Personal Description:
Hello,
My name is Emma and I'm currently at law school in London training and studying to become a solicitor.
I am 21 years old but very hard working. I understand how hard studying can be but I am prepared to help whoever may need my help. My specialist areas are business studies as that was my undergraduate degree, French and Maths.
I am very approachable, patient woman and have lots of fun and challenging learning techniques to help your child tackle those harder problems at school.
I am based in Guildford in Surrey so I can come to your house as I can drive. Before we start tutoring I like to have a little discussion with you and your child in order to establish which learning techniques will best suit your child as well as learn a little bit about you and give you time to learn about me.

Teaching Experience:

This will be my first tutoring job on a one on one basis; however I've taught English in Tanzania when I went lived there and have taught larger classes in England.
I am a very studious woman and love to study. At university I coached two sports teams, four times a week so I understand the commitment and dedication that is required to teach. I also mentored new international students at university helping them settle into their new lives at university and to help with any course problems they had so I have developed good communication techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very patient when I teach as I understand that not everyone will understand something the first time they hear it. I personally am a visual learner. By this I mean flashcards, coloured pens and any way that I find that visually I will be able to remember a concept. For example, when I was learning the countries in French, I created a world map and had the countries in French on a card and then would stick them on the map where I thought the French word matched the country and I also did the same for the human body. I am very happy to use these tools to help your child learn and it also helps to make the session fun!

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Emma

Thanks for reading my profile and I would love to have the opportunity to help you improve your French.

I am a very motivated and organised person who has spent a lot of time in France and consequently I have a good level of French pronunciation. I enjoy teaching on an individual basis as well as to groups of children or adults who all share the same goal to learn or improve French!!

I am a 41 year old mum of two boys (6 & 12yrs) and I am able to empathise with different approaches t o learning as required to suit the student. Sometimes, a more light-hearted approach may be needed to re-ignite the interest in learning a language and my experience in teaching children of various abilities at KS2 level enables me to do this with ease.

Teaching Experience:

For the last 7 years, I have been teaching French at several different primary schools (KS2) in Chester during curriculum time.

I have also been running my own successful lunchtime and after-school clubs as I am the Chester Licensee for Le Club Francais and El Club Espanol. These clubs cater for children 3-11years old.

At GCSE level, I have successfully raised the grades of many students and have a good knowledge of the AQA examination syllabus. I can offer assistance in the written assignments and can offer invaluable assistance in the preparation for oral examinations. I have a good understanding of French grammar which is an area I find many students struggle to understand.

At an adult level, I have taught complete beginners through to business people who need/want to learn or improve their French to assist with moving abroad. I find teaching adults to be especially enjoyable due to the enthusiasm shown which leads to fast results.

Tutoring Approach:

At our first meeting, I will assess your level and find out which areas in the French language (written, spoken, listening, reading) you find particularly challenging or especially want to improve in. I will also discuss with you ways that you particularly like to learn and the timescale you envisage our sessions to run for.

I am open and flexible in my approach and will make the sessions enjoyable for you. I will tailor my lessons each week according to your needs and prepare additional (home)work if requested to ensure continuity in our learning.

I hope I have shared with you enough information about my wide experience in teaching French at all levels to encourage you to contact me. I am passionate about learning French and would really like to share it with you too!

Personal Description:
I am a native French speaker and I recently graduated in Mechanical Engineering. I have always been passionate about Maths and Physics. I like to share my passion with people, especially those whom I can help, and make these subjects accessible to all. I also love promoting my language in as many ways as I can.
I understand that it is very important to tailor learning to individual needs and I adapt myself to any situation.

Teaching Experience:

I have been giving casual tuition at secondary school level as well as University level to friends and family. I also explained Maths and Mechanics to university fellow students and friends when they needed help to understand topics I had mastered.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to find interesting ways to explain when the student is confronted to a problem he cannot solve. I make a point of leading my students to their goal while setting good working standards. I like to transmit my dedication to my pupils.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am a French native living in the UK for two years while I have been improving my English a lot which is very helpful for me to explain French language to complete beginners. I am enjoying my new life in London.

I am educated to a Masters Degree in Business Law in France and I've discovered here in the UK an interest in teaching while taking a temporary French teaching job opportunity which finally became permanent.

I started teaching French as a private Tutor in Essex and I really enjoyed it so I would like to carry on in this direction.

My students usually describe me as friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and dedicated (the school regularly collect students' opinions through anonymous surveys).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor in France in various subjects like Maths, English, Spanish, and help to general homework.
In the UK, I have been a private tutor in French for over a year. I first had a couple of students who were two brothers aged 12 and 13 years.
Since January 2013 I have had quite a number of private students through Tutor UK and most of them are still currently learning French with me.
I have been teaching French for a private Languages School for almost a year now and have gained an amazing experience in teaching. I am really enjoying sharing my knowledge and see my students improving, asking useful questions, and having fun after all, speaking a new language as if they had always known it.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to Tutoring is very adapted to each student as this is the main point of a private tuition.
After assessing my student's level and setting their goals whether they would like to improve certain skills (eg. accentuating speaking, or listening, or grammar..) or to learn from the beginning.

I provide grammar rules and methods, using a lot of examples and vocabulary. I give my students exercises to practise and make sure they understand the grammar part which is important for understanding the language and how to use it. I try to vary exercises between pronunciation, sentences construction, reading and writing for beginners and improvers, including more conversations for improvers and advanced students.

I believe there is no secret, to learn or improve a language, practising is the key.


NB : Prices advertised on the subjects section correspond to £15/1hour/1person, couple or small group tuition available at very competitive price. Please note that £5 extra per session may be charged upon mutual agreement if travel costs me more than £5/return OR lasts more than 1hour/1way.

Personal Description:
I am a 22 year old who is currently working at RWS translations group in Chalfont St Peter. I have recently graduated from Durham University with a 2.1 BA in Modern Languages (French and Italian). I also studied Spanish up to 2nd year. I enjoy speaking different languages and try to pass on my enthusiasm for languages to others.

Teaching Experience:

My third year at University was spent abroad. I chose to teach in France for 7 months in two primary schools which I very much enjoyed. I loved to chat to the children and try to get them to see the importance of learning English. I also au-paired for three months in Italy during my Year Abroad, which involved private lessons with a 7 year old. I have also previously tutored French, which included exam preparation, focusing on problematic areas and improving confidence. I understand how difficult languages can be, I believe I can sympathise with the student. The lesson must be fun and the student needs to understand the importance of learning a language, in order to be enthusiastic about it.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe languages are crucial in education. Throughout university I took part in Routes into Languages, a consortium of universities working together with schools and colleges, to enthuse and encourage people to study languages. This role involved planning taster classes for small groups, introducing a new language into their education and broadening their knowledge of the world and different cultures. I particularly enjoyed this role as I was enable to communicate the importance of languages and perhaps inspire some of the children to carry languages on past year 9.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Jessica and I am a recent graduate of Spanish from the University of Leeds. I am really passionate about learning languages and I am also have a good level in French and Catalan. I am most proficient in Spanish and as well as the 3 years of intensive study as part of my degree I have spent 2 years living in Spain where I learned a lot about the Spanish language and culture. While living in Spain, I not only achieved a good level of Spanish but also taught English as a Foreign language, gaining a lot of experience teaching a variety of levels and ages. I am interested in giving private tutoring sessions to anyone who wants to keep up their Spanish level during the school holidays or otherwise, and also people from non English speaking countries who would like to have English classes while in London!

Teaching Experience:

During my years living in Spain I worked as an English language assistant in various institutions, including a primary school, an adult technical college and a specialist language academy. I had responsibility for planning lessons and usually had full control of a classroom of students. I also had many private students of various ages, including teenagers and adults. This allowed me to experience teaching different levels and adapting to the needs of the individual students. I developed really good relationships with all of my students and I feel they all benefitted from my relaxed teaching style. I have had a few private students in Spanish while in London, though I feel that my experience of teaching English can be well applied to teaching Spanish too, particularly as I have received formal teaching in Spanish myself over many years.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is relaxed and fun. I feel that it is important for the student to enjoy learning, especially in extra classes taken during their spare time which could be in danger of feeling like a chore! I like to have some variety in my classes but also feel it is important to cater to the individual student. I like to get to know the student so as to make sure they are getting the most out of the classes doing what they want or need to do, whether it is concentrating on grammar, conversation or games that can help build the vocabulary. Depending on the student, the classes can be more structured or more relaxed but I always want to try and make them enjoyable! I felt that this approach got a great response from my private students in the past. At the end of the day, I want the student to be happy!

I am a French Erasmus student studying urbanism as a postgraduate at Queen's University. I would be happy to share my knowledge on France to other students.
I lived for a year in Germany as I was 16.
I play clarinette since I am 8 years old.

Teaching Experience:

Two years teaching french, history and geography to a 15-16 year old student
5 years helping with homework at a primary level
One year of teaching clarinet to a beginer.

Tutoring Approach:

The first session will be about understand what you want of our sessions and what is your level in French or German or music. From that level we will work toward the basics you miss or do not understand, and toward your homework or your school lessons if you have some. If you agree I will give you some homework (one small exercise about the subject of the day), so you can practice alone during the week. We also will have sessions about your assignments and essays to help you succeed at school.
For French tutoring, if you want, the cessions can also be made of discusisons about something interrest you, about live in France, or something else. It is also a nice and less scholar way to improve your language.
For music, you will have a small exercise to present for next week to be sure you remember what we did. We will not be able to get further on until you are able to do it correctly.

Personal Description:
I am a Spanish native speaker from the south of Spain and have been living in the UK for seven years now. I studied for a degree in Translation and Interpretation and for a couple of postgraduate masters, one relating to education.
I have always been interested in learning languages and the culture of the countries where they are spoken. Therefore you will have the chance to learn about Spanish daily habits, gastronomy, hobbies and important events that happen around the year.
It is key for me to know why you want to learn the language and which Spanish speaking country you are visiting, as the contents and language of the lessons will be oriented to these requirements. Your learning style and preferences are important to me as well. Some learners prefer to base their lessons around conversations only and others are happy to have a few grammar based lessons, then conversation, then enjoying reading a book passage or a poem. My extensive library of resources will always have something that interests you.

Teaching Experience:

Over 6 years teaching experience in the UK. This includes over 4 year secondary school work (first as a language assistant, then as a qualified MFL teacher).
Set up as self-employed in 2011 as a freelance adult educator and translator in the Spanish and French language. During this time I have delivered adult education for local education authorities as well as private courses, primary school clubs and one-to-one tuition. As part of my Professional Development Plan I completed a Teacher Training Course at the Instituto Cervantes in Leeds, a key reference institution for Spanish teachers around the world.
Testimonials of happy customers are available upon request.

Tutoring Approach:

Fun but professional!
Learning programme is tailored to your needs and additional materials for independent learning can be provided after lessons. Doing a bit of work at home helps making progress.
You can use to either follow a text book or allow me to cherry pick materials designed to help you achieve your course aims.
Flexible lesson times, you can have your lessons at a different time or day as we all have work and family commitments happening throughout the year. Just let me know well in advance please.
(Note: since you'll be charged a fee to obtain my tutoring details, the first lesson will be half price).

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.

Personal Description:
I am a 17 year old student, currently in Year 12 studying for my A-levels. I have completed my GCSEs last year - 9 A*s (Maths, English Language, English Literature, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Spanish, French, History) and 2 As (Additional Maths, Art)
I know the requirements of the Edexcel iGCSE syllabuses for Maths, French, Spanish and Russian and I am willing to adapt that knowledge to the requirements of other exam boards.

I am an outgoing and energetic person and have experience with children, as I have a weekend job at a children's riding school.

Teaching Experience:

Although I do not have any experience in private tutoring, I have been teaching young children how to horse ride for the past two years at a children's riding school (Aescwood Farm).

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring a child, I will try to find out their strengths and weaknesses, so I will be able to push them to the best of their ability. However, I will adapt a friendly and fun approach to teaching and I will also try to find out the preferred manner of learning, which I find very important. For example, visual learners like me will find it easier to retain information if it is presented in a clear, colourful way., e.g. posters or colourful post-it notes.
I also think it's very important to reach an agreement with the tuttee, so that learning and teaching can be done in a friendly, pleasant manner. I want to make learning easy and fun for children (the wish is based solely on my experience), making them understand that learning is not always boring!

Maths:
I understand that some people find it difficult to understand basic concepts of Maths, which are a key to basic education in Mathematics. I will try to explain these concepts in a very accessible manner and then consolidate them via doing various exercises and practise papers.

Languages:
I think it is important to have a balance between written and oral work, as both aspects are equally important when learning any language. For primary/KS3 tuttees, I would suggest learning through completing worksheets and exercises after looking at a particular vocabulary or grammar section. Of course, this method can be adapted to the preferences of the tuttee.
At GCSE level, the knowledge of the syllabus is essential, so we will equip ourselves with mark schemes, syllabus requirements and examiner reports to gain a better understanding of what exactly is required in the exam. Then we will practice all the necessary exam skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing), along with learning vocabulary, A* expressions and grammar. (I am only able to offer GCSE level tutoring in French and Russian).
I believe that real knowledge of a language at a communicative/fluent level is extremely important, even when only preparing for an exam. I will put as much emphasis as possible on pronounciation and expression, to make the tuttee's language sound natural. I also recommend reading books, short stories or even comics in a required language, as this really helps expand the understanding of the language, its vocabulary and grammatic structures.

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge University, fully-qualified language teacher After graduating I spent time in Italy working as an English teacher before settling again in the UK.
Teaching languages for me is not just a profession but also a passion. Apart from languages my main pastimes are travelling, cookery, wine and history.
As well as teaching in school, I run my own language training business.

Teaching Experience:

I have a varied and eclectic teaching experience having started out as an EFL teacher before gaining my P.G.C.E. I hold Qualified Teacher Status and have previously taught Modern Foreign Languages at Secondary School.
In addition, I have taught Adult Education Language Courses for East Riding Council.
Currently I am also teaching French classes in local primary schools.
I have also continued to teach EFL and have taught students from all over the world from Russia to Japan.
I also run regular courses in French, Spanish and Italian. In addition, I run small literacy support groups to help KS2 children improve their reading, spelling and punctuation.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor my approach is patient and flexible. The learner is at the heart of what I do and my aim is for all students to make rapid progress but also to enjoy their learning. As a result I enjoy planning varied and engaging lessons which are tailor-made for my students. I strongly believe that one-to-one and small group tuition can deliver real results for all types of learners due to the focus on individual learning needs and styles.

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 December 2013.

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.

Personal Description:
I am a French student who settled in the UK in October. I am curretly living in Southend and I work in Westcliff High School for Girls as a French Assistant. I only work in the mornings, which gives me a lot of free time to give private lessons!

Teaching Experience:

I have already given private English lessons to French students (usually in secondary school) and I currently teach French in an English high school.

Tutoring Approach:

When it comes to private teaching, I usually give lessons inspired by what the student really likes (films, music, books etc...), I prepare different exercises in advance if necessary. I insist a lot on oral practise too in order to check if the pronunciation is good.

Personal Description:
Having always taken academic learning seriously myself, I am keen to help others do the same. My 12 A* GCSEs led to A* A* A* A grades at A Level, and now I'm studying towards a French degree at Oxford University. I am a very capable linguist, whose knowledge has a particular depth to it, having studied French, German, Latin and English Literature at A Level. This level of expertise stems from a natural love for these subjects, and this passion is a great asset for a tutor to have.

Teaching Experience:

I have assisted Key Stage 4 lessons at Chesterton Community College, taking small groups aside to help them with grammar and speaking tasks.

Tutoring Approach:

As I teach, I am able to focus on the exact components of the subject which it is necessary to know for the examination being taken, so that everything I teach is of the utmost relevance. Having been through the same exams I will be teaching, I will make it clear exactly how to excel. This practical approach is nonetheless accompanied by the natural enthusiasm which I have for these subjects.
As an Oxford University student, I am also well-equipped to shed light on the Oxbridge application process, as well as the application process for Hills Road Sixth Form College, which is where I took my A Levels.
