Personal Description:
Born in London, I was educated in the UK and Hong Kong (where I also taught in schools). I currently reside in Oxfordshire with my husband, where we both enjoy the outdoors in the Cotswolds.

Teaching Experience:

I have many years' experience in primary and secondary schools and home education in the UK, Hong Kong and Germany.

I teach in a school in Burford, Oxfordshire, and also provide home tuition to primary and secondary pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

To encourage your child to gain confidence and enjoy learning, I draw on my personal warmth and humour in lessons. I aim to help your child gain good exam results through:

lively engagement with your child's creative intelligence
continuous assessment and feedback of your child's progress
learning using a wide variety of resources

I believe learning comes alive through building on the child's immediate experiences and their curiosity for the world around them.

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Mark and I have lived in Belfast for 20 years. I have always loved mathematics, and loved learning more about it. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject to you and help you maximise your potential. If you're coming up to major exams, I can help you get the best grade possible for you!

Teaching Experience:

I have lectured in Queen's University for 10 years, and have been teaching others mathematics for longer. My private students have done well with my support, and I can bring the best out of you too.

Tutoring Approach:

For some people maths is easy and enjoyable - you just need help sharpening up your examination skills and revising in a new way to get a top grade.

For other people maths is a challenge - you get the general idea but need help understanding some principles, and certainly need to practice in order to get the grade you deserve.

I have worked with both types of people for years, and I can work with you! I offer one-to-one tutorial sessions, in my home or yours, backed up by email and telephone support where needed.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for reading this synopsis:

I speak six languages and have been teaching people of all ages and levels now since 2000. My level of success can be equated to the continuous success of my students for sixteen years.

I teach Portuguese, Spanish, English for Foreigners, Italian and French as a fluent native speaker because I have lived in the countries where these languages are spoken.

My degree is in Modern Languages and Linguistics, which means I also edit and translate work into various languages. My MA is in Linguistics and I have worked for years now with well known multinationals and celebrities.

Teaching Experience:

1994 - Taught English for Foreigners and Spanish at the well known Brazilian University of Campinas. I did this whilst doing a year abroad in Brazil to master Portuguese. My students where all faculty deans of that university.
1995-1997 - Taught English, Spanish and Portuguese in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Apple Language School
1997-1998 - Taught at Berlitz in Panama, Republic of Panama also in Quito, Ecuador, and Manchester University.
1999-2003 - Self-employed Language Tutor - teaching individuals and well known organisations such as Delloitte, Mercedes Benz, Unibanco, Santander, Lloyds TSB, DLA Piper International, Volkswagen, PwC and many others.
2003-2004 - Post- Graduate Degree in Modern Languages - Education - Taught at several secondary schools.
2005 - To Date - Have taught several students as a private tutor to pass all exams from GCSEs to Graduate degrees and Doctorates. I have also taught several well known footballers and celebrities.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach as I would like to be taught - By someone experienced who knows what systems work in a secure and fun environment.
I mastered new languages many years ago, but in order to succeed I had to try several systems before perfecting what I now offer - I understand that everyone has different needs so I simply adapt to your needs and make sure that you enjoy what you learn... and learn a lot.

Personal Description:
I am a passionate teacher born and raised in Spain. I think everyone should be able to develop his/her skills, and this is why I decided to be a teacher. I have been teaching since I started my degree, as I find it really rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher and Spanish native speaker. I love to teach since I started my degree, and I have been doing that since then. I have worked as a Spanish teacher at the University of Oviedo (Spain) and in a High School in Spain as well.

At the same time, I helped people who could not afford official classes to pass DELE exams with success.
For this reason, I adapt every lesson to the needs of my students.

No matter if you need Spanish for children, beginner, intermediate, advanced, day-to-day conversational Spanish, etc. I can help you.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a wide range of different materials to help my students to approach to Spanish, since there is not only one way to speak it. I also prepare complete courses depending on your needs, I work with small groups or one to one, and I provide all the materials with no extra cost.

Your level will be assessed free of charge on the first session, so we can start at the most suitable point.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a final year student studying Wildlife Conservation student at the University of Kent. My background is in the earth and life sciences but more recently I have incorporated social sciences to a much larger extent.
My teaching approach is to get to know my pupil and how they learn. From this I hope to be able to maximise learning potential while also maintaining interest. My approach centres around the benefits that such a individually catered programme can provide such as the degree of flexibility.

Teaching Experience:

None to date outside of family and friends.

I like to engage my pupil with a flexible and adaptive method of teaching that helps them to maintain interest and focus and is catered to the way in which they learn.

Personal Description:
I am British but have spent most of my life in Latin America. I resettled in the UK in 2015 and currently live in Birmingham. I hold a PhD in Ethnic and African Studies from a prestigious Brazilian university. In order to be accepted by the PhD programme, I had to demonstrate exceptional fluency in Portuguese, both written and oral. My BA in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (First/Hons) amply qualifies me to tutor in English literature.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently tutoring in Portuguese, English Language and Literature (GCSE, A-Level and Graduate) and English as a Second Language (ESOL) in Birmingham and nearby cities. I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Brazil for many years. I have also lectured in English and Translation at a Brazilian university.

Tutoring Approach:

I always attempt to establish a rapport with my students to keep them at ease, focussing on the positive before going on to point out areas where they could improve. I am aware that, especially when learning a foreign language, students can be extremely sensitive about making mistakes, so I use methods that are designed to be non-threatening and non-critical, but always constructive.

Personal Description:
Playing the Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo and Harmonica and creating traditional Fine Art have been and are a major part of my life. Much as I would have very much liked to do, I never had the opportunity to become a Professional Performing Musician or a fully Professional Fine Artist . I have performed in public of course, and held exhibitions, but very rarely on a professional/paid basis. I have been a guitarist for over 45 years and an artist for 23 years

I studied art at the Thanet Schools of Art & the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design (the same College David Bowie went to)
for two and a half years. After that I had a twenty two year absence from art.

A change came in 1992: It was during a period of Long Term Unemployment. Whilst signing on at my local Job Center, I volunteered to go on an "Employment Action Course. In a sense this was a form of working for your benefit and was paid an extra 10 per week on top of Job Seekers Allowance. Hopefully this would have lead to work prospects, ideally in Art or The Arts. I had to report to a work placement provider who asked me what skills I had, to which I said "Art" and was assigned to a local Community Arts Center based in Gillingham Kent and appointed as a publicity designer and resources worker.

Whilst in my publicity artist role I was introduced to the then K.C.C Arts Promotion Officer Jim Shean who took interest in my art work and arranged an exhibition hire space without charge at my local library, the event was covered on Radio Kent's "Scene & Heard" Program. I also contacted the local junior school where my children attended and made a proposition if I could exhibit there. In return the headmaster asked my to come into the School twice a week and teach the children art, this featured in a local press article.

Over the years from 1992 to date I have held numerous small one man exhibitions in the Medway Towns and a little further afield and have manged to sell some (just enough to pay a few bills). In the last year or so I have been a little inactive in my art but hope to resolve that soon.

Teaching Experience:

16 years freelance one to one teaching of Guitar - Mandolin - Banjo - Ukulele - Harmonica and Basic Keyboard
Currently a Children s reading assistant for the Beanstalk Charity Project

Tutoring Approach:

Being a music teacher has at least allowed me to put my love of music to a measure of professional application, perhaps to make up for the lost opportunity and time. Being paid is a motivation, but far more importantly teaching others to play and create music is much more enjoyable, I have often gone overtime on my lessons and never charged extra. Also to be considered is the experience gained over many decades of musical struggling, mistakes, embarrassing moments during performance and how to overcome them that I can impart to my pupils. I also look forward to the pupil making sufficient progress so that I can have the pleasure to "Jam" with them.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in Biology and Earth Sciences but I am also passionate about Greek language. I love working with children of any age as well as with adults of any age. The ancient greek philosophers said "Γηράσκω αεί Διδασκόμενος" which means "I Always Learn as I Age." Education is both intellectually and morally intertwined with self- esteem and discipline. My goal is to focus on each student's abilities and help him/her grow to their full potential!

Teaching Experience:

I am a Greek native speaker and I teach Greek because Greek history and language are my great passions.
In parallel, having a PhD in Biology, gives me the opportunity to teach and supervise students of all ages and educational backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach:

As a biology and Earth science teacher, I can richly enhance pupils' understanding of themselves and the world around them, and set them up to succeed in a diverse range of important careers. As a Greek language tutor, I love working with children of any age as well as with adults of any age. The ancient greek philosophers said "Γηράσκω αεί Διδασκόμενος" which means "I Always Learn as I Age." Education is both intellectually and morally intertwined with self- esteem and discipline. My goal is to focus on each student's abilities and help him/her grow to their full potential!

Personal Description:
I am a highly qualified maths and physics tutor with a keen grasp of the subject knowledge and a thorough understanding of the practice of learning. I am professional in the way I treat my clients and provide an expert tutoring service. My previous experiences allow me to connect with a wide range of pupils, allowing the kind trust required for a positive learning environment.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a maths teacher in 2004 and began tutoring in 2006. Since then I have taught students from age 9 to 40, and taught primary level up to first year degree maths and physics. In 2016 I became an examiner for OCR, marking exam papers.

Tutoring Approach:

I mainly seek to fill in the gaps in students' knowledge in the subject, using and teaching, techniques and methods for absorbing subject knowledge, and passing exams.
I build a solid relationship with the pupil and create an atmosphere conducive to learning. I tailor the structure of the lessons to the individual needs of the student both at a long term level and within each lesson. We might work through topics that the student is weak in, or start new topics, review and practice exams, or discus meta-exam technique, as required by the situation. I follow the National Curriculum closely, and make heavy use of specimen and past exam papers for GCSE/A-Level candidates.

Personal Description:
I am currently a Nursing student in my 2nd year of study. I finished my A Levels in 2013 and spent two years working in a supermarket and Science Lab.
I play team sports when I am also in charge of charity work and a qualified first aider.

Teaching Experience:

I previously tutored science up to GCSE level while studying for my A Level examinations. Then after finishing school tutored many other core subjects at varying standards.
When coming to university I continued tutoring maths and basic study skills

Tutoring Approach:

I believe tutoring should be individualised to the student and will take the time to adapt to their needs. I believe the best way to learn is to do and that everyone can learn when they feel confident.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and enthusiastic coach, and I believe everyone has the ability to achieve their personal best in their chosen subject. One to one tutoring can be an enormous help, because it provides the key to identify and unlock the students potential in a supportive and positive environment.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating with a Diploma in Art & Design from Bourneville Art School, I then studied Philosophy &Theology, lived in Paris and Vienna and spent some time working as an independent artist. Later I went into business and was a successful Operations Manager, Trainer and Coach in a number of sectors.

Recently I have concentrated on my artistic career and currently have over 8,000 followers on social media.

I am currently available and welcome enquiries from individuals seeking to develop their skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in working with each individual, getting to know them and identifying their potential. Together we can then agree on a a development pathway that enables them to realise their journey and reach their goals.

Personal Description:
I'm a linguistic and enjoy languages. Speak English, German and French fluently and can do business in Japanese. I have lived in North America, Europe and Asia and enjoy understanding different cultures and languages.

In business 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 run cross-cultural simulations to help people experience and learn how to cope working with different cultures.

Teaching Experience:

Most of my early teaching experience started with 15 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 a lot of business English and specialised English for professionals. While I have a great deal of experience working with groups, I have also worked in educational learning environments as business coach and corporate tutor working with individuals What is most important, however, is that it 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.

I also have a lot of experience teaching other foreign languages, using similar approaches. In particular I have done a lot of work teaching GERMAN and FRENCH, and a little beginner JAPANESE, to adult learners, and of course as a linguist have worked with more academic learning of languages at GCSE level and above. When teaching German or French to adult learners my focus is on giving learners the basic language skills they need to able to get by in the respective country in an enjoyable way.

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 is thus quite action oriented, we do things with 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 simulation 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 genuine communication that happens in a language class, and thus it is an 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.
