Personal Description:
I'm a University of Glasgow Biochemistry and MSc International Project Management graduate. I'm a French national and have been living in the UK for 21 years. I'm a lovely person, very dynamic and love the one to one of tutoring. It makes me really happy to help someone achieve something they have worked so hard for.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring privately now for 13 years and have seen my students come to grow in confidence, in understanding and in knowledge of their chosen topics. I saw a girl who I tutored for 7 months go from getting an 'Unclassified grade' in her Biology AS Level to a B in her A2. I have never seen a student of mine's grades stay the same post-tutoring and I am very proud of that.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring different ways depending on who the student is. I ask them questions about themselves, hobbies, favourite subjects etc; and then using that to better understand how they learn, I talk to them about their private learning and revision and the method of approach to that and to exams. And then I teach them using the method appropriate to their style of learning. I also set plenty of work and get them to do past papers which I send to them in the first week. I then take these away and mark them in my own time and return with a deeper view of where they are going wrong after they have been taught. I do 2hr concentrated sessions either weekly or fornightly and have seen great results not only in grades but also in enthusiasm for learning. I am also on hand to discuss career and university options too, which helps ease the daunting choices the students have to make.

Personal Description:
My name is Claudia. I was born in Argentina and have spent half of my life in Spain. I've been living in the UK for 8 years.
I'm passionate about languages and I have a BA in Business Administration and an IH Certificate as Spanish Teacher for Adults accredited by University of Barcelona.
Although my accent is from Spain, I am very aware of the differences between Latin American and Iberian Spanish
I am also a qualified Translator English into Spanish (DipTrans IOL) and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Spanish in London for two years now in private tuitions to all levels.
I have also taught English at Mondragon University in Spain for a year.
I also teach children from pre-school to 11 yrs old in small groups in Hornsey Vale Community Association and St John's Highbury Vale Primary School
I am experienced in preparing students for GCSE Foundation, Higher, AS and A levels.
I also teach in very small groups up to 4 people at a more convenient rate.
Special customized courses for companies in site.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching is based on a communicative approach, aiming to develop the fours skills: Listening, Writing, Speaking and Reading.
I like to know my students interests to make the class as engaging as possible, as I believe that if the student enjoy the class it is more likely s/he will learn more, work harder and won't give up learning Spanish.
I also tailor the classes to meet student's needs tackling their weaknesses.
To reinforce learning I usually start with a short recap of the last class and based on student availability I give homework and correct it.

  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (25 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Having been born in London I am a native speaker of the English language. I have vast experience with speakers of other languages. I recently decided to make a career change and make teaching English to speakers of other language a professional career. I am CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualified. I am also two years into BA (hons) English Language and Literature degree and intend to continue my own personal development by studying for an MA English Language Teaching and Linguistics and by completing the DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) as soon as I am eligible.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught to classes of between six and eighteen students whilst training for the CELTA qualification. The students came from a variety of countries including: France, Italy, Turkey, South Korea, Spain, Chile, Colombia, Russia and Poland. I have taught many more personal one-to-one lessons, mainly within the South American community.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a number of different course books for teaching English and try to make the whole experience as relaxed, fun and interactive as possible. This is easier with larger numbers but can be achieved on a one-to-one basis with a little thought and effort. I use audio and visual materials. Each student will have a preferred method of learning and as individuals we are not usually aware of what type of learner we are, for this reason I employ a number of techniques to make the learning experience as beneficial as possible. The techniques I use are: linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, bodily-kinaesthetic, musical, inter-personal and intra-personal.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for reading this synopsis:

I speak six languages and have been teaching people of all ages and levels now since 2000. My level of success can be equated to the continuous success of my students for sixteen years.

I teach Portuguese, Spanish, English for Foreigners, Italian and French as a fluent native speaker because I have lived in the countries where these languages are spoken.

My degree is in Modern Languages and Linguistics, which means I also edit and translate work into various languages. My MA is in Linguistics and I have worked for years now with well known multinationals and celebrities.

Teaching Experience:

1994 - Taught English for Foreigners and Spanish at the well known Brazilian University of Campinas. I did this whilst doing a year abroad in Brazil to master Portuguese. My students where all faculty deans of that university.
1995-1997 - Taught English, Spanish and Portuguese in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Apple Language School
1997-1998 - Taught at Berlitz in Panama, Republic of Panama also in Quito, Ecuador, and Manchester University.
1999-2003 - Self-employed Language Tutor - teaching individuals and well known organisations such as Delloitte, Mercedes Benz, Unibanco, Santander, Lloyds TSB, DLA Piper International, Volkswagen, PwC and many others.
2003-2004 - Post- Graduate Degree in Modern Languages - Education - Taught at several secondary schools.
2005 - To Date - Have taught several students as a private tutor to pass all exams from GCSEs to Graduate degrees and Doctorates. I have also taught several well known footballers and celebrities.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach as I would like to be taught - By someone experienced who knows what systems work in a secure and fun environment.
I mastered new languages many years ago, but in order to succeed I had to try several systems before perfecting what I now offer - I understand that everyone has different needs so I simply adapt to your needs and make sure that you enjoy what you learn... and learn a lot.

Personal Description:
I grew up in Japan, and have lived and worked in Japan and Taiwan, so I have a good command of Japanese and Mandarin. I have the advantage over native speakers of having mastered them as a foreign language for myself, so I know from experience how to teach it.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching A level and GCSE Japanese at an independent school.

Tutoring Approach:

Have you been teaching yourself Japanese or Chinese for years, and just don't understand why progress is so slow?
Do you want to start making real progress?
Or do you want to learn a few key phrases for a holiday or business trip?
I have over four years experience teaching Japanese and Chinese to children and adults in an interesting, fun, flexible and effective way. In schools, in person, and video call or on the phone.
I will design your lessons exactly to suit you.
I will help you with pronunciation, reading, writing, memorization, and conversation.
I will show you the best way to memorise the characters.
I will encourage you to practice in between our lessons.

I take great pride in providing the best service, and helping you enjoy learning.

Personal Description:
Nice to meet you! I'm Rebecca; I'm 27 years old and graduated from Bangor University with a BSc in Psychology with Clinical and Health Psychology. After university I spent a year as a specialist support worker for adults with autism and autistic traits. With my psychology degree and experience I am more than happy to cater for students that might need a bit of extra help, and have experience teaching students with Aspergers, Personality Disorder, and depression.

Following uni, I spent nearly 2 years teaching English as a foreign language in Japan. Whilst in Japan, I also learnt how to speak conversational Japanese, and can also read and write hiragana, katakana, and first-grade level kanji. I now tutor English and Japanese full time, and have registered my own language services company.

To better understand what is needed for GCSE Japanese, I took my GCSE in 2016 achieving an A*, and plan to take N4 in the Japanese Proficiency test next year. I am happy to help students work towards their GCSE or N5 level Japanese, and I am constantly training to improve my students learning experience.

I welcome any students with special needs; I have vast experience in the Psychological field and work well with anyone who needs that little bit of extra help and attention! I also work great with kids who need help boosting their English and Maths at school- in the last year one of my 5-year-old student's grades have gone from below average to excellent in their school report.

I'm currently teaching in the Northamptonshire area, and have a classroom set up in my home where I do most of my teaching from.

Please note: I am currently fully booked every evening, so I can only offer morning/ early afternoon lessons at the moment.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience includes the 2 years I spent teaching English as a foreign language in Japan, where I designed the yearly teaching schedules, lesson plans, and then taught the lessons. My students were from the age of 3 to 65, so I have experience in teaching all ages. Whilst in Japan I also taught beginner's Japanese to foreigners living in my local area.

Since returning to England in 2013 I've been tutoring English and Japanese full time. I took my GCSE Japanese in 2016 achieving an A*, and plan to take N4 of the Japanese proficiency test next year. I have also been teaching one of my younger students English, Math, and other related subjects required for primary school. I currently have more than 20 students learning Japanese 1-to-1 and relish the challenges and individuality between each new student.

At university I volunteered for several groups including an activity group for disadvantaged children, assisting in secondary school classrooms, volunteering at the local mental health unit and volunteering as a charity shop assistant.

Prior to this, I often tutored my younger sister (who has Asperger's Syndrome) and helped her to understand her school work. I have also clocked up countless hours of babysitting for parents around the local area.

Tutoring Approach:

For teaching English as a foreign language, or when teaching Japanese, I believe a fun, active approach is the most effective. A short amount of time is spent drilling sentences and words; but then these new words and phrases should be used in role plays, games, or challenges to make the new vocabulary stick.

When teaching English, debates about the subject material cause important points to be remembered, help students to structure their arguments more clearly, and let students consider what the most important points are and consider counter arguments. Games for younger children and a variety of different activities to help enforce new vocabulary and sentences are also important.

Personal Description:
I am a 28 year old mum and I have a Master's Degree in English Studies/ English Linguistics, History and Economic Sciences. I graduated in 2010 in Germany. Born in Poland and growing up in Germany I am bilingual in Polish and German and also fluent in English since I have lived in Northern Ireland since 2007. I am very interested in languages and linguistics and would like to use this knowledge to help others, especially children.

Teaching Experience:

I used to give private English lessons to a student aged 11-12 in Germany when I was a student myself. Within weeks his grades started to improve and thus after a few months he did not need any more tutoring.
Apart from this one I do not have any teaching experience, however, I was an assistant manager in a restaurant in my previous job through which I gained a lot of confidence being in a leading/ teaching position.

Tutoring Approach:

Because of my own interest in languages and linguistics I would like to work as a language teacher and fascinate and inspire others to learn different languages or simply help them to improve their language skills. My personal background as well as my degree provide an excellent basis for this.

Personal Description:
I am an A level biology examiner as well as being a fully qualified science teacher with over ten years of experience.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught science to GCSE level and A level biology for over ten years in secondary schools. Since relocating to Stroud, I have tutored students in A level biology for the past four years. I am also an examiner for OCR A level biology. The experience of marking A level papers has enabled me to help my tutees effectively prepare for exams.

Tutoring Approach:

The style of tutoring needed by individual students will vary. It may start with ensuring understanding of the key concepts in biology at an appropriate level. The jump to A level from GCSE is quite considerable and even the brightest students can struggle initially. Another essential skill needed is the ability to pull together biological content taught in different parts of the syllabus. As exam time approaches, a student has to apply their knowledge and understanding to real exam questions. Practice of exam technique is often a large part of a tutorial session in the run up to A level exams. I am able to give feedback on individual questions which enables a student to improve and hone their answers.

Personal Description:
I am a retired primary school teacher who has been a private tutor for fifteen years. I am an experienced and highly qualified counsellor too so my teaching style is supportive and validating.

Teaching Experience:

I was a primary school teacher for 27 years and have been a tutor for 15 years.

Tutoring Approach:

My main approach is to build confidence in a child so that they believe in their own ability to succeed and have skills to solve problems. A child does not need to know the answers but needs to have strategies to work through problems and solve them. This involves accuracy, perseverence, patience and creativity. There is always more than one method and children are encouraged to find their own way to solve solutions using known methods in addition to learning new methods.

Personal Description:
I am a Chartered Accountant with a passion for Maths, have worked for 6 years with big 4 Accountancy firms and MNCs in the past. I am also a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours).

Currently, I am providing Maths Support Sessions for years 1 to 11 as well as GCSE.

I provide one-to-one sessions which ensures individual attention and personalised ways of learning for my students.

I also put strong focus on regular practice which increases children`s confidence and understanding of the subject.

Teaching Experience:

Many years of experience as a Maths teacher as well as a Maths tutor.

Currently, I am providing tuitions to pupils from year 1 to year 11, GCSE, 11+ and other Numerical Reasoning Tests..

Also, provide tuitions for Degree Accounting in the areas of Financial and Management Accounting.

Two testimonial for my tuitions:

1. Yigitsoy (Student - Degree Accounting)
"It helped me to understand the topics very well since I wasn't that good at accounting. Nitisha is really good at putting topics into practice so you can comprehend the course in a very fun and productive way."

1. Catherine (Parent)
"Nitisha has been tutoring my son with weekly lessons for his SATS for approximately 2 months now. She is thorough, explains well and listens to his feedback about his understanding. Over the weeks she has carefully gone through all the things that he was unsure of. He feels much more confident now about his maths and I have seen a significant improvement in the results of his recent SATS tests. I would highly recommend her."

2. Janet (Parent)
My son started off very reluctantly but is actively participating and enjoying maths now. Nitisha is a brilliant, patient, understanding tutor!

Tutoring Approach:

Personal Description:
As a child, I started developing passionefor languages by pretending to speak a different language to my dolls and singing in made languages too. I decided to study languages at UNIVERSITY because I believe that speaking other languages can take you everywhere. I am a bubbly persona nd very professional at the same time. I take any kind of commitment at heart and I stive to achieve the best in every situation. I am a punctual person a d serious regarding my job. I always see the brightest side in everyone and his contribute to my positive view of life. I love my job and I prioritise it. I am also motivated and self driven.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very passionate teacher of languages with years of experience in this field. I started teaching English privately in Italy, my native country, at the age of 16 and then carried on until the age of 24, when I moved to England. I graduated in Modern foreign Languages in Italy. In Bedford I took an Adult teaching certificate and taught ENGLISH as a foreign language. I am currently teaching Italian and Spanish in a secondary school at GCSE and A level levels. I also enjoy private tutoring as part of my teaching role. I am able to cater or all abilities as every student is an individual with different needs and learns at a different pace.

Tutoring Approach:

When contacted, I always contact the leaner back and arrange a meeting. I tend to be quite flexible anc accomodating as I understandsthe difficulties During the first lesson, I try to establish what the individual needs, the learners' goals so that when planning my lesson, I can take these information into account. My approach to tutoring varies according to the age of the learner and his/her prior knowledge of the language or the La ckof it. During my tutorials, I offer a variety of resources and I adopt different teaching style in response to the type of learner. I also set homework as a part of the part of the individual lerning. This is an incentive to boost their confidence in te language they are learning. I really love teaching and sharing my knowledge.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in Engineering Sciences and MBA. I do lot of academic and research work and have been teaching for several years with excellent results. I teach upto University level and I have students who have secured a place in top 3 universities of UK.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. Most of my new students are because of good recommendation given by my old /existing students. Building the fundamentals is the key to performance. Students have finally achieved A star / A grade. Teaching is my hobby and passion.

I teach Maths and Science at A Level, GCSE, KS3, KS2 and prepare students for 13+, 11+

Tutoring Approach:

I usually first conduct an assessment session to understand the gap. Once the current status is known, lessons are build to bridge the gap. Keeping the student motivated is the key. My sessions are very interactive and actually students do the work on board which builds their confidence.

Regular tests, home work are part and parcel of the coaching.

I have prepared revision notes which students have found to be very valuable. It has executive summary for each chapter which helps revise quickly during the exams.
