Personal Description:
I am a qualified IT specialist and taught Computing and IT at secondary school. I am currently working as a tutor within schools and privately teaching English, Maths, Physics and IT. I am very patient, and approachable. I have years of experience working with both young people and adults, as in the past I was responsible for the training and development of 30 staff. I have carried out training needs analysis and recognized training and development resulting from the gaps identified. I helped the organisation to achieve both Investors In People and Charter Mark awards.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience training and development of employees in an organisation, working with consultants to develop training courses and workshops for the staff. I have taught very successfully for over 5 years in schools and have got really good feedback from students and parents. I am passionate about teaching and committed to helping students make real academic progress. I take a holistic view, I am supportive and sensitive to the students/tutees needs. I am able to work with tutees with special educational needs as I will differentiate resources accordingly. I generally agree and set targets, which are regularly checked to ensure progress towards the learning outcome. In tutoring, resources are tailored to meet the learner's needs. I have been developing my pedagogy and teaching skills by working in schools that provide education for students with special needs in particular those on the Autism Spectrum.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring sessions are interactive, fun and stimulating as I believe it is important to help students explore and understand their skills and knowledge base. I support each student in all aspects of learning, including homework support, speaking, listening, reading, writing, practical and functional skills, students undertake assessments to improve both their subject knowledge and examination results. I love this profession because you never stop learning; every new part requires research into a historical epoch or subject creating an expansive remit which no course I can imagine could afford.

Personal Description:
I am originally from Ayrshire but have spent the last eight years south of the border studying and working. I have worked as an actor, singer and songwriter and continue to do so whilst teaching. I have now moved back to Ayrshire to live and work and continue to be creative.

Teaching Experience:

*Co-founder and Director of a theatre company
*Director of Fringe based theatrical work
*Drama workshop leader
*Drama teaching assistant with final year university students
*Trainee college lecturer

Tutoring Approach:

I am very passionate about what i do and have worked with many different people of a variety of ages and backgrounds. I have studied the works of many theatre practitioners whilst in and out of education, ranging from the naturalism of Stanislavski through to the forum theatre of Augusto Boal, to name but a few. However my goal when teaching is to have a "thinking performer" who knows themselves and the character and connects with what they're doing rather than merely "pretending". I'm an approachable person with a strong work ethic and strive to push someone to reach their potential.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Modern Foreign Languages teacher with experience of teaching Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A Level at secondary school and tutoring English, French and Spanish privately.

I am a hard-working and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about teaching and modern foreign languages. Therefore, in addition to teaching French and Spanish in secondary schools, I have also started a language tuition business so that I can support people with their language learning and development of their linguistic skills.

Teaching Experience:

- During my teacher training, I worked at two secondary schools where I taught French and Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and I also spent a few days working in a primary school observing and assisting teachers.

- During my NQT year, I worked at a secondary school in Trowbridge where I taught Spanish to Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and French to Key Stage 3.

- As part of my Spanish degree, I worked as an English Language Assistant in a school in Madrid for an academic year.

- I have worked part time as a tutor from the age of 16 teaching French, Spanish and English.

- I have also recently become an External Examiner for Edexcel (one of the main British exam boards) which has given me more insight into what examiners look for in successful candidates.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher as I believe that it is important to have a fun and positive atmosphere where my students can feel comfortable, gain confidence and also have a bit of fun.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD Candidate at the Glasgow Caledonian University, with Wireless Optical Communication as my area of research. I have earned my Bachelors' and Masters' degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering, and have been a top-performer, academically, all throughout my education. My stronghold is basic as well as advanced Mathematics. I am also well-versed with the core concepts of Electronics and wired/wireless Communication.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students for more than 5 years working part-time whilst I was pursuing my bachelors and masters degree. I have taught young students Maths, Science and English. I have also been catering to the needs of students pursuing higher education, specifically in Electrical and Communications engineering, where I helped them out with core concepts of related subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in active learning, a quality which I try to bestow to my students as well. All students have their own way of understanding concepts, and each takes his/her own time to grasp those concepts. I am very patient with all my students and try to explain things in a manner in which they would easily comprehend. I also encourage my students to take down notes, which I believe is an easier and faster way of learning things.

Personal Description:
I am passionate about languages and I love every aspect about the process of language learning and teaching. Growing up I was always surrounded by books. My parents' personal library was incredibly diverse and spanned many genres of fiction and factual works, while also including classics of European and World literature. Exposure to such a wide variety of authors instilled in me a fascination with communication cross-culturally - which played a great role in my decision to enrol in a language degree. Since then, the training and experience that I have gained at different universities, in both the UK and abroad, have helped me develop a range of teaching methods meeting the needs of different learners. I firmly believe that teaching allows you to impart knowledge to others while also enabling you to grow as a person yourself.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Italian speaker and a qualified teacher of Italian with more than 7 years of experience in teaching on both undergraduate courses at university level and evening classes for adults. I am currently running a number of classes on Italian language and literature at the University of Leicester, besides teaching for the university Adult Programme 'Languages at Leicester'. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious American teaching scholarship, the Fulbright Assistantship, to teach at Wheaton College Massachusetts (U.S.) during the academic year 2013/2014. I am currently completing a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Leicester and I hold a Masters in 'Teaching Italian as a Second Language' from Milan's Catholic University. Prior to moving to Leicester, in 2010-2011 I worked at the University of Kent, where I completed my teaching training as requirement of my Masters. I like to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in language teaching and I attend language conferences, either as a speaker or as audience, on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to combine traditional methods with more innovative approaches, tending to regard the textbook as a tool to be integrated with fresh, lively and more personalised material, using visual stimuli (commercials and videos for example) as a way of enhancing this experience. I believe that these methods play a vital role in instilling practical communicative language skills that students can then reproduce in a creative and spontaneous way. I tend to follow a Communicative Approach, where the stress is on oral communication, while interactive student-centred learning is encouraged. Based on the acknowledgement that all communication has a social purpose, this approach focuses on language as a medium of communication. The aim is to guide students towards the acquisition of a notional/functional syllabus, inclusive of both notions (meanings and concepts to communicate) and the language needed to do so. The learning environment has to be a positive one, and with my tutees I always make sure that they regard me as somebody they can trust. My students have always responded positively to my teaching, which is reflected in the Award in Excellence in Service I received from the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies at Wheaton College (U.S.) in 2014.

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Jessica and I offer private German tuition. Whether for your GCSEs, A levels or an upcoming holiday, I can help you improve your language skills in a friendly, informal environment. Though born in the UK, I have strong German roots as my mum is German and I was brought up bilingually. I have an A* in GCSE German, an A in A level German (before they did A* for A level!) and a first class joint honours degree in French and German with distinction in spoken German from the University of Nottingham. I lived in Berlin for three years after my first degree, and go to visit family in the Black Forest region a couple of times a year. I am currently training as a Speech and Language Therapist via De Montfort University, so know too well what it means to learn and study for exams. I am DBS checked

I look forward to hearing from you.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a foreign language assistant in Trier, an English teacher in a Berlin Kindergarten and a Business English teacher in Paris, giving me valuable language teaching experience with children, adolescents and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I absolutely love Germany, the German language and German grammar - hopefully that enthusiasm comes across in my lessons. I ask that students tell me in advance what they would like to achieve from my tutoring, and always ensure I prepare accordingly. When teaching I like to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere, and welcome feedback at any point.
