Personal Description:
I believe that learning a language can enrich your life and should be done in a fun and interesting way. My parents encouraged me to travel from a young age and I suppose I developed an 'ear' for languages through being made to ask for ice-creams and make friends with local kids! I also learned French and German at school and then went on an intensive course in Florence to learn Italian - then went on to study both German and Italian at the University of Reading. I live in Chelmsford with my husband.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching German and Italian up to A level standard in comprehensive schools and as a private tutor. I have also used German working in the private sector as a media analyst.

Tutoring Approach:

My current job is 'specialist teacher for children with physical and neurological impairments', a job I love but I am missing my languages! Being able to tutor someone else would therefore also be an enjoyable experience for me. I hope that all my experiences in life and as a teacher have made me a patient and empathetic person who can work with a range of different people from any background and of any age. I can be guided by what a client is hoping to achieve but would hope to employ a range of styles, keeping a balance between the formal and informal. My favourite analogy is that learning a language is like building a house - the desire to learn is the foundation, the words are the bricks and the grammar is the cement that holds them all together in the right place! I have a current CRB certificate.

Personal Description:
Hello.
My name is Leonor. I am from Spain and 38 years old.

I am a teacher of Spanish and teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. I love my profession and find teaching more a pleasure than a job. I have discovered that teaching is a two way experience where the teacher often learns as much from the students as the students learn from the teacher. For me, teaching languages is a very rewarding experience. I work with a couple of colleagues online, so we can offer more languages tuition, such as English (British English), French, German, Portuguese and Entrance Exams. All of us are native, qualified and experienced.

I am especially passionate about my native language, Spanish. I love not only the expressive beauty of the written Spanish, but the enchanting, musical sound and rhythm of spoken Spanish. The magic of the language of Cervantes is one of the reasons I have dedicated my life to the study of languages, especially Spanish.

Besides a passion for languages and linguistics, I also enjoy traveling and tracing the roots of human history and civilization. I am especially fascinated by ancient history.

Teaching Experience:

1. Bachelor Degree in Teaching English. University of Cadiz, in Spain.

2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of Leon (Castilla Leon), in Spain.

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

I am a member of ELE Congress (Spanish as a Foreign Language).

Several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian) from children to adults, and all cases with really good results (available to show in case of need).

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on the Direct Method, I use a technique of teaching a foreign languages without reference to the students native language. This method of total immersion has been proven to be the most effective means of rapidly developing real language skills. It is recognized as one of the best methods for language instruction and currently used around the world. With this method, students quickly develop the ability to think in their new language. This approach is both easy and satisfying. Student progress is quite rapid. Students progress at their own pace in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. With my method, students will begin speaking their new foreign language from the very first lesson (guaranteed), even if they have never spoken a word of their new language before.

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammars tiresome and less than effective? COME AND TRY MY METHOD, THE DIRECT METHOD!

Personal Description:
I am trilingual having been educated until the age of 15 in British boarding schools and then in Switzerland for 'A' Levels. I attended Nantes University for three years and obtained a degree in Linguistics. I enjoy teaching one a one-to-one basis. I have a wide variety of interests which means I am able to always find common ground with the student and therefore always establish a good relationship

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored on a one-to-one basis for many years for West Sussex Tutors based in Crawley with excellent results. I have also taught for many years in France where I lived for twelve years in both Lycees and Ecoles Superieures. Whilst living in Chile I also taught at La Serena University.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient and always try and use encouragement and praise to develop confidence. I am quite strict with expecting homework to be done as often this is the very reason why I am tutoring in the first place. Being well-spoken, I tend to command respect and admiration when the pupil realises that I am tri-lingual. I love tutoring and would like to extend the number of pupils I teach. It is also a way for me to practise and to continue improving myself in those areas I love and have a passion for

Personal Description:
Confidence is often the stumbling block for learners, and I always encourage all of my students to feel an early sense of achievement. Enabling students to see real progress quickly is essential to the building of self-esteem. I am very approachable and my style of teaching is relaxed and friendly. I love my job and hope that my own enthusiasm inspires my students to excel. Recently I have added French to my repertoire, for absolute beginners. I am sure French will be as popular and exciting as English has been.

Teaching Experience:

I have been an English teacher since 1976. I have taught all age groups, from nursery to A Level. Teaching is a wonderful and totally satisfying vocation. I moved across to tutoring as I felt I could offer all of my experience in this role. Being a teacher is definitely something I was born to do, and I love it.

Tutoring Approach:

Students can learn by either visiting my home or at a distance using Skype. Every student is assessed as an individual and the content of their course tailored to their needs. I test my students periodically to ensure progress is going smoothly; also testing is a good way for students to observe their own progress. We use a variety of materials: books for writing and reading, the computer for visual skills and games, listening and speaking is a major part of the programme for EFL students. Children learn in different ways, and I like to offer my students visual, auditory and kinetic tools, we can see which is most comfortable for the individual. The speed of learning is not as important as the confidence of the individual and their inspiration and motivation to progress.

Personal Description:
I am 54 years old, I am married with four children. I have a degree ( Joint Honours, 2.1 in Agriculture with Agricultural Economics) and a Cert Ed. I am a member of the Institute for Learning. I have taught a wide range of subjects over 28 years and am able to coach you to success whether you are looking for science, geography, Excel spreadsheets, English as a Foreign Language or even French and German ( I worked in both countries when I was younger)

Teaching Experience:

I can help you prepare for exams in Geography, Biology, Ecology, French and German. I have taught English as a Foreign Language over many years. I can also help you with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, particularly for Business. I am a patient, enthusiastic and committed teacher with 28 years experience particularly with post 16 and adult education. I have taught agriculture and related topics over that time, and very much enjoyed diversifying my teaching portfolio as new courses arose at the college. I have taught a range of biology and geography related topics, including plant and soil science, crop science, crop production, livestock production, environmental issues, ecology, woodland management. In business I have helped many people develop diverse enterprises, preparing carefully costed cash flow projections. I very much enjoy seeing people develop confidence with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, which are an invaluable tool.

Tutoring Approach:

I am convinced that one-to-one tuition is by far the most efficient way in which a person can progress and gain confidence. Often someone can grasp a topic in 5 minutes of one-to-one that would have taken 2 hours to cover with a larger group. Once you are confident with a topic, we move on rapidly to the next one. A current A level tutee of mine told his father "I learnt more in that 2 hour session than I have all term at school" and his headteacher wrote to congratulate him on his improved grades. (The reason for this is not that his teacher is bad, far from it, but a tutor can give you personal one-to-one attention, concentrating on the bits you need) I always ensure that the learners are confident with each step before progressing further.

Personal Description:
I am a 22 year old who is currently working at RWS translations group in Chalfont St Peter. I have recently graduated from Durham University with a 2.1 BA in Modern Languages (French and Italian). I also studied Spanish up to 2nd year. I enjoy speaking different languages and try to pass on my enthusiasm for languages to others.

Teaching Experience:

My third year at University was spent abroad. I chose to teach in France for 7 months in two primary schools which I very much enjoyed. I loved to chat to the children and try to get them to see the importance of learning English. I also au-paired for three months in Italy during my Year Abroad, which involved private lessons with a 7 year old. I have also previously tutored French, which included exam preparation, focusing on problematic areas and improving confidence. I understand how difficult languages can be, I believe I can sympathise with the student. The lesson must be fun and the student needs to understand the importance of learning a language, in order to be enthusiastic about it.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe languages are crucial in education. Throughout university I took part in Routes into Languages, a consortium of universities working together with schools and colleges, to enthuse and encourage people to study languages. This role involved planning taster classes for small groups, introducing a new language into their education and broadening their knowledge of the world and different cultures. I particularly enjoyed this role as I was enable to communicate the importance of languages and perhaps inspire some of the children to carry languages on past year 9.

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Jennifer and I moved to the UK 3 years ago. I am originally Spanish and speak the language fluently, but because I was born and did my education in Geneva (French speaking part of Switzerland), French is also a mother tongue to me.

I would like to use my knowledge and spare time to help others discover and learn new languages. I am dynamic and have a bubbly personality and when it comes to work I am attentive, meticulous and organized. I always commit to do my best in every situation because my education taught me that achievement was synonymous with intense and hard work.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring in the UK since July 2013. I currently help with both Spanish and French no matter the needs and goals.

When I was in Switzerland, I had a year of teaching/tutoring experience in the following areas:

-After graduating from High School, I registered with the Department of Public Education in Geneva in order to be a substitute teacher in primary schools. I have then been called many times to cover when teachers were absent, for periods of two days a week most of the time.

-At the same time, I joined the Association of the Ajeta Tutorings to help pupils at home with their school difficulties and homework. During my time there, I had three pupils on a regular basis that I helped with French, Maths and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and bubbly person and will always to my best to make the tutee feel at ease. I would first see the level the tutee is at before proceeding to an adequate approach and discuss the goals to achieve.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in French and German and have taught both to A level over the last 30 years. I am a committed linguist, having a further qualification in translation. I am well travelled and have a deep understanding of the cultures of the Francophonie and the German speaking lands. My personal interests are concentrated in cinema, music, literature and history; all of which I have a good knowledge of with reference to the target language countries.
I am the mother of 3 children, all of whom studied a language at A level and one of which has a languages' degree.

Teaching Experience:

I have been Head of Modern Languages for 8 years and have just reduced my workload to 2 days per week. I am a very experienced A level teacher of both French and German and have worked as a private tutor before at this level. I am responsible for Oxbridge applications and references in my school.
I shall also be working as an examiner for one of the examination boards; an occupation that I fulfilled for many years, when my own children were young.

Tutoring Approach:

I will need to diagnose the needs of the student in the first session and work on perceived weaknesses thereafter. My aim is to breed confidence and precision.

Personal Description:
I am a Polish native speaker who did a degree in Spanish at the University of Sheffield. I am passionate about foreign languages and I have some experience in teaching/ tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I run " Learn to speak Polish" in the Hayfield School FE Centre in Doncaster, last year I run afterschool Spanish revisions with GCSE pupils in the Ridgewood School in Doncatser and delivered private Spanish and English tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to tailor my lessons to learners' individual needs nad make it fun as it helps memorising new vocabulary. In my opinion learners should be immersed in new language/ culture as much as possible, therefore I always use videos, podcasts, DVDs and try to get my students to speak.

Personal Description:
Postgraduate Student.

I am a twenty-one year old postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and understand the tricky bits of their material which is escaping their understanding. I am a Canadian studying abroad here in Glasgow and therefore do not have GCSEs or A levels, but I have the equivalent levels from Canadian institutions with top marks. I tutor best in history, my chosen subject, English or French as a second language, and maths, which I not only did well in during secondary school, but all of which I have also studied at the University level. I get along very well with students of all ages and try to make the tutoring experience a fun an interesting one for any student.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring 1 on 1
ESL teaching (Group sizes from 5-12)
Age range of experience: 7-18 year olds

I have several years of teaching experience in different settings and with different age groups. I've taught English as a Second Language in a camp setting which ran lessons similar to classroom lessons every morning. I had to design my own approaches to various topics which gave me a lot of practice in making studying and learning interesting and easier for children who were less interested or struggling. I also tutored on a private basis for primary school-aged children through the medium of French and English in reading and writing skills as well as the general subjects at that age. I have tutored at the secondary school level in Maths, English, French, Sciences, and History. I have also been a teaching assistant at the University level for both Irish and Scottish Gaelic second language courses as well as a general Celtic World knowledge course.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun.
Aim is to help student learn how they understand instruction so that they are more confident in their own abilities and can perform better in the future.
Use past work to improve on future work.

Learning should be fun and I strive to make the tutoring experience less about school work and more about understanding the ways in which what is being taught is of interest to the student. Finding ways to improve the student's understanding and learning experience sometimes means approaching the material in a different way than is being taught in class. Teachers understand that not all student learn the same way but cannot always deliver their teaching in all these ways. By helping the student understand the material first and then explaining the method the teacher used to explain it first allows the student to reach their full potential, understand the material, and go back to class with a better chance following the teacher's instruction.

All of this is done in a light-mannered way that does not make the child feel as though tutoring is a punishment for not understanding in class, but rather, a (sometimes lengthy) temporary situation until the student becomes more confident about his or her own skills!

Using the student's own work is an important tool for helping them recognize their own areas of difficulty and should be used again as mock exams to help the student see tangible proof of their improvements. The best understanding of any subject comes from watching it being done/having it explained, doing it oneself, and then teaching it in turn.

In addition I have had an adults beginners group and did homework help in a range of subjects for pupils aged 8 to 12, so I have been teaching students from all ages and abilities.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. My name is John. I graduated from Sheffield University in the 1970s where I studied French and German. It was while teaching in a lycee in South West France as part of my course that I really developed a love of language and foreign travel. I subsequently went on to Liverpool University where I obtained a postgraduate teaching qualification. My teaching career extended over a number of years in a variety of schools in the public and private sector, including a spell as head of languages. In 2002 I studied to teach English as a foreign language. I was surprised to discover that teaching my native language in all its complexities gave me a valuable insight into teaching other languages, not just my own.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned the majority of my teaching lay in mainstream education, where exam preparation was of great importance. In addition, I have enjoyed teaching adults at evening and day classes. I currently teach English as a foreign language to home-stay visitors, but my main efforts are concentrated on private tuition to school children or adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Language learning can be easy, as long as it is varied and well structured. My basic method involves firstly presenting to the student the required vocabulary and grammatical structures, and then familiarizing him or her with them; this can be achieved through verbal drills, short exercises, word games etc. Once they are reasonably well acquired, they are put into a more practical context, imitating as far as possible real life situations e.g. 'asking directions in the street'.For this I use role play, sometimes involving what is called 'information gap', where the student must find out some practical piece of information solely by using the foreign language involved. Many students come to me because, simply put, they have lost the plot! Either they have experienced poor teaching or, for whatever reason, they have become de-motivated. In this case I would spend additional time practising verb formations etc - it is often grammatical structures which have fallen by the wayside.
My overall approach is friendly, but with high expectations. New tutees receive the first lesson free of charge, so that an assessment can be made as to the teaching required.

Personal Description:
I am a French native with large studies in languages. I have a Master's degree in Languages & International Business studies and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English & Spanish from the University of Lyon 2 in France. I speak fluently French, English & Spanish (I have spent 1 year between Spain, Mexico and Peru).

Teaching Experience:

During my studies, I have given lessons of French (grammar, oral expression, translation, literature) but chiefly lessons of English & Spanish to French pupils and students, beginners to advanced level. I have done it for 7 years in Lyon to people from primary school up to university. Besides, I have given private lessons to colleagues in business English and French economics.

Tutoring Approach:

I have in mind that every child, every pupil, every student is different. So before I start tutoring, I learn first about the person, its needs, its weaknesses, its assets and how to approach them. Then I can establish a plan to make it the most efficient and enjoyable experience. I use various tools, oral expression, reading, writing, grammar exercices, exam preparation, current life examples, news... And results have always been very positive!

Personal Description:
Hello,
My name is Martyna I am 20 years old, currently studying Mathematics and Psychology at Glasgow University and looking for a summer job (tutoring) during June and July. I have achieved an A in Mathematics and an A in French at A levels. I have lived in Poland until the age of 7 and still speak Polish at home. From the age of 7 until the age of 17 I lived in Belgium where I attended a Flemish school followed by a French school. At the age of 17 I moved to England where I did my A-levels. Living in three different countries has given me the opportunity to discover new cultures and speak four languages fluently.

Teaching Experience:

I do not have any teaching experience except for helping students in year 11 improve their French during my A-levels. However, throughout my time at school I have often been involved in helping some of my peers with their homework or students from lower years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly, patient, hardworking student who enjoys helping others. I believe I would be a good tutor thanks to all these qualities and my passion for Mathematics and languages.
