PRIVATE CHINESE (MANDARIN/CANTONESE) LESSONS WITH QUALIFIED NATIVE TUTOR (GCSE/AS/AL/ADULT LEARNER)

Hello and Nihao! My name is James. I have realised that Chinese has become a more and more popular language worldwide recently due to the increased economic activities China does with the rest of the world. It is the most widely spoken language in the world (approx. 1.3 billion Chinese speakers in the world). It is also one of the six official languages in the UN. It is now a trend that in order to be a successful business person or even a professional in other aspects, it is important to acquire the ability to speak Chinese and to understand the Chinese culture.

As a Chinese Teacher at a private boarding school (Trinity School in Teignmouth, Devon), I would like to promote the Chinese language and culture as much as I can. I am now offering private Chinese lessons at a learner-friendly price in the Torbay and South Devon area. The price is as below:

GCSE: £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON
AS/A-LEVEL: £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON
ADULT LEARNER/UNIVERSITY LEVEL: £25 PER HOUR PER PERSON



PRVIATE JAPANESE LESSONS

Konichiwa! With a very good command of Japanese and seeing a growing interest in the language, I am now offering flexible Japanese lessons to the those who are interested. I am willing to travel to teach with added travel expense. Prices as as below:

CHILD LEARNER : £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON
ADULT LEARNER: £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON



PRIVATE ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS LESSONS (GCSE/AS/AL/UNIVERSITY)

Graduated with a Business and Economics background and seeing pupils at my school struggling with their Business and Economics school work, I also offer private Economics and Business lessons for those who need help with their school work outside school. Price is as below:

GCSE: £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON
AS/A-LEVEL: £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON
ADULT LEARNER: £20 PER HOUR PER PERSON

PRIVATE MARTIAL ARTS AND SELF DEFENCE LESSONS (ANY AGE AND EXPERIENCE)

As a life-time passion, I have had an extensive training in Martial Arts since I was 15. So far, I have been training in boxing, wing chun, Muay-Thai, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Filipino Kali free style wrestling and MMA. I was the University Students' Champion in a Muay Thai Tournament in 2007 back in Hong Kong. Seeing MMA and self-defence has become more and more popular nowadays, I am offering private Martial Arts/Self Defence lessons. If you are interested in learning any martial arts, whether as a beginner or as an experienced fighter hoping to sharpen your skills or simply just want to learn self-defence to protect yourself, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can arrange 1:1 sessions or group sessions according to your needs. Price is as below:

Personal Description:
I am a mature lady (50yo) with a 1st Class Electrical/Electronic Engineering Degree (B.Sc) from Birmingham University and a Postgraduate Management qualification from Cambridge University.

My own 'A' Levels were Biology, Maths and Physics with a particular focus on electronics. At University I studied Maths at degree level.

I am also trained in other areas such as photo-reading (speed reading), hypnotherapy and craniosacral therapy. I have worked with young people utilising various modalities to help them gain confidence and choose careers/subjects that bring out the best in them. I studied for a time in a Rudolph Steiner environment so I appreciate the value of alternative approaches to educating young people. I was also a member of the Academy Appeals panel for some time in Hereford (for the Steiner Academy there).

From 2009 to 2012 I worked in an Admin capacity for OFSTED travelling around Schools and Colleges up and down the SW of England. My particular area of responsibility was the safeguarding and protection of children.

In 2011 I attended an Introduction to Autism training with the HANDLE organisation as I increasingly meet young people struggling on the Autism spectrum so this topic is of particular interest to me. I would be able to help refer any child who needed more specialised care. Related to this I have also been studying Human Design which is an invaluable tool for understanding how unique we all are.

I am friendly, empathic and good with younger people. I endeavour to help bring out the best in them on all levels.

Teaching Experience:

I have successfully tutored Maths and Physics to High School students whilst living abroad in Canada and back here in the UK where I have been based more lately.

Tutoring Approach:

I work outside of my home in non-pet and non-smoker environments only at this time.
I ask the student to bring all relevant texts with them for the lesson.
If you also have past exam papers please also bring those.

I hold an enhanced CRB.

I have recently reduced my rates in recognition of the economic climate. I am negotiable to an extent in cases of hardship so please feel free to enquire.

Personal Description:
I am now a full time tutor after spending two decades teaching Mathematics and Science.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very experienced teacher. I have been the Head of Mathematics at a private school and previously taught in state schools.

Tutoring Approach:

The first three tutoring sessions are quite diagnostic. The aim is not only to find out strengths and weaknesses but also to see how quickly we can cover topics with most of the information retained.
As we cover material at a much faster rate than in normal class lessons.; recaps at speed become more import as lessons develop and confidence improves. The syllabus and past exam papers provide the main framework for most lessons.
Exam technique lessons, examiners mark schemes and revision materials are normally provided.

Subjects
  • Combined Science
  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)
  • Physics
  • 11+ (secondary) (£30 p.h.)
  • GCSE or Standards (£30 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I graduated from Coventry University and speak fluent Mandarin and English.

I studied broadcasting while I was in China and I worked as a presenter part-time for a radio station, as such My Chinese pronunciation is very clear and standard. I also studied some Japanese, which gave me a grasp of learning and developing a new language.

I got first class in the National Standard Chinese Level Qualification which shows I have near perfect pronunciation. Pronunciation is very important in Chinese and thus it is vital that the person who is teaching you has good pronunciation or you will pick up their mistakes too.

Teaching Experience:

When I was in China, I tutored some primary school aged students English to earn extra income. This has given me a base in teaching languages and so I have a good understanding of the differences in the languages such as grammar, word composition, and the etiquette.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very much tailored to the students needs.
For short-time learners, I will focus on basic common expressions, useful tourists sayings and culture differences. For long-time learners I will work on everything from grammar to hand writing to allow the student to communicate naturally in in Chinese.

Personal Description:
Hello - I am a friendly and approachable teacher who is based in Surrey and uses a variety of teaching methods and techniques to help students consolidate their understanding, progress and achieve to the best of their ability. I have taught students of all ages and abilities and have received positive feedback from my students. I believe that questions should never be considered irrelevant or silly and that as each student is an individual, different methods and approaches may be required to aid their understanding. Please feel free to contact me for further information or guidance.

Teaching Experience:

9 Years teaching experience in Secondary schools. I have taught both boys and girls of all ages and also adults. I teach Latin to GCSE level and Classical Civilisation / Ancient History to A-level. I am also able to assist students with study skills, improve their English language skills and have knowledge of other languages such as French and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have an idea of what topics the student has already studied and which text books they are currently working from. The first session will be to find out what areas the student feels they are struggling in and what topics need more focus and consolidation. As each student is an individual, the sessions will be tailored to their unique learning needs and I will help them to gain as much as they can from each session and hopefully improve their understanding, their achievement grades and confidence in their abilities.

Client Reviews:

'Lisa was honestly the best tutor! She is a highly knowledgeable teacher of Physics and helped my daughter really understand her subject. She was great at explaining everything. She definitely helped my daughter raise her grade GCSE. I would highly recommend Lisa' From Alghamadi, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Physics)

'Lisa has tutored our daughter for the last two years. When our daughter first began working with Lisa she was working from a below average baseline and had little confidence. What a difference an hour a week with a capable maths tutor makes as our daughter has recently secured a grade B in her GCSE maths -Grade E to Grade B that's some going!! All credit for our daughter's amazing progress goes to Lisa and her patient, friendly, but tenacious teaching style. We are so pleased that we found Lisa, she has been an absolute Godsend! Highly recommended!' From Gail Baker, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Maths)

'Lisa has supported our daughter with Maths throughout year 11. She made her feel she could ask for help as many times as needed and was always patient and supportive. Our daughter has had several 'eureka' moments with Lisa in which she actually truly understood concepts she has struggled with at school. Lisa definitely motivates her students to believe in themselves and encourages them to reach their full potential. We highly recommend working with Lisa.' From Elly Dolan, Score 5/5, August 2016 (GCSE Maths)

'Absolutely fantastic tutor. Lisa helped me to get 2 A*'s and an A in Maths and science, which allowed me to get into the college I had applied for. I would definitely recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to achieve the best that they can, at any level.' From Jack, Score 5/5, August 2015 (GCSE Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Additional Maths & Further Maths)

'My daughter has just gained A's in both Physics and Chemistry at GCSE. These are not easy subjects and finding Lisa has made a massive difference. She explains difficult areas and makes the subject become alive and understandable. This has given her confidence and fortunately she covered areas that the school had not and that actually came up in the exam! She has a lovely auora about her and can make anyone feel calm and relaxed and ready to learn. She is a great communicator, organised and efficient and worth her weight in gold! many thanks Lisa', From Tracey, Score 5/5, August 2014 (GCSE Physics and Chemistry)

'Lisa taught my son and I am so glad I found her. She is highly intelligent and I soon realised my son was in very professional hands which was very comforting as we drove one hour every week sometimes twice a week to get to her. Lisa has a lovely personality and would make anyone feel comfortable the moment you meet her. Her schedule is extremely busy and she is very much in demand. So don't delay if you want to grab a spot in her diary. A very happy family. Worth every penny.' From Yvette, Score 5/5, September 2014 (GCSE Maths, Physics & Chemistry)

He liked Lisa straight away and her teaching had an immediate effect on school tests. He can now go on to sixth form with increased confidence and belief in his own abilities.' From Mrs Rayner, Score 5/5, August 2014 (IGCSE Physics and IGCSE Chemistry)

'I would like to say Lisa is a great private tutor. She has helped my son over the last year achieve a C in maths when his last 2 mock exams were grades D and E. Having the one to one sessions with Lisa really helped my son understand certain parts of maths he was struggling with at school.

'I would like to say Lisa is a great private tutor. She has helped my son over the last year achieve a C in maths when his last 2 mock exams were grades D and E. Having the one to one sessions with Lisa really helped my son understand certain parts of maths he was struggling with at school. She was very professional and accommodating when I couldn't make certain appointments. I would like to thank Lisa for everything and say if you are looking for a private tutor then I would highly recommend Lisa.' From Donna, August 2014 (GCSE Maths)

From Margaret: (5/5) 'Lisa was a brilliant tutor for my son. Andy found her to be a very good teacher with a wealth of experience. Andy found the sessions to be helpful as he prepared to sit his GCSE science.
Many thanks Lisa.' (September 2013)

From Mrs Bird: 'With thanks & gratitude for your excellent tutoring, this combined with Imogen's hard work has been reflected in her GCSE results - an 'A' in Mathematics(Higher), 'B' Science & 'C' in Additional Science. This time last year she had really 'lost her way' with her studies but with your personal approach, guidance & support you gave Imogen the renewed interest & confidence to achieve...without hesitation we would recommend you, thank you' (August 2013)

From Hariett (5/5):(A-level Physics) 'Lisa is very approachable, we have built up a good relationship as a result she has built up my confidence on the areas in which I felt lacking.' (April 2013)

From Angela (5/5): (GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry) 'Right from the beginning Lisa was professional and friendly and continues to be so. Although it is early days I do feel that my daughter is already benefitting from Lisa's input.
Highly recomended!' (March 2013)

From Athena (5/5): (A-Level Physics) 'Excellent knowledge, very good teacher, highly professional' (November 2012)

From Lee (August 2012) 'I would definately recommend Lisa as a tutor, she helped me gain a grade A in a-Level Physics. Lisa is extremely good at making the understanding of Physics easier and will happily explain principles thoroughly until you understand. Lisa also provided lots of past exam papers which i found extremely helpful. Lisa is also very easy to get along with and very welcoming.'

From Teresa (5/5): (GCSE Maths, Physics and Chemistry) 'Lisa has been working with our 15 year old son to prepare him for his maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSEs as well as helping him to master some study skills and to be better organised in his school work and homework. He has shown significant improvement in a very short space of time with Lisa's support. He enjoys his lessons and has gained a better, more in-depth understanding of the subject matter. Lisa is reliable, friendly and flexible in her ability to cover a broad range of subjects. I would recommend Lisa without hesitation. (August 2012)

From Ian (July 2012) 'Lisa coached our grammar school student son during the last two months of his GCSE physics study and made a real improvement to his level of understanding. I know that the tutoring will have definitely improved his grade.

We found her to be polite, understanding and easy to work with. My son felt at ease with her and she was flexible and able to accommodate our needs at short notice. I would definitely recommend her.'

From Christine (5/5): (A-Level Physics) 'Always punctual and worked hard with our son on improving his Physics.' (June 2012)

From Louise (5/5): (A-Level Physics) 'Three months ago our son was struggling with AS Level Physics. Lisa's organised approach has given him the confidence to tackle the subject and hopefully achieve a very good grade. Highly recommended. Louise.' (1st June 2012)

'From Bridget (5/5): (GCSE Maths) So far so good! George is really enjoying his lessons which is great as he had been put off Maths by an uninspiring teacher at school.
Keep up the good work. '(May 2012)

'Many thanks to Lisa for working with both my teenage girls who have differing abilites. Lisa was able to identify their individual needs and provide work which supported their learning styles and range of understanding. LG 3.1.12. Score 5/5'

Personal Description:
I have a first class degree in mathematics. I am learning Russian. I am interested in astronomy.

Teaching Experience:

I have helped many students achieve much better results than they initially expected. Many people find that they can understand what they at first found difficult in a well managed one to one setting. I give the lessons at my home. I have been tutoring since 1987.

I have also helped students prepare for STEP. I get about half my students on recommendation

Tutoring Approach:

I do in the lesson what the student asks me to do, but I am prepared to structure a course for somebody not in school,

Personal Description:
I am a Mandarin speaker. I studied in UK since 2013. I got my Master Degree from the University of Manchester. The subject is Electrical Engineering. I have lots of hobbies, football, basketball, magic tricks, dancing salsa and travelling. In my opinion, life is limited, but the quality depends on how you spend it. I am looking for a cool life expenrience and would love to share it with friends.

Teaching Experience:

I taught Mandarin to a British guy for 4 months.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing about learning a different language is passion. I would rather teach student Chinese from the area they are interested into than routine staff. For example, their hobbies, favourite movies, musics, sports and so forth. As far as I concerned, enthusiasm is essential not only for teacher but also for student. Also, I would use creative approach to teach Mandarin by hanging out in Chinatown, Chinese supermarket so as to give them a practival experience of learning a different language and have a deep understanding both Mandarian and Chinese culture. After student have passion on learning a different language, I will teach them Mandarin according to different sceneries, for example, topics regarding food, weather and so on.

Personal Description:
I am a British academic, with degrees from the universities of London, Jerusalem and Cambridge. Author of 'Israel and the Cold War: Diplomacy, Strategy, and the Policy of the Periphery at the United Nations' (I.B. Tauris, 2013), I write for several academic journals, and review for the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House. I was the first recipient of the Mikardo scholarship, awarded by the British Foreign Office, and, whilst at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, was awarded a Golda Meir Fellowship. Whilst at Cambridge, I won a Donner prize in Atlantic Studies.

Teaching Experience:

A former Teaching Fellow at King's College London, I have taught MA courses on the Arab-Israeli conflict, US and British Foreign Policy, War and Peace in the Middle East, and Inter-Faith Relations in the Mediterranean. A fluent Hebrew speaker, I was Peer Tutor in Hebrew at University College London, where I was awarded the departmental prize for excellence in the Hebrew language, and I have tutored privately in Britain, and abroad.

Tutoring Approach:

Relaxed, interactive, theme-based, and multi-disciplinary. Use of past papers, analysis, deconstruction of exam and essay questions, concepts, and requirements; development of essay, and exam structure. I pay particular attention to a student's self-confidence, and self-expression, which often serve as catalysts for enhanced self-belief and, hence, success.
