Personal Description:
I am a friendly, qualified and experienced tutor who is available for work in the South East London area, or to give online lessons via Skype. I am a UK National and have worked in the UK, South America and Australia with students of many different nationalities, abilities and motivations. I am happy to teach at any age or level and I believe that learning English is valuable and also interesting.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching and tutoring English as a foreign language for over 6 years, both in the UK and abroad. I have experience working with a wide range of ages and levels, from children to business professionals. I am also able to help with preparation for Cambridge exams, IELTS or other examinations. I hold a CELTA qualification as well as a degree and an MA.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the personal attention tutoring allows means that the student and teacher are able to negotiate the needs, aims and pace of classes. It is vital that the tutor is patience, friendly and has a sense of humour, as well as making the student work hard!

Personal Description:
After graduating from Trinity College Oxford with a first class Masters in Engineering I reflected upon the opportunities education had afforded me, the horizons it broadened and the skills it had developed. It was such a valuable gift I decided to teach. I have also had a broad range of other career experience from healthcare to investment banking, this helps me to offer practical advice and guidance to A Level students considering their career.

Teaching Experience:

I've now taught in a variety of schools from an inner-city London school to more recently completing a period as Head of Physics in the Middle East. I now work as a Physics teacher at a top independent school is West London. I have tutored for over seven years, gaining increasing satisfaction from watching young peoples' mind develop and confidence grow.

I am an exam board examiner and moderator, which is a great insight into how to prepare pupils for examinations as well as address their wider educational needs. Education is a crucial part of any persons' life and as such I approach tutoring with both rigour and passion!

In addition to helping student achieve their best grades at GCSE, IGCSE and A Level, I have also been successful in tutoring students for common entrance. I have helped students secure places at Winchester, Westminster and Eton.

Tutoring Approach:

Building self confidence and fostering a love for the subject is my overall aim. To do this I endeavour to establish a close working relationship with each tutee based on trust and their confidence in me to facilitate their exam success as well as address their wider educational needs. Thought process, rather than content, lies at the heart of my ambition to develop self sufficient learners yet I appreciate than content and technique cannot be understated when preparing for exams.

Personal Description:
Hello! I'm a friendly and qualified 1-to-1 tutor with lots of experience, living in South East London.

I've lived and worked in Spain on three separate occasions: I find its culture, history and languages fascinating.

I also teach English as a foreign language, and you couldn't be in a better city to learn English - London is fantastic! Welcome!

Teaching Experience:

I did a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages at Exeter University in 2007, and a CELTA (TEFL) at St Giles College, Brighton in 2005. Since then I've been teaching on and off in the UK and Spain, and completing my Masters degree in Spanish Translation.

I have taught Young Learners of 5+ years, through teenagers and up to adults - the majority of my experience is with teenagers.

My 1-1 students have all passed their GCSE, AS and A2 level exams with B's, A's and A*'s. Moreover, we have built good relationships together and learnt from each other along the way. References can be supplied if you wish.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a creative person, spontaneous yet thoughtful, and I like to tailor my approach on an individual basis. I try to keep my lessons a fair mix of listening, speaking, reading and writing practice though, all with good momentum and interest levels. You tell me what interests you - from One Direction to global warming! - and we'll incorporate it into activities so that you are more engaged with your learning.

My speciality is grammar; helping you overcome any grammar-related fears in foreign languages, to get you confident about your own ability to comprehend how language works and start manipulating it yourself.

I can travel to you, for a slightly higher hourly fee, or you can come to my house. In any case, I look forward to hearing from and working with you!

Personal Description:
I began studying Spanish at the age of 13. Although I had a passion for Spain and it's country since I was 9. I achieved O'level and A'level Spanish and then went on to Wolverhampton University to Study a Diploma in Languages and Business Studies in Spanish and Russian.

Teaching Experience:

I began Spanish tuition over 30 years ago. I now have my own Spanish Tuition Business where I tailor Spanish Tuition courses to suit the individual and at a pace conducive to successful learning. Two years ago I worked with the BBC on their Spanish learning programmes for key stage 3 and 4.

Tutoring Approach:

I cater for visual (learn by seeing), auditory (learn by hearing) and kinesthetic (learn by doing) learners and, in general, I find it beneficial to incorporate all of these learning approaches into a typical Spanish tuition lesson to keep it interesting and engaging.

A teacher should have the ability to identify the needs of a student and to plan and design a course pertinent to that student. A teacher should be able to recognize learning styles and adapt their teaching accordingly in order to deliver and facilitate learning. A teacher needs to assess his or her students in order to ascertain their knowledge gained and give constructive and developmental feedback. Above al, the most important quality is a student must feel free to approach the tutor with confidence and ask any question. It's easy to teach, the test is whether they have learnt. A good sense of humor is essential, no one learns when they are unhappy.

Subjects
  • Spanish
  • Up to 11 years (primary) (£26 p.h.)

Personal Description:
My name's Laetitia (Tish), currently a second year undergraduate at Cambridge University in the faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (studying Russian and Arabic). I'm living in London until October 2013, and am keen to pass on whatever knowledge I can, while making the process as enjoyable as possible! I have experience in a range of subjects which I studied to GCSE and/or A-level, achieving the top grade possible in each.

Teaching Experience:

I've been an assistant at both primary and secondary schools in departments of Art and Russian. I am currently tutoring GCSE maths at Dunraven school with the charity Action Tutoring. I also have younger sisters who I've helped through both GCSEs and A-levels in a number of subjects!

Personal Description:
¡Buenas! Me llamo Patricia y... ¡soy la profesora que estás buscando! Understood that? No? Then you really need my classes! :)

I am a bilingual Spanish and English teacher from Madrid, Spain, confident in my ability and passion to teach.
I am a sociable, dynamic, cheerful, self-confident and highly motivated with a responsible commitment to everything I carry out, especially when duties as an educator are concerned. I am a hard-working professional, enthusiastic about teaching but learning at the same time. I believe I am skilled in the design of challenging and innovative activities that address the diverse interests and needs of students. My goal is to motivate them by ascertaining their inner strengths, abilities and the activities that truly inspire them.

With over 7 years teaching experience, I have been teaching successfully English and Spanish at all levels (from 1 year old babies to adults), exams preparations, business classes, etc. My experience has provided me with an excellent background in the field of teaching, which is my passion, and has enabled me with the skills and methodology required to be a great teacher in every sense.

Through teaching, I get to live my passion, I love working with kids, teenagers or adults, regardless of the kind of student, there is no better feeling than to stimulate a person's social, emotional, physical and academic growth. I love the result of my job. Every day I am determined to help people realise how easy and fulfilling learning can be.

So, it doesn't matter whether you are 10 or 50, if you are looking for business Spanish classes, passing an exam, or just learning in order to go to our wonderful beaches and be able to order a paella at a restaurant! Whatever your needs are I will make sure our classes suit them perfectly! :)

Teaching Experience:

With over 8 years teaching experience, I have been teaching successfully English and Spanish at all levels (from 1 year old babies to adults), exams preparations, business classes, etc. My experience has provided me with an excellent background in the field of teaching, which is my passion, and has enabled me with the skills and methodology required to be a great teacher in every sense.

I had the privilege of being Head of the English Department at SLG Institute of Education and International Euro-American University during 5 years, in charge of all the English-related subjects teaching the language to adults at all levels required (on-site and on-line classes).

Regarding private tuition, I started working as a private teacher in Madrid where I developed my own methodology. After being in several schools devoted to pre-school and primary education, I decided to create something of my own by request of my private students who were increasing very fast. Thus, I created my own company of private teachers, that way I could reach more students as the feedback I had already received was extraordinary. It was an amazing experience in which I was responsible for a team of teachers working according to my method and materials (hired after a recruitment and training process led by myself).
As you can tell, when it comes to private classes I know what I am talking about!

I had the pleasure of becoming part of the academic team in Kids & Us, a very special international school meant for children from 1 to 13 years old. Its methodology is rooted firmly in natural language acquisition. Thanks to this great year being immersed in a kids world, I could learn a lot from them, such as techniques used in order to encourage student learning within this method, ways to establish good rapportŠ Always making certain the kids receive sufficient praise and positive reinforcement which fosters confidence for them to reach their full potential.

I began tutoring in the UK at all levels more than three years ago with great success as well as coordinating Spanish teaching in the school I worked for more than two years, here in Birmingham.

During this time I have been able to get to know the National Curriculum and focus on helping lots of students with the preparation for the A Levels and GCSE exams with proven great results.

I have taught Spanish to students of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds, at all levels. I have learned through my experience the main difficulties British students face when learning Spanish as a Second Language. For this reason, I will always make sure my lessons meet each individual`s learning styles and needs.

My teaching method is rooted firmly in the communicative and task-based approach developing your ability to speak, read, write and understand the language regardless of your level. And believe me, all of this can be great fun!

This year I was looking forward to a new challenge, therefore I decided to start a new personal project, I am opening my own Spanish Language Centre in the heart of Birmingham, The Jewellery Quarter. I really hope to see you all, either in the Language Centre or, if it is more convenient for your location, in my house where I also teach. ¡Nos vemos pronto! :)

Personal Description:
I am currently reading a MA in Piano Performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Prof. Carole Presland. Prior to my studies at the university I did my A-levels at Södra Latins Gymnasium in Stockholm, specializing in music, graduating with the highest mark. Apart from performing solo and with ensemble, I enjoy teaching and have had many piano pupils over the past few years.

Teaching Experience:

During the past few years I have had students on different levels, ranging from complete beginners to quite advanced. What I find most inspiring and rewarding is when the student shows will and engagement in the playing of the piano.

Tutoring Approach:

In my lessons, I strive to achieve a productive yet joyful atmosphere and try to adjust the lessons to every student, so that they get the best out of the coaching sessions. In order to have a clear structure during the lessons, I highly recommend the use of tutor books, mostly written by professors at diverse musical institutions. Naturally my aim is to help my students reach their set goals for their piano playing, regardless of the desired level of proficiency. I teach pupils on every level, believing that it is crucial to establish a correct foundation early on, in order to be able to progress much more in the long run. For those interested in obtaining the ABRSM diplomas in Piano and/or Music Theory, I am qualified to teach them and have taken the examinations myself.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher with a Master's degree in English Literature. I have also recently graduated with a First class Honours degree in Physiotherapy from Salford University.

While studying for the Physiotherapy degree I have undertaken tutoring work online concentrating on study skills assignment support, and proofreading.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience of teaching within a local college and taught students from the age of 16 years old and above. This was primarily focused on Literacy and Study Skills. During this time I also taught students from a range of EU and international students focusing on their grasp of English as a second language. During this time I followed a Government-set curriculum to help students achieve G.C.S.E. equivalent grades to allow them to progress onto Access courses and beyond.

During my last degree I worked with students with learning difficulties including hearing impariments, dyslexia and dyspraxia. This involved notetaking, assignment structure and time management skills. More recently I have worked as a tutor online helping with essay planning and structuring, proof reading and correction of written work for spelling, grammar and paragraph restructuring, time management and organisational skills, referencing and completion of reference lists and proofreading for Further/Higher education students, up to Masters level.

I also have experience of helping international students in terms of organising the study skills, supporting them, and mentoring them on their difficult academic journey. I have also recently assisted with international publishing projects, mainly in the healthcare field

Tutoring Approach:

I take a structured and methodical approach to helping students and believe that if the right foundation is set and appropriate planning implemented, the student will achieve to the best of their ability.

For all assignments work I use a University-based academic writing skills format currently in use at the University of Salford.

I am offering tuition online, via email. Once we have agreed the way forward I will give you an honest appraisal of what services I am able to offer and the time that this is likely to take.


I am happy to send references if required. I have a CRB check from my Physiotherapy degree which will be updated by my current employer.

Please note that I am unable to write your academic assignments for you as this would be unethical.

I hold a First Class Master degree in Humanities with Highest Distintion from "Universita' La Sapienza" di Roma (Laurea Magistrale in Lettere e Filosofia con 110 e Lode) with a specialization in History of the Arts.

In 2000 I attended in London a 1 year Language training course and achieved an Oxford & Cambridge Certificate to teach Italian as a foreign language (OCR TFLA).

Teaching Experience:

In Italy I worked both as a teacher in a Montessorri school and as a tour guide.
In 2001 I started working for the LONDON COLLEGE OF FASHION, in Bond Street, were I taught Italian specificly for Fashion.
From 2004 to 2013 I taught at the UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS LONDON (Holborn) in the folllowing courses:

- BA Elective Italian for Fashion;
- FLAW courses (Foreign Language at Work),
- MFL courses (Modern Foreign Languages)
- ABC Award courses.

During the academic year 2005/2006 I also worked as an External verifier at GOLDSMITH UNIVERSITY, in New Cross, London.

I also have extensive experience as a private teacher, tutoring young students from age 5 to 16 as well as adults.
Through the years I have attended various training courses, including:

- One week International Conference "Italian as a Foreign Language" - UCL (2003)
- "Motivation Techniques and Exam preparation in Italian" - Italian Cultural Institute - London (2004)
- Seminars: "Language & Culture"; "One to one tuitions" - International House, London (2010).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is based on 4 pillars: passion; patience; careful planning; consideration of learner's needs & motivation.

I am extremely passionate about Italy, its culture and its tradition and I am enthusiastic about providing lovers of Italy with new opportunities to discover this incredibly diverse country through its language.

I regard PATIENCE in understanding and respecting students' individual pace, abilities and inclinations as a mile stone for my profession.

Teaching is not something you can improvise.
Being a good foreign language teacher requires familiarity with specific didactic theories and tecniques, as well as long experience.
It also requires thorough, time demanding PLANNING. No matter how many years I have been teaching Italian, I always prepare my SCHEME OF WORK to plan a term, as well as my LESSON PLAN to structure every session.
This also means selecting the best/most engaging teaching MATERIAL and NOT relying (simply) upon a text book.

As a teacher, I always consider the learner's NEEDS as my primary objective.
In particular:
- I listen to my students and calibrate my approach according to their personality;
- I identify and realise the potentials of individuals' abilities;
- I continuously learn from learners;
- I show them how to improve their lesser strenghts.

My classes greatly emphasise speaking & listening skills (tecnically called COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH), and are taught in a friendly, fun and relaxed atmosphere designed to enhance learning.

Personal Description:
I come from China and I am currently a Phd student, from Physics Department in the University of Cambridge. Before coming to Cambridge, I did my master degree about Sustainable Energy Systems in the University of Edinburgh. My undergraduate study is about Telecommunications Engineering and I receive first class degree from the University of Liverpool.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently doing demonstration and supervision about physics for year 1 and year 2 students, who are studying in the University of Cambridge. During my undergraduate study, I used to teach and help high school students in the subjects of maths and physics for the preparation of entrance exams to university. I also have the experience of being a language partner with an American guy for in Chinese for two years.

Tutoring Approach:

I always like to be a friend with my students. My teaching style is encouraging my students to try to solve the problems dependently under my direction. A detailed study plan for each student according to his characteristics will be made. Besides the textbooks, I also prepare the teaching material which is suitable for the student at different stages. Before each tutorial, a small exam will be given to test the student's mastering of the knowledge. Detailed feedback about the student's performance will be reported to parents in time. Close attention about my student will be given to adjust the study plans accordingly.

Personal Description:
Hi,

My name is Kerry and I have a Masters in Translation and Interpreting plus a BA in Modern European Languages (French, Spanish, Italian)

Can show certificates as proof as and when required.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching English as a foreign language (in an Italian High School)
I also have experience teaching GCSE French/Spanish in an English High School.

Tutoring Approach:

I like learning to be fun, otherwise it becomes a chore.
I find that it helps when learning a language if you can relate to what you're learning. For this reason, expect a lot of current affairs, current music, current films etc. to be included in the tutoring.
Obviously, curriculum specific work can be carried out too.

Personal Description:
I am an ex primary teacher who is now retired from teaching in schools, but with a wealth of experience. Currently, I work part time as a Pilates teacher and also offer private tuition. I love working with children and teens and feel I have much to offer your child as a private tutor. Over the years, I have tutored many children and young adults on an individual basis, with excellent results. I am a mother and grandmother, plus have worked in a voluntary capacity with young people in the Guides, Sunday Schools and running youth clubs.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified threshold three Primary School Teacher and have taught as a private tutor for over five years. My experience includes around twenty years of school teaching, mainly as a classroom teacher in years 3 and 4. I also taught throughout school from Reception to Year 5. As a family, we have hosted and taught language students. A recent experience was to coach a re-sit for the Australian Citizenship examination, which my student passed.
Other experience includes volunteering with Adult Literacy projects plus teaching expressive movement/dance and recorders in school clubs.
I worked for a year as a Special Needs Teacher at at local public school, where I taught small groups and individuals with good results. Recently, I volunteered for a year in a primary school, assisiting with Year One and Year Two language work such as phonics and reading.

Tutoring Approach:

We all learn best in a friendly, supportive atmosphere, which I feel I provide. I am creative in my approach to learning, but also am traditional regarding the building bricks, such as times tables, punctuation and grammar.
I would hope to support your child in overcoming obstacles regarding any gaps in their learning, to give encouragement and install confidence. Due to my long teaching experience, I can usually spot concerns quickly, targeting them to make learning time within the hour efficient.
If your family is time pressed, I may be able to support your child with their homework, depending on the work given.
My current availability is in Seaford on Tuesdays between 3.45pm and 6.00pm.
Weekday daytime tuition for adults and home educated children by arrangement in school term times.
