Personal Description:
A trilingual professional and qualified teacher with 2 MA's degrees in languages and long tutoring and instructing experience. I will help you to understand your work better and expand your knowledge in the subject. My language lessons are carefully planned and tailored especially for individual students according to their level and needs. My students practice the main 4 language skills - reading, speaking, listening and writing. My main objective is to develop skills in order to improve fluency and confidence in dealing with native colleagues and clients.

Teaching Experience:

My skills are based on solid academic experience. I have got around 6 years of tutoring experience and worked with adults, children and professionals.
- Worked alongside leading academics in the field of methodology as an assistant
- Conducted research and analysis
- Organised conferences and assisted in consecutive and liaison interpreting
- Assisted in translation of articles and legislations eg. Polish Labour Code
- Worked internationally as Russian/English and Polish tutor in Poland, UK and Holland therefore I am culturally sensitive and adaptable
- 2 years' experience in working with students and professionals in China (Fujian International Business & Economic College) as TEFL teacher & Foreign Language Expert

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that one of my best qualities as a teacher is my ability to inspire confidence in my students so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves regardless their level of ability. Central to my philosophy of teaching is to create stimulating yet non-competitive environment in the classroom. I always feel it is my responsibility to inspire my students to want to achieve their maximum potential. I have strong confidence that a learner can utilise his or her ability to the fullest if he or she has the utmost willingness to do so. As for me, I was fortunate to be introduced to my second languages at a very young age. I discovered that there were several factors that contributed to the level of effectiveness of learning the second language back then.
Having a strong intrinsic motivation to learn the language is crucial, you always need to find ways to develop your language vocabulary, practice correct pronunciation, listening speaking, reading and writing skills. You have to be resourceful -find ways to improve yourself. Spend some time reading foreign newspapers during weekends and make foreign language dictionary your new life partner!

Personal Description:
Hi. My name is Llinos. I am 37 and live in Eastleigh near Southampton. I currently work part time as a History teacher in a senior state school. I have previously been Head of History in a very successful senior girls' grammar school and in private prep school. I have also had several History teaching roles up to A2 level as well as teaching Maths and English up to year 8.

Over the last 14 years I have taught a wide range of History topics at all levels and to a wide variety of abilities from EAL students to preparation for Oxbridge interviews. I have also prepared pupils up to 13 for the Common Entrance English examination and have provided on-going support in English focussing on literacy, grammar etc.

I work for OCR as an A Level and GCSE examiner so am fully aware of the requirements needed to attain the best grade possible here. I have also attended several INSETS of the other main exam boards at both GCSE and A Level as well as the most recent meeting for History at Common Entrance level so have a very good knowledge of all public examinations.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching History for over 14 years. I taught in a very high achieving boys' grammar school (Reading School) forc2 years before becoming Head of History in a very high achieving girls' school (Kendrick).
I taught all years including GCSE and A level and think that I have covered all main exam boards and many of the topics taught at all levels. Most girls gained A*-A grades at both levels.

I also ran the Berkshire group for the Learning Skills Council to work to improve attainment at A Level for all abilities as well as presenting at LSC conferences on study skills and how to stretch the most able in History.

I then taught in a private girls school where my duties involved helping pupils with English as a second language gain a higher-level pass at A Level as well as teaching all years of mixed ability including GCSE and A Level classes.

Until recently, I worked in a prep school as Head of History and delivered one-to-one lessons with all of my year 8 pupils in preparation for their exams. Last year, my class of 18 very mixed ability pupils all gained A*-B in their Common Entrance History exam.
I have also taught English, Geography, Maths and RS at secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

I have done much work on study skills, particularly mind-mapping, and learning styles. It is a bit of a passion that I have in addition to the History!

I love teaching pupils one-to-one and working out what is going to be the best method (or methods) of learning for them. I also see that the problem can sometimes be happening at a very basic level to a large extent. For example - if a student is just sent off to 'make notes' without ever having been actually guided in HOW to make these notes.

I don't really think I have an 'approach' in general as I truly believe that, in a one-to-one situation, methods can and should be completely tailored to the specific needs of that individual pupil.
Depending on those needs, I can work with students to produce specific and useful sets of notes, work on examiantion technique, provide extensive essay feedback, help them recognise how to remember specific historical details and which ones to bother learning etc.

Personal Description:
I am PhD student in School of Engineering, University of Hull. I would like to express my interest as tutor in hull. I have done my master's from France and then one research project in Ireland. I have good communication skills and fond of interacting with people.

I try to build their imagination power as well, if subject requires. I feel its my responsibility to make concept clear to my student. This is the way we teach in India.

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 a successful local tutor and teacher with an MA in Education from Oxford Brookes University (2016), a Postgraduate Diploma in English and Language in Education from the University of Reading (2012). I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Secondary - English) from Oxford Brookes University (2007) and a BA Hons in English Literature (2006). I am passionate about my subject and enthusiastic about improving both my pedagogical and subject knowledge. With A Level clients, I often re-read the key exam texts and exam specifications in order to deliver a successful tutorial. For GCSE, I am confident with multiple exam boards but, again, I take a sincere interest in changes to qualifications and specifications. I have recently led a team of ten teachers in our delivery of the GCSE English qualification through WJEC. Part of my role included observing good teaching practice and documenting this for staff appraisals.

Teaching Experience:

I have ten years experience of working in the state secondary sector as a Qualified English Teacher; teaching anything from Key Stage 3 (11 years - 14 years) up to Key Stage 5 (A Level) including GCSE. I currently teach GCSE and iGCSE English at a popular FE college for adults, returning to education, and for full-time learners aged 16+. In addition, I have previously worked as a Learning Support Assistant, at a Catholic primary school in Reading. I have also taught American children how to use movie editing packages, such as iMovie, in Maine, USA.

Tutoring Approach:

The rapport with the parent is as just as important as the tutee. In order to make a success of the tuition, it's paramount to have a good professional relationship with both. I use feedback from the tutee's parent (via a school report) and informal feedback from the tutee to create an Individual Tuition Plan which includes setting three clear targets. Depending on the key stage and ability of the tutee, this can range anything from parenthetic comma use to translating Chaucerian poetry!

Personal Description:
MA in English Language, PGCE, experienced examiner of GCSE English Language for AQA exam board (5 years). I have been teaching for six years and have been awarded outstanding by Ofsted in school inspections. I can tutor GCSE English Language and/or Literature, English grammar, and entrance exams. I am passionate about my subject and I also like to use it as a vehicle for students to explore morals, ethics and identity; I am most happy when I feel I am teaching students core skills, as well as broadening their knowledge of our rich history or important current affairs.

Teaching Experience:

I am a graduate of the Teach First programme. Teach First is a charity that tackles educational disadvantage by placing graduates in schools which are in challenging circumstances. As a result of this, I had to learn how to plan and deliver lessons that were fun and engaging, as well as educational. Many of the students in my classes were behind because the school hadn't been able secure permanent staff, so I also had to learn how to accelerate their progress quickly, if they were to have any hope of reaching their true potential. I signed up to examine English Language at GCSE for AQA and this was certainly helpful, as I was able to give my students a big insight into the skills that were required and the mistakes that were often made. I have been an examiner for the last five years, so my knowledge and experience here would certainly benefit someone about to start in year 11. I am passionate about making English as a subject relevant and I am lucky that English provides a lot of opportunities for that; I can teach the core skills using texts from contexts that students will relate too, which really helps to build confidence and maintain engagement.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always aim choose engaging texts for my tutees to work with because I want the sessions to be engaging as well has educational, especially if this is an extra session on top of all the lessons in school.

I think it is important to break down core skills like 'analysis' and 'evaluation', so that students actually understand what is required of them. Often, students are asked to 'explain' and analyse and their students have no idea what this actually means or how to do it. I have tried and tested resources, which will support my tutee and help them to do this.

I think it is important to encourage independence in any tutee, but we can't just expect it to happen, just because we have asked. I feel that modelling good outcomes and the writing process, as well as asking students to critique their own work and the work of others is key in helping students to be more independent. This is something I have achieved in a classroom setting and so, I am confident that I can help a tutee to do the same.

Personal Description:
Prior to becoming a maths teacher I trained as as a Chartered Accountant and worked in Business and Finance. After having my family I moved into education and initially taught Business and Accounting at A level. I later qualified as a secondary maths teacher and have taught maths in a high achieving 11- 18 local school for 8 years as well a providing one to one tuition both at school and privately.

Teaching Experience:

Secondary Maths teacher, KS3 and KS4 since 2009,
Sixth Form tutor in Business and accounting
Private Maths tutor, KS2,KS3 and KS4 for 10 years

Tutoring Approach:

I love maths and believe everyone is capable of succeeding and also learning to love maths if they are given the confidence to do so. Many students struggle because they may have been put off maths at a early age or missed out on some essential building blocks which have limited their progress.
I believe in going to back to basics and establishing a thorough understanding of crucial concepts, using different teaching styles to suit the individual needs of the student. I enjoy getting to know my students and being able to tailor my teaching to their personalities and needs.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Peloponnese in Greece 2 years ago. I studied Greek Literature - Greek Philology. Now, I have my Master's degree in Classics at Newcastle University. The final thesis of my undergraduate studies had the title 'An interpretive approach to the Prologue of Philoctetes and Ajax: the character of Odysseus'. My dissertation's topic in my postgraduate studies is ''The borderlines of sanity: the transition from madness to rationality in the heroes of Sophocles and Euripides'. I am interested in the ancient Greek texts of all the periods. However, I can teach Greek of all stages, since my mother tongue is Greek and my degree is on it.

Teaching Experience:

I used to teach Greek at students of all ages in private lessons. More specifically, I used to help them with their homework for school and prepare them for their exams. Moreover, I had completed my practice at 4th High School in Kalamata, Greece, where I was teaching ancient and modern Greek. I have experience in teaching both children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Lectures in respect to the needs of each child or adult. Preparation for homework and exams. Extra readings and homework, so as to broaden their horizons. Focus on the grammar, vocabulary and syntax.

  • Greek
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (18 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I am a friendly and enthusiastic Oxbridge graduate with a Masters in Earth Sciences (Geology).

Since 2014 I have been working as a Geoscientist in a consultancy, which has provided me with solid communication skills when discussing technical work.

Teaching Experience:

In my last year of school I took part in a scheme which involved acting as a teaching assistant to year 8 students. I would spend a couple of hours each week supporting and helping students with in a variety of classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I apply the tutoring methodology I experienced during Oxford. This involves encouraging students to arrive at conclusions themselves rather than tell them the answers to each question. This builds up a deeper understanding of the topics and will allow them to enter the exam room with the confidence of knowing they possess all the information they need to answer any question which may come up, rather than worrying in case this years paper differs from the examples they have worked through.

Personal Description:
Physics is (in my opinion) a fantastic subject, and one that is highly regarded in society, not to mention indispensable if a career in engineering or some of the sciences is to be pursued.

Before I decided to change career and become a teacher, I worked for a British sports car manufacturer as a design engineer, using many of the principles I now teach in my then, day to day work.

I graduated from Coventry University in 2000 with a BEng (Hons) in Automotive Engineering Design, before going on to read an MBA in Business Management.

After a number of years working in the automotive industry, I got involved in teaching through the Formula Schools initiative.

I graduated from The University of Nottingham in 2010 with a PGCE in Secondary Science (Physics).

This history of working in industry before going becoming a teacher/tutor allows me to bring in relevant examples of where the theory fits in with the real world. I feel that this is important and I find it helps to bring a subject to life for the student,

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a physics teacher in 2010 and have worked as a teacher or tutor since.

I now work full time as a physics tutor, working on a one to one basis with students across a spectrum of abilities at both G.C.S.E. and A level.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide a calm, friendly approach, taking care to find where precisely the student is having problems, then either tweak theories and knowledge in order to correct any misconceptions or start from the beginning with them, taking the time to fully support, explain and develop the student's knowledge and skills in that area, making sure that the foundations are laid to create a strong base for any future knowledge to be built upon. This is important in both G.C.S.E and A level as they are both built upon a spiral curriculum, whereby topics and previous knowledge are revisited and used time and time again throughout the course.

Often, the difference between a puzzled look and the "eureka" moment that all teachers strive for, is just one explanation or a slight tweak on the explanation of a theory away. Sometimes, the difference may be supporting the examples and calculation side, this support then giving the student the confidence in their knowledge and understanding.

In addition to providing subject content tuition, I also provide exam preparation and technique,, past paper practice, revision schedules, constant progress monitoring and ongoing progress evaluation..
