Personal Description:
My name is Oliver and I am a 22-year-old student at the University of Warwick, where I study German & History joint honours. I have recently returned from my year abroad in Germany, where I studied not only German language and literature, but also history and French language at the Humboldt University in Berlin. I would describe myself as enthusiastic and friendly.

Teaching Experience:

Between January and June 2012 I volunteered through Warwick Volunteers at a school in Coventry, where I acted as a teaching assistant in a Year 8 French class. I furthermore tutored a then first-year student at the University of Warwick during this time period. She was interested in improving her German language from GCSE-level and so we met for an hour every week in the university library. During the lessons we not only focused on grammar, but also on texts which I provided to widen vocabulary and to understand sentence structure in a real context.

Tutoring Approach:

For me it is important that the tutoring can either be as relaxed or as focused as the student wants it to be. We all have our own individual ways of learning and retaining information, so it is key to understand best how the student learns when approaching a topic. It is also good when students think for themselves, rather than simply soaking up information, and so I tend to encourage this kind of self-sufficiency in learning. I encourage debate and get students to justifying their reasoning and thought, skills which are not only useful for the future but also are more engaging for students.

Personal Description:
Hi!

My name is Simon, I am 27 years old and a native German.
I have been teaching German for private students and at a professional language school for the past five years in Germany, Australia and England.
My university degree is in English Linguistics, and I also speak Spanish and French fluently.

Working as a language trainer has immensely enriched my life experience and filled me with tremendous joy. I truly love languages and would love to be given the chance to keep enthusing students with knowledge about my native language and culture.

Should you be interested in hiring me as a tutor, simply contact me via phone or email. I normally respond within 24 hours.

Teaching Experience:

5 years as a private Tutor and Language Trainer at various professional language schools

Tutoring Approach:

To give my students the confidence to talk, talk, talk. No one has ever learned a language without making mistakes. We were all beginners once.
You won't learn unless you're having fun doing it. Every lesson should be as enjoyable and rich in variety as possible.

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

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

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

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

Teaching Experience:

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

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

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

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

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

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

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

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

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher in Secondary School Science and also a chemist with a German Diplom in Chemistry (equivalent to MSc). During my training as a scientist I studied organic, inorganic, physical, food- and biochemistry as well as maths, physics and toxicology. I currently work as a part-time teacher of science in a secondary school and also tutor GCSE and A- level students in German and Science on a one-to-one basis. I would appreciate the opportunity to use my experience and knowledge to enthuse other people for my subject and mother tongue and to help them achieve their qualifications.

Teaching Experience:

I trained as a Secondary School Science teacher and obtained my PGCE from the University of East Anglia in July 2007. During my training I gained a lot of experience in various school settings, teaching students on a one-to-one basis as well as in small groups and large classes. I learned to use various teaching approaches to suit different types of learners and also obtained experience with Special Needs Children.
Since then I have tutored a large variety of students ranging from complete beginner to university candidates, helping them to boost their confidence and grades as well as prepare for exams and interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

Rather than using school-type teaching to repeat what has already been heard during lesson I like to explore and identify the areas of strengths and weaknesses of each student and develop a method to improve learning strategies involving a variety of exercises. My aim is to boost the confidence of each learner and equip them with tools to analyse the tasks ahead and solve problems.
It is important to create exciting, stimulating and challenging exercises based on sound theory and facts to gain the learners interest in the subject and motivate them to explore further.

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 hold a BA Hons in Languages and Literature- English and German Studies and a MA in English Literature from the University of Oporto, my home city. I completed my teacher training overseas in 1993 and have obtained my QTS in the UK.

In February 2011 I obtained a Certificate in Spanish DELE C2 from Instituto Cervantes in London. I have an absolute love of teaching languages, speak perfect English and am currently studying French to C2 level at the Institut Français. I have an enhanced CRB disclosure and am a member of Association for Language Learning (ALL).

Teaching Experience:

I have 17 years of experience teaching modern foreign languages at secondary level, higher education and adults.

I taught English and German in secondary schools in Portugal at KS3 and KS4. I taught EFL in Language Institutes in Greece and successfully prepared my students to the Cambridge exams. I taught Portuguese to University level and adults in lifelong learning evening schools in Denmark.

Since March 2012 I have been teaching Spanish, French and German up to GCSE level in English state schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach and my aim is to always create a relaxed atmosphere in which the student feels at ease, confident in their progress and always challenged to learn more.

Personal Description:
My name is Elena, I am Italian but fluent in English and German.

I graduated in Translation and Interpretation at Scuole Civiche Milano, Dipartimento di Lingue (Centre for Translation Studies Milan)
and further qualified in Translation from English and German into Italian (and viceversa) at UNIVERSIT MARC BLOCH de Strasbourg.

I left university in 2001 to work as a free-lance translator (English and German to Italian) for various Italian publishers, such as Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Editore, Arnoldo Mondadori Editore and Il Saggiatore.

I also did sub-contract work for an agency involved in making subtitles for films, TV series for the DVD market and subtitles for productions for SKY TV.

Teaching Experience:

From March 2006 to July 2007, I taught audiovisual translation from German into Italian at Scuole Civiche Milano, Dipartimento di Lingue (Centre for Translation Studies Milan)

In 2007 I entered into teaching Italian to foreigners living in Milan.
This involved an intensive training course in teaching and a certificate awarded by International House, Milan.
Since then I have been working full time in language schools, teaching Italian on a one-to-one as well as on a group basis.

In 2013 I was also awarded a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) by the University of Cambridge am currently working for a language school in central London.

I have experience in teaching people of different nationalities and age, from kids/teenagers to adult professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a communicative method, which is student centered and where the target language is used from the first lesson.
Starting from a context, students learn new vocabulary, then reading a text or listening to a dialogue they find out about grammar or other aspects of the language. Written and oral practice follow.
This method is both very effective and fun, we won't just study grammar and write, there will be lots of games and conversation involved.

I also help younger learners with homeworks and uni students with preparation for exams and proof-reading of assignments.

Personal Description:
I have enjoyed working with children in teaching and pastoral roles for more than seven years. I have completed Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in counselling training, and I am currently working towards my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling; as a result I have developed valuable listening skills. My other interests include patchwork sewing and baking. I have a calm and gentle approach, and I have a proven ability to make children feel at ease when working with me.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years experience of working in primary schools across all age-ranges. My various roles have included teaching: all subjects in whole class groups; extra basic skills support in small groups; and one-to-one phonics and spellings lessons. I have helped children to achieve excellent progress in all my roles.

In my experience as a private tutor for almost four years, I have tutored children between the ages of six and eleven, including preparation for SATs and eleven plus tests. I have excellent references which highlight children's significant progress and increased confidence since working with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor tutoring to the individual child, focusing on their strengths and preferred learning styles. I use games to reinforce concepts while making learning enjoyable. I offer rewards, such as stickers and certificates, to motivate and recognise children's achievements. All my lessons are thoroughly planned and prepared, and regular assessment informs planning for later lessons.

Targets are set at an initial meeting and are reviewed on a termly basis, when new targets may be set. A written report is given to parents and carers at the end of each term. Reductions in fees are offered if you are able to pay for a block of lessons in advance.

Personal Description:
I am a bilingual (German/English) American living, working, and studying (PhD, King's College London) in the UK. I have 7 years' experience teaching English as a foreign language in Germany and Austria and now offer German tutoring as well, as I am fluent in German (I'm constantly mistaken for German in Austria!). Because I learned German as a second language, I have insights into it that a native speaker often will not have. These can help you to learn the language better.

Teaching Experience:

I taught English for a company called englishexpertise in Bonn, Germany. Our biggest client was Deutsche Post World Net, the parent company of DHL. Other clients included a German government ministry, Thyssen Krupp, and an IT company. I also gave English conversation classes at the University of Bonn.

I moved to Vienna in 2007 and taught English there with my own company. My biggest client was the City of Vienna, but I also taught for several language schools and other companies. I also acted as a linguistic consultant for a company that wished to design language tests and courses focusing on sociolinguistic competence, something very few people before have ever learned in a classroom. I bring these same insights to teaching German.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is very much that of a facilitator. I focus exactly on the areas students need, while trying to promote their understanding of the language, rather than memorization. I do this by filling in the cultural context. Students learn the language by stealth while using it to learn about and discuss things they like anyway -- as far as this is possible within the constraints of what they need to learn, of course. I believe learning should be fun; I learned German so quickly and easily because I enjoyed it and my teachers supported me.

Personal Description:
I am a student at the University of Oxford reading German. For my A Levels I studied German, English Literature and History and received A*, A* and an A. For AS I also did Mathematics and for my GCSE's I studied: Maths, Dual Science, English Literature, English Language, German, French, History, Art and Drama.

Teaching Experience:

I worked in a primary school for 6 months in my gap year, primarily teaching reading, writing and mathematics to the younger years as well as art, sport and IT skills. Previous to this job, I taught a German club at a local primary school and have worked on a charity literacy scheme, where I tutored reading and writing one on one to a child who was underachieving for his age group. I have also done other volunteer tutoring at a primary school, reading one on one with the children and improving their literacy skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it is best to discuss together what you feel you need help with or needs to be worked on and from there we can assess how best to proceed. I prefer you to bring your own material to me as from this I can see what it is you are struggling with, how advanced your school work is and the level you are aiming for.

Personal Description:
I have been a teacher all my professional life, although for ten years I worked in the theatre as an actor, fight director and singer. I love teaching and I love music. Most importantly, perhaps, I have never stopped learning!

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English, French and German for 25 years. I studied English at Oxford; worked in Germany, studied in Spain and have my main home in France. My first GCSE Spanish class all achieved A* and A grades. I recently trained in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, so I feel up to date with current teaching methodology. Nevertheless, I adapt my teaching style and methods to benefit my tutees. I teach adult evening classes and give private tuition in French, Spanish, German and English Literacy.

Tutoring Approach:

I will come to your home and talk to you about what your learning requirements are and will tutor in order for you to maximise your potential in line with your requirements. All tutees have different learning styles and preferences, too, so I will pick up on yours and shape our lessons accordingly. We will work proactively, and there will be specific goals and targets for each lesson so that you will be able to chart your progress. My colleagues think I have a great sense of humour, and I have sometimes found it to be helpful in a teaching situation. I am, however, totally professional in the conduct of my lessons and tutorials.

Personal Description:
Hi!

My name is Simon, I am 27 years old and a native German.
I have been teaching German for private students and at a professional language school for the past five years in Germany, Australia and England.
My university degree is in English Linguistics, and I also speak Spanish and French fluently.

Working as a language trainer has immensely enriched my life experience and filled me with tremendous joy. I truly love languages and would love to be given the chance to keep enthusing students with knowledge about my native language and culture.

Should you be interested in hiring me as a tutor, simply contact me via phone or email. I normally respond within 24 hours.

Teaching Experience:

5 years as a private Tutor and Language Trainer at various professional language schools

Tutoring Approach:

To give my students the confidence to talk, talk, talk. No one has ever learned a language without making mistakes. We were all beginners once.
You won't learn unless you're having fun doing it. Every lesson should be as enjoyable and rich in variety as possible.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate of Durham (BA History), and UCL (MA Central and South Eastern European Studies). I spent the last three academic years studying and tutoring.

My main areas of interest are humanities and languages and I am an enthusiastic and passionate communicator. I currently hold a CRB certificate. I offer History to A level and below, English Literature to A-Level and below and Ancient Greek to A-Level and below.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced tutor, having spent the past two academic years tutoring a range of subjects, and have a passion for teaching and communication. Having been a part time participant of mainstream education until recently, and having tutored four different pupils at different levels in different subjects in that time, I have a clear understanding of the structure of current A-Level courses and the necessary requirements. All my previous pupils unanimously achieved high grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutoring approach to the tutee's needs and the subject being taught. Generally, I do a combination of exam technique, subject revision and coursework support. I have made many an amusing yet educational quiz and encourage pupils as much as possible for them to achieve the best grade possible.

Personal Description:
Having always been passionate about languages, I have studied them keenly and learned how to break them down and make them accessible to anyone. I am also fascinated by art and history and therefore aim to incorporate notions of foreign culture in language teaching. At the same time, I am a trained actress, and am happy to tutor drama students or people preparing for drama school.

Teaching Experience:

I left uuniversity in 2011 and have been working as a private tutor ever since. I teach both casual learners and students, particularly GCSE and A-level French and German. I also teach English as a second language and drama/acting.

Tutoring Approach:

Although I learned all my foreign languages through a rigorous method very much based on writing and grammar, I am happy to adapt my method to the student's needs. Personally, I believe that conversation is the key to becoming fluent in a language, but at the same time I could never bear to neglect the importance of writing and reading comprehension.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate at the University of Leeds specializing in Mandarin Chinese and French language with a minor in German. As part of my degree I spent one year living and studying in Beijing at Capital Normal University . During the year I lived with a Chinese family who didn't speak English at all, allowing me to become fluent. Prior to this I studied Mandarin as a hobby and gained a grade 'A' at GCSE. I have also come first in national Mandarin competitions such as the HSBC speaking competition. I was also awarded two scholarships from the Chinese government for coming in the top 15% in a Chinese University.

I also speak French and studied this as a major at University. I spent one semester living and studying in France and once again I lived with a French family. At sixth form I was awarded an Anglo-French scholarship to study in France.

I studied German to A2 and qualified to study German as a minor as part of my degree due to my grades at A level. Whilst studying at University I was awarded a scholarship to study at Freie Universität by the German government during the summer.

I have a real passion for languages and have been very privileged to have had the opportunities to go and live in the countries where these languages are spoken and experience the diverse culture each country has to offer. Teaching is something that I am very passionate about and want to help others have the same opportunities I have been fortunate to have.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching both Chinese to English speakers and English to Chinese speakers. Whilst living in China I taught conversational travel English to a class of 50 trainee air hostesses. During the final year of my degree I also taught Chinese on a voluntary basis at a secondary school near Leeds. I taught the students beginner's Chinese and by the end of the year my students were able to hold a conversation, read and write basic Chinese and have an understanding of the Chinese culture.

In summer 2010 I was a language assistant at a French language summer camp. I taught A-level French to British school children preparing for their A-levels. I was required to talk to my students in the target language, teach them key vocabulary, how to form sentence structures and prepare them for their A-levels.

I am a qualified teacher and currently teach French, German and Chinese Mandarin to 11-16 year old students, so am very familiar with the national curriculum and examination specifications. In 2011 I also completed a module called 'linguists into schools', where I taught Mandarin in underprivileged schools around Leeds. I also have tutored one to one in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very relaxed in order to make the learner as confident as possible in a stress-free working environment. I love French, German and Chinese, which is probably why I am so enthusiastic about teaching it to others. I tailor my lessons to the need of the learner and work at the learner's pace. I am also quite happy to teach in the target language. I encourage students to speak confidently in all my languages, as I myself remember how daunting it can often seem as a learner. I believe that grammar and vocabulary is key when learning a language which is why I teach grammar structures whilst referring back to previously learnt vocabulary in order to build up a data base of new words. Being able to speak another language opens up many opportunities which is why I strive to help my students do the best they can.
