Personal Description:
I am a French native, qualified languages teacher working in a reputable private school in North London. 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 3, 4, 5 within several secondary schools in London. I also had 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.
I am also teaching French to adults and I believe that helping them to learn my language is extremely rewarding, whether they are great beginners or fluent speakers. In fact, I have been living overseas for several years now and I think that I became a good ambassador of my country and culture.

Tutoring Approach:

I have specialised in one-to-one support and exam preparation (GCSE, Common Entrance, 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 BA (Hon) graduate and Professional Freelance Translator, Interpreter and Private Tutor.
I am married with a 15-year old son.

Teaching Experience:

Following my degree, I returned to Spain to teach English for a year.
During the past three years I have taught French and Spanish on a one-to-one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

Based very much on what the learner wants to cover. Once we have agreed the initial starting point, I would advise that they purchase a suitable language course book with CD/DVD so that they will be able to consolidate what they learn in the relaxed but structured lesson with me, and also continue to listen, and speak in the chosen target language between lessons.
Although the lessons with me will be structured, I will go at the learners' own pace and ability, consolidating as we go along, and introducing fun exercises and games by way of revision, and also give constructive advice about what other resources can assist them.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified English teacher in the Banbury area. I am passionate about education and seeing young people reach their full potential. I thrive upon working along side students and empowering them to achieve.

I am interested in sport, reading and art.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching English and French to primary and secondary aged children. I have knowledge of teaching to a number of exam boards and a range of texts within those boards (including A Level). I also have a lot of confidence and understanding in working with pupils with a range of special educational needs (dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorder, behavioural issues) and pupils with low literacy levels and accelerated their progress.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a bespoke and pupil centred approach to tutoring. I spend time learning about pupils' interests and tailoring my tutoring sessions to meet these interests. I am prepared to listen to pupils' goals and aspirations and creating a programme to meet these goals within the time frame set.

For pupils who are not working towards an exam my aim is to explore literacy with very practical and real life applications.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced teacher of both classics and modern languages, and have taught in a variety of secondary schools. I have stopped classroom teaching now because of the demands of a young family but I am keen to carry on teaching in a different capacity. I am passionate about languages, words and communication and love to share this with others. I have lived abroad for prolonged periods in France and Italy, and travel to see friends there whenever possible.

Teaching Experience:

Since completing my PGCE in 1992 I have taught Latin, Greek, French and Italian, from beginners to A level and Oxbridge, in secondary schools, both private and state. More recently I have been giving private lessons to both adults and teenagers.

Tutoring Approach:

Successful language teaching should combine a fun approach using oral practice including song lyrics and games with a more structured approach to grammar; this gives the student confidence that they really understand the language used. The advantage of private lessons is that I can focus on what the individual learner wants, which might be lots of oral practice to become more proficient at speaking, or to pass a specific exam. I do like to set homework from week to week as this is an important part of progress; but it is not compulsory!

Personal Description:
Salut, comment ça va? :-) My name is Claudia, I'm 24 years old.

I've been interested in languages since I remember, but I fell in love with French when I visited Paris for the first time as I was 10.

I graduated form Warsaw University as a Bachelor in Journalism & Social Communication and as a Master in Political Science.

Apart form that I obtained two French Language Certificates and I lived in France as a au-pair, where I have gained valuable knowledge.

In my spare time I play piano, accordion and guitar "un peu":)

I am enthusiastic about languages. Twenty millions of people talk in French, so I believe that you can do it as well :-)

I'll help you to achieve your goals.

Teaching Experience:

I enjoy teaching and take a lot of pride when my students become fluent in French. I have over 5 years experience in teaching (one-to-one or groups of all ages):

- as a private tutor to children, teenagers and adults at various levels in French and English as a foreign language,

- 2 years as a kindergarten teacher

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everybody has own way to learn so I always adapt the lessons to the tutee, however, no matter which method we adopt I guarantee:

- professionalism,
- progress,
- great ambience,
- a lot of your satisfaction

I have had very good results with my students so far and can provide testimonials from past pupils if need be. Here's my little feedback:

- Faultless class, wonderful atmosphere and nothing but A at school. Merci Claudine! Ana

- Since I speak French my social benefits are untold! Thank to You Claudia :) - Robin

- Greetings from Paris! Reconnaissant Marc

Give a try to this lovely language which I heartily recommend.

Claudia

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Imogen and I'm 20 years old. I am a second year undergraduate student at the University of Kent, studying French, with modules in International History and beginners German during my first year. I previously studied the International Baccalaureate instead of A Levels and whilst doing this tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French - she went from a C to an A with just simple tutoring of the basics. My final grades for my first year included French grammar grade being a 72 (1st) and all other modules receiving above 62, with a 70 in International History and International Relations.
Last year (April 2013), I spent two weeks in Paris for work experience with a French company, improving my French by being surrounded by solely French speakers! I returned to Paris for 2 months over the summer to work for another French company, living and working in the French language which has greatly improved my understanding of reading and listening to French and I've become much more accustomed to speaking in French primarily too.
I believe that I have a friendly approach to tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned, I tutored a 16 year old girl in GCSE French. Over the 9 month period, we improved on her basic grammar skills and reading and listening skills also. As well as this, I have helped (not necessarily tutored, but essentially, tutored) several friends at different subjects that we both studied, particularly GCSE History and IB Biology Standard. I have a brother who sat his GCSEs in June 2013 and as most of our subjects were the same, I tutored him and tested him often in the subjects that I took at IB. From this site, which I joined in December 2012, I gained one student very quickly and during our 4 months tutoring sessions, she improved her basic understanding tremendously, progressing from a D to a B for her oral exam in April.

Tutoring Approach:

In terms of my approach to tutoring, I like to assess what the tutee finds difficult and try and work in a different way to how they are accustomed to to see if it helps at all. I draw a lot from my experiences as a student as I have found the ways in which I have been taught very easy to understand. I would like to say that my approach is a lot more suited to children because, like them, I am a student too and I understand what they are coping with and how their mind works. Listening is of key importance and I make sure that I listen to what my tutee is trying to say.

PLEASE NOTE: Although I tutor GCSE History, I would like to specify that it would just be for the Germany option.

Personal Description:
My Name is Billy and i am currently studying for a BA in Politics and East European Studies at University College London. I am fresh out of school and still have all the vital knowledge and exam technique that is still relevent to todays GCSE and A-levels. I am friendly and willing to work with all abilities, i am very much looking forward to helping others maximize their potential and improving their final grade. I gained 6 A stars and 6 A grades at GCSE, while gaining 2 A and 2 B grades at A level.

Teaching Experience:

I have so far helped family and friends, to a great deal of success. Before this summers exams, i helped a friend turn around his predicted D in economics to a very high B (78%). I was active in my school, tutoring struggling GCSE french and maths students who were at a loss or alienated from teachers. Often, getting help from someone who has recently gone through the same exam is the most valuable tool to any student. I found older students to be far more useful than teachers, older student experience is what i aim to provide.

Tutoring Approach:

With public exams, its not what you know but how you know it. I will aim to provide hands on exam technique with the use of real past questions and examples, starting from the basic right through to the most difficult and nuanced problems. In this way i aim to add one grade higher grade at the very least to a tutees prediction.

Personal Description:
My name is George, I am twenty-one years old and am currently a pre-final-year student of French and Spanish (BA) at the University of Southampton (I will begin final year in September 2014). My level of competence is higher in Spanish, due to my having spent the last nine months living in Spain on the 3rd Year Erasmus Exchange, a compulsory part of my degree. My written and spoken competency in Spanish is high (firm C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference). In French it is slightly lower, but still of professional standard in writing - last semester I achieved a firm passing mark in a final-year medical, judicial and computational Spanish-to-French and French-to-Spanish translation module at the Universidad de Alicante, in which I was the only student who wasn't a native speaker of either of the languages. As for my Spanish, I have also spent the last six months living with my Spanish girlfriend, who doesn't speak English. She is very well-spoken and I have adopted her style of speech during my time here.

I have a total of ten GCSEs all with grades A*-B, one AS level grade B in Computer Science and three A-grade A levels in Spanish, French and Economics. All of these were achieved during my time at The King's School, Chester (2004-2011).

I enjoy relaxing with my friends, many kinds of music, videogaming and following the world of rowing - I am a competent coxswain for the University rowing club, a sport I took up while at King's. I am generally a relaxed kind of guy to be around, easy to get on with, and pride myself in my ability to "take things easy" and not get stressed.

While living at home with my parents this summer I will have my car and am willing to travel reasonable distances to tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have no previous teaching experience as such, short of helping my younger brothers pass their GCSE maths. When I understand something well I have no difficulty explaining it to others in a clear manner. I don't know whether it counts in my favour, but I also managed to teach my middle-aged co-workers at my old job in retail how to use the new digital till system - a task far harder than it sounds!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and non-pressuried style of teaching, and will be able to help the student feel at ease. I do not have access to any teaching material unavailable to the public online, so would need the student to have papers/worksheets/textbooks etc from school for us to work on/go through together, or any problems they may be encountering in their minds for us to resolve. I would not call myself an academic, but my methods have enabled me to get this far with my languages and I would be more than happy to help others find a way to overcome any issues they may have with language learning.

Personal Description:
A final year MEng Automotive Engineering student at the University of Bath. Friendly and relaxed, looking forward to helping others learn and achieve their goals!

Teaching Experience:

I have no teaching experience yet but have three younger siblings and so have been called upon to help with informal tutoring in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

I will start by asking the student (or parents) to identify the areas in which help is required to make sure your requirements and my abilities match. I will then help the student to complete exercises by his or herself and be available if conceptual help is required. In this way, the student will have the necessary support to be able to work his or her way through a subject and build a good understanding of it.

Personal Description:
As part of my maths degree I followed a 'second string' in languages, enabling me to spend a year studying in France, which broadened my horizons and encouraged me to spend further periods living and working abroad. I have travelled extensively around Europe; I believe the best way to learn about another country and its culture is by experiencing it. My philosophy in life is to try anything once!

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English as a foreign language in Turkey, Germany and China, including both group teaching and one-to-one tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that tutoring must be tailored to the specific needs of the learner, with regard both to the material which is to be covered and the style of the teaching. The key, above all, is to ensure that the tuition moves at the learner's own pace, enabling him/her to fully grasp each section of the material before moving on to the next.

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

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

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

Teaching Experience:

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

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

Personal Description:
I am a native French speaker who has taken a break from teaching languages in order to raise my two children. I tutor students of all ages.

Teaching Experience:

I taught languages in a secondary school for 13 years, French to A level and Spanish to GCSE.

For the past 10 years, I have been an examiner for one of the country's leading examination board. In the summer I conduct speaking tests in schools.

I have taught French in primary schools and after-school clubs as well as tutoring people wanting to learn languages for pleasure or to help them communicate more effectively on holiday.

I have also worked with language students at university, at degree level, as well as supporting students wishing to achieve or improve their grade at the examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my lessons to individual needs and seek to build confidence in speaking and using the language by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practise or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. I aim to make all my lessons fun but also productive.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!
I work as an Associate Director in a market research company. As part of my job I am fortunate to be able to communicate with clients from different parts of Europe in their own language. I find people fascinating and love working and socialising with them.
I have been living in London for nearly 10 years. I previously studied and lived in Milan, Italy where I obtained a university degree in International Economics and Management. I also lived in French-speaking Lausanne, Switzerland where I did some of my studies.
I get on well with people of all ages, including children, and various cultural backgrounds. My goal in tutoring is not only to teach but also to help tutees grasp and practice the material in the easiest way so they can improve their knowledge of the language without feeling it as a burden.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously taught English as a foreign language, Italian and French to children aged 9-13, teenagers and adults. In the past my tutees have markedly improved their knowledge and have managed to fill the gaps they had. In my experience it usually takes a tutee 1-3 months to notice a difference and 3-6 months to feel more confident with the language, though of course this depends from person to person.

Tutoring Approach:

The first and most important thing for me is to find out where specifically the tutee has difficulties or gaps with the subject. I take into consideration how a student normally studies and what approach works best for them. Sometimes tutees have difficulty applying their usual studying method to certain subjects, so finding the right approach comes first.
I am a strong believer in using a calm but firm approach in tutoring as it is the most likely to yield positive results. I expect a tutee to be committed to the subject they aim to improve on and use the sessions to understand better and/or enhance their knowledge of the subject.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable and reliable law student. I achieved straight As throughout high school and have a wide - ranging knowledge base. I also have my Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards and now volunteer with my local dofe group so that I can give as many young people the opportunities that I gained through completing dofe. I volunteered for 5 weeks in Costa Rica in summer 2013 where I lived with local families and built a school.

Teaching Experience:

I volunteered in one of my local primary schools for one afternoon each week, where I taught French to the Primary 6 and 7 classes. I have taught dance to children aged 3-12 for the past 6 years and now work with the local youth theatre where I choreograph and help direct their shows.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very patient and find it easy to tune in to the student's needs. I can tell when a technique is not working for a student and can easily adapt to ensure that the student is learning in the way best suited to them. I am also extremely determined and will work with the student for as long as possible until they understand the topic and meet the aims of the lesson.
