Personal Description:
I recently stepped down as Head of German at the secondary school in Kidderminster, where I have led the German Department since 1995. I now work as a German classroom teacher. My decision to step down was based on the fact that I got married in July last year and now have to travel a considerable distance to my school. During my time as Head of Department, the results at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A2 have improved considerably. The pass rate for GCSE German has been approximately 80% for several years. This is higher than the national average and was based on 3 years of study to GCSE. Many pupils achieve top A*, A and B grades. The pass rate at AS and A2 has also been excellent with pupils achieving As, Bs and Cs. Former pupils have gone on to study languages at top-ranking universities and some have returned to the school in a teaching capacity for Modern Languages.

I have also worked as a tutor in Further Education teaching adults from aged 20 - 80 years from beginner's up to GCSE type work.

I am have friends in Germany and visit on a regular basis and keep up to date with new teaching ideas via the MFL Resources Forum.

I am interested in using a range of teaching strategies and personalising learning to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my classroom.

Exchanges and visits to Germany have been given prominence during my time as Head of Department.

I qualified as a teacher in my 30s following a successful career in industry as a PA and Company Translator for a German machine tool company. I have lived in Germany for a year on two different occasions. At both times, I worked for a German employer.

Teaching Experience:

Beginners' German (Key stage 3 and adults)
GCSE German
AS German
A2 German

I have experience as an oral examiner at GCSE, AS and A2.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be interested in understanding what the tutee required, using relevant materials and developing teaching strategies tailor-made to suit my tutee's needs.

I currently use a range of teaching strategies and personalise learning in my school classroom to meet the needs of learners. You Tube and ICT feature in my teaching.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher of English with many years of study, research and training in some of the world's top universities. My qualifications include a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in English Literature and the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in English, including Media Studies and Drama. My Initial Teacher Training covered all aspects of English and all abilities in the 11-18 age range. My interests, of benefit to many students especially at university level, include Critical Theory, Classical Literature, and African Literature. I have guided many students doing research and proof-read their dissertations. I have also taken the official training for one-to-one tutors rolled out by the government to complement classroom teaching. I also have experience as a GCSE English examiner for Edexcel and gained the status of Senior Examiner serving as Team Leader from the June 2013 exam series.

Teaching Experience:

My first teaching appointment came in 1988 in Cameroon where I taught English and African Literature, becoming an 'A' Level examiner for the Cameroon GCE examination board in 1990. I later took the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to the PGCE, finishing my last year as Education Student of the Year in my university and receiving a national commendation for the quality of my work. I have since taught in different schools in Kent and Medway, preparing students for exams such as Functional Skills, IELTS, GCSE, 'A' Level, IB and AEA. I have also given one-to-one tuition to looked-after teenagers under a government scheme as well as taught in a secure unit for which, in addition to enhanced disclosure CRBs, I was vetted over a six month period. My first long-term (over 3 months) supply position involved teaching GCSE English, 'A' Level English Literature, and the IB. Most of my teaching has been in selective (grammar) schools. I have also given English lessons in my local community as part of an outreach programme organised for speakers of other languages by my church where I teach Bible Studies also.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to establish the needs of the students and carefully review all available assessment records. If the student is preparing for a special exam such as the GCSE, I would start by ensuring that the student is aware of the full requirements of the exam and establish a clear plan to cover these. Alongside any such programme, I believe strongly in incorporating the fundamentals of English grammar which are sometimes overlooked in formal teaching settings. I like to build a good rapport with the student so that they are comfortable revealing possible areas of weakness that we could turn into strengths.

Personal Description:
I recently graduated with a degree in English Studies from the University of Barcelona. The degree was based on literature, history, grammar and linguistics of the English language; giving a level of expertise with the language, its use and its literature.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst studying I started working as a foreign language teacher (English), giving me the opportunity to gain classroom experience. I was in charge of a wide range of students, from five years old students to adult students. I gained experience with lesson preparation, activities preparation, coursework marking and dealing with the daily classroom obstacles. Skills that I have also applied and expand in my former work.

I also had some private students, providing one-to-one tuition in English as a foreign language.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach according to my experience, is always based on the needs of the students and the necessity that needs covering in the curriculum. After examining the tutee necessities and the lessons needed to cover, I will work in specific activities that will cover the tutee necessities.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a French native living in the UK since 2011. I am enjoying my new life in London.

Currently workin as a Care Assistant in a nursing home, I am also studying to get a teaching qualification. I have been doing one-to-one tuition for a few years now.

My students usually describe me as friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and dedicated (based on students' satisfaction survey carried out by the school)

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor in French since 2012.

I have worked with people of all ages and abilities from primary school children to adult learners.

I have helped many young people improve their level in French and achieve great results for their GCSE'S and A Level's.

I also taught evening classes with a private Language School for one year in 2012 and have gained an amazing experience in teaching. I am really enjoying sharing my knowledge and seeing my students improving, asking useful questions, and having fun after all, speaking a new language as if they had always known it.

Tutoring Approach:

Different abilities and learning difficulties are all taken into consideration to give each student a personalised work plan to meet their needs and expectations in an approach that is non judgmental.

Students are not been made to "feel stupid" about their mistakes but encouraged to learn from them.

The advantages of one-to-one tuition :

-Work on a specific skill (eg. Speaking, listening, writing or grammar)
-Learn from scratch at your own pace
-Boost your confidence (eg. You may be shy to speak in your classroom, or maybe you learned French at school years ago and need some extra help before a trip to France)
-Help your child to learn faster at school in early years.

Regular practice and commitment are strongly advised for best learning results.

NB : I travel to the tutee for free up to 7 miles radius, an additional fee may be required for longer travel distance.

Personal Description:
Hi. My name is Llinos. I am 37 and live in Eastleigh near Southampton. I currently work part time as a History teacher in a senior state school. I have previously been Head of History in a very successful senior girls' grammar school and in private prep school. I have also had several History teaching roles up to A2 level as well as teaching Maths and English up to year 8.

Over the last 14 years I have taught a wide range of History topics at all levels and to a wide variety of abilities from EAL students to preparation for Oxbridge interviews. I have also prepared pupils up to 13 for the Common Entrance English examination and have provided on-going support in English focussing on literacy, grammar etc.

I work for OCR as an A Level and GCSE examiner so am fully aware of the requirements needed to attain the best grade possible here. I have also attended several INSETS of the other main exam boards at both GCSE and A Level as well as the most recent meeting for History at Common Entrance level so have a very good knowledge of all public examinations.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History for over 14 years. I taught in a very high achieving boys' grammar school (Reading School) forc2 years before becoming Head of History in a very high achieving girls' school (Kendrick).
I taught all years including GCSE and A level and think that I have covered all main exam boards and many of the topics taught at all levels. Most girls gained A*-A grades at both levels.

I also ran the Berkshire group for the Learning Skills Council to work to improve attainment at A Level for all abilities as well as presenting at LSC conferences on study skills and how to stretch the most able in History.

I then taught in a private girls school where my duties involved helping pupils with English as a second language gain a higher-level pass at A Level as well as teaching all years of mixed ability including GCSE and A Level classes.

Until recently, I worked in a prep school as Head of History and delivered one-to-one lessons with all of my year 8 pupils in preparation for their exams. Last year, my class of 18 very mixed ability pupils all gained A*-B in their Common Entrance History exam.
I have also taught English, Geography, Maths and RS at secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

I have done much work on study skills, particularly mind-mapping, and learning styles. It is a bit of a passion that I have in addition to the History!

I love teaching pupils one-to-one and working out what is going to be the best method (or methods) of learning for them. I also see that the problem can sometimes be happening at a very basic level to a large extent. For example - if a student is just sent off to 'make notes' without ever having been actually guided in HOW to make these notes.

I don't really think I have an 'approach' in general as I truly believe that, in a one-to-one situation, methods can and should be completely tailored to the specific needs of that individual pupil.
Depending on those needs, I can work with students to produce specific and useful sets of notes, work on examiantion technique, provide extensive essay feedback, help them recognise how to remember specific historical details and which ones to bother learning etc.

Personal Description:
Hello!

I have a vast knowledge regarding art practices as I have been working in a studio as an artist and in a few galleries in London and Paris.
However, I have chosen to write rather than practice. After a BA in Art History and Fine Art, I have specialised in Contemporary Art Theory because it is for me primordial to consider art within its context. I have studied sociology, philosophy and geopolitics during my Master.

Moreover, I was until recently a Gallery Manager for an art collector who was hosting private salons and exhibitions. I have left this position to make a greater use of my knowledge. I am currently looking for my next step in either art and cultural programming or documentary production. I am working on various projects in those two fields and recently funded an art collective called Agora Circle.

Lastly, I will be doing a PhD in visual culture in the coming years.

Teaching Experience:

4 years

I usually work with a maximum of five children and ten adults and have some experience in 1-1 tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I would create a structure that empowers you by assessing your level during the first introductory session. This will take the form of a discussion on your interests, methodology and needs.

Regarding younger students, I follow the parents' requests while adapting to the young person as I believe everyone learns differently.

I am happy to support you in your research or practice, introduce you to art, help you deepen your knowledge or assist you with school projects and exams.

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.

Personal Description:
A 1st class scholarship graduate, one of London's top specialist full-time Maths tutors with 700+ hours experience, I am consistently in high demand.

I have a consistent record helping students gain acceptance into London's most prestigious schools through the 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+ or 13+ entrance exams, as well as routinely exceeding expectations by unlocking students potential for A* grades from Primary to GCSE level.

I have earned a reputation not only for outstanding results, but also for inspiring a long-term love of learning in my students. These are reflected by an abundance of testimonials, available to read below, that validate results and a positive change in attitude towards Maths.

As a young dynamic tutor, I get along great with kids and offer a uniquely enthusiastic and imaginative approach that students respond to. My affable nature paired with my breadth of knowledge, allows me to offer the very best tuition to children of all ages and backgrounds.

My belief is that the key to long term academic success is in encouraging a genuine curiosity which expands well beyond the limitations of government syllabi, paving the way for study and understanding at the highest level.

I am kept very busy by referrals, as my tutoring families regularly recommend me to their colleagues and friends. As such, please accept my apologies if I'm a little slow to reply during busy periods. I always write back as soon as I can.

Education:
1st in Engineering from the University of Western Australia as a scholarship student
Also received academic scholarships for exchanges to New York University and University of Sydney.

Hobbies & Interests:
Music (Singing, Guitar, Piano), Sports (Gymnastics, Football, Surfing), Drawing, Cooking, Reading.

Teaching Experience:

"My son connected with him from day one. Our son was at a very low ebb with his Maths, and Daniel stepped in and made real progress. From the first lesson, Daniel helped him to find the gaps in his knowledge and was able to get him to feel that he really understood. They worked together on anything that was challenging, and Daniel made such a difference. I think Daniel is an excellent teacher and we feel that our son has benefited enormously." - S D, mother (GCSE)

"The kids are very happy with your tutoring and so am I. They tell me that your lessons are excellent, and really building their confidence. We have put our faith in you Daniel. For the first time, our daughter has started to achieve top grades. We've also noticed other positive changes; she's a lot more sociable now too." - T K, father (GCSE and KS3)

"You've got a real talent: I can see that the you communicate with my son is really special; you get down to his level, you make friends, and you really connect." L H, father (Year 3)

"Daniel is full of energy and full of life. It is infectious! He can explain some very complex maths by chopping the material down into much more concise ideas. Entire double page spreads are condensed into an equation and a couple of bullet points. My daughter tells me that concepts that seemed complicated now seem easy, and that working with Daniel has saved her hours of struggling with revision. And if she's interested in a particular idea, he is fully able to expand beyond the syllabus too! He is a real genius, and the house brightens up each time with his presence!" - V N, mother (GCSE)

You've obviously formed a really strong link with her. When we were on holiday, she would keep seeing interesting things and saying "oh, Daniel would like to see this"." - C B, mother (11+)

Our daughter has been trying to get back to school after being very unwell, and he has shown great sympathy but also positive encouragement when she has been able to study.

I am hoping to use him more in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him." - C W, mother (GCSE)

Tutoring Approach:

As a maths tutor, I animate and energise every area of study, especially those areas that a student has previously considered dull and disinteresting. I always promote the most thorough understanding and spirit of inquiry, and through the unique interests of the individual, I build long-lasting connections with the most fascinating areas of each subject, forming a firm foundation to ensure that my students are able to excel well beyond my time with them.

My goal with tutoring is to catalyse independence, not dependence as most tutors do, by showing students their own potential. I know from experience that every individual has the potential to achieve great things, and I love to help my students to strengthen their sense of self worth, and travel on a trajectory towards leaving a positive mark on the world.

I'm a young, dynamic, relatable and enthusiastic tutor that loves to teach and gets a great sense of pride from my students success. I am intuitive, patient and affable with every student, regardless of background. I always endeavour to be the best tutor I can be and provide the best results for my students.

I ONLY TEACH 1.5 HOUR SESSIONS OR LONGER:
You may think this is too long for younger students, but 75% of my students are primary school students all enjoying 1.5 hour sessions because of the 15 minute fun time at the end (see below). Hour long lessons seem to end just as you are really getting into a topic and for that reason I only teach 1.5 hour sessions or longer. From my extensive experience it is clear that 1.5+ hour sessions are much more productive, comprehensive and effective at achieving results.

15 MINUTE FUN TIME AT THE END (FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS):
With all my younger students we have 15 minutes at the end for fun time where we do together whatever they want - like drawing or a game. At a young age tutoring is seen as boring and something really not looked forward to, but the 1.5 hour session with the 15 mins at the end completely changes that as they see it as I get to make a drawing with Daniel again today etc. If the session was an hour there would no time for games as you can't teach much in 45 mins. My references say I'm great with kids and prove how these 15 minutes make all the difference by making the lessons more fun, productive and effective at achieving results.

FREE FIRST LESSON/CONSULTATION:
The relationship between the tutor and student strongly affects the effectiveness of tuition so I like to give a free introduction lesson to see if we 'click' and you like the way I teach. It's also a consultation where we discuss where your child is at and where they would like to be. The length of the free first session indicates the length of following regular paid lessons.

There's nothing to lose so help your child today!
