Personal Description:
I am 38 years old. I like being a teacher and I get true enjoyment from sharing my knowledge and skills with new learners, making them realize how easy learning can be and how much actually they do know already. I like helping young people enjoy learning and making learning easy for them. I am patient and adaptable and easy to talk to. I always discuss the needs of my new pupils very carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject. As an Examiner with a well-known Board, I am able to help my students to maximise their potential using targeted revision and exam techniques.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for 12 years. I have always wanted to be a teacher. I have worked in several schools now, gaining experience from working with a variety of learners of various ages and learning styles. I have worked within the requirements of more than one examing board, therefore I am quite familiar with all exam formats. I have been a tutor also for 10 years with very good results. Students do like me within first session, gaining confidence and self reassurance that they are capable of a lot already. Only some issues need re-addressing, building on their prior knowledge.

Tutoring Approach:

Within the first session, I discover the individual needs of my learners, their strengths and weaknesses. Then I devise a plan to address the whole programme of study within the number of weeks available, so no topic is ignored. I work simultaneously on exam requirements, but also on skill development, skills that the student can benefit from, outside the boundaries of a specific exam format. Students find themselves forgetting the time, often engrossed in their work, mentally challenged and stimulated. I set short homework at times, so that students can practise independently on those skills they develop with me, being reassured that they can transfer those skills further. I do provide learning materials which I do personalize for each student.

Personal Description:
I've recently qualified as a secondary science teacher with psychology from the University of Exeter. I now work in a secondary college in London teaching science, maths and psychology. I previously graduated from the University of Leeds with a Bsc in psychology.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified secondary teacher. I have spent a year teaching primary english in France. I have taught karate and tennis to children. I have volunteered at an after school programme in Leeds teaching basic numercay and literacy. I was also a mentor for first year students when in my final year at university.

Tutoring Approach:

I do not have a set approach. I will tailor my tutoring around the tutees needs as I am aware everyone learns differently. Some people learn better from visual explantions therefore in this situation if I was teaching for example photosynthesis, I would perhaps use a plant, some water, a lamp to demonstrate this process simply.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher with a solid academic background and sound subject knowledge. I hold an MA in Modern Languages and Linguistics and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Oxford University. I have worked in the education sector since graduating in 2003 and for the last three years I have been solely self-employed as a private tutor whilst I bring up my young family. I work from my home in Tewkesbury where I provide students with a comfortable learning environment where they are free to study at their own pace in a non-intimidating setting. I am occasionally able to offer sessions at a tutee's house.

I offer one-to-one tuition in a range of subjects and also run small classes for 11+ tuition and adult French lessons.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years of experience as a private tutor, supporting students in a range of subjects and at a range of levels. My main experience is in preparing pupils for 11+ grammar school entrance and 11+ or 13+ common entrance and scholarship entrance exams for independent schools. I can provide support in all the required subjects, particularly English, Mathematics, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning, French, History, Geography and Religious Studies.

I have also tutored students at GCSE level and have worked with students on a range of subjects, including English, Mathematics, French and Geography.

I also teach foreign languages to adult learners, teaching French in the UK and having taught English as a foreign language when I lived in France. I am happy to help devise a tailor-made course depending on the needs of the individual be it for conversational/tourist language or more advanced or business usage.

I am also able to support sixth formers with university applications and interviews, particularly for arts subjects and Oxbridge.

In my last school teaching post, I was employed as Head of French at a large independent preparatory school in central London. I have five years of full time experience in schools, teaching French, German and English as a Foreign Language.

Personal Description:
I am a 3rd year Politics student at The University of York. As Politics itself is interdisciplinary, I feel I have a wealth of experience and expertise to offer any prospective students. I hold 8 GCSEs at A/A* grade, including all of the subjects I have offer to tutor, as well as A grades at A-Level in two of them.

Teaching Experience:

As part of Churchill House, School of English Language's Summer learning scheme, I have spent two residential stints in successive summers at a Derbyshire boarding school, assisting foreign students both in and out of class. I have worked with children between the age of 11 and 18.

During my sixth form years, I was a language coach for Key Stage 3 students at my school in French and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

Students should think aloud and use me as a sounding board. Essays should be spoken before they are written.
I believe in structuring arguments and tackling a problem one step at a time, something often rushed through in the exam. Quality will always outweigh quantity and the student should be reminded of this. I try to contextualize any of the points I make to a student, perhaps likening it to something they are already interested in. The student should stop thinking in terms of assessment and start to consider the application of the subject in the real world - this often leads to a greater enthusiasm. Analogies and acronyms are key to remembering important facts and figures. I do honor mark schemes and they will of course form the bedrock of my teaching, but in order to truly make the student better at the subject, I feel this is something that should be transcended. A pass is not enough. An A grade is my aim for my students.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable 25 year old Veterinary Surgeon, currently living in Liverpool and undertaking further training in order to become a European Specialist in Veterinary Dentistry. I also have a Masters Degree in Physiology from Cambridge University. I am passionate about Maths and the Sciences, and feel very fortunate to have a job where I use them on a daily basis. I love teaching students, particularly when I can aid understanding and recall by putting the information in their course into a real life context. Outside of work I am a keen footballer and Liverpool fan, and also enjoy playing rugby and cricket and reading French Literature.

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 of years teaching experience at Cambridge University, where I taught one to one/small group tutorials and practical classes, and also marked and assisted students with course work and dissertations. I also have experience working with younger people through coaching cricket, conducting mock interviews for Vet School and assisting with extra Maths teaching for primary school children.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that the main benefit of private tuition is that it can be tailored to an individual. I therefore take a flexible, pupil-centric approach to tutoring, ensuring I cover any areas in which the student feels they would like more help. I am also happy to provide an overview of the course, focussing on core topics and those which frequently come up in exams if required. I like to work systematically and ensure that the student is completely happy with a topic before moving on to the next - some of the concepts we have to cover can be very tricky and I try to make it clear to my students that if there's anything at all that they're not sure about, I'll be happy to go through it for as long as we need to before they understand the subject.

Personal Description:
Hi,
I am a nice 24 years guy. I live in Islington in London and I am freshly graduated with a Master of Engineering Management from Nottingham Trent University. I work since recently for a company in the city. I come from the French part of Belgium so my mother tongue is French.

Teaching Experience:

I've got a teaching experience of about 2 to 3 years in giving one-to-one lessons in science, maths, computing and since I am in the UK (1 year ago): French. Back in Belgium, I used to work as a part-time job for a company (MySherpa) that provides tutorials to help students coping with their exams and coursework.

Tutoring Approach:

As far as my method is concerned, the first thing I do is getting to know my student and understand what he expects from the tutorial. From there, we establish a planning to reach the objectives. I provide also support by email that is included in the price I charge for my tutorials.

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

Teaching Experience:

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

Tutoring Approach:

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

Personal Description:
As far as I can remember, I've always liked learning new things and teaching and considered it as fundamental. I'm really interested in different cultures, languages and ways of thinking. I'm French and I've been living in England for more than 9 months. I like meeting new people and having fun while teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I've been a tutor for a few years in France, teaching English and French to high school and secondary school students. Their results improved and they were pretty happy with my methods and ressources. Since October I've been working as a French assistant for the Kings School in Macclesfield with students from Year 1 to Year 13 and I'll be back in September for another year.

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience, I've found that students appreciate learning languages with loads of different material like music, games, films, books, videos and the internet platform in general. I think tutoring has to be interesting and entertaining as well as efficient. I try to be funny, joyful but focused at the same time. And if the tutee is motivated, then there will be no boundaries.

Personal Description:
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:
Hello!

My name is Jennifer and I moved to the UK 3 years ago. I am originally Spanish and speak the language fluently, but because I was born and did my education in Geneva (French speaking part of Switzerland), French is also a mother tongue to me.

I would like to use my knowledge and spare time to help others discover and learn new languages. I am dynamic and have a bubbly personality and when it comes to work I am attentive, meticulous and organized. I always commit to do my best in every situation because my education taught me that achievement was synonymous with intense and hard work.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring in the UK since July 2013. I currently help with both Spanish and French. I have 13 students at the moment, all with different needs and goals.

When I was in Switzerland, I had a year of teaching/tutoring experience in the following areas:

-After graduating from High School, I registered with the Department of Public Education in Geneva in order to be a substitute teacher in primary schools. I have then been called many times to cover when teachers were absent, for periods of two days a week most of the time.

-At the same time, I joined the Association of the Ajeta Tutorings to help pupils at home with their school difficulties and homework. During my time there, I had three pupils on a regular basis that I helped with French, Maths and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and bubbly person and will always to my best to make the tutee feel at ease. I would first see the level the tutee is at before proceeding to an adequate approach and discuss the goals to achieve.

I am the mother of 3 children, all of whom studied a language at A level and one of which has a languages' degree.

Teaching Experience:

I have been Head of Modern Languages for 8 years and have just reduced my workload to 2 days per week. I am a very experienced A level teacher of both French and German and have worked as a private tutor before at this level. I am responsible for Oxbridge applications and references in my school.
I shall also be working as an examiner for one of the examination boards; an occupation that I fulfilled for many years, when my own children were young.

Tutoring Approach:

I will need to diagnose the needs of the student in the first session and work on perceived weaknesses thereafter. My aim is to breed confidence and precision.
I have proved myself to be very successful at promoting oral skills, whilst also being known as 'the grammar nazi' by my 6th form students.

Personal Description:
My name is Shadi, I am French native speaker and I live in West London (Barons Court) for 3 years now.
My colleagues say I am a very communicative person, hard worker and perfectionist. I have a cosmopolitan culture which helps me to be open-minded and very approachable by my students. I have worked as a Marketing Manager for over 10 years in Paris but my deep passion has always been teaching languages. I have realised my dream relocating to London.

In addition to French I am also fully fluent in Italian where I have lived and worked for over 3 years. My passion for Italian Culture and Language has no limits.

Moreover I am well organised, punctual reliable and specially enthusiastic with a fun and approachable teaching manner with my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have started to teach to adults in private and corporate trainings for over a year for big companies in the City of London (both Italian and French). Some of my group adult students switched to private lessons and I still teach them all the ways to improve not only their language level but also their knowledge of the culture and the country of the language they learn.

I have travelled a lot for professional and personal purposes and I have a very easy ability to communicate. Even if I have not taught for many years my knowledge and working experience has given me enough confidence to adapt myself very quickly and easily in the languages I know.

I am able to teach French and Italian at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I have had the opportunity to teach in London in corporate trainings to adults at a very demanding level. Needs were not the same, some wanted learn for pleasure others wanted to learn for professional purposes in order to catch new opportunities of work.
Feedbacks has demonstrated that I was not only adaptable, but also good listener and approachable. This is how I believe teaching has to focus on.

There are no secrets, enjoy what you do and you will learn it faster is my credo

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. My name is John. I graduated from Sheffield University in the 1970s where I studied French and German. It was while teaching in a lycee in South West France as part of my course that I really developed a love of language and foreign travel. I subsequently went on to Liverpool University where I obtained a postgraduate teaching qualification. My teaching career extended over a number of years in a variety of schools in the public and private sector, including a spell as head of languages. In 2002 I studied to teach English as a foreign language. I was surprised to discover that teaching my native language in all its complexities gave me a valuable insight into teaching other languages, not just my own.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned the majority of my teaching lay in mainstream education, where exam preparation was of great importance. In addition, I have enjoyed teaching adults at evening and day classes. I currently teach English as a foreign language to home-stay visitors, but my main efforts are concentrated on private tuition to school children or adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Language learning can be easy, as long as it is varied and well structured. My basic method involves firstly presenting to the student the required vocabulary and grammatical structures, and then familiarizing him or her with them; this can be achieved through verbal drills, short exercises, word games etc. Once they are reasonably well acquired, they are put into a more practical context, imitating as far as possible real life situations e.g. 'asking directions in the street'.For this I use role play, sometimes involving what is called 'information gap', where the student must find out some practical piece of information solely by using the foreign language involved. Many students come to me because, simply put, they have lost the plot! Either they have experienced poor teaching or, for whatever reason, they have become de-motivated. In this case I would spend additional time practising verb formations etc - it is often grammatical structures which have fallen by the wayside.
My overall approach is friendly, but with high expectations. New tutees receive the first lesson free of charge, so that an assessment can be made as to the teaching required.

Personal Description:
Having lived in France for 6 years, I am passionate about France and the French language and enjoy helping others to appreciate it as much as me. This led me to train as a High School French teacher, and I love my job!

Teaching Experience:

I have been qualified and working in Scottish schools since 2008. I completed both my PGDE and BA Hons in French and English at the University of Strathclyde. I worked for several years as a Deputy-Housemistress in a boarding school, and currently teach full-time and work in a boarding house as a Tutor. I teach pupils from Primary 7 to S6 and am solely responsible for preparing them for National 4 and 5 as well as Higher French. I have also worked in 2 Primary schools in France for 1 year, as a Foreign Language Assistant and am comfortable working with a range of age groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I like tutees to feel comfortable working with me, and encourage them to ask questions and communicate, therefore I promote a positive and relaxed learning environment. I have experience of working with a range of abilities, and strive to get the best possible out of each tutee. I build confidence and skill using a range of resources and techniques, and tailor every tutoring session to match with a tutee's personal aims and requirements. I keep up to date with current developments in education through preparing my classes for their exams and through developing Curriculum for Excellence materials and this is experience which benefits my tutees.
