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:
I am a French native teacher from Paris. I have been living in the UK for 12 years. I used to live in London and have just moved to Worthing with my family .

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching French in the UK for 12 years. I worked in a lot in companies when I first arrived in London so did a lot of Business French. I then started having private students who wanted either business or social French. I can also help students prepare for their GCSE or A level or any other exams.
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.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient, reliable and will teach French to suit your individual needs (exam preparation, conversation, business, etc...)

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 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 7 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. 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. I have experience of all 3 exam boards for GCSE- AQA, OCR and Edexcel and have thorough knowledge of both SHP and Modern world specifications offered by the boards covering topics from Medicine, American West, Weimar and Nazi Germany, the Cold War, America in the 1920s and 1930s, Vietnam War and Britain in the 20th Century. For A-level, I am again knowledgable of all 3 boards, and have thorough knowledge of both content and exam technique for the Cold War, Russia, Weimar/Nazi/Germany post 1945, US Civil Rights, the Crusades, the French Revolution and Britain in the 20th Century.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been a private tutor for 3 years and have taught 6 students A-level History and continue to teach one of them into A2, I have also taught 4 students GCSE History and I have also taught and continue to teach GCSE Spanish and GCSE French and 1 student GCSE English. I also teach English up to GCSE standard and teach English as a Foreign Language and am currently tutoring a Polish and Chinese adult learners. I tutor adults also for any subject I offer and at the moment, I'm currently teaching English and Spanish to adult learners. I also tutor primary school children for English and Maths up to 11years old and then for both French, Spanish and German. 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:
Hi I'm Roxy, I'm twenty two and living in Harringey in North London. I graduated in July with a first class honours degree from the Guildford School of Acting and am now doing teaching work alongside pursuing an acting career.
I'm also interested in creative writing and am currently a member of Chichester's Young Playwriting Programme.

I can also offer practical advice and monologue coaching for drama school auditions and National Youth Theatre (of which I was a member)

Teaching Experience:

Classroom Assistant at Regents Park Community College, Southampton - Teaching English and Science at GCSE level in small groups and in the classroom of 30 approx. Very good knowledge of English AQA syllabus.

One-to-one English tutoring for young Polish woman recently moved to UK.

Classroom Assistant Day supply work at nursery and primary schools in London.

Supply work as Teaching Assistant in autism unit at Trinity School, Dagenham (ages 16 - 18)

Teacher for three years at Farnham Stagecoach Theatre Arts: Drama classes for main school (ages 6 - 18)
Drama, dance and singing classes for Early Stages (ages 3-6)

Tutoring Approach:

I set you a goal to have achieved by the end of the sesson which is clear, specific and measurable. This helps so we know what we're working towards. I'll ask you questions that require you to verbalise and demonstrate your own understanding of the subject, thus feeling far from the style of a lecture.

For monologue coaching and acting audition preparation I will work through your speech with you using specific acting techniques taught at all NCDT drama schools, such as Units and Objectives and Actioning as well as other rehearsal techniques.

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 have been a teacher for more than thirty years. I was a university lecturer and private tutor in Hungary and I continued teaching as a tutor when I came to England. I am passionate about teaching; helping pupils improve is very important to me.

Teaching Experience:

A few years ago I was teaching drama at different levels, as well as English literature and language. I started teaching Maths for younger children when I came to England. I also marked theses in Literature as a lecturer and advised students on writing papers in Literature. I taught several courses; for example, Essay writing, Language skills, Communication skills and Drama and Theatre. I based my drama lessons on my experiences as a Fulbright scholar at the Drama Department at the University of Oregon, USA.
I am especially enthusiastic about helping students with their essays; teaching them how to find focus and express their ideas precisely and coherently; organise and proofread their work; how to write a good introduction and conclusion.
Pupils I have taught have been admitted to Wolverhampton Girls' High School, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Chase Academy.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an extremely patient teacher. I have helped children and adults of different ages to achieve their goals. In my opinion anyone can improve; the teacher's role is essential in the process. It is my responsibility to understand individual needs and to make sure that I create the best learning environment both physically and psychologically.
I am friendly and strict at the same time.
It is very important to tailor lessons to individual needs. My main priority is to find the best way to help the student improve. Motivating them can take different forms: encouragement, gentle pressure, being more strict and so on. Every student is different; it is my responsibility to find the best approach.

Personal Description:
I am a French student. I graduated in Political Science in 2010 and I am currently a first year PhD student in cultural policies at the University of Glasgow. My thesis will deal with French cultural diplomacy since the end of World War II.
On a more personnal level, I am interested in art in general: I especially love Literature and cinema and I am a fanatic of musical theatre, even though I cannot sing a note!
My other hobbies are writing and traveling.

Teaching Experience:

I was a tutor in my hometown of Lyon (France) last school year and I taught a wide range of subjects such as French, English, History or Maths to students aged 11 to 15.

Tutoring Approach:

My previous experience of private tutoring made me develop my pedagogical skills, which I had never really had to use before. As I was new to tutoring I was a bit anxious at first but it turned out easier than I expected and my students didn't seem traumatized by me either. I am friendly but focused on work and methodology.

Since this is private tuition, I always try my best to adapt to my pupil's needs and personnality in order to offer him or her the best possible service. I constantly make the effort to acknowledge the fact that what seems obvious to me is not necesarily so for others and I always encourage my students to ask questions whenever they don't understand something. I'd rather explain one point several times than leaving it uncleared. As often as I can, I also tell students not to fear to make mistakes since it part of the learning process, and what makes teachers useful. In addition to academic knowledge as such, helping students to grow self confident in the subject(s) I teach is one of my priorities.

Besides, I pay much attention to communication with parents, since it seems important to me to hear what they have to say about their child and exactly what they expect form me.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated Teaching Professional, with significant experience as Translator/Interpreter, European Project Manager and Public Relations.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 25 years of language teaching in diverse environments - secondary schools, vocational schools and as a private teacher - and I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.

I have also been a tutor for all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults, interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning. I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or to their business and travel goals, as well as communicating inside the family.

My aim is to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere.

I tend to focus in improving spoken fluency and listening skills of my students. Grammar is also a part of my tuition as part of the conversation skills and explained in context. Culture is also very important in each lesson.

I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results of good communication between both parties and learner assessment throughout the course.

Fundamental to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and supporting the students in improving their skills.

I can ensure fast and excellent results.

I completed a term abroad in Granada where I took an intensive Spanish language course. There I acquired a level C1/2 according to the European framework of reference for languages. I spent one academic year in Paris where I was a British Council Language Assistant teaching English as a Foreign Language in two secondary schools in the suburbs.

Teaching Experience:

I undertook a seven month teaching placement in Versailles, France (October 2013 - April 2014), where I taught English as a Foreign Language in two Secondary Schools. I have also given private lessons since 2012, as well as teaching private English lessons in France. One girl I taught increased her grade from a B to an A* in her French GCSE oral. Furthermore, I assisted language classes at my school between 2009 and 2011 for years 7 - 11.

Tutoring Approach:

My approaches are various. Having completed my A levels and GCSEs relatively recently, exam technique is still fresh in my mind and I hope to be able to teach students how exams work as (perhaps unfortunately) this is very important these days. However I am a strong advocate of instilling the foundations of language, namely grammar and vocabulary, as this is how I learnt best and how you can understand a language. I also believe in immersing yourself as much as possible, for those who are serious about learning a language - by watching films, TV programmes, reading books and writing. Practice is vital if one is to achieve a high level and there can be no short cuts. I am also happy to work through topics in a textbooks and helping with exercises as, as mentioned earlier, practice really does make perfect.

Of course, lessons will be tailored to individual needs, and they can be as formal or informal as one likes: from straight grammar to half an hour of chatting for those who aren't learning a language for an exam, for example.

Personal Description:
Having always been passionate about languages, I have studied them keenly and learned how to break them down and make them accessible to anyone. I am also fascinated by art and history and therefore aim to incorporate notions of foreign culture in language teaching. At the same time, I am a trained actress, and am happy to tutor drama students or people preparing for drama school.

Teaching Experience:

I left uuniversity in 2011 and have been working as a private tutor ever since. I teach both casual learners and students, particularly GCSE and A-level French and German. I also teach English as a second language and drama/acting.

Tutoring Approach:

Although I learned all my foreign languages through a rigorous method very much based on writing and grammar, I am happy to adapt my method to the student's needs. Personally, I believe that conversation is the key to becoming fluent in a language, but at the same time I could never bear to neglect the importance of writing and reading comprehension.

Personal Description:
Hi! I'm an Oxford graduate with a 2:1 in English Language and Literature. I graduated in July, and since then I have been looking for interesting ways to spend my time whilst also raising some money for further study. Tutoring appealed to me at once as a rewarding way to put the skills that I learnt during my degree to good use. Reading English at Oxford has honed my critical thinking, analytical abilities and study skills. Last year I also co-wrote a novel which has just been published in the UK, which really deepened my understanding of how to write effectively. I'd love to tutor others and help them to develop these skills too! In my spare time, I love to read, write fiction, and I also work as a sub-editor at an online short story magazine. My main address is in EN4, but I am also happy to tutor in Oxford.

Teaching Experience:

In October this year I successfully completed an assessment for the selective tutoring agency Blue Tutors. During the assessment I had to demonstrate my tutoring ability to a trained assessor, who described my communication skills as 'excellent'.
In my final term at Oxford, I volunteered with Schools Plus, a program which runs after school tuition sessions for struggling students in areas of economic disadvantage. I spent half a term working with GCSE English students, tutoring them on an individual basis in the run up to their January modules. As part of the selection process for the program, I also attended tutoring training.
When I was in the 6th form (in 2009), I also volunteered as a classroom assistant in my school. I was working with students who were having difficulty with essay-based subjects like History and English. I worked with two students in their History classes, helping them to understand the work they were set in class and working through it with them. I also had to use my knowledge of French to help one student who had not yet learnt to speak fluent English, translating the teacher's instructions for her and helping her with words she did not understand. Also between 2009-10, I helped to run two after-school classes for Key Stage 2 pupils, one in Literacy and Art and another in Drama. This involved planning and delivering lessons to classes of about 5-10 children, and keeping them engaged with the topics they were learning through activities designed to both teach and entertain.

Tutoring Approach:

My experience of tutoring in the past has shown me the importance of patience and respect in teaching. Especially in essay-based subjects, it is crucial that a teacher allows their pupils space to develop their own ideas, and respects their independent thought. Learning by rote has only limited usefulness: the best way to excel at a subject is to understand it, so I always explain concepts as fully as possible and move at the tutee's pace, making sure that they have properly grasped each concept or issue before moving on to the next. My Schools Plus training emphasised the idea that the goal of tutoring is to help a student to help themselves, enabling them to tackle problems rather than solving things for them. I think that this is fantastic advice, and it is a rule which I always try to bear in mind when tutoring.

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.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and friendly individual with a passion for learning. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University and subsequently completed an MSc in the History and Philosophy of Science at the London School of Economics. I am fascinated by the natural world and by scientific enquiry. When I'm not teaching or learning I enjoy foreign cinema, playing tennis, and strumming the guitar.

Teaching Experience:

After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a full-time teacher at d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form College, Oxford. During this four-year period, I taught A-level Philosophy, Sociology and Religious Studies (all AQA examining board). More recently, I have worked as a teaching assistant at Canterbury High School, focussing on struggling students and helping them achieve their potential. Concurrently, I have also worked as a private tutor teaching GCSE Maths, Chemistry and Physics as well as 11+ Maths preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

Once I understand exactly what a tutee hopes to achieve (e.g. A* Maths GCSE, or simply understanding algebra) I have three main priorities as a tutor:

i) to identify a students strengths and weaknesses through short tests

ii) to provide a course of study and assessment that will focus on the weaknesses and monitor progress

iii) to give the student belief in themselves and their abilities and to instill a love of learning!

I am an experienced and qualified tutor based in London and I am offering One-to-One tuition to students of all ages and levels. I can coach you in preparation of internationally certified exams or simply help you learning a new language or improving your skills (grammar, reading, conversation, speaking...)

Teaching Experience:

I have several years experience as a tutor and private teacher for small groups, and I am confident teaching students of any age.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs.

Personal Description:
I have many years of tutoring behind me and am currently studying for the Diploma in English Teaching to Adults.

I'm widely travelled and have spent many years living abroad. This has contributed to a high degree of fluency in Spanish and French. I acquire languages easily, being open to the cultures in which I find myself.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught exclusively in continental countries. One year in Finland, six years in Spain and two in Germany. In all cases the teaching took place in private schools or in company offices. Much of the teaching was 1 to 1, the rest being in small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that language acquisition takes place when the learner is relaxed and so my approach may be considered informal. The choice of materials is a joint decision. Good classes can take place with or without them.

I also favour a communicative approach, which entails giving a needs analysis to all my learners.
