Personal Description:
Emme offers private flute and music theory tuition.

Emme began her musical studies at the age of nine, receiving music scholarships at both her Prep school and the prestigious Oxford High School for Girls up until she left. She made her Concerto debut at the age of seventeen, playing Mouquet's La Flute de Pan Concerto, and successfully gained both the DipABRSM and LRSM in performance before moving to Manchester in 2005 to study at the Royal Northern College of Music. At the RNCM Emmeline studied with Richard Davis, Linda Verrier, Michael Cox, and Laura Jellicoe culminating in a final recital in 2009 that included works by Messiaen, Liebermann and George Crumb. Since graduating in 2009 she has continued to learn, play and teach the flute as well as the recorder and music theory.

As an orchestral flute player, Emme has performed in orchestras conducted by Hansjorg Schellenbeger, Sir Mark Elder, Gianndrea Noseda and Jacques Van Steen, just to name a few. She has performed across England as well as travelling to Italy to work under Noseda in his Stresa Festival and to Spain as part of the Word Orchestra. During 2008 and 2009, Emme successfully competed to become the only chosen flute player to take part in The BBC Philharmonics Professional Experience Scheme, and since then she regularly performs and records with the Orchestra in and around Manchester. She has also played with the Bampton Classical Opera, the London-Irish Symphony Orchestra, the Oxford Concerto Orchestra, and Stockport Symphony Orchestra and has featured as principal flautist on a number of recordings, notably for the soundtrack to the film Tortoise in Love, and on recordings for Polyphonic Records. She is currently performing in the touring hit musical Phantom of the Opera, as well as taking part in sessions for shows and TV in the UK.

Outside of orchestral playing Emme also performs chamber music and solo works. She is one of the founding members of Northern Quarter Ensemble, a flexible chamber group providing bespoke musicians for special events; most recently performing for royality at the Paris Opera Garnier. She often gives solo recitals and performs at weddings in Manchester, Oxford and Cheltenham. Her last concerto performance was just last year where she performed the Ibert Concerto with Oxford Studio Orchestra.

Outside of playing Emme enjoys teaching. During her time in Manchester she has taught privately, as well as for Lancashire, the Wirral and Bolton Music Services. She is also involved the BBC Philharmonic's outreach schemes, most recently being appointed the wind coach for the Family Orchestra projects in the North-West of England.

She has now moved to Oxfordshire and London and teaches at Preparatory Schools in both areas.

Teaching Experience:

Emme has over 10 years teaching experience, teaching both privately and for Lancashire and Bolton Music Services. She currently teaches at Rendcomb College, St Hughs, Ferndale Prep and Bruern Abbey. Over this time she has acquired a 100% pass rate for pupils taking exams.

If you would be interested in learning with Emme, then please get in contact to enquire about lessons!

Tutoring Approach:

She is happy to teach those who want to learn purely for enjoyment but is also experienced in preparing students for ABRSM Graded exams. She teaches all abilities; from complete beginner to advanced players.

Personal Description:
I am 56 years old, am a qualified teacher with 15 years experience. I am an easy-going reliable person who likes to make my students feel at ease at all times.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching seconday school students since qualifying in 1998. I have had two full-time posts, worked as a supply teacher as well as having private students. I have worked in Inner London, Outer London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire schools. I have also worked in France at a small private school during the '80's, predominantly teaching adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach French using the native tongue as much as possible. I use my own resources although I use the Internet for ideas whenever it's suitable.
For Maths I follow the syllabus laid down by whichever examining board the student is using and resources come from a wide variety of places usually from where I have recently been teaching. I gather information from colleagues who sometimes have great ideas. I like to be able to go through past papers with students marking work as we go through a course.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Physics and BSc Maths/Physics Jt Honours 1st Class. I am a co-author of over 60 peer reviewed papers in science journals and was a research scientist for 27 years in the world renowned Daresbury Laboratory of the Science and Technology Facilities Council which helps keep the UK at the forefront of international science and technology. I ran the operations of a world class X-ray photoelectron spectrometer for a wide range of applications in physics, chemistry, biology and material science.
I am a qualified martial arts instructor and teach the Chinese Wing Chun system. I believe sports can contribute towards an all round education and under proper supervision, martial arts can offer health benefits and is beneficial for mental and physical discipline. I am also interested in the promotion of the Chinese language because I am of Chinese origin and can speak Cantonese and Mandarin fluently. I also enjoy salsa dancing, music, fell walking, yoga and travel.

Teaching Experience:

Although semi-retired, I am still passionate about science and after gaining my PGCE teaching qualification in 2012, I am now embarking on helping GCSE and A level students with private tuition. My vast experience in training postgraduate students and working with scientists in solving real problems both academically and in industry brings in an invaluable real life dimension to the learning experience of the students.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is conducted in a relaxed but studious atmosphere and is tailored to individual needs with realistic targets. I use effective questioning and past examination papers for assessment which allow students to monitor their own progress.
I was a 16 years old migrant from Hong Kong when I first came to England in 1973, so I can certainly relate to problems such as racism, misunderstanding of and by others, loneliness, lack of empathy and learning barriers.

Personal Description:
I am currently offering tuition services in Mathematics at high school level - (National 4, 5, Higher and Advanced Higher).
I am born and bred in Glasgow.
I am based in Bishopbriggs, however, I am willing to travel further to other parts of Glasgow to tutor others.
I am a 24 year old Scottish individual who has a strong passion in Mathematics which led me into studying the subject at university as well as leading me into private tuition.
I am a patient and thorough tutor with over 2 years tutoring experience, eager to help students succeed in their academic careers and make the best of their experience. Studied Mathematics for 3 years at Heriot-Watt University.
I have been tutoring students for over 2 years; tutoring many students in both high school and university.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students for over 2 years; tutoring many students in both high school and university.
The majority of my students achieved at a B or higher in their exams.
I studied Mathematics for 3 years at Heriot-Watt University, allowing me to have a diverse knowledge and skills in dealing problem solving and equations.
In the past, I have tutored students all over glasgow. In addition, I have also volunteered to help students in Strathclyde University with their resits over the summer. I volunteered to help students with standard grade mathematics in an after school tutoring facility in Lenize/ Kirkintilloch.

Tutoring Approach:

Generally, my tutoring techniques are quite structured and detailed.I ensure that whatever topic I am teaching is explained in the simplest way possible to understand.
My main goal is to identify pupils' weaknesses, focus on those areas and look and see how to improve. I also make sure my students understand the subject fully before moving. Understanding Mathematics is important to passing exams and achieving good grades and I am able to do this by providing detailed examples and solutions. I make sure to go over each topic in detail and provide examples for my students to do. Each person learns differently so I either give them notes I have written beforehand or I let them write up notes in bullets points and formulas which can be good for muscle memory. My main focus is past paper revision. As I believe if you can complete the past papers easily, you can past the exam easily.

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!.

Personal Description:
My name is Davínia and I am a Spanish language assistant (MLA) in Aberdeenshire. I am from Alicante (Spain) and I am a native bilingual speaker of Spanish and Catalan. Moreover, I have the C2-Proficiency level of English (certified by Cambridge University).

Regarding my qualifications, I am a fully-qualified teacher of English as a foreign language in Spain since I have the equivalent title to the PGCE by the University of Alicante (Spain). I have also certificates by the University of Alicante, the International University Menéndez Pelayo and the Pennsylvania State University that show my experience and knowledge teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

Previously, I gained my M.A. in Applied Linguistics and Language Acquisition in Multilingual Contexts at the Universitat de Barcelona. Here I developed my knowledge about bilingual and multilingual education and societies, Sociolinguistics, languages in contact, methodology and statistics. Moreover, I specialized in Educational Sociolinguistics with my M.A. Thesis "From Primary to Secondary School: a Case Study of Changes in Language Attitudes among Students of the Bilingual Programs in Alacant". Results and conclusions of this M.A. Thesis have been presented in several international congresses (AESLA, 1st International Congress on Bilingual Education at the University of Cordoba, XVI International Congress from the Spanish Society of Language and Literatura Didactics among others).

I also received graduate education in Hispanic Linguistics at the Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA) where I learned everything related to Phonology, Syntax and First Language Acquisition. Finally, I got my BA in English Philology at the University of Alicante (Spain) majoring in Linguistics and Catalan.

In my free time, I love swimming, watching TV shows and films as well as going to the theatre to enjoy plays and musicals.

Availability:
Tuesday from 8am until 12pm.
Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm until 8pm.
Friday from 2pm until 8pm.
Saturday and Sunday from 8am until 8pm.
I am willing to travel around Aberdeen city and the surrounding areas of Cults, Peterculter and Banchory.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working as a Spanish language assistant at two high schools in Aberdeenshire (Scotland) and I am also in charged of the Spanish Club for the staff members of one of the high schools.

I also worked as a teacher or English as a foreign language at the private academy Climbing English Centre (Alicante) where I gained experience teaching English to people of any age range: from babies who were 2 years old up to elderly people who were 60/70 going through teenagers who were between 13 up to 18 years old or adults trying to get official certificates from Cambridge University and TRINITY. I also offered private lessons to students in primary, secondary and post-secondary education.

Moreover, as part of my teaching qualification, I did my internship of teaching English as a foreign language ate the bilingual state high school IES San Vicente (San Vicente del Raspeig, Alicante).

As part of my experience at Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA), I received teaching instruction and worked as a Spanish lecturer in basic and intermediate undergraduate Spanish courses.

Finally, I also worked as au pair in Oxfordshire (England). I was in charged of three siblings who were 13, 10 and 9. I had to take care of them, entertain them and teach Spanish as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

All my personal experiences learning and teaching foreign languages have shown me the important role that teachers, language assistants and tutors play in a classroom setting and, specially, in the long journey of learning a new language.

Furthermore, being a language learner for so many years has given me the ability to predict and to overcome difficulties that students may have in the process of acquiring a language.

Additionally, I believe that a language is linked to cultural aspects which enrich it and make it more interesting. This is why I look for resources that transmit the vast culture that Spanish carries and I try to create didactic materials that appeal to students' interests so as to keep them motivated and interested. I usually introduce the content and then the students have to solve a task (task-based teaching).

Based on the previous ideas, I feel working as a tutor would provide me with the perfect setting to develop my teaching skills and I am willing to contribute to my total commitment and enthusiasm to the teaching of my own culture, my two native languages and English as a foreign language.
I am also looking for new challenges in the work and research world so as to keep learning and gaining professional experience.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic Spanish Tutor with a passion for teaching at all levels and I am committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. As a native Spanish speaker, I am oriented to cultural diversity, world history, high professional standards and good planning.

Teaching Experience:

Currently, I am working part-time at Scarborough Sixth Form College as a Spanish Language Assistant (AS/A2) and Spanish Tutor (Lifelong Learning/Beginners) since 2015. Through this, I have gained valuable experience of working with young people and adults by employing strategies for differentiation in teaching and learning, as well as by adopting a creative and imaginative approach to developing resources.

In addition, during this period of time, I have been building up my experience in Private Spanish Tuition since 2014 by working with students towards basic, intermediate and advanced proficiency in the Spanish Language, including the use of the GCSE framework.

Tutoring Approach:

During lessons and conversation sessions I employ strategies that help to improve students confidence in communication by encouraging them to speak naturally and using body language (facial gestures) as well as tone of voice properly, as this is an important part of the culture in Spanish speaking countries; Also I always motivate them to continue studying languages by remarking the advantages of this for their professional and personal future. I do believe that the key to being successful in this is to reinforce the strengths of students rather than just focus on their weaknesses and the fact that every student deserves attention as well as a fair treatment according to their needs.
