Personal Description:
I grew up in the UK and then worked in Indonesia for 10 years, teaching Indonesian scholars on pre-departure academic programs. I also taught cross-cultural and study skills courses. After Indonesia, I moved to Australia, where I worked at two universities in Brisbane, the University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology. More recently I have worked on Exeter and Bath University's pre-sessional program. I'm a friendly, kind and patient person with a good sense of humour and I love teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 20 years, mainly in the UK, Australia and Indonesia. I have experience working with English language learners at all levels and particularly at the university level. I can prepare students before their academic study or can assist them when they have already started university.
I am also very experienced in exam preparation. Most of my work has been on IELTS preparation courses (I used to be an IELTS examiner) but also on FCE preparation programs. I currently teach students in groups and one-to-one and I am available for Skype classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it's important to listen to students and identify their individual needs. I try and see them as they are, without judgment and I also encourage them to see the facts about their language learning, rather than their opinions. Many students say they are 'bad students' and this does not help their learning. So I show them a different path where they can look at the specifics of what they are doing and how they can improve their skills step by step. This makes them feel better about themselves and their studies. It also gives them responsibility for their own learning.
I also bring humour into the classroom as I feel laughter is very important to the learning process. Some students have said that my classes are 'like being in a family' and I think that's a lovely compliment.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching Latin and Classical Studies for over 10 years. I have a BA Hons in Latin and Classical Studies from University College Dublin, a Masters in Classics from King's College London and a Diploma in Spoken Latin, for which I studied under the translator for the Vatican. I am passionate about my subject and love to share my enthusiasm for Latin with my students. As well as private tutoring, I also teach Latin and Classics in schools (both primary and secondary), run after school Latin clubs, and am also training teachers who will teach Latin as part of a project I am involved with to introduce Latin into state schools. I also teach Classical Studies and Ancient History.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Latin and Classical Studies for over 5 years. My students have been of all ages and at vastly different stages in their learning. I have helped students who have been struggling with school coursework, helped prepare students for exams, and also designed entire curricula for students who wish to learn from scratch. I come with excellent references and proven results, with some previous students having gone on to study Classics at Oxbridge and other third level institutions, obtaining Latin scholarships to college, and even going on to teach Latin themselves in secondary schools. I have experience of private tutoring, small groups, classroom teaching at both primary and secondary level, exam preparation classes, after school clubs and running teaching workships to train future teachers of Latin.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutorials to fit the needs of each individual student.

Subjects
  • Latin
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I'm a friendly, qualified teacher, currently working in a London secondary school teaching RS, Philosophy and English. I studied Theology and Religious Studies at Cambridge (achieved a First) and moved to London to do an MA in International Politics and Human Rights at City University. I caught the London bug so I'm still here! I really enjoy the opportunity it offers to teach students from a whole range of backgrounds and abilities. I have always loved learning, and I love helping children develop their understanding of the world through their chosen subjects, so I find tutoring really rewarding.

I am both professional and personable, and have always had good relationships with my tutees and their parents.

Teaching Experience:

I have a lot of experience with children through nannying and youth camps I've helped on over the past 10 years, and also have experience tutoring 1-1 in London on a weekly basis. I did my teacher training in Tower Hamlets 2 years ago, and have been working as a teacher since. I achieved 'Outstanding' or 'Good' standards in all lessons that were observed during my training.

I am passionate about the importance of education, for building both competence and confidence into children and young adults.

The Cambridge supervision system showed me how beneficial individual tutoring can be. I had two 1-1 sessions every week with my subject supervisors, which taught me first hand how to inspire, challenge and build confidence in the tutor-tutee relationship.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have a preliminary discussion (usually by phone, but in person is also fine) with the student's parent(s) to find out about the student's level of understanding, capability and confidence, as well as their main goals and any relevant exam board they are attached to. I will tailor my approach on this basis, as well as through meeting the student and talking about what s/he finds interesting and how s/he learns best.

The method of teaching will vary between pupils as well as between subjects, most markedly between languages and sciences. However, common methods used will be explaining and clarifying any 'sticking points', going through set questions and reviewing the answers, and using creative means to bring the subject to life for the student. I strongly believe that when a student enjoys the learning process and achieves set goals, however small, his/her learning is much faster and memory is greatly improved.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)

Tutoring Approach:

I offer rigorous editing services for university and postgraduate students. My hourly rate is high, relative to other tutors, but I make no apology for my rate. When you contract with me, you get a thorough, professional job from a working academic. You will be apprised of the work I am doing at every step - and you can opt for me to work fewer hours on a project.

Many students regard my editing as an education that helps them mature as academic writers, so that they can take the next step to successful MA and PhD work.

Please * do not * contact me if you need someone to do your writing for you. I accept only accomplished students who want to make substantial advances in their writing. I take my responsibility to the academy very seriously and I will reject any student who tries to use my service to engage in plagiarism.

Personal Description:
My students find me enthusiastic, supportive, cordial and professional. I am responsive, a good listener, able to make complex ideas accessible and exciting, and can balance exploratory, individualised and structured approaches to learning. Ultimately, I believe that curiosity, engagement, and questioning are the keys to being both successful in exams and developing a life-long love of English.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced A level English specialist tutor who has taught in three 'Beacon Status' sixth-form colleges, all of which have been rated 'outstanding' by OFSTED. I have an excellent track-record of results in terms of both 'value-added' and 'raw' grades and am able to inspire and motivate students to attain their potential in English. I have managed an outstanding department of 10 teachers and 850 A level students for four years in a sixth form college in Surrey, introducing new creative and digital methods into daily practice and have also worked at Britain's top state-sector sixth form college in Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in drawing from a wide range of teaching methods to make a student's experience of English varied, fresh and challenging as well as identifying the particular needs of each individual to ensure that the right skills are prioritised and tackled rigorously.
Many students appreciate having a clear direction to learning and I believe in signposting different areas in a focused way - whether the skills involve close reading, constructing a debate, understanding or applying theory, researching contexts, or working on essay techniques and planning past papers.

Personal Description:
I am Pharmacist. I have masters in Pharmaceutical sciences from the University of Sunderland. I have taught primary school students to University students as a private tutor. I am able to make learning real to the individual by explaining the concept of different topics in a way that is practical and understandable. This method of teaching makes it easier for the student to remember more.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught various age groups. Primary, GCSE and A-Levels. (Edexcel/OCR/AQA)

Tutoring Approach:

I have learnt over the years that students learn in different ways. I try to identify how best the student likes and learn best and apply it accordingly. However I have achieved success the most by making the student understand the rational behind the solution for any challenge.

Personal Description:
I recently returned to the UK after a number of years living and teaching in China, and now I wish to use the experience i have gained over the years to help students who need to learn English in the UK.
When i am not working i enjoy travelling and playing sport. In addition to living in China, i have also lived in New Zealand and Australia and travelled extensively in Europe.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years. My experience has been gained predominantly in China, though i have taught at a college in the UK. I have taught a variety of nationalities and also all ages and levels. I possess both the CELTA and DELTA teaching practice qualifications. I was also an IELTS speaking and writing test examiner for two years and have passed a Cambridge certified online course in the teaching of IELTS.

Tutoring Approach:

Having lived and worked in China for many years, i am aware of the difficulty of learning a foreign language. However,i believe that with the right attitude, approach and guidance it is possible to achieve your study goals in any language.
I believe in establishing realistic and quantifiable goals when beginning tutoring for progress to be measured against. I also believe that work done in a student's own time is as important as work done in a formal classroom setting. Regular review of what has been studied is also vital.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and have recently moved to the west Yorkshire area from Newcastle Upon Tyne. I have loved to Perform ever since being a small child where my hobbies were dancing and drama. Through this I have performed in many different places including Her Majesty's theatre in the West End. I have also been very interested in community arts and theatre. It was during my GCSE years when I decided I wanted to turn my hobby into my career. After passing my GCSE in Drama and Alevel in Performing Arts, I graduated from Newcastle College (affiliated by Teeside University) in 2014 with a BA (hons) in Acting where I received a First Class Degree and the year after I graduated again with my PGCE which I specialised in Drama. After a year trying to make a life for myself in Newcastle I moved to West Yorkshire where my Parents are currently living.

As well as teaching and working a bar job to enable to fund myself I am also in the process of applying for masters degree, hoping to start in September.

Teaching Experience:

During my PGCE year I completed my teaching placement at Newcastle college where I taught and lead modules in the BTEC Performing Arts course for both level 1 and level 2, teaching both writing and practical assignments. During my PGCE year I also taught lessons with second year degree students in their alternative technique module, looking at different ideas that can added in to devised theatre.

Even though I have not taught one-to-one private tuition, for the past year I have been teaching Comedy and Drama at a Saturday Performing Arts Academy in the North East, I still travel every Saturday to teach at the drama Academy. I am currently involved in helping to direct my third show with the academy, one of which we performed in London.

As a private tutor I can help with a variety of needs for the student, from extra help with drama GCSEs, Alevels and Degree courses both with written work and Practical work. I Can help with Auditions for Drama school or private lessons to help with extra curricular drama exams such as Trinity College London - where I am some experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe it is important to create a rapport with students, as from experience they become comfortable with me as a teacher and create mutual respect which I believe helps with the learning journey. I care about my students success.


I can tutor face to face (essential for practical work) or tutor online via emails and Skype, where I can give feedback, help to break down tasks, plan , help with research and set tasks when need be to further on the learning.

I set homework as and when I feel is appropriate.

Personal Description:
University degree as a Russian-English linguist and a teacher. I am fully qualified to teach 'Russian for Work and Life', A-level, Higher Russian. I know firsthand how challenging it can be to study a foreign language. Native Russian speaker, I also speak Bulgarian and Romanian and I used to study German and French.

I have recently moved to Scotland, where my daughter, who also knows more than 4 languages, has become a student doctor. As a mother and a teacher, I strongly believe that the learning process should be enjoyable in order to achieve the best results.
I have different interests: from reading classical literature to skiing, from cooking to playing tennis, from travelling to knitting, from dogs to....cats :-)
People who know me say that I am a cheerful and friendly person.

Teaching Experience:

At present, teaching at a Glasgow University, at Glasgow schools, at a language school, also, to bilingual children at the Russian Scool of Scotland.
Face-to-face and online lessons, private lessons and small groups' lessons of Beginners or Pre-Intermediate learners in Glasgow.

I am regularly invited to do workshops for the Scotland's National Centre for Languages, to spark interest in the language.

I love my job and I have taught the languages over 15 years to different age groups, from home, at language courses, at schools, universities, for US Government and Moldovan Government. I am equally happy to teach one-to-one and to large groups.

I also have a University Diploma in Psychology and MBA Diploma. The knowledge helps me understand people's motivation better and professionally teach business levels of the languages.

Tutoring Approach:

Absolutely all lessons are individually tailored. After each lesson, my students receive a short report on the vocabulary and grammar studied, also, some materials on their interests.
If you are thinking of a New Year Resolution as 'I will learn Russian (or English)' please don't :-) My advice is to set quantitative goals, e.g.2-4 hours/week or to reach the next level- e.g. to reach Pre-Intermediate within 3 months etc. I wish you all the best in 2017!

'Laugh Listen Learn' approach
When you enjoy the learning process you achieve the best results. Humour helps a lot and I do not believe that the word "studying" was made from two words "student dying"...
