Personal Description:
I am a French native from near Dijon in Burgundy, I am married to a Scott and we have two children. We live between Nottingham (UK) and Breil-sur Roya ( Alpes-Maritimes-France).I obtained a UK diploma to teach 16+ and adults and have been offering Business training then French language teaching for 20 years.

Teaching Experience:

Following my UK qualification I have been teaching French language at New College Nottingham (leading to O.C.N. & E.M.F.C. qualifications), People's College (leading to A.B.C. & O.C.N. qualification), Business French (at company places: Capital One, Imperial Tobacco, Boots, H.M. Inspector of Railways, Experian, Antalis, JetPress) & privately, especially for family relocation to France. I offer tuition for:
-French GCSE, A level, University degree & teacher training tutorials.
-French for leisure including buying a house in France and relocation to this country.
-French for immigration to Canada (TEFQ).
-Preparation to Business French qualifications (TEF-DELF-DALF) from Paris' Chamber of Commerce and to the International MBA School at Fontainebleau (ENSIAD) .
-Business French teaching prior to live and create a business in France.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe that Learning occurs favorably when self-actualisation is in place. Consequently my initial approach is motivating the Learner to create his/her Learning plan with well defined & achievable goals. Reward to gain confidence is also an essencial part of my Teaching & I always explain that an "error" is not a bad thing but an important Learning Tool.
Thanks to the Internet, I am able to accurately tailor my Tutoring to specific needs with daily up-dated information. This is one of my Unique Teaching Strength.
So, if you agree with me, you are Welcome!

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old qualified teacher, who is enthusiatic about all areas of the curriculum and supporting children in their learning journey.
I have a particular interest in languages and Literacy, and enjoy a rewarding job as a classroom teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in the classroom for seven years. I have had a variety of posts, teaching many children from different backgrounds and with different learning styles.
I have experience teaching children from five to eleven, and I also work with children up to Year eight in my current post.
I am the Learning Support Co-ordinator at my place of work as well as Year One class teacher, which enables me to have a greater insight into different learning and teaching styles, and support the learning of a diverse range of children.

Tutoring Approach:

I will direct each session towards a clear learning objective, and plan various activities to support and consolidate this. I believe that every child has uniques learning styles, and I will endeavour to plan sessions to appeal to these. Children learn best when they are fully enaged, and I will plan sessions to appeal to any strengths or particular interests of each child.
I will build a good working relationship with each student, as children work best when they are comfortable in a situation.
I hope that the pupils I support will have great enjoyment and success as a result of receiving tuition from me.

Personal Description:
I am an Open University graduate having completed an BA(Hons) degree. I chose my own programme of study which consisted of French,English Language Studies with GCSE/Standard grade Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. After my degree, I undertook an A-level/Higher Grade Maths course and GCSE/Standard Grade level Latin course to keep my study skills fresh and updated whilst complimenting my degree.

Prior to this, I under went a City and Guilds in Delivering Learning which taught me the vital skills required to be able to plan and construct lessons. In conjunction to this, I have also achieved my Level 1 certificate in British Sign Language.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently hired by Borders College based in Galashiels where I teach adult evening classes in Mandarin Chinese and French, which I love. Seeing my students grow and learn is one of the main reasons why I entered the tutoring and teaching profession. In conjunction with my college role, I also privately teach British Sign Language and Latin

In addition, I have taught French to various ages ranging from Primary right through to Adult in various capacities.Furthermore, I have taught English as a Foreign Language which was a brilliant experience as it gave me a valuable insight into how people learn not only English but languages in general.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring comprises of friendliness and patience. Having studied at home for my degree, I understand the importance of a structured and warm learning environment. My motto has always been "There is no such thing as a stupid question". If you do not know the answer then the only way to find the answer out is to ask the question, whether it is for the first or tenth time. As I am so passionate about French and English along with reading and writing skills, I feel that lessons with me will be a positive, exciting and worthwhile experience.

I have always strongly believed that education is available to everyone, regardless of past experiences. The only thing that I feel matters when it comes to learning is a want to learn, if you have that then anything is possible.

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen
Listen and Learn
Aberdeen Language School
Free-lance

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Personal Description:
I am 54 years old, I am married with four children. I have a degree ( Joint Honours, 2.1 in Agriculture with Agricultural Economics) and a Cert Ed. I am a member of the Institute for Learning. I have taught a wide range of subjects over 28 years and am able to coach you to success whether you are looking for science, geography, Excel spreadsheets, English as a Foreign Language or even French and German ( I worked in both countries when I was younger)

Teaching Experience:

I can help you prepare for exams in Geography, Biology, Ecology, French and German. I have taught English as a Foreign Language over many years. I can also help you with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, particularly for Business. I am a patient, enthusiastic and committed teacher with 28 years experience particularly with post 16 and adult education. I have taught agriculture and related topics over that time, and very much enjoyed diversifying my teaching portfolio as new courses arose at the college. I have taught a range of biology and geography related topics, including plant and soil science, crop science, crop production, livestock production, environmental issues, ecology, woodland management. In business I have helped many people develop diverse enterprises, preparing carefully costed cash flow projections. I very much enjoy seeing people develop confidence with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, which are an invaluable tool.

Tutoring Approach:

I am convinced that one-to-one tuition is by far the most efficient way in which a person can progress and gain confidence. Often someone can grasp a topic in 5 minutes of one-to-one that would have taken 2 hours to cover with a larger group. Once you are confident with a topic, we move on rapidly to the next one. A current A level tutee of mine told his father "I learnt more in that 2 hour session than I have all term at school" and his headteacher wrote to congratulate him on his improved grades. (The reason for this is not that his teacher is bad, far from it, but a tutor can give you personal one-to-one attention, concentrating on the bits you need) I always ensure that the learners are confident with each step before progressing further.

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge graduate and have been a qualified teacher of languages (French and German) and English as an Additional Language for four years, working in secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I enjoy working with all age groups from primary children to GCSE, A Level and degree level. I also spent a year working for a translation company specialising in business and financial translations and continue to do so on a freelance basis.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE at the University of Birmingham in 2009 and have been teaching for the last 4 years at secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I have taught French and German to all secondary age groups from years 7 to 13, including a number of GCSE and A Level groups. I have good knowledge of examination requirements, including GCSE controlled assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is tailored to the needs of the individual student. Generally, I try to create a balance between the different language skills such as writing and speaking, as well as including vocabulary and grammar work. With exam students in particular, I focus on the syllabus requirements including preparation for the controlled assessment tasks at GCSE and the A Level speaking exams. I also work on exam skills and techniques for listening, reading and memorisation. An important part of my work is boosting students' confident and making lessons enjoyable as well as productive.

I am a French/Italian 22 years old young man, who lived in France, Italy and England. I have finished a Master of Physics at the university of Central Lancashire and I am currently doing an internship at the European Space Agency, where I work on mathematical models that I develop.
I will be starting (September 2013) a MSc (Master of Science) in Modern Applications of Mathematics at the university of Bath.

On the other hand I also worked as a technical translator (French to English - Italian to English) for Transcription Global and NitroPDF..

Teaching Experience:

I have experience as a private tutor in Maths, Physics, French and Italian. I have worked both in France and England, where the teaching methods sometimes differ, which is an advantage for me, as I know different ways to teach the same concepts.

Tutoring Approach:

I love studying as much as I like teaching/tutoring. I believe that everybody can understand everything, as long as the person enjoys what you are teaching him/her. Passion is what has always led me so far: I think I am capable to transmit this passion.
Moreover I am very patient; I started helping my little brother in Mathematics, who is now studying fine arts and hence did not have much interest for this course. However he managed to have very good grades thanks to me.
I have a lot of experience with young people of all age, as I have been a boy Scout and a chief Scout.
Therefore I know how to adapt my teaching approach to each individual person I have to work with.

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 an energetic, bubbly and friendly person who is passionate about languages. In my spare time I enjoy going to the theatre and visiting exhibitions. I also swim regularly and play badminton. Having spent most of my life living and studying abroad I love to travel and am fascinated by different languages and cultures.

I am a very family orientated person and always make time for my little niece and regularly babysit for friends and neighbours.

Teaching Experience:

While doing my A-Levels in the UK I assisted the German teacher with the GCSE classes at my school and also gave private tuition to some of the students.

I have spent 6 months in Honduras teaching English as a Foreign Language to children from the ages of 5-15 and worked as an English teacher in the public and private sector in France teaching pupils aged 10 to adult.

Recently I have helped GCSE students with the preparation for their oral exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a fun approach to teaching and feel that variety is important. When learning a language all aspects need to be worked on i.e. reading, writing, listening and speaking through different exercises. I am friendly and always like to have a thorough talk with a pupil before starting any lessons to understand what their weaknesses and strengths are and what they may/ may not enjoy.

Personal Description:
I teach languages at Secondary level (11 - 18) and am also an exam marker for AQA. I am passionate about all things French and enjoy inspiring students to feel the same enthusiasm. Having lived and worked in France for several years, I know that there is nothing to compare with the satisfaction of being able to make yourself understood, and eventually to have conversations and build friendships, with people of different nationalities.
To learn a foreign language really is to see the world in a whole new light!

Teaching Experience:

As well as eight years' experience of teaching languages in Secondary schools, I have extensive experience of tutoring a range of ages individually. My students have a track record of success and many former pupils have gone on to study Languages at University, including at Oxbridge.
I am used to working with young people of all abilities and confidence levels and know that the best learning happens in a supportive environment.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student needs a unique approach and we can work together to agree where the focus needs to be: whether building confidence with speaking, working on accent and intonation, perfecting tenses and grammar, fine tuning Controlled Assessments or essays, developing strategies for successful listening and reading - or a combination of these.

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated with Merit in MSc Sport Management from Coventry University. I am French and I offer to my students a different approach to the French Language as well as learning of the Francophone cultures. I am serious, motivated and I have experience in tutoring. I am available everyday and weekends.

Teaching Experience:

Last year, I worked during 5 months as a French Language assistant at Bangor University. My role was to improve oral and aural skills of the students, while broadening their understanding of French and Francophone cultures. I have led the different classes by myself and reported regularly my work to the Head of the French section. I had to be proactive and creative, as I have to prepare each class with different exercises as well as being responsible and meeting deadlines following the programme of the students.

Tutoring Approach:

My purpose as a tutor is to allow to my students to be confident when they speak French. It is not easy to learn a new language or even if you have some basics of the language sometimes you are afraid to talk because you think you will make mistakes. It is normal to make mistakes. I have learnt English as a second language so I know exactly how someone who learns a new language can feel as well as what is the best ways to learn it. The most important thing is that the learning has to be entertaining. It is the easiest way to keep the vocabulary in mind and allow to the person to be confident. Videos, movies, one to one conversation lessons about all kind of subjects are as important as translations and grammar exercises.

Personal Description:
Postgraduate Student.

I am a twenty-one year old postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and understand the tricky bits of their material which is escaping their understanding. I am a Canadian studying abroad here in Glasgow and therefore do not have GCSEs or A levels, but I have the equivalent levels from Canadian institutions with top marks. I tutor best in history, my chosen subject, English or French as a second language, and maths, which I not only did well in during secondary school, but all of which I have also studied at the University level. I get along very well with students of all ages and try to make the tutoring experience a fun an interesting one for any student.

Teaching Experience:

Tutoring 1 on 1
ESL teaching (Group sizes from 5-12)
Age range of experience: 7-18 year olds

I have several years of teaching experience in different settings and with different age groups. I've taught English as a Second Language in a camp setting which ran lessons similar to classroom lessons every morning. I had to design my own approaches to various topics which gave me a lot of practice in making studying and learning interesting and easier for children who were less interested or struggling. I also tutored on a private basis for primary school-aged children through the medium of French and English in reading and writing skills as well as the general subjects at that age. I have tutored at the secondary school level in Maths, English, French, Sciences, and History. I have also been a teaching assistant at the University level for both Irish and Scottish Gaelic second language courses as well as a general Celtic World knowledge course.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be fun.
Aim is to help student learn how they understand instruction so that they are more confident in their own abilities and can perform better in the future.
Use past work to improve on future work.

Learning should be fun and I strive to make the tutoring experience less about school work and more about understanding the ways in which what is being taught is of interest to the student. Finding ways to improve the student's understanding and learning experience sometimes means approaching the material in a different way than is being taught in class. Teachers understand that not all student learn the same way but cannot always deliver their teaching in all these ways. By helping the student understand the material first and then explaining the method the teacher used to explain it first allows the student to reach their full potential, understand the material, and go back to class with a better chance following the teacher's instruction.

All of this is done in a light-mannered way that does not make the child feel as though tutoring is a punishment for not understanding in class, but rather, a (sometimes lengthy) temporary situation until the student becomes more confident about his or her own skills!

Using the student's own work is an important tool for helping them recognize their own areas of difficulty and should be used again as mock exams to help the student see tangible proof of their improvements. The best understanding of any subject comes from watching it being done/having it explained, doing it oneself, and then teaching it in turn.
