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!

View Simon's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I studied English Literature at Edinburgh University, graduating with a First Class Masters in 1999, before going on to train as an actor at the prestigious London Academy of Dramatic Art (LAMDA) in 2001. Since graduating, I have worked extensively as an actor in theatre, television and radio and since 2007 I have worked very closely with acclaimed theatre company The Factory as an associate producer and director as well as an actor. I have a wide-ranging interest in the arts (from contemporary music through to cinema and the visual arts) as well as an active interest in politics and current affairs. I have worked as a free-lance tutor since 2005 and love not only the obvious flexibility it affords but, far more importantly, the mental, creative and social stimulation it provides both me and, hopefully, those I teach.

Teaching Experience:

In 2005 I registered with a private agency and taught English Literature as a freelance tutor at GCSE level for them that year.
I have wide and extensive experience teaching and creating drama with young people: I have worked on schools and youth projects with Shakespeare's Globe, the National Student Drama Festival and the Carney Academy of Performing Arts as well providing private tuition for drama school entrance and audition technique.
I occasionally work for the University of Westminster as a free-lance actor, working closely with director and academic Helen Eastman.

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that education needs to be grounded in passing on, developing and deepening the love of a subject and that, as such, learning shouldn't be results led. I also believe that people are different and that an approach to tutoring and education should reflect that.

As such I aim to keep engagement and enjoyment at the centre of the process. I encourage pupils to engage with their subject through lateral and creative thinking in the belief that good results follow when a student can enter into a dialogue with the work they are being asked to do and not the other way round.

Personal Description:
Hi,
My name is Julia, I am a qualified and experienced French native teacher. I have a passion for languages. I am fluent in arabic, and can speak Spanish and Italian as well. However, I do think one should only teach a language one masters which is why I only teach French. I am an enthusiastic, fun and reliable person.
I teach all ages, all levels and prepare students for a wide range of examinations such as GCSE, Baccalauréat, A-level, DELF and DALF. I teach children in a fun way and casual learners according to their needs and levels.

Having studied and worked in marketing and B to B in France before, I enjoy very much teaching Business Fench to professionals willing to have better jobs opportunities or just willing to be able to communicate with French companies, customers or colleagues. My experience also includes medical French for doctors/nurses. I travel to companies for the group classes. Please ask for price.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently teaching at the university of Essex where I have been working for 5 years and in a secondary school. In the secondary school, I am in charge of Year 10. Year 11 and Y12 who are taking their GCSE and As level so I have an excellent experience with exams! I taught in secondary schools, in Harwich High-School and Thomas Gainsborough school in Sudbury.
Previously,I worked in a Primary school in South of France for 1 year with 5 to 11 years old children and I taught French in a private school near Colchester for 1 year where I used to teach children in a fun and creative way using role-plays, songs, art and crafts....

I have experience in teaching French to native/bilingual speakers as well so my method will be adapted to your profile

Tutoring Approach:

I think tutoring is particularly interesting and rewarding. My experience with all levels and nationalities is a real strength. I tailor the lessons to your needs, goal and level. We all have different ways of learning and what works for one can be of no help for someone else so I am always looking for the best way to succeed for each of my students. I like using games and fun activites when appropriate with children but also with adults! Learning a language is a challenge, that of course can be boring, but it can be very fun and rewarding as well. I do think everyone can learn a language!

Personal Description:
I was born in France and lived there for 25 years before moving to England where I completed a postgraduate diploma and subsequently worked as a civil servant. This is also when I met my husband.

Following the birth of my children in 2001, 2003 and 2006, I left my demanding job and got involved at first in French groups for pre-school children before starting tutoring students for French GCSE.

As I am helping at my children's primary school, I hold a current CRB check.

Teaching Experience:

After teaching beginners French to young children for a few years, I now specialise in tutoring students at GCSE. I am fully conversant with the GCSE syllabus and it is currently, by choice, my sole area of tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin first by assessing the student's strengths and weaknesses. I have a flexible approach and will base the lessons/exercises around the current topics covered at school (i.e.: environment, education etc) using my own materials. I retain a strong focus on the different exams (oral, writing, listening) required throughout the year for French GCSE, and provide mock exam practice for my students.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 21 year old student studying Biomedical Science in Brighton. I'm passionate about science and am keen to pass on my knowledge of sciences to younger students in order for them to excel. I earned A's in all my sciences and maths at GCSE, and further qualifications at A Level.

Teaching Experience:

I've been able to help my younger siblings (1, 2 and 14 years younger) with their education, mainly with the sciences but other subjects too. My youngest brother is only 6 so it is important to adapt the way of teaching to fit his understanding.

Last year, I spent half the year tutoring at primary school and GCSE level, where all students went up a grade.

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to vary the language you use depending on the level and age of the student you are working with. It is also very important not to discourage the student, as I feel this does not motivate them. It's important to make them feel good about what they're doing and this will encourage them to do well.

Personal Description:
Born in Edinburgh, I was raised in India and then Africa, before returning to the UK. Having lived in London and South East England since then, our family moved to the Scottish Highlands in 2012, primarily to raise our children in a less chaotic and more natural environment. We've had no regrets at all...and our various dogs and cats are similarly happy with the move!

I have always been passionate about English, from the weekly spelling tests and grammar exercises of primary school to the privilege of being taught at A Level by Tolkien's grandson. His vibrant, interactive approach shaped my ongoing learning and fired my imagination. After leaving Edinburgh University with a Masters in English Language and Literature, I went on to take a TEFL qualification and used this when travelling abroad in Turkey and throughout the Caribbean. I am delighted that I continue to work in the area of EAL with overseas students in British schools, and that technology has allowed me to work with individuals in their home countries, via Skype.

My love of English directed my career, working first at the Royal Shakespeare Company before becoming an independent theatre producer in London, and a theatre advertising executive on accounts such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' and Cameron Mackintosh's 'Les Miserables'.

In 2008, my partner and I began the home education of our two children at primary stage. It was both challenging and inspirational and the experiences and knowledge I gained during those years - not purely academic, but also the different ways and methods of learning, the different developmental stages of children, the different learning styles of children - continue to inform my present day tutoring.

While home educating, and with my love of theatre, I founded an educational theatre group, Active Arts, with Margo Gunn, a teacher and director at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. We worked with a wide age range of home educated and mainstream school children, providing workshops on various Shakespeare plays including 'Midsummer Night's Dream', 'The Tempest' and 'Romeo & Juliet'. Workshops were also designed specifically in support of GCSE/IGCSE work. As passionate advocates of Shakespeare, our approach was active and energetic, lifting Shakespeare off the page and introducing his plays, his language and his theatricality in an engaging and tangible manner. I was thrilled to be able to resurrect this work in the Highlands, initially at a local primary school, conducting 4 workshops for Primary 4-Primary 7, resulting in workshop presentations of 'The Tempest' and 'Macbeth'.

Teaching Experience:

In addition to home educating my two children and running Active Arts, my personal and professional lives led me into private tutoring and I have been a private tutor in English Language and Literature since 2009, working alongside children and young people from age 5 upwards, whether on general literacy issues, EAL or focusing specifically on exam work, from SATS, Nationals and GCSEs, through to A Levels, Highers and beyond. Tutees have been those in mainstream state schools, leading UK private schools and home education, following the English and Scottish curriculums, as well as IGCSEs with providers including Cambridge, OOL and Edexcel.

A number of my tutees have challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Tourette's and dyslexia, and the combination of experience, research and support courses have built my knowledge and understanding in these areas.

While I am registered with tutoring agencies, many of my tutees come via personal recommendation and I was delighted that tutees I had worked with in England chose to continue working with me via Skype after our move to Scotland.

Critically, I am PVG checked, and would be happy to provide evidence of this, together with references and qualification documentation.

Tutoring Approach:

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
My approach is not one of 'dip in and out' for an hour, or 'one size fits all', but of creating a relaxed, enjoyable, constructive atmosphere and building a relationship within which the young person's potential can be maximised, against a tailored, individual approach. While texts and challenges might be shared by various tutees, learning styles, atmospheres for learning, methods for learning, will always be different.
As importantly, my approach places great value on the parents, their involvement and their right and need for clear, ongoing and comprehensive communication. As such, I am often in regular contact with both my tutees and their parents, should they require it, outside of tutorials.

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited."
Plutarch

If you're looking for a desk-based tutor, one who does all the talking and expects your child to just sit and listen, I am not the right person for you.

If you're looking for someone to ignite a love of English, to build confidence, to be energetic, to make learning enjoyable, active, off the page, accessible, then, here I am!

MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
For many young people with whom I work, English and everything to do with it - their texts, their homework, punctuation, close reading, writing an essay - is a minefield. Often, what holds them back is a mixture of low confidence, fear of getting it wrong, and simply not having grasped the 'map' of how to 'do it'.

One of my main motivations, is to make English accessible; to take away the fear factor, to provide clear and simple structures, to grasp some key exam techniques, to demystify the exam paper, to clarify what the heck the exam paper is testing them on; to remind tutees that they have, naturally, learned one of the most difficult languages in the world and are fully capable of expressing themselves on paper, under pressure and against time.

However whimsical it may sound, as with many things in life, self-belief and understanding are powerful tools for success.


MAKING ENGLISH ACCESSIBLE
The demand for private tutoring is growing exponentially. As The Telegraph reported in 2012, "more than a quarter of parents use private tutoring to supplement their children's education", spending "£6bn a year in the UK." A double page spread in Femail, February 2015, states research that almost 1 in 4 children are now privately tutored, with pupils at private schools almost twice as likely to have private tutoring than those from state schools. Whatever explanation there is for this rise, cost to parents remains an obvious barrier to its provision.

I am, of course, a 'business', but I also firmly believe that access to tutoring should be made as wide as possible; education is a right and not a privilege. As such, while I have a standard rate for 1-1 tutoring, I am also very happy to discuss your requirements with you and to look at options available, such as small group tutoring where the cost per head can be significantly reduced.

Please do take the opportunity of discussing your requirements with me, rather than potentially losing the opportunity of providing tutorial support for your child.

Personal Description:
Hello! My name is Francis. I am a 28-year-old native English speaker based in Colchester. I hold a Joint Honours English Literature & History degree from York St John University. In 2003 the only A grade I received at GCSE level was in French. Between 2012 and 2014 I studied optional Mandarin and Spanish at university, having rekindled my own interest in, and talent for, language learning.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience teaching English to both children and adults in Wuhan, China, during my time there.

Tutoring Approach:

As I have mentioned, learning foreign languages is both an interest and a talent of mine. However, I am equally interested in teaching my own first language to those who wish to learn it; the English language, both written and spoken, is a rich cultural tapestry going back into ancient times, and a functioning knowledge of it is a worthy addition to anybody's CV. I believe that encouragement and positive reinforcement are the key to success in any endeavour, and accordingly I hope you will find me to be a friendly, positive, encouraging and patient tutor.

I am hoping to work with anyone who wishes to improve their English skills. I can help you improve your grammar, spelling, pronunciation, vocabulary or conversational skills, and I can also teach you some things about British culture and history if you wish; while learning a language is important, it is also necessary to know a certain amount of background about the place where it is spoken. It does not matter if you are not yet fluent - what's most important is that you are willing to learn, and will enjoy doing so. I aim to put the student first, and with this in mind we will discuss and then tackle subject matter appropriate to your age, ability, personal interests, and study aims.

Personal Description:
I'm Nick. I'm a final-year PhD student in Mathematics at Newcastle in Quantum Computing, which is a subject nestled between physics, computer science and maths. I support myself to study by teaching, and by playing guitar and bass in several function and wedding bands in the north east.

In sciences, I was invited in 2003 to train for the International Mathematics Olympiad at the University of Bath. I then studied in Scotland, having been offered a scholarship to study at the University of St Andrews, where I was awarded an undergraduate research fellowship, moving to the University of Glasgow for my master's degree by research, transferring partway through to the PhD programme at Newcastle University. Meanwhile, I've tutored mathematics, chemistry, engineering, physics and economics at over half a dozen top domestic universities, and given guest lectures at dozens more.

In music, I've been the recipient of the Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe award at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the multi-five-star-rated production "Blues!". I've also featured as a recorded artist on national one, and played live across the country in clubs and at festivals, and on BBC Radio One.

Teaching Experience:

I've about 13 years' experience teaching maths, computer science, bioinformatics, chemistry, physics, music theory and practice and several instruments.

I've tutored high-school exams and university entrance exams as well as modules at St Andrews, Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian, York, Bristol and Newcastle. I've also lectured and led small-group tutorials at Newcastle and Glasgow.

I specialise in adult learners and exam preparation, and have an in-depth knowledge of the UCAS process and university admissions, in particular the entrance exams required to study hard sciences at British universities. If you have specific needs, I'm happy to answer any questions.

Tutoring Approach:

I emphasise a whole-education approach to the tutoring process, focusing on fundamentals and encouraging the student to test themselves, using a process of see-do-teach and often going slightly beyond the scope of the prescribed syllabus, as far as the student's curiosity demands. I set exercises every week, and demand a modest, but sustained commitment to improvement from the student outside of their normal coursework - a small amount of discipline in this area has an observable effect on confidence and skill almost immediately.

I supplement my subject-matter expertise with a rounded knowledge of pedagogy and techniques for studying, and experience working with struggling students. Beyond the learning process, I also offer a gamified perspective on examination technique, which is something vital to academic success that many students lack awareness of, even up to an advanced undergraduate level.

Personal Description:
I am currently studying for a Masters Degree at the University of Bedfordshire in Theatre Research having completed my undergraduate in Theatre and Professional Practice. My area of expertise involves the Representation of Trans in Political Image based theatre, as well as adapting text for stage.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught at a few different places during my undergraduate degree at different age ranges including, Lower School students age 5-8, Secondary school students from 12-16 and also A-level students. Following on from this I have also tutored students who are currently in their final year of their undergraduate course.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very simple, I guide my students but it is down to you to lead the way and come up with the answers and the creative ideas yourself. With Theatre and Drama there is no right and wrong, so you can't get things wrong, the important thing is to try out different ideas and see which idea works best for the topic you are dealing with.
