Personal Description:
New! Do you or your child need help with GCSEs and A-levels in 2014-15?

I'm Pauline, able to tutor you in a variety of subjects and specialising in French - I'm half French and am fluent in the language. I'm patient and friendly and use a flexible approach so you learn at your speed. Having recently obtained my PhD, I can relate to students and the specific pressures they face. I am CRB checked and can supply references on request. I am also available to practice speaking French, to improve your accent.

For Biology, I specialise in biomechanics, anatomy and physiology, muscle and exercise science and cardiovascular; but feel free to contact me and we can discuss what you need.

Lessons are 20 per hour and 30 for two hours, including travel in and around Newcastle.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2008, working with a variety of ages and in a range of topics from French tuition to sports coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work closely with you to achieve your goals, if that's to improve in the subject for its own sake, to pass an exam or even to be able to order in French at a restaurant! During the first session we'll agree on a timetable and set specific goals. We'll set aside a few minutes during each subsequent session to assess our progress. I am patient, friendly and reliable and above all I love teaching :)

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!

I am also a La Jolie Ronde licensee and teach children from the age of 3 and work with primary schools and nurseries so I am CRB checked.

Personal Description:
I'm a 25 year old Mathematics graduate from Bristol University. I spent my 3rd year abroad, studying maths on a French island off the east coast of Africa, and becoming fluent in French.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching all abilities and ages, and a good track record of results, with pupils always attaining or surpassing their targets.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths
In sessions I generally stick quite closely to the course, revisiting the school lessons and homework to target weak areas, whilst also working on a more thorough general understanding. When possible I let the tutee lead the session, so that they get the help they actually need, usually asking a few quick questions on any material skipped over to check for problems, but my teaching methods vary to suit my tutees.

French
I teach fairly independently of the school topics, revising grammar where necessary, as it is good grammar which makes everything else possible, but concentrating on speaking French as much as possible during the sessions, especially with A-level students, since this gives them the confidence they need to access the higher marks. I try to minimise rote learning as much as possible by working on generalisations and explaining the reason, and sometimes history, behind the otherwise random and confusing spellings and exceptions.

  • A-Level or Highers (£22 p.h.)
  • Maths

Qualifications:
Mathematics degree from Bristol University
I studied Maths, Further Maths, French and Physics to A-level, all with A grades (A* grades were not possible at this time)
I have recently returned from a year living and studying maths in France.

Personal Description:
Hello, I have a BSc MSc and PhD in organic chemistry and a PGCE (Physics). I have worked at the UEA doing research and I am now working at a leading secondary school in Norfolk as a Teacher of Physics.

Teaching undegraduates and postgraduates has been part of my routine during my time at the UEA. I have also worked as a secondary school teacher (abroad) for three years teaching science and chemistry up to A-Levels and therefore I have a good knowledge of the current syllabi used. I am passionate about teaching science to the young and have hence been involved in a lot of outreach activities (clarifying NMR, visible Spectroscopy, Mass Spectroscopy, ect) at the UEA. I am bilingual (French) and also like to teach this beautiful language to students.
I am also CRB checked (enhanced, April 2013)

Teaching Experience:

4 Years teaching experience in general science at GCSE / A Level
8 Years underraduate / postgraduate supervision at University level

Tutoring Approach:

One on one teaching is certainly different from classroom teaching and I like to use this opportunity to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a particular student. Each of my sessions are planned thoroughly with appropriate activities and teaching resources. Having sound basics for me is important for students to progress further and I therefore like to brush up on them from time to time depending on the needs of the particular student.

Personal Description:
I am a 3rd year Politics student at The University of York. As Politics itself is interdisciplinary, I feel I have a wealth of experience and expertise to offer any prospective students. I hold 8 GCSEs at A/A* grade, including all of the subjects I have offer to tutor, as well as A grades at A-Level in two of them.

Teaching Experience:

As part of Churchill House, School of English Language's Summer learning scheme, I have spent two residential stints in successive summers at a Derbyshire boarding school, assisting foreign students both in and out of class. I have worked with children between the age of 11 and 18.

During my sixth form years, I was a language coach for Key Stage 3 students at my school in French and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

Students should think aloud and use me as a sounding board. Essays should be spoken before they are written.
I believe in structuring arguments and tackling a problem one step at a time, something often rushed through in the exam. Quality will always outweigh quantity and the student should be reminded of this. I try to contextualize any of the points I make to a student, perhaps likening it to something they are already interested in. The student should stop thinking in terms of assessment and start to consider the application of the subject in the real world - this often leads to a greater enthusiasm. Analogies and acronyms are key to remembering important facts and figures. I do honor mark schemes and they will of course form the bedrock of my teaching, but in order to truly make the student better at the subject, I feel this is something that should be transcended. A pass is not enough. An A grade is my aim for my students.

Personal Description:
My name is Haidee, I'm a 19 year old from Liverpool studying French at The University of Liverpool. (I often go to Kirkby and Fazackerly to work and see family so would often be available to tutor in that area too). I have thoroughly enjoyed learning French for 8 years and would love to pass on my knowledge so that you can enjoy learning French too! This is my first time tutoring but I have a genuine love and flair for languages and have enjoyed teaching friends in my own time, so please don't let this put you off as I would love to help!

In school I sat my GCSE early at the age of 14 (year 9), passing with a B. I then continued to study French for the final two years of school and passed again with an A*. I also started studying Spanish in the last two years and passed with an A. During college I studied French to A2 level, passing with a B. In my time in college I spent a week each year in Montpellier living with a French family and attending a French language school, which I really enjoyed and feel helped me with my learning.

In my free time I love to cook (although I'm not very good at it!), go out for meals (when my cooking goes wrong!), read and watch films. I also love to practise Tae Kwon Do, which I started at the age of 15, although I don't do this since I moved away to university.

Teaching Experience:

This is my first time trying tutoring, but I often helped my sister with her French to GCSE level. I also helped a friend of mine who struggled in school to pass her English and Maths GCSE by using imaginative teaching and memory techniques, to which she was very grateful. Due to having friends that also study languages I am used to being able to help others in areas in which they struggle. I have worked with children and young adults from age 2-18 part-time for the past 3 years and so would be comfortable teaching from all ages.

Tutoring Approach:

Throughout my learning experience I have found that it is best to learn the basic rules and grammar of a language from the start, as this has made it easier to build on this. I have lots of quirky ways of remembering things myself and would urge you to figure out how best you learn in order to develop your own style. I also enjoy to watch films/news, listen to music and read genuine French articles to enhance my own learning and would be using these to make your learning more interesting. As not every individual is the same I will adapt my teaching to suit your style and meet your individual needs and if there's something different you want to do please let me know so I can change!

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate at the University of Leeds specializing in Mandarin Chinese and French language with a minor in German. As part of my degree I spent one year living and studying in Beijing at Capital Normal University . During the year I lived with a Chinese family who didn't speak English at all, allowing me to become fluent. Prior to this I studied Mandarin as a hobby and gained a grade 'A' at GCSE. I have also come first in national Mandarin competitions such as the HSBC speaking competition. I was also awarded two scholarships from the Chinese government for coming in the top 15% in a Chinese University.

I also speak French and studied this as a major at University. I spent one semester living and studying in France and once again I lived with a French family. At sixth form I was awarded an Anglo-French scholarship to study in France.

I studied German to A2 and qualified to study German as a minor as part of my degree due to my grades at A level. Whilst studying at University I was awarded a scholarship to study at Freie Universität by the German government during the summer.

I have a real passion for languages and have been very privileged to have had the opportunities to go and live in the countries where these languages are spoken and experience the diverse culture each country has to offer. Teaching is something that I am very passionate about and want to help others have the same opportunities I have been fortunate to have.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching both Chinese to English speakers and English to Chinese speakers. Whilst living in China I taught conversational travel English to a class of 50 trainee air hostesses. During the final year of my degree I also taught Chinese on a voluntary basis at a secondary school near Leeds. I taught the students beginner's Chinese and by the end of the year my students were able to hold a conversation, read and write basic Chinese and have an understanding of the Chinese culture.

In summer 2010 I was a language assistant at a French language summer camp. I taught A-level French to British school children preparing for their A-levels. I was required to talk to my students in the target language, teach them key vocabulary, how to form sentence structures and prepare them for their A-levels.

I am a qualified teacher and currently teach French, German and Chinese Mandarin to 11-16 year old students, so am very familiar with the national curriculum and examination specifications. In 2011 I also completed a module called 'linguists into schools', where I taught Mandarin in underprivileged schools around Leeds. I also have tutored one to one in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very relaxed in order to make the learner as confident as possible in a stress-free working environment. I love French, German and Chinese, which is probably why I am so enthusiastic about teaching it to others. I tailor my lessons to the need of the learner and work at the learner's pace. I am also quite happy to teach in the target language. I encourage students to speak confidently in all my languages, as I myself remember how daunting it can often seem as a learner. I believe that grammar and vocabulary is key when learning a language which is why I teach grammar structures whilst referring back to previously learnt vocabulary in order to build up a data base of new words. Being able to speak another language opens up many opportunities which is why I strive to help my students do the best they can.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed a PhD in Latin Literature from St Andrews University, although I am now based near Reading. I hold a Bachelor degree in Classics (Class 2:1) from Bristol University, a PGCE in Classics from Cambridge University, and an MLitt (with distinction) in Classics from St Andrews. I am currently self-employed and involved in tutoring, freelance writing and editing, and exam moderating. I am married and live in Winnersh near Wokingham, Berkshire.

Teaching Experience:

I have twelve years of teaching experience at Secondary Level, five years as Head of Department. I have substantial experience of language and literature teaching, from a wide range of Classical authors, at GCSE and A level, and have also taught university undergraduates. I have often tutored individuals outside of the classroom and am used to catering to the needs of students at various stages of their learning, from complete beginners to potential Oxbridge candidates.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is relaxed and I always aim to make learning enjoyable while also promoting intellectual rigour. I certainly encourage active participation and believe in allowing all tutees to comment constructively on their own progress or the relative value of different activities undertaken in tutorials.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified language teacher with a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages (Italian and French), a university degree in French and English and AS and A2 (grade A) in Spanish. I am an Italian native speaker but also fluent in Spanish and French with seven years' teaching experience in both secondary, Sixth Form and primary education. My students have achieved excellent results.

My aim has always been to inspire, motivate and support my students to work to the best of their abilities, to gain the linguistic skills they need and to achieve the best grades they can and whenever possible to exceed them. In addition to this, the cultural element of teaching languages to my students has always been a key element of the courses I have taught.

During my teaching career in state schools, probably one of the most rewarding aspects, apart from the actual exam results, has been to receive students' positive feedback, sometimes from the ones who were initially the least motivated but who in the end became interested and sometimes even passionate about learning a foreign language.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Italian to students of all levels (primary, secondary, GCSEs, A Levels and IB) for 6 years, French and Spanish to primary and secondary school students and Spanish to GCSE students. I have taught Edexcel Italian to both GCSE and A Levels.

Before working as a teacher in Secondary, Sixth Form and Primary education, I tutored students of different levels and backgrounds including business tutees. Recently, I also tutored a student preparing for the IB Ab Initio Italian exam.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is patient, helpful, flexible and friendly but professional. My aim is for my students to feel confident and comfortable when learning a foreign language. I always tailor my lessons according to my tutees' needs and interests. I will establish the areas on which you wish to focus, then prepare thorough resources. I will also support with tasks which are set by your school.

For more than one person and for a set of lessons booked and paid for in advance I can offer reduced rates.

Personal Description:
My name is Olivia, I am a 25 years-old native French woman graduated with a Master of Arts degree. In France, I have the CAPES of French and Literature (a competitive examination which is the equivalent of PGCE in England) where I succeeded as Valedictorian of the regional education authority of Caen. After a school year teaching in France, I have decided to follow my partner in England to experience a new adventure abroad.

Teaching Experience:

I am a French and Literature teacher in France where I used to teach in a secondary school in Normandy (KS3). I also made several internships in French high schools when I was a trainee teacher and I was a tutor for secondary students. In France, I also coached a lower sixth student for his A-levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I am highly motivated : French is not only my mother tongue but this is also my job and my passion. I'd like to transmit this passion to anyone who has the will to discover and learn French. I can adapt my lessons according to your preferences and your level: want to read and understand French Literature? Improve speaking? Need grammar and spelling lessons? Our first lesson will be a way for me to determine what are your goals, aims and preferences

Personal Description:
Since graduating from Oxford University with a French degree five years ago, I have enjoyed tutoring people of all ages, both in the UK and in Germany. I am bilingual English/German and spent the last two years living in Berlin. I am extremely creative, which manifests itself in my involvement in music, theatre, and art, but also greatly informs the way I teach.
I always look forward to meeting new students and welcome any enquiries you may have.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching French, German and English since 2009, tutoring students from year 7 to A level to adult learners. In 2012 I worked as a Learning Support Assistant to a child in reception. The focus was on literacy, numeracy, and social skills. In 2007-08, during the third year of my degree, I worked as an English teaching assistant in two secondary schools in France. Finally, since 2012 I have been involved in running singing workshops for adults and teaching drama games to children. I have recently started running a weekly choir.

Tutoring Approach:

I care about fostering a joy for learning in all of my pupils. I tailor my teaching materials to each student. Every person responds to different stimuli and it is necessary to understand this to provide the best learning environment for each individual. I derive real enjoyment from finding creative ways to help students get past any difficulties they might have in their subject. Whilst I have a very patient and kind demeanour, which is something that comes across in my teaching, I also have high standards and believe in encouraging a sense of self belief in my students.
