Personal Description:
I am 45 years old and have two daughters aged 15 and 11.I have helped many students over the years to achieve excellent examination results by increasing their confidence in German and French.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a qualified languages teacher since 1992 and teach German to degree level and French to GCSE level.My most recent post was at a grammar schol for girls.I also teach conversational Italian.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to tailor my approach according to a student's needs which could vary from specific examination revision to conversational language.I consider myself to be sensitive to my individual students' personalities and work methodically with a good sense of humour to help students achieve their potential.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature with QTS and a post-degree Diploma in Teaching Foreign languages and a Masters in Sciences of Education - Educacional ICT.

Teaching Experience:

I have 14 years experience of teaching MFL at high school level and also to adults.
I teach Spanish, Portuguese, French and Latin. I taught at the University of California Santa Barbara as a Lecturer before I moved to UK, where my husband is from. I also worked for the Extremadura Government in Spain as a teacher and as a translator. I am now teaching in London, Spanish, French and Portuguese syllabuses and I have been involved in intensive exam preparation for students of GCSE and A levels. I also revise plans and advise PGCE students in Spanish and Portuguese.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to think of myself as a highly motivated and dedicated teacher of MFL that fosters high student self-expectation. This can be done by building commitment to quality education and developing strong bonds with students, parents and Faculty. For example, I believe in employing a variety of classroom techniques to raise achievement: I have recently developed a bank of resources for Spanish and French teaching to accommodate different learning styles. Aside from good teaching, assessing students' progress is important. For example target setting and monitoring is an important method in ensuring that students reach their potential. Finally, create motivating learning environments that capture the imagination of the students, using for example students performance charts with points to show each student's progress in each field and this can be used to monitor a student's acquisition of the target language.

Personal Description:
First and foremost, I am passionate about languages and language learning. In addition to my main languages of French and Italian, I have also studied, German, Spanish and Turkish.

I am an experienced teacher / examiner / tutor of French and Italian from the Northampton area and can cater for all ages and abilities.

I am focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - I will do everything I can to meet your expectations.

I have a BA (Hons) degree in French and Italian, a PGCE and an advanced certificate in Educational Management.

I am CRB checked.

I am an examiner in both French and Italian for three exam boards but also have considerable knowledge of all the other major exam boards.

I have lived and worked in France and have spent considerable time in Italy.

I enjoy all aspects of French and Italian culture and travel on a regular basis.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in both the State and Private sectors for 25 years with almost 20 years experience as Head of Department/Faculty.

In addition, I have worked as a freelance French and Italian tutor for a number of years.

I also tutor pupils towards Common Entrance examinations in French and as a former Head of Faculty in the private sector, have a keen awareness of the skills required to succeed.

I have taught intensive revision workshops for both GCSE and A level during school holidays.

I have run weekly French clubs for KS2 primary school children and have organised French language and culture days for KS2 primary school children.

Tutoring Approach:

This should be undertaken in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and tailored to individual needs to achieve maximum benefit.

Some pupils / adults struggle to learn a foreign language or are reticent to speak; I am a kind, patient tutor who works at my students' pace to ensure success for each individual and boost confidence, thus aiding knowledge and understanding leading to improved grades.

I believe that language learning should be an interesting and fun experience. The main principle is effective communication.

For students focusing on exam preparation, I also ensure that my students are secure in their knowledge and understanding of grammatical concepts and make frequent use of past papers.

I use a variety of materials including audio-visual in order to develop all four of the language skills, namely listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Personal Description:
Hola, Ciao, Salut,

My name is Graham, I'm based in Skipton, but usually travel to my student covering a large area of the North West. I am the founder of a Natural Language learning method which helps your to learn a new language in the same way you learnt your native language, but quicker!

It's specifically developed around the way your brain organises and understands languages, helping you to connect with your own individual learning experience and making it enjoyable.

I have a background in IT training, teaching Martial Arts, Personal Development Coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming, my role is to remove the obstacles people find or impose upon themselves, reinforce positive habits and keep finding ways to make learning fun and engaging.

** PLEASE NOTE **

If after your first taster class, you are happy to book a block of classes, usually 4 - 12 weeks, I will reimburse you the fee you have paid to buy the contact details. Also I offer a full satisfaction guarantee, so as to ensure you receive tuition that suits you, and is effective.

NB. Any correspondence with contact details will have those details removed by UK Tutors, as this ensures that they are paid for their service too. Please do not think that I am being rude or inattentive if I am unable to reply, as I cannot see your details.

- I will always try to respond to requests within 24 Hrs where possible.

- Any questions you may have can be discussed via the contact messages, before making any sort of commitment.

Once you have purchased the contact details we will then be able to arrange our first class.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching languages and developing my natural method since 2008.

I started offering private 1 to 1 Spanish tuition back in 2008, since then I have greatly refined how I deliver language classes, and constantly look for ways to improve the way you learn. I now also offer Italian and French tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in helping students get to grips with their languages, giving them the strategies to communicate easily, and feel confident in then building upon that. My method is quite different from what you may have experienced in school, I use a variety of different resources, and will help you to understand the basics in your chosen language quickly, naturally, and most importantly, enjoyable.

I encourage a lot of listening & speaking during the lesson, helping you to have a real practical ability to speak & understand your new language.

I generally say that within 3 - 6 months anyone can get from beginner to intermediate/upper intermediate, and setting 90 day goals is very effective, helping you to feel sense of achievement & progress. This is depending on how much you can practice on a daily basis, at least 20 min per day ideally, and how strongly you connect with your motivation for learning a new language. I will provide you with lots of ways of working this into your daily life, even around a busy schedule!

The cost is the same for 1 - 2 students, as I find that couples do particularly well, supporting and testing each other, and practicing together throughout the week (this could also be 2 friends). The price per head goes down in increments for additional friends/family members.
Lessons are usually 1.5 hrs, but can vary depending on your needs. 1 to 1 Lessons are £20/hr and Online £15/hr.

The structure of the class can vary as I tailor them to individuals needs, though generally include:

- New Vocabulary/ Grammar - Building on previous classes, with brief explanation & practice.

- Dialogues, listening to native speakers, and completing missing word exercises.
This is the most complete and central part of the lessons as it covers everyone's different learning
styles; reading, listening, writing, and then speaking, followed by a review of the dialogue.
These also follow your own interests and hobbies where possible, making them more relevant
to you and how you would use your own personal active vocabulary.

- We also listen to songs, have word search puzzles, films and more...

I use Skype for Online classes, and E-mail any sheets/materials necessary before the lesson.

Usually for the first class at least I would come out to you (where possible), helping you to get set up with everything you need, after which Online classes are available if more practical, or if preferred.

Personal Description:
I am currently an actor at the Central School of Speech and Drama, having already studied Modern Languages (French and Spanish) at the University of Durham which included time living and studying in Vigo (Spain) and Clermont-Ferrand (France).

Teaching Experience:

Following completion of my CELTA qualification in Spain in 2007 (which involved teaching adult learners of English), I have variety of experience in teaching from helping fellow students at University, teaching English in a French Lyce and at summer school in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

The important part of tutoring is creating a more individual approach to learning and the subject or subjects. I feel it is important to discover what about the subject interests the tutee or how we can hook the topic to the individual so that you feel the desire to learn more about the subject of your own accord. It is important that learning is fun and not a chore and so, as well as thoroughly working towards any coming assessments, I like to work around the subject to find what it is about the subject is important to you so that the learning becomes grounded in the individual which gives a deeper knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
I am French, having grown up and attended school and University in Paris. In 2008 I moved to England to work at the University of Nottingham as a lectrice; I then obtained the PGCE and have been teaching French, Spanish and History in a local secondary school for 3 years until I decided to start studying again. I also obtained the CAPES to teach English as a foreign language in 2011. I am currently studying for a PhD in modern history at the University of Nottingham, but am keen to keep teaching during my research. I am married to an English man, and enjoy reading, music and films as well as sharing the wonders of French cuisine with my husband!

Teaching Experience:

I have taught French and Spanish up to A-Level for the past 3 years at Toot Hill School, and have also taught French at the University of Nottingham for a year, concentrating on speaking skills.
I have also tutored students for A-Level in history, as well as teaching the Ancient History GCSE course at Toot Hill School for two years.
I have a wealth of experience working with children, teenagers and adults alike (my husband is English and I am doing my best to drum French into him!), I have tutored privately in France for three years before moving to England, teaching English as a foreign language and have also worked as a translator.

Tutoring Approach:

I adopt a friendly, enjoyable approach to teaching, with the belief that promoting a love for learning is the key to the success of my students. Whenever possible, I use examples from the culture (songs, films, cartoons) and history of the countries where the language is spoken to give more relevance to the learning process.
I feel that my wide-ranging academic interests encourage students to locate particular subjects within a wider context, which I find often fosters a renewed enthusiasm for the subject itself.
Regarding teaching languages, I believe in providing a strong and clear grammatical background, but i also encourage students to be more confident and spontaneous in their use of the language, be it orally or in the written form, a system which I found worked very well with my pupils while I was teaching full time.

Personal Description:
I am a part-time student working towards a PhD in a subject encompassing English literature, philosophy and film studies. I am passionate about and engaged with these subjects in all their aspects and especially enthusiastic about using my knowledge of each and sharing and communicating ideas with people on all levels, within and outside an academic setting. I have previously studied towards an MA in Contemporary Literature and BA in English Literature with Philosophy and Ethics at the University of Liverpool and Liverpool Hope University respectively, during which I experienced and benefited from exposure to a multitude of approaches and interpretations of these subjects, in my own research as well as from tutors and fellow students. I am also fluent in French, having lived in Belgium as a child; as a result, I am very conscious of how I and others translate our ideas into words, interested in the process of developing self-expression and understanding, as well as able to adapt quickly and effectively.

Teaching Experience:

Over the course of my studies, and particularly over the last year, I have participated in and taught BA and MA level seminars, including co-teaching a second year undergraduate module in English Literature, for which I lectured, led seminars, marked coursework, and held tutorials with individual students. I have also tutored a student studying towards professional accreditation as a Chartered Surveyor in English, going over their written work and coaching them for their presentations.

Tutoring Approach:

I am primarily interested in establishing what the student expects and hopes to gain from tuition, in understanding their knowledge of and approach to the subject and in collaborating to develop it further, as well as creating a shared space into which I can bring in other ideas. I feel that defining and developing a sophisticated and highly personal approach to a subject is the most important aspect of education, for both academic achievement and in relating your studies to your life as a whole, and this is what I want to encourage; my own adaptability, interest in communicating ideas, and thorough knowledge of these subjects allow me to pick up on strengths and weaknesses in different approaches and to help them to realise their potential in relating them to established ideas and practices.

Personal Description:
Hello!

My name is Ismael. I am from Spain and I speak and teach both Spanish and French.

Teaching is not just a pastime for me. I have studied languages and teaching for several years. I did a BA in Modern Foreign Languages at the University of Granada, Spain, and am now doing a secondary school PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) at the University of Portsmouth.

I have countless hours of teaching experience in the UK alone. I have worked in Portsmouth City Boys School (Portsmouth), Barnfield West Academy (Luton) and as a Spanish and French tutor for more than 20 different students.

Teaching Experience:

I teach Spanish and French to children and adults; all ages are welcome. Whether you are a beginner or advanced I am happy to work with you to improve your skills. In the past I have been teaching primary school students, GCSE students, A level students, university students, young professionals, mature professionals, pensioners and students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

Since I have worked in several schools, I am really used to the GCSE and A-level exams, their marking and the necessary preparation for them.

Tutoring Approach:

If you would like some references to help you take the big step of learning or improving your Spanish or French, I am more than happy to provide these, as I have had many UK based students already.

I try to keep my rate as affordable as possible and you will have a qualified tutor to help you with your learning from day 1. Feel free to contact me.

My charge is normally £15/h for one to one tutoring, and I also do group sessions on request.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Ismael

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:
With a French father and English mother, I was brought up bi-lingual and lived for 12 years in France before coming to live in England. My love of the language and its culture has stayed with me ever since, and I now enjoy teaching all ages individually or in groups. I believe that learning becomes easier if it is relevant and fun, and is taught using interactive resources that put the language in the right context.

Teaching Experience:

2 years with West Sussex County Council taking Adult French Beginners Levels 1 and 2 for 8-20 students (supporting the OCN exams)

2 years running Le Club Francais after-school club in three local primary schools for ages 5-10, which was based around songs and interactive play.

2 years with individuals or small groups whilst living in Dubai.

Tutoring Approach:

Qualified to teach adults, and plenty of experience teaching youngsters with interactive learning too!

I tailor the classes to purpose - with plenty of activity-based learning in French Club style for the youngsters mixed in with appropriate grammar input, and role play for the adults - after all that's what you'll need when you visit France!

So, whether you wish to learn French to follow your dream of relocating, improve your holiday French, for work or to pass school exams, then taking the time once or twice a week to improve your French can make all the difference.

With 3 children, I have myself been through mentoring for exams, and can help learners develop essential skills to include grammar and conversation, with some fun bits thrown in for good measure!

Happy to work at your pace and tailor to your needs.

Personal Description:
I am a French Erasmus student studying urbanism as a postgraduate at Queen's University. I would be happy to share my knowledge on France to other students.
I lived for a year in Germany as I was 16.
I play clarinette since I am 8 years old.

Teaching Experience:

Two years teaching french, history and geography to a 15-16 year old student
5 years helping with homework at a primary level
One year of teaching clarinet to a beginer.

Tutoring Approach:

The first session will be about understand what you want of our sessions and what is your level in French or German or music. From that level we will work toward the basics you miss or do not understand, and toward your homework or your school lessons if you have some. If you agree I will give you some homework (one small exercise about the subject of the day), so you can practice alone during the week. We also will have sessions about your assignments and essays to help you succeed at school.
For French tutoring, if you want, the cessions can also be made of discusisons about something interrest you, about live in France, or something else. It is also a nice and less scholar way to improve your language.
For music, you will have a small exercise to present for next week to be sure you remember what we did. We will not be able to get further on until you are able to do it correctly.

Personal Description:
I teach languages at Secondary level (11 - 18) and am also an exam marker for AQA. I am passionate about all things French and enjoy inspiring students to feel the same enthusiasm. Having lived and worked in France for several years, I know that there is nothing to compare with the satisfaction of being able to make yourself understood, and eventually to have conversations and build friendships, with people of different nationalities.
To learn a foreign language really is to see the world in a whole new light!

Teaching Experience:

As well as eight years' experience of teaching languages in Secondary schools, I have extensive experience of tutoring a range of ages individually. My students have a track record of success and many former pupils have gone on to study Languages at University, including at Oxbridge.
I am used to working with young people of all abilities and confidence levels and know that the best learning happens in a supportive environment.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student needs a unique approach and we can work together to agree where the focus needs to be: whether building confidence with speaking, working on accent and intonation, perfecting tenses and grammar, fine tuning Controlled Assessments or essays, developing strategies for successful listening and reading - or a combination of these.
