Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher of German and Spanish and I have been teaching for a number of years. I am now working as a teacher of Modern Languages in a secondary school.

Teaching Experience:

I have extensive experience of one-to-one and small group tutoring and I have a thorough knowledge of the Scottish school curriculum including arrangements for the new National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher courses. I have now taught the new Curriculum for Excellnece courses in both German and Spanish and have a good understanding of levels and assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a great way of learning a language because you benefit from full attention of your tutor. I plan and deliver my lessons to suit my pupils' needs. Passing an exam often needs specialist preparation with someone who knows the exam system and can guide their pupil/student through e.g. unit assessments, Talking exam preparation etc.
On the other hand, we learn languages to use them independently, free from the constraints of selected exam topics. This is where vocabulary, language structure and grammar come together and enables the learner to use their learning in different contexts. I teach all areas effectively using tried and tested techniques and resources that will help my learners improve their knowledge of the language.

Personal Description:
I am a former Head of English and Assistant Headteacher in a local secondary school and have a very strong record of raising pupils' attainment. I have worked with all year groups, 7-13 (age 11-18), and have experience working with pupils with special needs, as well as having done lots of work on stretching more able students. English is my passion and it's one I am enthusiastic to share with others. I graduated from Oxford University in 2005 and am currently Senior Examiner at GCSE for one of the major exam boards, so I know what they really want to see! I am also a 'subject expert' in English at Ofqual. I now oversee the training and work of up to 80 examiners so have very significant experience in this area.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2006, having taken my PGCE at Homerton College in Cambridge. Since then I have worked full time at a local school teaching English, although I have now returned to full time study so have better availability for tutoring. I have marked both GCSE English Language and English Literature for OCR and AQA and CIE, and also mark A Level. I am aware my price point is higher than others, but this reflects the years of teaching and direct examining experience which I will bring to your sessions; I believe I am very well placed to help students achieve their potential.

Tutoring Approach:

In consultation with student and parents/carers, we would put together a programme which would be tailored to meet the needs to of the student. I always try to create a relaxed atmosphere, and encourage humour!

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable person with many years of language learning experience so I know myself how hard it can feel at times when learning a language!
I hold a BA in Modern Language Studies (French & Spanish) and a Certificate in Italian with the Open University.
I have A levels in both French [B] and Spanish [B] as well as GCSEs.

Teaching Experience:

I have spent 3 months living and voluntarily teaching English in Costa Rica.

I spent close to a year weekly voluntarily teaching local immigrants to communicate in English.

I spent 2 years working in a secondary school as a Learning Support Assistant for children with Special Educational Needs.

Since 2012, I have been working for Lindsay Does Languages, my own language tuition business. I now tutor online.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that rows and rows of vocab are not only monotonous but also repetitive, and dare I say it, boring!
There are many more fun and varied ways to teach and learn a language. It's important to remember that everyone has different learning styles and what works with one brilliantly, may go straight over an other's head! However, a positive and energetic approach is always necessary.

Personal Description:
I can provide tuition in a wide range of Economics and Business related subjects e.g. Marketing, Accounting, HRM. I live in the Bournemouth area but am willing to travel to provide tuition and I am also able to provide Skype/e-mail tuition for those students who live a long distance from me. I will also provide references from past students, reflecting the value added I can offer you, in order that your grades will improve. I am able to help anyone at any level, from GCSE up to Masters and beyond.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and lecturing for over 25 years and have accumulated much experience which I am able to pass on to my students. One of the key benefits I can offer you as a student is providing critical analysis and evaluation when completing your assignments. This is extremely important for grading and often means the difference between a 2:1 and 2:2 or higher. For the dissertation it is fundamental, but even in year one and for Foundation degrees it is essential. I will thus ensure all your coursework is focussed, adheres to the assignment grading spec and includes critical analysis and evaluation.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide specialised and comprehensive notes which will assist you in your learning. I can give coursework or assignment help (planning, writing, editing, suggesting improvements etc) and assistance with your exam preparation. If you live a long distance away you can e-mail your assignments/coursework to me for editing and improvements. I will then e-mail them back to you with the improvements. I am also able to help you via Skype if you live a long distance from me. So even if you do not live in Bournemouth I am still able to help you.

Personal Description:
I am a motivated, organised and friendly young woman. I love working with children and I am passionate about sport. I want to become a teacher and I am currently working as a classroom assistant at a high school. I am mainly in maths supporting foundation and higher curriculum at key stage 3 and 4 . I received an A at maths at GCSE and understand the curriculum fully. I studied Sport Science with Coaching at Northumbria University. I have had substantial experience in numerous schools and with a range of departments. I am very capable of working one on one with children and also with groups of children.

Teaching Experience:

I have had work placements at Haydon Bridge High School teaching P.E to ages 13-18 for a period of 6 weeks, then assisting various classes for 75 hours over 4 months. I undertook several roles; teacher, clasroom assistant, organiser of fixtures and one on one tutor. I also returned to Haydon Bridge High school as a volunteer, assisting in P.E lessons.
I am currently emplyed as a classroom assistant at Queen Elizabeth High school. My main role is to work with one or two children with Special Educational Needs within the classroom supporting their learning. I may also have to work with a whole class, supporting all the children. It is vital for my role that I understand and can teach the curriculum, as I may have to work outside the classroom with the child and will need to tutor them in that subject area. The majority of the students I am currently working with have made progress since I have been put with them and other students are asking to be placed with me or for me to put on revision sessions for them.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child is unique. They each have their own way of learning and have different abilities in a variety of areas. This can not always be addressed within a school environment, as it can be difficult to differentiate the topic which is being taught to a large number of pupils. I understand that each child will work at a different rate therefore my rate and style of teaching will alter to suit the student. I believe that tutoring is about guiding a child to find their own way towards an answer and not making them follow your way as they may not understand the process which you have followed. I can also comprehend the amount of work which students are having to complete weekly, thus I would not supply them with a large workload alongside their normal studies.

Personal Description:
I am an English and Spanish Postgraduate Student with a Master's degree in Spanish and Teaching Foreign Languages. I am a Spanish native speaker but I was raised bilingually between Spain and the UK. I really enjoy teaching Spanish and English, since they are both part of my background.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Spanish and English privately for 5 years. This private tuition consisted in one-to-one or small group classes. I also taught Spanish at West Virginia University (USA) for two academic years and English at a Language School in Spain for two years. In these contexts, classes were bigger, from 5 to 25 students per class. I currently teach Spanish Language and Literature at University of London.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to adapt my teaching method to the student's preferences and learning style, but I think it is very important to promote communication in the target language as much as possible during the lesson. This makes students more confident and also facilitates language acquisition greatly. It is also essential to make the lesson as entertaining and dynamic as possible, because if the student is enjoying the lesson, they will learn more easily and quickly.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified maths teacher, and a highly experienced tutor. And Ex cambridge graduate, after completing a PCSE in maths, I taught in schools in staffordshire and Oxfordshire before moving to exeter an becoming a full time maths tutor, which I have been for the best part of seventeen years, with great success. My specialism is making that extra difference to grades, changings D into B's and C into A's.

Teaching Experience:

I have PGCE (Cert Maths), from Keele university, and have taught in schools in staffordshire and oxford. My main specialism is though teaching in small classes and tailoring what I teach to what a small group actually needs, and one can be done at the one to one level.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on a threefold approach. Firstly maths tutoring is of course all about listening to the pupil and working out both exactly what they needs to learn, and how one should teach it. Secondly based on my my many years of experience I know what tends to slip in class room teaching and how that slip can effect learning elsewhere, allowing me to tackle problems any problems in maths at the root, and so making the entire process much easier. Finally, I place lot of emphasis on how one reads maths questions and tackles actual problems. As a maths teacher one all too frequently encounters pupils whose maths is fine, and it is their reading of question (which often seem that they are written in a language of their own), that is the issue. I am therefore very experience in showing how the maths one knows relates to the question one is actually asked. The importance of this cannot be over emphasised - the difference between an A and a B grade is a difference in ones ability to read the question and find its meaning - and then how one does it under pressure… I am also (in another life) a storyteller,performer and philosopher , and use a lot of storytelling,funny *memorable facts from the history of maths, as very much part on my teaching practice.

Personal Description:
Teaching is part of my life, which I really enjoy!

My teaching career started in 1985 in São Paulo city, and after some years I received a new challenge in a beautiful coastal location. Two schools invited me to teach and I accepted.

Teaching Experience:

Then I had opportunity to improve my career, teaching different subjects like ICT, Statistic, Accounts and Portuguese. Also I helped other teachers to develop ways to improve their classes using modern technology, bringing a new face to the lessons.

A further challenge arrived in my life in 2011 and made me move once again and now I am living in the UK, and I wish to continue my teaching to help you to learn Brazilian or European Portuguese.

No matter what your goals are, travel, business, educational proposal or simply to learn a language, we can work together to achieve them. I have my own material for all levels, ages and needs.

Tutoring Approach:

In a very dynamic class, we talk about music, art, nature, hints & tips that I believe help to build your confident. In a balanced mix of conversation, grammar, exercise, video and books, you will achieve your target in Portuguese Language.

Tuition can be Face2Face or online via Skype, Google Hangout

Personal Description:
My name is Amna, I am a biochemistry student from the university of Leicester I did my first year of biochemistry their and then started a teaching course which I am currently doing along with teaching assistant placement at a secondary school. I did my A-levels in biology, chemistry and religious studies and I did my GCSE's in biology, chemistry, physics, religious studies, Urdu and English. I am 21 years old and a have a friendly and forth coming approach towards my students.

Teaching Experience:

I have been assisting teachers in teaching various subjects but specifically science up till KS2 and KS3 stages. I also have experience of assisting students who are struggling with their science subjects as well as students with special needs. I have had experience of teaching Urdu up to a-level as it is my native language and I can read, write and speak to perfection.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is fairly straight forward, when teaching I pick one topic and explain it very thoroughly to the student during the teaching the student can ask me questions or ask me to explain something again, after that I give the student some exercises to do in order to test his understanding of the topic if they do well in the exercise I will give them homework to revise the topic for next lesson and I will give them a assessment on that if he doesn't do well on the initial exercise I point out his weaknesses and will teach him the topic again only when me and the student are both satisfied that they have understood the topic I will test their knowledge through practice tests, and at the end of each module I will again assess their understanding and knowledge through a mock exam.

My name is Daniel and I currently study Ancient History and Archaeology at Reading University, I am originally from Guernsey and studied at Elizabeth College, for my A-Levels I took Ancient History (A at A2) Classics (A at AS) Design and Technology (A at A2 with 98% in coursework) and Photography (B at A2). I also have some background in french speaking and teaching Sailing.

Teaching Experience:

During my time at Elizabeth College I was a cadet leader in charge of 50 or so cadets, this role involved teaching the recruits various aspects of the curriculum, from theoretical to applied learning.
I am also a sailing and Powerboat instructor, this was paid work over the summer, where I would take children, relatively new to the sport, and within a week have them sailing proficiently on their own.
During these activities I would be teaching young adolescent and the occasional 10-11 year old.

-As a one to one student you will always have the undivided attention of the teacher for the entire lesson.
-All lesson plans can be individually tailored to your needs.
-We can spend as little or as long on any given individual topic until it is properly understood. The choice is yours.
-The 1:1 - teacher to student ratio cannot be beaten.

With education a solid foundation of knowledge must be laid before additional levels can be built upon it; otherwise the structure in question will inevitably fail.

Tutoring Approach:

I would say I very much hands on, first I would read ahead in the curriculum, in order to ensure my understanding of the subject was clear, I would then form a powerpoint in order to provide a visual learning point, whilst I would orate the background to the student, It would follow a chronological order, and would and in-depth background knowledge that would help the student understand the subject matter better, and allow the student to access higher grades

I am easy-going, positive and creative, have a cheerful personality and outstanding communication skills which have always helped me to build excellent rapport with students.
I love what I do.
Teaching for me is not just a job, it's a vocation, a passion that help me be a better version of myself and as a result I am deeply respected and highly appreciated by my current and former students.

I have taught English as a foreign language for 17 years and have never worked anything else. I have taught students of various ages and backgrounds, mono and multilingual classes and all levels of General English and Cambridge exam levels (PET, FCE and IELTS).

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching approach is eclectic, practical and student centred. I design my lessons so that they suit every student's individual needs and I ensure that they are not only productive but fun as well. Regular feedback is provided and the student's progress is checked through various practical tasks, in real-life situations and tests. Social and cultural activities and visits to museums, galleries and other places of interest are available on request.

Personal Description:
I hold a BSc (Hons) Mathematics, 1st class from the University of Manchester as well as an MA Music, Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music.

I grew up in Watford, studying at Watford Grammar School for Boys. I achieved 4 A Levels grade A including Maths and Further Maths, 1 AS Level grade A, and 11 GCSEs, 9 grade A* and 2 grade A.

I am a mathematics tutor and freelance classical musician (viola), with my work featuring performance with top UK orchestras, chamber music and outreach work as well as a teaching portfolio working with children and adults.

In my spare time, I enjoy astronomy, cycling and playing the euphonium with the Army Reserve Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

Teaching Experience:

I have recently relocated to Liverpool and am looking to build up a tutoring profile here. In previous academic years I have had the following distribution of students:

2015-16: 7 A Level, 5 GCSE
2014-15: 3 A Level, 5 GCSE

All of my students have achieved over and above their expected grades.

In addition, I teach the violin and viola to children and adults, from beginner to diploma level. I should clarify that I don't teach academic music, rather am happy teaching instrumental music to the age groups listed. I am able to combine mathematics tuition and music teaching for individuals who would be interested.

Tutoring Approach:

For those studying A Level and GCSE Mathematics, it is very important to be able to identify areas which require work and bring these to the attention of a tutor; my approach to mathematics tutoring is a student lead approach. I also like to instigate discussions about general study and revision technique which can be transferred to other subjects as well. Given the appropriate contact time with me, students are always prepared for exams well in advance.

I offer an introductory session at no fee. This is for myself, the student and parent(s) to get to know each other, and also to discuss where the student would like help.

My music teaching approach is focused on general musicianship and encouraging the enjoyment of playing. I do work on grades with my students but prefer to allow them to develop to a point that I know they will be able to pass their exams easily. Many students who are taught with too much of a focus on grades give up and stop playing altogether, and this is the reason for my approach.
