Personal Description:
I am currently undertaking a funded History PhD at King's College London.

I hold a Masters in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies for which I was awarded a distinction and full funding as well as a BA Hons (First Class) in history and politics from the University of York. Given this, and my A Level subjects, I can offer private tuition in history, politics, geography and law, in preparation for GCSE, AS and A level exams. I am an organised, committed, reliable and enthusiastic individual who enjoys working with children and young adults, helping them to develop their understanding and interest in a variety of subjects.

I have tutored for a number of years, and have helped those I tutor to significantly improve their exam results and grades, often taking them from C and D level grades up to high As and Bs. My most recent tutee, who I tutored in GCSE Geography and History, acheived an A* in both subjects and came top of his year at school for his GCSE grades.

I am also happy to offer any help I can with university applications.

In the lead up to the exam period I can provide intensive revision sessions and/ or revision guides for any of the subjects listed below.

References can be provided upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored since 2007, and have helped those I tutor to significantly improve their exam results and grades, often taking them from C and D level grades up to high As and Bs.

For several years I have undertaken a variety of volunteer projects, working within schools/ educational environments and with children :- this has included working at the University of York, Barley Hall (York), Westminster Palace and the Tower of London. Whilst working in these environments, I conducted a range of independent historical research projects. I then planned educational sessions based on these materials, which I then delivered to school children of various ages and abilities. It was necessary to ensure that the material collected was not only historically accurate but also easy to understand and enjoyable to learn about, helping the children to develop an interest in different periods of history.

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst tutoring I would pay particular attention to the needs of each student, and tailor their study courses to best meet their needs and wishes. My approach to tutoring emphasises clarity, flexibility, and an enthusiasm for learning, within an informal and relaxed yet structured and interactive environment. I would encourage students to think imaginatively and challenge themselves academically, encouraging debate and broadening their horizons. This would not only help to improve a child's examination technique but also their academic development.

In the lead up to the exam period I can provide intensive revision sessions and/ or revision guides for any of the subjects listed below.

Personal Description:
I am a French native speaker who currently lives in England.

I have been teaching French and English for 16 years both in England and in large international schools. I enjoy reading and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have prepared students for a variety of examinations, including AQA GCSE, AQA FCSE, CIE IGCSE, AS and A Level (Edexcel and AQA). I have also taught French to primary students.

I hold a Licence from the University of Aix-en-Provence (France), a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from the University of Sheffield (UK) as well as a TESOL diploma from the University of Leicester (UK).

During the course of my career, I have lead the Foreign Modern Language faculty in a British International School.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that to successfully teach a language it is most important to look at each student individually. We all learn in different ways and I always make sure I get to know my students better before deciding on an approach.

However, the most important part is to make students feel comfortable and help them grow in confidence. Learning a language can be a challenge but, with the right approach and support, it can be a most rewarding experience.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of German and fluent in English and French. I moved to Cambridge in 2014. I enjoy sport, travelling and cooking.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced and highly motivated language teacher from Switzerland. Before moving to Cambridge 3 years ago, I spent more than 13 years teaching secondary school level modern foreign languages in Switzerland, specialising in English, German and French and preparing the pupils for further and higher education. I have tutored students here in Cambridge up to A Level standard, teach at the Deutsche Samstagsschule on Saturday mornings (GCSE level) and also teach adult education classes.
I am keen to share my passion for languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I always look for the most appropriate teaching method to keep my students stimulated and motivated. I use songs, games, visualisations and multimedia to help simplify complex issues, often create my own supplementary course material and regularly revise topics to consolidate learning. Teaching English, German and French as foreign languages has enabled me to appreciate the challenges students face understanding the different grammar structures.

Personal Description:
I am currently 20 years old and am at university at UCL. I am reading a BA(Hons) degree in Politics and Economics. Specialising in contemporary Russian politics, the history of German social thought, Republicanism and Macroeconomics.

Throughout my education, I have developed both an understanding of how to write well but also to help others improve their capacity to read, write, comprehend and speak English. My TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification has trained me how to be an effective tutor. I have spent time abroad pursuing my passion of education, in particular in Vietnam were my teaching ranged from large classes of thirty students to 1-1 classes. My approach is punctual, reliable, efficient, patient and the work itself will be tailored to the needs and ambitions of the student.

I am also available to teach other subjects such as Politics, History and Philosophy from a beginner to advanced level. In addition to this, I believe that the process of education should be enjoyable and rewarding because academic passion supports your learning.

Please feel free to ask me any questions at all and to contact me if you would like to organise a tutorial. I hope you will find my price agreeable, but I would also like to offer the first tutorial for free, so that we can get to know one another and establish your aims. Thank you!

Personal Description:
I have been an English teacher since moving to Asia in 2010. I have also studied intensive Mandarin at university in mainland China & Taiwan. I have been speaking Mandarin for 11 years now and use it daily in my life. For a period of 2 years I hardly even spoke English so as to improve my own Mandarin skills while immersing myself in Chinese society. I love watching movies & writing books. I do many sports including Parkour, climbing & archery. I always love to learn a new language and love teaching too. Love animals & pushing myself to do things. I'm positive about life & very friendly.

Teaching Experience:

For more than 8 years I have taught the English language to non native speakers throughout Asia and I have also taught beginner to intermediate level Mandarin to other foreigners in China. I have taught pre school children up through to high school and university level and even the elderly. I would say my strong points for teaching Mandarin are as follows: Spoken Chinese (How it's really used), formal and informal colloquial speaking, listening and understanding. I can also read traditional & simplified Chinese characters and write many.

Tutoring Approach:

My belief is that anyone can learn a language whether difficult or easy or if you have a hard time remembering things. There are ways and methods that can get your chosen language to stick in your head thus improving your skills quickly through the levels. My approach is to take a lesson, break it down into pieces & explain the exact meanings and the structure of what you're actually saying while drilling the characters into your head (Not literally)
>..< Also making it a fun and situational environment where you will learn how to really use your chosen language, therefore improving quickly and easily without feeling lost or frustrated. Instead you will be able to speak a new language within just a few months.
