Personal Description:
I am a native Spanish speaker. I am Dr. of Chemistry and I was a professor in the Havana University, Cuba, for 30 years; during that time I was a head of Physical-Chemistry Department for 10 years and Vice Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry for 7 years.

I am living in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear since 2008 and I am teaching Spanish and Chemistry as a tutor in my house.

Teaching Experience:

I am a native Spanish speaker and I was a Chemistry professor for 30 years at the University. I have vast experience teaching and have adapted this experience successfully to teach Spanish as a foreign language in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

I retired from my University in October 2008 to come to the UK with my English husband. I began to teach as a tutor in the UK in 2009. I adapt my lessons to student's needs and interests.

I have experience helping students to prepare themselves for their exams. I have also experience teaching adults who want to study Spanish for personal purposes.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced tutor with first class honours in Modern and Medieval Languages and Literature from Cambridge University. I am also a working actor with six years of professional experience throughout theatre (Shakespeare's Globe, Edinburgh Royal Lyceum, Northern Stage, Southwark Playhouse), television (BBC, ITV, Sky) and radio (Radio 4).
I also have 5 A-Levels at A grade, 10 GCSEs (9 A*s - for my English Literature GCSE I received the top mark in the country - and 1 A).

Teaching Experience:

I have been a committed tutor for a number of years now, dedicated to enabling others. Additionally as an Educational Practitioner with the Globe Theatre, Propeller Theatre Company and as a freelance Workshop Leader, working with 8-18 year olds (and often international students who speak no English!) I have learned first hand the power of facilitating learning in others.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very keen to tailor my tuition to the specific needs of the tutee ie. try to identify subject areas in which they themselves felt under-confident. If a "general" improvement is sought then of course I would structure the sessions around what I felt would be most useful; as a jobbing actor I am able to thoroughly prepare each lesson plan around the needs of the individual, and insodoing, to maximise the efficiency of the time "in the classroom"! I myself was tutored outside of school during my adolescence, so know what a tiresome experience external tuition can sometimes be, especially on top of an increasingly demanding schedule within school, so would be keen to make this experience as harmless, instructive and hopefully fun for the tutee as possible! It is something I am deeply passionate about.

Personal Description:
I am a native Spanish speaker and I am fluent in English too. I am married for 20 years to a British citizen and I am currently living in Banbury with my husband and my two teenage kids.
Most of my adult life, I have lived in an English speaking country but I lived in my home country of Ecuador until I was 25 years old. I did part of my University studies in Ecuador and in the United States as well.
I am currently living and working in the UK and teaching Spanish to all levels it has always been part of my professional life.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years of teaching experience in Ecuador, United States and United Kingdom.
In the past I have taught Spanish and other subjects to Primary level students as well as University level.
I also give casual conversational Spanish lessons to students of all ages.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring depends on the individual needs and interests. I adapt my teaching skills to the needs of my student and I am very flexible in terms of my schedule and teaching techniques. I essentially work on the areas where my students need most help.

Personal Description:
After having completed a qualification in advanced Spanish in Salamanca in Spain, I returned to the UK to complete a degree in Psychology. Following university I went to drama school, and college to learn to teach English as a foreign language. I have taught Spanish and English privately since graduating, and love to see my students improving in their language. I am trained in phonetics, so can help improve in Spanish pronunciation, and with British English or American pronunciation. I am flexible and willing to travel to central and around London, or or have students at home in the Crystal Palace area.

Teaching Experience:

Before completing the CELTA course I taught Spanish privately and in groups at the university of Sheffield. While at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School I taught private Spanish, and also drama/speech preparation to those wishing to get into drama school, then of course during my CELTA course I was constantly teaching English to classes and privately. I have taught private lessons in Spanish and English since then, and am doing so currently. As you can imagine, from living in Spain, a degree in Psychology, a professional acting qualification and teacher training, I've been around the study of people and how they work for a while now. These experiences have made me an empathic, patient and responsive teacher. Learning styles are really important for a teacher and a learner - if we can figure those out, you can become amazing and proficient in whatever you want. Let's have fun, get some work done, and finish proud of what you've achieved.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a modern approach to language teaching and want to make it as fun and interesting as possible. The mixture between a Psychology degree, an acting degree, and a CELTA course mean my approach to teaching is empathic and eclectic. I may use traditional board methods, or role-playing techniques to make sure my students' learning styles are explored and made use of. I would be perfect for any native Spanish speaker as I can relate language points to make comprehension of English clear, and for any English speaker who wants to learn Spanish. As stated above, my knowledge of the International Phonetic Alphabet and its application makes me a good choice for anyone additionally wanting to improve their English, or Spanish pronunciation. I have lived in Spain, so I understand what it's like to live in a foreign country where you don't know the language. I have training in phonetics from both drama school and the CELTA course, so am a good choice for pronunciation practice in an addiction to language improvement.

Personal Description:
Hello,

My name is Ina and I teach languages from home in my spare time and mostly on weekends.

Teaching Experience:

During my studies in high school I had the opportunity to gain a considerable work experience in various well known and reputable companies in my country. I worked as a language tutor and interpreter in two language centres, a translation agency and a real estate company. In addition, I had the opportunity to work as an office administrator in an international association, where I was given the responsibility for the organisation of cultural events and campaigns, recruitment and management of Italian tutors, as well as for communication and assistance to clients and members of the organisation. I currently work in the field of HR, but as teaching is an everlasting passion, I like to develop myself and help students in my spare time.

Tutoring Approach:

I am eager to discover the best approach for each individual and task and work accordingly. I have always applied my creativity and my work experience and people skills have helped develop this further.

Personal Description:
I am currently pursuing PhD in University of Wolverhampton. I finished Masters degree in Molecular biology from the same University with distinction in 2011 and started doing PhD. I am also involved as STEM (Sci, Tech, Engineering and Maths) ambassador which involves interaction with the school students to motivate them to make career in STEM subjects.

Teaching Experience:

I have experiences of teaching students from primary school to University level for few years before I joined University of Wolverhampton for my second masters degree. I have gained experiences of tutoring for more than 4 years in United Kingdom. Presently I am tutoring GCSE science, AS/A level biology and undergraduate/masters level biology.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in understanding students, identifying their needs and delivering effective tuition based on best possible learning techniques as well. My each hour class includes short written and/or oral revision from previous class and moving to a new class based on how well my student has done in the short revision test. In general, I also assess student's progress with a comprehensive written test with past exam questions in every weeks/classes. I am very happy that ALL the students I have tutored have done extremely well.

Personal Description:
I am a hard working individual who has done extremely well in education. I believe that some pupils do face some difficulties and as such, I want to help those who are committed to achieving their maximum potential. I am still studying my A-levels and have a lot of spare time which I want to make the most of. I am very mature for my age and believe in achieving success in everything I do.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for a year now and feel very confident improving pupil's ability and ensuring progress. My ability to explain concepts and ideas is very clear and I always make sure my teaching material suits the needs of my students. I am very committed and the outcome of my students really matters to me.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching involved considering the needs of my students. I assess the needs of my students and see where their weaknesses lie. This way I can focus my time on where it is needed most. I am a very approachable person and my experience working with young pupil allows me to see what they require and how to adapt my teaching style accordingly.

Personal Description:
The social sciences are my expertise. In particular, cinema and art history with critical theory. I have extensive research experience in continental philosophy (Kant, Hegel, Marx, Althusser, Deleuze, Adorno, Badiou, etc.) and am well-versed in a wide-range of media and art theory topics (e.g. modernity, medium specificity, globalisation, avant-gardes, etc.).

I have a decade of experience as a media producer for various web and radio enterprises, and have written professionally for a range of digital publications.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 5 years of experience tutoring across the subjects listed in my profile. And I have also advised successfully on essays, coursework, dissertations and exam preparation from A-level to postgraduate level.

Coursework, essays and dissertation topics I have recently supervised:

- The semiotics of Barthes and Jakobsen
- Base, superstructure and ideological state apparatuses between Marx and Althusser
- The 'wilderness cosmology' of Daoism in classical Chinese Poetry
- Social unrest and China's modernisation project in the cinema of Jia Zhangke
- A comparative political analysis of Halklarin Demokratik Partisi and Ciudadanos
- Jean Baudrillard's concept of Hyperreality and 'The Truman Show'
- Phenomenology and Bad Faith between Edmund Husserl and Jean-Paul Sartre
- Postmodern urbanism and the cinema of Neill Blomkamp
- The Fauvist revolution in modern painting
- The Printing Press and media theory since Elizabeth Eisenstein
- Consumerism, and the media spectacle in urban Chengdu
- The fashion film and the "bad bitch": post-feminist representation in contemporary Hollywood cinema

Do contact me to discuss your specific essay, presentation or dissertation needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer two types of tuition: online (text-based) and in-person (verbal).

Online tuition is the most efficient method for written assignment preparation; superior in my experience than in-person tuition since the student is naturally obliged to articulate concepts, issues and questions directly in the written form that they are required to submit their essays, dissertations, and coursework in. This avoids the extra labour of translating verbal communication to written communication and vice-versa, which slows progress. I conduct online tuition via Skype, which is free to download and use.

In-person tuition is, however, better suited and encouraged for verbal assignments, like presentations and language-speaking practice.

Regardless of type, I always apply a needs-based approach to tuition; allowing my students' needs to dictate pace and intensity. I can, therefore, work closely on particular syllabus material in relation to coursework and exams, or take a broader approach to adult and casual learning.

I offer a full range of help on written work, from "brainstorming", essay or dissertation plans, literature reviews, primary-source gathering, all the way to polishing up the final draft before submission. All written work that I proof-read and supervise will be returned with in-line annotations (using MS Word or LibreOffice's comments and tracked-changes) offering detailed criticisms and suggestions on how to improve anything from grammar, structure, analysis, tone, argument and so forth. I also work fast: written work received before noon can be expected back the same day.

Personal Description:
I am a PhD Candidate at the Glasgow Caledonian University, with Wireless Optical Communication as my area of research. I have earned my Bachelors' and Masters' degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering, and have been a top-performer, academically, all throughout my education. My stronghold is basic as well as advanced Mathematics. I am also well-versed with the core concepts of Electronics and wired/wireless Communication.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students for more than 5 years working part-time whilst I was pursuing my bachelors and masters degree. I have taught young students Maths, Science and English. I have also been catering to the needs of students pursuing higher education, specifically in Electrical and Communications engineering, where I helped them out with core concepts of related subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in active learning, a quality which I try to bestow to my students as well. All students have their own way of understanding concepts, and each takes his/her own time to grasp those concepts. I am very patient with all my students and try to explain things in a manner in which they would easily comprehend. I also encourage my students to take down notes, which I believe is an easier and faster way of learning things.
