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'm Anna, an italian girl from Rome. I would consider myself open-minded and easy going, I love traveling, I like to discover new places and meet new people.
I have a master degree in Philosophy, gained with an international program between Italy and Germany. Philosophy was my first love, I simply enjoy questions whose answer is an other question, but to match my interest those have to have a practical, real character. Therefore I've discovered my love for the languages and the skill to communicate between people.

Teaching Experience:

About teaching Italian: I've been a teacher until February by the Intercultural Popular School of the ARCI (the most important italian cultural association) of Rome, turned to foreign citizens, mainly immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees, to which it offers an Italian language teaching, on the levels of literacy, A1, A2 and B1. I've also done the DITALS II exam at the end of February.

About teaching German: My german knowledge corresponds to the C1 european level (I've got the Test Daf certification), that's the highest level before to be a mother tongue. At the moment I give private lessons of german for 3 years, since I came back from Germany. Even if I'm not a mother tongue I have a really strong teaching experience and, most important, I know how complicated could be learning german and I've already experienced all the tricks to manage this language and without feeling overwhelmed.

About teaching Philosophy/critical thinking: I have a Bachelor and Master Degree in Philosophy, I'm basically a philosopher. I love philosophical subjects and generally to practice a critical way to think. Since I went to the University, 7 years ago, I've started to give philosophy private lessons and I never stopped.

Tutoring Approach:

About languages: I think that the language is the best medium to act, therefore my teaching approach is strictly focused on the skill to act. I use a communicative way to teaching, which begins with the student and his language needs and problems, and it looks at the solution of these, quickly and with fun.

About Philosophy/Critical thinking: I know that sometimes philosophers and, generally, thinkers could seem unrealistic, simply out of the world and therefore not understandable. Anyway I like this subject so much that I'm able to let look at it with a new point of view, which let discover an other whole world, incredibly interesting.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher of German and Spanish who enjoys her job and I am happy to help anyone with their language learning. I graduated with languages and pursued a teaching career and I am now working as a teacher of Modern Languages in a secondary school.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of one-to-one and small group tutoring and I have a thorough knowledge of the Scottish school curriculum including arrangements for the new National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher courses. I have now taught the new courses in both German and Spanish and have a good understanding of levels and assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a great way of learning a language because you benefit from full attention of your tutor. I plan and deliver my lessons to suit my pupils' needs. Passing an exam often needs preparation with a professional with the knowledge to support their pupil/student through a complex system of assessments/ NABs etc.
On the other hand, we learn languages to use them independently, free from the constraints of selected exam topics. This is where vocabulary, language structure and grammar come together and enables the learner to use their learning in different contexts. I teach all areas effectively using tried and tested techniques and resources that will help my learners to improve their knowledge of the language.

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 34 years old and hold a Masters degree from Oxford University.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring on a one-to-one basis for over 12 years. I also sometimes teach small classes. I am happy teaching children, teenagers university students and adult learners.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching uses traditional methods and lively interaction. I expect the student to complete tasks between lessons. Without repetition and revision no-one can be expected to remember. Therefore, I am not afraid to go over the most basic elements until they are well known. Solid foundations are the basis for confidence.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and experienced teacher of Modern Foreign Languages. I have taught in a school near Wakefield for 8 years and have been a private tutor for two years. I am a very enthusiastic and approachable teacher. I can offer languages teaching in French, Spanish, German, Italian and Japanese. I offer teaching at all levels: primary languages, with a view to possibly taking GCSE examinations early, Key stage 3, GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A2 levels and adult languages classes. I have experience in all areas of languages teaching and I throughly enjoy teaching languages!

I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to take the language of their choice. Therefore, I am happy to offer to help students take a GCSE or A level in a language which may not be available in their school. I can help with assessments and speaking tests in addition to a high standard of tuition to learn the language at the desired level and beyond.

I am currently learning Chinese as it has always interested me and as a teacher, I know that I need to remember what it is like to be a language learner!

References are available upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE qualification in Modern Languages and as part of my studies, I taught in two schools in North Yorkshire. I have been a teacher in a Specialist Language College near Wakefield for 8 years and a private tutor for 2 years. As a teacher in a Specialist Language College, I have taught KS3 and GCSE languages in addition to working in the community, teaching languages at local Primary Schools and carrying out Adult language classes.

For my private tuition, I have taught many A-level students in addition to primary students, GCSE students and adult learners. I have found this to be very interesting to see how people learn in different ways and develop their confidence in learning a new language or gaining extra support for language learning.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I always check to see what level each student is at in the first lesson. All lessons are tailored to the students' needs so they can get the most out of learning a language. I recommend useful resources and I am happy to lend books and DVDs from the extensive range of resources I have built up as a result of tutees' wishes. I have an excellent knowledge of the national curriculum and exam specifications of all the boards and I keep up-to-date with the many changes which may occur in education.

I look at all language skills although I may focus on one or two particular areas if this is what the tutee needs (such as listening and speaking if exams were not to be taken). I use ICT in my lessons and use many different websites and encourage students to use these at home and I help with grammar, even if it is the basics, as an understanding of this is essential to learning a language successfully!

I set homework tasks each week for students and I also offer a 'mid lesson service', where students can Skype or Phone so that I can check on progress or answer any questions. A quick chat in the target language is fine too! This service is free. I am also happy to answer any texts on the language- that is what I'm here for!

All new students are welcome. I always answer all requests so please also check spam folders just in case!

merci, gracias, grazie, danke, arigatou!

Personal Description:
I always seek to organise lessons around the student's areas of interest.
I expect lessons to be both fun and challenging, and set clear goals and objectives for each student, both short- term and long- term.
I have lived and taught in France, Germany and the UK.

Teaching Experience:

6 years in a London Montessori School, age range 5- 16.
3 years in a London comprehensive, age range 11- 19.
3 years in a West Midlands comprehensive, age range 11- 16.
10 years in a Cheshire comprehensive, age range 11- 18.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a serious investment of time and money on the part of both student and teacher, and so I always spend part of the first session making sure that everyone is clear about the aims and objectives of the tutoring.

Personal Description:
I have recently moved to Eastbourne following six years in West Yorkshire where I worked as a a self-employed independent education consultant, and also as a School Improvement Partner and Link Officer for Calderdale MBC. I have over thirty years teaching experience in primary, junior and middle schools.I have always loved teaching children and feel that I can help them develop self-esteem and confidence.

I currently have the following times available:

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings - between 9 am and 11.30 am
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons - between 1.30 and 3.30 pm
Wednesday evenings 6.45 pm onwards

Teaching Experience:

I have a wide background experience in teaching and education, having taught in five different schools in five different English education authorities, before becoming a School Link Officer / School Improvement Partner. I have held posts in large and small schools, with management experience in each, and I have taught children in all age-groups of primary, junior and 8-12 middle schools. I have, at one time or another, held particular responsibility for Curriculum Development, Maths, English, Science, Technology, ICT, PE, Art, French and Special Needs. I was Deputy Headteacher at two widely differing schools before becoming Headteacher of a small primary school. I maintained a teaching commitment of two to three days per week throughout my time as Headteacher of the school.

Tutoring Approach:

I base my approach to tutoring on an understanding of the individual needs of each student. I firmly believe that all children are capable of success. It is the tutor's role to find the most effective way of teaching for each individual child and to have an understanding of each child's preferred learning style. I always begin with an initial diagnosis based on discussion with the parents and an analysis of the student's current ability. Further sessions will concentrate on developing the skills of the student in line with a planned programme of work and targets, which has been agreed with the parents and student. I have a relaxed and friendly style with students but also have high expectations of their progress.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced tutor, based in central Ipswich and I can tutor in students' homes or my home. I really enjoy tutoring as I find that my students make excellent progress which is very rewarding for me, too. Where required, I can provide references from previous students.

Teaching Experience:

I have 25 years' teaching experience (EFL/ESL, German and French) across all levels in colleges, local schools and as a private tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

My greatest strength is my ability to tailor my lessons to match students' exact linguistic needs - whether that means focussing on grammar, speaking ability, exam preparation or a combination of any of these for those who are learning for work and/or leisure purposes.

I was a teacher in a comprehensive school (with focus on languages) in Austria from 2005 - 2014. My subjects are English (as a foreign language), Psychology, Philosophy and Ethics. Apart from teaching there (age group: 10 to 18 years old) I have a lot of experience in private tutoring.
I spent a year in America (Hollins University, Roanoke, VA) as a German teaching assistant where I taught German classes to beginners and advanced students of German.

Tutoring Approach:

I love my job and I love working with children as well as young adults and adults. In my eyes being a teacher is a very fulfilling job as you get so much back from the learners. It is not just the subject that is taught - as a tutor you also have a certain influence on the learners' attitude towards achieving goals in life.
Kids love to learn and want to be challenged and everything should be done to max out the learners' abilities and resources. I would consider my approach as a passionate and very engaging one. I try to find ways of making learning and studying a fun thing to do.
Being a psychotherapist helps me in my - when necessary - sensitive approach to children/youngsters who might have a learning difficulty or other issues.

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:
Stafford resident currently working in a Midlands sixth-form college providing language training to 16-19 year-olds. Professional, a good listener and able to get the best out of my students. I have excellent results from my current students and wish to harness my knowledge again into the field of private tuition.

Teaching Experience:

Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages for over twenty years to students of wide ranging levels (Beginners to A2 Level). A lot of my recent work has been with sixth-form students across the region but prior to that I worked with adults at many establishments on a more group basis. Equally, I have vast experience of working within businesses, providing language tuition at all levels. My teaching has been diverse and very interesting and I always relish a new challenge.

Tutoring Approach:

A tutor has to be able to focus on the individual needs of the student and make a learning session both varied and interesting. He or she must keep up-to-date with modern learning methods and changes in the curriculum. I am able to tailor my sessions according to the particular needs of the individual and be flexible at any time.

Personal Description:
I have a degree in French and German and have taught both to A level over the last 30 years. I am a committed linguist, having a further qualification in translation. I am well travelled and have a deep understanding of the cultures of the Francophonie and the German speaking lands. My personal interests are concentrated in cinema, music, literature and history; all of which I have a good knowledge of with reference to the target language countries.
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:
I have been a private tutor for more than 7 years.

Teaching philosophy has always been important to me, as it demands constant reflection of one's own assumptions and high awareness of the various possible ways to reach genuine philosophical understanding of the world we live in.

Being a native German speaker, I enjoy teaching the language at all levels. During the time I have tutored, mostly, native speakers of English I have learned to deal effectively with the specific difficulties that speakers of English tend to have; for instance, elementary differences in grammar which can appear particularly frightening when trying to take one's first steps; or, higher level problems such as finding the most natural expressions relative to various contextual factors.

Currently, I am studying for a doctoral degree (DPhil) in philosophy at the University of Oxford.

My areas of specialisation are the following:
- History of Analytic Philosophy (esp. Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, Austin, Ryle)
- Methodology (esp. Socratic, Ordinary Language Philosophy, Phenomenology)
- Philosophy of Logic & Mathematics (esp. Argumentation Theory, Foundations of Mathematics)
- Political Philosophy (esp. theory of the state, political economy)

My teaching competence further includes:
- Metaphysics
- Epistemology
- Philosophy of Language
- Philosophy of Mind
- Special authors: Plato/Socrates, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger

Teaching Experience:

Besides having tutored all ages and levels, individually and in groups, I have been a Teaching Assistant and Associate Tutor both at the University of Göttingen and at the University of London, teaching BA and HE Certificate students in the form of tutorials and seminars, primarily in philosophy of language, philosophy of mathematics, history of analytical philosophy and metaphysics.

Tutoring Approach:

Conversation and writing form the central ingredients of every philosophical education, and something very similar holds true of learning a foreign language. Understanding shows itself in the clear and spontaneous expression of the relevant concepts. Written and oral exercise are of equally great importance. I encourage my students to send me a piece of written work (however short) prior to our meetings. This procedure assists the student in thoroughly reflecting their own understanding, as well as the tutor in tailoring their lessons to the student's individual needs and interests, and thus both of them in their joint achievement of the student's wished-for mastery of the relevant skills and materials.

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:
I am a professional stage director originally from Vienna/Austria but based in London for more than 3 years now. I direct plays, musicals and operas for various theatre venues throughout the UK and Europe, and I very much enjoy working creatively with other people. I also lead workshops for all ages and work as an acting teacher and directing consultant.

Apart from theatre and the arts, my greatest passions are foreign cultures and languages. I am a native German speaker and I also speak Spanish, basic Italian and Hungarian, and - of course - English.

Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in tutoring German as a foreign language (one-to-one private teaching) and in leading theatre skills and drama workshops for all ages. I worked with the educational department of the State Opera Stuttgart in Germany for two years, where I led workshops for children (6 - 9 years) and young people (14 - 20 years). These workshops are not only tailored for people who want to pursue a career on stage, but also help to build up self-confidence, improve our social skills and help finding ways to express ourselves.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring is tailored to individual needs of each student because we all have our very own approach to learning. We will discuss requirements and objectives at the beginning of our tutoring, and then work in a positive and encouraging atmosphere to achieve this goal. I am very confident with languages and know about the challenges people face when learning a foreign language - but, even more importantly, I also know how to overcome these difficulties.
