Personal Description:
I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature with QTS and a post-degree Diploma in Teaching Foreign languages and a Masters in Sciences of Education - Educacional ICT.

Teaching Experience:

I have 14 years experience of teaching MFL at high school level and also to adults.
I teach Spanish, Portuguese, French and Latin. I taught at the University of California Santa Barbara as a Lecturer before I moved to UK, where my husband is from. I also worked for the Extremadura Government in Spain as a teacher and as a translator. I am now teaching in London, Spanish, French and Portuguese syllabuses and I have been involved in intensive exam preparation for students of GCSE and A levels. I also revise plans and advise PGCE students in Spanish and Portuguese.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to think of myself as a highly motivated and dedicated teacher of MFL that fosters high student self-expectation. This can be done by building commitment to quality education and developing strong bonds with students, parents and Faculty. For example, I believe in employing a variety of classroom techniques to raise achievement: I have recently developed a bank of resources for Spanish and French teaching to accommodate different learning styles. Aside from good teaching, assessing students' progress is important. For example target setting and monitoring is an important method in ensuring that students reach their potential. Finally, create motivating learning environments that capture the imagination of the students, using for example students performance charts with points to show each student's progress in each field and this can be used to monitor a student's acquisition of the target language.

Amanda also has numerous theatre and radio plays to her credits and has also been involved in Corporate work with Greater Manchester Police Training and Employment Services. Amanda holds a Full Enhanced CRB Disclosure and is covered for Public Liability through British Actors Equity.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching drama students from the of age 6 - 60 since 1999. With some of them moving on to be successful actors themselves. However, I do understand that not all students want to be actors and approach each individuals needs accordingly.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that drama isn't just about 'acting' but also provides an outlet for self expression, it develops imagination and artistic awareness; it increases social and mental freedom, fluency of speech, self respect, self confidence and above all... it's FUN!

Drama gives students the opportunity to learn how to co-operate with others, aids orderly thinking and the ability to organise. The benefits do not only accrue through students participating actively in dramatic activity, they also learn through observing others.

I will provide what we hope you will see as the perfect balance of education, play, and stimulation. I run to a carefully planned curriculum paying equal attention to ALL my student's needs in our group sessions. I am also committed to a two way communication process with parents to ensure that we have total understanding and support.

I use practical explorations on how to make, perform and respond to drama. Our workshops encourage students with:

Confidence
Self Expression
Team Working Skills
Speaking and Listening
Emotional Intelligence
Community Involvement
Development of Practical, Creative and Intellectual Skills
Use The Student's Own Work As A Stimulus
Understand The Importance Of The Process
Cross Curricular Links With Literacy

Personal Description:
My name is Ed. I recently graduated from Durham University with 1st class honours in Maths and Physics. I achieved straight A result with six A-levels including Maths, Further Maths, German, Physics, Chemistry and Chinese.

I am an experienced tutor and have previously tutored students from a variety of schools and institutions. I am very patient and my primary focus is to help you achieve your goals and objectives.

Whilst currently working in the finance industry, I also work in my spare time as a private tutor two top private tutoring companies in central London.

I am flexible and can travel to you. I am available in the evenings on weekdays and any time on the weekends.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I can provide you references upon request.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor at Bonas Macfarlane, London, July 2010 - Present
I tutor a variety of subjects at different levels from primary schools to A-levels. I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Chinese. I also offer service on giving academic advice as well as interview techniques for entering into top schools and universities in the UK.

Private Tutor at Bright Young Things, London, September 2012 - Present
Bright Young Things is the second largest tutoring agency after Bonas Macfarlane whom I also work for. With Bright Young Things my focus had been Maths at A-level and GCSE.

University Marker, Department of Mathematics, Durham University, October 2009 - May 2010
I mentored second year Maths undergraduates at Durham University. I have learned to work through the arguments and thought processes of others and give constructive feedback.

Sixth Form Tutor, Framwellgate Sixth Form College, Durham, October 2006 - June 2009
I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years. I helped all of my tutees achieve more than what they were initially targeting to achieve. I also learned to prepare teaching materials and adopt various teaching methods.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is to go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students to work on more specific and challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are constantly motivated and encouraged in order to self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

I also strive to make lessons as interactive as I can. I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

It is a pleasure for me to offer you the best of my competence and experience in the field of teaching languages.
My major strengths are: getting right to transmit my knowledge to the students, organization to elaborate the lesson plans to achieve the best class activities, patient with those pupils that have some difficulties in the learning of languages. 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.
I have been living in Birmingham since July 2010, and my Entry Clearance visa entitles me to work immediately as well as my National Insurance Card. In the same way I hold the UK NARIC National Recognition of my degree as British Bachelor Degree Standard and the GCSE (grades A-C) Credit Standard on a subject for subject basis.

Personal Description:
A creative Qualified Languages Teacher and Proofreader, with a variegated working experience in different contexts and multicultural environments.

More than 11 years of study and work experience as a languages teacher and multilingual translator/interpreter/proofreader (Italian, Spanish, French, English and Romanian).

As a teacher I aim to enable my students to enjoy a first-hand experience of what exactly speaking, thinking and reacting in a new language means. Adopting a different mindset enriches their perspectives on life and broadens their horizons.
With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (songs, short films, films, books, newspaper articles, literature) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education and subsequently put into practice in the London schools for which I worked.

My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations and/or to exam requirements (GCSE, A-levels, International Baccalaureate, IELTS, TEFL), according to students' needs.

I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination. Since I am very ambitious, determined and have high expectations, my students and I always work arduously and achieve our objectives.

Offering tuition in Italian, Spanish, English and Romanian at any level (beginners - intermediate - advanced).

Key achievements:
1- Gained a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) from a top tier university (Institute of Education, University of London);

2- Won the National Competition of Romanesque Languages - Italian language section (in 2003 and 2004 with a 10/10 result);

3- Conceived and ran an English language Workshop project for Cranfield University's students, where all had the possibility to teach and learn, revise grammar, discuss and share opinions.

R. Williams, A-level student's parent
Subject: Spanish (GCSE) Outcome: Our daughter received A* in both oral and written exams
An excellent and conscientious tutor, Cerasala has provided excellent support for our daughter in preparation for her Spanish IGCSE. She always comes prepared with topics for her lessons and uses varied and interesting materials to build on the syllabus. She really helped develop confidence in both spoken and written language. She is always on time, reliable and charming.

Ana, Lower Sixth student, The Harrodian School:

"I have known Ms Cerasela since September this year, when she became my private tutor for Italian language.
Ms Cerasela is an extraordinary young teacher. As her pupil I have seen many examples of her talent in linguistics and her broad interests not only in the Italian culture and civilisation but also in British, French and Spanish as well. She communicates her ideas clearly, in a smooth and efficient manner. She is reliable, dynamic and intelligent person with a good sense of humour. It is a pleasure to spend some time with her every week and I benefit a lot from her knowledge.
I will always hold her in the highest esteem and I highly recommend Ms Cerasela as a talented teacher and a great person. "

Ms Agatha, MFL Teacher Elthorn Park High School, London.

"Cerasela assisted me with my IB Italian class, therefore I got to know her very well.
I was not only impressed by her total commitment and dedication to teaching but also by her great linguistic ability and multi - talent in all areas of teaching. She immediately felt at ease with pupils of all ages and quickly developed a warm, positive and trusting relationship in which students felt valued and encouraged to work hard.
Cerasela also was well liked by all members in the Language Faculty because of her ability to work well in a team and for making valuable contribution to the department.
Cerasela's punctuality and attendance record was outstanding because of the fact that she is a very reliable and conscientious person who would never want to let anyone down.
Cerasela would be an asset to anyone who is employing her. I therefore recommend her to you without any reservations."

Ms Gergana, Head of Spanish at Elthorn Park High School, London.

"During her time at Elthorn, Cerasela has demonstrated that she has high expectations of pupils and has been an excellent role model for them.
Cerasela has been a real asset to the department. She shows a clear capacity to evaluate different teaching approaches and to reflect upon her own practice. She has worked very effectively as part of the Modern Foreign Languages team and built rapport with learners.
I cannot comment highly enough her ability to independently plan and research her materials and evaluate her teaching."

Patrizia, Director at CeSPI (Centro Studi Problemi Internazionali) - NGO
" […] she has completely succeeded in organising her own lessons delineating a programme with clear objectives, which has completely brought to completion, proving a clear confidence and the right flexibility and pro-activity in dealing with a totally variegate and stimulating group of students. At the end of the course she has received the maximum of appreciation from both students and teachers for her commitment and professionalism."

Teaching Experience:

9 years of private tuition (Italian/English) to both children and adults in Italy and Romania;
5 years business Italian teacher, Translator and Proofreader;
4 years of Spanish, French and Romanian teacher/private tutor in Italy and UK.

Tutoring Approach:

Aiming to encourage students to develop to their full potential and enrich their linguistic and cultural heritage through the use of cutting-edge language teaching techniques.

With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (music, short films, books, articles) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education (University of London) and then put into practice in the London schools I worked for. These techniques have proved to stimulate and engage students of all ages and language levels.

My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations or to exam requirements, according to students' needs. I have prepared students for: GCSE (Edexcel and AQA boards), A-levels and International Baccalaureate.

I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination. Since I am very ambitious and have high expectations, my students and I have always worked hard and achieved our goals.


Rates:

Fees vary ranging from £25/hour to £35/hour, depending on the number of hours per week, on location (at my house or at student's house) and on whether is ongoing or temporary tuition.


Discounts for lessons booked in advance and for 2:1 and group tuition.
*Travel expenses (minimum £3) may vary depending on how far I have to travel by public transport.

"Absolutely brilliant for Italian tuition, saved my grammar! At first, I was as apprehensive as anyone would be when I thought about tuition over skype - but if anything, it`s more effective. Instead travelling to a tutor, getting tired, getting home and thinking `I`ll just relax with a bit of TV` and then never picking up a book - The lesson was on time and intense, and I wasn`t too tired afterwards to do other revision. Also, when learning grammar, I suddenly remember something I don`t understand - but Cerasela can send me the link to resources immediately rather than having to wait to print them off. Thank you so much Cerasela for everything!"
A-level student testimonial

This is an A-level student`s testimonial who has recently contacted me for face to face tuition. Since she did not live close to my house I suggested we had a trial lesson over Skype. She has been open minded enough to try it and, from her review, the outcome is quite obvious.

Although some students are initially biased towards online tuition, all those who have tried it once have found this money, energy and time-saving way of learning be as effective as face to face tuition, if not even better.

They have all very much appreciated:

- the extremely quick way of receiving resources and taking notes through instant message exchange used to clarify spelling
- the possibility to later retrieve the information
- the possibility to record the sessions and therefore be able to listen again for correct pronunciation and natural intonation
- the opportunity to have lessons at any time, in different places, whether at home or on holiday, without incurring extra travelling costs and waste energy.

I would therefore encourage students to give it a try and do not let themselves be conditioned by unfounded fears. After all, there is nothing to lose, but everything to gain.

Personal Description:
Hi,
my name is Simona, from Milano, I am a highly responsible and dedicated professional Italian teacher with 10 years working experience.

I graduated at Faculty of Literature and Philosophy and specialized in Italian for Foreigners Center-CIS (Diploma)
University of Bergamo, which is equivalent to DITALS

Adaptable and open minded with good manner and good communication skills. A very good team member. I am also an artist and I enjoy the challenges of new opportunities.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Italian to immigrant adults for CGIL (Italian Trade Union) and to foreigner young people (7-17 years old) in public schools in Italy. I have been working in London as an Italian teacher for the last 4 years for some private Language Schools and I am now teching also to ACL Adult Learning Surrey council. I have gained experience in various contexts: Classes, One to One, Italian for Business and specific topics such as art and cuisine.
I can provide one-to-one and group courses in all level.

Tutoring Approach:

Teach­ing is a cre­ative job and this is why I enjoy it so much. It is very impor­tant to me to pre­pare my lessons carefully, so that they are inter­est­ing, dynamic, fun and of course tai­lored to the needs of each of my stu­dents. I like to use a vari­ety of teach­ing mate­ri­als such as books in Ital­ian, Ital­ian songs, games and videos. I like to pre­pare my own mate­r­ial and exer­cises and I love to invent fun and enter­tain­ing role-play games. I always make sure stu­dents feel con­fi­dent about their skills and their abil­ity to speak Italian."

Personal Description:
I have been a Biology teacher for 37 years. I am now retired and living with my wife in Hartland in North Devon.
We have four adult children.
I have taught in state schools and independent schools in UK and at International Schools in Africa and the Middle East. During my teaching career I have been Head of Biology for twelve years.
I have always enjoyed studying Biology and I like to think that I can pass my enthusiasm for the subject on to my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in UK for 19 years:
Twelve years at the Radclyffe School in Oldham, two years at St John Rigby Sixth Form College in Wigan and nearly five years at Shebbear College in North Devon where I was Head of Biology.
I have taught at International Schools for 18 years. All the institutions followed the British Curriculum:
One year at Barewa College, Zaria in Nigeria and one year at Seepapitso Secondary School in Botswana.
Nearly six years in Kenya at Hillcrest Secondary School, Nairobi where I was also the Head of Boarding.
Three years at Muscat Private School in Oman, two years as Head of Science at the British School of Alexandria, and three years at the Modern English School in Cairo as Head of Biology.
I completed my overseas teaching as Head of Biology at Al Khor International School in Qatar where I taught for two years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always enjoyed studying and teaching Biology which has effectively been my lifetime's work. I have extensive experience of teaching students from many different educational backgrounds and I have always been able to relate to my students and nurture an enthusiasm for the subject. As a tutor I would aim to make my lessons enjoyable but rigorous and I will always try my best to boost the confidence of my tutees. If students begin to enjoy the subject they will gain confidence and the examinations will then seem less daunting.
Whenever I tutor I will always incorporate the use of a computer into the learning process. I like to refer to animations and short video clips which greatly enhance the learning process. The on-line resources can then be used by my tutees to reinforce their understanding, as well as researching new material.

Personal Description:
After completing my D.Phil from the University of Oxford, I worked for 7 years as a Senior Biologist for a small drug discovery company where I was responsible for screening new drug targets in tissue models for human disease. Over the years I've had so many comments from students/colleagues about my ability to break subjects down to ease understanding, and coupled with my passion for science and sharing that with others I decided to change career and become a full-time science tutor. I've never looked back!

I am also a freelance examiner for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) - examining is invaluable to my role as a science tutor and to the development of my students' abilities in preparation for their examinations. It has taught me to understand the very specific focus of each syllabus as a whole, to read for the specific aim of relevant text, and to concentrate not just on surface comprehension but to expand science beyond basic skills.

I have many hobbies but particularly enjoy outdoor pursuits including: sailing, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking and running. Most of my free time though is spent with my wonderful husband and beautiful tots!

Teaching Experience:

During my time researching at Oxford, I tutored an array of students in Biochemistry, Biology, Genetics, Human Science and Medicine.

I have vast tutoring experience at both GCSE, AS/A2 level covering all UK exam specifications, including IB.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is informal, working with each student to improve their approach to learning whilst maintaining motivation. At the end of the day, learning should be fun!

I usually charge a very small travel fee to cover the cost of fuel.

Personal Description:
I am a native Greek speaker, born and bred in Athens. I am also fluent in English and have lived in England for 13 years.



I am keeping in close touch with Greece and the Greek language, which allows me to maintain my fluency, accent and knowledge of the country and the culture.

Teaching Experience:

I am an English teacher by profession and taught Greek students in language schools in Athens for fifteen years.

My students attained excellent examination results throughout my career from junior to advanced levels.

I also held private tuition throughout this period.



Since coming to England, I have taught Greek privately to English speakers who were interested in acquiring knowledge of the Greek language for various purposes such as holidays, purchasing property in Greece (holiday homes and permanent residence) and people who wanted to enter themselves into the Greek GCSE exams.

Tutoring Approach:

First of all, I am a sensitive listener.

I am patient with excellent skills in conveying my knowledge to my students. Focusing on helping students to feel confident with the various aspects of the language without judging them.



Finally, I firmly believe that practice makes perfect, which is also my most significant approach to teaching.



I believe it is important that lessons are interactive and fun. The lessons are customised to the student according to their personal needs, following an initial friendly telephone discussion.

Personal Description:
Hi, my names Tom and I am a history graduate from the University of York,
I have loved history all of my life and I really want to pass that on to other people, which is why I would love to be a tutor,
I am really comfortable tutoring history, having attained an A* at GCSE, an A at A Level and a 2:1 BA degree at the University of York and I know that I am able enough to do a very good job,
Spanish was another subject that I enjoyed and which I am also really comfortable tutoring, having attained an A* at GCSE and having previously taught Spanish in a school in York,
I have a CRB Check available, which was completed before working at the aforementioned school in York.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Spanish voluntarily at Tang Hall Primary School, York as part of the University of York's Project Babylon,
Besides that I am quite inexperienced, but I am confident that I would be a good tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I would try to make the tutoring as interesting as possible by incorporating a range of activities as well as using the subject's textbooks and relevant materials,
In particular, I believe that flash cards work really well, therefore I would create flashcards with the student, before revising using them.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified and experienced native English ESL/EFL teacher, specialised in working with adults in companies and universities.

I help people in a wide range of professions to give presentations, participate in meetings and conference calls, write emails, and to be generally more conversational and confident when speaking and listening.

I also work with university students to improve their academic writing, to pass exams such as the TOEFL, TOEIC and IELTS, and to prepare them for entering the work environment after graduation.

I offer a free, 30-minute evaluation without any obligation, and a course book is included in the price if you sign up for 20 hours or more. Classes take place at your home or workplace with no extra charges for travel.

Teaching Experience:

January 2013 - August 2016
Director of Studies and Principal Teacher at LE Maison, France

February 2012 - December 2012
Pedagogical Manager and English Language Training Consultant at Mahoney Training Consultants, Paris, France

August 2010 - December 2012
Freelance Business English Teacher in Paris, France

October 2009 - February 2012
Business English Teacher at Business and Technical Languages, Paris, France

Tutoring Approach:

Adult learners are often juggling several professional and personal commitments which makes finding the time to learn a struggle. Therefore, I make the process as fun and efficient as possible.

For this reason, I begin with an in-depth evaluation of the student's needs and objectives as well as their strengths and weaknesses. From there, I build a course using a wide range of materials that meets these requirements.

My classes are always engaging and never the same two weeks in a row. During each lesson, I discover something new about my student which allows me to continually adapt the course to help them stay motivated, interested, and improve as quickly as possible while making learning a pleasure rather than work.

Personal Description:
2008 National Teaching Award Winner (Southern Region.)
Volunteer linesman every Sunday - for my 3 sons' football teams.
Keen cyclist - I've cycled further than the distance around the equator as I commuted to and from school.
Animal lover - I enjoy jogging with Scout, my rescue dog.
Educational author - I wrote a maths assessment book that was sold in WHSmith.
Piano player - I accompany a large choir that performs in both the Guildhall and the Cathedral in Portsmouth.
Prioritiser - In 2010 I decided to reduce my hours so that I could spend more time with my wife!

Teaching Experience:

I have been a classroom teacher for 23 years in 3 different schools; I was head hunted for the last job and when I left it in November 2016, it was graded outstanding by OFSTED. I have predominantly worked in year 6 where I have helped to raise standards of attainment - I have been successful in accelerating progress for many pupils (particularly in maths) to double Government expectations.

I have spent most of my career as a maths manager in schools but I have also led English and science. I have been a key stage leader for over 10 years and have mentored trainee teachers who have gone on to have their own successful teaching careers.
Winning the 2008 Award for Best Primary School Teacher in the South was an amazing experience. The judges interviewed pupils, staff and parents - families who weren't able to attend the meeting were able to submit letters of support and the highlight of the whole process was getting to read these testimonials afterwards.

Tutoring Approach:

Every pupil is different: each pupil has their own particular knowledge of facts, procedures and concepts, but they are also unique in their attitude, experience, confidence and motivation. Finding a tutoring approach that best suits each child is very important and, where appropriate, I make use of the recent educational principles of 'Growth Mindset' which challenge the notion that some people are just born clever, and encourages pupils to value risk taking, criticism and effort.

Individual tuition allows time so rarely afforded in whole class lessons to track back and identify the misconceptions that can sometimes be the underlying cause of slow progress or issues with confidence. The focus of good teaching is about building all new learning onto secure foundations and making strong and varied connections between concepts.

I align my approach to meet the needs of the tutee and will work at a pace that is comfortable for the individual. I can adapt my teaching style to achieve their desired potential, levels ranging from basic conversational to fluent Italian. I am very approachable and patient.
