Personal Description:
Hi there, welcome to my page. Please take a few minutes to read the info to see if I'm the right choice for you.
I work full time as an IT Manager for a global firm where I have been working for 17 years. Before that I worked for British Steel, Babcock Water Engineering and Siemens Business Services in various IT support roles.

My teaching experience has been gained from seven years of part time lecturing/tutoring at the Rugby College, Tile Hill College, and Coventry University. I've had thankyou letters from students commending me on my teaching style. I am proud to say that people like the way I teach. However, I no longer teach for these establishments due to the time commitment required beyond the classroom but I wish to continue teaching in a more informal manner.

Teaching Experience:

I have 7 years teaching experience at the following establishments. Rugby College, Tile Hill College, and Coventry University teaching short courses in Web Design (HTML, Flash, Dreamweaver and Frontpage), Microsoft Office (including databases). In addition, I've delivered several informal evening and weekend sessions (via UK Tutors).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is usually informal but with a defined structure and I will provide bespoke notes to assist with the learning process.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaking qualified tutor with more than 10 years' language training experience. I worked for the University and secondary schools and I have been involved in one-to-one tuition for well over ten years. Furthermore, I have first hand experience of running businesses, which helps me better understand the needs and requirements of my business clients.

I have authored a Russian language textbook for Elementary and Pre-Intermediate levels - "The Story Sensation: for learners of the Russian language (and not only for Guadeloupians!)", available on Amazon, at Foyles and other major book-stores (you can check readers' reviews on Amazon).

I offer a 10% discount for students, seniors, UCL staff and alumni, members of the Vegetarian Society.

Teaching Experience:

More than 10 years' experience of private tuition of foreign languages. I used to work for the University and secondary schools and I have been involved in one-to-one tuition for a number of years.

Two other students (University of Westminster and University College London) have just finished both their course with me and their University course.

Russian course for Complete Beginners starts on 24th April (Wednesday) 7-9pm. Eight weeks' course in a mini-group of up to five people. The price is 259. Discounts for students, over 65s and members of The Vegetarian Society.

Tutoring Approach:

I can be of use for both children and adults and offer a number of courses, including Business Russian, conversational classes, assistance with grammar. ON-LINE language classes are now available.

My associates can also help you with English/French/Chinese/Italian to Russian translation and interpreting.

My recent students' testimonials say:

I've been learning Russian for over two years now and I've tried out a number of different Russian teachers from different companies. I can say that, without a doubt, Ignaty Dyakov has been by far the most outstanding teacher. His lessons are professional and extremely fun at the same time thanks to his friendly nature and good sense of humour. Most importantly - for me at least - he will immediately hone in on any problems you have and help you solve them (often without you even realising!). Ignaty is knowledgeable and very well informed about Russian culture; the Russian I have learned with Ignaty has always been accompanied by interesting cultural insights. Finally, I am always surprised at how impeccably punctual Ignaty is given the horrors of the London transport system!
- Richard P.

Ignaty is an excellent tutor of Russian language with very professional approach. He makes every lesson very interesting, bringing his sense of humour and outlook on the topics discussed in conversations. On a personal level I have found Ignaty is very diligent, reliable, willing to help and assist with founding out any information related to learning Russian language or exploring the Russian culture, art or ways of living. Ignaty has been an absolute pleasure to deal with right from my initial email to discuss my lessons till current date and I have no hesitation in recommending him to any individual or company who is interested in learning Russian language.
- Martina

I have been having private Russian Tuition from Ignaty for a period of 4 months during which I received outstanding education from a highly qualified, intelligent and pleasant individual. The lessons were result focussed, fun and interesting. Besides learning the language itself, I also learned a lot about the actual Russian culture. I can highly recommend these language courses to anyone who requires to be conversational in the Russian language in a short period of time.
-Peter

Taking this course with Ignaty has provided me with excellent grounding in the language and has been a highlight of the last couple of months. He has the patience of a saint (!) and is exceptionally knowledgeable. It's incredibly helpful that Ignaty has such extensive multi-lingual capabilities. His enthusiasm and knowledge has inspired me to explore the Russian culture further to the extent that my next holiday is being spent in St Petersburg. Thanks Ignaty!

Personal Description:
My name is Chris and I specialise in preparing students for both the 11+ entrance exams and A-level chemistry exams. Until January 2011, I was a Science Teacher at Plymstock School in Plymouth where I had been the Head of Chemistry for 10 years. Previously I had worked at Kelly College Independent School as a Chemistry Teacher and the Head of Lower School Science. Since January 2011, I have been self employed as both a Professional Tutor and also a Professional Drummer! I love both aspects of my self-employment and look forward to helping many more students achieve exam success.

Teaching Experience:

Chris has been teaching and tutoring A-level chemistry since 1994 and as an ex-Head of Chemistry who has worked in both state schools and private schools, he has helped countless students achieve the high grades they often need for university entrance. Many of my ex-students have gone on to vet school, medical school and Ox-bridge.

Chris has also been teaching Key Stage 3 since 1994 and has a good understanding of the level of written work and mathmatical ability expected of the most able Year 7 students when they begin Secondary School. He has helped countless students to achieve their potential throughout Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and earlier in his career he was employed as Head of Lower School Science at Kelly College Independent School in Tavistock, Devon.

Chris has a boy and a girl who have both been through the 11+ process and so is well aware of the stresses and benefits that all families are likely to experience, if they are to apply to a selective school.

Chris has an up to date fully enhanced CRB check and also public liability insurance.
You can also find him on the internet listed with various other agencies.

Grammar school education is really rewarding for able students and I hope to get the
chance to show you what the schools are looking for.

Tutoring Approach:

CHEMISTRY
I use boardworks PowerPoints to aid understanding but try to focus the learning around past paper questions and answers as much as possible.
I have handwritten answers to AQA, OCR-A and OCR-Salters past papers which are scanned in to the computer for projection onto a smart board.
28 is the 1:1 rate but evening sessions are likely to be small tutorials of a maximum of 4 students in the same year following the same course at a cost of 24 per student.
1:1 sessions are available during the day. Day rates are
45 mins 21 individual / 18 joint session
60 mins 28 individual / 24 joint session
90 mins 42 individual / 36 joint session
120 mins 56 individual / 48 joint session

Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer

ELEVEN PLUS
For 11+, I teach collaboratively with my neighbour Becky, also listed on UK Tutors. We jointly teach small groups with class sizes limited to a maximum of ten students. Students in a small group support each other and work together with a shared purpose and confidence.
Weekly 60 minute sessions at 17.50, run from September until the end of February. These are followed by 75 minute sessions at 20 which run from March to the September exams. Payment is monthly in advance, preferably by bank transfer.

Becky is a knowledgeable Primary School teacher with experience across the primary age range. She has a particular interest in enabling children to reach their full potential, using interesting teaching strategies and by recognising various learning styles. She obtained her BEd Honours degree in Primary Teaching as a mature student and not only achieved a first class degree, but completed each of her placements as an 'Outstanding' teacher. Becky has a fully enhanced CRB and is trained in the Safeguarding of Children. She has also ensured that she has kept up to date through continued professional development.
Becky is married with two daughters who have both passed the 11 plus exams.

Personal Description:
I very much enjoy teaching science, particularly chemistry and physics. I would like to inspire more young people to go on to study science at university and to use it in their future careers. Apart from teaching I enjoy cycling, singing, dancing and playing the tenor recorder!

Teaching Experience:

I have seventeen years teaching experience in secondary schools as a science and chemistry teacher. I have taught chemistry and physics to A-level standard and biology to GCSE standard. I would regard myself as a chemistry specialist.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to find out the particular learning needs of each pupil and to make sure that their understanding is as complete as possible. It is important to me that the pupil has an enjoyable and fulfilling time during the tutorial. Where he or she shows an interest, I enjoy open discussions that can extend learning into any area of biology, chemistry or physics. I enjoy explaining the underlying mathematical theory that underpin scientific principles.

Personal Description:
I'm an extremely strong mathematician, scoring top grades through school (including scoring 300/300 in my AS Level Further Maths), and went on to a heavily maths-based degree in Civil Engineering with Management. I'm a GCSE Maths Examiner, so I know exactly what is required to get your target grade.

Aside from teaching Maths, I've had a wide range of experiences - I've helped set up an community project in my friend's village in Tanzania and have taught some of our sponsored students out there.

I've just moved back to Exmouth from London so I have lots of availability for tutoring as I fill my books back up!

Teaching Experience:

* Teaching and working with young people as a volunteer or professionally since 2004.

* Qualified as a Maths teacher in 2006, and taught in numerous secondary schools, ranging from very challenging schools through to a high performing grammar school and a private school (including teaching IGCSE as well as normal GCSE).

* Have taught the full ability range from low ability Year 7 through to A Level Further Maths.

* GCSE Maths Examiner since March 2012. Primary School SATS Marker since 2016.

* Tutoring 9-18 year olds since April 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm keen to help pupils understand how maths works, and not simply learn a standard set of instructions to follow to reach the "right" answer.

With the new changes to Maths GCSE, having a good understanding is more important than ever - students simply cannot get by on rote-learning the method alone any more. Students need to be able to explain their answer clearly, and I make sure I incorporate this into my lessons.

Of course, approach will vary substantially depending on the student.

Students who are very close to their exams will need more focus on how to get the best result.

With younger students there will be more opportunity to focus on their understanding, and exploring how Maths works. I try to avoid simply teaching "How To Get The Right Answer To This Particular Type Of Exam Question", which might get them through tests in the short term, but is rather less helpful to them in the long term.

As a tutor I'd be choosing the most appropriate approach for the student.

Although I specialise in Maths, I am more than comfortable with science, and can also help students up to secondary school level in this subject. I will also do English with Maths at primary level.

GROUP DISCOUNTS:
* 5 discount per student if working in a pair.
* 10 discount per student in groups of 3 or more.

I can offer face-to-face tuition in the Leeds-Bradford and central Wakefield areas of West Yorkshire. But my availability can easily change. I prefer not to teach on weekday mornings.

To save time in making appointments and responding to inquiries will students and their parents/guardians please disclose their availability when they first contact me. Doing this does speed things up.

Will prospective students or their parents/guardians please DISCLOSE DETAILS OF THEIR AVAILABILITY when first contacting me. Doing this can greatly speed-up my response to inquiries and the making of arrangements.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor since October 1990 and have experience of teaching privately in people's homes, in Further Education Colleges, Tuition Centres, Community groups like family History Societies and (since November 2005) for the Workers Education Association. This work has bought me into contact with people from a wide diversity of ethnic and social backgrounds. I have also done live performance poetry and am a published poet. I have participated in the Headingley and Ilkley Literary Festivals. I can also offer online tutoring.

I also have a broad cultural experience based on visits to such countries as France, Belgium, Slovenia, Ireland, Spain, Morocco, Italy and Turkey. I am especially familiar with different aspects of European and Asian Culture.

Tutoring Approach:

As a Tutor I prefer to: -
Draw upon a wide range of knowledge, skills and experience
Relate to students from diverse cultural and social backgrounds
Teach an unusually broad range of subjects to a high level
Use a whole range of teaching methods, dating from Ancient times until the present day

Personal Description:
I studied Theology at both Leeds Trinity College and Durham University, where I achieved a First Class Honours degree and later Merit. After doing regular guest teaching and classroom assistance, I took the PTLLS Level 4 at the Advance Training Academy and began tutoring in 2014. Since then I have taught people from Cramlington, Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, and Sunderland (to name just a few examples). Each of my students has steadily increased their grades, achieving A*-C.

My aim is to provide first quality tuition in Religious Studies and Philosophy and to help people become more confident in these subjects. I am an individual who is committed to making education a lasting experience rather than a lecture to be endured. My experiences have taught me that each student has the potential to grow and change. To that end I take on students of all dispositions, from the confident and capable to nervous and struggling type.

I am based in the North East of England and offer face-to-face tuition to anyone in this region. However, I offer online tuition to people from other regions (Skype, phone or email).

If you want extra help, email me and we can set up an ice-breaker session. Each lesson from then onwards is specifically tailored to your learning style. We can then focus on a combination of extra content and exam technique. I will continuously ask for feedback to make sure that you are satisfied with the quality of service.

Teaching Experience:

My experience is threefold:
Classroom assistance: I did classroom work at Gateshead Volunteering and Opportunities Centre and New College Durham (2013). My duties involved: helping struggling students with classroom activities, helping them to express themselves and dealing with classroom behavioural issues. When working with students, I was noted for being approachable, compassionate, kind and patient.
Guest teaching: I gave regular guest lessons in Theology and Religious studies at Leeds Trinity University College, Jesmond Methodist Church, Gosforth High School and the Royal Grammar School (2011-14). My lessons were recognised as well-prepared, thought-provoking, and thorough.
Personal tutoring: since I started tutoring in the North East, I have taught students from Cramlington, Durham, Dunston, Gateshead, Gosforth, and Sunderland. I have also given online tuition to students at various regions of the UK (2013-). See testimonials for clients' views on me.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer two types of tuition:
Face-to-face: tuition is conducted at the student's home. It is always good practice to have an adult around the house. Face-to-face tuition is available to any student within reasonable travelling distance of Newcastle City Centre.
Online: tuition is conducted via phone, Skype and email (depending on the client preference). Online tuition is available to any student in the UK.

Each lesson is tailored to individual needs. The preliminary meeting will focus on your learning needs, and from this we will establish your goals for the tuition and the process for helping you to meet them. We will discuss how we can make the sessions play to your individual learning styles and strengths.

In lessons, we usually focus on two specific areas:
Extra teaching: we will usually have a discussion on a particular topic.
You will be given a detailed hand-out, some discussion questions, and (if necessary) a brief background on the important key thinkers.
Essay-writing: I will provide an essay-writing formula, which we will then
apply to past-paper questions, which will support you to write essays based on past exam papers. As part of the service, I will review the answer and provide detailed feedback to support further learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a number of essential books and they all depends on the students' levels and preferences. I sometimes mix chapters and books to deliver effective results and tailor classes to students needs.

My workplace has boards, a printer and I use videos if needed.

I teach from my teaching centre. It's a friendly, non-judgemental workplace that has all the necessary tools for teaching, including white boards, sheets, two computers, Arabic books, fast broadband and free tea and coffee. Also, The building has free, secure parking, a waiting area for parents accompanying their children and CCTVs everywhere :-) So, hopefully students will find that arrangement convenient and relaxing.

I aim to provide a solid grounding in Arabic, English and Koran while paying close attention to the needs of the individual. Learning should be fun and engaging, not a sort of punishment.

When teaching Koran, I don't impose my views on the student. I only educate him/her on what the text says and leave its spiritual interpretation to his/her judgement.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced journalist and academic tutor. I have spent hundreds of hours of teaching in classes and I have an outstanding ability to make even the most complicated concept understandable, due to my professional experience in the Media . I am proficient in producing various types of texts, from academic essays to fiction and blog content and I have tons of experience in producing them, both in Greek and in English.

Academically, I have two masters degrees from two of the most prestigious institutions in the U.K. The fields of my studies are Politics (specifically, political theory and constitutional design) and EU Politics. I graduated both M.Sc.s with distinction and particularly, my dissertations were examples of academic research of the highest standards and quality.

Teaching Experience:

I have considerable experience in teaching, acquired during my academic career but also during the early stages of my professional career, when I used to work as a teaching assistant of various subjects, including English as a foreign language in Greece, Politics and EU Politics. I have worked with students of s undergraduate and graduate level, but also adult professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I see teaching and especially tutoring as a means of communicating something that is known and familiar to me, to another person. In order to be clear and concise, I try to asses what the individual knows about the issue that we are about to talk about and then I try give my teaching a structure of sections and subsections, in which I try to cover as much information as possible in the minimum possible time.

My experience in journalism has taught me that I have to start from the bare minimum, the essentials of the concept I am about to explain and then build up by adding extra information, giving examples, making historical comparisons and giving the context. Simultaneously, I am trying to asses whether my listener has understood and is at ease with what I have already covered.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself, I've been an Enrichment Teaching now for over 20 years, my area of teaching has been dedicated to the younger generation between 3-12 year-olds, offering unique individual study support from: homework projects, enrichment programs, to the school curriculum.

I originally set up my first Pre-school Enrichment Centre in 2002, which I'm proud to say, is still running 15 years later in North London, England. I'm also part-owner of an Enrichment Centre in Boca Raton, Florida.

Over the years I've experienced many different formats in teaching. Personally, I believe a 3-dimensional method offers more growth, as it provides children with the opportunity to learn through styles that best suits their individual needs and helps build confidence and success.

No matter if your child is enhancing in subjects, or just needs that personal TLC to catch up, opening that door of opportunity is the best thing any parent and tutor can offer.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, It will be a pleasure to support you and your children.

I look forward hearing from you soon
Amanda

Teaching Experience:

I'm qualified through Cambridge University, with a Cambridge primary teaching Diploma, Child Educational Psychology. Nova South-Eastern University, Fort Lauderdale FL: Florida Requirement in Teaching and communication.
Barnet College; (Level 3) NVQ Certificate in Child Development. Second Language TEFL/TESOL)

I believe there is nothing more rewarding, than supporting children to grasp the fundamental basics, watch them progress with confidence and enhance their ability to achieve goals.

I have been teaching pre-school and primary around the world for 15 years, from UK, France, and America.
Over the years, this has allowed me to observe education from both sides, the child's view and the teaching curriculum, providing me with the opportunity to offer children many different styles and methods to expand their understanding.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child is unique when it comes to learning, and every child has their own different approaches to understanding a subject.
As a tutor, it's extremely important to always focus on each child's individual needs, and offer as many methods to support them build confidence, ability, and successful grades.

PLEASE NOTE: I offer sibling discounts, group tutoring discount, free worksheets, and an additional free 10 minutes discussion period to every session.
