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:
I am a first year student studying physics at The University of Edinburgh.


I have a recent clear child protection check.

Teaching Experience:

I enjoyed helping in an Intermediate 2 maths class during my sixth year at school and got very positive feedback from the people I tutored and from the class teacher.
I also have experience of tutoring my younger siblings in a wide range of subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make tutoring an enjoyable experience.

Having left school in 2012, I am very familiar with the curriculum and know exactly how people preparing for exams feel.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I love reading, writing and reading some more. I also enjoy sketching while listening to music. I am a frank person, have an straightforward approach to everything in life and like people to behave the same way with me (which always does not happen). I love to have a laugh, but don't worry, I can be serious when needed( for example, when teaching your children English and History).

Teaching Experience:

While I have never tutored for money, I have an extensive tutoring experience. I volunteered to teach illiterate students English as a part of a volunteering program from my high school in India and have been a part of that program for the past two years. I also used to tutor my two siblings in History, Geography and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that children learn best in a stress free environment. If they feel it is fun and challenging, they will be more willing to learn than if they feel it to be an obligation. English is an easy subject and children enjoy learning it, once they realize the joys that English has to offer. History can be challenging due to the vast amounts one has to learn by heart but steady habit of writing down answers to questions helps more than reading the material ten times. Other than that, History is a vastly interesting subject which helps us understand the workings of the present society and of course, knowledge about our ancestors. Geography is relatively straightforward subject. A lot of practice and a dedicated perusal of it should be enough to get good scores. While it can be relatively dry, it can be made interesting with pictures and videos.I focus on exam technique, past papers as well as text work (English Lit.)

Personal Description:
I am a Taiwanese who base in Edinburgh. Before I moved back to Scotland in 2014, I was a doctoral student at the University of Chicago in Greek and Latin. I have a BA degree in history from National Taiwan University (2006). After I spent a year studying Greek and Latin at Trinity College Dublin (2005-6), I gained a post-baccalaureate certificate in Greek and Latin from Columbia University in the City of New York (2008) and then a MPhil in Latin from the University of St. Andrews in 2011. Afterwards, I spent three years pursuing PhD research on Greek and Latin at the University of Chicago. At the present, I am photographing Edinburgh and Dublin and preparing my portfolio, exhibition, and photo books. I am very much enthusiastic about finding knowledge in both textual and visual worlds. Moreover, I am writing stories about Taiwanese diaspora for a journal in Taiwan. When it comes to Latin, I am currently reading Statius, Tibullus, and Seneca because I believe learning Latin is a life-long career that requires one's enthusiasm and dedication.

Teaching Experience:

I have been learning Latin for more than a decade, at National Taiwan University, Trinity College Dublin, Columbia University, the University of St. Andrews and the University of Chicago. I have TAed and taught Latin in Taiwan and the States. During this period, I have helped Cambridge University Press to translate Cambridge Latin Course series into Chinese Mandarin. During my stay in Chicago (2011-13), I also helped young people who have learning and reading difficulty.

Tutoring Approach:

Latin:
Apart from solving the problems of your school work, we will do more exercise, such as unseen translation and English-Latin translation, to find out your weak and strong points. The exercise will help me prepare materials that will help you memorise syntax, vocabulary, and grammar. Grammar can be very boring and put down students' interest in Latin. However, learning through reading interesting, alien, and exotic stories will enhance students' motivation to look into the Roman Antiquity. Reading will also more effectively shed lights on the parts of grammar and syntax we need to make up. Moreover, I will show you how to master speech recognition tactics in order to develop a stronger reading comprehension. I believe in the end of this course, we will have a better understand of Latin as a language and Latin literature as a whole.




English
I have been learning English since I was fifteen. I have overcome many difficulties, such as taking language exams, living in foreign lands, and doing academic works. I will share those experience with you. This tutoring will focus on the various needs and interests of individual students. You may bring the materials that interest you. We also can look into big books, newspapers or stories covering your the stories of your country. We can also look into websites which offer wonderful resources for people whose first language is not English, such as BBC. By reading, listening and discussing together, I will help you find out your weak points and we will start from there.

Personal Description:
My name is Iona, I'm currently studying my HND in Acting and Theatre Performance at Edinburgh's Telford college and hope to do my BA Hons degree next year. I've studied Theatre, Philosophy, Music, English, German and Spanish, and this year I am also touching on dance and vocal skills.

Teaching Experience:

I've done a JCSLA course whereupon I learnt how to teach and work with young people in a learning environment. My placement involved me doing an hour a week of teaching dance in a local primary school, where I learned how to interact with the children and work with them to incorporate their ideas and get the best results we could.
In my HNC course last year I had classes in how to run a drama workshop, and I've experienced hands on many youth theatre workshops and had lots of practice in drama games and exercises.
Last year I also tutored a student through Higher (AS Level) Philosophy.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm a very friendly girl and I like to make the learning environment as relaxed as possible, as I think this produces the best ideas. I'm quite interactive and hands on, and I like to use a lot of the student's own ideas and develop these, rather than spoon-feeding them, as I think in creative subjects, students flourish more with their own originality than with forced direction.
I don't set a lot of home-study as I appreciate students will already be receiving a lot, but there may be materials I will ask them to look over or read.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am Alfiya. I am a professional qualified and experienced tutor in individual and group Russian teaching. I have been in Edinburgh for almost 6 years and have been a tutor in Russian, freelance interpreter and translator for all this time. I like communicating and meeting new people, friendly, easy-going, open, quick-minded. Have a passion for teaching Russian. In my free time I like reading, learning about different cultures, going in for sport, socialising.

Teaching Experience:

I graduated from Irkutsk State Linguistic University in Russia in 1996. Had been teaching English for Russian students and Russian for foreign students at Kazan State University for 15 years (Russia). My specialities are: Russian from Elementary to Advanced.

In 1999 I studied at the Open Society Institute-Samara where I attended Soros Intensive Teacher Training Course for University Instructors in Samara Russia. In 2000 I finished the course in 'Improvement of Professional Skills on Teaching Methodology of Foreign Languages' at Kazan State University in Russia. In 2005 I attended the Conversational Spanish course in Spanish Centre of Education and Culture at Kazan State University. Back to Russia I worked as a Lecturer in English at Kazan State Teaching University and at Kazan State University as a Lecturer in Russian and English. I participated as a tutor in English in the Presidential Programme of Russia by giving lectures on Business English for top managers, directors of companies and firms and businessmen to take part in international business as Russia opened up to worldwide and free trade. 10 of my former students went onto internships in Greece, Italy, Denmark, Germany and Japan after finishing this programme. I am the author of four scientific publications in the field of linguistic relations in Russian, English and Tatar.

While living in the UK I have worked as a freelance tutor and translator for Scottish&Newcastle, Scottish Parliament, NHS and Rudolf Steiner School. I am really proud of the fact that among my students are people of different ages, knowledge of Russian and purposes of learning it and who are professionals in different fields for example in language and science teaching, sales and marketing, medical research, social work, to name just a few.

At the present moment I am doing the HND Tourism course at Stevenson College. Last year I completed successfully the HNC Tourism course at the same college.

Tutoring Approach:

Always try to make students interested in the subject I teach. Not afraid to praise them even if they do not get immediate good results. Tend to get feedback from them. Plan carefully each lesson. Use the Internet and PC in preparing for lessons. Try to make lessons interesting, various by combining different aspects of learning a language: Grammar, Vocabulary, Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading. Each course that you will attend is tailored to your needs and depends on your level of knowing Russian and purpose of learning. I teach Russian through the Skype system as well. Each month organise Russian Converstaion Club for my students to help them learn some more about Russia apart from lessons. We discuss various topics in Russian (the topic of each session is given in advance), do different activities based on the theme of the session. The aim of Russian Conversation Club is to improve Russian conversational skills of my students and help them learn more about Russian culture and history.

Personal Description:
I'm a 23-year-old graduate of the University of Cambridge, having recently completed my studies and earning a First-Class Honours degree in Natural Sciences (Physics) with a Merit at the Masters course in Mathematics. Have lived in Leeds for a while, moving to Edinburgh to work on a PhD at the end of the Summer. Am keen on sharing my knowledge and experience with the next generation.

Teaching Experience:

Have spent two separate periods of two weeks volunteering at a local high school and assisting in Maths lessons. Worked with students of all ages and abilities from Years 7 through to 13, and gave presentations about my work at University.

Tutored one student between November 2012 and April 2013 with positive feedback. A reference is not yet available. I have worked in the past with several students during lessons, and also spent one hour with a student that helped life her GCSE maths grade from B to A. In addition have prepared several fully-worked and explained answers to questions posted online (links available on request).

Tutoring Approach:

I try to ensure that the student is guided through the subject as clearly as possible, with a lot of questions asked of the student when appropriate, that hopefully will allow him/her to think through the topic for themselves. In addition I aim to provide a clear understanding of why the topic being studied is important/ where it allows us to end up, and so on.

Personal Description:
A resident of Edinburgh for the past twelve years I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things myself. I am fairly well travelled, enjoy the arts and have a passion for working alongside others to help them achieve their goals.

I am a professional actor with degree level qualifications in both Philosophy (Dundee University) and Acting (Queen Margaret University College).

Teaching Experience:

I have worked with adults in improving spoken and written English for UK degree entry level. I have also worked with college and university students in the Middle East (UAE) to train science and drama education in both Arabic and English.

For several years I have visited schools in both the public and private sectors delivering reading, drama and science communication classes.

I have regularly taught 5-15 years drama in private classes and enjoy working with pre-drama school entrants of all ages in working on giving the best entrance audition possible.

Tutoring Approach:

I am confident at creating a structured approach that works with a pupil's own strengths and needs to provide a tailor-made package for learning.

Ideally I meet with each student to discuss their learning needs, current level and expected outcomes.

Although it is important to push the boundaries of learning, it should always be a workload that is both manageable and individually tailored.

People learn best when they are enjoying themselves, so I try my best to make learning fun and interactive.

Personal Description:
I'm a graduate of the University of Edinburgh's MA (Hons) Latin degree. I've got a working background in arts management and administration, but I'm hoping to utilise my degree to encourage prospective Latinists to give the subject a go!

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring in Latin and English Literature five years ago, both for beginners and up to GCSE. I currently have a tutee learning beginner's Latin. While at university I tutored other students in beginner's Latin and Classical Civilisation. I've also spent the past few years providing training for adults in the workplace, so I'm happy to tutor adult learners (both beginners and experienced) as well.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer tutoring using practical methods - such as discussions and games - rather than just learning by rote. However, I adapt my tutor style based on what the tutee requires. I've been trained in a variety of methods to engage young and adult learners, and will try out several to see what suits the tutee best. For more experienced learners, such as A-Level / Advanced Higher candidates, I will identify which areas of the subject (vocabulary, grammar, literature) need most tuition, and decide with the tutee which to focus upon. I am happy to tutor individuals or in small groups (in which case a discounted rate can be agreed upon.)

I'm semi-retired. I was head of Business Studies at Stevenson College (now Edinburgh College) until 2008. Apart from teaching, I do some voluntary work with the Citizens Advice Bureau. In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis and golf (badly) plus walking with friends. I also enjoy cooking, reading and travelling.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching accounting for over 25 years on a variety of courses at different levels - ranging from introductory book-keeping to financial and management accounting on HNC/D and professional courses such as AAT, IAB etc. Since my retirement I have been teaching Int 2/Higher, A Level Accounting on a one to one basis at a private tutorial college in Edinburgh. Recent students I have helped have been studying HIgher Accounting, A Level Accounting and AAT.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching depends on the tutee/student. At the end of the day I am there to help you to understand the subject you are studying and then to pass an assessment or exam. I focus on explaining the topic/ subject as clearly and simply as possible. I can also focus on exam technique and how to perform as well as you can in the exam.

  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)
  • A-Level or Highers (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello, my name is Ana. Nice to meet you!

I am a qualified and experienced language tutor based in Edinburgh. If you or your child are having difficulties with Spanish or German, preparing for National 5 or GCSE exams, or perhaps just need some extra support with schoolwork, I can help.

I am a Spanish native speaker born and raised in Spain. I attended University both in Spain and Germany. After graduating I moved to Germany permanently, where I spent seven years working as a translator for the United Nations. I love foreign languages and I want you to love them too (or at least, not dread them). I'm fully fluent in German. Having learned it as a second language myself, I know all the tricky bits and how to explain them so you'll understand them once and for all.

Now I live in beautiful Edinburgh, where I have set up my own tutoring and translation business. My mission is to help students like you get better grades in Spanish and German.

Private tutoring can do wonders for a student's confidence. Whether you are struggling to keep up in class or just need a bit of extra support, you'll benefit greatly from one-to-one tuition. After a few sessions with me you can be sure to make tangible progress that will be reflected on your grades. If you're stressed about sitting National 5 or GCSE in May, stop worrying. I'm here to make sure you are fully prepared for exam success.

Exam time looms but it's not too late! Let me help you get the grades you long for.

Teaching Experience:

I am passionate about helping my students to improve their grades and achieve their full potential in Spanish and German. Over the years, I have:

Gathered +1000 hours of one-to-one tutoring
Helped students to build confidence and achieve exam success
Raised the performance of students by at east one full letter grade
Received positive feedback from students and parents

Tutoring Approach:

Often in school there is only a limited time to review a student's work and understanding. That may not always be enough. Having a private tutor gives students an extra chance to review the areas in which they may be struggling. We work together on the areas of the language that require improvement (grammar, spelling, essay writing) building up a solid foundation. I have a range of extra exercises & activities to reinforce what is being taught at school.

For help with school lessons, we sit together and go through your homework or class work. In doing that, we will come across the concepts that are giving you trouble and I will fill in the gaps.

If you need help to prepare for National 5 or GCSE, we work with past and specimen papers almost entirely, honing exam technique until it becomes second nature.

Get in touch now to find out how I can help you get better grades!

Personal Description:
I am a young professional with a strong background in volunteer mentoring with children and young people, as well as a solid academic resume. I was home educated (tutorial-based) through primary and secondary school, and went on to study English Literature and History at the University of Edinburgh.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working since June 2011 at Mackenzie School of English, teaching English as a second language to foreign high school students.

Also, I have been a private tutor since February 2011, working with a range of ages and levels in both English Literature and History.

As well as my professional experience, I have been involved in youth work, summer camps, and one-to-one mentoring of young people for the past eight years or so. Working at summer camps has given me experience in both group work - teaching and leading discussions - as well as in one-to-one mentoring. Currently I am involved in a weekly youth club here in Leith, working with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from the local community.

Tutoring Approach:

Coming from a rather unconventional educational background, I would bring with me a deep passion for the need to create a tailored and bespoke educational experience for each individual young person. I know how incredible my own learning experience has been, instilling within me a value and love of learning that will remain with me my whole life. I would approach tutoring with this same passion. Learning excites and challenges me, and I believe that it has become limited in the classroom at times. When a young person can see someone else passionate and excited about an aspect of knowledge and understanding, the ramifications are huge. Not only does tutoring provide an avenue for this one-to-one mentoring, but I believe it is also the most powerful method of teaching. It is in that bond of mutual regard and respect that true learning occurs. These passions and beliefs are foundational to my approach of tutoring and mentoring.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching Latin and Classical Studies for over 10 years. I have a BA Hons in Latin and Classical Studies from University College Dublin, a Masters in Classics from King's College London and a Diploma in Spoken Latin, for which I studied under the translator for the Vatican. I am passionate about my subject and love to share my enthusiasm for Latin with my students. As well as private tutoring, I also teach Latin and Classics in schools (both primary and secondary), run after school Latin clubs, and am also training teachers who will teach Latin as part of a project I am involved with to introduce Latin into state schools. I also teach Classical Studies and Ancient History.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching Latin and Classical Studies for over 5 years. My students have been of all ages and at vastly different stages in their learning. I have helped students who have been struggling with school coursework, helped prepare students for exams, and also designed entire curricula for students who wish to learn from scratch. I come with excellent references and proven results, with some previous students having gone on to study Classics at Oxbridge and other third level institutions, obtaining Latin scholarships to college, and even going on to teach Latin themselves in secondary schools. I have experience of private tutoring, small groups, classroom teaching at both primary and secondary level, exam preparation classes, after school clubs and running teaching workships to train future teachers of Latin.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my tutorials to fit the needs of each individual student.

Subjects
  • Latin

  • 11+ (secondary) (15 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I attended three other different national science schools held in the best Lithuanian universities. At "Physics Olympus" I learned experimental Physics and acquired strong theoretical background while at the Chemistry school "Knowledge" I boosted my practical skills working in university laboratories and broadened my theoretical knowledge. In "National Students Academy" not only have I extended my knowledge in Chemistry| but also| I have met the most talented students in the country| improved group working and cooperation skills| visited one of the "Thermo Fisher Scientific" centres and gained experience in Biochemistry. I was a participant of the International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) in Iran in 2012 and in India in 2013. In the latter I was awarded a Silver Medal. In 2015 I participated in the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) in India. My knowledge was awarded either Gold or Silver Medals in Physics and Chemistry National Olympiads every year. In the Mathematics and Biology National competitions I received honourable mentions. Now I want to share my knowledge with others in maths and natural sciences.

Teaching Experience:

I have 1 year tutoring experience of Chemistry preparing a student for National State Exams which are equivalents to A level exams. I have been also helping 11 years old student with his homework of Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I tend to explain the basic principles firstly, later I am developing students' s ability to solve problems by themselves starting from easy questions and building knowledge to thinking required solutions.

Personal Description:
Hey, I'm Vhinoth, currently a third year medical student at Edinburgh university. I'm 20 years old, and from London, where I took GCSEs and A-levels. I have a good academic record, with A*'s in 3 A-Levels and 11 A*'s at GCSE, with a strong background in maths and science.

I took these in England, so I would need a bit of prior notice to brush up on the syllabus here in Scotland, but I am very confident I can help you or your child with their subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I was involved in helping younger students struggling with their subjects whilst at school for a number of years, and helped many achieve their true potential at both GCSE and A-level. I have always had great feedback, and try to engage with my tutees as much as possible.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim will be trying to help you or your child understand the concepts fully, then going through practice/past exam papers to help them test their knowledge and refine their exam technique.

I will try to to provide a friendly atmosphere, and encourage my tutees to ask questions and to work through problems methodically. I am always happy to be contacted at short notice and to provide feedback on completed work set by me, or by someone else. I enjoy the teaching and I'll be trying to be as helpful as possible. Please contact me if interested!
