Personal Description:
I have taught to all levels from reception class at primary school through to secondary school, sixth form college and university level.
Being mixed British and French-Swiss, I am able to offer authentic French whilst still appreciating the difficulties from an English speaker's point of view. I am also qualified to teach Spanish to all levels and have years of experience in teaching the language.
I have a friendly approach and my lessons are very well organised with a sense of purpose. They are also individually tailored to meet the student's specific needs. I have worked as a GCSE examiner on numerous occasions and have coached and taught AS/A level groups.
Should you be interested in either extra exam tuition, starting a new language or brushing up on previous knowledge, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you are willing to put in the effort, I can guarantee results from my end!

Teaching Experience:

French, Spanish and English as a Second Language - 4 years at a sixth form college
English and History - 4 years at university level
French, Spanish, History and RE - 3 years in grammar schools
French and Spanish - 6 years in adult education
All subjects - 3 years in primary schools

Tutoring Approach:

Pleasant, friendly disposition with a great deal of understanding and patience!

Personal Description:
I work for a large firm of city accountants in London. I have completed my chartered accountancy exams and will be a qualified chartered accountant as of the end of August 2015.

I studied French language and literature at Oxford University from which I graduated with a 2:1. I studied French, Latin and English at A-level.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children of all age groups, from nine year-olds to A-Level students, in Latin, English, French and Economics. Most recently, I have tutored a thirteen year-old boy, helping him to pass his Common Entrance exams and get into Eton College with excellent results.

Tutoring Approach:

I can help anybody with speaking and writing the French language as well as analysing a broad range of French literature. For English, I can assist anyone with the creative, linguistic and grammatical side of the subject as well as the critical analysis of both set texts and unseen passages. For Latin, I can help with literary analysis and translation, both Latin-to-English and English-to-Latin. My style of tutoring is flexible - it is entirely dependent upon the nature of tutoring that is required.

Personal Description:
I am 29 years old and have been teaching A level and GCSE English and history at sixth form college for seven years, in which time my results have far surpassed national pass rates. Moreover, due to these outstanding pass rates and innovative teaching methods, my English department has been awarded a grade 1 'Outstanding' for the past 4 years. I have a passion for English and history, and take great pride in providing an excellent education to all of my students, seeing it as crucial to success in their later careers.

Teaching Experience:

I have a broad range of experience turning around failing classes, as well as challenging high achieving students. In my teaching career thus far I have taught a wide age range from 9-18 years, and specialise in teaching troubled students and those lacking confidence, as well as pushing very bright pupils. Since I began teaching at my institution, English pass-rates have received a 25% upwards leap in two years, so that the vast majority of my classes are now passing with high academic grades and attaining entry to prestigious preparatory schools and/or universities. With these excellent results I have now been made an advanced teaching practitioner, tasked with passing on my skills to other teachers and helping drive up standards

Tutoring Approach:

Besides enjoying superb results, my pupils benefit from a relaxed yet challenging atmosphere, with high commitment being expected of them and this has shown to bring both personal and academic growth, which is always pleasing to see. Moreover, in strengthening self-esteem and exciting the minds of my students, to provide them with the skills they need to excel in later life, I seek to provide them with only the finest education possible.

Personal Description:
Very personable and hardworking.My teaching style can be the catered to the needs of each specific individual learner.
I also try to use humour to balance out the serious side of teaching, in order to develop a strong working relationship with the person(s) I am helping.
Teaching styles can and will include a variety of techniques, depending on the topic area at that time. I am comfortable working wth learners of all ages, and have worked with those from primary through to Adult learners.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught film and media at Knowsley community college for 13 years, and also taught communication studies in my final year at the colllege. Though it was mainly A level, I have also taught Btec units, and can teach gcse film and media studies, too. I have written one film book, and been published extensively with other journal articles for film and media topics - e.g. "Media Magazine" (English and Media centre) and "Splice" (Auteur publishing) film journal.

I have also more recently taught media at two pupIL referral units on merseyside, working with learners who are no longer suitable for mainstream education. Since 2015, I have been an examiner for A.S. film studies since 2015.
Throughout 2016, I have been a tutor in English, including working on on one with primary pupils (e.g. SATS exam prep, literacy and numeracy work) and also pupils studying foundation English/GCSE/igcse courses etc.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to fulfill the potential academic ability of each student I work with, regardless of their starting point.
Though my approach is obviously a serious one, I can also ensure a light hearted tone when the time is right during any lesson, also. My significant teaching experience means I have applied a range of techniques, and methods of differentiation to get the best out of the learner.Clearly one to one teaching requires a different approach to that of one used when teaching over 20 plus learners.
My aim is to link the teaching the learning to the work the student is currently doing on their academic course, to ensure the the best outcomes for the learner, and build on the progress already being made. I always start by making contact with the teacher/tutor where relevant, and use this as a starting point before beginning my own tuition.

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.

Personal Description:
I am currently a second year student in London School of Economics and Political Science. I major in Mathematics and Statistics, with dedicated spirit to enlighten my tutees with my knowledge of mathematics. During my A-Levels ( CIE board) , I scored A* in both Mathematics and Further Mathematics and also A in Physics. At the same period I also attended Euclid's Mathematics Competition and scored within the top 15 percentile. Besides, I have also developed many ways of understanding mathematics through readings and attending optional lectures , and I can't wait to share my excitement to bring my tutee along the journey in search of more and more "Eureka!" moments.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 4 years since I was in my high school. During my A-Levels , I also joined the Tutor-Tutee program which I was assigned to a few tutees and I was responsible for their progress during the entire year. My recent experience in London was about 4 months ago right before the A-Levels exam, I taught a British-born Arabian within 2 months and managed to bring his grade up substantially ( from E/D to B) and earned him a place in University of Exeter.

Tutoring Approach:

Different from most teaching styles portrayed in class, I use different ways of explaining from either easy or intermediate levels to relate to specific chapters in the text book. While text books being the main course material, rather than asking my tutee to blindly remember all the formulas, I will teach them to derive all of them and understand the meaning implied within.
I strongly do not encourage remembering the questions from past year papers, instead , I will teach the very basic- the essence of specific chapters to understand and to master and this will arm my tutee with the ability to answer all type of questions during the exam. Also available for students with intermediate level seeking for advanced or intensive type of tutoring.

Personal Description:

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching as a teacher assistant for undergrads courses at the University of Sussex from 2010 up to now. I did some teaching during my undergrad as well in Mexico.

Tutoring Approach:

I did some tutoring during my undergrad. Nowadays, after being teaching for a long time University students I feel more comfortable with my comunication skills and I can teach A-levels without any problem.

I am open to charge less or nothing in the first session to test if our understanding is ideal for you to learn as you want. I do not want you to waste your money.

Personal Description:
I am studying Computer Systems Engineering at City, University of London, meaning that I study engineering mathematics every day.. Having achieved over 80% in my first year at university encourages me to carry on a high standard of achievements in my academic journey and then professional career.

Studying Mathematics at University has allowed me to master diverse areas of mathematics from Calculus to Linear Algebra. I am confident I can inspire tutee`s to enhance their problem-solving skills and understanding of mathematical terms.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like some general advice.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for two years and have help students from most academic levels, from foundation university to KS3.

I am currently involved in a volunteering program where I teach secondary school students.

Having experience in helping students from different academic levels I am confident that I can push my tutees to perform to the best of their abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I start by explaining the meaning of mathematical functions or just give a summary of how this can be understood by relating it to daily life or through the use of logic. If they manage to understand, I will go through multiple examples with them. Finally, I will leave some questions for them to do and as they work I request that they tell me every step they make and the reasoning behind it.

I also offer a past paper session, which includes me and the tutee solving a paper together that will help him advance his exam skills and improve their confidence.

Note: I might request to see the tutee`s syllabus and lecture notes as this will help me be in sync with the teacher/lecturer. From this, I am able to thoroughly prepare my sessions, and straight away start to build tutee confidence by helping them become knowledgeable in areas they were once weakest in.

Personal Description:
I was born into a family of educators who instilled in me a love of learning.I earned my Bachelor of Engineering degree from Anna University India 2014 ,after that I have worked for 3 years in one of the leading Multi National Company called Wartsila India Ltd and presently pursuing my Masters in Electrical Power systems Engineering in the University of Birmingham UK.

Teaching Experience:

I have studied as well as trained the simplest and the hardest Mathematics which makes me appropriate tutor for Maths subject. I know the subjects concept, ideas and problems inside out. I can introduce Maths to real life applications from my experience and knowledge that I've gained. I can make Maths fun and can help to develop the core basement for the students. I can make learning relevant to student's interests,thus create more students who actually care about what they are learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to build strong and intense relationship with students, because I believe personal relationship is the key to the students success. The more closer the student feels, the more respect and consideration the teacher earns. I always treat every student same because nobody in this world is lazy or not capable, its the way that we find out the best in them is the key. I always listen and communicate early and often with parents,that helps me to map a better plan for success.

I always believe that lesson planning is important and this intuitively leads to student's success. For my session following points will be covered about the topic
1. Objective of the course
2. Introduction
3.Body of the course
4. Checks and Home Works
5. Conclusion

I'm aware of the UK curriculum and know about the key stages and the assessments. So I will be giving assessments through out the programme to check the student's development in the subject and the progress will be updated to their parents after each session which makes parents more updated about the child's progress and the same will make me meet the expectation levels of the parents.

Personal Description:
Hello and welcome to my profile! It's great to have you here!

OK, so I'll tell you a little about myself… My name is Aman. I am a qualified EFL/ESL teacher and I have been working abroad for the last 16 years in different countries from Thailand to Dubai.

For the last 5 years I was working with the British Council as an academic manager in Qatar. Here I was managing educational programmes and a team of teachers, which I loved! I provided training for teachers and worked on curriculum development.

When I am not working, I love movies, music, socialising and meeting new people and learning about new cultures! I am also a big coffee drinker.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching English as a foreign language.

I have taught students of all levels from beginner to advanced and have worked with students from all over the world helping them to improve and develop their general English language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking by designing lessons to bring out their full potential.

In addition to teaching general English, my ELT specialism for my Cambridge DELTA was Exam Preparation Classes. Therefore, I have solid experience and knowledge of helping learners prepare for the IELTS exam and get the band they want by focusing on the strategies needed in each module. Moreover, I can also help you prepare for the Cambridge First (FCE) exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Although, the heading states 'Approach to Tutoring', I look at it as 'Our Approach to Learning'.

Together, we will look at YOUR English language goals, and the best way to achieve them, as every learner has different needs.

Lessons are learner-centred, that means I do not teach in a 'lecture' style, but provide opportunities for you to produce and practise language and then look at ways to further develop and improve that language. It is important for me that you feel comfortable and relaxed in these sessions. Lessons should be enjoyable and engaging for you (and me!).

There is error correction throughout lessons, but this is where you will self-correct with my guidance making you more aware of which areas need more focus.

Depending on your level, I use a range of materials from coursebooks, internet, newspapers, magazines to podcasts and videos.

I will give you regular homework, which will help to reinforce what you have learnt and give you more independence in using English. My aim is for you to feel more confident in any situation where you have to use English.

Feel free to contact me and let's talk about what you need. You can ask me any questions and I'll be happy to explain.

There is no obligation and don't worry, I don't bite!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aman
