Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

Personal Description:
I have Special Needs University qualifications and counseling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor for the past 14 years preparing students for +11, +13 exams in English and Maths. I also teach Maths up to A level.

I am a certified therapist in PhonoGraphix method for addressing spelling and reading difficulties both for children and adults.

I could also help with learning computers (ECDL syllabus including usage of Word, PowerPoint, Internet, Excel).

Tutoring Approach:

I have Special Needs University qualifications and counselling skills, which enables me to tutor students that may encounter emotional difficulties in their learning. I believe that motivation is the key factor to tutoring, as it needs to be addressed continuously in the process of learning.

As a tutor, I encourage my students to reflect upon their mistakes and to understand how to tackle the next step of their learning, without having a negative response.

I usually have the first lesson together with the parents so that the student feels comfortable and parents can observe my teaching; I present a folder containing the CRB form, qualifications, QTS certificate and letters of recommendations from parents. I teach from home in a calm and stimulating environment.
The first lesson is only paid if the parent decides to continue tuition.

Personal Description:
"Thank you very much for the great work you did with my daughter Sophie. She progressed from a 'C' grade to an 'A' grade in the space of 6 months and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends." - Billy, Bangor

As an experienced private tutor with a 100% pass rate, I offer highly effective, tailored lessons to a wide-range of students with various ability, learning types, and academic stages.

I have a passion for learning and an appreciation for all the forms this can take. My approach is tailored to each student's own learning style and my methods aim to both support and engage them to continue learning in their own way.

Teaching Experience:

"The learning exercises were always set around my interest areas, making tuition both fun and effective. Following my sessions with Andrew, I have developed a more concise way of communicating. My writing now has more flow, which helps me say what I need to say." - Neil , Newtownabbey

Professional certified Life Coach and successful university graduate (1st class hons) with additional masters research degree. Taught at Secondary school and now several successful years tutoring especially English and Maths for most ages and stages, and passionate about encouraging the potential of each of my students.

Also a regular public speaker leading seminars on themes ranging from stress-management and communication skills, to enhancing personal confidence and self fulfilment.

Tutoring Approach:

"Andrew was very professional in his approach to tutoring. My daughter gained confidence in her ability to understand her subject and to recall information using association techniques which proved very useful in her examinations."
Grainne, Randalstown

Combining motivational coaching techniques, I offer a fully engaging and personalised education. While encouraging the student to adopt high yet achievable targets for their own eduction, I am also sensitive to the level of each student and what he or she is ready to adopt.

This coaching-based approach I take has proven highly successful for my students, as my many positive references show. I approach each student and the sessions with an open-minded attitude of what I need to learn in order to be of support. I have many areas of interest outside of education, and pride myself in my ability to engage my students at their level and within their current areas of interest. My reward is seeing students succeed in their studies as well as developing their own personal skills and confidence.

AREAS COVERED / WHAT TO EXPECT

I help primary, secondary, university/college and mature students with reading, spelling, comprehension and every area of Maths up to GCSE. Alongside the specific subjects I tutor in, I can incorporate motivational coaching on exam and essay skills. This will ensure maximum value for your investment of time, effort and money

For English or Maths the first lesson will consist of a complimentary educational assessment (usually 30 minutes) to help identify key areas for improvement . All results shared with the parent/guardian. Based on this initial assessment, a 100% individual programme of learning is tailored for your child.

Upon request I am also able to provide emotional literacy around life skills such as: motivation, communication, self belief and concentration.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for tutoring Philip this year; he adapted well with you as his new tutor and enjoyed your approach to teaching.
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a tutor. I found him to be polite, courteous, reliable, and accommodating."
- Doreen, Ballyclare

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher and have high expectations. I try to help and encourage my students to reach their potential and enjoy their time with me.

I am aware of any syllabus change and have attended courses run by the OCR, Edexcel and AQA examination boards to update myself.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in a secondary school for over six years until 2006 and since this time have been tutoring full time. I have experience across the 10-18 age and ability range. I am experienced in working with lower ability children, including those who have a Statement for Educational Needs.

However, I now mainly concentrate teaching GCSE and A-level:
I teach both English Language and Literature up to GCSE. I also teach History at both GCSE and A-level as well as Politics at A-level. I am experienced and skilled in exam preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient and caring teacher and before I start with the lessons I discuss with the parent and the pupil their subject weaknesses. I also discuss what they are learning in school not only to give me the ability to help them understand the subject, but also to enable me to know what they want to achieve through my teaching. I give homework and then discuss with the pupil the different ways that they can make improvements so that they gain confidence with their studies. In certain cases I do not give homework as the schoolwork might be heavy.

After each lesson I always make time to talk to the parent to discuss what I have taught their child and tell them what homework has been set. This way the parent, pupil and myself can give immediate feedback.

I have excellent people skills and try to build a good relationship with my students so that they enjoy their lessons.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English teacher with a PhD in English Literature from Durham University and an MA degree in English Philology from the Jagiellonian University of Krakow. English has always fascinated me and imparting my knowledge to others has been a pleasure and a reward. I am interested in Modernist as well as contemporary literature as much as in British culture and geography. I wish to share my passion with my students in order to help them realize that learning a language is not only useful but great fun if taught and approached in the right way.

Teaching Experience:

My English teaching experience covers working for Studio Cambridge, EAC and Anglophiles Academic at their summer camps for students of various nationalities in such locations as Cambridge, York, Bath, Bishop's Stortford and Skegness. I have also taught at three language schools in Poland and completed teaching practice in three Polish secondary schools. What is more, I have been teaching English on a one-to-one basis for the past ten years to students of all ages and various nationalities (including French, Italian, German, Korean and Polish). I have prepared four students for their A-level examinations, which they passed with flying colours. I have also taught English to children and adults of all levels and with various difficulties (e.g. dyslexia). I am currently a part-time tutor in English Literature at Durham University. I have also taught Polish successfully on a one-to-one basis for four years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning is all about attitude and motivation. Language can be taught in a variety of ways, but the key is to choose the method that is most fruitful in an individual case. Forcing a language in is ineffective and unprofessional. The focus should be on practice rather than theory, though both are necessary for the student to develop their language skills. Theory must always be supported with lots and lots of practice - be it grammar and vocabulary exercises, games, films, music, television or newspaper articles - anything that will keep the student in touch with the language system. In short, the key to success is the student's positive attitude and interest in the subject (both of which the teacher can help develop) and the continuity of exposure to a given language, which the teacher should provide, plus the practice of grammar and vocabulary.

Personal Description:
I am married with four sons and live in Taunton, Somerset. I am interested in gardening, growing vegetables and flowers. I belong to the National Trust and to a town exchange with Lisieux, Normandy. I walk and cycle regularly. I am interested in cooking and reading. We have students who stay with us during the year; they are unable to go home for the weekend or half term because they live in places such as China, Japan or Russia.

Teaching Experience:

I have had many years of experience in primary schools teaching subjects as required, at both KS1 and KS2 and have a particular interest in English, Reading, Mathematics and History. I taught children on Home Tuition from 8 to 16 years; these children were not able to attend school for various reasons, such as health or behaviour. I taught subjects as required, which included Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography and PSHE. I also taught for four years in a special school teaching EBD students from 8 to 16 years; this included teaching English, History, PSHE, Maths and Science to GCSE; in this post I took responsibility in the headteacher's absence. I have taught students English as a Foreign Language in my home since 1996; these have included children and adults and have had different levels of competence in English including beginner. I have also taught pupils studying for entrance exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have had many years of experience and teach sympathetically; I am very patient. I have a variety of materials for the different subjects and make them as interesting as possible. I adapt my teaching to the individual's needs, whether advanced or those who find it more difficult to learn. I have had much experience of teaching Reading, Handwriting and Spelling and also for entrance exams. Frequently I use a multi-sensory approach and educational games. If it is suitable, I give homework. I can teach two students together if they are learning the same subject. I am very flexible. I teach in a quiet room and the parents are welcome to stay (normally in a room close by).

Personal Description:
My name is Tim and I'm based in the Caerphilly area. I am happy to work anywhere in Caerphilly, Cardiff, Newport or the Valleys. I am a primary school teacher and have 24 years experience working with children within the age range 6-11.
I have worked in London and in South Wales and have taught in a range of primary schools, teaching children from many different types of background. I have a current CRB check and can provide excellent references.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a primary school teacher since 1986 and have worked across the age range from 6 to 11. I have a good deal of experience teaching children in Year 6 and preparing them for the step up to secondary school. I am able to give tuition in any primary subject but have a specialism in maths as I have been maths co-ordinator in more than one school and have an in depth knowledge of how children learn in this subject and how they can be helped to enjoy their work here and achieve good results. I also have experience of tutoring children in individual sessions and have always been able to help them to improve their standards and become more confident across the curriculum.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly tutor who has always been able to establish a good rapport with children of primary age. I am extremely patient and calm in my approach as a teacher and believe in using humour to help children relax and enjoy learning. I take into account the preferred learning style of the child and tailor all lessons to their needs. I will try to include an element of challenge in all sessions to help children build up their confidence through success on progressively more difficult tasks. I have a huge range of resources I can use to help make sessions interesting and am prepared to be flexible in terms of rates, location of sessions and times.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified primary school teacher in my 30s. I am friendly, patient and approachable and enjoy helping children with their learning. I am able to provide help with KS1 and KS2 English/Literacy (reading, writing, spelling or a combination of these), and KS1 and KS2 maths. I particularly work with children who find the subject difficult and would like a little extra help and children who have specific special educational needs. My specialist subject is history and am happy to provide support for this subject at primary level also. I do not tutor for school entrance exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in education for 10 years, as a class teacher in Years 3 and 5, a museum teacher and currently as a Year 5 and 6 teacher in a village school in the Forest of Dean. I have been home tutoring for four years. The children I have tutored have gained in confidence, improved their skills and moved up groups in school within months.

"We can't thank you enough for all the help and guidance you have given H during the time you have taught him." (Parent)

"Thank you for helping me get better at maths and litercay. Since you have been helping me I have moved up a set to a better class. I am pleased about this, as now I feel more confident." (Year 5 pupil)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe learning should be fun, active and relevant to the child's interests and needs. I tailor lessons to the child's abilities, learning styles and interests, and include suitable levels of challenge to help them progress. I believe praise and encouragement is conducive to success and in raising a child's confidence if they are struggling. I am used to working with a wide range of children who have different abilities and interests, and can quickly assess the level they are working at and tailor their learning to suit their needs and interests.

Personal Description:
I am a young, enthusiastic and committed teacher who has excellent relationships with the many young people I have taught in my career. I specialise in History and Spanish but am also offering English, French and German too to GCSE level. I have achieved excellent GCSE results with my own individual students and then collectively as the Head of History at my school. I believe in every single student being able to achieve in subjects such as History and languages and am confident in teaching to the A-A* level as well as to the C grade level for tutees who are requiring tuition in preparation for an examination. I am easy going but yet determined to get the best out of every student/person that I teach/tutor. I am quite out going and confident, I love horse riding and dancing when I am not teaching and I try to put in 100% in all that I do and private tutoring will be no different :)

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching 5 years and am currently entering my 8th year as a teacher. I am Head of the History department at a large secondary school in South Yorkshire where I have always worked since qualifying, and currently teach 5 examination classes to GCSE level. I have overseen and been personally responsible for the department's increase in GCSE results from 30% when I became Head of Department to 70% last year and a prediction of 84% this year. I have excellent examination results with the classes I personally teach and have moved students from grade E to grade C and B and students from a D to an A grade. I have also been a mentor working closely with a student on an individual basis in order for him to achieve his potential and I have also worked closely with an Assistant Headteacher in implementing G&T provision across the school. I also teach GCSE Spanish after school to students and to parents and again achieved 75% A*-C last year and am looking at achieving 100% this year. Teaching is my number 1 focus and when I am at work I am 100% focussed on the students in front of me and ensuring they achieve excellent results.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been a private tutor for a year now and have taught 6 students A-level History and continue to teach one of them into A2, I have also taught 1 student GCSE History and will continue to teach her also for A-level History and I have also taught and continue to teach one student GCSE Spanish and 1 student GCSE English. I aim to make tutoring enjoyable, helpful and rewarding whether that be in terms of examination success or simply learning new things. For tutees who are requiring tuition in preparation for an examination, I will teach the knowledge and content required as well as covering the exam technique and skills needed. I will differentiate my teaching also to allow for all tutees to succeed whether they are looking to achieve an A* or a C grade and aim to tailor my way of teaching/tutoring to what works best for the tutee.

Personal Description:
I am a patient, approachable tutor and will help you from wherever your starting position. I have helped many students achieve the grades they want and I know how it feels to be under pressure to do well in exams. I aim to give students confidence in themselves and in their subject and hopefully, enjoy the process!

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced secondary school teacher, having taught in England and Northern Ireland. I have taught lots of versions of combined sciences (like OCR and AQA) as well as separate sciences at GCSE. I have taught AS and A2 level Biology for many years too. I have taught pupils of all abilities and pupils with specific learning needs. I have also tutored GCSE, A level and undergraduates on a one-to-one basis.

Before becoming a teacher, I was a scientist working in Oxford (where I did my PhD) and Nottingham Universities where I also taught undergraduates.

I am not available to tutor adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I will discuss your needs first of all and find out how I can help. We will assess where your strengths and weaknesses are and formulate a plan for your studies.

You will be tutored in our education centre where I have revision quizzes on computer, resources and notes to work through to build your own notes. I also like to use lots of past papers to help you improve your exam technique as well as work on your subject knowledge.

I will set homework and you need to set aside time during the week to back up the work we do in tutoring sessions. I can help you improve but the only person who can sit your exams is you so you need to be determined that you will do your best.

Personal Description:
I am a lively and enthusiastic graduate, with a first class honours in Engineering from Kingston University. I have always had a passion for teaching, as the younger generation is our future and I believe that it is very important that they are well educated. I know that private tutoring is very useful, as I myself have had it, it helps build confidence in students that don't feel that they are up to speed in school.

I am highly passionate about everything I do, this includes activities such as playing guitar and studying motors. I know that I am an able tutor when it comes to students of any ability.

Teaching Experience:

I started my career tutoring only young children on a casual basis, I now have tutored children professionally. My eldest student was 18, and my youngest was 6. I enjoy teaching children of all ages. I tutor in Maths, English and Spanish, and I am able to tutor in Film Studies too. I have studied all of these subjects myself and have gained respectable grades in them. I believe that having worked in a customer based environment for many years means that I am an easy to talk to person and I found that this is helpful in tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a graduate, and I the way in which I teach is by using practice questions and repetitively going over the necessary work, as I believe that this helps the student grasp the work. I also aim to make sure that the student can understand the work as well as answer questions, as understanding is the most important part.

The lessons would always be well structured. I would begin by going over the facts and showing examples of how things can be solved. I would then go on to give practice questions, with which I would help, and finally I would leave the student with a practice question as homework.

Personal Description:
As an educator and enthusiastic learner I always aim to engender a love for learning in those that I work with, regardless of level or subject. I have a strong background in education as a participant, lecturer and mentor working primarily with older students although through my experiences as a hockey and swimming coach I have worked with individuals from the age of five upwards. I am a published writer and qualified journalist with excellent language skills which are directly transferable to all elements of education.

As a motivated individual, I aim to get all students to want to achieve and perform academically to the best of their ability.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my Professional Graduate Certificate in Education with the University of Bedfordshire in 2012 whilst working as a full time lecturer in further and higher education where I volunteered for one year and taught for two. During this time I was personal tutor to 60 Level 3 students, and responsible for their welfare and setting their educational goals. I also taught various subjects, including functional skills maths and English, covered lessons with students from different academic levels and provided support lessons to students as they completed coursework. Since then, I have worked in a top state secondary school teaching PE and working with children aged 11-18.

I have also worked with children from the age of three upwards through my experiences as a swimming teacher and coach, and have worked with groups of performance athletes on honing specific skills. The range of children I have worked with through all educational experiences require communication to be adapted and different teaching methods to be used, all of which I am competent at and able to use in all manner of settings.

I have been tutoring since October 2011, working with students of all abilities and from Key Stage 1 through to A Levels. Students I have worked with have gained excellent results in exams, with all A Level students getting into university. Students at primary level have moved up the national curriculum levels faster than their peers and have a lot more confidence in their work and ability after I have worked with them. I also have experience working closely with children who are dyslexic and I have a number of strategies that I employ to help them achieve and gain confidence in their school work.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to provide an individual approach to learning depending on the learning style and preferences of the individual. I firmly believe that students should be involved in the learning process to improve retention and understanding of information and help them apply everything learnt practically. My aim is not for students to retain information simply for the purpose of passing an exam or completing coursework - it is to help students gain an understanding of a subject so it benefits them through life. Through my experiences as a teacher I have found the words of Confucius to be true of the learning process: "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand."

Personal Description:
From my experience in the classroom I realise that many students benefit from much more individual help than school can provide. I enjoy being able to help students on a one-to-one basis as it is very rewarding being able to improve their achievement and confidence.I am very grateful to my students and their parents for the relationships we have struck up, many of which have continued through the years.

Teaching Experience:

I am an English teacher with over 20 years experience teaching to GCSE, A-level and Oxbridge entrance.I have taught in both the independent and state sectors, in a large comprehensive and a small independent school. I have also tutored in Oxford and London for students from 10 to 19.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one or small groups of 2 or 3.

I aim to develop confidence by supporting the students and understanding their needs as a priority. I then encourage them to explore and develop ideas, giving them support while they grow in this. The key is building an excellent relationship in which high expectations enable them to make progress while always supported.

Personal Description:
Cambridge-educated tutor | Tuition at KS3, GCSE and A-Level | Support for students applying to Oxford and Cambridge

I have a degree in English from Queens` College, Cambridge, and A-Levels in German, Spanish, English Literature and Drama.

I tutor in:
English literature and language at A-Level, GCSE and KS3
English as a foreign language (to any level)
German and Spanish for beginners/KS3.

I also offer support to students applying to Oxford and Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in teaching people of all ages on a range of different subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

Understanding the needs of the student is my first priority. Everyone is different and has to come at their thoughts and studies in a way which suits them.

I never dictate answers but look to give students the means and confidence to get there themselves. It`s my job to explain concepts, help tackle and understand course texts, create tailored handouts, give guidance in structuring essays and generally offer support wherever I can.

I make constant reference to course specifications to ensure that material covered is relevant and that course requirements are met: students should write essays and enter the exam hall knowing they have the tools to do well.

I also think it's important for students to discuss and develop their ideas in a way which genuinely inspires and engages them in the subject - the basis of the Oxbridge tutorial system.

Given the right focus, guidance and encouragement, I genuinely believe it is possible for any student to do excellently.

Subjects

I went through the GCSE and A-Level courses and know what it takes to do excellently in those exams. The subjects I list are in the traditional qualifications, but I am happy to tailor tuition to other courses, too.

Personal Description:
10% discount on bank transfer payments!

I am an enthusiastic primary teacher who creates an effective learning atmosphere, by never judging the children I teach. I am good at extending children's learning, whether they need extra support or they are exceeding expectations.

I am passionate about education and want to offer children the best chance in their education. To become an excellent tutor and teacher I am working towards completing my Masters in Education. This means I can offer the most up to date educational theory.

I lived in Bradford for 4 years whilst completing my degree in teaching before moving to Brighouse when I started my new job in September 2013.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a supply teacher in schools throughout Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield,teaching children from Nursery to Year 6. I have taught several GCSE students, all of which have increased their grades, some from a G to B within only a few months.

I am currently teaching full time at a school in Huddersfield whilst offering one to one tutoring for 10 different children. At present, I have only a few spaces left, so contact me now!

Tutoring Approach:

I work hard to give an excellent tuition service. I provide all the materials required and provide you with up to date assessment details. I am starting to teach with the support of the new National Curriculum Document which will start in September 2014. This will give your child the most efficient teaching and learning.

I adapt work to the needs of my learners and provide different ways of learning. I understand children learn in different ways. After working with your child for only a few sessions, I can plan sessions which are suited to your child or children.

Personal Description:
My name is Dan I am 27 year old male teacher. I am originally from Liverpool but moved to London to study for my Primary PGCE a little under 4 years ago. I am a sports fanatic and am always active and spend as much time outdoors as possible. When not taking part in sport I am working in a KS1 class in East Dulwich and thoroughly enjoy my time in school!

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in schools for the previous 6 years in various capacities ranging from being a teaching assistant, studying for my PGCE and also being a full time teacher.
My time working as a TA both in Birmingham and Liverpool enabled me to gain invaluable experience working with small groups of children teaching 'booster' groups to get children back to their nationally expected levels. This was a challenging yet rewarding experience as I was introduced to different approaches and methods so I can judge which approach will benefit each child I work with this included teaching a group of boys in years 1 and 2 to read.
During my teaching practice I worked in 2 schools in Peckham and also an autistic school in Tooting. Since qualifying I have worked as a year 5 teacher in Slough which was an extremely challenging experience with some difficult young boys who all responded to my teaching approach and I was able to build up a professional rapport, something that these boys had previously not had with other teachers. Since leaving there I have been working in a year 4 and 5 classes in Wanstead. This has been an enjoyable experience with a class with a wide range of abilities so has really stretched my teaching ability. Whilst here I have been working as a class teacher but also taking small groups of children and identified their weaknesses and work on them together which has had extremely successful results.
In my present school I am subject to regular teaching observations across Maths, English and Reading, where I am regularly graded good or outstanding, this coupled with a recent 'good' grading from Ofsted show that I have a broad subject knowledge range and provide engaging and motivational lessons. Having recently moved schools I have been promoted to Maths Curriculum leader and have an extensive knowledge of Maths across KS1 and KS2.

Tutoring Approach:

Since moving to London I have dealt with some extremely challenging behaviour from children based in Peckham, Slough and Wanstead. Through my time based in these schools I have built an extremely successful rapport with all children in class especially with young boys. I feel I am able to do this as I have a laid back demeanour that children don't feel threatened by but I demand instant respect and lay out my expectations of behaviour and attitude from the child from the start.
My approach to tutoring is mainly child led as I believe that a child learns best when they make discoveries of their own. I try to keep the actual teaching and talk to a minimum but will direct a child's thinking with some prompting and questioning if they are close to a break through. My main aim when teaching/tutoring is to promote confidence in a child's ability. All children have the capacity to learn some have mental blocks caused by lack of self esteem I aim to tackle this whilst showing the child easy steps and tips to complete tasks.
I feel I am an intuitive tutor who excels at finding unique and approachable ways to understand the student's needs and tailor the sessions to them specifically. As a classroom teacher at a diverse array of schools I gained substantial experience in educating children from a variety of backgrounds, and I believe I incorporate this experience when teaching individuals as well.
