Personal Description:
Hello!
I am a 51-year-old woman, native speaker from Germany. I love the theater and worked as an actress, author, and director. I also worked as a secretary and was responsible for the complete correspondence. The work with and via the German language is so exciting and leads you to a completely new world that I would love to share this experience with people that want to learn German.

Teaching Experience:

I am not a teacher in the classic sense but as a native speaker with a lot of experiences in teaching theater items I am able to help you practicing your new language - no matter if you need it for school, your job or just for fun!

Tutoring Approach:

It is my firm conviction you never learn better, quicker and more sustainable than in simply practicing a language.
Of course, it might be necessary to build a base first - that depends on your individual knowledge.
But no matter if you are a beginner or if you do already speak German - soon we will reach a level where we will talk only in German.
We won't learn vocabularies and grammar stubbornly by the book but we will practice the new language right from the beginning on everyday items.

I am no teacher in the classic sense - but I am a native speaker and I can help you with learning and practicing the German language.

So do not hesitate - just do it!

Personal Description:
I am an experienced and qualified tutor - I have a mathematics PhD and have been tutoring at all levels (from GCSE through to undergraduate) for over a decade. I believe any student can become strong in maths with good tuition and a little work.

I'm also the author of Basic Maths For Dummies, AS- & A-Level Maths For Dummies, and several more titles in the For Dummies range.

"I am planning on recommending Colin's tutoring to any of my friends who need help. He was patient and made the material easier to understand despite the fact that I hadn't taken math in years. I got a great grade too!"
- MC, Utah

Teaching Experience:

* Started tutoring GCSE maths while doing A-levels
* Tutored through university career
* Have always been complimented on my ability to make difficult ideas simple without patronising

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to encourage students to look at problems methodically and to help understand the ideas behind the theory by using simple, real-world examples. I teach that it's not just getting the right answer that is important, but understanding how you got there and knowing that the answer is right.

Lessons take place either online or at my classroom in Weymouth.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced and skilled Tutor of French, Russian and English as a foreign language. I have been tutoring continuously for 6 years, typically working with 6 or 7 students at any one time. I have spent several years living and working abroad, so this has given me quite an international outlook. At the same time, I am quite well-travelled within the UK and have a good understanding of English history, culture and customs. As a native speaker of English, I have an excellent grasp of the English language, particularly in terms of grammar, spelling and pronunciation.

I am fair-minded, accepting of the needs of others, multi-culturally sensitive and take genuine pride in the quality of my work and going the extra mile wherever possible.

Teaching Experience:

I possess the PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) and am qualified to teach in Secondary Schools in the United Kingdom. I have four years experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language, and have taught the English as a Foreign Language curriculum at all levels, from elementary to advanced. I have taught a wide range of groups of both children, from the age of 11 upwards, and adults. I am particularly strong in teaching Business English to non-native speakers - I have redesigned and delivered an Advanced Level Business English Course for Masters Degree level students, I have worked with many private students of Business English on their premises, and have also successfully prepared students for the London Chamber of Commerce Exams in Business Communication.

I am very comfortable tutoring French up to A-Level Standard. I have myself lived in France for three years and have been educated in the French Education System up to Masters Degree level. I therefore have a very strong grasp of French language and culture which I love to share. I also actively use my French skills in my everyday employment,and am well used to interacting with French native speakers on a daily basis.

I am educated in Russian up to Bachelor's Degree level and have a similarly broad experience of practising and communicating in the Russian language, having spent five years living and working in Russian speaking countries. I am comfortable tutoring Russian up to A-Level Standard.

I have also delivered private lessons in order to prepare students for Private School entrance. I typically work with students on GCSE or A-Level preparation and have an excellent track record in delivering strong results in these areas. I have worked with family groups who were all keen to learn a foreign language together, as well as those seeking to learn for professional or business reasons, and both modes of tuition have also proved to be very rewarding for me. I prefer to build stable medium term teaching relationships, and retained one student for over 5 years, even if this meant my arriving dutifully every Saturday morning for our 9am class!

Tutoring Approach:

In a word: flexibility. I make every effort to really take on board and respond to the wishes of my clients. I am clear and proactive in communication regarding expectations and always seek to ensure mutual agreement with my students and parents as to setting realistic targets and the most appropriate learning strategies for their needs.

I am a great believer that learning should be fun and always seek to make my classes varied, challenging and stimulating, drawing upon as wide a range of learning skills and strategies as possible.

I have an excellent grasp of both spoken and written English, and am a strong believer in developing confidence in these areas through regular practice, setting realistic targets and offering plenty of praise and encouragement.

I prefer to work with individuals or smaller groups in a relaxed, purposeful atmosphere where there is plenty of tutor input or explanation as required, but also where students are given every opportunity to practise and develop newly acquired skills.

Personal Description:
I am a jovial person who enjoys the vocation of teaching; I love to see the light go on in a learner. I am an Englishman abroad and wouldn't change where I live for a moment.

I am a keen musician (very amatuer) and my limited spare time is spent in my home studio mucking about and not getting anything actually achieved. I also enjoy the restoration of my house and garden which, like the Forth bridge, will never be finished!

I am a dog owner and nature lover and have a broad teaching style; I prefer the learner to dictate the style and I find the methods to fit.

Please feel free to ask questions.

Thank you

Teaching Experience:

I have been a teacher for over 20 years which culminated in a Head of Dept roll for 5 years (Business Studies). I have been very fortunate in my career to have taught all age groups many different subjects. I have returned to mainstream secondary education, teaching Business Studies and ICT following A level ICT at Coleg Menai and tutition for Single parents (charity) which has provided me with different skills and approaches rather than just formal classroom led instruction.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a holistic type and I always want the learner to be happy with an answer they give and know "why" the answer is correct. I hopefully bring humour (debatable) and a wide variety of methods to my teaching along with contemporary examples.

At present I am available in the evenings (Mon to Thurs, 5 to 8).

Please note that my prices include no additional travel expenses up to 15 miles from my home and I am perfectly happy to offer group discounts - the more learners the cheaper the individual cost.

Thanks for looking.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher of exceptional qualifications and experience, acquired in both Bulgaria and the UK. My 5-year MA degree (English Philology, comprising of English and American Studies, Applied Linguistics and Theory and Practice of Translation, Grade 2:1) has provided me with a thorough and solid theoretical basis in all aspects of English. It includes a teaching qualification up to Level 7/8, validated as a full UK QTS by the GTC for England. I have also completed a second degree (with 1st class Hon.) and obtained a Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults.

I am qualified and experienced to teach pupils from primary school to university (post-graduate) level as following:

- 11+ EXTRANCE EXAM FOR GRAMMAR AND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL EXAM PREPARATION - READING COMPREHENSION, MATHEMATICS, VERBAL REASONING AND NON-VERBAL REASONING, ESSAY COMPOSITION AND LITERARY TEXT ANALYSIS - FROM AGE 7+
- primary school: English, Maths, basic literacy and numeracy skills - KS1 and 2 Maths and English
- secondary school: English Language, English Literature, GCSE English Language and Literature, KS3 and 4
- A-level English Language and Literature - KS 5
- ESOL - all levels
- Citizenship - Life in the UK test
- IELTS - all levels
- English for Academic Purposes and proofreading FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS (academic writing skills, essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - undergraduates and post-graduates
- proofreading of academic assignments (essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - foundation, undergraduates and post-graduates
- help with writing academic assignments (essays, reports, dissertations, projects) - foundation, undergraduates and post-graduates
- Bulgarian language - all levels
- Russian language - basic level

Teaching Experience:

I have been employed as a PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHER (ENGLISH), 11+ GRAMMAR SCHOOL EXAMS TUTOR AND ASSESSOR, MATHS TUTOR (PRIMARY SCHOOL, KS 1 AND 2), EAP, Business, IELTS, ESOL and English Language and Literature teacher and have worked at universities, colleges and schools across two countries. My experience teaching at four universities, and supporting children in schools and adults has helped me become an exceptionally versatile teacher.

I HAVE A VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING APPROACH, SHOWING UNDERSTANDING TO EACH STUDENT'S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND PREFERENCES AND TRY TO PERSONALISE LEARNING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. STUDENTS WARM TO ME QUICKLY AND ESTABLISH A GOOD RAPPORT FOR EFFECTIVE COOPERATION.

I have a proven record of tutoring students for a successful performance at the 11+ ENTRANCE EXAMINATION AND SUCCESSFUL ADMISSION AT GRAMMAR OR INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS.

All my primary school tutees have achieved their individual targets (whether improving basic literacy skills, or advancing in their level of reading or writing). The same success has been achieved in Mathematics.

My GCSE and A-level English pupils achieved 100% A-grades in their exams (both English Language and Literature).

I have tutored successfully for the Citizenship/Life in the UK test. I have the latest information of the test changes (from 2014). All my tutees have passed the Life in the UK test.

With university students I have expertise teaching the following academic skills:

structuring academic essays, implementing skills of cohesion and coherence and using the appropriate subject-related style
paraphrasing and summarising texts and applying correct grammar and suitable register in writing
using quotations and in-text citations and referencing them accordingly
delivering a presentation on a subject-specific topic, using Microsoft Powerpoint for effect
demonstrating understanding of key concepts and inferring the meaning of unfamiliar words from the context
developing speaking and seminar skills, useful for active participation in discussions and debates in the classroom and outside
interpreting numerical, statistical and financial data orally and in writing
demonstrating a clear understanding of what constitutes plagiarism and how to use the Harvard Referencing system for citation and the production of Reference Lists

At the academic skills pre-sessional courses at the University of Birmingham in 2012-2016 I gained even deeper experience supporting individual students with writing within very constrained time-limits. I guided all to success at their final assessments. I have had very positive feedback and comments of appreciation.

I have taught in various set-ups - whole class, pair work, group work, or one-to-one sessions. I am deeply interested in each student's individual learning needs and progress and one of my major strengths is differentiation. I sometimes prepare material at 4 levels of differentiation for a single class or small group. I use supportive strategies to boost students' confidence, at the same time challenging learners to achieve beyond their own expectations. I approach intense 1-to-1 sessions with the appropriate dynamics.

I am prepared to go beyond my 'job description' duties to help students with 'special needs'. I am interested in their individual circumstances and take them into account, where appropriate. I prepare resources to address their personal needs and interests. I review their progress and involve them in self-assessment towards autonomy of learning. I am familiar with the 'Assessment for Learning' policy and competent with implementing it widely.

I have worked successfully with students with dyslexia. At secondary school, one of my 'high-ability' dyslexic students scored an 'A' grade at her English GCSE, while another participated in a poetry competition. I have had success teaching students with autism and Asperger's as well.

I invest all of myself in my teaching. I am a highly trusted professional and have an exceptional rapport with my students. I am often quoted as a preferred tutor, who 'has the best way of explaining things' and 'is very patient, friendly and cheerful'. All students of mine - regardless whether at school, college or university - progressed by at least one level (even at short-term courses). A student with a debilitating illness on the BME, predicted to fail the course, not only passed it under my guidance, but achieved grades higher than his required level. In my 15-year teaching career I have never failed a student. I have achieved outstanding results at OFSTED observations. My latest annual lesson observation at BMETC was graded 'OUTSTANDING' and so was my performance at NAVITAS earlier this year. Another observation at BCU was unofficially deemed as 'the best on the course'. I have been invited to share exceptional ideas at training events and have also participated in numerous training activities at schools, colleges and universities. I often opt to peer-observe colleagues, to learn from their teaching styles.

Some more examples from my practice: a class of illiterate Yemeni housewives at BMETC, 2011, achieved a 100% pass at their ESOL exams, while 'advanced' international students at the BME, 2012 achieved some of the highest grades on the course. I have been successful dealing with pupils with behavioural problems at Harborne Hill School. Many reported an increasingly positive attitude to learning. I am a creative teacher and try to interest and enthuse students, so that they enjoy learning and celebrate their achievements.

Tutoring Approach:

First I negotiate the times and modes of tutoring with the parents of my potential pupil and agree on fees.
Then I organise a free initial meeting with the pupil and their parents, where I try to establish raport with the pupil. It is important, especially for children, to 'get a feel' of the new tutor and see if they can feel comfortable with her.
Then I try to access as much information as possible from the parents and the child about their progress at school and their attitude to school. If possible, I wish to see samples of the child's school work, or hear anything teachers have said/written about their progress.
During the first lesson I conduct an informal assessment of the pupil's skills - give them a piece of text to read, or free writing or short composition, or a selection of Maths problems to solve. When I get a clear picture of where my pupil stands with a certain skill, I create a short-term plan of work with them. I normally bring materials with me and do not ask parents to buy additional materials. If the parent wishes me to follow a certain self- help book, I am happy to oblige.
I update parents regularly of their child's progress - I try to do it after every lesson. I normally leave homework, designed to consolidate the material covered in the lesson, or develop their skills further. I wish parents to be involved as much as possible with helping or monitoring the completion of the homework.
I try to show my pupils as much respect as possible and affirm them as individuals. I acknowledge their birthdays, Christmas, or other family celebrations.
The parents can terminate the service at any time, with only one week notice.
I OFFER LESSONS VIA SKYPE AS WELL.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching full time for some years preferring to work in the private tutition/coaching area because the personal satisfaction is higher.

I have a first class honours degree in chemistry from the University of Leicester, a DPhil from the University of Oxford and a PGCE [Chemistry] from Oxford.

I keep up to date with my subject through regular Continuing Professional Development activities including reading about the subject and attending seminars and courses.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a Chartered Chemist and a Chartered Scientist.

Teaching Experience:

I was Head of Chemistry at Eton College [the famous public school] for four years and taught part time students chemistry at the University of Northampton.

Since 1989 I have been an Associate Lecturer in chemistry with The Open University teaching part-time students by distance learning and at Summer Schools. I currently teach an Open University chemistry course.

I have been coaching students in science and maths for over 30 years. Post-16 I have extensive specialist background in chemistry for Edexcel, OCR and AQA at AS and A2, including Salters, A-level plus I have experience of the International Baccalaureate, PreU and supporting vocational courses and home schooled students.

I have supported students in chemistry, biology, physics [as triple or double science, for the AQA, Edexcel and OCR syllabuses (including 21st Century science)] and maths at GCSE/IGCSE for many years and for helping with Independent School entrance. I have also supported students studying for equivalency testing for career development.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient, friendly and successful teacher specialising in chemistry at GCSE and A-level [and university level]. In addition I have extensive experience of tutoring science and mathematics to GCSE level. My experience covers helping students of all ages [from primary to adults] and from all backgrounds. I have a good sense of humour, am used to teaching on-line and in 1:1 situations. My approach is to boost a students` confidence in a relaxed environment resulting in greater success and self-belief which results in more enjoyment - and success - in the subjects being studied. Over the years I have successfully helped hundreds of students to achieve success.

In-between sessions students can contact me by email or telephone for support with exam questions or school work at no extra charge rather than waiting until the next meeting.

I am free to meet with students if the day time if this is more convenient. Alternatively I have a lot of experience of teaching via Skype if this is preferred. At the moment I only have one slot free on a Tuesday and one on a Wednesday

Currently I am teaching:

4 A-level chemistry students, 2 via Skype
1 IB chemistry student
2 GCSE science students
2 Home taught students
1 IGCSE chemistry, physics and biology student
2 GCSE maths students
1 Open University course in chemistry

For round trips of over 25 miles I charge 5 to cover the cost of fuel

Personal Description:
I'm a friendly, approachable person who enjoys supporting students to learn and develop their skills and confidence. Students tell me that I'm encouraging, patient, fun, supportive, organised and explain things well.
I enjoy supporting overseas students who are studying at university in the UK and can help you to develop your academic English skills, confidence and help with proof reading and preparation of university coursework, essays and assignments.
I also work with adults who live in the UK who want to improve their reading and writing skills. These may be native English speakers or people who have English as a second or additional language.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE in Adult, Higher and Further Education with a subject specialism in Adult Literacy. I've taught literacy in FE colleges and in community education and have tutored adults privately. I've taught in London, Hertford, Bolton and Stockport and have over 6 years' literacy teaching experience. My students do well in their exams and build confidence in a secure and supportive environment. I have been rated Grade 1 'Outstanding' in all my teaching inspections.
I have a RSA/Cambridge CELTA (Grade B) Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. I have over taught academic English at Manchester Metropolitan University and ESOL in further education colleges in the UK. In addition, I've taught EFL at language schools in London and Manchester in the UK, and in Poland, China and Japan. I have over 6 years' experience teaching EFL.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to get to know students and understand how they like to learn and what learning styles don't work for them. I spend time finding out what students find easy and difficult and what their goals for learning are. We can set targets together and really focus on what you need to achieve. It's important to me that students feel comfortable and supported in their learning in order to make good progress. I will plan for our sessions based on your learning goals and mark work and go through it with you.
I am organised, experienced and have been graded 'Outstanding' in all my workplace teaching inspections.
If you're an overseas university student I can develop your academic English skills and help with course work, proofreading essays and projects etc.
If you're an English speaker but want to improve your reading and writing to get promotion at work, help your kids with their learning, or to brush up your skills before studying again or for any other reason, I can help with all of this, too.

Personal Description:
I am a Polish native speaker who did a degree in Spanish at the University of Sheffield. I am passionate about foreign languages and I have some experience in teaching/ tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching Spanish, English and Polish for about 6 years now. I used to teach adults in a Further Education Centre ( Polish and Spanish) and I helped in MFL department in a secondary school in Leeds.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to tailor my lessons to learners' individual needs nad make it fun as it helps memorising new vocabulary. In my opinion learners should be immersed in new language/ culture as much as possible, therefore I always use videos, podcasts, DVDs and try to get my students to speak.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm in my final year of PhD Mechanical Engineering, University of Surrey where I design spacecraft. Before Surrey, I completed [Merit] MSc Space Science & Engineering, University College London and [1st Class] BSc Astrophysics, Aberystwyth University in Wales.

I'm 24 years old, originally from Stoke-on-Trent and have been DBS checked (valid from 12th January 2014) for my STEM Ambassador role. I was involved with a Rocket Club in a local Academy/secondary-school and advised another group of school students on their space project concerning power generation for a human outpost on Mars

I love and strongly believe in the STEM subjects because they're interesting, fulfilling and play a dominant role in the world we live

I enjoy energetic and competitive sports such as badminton and rock climbing, was Men's 2nd Team Badminton Captain and Vice President, play pool/snooker, read, draw and knit

Teaching Experience:

Through UKTutors I have tutored IGCSE Physics, GCSE Mathematics and KS2-3 Mathematics in 2014 (London) and 2015 (Guildford) through UKtutors - had to take a break for the sake of my PhD and other commitments

I have tutored undergraduate classes in University of Surrey covering Mathematics and Engineering e.g. numerical methods and stress analysis

I have coached badminton to secondary school pupils as part of the 5x60 Dragon Sports Programme in Wales during undergraduate studies

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly I identify the tutee's current situation and analyse the course syllabus as this varies from region-to-region and across examination boards. Everyone learns differently, and I tailor my tutoring accordingly, providing the most enjoyable and effective experience possible. I am always open and happy to take feedback and suggestions

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Music Tutor with a B.A. in Music Education from the RSAMD and a Dip.ABRSM in Piano Teaching.
I offer one to one lessons in Piano, Violin, Singing, Keyboard, Viola and Music Theory as well as fully understanding the new National 4/5 and Higher qualifications and I can provide tutoring for both the practical and listening elements of these.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over 12 years now, and have provided private instrumental lessons in the North Lanarkshire area for 10 years. I have over 60 pupils currently, and frequently put students through both SQA and ABRSM exams with an exceptionally high pass rate.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to Tutoring is student-led, and I will devise and implement individual learning plans to suit each pupil. Usually this will include a goal of passing an exam, but the goal we work to could be a concert, a music festival, a particular piece you would like to be able to play or just wanting to improve in a certain aspect of technique.

Personal Description:
I am professional piano teacher based in Cardiff, also a postgraduate student of Master in Music Piano Accompaniment (MMus) in Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. I have completed my Bachelor Degree Classical Piano from UCSI University (Malaysia) in year 2013, achieving upper second class honours under the tutelage of Professor Dr.P'ngTean Hwa. Currently I am studying with many well-known accompanists such as Benjamin Frith, Robin Green, Simon Lepper and Joseph Middleton.

At the age of 20, I held a Certificate of Excellence from Trinity Arts Award for her ATCL in Solo Piano, and received my LTCL certificate in 2014. I was awarded Certificate of Academic Excellence by UCSI Dean's Award for both years 2011 & 2012 during her years in University. In 2010, I was a finalist in the Classical Piano Duet Category in Roland Piano Festival.

I am an active performer as an accompanist. Recently in Cardiff, I participated in few competitions with singers and violinist such as Music in the Vale and Royal Over-Seas League. I am now a piano teacher at Vale School of Music.

Teaching Experience:

I have started my teaching career from 2009, specialize in both piano and violin.
I was a piano and violin tutor in 3 music school and also a private home tutor before based in UK.

Besides one-to-one lesson, I have experience in organizing group class at different age group varies from age 4 to adulthood.
I taught piano students from beginners up to advanced level. I am very familiar with ABRSM syllabus.

I specialize in Classical music, but I have great experience in teaching pop songs and jazz music.

I do not limit myself to just teaching instruments, I was a choral conductor in Carnation Youth Choir for 3 years.

Tutoring Approach:

Before starting a lesson, I will have a talk with my student to understand their ultimate goal in music and what they expect to achieve in their music learning in order to guide them to achieve their goal.

I realized many students do not know how to practice. I am confident of my own teaching methods that will help students to practice in effective ways.

I believe there are multiple teaching methods to cater the vast variety of students having different characters and abilities. I will always find the most appropriate and effective ways, tailoring to their needs, to develop them and helping them in achieving their aims. Ultimately, learning music with joyful heart is important.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly maths tutor local to Camborne, Falmouth and the surrounding area offering one-to-one tutoring to give extra support not often given in the classroom. I work full time as an design engineer, so I am available in the evenings and weekends. I teach up to GCSE level maths I have a 1st class masters degree in engineering. Whether you just need the occasional session to go over problem areas within the curriculum, or if you need regular study time, or even just help with homework, I am flexible depending on what the student needs. I can tutor at your home if you require, but I also offer tutoring from my own home, in a relaxed environment.

Teaching Experience:

I have 2 years experience working as a design engineer, applying my maths skills everyday. I have tutored on and off for 4 years teaching both maths and also offering guitar lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to try and understand what the student requires, and address these requirements specifically to give the best results. Should you need help on one aspect of the curriculum (people often shudder at the thought of algebra!), we can overcome the fear the y's and x's and master the topic. Should you need help keeping up in the classroom, or not understanding before the teacher moves on, we can take our time in the evening to make sure nothing has been missed. Should you need to get through an exam, we can make a study plan together to make sure you get the grade you want! I believe there is no 'one size fits all' to learning maths, and we can discuss all the details at your leisure.
