Personal Description:
Hello!
My name is Catherine, I am a 21 years old French girl studying International Relations at London School of Economics (LSE)
I enjoy new challenges, I am really adaptable, open minded and easy going.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring students for the past three years and they ALL are at least on a high 2.1 at University.

I have been working in the Language Centre at Leeds Uni for the past two years.

I have also been tutoring a French Teacher from Leeds University on French Politics, Culture and Literature

In June 2009 I was a Matron in an English boarding school.

Tutoring Approach:

If you already have some interest for French, I will be the one who will help you make your way right to the top

Teaching is something I really love doing. I will be happy to help you improve your grammar, pronunciation, orthography, as well as teaching you about the very rich french culture and Politics. The cultural side is indeed the part I love to speak about (as a lesson or just randomly) because I believe learning a language is not only learning its grammar.

I am specialised on tutoring people who already have some basis of French (From A Level to fluent).

Subjects

Personal Description:
I am a friendly, cheerful person. Students get on well with me. They find me relaxed, patient and committed to their success. I am especially good at building up their confidence and helping them discover that they can in fact understand the subject and succeed in it.

Teaching Experience:

I've been teaching since 1969, both young people and adults; was head of a Secondary School; and have been tutoring privately since 2001.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about helping students get the best from themselves. I approach each one as an individual, as if he or she were my only student. I design my tutoring around a student's specific needs and individual way of learning. I find that my unshakeable trust in their ability and potential allows a student to trust him or herself and gain the confidence to succeed in the subject area in which I am supporting them.

Personal Description:
I am 64 years of age mother of two grown children. My husband teaches at the Metropolitan University. I was born in the German speaking part of Switzerland and so am bi-lingual. I love reading, the theater, films, discussing all sorts of things be they topical, political or pertaining to essays to me done for the German course etc. I have many other things that are of interest to me.

Teaching Experience:

I originally taught English to German speaking people but I have taught at South and North Trafford college, at Alderley Edge School for Girls, Wilmslow High and Knutsford High. I have also taught business people when they were either connected to a Swiss, Austrian or German company. I have tutored pupils from Manchester Grammar and also Altrincham Grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

If the pupil is learning German at his or her school I will be gladly guided by what they do with the German teacher and the course they want to go to improve their skills and also by their parents if they have any instructions of their own.
I absolutely love teaching German and working with young people to make the language more interesting and fun

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified maths teacher, and a highly experienced tutor. And Ex cambridge graduate, after completing a PCSE in maths, I taught in schools in staffordshire and Oxfordshire before moving to exeter an becoming a full time maths tutor, which I have been for the best part of seventeen years, with great success. My specialism is making that extra difference to grades, changings D into B's and C into A's.

Teaching Experience:

I have PGCE (Cert Maths), from Keele university, and have taught in schools in staffordshire and oxford. My main specialism is though teaching in small classes and tailoring what I teach to what a small group actually needs, and one can be done at the one to one level.

Tutoring Approach:

I pride myself on a threefold approach. Firstly maths tutoring is of course all about listening to the pupil and working out both exactly what they needs to learn, and how one should teach it. Secondly based on my my many years of experience I know what tends to slip in class room teaching and how that slip can effect learning elsewhere, allowing me to tackle problems any problems in maths at the root, and so making the entire process much easier. Finally, I place lot of emphasis on how one reads maths questions and tackles actual problems. As a maths teacher one all too frequently encounters pupils whose maths is fine, and it is their reading of question (which often seem that they are written in a language of their own), that is the issue. I am therefore very experience in showing how the maths one knows relates to the question one is actually asked. The importance of this cannot be over emphasised - the difference between an A and a B grade is a difference in ones ability to read the question and find its meaning - and then how one does it under pressure… I am also (in another life) a storyteller,performer and philosopher , and use a lot of storytelling,funny *memorable facts from the history of maths, as very much part on my teaching practice.

Personal Description:
Hi there,

Whether you just need just some extra help for exams or need that A in GCSE's or A-Level I'd love to help you.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching for 5 years in West London. 6 months in Midde East teaching. Experience teaching across KS3, KS4 and KS5.

Tutoring Approach:

From teaching experience I know what the main misconceptions are and use this to base my teaching on. So before we begin a topic I try to tease out any difficulties a student may have and go forward. For me building confidence in maths is one of the main building blocks to helping a student improve substantially.

Personal Description:
***CURRENTLY LIVING IN GERMANY & AVAILABLE FOR ENGLISH CHECKING (BY E-MAIL) ONLY****

I am a professional in my 30s with degrees in English & Italian Literature (BA 2:1, Warwick 2000) and the History of Medicine & Science (MA Merit, Birkbeck College, University of London). I also hold a CELTA qualification in teaching English Language to adults.

Following my masters degree I studied acting at Rose Bruford College and have performed at fringe venues in London and Belfast though tend now to concentrate on writing for the stage. My book of dramatic monologues, "Untold Lives" was published last year and is now available on Amazon. My first novel, "And I Shall Be Healed" was published by Quickbeam Press in January 2014,

Proof-editing: contact for rates.

In addition to teaching I also offer a proof-reading service so for university essays / research proposals / writing projects, please do contact me for rates.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently living and working as a CELTA qualified EFL teacher in Bonn, Germany. In addition I have 9 years private tutoring experience. Much of this was tutoring GCSE students in English Literature with some history and A'Level students.

In addition to this I hold a CELTA qualificatin and have taught English language at summer schools in Italy.

I hold a CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to proof-editing / English checking is to look primarily at the language. For some clients - university students in particular - it is not appropriate to offer an editorial service as this goes against the rules of university submissions. However, where I think a mistake has been made or something is not clearly expressed - and it is not a simple matter of correcting the language - then I will flag it up to the student so they can look at it again.

My main aim with students is to build their confidence and enthusiasm for the subject. To this end I concentrate on teaching the skills they require to achieve the grades they want. My role is not to replace the teaching they get at school but to compliment it so a tutoring session could concentrate on planning an essay the student has been asked to write or going through specific areas the student needs help with. I won't necessarily give homework - unless required - as I feel students have enough to do without me adding to their workload.

In return I expect my students to engage with the sessions. They don't have to like the subject and of course I'm there to help those who don't understand some things or just need a little help or encouragement, but the student must be prepared to be tutored.

Personal Description:
I am a primary school teacher who lives in Brighton. I love living in Sussex and exploring the countryside and the amazing opportunities that there are within the county.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Primary Schools for 10 years now. I have taught years 4,5 and 6 so have an enhanced understanding of the curriculum requirements for this age as well as the expectations for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
I am still in the teaching profession and have an up to date understanding of current educational change.
Last year I was a personal tutor to 4 children all of whom were Year 6 and all of whom achieved Level 4 or above in their Maths SATs paper.
I have just completed a maths specialism course at Brighton university which has really developed my understanding of misconceptions children have in mathematics. I have worked as a maths specialist teacher to support lower attaining groups within school as well.
I am currently completing a Masters in Childrens Literature in order to continue to enhance my understanding in this area.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in identifying what it is that is acting as a barrier to children's learning, each child is an individual so I therefore believe that they will require highly personalised learning experiences in order to help them make progress. So the tutoring experience your child will receive will be highly tailored to their needs.

I also feel strongly that learning should be meaningful and multi-sensory so I ensure that my teaching style allows the children to recognise the applications of their learning in the real world and is represented in as many different styles as possible to ensure that the learning is embedded and meaningful.

Personal Description:
I am a trustworthy, hard-working and conscientious person. I am a quick learner with an exemplary timekeeping and attendance record. I take satisfaction in achieving high standards in any task I undertake, and possess a methodical and organised working approach. Equally capable of working both within a team and on an individual basis, my communication, interpersonal skills and knowledge enable me to interact with colleagues at all levels within the workplace. I love work with children from nursery, preschool and primary school up to stage 1.

Teaching Experience:

One very special working experience achievement was with children y3-4 and y5-6 in a primary school. I was not only teaching Italian Language but I was involved as producer and director of Goldilocks and the three bears in the Italian spoken language which has never been done before as a movie.
Date: from March to April 2005.
Actors were primary school children, which have been selected from the Head Teacher and me. I have trained them every week from March to April 2005 to play on different set. (Drama lessons included). The movie has been filmed in July 2005.
My experience was not only as an Italian Teacher but director and producer and composer for the editing of background music and special audio effects. This is the first time I have made my first movie. (17 minutes footage).
Sponsor for the project and investor was the Italian Consulate of Manchester (U.K.). Very good reward and payment + bonus for the hard work I have done in those months.

Tutoring Approach:

I can teach academic primary school subject up to stage 1 and Italian language for beginners, level 1 and 2 and advanced.

Personal Description:
I'm Marco, a composer and singer currently based in Oxford, UK. I studied composition with Emily Howard at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music for 3 years, and I am currently studying for a BA in Music at The Queen's College, Oxford. While at school I was a composer for the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, having my works performed in various cathedrals and concert halls around the UK and Europe. I am currently studying composition with Professor Robert Saxton at the University of Oxford, and I have received a number of professional commissions, some of which will be performed on BBC Radio 3. I am applying for Masters courses in Composition and I am pursing this field professionally. Recently I won the 2015 Matthew Schellhorn Prize for Sacred Music Composition. As a singer and performer, I have performed with choirs such as the Choir of the Queen's College, Oxford, Mary Magdalen Oxford, Newman Consort, Ensemble 45, Schola Cantorum of Oxford, as well as a variety of chamber ensembles. During my second year of University I was President of the Queen's College Eglesfield Music Society, which saw great successes in public performances that I arranged and in which I performed.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored a number of students in composition and music theory at GCSE and A-Level on a one-to-one basis, and my skills and experience with composition allow me to give particular guidance in this field. I am willing to give one-on-one lessons in composition and music theory, as these are often problematic areas for students throughout school, and my particular skill-set can enable students to achieve at a level that will stand them in good stead for University applications. I have experience tutoring in a number of practical disciplines within music, including Piano, Voice, Guitar and Clarinet. I am willing to coach students up to Grade 8 standard, as I achieved Distinctions in all my Grade 8 exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is combining practical skills with theoretical knowledge of musicianship, in order to provide students with a way of approaching their studies in an industry-focussed manner. My compositional and practical skills have been tested in a number of professional settings, and this kind of insight is exactly the kind of knowledge that students require in order to be successful in their GCSE and A-Level exams. I offer a calm and intuitive approach, which allows students to develop their own ideas, with my guidance that will push them to achieve extremely highly in their public examinations. My extremely positive and creative attitude towards teaching comes from a sense of the true power and beauty that music is capable of achieving, and I intend to pass this inspiration on to my students.

Personal Description:
Approachable, patient and thorough tutor with an outstanding feedback record stretching back to 2009. I am a part-qualified Chartered Accountant, working as a financial statement auditor at a Big Four Accountancy firm in London. My Father was a Mathematics teacher in London for nearly forty years, which is most likely where I get my boundless enthusiasm for these subjects from! I work very hard to make the delivery of subject material as clear, interesting and precise as possible. Rather than just spoon feed a formula, I go back to first principles and explain in simple terms why a particular piece of theory works and where it came from. However, I do not just talk constantly and let the student sit idle. Success in Maths, Accounting and Economics requires problem solving skills, so in order for the sessions to be beneficial I need the student to engage with me and to attempt questions (with my supervision) when they have enough accumulated knowledge to do so. I fully understand how stressful school/university can be and as such the sessions are not intended to be "just another school lesson", or to put vast amounts of pressure on students: the ultimate aim is to develop a strong working rapport whereby the student feels comfortable, secure and can feel a sense of achievement from their work.

*** Feedback testimonials from previous students/parents can be provided as far back as 2009.

*** I teach Sixth Term Examination Papers (STEP I, II and III) and AEA also ***

*** AVAILABLE TO TEACH IN SUMMER HOLIDAYS***

Teaching Experience:

I have eight years worth of private tuition experience teaching Mathematics, Accounting and Economics courses that begin at Key Stage 3 (Years 11-14), through GCSE, AS & A2 level to first and second year university courses in accounting, mathematics and economics. Whilst at university I also volunteered to take part in weekly workshops where students could come and ask questions in a relaxed, informal atmosphere about homework or problems that they simply were unable to make any headway with.

For those of you that are interested in becoming an Actuary or indeed would like some tuition for the exams set by the Institute of Actuaries, I am able to teach the following courses: CT1 - Financial Mathematics, CT3 - Probability and Mathematical Statistics, CT4 - Models, CT7 - Economics.

For those of you that are studying Accounting & Finance, I teach the following courses:

Financial Reporting
Financial Accounting
Taxation
Management/Cost Accounting
Corporate Finance
Business Law

I am well versed with the requirements of the major UK boards for ACA and CA, such as Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS).

I also teach AAT (all Levels), ACCA and CIMA courses.

The above list is not exhaustive so if require assistance with another course please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

Tutoring Approach:

During the first session I present a short questionnaire that I ask the student to fill in (honestly!) in order for me to assess their individual learning styles (right brain vs. left brain, use of visual stimuli etc), so that I can respond best to their needs. Every lesson will begin with an outline of the subject content and the intended aims. The key to success in maths and economics is to do it! With that in mind, the vast majority of lessons will entail methodically working through problems and exam style questions to ensure my students are as well prepared for their modules as possible. However, exam success isn't the only concern; I want to nurture and develop a genuine love for Mathematics and Economics; one that will encourage the students to read widely and explore new avenues of thought.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified experienced maths teacher with a BSc in Mathematics. I have experience in intervention and one to one tutoring within a high school setting, delivering the intervention sessions in one high school and taking the responsibility of intervention coordinator in another. I have also prepared small groups of pupils for Further/Additional Maths at GCSE Level. I have been very successful in improving under achieving students to achieve their target grade both as a tutor and teacher. For example I took over a GCSE class which was a bottom set who I started teaching at the start of year 11. At that point the highest grade in the class was a grade F. By the end of the year everyone improved significantly and several gained a grade C. As a father I know how important our children achieving their best is to all parents.

Teaching Experience:

During my teaching career I have taught in 4 different high schools including schools with a sixth form. My first post was in a Lancashire High school where I was responsible for the intervention in Mathematics which involves helping small groups of pupils who are below target in Mathematics. My last GCSE group all achieved grade A*-C. (set 2 of 6)

My next post was in a Sefton High School and sixth form where I was responsible for organising and running intervention. My GCSE group (set 5/bottom set) all achieved at least three levels of progress from their starting point and 3 pupils achieved a grade C (This was above their target grade).

In my final year I was teaching 3 GCSE classes. A higher group in which all achieved B-A* as well as a vocational group and a bottom set where some pupils achieved grade C and others made their expected progress.

I have tutored both in school and privately with a lot of success. One example was a private student who came to me having achieved a grade F at the end of year 10. A year later she achieved a C in her GCSE exam. Successes from the exam results in 2016 include an A level student moving from a E to a B. A GCSE student moving from an F to a C who I started tutoring in February. Another GCSE pupil moving from a C to an A.

I am fully up to date with the changes in exams at GCSE Level for the new 9-1 GCSE`s and the changes in the sats for Primary school pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

I want all my students to be able to develop their understanding of mathematics rather than just learning how to answer a question. I try to work with their class teacher in following the methods they are being taught at school but also realise that different methods may be appropriate if they are struggling. I set homework weekly which is assessed at the start each session unless it is a longer piece or exam paper which is taken away and marked and brought back to the next session. I plan topics which are linked to previous learning in order to develop the bigger picture of mathematics but have excellent subject knowledge so I'm able to change my plan if the student wishes to look at another area that might have arisen as a problem in school/college. I also like my students to be proactive and get in touch if they wish to cover a particular topic which wasn't mentioned at the end of the previous session. I have a good relationship with all the people I tutor, they are at ease to ask questions and praise is central to help raise confidence.

Price stated is for pupils based within 5 miles by road of PR7 4.

For pupils who live between 5-8 miles from PR7 4 an addition £5 per session is payable.

For pupils living 8-12 miles an addition £10 per session is payable.
