Personal Description:
Hi there,

My name is Jean-Charles. I am a 29-year-old French male. I have been living, studying and working in the UK for more than two years. I worked as a chef two years ago, as a French assistant last year and as a trainee-teacher this year when studying the PGCE French with Spanish. I am now a qualified teacher and I work in a comprehensive school near Reading.
Before coming to the UK, I studied philosophy and French language and literature at the Université de Strasbourg. I have a very good knowledge of French literature and grammar and it has been very helpful to my past tutees.

I am easy-going and I adapt myself easily. One of my favourite hobbies is speaking foreign languages and discovering new cultures.

Teaching Experience:

In Reading:
I have been teaching French in a comprehensive school to pupils aged from 11 to 18.

In Liverpool:
I have been tutoring a mature student to improve her speaking from January 2012.
As part of my PGCE, I taught French from Y7 to Y13 and Spanish up to Y9 from October 2011 to 2012.

In Grimsby:
As a French assistant, from November 2010 to May 2011, I helped primary and secondary students with their French on a one-to-one basis, in small groups and I also taught lessons to whole classes.

In Bolton:
I taught French language -grammar and literature- to a mature-student retired from teaching from October 2009 to March 2010. (testimonial available)

In Strasbourg:
I gave lessons in French to a 16-year-old girl in Strasbourg in the summer 2010.
I also helped two primary school pupils with their homework from 2007 to 2011.

Tutoring Approach:

As I strongly believe that languages and cultures come together, I always strive to work on authentic material and I also give my tutees many opportunities to learn in out of tution context in order to develop their cultural knowledge.

However, for me the most important in teaching is to meet the needs of learners. Therefore, my priority is first of all to assess the needs of my tutees. Tutees may want to develop only some of the 4 skills: speaking, listening, reading, or writing, depending on the use they want to make of French. They also may have particular topics they want to work on, functions of their needs, projects or tastes.

This student-led approach must be carried on throughout the lessons. The role of the tutor is to maximise opportunities for the learner to discover things by themselves because this is the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn.

Last but not least, languages are interesting and fun at the same time. They develop thinking skills as well as they provide entertainment. My tutoring reflects this philosophy. This is why I always try to alternate entertainment and thinking time during the lessons.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and enjoy teaching all subjects, in particular maths and literacy. I strive to make learning interactive and fun for children and get a lot of satisfaction from helping children to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher and work mainly with 7-11 year olds. Prior to qualifying I worked for several years as a teaching assistant, often working on a one-to-one basis with children. I have a good range of teaching methods which I use to help children develop their knowledge and learning skills. I am able to build strong relationships with children, encouraging and leading them to become confident, independent learners. In addition to primary teaching I also have experience of teaching GCSE maths and level 2 adult maths.

Tutoring Approach:

All children are individuals and learn in different ways. I would undertake an initial assessment for your child and tailor lessons accordingly. I will always look at what children can do and work with them to discover the gaps in their knowledge and any misconceptions they may have. I feel it is important to set achievable targets and build up children's confidence in their own abilities. Linking the teaching of literacy and maths to other subjects and real life situations makes learning more meaningful to children.

Personal Description:
I am currently the Music Specialist and Music Co-ordinator at a Kensington Independent Sixth Form College. As well as having a strong knowledge of the usual teaching materials, I have also painstakingly collected a number of my own academic resources in order that I might teach the EDEXCEL A and AS level courses as fully and comprehensively as possible. I have provided a selection of my relevant teaching resources at my personal website (google 'Sam Leak'),under the heading 'teaching resources', so that you may view them. The depth, clarity and relevance of this information should be immediately clear. I have a great depth of musical knowledge and a strong acquaintance with the EDEXCEL syllabus. Thus I feel I am well-equipped to tutor any student wishing to learn the EDEXCEL AS or A Level syllabus with me.


(At my website you will find selected notes under the following headings: "Anton Webern - Quartet Op.22 - Movement 1", "Michael Tippett - Concerto For Double String Orchestra-mvmnt 1", "Haydn, Bruckner, Dowland, Bach", and "Luciano Berio - Sequenza III for female voice" (+Reduction/Score Analyses) )

Teaching Experience:

I am currently the Music Specialist and Music Co-ordinator at a Kensington Independent Sixth Form College. I am also an experienced instrumental teacher (piano), having trained up students for entry to various conservatoires - previous students of mine are now attending The Royal Academy Of Music, Leeds College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire and Trinity College of Music. Alongside having a vast experience of private teaching, I have worked for The Aylesbury Music Centre (Head of Jazz Piano), Brent Music Service, Northcote Lodge School and The Richmond Music Trust. I am CRB cleared for my current teaching positions. I have also recently attended and completed a Child Protection and Safeguarding conference.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer highly structured lessons that are very informative and are aimed at the specific requirements of individual students. Though the teaching process is clearly goal orientated, I aim where possible to help my students to understand the required exam-related materials through a genuine and deep musical and historical understanding.

Personal Description:
For the last eight years I have been have been teaching geography at KS3, GCSE and A level in north and west London. I am currently employed as a Head of Geography in an Outstanding secondary school in west London.

My personal strengths include excellent lesson planning and creation of resources and vast subject knowledge. This is supported by my 'outstanding' review in my most recent lesson observation. I also work As an examiner giving me a greater understanding of the exam board requirements in order to best support the students that I work with, I have used these skills to help students achieve outstanding grades for their controlled assessments and help students become more self-motivated and prepared for later life.

Teaching Experience:

Secondary Head of Geography (Sept 2009 - present)
I am currently employed as a Head of Geography in an outstanding comprehensive school in West London.

Examiner
I have marked GCSE geography papers for Edexcel for the past 4 years

Private Tutor (2009-2011)
I have tutored a number of students in both Geography and Maths and helped them to achieve results that exceeded their expectations.

EFL Teacher (2007-2008)
After completing my undergraduate I took a CELTA course to teach English as a foreign language. I lived in Vietnam for a year where I was employed as a full-time EFL teacher. I taught young learners between the ages of 6 and 18. These were further broken up into 3 different age groups and 7 different ability levels. I have also taught English to adults at a number of summer schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I think that it is really important to plan the tuition sessions to fit the needs of my individual student and I am committed the achievement of every student that I tutor. Working as a teacher in a 11-18 Secondary School means that I have access to a wealth of teaching resources and I am constantly learning new techniques to bring the best out of my students. I also work as an examiner for the Edexcel exam board with gives me a valuable insight into the exam expectation. I have been particularly successful when using past papers to help identify areas for improvement and I use a range of strategies to improve exam technique so that students are able to achieve to their full potential. My most recent turee achieved an A* in his geography GCSE which was a significant boost from his school's predicted target of a C grade. He has also chosen to continue his studies to A level after developing a love for the subject.

Personal Description:
I am a approachable but disciplined individual. I have tutored privately for 9 years now, 3 of which have now been in the UK.

Personal Description:
Brilliant 2017 Results: Six students received more than 18 offers from both prestigious independent schools and top grammar schools, including City of London School Girls, Bancroft's School, Chigwell School, Woodford County High School For Girls, Ilford County High School, Forest School, Colchester Royal Grammar School. One of my clients won full scholarship from Brentwood School (only top 10 students from more than 553 applicants are eligible for full scholarship). I am pleased that this is the forth consecutive year for 100% pass rate.

My name is Yang and I am a fully qualified Maths teacher (Qualified Teacher Register no. 1260271) working in an Ofsted "Outstanding" rated school.I have finished my master degree from University of Southampton with distinction, PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics)) from King's College London. I was working in a top investment bank as trader assistant ( yellow jacket ) before changing to become a maths teacher. I have over six years experience in primary, entrance exam, GCSE and A-Level maths tutoring. In this capacity I have extensive experience in preparing students for 11+ entrance exams. I am very familiar with the type of questions that students will face in these exams and what is needed to do well in them. I am always passionate for tutoring and I know how to make students' learning process enjoyable. My strong reputation has been built on my ability to improve my students' varying skills, ability and exam skills. I have unrivaled patience and understanding and I am able to bring the best maths tutoring experience to my students.

I am also a member of British Mathematical Association (BMA), London Mathematical Society (LMS), Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM).

For your peace of mind, I am Enhanced DBS checked. I will bring my Enhanced DBS certificate and school staff ID at the first lesson.

Teaching Experience:

Currently I am working as a Maths teacher in an Ofsted "Outstanding" rated school. I am also working with many Tutoring Agencies as five star rated executive tutor like Top Tutors, Griffin and Bell Education and Holland Park Education, etc. Unlike other tutors, I only teach limited number of students to ensure quality. My A-Level students successfully entered top universities like LSE, Warwick University, Imperial College and other elite Russell Group universities. 11+students successfully got through entrance examination to top schools like City of London School, Bancroft's School, Chigwell School, Woodford County High School For Girls, Ilford County High School, Forest School, etc.

Education:

King's College London
Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics) (PGCE)

University of Southampton
MSc. in Accounting and Finance (Distinction)

Tutoring Approach:

Quality is everything for me. International Student Assessment (ISA) shows that Chinese students ranked best in the world at maths ( UK is ranked 28th for maths, Source: google "Shanghai students ranked best in the world at maths and science", The Telegraph).

As a British Chinese, I can tell you the secret of Chinese learning maths. I have a unique method of tutoring which can be adapted whatever the skill level and also unique exam techniques. But my first objective is to target my students' enthusiasm for the subject so they will be passionate to learn mathematics. Practice is also essential for learning maths, but a good tutor knows how to design different questions for effective practice. Finally,I usually believe that learning is a continuing process and if I am honored to be your tutor, I can not only help you learn the knowledge, but also master the art of learning until one day, you will be able to help others like I do.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Rhea and I love to teach. I am most excited about Art as this is my passion (I am currently working as a Graphic Designer). I also really enjoy learning about science (in particular neuroscience and psychology). I find astrology fascinating and so am both creative and a bit nerdy.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in both primary and secondary schools as a teaching assistant. This was primarily in art in the secondary school, teaching children how to draw and use various materials to create great artwork. In primary school, I have helped teach literacy, numeracy, phonics, reading, science and art. During these experiences I have found ways of explaining new information to children so they can apply it without supervision. I also have worked in various school holiday clubs, so I relate very well to children.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is individualistic - each person has their own learning style and it is important to understand which way a student learns best. Some people are kinaesthetic learners, others are verbal and some have an amazing ability to memorize information. I am personally a hands on learner, but I am able to adapt to various techniques for students. I am friendly and personable and think it is important to develop a good relationship with tutees.

Personal Description:
I am a certified teacher of Italian, with a strong passion and enthusiasm for my work. I believe that languages are a powerful tool to access new information, meet different kinds of people and broaden our minds. I have always been passionate about foreign languages and now I'm committed to spreading the love for my first language to people from all over the world.

Teaching Experience:

I have over four years teaching experience. I began teaching Italian to primary and secondary school children. I helped them gain the necessary language skills to study school subjects in Italian and be at the same level as their peers.
In 2014, I started teaching Italian online to adults. I use Skype, Power Point presentations and a shared board to create an interactive learning environment for my students. Thanks to my lessons, one of my students was able to move to Italy and start a new job.
Additionally, I've collaborated with local language schools and taught English and Italian in the classroom to business people. After attending my courses, my students were able to pass their final exams and use their acquired foreign language in the workplace.

Tutoring Approach:

I go beyond the traditional grammar rules explanations and I tend focus on communication. I believe in the importance of interacting and in reaching fluency. No matter how many mistakes you make. Mistakes are just a part of the learning process: if you don't make them, it means you're not trying, and if you're not trying, you're not even learning.
My students' needs are at the core of my lessons. Every class will be tailored according to your abilities and skills and, of course, if you have any special request...feel free to ask. My purpose is to be here for you.

Personal Description:
Hello there. I am an experienced Latin tutor and am currently completing my PhD in Classics at the University of Edinburgh (2013-2017). I have an honours degree from University College Dublin (2008-2012) and a Masters in Classics from Trinity College Dublin (2012-2013).

I truly enjoy tutoring and understand that people come to learn Latin for many reasons. My main aim is to support my students throughout their learning and to help them achieve their own unique goals.

I am also happy to offer Ancient Greek and Old Norse.

Teaching Experience:

I have much experience teaching Latin. I taught Latin to two undergraduate classes at the University of Edinburgh in 2015-2016. This course covered all of the grammar in Wheelock's Latin as well as unadapted Ovid. I received excellent feedback from my students and was nominated for a student teaching award for my work.

I also have much experience teaching younger students and children. I have taught short Latin courses at various primary schools around the country and I was heavily involved in the founding of the Literacy through Latin programme here in Edinburgh, which aims to introduce Latin to state primary schools. As part of this, I spent a year teaching a class of 10 year olds at Liberton Primary School and this experience has provided me with the skills to teach and enthuse younger students.

I believe that an interest in Latin can be sparked at any age and have had great experiences with casual learners. Most recently, I worked with a tutee in her 50s who had no previous experience of Latin.

I have also received formal tutor training at the University of Edinburgh between 2014-2016.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin truly is the key to languages and I know from my own experience that the skills and tools acquired through Latin make learning other languages a much easier process.

I believe that translation is the best way to learn a language and therefore, I always tailor work to each individual student and adapt my teaching to their specific needs.

I know that language learning can make people very anxious and so I always approach my tutoring with the utmost patience and aim to provide care and support throughout the journey.

To put it simply, I love languages and I love Latin and I aim to impart this enthusiasm to all of my tutees.

Personal Description:
I am a Medical Sciences graduate from Bangor University and I'm currently studying to become a Physicians Associate. I have a passion for science which I am keen to share,

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of online tutoring and one-to-one sessions for those studying my degree who had come from different backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to use revision and learning strategies which helped me during my studies. This includes mnemonics and learning topics as stories, this works particularly well in Biology.
