Personal Description:
Hello,
I have just completed my PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at UEA. I also have an MA (Distinction) in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, and a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature. I gained straight Firsts in every module I studied. I also have a good Fine Art degree from Chelsea College of Art and Design. I have been a private tutor for twelve years, and have taught many children in that time.

I am currently tutoring in the North London area, including Tottenham and Enfield, but from January 2017 I will be tutoring in South London, particularly Sutton in Surrey.

I'm a 40 year old lady, and am an aunt, godmother and childminder to several children.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at undergraduate level at university as well as writing skills in an academic skills centre. I have also taught SATs to thirteen year olds. I have a PTTLs degree level 4 qualification and teach on an Access Course to adult learners. I have been a private tutor for ten years, and have taught many children in that time. For GCSE, I have a 75 per cent success rate of my students achieving As and A*s. My other students, whose first language may not be English, achieve Bs.

I have taught AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL syllabuses at GCSE and AQA at A-Level.

Please note that I do not teach any Eleven-Plus or verbal reasoning syllabuses and that I prefer to teach older children (13 plus)

Tutoring Approach:

I use creative writing exercises with my students to allow them to develop their writing skills, as well as their creativity and imagination. This approach has been very successful with my SATs pupils. I also use past exam papers, model essays, and devote time and attention to close reading of set texts at GCSE and A-Level. I have also recently branched out into giving art lessons and I help out at an arts and crafts club at the local school.

I can also provide Skype lessons and find this has been successful with older and university level students.

I have a friendly, professional approach and find I develop a real rapport with my pupils, who find their results and confidence improving with my tutelage.

Personal Description:
Fully qualified teacher with 25 years experience of teaching FRENCH, GERMAN & SPANISH to GCSE, AS LEVEL and A LEVEL in schools and colleges. I have also prepared many groups for Cambridge exams in ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE.
I currently teach MODERN LANGUAGES (to A Level) and RELIGIOUS STUDIES (to A Level) in a Sixth Form College.
I teach ADULT LEARNERS too, at all levels, both for GENERAL LANGUAGE and BUSINESS LANGUAGE.
I have prepared hundreds of youngsters over the years for GCSEs and AS/A LEVELS in these subjects and am very familiar with the demands of these courses and exams.

Teaching Experience:

I teach in a Birmingham Sixth Form College where I work as Head of French
I have taught pupils/students in UK schools and Colleges over the last 25 years, specialising particularly in MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and AS/A Levels.
My teaching experience has been mainly in UK schools and colleges but has also included 5 years living and teaching in France, Spain and Germany.
I worked at Stafford College of FE for 9 years where I was head of MODERN LANGUAGES
I have been an Examiner for MODERN LANGUAGES at GCSE and A Level with a major Examination Board.

Tutoring Approach:

Professional and friendly approach, looking for real, measurable progress and increased confidence for the learner
Most young learners need a tutor who understands the requirements of the GCSE / AS / A Level exams and can train students in tasks that will prepare them for these
I find that students often need their confidence boosting and many discover that they know more than they realised.
Adults also learn fast and are often surprised to find they are more able than they thought

Personal Description:
I hold a Spanish teaching certificate from the Instituto Cervantes (the Internationally-recognised Spanish culture and language institute) and a first-class degree (BA) in Spanish. In addition, I recently qualified to teach in Adult Education by gaining the PTLLS qualification (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning sector), and am also trained in participatory teaching method (popular education theories) which influence my teaching style.

I previously lived and worked in Mexico and Peru and have used Spanish in a professional context as a freelance interpreter and for other commercial companies. In addition I am CRB/DRB-checked.

I am very keen to share my enthusiasm for the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures with willing students and will tailor lessons to suit your personal requirements and interests, whether Spanish for academic exams, work or travel. A consultation class can be booked to gauge your level.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 2 years' experience in providing private, easily digestible, flexible Spanish tuition to adults, GSCE students and those learning for professional reasons. I currently deliver a Spanish course for adults in Chorlton and will soon be rolling this out into other areas of South Manchester. In addition, I have also taught adults courses on other subjects such as job hunting skills, CV writing and self-esteem/ confidence.

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience, pupils engage best with a foreign language when it is used in context since this brings the words and grammar to life and gives it a purpose. I understand how intimidating foreign language learning can be and make sure I simplify grammar and explanations as much as possible to make new information digestible. I focus on encouraging confidence in spoken Spanish, which makes the class more fun, but will happily tailor the classes to suit the individuals' needs and interests.

Please note that my tuition charges are flexible depending on your financial situation.

Personal Description:
Hello.
My name is Leonor. I am from Spain and 38 years old.

I am a teacher of Spanish and teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. I love my profession and find teaching more a pleasure than a job. I have discovered that teaching is a two way experience where the teacher often learns as much from the students as the students learn from the teacher. For me, teaching languages is a very rewarding experience. I work with a couple of colleagues online, so we can offer more languages tuition, such as English (British English), French, German, Portuguese and Entrance Exams. All of us are native, qualified and experienced.

I am especially passionate about my native language, Spanish. I love not only the expressive beauty of the written Spanish, but the enchanting, musical sound and rhythm of spoken Spanish. The magic of the language of Cervantes is one of the reasons I have dedicated my life to the study of languages, especially Spanish.

Besides a passion for languages and linguistics, I also enjoy traveling and tracing the roots of human history and civilization. I am especially fascinated by ancient history.

Teaching Experience:

1. Bachelor Degree in Teaching English. University of Cadiz, in Spain.

2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of Leon (Castilla Leon), in Spain.

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

I am a member of ELE Congress (Spanish as a Foreign Language).

Several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian) from children to adults, and all cases with really good results (available to show in case of need).

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on the Direct Method, I use a technique of teaching a foreign languages without reference to the students native language. This method of total immersion has been proven to be the most effective means of rapidly developing real language skills. It is recognized as one of the best methods for language instruction and currently used around the world. With this method, students quickly develop the ability to think in their new language. This approach is both easy and satisfying. Student progress is quite rapid. Students progress at their own pace in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. With my method, students will begin speaking their new foreign language from the very first lesson (guaranteed), even if they have never spoken a word of their new language before.

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammars tiresome and less than effective? COME AND TRY MY METHOD, THE DIRECT METHOD!

Personal Description:
I am an MFL teacher with bags of enthusiasm and an immense passion for French and Spanish. I work in a Boys Grammar School in North Kent, and have enjoyed spells living in Quebec and Aix-en-Provence in the past. I find empathising with students easy, and have girls and boys between 8 years old and adult on my books. In my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, reading and cycling, having recently completed the London to Brighton cycle in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Teaching Experience:

I currently teach in a Grammar school in North Kent. I have also done a year's supply in South Yorkshire, as well as in a primary school in France. I also have 9 months experience of teaching French in Essex. I am currently tutoring 4 students going into a third year and I am familiar with the A Level system as well as the IB, having only last year helped two IB students achieve the necessary grades for Durham and Cambridge Universities. I am sure a reference could be available upon request!

Tutoring Approach:

I like to support students in their learning by being thorough, professional, but approachable. My effective tutoring in the past has helped students to feel more confident, happier and untimately this shows in their results. I was very proud of two students IB results last year, but I take equal pleasure from progress in other areas, such as a marked increase in confidence and ability with a student of a younger age.

Personal Description:
I work for a large firm of city accountants in London. I have completed my chartered accountancy exams and will be a qualified chartered accountant as of the end of August 2015.

I studied French language and literature at Oxford University from which I graduated with a 2:1. I studied French, Latin and English at A-level.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children of all age groups, from nine year-olds to A-Level students, in Latin, English, French and Economics. Most recently, I have tutored a thirteen year-old boy, helping him to pass his Common Entrance exams and get into Eton College with excellent results.

Tutoring Approach:

I can help anybody with speaking and writing the French language as well as analysing a broad range of French literature. For English, I can assist anyone with the creative, linguistic and grammatical side of the subject as well as the critical analysis of both set texts and unseen passages. For Latin, I can help with literary analysis and translation, both Latin-to-English and English-to-Latin. My style of tutoring is flexible - it is entirely dependent upon the nature of tutoring that is required.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from a Masters degree in drama at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama having graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English. Teaching has always been a great passion of mine and one to one tutoring is the most rewarding, in its opportunity for directness and specificity.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for three years and have also tutored drama in schools over the last few years. I have also had teaching experience abroad, teaching English as a foreign language in Indian and African schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to make learning fun whilst also ensuring fast and effective progress. I ensure that I get to know my students' ways of learning as soon as possible in order to tailor my tutoring style to their individual needs. I hope to be able to offer a way of learning different but utterly beneficial to the current exam syllabuses which can often seem fairly daunting and rigid on first impression.

Personal Description:
I specialise in teaching French to adults who want to improve their speaking and listening skills in French, and also help you get to grips with the grammar you need to really understand and unlock the language.
I learned my French grammar at school, but I really learned how to communicate in French when I lived and worked in Lyon. I have also worked for a French humanitarian organisation, as a French wine buyer and have spoken French at home over the last 25 years. I am married to a Lyonnais and have lots friends and family living in France.
When I lived in France, I taught English as Foreign Language (EFL) to adults. Learning a second language as an adult is different from learning at school, the main thing is to keep it interesting, lively and relevant for you.

Teaching Experience:

Over the years, I have taught many adults like you who want to improve their language skills, including but not limited to:

- Tailored French tutorials on a one-to-one basis for complete beginners, people coming back to the French language after a long gap, and confident speakers who want to take their French to the next level
- Bespoke French language group lessons in small businesses where people come together to learn French for both their personal and professional development
- Adult evening classes at a secondary school for people wanting to learn French as a group course

I also host a weekly French club for people who want to practice speaking French and have organised several accompanied cultural day trips to France for groups of up to 20 people.

As an English as a Foreign Language Teacher (EFL) in Lyon, I have taught a second language to:
- Professionals at EDF, learning a second language to forward their career
- Air Traffic Controllers, St Exupery International Airport, Lyon
- People learning a language to achieve their their own personal goals

My work as a group facilitator and trainer includes:
- Creative problem solving workshops
- Strategy development, design and planning workshops
- Project management training

Tutoring Approach:

My job as your tutor comes with many hats. I'm there to guide you through your learning, motivate you to keep moving towards your goals, make it easy for you to understand, put you at ease so you can practice, make mistakes and feel the confidence to correct yourself. These are just some of the things that you need when you are learning a language.

You will learn faster if you are open to exploring the language, prepared to take a few risks when speaking and are willing to engage with lots of different learning strategies that keep things interesting and challenging.

Let's face it we have all proved that we have the skills for learning languages, just by the fact we speak our own language. My approach to teaching you French is to tease out all the strategies and techniques that you already have for language learning and help you apply them to learning French.

It's a fascinating journey, I think, with many benefits that go way beyond being able to conjugate verbs correctly, although of course grammar is important.

Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Personal Description:
I live and work in Bristol, previously having lived in Spain, Italy, Brazil and the UAE. I have a passion for languages, and have studied French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and Beginner's Arabic. I gained a 2.1 from UCL in Modern Languages (Spanish and Italian).

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years experience tutoring Spanish, French and Italian and teaching children with both Autism and Dyslexia. I am happy to offer support with writing, listening, reading or speaking. I tutor both one-on-one and groups of up to 3 people.

Tutoring Approach:

With the exception of grammar explanations, all tutoring will be conducted in the language we are studying. We will be using all types of media: written exercises and activities, songs and films to help improve listening, reading and writing skills. Grammar will be revised every session and homework will be set. Tutoring can be tailored to personal requirements (i.e. extra help with written work vs. grammar) and work will only be set in accordance with what the student is currently learning at school so as not to overburden the student.

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 a qualified and experienced tutor, based in central Ipswich and I can tutor in students' homes or my home. I really enjoy tutoring as I find that my students make excellent progress which is very rewarding for me, too. Where required, I can provide references from previous students.

Teaching Experience:

I have 25 years' teaching experience (EFL/ESL, German and French) across all levels in colleges, local schools and as a private tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

My greatest strength is my ability to tailor my lessons to match students' exact linguistic needs - whether that means focussing on grammar, speaking ability, exam preparation or a combination of any of these for those who are learning for work and/or leisure purposes.

Personal Description:
I came to London in 2005 and I live in Walthamstow,London. I have always liked Art and Foreign Languages. I am passionate about Art and Crafts, and I have discovered my enthusiasm for French language when I started tutoring French a few years back. I work in a secondary school teaching Art and French and my colleagues and students would describe me as friendly, approachable with a good sense of humour.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Art and Design for four years prior to working as a learning support for 6 years. I have been working as a learning support, with Lead role in Literacy and I have worked as a Cover Supervisor for two years .I believe that teaching is not only about passing on the knowledge of a subject, it is also about connecting with the students to try and make them work to the best of their abilities. I have also tutored French in a private tutoring centre to students who have never learnt French before and within 2 and a half years, I have put them through their GCSE exams and they have got amazing results from A* - B. I have also been tutoring French at home for a few years and again my students came out with great results. I am fully aware of the curriculum and have experience in Writing, Speaking , Listening and the criteria for Controlled Assessment. References can be available on request.
I also run Art and Crafts workshop online and at home. I can teach a range of crafts such as stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking including various techniques. A sample of my crafts tutoring can be available on requests.
I am currently working as a full time Art and French teacher in a secondary school. With all the changes in the curriculum, it is fundamental that tutoring Art or French, are tailored to each individual to enable them to progress in each lesson so each pupil can reach their full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my lesson plans according to each individual as I believe that every student's learning is different. It is important for me to be able to communicate with my students, to understand their needs and to plan an Individual Educational Plan (IEP)to accommodate the requirements of each pupil. Resources are provided to reinforce learner's knowledge and homework is set weekly. Tests are held regularly to assess student's progress. Furthermore, I believe that regular contact with parents help ensure that student's targets are met accordingly.
PS: I have a CRB as I work in a Mainstream Secondary School. Reference from my current school or previous school can be available on request.

Personal Description:
I began at the University of Virginia in 2014 and have now returned home to England for the summer! I WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM THE BEGINNING OF JULY TO THE 19TH OF AUGUST. I completed my A levels in 2013 and am currently studying towards a double major in Foreign Affairs and Psychology. I'm a fun, hard working and energetic character whose always had a passion for working with children.

Because I`ve recently finished school I am very familiar with how the exam system runs, and know where the 'crunch' times will occur. As I am at university in America currently, I have completed the SATs multiple times so can help teach time management as I myself had to struggle to stay on top of 13 applications and extra essays!

I want to help kids create effective and fun ways to revise so that they can overcome the stress of everyday work loads and exams.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored many different children on a weekly basis since 2013. Their ages range from 8-14 and at the moment I teach French, maths, English and verbal skills. I've been able to see a huge improvement with the kids that I worked with and I love getting to know each of them and build a relationship of trust and fun!

I have worked with children with disabilities for 4 years now, including those with autism and other mental challenges, to those with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy. Working with children will not be difficult for me as I have also casually tutored friends on areas of work they found particularly hard, as well as helped them create work plans so they could stay on top of their studies. In addition, I have been selected to be an academic advisor to students entering their first years of university.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the most important part of being a tutor is helping the child find an effective strategy to deal with their work load. Whether that means using flash cards, creating mnemonics or testing, I want to make the process as fun as possible. In addition, I think helping anyone with their general work load will mean aiding them in creating usable structures and easy step plans so a 5 page essay can be managed in small bitesize sections. Learning time management is also equally important, so I would emphasise this too in my teaching.

I like to keep the lessons as fun and interesting as possible. Of course, work still needs to be done, but I don't like being forceful or strict. I want a child to be able to see me as someone to look up to and look forward to our lessons, rather than dread them!

Extra work is up to the child/parents, I'm happy to set prep so long as it isn't getting in the way of the child's other studies.

Personal Description:
Communication, cooperation and commitment are my key values. I know the importance of being assertive and helpful while providing French and Spanish tuition.
Empathy and a cheerful personality are my bridges to treating language learners with respect. It allows me to have a positive impact on them and see situations from different angles.

Teaching Experience:

During my teaching experience, I have learned how to establish and maintain constructive relationships during lessons, school hours, regular meetings and parents' evenings.
My past experience as a French language assistant and supply teacher allows me to quickly adapt to changes of pace while providing differentiated support. I am therefore used to constantly keeping review and updating records of learners' attendance and attitude. Therefore, a continual assessment of students' learning allows me to set them appropriate targets. So in parallel to the lessons I teach, I monitor their achievement to give them constant appropriate feedback.

Tutoring Approach:

Keeping a high quality of work is one of my other assets. To do so, I make sure I constantly review my lesson planning and assessment processes. I make constant use of my creativity, and provide solutions when improvements are required prior to or during the lessons taught. I am always searching to undergo further training to add value to the lessons I teach.

Personal Description:
I am Spanish teacher living in London. I am really friendly, responsible and I will always love to learn as many languages as possible.

Teaching Experience:

I studied a degree on Translation and Interpreting so I have a good English and French. Two years ago, I ended my MA degree on Spanish language and culture which is mainly focused on teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

I have been an English assistant teacher in two Summer Camps for 4 to 6 year old children and also taught Spanish as a foreign language to Erasmus students coming to the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
I have also been personal tutor of many children between 5 and 15 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I really try to focus on a Communicative Method, I make sure grammar is learned but I do not focus on showing grammar as a separate subject which has to be learned by hard. I try to show real texts (news articles, stories, tales, etc) and once you are able to understand the vocabulary, you will notice how is grammar used in different contexts.
There is no sense of teaching a language without a real context, I try to avoid inventing sentences which have no meaning at all.

In case you wish to try different approaches, I have no inconvenience on adapting it to what you really want to do.

Personal Description:
I am a young, female primary school teacher in the Doncaster/Wakefield area. Aside from my enthusiasm for teaching and helping children to achieve, I am interested in academic areas including sociology and languages. I enjoy travel and reading. I have worked voluntarily as a teaching assistant and completed a degree in Sociology before training to be a teacher. I now work as a supply teacher at primary level and as a personal tutor to primary and secondary level children. I hold an enhanced DBS check dated September 2015.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified primary school teacher who has taught classes of all ages at primary level. As a supply teacher, I have worked in many different schools and, as such, I develop positive relationships very quickly with both children and adults. I enjoy working with individuals and small groups in academic tasks and find that children are very responsive to this lower teacher-pupil ratio. I have found that working in these situations really helps to boost children's concentration and confidence in their work. They also feel more comfortable to ask questions in areas they find difficult. When tutoring, I am to create a positive, friendly and professional relationship where children feel comfortable with what they are learning, but also feel they can ask for help when required.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that children learn in many different ways - some by seeing and visualising, some by talking and discussing, and some by doing a physical or mental activity. I aim to tutor children using the learning style that best suits them. In a classroom, it is often difficult to meet the needs of every child. Personal tuition provides children with valuable one-to-one time, where the focus is on them and them alone. I believe that personal tuition does much to increase achievement in those weaker areas, but also serves to challenge and develop knowledge in stronger areas. Following a free initial consultation, I provide personalised programmes of study tailored exactly to meet the needs of the child involved. I am passionate about helping children to reach their full potential and will do all I can to make this happen. Sessions take place in the child's own home and are arranged on a flexible basis with parent or guardian. I can provide tuition from 30 minutes per week to more intensive programmes consisting of several hours per week in the school holidays.

I currently have slots available on weekday evenings and am available most Saturday mornings and early afternoon. I am not available on Sundays.
