Teaching Experience:

I have a long history of teaching experience (Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and French), starting from my own GCSEs when I began teaching others in the same year-group. Throughout my years at college as well as university, I've been also actively teaching such as working for Harris Academy Bermondsey and Deptford Green School as a Science Teacher, teaching students from Year 7-11 as part of a team of top flight City companies such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Times and Ernst & Young.

- Holder of TDA (Training and Development Agency) Registration

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching/tutoring is simple yet distinctive, I first get to know my tutee(s) to understand the areas where they excel and struggle. Then we work together to tackle those areas which they find difficult as well as maintain and improve the remaining ones where they are already achieving.

I truly believe that our success is in large part due to our adaptability and ingenuity and I will try my best to make you achieve your goal.

Personal Description:
I have 5 years experience working as a Spanish teacher in secondary schools in London teaching years 7 to 13, and my exam classes have a very good track record. I have worked with both Edexcel and AQA in this time, so I know what it takes to get the best grades, especially at GCSE. I am also very happy to work with younger children, helping them to feel more confident with mastering the basics in a language. If your child needs extra support or practice with any particular area, just let me know.

I have made several trips to South America, and have lived in Chile and Spain. I am also a fan of Spanish and Latin American films and literature, so if you would like to incorporate some more cultural aspects into lessons just let me know, as this can be very motivating.

Teaching Experience:

I am PGCE qualified, CRB checked, and have been working as a Spanish teacher for the last 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I get on well with children and young people, and would be happy to focus on any area with which they needed extra help. Sessions would be individually tailored and at the student's own pace. If there are any specific texts, exam boards or textbooks with which the pupil is working I would request some advance warning of this.

Personal Description:
I studied French and European studies in Birmingham before moving to Southampton. I currently work part time and study part time. I am interested in movies - especially Spanish and French, reading, photography as well as current affairs.

Teaching Experience:

During my university degree I spent a year living in Dunkirk, France where I taught adults both business and general English. At the same time I also tutored some children from a nearby school. I have worked with many Phd students through their English in their dissertations and currently tutor GCSE students.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is really something that needs to be enjoyable. It's not like other jobs and why should it be? At the same time it is something I take seriously. I am more than willing to accomodate needs whether they be for an education, for an exam or for pleasure.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching privately for over 14 years and I have been teaching on-line for over 3 years and I am passionate about teaching Modern Foreign Languages. I graduated from Reading University in 1980 having also studied at Grenoble University in France followed later by a TEFL course at Swansea University.After teaching French and German in a secondary school I moved into Exporting. Since 2000 I have been running my French and German Tuition and Translation company. I make regular visits to France and Germany and have many contacts in both of these countries. I regularly work also as a Translator of French and German into English. Italian is another language which I teach having studied this fantastic language at Reading University. English as a Foreign Language is another subject with which I have great experience and I often work for SILC which is a French company that sends French teenagers to the U.K. to improve their English. I have organised educational visits for French teenagers also in the U.K. on behalf of SILC.

TUITION ALSO VIA SKYPE.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught privately for over 14 years and previously worked as a French and German teacher in a secondary school and have taught French and German to adults at Leisure Centres for over six years. For the past 14 years I have taught French and German to all levels including University level with some excellent results at GCSE and A Level. I also teach English as a Foreign Language and regularly organise study visits for French teenagers in my area. I have also taught Italian online to Beginners and also supply Tuition via a Skype connection to students for all of my subject areas. Teaching via Skype is an extremely effective means of teaching a language providing both visual, oral and written back-up with the student interacting with the Tutor. I have worked for Apricot Online Learning which provides Tuition via Skype for students who are unable to attend school on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very sympathetic approach to Tutoring and always get the best from my students. I have many years of Teaching experience and always check at every stage that the student can use the concepts which he or she has been taught. Teaching is done in a relaxed manner which puts the student at ease and this helps them to achieve their full potential. As stated above all of my students have passed all of their examinations in either French or German while studying with me at GCSE and A Level. I am passionate about my vocation as a Tutor and always go the extra mile to achieve the very best results for all of my students. Tutoring requires commitment and a total dedication to the role of mentor and educator.
My job is not only to educate but also to inspire and lead by example through proven methods which maximise a student's potential.

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old female graduate from the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow. I have a joint Honours degree in French and Italian (language and studies) for which I gained a 2:1. I also have a Masters in Marketing which I also obtained from the University of Strathclyde. I am currently working as the Marketing Co-ordinator for a Plant & Tool Hire company based in Glasgow, where I am responsible for the Marketing for the whole business, including Head Office and our 59 depots throughout the UK. I spent a year abroad in Lyon, France, during my fourth year of university, where I worked as an English Language Assistant in two high schools. I am extremely patient and understanding and have a lot of experience tutoring both young children and teenagers, especially in French and Italian. I am passionate about working with and helping others and find it to be a most rewarding experience and I would love to pass on my knowledge and skills, in my specialist subjects, in order to help develop the skills of the tutees I will be working with. I am a very driven, confident and enthusiastic individual and I give 100% to everything I am involved with and I am passionate about achieving results and helping others to do so also.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently undertaking the PGDE in Education to teach French & Italian in secondary schools and have acquired a great amount of experience throughout my school placements and have gained great confidence in teaching the new National 4 and 5 qualifications. During my fourth year of University, I worked in two high schools in Lyon, France as an English language assistant, teaching children, teenagers and young adults, from the age of nine to twenty three. I was responsible for helping them with all aspects of the language, and developing their reading, writing, listening and verbal skills by preparing and working on a number of different activities. I also taught them about British culture, history and lifestyles so as to help develop their knowledge of Britain, particularly Scotland, in general. I ensured that I worked differently with different individuals, depending on their style of learning and I took a different approach accordingly. I aimed to make my style of teaching both informative and fun so that they enjoyed learning and I believe this is something I am always successful in as many tutees I have worked with have commented on my positive and helpful way of teaching.

In my final year of high school I was involved in the 'Peer Education' programme whereby I went into five different French and Italian classes and helped those who were experiencing difficulties with the subjects. I helped particularly with grammar issues as these seemed to pose the most problems for pupils and I also helped them prepare for upcoming speaking and writing tests. I also helped pupils to understand easier ways of making the most of their French or Italian dictionary and taught them creative and simple of ways of tackling listening and reading tests. Moreover, I worked on a one to one basis with a Higher grade pupil who was experiencing problems with French and we explored different ways of making difficult areas that much easier. I was also part of the 'Paired Reading' programme where I worked with pupils aged eleven to fifteen who experienced reading difficulties. I met with three pupils for one hour each week, on an individual basis, and we would work on techniques for improving their reading ability and they would read to me. These two programmes were very gratifying, especially when I witnessed a pupil's confidence grow as their reading skills improved.

I have also tutored two family friends, both in French and Italian, with a great focus on exam preparation and the skills that they needed to do well on class tests. I also help my niece and nephew with their French, focusing greatly on the areas they find the most difficult.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a different approach to my tutoring depending on the individual I am working with. On my first session with my tutee I will find out the areas that they are experiencing the most difficulty in, and what their strengths and weaknesses are, as this will help me to develop an effective and helpful way of teaching. I prepare various worksheets, practice tests and activities which are interactive and will allow for valuable learning. I will ask the tutee what their preferred way of learning is and look at ways in which they successfully learn in other subjects and try to incorporate this in to my way of teaching. I encourage tutees to ask questions wherever necessary and to state if they wish me to try a different approach. I believe communication is the key to successful learning and I pride myself on my friendly and approachable nature and my ability to achieve results in my tuition. On the whole, I am aware that my way of teaching has to be of benefit to the tutee so I will tailor my approach to suit their wants and needs.

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Emma

Thanks for reading my profile and I would love to have the opportunity to help you improve your French.

I am a very motivated and organised person who has spent a lot of time in France and consequently I have a good level of French pronunciation. I enjoy teaching on an individual basis as well as to groups of children or adults who all share the same goal to learn or improve French!!

I am a 41 year old mum of two boys (6 & 12yrs) and I am able to empathise with different approaches t o learning as required to suit the student. Sometimes, a more light-hearted approach may be needed to re-ignite the interest in learning a language and my experience in teaching children of various abilities at KS2 level enables me to do this with ease.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 7 years, I have been teaching French at several different primary schools (KS2) in Chester during curriculum time.

I have also been running my own successful lunchtime and after-school clubs. These clubs cater for children 3-11years old.

At GCSE level, I have successfully raised the grades of many students and have a good knowledge of the AQA examination syllabus. I can offer assistance in the written assignments and can offer invaluable assistance in the preparation for oral examinations. I have a good understanding of French grammar which is an area I find many students struggle to understand.

At an adult level, I have taught complete beginners through to business people who need/want to learn or improve their French to assist with moving abroad. I find teaching adults to be especially enjoyable due to the enthusiasm shown which leads to fast results.

Tutoring Approach:

At our first meeting, I will assess your level and find out which areas in the French language (written, spoken, listening, reading) you find particularly challenging or especially want to improve in. I will also discuss with you ways that you particularly like to learn and the timescale you envisage our sessions to run for.

I am open and flexible in my approach and will make the sessions enjoyable for you. I will tailor my lessons each week according to your needs and prepare additional (home)work if requested to ensure continuity in our learning.

I hope I have shared with you enough information about my wide experience in teaching French at all levels to encourage you to contact me. I am passionate about learning French and would really like to share it with you too!

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and passionate graduate from Oxford University with a love for languages. Having achieved a first class degree in French and Linguistics, I am keen to pass on my knowledge and love of language and literature to other students. I completed a research Masters in West African French literature, and am currently pursuing my studies in the second year of my doctorate whilst also developing my teaching experience. I hold a TEFL qualification and have taught a wide range of students in France, Brazil and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

TEFL teaching:
- Beginner and Intermediate classes at International House London as part of training. Highly commended.
- Part of a student-led initiative in Oxford to teach English to low wage workers. We organised evening classes for international adult students of multiple levels of proficiency.
- Teaching experience in Wizard and ERTE schools in Bahia, Brazil.
- Private tutoring for GCSE student as well as adults learning French.
- English tandem learning with advanced adult learner from China: conversational and written English.

British council:
- English teacher for 11-16 year olds in Laval, France in 2009-10. Planned and delivered English lessons focussed on speaking and listening, current affairs, and reading skills.

Warwick University:
- Teaching first and second year students in French language and literature as part of my PhD.

Primary school:
- Teaching assistant 2006-7 in Garden House School, London. Prepared and assisted lessons for year 1 pupils, as well as organising timetables and caring for students. Involved some special needs assistance.

Youth work:
- Worked as part of two youth work teams over 3 years to organise activities and teach teenagers aged 15-19.

Mentoring:
- Reading programmes with younger students struggling with English language.
- Advised and assisted GCSE and A-level students in preparation for exams and applying for higher education.

Tutoring Approach:

Depending on the individual needs of each student, I will prepare a range of tasks to build confidence in specific areas of weakness. From past experience, a lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers to learning, so in all cases I seek to reassure a student of existing strengths and abilities before and during our tuition. More generally, we will develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through different activities to strengthen and accelerate ongoing language learning. Where appropriate/desired, I will bring in relevant texts and materials to develop broader reading building up analytical and critical skills. Grammar work will always feature, though in well-balanced chunks which aim to be accessible AND enjoyable!

Most importantly, I hope to inspire students of any level to relish and enjoy their studies, and to yearn for a more solid grasp of their subject and a higher proficiency in each area of language learning.

Personal Description:
Hi, I have always had a love for languages and would love to instil you with the same enthusiasm. After having lived abroad as part of my degree, I then graduated with a BA Hons Degree Class 2.1 in Modern Languages (German, French and Italian), after which I obtained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). After teaching, I also worked for International companies, using my languages extensively by liaising with customers and colleagues overseas and also translating and interpreting. I have always kept my languages fresh by reading foreign literature and keeping in touch with German / French friends. I am mother to 4 children, but even after my children were born, I continued to do some freelance translation. As a mother and as a teacher, I know the importance of patience and how important it is to make learning worthwhile, enjoyable and fun!

Teaching Experience:

After qualifying as a Languages teacher, I have taught German and French in a Comprehensive School to the 11-18 age group. I have tutored teenagers and adults privately in both German and French. I have also provided French classes in one of the International companies I worked for.

Tutoring Approach:

I can offer a learning program which is specifically tailored to suit the individuals needs, whatever the level of knowledge or ability. If required, lessons can be adapted to focus on specific areas such as grammar or conversation practice. My experience in using languages in a business setting also means that I am also well placed to teach lanuages to adults for business purposes. I am a perfectionist and will strive to offer the best tuition possible, by thorough preparation and the use of a variety of learning materials and approaches. If required homework can be set to consolidate knowledge learnt. I want your learning to be productive and engaging. It can open a window into foreign culture and soon you will realise how much fun it is to be able to communicate in another language.

Personal Description:
My name is Aurélien, I am 22 years old and I am a French student currently attending the Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc at Imperial College (last year). I am from Supelec in France, which is one of the top ranked Engineering Schools there ("Grandes Ecoles") and I received my A-level degree with distinctions. I have extensive knowledge in French, Mathematics and Physics. My English is good even though I am still learning.

Teaching Experience:

On top of the fact that my studies provided me extensive knowledge in some fields, I managed to improve my oral skills in public too so that I have no problem to explain difficult notions in front of a public. I already have some experience in teaching since I have been a tutor for two years though the French program : A "Grande Ecole", why not for me? There, I prepared workshops and personal teaching sessions every week in order to help my student to improve their knowledge and their skill, but also to open themselves to the culture.

Tutoring Approach:

As far as I am concerned, I think that the approach to tutoring has to be adapted to every student. Each one has his own problems of methods and understanding so that we have to find together a good way to learn for him.
What I can provide : methods class, learning help, learning methods, direct applications, complex exercices to go further, test reviewing... and others.
I am totally able to adapt myself.

Personal Description:
My name is Jessica. I am a French American university student in Nottingham. I study languages and International Relations. I love traveling, mostly in Asia, and learning languages. I am a fan of synchronized swimming and dodgeball. I am a dynamic, outgoing and generally positive person.

Teaching Experience:

I taught both English as a foreign language in France and in China for two years to students from the age of 6 onwards. I also taught French for a year in China to people of all ages and levels.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring consists in three simple steps. First, is to establish the level of the student. For that a few exercises to test reading, writing and comprehension. Second, is to set goals for the student by the student and myself. Third, is to find the most effective learning scheme to achieve these goals. Some students have better visual memory some visual and some kinesthetic. Tutoring is providing the most suitable teaching methods for one particular student.

(I am the brunette in the picture)

Teaching Experience:

I have spent a year working in France as a teaching assistant with the British Council, where I taught English to students aged 15-22. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience working in a different culture, and to hone my presentation and organisational skills in a new and challenging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make learning fun, and to motivate students. I do this by setting interesting and diverse themes. I then divide individual classes into several activities to help keep students engaged. I regularly employ vocabulary games and set challenges, which are surprisingly effective way for students to learn and retain new words whilst making the lessons more enjoyable for the students!

Personal Description:
I have just recently graduated from the University of Oxford, having studied a 4-year French & Spanish course, spending my 3rd year abroad in Colombia and France. I have had experience teaching classes and individuals in countries across the world, usually through voluntary charity organisations, but have also taught in government schools and followed an official syllabus.

Teaching Experience:

Taught for 3 months in Colombia in charity schools established for poorer children who do not have access to government schools
Taught for 3 months in Peru in government schools and schools set up by charities for children (also taught one-on-one classes for adults at this time)
Taught in a primary school in Cameroon for 1 month
Taught children from 4-18 years old in an orphanage in Sri Lanka for 1 month
Volunteered as a teaching assistant in Slough for 3 months

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to adopt a more flexible and less stringent attitude than one might find within the school system: attempting to directly relate to the individual pupil and present them with a less formal environment which enables them to address any doubts they might have regarding particular details in the subject being taught. As a recent graduate, I am able to understand the concerns of students, and can present them with techniques and methods that I have found useful in my own school and university career.

Personal Description:
I am a Spanish native speaker from Madrid, currently working as a Spanish Language Assistant in a High School (years 7 to 13) in Greater London. I studied Translation and Interpreting with Spanish, English and French and I am passionate about languages, especially about teaching Spanish as a second language.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a private tutor for more than seven years. I have been a tutor for primary, secondary and adult students, English (as a second language) and Spanish language and literature. I have also worked as a MFL teacher in an academy (secondary school students).

I also volunteered as a Spanish Assistant in the University of East Anglia (Norwich, UK) for one semester.

Currently, I am working as a Spanish assistant in a High School (yrs 7-13).

References can be provided upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

As said before, 95% of my teaching experience is based on tutoring. I started tutoring when I was in High School, to get extra money, and my first tutoring approach was with my classmates. After that, as my first tutees got a good progression and excellent results, I started tutoring students from out of the school, and I have done that ever since, always focusing on each student's necessities and analyzing progression.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher of Spanish and French with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) living in SW London. I hold a B.A.(Hons) in Politics, Philosophy and History from the University of London and I am also qualified to teach ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages). I have lived in London for nearly 20 years now and in all this time I have worked in administration and finance prior to returning to the teaching profession.

Teaching Experience:

Since my return to teaching eight years ago, I have taught French and Spanish up to A level in several secondary schools across London and Surrey, both in the private and state sectors. I have followed specifications from various examination boards -mostly Edexcel and AQA- for both GCSE and AS/A2, therefore I am very familiar with the exam requirements for those courses. I am also an examiner of French GCSE with Edexcel and have tutored privately many students of all ages and levels in the languages mentioned above.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to tailor my lessons to the age and needs of my students, make them as enjoyable and purposeful as possible by using a variety of resources and activities, e.g. games, role plays, laying emphasis on learning for communication purposes. My aim is to help students develop their ability to use the language effectively in everyday situations whilst providing them with a solid foundation in the grammar so that they can produce their own language independently. For me one of the most gratifying aspects of tutoring is to see how much students benefit from it and appreciate your one-to-one input, and how quickly they make progress as a result.

Personal Description:
Having always taken academic learning seriously myself, I am keen to help others do the same. My 12 A* GCSEs led to A* A* A* A grades at A Level, and now I'm studying towards a French degree at Oxford University. I am a very capable linguist, whose knowledge has a particular depth to it, having studied French, German, Latin and English Literature at A Level. This level of expertise stems from a natural love for these subjects, and this passion is a great asset for a tutor to have.

Teaching Experience:

I have assisted Key Stage 4 lessons at Chesterton Community College, taking small groups aside to help them with grammar and speaking tasks.

Tutoring Approach:

As I teach, I am able to focus on the exact components of the subject which it is necessary to know for the examination being taken, so that everything I teach is of the utmost relevance. Having been through the same exams I will be teaching, I will make it clear exactly how to excel. This practical approach is nonetheless accompanied by the natural enthusiasm which I have for these subjects.
As an Oxford University student, I am also well-equipped to shed light on the Oxbridge application process, as well as the application process for Hills Road Sixth Form College, which is where I took my A Levels.
