Personal Description:
I went to school in Rugby and have lived here off and on for the last 50 years. I retired early from teaching to go travelling in Europe in a Camper Van. My hobbies include DIY, cooking, pub quizzes, golf, walking and following Chesterfield football club. I enjoy socialising and spending time with my family. I work occasionally for an out of school tuition service teaching Mathematics to students who are out of school for medical reasons. My main subjects are A level and GCSE Economics, A level and GCSE Business and GCSE Mathematics. I also teach privately and over the last 2 years have taught seven students. The 3 students I taught mathematics to both achieved C grades at higher level. Initially they were studying foundation level! The 4 students who studied A Level Economics with me all achieved A* in their examinations.

Teaching Experience:

I taught for 30 years in 3 different schools and 2 colleges of further education. I have taught Economics, Business Studies and Mathematics to GCSE level and Business Studies and Economics to A level. The students I have taught have nearly always achieved their potential grade or better. I have taught students of all levels of ability and always established a good working relationship with them.

Tutoring Approach:

I have experiece of teaching students on a one to one basis having taught Economics and Mathematics as a private tutor. I believe it is important to establish a positive working relationship with each student I teach. It is important to establish early on the weaknesses in understanding of different topics and where possible to turn these weaknesses into strengths. Very often problems in understanding are due to a lack of confidence sometimes because the tutee is reluctant to ask for clarification in the classroom or because they simply don't understand the basics of the subject. On a one to one basis the tutor has more time to explain the basics and develop the skills of the tutee and the tutee is more likely to respond to this without feeling they are inadequate.
An important part of tutoring is practicing exam type questions and past examination papers in order to increase the students confidence and ability to answer questions under examination conditions. The key to success is establishing which topics are easy for the student to understand and making sure the students can answer any possible exam questions on these topics.

Personal Description:
I am an English and Portuguese Teacher and Translator. I translate and interpret from English to Portuguese and vice versa. I teach Portuguese and English as a foreign language.

Are you considering learning Portuguese? Here are some reasons why Portuguese might be an excellent choice for you:

• Portuguese is the sixth most widely spoken language in the world with over 230 million speakers in four continents.

• The official language of eight countries: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, and São Tome and Príncipe, Madeira and the Azores.

• Widely spoken, though not official, in parts of India, Macau, Andorra, Luxemburg, Paraguay, South Africa, and Namibia.

• The working and/or official language in important international organizations such as the African Union, the Community of Portuguese Language Countries, the European Union, and Mercosul, the Organization of American States, the Organization of Ibero-American States, and the Union of South American Nations.

• Brazil is a 21st-century economic and industrial powerhouse. It is the 5th largest economy in the world, recently overtaking the UK's economy.

• Numerous scientists consider Brazil to be the country with the most important biological diversity in the world.

• You want to learn Portuguese as it's your partner's native language and you want to improve communication between you.

• I teach European Portuguese (Portugal), Brazilian Portuguese (Brazil) and African Portuguese (Angola and Mozambique).

So what are you waiting for? Come learn Portuguese.

Are you considering learning English? Here are some reasons why English might be an excellent choice for you:

• English is the first language of approximately 375 million people, is the official language in 54 countries and is the third largest language by number of native speakers, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

• When combining native and non-native speakers, it is the most commonly spoken language in the world.

• The importance of learning English cannot be overstated in an increasingly connected and globalized world.

• For the many people that come to the United Kingdom from non-English-speaking countries every year, learning to communicate in English is important to enter and ultimately succeed.

• Working knowledge of the English language can create many opportunities in international markets and regions.

So what are you waiting for? Come learn English with me.

ADVANTAGES OF LEARNING WITH ME

I teach one-to-one or to small groups. If you have friends or colleagues that want to learn a language with you and are at a similar level, you can study together at a discounted rate.

- Lessons at your location of choice

I give lessons at your location of choice. Having classes at your home or office can save you a lot of time and money, with all the comfort and practicality that you desire.

Private tuition is the most flexible and convenient way to learn a language. You choose the day and time that best suits your needs.

My courses are also flexible, which means you do not need to commit to a long-term course that traditional language schools provide. You can plan your learning and have classes when you want. You can reschedule your lessons if for some reason you are unable to have them. You are free to change day and time of your lessons according to your needs.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 12 years of experience as a teacher. From 2004 to 2006, I worked as a History, Portuguese, English and other subjects tutor to primary and secondary students. From 2006 to 2012, I worked as a tutor guiding students in preparation of essays and dissertations in many different fields. Since 2012 I work as a full time Portuguese and English teacher in UK. I have experience with one-to-one and group lessons; beginners, intermediate, advanced and proficiency levels, present tuition and online tuition via Skype; teaching children from the age of 2; preparation for GCSE and A-level exams (OCR board); general training and language training for business purposes.

I have a degree in History with a teaching certificate which included one internship at a secondary school as a teaching assistant. I have a CRB and a DBS check. I did a 3-month training course for teachers at SLAS (Society for Latin American Studies) in 2012. I am flexible about working hours and commuting to work.

Tutoring Approach:

• Business: My teaching method is based on a communicative approach, focusing on achieving fluency, improving reading and listening comprehension, and expanding vocabulary. I teach the use of Portuguese in a variety of business environments, based on key skills like presenting information, taking part in meetings and videoconferences, handling telephone calls, negotiating and writing concise business letters, e-mails or reports.

• E-learning: My e-learning method is specifically designed for adults who may have limited hours available, prefer the convenience of learning online and need to improve their Portuguese language skills quickly.

• GCSE and A-level exams: I coach the student using past papers, besides writing, reading and listening exercises.

• Children and Teenagers: My lessons for children and teenagers are varied and enjoyable, with music, culture, and multimedia features to make the learning process very enjoyable and practical.

Personal Description:
I have been a practicing musician for over 19 years and have a broad experience in performance, composition, songwriting, production, recording, music theory and music technology. My primary instrument is guitar in a range of styles, including electric, acoustic and classical. I also teach bass guitar to an intermidiate level.
In 2004 I complete a degree in music where I was awarded a First Class an award for outstanding achievment in my final year, finishing top of my year group.
I currently write and perform with a garage-rock group as guitarist and lead vocalist while teaching guitar privately and in schools.

Teaching Experience:

7 years instrumental teaching experience in students homes and in schools.
Theory and technology tuition also available.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in developing and expanding every aspect of a student's musical knowledge and awareness through their instrument, starting immediately with practical play and gradually leading onto music theory and reading. I aim to inspire students and help them to develop their natural interest and excitment for the instrument so they look forward to playing, at any level, and look forward to lessons.

Personal Description:
I'm a very friendly 19 year old student at Loughborough University studying Sports Technology, this is a unique course consisting of Mechanical Engineering, Product Design, and Sports Science modules.
I have 3 little brothers so I have some experience in helping them with their maths.

I have always been good at mathematics, finding it easy to understand and learn. I achieved A* at GCSE and A at A Level.
I have a brother who has just achieved an A* at GCSE maths who I had helped in the areas in which he struggled. I also have a brother who I helped pass his common entrance maths exam 2 years ago at the age of 13.

I am also a ski and snowboard instructor and have been since the age of 16, so I am very experienced in teaching all ages of students.

I am confident in my mathematical ability and my ability to teach.

Teaching Experience:

I have assisted in my brothers' maths exams in the areas they struggled in (GCSE and Common Entrance).
I am also a very experienced ski and snowboard instructor so have lots of teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I would have to do all tutoring on my computer using Skype as I am currently at University.
I would be able to help with their homework difficulties and coaching towards upcoming exams.

Personal Description:
I got a Masters Degree in Engineering and PGCE in Secondary Mathematics. This provided me with the knowledge and ability to teach up to A-Level Mathematics, including all Core modules, Further Mathematics, Mechanics, Statistics and Decision mathematics. I have been offering private tuition for 5 years.

Teaching Experience:

I have 6 years maths teaching experience in secondary school and six-form college and 12 years teaching experience in University. I have been providing one-to-one and small group tuition since 2007. 100% of my GCSE and A level private tutoring students have achieved grade B or above.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to one-to-one tuition is always to begin with identifying the pupil's areas of strengths and weaknesses and using this information to set targets that are in-line with the aim of the tuition sessions. I have high expectations of all my students and always encourage a pupil to make the most out of every session and achieve the best they can. I also make myself available via skype for any questions they may have.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced teacher of mathematics and physics at GCSE and A level. I am registered with the DfE and possess Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Over the past two years I have conducted hundreds of Intervention Tutorials in local schools particularly in mathematics. In my private tutoring much of my work involves helping students to get the grades they need to pursue their chosen A level studies or to get to the university of their choice. My results in these respects have been first rate. I conduct home visits for students based in Bournemouth and Poole and online tuition for those based further afield.

Teaching Experience:

Over ten years teaching experience in schools, colleges and private one to one tuition. Throughout this time I have taught maths and physics mostly at GCSE and AS/A2 level. My experience covers AQA, OCR and Edexcel exam boards. It includes mathematics up to and including Further Maths (FP1/FP2,...)

Tutoring Approach:

Most of my tutees are looking for help in raising their grades especially for university entrance purposes and whilst I spend considerable time helping tutees work through past paper exam questions I always emphasise the need for a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts.

Most of my tutees have a good idea where in the syllabus they have issues and these tend to be the starting point in a tutorial. Identifying gaps in their knowledge and understanding and then helping tutees to bridge these gaps is a key feature of my tutorials. I also place considerable emphasis on problem solving as this is ultimately what the exams are all about in mathematics and physics.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD student with a passion for impacting knowledge in children. I have worked with children for the past 10 years on various subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children aged between 4 and 11 maths/reading and writing in the past. This was mostly voluntary due to the passion I have for children. I equally tutor chemical engineering students at the university.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach with school books and internet materials. Visual aid is a necessity as it give a clearer picture of what is being taught. The children are made to reflect on what has been learnt prior to the start of a new session. I also take time to study the children in order to identify the strengths and areas that need improvements.

Personal Description:
I am a returning ex-pat having lived and worked in Spain for 13 years. I learned Spanish naturally and have a similar approach to teaching. I use the similarities between the languages to lower barriers and make learning fun and easy. I teach natural Spanish not endless grammar or lists of nouns or verbs. I have been in a face to face environment all my working life and put people at their ease quickly. I have used the language in both a casual and business environment.

Teaching Experience:

As a private tutor I have been helping students for over 3 years now. I have developed a method of making the language accessible and easy to speak. There are no verb lists. Here's the challenge: I can teach present tense verb endings in 10 minutes, past tense in 5 minutes and future in one minute. How long have you been trying? Make learning fun!

Tutoring Approach:

I learned Spanish naturally and have a similar approach to teaching. I use the similarities between the languages to lower barriers and make learning fun and easy. I teach natural Spanish not endless grammar or lists of nouns or verbs. Students find my methods fun and relevant. I can offer support to academic learning within a curriculum or help people to get by on holiday. If required I can take a student through to fluency in a manner more suited to everyday use.

Personal Description:
Having completed a PGCE from the University of Oxford, I am a qualified Mathematics teacher, currently working at one of the top schools in the country. Tutoring is not something I just do on the side of another full time job; teaching Mathematics is my passion and career. During my Undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Warwick, I have spent time teaching Mathematics at schools in England and South Africa. Having worked as a private tutor for over five years, I provide top quality teaching that is tailored to the needs of each individual pupil. I am passionate about the teaching of Mathematics and seek to instil not just a deep relational understanding, but also an enthusiasm for Mathematics into his pupils.

Teaching Experience:

BSc in Mathematics, University of Warwick
PGCE in Mathematics, Keble College, Oxford
2 years teaching at one of the top boys' schools in the country (at present)
Private Mathematics tutor for over five years

Tutoring Approach:

It is my belief that every child has potential to achieve excellent results at school mathematics if they are provided with the correct support and work ethic. It is my aim to spend time with your child in order to design an individual teaching programme that will allow them to develop their strengths and work on the gaps in their knowledge. My tutoring is much more than supervising a child's school work or simply providing them with extra worksheets. As a full time Mathematics teacher, I can ensure that you will not only be getting a tutor who is incredibly dedicated, but also a teacher who has been trained and is practicing mathematics teaching at on the finest schools in the country.

Personal Description:
Hi there! I`m a young professional drummer based in London. I am an enthusiastic and down to earth educator and have been providing drum tutoring for a number of years to all ages and abilities. I cover a wide range of styles and techniques, providing my students with the best tools to achieve their full potential.

I am happily married to my wife Ruth and love music, motor racing, films and good coffee! Thank you very much for your time.

Teaching Experience:

I received private drum tuition myself for a number of years from an excellent educator. I have been teaching drums to young children, teenagers and adults for over 4 years. I have taught classes at professional music schools, and provided one to one tuition as well. I have lots of experience reading and writing drum music, have been a professional musician for 10 years, and love it!

Tutoring Approach:

I have a thorough and practical approach to teaching. I believe in my students setting their own goals (with some suggestions from me), whilst encouraging and equipping them to achieve their best. I use a very down to earth and open approach to education. I hope to develop an excellent rapport with any student, so they can share their own goals and musical aspirations, so we can work together to achieve them. I am keen for my students to pursue practice in their own time, and provide them with the encouragement and inspiration to make that happen. I aim to build my students confidence greatly on the instrument, and give them a sense of real accomplishment in music.

I recently passed a DBS check for work within a school. I`ve been a member of the musicians union for many years, and can offer a great insight into the world of music through a professional`s eyes.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying Physics at my third year in Oxford University. I thoroughly enjoy learning and teaching alike and hope to pursue teaching Physics after my degree.
Due to my degree I am in England 6 months a year but live in Northern Ireland all Christmas, Easter and the months of July, August and September.

Teaching Experience:

I was involved in the tutor scheme at Ballyclare High School when I attended, where I worked with 1st to 3rd years with their science and maths.
I have been working with UK tutors for over a year and already helped numerous pupils across secondary school age.
I was awarded the Scott Prize for Teaching Physics in Schools when I took it as one of my options during my degree.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and patient tutor. I find the more enjoyable a subject is the easier it is to remember. I find working through questions is the best way to apply knowledge.

Personal Description:
My name is Leon and I provide training in website design and development - of which I have over 15 years experience in this field gained real commercial projects include those related to names such as Unicef and New Scientist magazine.

My training services allow you to understand all aspects you need to start a career in web design or web development - or to create your open website for your hobby or business. Additionally, I am able to help students studying at GCSE, A-Level or degree who are studying web design/development as part of the course.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught subjects of web design and web development to individuals at all academic levels as well as in industry, where I have delivered training for organisations including the NHS, Dundee Council and Halesowen College. Web design and development topics I have taught include:

* Web accessibility
* UX design
* Web security
* Front end web development - HTML5, CSS and Javascript
* Server side web development - PHP, MySQL and MVC
* Content management systems - including Wordpress
* SEO and social media for websites

I have also written a series of tutorial articles and cover features on the above topics for Web Designer Magazine, which can be found in shops such as WH Smith.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one tuition is the most effects for individuals with a specific need for training or tuition relating to programming because this allows sessions to be tailored specific to the learner in terms of the types of example problem to solve. This type of session would be delivered using the pair programming approach, where an example application is developed and adapted in collaboration with the learner.

My tuition can also be provided online - making use of Skype to provide direction.

Personal Description:
I am a studious and hardworking student currently in Year 12. I am undertaking 5 A Level Subjects; Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History and Physics and attend Sir Thomas Rich's Grammar School in Gloucester. My hobbies include music (in which I play Baritone, Piano, Saxophone and some percussion), basketball and snooker.

I am academically minded and came out of GCSE's with all A*'s. In the future, I am looking to study economics at University in the United States.

Teaching Experience:

I currently work at the local KUMON maths and English centre. I work a few hours each week and my job involves giving students guidance on how to complete maths and English problems. My specialty is maths and I am one of the most advanced mathematicians in the tutoring staff. I have privately tutored my sister in maths in preparation for the 11+ and now that she is in year 7, I continue to assist her with mathematics and the other subjects which she is taking.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be tailored to the needs of individuals. For example, a student who is highly capable will take a more laid back approach in which I will try to get the student to work out mathematical concepts, or physical concepts on their own. However, if a student is struggling with a particular topic, then I will take a more guiding role and assist the student in a more direct way.

Fortunately, I have received a huge amount of information regarding exam technique; I know all of the tricks which come up in Maths Exams having completed a huge amount of past papers. In addition, I can teach study skills to help my students achieve the very best results available.

I believe that my job as a tutor is not to force principles on students as law, but for them to understand how the principles have been derived. If you can understand where something has come from, it makes it much easier to remember and apply when it comes to an exam.

Evidence suggests that teaching is much more effective when a student can connect with their teacher. Thus, I believe that I would be an ideal tutor because I will be more able to empathise with the student. Moreover, since I am still in full time education, my hours will closely align to students and I will be available at all times online in order to assist with any difficulties a student is facing.

Personal Description:
I am a calm and collected person and this is reflected in my approach towards tutoring. I aim to build rapport and tailor my service to the specific needs of the tutee. I primarily focus on breaking down the curriculum and assessing through mock scenarios and written assessments built upon topics studied as well as experiences the tutee has had.

As the needs of each student are different, i structure my tutoring in a way which provides realistic expectations of both exam and coursework environments and where possible, i supplement this with the use of past examination material to truly replicate the educational environment the tutee is likely to be in.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience has largely been developed by assisting students in the years below me as well as my younger siblings and my cousins with their education. I have developed this further in a professional setting where i have trained colleagues on new and unfamiliar processes. My strengths lie in breaking down complex information and making it readily accessible to tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by engaging the tutee/parent/both in conversation to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, once this has been established, i draw up a comprehensive plan of action to address those needs and where possible, further enhance their existing skillsets. I am to review material with the tutee on a regular basis and ensure they have absorbed the information and more importantly, that they are able to apply it.

Where the tutee requires support via other means such as audio/visual representations of the material - i will endeavour to match this in a suitable manner.
