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.

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.

Then i will review the text books if any and if needed recommend any other relevant book the student should consult. Take a small interview from the student to check his/her abilities.On the basis of that i will judge from where we have o start.Do the student need to start from very basis or scratch or from some point in the mid etc.I will focus on repeating the daya to day work the student has done in the class so that if he/she might need any clerification it should be fix first and for that if I have to do some background work I am wiling to do that.

Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing
Certified professional Marketer (Asia/Pacific)
I am a retired lecturer from Sri Lanka, and I have been teaching Economics, Business Studies and marketing in Schools (Edexcel Specifications), Academic levels and professional levels in Sri Lanka.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 15 years of teaching experience (Lecturing). The theories what I have studied and have been teaching is universal. When I teach any subjects mentioned above, I always quote UK examples and also world examples and refers to UK case studies where its appropriate. Over the past few years I have prepared many students successfully in Economics and business studies In AQA, Ed excel and OCR specifications. In any syllabus specification the theories are same,
Home visits are possible with in 15 miles from SM6 area and can consider other areas with prior negotiations.

Tutoring Approach:

I follow the syllabus provided by the exam board, to teach each topic. Then I go through past papers, explain how to answer the questions. I expect students to do the papers at home and give to me for marking. I go through their answers and explain how to answer the questions. My teaching approach is, first I assess the student's current knowledge regarding the subject and thereafter I pitch accordingly. I use simple language and current examples in explaining the theories and concepts. Also I give and discuss past papers with the student and guide them in the correct method in answering a question. I give home work from selected past papers. I prepare a simplified handout for every lesson and this handout is the final reading material for the examination. Sometimes I dictate short notes during the lesson and my teaching sessions are interactive, where the students are encouraged to ask questions and express their current knowledge about the subject. At present there are number of satisfied students. I am unable to disclose their identities with out prior permission from them. My first lesson is free of charge. So that the student will have a chance to judge my approaches to teaching, subject knowledge, my mannerism etc.

Personal Description:
I consider myself to be an enthusiastic, responsible and very organised person who likes to transmit calmly and in a methodical manner. Throughout my life I have attained an open mind towards the needs and desires of the people in my vicinity. My friends are from all walks of life and my frequent travels to places within Europe and further abroad have given me a great insight in different cultures and customs. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, and thrive on increasing my circle of friends.

Teaching Experience:

In my previous employment at The Macarena Hospital (Seville-Spain), I worked on a voluntary basis for a period of approximately two years, and with a frequency of one day a week, with hospitalised children. In this position I assisted the children with their class work.
Also, I have taught English (basic level) once a week, to my work colleagues in this previous employment (The Macarena Hospital - Seville-Spain). Furthermore, I currently teach Spanish language, both written and conversational, to a work colleague at my current job, supplemented by correcting any completed homework that I give to him at the end of each teaching session. It is with great pleasure that I observe the steady improvement in his knowledge of the fundamentals of the Spanish language and the gained confidence in his verbal expressions.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient person who likes to teach. My experience as a Spanish tutor is perhaps limited, but I have ample experience as a tutor of other subjects in previous employment settings. I always endeavor to find the most suitable and appropriate way to teach the subjects to my students. The student is always of my primary concern, and I make sure to create an atmosphere that allows for critical feedback in order to further improve and enhance the learning experience for both the student and myself. It is of my opinion that a satisfactory experience for the student increases the chance of achieving the intended results.

Whilst I will do my utmost to give the student all the tools necessary to succeed and to cover as much as possible from the syllabus, I do not make promises on the grades that will be achieved or GCSEs or any other exam, as this ultimately relies on the student's self-study, revision and performance on the day. I do however pride myself on keeping students/ parents/ guardians informed on their progress, using the past papers as indicators of current level. This enables parents/ guardians to make informed choices about the amount of study necessary and provides the best support for the learner. I am always available should parents/ guardians have any questions or concerns.

Estimated cost: Within Stevenage and the immediate surrounding areas: £5 extra per trip

Personal Description:
I'm 49 years old and I've worked with children and young people in various settings since I was a teenager myself. This includes youth camps/expeditions for children from deprived backgrounds and musical evenings in half-way houses for young people with emotional problems. I've also worked full-time for 17 years with children with learning difficulties, Autism, and challenging behaviour in both special schools and in a community outreach role.

I have recently graduated with first class honours in Geoscience, and I'm very interested in science in general, ever keen to learn more about the world/universe from a rational perspective. I love to travel, combining meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures, along with new environments, different animals and different rocks! I also love music and to play the piano, guitar and ukulele.

I am positive, calm, patient, adaptable and responsive to individual needs and enjoy supporting people to overcome their challenges.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to my youth work experience, I lived in Seville for nearly 3 years, teaching English as a foreign language, mainly to young adults in a language school and in 1:1 private tutoring. Within my experience in special schools I have taught pupils on a one to one basis and taken small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience both as a teacher and from my varied learning experiences, self-esteem and confidence is the most important basis for successful learning, combined with actually enjoying the experience. I endeavour to enhance both. I adapt my approach and strategies to meet the needs of each individual.

Personal Description:
I'm a master student from China majoring in human nutrition in Glasgow university. Before this, in my undergraduate university in China I have worked as a proofreader of dictated draft from speech records for student union. I'm good at wording and grammar. Recently I learned a little German and Arabic to experience how people speaking varies around the world and also inspired by these teachers as to how to approach to a language from 0.

Teaching Experience:

During this year I have taught a classmate mandarin from 0. He is a Scottish. However, he is keen to learn a wide variety of languages. When he found Korean and Malay easier he gave up mandarin. Such a worldwide culture vulture! Anyway, no matter you learn mandarin for culture, travel, work, yellow-face friends, curiosity, or just Chinese restaurants, you are all warmly welcome! I can teach you from the basic pronunciation which is like singing to beautiful Chinese characters which is like dancing.....

Tutoring Approach:

I'm only available from September to December 2016. I'm friendly and very patient. If you have time for homestudying I can teach more during tutorial; if not, we will practice more together to consolidate memory. Language is for communication, absolutely not for getting a high score!
Honored to be your teacher!

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a 23 year old final year student of French and German at the University of Hull who is very passionate about languages and also studied English Language up until A Level. I am happy to travel to my students for tuition so the student can learn in the comfort of their own home. I lived in both France and Germany last year for a semester each and would be happy to help out with any language struggles, as I understand first hand how daunting learning and speaking a language can be and I aim to help my students feel as comfortable as possible.

Teaching Experience:

I have work experience teaching voluntarily at a Primary school from my home town in Bedford, along with studying language in pre schools and nurserys as part of my A Level English Language course. I am aspiring to become a teacher when I graduate next year.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to get my students talking while making them feel at ease and as comfortable as possible. Languages can be very daunting, and I want to instill some confidence in my students along with aiding in any grammatical errors and helping to build vocabulary for my students. I have a large range of resources, such as textbooks with grammar exercises up to A Level qualification and beyond, and will be very happy to help out in any areas where students are struggling.

I feel that I have a good approach with younger students due to being young myself and helping my sister and siblings of friends throughout my school life with their language struggles. I am a friendly and approachable person who wants to make lessons fun and educational rather than a chore, and I feel like this will massively help students retain information easier and motivate them further in their studies from personal experience.

I am not perfect and am not aiming for perfection, I am enthusiastic and engaging and am willing to adapt my teaching skills from student to student. Some students prefer working from a textbook with worksheets, and some prefer a more vocal approach to language learning and I am very aware of how to adapt from student to student.

Personal Description:
Hello and welcome to my profile! It's great to have you here!

OK, so I'll tell you a little about myself… My name is Aman. I am a qualified EFL/ESL teacher and I have been working abroad for the last 16 years in different countries from Thailand to Dubai.

For the last 5 years I was working with the British Council as an academic manager in Qatar. Here I was managing educational programmes and a team of teachers, which I loved! I provided training for teachers and worked on curriculum development.

When I am not working, I love movies, music, socialising and meeting new people and learning about new cultures! I am also a big coffee drinker.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching English as a foreign language.

I have taught students of all levels from beginner to advanced and have worked with students from all over the world helping them to improve and develop their general English language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking by designing lessons to bring out their full potential.

In addition to teaching general English, my ELT specialism for my Cambridge DELTA was Exam Preparation Classes. Therefore, I have solid experience and knowledge of helping learners prepare for the IELTS exam and get the band they want by focusing on the strategies needed in each module. Moreover, I can also help you prepare for the Cambridge First (FCE) exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, the heading states 'Approach to Tutoring', I look at it as 'Our Approach to Learning'.

Together, we will look at YOUR English language goals, and the best way to achieve them, as every learner has different needs.

Lessons are learner-centred, that means I do not teach in a 'lecture' style, but provide opportunities for you to produce and practise language and then look at ways to further develop and improve that language. It is important for me that you feel comfortable and relaxed in these sessions. Lessons should be enjoyable and engaging for you (and me!).

There is error correction throughout lessons, but this is where you will self-correct with my guidance making you more aware of which areas need more focus.

Depending on your level, I use a range of materials from coursebooks, internet, newspapers, magazines to podcasts and videos.

I will give you regular homework, which will help to reinforce what you have learnt and give you more independence in using English. My aim is for you to feel more confident in any situation where you have to use English.

Feel free to contact me and let's talk about what you need. You can ask me any questions and I'll be happy to explain.

There is no obligation and don't worry, I don't bite!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aman
