Personal Description:
I am a French native speaker who currently lives in England.

I have been teaching French and English for 16 years both in England and in large international schools. I enjoy reading and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have prepared students for a variety of examinations, including AQA GCSE, AQA FCSE, CIE IGCSE, AS and A Level (Edexcel and AQA). I have also taught French to primary students.

I hold a Licence from the University of Aix-en-Provence (France), a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from the University of Sheffield (UK) as well as a TESOL diploma from the University of Leicester (UK).

During the course of my career, I have lead the Foreign Modern Language faculty in a British International School.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that to successfully teach a language it is most important to look at each student individually. We all learn in different ways and I always make sure I get to know my students better before deciding on an approach.

However, the most important part is to make students feel comfortable and help them grow in confidence. Learning a language can be a challenge but, with the right approach and support, it can be a most rewarding experience.

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£15 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£16 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£17 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a passionate teacher of English who specialises in GCSE and A Level teaching. As 2nd in department at my current school, I have an excellent knowledge of new exam specifications and skills required. I am enthusiastic, caring and understand that no two students learn in the same way - you can rest assured that lessons will be written specifically for the student to address their current needs. I have built excellent relationships with students and I thoroughly enjoy seeing students grow in confidence and ability.

Teaching Experience:

5 years at a secondary school in East Riding of Yorkshire. I have done private tutoring before and will cater to the individual student's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

On the first meeting I like to sit down with the student and get an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses in the subject, outlining how they like to learn and what strategies they have found work for them in the classroom. From here I will plan bespoke lessons to suit the exam board and the student's needs. I understand that some students will be reluctant to learn, so I try to make lessons as engaging as possible (linking topics to their individual interests wherever possible!) Marked work will be returned promptly to both students and guardians, with further opportunities to make improvements. When working towards examinations, I will provide exam practice material, which will be marked and reviewed.

Subjects

Personal Description:
I am used to teaching students of all ages. I have a first degree in History and English and a masters in Art History. I have been teaching successfully in London and Norfolk for the past 26 years and can honestly say that I have never had a student fail, whether it be for an entrance exam or GCSE, 'A' level or even at University helping with a final dissertation. I enjoy tutoring on a one to one basis and am passionate about my chosen subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at further education colleges in and around London as well as private schools mainly in English and History for G.C.S.E. and 'A' Level students. I am also an Associate Lecturer for the Open University in the Humanities and have been doing so for 14 years. My main strengths are in private tutoring in which I have been engaged for the past 26 years around London and Norfolk.

Tutoring Approach:

In the case of coursework for GCSE or 'A' level I am happy to have students email their work for me to check over and then have a lesson in person. With regard to working towards examinations, I prefer to use the question papers as the basis for learning as generally each exam board has a preference for the way in which questions are answered especially in the subjects I teach. English and History especially are open to interpretation. I believe the need to read around the subject and offer a wider knowledge than is generally taught at schools or colleges is vital. Regular tuition is therefore preferable, so that all problems can be addressed over a period of time.

Subjects
  • English (Foreign Language)
  • Adult/Casual learner (£21 p.h.)
  • History
  • GCSE or Standards (£24 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£26 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and approachable teacher with heaps of tutoring experience. I have an English Degree from Oxford University and and an Acting Degree from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. So I specialise in teaching English and Drama students.

Teaching Experience:

I tutored for four years before becoming a teacher. I now teach 11-18 year olds full time.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple. I tailor tutorials to each student's needs in a relaxed and focused environment. Together we will formulate a structured and effective learning plan. Once that is in place we will set about shoring up any areas of knowledge or technique that the student is concerned about.

Personal Description:
Not everyone can reach their potential in a class of perhaps thirty students, especially if peer pressure, noise and poor behaviour work against their best efforts; even at university nowadays, seminar groups are often crazily over-large. I began teaching as a genuine vocation, after many successful years as a marketing manager in the pharmaceutical industry. It is this background that makes me different; it has given me an approach to teaching that has changed the outlook and results of many young students similar to your own son and daughter, inspiring them with renewed confidence and enthusiasm. The large number of genuine four and five star references on this site and elsewhere are evidence of this. As well as teach, I also write for several publishers including the BBC; also I have been the "BBC Bitesize English teacher" for some years, responding to educational queries sent in to their website.

I have taught English Language and Literature (as well as Media and Film Studies) to KS3, GCSE, A-level and under-graduate level for several years; I also tutor primary (KS2) students, helping them with their KS2 and entrance exam preparation. My speciality, apart from a natural love of English Literature. is linguistics and I suppose, through my teaching materials, I have become quite well known even nationally for my work in this area.

I taught for many years at the county's leading comprehensive school, The Beauchamp College in Oadby, where year-on-year my classes achieved amongst the highest results in the school, and therefore amongst the highest in the county of Leicestershire.

As well as a teacher of English, thanks to my business background, qualifications and interests, over the years I have been able to help many students studying Sociology, Business Studies and History, right through to undergraduate level.

As a naturally shy individual despite a confident-seeming exterior, I am especially keen on building confidence in my students, and I try hard to improve public speaking skills as these are so important not just for interviews and the like, but for a general feeling of well-being and inner-confidence. Schools seem unable to help quiet or shy students and this is an area in which I think I can say I excel.

I am nationally known and respected for my teaching materials and run a very popular English GCSE and A-level revision website. My teaching materials and guides are used throughout the country and even overseas. As the BBC's "Bitesize" English teacher, I have even been on the Greg James's Radio 1 show, answering students' revision 'Tweets' and discussing with him his favourite book, To Kill a Mockingbird!

Teaching Experience:

I am currently a full time tutor and educational writer, but for many years taught at the leading school in the area, the Beauchamp College in Oadby, Leicester; whilst there I regularly achieved among the top pass rates in the school and, therefore, in the whole county. I have written educational materials for national publishers including the BBC where for several years I was the BBC Bitesize English teacher, having appeared in that role on national radio (Radio 1); many of my own teaching materials are used by teachers across the country. I run my own English GCSE and A-level revision website.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a no-nonsense and straightforward approach to my teaching - one that provides excellent value for money and exam results. Lessons and homework are supported with the highest quality teaching and learning materials available. My personal approach is to treat youngsters as equals, something they tell me is rare in teaching and which boosts their self-confidence greatly.

Personal Description:
I graduated in July 2012 with a high 2:1 in BA French from the University of Southampton. During this time I also started learning Spanish from scratch. I spent 9 months living in France as part of my degree, and after graduating I lived and worked in Spain for 3 months in order to improve my knowledge of the Spanish language. After living in Spain, I came back to the UK and worked at a translation company as a project manager and then line manager, where I was able to use my languages. Whilst working in this job, I also completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Translation in my spare time, studying via distance learning with the University of Bristol. I am now working for the University of London, providing support and development to institutions worldwide.

In my free time I enjoy baking, cycling and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

Whilst on my university year abroad, I taught English at two primary schools in France. This involved lesson planning and teaching classes of up to 28 children. I have also tutored French to a few students in the UK, at both primary and secondary level. Most recently, I tutored French to a secondary school pupil, ahead of his GCSE exams, helping him to significantly improve on his predicted grade. I therefore have experience in teaching a range of subjects through different activities - I thoroughly enjoy giving private face-to-face tuition and watching students learn and increase their confidence in the language.

Tutoring Approach:

I have experience teaching all ages and am therefore able to adapt my teaching method to the student. I believe that it is really important to talk to students in order to gauge exactly what they want to gain out of each session, as well as to determine how best they learn. I have a good knowledge of French grammar and believe it is important to improve all aspects of language: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Personal Description:
As a University of Kent graduate with good grades on Mathematics, Biology and Psychology subjects, I have made my pursuit on making tutorial sessions with those students who need help with the subjects which I am really good at.

Teaching Experience:

As an experienced tutor I do believe that learning isn't hard if there is a good and talented mentor who could best encouraged every learner to acquire new things and become competitive at school.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutorial have been the answer for grade related problems of every students. Most of the time students encounter such problems because of inattentiveness due to confusions that is being created during their daily lessons at school. During my tutoring every detail is scrutinized up to the single one.

As a tutor I love showing my tutees the joy of learning through different activities which they will always find interesting. With my pursuit to help students I have different strategies being used depending upon the age and level of difficulty of the topic to be taught.

I strongly believe that a good tutor knows how to listen to his tutee. I always let my tutees to tell their concerns, and have a personal talk with them. Getting to know each other is the first thing that every tutor should do, this is the best way to help them feel more at ease.

I see to it that my tutees are learning from what I am talking and discussing. This made me a favorite of my previous tutees who are now a tutor to some of their younger friends in their place. I always find the best way to teach them for them to learn the topic in the easiest way possible.

The need to have a good tutor with a heart to its tutee is a must. In my entire experience in tutoring I have learned to established connection to my tutee. As a facilitator of learning it is important to work with students rather than lecturing them. The steps, methods and procedures should be done in a way that all of the details are being understood by the tutee.

A good tutor encourages students to remain active during the period of learning and mentoring. Every tutee would love to be with a tutor who treats him as friend. For me the best way to help the learners is to become their friend and not as somebody who treats them as a student.

Tutoring should be done in a way that is made fun and exciting; no tutee would like to be with a boring tutor. So when I was having my first year of experience in tutoring I always prepare the necessary things in order to make the entire learning process effective.

Aside from being ready for the tutoring sessions, the topics I used to teach them are in line with their discussions. Most of my tutees where having their advance lessons during the tutorial I am giving them, mostly if they are going to join a school competition.

For those who are interested to become my tutee I am always free and available all the time. I am also offering tutorial sessions directly to your home provided you are around North West London.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher, specialising in Mathematics and Science, but with a background in engineering. I gained my degree in Aeronautical Engineering back in the late 70's, having chosen the subject mainly to continue with my love of applied maths. I worked for some years as an aerodynamicist before studying for my PGCE in Cambridge.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mathematics in the capacity of a supply teacher and that of a 1 To 1 Tutor for some years now. This has allowed me to continue to work whilst also taking a major role in the wider education of my children who are now themselves studying at university. I was a Governor of 2 schools in Wiltshire, involved with PTFA here in Lancashire and help to run Preston Pride Basketball Club. For 2 years I successfully tutored pupils in school at Fleetwood High and more recently I taught Catch-up GCSE mathematics to students at Cardinal Newman College, helping them to gain some very good results.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make lessons enjoyable, believing that learning happens more easily when you are having fun. For many students a few lessons 1-to-1 with a sympathetic teacher will help them to gain a surprising amount of confidence, allowing them to partake more fully in their class at school. I will tailor lessons to each individual's needs, without compromising on curriculum or attainment. I firmly believe in the basic values that respect every individual and strive to help everyone achieve their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English in a Spanish secondary school during my Erasmus year and currently work as an MFL Deputy Coordinator at an 'outstanding' secondary school on the outskirts of west London.

Tutoring Approach:

I will take the same approach to tutoring as I do to my teaching - enthusiastic and well planned lessons that engage the student in the language. Explaining what is required for the exam is far easier when there are high levels of engagement.

Personal Description:
I`m a Physics graduate from the University of Glasgow. I`m originally from London where I achieved an A* in Physics and an A in Mathematics at 18. Since then I`ve been an undergraduate at the University and consistently achieved 1st Class grades throughout all my classes and I graduated with a First Class Honours degree.

Teaching Experience:

I have a 2 years experience of tutoring in London where my 3 students all achieved their desired grades. I also helped compile revision resources for the A-Level Physics class for my school which, to the best of my knowledge, are still in use. My course entails components centered around communication of concepts and peer assessment which I have done well in and would aid me in tutoring. I have also recently completed a summer internship with the university helping to develop teaching resources for some of the university courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to initially understand the problem areas the student has and then build these areas up to a reasonable standard of competency through a combination of explanations including written and oral demonstrations, videos and, later, problems. Once the core theory understanding of the various areas of the subject are firm I work on building the student's problem solving skills which are key to passing exams. This is done mainly through solving problems and past exam questions. In my experience, I have found this method to be the most successful in allowing the student to pass and excel in their exams as well as enriching their understanding of the subject.

Personal Description:
I'm a native Spanish speaker currently living in Leigh on Sea, I would love to teach and converse with anyone interested in learning the language or improve their speaking and listening skills.
I'm friendly, patient, relaxed, reliable and dedicated. I'm able to teach based on levels and objectives, Grammar, Pronunciation, Speaking, Reading, Writing or simply Conversational classes. I can help you!
I can use different media (videos, books, movies, songs) to teach.
I got a degree in Commercial Admin since 2001.

Teaching Experience:

It is easier for me to teach Spanish because I studied English as a second language, so I understand the process and challenges of learning another language. I know that every person learns in a different way. I am currently working in a private school in Chelmsford. Also, I've teaching Spanish to my own children as they were born here in the UK. I have been teaching Spanish to Adult beginners and GCSE students.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on my experience the communicative approach gives primacy to oral work. Direct contact with the language is very important. Not just from hearing the teacher, but also from using it and from hearing other people besides the teacher. Having personal contact with the language, practicing sounds, improvising and trying to make your own sentences and getting the chance to make mistakes and learn from doing so.

Subjects
  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£15 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£15 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£15 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (£15 p.h.)
  • Adult/Casual learner (£15 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name is Rebecca and I am an enthusiastic and hardworking teacher. I am 23 years old and believe that my friendly, patient approach to teaching allows children to reach their full potential. I am flexible and I will use a variety of teaching methods to help with English and Maths at a primary level.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching across the primary age groups and I have experience of working in one-to-one situations in a classroom. I have planned for all abilities and I have ensured that my work is differentiated according to each child's varying needs; this will reflect in my tutoring. During my classroom teaching experience, I have gained ideas for different techniques to help children with their English and Maths; this will again reflect in my tutoring. For example, I often believe that a practical approach helps significantly with Maths and will incorporate this into my tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and patient individual whose tutoring will be tailored to my tutee's needs. I believe that a calm approach is essential and that each tutee learns in their own unique ways; therefore I will find a way to help based on how the tutee learns best. I am very approachable and encouraging and will build a positive environment for the tutee to learn to the best of their ability.

Personal Description:
My name is Patricia and I am a Brazilian native living in west London. I have managed to help many friends perfect their: Portuguese dialect, writing, and reading in the past and thought I would expand by assisting others. Those interested might be: students hoping to revise for GCSEs, those with Portuguese speaking business partners, or those who might be looking to improve their everyday phrases for an upcoming trip. Whatever your level of ability, I can help you.

Teaching Experience:

One-to-one tutoring with friends and family members.

Tutoring Approach:

I have booklets prepared for different ranges of ability and find that verbal repetition with the use of Portuguese songs happen to be most successful. The use of repetition allows for the correction of possible errors with diction or male/ female forms.

Subjects
  • Portuguese
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)
  • 11+ (secondary) (£20 p.h.)
  • Adult/Casual learner (£20 p.h.)
