Personal Description:
I am a French native, qualified language teacher working as a Head of Department in a reputable independent school in Moor Park. I have a genuine enthusiasm for languages and for language education as I have had experience of teaching French in various contexts and countries.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught across Key Stages 2, 3, 4, 5 within several secondary schools in London. I also have the opportunity to teach pupils with Special Educational Needs as well as gifted ones and I am therefore aware of their need for differentiation through support and extension activities provided when delivering lessons.
Finally, I teach French to adults and I believe that helping them to learn my language is extremely rewarding, whether they are great beginners or fluent speakers.

Tutoring Approach:

I have specialised in one-to-one support and exam preparation (A-levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance, 13+ etc.) with tailored programmes to meet the individual needs as well as a creative teaching style. In my teaching, I always transfer to my students my own enthusiasm for languages and try to enhance their motivation and enjoyment of language learning. I set my students high standards for work and have received positive feedback from pupils and peers.

Personal Description:
I am only able to tutor from home or online for a while, as I've just had a baby. I can arrange an initial one-to-one session if the student is local.

Please contact me for prices. If you want longer lessons, let me know, and I will do you a very good deal.

PGCE - University of Newcastle Upon Tyne 1998 (Secondary Teaching Qualification)
I am a fully qualified teacher of Languages and English as a foreign language, with 13 years' experience of teaching all levels.

My work as an assistant examiner for a major exam board, has given me an excellent insight into what is required by the exam in order to gain a good pass.
I love languages, teaching, music and travel.

Teaching Experience:

CURRENTLY TEACHING AS and A2 level GERMAN ONLINE. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR AVAILABLE SPACES. DAYTIME AND EVENING LESSONS. From 10 per hour for revision classes

I have taught and supported students at all levels and for different purpose: GCSE, A Level, Holiday French and German, Primary French and German.

I have been an assistant examiner for a major exam board for A level French speaking, listening, reading and writing for the past 8 years, so can help to support students for exams and help them to become very familiar with the techniques and knowledge required to gain a good pass.

I have a 100% success rate with students. Last year, all 3 GCSE students gained A* and A (French and German) and my 3 A Level students gained A (French), and 2 C's (from a grade E/U in German)

I have taught online for Learndirect/myself, am computer literate, and have had success with students learning long distance via Skype.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a fun and enthusiastic approach to teaching and I am able to guarantee success at all levels. I have lots of success with all levels, and have been successful due to a variety of techniques, knowledge of exam papers/common difficulties when learning a language and teaching experience.
I am able to get the best out of students, by identifying their learning needs and styles.

Adult learners: I have a very successful and unique approach, which allows adults to understand how a language is constructed and which allows them to grasp the basics of a language and then 'play' with the language by adding new vocabulary and phrases. You will feel confident wiih the pronunciation of the language from the beginning, which is essential to make progress quickly and effectively.

What my previous students have said:

E - July 2012 - Intermediate Adult: I needed a quick few lessons to help me pass a resit at University, I realised this was a pressure on Sarah to help me pass but I had learnt more with Sarah in a total of 6 hours than I had in a whole year. I would highly recommend Sarah to anybody, Thank you Sarah for your help, you helped me pass with flying colours! E.

R - May 2012 - GCSE last minute help online - My daughter says " Sarah is really friendly and helpful and she gave me lots of techniques I can use to revise". Sarah has been brilliant at giving a late boost just before the exams, which was exactly what we wanted. We found her incredibly helpful and responsive and are sure she has been a major part of boosting my daughter's confidence - her grades as reported by school have gone up two levels in the last two months and Sarah has been a definite part of this

S - July 2011-May 2012 - Adult Casual - After having lessons for a few months now I can say that Sarah is a very effective teacher and has the ability to explain things in a simple and easy to understand way. I feel I have made significant progress in my learning and would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to anybody wishing to learn french.

Personal Description:
Hi there, I'm Bruno. I'm bilingual in Italian and English and I'm currently studying BA Modern Languages (French, Spanish, Portuguese). I have always gained the highest grades in languages, and endeavour to help your child achieve the same results. Another of my greatest passions is playing piano, having passed my Grade 8 exam in 2008.

Teaching Experience:

Aside from tutoring, I currently teach piano to children at a local youth centre, which I have found has helped my teaching methods considerably. Not only am I naturally enthusiastic when it comes to working with kids; I am also young, patient and experienced.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take an informal approach to tutoring. I have learned that children learn quickest when they are relaxed and having fun. I will provide learning material and set homework on a regular basis to further challenge and stretch my pupils.

Personal Description:
I have recently moved to Eastbourne following six years in West Yorkshire where I worked as a a self-employed independent education consultant, and also as a School Improvement Partner and Link Officer for Calderdale MBC. I have over thirty years teaching experience in primary, junior and middle schools.I have always loved teaching children and feel that I can help them develop self-esteem and confidence.

I currently have the following times available:

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings - between 9 am and 11.30 am
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons - between 1.30 and 3.30 pm
Wednesday evenings 6.45 pm onwards

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide background experience in teaching and education, having taught in five different schools in five different English education authorities, before becoming a School Link Officer / School Improvement Partner. I have held posts in large and small schools, with management experience in each, and I have taught children in all age-groups of primary, junior and 8-12 middle schools. I have, at one time or another, held particular responsibility for Curriculum Development, Maths, English, Science, Technology, ICT, PE, Art, French and Special Needs. I was Deputy Headteacher at two widely differing schools before becoming Headteacher of a small primary school. I maintained a teaching commitment of two to three days per week throughout my time as Headteacher of the school.

Tutoring Approach:

I base my approach to tutoring on an understanding of the individual needs of each student. I firmly believe that all children are capable of success. It is the tutor's role to find the most effective way of teaching for each individual child and to have an understanding of each child's preferred learning style. I always begin with an initial diagnosis based on discussion with the parents and an analysis of the student's current ability. Further sessions will concentrate on developing the skills of the student in line with a planned programme of work and targets, which has been agreed with the parents and student. I have a relaxed and friendly style with students but also have high expectations of their progress.

Personal Description:
Hola, Ciao, Salut,

My name is Graham, I am the founder of a Natural Language learning method which helps you 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, since then I have greatly refined how I deliver language classes, and constantly look for ways to improve the way you learn.

________________________________________________

Testimonials:

"As beginners in French we felt that Graham guided and engaged us superbly with humour, patience, generosity and an infectious enthusiasm. We immediately felt comfortable with his approach to learning a language and are delighted with our progress. We highly recommend Graham."

Naomi and Bruce
________________________________________________

"If you have previously struggled at school when learning a language, you can do no better than the Graham's method, using sight sound and practise you will be amazed how quickly your chosen language will 'sink in'. Whatever your reason for taking up the task of learning a language, within a short time the flexibility of this method will ensure that you start to speak and understand - Naturally!"

Beverley L.
__________________________________________________

"I have been learning Spanish with Graham for 6 Months. I was a complete beginner when I started, learning languages at school was very difficult for me as I am Dyslexic, but with Graham I felt relaxed and able to ask questions he also taught in a way that is unique, as I felt I was absorbing the language rather than learning the language. I feel I now have the confidence and ability, to engage in conversation with Spanish speakers; I put this down to Graham's teaching. I would recommend him to anyone considering learning a language."

Joe D.

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.

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...

Personal Description:
I am a 41 yr old graduate of Oxford University, where I studied French and German, and a postgraduate of the University of Manchester, where I obtained a Masters and Doctorate in English. I'm currently an Associate Tutor at the Universities of Salford and Edge Hill. I live in West Yorkshire, but can also cover South Lancs and Manchester.

Teaching Experience:

I'm really enjoying teaching some individual pupils at GCSE and A-level at the moment and now have the time to take on some more.

I have been teaching English in Higher Education since 2004. During this time I also taught an A-level student English on an individual basis, as extra preparation for Oxbridge entry - the student gained a place at Oxford. I've also taught two summer schools for visiting American students at the University of Manchester, and a first year university student privately last year.

I have experience with AQA syllabuses in French GCSE and English (Literature) GCSE and A-level (Gothic and Pastoral), and also OCR French.



I also worked for some years in the retail/hospitality sector, where I was an induction trainer, and had some involvement with NVQ assessment.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the most important thing in teaching is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where students are not afraid to ask any questions. I like to avoid overt formality, and make the teaching as enjoyable as possible. I'm very encouraging and positive, but within this will always offer constructive criticism when it's needed. I make sure sessions end with clear goals about what students need to do to improve - clear and achieveable goals, that I will check your progress with. I enjoy teaching a great deal, and will push you to achieve your very best.

For under 16s, I have a programme for teaching English, French, and German. This includes conversation, grammar, composition, and working with literature suited to the pupil's age range. It's flexible and pitched to any age and ability between 11 and 16.

Personal Description:
I am 22-years-old and I am currently undertaking a Master's degree in Development Studies at the University of Oxford. I graduated in July from the University of Leeds with a 1st Class Bachelor's degree in French and Spanish. I also hold a Professional Tutoring Certificate from the Tutoring Standards Agency, for which I was awarded a Distinction. 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:
Stafford resident currently working in a Midlands sixth-form college providing language training to 16-19 year-olds. Professional, a good listener and able to get the best out of my students. I have excellent results from my current students and wish to harness my knowledge again into the field of private tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages for over twenty years to students of wide ranging levels (Beginners to A2 Level). A lot of my recent work has been with sixth-form students across the region but prior to that I worked with adults at many establishments on a more group basis. Equally, I have vast experience of working within businesses, providing language tuition at all levels. My teaching has been diverse and very interesting and I always relish a new challenge.

Tutoring Approach:

A tutor has to be able to focus on the individual needs of the student and make a learning session both varied and interesting. He or she must keep up-to-date with modern learning methods and changes in the curriculum. I am able to tailor my sessions according to the particular needs of the individual and be flexible at any time.

Teaching Experience:

I help GCSE students get ready for their final French exam as well as adults who need to get confident in their fluency when travelling to France or to socialise but also when translation is needed for personal purposes.
I have 4 grandchildren in pre-school and school to whom I teach French using traditional methods such as books, games, songs.

We are a select group of specialist language tutors with a very simple mission; to provide consistently excellent tuition to students throughout greater London. With a number of us having studied at Oxbridge, and the remainder having studied at one of the prestigious Russell Group of Universities, we are appropriately qualified to tutor at the very highest level.

Teaching Experience:

With over 50 years combined tutoring experience, we have assisted many a student achieve and exceed their academic ambitions. Having thoroughly enjoyed doing so, we wish to continue offering our services as London's leading tutors.

Tutoring Approach:

Experience has taught us that each student possesses unique talents and abilities. Hence, it would be inappropriate to teach all students in the same manner. We tailor our teaching technique to meet the individual needs of each student. However, common to all our tutoring, is the notion of setting ambitious but achievable goals. We believe this to be the key ingredient to the success that our students have enjoyed over the years.

Personal Description:
Hello I am a native French tutor. I not only teach French because it is my mother tongue but because I think it is a very beautiful and interesting language but also a difficult one to learn. I myself have had to learn two foreign languages, English and Spanish, and I know how difficult and frustrating it can get but I also know how rewarding it is when you make progress.

Teaching Experience:

I am now working as a French Assistant in WGSB in Watford with A-level students, my part being to help them prepare their oral exam. It is my second year in WGSB and I really enjoy the task. I have also worked for a French Language school giving daily 3 hours lessons to teenagers and younger children from around world who come to France to improve their knowledge of French. In Spain where I lived for 7 years I gave private French tutoring lessons mostly to Adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Languages are made of vocabulary, grammar rules and barbaric sounds you just cannot get to pronounce sometimes:). They also reflect and convey a culture and a way of life which should be a part of the learning, especially as it seems to me that those cultural elements are the ones which can actually make the learning easier and more varied. And finally but not least I think learning a language has to be playful and agreeable, otherwise you will unconsciously reject the language and progress will be made much more difficult. Learning about others and learning to communicate in a different language is a great experience. Try it:)

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 currently a 2nd year Financial Economics student at the University of Kent, so I will be be free to tutor during the Christmas, Easter and summer holidays.

My availability:
20th December until 19th January
14th April until 30th April
12th June until late September

I studied maths, further maths, computing and economics at A-level and AS level and have a keen interest in economics and maths.

Teaching Experience:

During my GCSE and final year at my sixth form, I was appointed as a maths workshop mentor. This consisted of me helping the AS maths students who were having difficulties with their homework and exam questions etc. I have previously tutored young students for maths and english, who have improved their performance over time.

Tutoring Approach:

In general students come up to me with a list of questions that they might be struggling with and we'd work through them together providing a step to step method as to how to approach and solve the problems. In addition if a student is completely stuck on a topic then I am also willing to explain it from the basics and build on their understanding. :)

Teaching Experience:

Teaching experience in schools

I arrived in the UK in 2009 as a Foreign Language Assistant. I was teaching French in rural primary schools around Suffolk.

After my PGCE, I started working at Thomas Gainsborough School as a French teacher. I have taught primary school students at local primary schools (Wells Hall, Bures Primary School, Nayland Primary School) and pupils from Year 7 to Year 13. I have a very good knowledge of the GCSE and A-level exams.

I have also taught Spanish to students in Year 7, 8 and 9.

Other teaching experience (private tutoring)
-I have taught French to two mature students, for leisure. I was teaching them according to their needs: one student wanted to discuss the news and I was printing articles that we would study. I also helped this student taking care of paper work related to her house in France. My other student only wanted to practise the speaking, therefore we would speak in French for about one hour.

-I have taught French to two secondary school students who purely loved the French language. We would do games, grammar, speaking activities and we even made some crêpes!

Tutoring Approach:

I will tailor my lessons to your needs or the needs of your child. I can teach French to beginners, help with homework, re-explain what wasn't understood in the classroom, study novels or simply have a chat.

Personal Description:
I am a student at Sheffield University currently studying Spanish, French and German. I have worked as a teaching assistant in a high school local to my home town (Harrogate). During this time I worked with AS level Spanish students to improve their vocabulary, grammar and general exam technique. I also worked during a gap year in Buenos Aires and Morocco teaching English to children ranging from 4 years- 20 years old. In my spare time I also run and cox for the universities rowing team. I am an enthusiastic individual with a passion for languages and teaching them to others. I am happy to teach very basic skills to young children as well as offering support at a higher level to GCSE and A Level students who may want extra help in a range of areas.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in a high school in Knarsebrough (North Yorkshire) for 6 months with AS Spanish students. I worked with them either indivdually or in small groups, enabling them to resolve issue that may have arised within class; to recap learnt vocabularly and to develop effective exam techniques. I then worked on a less formal basis abroad both in Buenos Aires and Morocco teaching english to children from the age of 4 to the age of 20. My parents are both teachers and I have therefore greatly valued education and teaching from a young age.

Tutoring Approach:

I am keen to adapt to whatever the students specific needs are within tutoring as this is one of the largest benefits of one on one teaching. I am relatively young compared to other tutors and therefore may be more approachable for some students- this does not mean however that I will not expect work to be done! I am very familiar with both the current A Level and GCSE syllabus and can therefore offer a current view and top tips. Moreover, having started learning German from scratch when I started university, I have just experienced the first steps of learning a new language again, giving me many ideas for teaching beginners or those at a lower level.

Personal Description:
I grew up in south-west London, in Twickenham, before attending Tiffin School (Kingston-Upon-Thames) and Cambridge University, where I was awarded my BA (Hons) degree in History of Art. I have always engaged with extracurricular activities with enthusiasm, something which my educational institutions have given me ample opportunity to do.

My main passion has been acting. It has provided many opportunities to meet and get to know a huge range of different people, all in a challenging, intense environment. Fundamentally, it is the opportunity to engage with the perspective of another person and to attempt to embody this in actions and speech. It requires a performer to listen to and work with others on stage, and to work within a flexible, productive relationship - this is essential for any student-teacher relationship, as a dialogue begins to emerge.

My other interests have similarly complemented my academic pursuits: I have played rugby union for 14 years, up to and including university level, and used to play the french horn in the school orchestra. Both activities gave me an opportunity to voice my individual contribution to the group whilst working within a team, invaluable experience for academic discussion as well as confidence in many other areas of life. They offer different approaches to problem solving and develop some of the broader skills essential for academic success, such as self-expression, articulation, flexibility and confidence.

Teaching Experience:

My experience includes working with primary school students (age 4-6), through a voluntary program at secondary school. This involved helping children to learn to read. The weekly session required empathy and flexibility on my part, demanding an understanding that each child`s ability was completely unique, and that my approach needed to be modified to fit each person. In particular, I had to cultivate patience and a desire to listen and to understand everything the child was saying.

Whilst at university I also participated in a student run mentoring scheme, which gave unprivileged children the opportunity to understand life and work at Cambridge. It was a fascinating opportunity to understand some of the social and personal blocks to academic confidence, as well as offering ways in which these problems might be developed and overcome. Most importantly, it was a joyful experience to be able to help a younger person, and to understand that they were a unique person with their own approach to problems and solutions. By listening to him, I gradually learnt the ways in which they best communicated and how I could use those situations to our advantage as a student-teacher pair.

More recently, I have participated in a student-run university theatre tour which also comprised educational workshops. These workshops were a much bigger part of the tour than we had originally thought, and proved to be challenging at times. This was partly from the language barrier (many classes spoke little to no English, and were often too embarrassed to speak at all), but also from the unpredictable nature of the students. We had to work on our feet, employing what resources we had in a way which was meaningful, cumulative and ultimately led to an end. Our exercises required an overall structure and an ultimate purpose, but we also wanted to adjust this according to their reactions. Though I initially found this challenging, towards the end of the tour I could take charge of workshops and lead them with ease.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching and intellectual discussion have always been an important part of my family life, and it is an activity which I enjoy on a personal as well as professional level. My time at university has developed my ability to think in this way, as well as providing an environment in which I was surrounded by these kinds of discussion, with both professors and students. The emphasis on close-contact supervision periods at Cambridge taught me the importance of helping each student understand their individual form of expression.

I would avoid didactic repetition and seek to challenge the student and invite them to contribute. As well as work done outside the tutoring time period, I would encourage tasks such as presentations and prepared discussions as much as possible. I believe this work lays an essential base for passionate intellectual discussion, and it is something which certainly helped me in my university interview.

Coupled with this development of interest in particular subject areas, I would try to help the student's method of arguing and offer sustained, constructive advice on how that might be more effective. A university candidate is only as successful as their ability to communicate effectively and succinctly, something which may require exercises as different as confidence building or syntax and grammar. But as well as this self-belief and self expression, the student would need to acknowledge that academic (and educational) progress can be achieved by listening to others and attempting to understand their point of view. This dialogic aspect is essential to my tutoring approach.
