Personal Description:
I am 56 years old, am a qualified teacher with 15 years experience. I am an easy-going reliable person who likes to make my students feel at ease at all times.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching seconday school students since qualifying in 1998. I have had two full-time posts, worked as a supply teacher as well as having private students. I have worked in Inner London, Outer London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire schools. I have also worked in France at a small private school during the '80's, predominantly teaching adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach French using the native tongue as much as possible. I use my own resources although I use the Internet for ideas whenever it's suitable.
For Maths I follow the syllabus laid down by whichever examining board the student is using and resources come from a wide variety of places usually from where I have recently been teaching. I gather information from colleagues who sometimes have great ideas. I like to be able to go through past papers with students marking work as we go through a course.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a French teacher living in Hitchin and am very interested in meeting you if you need help with your French or would simply like to improve your existing knowledge of the subject. Private tuition is my favourite area of teaching and I would love to hear from you soon!

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher of French and have been teaching French for 18 years to people of all ages and abilities. I taught at primary, secondary and third level. I have been working for the Department of Education as Assistant Examiner of French for a number of years and also as Oral French Examiner. Moreover, I spent time in France teaching English as a foreign language. I have always given private French lessons to students but also to people who just want to improve or practise their French.

Tutoring Approach:

Private tuition has always appealed to me. Firstly, so much learning can take place due to the one-to-one dynamic and this therefore is very satisfying for both teacher and pupil. Secondly, it is a wonderful means of building a rapport between teacher and pupil. In fact, I have built up a number of friendships over the years with some former tutees!

Personal Description:
LEARNING ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE
Experienced graduate native tutor teaches Italian one to one and groups.
30 students per week. Adult and children. Beginners, intermediate, Advance levels.
Specialized in Skype lessons.
Conversation classes in Stotfold (SG5 4) on Mondays at 8:30 pm.
Survival Italian courses for tourist purposes.
GCSE and A-level teaching. University tutoring.

My name is Tiziana, I am a native Italian speaker and I was born and grow up in Grosseto (south of Tuscany). I am married to a university lecturer, with whom I have 2 children. I`ve been living in England for 5 years and now I live in Stotfold (Hitchin).
I studied at the University of Sienna (Italy) where I obtained my Master Degree in Law and qualifications to teach Italian to foreigners.
​In Italy I worked as a solicitor/barrister at first and then for ten years as Chief Police Officer.
Over the last 10 years, I have developed a passion for teaching Italian to foreigners. I already ran Italian language classes while in my native country, and when I came to England, I started to give Italian lessons on a one to one basis then and I run Italian courses in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.
I give Italian lessons via Skype to some distant students and I really enjoy this way of teaching.
I am also running a fruitful Italian conversation class for intermediate every Monday evening in Stotfold (Hitchin).
I've got my own website where you find a lot of language resources, grammar exercises, illustrated vocabulary, videos to watch, a blog filled of Italian culture, history and traditions and a lot more.
If you would like to read my Curriculum Vitae and a list of references in United Kingdom, please feel free to ask.

THE PROPER ITALIAN - MY ITALIAN BACKGROUND​

In Italy we say "the pure Italian is the Tuscan Italian in a Roman mouth".
Italy is composed by a lot of regions and every region speaks a different Italian, with a different accent. North and South Italy speak a very strong dialect. Open or closed pronunciation of the vowels "O" and "E" and doubling consonants "R" and "T" are the most crucial issues.
Italian tutor's accent reflects on the students speaking. I can recognize previews teacher origin of my students only listening to them speaking. I spend a lot of time with my students adjusting their pronunciation.
I grew up in the south of Tuscany and I didn't have to make any effort to get rid of my accent just because I have never had one. Pay attention when you choose your Italian tutor abroad. If you want to learn a proper Italian go with one coming from Tuscany or Rome.

MY STUDENTS BUNCH

I have to deal with many different students every week. Most of my students are coming once a week. Some of them come twice.​ Almost all my students are adult learners.
Half of my students are beginners and they literally start with no Italian at all. The other half have an intermediate level and they want to improve their skills in speaking and grammar.
In my experience, after 1 year of lessons (coming once per week) a beginner advance to the intermediate level and is able to speak and understand most common Italian conversations. ​
My Italian lessons are tailored to students ability, skills and purpose.
I teach all levels of Italian and my teaching experience is quite varied and rich.
I have mature students registered for Master Degrees in Italy, businessmen interested in improving their business Italian, teenagers who are doing A-levels in Italian, children from families of Italian origin who don`t speak Italian at home and tourist who want to learn a Survival Italian to hold some common conversations during their holidays in Italy.

YOUR LESSON IS TAILORED ON YOU
Every Italian lesson is customized on student progress, purpose and needs. I offer a high level of flexibility in terms of timing as ​I am available to give out lessons every day from 8 am to 11 pm weekends included. If you can't have your lesson in the same day every week I can arrange your lessons time by time at your convenience.
Students receive all the stuff they need to study Italian (grammar, exercises, practice) in advance and there is a hard job behind that. If you study Italian with me you don't spend a penny to buy books, audio-videos or other stuff.

Teaching Experience:

I offer different kind of services:

- Italian "one to one" tuition for beginners, intermediate and advance levels
- Survival Italian courses for tourists
- Italian conversation class for intermediate level every Monday at 8:30 pm in Stotfold (hitchin)
- Italian lessons via Skype for distant students
- Italian courses for schools, companies, organizations, pr and press offices
- GCSE and A-level teaching
- University tutoring

I am successfully running an Italian conversation class for intermediate every Monday night 8:30 - 9:30 pm in stotfold (hitchin) for a very affordable price ( 5 per class).

I offer a first free meeting to all the students, before starting any lesson, in order to assess their level of proficiency as a speaker of italian and understand their purposes in attending an italian course.

Tutoring Approach:

ITALIAN TUITION ONE-TO-ONE

I teach Italian by developing written materials according to an individual learner`s needs.
I use materials of different types in order to make each lesson interesting and beneficial, including videos from Italian websites, audio tracks, dictations and games.
Each lesson is usually divided into two sections: the first one is dedicated to study some new grammar and the rest of the lesson is focused on speaking, listening and comprehension exercises to help the student`s proficiency improving day by day.
An important component of my lesson is the "free conversation", where the students tells me what they have done in the last few days. Very useful are also my "driven conversations", based on newspapers articles or other writings, on different topics.
This way my students have the opportunity to learn about Italian culture, politics, food, traditions, history etc.
I always give all my students homework to be done independently.

LESSONS PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS

I charge 18 per 1 hour lesson or 25 per 90 minutes lesson at my house.
I offer discounts for families and groups.
I prefer to be paid monthly in advance but if you struggle to pay monthly I can accept payment lesson by lesson.
If you can't attend a class, please advice 24 hours in advance and I will offer you to re-arrange your lesson for another day.
If you miss the lesson and you haven't canceled it in advance, you will be asked to pay for the missed lesson.
You can pay my lessons cash, via cheque, pay-pal or bank transfer.​ ​If you need a receipt for your payment, feel free to ask.
For lessons at your house I will ask you a petrol refund.

​CONVERSATION CLASS

An "Italian conversation class" is a valuable opportunity for Italian students to practice their spoken Italian within an informal, relaxing environment, in front of a cup of tea.
Each conversation class is organized with students who possess the same level of Italian, so that no student would feel embarrassed and the conversation can be useful to all.
The purpose of the conversation classes is to connect people who are studying or who would like to begin the study of Italian and want to practice and improve their skills acquired so far.
Each class is developed around a specific subject, easy to be addressed within a conversation: events, personal experiences, or topics, such as sports, cinema, history, hobbies, celebrations, holiday, etc..
We start from an Italian newspaper article or we comment texts about Italian history, art, traditions, culture, society and even food receipts. We watch Italian videos, we prepare together some Italian recipes and we play together some Italian table games which help everyone to practice Italian speaking. Sometimes we practice grammar trough some "grammar games" which turn the Conversation Class into a shared grammar lesson. I moderate the discussions and assures that every student takes part in the talking.
Conversation class takes place every Monday at 8:30 pm and it lasts for 1 hour.
The class is open to all. Most of the people coming to the class are my one-to-one students but some of them attend only the conversation class. You are free to attend the class whenever you want and you will be asked to pay 5,00 per class.

SURVIVAL ITALIAN COURSES FOR TOURISTS

Are you worried about your language skill during your planned holiday in Italy and you are thinking to learn the most common Italian phrases in order to express yourself and understand most important conversations? ​
​Unfortunately in Italy not so many people speak English and everything you will come across is written in Italian.
We have a different shopping and public service timing, different public transport rules, different emergency and hospital services and also different habits in hotels and restaurants, which can cause you some distress if you pump into a urgent situation and you are not confident with it.
​I offer some "SURVIVAL ITALIAN COURSES" for tourists.
They are specific courses, designed for touristic purpose. In a few weeks lessons you will be learning about dining out, shopping, renting a car, manage with trips and tickets without be fussed about the nightmare of the Italian grammar.
They are the only courses I set up completely in English, in order to speed up your Italian learning.
​These mini-courses are designed specifically for people who are planning a short trip to Italy and just need to learn some basic survival phrases in the minimum possible time.
2 different survival courses are available for you.
- 20 lessons survival course for 300
- 10 lessons survival course for 150
You can choose your timing lessons, having lesson once a week, twice a week or 3 times per week. Every lesson lasts 1 hour. I apply interesting discounts if you book one of the "Survival Italian Courses for tourist" together with your friend and special packet is available for you and your family!

ITALIAN LESSONS VIA SKYPE

Have you ever tried the enjoyable experience to have your lessons from home?​
​Maybe you would like to learn a survival Italian in order to hold some common conversation in your next planned holiday in Italy. Maybe you are able to understand some Italian but you don't feel confident in speaking and you would need to have some conversation classes with a native, experienced teacher. ​Maybe you work with Italian companies and you need to improve your business Italian.
​What ever is your purpose for learning Italian, you can have your lesson comfortably from home, saving you money for petrol and time driving.
​​Where ever you live, doesn't matter how far from me, you can have your lessons via Skype.
I have some distant students having lessons via Skype and they find this way of learning easy, cheap and comfortable, avoiding the stress of traveling and any petrol expenses.
You only need to have a computer, headphone and microphone and you are ready to start.
I offer a first free"Skype meeting" to the students, before starting lessons, in order to assess their level of proficiency as a speaker of Italian and understand their purposes in attending an Italian course.
I will prepare your lesson in advance (tailored on your purposes, needs and skills) and I will send you the lesson via email before the arranged lesson in order to allow you to print off all the stuff.
During the lesson you will follow my writing seeing me on your computer and listening to my voice. So, you will write grammar exercises, you will read texts and you will practice your speaking with conversation exercises exactly like in a normal face-to-face lesson. I often share my computer screen with you in order to watch some videos together and listen to some audio tracks.
In other words, Italian lessons via Skype are exactly the same lessons I have with students coming to my house.
My students really enjoy this way of learning and I am very pleased to teach Italian this way.

Personal Description:
I have 5 years experience working as a Spanish teacher in secondary schools in London teaching years 7 to 13, and my exam classes have a very good track record. I have worked with both Edexcel and AQA in this time, so I know what it takes to get the best grades, especially at GCSE. I am also very happy to work with younger children, helping them to feel more confident with mastering the basics in a language. If your child needs extra support or practice with any particular area, just let me know.

I have made several trips to South America, and have lived in Chile and Spain. I am also a fan of Spanish and Latin American films and literature, so if you would like to incorporate some more cultural aspects into lessons just let me know, as this can be very motivating.

Teaching Experience:

I am PGCE qualified, CRB checked, and have been working as a Spanish teacher for the last 5 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I get on well with children and young people, and would be happy to focus on any area with which they needed extra help. Sessions would be individually tailored and at the student's own pace. If there are any specific texts, exam boards or textbooks with which the pupil is working I would request some advance warning of this.

Personal Description:
I have a PhD in mathematical physics and started tutoring while at university.
I have been a full-time professional tutor for over seven years and I teach maths and all science subjects from year 8 up to GCSE and for Common Entrance and Maths, Further maths, Physics and Chemistry to A-level.
I am an exam marker for the OCR exam board and I mark controlled assessments at a school in Ipswich.

Teaching Experience:

I initially started tutoring at university while I was doing my PhD and found that I had the ability to help pupils understand the underlying concepts of maths and physics. Instead of just giving my tutees the answers to questions, I always tried to provide interesting examples of the principles behind the topics being studied in order to give a deeper understanding of the subject.
I worked in IT for many years and started tutoring again after helping my daughters with their GCSEs and A-levels.
I have been a full-time tutor for over seven years. I have taught pupils from a wide variety of schools - including state, independent and boarding schools.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to ensure that my students have a good understanding of the underlying principles of the subjects. This ensures they can deal with a great variety of exam questions and enables them to get the best result possible.
I am patient and helpful and believe I have a good understanding of young people and how they learn and study.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

I am a very determined and ambitious person and I believe that many things can be achieved with strong will and the right tactics. As you can see from my CV which follows, I successfully studied in Iceland, Norway and England. I studied and worked with people from all over the world and with the most different cultural backgrounds. I myself am very interested and respectful of cultural differences and I am an expert traveller: I travelled extensively through Europe, Africa, India and Japan. What's more I have a degree in acting (2.1) from a very well reputed English academy in Birmingham (Birmingham School of Acting). I can speak English fluently and I have got a very good grasp of the language (in drama school we studied pronunciation for 3 years) and a very rich and flexible vocabulary. I enjoy staying with people and I like challenges. I take my responsibilities very seriously and I aspire to create a healthy working environment where the prime goal is the students' benefit.

Teaching Experience:

- Since I`ve been in London I have taught Italian to an English couple who have travelled to Italy many times, are really fond of the culture but have never got down to learning the language. I`ve also taught a Japanese woman who lives in the City and has working relationships with Italy. References available on request.

Moreover, I have tutored a 17 year old student form East Dulwich to prepare for and successfully pass his A-Level Maths exams. Reference available on request.

- In 2008 I worked as a teaching assistant in a kindergarten in Reykjavk for 8 months. This kindergarten had a special program of integration between kids with special needs (especially hearing impaired ones) and kids with no special requirements, which showed to be very successful. Besides assisting the teachers in taking care of the children daily, I was responsible of having a short weekly session to introduce children to English as a foreign language through playing and singing, which turned out to be very appreciated and great fun.

February - September 2008 Reykjavk, Iceland.
Teaching Assistant at the kindergarten "Slborg".

- During my years at university I continuously gave private tutorials of Maths and Physics to students of all ages from primary school to university level.

September 2000 - Fall 2007 Bologna, Italy.
Tutor of Maths, Physics and English to students from elementary school, high school and university.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is, without any doubt, one of the most important jobs ever. This might sound a cliche but it is what I really think. With almost 30 years spent as a student to gain two university degrees, I have encountered teachers form all over the world and experienced the most different teaching methods. A teacher can make the difference in a persons life, in a good or in a bad way. A good teacher can be a source of inspiration and can make you love a subject that you would have never imagined you could like otherwise. When teaching the student's benefit is the prime goal, this means that the teacher has to be able to understand what the student needs to access a specific subject, understand it, retain the information and be able to reuse it proactively whenever it is required of him. Since, as a private tutor, I work one on one with a student, I aim at creating a healthy and effective relation where the student feels comfortable to express what he/she doesn't understand and he/she can develop a positive attitude towards learning the subject under examination. Every student is unique, therefore the method used for each student is different. I plan to have a first session where I can assess what it is required of me and whether I am able to constructively interact with the student and then build a teaching program from that. I will commit to plan every session at home and come prepared to teach what is needed and I will expect that the student commits to doing his/her best to do his/her reading and homework.

Personal Description:
I am a 27 year old female, with a degree in English Literature, Film and Theatre and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Professional Acting.

I have a strong theatrical background, not only in acting, but also directing and producing. I love to travel, favourite places being Sri-Lanka and Australia. I am a food enthusiast: I love trying new foods, as well as cooking for my friends and family.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored several students through their GCSEs in English Language and Literature, always ensuring that I am up to date with changes to the curriculum and marking strategies. I am used to finding different methods of teaching to suit each student's needs.

I have worked as an English teacher in a school in China. While there I worked systematically through a curriculum with my class of 35 students, as well as giving them individual help with areas of personal difficulty.This meant I had to tailor my approach in order to meet each student's needs, as the class was mixed ability. It was a challenge to make sure no student was either overwhelmed or bored, but it allowed me to develop my skills and each student managed to flourish at their own pace.

Whilst at University I tutored others in my year who needed help with the phrasing of academic essays- in particular I assisted students with dyslexia who knew what they wanted to say, but had difficulty clarifying their point in writing. This was a very fulfilling role for me, as I was able to assist people I care about fulfil their academic potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient, calm person. I like to find out what interests my students and, if possible, incorporate this into their learning so that they associate their studies with something they like, not something they dread. I would normally ask a student to complete a small task initially so that I can assess their working level, and then progress from there, working at a pace which challenges them without being overwhelming.

I truly believe that each student has the potential to excel in life through education - and I would love to play a part in helping them reach their maximum level.

Personal Description:
What makes my classes the best option to learn Russian?

- You will acquire Russian naturally in a fun and stress-free learning atmosphere.
- You will be learning with a native speaker.
- You will make progress every single lesson without exception! My lessons are result focussed and highly engaging.
- You will save time by learning from the most effective language acquisition techniques.
- You will have an online access to your individualised lessons materials via your personal Moodle account enabling you to learn anywhere anytime.
- You may choose to take classes according to your needs.
- No obligation initial consultation.

My classes are for

- Adults, Business and Travel
- Children of Russian heritage or working towards a qualification

My lessons for children are based around
- developing your child's speech, reading and writing,
- improving his comprehension
- building her Russian vocabulary to the "educated" standard,
- learning about Russian culture and history
- working on language intereferance and language code switching.
In my teaching children I use proven methods and stragegies developed in American and German schools specifically for biligual children, as well as materials created by a very talented Olga Soboleva.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching adults and children both at prep school and privately.

Tutoring Approach:

As Stephen Krashen puts it, "Simply being a native speaker of a language does not in of itself qualify one as a teacher of that language. Conscious and extensive knowledge of grammar does not make one a language teacher either. Rather, the defining characteristic of a good teacher is someone who can make input comprehensible to a non-native speaker, regardless of his or her level of competence in the target language."

Your primary goal as a student is to learn a language. In that regard my primary job as a tutor is to guarantee the effectiveness of your learning process in relation to your needs and expectations.

How do I achieve that? First and most importantly by combining the right set of tools in my teaching repertoire:

- TPRS - Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling - is at the core of my methodology.

Traditionally there has been a prejudiced view that only certain people can 'do' languages. That only smart students can become proficient and that only the really smart can move on to advanced study. TPRS has demonstrated that the vast majority of students can achieve high levels of success at all levels of foreign language study, and that acquiring a second language isn't nearly as difficult as we teachers sometimes make it. TPRS is making particular headway in language classrooms across the US and considerable research has been done and published on its efficacy.

TPRS works because it is brain-friendly and multi-sensory methodology, fitting the needs of various learning styles. Students develop a real "ear for the language," learning to listen and respond to what sounds right.

- Teaching grammar in meaningful context from day one
The focus is first and foremost on the message, with realistic expectations (level-appropriate) for grammatical accuracy. My philosophy is that of John DeMado: "Linguistic accuracy is a destination, not a point of departure." My way of teaching grammar is based on usefulness, frequency of use and level appropriateness.

- Tremendous amount of Comprehensible Input.

This approach supports the language acquisition theory by Stephen Krashen, who says: "We acquire language in only one way, when we understand messages, that is when we obtain comprehensible input."

- Reading as a major component of learning process.

In his book, The Power of Reading: Insights into the Research, 2nd edition, (p. 37) Stephen Krashen states, "Studies showing that reading enhances literacy development lead to what should be an uncontroversial conclusion: Reading is good for you. The research, however, supports a stronger conclusion: Reading is the only way we become good readers, develop good writing style, an adequate vocabulary, advanced grammatical competence, and the only way we become good spellers."

- Teaching Russian to heritage speakers as a language arts/social science.

What students say:

"As a language teacher myself, I was very particular about the kind of Russian lessons I wanted: communicative, engaging, learning through interaction. I didn't want to get bogged down in grammar but instead to focus on useful vocabulary and phrases I could actually use in Moscow during my regular visits. Julia's lessons have fitted this brief perfectly. Even in our first lesson, I was using Russian to interact in a very simple way, which gave me a huge confidence boost. Julia got to know me well in the initial lesson and then tailored all our classes to my interests and daily activities, making the lessons really relevant and interesting. I initially explained to Julia that I could only do 20 minutes homework a day while commuting into work. She therefore provided vocabulary flashcards I could use on the train to maximise this time. The whole service is bespoke! Julia is a patient, encouraging and engaging teacher "
I would highly recommend her lessons." Sarah, Surbiton

"I took about 5 months of private lessons with Julia, in preparation for a long motorcycle trip around Northern and Central Asia. Although I had been learning a bit of Russian a few years back, I had forgotten everything. In 5 months I went from not speaking any Russian to be able to speak simple sentences, ask questions, explain situations, and feel confident that I can find my way round in any situation that may arise through the trip. Julia impressed me by her enthusiasm, by how much research, effort and preparation she put in, to design the lessons to fit my specific needs, for this journey. I definitely would recommend her to my friends and anyone who wants to learn Russian fast and efficiently." Maria, New Malden

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic native speaker Italian teacher qualified at the Italian Cultural Institute of London with a TIAFL (Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language) certificate. Furthermore, I have attained a Master's degree (Distinction) in Italian Literature at University of Bologna gaining an excellent command of the Italian language and a deep insight into the culture.

Teaching Experience:

During the intensive teacher training course TIAFL 'Teaching Italian as a Foreign language' at the Italian Cultural Institute in London I have taught to students of different levels including complete beginners and intermediate, planning innovative lessons and creating activities with authentic material.
I am currently working with one-to-one tuitions with a more tailored approach adapted to the student's needs and expectations.

Tutoring Approach:

I love involving students into the 'Italian world': natural and artistic heritage, social customs and peculiarities.
In my professional experience as a teacher I have developed a communicative approach able to show short-term improvements in the students' speaking ability and competence.
My lessons are student-centred enabling the tutee to effectively practise the language in an active way.
The interest is stimulated through innovative and engaging activities such as games adapted to language learning as well as audio, video and visual material.
The grammar is instructed through an inductive approach to make the student able to understand the concept within a specific context, and pronunciation is facilitated with a focus on individual phonemes, stress and intonation.
This active and engaging approach is the perfect way to stimulate the students' interest and motivation in learning a new language.

Personal Description:
I have always had a very approachable manner as a teacher as I have always believed that this is the best way to relax a pupil and make their mind more pliable to different approaches. I fully understand that mathematics can be a challenge, and this I believe is where my very patient and empathetic demeanour can produce results quickly and restore a pupil's self-belief. I am thorough in my preparation, professional in my presentation of written materials, and prompt and comprehensive with marking. I will be reliable, wholly courteous, and totally focused on the pupil's development.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a qualified teacher since 2006. From 2005 to 2012 I taught at Swansea College (now, Gower College Swansea) on a range of programmes including BTEC courses, GCSE and A-level Mathematics. While at Swansea College I continued tutoring mathematics privately, building my knowledge of the demands of Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, and developing a range of strategies to effectively teach those specifications.

Tutoring Approach:

I strongly believe that mathematics is based on a number of core principles, and success in mathematics depends on a concrete understanding of these principles rather than rote learning of topics. My private tutoring sessions are always designed around the effective delivery of these principles. I am always flexible in my approach, and I understnd that a pupil's attention may be distracted by something that they remember they have covered in a formal lesson. However, my commitment to ensuring that the principles are understood will not change. My lessons last for 1 hour and 20 minutes, and incorporate a 5-minute introduction to the objectives for that session, 1 full hour of teaching and a 15-minute review at the end.

I am a very open person, who is always willing to help and will have the patience when students just can't get there heads around a topic.

Teaching Experience:

I taught a few children back at my school in Germany, just as a favour when they different quite understand something which I had already done in previous years.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very open, I do however pressure students to a degree to get them to believe in themselves and to not give up as if they can't bring up the willpower to understand something it will make their lives even harder when it comes to doing the actual work. However if students try their very best and don't give up, I don't see why one shouldn't spend as long as necessary to get a certain concept understood.

Personal Description:
I am an English teacher of thirteen years' experience who holds degrees from the universities of Sussex, London and Kent, as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Secondary Education. In addition to teaching, I am an active researcher and academic writer, with specialisms in modernist literature, 19th-century realism, and existentialist philosophy. I write regular online articles on George Orwell, the subject of my thesis, and am currently seeking publication of my first book, which explores existentialist motifs in his writing. As well as English, I offer tuition in essay writing, and all branches of philosophy. Although I conduct the majority of lessons from my home or over Skype, I do travel to tutees in the Horsham and Dorking areas.Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you wish to discess the options available.

Teaching Experience:

I have thirteen years' experience as an educator, having taught English in an outstanding secondary school since 2003. During that time, I have helped thousands of pupils spanning the full range of abilities, and have consistently achieved exceptional 'value-added' results for my classes. In addition to working with larger groups, I have also offered regular one-to-one tuition sessions, and I take pride in never having had a pupil achieve lower than a C for GCSE English or English Literature. Indeed, the vast majority of my students achieve As and A*s, irrespective of their level of attainment when they first arrive under my supervision. My teaching has been repeatedly graded as 'outstanding', and the bespoke resources I produce in order to support students are of a professional quality.

Tutoring Approach:

As a doctoral tutor, I offer a premium service, drawing upon my own extensive academic skills and experience to give help that is tailored to the student's specific needs. I make a point of adapting not only the content, but also my teaching method to fit the learning style and personality of the individual, avoiding a 'one-size-fits-all' approach. The tutorials I offer are friendly and supportive, with a real emphasis placed upon aspiration: I want my students to aim for - and achieve - the highest possible grades. I have many years' experience setting and marking English coursework, particularly for AQA, and draw upon this to quickly identify areas for improvement in a student's work. My tutorials are designed to not only convey information clearly and in an easily-digestible form, but to provide structured opportunities for the learner to incrementally improve their skills. In addition to the lesson, I provide free email support to parents of my tutees, drawing upon my experience as a teacher to answer any queries relating to schoolwork or examinations. I offer a 50 percent discount on the first lesson, and reduced rates for groups of two or more students. Please email me to book a slot, or for a friendly discussion of your requirements.
