Personal Description:
My main subject area is Design and Technology which I am currently teaching in an Independent school. I am always available to help and monitor my students' progress, provide 1 to 1 support to students as and when needed so as to promote learning and progression. I always work in close collaboration with parents so as to better support my students and raise the level of achievement. I am a native bilingual with French and English.

Personal Description:
I have been a journalist for 25 years and have a love of the English language. I have also written several books. I decided to start teaching English as a Foreign Language last year because I love English grammar and wanted a new challenge. Now I have the advantage of being a writer of English as well as a teacher which enables me to help people with both speaking and writing.

Teaching Experience:

I have qualified on the Trinity College, London, TESOL course at Universal Language Training in Woking. During the course we gave over six hours of teaching and subsequently I have been teaching on a one to one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to get the student to do most of the work, speaking and writing English, and thinking for themselves rather than all the prompting coming from me. I tailor the work to their needs, so if it is a business client we look a the situations they encounter in their work and using role play we practise English in the workplace.

Personal Description:
As a school student, I was a confirmed hater of Science! I am still haunted by the drafty labs and memories of sitting in silence on wobbly stools taking notes from ancient text books and carrying out odd practicals with the ubiquitous Potato tuber. It wasn't until I started studying Science as an adult learner in an FE college, where I was taught by inspiring and enthusiastic lecturers, who illustrated important concepts with analogies, diagrams and genuinely interesting practicals, that I began to realise that science was relevant to me and was "my thing".

This experience has stayed with me and has given me a passion for making science exciting and largely the reason that I chose a career in personal tutoring.

I am a professional full-time private tutor. I have recently graduated with an MSc in Science (Medicinal Chemistry and science education studies). I have also graduated with a First class honours degree in Life Sciences (Open) and I have completed a Post-graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education, specialising in Science Education.

Teaching Experience:

I specialised in A level and GCSE tuition and I have extensive experience working with a wide range of students, from those who are struggling and need help understanding the key concepts to those who do well in science but need support to develop the exam technique that will get them the top grades.

I have tutored students working towards exams with all the major exam boards, including AQA (AS, A2 Biology and Chemistry, GCSE core science, GCSE Additional Science, GCSE Biology and Chemistry), OCR (AS, A2 Biology and Chemistry, Salter's Chemistry, 21st Century Science GCSE), WJEC (A level Biology), EDEXCEL (AS and A2 Biology and Chemistry, GCSE, IGCSE)


I also have much experience working with students entering for exams as external candidates and I can provide assistance in making arrangements for this.

In my professional life prior to tuition, I was employed as a company trainer in the catering industry, working with newly employed staff on an individual basis to help them develop the skills and knowledge relevant to their new positions and training existing staff to take on more senior roles. This gave me extensive experience of one-to-one tuition and creating individual training strategies.

Tutoring Approach:

When I begin tutoring a new student, I spend some time getting to know the individual and we begin by discussing their current feelings about Science and what they would like to get out of the tutorial sessions. I also carry out an assessment of the individual's learning style (sounds scary, but it's not, it's just a short quiz). By discovering how the individual learns best, I can structure the tutorials so that they are composed of activities that will be both effective and enjoyable. In all cases, I endeavor to make Science enjoyable and relevant to the individual student as possible and tailor the explanations to their particular interests.

As well as providing subject-specific tuition, I place particular emphasis on the development of study and exam skills. Where relevant, this includes teaching essay writing skills, how to revise, how to approach exams and specific scientific skills, such as data analysis and evaluation, which are often assessed in course work. I also offer tutorial sessions which focus just on study skills, for those who are comfortable with their subject knowledge but need extra support in these areas.

As well as traditional face to face sessions, I also offer fully online lessons using skype and an interactive whiteboard which allows me to interact with students in the same way as in a face-to-face lesson. If you are interested in online tuition but are not sure how it would work please contact me to discuss.

Personal Description:
I was born in mainland China where we speak standard Mandarin, after graduated from university I moved to Shenzhen, the first city applied Open Policy in China. During 6 years living and working there, I learnt very fluent Cantonese.

At the end of 1999, I came to UK in pursuing further education. I achieved my MBA degree and Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language in UK. During the break between these two studies, I also gained Interpreting certificate which enables me to do the interpreting jobs between English and Chinese language.

Maybe I have a little bit gift in learning language myself? My English pronunciation is rather good so that some of my English friends even said it can hardly tell I am not English from talking with me through the phone.

Hopefully I've reassured you that there is no barrier in me communicating with your child if you are worried that, as a Mandarin native speaker, I might have strange accent in English speaking.

I firmly believe that, language learning, is not just about to learn the language itself, but also the culture. The better perception of culture will certainly enhance the language learning. Therefore, I will integrate rich Chinese culture into my teaching, of course in various passionate ways to make the class full of the fun!

Teaching Experience:

I have being teaching Mandarin for many years, such rich experience has directed me into setting up the Mandarin teaching business in Croydon. As a specialist in teaching Mandarin, I never limited my role as a business founder only, but with more contribution as a chief tutor.

After School Clubs (Mandarin) in local schools;
Taught adults students for SOAS London University in 2010;
5 years private tuition in Mandarin;
3 years interpreting and translation experience.

Tutoring Approach:

For the learners whose mother language is totally different to Mandarin, particularly for those at very young ages, a fun, exciting and interesting learning environment is crucial to avoid boredom. I will tailor lessons to help individuals to overcome their difficulties; at the very beginning, prior to learning speed, I will make effort to ensure students to grasp the basic of Chinese, in which way, students will be much easier to keep up in the future learning.

FYR: All my GCSE students' results are above grade A, 98% of which got A*.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic and devoted Foreign Language Teacher. I've been teaching Italian in London since 2010. I am well trained, confident and well-resourced.
I am enjoying teaching as I have great opportunities to meet and interact with a wide range of people of all abilities, from all over the world, who have so much to teach me!!
To be part of their learning experience and helping them to make good progress is absolutely rewarding.
I am very dedicated to my job and to offering the highest quality in Italian language teaching.
Every single student is unique to me, consequently, my courses are designed to suit their specific needs. I teach a wide range of courses,from beginners to proficiency and find all of them satisfying in their own way.
My every day goal is to provide the best service, encouraging creativity and creating a very happy atmosphere.
Students always put a smile on my face; it's so nice to see their communicative competence develop and to be a facilitator of this.

The language will be taught in the context of the social, cultural and historical aspects of Italy. A variety of activities will be used, including role-plays, watching films, listening to CDs, grammar exercises and group work. The course will be based on communicative and direct methods and active participation will be strongly encouraged.

Personal Description:
I'm an experienced and professional freelance multi skilled broadcast operator; I have expert and up to date knowledge of Broadcast Camera, Sound and Editing technology and techniques.

The land scape of TV is changing and Producers and Directors are now also expected to be able to shoot as well as organise the production. Being able too shoot an edit at a Professional level will soon become essential for anyone planning to enter TV production.

I'm offering 2 courses which move from beginner to advance level taking in theory and practical application:

Location Shooting

We look at the theory of camera and sound and how to apply that theory practically to modern cameras in a number of shooting environments, taking you from beginner level right through to broadcast professional. We'll look at differing camera technologies, the advantages of one camera over another and look at how lighting should be set up depending on the type of camera being used. We not only go through the technical knowledge, but also develop best practice and give job finding advice.

Editing

I train you how to use Final Cut Pro 7 from beginning to end, We'll look at editing techniques and the art of it, but also delve in to the more technical elements like ingest and codecs; how to create the best workflow possible to preserve the image quality and make the finished product practical for delivery.

These courses can be run together with the additional bolt on of Colour correction with will greatly improve your understanding of how shooting environment and how you set up a camera will effect the end product.

Teaching Experience:

As a head Technician at Pro Motion Hire I taught Broadcast professionals how to use all manner of camera's from scratch, teaching them how to become a Broadcast Professional Level Camera Operator.

Tutoring Approach:

I attempt to tailor make each lesson to suite the individual taking in to account their level of knowledge. I always endeavour to make the subject matter engaging and always try to link it to the individuals interests and needs.

I like to use practical examples and try to give you as much hands on experience with the kit as possible.

I am extremely patient and will take as much time as is necessary to help you understand any give subject.

Personal Description:
I'm a trained CELTA teacher with a passion for languages and music. I'm a bilingual native English and Spanish speaker and I'm also fluent in Italian as I lived and got my university degree in Rome.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught languages privately (English, Spanish and Italian) for 10 years to all levels and ages ranging from 5 to 70 years old. I currently teach English at a language school in Totnes as well as private one-to-one Italian and Spanish lessons and adult Italian group lessons in the South Hams area.

Tutoring Approach:

The overall approach to my teaching is communicative and the lessons are tailored to the learner's individual needs, whether it is preparation for an exam or work on specific skills and/or language functions. Initially, there would be a meeting with the student and, in the case of children, their parents, to determine the goals they want to achieve with the tutoring. I would be happy to provide written reports on the progress to the child's parents if required or arrange for meetings.

Personal Description:
I am 21 years old, calm, confident and friendly. I am very passionate about mathematics. I am very patient, especially because I know how much is expected of students nowadays.

Teaching Experience:

I studied GCSEs at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School for 5 years, and then I studied A Levels at Clitheroe Royal Grammar Sixth Form for 2 years.

For Chemistry and Biology I am familiar with the AQA specification, both at GCSE and A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone is different and learns in their own way; my aim is to find a style of learning that best suits each student, and also to identify any topics they may be struggling with and work on them.
I aim to develop good relationships with my students in order to make them feel comfortable. From my personal experience, I know that anyone's ability to learn is improved when they are more relaxed. I want to ensure that the learning environment is suitable for the student to maximise their potential.
I like to ensure that the student has a fundamental understanding of a topic before moving on to exam technique, exam style questions and revision.

Personal Description:
I'm currently studying a teaching degree at University and I received top grades at A Level and degree level. I'm very patient, caring and good at explaining topics in detail. I also received good grades at GCSE level, primarily English and Science. I'm creative and I love to write children's books, my talents in art range from using traditional techniques to digital techniques and I enjoy 3D modeling and 3D animation. I enjoy mentoring and helping others.

I want to help others to achieve their full potential and I love seeing my tutees improve dramatically, it is a lovely feeling to know you've helped.

My specialist subjects are art, creative writing, English and IT. I enjoy tutoring English and writing skills, it is a passion for me that I endeavor to pass on to my tutees. I can help tutees with grammar and punctuation and general writing skills such as, dialogue, descriptive writing, using adjectives, improving article and essay writing....and more. I l also love editing and proofreading.

In terms of art I can help in most areas, I'm very passionate about art and my style is semi-realistic. I can help with drawing and painting skills, perspective drawing, drawing people, drawing animals, cartoons, manga. I'm able to give advice on portfolio preparation and sketchbook presentation, I can also help with art and artist analysis. I can also tutor digital techniques such as 3D modelling, animation and Photoshop skills.

I set optional homework. The tutee can have a go and will be based on what we have done in the sessions.

I have worked as a freelance 3D artist, as a Teaching Assistant, worked with learning disabled students and as a Private/Home Tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have volunteered with students with learning disabilities teaching them life skills and art/computer skills. I have been put forward as a Learning Mentor at University, to help students with academic writing.

I'm currently working part-time as a Teaching Assistant in Art and Animation and I'm tutoring as a Private/Home Tutor with students of various ages and ability.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually start by finding out what the student finds most difficult and what they enjoy, I write all this down. I also create tutorial videos that the student can access and explanations and tips all placed either online or on paper. I sit with the tutee and go through their work and help them as necessary and find out what they find most difficult. I tend to go above and beyond and I endeavor to help where possible to help the tutee succeed in their subject.
