way to tutor people of all ages. It generally helps students to identify more easily the knowledge they need to pass their exams.

Being very patient, I find it's better to adapt my tutoring to the individual, rather than apply a 'one size fits all'. This means a better success rate as different students have different strengths.

I usually like to assess learners at the beginning of meeting them / talking to them and then devise a target plan to help them achieve learning goals.

ONLINE TRAINING

At the moment, I offer English GCSE / A'Level, Media, Film Studies, English as a Foreign Language and bespoke University tutoring support, as well as reading and writing skills. I provide full support and 'real time' lessons with a clear structure. Each element is specific to the student being taught.

So if you are looking for a friendly tutor who will encourage you to speak better English or you want to tackle an essay or prepare for an exam, or you want to brush up on the basics, I can help.

I can deliver online tutoring at a time to suit you on an ad-hoc or more regular basis.

Whether you want help with GCSEs, A levels, basic skills, you would like help with media / communication studies or you would like to get to grips with some basic English, I can provide a positive and friendly approach that will actually help you and a very thorough teaching method.

FILM STUDIES

I cover the following areas:

Exploring Film
Exploring Film outside Hollywood
Exploring and creating
The 'language' of film
The organisations which produce, distribute and exhibit films and
The audiences for film.
Narrative
Film Making
Storytelling
Production

I'm an award winning writer, and media professional so am fully up-to-date with the latest techniques / syllabus requirements.

ENGLISH

Broadly speaking I cover the entire syllabus of the relevant level being studied for and the different areas in that level;

A'Level
GCSE
Literature study
Language
Grammar
Punctuation
Comprehension
Essay writing
Essay planning
English tools
Poetry study
Creative writing
Communication
Comparative analysis
Language acquisition
Basic reading
Basic writing

This list is not exhaustive but it should give you an idea.

I am particularly good with shy students or those who lack confidence.

I can travel to you within a reasonable distance at no extra cost or I can provide structured lessons online.

Should you want to use my services and you are outside of my catchment area, I can help but my hourly rate would reflect the distance / time to get to you, if it is outside of the travel radius I serve.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher and I also offer English, French and German for primary, secondary and adult learners. I teach English to young overseas students who are living and studying in the UK.

I am a BA Honours graduate in Modern Languages (French and German) and I speak both languages fluently, having lived and worked for several years in both countries. I also have a professional language qualification (Institute of Linguists Final Diploma) and speak some Italian.

Before embarking on my tutoring career, I held a number of senior marketing and communications roles both overseas and in the UK. I am a highly experienced writer, editor and proofreader.

I decided to take up tutoring as a second career because I am passionate about languages, and believe the skills I have gained working with different people in the UK and overseas give me the ideal background required to help students at all levels achieve their goals.

Teaching Experience:

I teach English to young overseas students who are living and studying in the UK. I have also have worked as a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher to groups of overseas students of mixed ages and nationalities on English Language courses in the UK, and have spent time working as a teaching assistant at a British primary school.

During my professional career I have mentored colleagues both in the UK and overseas, helping them to develop their English language skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, approachable and patient, with excellent communication skills and the ability to get on well with people of all ages, abilities and nationalities. I enjoy finding creative ways to improve the learning experience for my students, and I focus on identifying their individual needs and objectives. My classes are varied and interactive, and I actively encourage feedback and review progress to ensure they achieve their personal goals.

Personal Description:
I received a First Class Honours B. Sc. degree in computer science from Cardiff University, UK, in 2016 and I am currently working towards the Ph.D. degree in the field of Cyber Security at the same University. My research revolves around the security and privacy of Internet of Things devices (IoT). I have experience with programming languages such as Python, Java, and Matlab, as well as with a variety of other technologies. As a current PhD student I also have experience in various research and study methodologies. Finally I am fluent in Greek, English, and Italian.

Teaching Experience:

For the past year, apart from being a private tutor teaching mainly GCSE Computing/ICT and Greek Language, I have also been a Teaching Assistant at Cardiff University. There I have been teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students programming; Python and Java as well as Web Applications Technologies. Additionally, I have been supervising group projects for year 2.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to provide a solid grounding in the subject while paying close attention to the needs of the individual. Therefore, I will vary my tutoring style depending on the ability and needs of the student. I aim to run my tuition in support of the progression of my students through their subject syllabus, but I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires. I will also offer pre-exam revision sessions for all exams including modular resits and conduct end of topic tests and mock exams should the student desire.

As I aim to tailor my tuition to the individual I expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their subject progressions and their individual needs.
