Personal Description:
I am a forty-two year old male, who has lived and worked all over the world. I only teach English as a Foreign Language, and I will only teach adults (16+). I live in Southampton, and am prepared to travel if required. I am available most of the time, including weekends if necessary.
My interests include football and sailing.

Teaching Experience:

I have previously taught adult students as follows;
1. In Prague (Czech Republic), mostly at beginner and intermediate level.
2. Fijian adults at intermediate and advanced level.
3. Polish adults at all levels.
4. Arabic adults at intermediate level.
I do not teach any other subjects so EFL is my speciality.

Tutoring Approach:

I have used most of the popular workbooks before, but I am happy to teach to a syllabus of the student's choice. I try to make all lessons as contemporary and enjoyable as possible (I have even taught in a pub), but am happy to adapt to the student's needs as necessary.

I am happy to offer significant discounts to the advertised rates for block bookings paid in advance.

Personal Description:
I am a part qualified actuary working for a professional financial services firm in London. I live in Southampton with my family.

I studied Mathematics with Actuarial Studies at University of Southampton and obtained a 1st Class degree. I have gone on to pursue the actuarial professional qualification which I am writing exams for. My passion is teaching which I have done in varying capacities over the years.

Teaching Experience:

I did a placement at a high school which enabled me to gain valuable teaching experience and from that time I have engaged in one-on-one tutoring to help Maths GCSE and A Level students increase their competence in tackling the subject.

From the time I was in high school, Mathematics was my favourite subject and I have endeavoured to learn as much of it as I could, hence my career path. I have always offered a helping hand to others, teaching them what I had learnt in order to increase their understanding of concepts and theories.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to first understand where the student stands in their competency. I also aim to understand the relationship and attitude the student has towards Mathematics. This will help to map out a development program for them going forward so that they are built up in confidence and ability.

Having previously struggled with Mathematics but managed to turn it into one of my strong points, I have the personal experience to empathise with anyone who may find it difficult and I can offer a solution that will help upskill any student.

Personal Description:
Hello,

My name is Mayan and I am a 3rd year Politics and International Relations undergraduate. I am a determined and ambitious student who is looking to tutor a young person who is struggling with their political studies.

I have always had a natural interest in national and international politics; it is ever-changing and I like to make sure I am up to date with what is happening in the world as it affects every single person!

Teaching Experience:

I have had teaching experience with children between the ages of 5 - 12 years teaching English and Maths. In 2012, I ran a debating society in my school where I coached 13-18 year olds debating and public speaking skills.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly, I like to meet my student and understand what their course is all about as I understand from personal experience that depending on which board you are with, your exams and assignments will vary. Following this it is important for me to find out what exactly the student is struggling with; is it learning the content or exam study skills? Once we have established this, I like to take a structured approach to tutoring where both the student and I will agree on what we would like to achieve each week - whether it is how to make a great essay or learning a new political topic!

I like to motivate my students to love what they are studying and not to just do it for the sake of it. I hope that I can help you with not only the political content but in really enjoying the subject!

Where I teach: University of Southampton. This is because I truly believe that it is important to be in a quiet and focused room in a study environment! This is useful for both myself and the student to ensure the best grades.

I am very flexible so if there is anything that you require as a student or parent, please let me know!

Personal Description:
I'm twenty three and have lived, worked and studied in the south Hampshire area my whole life. I love the area and intend on staying here for the foreseeable future! I'm currently studying Graduate Entry Medicine at the University of Southampton, having completed my BSc. (Hons) Human Physiology at the University of Portsmouth in 2015. I attended Hamble Community Sports College, achieving 14 GCSEs at grade A and A* - top of my year - and Peter Symonds College, studying Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Critical Thinking and General Studies. My Mathematics and Statistics GCSE (taken a year early) were the highest the school had ever achieved, both gaining an A* (99.5% and 100% respectively).

Teaching Experience:

During my GCSE preparation period, and during the exam time also, I tutored several students in my year and below for Mathematics and Statistics, alongside their current teaching at school. I have also, however, given tuition to other adults, most of whom were taking their Mathematics GCSE as an extra qualification in order to get a promotion at work. I would be very willing to do any type of Key Stage 2, 3 or GCSE Mathematics or Statistics teaching for a person of any age.
I have now taught many students, ranging from ages 5 - adult, and all of those which have sat exams have at least achieved the grades they were after. I have helped students to reach required grades, supplementing class teaching, catching up on missed lessons, improving old Maths skills and more recently as a standalone teacher of the entire GCSE syllabus. I have also helped individuals gain much needed confidence in their own skills and I have a lot of experience in helping students to believe in themselves!

Tutoring Approach:

Mathematics being a specific passion of mine, I encourage students to apply their own knowledge to the question, before adding any new information. By showing proof of how a calculation or question works, I believe that anyone can grasp a method if they are shown the reason behind its usage. I believe I can offer an alternative to the class driven method of teaching, and allow students to gain aptitude in spotting the need for a calculation just by reading the question, and hopefully then on to creating their own calculations and solutions! I also aim to make a heavy question of 5 or 6 marks appear to be just a group of smaller questions, making each mark easier to get. I've been teaching for four years now and I've seen many students suffer from a lack of confidence in their own ability, and I always ensure that not only does the person have core, and advanced knowledge, but that they have confidence in the fact that anything can be achieved!

Personal Description:
Hi! My name is Jay.

I'm 24. Earlier this year I returned from a year teaching in Japan, I am originally from Bedford.

I am currently studying for a masters of research in 'Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine' at the University of Southampton.

I also hold an undergraduate degree in 'Human Physiology' from the University of Liverpool.

I have been invested in the scientific field since I was very young and I have found that my passion for the field comes across in my tutoring.

Teaching Experience:

My first experience of tutoring was a 6-month period volunteering in a middle school in Bedford town (2014)

I then moved to Japan to teach English as a second language in Mimasaka city where I learnt a great deal about teaching in classes of 3 to 43 students.

Upon returning to England earlier this year, I was employed as a student support in a college in Bedford working with disadvantaged and disabled students both 1 on 1 and in small groups.

Before beginning University, I was a team leader with the National Citizenship Service where I helped a group of 15 students complete a dynamic course including everything from adventure activities to carrying out a fundraising project for charity.

I will soon begin volunteering with a mentoring/tutoring charity in Southampton for disadvantaged students.

I have a wide range of experiences working with students from different backgrounds inside and out of the education system. I have attained high qualifications in every subject I tutor and I believe I can both discuss and demonstrate the merits of hard work and education with students who require motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

After much experience in various areas of the education sector, I strongly believe that learning through discussion and questioning is the most effective way to understand the fundamentals of science and improve in this field. Developing a deep interest in science this way can greatly improve a student's confidence and understanding. I can also provide help in exam theory to ensure students won't lose marks through misunderstandings in what is required when answering modern day exam questions.

However, I understand that every student has their own needs and I will strive to tailor each session to the individual.

Personal Description:
In the ten years I've studied bass I've gained a B-Tec National Diploma in music and music tech from Tauntons College and a Higher Diploma in music performance from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford where I am also studying for a Degree in music performance. This education fuels my passion for my instrument, and with such a huge variety of influences to choose from I couldn't see myself doing anything else.

Teaching Experience:

As a new tutor i have limited teaching experience however; during the course of my studies for my degree i have on many occasions had the opportunity to take on the role of the musical director of a performance. As a musical director i have had to think of different ways of explaining a task to my peers and have gained relevant teaching experience in the process.

Tutoring Approach:

I have found the best way to tech someone a new subject is to try and relate the subject to something the student has an understanding of or an interest in.

I usually apply pedagogical techniques and dynamic activities according to the student's skills, I also, respect and value the effort my students do to learn and to get good grades. I can say that I have always been enthusiastic about teaching, so it encourages me to study modern languages in a Pedagogical University.

Personal Description:
Do you wish to master Mandarin Chinese the quickest possible? As a highly qualified, professional and enthusiastic Mandarin instructor, I'll show you how!

I have excellent teaching skills demonstrated by 10 years of teaching experience as a university English language lecturer and Chinese language instructor.

Back in China, I worked as a lecturer in English as a second language and was awarded as Excellent Teacher in School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Xi'an University of Technology.

I started tutoring English speakers in Chinese in the UK in 2010. I teach Chinese in a professional, effective and innovative way so that mastering the target language will be full of fun, stimulation and excitement, and more importantly, achieving the learners' objectives in the shortest time possible.

I offer face to face or/and on-line tuition service, including -
• 1-hour FREE trial session
• Free 24/7 out-of-class support, advice and guidance available
• Designing a tailor-made strategic teaching plan to maximize the efficacy of learning

Having been working in UK-based multi-cultural companies during 2012-2015 as Business Development manager, consultant, translator and interpreter, I'm also able to help business people with Business Mandarin, and especially the relevant business affairs and knowledge in China.

I drive so would be happy to physically visit the areas of Southampton, Winchester, Portsmouth, Reading, Ringwood and New Forest, etc.

Teaching Experience:

Having been a university English language lecturer and Mandarin instructor makes me a versatile educator. I've taken the opportunity to instruct a wide variety of students from various backgrounds and with varied learning purposes.

Here are a few testimonials (one is abridged) from my tutees -

" If it wasn't for Ning and her constant support and patience, I would have probably given up on learning Chinese at university!
 
I have gone from not being able to string a Chinese sentence together to achieving a 2:1 on my final exam, all in the space of 6 months.
 
Ning goes above and beyond to ensure that learning material is tailored to individual needs of the student, suiting all abilities. Her supporting and encouraging nature makes learning much more enjoyable and I highly recommend her to anyone. "
 
- Aishia (18 years)


'' I have been studying mandarin with Ning for the past year. I am an advanced mandarin speaker having studied since 2007 - both in China and in the UK.
 
I rate Ning's teaching extremely highly and would be delighted to recommend her to other fellow students ...

... I've had approximately 10 mandarin tutors since I started learning mandarin and I rank Ning as one of the very best. If you're looking to learn about the Chinese language and culture, then you couldn't go far wrong.  "
 
- Eleanor


" Holding the attention of my eight-year-old son for any length of time is a feat of Herculean proportion.
 
How Ning manages to keep him focused for an hour is astonishing and highlights her remarkable gift for teaching. 
 
The lessons strike the perfect balance between being factual and fun, meaning my son happily sits down for his weekly session. I would highly recommend Ning."
​
- Lucia (Anthony's Mum)


''Ning has been brilliant at taking my daughter through GCSE Mandarin.
 
She made a careful plan to take my daughter through the syllabus, taught her really well and thoroughly, and is very supportive and encouraging. I could trust her completely.
 
My daughter so much enjoyed learning Mandarin with Ning that she has decided to continue lessons with her to take a higher qualification in Mandarin. "
​
- Kate (Delilah's Mum)


''Ning is a brilliant teacher!
​
If you get something wrong, she will explain it again. And she is very patient.
​
I have so much fun during Ning's lessons, I love the flash cards and Ning helps me make my own sentences in Chinese.
​
She emails me homework every week, this helps me a lot. Because of it, and the fun way she teaches me, is why I am so good at it! "
​
- Joe (9 years)


" From a parent's point of view, our son looks forward to his lessons with Ning and is totally engaged during them.

Ning has given him the confidence to communicate with Chinese speakers, when the opportunity arises.

We are so proud of him, due to the fact that in a short period of time, Joe has been able to hold brief conversations in Chinese.''


- Brennan & Beatriz (Joe's Parents)

Tutoring Approach:

I'm able to utilise my analytical mind, across-the-board knowledge and understanding in Chinese language, extensive teaching skills and experience to implement comprehensive, systematic and constructive teaching approaches to effectively support students' needs, integrate multi-cultural teaching units, create and design curriculum and learning materials, make accurate assessments and offer positive encouragement and keep students fully focused and motivated; as a consequence of this, the leaners' targets can be obtained in good time.

Tailor-made lessons provided for all age groups: beginners, intermediate and advanced learners. My tuition involves traditional classroom and on-line activities, assisting and supporting students in their academic, business purposes or personal interest -
• Academic Mandarin (GCSE, A Level and HSK)
• Universal Mandarin
• Business Mandarin
• Mandarin for Kids
• Tourism Mandarin
• Survival Mandarin
• Speaking and listening in Mandarin
• Reading and writing in Mandarin
• Hanzi writing
• Chinese business culture and etiquette
• Field trip and workshop (Chinese cuisine, cooking, media, travel, music, film, Beijing opera, tea culture, folk art, business negotiation and shopping & eating out etc.)

Here is a generic picture how I execute tuition -
• Developing course syllabus
• Conducting pre-assessments if necessary and identifying the educational needs
• Designing, developing and implementing teaching strategies and plans
• Compiling tailor-made learning material and using Chinese text-books as required
• Using a wide range of interactive teaching methods and techniques to enhance learning achievement
• Creating worksheets and exercises
• Monitoring and commenting on students' progress on a regular basis and obtaining their feedback

One of the effective ways I assist my students is by developing and presenting thorough and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate all learning styles. I research, locate and incorporate a variety of resources to accommodate students' needs and I integrate literature, workshop, classroom activities and technology to ensure the students are able to comprehend and retain the concepts of the target language.

Also working as a teacher in both Chinese and English has given me a deep insight into differences between the languages, esp. in the features of word uses and structures, hence it allows me to explain explicitly similarities and differences of the mother tongue and target language to the learners so as to gain the best results of learning.

Personal Description:

Personal Description:
I am a second year university Student in Southampton, I study Journalism and achieved a first in the first year of university. I want to pass on knowledge I have learnt in a number of work places, including Reuters in Canary Warf. I specialise in Journalism, History, Politics and in particular English Language.

Teaching Experience:

Have taught for a brief time in Primary Schools, however the main part of my teaching is now peer to peer making it less intimidating for a student to ask questions they may have on a topic.

In my secondary school I was a mentor for 11-17 year olds providing help and support for any school related needs they may have had.

I find nothing more fulfilling that helping a fellow student and watching them learn and understand the problem they once had trouble with.

Tutoring Approach:

Students will be able to voice questions they may have, and not feel embarrassed as I am a student myself. There will be homework involved, and I will target the area of the subject that the student is struggling with.

The fact I am still a student is important as I can bridge the gap between teacher and student. The most common problem students come to me with is that they feel embarrassed to ask questions to their school teacher.

I do not try and recite words from a textbook, but ask the students to learn from my experiences and ultimately do the best they can do.

Personal Description:
A qualified maths teacher, DBS checked, with a first class honours degree. I've worked successfully with over 250 students.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students at KS3, GCSE and A level. This has included 1 to 1 support, past paper practice and revisiting of skills and topics to build confidence and motivation as students work towards their exams.

I have a first class maths degree from the Open University and a PGCE in teaching secondary mathematics from the University of Southampton (2016) for which I was awarded the Dean's List.

I currently tutor maths full time at GCSE, A level and KS3.

Tutoring Approach:

I am approachable, developing positive working relationships with both students and parents and I offer tutoring bespoke to your needs. I can teach or recap topics from KS3 through to A level and/or provide focused exam preparation.

My tutoring fully addresses the challenges presented by the style of question and content of the 9-1 GCSE exam that starts in 2017.

The tutoring I offer will unlock your potential to get the best grade possible in the available time. As well as maths content, additional skills addressed include exam technique, timing and confidence.

Personal Description:
I have a BSc (First Class Honours) in Psychology from Brunel University (2007), and a PhD in Psychology from the University of Cambridge (2011). I am currently a Psychology lecturer at the University of Bath. My research is mainly in social, health and cognitive psychology, but I also teach research methods (both quantitative and qualitative methodologies), statistics and SPSS, as well as effective academic writing, including dissertations and research projects. In addition, I have sufficient competence in personality (i.e., individual differences) and clinical psychology to be able to teach these at undergraduate level.

More specifically, my research interests are:

- The attitude-behaviour relationship
- Behavioural interventions
- Motivation, cognition, and emotion
- Dual-process models of cognition
- Cognitive dissonance, self-affirmation, and information processing
- Emotional intelligence
- Mindfulness meditation and its cognitive and emotional benefits
- Meta-cognition and self-knowledge
- Persuasion and social influence
- Intelligence and problem-solving
- Body language and communication
- Personal development

Teaching Experience:

I taught psychology to undergraduates at the University of Cambridge from 2008-2011. In addition, I have experience of supervising undergraduates from other universities, including Anglia Ruskin and King's College London. I also supervise BSc and MSc students in their undergraduate research projects, and act as a dissertation supervisor in my department.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to use an interactive approach that encourages active involvement of the tutee. My main goal during tuition sessions is to stimulate an interest in the subject and facilitate independent and critical thinking. This, I believe, allows the tutee to become an independent thinker and to enjoy the learning process, which is rewarding for both parties.

Subjects
  • Psychology
  • A-Level or Highers (£40 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am 30 years old from the Old Trafford/ Stretford area of Manchester, I graduated in Law from Lancaster university in 2008, I now work in Conveyancing/Property law having previously worked in the Banking/financial field. I am an individual who is quite fond of reading, debating and discovering new things. I would say I am quite lively, not too difficult to get on with, very ambitious but also with an equal dash of a patience for I am a patient individual. Although I am admittedly not fantastic at sports I do play badminton and football from time to time I can play a range of sports but those tend to be the main two. I am a massive fan of education and self development. The colossal impact both areas can have upon our lives is incalculable, as such I tend to be never too far away from reading a book or learning something new to further myself.

Teaching Experience:

I have mainly gained a lot of my early teaching experience through tutoring younger siblings and assisting the junior year students either at college or University with areas which they either required either extra help in or further knowledge. I have further developed this over the last four years and I am confident that the contribution which I have made to those who I have helped has been substantial in helping them to progress onwards to the next stage and beyond. As such I would hope to extend this towards any student who desires to take me on board and to progress until they are ready for the task at hand.

As I have progressed over the years, teaching various and numerous tutees, my own personal & teaching experience has grown exponentially year on year. As such I believe I can approach any teaching scenario and offer the required angle to ensure success as a result of previous experience yet I still take each student on a case by case/ individual basis rather than a blanket approach.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin my approach with an informal but analytical conversation with the student, parent or both in order to assess strengths and areas where we can develop a plan of action or just to establish face to face what it is we will be doing in the time we have. I will aim to take each stage step by step until both you and I are satisfied that we are confident in understanding and explaining coherently the relevant information. I will be professional but understanding as patience dictates, most importantly any work set during the session will be wholly relevant, comprehensible and creative in order to match your needs.

I do incorporate digital media, an interactive projector for lessons and presentations or a whiteboard depending on the subject if a visual element is required in teaching. Presentations can be sent via email at any time as well.


*For any LPC students I can also tutor and instruct in Solicitors accounts too.
