Personal Description:
I'm a very approachable person who interacts well with students of all ages. Most would say that I have a positive outlook on life and always leave a positive impact on those I meet. I'm friendly, down to earth and honest. My philosophy is that studies don't have to be boring, and I always use my career as a teacher/tutor as testament to this.

I enjoy a variety of different things such as arts, culture and cuisine. My hobbies include drawing comic strips, magna, anime and playing electric bass. I am open minded and welcome students of any age, race, background and culture as an honour for me to teach.

Teaching Experience:

Over 7 years experience teaching and tutoring in and out of classrooms. I have taught both in the UK and abroad. I am one of the few teachers in London who is able to teach Mathematics, English Language, English Literature and the three respective Sciences to A* at GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student is different, and I feel it an insult to my students' integrity to tell them how to revise when first meeting them. Through my experience teaching, there is no right way to study, but there are a variety of 'better' ways to make the best grades for each person's potential.

Many students approach me frustrated that they often don't achieve the same calibre as their peers despite the hours they put in. Often it is due to the fact that they aren't their peers and a different approach to revision and homework is required. I believe in working smart before working hard.

We'll tailor a program as a team, and prioritise it factorising your: current ablities, time proximity, and scope of subjects you'd like to cover.

Personal Description:
Cliché: music is my passion. I am an experienced musician who gigs regularly around the North East, South West/East and South Wales. I have played in many bands over the years on saxophone, piano/keyboard and clarinet ranging from traditional, classical orchestras to jazz big bands and funk bands. I am versatile in many genres frequently gigging with my own band, a jazz sextet as well as open nights and headlining bands as the lead player. My main performance work includes (but is not limited to) recording, touring and gigging with London based rock and roll group Hannah Rickard and the Relatives. Other works include composition for film and theatre as well as several music qualifications up to degree level, having graduated from The Univeristy of Sunderland with a BMus Honours degree in Jazz, popular and commercial music in 2013.

Teaching Experience:

I gained the majority of my experience in tuition teaching beginners before I moved to the North East. This was on saxophone, clarinet and piano with all students having great success in both ABRSM grade exams and in pubic performances.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very laid back person but push people to be the best they can be. I am free to travel to most areas of the North East and surrounding areas and do not directly require the student to come to me - this can change week to week as necessary. All student preferences are catered to with the student guiding the musical material for the lessons with structured input.

Personal Description:
Hi, I have always had a love for languages and would love to instil you with the same enthusiasm. After having lived abroad as part of my degree, I then graduated with a BA Hons Degree Class 2.1 in Modern Languages (German, French and Italian), after which I obtained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). After teaching, I also worked for International companies, using my languages extensively by liaising with customers and colleagues overseas and also translating and interpreting. I have always kept my languages fresh by reading foreign literature and keeping in touch with German / French friends. I am mother to 4 children, but even after my children were born, I continued to do some freelance translation. As a mother and as a teacher, I know the importance of patience and how important it is to make learning worthwhile, enjoyable and fun!

Teaching Experience:

After qualifying as a Languages teacher, I have taught German and French in a Comprehensive School to the 11-18 age group. I have tutored teenagers and adults privately in both German and French. I have also provided French classes in one of the International companies I worked for.

Tutoring Approach:

I can offer a learning program which is specifically tailored to suit the individuals needs, whatever the level of knowledge or ability. If required, lessons can be adapted to focus on specific areas such as grammar or conversation practice. My experience in using languages in a business setting also means that I am also well placed to teach lanuages to adults for business purposes. I am a perfectionist and will strive to offer the best tuition possible, by thorough preparation and the use of a variety of learning materials and approaches. If required homework can be set to consolidate knowledge learnt. I want your learning to be productive and engaging. It can open a window into foreign culture and soon you will realise how much fun it is to be able to communicate in another language.

Personal Description:
PIANO/KEYBOARD LESSONS AND MUSIC PRODUCTION TUTION AVAILABLE USING CUBASE!

James Colah is from London, England and is an accomplished keyboard player, producer, arranger, composer and session man with an impressive resumé in the music industry.
He began his music studies at the age of four with a classical training which progressed to a dynamic and creative flare for composition and performance, much of which is undertaken at his own south London studios.
He has composed, performed, recorded and produced music for more than 300 artists of various genres with the philosophy, "As long as you have a germ of a melody which you can hum, I can develop it into something which is sure to please."
His achievements and experience span many diverse areas of the music business including being signed to CBS ( Sony / BMG Records ) with his two identical triplet brothers at an early age, resulting in a European tour. He has also toured with many other high profile acts including supporting, 'Tears For Fears' in America and Canada and the classic soul band, 'The Foundations' throughout Europe. He did two British tours with `Frazier Chorus` (signed to Virgin Records) did a British tour with cult progressive rock band `Pendragon.`
James co-wrote and performed the title music for the BBC`s, `Terry Wogan`s Friday Night Show` and was featured in the prestigious, ` Keyboard Player ` magazine.
He has also worked for production companies in the media and national corporations including other projects for the BBC in the UK.
In a three decade career to date, he has worked as a musical director or session man with a range of high profile international artists which include : Edwin Starr, Ballet Rambert Dance Company, Virgin Records, Sheena Easton, Haysi Fantaysi, Pendragon and EMI.
James continues to maintain his standard of excellence by developing as a musician/composer/producer and has recently steered his talents into the genre of ` Smooth Jazz `.
He's currently working on his first solo smooth jazz album release under the name of 'The James Colah Project' and to date has released eight highly successful singles:
Come with me - The James Colah Project
To be with you - The James Colah Project
Touched by the light - The James Colah Project
Better Days - The James Colah Project
Ocean Tide - The Parlett-Colah Project
Moment in Time - The Parlett-Colah Project
Blissful - The Parlett-Colah Project
Luna Stars - The Bobi-Colah Project
His smooth jazz music has enjoyed rave reviews and is on the playlists of over 100 international radio stations around the world including Jimi King's Sky.fm Show and The JazzNet247.com Project for whom he has been a featured artist and which also resulted in him doing radio interviews jingle production and voice-over id's.
In April 2012, James was invited to perform as a special guest at Spaghettini's, Seal Beach, CA, USA.
James was honoured by winning the 2011 Coffee Talk Jazz Radio - International Songwriter Award

Come with me - The James Colah Project, reached #1 in the cdbaby Lounge Chart - #2 in the cdbaby Smooth Jazz Chart - #4 in the cdbaby Instrumental Chart and #7 in the cdbaby Jazz Chart

Teaching Experience:

36 Years of Piano/keyboard teaching including 2 years part time teaching 'Keyboard Skills' at Clapham Manor Primary School in South West London.

Music production lessons using Cubase. James will teach you how to use Cubase to create a finished production that you can release. James has a fully equipped recording studio with 36 years experience and many hit records have been recorded in his studio.

Tutoring Approach:

As a trained classical piano player with 36 years as a professional musician, James has developed a highly original and fun way of teaching his pupils. His method is not based on reading music or classical music study per se but rather unlocking the creative soul within the pupil, encouraging improvisation and composition. However, learning proper fingering and technique is also very important. Due to his unique teaching method, beginners are very welcome and results will be seen very quickly.

Personal Description:
I have had much help from tutors throughout my academic life so I can understand the value that is offered to a tutee by receiving extra tuition in this way. I am currently studying a Ph.D in Medical Science at Aberdeen University and studied my undergraduate degree here also gaining a 2.1 in my honours degree in Biomedical Science (physiology). The hours spent doing work towards my doctorate is fairly flexible and I have a car meaning my ability to fit around the schedule of others is very good. I consider myself outgoing, patient and very reliable.

Teaching Experience:

I was Biology prefect in my final year at school which involved helping to teach classes up until fourth year. I also carried out some work experience teaching primary school children PE and as part of my Ph.D I will be demonstrating for and tutoring first and second year undergraduates at the university. I have also had vast one on one tutoring experience from 13+ maths and science to standard grade/intermediate physics to advanced higher/A-level Biology and Chemistry.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be engaging, challenging and above all I will strive to create an environment which makes the tutee want to push him/herself. The result will be that the tutee will enjoy doing learning and the progress and benefits will start to become apparent. It was through this style of teaching/ tutoring that I found my strengths in academia and ultimately successes, therefore I wish to pass this confidence in learning on.

Personal Description:
I am a Mandarin speaker. I studied in UK since 2013. I got my Master Degree from the University of Manchester. The subject is Electrical Engineering. I have lots of hobbies, football, basketball, magic tricks, dancing salsa and travelling. In my opinion, life is limited, but the quality depends on how you spend it. I am looking for a cool life expenrience and would love to share it with friends.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Mandarin to a British guy for 4 months.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing about learning a different language is passion. I would rather teach student Chinese from the area they are interested into than routine staff. For example, their hobbies, favourite movies, musics, sports and so forth. As far as I concerned, enthusiasm is essential not only for teacher but also for student. Also, I would use creative approach to teach Mandarin by hanging out in Chinatown, Chinese supermarket so as to give them a practival experience of learning a different language and have a deep understanding both Mandarian and Chinese culture. After student have passion on learning a different language, I will teach them Mandarin according to different sceneries, for example, topics regarding food, weather and so on.

Personal Description:
Approachable, patient and thorough tutor with an outstanding feedback record stretching back to 2009. I am a part-qualified Chartered Accountant, working as a financial statement auditor at a Big Four Accountancy firm in London. My Father was a Mathematics teacher in London for nearly forty years, which is most likely where I get my boundless enthusiasm for these subjects from! I work very hard to make the delivery of subject material as clear, interesting and precise as possible. Rather than just spoon feed a formula, I go back to first principles and explain in simple terms why a particular piece of theory works and where it came from. However, I do not just talk constantly and let the student sit idle. Success in Maths, Accounting and Economics requires problem solving skills, so in order for the sessions to be beneficial I need the student to engage with me and to attempt questions (with my supervision) when they have enough accumulated knowledge to do so. I fully understand how stressful school/university can be and as such the sessions are not intended to be "just another school lesson", or to put vast amounts of pressure on students: the ultimate aim is to develop a strong working rapport whereby the student feels comfortable, secure and can feel a sense of achievement from their work.

*** Feedback testimonials from previous students/parents can be provided as far back as 2009.

*** I teach Sixth Term Examination Papers (STEP I, II and III) and AEA also ***

*** AVAILABLE TO TEACH IN SUMMER HOLIDAYS***

Teaching Experience:

I have eight years worth of private tuition experience teaching Mathematics, Accounting and Economics courses that begin at Key Stage 3 (Years 11-14), through GCSE, AS & A2 level to first and second year university courses in accounting, mathematics and economics. Whilst at university I also volunteered to take part in weekly workshops where students could come and ask questions in a relaxed, informal atmosphere about homework or problems that they simply were unable to make any headway with.

For those of you that are interested in becoming an Actuary or indeed would like some tuition for the exams set by the Institute of Actuaries, I am able to teach the following courses: CT1 - Financial Mathematics, CT3 - Probability and Mathematical Statistics, CT4 - Models, CT7 - Economics.

For those of you that are studying Accounting & Finance, I teach the following courses:

Financial Reporting
Financial Accounting
Taxation
Management/Cost Accounting
Corporate Finance
Business Law

I am well versed with the requirements of the major UK boards for ACA and CA, such as Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS).

I also teach AAT (all Levels), ACCA and CIMA courses.

The above list is not exhaustive so if require assistance with another course please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

Tutoring Approach:

During the first session I present a short questionnaire that I ask the student to fill in (honestly!) in order for me to assess their individual learning styles (right brain vs. left brain, use of visual stimuli etc), so that I can respond best to their needs. Every lesson will begin with an outline of the subject content and the intended aims. The key to success in maths and economics is to do it! With that in mind, the vast majority of lessons will entail methodically working through problems and exam style questions to ensure my students are as well prepared for their modules as possible. However, exam success isn't the only concern; I want to nurture and develop a genuine love for Mathematics and Economics; one that will encourage the students to read widely and explore new avenues of thought.

Now that I am semi-retired I enjoy reading, working in my garden, looking after animals and I keep fit by walking and swimming.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced teacher of German (former Head of Department) with a first class degree and well over 30 years of experience working in both the maintained and independent sectors. I have taught German to all levels and have achieved excellent results for my students at GCSE and A level throughout my career. My particular interest lies in working with the 11-16 age range and I specialise in preparing students for GCSE and IGCSE exams.

In my last post I was responsible for the organisation and conduct of public examinations, as well as for the introduction of IGCSE into our school. I am also currently working with the new syllabus for first examination in 2018.

For many years I successfully organised exchanges and residential stays in Germany, which I also accompanied and thoroughly enjoyed!

Tutoring Approach:

My pupils tell me that they appreciate my encouraging and thorough tutoring and that they enjoy our sessions. I provide varied lessons, focusing on speaking, reading, writing and listening skills and am flexible in my approach, using my experience to adapt to the pupils' individual needs. I am able to provide clear explanations of German grammar and have a wealth of materials to consolidate all aspects of my teaching.

I gain a great deal of satisfaction from seeing my pupils progress and succeed in their studies and love working on a one to one basis with young people. Please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your needs and I look forward to hearing from you.
