Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and experienced teacher of Modern Foreign Languages. I have taught in a school near Wakefield for 8 years and have been a private tutor for five years. I am a very enthusiastic and approachable teacher. I can offer languages teaching in French, Spanish, German, Italian and Japanese. I offer teaching at all levels; primary languages, with a view to possibly taking GCSE examinations early, Key stage 3, GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A2 levels and adult languages classes. I also cover the new GCSE and A-level specifications for exams in 2018. I have experience in all areas of languages teaching and I throughly enjoy teaching languages!

I also work for 3 distance learning schools, as a tutor for French and Spanish. I am Lead Tutor for one school and also carrying out consultancy work for the new A-level exam. I teach students from all over the world which is a real honour.

I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to take the language of their choice. Therefore, I am happy to offer to help students take a GCSE or A level in a language which may not be available in their school. I can help with assessments and speaking tests in addition to a high standard of tuition to learn the language at the desired level and beyond.

I am currently learning Chinese as it has always interested me and as a teacher, I know that I need to remember what it is like to be a language learner!

References are available upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE and QTS qualification in Modern Languages and as part of my studies, I taught in two schools in North Yorkshire. I have been a teacher in a Specialist Language College near Wakefield for 8 years and a private tutor for 2 years. As a teacher in a Specialist Language College, I have taught KS3 and GCSE languages in addition to working in the community, teaching languages at local Primary Schools and carrying out Adult language classes.

For my private tuition, I have taught many A-level students in addition to primary students, GCSE students and adult learners. I have found this to be very interesting to see how people learn in different ways and develop their confidence in learning a new language or gaining extra support for language learning.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I always check to see what level each student is at in the first lesson. All lessons are tailored to the students' needs so you can get the most out of learning a language. I recommend useful resources and I am happy to lend books and DVDs from the extensive range of resources I have built up as a result of tutees' wishes. I have an excellent knowledge of the national curriculum and exam specifications of all the boards and I keep up-to-date with the many changes which may occur in education.

I look at all language skills although I may focus on one or two particular areas if this is what the tutee needs (such as listening and speaking if exams were not to be taken). I use ICT in my lessons and use many different websites and encourage students to use these at home and I help with grammar, even if it is the basics, as an understanding of this is essential to learning a language successfully!

I set homework tasks each week for students and I also offer a 'mid lesson service', where students can Skype or Phone so that I can check on progress or answer any questions. A quick chat in the target language is fine too! This service is free. I am also happy to answer any texts on the language- that is what I'm here for!

All new students are welcome. I always answer all requests so please also check spam folders just in case!
Plase note that there is a slightly cheaper rate for students wanting daytime teaching sessions.
merci, gracias, grazie, danke, arigatou!

Personal Description:
I am a computer science graduate and have over 10 experience working within the IT sector as a programmer, Systems Analyst, Business Analyst, Database Developer and then as an IT consultant. Having worked in at least 6 different companies including the NHS, I currently work with a major Bank as a Business/Systems Analyst and Data Architect. As an Analyst and Architect, I am very methodical and logical in my thinking, which always helps when breaking down a problem to people (students) new to the concept. I am currently also studying for my MSc in Data Science.

I'm a very friendly and caring person and have lots of experience of working and interacting with young people in an educational context. I am forward thinking and very creative in finding better ways to explain new concepts to students.

I have experience of working with 1st year to MSc IT students. This usually involves tutoring around concepts not well understood, tutoring to help you start/progress/complete complex assignment and dissertation/thesis.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many students ranging from 1st Year to Masters students over the past 8 years leading to usually very positive outcomes. Over this time I have supported students on 3 undergraduate dissertations, 2 masters thesis and on numerous assignments and IT Topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very flexible and ready to adapt to make sure that each student gets the most of any teaching session. I understand the fact that each student is different with different pace of learning and understanding. It is with this that I take my time to understand the student in order to optimize the learning experience. I do encourage feedback from my students to make sure that they are happy with the learning.
I am flexible with the teaching session location and I do own my own transport. Also I am flexible as I can do online teaching. Using school text books or lecture notes/slides is my preferred approach as this does not conflict with anything that has already been taught to the student in school or university.

Personal Description:
I can provide tuition in a wide range of Economics and Business related subjects e.g. Marketing, Accounting, HRM. I live in the Bournemouth area but am willing to travel to provide tuition and I am also able to provide Skype/e-mail tuition for those students who live a long distance from me. I will also provide references from past students, reflecting the value added I can offer you, in order that your grades will improve. I am able to help anyone at any level, from GCSE up to Masters and beyond.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and lecturing for over 25 years and have accumulated much experience which I am able to pass on to my students. One of the key benefits I can offer you as a student is providing critical analysis and evaluation when completing your assignments. This is extremely important for grading and often means the difference between a 2:1 and 2:2 or higher. For the dissertation it is fundamental, but even in year one and for Foundation degrees it is essential. I will thus ensure all your coursework is focussed, adheres to the assignment grading spec and includes critical analysis and evaluation.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide specialised and comprehensive notes which will assist you in your learning. I can give coursework or assignment help (planning, writing, editing, suggesting improvements etc) and assistance with your exam preparation. If you live a long distance away you can e-mail your assignments/coursework to me for editing and improvements. I will then e-mail them back to you with the improvements. I am also able to help you via Skype if you live a long distance from me. So even if you do not live in Bournemouth I am still able to help you.

Personal Description:
I am a BA (Hons) Education Studies Graduate (University of Derby) and I am applying for this position to help me support myself and to enable me to gain further experience and insight into the world of private tuition and to progress further professionally. I have completed a vast amount of work experience in the past and worked with a variety of different types of people and I feel that having had this exposure, I can relate well to people at all levels, and that I have good communication skills and a constructive approach to learning and improving my abilities. I consider myself to be loyal and reliable and believe my enthusiasm to work will make me a valuable asset to the work place. I have now completed the Masters in Education (Special Needs Pathway) I am looking forward to share my knowledge and teaching experience with those that require the help.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tuition - Started September 2011.
I am currently tutoring numerous students, covering key stages 1, 2, 3 and 4

School Experience:
Dale Primary School October 2010 - December 2011
I spent time working alongside young children between the ages of 9 to 11. I circulated between the different ability groups, within the classroom, in order to develop an understanding of the different requirements that needed to be met and to gain an understanding of the needs of each individual within the classroom. I undertook small tasks such as talking to children individually about their work and listening to them read as well as marking work

Mickleover Primary School January 2009 - February 2010
I spent time working alongside children between the ages of 7 to 9. I worked with several different ability areas, working with them in a group and also individually and I was able to gain a great insight into the requirements of different children and the flexibility needed within the classroom. I also gained some experience in learning how to plan a lesson and some experience with having direct input within the classroom. I had various other jobs such as listening to children read, sorting out and marking homework and classwork and photocopying work for distribution.

Tutoring Approach:

I work very closely to the curriculum and have an unlimited use of resources for English, Maths and Science at Key Stages 1, 2, 3 & 4 (GCSE). I implement a variety of timed activities to monitor progress and establish focus points. I would work along the lines of the school work they are currently doing, while providing the extra help, resources and activities to enable them to flourish at school as well as helping them work towards achieving the best possible results in tests and formal examinations.

Personal Description:
I am a Head of Mathematics working in a Birmingham high school. Therefore I have vast experience of teaching mathematics, particularly at GCSE level, including the new specification. I am an Honours Graduate from Liverpool John Moores University (BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance), and I have completed an extensive Mathematics course at Liverpool Hope University. This provided me with the knowledge and ability to teach up to A-Level Mathematics, including all Core modules but also Mechanics, Statistics and Decision mathematics. I am an accredited One-to-One Tutor after successfully completing a tuition course, approved by the Teachers Development Agency, and I have been offering private tuition for a few years now. I have a full enhanced CRB (entitling me to work with children under 18), in place which can be produced upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach mathematics to GCSE level in a 'Good' C of E High School in Birmingham where I am Head of Mathematics. I have been providing one-to-one and small group turning on since 2009. This has been with pupils aged 11 and upwards. In my teaching career I have been closely linked to intervention groups to provide tuition style teaching, in terms of exam preparation, in order to help the pupils meet the grades that they are capable of. This has been for GCSE and A Level exams. I have also had experience of tutoring college students (studying various subjects) for help with assignments that have a mathematic element. Additionally, I have been employed by other schools, over school holidays, to tutor their under-performing exam pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to one-to-one tuition is always to begin with identifying the pupil's areas of strengths and weaknesses and using this information to set targets that are in-line with the aim of the tuition sessions. I like to offer a relaxed and friendly learning environment, where a good working relationship can be established. I aim to build the student's confidence in the subject and their ability. I always come well prepared to my lessons, with a variety of resources and teaching techniques along with personal learning objectives for each session. These strategies are used to enthuse, stimulate and educate the student in order to make the relevant progression for that individual. There is always a clear line of progression from one lesson to the next as well as an appropriate pace within each lesson. I have high expectations of all my students and always encourage a pupil to make the most out of every session and achieve the best they can.

  • Maths
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi, I have always had a love for languages and would love to instil you with the same enthusiasm. After having lived abroad as part of my degree, I then graduated with a BA Hons Degree Class 2.1 in Modern Languages (German, French and Italian), after which I obtained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). After teaching, I also worked for International companies, using my languages extensively by liaising with customers and colleagues overseas and also translating and interpreting. I have always kept my languages fresh by reading foreign literature and keeping in touch with German / French friends. I am mother to 4 children, but even after my children were born, I continued to do some freelance translation. As a mother and as a teacher, I know the importance of patience and how important it is to make learning worthwhile, enjoyable and fun!

Teaching Experience:

After qualifying as a Languages teacher, I have taught German and French in a Comprehensive School to the 11-18 age group. I have tutored teenagers and adults privately in both German and French. I have also provided French classes in one of the International companies I worked for.

Tutoring Approach:

I can offer a learning program which is specifically tailored to suit the individuals needs, whatever the level of knowledge or ability. If required, lessons can be adapted to focus on specific areas such as grammar or conversation practice. My experience in using languages in a business setting also means that I am also well placed to teach lanuages to adults for business purposes. I am a perfectionist and will strive to offer the best tuition possible, by thorough preparation and the use of a variety of learning materials and approaches. If required homework can be set to consolidate knowledge learnt. I want your learning to be productive and engaging. It can open a window into foreign culture and soon you will realise how much fun it is to be able to communicate in another language.

Personal Description:
Human Resource and Human Resource Management are the area of my expertise and this is something I am very passionate about. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this subject and I enjoy working with students at college and university level. I also teach business studies and its relationship to HRM at degree level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and working in Human Resource Management for around 35 years. I have worked at Nottingham Trent University and University of Derby. I have also worked in Universities outside of the the UK.

Also I am currently a PhD Assessor.

I have been tutoring students for many years and it is often a case of panic rather than a desperate need to improve their academic ability that drives them to seek professional help and academic support.

Whatever your reasons I am able to assist you manage your work, your assignments and your dissertation. Not all sessions are paid for there is a fair about of goodwill on my part to continue to be your anchor during your challenging moments in the lecture room.

 Social Science Studies
 Youth and Social Work

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different when it comes to learning. Some students enjoy 1 to 1 and some students love group learning. My approach is to create an individual style for each student and work with you to meet your learning needs.

The key to any success is READING and then having the opportunity to discuss the subject in detail to analyse the the debate.

In addition to this, it is important to develop skills and understanding of your subject area so that you are aware of the key areas of policy and theory and how theory is applied to policy in the real world.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher of English for over 10 years and have worked in the UK, Japan, UAE, Qatar and Italy. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to experience different cultures and education. I worked in British International Schools that all followed the British Curriculum.
I have a great passion and enthusiasm for my subject and I love to share this with my students. I hope I can make a difference and help those who have potential but are currently lacking confidence and under achieving. With support they are able to meet their own expectations.

Teaching Experience:

An experienced English teacher of 9 years. In this time I have been head of department and KS3 Co-ordinator. I have a thorough knowledge of many examination boards and I have also been a marker. I have a good understanding of the curriculum and how to achieve the required levels/grades.

I have recently learned that the students I tutored last term (academic year 2014-2015) all gained C and above in English Language and Literature. This is a reflection of my input but more so the dedication and motivation of my tutees. I am very proud of their commitment and hard work.

Tutoring Approach:

I think tuition should not be thought of by the student as extra homework but more one of support and advice. It is the opportunity to have one to one lessons in a safe and comfortable environment. My approach is positive , tailored to the needs of each student and relevant.

Personal Description:
I am a dynamic tutor who aims to inspire, stimulate and motivate.

I have three years of tutoring experience in both primary and secondary English. I graduated with a double first in History from Queen Mary, University of London.

I have over three years of tutoring experience in primary and secondary English, from five years upwards.

Tutoring Approach:

For me, it is most important that a student feels confident and comfortable as a basis for progressing academically. I aim to put students at ease and help them believe in themselves, ultimately working towards reaching their full potential.

Personal Description:
I have been studying a Product Desin course for the last 2 years, I am now transferring to do a BA in Secondary School Mathematics, and after 2 years of that I will be a qualified and working maths teacher.
I am currently taking a gap year to prepare for my studies, this has given me the oppertunity to get hands on with my teaching, and do as much maths tutoring as possible.
Mathematics has always been a passion of mine and as my ability has progressed, I've taken the oppertunity to teach Common Entrance, GCSE and A level students to prepare them for their upcoming exams. Over my years of providing maths tuition I have gained plenty of knowledge, experience, and fulfillment in what I do.
I am happy to provide tuition over skype and I will charge less for that.
Face to face will be a lot more progressive, I'm happy to travel but depending on the distance I may charge extra to cover the cost of fuel.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching became a passion of mine from a young age, I was involved with CCF (cadet force) for five years and teaching the younger cadets became an import role for me.
Since then I have been doing teaching observation in different schools and working with children aged 5 to 11 on holiday camps.
I have been providing one to one, or group tuition since the age of 17. At first I worked as an assistant for group tuition sessions during holiday periods. Now my role in these group sessions is to give 1 or 2 students extra attention, or cover for the leading tutor if he is not there. This year I have been able to carry out plenty of 1 to 1 tuition, as an indepent tutor. Every one of my students so far have achieved the grades they where hoping for, or better. Some students where predicted as low as an E at school, and achieved A grades in there exams after doing private tuition with me. From this, I truly believe that every student deseveres as much 1 to 1 attention that they can get.

Tutoring Approach:

As an experienced tutor, I have gained a range of personal teaching methods. My first aim is to understand the level and ability of my student, and figure out exactly where and what there learning difficulties are. Every student learns in there own way, especially for a subject like mathematics and therefore it is essential for me to find out how the student is progressing and to cater to there needs.
Throughout my sessions I challange my students with questions that they are likley to see in there upcoming exam. I encourage them to identify the problem infront of them, and then use there own method to overcome it. This may be a method I have taught them, but it must be a method that works for them.
If my students have little or no understanding of a certain topic, I have plenty of pre prepared lessons, and I will be very enthussiastic to teach them something new.
I often set homework based on the topics covered in the lesson. Usually 30 mins max of practice for them to do later that evening to refresh there memory on what they have learnt.

Personal Description:
Ciao! I'm Marco, I am a native Italian speaker and I live in Cardiff. I have been teaching Italian in this town for about six months at different levels, from beginners to advanced. I offer 1:1 or 1:2 private lessons, travelling to people's houses and I am also available to teach small groups of students of any age.

Teaching Experience:

I have two years experience in teaching English at different levels in Italy. I have been teaching Italian for about 6 months in Cardiff, at the moment I teach a small group of people, in which my lessons are focused on grammar and conversation, and I also give 1:1 private classes every week.

Tutoring Approach:

I adapt the content from one lesson to another to meet people's needs. What really matters is that students realise that they make progress , and that they have fun while learning.
I love teaching and I do my best to make people enjoy my lessons.
