Personal Description:
My name is Vanessa, I am from Spain and have been living in the UK for the past 9 years. I have been working as a teacher for 11 years and now I have decided to start tutoring so I can go back to studying.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a Modern Foreign Language teacher in Spain and worked in secondary schools in my country and in France. In 2007 I moved to the UK where I was awarded QTS and started as a supply teacher in primary until I became a full time Early Years and primary teacher. I have taught all years in primary, I am very familiar with the EYFS Early Learning Goals and the new National Curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

In all the years I have been teaching in primary I have seen many children who are below the average level of their class and children whose potential is not being appropriately exploited. My idea is to find the gaps in the foundations of their Maths and English (grammar, reading and writing) and help them close such gaps so those foundations are solid and can be built on, in the case of children who are not quite there yet. In the case of children who have the potential to achieve higher than average, my approach is to move them forward by identifying what the next steps are and providing them with activities that are challenging but achievable.
In my experience, with primary age children the most significant learning comes from hands on experience, hence my way of teaching and helping students always involve materials, games and activities that children can enjoy and explore as well as becoming the leaders of their own learning.

Personal Description:
After a career as a Communications Manager and having finished my PhD, I'm determined to commit myself completely to my professional vocation and teach Spanish as a foreign language full-time

I have a profound awareness of the language as a journalist, and specific training in public speaking in Spanish.

I recently completed the Specialist Training Course in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language given by the Department of Spanish and E/LE Teacher Training of International House Madrid.

Teaching Experience:

My experience as a teacher started 35 years ago, in 1981, when I obtained the Spanish Teaching Certificate for High School Education. From that time, I've been working continuously, full-time, part-time or voluntarily, as a teacher or tutor.

Throughout my professional life I've provided a great deal of private tuition in Spanish language in Madrid, Leeds and Edinburgh, and have worked as an assistant teacher in Spanish at several public high schools.

I've delivered over 350 courses to a wide range of organizations.

Tutoring Approach:

The best way to learn a language is to see it in context and have a necessity to use it. That is why I use as much as possible real people as my listening resources and expect my students to interact with other native speakers. My courses comprise theory classes where I look at listening, speaking and learning skills as well as increasing vocabulary; and cultural activities where those skills can be put into action.

The anonymous reviews by my students have been consistently very good, citing my knowledge, teaching methods, classroom organisation, willingness to learn new skills, and enthusiasm as highlights of the courses.

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.

I am a hard-working and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about teaching and modern foreign languages. Therefore, in addition to teaching French and Spanish in secondary schools, I have also started a language tuition business so that I can support people with their language learning and development of their linguistic skills.

- During my NQT year, I worked at a secondary school in Trowbridge where I taught Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and French to Key Stage 3.

- As part of my Spanish degree, I worked as an English Language Assistant in a school in Madrid for an academic year.

- I have worked part time as a tutor from the age of 16 teaching French, Spanish and English.

Personal Description:
My name is Annika and I am a student at the University of Surrey. I study Business Management and German BSc and have received the highest grade in all of my modules. I play football in the university team and have years of experience as a football referee. I am fluent in 5 languages: English, French, German, Spanish and Swedish, as well as learning a 6th one: Russian. I am Swedish but I have lived in many countries (Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, UK) throughout my life and gained insight to various cultures. I have 10 step siblings, ranging from 34 to 5 years old, and therefore am very comfortable in dealing with both young children, teenagers and adults. I also love music and play saxophone, piano and drums.

I have taught English to a French student in Spain for the past two years and been very pleased by his progress. I have been a football coach for 11 year old girls where I taught them various techniques and showed leadership.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly maths tutor local to Camborne, Falmouth and the surrounding area offering one-to-one tutoring to give extra support not often given in the classroom. I work full time as an design engineer, so I am available in the evenings and weekends. I teach up to GCSE level maths I have a 1st class masters degree in engineering. Whether you just need the occasional session to go over problem areas within the curriculum, or if you need regular study time, or even just help with homework, I am flexible depending on what the student needs. I can tutor at your home if you require, but I also offer tutoring from my own home, in a relaxed environment.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2 years experience working as a design engineer, applying my maths skills everyday. I have tutored on and off for 4 years teaching both maths and also offering guitar lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to try and understand what the student requires, and address these requirements specifically to give the best results. Should you need help on one aspect of the curriculum (people often shudder at the thought of algebra!), we can overcome the fear the y's and x's and master the topic. Should you need help keeping up in the classroom, or not understanding before the teacher moves on, we can take our time in the evening to make sure nothing has been missed. Should you need to get through an exam, we can make a study plan together to make sure you get the grade you want! I believe there is no 'one size fits all' to learning maths, and we can discuss all the details at your leisure.

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Jessica and I offer private German tuition. Whether for your GCSEs, A levels or an upcoming holiday, I can help you improve your language skills in a friendly, informal environment. Though born in the UK, I have strong German roots as my mum is German and I was brought up bilingually. I have an A* in GCSE German, an A in A level German (before they did A* for A level!) and a first class joint honours degree in French and German with distinction in spoken German from the University of Nottingham. I lived in Berlin for three years after my first degree, and go to visit family in the Black Forest region a couple of times a year. I am currently training as a Speech and Language Therapist via De Montfort University, so know too well what it means to learn and study for exams. I am DBS checked

I look forward to hearing from you.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a foreign language assistant in Trier, an English teacher in a Berlin Kindergarten and a Business English teacher in Paris, giving me valuable language teaching experience with children, adolescents and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I absolutely love Germany, the German language and German grammar - hopefully that enthusiasm comes across in my lessons. I ask that students tell me in advance what they would like to achieve from my tutoring, and always ensure I prepare accordingly. When teaching I like to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere, and welcome feedback at any point.

Personal Description:
Thanks for viewing my profile. I'm Jade, a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. I have language and teaching qualifications from China and the UK; and have more than 12 years experience of language teaching in both countries. I can provide patient tuition for learners of all age groups, from complete beginners, to experienced Mandarin speakers.

I love teaching, and use a range of learning materials, and approaches. I should be able to develop solutions to problems and find the way that works best for you.

Teaching Experience:

I have provided tuition in Mandarin Chinese to many native English speakers since I moved to the UK in 2014. My learners have been mostly adults and from various backgrounds, but also children and teenagers. They have included those learning for professional or academic reasons, and those simply interested in Chinese language and culture. Several have been having regular weekly or twice-weekly lessons with me for more than a year.
I have gained experience of the British educational system and teaching methods through acting as a volunteer teaching assistant in a college with modern language expertise. I have also studied for an Education and Training Award. Insights gained from this inform the approaches to teaching that I adopt.
In China, I worked at two language training schools in Harbin over a three-year period, and then I moved to Beijing. Here I taught children and teenagers for a year, and then for the next five years worked in a company that provided language training and IESOL tests to adults. I am now able to draw from my teaching experience in both countries when providing tuition in Mandarin.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my teaching to satisfy the individual needs of learners. This involves taking account of their reasons for learning Mandarin and their aspirations, and the learning styles that work best for them. Rather than stick rigidly to a standard course, I will vary the approaches to maintain interest and help with the learning process. Techniques can include question and answer sessions, use of flashcards, role-play, games, presentations, audio-visual materials and handouts.
If you are interested in learning Chinese, please contact me.

Q. How long do lessons last?

A. Each lesson lasts for one hour, for one and a half hours, or for two hours. For children under 10 years old, each lesson will last 45 minutes.

Q. Where do you teach?

A. I teach from home or via Skype.

Q. How do I pay the tuition?

A. Please pay by cash in advance. There will be a small discount if you pay for several lessons at once (more than five hours).

Q. Do you cater for advanced students?

A. Yes. If you speak Mandarin already and would like to brush up your skills, or gain a more advanced understanding, then I can design a course appropriate for you.

Q. Is it possible to book sessions outside of office hours?

A. Yes. Please contact me to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Q. Do you provide group-training sessions?

A. Yes. Please call for details.

Q. Do you teach online?

A. Yes. I also teach via Skype, QQ, WeChat.

Q. Do you provide telephone based training?

A. Yes. Please contact for details.
