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:
An experienced examiner. Graduated in Chemistry (BSc) before completing an MSc in Analytical Chemistry, I have been tutoring A-level Chemistry for 10 years. I started tutoring during my PhD studies and have continued ever since. In addition to this I have been marking A-level Chemistry papers for the last 5 years. (AS Organic, Foundation and practical modules). When I was studying in Liverpool, I helped up to 8 students at a time but will be limiting numbers this year. I generally try to make more time available in the run-up to exam season so I might be able to accommodate more.

Teaching Experience:

Approximately 30 students over the last 10 years.

10 Years of marking A-level Chemistry papers.

Tutoring Approach:

This will vary from student to student and the target grades. I am happy to negotiate the approach and pace with the student but do insist on studying around their specific syllabus and like to include exam technique and practise where I can.

I can work through the syllabus from begining to end, last minute cram sessions or limit the tutoring to specific problem areas.

Personal Description:
I am used to teaching students of all ages. I have a first degree in History and English and a masters in Art History. I have been teaching successfully in London for the past 14 years and can honestly say that I have never had a student fail, whether it be for an entrance exam or GCSE, 'A' level or even at University helping with a final dissertation. I enjoy tutoring on a one to one basis and am passionate about my chosen subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at further education colleges in and around London as well as private schools mainly in English and History for G.C.S.E. and 'A' Level students. I am also an Associate Lecturer for the Open University in the Humanities. My main strengths are in private tutoring in which I have been engaged for the past 14 years around London and more recently in Norfolk.

Tutoring Approach:

In the case of coursework for GCSE or 'A' level I am happy to have students email their work for me to check over and then have a lesson in person. With regard to working towards examinations, I prefer to use the question papers as the basis for learning as generally each exam board has a preference for the way in which questions are answered especially in the subjects I teach. English and History especially are open to interpretation I believe the need to read around the subject and offer a wider knowledge than is generally taught at schools or colleges is vital. Regular tuition is therefore preferable, so that all problems can be addressed.

Personal Description:
Hello.
My name is Leonor. I am from Spain and 38 years old.

I am a teacher of Spanish and teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. I love my profession and find teaching more a pleasure than a job. I have discovered that teaching is a two way experience where the teacher often learns as much from the students as the students learn from the teacher. For me, teaching languages is a very rewarding experience. I work with a couple of colleagues online, so we can offer more languages tuition, such as English (British English), French, German, Portuguese and Entrance Exams. All of us are native, qualified and experienced.

I am especially passionate about my native language, Spanish. I love not only the expressive beauty of the written Spanish, but the enchanting, musical sound and rhythm of spoken Spanish. The magic of the language of Cervantes is one of the reasons I have dedicated my life to the study of languages, especially Spanish.

Besides a passion for languages and linguistics, I also enjoy traveling and tracing the roots of human history and civilization. I am especially fascinated by ancient history.

Teaching Experience:

1. Bachelor Degree in Teaching English. University of Cadiz, in Spain.

2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of Leon (Castilla Leon), in Spain.

Several courses about teaching languages methods.

I am a member of ELE Congress (Spanish as a Foreign Language).

Several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian) from children to adults, and all cases with really good results (available to show in case of need).

Two years of experience by teaching languages via Internet.

Tutoring Approach:

Based on the Direct Method, I use a technique of teaching a foreign languages without reference to the students native language. This method of total immersion has been proven to be the most effective means of rapidly developing real language skills. It is recognized as one of the best methods for language instruction and currently used around the world. With this method, students quickly develop the ability to think in their new language. This approach is both easy and satisfying. Student progress is quite rapid. Students progress at their own pace in a relaxed and engaging atmosphere. With my method, students will begin speaking their new foreign language from the very first lesson (guaranteed), even if they have never spoken a word of their new language before.

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammars tiresome and less than effective? COME AND TRY MY METHOD, THE DIRECT METHOD!

Personal Description:
Qualified and experienced EFL specialist. I've been teaching English as a Foreign or Additional Language for 7 years to a wide age range and for a variety of specialist purposes.

I've been teaching in China for the last 3 years and will move back to the UK in July. I'm looking to start tutoring again from August so please get in touch if your looking for a tutor to start around then.

I'm a calm, organised and friendly person. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy learning English and to see the progress they are making.

I'm very interested in using technology in learning and for students who like learning with screens I will integrate other websites and apps into their homework and preparation.

I learned French in school and I'm continuing learning Chinese. I remember my language learning experience in school and in China, I know what a struggle it is to understand new grammar rules and how difficult it can be some weeks to make time to practice. I try to create an enjoyable and supportive environment in lessons so it is not stressful to make mistakes and students don't leave feeling tired out by learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught :
• English in south China for 3 years (2013-2016)
• English as a Foreign/Additional Language for 7 years (2009 - present)
• students preparing for IELTS and PTE
• students writing dissertations and theses
• beginner English speakers and native speakers
• students from 7 years old up to retired grandparents
• English for Business, Medicine and Engineering
• preparation for driving theory and food safety tests

Tutoring Approach:

I like to incorporate games, puzzles and challenges along with the content to help you engage with and better understand how to use the language. I'm very adaptable and will plan lessons based on what you want to achieve and how you like to learn.

For students getting ready for a test I can prepare a course of lessons with exam specific practice and a focus on the areas that most concern you.

For primary age students I have a variety of fun and engaging activities that get them excited about joining in lessons and learning English.

For university students I can give tailored lessons to help with essay, paragraph and sentence structure. I can also review grammar applied to the context of your subject to help you in your academic writing.

Personal Description:
My name is Marco, during the past twelve years, I have taught the Italian language in England and abroad.
My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- organization of workshops, conferences, public lectures and roundtables with teachers, heads of schools, deans of universities to enhance the presence of the Italian language teaching in Guatemala among schools and private and State funded Universities;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;
- creation of strategic networks among various educational partners both locally and internationally for the provision of scholarships for students and teachers in need;


I am graduate in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University Ca' Foscari of Venice and I possess the ITALS Master's Degree in Teaching and promotion of the Italian language and culture to foreigners.

At December 2007 I graduated with success from the ITALS M. A. Degree in Teaching and Promotion of Italian Language and Culture of the University Ca' Foscari of Venice. The topic of my dissertation was linked to how organize an MFL interactive teaching unit in a class composed of students with different abilities.
At the end of May 2008 I published Mosaico Italia, a book on Italian Language and Culture that can be used with students with an Intermediate level of Italian (level B1 of the Common European Reference for Languages). This book aims to provide a didactic instrument to investigateItalian reality.

I added to my knowledge gained 'in the field' by taking the Master's Degree in Education at Birkbeck, University of London, graduating in November 2011 with Distinction. Success on this program entailed my being able to integrate effectively concrete work experience with theoretical knowledge in such a way that I deepened my analytical skills, overall.

Teaching Experience:

My professional experience has regarded various subjects, among which:
- pedagogic investigation about the foreign language teaching;
- foreign language teaching coordination;
- writing of didactic syllabi and curricula;
- assessment principles and criteria;
- implementations in the MFL Italian language syllabus in order to improve the didactic offer;
- organisation of training courses for the CELI exam of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia;
- training of English students to take the GCSE and A-Level in Italian;

Tutoring Approach:

think I am able to enhance the skills of low performing students by individualizing teaching methods and processes. My teaching style focuses very much on the outcomes my students wish to achieve by improving their Italian, be they grammatical, written or conversational. I am dedicated to helping my students learn and improve their Italian in an atmosphere that encourages interaction, listening, feedback and empathy. Above all, I like to make the process of learning Italian a fun experience that enriches my students' personal and professional lives through a sense of achievement.
The teaching techniques, which could be useful in a Foreign Language Tuition, are those in which communication between the tutor and the student is always is promoted. In this regard, mutual interaction and collaboration lead to a more natural learning of the language. This process follows a teaching method where the humanist-affective approach is used to practice the basic and integrated linguistic abilities while learning a foreign language.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the University of Edinburgh four years ago, having obtained a degree (2:1) in English Literature and Spanish (with distinction in spoken Spanish).

I have been learning Spanish for over 10 years, and lived in Spain for a year as part of my degree, where I gained fluency in the language, and was awarded a distinction for my level of spoken Spanish on returning to Edinburgh and completing my degree. I am also passionate about English - both literature and language. I am currently working for a successful music/fashion magazine in London as section editor and have strong editorial and writing skills.

More recently I acquired a Diploma in Journalism (Gold Standard) from News Associates in Wimbledon - including Media Law, News Reporting, Court Reporting, Production, and Shorthand (100 WPM).

Teaching Experience:

I currently tutor a wide range of pupils, from the ages of five to eighteen, as well as adults in a number of subjects - English as a foreign language, Spanish and English literature. I have also taught Maths in the past and am familiar with a range of topics.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the most important thing about tuition is that everyone learns in different way, and as a result I like to adapt my methods of teaching to the individual and tailor my lessons to their specific needs.

I aim to be a fun, engaging tutor and to use a variety of techniques and resources to make the most of the time spent tutoring.

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, approachable, fifth year medical student currently studying at Imperial College London. I am very passionate about education and I find great satisfaction in helping people achieve.

I have GCSEs in Maths, German, French, Geography, Graphics, English Literature, English Language, Religious Studies, IT, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, A2 levels in Maths, Chemistry and Biology and an AS level in Geography. Before commencing my medical studies I read Biochemistry for 4 years at Warwick University and achieved a 2:1.

Due to my experience in applying to medical school I am happy to help with personal statements, UKCAT and interview technique. Having sat in on the interview panels for 2 years at Imperial I can give first hand advice on exactly what medical schools are looking for at interview, and what they want to read on a personal statement.

Teaching Experience:

At Warwick University I was employed as a Biostatistics tutors for the first years for 1 academic year. I also have an abundance of experience working with younger children through various volunteering schemes and therefore I am experienced in helping children of all ages reach their full potential in many aspects of their lives, not just academically.
I have taken 3 students through their GCSEs over the last couple of years and have relished watching their grades and confidence improve

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in tailoring tutoring to each individual's learning style to get the best out of our time together. I do this whilst also trying to create an enjoyable working environment to encourage maximum learning potential. This is especially important with younger students; I want them to enjoy our sessions so that they look forward to them and get the most out of them.
I am also happy to set work to be done outside of the sessions, which can then be worked on together in future meetings.

Personal Description:
I am a recently retired Clinical Scientists (registered). I am married with a son and I am a youthful 67 year old with an 8 years old son! We are a non smoking family. My involvement with "mathematics", at various levels, dates back to when I left secondary school (Blackpool) in 1964 and worked for the Civil Service for 5 years. I was in an accounts division and passed two additional maths (and eventually English!) O'Levels via evening classes as well as enjoying the 60s and playing bass guitar in local groups. I took a 1 year full time A''Level course (Maths, Further Maths and Physics) and subsequently read for a Mathematics degree (Physics subsid.) at the University of Nottingham (1970-73). During this time, I had 3 vacation studentships with different departments of the Scientific Civil Service. After graduating, I worked for around 15 years as a computer programmer / analyst during which time I passed an HND in Computer Studies (University of the South Bank, London). Although I was 40 years old when I was made redundant from a communications company, I decide to make a significant career change and return to my "roots" and look for scientific work where my mathematical skills would be better used. After 2 years as a Medical Laboratory Scientific Officer in the lung function laboratory at the Royal Brompton, I had the tools and experience to apply for a research post in Paediatric Respiratory Medicine at the Royal Post Graduate Medical School (RPGMS, Hammersmith Hospital).

I retired in 2014 after 25 years as a researcher / Clinical Scientist at the RPGMS and Royal London. A large part of my research involved mathematical analysis of breathing patterns and flow-volume curves. This involved developing techniques and algorithms for alternative methods of assessing "lung function". I published many papers in international medical journals and all included a significant maths / stats content. During this time, I took evening classes obtaining additional A' Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Statistics and then read for an M Sc in General Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Kings College London. In 2005, my portfolio was reviewed by the Health Professions Council and I registered as Clinical Scientist, which is a protected title, The main reason for the additional qualifications was my passion for learning and the thrill of sitting examinations and testing myself. The addition A'Levels and M. Sc. were taken for the challenge and pleasure and were not directly relevant to my career. One important reason for offering private tuition is my love of teaching / learning and I miss my close involvement with the "sciences". I have been accepted as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) ambassador and I have an enhanced DBS check certificate.

Teaching Experience:

Although, I do not have formal teaching qualification and I only started offering private tuition at the beginning of 2015, I am a patient person who has tutored a range of tutees from Common Entrance Exam level to adult learner including CGSE students for both Mathematics and Statistics.

However, my "teaching" roles / experiences go back to the mid 60s helping friends struggling with the Civil Service maths entrance exams and later, post graduation, I taught maths, unpaid, to several children of friends as well as adult friends and colleagues who needed to obtain better qualification. My research positions included (i) formal teaching / lecturing roles at all levels e.g. work experience students, medical / nursing students, visiting medics, junior members of the lab staff as well as registrars and consultants; (ii) presenting the research at local, national and international meetings and (iii) giving guest lectures on B. Sc. and M Sc. courses.

In my research / technical support work, I found particular pleasure explaining to children and parents the purpose and science that underpinned the tests and the analysis and interpretation of the results. This was a unique experience for almost all of them. It gave them and me a lot of pleasure and improved the success problems. In my own time, I helped patients, some who missed a lot of school time due to their problems, with both school work in the sciences and others with projects related to the maths and biology of their respiratory problems. Invariably, they ended up knowing more than their teachers!

Tutoring Approach:

As George Orwell never said "All tutees are not the same but some are more different than others".

I have a variety of approaches, depending on factors such as (i) whether the tutee needs teaching or revision; (ii) the number of lessons the tutee can fit in before the exam; (iii) their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their interests; (iv) whether the tutee is struggling to keep up or a flyer needing to ensure an A* (v) the length of the sessions 45-90 mins and whether it is one or two session a week and (vi) the work they are able to do between sessions.

However, there are aspects that are common to all tutees: before starting the lessons, I am happy to meet for a chat (no charge) to spend as long as necessary clarifying important issue such as (i) which board, level and paper they will be sitting; (ii) the text book they use and which parts of the syllabus have been covered and whether any need revising or explaining and (iii) wherever possible, obtaining suggestions and feedback from their teachers including where marks had been lost in recent exams.

Other aspects of my approach include (i) the tutee attempting appropriate questions / papers from other boards to encourage and foster "thinking outside the box" and, thus, to be prepared for questions that do not fit the usual mode; (ii) e-mailing questions of papers in advance of session to allow adequate time for preparation; (iii) feeding back how sessions have gone and suggestions for changes and being available between session via e-mail; (iv) moving up and down the difficulty ladder depending on the progress; (v) working on exam technique and teaching how to not misinterpret questions, sometimes, badly written; (vi) preparing tutees for difficult topics about to be taught at school, to ensure they get the most out of upcoming lessons; (vii) using examples from everyday life to demonstrate the use and usefulness of maths and statistics outside of the classroom and (viii) building up confidence and aiming to engender a passion and love of the subject and learning, in general.

I make extensive use of marking schemes and examiners reports to discuss how the tutee may have obtained the correct answer but lost marks due to not showing their working or lost time providing irrelevant details and this has been very successful and interesting for the tutees.

Some of my feedback:
(i) As a Year 11 student, Peter has been providing me with extra mathematics tuition during the final months before my GCSE examinations, offering distinct, concise teaching within a relaxed but highly enjoyable and yet professional environment. As a mathematician, Peter has aided me in approaching mathematics from a somewhat more lateral perspective, exploring multiple methods that could be employed to solve a challenging question; a form of thinking that is seldom used within a typical school environment. Peter's abundant, infectious passion for both his tuition and mathematics manifests itself within his unswerving support and guidance during our sessions together, delivering a uniquely engaging teaching environment within which to learn, but most importantly, to enjoy learning mathematics!"

(ii) Parent of a Year 11 school girl: Hello Peter, thank you for your follow up, your emails always have an interesting flair about them. We also enjoyed our meeting and Ebony particularly liked your relaxed approach to the subject, for that reason alone I think she would benefit from being able to ask questions without feeling awkward about what she doesn't understand, most importantly I agree with your 'spades a spade' philosophy in how to interpret the syllabus into the real world.

(iii) Teacher's reply to an e-mail from the mother of a Common Entrance school boy: Thank you for your email. I am pleased Edward has a good tutor and is happy doing extra Maths. The best paper to prepare Edward for our end of year test would be a practice SATs test as they follow a similar format to ours.

(iv) A recent GCSE student, EDEXCEL Higher, via his mother: Peter, I obtained and A in my Stats paper and B in my maths paper and I was told by my teacher that it might be worth remarking, as I was only several marks away from the A Grade)

Consulting the 'breakdown' of my overall Mathematics grade, it appears as though I (thanks to your support) did exceptionally well within the non-calculator paper (the equivalent of a very high A/ very low A* in terms of marks), but it was simply a few questions at the end of the calculator paper (that seemed to baffle everyone, regardless of ability) that partially pushed my overall grade down.

Once again, thank you for all of your support and guidance; I certainly would not have been able to achieve my result within the NON-calculator paper, the paper that I claimed was more intimidating, without our sessions within the Library. You have improved not only my proficiency, but also my confidence in Maths enormously and for that I cannot thank you enough.

(v) Father of a schoolgirl (EDEXCEL Higher): "E" did very well overall and passed all 13 ! In Maths she was one point off a B so of course that's a C. I think we will request a remark for the maths paper. Many thanks again for your help in the past, best wishes.

Personal Description:
I am a Politics and International Relations graduate from the University of Sheffield.

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential. I like to act as a mentor for tutees and encourage them to think about their future. I have vast knowledge of the university admissions process through my previous work experience and am willing to offer guidance with UCAS applications and university admissions in general.

I believe all students are able to achieve the best grades, it all comes down to their own motivation, hard work and of course teaching.

Teaching Experience:

I have both informal and formal tutoring experience. I have tutored pupils up to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. My philosophy of teaching is based on allowing the students to develop their own thinking and use real life examples where possible. I do place emphasis on past papers and perfecting exam techniques as these are essential for the students to achieve the best grades possible.

Personal Description:
Hello. I'm Daniel.
I've been passionate about languages ever since I was a little boy and am still pursuing the quest for knowledge and polyglotism!
My fsvourite and most fluent language is Russian. A language which I feel the most closest to as I have family who are from there. With this passion I would like to pass it to others...to you maybe?

Teaching Experience:

I've had plenty lf teaching experience in and out of the classroom. Mainly I have been involved in one-to-one private tuition as well as mentoring within College.

Tutoring Approach:

I've always had a straight forward approach to teaching languages. It's always important to take your time when studying a language as rushing can make you feel like you know nothing if/when you hit a brick wall. Therefore I like to develop the idea of challenge and reward, to develop the basics of a language, alphabet, pronunciation and grammar but on the other hand develop general knowledge of common words and phrases in order to allow for a level of confidence to grow. No matter how big or small.
