Personal Description:
Native Spanish speaker. A self-motivated and hard working Spanish Teacher with experience designing lessons according to student's needs/requirements. I am able to identify learning difficulties and quickly adapt lessons to bring out the best for each one of the students. An effective communicator

Teaching Experience:

Company: PLAN INTERNATIONAL .Woking , Surrey
Freelance Spanish Teacher: Novice, beginners and intermediate Students
September 2006 - April 2007./ February 2008 - April 2008.

Chris Polatch Foreign Languages, Courses
Freelance Spanish Teacher: Novice, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Students - January 2008 up to now.

Private Tuition: July 2006 up to now.

April 2005 - March 2006 Freelance Spanish Teacher for novice, beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Institution: ILISA. Panama City - Panama

Tutoring Approach:

The communicative approach centered in developing students' skills and abilities is my preferred tutoring approach, but it depends on the students needs. In the first lesson there is an assessment of competence and a learning style evaluation so I can easily tailor the Spanish course according to the needs of the student.
In all cases, Spanish classes include grammar, written exercises, talking and listening, and the writing practices are carried out through the homework (optional)
Also important the mutual evaluation at the end of each class so that both student and myself can correct/improve something that is not going well in order to fulfill mutual expectations, and have an interesting, funny and efficient Spanish lesson every class.

Personal Description:
Qualified and experienced German tutor for 13 years working mainly with adults who need German for business and personal reasons.

Teaching Experience:

Have been teaching German as foreign language for 5 years in South Africa as part of a naval project in collaboration with the Bundeswehr. Furthermore have been tutoring individuals for the past 13 years (from child carers to tour operators). Have upgraded my skills with the Goethe Institute in Cape Town and also attended some teaching seminars of which one was with the German Defense Force at their language school in Cologne. Have a degree in languages as well as a national diploma in German teaching didactic.

Tutoring Approach:

I think that communication is a priority and that a course should be customized according to the specific client's need. I believe that learning a language should be fun and that even adults learn easier with games and topics that they are interested in. The grammar and writing skills should be integrated in the learning process without boring the learner. The other important aspect is to introduce German culture and and Germany to the client in order to get bigger picture of language and its context.

Statistics, Statistical Software (SPSS, STATA, R...), Economics and Market Research with my work experience, my two degrees in Statistics and Statistical Sciences and Techniques, and my MSc in Transport and Business Management at Imperial College London. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and at all levels of experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have a vast experience instructing Maths, Statistics and Economics to students, undergraduates and postgraduates. This includes sessions to entrance exams to university and preparation of finals exams to achieve success results. As a research scheme, I have implemented an educational programme for people with learning difficulties, training study skills throughout work experience achieving important results in my students. Moreover, I have participated as a lecturer at various science and business masters courses.

Tutoring Approach:

My duties include devising and implementing effective teaching techniques in order to maximise each students potential. I am also able to identify students with learning difficulties and address their specific needs within different learning styles in order to support their further progress. It also important to develop an understanding of their subjects, preparing them well for exams, creating a confidence environment between the subjects and themselves.

Personal Description:
I live in Sutton Coldfield and work in Birmingham. I am currently a Head of Department at a high achieving selective grammar I have been teaching over 13 years and also work for three major exam boards. I have a current and up to date DBS as required in the profession. I have a passion for teaching and love my job. My aim is to inspire students to attain the most they possibly can and believe with the right support that I can deliver the improvement that other tutors can not. My teaching, tutoring and examination experience put me in a unique position to meet student needs at any level. My A level results for Economics are currently for both AS and A2, in the top 8% of the country and I demand the highest standards from my students. I would describe myself as honest and reliable and am happy to provide references and evidence of any professional concern you may have.

I am both a qualified and experienced professional with access to a range of materials from past exam papers, revision guides for all exam boards as well as my own revision guides/notes based upon my examination work. I offer ongoing support outside of structured lesson time. I have tutored online around the world and this medium allows much greater flexibility and is beginning to meet the needs of all learners. Although you may be skeptical at first (I was) I have been receiving very positive comments regarding online tuition and is an exciting new development that allows access to the tutor that most meets your needs from the comfort of your own home with the usual geographical constraints.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach all the GCSE, AS and A2 Economics at my school as well as teaching A level Business. I work for three major exam boards, CIE international for GCSE and AS papers, (Econ) OCR AS and AQA for A2. I have been involved in examination work for over 8 years. In addition I have experience of tutoring all exam boards at both AS and A2 and have tutored first year undergraduates from the University of Aston and Nottingham.

Tutoring Approach:

Each individual has different needs. Tutoring is a student orientated service. Firstly, I would identify the desired outcomes of the tuition sessions and how we can achieve those outcomes. Depending on the individual this may mean starting by revising work that has been covered at school/college over a period of time but not understood or it could be regular support with work that is currently being covered. In my experience exam preparation and technique is of vital importance and I aim to teach and support students to increase their individual grade potential through knowledge of the exam, it is important that a student is well prepared going into an examination.

I offer both one to one sessions and also run online group lessons for 50% of my one to one fee. The great thing about this is the focus on exam technique and the addition support you can receive online and part of a select group. (You do not have to provide the group)

Above all and what ever tutor you choose it is vital that you get the right tutor with the right experience to get the best possible outcome, please email me to find out more.

Personal Description:
Former business journalist, Sky News editor, international conference producer in Moscow, Russian-English interpreter and now teacher & private tutor. Russian and French degree from UCL with teacher training (Kingston University) experience in French, Spanish and Latin (ages 11-18)). I also specialise in numeracy and literacy, helping young children and adults gain an A-C grade in their GCSEs.
I love working with children (I have students as young as 7) and adults alike and have plenty of materials, worksheets and textbooks for languages as well as mathematics and English as a Foreign Language/TOEIC/Citizenship tests
(PS: I have a great talent for working with children or adults who find it difficult to concentrate and showing them how to not only learn but also REMEMBER :D)

Teaching Experience:

Many years as an English teacher to foreign children, students and Russian businessmen and two years in a secondary school teaching modern languages to children aged 11-18. I have a great record of working with children who have ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspberger's and other learning "difficulties" (I like to call them learning differences:-)) Due to my ability to get "difficult" children to enjoy their lessons by learning their way, I was asked by my school to work with Year 11 children in the school"s EBD unit one-on-one in order to ensure they get an A-C grade in their GCSE English and maths exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Although very serious and focused on results, I do understand that everyone has their own approach to learning and my best skill is in introducing a range of learning techniques and study skills (some of them are even fun ;-)) to the student that they can use across all subjects! I have a special talent for working with a different range of students, especially those who are very bright/intelligent but who have difficulty retaining/remembering information

Personal Description:
Hello there, this is Clair here, I`m 24 and am currently undertaking a chemical research PHD in the field of materials chemistry at UCL. I graduated from my undergraduate Chemistry degree at UCL and prior to this I lived in Portsmouth having moved there from Malaysia when I was 13. This coming September I am in line to be secretary of the Chemical and Physical Society, UCL's oldest society.

Aside from Chemistry I am also like running, taking photographs, going to see art, films, music and learning more about the world around me e.g. economics, politics and sociology.

Teaching Experience:

In recent years I have been in junior schools working with children during their science practicals. I have also had regular work tutoring one to one and small groups of KS3-GCSE students and have also been called in to help particular A-level/BTEC science classes. At university I mentor to undergraduate students.

Tutoring Approach:

During our tutoring session we'll do the normal thing of going through past papers but also work hard at actual understanding of the concepts. With me you will be able to understand and enjoy complex scientific and mathematical ideas and consequently get the grades you want and deserve. Hopefully we can work together to make this happen.

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:
Hello, I've just finished a 1 year masters course in mathematics at Cambridge university although I began my undergraduate studies with an adventure to Nottingham to study medicine. I graduated from Nottingham in 2006 but during my first year of work rethought my career plan and decided to switch to maths. I completed my first year as a junior doctor (the 'F1' year) and then returned to Newcastle to study maths. I graduated top of my year from Newcastle's 4 year maths masters program with a first class honours degree in June 2014. After spending a year tutoring maths I went to Cambridge to do the 1 year masters (part III, focussing mainly on algebra and number theory) which I successfully completed. Having done 2 degrees I'm no stranger to studying and exams and after finishing my course I thought it would be fun to spend some time tutoring in a subject I love.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in the university's maths drop in service 'Maths Aid' earlier this year after taking a 2 day course on tutoring provided by the university. Over the summer holiday I tutored undergraduate students for exams in both engineering and statistics and I also have experience tutoring A-level mathematics. I also spent some of my time in Nottingham teaching medical students practical skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed, friendly approach to tutoring. I normally find that working through examples helps to both reinforce the material and to suggest new topics to discuss and practice but if you prefer a different approach to learning I'd be happy to discuss that with you.

Personal Description:
I am an Oxbridge graduate and dedicated teacher and tutor of Classics. I completed my undergraduate degree at Robinson College, University of Cambridge and hope to soon complete an MA in History of Art. Outside of my teaching and tuition work, I am a firm believer in lifelong learning and am currently attending an Italian evening class, to improve my understanding of the language.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher, holding a PGCE from the University of Cambrige and Qualified Teacher Status. I have 3 years of teaching experience, including at two top grammar schools (The Tiffin Girls' School and Chelmsford County High School for Girls). I have taught Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation across all Key Stages, and have extensive experience of preparing students for public examinations. My most recent cohort of students achieved 78% at A* and 100% at grades A* - B at GCSE; 100% of my A Level students achieved grades A* - B. In addition, I have 5 years of experience of private tuition, ranging from preparing students for university applications in Classics to building confidence in both Latin and Greek for younger pupils. I have prepared numerous students for university and Oxbridge applications and specialise in interview preparation.
I have also taught at Latin Camp for the last 3 years during the summer holidays, as I am a firm believer in every student having the ability and opportunity to learn Latin - I am dedicated to my subject and enjoy the opportunity to share ideas and resources with my colleagues, to ensure that I continue to develop my teaching practice.
My particular teaching research interests focus on tailoring language tuition to students who do not speak English as a first language and developing understanding of learners from different cultures, in order to ensure that they achieve their academic best.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to cater for the needs of each student as an individual learner; no two students are the same and, from my experience both as a classroom teacher and as a private tutor, I understand the importance of preparing tasks that will help, stretch and challenge the individual. I am a firm believer in ensuring that the basics of language learning are strong, with a focus on grammatical knowledge and understanding. I understand that students have different barriers to learning and aims and ambitions they wish to realise, and I ensure to take these into consideration when preparing lessons and learning activities.
When learning Latin and Greek, recall of accidence, syntax and vocabulary is crucial to ensure that reading Classical texts, the aim of learning ancient languages, comes naturally. I am very patient and understand from my own learning of Classical languages that everyone has their own particular areas of difficulty; I aim to help students through understanding tricky constructions and reading challenging texts with patience, humour and dedication. For students entering public examinations, past paper practice is key and I ensure that students are as well prepared as they can be. For Oxbridge applicants, interview practice and contemplating issues surrounding the subject, along with experience of reading classical texts under pressure in a test or interview environment, is important to ensure that they shine during the interview process.
Regardless of the level that the student is working at, be it beginning learning Latin or Greek, sitting their Classical Civilisation A Level or preparing for an Oxbridge interview, I am a firm believer in drawing out the full potential of all my tutees and aim to help students achieve their very best.
