Personal Description:
My name is Phoebe, I'm a native Chinese speaker, who moved to England 12 years ago, I am now a British Citizen and have lived in Chesham for 8 years. I gained my MBA at The University of Leicester in 2002. My husband is British and is a Business Manager. We have a 8 years old daughter, called Annabel and a 2 years old daughter called Bella. I used to work for an insurance company as an auditor and now I am a full time Chinese Tutor.

I have gained two teaching certificates; "Teaching Chinese to Young Learners" and "Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language". And I have been working as Chinese tutor since 2009.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is : Teaching children, teenagers and adults. The lessons can be in groups or one on one. In groups you will gain from having more interaction with the other students.

Personal Description:
I live and work in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Currently I am employed by the Open University as an Associate Lecturer tutoring modules in history and the humanities. I have also worked at other local universities teaching history and politics, including a recent contract at Newcastle University.

I have research interests in history at post-doctoral level, specialising in late nineteenth and early twentieth century British electoral politics.

I am looking to teach students at a higher education level or those aspiring to it. I can work with students at levels including: A-Level or equivalent, at foundation degree level, at undergraduate and post-graduate levels.

I am looking to work with students studying history, politics or those looking to build study and learning skills for higher education, especially those interested in studying the arts and humanities.

Teaching Experience:

I have fourteen years experience of working at higher education institutions. My main teaching has been in the field of British and European history, other humanities at foundation level (including literature, history of art, music, religious studies, history of science and medicine and philosophy) and contemporary politics.

At the Open University, I have also specialised in study skills teaching to aid access to further courses, working with students from a broad range of educational experiences.

Some of the work I do is one-to-one teaching, so I am used to working with individual students and responding to their needs.

I regularly provide teaching in the form of lecturers and tutorials, and marking of assignments.

I like to create teaching materials to help students with their studies.

OU lecturers receive regular feedback from their students about their teaching and I tend to gain very good feedback.

I am also involved in postgraduate teaching concerning research in local history.

Tutoring Approach:

I am familiar with a range of teaching methods and would tailor the support to students on the basis of their requirements.

At the OU, much of my work is distance learning-related which involves correspondence, online and telephone communication so I am happy to provide this sort of support to students across the country.

I can also meet up with students for face-to-face contact even some distance away if that is suitable.

I am happy to mark work and offer feedback to students, including essays and dissertations.

I can assist students with their current studies.

Personal Description:
A highly experienced teacher with relevant qualifications. I hold a masters in business studies and also a bachelors degree in civil engineering. I have an enhanced CRB disclosure.

GCE June 2012 update - Business studies student's confirm A level results. Fantastic! Student references available.

Maths Update!! Year 8 & 10 students moved up to higher set maths at school
March Update!! Private tutoring Business studies students achieved A grade in Unit 2 and Unit 3!!

Teaching Experience:

I teach business studies (GCSE, AS/A2) at an independent school in Cambridge. I also do private tutoring in business studies and maths (KS3, GCSE). I have huge resources and materials available from my teaching experience and I know how to prepare candidates for exams.
My maths students are always being moved up a set to a higher level.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure the students understand the topics and check this by using lots of question and answer materials. We go through exam techniques and how to answer questions i.e. what the examiner is looking for. I provide case studies which we discuss and pull out the relevant information required to answer the question. I get the students to do lots of practice in application, analysing and evaluating case studies.

For maths I work on moving the student up a level. I first assess what level the students are at (level 5, 6, 7, 8). If they are at level 5 we work on moving them to Level 6 and above. I always work on moving them up another level

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Aberdeen and before that I got an MChem in Chemistry. I also have extensive knowledge of Biology until A Level and Physics until GCSE. I currently work for an educational publisher working on international education books up to A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a tutor in the past and I have tutored primarily university students (4 years experience) but I do have experience in tutoring school level students in all three sciences. I have successfully tutored students to grade A standard at A Level and GCSE, with one student gaining an A*.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to work commitments I have been away from tutoring for a while (around 4 years) but it is something that I wish to get back into as I found it very rewarding. During a previous role I was selected as a mentor for new graduate trainees which ignited my desire to become a tutor again.

I tend to structure the sessions depending on the needs to the individual. I am happy to simply go over a topic or come up with sample tests - I am totally flexible and will aim to cater for your requirements.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a French native living in the UK since 2011. I am enjoying my new life in London.

Currently workin as a Care Assistant in a nursing home, I am also studying to get a teaching qualification. I have been doing one-to-one tuition for a few years now.

My students usually describe me as friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and dedicated (based on students' satisfaction survey carried out by the school)

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor in French since 2012.

I have worked with people of all ages and abilities from primary school children to adult learners.

I have helped many young people improve their level in French and achieve great results for their GCSE'S and A Level's.

I also taught evening classes with a private Language School for one year in 2012 and have gained an amazing experience in teaching. I am really enjoying sharing my knowledge and seeing my students improving, asking useful questions, and having fun after all, speaking a new language as if they had always known it.

Tutoring Approach:

Different abilities and learning difficulties are all taken into consideration to give each student a personalised work plan to meet their needs and expectations in an approach that is non judgmental.

Students are not been made to "feel stupid" about their mistakes but encouraged to learn from them.

The advantages of one-to-one tuition :

-Work on a specific skill (eg. Speaking, listening, writing or grammar)
-Learn from scratch at your own pace
-Boost your confidence (eg. You may be shy to speak in your classroom, or maybe you learned French at school years ago and need some extra help before a trip to France)
-Help your child to learn faster at school in early years.

Regular practice and commitment are strongly advised for best learning results.

NB : I travel to the tutee for free up to 7 miles radius, an additional fee may be required for longer travel distance.

Personal Description:
Bonjour! My name is Samantha and I am from Bordeaux, a region famous for its wine. I am a qualified and experienced teacher. I have been living in the UK for many years and, after working in different roles in the educational system, I decided to undertake a French teaching qualification. The course was really stimulating and learning about pedagogy was particularly interesting. I have enjoyed teaching ever since.

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide experience of teaching on a one to one basis as well as small group from the very young to adults. I am familiar with the curriculum for French GCSE and A Level.
I also teach University students, supporting them with grammar and conversation.
I have experience teaching French to adults from basic knowledge for holidays up to advanced level.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor lessons to what the student requires. I respect each student`s pace of work and way of learning and try to help them to fulfill their potential.
I make lessons interesting, stimulating and adapted to my clients' needs.
I am aware that tutees have different learning style and therefore I offer a variety of exercises.
I use different materials such as videos, images, magazines, music and the latest Course books from L'alliance Française as well as my own creation.
I empathize with my students because I had to learn English myself. Therefore, I know it can be difficult to learn a foreign language and even frustrating at times but also very rewarding. That is why, I make students aware of their progress on a regular basis.
I love teaching and I have had some very good feedback from my students. I am a friendly, patient and approachable person.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Russian, currently living in Manchester, university educated with years of teaching experience of Russian and English as a foreign language. I offer high quality Russian language courses via Skype and in person for foreign students of all levels.
I will help you to choose an appropriate individual educational program, and the quantity of hours per week. Whether you are a beginner, or at an intermediate or advanced level, I can offer Russian language courses suitable to you.

Besides, I can provide a reasonable discount if you pay by a block of 5 lessons (it will cost you only 15 pounds (that is 23 dollars) per one-hour lesson by Skype or in person) via paypal though they take some minimal fees it is yet the cheapest way of payment. Or by bank transfer.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Best regards,
Oxana

Teaching Experience:

I am passionate about teaching. I hold 6 years of experience in teaching pre-school English (for children aged 3 to 5), English as a subject for years one to nine students, General and Business English for employees of different companies and Russian as a foreign language privately

Tutoring Approach:

I use the communicative method. The main focus is on using the language. You start speaking Russian from the very first lesson, even if you`re a beginner.
Russian grammar will be introduced to you in a clear structured format - you will see that there is an understandable logic. You will not be overloaded with grammar tasks and will learn only as much grammar as you need in order to speak and understand Russian.
If you`d like to use a book during the course, together we can choose a book that will best address your needs.At the same time, most lessons are held without the use of a book. The book would mainly be used for reference, providing structure, and homework material.
I like the idea of total immersion because we all really learn by doing, and the more you practice Russian, the more you will learn.

Personal Description:
Friendly and enthusiastic tutor and facilitator teaching Drama at all levels (GCSE, A Level, Degree, Auditioning for drama schools, coaching for professionals). Teaching English and Media Studies to GCSE and Film at all levels.

I am a very experienced tutor (and professional practitioner). I really enjoy working with individuals and getting them inspired about their subjects, because what examiner's really want is enthusiastic, intelligent thinkers who have their own opinion.

I have written, directed and produced many plays and films and worked extensively teaching and directing professional actors. I have had work in the Brighton and Lewes Festivals and I founded a number of theatre companies. I currently run a nationally recognised drama company that produces plays and films about social injustice and human rights issues.

Teaching Experience:

Experienced tutor and facilitator. Taught in both mainstream and special needs schools and colleges in London (Wandsworth College and the City Lit.) and for East and West Sussex Education authorities. I have run special projects for Gifted and Talented pupils for East Sussex and have run youth theatres and produced numerous theatre, film and writing projects. I taught Drama, English and creative writing to seriously ill children at St Bartholomew`s Hospital school for over five years. My work has been featured in The Times Educational Supplement.

Qualification in teaching from the City Lit., Diploma in drama from an accredited British Drama School. Trained in film at the Kensington Film Project and Brighton Film School as well as training with film director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, The Croupier).

Experienced writer and happy also to teach writing and play/screenplay writing.

Tutoring Approach:

A member of AQA and Edexcel, I work with past papers to make sure students are thoroughly prepared for examinations. I work in a person centred way so that the teaching session is focused on each student's particular needs. I create learning plans for each student. I am empathetic to learners and able to empower students, get them enthusiastic about the work and able to think for themselves.
Extensive practical experience of writing, drama; acting and directing, means I can be of particular assistance to students studying plays and novels. I have developed special resources for A Doll`s House, An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, Romeo and Juliet etc. (all GCSE and A level texts), These resources enable students to gain a deep understanding of the text and to know how to approach exam questions.

Some feedback from my students August 2015:

"Dear Will, I just wanted to let you know how brilliantly he did in his exams! He got the well deserved A in drama, an A* in English and a C in Biology. Warwick required AAB but A*AC is the equivalent and they have confirmed his place for September 2016.
Thank you for all your help and support.

"We're thrilled, she got an A! thanks so much"

"Good news. She secured a B overall in her Drama A2 as a result of a B in her written paper - it was this B which in fact secured her place at Southampton. So the exercise of resitting the written exam was well worth it and your input made all the difference, so huge thanks from us both".

"Just to let you know he got B in both Drama and Film. He is really pleased and only 3 marks of an A overall!! so thanks for all the help and I hope we can do some more work this year.

Personal Description:
I'm 17 years old and am a current student of the Sixth Form at St Bartholomew's School. The four subjects I'm currently taking are Maths, German, History and Politics. In my AS levels I received an A in all three subjects I took, including in Maths. I am a big sports fan and am known to often watch football games at Hungerford Town and Reading. I can also be found at most Wales international home matches. I have experience in volunteering as a befriender for the Alzheimer's Society.

Teaching Experience:

I have a Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership, a course which I undertook alongside GCSEs, where I coached children in Years 3-6 to play sports. At school, I was a year long mentor for new Year 7s as a Year 9.

Tutoring Approach:

Patience is key. Children and young teenagers, who may find maths difficult, can easily become frustrated. It's up to a tutor to let the child overcome their frustration by enabling them to solve complex problems and to make maths interesting. It's often challenging for children to use up their spare time for extra tutoring, so tutoring must be enjoyable and enlightening in equal measure.

Subjects

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher for many years having received my PGCE in 1992. Since that time I have worked in a variety of schools in the state and private sectors both in London and Oxfordshire. Teaching physics is a great privilege and pleasure having taught A Level physics for both OCR and Edexcel boards as well as GCSE and iGCSE physics and chemistry. I am currently in the process of creating an A-level OCR physics course for an Oxfordshire school which is both challenging and hugely rewarding as I know it will be used for the A-level students for years to come.

Here are a few testimonials of previous tuition:

From Martin 5/5: (A-Level Physics) Excellent!

We cannot praise Kevin enough. He has the rare combination of knowing his subject very thoroughly and able to communicate that knowledge in a way that immediately makes sense to the pupil. Plus he is clearly very enthusiastic about the subject and teaching others. Very inspirational.

Time keeping perfect. General manor, friendly and enthusiastic. You just know your child is going to enjoy the lesson and progress.

I have no doubt that our daughter will have improved her exam grades by at least a grade. Also her general interest and enthusiasm for the subject has improved.

Simon: 5/5 Our son is enjoying the sessions very much, Kevin has reinvigorated our son's enthusiasm for Physics and perfectly meets the mix of needs now; subject knowledge, teaching style, enthusiasm and targetted exam technique… brilliant!

Natasha: 5/5 Kevin tutored my son for maths and physics. He made the lessons interesting and fun and really helped him with the revision process. He was always prompt and cheerful. All in all, an inspiring teacher.

Siyu: 5/5 It's very useful for the exam. Thank you so much!.

Tutoring Approach:

I would use my experience in teaching to understand the specific problems the tutee has with the subject material and then work with them with appropriate materials and resources to overcome the areas of concern.

My experiences in schools range from organizing trips for science based activities and interests, accompanying pupils skiing as well as the world famous Magdalene College School choir to Europe and coaching rowing in London and Oxford schools for competitive events in London and Henley. I would use my experience with students to help develop a good working relationship.

Personal Description:
I have two main passions: my passion for teaching and my keen interest in Classics. I am currently at the final stage of a joint PhD program in History of Ancient Philosophy between KU Leuven (University of Leuven) and the University of Milan. At both universities, I have had the opportunity to teach Latin Language and Ancient Philosophy. My history made me knowledgeable about Classical Languages and Civilization and an enthusiastic communicator of it to students of different ages.
I attended the 'Liceo Classico', which provides a specific high-school program that strongly focuses on Greek and Latin Languages, Literatures, and Culture, and, more generally, on Humanities. There, I studied the whole history of Greek and Latin literature and I learned to deal with Classical authors in original and to translate even difficult texts.
The desire to deepen into my knowledge of Classical languages and to become a teacher led me to further pursue Classical studies at university. I attended the University of Milan, which is one of the most important universities in Italy and has the biggest Department of Classics. There I developed a solid knowledge in Classical Languages, Literature, Philosophy, and Art. There, I read in original and translated a great amount of texts of the Classical tradition, and learned the methodology for philological research. I gained both my BA's and MA's degrees in Classics scoring 110/110 summa cum laude both times. For my MA thesis, I applied as a Visiting Scholar to the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) where I could perform my research in an eminent Classics Department, taking, amongst others, Professor Martin Bloomer's class on Latin authors.

Teaching Experience:

Alongside my academic career, I continued to pursue my passion for teaching, tutoring high-school and middle-school students in Greek and Latin and in Italian Grammar. Those experiences strengthened my teaching skills and the satisfaction they gave me kept encouraging me in pursuing a teaching career. More specifically, I started to deal with students of different ages and to learn different methodologies of teaching, always in dialogue with older professional teachers. At KU Leuven, I had the chance to teach a seminar on the History of Philosophy for BA Students in the English program. This experience was very challenging and fruitful for deepening my teaching and linguistic skills.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is not only to provide tutees with knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages and the classical world, but also, and primarily, to support the development of a curious, open and critical mentality, through an actual experience of encounter with the great authors of our tradition. In tutoring, I take the presence of two elements to be essential: on the one hand, a rigorous teaching method, especially if the scope is to learn Latin or Greek grammar, offering a precise and articulate content to students; on the other hand, a constant interaction between the tutor and tutee, calling for the active participation of the tutee and facilitating dialogue and exchanges.
