Personal Description:
Buongiorno! I am Julie, I have been teaching Beginners Italian for 15 years, I lived in Milano some years ago, returning to the UK in 2001. I love teaching and always aim to make the lessons fun and not too scary for beginners!

Teaching Experience:

While living in Italy I taught English and Art, and since my return to UK I took my Italian A Level and having been teaching ever since. I really enjoy teaching and think that shows in my very interactive lessons!

Tutoring Approach:

The lessons are geared to getting you to speak Italian, of course we have to study some grammar but I try to keep it to friendly bite-size pieces, as the most important thing is having the confidence to speak with Italians

Subjects
  • Italian
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (30 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (30 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm a young, hardworking and dedicated secondary school Science teacher. Since graduating from University in 2009, I have been working with young people in various contexts; coaching trampolining, working abroad as an ESL teacher, private tutoring, and upon completion of my PGCE, working as a teacher in a highly successful Lancaster comprehensive school. Energetic, approachable, and confident, I'm able to relate well to young people.

In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit and exploring the outdoors. I'm passionate about the environment and have been involved in various conservation and wildlife projects both locally and further afield. In my school holidays I enjoy travelling around the world and love meeting new people.

Teaching Experience:

Successful completion of PGCE in summer 2014 and immediate permanent employment at Ripley St Thomas Church of England Academy as a Science teacher. I have been teaching the new Science curriculum at KS3 (years 7 and 8), AQA dual Science GCSE in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and the new 2016 curriculum to triple award Biology GCSE.

Private Maths tutoring for students completing GCSE's in 2010; all of whom showed excellent progress and went on to achieve their target grade.

1 year teaching English language to a range of ages (5 - adult) and abilities (beginner - intermediate) in Vietnam including one-to-one home tutoring.

Volunteer placements in Cambodia and the Philippines teaching underpriviledged children English and Marine Biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel it's important to make my lessons interesting, challenging and enjoyable for all students. Lessons should always be well structured, using tailored resources closely linked to the curriculum under study. I believe students should work hard and be active in their learning; during my years of study and teaching I have gathered a wide range of resources and activities that build in difficulty to make this possible.

I'm flexible in my approach to tutoring as I'm aware that the needs of different students will vary greatly and will change over the course of tuition. As a general guide, I will:

1) Identify key problem areas with students prior to their first session
2) Compile a short, concise list of learning objectives giving greater emphasis on addressing these areas
3) Work through objectives using the current curriculum tailored to the students' individual learning style
4) Summarise and check off learning objectives with the student, addressing misconceptions if and when they arise
5) Recommend any extra reading/work to enhance students understanding (also giving homework when this would be beneficial)

Personal Description:
Hello! I am 39 years old, originally from Denmark and moved to the UK 13 years ago for my degree. Before teaching, I worked as a monkey veterinary technician in the US, conducted my Masters research on crop-raiding macaques in Indonesia, and helped to run a volunteer expedition in the Amazon. After a couple of years of teaching in secondary school as a Science and Spanish teacher, I heard the call of the wild again and travelled for a year through Mexico and Central America. I have worked for an independent school in the Rochdale area for over 5 years and have gained experience tutoring a wide range of subjects and a wide range of ages.

I have an up to date enhanced CRB.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my teaching degree in 2007 at Canterbury Christ Church University. I trained in two very different types of schools, private Catholic school and selective high school, which gave me the experience to engage students of different abilities and backgrounds. I also received training to teach EAL and SEN students. My teaching qualification is in Science, but as a fluent Spanish linguist I have also taught Spanish to both adults and children in schools and private tuition. I teach Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics up to GCSE level. I can also teach English Key Stage 3.

Tutoring Approach:

Students, young and old, don't like subjects they don't think they can succeed in. My approach is to break down material, relate it to everyday life and interests, and positively reinforce all the way to build up confidence. I am stubborn (!) and I don't give up until it's mastered.

Personal Description:
I am a student at the University of Bath and am currently in my third year of a four year course, studying BA French, Italian and European Studies (History, Politics, Culture and Literature of Europe). In compliance with my degree, this year must be spent abroad and so I have just finished my summer employment at a private language summer school in Belgium, working as an English teacher.

I teach French on Twitter, where I have over 16,000 followers and regularly respond to questions and update my page daily with useful phrases, every day speech and more complex language issues.

My passion for learning and teaching languages stems from when I moved to France at the age of 13 with my parents, not one of us spoke a word of the language - other than the vague memories of the beginnings of GCSE, with the only words springing to mind being 'ruler' and 'pencil'. It's really just not ideal when you're actually in the centre of a new culture, and not in a classroom.

I didn't have friends for the first few months there because of the language barrier (it didn't help either that I was home-schooled so it was incredibly hard for me to even meet people!). So I just had to learn the language. In teaching myself it, I know what works, I know the easiest ways to memorise words and phrases, I know what to do and what will be easiest for you.

After three years of living in France, my parents decided to move back to the UK where I continued my language studies at a scholastic level; completing my AS Level and my A2 Level in French, gaining an A in both.

My passion for Italian stems from my father's family being Sicilian. We moved there, also when I was 13, however, sadly we only spent a very brief time there - it was a spontaneous country-hop so we really just were not prepared for the culture shock. Again, none of us spoke the language, so I began teaching myself and then continued again when I came back to the UK to study.

English is my native language and I have taken my A Levels in English Language.

Teaching Experience:

While teaching, my classes would change weekly, so during my stay there I gained the experience of teaching 9-17 year olds, with English levels ranging from absolute beginner, A1 to almost native, C1.

I gained many skills, including, but not exclusive to, classroom management, lesson planning, evaluating language levels at the beginning and end of the stay of the children, meeting parents and giving feedback and of course, teaching full days; my teaching day would even include private one-to-one lessons. I would often deal with situations that required being able to think innovatively, without guidance and under pressure so I have gained a considerable amount of confidence and self-discipline due to my work there and I have improved my time keeping and organisational skills.

I have also been privately tutoring children, from 11 to 14 years old, for over two years now, via Skype. So even if the distance seems too far - teaching via Skype is an option.

I tutored one of my students through her French GCSE and she gained an A*. I was always available to prepare her - even the day before her exams. She only ever felt confident to go into any of the modules (be it speaking or writing).

I really care for the children that I tutor and am proud to say I have been there to help them with all aspects of their schooling, from homework help, to exam preparations, extra work and even life lessons - I'm very personable, patient and overall positive and happy so am always willing to give advice and have really become a friend to my tutees. We've also worked on all subjects, everything from science, to history, to music, to teaching the time and additional mathematics help.

Please see below for feedback from previous families that have found me on this site:

------------------------------------

Bianca taught my daughter French all of last year. Her teaching methods were relaxed and fun, and our daughter's French improved dramatically in a short space of time. Equally importantly, we were totally comfortable with having Bianca in our house; I often went out, leaving her alone with our daughter, without a second thought.
Bianca is polite, respectful and trustworthy. Her teaching is fun and motivational, and our daughter is very fond of her.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bianca as a teacher and au pair.

-------------------------------------

Bianca has tutored my 3 children for over 3 years and her work with them has been invaluable. We lived in France for 7 years and when the children returned to the UK they found some subjects difficult, especially as one of them began high school.

Bianca has an incredible way of teaching that totally captures the child's attention and she engages and connects with them in a way that makes learning easy, practical and fun.

Bianca helped my children improve their grades and they passed all their subjects under her watch and in fact Bianca could help them in any subject they asked for help in.

My middle son was terrible at focusing and organising himself and Bianca was able to help with fun tactics to help home organise and to study. The projects he did with her were fantastic.

Bianca also coached my eldest to an A* in French GSCE a year early and she encouraged her to aim high.

Bianca is also a wonderful role model and my eldest aspires to be like her, she says she would like to go to Bath University to study languages like Bianca.

Bianca brings out the best in the children and overall she is one of the most sincere, loveliest helpful people I know. She is intelligent and entertaining and I wish her well! We miss her enormously!

Tutoring Approach:

I do it the right way, the way I would have wanted to have been taught. No unnecessary memorising. No difficult approaches. No complex babbling.

I won't just be setting you work, I will be working with you. All you need to do is let me know what exactly you want to learn. Even if your answer is 'Everything!', then we'll get down to it.

This is simple. So, let's do it!

Personal Description:
I am in my second year studying Medicine at the Imperial College London after finishing my A levels at a South London school. I have an excellent academic record with 7 A-stars and 3 As in my IGCSE's. I have also achieve the highest score on IGCSE mathematics.

I gained 7 As at AS level. I received an average of 97.8% across the 5 science subjects (math, further math, biology, chemistry and physics). I have also achieved Gold awards at the British Biology Olympiad , Senior Math Challenge and the International Chemistry Olympiad. I self taught myself Further Math modules during AS year; I learned FP1 and D1 last year and achieve 98% on both modules. I enjoy the challenge of maths so I self taught two more A2 modules namely FP2 and S3 and I got 100% and 93% respectively. My A level results were 4A* and 1A. I gained 600/600 in A level Maths, 97% in A level Further Maths, 96.7% in Chemistry, 96% in Physics and 92.7% in Biology overall.

I am originally from Malaysia and I am fluent in both Chinese and English, and I can tailor the lessons to focus on whatever students want to learn about. I am keen to tutor students on sciences, math and mandarin. My main academic interests are medical statistics and applied biotechnology. In addition, I play two instruments and enjoy playing tennis and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring secondary students English and Maths during my time in China. When I first moved to London, I started tutoring students on GCSE sciences. I volunteer to teach English students Mandarin during my time in school. Having been through the stress of exams, I have also held numerous study groups and sessions in order to aid pupils further. I also received an opportunity to tutor two girls on As level Maths and Chemistry for two months or so before the summer 2015 exams.

During the summer, I successfully received a full time job teaching A level Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Toefl English in a tutorial institution in Zhuhai, China for 3 weeks. It was a challenge for me teaching full time and preparing lessons every day to meet the demand of the students. In the end, it was a rewarding experience for me.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be enjoyed, I believe the best way to learn is by finding what you are learning interesting so I will aim to make whatever I teach interesting for the student. My approach is tailored to the needs and preferences of the student. Lessons can include:
- Recapping material covered in class
- Going through homework
- Focussing on difficult concepts
- Past exam questions & exam technique
I am willing to answer any questions they have as long as they send me an-email so that I can reply.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Modern Foreign Languages teacher with experience of teaching Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A Level at secondary school and tutoring English, French and Spanish privately.

I am a hard-working and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about teaching and modern foreign languages. Therefore, in addition to teaching French and Spanish in secondary schools, I have also started a language tuition business so that I can support people with their language learning and development of their linguistic skills.

Teaching Experience:

- During my teacher training, I worked at two secondary schools where I taught French and Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and I also spent a few days working in a primary school observing and assisting teachers.

- During my NQT year, I worked at a secondary school in Trowbridge where I taught Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and French to Key Stage 3.

- As part of my Spanish degree, I worked as an English Language Assistant in a school in Madrid for an academic year.

- I have worked part time as a tutor from the age of 16 teaching French, Spanish and English.

- I have also recently become an External Examiner for Edexcel (one of the main British exam boards) which has given me more insight into what examiners look for in successful candidates.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher as I believe that it is important to have a fun and positive atmosphere where my students can feel comfortable, gain confidence and also have a bit of fun.

Personal Description:
An outstanding Grammar High school Maths teacher, I teach Maths up to A-Levels and beyond and have been teaching for 10 years now.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher (QTS) registered with UK National College of Teaching and Leadership. I work in an outstandingly high achieving Grammar school near London.

So far I have tutored over 100 students on a 1-1 basis in the past 7 years alone. This is over 4000 hours of tutoring (40 weeks for each student a year X 100 students = 4000 hours)!

Moreover, I work as a Grammar school teacher and I am required to deliver outstanding lessons in accordance with the OFSTED Framework. Hence I have an accurate and in-depth knowledge of the most recent syllabus changes and the exam boards. That combined with my daily touch of solid Maths puts myself in a very strong position to very quickly and thoroughly assess the educational needs of a student and then build upon their strengths. My lessons are Laser sharp and objective oriented wherein I intend to achieve a very concrete goal at the end of each of my tutoring sessions.

With this immense experience, I have developed an approach which is very simple. I make the lessons fun and engaging. I try to promote interest in the subject so learning Maths becomes fun and an ongoing natural process. Students take this into the school environment and start seeing the results immediately. This reduces the burden from Maths and hence my students can focus on other subjects and achieve well holistically. (It's not about getting an A* just in Maths. I know that!!)

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching Pedagogy: The vast majority of One-2-One tutors simply 'turn-up-and-teach' without adequate preparation. Maths is mostly about 'understanding', and less about 'throw up facts'. A tutor gets ONE CHANCE to impart 'understanding' in a clear and coherent way. Not having prepared and risking an incomplete, confused or incoherent explanation instills confusion in the student, rather than confidence.

Regular feedback and homework: Most tutors either set no homework at all or thoughtlessly set exercises from a textbook containing inappropriate questions. My homework is specifically written to complement the lesson, containing some questions designed for routine practice and some questions designed to challenge the student; encouraging them to 'think' and to develop their logical capacity.

Exam Practice: I give students plenty of past paper practice - but only at the right time, once they have a deep understanding of all of the individual topics within the syllabus. Far too many tutors use exam papers to 'teach' from, which means they are setting papers when the student isn't ready: The upshot of that is the student's scores fluctuate wildly and their confidence is destroyed.
The lessons are invigorating, inspirational and cutting edge as I keep a very thorough hold on my subject.

  • 11+ (secondary) (35 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (35 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi,thanks a lot for visiting my personal profile!

I am an easy going people and got rich experience in private tutoring in various kinds of subjects and good at exam preparation.

My Degree: PhD and MSc. in Mathematics & Statistics at London School of Economics, UK.

I would like to be a lecturer at the University in the future, that`s the reason why I choose to do extra part time job as a tutor. I love teaching and also love to see your improvement under my guidance. Most importantly, I always get good feedback from students and their parents. Most students I tutored were over consecutive 3 years.

Maths Modules: SATs Different exam board on GCSE (all topics) and A-levels on C1 C2 C3 C4 M1 M2 M3 S1 S2 S3 D1 D2 FP1 FP2

Besides, I also have rich experience in tutoring "Chinese/Mandarin" for adult level, includes business purpose, personal interests, academic etc.

Trust me, I would never let you down! :)

Availability: Every Weekends
Weekdays need to arrange one week in advance.
Flexible during holiday

Usually, I will arrange a private study room in advance at LSE for the lessons.

If you do not like to be tutored at LSE Campus, I would like to travel to your place. But if your preferred location of the lesson gonna be far from LSE Campus or Central London, the tuition fees might be slight higher than my standard fees. But it`s negotiable :)

Tuition fees is also negotiable depends on the subjects,your level and total hours you need to learn each week.

Personal Description:
I hold a BA degree in History from Bangor University. I have worked within community organisations in Cambridge throughout my professional life, including the NHS, working almost exclusively with young adult clients on a one to one basis.

Teaching Experience:

Having originally trained with the TEFL Academy, I began working as a one to one English teacher in April 2015, initially on a part-time basis until December 2016. I have worked with over 50 adult students from around the world.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make my lessons as interactive and enjoyable as possible. There is no mandatory curriculum involved in my teaching, I focus entirely on your individual needs.

I have experience working with all ability levels so whether you are a beginner, an intermediate or just looking to refresh certain skills: I can help you.

All of my teaching materials are personally designed and arranging classes is easy and flexible to help busy working people.

I do not work in a fixed location, instead I meet across the many libraries and coffee shops based in the city centre. I only choose quiet and friendly locations with Wi-Fi availability because it is essential that lessons take place in relaxed and accessible locations without distraction.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
