Personal Description:
I'm Javier, a native speaker of Spanish from Malaga (Spain), based in Thirsk (Yorkshire). Last year I finished a degree of primary education teaching from the University of Granada (Spain), therefore, I am fully qualified as a Primary and Secondary teacher (Holding QTS). At the moment I am teacher assistant in Cundall Manor School and Carlton Miniott School. I also have a lot of experience with learning difficulties as I have helped my younger brother all his studying life through his dyslexia. I am really passionate about teaching languages, I love my job.

Teaching Experience:

• October 2014 - ongoing

Teaching assistant, in Spanish Lesson in Cundall Manor School. Students from 9 to 16 years old.
• November 2014 - June 2014.

Teaching assistant and main teacher in a Spanish Club in Carlton Miniott School. Students from 7 to 10 years old. (Volunteer)

• February 2014 - June 2014.

• March 2013 - ongoing

Tutor of Spanish. I'm actually tutoring Spanish to adults. One-to-one, groups or online lesson developed with Skype. All levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, patient and tailor my lessons to individual needs because I understand that every student is unique. My aim is to build confidence in speaking and using languages by using a variety of materials and making learning fun. I regularly use games to practice or reinforce vocabulary and grammatical structures. Depending on the student, the lesson can be more structured or more relaxed but I always want to try and make them enjoyable! I felt that this approach got a great response from my private students in the past. At the end of the day, I want the student to be happy!

I am familiar with all the last books of Spanish, like ´´Mira 1,2,3´´, ´´Viva´´, or ´´Studio´´

I love new technologies, I like giving them resources as ´´linguascope´´ which they can use to play and practice contents in their free time ; they can put into practice what we have learned in our lesson.

Personal Description:
I am a recent graduate from a music degree course (BA) at Bristol university, I have been learning the piano from the age of 10 and specialise in performance, theory and Jazz. I have spent my last year in China teaching both Music to children and English to Children and Adults but I have taught piano on a one to one basis for 3 years. My biggest passion in life is music and I feel teaching is an essential outlet for passing on the skills and knowledge I have acquired myself.

Teaching Experience:

3 years piano tutoring,
1 years classroom teaching (music and English).

Tutoring Approach:

focussing on the needs of the individual and adapting to whichever level the student may be at. I am a very patient, often laid back individual as well as encouraging so students seldom feel at disease during my lessons.

Subjects
  • Music
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£15 p.h.)

View Claire's profile or  Quick View

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge graduate with over 25 years experience of teaching IT/Computing at secondary level. I am now semi-retired (since 2009), but was secondary school Head of Department in Information Technology with a reputation for commitment and dedication which has seen several of my pupils achieve the very top results in the country. I am married and have three grown-up children.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 25 years experience teaching ICT/Computing very successfully at secondary level. I have had three pupils achieve "top five" status (ie top five individual pupils, not merely top 5%) in the country at GCSE level - two for ICT and one for BCS. A very large majority of my pupils at GCSE level - in ICT and Business Communication Systems - have achieved grade A or A* - this from pupils of mixed abilities. Similarly a very large majority of my pupils at A-level Computing have gained grade A or B. Of my A-level pupils who have gone on to study Computing and related subjects at university, many have gained first class honours and some have been awarded "best in year" and "best overall" prizes at UCL and Imperial College.

Tutoring Approach:

I have the ability to communicate effectively to pupils of all abilities. I make a point of ensuring that pupils always have the understanding they need, and will keep working at a problem, tackling it in different ways as necessary, until I know that they have grasped it. Having worked in the IT industry before coming to teaching I am a very capable programmer, and so am able to teach this skill from a background of experience which many teachers - at least when I first set out in teaching - did not have. I also have many years of experience of different exam systems, and have been responsible for choosing which examining board's specification to follow for GCSE and A-level, and for choosing teaching and computing resources for use in school. I have greatly enjoyed encouraging the less able pupils, as well as challenging the more able ones, to achieve more than they perhaps felt possible.

Personal Description:
In recent years I have acquired a passion for SQL Server databases and especially the optimization thereof. I love to prove that the impossible can be done. I have been building computer systems and software applications since the age of 15 which later evolved into intelligent corporate solutions. I am always happy and have a very friendly personality and attitude towards life. I also enjoy cycling and I'm a SkyRide Leader I also volunteer with St John Ambulance.

Teaching Experience:

I'm a full time enterprise software developer. I use the following languages on a daily basis: C#, VB.Net, HTML, Javascript, SQL Server, SSIS and SSRS. I have done many training sessions for colleagues at work and also trained people with no experience at all.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a very open and easy going approach to training. I make sure that everything that is questioned is understood not just explained. I spend as much time as required to ensure the student understands. I believe in the following quote, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough" - Albert Einstein, and help students achieve this.

Personal Description:
My name is Andy. I finished my A-Levels in 2011 and am preparing to study German and Russian at The University of Cambridge starting in October. I excelled at languages in school, receiving an A* in German A2 and an A in French AS. Between school and university I studied at the Goethe Institute in Berlin, lived and worked in Germany for over half a year, and am now starting to learn Russian and pusuing my other interests such as computer programming. I have also travelled extensively in France and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have no formal teaching experience (yet!) but learning three foreign languages myself and having studied German in a class actually taught in German, I am very familiar with the aspects of language that students have difficulty with. I am always thinking of better ways to explain things than the way they were explained to me, because every student learns in their own way; this makes me well placed to teach languages, German in particular due to my recent experiences in my gap year.

Tutoring Approach:

Having only recently completed my German GCSE myself (in 2009), I am familiar with the way it is taught in school. I also had lessons from a private tutor myself in German for a year or so during secondary school, so I know the sorts of things that will complement and expand on the material taught in class.

Personal Description:
Hello,

I am an open-minded, friendly tutor who is able to see things from different perspectives. I am not long out of university and very much understand what it's like to be a student and the processes and pressures that you need to go through.

I am passionate about my subjects and have studied and loved them all the way from GCSE to Masters level. I take joy in discussing and explaining them to others and have undertaken a wide range of historical and political studies. These include, but are not limited to:

- English history: 1485-1702
- The British Empire
- UK History: 1900-2013
- UK Politics: 1945-2013
- US History: 1776-2013
- US Politics: 1945-2013
- US Foreign Policy
- Germany: 1900-1945
- (Italian) Renaissance Wars 1494-1559
- General European History
- Middle Eastern History and Politics: 1900-2013
- Russian History and Politics: 1801-2013
- Chinese History: 1900-2013
- The First World War
- The Second World War
- The Cold War
- Intelligence networks
- EU History and Politics
- The current euro zone crisis (I wrote my Masters dissertation partly on this)
- Political Science concepts
- Political Philosophy

I have done a fair amount of travelling and have had some incredible experiences. I am a big fan of European languages and speak some Italian, German and French (as well as a bit of Russian).

Teaching Experience:

I have a considerable amount of experience tutoring both history & politics privately. I am comfortable teaching in person or across Skype.

I also have teaching experience in other areas such as music and sport. I attended Brighton Institute of Modern Music (BIMM) during my gap year to attain a music diploma and have taught guitar ever since. Additionally, I have taken a course to become a Level 1 tennis coach and as a result have worked alongside local tennis coaches to provide drills and technique improvement sessions.

Tutoring Approach:

As someone who has achieved high As in History at GCSE and A-level (A*s were not possible at A-level at this time), a 2:1 with numerous firsts at undergraduate and a merit average during my masters degree, I am fully aware of the means to achieve high grades. I am very friendly and understand that different students have different ambitions. I start any private tutoring with a conversation about what the student wishes to gain from the lessons. I am always careful to make sure the student is given help to the level they require so they can excel at their current qualification.

In the case of exams, my approach is largely syllabus and exam-technique focused. I will make sure the student does gain a comprehensive, confident understanding of the subject matter, but will want to pass on an in-depth knowledge of what the examiner is looking for. This approach is designed so that the student can best maximise their grades. I am able to help with providing a structured and planned approach if the student so desires.

However I am not a tick-box tutor who is not able to see the bigger picture. I am aware that a proper understanding of the subject is not only vital for overall development but also to achieve the necessary level of confidence a student needs to succeed. I only stress the importance of the syllabus and exam-technique because exams are (largely) grade-outcome orientated.

I look forward to tutoring you if you so wish! All the Best, Richard

Personal Description:
Deborah is a trained working actress with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Degree in Drama & Theatre Studies. Also trained by Amanda Redman at her Artists Theatre School at the famous Ealing Film Studios, Deborah attended masterclasses by industry professionals including Ray Winstone, Beth Cordingly, Julianne White, Sylvia Sims etc. Deborah is also trained in singing, voice, accents and characterisation and movement.

Acting since the age of 9, Deborah has been employed across the acting spectrum from Film, TV, Radio and Theatre. She has appeared alongside Placido Domingo at The Royal Opera House, in an opera directed by veteran movie director Franco Zeffirelli, featured in CBBC's award-winning Horrible Histories and is the voice over presenter/narrator for Discovery Channel's 'I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant!'

Deborah is signed to the very prestigious Noel Gay agency, who also represent Stephen Fry, Sir David Frost, Danny Baker, Steve Punt, Jeremy Vine, Krishnan Guru-Murphy and Horrible Histories Laurence Rickard.

For more information regarding Deborah's performance credits, please view her website or IMDB.com.

Teaching Experience:

Deborah has taught a multitude of classes and taken many workshops over the years, including at primary and secondary schools, and also spent a year in Thailand teaching English and Spanish to children at a private secondary school and took private tuition for university students and adults, as well as the Thai Military.

Deborah has worked for Perform (similar to Stagecoach) and The Cat's Grin Theatre Company, and coaches and provides tuition to adults and kids alike. A whole host of specific, targeted tuition is available, be they preparing audition pieces, running through scripts for shows, dissecting Shakespeare to find meaning and understanding or simply development techniques for voice, movement, delivery, confidence and so on. She has also prepared Best Men for their wedding speeches as well as Business Managers for important presenting events and assisted in the development of their delivery and re-work presentations for maximum impact.

Deborah has also worked extensively in the corporate environment in the City (Canary Wharf, Cannon Street et al), in the main working as an HR Recruitment Manager for banking and finance industries (HSBC, Lloyds etc), and so utilises these experiences - client meetings, board-level presentations, business development/sales and interviewing, to assist the more commercial, business-minded student to achieve their goals - be it brushing up on their interview technique and how to sell oneself or making speeches at VIP business events.

Deborah is also a mum to a 3.5 year old boy, who conveys no shyness whatsoever!

Tutoring Approach:

Deborah is warm, approachable and at ease, and whilst maintains a professional outlook, has a strategy that is fun and enjoyable, working with the personality and character of each student. Deborah adapts to the needs and requirements of the pupil and often pin points and weeds out bad habits or hidden talents, gets the student to think about nuances and anomalies they may not have been aware of about themselves to bring out the best potential for the task at hand. She has a knack of finding other skills and abilities in her students that offers more light and marketability to their approach to drama, acting, presenting and so on.

Deborah also leads group classes should you seek a more workshop feel. Fees can be negotiated depending on size of group, age and objective.

Personal Description:
I am a teacher by profession with BSc in Chemistry, Biology and English. I have been working at different educational establishments for more than 20 years. I consider myself as a positive, friendly, hard working and reflective teacher.
I am a native Russian speaker and I originate from the St. Petersburg region that is considered to be the cradle of the classical Russian language.
I have been a resident of the UK since 2006.

Teaching Experience:

Russian - all levels and all ages!
Chemistry - up to A-level.
Biology - GCSE.
• I have more than 14 years of experience of private tuition of Russian to different nationalities.
• I am a teacher of Chemistry and Biology with good practical skills as I have had an experience of working in a laboratory. I was teaching Chemistry and Biology in secondary schools for 9 years.
• I am a teacher of English with experience of teaching the language in primary, secondary and high schools for 10 years.
On-line tutoring is also available.

Tutoring Approach:

All my lessons are individually planned bearing in mind the student's progress. I try to make every lesson interesting, useful and productive.
• For Russian Language lessons I have plenty of up-to-date study resources (a variety of textbooks, workbooks and tests for adults; colourful books and dictionaries with pictures for young children; and study books/workbooks designed for schoolchildren according to their level and interests). I also have collected a lot of interesting books for an enjoyable home reading.
• For Chemistry lessons I set up a target of the lesson and will work hard with a student to achieve it. I will use different learning styles that fit the students the best, identify and work on previous knowledge gaps in order to grow more knowledge and confidence in success through various engaging tasks including practical ones for better understanding of theoretical subject and its application.
I provide all my students with all the necessary materials.

Personal Description:
A computer science graduate and former software engineer that got out of the 'rat-race' in 2001 to develop my then hobby teaching martial arts into a professional career. I now run a very successful Academy teaching martial arts, self protection, and personal development to students of all ages.

Having established the school I had the time to develop my photography to the point when in 2011 I gained a distinction from the Royal Photographic Society, and now I also spend some of my time as a professional photographer too, focussing mainly on teaching others, both individuals and group workshops.

Teaching Experience:

General:
In my former career as a software developer I was also responsible for writing technical documentation and running training courses worldwide. I'm very comfortable with planning, organising and delivering courses up to a very high standard.

Photography:
As a photographer I have been teaching now for about 5 years, I run workshops for all levels, and also individual one-to-one training tailored to students from complete novices up to those approaching Royal Society standard.

Martial Arts:
I'm a high-ranking martial arts instructor (6th degree black belt with 30 years experience) and have been teaching now for well over 20 years, with students of all ages from 5 up to those in their 60's. Alongside my own school I teach courses and seminars to groups of all sizes. I've taught in schools, worked with police and youth groups etc. I often teach private lessons to individuals, both from my own school and those with no prior experience.

Life Coaching:
Having successfully escaped the rat-race to pursue my own goals it's fair to say I've learned a lot about personal development. I've also completed a number of courses and seminars with world-class coaches such as Anthony Robbins. I now share this experience with a number of private clients for personal development and life coaching to help them with motivation, goals and productivity in their own careers.

I have a current DBS (CRB) check and can provide references relating to all aspects of my coaching.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly, informal and always tailored to the specific needs of the individual.

Happy to chat about your individual requirements prior to booking so please get in touch with any questions :-)

If you're looking for photography, business or personal development coaching I'm happy to chat on the phone, skype or obviously to meet in person (I do charge travelling if you're not coming to me).

Self defence coaching obviously needs to be in person, and there are with minimum training requirements to ensure we can cover enough basic skills.

Personal Description:
¡Hola! My name is Estefaní­a and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Madrid. I absolutely adore learning languages and I try to improve them everyday. My motto is that teachers should never stop learning their subjects so that their students can get the cream of the crop in every single lesson.

I would say one of my strongest points is that I speak fluent English so I would not have any problem to switch back to your language if something is not completely understood, and it is also great if you have just started to learn the language!

Teaching Experience:

I hold a BA in English language and literature and I also have a diploma in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language (ELE). Before coming to England, I worked as an English private tutor in Spain for more than 4 years so I have large experience in teaching foreign languages. I have tutored students from all ages, especially children and young adults so I know what teaching approaches and activities can work best depending on the age group.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are carefully designed to address each student's needs so please do not hesitate to let me know what your objectives are! Whether passing your GCSE or being able to chat with locals in your next trip to Spain, I will definitely give my very best to help you achieve your goal.

Subjects
  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
Hi, I'm Pierre, a native English speaking teacher from Canada and I'm available to assist international students or professionals in London who need help improving their English skills to take the IELTS exam or to complete their undergraduate or graduate studies with a focus on:

- Speaking: expressing opinions, seminar skills & giving presentations
- Reading: strategies for IELTS, reading academic literature from your subject area
- Writing: formal, academic style and vocabulary; IELTS task 1 & 2
- Listening: understanding lectures and note-taking
- Confidence: strategies to become more self-assured in the language

I am a very patient, motivating, and caring teacher who can help you (or someone you know) become a confident and successful student in the UK.

Rates: from £17-25 per hour.

Teaching Experience:

EAP & IELTS experience: I have worked on 6 summer pre-sessional EAP programmes, including ones at Imperial College London, University of Manchester, University of Sheffield (2012, 2013), and most recently the University of Warwick (2014). This is in addition to many private classes I have given in London and elsewhere.

I have worked with students from a variety of backgrounds including China, Japan, Korea, the Middle East, Russia, Latin America and Europe, and who study on a large range of academic programmes.

Over 10 years of teaching experience in schools, universities, companies and giving private classes.

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly, patient and flexible, tailored to student's needs. I have my own materials, but often design new materials for students. The student is always my guide in designing a class that is best suited for them.

Personal Description:
I completed my undergraduate studies (English Language and Literature) in Greece, and my Masters studies in London. I have been passionate about the English language since I was very young, and was awarded the Cambridge University Certificate of Proficiency in English at age 15.

Offering private lessons of Greek and EFL in London and online. All ages and levels welcome. Flexible timetable.

Teaching Experience:

8 years of teaching experience in Greece and the UK, privately and in schools, all levels of English and Greek, including English Literature and IELTS preparation. I have worked both with children and adults, especially second generation Greeks and Cypriots.

Tutoring Approach:

Every lesson is tailored to the needs of the student. The use of specific handbooks is determined by each client's desires and needs. Extra material provided by the teacher. To support, encourage and help the student achieve his or her goals has always been my number one objective when teaching.
