Personal Description:
I am 50 years of age and have a wealth of experience in many aspects of life, including education and commerce. I have taught in colleges and schools and have run my own computer software company. I also have experience of property development. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy the challenge of helping students to achieve their best; I enjoy working one to one with students or in small groups; tutorials are tailor made for each student, based on an assessment and previous exam results. I have a BA and a BSC(hons) degree in maths and computing. I also hold qualified teacher status and a Secondary Mathematics Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

Teaching Experience:

25 years of teaching experience including 20 years teaching Motor Vehicle Technology in colleges in Cornwall, Bristol and Essex and 5 years teaching mathematics and several other subjects in secondary schools. I am also a qualified NVQ assessor for Motor Vehicle Engineering.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that to enable a student to achieve their best a "hands-on" approach is best. Building on strengths and developing weaknesses. I like to work with the students past exam papers so I know exactly where they need help. lessons are are tailor made to the individuals needs.

Personal Description:
Success is within your grasp.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Laurence, and I am a local private English tutor.
I have a degree in English Literature (2:1).
I am a fully qualified teacher, and have my QTS certificate (Qualified Teacher Status) to prove it.
My experience of exam marking for GCSE's, leading English Departments and being classified by Ofsted as an 'Outstanding' teacher ensures that progress is accelerated, meaningful and genuine.

Teaching Experience:

I have been Head of Department, GCSE Manager, Monitoring and Assessment Manager, a GCSE Exam marker, an A Level exam marker and I am also consistently classified as 'Outstanding' according to Ofsted requirements.

My largest concern for my students is to make sure that their confidence is built up by becoming pro-active and independent learners. All too often teachers 'spoon-feed' their students, leading them to a false sense of security in their skills, which therefore leads to poor performance in examinations.

I also view myself as an 'English Coach', as I place a very big emphasis on ensuring that students have the right frame of mind when approaching studying English. Confidence, and belief in their own ideas, is so important for students to have, and all too often this lack of confidence is instrumental in why they are not performing as they should be.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you and hope that it helps.My passion and focus is English, and I aim to pass this passion on to all of my students through lessons that are filled with fun, engaging discussion and exciting tasks. My particular areas of expertise is helping students to prepare for English GCSE examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I have held the post of Head of English at a school in Staffordshire, and I have led a team of exceptional English teachers. Having held other management positions in other schools as well, with management focus on both key Stage 3 and 4, I have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge that I can now put to good use within the sphere of personal tuition.

I am also an experienced examiner, having marked for a leading exam body for five years now. This has helped me enormously to build up a very clear understanding of what exam boards require from students.

Last year's results saw a continuation of my fine record of exam success, where my class achieved 100% A-C in their GCSE examinations. My current year 11 class are predicted to have 5 A*'s, 10 A grades and fifteen B grades. This will be the finest set of English class results in the school's history.

I have built up tremendously successful working relationship with my clients, and parents who I currently work for, and worked for, have happily created testimonials for me which I would be able to provide for your perusal upon request.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable person with many years of language learning experience so I know myself how hard it can feel at times when learning a language!
I hold a BA in Modern Language Studies (French & Spanish) and a Certificate in Italian with the Open University.
I have A levels in both French [B] and Spanish [B] as well as GCSEs.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent 3 months living and voluntarily teaching English in Costa Rica.

I spent close to a year weekly voluntarily teaching local immigrants to communicate in English.

I spent 2 years working in a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant for children with Special Educational Needs.

Since 2012, I have been working for Lindsay Does Languages, my own language tuition business. I now tutor online.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that rows and rows of vocab are not only monotonous but also repetitive, and dare I say it, boring!
There are many more fun and varied ways to teach and learn a language. It's important to remember that everyone has different learning styles and what works with one brilliantly, may go straight over an other's head! However, a positive and energetic approach is always necessary.

Personal Description:
My name is Marco, during the past twelve years, I have taught the Italian language in England and abroad.
My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- organization of workshops, conferences, public lectures and roundtables with teachers, heads of schools, deans of universities to enhance the presence of the Italian language teaching in Guatemala among schools and private and State funded Universities;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;
- creation of strategic networks among various educational partners both locally and internationally for the provision of scholarships for students and teachers in need;


I am graduate in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University Ca' Foscari of Venice and I possess the ITALS Master's Degree in Teaching and promotion of the Italian language and culture to foreigners.

At December 2007 I graduated with success from the ITALS M. A. Degree in Teaching and Promotion of Italian Language and Culture of the University Ca' Foscari of Venice. The topic of my dissertation was linked to how organize an MFL interactive teaching unit in a class composed of students with different abilities.
At the end of May 2008 I published Mosaico Italia, a book on Italian Language and Culture that can be used with students with an Intermediate level of Italian (level B1 of the Common European Reference for Languages). This book aims to provide a didactic instrument to investigateItalian reality.

I added to my knowledge gained 'in the field' by taking the Master's Degree in Education at Birkbeck, University of London, graduating in November 2011 with Distinction. Success on this program entailed my being able to integrate effectively concrete work experience with theoretical knowledge in such a way that I deepened my analytical skills, overall.

Teaching Experience:

My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;

Tutoring Approach:

think I am able to enhance the skills of low performing students by individualizing teaching methods and processes. My teaching style focuses very much on the outcomes my students wish to achieve by improving their Italian, be they grammatical, written or conversational. I am dedicated to helping my students learn and improve their Italian in an atmosphere that encourages interaction, listening, feedback and empathy. Above all, I like to make the process of learning Italian a fun experience that enriches my students' personal and professional lives through a sense of achievement.
The teaching techniques, which could be useful in a Foreign Language Tuition, are those in which communication between the tutor and the student is always is promoted. In this regard, mutual interaction and collaboration lead to a more natural learning of the language. This process follows a teaching method where the humanist-affective approach is used to practice the basic and integrated linguistic abilities while learning a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst planning my lessons I am thinking about each student individually. Firstly, I need to make a short test to define level of knowledge within the language before planning the individual scheme of work. I enjoy working with people of different ages and from various background. I am always happy to include spheres of personal interest and especially requested knowledge in to the course. Have wide knowledge of Russian History, Art & Literature.

Personal Description:
I am currently a Civil Engineer working for Atkins Global, having graduated from Imperial College London. Having studied through all levels of school I can appreciate how useful having a source of targeted teaching is, this is the service I hope to provide. Having participated in youth organisations and group bursary projects I have had the opportunity to work with people from many different backgrounds and cultures, this allows me to tailor to individuals. I am a STEMNET ambassador for which I volunteer in various schools and teach pupils how to apply classroom knowledge to real world scenarios. I play hockey in my spare time as well as recreationally painting to focus my time on activities outside of work.

Teaching Experience:

I am a STEMNET ambassador. For this role I work with young students in interactive workshops to engage them in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
I was enrolled in a mentoring scheme in university, for which I was assigned multiple students. I provided guidance with work and general university issues.
During my time at secondary school and sixth form, I worked in sessions with younger students during which time we would cover material which they were struggling with.
Participated in a youth organisation, BSS Shaka, for which in my role as a senior member would organise and run weekly workshops which focused upon cultural learning as well as sporting activities.

Tutoring Approach:

Methods for teaching are subject to the individual therefore I strive to find a method which worst best for both parties. Aside from teaching the core syllabus I also would like to know what you struggle with such that more emphasis can be put upon that. I prefer to set up a dialog with my students such that the teaching is more interactive. I will prepare a lesson plan, and set students questions to work on between sessions; anything which they are unsure of can be covered in the next session.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Oviedo with a BA in Spanish and another in English. I obtained my qualified teacher status in Spain via a Posgraduate course and when coming to the UK I obtained the validation of QTS for overseas trained teachers.

I am currently finishing a second master´s degree in the UK with a view to continuing to PhD in the near future.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in Secondary Schools both in Spain and the UK.

I also have experience as a private tutor for adults and young adults in both countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tailor the class to the specific needs and tastes of the student - specially the former is usually dismissed in class practices, but I believe in the importance of creating personal bonds with the area of study, which in the case of languages enables the student to digest and comprehend the new information in a different way. I personally vouch for after classes activities such as reading and watching films in the original language as a subtle but strong foundation for language proficiency.

Regarding classroom techniques, I believe in a combination of the Communicative Approach and more traditional techniques - I have access to abundant and varied resources for various levels. I am also keen on informal speaking classes for those willing to learn or improve their language away from the tiranny of grammar.

I have some experience preparing for various exams: GCSE, A-Levels and DELE.

I additionally offer specialised support for those studying Spanish at University level - which often implies a further understanding of the cultural and historical elements beyond the language. As a philologist, I can also offer support in more technical aspects such as linguistics (historical, biological and grammatical), phonetics and especially literature, my field of expertise. Contact me for details in that respect.

I offer assistance in writing essays in Spanish - correcting spelling and grammatical inaccuracies.

Personal Description:
I'm a certified teacher working as an online tutor for students in Norfolk and Suffolk. In university I had the opportunity to study a variety of subjects, including English, psychology, history and statistics. I'm able to tutor children, adolescents and adults in the following subjects and levels:

English/Literacy for Key Stages 1-3, GCSE and A-Level.
Maths for Key Stages 1-3.

Psychology (GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate)
History (KS3 and GCSE)

IT/Computing (Primary, KS3 & adults)
English as a Second Language (for adults)

Currently I offer all of my tuition online, mainly via Skype. I also make use of an online whiteboard for maths lessons, and occasionally for English grammar.

See the "Subject Taught" section below for rates per subject and level. Computing/IT and English as a Second Language for adults are set at a discounted rate.

Don`t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Teaching Experience:

In the UK, I have experience tutoring for two years in London, Surrey and East Anglia. I've also tutored students for four years across a number of Canadian universities, such as the University of Toronto.

Tutoring Approach:

For younger students, I assess them on their first appointment to see where their strengths and weaknesses are. I then focus the lessons on the areas they need improvement in, using an individualized approach that is suitable for that particular student. I also help students prepare for examinations, such as the GCSE; in this case I mostly focus on giving them tasks and questions that resemble what they will face on their tests.

For A-level and degree students, I'm usually asked to provide assistance with a specific task. For example, I've helped my students construct outlines in order to structure their essays, answer typical questions that will come up on their exams, and proof read their essays to check content, clarity and grammar. I can also clarify theories that are difficult to understand and help students generate ideas for their thesis.

Personal Description:
My name is Michael and I teach private one to one drum kit lessons to people of all ages, in and around the Yorkshire area. I have been playing the drum kit for over 20 years and started playing at the early age of 11. Since then I have been in many bands and performed in many venues in and around the Yorkshire area.
After studying music at school in Scotland and forming my first band I soon found myself addicted to the drum kit. I decided I wanted to further my skills by getting private drum kit lessons which helped me gain my Standard Grade/GCSE and Higher Grade/A-Level in Music. I then furthered this by studying a BTEC in Popular Music at Huddersfield Technical College and a BA (Hons) in Popular Music at the University of Sheffield. I have also recently completed my PGCE in Life Long Learning at the University of Huddersfield and hold QTLS with IfL.

Teaching Experience:

I had my first teaching experience when I was 16 years old at a music workshop during the summer holidays where I was involved in teaching groups of people how to play the drum kit within a band setting. At the end of the workshops each group that had formed had to perform their songs to the public.

Since then I always had a desire to pursue my teaching and in 2006 I started teaching at Rhythm Inc Music Tuition in Barnsley. Initially, I only had a couple of students that I would teach in my spare time between my job and other commitments. However, more students started coming and having only started with a couple I soon had enough to become self-employed and put my all into my teaching.

In 2007 I started teaching at Take 2 Music Academy in Birdwell, Barnsley and at Rockem Music in Rotherham. I have taught at other private music schools and in local schools in the Yorkshire area. I also have experience delivering group workshops within both private and local schools.

Currently, in 2012 I opened my own teaching studio based in Wakefield, and continue to teach at Rhythm Inc Music Tuition in Barnsley, Take 2 Music Academy in Birdwell, Barnsley and at Rockem Music in Rotherham. I have recently completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Lifelong Learning and hold QTLS with IfL (Institute for Learning)

I am fully CRB and DBS checked and currently have a 100% pass rate for students sitting their graded exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are taught on a one to one basis using two drum kits, one for the student and one for myself. Choice of electric of acoustic drum kits. Lessons are taught at the students own pace and involves practical work.

GROOVES

Personal Description:
Hi there, I am a patient and passionate Mandarin teacher. I am happy to help anyone who are interested in Mandarin and Chinese culture at all levels. Love smile, love teaching, love life.

Teaching Experience:

I volunteered as a mandarin teacher in Sparkenhoe Primary School, Leicester;

I had a teaching internship and got Excellent grade in a local school for 3 months;

My first degree was English Education and got the title of The Excellent Graduate in the University;

I worked as a private tutor during my university life.

Tutoring Approach:

Interest is the best teacher. My approach to tutoring is to inspire your interests and needs for Mandarin study, therefore it is tailor-made.
