Teaching Experience:

I studied at Dundee College of Education where I gained a Diploma in Primary Education. This was a three year course. I then took another Certificate in Early Years. After leaving College, I taught in both the state and private primary sector. I left teaching to have my children and then to nurse my youngest child who was quite sick for a few years. Once his health was better, I started working as a tutor from home or going to the client's house to tutor. I now tutor seven days a week. I have experience in Maths, Language, Phonics and Grammar. I also tutor children in preparation for entrance exams in to the independent sector, which includes Verbal, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths, Language and Spelling. The children I have tutored have all had great success, many going forward for a scholarship.
I have an online Dyslexia touch type programme which has had tremendous success. Many children, with the school's permission , come to be tutored within school hours.

Tutoring Approach:

I always believe that the child should feel comfortable with the person they are being tutored by and build up a good relationship. Tutoring is not only about helping the child to succeed but also for them to gain confidence and self belief. I have various methods of tutoring from written work, reading and oral work. I also have a computer available where we can work from. eg online games After each lesson, I give the child homework to be completed for the next lesson.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Spanish teacher and completed my PGCE in Spanish with French at Newcastle University in 2009. I then went on to gain Qualified Teacher Status in 2010. All of my teaching qualifications are up to date and can be produced, along with my current CRB form, in the first lesson.

I am fluent in Spanish and studied Law with Spanish at Nottingham University. This involved living for a year in Valencia which gave me a wonderful insight into Spanish culture. I then went on to spend a year teaching English in Peru, a country which I have returned to visit several times. I have also spent time living in Honduras where I undertook voluntary work in a Primary School. These experiences have made Spanish one of my great passions and I hope to pass this on to my students.

After working for several years as a Languages teacher in the North East, in December 2013 I decided to leave my post in a South Tyneside school to spend more time with my young daughter. This move will now enable me to spend more time on Private Tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Since 2009 I have worked as a Languages teacher in a number of schools in the North East. My responsibilities have included:
- Teaching Spanish at Key Stage 3 and at GCSE and A level
- Writing my own Schemes of Work
- Conducting and marking GCSE written and speaking controlled assessments
- Teaching all aspects of Spanish grammar at AS and A2 level
- Teaching Cultural topics for A2 AQA syllabus

Private Tuition:

Main highlights include:

- Tutoring a student who needed to re-sit her A2 Spanish paper to attend the University of her choice. This student was successful in her re-sit and has since gone on to study Spanish at University.

- Tutoring an English speaking student who had lived in Tenerife and was unable to study Spanish at his school on relocation to the North East. I solely tutored him through the AQA AS course in which he gained a grade A at the age of 13.
I subsequently tutored him throughout the whole of the A2 course, including both cultural topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient and considerate and always strive to get the best from my students. In my approach to exam preparation, I believe in the importance of consolidating learning through self study, homework and past exam papers.

(Please note, the below rates are based on the student travelling to my home. I am also happy to travel to the student and a reasonable rate for travel will be negotiated for travel time and expenses).

resources.

What I can offer you?

1) Traditional Spanish lessons: These are structured following the Common European Framework. This course is typically taught through written work in workbooks and verbal exercises introduced in textbooks. Each section has a variety of activities to help you to develop listening, reading, speaking, writing and pronunciation skills.

2) Specialized Spanish lessons: Just tell me how you want to learn and I will create lessons that focus on your interests and objectives (additional costs). Lessons are created and designed especially for your linguistic interests, such as Spanish for business (for Spain and Latin America), medical Spanish for Health Care Professionals, Spanish culture, literature, history and Politics.

3)Learning Modules: If you already have Spanish basic knowledge the lessons can be based upon whatever aspect of the Spanish language you would like to focus on or skill you want to improve.

Personal Description:
I was born and raised in Cyprus and moved to England to study Music. I have acquired a Music bachelor's degree at Anglia Ruskin University and I am in the process of completing another BA in Jazz at Middlesex University London. I also have a grade 8 of Harmony of music and a grade 7 of Electric Guitar. As a professional guitarist I spend my time performing in various settings and in different styles such as Jazz, Blues, Funk and Rock as well as classical music.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching guitar and music theory privately for the last 7 years in Cambridge and London. In the last 2 years along with being a full time student I have worked as an SLA (Student Learning Assistant) at Middlesex university. This has been a great way to gain teaching experience, working alongside my teachers in supporting the learning experience of students of the below mine. Part of the job includes organising one-to-one and group workshops to review taught material and clarify assignments. I also participated (as a volunteer) in music workshops in London organized by the GPA (Greek Parents Association) and KITE MUSIC. I took part in rehearsals that led up to a concert, where I helped the participants (4-19 year old children of Greek parents born in the UK) with phonetic pronunciation, Greek diction and memorizing their part in the chorus as well as teaching chord patterns to young guitar playing participants. Finally I took part in an internship programme at Haslingfield Endowed Primary School where I assisted the Music teacher in preparation for a student concert in honour of composer Henry Purcell.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to tailor the lesson around the needs of the student. Every student is an individual with different goals and aspirations as well as strengths.

For example, I find that for children under the age of 10, a 30 minute or 45 minute lesson can be more productive as the student does not get as tired or lose concentration. Also a lesson plan will be significantly different for a student who wants to learn theory, harmony and guitar rather than a student who is interested in focusing in only one of those subjects.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am in my forties and I live in Worthing. I specialise in teaching English as a foreign language. I welcome teaching both individuals and small groups with everyday, educational or business English.

I enjoy travelling, meeting new people and learning about other countries. I have just returned from teaching English in Japan for four years, which I loved.

I also have experience working in both education and business in the UK. I was a primary school teacher for eight years and worked in insurance for 11 years.

Teaching Experience:

-I taught Keys Stage 1 and 2 for eight years in an East London primary school. The majority of which did not speak English regularly at home.
-I carried out training on technical insurance issues as part of my job with the insurance company.
-I taught English in two of Japan's well known English conversation schools (ECC and AEON). I worked with students ages ranging from 18 months to 70+ at all levels from beginner to advanced. I also did some work in a few Japanese kindergartens and some summer relief work in a local Worthing language school (CES).

Tutoring Approach:

I like lessons to be fun and the students to feel relaxed. The needs of the students comes first as everyone is different.

After an initial assessment ,I agree with the tutee a lesson progress plan. The lessons will have a clear goal and will relate to real life wherever possible.

Please note that all lessons with children should be at their home with a responsible adult present or available.

Personal Description:
Having completed a PGCE from the University of Oxford, I am a qualified Mathematics teacher, currently working at one of the top schools in the country. Tutoring is not something I just do on the side of another full time job; teaching Mathematics is my passion and career. During my Undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Warwick, I have spent time teaching Mathematics at schools in England and South Africa. Having worked as a private tutor for over five years, I provide top quality teaching that is tailored to the needs of each individual pupil. I am passionate about the teaching of Mathematics and seek to instil not just a deep relational understanding, but also an enthusiasm for Mathematics into his pupils.

Teaching Experience:

BSc in Mathematics, University of Warwick
PGCE in Mathematics, Keble College, Oxford
2 years teaching at one of the top boys' schools in the country (at present)

Tutoring Approach:

It is my belief that every child has potential to achieve excellent results at school mathematics if they are provided with the correct support and work ethic. It is my aim to spend time with your child in order to design an individual teaching programme that will allow them to develop their strengths and work on the gaps in their knowledge. My tutoring is much more than supervising a child's school work or simply providing them with extra worksheets. As a full time Mathematics teacher, I can ensure that you will not only be getting a tutor who is incredibly dedicated, but also a teacher who has been trained and is practicing mathematics teaching at on the finest schools in the country.

I am a fully qualified primary school teacher, registered with the General Teaching Council Scotland. I hold Enhanced CRB Disclosure. I have worked full-time in both Glasgow and London for 5 years.

Personal Description:
Buongiorno. My name is Donatella and I am from Rome.
I am a fully qualified, professional language teacher and I have been living and working in London as a teacher since 1999.
I hold a First Class Master degree in Humanities with Highest Distintion from "Universita' La Sapienza" di Roma (Laurea Magistrale in Lettere e Filosofia con 110 e Lode) with a specialization in History of the Arts.

In 2000 I attended in London a 1 year Language training course and achieved an Oxford & Cambridge Certificate to teach Italian as a foreign language (OCR TFLA).

Teaching Experience:

In Italy I worked both as a teacher in a Montessorri school and as a tour guide.
In 2001 I started working for the LONDON COLLEGE OF FASHION, in Bond Street, were I taught Italian specificly for Fashion.
From 2004 to 2013 I taught at the UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS LONDON (Holborn) in the folllowing courses:

- BA Elective Italian for Fashion;
- FLAW courses (Foreign Language at Work),
- MFL courses (Modern Foreign Languages)
- ABC Award courses.

During the academic year 2005/2006 I also worked as an External verifier at GOLDSMITH UNIVERSITY, in New Cross, London.

I also have extensive experience as a private teacher, tutoring young students from age 5 to 16 as well as adults.
Through the years I have attended various training courses, including:

- One week International Conference "Italian as a Foreign Language" - UCL (2003)
- "Motivation Techniques and Exam preparation in Italian" - Italian Cultural Institute - London (2004)
- Seminars: "Language & Culture"; "One to one tuitions" - International House, London (2010).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is based on 4 pillars: passion; patience; careful planning; consideration of learner's needs & motivation.

I am extremely passionate about Italy, its culture and its tradition and I am enthusiastic about providing lovers of Italy with new opportunities to discover this incredibly diverse country through its language.

I regard PATIENCE in understanding and respecting students' individual pace, abilities and inclinations as a mile stone for my profession.

Teaching is not something you can improvise.
Being a good foreign language teacher requires familiarity with specific didactic theories and tecniques, as well as long experience.
It also requires thorough, time demanding PLANNING. No matter how many years I have been teaching Italian, I always prepare my SCHEME OF WORK to plan a term, as well as my LESSON PLAN to structure every session.
This also means selecting the best/most engaging teaching MATERIAL and NOT relying (simply) upon a text book.

As a teacher, I always consider the learner's NEEDS as my primary objective.
In particular:
- I listen to my students and calibrate my approach according to their personality;
- I identify and realise the potentials of individuals' abilities;
- I continuously learn from learners;
- I show them how to improve their lesser strenghts.

My classes greatly emphasise speaking & listening skills (tecnically called COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH), and are taught in a friendly, fun and relaxed atmosphere designed to enhance learning.

FEE
38 p/h: pupils up to 11 ys old coming to my home;
40 p/h: any other lesson at my home;

WHY LEARNING ITALIAN WITH ME
High specialization: - my degree, Humanities, is the only degree reconised in Italy to teach Italian language & Literature; -Pedagogy (the science of teaching) has been the subject of my university studies;

Long experience: I have been a Language teacher for nearly 20 years in well known establishments;
Cost effectivness: because of the above, the journey of learning is faster, more effective and appropriate;
Confidence & passion: I have high demands for myself as a professional, I master my subject and I know where I can lead my students.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, qualified and experienced teacher. I am a native German. I moved to the UK in 1991 just after meeting my future husband. We have three grown-up children, and education and parenthood have been very much part of our lives for many years.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in secondary schools and colleges in the UK for over 15 years as a German teacher and Head of German. I have conducted GCSE and A-level oral exams for the WJEC examination board, written several syllabuses for German GCSE and A-level groups and organised pupil exchange visits over 6 years. The academic work and pastoral care at the school I worked at was rated "excellent" by Estyn. At present, I am working at home with pupils who are eager to improve their grades at Key stage 3, GCSE and A-level, with adults who are relocating to Germany, and with architects, employees in the car industry and Financial advisers (Business German) who have business relations with Germany. I also teach children at primary level, who have moved to Britain from Germany and are keen to practise German with games, stories, songs and puppet theatre.

Tutoring Approach:

Language tuition has been my passion for a long time and allows me to be supportive and creative, motivating pupils and believing in their abilities. One-to-one tuition is very productive, because it adapts to the individual learner's needs easily. My experience in schools and with exams has given me the knowledge of standards required for GCSE and A-level exams, and many pupils have commented on how much improvement they have seen in their school work, and in their confidence, as a result of our lessons. My aim is to make language learning enjoyable, and therefore I always encourage a warm and relaxed atmosphere for lessons. My lessons are structured, integrating all four language skills speaking, listening, reading and writing, and also include grammar, pronunciation, games, video clips, and lots of authentic material and cultural knowledge.

Personal Description:
I'm a 24 Canadian teacher, now in my second year teaching in London. In addition to teaching, I take part in screenwriting, filmmaking, and online blogging.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently in my second year teaching in England. I have full grasp of the new English GCSE curriculum for both Language and Literature. I teach Years 7-11, to students of all abilities (including EAL and Gifted & Talented students). I am also a GCSE Media Studied teacher, with additional knowledge in Film Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I bring to every tutoring session the same levels of passion and enthusiasm that I exhibit on a daily basis in my classroom. I believe in hands-on learning, with understanding and appreciation of the material studied taking prominence to worrying about a grade or a level. I strongly believe that any student can excel, no matter their background or language, and that with passion and handwork, the desired grade is more than possible.
