Personal Description:
Hello,

I am Alfiya. I am a professional, qualified and experienced tutor in individual and group Russian teaching. I have been in Edinburgh for almost 11 years and have been a tutor in Russian, freelance interpreter and translator for all this time. During my tutoring career I have assisted almost 250 learners with teaching Russian. I like communicating and meeting new people. I'm friendly, easy-going, open, quick-minded. In my free time I like reading, learning about different cultures, going in for sport, socialising.

Teaching Experience:

I graduated from Irkutsk State Linguistic University in Russia in 1996. Had been teaching English for Russian students and Russian for foreign students at Kazan State University for 15 years (Russia). My specialities are: Russian from Elementary to Advanced.

In 1999 I studied at the Open Society Institute-Samara where I attended Soros Intensive Teacher Training Course for University Instructors in Samara Russia. In 2000 I finished the course in 'Improvement of Professional Skills on Teaching Methodology of Foreign Languages' at Kazan State University in Russia. In 2005 I attended the Conversational Spanish course in Spanish Centre of Education and Culture at Kazan State University. Back to Russia I worked as a senoir lecturer in English and Russian at Kazan State University. I participated as a tutor in English in the Presidential Programme of Russia by giving lectures on Business English for top managers, directors of companies and firms and businessmen to take part in international business as Russia opened up to worldwide and free trade. 10 of my former students went onto internships in Greece, Italy, Denmark, Germany and Japan after finishing this programme. I am the author of four scientific publications in the field of linguistic relations in Russian, English and Tatar.

While living in the UK I have worked as a freelance tutor and translator for Scottish&Newcastle, Scottish Parliament, NHS and Rudolf Steiner School. I am really proud of the fact that among my students are people of different ages, knowledge of Russian and purposes of learning it and who are professionals in different fields for example in language and science teaching, sales and marketing, medical research, social work, to name just a few.

I have completed successfully the HNC and HND Tourism course at Edinburgh college.

Tutoring Approach:

Always try to make students interested in the subject I teach. Create a ftiendly and an encouraging learning environment. Not afraid to praise them even if they do not get immediate good results. Tend to get feedback from them. Plan carefully each lesson. Use the Internet and PC in preparing for lessons. Try to make lessons interesting, various by combining different aspects of learning a language: Grammar, Vocabulary, Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading. Each course that you will attend is tailored to your needs and depends on your level of knowing Russian and your purpose of learning. I teach Russian through the Skype system as well. Each month organise Russian Converstaion Club for my students to help them learn some more about Russia apart from lessons. We discuss various topics in Russian (the topic of each session is given in advance), do different activities based on the theme of the session. The aim of Russian Conversation Club is to improve Russian conversational skills of my students and help them learn more about Russian culture and history.

Teaching Experience:

I am educated to degree standard with a recognised teaching qualification, specialising in Mathematics. I offer Mathematics throughout primary and secondary school to GCSE.I have experience of working in both school and college, though now prefer to concentrate my efforts on 'private tuition' in which I have had considerable success and find stimulating and rewarding. I am fully conversant with the Maths syllabus throughout primary and secondary school and aim to pass this knowledge on to the pupil in a supportive atmosphere, tailoring lessons to the needs of the individual pupil. Several years of experience in Teaching BTEC L3 Engineering.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially find the level of student then according to his/her ability explain go through a couple of examples. Then set task for the pupil any difficulty rectify on the spot. At the end of lesson set home work. If students have a particular difficulty then explain and go through a couple of examples together.

Personal Description:
I am an actor. I studied Modern Languages (French and Spanish) at the University of Durham which included time living and studying in Vigo (Spain) and Clermont-Ferrand (France) and then Acting at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London.

Teaching Experience:

Following completion of my CELTA qualification in Spain in 2007 (which involved teaching adult learners of English), I have variety of experience in teaching from helping fellow students at University, teaching English in a French Lyce and at summer school in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

The important part of tutoring is creating a more individual approach to learning and the subject or subjects. I feel it is important to discover what about the subject interests the tutee or how we can hook the topic to the individual so that you feel the desire to learn more about the subject of your own accord. It is important that learning is fun and not a chore and so, as well as thoroughly working towards any coming assessments, I like to work around the subject to find what it is about the subject is important to you so that the learning becomes grounded in the individual which gives a deeper knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
My interest in music began at primary school. I took instrumental lessons in flute and vocal tuition at the early age of 7 and piano aged 10. After quickly becoming involved in choirs, orchestras and solo performances I managed to achieve two music scholarships into two Independent schools.

Currently aged 21, I am a recent Music graduate from Bath Spa University. My studies included Opera, Singing, Composition, Performance, Musicology and Community Music. I have covered an extensive variety of repertoire, on all instruments, and performed on a number of occasions. Performances have taken place at St. Peters Basilica, The Pantheon, St. Peters Square, Bath Abbey, Wells Cathedral, Corsham Court, St Michaels Without, Worcester Cathedral, Bath Assembly Rooms and low key events such as termly school concerts and voluntary performances to the elderly.

Alongside teaching, I am interested in providing music-making workshops to local schools. I am also in discussion with the Worcestershire communities, to provide singing sessions for the elderly. Singing provides great enjoyment to many people, and working with community choirs is another factor of teaching I am interested in, as choral music is another great passion of mine. I enjoy composing new music and was honoured with having a recent Christmas composition performed in Bath Abbey's carol service.

Teaching Experience:

Alongside my studies, I have taught mainly piano to a handful of students. I enjoy teaching and consequently on the lookout for any new pupils of all abilities, who are seeking tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about teaching, and believe it's important that all lessons are fun and enjoyable for any pupil. Lesson's include a variety of activities in order to aid different learning styles, from listening to cd's, learning basic music theory and using colour to brighten up scores. For young beginners, I think that it is important to keep in touch with parents, so write in a notepad on a weekly basis about what practice is required for improvement.

I am CRB checked and can offer lessons during the daytime, evening or weekends. I am happy to travel to local areas of Redditch. For any further information, please do not hesitate to get in contact.

Personal Description:
I am a lively and enthusiastic graduate, with a first class honours in Engineering from Kingston University. I have always had a passion for teaching, as the younger generation is our future and I believe that it is very important that they are well educated. I know that private tutoring is very useful, as I myself have had it, it helps build confidence in students that don't feel that they are up to speed in school.

I am highly passionate about everything I do, this includes activities such as playing guitar and studying motors. I know that I am an able tutor when it comes to students of any ability.

Teaching Experience:

I started my career tutoring only young children on a casual basis, I now have tutored children professionally. My eldest student was 18, and my youngest was 6. I enjoy teaching children of all ages. I tutor in Maths, English and Spanish, and I am able to tutor in Film Studies too. I have studied all of these subjects myself and have gained respectable grades in them. I believe that having worked in a customer based environment for many years means that I am an easy to talk to person and I found that this is helpful in tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a graduate, and I the way in which I teach is by using practice questions and repetitively going over the necessary work, as I believe that this helps the student grasp the work. I also aim to make sure that the student can understand the work as well as answer questions, as understanding is the most important part.

The lessons would always be well structured. I would begin by going over the facts and showing examples of how things can be solved. I would then go on to give practice questions, with which I would help, and finally I would leave the student with a practice question as homework.

Personal Description:
I did nothing but one-to-one private biology tuition, based in Oxford, for 24 years and was widely regarded as 'Oxford's Premier Biology Tutor'. I have now moved away from Oxford and have been offering my services online only, nationally and worldwide, for the past three years via the medium of Skype and 'Scribblar' - an interactive online whiteboard that is better than face-to-face tuition as there is zero travelling and waiting time and cost and it is more intimate and concentrated than 'in-person' tuition. I charge 60 per hour normally but offer a 10 per hour discount for tuition before 3 pm on weekdays.

Teaching Experience:

27 years (the last three totally online) of one-to-one tuition in A-level, IB and GCSE biology.

Tutoring Approach:

Stick to the specification. Do ALL the past paper questions and go through them with the mark schemes. Take the exam. and get on with your life.

I like to work in a very methodical and structured fashion and not confuse effective work with hard work. The students who say at the end "yes, I learned biology - but, better still I learned how to study" are the ones with whom I know I have really succeeded.

Apart from an internet connection all that you need for tutorials is a thin A4 ring binder with a copy of the specification punched and put into the front and some colored dividers in the back. If you are a retake student I ask you to highlight the specification (in yellow with solid highlighter if you are quite happy with the content; dotted highlighter if you are a bit unhappy with it and no highlighter if you have not done it or have forgotten it). This will tell me where to start and I can estimate to within an hour or so how many lessons will be needed to 'reteach' the syllabus. Effectively I write a textbook for you and give you notes (to be filed in the colored dividers) via e-mail and Scribblar (my interactive online whiteboard) to fill in any gaps in your knowledge. As I cover the specification I highlight my copy in pink so that I can monitor progress. I have CDs of questions that I can post to you that you can work through - each CD is specific to one exam. board and contains not only the most recent AS/A2 papers and mark schemes but also the preceding many years of papers for that board, chopped up into topic headings. So, for example, it will take an hour to 'cover' The Heart and then I'll give you the questions specifically on the heart on that board to do before the next tutorial. It is all very straightforward and actually rather less hard work than doing it in a slapdash, non-systematic fashion. The study skills that you will learn will stand you in good stead throughout life.

I can also advise on coursework/practicals.

Please note that I ONLY tutor online nowadays.

Personal Description:
A Master of Mathematics graduate from UEA in Norwich, with a year studying in Melbourne Australia. I have great experience tutoring with various age groups and personalities.

I have enjoyed tutoring part time and full time for the past few years whilst learning a Postgraduate Diploma course since University. I was subsequently contracted in by a local college to provide individual and group tutoring sessions to underachieving students, during and after school.

Teaching Experience:

I started tutoring GCSE maths in Year 13, providing a very structured learning by my school. The students engaged well and it helped to have people of a similar age that the students could relate to, enabling a more relaxed learning atmosphere. I also informally helped peers of various levels whilst at university, maths students but also engineering and foundation levels. When my services were required in a particular area, then they asked for help on short notice.

On top of this I've been tutoring over the past 4 years, usually working 7 days a week from the new year onward. Peak hours ranged in excess of 40hrs of tutoring for several months. I've therefore assessed the likely weaknesses of a student and have already provided and perfected methods of explanation.

Tutoring Approach:

Can look at casual tutoring of areas of difficulty, or can do more structured learning of a curriculum, either intense learning or weekly troubleshooting. I've established good quality material for any level. Plenty of students just require good material and direction for their efforts.

The first meeting will be free with the aim of getting to know one another and the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, and at what pace the student requires. At which point a structured plan of action can be drawn up. In some cases the tutee may lack the confidence in areas, but can in fact do what's required. Even a casual troubleshooting session every now and then can set their worries at rest.

Should extracurricular material be required or wanted then I'll be happy to provide. This material might not be hard for the tutee, but will help link in various areas of mathematics and will require a little thought about the patterns seen.

Personal Description:
I am a professional and experienced qualified teacher who is passionate about helping students succeed and achieve their potential. I have experience in tutoring on a 1 to 1 basis across all age ranges.

Teaching Experience:

I have over four years experience teaching languages in state secondary schools working with students aged 11-18. I have detailed knowledge of French and Spanish GCSE and NVQ syllabuses and specifications, having taught and examined these courses. I also have experience of teaching A level and primary languages. I have worked with students from a wide range of backgrounds with a variety of special educational needs. I have studied languages to degree level and lived, worked and taught abroad in both France and Spain.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a big believer in personalised learning therefore I like to tailor a programme of study to meet your needs. Each learner is different and so it is important to adapt and use a range of teaching styles and methods to find the ones that work for you. Where my tuition is supporting you in your study of languages at secondary school, I like to ensure that what we do builds on, and links to, what you have been studying in class. Above all I believe learning should be fun and relevant to you and so I put this at the heart of my teaching.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my undergraduate studies with a First in History at the university of Kent. I have always been committed to my academic career, being amongst the highest-attaining students at both school and university. I am a voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction; aside from this I enjoy films, rugby union and competitive gaming.

I enjoy helping people to learn and develop, and would be happy to help tutees with specific exams or assignments, to provide more general advice on techniques and skills, help tutees achieve a deeper understanding of a subject or offering. I have experience of proofreading and editing at university level.

Teaching Experience:

I attended sixth-form at Chancellor's School in Brookmans Park, which ran a programme in which students assisted with the teaching of a lower-school class, as well as a "buddy system", where sixth-formers mentored and assisted 3 new students with transition to senior school.

At university I strove to take an active part in my education in both university-organised and extra-curricular activities. I was frequently commended for my contributions to seminars and I often joined study-groups on my own initiative, helping others with their understanding of the various courses and with exam technique. I also frequently aided other students by proof-reading and editing their essays and assignments, to help them better apply the technique and style that was needed to attain the highest grades.

I am the Vice-President of ISHA (the International Students of History Association). This organisation arranges events to bring history students from across Europe together; participants take part in workshops, presenting papers then hosting a debate on the points raised by their work. I enjoyed these events immensely, not only for the opportunity to learn from and to teach students from varied backgrounds with differing approaches towards the study of history, but also for the support and the opportunity for development that they offer to students. I also helped edit ISHA's journal 'Carnival'. As well as giving me valuable skills in teaching, discussion and presentation of ideas, ISHA also gave me valuable experience of academic interaction with people for whom English is not their first language, teaching me to to alter my vocabulary and forms of expression to better convey ideas.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on my own experiences of studying and helping other students at school and university. I aim to teach exam technique and preparation advice, alongside essay-writing skills and time management. I have broad knowledge of English and History and can supplement other teaching to create a strong base of understanding to help tutees achieve desired grades. I also feel it is worth-while to go beyond the syllabus, as unusual, but pertinent, information can be the determining factor in pushing a candidate up a grade barrier.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying for a Masters Degree at the University of Bedfordshire in Theatre Research having completed my undergraduate in Theatre and Professional Practice. My area of expertise involves the Representation of Trans in Political Image based theatre, as well as adapting text for stage.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at a few different places during my undergraduate degree at different age ranges including, Lower School students age 5-8, Secondary school students from 12-16 and also A-level students. Following on from this I have also tutored students who are currently in their final year of their undergraduate course.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very simple, I guide my students but it is down to you to lead the way and come up with the answers and the creative ideas yourself. With Theatre and Drama there is no right and wrong, so you can't get things wrong, the important thing is to try out different ideas and see which idea works best for the topic you are dealing with.

Personal Description:
I am Dimitra, born in Piraeus, Greece. I am qualified teacher with an enormous passion about teaching and learning, excellent communication skills, ethos, and a love for continuous professional development. I hold a Bachelor degree in History & Archaeology, a master in Psychology of Education and Educational Practice and another master in Applied Human Rights. I have also attended vocational programmes in Special Education and Counselling and I have been trained in Safeguarding.
I am an experienced teacher with 11 years of teaching experience and my students have always acknowledged my commitment and high standards that boost progression and are translated into results.
I am keen to work with pupils of all ages and background and offer everyone the support and necessary help to achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching career began back in 2005. I have worked as a private tutor but also in mainstream schools and I have experience from international schools overseas and from Academies in the UK.
I have worked in Greece for 9 years as a Classics and Humanities teacher, preparing students for the national exams for admission to Higher Education. I have taught Latin, Classical Greek, Modern Greek and History.
I have also been employed in two Academies in Sheffield and Doncaster respectively teaching History up to GCSE and I have been mentored by high calibre practitioners with enormous teaching experience.
In addition, I was till recently the Head teacher of the Sheffield Greek School, where I taught Modern Greek up to GCSE and A level to students with various linguistic backgrounds and academic goals.
During my tenure, I have worked with pupils with learning difficulties and hearing impairment.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are highly stimulating and engaging. All the lessons are planned using the constructivist theory and the scaffolding principle where prior knowledge is deployed and used as the foundation to built upon. My lessons are challenging, age appropriate and differentiated to meet the needs of every individual student. Formative assessment and revision are used frequently to ensure any gaps and/or misunderstandings are dealt with appropriately and promptly and students have the time to consolidate the new knowledge. My students are always engaged in the learning process and are encouraged to become independent learners, but also see value in what they are doing. Various assessment strategies are used to ensure progress. Last but not least, my lessons are fun! Even when I use socratic questioning, my students will enjoy their learning and will be looking forward to their next lesson.
