Personal Description:
I graduated in 2011 with a degree in Classics at Cambridge University as a mature student. I am passionate about Latin and Greek and Ancient History. I have also attended a courses in New Testament Greek at the University of Cambridge's Institute of Continuing Learning.

I learned Latin and Greek at school up to O' Level but a few years ago I decided that I could no longer do without any Classics in my life and began to study at degree level, first with the Open University where I gained a Dip Class and subsequently at Cambridge University for a B.A and M.A.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous career one of my positions was as a Staff Training Officer with the Department of Employment where I trained adults in job related skills. Most recently I managed a counselling and advice centre in the voluntary sector where my counselling role involved working with young people.


I have current students studying Latin and Ancient Greek.



I ALSO OFFER PREPARATION FOR OXBRIDGE INTERVIEWS.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is student-centred, focusing on what the student's needs are whilst at the same time having a clear goal in mind. Latin and Greek inevitably involve learning grammar but I like to get students to read adapted texts as soon as possible so that there is a real sense of achievement.

If students are already learning Latin and Greek in another context my aim is to make sure that I support that learning. I aim to ensure that they have a good understanding of what they are learning at school (or elsewhere) by consolidating grammar and providing lots of practice which builds confidence.

Personal Description:
My name is Matthew and I am an experienced mathematics tutor up to GCSE Level. I hold a 2:1 degree in Engineering and a post graduate diploma in strategic Business Information Systems from University of East London. I hold a full CRB check which is available on request.

Teaching Experience:

I am presently working as a Mathematics cover teacher in one the community schools in London and I am very passionate about my subject. I got into teaching to make a different in young peoples lives and to help inspire young people towards further education. I have successfully tutored many GCSE students and their remarkable result speaks for itself. I Love challenges; one of which is to help students with special needs to achieve their best possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I undertakes a motivational approach to teaching. Experience has taught that most students lack confidence in their ability and often under rate what they already knew. I often start by assessing my students and creating a learning log of their strength and weakness. This enables me to set target and bench-marks on what we need to learn, how best we need to learn and how much we need to learn. However, I am very flexible, friendly and a realist.

Personal Description:
Following education at an ordinary comprehensive school, I graduated with a first-class masters degree from Magdalen College, Oxford. I was awarded a scholarship as an undergraduate for attaining excellent exam results. At school, I achieved the highest possible grade in all subjects I teach, including:

- Straight A's in Maths, Further Maths and Physics at A-Level
- A in Chemistry at AS-Level
- A*'s in all subjects I tutor at GCSE-Level

I now have over 3 years experience as a part-time academic tutor with fantastic results (see testimonials).
Outside of tutoring, I have a great passion for cars: I built a classic Fiat 500 and a kitcar (which I still use today!). In 2011, I spent a summer working for the McLaren F1 team.

For your peace of mind, I have an Enhanced DBS check and am happy to bring along my certificate to our first meeting.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 3 years experience in tutoring maths and science at the following levels:

KS2: Maths (I am experienced in tutoring at this level and have written the class material for a well respected private company)
KS3: Maths/Science
GCSE: Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology
A-Level: Maths, Further Maths, Physics

Tutoring Approach:

There are two key aspects to achieving in academia: learning techniques to pass exams and having a genuine interest in the subject. I believe that I can help with both.

By ensuring that I am well prepared for each lesson, I aim to simplify parts of the syllabus that the student is finding difficult and if necessary, teach in a number of different ways to aid understanding. I can help produce a revision plan for those students who are taking exams to ensure that all the material is covered in time.

The subjects I teach are fascinating, they just need to be taught in the right way. The school curriculum can appear a little dull at times but I hope that with the experience I have gained in a number of interesting environments, including working with the McLaren F1 team and in running my own electronics business where maths and science were essential, I can bring subjects to life in a way that shows their real value.

One of the great joys of tutoring is that every student is different - I love tailoring my approach to get the best out of every tutee.

Personal Description:
I am Yifen. I have gained excellent teaching experience of Chinese at all levels and in Maths (From KS1 up to GCSE). I received positive feedback from my previous students and gained credits to my patience, explicit express and responsibility. I have got a degree of PhD at the School of Education at the University of Manchester in 2015. I have been appointed as a governor in a primary school in York.
Regarding my personality, I am a very easygoing person, kindly and also with a high sense of responsibility. I have been living in the UK since 2010. I have stayed in places covered students of all creeds and ethnic backgrounds. I have gained significant experience of working in the international culture. I appreciate and respect individual differences.

I like travelling and experiencing different things. I have visited a few places, such as European countries (England, Scotland, Welsh, Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Iceland and Greenland), Africa (Cameroon), South Korea, Hongkong and Marco. I love sports, especially, swimming, yoga, cycling, hiking and horse riding.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mandarin (online and face -to-face) to non-native English speakers with a wide range of ages at all levels both in China and in the UK for about 10 years. This deeply developed my valuable knowledge of quality teaching and meeting the student's individual needs. I have gained valuable teaching experience from helping in the primary school including the Nursery in York. I have been supporting the adult with a learning difficulty (e.g. dyslexia) in York Learning since January 2015.

I am a free-lance mandarin teacher and have been working with some language organisations, such as Cactus Language Training since 2012. I am also an interpreter/translator. With more than 10 years of both written and spoken translation experience and a first degree in the English language, I have obtained valuable oral experience as a translator in a range of sections from business (e.g.2010 EXPO Shanghai) to Education (translating the articles and interpreting at the international conferences).

Achievement:
My students enjoyed the lessons and have successfully achieved their goals. For instance, a girl achieved A* in GCSE Chinese Mandarin with my help in 2015 and two others recently passed HSK2 successfully.

Tutoring Approach:

I take all efforts to prepare lessons to meet the students' individual needs. I try my best to create a comfortable learning environment, which I think a good atmosphere is very important to learn a language and to encourage learners to open their mouth and speak. Lessons will be prepared. There will be some prepared funny stories or other materials during the lessons. So you can learn mandarin and have fun here!
My understanding is a good teacher is to be responsible for the students and to meet students' needs. My working experiences have ascertained my belief that it is essential to teach the students in front of you rather than the book. I endeavour to be the best listener and observe and identify the problems occurring during the lessons. It helps me to work out the solution and develop your potential at maximum.

If you feel a bit struggling with or tired of learning Mandarin on your own, I would encourage you to come to me and work together to achieve your goal efficiently.

There are some textbooks I have been using for the learners, such as:
Confidence Chinese Vol. Getting Started
Confidence Chinese Vol2. Living in China
Chinese Made Easy Book1, 2 and 3.
Standard Course HSK
Edexcel Chinese for AS
Edexcel Chinese for A2
Chinese Made Easy for Kids.

Personal Description:
I am very passionate about the teaching and learning of maths and endeavour to ignite the same enthusiasm in those I teach.

Teaching Experience:

I am a fully qualified maths teacher currently in my fifth year teaching at an outstanding school in Grays, Essex.

Tutoring Approach:

Working in an outstanding secondary school provides me with the experience of working with large classes and small groups. The benefits of one-to-one tuition are clear as each student receives more dedicated time and attention with the lesson tailored to their specific weaknesses.

I believe a strong grasp of methodology is the key to gaining a deeper understanding of maths and far outweighs just getting specific questions 'right'.

Personal Description:
I have a BA Honours Degree in English Studies from Aleppo University in Syria in 2000. I embarked on two Postgraduate Diplomas at Aleppo University one in Linguistics (2002); the other in Education and Qualification in 2003. In both of these Diplomas I was awarded a Distinction. In 2002, I was fortunate in gaining a scholarship to study in the UK and was nominated to study in the department of Language and Linguistics at the University of Essex. I found this course to be immensely useful to me as a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) professional as I was able to observe a range of different EAP (English for Academic Purposes)classrooms; make academic presentations and really developed my love of scholarship which fired me with the enthusiasm to read for a PhD degree. I finished my doctorate in TESOL at the University of Ulster entitled "EAP Teachers Approaches to Giving Written Feedback on Academic Writing in British and Syrian ELT Centres". . I am extremely interested in teaching the language skills (as my recent doctorate shows). I am extremely hard working and sociable. I have good comparative knowledge of Western and Islamic societies which I could share with students where pertinent. I also have two qualifications from Ulster University in Peer Mentoring and Counselling.

I have strong interpersonal, communication, and classroom management skills and self-motivator. Apart from being an interesting experience in itself, tutoring is an ideal opportunity for me at this stage of my career as the area of this job is interesting to me and I have got the enthusiasm and motivation and energy to do it well and to develop things.I would like consider offering online tutorials (email writing tutorials for students who can not attend some classes).

Teaching Experience:

In the Diploma of Education and Qualification, I have been trained how to teach and how to deliver lectures in Arabic and English and also how to prepare lesson plan. I have experience of teaching university students in Syria as I was a lecturer at Aleppo University from 2002 to 2013. I enjoy teaching and lecturing and love my profession as I am particularly interested in communicating with individuals and groups. My colleagues and supervisors all say that I am a natural communicator and this, coupled with my knowledge of the field, leads me to think that I would make a good teacher. My mother tongue language is Arabic, yet my knowledge of written and spoken English is very good as well. I am also interested in materials design and curriculum development in ELT and could make useful contributions in these areas. I have also specialized in ESP, Materials and Methods in ELT, Language Teachers in Classrooms and Vocabulary and would be interested in teaching international students. My job in Syria was delivering pre-sessional programmes in academic English language to Syrian postgraduate students. Those students have to attend some EAP and ESP courses and pass the final exam which will enable them to pursue their high studies in Syria or in some English speaking countries like UK, USA and Canada. My teaching experience gives me a deeper insight and understanding of actual teaching/learning contexts. When I did my MA degree at Essex University, I taught some international students as part of the "Teaching Practice" module. I have been trained how to write a lesson plan for international students and how to use the PowerPoint for delivering lectures. Furthermore, I am very au fait with technology in the classroom.

Tutoring Approach:

It is the application of an integrating approach for the development of communicative skills in the lesson, in which the four skills in the acquisition of knowledge of a foreign language can be taught in a coherent way, and practiced together, with a distinction of the importance of one upon the other. One image for teaching English as a second or foreign language (ESL/EFL) is that of a tapestry. The tapestry is woven from many strands, such as the characteristics of the teacher, the learner, the setting, and the relevant languages (i.e., English and the native languages of the learners and the teacher). For the instructional loom to produce a large, strong, beautiful, colorful tapestry, all of these strands must be interwoven in positive ways. For example, the instructor's teaching style must address the learning style of the learner, the learner must be motivated, and the setting must provide resources and values that strongly support the teaching of the language. However, if the strands are not woven together effectively, the instructional loom is likely to produce something small, weak, ragged, and pale--not recognizable as a tapestry at all.

Personal Description:
I'm an Italian girl from Rome who recently moved to the UK to start university at Goldsmiths College. I was raised in a bilingual home, with an Italian father, and Italo-American mother. I'm sociable and open with an interest in music, animals (I have three dogs back home) and sports, especially sailing. I love children and have experience in babysitting: this is why I'm looking to tutor younger people. I'm looking for a job which will not interfere with my studies in order to make a little money aside from what I receive from my family.

Teaching Experience:

I do not have extensive teaching experience, but in Rome I babysat and nurtured two young Italian girls (6 and 8 years old) for around 2 years. As I am bilingual, on request from the girls parents, I often adressed them in English in order to better their language skills. We played educational games, held conversations, watched films and sang songs in order to make the experience as fun and entertaining as possible. Although I realize that I dont have considerable experience I am eager to learn, and teach. Furthermore I was raised with a younger sibling, and in close contact with 3 younger cousins of which I was often left in charge.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to make it as engaging and enjoyable as possible. Youngsters are often in school for a good part of the day, and to leave school just to be privately tutored for an hour or two may result discouraging for them. In order to make these lessons a pleasure, as opposed to a chore, I hope to employ teaching tactics which will produce satisfaction and gratification. I am open to suggestions by part of the parents, but if left to my own accord I would employ the following activities: conversation, typical Italian games which will extend vocabulary, general culture, cooking typical plates, singing traditional songs, watching funny clips, reading stories aloud, and playing pretend games. If required I will be able to engage in grammatical lessons as well, helping the children memorize verbs, quizzing them, and leaving them assignments to work on at home.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I have over 25 years of experience in English tutoring (in the UK and abroad), among other things. Through a tailored process of direct one-to-one engagement, I have successfully assisted learners of all abilities improve their skills in English. This includes reading, writing and speaking, GCSE A-Level and Baccalaureate, and English for non-native speakers (including adult learners and business professionals). Moreover, as a published writer, senior-level editor and speechwriter, I have also trained individuals in elocution, writing and speaking, and can therefore also assist with improving essays.

Teaching Experience:

Over 25 years as a private tutor, including teaching English to non-native speakers in Asia, Europe, and North America.

Tutoring Approach:

Flexible, friendly, tailored, results-driven. I assess your abilities and plan a process of study based upon improving those skills that are mutually identified as requiring improvement.
