Personal Description:
I have a lifetime of experience in fine art (drawing and painting) as well as in graphic design and photography.
I now practice as a professional artist/painter. I use several mediums, pencil, conte, pastel, watercolour, acrylic and (mostly) oil.
I live in the Surrey Hills and am inspired by the landscape. However I am interested in picture making at all levels in any subject, believing that the subject is merely a reference point to an idea.
Art is largely subjective but is, like music, expressive of emotion, thought, ideas, and self.
I am an award winning artist having won the ArTTable Bronze Frame for my still life in 2015/

Teaching Experience:

Adult Education at Ruxley Lane Centre, Epsom and at Reigate School of Art, Redhill.
Secondary Education at Carshalton High school for Girls.
University/Further Ed. at Hull, Norwich, Epsom, Falmouth, East Surrey College, Norwich and Croydon Colleges of Art.
I tutor as workshops individually in my Buckland studio, or individual tuition at the subjects' homes.
I also visit and tutor in art groups and clubs by request.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in clear demonstration of artistic principles and techniques and by guided practice by students. I am against the traditional style of art tutoring that simply allows the student to work with sometime critical comment 'over the shoulder'.
Art can be taught to a good technical level in the same way as any subject. Whilst everyone has natural ability to a degree, the student can learn to observe and record by training the eye and right brain. Many have no confidence in their ability. My aim is to give knowledge that inspires confidence so that a student may understand image making and learn to develop their own style through understanding of the principles of drawing, composition and creative expression.

Personal Description:
I am a thirty- eight year old Spanish native speaker who has been living and teaching languages (Spanish,German and French)in London for the past eleven years. I am outgoing, dynamic and passionate about teaching languages.I love seeing how my pupils progress and are able to communicate in another language lesson after lesson. I love travelling and meeting people from all over the world. In the past I lived in Germany for four years where I taught Spanish to students from all backgrounds, ages and levels.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Spanish speaker and experienced language teacher with recognised QTS. I have been devoted to language teaching in secondary schools in London for the last eleven years. During this time I have taught all levels (KS3/KS4/KS5) in the three languages (Spanish, German and French) preparing pupils for GCSE and AS/A level examinations.
Previously I have also worked in private language schools in Spain and in the in public further education sector in Germany, teaching Spanish and German to pupils of all ages and backgrounds. For the last three years I have been devoted to giving private tuition in the three languages as well as intensive courses (4 to 8 hours a day) to adults (linguistic immersion). At present I also give private tuition to primary school children, KS3 and GCSE students

Tutoring Approach:

As a vocational teacher I take a lot of pride in my work and strive to assure all pupils achieve their full potential. I am therefore used to identifying and meeting the needs of students of differing ability,levels, ages and backgrounds and planning accordingly adapting my methods to the student's needs.
I use the communicative approach trying to use the target language as much as possible as I strongly believe languages are tools of communication and therefore they must be spoken.
All in all I try to make my lessons fun, entertaining and applicable to your immediate language needs. For this reason I often use games, role plays,songs, Internet, cards, etc.. so there is no chance to get bored so,I hope to hear from you! Hasta pronto! Bis bald!

Personal Description:
I have a BA (Hons) degree in Acting which I received at Birmingham School of Acting. I have 11 years performing experience; this combined with the inspiring training I absorbed in drama school gives me extensive knowledge and insight into my specialised area. During my training I was awarded a Laurence Olivier Bursary by the Society of London Theatre for being one of the most promising actors in the UK. I was also nominated for the Carleton Hobbs Radio Award, recording at the BBC. I have attended workshops at the Royal Shakespeare Company and was extremely privileged to be selected to perform & attend workshops at Shakespeare's Globe at the Sam Wanamaker Festival in 2010.

I am a professional actor, director & writer as well as a tutor; so am able to understand the importance of each perspective and explain and explore the possibilities within these areas.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PTLLS Teaching Qualification so am able to organise my knowledge and teaching plans to suit my student's needs.

I understand that student's have their own learning style and my role is to discover, adapt and then help them explore within that style.

Tutoring Approach:

Positivity, relaxation, bravery, understanding writing and a respectful connection to your emotional core are what I believe makes an actor special.

I will give you the tools and encourage you to reach your highest potential in the specialist area you would like to explore.

I will teach you to stretch your imagination in order to make the bravest, most exciting acting choices.

My specialist areas are Classical Acting, Contemporary Theatre, Physical Theatre, Psychological Realism, Stage Combat, Acting through Song, Performance Art, Vocal Technique, Comedy, Contemporary Dance, Audition Technique, Stage, Screen and Broadcast.

I am excited at the prospect of sharing my knowledge and insight to inspire the inner greatness out of my students!

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. I'm Anna, I'm Italian, and I'm the teacher you are looking for!

I am passionate about teaching Classical Studies (Latin and Ancient Greek), as well as Italian; I have extensive teaching experience with beginning to advanced students of all ages. I hold a Bachelor and a Master's degree in Classical Studies from the University of Palermo (Italy).

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years of experience in teaching grammar and literature (Italian, Ancient Greek and Latin), to individual students, and to small groups of students in private and public schools.

I've also worked as a City Lit Latin Tutor: teaching Latin Grammar rules, ligatures, word divisions and accents. Reading correctly any kind of Roman inscription, discerning the subject of the inscription (public, commemorative, religious, etc.). Assessment, marking, report writing and translation from Latin to English.

More specifically, I have experience in teaching students at a wide range of levels including GCSE, A-Level, and University, as well as preparing students for university entrance examinations. Furthermore, I enjoy working with children (6-13 years olds).

Tutoring Approach:

The study of the ancient world, especially the languages and cultures of Greece and Rome is a tremendous opportunity for students to expand their minds.

I'm approachable and very patient. I strive to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible and to create a comfortable atmosphere. I think that every student is unique, so I always try to find the best approach for everyone, using intuitive and yet humorous examples as much as possible.
I believe that the best way to teach is to make the subject interesting to the student and to pass on my passion.

Personal Description:
I am primarily an animal portrait artist who works on a commission basis but I also enjoy painting other subject matter. My favourite medium is pastels as I love the soft effects that can be achieved, especially when dealing with fur. I work privately from my studio facility, which is part of an artist's network in central Hadleigh as well as teaching in people's homes and I also deliver workshops to art groups around Essex.

I exhibit locally and have had work accepted at the Mall Gallery in London. My latest commission was to produce a mural in conjunction with a local primary school. I also have several years experience of working with children in all age groups.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching one-to-one sessions over the last three years from beginners to intermediate and teaching in groups within a workshop session. I have experience of teaching both children and adults in a wide range of mediums, with the ability to differentiate the work if needed.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very supportive and encouraging. I like to put people at their ease, with friendly surroundings, so that they can savour the lesson and gain experience. My goal is to teach my students techniques in both drawing and understanding colour so they can ultimately develop their own style. There is the opportunity to try a range of mediums and learn the skills associated with each.

Personal Description:
I am a patient, energetic and enthusiastic first year student at Swansea University currently studying Translating and Interpreting in Italian and English and beginners Spanish. I attended Plymouth college of art and studied art and design as an extended diploma, while part taking in many TRP youth productions (Theater Royal Plymouth). I have been in cast in productions such as The World At Your Feet, Allie and the Alien and The Bus Project (a short film to raise awareness of the dangers of binge drinking in adolescents).i have always had a deep interest in performing arts and illustration and have always admired my teachers, observing their techniques of sharing their passion for the subject to their students. This made me think about how i could also use my language skills to help other people learn English as a foreign language (i was born in Italy and had to learn English from scratch myself).As a result this makes me uniquely qualified to teach both Italian and English as foreign languages due to the fact i am fluent in both.
I work well with children of all ages and can maintain a calm and positive attitude in every situation. I am known to be a very friendly and approachable individual and above all my passions, my biggest is to help others.

Teaching Experience:

i currently have no teaching experience, other than teaching my younger brother English since birth and supporting his creative and mental development.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always wanted to combine my language skills with my artistic abilities to teach a foreign language through drama and art as i think that creative expression leaves a long lasting impression and can help students remember their lessons through the distinct and fun activities that support their learning. i stand firmly by this because i have found that the majority of young people learn more effectively through colours, images, actions and most importantly memories through enjoyment. i don't think a child or adolescent cannot be fully engaged in the learning environment if they do not find the experience positively memorable. i do not believe that a student can benefit much from reading a large textbook in a non interactive and monotone environment as studies have shown that such teaching methods do not yield as successful results.

Personal Description:
I have been playing guitar from the age of 14, firstly teaching myself and then learning from teachers such as Gypie Mayo (Dr Feelgood). I formed my first band at 15 and have been teaching, playing and song-writing in bands ever since, playing in venues such as Ronnie Scott's, Dingwalls, The Marquee, Chinnery's, 100 club, playing alongside artists such as Finley Quaye, Boy George and the Brand New Heavies. My band Sentivo was on Long Lost Brother Records (Jamiroquai, SIA) making recordings for producers such as Mickey Most, Joey Negro and Mark Knight. I studied Music/Guitar Theory at a college in London where I gained my Music Diploma. I am now currently teaching guitar part time at a college in Southend and teaching private and one to one guitar lessons whilst playing, singing and writing music & lyrics for my new band

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and qualified Guitar tutor having achieved a Diploma in Music/Music Technology and have also completed a level 4 PTLLS teaching qualification. I am currently working at a college as a Guitar Tutor which I thoroughly enjoy and has given me great teaching experience and teacher training especially in teaching in groups and also one to one. In the last 17 years I have been tutoring and teaching privately which has given me great confidence and experience in teaching on a one to one basis. I also hold a current DBS certificate. I teach a number of different styles ranging from blues, rock'n'roll to rock, funk, jazz and soul Please give me a call or email to book a lesson whether you are an absolute beginner or want to improve or build on the level you already are.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to keep teaching relaxed and fun and like to get the student up and playing straight away, especially if you're a beginner as it's important to come away with something gained to boost the confidence and enthusiasm so you feel like you have achieved something solid and want to carry on playing. If you're already playing then I like to build on your skills and strengths and also focus on any weak areas to make you the best player you can possibly be. It is your lesson so you choose what you want to learn whether it is chords/progressions, melodies, scales/modes or songs or maybe tools to improve your own compositions and song writing. I can teach from my home and have a dedicated music room which is specially set up in a relaxed and musical environment to inspire the creative musician.

Personal Description:
I'm an expat Canadian whose been living in the UK for nearly 5 years now. I've been in the teaching industry since 2008 when I graduated from teachers college, and have experience teaching children, teens, and adults in Canada, Britain, Korea, Thailand, and Spain. I've travelled to most places in Europe, Asia, and South East Asia, and am hoping to continue my travels soon. I'm also a yoga teacher and daily practitioner as yoga is definitely a passion of mine. I have ideas of taking more yoga teaching courses as well as holistic health courses in the future in order to add to my repertoire of teaching skills.

Teaching Experience:

I received my Bachelors of Education in Primary-Junior Education in 2008, and then had 2 years of substitute teaching experience in both Canada and the UK. Due to lack of jobs in both countries, I decided to teach for 2 years in Seoul, South Korea, which was a life-changing time as I learned a vast amount of not only teaching but also life skills. I then received my CELTA certificate in Thailand, which has since allowed me to teach English as a Foreign Language to adults. I've been teaching at a private language school in Southampton since 2012, with a brief stint in Valencia, Spain, where I taught children at a summer camp, as well as adults at a private language school. Throughout these years, I've tutored a variety of people, including children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make my ESL teaching and materials as real as possible since the purpose of English (as a foreign language) education is to be used in the real world. I'm extremely active and creative, and I like for the students to be extremely involved in and accountable for the own education. I run a student-centred classroom where the teacher facilitates rather than dictates. I'm supportive and knowledgeable about the content, but always try to elicit answers from the students themselves. These qualities can of course be transferred to any teaching moment and to any subject, whether it be learning English grammar to use in the workforce, or be deciphering a text for an exam. I would rather give them tools and strategies to use on their own rather than just give them answers that only have value in that one moment.
