Personal Description:
I am full time engineer working in Victoria, after achieving a degree in Civil Engineering in Imperial College, London. At 8, I studied at DCPS, then moving to St Pauls at 13+ (common entrance). Coming from this background, I understand the pressures of succeeding at all levels.

Teaching Experience:

I have had 7 years experience, privately tutoring children between the ages of 11 to 19. Last year, I managed to help 2 of my students achieve A grades for Maths A-level, a child achieving a B in Chemistry A-Level, 2 children achieving A* in Science GSCE and a group of 4 girls getting into their preferred school at 11+, amongst others.

Tutoring Approach:

I will ensure that your child willl have full knowledge of the entire syllabus, providing him/her with many examples, so their confidence would be boosted. Topics shall be explained with clarity and patience so that your child will feel at ease with his/her learning experience.

Having taught many children of differing standards, I will adapt my tutoring so that your child will benefit greatly, by improving on his/her weaknesses and pushing forwards his/her strengths.

Personal Description:
Hello there, my name is Tony, an accounting tutor. Here's the secret...

Most students imagine accounting to be a subject riddled with daunting calculations and demanding a higher form of intelligence. This is not so. In my years of teaching students I have discovered that most students fail because they study the wrong thing. Look at it this way. To understand the working of a balance sheet [statement of financial position] most students memorise the order in which elements are applied. This is the cardinal sin.

To be a successful student you must understand why we need a balance sheet and what information users of this particular financial statement are looking for. When you look at it from a users perspective [understanding who those users are and what they want] your mind no longer tries to remember what was after what but your mind starts to actually determine what needs to be there to satisfy the users questions regarding a companies affairs.

This way you can forget the specific format but you can always recreate it because you actually understand what is going on and why it is going on. Give me a call, I'll help you see the better side of accounting.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years of tutoring students in the UK. I am passionate in what I do and I enjoy helping students.

For online students I promise you an experience you never thought was possible. You will be able to see my white board/note pad on your computer screen. Every stroke or letter I write will appear on your screen instantly. It will be like we are in the same room. Please give it a try and if you do not like it I will give you a full refund.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus mainly on two aspects; Understanding of the subject and Examination techniques. To achieve this I encourage one to one tutoring although in rare cases I accept groups.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced industrial chemist, having postdoctoral experience with Avecia and GSK. I then retrained as a teacher and have taught at all levels from school to University. My experience covers A-levels and Advanced Higher. I have six years teaching experience, which includes 3 years at FE colleges, 1 year at University and 2 years at secondary school. As a home tutor and online tutor I have two years experience. Some of my students needed A's to enter Medicine or veterinary medicine. With my help they pulled their grades up to get this. Other students just wanted to pass and sometimes they surprised themselves by getting B's. I have taught dyslexic students as they were struggling with traditional teaching at school or college. My visual and imaginative teaching style has helped many of these students. In fact this approach helps all my students. Based in France I am limited to online tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching in schools, colleges and University. My experience covers A-Levels, HND, HNC and University. I also specialize in private tuition which I enjoy very much. Many tutors are students or graduates who do not have teacher training. I am a professional educator who provides quality tutoring at very reasonable rates.

Tutoring Approach:

All my students get a tailored learning approach and regular feedback at the end of each tutoring session. Underpinning my tutoring is exam preparation. Students are coached to understand the marking process. During the tutorial session students work hard by solving problems and formulating their own conclusions. In fact I work on the principle "don't tell teach". In first tuition I will provide proof of qualifications. With advances in technology online tuition provides an excellent alternative to home tutoring. I can talk to students face to face via skype. We can also communicate via an online white board (its online so you have nothing to install on your computer). All you need is a computer, internet, skype and a micro. I will give a short free trial tutorial before paid tutorials. If you are not satisfied we part company no obligation.

Personal Description:
Imagination; innovation; inspiration - tuition tailored to the individual and designed not just to educate, but to inspire!

Annabel is a professional and capable tutor who has many years experience working with children, teenagers and adults. Highly motivated, creative and intuitive, she puts enjoyment at the heart of every lesson and believes everybody has the potential to improve and excel. Annabel has a DBS clearance and also has a certificate in 'Level 3 Safeguarding Children'.

Annabel effectively tailors every lesson to the individual and is able to utilise her skills in order to ensure every tutee is given tuition to suit their personal learning style. Equally adept with pre-schoolers and GCSE students, Annabel enjoys the challenge and subsequent rewards that come from working with a wide age-range. Specialist tuition for those with dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia is offered to encourage confidence and proficiency when learning new ideas and concepts.


IMPORTANT NOTES

★ Tuition is carried out at Annabel's own venue. People learn more effectively outside of their home environment and also this enables Annabel to keep session costs down. All tutees are entitled to an introductory session (normally priced) before paying for a block of five or ten sessions. Online tuition is offered for those who cannot travel to the venue.

★ Hourly rates for secondary students increase if Annabel has to do extra preparation, or buy additional materials, and all KS3, GCSE and EFL students will be given an induction before a set price is given (this is never over £23 per hour for KS3 and £25 per hour for GCSE/EFL). EFL lessons cover those who are working to at least a 'Lower Elementary Level' and, unfortunately, Annabel is unable to offer English tuition to those who speak only single words, or no English. ​

Personal Description:
About me:
Hi! I am Zara. I am kind and caring, considerate and patient. I have profound experience teaching languages (Russian and English) to various ages and learning backgrounds. Russian is my native language. I graduated from Russian University and have BA degree in languages.
I enjoy working with children, young people and adults helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. My students always get only GOOD RESULTS! Some of them are now students of English Universities studying Russian.
With my experience working at various educational institutions for 12 years (my previous position was senior Lecturer of the Russian University) I have a diverse background with much to offer. I teach the beginners and those who just want to improve their language skills, as well as Business and Legal Russian.
One to one or Skype lessons!

Apart from teaching I do prompt and professional translations from English into Russian and vise verse in such subjects as Business, Economy, Law, Mass Media, etc.

Teaching Experience:

With my experience working at various educational institutions for 12 years (my previous position was senior teacher of the University) I have a diverse background with much to offer. To me, the role of a Tutor is an important and interesting role to hold. It brings a lot of interesting challenges and the idea of working with individuals to develop their natural skills is really what I look forward to when at work. I graduated from Russian Pedagogical University and have BA Degree in languages.

Tutoring Approach:

The methods I teach foreign languages are unique and tailored to an individual' s needs. All students are different and it is very important to find their strengths, focus on them and use them right to develop their learning abilities.
I always seriously and thoroughly prepare myself for each lesson, think over every minute of it, provide my students with useful and interesting material which covers the aspects of the language that my students want to focus on and at the same time, I ensure that the lessons are fun - which means they look forward to them! I use a lot of playing techniques, every aspect of learning the language is involved; Reading, Speaking, Listening and Writing. I teach spoken Russian, Business Russian, do prepare for the Exams and so on....
I puts my clients at ease straight away making it the ideal learning environment to progress quickly and easily.

I was selected to attend the Google Top Black Talent Programme, recognising the best talents in the UK at the moment.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught computer literacy to individuals from disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is simple. Kids will never learn unless they want to. I intend to present my teaching in a way that is creative and interesting to the student, so as to make the best of each session. The best teachers do not just teach. They engage. It is paramount you are able to capture the interest of your student, something I am more than capable of.

Personal Description:
Ola! Tudo bem?

I am Alexsandra, I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker, a fully qualified and certified language teacher who has been teaching Brazilian Portuguese for more than 15 years.

I really LOVE what I do.

Over the years I have met many children, usually born to mixed parents or outside Brazil, who unfortunately cannot speak Portuguese.

I have also met adults, who regret not to have learned Portuguese from their parents when they were a child.

Some parents also regret not to have taught Portuguese to their children for whatever reason when they had the chance to do it.

Then I decided to help Brazilian parents teach Portuguese to their children while they are still young. Children can learn a language very easily if they are exposed to it, but they still need your help, especially if you live abroad.

Whenever I go to Brazil on holiday, I always buy books, CDs and DVDs for children so my students can increase their knowledge of Portuguese and also learn more about the Brazilian culture through stories, songs and movies.

Speaking to your child only in Portuguese (your native language) is a great gift and an asset you can give to your child.

Teaching Experience:

Have you been to Brazil and now you want to keep practicing the language? Going to Brazil for a lovely holiday? I can help you.

I have a degree in Portuguese and English Language and Literature and used to teach Portuguese and English in Brazil until I moved to the UK in 2013. Since then, I have been teaching Brazilian Portuguese ( private lessons ). Teaching is my passion and I always try to present the language in a fun and effective way making use of a wide range of resources, especially songs, to enhance the learning process.
I hold formal qualifications to teach Portuguese and I have experience in teaching Portuguese as a foreign language. My personal qualities as a language tutor are:

- Enthusiasm

- Reliability

- Creativity

- Experience

I have taught students of all ages and abilities and I am really passionate about teaching languages. It is a real pleasure for me to see the development of my students` language skills.

Portuguese is a wonderfully expressive and fascinating language and can be useful for education, travel and business.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer face to face Portuguese Language lessons. My courses are tailored to individual needs.

My Portuguese lessons emphasize both the culture and the literature of Brazil, and include classes on popular culture, music & cinema. My personal language lab has a varied collection of both Brazilian films as well as music. I also offer options for a "Tarde no Cinema", where students can get together and watch Brazilian films.

Each student has a different way of learning or wants to learn the language for a specific purpose, so it's really important that you let me know why do you want to learn Portuguese, if you speak any other foreign language, if you want to focus on writing, speaking, understanding or all three, if you have a deadline to be fluent in Portuguese, how many lessons per week are you willing to take.

If you are beginning to learn Portuguese or if you already have an intermediate or advanced level, I'll be happy to help you out with whatever you need. I can explain grammatical points, practice vocabulary and most importantly help you develop your oral proficiency.

I have a wide variety of teaching resources and I try to make my lessons as engaging and motivating as possible.

Please contact me for any enquiries.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Obrigada!

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Luis. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea. I am from Spain and I am very passionate about academia and learning in general.

My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology (biology), ocean dynamics and sediment geochemistry (chemistry). Data interpreting is part of my research work and it involves statistics of academic level and mathematical modelling.

I collaborated with AU Science Magazine writing blog posts and editing articles. I am currently involved in a Research Development initiative to create a collaborative framework within the University of Aberdeen for researchers and students alike.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a demonstrator at the University of Aberdeen since October 2014, where I assist in the following courses in two Schools:

School of Biological Sciences:
- Oceans and Society (SX1015)
- Animal Population Ecology (ZO3307)
- Ecology and Environmental Science (BI1511)

College of Natural and Computing Sciences:
- Chemistry for the Life Sciences (CM1020)
- Chemistry for the Physical Sciences (CM1021)

I have ample tutoring experience from when I was at University in Spain and I continue tutoring to this day in Aberdeen (+6 years). I have long-distance students whom I tutor via Skype. I was also a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students.

Tutoring Approach:

Where students find difficulties I like to break down concepts into simpler pieces that then assemble to represent the entire idea. I also think it is important to let the pupil know the purpose of these concepts in a wider context so that they can appreciate the value of learning the contents of the course.

Finally, I am an advocate of enjoying learning and always endeavour to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible.

Personal Description:
I am an Italian artist based in London, I graduated with Distinction from the MA programme at the Slade School of Fine Art and, since then, I have been working at research, installation, education and participation projects in the UK and internationally.
My practice relies on knowledge of a variety of media and materials, moving between traditional and experimental approaches: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Photography, Digital Media and Installation. I ground my work in an extensive formation and vivid interest in the History and Theory of Art, and in the Humanities, with a focus on Languages, the Linguistic structures and Literature of my native Italian and English.
I offer private teaching of Art and art related subjects in English or Italian, as well as teaching Italian for speakers of other languages, especially through the exploration of Arts, Literature and culture.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching skills have been formed and enriched by a variety of experiences:

- over 8 years of one-to-one tutoring.
At all levels and specifically tailored for each tutee's needs, interests and characteristics. Can cover: Art, Contemporary Drawing and Painting, Life Drawing, Art Theory, English grammar and conversation for foreigners, Italian grammar, conversation and literature for foreigners, and general studying, writing, reading and speaking skills.

- 5 years of creating and delivering art workshops for children and young adults.
Working with schools, art institutions (recently: Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milan, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge and Istituto Sacro Cuore Primary School) and with the Arts Awards scheme by Trinity College London. My workshops on learning through imagination have found the support of an Incentive Award to the Art Practice by Brera Academy of Fine Art (2012).

- Adult art teaching, privately and in institutions (The Slade Summer School 2014, 2015 and 2016)

- Art lecturing and presentations include: University of West London UWL, Universitą di Milano Bicocca UnimiB, A-levels Art students from Liceo Artistico Sacro Cuore, The Slade Summer Foundation students, Circuit Cambridge young people programme at Kettle's Yard and Wysing Arts Centre.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring builds upon my enthusiasm for sharing passion and knowledge, combined with high professional standards and knowledge of teaching methods. My teaching always tries to happen in relation to hands-on and on-the-field experiences, to procede breaking down and making sense the notions and concepts they make available. Seriousness, commitment and progress in learning thus go hand in hand with interest, curiosity and enjoyment.

Personal Description:
Friendly, 25, Human Physiology (Hons), hard working, dedicated, passionate.

Teaching Experience:

Experience teaching in a junior school (voluntary, all subjects except music). Hosting A level 'clinics' in my free time during my A-levels and first year of university for people in need of help.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to find the individuals background knowledge and learning style. Once this is established, I will use varying techniques to help the individual learn and retain the knowledge needed within the session, as well as give them exercises and homework to improve on their own, or in preparation for next time. The different techniques will vary from repetition, to visual / sensory linking, word association, drawing / being engaged physically in an activity and much more, identifying the best learning style and using the accompanying technique forms neural connections within the brain more easily and thus allowing one to access the information needed more freely and at will.
