Personal Description:
Former business journalist, Sky News editor, international conference producer in Moscow, Russian-English interpreter and now teacher & private tutor. Russian and French degree from UCL with teacher training (Kingston University) experience in French, Spanish and Latin (ages 11-18)). I also specialise in numeracy and literacy, helping young children and adults gain an A-C grade in their GCSEs.
I love working with children (I have students as young as 7) and adults alike and have plenty of materials, worksheets and textbooks for languages as well as mathematics and English as a Foreign Language/TOEIC/Citizenship tests
(PS: I have a great talent for working with children or adults who find it difficult to concentrate and showing them how to not only learn but also REMEMBER :D)

Teaching Experience:

Many years as an English teacher to foreign children, students and Russian businessmen and two years in a secondary school teaching modern languages to children aged 11-18. I have a great record of working with children who have ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspberger's and other learning "difficulties" (I like to call them learning differences:-)) Due to my ability to get "difficult" children to enjoy their lessons by learning their way, I was asked by my school to work with Year 11 children in the school"s EBD unit one-on-one in order to ensure they get an A-C grade in their GCSE English and maths exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Although very serious and focused on results, I do understand that everyone has their own approach to learning and my best skill is in introducing a range of learning techniques and study skills (some of them are even fun ;-)) to the student that they can use across all subjects! I have a special talent for working with a different range of students, especially those who are very bright/intelligent but who have difficulty retaining/remembering information

Personal Description:
I am a native French speaker. I am friendly, approachable, patient and non-judgemental. I am passionate about French and English literature. I speak and write a good standard of English and French. I have successfully completed the course PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) (Level 4) at Strode College, Somerset. This is really useful in my role as a tutor.
I studied Philosophy and French literature up to the Baccalauréat in Brittany. I graduated in Brest University where I passed a degree (Deug) in English and American literature, English Grammar, linguistics, Phonetics, translation from English into French and vice-versa. The degree also included American and English History. I have the level of Licence in the same fields as above. I have an up-to-date DBS certificate ( May 2013).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a full time private tutor for over three years now and enjoy this very much. I help teenagers improve their grades for GCSE French and I also successfully prepare students for A levels. My experience involves working with adult and teenage students. Sessions are tailored to the specific needs of students such as someone needing to speak French for work. My work with GCSE students involves explaining from scratch the main points of grammar and guiding their pronunciation so students can perform better for oral and listening exams. At the moment, I am helping a student study the novel Madame Bovary more in depth. This is in preparation for the entry to University. This involves weekly sessions where I prepare questions in French for my student. I expect the student to prepare answers in French. We discuss in French the style of the novelist, the main themes, the protagonists, the plot etc. I spend time carefully preparing sessions with the view of increasing the fluency of students. In the course of the school year 2012-2013 I taught English (via skype) to one of my nieces and she achieved good grades in English for her Baccalaureat. At the same time, I also helped an A level student to study Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. I chose excerpts from the novel and prepared questions for the student. When we met, in addition to going through the prepared questions and analysis, I focused on the pronunciation, grammar and spelling plus vocabulary. I truly enjoy seeing my students improve their confidence in spoken and written French. I can help adults brush on their French or learn the language from a beginner's level up to an advanced level.
One of my students from Wales, Anne wrote: I would highly recommend Annie as a tutor to anyone learning French. She really knows her stuff - not just as a native French speaker but as a teacher who is tuned in to where a learner has problems and knowledge gaps. She is very helpful in supplying the information that you don't get in the textbooks and in providing insights into both written and spoken French. Add to that friendliness and a sense of humour and you have everything you could ask for in an expert language tutor.
Kate from Blagdon wrote this:
"Annie has a natural talent for teaching her native tongue. However, she backs this up with a useful knowledge of grammatical terms and rules, whilst also ensuring that the student is 'au fait' with colloquial French, both spoken and written. She has a knack of emphasizing the positive and endless patience when it comes to ensuring that the student has fully understood the point, as well as forgiving when s/he has (I have) forgotten it once again! Annie is both reasonable and flexible with a warm personality and a nice sense of humour. I have not a moment's hesitation in recommending that she become your French teacher if you are based in or near Glastonbury."
Rosie from Wells, Somerset: 'Annie is a very good French teacher, she is kind, smart, patient. My French has improved just after a few lessons and I really look forward to our next session together'.
The following is a comment by another student,Neil:' Our conversational French sessions are focused but flexible. Either of us can suggest a topic to talk about and we have covered a wide range of subjects. Annie writes a lot of useful notes as we go along. I take these away and regularly refer to them, they are great for revision. I like the fact that Annie can tell me what the French would really say as opposed to what it says in the dictionary. Importantly, we enjoy a laugh'.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to discuss with my students to know exactly what the students want to get from the lessons. I keep in mind that each student has different goals and motives to learn the language. I draw a learning plan to guide the students and myself. My tutoring sessions are tailor-made as students are different with different learning styles. I think it is important that students make progress and for this I think it is also important that the atmosphere be pleasant so I do like it when my students are enjoying their learning and progressing.

I like to focus on the pronunciation so students can be understood properly by French native speakers. It does make things easier for students when they travel to France or if they want to work there, for instance. I focus on the pronunciation, grammar,vocabulary and spelling. I truly enjoy seeing my students improve their confidence in spoken and written French, I also provide tips regarding modern spoken French. While tutoring to beginners, I find that it is important to offer to students a good grasp of grammar as this enables students to start constructing little useful sentences on their own. I correct students on their pronunciation to give them a good start. I am aware that everyone is different and consequently I tend to teach according to the needs of each student. I have an up-to-date DBS certificate ( May 2013).

Personal Description:
I 've been teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) for the past 6 years, both as a Homestay Host and one-to-one lessons for individuals needing additional help in understanding the English that we speak I incorporate cultural awareness in my lessons and particularly enjoy helping with pronunciation and intonation. I believe how you say something is as important as what you say. You won't just be learning Grammar and the curriculum we follow will be set by your needs. I hold a B.Sc. in Education from Temple University, Phila, Pa USA and have been a UK resident for over 30 years. I also hold a Trinity College London (CertTESOL) diploma from Universal Language Training, Woking. Previously, I have worked for large multi-national companies (American Express, Owners Abroad ) and was an International Training Manager for Continental Airlines (now United Airlines) where I taught airline system management to classes of multi-national adults. I particularly enjoy one-to-one teaching whether in person or online(SKYPE), as the effort and energy involved produces real results in a relatively short time. I'm a 'people person' and enjoy sharing my knowledge of the English language and customs and making it fun to boot!

Tutoring Approach:

One-to-One tutoring gives a real insight into both the English language that we speak and English culture. It is tailored specifically to the individual needs of the student rather than follow any particular textbook. We are free to concentrate on those areas where you may need the most help. Being able to spend time on pronunciation, stress and intonation are areas where one-to-one teaching really comes into its own as well as learning about the English that is actually spoken. Learning/perfecting a new language does not need to be a painful process. A professional, friendly approach in comfortable surroundings is what one-to-one teaching is all about!

Personal Description:
I'm a certified teacher working as an online tutor for students in Norfolk and Suffolk. In university I had the opportunity to study a variety of subjects, including English, psychology, history and statistics. I'm able to tutor children, adolescents and adults in the following subjects and levels:

English/Literacy for Key Stages 1-3, GCSE and A-Level.
Maths for Key Stages 1-3.

Psychology (GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate)
History (KS3 and GCSE)

IT/Computing (Primary, KS3 & adults)
English as a Second Language (for adults)

Currently I offer all of my tuition online, mainly via Skype. I also make use of an online whiteboard for maths lessons, and occasionally for English grammar.

See the "Subject Taught" section below for rates per subject and level. Computing/IT and English as a Second Language for adults are set at a discounted rate.

Don`t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Teaching Experience:

In the UK, I have experience tutoring for two years in London, Surrey and East Anglia. I've also tutored students for four years across a number of Canadian universities, such as the University of Toronto.

Tutoring Approach:

For younger students, I assess them on their first appointment to see where their strengths and weaknesses are. I then focus the lessons on the areas they need improvement in, using an individualized approach that is suitable for that particular student. I also help students prepare for examinations, such as the GCSE; in this case I mostly focus on giving them tasks and questions that resemble what they will face on their tests.

For A-level and degree students, I'm usually asked to provide assistance with a specific task. For example, I've helped my students construct outlines in order to structure their essays, answer typical questions that will come up on their exams, and proof read their essays to check content, clarity and grammar. I can also clarify theories that are difficult to understand and help students generate ideas for their thesis.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my undergraduate studies with a First in History at the university of Kent. I have always been committed to my academic career, being amongst the highest-attaining students at both school and university. I am a voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction; aside from this I enjoy films, rugby union and competitive gaming.

I enjoy helping people to learn and develop, and would be happy to help tutees with specific exams or assignments, to provide more general advice on techniques and skills, help tutees achieve a deeper understanding of a subject or offering. I have experience of proofreading and editing at university level.

Teaching Experience:

I attended sixth-form at Chancellor's School in Brookmans Park, which ran a programme in which students assisted with the teaching of a lower-school class, as well as a "buddy system", where sixth-formers mentored and assisted 3 new students with transition to senior school.

At university I strove to take an active part in my education in both university-organised and extra-curricular activities. I was frequently commended for my contributions to seminars and I often joined study-groups on my own initiative, helping others with their understanding of the various courses and with exam technique. I also frequently aided other students by proof-reading and editing their essays and assignments, to help them better apply the technique and style that was needed to attain the highest grades.

I am the Vice-President of ISHA (the International Students of History Association). This organisation arranges events to bring history students from across Europe together; participants take part in workshops, presenting papers then hosting a debate on the points raised by their work. I enjoyed these events immensely, not only for the opportunity to learn from and to teach students from varied backgrounds with differing approaches towards the study of history, but also for the support and the opportunity for development that they offer to students. I also helped edit ISHA's journal 'Carnival'. As well as giving me valuable skills in teaching, discussion and presentation of ideas, ISHA also gave me valuable experience of academic interaction with people for whom English is not their first language, teaching me to to alter my vocabulary and forms of expression to better convey ideas.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on my own experiences of studying and helping other students at school and university. I aim to teach exam technique and preparation advice, alongside essay-writing skills and time management. I have broad knowledge of English and History and can supplement other teaching to create a strong base of understanding to help tutees achieve desired grades. I also feel it is worth-while to go beyond the syllabus, as unusual, but pertinent, information can be the determining factor in pushing a candidate up a grade barrier.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a very friendly and easy- going person who will go the extra mile in every way. I have a good sense of humour and get on well with people of all ages. I'm very enthusiastic and outgoing. I love learning new things and this comes through in any teaching that I do.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching primary aged children for 5 years and am now lead of English. I have raised standards in reading and writing in both my current school and past schools by leading English.

I have A's in A-level English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Whilst I did not choose to teach this age as a career, I have recently tutored in physics where my 'tutee's' predicted grade has risen from a D to 4 marks off an A, in just 11 weeks!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a thorough and comprehensive understanding of how both children and adults learn- I am quick to gauge different learning styles and therefore sessions will be individualised in their approach. I will bring personalised resources and provide extra work in between sessions if this would be welcomed. I will ensure that rapid and quick progress is made. I always go the extra mile, I love teaching and will do everything within my power to ensure success!

Personal Description:
I am a postgraduate student from Beijing and currently studying MA in Theatre in the University of York. It has been an exciting journey leaning English since I was a child and I believe I am able to help people who share the same passion about Mandarin now.

Teaching Experience:

I have always paid extra attention to how my tutors were teaching me, both in English and Mandarin; and I have applied the same method to explain course materials to my friends who needed help. I am confident that with my level of English and Mandarin, I can communicate with the students without language barrier, and provide the help needed for them to speak Mandarin fluently.

Tutoring Approach:

Personal Description:
With 7 years teaching and tutoring experience at A-Level, GCSE, iGCSE, undergraduate university level and IB, I have helped tutor over 50 private students alongside my job as a full-time classroom teacher.

I am patient and build confidence in my students, highlighting areas for improvement and encouraging progression. I tailor my teaching to suit the need of my students, considering prior knowledge, confidence, English ability and style of learning in my approach.

With a masters in Mathematics Education, and as someone who now trains teachers, I have an up-to-date understanding on teaching and changes in the National Curriculum (particularly with the new GCSEs and A-level). This enables me to be ahead of the game with knowing about teaching and learning developments, government policy in education, and other issues that affect students' experiences of mathematics.

Teaching Experience:

I have specialist teaching experience with girls aged 11 to 18, as well as with students who have English as an additional language (although have tutored a wide range of students, from primary boys aged 9, up to undergraduate students aged 19). I have been head of department in my previous place of work, as well as head of year, so understand the needs of students in maths, as well as holistically.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is informed by my teaching strategies in the classroom. I try to pre-assess students in order to understand where their current knowledge of mathematics is, work with the student to build a plan in order to fill in any gaps in their knowledge, and help them achieve their goals in a time frame agreed upon with the student and parents. I then evaluate the student's learning informally each session, through verbal feedback and worked problems. I generally model technique through worked examples, as well as creating my own problems based on past papers in order to prepare students for the demands of examination. Throughout the process I ensure that students are encouraged and enjoy learning mathematics, and build confidence in their ability so they feel they can (and want to) achieve.
