Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified and experienced teacher of Modern Foreign Languages. I have taught in a school near Wakefield for 8 years and have been a private tutor for five years. I am a very enthusiastic and approachable teacher. I can offer languages teaching in French, Spanish, German, Italian and Japanese. I offer teaching at all levels; primary languages, with a view to possibly taking GCSE examinations early, Key stage 3, GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A2 levels and adult languages classes. I also cover the new GCSE and A-level specifications for exams in 2018. I have experience in all areas of languages teaching and I throughly enjoy teaching languages!

I also work for 3 distance learning schools, as a tutor for French and Spanish. I am Lead Tutor for one school and also carrying out consultancy work for the new A-level exam. I teach students from all over the world which is a real honour.

I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to take the language of their choice. Therefore, I am happy to offer to help students take a GCSE or A level in a language which may not be available in their school. I can help with assessments and speaking tests in addition to a high standard of tuition to learn the language at the desired level and beyond.

I am currently learning Chinese as it has always interested me and as a teacher, I know that I need to remember what it is like to be a language learner!

References are available upon request.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE and QTS qualification in Modern Languages and as part of my studies, I taught in two schools in North Yorkshire. I have been a teacher in a Specialist Language College near Wakefield for 8 years and a private tutor for 2 years. As a teacher in a Specialist Language College, I have taught KS3 and GCSE languages in addition to working in the community, teaching languages at local Primary Schools and carrying out Adult language classes.

For my private tuition, I have taught many A-level students in addition to primary students, GCSE students and adult learners. I have found this to be very interesting to see how people learn in different ways and develop their confidence in learning a new language or gaining extra support for language learning.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I always check to see what level each student is at in the first lesson. All lessons are tailored to the students' needs so you can get the most out of learning a language. I recommend useful resources and I am happy to lend books and DVDs from the extensive range of resources I have built up as a result of tutees' wishes. I have an excellent knowledge of the national curriculum and exam specifications of all the boards and I keep up-to-date with the many changes which may occur in education.

I look at all language skills although I may focus on one or two particular areas if this is what the tutee needs (such as listening and speaking if exams were not to be taken). I use ICT in my lessons and use many different websites and encourage students to use these at home and I help with grammar, even if it is the basics, as an understanding of this is essential to learning a language successfully!

I set homework tasks each week for students and I also offer a 'mid lesson service', where students can Skype or Phone so that I can check on progress or answer any questions. A quick chat in the target language is fine too! This service is free. I am also happy to answer any texts on the language- that is what I'm here for!

All new students are welcome. I always answer all requests so please also check spam folders just in case!
Plase note that there is a slightly cheaper rate for students wanting daytime teaching sessions.
merci, gracias, grazie, danke, arigatou!

Tutoring Approach:

My training revolves around clarification, scepticism and individuality. All training is time managed to ensure the student gets the most out of their lessons. We begin with a clear set objective and make sure the student has in mind the goal of every exercise undertaken. Rather than teach a list of techniques, I actively engage all students to get the most out of their individual strengths and I encourage them to look critically at what will work best for them. I promote a self-coaching concept for more efficient skill retention.

Personal Description:
I offer Italian, French and English tuition at all levels, from complete beginners to highers and advanced.

I have a PhD in Modern Languages from La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy (2000), where I studied English as a main subject with French and Italian.

After graduation I spent a long time working in France before relocating to Scotland where I have been teaching Italian, English and French for the past 10 years.

I have students of various age and nationality, both children and adults. I am PVG checked.

I frequently go back to France and Italy in order to keep up-to-date with the language.

Teaching Experience:

University of Aberdeen

Tutoring Approach:

I think that learning a new language is an experience and it should be fun.

I am committed to delivering high quality tuition by offering tailor-made classes to suit different students' needs.

I have experience teaching children and adults one-to-one, one-to-two, and small groups.

I offer flexible hours so my students can arrange the classes according to their needs and availability.

Learning a language is a great opportunity to learn the culture of another country. Therefore, I use different media such as books, online articles and newspapers for reading comprehension, CDs for listening activities and conversation exercises, songs and games for children.

I can prepare for school and university exams and correct written exercises by email at no extra costs.
If you are not sure about your language level, I can assess it during the first class in order to plan a suitable course that suits your needs.

If you are a distance learner at school, college or university I can act as an assessment supervisor for your language tests.

I am enthusiastic for using new technologies to add to the learning experience.

I also offer distance learning tuition through Skype worldwide for all intermediate and advanced learners.

Personal Description:
I'm an easy going, empathetic, supportive and a very patient tutor who is dedicated to all my students and teaching Maths. I'm very thorough in my teaching and ensure no stone is left unturned in preparing for my student's maths exams/tests. I enjoy helping my students reach their full potential and achieve their aims. I encourage all my students to take a general interest in Mathematics as this helps them in doing well. I do 1 to 1 tuition and also tutor small groups of no more than 4 students. I teach all levels up to and including A-Level and for all exam boards (AQA, EDEXCEL and OCR). I have thus far been very successful as a Maths tutor and hope to continue this trend especially in light of the tremendous performance of my students in the 2016 academic year. I specialize in helping my students obtain grades A-A* in their exams. Every GCSE (Higher) and A-Level Student I have ever tutored has gained grades A* to C.

Teaching Experience:

I'm currently a Teacher of Mathematics at a local academy in Luton (11-19 year olds) and have had 6 years experience in private tuition, teaching Mathematics at all levels up to and including A-Level. Teach all abilities and ages.

Tutoring Approach:

The aim of my tuition lessons is 2 fold. Firstly it is to give my students a thorough understanding of the Mathematics modules/topics they are studying so that they are able to gain an excellent foundation in studying Mathematics or courses that have a substantial Mathematical content at a higher level. Secondly I give my students intensive and vigorous exam preparation so that they do extremely well in their examinations and achieve high grades. This is usually done by by doing many past papers under exam conditions. I also set my students difficult questions to complete (from many different sources and references). These questions are more difficult than what would normally appear in their actual exams. The purpose of making my students do these questions is so that they are totally prepared to tackle any questions that their exams or tests may throw at them.

Personal Description:
I am a native speaker of Turkish. I've been living in England since 1997 and completed my Computer Science degree in 2006 at Aston University / Birmingham. For my final year project I developed computer program to translate between Turkish and English. The program was build using a dictionary, set of rules listed in a pattern and a logic to extract meaning using the dictionary and the pattern. Turkish is morphologically a complex language. However complexity can be simplified by learning the patterns, and then enjoy making sentences using logic. I find learning a language exciting myself and after my degree started to learn German. Through listening to cd's of Michael Thomas. It was fascinating to see that he was using the same technique to teach couple of his students. During the learning process it was their logic that was being challenged more than their memory of words and phrases. I think it is ok to 'cheat' and look up words that you don't remember. Once you start making sentences using particular words and you are comfortable with the sentence you will also remember the word due to the pattern you have built in your mind. Regardless of our individual learning styles, I think building patterns is a more permanent and easy way of learning than trying to memorise everything.

Teaching Experience:

I ve been giving private tuition in Birmingham, and now I would like to continue this in Bournemouth. I am currently doing a research about effective ways of teaching Turkish. I am interested in teaching Turkish because I enjoy teaching, also the experience will support my project. My ultimate aim is to write and record my own teaching materials for learning Turkish

Tutoring Approach:

I developed my interest in languages through my degree. I am competent in teaching, and I will adopt my technique based on the individual's learning style. Most native English speaking people in the UK finds agglutinative languages difficult to comprehend, as they attempt to 'understand' by comparing them with their own or some other European language. I believe that I can provide techniques that will overcome this difficulty. I enjoy teaching Turkish because I believe that I can understand how different individuals perceive and learn. I find it challenging and rewarding to be able to connect with people, deliver information the way they will appreciate, and see people enjoying the experience of learning.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate in German and Drama and I work in theatre and film as a freelance set and costume designer and also as a freelance translator (English and German).
I'm from London but lived in Germany for 4 years. I enjoy learning languages, cooking, reading, cycling, and going to the theatre and cinema. I am currently based in Bristol where I am studying for an MA.

Teaching Experience:

I enjoy teaching and have mentored students at various levels, mainly in German or English as a foreign language. I worked as an English teacher in Germany, teaching English as a foreign language to children and teenagers of all levels from 7-17 years old. I have up to date knowledge of the curriculum for GCSE German.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an open and student-based approach to tutoring - you decide what and how you want to learn. I provide guidance, advice and subject knowledge and offer feedback on how you can improve what you already know, as well as the way you learn, to help you learn more independently. I only teach subjects I'm passionate about and believe in enjoying yourself while learning.

Personal Description:
My name is Karina, and I am a qualified teacher having completed the graduate scheme Teach First, and passed with Outstanding. My experience within the classroom has helped me adapt my teaching style to each individual. I understand that each student has their own needs and struggles, and may benefit especially from private one-to-one tutoring.

I now work in management consultancy specialising in Education and Health & Public Service. Even though I no longer work in the classroom, I am keen to continue to support students in their studies for their GCSEs and A Levels.

My own education has shown me excellent tutoring and teaching methods, and has compelled me to provide a similar, excellent tutoring experience. I was first educated at The Lady Eleanor Holles School in Hampton (a top 10 Independent School), which allowed me to experience a variety of different teaching methods from all disciplines. From this, I have been able to study at a top 10 university, specialising in the subject that most appealed to me at school.

Academic Qualifications:
Teach First PGCE with Distinction (Outstanding level)
BA (Hons) Economics and Business with East European Studies (Upper Second) from University College London
4 A Levels: Economics (A), Geography (A), Mathematics (A), Russian (A)
11 GCSEs: 5A*s, 3As, 3Bs

Teaching Experience:

Qualified Teacher with Teach First for two full academic years
-- Taught Mathematics to Key Stage 3 and 4
-- Taught over 200 pupils from Year 7 to Year 11, successfully increasing grades by as much as three GCSE Grades.
-- Implemented and managed the Year 7 numeracy programme (Times Tables Rock Stars), trained the maths department in using the online and written versions, and analysed the resulting data in Excel. Introduced the programme to neighbouring primary schools.
-- Developed a new Scheme of Work, using an innovative 'Mastery' curriculum for Year Eight Maths.

GCSE tutor at an Inner London school.
-- Specialised mainly in Mathematics.

Chess tutor at national chess tournaments
-- Having trained with International master

Tutoring Approach:

Before the first session, I will attempt to understand the certain topics the student requires help with, and prepare materials ready for this session. For every session, I will bring along materials, past papers, exam questions, presentations and videos to go through with the student. Where relevant, I would like the student to complete a full exam paper where I can understand the topics that the student is struggling with. Feedback on these exam questions is essential, and I will work to understand why the student is struggling with the problems, and build on the methods they are already using to answer the problems.

Personal Description:
A graduate of Cambridge and Durham I have specialised in ancient languages and literature. While based in Durham I am currently completing a PhD in Old Norse literature at the Birkbeck College, University of London.

Teaching Experience:

As well as current private tutoring in English lit, Lang and Classics at all levels I am an undergraduate tutor at Durham University. I have strong experience helping students reach their full potential and gain the grades they need or higher. I have taught both online and in person, both at GCSE-adult. I was selected as an open day lecturer for Newnham college Cambridge in 2008 and I have attended several courses on lecturing in secondary and higher education both at Birkbeck and Oxford.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to inspire my students with the same passion and interest I feel for language and literature, texts and contexts. I tailor my approach to the need of each student, but in general teach not by lecturing but by posing questions which lead the student to a greater understanding of text and context. I aim to show students how to enjoy the subject as well as teach them the means and methods to make their studying and writing easier. I have a great deal of experience helping students with exam and essay technique.

Personal Description:
I am currently a 2nd year undergraduate studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Imperial College London. I was selected to attend the Google Top Black Talent Programme, recognising the best talents in the UK at the moment. I am a very sociable and creative person, which is why I currently hold the position of Creative Director of the Afro-Caribbean society at Imperial, one of Imperial's largest cultural societies.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught computer literacy to individuals from disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching is simple. Kids will never learn unless they want to. I intend to present my teaching in a way that is creative and interesting to the student, so as to make the best of each session. The best teachers do not just teach. They engage. It is paramount you are able to capture the interest of your student, something I am more than capable of.

Personal Description:
I'm a professional actor/voice over artist with a BA in Journalism and MA in Acting.
I was born in Russia and have lived and trained in London for over 10 years.

Acting: I have trained to be a professional actress at a nationally accredited drama school Drama Studio London and have worked as an actor and voice over artist since graduating in 2011.

Russian Language: I am bilingual: native Russian speaker with native level of English

Teaching Experience:

I'm just starting out as a tutor.
Acting: I have trained a few students how to present better (in a corporate environment), and have constantly felt I could teach really well. I'm a good actor with clear understanding what demands drama schools have, which drama schools focus on what. I'd be an excellent tutor for aspiring actors.
Language: I've given a range of private English lessons to foreign speakers, and thought I might as well teach Russian too. I have a BA (NARIC approved, local MA) in Journalism from The State St.-Petersburg University, one of the best universities in the country. I have worked as a radio presenter and print journalist for a range of Russian media, including Marie Claire, Elle, Empire, Rolling Stone.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very attentive and involved with my students.
Acting: This is very sensitive type of art. There is a lot of psychology involved in performing. I will not only help with preparing a speech for drama school auditions (speech clarity, projection, tension release, delivery) but also share a few tips on how to develop your acting skills.
Russian Language: I will be able to help only students who have already had certain level of Russian language training. I will help to understand how the language works, what Russian mentality is like, work on pronunciation, sentence structure, etc. I can not, I'm afraid, help beginners.

Personal Description:
I'm a qualified French and English teacher and hold an honours degree in linguistics.

I am really interested in child development and love observing what makes children tick when they are learning and fully engaged in something they enjoy. I try to replicate this in all of my lessons.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my children, read, make things and chat with my friends.

Teaching Experience:

One year in a successful Shropshire school teaching English and French

One year in a challenging Wrexham school teaching English

One year in a Shropshire school teaching French and English

One year in Modern languages departments in Telford and Shropshire

Several smaller placements in schools across Cheshire

Six months working on a one-to-one basis with pupils finding it difficult to engage with their school work

Tutoring Approach:

People learn in a variety of ways (verbal/visual/tactile/abstract) and as such I believe work should be adapted to each learner to match the way they learn best.
