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:
I'm a 42-year old graduate of the excellent University of Sussex languages course with a First Class Honours degree in French and Russian. I lived for four years in Paris where I mastered the language and the accent!

As well as language studies, my course encompassed literature from the 16th to the 20th centuries and history, society and politics since the French Revolution - subjects I am therefore qualified to talk about with some authority.

I like to stay abreast of French culture and society and am catching up with some novels I didn't get to read at university (most recently Georges Perec's wonderful <i>La Vie, mode d'emploi</i>)

Teaching Experience:

I have now been privately tutoring students at all levels for 6 years covering most UK exam boards at GCSE KS3 and KS4, AS and A2-level, and I have also helped prepare older students for the DELF.

Recent successes include steering a young lady through her DELF B1 exam with a 92.5% mark and an 11-year old girl passing her selective school entrance exam.

Here are some comments from a couple of clients - originals available on request.

<i>"Thank you so much for all your patient hard work - you taught her exactly the right stuff and there is no way she could have done it without you! I really didn't think it was possible to teach the whole year 7 curriculum in a week but somehow you managed it.

"Tiffin Girls is one of the top state schools in the country and rather competitive. Chatting to the other parents outside the exam, most of the competitors went to good independents or had been tutored over a long period of time. <b>You really knew not only what to teach but how to teach it, which shows you have exceptional skills.</b>"</i> - Anoushka (pupil's mother)

<i>"Just thought I should let you know I got an A! Thanks for all your help"</i> - Helena (A-level student)

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to tailor lessons specifically to a student's needs, but my general method is to engage him or her at a level just above their 'comfort zone'. Learning is about challenging yourself to do better, and it is crucial for a tutor to be supportive and encouraging, and also to keep the bar high.

Lessons can be conducted entirely in French, or in a mixture of English and French. I can work alongside a student's existing course (that is, from a textbook a student is already following), or we can use course books that I recommend.

Where the level allows, I like to draw upon material from contemporary sources such as French news magazines.

For "conversation classes", I find it is useful to base the discussion on an article or a book to help build vocabulary, and also think that incorporating grammar instruction (where appropriate) can be a good idea.

Note that hourly rates are based on the student travelling to my home. If you require tutoring at your own home or office, there is an extra charge per lesson, dependent on distance travelled. Please contact me for more details!

Personal Description:
Recently returned to the UK to live near my family after teaching abroad for many years. I have 2 teenagers who no longer need my constant attention. I enjoy speaking other languages and love teaching, especially one to one teaching, where I can focus all my attention on the individual.

Teaching Experience:

1976-1987 EFL teaching in the UK and abroad. 6th form, secondary and adult. Also some ESL and home teaching.

1988- 2008. Primary teaching 3-12 year olds. I am trained in Early Years teaching. For 9 years I was the English Language Support coordinator in a large international school. My responsibilities included assessing children's needs, planning and teaching English as an additional language throughout the Infant and Junior school, improving reading skills and helping train other staff in the above. I have regularly tutored individuals and small groups of children after school.
I have recently completed a course in "Big Writing" with Ros Wilson of Andrell Education, focusing on improving writing skills from KS1 to KS3

2009- present. Nursery teacher and part time Modern languages/ Supply teacher in KS2

Tutoring Approach:

Each person's needs are different and my first job is to develop a trusting relationship so that I can quickly assess the priorities. Building confidence in prior knowledge comes next. It's important to pace the lesson so that there is just enough pressure but no stress. I like to work on all 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) whatever the goal of the class, and to that end use a variety of resources; books, cards, games, music, computer. I am a very good listener and have unlimited patience. I constantly make students aware of the progress they are making which builds confidence and speeds up learning. I set very high but reachable standards.

Personal Description:
I am trilingual having been educated until the age of 15 in British boarding schools and then in Switzerland for 'A' Levels. I attended Nantes University for three years and obtained a degree in Linguistics. I enjoy teaching one a one-to-one basis. I have a wide variety of interests which means I am able to always find common ground with the student and therefore always establish a good relationship

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored on a one-to-one basis for many years for West Sussex Tutors based in Crawley with excellent results. I have also taught for many years in France where I lived for twelve years in both Lycees and Ecoles Superieures. Whilst living in Chile I also taught at La Serena University.

Tutoring Approach:

I am extremely patient and always try and use encouragement and praise to develop confidence. I am quite strict with expecting homework to be done as often this is the very reason why I am tutoring in the first place. Being well-spoken, I tend to command respect and admiration when the pupil realises that I am tri-lingual. I love tutoring and would like to extend the number of pupils I teach. It is also a way for me to practise and to continue improving myself in those areas I love and have a passion for

Personal Description:
I have always had an interest in languages, studying French, German and English at A-level, followed by a first class BA Dual Hons from Sheffield University in French and German, with a distinction for spoken Swedish. After graduating in 2003 I completed an MA with Distinction in Translation (French and German) and undertook some freelance translation work. After a 'career break' from languages to become a Mum of three girls (aged 8,6 and 3), I am now offering tuition in French and German.
Alongside my language qualifications, I also play piano to post grade 8 standard, and achieved a DipLCM in Performance in 2009. I currently work part-time as a peripatetic piano teacher in two local primary schools. I now also offer music theory tuition up to grade 5 level.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching piano pupils either privately from home or within the school environment since 2003, which has been a great way to refine and develop my one-to-one teaching skills; I love being able to move at the pupil's own pace and respond to their individual needs which is a luxury that private tutors can enjoy. I have also worked with adults and university students who want to refresh their skills rather than work towards specific exams. Recently I have gained experience supporting a student through an Open University programme, which focused on speaking and the fundamentals of German grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to respond to the needs of each individual pupil and tailor a programme to suit your needs; if you have particular subject weaknesses that you would like to work on then they can be addressed, or if you have particular topic areas that are of interest to you then we can develop those. I will work with the syllabus requirements that you are working towards, and provide you with work for home in between lessons as required.

Also, due to my background in translation, my specialist area is grammar and writing skills should that be an area that you are keen to work on!

Personal Description:
I am friendly, straightforward, encouraging and positive. I am a retired teacher, a non-smoker and a car driver. I have no pets, although I am fond of animals. I retain many links with France, having spent many years there and have a keen interest in French cinema and literature.

Teaching Experience:

I am a highly experienced teacher having taught English in France and French in the UK for many years. I am a fluent French speaker, as I spent 16 years living in France and working not only as an English teacher to all age groups but also in commerce and industry and this has given me a thorough knowledge of all aspects of the language. I have taught French in the UK to all age groups but mainly in schools where I taught pupils from Year 1 to Year 11. I have taught English and humanities at primary level which I greatly enjoyed. I also hold a degree in law.

Tutoring Approach:

I hope your lessons with me will be enjoyable and fulfilling. I always maintain a positive outlook and encourage and stretch my students, helping them to achieve their potential, whatever their age, level or difficulties. I aim to make successful learning available to my students using both traditional methods and modern technology and, where appropriate, games, role plays, drama and music.

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 native speaker of Italian with a degree in European Language and extensive teaching experience. I have been based in Oxford for the past 6 years, after having lived in different European countries. I am an enthusiast linguist and my multilingual family is testimonial to that (a French husband, and trilingual children).

Teaching Experience:

I have gained experience in teaching to both adults and younger students (secondary school and degree level), both in formal context (I taught in university degree courses and schools) and less formal (evening and leisure courses) as well as Italian for business (directly to companies for their employees).

Tutoring Approach:

I privilege the communicative approach as after all languages are made to communicate! This allows all lessons to be more relaxed and rewarding as small results can be achieved - and seen - every time. I have run absolute beginners intensive courses and my aim is to allow the student(s) to go home speaking from the first time, however little it might be. At the same time, I also tend not to forget about grammar as it is the structure of the language and gives a better insight and understanding, but even grammar doesn't necessarily need to be taught in a very conservative manner.

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

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

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

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

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

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

I'll help you to achieve your goals.

Teaching Experience:

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

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

- 2 years as a kindergarten teacher

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

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

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

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

- Greetings from Paris! Reconnaissant Marc

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

Claudia

Personal Description:
I was born in France and lived there for 25 years before moving to England where I completed a postgraduate diploma and subsequently worked as a civil servant. This is also when I met my husband.

Following the birth of my children in 2001, 2003 and 2006, I left my demanding job and got involved at first in French groups for pre-school children before starting tutoring students for French GCSE.

As I am helping at my children's primary school, I hold a current CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

After teaching beginners French to young children for a few years, I now specialise in tutoring students at GCSE. I am fully conversant with the GCSE syllabus and it is currently, by choice, my sole area of tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin first by assessing the student's strengths and weaknesses. I have a flexible approach and will base the lessons/exercises around the current topics covered at school (i.e.: environment, education etc) using my own materials. I retain a strong focus on the different exams (oral, writing, listening) required throughout the year for French GCSE, and provide mock exam practice for my students.

Personal Description:
Hello I am a native French tutor. I not only teach French because it is my mother tongue but because I think it is a very beautiful and interesting language but also a difficult one to learn. I myself have had to learn two foreign languages, English and Spanish, and I know how difficult and frustrating it can get but I also know how rewarding it is when you make progress.

Teaching Experience:

I am now working as a French Assistant in WGSB in Watford with A-level students, my part being to help them prepare their oral exam. It is my second year in WGSB and I really enjoy the task. I have also worked for a French Language school giving daily 3 hours lessons to teenagers and younger children from around world who come to France to improve their knowledge of French. In Spain where I lived for 7 years I gave private French tutoring lessons mostly to Adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Languages are made of vocabulary, grammar rules and barbaric sounds you just cannot get to pronounce sometimes:). They also reflect and convey a culture and a way of life which should be a part of the learning, especially as it seems to me that those cultural elements are the ones which can actually make the learning easier and more varied. And finally but not least I think learning a language has to be playful and agreeable, otherwise you will unconsciously reject the language and progress will be made much more difficult. Learning about others and learning to communicate in a different language is a great experience. Try it:)

Personal Description:
I am a 20 year old student at the University of Liverpool, studying French and Psychology. I have studied Psychology at A-level and I have been able to speak fluent French from the age of 5, as I was in the French school system up until the age of 15.
I have lived in a number of different countries and have a lot of experience with getting to know new people in new environments. I am told that I am a friendly and approachable person, and I enjoy being able to help others whether this involves academic/school help or just being someone to talk to.
I am the eldest of 3 children and I am very responsible and organised.

Teaching Experience:

I have had some teaching experience, as my mother is a teacher I have been lucky enough to be able to have done some work experience with her in the various schools she has worked at over the past years. I also have experience with homework tutoring for people in my own schools, as well as teaching my own siblings with their homework/coursework.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly and approachable person, making people feel welcome and that they can ask any questions they like in regards to subjects they do not understand fully. When tutoring, I make sure that every subject is covered thoroughly before moving on to the next level/topic.
I ensure that all tutees feel that they can take as much time and ask me as many questions as they like, as I believe that a friendly, non-pressured approach to tutoring is the approach which will produce much more efficient, beneficial results.

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Ewa and I am passionate about learning and teaching languages. I am a native Polish speaker, my strongest foreign language is French and this is the main language that I teach. Moreover I have a very good command of Spanish and Italian and I am happy to offer these languages to beginners and intermediate learners.
I truly enjoy all aspects of teaching and I am convinced that my own passion for the languages can inspire and motivate my students to love learning languages as I do. With my strong knowledge of the subject, professional and personal attributes, I could certainly help you to meet your language needs.

Teaching Experience:

University studies in France for a Master's degree in Modern Languages and multiple stays in this country enabled me to acquire native level spoken French. I started my professional career teaching French in a Polish high school where my performance was highly praised. On arrival in England, I achieved UK Qualified Teacher Status in recognition of my overseas teacher qualifications. I had the opportunity to teach French to children in after school classes for The French Club. Although I have worked in different areas, I have always maintained my linguistic abilities, using my language skills in every profession I have been employed in, and fulfilled my passion for languages with private tutoring, teaching a range of ages from children to adults.

Tutoring Approach:

As a language teacher, I am always deeply involved in planning and preparation which allows me to deliver lessons to the highest standards. I use a variety of teaching methods, effective materials and resources, giving learners opportunities to develop and practice their skills. I pay attention to teaching within a cultural context and being very creative I enjoy sourcing materials, making the learning process challenging and yet enjoyable. Being myself a keen language learner, I perfectly understand how challenging it can be, acquiring a new language.
During our first tester session that I offer for free, I would assess your knowledge to identify your language level, learning style, motivation and according to your expectations I would propose a plan and methods we could use to achieve your language goals.

I am looking forward to help you build your confidence in speaking languages!

Personal Description:
I have been living in London for two years now, to start a new career and to develop a rich English language. Previously, I was born and lived in Paris for the first 25 years of my life.
I stay naturally interested in the educational field beside my work as a tutor, as I have committed into a Psychology course at City University London. Specifically, I always show curiosity and respect towards the unique approach that every learner needs when assimilating new knowledge.

Teaching Experience:

In Paris, I started as a volunteer within the French Red Cross and organised French classes for women experiencing severe linguistic disadvantages. In parallel, I was in charge of teaching privately a minor with learning and concentration disabilities.

I have become a home tutor since I have been living in London. Students for French are from 4 to 65 levelling from beginner to upper-intermediate. My emphasis is to organize classes according to students' needs. For conversational and business lessons, I have looked for the use of new other resources such as interactive exercises, programs on the radio, dictations, bilingual books, journals, softwares, card games and various playful activities for children; all beside a regular work on a book based on goals set.

In a more academic context, I have been helping French learners with writing, working thoroughly on essay and other writing skills (developing opinions, descriptions of past and current activities, plans and intentions). Besides, I have focused on adjusting the balance between passive and active skills according to each student, and working also on pronunciation. In other situations, we have also often gone through intensive preparation for school French examinations (GCSE, A-Level, Common Entrance examination, SAT, examinations in France such as the CRPE).

Moreover, I have been teaching Mathematics and Biology at primary, secondary and at a GCSE levels, in preparation of the exams. As I have been studying these subjects for a long time now and have shown curiosity towards them, I have also understood the specific school expectations at all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

In light of my current experience, I have realised how much teaching enhances interest to me. Successful learning has come through building motivation and confidence with my students. In many situations, learning will ask the learner to make an effort and the tutor has the duty to create the appropriate strategies for them to assimilate knowledge. I will be able to fulfil this by understanding deeply their specific gaps.
From the beginning, I have realised how essential it is to establish goals, to stay positive and resilient with learners. I have learnt to remain patient, focused on aims, as well as interested in all my students as unique persons and finding out the suitable learning pace for each of them. I have enjoyed conveying knowledge, stimulating and helping them to improve specific skills.

Achieving them to develop their confidence and being able to motivate, learn by themselves, and to handle new challenges has always been rewarding to me.

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 have also trained and worked as a translator 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 tutor from home or can travel to you, dependent on location.
