Personal Description:
I am 23 years old, and a graduate of French and Management from Leeds University. I am currently living in Oxford. I have a passion for the French language and culture and would love to share and help pass this on to other young people alongside my work.
(I am the brunette in the picture)

Teaching Experience:

I have spent a year working in France as a teaching assistant with the British Council, where I taught English to students aged 15-22. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience working in a different culture, and to hone my presentation and organisational skills in a new and challenging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to make learning fun, and to motivate students. I do this by setting interesting and diverse themes. I then divide individual classes into several activities to help keep students engaged. I regularly employ vocabulary games and set challenges, which are surprisingly effective way for students to learn and retain new words whilst making the lessons more enjoyable for the students!

  • Up to 11 years (primary) (10 p.h.)

My name is Mo and I am an experienced teacher of Psychology and Sociology, based just off Bishopthorpe road in York.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience of teaching, have worked as a senior examiner for a major exam board for many years as well as leading successful departments of both Psychology and Sociology.

I also work as a freelance academic author and in recent moths have worked with the Oxford University press on it`s new GCSE Psychology textbook and A level Psychology resources. Prior to this I have produced several resources for ZigZag educational for the New A level Psychology specification.

Personal Description:
I am currently in the second year of my PhD at the University of York in the Archaeology Department. My research focuses on British defences and their historical, social and political contexts, in particular York and Hull's city walls from 1550 to 1700. My area of interest is primarily Britain but I have a broad knowledge of European history from the Medieval to modern times. During my education I have studied numerous periods, including Richard II, Medieval England, Early Modern Europe, 19th century German unification, World War I & II, the rise of the Nazis, Native Americans, Vichy France, the Italian Renaissance, the Cold War, English Civil War, Tudors and Stuarts, as well as other areas and periods through my own interest and study.

Teaching Experience:

I taught 15 first year undergraduates for a module within the Archaeology Department called History and Theory. This looked at the historical and theoretical contexts of archaeology and involved a large number of readings and assigned tasks devised by myself for the students, in conjunction with them producing two essays that I also graded. I also partook in an accredited teaching qualification from The Higher Education Academy. This involved producing a portfolio relating to my own teaching and participation in numerous workshops looking at the practical and theoretical aspects of academic teaching.

Tutoring Approach:

Having studied History through GCSE, A-Level, Undergraduate, Postgraduate and now with a PhD I feel that I know what a student requires. Primarily this includes the opportunity to foster their own ideas and thoughts that are then framed within an academic context, based upon independent judgement and application of reasoned arguments. A student must be able formulate this for themselves and not simply taught the "facts" or be spoon-fed information. From teaching at undergraduate level I feel it is important that students are able to challenge ideas but then also themselves then have their own viewpoints challenged. Without the student wanting to learn for themselves it is near impossible to achieve any results, so a large degree of independent learning is required.

  • History
  • 11+ (secondary) (20 p.h.)

Personal Description:
I live in York and teach French to A-level and beyond, German to GCSE, and Spanish at primary level. A former languages teacher, I have experience of teaching languages (including English as a Foreign Language) to adults and children of all ages. I also have good experience of working with children and adults with additional needs. I still work in training, but now run a national training programme for local authority and care provider staff. I enjoy languages and like to share my passion for them with others!

Teaching Experience:

I have 3 years of teaching experience in the UK and one year teaching English at university level in France. I have also privately tutored both in the UK and France. I have a current CRB check. Before I qualified as a teacher, I worked as a Learning Support Assistant helping children with Special Educational Needs.
Following secondary teaching I trained adults returning to employment. I now train local authorities and care providers.

Tutoring Approach:

I am able to differentiate my lessons to students of all ages, levels and abilities. I have particular experience in working with children with Special Educational Needs. I can tailor my lessons according to what tutees require, for example, conversational lessons for adults, or GCSE speaking test preparation for children.

Personal Description:
I am a 26 year old graduate of Museum Studies MA/HONS from Bournemouth University. My university education began with York St John University gaining a 2:1 BA/HONS. At York University Masters degree in Medieval history at and later traveling down to Bournemouth completing a course reading Museum Studies.
During my studies at York I worked as a Tour guide with the company York Walk, as a researcher, historic adviser and presenter for Unicorn films and a research volunteer for the Rowntree society. Whilst continuing my studies I worked at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and the Poole Museum as a volunteer curator.
I have since September 2011 finished my studies, I have resumed my part time job as a Tour guide in York.

I find the topic of history fascinating, over the last few years I have begun to focus on the history of the Vikings in England, Scotland, Norway and Denmark; though my interests are much more diverse and cover the 2000 year history of Britain as well as Europe. However I do enjoy enthusing about the subject, and consider the ability to pass on enthusiasm to be the key to being a successful tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have shadowed a GCSE and A level class at the Fulford School, Mathematics and Computing College‎
National Maritime Museum Cornwall took four 1/2 hour sessions

Tutoring Approach:

I take a structured approach which blends the formal and informal.
With a knowledge of the required syllabus if n formal education, a more formal and structured approach will be adopted, but in these circumstances will always encourage participation.
If teaching students who are not subject to a narrow syllabus I will always aim to nurture their own innate curiosity for the subject of history.
The goal as I see it is to pass on my innate curiosity for the subject by encouraging participation through research and leading by example.
I am acquainted with different learning styles and I will be willing to adapt my approach to deal with learners of any ability.
Indeed as I take a flexible attitude towards tutoring if given particular instructions I will be more than happy to adopt a new style
In teaching an historical subject I will always endeavor to teach through first hand documentation introducing the student to the primary material before introducing the later revisionist work.

Personal Description:
I am a published academic author with thirteen years' experience of teaching university students at different levels, including those undertaking foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I also have extensive experience of teaching via distance learning (by both telephone and online). I have a BA hons in Social Policy and Administration, an MA in Social Research and a PhD in Social Policy. I have significant experience of conducting academic research, writing and editing publications and proof-reading a wide variety of different sources.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a lecturer, online tutor and researcher, teaching, supporting, and marking the work of undergraduates and postgraduates. I have taught in - and developed teaching materials for - a variety of subjects within the fields of sociology and social policy. These have included general sociology and social policy modules, current debates in welfare, crime, housing, disability and study skills modules. I have also taught MA Disability Studies for eight years and I have supervised both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations in various subjects. I have been a private tutor for four years, and have successfully supported students in developing their assignments and dissertations for Sociology, Business Studies, Education and Social Policy degrees, as well as students working towards MAs and PhDs in various fields.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is supportive, friendly, practical and student-centred. I have taught in a variety of styles and formats to suit the varying needs of students from different backgrounds, cultures and with different access requirements. I therefore understand the need to be flexible, to tailor teaching styles and methods to each student and to allow students to identify the most appropriate approaches to learning for them. I have found that this approach to learning has not only helped my previous students to build confidence in their skills and knowledge, but it has also led to greater success in their academic achievements.

Personal Description:
I am a passionate photographer with 25 years experience based in York, North Yorkshire. I specialise in portraits, documentary, editorial and event photography. I try to evoke and capture a mood within my pictures, a feeling a unique moment, creating images that have impact. I love to work with people, and I like to be able to build up a close rapport with all the clients that I work with.

I designed and developed training sessions, assessed student performance, and evaluated training and development for students of all ages.

I have continued to develop my teaching and training working with primary level children in Photography, web design, animation and multimedia. I also teach photography workshops to all levels and am currently teaching on a individual basis , one to one.

Tutoring Approach:

I really value being able to pass on the knowledge that I have gained and thoroughly enjoy the challenges of teaching and the pleasure and joy that someone has when they have understood that knowledge and are able to then put that into practice. I like to be able to tear down the barriers that cause us to feel intimidated and take away those fears and insecurities that can make learning difficult.

Personal Description:
I have been teaching for over 10 years and am a specialist in A level chemistry. I am currently working as a teacher. I am very passionate about chemistry and recognise that it how important it is to get the grades at GCSE and A level to get into the course at university that you really really want.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher currently teaching A level chemistry. I have over 10 years experience.

Tutoring Approach:

It is really important to understand the basics for all the complicated bits of chemistry to make sense. The language of chemistry is difficult so it is important to get this right. Teaching is a two way street so I can lead the direction of the sessions but I think it is most important to assess your weaknesses and to really work on those. Lots of practice and analysis of how you are answering questions. Plus lots of nifty ways of remembering stuff! I am not going to claim that I will deliver all singing and dancing lessons but if you want to understand chemistry I will get you to do that!

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during lessons, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. Reading can be done in either setting, however it is important that both the tutor and learner participate in the process. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring.

Teaching at all levels and using a large variety of materials, tailored to students' ages and needs, the emphasis is on enjoying the process of learning the language at the students own pace as well as working towards specific goals where appropriate.

Teaching Experience:

I teach German in school to children aged 6-10 and have given private lessons at all levels and to all ages, children, adolescents and adults, in both German and Arabic, for many years. My background is in interpreting and translation and I moved on to teaching from there. One of my long term Arabic students is now studying Arabic at university level, many of my other students have successfully completed GCSEs and A levels in both languages and/or gone on to use both languages for work or leisure purposes.

Tutoring Approach:

The emphasis is on the enjoyment of the learning process, I adapt the materials used to the individual needs of my students and everything is tailored to those needs. For children the emphasis is on learning through games, play and song, for adolescents and adults games and play may still form a part of the process. Cultural instruction and understanding goes hand in hand with the learning of the language, especially with Arabic as the culture and script are so different and present special challenges. I love my work and I try to convey a love of language to my students too.

Personal Description:
Being 18 year old and just finished my A level, I want to pass on the passion as well as the tricks to ace calculating (which you will definitely find useful, having to use your thumb to press the calculator thus slowing down with things will not really help you after all)

Teaching Experience:

I have only taught 3~9 graders, but I think I may as well try approaching GCSE and A level students as well, as a teacher as well as a friend :'>

Tutoring Approach:

Definition and Problem are two factors that cover a lot of what we will be doing. However, I will tear the proposed problems down and we can have a deeper look into what those two were (unexpectedly) obscuring.

Personal Description:
I am an enthusiastic mathematician with an ability to communicate well. I have a first class degree in Maths and Chemistry. I would like to help students by either guiding and supporting them in their exam preparation or by developing their confidence and increasing their skillbase in maths.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working in a large comprehensive school in Leeds teaching 11-18yrs for the past seven years. I have experience of taking students through SATs, GCSEs, and A-Levels both in school and in private tuition with excellent results. In addition to this, I am an examiner for AQA and Edexcel exam boards, marking Alevel papers. As such, I am very well qualified to help students develop a more effective exam technique that maximises their marks.

Tutoring Approach:

I give one hour or two hour lessons which can either be in support of, and running along side, the student's school work or individually tailored lessons covering specific areas of weakness which students find particularly helpful in preparation for exams.

Personal Description:
I am Yifen. I have gained excellent teaching experience of Chinese at all levels and in Maths (From KS1 up to GCSE). I received positive feedback from my previous students and gained credits to my patience, explicit express and responsibility. I have got a degree of PhD at the School of Education at the University of Manchester in 2015. I have been appointed as a governor in a primary school in York.
Regarding my personality, I am a very easygoing person, kindly and also with a high sense of responsibility. I have been living in the UK since 2010. I have stayed in places covered students of all creeds and ethnic backgrounds. I have gained significant experience of working in the international culture. I appreciate and respect individual differences.

I like travelling and experiencing different things. I have visited a few places, such as European countries (England, Scotland, Welsh, Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Iceland and Greenland), Africa (Cameroon), South Korea, Hongkong and Marco. I love sports, especially, swimming, yoga, cycling, hiking and horse riding.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught Mandarin (online and face -to-face) to non-native English speakers with a wide range of ages at all levels both in China and in the UK for about 10 years. This deeply developed my valuable knowledge of quality teaching and meeting the student's individual needs. I have gained valuable teaching experience from helping in the primary school including the Nursery in York. I have been supporting the adult with a learning difficulty (e.g. dyslexia) in York Learning since January 2015.

I am a free-lance mandarin teacher and have been working with some language organisations, such as Cactus Language Training since 2012. I am also an interpreter/translator. With more than 10 years of both written and spoken translation experience and a first degree in the English language, I have obtained valuable oral experience as a translator in a range of sections from business (e.g.2010 EXPO Shanghai) to Education (translating the articles and interpreting at the international conferences).

Achievement:
My students enjoyed the lessons and have successfully achieved their goals. For instance, a girl achieved A* in GCSE Chinese Mandarin with my help in 2015 and two others recently passed HSK2 successfully.

Tutoring Approach:

I take all efforts to prepare lessons to meet the students' individual needs. I try my best to create a comfortable learning environment, which I think a good atmosphere is very important to learn a language and to encourage learners to open their mouth and speak. Lessons will be prepared. There will be some prepared funny stories or other materials during the lessons. So you can learn mandarin and have fun here!
My understanding is a good teacher is to be responsible for the students and to meet students' needs. My working experiences have ascertained my belief that it is essential to teach the students in front of you rather than the book. I endeavour to be the best listener and observe and identify the problems occurring during the lessons. It helps me to work out the solution and develop your potential at maximum.

If you feel a bit struggling with or tired of learning Mandarin on your own, I would encourage you to come to me and work together to achieve your goal efficiently.

There are some textbooks I have been using for the learners, such as:
Confidence Chinese Vol. Getting Started
Confidence Chinese Vol2. Living in China
Chinese Made Easy Book1, 2 and 3.
Standard Course HSK
Edexcel Chinese for AS
Edexcel Chinese for A2
Chinese Made Easy for Kids.
