I am an excellent teacher and all my students grades get up to A* when they take my advise.

I am doing a PGCE in Teaching French in secondary schools and will complete in June 2017. I tailor my lessons via different types of presentations to suit the individual learner from my laptop and I am familiar with all exam boards including AQA, OCR, WJEC, Edexcel and Eduqas (new GCSE exam-board) etc. I also use a range of textbooks depending on the students requirements. I can also provide references before tutoring commences.

My students include those from Merchents Taylors, Brunel University, St John Fisher Primary School Oxford University and Eaton College to name but a few. I can certainly move you at least two grades up to the A* if that is what your student requires.

Personal Description:
I am an independent tutor with a strong scientific background and have lived in England since Aug 1965. Most of my school and college education took place in Dudley (West Midlands) and I studied Biochemistry, at Leeds University (1975-8). I am married and have lived in Cheshire since Dec 1978. We have a son and a daughter; both graduated from Universities in Manchester. Following my voluntary redundancy from AstraZeneca, (Jun 2008), I am now a self-employed Tutor / Consultant. In addition, I am able to speak additional languages (Punjabi; studied up to GCE A-level and Hindi) and prepared to travel up to 5 miles. I have been tutoring Yr 7 - 13 students, in Maths and all Science subjects, since Oct 2008. In addition, I have prepared students from Yr 6, for the 11+ exams; frequently used by private schools, as entrance exams. Testimonials / References (from Students and Parents) are available, on request.

Teaching Experience:

During my long service in the Pharma industry (~30 years), I have run many short courses and workshops. During 2005/6, I mentored a pupil (Year 10/11) at St. Peter's High School, Longsight, organised by the University of Manchester. In the past, I have also been responsible for organising and running the weekly classes at the Sikh Temple (Gurdwara), for teaching youngsters the Sikh way of life & Punjabi culture, in helping to improve their knowledge and integration into the Western Society over a period of ten years.

Tutoring Approach:

I can provide tuition to individual students (or small groups) in the form of friendly, relaxed lessons. Teaching sessions are always customised to meet the specific requirement of the students. Generally, I enjoy teaching and considered to have a caring approach. I use a combination of computer and 'white board' based approach, for creating informal interactive / discussion type sessions, with some form of regular tests and re-cap sessions. Closer to the exams, the lessons are much more focused on using past papers covering a wide range of questions, to enable the students increase their confidence in preparation for the examinations.

Personal Description:
I am 50 years old and live in Northern Ireland after over a decade living and teaching English in Italy.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English in Italy and Italian in Northern Ireland. During my time in Italy, I taught English privately on a daily basis, accumulating well over 1,000 teaching hours. I also taught for an academic year at a local high school. My experience includes all ages from primary school to retirees, and from professionals to university undergraduates. Teaching English to migrant workers brought me into contact with many different people from Eastern European countries.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring my lessons to the individual or group that I am teaching. Everyone starts with different levels and abilities. I see it as my job to home in on areas that need attention and make them my focus using conversation and exercises. I like to make sure my students understand the grammar well and also concentrate on pronunciation.

Personal Description:
I am a Spanish native speaker who has been living and teaching languages (Spanish,German in London for the past fourteen years. I am outgoing, dynamic and passionate about teaching languages.I love seeing how my pupils progress and are able to communicate in another language lesson after lesson. I love travelling and meeting people from all over the world. In the past I lived in Germany for four years where I taught Spanish to students from all backgrounds, ages and levels.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Spanish speaker and experienced language teacher with recognised QTS. I have been devoted to language teaching in secondary schools in London for the last eleven years. During this time I have taught all levels (KS3/KS4/KS5) in the three languages (Spanish and German ) preparing pupils for GCSE and AS/A level examinations.
Previously I have also worked in private language schools in Spain and in the in public further education sector in Germany, teaching Spanish and German to pupils of all ages and backgrounds. For the last three years I have been devoted to giving private tuition in the twho languages as well as intensive courses (4 to 8 hours a day) to adults (linguistic immersion).

Tutoring Approach:

As a vocational teacher I take a lot of pride in my work and strive to assure all pupils achieve their full potential. I am therefore used to identifying and meeting the needs of students of differing ability,levels, ages and backgrounds and planning accordingly adapting my methods to the student's needs.
I use the communicative approach trying to use the target language as much as possible as I strongly believe languages are tools of communication and therefore they must be spoken.
All in all I try to make my lessons fun, entertaining and applicable to your immediate language needs. For this reason I often use games, role plays,songs, Internet, cards, etc.. so there is no chance to get bored so,I hope to hear from you! Hasta pronto! Bis bald!

Personal Description:
I am Yifen. I have gained excellent teaching experience of Chinese at all levels and in Maths (From KS1 up to GCSE). I received positive feedback from my previous students and gained credits to my patience, explicit express and responsibility. I have got a degree of PhD at the School of Education at the University of Manchester in 2015. I have been appointed as a governor in a primary school in York.
Regarding my personality, I am a very easygoing person, kindly and also with a high sense of responsibility. I have been living in the UK since 2010. I have stayed in places covered students of all creeds and ethnic backgrounds. I have gained significant experience of working in the international culture. I appreciate and respect individual differences.

I like travelling and experiencing different things. I have visited a few places, such as European countries (England, Scotland, Welsh, Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Iceland and Greenland), Africa (Cameroon), South Korea, Hongkong and Marco. I love sports, especially, swimming, yoga, cycling, hiking and horse riding.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mandarin (online and face -to-face) to non-native English speakers with a wide range of ages at all levels both in China and in the UK for about 10 years. This deeply developed my valuable knowledge of quality teaching and meeting the student's individual needs. I have gained valuable teaching experience from helping in the primary school including the Nursery in York. I have been supporting the adult with a learning difficulty (e.g. dyslexia) in York Learning since January 2015.

I am a free-lance mandarin teacher and have been working with some language organisations, such as Cactus Language Training since 2012. I am also an interpreter/translator. With more than 10 years of both written and spoken translation experience and a first degree in the English language, I have obtained valuable oral experience as a translator in a range of sections from business (e.g.2010 EXPO Shanghai) to Education (translating the articles and interpreting at the international conferences).

Achievement:
My students enjoyed the lessons and have successfully achieved their goals. For instance, a girl achieved A* in GCSE Chinese Mandarin with my help in 2015 and two others recently passed HSK2 successfully.

Tutoring Approach:

I take all efforts to prepare lessons to meet the students' individual needs. I try my best to create a comfortable learning environment, which I think a good atmosphere is very important to learn a language and to encourage learners to open their mouth and speak. Lessons will be prepared. There will be some prepared funny stories or other materials during the lessons. So you can learn mandarin and have fun here!
My understanding is a good teacher is to be responsible for the students and to meet students' needs. My working experiences have ascertained my belief that it is essential to teach the students in front of you rather than the book. I endeavour to be the best listener and observe and identify the problems occurring during the lessons. It helps me to work out the solution and develop your potential at maximum.

If you feel a bit struggling with or tired of learning Mandarin on your own, I would encourage you to come to me and work together to achieve your goal efficiently.

There are some textbooks I have been using for the learners, such as:
Confidence Chinese Vol. Getting Started
Confidence Chinese Vol2. Living in China
Chinese Made Easy Book1, 2 and 3.
Standard Course HSK
Edexcel Chinese for AS
Edexcel Chinese for A2
Chinese Made Easy for Kids.

Personal Description:
I am enthusiastic about helping other people with academic subjects, and enjoy teaching and explaining various topics in science and maths. I have a personal love for these subjects and I am always interested to learn more.

Teaching Experience:

I have been invited by Mosslands School to join their mentoring programme aimed at year 11 students to help them with maths and achieve the highest grade they can.

Tutoring Approach:

When I am tutoring I aim to find what the pupil is struggling with or needs more practice and help with those areas, filling in the basics if this is what is required. I do this by asking the pupil questions or by going through questions in an exam paper or revision guide.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced private English tutor currently working in the Leiston, Saxmundham and Aldeburgh area of Suffolk, and I am able to tutor students from foundation to post GCSE.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked in both mainstream and private schools tutoring one-to-one, small groups and full classes. I have successfully worked with students of all abilities in both English and post 16 vocational subjects. I also have substantial experience in SEN both in small groups and one-to-one. I also have considerable experience of dyslexia and have studied this at postgraduate level. In addition I am able to provide additional services such as visual stress screening.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer tuition on a flexible basis and provide a free consultation to assess the needs and requirements of the student. I will provide a scheme of work and I like to set regular opportunities for parents to discuss their child's progress. In addition to my tutoring I also offer advice on appropriate materials that can be used independently.

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired teacher with over 30 years combined experience in further education, independent and maintained secondary schools. I am now based in a beautiful part of Norfolk, where I paint, give private tuition and run an art club.
My own work is based on observations of mans' intervention in the landscape. I work in oils, water colour, digital photography and print.
My interests in art and design are many and varied, and include, in no particular order, sculpture/ceramics (Moore, Gormley, Perry), photography (Cartier-Bresson and LaChapelle), graphic design (Brody, Bauhaus), and painting (Freud, Klimt, Giotto, Picasso).

Teaching Experience:

My first foray into teaching was in further education as a visiting lecturer in graphic design and illustration. Subsequently, I trained as a secondary school teacher and quickly became head of my first department in a boys grammar school. From there I moved into the independent sector, continuing to work successfully as head of department and head of faculty.
I have extensive experience as a senior regional moderator for GCSE examinations in art and design with a leading examinations board, being responsible for supervising the work of a team of visiting moderators in the south east of England, and for resolving disputes with schools. I do voluntary work for the National Trust, giving occasional talks to schools on symbolism in Tudor portraits.

Tutoring Approach:

Having started my career as a graphic designer I had, by necessity, to broaden my experience and skills into other two and three-dimensional media in order to become a successful teacher. My departments had outstanding results at GCSE and A-level, and many of my students went on to study at many of the principal art institutions, including Central St Martins, Chelsea, Glasgow, Edinburgh.
Teaching is about finding the unique personality of the individual and finding ways to encourage its expression. Allied to developing the imaginative and creative abilities is the need to create opportunities to build on existing technical skills and introduce new ones. The combination should be fun.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic Italian teacher and a language professional seeking a position in a challenging school environment. I recently graduated in Italian Studies and I have a true passion for the Italian language and literature. My studies and my travels all around Italy gave me the chance to widen my knowledge about all aspects of the Italian culture from the linguistic to the historical point of view. My professional ambition is to contribute to the diffusion and promotion of the Italian culture: teaching my native language is the way that helps me better reach this goal. I have had different kinds of teaching experiences over years from one-to-one tuition to children and mature students in Italy, to Italian lessons to adults in England. I have wide experiences in lesson planning and schemes of work, preparing teaching materials and activities, taking care of students needs and designing new methods to keep their studies always interesting and interactive. I plan my lessons using the communicative methods in a creative way, using books, handouts, audio and video materials, games, newspaper articles and even literary texts.
My first lesson is free. The pubblic price are in my house if I have to come in your house the price is 22 pounds/hour.

Teaching Experience:

2004 - 2011 Italian teacher in Libreria dei Ragazzi was my own book shop (L2 - Liv. A, B and C)
2006 - 2011 Voluntary italian teacher for teenges for ASF of siracusa
2012 Italian Teacher L2 in Ass. Dante Alighieri of Siracusa
2013 freelance tutor in Bristol for 14 students
2013/2017 freelance tutor in Bristol for 6 students and I'm teaching in private school "ISLE"
2017 Filton and Stroud College
Every March I organize a trip in Rome for 4 days ONLY for my Italian students

Tutoring Approach:

I am an Italian national who has been living in Bristol since September 2012 and having had a long time experience as an Italian teacher for students who have participated in the AFS Intercultural Program, it has not been difficult to insert myself here as a private Italian teacher.
I have a deep understanding of the GCSE program since I am tutoring three English secondary school students who are having difficulties with the Italian language. They lack interest and enthusiasm thus each lesson becomes more difficult but a challenge for me. I am looking for lessons that give them the enthusiasm they are missing and I must say that I am succeeding; sometime I see that the textbook is very dry and for this reason, my personal teaching materials often replaces the book.
My method is based a lot on grammar induction, stimulating conversations with the student, based on body movements for understand the action of the various stages of the exploration of the basic construction of the verb tense. A few years ago I enrolled in a workshop offered at the university about the use and choice of scene Italian films for understand better the Italian style-life and that has been quite useful to my teaching of Italian culture.
In Italy I have had own bookshop where I held my Italian lesson, therefore I know very well many documentaries and lectures mostly (or particularly) on Ancient Rome. Furthermore, I have been a guide in the city of Rome and I'm perfectly capable of organizing a cultural trips.
I look forward to being given an opportunity to work with your school: it is the type of environment I thrive in and to transmit my passion and love for my country and for my mother tongue is my main goal. This position will allow me to utilize my many skills and knowledge to support the language teacher's teaching and improve together the student's knowledge.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet and discuss my qualifications as well as to answer any questions you may have.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced teacher of both classics and modern languages, and have taught in a variety of secondary schools. I have stopped classroom teaching now because of the demands of a young family but I am keen to carry on teaching in a different capacity. I am passionate about languages, words and communication and love to share this with others. I have lived abroad for prolonged periods in France and Italy, and travel to see friends there whenever possible.

Teaching Experience:

Since completing my PGCE in 1992 I have taught Latin, Greek, French and Italian, from beginners to A level and Oxbridge, in secondary schools, both private and state. More recently I have been giving private lessons to both adults and teenagers.
***PLEASE NOTE THAT I TEACH ANCIENT GREEK, NOT MODERN! The UK tutors website does not give Ancient Greek as an option in the drop down list. I am not able to teach modern Greek.

Tutoring Approach:

Successful language teaching should combine a fun approach using oral practice including song lyrics and games with a more structured approach to grammar; this gives the student confidence that they really understand the language used. The advantage of private lessons is that I can focus on what the individual learner wants, which might be lots of oral practice to become more proficient at speaking, or to pass a specific exam. I do like to set homework from week to week as this is an important part of progress; but it is not compulsory!

Personal Description:
I'm 27 years old, a graduate of the University of London (MA) and full-time tutor with around four years' experience.

I received a distinction in Latin as part of my MA Classics degree, and continue to enjoy studying and teaching both Latin and ancient Greek.

Teaching Experience:

Extensive experience in teaching prep-school, GCSE, A-level and degree-level Latin to ages ranging between 7 to 40+ yrs.

Select achievements of 2016:

Pupil i: A pupil of mine for c three years, he achieved a B in the Westminster School Latin Challenge 13+ examination (A-Level standard) and has earned himself a place at the school.

Pupil ii.: Came to me with almost no knowledge of Latin, having found it tedious during the year. Within 12 weeks she took the exam and recieved a B at Level 1 Latin.

Pupil iii.: A long-standing pupil, she received as average a First for the essays I provided tuition on (Year 1 of her BA Classical Studies).

Select achievements of 2015:

Pupil i. (Prep) Bright though receiving consistently low marks in his Latin and Greek mock papers, he achieved an A in the end-of-year examinations in both subjects after c six months tuition, and recieved a place at a top London school.

Pupil ii. (GCSE) Suffering from dyslexia and receiving low marks on her language papers, she eventually achieved an A after c six months of tuition. Now studying at a top London girls' school.

Tutoring Approach:

I use the first lesson to assess the extent of the pupil's grammatical knoweldge by asking for the recitation of tables and perhaps a translation of a small piece of prose or verse matched in difficulty to the pupil's level.

After this assessment, the following lessons are based around the needs of the pupil, with practice questions and passages forming the basis of our learning.

Imperative to my lessons are a sense of humour and frequent chats - this provides relief, which in turn stimulates concentration and allows for a rapport to to be built with the pupil.

Some previous references:

"He is patience, sympathetic, and good in tailoring his teaching method to suit the need and ability level of his student. He is currently helping my son to prepare for the 13 plus common entrance scholarship exams for Latin and English, of whom is aiming for the Westminster School in 2016, year 9 entry.

Anthony has a good sense of humour and a very relaxed manner, that makes my kid feeling easy and comfortable to work on the subjects. A wonderful kind tutor who encourage and motivate my child to achieve the best. My son is the top of his year in Latin since Year 6, 100 per cent creditability to Anthony.

I would have no hesitations to recommending Anthony."

"An extremely engaging and enthusiastic character; his ardour delicately forces the student to love the discipline for themselves, and he has greatly increased my personal interest in the subjects of Latin and Classics. Not much I can think to fault by ways of teaching, would highly recommend."

"Anthony helped my son over the holidays with some grammar he was finding difficult. He fitted us in at short notice and went out of his way to be helpful - running off sheets and practice questions in the target areas. Would thoroughly recommend Anthony, he's patient and gets his message across clearly and effectively."

"Has wonderful personality that makes it easier to listen to him and at the same time enjoy the lessons. He helped me a lot with my essays when it came to the structure which is essential in the Grade A criteria. Highly recommendable."

Please note that for pupils outside a three mile radius of my house and who require my travelling to them, there is an additional charge for travelling expenses/time taken in addition to my standard hourly rate. This is to be negotiated with the client before details are exchanged.

Personal Description:
SAXOPHONE-I am an experienced saxophonist. Currently I play both alto and baritone saxophone. I have taught young pupils at my old school before for free, but now that i have gained enough experience, not just as a teacher but at a very high level in bands too, I am starting to tutor. I teach many different styles, have it be jazz, pop or classical. I offer tuition for students of all ages. Whether you are young and just starting out or older and wish to try something new/different for fun and want some guidance in the right direction, I am here to help. I teach for those at a amateur and beginner level. Music is a great passion of mine and I really enjoy teaching others something so great.

MATHS- I am a higher level maths student and i have an A grade at GCSE level maths. During my free periods i spend time helping lower school student who are struggling with their maths for free because i really enjoy teaching. I teach everything from key stage 1,2 and 3 maths to foundation GCSE students. Maths has always been a great ability of mine and I mainly teach it because I have a love for it and in my experience those who i have taught have found me very helpful.

Teaching Experience:

SAXOPHONE- I have taught young pupils at my old school before for free to gain some experience in teaching. I also play at a high level in the Hillingdon Music Service concert band and Sax Group, as well as in multiple Jazz and Big Bands.I have been on tour to France with the Music Service as well and have played for weddings too. I now have a good level of experience in both playing and teaching.

MATHS- I have been teaching GCSE and lower level maths for a few years now. I was part of a team who a few years ago went to the UK maths challenge representing my region of London. I enjoy teaching maths and in my experience those who i have taught have found me very useful.

Tutoring Approach:

I find that bringing out the passion in the student is what counts, so for music the genre they enjoy most and helping them fall in love with music that way. With maths i believe having a strategic plan of getting a topic or part of maths that the student is struggling with and keeping at it and doing questions and going through the solutions with them until they understand. I understand that many people struggle with maths or may not like it but i find that someone younger (such as myself) teaching them makes it a lot easier on them. Another good way i find with maths is going through questions and helping them understand how to get to the answer rather than just giving the answer and moving on with a simple tick or cross.

Personal Description:
I enjoy teaching and have tutored at various universities across Europe. My day job is at the Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, where our team of clinicians, physicists, mathematicians, biologists and bio-chemists together develop strategies to fight cancer. I particularly enjoyed interacting with people at science festivals explaining them the potential benefits of medical imaging. I have presented scientific work at various international conferences and worked in over 5 clinical trials. In the past, I have also enjoyed working at the interface of business, science & technology while starting-up a boutique clinical research organisation.

Teaching Experience:

10/2011-04/2013: Co/supervised various student projects, Kings College London, UK

04/2008-04/2010: Senior Tutor and Invigilator, UCD, Ireland

09/2007-01/2008: Teaching Assistant, University of Strathclyde, UK
EEE department: Probability and stochastic process

Tutoring Approach:

The classes are individually tailored. The students tell me in advance which topic they want to learn. I prepare a few questions & solutions for the chosen topic to tutor during our joint session and encourage students to bring specific exercises to the table related to the chosen topic. At the end of the session, I try to point out the key points learned during our session.
Note: If you can form a group of 2-3 students (max), students share the cost of my hourly class. I offer 50% off on the first lesson.

Personal Description:
A first class Medical Sciences graduate and qualified teacher, I have over 5 years` experience in teaching/tuition.

Well-versed in most major exam boards, I am able to work successfully with students across all levels of attainment in order to further their understanding of core scientific principles and enhance their exam technique. My position as an assessment specialist with two of the major exam boards has enhanced further my understanding of how credit is awarded in exams - enabling me to not only improve students' subject knowledge, but to improve their approach to exam questions as well.

I take a positive and friendly approach to tuition, and am happy to be flexible in using the methods that best suit the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a private tutor since attending university in Exeter, and have helped students to improve on their grade by up to 3 grade boundaries over time.

I taught professionally for two and a half years, training through the prestigious Teach First programme. My progress was judged as outstanding. I was consistently judged good/outstanding, both internally and by Ofsted, and I was a lead teacher in my last role.

Tutoring Approach:

Largely, this will depend on what the student is hoping to achieve. I appreciate that, most often, a student's aim is to achieve a certain grade in an exam. In these cases, I will spend a lot of time working with the student to familiarise them not only with the material for the exam, but with the format of the exam paper, exploring how to approach different types of question and working directly with mark schemes to best understand how credit is awarded.

I am, however, passionate about my subject, and aim to uncover some enthusiasm for the sciences with all my students, through engaging sessions in which we can explore topics in perhaps more detail than is often possible within schools.
