Personal Description:
How did I become bilingual in English and French? It wasn't a miracle. If I can do it so can you.
I learned French in Lyon whilst I was teaching English as a foreign language. Your lessons with me are focused on real communication. I show you how I developed the skills of understanding and speaking the language so you can speak confidently too.
I've taught people from all sorts of backgrounds and am convinced that anyone can learn how to communicate in a foreign language. It's such a rewarding skill; great when you want to have a conversation, join in with the culture and just for the pure sense of achievement.
Speaking another language just feels really good.

Teaching Experience:

Over the last year, I have shown 50 people how to speak better French and English. That's nearly 1000 hours of teaching!

Language teaching experience
- French evening class to adults (2 years Secondary School, Essex)
- English as a foreign language to business executives, air traffic controllers and undergraduate university students (3 years International Language Trainers, Lyon)

Formats
- Skype lessons
- One-to-one private tutoring
- Group conversation classes
- Intensive crash courses

Complete beginners, people coming back to language learning after a long gap, and confident speakers who want to take their language skills to the next level

Tutoring Approach:

As your tutor, I wear many hats, I'm there to guide you through your learning, motivate you to keep moving towards your goals, make it easy for you to understand and give you lots of support for your own independent learning.
You will learn faster if you are open to exploring the language, prepared to take a few risks when speaking and are willing to engage with lots of different learning strategies that keep things interesting and challenging.
We have all proved that we have the skills and capacity to learn language, just by the fact we speak our own language. My approach is to tease out all the strategies and techniques that you already have for language learning, along with a few I've developed, and help you apply them to another language.
It's a fascinating journey with many benefits that go way beyond being able to conjugate verbs correctly, although of course grammar is important.

I travel to Epping, Harlow, North Weald, Bishop's Stortford, Great Dunmow, The Rodings, Saffron Walden and surrounding areas.
Skype across UK

Personal Description:
FIRST LESSON FREE - This is an opportunity for me to assess your level and expectations and for you to decide if you are happy with me and my teaching methods.

As a speaker of four languages I know what it feels like to be a student as well as a teacher, so I like to ensure my lessons are not boring but also not just fun and no learning development happens.

I have a purpose designed classroom in my house, with whiteboards etc and a wealth of teaching material, a real teaching environment encourages good learning.

Teaching Experience:

2001-2005 Qualified as a Mandarin teacher at the Taipei Langauge Insitute and taught people from the UK, USA, Japan and numerous other countries.

2006-date Having moved to the UK I have taught at BBC Worldwide, London Conversation Piece, Basingstoke Queen Mary College, as well as numerous one to one classes for adults and children of all levels from holiday conversations, academic like GCSE & A Levels and professional usage such as legal, museums etc.

In August 2015 I travelled to Beijing to undertake further teacher training at the Beijing Language & Culture University, as I feel it is important to not become complacent and look to learn new methods and techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student is different so whilst my all classes cover the basics, they all are developed to personally meet your requirements and expectations.
I use various teaching methods, such as role play, newspapers, television episodes, even a trip to Chinese restaurant as well as a variety of text books and mock tests.
I will explain the grammar and how culture effects the language.
I speak with the standard correct Chinese pronunciation and use both simplified and traditional characters and even classical.
It is important to me that you both enjoy the classes but also see your Chinese develop.
Naturally lessons will cover, talking, reading, writing, listening

Personal Description:
I am a Dedicated, resourceful and innovative Teacher with more than 3 yrs of teaching experience at University level & more than 3 years of tutoring in the UK.Teaching is my passion which you'll find out on meeting & its something which I consider a way of giving back to the society.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a Lecturer in Engineering Institute teaching relevant subjects for 3 years .

I have been tutoring in the UK for more than 3 years now & during this time have carved a niche among my students for being approachable & having a sound understanding of the subjects & helping them in all possible ways.

I am a very patient & child friendly person.

As a Tutor , I have helped students from Primary to GCSE level with Maths ,Science & English preparing for a competitive exam & excel in the subject. I try & make learning fun while the students learn for life.Students & parents who are dedicated to learning motivate me to do better.
I have made permanent & good relations with my clients with my innovative techniques & dedication.

I also undertake lessons during school time (10am-14:00pm) for homeschooled children & other students who might need help during this time.

I also undertake Hindi language lessons.Also,offering group lessons.
All lessons are conducted from my home.Can travel in Milton Keynes For small extra charge(subject to availability).

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring Approach
I feel that having a good foundation to any subject is the way to go thus this would usually where I begin. If a student has a good understanding of the basics in any subject, more complicated details will seem much easier; like building blocks. After this, a focus on the weaker areas would then be applied to reinforce the student's understanding.

To begin, I start with revision techniques, worksheets and make new, very detailed, class/revision notes with my students. After developing a solid understanding, I begin with exam questions . Every lesson I give them homework. Essentially, what I offer are school lessons that are more detailed and focused than what they receive in school. Through these methods, I am able to thoroughly assess a student's abilities, increase them and hopefully up their grades.

My innovative pedagogies and teaching style and teacher friendly approach makes the concepts easy and passion and love for teaching has made me popular among my students

Personal Description:
I began tutoring during my chemistry study, which I finished with a Master's of Science in Chemistry (first class degree) and a PhD in Biochemistry (first class degree). I have successfully tutored over seventy A-level students in twelve years and have helped graduate and undergraduate students at university. One of my pupils was a medicine student, who said after my lesson: "I did not know chemistry is so easy".
I am familiar with the special requirements of the GAMSAT exam and have expert knowledge in biochemistry, microbiology and molecular biology.
As a fifty year old German citizen, I have lived in England for thirteen years. Tutoring is my main profession now.

Teaching Experience:

Twelve years of experience as a Chemistry Tutor enable me to help students to accelerate their understanding of Chemistry and to archive their full potential. Based on a thorough assessment a tutoring plan is developed to fill in gaps and to build up a solid foundation of knowledge.

I have successfully tutored students for their A-level, university and GAMSAT exams and I am happy to provide references. I have been with a well known tutor agency for several years and I am fully CRB checked.

I have worked for 18 years in high profile labs in scientific research all over the world including Tübingen (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Paris (France), Atlanta (USA), Vancouver (Canada), Cambridge (UK) and Leicester (UK).
During this time I have taught undergraduate university students and have supervised Masters and PhD students. My scientific expertise includes Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular biology, Protein chemistry, Chemical Analytic and Genetic Engineering.

Testimonials:

"Thank you so much for your help this year. My understanding has improved immensely and my confidence has also greatly benefited. I can now enjoy chemistry without the confusion and stress, even the exams have become enjoyable!"
Gabrielle

"You are a really good teacher and explain things very well." Rakhi

"I like the way you teach. You do not spoon fed, but help me to find the solution on my own." Joe

"I can't thank you enough for the tuition you gave to me - it was invaluable." Lydia

"You have helped me a lot when it was really needed." Suhrud

"I wanted to thank you for your help and let you know that I got into my
first choice university" Amandeep

"I wouldn't have been able to get the A* without your help." Sanjeev

"I got my GAMSAT results the other day and scored an average of 63 (which is in the top 15% of the country)!! Thanks so much for your help" Roshan

Tutoring Approach:

Whenever I get a new client I begin with a thorough assessment: What kind of person is he or she, what basic knowledge is present and what are the main problem areas? Then a tutoring plan is suggested to reach the goal in a reasonable time frame.

My tutoring lessons are individually tailored to the needs of the student and designed to be entertaining but also challenging. The interview style of the session keeps the tutee focused and engaged. I incorporate examples of daily life and draw comparisons with situations from sports and hobbies. In my last assignment, we even did some small chemistry experiments (no worries parents - only harmless ones - the kitchen did not blow up!).

Besides improving their learning strategies, I ensure my students are well prepared for exams by practicing past papers and using official mark schemes. However my emphasis lies on building up a solid foundation of knowledge and the skills of applying it. I am familiar with the four main exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR A and B), but might add additional information, if this helps with the understanding. Homework of around 30 min is given between sessions to practice and deepen the new knowledge.

I give my best to make the teaching interesting and enjoyable, which motivates him or her to learn. I understand that at the beginning there might be resentment towards the subject. However there has to be a basic willingness to learn. If I do not feel the openness at least to try, I reserve myself the right to decline the assignment.

Nevertheless I have a lot of patience and enthusiasm, which let me usually get along very well with my students. I hope at the end of my tuition I can quote you saying "I did not know chemistry is so easy".

Additional information: travel costs up to 5 miles distance are included in my fess. For distances of 5 - 10 miles add £4, for 10 - 20 miles add £8 to the hourly charges. I do not tutor at my home, but also offer online tuition.

Personal Description:
I am a biological researcher at UCL with experience of teaching at various levels from early secondary to university standards. My career choice intersects my interest in the sciences and teaching as I am regularly required to mentor new employees. I have a calm demeanor and friendly attitude with a range of interests both academic and creative allowing me to approach and solve problems from various angles.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored at various levels from secondary school entrance exams up to and including university level mathematics and chemistry. These have been in the majority on a one-to-one basis and occasionally in small groups of two and three.

Tutoring Approach:

My usual approach starts with discussing the general areas with which the student requires help and proceeding to identify key problems that require focus to increase core understanding. Teaching would proceed with breaking down the problem and explaining the process step by step. Explanation can be particularly adapted to suit the style of learning that best aids the student.
Following comprehension, the core knowledge would be reinforced through example problems both set by myself and from exams to increase the student's confidence. Formatting of answers would be additionally discussed and practiced to maximize exam effectiveness.
Short, topical homework may occasionally be set to further reinforce learning and enable the student to self-identify further areas of weakness that can be discussed and remedied thus guiding in-depth tailored teaching.
Sessions can be adapted to focus on core knowledge or exam technique as per the student's requirements.
I am passionate about sciences and believe that anyone willing to learn will make progress once they have found their core confidence and learning styles, success breeds success.

Personal Description:
I'm a Brazilian freelance photographer and film-maker based in London. Specialized in making ethnographic videos and documentaries, I also film and photograph live events, including talks, workshops and performances. I have worked in the UK and internationally creating content for research agencies, charities, schools, universities, individuals and businesses.

I hold an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London. I also have ten years professional experience as an image-maker, stretching back to my time as a photojournalist for Jornal do Commércio, a regional newspaper in my hometown of Recife. My academic training and extensive practical experience allow me to work with understanding and sensitivity whilst representing people's habits, cultures and environments. I am attuned to capturing the details of people's everyday lives and the ways they communicate, eat, dance, work, pray, interact and shape their homes.

My approach to photography and film-making relies on building an empathetic, personal and respectful relationship with people, applying methods of anthropology, and documentary, alongside poetic imagery and engaging storytelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of tutoring and classroom assistance, and working with children, young people and adults in the UK and Brazil.

My previous experience includes:

Teaching Assistant: Video production for Anthropologists (May 2017)
Spectacle - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers and students on training Course.
- Helping students utilizing video cameras and sound equipment.
- Assisting students using video editing software.
- Assisting students doing practical video exercise in location.

Teaching Assistant: Film (Nov 2013 - Jul 2014)
Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School - London, UK.
- Assisting teachers with classes of young people aged between 9 and 19 years old.
- Providing classroom support during film and drama lessons.
- Assisting individuals and groups with workshop and classroom activities.

Teaching one-to-one classes (Jun 2012 - Jan 2013)
- Planning, preparing and teaching one-to-one Photography and Portuguese courses for young people and adults.
- Responsible for adapting existing material or designing new material to suit individual learning needs.
- Planning and running photographic workshops and day trips for students.
- Marking and providing formative feedback on work.

Teaching and Laboratory Assistant: Photography (Sept 2010 - Sept 2011)
Universidade Católica de Pernambuco - Recife, Brazil.

- Technical, teaching and laboratory assistant for undergraduate courses in Photography and Photojournalism.
- Introducing photographic and darkroom techniques to students.
- Classroom and teaching assistance.
- Responsibility for maintenance and organization of photographic studios and darkroom.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I like to combine theory and hands on practice encouraging people to become independent learners, creative and critical thinkers. I have an empathetic, relaxed and joyful approach to tutoring and like to develop a good relationship with people to ensure that they feel comfortable to learn and to feedback on lessons. I like to work in collaboration with people to tailor lessons according to their needs, interests and levels.

With years of experience practising image making and studding the subject, I believe that theory and practice go hand in hand. With photography and film I think it's important to develop our 'ways of seeing' both by looking at things that have been made and by studding the thinking and mechanics behind these medias. It is also important to reflect on our own practice to develop our abilities and discover our potential.

A hand on experience is key when learning how to photograph and film. It is by practising that we familiarize ourselves and learn how to handle confidently our instrument of work. It's also by practising that we expose ourselves and learn how to deal with the unforeseen events that confront us when we are photographing and filming - be it the instability of light, decisions regarding compositions, interaction with a diversity of people, a great range of emotions that are presented to us while we hold the camera, etc.

I can facilitate photography and film making from camera work to editing for children, young people and adults. Please do get in touch to discuss - I'm always happy to help!
