Personal Description:
I am passionate about teaching languages, mostly orientals, and also coaching martial arts and self defence. I coach the EWTO-WingTsun 梁挺詠春拳.

I have been always curious to learn the most popular foreign languages useful in Europe to understand what was said around me at all the times and to be able to communicate for business purposes with people when abroad; well... I can help you! Contact me!

Or perhaps you have chosen MFL at school and need a bit of a boost for your revision before the exams??

Do you want to strengthen your CV by showing your linguistic competence in a demanding market? I can help you with Mandarin or Japanese!

If on the contrary you need to learn how to protect your self with something really different; I have been teaching WingTsun and Escrima in Italy for 2 years and in Macclesfield (Cheshire-UK) for 1 year. I keep travelling south London, and to West/South Europe, to receive updated training and attend special seminars.

In the first 6 to 8 weeks of the beginners program you'll learn the basics for a proactive and "pre-emptive" self defence and to deal with the most "common" types of attacks. This is the Blitz-Defence program.

Afterward you start a more sophisticated training program where you learn to deal with an aggressor in a less violent way by using our unique tactile skills training method.

I can assure you, you will terminate every lesson by learning something new and useful! All I need is your concentration.

Teaching Experience:

Currently tutoring Italian (advanced level) and Japanese (basic level) in all the 4 skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking).

I have lectured comparative martial art's cultures at the University of Suwon, College of Physical Education (Republic of Korea).

Translating Keith R Kernspecht: "Kampflogik3" from German into Italian.

July 2013 Swinton (Manchester)
I have been tutoring in Mandarin to one of the school kids acting as the main character of the TV program "The 4 o'clock Club- CBBC". Program included conversational repetition of the program he studied at grammar school: Introducing your self, talk about daily activities, hobbies and preferences.

January 2012 - PRESENT: I have been teaching Italian language since January 2012 on 1-2-1 base and via skype when I am abroad.

February 2012 - April 2012: I taught Japanese language for absolute beginners via skype.

April 2010 - February 2012: I taught at The Mill Languages School, in Macclesfield town centre: Mandarin, Japanese, German. In particular I have taught German language to a tailored group to refresh their skills.

August 2015 - PRESENT. Tutoring Japanese language to beginner level via skype. My student is a primary school teacher who is planning to have a work experience in Japan. Focusing on oral linguistic skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am based in Macclesfield and I teach in an informal and yet methodical way; I can teach colloquial and formal languages.

As for WingTsun 梁挺詠春拳 and Escrima (weaponry) I teach privately and/or classes or different venues.
Each 1-2-1 class has to be booked.

Personal Description:
I am a Japanese national who has completed eight Japanese language beginners courses (10 weeks each) as a language instructor at colleges based in Liverpool and Manchester. In a formal course review exercise, I received excellent ratings from my college students with respect to the various teaching components of the course.

I am adept at recognising how best to target my teaching approach, particularly with respect to students who have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language using my fluency in verbal and written English and Japanese.

My teaching experience includes 18 months as a language instructor to college students in Japan, in one-to-one, and group teaching as an employee at a language school. In addition, I was employed in the Japan university sector as a translator of English to Japanese and vice versa, and as a business translator involving UK and Japanese companies. I therefore have language teaching experience acquired over several years in various settings.

My doctoral degree is sociology-based supporting the teacher-student interaction for making solid progress in learning.

Teaching Experience:

80 weeks in beginners Japanese at language colleges in Liverpool and Manchester
12 months providing English language instruction to college students in Japan
18 months English-Japanese language translator at a Japanese University
12 months in organising and translating and interpreting for two Japanese cultural exchange trips
Over 5 years in translating and interpreting various Japanese/UK business people
Online tutoring for 30months both in groups and individuals. HD video camera/microphone.
UK-Japanese business language interpreter and translator
Multiple students taught in private sessions from a wide background that includes, teachers, business professionals, university and college students, and other backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide personal tutoring and group tutoring as required in a large classroom specially set-up for teaching with an approachable and friendly style to engage students in fully comprehending an unfamiliar language. Tuition is provided in verbal and written Japanese using language props as an aid to understanding, with textbooks and specialist Hiragana teaching materials. I have excellent whiteboard writing skills and I am comfortable at teaching in both formal and less formal surroundings. Tuition can be arranged on a regular or irregular timetable according to the needs of the particular student(s).

Do you want to start making real progress?

Personal Description:
Quality and cost-efficient tutoring for entrance and final exams, essays, dissertations, and hobby learning. Professional tutor with a university degree in teaching and over 20 years of experience.

Educated in the UK, Japan, Russia, Holland and Thailand, including a scholarship from the Japanese Ministry of Education. Currently a doctoral researcher at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught for over 20 years. I teach Sociology, Anthropology and the Japanese language for A-levels and GSCE, and I also mentor undergrads, MA`s and PhD students. I help with essays, exams, dissertation writing, managing studies schedule, research techniques, etc.

I am also a certified Cross-Cultural Trainer, I coach business people on the practical aspects of doing business with the Japanese.

Tutoring Approach:

In my teaching approach, I make sure that you gain a solid understanding of the fundamentals, ground-level theory and research methods in Social Sciences. This will enable you to tackle any exam question or essay topic with confidence and excellent results. Subjects covered: Anthropology, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Media and Communication Studies, Area Studies, Psychosocial Studies, etc.

For language learning, I have a sure-fire time-tested approach that has served me and my students well for the last 20 years: comprehensive learning materials to make sure all bases are covered, a study schedule with clear goals to gauge your own progress, and tailor-made supervision to help you keep up with the ups and downs of language learning.

I coach undergrads, Master`s and PhD students for essays, dissertation and exams. That includes mentoring and advising throughout the whole process, i.e., how to get started, how to make a writing schedule and keep to it, how to meet the submission deadline without driving yourself crazy, etc.

I also give practical advice on a lot of technicalities and fine points: from looking for literature, to managing bibliography to really whatever question you may have. The study skills I help you acquire will serve you for the rest of your life. As a psychological counsellor, I give priority to listening and helping people with emotional security issues.

Personal Description:
I began having Japanese lessons at school when I was eleven years old and continued to study the language for a further seven years. I completed GCSE Japanese- A* and GCE A Level Japanese-B before coming to the University of Leeds to study BA Japanese and Philosophy.
I have been lucky enough to have visited Osaka as an exchange student during my A-Level studies and also to have co-hosted an exchange student. These experiences were key in making me want to pursue learning Japanese as well as teach others about the language and culture.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught beginner Japanese lessons in primary schools and at my previous school supported secondary students with their Japanese studies. During my time in Japan I was able to assist Japanese friends at school with their learning of English as well as teach my host family key English phrases.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning a new language should be interactive and enjoyable. I encourage students to get stuck in and be prepared to learn from mistakes in order to develop a thorough understanding and sound knowledge of Japanese. The benefit of studying Japanese creatively and through the use of games, flashcards and evaluative quizzes is a relaxed approach to study and in my experience, steady achievement.

Like any language, when learning Japanese, practice makes perfect so lessons are at a pace ideal for the student in order to maximize progress. A balanced approach to both writing, reading and speaking are essential so I am keen to deliver a variety of exercises in lessons.

Most importantly I want students to enjoy learning Japanese as much as I love to teach it.

PRIVATE CHINESE (MANDARIN/CANTONESE) LESSONS WITH QUALIFIED NATIVE TUTOR (GCSE/AS/AL/ADULT LEARNER)

Hello and Nihao! My name is James. I have realised that Chinese has become a more and more popular language worldwide recently due to the increased economic activities China does with the rest of the world. It is the most widely spoken language in the world (approx. 1.3 billion Chinese speakers in the world). It is also one of the six official languages in the UN. It is now a trend that in order to be a successful business person or even a professional in other aspects, it is important to acquire the ability to speak Chinese and to understand the Chinese culture.

As a Chinese Teacher at a private boarding school (Trinity School in Teignmouth, Devon), I would like to promote the Chinese language and culture as much as I can. I am now offering private Chinese lessons at a learner-friendly price in the Torbay and South Devon area. The price is as below:

Personal Description:
I am a Japanese language teacher, a native speaker who studied for a bachelor degree in art in Portland, Oregon. I have lived in Tokyo and Osaka where I worked in the fashion industry and import/export business. I now live in England with my husband and two children.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching Japanese to both adults and children one-to-one and in small groups. A typical lesson will include practice of general or topic focused conversations, related grammar study, key vocabulary usage and pronunciation. As an award winning student of calligraphy, my speciality is teaching the Japanese writing system.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a patient and friendly manner allowing students to develop at their own pace while giving lots of encouragement to make sure students achieve their goals.

Personal Description:
I have lived in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom since December 2009. I am originally from Kumamoto, where I completed a training course at the EII Japanese Language Centre. I have now been teaching Japanese to students of all levels for nearly ten years.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching Japanese in Kumamoto, Japan 10 years ago. I teach both children and adults and from absolute beginners to advanced level students. After moving to England I've been teaching from my home.

I also have 8 years experience of teaching online using Skype and an interactive whiteboard for students all over the world. I have worked for a major Japanese online school for 2 years.

I have taught students who aim to take the JLPT exam, the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (from the1st to 5th grade), and who are studying for The Duke of Edinburgh award.

I have also helped business people who are planning to work for Japanese companies.

My lesson fees are as follows:

Face-to-face lessons

Private Lessons : 25 for a one hour individual lesson (at my home)

Group Lessons
2 people : 20 per person for a one hour lesson (at my home)
3 or more people : Please enquire about availability (at a public venue)
3 people : 18 per person for a one hour lesson
4-5 people : 15 per person for a one hour lesson
6-8 people : 13 per person for a one hour lesson

You can take group lessons with your friends or family members. Discounted lesson rates are available if you can collect a group of between 2 and 8 people.

Online lessons

Private lessons :
20 for a 50 minute individual lesson
25 for a 60 minute individual lesson

Group Lessons
2 people : 18 per person for a 50 minute lesson / 20 per person for a 60 minute lesson
3-5 people : 15 per person for a 50 minute lesson / 17 per person for a 60 minute lesson
6-8 people : 13 per person for a 50 minute lesson / 15 per person for a 60 minute lesson

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by introducing essential sentence patterns and teaching how to use them in practise conversations. I use role-play to make the conversations real and teach how to speak Japanese naturally. You will soon realise my lessons are completely different from normal language studies at school and find that my method is both practical and effective.

Personal Description:
I am 25 years old and have worked and travelled extensively in both France and Japan for lengthy periods of time. I am a university graduate of foreign languages, having studied French and Japanese at Hull University. Having just returned from two years working in Japan and the Philippines as a Scuba Diving Instructor, I am looking to move back to teaching languages whilst I am at home in the UK again with my family. I am a very easy going, bubbly and personable individual who is very enthusiastic about languages, and firmly enjoys passing on language skills to other people. Whether you are a complete beginner or looking to expand your language skills, I am happy to undertake teaching at all levels to accommodate your needs. If you are a parent whose child is looking to improve their language skills at either GCSE or A Level grade, then I am confident I can help them to achieve that, having done so many times in the past. I have an extensive knowledge of GCSE and A Level grade boundaries and requirements, and can assist your child to earn the grade that they desire to achieve.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English as a foreign language in the Philippines at an international primary school, and I have worked as an assistant French teacher for one year at a Yorkshire secondary school, teaching students aged 11-18, including GCSE and A level candidates. During my time as an assistant French teacher, I also offered after school French and Japanese tutoring to interested pupils who wanted to join our little languages club. Finally, I have experience in teaching English as a foreign language to children living in the UK, in addition to teaching English to Japanese people whilst I was living in Japan.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very varied approach to tutoring. Depending on the student's capabilities, personality and confidence, I am very flexible and adapt lessons and activities to suit the individuals learning style. Usually within the first lesson I am able to gauge the capacity for learning and the preferred way of soaking up the information.

My favourite tutoring style with languages is to use the language during the lesson as much as possible as this makes the student much more used to hearing the language and thus improves fluency much quicker. Furthermore I prefer to build grammar up along with vocabulary slowly, or quickly, depending on the student's learning preferences, like building blocks, while enforcing language use and practice as much as possible. Repetition is key, which I incorporate into lesson plans time after time, without boring the student or exhausting the language.

It entirely depends upon what the student also wants to get out of my lessons. If it is for enjoyment, then my teaching style will vary greatly differently to a school pupil whose aim is to improve their GCSE or A Level grade. Once I know the goals and aims of the student, my tutoring approach will be set in stone to ensure that those goals and aims are achieved, all while having as much fun as possible. After all, languages are a form of art and should be enjoyed as well!

Personal Description:
Hi I'm a postgraduate student studying Educational Studies in University of Glasgow. Both fluent in Mandarin and English, and can teach basic Japanese. I'm very passionate in teaching and helping. I can play Chinese instrument Erhu as well.

Teaching Experience:

3 years of teaching experiences in China.
Currently teaching 2 students.

Tutoring Approach:

I'll make students speak Chinese in a right tone and make them know how to start daily conversations.
I have my own special way of teaching Chinese and will share my experience of learning another language so that it can help with the Chinese learning.
For Japanese learning, students can manage hiragana and katakana well, and learn how to use Japanese to communicate.

Personal Description:
Science exam specialist. I can guarantee rapid improvements in both subject mastery and exam technique.
This ability translates into improved scoring in other subjects.

Teaching Experience:

Over twenty years teaching experience including specialist Science exam coaching.
I am an official AQA Physics and Biology GCSE examiner with great knowledge of the examination system.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe focussing on fundamental concepts and skills helps students to grow in confidence and realise they are capable of achieving much more than they initially believed.
Practicing past papers is a very effective way to both learn the target content and to learn how to read questions carefully and answer them effectively.

Personal Description:
I am a native Greek speaker, having been born and raised in Greece. I had an inclination and passion towards foreign languages from a young age, which resulted into my learning English and French as a primary and secondary school student and Japanese and a little Korean as a high school and university student. I have a BA in English Language and Literature from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece and I am currently studying for my MSc in Comparative Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I also hold several foreign language certificates.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously worked as a tutor of English as a Foreign Language (EFL), teaching mostly primary and secondary school children as well as preparing adults for English language exams and certificates. I have also taught Greek to foreigners and elementary Japanese.

Tutoring Approach:

I always tailor my lessons according to my students' needs, strengths and weaknesses. I like using textbooks as a base for my teaching but multimedia and extra material is an integral part of my lessons, since they not only enhance the learning experience but they also keep the learners' interest intact and help them attain some original contact with their target language.

Personal Description:
My name is Jasmine, I am 19 years old, and I am currently studying TESOL and Japanese at York St John University. My career goal is to become a translator, and I am working hard to help that happen. My hobbies are reading, writing, and music, which is also how I spend most of my free time (that and running around after my two younger brothers!).

N.B.
As my home address is in Cornwall, and my university address is in York, I am available to tutor in Cornwall during the holidays, and in York during term time.

Teaching Experience:

Though I have had no professional experience tutoring, during secondary school I was a mentor for helping younger children with reading and writing. I also have several language partners that I help to enhance their English skills as well as correcting their grammar. My university course includes the TESOL certificate, which specialises in teaching English as a second language, improving my teaching skills.

Tutoring Approach:

As stated previously, while I have never professionally tutored, I think this role would be good for me. I am patient and persevering, and understand through my own experiences that it is not always possible to learn through one method, but instead, there are many ways to learn new information that is tailored to your needs. While I am young meaning I may have less experience in this field, I also think an advantage of my age is that I am very open minded.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Hannah and I am a graduate of Newcastle University in English Linguistics, French and Japanese. My major interests include travelling, using the languages I already speak and beginning to learn new languages, as well as to discover new countries' cultures and history. I also love learning about the history of language, its roots and links with other languages.

I have lived for 10 months in Kyōto and in Paris, studying Japanese and teaching English to French children; whilst there, I revelled in the discovery of new places, people and lifestyle, which for me make any new experience extraordinary!

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching English to two young French children in Paris shortly after I graduated; my responsibilities included collecting them from school, looking after them at home and engaging them in activities and exercises to improve their English skills. Over the months I spent with them, I saw a distinct progression in their comprehension and their level of spoken English, as well as in their overall behaviour and discipline.

I have several students taking weekly private lessons in Japanese and French; I also teach two Japanese classes per week at a primary school in Durham.

I have taught Shotokan karate to students of all levels and ages for 11 years; I began as an assistant instructor several months after I started training, at the age of 12, and have since become an instructor of full classes of adults and children in our club and of children aged 5-11 in primary schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I deliver high quality, well planned and well structured classes for students of all abilities to children and adults of any age. Whether you wish to brush up on your language skills in preparation for a trip, to support a language course at school, college or university or to fulfil an interest in the culture of a country speaking one of these languages, I will provide a personalised programme of study which I will accompany you in completing. Your tailored language classes will be put together based on your own current level, your preferred teaching methods and your learning style in addition to exactly what you hope to achieve by studying a language with me.

Personal Description:
I'm an independent consultant, trainer and facilitator, working mainly in the business world. I design and run learning workshops in collaborative decision-making and lean thinking for companies of different sizes. I also facilitate Open Space events, inviting large numbers of people to co-create new ways forward in self-organised events where all the participants are at the centre and not a menu of speakers. These are like 1-or 2-day Hackathons, within organisations, such as Innovation Hackathon, Greenup Hackathon and Reinventing Work Hackathon. I also run similar events on demand within communities, in order to bring out engagement, inviting members of communities to co-create and co-determine aspects of their community.

In the business world I'm a bit of a change maverick, wanting to create a better world, and especially better workplaces where people can thrive and grow, rather the usual drudgery of work. Organisations benefit from that too from become eco-systems that thrive innovatively. I learned my 'participative' 'tools' from many years of experimentation and from working in different parts of the world. I have lived in North America, Europe and in Asia, and have travelled way beyond that.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my early teaching experience started with 13 years' English teaching to mainly corporate clients in Japan. I consider myself a highly experienced, versatile and resourceful former Language Teacher (TEFL), Tutor and Coach with further background as Intercultural Consultant. I have extensive experience teaching English in Asia, with expertise in accelerated learning techniques (e.g. suggestopedia) and Peer-based learning through Self-Organising Learning Environments.

I have taught classes and individuals at various levels and for various purposes. I have also done of business English and specialised English for professionals. While I have more experience working with groups than individuals, even as business coach and corporate trainer I have worked most of my life in an educational learning environment. The most important, however, is not about teaching, but about the student learning; it is hence imperative to start from the perspective of what the learner actually needs and working from there. I pride myself in being able to design courses and tuition tailor-made to the specific needs of the learners.

Tutoring Approach:

Unless I am teaching towards academic aims (e.g. GCSE support), I view language as something that is used to communicate with, it is something one does, we do not normally learn a foreign language just for the sake of passive knowledge. To me therefore it is far more important to use the language than just learn it. My approach to tutoring therefore is quite action oriented, we do things with the language, and just like children (who did not learn their native language from a book) language is always used in a context, so it's important to provide contextual clues when introducing new language.

I emphasize engagement and participation a lot, with a strong focus on real communication (rather than practiced communication where possible). Very early on I introduce meta-language, which is language about language (e.g. could you repeat that?, What do you mean by....?, Why do I say ... and not ...?), because this the only kind of real communication that happens in a language class, and thus it is a real opportunity to use real communication. But above all, language should be fun, learn by doing and lively, and my interactive approach always works towards that
