Personal Description:
I am a teacher of exceptional qualifications and experience, acquired in both Bulgaria and the UK. My 5-year MA degree (English Philology, comprising of English and American Studies, Applied Linguistics and Theory and Practice of Translation, Grade 2:1) has provided me with a thorough and solid theoretical basis in all aspects of English. It includes a teaching qualification up to Level 7/8, validated as a full UK QTS by the GTC for England. I have also completed a second degree (with 1st class Hon.) and obtained a Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults.

I am qualified and experienced to teach pupils from primary school to university (post-graduate) level as following:

- 11+ EXTRANCE EXAM FOR GRAMMAR AND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL EXAM PREPARATION - READING COMPREHENSION, MATHEMATICS, VERBAL REASONING AND NON-VERBAL REASONING, ESSAY COMPOSITION AND LITERARY TEXT ANALYSIS - FROM AGE 7+
- primary school: English, Maths, basic literacy and numeracy skills - KS1 and 2 Maths and English
- secondary school: English Language, English Literature, GCSE English Language and Literature, KS3 and 4
- A-level English Language and Literature - KS 5
- ESOL - all levels
- Citizenship - Life in the UK test
- IELTS - all levels
- English for Academic Purposes and proofreading FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS (academic writing skills, essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - undergraduates and post-graduates
- proofreading of academic assignments (essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - foundation, undergraduates and post-graduates
- help with writing academic assignments (essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - foundation, undergraduates and post-graduates
- Bulgarian language - all levels
- Russian language - basic level

Teaching Experience:

I have been employed as a PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHER (ENGLISH), 11+ GRAMMAR SCHOOL EXAMS TUTOR AND ASSESSOR, MATHS TUTOR (PRIMARY SCHOOL, KS 1 AND 2), EAP, Business, IELTS, ESOL and English Language and Literature teacher and have worked at universities, colleges and schools across two countries. My experience teaching at four universities, and supporting children in schools and adults has helped me become an exceptionally versatile teacher.

I HAVE A VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING APPROACH, SHOWING UNDERSTANDING TO EACH STUDENT'S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND PREFERENCES AND TRY TO PERSONALISE LEARNING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. STUDENTS WARM TO ME QUICKLY AND ESTABLISH A GOOD RAPPORT FOR EFFECTIVE COOPERATION.

I have a proven record of tutoring students for a successful performance at the 11+ ENTRANCE EXAMINATION AND SUCCESSFUL ADMISSION AT GRAMMAR OR INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS.

All my primary school tutees have achieved their individual targets (whether improving basic literacy skills, or advancing in their level of reading or writing). The same success has been achieved in Mathematics.

My GCSE and A-level English pupils achieved 100% A-grades in their exams (both English Language and Literature).

I have tutored successfully for the Citizenship/Life in the UK test. I have the latest information of the test changes (from 2014). All my tutees have passed the Life in the UK test.

With university students I have expertise teaching the following academic skills:

structuring academic essays, implementing skills of cohesion and coherence and using the appropriate subject-related style
paraphrasing and summarising texts and applying correct grammar and suitable register in writing
using quotations and in-text citations and referencing them accordingly
delivering a presentation on a subject-specific topic, using Microsoft Powerpoint for effect
demonstrating understanding of key concepts and inferring the meaning of unfamiliar words from the context
developing speaking and seminar skills, useful for active participation in discussions and debates in the classroom and outside
interpreting numerical, statistical and financial data orally and in writing
demonstrating a clear understanding of what constitutes plagiarism and how to use the Harvard Referencing system for citation and the production of Reference Lists

At the academic skills pre-sessional courses at the University of Birmingham in 2012-2016 I gained even deeper experience supporting individual students with writing within very constrained time-limits. I guided all to success at their final assessments. I have had very positive feedback and comments of appreciation.

I have taught in various set-ups - whole class, pair work, group work, or one-to-one sessions. I am deeply interested in each student's individual learning needs and progress and one of my major strengths is differentiation. I sometimes prepare material at 4 levels of differentiation for a single class or small group. I use supportive strategies to boost students' confidence, at the same time challenging learners to achieve beyond their own expectations. I approach intense 1-to-1 sessions with the appropriate dynamics.

I am prepared to go beyond my 'job description' duties to help students with 'special needs'. I am interested in their individual circumstances and take them into account, where appropriate. I prepare resources to address their personal needs and interests. I review their progress and involve them in self-assessment towards autonomy of learning. I am familiar with the 'Assessment for Learning' policy and competent with implementing it widely.

I have worked successfully with students with dyslexia. At secondary school, one of my 'high-ability' dyslexic students scored an 'A' grade at her English GCSE, while another participated in a poetry competition. I have had success teaching students with autism and Asperger's as well.

I invest all of myself in my teaching. I am a highly trusted professional and have an exceptional rapport with my students. I am often quoted as a preferred tutor, who 'has the best way of explaining things' and 'is very patient, friendly and cheerful'. All students of mine - regardless whether at school, college or university - progressed by at least one level (even at short-term courses). A student with a debilitating illness on the BME, predicted to fail the course, not only passed it under my guidance, but achieved grades higher than his required level. In my 15-year teaching career I have never failed a student. I have achieved outstanding results at OFSTED observations. My latest annual lesson observation at BMETC was graded 'OUTSTANDING' and so was my performance at NAVITAS earlier this year. Another observation at BCU was unofficially deemed as 'the best on the course'. I have been invited to share exceptional ideas at training events and have also participated in numerous training activities at schools, colleges and universities. I often opt to peer-observe colleagues, to learn from their teaching styles.

Some more examples from my practice: a class of illiterate Yemeni housewives at BMETC, 2011, achieved a 100% pass at their ESOL exams, while 'advanced' international students at the BME, 2012 achieved some of the highest grades on the course. I have been successful dealing with pupils with behavioural problems at Harborne Hill School. Many reported an increasingly positive attitude to learning. I am a creative teacher and try to interest and enthuse students, so that they enjoy learning and celebrate their achievements.

Tutoring Approach:

First I negotiate the times and modes of tutoring with the parents of my potential pupil and agree on fees.
Then I organise a free initial meeting with the pupil and their parents, where I try to establish raport with the pupil. It is important, especially for children, to 'get a feel' of the new tutor and see if they can feel comfortable with her.
Then I try to access as much information as possible from the parents and the child about their progress at school and their attitude to school. If possible, I wish to see samples of the child's school work, or hear anything teachers have said/written about their progress.
During the first lesson I conduct an informal assessment of the pupil's skills - give them a piece of text to read, or free writing or short composition, or a selection of Maths problems to solve. When I get a clear picture of where my pupil stands with a certain skill, I create a short-term plan of work with them. I normally bring materials with me and do not ask parents to buy additional materials. If the parent wishes me to follow a certain self- help book, I am happy to oblige.
I update parents regularly of their child's progress - I try to do it after every lesson. I normally leave homework, designed to consolidate the material covered in the lesson, or develop their skills further. I wish parents to be involved as much as possible with helping or monitoring the completion of the homework.
I try to show my pupils as much respect as possible and affirm them as individuals. I acknowledge their birthdays, Christmas, or other family celebrations.
The parents can terminate the service at any time, with only one week notice.
I OFFER LESSONS VIA SKYPE AS WELL.

Testimonials

I am currently studying A level French and I am very pleased to be able to say that my French has improved more than I ever thought it would since starting tuition with Michel. In just over one month, I have improved by two whole grades, which has been evident from mock exam results in class at school. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Michel because I do not feel embarrassed to ask seemingly simple questions, which I feel I cannot ask in my class at school.
E. H. - Bromley

My daughter who is doing A level French was really struggling before we found Michel. He has really motivated her and has made lessons more interesting . She has 2 hour lessons but she is surprised how quick the time goes. I would highly recommend Michel. I can see he gets pleasure helping his pupils make progress. My daughter`s accent has also greatly improved with Michel`s help.
Mrs G - Croydon

I`ve just received my results and I`m very happy to tell you that I got an A for my French I-GCSE. Thank you for all your help because it really made a difference! - G - Bromley

Hi Michel,
Thank you for your help. I got A* in my French oral! - C. Sevenoaks School

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the sessions, they really helped me get a high grade for speaking and an overall A. Thank you so much - S - Orpington

I have enjoyed Michel`s teaching immensely. I would very much recommend Michel to other students- he`s really quite adaptable and has used some creative approaches to teaching which was really helpful for me.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher and academic here to help with Philosophy, Religious Studies and general academic skills.

I can help you to become better at studying, to have greater confidence in your subject knowledge, to achieve higher grades in exams, and hopefully to enjoy the process as well!

My background is in Theology & Religion (PhD) and Education (postdoctoral research), and I am a published academic author. I am keen to pass on a love for - as well as the best skills in - studying, writing and all things philosophical.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Religious Studies and Philosophy at several independent colleges, as well as to private tutees, and have taught Theology at undergraduate level. I also teach the violin to adult learners.

A number of my former A-level students have achieved A* grades and have gone on to study at universities including Oxford, Durham and Bristol. Others have undertaken re-sit examinations and increased their marks by up to four grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly and encouraging approach to tuition. My aim to develop my students' confidence in their own abilities, and to enable each student to achieve the highest grades they can.

Areas on which we can focus include subject knowledge, exam technique, academic writing, revision skills, and time management. If there are other areas of your studies on which you would like to work then please do just ask!

Personal Description:
I am an Engineer from an Elite Indian University called Jadavpur University, currently working in a Telecom company at Coventry.
I have been an above average student scoring 98% in Maths and 97% in Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) in ICSE which is Indian Equivalent of GCSE.
I have scored 99% in Maths and 92% in Physics in ICSE which is the exam that Indian students take at 18 years of age.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught students from Year 6 till Year 12. I teach almost all science subjects till Year 10, and Physics till Year 12.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to teach student the basic principles first and then help them apply the principles to general stuff they see around. This helps the students to learn while they have fun and helps them to solve their text book problems with more confidence.
Once a chapter is finished, I take comprehension tests before moving to the next chapter.
I can offer lessons both online and I can also come over to the student's place. But I need the students to be disciplined, obedient and punctual.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced language teacher and examiner. A native French speaker, I tutor students of all ages, from primary to undergraduates and adults wanting to learn French or Spanish from scratch or improve their existing competence.

Teaching Experience:

Since my PGCE, I have languages in secondary schools for 13 years; French to A level and Spanish to GCSE.

I am an examiner for one of the country's leading examination boards and mark examination papers. In the summer I conduct speaking tests in schools for the A level examinations.

I have taught French in primary schools and after-school clubs and tutor people wanting to learn languages for pleasure or to help them communicate more effectively on holiday.
I deliver courses for the MOD and tutor language undergraduates, students studying for the Common entrance exams and students who need support or wish to improve their grades at the GCSE, Alevel and DElf examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient and have a good sense of humour. I tailor my lessons to individual needs. My aim is to build confidence in speaking and using languages by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practise or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. I aim to make all my lessons fun and enjoyable, though with a clear focus on learning outcomes.

I was a statistician for 18 years before returning to teaching seven years ago.

Teaching Experience:

I teach maths one-to-one, in small groups and in whole classes at several secondary schools in Tyne and Wear as well as at further education colleges, covering all ages up to A level.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy explaining maths at all levels of ability and get real satisfaction from connecting at the student`s level. I believe I`m good at recognising what that level is and being able to adjust my explanations accordingly. I`m pretty relaxed and like my students to feel comfortable during our sessions. My approach is to identify areas of weakness, explain concepts from basics, then do some questions till confidence is achieved.

Personal Description:
I am an Economics graduate from Hanover University, Germany and teach part-time in a successful private college in the city of Bath. Since 2004 I have been working as a freelance tutor of Economics, as a translator (from English into German and vice versa), as a journalist and book author. Prior to that I worked as a technical support engineer for four years and as an office manager for six years. I live in Bath, am married and have two children. I love teaching, especially Economics, because it deals with some of the most fundamental problems of our society. To solve them we need to understand Economics.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2004 I have been tutoring AS and A2-level students in small groups and one-to-one, and university preparation courses in classes of up to 15 students. I have taught the AQA, Edexcel, and OCR syllabuses. Most of the individual students were re-sitting exams, most of whom improved their grade, often significantly.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all I ascertain any particular areas the student needs help with most urgently. I then review the basics with the student to make sure that these have been well understood. We then systematically work through the required subject matter, checking progress with the help of exam-style questions and past examination papers.

Personal Description:
I am a certified teacher of Italian, with a strong passion and enthusiasm for my work. I believe that languages are a powerful tool to access new information, meet different kinds of people and broaden our minds. I have always been passionate about foreign languages and now I'm committed to spreading the love for my first language to people from all over the world.

Teaching Experience:

I have over four years teaching experience. I began teaching Italian to primary and secondary school children. I helped them gain the necessary language skills to study school subjects in Italian and be at the same level as their peers.
In 2014, I started teaching Italian online to adults. I use Skype, Power Point presentations and a shared board to create an interactive learning environment for my students. Thanks to my lessons, one of my students was able to move to Italy and start a new job.
Additionally, I've collaborated with local language schools and taught English and Italian in the classroom to business people. After attending my courses, my students were able to pass their final exams and use their acquired foreign language in the workplace.

Tutoring Approach:

I go beyond the traditional grammar rules explanations and I tend focus on communication. I believe in the importance of interacting and in reaching fluency. No matter how many mistakes you make. Mistakes are just a part of the learning process: if you don't make them, it means you're not trying, and if you're not trying, you're not even learning.
My students' needs are at the core of my lessons. Every class will be tailored according to your abilities and skills and, of course, if you have any special request...feel free to ask. My purpose is to be here for you.

Personal Description:
Hello! If you're looking for intensive revision before an important exam, or long-term assistance throughout the academic year, then look no further. I graduated with first class honours in 2014 having studied Business Economics for 3 years at Nottingham Trent University. Since leaving University I have pursued a career in financial services, which has given me the perfect opportunity to apply many of the skills I developed throughout education to real-world situations. I have had a keen interest in maths and statistics since a young age, demonstrating my ability by achieving an A at GCSE in Maths and an A in Statistics. This was a contributing factor towards my study of economics given how the two subjects interlink, achieving a B at Economics at A level. All of these skills were brought together at University, with my degree heavily reliant on the use of statistics as well as algebra and other important maths concepts. I am keen to help you/your child achieve their maths goals, and I hope that I can use my use of maths in my every day work to show how important maths and economics skills are both academically and for the real world.

Teaching Experience:

Throughout my time at school, sixth form and university I was always keen to teach peers both as part of large groups in class and on an individual basis, something I enjoyed because it helped me to develop my own skills and also because of the reward of seeing someone else do well as a result of my help. This has included me teaching a fellow GCSE student at the time of my own studying, as well as more recently helping a colleague with her entrance exams for her PGCE teaching exams. I also completed a week of work experience at my local primary school, which was an opportunity for me to develop my coaching skills in the best environment.

Tutoring Approach:

Having personally varied my own learning techniques throughout education dependent on the subject and the learning environment, I understand that every individual learns in a different way; I will use the early stages of tutoring to gauge the needs and learning styles of the tutee, and alter my teaching to these needs. Whilst I am keen believer that each individual has their own learning style, I also believe it is important that everyone tries new styles to work out which is most effective for them. Personally I like the use of extensive notes when first learning to understand a concept or theory, and then more concise notes that can I can use to prompt myself later on. Finally, I think that encouraging someone to regularly sit previous exam papers can develop the skills in a more applied environment whilst also helping a student to be more relaxed when it comes to the real exam situation.

Personal Description:
I'm James, 26, and an MPhil/PhD candidate in English and Humanities at Birkbeck, University of London, with a thesis on the ethics of black radical, avant-guard and experimental poetry from selective poets.

I have a BA & MA in Creative Writing from the University of Greenwich. I received the Stephen Lawrence Poetry Prize and their Communication and Creative Arts Prize for Achievement for obtaining one the highest marks awarded to a creative writing student; and my final MA piece was published, in print, by the Berkeley Poetry Review (University of California, Berkeley) and nominated, by the BPR, for the Pushcart Poetry Prize.

Although my academic background is practice-based, my specialist areas of interest are associated with the philosophical, critical, and theoretical dynamics of the creative writing process, which is to say that the creative isn't subordinate to the reflective, but are mutual, and taken together form the grounds for rich exploration.

Teaching Experience:

I'm currently working in a primary school as an English Literacy Teaching Assistant, with a concentration of developing the reading & writing skills for KS1 and, as of September, KS2 pupils.

In the past, I have also assisted undergraduates, and selective postgraduate, with proofreading, editing, and critically evaluating their poetry.

Tutoring Approach:

My natural approach to tutoring is relaxed and calm, but engaging and stimulating, whereby the dialogue that is established, to contribute to the dissemination knowledge and abstract ideas, can be brought into greater focus. I usually look to help tutees form an aim that can be managed though stages so as to ensure that learning is refined to the best degree of expended effort, is not overwhelming, and, above all, interesting and valuable.

Personal Description:
PhD applicant in Philosophy of Religion (Cambridge), recently awarded a distinction for a masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics in Education at Heythrop College, University of London. Currently specialising in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics tuition for A level philosophy and religious studies students.

Teaching Experience:

Recently tutored a student for the Edexcel AS exam in Philosophy of Religion. Together we developed a 7 week study plan that addressed gaps in the student's knowledge in line with a realistic strategy for exam preparation. This involved tailoring resources, mainly handouts, to meet the student's needs on various topics. The student typically prepared for a session by reading a set of handouts, we would then talk through the content in session, setting up a written homework assignment on a question likely to come up in the exam, to be reviewed at the start of the next session. Sessions included guidance on how to write top level exam answers, tutoring the student on the assessment criteria for the exam specification and an approach to writing philosophical essays advocated by Dr Michael Lacewing, author of standard A level Philosophy textbooks and my lecturer at Heythrop College, as well as a sponsor of my PhD application.

Other experience
Various bits of teaching through training experiences and agency work, including teaching secondary RE from Year 7s through to Year 12s, and cover supervising, one-to-one tutoring and assistant teaching across all subjects at Key Stage 3. Trained in SAPERE's philosophical enquiry methodology, P4C (Philosophy for Children, Colleges & Communities) and as a voluntary P4C facilitator have run sessions on Ethics topics with A level Philosophy and Religious Studies students at sixth form colleges.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to work with students' own approaches but I have found that a good way to structure revision and monitor progress over many weeks is to use an Excel workbook, shared an updated by student and tutor, with a worksheet for each study week. Each worksheet includes boxed and highlighted sections containing guidance notes on the subject covered in that study week and on writing different sorts of exam answers, as well as space for students to complete homework assignments so that they are embedded in with these notes. Over the weeks the workbook is a useful reference point for tuition sessions and can become the main source of revision notes for the student, something that is really appreciated by those who need help to organise their own learning.

My PhD proposal is in the field of analytic philosophy, which endeavours to advance theories and arguments in the clearest and most precise way possible, with words and terms used in everyday language. This is the approach I aim to take to tutoring. I haven't always been taken with philosophy, having a background in media production and wealth management and a first degree in history, so I can also draw on quite a wide set of interests and experiences to give a little colour to my tutoring.
