My name is Lara and I am a tutor from Maidenhead, England. Qualifications: B.A Art History B.A French Literature and Language Masters degree (MRes) in Assyriology Current PhD Candidate at Oxford University French and English: I would love to teach you if you would like to learn English or French language aspects such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. I know I can help you with your speaking fluency and accuracy. I have been teaching languages for two years at a variety of levels. Most of my students improve their language skills and can express themselves and their ideas concisely and effectively. I do this by motivating my students with new teaching approaches that focus on communicative activities. I want my student to feel they have the confidence to speak the language in the real world. I also work with GCSE and A-Level students on exam response and literature analysis. I specialise in helping students identify and understand language devices. Geography: Similarly to higher-level English and French, we look at exam questions and examiners reports to highlight the skills and knowledge needed to attain the top grades. I use exam papers to identify areas of weakness so we can then work on specific skills or topics. We can then revise topics and make revision materials. Specialist areas include coasts and earth hazards, but I have experience teaching all modules. I also offer tuition in Art History and Physical Education. I will provide my students with positive and constructive feedback, and an achievable goal timeline. If you want to study with me, you can contact me and schedule your lesson. Hope to hear from you soon.

I am happy to offer you English as a foreign language, French and Russian lessons tailored to your needs as well as exam preparation (GCSE, A-level) course. I have always been passionate about languages and I am learning foreign languages as a hobby myself (Japanese, Arabic, Spanish and Italian). I am a qualified teacher with 11 years' experience in Moscow, Paris and London. I graduated from Moscow Pedagogical State University and Pushkin Institute. I hold a Master of Education (distinction). Additionally, I passed the CELTA in Paris and acquired a further DELTA qualification. I am bilingual in English and Russian and fluent in French, so I have always been a part of improving children’s cognitive development and helped navigate three different worlds as a majority of my students have been more or less exposed to two or three cultures simultaneously. I am happy to offer you English, French and Russian lessons tailored to your needs. I am a well-organised strong classroom performer who is able to effectively communicate with students from diverse backgrounds, varying degrees of ability and ages. Teaching groups and one to one teaching is equally rewarding. However, this is the latter one that gives you an amazing possibility to tailor the session towards the needs, level and capability of a student. By using my enthusiasm felt by learners and readiness to experiment, I can maintain a positive climate where students can reach their full potential. As an inspirational teacher with high personal standards, I am committed to the learning and development of my students. I have high expectations of both myself and my students, and show an interest in every student as an individual. I feel that my greatest strengths are my ability to inspire love of languages in students, to motivate them in developing a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. I prefer teaching languages through culture. The most important duties are those of ✓ helping students to improve their conversational and vocabulary skills, ✓ arranging interesting and motivating homework for students, ✓ teaching grammar through conversation, ✓ giving appropriate feedback, ✓ encouraging students to ask questions and to express their difficulties, ✓ preparing students for external examinations, ✓ keeping up to date with development in the world of teaching. ✓ tailoring teaching methods to suit the needs of individual students and preparing creative handouts. ✓ teaching with project-based learning. I work with students of different levels (Beginner, Elementary, Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate, Advanced) and age groups (preschool children, schoolchildren, students, adults). I also prepare students for Cambridge (Starters, Movers, Flyers, KET, PET, FCE, IELTS/TOEFL) Oxford (SELT) exams, TOEFL, GESE (Trinity), IELTS Academic, General training, Life skills GCSE in French and Russian, TRKI in Russian.

ABOUT ME: I am a language graduate from King's College London. I have a French and Portuguese degree and love sharing my knowledge with others. Since graduating I have been working as a full time private tutor. Languages have always been my biggest passion but I also have an interest for maths and geography, both of which I took at A-level. Although I am English born, I come from a Portuguese background and am therefore fluent in two languages. I also speak French. Having done a year abroad as part of my degree (Erasmus), it helped me to really develop my French oral skills. I lived and studied in Paris for 7 months so I am familiar with French culture, history and literature. EXPERIENCE: I worked as a teaching assistant/ tutor for First Class Learning for two years. I had the privilege of helping younger children improve their English and Maths skills, through one to one tutoring. Their ages ranged from 5- 12 years, therefore I covered various levels of material. I also did work experience in my secondary school as a teaching assistant in the French department. During these two weeks I helped GCSE level students prepare for their oral French exams. I held practice speaking exams with them and made suggestions on how they could improve in order to achieve the highest level possible. I also recently ran some official GCSE Portuguese Oral exams in a school in Islington. TECHNIQUE: I aim to provide a solid knowledge of what I am teaching, whilst also paying attention to the needs of the individual. For younger learners I like to motivate them by testing their comprehension with games and problems. I intend to make sure the individual is understanding what I am teaching by making regular pauses and ensuring they have understood the material either by asking them to summarize what has just been said, or doing a quick mini test. Most importantly, I hope to show great passion for what I am teaching, and this will encourage the student to also be passionate in their learning. I will try to make the material as interesting as possible in order to achieve the best results. I would appreciate feedback from the student on how I can be of greater help, or on their preferences of teaching style. I am open to either following the student's needs ( help with their weekly homework), or planning the lessons myself using the curriculum. I am a very patient person, who wants to make sure I am doing my job to the best of my ability. I understand with the pressures of school today, many students experience stress, anxiety and low mood related to their studies. As a person who went through this myself, I hope I can help others overcome their obstacles and give them kind words of encouragement. DBS security checked! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions! :)

I was born and educated in England. I have resided in Canterbury, Leeds, Oxford, London, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Oswestry. I gained five 'A Levels' (AAABC) at Notre Dame 6th Form College (Leeds) before attending Oxford University where I obtained Degrees in Philosophy and French. I proceeded to do Postgraduate studies in London where I was semi-resident at the British Library (1993-1998). I have been a widely published author since 1999, being the author of dozens of essays and monographs in Philosophy, Comparative Literature, Poetry and Psychology. I am co-author of the self-help book 'Reading in No Time' and author of the forthcoming publication 'French in No Time' (2020). He is a member of MENSA, the BAJ (British Assoc. of Journalists) and A3M (Academy of the 3rd Millennium). I am currently editor of the 'Nobel Prize Collection' for Living Time Books. I have taught pupils from KS1 to Postgraduate Level in the UK and abroad. I undertake an equal amount of group-teaching (lecturing/seminars/classroom) and individual tutoring (mentoring/coaching/private tutorials). I have taught in Switzerland (Geneva, Basel), France (Paris), Germany (Berlin, Munich), Italy (Milan) Poland (Krakow, Warsaw) and Slovakia (Bratislava). I am a native English speaker and also a fluent speaker of French and German. I am highly experienced in teaching children and adults with special educational needs - including Autistic Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Aspergers, Pathological Demand Avoidance), ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other developmental conditions. I am quoted as saying: "Everyone can learn - it doesn't matter how differently we do so!" I specialize in GCSEs, A Levels, Entrance Exams and assistance with Dissertations, Essays, Theses & Coursework. I have explained my approach to teaching in the following way: "With every person that I teach, whether they are before me as an individual or as part of a group, first of all I take time to observe the way in which they learn - their own particular mode of processing information. Then, once I have understood their learning processes - be they visual, verbal, concrete, mathematical, or a combination of these - I customize my own teaching approach to that student's optimum mode of intake. This usually goes a large way toward maximizing their learning experience. What I find is of vital importance in the learning journey - and which is largely responsible for making it successful - is identifying with crystal clarity the exact goals which are to be attained. I make sure that my students do not lose sight of their goal and I make sure that their 'will-to-achieve' stays at a top level throughout the educational process. Without a goal, motivation falters".

I have graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a High 2:1. I have started doing an LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law at Queen Mary University of London. I have taught more than 20 students, particularly prepared them for exams and helped them with courseworks. I also taught children, assisted them for learning a new language (both French and Turkish). I have different tutoring techniques for children: I prefer teaching them by playing games and having interactive conversations. Thus, I am native in Turkish, fluent in French and English, intermediate in Spanish. Moreover, I went to a French School from the age of 3 until 8, which is called Lycée Français Pierre Loti d'Istanbul, and I got my French Baccalaureate with Mention Tres Bien (16.2/20). All in all, my main goal is to help, motivate and support students to achieve their best. The most effective way to do this is by making sure that students understand each topic and do not hesitate to ask any questions. Thus, at the end of each session I am summarising what has been covered during the lesson. During the lessons, I am including real-life examples and stories that I have encountered in order to help the student remember and better understand. Finally, I strongly believe that informing the learner of objectives is crucial.

Bonjour! I am a 28-year-old native French speaker from the South of France. I have been living in London for over 4 years and have several years of experience teaching French to a variety of people, from young children to adults. After obtaining my high school diploma I became an au pair in the US and taught French to the children in my care (8, 12, and 15 years old). Seeing them enjoy the acquisition of new skills gave me great satisfaction! When I returned to France I studied Tourism and Marketing at University. After completing my Bachelor's degree, I decided to move to London (2017) and put my knowledge into practice as a tour guide, alongside tutoring. In February 2020 I volunteered to help to build a school in Uganda (Abode School Project). One of the missions was to share our teaching technique with primary school teachers as well as teaching them French and English. It was such a privilege to share my language and culture, whilst learning about Ugandan customs and traditions. This experience was very inspiring and has prompted me to teach French regularly, back in London! Today, I'm teaching French at all levels and I'm passionate about it. At the moment, I teach online, with the possibility of doing lessons in person in the future when the circumstances allow it again. I adapt my lessons to each person's individual needs and goals and I make sure all aspects of the language are covered - written and oral comprehension as well as written and oral expression. My approach is also to make the lessons as fun and enjoyable as possible as well as helping students to gain confidence. I encourage them to try and find answers themselves, even if they are not fully sure. It is important not to be too self-conscious about making mistakes... everyone does! Outside of tutoring, I love to spend time traveling, meeting new people, exploring new cultures. I am also a ballet dancer and I do a lot of yoga! I’m very flexible with my hours, I can work weekdays/on the weekend/in the evening. Au plaisir de te rencontrer, A bientôt! Anaïs

would like to help as many students as possible to overcome their fear of a subject and to build their confidence in their capabilities. My qualifications: - Masters Degree in Computer Science (which helped me to deepen my knowledge of Mathematical logistics and also improved my way of explaining different problems.) -Maths GCSE grade 9 -Currently: Three months of experience in a PGCE course for teachers in the UK and it deepened my skills and knowledge of how to provide outstanding lessons to my students. -Lots of experience on both face-to-face sessions as well as online tutoring on various other websites (with many 4 and 5-star reviews) -Duolingo English qualification (IELTS level 7 equivalent). I have started doing private tutoring here in the UK 2 years ago in order to share my knowledge with students as well as helping them to become confident with themselves and their capabilities. In my opinion, showing a student that they are able to solve a problem or understand something that they first thought out of reach can really improve their confidence and this is often the key to them achieving a good grade at school. Additionally, the lack of understanding from the previous years can prevent a student from learning during a lesson and make him or her feel demotivated by the subject. I believe I can manage to fix this by providing them with the right support and most importantly, going back to gaps in their knowledge that occurred in previous years. It is necessary for them to have a good foundation in their subject to help them move forward and be able to grasp more complex ideas. Furthermore, I already taught many university and mature students as well and I am always happy to modify my teaching methods to fit the age of my student. During my lessons, I aim to work at the pace of the students as it can help them not to be under pressure. I can give them all the support they need with an ear to listen to their worries and I provide lots of original exercises. Finally, the best way to learn is with practice. I, therefore, engage my students during the lesson to think about the concept they are about to learn as it will help them to feel like they are achieving something by themselves rather than being given the solution too easily. If you have any questions regarding my past or my teaching methods, please send me a message and it will be my pleasure to answer you. I wish you all the best during your learning journey!

Hi, I have 5 years experienced working in secondary schools across south west inner London and Surrey. I trained as a teacher through the computer science schools direct scheme at Raynes park school in inner London where I achieved my PGCE with merit alongside a high teaching timetable. This was followed by three years at Graveney school in Tooting and then a move away from London has found me teaching in Surrey schools where I teach a mix of computer science and maths, alongside tutoring. I have experience of teaching and tutoring maths to students in year 4 up to year 11. I have a vast collection of resources and have set up an online 'school' using google classroom to share resources with students for homework and consolidated practice, this is highly useful for parents to track content covered in tutoring sessions. I am also offering computer science tuition which I have experience teaching form years 7 - 13. I can support students with all elements of computer science theory and coding at KS3 and GCSE in python, visual basic, delphi/pascal, HTML/CSS, Javascript, java.

I am a native French speaker and have always followed the French curriculum. I passed my French Baccalaureate in 2017 (in the Scientific section) and obtained an overall grade of 19.97/20. Currently I am in my fifth year of civil engineering studies at The University of Edinburgh. I love the challenges this course raises! I have been tutoring Maths and French for 4 years and I absolutely love it! Helping others understand new material is a very rewarding feeling, an aim I am willing to work hard for. I am a patient, motivated and engaging tutor. I always try to plan fun lessons which keep the student focused. For French tutoring, I have helped total beginners discover the language as well as professionals. I adapt to the students needs but tend to separate the lesson into a first half where we learn about a new language theme (learn some vocabulary, do some writing/speaking/listening activities) followed by a more technical second half focused on grammar and conjugation. I also like to help the student discover more about French culture by translating a French song, watching the trailer of a French movie or discovering a famous French painter. For maths, the most important part of the work is practice, the more you give the more you get. We would go through past paper questions and slowly work our way through the scariest parts. I would especially focus on explaining WHY things work. That way, you will be able to apply the new theory not only on the specific example we are working on, but for any problem. I am very active and love sports, currently orienteering and swimming. Racing has helped me canalize my stress and my focus so I can gladly share some anti-stress tips before an exam!

Hello, my name is Rebecca, and I am from Scotland in the United Kingdom. I am an enthusiastic, multi-skilled and reliable graduate from the University of Glasgow where I obtained a First Class Honours in French and Italian. I am looking forward to deepening my knowledge of both languages as I begin my postgraduate course, Translation Studies, at the University of Glasgow in September 2021. Although I have not tutored before, I completed a 120-hour Premier TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) in 2018, and I spent my year abroad as a British Council Language Assistant in the Ardèche region of France. I prepared and carried out English lessons for primary aged children (3-11 years old). I am well-organised, polite and eager to share my knowledge and passion for learning languages. My studies and experience abroad have made me more aware of diversity and multicultural issues. I believe that tutoring should be tailored to the students' needs, and therefore I will adapt my lessons to your specific needs, such as focusing on grammar, vocabulary, exam preparation etc. The lessons I provide will be fun and interactive and are suitable for anyone wishing to learn more, or anyone who needs help with exam preparation. A variety of themes can be covered, and I can create lesson plans based on topics that are of particular interest to you or required for your school work. My lessons will begin with recapping what was learned in the previous week and going over any questions that you have. After the lesson will focus on a new area, whether that be grammar, comprehension or new vocabulary accompanied by exercises to further enhance your learning. The class will finish with a summary of the class and any questions asked will be answered. I assign homework after every lesson and will provide periodic progress reports. I enjoy playing piano and flute after having passed Grade 8 piano (merit) and Grade 8 flute (distinction exams (Trinity College London) and Grade 6 Music Theory (distinction) Exam (ABRSM) and therefore I can also offer tutoring in Music Theory. I can tailor your lessons to suit your specific needs, such as understanding, reading and writing music notation and revising key concepts. Specialties: Scottish Exam Board - I studied in a Scottish high school and completed National 5s, Highers and Advanced Highers
