Personal Description:
As a school student, I was a confirmed hater of Science! I am still haunted by the drafty labs and memories of sitting in silence on wobbly stools taking notes from ancient text books and carrying out odd practicals with the ubiquitous Potato tuber. It wasn't until I started studying Science as an adult learner in an FE college, where I was taught by inspiring and enthusiastic lecturers, who illustrated important concepts with analogies, diagrams and genuinely interesting practicals, that I began to realise that science was relevant to me and was "my thing".

This experience has stayed with me and has given me a passion for making science exciting and largely the reason that I chose a career in personal tutoring.

I am a professional full-time private tutor. I have recently graduated with an MSc in Science (Medicinal Chemistry and science education studies). I have also graduated with a First class honours degree in Life Sciences (Open) and I have completed a Post-graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education, specialising in Science Education.

Teaching Experience:

I specialised in A level and GCSE tuition and I have extensive experience working with a wide range of students, from those who are struggling and need help understanding the key concepts to those who do well in science but need support to develop the exam technique that will get them the top grades.

I have tutored students working towards exams with all the major exam boards, including AQA (AS, A2 Biology and Chemistry, GCSE core science, GCSE Additional Science, GCSE Biology and Chemistry), OCR (AS, A2 Biology and Chemistry, Salter's Chemistry, 21st Century Science GCSE), WJEC (A level Biology), EDEXCEL (AS and A2 Biology and Chemistry, GCSE, IGCSE)


I also have much experience working with students entering for exams as external candidates and I can provide assistance in making arrangements for this.

In my professional life prior to tuition, I was employed as a company trainer in the catering industry, working with newly employed staff on an individual basis to help them develop the skills and knowledge relevant to their new positions and training existing staff to take on more senior roles. This gave me extensive experience of one-to-one tuition and creating individual training strategies.

Tutoring Approach:

When I begin tutoring a new student, I spend some time getting to know the individual and we begin by discussing their current feelings about Science and what they would like to get out of the tutorial sessions. I also carry out an assessment of the individual's learning style (sounds scary, but it's not, it's just a short quiz). By discovering how the individual learns best, I can structure the tutorials so that they are composed of activities that will be both effective and enjoyable. In all cases, I endeavor to make Science enjoyable and relevant to the individual student as possible and tailor the explanations to their particular interests.

As well as providing subject-specific tuition, I place particular emphasis on the development of study and exam skills. Where relevant, this includes teaching essay writing skills, how to revise, how to approach exams and specific scientific skills, such as data analysis and evaluation, which are often assessed in course work. I also offer tutorial sessions which focus just on study skills, for those who are comfortable with their subject knowledge but need extra support in these areas.

As well as traditional face to face sessions, I also offer fully online lessons using skype and an interactive whiteboard which allows me to interact with students in the same way as in a face-to-face lesson. If you are interested in online tuition but are not sure how it would work please contact me to discuss.

Personal Description:
I am an inspiring, self-motivating and dynamic teacher with extensive experience in teaching at the UK academies, selective schools and a number of top boarding schools. As a result, I have acquired specialized knowledge of UK and Chinese educational systems and a flexible approach to teaching which is most relevant to the demands of the post.

Similarly, my strong academic record indicates that I am well-qualified for the job. In particular, I am currently studying Mandarin Chinese PGCE course at Institute of Education, which leads the UK for education training. The course has provided me with in-depth methodology skills, highly suited to the UK framework for teaching Mandarin Chinese. As part of this training, I have undergone intense observations across a wide range of school placements. This has provided me with practical experience of developing schemes of work in line with the National Curriculum of Mandarin Chinese.

Furthermore, during my school placements training, I have found this experience immensely rewarding and have developed an approach to teaching which aims to challenge and engage young minds. I have developed skills in teaching critical thinking and learnt how to nurture innovation and original thought. I instill high expectations in pupils and encourage self-efficacy as a tool for enabling achievement. Similarly, given the academic criteria of my school placements, I am expected to teach from basic to Oxbridge level. I have also developed insight into the value of inspiring pupils' intrinsic motivation and meta-knowledge. This involves emphasizing the importance of knowing individual strengths in order to capitalize on them and individual difficulties so as to identify enabling strategies. In addition, by fostering these facets of self-awareness, I find that pupils are often able to self-regulate aspects of their learning to excellent effect.

I will bring energy and enthusiasm to the school's extra-curricular activities. For example, I could offer Movie Clubs screening Chinese movies and Culture Clubs sharing Chinese Calligraphy and Tea Ceremonies. I am particularly skilled at cooking traditional Chinese food, which could be integrated into the school's Mandarin days and Festival celebrations. I am interested in Chinese music, singing and drama. I believe that integrating singing and drama into the Mandarin department would be a motivating tool for developing oral skills in the target language.

Finally, I believe teaching is one of the few vocations in life that can make a significant difference to people's lives, enabling children and young people to build a promising future. I also find teaching to be a very rewarding career, I am particularly happy and proud each time my students make progress in their study or advocate positive behavior. I also enjoy the challenge of teaching and developing new ways to make my lessons interesting and stimulating to a wide range of students.

Teaching Experience:

I have intensive teaching English and Mandarin Chinese experience in both top China secondary schools and UK academies and selective schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I will be teaching according to the students' age and different learning styles accordingly.

Personal Description:
I came to London in 2005 and I live in Walthamstow,London. I have always liked Art and Foreign Languages. I am passionate about Art and Crafts, and I have discovered my enthusiasm for French language when I started tutoring French a few years back. I work in a secondary school teaching Art and French and my colleagues and students would describe me as friendly, approachable with a good sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Art and Design for four years prior to working as a learning support for 6 years. I have been working as a learning support, with Lead role in Literacy and I have worked as a Cover Supervisor for two years .I believe that teaching is not only about passing on the knowledge of a subject, it is also about connecting with the students to try and make them work to the best of their abilities. I have also tutored French in a private tutoring centre to students who have never learnt French before and within 2 and a half years, I have put them through their GCSE exams and they have got amazing results from A* - B. I have also been tutoring French at home for a few years and again my students came out with great results. I am fully aware of the curriculum and have experience in Writing, Speaking , Listening and the criteria for Controlled Assessment. References can be available on request.
I also run Art and Crafts workshop online and at home. I can teach a range of crafts such as stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking including various techniques. A sample of my crafts tutoring can be available on requests.
I am currently working as a full time Art and French teacher in a secondary school. With all the changes in the curriculum, it is fundamental that tutoring Art or French, are tailored to each individual to enable them to progress in each lesson so each pupil can reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my lesson plans according to each individual as I believe that every student's learning is different. It is important for me to be able to communicate with my students, to understand their needs and to plan an Individual Educational Plan (IEP)to accommodate the requirements of each pupil. Resources are provided to reinforce learner's knowledge and homework is set weekly. Tests are held regularly to assess student's progress. Furthermore, I believe that regular contact with parents help ensure that student's targets are met accordingly.
PS: I have a CRB as I work in a Mainstream Secondary School. Reference from my current school or previous school can be available on request.

LEARNING ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE

Specialized in Skype lessons.
Conversation classes in Stotfold (SG5 4) on Mondays at 8:30 pm.
Survival Italian courses for tourist purposes.
GCSE and A-level teaching. University tutoring.

My name is Tiziana, I am a native Italian speaker and I was born and grow up in Grosseto (south of Tuscany). I am married to a university lecturer, with whom I have 2 children. I`ve been living in England for 5 years and now I live in Stotfold (Hitchin).
I studied at the University of Sienna (Italy) where I obtained my Master Degree in Law and qualifications to teach Italian to foreigners.
​In Italy I worked as a solicitor/barrister at first and then for ten years as Chief Police Officer.
Over the last 10 years, I have developed a passion for teaching Italian to foreigners. I already ran Italian language classes while in my native country, and when I came to England, I started to give Italian lessons on a one to one basis then and I run Italian courses in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

If you would like to read my Curriculum Vitae and a list of references in United Kingdom, please feel free to ask.

THE PROPER ITALIAN - MY ITALIAN BACKGROUND​

In Italy we say "the pure Italian is the Tuscan Italian in a Roman mouth".
Italy is composed by a lot of regions and every region speaks a different Italian, with a different accent. North and South Italy speak a very strong dialect. Open or closed pronunciation of the vowels "O" and "E" and doubling consonants "R" and "T" are the most crucial issues.
Italian tutor's accent reflects on the students speaking. I can recognize previews teacher origin of my students only listening to them speaking. I spend a lot of time with my students adjusting their pronunciation.
I grew up in the south of Tuscany and I didn't have to make any effort to get rid of my accent just because I have never had one. Pay attention when you choose your Italian tutor abroad. If you want to learn a proper Italian go with one coming from Tuscany or Rome.

MY STUDENTS BUNCH

I have to deal with many different students every week. Most of my students are coming once a week. Some of them come twice.​ Almost all my students are adult learners.
Half of my students are beginners and they literally start with no Italian at all. The other half have an intermediate level and they want to improve their skills in speaking and grammar.
In my experience, after 1 year of lessons (coming once per week) a beginner advance to the intermediate level and is able to speak and understand most common Italian conversations. ​
My Italian lessons are tailored to students ability, skills and purpose.
I teach all levels of Italian and my teaching experience is quite varied and rich.
I have mature students registered for Master Degrees in Italy, businessmen interested in improving their business Italian, teenagers who are doing A-levels in Italian, children from families of Italian origin who don`t speak Italian at home and tourist who want to learn a Survival Italian to hold some common conversations during their holidays in Italy.

YOUR LESSON IS TAILORED ON YOU
Every Italian lesson is customized on student progress, purpose and needs. I offer a high level of flexibility in terms of timing as ​I am available to give out lessons every day from 8 am to 11 pm weekends included. If you can't have your lesson in the same day every week I can arrange your lessons time by time at your convenience.
Students receive all the stuff they need to study Italian (grammar, exercises, practice) in advance and there is a hard job behind that. If you study Italian with me you don't spend a penny to buy books, audio-videos or other stuff.

Teaching Experience:

I offer different kind of services:

- Italian "one to one" tuition for beginners, intermediate and advance levels
- Survival Italian courses for tourists
- Italian conversation class for intermediate level every Monday at 8:30 pm in Stotfold (hitchin)
- Italian lessons via Skype for distant students
- Italian courses for schools, companies, organizations, pr and press offices
- GCSE and A-level teaching
- University tutoring

I am successfully running an Italian conversation class for intermediate every Monday night 8:30 - 9:30 pm in stotfold (hitchin) for a very affordable price ( 5 per class).

I offer a first free meeting to all the students, before starting any lesson, in order to assess their level of proficiency as a speaker of italian and understand their purposes in attending an italian course.

Tutoring Approach:

ITALIAN TUITION ONE-TO-ONE

I teach Italian by developing written materials according to an individual learner`s needs.
I use materials of different types in order to make each lesson interesting and beneficial, including videos from Italian websites, audio tracks, dictations and games.
Each lesson is usually divided into two sections: the first one is dedicated to study some new grammar and the rest of the lesson is focused on speaking, listening and comprehension exercises to help the student`s proficiency improving day by day.
An important component of my lesson is the "free conversation", where the students tells me what they have done in the last few days. Very useful are also my "driven conversations", based on newspapers articles or other writings, on different topics.
This way my students have the opportunity to learn about Italian culture, politics, food, traditions, history etc.
I always give all my students homework to be done independently.

LESSONS PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS

I charge 18 per 1 hour lesson or 25 per 90 minutes lesson at my house.
I offer discounts for families and groups.
I prefer to be paid monthly in advance but if you struggle to pay monthly I can accept payment lesson by lesson.
If you can't attend a class, please advice 24 hours in advance and I will offer you to re-arrange your lesson for another day.
If you miss the lesson and you haven't canceled it in advance, you will be asked to pay for the missed lesson.
You can pay my lessons cash, via cheque, pay-pal or bank transfer.​ ​If you need a receipt for your payment, feel free to ask.
For lessons at your house I will ask you a petrol refund.

​CONVERSATION CLASS

An "Italian conversation class" is a valuable opportunity for Italian students to practice their spoken Italian within an informal, relaxing environment, in front of a cup of tea.
Each conversation class is organized with students who possess the same level of Italian, so that no student would feel embarrassed and the conversation can be useful to all.
The purpose of the conversation classes is to connect people who are studying or who would like to begin the study of Italian and want to practice and improve their skills acquired so far.
Each class is developed around a specific subject, easy to be addressed within a conversation: events, personal experiences, or topics, such as sports, cinema, history, hobbies, celebrations, holiday, etc..
We start from an Italian newspaper article or we comment texts about Italian history, art, traditions, culture, society and even food receipts. We watch Italian videos, we prepare together some Italian recipes and we play together some Italian table games which help everyone to practice Italian speaking. Sometimes we practice grammar trough some "grammar games" which turn the Conversation Class into a shared grammar lesson. I moderate the discussions and assures that every student takes part in the talking.
Conversation class takes place every Monday at 8:30 pm and it lasts for 1 hour.
The class is open to all. Most of the people coming to the class are my one-to-one students but some of them attend only the conversation class. You are free to attend the class whenever you want and you will be asked to pay 5,00 per class.

SURVIVAL ITALIAN COURSES FOR TOURISTS

Are you worried about your language skill during your planned holiday in Italy and you are thinking to learn the most common Italian phrases in order to express yourself and understand most important conversations? ​
​Unfortunately in Italy not so many people speak English and everything you will come across is written in Italian.
We have a different shopping and public service timing, different public transport rules, different emergency and hospital services and also different habits in hotels and restaurants, which can cause you some distress if you pump into a urgent situation and you are not confident with it.
​I offer some "SURVIVAL ITALIAN COURSES" for tourists.
They are specific courses, designed for touristic purpose. In a few weeks lessons you will be learning about dining out, shopping, renting a car, manage with trips and tickets without be fussed about the nightmare of the Italian grammar.
They are the only courses I set up completely in English, in order to speed up your Italian learning.
​These mini-courses are designed specifically for people who are planning a short trip to Italy and just need to learn some basic survival phrases in the minimum possible time.
2 different survival courses are available for you.
- 20 lessons survival course for 300
- 10 lessons survival course for 150
You can choose your timing lessons, having lesson once a week, twice a week or 3 times per week. Every lesson lasts 1 hour. I apply interesting discounts if you book one of the "Survival Italian Courses for tourist" together with your friend and special packet is available for you and your family!

ITALIAN LESSONS VIA SKYPE

Have you ever tried the enjoyable experience to have your lessons from home?​
​Maybe you would like to learn a survival Italian in order to hold some common conversation in your next planned holiday in Italy. Maybe you are able to understand some Italian but you don't feel confident in speaking and you would need to have some conversation classes with a native, experienced teacher. ​Maybe you work with Italian companies and you need to improve your business Italian.
​What ever is your purpose for learning Italian, you can have your lesson comfortably from home, saving you money for petrol and time driving.
​​Where ever you live, doesn't matter how far from me, you can have your lessons via Skype.
I have some distant students having lessons via Skype and they find this way of learning easy, cheap and comfortable, avoiding the stress of traveling and any petrol expenses.
You only need to have a computer, headphone and microphone and you are ready to start.
I offer a first free"Skype meeting" to the students, before starting lessons, in order to assess their level of proficiency as a speaker of Italian and understand their purposes in attending an Italian course.
I will prepare your lesson in advance (tailored on your purposes, needs and skills) and I will send you the lesson via email before the arranged lesson in order to allow you to print off all the stuff.
During the lesson you will follow my writing seeing me on your computer and listening to my voice. So, you will write grammar exercises, you will read texts and you will practice your speaking with conversation exercises exactly like in a normal face-to-face lesson. I often share my computer screen with you in order to watch some videos together and listen to some audio tracks.
In other words, Italian lessons via Skype are exactly the same lessons I have with students coming to my house.
My students really enjoy this way of learning and I am very pleased to teach Italian this way.

Personal Description:
A professional and experienced tutor, I've studied maths and physics at degree level. I've considerable experience of teaching in colleges, summer schools, within companies and in one-to-one sessions, with students of all ages and abilities. In addition to this, I spent over a decade delivery training to corporate professionals. I now specialise in maths intervention at primary level.

Teaching Experience:

I've worked with students of all ages from 5 to 75 and across a variety of subjects and levels. What I've enjoyed most is seeing the progress all my students have made, but particularly those with learning challenges - whether it's to do with subject knowledge, concentration or behaviour. I've found that infinite patience is often the answer!

Tutoring Approach:

Absolutely key to tutoring is flexibility and adaptability. Everybody is different and learns in different ways. Each session starts out with specific topics and goals in mind, but these can - and often do - change as the session progresses and other priorities come to light. My challenge is to find a way to achieve those goals that will suit the student, taking into account what they already know, and how they best absorb and retain new information.

And finally, although I'm not there to become the student's friend, it's nevertheless essential that I build a rapport with them quickly to foster a supportive yet friendly learning environment. This helps ensures the sessions are as productive as possible.

Personal Description:
I run my own business specialising in the tutoring of French and Spanish to all ages as a fully-qualified, experienced secondary teacher. I can travel to my students so lessons are held in the comfort of your own home, however, I also tutor online via SKYPE (not available for GCSE students). I benefit from in-depth knowledge of exam boards and their requirements for GCSE. I have been learning and speaking different languages for a very long time. I have lived in, taught in and regularly visited a variety of French and Spanish speaking countries. I believe in languages for all as a bridge to other worlds and cultures. I am enthusiastic and creative in my approach and aim to get you speaking as quickly as possible.

Teaching Experience:

I taught English as a foreign language for 3 years in Quebec, Spain and Prague. I have tutored in the past to earn some extra money (French, Spanish and Phonics) I obtained my secondary pgce in 2009 and taught French and Spanish in two outstanding schools (Ofsted rating) until leaving teaching in 2015 to start my own business which is now well-established.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a creative and enthusiastic tutor who focuses on progress, not perfection. I aim to get you using the language as much as possible. I always ask your motivation for wanting to learn the language because that is what will determine how quickly you progress.

Personal Description:
I completed my undergraduate studies (English Language and Literature) in Greece, and my Masters studies in London. I have been passionate about the English language since I was very young, and was awarded the Cambridge University Certificate of Proficiency in English at age 15. When it comes to Language Teaching, I consider my exceptional level of English, my teaching skills, acquired during my Bachelor studies, as well as my experience of eight years of teaching to be my greatest assets. Offering private lessons of Greek and EFL in London and online. All ages and levels welcome. Flexible timetable.

Teaching Experience:

8 years of teaching experience in Greece and the UK, privately and in schools, all levels of English and Greek, including English Literature and IELTS preparation. I have worked both with children and adults, especially second generation Greeks and Cypriots.

Tutoring Approach:

Every lesson is tailored to the needs of the student. The use of specific handbooks is determined by each client's desires and needs. Extra material provided by the teacher. To support, encourage and help the student achieve his or her goals has always been my number one objective when teaching.

Personal Description:
Hello I'm Georgia and I'm a year 12 student. I take English Lit, History and Psychology A-levels as well as the EPQ where I will be creating a short film for my project. I love sharing my passion with those around me and would love to have the opportunity to help others love the subjects I do, especially English, History and Media based. I'm very sociable and love making people enjoy what I am passionate about. I'm friendly and can relate to lots of people around me who are undergoing stress with SATs and GCSEs and can turn it into productivity and a happy time. I can be that person who can lend an extra hand.

Teaching Experience:

I've mentored several younger children as a senior student at Alderman White School, Nottingham with English, as I have an A* in my English Lit GCSE that I took a year early in year 10. I've also took every opportunity to help out with teaching others, especially students who join late to my courses and I manage to catch them up and prepare them for mocks to come. As well as this, throughout my GCSE's, I created plenty of advice sheets for my classes in History and English. I have a passion for English, I love reading and everything about it and would love to share my love for it with others!

Tutoring Approach:

I love the idea that I and many other people who are interested so much in a subject that they are willing to put themselves out there to share their enjoyment and intellect with others, casually or academically. It's a good feeling when you can help someone when you have the ability to do so - so why not?

Personal Description:
I graduated with an upper 2:1 in English Literature and Journalism in 2012. As well as receiving a scholarship and bursary to attend this university, I was awarded the subject prize for journalism upon graduation. Hopefully, this goes some way to demonstrating both my strong work ethic and my aptitude for academia.

In the years since then, I have travelled extensively. As well as living in London, Brighton and Melbourne, I have explored South-East Asia and even taught English to local children in Laos. Now I've found my feet back in my hometown, and am currently working as a freelance copywriter creating all manner of marketing materials written to various client briefs. This means my schedule is fully flexible. I would love to spend a few spare hours a week tutoring, as I think it would be both a meaningful and a rewarding way to supplement my income.

Teaching Experience:

Aside from a stint volunteering in Laos teaching English to local schoolchildren, I have experience proofreading essays at various academic levels. This stems from my five-year career as a freelance copywriter. I am confident with my writing ability, as well as in my grasp of grammar and language. I feel well-placed to aid those who are perhaps not so confident in these areas.

I am also very widely read. An appreciation for context is fundamental for pushing literature grades up to those higher tiers.

Aside from this, I have experience on a one-to-one basis teaching piano lessons. I would certainly apply similar interpersonal skills to tutoring in English. I am patient, friendly, and above all else passionate about English literature and language.

Tutoring Approach:

Certainly, when preparing for English exams, a thorough understanding of the assessment objectives (AOs) is imperative to earn a higher grade. For an English literature exam, this would mean we would analyse a range of key literary critical concepts. We would also get to grips with how to structure an argument, as well as looking at writing techniques, context, and expression. As for English language, we would have a thorough look at various linguistic methods and terminology, including clause structure, tenses, and other key parts of speech.

I also encourage homework! The pressures of writing an essay under exam conditions are tremendous, particularly if a pupil is not prepared. In preparation for an English Literature A Level exam, I would recommend one essay a week under timed conditions, which I would then grade. It's challenging, but it is worth the work.

As for my teaching style, I find enthusiasm is often highly contagious. Whether it's a seemingly dry bit of Shakespeare or an enigmatic Romanticist poem, we'll work together to find ways to demystify the language and even make it enjoyable.

Apostrophe angst? Sentence structure struggles? I can also aid you with grammar, punctuation, writing techniques and other essential writing or language skills.

Personal Description:
I am 30 years old and recently moved to Leicester city, UK.
I am reliable and kind with great sence of organization and attention to detail.
Diligence and consistency was always important to me so I require the same from others.
I have a Proficiency certification on English language from Michigan University and a diploma on Applied Foreign Languages on Commerce and Administration from Epirus Technological and Educational Institute.
Moreover I have been taught commercial and administrative terms on English language, plus specific grammar and vocabulary issues on Greek language on Epirus Technological and Educational Institute.
To sum up, I have a good level on teaching fields I chose on the previous part, certified by Univeristy studies.
Finally I would like to mention that Greek is my mother tongue and have studied it for about 13 years and speak since I was born.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience on English language is one year private lessons (2014) on A2 level student.
About Greek language I have not any professional experience but as it is my mother tongue I am able to teach it through my studies and personal experience.
About History and IT teaching I have the appropriate knowledge through my certified studies and personal awarness.

Tutoring Approach:

My way of approaching to Tutoring is first of all the continuous information and reffered teaching stuff.
I believe that studying is not just an obligation for the student. Tutor has to be prepared and informed even for the most less significant detail.

About the student, I strongly believe that patience and reward can create miracles!
Even if the student is difficult, the Tutor has to find the appropriate way to approach him/her and give the right reason for interest.
