Personal Description:
I am BA (Hon) graduate and Professional Freelance Translator, Interpreter and Private Tutor.
I am married with a 15-year old son.

Teaching Experience:

Following my degree, I returned to Spain to teach English for a year.
During the past three years I have taught French and Spanish on a one-to-one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

Based very much on what the learner wants to cover. Once we have agreed the initial starting point, I would advise that they purchase a suitable language course book with CD/DVD so that they will be able to consolidate what they learn in the relaxed but structured lesson with me, and also continue to listen, and speak in the chosen target language between lessons.
Although the lessons with me will be structured, I will go at the learners' own pace and ability, consolidating as we go along, and introducing fun exercises and games by way of revision, and also give constructive advice about what other resources can assist them.

Personal Description:
My name is Andy. I finished my A-Levels in 2011 and am preparing to study German and Russian at The University of Cambridge starting in October. I excelled at languages in school, receiving an A* in German A2 and an A in French AS. Between school and university I studied at the Goethe Institute in Berlin, lived and worked in Germany for over half a year, and am now starting to learn Russian and pusuing my other interests such as computer programming. I have also travelled extensively in France and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have no formal teaching experience (yet!) but learning three foreign languages myself and having studied German in a class actually taught in German, I am very familiar with the aspects of language that students have difficulty with. I am always thinking of better ways to explain things than the way they were explained to me, because every student learns in their own way; this makes me well placed to teach languages, German in particular due to my recent experiences in my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

Having only recently completed my German GCSE myself (in 2009), I am familiar with the way it is taught in school. I also had lessons from a private tutor myself in German for a year or so during secondary school, so I know the sorts of things that will complement and expand on the material taught in class.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and experienced teacher with a real passion for languages. This has led me to travel widely within Europe and amass a great deal of experience of other cultures. That and my belief in 'having a go' at communicating has led me to learn the basics of quite a few languages and given me plenty of material for (short) 'instructional anecdotes', based on various scrapes and international misunderstandings! Languages should be fun and we should never be afraid to try them out! My other passion is music - a truly international language - and I enjoy my weekly instrumental lessons and playing with my local (amateur) orchestra.

Teaching Experience:

I hold degree level qualifications in English, French, Spanish and German and have over 30 years' experience of teaching languages, in both private and state schools and Sixth Form and Further Education colleges, where I have prepared students for a range of examinations and other qualifications. I have particular expertise in helping students bridge the gap between GCSE and AS level - and I love grammar! I have also worked as a private tutor and as a provider of courses and interpreting services for local businesses. My students have ranged in age from 8 to 80-plus. I teach Spanish and French to A level and can also offer German and Italian to intermediate level and basic introductory courses in Russian and Latin. I also offer conversational English for speakers of other languages.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons usually take place in my home, but I am also willing to travel to you or to a venue of your choice. In the latter case I would need reasonable time and travel expenses. I can offer day-time or evening lessons, any day of the week. My hourly rate is 25, though I offer lessons of any length to suit you (charged pro rata). The same rate applies irrespective of the group size. Tutoring can be 1-to-1, small-group or, if you can provide a suitable venue, in a group of up to 15. I can offer intensive tuition or courses of various lengths (though exam candidates must make their own arrangements to sit papers). Alternatively, I can offer coaching and support for those already studying elsewhere. Each course is tailor-made to suit your exact requirements - and I aim to make each lesson fun!

Personal Description:
For 25 years of work in education I've gained rich experience which I want to share with those who need my guidance and assistance. As a participant of professional exchange programs, member of Educators' organizations, volunteer in international projects I have studied new teaching methods and use them at my lessons combining the most advanced pedagogical ideas with the best achievements of traditional education.

Teaching Experience:

Work as a Teacher at schools, University, Education centre since 1991

Gave lessons in English language for junior and senior students
Conducted classes of the English language courses
Tutor in English and Russian for the group of students and individuals
Participation in international exchange programs for Language Teachers

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching has always been my passion and perhaps, my life mission.
I like to work with groups of students in the classroom. But tutoring has more advantages for individual approach to each student, and consequently, higher results in studying any subject. I try to tailor my lessons in accordance with everyone's abilities, priorities, interests and tastes.

Personal Description:
I have been a private tutor for 25 years. I really enjoy teaching on a one-to-one basis, because I not only feel that I have and can help people learn skills that they will need for the rest of their lives, but I also get a great feeling of satisfaction when one of my pupils or students either passes an exam or finds that what he/she has learnt during our lessons has helped them in their field of work.
I am a native speaker of English and a qualified EFL/ESL teacher/tutor. I lived in Greece for many years and so
I can help Greek speakers learn English.
I also enjoy teaching Modern Greek as a foreign language as I had to learn this fascinating language from scratch, and so I believe I can help someone who wants to be able to visit Greece or Cyprus to communicate with the local people in their own language.
Moreover, I have branched into the field of proof reading & editing of student dissertations, assignments & essays in all subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English as a Foreign and Second language for 27 years. I have taught all levels of English from Beginners - Advanced levels. I have prepared many students for the Cambridge ESOL exams, such as FCE, CAE, IELTS and CPE. I am also happy to say that I have had many successes in this field. I have also taught all age groups from young children to adult learners. I am a Cambridge ESOL oral examiner, and I believe that this has helped me both prepare students for exam success, but examiner training has also helped me to appreciate the importance of making a student feel relaxed and enjoy this learning experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that I have developed a personal, individual style when it comes to tutoring. I consider the tutor-student relationship to be of utmost importance. If a student feels confident and relaxed with his or her tutor then the learning experience is that much easier. Private tutoring allows the tutor to develop a course which is tailor-made for the student's needs. I always try to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible, by introducing a wide variety of material in every lesson, as opposed to just sticking to a text book which can well become boring and unproductive. There are many ways to learn a language or an academic subject, and this is what I try to achieve through my lessons.

Personal Description:
My name is Nadia, I am a Spanish, Portuguese and English teacher from Argentina. I have been teaching languages for more than 14 years now. I love my profession, I really enjoy teaching and sharing my experiences with the students. I moved to London in December 2011 (I hold an unmarried partner VISA, this means I am eligible to work in the UK) I am hard working, responsible and I believe in fun, communicative and interactive lessons. I love new challenges. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you, so we can start having fun and learning together!

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching languages for more than 14 years. I studied English Language Teaching Training at Mar del Plata University, Buenos Aires, Argentina. I also hold the CELTA. I taught English and Portuguese in Argentina in schools and language institutes to all age groups and levels (for more than 10 years). I also taught English and Spanish in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to all levels and age groups, from children to adolescents and adults (for 5 years). I really love and enjoy teaching and sharing my experiences with the students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in fun, communicative and interactive lessons. I assess students needs and motivation for learning the target language. Always recycling the language learnt and putting into practice what is learnt in each lesson. I use a wide variety of materials (course books, grammar reference books, newspaper articles, songs, internet articles,short stories and whatever the students are interested in learning). The four skills are practiced from the very first class. You will feel that you are actually learning while having fun!

Personal Description:
I am an inspiring, self-motivating and dynamic teacher with extensive experience in teaching at the UK academies, selective schools and a number of top boarding schools. As a result, I have acquired specialized knowledge of UK and Chinese educational systems and a flexible approach to teaching which is most relevant to the demands of the post.

Similarly, my strong academic record indicates that I am well-qualified for the job. In particular, I am currently studying Mandarin Chinese PGCE course at Institute of Education, which leads the UK for education training. The course has provided me with in-depth methodology skills, highly suited to the UK framework for teaching Mandarin Chinese. As part of this training, I have undergone intense observations across a wide range of school placements. This has provided me with practical experience of developing schemes of work in line with the National Curriculum of Mandarin Chinese.

Furthermore, during my school placements training, I have found this experience immensely rewarding and have developed an approach to teaching which aims to challenge and engage young minds. I have developed skills in teaching critical thinking and learnt how to nurture innovation and original thought. I instill high expectations in pupils and encourage self-efficacy as a tool for enabling achievement. Similarly, given the academic criteria of my school placements, I am expected to teach from basic to Oxbridge level. I have also developed insight into the value of inspiring pupils' intrinsic motivation and meta-knowledge. This involves emphasizing the importance of knowing individual strengths in order to capitalize on them and individual difficulties so as to identify enabling strategies. In addition, by fostering these facets of self-awareness, I find that pupils are often able to self-regulate aspects of their learning to excellent effect.

I will bring energy and enthusiasm to the school's extra-curricular activities. For example, I could offer Movie Clubs screening Chinese movies and Culture Clubs sharing Chinese Calligraphy and Tea Ceremonies. I am particularly skilled at cooking traditional Chinese food, which could be integrated into the school's Mandarin days and Festival celebrations. I am interested in Chinese music, singing and drama. I believe that integrating singing and drama into the Mandarin department would be a motivating tool for developing oral skills in the target language.

Finally, I believe teaching is one of the few vocations in life that can make a significant difference to people's lives, enabling children and young people to build a promising future. I also find teaching to be a very rewarding career, I am particularly happy and proud each time my students make progress in their study or advocate positive behavior. I also enjoy the challenge of teaching and developing new ways to make my lessons interesting and stimulating to a wide range of students.

Teaching Experience:

I have intensive teaching English and Mandarin Chinese experience in both top China secondary schools and UK academies and selective schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I will be teaching according to the students' age and different learning styles accordingly.

Personal Description:
I am a History graduate from the University of Reading. I studied a wide range of topics and time periods during my degree, including late medieval and modern history. My specialist subject is the Tudors. I am very enthusiastic about my subject and teaching it to others.

Teaching Experience:

I have a successful track record of tutoring A level history.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise that every student has a different approach to learning and I feel it is important to build this into a tutoring plan. I would start by identifying areas which the student needs help on and find out how they like to learn. I would then use this information, and a variety of teaching techniques, to ensure they reach their full potential. I believe learning should be fun and stimulating in order for students to progress.

Personal Description:
I am a family man, married 10 years to my wife Mel, with 3 beautiful daughters. I have been tutoring in the South Wales area since 1992 after graduating in Chemical Engineering with 2nd (Hons) Degree from University of Glamorgan. My hobbies include wordwide travel, Triathlon, Motorcycles/Cars and anything to do with science and maths.

Teaching Experience:

After graduating in Summer 1992 with an Honours Degree in Chemical & Process Engineering from the University of Glamorgan, I set up my tutoring business to assist parents & pupils with examination preparation, who felt they were being let down by the educational system.

I worked as an examiner for the WJEC from 1997 to 2002 marking Maths papers.

I currently teach on a 1-2-1 basis or in small groups, usually {but not exclusively} in the privacy of the pupils home, in the following subjects:-

* Key stages 1 to 4 {GCSE} in Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Engineering, Design and Technology, Electronics.

* 'A' Levels {GCE} in Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics

* BTEC Engineering, Nursing & Health Care courses, Paramedics, Sports Science.

* Degrees in Engineering - Chemical, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Aerospace, and Nursing.

* UKCAT Entrance exams to Medicine and Dental school.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly prepare students for examinations using past paper practise to build up their self confidence and develop the ability to read and digest each exam question.

During the interim term time, I conduct 'student led' lessons, where each of my pupils is able to tell me what they want to learn; whether it be new material, homework assistance or revision of old topics.

I structure my lessons this way because I teach many different students of varying abilities, who are studying at different levels and using different exam boards e.g. WJEC, OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL.

  • Further/Higher (university) (32 p.h.)

Tutoring Approach:

I take a holistic approach to the teaching of history, ensuring that the student becomes engaged within a fuller understanding of the period being studied. As a former student and teach of history, I realise that the principal block to a tutee's understanding of historical concepts is a lack of immersion within the relevant time-frames and thus an inability to fully comprehend why certain actions were taken, and the wider effect this had.

Thus in my approach I am firm believer that it is as important for every student to understand to a higher level than that offered by the current state curriculum the context of the period they are studying. As a consequence I offer tailored introductions to said period's culture, economy, religious and political setting, and even physical geography.

Furthermore, I offer the necessary skills to craft this knowledge into well-reasoned, informed essays. My intimate knowledge of the state education system and beyond has imbued me with the ability to gauge how assignments will be assessed and thus I can work with students not only on improving their knowledge, but showcasing this in highly-marked, structured and coherent written forms.

I use a number of methods to achieve this, including homework assignments, but also using character adoption, audio-visual aids and a mixture of written and verbal questions of varying length and form.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is that I tailor my tuition to the needs of the student. I will tutor in the student's home or on their place of work. I will vary my style depending on the ability and needs of the student. I aim to run my tuition in support of the progression of my students through their subject syllabus, but I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires.

As I aim to tailor my tuition to the individual I expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their subject progressions and their individual needs. I expect students to arrive at tuition sessions with a clear idea of what it is they hope to get from the sessions.

I will provide each student with a progress log and detailed feedback on how they are performing and areas where they need to improve, I may also set work for my students to complete outside of sessions and for this set work I will offer a marking service.

Personal Description:
I am a multilingual ex-City consultant with degrees in Physics and Environmental Economics.
I tutor Maths, Physics, Science and languages (French, German, Spanish, Latin). I am a very patient tutor who understands very well the challenges of learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have one-to-one experience in tutoring Maths, Physics, French and Latin. Most of my experience is from my engagement with a south London initiative called GCSE success.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient tutor who values getting the 'basics right' before building on that knowledge. I am very flexible and adaptable depending on the pupil's aptitude and interest in the subject. I tend to use visual aids for Maths and Physics tutoring with very positive results. For languages I also use teaching and memory methods in order to help the pupil progress rapidly with visible results.

Personal Description:
Hi!

My name is Artur, I come from Poland. I would love to share my skills, with anyone who is motivated and willing to learn!

I'd love to think of myself as thoughtful, caring, attentive, and always trying to bring out the best from people. My success is Your success, as I feel a sense of deep satisfaction whenever I see one of my students, realizing their goals and making progress.

Teaching Experience:

I have three years of experience in teaching drums, I thought children as well as adults. All of them had vastly different goals and aspirations. This gave me a rich experience, as working with different individuals, shows how people have different modes of learning and require drastically different approach.

I learned importance of cooperation, willingness to listen, and speaking the language of the student, in order to get through. Stepping into someone elses shoes is a great skill to have, as it allows me to see the world from someone else's perspective and truly help them.

Tutoring Approach:

I always do my best to get to know the person I am teaching, in order to personalize the lesson and make it suitable for every student.

Why You Should Choose Me

This approach works because we are all unique individuals, and information can be presented and related in many different ways, to craft a lesson that is truly understandable to anyone.

I believe that aspriation and motivation is much more important than talent, so I always treat all the student equally, and make sure that they receive enough attention so their natural abilities can grow and flourish.

I try to be firm, yet relaxed. I belive in encouraging and rewarding the process, not the results, which yields great results in the end.

If You are motivated and eager to learn, let me know as soon as possible! I'm sure we will have a great time and You will develop Your skills whether it is brushing off Your Polish vocabulary, or learning it from scratch!

Personal Description:
Hello. My name is Carol and I'm a transplanted American. I've lived in the UK for over 10 years and I absolutely love it. My daughter Grace lives in Edinburgh with her husband and wee baby boy. And my son Elijah is 24 and lives here in London, studying fashion at Royal College of Art.

I love to cook and entertain friends. I go to the cinema a lot with my son or with friends and I try to get to the theatre at least four or five times a year. I cycle everywhere, and making things look homely and inviting brings me great joy. I read a great variety of things and watch fascinating documentaries. And if I could, I'd travel the world continuously to soak in all the amazing cultures and languages and traditions of the world.

I currently tutor English to students from a variety of countries and language backgrounds.

Teaching Experience:

I homeschooled both my children for fourteen years total. If success is measured by the outcome, my children are proof of my tutoring ability. Grace went on to graduate from University of Edinburgh with a 4 year degree in English Literature and History. Elijah graduated from Northampton University with a First in Fashion Design and is now a graduate student at Royal College of Arts. I tutored every subject to them, and also taught group tutoring sessions in Geography, Earth Science and History.
When my children went on higher education, I retrained as a TESOL teacher, the highest level to teach English as a Foreign Language. I've worked in English schools here in London and taught to the FCE exam as well as privately tutoring English to businessmen and woman from around the world.
I've been teaching now for 22 years, mostly tutoring one-on-one.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everyone has the capacity to learn anything if it's taught to their learning style and consciousness. None of us sees things the same way....and none of us can absorb things by the same method as another person. It's crucial to understand a person's 'grid', or the way they learn. That only comes from observed feedback: that's when someone who is learning something new digests it and then gives it back in some way (an essay, a written assignment, or a verbal recounting) to show understanding. I call that 'the lightbulb moment'.

I also think that being relaxed and having fun while learning is so important. Good humour is a key to learning. When we are enjoying the company and the environment, our sensors are up and our receptors are open! It's a refreshing and invigorating experience, not a draining one.

The relationship between the tutor and student needs to be safe. It should feel like a safe place to make mistakes or to say, 'I don't understand.' Or to feel very, very excited about understanding something for the first time without being made to feel like 'it's about time.'

I believe in academic success, measured by passing tests, but not limited by them.

Personal Description:
I am patient and reliable. My ability to pay maximum attention to the academic needs of students has endeared me closer to my clients (students). I feel happy when there exists a smile of satisfaction on the faces of those under my tutelage. I am punctual to my appointments.

Teaching Experience:

I have acquired a total of 8 years post-university teaching experience mainly in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Statistics and Chemistry and biology. I also have a long standing experience in teaching study skills for maximum success.
I have taught in secondary school and in Universities.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple. First of all, understanding the students' strength and weakness in the subject area of interest is important as this serves as a yard stick in measuring the magnitude of tutoring required.
This will also suggest how best to go about it. Using pictures and stories have been found to yield successful results in most cases.
Assessment of the students in the end also helps to detail how far the student has made progress.
