Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified Maths Teacher and have been teaching maths privately and in comprehensive schools fo over 25 years. I am a maths teacher at an 11 - 16 comprehensive school where I teach KS3, KS4 maths classes.
Part of my responsibility is to direct teaching and learning within my department, and to do this I monitor the constant changes and developments to do with the teaching and assessment of maths. This keeps me aware of all the changes to the format and style of the exam papers (the specifications have changed and there has been a major shift in the style and difficulty of the questions making them more functional and requiring additional skills in answering them, a fact that some non-qualified, non-up-to-date teachers may not be aware of!)
I have successfully tutored students through GCSEs at both higher and foundation levels and within both modular and linear settings and have experience with all the major exam boards (AQA, OCR, and Edexcel)

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in comprehensive schools for over 25 years and at all key stages. I am currently a maths teacher and a private maths tutor. I have over 25 years experience teaching privately and have an excellent, proven track record having always made improvements to my students' grades, sometimes from 'D' to A*.

Tutoring Approach:

I visit the student at their home for the lesson, which is usually one hour per week (but this arrangement can be flexible). I will perform an analysis to tailor the individual needs of the student. Once the student has a good understanding of the concepts, I teach methods of answering exam style questions, then move on to past exam papers giving them the skills and confidence to do well in the exam.
Following each lesson I like to have an informal chat with the student and family to give feedback on progress made.
I can also offer short booster lessons in order to bring the student 'up to speed' or to prepare for exams that may require only one or two hours.

Personal Description:
I'm a native, qualified - South American - Spanish tutor. I've worked and lived in the UK and South America for several years and I have studied up to degree level in the UK. I'm completely bilingual, this allows me to explain language issues to my pupils from both the English and Spanish angles.

Teaching Experience:

I'm a qualified Adult Education Tutor.
I passed my City and Guilds course for the Teaching diploma in adult education in 1999 and have been teaching in the corporate sector, in the public sector and to private pupils since then.
Clients have included Volkswagen, Gmac, O2, Transence and Inspire Change. In the government sector I have taught for MK Council, Surrey County Council, The Foreign Office, and the Police.

Tutoring Approach:

I concentrate on speaking and listening with some reading in class. Writing tasks are set for homework. I always find out what it is that the pupil wants to concentrate on: it could be just listening with comprehension tasks or just grammar with gap fills. That way the courses may meet individual needs. I usually agree a course plan at the start so that the pupil knows what's coming next for each lesson and we can change it if necessary as we go along. I explain what we're going to do, we do some role plays, some listening tasks. We use material from Pasos A First Course in Spanish. For the listening there is box ticking or answers to comprehension questions. At the end of a 20 hour course the learner should be able to get by in a Spanish speaking country, as a visitor, in the topics covered.
I charge the basic rate per hour below plus a £1 surcharge per mile travelled.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified CELTA (Pass B) teacher living in Malmesbury with my partner and children. I offer private English Language classes - both one-on-one and small groups - from my home. My house is near the town centre and I own and run a holiday home next door where students can stay overnight or for weekends/full weeks during their language course if they wish.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Pre-Entry, Entry 1 and Entry 2 level classes as MTC in Swindon and I currently teach at Wiltshire College in Chippenham. My background is in business and my business knowledge has equipped me well to help businessmen and women to learn the functional language required to communicate across the world.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an informal and relaxed teacher, committed to meeting the specific needs of each of my students. I will carefully assess each student before deciding on a course that would be most suited to the individual. I can take lessons during the day (week days 9.30 to 2.30) or some evenings by arrangement.

Personal Description:
I graduated from UCL with a First in Classics in 2008, and complete my PGCE in Classics in 2014. I am now a teacher at an independent school in North-East London.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a full-time Classics teacher since 2014. I have also been tutoring privately since 2012, and have had a range of pupils aged from 11 through to University students. I have a detailed understanding of the curriculum for each school year and the GCSE, A Level and Pre-U set texts and language, for both Latin and Greek.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an enthusiasm for Classics which I have been told is infectious, and I am a firm believer that learning should be enjoyable. I have studied Latin since the age of 11, and Greek since 16, and have a very thorough knowledge of grammar and syntax in both languages. I am particularly skilled at Unseen Translation and Prose Composition.

I tailor my tuition to my pupil by informally assessing their language ability during our first session. I offer language tuition at any level and have experience of preparing students for University Entrance Exams. I am also well practiced in tutoring Greek to A Level students intending to study Classics at degree level.

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:
I am a second year Oxford University Maths undergraduate with versatile interests and a passion for teaching. In love with Mathematics and hoping to become a teacher one day, I relish every opportunity I get to share my knowledge with others.

I am interested in classical music (play the violin), baroque opera and theatre. I am also writing a blog and am currently the editor-in-chief of the Oxford University Maths Society Magazine, the "Invariant".

Teaching Experience:

Co-founder and co-owner of Quill Tuition tutoring company: conducted Maths and English classes for individuals and small groups; including a Maths course for high-school students heading to leading UK universities; experienced with teaching online using interactive online whiteboard and classroom facilities (2015).

Private English tutor for adults and teenagers (2014).

Taught a high-school Maths insight course to a class of 14-year olds (2013).

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that successful tutoring consists of two things: the right approach, tailored to individual needs of every student and constant repetition and revision. If my student does not understand something, I try different ways of explaining it to them for as long as it takes for them to grasp the difficult concept in question. This way I can quickly find out what learning style fits the given student and how to teach them most effectively.

Personal Description:
I'm a recent maths graduate from Cambridge, with a real passion for conveying concepts in unique ways. I first starting tutoring when I was in school, and quickly learnt how challenging, yet satisfying it could be, to break ideas down into their most simplest forms. I'm tutoring over the next few months for all school level maths (up to A-level maths and further maths, and even STEP maths) and look forward to working with you!

Teaching Experience:

I've tutored many students both GCSE and A-level Maths (Modules C1-4, FP1-3, M1-3 and S1-2) over the last few years, and really enjoy it! Most of these students went on to achieve A* grades, but I taylor each lesson to suit each individual student.

Tutoring Approach:

It's impossible to explain my approach to tutoring here as it varies hugely for each student - if for example the student is familiar with the topic but wants extra practice, I start with a few questions to ascertain his/her level, and then cement it with further teaching, trying to explain any unfamiliar concepts in several different ways. If a topic is new however, I will try to build it up from previously-seen ideas, to give a motivated approach to the subject and it's uses. My first lesson is always half price, so that you can see whether you like my tutoring style in 1 lesson before continuing.

  • 11+ (secondary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Whether you are a language beginner, advanced learner or want to brush up on your casual language skills, I am here to help you in French, German, Italian, Spanish or English as a Foreign Language (EFL), through one-to-one or online tuition.

If you are pursuing a teacher training course (e.g. PGCE), or are a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in French, German or Italian, I can help you prepare your lessons and ensure you have the language skills you need to teach with confidence.

DBS checked, I have over 4 years of varied language teaching, and Head of Department, experience and am now involved in further language study and tutoring.
My passion is sharing the enjoyment and satisfaction that language learning brings and helping students of all ages to reach their full potential, getting you to where you need to be. My hobbies include cooking, travelling around Europe, long walks, gardening and geocaching.

Teaching Experience:

Qualified Modern Languages Teacher & Head of Modern Languages.

Qualifications:
Aberystwyth University (2007-11) French, German, Italian: 2:1, including Distinction.
University of Gloucestershire (2011-12) PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in secondary French, German.
The TEFL Academy Norwich (2016) Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Distinction).

Tutoring Approach:

Language lessons built on years of teaching experience.

N.B. for adult learners: `Adult` level can range from Beginner right through to Advanced level, so just get in touch if you are not sure and I will be happy to advise on the price. The stated rate is if you are a beginner.

N.B. for all learners: Depending on your language goals, objectives and choices, some lessons may vary in difficulty because of their specific objectives, and therefore fall into different level categories (see below for pricing categories). I base the levels upon the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the international standard for describing language abilities. Overall, lessons will tend to fall within a single level category, but it is also common that the context focus is switched to different, more challenging, levels due to the progress made. If you are unsure which specific level will be applicable to you, or want to check in advance how pricing may vary with particular lessons, please do not hesitate to contact me for further information where I will be happy to advise.

Upon finding out what your languages goals are, I offer a personalised learning programme to suit your style, with lessons adapted to focus on specific areas. I ensure learning is not only active and engaging, but also relevant and progress-focused to help you understand the bigger picture and in-depth components of your language learning, and to stretch your abilities with proven results. As well as listening, reading, writing and grammar, I build in a lot of conversational practice to enable you to move from strength to strength with confidence.

To ensure continuous progress, consistency is essential and I recommend 2 hours of tuition per week, with 2 hours of homework. I find that tutoring over a longer period is a much more successful way to engage learners and keep, rather than exhaust, their attention.

Competitive Lesson Pricing:
50% off first session (consultation and learning introduction.

My hourly rates include full personalisation of resources to your needs; including planning time, printing and making of resources. Please note that I am able travel to you for your lessons; my travel costs from my location are as follows: 0-5 miles = £0.00; 6-9 miles = £3.00; 10-15 miles = £5.00; 16-20 miles = £7.00; 21-25 miles = £9.00.

Please contact me to find out about how you can benefit from a range of discounts available.

How to start:
I arrange to meet learners in a location that suits us both. Unless you are an adult learner, I will need to meet both you and your parent. The initial meeting is half price and I start by giving you further information and assessing your current language level.

For companies who require their staff to learn German / French / Italian / English, I can provide reports on progress as required. Please contact me for more information.

I look forward to helping you learn with confidence.

Personal Description:
My native language is Spanish Latin-American but lived in Spain for 11 years, so I can speak both kinds fluently and good grammatical

Teaching Experience:

This is my fist time as a tutor but I have worked like Au-pair in Germany and Spain, with child and I was like a teacher because we share the languages in differents activities, plays, singing, with Homeworks etc.
Other experiences in leisure time in summer, in the holidays with friends and his families, or the babysitter.
I like to do activities for teaching new vocabulary, go to the park

Tutoring Approach:

Consider important to learn and practice a language in a form very practical and simple. Personally I try to teach in this way because we can remember better the grammatic when we are in a dairy situation and enjoy together.
